Aaaaahhhhh! Wake me up when it's time to move the ship then (provided we make it back without getting air/raft jacked)...

So, no air/raft-jacking.

Should get there about 1020L.

Donoma sends Wallis a message: "I should have a package arriving at the mine today or tomorrow. Can you send it out to the ship when it arrives? We'll be there in a jif. Thanks, sweetheart."

Default Donoma (1020L until ......)

Donoma will help however she can as we load the containers of metal. Probably with her mechanical skill - and general help. She suggests to Gayne that one of them might take the air/raft up to get a real high ground perspective for security.

She is packing her revolver in the shoulder holster (loaded with .454), as well as her compact in an ankle holster (and a couple of speedloaders in a pocket).

EDIT: She also suggests we not let more than two loaders within a certain radius of the ship, and only one inside (if that's how we load these things) at a time. She's also wondering though if the containers could be stacked around the ship like an old war-time revetment like she's seen on a world or two. What do Henry and Gayne think?

On the first one, probably need to discuss w Nero V also, as that would slow down loading.

On the second idea, I think I'd need to see a sketch or more explanation to understand your point. Y'know, eventually these containers all need to go inside the ship. I'm not sure I see the point of first arranging them around it like a wall, then loading them? Plus that would really slow down the loading!

Alfred awakes Doc, 'Sir, We are 30 minutes out from the mining area. You may want to get up and ready to help load.'

Doc stirs and takes a quick shower and puts on some work cloths. As he gets some coffee and grabs a quick bite to eat from the galley, he wonders what is going.

Entering the bridge as he is just finishing his coffee, 'What's up? And why did Alfred tell me to get ready to load some cargo?'

"Morning, Doc. We're putting down at the mine in a bit. We've got a lot of work in front of us to get that load in the ship. What's your job when we load cargo?"

Looking a bit amused in that sort of bad joke kind of way, 'Morning to you too. I see that you haven't familiarize yourself with everyone's position yet, Cargo Officer.
Turning to the Captain, 'And why wasn't this posted on the schedule? I would have gotten up a bit earlier.'

'Another thing, why does everyone seem be a bit rush and prepped this morning?'

"Morning Doc, Nero's getting antsy about getting his ores off this world and wanted an extra early start. And it could take a while since he has an awful lot of it."

"Plus, he has a lot of security down there packing heat, but he says he isn't expecting trouble, and it's just a precaution. Sooooo, we are mustering everyone who isn't handling the loading to stand to for our own security. If anything untoward happens we want to be ready to make sure we don't go down with Nero - but I don't want to leave him swinging either if we don't have to - I'm starting to warm to the guy", Concentrating on the controls Hampton slaps his holstered pistol without looking up from the controls and view of the distant landing pad, "You might want to get strapped Doc - in case get to get into a gunfight."

"The rush might be because we have about 200 containers to load and we want to be out of here before that new ship arrives. As to roles, no, I haven't had much of a chance, yet. I was just about to ask the captain if I would be of better use in here, monitoring sensors and backing up Henry and Gayne, or down there working locks and tying down containers."

(OOC) Unless I missed something the other ship doesn't arrive until the 17th - almost two days from now counting what's left from today.

So we should be able to get this all loaded well before the ship gets here (I'm more concerned about running into it on the way to the jump point but I'll burn that bridge when I come to it. And Donoma's flight plans will help a lot there)

So maybe Nero is expecting someone else might get here that the ship contacted after it jumped in. Or contacted the ship after he/she saw Nero's deal with us being put together? Industrial spying to keep the lanthanum trade locked up...who knows. I'm a paranoid guy.
