The Kote'aran, Justice-class Dreadnought

Time: Unknown
Date: Unknown
Location: Unknown

Crew: Admiral Noll, three lieutenants, 500 junior officers, 1000 ncos, 50,000 clones, 10,000 pilots, 40 commandos, 4560 turret operators.

Armament: 1 -Redacted-,  500 heavy dual-turbolaser batteries,1000 medium dual-turbolaser batteries, 3000 point-defense batteries, 10 tractor-beam projectors, 50 proton torpedo tubes,

Compliment: 1000 Theta-class Light Attack craft, 3000 Gamma-class Heavy fighters,  5000 Beta-class bombers, 800 Alpha-class Interceptors, 200 Delta-class Troop transports.

Equipment: Long-range Tracking antenna,  Type-15 Navigation system, Mk 30 energy shields, Rest is classified.
Cause of Accident: Reactors 13-33 disabled
Damage Report: Decks 37-38 lost life support, Primary engines disabled

Projected course: Impact with planet
Warning: Impact predicted, attempt to slow speed as soon as possible

 

 The Kote'aran, a Justice-class dreadnought, passed over the moon of the small blue planet, which many assumed was Orbis III, however, they could not be further from the truth. This planet was, in many ways, an alternate Orbis, one where many nations that collapsed rose afterwards. Admiral Vruz Noll, the commander of the vessel, attempted to contact Chernigovan Orbital Command in an attempt to save the crew.

 "This is Admiral Vruz Noll of the 2nd Imperial Armada speaking. We have lost all power to primary engines following a power surge that disabled Primary Reactors 13-33. We are on an impact course with the planet and request immediate assistance from anyone who can hear this. Our projected time until impact is twelve hours. This message will repeat until we are either rescued or help arrives. Admiral Noll out." the admiral said over a holo-transmitter. Slowly, he walked towards the front of the bridge and let out a sigh. "I don't think we are in the Orbis system. The sector is usually more active. Here's hoping that we can reestablish communications with the military." the admiral said to himself before retiring to his quarters. And so, the ship drifted ever closer towards the planet below. If it were to hit the planet with a high speed, it could wipe out all life in a 10,000 km radius, simply due to it's reactors that were still online.

Kawaikini Dreadnought Kaho'olawe

 

The realm is unfamiliar and hostile.

 

Not much time has passed since the gods graced Kawaikini's children and saved them from oblivion. Upon this world of green fields and blue skies they brought them - their fleets and their armies - so that they could build anew. And so it was good. The Pacific, vast and unyielding, has become their playground, and civilization is slated to be crafted out of its fruitful extent. But while Kawaikini busy themselves with rebuilding upon the myriad atolls and red-and-green capped peaks of larger islands, trouble from the fabric once more stirs. A message in a foreign tongue plays for them on a strange channel...

 

"This is Admiral Vruz Noll of the 2nd Imperial Armada speaking. We have lost all power to primary engines following a power surge that disabled primary reactors 13-33. We are on an impact course with the planet and request immediate assistance from anyone who can hear this. Our projected time until impact is twelve hours. This message will repeat until we are either rescued or help arrives. Admiral Noll out."

 

We are picking up a signal, Pauahi.

 

Pauahi walks from the wheel and steps down to the communications station. Play the communique again, he orders.

 

And so the communique is played again but once more nothing can be deciphered. Pauahi frowns. Can you trace its origin? Pauahi questions. 

 

Yes, Pauahi, the one in control of communications - Akeliela - says in reply. Nobs and dials are turned with haste and notes are jotted down. Before long Akeliela is done and has the information. The message is coming from here, Akeliela says and points to a position in the void. From this ship. Scans indicate the ships seems to be in a considerable state of distress.

 

We shall intercept them then here, claims Pauahi from behind the wheel of his ship. He eyes the void through the tiny glass windows that dot his wheelhouse and makes good on his claim; gargantuan thrusters go to work - thrumming with life - as they push the massive outrigger spaceship out and away from the gravity well of Earth and towards the incoming vessel. A message is sent out to them in reply in the high tongue of the Kawaikini..:

 

"Your vessel appears to be in distress and threatens our holdings with its projected course. Respond and explain or soon be removed."

Amenrian Battleship Badai Biru

 

"Sir, visual contact established with foreign dreadnought. Origin unknown. What are your next orders, Sir?"

 

"Use the suspension beam to stop it from hitting the ground. Then, we'll take them back to our base, let's see if we can make friends with these guys."

 

Admiral "Maelstrom" Andi Saifudin Mappanganro speaks calmly as he contacts the dying ship whilst lifting some weights.

 

"Foreign ship, you are within combat range of Imperial Amenrian Battleship Badai Biru, this awesome baby in front of you. That gives me the right to do this. Don't worry though, we're not going to hurt you, for now. How about we have a little talk and we'll take you back for some repairs?"

 

Badai Biru fires a beam towards the foreign ship, stopping its movement in midair, leaving it unharmed further

 

"So tell me, what's your story?" says the Admiral, as he puts down his weights

The Kote'aran, Justice-class dreadnought

 

 The bridge was filled with noise as the crew attempted to change the course of the ship. As the ship closed in towards the planet, a message was received in a foreign language. Even Admiral Noll, who had served in the Chernigovan-Sith War, was concerned.

 "Can any of you attempt to translate it?" Admiral Noll asked with concern.

 "Sir, I can handle it." one of the clones replied before putting the message into one of the many computers on the ship. "Okay, It should be done, sir." the officer said. Suddenly, a hologram appeared, but the image was blurred so they couldn't really see the creature that said it.

 "Your vessel appears to be in distress and threatens our holdings with it's projected course. Respond and explain or be removed." the creature said with a slight accent, one which none of the crew recognized.

 "Tell them that our projected landing site is somewhere in what looks to be... Eastern Europe." Admiral Noll ordered to one of the officers.

 "Sir yes sir!" one of the clones responded before putting the message in. It said the following: "This is Admiral Noll of the Kote'aran, we are projected to land somewhere in Eastern Europe as of this moment. Ple-" he stopped. "Sir! We have made contact with another ship!" He yelled.
 "It seems we are far from alone here..." Admiral Noll said to himself. "Alright, I will contact them." he said before stepping onto a holopad in the center of the room. "This is Admiral Noll of the Second Imperial Armada, under orders from His Glorious Majesty, Immortal Master and Protector of Chernigov, Alexei Lysenko. Our ship, the Kote'aran, has sustained damage to Primary reactors 13-33 during a routine jump from the CH-1 Universe to PW-1, leaving us in this state. Our Primary engines have been disabled, while Decks 37 and 38 have lost life support. Thankfully, should any ship attack us, our large compliment of ships are still active, while our weapons systems, including our- Well, I can't really say. It is a bit of a secret." Admiral Noll said over the holopad before awaiting a response.

The Kote'aran, Justice-class dreadnought

13 hours since arrival

 

 Admiral Noll paced around the bridge, his face showing concern with the current situation. The tractor beam had worked, but something was off about it. Suddenly, a bright flash appeared off of the port side of the ship. Slowly, a ship exited the bright flash, it's design unmistakable. It was Parjai'tracyn, or at least, what remained of it. As it slowly passed beyond the rift, debris from the ship floated away. It was clear that something had happened to the ship while it jumped to wherever they were. Suddenly, the tractor-beam that had held the ship failed, and the ship began to float towards the planet below. Thankfully, while the tractor beam was still active, engineers aboard the vessel were able to repair Reactors 13-30, but unfortunately, the final three were unable to be fixed. An officer quickly walked up to the admiral to give advice.

 "Sir, with all due respect, we should send a salvage team to the Parjai'tracyn's wreckage and try to figure out what happened." the officer said.

 "Perhaps... But maybe it would be better to first initiate one of our tractor beams in order to keep it from hitting the planet." Admiral Noll replied. "Alright, send a shuttle to investigate what happened." he added. "I will have someone work on the tractor beam." he finished.

 "Yes sir, right away sir." the officer said before heading to the hangar, where a shuttle and a team of clones would be waiting. Upon reaching the hangar, he saw a small squad of soldiers waiting for him. Quickly, he walked towards them to give them their orders. "Men! We have arrived in a new universe, one which has yet to be charted by our nation. As you may know, our ship, the Kote'aran, was damaged while investigating this new universe. We were followed by the vessel known as the 'Parjai'tracyn'. That ship only just arrived, but it was destroyed either upon entry into this system, or while in transit. Hence, you are under orders to recon the ship, attempt to find any survivors, and bring back orders, technical readouts, etc etc... Dismissed!" the officer said before the squad boarded the shuttle that would take them to the stricken ship.

 

The Parjai'tracyn, Vengeance-class Battlecruiser

14 hours since arrival

 

 Quickly, the shuttle approached the stricken battlecruiser, which had lost all power save for the bridge. Quickly, the doors of the shuttle opened, allowing the clones to exit the vehicle. After a short time outside of the spacecraft, the squad boarded the Parjai'tracyn, where they found a grim sight. The ship had been ripped apart, anyone aboard the ship did not survive.

 "This isn't good..." one of the clones said.

 "Yeah, this is pretty bad." another one said. Slowly, the clone walked over to one of the computers to figure out what happened. "Lets see here... Primary cause of ship destruction... reactor overload... Remaining crew... none." he said.

 "Okay, now that we know we are alone, lets try to see if our orders were left intact." the commander of the clones said. Slowly, the squad advanced through the ship towards the bridge, which was the last area that was fully powered.As they approached the bridge, the ship started to fall apart from the damage sustained. As the final clone entered the bridge, it separated from the rest of the ship, causing the remaining part of the ship to go into low power mode.

 "Well, that was close. I guess we need to be more careful." the clone said as he walked up to a computer in the center of the room. "Okay, lets see here... Orders... Where are the orders... Ah! There they are. Lets see here..." the clone said as he turned on a hologram that would show the message.

 "Admiral Noll, this is Grand Moff Vaiken. As you know, we have reported temporal instability in the PW-1 universe, more specifically, temporal instability centered around the Orbis system. Your orders are to investigate these temporal instabilities, recon the newly discovered universe, establish a colony on this alternate version of Orbis, and report back your findings. We hope that you and the crews of both the Kote'aran and the Parjai'tracyn will arrive safely, but if something is to happen, please attempt to contact us as soon as possible. Grand Moff Vaiken, out." the hologram said. Immediately afterwards, the clone transferred the message to a small holopad in order to return it to the Kote'aran.

 "Shuttle 36, this is Gamma squad, requesting transport back to the Kote'aran, over." the commander said over a hologram to the shuttle's pilot.

 "Roger that Gamma, we are inbound for your position." the pilot replied.

 "Please make it quick, the ship wont last much longer." the commander replied. "I don't think we will be able to prevent it from hitting the planet for much longer..." he added.

 "Roger that Gamma, we are almost there." the pilot replied as the shuttle approached the wreckage. After a few minutes waiting, the crew boarded the shuttle that took them back to the Kote'aran. Immediately afterwards, the tractor beam was disabled as it was draining energy for the reactors, and the Parjai'tracyn, or, at least, what remained of it, floated towards the planet.

Kaho'olawe

 

The swift engines of the dreadnought Kaho'olawe have brought her closer to the offending newcomers, but by the time their arrival is made it seems all is under control. A message has been received from them but not much can be garnered from the doltish tongue. Sensors and scans indicate they are of no threat to the Kawaikini now, at least from their own inability to control their descent.  With no overt threats, the Kaho'olawe banks away and begins to shadow the strange vessel at distance. The Amenrian warship too is noticed but no actions are taken against it.

 

It appears there is another ship here as well, sensors confirm, other than these two warships. But it appears to be terrible state.

 

Pauahi is quick to respond: What is it doing?

 

Crashing, sensors says.

 

Will it land in our territory? Pauahi asks.

 

Its descent is not stable. I cannot tell, sensors says in return. 

 

Train batteries on it, Pauahi orders. And fire.

 

Large blister-turrets turn and face the floating wreck of the newest ship. Blindingly hot slagshot erupts forth from the many barrels and heads for the destroyed warship. Pauahi hopes to break it up before it crashes into the world below.

Sol System, PW-2

 

 Quickly, the shuttle known as the "Lucky '38" exited the Parjai'tracyn as shots from a nearby vessel tore into it's hull. As the alien ship fired upon the stricken battlecruiser, one of the shots hit the shuttle, causing one of the engines to burst into flame. 

 "This is Shuttle 38, we are under attack! I repeat, we are under attack!" the pilot of the shuttle yelled over his commlink.

 "Shuttle 38, we read you loud and clear. We are sending a fighter escort immediately. Please stand by." an officer replied. "All hands to battle-stations! Repeat, all hands to battle-stations! Launch ten heavy fighters immediately!" the officer yelled over the ships commlink. Upon hearing this, several pilots boarded their shuttles and headed out to assist the shuttle which was carrying vital information. At the same time, the auto-defense turrets were armed as alarms sounded around the ship. Within a few minutes, the shuttle arrived on the Kote'aran, where a ground crew was waiting to repair the shuttle. Almost immediately, however, an officer walked up to the leader of the squad and requested the data to be handed over. Meanwhile, on the bridge, Admiral Noll assessed the situation. It was in this time that he decided to send a message to the vessel which had attacked the stricken battlecruiser. Quickly, he walked over to a holotransmitter to give the message.

"Ibic cuyir admiral noll be te sol'yc imperial armada. Bic has olaror at ner Ke'sush' ibac gar ganar ru'ram'or a shuk'la battlecruiser. While bic cuyir true ibac vi ganar lost gaan'arir be te vessel, bic cuyir su cuun jurisdiction. Sha te adla ca'nara, gar ganar caused damage at solus be cuun vessels, endangered te lives be cuun verde, caused te gebi destruction be vital data, bal be course, disturbed te final udes be countless verde, officers, engineers, bal pilots. Bid Gedet'ye, refrain teh attacking mhi, bal vi Kelir not ganar at resort at ashi methods. (This is Admiral Noll of the first Imperial Armada. It has come to my attention that you have attacked a damaged battlecruiser. While it is true that we have lost control of the vessel, it is still our property. At the same time, you have caused damage to one of our vessels, endangered the lives of our soldiers, caused the near destruction of vital data, and of course, disturbed the final rest of countless soldiers, officers, engineers, and pilots. So please, refrain from attacking us, and we will not have to resort to other methods.)." Admiral Noll said over the hologram before awaiting a response. However, something was off about the area. The entire ship shook, the star burned black, and a voice that hardly anyone had heard before spoke. 

 "Admiral Noll... Commander Pauahi... Neither of you fully grasp the situation, do you. There will come a moment when you will both find yourselves under attack, not by one another, but by a force that neither of you can hope to face alone. Therefore, both of you should work together, at least, until both of our nations have fully settled on this world. Now, I must take care of one minor issue... The Parjai'tracyn." the voice in a tone which did not carry emotion in any form. Quickly, Admiral Noll kneeled and asked a question.

 "But... my lord, how might you deal with this vessel? We have tried everything!" the admiral said. Alexei laughed at what he just been said and only gave a vague reply.

 "You presume limits to my power... There are none." Alexei said without emotion. Suddenly, the Parjai'tracyn started to turn to ash. The crew of any vessel in the vicinity could hear what sounded like a continuous, rolling thunder, while the ships around it shook. After the ship disintegrated, Alexei's presence left the system, and the star went back to it's normal coloration.

Kaho'olawe

 

"Ibic cuyir admiral noll be te sol'yc imperial armada. Bic has olaror at ner Ke'sush' ibac gar ganar ru'ram'or a shuk'la battlecruiser.

This tongue... Is the same as that of before, the communications operator notes. The obvious is... Obvious.

 

Send the information to our capital, Pauahi orders. There they can begin the translation process.

 

The communications operator nods and does as Pauahi asks. Other things though are now afoot; the slagshots rain down upon the hull but in the void the very star of the system grows dark and cloudy and a voice rings out for all the Kawaikini to hear:

 

"Admiral Noll... Commander Pauahi... Neither of you fully grasp the situation, do you. There will come a moment when you will both find yourselves under attack, not by one another, but by a force that neither of you can hope to face alone. Therefore, both of you should work together, at least, until both of our nations have fully settled on this world. Now, I must take care of one minor issue... The Parjai'tracyn."

 

For once they are filled with understanding. And as they gaze upon the dark star they can only wonder what the heavens have in store.

 

The ship... It's turning to... Ash, calls the sensors operator Kainoa.

 

The guns of the Kaho'olawe fall silent one by one as their target disappears before them.

 

Let's head back, Pauahi says with a turn of the ship's wheel. The vast Kaho'olawe turns her bows even further away from the newcomers than they already are and a sudden spike in energy signatures betrays her new course of action.

The Kote'aran, Sol System, PW-2

 

 

 The bridge was filled with noise once more as officers ran the many basic functions of the ship. In the center of the bridge, Admiral Noll, as well as a group of officers, stood around a holotransmitter, upon which played the message that was originally supposed to arrive with the Parjai'tracyn before it was destroyed. The message, which was from Grand Moff Odile Vaiken, explained where they were exactly, how it came into existence, why they were there, and of course, what they were to do upon arrival. Upon finishing the message, Admiral Noll immediately attempted to contact Grand Moff Vaiken in order to confirm that they had arrived.

 "Grand Moff Vaiken, this is Admiral Noll, we have arrived in PW-2." Admiral Noll said after turning on a holotransmitter.

 "Very good, Admiral Noll... or should I say Grand Admiral Noll." Vaiken replied, causing Noll's face to go blank.

 "G-g-grand Admiral? Since when was I promoted? Better yet, why?" Noll asked.

"Since today, of course. Henceforth, you are no longer Admiral Noll of the 2nd Imperial Armada. Instead, you are, with the backing of both the council of Grand Admirals and the council of Grand Moffs, Grand Admiral Noll, commander of the 1st Expeditionary fleet, and governor of the Imperial Colony of Evaar'la Vercopa." Vaiken declared.

 "Thank you, sir, but I must ask, what is this Expeditionary fleet you speak of? We lost our only ship besides the one I stand on right now."  Noll replied.

 "That, my friend, has already been dealt with. Good luck to you, Governor Noll." Vaiken said before the hologram turned off. Noll stood in place for a few moments, thinking over what had occured, however, he was quickly interrupted.

 "Sir! Several heat signatures emerging from inter-universal space!" an officer yelled. Suddenly, dark clouds of dust appeared to both sides of the vessel, with lightning appearing inside them. Slowly, ten ships around the size of a Vengeance-class battlecruiser, as well as several smaller ships, presumably colony ships, left the clouds, which disappeared after they had safely exited.

 "Well, here is our fleet." Governor Noll said with a smile.

The Kote'aran

 

 Slowly, Governor Noll walked to the front of the bridge, his medals and white uniform showing his rank as Grand Admiral. As he approached the front of the bridge, he pulled out a personal holopad and turned it on so the commanders of the rest of the fleet could hear his orders.

 "Attention to all commanders of the 1st Expeditionary fleet. This is Governor Vruz Noll speaking. Your orders are as follows: Construction ships 1-3, you will begin construction of a spaceport over the planet, while the Shuk'orok will protect you. Colony ships 1-7, you will land on the planet and establish a base of operations. You will be escorted by the Dha'kot, the Parjai'tor, and of course, the Kote'aran. Our ship will fly into the upper atmosphere of the planet, where we will launch fighters and transports to the planet's surface. Once you are on the planet's surface, your orders will be simple: Find a suitable location for a colony, clear the land, and build the colony. With that said, you are clear to begin your mission." Governor Noll said over the hologram before walking over to the back of the bridge in order to find a location for the colony.

 "Sir, we believe that the location that would where our colony on Orbis is at could be suitable." one of the officers said as he pointed to a location on the map.

 "Yes... That should be a good location. Well, give the order to our colony ships to land in that area. Have the Kote'aran. Dha'kot, and Parjai'tor hold position above it." Governor Noll replied.

 "Yes governor." The officer said with a slight bow. Slowly, the ship began to fly towards the planet, where it would create the first colony out of many that would be built.

 

Somewhere in Eastern Europe...

 

 The ship flew towards the planet, it's size blocking out the star's light for several kilometers around the area it hovered over. As the Kote'aran, Dha'kot, and Parjai'tor, as well as the colony ships approached the location, the hangar blast doors on the ships opened, allowing 300 transports to exit the vessels. Each transport carried 30 clones, who were to secure the landing zone for the colony ships. However, one more shuttle left the Kote'aran, one carrying Governor Noll and a squad of Commandos. Governor Noll, who wished to leave the vessel for a while, decided to leave the safety of the ship in order to oversee the colonization of the planet personally. After several hours of preparation, the colony ships began landing on the planet, and so, the colonization of PW-2 began.
