"Why, none other than the very being which stands before you now...", the commander said in a rather casual tone as he began to wave his arms about, the consequent movement of the colossal blades outside solidifying his point.

"Edin...", the commander continued, though now in a more serious voice. "You may call me, Edin..."

"I must say, the result of your efforts during the incident on Olosis was, quite unexpected...", the commander known as Edin began to point out as several of his arms started clawing the air. "... especially despite your status as a very unsophisticated lot."



Kuuruk Orbital Space

As the colossal creature's blades began to move about, the smaller weavers' movements began to increase in both pace and precision, sending the defenders wave upon wave of highly unpredictable swarms.

Reaching towards all directions, the giant entity's claws began to hook in several of the fragments from the previously fallen assault node.

//I have, a very interesting proposition for you, and the Stellar Republic as an entirety...

Would you care, to hear out, this lone warrior's offer?//

Tal'sev looked around him as the chaos on the bridge was intensified as the fighter swarms approached. Lasers flashed out of the fleet, hitting the incoming fighter swarms in a attempt to do as much damage as possible. The impactor squadron flashed by again, flashes of light showed where their impactors hit, though a number of them was on the central blade.

"And what is this offer?"

//What is this offer, you ask?//

There was slight moment of silence on Edin's end of the dialogue as he conjured several holographic images and promptly sent them to the E.S.S. Victory's bridge.



Twelve-Stringed Weaver, Central Chamber

"Simple, my young admiral..." Edin began his response by opening a direct videofeed of himself towards Tal'sev's flagship.

Spreading his arms across, a dastardly smirk came across his face as several seconds passed before he finally continued his answer.

Tal'sev looked at every hologram, all in a language he didn't understand, likely the Nameless' language. And what did he meant by life? Multiple possible explanations flashed through his head.

Ascension to the next plane of existence? No, otherwise the Nameless would have already done that.

The answer to the meaning and purpose of life? Maybe, from what he had heard from the Wexxians, they were a highly ancient race.

His mind wandered on that possibility. The meaning and purpose of life has been bugging scientists and philosophers in both the Hell-An Empire and Stellar Republic for centuries. If the answer was discovered, it could change everything both their nations ever knew.

A ensign ran up to him holding a datapad, Tal'sev read the contents, and gave him a nod. Before the ensign ran to, the Admiral was quickly began writing down more things on the datapad. He handed it to the ensign, who after a momentary glance at the contents, ran to the helmsman.

"I'm afraid I'm going to have to decline your offer," Tal'sev said. Both halves of the fleet fired one last salvo and jumped into warp, moving away quickly. "I like my life as it is right now without you Nameless running around, enslaving worlds. Goodbye now."

The last two Apocalypse impactors in the fleet and sixteen standard impactors, all they could launch without missing, rammed into core and central blade of the Weaver, along with a few magnetic accelerator shots from the Galdeen Mark 3s and several hundred nuclear and fusion warheads.

Twelve-Stringed Weaver, Central Chamber

Sparks flew across the chamber while the central blade took the brunt of the Coalition's attack. Edin felt the strings around him tighten as he curled his arms around him to brace from the storm of impacts.


Judging from your response, it seems those two haven't bothered telling anyone about it at all...

How sad...



"Calculator! Initiate self destruct sequence and open emergency long-distance hyperlink to Assault Carrier!", Edin commanded his artificial companion. Soon enough, a series of concentric glowing circles began to form around the Nameless weaver.

"We're leaving..."


Such bliss it is, to live peacefully in the dark!

Perhaps, someday, your people shall be familiar enough with what the Nameless has to offer...

Perhaps...




Kuuruk Orbital Space

The vast eternal night seemingly turned into day as the multitude of impactors and other powerful weapons pelted the Twelve-Stringed Weaver with enough force to crack open a small world several times over.

Slowly, the vastly devastated colossus began to give in to its own weight. As if pouring salt into the exceedingly fresh wound, the fragments of assault node which the weaver held in its arms began to descend towards the creature's core, colliding with great force and turning the being's body into a molten ball of scrap.

With the creature letting out a massive death wail and quickly falling to its inevitable demise, it seemed as if the battle was truly, finally over.

This was not to be so.

Without warning, a massive quake of energy raced across space, suddenly causing any remaining weavers to enter a spasmodic state as they veered off in all matter of directions, seemingly out of control.

But this would be the least of the defenders' worries. For as fate would have it, the Nameless had apparently set the stage for one last challenge against Kuuruk's guardians. With a massive flash of blinding light, the mass that was the giant weaver's remains exploded in a tumultuous flurry of light, each fragment seemingly shooting wildly across the heavens until their true objective finally became clear.

Every single one of the significantly sized fragments began to change course and head deeper into Kiavik. It only took trackers and lay observes alike to realize what was happening to the cloud of semi-relativistic objects.

All of them were headed for a high-speed collision with the Pentekonterus homeworld below.


Do try your best not to get killed by this small parting gift!

'Til the day this galaxy's people finally comes to their senses and accepts the glorious offer presented by the Nameless themselves...

'Til then...

Fleet Tal'sev flagship, E.S.S. Victory, Titan-class

"All ships, drop out of warp! Stop those fragments!" Tal'sev yelled as the bridge once again went into controlled chaos. "Where the hell is our reinforcements?! They should have been here hours ago!"

"The first Pentekonterus fleet from the Hell-An shipyards will be here in 43.4 minutes, Admiral!" A ensign reported. The view of warped space around them shifted back into normal patterns as the fleet deactivated their warp engines.

Thats much too long, Tal'sev thought. At best, we might not even have ten minutes.

The light vessels were the first to open fire on the incoming fragments. Their missiles, gauss, EM, shock, and laser weapons flashed out of the comparatively small group of ships into the massive fragments. The capital ships quickly joined in, their plasma, magnetic accelerator, and particle weapons adding their power to the mix. Miniature suns bloomed, then disappeared as nuclear and fusion weapons either vaporized or threw off their courses somewhat. But even with all of their firepower, it simply wasn't enough.

"We aren't going to make it," Tal'sev whispered to himself. The A.I. noted what he said, but didn't say anything, only concentrating on taking out the fragments.



Kuuruk, Republic Planetary Defense Command, five miles below unspecified mountain range

"Evacuate everyone to the shelters! Activate the planetary defense cannons!" Kraik yelled as people from multiple races ran about to do their assignments.

What few anti-starship particle and magnetic cannons that had been constructed rose from their protective mountain shells. They began firing once they were fully deployed, the particle cannons firing more frequently thanks to using only energy and what particles were carried along the beams.



Even with every last ounce of courage and bravery the defenders had, they knew they won't be able to prevent at least some fragments from impacting Kuuruk.

Kuuruk Surface

Everywhere, the tiniest of shards from the broken fragments rained down. The fleets above were stopping the larger ones, but this hail wrought havoc upon civilians and livestock. To counteract this, the various goverments had been directing workers and others into a series of bunkers built during the Endless War. The turret defenses at Nirulimuka and Ka'Raspuv, as well as other metropolises, were helping, but it could not save the countryside. In many smaller towns, homes an businesses were destroyed. In addition, the uninhabited continent was bombarded as well.

Interstellar Space

The First Aerospace Battalion of Kabalu was desprately in need of a shortcut. The highest-ranking officer on board any of the ships, Brigadier General Mikkil Nottus, was barking out orders to search for a quicker path.

"There's got to be a way to get there in time to stop those fragments!"
"Sir, there may be a way."
"What is it?"
"If we take a route through this nebula here, we should be able to reach our home in less than half the time it would normally-"
"NO! If I lose anyone in there, the entire fleet is doomed! We're going to have o find a safer way."
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Elsewhere...

Edin's silhouette can be seen amidst the dimly light corridors as he made his way out of a small portal. Slowly turning towards his back, a very familiar visage appeared within his sights.

"What seems to be your business here, hmm, Corrupted?", he stared straight at the Corrupted being a short stroll away from him as it slowly walked towards him.

Bracing for a mild confrontation, the Weaver stood his ground as he glared coldly at the creature approaching him, which was apparently an Orealyianis, though one which was undoubtedly, if only slightly altered in appearance.

Just as the Corrupted was several meters away from his apparent target, a large and sudden blur consumed Edin's vision as what felt like an arm began to press on his left shoulder. It was only several seconds after that the commander realized the massive three-pronged claw that was now bearing down on him.

"You...", an odd smile crept across Edin's face as his eyes turned to the Corrupted which was now standing right beside him. "You really are quite skilled! That, I admit!"

"Hmph...", the creature let go of Edin's shoulder and promptly went its way, but not before the Weaver tried to have the last word.

"Don't abuse your luck, Corrupted!", Edin said to the Oreaylianis which was now quite a distance away. "Don't let your guard down, simply because you happen to be paired up with that traitor."

The Corrupted suddenly stopped at these words, soliciting another dark stare from Edin.

"You should be concerned more about yourself...", the Corrupted swiftly retorted. "... traitor to the Knights of Sporda."



As the vast storm of fragments that breached the planet's defenses began to reach its climax, the already evident destruction was made more pronounced by the impact of several larger fragments on the world's oceans, creating colossal waves which bombarded the continents' coasts. All over the seaside, a panorama of utter devastation welcomed anyone who was lucky enough to survive the event out in the open.

The story wasn't any different wherever you looked on the highly vulnerable surface, and in extremely dire cases, even entire local ecosystems were greatly damaged by the onslaught as flora and fauna were crushed left and right by hail-like string of impacts.

Fleet Tal'sev flagship, E.S.S. Victory, Titan-class

Tal'sev watched in horror as fragments continued to rain down on Kuuruk along with the rest of the fleet. Even with their best efforts, the planet was being hit hard. Sighing, he turned away to the comm. officer.

"Tell the fleet to begin mop-up operations. The fighters that are left will hinder any operations we make in the system. And fire off a report to Galieen, let them know about EVERYTHING we found here and tell them that I recommend stepping up production for the Apocalypse-class impactors." The officer nodded and began composing the message with the ship AI's assistance.

"Sir," The sensor operator called out. "Long range scans detect activity eight L.Y. (Light Years) away, around a nebula. Looks to be a fleet, but we can't get a precise I.D. on them with the interference from the nebula. Shall I commence deep scan?"

The admiral nodded and so with a tapping of keys, the operator began doing a active scan of the unknown fleet. After a minute, he looked up from his screen.

"Its a Pentekonterus fleet sir. The First Aerospace Battalion if the yard master at Tai'gan is correct."

Tal'sev nodded again. "Good. Comms, let their fleet commander know of the situation here if they don't already."



Kuuruk Orbital Space

As all this happened, groups of destroyers and cruisers broke formation and plotted intercept courses with the remaining Nameless fighters. Once they caught up with them, they blew each group away with massed firepower while a few ships took their wreckage for future study in a safer location.

The remaining ships continued shooting down the last few fragments still heading to Kuuruk while shuttles were sent down to assist with the search and rescue parties on the planet in the wake of the massive tsunamis and putting out what wild fires there were caused by the falling smaller wreckage.
