"Attention! Cryo-containment system is at 34%" the complexes" computer alerted through its
network of speakers. The explosion consumed biolab2, sending a chocking black wall of
smoke throughout the hallways leading to it. "Sir," The leader of a containment squad
remarked, once they arrived at the laboratory, "It's here." "Is the weapon ready?" "That's the
problem! it ain't here!" He yelled over the intercom, People lost limbs from the fiery explosion,
while blood from others who were killed splattered the walls. The more I observed the
conditions it became very clear that Trinitus raided us.
"Alert all crewmembers, we've got ourselves another war to fight." I remarked to the
complexes' computer. Deep down, however, I had a gut wrenching feeling this was going to be
my last war I would fight. The wailing of the siren filled all hallways and rooms, soldiers rushed
to the armory to secure their weapons. "Alex, I'm detecting an enemy vessel approaching,"
Aiden, my lutienant announced as he monitored the complexes' vast sensor arrays.
"Tibus is in command again" minter, my chief of combat operation exclaimed to me, "Let
him come." "Are you MAD? He'll destroy this place!" "I've learned to never move to the offensive until the enemy is weakened, thus, I'm ordering all mines in his domain to be
terminated," I replied, and got up to leave. "l won't tell her," "Thanks Minter" I replied, before
walking to the 12 man transport shuttle that waited in a nearby hanger. My men were glad about
me accompanying them on this mission, since Samantha ordered Turner to forbid that I go on
such missions. "Here's to our success, our new advanced combat technology, and the best
admiral there is," The fourth soldier remarked, before we all drank our beer bottles dry.
The shuttle left the vicinity of the base, heading towards our first target of seven
extraction sites. The ride toward the war zone was filled with the cheerful conversation about
past victories my men took part in. "Hold on, I'm detecting some strange pulsations located
near the mine," The shuttles sensor operator remarked, after confronting me about another
issue. "Is it related with trintus?" "No, nor us. The technology is far more advanced than what I
am expecting." "Dock with it, at least we can possibly end this violent war." I replied, and then
we resumed our conversation. "Some thing's not normal; I mean Alex never acts this way
normally," "Look, you're just over re-acting, everything'll be fine." His friend remarked, as the
craft landed on the fertile soil of the planet.
I led my men off the shuttle, and the trek to the device began. The thick leaves were the perfect
concealment, but the heat along with the humidity became unbearable 4 hours later. "What is
this?" The third man in the 4-man party commented, as we confronted the golden dome. At the
domes top, was a segmented tip. We had no clue about what built it, so we entered the golden
dome via a 34-foot tall arch shaped entrance. Inside, was the odd marking of some unknown
civilization. "Sir, I'm receiving a signal from our cruiser." The device powered up, operating from an exotic power source. "Evidently, sentinel devices are advanced." "But, I don't know
how this even was built." "Never mind that," I remarked, trintus is at it again" I commented, and
we all stepped into the time bridge.
Trintus already boarded my cruiser, as those who resisted, were killed by the deployment
of a nurthum pulse. "Search this vessel for that scepter! Let no one try to conceal it! I must
employ its full energy to transverse the time continuum," He ordered the soldiers that
accompanied him. They cloaked their suits, and began their aggressive search, The soldiers
brutally slaughtered anyone that concealed its coordinates, until one of them forced a security
dimensional override of the files encryption. "Sir, I've retrieved the coordinates, what do you
want done to the cruiser and its cargo?" "Terminate their existence, for I now know exactly
where the system is located." "Shall we destroy the cruiser?" "No, keep the cruiser intact"
Trintus ordered, and his squad opened fire, their weapons were effective since, the
crewmembers that were onboard my cruiser were dead by the time my squad and I arrived. "
He's been here, yet he's wiped out my entire crew" I helplessly remarked, as 2 men in my
squadron carried the bodies to a locked section of the cruiser for storage.
"Sir, I do recall that some of you crew managed to hide in the fighter bays and cargo
bays" Minter reported, after he scanned the entire ship for life forms. "He also accessed a file of
unknown origin; I'll have to engage the cruisers' recursive access program to retrieve any
reminisce of what it was on" The 7th man explained, before embarking to the computers
auxiliary access cortex room on the Engineering deck. "If I may suggest this one possibility,"
"Fine Aiden" I remarked, and intently listened to his explanation. "They bypassed glesis-581 D, where we'll have to locate and stop trintus," my third Lutienant explained, sitting in the seat
beside me. " Begin entry, & prepare for combat on arrival" I sternly ordered, before dismissing
the brief meeting.
My men scrambled around the cruiser. Some entered the fail-safe overload sequence
codes, while others adjusted the cruisers systems for entry. " All fail-safes and systems are
adjusted, commence portal entry" My lutienant announced, as I observed the massive blue
portal expand in front of my vessel, engulfing us into the zone. "All beacons have self activated"
My third general remarked, until a warning was displayed on his consoles screen: ENEMY
I immediately went down to that deck with my pulse rifle, while a team of soldiers
mobilized to seal off the power cores. The room was dead silent; suddenly I saw the target
place a small object next to one of the power cores. "DROP YOUR WEAPON & STAND DOWN!" I
yelled, advancing toward the man with my gun ready to fire. "No!" The soldier remarked, and
pointed a black scepter at me, "l will take out your cruiser!" He yelled aiming the scepter at the
closest power core, a blue light slowly grew around its tip, and I knew he would kill himself and
my crew. "Fine, I'll surrender my vessel, just tell us where to go" The man had an evil grin
consume his face and lowered the scepter. " I never thought you, of all people, would surrender
to spare the lives of your crew" He told me, I looked away from the satanic gaze of his eyes,
The one you loved so dearly was a Gliesian informant!" " I never was told, according to the alliance we created" I replied, only to receive a hard slap across the face, it numbed my right
cheek momentarily then I heard an explosion on the deck above.
" I'll help get you out of here!" Trintus feverishly told me, as he disengaged the
plasma cuffs used to detain me, & we attempted our escape. "Who's found my cruiser?" "Don't
know, but they say she's real good at that kind of stuff." "Let's find th" trintus pulled me back
from the corner. "Half of your crew, if not all of them, are dead by now, that's what the explosive
charge we heard go off a few minutes ago, was fore
I can issue a code-T destruct sequence"
"I'll try to hold them off long enough for the program to upload into your fighter",
"Computer, this's Admiral Alex, Initiate destruct sequence T." I typed into the cruisers
computer interface, the holographic screen displayed a timer, below it, in bold red letters, and I
Protective system engaged
Power core disengaged from amplifier
System energy is exponentially increasing to critical levels in 4 hours
We wasted no time. The halls of my own cruiser were home to the Glesians that forced their
way onboard my craft, We heard the gunfire from the weapons the Gliesian soldiers stole from
the USS Smiths Armory. Fear lingered in the air since we both realized the result of capture,
and , believe me it was enough to motivate both of us. "C'mon, there's not enough time!" Trintus
exclaimed to me, as we snuck through the cruisers service shafts. My vessel also connected "Have you searched its memory banks for any useful Intel we can use?" The General
told his code-breaking specialist. "Nothing, I mean this vessel's locked up pretty tight." "This
isn't a sentinel based vessel, is it?" "No, why would that?" The general only pointed at the timer
on the screen. "He's going to detonate its power core, it will be an easy thing to stop since I
know the over-ride code" The specialist remarked, and then feverishly typed the code into the
dialog box. "Sequence terminated, full system functions restored to operation," The computer
informed the men. "Who exactly is this person?" "You missed the briefing we did" the General
explained, giving him the file he held.
"He's our most advanced subject of study, they've evolved to a level, we're not even
remotely capable of" The specialist continued to access the numerous files in my cruisers
memory bank, "He needs to be captured for experimental reasons." Suddenly, after the general
left the specialist alone on the bridge, he noticed a message on the pilots' control panel.
Curious, he walked over and sat down in the seat. The message, which was still displayed, was
an alert. "Notify the rest of our fleet, we've got to move to the offensive."
"Attention," The specialist commented over his watch's uplink to his cruiser, "All vessels
commence search and capture protocol" "Roger that, commencing activation" The cruisers luto
Replied, "Let's leave this cruiser, it'll serve as great evidence to lead us to his fleet," The
General told the specialist before they were beamed onboard their own vessel. "Should we be
concerned about any type of resistance Force?" His commander inquired, once they arrived onboard their cruiser. "No, have you detected any kind of a signature, pulse, anything?" "Nope,
not so far."
Now, they really had no idea about the confrontation they were about to enter.
"If we want an effective resistance to any attack, we'll have to start off on Dolthmar,
We've been there, so we can use the terrain to our advantage." "But, they may have tracked us
therefore we may be taking a lethal risk" My Commander remarked, we all met in the War Room
on deck 139 room WR58. "Look, they haven't found us" I commented, and activated the
holographic display of Dolthmar. "We can easily win if the planetary defense grid is engaged
before the Gliesian vessels land." " No, they're way too strong right now" My lutienant
remarked, accessing the planetary defense network, most of the planets slowly turned a Deep
red, " They're systematically searching these planets for something and it's a aggressive type
of search." I knew if it got to an incontrollable point we'd have to attack gliesis-581 D.
"Sir, I'm detecting gliesian vessels on the surface of Dolthmar!" Aiden replied, and I
rushed up to the bridge. 15 minutes later, we began our descent. My cruiser, like an eagle
swooping down to capture its meal, caught the Gliesian invasion force by complete surprise.
"Deploying plasma mines," My vessels' computer remarked, after we landed on the grassy
field. My ground troops deployed, entering the battle.
"Target all of their supply vessels," I ordered my weapons specialist, "Targets
locked, and system is firing." The vibe cannon caused all of the six supply vessels to lose power
to their thrusters, resulting in a massive crash-landing.
The explosive force of the vessels lighted up the sky, then, the glesians launched a bomb
run on the nearby research complexes as well as the numerous towns and cities, The planetary defense grid fell to ruins as its power sources were destroyed. Massive casualties occurred as
we engaged with the hostile intrusion, we knew it would only last only four days. I had seven
carriers on the ground and attacking the massive wave of glesian transports, which to our
surprise, were placed under the command of the infamous Trilan.
Trilan was THE most wanted Admiral, a thick and glorified record of victories was his
during service in my fleet. As those years progressed, he began a covert mission to capture
several research bases, killing most of the personnel, capturing those who he did not kill. His
extreme superiority aided the formation of his well-trained crew. The one thing he resented was
the day I put an end to his ways, and forced him to flee.
"Trilan, I'm detecting the presence of the USS Smith, proceed to target for
dematerialization" his weapon operator, a sentinel, remarked, and targeted my vessel. "Hey,
Stop!" Trilan yelled, shocking the sentinel, "Leave him for me, he's mine to deal with," he
ordered, "Sir, we need to mobilize our troops" His lutienant remarked, but trilan had a devious
scheme. "Call for a retreat, the Glesians have no further usage." "What you're thinking of doing
is totally unnecessary! we, your crew, refuse to grant you access to their planets cryo-
bunkers!" "Do you know what happens to my opponents?" the frightened crewmember
nervously gulped, as he looked into trilans' cold stare. "They are released from my command,
only to be hunted down and terminated." He responded coldly, and then a grin overcame his
serious look. The entire crew got into numerous craft and fled from trilans' cruiser, while at the
same time, we won the battle of Dolthmar,
Once Trilan located the zone he was searching for, he opened fire on Glesis-581 D. The
planetary defense chart was displayed to the planetary defense admiral. "Attention, we're receiving strong energy reading from Dolthmar! Planetary evacuation must commence!" The
Planetary Admiral told the council of 5 over an emergency hologram message, "Evacuation is
not necessary, all defense systems aren't active" The 2nd council member remarked, as he
entered the 56 digit code into the holographic panel. "Project Scythe has now activated" The
computer remarked via the council chambers' speakers in the dome roof. A Massive orbital
cannon began to power up its thrusters, positioning its self for a lock on Trilans' cruiser.
"Commence pulse discharge." The 5th council member ordered, and then they fled to their
vessel and left.
Trilan received the report from the team sent to take over my cruiser. "Not usable?!! How
can you say," Then a sickly grin creped across his face as a different target came to mind. "Tell
my scout teams to bring Alex to me alive, not dead." "And why would you want him? I mean, you
forced us to terminate our alliance with Alex!" The Glesian leader retorted angrily, "Get me Alex
or I will attack your fleet." Reluctantly, the commander left Trilans' presence. He thought about
the truce he made, to never betray my fleet, or myself as he walked to the hanger where his
fighter was held.His own men saw him walk past in a rapid manner, yet weren't told about his assassinmission. "Computer, status report on fighters hand combats weapons" He demanded once hegot in the fighters cockpit, His sleek, delta-wing silver fighter piloted to the hangers launch pad,then it blasted toward its pre-determined destination. In its cockpit sat my closest friend,assigned to kill. The flight was long, until, 24 days later; he arrived in visual range of the USSSmith, "There's a inbound fighter, advise precautionary countermeasures." "Aiden, are you sure it's Glesian?" "Yes, and I know they're our allies now, but it's just been dispatched from trialn's cruiser, I'd go nowhere close to this craft." "Look, it won't he do anything, he's probably
coming to negotiate a peace agreement." I told Aiden before I walked down to the hanger
where the fighter landed, Upon my approach, the craft appeared to be empty. As I turned to
leave, 2 big, strong hands pulled me in to the cockpit of the fighter. "ALL PERSONELL, REPORT
Aiden announced via the ship-wide intercom. Soldiers immediately ran down to the location, but
arrived just as the fighter took off and was out of range.
"Trilan needs you for something" a familiar voice remarked, once I awoke in the 2nd
cockpit seat, "When's the last time you worked with Trilan?" "I'm not doing it willingly." "Then,
tell him that" I remarked, but I realized who it was. "Trilan intends to do something unthinkable;
luckily your crew will go into protective protocol until you're returned." "So, what exactly where
you sent for?" "To kill you" after I heard that response I didn't speak a word during the whole
flight. A sharp pain now raced through my entire body, thus I was in a deep sleep.
Upon awakening, I found myself onboard Trialn's cruiser strapped to a table. The dim
lighting made it hard to see until Trilan entered the laboratory, he was followed by a medic and
a scientist in a white lab coat. In his left hand, he carried a syringe and vial. "Do you know about
mind control?"" Yes, I do." "Well, this serum you'll be injected with will cause you to be so
violently ill, you'll have to stop this war." Trilan turned to the scientist and nodded, The syringe
was placed into a vein, and the serum entered my blood. "Good, infusion was successful, beam
him to his ship." He instructed the Glesian commander,
3 seconds later, I was propped up on the wall outside the armory, "I've found him" A
Soldier reported to my vessels' bridge, "Along with a pool of vomit, and blood." When Aiden
received this report, immediately he sent a team of medics to my location, "According to his protocol, we'll have to inform Trintus of Alex's condition" One of the medics told Aiden, who
also arrived at the location. "Trintus won't like this news at all".
Meanwhile, Trintus and a small group of some of his top soldiers were closing in on
Or Trilans complexes. "Sir, I've received an urgent report from the USS Smith" The
communications specialist informed Trintus. "I'm trying' to take this shot, don't bother me
unless some ones dying." "I'm afraid your presence is requested immediately." Reluctantly,
trintus put the sniper rifle down on the hill side, and boarded the shuttle craft that was sent. On
the way to the USS Smith, he looked out one of its windows, and saw the violence below.
Explosions sent fire clouds blazing into the air like tall, fiery beats that devoured their prey. The
flash of pulse rifle fire could be seen being exchanged by both armies. Trintus wasn't told about
my condition, even though he kept persisting on knowing,
"We're here" The 3rd commander told him, as the shuttle landed in hanger 2, They ran to
sickbay where I was beginning testing. "What's going on?" "Alex was found in a pool of vomit
and blood at 1400 hours yesterday. We have reason to suspect Trilan did something to him, but
we're not sure." Minter, One of my top Generals explained. "Trilan has always hated Alex ever
since he heard of orions defeat, Luckily, you found him just in time, however, you don't have the
antidote" Trilan replied to minter, "Trilan injected a serum into Alex's body that will definitely
weaken him to the point you have to surrender. l, however, have knowledge of where to find the
plant that will generate the antidote." "And exactly where?" "The wastelands, on Cantina 5"
Minter knew going onto that planet was never done.
"I'm sure there's another way" "It's our only way to correct this and Defeat Trilano" Minter
agreed to this statement, "Fine, you'll have to take Alex with you on the mission." Thus, after that point, I realized that I would need a crew in order to achieve victory.
