A-Missions

{{I=Homecoming739.jpg=right=300=The typical "A-Team," consisting of Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Locke and Sayid, with Claire.}}
'''"A-Missions"''' is a term for when the primary survivors undertook a mission, such as capturing Ethan Rom {{crossref}} or escaping from the Hydra Island {{crossref}}. The term was coined by Charlie (a frequent mission-goer who, in his own opinion, fell short of being a member of the "A-Team") {{crossref}} and later referenced by Sawyer {{crossref}}. An "A-Mission" refers to a mission undertaken by the Nicknames''Lost'' "A-Team", which usually included a combination of Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Locke, and Sayid.

=LOCKE You want to tell me why you've been following me, Charlie?

CHARLIE Yeah. Quite simply, John, there are a lot of secrets around here, and I'm tired of being at the bloody kid's table. I got Claire's baby back. I didn't go swanning off to the Black Rock on the bloody A-Team mission, but I would have if someone had asked me.

=Definition= {{I=wereback.jpg=200=right=The remnants of the "A-Team," return to the Island on Ajira 316 to find their destiny.}} Charlie's definition is used for the purposes of this article. To be considered an "A-Mission", at least one "A-Team" member must be present for the entirety of the mission. The "A-Team" consists initially of Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Locke and Sayid. Sun became powerful after the Oceanic 6 and soon began to participate more actively in the off-Island "A-Missions." Ana Lucia, Ben, Juliet, Charlotte, Miles, Daniel, and Ilana soon joined them from the Tailies, the Others, the Freighter, and Jacob's bodyguards, respectively. An "A-Mission" is further defined here as a quest which departs from the main body of the survivors, and involves either rescue, assistance to another, or betterment of the survivor community as a whole. Therefore, missions such as when Sawyer went hunting for the boar or tree frog do not fall on the term "A-Mission" as these were personal quests. A mission by supportive or independent survivors is a "B-Mission"; an Others mission is an "O-Missions"; a Freighter mission is an "F-Missions"; and a mission by Widmore's team in Season 6 is an S-Missions. All are interpreted as reactions in the form of supplements or responses to the "A-Missions". ==Members== {="font-size13px; text-align center; background-color;" ="font-size11px; text-align left;vertical-aligntop; background-color;" ="font-size11px; text-align left;vertical-aligntop; background-color;" Imagekate-mini.jpg Kate , tracker "A-Team" missions, but as a secondary to Jack, Locke or Sayid.

Jack and Danielle, taking Ben with him, follow the blood-stained trail, but Kate thinks otherwise, as she found a different trail where she believed Naomi doubled back on herself. Naomi ambushed her viciously, holding a knife to her throat for the phone to contact the freighter for help, thinking the survivors had turned savage and killed her. Kate pleads not guilty, and as a result Naomi covers for the survivors before she finally dies. }}

On the way, they picked up another Charlotte, which led Ben to attempt murder against her - to no avail. Much to Locke's annoyance, the cabin had seemed to disappear from it's original PortalLocations and Ben remarked in-front of the group that Locke was lost. This lead Hurley to question his intentions about their Charlotte, but Locke re-affirmed his leadership and they continued on to the Barracks while covering his disappointment that he truly didn't know what to do next. }}

When they arrive, they discover Hurley stuck in a closet. Conning his friends, Hurley tells them that Locke went elsewhere and that they should investigate Ben's house, and when they do, Locke's group corners them and disarms them. Later, Locke and Sayid discuss their current situation involving the freighter team, and they strike a deal - Miles for Charlotte. Even though they lost Miles and Frank disparagingly says that Sayid cheated, the deal was the same.

Kate recruits Sawyer for help, who distracts Locke, and Kate breaks into his basement and takes Miles to meet Ben. Miles blackmails Ben, and reveals that the freighter knows about Kate's fugitive status. Even though Locke discovered Kate's betrayal and evicted her from the Barracks, Kate's overall objectives were completed so the mission was a success. =Although this mission was personal to Kate, the involvement of many people in her plans to receive the information she wants merits it as an A-mission. }}

At first, information on why they were there was given out sparsely, because as soon as they arrived, Desmond began to be effected by the Island's side-effects. However later the pair met the Captain Gault, who told them Widmore had commissioned the freighter and the supposed reason why they want Ben - because some of them believe he placed the fake wreckage in the ocean to deter Widmore into finding the Island. A few days later, Sayid and Desmond discovered Michael aboard, who was a spy for Ben, and they turned him into Gault. Before the two castaways realize that mercenaries were aboard, they made two trips to the Island and caused mass casualties. All in all, they did succeed in discovering some of the freighter's intentions and background, but time was too short to act upon it. = }}

When Ben refuses to leave the house, Alex is executed by Keamy. Enraged, Ben summoned the Monster and it attacked the mercenaries.

Before they can re-land on the Island, Ben moves it away to protect it, with everyone else still on it. The helicopter crashes in the ocean and that night they are rescued by Penny and her Searcher.

Ben gave himself up, but the Others, with the help of Kate and Sayid, overpowered them. Ben trekked back to the Orchid and with Locke they confronted Jack about their plan to move the Island. Jack deemed them crazy, however the race was on to save everyone before they did so, and he left with Hurley. When Locke and Ben descended into the actual station, they encountered Keamy but Ben killed him in revenge for killing Alex, despite the bomb linked to the freighter. Nevertheless, they continued on with their plan and Locke watched a new orientation video. Ben blasted a hole into an even deeper section of the Orchid called the Vault. Ben informed Locke that he himself needed to be the one to move the Island because the one who does so can never return. Ben descended into the Vault and turned the frozen wheel which moved the Island to an unknown location in space-time. Ben was The Shape of Things to Come. =Even though some people are stranded on the Island, the initial mission was to move the Island and Ben did so, and in turn he is inadvertently protecting everyone on it from Widmore. }} ==Season Breakdown== *'''Season 4 - Percentage Successful''' 45.5% (5/11) *'''Season 4 - Percentage Half-accomplished''' 45.5% (5/11) *'''Season 4 - Percentage Failed''' 9.9% (1/11) ='''Season 5'''=
