ENGR MUNINN: THE BEGINNING OF SOMETHING NEW – PAD 21 FOOTAGE

Huginn

From: <REDACTED>, system codename CANDYSTICKS

To: Pandora

Attached are the schematics and registration of the ship you are looking for.  My sources tell me that the owner shoots first and rarely bothers with questions at all – proceed with caution.

This upholds our end of the agreement, Pandora.  Be sure that you keep yours.

Sincerely

_PLAYBACK BEGIN

“Oh shit. Oh shit. Oh shit.”

Clattering of tools dropping. Witness slides down the side of the Vulture, ISS Huginn. Witness identified as Muninn. Navy record: non-existential.

Camera switch to rear. Subject enters fighter from rear hatch, seems to pop open an internal compartment, reaching for something inside.

‘INCOMING MESSAGE DETECTED’

Subject directs attention to comms panel in cockpit.

‘HACKING INTO COMMS’

[Distorted audio message]

“… ‘ave come through, we’re needed as fighter support in Daramo, Squadron Leader is insisting.”

“Okay, I’m making my way down. Fuel up Huginn, do the pre-flight checks and send out the beacon to the flight- time to burn some hulls.”

Witness switches comms to PA system for pad, getting into the harness of the co-pilot position. “All engineers detach fuel lines and rotate the pad, be prepared for launch in ten.”

+++Audio rendered mute by the warming up of thrusters+++
