Zavala: Fireteam; an urgent matter requires my attention. Hawthorne has volunteered to handle your strike on this end. Cayde-6: wait, are they going after the weapons guy? You said I could do that one! Zavala: I lied. Good luck Fireteam. Ghost: What are those Cabal doing out there? We need to get past this security door. @pirate_dani https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vNz9giZAi3XtiFaVO3MLyY1BmDTuK2K0
Zavala: The target is Baracus Zhan. Weapons dealer to the Red Legion. Can I help you, Cayde? Cayde-6: Ikora said she needed you! Don’t worry. I got this one. Hawthorne: I’ll keep an eye on it, no problem. Zavala: Be brave fireteam. @pirate_Dani https://drive.google.com/open?id=1p9Dc3RBPJ5y9A2v4m8aJgEMV7xq1WCE7
Zavala: Time for me to step out. Cayde, I leave it to you.
Cayde-6: OK, fireteam: there’s a lot to cover as your official operative in the strike against Bracus Zahn, so we’d better get started. Item the first–
Hawthorne: Strike’s been started for a while.
Cayde-6: …Huh.
@Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hYZ4v73Q2ArDQV_RAF7xVtv7Rf5awECj
Zavala: Into the action right away. I’m not surprised. Cayde, you’re up.
Cayde: Whoa, wait wait wait, I’m not ready! I had a whole thing for this Zahn guy - I had charts and pictures - you know what, the one time I get it all - geez, forget it. You know what, just forget it.
@DrJazzyBebop https://drive.google.com/open?id=19DwVFisd2LeVBbXhNywcYZ0D60NOPJZv
Zavala: Bracus Zahn’s days of supplying weapons to the Red Legion will soon be over. Fireteam, I’m leaving Operation Forge in the hands of Suraya Hawthorne. Also, Cayde will be there… Good luck. @DrJazzyBebop https://drive.google.com/open?id=1rMSX7JA05y3ouLTYVTkbY9LYefIT7-n6
Ghost: Usually for an operation like this, Zavala provides logistical support. But it sounds like it’s just us this time around.
Cayde-6: Hawthorne, where’d you put my datapad? It had the notes about that thing I’m in charge of.
Hawthorne: You mean the Bracus Zahn strike that’s already running? Off to a great start, Mr. Vanguard.

Ghost: What are those Cabal doing out there? We need to get past this security door. @Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=11vgxnPrIKJqKyb6srCKWmsNJXPdqTPPM
Ghost: All the paths to the rest of the base are shut tight. But get me to a console, and I’ll take care of that. @Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Vb2baPfZX3cd6eVEPkPmw4fdgLvthlJW
Ghost: We need to get further into the base. If I can access their network… @Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lk2GnqCQgayWVDQGIaitCcpKMzObWtTK
Ghost: No more enemies in here. There are plenty outside, though. Get me to a console, and we’ll get out there. @pirate_dani link pending

**The Guardian sends the Ghost to hack a console. While attempting to open the security door, the Ghost triggers a failsafe.

Ghost: Uh… turns out Zahn’s network is different from the Red Legion’s. Cayde-6: Good different or bad different? Hawthorne: Did I just see a FLARE shoot into the sky? Ghost: Look, let’s not get into what might have shot into the sky and which enemy just summoned a bunch of reinforcements. Hawthorne: He sounds like you. Cayde-6: Aww… Thank you! @pirate_dani https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DukqP4rYqYliPhvbBc8NB6HIeY5_DdBN
Ghost: I think they were waiting for us this time.
Hawthorne: Sometimes the best way to spring a trap… is to spring the trap.
Cayde-6: Alternatively, don’t be there when it springs.
Ghost: We’ll have to try that next time!
@Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=17l3X3XdBufUqKcfKD7i0phD7wVYKuJuZ
Ghost: Door’s unlocked. But I couldn’t get through without tripping their master alarm.
Hawthorne: Not a trade I would have made, but you’re the one on the ground.
Cayde-6: Come on, how bad could one little alarm be?
Ghost: Very bad.
@Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1SlgS-MJplCQsL8QG_p7OGhQBlPCsK48_
Cayde-6: Did you shoot up a flare? I thought we weren’t allowed to have flares anymore after I… had nothing to do with why we’re not allowed to have flares.
Ghost: It wasn’t us! They must have detected me in their network.
Hawthorne: Then I’d get ready for reinforcements. A lot of reinforcements.
@Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=16s99xy8uoIk6odhJgcYj8hutPWr2a93y
Ghost: We’re through. And I made things more exciting.
Cayde-6: Don’t sound so down, little guy. Fireteams are built for excitement!

**A Cabal transport ship appears, picking up a nearby tank.

Ghost: That tank just exposed a solar fuel cell. @pirate_dani https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LmsSvj6JT95fLFiLyZBlYIo1EXmtD0bi
Ghost: That last tank didn’t finish refuelling before it got airlifted out. Cayde-6: Amanda told me Cabal fuel makes a pretty good accelerant. @Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=16EiMWFuKHdNB9HRMsGhcEB88DLSsbOGk
Ghost: Wait a minute – there’s a high concentration of solar energy over there! @Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pOwgblTPWtv9c7srvCAzXT08lEbW8Q1b
Hawthorne: Scanners show reinforcements coming.
Ghost: That last harvester exposed an active fuel cell. Maybe we can use it!
Cayde-6: Attaboy.
@Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DLnqgEIwQ5X7SrzLQ71LE0ELLr4FIIiX
Ghost: Thanks for moving that tank out of the way. Head for that solar fuel cell! @DrJazzyBebop https://drive.google.com/open?id=12pllMJlXjj5QQxJlwi_1oaiebz1Cwqhi

Hawthorne: Whats that hissing noise? Cayde-6: That’s me. I must have… Oh, wait a minute. Nope, not me. Ghost: It’s us! She’s carrying the fuel cell! Cayde-6: Nice! @pirate_dani https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bKjOS1oQ3quGlxIw8mIhJSSm2lAfpI9u
Ghost: Great, grab it and… uh, whats the plan here? Cayde-6: Plan shmam. Take the radioactive thing and put in explody place. There… there’s your plan. @pirate_dani https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qTXW9YBhar7GhEZ4kXihqzY6L5cZ5Tut
Ghost: OK, I didn’t mean for you to pick it up! But we’ll work with this. Hawthorne: Is this what “be brave” means for you Guardians? Didn’t know it was a prayer. Cayde-6: A true Guardian grabs the danger and walks around with it. @Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LTiMOvnPnKsg7GWQVBotxB1Ae5dvpkJ5
Hawthorne: I can’t believe it. You were right. He grabbed it.
Cayde-6: It’s what I would have done.
Hawthorne: It’s not what ANYONE should have done!
@Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=14UiDQnkkGtaTZK2PudnfNbGKKvzfHMD5
Ghost: Why would you pick it up?!
Cayde: So she can find where it’ll do the most damage. Smart.
Ghost: Is it?!

Cayde-6: Sounded like a nice dunk. Hawthorne: ‘Dunk’? Cayde-6: Yeah, thats what we Guardians call it when we jam a radioactive fuel cell into an exhaust vent. You wouldn’t understand. @pirate_dani https://drive.google.com/open?id=1aziSjvhUehRc2dBowJLf0bqZu5GwZubz
Ghost: We did it! And we didn’t blow up.
Cayde-6: Yeah, not blowing up is as good as you can hope for sometimes.
Hawthorne: Way to reach for the starts.

Ghost: Still haven’t been able to track down Zahn. Cabal usually LIKE to be found. Cayde-6: This guy’s no ordinary space rhino. His weapons ain’t half bad, either. Hawthorne: Those weapons have snuffed out too many good people. Cayde-6: Oh, don’t get me wrong. He’ll still deserve whatever this fireteam gives him. They always do. @Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1MPSwmrhaTnV821oJ-NmytvGir7aqhxwq
Ghost: Zahn’s lieutenants aren’t messing around. Think we’ve seen the last of them?
Hawthorne: He’s bound to have more. Insecure men tend to surround themselves with others like them.
Ghost: Cayde? Anything to add?
Cayde-6: Nope, she’s totally right. Which is why I work alone.

Ghost: Well, this looks familiar. Cayde-6: Yeah, funny story about the Oh-roh? Oh-roh… Oh-roh-bahn…uh… Hawthorne: Cabal and their weird ship names. Think it was the Orobas Vectura. Cayde-6: Yeah, that one. Zhan moved in after you put Thumos out to pasture. He’s in there somewhere. @pirate_Dani https://drive.google.com/open?id=1_j-tbKBTDmWcANsixd5QC6Jk_fbMXtYo
Ghost: The ship is still here! Cayde-6: Zahn moved in after you put Thumos down. Surprised he hasn’t painted the place chartreuse to match his armor. //REFERENCE {transcript:Unbroken} Hawthorne: I’m sorry, painted it what now? Cayde-6: Ah… nothing. @Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1K7PBYKRKsNByewtYV9XwRZBNSyIM126A

**The Guardian make their way into the Orobas Vectura

Ghost: We’re inside the ship again. Zhan can’t be far now.
Cayde-6: Could be some really weird defenses in there. Not just flame turrets – I’m talking REALLY weird.
Hawthorne: Don’t mess with them. They need to stay focused.
@Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-bvM49tF65qBNFo-tQwiYS5nVb1ODpdo

Ghost: I liked this place better when there wasn’t a Cabal TANK in it. Hawthorne: Why would they put a tank inside a ship? Cayde-6: Cause Zahn’s running scared. Don’t let up, fireteam. @Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1TWLS-0UnWkX9Sgy7UXlSKUB4nAKa9Hbh
Ghost: No sign of Zahn. But that elevator’s the only way forward. Forward… and up.
Cayde-6: The Cabal made an elevator that goes forward? Man, they ARE inefficient.
@Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ZNwF0xCL9na56NHbSZ8N1DkyCeCfrbO7
Ghost: Remember that elevator? Looks like we have to bring it down again.
Cayde: That sounds easy.
Ghost: There’s a tank here.
Cayde: OK, well, there are many… levels of easy.

Ghost: Hawthorne, you’re not going to believe this.
Cayde-6: Wait, wait, wait! Let me guess – giant flame turret.
Ghost: No. But thanks for that image.
@Sekuiya https://drive.google.com/open?id=1JbAcYsTvT1HmyG6pX-CiJ2ItRnUji9Ik
