“Everything is set out here Okav.” Captain Saladin told the science offer quietly, his suits comlink crackling slightly from the incoming machines jamming fields. Whispering wasn’t really necessary in the vacuum of space, but it was an old habit, inherited from his ancestors centuries past, before the Federation, when mankind still huddled in caves and stared up at the stars with superstitious awe rather than scientific curiosity.
“You’re reckless pale skin, brave, but reckless.” He replied, giving the power shunt a final once over with his tricoder and nodding in satisfaction at the hasty bypass. It should hold, long enough to discharge a suitable burst of energy and slow down the unknown hostiles that had taken over this far flung outpost on the edge of Dominion space.
“Here they come!” Saladin yelled, raising his phaser and unleashing a steady stream of energy at the largest of the lumbering mechanical monstrosities, the beam splintering into a dazzling pulse of light at its impact, but barely slowing the automaton as it took another ponderous step forward.
Kerensky only nodded and opened fire, not one to waste her focus on words when a situation demanded action. She allowed herself a ghost of a smile as her blast struck true, shattering the crystalline headplate of the smaller robot, it’s return fire blacenking the relay console the captain ducked behind.
“Now Okav!” Foxwell shouted, slamming the connection closed and raising her rifle as the science offer raised the power conduit feed to full strength, the machine enveloped in a dancing web of electricity. “Captain, if we intersect our beams at the creatures joints we might be able to cut our way through it before it recovers.” She stated, sparing him a brief glance and adjusting her aim at his nod of agreement.
