Entering the shack Xenon looked about for a light source but found none...Remembering the helpful property of a holocron she pulled out a green cube and set it on a table. its light shining brightly enough to let them see inside through the sand storm. "Man this really reminds me of Tattooine."
She coughed and chuckled while shaking the sand out of her light armor and the light saber itself.
Calling upon her little drone she didn't dare to call out while outside she searched through her inventory and picked out a rebreather. The object was basically materialized in her hands and with a little beep it flew off and settled in her pocket. "Hate this thing..."
She murmured before putting it on and clasping it shut behind her head. with an airy hiss it formed an airtight seal around her face, keeping the nose and mouth hidden from sight. Each of her breaths could now be heard as the rebreather worked on keeping the dust and sand out of her lungs.
Multiple airlocks opened as the remaining air rushed out through the gaps, kicking up some dust. Red lights flickering on while an elevator ascended with a rather large person aboard it. Tinted blue from head to toe she was clearly female that was looking up the now open shaft she was ascending. A smirk clearly visible on her face which took only a few moments to be covered by a hard shell just like the rest of her body was. Strong thick tail was latched onto a weapon thats even longer than she was tall!
Announcer: "Communications established!"
An shaky at first moving image of the commander appeared in the woman's vision before moving off to the side as bar on the bottom of her FOV filled up, indicating her Higgs particle reserves. On the far left a green schematic of her own body appeared giving all green. To the top right corner a minimap appeared as blue markers were added to it at a rapid pace. 1 2 10 20 soon it was filled with over 150 markers all in formation just outside of the massive 30 kilometer ship.
Commander: "C-3 your mission is to destroy and intercept the first wave that was just launched by the Gauna. Your rear guard will take whatever slips by you so concentrate on whats in front don’t backtrack."
As soon as the Commander gave the mission briefing the minimap zoomed out to show 130 Gauna signals approaching rapidly. 1.2 million kilometers wasn’t much when the cosmic speeds were concerned here.
As the elevator stopped four pads around it lit up orange, stepping ahead on one the rest turned red while the one she stood on turned green with a beep. Looking into the distance she zoomed in to see what theyre up against. It was the large mass union ship guarding the Gliese 581 star system they had chosen for an gravitational slingshot maneuver closer towards the center of the galaxy. The enemy gauna was hundreds of kilometers long with massive long tentacles latched onto a poor ice world. "Chimera C-3 launching."
Reported the blue woman as she suddenly took off from the ships outside. Covering the entire length of the ship in mere seconds she shot right past the massive gardes formation around the front of the seed ship. Four of them however followed her in a clasp formation to keep up.
Another quartet of moving portraits showed up in her vision with the four pilots that were her rearguard. "Frame 881…frame 876…Frame 888 and frame 889."
Each pilot have their ID number to C-3 before introducing themselves proper with actual names.
Even though c-3 didn’t say anything in response they still said "Copy that! Disperse and enter five pilot clasp formation."
In reality just like the gardes C-3 despite being alive and capable of thinking for herself also housed a pilot. She was small but definitely a capable pilot for this much faster low profile chimera. Matching up speeds with the quad formation she crossed her arms right as the formation opened up to let her join. Clasping onto the machines all five of them headed towards the first wave together.
Commander: "Contact with Gauna in T minus 3 minutes begin the deceleration burn and separate from the chimera."
Rear guard: "You heard the commander let the chimera go."
And just like they were told the chimera was let loose as their formation rebuilt to be a quad again. Giant boosters moving to a reverse position began burning to decelerate while C-3 on the other hand accelerated even more only to get yelled at by her pilot. "Slow down you psycho theyl rip you to shreds at these speeds!"
At those words C-3 also began to slow down while muttering. "spoilsport…. Can never have some fun around here."
She was pouting under that hard mask.
Announcer: "Theres a change in the first wave. Theyre entering a ring formation and accelerating towards C-3!"
Another announcer begins yelling out their finding, "Massive higgs particle buildup in several of the gauna signals! More are joining in!"
Her voice suddenly broke as she was in total horror. "Th…Theyre all chimera breakers!"
Captain: "C-3 get out of there don’t let them get close to you!"
This time it was the captain issuing a direct order to C-3 who immediately complied and took off in a different direction only for the ring formation to take pursuit.
Didn’t take very long for them to catch up with her as the formation broke up and 17 Gauna were headed for her directly. Turning around to face backwards but still fly away C-3 took her Lance cannon in her hands. With a split second of aiming she fired at a gauna…missed fired again scored a hit no disintegration. Fired again, missed. Adjusted sensors and fired again. Scored a hit first core exposed second shot and a bubble disintegration confirmed. Fire once again and again and again.
Back in the bridge the announcers were all yelling out their readings. "Bubble disintegration confirmed! Three cores down no five!....no All 17 signals have been eliminated 23 more signals are headed her way."
after only a few short moments in the bridge they were seeing exactly what C-3 was looking at. Shaky distorted static filled images of Chimera breakers popping one after another. "20 bubble disintegrations confirmed! Three have managed to get past her!"
Commander. "Rear guard eliminate the stragglers."
As the commander spoke she watched the gauna engage the four gardes.
Announcers: "Contact! Frame 889 heavy damage! Bubble disintegration confirmed…Frame 876 heavy damage!"
a moments pause the announcer called out. "Frame 881 heavy damage! Frame 888 Pilot dead Cardiopulmonary arrest. The R-rear guard has been annihilated the remaining two gauna have entered formation and are approaching the homeland defenders!"
Commander: "C-3 eliminate them all don’t let anymore get by that’s an order!"
C3 nodded and shot off towards the remaining Gauna which had re-entered the ring formation and were charging up Higgs particles once again. "Higgs particle density rapidly rising! Heavy gravitational distortions in the formations center!"
In the background she could hear announcers yell out as the commander issued another order. "Dodge it! Theyre about to fire an compound graviton beam!"
With no other options but to dodge the moment they fired she just barely escaped certain death as the beam went racing off into space, missing the ship by mere kilometers. The high energy of the beam alone was enough to send the ships electronics haywire as it shook from gravitational malfunctions and the screens were full of static. Once the images returned to normal they saw the path that shot took. Almost 90% of the homeland defender squad was reduced to either red or yellow.
Announcer. "More bubble disintegrations confirmed across the board all first wave gauna have been destroyed. No more…NO! All contact to c-3 has been lost!"
What the ship however did not see was a massive explosion Almost looking like a green star eradicate all the enemy gauna as it took C-3 and dropped her off within a gravity well and an atmosphere at cosmic speeds.
The entire left side of the tiny schematic in her vision was turning yellow as the heat built up from the friction and drag but there was no slowing this one down. In all the confusion all she could do is pull up to try and escape the atmosphere but the ground was closing in fr too fast!
A short moment later a bright light could be seen approaching extremely quick. far faster than a regular meteor could and it was headed right for Vegeta! "Get out of the way!"
A voice came from the bright blue light Which smashed right through a bomber plane as it didn't exist but there was no telling if the person heard it in time before she smashed into the ground besides him with the force of a meteor impact. the initial hit digging a crater 50 meters wide before letting her bounce off the ground and impact it once again. This time digging a deep ditch and coming to a grinding halt after smashing into a building which came crashing down upon her.
Her weapon went bouncing off the ground several times and going over Grimlocks head before getting itself impaled into a tank, saving the lives of a few Guerillas. The lance cannon hummed softly as it awaited its owner to come and get it back.
