Bridge

"Mother's wrath!" K'lizh spat as the ship rocked under the new Jem'hadar's assault. Thankfully, their shields were still up, albeit drained from the recent paces they had put the ship through. K'lizh had already decided he was going to stress a return to the Alpha Quadrant for ship maintenance in his next report. "Captain, we-- oh no," K'lizh's blood ran cold at the sight of the captain lying on the floor, blood seeping from her head. He slapped his commbadge as he ran to check her pulse. Fortunately, she still had one. =/\=Medical emergency, the captain has been injured! =/\=

His eyes frantically scanned the room to seek orders from the next in command... before he realized that he was next in command. Hissing slightly, he stood up. Rushing to his console, he increased what precious little power he could to the shields, drawing from the weapons systems. He remained standing, hunched over his console. Being in command, his traditional station was not where he belonged... but the Captain's Chair seemed awfully big right now. He had sat in it before, during night shifts, but sitting in it with the captain unconscious at his feet felt wrong. "Galloway, evasive maneuvers. Do not return fire. Rylu, try to hail the new ship."

 =/\=K'lzih to Commander Hawk. The Jem'hadar's friends have arrived, and they're jumping to conclusions. The Captain is incapacitated. Please ask your new friends to explain the situation to their compatriots. =/\=


[Bridge]

Ian swore in Gaelic in unison with Klizh's own oath as he banked the Tempest hard into the cruiser's attack taking them out of the Dominion ship's line of fire. He was about to reverse direction via a barrel roll to get into a firing position when Klizh's order sunk in.

Ian barked a quick "Aye Sir!" As he cancelled the roll and tightened his turn to stay out of their line of fire.

"Bloody hell! Maybe someone should tell the Prophets that the next time they dump someone into another time, they need ta push them farther!"

[Jem’Hadar Fighter]

Jada was too proud an Orion to admit to being hurt or weak; no, in her confusion, her concern was for her team-mates who'd taken blows and scrapes in the skirmish with the Jem'Hadar. And maybe it would get the Jem'Hadar on-side. Any left over for herself would be a bonus.

Then all Nine Hells broke loose.

'Sir! Time for a getaway.' Seeing the brawl erupt in the corridor, Jada charged right in to save Lambe and th'Rasdar. Only she crashed into the wall, bounced off, and hurtled into the nearest Jem'Hadar (fortunately the aggressor) with a shoulder slam. At this point, no matter how clouded her mind or slowed her reactions, instinct and muscle memory would see her through. She sprang, rained a sharp punch into the Jem'Hadar's face. The Thiratin Orion would struggle through against all odds, even if those odds were a troop of enraged Jem'Hadar. She took a cracking blow to the ribs, but seized her opponent's fist and spun under his guard, behind his back, brutally locking his arm high then driving his face into the wall.

Meanwhile, th'Rasdar pulled Lambe out of the skirmish with the rival Jemmies, throwing him back to back. The Andorian found this exhilarating, glorying in this face-to-face vengeance against the old foe. Snarling, he gut-punched one, then hammered its head, feeling fiercely exultant.

Alongside the Chief, they fought their way through the corridor, clearing a path out of the ship to escape, in a storm of punches and kicks and rough slams into walls only a foot away, forcing them into desperate close-quarters combat. Lambe was terrified but holding up bravely, focusing on each new foe, focusing on his training, working to defend, block, lock, disable; to aid his team-mates; and moving as he'd been trained. Jada fought like a machine, punch-drunk but instinctive, beating up and wrestling down the Jem'Hadar and knocking them cold or choking them out with startling grace before moving fluidly to the next. Fortunately, no one had drawn bladed weapons and blasters yet, the Jem'Hadar still reluctant to kill their own.

[Jem'Hadar Fighter]

As James fought his way through the corridor with Jada and the assault team he heard somone call out from behind.

"Commander," Devs called,"I've lost control of them. Kokos'Ixun has influenced many of them to mutiny. If you help us escape I can return to my fleet and explain the situation to them. Tell them what you told me. But you need to take my men and I with you."

James didn't have time to think it out properly in the midst of the brawl - or whatever this was. "We only have room for you and Tenoxt'itlan," James replied.

Devs didn't have much of an attachment to his men. They were little more than tools to him. Well most of them anyway, Tenoxt'itlan had proven loyal and capable so Devs accepted Hawk's offer and began to follow them with Tenoxt'itlan taking up the rear. "Commander, I should warn you that Kokos'Ixun is my fleets highest ranking Jem'Hadar, not just that of this squadron. He has called for a rescue. It is likley a Dominion warship will arrive to rescue him. I will have no swag over it. I am mearly the commander of a squadron, he is the ranking Jem'Hadar of 2,800 ships. Be careful, commander."

=/\= Commander Hawk to Chief Solluk. We need to be evaced now. Jada, her team and I are now accompanied  by a Vorta and one Jem'Hadar. We're almost back on the surface. =/\=

James then revived a message from K'lizh. The captain was injured. James hoped the Tempest wasn't to badly damaged but he knew K'lizh and Ian were capable.

=/\= We're not going to be able to call them off. You have my authorisation to fire on that ship at your discretion. You're in command now. We're almost at the runabout with two new 'friends'. Be ready to receive us. Once we're on board I need Ian to get us the hell out of here. Good luck, K'lizh. I'll see you soon. =/\=

James was strangley uncharacteristicly sentimental at the end, a lot of it was to convince himself more so than to convince K'lizh. He knew K'lizh and Ian could take care of the Tempest but he wasn't sure how well the Tempest could last in a fight in its current state.

"Let's get moving, Jada," James said as they neared the exit.

[USS Tigris

Solluk's hands were in motion as his mind processed developments.  Problems so rarely seemed to pace themselves so that one could be solved before the next developed.  Were he a sentient with a less logical heritage, he might have suspected some universal trickster at play.

Then again, there were universal tricksters.  The Q regularly toyed with lesser species.  Who was he to deny the possibility of a bored, cruel God?

Making sure his Tellarite sentinel was safely strapped in, he set the Tigris into motion.  It was his intention to meet the away team half-way.   He'd have beamed them up directly, but the Commander had mentioned that some of the Jem Hadar would be coming along.  Solluk had no way of knowing which was which.  Not from here.

As the Tigris took to the air, Solluk made sure that phasers were charged and torpedoes were armed.   They might have to back up the Tempest when they reached orbit, and Jada would need everything ready to go.

Nearing the downed Jem Hadar attack ships, Solluk turned the runabout so that the loading ramp was facing it, and set the ship down.   "You have door-gunner duty," he told his singular passenger, "I have fear that our team may be pursued."

With the runabout down, he opened a com channel.

=/\= The Tigris is at your disposal, just outside of your present location, Sir. =/\=

Bridge

A medical team promptly appeared on the bridge and whisked Captain Rellek off to Medbay, leaving the Captain's seat... wide open. K'lizh ordered a subordinate to take his place at Ops, and sat down. There was no ceremony to it. No chance to take in the magnitude of what he was doing. He planted himself into the chair and tried not to feel like he was sinking into it.

“Ops, return power to the weapons systems. Helm, I know they're more maneuverable than us, but try to get us underneath them. Tactical, their weapons systems are too numerous. If we try to disable those, we'll be here all day. And we don't have the time. Target... target their warp core. If they won't see reason, out choices are only a pointless death for ourselves or an honorable death for them. That's where we have the advantage. We want to live, they don't care either way.” He took a deep breath. “M... Make it so.”

Ian's eyes never left the viewscreen, but he responded with a quick.

"Aye Sir, but I disagree that they are more maneuverable, they just think they are."

As soon as he finished speaking, fired all dorsal thrusters at full power. The Tempest immediately began to sink below the orbital plane in a brutal downward arc. He then applied full power to the port forward and starboard aft thrusters, which threw the ship is in a hard skid that brought the forward weapons into line with the Dominion cruiser, which allowed tactical a clear shot at their attacker.

In the three-dimensional space the ships occupied, the viewscreen provided a mere fraction's view of it. K'lizh had to form a mental picture of his head, keeping track of the aliens' position relative to their own. "Fire!" he snapped. Phaser beams lanced out, causing ripples in the shields alongside the Jem'hadar's underbelly.

 =/\=Engineering... I want the nacelles to vent warp plasma for three seconds on my mark. We are going to smokescreen the Jem'hadar.=/\=

"Tactical, give me a full spread volley of torpedoes. Galloway, venting plasma is going to give us a slight burst of speed, but I want some more distance between us and the Jem'hadar as they're coughing on our fumes." As the Jem'hadar ship loomed over them, passing over the viewscreen, K'lizh sneered.  =/\=Mark! =/\=

Ian smiled at Klizh's plan and waited for the plasma to vent. As he waited, his smile became feral as he thought of a way to add to the Dominion ship's pain.

"I fully intend to ignite the plasma, Mister Galloway," K'lizh said. His deep, resonant voice had taken on a dangerous edge to it.

Our shields have taken enough of a beating today, and I won't risk self-inflicted damage."

[Jem’Hadar fighter]

'Moving, aye.' Jada agreed grimly, with a pirate's grin under a bloodsoaked face and helmet. She stood aside and urging Hawk and their guests past. Tenoxt'itlan stayed close by Devs as his bodyguard, while th'Rasdar and Lambe led the way out. Jada, meanwhile, fought a valiant rearguard against Kokos'ixun's resurgent mutineers. Adrenaline and pain cleared her mind; more, she seemed to be getting better the longer she fought, buoyed by the famed Orion constitution and a rhythm that was almost musical, one she sang to 'I get knocked down, but I get up again. You are never gonna keep me down!' With every blow she took, the Thiratin fought more strongly, more desperately, and faster, displaying every inch of savagery and power of the notorious Orion animal woman married to Starfleet discipline and skill. Her victory had to be memorable.

At the intersection, she was ambushed by three Jemmies, growling and pelting with scaled fists as the green woman evaded half with lightning reflexes, resisted the rest with gritted teeth. Outnumbered and with limited space, Jada made every move count, used every bodypart (but not her head, she'd maybe done enough of that). Slipping between her foes, she rocketed a jab into one jaw, retracted, rammed a sharp elbow into the other's gut. Twisting snake-like in place, she launched a meteoric knee into the third, then snapped her leg down and back, stamping the sole of her boot into the first one's shin, then double-tapped his knee.

As he went down, she went up, springing on powerful legs, and climbed the Jem'Hadar like a tiger up a tree. Knees clamped about his head, her weight bore him down; she spun, she crushed, twisted, snapped his neck. Smashing into the deck together, she mule-kicked the other remained Jem'Hadar, but not before she went down beneath a pile of reptiles. Well, she'd had worse dates.

Ground-fighting now, Jada moved agile as a serpent, writhing and twisted, entwining her limbs about her foes. Sitting on one, legs locked together, she wrapped arms around the other's neck and choked him out. Finally, she reached back, slammed her seat's face into the deck until he stopped moving.

Jada rolled out, sprang to her feet, and bared her teeth at the remaining Jem'Hadar, shocked by what they'd just seen, and hissed in mad exultation. She pointed at the stunned Kokos'ixun, his face still bloody after her previous efforts. 'You cannot defeat this Orion! Hells, you can't even kill me! All you can do is fall and I'm not interested.' Dismissing them, she turned and walked swiftly away, flexing her shoulders; they didn't follow.

One Jem'Hadar trained a polaron rifle on her back, but Kokos'ixun slapped it down. She'd earned her victory, and her life. This time.

[Planet's surface]

Pelting outside, the team collected their weapons where they'd been politely deposited before entering the ship. Jada rejoined her squad, bloody and beaten but unbowed, her uniform torn and splattered with two kinds of blood. She saw the Tigris touch down closer, smiling to think Solluk had thought of them. 'Here's our ride!'

She dropped a force grenade near the entrance to discourage pursuit, then hustled her team to the runabout. She went last, as always, turning and firing a scattering of phaser shots at the Jem'Hadar who now poured out, interrupted only by the grenade explosion. At the airlock, Chav squealed triumphantly and kept the Jem'Hadar at bay with a stream of phaser fire as the team  piled into the waiting runabout. Jada ducked under Chav's fire, then returned a hail of her own, holding the airlock until the runabout was ready to close up and rise.

[USS Tigris]

Solluk kept glancing back to be sure everyone was aboard before taking off.  As he might have expected, Jada joined the Tellarite in door gunner duty, seeming to relish it.  There was a lot of blood on her.  And unlike most circumstances, much of the blood seemed to be her own.  It looked like someone had used a rifle stock to bash her in the face.

Still, it didn't impact the enthusiasm with which she defended the craft.

Once everyone was aboard, Solluk lifted off without specific orders to do so.  As he cleared the ground, he rotated the runabout horizontally and reached over to the co-pilot console.  With a deft movement of fingers, he activated the phasers.  Beams lanced down like artillery, obliterating silicate matter on the surface and dissuading anyone from making surface-to-air attacks.  Great big clouds of rock and dust rose up to obscure their departure as they continued to climb.

Soon they were well out of infantry weapons range, and the runabout kept lifting up.  Solluk spoke up, as they needed to decide on a course of action.  "The Tempest is apparently under attack.  I think the Tigris and Euphrates should ascend as quickly as possible to provide support, Sir."

With the absence of immediate danger, he waited to see if the Commander agreed with his advice before implementing it.

[USS Tigris]

Thankfully back aboard the Tigris and lifting off of the nameless planet, Jada didn't take the gunner's seat. Honest with herself, panting hard and punch-drunk, still riding high on adrenaline and aggression and her own sense of awesomeness, and probably concussed she didn't feel quite capable of operating a small starship right now. She offered the chair to Commander Hawk 'Sir?'

Afterward, stowed her weapons and her loot: a genuine Jem'Hadar kar'takin, still with its RFID dogtag and its owner's hand. 'Now that's paying the iron price.'

Afterward, she pulled and mostly tore off her shredded and blood-spattered uniform jacket, which she used to wipe her face largely clean of blood before tossing the rags in the corner. She affixed her combadge to her tanktop underneath and tallied the damage. Jada's bare arms and face, and doubtless the rest of her body, were a mess of bruises and cuts, the natural green mottled with orange, brown, and black and crossed with bloody orange cuts, including a split lip and black eye. Nothing seemed to be broken, though – fractured, possibly, but not broken – and her helmet with its miniature inertial dampers saved her from serious (sometimes self-inflicted) head injuries. She gazed down on these wounds with pride and satisfaction: these were marks of battle, strength, survival, and victory, they told her story and told her glory. 'Beautiful.' she murmured with a cocky, bloody grin.

Silently, she directed Bex and Park to flank their two guests. 'Welcome to Starfleet. Your home is now our home.' She quickly disarmed the Jem'Hadar Tenoxt'itlan and the Vorta Devs of their weapons; if they resisted, they could always join her collection.

"Have no fear Sir, standin' by here ta jump ta full impulse as soon as the first torpedo is away!"
"Then do it, full impulse. Tactical, fire!" K'lizh exclaimed. Then, without pausing for breath,he ordered, "Viewscreen on rear view."

Before them, the viewscreen winked into an image of the Jem'hadar ship, slowed and struggling to emerge from the cloud of green-blue warp plasma. A spead of blue-white torpedos raced towards it, igniting the plasma and the ship enveloped within, causing a flash of blinding light that would have driven the bridge crew to blindness were it not for the viewscreen's automated filters. As the plasma burned away,the Jem'hadar ship was adrift, missing a nacelle and with several fires dotting breaches in its hull, drifting now toward's the planet's gravity well.

"Try hailing them again," K'lizh ordered. "See if they're more willing to talk now."

"Then do it, full impulse. Tactical, fire!" K'lizh exclaimed. Then, without pausing for breath,he ordered, "Viewscreen on rear view."

Before them, the viewscreen winked into an image of the Jem'hadar ship, slowed and struggling to emerge from the cloud of green-blue warp plasma. A spead of blue-white torpedos raced towards it, igniting the plasma and the ship enveloped within, causing a flash of blinding light that would have driven the bridge crew to blindness were it not for the viewscreen's automated filters. As the plasma burned away,the Jem'hadar ship was adrift, missing a nacelle and with several fires dotting breaches in its hull, drifting now toward's the planet's gravity well.

"Try hailing them again," K'lizh ordered. "See if they're more willing to talk now."

[Bridge]

Ian tapped his console and the Tempest jumped forward at three quarters of the speed of light as soon as the photons were still in flight. As the explosions engulfed the Dominion cruiser, he banked hard and came about as he came to a stop 30,000 kilometers from the stricken ship.

"Serves you right you bleedin' gits! Now all we need is some bloody Prophets ta send you to the center of the bloody Big Bang, that will settle that problem."

[USS Tigris]

James let out a deep sigh of relief once they were back on the Tigris. He was glad to have a breather but he knew they weren’t out of the woods yet. There was still a Dominion Cruiser to deal with. James laughed slightly at Jada as he heard her murmur “beautiful”. He often had trouble understanding her mannerisms but he was nonetheless always thankful for her always having his back.

[Space]

The Dominion cruiser was badly battered and burning. It was now caught in the planet’s gravity well. It was defeated. Seeing no other option the Vorta finally answered the Starfleet ships hail.

“We surrender. We wanted only to rescue our soldiers. Leave this system now. The next ship that arrives here won’t be defeated so quickly.” After the brief statement the Vorta cut communications and the cruiser veered off closer to the planet and away from the Tempest.

[USS Tempest]

Fortunately, the Tigris and Euphrates were able to dock back on the Tempest without an issue from the cruiser. Once they were safely back on board, James had Jada escort and guard Devs and Tenoxt’itlan to his office while James ran to the bridge.

“K’lizh. Well done,” he said as he stepped off. “You did well,” the young XO smiled. “Now lets not test our luck with whatever they send at us next, eh? Mr. Galloway, get us out of here.”

[Executive Officer’s Log, Supplemental]

The discovery of the lost Jem’Hadar fleet is worrying to say the least. A fleet that size could seriously affect the already fragile balance of power in the quadrant. The Tempest has taken Devs and Tenoxt’itlan to rendezvous with another ship from that fleet. They plan on explaining to their superiors what the found and convince them the war is over. Hopefully they will join Odo’s New Dominion and the Great Link. There are still more radical remnants of the old Dominion that may prove more alluring to some, however. Starfleet will be monitoring these developments carefully. One mistake and we could have another devastating war on our hands...

[Sickbay]

Julia's eyes opened slightly as a sharp beam of light penetrated her eyelids and caused her to recoil in shock. Her head moved slightly from side to side as she wiggled her fingers. As her eyes adjusted to the light she instantly recognized the lights on the ceiling, she was in sickbay. Everything seemed to slowly drip back into her memory. "Jem'Hadaar." She muttered as she tried to sit up.
