Preflight Conversations

Talk to Shotglass

Hi there, Maverick.
How are things today? Doing well, I hope.
I've been in a good mood all day. Can't really say why.
No reason, I guess. I just feel like sharing it around, you know?
Here, have a glass on me.
Christopher Blair
Thanks Sam.

Talk to Paladin

James Taggart
Hey, lad, share a drink with me?
How are they treatin' ye these days?
I 'ave no complaints myself.
Just thinkin' about what to do when I retire next week.
Think I'll get me a small ship and fly around the galaxy.
Of course, it'll put me in hock till the end of time… but I can't think of what I'd rather do.

Talk to Jazz

Zach Colson
Hey Maverick. I hear you've been doing some special work for the Colonel. Can you tell me about?
Christopher Blair
I'm afraid I don't know what you're talking about, Colson.
Zach Colson
Yeah, sure. Got to keep it secret, I know.
Maybe some time when Paladin's not around you'll fill me in?
James Taggart
If the man says he doesn't know what you're talking about, he doesn't know. Leave him be, boy.
Zach Colson
Oh, so you're a part of it too Taggart. I'm beginning to get the picture.
James Taggart
Don't mind him, lad. He's too full of curiosity and mischief to make real trouble.

Mission Briefing

Mission Briefing. Cairo System

Peter Halcyon
All right, pilots, settle down. Lets get to work. Today we have been assigned basic patrol missions.

You listen as the Colonel completes the mission assignments

Peter Halcyon
…and Omega wing is Maverick and Maniac.
It's a normal three point patrol.
Hit Nav 1 carefully, we've have reports of Kilrathi activity in this sector.
Nav 2 should be clear, but stay alert, intel's been wrong before.
Nav 3 is a last quick stop, then come back to the 'Claw. Any questions?
Christopher Blair
Yes sir, we are to engage the enemy, correct?
Peter Halcyon
Yes, unless the odds are against you. Use your best judgment. No more questions? Very well, then.. Dismissed.

Mission Debriefing

Maniac Survived Maniac Killed Maniac Already Dead

Peter Halcyon
I'm glad you both made it back. I have some bad news for you, pilots.

Peter Halcyon
I'm glad you made it back alive Lt.

Christopher Blair
I lost Maniac sir, I just couldn’t…

Peter Halcyon
I know Maverick, it hurts every time a pilot dies, but that’s the reality of war. More bad news, Maverick.

Peter Halcyon
I’m glad you made it back alive Lt. More bad news, Maverick.

Peter Halcyon
We lost Bossman today.
He and Angel were ambushed by several wings of Kilrathi Imperial Guard.
They didn't have a chance.

Christopher Blair
Is Angel okay, sir?

Peter Halcyon

She wasn't badly hurt. They'll let her out of sickbay in a few hours.
We'll postpone the funeral until she and Boss's wife can attend.
And I just finished a vidlink conference with the TCS Austin.
We'll be keeping Jazz and Doomsday for a while.
All right, Maverick, lets hear your report.

Christopher Blair
Yes, sir. Nav 1 was full of Kilrathi. I lost count, but they weren't much trouble.

Fralthi Destroyed Fralthi Survived

Christopher Blair
There was a Fralthi and two Jalthi at Nav 2. The Fralthi's history, sir.

Christopher Blair
When we got to Nav 2 there was a Fralthi and two Jalthi. The Fralthi got away.

Christopher Blair
Finally, at Nav 3, there were several wings of medium fighters.
Once they were taken care of it was back to the Tiger's Claw.

Fralthi Destroyed Fralthi Survived

Peter Halcyon
Good job.

Peter Halcyon
Good job, though it’s too bad you didn’t get the Fralthi.

Peter Halcyon
Let's go over the flight recorder data.

Maverick's Kills Maverick Struck Out

The recorder shows you credited with killing $K, Maverick.

Maverick, the flight recorder shows you with no kills, not good pilot.

Maniac's Kills Maniac Struck Out
Maniac took down $L Kilrathi ships. Maniac didn't take down any enemy ships.
Maniac Killed

And then we lost him.

Maniac Survived Maniac Killed
Well, get some rest pilots. Oh, and drop by my office later Maverick. Well, get some rest Maverick. Oh, and drop by my office later Maverick.
Colonel Halcyon's Office
Peter Halcyon
Blair, come in I need to speak with you.
Christopher Blair
Yes, sir?
Peter Halcyon
We're having to change some pilot assignments, effective immediately you'll be reassigned.
I need you in Star-Slayer squadron, flying a Raptor-class heavy fighter.
Christopher Blair
I see, sir. I'll do my best.
Peter Halcyon
Good, I'm glad to hear it. That's all then Lt. Dismissed.

Communications Officer

Colonel, Jump point is 8 seconds away… 5, 4, 3, 2.

The Tiger's Claw jumps into the Anchorage system.

Medal Earnt Maniac's Funeral

Hangar Deck

Peter Halcyon
For excellence in combat with the Kilrathi enemy,
the Terran Confederation is proud to present the Silver Star.
Your courage is an example to the Confederation's finest defenders.
Well done, Maverick, congratulations.
Christopher Blair
Thank you, sir!

Flight Deck

Peter Halcyon
We are gathered here to pay our last respects to a good friend.
And one of the Terran Confederation's boldest defenders.
2nd Lt. Todd Marshall was one of our youngest pilots, and perhaps the most mis-understood member of our squadron. Although he often spoke of his desire to die in combat, his death is truly our loss. Farewell Maniac.
Christopher Blair
Goodbye Maniac, I guess you got what you deserved.
