She wasn't sure
which way they were headed and she didn't want to find out unexpectedly either.
Leah moved ever
closer to the phaser fight, careful to move quietly lest a misstep betray
her presence. She kept a steady eye on the corridor ahead, ready to fire
at anyone that came into view. Provided of course they weren't in Federation

two men with weapons and screamed as they burst into the room.
The two burly
Orions paused unexpectedly, surprised at a woman and children who were clearly
civilians. The third remained outside engaged in a fire fight with MIDN Rockwell's
quick advantage of their momentary confusion, scooping up two of the smallest
children and motioned for the others to go into the back rooms. She moved
fast and barked out orders to the children even faster. Two of the older
children ran quickly into the next room. Chalandra counted at least three
men as she stood there with a child under each arm. Two men were with her
now and at least one other must be firing the weapon she heard in the background
at someone else with a phaser. There could be more she worried.

picking the obvious most natural question.
"The man from
the station in the quarters near yours! Where did he go?" one of the boarders
asked gruffly waving his weapon menacingly.
Leah took aim
on the intruder furthest form Chalandra and the kiddies, then she fired switching
to the second target even as the first one was hit.
As one of the
boarders hit the deck, Chalandra sprinted with kids under each arm to kitchen.
She quickly tossed out the contents in a lower cabinet and stuffed the kids
in. "Stay," she ordered. She slowly got up and turned around looking for
a weapon or something to deflect the fire.

The third man,
who was providing covering fire, replied, "Okay, get clear."
The inert Orion and two standing ones disappeared quickly in the beam out
