Zelenka-Mckay

Zelenka did a double take at Mckays words
"Arnt you confusing me with you Rodney, as always?"
Rodney scowled at him
"Dont think i havent noticed how you try to take credit, especially over the wormhole drive which I actually designed" Rodney gave Zelenka a pursed lips look.
Sighing deeply Zelenka said
"So thats what the irratability was all about, if you must know, i did give you credit for it, i had to finish it, if i hadnt you would be dead"
And he stood and looked Rodney square in the face while folding his arms
"Now are we going to stop arguing and try to get ourselves out of this mess, or do you want to stand here and argue some more and get killed?"
Rodney stared at the little scientist and muttered.
"Ok, but this talk is not over , some of your calculations were wrong..."
The two of them turned to make their way down to where Cadman was, and Rodney could be heard babbling all the way down the corridor, with the occasional weary
"Yes, yes" From Zelenka
im arguing with myself, such fun, you must all try it:D

{Sergeant Joe Kazuki} NPC

Grabbing some of Doctor Keller's gear and anything else he could carry Joe nodded to the Major and then then 2IC of his team, he spoke quietly to both, fearing Genii may have scouts nearby. "Major sir, Lieutenant it's good to see you both and Doctor Keller, glad you made it back ma'am." Formalities out of they way, he led them away to the cavern entrance short distance through the forest. "Here...Laura, I mean Lieutenant Cadman and Sandra O'Rielly and I found this outlet from the underground system. It's about 5 clicks back and leads right under the Town Hall sir. Everyone is holed up there, the Lieutenant and Sergeant O'Reilly headed back...oh and sirs, we found a ring platform among other things. There's a small hospital there doctor and libraries...." he rambled on for a few minutes until everyone was inside. "We should close this door again Major, I really don't have a good feeling about the Genii around, they seem to pop up everywhere." He dropped the thing she had and remembered something other than lieutenant Benedict's words, he reached into a jacket pocket. "No sir, we were missing your ass kicking a plenty sir, I kept this for you." He handed over a shiny small medallion. "Saint Christopher has been taking care of us, so I guess he should go back to you now sir."



{Sergeant Sandra O'Reilly} NPC



<Baku>

{Major Evan Lorne}
{Lt. Lyall Benedict}

Evan raised an eyebrow as the Sergeant informed them of the underground system. With hospitals and libraries, it obviously wasn't built on a whim.
"Was it built by the villagers?" He asked pulling the door closed behind everyone "And is the ring platform operational?"
He had a feeling he knew the answer to his questions, after all what civilization hid a ring platform underground? They usually worshipped or feared them.
No, the Major had a feeling that the Ancients were, once again, involved.
Still, whether it was them or not, whoever built these tunnels were a life saver.

Lyall looked around the tunnel with a mild interest. During his years at the SGC, he'd been to and stuck in his fair share of tunnels, that he'd now come to see the tell-tale signs of one about to cave in. This one seemed, luckily, like it was quite sturdy, built to last.
He looked back to Kazuki, blinking as the man spoke to him before a grin broke out on his face "I'll admit that I kinda missed kicking ass."
Lyall's grin toned down to a smile as his team mate gave him the circular object, turning it over in his fingers a few times, feeling the familiar smooth metal "Glad to hear it Kazuki. Let's hope he keeps looking out for his some more." Patting the Sergeant on the shoulder, as a thanks for safekeeping his medallion, he stowed it away in his tac vest and turned to the Major who'd begun speaking.

"We'll head to the hospital first, drop the Doc off and her supplies then find out where we're needed." Evan kept his gaze ahead of him as they walked through the tunnel, pulling the life signs detector out of his pocket "Sergeant, no signals can be received down here at all?"
He doubted it was entirely necessary to use the device down here, but he wanted to know what they had to work with.

{Lt. Colonel John Sheppard}

He hung his arm around Teyla lightly, the torn jacket and remant blood was quite obvious, his furrows wrinkled into a frown. "You alright Teyla?" He asked then glanced at Ronon on his other side and a smirk creased his face, seeing the wound behind his big friend's ear. "At least Chewie, you got to say hello as well to our friends." John took a few tentative steps forward, he was feeling not to bad considering. he have to make sure he thanked the doctors properly when they got out of this. "A ring platform, here? Damn that is good news. We could hold out here, I agree there must be supplies, water...food. The Bakun were not stupid, they had survived the Wraith a lot longer than most and I can bet this place is Ancient, even by the look of this place it's obvious." He moved out into the main passage. "Come on, there may be more to this place we need to find....by the way, where's Mckay and Zelenka?"

"Yes, John," Teyla smiled, it was but a small smile, but there all the same. "I am good to go."

"You sure?" Ronon grunted, in that way of his.

"Yes," she repeated again (only smiling where every other person would be annoyed). Teyla demonstrated it by hopping off the bed by herself, without any support. The pain shot through her with those movements, but she winced only slightly.

Ronon still wasn't completely satisfied, so he just hung around her and John, ready to help where needed with both of them.

Teyla shook her head slightly, and focused on John's words.

"I do agree, this facility must be Ancient, from what we know so far. I do not know where Rodney and Radek are, I have not seen them in a while. Maybe they went up ahead."

The scientists' voices came up ahead then, and Ronon nodded in their general direction, sure Sheppard had heard them also. The little group was moving swiftly, even despite all the injuries involved.

"How do you think they put the ring platform there?" Ronon inquired. "Where'd they get it from? And where does it lead to, don't they need another set at the other end?" Ronon sounded genuinely confused, it was an intriguing piece of the puzzle. One he hoped either McKay or Zelenka would solve.

<Into the Maze> <Baku's secret>

{Lt Colonel John Sheppard} {Doctor Anne MacGregor} NPC for today:D

Seeing the hidden pain on Teyla's face, John said nothing, he knew he'd get a swift rebuke for his efforts so he kept it to himself. In many ways she was much like himself, stubborn and tough as life permitted them to be. He loved her like a sister, there was a time he thought itmight have been more than that. God knows, John seemed to fall for every woman he met, but Teyla, she meant more to him than that, she was his guardian angel, always looking out for him, just as a close sister would do. And Chewie, he'd become so bonded with him, to John, the both of them were family out here in Pegagsus, well anywhere they would be.

"There is only one person I know in two Galaxies who could solve this mystery guys. It's more about archeology than science and I have a feeling this place might be as old or older than Atlantis. Do you remember Doctor Jackson?"

*********
There was little else to be done for the wounded now, other than observation. Teyla and John were out of danger and on their feet which was a relief to Anne. "Carson, I think this place needs a little more research. There's a terminal over there much like the one on Atlantis, what say you and I do a little digging of our own while we are here."

<<Baku, underground maze! :eek:>>

"Yeah, sure. Why?"

"Of course I remember him. Why do you mention him?"

It was said in unison, and the two just looked at each other and smiled a little, then focused back on their friend. His theory did seem to make sense. Though, Ronon had to stop and think. Archaeology? What had happened to getting the heck out of there? He longed to see the sun, being cooped up in dark smelly places wasn't him, he'd had enough of that to last him a lifetime.

<Into the Maze> <Baku's secret>

{Lt Colonel John Sheppard}

Not often John took the serious note in life, but there were times that warranted it, like now. He walked them toward the two scientists heading their way. "I know Rodney will disagree, as he always does. But there is more than just science in discovering the legacy the Ancients left behind for us." He waved Radek and McKay over. "Rodney, move it a little will ya!" Turning back to Teyla and Ronon. "Doctor Jackson and possibly Colonel Carter between them probably know more about Ancient structures than anyone, I was just thinking how much they'd be a help right now. But since they are not here, we'll have to muddle through I suppose." Laura Cadman must be nearby, he heard voices further up and a side door about fifty metres stood open.

Lt. Laura Cadman.

Laura stoped talking as she heard voices ahead. She looked out the door and saw Colonel Sheppard, his team, and Doctor Zelenka walking towards them.
"Colonel Sheppard, Teyla, Ronon, Dr. Zelenka, Meredith." She said greating them all and putting an emphasis on Rodney's name, chuckling at his reaction. She had just found out that his real name was Merideth, which she thought, aimed in his direction, was quite hilarious. "You should all have a look inside." She turned around, and went back inside, hearing them follow.

{Sergeant Sandra O'Reilly} NPC

"Colonel Sheppard? he's ok is he Laura?" Sandra fussed with her hair and suddenly went through her pockets looking for her small compact, finding it she quickly checked her face, wiped off some dirt and ran her fingers through her short hair. "You have any lipstick handy?" Off course she knew the answer would be no. "Never mind..." She stood there waiting with anticipation, arms casually in front of her.

Zelenka Mckay

Zelenka and Mckay sped up their pace as they heard Sheppards voice, they stepped into the room to see three consoles. Mckay looked at Cadman and he heard her dig at him by using his real name, he put up his finger to say something to her, then his attention was caught fully by the consoles, so he just brushed past her and stood on the little platform that each console had.
"Oh, what have we here, lets see shall we"
Mckay had gone to the first one and Zelenka to the middle one , Mckay started to push at the pads on the consoles and it came to life at the same time as Zelenka's, Rodney moved over to the third one and did the same.
"Ummm, right, yes, yes, lets, see, what, this,..." Rodney said this to nobody in particular, then Zelenka started to speak
"I believe we have ......" Rodney cut him off rather rudely
"yes yes what we appear to have is some kind of self aware unit, recording all the knowledge from when it was installed to the present, like a giant internet,....... except more accurate, ....and....... no google, if we take a look at what has happened in the past few weeks we should solve the mystery of Baku"Rodney had that smug self satisfied look on his face, like he'd just solved the mysteries, which in some way he had.
Zelenka stepped forward
"Yes, but also like the one on Atlantis it can show this in holographic form, everything and anything we want to know from the begining of Baku is here, maybe even the plans for the tunnels too"Zelenka beamed at Sheppard and turned back to the console
"I'll begin a search for it now"
Rodney stood back on the dias and began pushing buttons
"I'll have the mystery of the Baku disappearences up in no time"Rodney seemed to see it as a challenge to beat Zelenka.

"Good idea," the Scot approved. Anne couldn't be more right. they were wounded, but walking and as good as it got for now. "Though I've no idea what ye think you'll find, love."

Following her to the terminal, he swept the dust that settled on its surface away, clearing it so he could see the interface clearly.

{Dr. Jennifer Keller}

Genuinely pleased to see the sergeant, Keller smiled at him, but couldn't help but be impatient. These greetings were nice - truly - but work had to be done. She knew in her water trouble waited in the village.

"Have you been able to get hold of Dr. McKay?" she asked, worried. If anybody knew what went on, it would be him, she reasoned.

The ring platform, Joe hadn't really thought about it. He did have a look at it, and everything looked in place. He shrugged his shoulders. "Not sure Major, from the looks of, I'd say yes." He chuckled a little. "I hope it does sir. If and when the Apollo shows up, it'll be a quick exit that's for sure sir." He guided them in deeper, at least they didn't have to contend with darkness, the lighting, so much like the lower sections of Atlantis, even the walls were so similar. "Hehe Lieutenant, be prepped for affection when those two women see you. I have a strong feeling you're gonna be hugged big time." Joe knew that both Laura and Sandra competed for the Lieutenant attention and he didn't mind. Because deep down he knew that Sandy was his anyway.

{Lt Colonel John Sheppard}

With Teyla and Ronon alongside the three of them stood in the room, it was getting crowded and mostly as far as John could see, a playroom for the geeks, though he wouldn't say it aloud. "Rodney, Radek I see you've found something interesting, let me know how it goes ok." He met Laura Cadman's eye's. "Leiutenant, I know you've just not long come off baby sitting, but you'll be ok with these two for a while won't you?"

Near the door a soft breeze blew, it was cooling and John so much wanted out of this place. "Ok we're going to check the ring platform, if there's any trouble...sort it out." He called to Laura, McKay and Zelenka.

"C'mon Teyla, Ronon, let's see what kind of fun we can have, we'll leave these to it."

Zelenka Mckay

Zelenka was looking at the console in front of him when he suddenly said.

"Ihave it" He pressed a few more buttons and turned to Mckay
"Baku has an auto detection system, that monitors anything coming near the planets orbit, it shows here, that two unknown ships entered a geosynchronous orbit and beamed the Bakuans away, the tech looked very similar to the Asgard tech, to close in fact to be anything else"He looked over at Rodney
"Well, i think i should just double check that, dont you, dont want to go chasing after the wrong bad guys now, do we" And he moved over to Zelenka's monitor
"Rodney, theres nothing to double check, its all there" Zelenka was getting exasperated with the egotistical antics of his friend and watched as he stepped on the dias and punched away at the pads.
"Well, you never know do you, cant help to check" You could tell that Mckay didnt like the fact that Zelenka had gotten to the info before him, his smug expression, in the fact that he may get more info than Zelenka had done.
Zelenka gave up and went to stand next to Cadman, he pushed his glasses up his the bridge of his nose and stood with his arms folded and a resigned look on his face.

Teyla smiled a little, watching the geeks at work was always a lot of fun, even if she had no idea what they were trying to do. It was good to see Radek take a stand though.

She and Ronon followed John, though she had some misgivings about going it alone, but still, they had radio, it should work in these tunnels, right? Only time would tell, she thought, limping along at John and Ronon's sides, in between them.

Ronon enjoyed the little breeze, though he did wonder where it came from, there must be some air vents around. There probably wasn't an exit really close that would give that much air moving, he figured, supporting Teyla as they went. He still wasn't entirely sure she was good to move, but he wouldn't argue.

A sigh of relief fluttered past Jennifer's lips, both for Rodney and herself.

Glancing over at Evan, she cocked her head to the side, and asked, "Whereabouts are they, Major?"

<Baku streets Northward>

Todd and Ted had managed to get through a partially collapsed doorway to the laneway facing North. With fortune smiling upon them, not seconds after they were through, the entire structure on that side fell, sealing the ground floor completely. Tedd looked back for a moment, the remainder of the building below seemed still intact and there was no evidence that the underground system was adversly affected. He shrugged and moved on, turning this way and that keeping low. Looking at the Wraith's face he could see both the questions and the reassurance he gave him. "Thanks, I would be grateful. Only three people of Atlantis know about my...history. Sheppard of course, Doctor Keller had to be told naturally and Colonel Davidson on the Apollo. I'd like to keep it that way." The sounds of wheeled and tracked armour drew closer, Ted wasn't conerned about the Atlantis people now, the Genii would hopefully assume they were all dead under the broken ruin of the Town Hall. The gunfire had stopped and the twin suns began their descent into twilight, the best time for a hunter. "We'll lay the claymores about here, between these two alley ways. They have motion sensors on them and will give us three minutes before they're fully active." Suiting his words, Ted showed Todd how to face the charge and set the detonator, five in all were laid about. "Now we can move Northward my big friend." he showed his teeth,a smile, maybe."I can survive most things, but if they start laying heavy shells our way, well we can say good-bye at that point."

((OOC Trill, some sneaky Genii would be handy here as we move out of the streets and ^ North)):D

<Sneaky Genii at your service sir>:P

Now that the artillery had ceased the Eastforce Genii commander sent in his forward scouts to link up with the remainder of Flyn's men. The smoke was still acrid and thick but with the aid of instruments provided to them by their "new" alien allies, they could find their way even in total darkness and find the enemy as well. Two blocks away from where the Town Hall should have been one lone trooper signaled to Commander Parren. "Sir I have two contacts just ahead of me...wait I can get a visual." He lifted his head just above some broken masonry. "What the...sir I have a Wraith and a very, very large Lantean, should I take them out sir?"

Parren climbed down from his attack/command car, talking as he did so, organising mop up teams as well. He thought for only a second or two. "No, I repeat no. Wound them if you can, I want prisoners and information. I'll send back up your way."

"Affirmative Commander." The trooper lined up the sights of his heavy assault rifle and brought the human into view in his scope. He squeezed the trigger slowly. "Bang" a single 9mm round left the muzzle and a moment later a hit could be seen on the leg of the target. But instead of going down, the man just turned and looked directly at the Genii soldier. "Wha...."

They were not that far now. In the distance of the last long tunnel Joe could make out three figures entering a side chamber, if he remembered rightly, that was the Ring room. "Major, Doctor Keller we're almost there, we should be able to use our radios now."

He nudged Lt Benedict in the side. "Reunion time eh elTee."

Laura caught Colonel Sheppard's eyes, happy that he trusted her enough to put her in charge, even though she knew that McKay and Zelenka weren't much to handle.
"Yes, I think I'll be able to manage, Sir."

She sighed as she watched McKay and Zelenka argue, glad when Zelenka had the nerve to drop it. Annoyed at the fact that McKay seemed to always be bossing Zelenka around, she said something.
"Look, McKay, maybe if you just let go of your ego for a second, you two can both figure it out."

"Yes, I think I'll be able to manage, Sir."

"If he.." John pointed at Mckay. "Gives you any trouble Cadman I'm sure there is something around here that resembles citrus."

Before they left the good doctors and Lt Cadman John equipped himself with a P90 and spare clips, the marines had stacked those weapons of their comrades who had fallen in the main hall. He grabbed another and handed it to Teyla along with clips for her as well. Chewie still had his favourite toy so they were good. Walking did in fact feel better and it wasn't long before they came to another side room where the Rin platform was located. "Well it sure looks ok, I wonder if it works? we sure as hell can't go up, maybe it's like the transporters back in Atlantis?"



<Sneaky Genii at your service sir>:P

Now that the artillery had ceased the Eastforce Genii commander sent in his forward scouts to link up with the remainder of Flyn's men.

"Wha...."




{Colonel Ted Hasluck}

Ted felt the bullet go into the thicker part of his thigh, it was something like the feeling of a small child punching him. Not even turning he spoke to Todd, his deep voice without emotion. "I think, my friend someone wishes to harm us, how do you feel about a snack?" He trained his left eye to the spot where the shot came from. Through the smoke haze the eye focused and the image in his brain was like a target ring, read out's ran down one side, giving him range, angle and type of target. Down across the bottom of the image it read 'Human~soft'. He raised his rifle with one hand and fired a single shot. The bullet taking the Genii in the shoulder, right at the colloar bone. 'Disabled' another message read.

"What do you say we go and have a little one on one with this guy, then you can do whatever it is you do." Ted then took off at a speed that only a Wraith could match.

He nudged Lt Benedict in the side. "Reunion time eh elTee."


<Baku underground>
{Major Evan Lorne}
{Lt. Lyall Benedict}


The life signs detector seemed to work fine, their signals as bright as ever on the small screen. There were no lines to show walls or paths, nor any other signs of life, but the latter was to be expected, as Kazuki had mentioned having trekked a bit to get to them.
Evan nodded in agreement, a working ring platform would be handy for sure.
"The Apollo will be on route soon, they just need to make a few repairs." He smiled reassuringly at the Sergeant. Knowing support is on it's way had always been good for morale and Evan figured those stuck here could do with some good news like that.

The Major grinned at Kazuki's words, Lyall himself just snorted, already picturing their faces as the women ambushed him.
He already had an idea of what would happen once reunited with the entire team, a few welcome back's, a bit of ribbing and, as Joe said, psychical affection. To him, it really just said how close they were, how the whole team tended to lean towards the more informal side of interaction.

"As long as they're not too affectionate with their hug. I just got out of the Infirmary, I don't want to head back with a few broken ribs." He flashed Joe a grin, rolling his eyes at the nudge "You better help me if they don't let go and I start turning blue."

"Yes, I think I'll be able to manage, Sir."

"If he.." John pointed at Mckay. "Gives you any trouble Cadman I'm sure there is something around here that resembles citrus."

Before they left the good doctors and Lt Cadman John equipped himself with a P90 and spare clips, the marines had stacked those weapons of their comrades who had fallen in the main hall. He grabbed another and handed it to Teyla along with clips for her as well. Chewie still had his favourite toy so they were good. Walking did in fact feel better and it wasn't long before they came to another side room where the Rin platform was located. "Well it sure looks ok, I wonder if it works? we sure as hell can't go up, maybe it's like the transporters back in Atlantis?"

"Don't know," Ronon replied curtly. Since he was the most able bodied of the three of them, he walked around in the small room, looking for any kind of control panel and/or other exits. Teyla took a rest by leaning against the wall, she didn't dare sit down on the platform, who knew it would take just that moment to come to life?! She wasn't sure what outcome this would give, but quite positive it might not have ended well for her. She held the P90 pointed downwards after having checked the safety was on.

"Get McKay in here maybe?" He asked, shrugging a little. "He could probably fix it up, I don't know how these work to be honest. By the way, someone's coming."

He'd heard Lorne and the others were coming, moments before their comm chirped to life.

{Colonel Ted Hasluck}

Ted felt the bullet go into the thicker part of his thigh, it was something like the feeling of a small child punching him. Not even turning he spoke to Todd, his deep voice without emotion. "I think, my friend someone wishes to harm us, how do you feel about a snack?" He trained his left eye to the spot where the shot came from. Through the smoke haze the eye focused and the image in his brain was like a target ring, read out's ran down one side, giving him range, angle and type of target. Down across the bottom of the image it read 'Human~soft'. He raised his rifle with one hand and fired a single shot. The bullet taking the Genii in the shoulder, right at the colloar bone. 'Disabled' another message read.

"What do you say we go and have a little one on one with this guy, then you can do whatever it is you do." Ted then took off at a speed that only a Wraith could match.

<Baku town>

{Todd}

Todd grunted in agreement before setting off with Hasluck towards the wounded human. Keeping his head down he was able to match the Colonel’s pace easily. Given the number of Genii in this town, it would be unusual if this one was alone which meant they would need to work quickly to get any useful intelligence.

The man was still conscious and had managed to drag himself behind a low wall when they reached his position. Despite his obvious vulnerability, his face was full of defiance. “Kill me - but you won’t get out of this alive.”

Flexing his hand in anticipation of the energy this worthless Genii would provide, Todd kept his eyes on the man’s face as he spoke to Hasluck. “It seems our friend is determined not to be helpful, would you like to try your hand at a little persuasion or shall I simply finish this now?”

Lt. Laura Cadman.
Laura caught Colonel Sheppard's eyes, happy that he trusted her enough to put her in charge, even though she knew that McKay and Zelenka weren't much to handle.
"Yes, I think I'll be able to manage, Sir."

She sighed as she watched McKay and Zelenka argue, glad when Zelenka had the nerve to drop it. Annoyed at the fact that McKay seemed to always be bossing Zelenka around, she said something.
"Look, McKay, maybe if you just let go of your ego for a second, you two can both figure it out."

{Major Evan Lorne}
{Lt. Lyall Benedict}


The life signs detector seemed to work fine, their signals as bright as ever on the small screen. There were no lines to show walls or paths, nor any other signs of life, but the latter was to be expected, as Kazuki had mentioned having trekked a bit to get to them.
Evan nodded in agreement, a working ring platform would be handy for sure.
"The Apollo will be on route soon, they just need to make a few repairs." He smiled reassuringly at the Sergeant. Knowing support is on it's way had always been good for morale and Evan figured those stuck here could do with some good news like that.

The Major grinned at Kazuki's words, Lyall himself just snorted, already picturing their faces as the women ambushed him.
He already had an idea of what would happen once reunited with the entire team, a few welcome back's, a bit of ribbing and, as Joe said, psychical affection. To him, it really just said how close they were, how the whole team tended to lean towards the more informal side of interaction.
Lyall didn't mind the way the women acted, what guy would? Plus, it also gave him more opportunities to tease the two Sergeants on the team.
"As long as they're not too affectionate with their hug. I just got out of the Infirmary, I don't want to head back with a few broken ribs." He flashed Joe a grin, rolling his eyes at the nudge "You better help me if they don't let go and I start turning blue."

{Sergeant Joe Kazuki} NPC

"Oh no eLtee, you're not dragging me into that again...sir." He should have laughed out loudly at this point. But there were really more serious matters at hand. Joe simply nudged SGA4's 2IC in the ribs. "Last time was that tavern...I'm not going there....sir." His head turned in Major Lorne's direction. He tried his own coms. Crackling static only pierced his ears. "A little further I think Major Lorne,......"

{Lt. Col. John Sheppard}


At the mention of McKay, John thought about it then shook his head. "Nah, there's not much to these things, they either work or they don't." John went and stood in the middle of the dusty circle. "See nothing, come on maybe it needs all three of us." He enticed Teyla and Ronon over.

"Colonel Shepp..., ..his is ...jor Lorne. Please resp..d, sir."

John, tapped his coms. "Lorne..is that you? There's a lot of static. How the hell do you get down here? Cadman are you getting this? It seems we're not alone anymore." John stood in the ancient circle a little longer and rubbed his thigh, well it was now or never. "Teyla, you never know what we might find, come on. Chewie?"

"Well ok Sheppard but if we end up someplace we shouldn't be I swear I'll shoot you." Ronon had a little spirit in him again and stepped over into the marked circle. "See Teyla, it probably is broken."


<Baku town>

{Todd}

Todd grunted in agreement before setting off with Hasluck towards the wounded human. Keeping his head down he was able to match the Colonel’s pace easily. Given the number of Genii in this town, it would be unusual if this one was alone which meant they would need to work quickly to get any useful intelligence.

The man was still conscious and had managed to drag himself behind a low wall when they reached his position. Despite his obvious vulnerability, his face was full of defiance. “Kill me - but you won’t get out of this alive.”

Flexing his hand in anticipation of the energy this worthless Genii would provide, Todd kept his eyes on the man’s face as he spoke to Hasluck. “It seems our friend is determined not to be helpful, would you like to try your hand at a little persuasion or shall I simply finish this now?”

{Colonel Ted Hasluck USMC}

Lifting his head only a little, Ted ingested Todd's last words. Yes, he would break this pitiful wretch but he did not want it to be a quick and simple act of interrorgation then snap the man's neck or worse. Not far off he saw more Genii closing in on the position, five of them and more in the distance with the armoured vehicles slowly rolling forward towards the town centre. With a quick motion his right left hand shot out and grabbed the man around the neck, with a motion no less than lifting a bag of peanuts, the Genii's feet were off the ground dangling, he choked as the iron grip held him.

"What....what are you???? I saw my....shot... ugh.."

"Hit me? My, my. Well maybe it did, maybe not. But tell me this Genii. Do YOU want to die?" Td teased him. Normally he wouldn't waste his time, but some information at least would be useful.

The face began to turn blue, eyes were almost popping out of his head. But this lot of Genii had been well trained by someone, he was going to find out. Ted let the man drop, in mid air before he hit the ground the enhanced powered hand was around the forearm, with a snap, Ted pulled the shoulder joint out of it's socket, a scream broke the air amidst the rumble of the oncoming Genii armour. Looking over the stone Ted saw the five pick up their pace. Taking up the rifle, his eye focusing in over the two hundred odd metres distance. "I don't need distractions." In rapid succesion, the rifle fired, five single shots, five Genii troopers dropped to the ground, dead.

Asolute fear made the other lose his bladder, his mouth frothed. "I'll tell you whate....ver you want..to.." He whimpered.

"Good." He grunted. "My friend." Ted addressed his companion Todd. "When those vehicles reach that out building over there..." There was a single home still standing amongst the rubble, some three hundred metres distant. "..let me know. That will be when our time is up and you can finish with this. I need to know a few things first."

{Major Evan Lorne}
{Lt. Lyall Benedict}

"What's this Sergeant? You're admitting to having plans of abandoning your superior officer to the enemy?" Lyall put on a look of mock shock that only lasted a few seconds before his grin returned "And I thought Marines never left a man behind."
The Lieutenant gave an involuntary shudder at the mention of the tavern "I thought we were trying to forget that mission?"

Evan frowned a little as he heard the static too, his eyebrows rising when a second later, Sheppard's voice, somewhat broken, came through the radio.
"Yes sir, it's Lorne. Came with the Jumper and a team of Marines. Figured you might need a hand." He squinted into the distance, at the room he saw people enter not too long ago "Would you like us to join you, sir? Or shall I continue on to the hospital and drop Dr. Keller off?"
Lorne had an inkling of an idea of what Sheppard would say, but he'd feel bad if he didn't at least ask if his CO needed assistance.
Then again, maybe the Colonel would surprise him and take up his offer for help.
If that was the case, he'd have to send the Marines on with Keller.

"Sir, if needed, I can head to the hospital with the others." Looking to the Lieutenant as he spoke, Evan could see the man was eager to rejoin the rest of his team, even if he had spent the past 5 minutes devising escape plans.
"We'll see what the Colonel wants, Lieutenant. But I'll keep it in mind." He gave Lyall a small nod to show his appreciation at the offer, as they carried on down the tunnel, almost reaching the room.

{Todd}

As the five Genii fell to Hasluck's well-aimed bullets, Todd felt a pang of annoyance over the waste of human resources, a couple of whom would have provided a well-earned snack. He was beginning to wonder why this human, who obviously felt he could handle things on his own, had required company on this foray but held his tongue as the Genii on the ground began to whimper with fear. It was a response he was well used to seeing from human foes unlucky enough to fall into his hands, a response that fed into his inherent sense of superiority over these beings.

Huffing thoughtfully to himself, he turned his attention to the approaching armoured vehicles. They looked formidable and he wondered how the Genii had managed to reach this dangerous level of technology with being discovered.

His ruminations came to an abrupt halt as more shots rang out, narrowly missing his head but showering him with shards of debris as the bullets smashed into the wall behind him. Three more Genii were approaching to the right of their position so he lifted his rifle, took aim and reluctantly dispatched yet more valuable resources to oblivion. "I suggest we deal with this one quickly Colonel." He glanced over at the approaching armour. "Those vehicles are not our only problem, I sense enough Genii moving forward on foot to overwhelm even our impressive capabilities if we linger here for too long."

"Come to me Lorne, we're in a room that should at your right a little further on. Send the Lieutenant with the Marines to the medical room. It's almost toward the end on your left. Oh and Cadman is with Mckay and Zelenka in another room past my position. They found an Ancient data base....this whole underground is Ancient we think. Over."

{Colonel Ted Hasluck USMC}

Ted didn't flinch as the rubble fell around him and he sensed also that Todd was feeling a little left out so far, he'd change that quickly. "You're right...this one probably knows less than we do, only their commanders would have the answers we want." He let go of the hapless soldier, but he didn't show any mercy either as he placed his boot on the mans stomche. "You didn't answer fast enough I'm afraid. Now my friend here can have his way with you." With the foot hard against the abdomen Ted inclined his head to the right. "I believe Commander this is where you top up your tank so to speak." He hoped Todd got his meaning, his mouth parted in a very wicked grin.

The Genii's face turned into a mask of utter horror, he knew what was coming. "No..no you can't...the Lantean's are not...like that..you can't....nooooooo."

Ted bent a little closer. "Who said I was one of them...hmmmm.?"

"Under the Town Hall, love, and we could do with saline as well as the usual run of supplies." He exchanged a look with Anne. "We're up to our necks."

"Not certain how soon we'll be there, but not too long, I would think. Lorne is pretty certain where he's going."

"Oh frak...excuse me Doctors," He said with some degree of embarrassment. "This is the motherload if I may say, ascension 101. It won't get you there of course, but this data tracks all their progress up to the time they actually achieved success. The IOA would pay gold for this...man phew." He rubbed his hand through his black cropped hair. "God would pay for this."

{Captain Anne MacGregor}

"Thank you ah, Simon. I think he's right Carson, look here at these glyphs. I'm a little sketchy but this is a log of their progress, from begining to the time of the war with the Wraith. They must have built this place around then as safehouse so to speak. This is amazing. Not so much for the ascension part of it, but because it also shows various medical conditions they encountered over thousands of years and how they solved a lot of problems." Anne stood back in awe.

Lt. Laura Cadman.
Laura walked over to Zelenka where she saw the blue dots, now they could finally track some people.
"Great work, Doctor Zelenka. Now we can finally get an inside view."

{Sgt Sandra O'Rielly} NPC

"Rodney or Radek, respond. We're in the Ring room, we need one of you to check it out for us, over."

The doctors were so enthralled in their findings, Colonel Sheppards call went unanswered. Sandra didn't wish to interupt so she spoke quitely to her CO. "Laura, Colonel Sheppard is calling for one of them." She pointed at Rodney's back, to indicate which one she thought should go and smiled.

"You figured right Major, it's good to hear your voice." John spoke quietly to Teyla and Ronon. "Lorne and Keller, with Marines....." He opened his radio again. "Come to me Lorne, we're in a room that should at your right a little further on. Send the Lieutenant with the Marines to the medical room. It's almost toward the end on your left. Oh and Cadman is with Mckay and Zelenka in another room past my position. They found an Ancient data base....this whole underground is Ancient we think. Over."



{Major Evan Lorne}
{Lt. Lyall Benedict}

"I'm on my way, sir." Evan clicked his radio off and looked to Lyall "Alright Lieutenant, you heard the Colonel. Take Keller to the hospital, relieve whoever is on watch there with two Marines, send the rest to where they're needed. Feel free to pick up your team."

"Yes sir. Good luck." Lyall flashed the Major a brief grin as the man took the right path, heading towards their CO, while he clicked the radio "Lieutenant Cadman, this is Benedict. I'm heading over to the hospital and have been told to rendezvous with you at some point."
He had no clue as to whether Cadman was busy, but being with the Zelenka and McKay probably meant she was on babysitting duty.
The room she was supposed to be in wasn't too far from where he stood, but Lyall wasn't sure Keller would leave him in one piece if he made a detour that would prolong their journey to the hospital.

Picking up the speed, Evan made it to Sheppard's location in minutes, giving the Satedan a nod of his head and the Athosian woman a grin "Good to see you all in one piece, sir."
Their injuries didn't go unnoticed, but he decided to say nothing. If it was serious, Beckett wouldn't have let them leave his care.
"So this is the ring platform?" He walked around it once, looking at it and the surroundings. It looked operational, yet worn and dust covered by disuse and no proper care for God knows how long.
Noticing how Sheppard and Ronon were gathered on the platform, he couldn't help but raise an eyebrow "And it works?"

Ronon watched as Lorne came in and walked around the platform, secretly glad they had an extra pair of hands now (and more, given the marines that accompanied the major) should this go awry once again. He did not doubt his own capabilities, though he had a feeling Sheppard's wouldn't last long, not with that leg that was holding them back. At least Teyla could walk, he mused.

Teyla nodded at John in thanks, then smiled at Evan in a way that told him it was good to see him.

"We are not sure." She replied to the question whether or not it worked.

"Waiting on McKay or Zelenka to tell us," Ronon added with a shrug. He was willing to take the risk without a check, even if Teyla wasn't. "Though I could go without that." What if he tried it on his own? Then it would only be one loss instead of four if it malfunctioned. The thought did send a chill through him although he attributed that to the wound on the head. It caused erratic thinking.

{Dr. Jennifer Keller} - {Dr. Carson Beckett}

Keller took off the bag hanging off her shoulder, grateful to have the thing on the floor. The weight of it caused the strap to dig into the flesh of her arm, and she rubbed at the ache, just as Rodney's dulcet tones drifted across to her. He sounded pissy, for a change, and she sighed, recognising ruffled feathers when she heard them. She looked round for Anne, and spotted her next to the console with Beckett at her side.

"Anne, it's so good to see you." Keller strode forwards, glancing about as she went, dismayed by the sight of so many wounded. "We've got our work cut out, though, eh?" Her interest piqued by the display her colleagues gazed at, she pushed in. "Is any of this workable, I wonder?" A slim finger traced the outline of a glyph. "If we can get this to Atlantis, there might be a way to reformat the retrovirus."

Carson nodded, a quick jerk of his head, and gave a breathy, "Aye, love. And then all we have to do is persuade Todd to persuade the other Wraith to take it."

Jennifer gave a small sniff. "That was always going to be an issue, and you know it." She jabbed her finger at the enticing data before them. "But if this could be applied, we would remove the carcinogenic properties, and that is a point in our favour."

{Todd}

As Todd flexed his hand, the rush of enzymes needed to begin the feeding process sent a surge of anticipation through his whole body. Moving quickly to fill the void left when Hasluck removed his foot, Todd watched the fear in the young Genii soldier’s eyes transform into terror as it became obvious there would be no escape from either of these captors. He felt no pity though, not that he really understood such an emotion. This human was of no strategic value to them and would have no qualms killing them if their positions were reversed.

The job was soon finished and Todd picked up his discarded rifle quickly in a single smooth motion as he straightened up. The Genii armoured vehicles were closing in on their position so he ducked instinctively as he turned to Hasluck. “My recuperative powers are as high as they are likely to get Colonel although I have no intention of trying my luck against those vehicles.”

But Hasluck’s attention was transfixed on the now dried husk of their former adversary. “Colonel, I realise this is the first time you have seen a wraith feed but we must leave now.” Taking another quick look at the vehicles, before scanning the surrounding buildings, Todd realised the best escape route was down a small alley between buildings where the vehicles could not pass. “Follow me.” He shouted as he took off without waiting for a response.

A familiar face always seemed to brighten a gloomy atmosphere, not that Anne felt that way. Carson was good company though she didn't know him as well as Jennifer. She touched the younger woman's arm and spoke with softness in her voice. "Yes that we do Jennifer. Most of these boys and girls are stabilised though we were very short on supplies. There wasn't a lot here when we arrived and so far other than the diagnostic equipment and this console, there isn't much else to be found. But as Carson said, this information will work for us and hopefully the Wraith and consequently the rest of the Galaxy as well." She thought about other things for a moment. "Jennifer is there any word on the Apollo, we really need to get these people back to Atlantis quickly."

What's say we...hang on there's the control panel, almost the same as the one's on the 304's." John stepped away had went to a nearby wall, covered in dust and almost unrecognisable under a layer of grey powder ecept for it's bacic outline. He blew on it and dusted it lightly with his hankerchief. The controls looked good, but they should be illuminated. "The whole place is powered up, maybe this one is isolated, have a look around for some kind of power doohickey lever." He said randomly to his comrades.

"Sorry sir, had trouble finding a decent parking spot." Evan dead panned as he followed his CO to the control panel. The floating dust made his nose tickle till he wrinkled it, waving away the rest of the dust before he actually sneezed.
"Or maybe it's busted." He offered, going in search of a 'power doohickey lever'. The Major didn't go far before he noticed an open crystal panel "Or we're missing a few of these. Think McKay has some spare ones?"


{Lt. Lyall Benedict}

Dropping Keller off with a couple of Marines, Lyall sent the rest to patrol the underground areas the others were working in, while handing out some of the extra ammunition they'd brought along and headed back through the tunnels with Kazuki.
"So how bad is it up there?" He jabbed a thumb towards the ceiling, motioning at the Genii occupied village above them. Going by what he'd seen on the flight in, he was kind of glad they'd brought along more than the standard amount of C4.

They rounded a few more corners before coming up to a room where Cadman and O'Reilly's voices were a background murmur to McKay's complaining one.
Letting a grin slide onto face, he entered the room and saluted Cadman, british style COLOR="royalblue"] "Ma'am, Leftenant Benedict reporting for duty."[/COLOR] He then winked at O'Reilly, making sure Joe could see, and gave the doctors a nod "McKay, Zelenka. Keeping us all alive down here?"

It didn't take him long to spot something that seemed receded inside the wall, the colouring was off. To anyone else it would just have been a smudge but to Ronon it was clear as day that this was what John was looking for. How it would help them figure out the crystal panel, Ronon had no idea however. He hoped McKay would show up soon or else he would just go and drag him in. The scientist had a tendency to be way too engrossed in what he was doing.

"Over here." He called roughly to Sheppard. Teyla ceased what she was doing and came over as well; wincing slightly as she walked.

"Thanks, Doc," the man said, and relaxed, visibly.

"Or maybe it's busted." He offered, going in search of a 'power doohickey lever'. The Major didn't go far before he noticed an open crystal panel "Or we're missing a few of these. Think McKay has some spare ones?"

{Lt Colonel John Sheppard}

“I think you may be right Lorne, but until he gets his but here we'll keep lookin'”


{Lt. Lyall Benedict}

Dropping Keller off with a couple of Marines, Lyall sent the rest to patrol the underground areas the others were working in, while handing out some of the extra ammunition they'd brought along and headed back through the tunnels with Kazuki.
"So how bad is it up there?" He jabbed a thumb towards the ceiling, motioning at the Genii occupied village above them. Going by what he'd seen on the flight in, he was kind of glad they'd brought along more than the standard amount of C4.

{Sergeant Joe Kazuki} NPC

“It was damned all rotten sir, they hit us from everywhere, b*stards have armour as well. APC's with what looks like 30mm canon and a couple of light tanks. We know the Bakun had them, so I guess when the Genii found the natives gone, they helped themselves.” Joe winced at the thought of seeing some other Marines get blown to pieces or cut down but the heavy fire. “We lost about seven sir and a lot of wounded. Not many got away unscathed.”


They rounded a few more corners before coming up to a room where Cadman and O'Reilly's voices were a background murmur to McKay's complaining one.
Letting a grin slide onto face, he entered the room and saluted Cadman, british style COLOR="royalblue"] "Ma'am, Leftenant Benedict reporting for duty."[/COLOR] He then winked at O'Reilly, making sure Joe could see, and gave the doctors a nod "McKay, Zelenka. Keeping us all alive down here?"

{Sergeant Sandra O'Reilly} NPC

Sandy looked around when she heard the familiar voice. Her heart sank a little. Now she had to chose between three hot looking boys...choices she hated them. “Lieutenant Sir!" She saluted with her usual casual demeanour.



Lt. Laura Cadman.

Laura's jaw droped open, she couldn't believe what she was hearing. She didn't think of McKay that way, well, she never really thought about it, truth was that she was still never over Carson....well she was, but it was still awkward seeing him. Besides, even if she did like McKay, he was with Jennifer. The thought did stick with her throughout the rest of the day though.....
"You think I....Sandra...McKay?....No...no no, no. Yes, I do, and hate to admit it, have a conection with him, but...not in that way....I mean.....where did you get an idea like that." She was positive in what she was saying, but she sounded nervous.

{Sergeant Sandra O'Rielly} NPC

All Sandy could do was grin broadly and let Laura know who had just walked in behind her. “Ah Lieutenant Cadman.....”


<<Ring Room>>

Teyla raised gracefully from the spot on the floor where she'd sat down to rest, and decided to go help John search. Ronon made as if to stop her then shrugged and joined up in the search as well. It didn't take him long to spot something that seemed receded inside the wall, the colouring was off. To anyone else it would just have been a smudge but to Ronon it was clear as day that this was what John was looking for. How it would help them figure out the crystal panel, Ronon had no idea however. He hoped McKay would show up soon or else he would just go and drag him in. The scientist had a tendency to be way too engrossed in what he was doing.

"Over here." He called roughly to Sheppard. Teyla ceased what she was doing and came over as well; wincing slightly as she walked.

"What is that?" She asked quietly.

Ronon just shrugged and waited for Shep and the others to join them.
{Lt Colonel John Sheppard}

John moved over to Teyla and Ronon's position. He looked hard at the spot, pulled out his service knife and prised open a small panel. “Well whad'ya know, Lorne I think Chewie here found the on switch.”

Mckay tapped his earpiece

"Sheppard, Mckay, whats going on there? I'm coming over to you, you can update me on the way"
Mckay looked over at Zelenka
"See if theres a quick way out of here, we dont want to be stuck here forever"
Zelenka just nodded as Mckay, with a quick backwards glance at Cadman, moved out of the room to join his team.

{Lt Colonel John Sheppard}

“McKay, we have a Ancient Ring platform here. We think we found the on switch, but Lorne is here and there is a crystal missing from one of panels”

Lyall grimaced at Joe's explanation. He'd seen the injured when dropping Keller off.
But trust the Genii to make the most out of other people's stuff. For a people claiming all their wants of stronger weapons to be for the sake of all, for the sake of taking out the Wraith, they sure as hell used it a lot on other humans.

He hadn't been part of the original expedition, but after reading the reports, the Lieutenant had always wondered how the hell Sheppard could trust them even after Cowen had passed.
People like that didn't change. Once they got one thing, they'd keep on going for more, getting too used to the power and the sudden progress they'd be making.

Evan followed Sheppard to the Satedan, sending Teyla a worried look as she winced.
"Not to be a nag sir, but is it really such a good idea to let you three use a possibly defect ring platform in your conditions?"
Of course, that would mean him being the test subject, or they'd have to get some Marines to do it. Not that he thought Sheppard would heed his words or anything.

Hearing McKay's warning over the intercom, he couldn't help but cast his CO a wry grin "It's like he thinks we're monkeys with jack saws." Which was a pretty big insult to him, as Evan was quite good with delicate jobs.

<< Ring Room -- tunnels >>

Ronon got impatient, it was taking McKay too long to get there. The scientist had probably gotten lost, he figured, although with the life signs detector... He looked over and saw it in Sheppard's pocket. Right.

"I'll get McKay." He announced roughly, and left the room quickly. He found him wandering down some tunnels, apparently quite lost.

They literally bumped into eachother after a few corners and turns.

"Come," Ronon rumbled, taking McKay by the wrist, ignoring the man's protests while he dragged him back to the others.

****

Meanwhile, Teyla nodded at Lorne's concerns. She thought they were valid, yet trusted Sheppard enough to know when to continue and when not. It was up to him to decide. She took that moment to sit down on the platform to steal a few moments of rest, careful not to touch anything that looked like it might suddenly activate.

Hearing his name, the Scot looked across at the Captain, and pursed his lips, recognising a distraction ploy when he heard one. "I'm fine, Anne, love, truly I am." But maybe she had a point. Carson sighed, and earned a worried glance from the soldier, whose dressing he'd been checking. Patting the man on the arm, he said, "You're doing fine, Gordon, just fine."

"Thanks, Doc," the man said, and relaxed, visibly.

Carson gave him a crooked smile, and began to make his way back to McGregor. "Now then, Anne, what do ye have in mind?"

((OOC - Have changed Carson's colour cos I can see it better. :o ))

{Captain Anne MacGregor}

"Being probably the most suitable here for such an expedition Carson, I think the two of can find something without having to resort to divining." Anne joked. "Besides which you could use a break, in fact I'm ordering it. You've been at it since we arrived and placed our people in an excellent position for recovery, including me. Jennifer can take over now." Anne picked up a coms unit from a work-bench, it had a little blood on it, but she ignored that as she clipped it over her ear. "Colonel Sheppard if you can hear me this is Anne MacGregor, Doctor Beckett and I are going to search for a water supply. We promise we won't get lost over." She returned her attention back to Carson and Jennifer. "Jen, we shouldn't be long take care dear. Come along Carson, you can be my escort for this dance." She smiled at him as if he had in fact asked her to dance.

Trusting in Hasluck's obvious experience with these weapons, Todd didn't need a second invitation to move out of the alleyway. As they ran between buildings, taking shelter where possible, the Claymores exploded in a series of loud explosions and not for the first time he wondered why humans needed their weapons to be so noisy. But keeping apace with his companion, he didn't waste much time on this question as he surveyed the scene ahead.

"Well, I've been ordered to rejoin my favourite sorry bunch of Marines. So, what're we doing here?" He waved an arm through the air, gesturing the room, while giving it a good look over.
All he could see was that there were the typical Ancient panels and stuff that one would find in any old ruin. Of course, Lyall was never one for the Advanced Sciences, so for all he knew, this room was where the Ancients made coffee.

Laura walked back in, a somewhat troubled expression on her face.
"You alright ma'am?" He asked, generally concerned. He wasn't sure what was wrong with her, but he was putting it down to the current situation.

He remembered the Satedan once asking him about the Boy Scouts, their famed scientist having claimed to have been a member some blue moon ago and couldn't help when the grin took over his entire face. Trust Rodney McKay to ruin the Boy Scout image.

Schooling his face back into it's usual half amused, always alert state, he glanced over McKay's shoulder at his laptop "Can't you figure it out?"
He then realized he'd just given the scientist an invitation to tirade on about how he had to do everything around here and found himself praying the man wouldn't bite.

"Oh, dont tell me, your gonna try it, that has to be the most stupidest thing on ..on.... the face of this planet, we could be ringed into just about anywhere...." He paused and clicked his fingers
"....We found a holomap, perhaps it has the destination of the rings" He clicked his comm
"Zelenka, do you read?" He awaited a reply which came shortly

She edged her way past Joe and Lyall bumping both of them purposefully with her hips and peeked over Dr Zelenka's shoulder. "Erm..excuse me Doctor, what if you tried looking up by word association and personnel?"

"Yeah Doc, like the one back home." Joe clamped his hand over his mouth. he used the word home, meaning Atlantis, already California seemed a distant memory. "You know, ask and tell. I bet someone like that Janus guy is in there."

Sandra shot a steely glance toward Joe then Laura and Lyall both. "Hey, wait a minute. Joe is right. We're not doing this right...sorry Doctor Zelenka. I mean this is the same device, we just need to find who stored their information in here."

"Well, that i can do, we can start with Janus" He pressed a sequence of buttons and then spoke
"We'd like to speak to the scientist Janus" A burst of light appeared on the pad and there stood the holographic representation of the ancient, Janus. They all stared, then Zelenka broke the silence by deciding to ask about the place and also the purpose of the rings.
"Who designed this place? Tell us about the rings?"
The holoJanus spoke
"The base was designed by myself, Moros and Ganos Lal, it consists of 18 floors, transportation between said floors are by a new form of transport we call rings" As he spoke a hologram of the rings appeared, and also a similiar map of the base that they had discovered earlier, it showed all of the levels and the ring platform locations,so, the rings acted as a sort of lift between the floors. Zelenka ummmed to himself
"Show the schematics of all eighteen levels in real time" He tapped his comm unit
"Mckay, Zelenka"
Mckay heard the little Czechs voice and irritated he responded
"What is it, were kinda busy right now?" He said as Ronon and Sheppard stepped into the ring centre.
Zelenka sighed
"I found out where the rings go, if your interested?"Mckay put up his hand to them both
"Of course im interested,now spit it out" He glanced at Sheppard
"Zelenka's found out where the rings go"
Zelenka pushed a few more buttons and spoke
"According to Janus, he, Moros and Ganus Lal built this place, it consists of 18 floors and the rings are the means of transport to each level, its their first ever transport device" Zelenka continued to click buttons, he looked up as the map blinked red on the bottom 4 sections
An irritated Rodney responded
"yes yes yes, we can do without the history lesson thankyou very much."
Zelenka's voice came thro with a slightly more urgent tone, totally ignoring Rodneys snippy attitude.
"Erm Rodney youd better be careful, the bottom four sections of the complex are flooded"

His head bobbing up and down as he sprinted across a now barren meadow, the sounds of men screaming some way behind them Ted scanned the area ahead for hot spots. Infra red stood out like a beacon to him even at a fair distance. Somewhere more north and east he could detect a faint residue of a Jumper, probably cloaked and he assumed it could only be from Atlantis. Yet another few images showed him that sooner or later someone would stumble into it. "You know I'm tired of calling you 'my friend' I've heard Sheppard refer to you as 'Todd', is that ok with you?" His feet pounded, clogs of dirt kicked up as made fast ground. "And I'm don't know how good your senses are, if they are better than mine, but we have company in the direction we're going.

"You don't say Rodney, I think we can assume they don't go up and even if they did, they'll only target another ring platform, say on a ship. At least that's the best I can figure." John glanced at Teyla, Ronon and Lorne. "Guys, look I know this probably won't be of great value to us, but you know the Ancients are good at leaving cool stuff around, what do say, we give it a shot?"

His eyebrow lifted in a very unJohnlike way when he heard Radek's coms. He nudged Mckay in the ribs a little harder than he should have. "See Rodney what did I say. Doctor Zelenka thanks for that, so we have at least thirteen floors we can have a look at. Does Janus say how we select each floor?..over"

Wearing a exceptionally wide grin, John somehow knew this Janus guy would be behind this, he was working independantly from the other Ancients and it made sense he'd have his own place, not to mention Morgan and Merlin. He wondered just how much was hidden in this place and what they might really turn up. Then the thought struck him. "Radek, where is the water coming from, an underground river system maybe?"

"Colonel, Janus says there should be a panel on the wall, practically level and to the right of the platform as you enter the room, the panel has the numbers one to eighteen on, we being level one, of course"
Zelenka continued his conversation with Janus
"We appear to have flooding on four of the bottom levels how did this occur?" The hologram paused and then spoke
"It appears that the Bakuans have built over some floodlands resulting in the water having nowhere to go, overtime it found a way into the complex, initiating the resultant flooding" Janus was quiet. Zelenka spoke thro the still open commlink
"Colonel, the water is due to the natives building over the floodlands"

"Let's just pick a random level and explore." Ronon offered, sitting around waiting for stuff was never for him.

"What about the Genii?" Teyla asked suddenly, still wary of what was happening above them even if the others seemed to have lost concern with that.

Ronon turned and looked at her. "What about them?"

"Maybe this... Janus .... knows of a better way to stop them? Maybe he even knows where all the people are..." She was still fretting over that, too.

Lyall mocked frowned as Sandra bumped into him "Sergeant, if you can´t walk in a straight line, we may have to check you for alcohol consumption."
He flashed her a smile, listening to her question with a thoughtful look.

Not being so up to date with Ancient technology himself, he trusted Sandra´s words that this device could do that and gave the Czech a nod of encouragement before looking to his right at Joe and grinning.
"Is that your way of admitting that California´s beaches are nothing compared to Atlantis`?" He whispered the question, not wanting to disrupt the others' discussion.

When the hologram came to life, he found himself stepping forward and sweeping his hand through Janus in awe. He'd never actually seen one of the holograms working, the one on Atlantis always off limits due to the power drain and techs running tests all day, so he felt he was excused from any eye rolls and remarks about his childish behaviour.

After Zelenka had passed on Janus' words to McKay, Lyall moved over to Radek, still looking at the hologram "Think he can tell us what this place was built for?"

If there was one way to get McKay to produce results, without the threat of imminent doom, then riling the man up was good.

Like the others, he listened to Zelenka relay Janus' information, wondering whether or not this particular venture with the Ancient device would end in trouble as others had tended to do so before.
"How about we go to a level just below the surface, see if we can find some secret passageway that leads into the village." If they found one, or more, it would greatly increase their chances in an all-out attack. However, the idea of accidentally pressing the wrong button and ending up in a body of water didn't sit to well with him.

Walking over to the panel with the buttons, he eyed it suspiciously "We sure this thing works the way it's supposed to? No faulty wiring or something? I mean, can we run a diagnostic programme and see?" Truthfully, he was just saying whatever came to mind. Evan had no clue as to whether they had a diagnostic programme for this type of device. Hell, he wasn't even sure he'd trust the outcome of it.
Didn't mean he wouldn't go along for the ride.
Ancient rings gave a rush of their own, a somewhat tangy, yet sharp feel instead of the Arctic rush of stepping through the 'Gate.
Demolecularization was always fun, if not a little disconcerting, but one got used to that after the first five trips.

Looking at Teyla as she spoke, Evan felt inclined to nod "Knowing where they are would make things easier. We could rescue them and we wouldn't have to worry about the Genii threatening to hurt hostages."

Zelenka

Zelenka heard Shepperds question
"Hold one moment please Colonel" He looked at the Holographic Janus and asked
"How is the ring device operated?" Janus replied and Zelenka relayed the message to shepperd
"Colonel, Janus says there should be a panel on the wall, practically level and to the right of the platform as you enter the room, the panel has the numbers one to eighteen on, we being level one, of course"
Zelenka continued his conversation with Janus
"We appear to have flooding on four of the bottom levels how did this occur?" The hologram paused and then spoke
"It appears that the Bakuans have built over some floodlands resulting in the water having nowhere to go, overtime it found a way into the complex, initiating the resultant flooding" Janus was quiet. Zelenka spoke thro the still open commlink
"Colonel, the water is due to the natives building over the floodlands"

{Lt. Colonel John Sheppard}

"Copy that Doc." John replied and looked around for the panel, he saw it nearby at about chest height on a nearby wall, covered in dust but distinguishable. "Found the panel. One last thing, ask Janus if this place has sensors and did they detect anything unusual prior to the Bakun people disappearing?"


<<Ring Room>>


Ronon listened and watched with interest, knowing they'd figure it all out before they did. It'd only been a matter of time, after all they had the smartest minds with them. He nudged Sheppard.

"Let's just pick a random level and explore." Ronon offered, sitting around waiting for stuff was never for him.

"What about the Genii?" Teyla asked suddenly, still wary of what was happening above them even if the others seemed to have lost concern with that.

Ronon turned and looked at her. "What about them?"

"Maybe this... Janus .... knows of a better way to stop them? Maybe he even knows where all the people are..." She was still fretting over that, too.

A little surprised, Ronon raised an eyebrow and turned back to Shep and McKay. "What she said."

"Whoa, guys. One problem at a time. Teyla, we are safe here for the moment and Lorne has at least brought a jumper. If the Apollo doesn't show soon, we could at the very least ferry eight at a time back to Atlantis, in fact I'm very much in favour of that option now." He scratched his head for a moment, one of these days he promised he might well get his hair cut short. "As for the Genii, we'll deal with them when we know we can secure everyone and have an advantage over them. With armour at their disposal we can't risk anything right now, so we need either the Apollo to arrive or we start with option one. Now for exploration, it's what we're all about isn't it? So as senior officer.." He grinned at them, knowing Rodney would take the bait. "..I'm gonna go with four, it's an even number."

Teyla looked at Ronon and Ronon looked back at her as Sheppard spoke.

In the end, Ronon just shrugged. "Four sounds good to me."

"To us." Teyla added, with one of her small smiles.

"Yeah. Us."

Ronon rolled his eyes and waited for the darned rings to activate already. People talked too much these days. :P

{Lieutenant Lyall Benedict}

Lyall mocked frowned as Sandra bumped into him "Sergeant, if you can´t walk in a straight line, we may have to check you for alcohol consumption."
He flashed her a smile, listening to her question with a thoughtful look.

Not being so up to date with Ancient technology himself, he trusted Sandra´s words that this device could do that and gave the Czech a nod of encouragement before looking to his right at Joe and grinning.
"Is that your way of admitting that California´s beaches are nothing compared to Atlantis`?" He whispered the question, not wanting to disrupt the others' discussion.

When the hologram came to life, he found himself stepping forward and sweeping his hand through Janus in awe. He'd never actually seen one of the holograms working, the one on Atlantis always off limits due to the power drain and techs running tests all day, so he felt he was excused from any eye rolls and remarks about his childish behaviour.

After Zelenka had passed on Janus' words to McKay, Lyall moved over to Radek, still looking at the hologram "Think he can tell us what this place was built for?"




{Sergeant Sandra O'Reilly} {Sergeant Joe Kazuki} NPC's

Sandy leaned closer to Lyall so only he would hear. In a purring voice she said. "Yes like the time on Dafur you and I got a skinful and...." She left it unsaid, suffice to say the private rooms in the Inn were superbly appointed. She listened to his questions, much the same as were wieghing on her mind. "Yes Doctor can you ask him why he built this facility and was it hidden from the rest of his people?"

Joe folded his arms, and thought pensively. "Maybe he doesn't wanna say." He was always straight to the point and sometimes he was often right. "Do you think, maybe?"

"What was this facility built for?" The hologram spoke
"The facility was built so we could carry on with our scientific advancements without being under the prying eyes of the rest of our people, they did not believe in our goals which was to help humankind and not leave them entirely to their own fate"
Zelenka smiled
"Well i guess that answers that question"

{Colonel Ted Hasluck USMC}
His head bobbing up and down as he sprinted across a now barren meadow, the sounds of men screaming some way behind them Ted scanned the area ahead for hot spots. Infra red stood out like a beacon to him even at a fair distance. Somewhere more north and east he could detect a faint residue of a Jumper, probably cloaked and he assumed it could only be from Atlantis. Yet another few images showed him that sooner or later someone would stumble into it. "You know I'm tired of calling you 'my friend' I've heard Sheppard refer to you as 'Todd', is that ok with you?" His feet pounded, clogs of dirt kicked up as made fast ground. "And I'm don't know how good your senses are, if they are better than mine, but we have company in the direction we're going. Four tango's two hundred and fifty metres northeast."

<Baku>

{Todd}

Todd grunted as he considered Hasluck’s request. He’d had very mixed feelings when he first realised that Sheppard had given him a human name. On one level it went against everything he had ever believed in to be on such familiar terms with creatures he instinctively saw as a resource to be managed and used. On the other hand, by the time he first heard the name he’d come to understand how important such customs were to human society and besides, it was only his need to use these humans that kept him engaged with their plans so he had come to accept, if not necessarily like, the name he’d been given.

But he didn’t answer immediately. Instead he took several deep breaths as he kept pace with the large human, picking up the array of scents that infiltrated the air around including the pack of Genii Hasluck had also identified. “You may indeed call me Todd and I appreciate you showing me the courtesy of asking," sensing Hasluck’s eyes on him, he turned to cast a brief but wry smile in the human’s direction, "it was not something John Sheppard considered necessary.”

A slight laugh from Hasluck confirmed he had made his point and as they reached a small wall behind which they both took cover, Todd turned his attention back to their more immediate problem. “I agree with your assessment about the ‘tangos’, as you call them, ahead. The question is should we avoid them or, as I have heard Sheppard say, ‘take them out’?”

But for now, it was good enough.
"Sir, I could get one of the Marines to ship the injured back to Atlantis. I'm sure the doctors'll appreciate the change of scenery." He was pretty sure one of the men that had accompanied him here had a pretty decent ATA gene.

Biting back the grin as his CO pulled rank, Evan gave a sharp nod "Four it is, sir. And don't worry McKay, I'm sure you guys can hold your breath long enough for me to figure out how to bring you back." Giving the scientist an innocent smile, he waited till everyone was on the platform before pressing the button indicating the fourth level.

Sure, drinking wasn't really the smartest thing to do in such a situation, but the barkeep, also moonlighting as doctor said the alcohol was mild and thus not likely to cause complications.

"Being probably the most suitable here for such an expedition Carson, I think the two of can find something without having to resort to divining." Anne joked. "Besides which you could use a break, in fact I'm ordering it. You've been at it since we arrived and placed our people in an excellent position for recovery, including me. Jennifer can take over now." Anne picked up a coms unit from a work-bench, it had a little blood on it, but she ignored that as she clipped it over her ear. "Colonel Sheppard if you can hear me this is Anne MacGregor, Doctor Beckett and I are going to search for a water supply. We promise we won't get lost over." She returned her attention back to Carson and Jennifer. "Jen, we shouldn't be long take care dear. Come along Carson, you can be my escort for this dance." She smiled at him as if he had in fact asked her to dance.

{Dr. Carson Beckett} - {Dr. Jennifer Keller}

The Scot flashed MacGregor a small appreciative grin, and ran a hand through his hair; it left it sticking up. Giving her a gentlemanly little bow, Carson proffered his arm. "Well, then, love, if ye care to take to the floor, we'll trip along just nicely, I think."

The sound of feet heading in their direction made him glance further down the tunnel, to see a bobbing light and hear the sound of a Czech accent drawing closer.

"Maybe," Beckett observed, tones mild, "we'd best take a rain-check on that plan, Anne."

Behind him, he heard someone move to come and stand at his side. A look sideways confirmed Jennifer was also interested in the proceedings.

"Looks like we're about to be rescued," she remarked, and peeled off a pair of gloves, stashing them into the voluminous plastic bag she tied to her belt. "Not before time, I might add."

{Colonel Ted Hasluck USMC}

The cover wasn't necessary in Ted's case, probably not for the Wraith as well. He looked at his watch, not that he needed to it was simply a cognetive action his 'human' side always did. Twenty three forty, with a clouded full moon. He had read something of the Wraith's abilities and knew that semi-darkness was a perfect time for them, that and their ability to 'shift'. He grunted at Todd's acceptance and spoke quietly. "On my homeworld, we have a country called Italy, they make nice booze and machinery but not much else, but they have a saying for this kind of subdued moonlight, La Luna di caccitori, the Hunters Moon." He rolled over the wall. "I think we should make sure they don't leave Todd." He made a slashing motion with his hand across his throat, knowing full well his friend would see and know the meaning.

"Wait!" John held his hand up. "Lorne wait a minute." He tapped his coms. "Doctor Beckett, Doctor MacGregor, if you're hearing this, Major Lorne is with me, he has a Marine that can fly the jumper, I suggest that you start making preparations to move your wounded to the exit North, Lieutenant Cadman and her team can show you the way.

Walking closer to the hologram, he looked up at Janus "And what kind of 'scientific advancements' were you doing here?"

The hologram looked at those in the room each in turn, whether it was intuitive or not it was unsettling, it was an unreal feeling. Joe shuddered, it was downright creepy, but at least this Janus, did not blink, did not move it's eyes. "Oookaay." He thought, Sandra and Lyall's inconvenience still in the back of his mind. "Wounded, yeah right." He muttered under his breath. Then Janus spoke again.

"I developed another modification for our shuttle craft, one that I could use to observe the progress of our 'children' over time. This was highly frowned upon and forbidden, but to me it was a must. It was a success, I was able to travel through time, until of course I was caught." The halogram seemed to have a rather smug look on his face, as if there was more to it. Everyone knew of the 'Time' Jumper, but was there more than one?

By now they were all on the platform. 'Chewie' nodded, as did Teyla.

"Yes, John." If only to stop you from acting foolish.

"Always." I got your back, too.



"Great then, as soon as we hit something cool down there, I'll be sure to spilt it evenly." John quipped light heartedly. He was feeling good and not hearing Mckay make some whiny snip bouyed his confidence. "When we get back you guys will thank me for this."

"Yep," the woman replied, already moving away to direct the more than welcome influx of able bodied. "If you could help Laura, Carson, with the less injured, Anne and I will concentrate on making certain the others are stable enough to be carried." Keller gave a thin smile. "There are drips in place we don't want ripped out, after all."

..."Doctor Beckett, Doctor MacGregor, if you're hearing this, Major Lorne is with me, he has a Marine that can fly the jumper, I suggest that you start making preparations to move your wounded to the exit North, Lieutenant Cadman and her team can show you the way. Get every able body you can to help."...

"Well, good to hear your voice, John," Carson said, relief flooding through him. There'd been a moment when this whole mission looked as if it was falling around their ears. "We'll get straight on it." He glanced at Jennifer. "Did you get that, love."

"Yep," the woman replied, already moving away to direct the more than welcome influx of able bodied. "If you could help Laura, Carson, with the less injured, Anne and I will concentrate on making certain the others are stable enough to be carried." Keller gave a thin smile. "There are drips in place we don't want ripped out, after all."

Followed by Anne, Jennifer made her way back to one of the more seriously hurt, all efficiency, her confidence in her colleagues communicated in the set of her shoulders.



"Carson, is everyone here all set to go?" She asked the doctor after she made sure that he checked most of the injured. She still felt a little awkward being around him, but she had a job to do now, and she didn't have the time to feel awkward.

"Copy that doc, it's good to hear you as well. We'll see you in a while I don't expect this will be a long search, I think whoever was here last pretty much cleaned the joint out. But if we find anything cool you'll be the first to know. Good luck Doctors." John pointed with his finger at the panel. "Okay Lorne hit it, then jump in.

Joe waited for Janus to add something more concrete but once again the hologram fell silent. Then he noticed Laura slip away and he tried to sort out the coms chatter in his head. Medical wing? That's where she went. "Ah Sandy, Leiutenant Benedict, Doctor Zelenka...I think the medics might need our help, chatter seems to think we can move some of our guys to the jumper, might be risky if there are still Genii about do you think?" He tapped his coms. "Lieutenant Cadman, respond please."

Laura heard Sergeant Joe Kazuki and responded as soon as she thought about what they should do.
"It's risky.....but I'm willing to risk it....If we can get the people who need more medical attention out of here first, that would be great....." Laura hoped she made the right decision, she was still pondering the idea.

Keller stretched out her back, and looked over at Cadman. "The patients are as stable as they ever will be, Laura, so now's as good a time as any to start moving them out."

It became a flurry of activity within the confines of the underground facility there was no immediate need to search for water now, Anne released Carson's arm and swung back into action. She surveyed the room looking for the Atlantean versions of stretchers and couldn't see anything, she heard the chatter coming from the Holo room and decided that she'd have a look around herself. If there were any such thing they would be stored here. After looking around for a while, concern showed upon her face, she went back around and then when she was about to give up, she noticed on one wall there six were distinct panels, around seven foot high and about three inches wide, she pushed on one and a the sound of air releasing.

The panel moved out from it's recess and hovered in mid air vertically for a moment, then it began to lower on it's own accord and finally it stayed level at about four feet of the ground. "Well I'll be, Jennifer, Carson I think we have patient transport." But how does one control such a thing. Anne looked further and nearby was a tall cabinet, she opened a drawer and found six small hand devices similiar to the Ancinet life signs detector, it had what appeared to be directional arrows on it and a central button. She picked it up and as soon as she brought it near the panel the central button showed green. "Well okay..ah Carson, you had best take this off me, I tend to break things gadgety."

Zelenka jumped
"Yes , yes, ummm Janus, is there anything available to use to transport the patients from the facility?"
The hologram shimmered and looked at Zelenka
"there is a medical facility on this level.." The hologram paused then continued,
"I believe some of your team have discovered the magnetic floaters" And the hologram fell silent.

{Lt Colonel John Sheppard} {Major Evan Lorne} NPC

The team stood in darkness for a brief moment, then as they experienced in Atlantis, lights turned on automatically whenever humans were at a particular place, this was no different and had the same feel, even the dampness they first encountered on the lower levels of the great city. "Whoa..that was eery." Evan was the first to speak. He cast around, yes everyone was in one piece, no one head someone else's head. "This place is similiar to Atlantis, but then I guess Janus has a lot of influence on anything Ancienty."

John conceded in his head that this was very eery, not so much the drop with the rings, he'd seen them work on the 304 cruisers, but it was this place, it was as if everything was a prelude or experiment for the Ancient Star city ships. He wondered if rather than an underground complex, if this place was the beginings of another flying city and then abonded some time in it's construction. "Ok lets spread out. Ronon, Teyla and Rodney you go that way." He pointed with the barrel of his P90 in a easterly direction. "Major you're with me, we'll take this other passage. We'll move out and at a hundred paces test the radios before we go further ok guys?" John stepped off the ring platform and turned toward the south, there were four distinct passageways, at the points of the compass. The ring room seemed to be the central hub, the lights that were on, only lit the nearest fifty metres or so in each direction.

Carson accepted the device, and turned it over in his hand a little gingerly. "Thanks love, but what makes you think I'm any good with one of these bloody things?" Seeing Anne level a 'look' at him, the Scot gave a wan smile. "Aye, well... maybe I can work it out." His ears pricked up when the words 'magnetic floaters' carried over to him, and he looked more closely at the implement. "Oh, so that's how it works."

Pleased, the Scot aimed the gadget, and watched, as the anti-grav stretchers began to loosen themselves from the surroundings. They'd soon get people away and to safety with this. Sometimes the Ancients came riding over the hill in their white hats just when you needed them - it kinda made up for the times when they tanked.

Lyall nodded, hearing Janus' words and turned to his team mates "Alright, let's go help Laura and the docs out then. Sandra, take point. Knowing me, I'd just get us lost."

Evan followed Sheppard off the platform, nodding at the others as they separated and placing a hand on his P90 for easy access, just in case.
With each step they took, lights flickered to life, casting their shadows out ahead of them.
The walls had the Atlantis feel, yet still felt strange, like something was missing. The feel of people living here, the life of a city.
Even if this was a research facility, the Ancients had a way of building places that felt like it should be lived in or revered.

Keeping pace, he cast a side glance at his CO "So, besides exploration, what exactly are we doing here?"
The Major had been tracking their distance and stopped as they'd gone far enough "If McKay hasn't slowed them down by wanting to look at the pretty lights, we should be at 100m distance. More or less." He said the last part with a small grin, flashing the light on his weapon back down the way they'd come, the lights they'd left far behind dimming to a low glow.

Joe allowed his buddy to get ahead of them as he stepped out with his XO, when she was at a suitable distance he leaned over, holding his G36 point down. "So elTee, that business about the Tavern and getting tanked with Sandy, she was only saying that to rub me up wasn't she? I mean sir, you know how I feel about her and well.." He hitched up his pack a little higher with a jerk. "..it's just that she just such a p**** teaser I never know when she's joking or not." His face dropped down two levels of glumness.

Sandra led them in a straight line to the medbay, it was all so familar to her, all these Ancient facilities were built on a pattern of squares with a central chamber and this was no different to Atlantis, the corners were sharp right angles and as she turned the last she heard Laura and the Doctors voices. "She tapped the side of her comslink. "Leiutenant Benedict, Joe straight up and right, seventy metres. Doctors Keller, Beckett and the Australian Captain are here, Leiutenant Cadman is already there." She quickened her pace and entered the room, watched Doctor Beckett have fun with a new toy for a moment then spoke. "Three more to help Doctors, anything special you need us to do." She closed the gap with Laura. "I think I really pissed Joe of Laura, but it's all in the plan. If he doesn't ask me 'that' question in the next forty eight hours I will dance naked in the Gate room when we get back."

"Yep that's about it Lorne." John stood against a wall to rest his leg. "Teyla, McKay, Ronon come in" He waited for a response and filled Evan in as he did so. "I have a hunch. Well in fact I'm sure of it. Janus was an inventor and tinkerer, he went against his bosses as we know and did it in secret. He was the main man when it came to Jumpers and we know so little about them. I'm betting we might have stumbled on his research and what more he could pack into them. I figure there might be something more here than back in Atlantis that might help us to understand how they work and if we can possibly circumvent the need for the ATA gene to fly them."

Jennifer turned her head and looked over at the Sergeant, jerking her chin towards some of the less injured. "Start helping them through to the rings, Sandy, would you? Then if one of you could assist Carson with those anti-grav stretchers, we can load them up." Tucking a stray strand of hair behind her ear, Keller bit her lip, because she hadn't meant to sound ungrateful, and added, "Just so you know, you're a sight for sore eyes."

O'Reilly gave her a perky grin, and Jennifer relaxed, as the woman made her way over to Beckett.

Carson maneuvered the stretcher clumsily, and he swore mildly under his breath. He was a bloody doctor not an engineer, and why he was always expected to use the ruddy tech when it appeared, he had no idea... His internal diatribe ceased when O'Reilly drew up alongside him. "Thank god," he said, and passed a hand device to her. "If you could drive them to where I need them, that'll be a great help, love."

This was much, much better, because now he could concentrate on making certain the injured were properly supported, and Beckett walked alongside O'Reilly as they took the stretchers to Jennifer.

"Yep that's about it Lorne." John stood against a wall to rest his leg. "Teyla, McKay, Ronon come in" He waited for a response and filled Evan in as he did so.

Ronon didn't reply immediately. What Sheppard heard back through the comms, was his friends' gunfire. McKay was cowering behind Ronon and Teyla, whimpering and shielding himself and his equipment with his arms. And he had every right to. Because on the ceiling and the walls, about a dozen spiders (http://www.gateworld.net/universe/s1/transcripts/115.shtml) scuttled, clicking and hissing menacingly. And these weren't your average house spiders. No, these were about a meter in length, and looked like they could kill you just by looking at you.
They made good target practice though, Ronon mused, as he hit his comms with his other hand.

"Little busy here, Sheppard. Get back to you."

He shot another two as he talked, their insides oozing on the floor from a lucky shot. It was disgusting, but it was the only way to make sure they were in fact, dead. Dex grinned evilly, knowing what to hit now.

The sight of their dead comrades made the spiders seem to band together and actually seem to contemplate their next action. Would they run or kill?

Ronon didn't take that chance and fired on the spidey group, in rapid succession. It made him wish for that launcher of earlier.

Beside him, Teyla was doing her best also. Between the two of them, Ronon hoped to be quick about it.

Mckay cringed as the spiders internal organs sprayed around them, he eventually regained a little composure and took out his side arm and began to fire, he hit a couple of them and they dropped with a plop to the ground, he yelled above the gunfire
"Where the hell did they come from"He shot at another, thinking how disgusting they were, he'd never liked normal Earth spiders. Between himself, Teyla, and Ronon they were making a dent in their numbers, he looked at Ronon
"Your actually enjoying this arnt you" He shouted as Ronon fired another blast from his gun.

"Yeah," Ronon grinned back at the scientist whilst hitting the killZone again. He watched in satisfaction as the spider dropped onto the floor, in the by now familiar icky fashion. He was covered by insect insides by now, too, some had even landed in the dreads.

"One more," Teyla hissed beside him. He could hear the pain in her voice, that wound of hers was still stinging he guessed. But she fought on, naturally, and finished off the last one.

Ronon looked down the corridor to check if that was indeed the last one. He carefully stepped over spider bits, grimacing as a boot managed to squish into one after all. Ugh. He loved to shoot things, but spiders weren't on his like-list at all.

"Seems to be clear." The Satedan told the others after a while of listening closely for that tell-tale *sound*.

"Let's go."

Teyla looked at Rodney, kind of proud of the way he had handled himself there and smiled a little at him; she then followed Ronon, her steps sure and careful yet pained all at the same time.

"No problem Doctors, we'll have these poor guys out safely soon. But I have to tell you it'll be the long way back to the entrance you came in and then we'll be holding position there until Colonel Hasluck gives us the all clear." She thought about him and the Wraith out there with the Genii. "Oh..I hope they're still alive. The rings according to Janus in the holoroom are only inter facility transport like the elevators we have on Atlantis. I think though if a ship with rings was in orbit above they would work. Speaking of which I wonder where the Apollo is now." She bent and inspected the stretcher, rather cool she thought. "There are six of these Doctor Beckett, each one has it's own hand device according to Janus, but they'll only work withing his base here, so I think once we get to the exit, we'll have to get the Jumper closer."

Beside him Teyla looked at her friend and then sighed, opened up her comms.

"There was a group of spiders that attacked us, about twelve of them, maybe fourteen. They were... big. Like Ronon has said, we are fine. We do not require assistance.

{Colonel Ted Hasluck USMC}

The cover wasn't necessary in Ted's case, probably not for the Wraith as well. He looked at his watch, not that he needed to it was simply a cognetive action his 'human' side always did. Twenty three forty, with a clouded full moon. He had read something of the Wraith's abilities and knew that semi-darkness was a perfect time for them, that and their ability to 'shift'. He grunted at Todd's acceptance and spoke quietly. "On my homeworld, we have a country called Italy, they make nice booze and machinery but not much else, but they have a saying for this kind of subdued moonlight, La Luna di caccitori, the Hunters Moon." He rolled over the wall. "I think we should make sure they don't leave Todd." He made a slashing motion with his hand across his throat, knowing full well his friend would see and know the meaning.

Not for the first time since he volunteered to accompany this unusual human, Todd was slightly mystified by the Colonel’s words and expressions. But he shook his head slightly and smiled. At least one word, probably the most important in this particular situation, evoked memories that he doubted Hasluck would readily understand. He had lost count of the number of humans he had hunted over the millennia but the face of his first Lantean quarry still remained imprinted on his memories. This was neither the time nor the place for reminiscing though so taking a deep breath, he pulled the rifle from his shoulder and instinctively wished it was a wraith weapon rather than this heavy piece of equipment. Still, he’d been in far worse situations and survived.

“Provided I'm not hit, I will not need to feed again here so we can finish them quickly but I believe one should to be taken alive,” he turned to Hasluck, “I will leave it to you to determine which one.”

Without waiting for a reply, he straightened up and turned his weapon towards the Genii’s position. “When you’re ready Colonel...”

{Doctor Anne MacGregor}

"Carson, because you're a man and a Scot, complex mechanisms are in your blood." Anne said with her sing song voice to his earlier remark. "Besides I can do more good at the patients side than fiddling around trying to control a runaway stretcher."

<Temporary Triage>

{Dr. Carson Beckett}

The Scot rolled his eyes at Anne's comment, and shook his head. "Would that it were true, love, but I have no finesse with machines, even if I have got the Ancient gene." A huffed sigh said it all. "To be honest, it's more of a liability than anything else."

They both moved quickly towards their charges, more intent on getting on with the job.


"Do you know Sergeant how far we have to travel to this exit of yours? Some of these need immediate evac, we've kept them here too long already." Anne knitted her brow and looked helplessly at Jennifer and Carson. "Any more than an hours traveling back to Atlantis and I'm afraid we may lose one or two."

{Dr. Jennifer Keller}

Rubbing the back of her gloved hand against her forehead, Keller looked across at MacGregor, and nodded. "Yeah, it's looking pretty bad." She stood and straightened her back, pushing her shoulders back to ease the kink that settled there. "They need proper medical treatment, but we're just going to have to do the best we can with what the ship has to offer." Locking eyes with the other two medics, she shrugged. "It's better than nothing."

{Ronon} {Teyla}

"We're good, Sheppard." Ronon replied, strolling down the tunnel confidently, and still happy about getting to shoot things. He wasn't going to say anything more, figuring his team mates would, instead.

Beside him Teyla looked at her friend and then sighed, opened up her comms.

"There was a group of spiders that attacked us, about twelve of them, maybe fourteen. They were... big. Like Ronon has said, we are fine. We do not require assistance. Though, an idea of where to go, would be most appreciated." She looked at the road ahead, the tunnel meandered and changed into two up ahead. "Seems this is still a maze, John."

{Lt. Colonel John Sheppard} {Major Evan Lorne} NPC

"Spiders? You found damned spiders down here that big?" John stopped in his tracks.

"Lorne hold up, Teyla and Chewie seems to have it under control there."

Evan pulled up agianst the nearest wall and leaned hard, he adjusted the strap on his leg holster and looked up at his CO with mild interest. "Large arachnids, makes me wonder Colonel why Janus abonded this place or did those things mutate afterwards? Oh and Mckay..?" His grin was so wide it almost split his face, there and then.

"Mckay, right." John tapped his coms again.

"Mckay..Rodney how are you holding up? Having fun down there? Well anyway guys, when you've had enough playtime with the spideys, we're looking for anything, research, even a Jumper bay that Janus might have been working on down here got that?"

At the mention of Jumpers, Lorne's interest piqued. "We certainly could use Doctor Zelenka down here Colonel, I wouldn't say this in front of Mckay, but I think Zelenka might have more knowledge on them, don't you think?"

"I do and if we find anything we'll come back with him. We can't stay here much longer, we'll give it another hour. Teyla, Ronon, Mckay another hour and we'll meet back at the ring transporter copy?"

{Colonel Ted Hasluck USMC}

Ted lifted a single finger and pointed in the darkness, the officer stood out, even though Genii uniforms didn't carry much insignia, this one had a single braid on the shoulders. He spoke in a whisper. "That one, keep him alive, the others are merely trash. Though I'd rather see your brothers food source not wasted Todd, but well...another time perhaps." He had never held any great affection for any enemy and the Genii were no different. Unremorseful, Ted would see any punishment meted out as fitting. With light feet belied by his bulk, he came up behind the first, his left hand gripped around the mouth and the right over the skull, he merely pressed his fingers until the cranium collapsed then let go. The corpse dropped with a dull thud.

<Baku Town ~ North>

{Random Genii's}

In the darkness the APC crews were blinded from the interior lighting of their vehicles and as it had gone so quiet, their commander ordered them to disembark and carry out foot patrols looking for any sign of the Lanteans. Coming up over a rise, a team of eight spread out in a rough semi-circle came across a path leading to a cave mouth, they signalled the commander and he ordered them to wait for the main forces to catch up. The commander felt in his gut, that this maybe a back door to a rumoured underground facility the previous inhabitants of Baku had hinted at from time to time.

Zelenka stood in the holoroom, he was listening to the chatter back and forth between his team mates
"Spiders"He thought. He heard Teyla ask for directions and he pulled up the map, he tapped his comm

"Teyla, i suggest you take the right hand tunnel, the other leads back around into the facility, this one leads to an exit not far from you...." He stopped in mid sentence as the map flashed red
"Urmmm we seem to have activity outside that entrance, but i cant tell if they belong to us, i suggest we have everyone check in their positions, or you may run into something nasty" He pushed his glasses along his nose and leant on the console.

"Zelenka, can you get any sort of visual on them?"

"No, sorry Rodney, i only knew of their presence because they activated the sensors"

((OOC: jumping in with a craaaaaazy idea... :P am prepared to edit/delete if need be. Just let me know! :D :P))

Intruders? Annoyed, Ronon grunted at the news (since there was nothing he could do about it right now, it was best to ignore, yet he did keep it in mind). The Satedan kept scouting ahead. Up ahead he could see a large cavern in the tunnel that led back to the facility. Something blinking in his flashlight caught his eye. Huh. He motioned to Teyla, who also cautiously followed and pointed it out to her.

They stared at the "cavern" and what it contained. It was huge, had about five floors. On each floor, thousands of bat-like creatures hung down from the ceiling and walls, whilst the same spiders as before, used what looked like puddle jumpers as their... nest?! The jumpers looked old, possibly prototypes, since Ronon couldn't identify anything he knew about jumpers. They were overgrown with debris and dirt and what looked like dead animals. Apparently the spiders were the top of the food chain down here.

Teyla hit her comm. "John? I believe you may want to take a look at this..."

"Cave full of jumpers. And...bats. And more spiders." Ronon added as his eyes scanned the cavern quickly. He didn't enter it, not wanting to alert any creatures to their presence although the flashlight would probably give that away soon.

"Looks fairly old and broken, though. Nothing seems to work down here." Maybe if McKay or most likely Sheppard headed inside, their ATA gene might activate something. Ronon doubted it though, the whole place had that distinct unused-for-centuries-look about it.

Holding against the wall for a moment John was a little confused how the hell was Zelanka's transmission coming through down here when they couldn't hear each other above for more than a hundred metres, must be Janus he thought. Maybe the guy was like Moragn Le Fey, faking it and was really here. "Lorne hold up a minute." He doubled checked his coms, working fine. "Radek I want you to do something for me. Ask Janus something, anything and watch his eyes ok?"

Now he focused on Teyla, Ronon and Mckay. They couldn't be that far away. "Guys, we're coming at you, stay where you are and Mckay, don't touch anything." He looked up at the ceiling above him, he knew intruders would not be from Atlantis. "Cadman come in, Lieutenant Cadman do you copy?"

"The intruders are not Lantian"
Zelenka stared
"And your not a hologram are you?" And he waited nervously fro a reply, not really expecting one.

{Major Karina Fothering} {Larrin} NPC

The Apollo and Larrin's ship exited hyperspace in orbit. Karina was still cursing herself slightly for having taken so long to get there, but Larrin's ship had taken a definite battering. Since they were going to be most likely going up against hostiles, they had wanted to be ready.
"Try and get a radio lock with anyone down on the planet," she ordered. "I dont' care if its Sheppard but I want to know the status of our people down there."

"Let's not forget to keep an eye out for any unwelcome guests as well." Larrin had decided to travel on-board the Apollo until they reached their destination.

"We have an idea what we're up against now," Karina replied. "They're not going to catch us by surprise twice." She turned to a com unit as a technician noddedto ehr to tell her it was activated and broadcasting. "This is Major Karina Fothering of the USS Apollo, is anyone receiving this, over?"

Taking his cue from Hasluck’s silent approach, Todd made his way behind the other two Genii who had been labelled as dispensable. The first soldier was oblivious to his approach and Todd snapped the tall man's neck before the creature even knew what had happened. He held the body as it slid noiselessly to the ground, anxious to retain the element of surprise against the second Genii, a young female who stood several feet away, her inexperience and fear palpable in the cool night air. But just as he reached her position she turned, her face immediately filling with terror that rendered her unable to scream. Although he told Hasluck he didn’t need to feed, instinctively he placed his feeding hand against her chest and silently drained her vital energy.

After throwing a cursory glance over the bodies, he moved towards Hasluck’s position. The Genii they needed to keep alive lay at the human’s feet but Todd sensed he was still breathing. “Well done Colonel but given the time constraints we are working against, surely it would have been better to keep him conscious?”

Todd stood back while Hasluck communicated with the other humans, he was not one of them so had little to contribute to the conversation. Instead he kept his eyes fixed on their new prisoner, watching with interest as the human began to regain consciousness and fully appreciate the danger of his current situation. Fear was the Genii's first emotion but it was quickly masked by a sense of bravado that Todd had sensed before in captured human warriors.

Further proof that the human was not completely broken came quickly as he pushed himself to a sitting position and spat vehmently in Todd's direction. "You won't get anything out of me Wraith."

Todd laughed. A harsh, malevolent laugh full of the hatred he felt towards this group of humans. "Very well," he bent down and flexed his feeding hand strategically, "perhaps we should avoid wasting time and finish this now then?" They both glanced over at Hasluck and Todd sensed that the Genii saw a human ally rather than another enemy. A look of mock sympathy crossed his face as he shook his head. "If you're expecting some help from him, I really wouldn't bother. You know, you Genii seem to have a special talent for gathering enemies. He hates you as much as I do."

But the opportunity for any further conversation came to an abrupt halt as Todd felt a slight brush of pressure on his arm and heard Hasluck's voice in the background. Although he missed what was said, he picked up on the Colonel's sense of urgency so roughly pulling the Genii to his feet, they both set off to the cave that was obviously Hasluck's destination.

As the air strikes echoed through the cave, Todd kept his hand firmly on the prisoner's shoulder. Like it or not he had to admit this Genii had spirit, not that it would save the man's life if he failed to provide the necessary information about who ordered this attack but it was a trait Todd found admirable. When silence finally descended he turned to Hasluck with a slight smile across his face. "Our friend seems to think we are playing some game here. I believe some additional persuasion is in order to convince him we're serious."

Janus blinked slowly and nodded an affirmative. "Yes, Colonel." He manipulated some controls and elsewhere, something happened.

<"Jumper bay">

Ronon watched, fascinated, as the spiders seemed to...dissolve? What the heck was going on?

"It's gas!" McKay exclaimed behind him. "He's gassing them!" The scientist pointed up and indeed, there were some gaps in the walls, releasing what looked like steam.

Janus' voice cut in on their comms. "You are correct Dr McKay."

"Will this gas harm us as well?" Teyla asked, concerned.

"I don't think so," McKay replied, sniffing the air. It was probably just some kind of weird alien pesticide. "If it was, we'd be dead already. And would you look at that..." He pointed up again. The roof of the cavern was quite similar to the jumper bay's roof of the city. Which meant if the jumpers were powered up, they could just fly out!
"Janus, is there any power left down here?"

"The ZPM powering this cavern has now depleted, but there may be some energy left in some of the craft." Gassing the spiders had taken whatever small level of energy had been left.

"Right..." McKay wandered over to the jumpers, but then stood rock still as explosions were heard from above. "What the....?! What's going on up there?!" He could see rubble falling down from the roof and ran back to the others for cover.

And he slipped out headed for the back door cave entrance of the underground. As he loped along he called up the Apollo once more. "Cease fire Major, cease fire."

{Lt Colonel John Sheppard}

John was headed for Teyla's position when he was almost rocked of his feet, he staggered and felt for something to grab onto. Which turned out to be Lorne. He quickly let go and steadied himself, the thunderous booming echoed throughout the tunnels and dust rained down on them. "What the hell was that?" He asked Lorne. "Teyla, McKay..Ronon are you guys alright come in."

((Dull post, because there are still some to catch up yet))

Lt. Laura Cadman.

"Yes, Sir." Laura and Joe walked a corner, where they knew they were coming up to the entrence.
"You ready?" She asked Joe, making sure he was ready for whatever would come.

{Dr. Carson Beckett} - {Dr. Jennifer Keller}

The Scot chuckled, but pricked his ears up when he heard Radek's voice. Exchanging a glance with Jennifer, he shook his head at MacGregor's question. "I wish I knew, Anne."

Jennifer stopped assisting a marine long enough to answer, flicking her pony out of the way over her shoulder. "Maybe we just got lucky, and it's the good guys?" Reaching up, she adjusted the stethoscope round her neck, and nodded to the marine who began to propel the patient on the anti-grav stretcher. "And if it isn't, which knowing our luck, it won't be, then we better get moving."

{Doctor Anne MacGregor}

"Well we can't stay here. The only way we'll find out is to go there. We'll take a stretcher each I suppose and run a shuttle until everyone is secured. Jen do you remember how far in it was in minutes to get here?" Anne was thinking of the worst and was about to make another assessment of the worst cases when the entire facility shook. Dust and debris fell around them and only by the grace of god, no one was hurt or injured. "What in heaven's name was that?" She heard the booming of what could only be something fired from space and no enemy she knew of used those kind of weapons. "Carson, Jen do you think it might be the Apollo has returned?" She stood there transfixed for a moment, a little confused perhaps. "I'll follow your lead Jennifer, I'm still the newbie with this kind of thing."

"That should do it." Ted said nonchalantly after about two minutes of bombardment. He looked back at Todd and the Genii for a moment held up his hand. "Wait here Todd, keep the b**tard warm for me." And he slipped out headed for the back door cave entrance of the underground. As he loped along he called up the Apollo once more. "Cease fire Major, cease fire."

{Todd}

As Hasluck disappeared through the cave mouth a feeling of discontent started to infiltrate Todd’s attitude. Yet another request to wait, another ‘order’ from a human, one that he barely knew, that he was obviously expected to follow without questioning the reasoning behind it.

Growling softly under his breath, he turned to the Genii knowing full well his annoyance was etched across his face. “He wants me to wait,” he moved slowly towards the human, breathing deeply to inhale the fear being generated in his direction, “but that’s not a course of action I’m inclined to follow. I don’t think I need his help. I’m sure I have all the incentives I need to persuade you to give up your secrets,” a smile touched the corners of his mouth as long green fingers reached out to brush a stray leaf off the front of the Genii’s uniform, “what do you think?”

"Acknowledged. Ceasefire," she ordered. The railguns stopped firing. "I want medical teams on stand-by and we have to be ready to beam them out as sooon as we can get a lock on them." She was anxious. Not only because of the people on the ground and how they were fairing, but she had no idea how long they had before the Asgard ships turned up again. Even with Larrin's help, she doubted they could last for too long against them.

Underground jumper bay
Mckay

The rubble crashed onto some of the jumpers knocking centuries old soil and debris away to be replaced by new.. Mckay yelled above the noise as he clicked his comm

"Shepperd, what the hell's going on? were all fine, for now, but if it doesnt stop soon whatever it is, is going to bury the jumpers, the cave cant take much more of this, and neither can we" He rocked on his feet as the ground shook and more debris hit the jumpers, Teyla and Ronon were holding their hands above their heads to stop the dust and anything else that might drop from the roof onto them. Mckay had a plan

"Look, were gonna have to make a run for one of the jumpers, i know its a long shot but if we can get one to work we can all get outta here, if we stay here we could be buried alive, a situation, i might add,that isnt on my 'to do' list, so,who's with me?" He looked at them both almost pleadingly

Major Evan Lorne

"What the hell was that?" He asked Lorne. "Teyla, McKay..Ronon are you guys alright come in."

"No idea sir, but whatever it is it can't be good! We have to move!"

[/COLOR]This whole day had turned from bad to worse, Evan recalls the chat he had with Colonel Sheppard that morning though it felt like weeks since they left in jumper four to check out Baku - though for the Colonel and those who had set out in the jumper it had been a good 15 hours. Evan remembers catching the Colonel after breakfast, telling him that they needed to talk. Sheppard's face said it all, he knew Lorne, he knew the tone of his voice and he knew something was wrong. Sheppard wasn't just his CO for Lorne he was a close friend along with Teyla and Ronon. Colonel, I'm not confident that the people you are sending on today's mission is sufficient. You have 2 scientists, 3 doctors and only a handful of soldiers and a Wraith! I requested weeks ago a change in the number in our groups. Four is not enough and we are wasting valuable lives!
[/COLOR]

Lorne knew all to well that he was right and this situation only proved as much,but he also wanted to be part of Sheppard's team and he believed that he deserved it.I don't want to say it Sir, but I told you so" Evan knew he had propably overstepped the mark but considering the situation and not knowing when the Apollo would arrive he didn't care I'm guessing the group on Level 4 don't know that the Apollo has arrived and the cause of the bombardment

Propping Sheppard up, Evan wanted to hurry back to McKay's position, he may have meant well but Mckay had his best interests at heart foremost and Evan wasn't going to let Teyla and Ronan down, plus Mckay wasn't the best at flying and by the sounds of it there were plenty of baby puddlejumpers to play with. The problem was that they covered ground slowly due to the Colonels injuries. He was just about to turn around and head to the jumper bay when he caught sight of an opening...a room perhaps?


Sheppard and Lorne reached the opening to be greeted by a small control room, one he was familiar to seeing on the outskirts of Atlantis - usually a lab of some kind but with rubble falling around him and the Colonel in pain, he wasn't confident he could figure out it's purpose in time. But he was hoping it had something to do with the jumper bay or the jumpers.

"Mckay, come in. The Colonel and myself are in a small control room South of your position, I don't think we can make it back to the jumper bay, I'm not sure what is happening but this section seems to be unstable after that last bombardment, what is your situation, I may need some help with these consoles!"

This was my first post so I apologise if you guys hated it....but I felt Lorne needed some time;) ... edited...slightly changed what has happened.

{Ronon} -- {Teyla}

Ronon growled a 'no' and grabbed McKay by the shoulders. "No! Not the jumpers. Janus said there's no power. We're going back the way we came."

"Rodney, it is not safe. Even if you can get them powered up there is no way to go." Teyla added, knowing it would take Rodney some time and time was something they did not seem to have in abundance.

Then Lorne came through and Ronon looked at McKay pointedly. "You need to help Lorne. Once the cavern stops caving in then maybe we can come back here. It's too dangerous now. Go help!" He hoped he got through but with McKay you could never be sure.

Mckay

Mckay took one last look at the jumpers and spun round he clicked his comms

"Im on my way, just dont touch anything" The cavern still rocked and parts of the roof came down behind them as they ran back along the corridor to where Lorne and Sheppard were located. Mckay took out the LSD and held it in front of him, it registered 2 life signs near the middle of the passageway, he once again clicked comm.

"We have you, we'll be there in a few minutes" Another blast hit and the whole tunnel trembled, Mckay lost his balance but was dragged up by Ronon and pulled along the tunnel.

"What the hell is going on up there, who's firing at us, i hope those ships didnt come back, we are screwed if they did."

Lorne

Evan let go of Sheppard and set about examining the consoles which sprang to life at his touch. This room reminded him of the secret lab that Dr Jackson discovered which had belonged to Janus. Small but compact, two large consoles and the usual overhead screens. But apart from turning the lights on Evan was useless at this, he was as soldier first and foremost yet he is the one that stumbles across the ancient consoles! Given more time and a different situation he may have been able to do something but with the continual booming sound from above echoing through the tunnel and causing rubble to fall all around him he couldn't concentrate. He decided it was probably best if he just took a stab at it and hopefully stumble across something useful. After all if there were jumpers down here there had to be a way out. Perhaps this station controlled the jumper bay doors - if there even was such a thing but he knew this were early versions of the jumpers and if there power was depleted then these consoles could hold the key!

Just then Mckay came on the radio "Im on my way, just dont touch anything, we have you, we'll be there in a few minutes" Why was it that Mckay always had a knack for calling you as you were doing something he didnt want you to do, he asked himself...knowing full well that Mckay would be pissed with him for activating the consoles, but what else was he meant to do!

"Roger that Mckay, but hurry up, I don't know how much longer this tunnel will last."

December 7th, 2010, 01:03 PM
Just then the pounding from above stopped ((ooc: it did a few posts back, Fothering ceased fire ^^^ so we're caught up with that now :P)) and Ronon was glad for it. The rubble and small stones kept falling down though, it seemed the tunnels had become really unstable. They'd reached a critical point. Ronon was right behind McKay, matching his pace easily. They reached the control room quickly.

"So can you work out who fired at us?" The Satedan asked by way of greeting.

Sheppard didn't look too good, the leg wound seemed to be really bothering him. Teyla went over to fuss a little over him. Of course she had nothing along to treat him with, but at the very least she could assess morale and maybe help improve it.

"John?" She daren't ask more, for some reason. Maybe this simply called for silent support.

As Hasluck disappeared through the cave mouth a feeling of discontent started to infiltrate Todd’s attitude. Yet another request to wait, another ‘order’ from a human, one that he barely knew, that he was obviously expected to follow without questioning the reasoning behind it.

Even for Ted's dispassionate attitude towards his fellow beings, the sight of the remains of the Genii turned his stomache a little, but only a little. Body parts was all that could be seen, Fothering was effeciant he gave her that. "Well done Major, well done. We should have our people coming to you soon."

When he arrived back at the small niche where Todd had waited with the prisoner, he wasn't surprised or bothered that the Wraith had his feeding hand at the ready. He smiled, even though he himself didn't have that ability, he had his won methods thanks to Doctor Lee. He ducked his head and entered fully and stood next to Todd. "Sorry to rush off like that Todd, I needed to ensure the Apollo had done it's job." He looked at the Genii officer.

"You had best follow his advise loser. Or perhaps you'd like me to egt out of you what I want?" He moved closer to the small cavern wall where a large tree root protruded through. Maybe six inches or more in diameter, he snapped it off as if it were a twig, making sure the Genii saw his actions. Ted re-joined Todd and stood over the man. "Now talk scum-bag, or the next thing I will break will be your legs first. Todd do your stuff man."

{Lt Ccolonel John Sheppard}

Shaking off Lorne's assistance John stood upright, he flet ok and the wound didn't bother him, much. He looked around at the surroundings and spoke to the Major first. "I'm ok Lorne,really I am. We came in with our teams Lorne and then another forty Marines later, you missed that part. Although we lost a few we're still ok. Now this room looks awefully like the master control room of the Jumper bay back in Atlantis. Janus would have built bay doors and we lack power, but not by much. The power cell the Bakuni put in place should have enough juice in it, we only need Mckay and Radek to re-route the circuits."

He heard McKay's whinge about the falling rubble and now that it was only dust settling John put two and four together.
"Rodney, I believe it might have been the Apollo giving our 'guests' a bit of play. We need you here copy?"
******************

John looked up at the ceiling as his team mates came in. He noticed Teyla look hard at his leg. The dried blood made it look worse and he imagined his face covered in fine grey dust didn't help his appearance any either. He walked cautiously over to her and hugged her, Rodney had that look on his face 'No hugs for me Sheppard?' Which he simply made a face. Ronon he nodded to and gave him his usual best buddy grin.

Another single lump of ceiling fell and all was quiet once more. He let Teyla go and stood rock steady. "I know you guys have had it up to here with this place, no more than me. But now that we're not in any danger I think we should take advantage of the situation. Lorne, stop panicking man, you're begining to sound like McKay." He almost laughed at the thought. "Okay, first things first. Teyla, Lorne and I will go check and see which is the best Jumper down there, and mark any others for later retrieval. Chewie you go up and drag Radek down here, by the neck if you have to and between Rodney and him, I want power to the bay roof." John was feeling better by the minute, well that was what he was showing them all. "Right guys lets do this,."

Evan moved away from the panels as Mckay entered the room, he would be in a bad enough mood without him fiddling with the controls. He had to bite his tongue as the colonel vented some of his frustration at him. Being told he was acting like Mckay almost sent him over the edge! Sheppard was right, he didn't know about the marines but it didn't change the fact that the Colonel had come unprepared originally.

Evan walked to the door and smiled as he passed Teyla - he could see this day was taking its toll on her and nodded as he saw Ronon - this guy took beating after beating and still got up, he never stopped impressing him. Evan stood at the entrance keeping watch, the thought of some big creepy crawlies sneeking up on them was not an appealing thought as he awaited Sheppard's orders.

Ronon grinned watching Sheppard hug Teyla and then make a face at McKay. His Athosian friend was surprised by the hug but took it in stride and hugged John back. She was released and seemed relieved both at the same time. To which Ronon could only silently agree.

He nodded at the orders given him. "Sure." Ronon nodded and went off, back to the Holoroom, winking back at Lorne as he passed the Major.

Teyla returned the Major's smile and awaited their own small trek back.

It didn't take Ronon long to reach the Holoroom, he found Zelenka still in conversation with Janus.

"Doc?" Ronon asked, looking to see if he didn't startle the little Czech.

"Sheppard needs you, we found a jumper bay and he wants the roof powered up."

"Well we can't stay here. The only way we'll find out is to go there. We'll take a stretcher each I suppose and run a shuttle until everyone is secured. Jen do you remember how far in it was in minutes to get here?" Anne was thinking of the worst and was about to make another assessment of the worst cases when the entire facility shook. Dust and debris fell around them and only by the grace of god, no one was hurt or injured. "What in heaven's name was that?" She heard the booming of what could only be something fired from space and no enemy she knew of used those kind of weapons. "Carson, Jen do you think it might be the Apollo has returned?" She stood there transfixed for a moment, a little confused perhaps. "I'll follow your lead Jennifer, I'm still the newbie with this kind of thing."

<Temporary Triage>

{Dr. Jennifer Keller} - {Dr. Carson Beckett}

A smallcrease formed on Jennifer's brow, and she said, "About twenty minutes, Anne. More if this bombardment doesn't stop..." As the words left her mouth, silence fell like lead, disturbed only by the occasional rattle of dislodged stones. "Thank god!" she breathed, and chewed on her lip. "I'm not one to get my hopes up too soon, but this seems like a move in the right direction."

Carson gave a faint grunt, turning his attention back to the wounded. At least with the bombardment finished they could concentrate properly on getting their patients out. "Well, love, there's only one way to find out if the Apollo is up there, and that's go find Sheppard."

"Maybe I can get hold of Rodney at last?" Jennifer wondered, and clicked her mic. "Rodney... can you hear me...? What's going on?"

Propelling one of the stretchers, Carson steered it carefully, mindful of its wounded passenger. Even if the Apollo was out there doing her bit, this was no time to be hanging around and doing nothing. With luck, McKay had got it all sorted out and they would be beamed out to the medbay.

Lt Colonel John Sheppard

Sheppard was on his toes in the cave. It was dark and quiet only the sound of dripping and squeaks of small animals. Suddenly he saw something falling from the ceiling from the cave.

Um guys I think- He began to say, never mind it's a bat

He stepped foreward a little further with his hands gripping on his P-90 since it was his only light source. He might as well explore while he was down here. Maybe he would find a secret passaway to get them out quicker. One hand released the grip on the P-90 to fumble with the radio. He might as check on everyone while he was waiting.

Cadman what's your status? He called in, and when you get a moment please contact Colonel Hasluck

He should have not attempted to do two things at once. The next thing he felt a sharp pain in his ankle. The next thing he knew he fell to the ground. Sheppard made a slight grumble.

Crap this is not not my day He thought. Bad luck seemed to attract to him like a magenet today

Lorne, He said next as he tried to get onto his foot causing him to hiss a little he sat down to the ground quickly, go ahead to the jumper bay I will follow you with my team when we figure out how to work around this...problem.

He leaned against the wall and picked up his radio and called Ronan.

Chewie come in, He called hissing in pain, did you get Zelenka yet we've got another problem and need you here immediately!

Radek turned around to say something to the Ancient scientist, but found he was not there. As he looked around, there was a flash behind them, and he heard the scientist's voice.

"Over here."

Janus walked up behind them, shockingly...non-transparent. The Ancient laughed a little and brushed some of his curly brown hair out of his eyes.

"...go ahead to the jumper bay I will follow you with my team when we figure out how to work around this...problem." Colonel Sheppard's voice came over the radio.

Janus spoke into the comm. "Unfortunately, Colonel, that is not possible. Time has taken its tole on this facility, and there is too much growth to escape in that manner with the conventional...Jumpers, as you call them.

A curse was heard over the radio before Janus responded again. "However," he continued. I was in the process of modifying one of the Gateshi - I mean Jumpers in an adjacent bay, and in consequence it has limited hyperspace capabilities."

He looked at Radek. "If you can make your way down there, Zelenka, the Satedan, and I will meet you there."

Lt Colonel John Sheppard

Sheppard was on his toes in the cave. It was dark and quiet only the sound of dripping and squeaks of small animals. Suddenly he saw something falling from the ceiling from the cave.

Um guys I think- He began to say, never mind it's a bat

He stepped foreward a little further with his hands gripping on his P-90 since it was his only light source. He might as well explore while he was down here. Maybe he would find a secret passaway to get them out quicker. One hand released the grip on the P-90 to fumble with the radio. He might as check on everyone while he was waiting.

Cadman what's your status? He called in, and when you get a moment please contact Colonel Hasluck

He should have not attempted to do two things at once. The next thing he felt a sharp pain in his ankle. The next thing he knew he fell to the ground. Sheppard made a slight grumble.

Crap this is not not my day He thought. Bad luck seemed to attract to him like a magenet today

Lorne, He said next as he tried to get onto his foot causing him to hiss a little he sat down to the ground quickly, go ahead to the jumper bay I will follow you with my team when we figure out how to work around this...problem.

He leaned against the wall and picked up his radio and called Ronan.

Chewie come in, He called hissing in pain, did you get Zelenka yet we've got another problem and need you here immediately!

{Rodney McKay} {Radek Zelenka} NPCing while Pookey is away.

"Oh Sheppard not again, Teyla and I just came all the way back here. You know it's over a kilometre back there...and uphill I might add!" As usual Rodney couldn't help but whine. He'd do it of course, but under protest. He stood there with his arms folded, feigning fatigue in only the way he knew how.


<Holoroom> {Janus}

Radek turned around to say something to the Ancient scientist, but found he was not there. As he looked around, there was a flash behind them, and he heard the scientist's voice.

"Over here."

Janus walked up behind them, shockingly...non-transparent. The Ancient laughed a little and brushed some of his curly brown hair out of his eyes. He was tired of sitting around and watching, doing nothing. It was time to do some real good for the people of this galaxy. Besides, he had descended...the Ascended couldn't force him to do anything anymore.

"Now, Doctor Zelenka...I think it is time we got your people out of here." He walked over to the console and typed a command in, activating the communications.

The little Czeck almost jumped out of his skin and muttered an expletive in his native tongue, his glasses almost falling off his face. "Ach hovno. má bůh tebe skoro kladívko mne jeden bloddy infarkt" He peered at the now solid Janus and poked him. He pushed his glasses back up and leaned closer. "You are real aren't you? I didn't hit my head...again?"

Sheppard rolled his eyes when McKay went into yet another rant. Leave it to McKay to turn a small situation into pure chaos.

And carrying you uphill would be better....Meredith Sheppard said biting his lip as he tried to give a sarcastic smirk to Mckay, and besides maybe I could get up on my feet. I have gotten out of stickier situations with injuries before.

Like when he escaped Kolya's clutches after almost having Todd suck the life out of him on the tyrant's commands, and that time that bloody wraith shot him while he tried to take back the Jumper.

Maybe if I just, Sheppard said as he slowly braced himself against the wall. That plan failed when he tried to put pressure on his ankle it hurt, damnit!

He picked up his radio and tried to contact Ronan again. He could really use his help right now.

Chewie, Sheppard said through the radio, please respond.

But a different voice responded. A voice he did not recognize....it definitely wasn't Ronan's. Apparently it wasn't possible for them to move into the jumper bays and suddenly this mysterious man wanted them meet them.

Excuse me sir, Sheppard said with a sarcastic tone, if you didn't hear me before we have a problem! I cannot move.

{Dr. Jennifer Keller} - {Dr. Carson Beckett}

A smallcrease formed on Jennifer's brow, and she said, "About twenty minutes, Anne. More if this bombardment doesn't stop..." As the words left her mouth, silence fell like lead, disturbed only by the occasional rattle of dislodged stones. "Thank god!" she breathed, and chewed on her lip. "I'm not one to get my hopes up too soon, but this seems like a move in the right direction."

Carson gave a faint grunt, turning his attention back to the wounded. At least with the bombardment finished they could concentrate properly on getting their patients out. "Well, love, there's only one way to find out if the Apollo is up there, and that's go find Sheppard."

"Maybe I can get hold of Rodney at last?" Jennifer wondered, and clicked her mic. "Rodney... can you hear me...? What's going on?"

Propelling one of the stretchers, Carson steered it carefully, mindful of its wounded passenger. Even if the Apollo was out there doing her bit, this was no time to be hanging around and doing nothing. With luck, McKay had got it all sorted out and they would be beamed out to the medbay.

{Rodney McKay} NPC {Teyla Emmagen} NPC

It was a mixture of sounds. In between John's orders and griping, something Rodney thought he had full claim on and the odd sound of 'things' the mixture of coms didn't reach him earlier. But then he realised it was Jennifer's voice coming in loud and clear. "Jennifer? We're on sub level four. Sheppard is trying to find a new toy to play with. We've been attacked by spiders, I'm hungry and oh yes, Janus has decided to appear amongst us apparently."

"Really Rodney, you should try to be a little more sympathetic towards John, how many times has he saved you from fate?" Teyla wasn't impressed at the moment. She was tired and simply wanted to go home. She had enough of this place. "Try and show a little restraint in your words." She placed her hands on her hips to show him she meant business.

"Oh very well. Jennifer we're ok. What is your sitrep?" He felt proud of himself everytime he managed to pull off using the correct military term, at the correct time. "Sheppard you want to talk to her?"

Laura heard Sheppard on the radio, but was forced to stay silent until whatever was coming, left. Suddenly, two Genii guards walked past them, into the tunnel. Once they were out of ear shot, they came out of hiding. Great She thought.
"Two Genii guards are on their way in, Sir, we'll see if we can stop them. I'll contact Colonel Hasluck as soon as I can. Over." She sighed and pressed her com twice.

Anne moved into the corridor, the sleds weren't as hard as she thought they might be, in fact she thought, it was easier than her TV remote. "Carson and Jennifer, keep trying to raise them, I will do as well." She said as her forward progress took her east.

Janus turned to Zelenka, spotting Ronon, who was glaring at him distrustingly. Janus turned away from him nervously and glanced back at Zelenka. "There are transport rings and an elevator just down this hall, I suggest we make our way to them."

The radio then cackled to life and Cadman's voice once again came on the radio. He immediately frowned. There were Genii soldiers on the prowl. It didn't make the situation any better, especially since most of his expriences with the Genii were not pleasent thanks to Commander Koyla. He sighed...he was afraid he was going to suffer again.

Alright Cadman keep yourself hidden but be careful incase they intend to attack, He then replied to Cadman,

"Are you sure your going to be able to move in your condition, we're going to have to move fast if the Genii are closing in on us, and i cant believe we're actually going to meet an ancient, can you imagine the cool stuff he can show us, especially the things he left in his lab, we havent been able to work out what half of the stuff does..."... He paused for a second

"Altho, given the right amount of time i may have been able to decipher most of it, of course, nothing is beyond the Mckay mind" He was aware Sheppard was glaring at him and he coughed and looked away

"Wonder whats taking them so long"?

{Colonel Ted Hasluck USMC}

Even for Ted's dispassionate attitude towards his fellow beings, the sight of the remains of the Genii turned his stomache a little, but only a little. Body parts was all that could be seen, Fothering was effeciant he gave her that. "Well done Major, well done. We should have our people coming to you soon."

When he arrived back at the small niche where Todd had waited with the prisoner, he wasn't surprised or bothered that the Wraith had his feeding hand at the ready. He smiled, even though he himself didn't have that ability, he had his won methods thanks to Doctor Lee. He ducked his head and entered fully and stood next to Todd. "Sorry to rush off like that Todd, I needed to ensure the Apollo had done it's job." He looked at the Genii officer.

"You had best follow his advise loser. Or perhaps you'd like me to egt out of you what I want?" He moved closer to the small cavern wall where a large tree root protruded through. Maybe six inches or more in diameter, he snapped it off as if it were a twig, making sure the Genii saw his actions. Ted re-joined Todd and stood over the man. "Now talk scum-bag, or the next thing I will break will be your legs first. Todd do your stuff man."

<Baku, Caves area North>

{Todd}

Faced with two such intimidating foes and seeing no opening for escape, the Genii’s fear filled the cave leading Todd to wonder if Hasluck’s modifications allowed him to also savour such a pervasive odour. Who knew?

Todd took a deep breath and glanced across at Hasluck’s profile wishing this was a fellow Wraith with whom he could exchange ideas through their unique telepathic network. This Genii clearly understood he was going to die and from what Todd knew of humans, some refused to divulge their secrets when trapped in such a situation. It was an attitude he understood all too well, Wraith would rather die than reveal secrets that could cause their brothers’ plans to fail. No, this interrogation called for something a little more subtle than sheer terror.

“I’m not sure this one knows anything that will be of use to us Colonel. He is a coward, afraid of his own shadow, I doubt the leadership of this band of Genii renegades would have been foolish enough to share their plans with him.” Todd completed his assessment with a mocking laugh, watching the Genii’s eyes dart between his interrogators. “But we have plenty of time now his comrades are scattered around the forest outside, I think we should extract information as slowly, as painfully as possible.”

“I only know we’ve been getting weapons from the Pasgard – Sora has been giving them intel in return for help to overthrow Ladon Radim. That’s all I know, I swear.”

Todd shook his head, disappointed that his assessment of this human had been so wrong. The Genii was more interested in trying to save his own life rather than the collective good of his race. Such an attitude offended Todd's sense of honour and he felt no need to hide his distain. “No, you know more than that.” Again he reached out to place his hand on the human’s quivering chest. “This is your last chance.”

"Oh... thank god, Rodney... "

"We've been attacked by spiders, I'm hungry and oh yes, Janus has decided to appear amongst us apparently."

The babble continued, and at the words "I'm hungry" Jennifer couldn't help but roll her eyes, and stifled a sigh. There were times... The Canadian rambled on, cutting through anything she was about to say as certainly as butter. "Rodney... slow down."

"Oh very well. Jennifer we're ok. What is your sitrep?"

"We've begun to move the wounded out on antigrav sleds, so need an estimated time you'll be ready to get them out of here." As an after thought, she added, "Can you confirm if the Apollo's arrived?"

"Sheppard you want to talk to her?"

Carson murmured, sotto voce, as he went past her with Anne, who was trying to keep a straight face, "You'll have to give me lessons, love, about how to shut him up."

Laughing at that point would serve no purpose, and probably aggravate Rodney, so Keller managed to choke the laugh down, and squeezed her eyes shut when Anne winked at her. Damn them, damn them both...

Ted crouched down beside the hapless Genii officer, he knew only too well his kind. Like the Taliban on Earth, when cornered they would eventually sell their soul to the highest bidder and between Todd and himself, they had only one thing to offer this sod. His freedom, but not in the way the man thought, to Ted, freedom meant only one thing, release from all mudane trials and tribulations, something that he yearned for, but kept eluding him. "A coward indeed Todd." He grabbed the Genii by the throat and stood, holding up, so his feet dangled, his life would ebb away slowly in this position. "Now first I'm curious, where did you hear this name, 'Pasgard'. It's certainly not a name this galaxy's newest enemy would give to themself is it?"

His face turning red, then almost blue the man could not speak. "Ple....please...you..ar"

Ted dropped him in a sodden heap, he had lost both his bladder and bowel, a pityful wretch and ready to yield in a heartbeat. Inoring the stench, Ted began again. "Now we start over. Where did you learn this name?"

The face was drawn in utter horror and fear, no normal human could inflict such misery upon another, not with that strength. The Genii, began to realise, that between the two interrorgators, he faced his worst and darkest dreams. "Sergeant Ronson, one of your own. He leaves messages for my commander, it was he who organised us to rebel against Sora and start on our own....." He started to babble. Ted drew closer.

"Ronson? Atlantis team, which one?"

"I...I don't know I swear....I only met him once."

"Anyone else involved in this crap?" His eyes grew even colder than before.

"Travellers, there is a band of rogue Travellers."

Ted stood and leaned closer to Todd, his face a mask of hatred. "I think we've learned enough, oh but one thing?" He turned back to the Genii. "We just wasted about twenty of your people, how many left in the town?"

The man looked up from his bent position, not knowing why but he gave up freely, maybe these two monsters might actually free hm, or at worst, take him prisoner. "Thirty five, with the armoured regiment. The commander is dead, only two junior officers left now...."

"Thank you." Ted reached down and took hold of the man's head in one hand, with a sickening crack and a fountain of blood, the head was freed of the shoulders in one twisting motion. He never even looked as he cast it aside. "Come on Todd, we've got work to do. I think you need to be restored to your former position and we can't do it here."

"Co Colonel Hasluck, this is Lt. Laura Cadman, do you copy?"

Leaving the small cave Ted found it was starting to get light, he had lost all track of time, even though he himself had his own built in chronographs, he rarely took notice. He held a 'pause' hand up to Todd. "I'm here Lieutenant, and I can see the entrance from here. You have two lone Genii patrolmen near your position, we'll take them out then come to you. The rest are still in the town. Stay where you are over."

McKay was right. Sheppard may have been a soldier. He may have been to hell and back. He may have been trained to go through pain and do anything. But he wasn't a superhuman. He was allowed to feel weak at some points in life.

As a rule being robbed of an opportunity to feed by another human did not sit well with Todd but on this occasion he just shrugged his shoulders and followed Hasluck out of the cave. His appetite was well satisfied and part of him found the prospect of feeding on a human as pitiful as the Genii who had just been dispatched rather distasteful.

Given the firepower that had pounded the area he was not surprise to see the mangled state of the fallen soldiers littering the ground as they made their way up the hill to the forest. "I sense you have been in contact with other Atlanteans, is there more to be done on this world or are we ready to leave?"

The Genii, began to realise, that between the two interrorgators, he faced his worst and darkest dreams. "Sergeant Ronson, one of your own. He leaves messages for my commander, it was he who organised us to rebel against Sora and start on our own....." He started to babble. Ted drew closer.

"Ronson? Atlantis team, which one?"

"I...I don't know I swear....I only met him once."

"Anyone else involved in this crap?" His eyes grew even colder than before.

"Travellers, there is a band of rogue Travellers."

Ted stood and leaned closer to Todd, his face a mask of hatred. "I think we've learned enough, oh but one thing?" He turned back to the Genii. "We just wasted about twenty of your people, how many left in the town?"

The man looked up from his bent position, not knowing why but he gave up freely, maybe these two monsters might actually free hm, or at worst, take him prisoner. "Thirty five, with the armoured regiment. The commander is dead, only two junior officers left now...."

"Thank you." Ted reached down and took hold of the man's head in one hand, with a sickening crack and a fountain of blood, the head was freed of the shoulders in one twisting motion. He never even looked as he cast it aside. "Come on Todd, we've got work to do. I think you need to be restored to your former position and we can't do it here."

***************

"Co Colonel Hasluck, this is Lt. Laura Cadman, do you copy?"

Leaving the small cave Ted found it was starting to get light, he had lost all track of time, even though he himself had his own built in chronographs, he rarely took notice. He held a 'pause' hand up to Todd. "I'm here Lieutenant, and I can see the entrance from here. You have two lone Genii patrolmen near your position, we'll take them out then come to you. The rest are still in the town. Stay where you are over."

Lt. Laura Cadman.

"Yes, Sir. Sandra, Colonel Hasluck will be here in a minute, they're gonna take care of the Genii, we have orders to stay here."

Janus walked down the darkened hallway, hearing the sound of dripping water somewhere in the distance, which was quite unsettling to him. It was too quiet, and he could feel the stares of the other two men on the back of his neck. He tried to shake it off as he walked towards the elevator.

He touched the wall near the side of the doors, revealing a panel there. Though damaged, it still worked, and he typed in his access code and turned to Ronon and Zelenka.

"This elevator will take us down to level four." He looked at Ronon, who was still glaring at him. Ignoring it, he continued, "I suggest you call your Colonel Sheppard and tell him that we are coming."

{Todd}

As a rule being robbed of an opportunity to feed by another human did not sit well with Todd but on this occasion he just shrugged his shoulders and followed Hasluck out of the cave. His appetite was well satisfied and part of him found the prospect of feeding on a human as pitiful as the Genii who had just been dispatched rather distasteful.

Given the firepower that had pounded the area he was not surprise to see the mangled state of the fallen soldiers littering the ground as they made their way up the hill to the forest. "I sense you have been in contact with other Atlanteans, is there more to be done on this world or are we ready to leave?"

http://i828.photobucket.com/albums/zz203/puddlejumperOZ/Aftermath/ColonelTedHasluckSiggy.jpg

Ted flicked a grin over to Todd, not exactly wicked but not far off either. "Yes and no Todd. You and I still have a little hunting to do if you're up for it." He grunted as he focused his eye on the two Genii Cadman's position. "Those two are headed back to their main camp, what do you think? we follow them?"


Lt. Laura Cadman.

"Yes, Sir. Sandra, Colonel Hasluck will be here in a minute, they're gonna take care of the Genii, we have orders to stay here."

He took another look over the rise, the sun was rising and taking away the gloom of darkness. "Cadman, as soon as the first casualties arrive, call up the Apollo. Any walking wounded we can send via the gate in Major Lorne's jumper..do you copy?"

Ronon was feeling a little overawed by his present company, a feeling that had kept his mouth shut until now. He simply did not know how to respond to a being thousands of years old who wasn't a Wraith. For them he had only one answer. "I know." He said simply in reply to Janus referring to the rings then he clicked his coms. "Sheppard we're coming to you, I have this Janus guy with us Zelenka is here as well, where are you at now?"

"Hang tight Sheppard we're on our way." The mysterious guy stood there waiting, so. "Two things, I don't pay attention to details, so how do we operate this thing to go down to level four? And can you fix Sheppard up, any Ancienty skills hidden up your sleeve. Doctor Zelenka you ready?"

{Dr. Jennifer Keller} - {Dr. Carson Beckett}

"Jennifer? We're on sub level four. Sheppard is trying to find a new toy to play with.

"Oh... thank god, Rodney... "

"We've been attacked by spiders, I'm hungry and oh yes, Janus has decided to appear amongst us apparently."

The babble continued, and at the words "I'm hungry" Jennifer couldn't help but roll her eyes, and stifled a sigh. There were times... The Canadian rambled on, cutting through anything she was about to say as certainly as butter. "Rodney... slow down."

"Oh very well. Jennifer we're ok. What is your sitrep?"

"We've begun to move the wounded out on antigrav sleds, so need an estimated time you'll be ready to get them out of here." As an after thought, she added, "Can you confirm if the Apollo's arrived?"

"Sheppard you want to talk to her?"

Carson murmured, sotto voce, as he went past her with Anne, who was trying to keep a straight face, "You'll have to give me lessons, love, about how to shut him up."

Laughing at that point would serve no purpose, and probably aggravate Rodney, so Keller managed to choke the laugh down, and squeezed her eyes shut when Anne winked at her. Damn them, damn them both...

{Doctor Anne MacGregor}

With a nod and a smile Anne replied simply. "He's a paranoid delusionalist, what can I say Carson.." They were making good time, in the distance they could see light beyond the dull glow of the Ancient facility lamps. "I think we're nearly there. Lieutenant Cadman should be at her post." Anne looked back at Jennifer she was doing ok in spite of things. "Lieutenant Cadman do you copy, our medical evac is heading toward you."

"And we shall Todd, I don't care if we wipe the lot of them out now, as long as we glean something of these aliens." He paused for a brief moment.

"Lieutenant Cadman, inform Sheppard that my friend Todd and I are going to secure information in the town, once the Apollo has all the wounded link up with Major Lorne and get back to Atlantis asap. Tell Colonel Sheppard if he makes it out I'll meet him back at the cave entrance over."

Picking up the pace again and heading southeasterly ted continued his conversation with Todd, keeping the two previous Genii in sight as he slowed a little. "I've been meaning to ask you, do you have any sisters Todd." A strange question, but even stranger Ted was deadly serious.

Sheppard did not know how long had passed since he got that last transmission from Ronon. But one thing was for sure, any second now this place was going to cave in. He looked over at Teyla and Rodney who were both probably anixious about what they should do in case Ronon, Zelenka and that mysterious dude named Janus didn't arrive in time.

I hope we do not have to think about it Sheppard said to his friends hissing, but if god forbid Chewie and Zelenka don't come here in time I want you to leave me. And that's an order

There were many times Sheppard thought he was going to die. But he knew if he was going to die here, in a galaxy far, far, far away from his home, it would of been either by a suicide misson, Kolya or his band of merry Genii or a Wraith, but he did not expect that he would die in a cave. Dying in a cave, what a valent death for a soldier like him. But before any fights were started Ronon appeared from the mist with Zelenka and what he assumed was Janus in tow. The moment Ronon appeared at his side asking him if he was alright he smiled.

I am just peachy Sheppard said with his familiar calm and sarcastic tone before it turned into a honest more serious one, I am just glad you are here now once again my friend I am gonna need some help.

Sheppard then turned his head to that person who was probably Janus looking at him in concern. He assumed he wanted to help him in some way with his ankle.

"Apollo, this is Captain....Doctor MacGregor, we have six ready for the ICU now do you copy over?"

She then shifted her attention to her companions. "Jen, Carson. I think the walking wounded can go directly back to Atlantis with the Jumpers, that is John and Evan can get here sooner than later, but it's your call Jennifer." She eased her own sled to the ground, knowing it's effectiveness was limited to within the boundaries of the complex. After a moment she began seeing to some of those who started to arrive, checking bandages and vitals. This was not the introduction to off-world missions she wanted, but she was satisfied they did all that was expected of them.

Folding her arms, she took a breath and huffed it out. Damn hard work for all of them, this had been. "I think I'll stay here with them, and you and Carson can take over the ICU on Apollo."

As she spoke, a com crackled to life. "Apollo here, Doc... ready when you are..."

Reaching up a hand, Jennifer flicked her own com on. "Like Dr, McGregor said, we need these straight to ICU, and now."

"Yes, ma'am... "

The beam of light from the transporter was more than a welcome relief, it looked like a miracle.

Anne watched as Carson disappeared in the Asgard beam, she had not experienced that before and frankly the thought of her atomic structure being broken down and hopefully put back together in once piece terrified her. She hesitated before acknowledging the Apollo again and taking that step. There was something bothering her. "Jen, how much do you know Colonel Hasluck? When he was in the tunnels with us earlier before he left, he had a wound to his arm, quite severe, but before I could reach him, it was gone.

Ronon didn't believe a word when Sheppard told him he was 'peachy', if it was an attempt at sarcasm it just went by him. He could see the pain in the man's eyes. Not one to discuss reasoning however, the Satedan just nodded at the request for help, and got a firm hold of Sheppard in his arms, just as McKay started to babble about how excited he was to see Janus.
Ronon rolled his eyes at the scientist but said nothing, he started to walk toward the exit, knowing they had to get out of there at some point.

Lt. Laura Cadman.

Laura knew what she had to do, as soon as she got his message, she starting planning out what she would do next.
"Yes, Sir." She switched her com to Co. Sheppard's channel.
"Co. Sheppard, this is Lt. Cadman, Colonel Hasluck has informed me to tell you that he and Todd are going to secure information in the town, He also said that he'd meet you at the cave entrance."

Mckay looked at Janus

"Your really 'the' Janus. wow this is incredible" He looked at the others

"You know what this means...a real living breathing Ancient, the stuff we could learn from him, you have any more secret labs?, i only ask because usually the ancients we meet kinda get killed by replicators, and i dont want to lose this opportunity with you, not that we had anything to do with the deaths of said ancients....well not on purpose...complete accident" Mckay was excited and babbling as usual, he looked at the faces of the others and said

"Ok, ok, i guess that could wait. lets get out of here, Janus, where to next, i hope you have a plan....of course you have a plan....dont you" And he coughed and fiddled with his computer.




((OOC: somebody will have to mention the jumpers, I think they were left forgotten?:o - Also, no idea where Lorne is at this point. Couldn't find a mention of him in the recent posts.))

{Ronon} -- {Teyla}

Ronon didn't believe a word when Sheppard told him he was 'peachy', if it was an attempt at sarcasm it just went by him. He could see the pain in the man's eyes. Not one to discuss reasoning however, the Satedan just nodded at the request for help, and got a firm hold of Sheppard in his arms, just as McKay started to babble about how excited he was to see Janus.

As Ronon went to lift him up, Sheppard went to wrap an arm around the Satedean's shoulder to brace himself. He made a deep sigh of relief. He then turned his head to McKay who started rambling on a mile a minute to Janus. Of course McKay would seize the oppertunity to speak with an ancient, no matter what the situation was.

But this was not the time, the cave was about to fall in on them.

McKay I know you are excited friend... Sheppard said trying to smile through the pain, but now is not the time to talk to him, the cave is about to fall in on us, you can talk to him when we get to the jumper now lets move out! Janus can you lead us to the jumper bay?

Usually Sheppard was leading the way. But he had to deal with for now having a free ride in Ronon's arms. His radio cackled to life again and Cadman's voice came on the line.

Cadman this is Sheppard, He said, tell Colonel Hasluck that theres a bit of we have no time to meet you at the entrance so we are going to try to take a jumper out of here.....Sheppard out!

He just prayed Janus was not sending them on some wild goose chase.

Anne watched as Carson disappeared in the Asgard beam, she had not experienced that before and frankly the thought of her atomic structure being broken down and hopefully put back together in once piece terrified her. She hesitated before acknowledging the Apollo again and taking that step. There was something bothering her. "Jen, how much do you know Colonel Hasluck? When he was in the tunnels with us earlier before he left, he had a wound to his arm, quite severe, but before I could reach him, it was gone. I saw it one moment and the next the bleeding had stopped and through the tear in his shirt I could see there was no wound?"

{Dr. Jennifer Keller}

Slanting her head in thought, Jennifer frowned, trying to place Hasluck and not really able to put a face to the name. "Can't recall ever seeing him, Anne, and I'm certain he's never accessed the infirmary on Atlantis." She met the other woman's eyes, curious. "Why, what are you thinking?"

Another of the stretcher carried patients disappeared in the light of the beam.

"He had a colourful career in the Marines up until Afganistan, then the rest was marked for 'eyes only' now why would a soldiers medical file be sealed from us?"

Ted set off at a swift pace, one that he was sure Todd could match, though few if any humans could, not unless they were 'upgraded'. Trees and branches whipped his face but he ignored it. "And we shall Todd, I don't care if we wipe the lot of them out now, as long as we glean something of these aliens." He paused for a brief moment.

"Lieutenat Cadman, inform Sheppard that my friend Todd and I are going to secure information in the town, once the Apollo has all the wounded link up with Major Lorne and get back to Atlantis asap. Tell Colonel Sheppard if he makes it out I'll meet him back at the cave entrance over."

Picking up the pace again and heading southeasterly ted continued his conversation with Todd, keeping the two previous Genii in sight as he slowed a little. "I've been meaning to ask you, do you have any sisters Todd." A strange question, but even stranger Ted was deadly serious.

<Baku> <heading back to the town>

{Todd}

As he loped easily alongside Hasluck, Todd took a few moments to consider the Colonel’s question. Sisters. A word he had heard before but not one that had a great deal of meaning. Doctor McKay had used it when they worked together on the Atlanteans’ home world to find a cure for the illness that had been inflicted on a female he had called his sister. He had displayed strong emotions, both positive and negative, when speaking of this female who Todd had sensed but not met.

He huffed quietly. Overall McKay’s feelings had been positive and even though his understanding of human feelings was limited, he knew the ones he had sensed in the human scientist were very different to the strong feelings that coursed through his whole being when faced with a female of his own race. “No Colonel, based on my limited observations, a sister is a name attached to a female who can evoke strong feelings of protection. The females of my species inspire no such response from male wraith so I think I can safely say I have no sisters.”

He stopped suddenly, slowly turning his head to better understand the potent odours being carried on the cool night air. “I believe the issue of whether or not I have a sister is irrelevant here though. There are many more Genii ahead with several vehicles and while I sense their enthusiasm for this battle is waning, they will not surrender willingly," he chuckled softly, "especially not to a wraith.”

There are many more Genii ahead with several vehicles and while I sense their enthusiasm for this battle is waning, they will not surrender willingly," he chuckled softly, "especially not to a wraith.”

All Todd might have heard was a grunt, but Ted simply needed a distraction to calm his mind. "Pity, I would like to meet one of your 'females' anyway. I understand they can be quite appealing in their own way." He came to a stop. Dust circled his feet, in a few short minutes the two of them had covered a distance most humans would take four times longer. A small rise presented a perfect cover for the two of them. Ted laid upon his stomach and focused his left eye. "Three APC's, one totalled, one moving slowly and the third..." His eye focused for distance, three hundred metres away he saw what he was looking for. At the top of the last vehicle sat a man with braided epaulettes. That was their target. "See that fat fellow there Todd." He whispered. "Atop the third APC, he's the one we want, the rest are expendable."

While Ted waited for his companion to survey the field of battle Ted listened to the voice in his head, Laura was still there, waiting. "Roger Lieutenant. Just let him know if we miss him at the rendezvous, Todd and I will gate back to Atlantis, or if Apollo is still in theatre she can pick us up, over." he would prefer not to go back at all to either, but at the moment the Apollo would be a better option. Sooner or later Ted would be a distant memory to his former fellow humans, he had other plans.

"Maybe," she said, thoughtful, and watched another of their patients disappear in the light of the beam, "we can take a look at that later, Anne?"

As Janus walked ahead of them, he wondered if they knew he could hear them. He felt a bit frustrated at their obvious distrust, but he knew it would take more than just descending to help them to gain their trust, especially with the bad experiences they had with the others of his kind.

"I assure you, I will get you out of here," he said to them without turning around. "But I do understand your unease. Come, we must hurry."

He walked briskly ahead. The Jumper bay was just a few hallways away from their current position.

Janus couldn't help but laugh at Colonel Sheppard's stubbornness. The human had spirit, something which many of his fellow Alterans had been lacking in their last days.

He could still walk fast, yet running wasn't an option. So he lagged behind a little. Any other human had long since given up, but not Ronon.

"You need to help him if you can," Teyla told Janus. "The colonel will not ask for it himself. He is too proud." Janus's laughter had not escaped her either and she frowned slightly, almost certain of the reason behind the mirth. Although she chose not to address it directly, knowing that they still needed Janus. "What do you find so funny?"

"It is your Colonel Sheppard," he explained with a laugh. "Your people have such spirit, such life." He sighed. "Regretfully, it is something my people were lacking in our later days.."

Something flashed in his eyes as he said that. Sadness, remorse, perhaps? It was only for a moment, as his friendly smile returned and he glanced back at Sheppard and Ronon.

"I would help...but I think the Colonel would refuse..."

Sheppard inwardly grumbled as Janus began mocking him. For being this ancient, he was surely immature. But then again, Sheppard's stubborness was a sign of immaturity. He had every right to be distrusting of some being he just met.

Forgive me for my distrust sir, He said qith a wry smile, but I don't easily trust people who I met five minutes ago when it comes to my health.

He smirked, hoping to ease some tension amongst the team and their new friend.

Maybe after spending some time with you, He said, you know having a few beers maybe hitting some golf balls I can trust you with my injuries...which seems to plague me often.

And with that a slight chuckle left his lips.

She turned her head back towards John as he made his jokes and gave him a soft smile as well. One that said she understood his misgivings but that he had to try and ask all the same. In the end it was up to John entirely, she could only guide him on his path.

Ronon merely grinned, the joking about helped him find new strength, there were always some reserves left. He found it easier to keep up now.

With a burst of whiteness Anne suddenly appeared on the bridge of the Apollo, she seemed bewildered at first, then steadied herself. A young woman sat at the command chair, a Major in fact. "I'm Anne MacGregor, where is the Captain?"

Karina was waiting in anticipation for the arrival and wasn't startled at all when the Captain/Doctor coalesced into view. "I'm Major Karina Fothering ma'am, XO and temporary commander. Colonel Davidson was injured during our skirmish with those aliens earlier."

"I see. Never mind I hope he'll be alright. Now Karina, do you have a secure file on Colonel Hasluck at all in your data base?"

The young woman tapped in a few commands on her console and read through personnel lists, she had access to not only those aboard Apollo, but Atlantis records as well. Finally she found it. "Captain, it has Command file only ma'am. It's secured with an encrypted password."

Anne looked over Karina's shoulder. "Well, we'll have to crack that code then won't we dear." She said with disdain.

Karina twisted her head around. "Captain, ma'am, we can't do that. We'll be court martialled."

"Let me worry about that. Give me a console and I'll begin...now."

A worried frown creased Karina's brow, she knew when a Captain and a Doctor at that gave an order in such a way, she had no choice. "Yes ma'am, use that one over there."

Anne looked at an empty technician's desk nearby and took her place. She fitted her glasses on her face and looked over the top of them. "Thank you Karina, thank you." She saw others staring at this stranger and Anne shook her head. "Don't just stare, do something all of you!" An order obyed immediately as bridge crew went back to there tasks. "Now Colonel Hasluck, what are you all about?" She said quietly to herself as she began.

Todd’s sharp eyes focused quickly on the human Hasluck was targeting and he spent a few seconds imprinting the man’s appearance on his short term memory. Turning to survey the scene that was unfolding down the slope beneath them he rather wistfully wished there were some wraith warriors under his control – a dozen or so would have done. They would have created a useful diversion as well as being an effective way to neutralise some of the Genii warriors.

“We should split up Colonel, approach through the trees on either side of the clearing. There are limits to my recuperative powers so if you’d like to create a diversion I will focus my efforts on capturing our target.”

Sensing Hasluck’s positive assessment of this plan, Todd moved off to the cover of the trees, keeping the fat Genii in his sights as the excitement of the chase heightened his senses and increased his speed.

"This will take only a moment, is everyone in?" At their nods, he typed in the command, hoping he didn't mess up. He brushed those thoughts aside; of course he wouldn't.

Entering the coordinates for the surface, he activated the hyperdrive for the micro-jump and in a flash, they were above the trees. He looked back at the new Lanteans. "Is there anywhere you want me to land?"

Ted nodded his agreement without a word and took off to the left side, the trees were less here and he would be seen shortly as he would be exiting almost on top of the remaining Genii. His legs carried him like a blur, at full tilt Ted could reach almost eighty miles and hour, only the capacity of artificial heart held him back, he planned on having that fixed somehow. He had traversed the distance swiftly, his footfalls making a rapid clumping sound as he went, at a proper point in his estimation, he dropped his pack and took out four grenades. Breaking out of the tree cover he yelled to the enemy. "Hey you, it's time to die!" He pulled the pins one after another and lobbed them at the genii, making sure his and Todd's target was clear. After the smoke and noise cleared, all that remained was the fat looking officer atop his APC, he stared in anger at Ted and raised his pistol, he did not see the danger looming behind him.

{Todd}

Energy surging through his limbs, Todd reached up from behind to curl his feeding hand around the Genii’s generous throat and effortlessly drag him down from the APC. A loud hiss signaled the sudden exit of breath from the human’s lungs as he hit the ground and his face reflected the terror of suddenly finding himself face-to-face with a wraith. Placing a large booted foot on the hand that surprisingly still held the pistol, Todd’s eyes strayed down to the heaving chest as an internal battle between the urge to feed and the need to keep this one alive briefly filled his mind.

But the sense of duty to the mission at hand triumphed and he reached down to haul the Genii to his feet. “You are lucky.” Todd hissed as he looked down into the man’s eyes. “My friend over there has decided you are worth keeping alive so I feel obliged to grant him that wish. For the moment.”

With his prize in tow, Todd walked over to meet Hasluck beside the debris of the other APC’s. “Colonel, you may want to contact the other Atlanteans and get us out of here before anymore of these creatures appear.”

"Apollo this is Atlantis, what is your sitrep, is Colonel Sheppard available?"





{Todd}

Energy surging through his limbs, Todd reached up from behind to curl his feeding hand around the Genii’s generous throat and effortlessly drag him down from the APC. A loud hiss signaled the sudden exit of breath from the human’s lungs as he hit the ground and his face reflected the terror of suddenly finding himself face-to-face with a wraith. Placing a large booted foot on the hand that surprisingly still held the pistol, Todd’s eyes strayed down to the heaving chest as an internal battle between the urge to feed and the need to keep this one alive briefly filled his mind.

But the sense of duty to the mission at hand triumphed and he reached down to haul the Genii to his feet. “You are lucky.” Todd hissed as he looked down into the man’s eyes. “My friend over there has decided you are worth keeping alive so I feel obliged to grant him that wish. For the moment.”

With his prize in tow, Todd walked over to meet Hasluck beside the debris of the other APC’s. “Colonel, you may want to contact the other Atlanteans and get us out of here before anymore of these creatures appear.”

Ted looked down at the hapless creature, he had a mind to end it's life there and then but for the moment no. He scanned the area and smiled grimly. "Well Todd I think our work is done here don't you?" He reached down with his gnarled hand an dgrabbed the Genii by the scruff of his jacket. "Up you go fatso, we're taking you someplace safe, where I'm sure they won't let me touch you....pity." he connected with his internal comslink.

"Sheppard you aloft yet, out of that stinking hole? Answer me flyboy." He demanded in no uncertain terms.

"Come on Todd, we might as well start heading back, I have no idea where that undisciplined punk is." He shoved the Genii forward, the man merely grunted and said nothing, he knew his fate was in the hands of this madman.

{Lt Colonel John Sheppard}

They didn't even have time to settle into the jumper when Janus started the hyperdrive. And like a bat outta hell it flew out of the cavern. Being a man who loved things that go over 200 MPH John Sheppard was like a kid in a candy store. And suddenly he became just as fasinated as McKay was at that very moment.

"First of all we are meeting a group at the front of the cavern," Sheppard began with wide eyes, "second of all why the hell ain't I flying this thing."

His radio soon cackled to life, it was colonel Hasluck.

"Colonel this is Sheppard," He said, "we made it out of the cavern alive in the jumper, we will meet you at the cavern entrance."

"See I told you Todd, damned punk he is." Ted said as he continued to push the heavily sweating Genii ahead of them. "Copy that Sheppard, we're two clicks south of RZ, we have a ....guest. Be prepared to get all remaining into both Jumpers any left over go can go via the Apollo. Do you have Major Lorne with you?"





((OOC RZ, rendezvous zone and someone will have to NPC Lorne for a while until Mel can find another))

"Alright Sir, as for Lorne, he is safe and here with us," Sheppard replied waving to Lorne with a grin on his face. He then raised his eyebrow when he heard the other man on the line say that he had a guest. "A guest you say I don't suppose it's one of them pesky Genii that attacked you guys just now? Well I guess we're going to have to show him our....generous hospitality."

He spoke that last sentence with venom on his tongue. He hated the Genii and the Genii for the most part hated him. Sheppard was no sadist, but after the agony and torture he went through with Acatus Kolya and his band of merry Genii, he would not blink of a Genii prisoner was roughly handled. For a moment he closed his eyes and thought about the time he was kidnapped and had Todd, starved in agony, thrown upon him to suck the life outta him. It was long ago now, but still when he thought about it.....it haunted him.

At the thought the feeding mark which was nothing more than a faint scar, slightly stung. He rested his hand over his clothed chest and closed his eyes for a moment before bringing himself back to focus.

"We met a new friend along the way too," Sheppard said quickly bringing himself back to good spirits, "a really nice guy named Janus, he helped us out of the cave, Janus would you like to say hi to Colonel Hasluck?"

{Teyla} -- {Ronon} -- {Lorne :P}

Lorne waved back at Shep with a grin, he and another marine were sat at the back, resting near the ramp. They'd been the last one in, guarding the rear as they'd had all the way up here. Lorne blinked as the jumper's hyperdrive went in effect, with a microjump they were at the surface. He'd expected Janus to cut through the roof or to open it and fly out that way but then again, it was probably all messed up down there.

Hasluck? The Apollo? Ronon perked up at that news, he was by now itching for some more action rather than just carrying off wounded. He stretched some muscles, maybe he'd get Keller to give him something for all his aches and pains everywhere (it seemed like there wasn't a part of his body without any pain), any moment spent with the pretty doc was a good one in his mind, even if she was claimed. He was definitely glad to be rid of Shep's weight, as well as for the current resting time.

Teyla smiled at John as he called Janus a 'friend', she was not sure if he meant it in a sarcastic way but from the tone of voice she suspected it was genuine. She bestowed the same smile at Janus, with an added look in her eye of, 'See! He *does* trust you!'.

((OOC LM you did well, AA, there is a cave entrance to the underground facility 5 km's due north of the town. Laura Cadman is there, I'll see if I can rouse the lass playing her)) :)

“We should split up Colonel, approach through the trees on either side of the clearing. There are limits to my recuperative powers so if you’d like to create a diversion I will focus my efforts on capturing our target.”

Ted nodded his agreement without a word and took off to the left side, the trees were less here and he would be seen shortly as he would be exiting almost on top of the remaining Genii. His legs carried him like a blur, at full tilt Ted could reach almost eighty miles and hour, only the capacity of artificial heart held him back, he planned on having that fixed somehow. He had traversed the distance swiftly, his footfalls making a rapid clumping sound as he went, at a proper point in his estimation, he dropped his pack and took out four grenades. Breaking out of the tree cover he yelled to the enemy. "Hey you, it's time to die!" He pulled the pins one after another and lobbed them at the genii, making sure his and Todd's target was clear. After the smoke and noise cleared, all that remained was the fat looking officer atop his APC, he stared in anger at Ted and raised his pistol, he did not see the danger looming behind him.


((OOC take it away Todd)) ;)

Lt. Laura Cadman.

Laura stood at the cave entrance, she had walked around, but could not find Maj. Lorne anywhere so she had come back to see if anyone would come. Worreid that she would get left behind, she radioed Colonel Sheppard.
"Colonel Sheppard, this is Lt. Cadman, can you tell me your position?"

Sheppard heard another beep on the radio.

"Hold on colonel I have someone on the other line," He quickly switched lines to hear Laura Cadman on the other end seeming a bit concerned, "Lt Cadman, this is Sheppard, we are going to meet you at the front of the cavern."

Reaching up to her own mic, Jennifer said, relieved, "John, you have no idea how good it is to hear your voice. We'll start on up to the cavern entrance, so we can get the wounded on board." As she spoke, she smiled at Cadman, and began to walk back to the small number of patients left after Anne had taken the others. "ETA?"

Again his radio clicked to life. Sheppard felt bad that he was leaving Hasluck hanging on the other line but he needed to let everyone know he was alright.

"It's nice to speak with you as well Dr. Keller," He said with a smile, "I am gonna need you to work your magic on my busted ankle as for our ETA....Janus how much longer are we from the cave entrance?"

As the sound of Colonel Sheppard's voice cut through the cool night air, Todd was quite pleased that this human in particular had made it through this messy little conflict alive. Colonel Hasluck was undoubtly a good warrior but Todd found himself missing the easy banter he shared with Sheppard.

Even though he had an idea of the location of this cavern where they would meet, he was quite happy to allow Hasluck to lead the way, satisfying himself with keeping an eye on the Genii just in case that one decided to make a break for freedom.

Janus smiled gratefully at Teyla before responding to Sheppard. "We will be there momentarily."

He was beginning to feel a bit more at ease with these New Lanteans. At least they weren't outright hostile, but he could understand their caution. He took a deep breath to calm himself and headed for what Sheppard pointed out as the cave entrance.

Slowing down, he gently settled the Jumper in the middle of a clearing that was close to the cave entrance.

<<Modified jumper, cavern entrance>>

{Teyla} {Ronon} {Lorne}

Lorne and the last marine were the first ones out the jumper when it landed. Ronon was about to follow them, but took a look at Sheppard, who was dealing with the radio calls. No way was he doing the whole carrying deal again. His muscles were still protesting as it was. "I'll get something for you." He then did follow the others outside. The clearing was safe, he knew that just by looking around, and *listening*. There was nothing hostile out there.
So he headed toward the tree line, quickly found a tree that had loose branches. His expert eye found one that could easily support Sheppard. Ronon looked for a second one, knowing that one wasn't enough. He tested the two branches found, grunted in satisfaction, and headed back inside the Jumper. "Here." Ronon gave the branches to Sheppard. "To walk."

Meanwhile Teyla focused her attention on Janus. "So what will happen now? With you, I mean?" She wasn't about to invite him back with them. That was up to Woolsey or Sheppard to decide, not her.

Janus tapped on the Jumper's console absentmindedly as he turned to look at Teyla, blinking. He didn't know if they would welcome him...but it was worth a try. They didn't trust him, but at least they didn't mistrust him.

"Well," he began after a moment. "I was hoping I could return to Atlantis with you...aide you as much as I can."

Sheppard gave a grateful smile when Ronon gave him a pair of makeshift crutches. He hobbled around for a moment so he could get used to his footing before following the rest of the group to the rounde-vouis (OOC: I can't spell) point. As they walked further Janus asked if he could stay on Atlantis.

"We will have to ask Woolsey because in the end it's his call," He said with a grin, "I don't see why not, it will save McKay the trouble of kidnapping you so he could peak his curiousity."

Janus smiled gratefully at the Colonel's response. He had no idea who this "Woolsey" was, but he must be someone in charge. He frowned. Wasn't Elizabeth supposed to be in charge? Well, that was a question for when they where out of here.

"Thank you, Colonel." It made him feel a bit better to see that the Colonel was willing to accept him into the expedition at least.

He watched the others file into the Jumper. "Is everyone ready?"

Ted pushed the genii hard up hill and through the thicket, the man was sweating profusely. Looking back and Todd, his face a steely mask, Ted nodded briefly but said nothing until at last they made the clearing near the cave. Lieutenant Cadman was most likely inside seeing to the evacuation and Ted simply with one last effort, pushed the rotund man to the ground. "Stay there." He said with a hardened tone. "Todd, we'll see where our boy is eh?" He tapped his communicator and called. "Sheppard, Hasluck here. We've reached the cave exit what is your eta?"

Mckay heard Shepperd's reply to Janus and rolled his eyes

"Very funny, and im sure Woolsey will let you thro, he'd be a fool not to, your an ancient, your knowledge is invaluable to us, plus i have to get a good look at this jumper, maybe we could adapt the others, work together, you know i nearly ascended myself " And he gave Janus one of those smug little smiles.

Zelenka sat and listened to Mckay and finally mumbled

"yesss he was unbearable for that short time"
Mckay glared at him

"If i recall correctly, i, saved your life"
Zelenka sighed

"Yes you did Rodney, but wasnt it your fault my life was in danger in the first place, messing around with power"
Rodney wagged his finger at Zelenka


"You know theres nothing i hate more than jealousy and ungratefulness"
Zelenka's voice raised in pitch to Rodneys claim

"Me, jealous!!...."
Mckay cut in

"See he admits it" he pointed at Zelenka and looked at Janus smiling

"I admitted nothing,you egotistical little man...." They were both cut short by Shepperds voice

A slight smile grazed the Colonel's lips at the sight of Zelenka and Rodney fighting once again. The two of them were seriously like a damn old married couple. Always bickering but in the end care for each other.

"Children behave," Sheppard said trying to keep a straight face. As he hobbled over he heard Hasluck's voice on the line. He paused to adjust himself and speak to the man on the other line, "Hasluck this is Sheppard, we are approacing the cave entrance."

Todd was not exactly sure what Colonel Hasluck meant although he did vaguely recollect a promise of a drink if and when they finally reached safety. He huffed quietly, keeping his eyes fixed on the Genii prisoner as he considered what this promise might entail. His experience with exactly what humans drank was extremely limited, still he was fairly certain the Colonel's sly smile meant they would be having something a little more appetising that the brown liquid called coffee that Dr McKay seemed to favour. So he just smiled back and nodded.

I know you guys hid some, maybe you can help us find a few, Atlantis could sure use some, and seeing as its your city you'll want to help us defend it, and Shepperd, what is taking Hasluck and Todd so long to get here.

{Teyla}

There was something in the air, Teyla felt. She shuddered briefly. Or was it? There! And again. No, not in the air. Her mind. It was her mind. Something she hadn't felt in a long time. The pull of...

"Wraith..." She breathed, her eyes wide in shock at recognition. There it was again, a small, barely noticeable tendril of Wraith energy, pushing against that mental boundary set up in her mind long ago during those trying times. She tried pushing it away, tried reaffirming the boundary, not wanting this, not now. There were no Wraith here, safe for Todd, and she knew it wasn't him. Or was it? It seemed familiar, somehow. She couldn't tell, it was puzzling. She only knew her Wraithy-sense was working overtime, trying to get a grip on it. It always floated off right before she could.

Ronon looked at her funny, what was going on? No threat around as far as he could tell. Was it her imagination? Somehow he doubted it, it wasn't like her. He watched her walk to the ramp, as if waiting for something or someone. She seemed unaware she was doing that. Then he got distracted by McKay and Zelenka, they were bickering again and he grinned a little, as always highly amused at how it never got physical between the two of them, it was always only words. He watched as McKay interrogated poor Janus, the Ancient looked funny opening his mouth over and over trying to answer the questions.

Meanwhile Teyla tried something, tried to send an inquisitive pull back. She wasn't sure she succeeded. The Wraith mental pull stayed the same. Was this just background noise? There weren't that many hives left, so what was this? She waited anxiously for Todd to return with Hasluck, maybe it would help sort this out. Maybe she was merely imagining this. A sick feeling settled in her stomach, though, all the same.

"We should be able to pick any Wraith vessels up on the jumpers sensors" He walked over to the controls and began pressing buttons.
