Battle of Orbis Terrarum Part 5This is Agent 22 of the NGM Agency.
This will be my final report.
February 25th, 2012, I was aboard the Solar Sailing Ship Discovery. The crew consisted of my superiors, Travis Awesome, Gareth Amazing, and Charlie Glory, Aelita Awesome, sister of Travis, and five passengers. They were Eclipse Amakura, Amy, Akura, Lotus and my lover, Eclissi.
We were at 4,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean enroute to Hawaii.
At approximately 14:00 hours we were engaged by a cloaked ship via air to air missiles and heavy gunfire.
I returned fire immediately, to no avail. The enemy ship had powerful shields.
Aelita was the first casualty. She was hit and thrown off the bow.
Aelita is presumed dead at 16:00 hours.
Eclipse is lost during the battle, I lost sight of her shortly before the ship attacked us.
Eclipse is presumed dead at 16:00 hours.
Amy, Akura, Eclissi and Lotus escape by way of mirror teleportation provided by Lotus.
The stern of the ship was hit by a missile, destroying the crews rooms and helm
Battle of Orbis Terrarum Part 4The war was vast, we took many casualties.
We could hardly put a dent in their numbers. We hadn't expected them to be to great in size.
After two weeks of nonstop fighting, a victor was decided.
I gave the order to retreat.
We fled, like cowards we had been reduced to.
I would rather lose than watch my men die.
In the end, Charlie's fleet was halve and Gareth's shrunk to 253 men.
All of my men made it out alive, I am proud of their skill.
I gathered my comrades in council, we knew our enemies intention.
We decided that the only way to survive is to return to society and hide as another brick in the wall.
The take over was swift. In only a month had our enemies taken over.
Those who stood against them were killed without hesitation.
This new world order is called the Alliance.
People have no freedom anymore.
They are told what they can watch, what they can eat, and even where they can go.
It's not all bad.
World trade is at an all time high, gas and other resources are now far cheaper t
Battle of Orbis Terrarum Part 3The battle in the skies high above earth were intense.
Ships exploding left and right, gunfire blazing up and down, you couldn't travel a mile in any direction without getting hit by something.
Considering this was in orbit above earth, a mile is a tiny amount of distance.
Normally, we are able to cloak the battle field from the citizens of earth, but the enemy we faced had jammed our cloaking machines.
So there we were, a fire storm of space ships in the night sky, for all to see.
At first the political leaders told their subjects that it was just a violent meteor shower. The battle raged for several days, and the subject began to panic.
After a week, the leaders of the world were forced to tell their citizens the truth.
My organization told them to explain everything to the people of earth. It mattered not to keep ourselves a secret any longer.
The world went into an uproar.
The good people of the Earth stayed in their homes and went on with their lives as best as they could.
Battle of Orbis Terrarum Part 2Our ship fell from the sky, landing in the ocean below.
We swam into the dark abyss that was the salty Pacific. A submarine was waiting for us in the depth of the water. Once aboard and through the airlock, I took command of the submarine.
We docked in nearby Hilo Bay, on the East coast of Hawaii's main island.
There my friends left for their respective duties, there was a war brewing.
After supplying the submarine, we headed to sea once again. Bound for the Marinas Trench, it would serve as a spot to hide from any enemy.
News of warships in orbit reached us half way into our trek.
The division one friend runs is the Intergalactic Trade Federation, and in their regime is the Solidarity Fleet. The Solidarity Fleet consists of 100 warships and 100 fighters, the are the largest peace keeping fleet second to the Space Forces, a standalone organization that are the police of space.
We'll call that friend by the name of Charlie.
Five miles out from the Marinas Trench, I received the message
Battle of Orbis Terrarum Part 1I've had my share of battles before. Some of them were big, some were small.
Then there was the battle that changed everything. We hardly saw it coming.
The organization I led was large and powerful. It was divided up into three parts, a peace keeping division, a trading division, and a division that dug it's nose in places many people stay away from.
I watched over the peace keepers, while two of my trusted friends watched over the other two.
We were on vacation when it happened. My two friends and and I, and the company of a body guard and five, including my sister. We sailed the skies with vessel fit for a king. She had the basic equipment, nothing to fight a war with.
They attacked us hard and fast.
Our four guests were able to escape without injury.
My sister was the first to get hit. She was thrown off the ship by heavy gunfire.
My body guard made a good stand with the small gun he had, but he too was taken down by gunfire.
I tried to shoot back, but their gunfire was too heavy.
