Inwardly Frostbite groaned, not wanting to give anything away to Steph. She, and in fact this whole mission was probably more than anyone sane could cope with. The thought they could leave something crucial behind was something that bothered Frostbite, especially as it might come to rear its ugly head if they took the ship that contained it. Whatever this top security 'it' was.

Although Steph was probably fully jacked up on energy, nonetheless they didn't need to be sidetracked by what was now being contained, already their hope of pulling together a scavenger force was in tatters as so many of the ships were already destroyed. But if they could get and keep this ship, with its secrets might they have some leverage to work with? Frostbite wasn't about to have a game of 20 questions to work it out. First priority remained taking the ship, then they could take a look at what was stowed aboard after.

OOC: sorry for the delay, been busy.

Progress slowed and the pair made their way as best as they could without setting alarms off.

Eventually of course they were discovered thanks to the missing status of staff from their posts after Steph used every opportunity to top up her life energy. Following Frostbots' suggestion they diverted from their course to divert security forces to different sections of the ship. When they got to the access tubes and tunnels that could lead to the bridge, the place was in lockdown with sensors and blast doors in place.

Not a problem for frostbite as his 'ghost in the machine' Frostbot had already embedded itself in the computers of the ship and that saw every hatch swish open at their approach.

"So far so easy." whispered Steph as the pair looked through a mesh grill down onto the bridge. The huge ship had taken something of a battering but smashed through the opposing forces. Now it held station to stop the rebel forces from amassing and was joined by other ships that slowly created a foothold.

The bridge was manned by dozens of crew. All humanoid, no clones as these were all officers with ranks.

Frostbite was about to make his move when the bridge door swished open. Two hulking War Cyborgs clomped in, flanking a smaller human looking figure dressed in a white smock. He walked on unsteady feet but batted away the hands of technicians who offered support. The bridge crew looked surprised at first and the Captain indignant, but the mans eyes widened at the presence of the newcomer.

"Who's that?" whispered Steph.

Frostbite couldn't immediately answer. The man walking through the door on unsteady feet was without his costume but there could be no doubt.

it was Richard King, the superhero known as Lionheart!

Frostbite was momentarily stunned, either what he was seeing was some kind of clever rouse or something much worse was afoot. One thing was sure, Richard, Lionheart would not be siding with this monstrous empire.

"Steph that is either some sort of doppelganger or our problems just got worse. I want you to drain him as soon as you get close. If it is Lionheart, then this will be over quickly as we cannot stand against him. His power levels are off the chart and even together we're simply no match for him. Still, this doesn't make sense..."

Frostbite had to wonder what was going on, but standing around wasn't going to reveal it. With a few short comments to Steph, Frostbite readied himself for action.

OOC: Wow talk about a twist in the tale. Ok so I'll slip into the room, either phasing or going liquid form and slipping through the grate, then I'll cause some sort of diversion so as to draw the Cyborgs towards me, and then allow Steph to slip in and try and target Richard King if she can. However, my suspicion is that this is Timmy's work and that 'Richard' is some sort of clone body that he is occupying? I could be wrong but there is no doubt that our enemies are up to something - perhaps an old nemesis trying once again to model themselves on Lionheart to gain a semblance of his power?

Anyway, Frostbite when in position will release Frostbot and then go on the offensive against the Cyborgs, trying to take them down with a multiple attack if I can.

Frostbite oozed into the room and formed into a humanoid form, causing surprise and outrage in the room!

The officers scrambled for the weapons locker even as Cyborgs clomped forwards to shove them away and bring weapons to bear!

The man in the medical smock laughed out loud "Ha! You have made a grievous error 'Hero'! We have cloned your friend and are currently turning out an army of superhumans!"

'He is mistaken.' said Frostbot. 'From what we know of Lionheart, he is a perfect physical specimen - for a human - but the majority of his powers come from his training and mental abilities. Until Timmy Jones finds a way to activate the latent abilities he can rely only on the physical capabilities that Lionheart himself would be able to use were his mental powers not available.'

Steph rushed out and thrust a hand out "There's no chance this will work but here goes anyway!"

OOC Vampirism 9 + Roll(2d10)+0: 6,2,+0 Total: 17 vs TN11 + Dex 7 (18) MISS

"Told you!" shouted Steph but she added "is it me or is he nowhere near as fast as he used to be?"

That occurred to Frostbite too. Lionheart at his usual levels could mop the floor with him and his fledgling team without breaking sweat, but the man in the smock in front of him was a pale imitation! Still, he could be toying with him...

The cyborgs snapped his attention back to the present.

OOC How are you attacking them? One at a time, both, increase the attack to encapsulate Lionheart/Timmy and some of the bridge crew?

OOC: Sorry for the delay, lots of stuff going at the moment and to be honest not had the mental space to think so as to write.

Frostbite wasn't going to take any chances and put his powers out as widely as he could to encompass the Lionheart imposter. Although he might not have Lionheart's full range of abilities, with the Cyborgs backing him up and Steph's hesitant aim, Frostbite needed to make sure that he got his best in first.

OOC: Ok so let's try and take Timmy/Lionheart down first and then worry about the others after. I'm concerned that this is going to be a more difficult fight if we don't get him, followed by the Cyborgs.
