Even as the last of the group passes through the Ground Bridge, a thunderous voice seemed to erupt from out of the back of the entry hall.
"FOOLS! Your greed has only untethered your destruction!"

Once back in the "control center", the first thing that the group would notice is that the giant sphere was displaying a greater number and variety of symbols and images, as well as cycling through them at a markedly increased speed. While a few things had shifted around along the edges of the room, it was mostly unaltered, and nothing seemed to be changing.

After the group had all gotten through and clear, the Ground Bridge closed, and Ravage disconnected and transformed back into his robotic panther form. Quint was still apparently monitoring data from the ring. A number of extra symbols and images flashed across the section of the sphere that faced the group. Meanwhile, Victor's armor suit was reentering the room from the direction that he'd headed in earlier.

((For the bellowed voice... Imagine the line being delivered by the former pro wrestler known as "The Ultimate Warrior".))

Once back in the control room, Siphon looked over at Ravage, shaking his head.

"OK, I think I'm starting to put two and two together here. But ... just how damn big man?"

As if responding to Siphon's quesiton, the sphere rapidly displayed a number of symbols and images, seeming directed at him.

Meanwhile, Victor's armor disengaged and transformed back into it's stored state, with Victor himself grabbing a pair of items from it and stowing them, almost like weapons. He also spoke up. "Probably better use your avatar. I think I'm the only one here that knows how to cityspeak... Although how I know that..."

Apparently, he'd been addressing the sphere, as the patterns of images and symbols on the sphere returned to its previous state, and the air in-between the ring and Siphon flicker, rippled, and then solidified into a dark-skinned human male in what appeared to be some manner of military uniform, who spoke up in a deep voice. "Ah, yes... I did forget that, didn't I? As to your question... The entire facility is my body, so quite large."

((Lauter's holomatter avatar is patterned off of General James Solomon, so that will give an idea of how he looks and normally sounds.))

Siphon paused as he listened to the hologram avatar, nodding his head slightly.

"Yeah, just a little on the above average size for what I've seen before."

He chuckled slightly.

"Boy, Baal and his troops really didn't think things through."


Aya meanwhile blinked slightly, finally realizing what the place was only now.

"Just how long have you been here?"

Siphon shook his head slightly.

Lauter's avatar stretched slightly. "I was in stasis lock for much of it, so I can't say for certain... But I'm fairly certain it should probably be measured in epochal terms."

Meanwhile, Victor was working on one of the terminals... And chuckled about something. Then he spoke up. "I'll have the bridge ready to go back over to the Nasara in a moment... Might want to review things when you get back over."

The avatar shook his head slightly, then added, "Stand by... I will be shifting again soon."

Siphon nodded in response to Victor, seeming to just be taking everything in.

Juliara meanwhile shook her head.

"It's amazing no one else discovered you before now, or your city form at least, if it's been that long. Stasis lock though? Something similar to our own stasis I wonder?"

She'd explain how the Ancient Stasis worked if needed to him to allow him to better answer.


Meanwhile Siphon chuckled slightly.

"Actually not all that surprising. No power emissions, or at least none detectable. There's barely any resources in the crust of the planet, nor is it the most hospitable atmosphere outside. Survivable sure, but not to the point of being interesting enough to explore in most cases. Even though the planet is within Gou'ald territories, there simply wasn't anything here that they could see that would have drawn them to this planet, no reason to come down. Until now."

He frowned slightly, then added, "which is why I'm puzzled why dipshit was here. I can understand when your 'cloak' dropped being detected but ... he'd have to have already been in this solar system or within a few light years already to have even detected anything. Gou'ald sensor systems aren't that powerful to detect much more than five light years away, even if it was a major power surge. Which means he was nearby in the area already, in territory that used to be Cronus'. He also had a large fleet with him. Well, large for a Gou'ald in disgrace anyway. Even if he were scouting for supplies and technology left by Cronus, there'd be no reason to commit that many ships to a scavenger run. So why was he close enough with so many ships? We're missing something, and I don't think I like the prospect there may have been something else he was around here for and just jumped at an opportunity he saw. Victor, you've been around here longer with Ravage, can you think of anything that might have had him around here with that many ships before you even dropped the cloak?"

Lauter responded, "The stasis lock, for us, is essentially a paralytic coma. We can't move or shift, and our consciousness is... impaired at best. Often times, we are completely unaware. As for not discovering me... My holomatter screens still functioned. When all that can be detected are mountains, who would think that a living colony ship is there?"

Ravage replied to Siphon's questioning, as well, "Turdnugget was looking for something... Hidden science base of some kind, judging by what I could pick up from his comm-traffic. We definitely weren't it, but he apparently couldn't pass up the chance for a new fortress once the fields dropped."

Meanwhile, Victor started working on what could be guessed as the controls for the Bridging technology.

Lilith's doing her level best to follow the conversation, picking up the important parts, anyway. "So either this Baal was expecting trouble or he was expecting a large-scale excavation. Maybe a little of both. At least you've managed to distract him from his original purpose and, from the sound of things, you've severely cut his resources, which hopefully means he's going to bug out and we'll be free to look for whatever he came here for while he's recouping his losses?" The last part is decidedly a question, though from the banter between the two men, whatever's there is likely too important to ignore. "Maybe we can pool knowledge and narrow down the search radius. What can you tell us about Cronus?"

"And Baal for that matter," James adds. "We got a little cut short when our friends decided to come and play. Maybe we can figure out what they'd both be after around here."

Aya sighed slightly.

"Well that makes sense Lauter, but I don't like the fact you picked up he was looking for a science base. If it's one of ours, or an Asgard one ... we definitely don't want him getting his hands on it. From what I know of him, he likely would find a way to make the place work."


Siphon nodded.

"Most likely yes. As for your questions Lilith and James ... I'll give you the abridged version. The Gou'ald used to take hosts by force. The Gou'ald itself is a parasitical symbiote. Unfortunately a very intelligent one as well, though primarily they would scavenge for technology. Cronus was one of the old system lords, from before the majority of the Gou'ald did away with the old ways and became more like the Tokra. Cronus was old and powerful, one of the seven strongest Gou'ald for centuries. He used to control the territory around this sector, ruled with an iron fist. He was killed a number of years ago by one of Earth's first teams to use their Stargate."

He paused for a moment, looking over towards Jack, and, seemingly trying to anticipate a reaction or question from her, he added, "and no Jack. There are major differences between the Gou'ald and the Tokra. While the same species, the Tokra were founded on the idea of a true symbiotic relationship, refusing to take an unwilling host, even to the point of allowing themselves to die rather than be with an unwilling host. For thousands of years they opposed the Gou'ald, systematically trying to overthrow them and free the enslaved populations, including the Jaffa who were their servants. Eventually, they managed it, though the Replicators and the Ori had their fair share of ... input in it all. And as for myself ... Talvesh is a different being altogether. Suffice it to say his species originally started as a potential genetic enhancement for one of our allied species, only they misjudged and the symbiotes became sentient. The two species were able to broker a mutual agreement that stood until the destruction of their homeworld. Talvesh, the one you spoke with earlier ... is the last of his kind. I took him in willingly when his previous host was betrayed and murdered. The original idea was to bring him home to reveal all that had happened, vital intel, but we ... had an accident. Suffice it to say it was an electrical discharge that fused our nervous systems together. Quite literally, neither of us would live more than a few hours without the other, if even that long."

He sighed, figuring it might explain a few things, but also knowing based on the reaction earlier, it probably would do little to soothe her 'disgust'.

"Baal on the other hand ... he can't make up his mind if he's going to follow the new system lord rules or not. He's smart enough normally to avoid doing anything stupid enough to draw fury, though personally I think he's been shown far too much leeway. Unfortunately, he's extremely smart with technology. He once figured out how to cause the entire stargate network to shut down when Earth tried to shut his own gate down with a virus. Ironically, he was also a vital part in stopping the replicator incursion to this galaxy, he figured out how to make all the Stargates dial at once in the entire galaxy. He's got access to at least some advanced technology, we know he's acquired Asgard beaming technology, and rumor has it he may have once been working with, or had some form of relationship with Nirrti."

Aya groaned.

"I think I might be sick after hearing that."

He nodded slightly.

"That's about how I felt when I read that report. Unfortunately, this could mean this hidden base might have once been one of hers. If that's the case, it's imperative we do not let him find it. I really don't want to see if he can figure out Nirrti's genetic experiments and continue them. Anyway, at last report, Baal had a rather sizeable fleet for a non aligned Gou'ald. There was a sizeable chunk of it here, so we definitely, or rather I should say Lauter's defenses did a good job of setting him back a while. He'll withdraw for now until he can recollect his forces, but it's a safe bet to say he'll be back sooner or later. And next time, he'll probably bring some of the left over Kull warriors from when he allied with Anubis. I'll rig up something for your weapons James so that if we encounter them, you'll be able to fight them effectively. The Kull warriors have a form of energy dampening armor on them, makes them completely impervious to normal weaponry, even bullets. They're also a bit too close to being undead for my liking."
