Crowd Control: Side Mission-Recruitment
Date of Scene: 04 May 2020
Location: Hikari Seaport
Synopsis: Shigure summons Leyanne and Kotone to talk about a certain initiative she's creating.
Cast of Characters: Shigure, Leyanne Mace, Kotone Yamakawa

Shigure has posed:
    Messages have been sent to Kotone and Leyanne to meet Shigure at Hikari's Arsenal Dockyard. It's a place of metalcraft, stinking of forged iron, welded steel and spilled lubricant. Sounds of hammers rings out across the water in a constant undertone, coupled with whistles, warning klaxons and shouts of various workmen as they work on modifying Kanmusu equipment with resources acquired by allies and field patrols.

    Shigure is sat behind a desk, going through dossiers and referencing blueprints when she's located, hair done up in a tight workers bun instead of the usual braid, her uniform swapped out for a set of robust safety orange coveralls, stained with grease.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne never misses an excuse to get oily and investigate new equipment and machinery, so she too has been helping out. She's wearing sandy pinkish-red coveralls of her own - camouflage on mars, but plenty visible here. Stained with oil and grease, her ponytail rolled up into a bun not dissimilar to Shigure's, the mouse practically bounces into Shigure's office, completely forgetting to duck on the way through the door. It's quite an impressive THUMP as forehead meets doorframe, hard enough that some of the equipment on Shigure's desk jumps slightly, and the large torque wrench in Tiny's left hand drops free and bounces into the room. Sharp ears will pick up a faintly metallic clang along with the thump.

Tiny is, of course, planted quite firmly on her backside. "Mother puss-bucket..."

Kotone Yamakawa has posed:
Kotone Yamakawa had picked up the message from Shigure and was more than happy to respond, she had grabbed something to eat on the way in and was just finishing it off as she tracked down her friend. It was funny though why did the Cyborg lady eat so much and be a total foodie? Who knows what is known is she was eager to get to work from the look of her face as she arrived at the desc.

"Hey Shigure, Tiny? Do I smell a project of some sort?"

Kotone is almost vibrating from the look on her face. She seems very eager for what might be about to start.

Shigure has posed:
    Shigure doesn't look up from her desk immediately. She's likely used to the taller ships forgetting these doors are built closer to human-standard, not gigantism. She does offer a dry quip in her usual soft near-monotone voice. "... mind the doorframe." She reaches down as the wrench hits her foot, the metal tool clanking lightly against the metal frame on her 'hull boot'. Straightening in her seat she set the tool on the desk alongside the other few trinkets, gizmos and gadgets she's acquired from people being a little careless around her workspace. "Tiny." she finally says, looking up and folding her hands over her stack of paperwork. "I called you here because I'm setting up an initiative. This is something I've been looking into for a while, but Engagement: First Strike made it clear this needs to be fast tracked, else the Hikari Fleet and all other Kanmusu organizations will be put in the unenviable position of being underequipped to continue fighting the Abyssal Fleet on equal footing."

    She's of course referring to the modified Abyssals, and the New Class destroyer encountered during the opening engagement at the Malacca Strait.

    When Kotone arrives, the destroyer nods in greeting. "Yamakawa, I was just about to explain. I'm creating an initiative. A group of outside minds to the Fleet. Fresh ideas and the drive to put them into action." she gestures to the scene outside. "We are stuck in 1944, few new ideas come from our own kind, and it's beginning to show."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne nods "Low bridge." She agrees, picking herself back up to listen to Shigure. She nods. "Interesting. Yeah I can definitely help with that, I'm pretty familiar with most types of engine technology and I'm starting to experiment with hyperglass from the Line. I can definitely help in the propulsion department... I'm also pretty familiar with heavy weapons from across the multiverse, I can probably tell you which ones would be good for close-in weapons..." She looks to Kotone, to see what ideas she's got.

Kotone Yamakawa has posed:
Kotone Yamakawa says "Most of the ships of that era were cutting edge for the time but, as you say things have moved on. So you want our help to better develop new rigging for the fleet I would take it?" She grins for a moment "I'd be happy to help with this project I owe the fleet a lot as it is." She looks over to Leyanne for a moment nodding "I can help with some of the mechanical work and any computer systems though my main area of skill is on things like cars and the like. I can, however, help with other concepts such as stealth and the like."

Shigure has posed:
    "Excellent. I don't only want you to help with your own expertise, but look for others who can bring something to the table as well. Weapons tech, including targetting systems. Defensive measures, such as armour or even deflector shielding. The Fleet has encountered a lot in our time in the Multiverse, but noone has really looked into making any of it our own." Shigure pushes the dossiers out. "The Warlock, from Evangeline's world. Armiger Princess. The Star Hawk, it's Anti-Wireless Railgun and missile systems. Busou Shinki and their modular armour system... the list goes on, I have dozens of these dossiers."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne nods "There's a dude I know, he's Concord but he's OK and he's all about interesting tech, have you heard of Staren? He can probably help out quite a bit, he's got all sorts of interesting shit to look at."

Kotone Yamakawa has posed:
Kotone Yamakawa grins "We might even be able to hit up some of the warship production companies on my world. Given the focus we have on E-warfare and stealth might be of use to you."

With Kotone's stealth gear being a very well known thing to the Fleet at this point it could be interesting to look into that. "I getcha hit up the contact network and see who we can find for this project. Never thought I'd be helping to tune up friends like this." She looks to Leyanne for a moment.

"Whatcha think Tiny? I think this will be a fun project."

Shigure has posed:
    "I am familiar with Staren. He owns the Star Hawk, after all. He was a Union member, before the reality quakes... I've not spoken to him for a long while now. I hear he's doing well for himself." Shigure nods briefly. "Thank you both. Please, ask Staren to contact me at his earliest convenience, and forward your contact list to the project database." she says, standing and bowing politely. "I need to get back to work. Take care, both of you."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne nods to Ko "Oh yeah. There's a couple of folks here who would really benefit from the gas turbine and hyperglass treatment I gave Thumper, for a start."
