    "Roger that." Simon said over the Comm and then moved ahead of the squad to scout. "About 5...Gears? These guys have Gears? They're Calicos but less equipped than ours." Simon said and he headed back to the squad. "Spread out into a delta V formation, Richards, you're in front."

    "Roger that, sir."

    The invisible Gears moved silently in a zero-g environment. They moved into position, about two for each opposing Gear. In a synchronized movement, they executed the enemy Gears with silenced weapons. They scaveneged the weapons and hid the corpses behind their fallback point.

    Leo silently went and tapped each of his team members on the shoulder, signalling them to continue ahead. Simon took point again.

    "Nothing."

    The team arrived at the satellite. Everyone looked around, trying to find a way in that didn't involve the use of high explosives.

    "Codop, Richards, Smith. Find an entrance. Everyone, stay on your toes."

    Simon saw another corridor in the satellite and saw several Calicos and signaled that there were 10 of them. "We need to play it quiet, these ones could take a chunk of us out easily. Hug the walls everyone."

    "Smith, head outside and take up sniping position with your longrifle. Cover us."

    Smith silently nodded and turned around, drifting out into space and taking up position two kilometers right of the fallback point, in view of the corridor.

    Leo took point, sliding forward quietly, hugging the walls as Simon had advised. His Calico pulled out what looked to be a larger version of his personal rifle, complete with silencer. Leo snuck up to the very back of an enemy Calico who's one mistake was to be facing the wrong way. Leo silently pulled the trigger once and lodged a silenced round into the back of the Gear's head, killing its pilot.

    Simon crept up behind a Calico Gear and pumped his silenced plasma gun into it's engine, disabling the Gear. He motioned the squad foreward into the next corridor. "According to the map, two rooms to go"

    ((Just wondering, how big are these new Gears? The orginals were designed to be slightly larger than the VALHALLA Mk. XI suits.))

    "Smith, how is it going outside?"

    "Good so far. I've seen a regular patrol moving outside, so you'll have to be careful on extraction."

    Leo motioned the team forward, silently avoiding the enemy. At a doorway, Leo planted the palm of his suit on the access panel.

    "Crack it and hack it, Tex."

    "Righto, Psycho."

    "That's 'Blackest Angel' now. And cut the chatter."

    Tex made an acknowledgement beep on the Gear's sound speakers and hacked her way into the satellite. The doorway opened and the team slipped in. Tex stayed inside the satellite's systems, ready to mess with its electronics.

    ((About the size of a small building, thats the way I originally made them but someone got it confused and y'all downsized em.))

    Simon's Flamer was a little damaged from just being attacked by two Calicos which he vaproized quickly. His Gear's right arm was damaged and red warning lights flashed in his cockpit. He continued onward anyway and eventually the group got to the final door to where Sergeant Rust was.

    "Right, ladies. This is the moment of Truth. This guy's gear is twice the size of ours and he's got an anti-Gear bazooka on his shoulder. Surround him and give him hell. FOR DREAM MAKER!!!" He shouted as Tek opened the door. The whole squad ran in and a MASSIVE Gear stood infront of them with four Calico guards.

    "Ignore the minows. Go for the pike." Simon said with some fishing humor. His voice was a bit shaky though. He charged foreward and started pummeling hot plasma at the massive Phantom Class Gear.

    "F*ck, Codop. So much for covert ops."

    Leo, still cloaked, climbed up the wall of the hangar and took up a good overhead position wiht two other Calicos. The Flamers stayed on the ground, their weapons suited more to close combat. Leo took aim using his Calico's zoom function and his silenced rifle opened up. Gunfire pattered across one of the Calicos, decimating its engine. Smith opened up on the radio.

    "Sir, seems like some sh!t's goin' on. The patrols are moving back in."

    "Take 'em out."

    "Roger that."

    Outside, Smith covered one of his targets with his beam rifle. It was in the back and no one would miss 'em. Smith pulled the trigger, blowing a nice hole into the Gear's head. Smith quickly shifted his rifle over and fired again. Dropping from cover, Smith cloaked and moved to a different position as his gun's barrel cooled.

    Rust's anti-Gear bazooka shell hit Simon's gear square in the chest. He was sent flying backwards and landed on the ground. Red warning lights flashed from every part of the Gear save for the head and right leg. Rust pumped another shot at Simon, blowing off his left leg completely.

    Leg Destroyed. a mechanical male voice said monotonously.
    Arm Damaged
    Arm Damaged
    Leg Damaged
    Torso Damaged
    It said. Simon slammed his fist on the controls. "Leo! I'm paralysed. Kill the bastard!"

    Meanwhile, Richards and Keith were holding off three Calicos. Their rifles blasting the enemy Gears with peppered shots of steel. Keith took a Flamer's plasma shot to the head, blowing off the cockpit. Dead. Richards hailed the others "Kuso. Keith's down. Backup please!

    Leo nonchalantly leapt down in his Calico, unloading a full clip as he rolled off his ledge, the rounds destroying a Calico. Dodging gunfire with unnatural speed in his Calico, Leo whipped over to Simon, shielding him from gunfire with his own mech.

    "Simon, eject!"

    Popping out his spent clip and slapping in a fresh one, Leo stood his Calico up, unloading precise gunfire into the cockpit of another Calico.

    Meanwhile, on the ledge, Leo's backup opened fire, covering him and Richards.

    "Hey ladies, move! We gotta take down that bigass motherfscker!"

    And then the lights went out. The cloaked Calcios were invisible, their silenced barrels making nary a sound. One Calico, the one that Leo didn't take down, continued to fire on Simon, his gunfire pattering across the back of Leo's Calico.

    "Warning. Minor hull breach. Warning."

    A red light light up Leo's HUD, indicating that the engine housing on his back had several minor cracks. His left arm was damaged, moving slggusihly. Luckily, both his legs had suffered only minor damage and were still functioning at 94%.

    "Simon, move your ass!"

    Simon banged on the controls and eventually found the sub eject button. The main eject port was blocked (since the Gear is on it's back) and he hopped out of the opened panel at the front. He had his minigun and SADAR with him so he wasn't completely useless. He snuck up behind Rust's Gear and fired two SADAR, anti-Gear missles, one to the Engine, one to the head. Both blew apart with a mechanical whine and then the massive Gear tumbled to the ground with a large thud.

    "Yeeeehaaw! We got him chief! Let's go home." Simon whooped over the comm.

    "Enemy threat destroyed." Richards sighed with relief.

    "Alright. Pick up whatever we left behind. We can't leave behind any traces of our being here."

    Leo walked over to one of the downed Marine Calicos, popping open the 'pit and retrieving the corpse.

    When the crew reached the Desert Sword, the marines got a debriefing by the Admiral and then headed to their liesure time activities. Simon went to his and Divinia's quarters so he could check up on her and the baby.

    Leo turned in his collected dogtags, as was the duty of Squad Leader. He walked off to the showers to clean up.

    ((OMG! Short postiez! Hehe.))

    After visiting his wife, Simon headed to Admiral Codop's quarters and knocked on the door. His father's gruff voice came out "It's open." and Simon walked in and saluted and his father returned the salute. "Sit down, son. What's on your mind?" his father asked.

    "I'm curious, what are we going to do now that DREAM MAKER is abolished?" Simon asked, lighting up a cigar and puffing on it. "What will become of us?"

    "You are all being transferred to a desert warfare/riot control Gear squadron. We are calling it the 4th Deserth Sword. All remaining members of DREAM MAKER will be issued the uniform of desert Gear Jockeys."

    "And, we've recieved a faint transmission from a 1st Minutemen battlecruiser. It's from Kate's squad." Codop said with the faintest trace of a smile on his face.

    "Kate!? How? She was supposed to be dead!"

    "Secret assignment, son. She had to do some recon work for us and thus, faked her own death. Why do you think the coffin was empty?"

    "Leo will be going without question, you understand."

    "Yea, he'll do whatever it takes to get her back. Get him in here, this assignment isn't to be on record."

    Simon ran out and looked for Leo, whom was just done changing after a shower. "LEO! Admiral's room! Now!"

    ((Heh... I never really planned for that. But oh well. I don't mind. :D))

    Leo, his face set in stone (like always), walked to the Admiral's room at his normal pace. He saluted the Admiral.

    "Sir! Reporting as requested, sir!"

    Codop returned the salute. "At ease, Major. I have some good news for you. We have picked up a transmission from Kate, she's on a Minutemen battlecruiser in the cargo hold, prisoner. She faked her death so she could go on this assignment before you ask and yes, you can go with Simon to rescue her. We have another operative in there as well, named Corporal Christopher Kelley and his strike force of flamer Gears. Your mission is to be swift, silent and secret. Your objectives are simple. rendezvous with Kelley, rescue Kate and her squad and eliminate Captain Ratchet. Are your objectives clear?"

    Both Simon and Leo shout "Sir yes sir!", Leo with a little more enthusiasm than Simon.

    Leo walked out of the room, even quieter than usual.

    "So she's alive?... Goddamnit."

    Simon abruptly slapped Leo on the back, happy and thinking Leo was happy too.

    "Alright! Time to go save your damsel in distress, eh?"

    Leo looked at Simon with unsettlingly sad eyes.

    "It's been two years, Simon. I won't know her as the same person that saved our asses back in that hellhole."

    Leo continued walking for a short ways, and then turned to look back at Simon.

    "When do we leave?"

    "We'll leave ASAP. Take Kieth, Ricardo and Richards with us."

    Simon suited up in his Mark XI armor and then his Flamer Gear and headed towards the launch bay for the dropships. The dropships had enough fuel to get them there and back with an emergency landing that was how far the battlecruiser was.

    When they entered the steel corridors of the battlecruiser, the Gears disembarked and headed to a fork in the road.

    "I'm getting a signal from two directions. One down that hall, I assume it's Corporal Kelley because it's closer and the other far to the back. What are your orders, chief?"

    ((Lookin' good! Only, his bangs are longer, and there's more gold in his hair.))

    Leo slapped Simon, Kieth, and Ricardo on the shoulder, then pointing down the long hall. Motioning with his hand, Leo had Richards follow him down the shorter hall.

    "Alright gentlemen, we're feet dry. Operational radio silence. Stick to hand signals."
