The Jackpot

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.

Image

Lund:"Let me check the schematics."

Image

Lund: "There should be a control booth above you. From there you should be able to access the corridor."

Clint: "I see it."

Image

Clint: "Harris, go see what you can do up there. You go with him."

Image

Harris: "Alright, I got it."

Image

Lund: "Status report? Is it opening?"

Image

Clint: "Yessir."

Thug: "Kinda weird how the only thing keeping us from getting through is a keypad."

Lund:"Is that a problem?"

Thug: "Nah, I can get through. Still's weird to see this in a Trattorian station."

Image

Ian: "This place predates the Tratts and their tech. Shit, I wouldn't be surprised to see a combination lock somewhere."

Image

Image

Clint: "Alright, we're in."

Image

Lund: "Alright, let's get this mission done."

Image

Image

Image

Lund: "See the objective?"

Ackerman: "I think so."

Image

Lund: "Okay, give me a description."

Image

Clint: "It's got a light red hue, and it seems to be pulsing sightly..."

Ian: "It's fucking pink and shiny."

Clint: "...And in a forcefield."

Lund: "There should be a terminal in the room, try to crack it from there."

Image

Clint: "Got it."

Image

Lund: "Okay, now place it in the case."

Clint: "That's it?"

Lund: "Yep. It should be inert, so there should be nothing to worry about."

Ronin techie: "Guys?"

Clint: "Should be?"

Lund: "Yeah, I mean out intel says..."

Image

Ronin Techie: "GUYS!"

Lund: "...One minute Away team."

Image

Lund: "...minute away team."

Clint: "Huh. Guess it is inert..."

*BEEP*

Image

Ian: "The fuck was that?"

*BEEP*

Ackerman: "Shut Up!"

Image

Ackerman: "...We've got company..."

Lund: "What do you want?"

Image

Ronin: "I want my current pay, doubled. On top of that I want 2 million for each man I lost on this job."

Lund: "Is that it?"

Ronin: "No, there's one small thing I'd like. A High-yield fleetbuster antimatter bomb."

Image

Image

Lund: Well...

Image

Lund: "Here I was thinking it would be something unreasonable."

ELSEWHERE:

Bruce: "Enzo?"

Image

Enzo: "Good news, I hope?"

Bruce: "I'm afraid not. The American's managed to recover whatever they were after before we even got to the system."

Enzo: "Hmn. I take it you have a plan to solve this...dilemma?"

Bruce: "I do, but..."

Image

Bruce: "It's somewhat drastic."

LOCATION: Aboard the USV Slow Dawn

Image

Clint: "Are you certain giving The Ronin the bomb was a good idea?"

Image

Lund: "Absolutely."

Clint: "But what If he uses it against us?"

Lund: "He knows better than to bite the hand that feeds him. And besides, what we got is worth far more than what we paid."

Image

Clint: "And what exactly did we get?"

Lund: "Oh, only the most unique item in the galaxy..."

Image

Lund: "The last of the Nyphillian Antiimmortalium."

Man, this is so excellent. Really well done. Your pacing is fantastic and you do a superb job of maintaining a sense of suspense. I also enjoy how complete each shot feels.

Antimortallium is like a catastrophe magnet that destroyed a whole civilization. I hope Lund knows what bog of bullshit he's getting himself into.

Excellent soap, by the way. Photos were a little shaky at times, but that tends to happen in soaps with a lot of action.

This is 10 types of pornography, starting with Scenery pr0n and ending with Lore pr0n, amazingly done.
