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.
Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.
Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.
This was the start of a long and bitter series of invasions. We continued to push into transinion ga Va, in total we conquered 5 worlds before reaching Abeo Ter. Abeo Ter is the home to a species called the Loku. They are closer to our supreme form, they did not use the magic of the Transinions, and they used crafts similar to our own. But they had allied themselves with the accursed Transinions, so were our blood enemies. The invasion lasted years, with constant battle, neither side gaining much, Loku fleets coming to aid their home world, and our fleets constantly arriving. The transinions did not show for the first three years, then a massive fleet arrived, it was centered around a particularly gigantic ship. It was some kind of Loku-Transinion hybrid ship with Transinion magic, but of Loku construct. At the nose of the craft, two horns that could conjure magic so strong, it could destroy our largest ship, at the time, in a single bolt. From the two horns it was cylindrical body, with four other cylindrical satellites, each attached by four beams to the body. The bulk transinion fleet engaged our fleet, while the massive craft, 3 transinion dreadnaughts, and 4 transinion carriers landed on Abeo Ter, well the massive craft landed, the transinion dreadnaughts each dropped 12 city siege units, terrifying scorpion like behemoth tanks, with a single one being able to besiege a largely populated city. The carriers broke up, and formed hoards of transinion fighters, and ground units to fill the gaps between the city siege units. The dreadnaughts then rejoined the battle in ga Va. Our brave and gallant soldiers on Abeo Ter held for two months before finally being killed off.
From there the transinions began reinvading our space. They first took their old colonies from us, then they began sweeping around Thero to our outer colonies. They eventually reached Verki. This is where my story begins.
I finally began writing again, but this time from a different angle, instead of as a Transinion i am creating a short story through the eyes of a Theronine soldier. This initial piece is the introduction to the era, and will be followed be an invasion, and idk what it will develop into yet! Who knows
My name is Krar-tol ga uld. I am a Thero-krar of the Theronine race, in the service of the eight division of my races grand army on the world of Verki. We defend the Aug-Therotof of Balta-Tolik According the transinion calendar their year is 541YD, my race’s date is 1231, in the era of expansion.
My species is divided into two opposing classes, Thero-krar and Thero-uld. During puberty in my species we develop an unquenchable taste for sand. After about four months of consuming sand we fall into a month long hibernation in which we metamorphosis into wither the krar or uld. If we consumed more titanium in the sand we become krar, the krar have titanium infused bones with the ability to rapidly heal smaller wounds like a bullet hole. We become uld if we consume more silicon in the sand, the uld have the ability to remember every detail of their lives, every word in a book, every face in a crowd, every smell in a market, because their brains act almost like computers.
Our species had been steadily growing throughout ga Va during the age of expansion. The era began when our first colony was established on another world. This first colony was in our own solar system, but it proved that ga Va was no match for us. For ages before Raug-Empirug was founded we feared ga Va. Because it was home to the Kalb-nine, demons that came to Thero to kill and unslave us, but mysteriously vanished. When Raug-Empirug came about, it stopped the teaching of the nonsense. Some say that there was archeological evidence of the Kalb-nine, but if so it was destroyed when the Raug-Empirug cleansed all the false history. After two hundred years we slipped the bonds of our solar system and established a colony here on Verki. This was possible because of a new technology we call dark jump, that allowed us to travel faster than light itself! In the present we call over 50 worlds our home, but this is changing. A hundred years ago the wretched transinions declared war on us! At first they began entering our ga Va, this initially wasn’t bad. But then they found Thero, our lifeblood! We tried to contact them using radios, but they completely ignored our attempts and they set down on Thero. We immediately destroyed them, they had transgressed enough. We immediately sent a fleet from where they came. They had a small colony. My father was a therotof, a battle leader. His unit was one of the first the attack their colony. They quickly overpowered the transinons, but they had signaled for reinforcements. My father says that it was like the air ripped apart, and created a portal to another world. He said that beyond the portal was a lush jungle from which an army of transinions appeared. He said they used swords and magic! They were able to jump 40 yards in a single leap, they could morph together into flying beasts to control the skies and their magic would suck the heat from you through our shields! The ensuing battle was horrendous but we prevailed! Never backing down, we eventually pushed them back through their portal. In the end my father’s unit had only 8 remaining men, and the fleet had been demolished to two remaining ships.
