//Very well...//

The GPA made room for the Demolisher and its subordinates as the two groups began to dismantle the infected ships. They didn't let their guard down completely, however, as there was still the possibility that this was just another underhanded maneuver courtesy of a certain Kari'u'sadow. Still, the Terasi's captain felt something different from the Shadow's words this time around. He wasn't sure how he came to such a conclusion but, deep inside, he somehow felt that they just might be on to something, about this strange new finding.

((I think this might need an OOC as a feel kind of like an intruder here. But anyway, great so far! If that thing hits a civilized planet we could have an astrographical disaster on our hands here.))

Meanwhile, back on the outpost...

The station was abuzz, what with the Shadow suddenly popping out of nowhere, and just when a nearby bio-disaster reared its ugly head at the Agency and its affiliates. Regardless, they soon received orders from Sector Command to let the Shadow in.

//Shuttle, this is tower. You are cleared to land on dock number 501. An escort team will arrive there shortly.//

Inside the base, security scrambled to the station's upper levels as the welcoming committee formed around the dock. They got clearance from above, but that wasn't going to stop them from being crazy prepared for anything Kari' might pull out of his sleeves.

//Confirmed, tower, landing.// The Shadow leader said, setting the shuttle down as gently as he could on the docking platform. He opened the back hatch, and the power armour-housed blob stepped out of the shuttle to the awaiting escort team, who promptly escorted him to the meeting room. He sat down in one of the chairs. Across the room, he got engrossed looks.
"Ah, right. Let me begin." u'Sadow took a breath. "I've seen this substance before. It was the handiwork of the ancestor race of the Photos." A look of shock and confusion spread through the room. "Ah." He cackled. "You don't know the whole story, do you? Well, I'll explain out a little more. The Photos are not an original race. They were crafted from an ancient race. This race- well, I should back it up a little. Our empire was close to taking over the entire galaxy. There were but a handful of empires left that were not under our dominion. The leader of this were the Pok'thuj, who are the ancestors of the Photos. The Pok'thuj formed an alliance with the last remaining empires, and the forged a plan; apart from our empire, the Pok'thuj Empire was the superpower of the galaxy. Their weapons couldn't match ours, however, as they were a peaceful people, who had a strong belief in justice, liberty, the whole nine yards, we all know what I'm talking about. Anyway, they had the other empires protect them while the built a superweapon able to destroy us. This weapon, discovered by us shortly before our fall, was called the Splitter Cannon. It ripped a hole in between universes, and then somehow projected this hole, like a stabilized teleport field of some sort. They used this time to build their military as well. They fought us back to our home base, a massive space station. Just as we thought we were finished, they fired the Splitter Cannon, banishing the station and our remaining fleet to a parallel universe. Then, fearing corruption due to their new power, decided to leave the galaxy. However, they modified some of their DNA and seeded it. This modified DNA grew into the Photos creature we all know today. Now, you're all probably wondering, just what DOES this history lesson have to do with the new discovery? Well, this virus, codenamed KV-247, was the Pok'thuj back-up plan, in the event the Splitter Cannon failed to eliminate us. My guess is that there was an accident on the holding ship, and the temporal staisis unit holding the KV-247 samples failed, and the virus got loose. In all actuality, they probably would have done more damage to us unleashing KV-247." u'Sadow said. "Any questions?"

The Chivi officer was slightly put aback by the shadow's sudden barrage of exposition. Still, the Agency has had its fair share of outlandish encounters ever since its inception. Moving his chair closer to the table, he leaned forward as he extended towards Kari's direction.

"Are there more of these containers, out there, sir?", the captain quickly asked, not realizing that he had just used an honorific on a shadow, of all people. He had his reasons, however. It was only recently that a certain photos official got infected by a hallucinogenic strain and caused a giant fuss in USSS space. Who knew if the current cleaning program would be able to catch up with every single one of its carriers...

And now this happened. The Agency's hands were too tied up as it is to be able to launch a galaxy-wide treasure-hunting expedition. Dealing with the rising tensions between the Cabinet and the PSR was the Agency's current top priority.

"There were about 30 pods on that ship model, and there was only one ship designated to carry the virus. It could have launched the virus in excape pods. I'd reccomend sending in a team to check. I'd further reccomend the Photos. And, mind you this. The infection is a virus-machine fusion. It can be knocked out by E.M.P's and Ion weaponry. My reccomended strategy would be to hit the ship with an E.M.P, then rush the ship with boarders. The virus will reboot, but it will take about 15 minutes to reboot all those tiny little computers, cuz' there's several trillion of em on that ship, if not more. Also, this virus HATES, and I mean HATES, the cold. If you can find some way to ice the ship, metaphorically speaking, it will drastically affect the infection." Kari' said.

Back in the fray...

Major Taka was about to join in on the operation when she suddenly received a message. It was the Captain.



//To all units, this is Major Taka of GPA Regional Command! We've discovered something about this thing, you might want to hear about it...//

As she relayed Kari's exposition, the Coalition's units began to slightly fall back while calling in for additional reinforcements. Soon, a large package of cryo-weapons and EMP would rain down on the infected ships. Boarding teams soon went on standby, awaiting their signal.

As the infection spread, and more of the core ship became operational, things started to look grim. The ship revealed itself to be ancient, as Antimatter weapons, similar to those discovered by the Photos, were engaged. Luckily, the targeting system was not online, so they were firing blind. If it wasn't for the fact that those beams would destroy the ships in one shot, it would have been almost comical, seeing glowing bolts of golden energy spewing out in random directions. On this ship, the "hive mind", as it could be addressed, was planning. Always planning. Always evolving. That was it's job; to think, to plan, to direct. The whole galaxy would be purged of life, as was their purpose.

As wave upon wave of antimatter rained down on the ships a large portion of the less maneuverable units can be seen falling back or barreling out of the infected vessel's effective range, luckily to much effect. Still, one unfortunate Chivi battlesuit was caught by one of the beams, annihilating its occupant and several other proximal armors.

"What?! Everyone split up!", the Terasi's captain was rather shocked as he hurriedly ordered everyone to scramble their formations.

Several minutes passed as everyone tried to dodge the relentless hail of punishment. One by one, people got caught in the blast, Taka herself barely escaping death several times in a row.

Eventually, a sign of hope came into view as reinforcements finally entered the fray. Not wasting any time, the Choro Deidalus vessels which carried the cryogenics unleashed salvo upon salvo at the rampaging assailant. Hopefully, it would be enough to ice it long enough for landing teams to get inside the Ni'Calls vessels and extract any remaining survivors.

The instant the cryogenic weapons hit the ship, there was a conglomerate scream of pain. The infection was shut down. Everything on the ship stopped, while the cells encompassing the infection began to restart. It was like an electric shock from a tazer to them, except about 40 times the scale.

A Galdeen deep space exploration fleet moved through the silent darkness of the void. They have been ordered to attempt to make contact with the alien races listed by the Space Union ambassador: Minister WEI. A subspace data burst sent by Galieen had data recovered from the Union's data probe they gave them, the fleet used the data to greatly improve all of their systems. They now could go to Warp factor 7.4, they had a 36.4 light-year sensor range, and much more effective biosphere in the modified Mk 2 Type 3 heavy transport. They now had a expected 4 to 5 standard Galieen years before they had to return home for supplies, thats over twice as long their original expected time frame!

The deep space fleet is whats considered as a medium sized fleet. Five Mk 1 Type 3 destroyers, five Mk 1 Type 4 missile destroyers, three modified Mk 1 Type 5 colony ships that contain frozen alien flora and fauna samples, four Mk 1 Type 6 survey ships, each containing different types of research labs, five Mk 1 Type 7 cargo ships, containing supplies for the fleet with one containing military troops just in case, two Luur battle carriers, a combination of a carrier and small battleship, a single Mk 2 Type 1 battleship acting as the command ship for the fleet, and a single modified Mk 2 Type 3 heavy transport that grows the food for the fleet.

Admiral Tlekn onboard the battleship Pride of Galieen watched as the distorted stars passed by as the fleet traveled at warp factor 5. They had just finished scanning the wormhole they discovered a month earlier and had left a probe there to keep scanning it. His train of thoughts was interrupted when the subspace sensor operator called out to him.

"Admiral! I'm detecting weapons fire! Unknown signatures!"

"How far away?" Tlekn replied.

"Uhh... About six light-years away, sir."

"Helm, change course to the unknown signatures, maximum warp. Looks like we're about to meet our first aliens, people. Bring up red alert throughout the fleet. When we drop out,  have the non-combat ships drop out 7 light seconds away from the unknowns and leave three destroyers and a battle carrier to protect them."

"Yes sir, orders are being relayed to the fleet." Reported the comm officer.

Several minutes later, the fleet dropped out of warp, the combat ships a quarter of a light second away from the battle.

"Do we have a match in the Space Union data banks?" Asked the Admiral.

"We got matches, there are several groups of ships. One is commanded by a race called the Photos, one is the Ni'Calls, and the other is the GPA, a alliance of some sort. There is one ship the Union data banks can't identify, and its covered in whats looks to be a combination of nano tech and a virus. Never seen anything like before. All the other ships is attacking the unknown one."

"Alright, power up the rail guns and particle lance cannons. Shields to full. Comm, activate the Union's translator systems we installed, all frequencies. Lets see if can assist them and make some friends."

"Channel is open, sir." Reported the comm officer.

Admiral Tlekn nodded and looks back up to see tiny short lived flashes of light that indicated a space battle.

"This is Admiral Tlekn of the Galdeen Coalition. Do you require assistance?"
