On the morning of October 26th, The captain requested your presence for a briefing.
the briefing room is small, utilitarian. A flight ops room from the ancient air national guard base. The captain points at a map hung along the front of the room.
"due to the recent reports of regime activity near the outer settlements, we are preparing a long-term scouting and observation mission. It will be past the northeast perimeter, near the ruins of Chattanooga." he pauses, looking at each of you. "you each bring skills to the table that make you invaluable on a mission like this. It's why you escaped in the first place."
"Hancock.. we'll need you to move quickly, and make sure we are informed securely if you spot something. Murphy, you're there to keep everyone on guard safe and secure. And having both a telepath and a technopath will help give you the opportunity to spot anything that comes along."
"The main operational site is here," he says, pointing to a spot on the map, "but the perimeter patrol will take you in a long arc – from Knocksville to Birmingham." He lowers his gaze, folding his arms across his chest. "It's a lot to ask of you, but you are needed."
