6-27-2015 “Operation Back Atcha”
This mission was planned by the Ravens CAG, Colonel Leonidas Ranson using an idea from our last mission Operation Green Haze and the irradiated Tylium on Planet EM.
ATTENTION ON DECK! At Ease!
Well Folks, The Cylons Are about to attempt some Trickery on us; Guess what? It's THEY who are about to get 'Punk'd'!
After the Last Op at planet 'Green Haze', The Scientists at the Ministry of Defense Have pieced together A Puzzle Concerning EM Irradiated Tylium; Not only could the Stuff Create Havoc with Colonial Military Vessels, If Secretly Slipped in with Normal Tylium, In a big enough Amount, It can be used As A Poor man's Dirty Bomb, With Devastating Results!
Further Intel Has Discovered That the Cylons have Loaded Two Standard Tankers With the Stuff; And, They intend to Transfer the Crap to two Colonial Civilian Freighters That have Almost been Reported Missing; Their Registries Still Being Active:
Colonial 6619-B, Registered with A Private Shipping Firm on Gemmenon, and:
Colonial 4108-H, Of Libran Fuel Industries Inc; Last Reported Leaving Ragnar Anchorage.
These Two Civilian freighters Obviously have been Hijacked by Cylon Infiltrators to be used in A Terrorist Attack on A Colonial Military Target; Loaded With the Hot Tylium, They could be used to Not only Destroy A Target, but also the Spread of the Tylium could Seriously Disrupt DRADIS and Communications for a Substantial Period of Time, Leaving The Affected Sector(s) Vulnerable to Cylon Attack.
Intel picked up by Stealth Spy Drones Have indicated A Cylon Build-up 25 Parsecs Past the Red Line, in the Kintara Sector. The Most Recent Recon Flight by the Raven Air Wing has revealed old type Cylon Basestars and Tankers.
Even though these are Older Ships from the First Cylon War, They are still Useful; And, Off to the Side, The recon flight Found the Two Civilian ships.
After this Location was pinpointed, it was found that the Closest Colonial Military Post of Importance was Listening Post TARTARIS, Which has A Direct Link to Fleet HQ on Picon;
This Post Is VITAL to Detecting Any Cylon Threats to the Colonies; The Deduced Plan is for the Cylons to Bring the Freighters with the Hot Tylium to the Station, Then Ram the Station, Destroying it, and Blacking out The Entire Sector with the Spread of Irradiated Dust; The Cylons would have Kicked in the Door, and Walked in.
However, We now have the Opportunity to Turn this Around on them; Our spy drones have Pinpointed A possible Location Where the Cylons will transfer the Hot Tylium from the Tankers to the Civilian ships; The Raven Air Wing will Pop in Just before they Begin the Transfer; We will destroy one of the Tankers, and Capture the other; Meanwhile Two MARDET Teams will Liberate the Civilian ships, and Return them to Colonial Space.
As this Transpires, The Lead MARDET Team Will Place a 10kt Nuclear device on the Cylon tanker, Then they will Pilot the Ship Back to The Cylon task force in the Kintara Sector, Which will be Waiting To Move in once the Station is destroyed; The Team will Activate the device, Put the Ship on Auto-Pilot, And Quickly Egress With the Raptors; As the Tanker Gets into the Middle of the Cylon force, The Device will Detonate, Disabling The Cylon Base Ships.
Timing is going to be Crucial; however, if things go Right, We can turn back a potential Wolf at our Doorstep.
(Port Flight Deck) ATTENTION! As You Were!
OK Folks, We Now have the Toasters Right where we Want them; Spy Drone one Has Placed them At the Point where they Are going to Transfer the Hot Tylium to the Civvies; We're going to Crash that Party Within the Hour; Remember, We Kill one Tanker, Leave the Other; MARDET Team One will Be Taking that Back to the Cylons with A Little Surprise!
You Know Your Assignments; Get the Job Done.
