"Tom....my name's Frank, Frank Mcdowell...I'm a..." there was a slight pause in between sentences."....an information broker...business has been slow though, Omega does that sometimes. So...if you don't mind my asking, what brings you here to Omega?"

Tom gazed at the man. An Information Broker who carries around a Rocket Launcher underneath his jacket. Quite peculiar indeed... but wasnt the proper time to speculate.

"Well... Its kind of a long story. Quick version: we're trying to sell salvaged goods, amongst other things..." Tom referencing in within his head of the encounter with the derelict cerberus vessel. "I'll explain later. We should leave, before more mercs show up. You can probably help us with something..."

He walked with Frank back up to the previous level where the entrance resided. Some of the commotion seemed to have calmed down abit. Some of the bouncers seemed to have kept things in order. But something caught Tom's eye: that Asari girl that bumped into him earlier, was lying on the floor up against the wall.

After one of the Krogan Body Guards picked her up, and overhearing the conversation between them and the Salarian Tournament Organiser, he looked at Frank. Normally on Omega, Tom prefered to avoid trouble that endangered either him or his crew members. But some level of sympathy drove him to once again pull his gun out. If Tom were in a similar sitation: dead or alive, he would rather not be left in the vermin hands of Mercenary Scum Bags.

Ulrich activated his Omni-Tool, and paged Chiron. "I need you here. Underworld Cantina, near the entrance. He switched it off, pointed the gun, and pressed the tip of the barrel to the back of the Salarians skull. He glared at the Krogan Body Guards. "Salarians live short lives. Yours is about to end in less then 5 seconds, if you dont put her down."

UNDERWORLD CANTINA, OMEGA

It was true that salarians lived short lives. Most did not live past the age of 40, even if their high metabolism graced them with such a brief span of years. The organizer of the chess tournament at the Underworld Cantina was not one to receive such grace, and he resented it immensely. Even at twenty years old, salarian middle age, he exhibited all the telltale signs of an elderly, nearly senile member of his species. It was why his chess tournament had such bizarre and lethal rules. It was his tournament, and no one else's. No younger, fitter minds were going to tell him how to run it.

"Agreed," the salarian said quickly, dropping Quirinius V'tala like a load of hot coals. She landed on the floor with a sickening thud. The arm bones and muscles of her slimy captor had not been the strongest, whereas his mind...When he was lucid, and not in the throes of forgetting, repeating, or obsessing over something, he was a recognized genius among his peers.

Immediately after he had let Quirinius fall, he stammered, "All right. I have complied with your request. Please remove your pistol from my occipital lobe." He was visibly sweating, and his skin shone red in Omega's firelight glow.

Ulrich watched as they put her down on the ground. The Salarian began sweating. "All right. I have complied with your request. Please remove your pistol from my occipital lobe."

Ulrich lowered his gun. He motioned his weapon, to shoo off the scum. "Go on, get out of here." He glared at the Krogan Body Guards.

He knealt down beside the lifeless Asari. If what the Salarian theorised was correct, and she was drugged, then hopefully Chiron would arive and find a means of reversing the effects. He should be arriving shortly, other wise Ulrich considered taking her to a near-by clinic and later rendevous with his crew.

__________________________________________________ ____________________

Tuhrop exited the elevator, and entered the docking bay. He began coughing up blood. Although he escaped with his life from the broker's office, the Sniper had managed to sneak in another round before the Turian Captain could reach for the elevator across the crowded area of the markets.

Tuhrop saw his ship close by. Hopefully the Sniper didnt have the time to pursue him. He held onto his waste, where it was stained with his blood. He limped towards it - not before he could hear the sound of gunfire.

The ship was under lockdown; as expected. He input the code to bypass it, and entered the Valkyrie. He limped to the mess hall, where he pulled out his M-6 Carnifex, and hid behind the crates. He glanced at John.

"I take it we are in abit of a situation here?" he added.

Chiron's Omni-tool began to flash. The krogan stopped walking in order to check it. He shook his head as he read the message. The Underworld always meant trouble, and hopefully Tom wasn't in any.

"My apologies Selia, but it appears Tom requires my assistance. You can come with me if you wish," he said to her.

Chiron located the nearest elevator, and took it down to the Underworld. He walked around for a bit until he reached his destination. He spotted Tom...next to what appeared to be a dead asari.

"So what mess have you gotten me into this time?" Chiron asked.
__________________________________________________ _____

Rogue had taken advantage to escape during the firefight, sadly the only way it could go was back into the ship. It planned on entering the mess hall and then looping back around to the entrance. The plan worked so far until the heavily armed quarian entered in.

A simple recalculation and Rogue was ready to continue when a turian entered into the mess hall as well. It would only be a matter of time before the drell arrived as well. That was a three on one fight.

By Rogue's calculations, it had a 21.3% chance of winning the fight. Those were incredibly terrible odds. It did the math over and over again, each outcome proving the same. Its camo was running dangerously low, and soon it would disappear.

Then Rogue came up with a theory. Rogue only shot at the quarian, because there was an 89.5% chance the quarian would do so. The quarian only shot because it was an armed geth. If it were unarmed however. Rogue's camo wore off and it was exposed.

The chances of its survival now, with the theory showed an increase. If it went with the theory it had a 43.6% chance. Rogue dropped its pulse rifle and slowly raised both its arms in the air; the organic sign of surrender.

"So what mess have you gotten me into this time?"

Tom was glad to see Chiron arrive. The krogan approached and stared at the body of the Asari.

"We think she has been sedated, her bodily functions being haltered as part of her comatose state." he pressed two fingers on her neck to find a pulse.

He stared up at Chiron. "Can you give her something to revive her? Or are your supplies back at the ship?"

__________________________________________________ _____________

The Turian watched behind the crates. Amongst the fire, the Geth stood up and held both arms in the air. He held John's rifle down. "Hold your fire!"

Tuhrop stood up, and motioned Thiyan to do the same. He watched the Geth from across the room. Why was it surrendering? Was it surrendering? Not many people have interacted with Geth before; atleast not with bullets.

Tuhrop limped towards it, keeping a good distance away from it. There was a long silence. Minutes have passed. Tuhrop just gased into the flashlight head of the Geth Infiltrator.

"Can you understand us?"

Rogue stared at the Turian as he popped out of cover. The turian must have recognized what Rogue was doing as the turian ordered the other two to stop not shoot. Rogue kept its arms up, even though it seemed the plan had worked.

This turian had some type of authority over the other two, this made him the best candidate to speak with. It was not until the Turian moved over to Rogue that it put its arms down.

"Can you understand us?"

Rogue stared at the turian for a few seconds. It looked over at the drell, then to the quarian, and finally back to the turian.

"Yes."
______________________________________

Chiron looked down at the asari as he listened to Tom.

"I've heard of mercenaries doing a similar thing. They take a drug that makes them appear dead. She should be fine on her own, but I can give her something back at the ship if you'd like."

Mnull and Dorgan, the two krogan, snapped to attention and did exactly as they were commanded by one Tom Ulrich. The salarian followed suit. As for Quirinius V'tala, she lay heavily sedated by the atropixenine. She was not breathing, and her pulse was almost nonexistent. The only thing that was keeping her alive was, oddly enough, the xenon in the medicine which was keeping the carbon dioxide in her blood at bay. However, all was not well...

Atropixenine, being illegal on almost all planets that the Citadel Council controlled, was not a regulated medicine. Dosages of such a potent sedative could and often were tainted by other chemicals because the ingredients were so expensive. The most common culprit was a lethal and cheap muscle relaxant that was used to kill--not sedate--large predatory or rogue animals. The solution that Quirinius had bought from an irreputable volus dealer, unbeknownst to her, was 50% cheap muscicide and 40% atropine. Bad news.

Her bluish-purple skin was becoming more pale by the second. She was dying.

Chiron looked down at the asari once more. Regardless of Tom's decision, this was no place for anyone to be. He gently picked the asari up. He brought the asari closer to his face and looked at her skin. This was suppose to be a harmless sedative, it shouldn't be affecting her skin color. Chiron's eyes widened in fear.

"Tom, get my box of supplies on the ground there. We need to get her back to the Valkyrie's med bay."

Frank watched cautiously from behind as the situation unfolded. The quickness of Tom's ability to diffuse the crisis and save the Asari was impressive...most wouldn't be able to convince even the most base of criminals into giving up on their revenge...then again, he'd used tactics Frank was familiar with. And, the crew of the Valkrie was far from normal, he'd almost completely forgotten about the Krogan that was listed on the crew.

Frank remained silent as the Krogan examined the Asari....which was another object of surprise as you really never see a Krogan doctor.

"Tom, get my box of supplies on the ground there. We need to get her back to the Valkyrie's med bay."

Seeing the Asari's skin pale before his eyes gave Frank a distinct chill. He'd seen that happen. He'd see that happen alot, in his line of work. More or less, he was often the one who'd instigated such slow way of death.

He stepped forward and broke his silence.

"I recognize this..."

He needed to check for some place where the 'toxin,' so to say, had entered her body. Giving the Krogan reasonable space, Frank checked the Asari, until finding a small puncture wound on her thigh. He now had a vague idea of what was in her system.

"Krogan, you must work fast...if this puncture wound is what I think it is...then she has virtually killed herself....unless we help her within the next...well...I suppose, the next few minutes."


you very much
If a tree would fall in the woods.....would the other trees laugh at it?

Tuhrop was very suprised to hear vocal speech from a geth. There had to be atleast a few people in the galaxy, aside from the Krogan, that interacted with a Geth to this much detail. Afterall, it was widely known that they only communicate through beeping and static noises.

Tuhrop lowered his weapon. He continued gazing at the Geth.

"Why have you come here?"

__________________________________________________ __

Tom knealt down and reached for Chirons box of medical supplies. He opened it and fumbled around the mess of bandages and medigel. He pulled out a tube what was labelled "Epinephrim" - artificial adrenilin.

"Will this work?" Tom knew very little about medicine.

"Krogan, you must work fast...if this puncture wound is what I think it is...then she has virtually killed herself....unless we help her within the next...well...I suppose, the next few minutes."

Tom looked abit sheepish. "Chiron, this is Frank. Frank, this is Chiron. We'll get acqainted later..."

Tom was facing a major dillemna - they knew nothing about this girl. All they knew is that she was on the run from Eclyspe Mercenaries and Chess Tournament Organisers - strange combination. Was bringing a stranger aboard the ship a good idea.

"Tuhrop is going to kill me..." he sighed. "We'll do what we can now, and get her to the Valkyrie's medical bay. I dont think now is the time to find a near by clinic."

Thiyan stared at the Geth, looking utterly alien despite it's humanoid posture of surrender. A Geth that spoke? That acted alone?

He kept his Viper rifle trained on it's flashlight head anyway. You couldn't trust machines, their thought process was completely different; no way of telling if they were lying, just looking for an opportunity to shoot you in the back.

"Why have you come here?" Tuhrop asked.

"And how is it that you're able to speak, and act alone?" Thiyan added. "I have never heard of a Geth with any sort of autonomy".

He kept his rifle loaded and aimed.

"Will this work?"

Chiron looked over at Tom and nodded his head. He set the asari down and injected her in the left arm with it.

"It won't get rid of the drug, but it should give us more time. Once we make it back to my station, I can begin to work on her."

He looked over at Frank, and gave him a slight nod.

"My apologies for being rude, but this asari comes first. You seem knowledgeable in what she's taken. You're more than welcome to assist me once we get aboard the Valkyrie," Chiron said.
__________________________________________

"Why have you come here?"

"I wish to know more about Project Genesis. I was unable to hack into the files," Rogue replied.

Rogue used terms like "I" and "Me" as oppose to correctly saying "We" and "Us". Organics used terms like "I" all of the time. It would be much easier for them if Rogue were to do the same, so it would do that.

"And how is it that you're able to speak, and act alone?" Thiyan added. "I have never heard of a Geth with any sort of autonomy".


"I am not like most Geth. I was designed to be able to function on my own. This allows me to speak with you."

Rogue turned its attention back on the Turian.

"Turian, I believe you have the files, or a better copy than what I received. If I could take a look at the files you have, we may both be able to learn more about Genesis."

Thiyan looked at the Turian captain.

"Don't. You can't. It's a Geth! They've been fighting organics since they emerged as a civilisation, they attacked the citadel."

Thiyan chambered a round in his rifle, and brought it to bear on the Geth.

"Don't. You can't. It's a Geth! They've been fighting organics since they emerged as a civilisation, they attacked the citadel."

Rogue looked over at the drell. It did not fear the sniper rifle that was pointed at its head. The turian was the authority figure here, and his weapon was lowered. Rogue was certain the drell would not fire unless the turian said so. Rogue looked over at the turian.

"The geth only attacked the quarians because they wished to wipe the geth out. I believe you would refer to this as self defense. I also did not participate in the attack on the citadel."

Rogue looked back to the drell. Rogue believed he had a right to distrusting.

"You have nothing to fear drell. The geth that attacked the citadel now share the true geth's beliefs. The true geth do not wish to harm organics."

UNDERWORLD CANTINA, OMEGA

Flashes. Black and red. Simultaneous heat and cold. Dizzy. So dizzy...

Quirinius V'tala groaned and slowly opened her gum-encrusted eyes. Her head was pounding like a thousand pneumatic riveters trying to drill for deposits in a platinum mine. Sweat was glistening in all of her pores, and her normally smooth and dry skin now felt positively amphibious. What was happening? The Underworld Cantina and its fleeing patrons swam in a blurry haze all around her. What was happening? Could she even be hallucinating?

"Ugggghhhh..." The asari inclined her winged head slightly upward. "Where...where am I?" She had dim memories of a chess tournament, and of losing. All the rest of her life had become an unrecognizable blur.

"I wish to know more about Project Genesis. I was unable to hack into the files,"

Tuhrop blinked. It knows about the Cerberus Vessel. And the only way this mobile platform Geth could know about the data, then it would have to have been onboard the vessel during or after the salvage.

"You have nothing to fear drell. The geth that attacked the citadel now share the true geth's beliefs. The true geth do not wish to harm organics."

"Are you saying there are two factions of geth out there?" Tuhrop pressed on. Tuhrop suddenly held onto his side, and began coughing blood. "<cough> sorry. Had a little encounter with a maniac wielding a sniper rifle. I need to get to the medbay."

He stood by and stared at the Geth. He was not sure how to deal with it. Or, more of a case of whether to believe it. They didnt have the best reputation around the galaxy.

"Send our "guest" to the brig... We'll deal with it later." he stopped for a minute. "Oh yeah, and we may want to get airborn as soon as the others arive. I dont want that assassin knocking on our door any time soon."

__________________________________________________ _______

"My apologies for being rude, but this asari comes first. You seem knowledgeable in what she's taken. You're more than welcome to assist me once we get aboard the Valkyrie,"

"C'mon." Tom urged. "Hopefully the epinephrim will give us enough time to deliver her to the medbay for proper treatment."

And so they left the club, with Chiron holding the Asari girl and the mysterious "information broker" following behind. Incase things did not work out with the Broker Tuhrop had visited, there was always no harm with a second opinion.

They soon arived at the docking bay. Civilians passed by, exchanging strange glaces at them. Amongst the many starships they ran by, they soon arived at the sight of light freighter starship - with the name "Valkerie" printed on the outer shell. They arived at the airlock door - they could see it was under lockdown. Tom switched on his omni-tool and accessed the cellular network.

He gave Thiyan a call. "Thiyan, this is Tom. We have an emergency, and we would really really love it if you could open the door for us. Uhh... please?"

"You have nothing to fear drell. The geth that attacked the citadel now share the true geth's beliefs. The true geth do not wish to harm organics."

Thiyan hesitated, then slowly lowered his rifle. He listened to the next exchange, then nodded, and was going to take the Geth to the brig as Tuhrop commanded, but his pager beeped.

"Thiyan, this is Tom. We have an emergency, and we would really really love it if you could open the door for us. Uhh... please?"

Thiyan smiled a small smile and replied "As good as done". He jogged to the door control, and opened it. The door hissed open, and in came Tom Ulrich, accompanied by several others, including an asari and a human. Thiyan stared then raised an eyebrow at Ulrich.

"Our crew will soon be the most diverse in the galaxy. First a solo Geth, now an asari and another human!" He grinned, slighly humourlessly. This trip was getting much more complicated than he had hoped.

Chiron waited patiently at the door for Thiyan to come and open it. He walked through the doors and greeted Thiyan with a slight nod. He needed to to get this asari to the med bay. What stood behind Thiyan though, did shock him.
____________________

Rogue followed after Thiyan, as he was to take Rogue to the brig. It was clear the turian didn't trust the geth, but Rogue wasn't dead either. Rogue looked down at the asari the krogan was holding. It scanned the asari with its omni-tool.

"Sedative: 50% muscicide, 40% atropine." Rogue stated.
________________________

Chiron was shocked Turhop had a geth aboard, let alone the fact that it could talk. However he didn't have to time for this. He moved past the others and ran to the med bay. He placed the asari down, and began to work on her.
_________________________

"Drell:Thiyan, I believe your superior requested you escort me to the brig," Rogue stated.

MEDBAY ABOARD THE VALKYRIE

Quirinius V'tala felt chemicals, warm and soothing, flowing into her limp body. She still wasn't sure where she was, or who was presently treating her. Nonetheless, she considered it an honest-to-goddess miracle that anyone had been available to counteract the muscle-destroying toxins coursing through her bloodstream. Opening her eyes, they came to focus on a krogan.

"Father?" she asked faintly, coughing a bit. "Am I...is this the...am I dead?"

((Sorry Salzella, but the black asari you speak of is Rex's character, Selia, who is already an established crewmember aboard the ship, thus your character would know her. Tysy's character is a normally pigmented asari - from what I understand - just thought I'd let you know so you could make the proper adjustments, etc.))

Kallic had finished his shopping for the day and was currently on his way out of the markets when he heard a crackle come over his Omni-Tool's pager interface.

"'I need you here. Underworld Cantina, near the entrance.'" Was the message he'd intercepted from his crewmate Tom, it appeared outbound for another of his crewmates, Chiron. Kallic may get sucked up into his own world sometimes, but he was always keeping a watchful eye on his comrades and he could be counted on in any situation.

"Mmm, intriguing, Tom needing Chiron's assistance could mean trouble, should hurry and see if they need help," Kallic surmised to himself, wading through the market he spotted Selia and approached her, surprisingly she wasn't in trouble.

"Received message from friend-Tom, suggest getting to the ship in case we're in need of a quick takeoff Selia, could be trouble not caused by you," Kallic suggested to the black pigmented asari engineer before heading off towards the Underworld Cantina. Once at the location however, Kallic found that nobody was there. The salarian surveyed the area for any indication as to what had happened though he only came across a discarded syringe, using his Omni-Tool he scanned it for any sign as to what it was, and thus giving him the answer to "Why was it there?"

"Hmm, muscicide highly evident, bad-cheap kind too, atropixenine traces too, would say fifty-forty split. Accounts for ninety percent of the dosage, what other ten?" He mused for a bit before activating his genetic instruments. "Traces of asari DNA, hm, wouldn't explain who it was; not Selia, just saw her, but would say why Tom needed Chiron. Probably back at ship, might need to get back myself before they leave me....Again." Kallic shook his head and hoisted his bought supplies, placing the syringe in a secure place he headed for the docks.

______
Kallic got to the 'Valkyrie' to find the door ajar - in effect, that is - he must not have been too far behind the others. The Salarian entered the vessel posthaste and headed for the engineering bay where he could drop off his supplies in his above study and scan the syringe more thoroughly.

Unfortunately his efforts in deducing the last ten percent were unfruitful, so he proceeded to head to the medbay where he could use some of Chiron's equipment and even get some of his help. Kallic wasn't the proud sort, he knew when he could use assistance, even from a Krogan doctor; not only that but he trusted in his friend's expertise. Upon arriving, however, he found a surprise, an Asari, most likely the one who used the syringe in question.

Kallic approached Chiron from behind, noticing the Asari stir.

"Father?" The Asari croaked, coughing as she came-to. "Am I...is this the...am I dead?"

"Not quite," Kallic said flatly moving up to the side of the medbay table the Asari lay on. "And I've never known Chiron to have children, none he's spoken of at least, he's certainly fatherly enough though. Perhaps illegitimates might come to mind, but haven't known Chiron for "getting around" either."

Kallic grinned slightly in his cold amphibious way before turning his attention to Chiron, handing him the syringe. "Found it at the scene, nice loud traces of Asari DNA on it, assume it's hers, know what was in it, but worried, ten percent is unaccounted for, can't get a fix on it with regular scans; own Omni-Tool's genetic instruments on the blink, can't work my study's instruments without it working either, need your equipment, and most definitely your skills, Chiron."

"But never know, might just be water for all we know," he continued, glancing down at the Asari on the table. "Can never be too careful, though."

Kallic turned back to the Asari with a calculating gaze, scanning over her body with his Omni-Tool then asked plainly, "What happened to her anyways? Looked like firefight at the Cantina, must assume it happened because of her. Thought there was chess tournament there - was planning on joining when done shopping - can't imagine docile game like chess could turn so brutal; what, was it run by a senile Salarian like myself?"

Kallic's comments and questions came in an unending stream of speech only stopped by the fact that he was reading the results of his scan - and chuckling at his last remark; many of his words were meant as a joke to his friend Chiron, not knowing he might be saying things not too far from the truth, or how that might affect the situation.

((Hooray for poorly structured posts!....Whatever.))

Tuhrop was sitting on the bench, with a blood stained metal tray holding a bullet and tweasers laying beside him. He watched the scene take place as he applied the medigel over his wound.

"I think the real question is..." Tuhrop begun, staring at the comatose Asari and the human with the walrus moustache. "Is who are these people and what are they doing aboard my ship? As if a geth on board wasnt enough."

There was silence. Tom was the one who broke it. "...We have a geth on board?"

"I think you're avoiding the question." Tuhrop enforced. "... sorry, I was chased by some Sniper-wielding lunatic throughout the markets. He killed the information broker I met, and I barely escaped with my life. Its obvious that data is more trouble than its worth: and worst of all, we know absolutely nothing about it."

He stood up from the table, and disposed of the medical waste. "We have to get airborn ASAP, before that sniper could conjure up another crude method of execution: like planting a bomb on the hull of our ship!"

MEDBAY ABOARD THE VALKYRIE

Summoning all of her strength and courage, Quirinius V'tala slowly hoisted herself up on her elbows. Her vision was still hazy, but not quite as blurry as it had been a few moments ago. Whatever the krogan doctor had injected into her bloodstream was definitely working, even though the young asari had absolutely no idea what it was. She managed to smile weakly at him.

"I...I guess I should thank you for saving my life," she said warmly, "if that solution I injected wasn't quite what I thought it was. Stupid chemical dealers! I knew something wasn't quite right about that volus, or the way he was acting. Still, did I listen to my better judgment? No, just like in the chess tournament! I remember losing, and the salarian wanting to kill me, and then all hell broke loose when I started to run. I injected the sedative when the bullets started flying, and then..." She sighed. "Nothing. I must have been completely unconscious from that moment on until I wound up...here?" Quirinius glanced around the medbay. "Where am I, exactly?"

Frank was amazed at the diverse nature of the Valkrie's crew....humans working with Asari, Quarian, Krogan, even Drell. That amazed him that they could even get along on a joint vessel.

"Is who are these people and what are they doing aboard my ship? As if a geth on board wasnt enough."

A Turian.

Now that complicated things. Frank despised Turians...their rigid, anti-human sentiment, had so devastated many of his fellow squad members during first contact. But this was the only way to complete the mission, so he'd need to be diplomatic...and not kill the Turian when the opportunity came.

"The name's Frank, Frank Mcdowell. I helped your friend, Tom, out of a tight situation when several Eclipse mercenaries came along. I need not go into the details, but here I am...on 'your' ship, I believe. I, too, sell information..."


you very much

(thanks Master_Archon )

Thiyan walked the Geth to the ship's brig, pistol in hand. He had a distrust of machines that went beyond merely the threat the Geth represented, and even though he knew it wasn't entirely rational, he was still distinctly uncomfortable.

"Ship, V.I... whatever, prepare yourself against hacking attempts. Geth are the most technologically advanced race I know, and it would probably pay to be cautious."

Thiyan turned to the Geth, and nodded into the open room. "I can't force you, the gods know, but if you seek this 'Genesis', and you really do wish co-operation with organics... then I think it would be for the best if you stayed here until Tuhrop decides what to do with you..." Thiyan shrugged.

He turned to go, but hesitated. "Even if you did try to escape or fight... once we're airborn we can't escape either way. Do you want to stay here, and avoid disturbing the crew further? Or do you want to sit in on the discussions?" Thiyan raised an eyebrow the inscrutable machine.

"Your choice".

Chiron let out a laugh, as Kallic spoke with the asari.

"I'll have you know I was quite the bachelor a few hundred years ago. Feel free to use my equipment Kallic, I'll assist you once I make sure both this asari is alright."

Chiron turned his attention back to the asari.

"This is the Valkyrie my dear. You should stay here for at least another hour. Then you can walk about that ship if you wish....as it appears we must be leaving."
______________________________

Rogue stared at Thiyan as he presented the machine with a few choices. Rogue quickly did the calculations in its head.

"I believe I should stay here until your superior or another speaks with me. Drell:Thiyan, would I be able to clear up any concerns you might have with me?" Rogue asked.

Tuhrop walked towards the bridge, where the cockpit resided. The pilot seat was empty.

"Naut'aun! Where the hell are you?" Tuhrop announced. Soon the Hanar floated into the cockpit. "We need to get this bird up in the air fast." Tuhrop added. "I dont think we will be visiting this place again any time soon..."

It was hard to tell the expression given from a Hanar, but it could be assumed that the floating Jellyfish was confused. "How much did I miss out on, Captain?"

"I'll explain later. Just get your keister glued into that chair of yours and get us the hell out of here!"

"May I point out captain, that we Hanar do not share similar digestiv-"

"NOW!" Tuhrop barked.

The pilot did as he was told. The Valkyrie detatched itself from the docking-bay platform, and hovered in mid air. The engines fired up and flew the freighter through the downward structures of omega. Soon the red jellyfish was shrinking into the distance, as the Valkyrie soared away from the asteroid field.

"Specify a destination?" Ghost enquired.

"Anywhere thats not here!" Turhop replied.

"Very well, the Fathar star cluster it is!"

The Valkyrie engaged the FTL drive, and soon entered a spinning vortex of stars. Ghost rested his hands behind his head.

"Alright, we oughta arrive there within less than an hour." Naut'aun "said" happily.

"Well done, Naut." he turned around and walked out of the cockpit. "I have something I need to attend to..."

_________________________________________________

"This is the Valkyrie my dear. You should stay here for at least another hour. Then you can walk about that ship if you wish....as it appears we must be leaving."

There was a sudden rumble and turbulance. Soon the heavy vibration stopped.

"I think we have already left." Tom eyed around the medical bay. He looked back at the Asari, and added a continuation of the story.

"Anyway, we found you in the club just lying on the floor. Scared off the Salarian and the two Krogan Body Guards, and called Chiron for assistance. Then we took you aboard, treated you and then happily ever after."

Tom made a slight pace around the room. He stopped and crossed his arms. "Unless of course we get stalked by Eclypse Mercs and Chess Fanatics?"

((Ah, and I was gonna make a second character to be the pilot!))

"I'll have you know I was quite the bachelor a few hundred years ago. Feel free to use my equipment Kallic, I'll assist you once I make sure both this asari is alright." Chiron responded to Kallic's remarks.

"Thus illegitimates come to mind," the amphibian retorted simply, barely a hint of sarcasm in his voice to indicate the jesting behind his words; retrieving the syringe from Chiron as he wasn't doing anything with it.

Kallic continued to listen to the hubbub around him but most of his attention was on the slow processing results of his Omni-Tool's scan of the asari. His genetic systems may be on the blink but that didn't mean they didn't work altogether, plus he always had regular scans too.

"Anyway, we found you in the club just lying on the floor. Scared off the Salarian and the two Krogan Body Guards, and called Chiron for assistance. Then we took you aboard, treated you and then happily ever after." Kallic heard Tom say as he somewhat anxiously paced the medbay floor. "Unless of course we get stalked by Eclypse Mercs and Chess Fanatics?"

"Chess Fanatics no, Eclypse Mercs yes....Well, maybe; probably not," Kallic added in, finishing with his scan report. "Chromosome deletion minimal, somewhat higher RNA degradation and decay however. Allover genetic structure okay, but cellular destruction high, especially in the muscle tissue; not surprising with mixture of muscicides and atropixenine together, when everything shuts down things shut down, body cannot process waste and regrow tissue when blood isn't flowing, blessed to have survived, must have had hints of other drug toxins in the syringe. Ketamine perhaps? Xenon? Nitrous oxide, perhaps, condensates are hard to store in warm, lighted environments, no matter."
"Would suggest allowing for some cytogenics stabilization, but don't know what longterm effects of the drug will be, especially with ten percent of it being such a mystery," Kallic finally paused to turn to Chiron. "Not medical expert - that's why I ask you - would you agree that longterm observations of her physical stability and overall health would be best? Or do you feel she'll be fine with the 'regular' release procedures?"


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."

MEDBAY ABOARD THE VALKYRIE

Quirinius V'tala shook her head, trying to clear the cobwebs--and the sudden realization that she was no longer on Omega--out of it. "I can't believe it," she said. "Wherever you're going, and whatever you're doing, it seems like I'm a part of it now! Not that I mind," she added quickly. "I was becoming a pariah on Omega, or at least in the Afterlife nightclub. I was winning too much at the quasar machines and the gambling tables--not to mention the chessboard." She blushed ruefully. "Aria T'loak was getting suspicious, and it doesn't pay to have her breathing down your neck. I'm Quirinius V'tala, by the way." She smiled by way of introduction. "I'm glad to meet all of you."

"Not medical expert - that's why I ask you - would you agree that longterm observations of her physical stability and overall health would be best? Or do you feel she'll be fine with the 'regular' release procedures?"

Tom stared at Kallic with a confused smirk. "Not a medical expert? And all that just came from the top of your head?"

After Quirinius explained her former occupation, Tom scratched his head. "Aria T'loak was getting suspicious, and it doesn't pay to have her breathing down your neck. I'm Quirinius V'tala, by the way." She smiled by way of introduction. "I'm glad to meet all of you."

"Tom." he pointed to himself. He looked over at the Salarian and the Krogan Doctor. "You've aleady met Kallic and Chiron. And our captain; Qui'in Tuhrop."

He looked back at her. "Which by the way; you may want to speak with him in regards to your current situation and figure out what to do with you."

__________________________________________________ ___________

Tuhrop walked from the bridge, and walked passed the medical bay. He took the stairway down towards the brig - where Thiyan and the Geth resided.

It stood in the cell where it was imprisoned by a mass effect barrier. It was in the middle of a conversation with the drell. The turian joined in.

"We're heading to the Farther star cluster for temporary refuge until we figure out our next course of action." he turned to the Geth.

"I have questions for you. Its not usual to be in the presence of a geth where it can speak vocally. Or maybe our sub-dermal translation implants have gone haywire. But thats beside the point." he crossed his arms. "Are you going to pose a threat against me or my crew?

"I believe the long term observations would be best for Quirnius," Chiron said, not wanting to take any risks.
_______________________________________________

Rogue looked over at Turhop when he entered the brig. Rogue watched as the turian stared at it.

"Are you going to pose a threat against me or my crew?

Rogue looked Turhop for a few seconds. "I do not seek conflict against the organics."

Thiyan put his arms behind his back and regarded the conversation between the captain and the machine.

"I do not seek conflict against the organics."

"What were you searching for then?" Thiyan asked. "This 'Genesis' you're looking for... what is it? Was it something we found on that freighter? Captain, do you know what it's talking about?"

MEDBAY ABOARD THE VALKYRIE

Quirinius stepped a bit closer to the krogan doctor. "Would that be...a problem for you? I mean, I don't want to intrude or impose myself upon this ship or its crew. If I'm feeling up to it--meaning if this counterfeit batch of atropixenine doesn't continue to have bad side effects that debilitate me--I'll help out in any way I can. It's the least I can do to pay you back for saving my life." The asari winked and held out her hand. "In my book, you're heroes."

"What were you searching for then?" Thiyan asked. "This 'Genesis' you're looking for... what is it? Was it something we found on that freighter? Captain, do you know what it's talking about?"

"It was part of the reason why we were on Omega." Tuhrop began. "When we encountered the derelict Cerberus Freighter, we found an encrypted data file on the ship's main computer."

He activated his omni-tool around his wrist. He searched through his archives to pull up a holographic representation of the file they encountered, written in a series of characters and numbers Tuhrop could not understand - the only thing understandable was the file's title: Genesis.

"Whatever this thing is, it almost costed me my life. I was with an information broker, trying to sell this. In the midst of negotiations, a Sniper took out the broker and his guards. He's been chasing me around the markets, up until now."

Tuhrop continued to gaze at the orange holographic projection of the Genesis file. "My guess, it was an agent for Cerberus; trying to clean up their own mess."

The captain looked back at the Geth.

"So what is your interest with this? Has it got something to do with the Geth?"

"So what is your interest with this? Has it got something to do with the Geth?"

"It does not," Rogue said.

Rogue stared at Tuhrop for a few seconds. Rogue always answered questions straight forward. It had to remember that organics tended to need more than a few word answers to their questions.

"I saw the vessel and was curious. I downloaded a copy of the files to my omni-tool and attempted to hack them. I could only decipher the word "genesis"."

Tuhrop continued staring at the Geth. He wondered if it had any reason to lie. Is a machine even capable of lying?

"I saw the vessel and was curious. I downloaded a copy of the files to my omni-tool and attempted to hack them. I could only decipher the word "genesis"."

"So you want to help us decypher the file?" Tuhrop recalled. "You're asking to join us? But I thought the Geth are allied with the Reapers - sentient machines that threaten organic life?"

__________________________________________________ ___________

Ulrich watched the Asari shake Chiron's hand, with a sense of doubt behind his eyes. Was it a mistake bringing her onboard? Could she be trusted? Afterall, she did compete in a sport that involved slavery as the grand prize.

He also felt the same about Frank. Could he be trusted? Was he really what he said he was?

Ulrich shook his head, and rubbed his eyes. He had better things to worry about then trust issues. "I got to get back to my duties. System Diagnostics wont run themselves." he exited the medical bay, and headed towards the command deck computer, near the cockpit. It was during then that he remembered the Captain mentioning about a Geth onboard.

"That was before the Revelation. Most Geth did not worship the Reapers. They saw the Reapers as Old Machines and the Geth that did join as Heretics. After Revelation the Heretics rejected the Old Machines and now all Geth share the view points of the True Geth," Rogue stated.

It was interesting watching the Geth, and the responces it provided. Not many people have had the opportunity to interact with a geth this up close. Tuhrop saw very little reason how or why a machine would be even capable of lying.

He sighed. "I hope I dont regret this..." he reactivated his omni-tool, and disabled the mass effect field barrier imprisoning the Geth.

"Alright. If you're going to stay aboard my ship, then you will follow me under my command as your captain. So what should we call you?"

Rogue stepped forward and eyed its new captain. It nodded its head in acknowledgment of serving under him.

"Captain, you can call me Rogue," Rogue said. It extended its arms out for a handshake, something the organics did.

MEDBAY ABOARD THE VALKYRIE

A sensation. Tingling at the edge of her tentacular scalp. "I know that twinge," thinks Quirinius V'tala, "and it means one thing: Enemies are nearby, most likely synthetics. I didn't spend all that time on Omega hiding out and spying on rogue drones for nothing. This time, it'll be put to use..."

"Excuse me," Quirinius said out loud, "but we could be in danger. I sense an electronic presence that is foreign to any ship that I've ever been on--not that I've ever been on too many ships, of course. I don't mean to draw my weapon, but I'm going to in order to find out what's making my nervous system become so heightened. Don't be alarmed. I--I think I'll be okay, for now, but if you want to, you can follow me and watch my back. Er, my '6'."

Quirinius drew her assault rifle and began to sneak her way down toward where she sensed the electronic signal becoming stronger and harsher.

"I can't believe it," Kallic heard the asari say. "Wherever you're going, and whatever you're doing, it seems like I'm a part of it now! Not that I mind," she added quickly. "I was becoming a pariah on Omega, or at least in the Afterlife nightclub. I was winning too much at the quasar machines and the gambling tables--not to mention the chessboard." The asai blushed, something rather odd to see indeed. "Aria T'loak was getting suspicious, and it doesn't pay to have her breathing down your neck. I'm Quirinius V'tala, by the way. I'm glad to meet all of you."

"Mm, yes yes, glad too," Kallic murmured as his thoughts drifted back to the syringe in his hand staring at it, as if concentration would reveal the mystery ten percent.

"Not a medical expert? And all that just came from the top of your head?" Tom asked rather confused, yet ruefully enough to bring Kallic out of his reverie.

"Oh, no no no, wait...Yes, don't have a doctorate...Degree, diploma, whatever; no real qualifications to be medical expert - biological engineer - close cousin to geneticist occupation, have to know about drug effects on DNA, RNA, chromosomes, and the different protein structures: dextro-aminos, and levo-aminos - studies in drug fields required course for my occupation. Can't give you medical counseling; can give you highly intellectual advice on such subjects, or could restructure DNA to give you a tail," Kallic explained, blinking with his wide amphibious eyes he continued. "So, no, not medical expert Tom, but yes I knew all that off the top of my head, comes with being Salarian."

Tom introduced the lot of them that were in the medbay at the moment, "Tom. You've already met Kallic and Chiron. And our captain; Qui'in Tuhrop." Kallic raised his hand when Tom spoke his name to indicate who Kallic was exactly.

"Which by the way; you may want to speak with him in regards to your current situation and figure out what to do with you." Kallic just shook his head as he went back to examining the syringe.

"I believe the long term observations would be best for Quirnius," Chiron finally responded to Kallic's question.

"Mm, good, then you and me can get started on analyzing this syringe, ten percent small, but unknown, very dangerous," he replied.

"Would that be...a problem for you? I mean, I don't want to intrude or impose myself upon this ship or its crew. If I'm feeling up to it--meaning if this counterfeit batch of atropixenine doesn't continue to have bad side effects that debilitate me--I'll help out in any way I can. It's the least I can do to pay you back for saving my life. In my book, you're heroes." Kallic just rolled his large eyes and shook his head yet again.

"Well thank you," Chiron said shaking her hand. "Its no trouble at all."

"Nothing is trouble to you Chiron; trust medical expertise, but not personal judgment call, that should be Captain's decision," Kallic was a former STG, he is rather strict in terms of chain-of-command, Tom had mentioned going to the Captain to see if it was alright if she could stay and Kallic had to agree, it was the Turian's ship after all. Yet here the asari was schmoozing up to Chiron; Tom had found her, she should be shaking his hand. Kallic glanced over at his human crew mate and noticed suspicion behind his eyes for the asari, he didn't understand the full reasons why - yet - but he concurred with the feeling. He nodded at Tom as he mentioned leaving.

"I got to get back to my duties. System Diagnostics wont run themselves."

Kallic was just about ready to set up the equipment to run diagnostics on the syringe when the asari spoke. "Excuse me," she spoke out loud, "but we could be in danger. I sense an electronic presence that is foreign to any ship that I've ever been on--not that I've ever been on too many ships, of course. I don't mean to draw my weapon, but I'm going to in order to find out what's making my nervous system become so heightened. Don't be alarmed. I--I think I'll be okay, for now, but if you want to, you can follow me and watch my back. Er, my '6'."

Kallic raised what counted as an eyebrow at this and looked over at Chiron, then back at the asari, but, she wasn't there!

"Goodness no!" He flailed his arms above his head in exasperation, following after the asari. Catching up to her - which wasn't far considering her condition of just coming out of a coma and being connected to medical equipment - Kallic proceeded to grab the top of her rifle, with his other hand on her shoulder he tore the weapon from her weak hands. "No! No no no no no, Chiron said you must rest for at least an hour before movement, if you think of him so highly you'll get back in that medbay and do as he says. Besides, think I heard Captain and Tom talking about Thiyan taking care of a Geth onboard, don't know the details, but not important, if there was danger Captain would notify the crew, us. You're in no condition for playing commando! See how easily I disarmed you, didn't even use a real disarming technique." Kallic sighed deeply. "If Thiyan is with Geth then we're fine, more so if the Captain is there too."

Kallic looked at the assault rifle in his hands and shook his head, "besides, shouldn't even have weapon out on ship, BIG no, unless Captain says so, or there's good reason; and especially not newcomers, don't trust you enough. Firing weapon on ship is dangerous anyways! Could hit a seal, or fuel line; this isn't streamline military vessel, it's a transport vessel, civilian ((I'm assuming)) model, could kill us if a bullet hits the wrong thing! This is not a toy, this is a weapon of mass destruction, you are not a commando subterfuge....ing enemies aboard ships, you are an asari, mind you a tough one, but not in enough shape yet to go around playing soldier. You fire this and you are making us a bad day!"

Kallic activated his Omni-Tool and entered the assault rifle's remedial systems and adjusted it to his own weapon harness, fitting the weapon to his back promptly. "Will get this back when Captain has approved; won't ask for any other weapons, but will trust that you respect us and our ship enough not to draw them, or to give them over willingly." The salarian shook his head and rubbed his large eyes, he turned her around with his hand on the small of her back (between the shoulder blades) he escorted her gently and slowly back to the medbay.

"Must apologize for yelling, can be over-concerned sometimes; both with, mmm...your safety....And ours. Not Doctor, but patients important just the same, people important, minored in Xeno-cultural and religious studies, changed the way I saw things, was just like other salarians, cold-blooded intellectual; amphibian, technically still amphibian, but could change that myself," he laughed lightly to himself, clearing his throat. "Anyway, please accept apology, but also respect our authority, been on this ship years, as a salarian that is a long time,know what I'm talking about, and know what I'm doing."

Kallic smiled as genuinely as he could to ease any tension the asari still had.
