Beyond the Event Horizon

on Fri Dec 07, 2018 2:38 pm
*Galactic Year (GY) 3099*
The turn of the century. A time of great excitement and anticipation within the Galactic Alliance. Over the last 1,000 years, after mastering the technology to manipulate and warp the immense gravity of Black Holes turning them into an intergalactic highway in which ships can navigate through to different sectors of the galaxy via use of "Event Drive" technology. Along with the advent of Event Drive tech, came advances in cybernetics and machinery. It wasn't uncommon now for people to have multiple cybernetic enhancements or upgrades and in face an entire elite military unit known as the EDM, Event Drive Manipulators, is dedicated to the proficient usage and integration between Human and Event Drive tech. Those who have truly managed to unlock the potential of their EDM tech become Officers and take on more advanced roles and missions. Armed with their personalized mechanized combat machine known as the AIRWAR, their mission is a critical one in expanding the known universe suitable for human expansion and colonization.

*GY 2099*
Humans decided to leave Earth for the first time and decided to colonize Mars. Back then, the technological advances had turned the new colonies on Mars into modern marvels. Now the Solar System is the seat of the Citadel, an governing body made up of 9 representatives, one elected from each planet, to oversee expansion and colonization operations across the galaxy. The Citadel gave birth to the Galactic Alliance, made up of members from colonies across the Solar System who come in service to protect galactic peace between the planets, further advance science and technology, or traverse through the Black Hole Network to explore other galaxies, deep space, explore diplomatic relations and combat any potential alien threat that may arise.

So far during the 1,000 years of human expansion across the Milky Way, there has been no significant contact with life outside of our own. There have been signs and evidence left that there is more to our galaxy than currently meets the eye...

*Present Day GY3099*

The doors to the briefing room opened and shut as a slightly older man dressed in a sharply pressed Military Officer's uniform as he took his hat off as the others in the room turned to him giving him a sharp salute. Ironically all the people currently in that room had on the exact same uniform, with the same ranking on the sleeves and shoulder epaulets, except for one distinction. Where the other 3 people in the room had 4 stars on their shoulder, he had 5. This was Admiral Alexander Storm, a renown decorated war hero in his youth who served during the Outer Rim Uprising when the planets beyond the Asteroid Belt attempted to leave the inner planets in what amounted to a galactic civil war. He as motioned for the others around him to be at ease and take a seat he slowly made his way over to the far end of the table where a holographic projection of the Milky Way galaxy popped up around them "Morning Admirals. Sorry to call you all down from your respective commands today, but this meeting has been a long time coming and I'm starting to feel the pressure from the Citadel to make a decision on what our forces are going to be doing at the turn of the century."he said to them "Actually first, I'm not sure you've all met, some of you are fairly new to your posts. Allow me to take a moment to do introductions. Chief of Communications and Logistic Admiral Sara Dean, Chief of Medicine Admiral Katherine Yi, Chief of Engineering, Research and Development Admiral Jon Striker and lastly, Chief of Military Police and Explorations Admiral Viktoria Edwards. I hope you all grow accustomed to one another, you all will be spending quite a bit of time together because I'm going to announce my newest idea for the turn of the century, and you all are going to tell me what you think." Admiral Storm began as the projection expanded slightly before focusing on the center of the Milky Way

"As we all know, in the center of our galaxy is a Black Hole. The same black hole that powers our ED tech with a near endless supply of energy. Now while our early test runs have been widely successful across all dimensions, I believe it is time for us to go public with our plans for exploring other regions of the known universe and for the Eden. We didn't spend all this time perfecting technology that will allow us to cross the event horizon once and for all and access the Black Hole Network for us to keep it to ourselves forever. I think it's time we go live with the information and see how the public receives it. Who knows, there may even be more volunteers outside of the military who want to embark on the Intergalactic Stratoship Eden's maiden voyage to the Andromeda Galaxy. That's what it was like 1,000 years ago when the first colonists traveled to settle Mars....we are on the precipice of a grand undertaking. Our soldiers are trained, our machines fine tuned and our doctors readily supplied...now is the time to push humanity into the future past the limitations of our own galaxy. Now is the time to find out just what our universe, not just our galaxy, truly has in store for us. It seems to be what the Citadel wants. 8 out of 9 planets were in accordance with the vote with Jupiter being the only No vote, but they are the largest planet and always go against what everyone else is in line with any way so that was to be expected. However, while I may be an old man with delusions of grandeur I cannot embark on a military excursion of this magnitude without knowing the capabilities and readiness of my forces. You now have the floor Admirals to speak your mind freely."he said as he sat back to allow the other Admirals in his council the freedom to spoke as they saw fit with such an important decision.

Admiral Sara Dean cleared her throat and took the opportunity to speak first.  Her hair was dark brown and tied back in a tight bun with no hair out of place. Her hands neatly folded in front of her over a tablet in front door of her. “For a voyage like this, it would need to be not only well supplied, but well funded.” She said and began to tap away at her tablet. Small holographic screens that could be manipulated and tapped on began to appear from the tablet, lists and numbers appearing at rapid speed. “This would be the first voyage of its kind since the settlement of Mars. Exploring new territory and discovering any number of planets and possibly life. For a possible and functional colonization, there would have to be no less then...3000 souls aboard. Including any livestock would raise that number to 3500 to not only feed the civilian mass, but for breeding future food sources. While also keeping in mind of the possibility of finding a planet with proper flaura and Fauna that the colonists could consume.” She looked betweeen her screens and the asmiral. “Also including cargo, weaponry, medical supplies, temporary world wide housing, AIRWARS and mobile equipment, and most importantly the Cryogenic chambers to make such a voyage possible. According to my last update, the Edens construction is 87.556% complete. We have gathered the nessacry military volunteers and have acquired aforementioned livestock. All that remains is to fill the remaining civilian seats with a balanaced amount of men and women in various fields of agriculture, engineering, and science and working class.”

Admiral Storm listened to her numbers nodding his head in agreement as she rattled off figures "Excellent. If that's the case the Medical Bay on Eden will be fully stocked and capable for intergalactic travel for light years to come. Admiral Striker, as indicated Eden's 87.5% ready to go? Why aren't we at 100%?"he said with that same cool smile and firm tone as Admiral Striker pressed a button on his forearm communicator as the graphic on the hologram changed to a picture of a battleship larger than even the biggest Dreadnought-class battleship currently known by the Alliance. "Well considering we're attempting to turn a super fortress into a ship capable of traveling through black holes, it's been no easy feature, but for the damned of my Cryogenics has not been my strong suit. However we almost gotten the cryogenic chambers up to maximum efficency thanks to one Lieutenant Commander Jayden Green. She's actually going to be the Doctor in charge of the Medical Bay, I couldn't think of anyone else more competent to take charge wouldn't you say, Kat?" he asked getting a corresponding nod from Admiral Yi "Absolutely, she's a fantastic doctor and her cryogenic knowledge will go a long way in preserving the lives of all personnel as they travel through dark space."

Admiral Storm nodded his head at there words as he stared at the holographic of the ship "The Eden....so aptly named as the garden that will host human life across the universe. It is time....Admirals Dean and Edwards are taking the lead on this. I'll be relying on the two of you heavily until Admiral Striker ensures that ship is out of our galaxy and headed into another one. Don't let me down, humanity is relying on you all."he said giving his council of Admirals a salute which they sharply returned

*I CANT BELIEVE I WAS CHOSEN!* was the thought echoing around a young man's head as he stood on the peer in front of the Eden, being fully loaded with final ordanences and last minute preparations being taken. This was Commander Lyon, one of the youngest decorated war heroes and Ace pilots out of the AIRWAR Military Academy. Lyon was one of the military's first wave of experimental tests in developing soldiers fully integrated with ED and AIRWAR tech from a young age. Lyon's father was a AIRWAR fighter who died in during a rescue mission and his mother died in childbirth, leaving him a ward of the military. Though taken in by them, he has been promoted through the ranks through his natural talent and abilities his drive and ambition has always left others desiring more from him. "I bet this was Captain Storm's doing. She's always pushing me to be like her Dad...but I'm my own person damn it."he said swinging his fist out only to have it caught by a woman with long purple hair wearing a long trench over her military uniform as the male paled slightly "C-Captain Storm, how long were you standing there?"he gulped as he tried to pull his fist back from her as hard as he could but her wrist didn't budge an inch as her eyes fixed on the blue haired man before her

"Oh just long enough to hear you bitching and moaning again. I'm not trying to make you like my father Kai, you'll never end up being the man he was."said Captain Eluna Storm. Widely regarded as the "toughest Bitch in the Fleet", Admiral's Storm daughter had a look and reputation known to shake fear into even the toughest fighters core. "But I actually had no say in the decision making process for who the Commander of the Strike Team and my second-in-command would be this time. Admiral Edwards hand chose all of the key officials on Eden. Whatever is written in your record must have really rubbed her the right way. Plus I'm sure having a dead war hero father, being mentored by someone as fabulous as myself, and having decent flight scores probably helped, so you're welcome for that kid. Don't let me down, and don't get in my way."she said as she finally let his wrist go as he pulled it back rubbing it gently "God you're tough, it's no wonder you're still not married"he said as she shot him a look as she swung at him as he dodged with a laugh before rushing down the pier heading onto the ship in awe as Storm appeared behind him again "Isn't it gorgeous? C'mon, we have our meeting with the Engineer and Medic before we get ready for take off, all the civilians and non-essential military personnel have already been put in their cryo-pods and the chambers have been activated. Once we give the green light, the maiden voyage of the Eden will be a-go"she said as Commander Lyon nodded still trying to reel it all in. It was just a year ago today that the announcement was made across the Milky Way that the Galactic Alliance would be recruiting for humanity's first mission to travel into another galaxy and now, here they were, on the Eve of the first voyage.

As Commander Lyon and Captain Storm walked through different halls they finally came to a large conference room as the door phased open for them "At ease everyone, don't salute me every time I walk through the door I'm not that kind of stickler for the rules"she said waving her hand "Everyone I'd like you to meet our new Commander who'll be taking over head of the Exploration's Strike Team, Kai Lyon, Commander Lyon, meet your new Crew..."she said waving her hand to introduce them

In the room were the best AIRWAR Pilots the Fleet had to offer for this mission. The first one to step up was girl with the Peach colored hair. “Vice Strike Commander Ezra Lee. Pilot of Alpha Blue.” She said. Alpha blue was a Lion AIRWAR Mech that was fitted with blasters in the mouth and tail as well as one larger on on its back.

“Tristan Daniels. Pilot of Valkyrie Skies.” His was a humanoid mech armed with plasma blade and wings that could reach incredible speeds. He held the record for fastest land to space launch.

“Sheria Johnson. Pilot of Dancers June.” Hers was another animal based mech. This time it was a Wolf styled one with no visible means of weaponry but was told to be designed for stealth missions.
