Shad woke up with two other people in the main elevator. There was clearly damage to the whole installation, smoke and fire could be seen down the shaft. The others in the elevator were Vandix, a quiet and reserved Klingon who did not seem like others of his kind, too shifty, and Duranos, a former Orion Syndicate Lieutenant who was thrown into chaos after the destruction of the Satterfeld base as anyone with a crew made a play for power. It didn’t go to well for Duranos and he ended up on the Black Rock. He knows of Shad and blames him and the Hellraisers (maybe him more for being a fellow Orion) for causing, and apparently still causing, trouble.
Shad hits the button to lower the elevator and the cable breaks and it falls. In a feat of physicality and luck Shad manages to jump before the platform crashes to a halt on debris and takes no damage. Just another thing the hurting Duranos can blame Shad for. Shad got out first and helped the other two out, even when Vandix refused to help as he did not wish to chance falling down the pit. They all manage to escape the elevator.
Stahl woke up in a room with Burrok, a Trill Assassin who is being hunted by his employer because he killed his daughter and Iolis the Tellarite banker who stole an artifact to pay off banking debts but the sect who guarded it is hunting him down for it. Hence he is here.
There was a roaring fire outside their door and smoke filling up the room they are in. They walked through fire to escape and Stahl almost died going back into the fire to save Iolis.
Zhaftan was on a surface hallway made of transparent aluminum. The doorway behind caved in, the doorway ahead holding back a roaring fire from a plasma leak in the center a few barrels of a substance that was marked unstable and becoming agitated from the blazing heat that was creeping its way into the room as the asteroid began to approach the light side of the Gas giant. The transparent aluminum only magnified the heat. Zhaftan was trapped! After some messing around he moved the barrels into the heat, exploded them knocking a hole through the hallway, then opened the door to the vacuum to put the fire out, then walked in and closed the door behind him.
Savar woke up surrounded by reeds, the sky above had thee moons. the Vulcan climbed up a rock to see over the reeds. He saw a portal off in the distance ahead, and moving reeds pushed by some hidden creature coming towards him. He ran towards the portal, when he looked back he saw hungry little chicken dinosaurs chasing him. As he got closer to the portal he saw that it was above the ground, too high to jump. Still running, he grabbed a large strong reed, and with great difficulty, pole vaulted through the portal before the dinos could eat him.
Just as soon as Zhaftan closed the door behind him Savar came crashing into his back and Regis fell through ceiling tiles. Savar nerve pinched Regis again.
Over the personal coms a plea for help from Broo Ha! “Power is cut to the docking bay door. Someone needs to get to engineering to turn it on! The Asteroid is knocked out of orbit! We are going to break up in the atmosphere any moment!”
The Hellraisers meet there, just in time to dump the core before it blows! Battery power takes over but it is falling quickly. The Hellraisers hasten to the Docking Bay to exact revenge against their enemies.
When the open the interior Bay Door, they hit a booby trap left by their Nemesi, an exploding barrel of anti-matter, it fails to go off right away so the Hellraisers manage to survive. Broo Ha and Skizzor are nowhere to be seen. Regis informs them that there are cloaked and powered escaped pods, of Trill design, that can be launched from the Rail Gun in the old mine. They must have headed there!
People who were in the bay before say they saw the two, but then a large black spider thing came into the bay, stuck a out of phase claw through the Nausican’s (Broo’s) head, then they all left.
But with the asteroids orbit decaying into the gas giant, breaking apart at any moment, the bay doors still stuck, would the Hellraisers have to sacrifice their ship to save themselves?!?
No. The blew the bay doors off with the ships weapons.
They tracked down the escape pods through the cloak. Impossible to know where their quarry lay, or if a insane other worldly telepathic evil phase spider may be on there too, Shad did the only thing he could. Even though the voice of a small child came over the coms insisiting the their quarry was not there, Shad blew the escape pod out of the sky.
(A while later the point was made that everybody in that station was hiding from something and they catered to the worst in the sector. But still a little girl?)
Zhaftan came up with the plan to add visual searches when Regis revealed that the Shadow may be cloaked to sensors.
They stopped the other pods, scanned each person, found two with those mind parasites in their neck. Worrik a Nausican crime lord, also hiding out after the fall of Satterfeld, and Grizz Neutron, a pirate. Stahl removed the parasites.
Zhaftan spotted the cloacked pod. It went full invisible, but showed up on re-entery into the atmosphere. Shad blew it out of the sky.
They even landed and took samples (found a broken blade), to confirm the kill.
