June 9th, 2222 Planet:
When the people from
Earth came, we thought nothing of it. We knew of their planet and
people. We even had a few agents among them. We were completely
unprepared for when they found us.
The war began with a
massive fleet of ships coming from Earth. Our agents had fallen
silent just before the ships' arrival. We had no knowledge of
their coming. We were caught off guard, but we still fought back.
We sent in our war cruisers first, hoping to break the blockade
quickly. That was our first mistake. The people of Earth were
quite used to the same kind of defensive maneuver during their
own wars with each other. Our cruisers were decimated. We,
however, had a backup plan-the 3 Goliaths and the 4 Leviathans.
They were ships designed from the ships of other attacking races
and had won many a battle before. These 7 ships also had far
better force fields to defend them than the war cruisers had had.
We sent the Goliaths, the Leviathans, and two swarms of buzz
fighters. All were obliterated, but not without inflicting heavy
damage on the Earth vessels. We were saddened by the loss of the
Goliaths and Leviathans, but we had other things to worry about.
The Earth armada was still in the skies above our planet, which
we called Alpha Centauri, but really was the seventh planet in
the Centauri quadrant. The previous six were too close to the
twin suns of the Centauri sector and were therefore
uninhabitable. Anywho, we were being pounded by the Earth Navy,
aerial combat wise anyway. We sent up a last, desperate defense
of every swarm of buzz fighters we had. All were destroyed, but
so was the Earth Navy. You see, their massive war cruisers were
extraordinary in fighting larger targets, like the Goliaths. But
buzz fighters were small and could therefore get past their
barrage. Well, mostly, anyway. The Earth Navy had smaller
defensive systems to fight smaller ships, but they hadn't counted
on swarms of 500 buzz fighters. And as they had no fighters of
their own, we had an advantage. But now we were in trouble.
Undoubtedly, the Earth people were building bigger and better
warships right now and all of our shipyards were destroyed. We
only had 3 transport ships and they could only take so many
people. We had to send away as many as we could to safety, or at
least, a semblance of safety. And this is where my story
