    Rose pulls out her medical gear and begins administering first aid to stop the bleeding.

    Also, as Rose is caring for her, maybe Physiology roll, checking her body temp, just to ensure she's not a changeling? (3d6)[7] vs. 13

    From his position behind and aside Brazen Hoof, Sniper Scope frowned at the situation. There weren't many options. Rose had the rescue part of the mission under control, so he need not overly worry about that... although he would always worry over his teammates.

    Nothing he carried would help; for anyone but Brazen to assault IronBeak would be tantamount to suicide.

    He would have to take a shot to try and pull IronBeak's attention away from the door.

    Sniper Scope raises his rifle and took aim. He had to be cautious, for he could not afford a miss under these circumstances.

    "Targeting."

    Aiming this turn, just in case Brazen has any other ideas.

    Brazen keeps his shotgun leveled at the door as Rose grabs the mare. "So... Thoughts. We could let him suffocate on his own, we could try to subdue him in close quarters, or ah could set a breeching charge to go off once we get behind the previous bulkhead and let the decompression launch him away with a damaged pod. Given these doors here not sure how long those will last."

    Rose's extensive medical training allows her to easily treat the mare's injuries. She bandages the head-wound and administers some pain-killers for the less serious injuries. The mare definitely has a concussion, however, and that will prove a little more complicated. However, her uniform marks her as the ship's tactical officer. The fact that she's still alive means the General wanted her for something. Who knows what that could be?

    As a matter of fact, he does! The cybernetics were deemed to dangerous to remove without risking his life. And besides, in the event of the station venting atmosphere, they wouldn't need to issue him a vacsuit. He is perfectly capable of surviving in a vacuum for an hour if not more.

    Love pull's up his file and pins it next to the command feed. "He has an internal oxygen supply that will last at least an hour. If we don't do something he will get into that pod and wrench himself free from the ship."

    She starts closing blast doors around the group to seal the rest of the ship off from any unexpected explosions.

    "Rose, if you want to move your patient I'll open a door until you get out."

"Does the crow have zero gee movement mods still on him? Could try to blast him beyond reach of anything but ah can't do that without knowing if he's got ah hostage still.

    The logs confirmed that he only had one pony with him. And logic would dictate that she would be the tactical officer. If he threw her against the wall, then he might have assumed that would kill her and moved onto trying to escape.

    To Rose, "I'll keep an eye on them. You coming back?" Love flicks the command video larger. The quick rewind on the logs didn't show him putting a pony in the airlock. At least, not as far back as she checked.

    "Brazen, he's the only one in the airlock."

    She turns her attention to escorting Rose out with the doors opening in front of her and closing behind her.

    He didn't want to try and shoot through the airlock door. There were too many negative variables for such a rash action. But as more data came to them and he learned more of his foe, an idea began to take root within his mind. It was insane and grizzly, but it might be workable.

    "Love, can you flood that airlock with straight oxygen-- no nitrogen?" Sniper Scope asked.

    "Yeah, soon as I discharge my patient. Just give them the best advantage and i'll find my way back once I'm done here," Rose answers.

    After the bleeding has been stopped and non-changeling status confirmed, Rose picks up her medical gear. "We're going to need to take care of that concussion once the bridge is secured from Ironbeak. Do you know what he is trying to do in there?" she asks the officer.

    "Too Easy!" That phantom pain twinkles. These ponies are not giving it to me easy today. I'm always half-flanking two things at once. Something has to give way. Alright multitasking - I'll open the doors, let Rose out, start filling the airlock, and then close the doors behind Rose as she comes back in.

    Love puts her hoof on a AR screen displaying the ship's schematics and draws a straight to the galley, letting all those doors open.

    "Alright~ You're the point pony~ I've got your flank~ Oxygen, nitrogen. Whatever, I'll fill that airlock right up!. Life support might be packing what your asking to be delivered, and the leak might allow me to just shove it right in without filtering." She's talking out loud as she's working now.

    The mare frowns at Rose and stares at her like she is the most confusing puzzle in the world. "What?" she asks softly, "I...I don't speak Prench. Do you know Equestrian?"

    Love's hack succeeds. In fact, it succeeds so well that the computer now views filling the airlock with oxygen as its most important function. To this end, it shuts down life-support to the rest of the ship in order to better channel all the oxygen to the airlock. An airlock which has a huge gaping hole that leads directly to space in its outer door.

    Of course, venting atmosphere is against one of the computer's primary directives. So as it goes to put all the ship's oxygen inside the airlock, another part of it clamps down on the tubes and prevents any oxygen from flowing out. Errors show up all over the place on Love's screen. In the end, the two sides compromise that they will try opening and shutting the outer door to see if that will make it airtight. And so it slips open, the General slips out, and it slams shut again. The problem was not fixed. The airlock still won't hold air. The entire system decides to go off-line so as to have some time to itself to think through this conundrum. All the ship's systems go down, except the emergency lights.

    "I am speaking... dear me, that concussion is bad." Rose opens her medical bag again and this time tests the mare's pupils for sensitivity. She gets on the comm to the hangar, "Is there a medical team available to pick up at the bridge? I have the tactical officer here with a serious concussion. I need a CT scanner ready in your med bay."

    Bucks. She switches to her squad's channel. "Guys, what are you doing? Tell me this is part of the plan because I will need that power back soon."

    Rose waits a short moment to confirm if a medical team can reach the bridge or not.

    "What?" Sniper Scope tried to make sense of Love's strange diatribe. It took him far too long to realize that she was already acting upon his request. "No, I simply need to know--"

    And then it was over. The entire ship went dead.

    Sniper Scope slammed his hoof against his face. At the moment, he desperately wished he could curse. But not caring much for royalty removed that option from one's literary ability.

    "No. IronBeak escaped." He informed Rose.

    He jogged over to the airlock. Maybe by some fluke of chance IronBeak was still in a position to be neutralized.

    He should have taken the shot.

    "We have a medical team on the...what the buck just happened?" Star Chaser says. Fortunately, the comms the EDF and Royal Guard are using do not rely on the ship for power. "Love, fix it. We need this ship's systems online."

    There are, unfortunately, no windows into the airlock. And with the ship down, the EDF cannot even use the AR to tell if he is still behind it or not.

    "Crap!" Love stands up on her hind hooves and faints onto the ground with a metal thud.

    Laying on her back she says, "Woah, Woah! Before you go blowing things up look behind you. The rest of the ship is exposed to that airlock. I never closed the door behind Rose. You'll need to close that door without power before you even think about getting to Ironbeak."

    "I think he's gone team. If you're going after him still you'll have to do it on your own. I need to get down to the maneframe to fix this. I abused the ship a wee bit, tickled her a bit too much, and she shut right up." She sighs. "There are so many doors to open to get to the computers!" She leans to the side and stands up, and then starts packing up her equipment. "I'll be opening doors if you need me."

    "Star Chaser. Feel free to let the engineers out of their box. Maybe, they can help get the ship up and running again."

    Sniper Scope considered Brazen's request and then shook his head.

    "I agree with the others. By the time you sealed the room and I opened this door, IronBeak will be long gone. It would be a great risk to the ship for little benefit. Also, we would be fighting in a vacuum and I cannot breathe in space."

    Here, he paused to tap his ballistic best meaningfully.

    "Beside, IronBeak was a target of opportunity. He is not our mission. The more time and resources we expend on IronBeak, the less we have for our real target."

    Sniper Scope dug into one pouch of his web gear and withdrew his signature calling card. He flicked the spent cartridge across the floor. As much as he loathed signing his name to this disaster, one had to take responsibility for one's failures as well as success.

    As the debate goes on, the medical team arrives at Rose's position, three ponies in the white, medic uniform with a red cross on the front. Though it is very good armor, some have questioned the wisdom of dressing up the medics in such obvious uniforms. It is easy for an enemy to pick them off, hence why they tend to stay behind when not needed. However, despite complaints, the uniforms were never changed. The signed petition came back with a large "Denied" stamped on the front and the note "Don't worry, you look fabulous" written in very neat letters down below.

    The leader, a grey-coated unicorn mare, salutes as the others begin unpacking their supplies. "What's the status on the patient?"

    Love pushes air out like she's going to whistle but never presses her lips. "You know me. It's waste under the bridge at this point."

    She keeps packing up her equipment. When she's ready to go, she'll use one of her power packs to start opening doors toward her squad. The ship engineers can fix up the ship. That's not her problem.

    After putting a wrench in her bag she uses her hoof to blow a kiss to the ship. "I'll miss you. You wonderful machine you."

    "I'm really glad we headed here first! I didn't think the guards would struggle so much. If I remember correctly the corvid came over on trams. We should be able to use that to get to the station's core."

    Brazen sighs, not wanting to let one such as Ironbeak to escape but they indeed had more important matters. "Star Chaser. Can you relay to any other ships in the area about whose in the escape pod bearing this ship's credentials? Chances are he's hoping to link up with his buddies but if we've anyone in range it's a chance. Engineers, any chance you could try shooting the pod down with the warbot once we get the ship running again?"
