Caine's mission

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

*A raggety man is escorted in shackles into a cold, undecorated room*

*Inside he finds two minifigs at a table, waiting for him*
Unknown male minifig: Greetings comrade...
Bum: Uh...
Unknown: Leave us..
Union Soldier: Yes sir

Unknown: So nice to meet you colonel... do you not remember your time in the army?
Bum: I don't wanna talk about that.. I don't know you.
Unknown: No, you don't. but I know you!
*he looks over notes in his pocketbook*
Unknown *reciting to himself*: Family executed by Assyrians.. joined officer academy in R.2014,  fought in campaign in the east.. Discharged for severe wounds suffered in battle...
Unknown: Well!. how is it that a distingushed colonel finds himself drunk and homeless, fighting in bread lines under a bridge?
Bum: What do you want?
Unknown: For you to redeem yourself and serve the Union once again.. Sofia!

*Sofia approaches, and takes off his shackles*

Unknown: You see, Comrade. you were selected for a once in a lifetime opportunity.. Tell me, have you ever been to the southeast?
Bum: What? Galacia?.. No, I never
Unknown: Yes.  Splendid.. You served in the Army, you know they are considered a serious threat to the Union, so close to us and all. We've already fought several inconclusive battles with them.
Unknown: President Putin h as a plan to swing this predicament in our favor.  The damned AN has placed Sanctions on us and monitors will be watching for any violation of the DMZ... But the Galacian's western systems happen to be in chaos right now fighting a full fledged rebellion of dissident peach brothers.

*Sofia places a drink on the table for him*
Unknown: The President has decreed that we will support these rebels with direct and indirect aid. But we cannot just send the army in there, it will be a formal declaration of war.  Instead we plan to send a full division of our best troops in disguise as mercenaries and separatists... The Galacians will take note of our new forces, and blame us for arming and training fighters.. as they always have before... they will complain to the AN, and the AN will turn them away, citing the atrocities their forces perform on a regular basis.

Unknown: And you will be their commander
Bum *Chokes on drink*.. What? me?
Unknown: We need to maintain plausible deniability,  but we need someone with experience,  who can't be traced.... you have commanded operations before.. and you were largely forgotten about after you retired.. you are exactly what we need
Bum: But you don't even know my name.. do you?
Unknown: I know your name,  but from this point on,  you are known as General Caine..
Caine: But why?
Unknown: Plausible Deniability... Caine doesn't exist..

ImageIMG_20171021_181226 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Unknown: Well.. he did,  you had a predecessor..

Image20171021_182019 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Unknown: There was one before you,  we had sent to the Gold Sector,  but he was loud, brash, and conspicuous.. He decided to go on a little party one day, attracting a lot of attention

ImageIMG_20171021_182300 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Unknown: And got himself killed in a bar brawl hanging around with the wrong people... This is not what we are looking for from you, we need discretion.. You must remain a figure in the shadows.. lest ISA intelligence discover our ruse.

ImageIMG_20171021_181226 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Unknown: Your mission is twofold.  First, you will be securing the loyalty of the various Peach militias and rebels operating in the western theatre of the gold sector.. Then,  with your troops, henceforth known as the "Wagner" division of Zelenogorsk... you will assist the rebels in carving out territory for us in the western systems, make it so difficult on the ISA that they give up the territory, like they did for the Zagorians..

*Sofia enters holding a uniform and hat*

Unknown: While you are in command of "rebels"... you are a General now.. and you ought to look the part!.  Get dressed, general.

*Later, they go out into a compound to inspect some of the troops*

Unknown: this is Wagner division.. these will be our forces in this operation.. your troops..
Caine: They look a little... uniformed?
Unknown: Of course General.. these are the "freedom fighters" of the Zelenogorsk system.. and "Zelen" wants to be a free peach colony afterall. These types of things happen all the time in the Gold Sector, it's not as out of place as one might think.

*Caine looks at some of the vehicles*
Caine: Why are they purple?  
Unknown: Huh,  I guess that's what the soldiers decided on to be Zelenogorsk's "Rebel colors"... I don't know... it doesn't matter.. hah!.. I'll leave you with Sofia, I'm sure you have work to do.. General!

*A mechanic walks out from behind the tank*
Caine *thinking to himself*: What an odd device that minifig is wearing..

ImageIMG_20171021_185009 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
*Suddenly, Caine goes blind, his head feels like it's been stabbed right through the top and he goes completely cold.. he then hears voices in his head*
Yuri *Inside Caine's head*: Greetings comrade general..  I see you have taken an interest in me.. I admit I have taken an interest in you, too..  I am Yuri,  and together we will accomplish great things as we bend the galaxy to our will... my will..
Actually, it's a fuck off machine, haven't you ever seent one before?
