First Force/Task Force Command - Inspection Tour
Location: USS Generation
==/== USS Generation ==/==
Sophie walked into the bridge portion of the Generation and dialed up Enterprise and waited for the image of a COMM officer to appear. "This is CWO Sophie LaBranche (can't remember how the access codes go) I need to speak to VAdm Roberts regarding Operation Mop Up." Sophie said to the officer.
"One moment." The officer put the screen on hold and called for the Vice Admiral while Sophie was waiting she looked over the schematics they weren't that good but it'll be able to get them into the building and hopefully secure one of their high ranking officers.
Roberts was still on hold, waiting for his call to Starfleet Command to be answered when his terminal beeped. He switched screens and gave a nod seeing it was LaBranche. He hit accept ad smiled, "Gunner, how goes the op?" he asked, keeping the zoom so only his shoulders could be seen since he didn't have a shirt handy.
"Slow the locals aren't big in talking with us and after they heard about what we did on that first planet the pirates are becoming more aggressive and taking it out on the populace." Sophie said with a small smile glad to see that Roberts healed nicely. "But we did get a bit of information." She said sending a file of information. "This is from a CI we've found she mentioned a large church outside of this city and it might hold some of the higher ups we're going to take a look tomorrow and then formulate a plan of attack." She said finishing.
Roberts nodded and thought for a minute. Starfleet still had him on hold so he didn't have permission to take pre-emptive action. On the other hand, to capture the brass might prove helpful. He drummed his fingers on the desk and twisted his face before nodding, "verify the targets are there, if they are your clear to extract them, no civilian casualties," he replied finally.
"Copy that." Sophie said, "so how much heat are we taking for that rescue op of ours?" Sophie asked knowing that the Federation can't be happy with that type of op without it going through the higher ups.
Jason chuckled, "none, Gunner. You took the initiative to rescue a three star, I don't think they'll hit you up, and if they try they have to get through me, a Rear Admiral, a Commodore, and two Commanders," he said with a wink and leaned forward on his desk, "bear in mind while on this op that I'm not ordering you in with Commands consent, do what ever you can to keep it from going south. We need to come out of this with intel that's solid from that group of deranged brass. However, if anyone asks from Command, I didn't inform you of any of that and I made it a direct order," he added seriously, not about to let anyone take a fall for a call he made.
"Okay." Sophie said again giving him a smile, "also is there any chance that Cooper has any pictures or names of anyone in this group that she didn't see?" Sophie asked knowing that they only had intel that they've collected but if Cooper had any that would also help them in the long run on this op.
I'll send you the Brazen class USS Absolute under the command of Major Janet Ramilo," he replied and relayed a message to Blyx to contact the ship, "it's small and has a cloak so if you have to run, they can get you and go. As for Commander Cooper, she's gone ill, but I'll send everything she gave me," he replied and hit send on the already cued up information.
"Alright thanks well I better get some sleep we've got a busy day tomorrow." She said smiling, "I'll call back in tomorrow to send in our report and hopefully everything goes well." She said knowing that this op was going to be a long one and it was going to be pushing team 3 a lot farther then they've ever gone.
Roberts nodded, "good hunting, Gunner," he replied with a nod, "and be careful, Roberts out," he added then closed the channel and sat back, bringing up the Command channel. Now he just had to request clearence for ops that were already starting, but such is the way it goes at times, sometime it's better to ask forgivness then permission.
With the link cut and all information transferred to a PADD Sophie stood up and walked out of the runabout and to the table that they also set-up. It allowed them to interact with the fleeters that were brought along to pilot the ship and also stand guard while they were away from the ship.
