"Fine speech Major. Heh, in another life you could have been a public speaker. Not as exhilarating though." Lonergan murmured. "Hope you don't mind me adding a little addendum."

Shifting his gaze back to the group, he steeled his eyes. "Know this though marines. Do your jobs wrong, you can expect a little discussion with me afterwards. It won't be pleasant. Do your jobs right and we'll get along just fine." Lonergan finished just as one of the private contractors...had a little debacle and left.

"What the hell was that about?" Lonergan wondered.

Solus leaned over to Lonergan. Watching the Marines reactions. "Traumatic stress flashes." He said lowly. "Happens to those who've seen more than they can handle."

The Bridge: "Captain on deck!" Jansen bellowed, The Pantheurian communications officer across from Destiny would flip a switch and a quick Boson pipe whitle would blare.

Martyr: The young tactition would feel Jansen's eyes boring into her, like something was expected of her.

Naomi: "Yeah I guess, so." The Xyl said he was about to say something else when Jansen announced the captains presence. He cursed under his breath before turning his attention to his commanding officer.

Training Range Marines: Satheera took in her superiors speeches with pride, nothing else filled her with more pride than knowing she was serving aboard such a distinguished vessel with such worthy allies. Then the merc had a break down and she turned to see what was going on, she blinked her large silver eyes with concern for the man. "Is he all right?" She muttered to anyone listening.

Master at arms: "My goodness, I don't know which of us has the most imposing recruits." Lt. Higgins said walking towards Redfield and noticing the large Pantheurian. "Solus, where are you going?" He called.

Flight Briefing Room: Deardra stood up next, "Ensign, Deardra Sphinx! Callsign Lynx and honor to be here sir." He said. Cl'tin seemed to scoff at his entheusiasm Cutthroat glared at him, the cocky Xyl was not making any new friends at the moment.

Maharil She would find the door to the training range blocked by a Master at Arms, "Sorry ma'am, there's something of a meeting in progress right now, don't know when it will be over." At that point Solus would emerge from the room, the suddenly small looking human stepped back letting him pass. At that time was when higgins called out to him.

Medical Bay: "Yes sir, thankfully the crew is practicing good hygeine and that always goes a long way." The nurse replied. "Is there anything you need from me right now?" She asked.

Lonergan frowned as his mind wandered back to his own issues. Running his hand threw his hair, he replied. "Well, I can certainly relate. Some punching bag should be all he needs. At least...that's how I cope."

"Maybe I should go to the med bay." Omega muttered. He walked past a room with a plaque on it saying "FLIGHT BRIEFING ROOM". Omega peeked in. "Holy crap! Excalibur!" He exclaimed, a smile on his face for the first time in a while.

*Alice: The Commander visibly winces as the horn blares, that was going to take getting used to.

"Thank you for that Lt. Jansen..." she says with clenched teeth before glancing over the rest of the room. She waited for the salutes so she could quickly get that out of the way.

*Destiny: "Well that's something." Destiny grunts a she notes the horn blowing. She wonders who had that idea before turning and doing as instructed rather quickly. Best get it over with nice and quick.

*Larkin: The recruit stayed at attention the entire time. When the Major gave a stare in his direction, he didn't move a muscle, save for fighting a reflex to wag his tail. He was exited and anxious. He was expecting some ball-busting, or at least some order to do something, boot camp got him used to that. Of course when there were some talks bout some of the more veteran soldiers, his ears couldn't help but pick them up. It was a habit, but only a slight twitch of his left ear was a visible tell. He stayed still as he casually picked through bits of conversation. When Omega...relapsed is the best word Larkin would use to describe, he only looked in the direction with his eyes. After he left, he heard the other two share more conversation. When the larger daedalian leaves, Larkin is curious and follows him with his gaze. He was big, old, and scarred....worth looking into later. He watches the doo way for a few seconds before focusing back straight ahead. This was a little awkward.

He shook his head.

"No, things should be quiet. I don't anticipate many emergency cases around here today, but do let me know if my expertise will be needed?"

And reaching for a military bible, he began to read from his bookmarked page.

Redfield

Jason smiled as Lonergan put his own personal touch onto the speech. He was hoping Jake would catch him teeing that up. After all, they had to keep the Marines in check. Too much confidence could be a bad thing. It wasn't so much a good cop bad, cop approach as always remembering to combine inspiration with discipline. The Marines would come to accept it in time and the discipline was more well-received from an experienced senior NCO like Lonergan that the troops could relate to than a commissioned officer like "Wright".

Jace caught Omega's episode out of the corner of his eye and moved quickly to control the situation. The last thing they needed was a scene. As the mercenary left, Redfield spoke aloud. "I expect complete professionalism and discretion from each of you in the coming days. I trust you won't let Master Guns or I down. Dismissed."

As the Marines began to file out, Jason saw the Security C/O, Higgins, approaching. "My goodness, I don't know which of us has the most imposing recruits," he said. Jason smirked. "Got that right, Lieutenant. It's a good thing they're on the same side," he remarked lightheartedly. "Should make a hell of a team."

"If they get along. Marines usually feel like the biggest kid on the playground...with good reason but still. There might be a few scuffles here and there, lots of bragging I predict but their hearts are in the right place." Lonergan noted.

It took a few seconds for Charles to put the pieces together.
Sphinx....Sphinx....
Then it struck him. "Bloody hell, you're Riddler and Shmirdra's kid aren't you? I'll be dammed. Last time I saw you, you were just a baby. I can barely beleive that Riddler allowed you...no no, that Shmirdra allowed you to enlist." It then struck Charles that his conversational manner may strike the wrong cord with some of the other pilots. Charles quickly corrected his pose before speaking, "Well then Mr. Sphinx, we'll have to catch up later, welcome to the crew. Who's next?"
It was then that he heard his name shouted. He looked around and saw the familier face of Omega. He completely ignored the last point he had made about remaining a leader.
Besides, he's an old friend. Charles reasoned.
"Omega! How are you old chap? It's been a while since we've seen each other."

Larkin was...almost disappointed as they were courteously dismissed. That was just weird to him. As everyone stated to leave, Larkin taps Satheera on the shoulder. Since the Major had started chatting up the other officer' he figure they wouldn't go unnoticed.

"Hey, whaddya say we stick around...see if we get have something interesting happen." he whispers enthusiastically while subtly gesturing towards the Major.

Matlock


Vincent raised his eyebrows. "Not at all," he replied evenly before casting another glance at the Marine C/O addressing his troops. He could see some of the security personnel getting restless in the face of the Marine's speech. So much for everyone getting along.


"Glad to hear it." Garrigan responded, his tone respectful. He briefly considered adding some sort of snide remark, but quickly thought better of it.

All of a sudden, blinding orange pain shot through Omega's vision. His head felt like it would tear open at the seams, "AAAAGH!" Omega yelled out loud. Images flashing through his head. The whole room dead. Blood everywhere. On his weapons. A massacre. Redfield, the Marines, the guards. Blood on his shirt. "AHHHHH!" A Sh'ra tongue flickering in front of him. Ingram, his head blown off. Blood everywhere. The floor. Oh my God. The Sh'ra eating the remains. Look down, find a claw through the chest. "AARRRGGGHHH!!!"

Omega fell back on the cases, the room flashed in between reality and a gory vision. Heads flashed from normal to skulls. Omega closed his eyes. Still there. Burning. After a few seconds, the visions blurred away, leaving only an intense pain. The same intense pain. He picked up his guns and looked at the marines. "The f*ck are you looking at?" With that, he left, heading down the hallway.


The commotion caused by Omega drew Garrigan's attention, eliciting a chuckle from the man. "Well, I wasn't aware the Alliance were enlisting lunatics now." he commented. "Has he been cleared for duty? What if he has another panic attack in the middle of a firefight?" he asked respectfully, the question directed towards Wright and Lonergan.

"Yes," the huge Pantheurian said in a deep voice with an accent denoting where he was raised, "this could become a problem." He'd stick around for a short time to hear Lonergan's or Redfield's response, then go to do a little bit of training if nothing exciting happened.

Naomi saluted the captain, using her human arm. If she was rather closely observed, she'd seem... older. Not in looks, but in mentality. "Naomi Wu, sir. No callsign." She'd say when the time was right, or when it was her turn.

"Not since we flew that escort mission together. Man, you remember that? You almost got your ass killed!" Omega noticed Excalibur's limp. "And don't you look worse for wear, huh." He looked at the pilots, "You guys are lucky. Best wingman I've ever had. Once you get past that weird accent. I might join you on some flying missions pal, just like old times, but I lost my 3 billion credit plane, and you can imagine how hard it is for me to fly a ship without laser swords on the wingtips."

"Eh. He's a private contractor. I'm afraid I'm just a humble marine, I keep my own in line. The big guys in charge surely must have cleared him, they hired him...but I confess I am a bit wary after that episode. In any case, I must get going. I need some chow. Gonna go find the mess hall, excuse me Major." Lonergan said as he started to depart.

Redfield

Jason frowned at Harrigan's question, looking the contractor up and down. "I'm sure the higher-ups wouldn't have cleared him if they felt he couldn't handle the stress. He received the same psychological screening as everyone else."

The truth was, Jace was worried about Omega's relapse. Not only because he genuinely worried about the well-being of the man, but also because it was a firm reminder of what fate could befall Redfield. God knew he'd seen enough on and off the battlefield for it to manifest.


Matlock

Matlock approached Larkin and the Selurian from behind. His arms were crossed in front of his bulky chest as he cleared his throat. "Something holding you up? I believe you were dismissed, Marines. Unless there's something I can help you with," Vincent spoke clearly and without malice. His gaze, however, was unblinking.

Garrigan kept his eyes affixed on the Major's. "You have a point. Still, if the cause of the hallucination is psychological scarring, there's a strong chance that temporary bouts of insanity, like what we just witnessed, could occur... infrequently, at best. If he lost it while engaging the enemy, he could prove to be a major liability."

He paused for a moment. "I've seen first-hand what war can do to a man. I'm sure you have as well, Major. I don't doubt that he's a capable soldier - but it might be best to keep an eye on him... make sure he doesn't snap."

The Bridge: All of the other's would stand and salute as well, and Jansen took note of the ones that weren't snappy enough of it. "Lt. Commander Jansen. Reporting that all is well."

Meanwhile the Pantheurian across from Destiny seemed to have found something interesting, "Mhrr?" She said softly as she fiddle with controls. The pilot next to Naomi would sigh befire returning to his controls he was just acting like he was busy though he always hated it when higher ups came on watch, made him nervous.

Training Range: "What? Trying to cozy up to the command? Think that will get you promoted faster?" Satheera said jockingly and then Matlock would address them. "Oh sorry sir, we didn't realize we HAD to leave. I thought we might get some target practice in." Her tone was respectful except when she emphasised HAD.

Lt. Higgins meanwhile was listening to the conversation, "Perhaps we should take our concerns up the chain of command? I share yur sentiment, Mr. Garrigan. However the Major does bring a valid point, he must have been cleared for duty. Though perhap this is a new development?"

Flight Briefing Room: Deardra was actualy elated that Excalibur knew him, his parents always held him in high regard he was even best man at the wedding. He understood the need to stay profesional though. Then Omega poked his head again, and there they were TWO old comrades from his parents stories, they were older now and even battered but they were there in the flesh.

Cl'tin meanwhile looked on, Just great. A couple of has beens burning the fuel, a talking reg manual and a leader's pet. He thought to himself, he however kept his thoughts to himself.

Solus: The large Daedalian could smell scents wafting from somewhere close by, he probably didn't notice Maharil the pantheurian.

Medical Bay: Pastor would be left to his own devices for a time before the nurse interrupted him, "Sorry to bother you sir, but I think we have a hypochondriach who keeps insisting that there's something wrong with him. I've run all the tests, but either he doesen't beleive me or he thinks i'm not qualified."

Anders was still oddly stoic. He was as weapon in the form of a human. Whatever was the order, he would take it. Anders was just waiting for orders. Still, there was grim determination.
