Alright. After a little bit of tinkering with my blue-tint combat visor, indespensible when you consider the fact that I don't use a flight helmet, and I now have working auto-target gear. Now, to go do training in the sim comparable to that of a shounen manga until I get used to the thing. Don't expect to see me again tonight.

*Fake TV commercial voice*
We've secretly replaced his regular QRaus with a swarm of jibbering ewoks and crude log traps. Let's see if he can tell the difference.




Yeah, yeah.... I'll revert it in a few minutes.

Are you the one who leaves the safety off after he's done?

Yes, It is what keeps the pilots from getting injured in the holo-simulator. Someone keeps turning it off and leaving it off.

We have a HOLODECK?!?!?!?!
Why didn't anyone TELL ME?!?!?!?!

Not that I would use it for practice. I far prefer a conventional stand-alone cockpit sim.
But THINK OF THE PORN!!!!!

I may have just answered my own question.

Ok, It's not you. Oh! Crap, I wasn't supposed to tell anyone that didn't know. I'm sorry JayBee, but I need to use my amnesia device.

Shit!
*grabs a MOSPEADA helmet off the shelf, hesitates, puts it on*

I swear, if you scuff my helmet with that brainbuster, I'm gonna give your KNEECAPS amnesia. Do you know how hard it is to find these suits nowadays? Especially this close to mint!

Ok, we need to come to an arrangement, I won't give you a massive concussion, and you don't talk about the holo-simulator.

Andrew, The simulator is no secret (who ever told you other wise was joking)

as for the safety; last time, you were the one who turned it off, during start up.

and besides Jaybee needs to be ready to fight with a QRau on Sunday and I doubt receiving a concussion will help

So I can put my helmet back up?
*takes it off, puts it back on the rack with the rest of the suit*
Hmmm, I need to dust more often...




I'm gonna go hit the sim. The old-fashioned one.
'Sides, a holodeck would be wasted on YF-21 practice.

Taking the Sazabi out of the equation really upped my survival time on the mission sim.
But it's not really beatable solo. One Gunstar against the whole armada? It'll be a slaughter!


As far as artificial situations go.... I can take 3 QRaus at once now, with an average AI level. Still working on 4.

I'm doing better than I expected to against a solo QRau at max, which is based on the REAL Millia's combat data.
I never COULD best her back at the academy, but god knows I tried hard enough. I've gotten a bit better since then.

Not that I intend to take her on again. I know from practice at the academy that AI falls a bit short of the real thing. But I'd love to see the look on her face if I could hit her just once in an all-out dogfight.
Back when we were training, all-out usually meant someone was being used as a practice dummy in the day's lesson. That or it was squadron VS teacher day.
Either way, it never ended well for us.
....
Not even that day she brought her old VF-1 in. You'd think a squad of VF-11s could get ONE good hit in on an aged relic like that.
You would be wrong. You would be oh so very wrong.

just be glad you never fought Max; best I ever did back then was scratch his wing while he was half asleep at the controls (compared to when I got both of Millia's arms)

man that was too long ago. 

Ah well, He and Millia went their way and I went to work with the PTX team.  (you really have no Idea how good Elzam's cooking is until you actually have it)

Don't you mean "Ratsel"?

I'm sure he still goes by that name.

Personally, from what I've seen they're about equal.
And when they're flying together, it's more like they're one person that just HAPPENS to be in 2 places at once. If I didn't know better, I'd say the both of them were psychic.
Though I can't really say I "fought the pair of them" so much as "was in the same sim as them for a few seconds"

Kind of a funny story....
One of the guys in our class.... apparently he was a racist bastard, thought all zentradi were vicious brutes and if they weren't killing you now, they would be later. We were headed out of our first lecture, and he said we needed to learn everything we could from her before she went feral and tried to knife us in the back.
OF COURSE he was also too stupid to look behind him to see exactly who was in earshot. Mrs. Jenius isn't two foot away from him. She clears her throat, he turns around and goes white as a sheet.
She didn't say a word. Just gave him a look that could shatter concrete and went on out while we stared at him.  I figured she was just used to that sort of bullshit and wasn't going to waste the effort on a larger response..
...
A week later we got tag-teamed in the sim.  


The twelve of us were flying a set of "skills evaluation" sims, allegedly to see what our strengths were, how well we worked together, and who needed to be pulling extra hours in the sim.
Not that any of us was a slouch in the cockpit at that point, or we wouldn't have BEEN in Millia's class.

The third sim deviated rather wildly from the scheduled program(hostage rescue, I think it was supposed to be) when a pair of QRaus popped up over a ridge in trademark blue and red shortly after the sim started.

10 seconds later, the first shots were fired.
20 seconds after that, the only one of us that was in the air was the guy that mouthed off. 0 missiles fired, just the arm cannons.

They proceeded to play with the xenophobic moron for a while before they went for the "kill."
They'd put the pressure on, pop a few holes in the plane, back off and let him try something, then slap him down and blast a few more holes.
Finally, Milla landed on his terminally battered VF, ripped the cockpit out, and crushed it in her QRau's hand.

It was like a scene in DYRL went horribly horribly wrong.


Mr. Jenius came in the locker room while we were cleaning up afterwards. Walked up to the guy, told him "Never say that about my wife again" and left. Perfectly calm, cool, and collected.
Wasn't any malice in his voice, no barely restrained rage, nothing.  Just a simple matter-of-fact statement.
It was SCARY. AS. HELL.

Kid was transferred out of our class the next day.
I think he wound up doing destroid maintenance on some backwater colony in the middle of nowhere. Can't say if it was politics(face it, you just DON'T talk about a war hero/war hero's wife that way) or if they broke him in the sim.


Anyways, NEVER make one of them mad.
You either won't live to regret it, or you'll live to regret it for a very looooong time.

I'd say it was the sim.  From the way he said it, it was like he was warning him like you would warn someone about to stick their hand in a fire.

YOU JUST DON"T DO IT.
