    The Voyages of the GCV- Antigone

    Fleet Commander Jonathan Mayfield had taken no steps to rearm and repair the fleet. The entire docking ring was full of ships. Some were fully repaired while others were about to explode. And all of the stationÔÇÖs repair materials were spread equally among the ships docked. Gardna had to personally see to the removal of the repaired ships from the station and the docking of the heavy damaged ships and the medical ships. His fleet would be ready for the attack. His door to his office beeped. ÔÇ£Come in.ÔÇØ Kevin came walking in carrying a stack of datapadds that touched his chin. ÔÇ£Here are the ship status reports you asked for, the Galactic Command fleet reports, and some paper work you have to fill out.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Just lay them on the coffee table.ÔÇØ Kevin dropped them on the table causing them to scatter all over the table. Kevin then jumped on the couch and stretched out. ÔÇ£By all means, have a seat.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Thanks, you know, on the way here I started thinking about the Antigone.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Oh? What about?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£I was thinking about Carla, Corey, Marcus, Danielle and the rest of them. Their helm must not have been responding. How they just plowed into that other ship. They must have seen it coming and couldnÔÇÖt do anything about it.ÔÇØ Gardna stopped working. ÔÇ£They arenÔÇÖt dead,ÔÇØ said Gardna almost as a whisper. ÔÇ£What?!ÔÇØ Kevin jumped up. ÔÇ£Antigone cloaked before she hit the other ship.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£But the other ship exploded.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Before they collided, I transported a missile into the Gammulan shipÔÇÖs reactor. That is what destroyed it.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£If the Antigone cloaked, where is it?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£I sent it on a mission, to convince the Zelons and Credians to help us. The Empirians and Vesperons wonÔÇÖt help us, and the Terran race canÔÇÖt survive under this brutal assault alone.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Why havenÔÇÖt you told anyone? This sort of info would be a major morale boost.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£What would happen if the Gammulans destroyed the Credians, Zelons, Kandorians and Mandorians on their way here? What if AntigoneÔÇÖs cloak failed and they were destroyed?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£You are as always right. That is why you wear the command pips.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Can you hand me the Galactic fleet charts?ÔÇØ Kevin looked around through the datapadds until he found it. ÔÇ£Here,ÔÇØ he said as he threw it to Gardna. Gardna caught it with one hand. ÔÇ£According to this, the entire Galactic Fleet, if we use every ship from medical to military we will have, 1245. According to the probes we would still be out numbered 3 to 1.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£They will control Earth by Friday,ÔÇØ said Kevin solemnly. ÔÇ£Not if I command.ÔÇØ Gardna got up and walked over to the prone Kevin on the couch. He kissed him ever so gently on the lips. ÔÇ£I do have one more assignment for you.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Urgh,ÔÇØ said Kevin as he rolled over. ÔÇ£This is the last one, after this you can go sleep wherever you want.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£QuÔÇÖest-ce que tu veux maintenant ?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£I want you to set up a conference call with the other fleet commanders.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Last thing?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Last thing, thanks.ÔÇØ Gardna got up and went back to his desk. Kevin rolled his eyes at Gardna, but he kept working. Kevin got up and left. Gardna had a devilish smile on his face as Kevin left.

    The Voyages of the GCV- Antigone

    Carla Mason sat on the bridge and waited. She had the handful of reports to read to distract her. She had always wanted to be a commander, but all this paper work made her regret it. Sir, a large fleet of military ships is moving this way. Credians and Zelons? Yes. Sir the mine field has just been deactivated. What are they planning? They could have agreed to the meeting and are about to escort us to their councils location. They could be deactivating their mines so they arent accidentally destroyed when they destroy us. Well we are about to find out; they are entering weapons range they arent firing. Hail Tamin. No response. Maybe they are waiting to board us, or get close enough so that the laser shots have the most intensity. They are at 5 kilometers and still coming. Go to condition yellow and raise shields to 50%. Sir they have passed us and are maintaining orbit around the jump gate. What is going on? Sir the starstation is hailing us. On screen. The face of Tamin appeared on the viewscreen. Lieutenant Commander Mason, the council has agreed to see you, please dock at the station. I can see them? how did you convince them? I had to make some sacrifices; one of them is that I have to leave the Credian system. Im so sorry. Where will you go? I dont know, maybe go visit the Mandorians. I could use a specialist who knows about this new form of government. Why would I want to join a crew filled with Terrans? Because you have no other choice. Thank you, I think I will. I will come onboard once you dock. Tamin out. Tamins face disappeared from the forward viewer and was replaced by stars. Helm set course for the station full sublight, and Mr. Aster prepare the guest quarters. After a few minutes the ship arrived at the station and docked without incident. Mason changed into her formal uniform and gathered her datapadds. She went to the transporter room. She had to meet Tamin and see him onboard then she had to wait for her guards. Her guards and Lieutenant Aster entered. She nodded at the engineer who operated the transporter. The engineer pressed a series of buttons. A tube of light appeared on one of the pads in the room. After it dissipated Tamin appeared. Tamin, Welcome. Permission to come onboard? Granted. I will be onboard the station if you need me; Lieutenant Aster will show you to your quarters. Thank you, and good luck. Mason stepped up on the padd with her guards. Energize. She appeared in a hallway of the station. Then a Credian with one Credian guard and one Zelon came from around the corner. Please follow me. Mason and her guards followed them to a large set of blast doors. Outside the door were numerous guards and automated turrets. After going through a series of tests to verify their identity they were allowed to go into the next room. They also had to leave their weapons in the other room. Their was one chair in the center of the middle of a half circle. The entire room was white. Mason moved towards the center seat and sat. The marines flanked on either side of Carla Mason. Then a door in the front opened and eight people walked out. They moved around the circle and sat in seats equal distance from one another. Their entire body was hidden from view. All of them looked exactly alike. Mason couldnt see the signs of the a common difference between Credians and Zelons. Zelons are much shorter than the 3 meter tall Credian. Credians also had three horns at the top of their head that met at the top to form a triangular pyramid. Carla Mason was about to speak then all of them stood up. They then said with one voice: Lieutenant Commander Carla Mason of the Galactic Command Vessel Antigone, why have you disturbed this council? Mason stood up and straightened her robe. I on behalf of the Galactic Command Council, ask that the Unified Alliance help us in vanquishing our common foe. We have heard of their ruthless attacks on your planets for we have felt the same attacks. The Gammulans are a malignant tumor on a Galactic scale. The Gammulans attacked every planet on their way to you terrans. It is this councils opinion that they have ceased their attacks on us, they replied in an eirie voice that made a shiver go down Carla Masons back. This is not going to be so easy, thought Mason.

    Can I get you something to drink? asked Kevin. hmm? answered Ben Gardna without looking up from the stack of padds he had on Kevins desk. I said can I get you something to drink? yeahwhatever. It is getting pretty hot in here, Im just going to strip nude ok? Well if you are going to, do it slowly, Jerk! said Kevin as he threw a pillow at Gardna. Ok if you want to play it this way! Gardna jumped up and tackled Kevin, throwing both of them on the couch. No I want to play it this way! Kevin kissed him hard. Ben pulled back. I thought you said never again. When I left you I learned an important lesson on my voyages, Never leave something when it still tastes good to you; someone else will take it. Kevin kissed him again. Fleet Commander Gardna it is time for your court marshal. Gardna looked up over the couch at the door. Two marines were waiting. He jumped up and so did Kevin. No, you stay here, make sure the fleet is repaired, said Gardna when Kevin started to follow him. Oh wait, your datapadd, said Kevin Thank you, The marines at the door moved out of the way when Gardna walked towards them. As soon as he passed them Gardna stopped and whispered to them. If you tell anyone what you saw today I will make sure you wish you were dead. Even if I am court marshaled I will make sure you wish you were on Gammula Prime. Gardna kept walking. The marines turned to each other and starred at each other then ran to catch up with him. It was a short jaunt to the conference room where the court martial would take place. Mayfield was nice enough to put it on the same deck as Kevins quarters. Gardna walked in a sat in a chair on the opposite end of Mayfield and two Fleet Commanders. The Court Marshal of Fleet Commander Benjamin Carlos Gardna on 3/5/ 3012 is called to order. MOTHER begin recording. acknowledged. The charges brought against the accused are as follows: disobeying a direct order from a superior officer and causing the destruction of the Antigone, Marshall, Marcus, Bonin, Petersburg, Monticello and the Corsica. How does the accused wish to plea? Not Guilty. Let the record show that the accused pleaded not guilty. Now the presentation of the prosecution case. The evidence presented against Gardna was overwhelming. But all Gardna needed was one piece which he had with him. Does the accused have any evidence against these charges? Yes, I would like to bring into evidence the record of court marshals against me. According to the record I have been court marshaled a total of 6 times. What does this have to do with the charges against you now, not ten years ago? I wish to show that I have been brought up on trump charges before, and that a member of the court martial council is biased and should be removed. You cant do this! Yes he can, proceed. All six of the times I have been brought up on charges, the officer who accused me was Fleet Commander Jonathan Mayfield. This same Fleet Commander Mayfield was engaged to my research officer onboard the Antigone. The Antigone was not destroyed. She cloaked before she hit the other ship. The Antigone left through the jumpgate to negotiate an alliance with the Credians and Zelons. We wont be able to win this war alone. It is my belief that the Fleet Commander is trying to hold me responsible for her death and that is what this court martial is about. Bringing me to justice for her death. Liar! You sent her to her death! You should have reassigned her to the station! She should have never been that close to the front lines! Marines please confine Fleet Commander Mayfield to the detention hold, where he will await his court martial regarding the slanderization of Fleet Commander Gardna and his psychological reevaluation. The marines aimed their guns at Mayfield. You wont get away with this. The truth has gotten away. The marines escorted Mayfield out of the room. So what do we do? Well, there seems to be only one thing to do. MOTHER let the record show that as of this time Ben Gardna is given command of Wraith and her fleet and the charges brought against him have been dropped. Acknowledged. Thank you. But we have work to do. I want both of you to head up repairs to the fleet. I will be in Operations if you need me. Gardna got up and left. Gardna to Kevin, report to Ops as soon as you can. Gardna out. His job had just been made a lot easier.

    The Voyages of the GCV- Antigone

    Antigone was one region away from the Credian Homeworld. The ion trails all led towards the Homeworld. ÔÇ£Now we see if our mission was truly founded,ÔÇØ said Lieutenant Commander Carla Mason while staring at the jump node. ÔÇ£All systems and hands are reporting ready, sir,ÔÇØ announced Ensign Cooper. All eyes rested on Mason, waiting silently for her to give the command. ÔÇ£Drop the cloak and take us in Mr. Cooper.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sir, we donÔÇÖt know what is on the other side!ÔÇØ replied Cooper. He turned around at his console and stared at her. ÔÇ£Follow my order Ensign,ÔÇØ For a moment Dave Cooper just looked at her in disbelief. All she did was stare out into space by way of the bridge viewer. When he figured out that she wouldnÔÇÖt change her mind he turned around and followed through with his orders. ÔÇ£Aye sir, cloaking system offline,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Engineering to Bridge, the cloak just went offline.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£We know, Bridge out. Take us in Ensign.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Engaging engines. Inter-system transit in 15 seconds.ÔÇØ Quickly, the ever looming jump node that haunted Carla MasonÔÇÖs dreams grew ever closer. Then a flash. A second of peace then the alarms blared. ÔÇ£Warning Mine Field detected!ÔÇØ blared MOTHER, ÔÇ£Sigma class mines detected.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sigma class?! All stop!ÔÇØ said Mason with surprise. Sigma class mines had a high detonation yield when destroyed and had turrets mounted on them to shoot at ships. ÔÇ£I am detecting over a thousand ships and counting!ÔÇØ said Aster who recently returned from medibay, recovering from injuries. ÔÇ£Who are they?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£One secondÔÇØ ÔÇ£We donÔÇÖt have a second, are they targeting us?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Not yet,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sir they are Credian and Zelonian ships, of all types. I am reading military, journalists, tourists, paramedics, diplomats, raiders, hackers, and a lot more.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Hail them,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£They are responding, audio only,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Ship, leave this system at once,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£That is it sir,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£What are we going to do?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Lets see,ÔÇØ said Mason as she paced infront of the viewscreen. ÔÇ£Wait! He might still be here and he should still have some influence,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Who?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£A friend, a good friend, someone we can trust, Lieutenant search the ships here for Credian diplomats,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£I have six ships meeting those criteria.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Send the list to me down here,ÔÇØ Mason sat down in her chair and brought up her command console. ÔÇ£This is it, Communications hail this ship,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£No response,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£As expected, send this message as text, ÔÇ£We are Starfleet officers, weird is part of the job,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sending message, we are being hailed,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£On scr-, wait,ÔÇØ Mason ran a hand through her hair then smoothed out all of the wrinkles out of her uniform. She then unzipped the top of her uniform a bit, just enough to show a little cleavage. ÔÇ£Just to give him a bit of a peep show,ÔÇØ thought Mason. ÔÇ£On screen,ÔÇØ A Credian Male appeared on the screen. By the stripes on his shoulder, it was known that he was a very high-ranking diplomat. ÔÇ£Why you blue blooded son of a Gammulan!ÔÇØ shouted Mason at him. ÔÇ£You half wit Valkerie scum!ÔÇØ the Credian yelled back. ÔÇ£Tamin!ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Carla! Where in the third moon of Gammula have you been?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Oh everywhere, Galcom knows how to keep a gal busy,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Speaking of busy where is that commander of yours? Drunk, I hope not? That man could never hold his Credian ale,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£He is not onboard,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£So who is in command? Not you? Galcom did not put a warship under the command of a little girl?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£This little girl certainly taught you a lesson of Io. You do remember. We decided to race fighters and you ended up-ÔÇØ Mason burst into a fit of laughter ÔÇ£Well put, your promotion is deserved.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Thank you. I need to speak with the Credian Parliament.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£There is no more Parliament.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£No Parliament? What happened?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Perhaps we should talk about this in person.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Fine, we will jump to you.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£No, I will come to you. Whose ship should we go to?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Well, we met in your ship last time.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£No we went to your ship.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£No, remember we all got drunk in your ready room and you ended up running naked around your-ÔÇØ ÔÇ£OK, I will come to your ship, Tamin out.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sir his ship is maneuvering to an intercept course.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£ETA?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£At their current rate, 15 minutes.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Mason to Marcus,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Marcus here,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£How are repairs coming along?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Most of the repairs are complete, we havenÔÇÖt however cleared the debris through out most of the ship.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£That is your new priority, I want deck one to be spotless.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Aye sir, I will send a team up immediately, Marcus out.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Alert me once his ship gets in range, I will be in the ready room.ÔÇØ Carla Mason went into the ready room to clean up the place. She had to make it look beautiful. Once she finished tiding up she sat down at the desk and pulled up the diplomatic protocols on her computer. She had to make sure she did everything by the book and pull every string she could to get Tamin to agree to let her see the government group. She had barely enough time to skim a quarter of it when her comm called out. ÔÇ£Bridge to Mason, they have arrived. They are asking permission to transport onboard.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Have the transporter operator stand by, I will go and meet them.ÔÇØ Mason got up and looked around the room. It was spotless. ÔÇ£This just might work,ÔÇØ thought Mason. She arrived in the transporter room a short time later. She ran her hand through her hair and down the front of her uniform. Then with a nod the transporter activated and one Credian stood on it. Carla Mason walked up to him and just starred into his eyes. She then lashed out with the back of her hand. He retaliated with his fist. Even with the severity of the hit Carla didnÔÇÖt move an inch. Tamin reached out and grabbed her in a big bear hug. Mason hugged back with equal strength. Just as quickly as the hug started it stopped. ÔÇ£So what is this about no Credian government?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Perhaps we should talk somewhere more private,ÔÇØ he nodded towards the flight engineer controlling the transporter. ÔÇ£Ok, lets go to my ready room,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£It was a short jaunt to the room that both of them knew and loved. They arrived in the ready room and both of them fell on the couch next to the window. ÔÇ£So what is this about no Credian Parliament?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Maybe I should start the story at the beginning.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Best idea I have heard today.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£As you know, due to my efforts, the Credian and Zelonian governments have never been closer.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Wait, due to your efforts? Last time I checked both governments wanted your head. If it hadnÔÇÖt been for the efforts of the commander and me you would be dead.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Anyway, a fleet at one of the outlying sectors of the Credian government facing the Gammulan Empire was attacked. The Credian government found the report. The fleet was massive. Even if the Zelons and Credians used their combined fleet it wouldnÔÇÖt be enough. They knew that they would attack the rest of their planets along the route to Earth and along with Zelona Prime. They warned the Zelons and offered them shelter in their inner sectors. The fleet that was attacked was ordered to continue fight while they evacuated the other planets. Due to their sacrifice, all of the civilians from the hot zones were saved. Both governments met and knew they had to create a new government. They created the United Alliance. As you can see, all of the moons are filled with refugees. The Homeworld itself is bursting with populace.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£But this has to be more than just a couple of planets on the outskirt?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£You are right. One of the first things the council did was order everyone back to the Homeworld and mine the gates as you can see.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Well, I need to speak with this Council.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Ha! I donÔÇÖt even know who is on the Council; no one is allowed to meet with them!ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Well you are going to need to pull some strings, pull some triggers and pull some engine exhaust.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£For you, I will try. Why do you need to talk to them?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Because in, MOTHER, how much time is left?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Fourteen hours, twelve minutes.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£When that time runs out the combined Galcom fleet will leave Lyrius and attack the Gammulan fleet. Either two things will happen: one, the fleet attacks and is slaughtered. Once the Galcom fleet is defeated, they will have a straight shot to Earth and her territories. Trillions will be dead. They will then turn their attention back towards the Credian quadrant. I doubt they will leave the Drodian quadrant alone. If were just their current fleet size and resources, I would doubt they could destroy the Drodians and the Syrions. But with over ┬¥ of the Galaxy under their control who knows. Or option two, I convince this new Unified Alliance to help us. Our combined fleets could crush them in the center. And if we decide to we will chase them all the way back to their Homeworld. And we make sure they are never become a threat to this galaxy againÔÇØ ÔÇ£You are very convincing, lets see how you do in front of them.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£I will escort you to the transporter room.ÔÇØ Tamin got up and left through the door and Mason followed behind. ÔÇ£Now if only convincing the council will be that easy,ÔÇØ thought Mason.

    Ben Gardna woke up to the sound three people talking. -disobeyed a direct order, -caused the destruction of over 28 ships! -would have been higher had it not been for him! You two will have to leave my medibay if you wish to continue your discussion! Fleet Commander Ben Gardna heard a door open and footsteps going away from him. Once the door closed he heard someone sigh then walk towards him. I am glad you didnt have to hear that, Who says I didnt? answered Gardna groggily. I assume you didnt read the briefing about the emergency feature of your wrist device, Well, I skimmed it. Next time you read it. It said that the function is only to be used when there are no major lacerations. Once you use the drug it makes the brain think it is still healthy so it continues to tell your heart to pump blood throughout your body until all the blood leaves your body. Thanks for the recitation Doctor Williams. And before you ask you are onboard the station. All I know is that you were beamed with the wounded and you had a priority marker on you. Thank you. The door opened and Gardna looked to see who it was. He tried to sit up but the pain was unbearable. From what he saw before he collapsed on the bed was of a sullen Kevin. Hey you, how are you feeling? Where is the Antigone, you were onboard it, oh my god what time is it? Whoa, whoa, whoa, calm down. I am sorry to be the one to tell you but she was destroyed with all hands except a couple of marines and three other pilots and myself. We were launched to protect and secure another ship before she was destroyed. I thought you knew, The time, what is the time?! Its 0145 hours, OK good, We still have 14 hours, 14 hours till what? Wait the Antigone was destroyed before the Corsica right? Yeah, OK I need to speak with Mayfield, Something tells me he will be right along. The doors to the medibay opened and Mayfield walked in, flanked by two marines. Commander Mayfield, we need to get the fleet back in shape, we have to- We have to do nothing, as of this time, you are under arrest for disobeying a direct order from a superior officer and causing the destruction of the Marshall, Marcus, Bonin, Petersburg, Monticello and the Corsica. They were part of the Wing you took to assist, whispered Kevin when Gardna looked dumbfounded at Mayfield. You will be taken to the detention hold until after we finish the Gammulans; when we will have your court martial. Why wait, said Gardna appealing to Mayfield sense of assurance, Lets start now. You know Galcom rules state that a court martial can only be held 36 hours after the charges have been given to the accused. You have never been a stickler for rules, lets get it over with. The sooner its done, the sooner you can send me to the penal colony on Io. Fine, you have one hour to prepare yourself. my guards will escort you to all the places you need. Mayfield walked out of the room. What are you going to do? Beat him at his own game. I need you to get me the station sensor data from the battle along with the data recorder from the Corsica. I will try. Thank you, one more thing, can I use your room on the station to work? Yes, and how did you know I had a room on the station? Mayfield wouldnt have reassigned someone who knew me to another ship, he will keep you separate from the battle as much as possible, and close to him, so that your testimony will be kept valid. Ahh, that is why you wear the command pips. Lets go, motioned Gardna to the guards.

    The Voyages of the GCV- Antigone

    ÔÇÿCommander Mason to the bridge,ÔÇØ called out MOTHER. ÔÇ£This is Mason, what is it?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£We have arrived in the Zelon systemÔǪyou may want to come out here,ÔÇØ Mason looked up from the computer and looked out of the window. From out of the window she couldnÔÇÖt see what the fuss was about. She got up and went to the bridge. ÔÇ£What do you want Lieute-,ÔÇØ said Mason before she saw the viewscreen, ÔÇ£Is thatÔǪ,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Zelona Prime, or what is left of it,ÔÇØ On the viewscreen were several parts that looked like they once fit together to make a sphere, or in this case a planet. There was a large fragment that looked to be the main part of the planet. It reminded Carla Mason of an apple with a bite taken out of it. ÔÇ£I know the answer but, any life signs?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£None, I am however not reading in organic material that would be from an intelligent species,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£So you mean you canÔÇÖt find any bodies or body parts,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Correct,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Where could they have gone?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Unknown,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£We canÔÇÖt stay here, we need to go talk to the Credians; hopefully they survived,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Setting course,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Wait, I want weapons signatures,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Working on it, it will take 30 minutes,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Jump in to a denser part of the asteroid field, and decloak the ship,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Aye sir,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Once that is completed I want a senior staff meeting,ÔÇØ Mason went into the ready room to prepare her speech. It had to be convincing enough to force the Credians to help them in there fight against the Gammulans. The Credians have always claimed neutrality whenever the Terrans and Gammulans got into any sort of fight. She had to change that. The thirty minutes passed quickly for Mason. She found a quote from the Treaty of Khan. She managed to build 10 more minutes of speech out of it. She saved it then left for the Conference room. When she arrived the entire senior staff was deep in conversation. They stopped once they saw Mason enter. ÔÇ£Lieutenant Aster, what have you found?ÔÇØ asked Mason as she sat down. ÔÇ£I have analyzed and reanalyzed the weapons signatures, I even had Douglas look them over.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Well who did it?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£The Schutz,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£How did the Schutz find their way into the normal channels? They kept to the flux fields because that is all they knew about.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Perhaps they came through one of the flux fields that are in a normal system,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Maybe, but I donÔÇÖt want to stay in this system any longer, Jump to the Wormhole towards Credia then cloak the ship before we go through,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£We should have enough radine and iridium to stay undetected until we get there The trip home is another story.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Alright we will work with what we have, dismissed,ÔÇØ

    ÔÇ£-to anyone, This is the Galactic Command Medical ship Munica to the Corsica, is anyone alive over there?ÔÇØ Gardna woke up to a pounding in his head and in his left foot. He couldnÔÇÖt feel his right. Slowly he opened his eyes and looked into the eyes of death. From what he saw he figured out he was leaning against the helm console. Directly ahead was the commanderÔÇÖs chair, or what was left of it. A support beam that fell had crushed the back and seat of the chair. It had swung down and crushed the chair to the back wall, where the map table was. There was a large fire on it. Gardna could see various dismembered bodies being consumed by the fire. Quickly he shut his eyes, but knew he had a new mission. Slowly he tried to figure out what worked and what didnÔÇÖt. He had feeling in both his hands. There were no broken bones. Next he checked his legs. He had internal bleeding in his left and his right leg was broke in two places. He activated his emergency mode of his wrist analyzer. All the pain left his body. The emergency mode released a chemical into the blood stream. It changed the neurons of the body so that they believed they were part of a healthy body. This made him immune to the pain, but for a short while. He crawled over to where his chair was. The actual chair was gone but the consoles attached to the sides of the chair were still there. He reached up and hit the comm button. ÔÇ£This is Ben Gardna,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Ben, my god, we thought we were dead, this is Karl Falman, are you alright?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£I am ok; give me a status report,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£The fleet managed to destroy the remaining Gammulans ships that were in the area. The Jump gate appears to have been disabled. No ship has been able to go through it.,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Good, now transport the injured to your ship,ÔÇØ ÔÇÿWe can get everyone but not you. There is a lot of radiation on the bridge that its interfering with our transporters. We are sending a medical staff to stabilize you and add transport enhancers.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£IÔÇÖll be waiting.ÔÇØ It only took a couple of minutes for the medical staff to arrive with their security escorts. They mended him as best they could then they attached a transport enhancer. Next thing Gardna knew, he was being swallowed up by a rainbow.

    The Voyages of the GCV- Antigone

    The Gammulan fleet sat silently at the gate to Lyrius. Unbeknown to them a Galcom ship slowly flew among them. On the bridge of the Antigone, everyone was tense. System engineers, repairing damage done at the Battle for Wriath, scoured the bridge. ÔÇ£Now what is the ship count?ÔÇØ asked Mason. ÔÇ£Current count is 3538,ÔÇØ announced Douglas at the tactical station. She had taken over tactical ever since Corey Aster was in Medibay. ÔÇ£Even with every ship Galcom has, we could never defeat a force that big,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£That is why Fleet Commander Gardna sent us to convince the Zelons and the Credians to help us. ÔÇ£Who even knows if they survived. The Zelon Homeworld is along the route to the Terran Quadrant,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Well we have to hope, how soon until we can jump?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Unknown, engineering is still having trouble with the reactor,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£We donÔÇÖt have enough iridium or radiation control units to travel at sublight speeds through out this entire sector. Mason to Engineering,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Marcus here,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£How long before we can jump?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£15 minutes,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Make it 7, Mason out. I am going to the ready room,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Wait sir, a ship seems to be attempting to track us. It is swerving around our ion trail,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£How, I thought I ordered minimal ion sigs,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£You did,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Commander, I donÔÇÖt think they are following our ion trail, but our connection to our two fighters. We still have a computer lock on them,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Get rid of it, disable the connection,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Connection disabled. The ship has stopped following us and has resumed formation with the fleet.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Marcus to bridge, you can jump when you are ready,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Excellent, navigation plot a course to the next jump node and transfer to the conn,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Course plotted and transferred to the conn.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Jump,ÔÇØ

    Also sorry if some of the specfics are off or stupid like the United Alliance that would never happen. Oh crap I haven't posted that part yet. hehehe Anyway enjoy! The Corsica gently exited hyperspace into hell. The wing of ships it had brought with them were already busy engaging the enemy ships. ÔÇ£Sir the AntigoneÔǪÔÇØ ÔÇ£I see it, Helm intercept course.ÔÇØ Gardna typed something on a pad and gave it to the comm officer. ÔÇ£Send this to Antigone using our highest encryption code.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sir, this is gibberish,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Your opinion was neither asked nor needed, send the message,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sorry sir, sending message,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Tactical destroy those ships,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£With pleasure sir,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Helm move us so that we take the shots,ÔÇØ The Corsica maneuvered so that it was directly in front of the Antigone. ÔÇ£Tactical officer, I want you to crack the transporter codes for the ship directly in front of us.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Aye Sir,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sir I am getting a reply from the Antigone,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Decode and route to my station,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sir I have their code, I can keep up with this pattern for 45 more seconds then they switch to a different band.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Move us from in front of the Antigone,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Aye sir,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sir the Antigone is moving in a collision course for that ship!ÔÇØ Transporter room, stand by to deploy the missile inside of their reactor. Comm give me a count down until the Antigone hits,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£10ÔǪ9ÔǪ8ÔǪ7,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Stand by Transporter room, ÔÇ£3ÔǪ2ÔÇØ Deploy,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£1,ÔÇØ On the view screen, the enemy ship disappeared in a ball of fire along with the Antigone. ÔÇ£SirÔǪboth ships have been completely destroyed.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Is there any evidence that it survived?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£None sir,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Good. Corsica to Hong Kong and Scylla, form up on us, Helm proceed to the jump gate.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£We arenÔÇÖt going to go through the gate are we?!ÔÇØ ÔÇ£No, Corsica to Hong Kong and Scylla change your shield frequency to the one I am sending you.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£They have acknowledged and have altered their shield frequency.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Have them move into a 20 meter delta formation with us.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£20 meters!?ÔÇØ ÔÇ£That will leave no margin for error.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Our three shields have created a static shield bubble.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Excellent, move us to within 50 meters of the Jump gate.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Aye sir,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Once we are in range have the Hong Kong and the Scylla route every deciwatt of energy to us. Route all of that energy plus our own into the ion disruptor of our ship. Have the ion disruptor fire at the exact opposite frequency of our shields. ÔÇ£Sir it will ricochet back and hit us!ÔÇØ ÔÇ£We are in position, Fleet Commander ÔÇ£Repeat fire IOD,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Firing,ÔÇØ The lights on the bridge dimmed and then flashed back on. All of the consoles flickered, trying to find the power to keep themselves running. ÔÇÿSir something is happening to the jump gate!ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sir the IOD is destabilizing! She was never designed to have this much power running through her for such a long time!ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Send a repair crew to it to make repairs,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Operating on it while it is online could cause harm to the repair crew,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Send them, maintain fire,ÔÇØ On the viewscreen the jumpgate flashed yellow. ÔÇ£Cease fire and have the Hong Kong and Scylla stop routing power.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Aye sir,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£LetÔÇÖs clean up, target the nearest enemy, intercept course.ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Engaging,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Sir, I think they know what we did, seven enemies are on a direct intercept course,ÔÇØ ÔÇ£Route all available power to shields, open fire.ÔÇØ The Corsica moved and engaged all seven enemy ships. The first wave of enemy ships consisted of 3 ships. After a concentrated missile, IOD and PTA fire the three ships were only flaming hulks. The next wave was larger, four ships. A combination of IOD, PTA and missile fire was spewed at the Corsica. She managed to avoid alot of the IOD shots but she was unable to evade the missiles and PTA. Quickly the shields were reduced to nothing; missiles slammed into the armor shattering it. The laser shots that scored hits on the hull scarred the hull and disrupted power. The missiles however not only shattered the armor but also pierced the hull. All over the ship alarms, blared announcing a hull breach was imminent. Then it happened. The left engine exploded in a shower of fire. Sparks and plasma spewed from the fresh wound. One missile went straight through the starboard IOD cannon. It exploded once it hit the back of it. It killed the repair crew working on it instantly. The shockwave from the explosions caused the bridge to shake so violently that Gardna thought the bridge would fall off from the rest of the ship. ÔÇ£Helm, get us out of here!ÔÇØ yelled Gardna. ÔÇ£Helm is not responding!ÔÇØ answered the pilot. On the viewscreen a ship was accelerating very quickly towards them. ÔÇ£Fire dorsal thrusters,ÔÇØ The ship slowly tried to duck under the colliding ship. However their efforts were thwarted. The enemy ship slammed into the top of the Corsica. The pilot managed to turn the ship so that it did not plow the ship in half. The enemy ship scraped the front part of the first two decks off. It kept going until it hit the starboard engine. It scarped that off and scraped the starboard side off all the decks. The last thing Gardna remembered was one of the support beams falling towards him.

    Thanks fox for the reply. I wasn't going to post anything if no one was reading it. Currently it is 80 pages long. And I really haven't done a proper edit. Anyway I will post some more for you.
