CHAPTER 34 - AFTER THE FLEET HAS RESTED
Within a few weeks the eighth fleet had been joined by remnants of the fifth and third fleets their crews were exhausted. The colony quickly swelled in numbers to over a million.
Located in a large enclosed room on the Oset stood Fleet Commander Pentworth, Captain John Smith and other captains gathered to meet.
They where looking at a map of Iquan territory.
Spread out in front of them where schematics of Iquan ships. Lisa was intrigued "How did you get these?"
Commander Pentworth "We found an abandoned destroyer damaged by a strong nebula we downloaded these schematics and learned a heck of lot.
The ships are pretty tough made of a hard metal and the Iquan themselves are strong and difficult to kill. But they like us are capable of being killed. Their weakness is that most of their fleet is automated.
We have successfully penetrated their defenses using a virus.”
Captain Smith "We tried something like that but it failed to work."
Commander Pentworth "As did others but we managed it."
Lisa turned the conversation "Whats your plan of attack then?"
Captain Smith continued "We attack via the Mazan territory and open up a second front attacking via the Peridima asteroid."
Lanoon looked on "The Ventroth will join you we will open a third front attacking Laquain. Effectively we are moving on a large front our ships will join yours in a coordinated attack within a few days.”
Lisa looked on "Sounds good. I wish I was going with you."
Lanoon looked to her "You have come far but for now we need you here. There will be casualties they will come here to be treated and we need a base."
Lisa nodded in agreement but was unhappy "Okay."
