TSP: Ch. 1 - Into the Silent Planet (IC)

Image Image Image
Far beyond the edge of the inhabited universe lies the Silent Planet, a fertile but isolated world rumoured to be the final resting place for a number of lost interplanetary expeditions. Despite the planet’s deadly reputation, legends of riches, vast resource deposits, and lost alien technology tempt those brave, or foolish, enough to take the risk. Will the Silent Planet’s latest batch of colonists quell its dangerous wildlife and hostile inhabitants, or will they end up as another in a long line of expeditions that have simply ‘gone silent’?

Devlin looked at Raden with a bit of wonder. Despite the apparent symbiosis, he took steps to shield their younger brother. Something only a brother or parent would do. The older Mallory appreciated the gesture greatly, and nodded his head in thanks.

"Good idea." he murmurer.

Those left to do the interrogating were close to the cabin now.

"So back to the questions."

"The usually, I suppose. What pirate group. Who their leader is, how big the organization. Where they are striking from. Did they attack our parents. Anything else?"

Oleg nods when Rian suggests cleaning the hold with Jaden, and motions for the young medic to come with him. As they’re leaving, he leans down to whisper in Jaden’s ear. “Make sure to bring your laser pistol.”

Image
Svetlana quickly responds when Rian asks if the droid could help with the interrogation. “My primary directive is ensuring that the captive remains secure, but I am happy to provide any assistance necessary provided that it does not conflict with this objective.”

The droid responds to Delvin with a few additional questions that they could potentially ask the captive pirate. “A likely corollary to the question about where they are striking from would be the location of their second fighter, whether both craft were based at the same location, and have many craft they have in their possession. We know from their first assault that the pirates have at least two, and that there are at least four more, including one known as Lobo who possessed a pistol similar to the one favoured by your father.” Svetlana pauses for a moment before continuing. “Additionally, though it seems self-evident, the reasons for their attacks may prove illuminating. The attacks only began after your parents’ death. That timing appears highly suspicious, and could be worth inquiring about.”

“When you are ready, I can provide access to the room where the captive is being held.”

Caitlin looked at the droid, suddenly aware of some information that she either had missed earlier or had never known. "Did you just say that the pirates using this fighter have only been stopping you since about when our parents were murdered? Yet this fighter was from a ship that was missing years ago."

"Yes, I would agree finding out more about their purpose and reasons for raiding now."

She turned to her two brothers, "Who is going to lead this interrogation? Are we going to try good cop, bad cop as I offered?"

Jaden smiled at the captain, and went back to his room. They had just completed their first mission.

"Let's go," the boy said to Oleg as he came back with his laser pistol in his pocket. He tried to act casual so his sister won't find out.

Once Jaden was gone, Rian turned to Caitlin and Delvin, face grave.

“We can take the lead, if you like,” he said. “We are familiar with the tactic you refer to. We can appear to be bloodthirsty and willing to cause him significant pain while you argue for leniency if we go too far.”

He paused, then, considering.

“How far do you wish us to go, exactly? Should we cause him physical harm? We do not find it pleasant to do so, as we have experienced such things ourselves. However, we were innocent and were not attempting to harm others. This is a moral situation that is nuanced.”

Caitlin hard a cold, hard look as she considered Rian's question. She was sorely tempted to really let the leashes off when it came to aggressively interrogating the pirate. The bastard deserved little quarter.

"Well, now that it is just adults here, perhaps being a little rough on our prisoner is okay. Enough pain to get his attention that things could be worse. But initially, we need not cause any lasting damage. Frankly, a dead pirate is not what we want and too much torture could cause him to tell us anything we want to hear."

Delvin eyed Rian with some concern before masking quickly masking it. The fact that his younger brother was intimately familiar with torture techniques shouldn't have surprised him. His brother's recently revealed story on the symbosis and experimentation a likely explanation. However, Devlin was surprised and concerned that Rian would readily and rapidly inflict the same on another human being...

The older Mallory shook his head. This was a pirate they were dealing with. The man had and probably ordered worse. Whatever Delvin and his siblings had in store, the pirate had it coming.

"Right, no need to be gentle. But like you said, Caitlin, it is a fine line."

"We can always dangle the carrot of not turning him over to authorities for any kind of bounty..."

Oleg leads Jaden to the hold. “Okay, well, first things first, we do actually need to, ah...” He waves his hand at the dead pirates “...deal with this. You’re a med student right? You’re used to this sort of thing, yes?” The captain seems hesitant. “We just need to move them to the side, maybe put them in the storage room for now.”

Image
Svetlana responds in the affirmative when Caitlin “Correct. Though prior to the recent colonization efforts we did not travel this route and thus have been out of the reach of these particular pirates, there have been no prior reports of space piracy in this region. Encountering pirates in such a sparsely populated region is highly anomalous.”

The droid interjects when Delvin suggests telling the pirate they won’t turn him over. “It was my understanding that the captured pirate and stolen fighter would be turned over to the appropriate authorities. What alternative course of action are you proposing?”

Delvin glanced at the Svetlana with a hard expression.

"Oh, I never said we wouldn't turn him over. As for an alternative, I was thinking more like a short walk out of the air lock. Be the pirate doesn't need to know that."

The older Mallory put on a grim face at the thought. Spacing was the least that the pirate deserved.

"Alright, any more to discuss before we start the interrogation?"
