THIS ENDS AT THE BEGINNING…

By Derwin Gonzalez

Vship reached a speed that was thought to be attainable only in theory.  Vship’s iridescent hull shimmered beautifully as it reflected the vortex of time and space we were blasting through.  Our defense systems detected the pursuit drones closing in behind me.  I pushed Vship even harder.  The Tech Clerics of the Yosidiean Quadrant had provided us with a miracle.  Our hull was covered with a shielding formula that could withstand the pressure of pushing through the vortex.  The drones flashed into nothingness, disintegrated by the pull of time and space.We were the last hope of the free universe.  Vship glowed as it ripped through the fabric of reality, it would emerge at the other end of the wormhole a million years in the past, at the infancy of the enemy.  Certain council members felt our mission was worse than genocide, we weren’t just killing a species we were wiping out any trace they ever existed.  But the enemy had brought this on themselves, for a thousand years they had spread war and destruction across the galaxies.  Now I was bringing it back to their home planet in the form of dark matter bombs, the very weapons they used to subjugate 500 worlds.  We emerged from the worm hole into the atmosphere of a watery world called Earth.  Its oceans teemed with single celled organisms that would one day evolve into humanity; the bane of the known universe.  I armed the bombs and plunged Vship into the water headed straight for the planet’s core.  This ends now.
