Ezekiel 25:17Posted by

“I might be able to help there” Herbie grinned “I've got a few high calibre weapons stashed aboard my ship”
“Your ship?” Jay frowned
“Uh, yeah... I crash landed here about an hour or so ago” Herbie explained “The ship’s knackered, but we might be able to salvage some equipment from it”
“Oh, for fuck’s sake, that’s all we need” Jay sighed “Is the reactor still online?”
“Yeah” Herbie shrugged "Or at least I assume it is - The windscreen wipers were still working"
“Right we can’t just leave a ship lying around in 33AD," Jay said seriously "the archaeologists will go fucking mental; so after we've salvaged what we can, we need to overload the reactor and destroy it”
“I suspect that the Simulant will probably be investigating the crash site” Katrina interjected
Jay rolled his eyes
“Yeah,” he grumbled “there is that”
"I locked the doors" Herbie said dismissively "He'll never get in - We'll be fine!"
"I wish I shared your confidence" Cass muttered darkly
She was about to say something else, but she was interrupted by the arrival of a squad of legionaries
"There they are!" the soldier at the head of a unit yelled as he entered the synagogue "Sieze them!"
As the crew was trying to figure out a plan Jaxx cocked his head out and said in his Darth Vader voice, “Not cool man.” Then as his asthmatic breathing continued he rolled out toward the legionnaires as he said, “Eve babe I’ll like buy you guys some time.” Evelina said, “Jaxx be careful.” Then Jaxx turned on his mp3 player to the Darth Vader theme song as he approached the legionnaires.
Some crew-member were still planning while others were curious to watch what Jaxx was going to do. The legionnaires slowed down as the small one-armed skutter rolled toward them. One of the soldiers said, “What manner of creature is this?” Jaxx replied, “Most harsh bro. If you intend to hurt Eve babe then I will totally smite thee with my most righteousness hand.” Then Jaxx stopped the Darth Vader Music and played a sound bit from a movie he saw with Evelina on movie night called Ezekiel 25:17.
“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”
After the sound byte ended the soldier replied, “Are you claiming to be the Almighty?” The other soldiers begin to chuckle at Jaxx. Jaxx stares at the giggling guards before he replies, “Oh its on bros.” Before the guards could draw their clubs Jaxx whipped out his holowhips and laid his fury on the soldiers in the front. Many soldiers dropped in searing pain when hit by the holowhips. The mere sight of two holowhips coming from the one armed skutter sent fear in to the remaining soldiers as they scurried off screaming for help. Jaxx rolled back to the others and said, “Dude I’m pretty sure they will be back with more friends.” Jay said, “No kidding lets get the smeg out of here! Herbie take us to your ship now!” The crew left out of the back door and now had to get out of town before dealing with more legionnaires.
