We shall never fall! Ga transinions shall come, but we, we shall overcome!” general Eaga inspirationally spoke over the microphone. “For over a hundred years this war has raged! We have been on losing end of it for several decades, but now it has come to Verki! Verki, this planet, it has been our home for millennia! I will damned if it will ever fall into any transinions hands! You my soldiers, you are will be the transinion’s bane, from ga moment they set foot, until ga moment they retreat with their tails between their legs, if we don’t kill ‘em all before they get the chance to.” General Eaga chuckeled. “Now go! Go to your posts, and prepare for the worst fight of your lives! And when we fight, fight for Ga Empirug, fight for Thero, and fight for your families honor!”
My unit dispersed from the formation, we all knew what we had to do. We went to the armory. We all grabbed what we could carry. I grabbed a MK-II Yip-ke style pistol, a case of HE grenades, and a Guln-dar shoulder mounted laser cannon prototype. Then I went to my officer’s locker and retrieved my father’s transinion buster, a prototype laser rifle, modded with high capacity cycler, an over charged battery, and a titanium bayonet.
My son stood at the rifle rake frozen and shivering, I approached him and placed my hand on his crown. “Is it true what General Eaga said, about the battle?” he asked.
“Every word of it my son. It will be rough for you, but you will prevail, I will make sure of it.” I said, wrapping my tail around his. “Now dawn your armor, grab your gun, and let us go to Ga Krahulg, iklan.”
I stepped outside the armory, the gunboat was waiting to take my unit to the Krahulg, its crew was already there, preping it for combat, we are to be its ground team, incase anything goes awry, which knowing the impending invasion, it will. As I went to the gunboat, I looked to the sky. What I saw was devastating, the sky was on fire with a crashing ship. The ship, on of ours, was split in half and tumbling downwards, it was terrible. I couldn’t help but think what was its crew was experiencing, but that is the price all of us are willing to pay for Ga Empirug. Suddenly the blast from the ship entering the atmosphere hit. The ground rumbled, dust kicked up, the trees twisted and swayed, and I was knocked to the ground. I got up, and checked my WC, the calculated impact zone for the ship was in the ocean away form on any population zones.
I continued to the gunboat. It was waiting on a landing pad, its crew was just finishing up with loading extra munitions and supplies. I boarded the craft to find an other squad loaded too. As soon as my squad arrived we took off. There was a long silence in the ride to the Krahulg. As we neared the Krahulg base we heard an announcement over the comm, “Our fleet has been defeated, transinion invasion is eminent.” We landed at the base. The commanding officer of the base was waiting at the pad. Our two squads exited the drop ship, the other squads kratof and I bowed before him and spoke in unison as we were trained, “We stand ready for orders, iklan!”
“Rise, iklan, let us go now, they are coming soon.” the commander said, as his tail tapped our hands. We made our way to the Krahulg, It was much larger than I had imagined, I stood only just above its foot, I peered upwards, the Krahulg’s artillery piece must have fired a round larger then my body, the damage it could do… I lost myself in my thoughts of how much pure destructive power this weapon had, and how big of a chunk it would take away from the transinions.
