Ares VII "Get your zombeh slayin' face on!"

Post by Sylverstalker on Sat Nov 28, 2009 11:27 am

ARES VII
Survive the isolation
Fear the parasite
Fight the horde


A Cargo ship destined for earth carrying a dangerous weapon of mass destruction within one of its holds has been ambushed by maurading aliens. Midway through the attack the aliens retreated leaving many wounded on the ship, both of thier kind and that of human flesh. An intergalactic parisite had struck the alien crew and has now been passed through bodily fluids to the wounded humans, few survived the attack without being infected. Some of these survivors were lucky to be in the sustinence store room when the attackers struck, the room had been sealed off by wrekage, allowing those inside to avoid death and infection. Soon they would be discovered by the infected, then they will have to fight to survive.

Crew ID Badge

Name: (duh)
Gender: (Not too hard either)
Physical condition: (Strong, beard, tall, other distingushing features)
Rank:(Role on the ship eg. mechanic, security, etc)
Other information:

Okay guys, there is the scaffold someone should be elected to post thier profile up and then add the other profiles to that post.

Lilian listened to the static on her s-comm device, her heart sinking.
"Sssshk...ssssshk....ssssssssshhhhhhhh." That was how the last message ended, and there had been nothing since, no matter how many times she called out "L. Arman trapped in cargo 3, please send retrieval team, over!"
She put her s-comm back into her pocket and looked around at the other people trapped in the bay with her with tight lips.
"Sounds like no-one coming, at least for the moment. If S-comms are down, the ship has been seriously compromised and they have bigger things to worry about than a bunch of people stuck in a substinence store." She explained to her raggedy crew, beginning to scrutinize them for the first time. It was her job to keep her head in a crisis, and already she was planning ways for them to get out of the storage compartment.

Ethan was pacing the room as Lilian tried to contact anyone outside. He nodded as he heard that no one was coming. "I suppose we should be glad to be alive, Those outside couldn't escape the aliens," he stopped. A noise outside had alerted him that there seemed to be people alive outside. "That was a growl," he muttered, loud enough for those in the room to hear. "The aliens must still be here."
He pulled out his carving knife, getting courage from the weapon. He was a butler, he wasn't known for his bravery against aliens.

Lilian stood up, pulling out her stunning baton, and stood in front of the butler just in case. His type wasn't known for their combat skills, but he did have good hearing, there was a growl from outside.
"Yep, I hear it too." She told him. "But they cant get in, so theres nothing to worry about." She pointed out.
It was true indeed, the metal of the doorway lining had been crushed and fallen down, the twisted breakage now completely blocking the door, shattering the motion sensor which opened it and jamming down into the other side so the door wouldnt even slide if they pushed it.
Lilian shrugged at it, then turned to look accross the room. There were always air ducts- this was a spaceship, and every room needed an air supply.
She pointed to a grate up in the corner of the room, unreachable at this point, and just big enough to crawl through.
"If we want to get out of this place, we can go that way. I think we should take a scouting party just in case the ship is completely overtaken by the aliens, and we stand a better chance just staying in here."

Ethan placed his knife back at his belt and walked over to a sturdy looking crate, heaving it over to underneath the grate, sure he could climb into it from there, and help someone else up. Only the mechanic was taller than him, but he didn't seem fit to move from his current position.
"Okay then, Lilian and I will go for a look around the ship, everyone else, please stay here, we won't be gone too long." He turned to Lilian, then back to the grate, climing on the box and pulling the gauze out of the wall before hauling himself into the air duct. He turned around with difficulty, holding a hand out, waiting for Lilian to join him.

Lilian took his hand and deftly pulled herself up.
She poked her head out of the duct at the other people.
"Stay here. There is food, you are protected. Yell down the duct if anything compromises your security. We will be back in 20 minutes. If we are not, do not assume we will come back at all." She put everything in plain terms for these people, then pulled her head back into the air duct.

"Well sir, it looks like your leading the way." She told the man matter of factly in front of her, and began to shuffle along the tiny dark tunnel.
"By the way, what is your name?" She asked. "If you forgot my introduction in the chaos, I am Lilian." She chatted as they walked further, trying to keep both their minds occupied so that terror wouldnt set in and make them irrational.

"Pleasure to make your acquaintance Lilian, I am Ethan. Butler to the captain, though that job probably doesn't exist anymore." He heard another growl somewhere in the ship. "Whatever's happening out there, I don't like the sound of it."
They reached an opening, which, Ethan noticed after looking through it, led to the corridor leading to the bridge. He braced himself, and levered the grate free as quietly as possible. Looking out, he sighed in relief. "I'm not going to pretend I'm not glad that whatever's growling isn't here. Do you want to get out here and look around?"

Lilian tried to peer around Ethan.
"Being the butler, do you have a communication link with the captain?" She asked, and listened for the growl again. She wasn't amused by his poor attempt at nervous humour.
"If the coast is clear and you think we can get back in in a hurry, then yes we will hop out. If there is no way to get back in, then we will survey other vents until we find one." She told him the plan shortly, used to being in a position of command over other citizens.

Ethan looked down, "Here's as good a place as any." He lowered himself to the floor, "We could get back up in a hurry, so let's have a look around." He turned and looked at the carnage around him. There were a three human bodies and an alien body that he could see, along with part of a collapsed ceiling. He turned towards the door to the bridge, his heart jumping when he saw that it was only half there.
"We should be getting back to the others," he said, just before a predatory snarl went through the air, louder than the growlings from before. "There's something moving in there," he muttered to Lilian, his voice shaking. "I can see it," his voice was a hoarse whisper now, "but..." he could hardly go on, "It looks human."

Lilian jumped down, surveying the bodies with distaste.
When the growling started again, she flicked on her stun baton, the high pitched whine barely reaching the human hearing scope.
"Hello?" She called out to the human shaped thing firmly. "Hello, sir, could you tell me if you are alright? What happened here?" She asked, standing in front of the butler yet again, looking ready for action but not really believing this man would attack.
He growled again and shambled closer, something menacing in the noises he made.
"Sir! Please give me your answers and I will leave you alone." She called to him, raising her baton.
He moved closer, half tripping on the wreckage, the buzzing and dim fluorescent casting strange lights over his facial features.
Lilian started, this man was heavily injured. In fact he shouldn't have been standing.
"Sir! Are you okay?" She called out to him, her voice hitting a high note of tension, yet not moving towards him.

After a few seconds of fear at the sight of the mangled man hobbling towards them, Ethan composed himself, raising his knife.
"My partner's baton can only stun, but sir, if you don't stop, I'm afraid that my knife can do much more than stun." The figure stopped, and Ethan grinned in relief to Lilian, before hearing the thing give an unearthly roar and started a hobbling charge at them.
Ethan took a step forward, stabbing the thing in the chest, feeling safe again for a second, before it started trying to bite him. He kicked it back, yelling in surprise. As it came at him again, he swung his blade at the monster's head, this time the thing went down, and stayed down.
"Th-that was the captain." he said shakily.

Lilian was stunned, not by her baton, but by the behaviour of the butler and and captain.
She walked up to the body, now laying sprawled on the floor, and rolled it over with her foot.
It was leaking a blood-like fluid, and its mangled, blotched and disfigured face was indeed the captains she had seen so many times on the ships morning address, now leaking out of a gash in its spinal cord.
"Scared ShitStar!" She swore, and kicked the man back over, her eyes wide, but her composure back to non-alert now that no others were approaching.
"What happened to him?" She asked under her breath, and looked sideways at Ethan who was still brandishing the bloody knife.
"Germ warfare?" She asked out loud, and waved for him to put the knife away and be quiet. She pointed to the vent, and began moving, when another growl came from the bridge.
She looked over her shoulder, and saw a swaying figure, then another growl and gurgle came from the other direction of the hallway they popped out into.

"Let's get back to the others," Ethan said.
The rubble in the corridor would slow down the creatures, but even so, they'd have no more than fifteen seconds to get back into the air duct. The infected snarled and started their lope towards them, the one from the bridge coming slower, as it's leg was obviously broken.
Ethan ran to the grate, "I'll pull you up!" he called to Lilian as he climbed up and into the vent, turning around to help her.

Lilian put her baton into its casing in her belt, grabbed both Ethans wrists in a monkey grip and walked up the wall in a quick step, hurtling into the vent headfirst and hitting her head on Ethans. She saw stars for a moment, and it was in that moment that the mutilated people reached the grate.
There was no time to pull the grate up and cover the hole, and Lilian just pushed and shoved Ethan in a frenzy, further down the vent, so that she could get her feet securely inside the vent.
"Move! Move! MOVE!" She yelled at him down the vent, hands and feet flailing around and somehow moving her down the vent even though she wasn't crawling in a usual way.
The groans echoed down the vent eerily, making the monsters seem much closer than they actually were, and Lilian kept scrambling for cover until they reached a corner and she was able to look around behind herself.
She stopped, panting. "What the Klak was that?" She swore again.

Ethan shook his head, as he continued moving more slowly through the vent.
"I don't know. It could be an infection from the aliens, but... I just don't know." The moaning coming down the air vent was getting quieter, and as of yet there were no bangs to suggest they'd got into the vent. "We have to get out of here, though. "he said, sure of that one fact, "we have to get to the escape pods, and hope they still work, then go home..." he trailed off, leaving a silence, broken by the moaning behind them.

Lilian mumbled a reply, too shocked by the disturbing image of the dead captain to be able to plan very far ahead. She pushed the thought to the back of her mind.
"Yep. The escape pods are too far away to travel by vent though.." She told him, bringing up the ships map in her mind.
When she reached the end of the vent she was met with the same team as before, looking just a bit more disturbed as they had heard all that went on in the vent. It was easy to get out, and once she was in front of more people, she regain her composure and went on to reporting mode.
"There are hostile humans and many casualties outside." She reported to everyone. "We will need to get to the escape pods."
She didn't tell them the horrific details, or that the captain was now dead.

Ethan slid down the wall and sat on the floor as soon as they got back, breathing deeply. When Lilian had finished explaining the situation to the rest of the group, Ethan pointed out something she had missed. "You'll need weapons. These humans are violent, and no reasoning will help."
He stood again and wiped the blood off his knife, making sure some of the others in the room watched him do it. "I hope you know how dangerous just getting out of here will be."

"da, good ving i have my trusty "hamster" then" (Nikolia brandished his spanner larger in size than his forearm), despite its weight Nikolia carried it on him at all times, it was the only worldly possession he had carried into his job on this ship and it just happened to the right size for the enormous bolts used in the air locks and such in the ship. "so is that vent our only option, i am not being so sure that your vent is large or study enough for Dimitri", Nikolia smilled, ribbing the man that he respected so much and who had given him his chance to build his life anew with his job on this ship.

Arclight had been quietly muttering and fidgeting in the corner, tinkering with whatever mechanics he could get his hands on. As the other two came back into the locked room, he approached the butler. "What do you mean hostile humans? Did you see any of them clearly? Were any of them missing limbs? Oh please tell me you weren't bitten!" He walked away, fingering his over-large welder (it had a powerful flamethrower attachment that he'd only been allowed to keep for 'pest control' and because the head mechanic trusted him... that poor, deluded fool).

He began pacing. "It has all the signs, follows every stereotype. We might all die, or we might make it. If it's really true, the losses will be catastrophic! We can't let this ship touch down on any populated area." Facing the group, and seeming to notice them for the first time, he stood erect. "One thing's for sure. If what's happening out there is what I think is happening out there, there's no way in hell we're going to be able to wait it out in this room."

Lilian gave Arclight a strange look.
"Yes, they were hostile as in vicious, the people we saw were disfigured in some way." She raised an eyebrow "Neither of us was hurt, one came at us, but Ethan used his knife."
She nodded at the group consensus to leave the room, then looked Nikolia up and down.
"You're definately too big for the vent. How you got to be a mechanic I dont know. We will have to find you another way." She looked over at the door. Its not like these rooms needed to have many doors, and there was still only the one.
She looked at Nikolia, then at the doors twisted metal, then at Nikolia again.
"You couldn't move that could you?" She asked him, then looked over at Arclight.
"You there, could you use your big machine thing to melt us a hole in this door?"
She took leadership once again, and a head count.

Nikolia looked at the door and noticed the same familiar bolts screwed as supports to the doors framework at each corner, "hamster vill make short work ov these" he smiled, knocking the bolts out in seconds and hitting the door with hamster to demonstate its newfound instability, "dat is how i got to be a mechanic, i am good at my job"

Ethan nodded in admiration at Nikolia, "Now we can get out. But that means they could get in, so we have to leave Now."
He looked around at the group, then inhaled deeply and walked towards the door. "Everyone ready?" he asked, then before waiting for a reply, he pushed hard, causing the door to fall outwards, clanging loudly on the floor. He looked up, meeting the gaze of three infected humans.
They growled at him and ran forward, failing in getting him because Ethan jumped backwards and they tripped on the fallen door.
"Anyone feel like helping?" he said in fear, still moving gradually backwards as the creatures tried getting to their feet.

Lilian jumped into the fray from the side, powering up her stunning rod with a whine.
She hit the first monster hard on the collarbone and was rewarded with a resounding crack, as the monsters left arm went limp. Somehow, though, he didn't call out in pain or even falter apart from the force of the blow.
She bit her lip, and he staggered forwards some more. He growled and bared his teeth and she became frightened, swinging the heavy rod around and onto the back of his neck, a definite incapacitation or knockout on a normal human. The adrenaline had increased the strength though, and there was a cracking noise with this hit as well, and the monster crumpled to the floor.
She looked over at the other two monsters, hoping everyone was dealing with them well, and having faith that Ethan could at least take out one from his performance before.

Ethan now stepped forward. With help now, he was more confident. One of the monsters tried to swipe at him, which Ethan avoided, then stepped forward and placed a foot on the thing's chest, pushing it back with all the force he could, causing it to stumble backwards ten feet or so, then fall over.
Ethan turned to the remaining one and slashed at it wildly, noticing how close it had got to biting him. the creature had an arm in the path, which got mostly severed by the wild swipe. As it didn't stop, a realisation came to him, which he called to the group while slashing the thing through the neck, severing it at least halfway. "The only place they're vulnerable is the head or neck."
The remaining infected had got to it's feet again and was starting it's stumbling rush towards them.
