Briefly looking away from the Mi-Go Story says to Brook: "Brook, go ahead on inside and prepare to leave." Looking back at the Mi-Go he says: "I'm afraid there isn't the space for you. You can not be allowed access to the TARDIS...that is not open for negotiation."

Brook looks at Story and the others, catching the meaningful glances towards the fungicides. Nodding a little, she fishes out the key, answering Story. "Remember the borg...." She opens the TARDIS and steps inside.

The Mi-Go followed Brook to the TARDIS door, though it fell a short distance behind her. "Then one of you muzzzt go with the zzzergeant in hizzz zzzhip to make room for me," it buzzed. "You are not in a pozzzition to refuzzze." It continued towards the open TARDIS door.

Brook entered the familiar hexagonal TARDIS control room. The console rested in the center, the time rotor still.

Brook closes the door behind her, and moves over to the consoll, biting her lip. She'd never flown the TARDIS before, but looks at the controls, wondering where they should go.

Lucius was thinking of purple flowers on a green meadow to throw off any attempts at reading his mind - as his hand gripped around the hilt of his dagger tucked in the small of his back outside the space suit under its belt. He knew Story could tell he was ready for action. He said calmly, "I guess you'll have to escort me back to the other ships then, while these people prepare for departure. It is quite a lengthy process. One wrong calculation and you can end up fifty feet off the ground, or heaven forbid, inside solid rock."

Story steps between the Mi-Go and the TARDIS door looking at the Mi-Go. "I am in a position to refuse and I just did. You are not entering the TARDIS...this is nonnegotiable." Glancing over at Lucius than back at the Mi-Go all the while tightening his grip on the fungicide sprayer. In a firm voice Story says. "I wish you no harm but I am prepared to stop you."

Lucius was prepared to attack if the Mi-Go seemed to do anything even remotely offensive.

"The zzzergeant will ezzzcort you back," said the Mi-Go to Lucius. "He knowzzz thizzz bazzze." It then turned to face Story. "You are bluffing. Now I know you are up to zzzomething. When you enter, I will be right behind you. Do not try anything that would endanger your fellow humanzzz."

Heinrich's hand drifted closer to the butt of the pistol in his holster as he watched warily.

Brook easily found the control to close the TARDIS door and activated it, as she had seen it used several times. The doors swung shut. She could still see what was going on outside in the astrophysics lab on the scanner. However, she had no idea how to use the rest of the controls to operate the TARDIS. Sometimes it seemed as though Story didn't have much better idea of how to do it than she did.
OOC,[b]Story[/b], if you want to use the fungicide spray, you'll need to make a DEX x 5 roll. That will start combat. If that happens, [b]Lucius[/b] also gets to act before the Mi-Go, but [b]Elizabeth[/b] and [b]Heinrich[/b] will go afterwards.

ooc,Do these things have antenna? Also, can I roll insight to get a feel for how the other two are leaning in this fight?

OOC,Yes, they have antennae. Insight won't help you understand anything about the Mi-Go, as it's completely alien, but it could help you with [b]Heinrich[/b].

Insight - fail,[url=http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/view/3549628/]Insight - Heinrich (62%) (1d100=90)[/url]
Lucius waited for Story... he would not take action prior to that. "Strange that you'd be so trusting of Sergeant Heinrich. Why is that, exactly? My guess is that you know you can trust him because he is already under your power. Is that right?"

"There's one thing you should know Mi-Go...I'm not human." Story extends his arm towards the Mi-Go and squeezes the trigger on the fungicide sprayer.

The reaction was immediate. The Mi-Go let out a horrific high-pitched screech as it fell to the floor. It writhed briefly before lying still, its body already starting to decompose into a semiliquid goo.

"I'm so glad that actually worked!" said Heinrich, sighing with relief. "Go on, get out of here while the getting's good. I need to get to the docking bay before those other Mi-Go slaughter everyone!" He hurried out of the door and into the hall, unslinging his rifle as he ran.
Heinrich Kohl,"[b]Sergeant Kohl[/b], this is [b]Barrett[/b]," came the geologist's voice from his communicator. "How fares the escort?" [b]Sergeant Kohl[/b] replied on [b]Edward[/b]'s private channel. "[b]Story[/b] killed the Mi-Go when it insisted on boarding his vessel, sir. The fungicides work! Watch out for the ones in the docking bay. I'm on my way back."

Lucius approached the goo and wasted no time cutting off its antennae, then picked up the thing it was holding like a weapon - and anything else that looked like it might have been useful - before heading into the TARDIS.

OOC,[b]Lucius[/b], please roll Spot Hidden. The TARDIS door is currently locked, so either [b]Story[/b] or [b]Brook[/b] will need to open it before you can enter.

spot hidden - no such luck,[url=http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/view/3550751/]Spot Hidden (50%) (1d100=98)[/url]
ooc,Figured cutting the antenna off would delay me long enough for Story and Brook to get their stuff in order.

Lucius sliced off the antennae easily enough, but his search of the dead alien turned up nothing. He couldn't even find the weapon. Touching the disgusting thing sickened him and greatly distracted him.

Stepping back, Lucius looked down at the dissolving creature with disgust, "Where did that blasted weapon go? It was holding it a moment ago."

Seeing what's going on outside, Brook quickly opens the door to let the others in.

"Oh thank goodness that worked so effectively," says Elizabeth, breathing a huge sigh of relief. She looks at the alien goo with disgust, before walking into the TARDIS.
