His body shot up as he woke up suddenly, and he rubbed his eyes a little, and clutched his head, in pain. He then looked around, the eyes opening slowly on his face, and then looked down, and observed the platform he was on, his curiosity rising, and then he started to take a deep breath. His curiosity raised even more as he realized that he wasn't breathing, which was also very concerning to him, as he know that he needed to breath..........at least he thought he did, but did die, so that was still weird. He didn't have a physical form anymore. He then stood up, getting off the platform. He walked over to a wall, and knocked on it, still observing how it was a whole white room.

"Hey! Can someone tell me what the hell is going on here, I was dead and now I am suddenly alive, this makes no god damn sense. I mean it, like no sense at all, now let me out of here, before I have to knock some heads to get my way" he said with a slightly angry tone, although he was still very curious at his current state.

A voice from within, female in tone called to him. 'Environmental Guardian Online start up sequence initiated. Initiate Varshar protocol. Spiritual binding holding. Spiritual pressure good. Perception linking. Sharpening. Sharpening.' Liam's vision would shift slightly. Whatever he focused on was magnified one-hundred fold. The sensation left soon after as the voice of the woman in his head spoke again.

'MCC test initiate.' The voice shifted again, seeming closer and friendlier. 'Greetings. Do you recall your name?'

He looked around as he heard the voice calling to him from within and he listened to what it said with precision. "Spiritual binding.........hmm, wait.......binding, I was dead, and now I'm binded....Varshar, this is starting to make more and more sense as this progresses along......" he said with a curious tone. He then heard the next words, and the tone of the voice, making him relax a little.

(Fixed Post) He looked around as he heard the voice calling to him from within and he listened to what it said with precision. "Spiritual binding.........hmm, wait.......binding, I was dead, and now I'm binded....Varshar, this is starting to make more and more sense as this progresses along......" he said with a curious tone. He then heard the next words, and the tone of the voice, making him relax a little.

"My name is Liam Cahal Gardner, part of the Varden, I would like to request information on the present situation, as something must of happened and it caused memory loss, as my memory on the subject is unclear" he said in a calm tone.

Two voices now spoke in Liam’s head, one in the background and one in the foreground.

‘Memory check. Query shows a distinct recognition of the present, past, and future as well as a distinction between them. Consciousness check. What is five plus three?’

‘You are on board the Titan, Shinedown, piloted by Fleet Admiral Rye Apis near SOL Stat, a station in deep orbit around Terra’s star.’ Instead of getting to the true meat of Liam’s question the voice asked a question. ‘What is the last think you remember?’

Liam started to notice the two voices speaking in his head and almost fell over, trying to get used to voices talking in his head and he shuddered a little, and then grinned, a very shit eating grin. "Really now? It's eight, I hope....." he said with a loud chuckle and then nodded his head, taking in the information with quick precision, and then he raised a brow, and thought about the question, with great thought and then shrugged.

"I remember dying, being killed by someone, and then wandering around in the afterlife, trying to just figure out what my next move was before I moved on but It appears that I will not be going anywhere, anytime soon".

The voice in the background spoke one last time and then was gone. ‘Cognitive check. MMC complete. Varshar protocol complete.’

‘Your spirit has been bound with your consent and the blessing of the Varden to a physical shell called a Varshar through a ritual performed by the Wielder Core. I am known as EGO, Enviromental Guardian Online and you do not have to speak to communicate with me. You can think and I will understand.’

‘You are being contained for the moment as you are the first human to ever experience this. The action taken by the Varden and afforded to you is considered a great honor and a formidable risk. Many in the Varden felt responsible for your death and as such have collectedly reached out to you, pulling the needed strings to arrive here, for you to find yourself in this present situation and not deceased.’

Liam's eyes widened a little but then went back to normal, he had a little feeling that is what happened to him, as he did feel much different. He took in a breath, knowing that he didn't have to but did anyway. He looked around the room again and then nodded his head slowly, remembering all the people he had met before, and his face softened at the thought of Kristen, as he knew that he had a crush on her, and that weighed heavily on him, he hoped she was alright but it was unlikely, after all, he had missed a lot of events.

"EGO, I appreciate all that the Varden has done for me, but I request a bit of information from you if you would oblige. I wish to know the status of Kristin Leon, as I fear for her safety, if you know that, I would be incredibly grateful, I haven't spoken to her in a very long time".

EGO did not respond to the request immediately. It was as if it were waiting on a confirmation or permission to divulge the information. ‘Kristen Leon is currently and approximately twenty meters to your right and observing you. She is currently in good physical condition.’ There was a slight pause before EGO continued as if it was waiting for his emotional reaction.

‘Your current body and the linking of EGO with you grants you a number of abilities that can pose a potential danger to those you interact with.’ Across the room a small hatch opened. In a small glass box was a common chicken egg that you could find in any supermarket on Terra. ‘Please pick up this egg without damaging it and then please transfer it between your hands a number of times.’ If this was done properly EGO would speak again. ‘Please replace the egg.’ The hatch would take the glass box and egg up and close.

A 1600 mm plate of hardened steel would descend from the ceiling. ‘Attempt to punch through the steel plate please.’

Liam adjusted his suit as he sat in the shuttle, latched inside to be secure. He looked over at Kristin as he heard her speaking and cracked his bones a bit. He was still getting used to his new body, luckily Kristin had been there to help him along the way, which was nice, as he always found comfort in her company. "Kristin, just to make sure I'm briefed on the whole situation, the attack on the bridge, what exactly happened, specific of the sort, describe the situation so I'm up to date on all information so no mistakes are made when we negotiate the peace down there." he remarked to her, his tone professional but a bit relaxed. He wanted to make sure that nothing he said was incorrect, as even the slightest mistake could destabilize the peace they would be trying to negotiate.

Kristen was also seated and secured to her seat in the shuttle. EGO was piloting the tiny ship with very minor input from the both of them. She was dressed in a similar uniform to him and had been watching him in admiration for a moment. A blush came across her cheeks when she eventually realized she had been staring. He was adapting to his predicament quite quickly.

"A prototype frigate class vessel was used in the bombing of The Great Seto Bridge which crosses the Solinus Sea and joins Shintenchi and South East Aslund. This ship was a CONCORD vessel. The weapon system used in the bombing was also of Ayenee origin. The weapon system that was used could have caused an extinction level event on Terra as it involved the use of self replicating nano-machines. These types of weapon systems are outlawed in Ayenee, Eden, the Milky Way, and Andromeda. We do heavily rely on nano-machines for other applications and nano-machine weapons have been used by the various empires and factions of Ayenee and Eden in the past."

She adjusted the front of her uniform. "The Inaya Accord governs what laws we can enforce in high-security space and to a lesser degree, low-security space in Ayenee and Eden. The Accord has no legality outside of Ayenee and Eden. That is a matter of sovereignty and intergalactic law. There has been no committee to establish such laws and I am sure that if we were to find the person or people responsible they would try and hide behind these details. It was a terrorist act plain and simple. Many thousands of people lost their lives and if not for the actions of the Taiyou and their allies every living soul on Terra may have very well been extinguished that day."

She leaned forward in her seat as much as the harness allowed her to. "The Taiyou support Shintenchi and from the briefings I have read there is a great amount of friction between Shintenchi and that nation's allies and the Terran National Government. CONCORD has not had dealings with Shintenchi and our relationship with the Taiyou was tenuous before the bombing. CONCORD deployed the Varden Expeditionary Force to support the Terran National Government and defend them from the Aschen."

Kristen motioned with her hands now as she continued to speak. "Letch Gordon was formerly a CONCORD agent and working on the Starburst project which was in large part the prototype frigate used in the bombing of the Great Seto Bridge. He stole the frigate a few months ago but based on the information we have gathered Letch had nothing to do with the bombing. He was killed by a member of his crew, a crew he picked up in null-security space somewhere in Curse."

She reached her left hand out to the control panel. Her fingers danced briefly across the glasslike surface. "We have reason to believe that the Taiyou intend to launch an attack on Ayenee and Eden. UCON has always been involved with the affairs of Terra and Councilor Chevalle feels they are fair and open enough in their dealings that they are the best candidate to perform an inquiry and investigation among those available. While CONCORD has hired another group and are performing our own investigation we are obligated to allow a group that can remain unbiased otherwise any findings we make can be refuted."

She then smiled brightly at Liam. "Even if we find the culprit and it has nothing to do with CONCORD the Taiyou may choose to ignore the evidence. Our investigative findings would be used to gain support from the empires and other entities in and outside of Ayenee and Eden so we could repel a Taiyou attack on the galaxy. This is why peace with UCON is so important."

Liam listened to what Kristin was saying and then he realized that she had been staring at him for a bit, but he decided not to mention it and focused on the mission at hand. "So the ship bombed the bridge that connects two regions, and we all have reason to believe that it was a terrorist attacked staged to disrupt conversations and communication between different factions." he mulled over, speaking with a tone of professionalism as before. He then rubbed his chin a bit, and looked down at the panel, seeing what she was doing. "So we are here to insure peace and stabilization among the region so nothing like this happens." he added and looked over at her, his face a bit grim.

"Do you feel as though the Taiyou have been looking for a reason to attack, and that they are using this incident to have an excuse to do their attack?" he asked her, he then smiled a bit at her in return, nodding. "If I am correct, then our work will not be easy, we are trying to prevent war and insure peace among the people of this region." he remarked, still rubbing his chin a bit.

She scrunched her face up and then shook her head. "Not exactly this region. We really have enough problems at home with the empires and various factions squabbling with each other. Ayenee is ever at war with itself and our mission has always been peacekeeping. We are here to open talks with UCON, learn about their various cultures and histories, and assist them in the investigation through sharing our own. With this Councilor Chevalle hopes to gain intergalactic support should the Taiyou attempt to invade Ayenee."

She turned back to the view screen and watched the ballet of distant starships briefly before returning her eyes to Liam. "No one outside of Ayenee and Eden grasps the true role of CONCORD or the complex relationships between different corporations, alliances, coalitions, blocs, factions, and empires. If the Taiyou do invade Ayenee or Eden they will quickly find themselves beset on all sides by various factions some of which are quite powerful. While some groups have no love for CONCORD we keep order enough for them to do business and make a profit. They recognize we are necessary."

"All that being said: No one has direct access to empire space from outside the galaxy except us. Once they discover this they will either have to gain the political and military support of various factions in Ayenee and Eden or retreat. It makes no sense to me that they would invade though. Based on every simulation I have seen the Taiyou have no chance for victory in Ayenee or Eden."

In the waning hours of the cycle traffic had picked up around the station as ships came to and from the Varden titan. Troop and matériel freighters like the Promethean convoyed the initial ground and security forces like precious food to the queen of a giant stellar hive, piloting drones and manned craft dipping and weaving through the lumbering vessels that would be the metal homes of the Blue Legion for their stay in Ayenee and Eden. Most of the personnel transported to the Ardenian ship would be the vital administrators and diplomatic personnel that would oversee the expulsion of the Taiyou from the Varden home. These individuals were skilled administrators, capable of speaking several languages and having a propebsity to absorb cultures and civilizations unlike any they had witnessed before. The others would be embedded directly with CONCORD and Varden forces, as both a means of deniability to the Empire as well as maximizing the sparse forces the Apparatus could contribute: while many others would simply be given a ship, currency to raise a mercenary force and the simple order to harry the Taiyou until they retreated or were annihilated.

In the depths of one of the orbital's control station, the Chairman stood across the holographic image of the transnational government's Minister of the Administration: Petros Zhirayr poured over the station's personnel list and contingent, thousands of marines and hundreds of tons of armored vehicles, artillery pieces and would be the first members of the Apparatus to leave the Home galaxy.

"Very good, very good Chairman." Petros steel eyes were bright with a sense of anticipation that not even thousands of lightyears of distance could hide. "From a debriefing with the Military Council, the Apparatus is moving all over the galaxy: your little expedition should be overshadowed by the rest of their movements at the Aschen border and the Local Region."

"While we're organizing the expedition here, we are waiting to recieve a Varden delegation to bring the Apparatus up to date on the situation in Ayenee and Eden." The Chairman spoke from behind a holo-digital overlay, great planes of light shifting around him as they scoured maps od Andromeda, Home, and Onyx. "Initial planning for operations actually on-the-ground in Ayenee and Eden have yet to take shape but we are confident the General Staff will have the information they need soon.”

“Good, Chairman. As you know, the secrecy of this mission is paramount -- duly so, I am the only member of ONE with executive oversight of this expedition. Everything is to be reported directly through the Military Council.” As Petros let his gaze wander from the maps and overlays the Chairman nodded his head slightly, even before the Legion had been assembled the numbers, names and localities of anything involved had been classified into obscurity. Amongst the great bureaucratic ocean of the Coalition, nothing but the most precise eye could even ascertain what these Blue Legion personnel were.

”Chairman Kage, we have a Varden shuttle inbound.”

“Bring them on in, we’ll handle the exchanges while the rest of the transfer is underway.”



Onboard the central bay of the station, a detail of marine Security Police were waiting behind a grav-dock as the shuttle was ushered in to the orbital’s primary superstructure. As they entered, the two security drones escorting the craft from the titan peeled off to return to duty for another transport, having guided them through the clogged traffic of ferrying vessels.

As the shuttle came to a rest it was restrained in the large bay with magno-gravitic couplings, the device producing suspending fields that shimmered with bright crackling pulses of energy. With the two folds finally stabilizing, the translucent fields were able to hold the bulk of the shuttle over the gaping expanse of the bay under them.

Main hanger with attached drone hanger and fuel bay of an Erebus class titan.


There was a fury of activity on board the Bannockburn as it took on the multitude of administrators and diplomatic personnel. Swarms of heavy hanger drones weaved in and out of the fray to move equipment and stage it away from ammunition and fuel stores. The Apparatus personnel were escorted to a staging area and made comfortable as CONCORD personnel in gray duty uniforms performed checks on fuel levels and maintenance inspections.

A hologram roughly explained the process of a titan's bridge, the use of cynosural fields, and the documented side effects of Ayen drives which amounted to mild nausea to those that had come aboard. Those remaining on the Promethean would not get such a warning or introduction prior to being bridged. Bannockburn's pilot awaited the signal to call for the cyno and engage the bridge.

The shuttle was guided in and set down without incident. Kristen collected a single large black duffel bag after unhooking from her seat. She put the bag over her shoulder. "We have docked. Let us disembark", she said with a smirk in Liam's direction.
