    The twin Confederate Core Worlds in the Tyrador system watch in horror as the remains of Kingston's fleet sink into the atmospheres of both worlds. Four of our battlecruisers maintain a holding pattern around the one of Kingston's that we managed to board before Gorn could destroy it. Gorn requests permission to continue scouring the planets of civilian life.


    The fifth of our battlecruisers has just arrived at the now-dessicated homeworld of the Dark Templar, Shakuras, with a small escort of wraiths. It is in plain view of Kingston's last battlecruiser in the system, but has received no hails of any kind.


    On the agricultural world where our four carriers are idling, VoidGate's forces appear to be bringing minerals up from the holes left by the massive drills, and taking back industrial machine parts. Our damaged carrier is at last repaired, and we can leave the system at any time.

    Let Gorn have his fun AFTER we infest anyone of any importance on the surface.

    Get reinforcements to Shakuras, terran units only. Recommend we hail the battlecruiser and keep our weapons ready.

Warbrate isn't sure that battle would go entirely in our favor, though it would certainly cripple Tarsonis. It suggests refraining from attacking Core Worlds until we've recovered a bit more.

    Consult our Econobrates and Productionbrates on our current military production and colonization efforts.

    Also, start scouring the Battlecruiser's data for information on other valuable targets to strike. We might not be able to take down Tarsonis, but we should not let them have the chance to rebuild unmolested. We should strike at other economical centers to weaken their ability to rebuild.

It may be wise to be prepared to combat aliens that will be strongly predisposed to be hostile toward anything Terran-like and who have crazy reality-warping technology.

    But they're similar ENOUGH. The protoss, who are not known for their pragmatic restraint (read: CONCLAVE), may interpret VoidGate as a new Terran superweapon designed to combat the Protoss. Even if they don't, the possibility of renewed Terran aggression and strongly humanoid/Terran combat robots that act akin to a mechanical form of the Zerg is probably good enough for them to go all aeon-of-strife on them.

    We could also have Kerri tip the Protoss off about VoidGate just to show the ungrateful little bastard that we know what we're taking about. That that VoidGate is ungrateful or a bastard, just close minded and annoyingly focused to the point of being oblivious to things around it.

    Talk it over with the Battlecruiser. Lightly and subtly hint that we might not exactly be operating strictly under Confederate regulations.

    It's a fledgling rampant AI. We just need to guide it along until it outgrows its Skynet-ish origins into something more Durandalesque.

    Already thought of something, how feasible would it be to develop an ECM missile spam Valkyrie? ECM missiles could be something as simple as canisters loaded with chaff or some kind of charged particles, so long as the missile payload disrupts comms, sensors, and in the case of the Protoss, shields. That or follow captcha's advice and turn it into a mobile nlydc plant, whatever that is.

    Sicing Kerri on VoidGate was more just something I decided to throw out there since it popped into my head, but yes I am changing my vote so that things get moving..

    We shouldn't potentially wipe out VoidGate with an angry Protoss attack when it could potentially wreck the Terrans' shit up; Kingston's fleet is destroyed, but he's not beaten yet. Also, The UED fleet may be coming in soon, we'll need all the anti-Terran allies we need.

    "Shalmaneser, this is the Hyperion. We've detected odd activity on your ship. Do you require assistance?"

    There is a long pause.

    "Hyperion, this is Shalmaneser. We do not require assistance at this time. We've got orders to move to Moria unless you've got some pressing need for us here."
    >> Techbrate 02/23/11(Wed)23:19 No.14019260

    Anyone else think we should just destroy the battlecruiser?

    Also, get a few observer dropships to Moria.
    >> Anonymous 02/23/11(Wed)23:20 No.14019267
    No pressing need, let them move on. Have cloaked wraiths/zerg observers follow. I want to see what they do in Moria, if they even actually go there.
    >> TUCAMP 02/23/11(Wed)23:20 No.14019268
    Moria. Interesting. We need to follow this, especially if it actually does go to Moria. Dyles might have taken control of the KMC.

    now just why would a bc taken over by a lovecraftian horror want to go to moria

    i mean, somthing obviously has happened on the ship, and whoever is talking is most definitly not human

    i dont think we should let it go

    but send scouts there
    >> Anonymous 02/23/11(Wed)23:33 No.14019478
    They might be just trying to escape without being caught. That's why we should follow them, see where they go.

    Wasn't there some small system that went silent before we started the whole Kingston vs. Protoss debacle, back when we were hacked into the Terran news net? We never got around to sending a scout there, did we?
    >> TUCAMP 02/23/11(Wed)23:37 No.14019533
    Gour I think. We should check that out now that you mention it. Last week really screwed with things, stupid solar flares.

    (Neat. Everybody's all agreeable tonight)

    We immediately order our dropship observer to the Moria system. It finds the world buzzing with news about Tyrador, the unexplained military order to destroy any craft traceable to Goryu, and the reports of nuclear holocaust on seven Fringe Worlds. Wraith squadrons patrol the skies in moderate numbers, but there are no visible battlecruisers.

    "Shalmaneser, we don't have any pressing need. Move along."

    The ship pulls away, and we detect its engines spooling up. It jumps away and, after the expected time, arrives at Moria. The comm traffic can best be described as ecstatic. The ship is a beacon of hope for the people. Within moments, we intercept a message from the Shalmaneser to the remainder of the Combine government (which appears to have been left in charge as the regional extension of Kingston's authority), inviting them aboard for a briefing.

    Internbrate claims to have a bad feeling about this.

    (Alright, I know we didn't get a whole lot done this session, but I think that's a decent stopping point. I have been authorized to explain using the words "I've got a hot vagina waiting for me."You understand. I'll see you next week. Pic related: BLAST OFF!)

    Even as you were arguing with VG about its motives, a dropship observer could have been sent to the Goryu system to see what's going on.
    Labbrate could have been picking over the Confederate military research labs on Tyrador even as Warbrate engaged in mop-up operations.

    Instead of getting things done, all I saw going on was arguing with an AI about its feelings concerning its father.

    Didn't mess up too bad? We allowed an unknown contagion (possibly Dyles from the Halloween Special) to arrive at one of the most populous Terran planets in the entire Koprulu Sector, and where he can infect the political leaders all the way down, and we have no assets in position to stop it, and you think we didn't mess up too badly?
    I shudder to think of what you would consider a clusterfuck if this wasn't "didn't mess up too bad".
