Splinter Faction And Assisting
Min-Joon activated the communicator on his desk, "Captain Ellis, this is Captain Kim. What are your orders."
Mystery activated her communicator "I want you to assist the people of Triangular only if you have to. We've not heard from Planet Astra and at this point we don't know which side is right. If either side fires on you return fire."
Min-Joon considered the Captain's instructions, then replied, "I will keep the Marines aboard Independence until you order us to the surface."
"Keep them ready as things can change in a matter of seconds," Mystery said "Send a couple of scouts down to see what is going on and have them report back,"
"Yes, Captain." Time to schedule impromptu cordon-and-search drills, Min-Joon thought. After the Captain terminated the comm-link, Min-Joon contacted Sergeant Hunt.
"Beta Squad will beam to the following coordinates on the planet Triangular and conduct reconnaissance to determine enemy strength, disposition, and deployment." He paused a moment, then continued, "Take Corporal Purcella with you as well."
