"We've been hit; Observation deck has been breached! Biological signals, dozens, no, hundreds of them!"
"The scum should not have dared to come on my ship. Seal all bulkheads. Flood them with oxygen and incinerate them all."
"Sir; the crew ar-"
"Do as I say. Or join them."

Rows of heavy bulkheads clamp down along the Allecto. The air starts becoming rich with oxygen on the fore decks. Drones start flying in to detonate themselves against the spike.

"Railguns ready!"
"Bring us around the station. Destroy them."


The Allecto swings down towards the station. More torpedos hit the transport, chaining secondary explosions and ripping it apart.

The battleship fires all guns at close range at the Kraken.

"This is Alpha Wing, we're engaging your target."
"Two here, making a run on that boarding vessel on you."

Alpha Three engages the Kraken, while his wingman moves to get a run on the boarding spike.

"We've cleared the lower decks, that rock is gonna trash this place. Multiple contacts coverging on our position. Bugs outside the station trying to burrow in. Machines crawlin' all over the place."
"Do not engage the Technarchy or any other machines, Major. Hold your position and prepare for those Heirocracy insects."
"Aye sir. We'll rig this place up good and paint the fuckin' walls with em."

"BURN YOU FILTH!" the priest cried launching a fusion beam through the worm, a nearby fighter fired a weaker fusion beam to aid in the purging.

The converter made a change to it's trajectory aiming to weave between the asteroid and the nearby ships.

The fighter neared the portal.

A violent reaction inside the worm causes a great inferno to cascade out of it. It strikes it's aggressor as little more than a husk, clamping it's claws down with the last of it's strength. Intertia ensures that the whole assembly is destined for a backwards drift.

The infant worm seizures as some kind of energy grabs onto it's tail. It desperately claws for the Cannibal 2, but it doesn't look like it's going to make it.

The fighters press on despite casualties into the wave of smaller Inheritor lifeforms. Screaming can be heard over their radio channel as one pilot is cooked in his seat by a flash of energy. The chassis of his ship glows with ambient heat. As a fighter approaches two stalled OTS torpedoes, it encounters resistance from the shield projector against its hull. A second fighter makes an attack run on the curious organism creating the field.

The Saratoga continues making repairs and dispatches a handful of reserve fighters for its own defense. A shuttle is launched from the side bay with a team of engineers who have their eyes on the derelicts left by Korglob battlefleet Yeet. Admiral Neil opens comms with the asteroid base claiming to be Indian. He had no knowledge of any ISN installations in this close proximity to the Arduant, but perhaps one was established as a field hospital. An older message from the Technarchy about some sort of replicating machine they considered a severe threat could have been a smokescreen to cover their own move into ISNS territory. The admiral trusted them very little, especially after they bought the loyalties of the OTS in the heat of battle.

"Vigilance station, this is a disturbing development. If this footage is genuine the Technarchy will be brought to justice. My investigators will review it immediately."

<<Fuck! Worm's dead! This is Cannibal II to every ship receiving, the sun cult have killed an endangered, asteroid dwelling creature of supreme natural beauty. Do not interfere with our subsequent judiciary action!>>

The captain looked to his small group of lieutenants within the command centre and pulsed his body in a shrug equivalent. "That sounded legitimate enough, right?" before commanding the ship to wheel round. As it turned, masses of rock was pulverised and pushed, a cloud of it flying towards the technarchy ships at great speed and the rest of it cartwheeling off in the general direction of the smaller cult ship.

From the rear bay of the Cannibal II, a pair of assault barges blasted off, with the Arduant in their sights. Although heavily damaged, the station was likely to contain something of value still, the potential for food supplies also made it a tantalising target.

The smaller worm had a gravity field formed around it, with the intent to pull it out of the green beam of DEM strangeness and towards the hull of the Cannibal II.

---

The small fighter launched from the Cannibal II managed to survive the return fire from the ARM ship, more through virtue of luck than piloting skill. The unlucky arm ship was smashed apart by debris as the fighter was passed by Raakshas 2, on his way to assist his flight lead.

Ajagara swept his craft around the asteroid and over the Technarchy fleet. His pulse cannon charged once more, he let loose on the largest of the ships, the shot spider-webbing across the hull and striking the enormous torpedoes as they were fired. The heat of the weapon at the impact points was enough to melt away the upper layers of the ship's armour, and the surging energy it brought with it wormed its way through the ship's systems, temporarily disabling it.

---

Within the wreckage of the Chennai, Captain Kaliash received a transmissions from ISN strategic command.

<<Captain, we underestimated the threat you'd be facing defending the Arduant, backup from the 3rd fleet is incoming. They should arrive soon>>

Gunfire pours out of the asteroid toward the swarm of Technarchy drones. Hidden amongst the gunfire are ARM machines, making it very difficult to notice which are a threat to the battleship and which are a threat to the drones.

Furthermore the drones are showing more and more specialization toward their tasks. Most of those seen on the surface of the asteroid are older models fitted with guns. Others begin attacking the battleship from the point at which it collided with the asteroid, while about half of the total drones are sent into the station rather than attacking the battleship, most of which are specialized to survive longer against Technarchy drones.

Peetal 5's fighter makes a return, although its cockpit has been gutted with a simpler drone control. It keeps a safe distance from the Technarchy drone swarm, corkscrewing beneath the station as it fires two missiles into the drone exit points. The fate of Peetal 5 is unknown.

Quick description, will edit later.

Kraken suffers a withering barrage of fire, but continues its charge. Bioforms are notoriously hard to kill because they have a seemingly endless number of redundant parts. It uses its Ability to pull the large ship in close and begins ripping into it with its claws while positioning the bulk in front of it as a shield. Also spews out a number of small creatures which circle around to prepare attack runs. Inside the ship, warrior bodies run rampant cutting apart any marines and crew they can find.

Carnivore takes a hit on its ventral fin, uses Ability to deflect the course of two projectiles away from it, fires a chunk of metal from its launch spout. Fighters and small critters engage in vicious fighting, torpedoes are redirected into two fighters, two critters get exploded. One boarding critter gets its tentacles locked on a foe, a laser critter blazes away at another.

"WE'VE BEEN GRABBED!"
"MAJOR DAMAGE COMMODORE! MULTIPLE GUNS DOWN! SHI-
"Full Burn. Cut us from those arms."


The Allecto's engine roars at full power. The CIWS cuts through the Kraken's legs, but not before they tear deep into the battleship's armour. Despite the full throttle, the Allecto struggles to escape the telekinetic grasp.

Alpha Three is swatted by the ship's sudden seizure. Two sends a missile into the boarding spike.

The horde of surviving drones from the Pasobcha attempt to overwhelm the small attack biocraft.

"Contacts swarming throughout the fore column! All over of outer hull! They've breached three bulkheads!"
"Vent all heat into the fore column."
"Y-Yes sir. Venting."

[Image: okVdzyJ.png]
"AAAAAARRRRGH"

The oxygen rich crew corridors in the front of the Allecto explode into an inhospitable inferno. Marine, crewman and alien alike stuck within the halls are incinerated.

"Internal temperature at 1200 kelvin and rising; Oxygen depleting, We can't maintain this!"
"All safeguards have been removed. I will not be beaten by mindless invertebrate scum. Prepare all weapons, overcharge capacitors."
"Sir; core temperature close to critical! We can't sustain this!"


Lavanchy roars.
"DO IT!"

---

Marines on board the Arduant are shaken by the collision of the asteroid. Most clear the direct impact, but secondary damage results in a few casualties. Captain Armiger and the crew of the Kijima make no contact.

<<Unsheathe the sword! Let loose the debris!>>

The Cannibal II bucked back wildly as ultra high speed, red hot debris gushed out the front of the ship, cleaving apart the green energy, the worm and the cult ship with almost no resistance. The smaller boat behind the cult ship had its front sheared off by the gravatic force placed within the rock fragments, and explosions wracked both craft as their internal systems were compromised.

The Trio of barges continued on their way to the Arduant, two being multipurpose cargo/troop transports and the last being a dedicated freighter. The marines inside were of wildly varying quality, but each and every one was spoiling for a fight. Many of them were quite hungry too: The Arduant would be a suitable place for the Cannibal to cement its name...

---

Raakshas 2 continued the assault against the Technarchy, buzzing the two smaller ships near the furball of fighter craft and loosing a pair of missiles at the the larger of the couple, keeping his engine at full pelt: being bogged down in this area would be certain death.

Ajagara, with his pulse cannon discharged and four missiles left, elected to blast away from the fight for now, and observe the situation from afar, specifically looking for a channel to re-enter the fight.

The crew of the cannibal II watched in horror as the psionic corvette formed a barrier redirecting the laser through the incoming heretic fleet and the sinner escape pods.

A message was passed through every ship
"Now you witness our power. However we will no longer allow surrender, you shall be executed to the last. If you have any prayers say them, If you wish to contact any loved ones do so now. You shall not be returning to your homes."

The fighter began passing through the ever-widening portal.

As one of the destroyers is obliterated by the laser beam, the order to shoot the Sun fleet is given. All of a sudden, a huge amount of firepower is unleashed upon the hostile ships. The destroyers that were previously busy recovering the pods cancel their task to fight.

The drone sent to scout the other parts of the sector crashes into the asteroid as it is pushed back by gravity from the beam. A new one is sent out of the light cruiser to replace it and it immediatly engages the Sun cruiser.

The second group jumps in to assist the first one. Upon arrival, they are greeted by an HUGE FUCKIN RED LAZOR and weapons fire.

A message is sent to the USSF;

"We have recovered ten escape pods, but we will have to pause the task as we have been fired upon by the Sun fleet. Provided in this message is video evidence of the Sun fleet destroying pods."

The video shows the Sun ship opening a portal redirecting the laser beam, then the camera moves to the mercenary destroyer being split in half and finally some red hot pieces of scrap metal that were previously escape pods. Additional information from radar and scanning equipment is given to prove that the pods were in the way of the laser beam.

Peetal 5 crashes into the station after firing its payload. Carrying more drones, the ARM infection has now spread to the center of the station.

Many of the Technarchy drones are destroyed on their ascent, but many more still live to fight back.

The shuttle approaches the Korglob flagship, now motionless and giving off only a faint energy signature. With some luck, the engineering team would be able to restore main power. Aboard the Saratoga, the weapons hit in the blast earlier are repaired and the main cannon charged. Things were calm at the moment, but new threats continued to appear and multiply. The Technarchy's actions could not be ignored, and footage from the hired mercenary fleet showed that the cultists were killing the surviving crew of the Chennai with a massive redirected beam weapon. Then there was the Cannibal II, the source of that beam who had previously cut the ISNS flagship in half and was now launching raiders to the devastated Arduant. The Admiral sends a subspace transmission calling for support from any USSF vessels in range. It was a long shot this far from the colonies, but worth trying anyway with the Lexington destroyed and fighters in short supply.

"Good work on recovering those sailors. Your payment will be wired to you imminently. Our forces are engaged with a nasty invasive species, but we will fight with you against these fanatics as soon as possible. Until then, good hunting."
