    [I think descriptions of your girls in full gear would not go amiss.]


    The drone stays obediently behind. It will report any movement or other interesting development if you're within com range.
    The pair walk up hill toward the mountain where the sensor beckons. More of those flowers and a sparsely-growing rugged yellow grass dot the rocky landscape. The scanner had picked up a small source of radioactive material suitable for fuel right at the base of a cliff face. The cliff stretches far up, ledges and crags visible in its surface. It'll take some digging to get out.
    Now that they're far from the fog dissipating slowly around their ship they can see the brilliant blue sky above shimmering with a gentle aurora. It seems to be nearing evening.

    Astin has medium-length dirty blonde hair, just a shade light enough to qualify as not light brown, and wears glasses with golden-yellow rims on her rounded face. She sports a pretty trim figure, lithe with a minimum of trained muscle but in no way threatening underneath the green and black bodysuit that clings to her, providing armor and a degree of style.

    "Night already, huh?" Astin asked, glancing at the beautiful aurora shimmering above. Then she looked down at where the scanner was indicating the source of radioactive material. "I don't suppose you've got any tools good for digging? I don't think we should be using explosive charges or anything, but we have to get it out somehow."

    Stacy's long pink hair was clearly dyed, her natural color faded away due to being in bootleg cryo for so long before she was revived with no memories. Her face was sharply angled along with her features, giving her an almost alien appearance. She had a slender frame but was very muscular, not having much to do outside of jobs than train herself. Of course, none of that could be seen under her tanky suit, augmented to beef her up and hold her heavy duty mechandrites.

    Stacy seemed a little more on edge than the pilot; seeing those shapes moving in the distance sit right with her. "If it's getting that late, we'd better hurry up and get back. I don't wanna be caught in the open to any nocturnal predators..." Walking up to the wall, she ran her hand over it, noting the readings on the sensor. "Actually, I've got just the tool for the job." Considering she was being shipped to a mining colony to dig as well as play security, she'd equipped herself with an industrial grade rock breaker before coming. Pulling the bulky piece off of her suit, she attached it to her left arm, the device syncing up with her EVE and powering on. She'd look for the best place to start making fractures to do as little damage to the wall and still get out the material.

    [The tool bar on the ship would have been a great digging and mining tool.
    That sounds like a Mind + Science (geology) roll, +1 if you can borrow Astin's scanner.]

    Astin lends Stacy her scanner so that she can more precisely pinpoint the minerals, then takes many steps back, just to be safe.

    [Nice. Now give me a Vigor + Melee + 1 roll. Will Astin assist or watch?]

    [So a crit+2.]
    Stacy makes short work of the hard rock, her weapon cracking away layer after layer, and eventually uncovers a geode. Along the inside of the shell is a growth of green crystals, slightly luminescent and among them hovers a small shiny green bead that pops out a moment after the geode is cracked open.

    Stacy steps back, powering down her weapon and waving over Astin. "This is what your sensors are picking up, right?"

    Astin double-checks the scanner for good measure, then nods. "Yup, great job." Then she comes closer and attempts to pull the mineral up out of the ground so they can carry it back to the ship.

    [The little bead is what was showing up on the scanner.]
    As the pair are getting ready to leave Stacy feels a tingling at the back of her neck, a familiar sensation of danger even though her motion scanner is not detecting anything at the moment.

    Acting more on instinct than conscious thought, she grabs Astin in one arm and fires her arm-mounted grappling hook up into the cliffside, reeling them up off the ground, to a ledge if she can manage.

    As her companion's arm wrapped around her, Astin yet out a surprused yelp and felt herself fly through the air. "The hell is going on?!" She shouted, trying not to squirm lest she get dropped.

    The cliffside is indeed dotted with narrow ledges that cannot be seen too easily from below. A magnetic impulse sends a piton into the tough stone, digging in and allowing Stacy to pull herself and her friend up, powerful winch reeling in the strong and thin cable. Stacy's spidey sense keep flaring however and her motion scanner beeps once to indicate a fast-moving projectile above! A blur flashes by before the pair can react, sweeping through the space where they had been a moment ago before resolving into a winged shape. A feminine humanoid with featherless wings blue-grey skin and black hair glides in a half-circle before looking up at them with slitted yellow eyes. Whatever this is it can dive at formidable speeds. The pair notice that there are two more peeking down from the cliff far above.

    "Fucking shit, that thing almost had us'" Astin hissed, clinging more tightly to Stacy than before. "Oh god, and there's more... Maybe we can talk to them though?" As she' dragged along Astin calls out to the humanoids, "Hold on, we come in peace! We didn't mean to offend by trespassing, if you can understand me!"

    Stacy swings them about thirty feet up, not knowing where the threat was coming from, just that it was coming for them. Seeing that the creature came from above, she swung her arc back down to land on a lower ledge about ten feet up, where the pair could jump to the ground and have their suits absorb the impact without injury. "I wouldn't count on them knowing basic. Body language!" She stuck her arms into the air, mechandrites doing the same, doing her best to stand straight and still. However, she kept her eyes on the creature's shoulders, watching for a twitch, her scanner focused on the two above them. If any charged, she would try to grapple them with her power arms, where she'd be able to hit them point blank with the pile bunker still attached to her suit arm.

    [This would be a difficult combined Spirit+Manipulate roll. Both at -3.
    By the way the combat scanner is meant to be pretty hands-off. You can fiddle with it to adjust its scan types and check specific readings but it's not directional unless you modify it.]
