Subject: [PW!] The Fallen Star returns. Explosive encounter!

The explosion rocked the cockpit, as the enemy fighter near the
right wing was shot into pieces, sising to exist. The insterment panel,
blinking a warning of a concussion missile lock on, made a noise, and a
bluish flare fired from the rear of the I'Bos fighter. The masked pilot
looked to his aft just in time to see the flare hit it's mark. The HUD
made a beep, which confused him. A red blinker, flickering in the
emptiness of the war. He looked hard at the light; his engine had been
hit by the shrapnel.
Leaving a trail of smoke, and zig zagging through enemy fire, the
Tie'nekian pilot managed to dock in the hanger of one of the only two
D'ahmarian Super Destroyers in the battle, the Muerte. Upon landing, he
jumped out of his craft, and made his way into the main bridge of the
ship two floors up. Screaming by, nearly flying, the pilot made his way
to the command station. He flipped on the intercom.
"Captain, this is Fleet Command. Right before I landed, one of the
enemy capital ships was just about to enter hyperspace, although it has
taken heavy damage. I'd like to take command of this ship while my
fighter is being repaired."
"Copy sir, command acknowledged. You have full authority. This ship is
at your Discretion." The pilot switched off the comm., and made his way
into back into the hanger. The repairing was well underway; his ship
top priority. He walked to his cockpit, being saluted all the way. With
the pitdoor already opened, he grabbed his Fleet Commander uniform
thinking he should dress for the occasion.
While the commander dressed, a radar operator walked up next to
him, "Sir. You're needed at the bridge."
The commander nodded, and made his way.
The battle was fierce, as are all battles. With the destruction of
their worlds, the Minions had declared war on D'ahmar and the Storm.
Their attack came swift and harsh. Not even Ros'co thought they would
act so quickly. The Minion's ships, although small, are fast enough to
outrun most ships larger than themselves. They struck just hours after
their worlds were destroyed; the whole fleet attacking at once. They
have nothing left to lose. Nothing seems important anymore. The don't
care if they win or die, they just want revenge.
The damaged ship Car'tos was talking about, the Dai'modor, one of their
larger ones, was making it's escape in the mists of all the chaos. With
two engines gone, and one failing, it had to make an attempt at
jumping, and with a port-planet nearby that was controlled by their
race, it was it's only hope of egress.
All dressed and neatly attired, Car'tos entered the bridge.
His white suit, woren only once before; a semi cape on his hips all the
way down to his ankels, with the same hip blades that his infintry
uniform had. His chest plate, now white with two lightning shaped
gravings along the side for rank. At his arms, two armlet-like joints
on hte wrist. He indeed looked more appeling than in his ragged soldier
He walked up to a panel on his left, the radar. Hundreds of dots on
screen. But one caught his attention; the Dai'modor. They were in range
of laser fire, but Car'tos had something more sinister in mind.
"Sir, orders?" Asked one of the Weapons Officers, expecting to fire all
weapons on the disabled ship.
"Ready the Gun. And don't fire until my signal."
"...Uh, yes sir." He quickly turned around, and pressed a few
buttons. "On low power, it'll take two minutes to char..."
"That's all we need." Car'tos interrupted, "Issue an order to fire at
all non-critical components on target craft. Let us make them suffer."
"Ye, yes sir. Attention all batteries," the weapons officer began to
relay the order, "Target all; fire on these coornets." Various green
lights appeared on his board, indicating confirmation.
Car'tos walked up to the front window, ready to behold the fireworks
that was about to take place before him. As he was about to sit down,
the haze of red laser shots clouded the target ship dead on, masking
all traces of any previous damage taken on it's hull, and multiplying
it ten times.
Minutes later, the lights on Car'tos' ship began powering down, leaving
only ship-critical power on. Car'tos stood up.
"On my mark."
All was silent in both ships. The Minions, fearing more than their
lives were worth, knew what was going to happen as the attack had
stopped, that only meant one thing; the Tie'nekians were about to fire
the Galaxy Gun. Panic broke out in the Minion ship. Issues were being
barked out faster than they were taken. Finally, the engines lit up a
pale blue, and the ship began to stretch into forever. The Minions,
thinking all was over as their ship started to jump into hyperspace,
didn't realize that only light travels at the speed of light. Not
From Car'tos' view, it looked like the enemy ship was now four times as
long as it's previous state. This was exactly was he was waiting for.
The blinding white light sped across the cosmos, right through the
Minion ship's aft hull, right on the engine. The plan was not to
destroy the ship, that would be a quick death. No, the plan was to
allow them to jump with an exploding stren. Forever being stuck in
hyperspace, where time does not exist. But since they were heading
toward a planet, they would collide with it, like a fly heading right
at an incoming bullet train.
The ship, only half of it in hyperspace, in a ball of fire light years
long, was at two points in space at once, until the front portion of
the ship finally reached the planet's surface. Both the planet and the
now two light year long ship were instantly destroyed.
Car'tos took a deep breath, "Time to go."
He bowed to the captain, who in turn saluted him.
As Car'tos walked down the darken hallways toward the docking bay, he
heard a yell. He looked around, but it wasn't on the ship. "What...?"
Again, the yelling.
"Karu! The clone is in danger!"
Making haste for his ship, he realied he couldn't just abandon his
"Hmm, oh, Aeris could fill in... she might color the ships blue,
In his I'Bos, Car'tos started up his engines, and flew towards his
planet to inform his mate of his departure. After a lenthly
conversation on why ships would look horriable in blue, Aeris took the
job as Fleet Commandress.
"She's going to do something to those ships, I just know it." Were the
last words Car'tos said before he made the jump to hyperspace en route
TBC? Ahhh, guess who's back in action ^_-
