It's just a Job

Posted on Thu Aug 27th, 2020 @ 7:15pm by Captain Aurther Winters

Mission: The Game is Afoot
Location: Ferengi FMS Decision
Timeline: A hour before arriving at Starbase 10

OFF: While we wait for everyone to catch up and get onboard, how about some more context?

ON: (FMS Decision - Bridge)

"It feels so weird to be this far into Federation space." The First officer Dabac stated. He continued to check over the sensor data, suspicious about the lack of any Federation interest in the two ships. "They haven't even sent out an escort, to check verify who we are, it all seems a little out of the ordinary from how these humans act." The Captain, Rhabor, also seemed a little uneasy, but knowing the true nature of the cargo, and what the instructions were it settled him a bit.

"Look, we're getting a hefty amount of gold pressed latinum for this trip, and it's so easy my mother could do it with her friends. You worry to much, if anything these humans are too trusting of us, and we should always make sure to make the most profit from the mistrust. Or do I need to remind you of the 9th rule of acquisition?"

"No, but I from what little we know, I think it would be wise to also remember the 212th rule as well."

"Bah" Rhabor waved his hands away at the notion of any sort of betrayal. "We are so deep in Federation space, if anything was to happen to this ships it would a diplomatic incident, and right now the Federation is spread so thin they wouldn't dare let anything happen to us."

"I guess, but..." Dabac trailed off, there was a lot of shouting and commotion that could be heard going on in the hallways outside the doors. He quickly saw out of the corner of his eye that the internal sensors had gone offline, a fact he relayed to Rhabor.

"It's probably just a, a glitch or something." Weapons fire could now be heard going off periodically, as the yells and screams of the Ferengi crew started to die down, one by one. "Seal off the bridge!"

"What's happening, we aren't supposed to be fighting! It's just a job right?" Dabac was able to get off before the doors to the bridge were breached. He screamed at the sight of the unknown alien to him and turned around to make a break for it out the only other door on the bridge. Rhabor beat him to it and sealed it seconds before Dabac could make it through. "Hey! What about me!"

"RULE 89!" Was yelled back through the door.

"NooooOOOooooO!" Dabac squealed off before everything went dark.
