Former Republic Vice President Dexter Kyoshi (now President) comes on the line.*
Pres. Kyoshi: Admiral Weynal, what's the situation on the Citadel?
Weynal: Volitile at best. Given the Romulan's war with the Klingon's and Federation Dorman is getting quite a bit of support. I do agree with him on the count that this Emperor won't stop at Earth.. He will turn his weapons on us as he already has.
Blake: Chances are they've already been and gone. We couldn't have beaten them here.
We'll take the Vanguard Shuttle, cloak, and infiltrate the base. We'll rescue Cap, any other humans we can and blow the Station to hell.
Or take the easy route: instead of blowing it up, neutralise the field protecting that thing from the singularity's gravity field, pulling it in.
*OOC: I feel I should note that, according to Star Trek Lore, Sha Ka Ree is at the centre of the Galaxy, not a Black Hole. Granted, we know that's absolute rubbish, but they didn't at the time. So, according to Star Trek Lore, they should technically be orbiting a planet, not a Black Hole.*
*OOC: I know but I would rather have the actual case. One for retcon reasons as I have a lingering dislike for most of Final Frontier including that blasted planet. Two.. It would make it more dangerous and I think that would help.*
Reynolds: Destroying the base would as the Science department head would say a collapsing field that we would have theoretically only a couple seconds before we too become nothing.
Alright so we need to board, fight off an entire army, save any humans left on that base, and destroy it without killing ourselves. That sound about right?
*Veridian IV. A hillside overlooking a metropolis. Drazaak stands atop the Hillside, holding Ragnarok up.*
Drazaak: Forged by our enemies, in the flame of chaos, S'tak'ra brought exile to our order.
Now, in the hands of its rightful masters, it shall end our exile and from the fires of ragnarok, Midgaard shall enter a brave, new age.
An age under our guidance.
*His red eyes flash as he drives the sword into the ground, causing it to crack as red light pierces the surface, the sword starting to glow. Veridian's sun starts to turn red, as storm clouds gather around it.*
Let it begin.
*Red swirls of energy form around him as another Shadow steps out of the Forge.*
Drazaak: No more games. We end this quickly. We crush all who oppose us.
Shadow: Your will, my hands.
*OOC: Okay, let's start wrapping our loose storylines up. I want to be starting the final battle by the beginning of next week.
And this is going to be BIG. Bigger than Northman, bigger than Qonos', bigger than M, bigger than Preston. If they fail here, the Galaxy is doomed.
And I'm not kidding. I am going to go full nova on this.*
*OOC: Oh did I inspire somebody? Luckily (depending on who you ask) I am not working this weekend so hopefully football here and my actual screen writing doesn't eat up a ton of my time. *
Mason: Not friends. The only reason I'm here is because he just kept me from getting killed.
*He taps his earpiece.*
Delby, what's happening with the Level 7?
Delby *Over Comm*: I'm still following the Synthesisers. They're heading for their docking bay.
Mason: Has she done anything--
Delby *Over Comm*: That I can arrest her for? Not yet, Boss.
Mason: See if you can talk to her - or the Synthesiser Leader. I want to make sure that I don't have to set the hounds on her.
Delby *Over Comm*: Copy.
Mason: Hall, Allington's gone. I want you to pick up her trail. Find her, retrieve her.
Hall *Over Comm*: If she's gone rogue again?
Mason: She's a Level 8. You know what to do.
Hall *Over Comm*: I'll take a Hammer Squad.
*OOC: A "Hammer" Squad (H.A.M.R.), or "Heavy Armament, Munitions and Reconnaissance" Squad, is a 12-man team of highly-trained personnel. They are essentially the Republic's answer to Level 8 threats such as The Destroyer (yes, they rank Sam as being as dangerous as The Destroyer), equipped with enough fire power to fight a small war.
Their equipment consists of:
Poly-neutronium alloy mesh armour, capable of withstanding a force of 20 Gs (note: it does not take away the force of the impact, so a 20 G impact will still turn a man's skeleton to gravel - the armour just won't break.)
Type 1 Electromagnetic Manipulator Harness. This manipulates a planet's Electromagnetic Fields, effectively allowing the wearer to circumvent gravity, granting a limited form of flight.
Portable Zero-Point Energy Beam Cannon. This is a large, 1.5-metre long cannon, capable of firing a 5-second burst of Zero-Point energy. This device takes up a lot of power and thus the power cell is extremely heavy, as is the emitter itself.
Heavy Personal Energy Shield, capable of withstanding a 10-second blast from the Zero-Point EBC. Note: It does not take away the kinetic force, just the electrical and thermal energy.
Basically, they're my version of the Hulkbusters.*
*OOC: By the way wanna have Weynal in a seat of power? Of course bring the real Ramez back. I think we can manage to deal with the Synthesizer angle as well and bring a bit of an idea into making something interesting. *
