Quest Given By: Trinni
Requirements: Level 35
Trinni: My scanners have picked up 3 approaching ships! This doesn't look good, friend... In fact, I think it may be the bounty hunters you've already met. I hate to ask you to stay, but if they've found me, I'm going to need your help!
You can count on me!
«Scene: Your fighter flies out of Satiren's atmosphere. The Scene then shows «You» in the ship.»
«You»: Trinni, I'm getting a lock on your visitors. And yes-- I recognize them!
«Scene: Trinni flying toward the other side of Satiren.»
Trinni: «You», I'm taking up position on the other side of Satiren so we can surprise them if need be.
«Scene: You fly toward the three Bounty Hunters' ships. The next Scene is of «You» facing the three.»
«You»: This is «You» of the WarpForce! I know all of you. Why have you all come to Satiren?
«You»: And WHY aren't you all shooting at each other!?!
Rhapsus: We made a deal...
Arty Dedeux: We're splitting the bounty on Trinni's head three ways.
Erith: I have an idea. How about we all meet aboard MY ship and work this out face-to-face?
«You»: Oooooo-kay. How do I know you won't all gang up on me?
Erith: You don't. But we know your reputation, and we respect it.
«You»: Let's do this then.
«This ships fly toward each other. Next Scene: Erith's ship.»
«You»: I'm here. Where are the rest of you??
«Erith, Arty, and Rhapsus enter.»
Arty Dedeux: Alright, let's get this over with! Rhapsus's stench is getting to me.
Rhapsus: Shut up! You're the one crammed inside a tin can! You're probably smelling your own feet!
Erith: Let's get down to business, shall we?
Erith: «You», the three of us found out that we all encountered you and deduced that you have been acting to protect our quarry:
Erith: An elf of Lorian origin named Trinni. Thanks to your frequent travels between your flagship the LSS Alteon and the planet Satiren, we triangulated Satiren's position.
Erith: Yes. So it's YOUR fault we're here. I'm sure your friend Trinni will appreciate that.
«You»: Well... She's not here. You just missed her. I don't know where she went, either.
Arty Dedeux: Oooh!! I know!
«You»: Wait-- how??
Arty Dedeux: I blasted a few hundred of my 74NKs out of an airlock a little while ago. Some of them just managed to run into your friend...
«Scene: Trinni spinning out of control, shooting at 74NKs.»
«You»: I've got to get out of here and back to Satiren before those bounty hunters get back on their toes!
«Scene: Trinni crashes into the water next to her island. Scene changes to show the three Bounty Hunters shooting at your ship. Scene changes to show you in your ship.»
«You»: Alteon, I need some long-range help out here! I'm up against the giant Collolisk ship again. Conventional weapons can't take it down from the outside, BUT--
«You»: --I think I know a way to take it down from the INSIDE! Get me Gravlax...
«Scene returns to Trinni's island.»
Trinni: Whew! That was a close call. My orbital platform barely held together in the crash... At least the splashdown knocked off those two Defilers.
74NK: WE ARE NOT DEFILERS. WE ARE MECHANICAL SERVANTS BUILT BY THE GREAT ARTY DEDEUX, THE GREATEST ENGINEER AND MOST RENOWNED BOUNTY HUNTER IN THE GALAXY.
Trinni: Awwwwww, c'mon!
«Scene: In outer space, the three ships are still shooting at «You». Then, the Collolisk blows up as the Alteon appears. The Scene changes to inside your ship.»
«You»: Warping right INTO the Collolisk was a brilliant idea, huh?
Gravlax: (on radio) Yes, yes it was!
«You»: I'm heading down to Satiren to help Trinni!
Gravlax: We'll stay in orbit just in case. Glabbus jibbly!
«Scene: You on the island.»
«You»: Trinni?? My last tracking signal from her shows her being right here, but-- Uh oh... Company!
«You»: If Trinni's not on the surface, she must be--
«You»: --down below!
«You»: There you are!
Trinni: «You»! Sorry for leaving you up there. I fought several of them off but couldn't beat them all.
Trinni: I had to do my best to hide.
«You»: That's okay. I think we're safe now. The rest of the 74NKs are scrap metal now, and I managed to blow all of the bounty hunters to smithereens.
«You»: Let's head back to the surface and survey the damage...
«Scene: The island.»
Trinni: Well, the satellite dishes will take some time to repair, but not much else was damaged.
«You»: Don't worry-- I'll see if Gravlax can send an engineering crew down here to help out.
«You»: We'll find a way to make Lord Terror stop sending bounty hunters after you soon, I promise.
«You»: I think it's time you consider joining the Alteon's crew. We can permanently place some experts here to continue your work. If you're on the Alteon, you'll always be well-protected.
Trinni: I certainly appreciate the offer, but--
Trinni: What is it--?
«Trinni turns as a Marix bursts out of the water.»
«You»: It's another Marix Serpent!! They were all supposed to have been teleported off of Satiren!
Trinni: Even if just ONE of the baby serpents was missed, it would have grown that large by now. I definitely didn't need MORE problems right now...
«Scene zooms into the sky as Dark Madder's ship enters.»
«You»: NOW what!?!
«Scene zooms in on the ship as Dark Madder appears on it.»
Dark Madder: I was just passing through the neighborhood when your little party caught my attention...
Thank you so much for staying here and helping me fend off the bounty hunters. But now it looks like Dark Madder herself is after me for some reason...
All I can think of is that Lord Terror and Dark Madder must be involved with each other somehow. Unfortunately, I think we're going to find out for sure soon enough...
In the meantime, take one of my Laser Rods. I think you're going to need it!
