    The Battle for Vega IV

    Several thousand kilometers from Vega IV, the massive and mighty starship that carried the last of Humanity plowed through space towards the Saturn-sized planet. In orbit around the planet, however, were a few obstacles. There was the eight Harbinger ships left to defend the planet, which was no easy task for Earth's fleet, comprised of only 4 Battleships, 8 Cruisers, 3 Destroyers, and the Dreadnought Zaftra. There was also the matter of any ground forces the Harbingers might have had ground-side.

    Throughout the ship, the call to General Quarters began to sound as what little weapons they had control over came online, the different tank and 4x4 operators scrambling about the Motor Pool to get their vehicles up and running for any ground ops that would be coming up. The Barracks, which were attached to the massive Motor Pool on both sides, began to fill with life, Marines scrambling out of bed and suiting up for the impending battle, as well as Conscripts rushing through the Motor Pool to the attached G-Hanger. Squad Bravo was also roused from their sleep by the call to general quarters, being one of the specialist squads in Alpha Battalion, one of the finest of Marine Company Juliet, which was one of three companies that had made it to the ship on Exodus day with enough men to be called a company.

    As the men were roused, Admiral Stukov and Admiral Harris stood on the Bridge in the center of the ship, discussing how they were going to go about the attack. "No, Alex, you're not listening to me! We need to stall for time while Ariok tries to unlock the Deck Guns. Deploying the fleet now will only result in casualties on our side." Harris states, referring to the eight triple gun batteries sitting on the long flight deck that made up the front half of the ship. "No, James, you are not listening to me. If we hold our fleet back now and only use the gun batteries we have now, our shields won't be able to hold off their firepower long enough for Ariok to get those batteries online." Stukov says, his Russian accent showing through as he speaks, turning to a small pedestal where Ariok could normally display himself. "Ariok, what are your thoughts?"

    Linda was awake but still in her bunk when the call began to sound, staring at the bottom of the bunk above her and fingering the wedding band on her left hand. She immediately sprang to her feet and suited up, jogging over to the spot in the hanger where her squad was supposed to marshal.

    (Not fantastic, but somebody had to be first.)

      It was a nice day for the young doctor, he was eating his breakfast after read half a novel who stop to read when he was learning the rules of the army and all that shit, unfortunately he also played some old videogames and continued his experiment to create waffles with stones, that he restart after a long time ago, but of course her assistants were there to end all the unfinished this that he try to do before something interesting or new appear in front of him.

      James then put his clothes and protect suit, then he walk toward the place where he must be , he eat his breakfast as he hear a tape that her assistant Aurora do in the night and also read a map to find the place where the reunion point was.

        <Zing>Ship time was slow time. <Zing>Even when the brass insisted upon constant training and drills, being aboard ship meant that there was only routine. Boring, thankfully boring routine. <Zing>The admiral said that we were going to strike back at these "Harbingers." Whatever. When the time came Niles was going to be ready.

        <Zing>His armor was already cleaned and repaired, as with his rifle. <Zing>Everything was in tip-top shape, and Niles was bored. No training was scheduled, and there were no grunts to whip into shape at the moment. <Zing>So, Niles was doing what he always did when he was bored. His combat knife and machete were already sharp enough, not only to shave with, but to split those whiskers into thirds. Lengthwise. Today, he was going to see if he could get his knife sharp enough to go for quarters.<Zing>

        When General Quarters sounded, Niles sighed... I guess I won't be beating any records today. Time to get dressed for a party that may never happen. Niles suited up for combat. I don't know why the marines have to get dressed up for ship to ship combat... we never board anymore. In fact, I'm likely to be dead before I even know the ship was hit. Ahhhh well. Time to set a good example for the grunts.

        And so, reluctantly, slowly, Sgt. Niles armored up, loaded up all his gear, and still made it to his combat station before anyone else.

        Let's see what all the excitement is about this time.

          Midway through his daily workout routine Lapelle sighs as he hears the call to arms. Guess my deltoids will just have to wait... he thinks to himself as he gets suited up into his combat gear, grabbing his modified XM8 and holstering his trusty .45 cal sidearm he makes his way to the rendezvous point in double time.

            Kenzo was waiting for it... It may have been a few days scince leaving Vega IV, But Kenzo knew the Harbingers would be there waiting for us when we got to our location...

            Wherever it is this oversized hunka' scrapmetal was taking us...

            So it came to no surprise when the warning klaxxons rang.

            In an almost tired repetition, and without even turning his head to look, Kenzo retrieves the locked battle armaments from a small locker next to his bunk, then retreives his pistol from under the pillow... A habit he picked up on Vega IV, after a late night break in attempt...

            Sitting up to suit-up he calls out "Ariok.. Send a mem to Bravo Team: 'Meet Captain Bravo in Hanger' And could you make that a high priority schedule ping? And uh... Thanks... I guess..."


            Sliding the first magazine into the G36K and stuffing the two emergency Mags into the small pack, Captain Aramada turned off the lights to his quarters as he himself left for the hanger... Rifle on his shoulder...

              Terra was showering in her quarters when she heard the kalxons sound, alerting the ship's crew and the announcement for all available units to make their way to the general quarters was made. FUCK! It never fails, you're in te middle of a shower and you're under an attack. she thought as she stepped out of the shower, grabbe her towel, dried off quickly and threw on her uniform. She would work on straightening it out on the way to general quarters. As she reached her bed and room, she grabbed her rifle, mount, and ammunition and proceeded to make her way to the quarters with the rest of her company.

              Perfection is humanly impossible. The more you reach for it the farther away it grows. Failure is inherited to our species as a whole. But punishing ourselves and beating ourselves up for it helps nothing. The best any decent person can do is try, and try, and try again. And try to get better little by little day by day.

                Arioks wizzened, bent form glared back up at Stukov as the Admiral questioned him, and his reply was spoken slowly and methodically, in a cold, almost sibilant voice; "I calculate 3 minutes 17 seconds until the main batteries are operational. The shields will only last a maximum of 1 minutes and 13 seconds of concentrated bombardment from the Harbinger vessels. I would suggest that the rest of the fleet initiate defensive maneuvers and buy us time to bring the main guns online."

                  In the Hanger bay, where Kenzo was waiting, a woman in a flight suit and a helmet over her head walked up to him. "You that Kenzo Armada guy I've been hearing so much about? Well, looks like I'm carrying you and your squad into the shit today." the pilot states with a smile on her face, as the sound of engines warming up in G Hanger could be heard. Multiple Pegasus Transports, massive cargo ships designed for carrying troops, ammo, and vehicles across the battlefield, were preparing for the inevitable attack on the planet. Though, to Kenzo, they appeared like bloated black sacks strung underneath a set of engines and a cockpit. They weren't pretty, but they got the job done.

                  And of course, to all the squad members not in the hanger already, their HUD units received a ping telling them to go to the hanger ASAP.

                  Oh the bridge, Harris scoffed and raised his hands over his head slightly "Fine. Deploy the fleet. But once Ariok gets those big guns online, we pull them back." he states, then sits down at his chair in the section for ground-side command, waiting for the space battle to begin as a distraction for the landing operation. Stukov, knowing how much the space battle mattered, sat down at the central command chair of the ship, and issued the order to deploy the fleet. Within moments, openings on the large flight deck of the ship began to open, and the fleet began to exit, save for their flagship, the Zaftra, which exited after the fleet, moving into position behind them. The 4 battleships arranged into a square, with the 8 destroyers and 3 cruisers arranging within the square, the Zaftra positioned dead-center, so that all of their fire was one concentrated bombardment.

                  The Harbingers didn't fail to notice this, and began to shit position, the edges of their blackish purple hulls coursing with energy as they begin to fire their strange purple plasma bolts across space at the fleet. The fleet returned in kind with railgun fire and missiles, all of the ships concentrating on a single target at once to overwhelm their shields. Th fight for space had begun, and the signal went out to the ground forces to commence the attack.

                    "It's Aramada..." Kenzo corrected the Pilot, on ship was no reason for aliases... Especially when it came from so many mispronunciations of his name...

                    "And good, things have been too quiet around here, been having a hard time getting to sleep..." Kenzo finishes this with a quick salute, a learned mannerisim that seems to help keep the pilot from doing any... Unnessissary Aerobatics... Last thing he needs as he hits groundside is an Airsick squad...

                    Looking up at the ungracefull looking transport, Aramada sets the blue Nav marker onto the Personel Seating area... And takes his own seat... Strapping the G36K into a Sidemount Then waits for his multitude of Amber Nav's to finally reach the Hanger...

                      Linda arrived at a jog, snapping Kenzo a quick salute with an equally quick "Sir!" As she hopped on board and strapped herself in. "Any word where we're landing, sir?" She'd ask afterwards, leaning her head back and closing her eyes. She's always hated being in space, but re-entry was always worse.

                        Arriving in the hanger Aelin snaps a quick salute to the captain and prepares to board the transport with the rest of the squad.

                          Sgt. Niles nods at various members as they arrive in the hanger bay, saluting the Captain as he arrives and talks to the pilot. Then he loads himself into the deathtrap.

                          "We're going to where the Harbingers are, Linda. Assuming of course that the Navy can break the blockade. If the Admiral does his job, we'll get a chance to do ours."

                            "You know what I mean Sarge," Linda replies while rolling her eyes. "We're definitely going planetside, but it's a large planet. One of the major centers, maybe?"

                              The Dr Cheese take his time of reach the transportator, then after a brief time he reach... and get inside still hearing the laws and things of the army, at least he end to eat his breakfast. Then he past without notice anyone and look for his seat and then he put his attention in the parts of the ship.
