Star Blazers 2205 (Space Battles RP) - IC
I'm still waiting on some of the players to post character sheets, but we'll get started anyway, so not to waste time.
The UN Cosmo Navy's remaining combined fleet, 40 capital ships strong, approached the 'coast' of Pluto. Immediately the mysterious enemy approached from the edge of the Heliosphere, coming in swarms of smaller, more agile ships.
"Earth Fleet, we advise you to surrender immediately." The message came through comms to the flagship, battleship Amagi, commanded by Admiral Kodai.
His comms officer turned to him and paused. "Sir, how shall we respond?" Kodai paused and then: "Tell them...they're idiots!" The radioman went wide-eyed. "!?"
"I said idiots!" Kodai repeated impatiently.
"This is the Earth flagship Amagi. Our answer: 'Idiots!' Over." The radioman nervously related the message to the enemy.
Immediately the enemy ships turned their gun turrets to face the UN Fleet. Firing the first salvoes, they destroyed the EDF McKinley and Kinugasa.
Admiral Kodai coolly ordered the fleet into evasive maneuvers. "General quarters. All ships, independent evasive action. Surround the enemy and isolate them if you can. Only fire if you have a clear shot."
