    Sci Fi Beyond the Final Frontier (1x1 with PendragonXeno94)

    Mid evening, a rather lovely and shapely woman dressed in a long black space trench coat, visor glasses, and somewhat wild fiery hair, was sitting at the bar of the Gamma Epsilon Space station, nursing a glass of whiskey.

    This woman, however, was no ordinary woman, but the highly decorated Wyld Fyre, Captain of the Star Lancer, Commanding Officer of the Wraith Corps of the First Earth Federation, veteran of the first and second Space Wars. She was nursing her whiskey as she was growing bored. During her last frigate run, which they thought was going to be a milk run, they ran across an infamous band of Space Pirates, who had taken a large chunk of her crew, and her a number of her ship's parts were now missing or damaged to the point that she was grounded until she could find a good mechanic.

    As she nursed her glass of whiskey, she scanned the area around her in the bar, trying to see if there were any prospective new crew members, or better yet, a ship mechanic who could work on her ship for her.

    Argo had just slipped into the bar of the Gamma Epsilon space station after a long day at the port, replacing and repairing various frigates and cruisers. His light magenta features was splotched with oil and dirt, his white eyes scanning the room. Patting the face mask on his hip, he downed a shot of bourbon, nearly gagging from the taste of it. He also adjusted his green and white hood to conceal his dark hair.

    Before long, he was glancing around the bar, eyeing one or two women that walked past him. He let his eyes trail up and down another woman's figure, noticing how low cut her dress was and that she was going from table to table with any man there. He watched her come to sit at his table, grabbing his hand and fixing her hair, frowning from his pulling away from her.

    "Ass," she muttered, turning away and moving to another table with a burly Varisonian and his three buddies.

    Shaking his head, Argo cursed to himself, taking another shot of bourbon, trying his best not to gag on it. "Why did I order two shots of bourbon?" he sighed.

    Wyld couldn't help but notice the woman fussing over the lone alien who looked like he was a mechanic. With a chuckle and a shake of her head, she glides over to him, "Don't worry about her mate, she's a regular here and does it to every single guy, though you're not the first to pull away from her, and you're lucky you did" she says, sliding in to the seat on the opposite side of the table "She's what we call a credit shark. She'll get you to buy her drink after drink, pretend to be drunk enough to follow you to bed, then when you're fast asleep, slice into your credits, steal them and then disappear without a trace" she says, sipping on her whiskey "Definitely not an honest trade" she says then looks at him.

    "Where are my manners, name's Captain Wyld Fyre, I'll spare you the spiel and get straight to the point, you look like a man who knows his way around a cruiser, and then some. A man who can fix the things that are wrong and can do so professionally." she says with a smile "And it just so happens that my ship is grounded and needs a fixing" she says, still sipping on the same glass. "Now, if you do agree for me, while you will be directly working for me, you will be under contract by the Earth Federation, and trust me, they pay really well." she says and finishes her whiskey, then orders a fireball.

    "I see. I wouldn't have wanted to hang around her anyway." Argo could have lived without knowing that the woman scammed men out of credits, but at least he knew that his income was safe. Listening to what the woman had to say as she pulled up to sit opposite of him. "Forgive me, I haven't really had time to get out of work for a couple years." Shrugging, he moved the empty shot glass in his hand for a moment. Before he could introduce himself, the woman went on about how she needed a mechanic and she's grounded for a while and she worked for the Earth Federation.

    He paused, taking a deep breath. His planet was already recovering from a devastating plague and were looking to humans to help restrengthen numbers, and yet the Earth Federation was yet to know about the arrangement. "Well, I guess I could, but I want to know what's in it for me before I can agree to anything."

    The captain tented her fingers in thought and smiles "Well you see, the Earth Federation can offer you high, steady pay, danger pay, all of your equipment, gear etc will be provided to you by the Earth Federation, at the Earth Federation's expense, along with your pay from the Earth Federation, you will get an extra pay check from me as part of my crew" she starts explaining. "You will get your own chambers in the Star Lancer, free range within the kitchen, hazard pay, and should you be injured while at work, you will get worker's compensation, which means for the time you are off work, you will still get paid." she continues and then finishes with "You work is contracted, and certified" she says, drinking her Fireball and smiles, "even though I'm a freelance pilot these days, if the Feds call on me, I answer" she chuckles "Which means you too"

    "Well, I appreciate the offer, but I'm afraid I might not be able to do that for you," he told her, rubbing his eyes and ordering a stein chalice of pale ale. "You see..." He gestured to his upper leg. "I used to pilot for Varison before there was bad pirate raid. So unless the pay is good enough, I can't do that for you." As his next drink came, he began to sip at it, eyeing the woman as he waited for her response.

    Wyld smiles "Well it's all relative to what you think is a good pay. For example, I would pay you a hourly rate of 500 creds, for whenever you are doing a job, and the Federation would pay a thousand creds per hour while you're on a job fixing the ship. On any given freelance mission, pay is split as evenly as possible. And even for what are simple frigate run escorts, base pay is like 100 thousand creds all up, and it depends on the size of our crew on how much each member gets, then there's the Federation missions who pay up a million creds plus per mission, plus the hazard and danger pays, and then there's the medical benefits and such" she says with a chuckle then fishes around in her pack and brings out a contract "Here, this outlines everything you want and need to know about working with me and for the Federation"

    Sipping at his pale ale some more, Argo pulled the contract towards him and began to read it over. He nodded, skimming through it and drinking in whatever Wyld told him. "Tempting..." He felt the woman from earlier rub his shoulders as he neared the bottom of the contract.

    "You sure you don't want to share a drink with me?" she asked sweetly.

    "No thanks," he replied. "I'm with my girl friend."

    "Hmph. Suit yourself."

    Hearing the woman walk away, he looked up at Wyld. "Sorry 'bout that," he told her. "I didn't mean an actual girlfriend..."

    Wyld just chuckles "Oh it's quite alright, I was quite ready to act the whole girlfriend role should it have come to that" she says and then shakes her head, her hand moving slowly to her blaster's holster, and her trigger finger twitching a little "I wonder if anyone will miss her?" she ponders out loud.

    She then looks to him and chuckles "So how about it? We could always do one of those trial things, and if things work out, then we can talk about the contract more" she suggests, watching as the cred shark moves onto a group of seasoned star mercenaries and she smirks "She's in for a rough time, these guys won't take her antics well" she says as one of them, who happened to be the leader, gets up, and knocks on her the back of her head "You're going fetch us quite a nice price" he growls, putting her unconscious body over his shoulder, winks at and salutes Wyld before the rest of his crew follow him.

    "Well she won't be bothering anyone anymore" she says and then looks to Argo, "So what do you say?"

    Argo could feel his cheeks heat up from Wyld's response. He opened his mouth before he witnessed the woman getting hit over the head by the apparent leader of a group of mercenaries. Looking at Wyld wide-eyed, he almost dropped his pale ale. "You're not going to do anything?" he asked.

    Before he said anything else, he thought over what she had said prior to witnessing a woman practically getting kidnapped and nobody batting an eye about it. "Sure... we can do a trial thing."
