Ur Lord Tedric Posted November 20, 2004 Report Share Posted November 20, 2004 The commander of the Apache class corvette studied the sensor readouts carefully. The eddies from the strangers transit through the warp point at which they had been stationed for the past few cycles had now dissipated and the ship was revealed…. The Apostle II class fleet scout out-massed the Apache by nearly double, but hopefully the Jump Survey Sensor that the ship probably mounted consumed a lot of that tonnage. The sigils of the Grayson Protectorate - #1626 were revealed. This meeting had been forewarned and the commander awaited the outcome. Allies in the Quincunx Star Region had been plagued by this rogue empire, that acted more like the Masadans of legend and not the glorious ‘honor’ attached to the Grayson sagas, and the commander made sure his defences were ready and that the weapon stations were hot in the expectation that the newly arrived fleet would attack. Those other ships had been unarmed, but still attacked without warning or provocation. This time, the commander vowed that the fight would at least be contested. But they lay there quiescent and non-moving. The commander eventually relaxed somewhat and turned to the communications station. He ordered the Omega Drone secured, as it seemed that it would not be needed this day. Instead he dictated a message to be sent back to the other ships of the 4th Survey Flotilla. After that, he waited to see whether this time, against all the odds, that the Grayson ship would respond……… Chief Scribe to Ur-Lord Tedric Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
