Atlas Recovery
« on: January 11, 2022, 03:40:40 AM »
One Week After the Aperture Ball


Jordan Rayne sat at his desk, looking over more of the recent satellite photos of the Atlas crash site. These were higher quality than the one's he had at the Ball, and they showed the top capsule shaped module scattered into pieces over a 4 mile cone. It'd be hard to narrow down an exact position on the flight recorder and computer, might take awhile. The Captain's face flashed through his head, he had screwed up last time, got too focused on work and missed his chance with her. This was a second chance at that, if he got stationed with her again that is. He shook his head, clearing her face away, focusing back on his work. He turned to his computer and began typing up a message to the email he had gotten from Gary Hale.

To Fleet Admiral David Jackson,

I received this email from ASA Director Gary Hale after he got into contact with you last Friday evening. I know he already told you about my request but I felt that it would be more professional for such a request to come straight from me. I am requesting your permission to allow me to use one of your vessels to reach the crash site of the Atlas Space Capsule, the debris of which has landed in your waters about 6 miles off shore. I will supervise this entire mission on site and will need permission to use the ship to launch multiple Submersible UAVs to sort through the wreckage in order to locate the flight recorder and computer of the capsule. This could take many weeks and I want to make sure you know that my government will cover all costs for this mission, including all running costs for said ship. I look forward to your response eagerly.

V/r,
Jordan Rayne
Lord Minister of Space and Aeronautics
Revana

Fleet Admiral David Jackson was very much the architect of Achkaerin's navy, smart and calm. He spent his days reading reports, giving updates to the relevant authorities, attending briefings, doing paperwork and spending time with family. As he stood looking out of his office window there was a knock on the door "Come." he said, the door opened and in stepped Captain Yuki Tyler who looked a little nervous, this was perceptually for her the equivalent of being summoned to the headmasters office but she wasn't aware that she'd done anything wrong.

"Captain Tyler." David said "You're familiar with Jordan Rayne?"
"I am." Yuki said blushing slightly
"He's asking for an Achkaerinese vessel to help locate where the debris of the Atlas rocket in particular the flight controller is" David said "You have the history with him, so does your crew, are you happy to do it?"
"Sounds like we need CORAL help." Yuki said "But yes I'll do it."
"Six miles off shore." David said
"Aye sir." Yuki said
"I'll set it up." David said, he'd wait until Yuki left before sending confirmation to Jordan.

Jordan Rayne stepped into the VH-25, the government helicopter that Evelyn has made mandatory for all official trips from the Palace. He had already taken it down to Isen City to prep for his trip out to sea. This one would likely be longer than the last one and he needed to make sure he had everything he'd need for a multiple week trip working out of the office. Now the 25 was flying quickly over the Azure Sea, westward towards Achkaerin waters. Around 2 hours into the flight he saw it come into view in the distance, the INS Sharingan, Captain Tyler's ships, glorious and majestic. He smiled to himself as the 25 began to slow, then entering an orbit around the ship.

"INS Sharingan, this is V92-06 carrying Lord Minister Jordan Rayne of Revana, requesting permission to land and come aboard." Jordan heard the pilot say over the radio.

"Permission granted, welcome aboard." Came the response in the headset and Jordan felt it as the Helicopter began to lower toward the pad at the back of the ship. After a few moments Jordan stepped out onto the deck, the 25 spinning back up and departing behind him. Unlike the last trip here, he was a lot more casual, wearing fairly comfortable but still professional clothes rather than the suit he was wearing last time. He followed his escort into the ship.

The INS Sharingan wasn't travelling all that quickly, it was a fairly routine voyage for the crew of the destroyer. Yuki was on the bridge standing at what the Achkaerinese military called 'the chessboard' it was basically a table with a touch screen display and computer built into the top of it, with Jordan aboard ship she turned her attention to the next matter she had to think about "CORAL eta?" she asked
"Ten minutes." came the reply
"Once CORAL's aboard ship have their team come up." Yuki said smiling a little as her XO Commander Beckett stepped onto the bridge
"Mr Rayne Captain." Beckett said

Yuki turned around and looked at Jordan "You don't call, you don't write, I'm starting to think it takes Revana losing some space tech to see you." she said
