GM Medium Laser Facility Space Port
Doneval II, Federated Suns
Having placed a call not two days prior, Michelle Hernandez sat wringing her hands absently. Lifting the receiver, she placed a new call.
"Hello?" The male voice on the other end of the line said, as the call connected.
"Is this the Cavaliers?"
"Yeah, what's left of us. Lt Hammond speaking. Who's this?"
"Mi...Michelle. Please, try to understand, I never meant for any of this to happen!"
"Ok, slow down. You never meant for what to happen?"
"The dropship that landed an hour ago doesn't belong to the 4th Sword! I saw three peopl

3 klicks south-west of Daniels' group
Warlord Yakadomo commanding
Seeing the fireball of the crashing fighter a few klicks east of their current position, Warlord Yakadomo turned his considerable machine in that direction. His radar display had picked up the Cavalier fighters as soon as they entered this quadrant, though what they were fighting was a mystery to him. Even as they lost one of their number to some unknown enemy, he couldn't help but smile.
"Ahh Suluskin, it appears we aren't the only threat awaiting th

Dropship 'Federal Overwatch'
Precentor Lucas Wilson read the transcript again. It was taken by a small satellite they had stashed in orbit, disguised to look like a common weather sat, the type used by just about every one of the great houses. It had recorded the dogfight between the thoroughly out-classed and out-gunned DCMS and the Cavaliers. Sighing, he sat back in the chair on his ship's bridge. His second, ROM special agent Warren, smiled.

Act-3: "Aftermath, and a decision..."
"Geez Skipper, you look like hell." Hammie said, eying the heavy bruising on Alex's face, which ran from his eyes to his chin. His jaw, now wired shut, the docs they had aboard, along with Med-Tech Green's help, set the breaks and did what they could for his pain. He smiled wanly. Tara and Val, along with Amy, Adele and Anton all stood around his bed.
"You'll be on an I.V. diet, heavy on proteins, for at least two weeks Alex. I don't want you to move your jaw at all. Tara or one of the nurses will bring you liquids you can sip through a straw, but that's just to
Act-4: "Taking some time off...To heal and rebuild..."
Alex regarded the man seated across the table from himself, Tara, Val and Anton. On most days, he was GM Senior VP of Operations, Doneval II. Today however, he was simply Mitchell Graham, with his executive secretary, Michelle Hernandez, and he was trying to decide how best to deal with this mercenary commander who he more likely than not, just recently threw under the proverbial bus, to try to save his own skin. But before he could ponder further, Alex spoke.
"1 Billion C-bills." He said simply, causing both Mitchell and his secretary to gasp.
"Jamison, Banori, and Diablo... Oh my..."
Office of the Primus
Primus Hartford regarded the man standing before her. He had a long and distinguished career within the Order, but as of late, she wondered whether the man was thinking with the brain the divine had bestowed upon him, or was his ego driving him.
Tasked with finding and securing the 200-odd children cast adrift after the Davions discovered their 'project', she ordered them and the entire research arm moved to the Periphery world of Banori, home of one of the most advanced Castle Brians still in functioning order.
