Team Selection, Part 1

OK, The General gave me the basic plan of what’s going on. There are elements at a resort on Planet Swestria who are loyal to Galactor the Evil Galactic Overlord. Swestria considers itself neutral for tourism purposes, and so dropping a regiment of the Queen’s Royal Guard is not feasible.

After assembling my squad, the plan is to infiltrate the resort using various cover stories, and get the space gold that they stole from the Galactic Treasury. Secondary objectives would be to uncover any intelligence available on their activities and operatives and to bug the target if possible.

The target’s name is Gervais Baltizar. He has a suite at the resort and his cover is that he’s a wealthy businessman. In reality, he is a crook and a despicable character.

Oh I can’t wait to sink my teeth into this mission. I hate these smug corporate jerks. They think they’re so tough? They ain’t so tough after a visit from the H-Man.

First thing’s first, though. I have to pick my squad.

General: Private Ace Levy, Mobile Infantry.

Hudson: I like him; he’s my kind of trooper. Plus he can play that space violin which is totally cool.

General: This is Corporal Agarn. He is an old fashioned horse soldier and the camp scrounger. Whatever you need, he can find it.

Hudson: What need will we have for a cavalry troop?

General: Well probably none.

Hudson: Pass.

Hudson: I don’t know if I want this guy. He looks like a complete Section 8.

General: Oh he’s a brilliant soldier. He’s got experience as a medic and company clerk, plus he’s a master of disguise.

Hudson: So he's not just some sort of fruitcake?

General: No, no! He's the real deal.

Hudson: Uh, OK.

Hudson: Who's that?

General: That is Deputy Barney Fife. He is a straight arrow, by-the-book law enforcement machine. He is a crack shot as well. In fact, because he is such an expert, they call him Barney One Bullet.

Hudson: Does he have any military training?

General: Not likely.

Hudson: Pass.

General: This is Spaceman First Class Lawrence Camisa-Roja. He just graduated from training top of his class as a security specialist. He's got his whole career ahead of him and is waiting for his first assignment.

Hudson: Security specialist, eh? I could use him if things get hairy. He's in.

General: This is Maverick. He's an ace fighter pilot and an instructor at the Top Gun school. In his spare time, he humiliates women by singing to them in crowded bars then chases them into the ladies bathroom to hit on them. He's the best pilot we've got, though.

Hudson: And he's an officer?

General: Yes.

Hudson: So he outranks me?

General: Affirmative.

Hudson: Pass.

With Camisa-Roja, Levy and Klinger selected, I have three of my team members picked out, so we're halfway there. The General and I will finish the selection process tomorrow as we have a lot of files here to look through. Hmmm, who's file should I look at next?

Wow, that will be an awesome team, Hudson. I am sure that you will find a girl scout, or two, to round it out.

And you should have selected that Fife guy. I hear he like to take trouble and "nip it in the bud." What a plan!

There was this Gunnery Sgt from a show called JAG that my Intern was always partial too...

I'd also suggest Jack Ryan, but he out ranks you, so you'd pass. Perhaps Domingo "Ding" Chavez, can't remember his rank.

Maybe Pvt. Ryan?

And don't be making fun of girl scouts, wedge, for they posses the power of the cookie.

Going to suggest Cap'n Crunch, I was. But outrank a corporal, a cap'n would. Too bad that is. Last a long time in milk, he can.

You totally need the man they call Jayne! He'd be perfect for Hudson's team. Currently works for a guy named Malcom Reynolds. You should try to get Jayne
