SG21 receives its first mission briefing from LtCol Louis Ferretti and MajGen George Hammond then proceed to the quartermaster for gearing up.
Getting equipped takes more time than it would for an experienced crew but the quartermaster is used to that. It’s not every day you gear up to visit a brand new world. The team cleaned them out of inertial compasses, however.
Once through the gate, an initial survey of the area around the gate is performed while base camp is setup. Base camp is quickly abandoned as the team heads out into the wilderness to find the ruins spotted by the UAV.
A break in the clouds reveals the team still has enough daylight to get a good head start. They continue for several hours before dark falls and camp is made. (Home away from home away from home.) There appears to be no moon so the watch has only the starlight that makes it through the canopy to see by. Luckily, more than one member brought the means to see in the dark.
The watch is ambushed by several large felines. Four of the five creatures are brought down with only minor injuries sustained by LTC Markus.
Experience gained: 300
