She grinned at the exchange between Mickey and Polo, and chuckled once the girl had left.  "She may be small, but my money's on her.  If she goes down, she'll take you with her.  Possibly a few others, too.  She knows how to use every firearm in my armory about as well as I do, I dare say better on a few," she admitted.  She was smirking, but there was a feral pride in the look.  "You don't last as my cabin girl for four years without a steel rod for a spine and enough mouth for three men."  And that's the way she liked it.  She needed at least one person around her unafraid to speak the unabashed truth.  Even Porras maintained his manners and deference.  If Mickey thought her Captain was being dumb, she said so.  In the privacy of her cabin, at least.  The girl was mostly smart enough to not shoot her mouth off in front of other officers or general crew members.  Blackwood forgave her for her snip at Polo, because the girl was venting much that Aerion herself wished to give voice to, but could not.

As before, she took in all the new information quietly, committing it all to memory before she needed to know it.  "Has the latest radio transmission equipment been installed?  If it's who I hope it is captaining the German vessel, I've got a few words I'd like to say to him before I reduce him to cannon fodder," she smirked tightly.

"Its one of those directional transmitters," Polo confirmed.  "And the antennas are being installed now.  Mister Porras doesn't need must to fo outside the ship and do things, I think he can fly, but that may be a stretch of the imagination.  But, like I always say, if you have to deal with the odd and unusual, better if they're on your side.  He glanced at the clock.  "Breakfast is in eight hours, drill is in nine, you might as well get your sleep while you can, because tonight is just about all I think any of us are guaranteed for a day or two.  You'll want to be well rested when you insult the mouthy kraut."

She nodded and excused him, but not before responding once more.  "When I'm done with him, he'll be crying for his cabin boy to wipe the piss from his leg," she grinned.

Once Polo was gone, she showed herself to her sleeping cabin and familiarized herself with where everything was.  Mickey had done well to relocate all of her personal affects to as close to a similar location as was possible, and everything else took only minimal hunting to locate.  Her ammunition case was set next to her bunk, and a quick check showed that it was still packed, and that the link to the revolver she carried was still active. 

It was an outdated weapon by modern standards, practically an antique, but it was still in perfect working condition.  She had discovered the identity of the original manufacturer on one of her last visits to Palto Riaga, and had it serviced then.  The gunsmith had been nearly overjoyed that it had fallen back into ally hands after its initial theft generations ago (in human terms, anyway), and Aerion had been disinclined to refuse her other 'services' that she performed out of gratitude.  Porras, as her escort through the city, had only been too happy to watch (she made him wait to express his own 'gratitude' until later).

The first night was the hardest.  There were so many new sounds to get used to, and none of them were the familiar sound of waves lapping against wood.  In place of the gentle creak and groan of wood, there were tings and bangs and all manner of other metallic noises.  After dressing down, she took some time to write in her private log, and finally, after the self-administration of another shot of liquor, she found some semblance of sleep.

"Show a leg, Cap'n," Mickey said as she breezed through.  "Least you could do is have somebody in here to hide under the covers now and then, I'm young and that sort of thing keeps us giggling," she laid out silk garments and then her leather suit.  "Breakfast'll be on the table in two shakes, an omelet, fresh baked bread, sliced fruit, coffee, tea, juice or milk.  The cook on this tub really knows his head from his arse and his eggs are the fluffiest you've ever seen, says you can have flapjacks or waffles if you like.  Weather is cool up here, we have a wind from astern, the glass is steady and the sun rose red."  Mickey laid out her brush and comb in the bathroom.  "I'll braid your hair after you eat, you want a shower?"  Then she finally inhaled for the first time since walking into the room.

The ship behind Rampage was simply the staked goat to distract the tiger, its two companion vessels had rushed at full speed westerly and as dawn broke they were to the west of Rampage, steaming hard for her.  Klaxons rang on all four vessels and gunners feverishly worked their calculations, then there was a large explosion at the stern of the most southerly vessel.


"Four fourty-seven," Jack snapped his pocket watch closed.  "Three minutes early."

"Command discretion," Throckmorton shrugged.  "So, one to our southwest, one to our northwest, set a course right down the middle?"

"Of course," Jack replied with a wolfish grin, "but in six minutes it'll be target guns to the north."


Frantic signals, there was no sign of gunnery anywhere, lookouts spotted no mines, yet one of their number was sinking by the stern.  They agreed to increase speed and destroy the target before whatever he did could be done again.  Then the water burst at the stern of the southerly vessel, leaping high in the air as the ship went dead in the water, and the northerly ship abruptly veered hard and ran frantically as a 6" shell tore through its aft-most turret like tissue paper.


Jack snapped his pocket watch closed again and shook it by his ear.  "Maybe I need to take this in to be looked at?"

"Soon enough you'll be the one hiding someone in your bed," she smirked as she rose.  A shower would do her good.  After all, she couldn't meet the rest of her staff, or kill an enemy, looking like she had just crawled out of bed.

Her wash was quick, as she was long accustomed to conserving water aboard ships, and she emerged just as Mickey was laying out the last of breakfast.  She dried quickly and left her hair in the towel for Mickey to wrangle later, and dressed in the silks and the leather pants before stepping out for breakfast.  She would likely need the girl's help with the rest of the leathers, if for nothing else than to help her place all her weapons.

Which brought up an interesting thought.  If they were airbound, why the need for such an extensive personal armory?  She couldn't conceive of them boarding another airship, and taking to a surface vessel would be foolhardy given their current crew count.  Then again, it did make old naval sorts like herself comfortable having that sort of firepower around.  Force of habit and all.

"Alright Mickey, let's get me ready," she finally sighed after breakfast.  "I've got a ship to command and a crew to impress."

Mickey had a head start on the leathers so helping her into them was easy.  She buckled the boots over the pantlegs and dropped knives into the boot scabbards.  Then the jacket, but the rank at her shoulders was not what Aerion was used to seeing, they indicated a commodore.  Then the harness, with various d-rings for securing tethers, and her air bottles and breathing gear, and finally her holsters.  Mickey made no move to load her pistols, nobody with any sense relied on a weapon loaded by another.

The mood of the ship was a mixture of curiosity and excitement, new captain, a drill and soon to come, a battle.  To add to the curiosity and excitement, a new flag had been added to the the lounges, and now with the national and the new air service flags was the battle pennant of a commodore.  Polo looked at it proudly as he looked at the assembled crew.  "Now, the rules are the same, you ogle my commodore and I play marbles with your eyes and use your balls to stop up your nasty little vocal cords.  Now, we're about to do a dress rehearsal for asses we'll kick later, and nobody wants to be the miserable inbred little peckerwood that stand in front of me with the words 'we'd have won, except this miserable mudsucker screwed the pooch,' anybody that doesn't believe that can wait around after, I just hope you have a taste for liver, mainly your own.  We'll be taking the Empress to the roof and we'll be blasting the dog-walking shit out of a dipshit rock in the middle of nowhere, gunners and aimers, have your shit together."

Polo went on for some time before lifting the phone.  "Mister Kielley, General Quarters at the Commodore's order.  I have the little pissants sitting around and acting as normal as they know how to be."

Kielley shook his head and flipped the switch, "General Quarters at your order, Ma'am," he informed Aerion.

Vice Admiral William Courtwright Turnbull had the patience that you'd expect from a man known worldwide as Bloody Bill, he served his country and more specifically his nephew as commander of the armed forces, not the largest in the world, but at least one of the most feared.  Bill was an earthy soul that valued practicality and simplicity.  So on one hand he valued Dr Georges Baekeland, and on the other he was ready to strap a keg of nitroglycerin to the the Belgian Bastard and push him off of a high cliff.  What kept the destructive side of Bill's nature in check was the brain that he'd eliminate with the twerp.  Baekeland led the research team that was advancing the Caledonian Armed forces by leaps and bounds over the rest of the world.  Steel and duraluminum alloys, steam turbines, propellants and explosives and the list continued to grow.

"Georgie," Bill greeted him with a friendly voice and malicious intent, "what surprises have you for me today?"

Dr Baekeland let his breath out in an attempt to control his irritation with the impertinence of the uniformed barbarian before him.  "We're analyzing the munitions that your agents acquired for us, the British and Germans are making disturbing progress in the field of chemical weapons, but their efforts to protect their troops from these agents are lagging woefully.  We're working on defenses, and I must agree with the President and yourself that these weapons have no place in the world.  We already know that the leathers of the Aerial Service stop the blistering agents, and their helmets and air vests protect them in the short run from the incapacitating gasses.  We're working on filtration units for our people for their protection."

Bill nodded and grimaced.  "Hellish stuff that is," he agreed.  "I hope that any bastard that fields it dies screaming from it's use."

They had common ground after all.  "We've increased the power and range of ammunition and artillery shells through refinements in those propellants.  I find it wise that you've limited personal weapons to a few calibers, and for crew weaponry we're close to a prototype for a water or air-cooled machine gun in the same caliber as the semi-automatic rifles, our goal is to reduce weight to thirty pounds."

"How about the self-propelled guns, I see you're producing them in numbers now?"

"Ah yes, a cut down 6-inch naval rifle mounted inside an armored vehicle, a steam turbine engine driving twin tracks, they also have twin heavy machine guns to suppress infantry.  I've compared them to experiments in Europe and we field smaller vehicles with heavier firepower and greater armor protection.  We're still working on a 12-inch railway gun, which will allow us to have portable defense guns that can be quickly moved to where they're needed, and it will keep our defenses from being mappable.  I want a thirty-mile range though, and that will take more experimentation with propellants."

"Some good news for you," Bill said.  "Share with your teams that one of your submersibles sank two German destroyers pursuing the President's ship.  Four torpedoes directly into their sterns, I'll forward the captain's reports to you when I receive them."

"That would be exceptional," Baekeland beamed.  "We're well on the way to making the three test subjects obsolete.  We have improved the batteries and generators, and you'll be suitably impressed, I'm sure, with the advances we've made in steam turbines and the boilers themselves.  Partly by new pressure pumps between the boilers and turbines, and we've improved the metallurgy of the turbine disks and minimized warping.  The new casting process also lets us reduce the weight of the turbine housings, so we'll be able to refit engines with lighter engines that will increase range and speed.  We're also working on a turret for the airships, either two 3.4-inch artillery pieces or one six-inch heavy gun.  We're going to see what works the best and build modules that we can integrate as quickly as possible for refit of Empress, and we'll incorporate them into the ships being built."

Bill looked around and nodded.  "Impressive," he said agreeably.  "I would also like for you to develop lifts for the airships, to move crew, tools and munitions from the keel upward, this will simplify matters greatly.  Also, a pump and filtration system that the engineers can use to remove impurities that collect in the lift gas, helium needs to be clean to lift as I recall my science."

"Intriguing," Baekeland murmured.  "And a wise precaution for situations calling for battle damage repair.  We could also incorporate such a system into the surface and tenders and aerial tenders being built.  You'll be happy to know that the Presidential flagship is progressing in the big hangar.  It's the largest propelled object on land, sea or air."

"Perfect," Bill nodded.  "Jack asked for something that can serve as a flying capitol and it sounds as if you'll deliver.  How much longer for the new submersibles?"

"Give us a year and you'll have three squadrons," Baekeland promised.  "You've given us a lot of hands, and delivering us pieces so easy to assemble.  In eighteen months we'll have everything that you've tasked us complete and fielded."

"A year would be better," Bill said.  "There are many shooting wars brewing in the world, and many of them have the potential to make our lives miserable.  You may not know it Doc, but right now your laboratories and workshops are the front lines.  Science and accomplishment are wonderful, but you're in a battle to provide your country with the means to defend itself from most of the world that wants what we, and Palto Riaga have.  Your sweat will save an ocean of blood if you do it right."

The klaxxons rang and Polo looked at the suddenly blank faces.  "Holy hot-buttered Christ on a fucking pogo stick, why do I still see you?  Assholes and elbows! MOVE! MOVE! MOVE!" the Master Chief bellowed at the hop of his not inconsiderable lungs and the place emptied.

Kielley pulled his leather helmet over his head and let Aerion see him attach his mask to his face and then he plugged in his air hose; his, like hers, had two odd copper connectors that made contact with the rings around the connector.  He pushed a spot on his mask and heard him speak, "Exec is up," he reported into the telephone receiver built into his microphone.  He waited until Aerion copied him.

"Notify all stations, we're going to the roof, emergency climb," he pointed to the men at the front of the control gondola.  "Execute emergency climb!"

The nose raised slightly and the sounds of the props increased in pitch.  Gauges showing lift gas temperature climbed slowly and there was a slight feeling of heaviness as the Empress climbed.  There were airbags nestles below the helium bags and heat increased the air temperature within and the seemingly slight weight of the cold air suddenly faded and the ship climbed even faster.  Then the ballast water poured out from below and the empress climbed even faster.

"Rate of climb is one thousand feet per minute, Commodore," Kielley reported.  "We'll be at maximum altitude in twenty minutes at this rate, but the rate of climb will increase in a moment as we get everything hot."  He pressed his mask and Aerios could hear him.  "Give me ship-wide," then a few seconds later.  "Attention all stations, we've passed ten-thousand feet, if you aren't on oxygen you're about to bitterly curse life.  Chiefs and petty officers, check the crew and attend to defaulters."

Polo's voice could be heard from far above them.  "You, you ham-headed meat puppet!  In two minutes you'll be too stupid to live, get on air or I'll drop you over and save everyone the bullshit of burying you!"

Then the rate of climb increased until they carefully managed the climb to top out at around 32,000 feet.  "We're about ten-thousand feet higher than anyone else has flown," Kielley said, his head close to hers.  "We're level and stable now, and the chiefs are checking us over."  He led her to the front of the compartment and showed her all of the gauges, and surprisingly it didn't actually look that high.  With nothing but ocean below them all that might be noticed is that the waves blended until the sea looked smooth.  "Everything is high green, nothing in the yellow or red."  He tapped the woman at the engine telegraph.  "Lift engines to maintain altitude only, but lets take our speed to full."  He looked at Aerion.  "Care to take the rudder wheel?" he asked her, "to get a feel for our lady?"

[smg id=1577 align=left]One last time to look at the lines of the NCSV Loki before she was confined within for many weeks.  The life of a submariner was certainly not the sunshine and teacakes that even Verne's dark tale spelled out.  Inside she was scoured and clean but soon her senses of smell and taste would be beat into submission by the odors of oil, bilge and rank sweaty bodies.  Her own hand was evident in all details of the design of the Model III's, and that stretched to two saltwater showers.  Commander Anneli Aalto had long since become used to a lack of privacy, to questionable food, to months of damp clothes and musty blankets, but unwashed bodies could get gross in a hurry, quite frankly.

The Type III was a huge advance in submersibles, or submarines, or whatever you called them.  The Germans called them Pig Boats but who really gave a shit what the Krauts thought?  Anneli's heritage was Finnish, her people had been among the first to join with the Turnbulls, over the years they'd been screwed over in royal style by the Germans, Swedish and particularly the fucking Russians.  Caledonia was their chance to start over, and now none were more Caledonian Nationalist than the Aaltos of Nova Caledonia.  She shook her head and admired the lines one more time.  There was a rumor that Jack Turnbull had trained several seers or fortune tellers as engineers, combining their divining insights with hard science to make advances that left the rest of the world's scientists playing catch up.  She wasn't sure if that was the case but it would certainly explain many of the advances between the second and third generations of Caladonian submersibles.

Boilers were plagued with gasses that built up and could explode if not routinely vented, but Jack's Hoodoo Engineers found a way to vent that off and combine it with their fuel in the combustors to increase the stores gasses that fired the burners.  Emergency filters extended the breathing air by stripping out harmful gasses, the list was endless.  And all of these features were going to be fitted to existing vessels when they returned for refit.  Loki was a marvel of technology, the latest boilers and turbines, six torpedo tubes, four forward and two aft, and the fitting of twin turrets with the ubiquitous 3.4" or 88mm naval artillery rifles was genius.  Deadly against light armor it sould also be used at airships at altitudes even up into the twenty-thousand foot range.  The turrets were the hardest thing to perfect, securing them while leaving then 180 degrees of rotation and making them watertight when submerged and yet able to utilize their guns.

The most advanced ship on the seas and the first kills for submerged vessels went to a pair of lucky Model IIs.  Fortune flicked her the fickle finger of firsts there, but she had confidence that her skills would be needed soon.  Judging by her first patrol route, that kept her between Palto Riaga and the German possessions, if would take a really twisted quirk of fate to being her home with all of her munitions.  She had a long way to go, Blackwood had made her reputation, and Anneli intended that she not be Nova Caledonia's only famous woman captain for much longer.

She stepped aboard to the twittering of the Bosun's pipes and saluted the ship's colors before climbing to the conning tower.  "Ready in all regards for sea, Ma'am," her exec reported.  "Secure the turrets," she ordered, "we'll dive as soon as we enter the deep channel."  An order shouted and the gunners locked the turrets in place, which engaged extra seals, the guns slid back smoothly and the shutters were cranked into place and secured, they didn't clear the turrets yet, they could be manned up to fifty feet and after that safety called for them to be cleared and the airlock doors secured.  Loki emerged from the sheltered dock and moved out into the harbor and pointed out toward the open sea.  Commander Aalto looked around.  "Gunners and observers below."  And when she saw that her orders were obeyed she descended to the control room, insuring the hatch was secured on her way.  "Time to wash the decks, double check that we're in the channel and take us to periscope depth."

The climb was rough, and in her younger years the force at which her stomach dropped would have been matched by how fast it came back up her throat.  Even so, when they finally leveled off her hands were white-knuckled around the rail she had held to, and dizzy nausea threatened to embarrass her.  Stern mastery of herself finally won out, and with a few deep breaths she brought herself mostly under control again.

Taking the helm was strange.  So used to feeling the heavy pull of the waves against the rudder, Aerion had to take a moment to simply accustom herself to the feel of the controls.

The rudder was surprisingly smooth, but there wasn't the same feedback that you felt with a sailing ship but with your feet planted on the deck you could feel what it was doing with your whole body.  It was an odd control setup that took three people to keep her pointed exactly where she wanted to go.  The rudder wheel controlled direction, the elevator wheel controlled nose up or down and the engine telegraph could be used to help with steering by adding or taking away power to help yaw the airship in the direction you wanted to go.

"Its deceptively smooth," Kielley said from behind her.  "Especially in smooth air, but you can feel her a lot more than you can a surface ship, and for something so long you can turn her in a hurry if you want using the wheel and engines.  When you add in an altitude change you can actually increase the speed of the turn, like a corkscrew."

Then a second voice crackled over their earphones.  "I have an American signal, apparently one of their airships in an air convoy was destroyed and the survivor has asked a German airship for assistance, but it was very rudely refused.  Range is roughly six hundred miles."

"At course and speed, under six hours until contact, call it five and a half, just in time for lunch," the navigator added sourly.

"Fancy a bit of Kraut for dinner, Captain?," Kielley asked, the change in tone in her ears indicated that he was on a private circuit.  "Maybe you'd like to go forward and see the main gun and aiming gear?"

She made a vulgar sound back to him on the same circuit.  "Don't even joke about that, or I'll have you cleaning the head for a week."  Still, she understood his meaning, and the amusement showed clearly in her eyes as she looked at him.  She managed to transfer herself back to the open line with only limited trouble.  "How much can we push her?  I'd rather not have my meal ruined by that swine.  Besides, if we take care of him fast enough, there might yet be time for the cooks to plan something special for dinner."  A celebratory dinner would be a fine way to commemorate the Empress' first victory in battle, as well as the defeat of that ass.

"She runs like a monkey with a hot pepper up its bum and climbs like a homesick angel," Kielley replied then set his interphone to the observer channel.  "Keep a weather eye out for an American airship in distress, and a German airship we mean to put in distress."  He listened for a moment and dialed back to the control car channel.  "Should we give the yank a bearing or do you think that'll warn the Krauts?"

She thought hard about that.  The Americans were allies thus far.  And the German's hadn't attacked them outright yet, merely turned them away.  So there was little danger in them turning on the Americans if they knew their own target was coming.

A slow, savage little smile spread her lips under the air mask, and her eyes glittered with devious delight.  "Let the Americans know we're coming for them.  If the Germans hear us...  Well, no one can say I didn't give him fair warning..."

"Frenchy, I've got a Caledonian Airship, the Empress.  She's flashed us a bearing to rendezvous."  He passed up a note.  "They say they'll render aid."

"How're you holding up Caleb?"

"Morphine, Boss," Crosby replied.  "I have a whole box of ampules if I need'em.  Bleeding has stopped too."

Villiers adjusted his course.  "Almost six hours.  Don't get too brave but don't be stupid and dope yourself to death."



"Captain!" the comm officer shouted up to Rall.  "The American has contacted a Nova Caledonian Airship Empress.  They sent him a bearing to follow for rendezvous."

"Do you have a radio bearing to their true position?"

"No, Sir.  They didn't transmit long enough and we need a second bearing for range, our forward antenna was masked, so they are close to a dead astern bearing."

Rall gave orders to reverse course and pour on the steam and ordered a contact report sent ahead.



"Skipper," Ensign Quills voice was obviously excited as she called up her report.  "The German is transmitting, in code but we have about half of it broken.  They're position is changing, we think she's turning hard and wide based on bearing changes.  Navigator has the figures."

"Cap'n," Lieutenant Jian called from the map table behind her.  "We'll reach the American roughly a half hour before we can bring guns to bear on the German.  We have an air current down about ten thousand feet below us, it could give us an extra ten to twenty minutes on top of that."

"We can grab the Yanks, and go back up and search for her from our service ceiling," Kielley studied the map.  "Maybe even use the time to try and circle to take her from the rear."

"Do it," she nodded.  "Rall's an idiot.  Arrogant, self-important, and he never knew when he was walking into a trap," she grinned.  Aerion braced her feet and relaxed her muscles to feel the way the ship moved, trying to get to know her new lady.

Time at altitude was not necessarily comfortable nor easy, even in protective suits.  When the observers reported sighting the American airship Polo dropped lightly into the gondola and studiously avoided looking out the windows.  "Commander Peccedine has qualified as gunnery officer," he reported to the captain after he plugged in.  "Good officer.  I have the observers doubled but I had the off watches in their racks so they'll be fresh.  I talked to the boarders, just in case we need to send them.  Crew's ready and looking forward to bust some heads, Ma'am."

Kielley listened in and glanced to his captain, as the altimeter reflected they were down into the safe range.  "Exec to all hands, we're down into the green, you can come off masks.  Now's a good time for a head call if you've been saving up."  He looked over at the engineer.  "Keep the heat down, we don't want anyone sweating in their suits, it'll only freeze later."

"I can see it, Ma'am," third officer Wolff said, staring through his huge binoculars.  "Looks a little beat up, and its an unusual design.  Americans build some weird stuff."

"It's supposed to be designed for patrols and work as an airship hunter-killer," Kielley added in his two cents worth.

Margaret Quill, the comm officer called up through the intercom speakers.  "Yank airship reports three on board, one wounded and one dead, Ma'am.  Says he's a diplomatic courier, the American military attach

She took the reports with calm assurance.  "Alert the infirmary, take our guests straight there once they're on board," she replied to Quill.  Off the intercom, she spoke to her crew in the gondola.  "Germany already knows that we hate them.  Now we just have another reason," she spoke smoothly, her earlier predatory gleam covered by the stoic Captain.  But that didn't mean it wasn't there.

"Ensign," she called back down to Quill.  "Can the new radio equipment transmit to another ship?"  She wanted to let Rall know just how good and fucked he was.

"We can transmit to them," Quill assured her.  "The speaker doesn't care if its voice or Morse, they just won't be able to reply."



Topside the handling crew locked their safety straps into the rings and caught the guide wires as they released.  They locked them into the winches and drew the smaller airship down and secured it firmly into place.  Then they medical orderlies swarmed over the Four Aces and withdrew the blanketed figure from the back and rushed Corporal Crosby to the sickbay.  Villiers cut fuel to the burners and vented the steam pressure and finally disengaged the batteries.

"Can you take me to your Captain?" he asked when he was finally down in the crew area.  He found himself in the command gondola a few minutes later.  "Commodore," he read her rank.  "Major George Villiers, United States Marine Corps Aerial Division, and Liaison between the US and Nova Caledonia.  Thanks for your help."

"He doesn't need to reply," she grinned.  "He just needs to sit back and listen."

When the Major joined her on the bridge, she remained polite, if distracted, calling the orders that would get them poised to take on Rall.  "No offense, Major, but this is just as much of a personal vendetta as it is national business.  I've been waiting to rake this ass over the coals for a good long time."  She paused as they began to climb once more.  "Major, if you please, I'd like to take a report from you of what happened.  I don't expect this will take long.  Mr. Kielley, please see to the Major's comfort in the meantime."  Not quite a dismissal, but she made it clear that she had other things to focus on right then.  If it took sticking him in a cabin somewhere until they were finished with the Germans, then so be it.
