Title: The Battle of Thishen
Post by: Daxx on April 28, 2006, 01:11:54 pm
Wexxian sensors pick up a hyperspace signature. Suddenly a combined Icthian/Urshan fleet drops out of the ether at the edge of the system.

(OOC: I'll add more details about my ships in a bit - if you post exactly which ships you have in your first post, that would be helpful.)

The Icthian portion of the fleet is composed of about three full carrier battle groups. (These are about 30 Carriers equivalent, per the Peacetime thread - please make sure that you send about 3 times the amount of ships from this post (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=3884.msg114215#msg114215), or less)

Group 1:
Flagship: CVF Daring

4 CVF-Class Main Battle Carriers
7 CVL-Class Light Carriers
12 DE-Class Escort Ships
3 AE-Class EW Escort Ships

Group 2:
Flagship: CVF Audacity

4 CVF-Class Main Battle Carriers
8 CVL-Class Light Carriers
10 DE-Class Escort Ships
3 AE-Class EW Escort Ships

Group 3:
Flagship: CVF Suicidal Insanity

4 CVF-Class Main Battle Carriers
7 CVL-Class Light Carriers
10 DE-Class Escort Ships
3 AE-Class EW Escort Ships

There are also various non-combat support ships, including about 10 transports loaded with marines, waiting at the back of the system. Group Suicidal Insanity waits with these ships, whilst Group Daring and Group Audacity head towards the Wexxian planet.

\\Message from Wexxian; Thishen star system, to ALL who can help:

This is the Wexxian leader Alpha-Zeti-214 calling.

Our home system in the Thishen sector has come under attack by a number of Halycon controlled ships. Even now, more ships are jumping into the system.

We require immediate assistance, from any CAB or LAH ships out there to help us; we are not warriors and are losing badly.

Estimated time until destruction of home base: 4 hours if no help will come.

Caarnth chief research faculty has dispatched 30 drone cruisers, however due to the high alert status of our own system these ships have been sent from our core systems, they will take more than 4 hours to reach your system, while they might not arrive on time, they will be able to reinforce the ships sent by your allies

\\Message from Wexxian leader Alpha-Zeti-214, to Caarnth ships in rute to Thishen:

We have managed to fly our station into the second asteroid field in the system and create a rudimentary forcefield protection.

this will stave the advancing ships a bit and may buy us some more time.

we have supstained heavy casualties, more than 6900 Wexxians are dead.

Our situation is desperate; we need all the help we can get.

\\Begin Transmission

This is Capitan Tura Chinto reporting

The Urshan fleet is ready, all forces divided to three main group,the space attackers, the invaders, and the commandor's group.
 
Space attackers:
20 Frigates, 10 destroyers, 5 cruisers

The Invaders
20 Frigates, 2 Destroyers 5 cruisers 2 battleships, 10 titan transports

Commandor's Group
10 Frigates, 8 Destroyerrs, 3 Battleship, Mother ship (a slightly bigger battleship)

*Cough

Icthian Vis and Sombrerons ships, we must all strike at once.
In the name of the Halcyon, attack!

\\End Transmission

First comes the space attackers aiming on the defenses. Then comes the Commandor's Group blasting the vital space ships and at last the Indavers are waiting, planning to send the ground troops down to the planet.

Groups Daring and Audacity headed into the second asteroid field to scout the area for remaining Wexxian forces, whilst preparing for the Caarnth fleet to engage them should the Urshans not manage to occupy them for long enough. Some of the carriers started to launch fighters to help in the scouting effort.

A message was broadcast to the system as a whole from the Audacity.

\\Wexxian Forces, you are outnumbered. Reveal yourselves and surrender.\\

As they did this, Group Suicidal Insanity together with the support group started heading insystem as it became apparent that there was only light resistance. Meanwhile, work progressed on trying to decrypt a message aimed at the system, presumably to the Wexxians themselves. Hopefully the ViS ships would arrive soon, as it would take some of the pressure from Icthian forces.

I have now received an order from the emperor ... take no prisoners! commandor's group main target: Caarnth ships  *Cough, have no mercy!

We must use this opportunity when many of the foolish LAH races haven't arrived yet, we must make it quick! Estimated time for conquest in certain conditions: 5 Hours.

The Icthian ships, noting that the Urshans were failing to sufficiently distract the drone ships, started scrambling fighters. Remaining inside the asteroid field they switched on their EW systems and shut down power to hyperdrive systems, attempting to mask their true numbers and locations amongst the surrounding rock. An encrypted message was sent from somewhere in the EM haze to the Urshan commander:

\\Your performance is unacceptable. You must mass your forces when fighting drone ships, otherwise they'll start picking off yours one by one. Make certain your attempt to slow them down. We will notify you when we have found the location of the Wexxians.\\

The Icthian commander of the Audacity swam worriedly around the bridge. Fighting massed drone ships was always tricky, he had to find some way to split them up or force them to disengage to repair to give him some time to find the Wexxians.

OOC: Just a quick note to say that you should never evaluate your enemy's losses in an RP, you should always let them do that themselves. It's really poor form to say "I destroy half your fleet." Likewise, it's bad form to say that you take very few losses yourself unless you can justify that.
Title: Re: The Battle of Thishen
Post by: werechicken on April 28, 2006, 04:04:38 pm

A transmission between the CVF Suicidal Insanity and the CVF Dominus Astra, encoded within the Icthian emissions haze and practically undistinguishable from it:

\\Reports from ViS ships indicate they should enter the system in a short while. As for that other transmission, we have parts of it decoded and it appears to be from another group sending ships in to aid the Wexxians. Hopefully we can find and destroy the Wexxian base before we get into any more danger.

OOC: the caarnth estimate is for their battle with the entire Urshan fleet, personally I think they're being over-confident and that while the urshans may suffer heavy losses the caarnth drone ships will probably be wiped out without reinforcments, that is if the entire urshan fleets keeps concentrating on us

OOC: The Wexxians are hiding in the asteroids so we can't just destroy their space station. They've basically reduced all their emissions to the point where we can no longer detect them without being physically near them. The Icthian ships are therefore trying to find them by conducting a physical sweep of the denser areas of the belt with their fighter craft (whilst incidentally putting up a huge amount of EM interference of their own so they're not a target).

Edit: Also, I don't know what on earth the Gopiaribes are doing here, but whatever. Maybe they'll make a spectacular entrance for the Kaldri.

Oh by the way is the rebel aboard Auyuelcliad? If so we would be happy to kill him! *Cough//

*The Urshan fleets reinforced by the new Vis forces keeps appearing behind the Caarnth and Auyuelcliad ships using their beams and targeting mostly on specific ships as the Icthian advised and then disappear.
*The Urshan Titan Transports realizing there is no place to land stick to the Icthian ships waiting to see if needed against the wexxians.

\\mesage from Wexxian station to Far Gap :

Our engineers tell us that we might fuse our two stations shield systems and with the Wexxian antimater reactor we can project a shield around our two stations that might be able to encase the allied capital ships and their escorts.

 If we can make this work It will give us a tactical defensive advantage although It will force us to give up our hiding as me must move out of the asteroid field for the capital ships to move in under our shield.

*Most of the Urshan fleet in the system was destroyed with the self destruct. Also all the survival pods were destroyed meaning commander Tura Chindo is dead. The Emperor heard of this and immediately made one of the other men the commander while considering his next acts.

The Wexxians, now fearing for the worst, suddenly receive a well-aprreciated transmission bearing the voice of a torpal.

//Hey wexxians, the cavalry has arrived!//  [ooc: I can totally picture a torpal yelling 'yeee-haw!' right about now :D]

Seemingly out of nowhere, the 30 promised torpal warships appear.

Before anyone can react, another torpal voice enters all Halcyon ships' speakers, howling with rage.

//You'll pay for what you've done!!!//

 In a savage and brutal display of power, each warship completely empties half of their missile tubes towards the Urshan and Kaldri ships.
Roughly 15,000 missiles blaze across empty space, soon colliding with the enemy fleets in a dazzling series of explosions.
As floating debris and wreckage obscures the space that was once filled with enemy ships, the voice speaks out again, now laughing.

//Any of you still alive in there?//

Hold it all right there... just stop posting until we sort this out.

Okay - The Wexxians are inside the asteroid field. The Icthians are searching for them.

Now I thought that the Far Gap had warped into the outer system, and that LAH ships had retreated there.

I was assuming that they weren't anywhere near the Wexxians. If they were, I surely would have intercepted them before they could have made contact (I mean, it just makes sense). If the Wexxians had a plan to merge with the Far Gap, this would imply that they would have to get there first.

Also, just because something is big doesn't make it invincible. The Bringer of Serenity probably has the power to take down the Far Gap's shields on its own. The station can't possibly have the power required to maintain the shields against a sustained assault.

This is exactly why I was ensuring only certain ships could enter the thread. Your station is overpowered and hugely wankish. So you're not only rude, you're being a total n00b.

All right stop that,  ???

Lets just say that the Far Gap never got to the Wexxian Home Base (from now on I will just refer to that as The Originator... well it got to have a name!)

Instead the engineers on the Originator have managed to get the stations own new shield system up and running and steered the Originator out of the asteroid field in order to rally the remaining allied ships in the system so they might have a good point of defense.

This is a very risky strategy sines the station shield works like a Gungan energy shield, this means that if a enemy ship gets under the shield they will have a straight shot at the ancient station where all who remains of the Wexxian civilization lives. risky as i said because they cant help it, their concern is not their own life's but those of the brave souls who has come here for their sake. :)

Long live the CAB

Well this is only the Urshan fleet, the Urshans still have colonies in their star systems (though wounded from the illness)

And yeah some of the Urshan ships were in cloaking mode so they weren't destroyed. But then again...
\\Ah! my head, Am I bleeding? Men?! Men?! #!$#@$@ *Dieing Cough... For the emperor!...\\

*It seems most of the Urshan pilots were effected by the illness and starting to die. Many ships just fly away in space without any one to control them and some use their self destruct trying to destroy LAH ships with them. The few ships that's crews are not yet dead strike with all might trying to cause as much damage as possible to the torpal fleet. In the end all the fleet is destroyed...

As soon as the Wexxians broke from the asteroids, the Icthian fleet emerged from their own positions, the EM haze dissipating as the density of material dropped off. Remaining fighters were landed and the fleet moved inexorably towards the Originator.

//Wexxians, the Icthians have been in hiding; they're closing in on your position as we speak! We cannot aid you with all our ships, as we are still being attacked by what remains of the halycon forces. However, we are sending 12 warships to help you. try to evade the itchians until we arrive.//

//Icthians, hear us now! Don't think we didn't notice that little trick of yours... Break off the assault on the wexxians immediately, or you shall have 12 warships to deal with; not to mention the rest of our fleet, once we're done dealing with halcyon's diversion...//

OOC: I can see this battle ending one of three ways: 1. All non-Cab forces are destroyed, 2. some/all non-CAB forces retreat, 3. The parasite cure comes through in the nick of time and some how makes the battle pointless. I assume we are headed toward the last one? And what happened to my Oifan-Umtag ships still in the system? Since they don't seem escorting the Wexxians anymore, I am confused as to where I am needed. As for the Far Gap vs. Bringer of Serenity battle, I think, that instead of destroying it, the Kaldri should capture it, but seeing as how it's so heavily damaged from the battle, they immediately high-tail the thing out of there. And I think the Nightmare should stay out of this.

Welcome to out Ship. Please make your self at home. We welcome the Oifan-Umtag Medical team. *they go off to work on the vaccine*

Meanwhile Senior Medical Officer Nabaksul and Commander Mysticeti discuss future technological advances they could achieve together with the merging of the Naucean and Oifan-Umtag technology and information.

*Later they are interrupted and given the results in which Commander Mysticeti immediately reports to CAB.

//Transmission to all CAB members.

This is Commander Mysticeti of the Mother Sphere Sina. The combination of samples from the Mallen's and Naucean technology has allowed for a subtable airborn vaccine. Here are the results ...

After 1 hour - 1 of 10 subject recovered
After 6 hour - 3 of 10 subject recovered
After 12 hour - 6 of 10 subject recovered
After 24 hour - 9 of 10 subject recovered
After 48 hours - no progress.

Sadly it is not 100% effective and even after 48 hours and currently still the subject has not recovered. However we believe this is good enough to win the battle.

may the caarnth suggest that 48 hours after administering the air-borne vaccine you should introduce the Caarnth cellular toxin to ensure that those still infected by the parasite cannot reinfect the population, while this will result in the loss of many live it will guarantee that no parasite survives and so the chances of the parasites aquiring a resistance to the vaccine will be nill. The caarnth will be willing to provide information methods to introduce the chemical into ships if you wish as our scientists have already been researching and adapting weaponry ever since the halycon showed its true intentions

OOC: I assume that the Three Touch and the Mallen Medical Transport are still aboard and folded with you?

Though theSina was orbiting the Stomiodon homeworld for only a short time, it both frightened and intrigued the primitive Stomiodon, still hunter-gatherers. The Stomiodon homeworld, Mawan, has no natural moons, so they were shocked and amazed when this giant sphere popped into the sky. They praised the gods that they had been given such a beautiful gift. They watched it, all through the night, even the children, as is slowly traced its way across the sky. So when it disappeared, they were deeply saddened. They cried out to the gods to let them have the beautiful "God's Eye," as they now called it, back. But it never came back. For years they yearned to get the God's Eye back. They were determined to reach out to the sky to find it. When they finally discovered space flight, a full 5,000 years later, most Stomiodons thought it was just a fantastic tale, that it was just something those ancient Stomiodons made up to explain the way the world works. But some still believed. Those are the ones that would search the galaxy for their long lost icon, the God's Eye.

To the torpal's surprise, the ViS are turning out to be one hell of a nuisance.

"Status report!" the commander's voice boomed over loudspeakers.
A technician quickly responded.
"The ViS have been unable to breach our armor, but they've figured out to attack our engines. Out of the 22 ships currently fighting, 3 have already been crippled. They're still combat operational, but they're not leaving anytime soon. We're sitting ducks out there."
"What else?"
"Their kangaroo teleporting, sir; it's near impossible for us to combat those tactics."
The commander thought to himself for a moment.
"Maybe there is a way to beat their tactics."

*short amount of time later*

The ViS were still using kangaroo teleports, attacking engines, and trying to breach armor, when, to their surprise, seven warships suddenly dissappeared from space.

The ViS captain asked what had just happened.
"Readouts indicate that the seven warships jumped into hyperspace, en route to some nearby system."
"What's this then? The torpal are retreating?"
Between the ferocious combat, and the torpal beginning an apparent retreat, the ViS hadn't managed to notice the remaining warships slowly maneuvering through space, evenly intertwining themselves between ViS forces. The ViS didn't notice; until each torpal warship blew its on-board EMP, disabling every ship in combat.

Moments later, the seven other torpal warships returned through hyperspace, and they began attacking the now-derelict ViS fleets...
The commander smiled to himself.

But somehow it's taking out a ship probably 20x as big as it while taking no damage I wouldn't call that ridiculously powerful, id call that Insanely Powerful. There are only two reasons that this is possible:

Deprived of the defense of their comrades, the disabled Torpal ships are borded by the ViS spec-ops, who cut into the hull and begin to systematically disable other ship systems and pick of unwary crew members while the ViS cpaital ships and fighters continue to repair the damage done by the EMP.

OOC; the nighmare is an insanely powerful ship, since we've already determined that halycon are goind down I was thinking that it could arrive with the Nauncian mother sphere to ensure total victory, or it could arrive on its own and kill many ships but be a close call, that is when everyone feels that this is ended

Good. You can set it on the kaldri's ridiculously powerful ship.

My ship isn't "ridiculously powerful"..
But somehow it's taking out a ship probably 20x as big as it while taking no damage I wouldn't call that ridiculously powerful, id call that Insanely Powerful. There are only two reasons that this is possible:
1)It's constructed by a long dead super race and was discovered by the Kaldri
2)The Kaldari captain is pressing the "I Win" button

No. The Kaldri Empire built it by itself, and also researched the technology. I could blow you to nothingness with realistic technology (Particle Accelerator to create black holes), but I won't do that, unless other people start using superomfgwtfbbq mass destruction weapons. And who says that I'm not a super race? If that is what's required to have my Titan, then so be it, I'm a super race.

"What the hell just happened?" demanded the Icthian commander aboard the Suicidal Insanity. "Those ships just dropped in from above the surface!"

Swimming quickly up to the front, his second in command joined him in front of the viewscreen. "Sir, they're Torpal ships. They just dropped out of hyperspace. They must be mad making such a short jump within a system, anything could have happened!"

"All stop!" the captain screamed. Shortly, the entire Icthian fleet slammed thrusters into reverse and hung in space not far from the Originator, just out of weapons range of the Torpal ships. Without need for his command, fighters were already being launched from other carriers in the fleet.

The Icthian commander considered his options. He had to take out the Originator no matter the losses to his ships. Yes, he thought, he had a plan.

In the mean time, use all non-crippled fighters remaining to draw torpal ships to the following coordinates <Says coordinates>

the torpal commander spots a group of surviving fighters. they begin attacking the 6 active warhips, slowly retreating further and further out into space. leaving the battlefield of lifeless ships, the commander suddenly realizes this. "I don't know where they're leading us, but it has to be a trap. I want the Crimson and the Abolisher to pursue these fighters. The rest of you follow me. This was a distraction; they're probably attempting to fix their ships as we speak. We're going to go back and destroy the ViS fleet before they get our boys back there."
And so the remaining 4 warships began to return to the battlefield, hopefully in time to save the remainder of the fleet...


Deprived of the defense of their comrades, the disabled Torpal ships are borded by the ViS spec-ops, who cut into the hull and begin to systematically disable other ship systems and pick of unwary crew members while the ViS cpaital ships and fighters continue to repair the damage done by the EMP.

technicians, their ships appair to be repairing themselves from the EMP blasts; they seem to know what they're doing. I want all turrets and missile pods operational in twenty-five minutes. that should give us enough time to defend ourselves until the ships are back online.//

The Torpal follow the capital ship, which stays just out of weapons range. Eventually it comes to a halt in front of the seemingly disabled strippers.

As the Torpal ships approach they suddenly spring to life, orient so the bottom edge is facing in the general direction of the Torpal, and activate their huge particle collection beams...

The commander watched from afar as his 5 of his warhips were ripped to shreds (ooc: or whatever effect the particle collection beams have on warships...) before his eyes.

"NOOOOOooooo!!!!!!!!!!" His scream, heard throughout the ship, contained multiple emotions; surprise, shock, grief, regret, and, most of all, pure hate.

"Those...those B*ST*RDS!" his crew looked at him nervously, as he growled, "THEY WILL PAY."
"What are we going to do?" a pilot questioned, "We're the only working ship left in the area"
"Not if the rest of those ships know to do their jobs" He answered, through gritted teeth.

Moments later, the technicians of the EMP-blasted ships had completed the first half of their job. All around the ViS capitol ship and strippers, weapons systems began blinking back to life; turrets began activating, missile pods were once-again functional.

The torpal, now enraged with the destruction of 5 of their ships at once, went berserk. Hundreds of missiles began streaking through the air, and turret fire began blasting into the sides of strippers. All hell broke loose.

The torpal commander's last bet on winning the battle began playing out before his eyes. He beckoned towards his crew, listening to the gunfire., as he smiled, "You here that, boys? we've got ourselves a fight to win! Get us in there; and let's blow those slugs back to wherever the hell they came from!"

///We are currently near The Originator///

(This is some of the worst stuff i have ever written, looking back!)
In The Auyuelcliad Control ship, Jeren watches the infinite blackness of space, the faint light of the shield illuminating  The Starshine, as the distant flashes of lights make odd shadows play along the asteroids.
"Jeren?"
"Yes, Jian?
"You seem....Troubled, Topai Nubek. Do you wish to spar with me? It would help clear your mind."
"It is a long time since last i fought with a Hurrakai....But They say you never forget. I am happy to spar with you."
After a brief walk through the corridors of The Starshine, they arrive at the training rooms, that Jian personally had installed, according to rumour. Jian was a master of the Hurrakai, and practised for hours every day endlessley.
They fight, parrying and ducking and weaving and striking, Jeren knows he is far outmatched, but Jian holds back, of course. As they fight, Jian probes.
"What Religion are you,Jeren?
"Dhulam, of course."
"I mean, What Sect?
"Oh! Henethist."
"I'm Evangelist."
The tension in the room was crippling, and Jeren turned his attention to the guards readying themselves. The rift between Henethist and Evangelist Dhulami was well known.
"I tire of my brethren in the Evangelists.The disapprove of everything. Of my job, of many things in Auyuelcliad culture. But they aren't bad."
Jeren couldn't think of a reply to that, and mumbled.
"Do you enjoy being a Diplomat?"
Jeren laughs, "Of course, Drevai. Of course, it is only in the last 50 years ago that such a thing has existed. We used to be Isolationists, but it just doesn't work. We need other races, They need us. There must be a balance."
Now Jian is the one to laugh,"You sound like Master Hebai, back home. You are probably as wise!" Jeren smiled. "War is like fighting one on one. The appropriate risks, the correct strikes, knowing the most techniques....But soon, there will be no need for me. Without war, there are no generals. I pray for that day. a day with Freedom, Prosperity and Happiness, free from the taint of Halcyon. with one ruling alliance."
"You Contradict Yourself."

NARR: Suddenly the entire Icthian fleet's engines kicked in and they started hurtling towards the part of the Torpal fleet that was no engaging the ViS. Fighters unleashed missiles at the larger Torpal warships, but strangely did not slow after exhausting their weaponry and continued straight at the Torpal ships. Meanwhile, they were closely followed by Icthian capital ships who despite launching missiles those nearby seemed to ignore Torpal weapons ships that they passed.

It was as if an invisible wind flowed through the ships as each AE Escort poured out masses of radiation, static and white noise into the space around them. Ships fired chaff and sparkler decoys even when there weren't missiles targeted at them; the overall effect was to create a huge amount of EM noise.

OOC: The Icthian fighters, having no options, are going to ram Torpal ships after unloading their weaponry. Feel free to work out the effects of that. The capital ships are just passing by, however.

OOC: No, these are the Torpal ships who escaped the ViS and made a hyperspace jump. As such, they represent about half the Torpal fleet.

ooc: hmm...not quite sure what you guys are thinking but regarding the torpal fleet:
originally-30 ships
8 jumped through hyperspace to protect the wexxians from the itchians, while the other 22 fought the VIS.
Of the 22, 6 left the system while the other 16 blew the EMPs.
When the 6 ships returned, all but the commander's ship were destroyed in an ambush by the strippers.
In the ViS battle, that left one functional ship and 16 nonfunctional.
By the time the ViS repaired their ships, all 16 ships had managed to repair their weapons, continuing the battle.
When the mother sphere appeared, 7 of the EMP-blasted ships had repaired their engines.
So 8 ships (commander plus 7 fixed) are heading to the mother sphere, while 9 ships (4 with destroyed engines, 5 repairing engines; all 9 with fully functioning weapons) were left in the area of the battle.

OOC: The Icthian fighters, having no options, are going to ram Torpal ships after unloading their weaponry. Feel free to work out the effects of that. The capital ships are just passing by, however.

//They're going to try and ram us? Pffffft. All turrets, destroy incoming fighters on the starboard side!//

The ichtian fighters, try as they might, fail to penetrate the seemingly endless wall of turret-fire, as they are mercilessly torn to pieces.

//Fools...Now then, back to the ViS ships; they've already destroyed another of our engines, we can't let them get to any more!//

*On The Bringer of Serenity*

*Helokir picks up a dark crystal from his pocket and places it in some sort of "holder" infront of him. When it slids down, a hologram opens. A royal guard stands inside the hologram, looking at Helokir*

Helokir: "I want to talk with the Emperor. Is he available?"
Royal Guard: "Yes. Please wait a few seconds while I direct you to his chamber" *Noise in the picture for 4 seconds, and then it was sharp again. The hologram was now showing a big and dark room. A dark and robed figure was standing and looking out through a window*
"What is it, fleet admiral?", a dark voice said.
Helokir: "My lord, we have encountered no problems yet."
Emperor: "The reason we sent you there, is more important than puny military problems, fleet admiral. Tell me how the core is performing."
Helokir: "It's performing splendid, my lord. It has exceeded every limit that the scientists sat. It can produce power to 92% of the ship, and we have had no problems with it yet"
Emperor: "Good... Now, let me show you our newest technology." *The emperor waved his hand, and the view was changed to a window. There was hovering a giant ship up in the sky*
Helokir: "By the old titans... It's huge. How... When!?"
Emperor: "Shush. That is none of your business, fleet admiral. Concentrate on your objective, and you might be a part of the crew on this ship. Farewell"
Helokir: "Of course, my lord. Farewell"

well, since they're just missiles from the fighters, I assume they wouldn't do to much damage to anything besides other fighters. so I suppose some of the missiles do hit the warships, but with minimal damage...

in that case then we'll just say that the missiles that did manage to hit the ships' did a good amount of damage to the ships armour, and that everyone on-board was thoroughly pissed.

NARR: The Icthian capital ships had more or less passed through the Torpal fleet when the escorts stopped dead and came about, and began to fire upon Torpal ships.

Aboard the AE Confusion, the commander asked for a status report.
"It seems that despite our best efforts most of the fighter craft were completely destroyed; we're going to have to engage the Torpal with ship based weapons."
He sent a message to the AE Discord.

//Well, between the 9 ships here, we have about 6,500 missiles left.//

//Okay, I want at least 1,000 of them prepped and ready to go. We're going to try and take out the escorts' weak points.
Technicians, route all available extra power to the shields. We can't let our armor take much more damage.
Turrets gunners, your primary concern right now is to destroy any physical projectiles before they can reach our ships, so keep a sharp look-out and a quick trigger-finger.

Get it? Got it? Good.//

Seeing that the Torpal are going to get rammed by the Icthians the Sina aims the planet builder beam between the 2 sides thus making an asteroid wall. The extra materals are from the Sombreon homeworld. Note they did not just try to blow up the Icthians becauase it could hit the Torpal ship by mistake and they do not want to blow up any more Torpal ships.
Title: Re: The Battle of Thishen
Post by: Daxx on May 03, 2006, 03:55:58 pm
The commander of the AE Confusion did a loop above his console as the rock barrier appeared between their ships and the Torpal.
"Brilliant, just brilliant! They'll never be able to stop us now!"
The escorts immediately moved to prevent the Torpal from easily getting around the asteroid wall.

Meanwhile the Icthian capital ships were nearing the Originator, with left nothing to defend it.

OOC: So when I reach the Originator, what should I do? Should I cause massive damage to it? This is getting dangerously close to the Icthians winning now... we can't have that. Then again, there should be an interesting way to end this without some deus ex machina solution. I mean, I have an idea, but it involves the Torpal making a second hyperspace jump and ending up coming out of hyperspace literally inside the Icthian fleet, blowing them all to hell. What do you think, operaghost?

jumping in at the last minute to save the day by blowing them all to hell? sounds fine to me  ;D
but i think it would have to be after the operational ships get armed with the vaccine...unless maybe something like they're busy, and then with the asteroid wall, the other ships have a chance to fix their engines, and they fix them just in time? idk, whatever it is, sounds good to me...

Nothing now, the battle's pretty much over.

OOC: I assume I can do this, if I guessed wrong please tell me.

NARR: The Torpal ships, frustrated by the barrier before them, stopped. Turning to his second in command, the Torpal commander motioned to open communications to the rest of his fleet.

//All ships ready for a hyperspace jump. We did it before, we can do it again. Stand by on my mark with these parameters.//
Hitting a few buttons, he punched in the jump co-ordinates.

As one ship, the Torpal fleet wrenched open the fabric of space and dropped through the ether, consumed by the void of hyperspace.
Seconds later, the Icthian commander gave the order to ram the Wexxian Originator. "We may be out of missiles, but we will still find glory in the eyes of the Corporation when we wipe out these Wexxian scum. All glory to Halcyon!"
At that moment, there was an unholy tear as the Torpal fleet dropped back out of hyperspace. Most ships materialising partway through or inside Icthian ships, huge explosions rang out; the shockwaves ripping the Icthian fleet and most of the Torpal ships to pieces. The remaining Torpal ships turned to finish off their opponents - in seconds none of the Icthian carriers were left.

Cleaning up the Icthian escorts proved a problem for the diminished Torpal fleet, but eventually all were destroyed and captured. The three remaining Torpal ships hung weary in space amongst the debris.

Doesnt make any difference. SATS are the least important exams you'll ever take (note to foreigners and other aliens.

Yup, that's fact, pure and simple. But if i dont get good grades i have to study more and will be forced to work harder, meaning less free time.
...and they were stupidly easy this year! We were given nigh-on-impossible tests for practice, the real deal was a piece of piss.

The 9 torpal warships still undergoing repairs at the EMP site listened proudly over comm lines as their combat brethren bravely and gloriously gave their lives in battle. They were saddened by the loss, but every torpal knew the honor of dieing in combat, and wished their comrades peace in Zesh's realm.

They felt a bit guilty about not being able to help, until the 3 surviving warships from the battle finally greeted them. They were relieved to see that their commander was among the survivors. After evaluating damages among both groups, the commander got on the comm line.

//Allies, we require technical assistance. Of our 12 surviving ships, 4 ships' engines have been completely destroyed; we lack sufficient means to replace them. Please send repair teams at your earliest conveniance.//

Narr: Having learned the allies had found a cure, the V-Men snuck aboard the ViS ships in the Thishen system and deactivated them, and introduced the cure. They then systematically travelled to every ViS colony and did the same.
The ViS leader had been destroyed by the collapse of the Naucean mother sphere. However, all was not lost. While in under the protection of the Wexxians the leader agreed to take part in an unusual experiment, which was carried out before his destruction (more on that later  ;))

As the inventor of Halcyon and so forth i'd like this to end with the Halcyon parasite being completely eradicated in known space. However, it will still exist in the area it originally came from (which is unknown but most likely towards the galactic rim past the 'empty' border of ViS space (which has been a barrier to expansion because it contains almost no habitable systems) and maybe other parts of the galaxy.
Title: Re: The Battle of Thishen
Post by: BioCat on May 05, 2006, 11:16:34 am
OK well let me end this in that case  :P.
The LAH forces started spreading the cure in every planet, some resisted and some just couldn't (like the Urshans planets). As Krakow said there are rumors the organism was completely destroyed but no one seems to be bothered now that there is a cure. (by the way we should add all the details of the war to the spore wiki story data).
I think I would open an "after the war thread" about everything that happened, I know at list I have lots to tell about what happened to the Urshan empire and I think it will restore some order to the galaxy.
