The Coup-The-CURRENT!-RP
« on: March 31, 2010, 04:11:26 pm »
King Gyvon of the Makal stood above a large city, the finest of his small empire. Going through his mind lately was the possiblity of invasion. With their empire small, and somewhat lacking as far as technlogy, they were easy targets. They had built four massive Orbital Cannons in their city, but for a stalwart attacker, those would be easy to destroy. They had recently come in contact with an empire called the Slakos, an aquatic nation. The two had formed an alliance since then, and there were several Slakos battleships in orbit as well. The Slakos had a superior military, more powerful than that of the Makal, even though the Makal empire far expanded past the numbers of the Slakos. He looked out, at a bright star.
"What horrors do you bring us?" He said to himself.

The massive semicircular room was filled with Perrachi sitting in simple yet elegant seats. At the front was a raised floor on which a podium with several microphones sat in the front, as well as two chairs. One was empty, but in the other sat Prime Minister Akdi Khadenin, solemn-faced as usual. Behind him on the wall hung the flag of the Perrachi Socialist Republic, a red banner emblazoned with a white triangle in its center. Khadenin glanced at one of the clocks decorating the red and gold walls when a cheerful-looking Perrachi walked into the room, a skip in his step. The mass of Perrachi cheered at the appearance of Dimikos Talin, President of the PSR. Khadenin leaned forward to the microphones and announced, "And now, let the First Session of the High Senate commence."

The High Senate grew quiet as President Talin stood up to speak.

"Greetings, my fellow people. A lot's been going on ever since the revolution. We've completely overhauled the entire previous system of government and created the galaxy's very first socialist state. Now there are immigrants pouring into our borders from all over, eager to live a life where they have a real say in the way things are decided. We've also helped defeat a dangerous threat to the peace of the galaxy, and peace talks are still going on with the Core Combine. But this isn't my State of the Republic address, so I'm here just to propose a couple of things. Although before I can do that, I'm afraid I must commence with some explanations.

"You see, the great United Society of Star Systems was founded on the principles of freedom. Free travel, free trade, and all that. But what about free speech? What about civil rights? What about the freedom to vote? I'm afraid that not all governments in our union share the same principles that most of us do. The Slakos Social Oligarchy and the Makal Kingdom are two of those. Slakos on their home planet are oppressed from birth, literally. Forced into classes, they are segregated into different, unequal facilities. A Slakos of a lower class could never have the chance to become someone of a great profession, while higher-class Slakos live in lavish conditions simply because of a random birth.

"Makal, on the other wing, are oppressed under the harsh rule of an absolute monarchy. For centuries, kings have crushed their subjects under their feet and abused innocent civilians simply seeking freedom of expression. A brutal police force secretly kills and tortures protesters wanting democratic reform, and little is known due to a complete lack of any political transparency within the government. Only recently has a large extent of the horror been revealed due to Makal emigrating out of the dictatorship into freer places, like the UGP or the Khurithian Federation.

"Well, my fellow citizens, I say to you that enough is enough! We threw off the corporate oppression, so why can't they? We brought democracy to all of our homeworld eleven years ago, so why can't they? The good people of Yalkna and Grevek have been exploited and murdered long enough! This is why I propose a formal Declaration of War against the Slakos Social Oligarchy and the Makal Kingdom in order to topple the oppressive regimes and replace them with governments by the people."

The hall burst into chatter.

"Makes sense to me!"

"I love my country but abhor war..."

"Let's hang the last king with the guts of the last priest!"

"We must help them in a nonviolent fashion..."

"I say yes, but no nukes!"

"Absolutely, I've done research on it..."

Eventually, Khadenin stood up, silencing the entire hall. He had the uncanny ability to make people shut up just by looking at them. The old Teroclidan spoke in a deep and wise voice.

"I assume that the High Senate is ready to vote on the matter now?"

A general murmur of Yes answered him.

"Then you shall vote."

Talin spoke in a more excited tone.

"All in favor?"

He could see a majority of High Senators touching the "voting screens" built into their seats.

"All opposed?"

Fewer did the same, but still more than a hundred. Talin and Khadenin stared at the screen behind the podium. Then it flashed the message.

IN FAVOR 1063

AGAINST 182

"The move passes, 1,063 to 182."

Many cheered, though some hung their heads in shame. Talin looked eager, but Khadenin's poker face remained as solid as a brick.

"Alright, then. The popular vote will commence next week, and if it passes I will be working on military strategies. So, what are other proposals for new federal laws that have made it through workers' councils and senates?..."
I came, I saw, I went back to bed.

Gyvon looked out across the city again, remembering that time, so many years ago, that that race...what were they? Snele? No...That wasn't it. He struggled to recall the name. He was to give a speech today, on the Defense Project. Many of his officials, worried of invasion, urged the king to sponsor a program to expand the Makal's incredibly pathetic military. It still needed to have some backing before it would get too far. The timed door opened, and he slithered out onto the semicircle balcony.
"Fine citizens of the city of Toelek, we have to face an issue. For years, our expansive empire has sat, in exile, expanding. However, our lust for land has made us blind to our defense. We have critical issues in our defense. Our weapons are pathetic in compairison to some of the other races locked in war, in this galaxy. People of Toelek, as the capital of our empire, it is our job-OUR! Not mine, not yours, no! The responsibility lies with us all. We expanded as a whole. We have stood, together, united, against whatever issue may show it's ugly maw, be it economic downturn, or pirate raids. And now...Now it is time for us to bolster ourselves against what horrors may turn against us in this unstable, war-enveloped galaxy which houses us. Our allies, the Slakos, have agreed to help us in this endevour. So, people of Toelek, stand with me, stand with me as we secure our claim forever!" He spoke. The whole assembly burst into cries of joy and support. He awarded himself a content grin. In all his years, he still had it.

The news had come in from across the Republic. The popular vote was in favor of war. War! The military rushed to mobilize, and the Executive Branch was meeting with high-ranking military officers to discuss strategies in the coming conflict. After a mere two weeks, they were ready. The Declarations of War were written up and the documents containing stirring proclamations of liberty and equality were sent straight to the capital planets of both unfortunate governments.

Battlecruisers, starfighters and everything in between were sailing straight for the designated target points, namely the capital planets of both the Slakos and Makal. The millions upon millions of loyal soldiers were reminded daily of the moral implications of this war and its difference from previous imperialist wars. "This is a war of liberation, not of enslavement!" they were told.

The seemingly unstoppable armada of millions was drawing closer and closer to the capital planets, and on their surfaces the people were in a mixture of confusion and hidden celebration...

*KSSSssk Kssk*

Kingdom of Makal,

I reprisent the services of the Holy and Rightful Union of Austians. It has come to our attention that the old order of your Kingdom has come under threat from socialist forces. I assure you, my people have been long ejected from power. My High Priest was court martialed and shot, all in the name of "Democracy". We are sympathetic with your cause and your current situation. Like our "Unionist" counterparts, our military is among the finest and most disciplined in the known Galaxy. We have generations of military prowess and experiance, as well as the most advanced battlesuit technology known; we are a force to be reckoned with, and you would do well to have us on your side.
We wouldl ike to offer our services to your cause, to preserve your homeland and the old way. It is too late for my race, but perhaps not for yours. You would have a fleet of Austian Battlecruisers and at least one Billion marines, all hardened by exile and all filled with religious zeal and utter dedication.
So what say you, Makal? We await your answer, as we yearn to put our skills to good use.

As the Perrachi forces hurtled toward their targets, another ship was making its way toward the Slakos homeworld. It was a large AA-20 class transport ship carrying supplies on its normal run. The run became much less than normal, however, when the transport encountered the Perrachi detachment heading for the Slakos world. Curious about the incident, the captain attempted to contact the Perrachi transit control, but received no response. Still curious, and by now mildly worried, the Captain contacted Transport Command on Calla, asking about the taskforce. The command said they didn't know, and now that they were interested, they contacted Talsenreave University in hopes of securing information. Again, no one knew of the incident, and the university faculty became quite alarmed by this. Hurriedly, they informed the headmaster Headmaster. he, then, contacted the Perrachi Senate.

//Hello, this is Key'kali Veldas Talsenreave, Headmaster of Talsenreave University at Calla. It has come to my attention several hours ago that a military detachment of the Perrachi Stellar Navy was seen heading towards Yalkna. The planet is a United Society of Star Systems member world as well as a stop on the Transport Command primary circuit, so I am doubly concerned as to the occasion of the fleet heading there. That's all I was wishing to know. Thank you.//

//Oh, we just declared war on the Slakos and Makal. It's okay, we did it to liberate the people from the regimes of inequality. There's no imperialism here!//

Jaor Nen, a High Senator, looked away from the Ni'Calls on the phone to another passing High Senator. "Er, I just thought of something. Our military officially belongs to the USSS, which is why we use the designation United Society Ship, or USS." "That's right. So?" "Well, does this mean that technically the whole USSS has declared war on the Slakos and Makal?" "I don't think so."

//Was there anything else you wanted to know?//

The Headmaster's eye seemed to go out of focus for a second, and he said in a faraway tone, //No, not at all. Thak you again, and goodbye.// He terminated the transmission, and quickly glided over to the comm in his office. //GET THE OTHER HEADMASTERS ON THIS LINE RIGHT NOW. I WANT EVERY SHIP IN THE FREEDOM FLEET, INCLUDING THE EMANCIPATOR, AT THE MAKAL HOMEWORLD IMMEDIATELY!// "Those corrupt Perrachi had this coming at them for years now. What do they think they're doing with this pittiful attempt at power projection?  As an afterthought, he reopened the comm and added, //I want regular updated on the possition of the fleet, and you'd better not give me many before they reach the Makal homeworld.// Quickly, the many Headmasters of the Universities around the ball of waterthat was Calla, cam on the line. They all agreed: An action such as this would almost certainly cause destabilization of at least the USSS if it were to be allowed, and all agreed that it had to be stopped. As the Perrachi fleets sped toward the Makal and Slakos homeworld, the Freedom Fleet of Calla was rushing on an intercept course that would put them almost right over the Makal world...

Gyvon was sent the message to his datapad. He pulled it off it's hook, reading the message. He hit respond, and said, into the screen;
"We greatly appreciate the offer, and gratefully accept it. We need all the help we can get."
He looked up at that bright star yet again. He was riding on a gambit of great risk. There were several races mentioned in a log left by the Sneal visitors so long ago. They had sent out several S.O.Ses, and were hoping for a quick rienforcement. Only time would tell, though.

The news came in to President Talin's office quickly.

"What? A fleet of Ni'Calls ships heading towards Grevek? But they're our allies! Didn't any of their channels broadcast the whole congressional session? Hasn't anybody there heard about the Revolution? This is madness!"

The President's expression turned furious. He broadcast a stern message to the top military commanders:

"Speaking as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the Perrachi Socialist Republic, I order all forces to halt at any sign of armed Ni'Calls ships. Their aim is to stop the liberation of the Slakos and Makal people, so negotiate with them to either get out of or way or join us. If they are ignorant enough to refuse after all tries at peace, attack until their surrender. Keep in mind that the last thing we want is civil war, and don't forget to tell them that."

Onboard the P.S. Devastator, a green light winked on Val'ones' command console. He hit the button next to it. A picture of a Makal came up on the screen. His face instantly showed surprise.
"Hello, General Ki'una. We need assistance from the Photos, as a race known as the Perrachi is coming to overthrow our government. Please come to these coordinates." The coordinates came up on the screen. A Photos looked at him with a wierd look.
"The Makal have been in exile for a long time, they probably still think the current leader is Ki'una. Alright, you heard what the situation is, set course for said course, activate the warp drive as soon as possible." He ordered. When the fleet around the ship were all finally headed the right direction, they jumped to warp. When they came out, they saw the massive green planet, with what forces the Makal could muster swarmed around it. It was sizable, though still insignificant. The Photos opened a channel.
"Hello, Makal Empire. We are the Photos, we recieved you S.O.S., we're here to help."

Reports were coming in from all the major news stations. The PSR's allies were aiding the very species it declared war on! How could this be? The President, Prime Minister, and Council of Advisers (as well as the diplomatic representation to the USSS) opened a channel with the USSS, intending to clear up confusion. A three-dimensional holograph of the Perrachi Emperor-turned-Chancellor appeared.

"Chancellor Tuolfs, it's a pleasure to see you."

"Skip the buttering up, please. I'm not going to be biased, Talin."

"Er... Very well. Of course you've heard of our recent declaration of war upon the Slakos and Makal governments."

"Of course."

"It seems that many of our allies within the USSS have rushed to defend the Makal Kingdom at the absolute monarch's request. Why do they side with the totalitarian regime rather than us, the liberators and crushers of oppression?"

"I won't take sides, but I will enforce diplomacy." Tuolfs pressed a button on his hoverchair. It was apparent that his physical ailments remained. "Get me diplomatic representation to us from the Ni'Calls and the Photos. They and the PSR need to have a chat."

The Freedom Fleet dropped out of warp as the Perrachi forces neared the Makal's home system, closer than anticipated. It came in at at angle to the Perrachi fleet such that every ship was set to broadside each other, not necessarily the best thing in the world. The Emancipator, in particular, was forming a rather dangerous roadblock for the oncoming forces. The captain of the Emancipator Opened a broad wavelength channel to all of the oncoming forces. It read: //STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP!! By orders of the Headmasters of the Ni'Calls Technology Union, I have been ordered to halt the advance of ALL MILITARY FORCES ON APPROACH TO GREVEK! ANY FORCE WITH THE INTENTION OF HOSTILE ACTION UPON THE MAKAL, SLAKOS, PERRACHI, OR OTHERWISE, WILL CEASE IMMEDIATELY! I REPEAT, HALT ALL MILITARY ACTIVITY. WE HAVE THE POWER TO DISABLE YOUR FORCES IN ONE SHOT, BUT WE WILL NOT IF YOU COME IN WITH A MIND OPEN TO NEGOTIATION!// The Emancipator slowly spun about in an attemt to got its EMP cannon within a proper firing arc of the Perrachi fleet, but held its position and kept shields lowered. They were to avoid hostile action if possible.

Photos forces, there before even the Ni'calls due to their somewhat convienient proximity, responded.
"Hey, don't threaten us, we're here to help the Makal. And Slakos, for that matter. We don't intend to shoot unless the Perrachi do." Val'ones said to the captain of the Emancipator, through the channel.

//Good, we have some who will comply to our will to talk out our differences, rather than talk with guns. Now, if we can organize a diplomatic solution to all this, everyone can co home happily enough.//

Back on Calla, the comm network expanded to accommodate Tuolfs' assembly of representatives, though only five or so Headmasters came up to the "Front" of the group, these being the most important of the large group.
