Nodding to Nikkie, he stepped into the cockpit of the Dropship and quickly checked the radar. Sam Jack Dunn was a veteran Dropship W/O, as well as someone whom had fought the Yautja many times. He knew them well. He also knew how to detect thier ships on radar, despite thier infamous cloaking systems. You had to crunch some serious numbers, and stare at the radar screen so hard that your eyes started to seriously water.
The Yautja used light-bending technology that had a similar effect to radar, although it wasn't perfect. A Yautja Clanship often showed up as a simple glitch on the radar, a ghost reading not dissimilar to some space dust messing with the sensors. More often than not, such a reading was overlooked as nothing important. Sam Dunn, however, didn't underestimate anything.
Also, the radar was scanning the inside of the ship, and although there was a fair amount of interference from the walls, Sam Dunn was getting a pretty good picture of the inside of the ship. Especially given his skills in radar technology -he'd been a Comm-Tech when he'd been with Omega Company- he was the first to realize that two of the airlocks and docking clamps were in thier active position.
That was odd. Surely that'd mean that the ship was venting air. Unless...
Ah. Cometh the man. Or, perhaps he should say, Cometh the Hunter. He had located the Yautja. He knew he had. There was nothing discernible on the scanner except for those docking clamps, except for a tiny little something that might well just be nothing. He pressed a button, and the radar veiw switched to another veiw, of numbers scrolling down the screen. He was looking for a certai...THERE!
Just outside the ship, next to those hangars. Two ghost readings. If he didn't know better, they might just have been nothing but space-dust and interference from the ship itself. If it weren't for the docking clamps, he might have overlooked it.
But Sam Dunn knew full well it wasn't just nothing. It was the enemy. "EVERYONE! Get in here, look at this shit!" He shouted, wanting everyone to know what was going on. This was important. It meant the stakes had just been raised.
POST EDITED: The Pred Ships were only detected due to the fact the docking clamps on the ship were active, pinpointing that there was something there.
I also edited that post in which the clanships were hit, too. Should fix things somewhat.
