The admirals contacted each other to see what to do. (This being the PSR, workers' councils are more popular than single leaders.) "Remember what the President said! We gotta negotiate!" "Nah, I just got word they've all opened up a channel with Chancellor Tuolfs. They're talking diplomacy." "Let's just tell the Ni'Calls and Photos that we're waiting for the big guys to make a decision." "The last thing we want is war!"

Admiral Zepokun was selected to talk to the other fleets. They were contacted, and she began in a smooth, accented voice.

"My fellow USSS members, the last thing we want is to fight each other. I'm sure there are some misunderstandings here. We have been given orders to emancipate" -she glanced at the massive ship- "the Slakos and Makal people from the authoritarian regimes of their governments. Our nation feels an obligation to bring freedom and power by the people to them instead of letting oppression of civil liberties continue. As I speak, our respective leaders are currently talking with Chancellor Tuolfs over this matter, who has stated that he will give no bias toward any group. So let's just stay until they reach an agreement."



//Go home? Excuse me, but you must be delusional. Have you ever visited Grevek or Yalkna? I've seen citizens murdered by police in the streets just for carrying pro-democracy protest signs. We aren't being imperialist, we're coming as liberators. Our mission is to end prejudice and bring freedom. Who are any of you to try and stop us from taking the dictators prisoner and giving power to the people? That's like defending a group of damn fascists! In fact, that's exactly what you're doing!//

Tuolfs spoke. //Dimikos, calm down. I'm sure that the USSS Charter could be perhaps revised to include democratic requirements, but let's hear the Headmaster for now.//

//Thank you. While this may seem a bone... er... airhead... er, well, you get what I mean, move, we have reason for out action. While we have no objection whatsoever to the idea op freedom of the people, I must say that we feel that you may be taking the situation far more extremely thank might be needed. We simply sent a military force just in case a talk couldn't be worked out, as well as the break up and quarrels that may have arisen from this clash of opinions.

Anyway, what we think is going on is a slight jumping of conclusions. The Perrachi Socialist Republic has sent a military force to both Grevek and Yalkna in a coup movement. Again, I have no objections on the intentions of the matter, but it was the execution that caught be by surprise. Two fleets of battle cruisers sent to take on two civilizations that are fledgling, unprepared, and weren't contacted before the fleets were mobilized. The whole situation could have been resolved with simple conferences for reform!

In short, all I ask is for this whole mess to be rethought, not stopped. And force will only make things worse. Could you imagine the uproar if the PSR were to crack down on these two peoples who are virtually defenseless compared to the military of the PSR? Why, it could destabilize the government of the whole USSS, if not the entire Galaxy! As long as diplomats will be sent, and not bombs, We will withdraw the guard fleet, as well as assist in the talks.//

//There has obviously been some factual errors on your part. For one thing, the Declarations of War were sent in advance of the attack. The cruel dictators (whose unbelievably murderous actions I do not exaggerate) and their military lackeys are the only targets of this attack. Troops will only be sent to take over government buildings using as little force as possible. We are a government of the people and intend to establish the same.//

Tuolfs looked thoughtful. //I think that both of you did not fully understand each others' actions. If you can simply reach an agreement, that will do. Remember that USSS law states that a member attacking a fellow member is only a serious violation if all-out conventional warfare occurs. Now, what does the Photos delegate have to say?//

//Excuse me? I don't buy this. How have you seen citizens murdered in the streets, when both empires have been in self-imposed exile for close to 20 years? Whatever happened before the exile is not up to date news, and reacting on news almost 20 years old is a little foolhardy, no offense intended. I want to speak to Tuolfs. This charade has gone on long enough, we're all wasting valuable time on an empire that has been functioning fine on their own.// Val'ones sent to the lead PSR ship.

//"Self-imposed exile?" Stop lying to me. I've never heard of any exiling, and even if they were that didn't stop me from visiting and taking a look around a year ago. Now stop halting progress and liberation and let our fleet pass.//

//Talin, don't let this degenerate into a mud-slinging festival. I know that you can all come to terms somehow. What did you want to say?//

Tuolfs turned to the holographic Photos.

//Look, none of us care what intention this is in, what is going on just isn't going to fly. If this goes on, it isn't going to fall on deaf ears. It'll devolve into a galactic war! And with the situation unstable as it is, we not a single race in this galaxy needs a span-galactic war right now. Call off this chrade, please! Think about the concequences, though you may not see them now! This situation could end up horribly. I don't know about the Ni'calls, but if you want to get to the Makal, you'll have to blast your way through us first...// Val'ones said, cutting the channel.
"So?" Said the fire control officer, his chair rotated to the walkway, and his legs propped up in a relaxed manner. Val'ones removed his helmet.
"I need some fresh air." He said, dispite the fact that the helmet gave him plenty of air. He rubbed his bald head tenderly. "None of us need this crap. This is an absolute waste of time. Is the PSR absolutly braindead? They can't do this kind of thing and not expect to have opposition." He continued.
"Are we really going to fire on the PSR ships?" The fire control officer asked.
"If they're stupid enough to try to fight their way through us. We outnumber them two to one. Of course, they could always call in rienforcements...," He turned to the sensor operator. "Keep a close eye for jump-ins. I'm going to go get some shuteye, if so much as a light turns on in one of those PSR cruisers, call me." Val'ones said, walking for the elevator.

//We will fire on the Photos first if they attack first, the Perrachi if they attack first, and vice versa. We are defending peace and thought, not helping spread violence on either side. It is... unwise... to fight with plasma and nuclear reactions, when words can do. Please, we can sort everything out, rather than just destroy all there is to sort.//

"They are most unwise to cross us. What they are doing is defending a fascist dictatorship, a totally unacceptable action. We merely wish to remove the corrupt leadership using force if necessary and then set up a government by the people. It all is very logical, would you not agree? We aren't exactly treating them like the Core Combine. These are sapient beings with emotions, and their abuse has gone on for too long, I'd say. That Val'ones should read about the Perrachi World War sometime. All I ask him is this: Can you judge the actions of others, but not your own? Is it right to defend a murderous institution?"

The old Perrachi's eyes seemed to be ablaze with the authority of religious leaders. His tone was quiet, but with a judgmental fury in it. He then turned away from the "camera".

"Get my recording over to those Photos, Admiral. They need to remember their moral values and the act of negotiation. It doesn't matter if they cut the transmission; our systems are superior to theirs."

Just as Val'ones was about to enter the elevator, the recording popped up. He heard this, and though he said nothing, the rest of the bridge crew saw he was steadily getting pissed.
"Start a recording, address it to the source of this previous recording. NOW!" He barked.
//Look. My patience is steadily drawing to a thin strand. Defending a "fascist dictatorship" is perfectly acceptable by our standards. In fact, by our standards, you are performing an unprovoked military action, an invasion, which WE find a totally unacceptable action. To be quite frank, I really don't give a damn about your "Perrachi World War"! If this is their internal policy, they have functioned under it sucessfully for a number of years, and in all honesty, you are way overstepping your bounds with this, this is not your place to render judgement as such. Especially when you know but one side of the story. I repeat. WE. WILL. STAY. HERE. UNTIL. YOU. LEAVE. Am I making myself clear enough? This isn't gonna happen unless you get some direct intervention. And I assure you, call in all the rienforcements you want, the minute one of you starts shooting, WE. WILL. BLOW. YOU. AWAY. Photos High Commander Val'ones Dalburen, out. And by the way, let's leave it that way, folks.// Val'ones said, both angry and sarcastic.

The Prime Minister was outraged as he hadn't been in years, but his face barely showed it.

"Very well, then. I didn't want it to have to come to this, but if you really are so brash as to hold your space, so be it. Your power has corrupted, it seems, and we have no choice but to remove it from you and give it to the people. I am frequently amazed at how unfeeling and heartless you capitalist murderers become, you know. As Commander of the Red Starfleet, I have no choice but to declare revolution upon your ships. I hope the next wave of navy officers think twice before enlisting in your fleet. May you rot for all eternity in whatever horrible afterlife your religion holds."

The transmission was cut, and Khadenin quickly signaled the Admirals.

"As you have been monitoring our conversation, you know what you are doing. Fire the nuclear weapons when ready. Show no mercy to the Photos."

They obeyed without question. As buttons were pressed, switched were pulled and orders were shouted, the massive cannons upon the PSR Battlecruisers swiveled around to face the largest Photos ships. Within a mere 6.7 seconds the bombs would be launched at unbelievable speed(1% the speed of light!) and explode in a brilliant cloud stretching for miles around. From their distance the ships looked just like small characters in a video game. No screams would be heard, no limbs would be torn. Some officers had their second thoughts, but the operation proceeded smoothly and quickly.

The Photos now had only 6.7 seconds to react to Khadenin's ominous message.

"MY... GOD!" The Captain Kera Vellak of the Emancipator exclaimed. He feared it would come to this. Thank the fates that his ship features non-violent weapons.

"FIRE THE CANNON! AS IT IS, IT'S SET! JUST FIRE NOW!!" He shouted. He really only needed to whisper the command, even, to get it throughout the massive ship, but his shouting of commands grew out of habit, and not to mention the urgency of the situation. It took less than a second for the crewmen involved in the weapons to press alll the appropriate buttons, and even less time for the EMP cannon situated on the nose of the great ship to let off a wave of energy that would disable the Perrachi ships.

In theory.

//Photos Commander.// Vellak began much more smoothly.//What you have just witnessed is an extraordinary act of mercy on our part. However, our fire first on the Perachi does not mean you are safe from fire as well. Make a single false move, and your fleet will end up like this as well.//

Vellak issued a final order to the weapons crew, "Maneuver us into position to guard the Photos fleet. And defensive weaponry in case the Perrachi try to sneak up on us."

Val'ones looked around. Situation just spiraled out of control. Something fired. He leaned against the railing, getting his bearings for a moment. Then the Ni'call message popped up on screen. He listened, and sent a text-only response.
//I understand. I have no intention of firing back. But the PSR just declaired war on us, the moment they fire a shot, we'll be returning fire.//
"All units, set the point defense guns to anti-munitions, divert 50% auxillary power to shields. And open a channel with the Makal planet." Val'ones ordered, and the crew obeyed. Within seconds, the leader of the Makal was on screen.
"What, we're a little bu-oh! It's you, Photos. What can I do for you?" The Makal king asked.
"The Perrachi are getting aggressive, we need to get core government officials off the planet. We're sending shuttles to evacuate you to the Devastator." Val'ones said.
"Alright, I'll evacuate the government section and as many civilians as I can, to the main palace plaza, that sould be an easy place to land."
"The shuttles are on route. I'll order the shuttles to make rounds, get as many civilians as we can. I'll drop some pods, get some troops to keep order." Val'ones cut the channel and leaned back, he felt pretty good about the situation.

"What happened, Admirals?"

Khadenin had an angry but withheld tone.

"Er, the Emancipator fired an EMP wave and we are momentarily stunned."

Another Admiral chimed in. "And it looks like the Photos are getting ready to transport the fascist Makal rulers offworld."

"Then get auxiliary power to the cannons and fire again!" The Admirals scrambled to give orders as Khadenin continued. "I know that neither their hyperdrives nor EMP cannons can recharge that quickly! Get moving!"

In only ten seconds the cannons were ready. As the opposing fleet gave orders and contacted each other, sadly none of them knew or remembered the specific anatomy of a Perrachi starship, as PSR officers were required to.

On a Ni'Calls ship, a lone figure witnessed the barrels of the guns pointing directly at him. For a split second, a flash, and then...

Blinding white light.

Many Perrachi serving on board had a foreboding feeling that somewhere, something had gone terribly wrong.

((Remember that the nukes the PSR is using are several hundred times more powerful than the most destructive human nuke ever produced, and if you blow up three of them in one relatively small space...))

"What the heck just happened?!?" Val'ones said, picking himself up off the floor. Even at their distance, the shockwave was strong enough to shake the ship to it's foundations.
"Ah, the PSR ship's auxillary guns fired. They targeted the Emancipator." The sensor operator said.
"WHAT!?!" Val'ones screamed, opening a channel to the whole task force.
"This is Commander Val'ones! The Perrachi opened fire on the Ni'calls after they fired a non-lethal weapon! All ships, combat formations! Move into position and open fire on the PSR fleet! They just signed a declaration of war!" He said. He opened a channel to the GPA headquarters, and fed the video feed to the Orealyanis subsector. Photos ships opened fire full power, antimatter weapons and all. The PSR had just pissed off the hornets' nest. The Devastator dispatched rescue shuttles to the Emancipator.
