This is 30th century tech and I'm not the most tech savvy perin in the world to begin with. I think I'd rather just give Lightning Lad a good description of things and let him handle the questions and the rolls. I'll just let you put the words in my mouth when it comes to the description.

"Most of this ship is way beyond what I'm used to. Maybe you can help me make sense of this and tell me what I'm looking for. I'll start with the bridge and work my way back. There are four lizard-y looking fellows up front..."

Wish J'onn was here. Telepathy would be handy right about now.

Superman's description continued...

I'll be out of town for a week starting tomorrow. I'll be able to post from my phone but it will be less frequent. Don't let me hold up the game.

Superman nods and gives the ship a thorough sweep with his x-ray vision.

Superman shakes his head. "I guess we'll just have to ask them who they are working for since they're making eavesdropping unproductive. Lets take them in."

Gripping the hull of the ship, denting it with his fingers, he began to haul it through the void of space.

"Lead the way."

"Hold on and keep quiet. Please."

"To be honest, I think I was tricked into coming to your time, but now that I'm here I'm trying to help. Saturn Girl's been kidnapped by the Fatal Five, and that's just the beginning. I'll fill you in once we're done here. Hold on. I'm trying to hear their transmissions."

We'll do the explanations off camera once this scene's done. I assume you've been following the plot. :)

hearing: 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (11) + 15 = 26

Superman places his ear to the ships hull. Normally hearing in the vacuum of space was impossible, but the ship was still pressurized and sounds inside created vibrations. His super-hearing might just pick up anyone speaking inside...

Trying to hear inside the ship. :)

"So what now? Can we tow them somewhere they can await a trial?" Superman asks the Legionnaires

heatvision: 1d20 ⇒ 14

Posting from phone, unable to access sheet but didn't want to slow things down. Please add whatever is appropriate. I swear this is going to stop being an issue some day ;)

Whatever he aims at, I'll help with Heat Vision

"I'd be happy to." the man of steel says with a glint in his eye.

Quickly drifting closer to the craft, the Man of Steel watches Lightning Lad, ready to follow his lead.

"Are you alright?" Superman said to Matter-Eater Lad.

Superman watched the creature sail away into the blackness and then in a flash he was near Sun Boy, waving Matter-Eater Lad over and assessing injuries.

Do we have any way of speaking in space?

initial damage: 9d12 + 3d12 + 19 ⇒ (11, 4, 4, 11, 10, 10, 7, 10, 6) + (10, 3, 12) + 19 = 117 Holy ouch. Can I do my best not to kill him? Yes please on the knock back.

USD: 1d6 ⇒ 6

USD: 1d6 ⇒ 6

3d12 added to initial damage above

Moving at the moment, so I'm posting from my phone and don't have access to my character sheet. I'll just roll a d20 and trust you to add the right numbers

1d20 ⇒ 14

"It can never just be simple, can it... Superman thinks to himself. Speeding up, he threw his shoulder forward into a flight-assisted tackle intending to drive the beast away from the unconscious hero.

"I'll be there as soon as I can." the Man of Steel says, synching his Justice League navigator to the star-cluster they marked for him.

Striding out the compound, he gave a final wave, and pushed off into the sky.

Freed of the atmosphere, he no longer had to worry about the consequences of pushing himself when flying. He willed himself faster, becoming little more than a tiny red blur through the blackness of space.

Superman nodded with a smile. "Guess a holographic imager won't be enough? Guess I'm going to need directions."

"Well, my powers are closest to yours, Mon-El. Have a spare uniform I could borrow?"

"Well, your powers are closest to mine, Mon-el. With some kind of holographic imager, I could easily pretend to be you."

"I have no doubt that you can outsmart Tharok, Braniac. What can we do to help you with the project? "

"We have to rescue them. What about a Trojan Horse? Tharok already tricked me with one. Maybe we can too. Can we make face lightning rods?"

"If they have Legionnaires hostage, and we give them the lightning rods, couldn't they use them on the Legionnaires to kill them and bring back someone else?"

"It was disguised as a meteor. Our sensors revealed a life form inside it. When we opened the meteor it revealed technological components within it and released a strange gas that revealed an image of Tharok and rendered me helpless. It was very painful. The image of Tharok said it had stolen my soul."

"Braniac 5 called me here through a recording inside a strange meteor. The meteor also housed some kind of trap set by Tharok which... took something from me. I am not sure if the recording was a ruse, or if it was real and the trap added by Tharok after the message was sent."

A muscle in Superman's jaw twitched in frustration and outrage but he said nothing.

Once the image of Tharok faded he turned to those assembled. "What else do we know?"

Shaking the young Legionnaire's hand, Superman smiled warmly. "Lead the way."

Startled and blushing at the display of affection, the man of steel turned red for a moment. "It's.. uh.. good to see you too."

Following Dream Girl, he asked "Where are they being held?"

Even I can't make it that far in enough time to make a difference. Better find someone inside. I wonder if any of the systems here still monitor Justice League channels.

Making his way towards the entrance of the building and looking for a way in, Superman spoke into his Justice League communicator.

"Mayday, mayday, this is superman broadcasting from Legion Headquarters. Is anyone there."

"Hmm. Wherever this ship came from, it's crew were left behind and probably still in danger."

Making his way quickly inside, Superman attempted to figure out the ship's point of origin and and recent logs.

Yes. That seems to be where it was wanting to go before it lost control.

Scanning the ship with his x-ray vision as he gently set the ship down on the spaceport, Superman tried to assess what was wrong inside.

1d20 + 18 ⇒ (13) + 18 = 31

As if on cue... he thought to himself.

His cape streaked into a red blur as he flashed beneath the ship, grabbed the hull and lifted up, hard, to get the craft clear of the building.

What do I roll to catch the ship?

Everything looks alright here. Calm so far.

Touching down in front of the main doors, Superman simply knocked.

"I need to get to the 31st century. I shouldn't be gone long, relatively speaking."

Off to the future...

"Tharok. It was Tharok. Didn't know he could do that."

Do I recognize the cyborg?

"I... ow... yes. I can hear you. Did you see him? The cyborg? ...said he stole my spirit. Don't know what he did, but it hurt."

1d20 + 5 ⇒ (18) + 5 = 23 is that right?

Superman sighed. "Dianna, call off J'ohnn. I'm needed in the 31st century. Time travel always gives me a headache. This might take a while, or I might be back in a few seconds. Leave it to Brainiac to figure everything out, but forget to tell me how I'm supposed to get to the 31st century..."

Superman moved forward, looking for a way to open the meteor.

"Looks like something's starting to happen in there..." he said to no one in particular.

Standing his ground, the Man of Steel waited.

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (7) + 10 = 17

Fraid I'm at work and don't have access to the sheet i saved on my home computer. You'll have to add the intellect for me.

1d20 ⇒ 16

"Circuitry? Can the computers interface with it, or extrapolate a purpose?"

"It's lined with lead! No wonder I couldn't see through it. I'm heasitant to crack it open. If it's dangerous it will be released, if it's not it may have a bad reaction to our air. What do you think? Maybe we should call in J'honn or another telepath to see if it can be communicated with? I'm at a bit of a loss."

"Can you give me a full spectrum analysis of it with the Watchtower's instruments? I'm going to try looking it over myself one more time. I'll stay in the chamber with it."

Basically I'm trying to figure out what's alive about it. Is it alive, or is something trapped inside it? I use x-ray vision on it again.

"Lead the way Diana." Superman said with a smile.

"Inside the meteor? Whatever it's made out of must block my x-ray vision. I'm a little wary of releasing whatever it is out here, especially since I can't see it. I'm going to bring it up to the Watchtower so we can crack it open inside a containment cell. Be there soon. Superman out."

With an amused look on his face Superman flew back to where he'd tossed the meteor. Picking it up he said "No hard feelings, whoever you are in there.", mostly to himself.

Moments later he was exiting the atmosphere heading towards the Watchtower's airlocks.

1d20 + 13 ⇒ (6) + 13 = 19

Cosmos Master wrote:

"Wonder Woman here Superman. The Watch Tower detects that there was indeed a fairly small meteorite striking your location. Any signifcant damage? You must have a guest with you, I detect two life forms, yourself and another."

"Nothing the Fortresses systems can't fix. You sure about that life sign? I looked around and didn't see anything. Can you give me a bearing?"

Taking a moment to concentrate on his senses, Superman began to scan the fortress again.
