((Um, they fired on all the Photos ships. 1.Val'ones is dead, considering his ship was targeted, and 2.even if they did target the Emancipator, he'd still be dead. Do you understand "Nuclear weapon hundreds of times more powerful than the most destructive human one"? His ship would be vaporized or at least blasted to pieces, and the light would be unbearable. Nukes aren't torpedoes. THEY'RE FRIGGIN NUKES.))

((1. You weren't very clear. 2. They aren't clumped together, they're a good distance apart. Note that the detonation made the ship shake. 3. What do you think these ships are made of? Yeah, the nuke's concussive wave would damage em, but I think that with the armour, and the shield to take the concussion, that the ship would be relativly undamaged. And seriously, you made it seem like you were shooting at the Emancipator.))

((Oh, give it up. "Note that the detonation made the ship shake"?! This isn't Star Trek! Just let these guys die already! I am ashamed at how unwilling you are to just admit that this incident would make a very good storyline. Instead of embracing tragedy, conflict, drama, and everything else that makes a story good, you're just applying a Good Guy Shield to them and dragging this on for an unbearable amount of time. We aren't playing a competitive game, we're roleplaying, i.e. creating a good story. 9/11, Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima, and all those other terrible things happened, so why can't they happen here? I'll admit I wished they didn't happen, but this is fiction and it makes for a good story.))

"ALL NON-CONTROL HANDS, RETREAT TO SECURE AREAS." Captain Vellak shouted. "ALL CONTROL HANDS, DIVERT ENERGY TO THE EMP CANNON. DROP THE SHIELDS, MAINTAIN MAGNETIC DEFLECTOR." Several Ni'Calls situated around the huge open bridge exclaimed into their microphones. "Captain! Drop shields? THEY'RE FIRING NUCLEAR WARHEADS AT US!"

The captain anticipated that response. "We still have point defense weapons! If we can detonate the bombs or redirect them, we don't need powerful shields. The Magnetic Delfector will do."

//Attention fleet, do not attack. Begin evasive maneuvers. Only fire upon the warheads.//

All around, the Ni'Calls ships began weaving about wildly, and the glimmer of the shields around Emancipator dropped.

"Captain, multiple Photos ships descending onto the planet!" a commanding officer said. He selected several icons on his console display, and the center battle board bliked an icon over several shuttles on the simulation. "They must be evacuating. Send a message to the Perrachi. Record now."

//Attention Perrachi forces. Several Photos Evac shuttles have been sent down to the surface. We gather that they are evacuation shuttles. Please, do not fire on the shuttles, we will allow you to begin your governmental trial period. We will take care of the Photos. Please cease your fire on us, we are not a 'true' enemy, and are currently assisting you. Please allow the Photos to leave the system, this battle is over, but I fear the war has only just begun.//

"Maneuver into position to the Photos ships" said Vellak reluctantly. "Begin transmission now."

//Attention Photos forces. You've presumably just evacuated commanding members of the Makal government. You've essentially, in theory, stopped the fighting in this arena. Please continue it elsewhere. We will escort you out of the system, whereupon you can continue bombing each other in another system. Perhaps you will consider settling this on the diplomatic battlefield?//

((Ok, this has gone on far enough. UFO, you’re way out of line, for someone who apparently hates technobabble and scientific inaccuracy so much you sure seem quick to use it when it's on your side. The ships are in space there is a nearly unlimited area of movement for them to battle in, no "cluster shots" work here. Secondly, these ships are made out of stuff necessary to traverse hyperspace, so I'm sure they can handle second-hand damage from a nuke. Fourth, going all HAHA SUPERNUKES! Is a major jerk move, if you really cared about story, you'd allow the result you want to plausibly happen, instead of shoehorning them in. You just need to stop and accept that you can’t control everything so get of your high horse and play nice.))

@UFO King ((I'm not trying to drag this out, I'm trying to be realistic. And yes, while it would be dramatic, I don't exactly want my race's main military leader to die so early, after I lost the first one I came up with! Excuse me. If you have a large explosion, it would give a concussive wave, even through space, would it not? And if that smacked into a wide, Dreadnought sized ship, it would be shaken up, would it not? And how can you compare real life events to the event transpiring now, when the technology of what's happening NOW is centuries beyond what there was back then! If 9/11 happened with 2 centuries ahead wort of advanced technology, would the towers have fallen? Probably not! If Pearl Harbor had accoured when there were nearly instantly-scrambling fighters, and automated plasma-firing anti-air guns, would it have gone so bad? I doubt it! They "can't happen here", as you put it, because what you're looking for wouldn't happen so easily with 2-3 centuries worth of advanced technology. And granted, those nukes are powerful, but I feel that AUXILLARY WEAPONS taking out a DREADNOUGHT, a very large ship, mind you, in a single volley is either godmodding, or damn close to it.
I mean, in RP terms, not even the antimatter weaponry mounted by the Photos recently has that kind of stopping power. Please, you're pushing it. I think you should change it, make it a litttle more fair. Besides, how could they aim that fast just getting hit by a massive EMP. And come to think of it, how did you get power to your Auxillary Weapons when you just got hit with an EMP burst that took out god knows how many Core Combine ships? I request you change it.))
//Are you kidding me?!? THEY JUST LAUNCHED NUKES! NO WA-//
Val'ones was cut off.
"Sir, we can't fight. That concussive blast fried out targeting systems. Our weapons can't aim."
//Fine. We'll leave.// Val'ons finished. He ordered all ships to jump out to the homeworld for repairs.

//Don't fire on the ships? You must be joking. We will make no effort to cease our destruction of tyranny.//

"Fire when ready, Admirals. Avoid Ni'Calls ships, and destroy every single Photos shuttle. With luck, you'll catch them while they have one of the dictator's lackeys inside. In the meantime, make no effort to stop your advance towards Grevek until you reach the Imperial Palace."

The ships sped around the blast and went towards the planet, while the smaller, faster ones zoomed off to the Photos shuttles in unison, their automated minds having one objective: Destroy.


((Fine. I surrender to you Magnificent Bastards. There's no need to retaliate with such incredible rudeness. Let's just delete that nasty argument, okay?))

((You're confusing the Dakara with the Emancipator. The Kinetic Disruptor weapon was used to take out a majority of the CC fleet it came up against, but that thing can take the energy out of an object to a point that it disintegrates. The Emancipator uses a directed EMP cannon, which just gives electric machines headaches. And plus, notice how I added "in theory" to the end of that bit, I anticipated it might not work, and gave UFO a chance to pick the realistic way instead of ME shoehorning in the idea that nothing could escape the cannon. Oh, and plus, your rebuttal to the Pearl harbor etc. comment could be challenged by this: If they had the technology to fight the attacks, they would also have the ability to fight that protection just as effectively. Think of that saying "keeping up with the Johnsons" or what ever.))

((Ok, Key word. You said that they would have the technology to protect against that. If UFO's supernukes were that powerful, technology would have armour that can stand against that type of attack. No matter how far you get, You eventually start using high-power peashooters on all sides, then someone makes that epic weaponn development, then everyone else gets it, then everyone develops armour against it, they you're stuck with peashooters again. That's my point. And UFO, we aren't bastards, you were simply out of line, it in no way shape or form makes it alright to call us bastards. Show more self control, please.))
"Sir, they're firing on the shuttles!"
"What!?! All Dreadnoughts, scramble fighters, get them off those shuttles!" Val'ones said, checking the charge on the warp drive. 75%. Come on, just a little faster, he thought to himself.

((Let's just delete that nasty argument, okay?))

The robotic fighters sped towards the slow shuttles, but soon picked up the signal of several Photos fighters advancing. The best strategy for defeating such pilots raced through their quantum computer brains, and some divisions broke off. Soon a magnificent battle was underway, with no side having the clear upper hand. However, the distraction of it all was sufficient to keep the Photos off the remaining fighters' tails as they gained on the shuttles. Lasers were aimed, missiles were readied, and they fired.

The first shuttle exploded, molten slag flying everywhere. Crimson beams missed the next, but they soon wouldn't.

"Graah! Set the Point Defense network to fighters, they are active targeting, not linked to a computer." The crew oblighed. They got a lock with the Plasma Lances.
"On my mark......Lance 1, Lance 2, Fire!" Two beams shot away from the damaged ship. They each penetrated their first targer, and hit a second behind. There were four down. Countless more to go.

//And so the die is cast.// The hologram of headmaster Talsenreave said, startling Captain Vellak. //Please withdraw the fleet, Captain.//

"Very well admiral." Captain Vellak said. "Withdraw the fleet, take us out of here." He said to the crew around him. Presently, a majority of the fleet began filing back into the nooks and crannies of the huge command ship, readying themselves for the jump to warp speed.

The fleet left without a word to the other combatants.

//Talsenreave has withdrawn his fleet. Send him a food basket with a thank-you note, as is custom.//

//Aye, Prime Minister.///



Fighters whizzed in every direction, firing lasers in fractions of a second and hitting their exact targets. The battle slowly turned in the PSR's direction, but the Photos fighters had heavier weapons and were tougher. Even so, they couldn't stop the Perrachi armada's mighty advance and the remaining fighters' continuing destruction of the shuttles. Now only a handful remained.

"Oh come on! Please tell me they're on our side! PLEASE!" Val'ones said, desperate. He waited for a response, and glanced at the charge indicator. 95%.
