An entire Burninite craftworld appears behind the Hildenburen ship. The size of a moon (since it was, after all, basically hollowed out of a moon), the craftworld overshadows the small ship. It doesn't engage, but the Hildenburen ship does immediately transmit --

"This is a civilian vessel, and any form of aggression against it will not be tolerated --"

"Hildenburen diplomatic vessel," Jenova's voice transmits, "this is Consul Jenova Incinerator of Burnination. Your charge is severe and not to be made lightly. If you wish to seek redress of grievances, we will bring together a council of the powers of Korel. We do not recognize your sovereign right to intervene in this galaxy without our joint permission. We cannot condone genocide, nor can we condone your military presence here."

There's a text transmission to Lal, and it goes to Paladin Komtur as well as the government of the OrdenReich. "We feel that the best way to deal with this situation is to stall Hildenburen action with negotiations while we discern their strengths and weaknesses. We also believe that it is best to present a united front. Respond to this if there is disagreement. ~Consul Incinerator"

There is a pause from the Hildenburen vessel. "Your position is tenable to us, Consul Incinerator. If you truly speak here, we would submit to your inquiry. However, it must be conditional upon the non-presence of any Gar''zhog influence, as well. We shall return here in exactly 36 hours time. This will be resolved either by the pen or by the sword."

The Hildenburen vessel vanishes.

*Paladin Komtur Jager was thinking carefully on what to say to the Burninites and then finally spoke*

Jager: What is there to discuss? Every one of us has experimented in chemical and bio warfare at some point. We can all say that we are one big happy family and completely incorruptible when it comes to things like this and we all know thats just political BS. As far as I'm concerned the Veridians have done nothing to the Ordenreich while the Hildenburen destroyed half our homeworld! Not to mention the damages caused to infrastructure and civilian lives across our entire home system! We are still determining how many people died in the first wave! It seems these Hildenburen have nothing but contempt for what we have achieved and would rather see us extinct or enslaved. I say the moment that diplomatic vessel comes back we board and seize it and dissect it so we can find out how the Hildenburen wage war

Jenova is mildly distressed by the message from the paladin, but says nothing of it. Again in text communication, "we intend to use the proceedings to buy time to exploit weaknesses, if anything."

*The interim*

A massive Hildenburen vessel appears near Veridia Prime. It's the size of like, two craftworlds by mass. It can't be scanned by conventional scanners; it has an energy shield that is emitting so much energy that attempting to scan it is futile. Essentially the signature from the energy shield washes out any other signals. It's almost like they're driving around a very small star. Almost. Very.

Anyway, although no one remembers inviting them, a Gar''zhog vessel appears as well, off to the side.

"In accordance with International Regulations T1667, this is a Gar''zhog observer pod. We will submit to a search," it broadcasts in English. Pretty damn good English, for a Gar''zhog.

"Request denied," the Hildenburen ... thing replies. "Vacate the region."

The Spotlight appears. "That isn't necessary," Thorgood's voice. "We have nothing to hide."

"The people of this planet have much to hide," the Hildenburen broadcast.

"Enough," Thorgood responds. "If you have come prepared to negotiate, why do you hide behind a barrier of energy?"

"This is not a negotiation. It is a statement of terms."

"If that's the way it's going to go, I doubt the Veridians will accept."

*Paladin Komtur Jager had about enough of the Hildenburen at this point and chimed in*

Jager: Attention giant, glorified Hildenburen lightbulb, if I recall correctly you are in our galaxy therefore you must adhere to our rules. You wiped out half a garden world without cause here so in are hardly in a position of moral authority here. Unless you're here to negotiate like a civilized sentient being then please kindly take your ego stroking nonsense elsewhere. Jager out.

A single Veridian warship, Flavian's own flagship moved forward towards the Hildenburen's big ole ship of doom. Shields raised and weapon at the ready, it approached the ship without fear...or in complete stupidity...who knows right?

"Hildenburen ship" Flavian transmits again. "You have violated Veridian space for the last time. We refuse to submit to the standards of galactic law that we ourselves were not privy to constructing, reviewing, and/or signing."

The Veridian ships stops shy of breathing down the very neck, metaphorically speaking, of the Hildenburen.

"However, contrary to your own statements, Veridians are indeed a civilized race. Though we do not recognize the legitimacy of these galactic documents, we shall agree to hear formal charges brought against us. We can only assume that there must be a necessity of evidence to make such accusations against us. If so, we must also assume that there is an appeals process and if so, we wish to submit such an appeal but can only do so once we know the charges for which we are being accused. "

"Should" Flavian said concluding, "you refuse us, then I have no choice but to unleash the rest of our arsenal against you, your people, and even your homeworld if we must. We shall not be terrorized or otherwise threaten."

A bluff, yes, but the Hildenburen didn't see the bioweapon coming either so for them...could they really afford to believe the Veridians didn't have anything else up their sleeves?

(OOC: BTW, I cracked up when I read the bit about being a glorified lightbulb. +1 :p)

The Gar''zhog observer pod hadn't left, since Thorgood's intervention on its behalf had been enough that it was allowed to stay. It doesn't react when Thorgood speaks, though. But when the Ordenreich ship transmits its message, and then the ship from the Veridians transmits, it makes its delight felt.

"These people are ever your superiors!" the Gar''zhog transmit.

"You are in violation of the observer agreement," a frustrated sounding Hildenburen transmission. "You may not transmit messages of any kind while under the prot -"

The Gar''zhog overrides them. "You have not the strength to enforce the treaty."

There is a momentary silence. "Will you leave them be, or will spite be your last great act, Great Queen Verona?" It was from the Gar''zhog pod.

There is a woman's voice on the Hildenburen end. "We will not end."

The energy of the Hildenburen thingamawhatsit grows brighter, almost blinding sensors. Rather, the Spotlight feels pretty blind. But it fails to knock out comms, because the Gar''zhog transmit. "The Hildenburen are massing to attack -- they have been provoked and are coming in full retinue. Defend yourselves!"

"Well," Admiral Svensgaard mused on a link to the other high level leaders of the PDF, "we certainly didn't have the entire fleet on highest readiness for nothing. Commander, I believe the presence of the UNS Odysseus and every fleet save for Admiral Watanabe's home defense fleet will be necessary."

Within a brief moment, the Centauri warships arrive, releasing a massive cloud of fighters and fighter-bombers, preparing to strike against the Hildenburen ships.

Jager: This is Paladin Komtur Jager. Fighters are being deployed and FOABs are in the tubes and are ready to be fired. Gathering targeting solutions and projecting flight path and detonation radius of the FOABs. All ships stand clear.

Jager (to firing officer): Show these barbarians what the Ordenreich thinks about Hildenburen authority.

Officer: Aye sir. El Durado and Times of War FOAB flight paths confirmed. Four FOABs per ship confirmed. Fire out.

*With that word the two ultra-dreadnoughts both fired four FOABs apiece with all appointed a specific point on the ship. The Ordenreich wanted to spread the fire out over a large radius to hopefully overwhelm any shields or exploit any weakpoint on the Hildenburen vessel. The FOABs went into slipspace about 100 feet after they exited the missile tubes and reappeared just outside the shield of the Hildenburen vessel*

Flavian stepped back and took his seat on the bridge of his flagship. Turning to his communication's officer, he gave the word: "Tell the fleet, weapons free....I want that ships destroyed!" His officers sprang to life, just as they were train, and so did the rest of the ships. Fighters were quickly scrambled and ships began moving into position. Flavian's own flagship took the lead, guns at the ready, and its torpedo/missions loaded.

"FIRE" Flavian said with great conviction.

The Veridian ships open fire on the Hildenburen ship, slavo after salvo, came from their cannons. In quick succession several torpedos were fired. Hopeless, perhaps....but at least they tried...right?

(OOC: Don't have the proper know how to direct them THAT accurately. The FOAB is still relatively new tech. Maybe down the road I will develop the tech to allow FOABs to come out of slipspace inside a ship's shields or even inside a ship itself)

(OOC: Grammar Nazi mode says it's "salvo," Veridia :p. You were tired when you wrote that!)

Well, looks like the Hildenburen had a reason for being so bright. The energy given off by that shield is still messing with sensors when the allied fleets attack. The Spotlight retreats, as planned, to pretend Burnination won't commit to a struggle, just when the Veridians strike.

Their attack has no visible effect.

The FOABs, on the other hand, have a pretty visible effect.

The first one visibly explodes outside the shield, but the second, probably entirely by mistake, materializes inside the shield. Remember, sensors are wacked out, so some OrdenReich tech aimed close to be sure, and scored a hit better than his superiors were asking for.

The Hildenburen vessel pops like a balloon, energy shield vanishing, freeing up sensors, which begin picking up a materializing Hildenburen fleet a few clicks from the planet now that they're not obscured by the "glorified lightbulb."

OOC: *Waves his hand in front of Burn's face* There is no problem Razz

IC:

"Ah ha" said Flavian with vigor "Now the enemy shows itself. Tell all ships to charge at once, today is a day for victory."

With enemy ships on sensors, the Veridian fleets move out to met the enemy head on. They were quite impressed by the FOABs potential. It reminded them of their own Naquadria bombs, though the FOAB seemed more powerful from what data they gathered once it detonated. More analysis would have to be made to be sure.

Weapons were once again set free and fighters were quickly scrambled to weaver in and out of the Hildenburen formation, making them more difficult to hit less the Hildenburn wished to miss and hit one of their own.

Jager (on radio): That was for Livenstein you sons of bitches! All carriers deploying fighters, ultra-dreadnoughts switching to conventional weapons and providing large range fire support. Fighters begin blood and iron tactics. Fur den auftrag!

*the Ordenreich's new carrier class ships spewed swarms of fighters out. They began the tactic the Ordenreich designed for hildenburen ships originally developed in first contact. Due to the hildenburen weakness of fighters being able to slip into their shields the Ordenreich uses conventional manned fighters to screen an unmanned fighter that was packed with smaller grade nuclear weapons. The manned fighters would escort the unmanned one to a hildenburen ship in which they would break off and the unmanned fighter would enter the hildenburen ship's shield and detonate its nukes. The Ordenreich's plan was for the Nike to detonate inside the shield amplifying the yield by being forced into a smaller area aka the hildenburen shield*

The Centauri fighters now begin to swarm into the area and fly into the Hildenburen shields, repeating past tactics. A few fighter-bombers are given the Planet Busters held aboard the capital ships and some brave pilots volunteer to fly the bombs in and attempt to damage them much in the same way as they had seen from the Ordenreich FOAB. In the meantime, the rest of the fleet remains mobile and lays down covering fire of tachyons, plasma, and missiles to occupy the Hildenburen fleet.

Everything moving towards the Hildenburen fleet pretty quickly notices a problem.

Consider the bumblebee. Consider specifically, the mass of a bumblebee. Then compare that to the vastness of open space, and the frequency of space junk smaller and larger than that in proximity to a planet.

Once you're done with all that considering, I think you have an idea of the snare the Hildenburen laid in space there. Oh, I forgot to mention that they all explode. So yeah, basically, swarms of tiny, powerful explosives that are nigh impossible to avoid/see what with being the size of bumblebees.

The Hildenburen launch a strike of their own, firing their lasers at alliance ships from afar. Their beams mysteriously fail to be blocked by or strike any of their own bumblebombs.

Seriously, how did they lie so many out there so quickly? There wasn't even a large explosion or energy signature to give away that they were laying the trap at all! So covert! Awe!

In any case, most attempts to flash or use FTL forms that allow ships to flash to an alternate space (that would presumably be free of bumblebombs) seem to fail.

The Burninites show up on the opposite side of the Hildenburen, hoping to avoid the same snare as the other fleets...

And are quickly disappointed by the presence of bumblebombs Smile

(To be continued after y'all have a chance to react)

*Paladin Komtur Jager watched as the Ordenreich fighters exploded, luckily he did not order the Ordenreich fleet forward only its fighters so his only ship casualties came from long range weapon fire. He quickly ordered his fighters to fall back and regroup*

Jager: Crewmen, analysis.

Officer: Sir we detect micro space debris floating in the space around the Hildenburen fleet based off its presence and how our fighters were killed we assume this micro space debris are enemy mines

Jager: A counter to our fighter tactics...

Officer: Yes sir

*Jager thought for a moment then gave his orders*

Jager: New plan. Our ultra-dreadnoughts will assume the role of minesweeper. Order FOABs fired at specific points to carve a path through the minefield. We will utilize our slipspace torpedos to drop our FOABs right where they need to go to blow a corridor through the minefield. Our fighters are to follow the corridor we carve and engage in standard blood and iron tactics. Have our frigates begin counter artillery measures. Have them deploy their payloads of diversionary satellites to confuse their sensors and minimize our profile. Send a mission report to command using the Quantum Entanglement Communicators. The Hildenburen may think they blocked our chatter but I would like to see them stop communications that don't even use comm arrays

Officer: Aye, aye sir!

Commander Aaron was rather annoyed when he received the report that the attempted fighter swarm tactics were prevented by the cloud of micro-explosives, but he had to admit that it was unlikely that the same tactics would work over and over again. As such, he reviews their tactics, and considers a new plan. "At this point, it seems that tactical repositioning is necessary. Their technology appears to be blocking technologies that allow dimensional travel, but that should have no bearing on us, considering that all we do is warp space around us. Reposition onto both flanks."

With that, much of the Centauri fleet quickly warps around, trying to travel around the sides of the enemy fleet and then draw their fire in those directions.

The Veridian fleets that had pushed forward, now found themselves in a full reverse maneuver. Causalities of their head-strong forward attack were high. Several ships had become highly damages, a few were even lost completely. Flavian's own flagship had been dealt extensive damage but was still afloat...though isn't everything in space?

After backing outward from the bumblebombs, Flavian ordered a new tactic from his engineers. This was a difficult order as his own engineers were still working to bring the flagship back to fighting shape. In the meantime the Veridians watched as the other fleets made their own tactical changes and begun their own renewed assaults. Frustrated, Flavian barked and barked until at last a new tactic was proposed.

"A graviton beam could be used to push these mines away from out ships, allowing us to create a corridor to the Hildenburen fleet" the engineers explained.

"Make the preparations at once then" said Flavian. To accomplish the task, the Veridians would have to bring another fleet form the planet, allowing the damaged ships to return back towards the planet. The ships would have to calibrate their deflector arrays to emit a single graviton beam. The fleet would then have to coordinate these beams to create a sufficient enough corridor for the ships to use. Flavian's own flagship is the only damage vessel to remain in the forward formation for the Veridians.

*Paladin Komtur Jager watched in interest as the other fleets made changes. He was a little worried about the Veridians as they ran straight into the minefield and took heavy losses. Right now they looked like they were a little stunned from the failed assault and who could blame them? He redirected his attention back to his participation in the battle when a message came via the QEC with a response to his mission report. He read the report and a small feeling of relief flooded over him and he informed the other allied fleets via morse code using lights attached to some of his ships to relay the message because he was unsure whether the Hildenburen fleet would block his radio transmissions*

Jager (morse code message): O.S.S.C. has declared our situation Code: Teutoburg. The Ordenreich has ordered half of the entire Ordenreich fleet here to assist against the enemy fleet. Ultra-Dreadnoughts Atlas, War Hammer, Burning Crusade, Hades, and Ragnarok are also being deployed to this system. ETA is 20-30 minutes.

(OOC: Was busy today, but Sacae, you probably only lost a few fighters, not all of them. After the first one randomly exploded, wouldn't most of them not follow? Same deal with VP. I obviously made the aliens overpowered since they're fighting like...all of Korel, but you needn't RP out more losses than you're comfortable with!)

All of the strategies employed by the allied fleets work in avoiding the bombs. Thing is, everyone assumed that the Hildenburen fleet was operating in space free of the things, and that they were just surrounded by the bombs. This is not the case. Once allied fleets succeed in tunneling to the Hildenburen, they find that the space is still covered in explosives. There isn't an obvious method which the Hildenburen are using to avoid blowing up on their own mines, but there are mines everywhere, totally ignoring the presence of the Hildenburen ships, but making it quite difficult to maneuver for everyone else.

That said, once they are reached, the Hildenburen show no quarter, counterattacking in full force.

Burnination called forth a Craftworld, which clears bumblebombs by flying into them essentially, being too large (the size of a moon) and well shielded (impenetrable to most weapons) to care about the explosions. The downside is that the Craftworld has no offensive weapons, so the Hildenburen are largely ignoring the Burninite fleet, which is unable to go FTL and waiting for the craftworld to clear enough bombs that any portion of the fleet can be mobile.

Thorgood sends a communique to the University of Planet asking if they have any idea whatsoever on how the Hildenburen could be avoiding blowing up on their own bombs.

Remember the Gar''zhog observer pod?

"Fleets of this galaxy: intelligence indicates that Queen Verona of the Hildenburen herself will arrive here shortly. We do not assess you definitely capable of winning this battle. The Gar''zhog are willing to assist you if any of you will accept help now. We ask no conditions for the privilege of facing the Queen of the Great Enemy. The offer remains open for 45 seconds, after which it will not be made again."
