Guest Ron Wallin Posted December 16, 1998 Report Share Posted December 16, 1998 Cmdr.'s, here's the current situation: A full scale battle is being fought in Jupiter space. Wraith, Orion, ISS, Spectre and some Raiders are fighting side by side under the designation TDV (Teran Defense Vessel) to stop the first wave of Gammulan warships.Both the GCV Predicant and ICV Necromancer have been destroyed. But the fighting is slowing down and it looks as if the Terran forces will win this round but It's not all fighting that has saved the day. The Wraith's have laid a good deal of mines at the jump points between Polaris 2 and Jupiter saving countless lives in the process. However, the remaining 50+ Gammulan craft have been steadily removing these threats and are about to break through to Jupiter. The relative calm will soon end as the Gammulans again try to push their way through Sol space.This is not the only threat, though. Cmdr. Re'trat, one of the elite Insurgent Scouts, while checking on an anomoly at Mondial, witnessed an even larger Gammulan Armada comming through FLX-10. Unfortunately, all communications in this system are being jammed and he has yet to report this new threat on the other side of the galaxy. Fortunately, he will not be alone for long.Cmdr. Akira formed Strike Group Raven while the Insurgents were still massed in Sygan. Fearing a possible back door attempt by the Gammulans he jumped through FLX-06 in hopes that he would find nothing on the other side. We have yet to receive a report from Strike Group Raven.On the other side of the galaxy still, Cmdr. Gallion, Wraith Fleet, Corsair Wing Leader, is having problems of his own. His group is located at Regis VI in Regulus. Although he has lost two ships already, Cmdr. Gallion is currious about why so few ships have appeared in system to meet his threat. What he doesn't know is that the Gammulans are massed at Otura-6 in Omega Centauri, while they pass through FLX-10. Their ultimate goal being the base and refinery on Neptune.Unknown to most, GALCOM and the Emperions entered into a joint venture to create a synthesized form of Iridium. That was the purpose of the base on Neptune. It's cold climate and near Earth gravity in combination with mineral resources not found anywhere else within the galaxy, made Neptune the perfect location for this new process. The Synth-Iridium was originally designed to better GALCOM cloaking devices. GALCOM had yet to realize its full potential.EARTHCOM found out early in the process that this new form of Iridium was also a viable fuel source. It's properties allowed for quiter engines, and reactors, and more capable cloaking devices. This meant BC's could be made invisible to all but the most sensitive, rare, and expensive equipment. This new mineral was now their baby and no one was going to learn its new uses.In addition to the ship applications, EARTHCOM weapons developers created specs for a new class of missles based on the new fuel source. The new missles would be noiseless, and have cloaking abillity. When merged with passive acquisition, these missles could rip through a craft, detonate, and obliterate any target with impunity. The ramifications were unmistakeable.EARTHCOM would have a fleet of undetectable craft armed to the hilt with equally stealthy modified Vagrants. Any target they chose could be vaporized before a single communication left the system. Quiet in, quiet out, and no one would know ever know what happened.By whatever means the Gammulans learned of this new mineral and mining process. Because of EARTHCOM's tight control on information leaving Neptune, they now had the opportunity to acquire a technology that would make them truly invincible no matter the cost. -------------------That's it up to now, all. Cmdr. Ristar, DeSylva approved the base location change. I hope this doensn't affect your plans too much.For those Cmdr.'s new to this story, please read the following threads in order before you jump in.1. "Fun Part 4: More Fresh Meat!" 2. "-->Operation Snowball's Chance<--" 3. "Eve of the War"Many thanks to all those Cmdr.'s that have joined in this RP adventure and to Derek Smart for allowing this party to continue!
