The Infection, Part 1
« on: June 05, 2010, 12:22:06 pm »
The Tier-5 commander, Ry'olis, had been temporarily promoted to Commander General while Commander Val'ones was sick and in the hospital. The task force he was in control of at the moment was running some partrols near the inner part of the galaxy...
"Uh, Sir? I'm picking up some awfully strange readings about three lightyears from our current location." The sensor operator said.
"Ok, that could be what we've been looking for. Set a course there immidiatly." Ry'olis ordered. Within 30 seconds they had turned to that direction and jumped to warp. They dropped out at their destination and saw a wierd construct.
"What in the name of the creator is that? It looks like a ship, but it's...." He trailed off, everyone else realized the same thing. "Scan that thing. And while we're at it, launch some boarding craft, let's look at the inside of that thing." He ordered. The sensor operator began the scan, and soon a pletora of boarding craft were launched. They docked with the ship just as the scan completed.
"This is impossible!" The sensor operator said, looking and the screen.
"What?" Ry'olis said, walking down the stairs and standing over his shoulder.
"The ship is a melding of both organic and inorganic substances." The sensor operator said.
"So that thing is, quite literally, a living ship?" Ry'olis asked.
"From our scans, it would appear so." The sensor operator said. Ry'olis bolted back up the stairs.
"Alright people, this could be bad. Power to weapons and shield, prepare the bombers, and for the love of the creator, call back that damn boarding paryty!" Ry'olis ordered. He opened the channel with the boarding crew and heard a maelstrom of screamiing, roaring, plasma rifle fire, and so many other background noises he couldn't distinguish them all.
"Damnit! What's going on down there!?!" Ry'olis roared into the intercom.
"Creator help me! This whole friggin' ship is alive or something. The crew is all mutated and insane...AAARGH, GET IT OFF-" The line got cut. Ry'olis looked out to the ship, covered with red and brown tentacles and growths.
"What in the name of the Creator have we unleashed..." Ry'olis said.

Ry'olis stood looking at the living ship when suddenly the channel partially returned. All he got was screen snow, but was able to here two words:
"We live..." It was the voice of the Photos he saw just moments ago, but was laced with what sounded like a resonating bass undertone.
"Sweet mother of... GET US OUTTA HERE!" Ry'olis ordered. They set a course for the nearest GPA outpost. As the ship jumped into warp, he readied the scans for transmission immidiatly. They stopped right in front of a colonized GPA planet.
"Attention GPA outpost, this is Acting Commander General Ry'olis Okaera, I we need to land, we have something of utter importance to talk to the leaders about, you might want to call them here." Ry'olis said into the channel he opened.
((Yuu, it's at you right now. At least, that's if you want to take part.))

The surface base on the small oceanic planet received the transmission and promptly arranged for the vessel's arrival.

//ACG Okaera, this is tower. You are cleared to land on dock number 106. An escort team will arrive there shortly.//

Back on land, or more appropriately water, Major Taka's mind was diverted from the mound of paperwork in front of her desk as the door to her office slid open and one of her subordinates came in with rather unpleasant news.

"Mam.", the Chivi Captain saluted the Luzonian Major. "We've got word from tower. A Photos task group just landed and their ACG would like to have a word with you."



"What would they go all the way to this backwater?", the Luzonian officer wondered as she marched down the hallways with a couple of Orealyianis escorts.

The Photos commander was practically hyperventilating. Of all the things that could go wrong while he's in charge, this was ten times worse. The door opened, and a Luzonian major walked in.
"Thank you for your promptness, major. We encountered a little...ah...situation." Ryolis said, and he transfered the data, which he had stored in his armour's computer, to the datapads on the table. He motioned for the major to look.

"Situation?", the major murmured, wondering what it could possibly be. The general in front of her was pretty stirred up for this to be just another local pirate or some other common happening.

Her escorts moved slightly closer to her as she promptly picked up one of the devices. Focusing her eyes on the screen, she scanned the information therein as her pupils quickly doubled in size after realizing the officer's grim revelation.

What in the name of the King?!

Her eyes became fixed on the images of the twisted, seemingly corrupted vessel presented before her.

"General.", Taka said intently as she lifted her head from the monitor. There was no further need for words. Her thoughts were perfectly clear from the look in her eyes.

I'll contact Sector Command.

"Right. I'm going to get back out there, keep a distance, and run some more scans on it, that way we know what we're dealing with." Ry'olis said, heading back for his shuttle. When he was properly seated in the Troop Bay, it took off back for the Dreadnought in orbit. He made his way to the Bridge Lift, and shot up the short tower to the bridge. Everything was ok, but everyone seemed a little freaked out.
"What happened?" Ry'olis asked.
"That soldier's transimission didn't cut when you turned the monitor off. Video came back before we left range, we got this."The Comms officer said, pulling up a video feed on the large communications monitor on the front of the bridge. It was the feed from that same Photos, and they were repairing the distress beacon!
"We're recieving that distress beacon now. Doubtless someone else is already there." The officer said.

In space, no one can hear you scream unless your transmitting it on the right radio frequency.

((I know. Its just that I was thinking on how many different ways the infected will take the ship over.))

"A Photos ship is sending out a distress beacon near our predicted patrol route, sir. Shall I pursue it?" A Ni'Calls officer reported from somewhere on the cavernous bridge of the Firestar-Class Capital Ship leading a small patrol of 3. Its commander, a certain Fleet Commander Valeris, replied with interest: "Hmm. Yes, pursue it. It may help relations after that damn clash we had over near Perrawiih." Another voice responded to this within the bridge, "Aye Sir." Several minutes later, the small board in front of the commander loaded what appeared to be a ship situated in a sizable field of nothing. On the battleboard it seemed to be just an unidentified ship, but looking out the massive panoramic windows in front of him, he let out a lout, static like noise, the Ni'Calls equivalent of a gasp or shout. "What in the name of-- What happened to that ship!" He paused, then said, "Open a line. I want to talk to them."

Onboard the infected ship, in the bridge of the relic to be exact, was the current seat of the Infection intelligence, a pulsing mass of flesh that acted as the brain, where the clumped knowledge could reside. Of course, this was not a weak point, as it could transfer this knowledge into any infected creature. Currently, the concious of the Infection was feeling triumphant over it's recent gain. There was something about these life forms though. Even though it controlled them, it could feel their resistance. Their resistance was no match for it's power, but it still gave it something to stir while the ship was restored to function. Already, both the homing beacon and communications systems were back online. Not only that, but the "boarding pods" the new ones came on were infected, ready to spread. Abruptly, the communications system sprung into life. There was a creature on the other end of the line. This came as a surprise to the conciousness-it hadn't expected more victims so soon. The Photos working on the comms stepped in front of the camera, and said what had been said before:
"We live".

By now, the three ships were circling the small Infected ship. //Ehhh.... Pardon me, but... who is "we"? What happened? Are you alright? Do you require assistance?// Fleet Commander Valeris said, puzzled at this encounter. Something was definitely wrong here...
