INCOMING NEWS TRANSMISSION
The grand ship ANS Alcubierre was found a wreck, floating in space one beacon away from the nearest ship, the GNS Invincible.

It is unknown what happened to her crew, but they were assumed dead due to the lack of oxygen in the ship.

According to a local miner who witnessed the whole battle but could not intervene, "The Alcubierre was orbiting the planet, plotting it's next jump course when an Engi carrier almost ten times larger nearly jumped straight into it. The carrier immediately started deploying fighters."

The miner refused to say more about the carrier.

TRANSMISSION TERMINATED

ANS Alcubierre(mommothazaz123)>GNS Invincible
Encryption level: Military Emergency

I'm alive...

They jumped behind us and started firing before we could charge a single shot.
I'm hitching a ride back to a secret hanger in sector XG-76J. I'll send you the coordinates when I'm there.

THEY HAVE WEAPONRY.
I'm assuming they have a Pre-Igniter, otherwise they would not be able to charge that fast!
There's some sort of beam... It's not a recognizable model. I'll try to get intel and send it back.
There's a HUGE laser on the carrier... It takes almost ten minutes to charge but fires a blast strong enough to stun an asteroid...
We need some serious weaponry if we're to take this down.
Wait... Is that their flagship?
END TRANSMISSION



UPDATE: INTEL ON HANGER
I am currently en route to a secret hanger where a group of my scientists are working on a number of prototype weapons.
These weapons are currently mounted on a Osprey-class ship, and we are using asteroids and derelict ships for targets.
We have been able to reverse-engineer the Rebels' Anti-Ship Battery and mount it disguised as a Heavy Laser. Our weapons experts have suggested an upgrade to the Battery so that it runs on only one power unit and can charge in nine seconds.
Currently we are working on a VERY heavy laser capable of doing up to ten hull damage units in one shot. We have managed to get the laser operational, but it takes over two minutes to charge.
Other prototype weapons are also in development.


((I'm trying my hand at modding, mostly using Superluminal for ships and Notepad to edit the data files. I'm going to try putting it into a .ftl tomorrow. Yes, some of these weapons are OP. Yes, I'll edit them.))

If you are hearing this, then the Engi epidemic has reached exponential levels and will spread uncontrollably from this sector, from here on out classified as: Omega 9-10.

I am relaying this from my capital ship of my personal fleet, The PFV (Phoenix Federation Vessel) Sentinel, with few of our ships left as they have been lost in the defense of Omega 9-11 and Omega 9-9, leaving few of our vessels to defend the surviving civilian sector, who are blissfully ignorant to the Engi A.I. assaulting the outer reaches of HEAVILY POPULATED zones, of which they live in.

Spyglass, our High level A.I. will fill you in on the details, Spyglass?

Spyglass: Of course admiral.

Estimated Civilian Casualties in Omega 9-9: 1.2 Billion of the 1.2 Billion population.

Military Casualties: 150,000 12 Vessels and 500,000 Automated Infantry units destroyed or hacked.

Estimated Civilian Casualties in Omega 9-11: 6.9 Million of 7.0 Million population.

Military Casualties: 250,000. 15 Vessels. 1.0 Million Automated Infantry units hacked to serve the Engi.

Currently, all sector defense systems have been hacked to fight for the Engi by virus we cannot locate. The source is the Engi Flagship in construction on Earth.

Retrieving the virus code will disable all automated systems hacked to fight for the Engi, coupled with precision placement of a new program onto their system will force all automated systems to fight against the Engi and will destroy them and their fleet.

Sir the situation remains untenable, unless the humans can force the automated forces to fight for us, the Engi will overwhelm us. Even with the assistance of automated forces, we may be overwhelmed due the assistance of drone operated Federation and Rebel vessels to the Engi.

Recommend that in the event the Automated forces are successfully hacked, we utilize them as escorts til we reach The Milky Way system to be assisted by the 12th Battlegroup.


Hmm, what about the mission for those on Earth?

Spyglass: Recommend an advance team lead by Sargent Briggs, coupled with the assistance of piloted mechs and advanced automated units with a suicide protocol in place.

Coupled with an assistance of the human agents which will allow for absolute mission success.


Your mission is to find the Engi flagship by tracing a known Engi unit, and allow for the advance team to escort you into it to upload the virus.

Spyglass: Sir, Engi scout forces have jumped into the system. Escape is of paramount importance.

Will we be able to hold?

Preparing Ground forces for Planetfall, uploading Firewalls and advanced tracer, standby...

Spyglass, I need damage reports.

Of course Admiral... Hull integrity of PFV Colossus... 75% Hull integrity of PFV Knight... 50%. Hull Integrity of PFV Stalker... 59%... Hull integrity of PFV Sentinel... 65%

Status of the Engi virus activation?

Upload at 3%, 2 Hours until trace complete.

Cut the signal. Get Briggs' squad to find that Conspiracy Theorist, we need what he has.

All other squads, get the the drop pods and prepare for planetfall.
This is no easy mission...

BUT YOU SON. YOU WERE BORN FOR IT.

ha the self replicating robot explorer probe i sent into engi space killed a lot of the bastereds by turning there ships in to raw materials for replication thay may figure out a way around this but i dont see it working when there space is swarming with them

the data on this transmission is corrupted to make it hard for those engi to get into our stuff i suggest you do the same

zelnick out

transmission ends

some data was attached to this transmission is a folder with 100 txt files in it with very simaler names and are a mess inside like it was a zip file at one point

You will all join the Engi in time...

Sounds like the Cybermen from Doctor Who ;D

Clear those bodies and seal that door, we have to move.

If you're hearing this, we survived long enough to send it.

Spyglass, situation...

Of course admiral.

PFV Sentinel... 67.9% Hull integrity PFV Colossus.. 15.2% PFV Knight... 76.9% PFV Stalker... 98.8%...

Sir, the situation remains untenable, Engi scout brigade remains undefeated and soon the large enemy fleet will assault us. Recommend full retreat.


Never-mind that Spyglass.

If you are hearing this, you've heard our last message, Briggs and Raven team are walking into a trap.

You have to find them, or else we're screwed...

Wait a minute...

Colossus! Most of your security team just flat-lined!

THEY'VE BREACHED THE DOOR GET OUT-

*Disconnected by wireless host :Engi rat.

*Warning Trace detected...

* Disconnecting...

*Complete...
This is no easy mission...

BUT YOU SON. YOU WERE BORN FOR IT.
