Underdeep Rises!

Recommended Posts

Appalled citizens all over the Empire mourn the loss of one of the oldest of the Galactic Explorer fleets that was pushing the outwards known boundaries of the Empire. An hitherto unknown alien race struck first without any warning or early border marker fleets and the Emperor has decided to quickly send an Armed Recovery Strike Force to search for survivors of this heinous deed. Though the Empire has been at peace of late, at least the Imperial Industrial Corporate Sector seems happy for this event...

The "Go Away" base station appears to be what we call a kitchen-sink design. Mostly built of leftover parts from EXPL orders.

So exactly when have your explorers found 5 leftover Type D Disentigrators laying around? Oh sure, they tossed some random junk into the mix like 1 MK III Long Lance Torpedo. But 99.9% of the station was built to hit anyone coming near with a 26 Million point love tap.

 

Plus the Seasoned nature of the station makes you wonder what they've been doing to build up the crew. Probably target practice with drones and dummies that look suspiciously like Locklyn's ships.

Yes, this is an unprovoked act of War. Any sensible Empire knows to mark the inner 15 systems of their Empire with sensor marker fleets at every warp point and gas giant as to ensure that alien races know that they are encroaching on another Empires territory and are aware that they may be blasted into smithereens shortly.

 

Oh well, our ARSF Fleet will take care of the Underdeep survivors as well...

Well, based on the design of the ship, the system the battle took place in couldn't have been a nexus. There are no engines or fuel tankage or jump drives on the base. There must be at least one orbit that they could put down a slip, shipyards, and power. Once the base was built it would have to be towed into place at the warp point.

 

The warp point must have some importance attached to it to merit that kind of effort to guard it. It is more then adequate to take out small defenseless explore ships. Not sure if Lars came there through a one-way or not.

 

Lars could take the high road here and open diplomatic channels instead of opening fire. Not every empire out there has empire border markers. Yes, losing an explore ship sucks. I've had it happen to me for various reasons. It's not the end of the world, especially with the production juggernaut the Gremloids have at their disposal. They have around 6 or more captured HWs?

 

If Lars chooses to open fire instead of opening talks then I will be forced to put him on the W.H.A.P.O roster as a member in good standing.

The Emperor today announced the loss of the Imperial Fuelling Ship Sweet Saviour as it was viciously attacked by an Underdeep Battleship in the Erine system, a known GGT system a far from the Albright system where the earlier incident happened. Fortunately its sister ship was of the newer models and quite capable of handling the Underdeep attacker but a stray shot from the enemy crippled the Sweet Saviour and she was lost with all hands. Despite the recent bouts of diplomatic attempts to quell a growing conflict this atrocious attack on fuelling ships made the Emperor appear at the Octagon and to the assembled general staff declare that a state of war now exists between the Underdeep and the Genesian Gremloid Technocracy.

I thought you had border ships stationed at all locations 15 out from your HW? You said Underdeep was at fault for NOT having done this and letting you get all the way to the Underdeep HW. SO obviously this is a dirty sneak attack by you on the poor innocent Underdeep ship that had been sitting in the system since 2008.

Fleet Tanker my rear appendage. 1 Million tankage and almost 1/2 that amount in weapons and a large amount of shields?!. That was a guided missle ship disguised as a fleet tanker. Oh that was clever. How many times did he have to sail it back and forth in front of the battleship real slow, giving the old "I'm just an innocent tanker carrying fuel" routine, until the old girl finally moved? Imagine the battleships commander when the the covers blew off all the missles silos and SURPRISE his ship was blasted from a distance. Oh the horror of it all....

Hmmm....the program said it was a tanker . Besides , a tanker is a valuable piece of equipment , so it is only logical that it be armed in some manner.....protect against pirates . No self respecting tanker captain wants to be taken prisoner and held hostage for some kind of ransom .

Appalled citizens all over the Empire mourn the loss of one of the oldest of the Galactic Explorer fleets that was pushing the outwards known boundaries of the Empire. An hitherto unknown alien race struck first without any warning or early border marker fleets and the Emperor has decided to quickly send an Armed Recovery Strike Force to search for survivors of this heinous deed.

The POINT is this is the reason he SAID the war was started, and NOW, a ship is on his side of a boarder? HOW? Is he not guilty of his own complaint? No warning marker fleets!

 

Typical, White Hat, ANY made up reason for a fight, when they want to act like a pirate.

 

Attacking out of boredom, nice guy. Hope the rest of the non allies in his area, or maybe allies he does not agree with are taking notice.

 

All the PA kept the Bob border with Lars agreement even though we knew where a HW was of his and the Bob border was only between Lars and Bob, this was back before Hellenic league, before Lars had his massive production, and even as his ships were busy with Hellenic league we stayed away. So we see this as what it is an attack without justification, PIRACY.

About the only thing you didn't accuse Lock of was secretly transporting weapons hidden within the fuel tanks and supplying them to religious terrorists on your colony worlds. If you're going to have righteous indignation on your side, you might as well pull out all the stops. <_<

Gary, I thought you had left the boards because we did not take you seriously. Welcome back.

 

So what you are saying is Bob (ROE of X) is a Pirate because he attacked Lars (ROE of Q) without justification after crossing a border well known to all parties involved. I guess it is typical of the PA to attack without justification but I don't understand why you are calling a Bob a White Hat.

 

And what does it mean to say the ASRF fleet will take care of the Underdeep survivors? That sounds kind of chilling. I am glad I am not an Underdeep survivor.
