anyone welcome to join as usual.

Sometime ago, during the First Gammulan War, 6 ships where launched from the Droidan starbase of Majoris. They would be known as the Omega Squadron and consisted of a BC MK 1, Nightstar, Firestorm, BC MK 2, Warmonger, and the pride of the squadron, the Omega 6, a Aestrom carrier.

The Droidan's notified GalCom of there purpose of a scientific mission throughout the galaxy. They went through Sol, Alpha Centauri, and Omicron Eridani but it was in Polaris where they meet doom. They ran into a furious fight between Galcom and Gammulan forces. The Gammulans, suspecting possible Droidan reenforcements, attacked them all and the squadron was seperated and crashed into various parts of the galaxy.

It was rumored Omega Squadron had originally been working in Obsidia. But why Obsidia? Wasn't there rumors of a crashed probe? GalCom dispatched the GCV-Invader and various other ships to searh for the missing squadron. However, on the opposite side of the galaxy, the Gammulans had there own plans.....

GCV-Invader

Commander's Log

Today we are sent on a mission to search for a lost squadron. This could finnaly solve the Galaxian mystery but noone is sure of that yet. I hope this brings back positive results.

UNKNOWN SHIP LOG

We have orders from high command to search of this squadron of lost Droidan ships. Personnaly I hate Droidans but command has notified me that I only need to search and recover these ships as soon as possible. We might find some useful weapon data. This I hope is true as we want our empire to rebuild it's military back to glory!

Commander's Log

We spent about 2 days in orbit around Actis V. We found nothing of interest on the planet but we found something peculiar in the nearby debris field. It was a floating nav computer, of Droidan origin, floating around sealed inside a peace of metal that was also of Droidan origin. This may help us further in the search but I can't shake off the feeling like another ship, not with us, is looking for them too......

UNKNOWN LOG

We are currently cloaked. I can only say we are stalking this GalCom ship. It may be of use to us.....

“We are on approach to genesis stardock sir,”

“Very well lieutenant, proceed on course,”

Commander Davis Ice stood in the shuttlecraft and moved to the front cabin where the glorious blue marble of his home world rose above the lunar terminator.

“A beautiful sight,”

“Yes sir, how long has it been since you returned to earth?”

“Too long, lieutenant, too long,”

The commander had spent most of his career out in deep space, charting star systems, surveying planets, and defending Galcom from incursions in the Credian quadrant. His ship was the GCV Hathaway, a beat up Garid class star cruiser with more light-years under its belt than ever intended, it was a fine first command. He had served on that ship for five years watching the slow buildup of the Gamulan threat to peace. Commander Ice had received some of GALCOM’s highest decorations and his crowning achievement was during the battle of Zelana where a combined attack force was thrusting into GALCOM space. He even had a maneuver named after him, but the battle was a draw and his ship was so badly damaged it was decommissioned. That was a year ago.

“A carrier Sir?” he had exclaimed in admiral Petroyev’s office.

“Yes fleet commander Ice, but not just any carrier, this one is top of the line,”

With a carrier and a promotion, fleet commander Ice was as surprised as any officer who thought he was stuck at a desk forever.

“there she is sir, the Indomitable,”

Davis Ice stood in awe of this awesome new ship. A Megaron class heavy carrier, the second in the line!

“A Beauty, truly a fine ship”

“Indeed sir, it is one of the most capable warships I have ever laid eyes on,”

Fleet Commander Ice could not have agreed more.

Commander's Log, GCV-Invader

After we had our talk we where sent off to Majoris, to see if we could find anything of interest. While scanning the planet we saw an unuausl burnt mark.

Considering Majoris looks EXACTLY like our home Earth, this caught our eye instantly. When we got there we found a startling site. The BC MK1 of the Omeg Six squadron. Apparently we ound this one had made it home but as we studied it deeper we found it's nav systems had been destroyed and it crash landed on Majoris.

Apparently it was there last flight. Wait a minute....I see several vehicles......10 ATVs. Wait....Now I see fighters....

RED ALERT! RED ALERT! GAMMULAN CRAFT SPOTTED. ALL CREW TO YOUR STATIONS!

January 27, 3010, entering Majoris space. 1210 hours.

The worn but strong hull of a nightstar carrier reflected the light of the local system's star. It carried no Galcom or insurgent markings, no military colors or motifs. It only had it's christening stencilled in decorative letters along it's port foreward prong. The rest of the 'Leo' was plainly battle-worn despite it's civilian appearance and the signs of frequent, though professional, repairs were evident.

"I've come across something interesting Sir..." It was Huber, a once ensign that has since become Caine's most trusted and skilled tactical offeicer. Several battles sharpened the man's wits and moulded him into a near brilliant tactician.

"Well don't keep me in suspense or anything." Caine was smiling. Most outside observers ould have thought he was laxx for keeping such a casual air on his ship. Ranks and proper names were rarely used.

Huber turned around in his seat after glancing at his console to double check. He was in his late twenties now, but still with chiseled features and a deceptively smooth build. "There are a couple ships in this system, and as far as I know there aren't supposed to be. None of our contacts on either side have said anyth-*"

The man paused as a lift door opened on the side of the bridge proper. It was Jo Shtann, first officer of the mercenary vessel. Her feline tail flicked to the side as she stepped into the bridge and to Caine's side, letting Huber continue.

"Neither side has told us about a mission here. ... and there is one more thing. They're fighting. The weapons discharges and energy flares are getting intense too."

Caine spent a moment in thought, running his fingers over the perpetual five o'clock shadow that clung to his face. After a moment he looked up at his feline wife. She could read his expression as if it was a theater-sized holo. He had been getting bored running minor errands for Galcom, and was eager for some action. Not that the last several months hadn't been interesting, having become an almost exclusive... business associate of the organisation.

"Bring us close enough to see what's happening Huber would you?" Jo's pleasent voice carried through the bridge, followed by the customary 'yes ma'am' as people returned to their tasks. It would only be a few seconds before they could identify the other ships. He only hoped he wouldn't have any trouble figuring who was on what side. Though if worse came to worse he'd save the one that was more crippled and sort it out later.

"How is our cloak?"

A relatively new officer immediately turned from her console. "Still inoperble sir. That pirate ship didn't do much damage, but what it -did- do was in the sweet spots."

Caine nodded once. "In that case I want active scans running when we arrive. I don't want to enter a schoolyard fight and find out someone brought their whole gang. Put the PTA on standby as well, missile-defence."

[/rp]

heh for the life of me I can't remember the name of the feline race! *slams head* Was it the Vesperons?

*anyways* It's been a loooong hiatus for me but I hope that these boards are still active! ^_^

Exiting Majoris atmosphere

"Damage report?" I yelled

"Not alot sir but our shields where worn down a bit." my tac officer reported

"Anything else I should know?" i said

"Well sir. On Feburary 1 they are launching science shuttles, shuttle MK 2 class, ships." my first officer said.

"You know there names yet?" I said.

"Well sir. They've been named Challenger and Columbia."

The bridge went silent for that moment.

I broke the silence, "We will be there that day. To honor the crew who died those fateful days. What did we recover?"

"The Omega 1's commlink log as well as ship logs." my first officer responded.

"Good. But I believe we are one of the only ships on this mission....Give me tacops." I said.

I looked at the sreen represented infront of me.

"Identify that nightstar carrier." I said.

"The UCV-Leo sir. Mercenary."

"Notify Priem fleet high command of this. Perhaps we can use some help." Isaid.

"Yes sir."

to the crews of the Columbia and Challenger.

I will never forget.

Hey guys im going to switch back and forth from my marine to a commander

[RP]

Kalshion sat in the Command chair of the Medical BC MK 1 'Lositania', We where on a Galcom medical mission to carry supplys to another colony.. who would've thought we would run into another Galcom ship in this sector.

"ID of that ship if you will",I turned toward the screen,"Sir! its the GCV - Invader",I sat back in my chair, then something caught my eyes on the tacops display,"Whats that...",I said yelling at my tacops officer to enlarge an area around the Invader,"Sir.. its look like a scatter field", I rightened myself,"Only Cloaked ships deplay that type of a field.. how close is it to the Invader","To close sir.. if they where to fire. The Invader would lose its engines even with there shields up","Anyway we can warn them?","No sir.. our communications is still down after the beating we took in Gammulen Territory.. plus don't forget.. we are also being chased by the Gam's as well","Well at the very least do we have weapons!?",I yelled a bit agrivated,"PTA system is at full power, Main guns are operational and awaiting targetting information", Kalshion got up and glaced at his crew,"Launch our remaining fighters.. order the pilots to defend the Invader","Yes sir!", my com's officer said turning back around and typing in the commands, my 2nd in command walked up to me,"Are you sure about this sir? if that cloaked vessel turns around where almost certainly dead.. we have no sheilds","We may not have sheilds but we have a very experienced crew", I said pointing at the cloaked vessel, that must've noticed we spoted them cause it then vanished completly from tacops,"They know we spoted them. But if they've scaned us then they know we can't single the Invader

Meanwhile on the marines deck of the Lusitania

"Move it Marine!!", a Sargeants voice boomed across the deck,"Seems we might go into actions.. the Commander wants us to capture an enemie ship that he might be able to disable, we will get there via shuttle crafts. Our fly-boys will shoot the bay doors off of that ship and destroy the shuttle's inside so we can land", The Sargeant dismissed his marines.. he walked up to a comray,"Where ready when you are sir","Good.. be ready we don't really know if we can even disabled them sense there cloaked.. where hoping they attack us so our fighters can disabled the engines then the weapons and soon after the shuttle bay doors","Sounds like a plan to me","Lets just hope it works"

Mean while outside the ship near a moon, a lone fighter stayed there watching everything

"What should we do.. we can attack that Nutral vessel to draw the Galcoms attention away.. or we can attack the already cripped BC MK 1", a female in the fighter said as she was lining up there missles

[/rp]

The BC MK 1 in my post is a modifed Battlecruiser MK 1 that can carry more injured but also more cargo. Its had some stuff removed from the interior.

Majoris Orbit, Engines running

"Sir, another ship has entered in. It's the GCV-Lusitania. They are deploying fighters to escort us."

"Something's up. Launch our fighters and get ready for anything."

Ship Decloaking!

"Damnit! We can't see it! Turn about!" I said almost as instinct.

As my sleek, manueverable Invader turned to face it's adversary, we saw it caught off guard.

"Fire!"

My ship fired its cannons and some missiles at the surprised Gammulan Aestrom.

"Negative on that last launch!" one of my pilots reported.

"Lasers only. Cut it apart with cannon fire and p.t.as!"

I saw behind the ship my fighters and the Lusitania's fighters punding it with laser fire. Before long I saw it had been weakened to no shields.

"Beam the marines!" I bellowed again.

I saw the Lusitania beaming its mariens on as well.

"Stay alert. Anything can happen."

We beamed about the enemie Gammulen Asstrom, and by the looks of things so did the Invader,"Stay sharp", The marine sargeant said as he crept through the corridors.. his group of 6 marines behind him, Kalshion was at another part of the ship, he had 5 marines with him,"Come on come on.. where is the bang where suppost to here"

outside the enemie ship

The Lusitania's fighters kept attacking the bay doors till finialy they blew off.. Gammulen bodys floated out of the bay,"Damn it.. they must've not presurrized it.. those idiots", one of the pilots said in disgust.. a Shuttle MK one flew by them and landed, its bay's opened up and the rest of the Lusitania's marines walked off

Near Kalshions postion

A group of Enemie Marines was walking down the same exact hall as Kalshions and his marines where,"Ok men stay tight", I said turning the corner for a second the enemie marines and I made eye contact.. both sirprised to see each other. A marine behind me grabed me and pushed me back just as the enemie marines opened fire,"Thank you", I said a bit embarressed. We ran back the other way to where there was obsticals to shield use.. the enemie marines followed and started attacking us.

outside the ship

The Lusitania was stationed just a couple ok KM's from the enemie ship.. they where holding it in a tractor beam, both fighters docked to rearm and refuel.. When they got on board they found chaos, one of the pilots opened his cockpit,"What the hell happened here?", Lt. Markous said as he steped down from his fighter, Ensign Uraki did the same,"Looks like a fire fight insued",Markous looked at Uraki.. fearing that there might be marines on board, a ship wide alert was sounded..

ENEMIE MARINES ON DECK ONE NEAR THE BRIDGE!! ALL MARINES RESPOND TO THIS LOCATION!

Although Markous and Uraki where not marines they where still armed.. they made there way to the bridge.. as they passed through each corridor they found body's of fellow officers.. including the Eng Officer who was barly alive after taking several shots

Majoris Orbit

"Condition?"

"Normal sir. GalCom confirms we have permission to go through that mysterious wormhole." my first officer responded.

"Keep weapons primed. This is a turbulent area we're about to go through."

"Yes sir." my first responded.

"Condition on the Lusitania?"i said.

"They have intruders at the bride. Mariens already prepped sir."

"OK. Be alert."

The situation on the bridge turned despret, the officers continued there defense, but for every 3 enemie marines they killed 8 more took there place,"We can't stay here!", one of the officers announced,"I know that..", said another looking around the bridge, she spoted another door and made a break for it, taking laser fire to her side but she continued despit the pain. They all ran to the door and watched the enemie officers type in a code

SELF DESTRUCT SEQUENCE HAS BEEN ACTIVATED ALL CREW ABANDON SHIP!!!

"Shit!", one of the officers yelled out, getting the attention of the other marines, she ran over to another com station,"Commander! Commander come in please!"

Back on the enemie ship

"SIR!!!", I jumped back into the wall riping his com device off his shirt, clearly his ears hurt now he looked at the com device and put it back on,"DO NOT YELL!!! You know how high these things have to be set to hear someone during a fight?",Sorry sir!! Enemie Marines have overwelmed the ship, SD has been activated! we need-", one of the marines ran up to I,"Sir! the Lusitania shes... shes....", I turned around,"Spit it out Marine!","She's drifting toward us!! her engines must've been taken out!", I looked around,"Alright marines we're outta here get back to the shuttle!"

We ran along the hall leading to the shuttle craft... other eneme marines and crew just ignored us and ran to the escape pods, we ran by the com and nav rooms.. then stoped and went back.. I looked around the Com's room and found a data disk intitled 'communications log and other logs', I grabed the disk and ran into the Nav room, I found another disk intitled 'navigation charts,cordinates, and planetary locations'. I grabed this disk and ran with the rest of the marines to the shuttle, when we got there,we got a sirprise... 5 MK 1 shuttles.. all belonging to the enemie where all preped and ready for launch, against my better judgement we seized the shuttles and left 2 of them behind for the invaders crew to use. We flew out of the hanger, but the Lusitania's own hanger bay was damaged so we couldn't land.. I got on the mic,"Lt. Salvo seperate the main drive section from the bridge.. the bridge holds the explosive charge needed to blow up the ship! do it now and we'll... ahem... you will be able to save the ship",I heard something that sounded like an ok.. we watched as the little section,the bridge, broke off and slamed into the enemie ship.. our own ship was now under our control... but limited control.

"She's going to blow!", one of the marines said looking at the enemie ship.. I looked into my pouch and pulled out the data disks,"The Invader crew can use these... open a com with them and request landing with them so we can give them these disks.. we'll need to tow our own ship to another station.",the marine turned around and stared at me,"Yes sir!"

UCV 'LEO', Bridge.

Caine cursed as his ship slowed to enter the already raging battle. A Gammulan ship had decloaked, and was launching volley after volley of missile and laser fire despite already having taken heavy hits. The occasional glint of metal hull told that there were fighters involved as well.

"Bring us in from six, come straight down from above the mess so we can make the buggers worry. ... Huber, any ID's yet?"

Huber was furiously tapping commads as he scanned the battle that lied still several hundred kilometers away. "Not a problem. We have two Gal-contestants. A converted med-ship, and an old friend from our outlaw days. The Invader. The gammie has already lost shields, but nothing's red on it's hull yet. ... wait... there's another one out there I think."

Caine glanced towards Jo, who was intently watching the darts and flashes on the display. They were only two hundred clicks away now. "Well?"

Huber nodded once to himself. "I could have sworn I saw something else out there. It must have been an echo."

There was a dull thoom as the ship lurched suddenly, a spot of brightness illuminating the carrier's hull as a missile impacted. "Looks like there's no need to knock! The gammies aren't wasting iny time out here!"

Caine stood and began moving towards the bridge lift. "Get a signal to the two friendlies, letting them know that we're on their side so they don't shoot up our asses as well. I'm going to my wing."

Jo was already in the steel-and-wood captain's chair as the lift doors closed, and she said a quick voice-only message to the two Galcom ships.

----------------

---------

Galcom ships, this is first officer Jo Shtann speaking for the nightstar carrier 'LEO'. Do not fire upon us. We are here to help. Repeat we are assisting do not fire.-*"

A male voice suddenly cut into the communique. "A second cruiser has come to join the pa-"

*end transmission*

----------

-----------------

"A second cruiser has come to join the party Jo!"

Jo twisted towards Huber after hastily ending the message. "What the hell do you mean? This isn't your ghost is it?"

The ship's rocking under a hail of missiles answered her question. It was a good thing that Jo knew what she was doing. Her prowess in this sort of large scale fight was near legendary ... at least among the Leo's crew.

"No, this is coming from the opposite direction! It's coming in at 30-30 degrees, and right up our backsides Jo!"

"Turn sixty port and uncouple the pta. I want that bugger in my arc now!" Jo barked the order as a hand slammed down on her mini-consol. In an instant targeting displays and power readouts of the four IOD cannons came to life. The cruiser was gammulan, that much she knew. But she hadn't seen the model before. At least it wasn't the biggest ship she had ever seen.

"Caine this place just got a whole helluva lot hotter! It looks like a Gammulan light carrier but the navcomp can't id it."

Caine had just strode into the already bustling flight deck when Jo spoke, and he placed a finger to the small blue jewel that rested in his ear. "Got you Jo. Keep the pta focused on missiles or we're toast. Out shields are still at only fifty and we're just entering this fight."

"Sir, saber is ready to do a little cutting. Fully charged and maxxed out." It was Caine's flightman, Johnson. He was standing beside an old interceptor. The model had a lighter missile load than the latest models that dotted the rest of the bay, but it was always his favorite.

The bay shuddered as the Leo was hit again, a warhead having managed to sneak through the PTA. "Launch damnit! Time's a wasting ladies!"

Caine climbed into the pilot seat of the two man ship and powered up while his 'co climbed in. In a moment they had launched, the first of five that made his combat wing. There were more ships nestled in the LEO, but they only came out when butts needed saving.

[/rp]

I apologise now for any mistakes I make. ... it has been ages since I got a look at the manuals. Caine is piloting one of the old (as in from 3000ad) interceptor-styled two man fighters. It was his first, and hasn't failed him yet. The other four are the standard attackers for the carrier.

The action was unfolding quickly. I quickly responded to the situation.

"Sir! The Lusitania's bridge is no more! Sergeant Kalshion is requesting to board our ship." my tac officer reported to me

"Let him dock." I said. My voice was calm

"Sir we are receiving a message." my comms officer told me

"Put it through." I said.

*transmission begins*

Galcom ships, this is first officer Jo Shtann speaking for the nightstar carrier 'LEO'. Do not fire upon us. We are here to help. Repeat we are assisting do not fire.-*"

A male voice suddenly cut into the communique. "A second cruiser has come to join the pa-"

*end transmission*

"A cruiser? Its probably Gammulan. Majoris should be giving us some reenforcements by now." I said.

"Yes sir. Majoris has sent a Warmonger and a Questar. Any further order sir?" my tac responded to me

"Give a signal for all marines to evacuate the Gammulan Aestrom. And those Gammulan ships. Cut them down now!" i said.

We instantly got our marines back and we saw the marines of the Lusitania transport to the section of the ship still intact.

"Sir Kalshion has docked within us." my tac responded.

"Ok. Take down the Aestrom!" I said.

The Invader's weapons came to bear on the Aestrom. The Aestrom, too weakened to fight, was now still trying to make some type of escape. Before any of that could happen my ship cut it down and its explosion was huge.

We saw a shuttle escape but we might as well let them go as we have a cruiser to fight now. I saw the cruiser, type Starcarrier, was putting up a good fight. By now the Majoris ships had reached the fight alongside the UCV-Leo.

"Sir Kalshion has reached the bridge.Wait...Intruders on board!" my tac officer said hastily.

Just then Kalshion and his marines arrived at the bridge. He was a good distance away from the door when the enemy marines came in and attack.

My crew had been through this situation before. We all responded instantly and cut down 3 intruders. We saw a intruder began to make his way out of the bridge running. One of Kalshion's marines got him.

"Take him prisoner. We'll question him later. Now, attack the Starcarrier!"I said

Now with an extra ship in the fight. The Invader and fighters jonied in on attacking the Starcarrier.

heh methinks the gammie be dead. *wiked grin*

[rp]

The LEO spun about in space as maneuvering jets flared to life, IOD fire glancing just past the ships hull as it's PTA tracked missile after missile. Jo concentrated through the heavy weapons flashes, and the shudder of the ship as inertia and laser impacts took their toll. The gammulan ship came into line with the retical and Jo began fire. Blue-white bolts of supercharged plasma pulsed out of the ships four batteries, strafing along the length of the starcarrier. The starcarrier's shields flared in series from the stern to the fore as the LEO's reticle moved past the large ship. Huber didn't need any order as the counter came their way, and he fired the engines hard to get them moving.

"Shields are taking a beating Jo!"

The feline gritted her teeth as the thrumm of impacts echoed throughout the ship. A status display showed their starboard dorsal as red already, and their fore turned a bright orange as a missile made it through the PTA. "Once we're moving cut the engines, and use the thrusters to line us back up with our friend!"

Huber smiled to himself as he let out an affirmative "Aye." The maneuver let the ship use it's inertia to slide sideways through space while still firing on the enemy.

"Jo, we're clear of the bay and moving in. And it looks like reinforcements have arrived."

Caine checked his ship stats as he and his wing took a classic wedge formation. The other carrier had already launched its full compliment, and they were well on their way to the fight.

"Alright ladies you know the drill. Close and hard, one ship one missile then we blow through and make them chase us. It's almost three to one right now so watch your asses."

Caine heard a chorus of Aye's and a couple jeers as they all punched the throttle. He was already lining up with the gammulan lead. In seconds five missiles would be fired, and hopefully five gammie ships would take some damage before they would be passed by.

meanwhile on the GCV-Invader

I handed the Navigation Disk and Command Log disk that I took off the enemie ship,one of my marines steped out began to say what I was just about to say,"You guys might be able to decript these disks, We would do it on our ship but umm as you can see.. we kinda have no bridge right now",Commander Jason took the disk and said they would do what they could, My marines and I saluted the commander, even though he was of same rank as me we still saluted anyway, We made our way to the Invaders hanger, got into the shuttle and lauched

mean while on the Lusitania

"FIRE IN THE HOLE!!!", a marine shouted throughing a frag granade down the hall, the ship was now falling toward Mojoris, heavly damaged and unable to move..

A granade exploded and it was all silent again, a marine attachment from one of the allied ships had beamed aboard and was attemping to help retreive the ship, however with no way to stop the engine from overloading it was doomed from the start, the enemie has started a core brench when they discovered that they wouldn't be able to SD the ship.. now the only person who could undo the core brench was now dead.

outside of the Lusitania

I pulled along side the ship, not even realizing that the core was about to explode and that we would be caught in it, we went around the hull and came to the other side where 4 gammie fighters stared at us,"Oh shit....", I said taking in what I saw,"SIR ABOVE UP!", The pilot yelled as a squad of unknown fighers came down firing there missles and scoring direct hits on the gammie fighters, I ran through the ID and found that those fighters where from the UCV-LEO, I smiled, they circled around the shuttle and spoted 3 more gammie fighters sneaking up on our rear, they attacked and soon 3 more gammie chasis's where floating in space, I saluted the fighers, even though they didn't know it, and told the pilot to dock, just then every alert light blinked on the shuttle alerting us to danger,"either we've got a cruiser nearby or something about to go boom-",The pilot cut me off,"Sir its the Lusitania! she's going to!!!","Turn this shuttle around get us the hell out of here!!", the pilot tapped in the command's, the shuttle turned around so fast that the nose bent inward and the nav dish was crushed we proceeded away from the Lusitania,"Sir we got another ship coming into the sector... The ship was the one that command was going to hand over to me due to our original ship being out of date and almost impossible to fight with however,

"Impossible! command told me she wasn't going to be ready for another 2 months!", I looked at her, she was a quester class ship brisiling with gun ports and missle bays.

We where so mezmerized that we didn't know the Lusitania exploding behind us.. the shock wave caught us and flong the ship forward.. our new ship activated its tractor beam and caught us, her name was the same as our's except with one little extention ' Lusitania MK 2 '

We where brought aboard, myself and my marines where knocked unconcious.

Alfa-wing, UCV 'LEO' command.

Caine gritted his teeth as his ship bobbed and weaved along its flightpath. Laser-fire flashed past him and his wingmates as they closed, still holding fire.

"Whites of their eyes gentlemen. Don't give them a chance to blink."

The larger wing of gammulan ships suddenly broke their formation just as Caine reached combat range, and he cursed as three turned off to take out a shuttle that was trying to dock with the crippled Lusitania. Another three went towards the new arrival, while six maintained their course towards the Leo.

"Shit, Caine what now?" The voice chirped over Caine's comm channel as his wing threatened to divide.

"Maintain formation damnit! Ram those missiles down the lead group's throat, then we break to take the two of three. Jess, Kale, homes, you get the ones going after our new contestant. Lionel you're with me."

There was a swift aye as the range ticked down. They were only a few hundred meters away now, and the laserfire was getting more furious. An SS missile blazed past Caine's cockpit, and there was a flash as it impacted one of his wingmates. Jess' ship rocked and spun for a few seconds leving him to fall behind.

"Hold fast!" It was all Caine could say. His ship was straining to keep up with his constant course shifts. ... 200 meters... 100 meters... 50... 20.. "Fire!"

Five ships belched out five ship to ship missiles at point blank, each one locked onto a different ship ahead of them. The black-and-orange warheads streaked the distance between them in an instant as the gammulan fighters made to bank. Five missiles, five ships, five explosions in the coldness of space, and then Caine and his wing buzzed through the enemy formation as they fought to regroup. The missiles caused heavy damage to the enemy ships, disabling one and destroying the engine of another. Caine smiled as his own formation split.

Jess, Kale, and Homes veered right, pulling a 180 before burners fired and they started chasing three of the gammulan fighters. Caine and Laionel banked left, burning hard to get to the crippled cruiser. The gammulan ships were waiting for the shuttle as it rose over the hull line, weapons powered and trained. They weren't even bothering to watch their scanners, or their backsides. They -had- to be rookies.

A burst of laserfire erupted from Caine's ship, scoring shield-flares and then impacts on the lead gamulan fighter. It banked hard, but already the hull was sparking and near black with carbon-scars. It was a simple matter for Caine to finish off the ship. From the whooping over his channel it seemed his wingmates were having similar victories. Six down and five near crippled. Things were looking up.

"Caine! The Lusitania is about to-*"

Laionel's transmission was cut off as a flare lit up space to Caine's side, followed by a hard concussive force that launched debris in all directions. His ship was tossed around like a leaf in a storm, and a smaller flare among the flying debris told him that Laionel had been caught in the shockwave. Alarms and displays were going haywire in his own ship, and a cascade of sparks flew from behind him. His co-pilot yelled in surprise and started doing what he could while Caine fought to ride the wave out.

UCV 'LEO'

Main bridge

The LEO rocked hard as the concussive wave washed over her. The ship groaned as it was thrown off axis, the heavy thongs and clangs of debris impacts echoing through the decks. The main display fuzzed out as the EM radiation overtaxed the ship sensors, and a power surge erupted through the ship.

Within moments damage reports and displays flickered back to life, along with the main screen and tactical displays. Unfortunately the PTA had ceased firing, and gammulan fighters were closing fast.

"Johnston! get that PTA back up!" Jo yelled in frustration, and her hand tightened over the gunnery controls.

"It's no good, the targeting comp was hit by the power surge Jo. Reroutes are trying but they can't keep up!."

The engineer's information was punctuated by the explosion of a missile on the ships armored plating, sending another small shudder across the reinforced plates.

"And to make matters worse fore shields are down!"

Jo snarled to herself and squeezed the trigger, sending another volley of blue-white bolts to greet the cluster of small fighters. They banked as soon as the main cannons came to bear, knowing all too well what came from it's business end. The ships were forced to scatter, but none were hit.

"Port ten, starboard thrusters."

The LEO rolled as the ship engines burned bright, and it launched forewards towards the gammulan carrier. Jo let loose a stream of IOD fire as a pair of heavy warheads bolted from it's underside. The laserfire flared against the gammulan's fore shields again and again as the missiles closed, and Jo glared at the cruiser as if her look would make the shield drop faster. The dispersal flares across the shield face shuddered, rippling like water before finally giving way entirely. Jo breathed a sigh as she watched the pair of missiles slip to the banking carrier, impacting just below the bridge and ignighting in brilliant flares of oranges and reds. Just then IOD and missile fire erupted from above and to the side of teh LEO. It was the reinforcements. Again shields flared as now the gammulan ship's starboard side was brought down, and a volley of missiles soon followed to impact the cargo decks. In the wake of the explosions were obvious craters through the ships hull, and bits of debris that floated away from the ravaged steel.

"Enemy forces are retreating Jo, do we pursue?"

It was Huber. The man was sitting at his console, waiting for Jo's order. "...No, let them go. Issue docking clearance and get our forces back in here.

In the wake of the battle the LEO found Caine's ship drifting, and it was towed into the LEO as the three surviving ships entered their respective charge bays.

-------------

UCV 'LEO'

Medibay

"We were almost clear when a piece of debris caught the main stabilizer and port engine. Everything died on me, including my co-pilot."

Caine was sitting on one of the med-bay's beds, his arm secured in a quick-cast and sling. He had a couple cuts across his face, and a large bruise on his left arm, but otherwise he wasn't the worse for wear.

"Not one of my best excursions huh, Jo." Caine managed a smile to his feline wife, who was standing nearby. "But, we have some answers to get."

-------------

UCV 'LEO'

Bridge

"Huber, open a channel with the Invader." It had only been a few minutes after the battle, and thankfully his engineers had already gotten the ships systems back to 100%. The hull, however, would be more difficult to repair. As would their shields.

The man nodded and hit a few buttons.

---------------------

This is Dominik Caine, Captain of the 'LEO'. I believe you people have some explaining to do. Like why you were this far from home, checking out a dead planet, with Gammulan warships stopping by to say hello.

------------------------

As Caine awaited the reply he wondered what sort of response he would be getting. He was still a merc after all, and most of Galcom didn't like him. It was only because of Commander Foss that he was even still out of a penal-palace to begin with, which was Ironic because the man had been hunting him for two years before then.

Bridge of the Luisitania MK 2

"Sir! the battle is over, gammulens are retreating and one of our shuttles has discovered something on the planet..",the coms officer reported,"Alright.. send the 23rd OMB down there to assist, they have the equipment also send a few system engs they might be able to help", a figure in the command chair said,"Aye Sir"

The doors parted and I walked in, my arm was in a cast and I had a patch over my eye. I looked at the new comer on the bridge, my officers where already here,"Welcome to the New and improved Luisitania sir!", My new 2nd in command said. Unsure of what to say after, I saluted him then told him to check on the rest of the ship, I took my seat in the captains chair, although I already knew that once HQ found out I was in a cast and eye patch they would probably order me to take lealve, but hey... what they don't know won't hurt them.

2 shuttles came out of the Luistania's shuttle bays and made there way toward the planet, I looked at the UCV-Leo and wondered what the battle would be like if she never appeared here, however my mission was still the same, the shuttle farried the medical supplies out of the ship and onto this one. We needed to get those supplys to an outpost deep in Gammulens territory, however we already knew we might not make it,"I wonder if the Leo captain would be interest in a propasition",I said rubbing my beard. The coms officer looked at me,"Your not sirious sir.. thats a UCV ship.. the likly hood of them helping us is almost zilch and don't forget there Merc's the only work for the highest bidder",I looked at my coms officer,"Yes your right, however some Mercs have a sense of honor and loyality, besides if this Gammulen threat turns out to be real then they might HAVE to fight",I was about to gesture toward the tacops display when my coms officer picked up something on the marine band.

In my quarters

I looked over the report the marines sent to me, apparently an artifact was on the planet, two to be procise.A RANDOM which was totaly ineffective and out of date and a PAD which the Luisitania already has one,"Maybe the Invader could use this one.. they don't have this artifact just yet", I opened a private coms to the Sargeant of Bravo Squad," Sargeant send those two artifacts up here, however Secure the RANDOM and send it to command at once","Yes sir!"

Back on the bridge

We continued to monitor the UCV-Leo wondering why she was still here

sorry for my absence again

The battle unfolded all too quickly. Fighters of all sorts flew about and p.t.a fire lit the area up. After an exhaustive battle we saw the Gammulan force fleeing through the jumpgates.

"Our condition is normal sir. Receiving transmission sir. Standby...."

---------------------

This is Dominik Caine, Captain of the 'LEO'. I believe you people have some explaining to do. Like why you were this far from home, checking out a dead planet, with Gammulan warships stopping by to say hello.

------------------------

"Ready my reply." i ordered my comms.

---------------------

This is Commander Elio Jason of the 'Invader'. We originally came here on a scientific mission. We are searching for a lost squadron of Droidan battleships. All other data of this mission is classified. I have no clue why the Gammulans are here. I would assume they wanted something the ships of the squadron possesed.

---------------------

"Orders sir?"

"Stand down weapons tac. Keep rearis gonig steady."

"Yes sir."

Sargeant Mendoza walked around the artifacts that they found the planet,"Strange that these would be here", he said

Back on ship

I walked around the bridge, very nervous and wondering what the Leo was staying here,"I don't like this", my gunnery officer looked at me,"Should I arm our weapons and aim at them sir?", I looked at her,"No. I don't want us to seem like a threat. Well the shuttles have docked and the Invader is more than a match for the Leo if fighting break's out.. lets continue on our mission. We need to get to Gammulen space and get those Medical supplys to the hidden base on one of the world", I sat back down.. no one on the bridge knew where the hidden base was except for me.. Galcom HQ gave me orders NOT to tell anyone the location and that the crew where given orders to shoot me if I was in danger of being capture'd.

9 days later

We arrived in Otura-9, Omega Centauri. no toher ship was there, Except 2 gammulen trading ships.

"Sir where nearing the planet.. transmiting clearence codes now", my coms officer said, my Tacops officer kept watching the sensor screen.. she picked up 9 static pings and was now extra careful,"Sir", my coms officer turned around and looked at me,"transmission received.. where clear to land at these cordinets.. once we enter the planetery atmosphere a squad of 7 fighters will link with us and escort us to the base", I just nodded.."There they are again", my tacops officer said staring at the sensor screen.. she then saw a single ship appear.... Directly behind us,"SIR! BEHIND US!", the view screen changed to show what was inback of us.... a gammulen starcarrier,"damn it", a second later 6 other ships appear, surronding us."Damn it.. they where following us all along.. how long do you estimate?","I'd say for the past 9 days, maybe 8", I cursed in Japanese failing to take this into account... we could hold off this many but it was HIGHLY unlikly we would make it out alive unless we got help", I turned toward the flight officer, he had more flying experience than any on the ship and was able to dodge fire from multiple ships," Johny get to the stealth fighter... get to either the Invader or the Leo", my flight officer saluted then left,"Why are we always the center of bad luck","Maybe we should rename this ship 'badluck'", I laughed.. about 10 minutes later we watched as the Stealth fighter sliped between the enemie ships and entered the wormhole,"Ok people, BATTLE STATIONS!" our new PTA system activated.. We tested the PAD on asteroids and found it to be working well. The missle systems came online and loaded up a few missles,"Sir the Gammulen ships are charging weapons.. orders sir?","Wait till they blink"

hmmm... how to fill nine days LOL!

Nightstar carrier 'LEO'

Captains Quarters, deck two.

Caine was sitting at a small computer terminal in the dark of his room, thinking as the light of the monitor shifted and blinked it's glow into the corner of the room. It had been two days since their encounter and they lost track of the replacement medical ship.

The instant he heard the return message from the Invader he was set on edge, but he knew better than to push when Galcom had something classified. Last time he did that he wound up sucked into an underground rescue of Insurgent one, and it very nearly cost him his life, and his ship. The worst of it was he could share no information on it. ... if he did all sorts of hell would be broken loose. They had taken advantage of that fact and only gave him enough compensation to repair his ship, and allowed him to escape arrest so he could clear his name.

"Dominik, you're thinking too much again."

The soft voice of Jo flowed across Caine's ear along with the warmth of her breath. She let out a soft purr as he sighed.

Caine leaned back to look into the face of his unclothed partner. "I suppose I'm just considering it might have been better to press a little harder for what the Invader was doing. Something keeps telling me they... or that medical ship will be getting into some interesting trouble. And I'll also bet it has to do with what Elio said. People don't usually fight over downed ships unless there's something really special to them.

"Well..." Jo leaned down and nipped Caine's ear slowly. "How about in the morning we go back to that planet and see for ourselves then? ... In the meantime I'd like to get some of the attention you've been giving that monitor for the last hour."

As she spoke a furred hand reached along Caine's side and hit a button. in an instant the room was dark.

----------------

Day three: Bridge.

Caine strode onto the bridge in a slightly more relaxed state, and nodded to a duty officer as the woman left his seat.

"Anything interesting happen Lyra?"

The female officer shook her head. "Nothing other than dust and rocks to look at for the most part. This area is pretty dead."

Caine nodded once. "And any sign of the med-ship?"

"Nada. but we've narrowed down their general course. The ports they've been humping through are the same pattern someone would use if they wanted to get into Gammulan space in the fastest route possable."

Caine sat in the captain's chair as the woman gave the rest of her report. When she finished he paused to think for a minute. "Huber, turn us about and take us back to that planet. Even Gammulans aren't the sort to attack a medical ship. At worst they would board and ransack it for supplies then boot them out of their space."

Huber gave Caine a quizzical look, then aye'd and laid in the new course while Caine fell back to thinking. He had lost three good men to that fight, which he pointed out to Elio before leaving, and now he was going to find out what it was over.

--------------------------------

Day eight: Polar orbit of Majoris

Cargo bay 1

Caine was striding in between a pair of shuttles as people bustled about on their duties. The place was near empty as usual and t gave him somewhere to pace and think. They had been searching the planet for nearly three days now and haven't found the coordinates for the Droidian ship from orbit. It's signal must have been blending in with the planet's normal radiations. They did however have the general area thanks to the records they reviewed of the other ships leaving the planet. After some hard research they narrowed it wown to a patch of land about a hundred Kilometers square. Now they would just have to comb it with shuttles. He wasn't about to make any stupid mistakes though. Each ship would be escorted by a pair of fighters. Two shuttles and four ships undisposed to find a lousy chunk of twisted metal.

Caine only hoped that the Invader didn't return while they were there. ... it would look a little conspicuous.

lol sorry about the 9 days I hit the wrong key... it was suppost to only be 6 days... oh well the damage has been done =(

ooooh Commander Elio Jason where thou Commander Elio Jason

hehe =)

{RP}

The gammulen ships watched the Luistania as she stayed in a geosycrines orbit above Otura-9, the orbital defense systems activated the Luistania was targeted by 20 different base's

I got up and started to pace back and forth on the bridge,"Suggestions?","Well... we can't cloak.. and if we open fire they'll finish us off", my coms officer said thinking,"Wait.. the PAD is a thin laser meaning that they won't see it and know that we fired it","True", I said with a smile but that smile faded fast,"But once they saw one of the ships going up in flames they would assume we fired on them"

The waiting lasted for 7 hours.. We saw two sheamers of a cloaked ship circleing a Gammulen Astrom... suddenly the ship went up and exploded.. 2 more ships exploded.. then the 2 cloaked vessels vanished just as suddenly as they appeared... "anything?", my tacops officer looked confused,"Ummmm sir... those where not of terren origin. One of the ships decloaked for a breif 3 seconds and our camera's where able to take a picture.. I think Commander Elio Jason might be interested in seeing this","That is of course if we get out alive.. there are no other Galcom ships in the area and UCV ships aren't suppost to be here so the likly hood that we will be helped any further is also zilch", I looked at my coms offcer,"You always think on the negative side don't you?", my coms officer just turned the other way and monitored the lines

I left the bridge and went back to my quarters still thinking of what to do,"Our only chance is if Johny made it back to Galcom space or to any ship, UCV or GCV, or any of our allies",I took out a report from the marine sargeant.. I looked it and found a line that wasn't there before"

Found some strange looking metal and a flight recorder, not sure what it is and the marking are very strange I got up,"Could this be what Elio was looking for.. and if so did the Gammulens know about us having this strange metal on board",I looked outside... Come on Johny bring us some help.

Day three:Invader bridge

FarStar Region(unscouted region)

"Sir. Confirmed this is an uncharted region on our navcharts. There appears to be a Droidan station within this region. Sir it is launching a ship. Message receivded."

This is the Omega 2. Transmit your clearance codes and the your purpose here.

This is the GCV-Invader. We are her on a scientific mission. We have the code but send us more info on the Omega squad and what they where researching.

"Transmitting stand by......Sir we have received the data. Sir Gammulan Stormcarrier decloaking!"

But to my amazement I saw a brigt beam lash out all the way from the station at FarStar. The Stormcarrier was instantly detroyed.

"My god! That was a concentrated p.t.a beam! That must be of some unknown origin!" my science officer reported hastily to me.

"Droidan i bet."I replied

Suddenly gas filled the room. It was tear gas! We where knocked out moments later.

Day 9: Invader bridge

I shook my head as I woke. I vividly rememer the ebam from the Omega 2. But now we where in Majoris.

"Number 2! Status report!" i yelled over coughs

"Sir i have no clue what just happened. We have been gased apparently." my first officer responded.

"Do you remember anything at all?" I said

"Nothing sir. Its been 9 days now. We must've been gased heavy." he responded.

So I was the only one who knew of the incident. I noticed a note in front of me.

To Commander Jason.

We gased your crew. Yes indeed and we removed their memory of the incident. We left you with the memory because we trust in your judgement. This is only between me and you.

Sincerely,

Juno Mason,

Commanding officer of the Omega 2

"Sir a fighter is decloaking. Message received."

I am a fighter pilot from the Lusitania. We need your assistance! We are in Otura-9.

"Very well. Set course for Otura 9 to assist the Lusitania. Send him this and we'll be off."I said

My comms typed in the message. My ship's engines came to life and wesped off to Otura 9.

Commander's Log, GCV-Invader

February 5,3010

The Omega 2 sent us important info. Now my crew remembers the Omega 2. But has no memory of anything after our receiving of the data. I read through it thoroughly. The Droidans found important Galaxian technology. Since this was during the Gammulan Wras they had to keep it secret to prevent any other races from getting there hands on it. Now the Gammulans have caught a wiff of the evidence. God be with us.

"Sir! the PAD will not function correctly!!","Damn it... must be of unknown origin.. what did the science officer say?", I said a it disturbed,"She said it would work.. but then again she was out of uniform and had the smell of...", my coms officers stoped talking, I raised an eye brow at he,"The smell of Alcahol in her breath am I right?","Yes Sir", I sighed and started to think, This had been the 3rd time she was caught drinking and not in uniform.. I could have her court martialed and thrown out of Galcom.. but that was a bit to harsh.. I would instead have her transfered and then request a new science officer when we return to Galcom HQ

The 4 Gammulen ships where still staring at us... it was a waiting game, our weapons where offline due to the PAD not working so we had to take it out.."I hope Johny made it to Galcom HQ.. or to anyone who could help us","Sir we are a quester type class ship","Yes but don't forget where classied as a Medical Ship, only the Medical supplies where carrying arnt those that would normaly be used in a Civilien colony.. Plus",I gestured out toward the Gammulen ships,"They somehow know what where carrying, why else would they NOT be firing at us"," Well Sir don't forget what where carring was Authorized by Galcom HQ them selves", I agree'd.. we where Authorized to carry these crates but they had offered us a heavy escort,"Sir. One thing confuses me","What?", I said beginning to get annoyed,"Why did you refuse an escort?","Where in Gammulen territory.. where heading to a secret base, where carrying a load of medical supplies.. now what makes you think these Gammulens will beleave where carring medical supplies when we have over 10 ships protecting us... they would be very suspious", my coms officer looked back at her display, my Tacops officer looked at his screen,"Sir.. Unknown ship approuching our postion, the Gammulens are targetting it!!!!!"

We watched as the 4 gammulen ships opened fire on the new comer, the fighting lasted for 10 minutes.. there was alot of smoke and haze from the constant laser and missles fire, the smoke cleared.. the ship was still there.. not a single scratch.. two of the gammulens turned around and retreated, the other two stayed and attemped to destroy to the new comer but out of no where 2 thin lasers came out of the ship and destroyed the 2 gammulens Astroms with no problem, The ship soon cloaked and left..

"that was odd..","Very odd sir", We where about to make planetfall when 40 fighters came up from the planet surface and started strafing us.."Not again!! are the PTA systems active?","Yes S-","Use Them!"

Wave after wave of enemie fighters came into the sector.. we still had the unknown ship was sensors standing by next to the gate.. it was as if they where testing us,watching us, seeing what we where capible of, The enemie was lossing its fighters faster than ever but we where still taking heavy damage

"Hull Breanch Deck 5!","Seal Deck 5!", I yelled over the alerms,"Sir Intruders on Deck 4, Cargo bay 2! there after the PAD Artifact!", We suddenly saw the unknown ship move off and toward us.. the enemie intruders got the artifact and killed the marines that where protecting the shuttle, they got to the shuttle and took off.. but something was in there way.. they rammed into a solid object in space.. the artifact, which was strangly undamaged, vanished and reappeared in our cargo bay.. Everyone on the bridge was stuned and shocked to see this happening.. Next thing we saw was the unknown ship vanishing and a bright like, brighter than the sun and an EMP shock wave going through the sector..

The ship went dark, systems failed... We looked around then heard a hissing sound.. suddenly we all fell unconcious, the ship drifted and the enemie fighters drifted as well

{RP}

Phew! man I never wrote so much.. sorry about the LONG reply when I get into something you can expect a very long reply
