The Armor Wars


(Long post)


The moon Titan, in orbit of the Gas Giant Saturn which at the moment was in its decade long orbit on the dark side of the planet, a massive war was being waged. The force known as Black Locusts, half machine, half organic beings numbering in the millions, with creatures acting as ships the size of fighters to giant battleships and motherships was in an intense battle with the powerful pirate ship The Arcadia.

Queen Emeraldas sat in her captain’s chair watching the battle on the view screen as her ship vibrated from the attack being waged. Her stoic face kept a cool, calm demeanor as her crew were running frantic.

“Ma’am! Armor integrity at 73.5% and falling! It’s being destroyed quicker than we can keep up with repairs! Cannons 2 and 6 are off line, your order ma’am?” Her helmswoman, enia, a green skinned humanoid with black eyes and small antennae said.

“Full stop, turn 180 degrees and concentrate fire on the mother ship.” She said and spun the wheel 180 degrees. The pirate ship Arcadia turned and every laser cannon, plasma cannon, rail gun and rocket launcher on the ship charged up even as the ship continued to shake.

She stood up and pointed at the mother ship on her view screen. “Fire.”

The blast shot through space like a stream of powerful energy blasts numbering in the hundreds as all the weapons fired at once. Enemy creatures swarming would be incinerated instantly as others had massive holes punched through them from the rail gun and rockets. The massive energy beam slammed into the alien mothership, causing it to smoke and begin to fall towards the moon of Titan.

“Direct hit! 46% of enemy fleet was decimated in that attack!” she said.

She sat back down and looked at the status report.

Hull Breach on 7th level, aft section, enemy boarding party is engaged with our men and we’re winning.

Armor at 61% but now regenerating.

Weapons bank on fore section damaged, repairs under way.

The bio organic A.I. said

“Alright, let’s prepare to head to Titan, prepare boarding party and-“ BOOM! The ship was rocked violently back and forth and suddenly everything went dead. Artifical gravity even cut off. Then more violent explosions rocked the ship before the backup generators kicked on.

“Ma’am! We have a problem! Some kind of strange… energy beam just hit the ship from the surface of Titan! It’s pulling us down to the planet.”

She frowned. “Crew scatter, turn over control to me. Enia. Go to earth, you’ll find help there. They CANNOT get the Arcadia…”

 Her first officer nodded and then ran for an escape pod as dozens flew out from the ship in all directions, with Enia’s heading for Earth…

Queen Emeralda grinned then took the helm, her golden, brown eyes glimmered brightly as she used her connection to the ship to create a energy barrier, which had the side effect of putting her in stasis with the ship which now drifted into Saturn’s atmosphere, trying to hide for now.

Enia’s escape pod flew through the solar system, flying towards Earth, Xera’s ship would most likely pick up the signal, which is where it was heading for, that is until one of the techno-organic creatures jumped on the pod, tampering with it. The ship would go into a tail spin, its active cammo flickering in and out until it plunged through earth’s atmosphere and landed at the home that Marie, AKA Ebon Dynamo called home from time to time.

People would begin to run and scatter as the ships cammo failed and the creature, which looked like something out of Starcraft would try to tear the ship in half to get to its inhabitant.

Re: The Armor Wars


Marie aka Ebon Dynamo grinned widely as she completed the finishing touches on her armor upgrade. The red and gold armor sparkled as the helm came to life, the alien A.I. would give her a rundown. “So kiddo… We have all systems looking to be in good shape. Flight stabilizers are still off by .5%, we need to figure out where the disparity comes from. Weapons systems are still in development, but I have issues with you using your energy abilities in such a way while trying to power your armor. It could put a drain on your body and render you unconscious…”

“I know, but if I’m to be effective on Carol’s team I need more weapons than the shield. Energy blasts sounds like the best idea to me. Especially since its explosive.” Marie replied.

Suddenly alarms blared around the orphanage, alarms she had set up originally to capture incoming threats. “What we got?” she asked.

“An unknown craft from deep space is about to crash into the backyard.” The A.I. said. “Alright, let’s get to it then!” She said and the armor formed around her body, with the shield coming into view last. She grinned widely beneath her helm as her viewscreen and HUD appeared, followed by her shield and she took off from her work shed just in time to see the pod crash into a giant crater, and some alien, bug thing trying to get inside.

“Hey, UGLY! Back off!” she said, only to see the creature growl, roaring, then jump off the pod to head towards her.

“oh crap!”

Re: The Armor Wars


“GENIE, how are the booster modules coming along for the Dreadwraithe II?” Xera asked as she floated in zero gravity, her massive varia fighter mecha floating in front of her while connected to various diagnostic devices.

Inside of her cruiser, which orbited Earth in stealth, she constantly worked on repairing and upgrading her fighter, preparing for a possible return of any number of alien threats, such as the pirate princess, or any number of bounty hunters.

“boss, I am picking up a distress signal, coming from a distress pod which has now fallen to earth. The Black Locusts energy signature has been detected on this pod…”

Xera frowned, floating to the cockpit of her varia fighter and entering it. The massive fighter ship came to life and disconnected from the diagnostic tools as the garage bay doors opened. “Let’s go!” the fighter transformed into a fighter jet and took off towards the signal, heading for earth as it ripped through the atmosphere.

Re: The Armor Wars


As the creature ripped into the escape pod it was distracted by…

“A human in armor.. Karprith (Her native language curse word).” She kicked out the escape hatch door and grabbed the smart laser pistol she had jumped out the pod. As the creature rushed Ebon, she’d fire several dozen blasts at the techno organic beast, making it roar out in anger but also getting its attention.

“RAWWWRRRRR!” it charged her now and she took off, leading it away from the human kids and other staffers of the orphanage. As she ran she ducked under trees and jumped over benches, the creature would just barrel through them. She ran into Ebon’s shed and shot the lights out, making it dark.

Not only a few more seconds later it busted through the door an growled as it looked around carefully, searching for Enia. Its claws scampered across the hard ground of the shed as it searched for her. She would change the setting on her smart laser pistol, letting it generate its full blast then would step out the shadows.

“Hey ugly!”

It turned, only to get shot directly in the chest and sent flying out the shed, rolling end over end until it came to a halt in the middle of the field. She stepped out the shed as it began to rise to its feet, the large plasma burn on its chest bubbling up.

“Alright, lets finish this!”

Re: The Armor Wars


 As the creature had jumped on her she used her shield to keep it at bay. It was strong, VERY strong, so much so it was beginning to weigh her down! “kiddo,” The A.I. said. “rerouting power to thrusters and shield integrity.”

“Thanks!” She said as it clawed her shield, scraping it with its claws. She didn’t know what to do… But luckily she had help. The laser blast struck its back, knocking it off her. She breathed a sigh of relief then would look around at the back of the orphanage. People were panicking and running in all directions. They were scared… “ALRIGHT!” she shouted and flew down, using her shield to deflect debris before they hit a child. “Emily, get into the church now alright! Get your friends and go.” She said and the young girl nodded, running off.

“Hey! Don’t wreck my shack!” she shouted, watching as the creature suddenly rolled out the shed and stood up, frowning deeply and snarling.

Re: The Armor Wars


“How close are we GENIE?!”

Her varia fighter streaked through the atmosphere towards the church, as she entered U.S. Airspace, two F-35 raptors flew beside her. “Ma’am, we’re going to need to escort you to an air force base,” They said on her radio.

“Sorry, don’t have time to deal with your human politics, I’ll be in touch.” She flicked a switch and the fighter suddenly boosted forward at tremendous speed, leaving the raptors in her dust.

“Holy smokes!” one of the other pilots said.

She’d punch it now, streaking towards Metropolis and then slow herself down as she approached the church. “We have the creature boss.” Genie said. “It’s engaged with the being that sent the distress signal. Your orders?”

She smirked, and as they came to the church, the fighter in mid air would transform with a whirling of metal and straining of materials as it changed into a humanoid walker type of mecha. As it did the massive, 51foot tall mech’s foot landed on the creature, smashing it beneath its heel.

“I picked up your distress signal.” Xera’s voice said through her varia mech. “What’s going on?”

Re: The Armor Wars


She watched as the giant mech stepped on the creature and it squirmed, squealed as its acidic blood ate through the ground before it finally stopped moving. She would fall to a knee, her green antennae twitching slightly as she sighed.

“Rgwonwena rgho rhonqwoeqnrg...” She blinked, then pressed a button on the collar of her uniform. “There, sorry. I forget this world does not have the universal translation devices in the city and building streets.” She said as she reached to her side and would use a strange, tri-tipped looking metallic device to begin to heal her wounds.

“Yes... I come for aide. The Arcadia is in danger, and as such so is this world. The Black Scourge is in this system, and if they accumulate the Arcadia they will overrun this world and there will be NOTHING left but ashes.” She said.

“So I come for aide... I picked up the signal of a former Senate ship, and come hoping for help... Alas it seems as if I was right judging by your varia class fighter.” She said looking at the mecha, then to the armored girl. “And you, thank you for coming to my aide... although I fear you may be in over your head.”

Meanwhile, on the moon Titan...

The Black Scourge began to repair their mothership from the extensive damage done to it by the Arcadia. The Queen, Mrxaira, sat on her throne, telepathically communicating with all her lessers as they were called.

“The escape pod fled to the 3rd planet from the sun. She seeks help.” she said to her elite guard. “Go there, find her and whoever she has found for help and eliminate them... but remember to be silent... we cannot tip our hand on invasion yet.”

 “Oh.”

“My.”

“God.”

The giant mecha which just arrived was something she only DREAMED of. It was marvelous and futuristic, something that she never imagined being able to see, let alone even dream. She would fly around the 50 foot tall mech and marvel at its structure.

“This is a Varia class fighter, kiddo. I have not seen one in a hundred years. It is state of the art and completely advanced.” Her Alien A.I. said as she tried to run scans on it for its energy source, material make up and anything else about it.

“There are several unknown materials in this mech, what is it made of exactly? And I’m picking up fusion energy readings but also something else… This thing is AMAZING!!!” she said. “I’ll definitely go if I get to see more tech like this!”

Re: The Armor Wars


Xera walked to the green skinned woman and frowned at what she said. She'd heard of them, and in the former Trans Galatic Senate she'd heard of entire galaxies lost to said creatures, turning them into fuel and energy for what? Who knows really.

So the fact they are now HERE and so close to Earth well...

“So the legendary Arcadia is stranded on Titan huh? You know how many years my former subordinates spent searching for that ship and its crew? And how many of my former colleagues she put into the stars?” She frowned lightly, but would only sigh as this was something more serious than her own problems.

“Alright, we head to Titan. Your escape Pod can't fly so I will carry it to my cruiser. “You.” she looked ot Marie, who was oogling her varia fighter. “Can your armor take you into space? Either way you come with us since you've been marked by them. If you can't fly into space, my Varia fighter can hold a crew of 6 total, so you both will fit comfortably.”
