Agarran sat silently in thought, perusing the information as it was presented. The fact that the fleet began to move out of position lended itself to the truth of their statements.

Not an unreasonable set of conditions. The offer of weapons technology was already presented, so it makes sense that they would accept. Defense of the province was, again, going to be a given anyway. Theres a few other things that need to be cleared up first though before we proceed, but that shouldn't be any hindrance. The dragon mused to himself, giving orders to his crew. The Akorn shimmered, as the phase shift was disabled, and began slowly moving towards Cryo. As it did, a message in their fashion was sent back to Murios. In the signal was an Audio File.

"Your Terms are accepted, but two points of clarification are needed. First, are we given leave to teraform the planet, or only to forge a colony. Either case is acceptable to us, however some preperations will be needed for Teraformation, both on our end and on yours. Secondly, we willingly agree to share our weapons technology, however it's function and use may be inaccessible due to your species physical limitations. To circumvent this, we offer a consultant to serve as liason, to better explain and demonstrate the function and use of our technology, and to assist in it's adaptation for your purposes and intent. This consultant, as well as several functioning weapons, will be awaiting retrieval by your representatives upon our arrival to the planet."

After the message was sent, the Akorn continued on it's way to Cryo, Agarran laying his head upon his forelegs as he hummed to himself. The bump in the road had been navigated, and now things could proceed as normal.

"You are relegated to the region of the planet highlighted in the coordinates we sent you." Murious clarified. "You may not make any attempts to terraform the planet, or to expand your colony beyond the borders we have set fourth; to do so would result in unfortunate consequences for both of us." Murios replied.

"I will relay your approval to my superiors, and they will dispatch an envoy to meet with your people in person, to finalize our agreement; additionally we will remain here to supervise your efforts."

Agarran nodded silently, and the Akorn proceeded to the planet of Cryo, the coordinates recieved and designated to his crew. As it passed by the Aschen Cordon, they would discern no visible thrust or propulsion system, the whole vessel really did look like nothing more than a long, rough surfaced, gem covered spear of rock that nevertheless proceeded smoothly towards the planet.

Moving aside to no longer obstruct the Akorn's movements, the small flotilla of Aschen ships kept their weapons trained, but otherwise made no other moves, it would take some time for the cogs of the Aschen Government to turn, and for them to send someone on a more formal basis, but for now, the strange Dragon aliens would be allowed to colonize Cryo.

A vessel slipped out of the darkness, sparking a low read burst of energy as it's systems deposited it into the system. Just as quickly as it appeared, all readings returned to the standard levels found in the noise of space.

Aboard the Unglauss, Ilia and her crew busied about preparing for the expected engagement to come.

"Shockpoint deactivation confirmed, charge levels stable."

"Ma'am, we're not reading radiation from any lidar arrays in the area."

"Enemy starbase location confirmed."

Admiral Ilia Thauce began issuing commands in her usual calm manner. "Have engineering prep for emergency Shockpoint Charging for egress at my command, with auxiliary batteries prepared for translocation. Keep an eye on radiation levels and watch their planck field, alert me the moment it drops."

At that point Ilia smiled "Keep an eye on that starbase, but our goal is to catch the Aschen when they lower the planck fields to warp in. I want to be in position and ready by the time that occurs, so we are functioning at full stealth until we're close enough to that station to intercept their response teams. It stands to reason that they would warp in close to the starbase, as it's a foritified position that can cover them. Maintain obfuscation protocol until we've reached target Axii Morn"

The flurry of activity on the bridge of the Unglauss did nothing to disturb it's silent presence as it moved closer and closer to the starbase. An absolute minimum of output insured that the Unglauss was indistinguishable from the rest of space as far as electronic observation was concerned. And thanks to the Obfuscation protocol, a series of darklight projectors coated the ship in a silent spell that rendered it visually invisible.

Thus, the Unglauss was engaged in absolute stealth, for all intents and purposes invisible to all forms of detection, short of physical contact detection. This came with it's obvious benefits, but also a number of issues. The energy needed to maintain this stealth meant that the weapon systems had to be shut off entirely, if Ilia wanted to maintain a level of charge to the shockpoint drive and test her theory. It would take several subcycles to bring them back online to engage once the enemy responded. Furthermore, the mobility of the ship had to be limited to reduce IR signatures. The vessel was moving at a snails pace at this point, and wouldn't be able to accelerate without revealing it's position.

"Alert, Energy signal detected. Energy patterns consistent with Asylian shock-point drive. Though I am detecting no ships currently. They're likely using stealth technology. I'll attempt to adjust our sensor fidelity." EVE reported, as she appeared as a flickering hologram in front of the Watchtower's tactical officer. She highlighted the Sensors manager interface, and the signal appeared as a flickering icon.


Commander Jarlath grumbled, it wasn't long before he finished reading the mission briefing transmitted from command. He still had a somewhat respectable garrison from the initial encounter with the Tarragon. Though the Dragons were allowed to settle Cryo and live in relative harmony with it's colonists, undisturbed by the ever changing shift of Aschen politics.

EVE chirped up once more. "Admiral Hanley has suggested wild weasel tactics to maintain an air of unpredictability regarding the enemy. They're likely expecting us to signal for reinforcements."

Jarlath nodded. "We've got an ace in the hole." He said, opening up a transmission to Agarran down to the planet below.

"Tarragon Colony, this is the Cryo Watchtower. Our sensors detected an energy signature consistent with a ship that attacked Molecay a few days ago. I'm transmitting everything we have on this enemy. We'll need you to assist us in mounting a response. You are clear to engage enemy assets."

Terminating the transmission, as the watchtower command center was a flurry of activity, Jarlath turned to EVE.

"Have the Athos and her floatilla begin orbital burn, have them adjust their heading, and hold back at the far side of the planet. Scramble the alert wing, and redirect our garrison fleet to intercept."

EVE nodded. "Calculating possible trajectories based on point of origin, I'll focus sensor sweeps on this sector."

The Unglauss, slowly but surely, made it's way to the prime position nearby the tower. This success was not met with elation or enjoyment. Ilia stood on the bridge, looking at the tower, a frown distorting her otherwise pleasant features. "....What are you doing, Aschen?" She muttered to herself, contemplating the lack of response from the Aschen.

"Confirm, they've detected our entry yes?" She said to the bridge officer.

"Yes ma'am. Our stealth systems became active immediately after, but the initial entry could not be hidden. There's no doubt the Aschen detected it." The officer responded.

"Then why haven't they warped... Ahh." Ilia smiled several displays lit up and the crew began calling out about activity on the station itself. "I see... They value this planet less than Molecay, so they're reacting with the forces they have on hand. Appropriate I suppose. Begin Analysis, I want a full register of their response forces and capabilities. We can use this to draw a correlative to their other planets garrisons."

An affirmative rang out, and the bridge activity began in earnest. Ilia sat back in the command chair and issued another order to the bridge officer. "Maintain current position and stealth systems, but change power priority from the engines to the weapons, and bring them online. The Aschen are up to something, and I don't want us caught unprepared."

"Yes ma'am" the officer responded, before relaying the orders to the engine room. As she did so, Ilia continued to gaze curiously at the tower. Something in the back of her mind, some unbidden instinct of the Asylian people, was digging at her consciousness. It set her teeth on edge and disturbed her deeply. Instincts existed for a reason, and she knew that this one was important, but could not understand why...

Commander Jarlath scowled in front of the display, before he decided it was time to play his hand, or maybe bluff his opponent into revealing themselves.

"Activate the aegis field." The Commander ordered, and on cue, the Command crew began to work diligently, manning their controls, as the lighting faded to red, and alarms began to blare throughout the station.

"EVE, launch all fighter wings, and bring all batteries online, have all garrison crews report to their ships, and prepare for engagement, but keep everything on the low."

---

All throughout the station, alarms blared, Damage control, and security teams began to rush to their posts, taking up cover behind bulkheads, while the Station's fighter wing all began to run to their ships.

The Prowlers were out first, sophisticated stealth fighters that vanished the moment they launched, using a sophisticated array of ECM, hull cooling, and a carbon composite hull to make themselves virtually invisible to nearly all forms of detection, they began to blend in seamlessly with the background radiation of space, even visually they were difficult to distinguish thanks to their glossy black coloration.

Hundreds of Raptor Talon star-fighters began to pour from the main body of the station, moving into tight formations to provide a broad range of cover. A Single Hesperis class drone carrier, and a salvaged Royarks class robotics cruiser from the Coalition era.

Positioning themselves near the station, the Hesperis Drone carrier began to unleash a swarm of Furie drones, by the millions these automobile sized drones, armed with four 30mm MECS A-6 Thraxon kinetic weapon systems began to swarm fourth from the cruiser, like writhing tentacles of metal began to swarm around the Watchtower in a thick soup of metal, and plastic.

The shimmering aegis field flared to life, engulfing the watchtower and the two cruisers in a shimmering sphere of light.

Cresting the planet, the Athos, and seventeen Aschen warships could be detected as they came over the horizon. Three Iconoclast class battleships, five Punisher class battleships, four Hastati class cruisers, two Athena class missile cruisers, and seven Triarii class destroyers.

Commander Murios was aboard the Athos, watching her displays carefully, Commander Jarlath had summoned the Tarragon, possibly to see their capability. She had been under orders to simply hold position until the Tarragon responded.

"Commander, I have calculated all possible locations of the enemy ship, taking into account possible angles of approach against the watchtower. I believe the enemy vessel is in this zone here." EVE said, highlighting a wide swathe of space between the jump point, and several attack points against the watchtower.

"A missile salvo from the Athena class cruisers covering this sector would be sufficient to force them to disengage their stealth systems, and engage."

Murios nodded. "Commander Jarlath has a plan, our objective is to hold position, and gather data."

The formation of Aschen warships had come in with Cryo's sun at their backs, making them difficult to detect given the sun's radiation, and light output. However, once they reached their position, they came to a stop, just beyond weapons range, but well within striking distance.

The Aschen knew they were there, and judging by their orientation, had a pretty good idea where the Unglauss was, but they didn't strike. Like the watchtower, the floatilla of Aschen warships held position.

Ilia smiled as she saw the Tower respond with it's plethora of fighter craft, drone carriers, and other assorted vessels.

"Ma'am, we're getting readings of vessels coming over the planets horizon. Visual acquisition is impossible, the suns behind them."

"Confirmed stealth vessels have launched, several fighter sized craft were detected but have since dropped off of all sensors"

"Barrier technology confirmed around tower and cruiser vessels, unknown nature."

"No psychic response from drone carriers, unmanned weapons systems confirmed."

"Enemy taking up positions... No weapons contact."

"Of course not, they're being cautious. They've heard what we pulled off at Molecay and are waiting to see what we do here." Admiral Thauce said with her usual calm tones. "But their commander is impatient and wants us to make a move, so he's showing us what he has in hopes we'll react to it. They believe us to be barbarians who'll strike the moment we see prey, but that underestimation will cost them. Confirm time table."

"Yes ma'am, seven cycles until The Leaon, The Baruut, and The Sinval arrive."

"Good. Maintain position, and have everyone ready for their assault. They WILL attack, it's only a matter of time before they narrow down our position, and once they have they'll likely assault with flak to force us to respond. Charge the Superlative layer and Kinetic Plating. Once our reinforcements arrive, we'll force them to call for their own, and then we strike them all down."

Far Side of Cryo

Agarran yawned and stretched. It had taken less time than he had expected to launch the Auxillary orbiters from the Akorn. Some of his subjects had apparently had them prepped for months in anticipation. Not too fond of the planet it would seem to him, but it was no matter. This was their home now, and they would make do, as they always had.

The Auxillary orbiters were not nearly as impressive as the Akorn itself, measuring only a few thousand feet in length, and having far fewer weapons systems. They maintained the Phase Shift Defense technology, as well as several Crystal batteries for Assaults, but largely the orbiters were intended for transporting goods from colonies to vessels waiting in orbit.

For this reason, Agarran was not in his usual place at the command center of the vessel, but instead awaited in a specially designed Airlock. When the time came to eliminate the enemy, he would hold his breath and launch out into space. Escions were immune to the cold of the vacuum, were only empowered by solar radiation, and could hold their breath for months, years if they conserved their energy. He wouldn't be able to use the famed dragon breath, but considering most space faring vessels and species were incredibly heat resistant, it wouldn't have been of any use anyway. Tearing his way into an enemy ships armor and opening it to the void of space would be much more effective, as long as he didn't have to worry about hostile fighter crafting blasting his hide with Anti-mana and shrapnel.

He sent a psychic message to his crew, who then relayed the message to the Aschen vessels in the area.

Agarran here, requesting specifics as to where we are to be positioned, and what the nature of our foe is.

EVE responded promptly, transmitting her narrowed down zone of possible contact with the stealth ship to Agarran. The highlighted region of space was carefully put between the Asylian insertion point, and possible strategic positions of the watchtower. But EVE was also receiving real time intelligence from Langara.

"There is the possibility that the Asylian commander may attempt to open a portal to the warp, therefore I strongly advise we maintain Planck integrity throughout the course of this engagement." EVE reported to both Commanders Jarlath and Murios.

Commander Jarlath sighed. This meant they wouldn't be able to signal the fleet for reinforcements, and they would be at a maneuvering disadvantage with the Unglauss' shock-point drive, and it's auxiliaries.

This was something the Aschen were accounting for, though. The Prowlers were moving through the area, carefully, and stealthily deploying small canister sized stealth mines all around the perceived position of the Unglauss. The logic was when it attempted to perform it's instant move to reposition, it would impact one of the thousands of mines that were being deployed around the area. But it wasn't just mines the prowlers were deploying, several prowler squadrons were moving through the void deploying thousands of tungsten ball bearings, while harmless by themselves, the Aschen believed they could cause considerable damage to a vessel moving at high velocities through the clouds of these small bearings. EVE was testing a theory.

The ball bearings offered a second advantage of being easier to track, the Aschen could track their movements, and extrapolate a silhouette.

Other than the stealthed prowlers moving through the void. The Watchtower, and the Aschen ships continued to hold position.

Cryo System Outskirts

Appearing from seemingly out of nowhere, outside the edge of the system, a massive space station drifted forward while visibly decelerating. It wasn't long before it came to a halt and reactivated some of its features. Arriving shortly after it, four large assault satellites appeared similarly while moving to keep a defensive perimeter in front of the space station. As they drifted forward, they reactivated features of their own before eventually idling in what seemed to be designated spots. Then came a small number of ships, also noticeably decelerating, as they took a formation in front of the satellites. The formation was loose, if not organized. It was cohesive enough to show that they were a proper fleet, likely with a commander at the head. All the ships idled as they reactivated key features, awaiting the right moment to charge in.

Onboard the space station, attached to a long brown and purple stick of organic matter, a green bulbous cross between a plant and a gelatinous slime form pulsed slowly and steadily. It wore a Continuum officer's peaked cap colored black that bore all the medals of its station. Before it, two young girls in full Continuum military uniforms, colored black with side caps included, sat before consoles, each with vulpine ears and a vulpine tail. One turned to speak to the green bulbous creature.

Roger roger! Sending out the orders now! All stations and fleets, the operation is to begin at once. I repeat the operation is to begin at once. Above all else, remember that any Aschen ships are friendlies. They are on our side so do not attack them under any circumstance.


Quivering somewhat loosely, perhaps excitedly, the bulbous creature began glowing profusely as if communicating to something.

Roger roger, CT-6 Populus! We will ready the CRYSTON-MM!BFG06 to be fired at-will. All other ships are arming, and the Methane-Neuro Cryston-Linc has been formed between all personnel aboard this station. CT-4 Monarda has established Pollination for all ships, and has confirmed your orders, CT-6! All we await now is the signal and collaboration strategies of our Aschen allies.


With orders given, activity on the Starbase multiplied intensively as the girls in front of the consoles began encoding and sending a message to their Aschen allies. As they did so, they also had the CT-4, Monarda Didyma, ready the stealth devices their ships had, psychically powered wonders provided by the Bonsiin that allowed for short duration cloaking through mental manipulation. Paired with the other stealth technology they possessed from each race's advancements, they had four different overlapping effects that stacked with each other to ensure a hidden ship, even if one was taken out. The CT-4 did not activate them, however, not entirely deeming them necessary yet.

Aschen Watchtower

From where the Aschen were, they'd receive notice that allied signatures had arrived outside the Planck field's reach. They'd also receive a private and encrypted incoming video message from the Continuum. When opened, CT-6 Populus Tremuloides was on the screen, attached to a large organic stick. The bulbous mass of slime and plant pulsated ever so slightly as it spoke in absolutely and unequivocally butchered, if somewhat understandable, Anquietas. At least it tried its best. Its voice was a slimy and eloquent mess, somewhat mired with a cross between a gurgle and a smooth reverberating tone.

Unglauss

After continued study of the Watchtower, Ilia began to frown at the lack of action. "They've given out their display, they can see it had no effect, and their smart enough to triangulate our likely position so then why haven't they issued flak" She muttered aloud, she then looked at one of her consoles where in continously recorded data from all sensors was being displayed. She flipped through several sections and brought up the record detailing the readings from the tower launching fighters. After a momentary glance she looked up and gave an order to the crew. "fine tune scanning equipment, look for any abnormalities in paths leaving the tower in our general direction with a vector magnitude of twelve.

Four seconds later one of the crewmates gave a report "I've multiple small, canister objects floating in space, along with a large volume of what appears to be metal balls of some sort"

Ilia rolled her eyes "They don't have an active lidar array, so they're going with an analog recreation. It stands to reason they can track the metal, and those canisters are likely to be depth charges of some kind." She collected her thoughts and began relaying more orders, but before she could.

"ma'am, Unidentified vessels detected at edge of Aschen planck effect" A crewmen called out. "Vessel is holding position, beyond psionic reach, we can't scan internal activity."

"Possibly Allies to the Aschen. Logical, but unfortunate. I'd hoped their pride would prevent them from calling on others to help them." Ilia sighed, then paused to process. They didn't have enough information to have verified the nature of the new arrivals, but the lack of pyschic readings suggested it wasn't Matokey, and the Tau should have been kept busy in their shogunate by Pilav and his raiders. An unidentified third party then that they had allied with, The Aschen were confirmed to be generally xenophobic, the likelihood of this being a standard terran humanoid faction was high.

Complications were continuing to pile up. "Very well, keep tracking on the newcomers, but our primary goal remains the same. Initiate telekinetic manipulators, produce a force replication of the unglauss and have it begin approaching the towers bilge. At the same time, charge kinetic pulses on those Depth charges, target the tower itself. The explosions will likely be useless for actually causing damage, but it'll get them out of our way and inform the Aschen against any unmanaged assets in the field. Unless they really are foolish enough to provide us with ammunition against them, in which case they just make it easier for us."

Ilia issued these orders and, in a rapid set of activity, the crew carried it out. Magitek specialists harnessed into amplifiers utilized their abilities to create an invisible field of kinetic force matching the size and shape of the Unglauss, and began guiding it towards the tower's base. As this invisible, imaginary entity traveled through space, it displaced the ball bearings, sending readings to the tower that would be seen as the ships movement. This maneuver was risky however, as the false ship had to be sent from the unglauss actual position, so if the enemy discovered the ruse, or thought to trace the path back the way it came, they would find the Unglauss. Ilia was only willing to make this move as, by releasing the ball bearings, the enemy had shown they did not have the means to track them, and as such would be watching the bearings for where the unglauss was. Knowing this, giving them a red herring to track would make their future movements easier.

The Kinetic pulses were traps placed over the depth charges with very specific purposes. These would activate whenever the Unglauss came close, immediately triggering an event similiar to that of the shock point drive, but of much smaller scale, essentially shifting the charges at high speed towards the tower. It was akin to catching a grenade and throwing it back at the one who had attempted to deliver it. Several of the kinetic sorcerers had to be held in reserve in order to maintain these traps, as they maintained them in their mind, and could only deploy and activate them once they were in range. This reduced the use the Unglauss would get from the magitek division until the traps could be deployed, but it would provide essential protection against the charges when the use of redeployment became necessary.

With these measures in place, Ilia began analyzing the minimal data they had gotten from the new arrival before it had dropped off of their scopes. They would have to wait for it to come closer before they could analyze it properly, and they would likely have to use the Psionics division to do so.

Agarran

Agarran sat silently for a few moments, irritated with the lack of action being taken on the Aschens part of things. He had arrived at the location they had directed him to and could see the enemy vessel very clearly. He was curious about why nobody was doing anything about it, and thought it might be a standoff, but the way the aschen were deploying explosives and fighters suggested otherwise.

It took him several seconds to realize that the Aschen couldn't detect the enemy vessel, at which point he chuckled. After enjoying the amusing spectacle for a few more moments, he then reached out with his mind and found one of the crewmen aboard the tower.

I apologise in advance for this, but I do grow tired of waiting He said to a young officer, before overrunning the poor mans mind and possessing his body.

Agarran opened eyes that did not belong to him, and found himself in a hallway outside the tower's bridge. Around his feet were some papers that his host had most likely dropped after he had taken over. "Well... That'll be unfortunate." He said with a tongue and throat that felt very strange to him. He decided not to stay too long, the body was decidedly uncomfortable, and covered in sweat. "I forgot how much mammals sweat." He said, shaking the body he had taken, before walking it onto the bridge.

The sudden arrival of a low ranking individual was likely to be noticed, but Agarran chose not to delay. "Apologies for this unseemly style of communication, but transmitting from my orbiter to your Giona would be to slow for this purpose." Agarran spoke, using the young mans voice "Put yourselves at ease, It is I, Agarran. I'll release this host as soon as possible, but first.." And here the young man would walk over to a display of the area surrounding the tower and point to a specific point on that display. "Your enemy is currently holding position here. Their stealth systems are phenomanal, to be sure, but they are yet still living and sentient organisms, and as such can be detected by any Escion. Their minds are a flurry of activity, like a thousand bee hives crammed into as small a space as can be found."

Agarran would then turn to the Admiral, smiling with the young mans teeth. Smiling wasn't something Escions did, unless they were trying to threaten someone, but he had read several books on human behaviors and had come to understand that humans did it all the time to set others at ease.

Aboard the tower, the readings began to slowly come through, EVE had been tracking the arrival of continuum ships, while fine-tuning the Watchtower's wide spectrum systems to further hone in on the Unglauss. Commander Jarlath watched with curiousity, as EVE absorbed as much data as she could, she watched the movements of the ball bearings. It was curious to the construct, the intended purpose of the ball bearings was to make shockpoint jumps difficult, it seemed though, the enemy had presumed the spheres were being used to track the Unglauss' location.

The ruse played directly into EVE's tactical assessment. It would only be confirmed with the arrival of the low ranking individual from the cooridors outside the main command hall. Jarlath looked to the young man for a moment before he identified himself as Agarran.


The Canister mines would react accordingly to the influence exerted on them, with no countermeasures that could be observed. The Aschen had deployed them more as a nuisance, and to gather data on the Unglauss' defenses, than any measure to stop them.

"Focus all wide spectrum scanners on that point." Jarlath ordered, and EVE nodded. "I'm detecting very faint whispers, wide spectrum is picking up psychic, and biochemical activity indiicative of lifeforms, we have confirmation from Continuum sensor readouts.

"We have positive sensor lock." EVE Reported.

"Right." Jarlath responded, looking to the false ship made from the displaced ball bearings.

"Let's take their bluff." He said, keying up the Athos.

"You have positive confirmation on their true position?" He called out, as Murios responded on the readout.

Jarlath nodded. "Excellent." He said, turning to Agarran's avatar.

"We're going to attack the false ship, lure them into a sense of security. When we make our move, I want you to open up on the true vessel, We'll coordinate with the Continuum. High Command wants prisoners, so if you can disable it, that would be preferred. If not, destroy them." Jarlath instructed.

"Transmit tactical packet to the Continuum." He instructed, and EVE nodded.

"Athos, you may initiate the attack, once the feint is complete, move in on the enemy's location."

Keying up the continuum ships, Jarlath spoke up.

"Tremuloides, this is Watchtower Actual, we're preparing a feint on the enemy position. I've instructed the Athos to attack the false signature, when it opens it's attack, engage the enemy vessel, and neutralize it. Disabling it is preferable to destruction, High Command wants the crew alive for interrogation."

----

A few moments later, the Athos opened fire from it's position, firing only a single projectile from it's frag cannons at the position where the fake Unglauss was moving through space. The opening signal to engage the real Unglauss.

Agarran tilted the young mans head and said to Jarlath. "You want them disabled? We can do that, though I'd advise keeping any fighters away from them until we've subdued them. You humanoids have a tendency to bleed a lot when your minds are assaulted."

And then the body of the young officer collapsed as Agarran released him, and reopened his own eyes. He shook his shoulders, enjoying the comfort of his own skin, before issuing a mental command.

The Orbiter rapidly relocated, in a facing that was towards the false vessel, until it was close enough in proximity for Agarran to unleash what he had in mind.

What followed was a psychic roar strong enough that the Aschen and continuum both, though they were not the target of the fury, could hear it, even those who had no psychic capability whatsoever felt the hair on their neck stand up as though someone was walking on their grave.

But for the Asylians, the effect was far more severe...

Aboard the Unglauss

All was calm. Ilia and her people watched, and from time to time they would give her reports, such as movements by the continuum, and the approach of a strange vessel that didn't match Aschen parameters they had. Ilia considered it for awhile, watching it approach the ruse that the kinetics had sent forward. Shortly after, a single shot was fired at the Ruse.

Ilia smiled, her opponent was not an idiot. Her best guess suggested he had fired the round to verify whether the readings were accurate or not. She had to assume that the Aschen Faerie had been processing data since their arrival and was close to triangulating their position.

"Alright, they'll know where we are for sure by now, so let's-"

That was as much as she got out before her head started to split in half.

Describing what occured was difficult. Ilia, and indeed most of her crew, had expanded their conciousness to telepathically detect any threats. When so many minds worked in concert, they were able to reach out and effect a great many things.

It was as though the crew of the Unglauss were a great big sphere of liquid. This sphere could distort itself as needed to reach out and investigate or effect different events. They could use this to attack, defend, to use their ability even at a great distance from the ship itself, when focused.

However, now it was if a rain of glass was driving into that sphere, and then subsequently twisting, spinning, freezing, boiling, and all other sorts of horrible things.

Ilia barely managed to keep her eyes open, she felt a warmth dripping from her chin. She looked out across her bridge and what she saw frightened her.

Two of her crew lay very, very still, their eyes wide open, filled with blood, as more blood dripped from their ears and noses. Most of the others had their hands clamped around their heads, one in particular was repeatedly smashing her face into her console, to the point that she had broken her nose and knocked several of her teeth loose.

Connected as she was to all the rest of her crew, Ilia could feel the same agony they were all experiencing across the entirety of her ship. The fact she was still cognizant in spite of enduring such unfathomable amounts of pain was due solely to her training and experience. She ordered her thinking, endured the pain, and began analyzing.

This was the only thing that prevented the Entire crew of the Asylian vessel from collapsing into madness. As each of the crewmembers were Psychically connected to each other, all thoughts and impressions were shared and thus allowed them to communicate rapidly no matter the location on the ship. However, all physical sensations were also shared, and the attack that had hit them had taken advantage of this fact to cause immense disruption. Every single crewmen was feeling not only the agony of their own minds being torn into, but the agony of all the others added on top of it. This resulted in such a blinding amount of pain, that two fifths of the crew had expired on the spot from the sheer strain.

Had Ilia not been the tether that maintained control over the interconnected psychic crew, many of them would likely have disconnected from the connection, and the chaos that would have resulted would have prevented them from recovering at all.

As it stood, Ilia fought and struggled to issue a single order, commanding her crew to drop all other tasks and focus all efforts solely on psychic defense.

And inside the deepest part of her own mind, Ilia glared at the enemy giving out the attack. She did not know or recongnize what it was, but she could "see" it in the reflections of it's attack. A psychic attack was essentially exposing ones mind to that of their victim.

And what Ilia saw, though she would not admit it, terrified her.

It was the moment of truth, the moment that both Aschen commanders had been waiting for, now that Agarran had launched his psychic attack against the Unglauss, the Aschen's moment to strike was at hand. In a tactical plan that was only briefly formulated by EVE, the Aschen were working quickly to execute the plan in the precious moments that Agarran's attack had purchased them.

A squadron of prowlers made the first move, small doors retracting along their sleek bodies revealed missile hardpoints, small one hundred and fifty kiloton tactical nuclear warheads streamed fourth from the pair of Prowlers, four missiles in total aimed for the rear section of the Unglauss, banking off, the squadron of Prowlers disappeared once again.

The Furie drones moved next, the writhing mass extending out from the watchtower like a writhing mechanical tentacle, they swarmed towards the Unglauss by the hundred thousands, all pelting it's hull with their weapons, like angry bees trying to sting a much larger animal, but this was only supposed to provide a distraction for the Aschen's next move.

Slipping through the fabric like a thin needle, another Prowler moved towards the Unglauss, opening a pair of small doors, and using inertia to deploy a small device the size of a golf ball, this golf ball sized device was coated in a sticky epoxy like substance that allowed it to adhere to the hull of a ship, an IFF transponder that would allow the Aschen to track the Unglauss' movements throughout the galaxy in real time, and allow them to press an attack should the ship escape.

"We need to board that ship!" Jarlath ordered, and Murios followed suit, with the Athos and her fleet accelerating.

Six Condors moved fourth from the belly of the Athos, each Condor was filled with Adepts of war, eager, and ready to bring the fight to the Unglauss.

When seeing the signal to attack, Tremuloides took it, only to be stopped suddenly by one of the bridge girls.

CT-6 Populus! The Psychic Receptors are going haywire! Whatever is happening up ahead is scrambling them!


Tremuloides spoke in turn.

『tR  Σ  MULOID  Σ  S QUICK ORD  Σ  R STOP SHIPS.

Immediately, the parts of the fleet that had begun advancing stopped, and the Starbase's space yard began producing ships that were more up to date. The assault satellites moved to adopt a more defensive formation as Tremuloides had the bridge girls continue to monitor the psychic assault that was being levied, and scanned for any other vessels on their other systems.

Hmmm... How curious. Agarran thought to himself as he pressed against the consciousnesses of the enemy vessel. He had been attempting to render them all unconscious with a command to sleep, but most of them appeared to instinctively rejected or resisted the order.

After further investigation, he detected another oddity. Fascinating... They are not genetically oriented for hive psionics... and yet they are actively engaging in such measures He mused, as he watched them connect minds again, each one forcibly rejecting his order. With each mind that successfully threw off his assault, the defenses became stronger. And subsequently, the next defender was more easily able to resist the assault. Once the entire crew of the ship had coordinated, the vessel was completely impervious to his assault.

Agarran was conflicted. On the one hand, he could easily press his assault and break through their defenses, but doing so would undoubtedly cause casaulties, and he had been asked to capture them alive. With that in mind, Agarran couldn't afford to press, and would instead have to settle for maintaining his assault to provide cover for the Aschen forces. They'll have to handle the rest, i'm afraid.

Unglauss

Ilia forcibly reestablished command over her crew. One by one she pulled her crewmates together and, with their minds connected to hers, raised a barrier in their psyche against the foe. The liquid of before that had been penetrated by hail of glass, slowly but surely solidified into a diamond hard sphere that no psychic assault could penetrate.

Immediatly after throwing off that assault, Ilia issued an order for all crew to enable PCL. Almost in sync across the entire ship, crew members slipped into their predesignated positions, whereupon a liquid crystal encased them, before solidifying.

Inside of a handful of minutes, the Unglauss was now completely controlled and operated solely through the minds of her crew. This accelerated response time and made Ilia immediatly aware of anything any of her crewmembers were aware of.

Like cells of a single body, they worked together to simultanously fight off the invasive psychic assault while preparing for a counterattack.

Ilia took stock of the situation. The enemy was aware of them, the enemy also had a psychic force of significant strength. Her forces were not sufficient to overcome such an entity. Enemy drones assaulting the unglauss, weapons ineffective against armor. Missile impacts on stern, minimal damage, outer plating breached. The enemy had deployed vessels towards the Unglauss, troop carriers judging by the size and shape. Enemy warships en route to engage.

Reinforcements? No, That creature precludes engagement. Retreat? Necessary. Charge Shockpoint drive, reposition facing. Shadowmessage to Leaon, Baruut, And Sinval. Abort and redirect. Enemy boarders...

Ilia's gaze was hard and cold as her mind issued a single order with all the hatred she had Eliminate them.


This entire series of orders, responses, and commands occured in the span of a single moment, and in the next, the weapon systems of the Unglauss engaged even as the stealth systems completely shut down.

A barrage of unstable Iradite flak charges were sent towards the incoming condors, saturating a sphere of space 100 feet in every direction from them with particles that, on even a moments contact with any form of matter or energy, would Atomize the contact. The only way those condors would survive was by teleporting out of range of it, and the planck field made that impossible.

Even so, Ilia gave a handful of orders to the Psyops team, which were now at half strength thanks to the assault. rip a hole to the warp. Planck field in effect, continue trying. They'll detect the attempt, and know that they can't lower the field. Fire the Anchor at the planet.

At this last order, a small, inert cylinder of metal about the size of a mailbox was jettisoned from the Unglauss at mach 6 towards the planet.

Alongside it, the Unglauss fired a barrage of torpedos at the station. Each Torpedo contained a thermonuclear charge capable of turning the station into slag.

The Unglauss also fired off a salvo at the Athos, a battery of fourteen charged tachyon cannons used for long distance assaults launched a charged tachyon at light speed with enough force to shatter a dwarf star.

And topping it all off, the Unglauss began rapidly changing in facing, it's prow pointing slightly past the station, above the planet. The Shockpoint drive began charging, and the gravitic sheath started to form around it.

Ilia saw with her mind that the jump would take her within fourteen inches of the stations hull. She smiled, the blowback would ripple that station and cause significant internal damage. They would have to take several cycles to regroup before they could begin tracing her heading...
