Sam remained silent. The silly orange jumpsuit and cuffs chafed a bit, but he put that aside, his mind on other things. Specifically, a next move. His armor would respond to him still, but that necessitated a place to be. He searched through a mental lis of assets... Project Triad. Of course. "Gentlemen, I give you a chance to flee."

"Huh? What're you--" Sam spun, the metal pieces of his armor shattering the cuffs, and zapped both guards non lethally. He dialed up Project Director James. "Alex. Activate Project Triad. I'll be there in.. ten minutes."

"Yes, sir." Sam looked back at the prison, a big hole in the roof, and several helicopters. "Dammit, Donn."

Triad 1.

"Sir, there are over 45,000 still-loyal soldiers from all of your projects, as well as an estimated 15,000 willing to defect from the military for you. How would you like us to proceed?"

"I'd like to change out of these clothes. Then we can talk."

Sam emerged from his quarters a minute later, looking much more well-groomed. "Lift Triad One. Cloak the other two and have one on each coast. Someone bring me a cup of coffee. And a camera." The ground shuttered, and the helicarrier lifted off the water, high enough to see the Great Lakes below.

Sam addressed the camera directly. "Today a great wrong has been done. And you are being lied to. I assume you all have heard, by now. The people involved are suspect. So this is my response. I am not a criminal. I came to Director Donn asking him to protect this country, the country that I love. Instead, he lied to me and sided with people who will destroy this country. I say no more. We will save America, by any means. Have a good afternoon." He moved from the frame, revealing the deck of Triad One, and his loyal men.

HA! HAHAHA!

For canon's sake, this is what's happening: The US is at war with Sam's three helicarriers and multiple unknown other projects. This won't end with one RP.

First of all: NICE. I dig it.

Second of all: What are these carriers up to, exactly? Are they firing upon cities, or government installations, or what?

One of those options will immediately trigger a response by STRIKE, the other will not.

Home base is in Thanagar but they're currently making sure the Orc thing doesn't flare up again in Mexico. Luna Hawk is their acting General until Solar Hawk has her baby.

The nice ladies in gothic can be contacted through internet back channels.

I'm assuming this all takes place after Andromeda Approaches? Including when Hound of War made the public aware of what Sam did? Does that mean the interview with Logic takes place before or after Andromeda? Does that mean Sam threw out Merran, but then gave him an interview? Or did the interview take place before Andromeda, Sam brought Merran along to the meeting as a way to sort of get on his good side, but then got fed up with him and threw him out? Or did the interview take place before Andromeda, but it all aired after?

Sorry if this is a bit much.

@fallenprophet: Eh. CV has always had a bit of a shifty timeline. Things pretty much fall into the most cohesive places possible. Only major events can be strictly ordered, because the small ones can go on for such a long time.

I wouldn't put it past Sam to give Logic an interview IC in order to prove him wrong tbh.

@hound_of_war: I like Interview, Sam invites Merran, throws him out, Merran sides with Donn, airs the interview when Donn is letting the country know of Sam. This means Sam's involvement or stance in Andromeda has value, and also why Merran would cooperate with Donn, BUT that's just me. Ha

I see I was being spoken of! This makes a bit of sense actually, although as of yet Merrarn has no official stance for who he wants for presidency. Except he believes Sam would drive America into the ground.

Speaking of the interviews, I will also be surveling the others for possible reason against or for them...so beware! Although he doesn't actually have many high levels who do this but he has plenty of people in the street.
