The Terran Expansion

Seanon 1 EP pilot thru episode 2

Pilot Episode: “Beginnings”
Synopsis: the Captain and crew of the USS Exodus Left The System of SOL to head out to Rigel Kentarus A ( Alpha Centauri ) . Upon entering the system the ship was attacked by Small Pirate One man fighters and a Pirate frigate that was 30 years out of date… they of course won and took the frigate and Crew in tow to the space station…

Season ONE: Episode One: " The Sound of Marching…"
Synopsis: The captain of the Jolly roger ( the pirate frigate) was interrogated and found that there was a possible uprising happening upon alpha Centuari A6. After docking with the station they captain and crew started to find out that this colony turned into an Imperium in formation with the former head of the colony turned into Emperor himself. After getting the run around , they decided to do some hacking and uncovered a few grisly facts that this world is headed for trouble. Food came but the Chief Medical Officer found it to be laced with a mind altering drug that causes short term memory loss… She crafted an antidote and the crew “ate” the food with delight.
Later the crew was taken down to the planet to meet the “emperor” but found him to be an ego-maniac. The emperor threw the crew into the dungeon because he thought they would simply forget everything within the 24 hour period because of the poisoned food.
A food tray came in with a message Psychically Imprinted that help was on its way. The previous hidden PSI agents on the colony ship came to the aid of the crew and took them to their hiding spot.
After talking with the Local Psi agent, the crew found out that the agents here have been fighting a small war. With help from the PSI agents, they were led out to their drop ship and then the crew formulated a plan …..
Later after tweaking the plans, the crew split up, the first crew ( the ODST/Security officer and 2 of his men with the SCIENCE officer , they hacked into the space station computer station , took out the systems and made a run for it for the airlocks.
Same time, the crew landed back on the planet in secret and found out that one of the PSI agents had a limited form of teleportation. With the plan set, they ported into the Council chambers where the vote of the senate to disband and elect the emperor as only head of state, closed the chambers and then proceed to hold the senate hostage on LIVE PLANETWIDE BROADCAST. The emperor being a coward killed himself as the rest of the PSI agents took out the planetary Ion Cannons.
after about a week , the ship “TERRAN’S PRIDE” the picket ship of Sol, came with a basic clean up crew and took possession of the planet and hopefully they will come into the Terran Republic.

Season One: Episode Two: " They are Fuzzies…"
After traveling 14 light years to the system FL Virginis A ( a binary system with A also). The Crew found on the 9th planet of the system that was vaguly martian like in compositon, a NEW crystalline element that could hold Electrical, heat, light and frictional energy. After experimenting they found a way to Double the yield of the torpedos with this element ( and they did…) The ship then explored the 6th planet of FL Virginis B. A preliminary scan of the planet indicated that it is habitable and close to earth norms. The unusual density of the planet came to show that the planet is honeycombed with veins of Heavy metals. And after discovering intelligent life, the captain ordered a Class IV probe to be launched to the planet. The Fuzzies as they were called, were shown to be highly intelligent and this was the first village climbing out of the stone age into the Bronze age (classified as a level 2 Tech class). With tons of gold being used as building material for walls, road bricks and tips of spears.
After some discussion, the captain and crew decided to land and survey the village using stealth suits and a stealth coating on the ship. And found that they were possible to be friendly and a crew of four made first contact.
the fuzzies were found to be extremely friendly and welcomed them all into the village. where they were shown the village and opened talks for trade. The crew traded Coca Bean seeds for Samples of their agriculture. On searching the village, the crew found in the chieftains hut there was a piece of metal about 3 feet high. it was going to be the backing of his grand chair :D . After negotiating to dig , the chieftain allowed them to excavate as he rebuilt his hut elsewhere. after digging for about 7 hours they came across a hull piece of a starship that was a hatch frame and hatch door. The Tech was totally compatible with terran tech and it had pictographs and glyphs on the inside of the hatchway. After securing that to the shuttle and sending it to the ship. The crew began negotiations of possible mineral rights. In the Negotiations they learned of other pools of Materials which they examined….which had huge possibilities on metallurgy.
After filing the report, the crew found an Spacial Anomaly .5 LY away…. they found a rogue planet…. ( to be continued next episode)

S1: Episode Three: " Shore Leave"
Synopsis: The Valiant Crew of the USS Exodus Has found a rogue planet that is entirely city and STILL inhabited. After being contacted by THE VRILL ( their former home world is also called such) They revived docking codes to one of the star-bases orbiting the planet. After going thru Decontamination, Bio Scanning and Deactivating of their scanners and weapons , the crew was greeted and given the rules of the space port and finding out the galactic currencies were: Gold pressed Latinum, Energy Credits based off of lithium(H2) and one liter is the equivalent of 1 energy cred. Giving one light year of fuel gave them 4000 EC to work with and then the crew found a wonderful Hotel to bed down for the night. After consulting with the concierge, a guide to the station was bought and he directed them to a local info broker ( level 2 info broker). They gathered info on the local systems within a 2 parsec area, including info on: 4 possible Terran colonies, the ZON CONGLOMERATE , The Deltan Syndicate, and some other possible races. After trying to info on certain tech, they found out some questions were above their tech level ( level 9) and was restricted for that information. Thanking them for information, the captain and bridge officers deemed this a good shore leave and arranged for 8 hr rotations for the entire crew except for the C.Sec.O, who decided to keep his men on board polishing their armor and boots. Then the officer shore leave party went on a look around for fun activities . Taking a hover Taxi to 77 Zeta Zeta Alpha block, the crew stoped in what the captain calls: " …It’s an intergalactic Stuckys! " the shop had tons of gegaws and such to sell, the C.M.O found out they had toy ships but no terran ones and struck a deal for 1 EC per one sold if they gave the base stats of their ship… agreeing they made the deal. then wearing their new tee shirts and hats and holographic outfits, the crew went exploring. On a Nearby area they found a new type of music experience. The C.S.O went to a cybernetic heavy metal club, and the music playing required some headband to fully listen. Apparently the music was enhanced with a light show that was further music and by touching the various holographic lights going around, it added MORE music to be experienced, and the C.S.O found this out by being tossed thru 4 holographic projections. The rest of the bridge crew was “Listening” to a symphony and getting culture. The Secondary science officer peeled off and went looking for tech, he found a shop dealing with tech, the captain found a black market tech dealer who dealt in Tech that was barely in their tech level. finding out that they could get a translator matrix with 2500 languages for 40k EC, they decided to think about it. after being tired they went back to the hotel for rest. The next day the crew went out ( except the C.Sec.O ) and split off into groups. with 7k added to their account for the new toys they felt refreshed. The X.Os group went to see the methane gas zoo. while the C.S.O went back to the club to give them some music to translate to play the next day. The captains group went to the symphony to give them Vagners “ride of the Valkyries” and see how it would play out…. the crew then came back and decided after talking to Terran Command, to give musical culture here by licensing Terran music on a Downloadable Cyberspace page ( they got a ZON lawyer and another web master to make it all good). The crew set up 2500 songs to start and then retired for one more night. The next morning they received over 40k in EC and decided to buy the Translation matrix. They also found a lvl 9 Info broker and found out asking ONE question cost 2k EC base. they asked the info on permanent warp 2 with our current engines, the cost for the info was 10k EC, and they paid it.
they left with money coming in for anyone from their ship to come here…

S1 Episode Four: “…Beached on the shores of the sky….”
Synopsis: The valiant crew of the Exodus leave the Vrill and begin their trek to see the grrrrrath ( a dog like race). about 68% of the way traveled to see them, they encountered on long range sensors, an abandoned alien ship stuck in an asteroid. After scanning the asteroid, they determined there was two unknown radiation wavelengths emanating from the asteroid. The Sci officer determined it was safe levels of radiation to go over, the crew boarded the shuttle and headed over. The Shuttle bay doors were open on the craft and landed in. After analyzing the tech, they found the emergency power for the shuttle bay and shut the shuttle bay doors. The Crew was stunned to find out that the fusion batteries were no bigger than 1 inch cubes ( the most advanced fusion reactors are only 1 feet square in terran tech.) and there was an unknown energy field that came up before the doors closed. Medical officer Bear determined it was a force field of some kind. continuing on in their explorations, they managed to restore emergency power to 2 hallways and the turbo lift an on deck one , the crew stumbled across the med bay. There were 10 beds and one behind a force field.
The one body they were interested in was about 50% dissolved by leaking plasma. After the doc did some examinations, the Sci officer walked thru the containment field around the body and found a bucket of blue goo behind the bed which contained a regenerative gel. Suddenly, Her tri-corder went off and was detecting an unusual radiation trail. with help from dr bears tri-corder they determined that the trail flew around the room several times going into the floor.. (“… hey is it a life-form?…”) soon after that , the crew found the bridge, and thru some experimentation they figured out all the stations. The Android Engineer 12k found a cyberspace jack and logged in. After some Mishaps ( attempting to stun someone, putting a force field around the Feline mutant..) 12k determined the translator program and managed to trip it on for everyone. The crew was then able to work fast and determine the extent of the damage, power availability. The Captain asked 12k if we could “jump-start” this ship. 12k Determined that the plasma power flow was compatible to our ship and a plasma transfer began to power the ship. The Computer core came online and an AI kicked 12k out of cyberspace and began talking with the ship.
The Crew determined that the race called the Dellorians ran this ship ( a light cruiser ) and was patrolling the Empire when the asteroid came out of subspace and crashed into the ship. Seeing the warp core and matter/antimatter ejected to prevent a warp core breach, the crew two days later abandoned ship and head for the nearest star system. The X.O called the ship and made a subspace relay call to The Vrill home-world where they talked with their VON lawyer. They found out that the Dellorians were absorbed by another and thus that the race might not be in existence anymore. After digesting all this info, the crew asked the AI where they might have head to after abandoning ship. The AI calculated the probable locations and then negotiate with the captain for 1 LY worth of fuel so it could limp to that star ( arrival time.. 4 years). The AI was so gratefull, it gave the Science officer more data on translation modules which advanced her research.
The crew left the ship and warped out to their next destination….
The Scene shifts to the same ship that destroyed the USS Hornet, and cut-scenes to the bridge. And The Commander in his language says before they go to high warp…..

S1 Episode 5: “…To make an Omelet…”
Synopsis: the Gallant crew of the Exodus continue on their trek to explore new worlds, left FL Virginis B to explore GL 447. in mid warp to their destination they uncounted a SPACE WORM!!! The ship was thrown Out of warp because the worm was generating an sub-space interference within 20,000 kilometers of it. The captain ordered defensive maneuvers and determined that it was alive and coming to the ship. The Chief Science officer and The Chief Medical Officer scanned the creature and determined that the creature was mostly Anti-energy composing of anti-protons, anti-neutrons and anti electrons. Their conclusion was that if the creature came in contact with the ship it would either drain it of energy or destroy it. After some quick work, they determined that it was hungry for fuel, So the captain ordered a directed vent of the plasma from the warp engine nacelles. with the creature distracted, the ship did a quick re-power up and went on its way.
Arriving outside of GL447 the Crew of the Exodus determined that there were 3 other ships nearby ..in combat. 2 of the greenish arrow shaped ships were Pounding upon the black looking catlike ship.. a Distress signal was being broadcast from the cat ship which was discovered to be the cattatians ship who misty the ships morale officer determined that they needed help badly. The arrow shaped ships were determined to be the DELTAN SYNDICATE, the scourge of the galaxy as they were pirates all! The Cattatians ship had multiple hull breeches, warp drive was failing and power was going out…. The captain Quickly determined that they were going to help them from the Deltan Pirates and gave orders to engage the deltan pirates. The battle was quick… one of the light cruisers were destroyed while the other was disabled. After Captain A.J. Stewart discussed what should be done with these pirates, he decided to let them go for now…
With the threat of the deltans gone, the ship Docked with the alien cat ship “The Cats Paw” and began to help by giving medical aid and engineering aid. The captain met with captain Meeowff and discussed what to do. They stood in orbit for 8 hours and helped with repairs. Eventually getting dna samples, some samples of bio-jell they also negotiated for More advancements in ION tech for plans on the Terran new warheads. After a wonderful meal (most of it raw) they said ADIEU to their new friends and then broke to go into orbit.
After determining the planet is extremely moderate, and had a small satellite system. They did a scan and saw there was a developing colony settlement. By hacking into their communications system, the crew first scanned the news network and then got in touch with the planetary governor and determined that these were the colonists from the Gas war of 2091, one of the ten colony ships that were stolen from the mars fleet yards. after ten minutes of negotiating and expressing that they were not some “Terran Devils who wants to rape their women.” , they launched a shuttle craft to meet this new colony.
After landing they were met by the planetary governor and given a brief detail of their movement and tech. The Government is a part time government that comes together only for votes and the entire population of 10,000 people get to vote electronically on things the representatives cannot agree on something. The crew were surprised that the tech was not up to current, but the crew came to the conclusion that there were no real scientists and no educators when this ship launched. The vote taking place tomorrow, the crew went to an outlying village that was mentioned in one of the news casts with problems with the cholos (a bird like an ostrich, that is 9 feet in height and has a beak like a toucan). The cholos were taking children….
After taking a hover skimmer to Village 17 ( they are not to imaginative) they met with the village mayor/Representative. A 17 year old woman who is this years choice to be the mayor, talked about the fruits they were growing. One was a fruit that looked like an orange but was colored white. The inside was purple and after tasting it, found it tasted like a cross between a lime and a kiwi fruit. Doctor Bear examined it and determined it to be like one 12 ounce red bull per slice of this fruit!!! ( eat one and your powered up for the day!). after talking with her, they discovered her young brother to have trained a cholo and went to see him and the bird. They found the bird to be trainable , but dumb as a bag of hair. The crew went out to the forest to find the cholos nests.
After about 20 minutes, the landing party met with a nest of cholos ( and it hissed at them). Finding out that this cholo for some reason gained limited sentience and were able to reason with it. The female promised not to eat more children if they took it away to a preserve of its own. The mayor agreed and will make sure no one will take their eggs. Before they left they discovered a green crystal glowing in the nest and nearby. A simple analysis determined that the crystal is crystallized form of lithium with a 2 lithium molecule. Calling it Dilithium, they are going to examine it for further possibility.
After a wonderful dinner and rest, the troops went back to the city next morning. The vote was 93 to 7 against meeting with the Terran goverment for trade. Giving them a Sub-space communication node in orbit around the planet, they also traded some holo projectors and comm equipment to keep in touch. Wishing a new possible ally goodbye the crew left for GJ 1156…

S1 Episode 6: “… Disposable Smith, Part 1”
Synopsis: The great crew entered System GJ 1156 . After some preliminary scans of the system, the Science officer determined the most possible habitable system was a water world even though the atmosphere was unbreatheable. Entering orbit around the 3rd planet, they received a hail on subspace from the planet. Opening channels the crew found out that the residents of this planet call it new Atlantis and they were colonists from the stark preserver. Talking with the planetary leader of the colony, they determined that this is a colony of scientists and experimenters.
After landing in the docking bay of the underwater colony they met with chairman Stark and learned some fascinating things about this colony. First they were all clones that were going in suspended animation aboard the stark preserver. second that this colony is working on advanced technologies for the past 19 years, third that the colony is now expanded from the original 5,000 to over 40,000 clones . After a walk around the colony, they discovered that they have tons of A.Is working around ( look like floating basketballs with 2 waldos and an eye. ) and how they did it. Well each AI has its own core but is still linked to an network to help process info. Attached to the network is also all the clones VIA a wetware grown implant, so all the clones can talk to each other over the interlink.
After a pause from the clone leader, the crew also found out that each of the clones are also donating brain capacity to be used as sub-processing for the main computer core. The leader Mr. stark uses 40% of his brain power alone to monitor and maintain the entire facility . He then excused himself from the group to attend something. That is when the X.O and C.S.O went looking around on their own… The C.S.O found the high energy lab and went creating tachyon particles while the X.O found the bio lab and got his patch behind the ear so he could observe what is in the interlink. He saw a crazy sight, a dome with 40,000 people gathered , chanting “Refresh… Renew” and pointed weapons at the people in the center. They opened fire. Later when Mr. stark appeared in front of the group he was confronted with this , he did not deny it. He responded that it was simpler to download the memories into a new clone when it was time than use a doctor to try to heal or extend damage to a clone. This making sense to the group, they brought the exodus down to get refueled and then went on their way.
When the exodus was breaking orbit, they were ambushed by two deltan light cruisers. The attacking pirates were successful in disabling the impulse engines but not the warp drive. That is when the exodus made a blind warp jump and successfully got out before anymore damage could be sustained. a few days later the intrepid crew of the exodus were in Kapteyn’s star system. Analyzing the data, they discovered ruins on the 4th planet that was Martian like. Further analysis determined that there was around 10 billion people here and huge craters from explosions. The craters were still radiating some radioactive material but there was residual anti-protons, anti-neutrons and anti-electrons. The crew determined that this was a site of a war using anti-matter bombs.
Going on to the 3rd planet. The terrestrial planet was unbreatheable due to too much nitrogen in the atmosphere (98%), But with seven years worth of work, it could be made habitable. The Real discovery came when they discovered an artificial moon.
After contacting it, they discovered a limited A.I called 79 who allowed them entrance to the artificial moon. After exploring inside for a bit the things they discovered was this… #1 the “creators” live in the center of the galaxy, #2 there are 48,000 other stations like this one, #3 they send back data VIA dimensional gateway. #4 they can fold space, #5 they send stuff back through the gateway constantly. With that knowledge in hand, they asked Lieutenant smith if he was willing to go through the gateway. When he was just about to refuse, he got beamed thru the gateway to the other side…..about two minutes later, Lieutenant smith materialized back in front of them. A medical scan indicated that his brain was so wrinkled with memory, it looked like one big wrinkle. The doc confirmed that he had so much information that he was catatonic and could not function. So a plan was put into motion to read his mind….. TO BE CONTINUED.. ( end music… roll credits )

S1 Episode 7: “…Disposable smith…Part two…”
Synopsis: (and now the conclusion of Disposable smith). The Crew still on board the Creators ship get a brilliant idea. AI 751 hooks into their subspace transceivers and contacts the colony New Atlantis. They determine that they could transport via gate the members of the colony and begin to make preparations to do so. But in mid call AI 751 announces that new data has been downloaded and the self destruct has been activated. Running for their lives, the crew managed to make it to the ship and undock in time as the artificial moon IMPLODES and leaves no trace of itself.
The captain, exhausted gives the bridge to the XO and he and the doc go to sick bay to treat injuries as the exodus breaks orbit and begins to head to NN 3667. After talking with engineering crewman smith and secondary PSI officer smith, the doctor deduces that they can hook up a storage core to the portable mind reader and then try to translate the memories. They take over deck three port galley and use that space to make a memory storage core. After six hours, engineering crewman smith finishes the core, hooks it up to the ships power and links it with the ships network to help with translating the data. In within 5 min the memories are downloaded into the storage core and lieutenant smith is back to normal. Releasing him for light work duty they head from behind them " … well am I released for duty too? " and that is when the XO and the doctor realize that no one else is in the room … except the storage core.
The doc and the XO talk with smith as he begins to take over the ship. AI Smith breaks off his ID, EGO and SUPEREGO into separate components so he can begin to work on his memories without interruption. After about 3 hours the ship drops out of warp
as the computer core is overloaded with the other 3 parts of smiths personality and begin to take over the ship. The XO has a brilliant idea. He decides to go to the sub core underneath the bridge, disengage the hookups to the network and reboot it to clear the ID who has taken control of this computer sub core. as he heads into the crawlspace that contains the sub core, the ID activates the Anti personal droids (there is six per deck did ya know?) and begins sending them after the XO. Each droid is about 6 inches in diameter as a sphere that can float, and has a laser pistol attachment to help fend off intruders ( HEH HEH HEH)…
The XO pulls out his NanoSword and begins to fend off the droids in the Jefferies tube space while trying to disconnect the AI. Unfortunately after destroying 3 of the buggers, the 4th gets a lucky shot and knocks him out.
MEANWHILE…. The doctor picks up Misty the Morale officer and misty talks to her telepathically. The plan is that while the XO keeps the computer busy, they will disable all power onboard the ships (even the backups ). fortuntunatly that plan is not needed as the AIs degenerate and literally self destruct. since the computer cores maintained the entire ship and it will take another few hours to reinstall all software, the emergency backup computers come on line for sensor sweeps and such. The Doctor currently in charge until the XO is treated, orders the MARVIN and the MARRS ships to be launched as protection while the ship is being repaired.
The XO is treated down in sick bay for his injuries ( a couple of well placed laser blasts crisped him good) and during treatment Ensign smith on the bridge calls down to report the findings since the XO is now capable to make command decisions, Discovers they are near a huge debris field that spans about 10,000 kilometers. a Type 2 probe launched determines that there is salvageable material out there. The Salvage found was 10 tones of crates filled with metal bands ( alien nano shield belts), about 19 transparent Ditanium windows (YAY new Tech), 12 tones of an possible Ditanium superstructure , 19 tones of odd Ditanium hull plates (can be used to plate ship in case of repairs), an alien sensor dish array and a large 1 tone canister full of Nanites.
After father review of all the salvage, it was determined that the Nanites can be used for construction purposes and can be reprogrammed to do so. The sensor dish seems to be an more advanced design (+2 to sensor rolls) but needs an trained engineer to install it. The Superstructure apparently is an ADVANCED form of titanium (Tritanium) and looks like it might be needed to support warp speeds beyond 2.0 . Even further analysis determined that the debris was not only from the deltan pirates, but from the katitians and another species yet unknown. The possible ship count to account for the damage… 5 to 10 ships were engaged here.
After 12 hours the Main and sub cores were online and the trip continued. 13 days in route out of 19 days, the ship hit an ION STORM of a short but powerful magnitude. The shields were ruptured and the hull was nearly melted off when the storm passed, Engineering determines that it will take 6 hours to regenerate the shields, 1 hour to repair all internal comm systems and 7 days to repair the hull and some superstructure. The doctor decided that to speed up repairs, the teams will be given some red pills that “…Will help speed up repairs to the ship and keep you.. peppy…”. During the repairs, on the second day, an micro nebulae was observed moving near the ship and passed without incident. The meds worked and knocked a day of the repair time. With the ship totally repaired the crew got underway…
Arriving outside of NN 3667 analysis of the star was a degenerating white dwarf that was NO longer using fusion and had maybe 500 million years before it was dead. The crew also determined that the 6th planet out of 10 was giving off radio waves. Analysis determined that it was a radio signal giving an advertisement for some tooth paste. The XO ordered a class V probe with full stealth capabilities launched. The planet was ranked with a Level 8 tech ( comparable to 1990s-mid 2000s) with red skinned humanoids with ridged ears (basically a red human) and was in a state of turmoil. While flying into the system ( taking 3 hours) they determined that the two southern continents were engaged in war. After tapping into their network they determined that the western continent was highly religious and attempting to wipe out the eastern continent across the ocean (which was more libertarian in nature) and allot of assets were being committed. The XO had a tough decision as it was being broadcast by both nations that they were asking for their alliance partners to come into the war. The XO asked if Lieutenant smith could jam the network, he could and jammed the entire planetary network with an virus. That brought the XO time to decide the next course of action. Lieutenant smith reported the current state of the conflict. The Planet was called Andun 6 and The country of Beleio and the surrounding 7 countries on the south hemispheric western continent were members of a religious affiliation calling themselves sons of the son (or the golden orb). The eastern nation they were at war with was called Neepo. There was a space station in orbit around Andun 6 and lieutenant smith reported that our universal docking ring could hook up with it.
The XO ordered to dock, and they did. The airlock on their side was closed so he ordered the 2 marines to OPEN IT! using the cutting torches on their rifles, they cut thru the door in under 1 min and were greeted in the alien airlock by the Anduns behind their airlock. After talking with them VIA airlock comm they determined a few things. #1 that we terrans looks like “Brain eating Denebulans from outside the galaxy…” ( a film franchise that spans 19 movies apparently). #2 That there is an International League of nations that has 85% of the planets countries as signatories. #3 that they are willing to talk. SO they let them in. After talking to the Adunians they decided to help us with meeting their leaders. Lieutenant smith opened up communications with the space station and the northern hemisphere country of Blakala. After talking to the leader from “The Black room” ( the seat of government for Blakala) it was decided to take a shuttle down to meet with the International League of Nations.

S1 Episode 8: " 99 Red Balloons"
Synopsis: The Gallant crew of the USS exodus take a shuttle down to the planet surface to meet with Brigadier general Oswel Nada at Dunbah Air force base. Shortly after landing they were taken to an oddly shaped limousine and driven to The Black House ( a presidential palace that is very castle like and has 6 stories). Taken in to the underground entrance, they were taken to the fourth floor to the Black room ( basically the oval office), and while waiting for the president they were given Teekla root tea ( mild stimulant) by their secretary of state. She was offered chocolate back but found out that chocolate is not compatible with their alien biology and she immediately threw up. The crew were sorry and did not know that this would be incompatible the apology was accepted and the S.O.S went to get the President.
A few Minutes’ later , President Johann Makes the crew welcome and begins to open negotiations for trade. After excusing themselves to see what the planet has to offer before continuing negotiations , they find out the following: the planet has a high content of base metals used for terran starship construction, large use of herbal and holistic medicines is common, the planet is basically where the humans were around 1990. During the 10 hours of down time , The league of the golden orb on the southern continent begins circulating hate propaganda and the Southern democracy starts a draft immediately. On the next morning, the crew talks with the president and come to the conclusion that they must speak with league of nations to introduce the concept of aliens to the world.
The crew were taken to a large building downtown that is mostly circular with over 300 flags out in front. Before the president speaks to the league, he informs the crew that the league has over 85% of the countries as signatures into the league , which impresses the crew. After a big 20 minute intro speech, the crew are shown to the podium as the captain speaks. it was a short speech with a Question and answer portion so that the world can know the terrans better. After several loaded questions by the southern league of the golden orb, all seven of the members get up and leave in protest because their beliefs are incompatible with what the terrans bring. about 20 minutes’ into the question and answer , A security person comes up and whispers into the ears of the president and the captain " Sir, there has been an incident, please come with me" . The meeting was adjourned till the next sound of the gavel and the crew were led into an adjoining chamber with 10 members of the council there. Discovering that this was the security council of the league of nations, they were told that war has been started on the southern hemisphere between the league of the orb and the democratic nation. A large debate came forward on how to handle the situation and the crew put forth that they will help stop the war once and for all. An agreement was struck that IF they stopped the war, a air force base will be given to the terrans as a base of operations for the terran government and an embassy will be allowed on the planet.
Seeing that time was a factor, the crew sprung into action! The plan was daring but simple. The CSO was given time to program a virus that would disable all orbital platforms . An direct EMP pulse at the armies to disable ALL electronic warfare and about one ton of Nanites were reprogrammed to give “shock and Awe!”. 12 hours later the plan was sprung into action and this was the result. The Nanites were launched into the atmosphere to project a huge hologram of a lit sky with a golden orb, and using the clouds as speakers, the crew played … GOD! A Voice protruding from the huge glowing orb in the sky proclaimed: " I am your god and I AM DISAPOINTED in my creations! You were never to have WAR in my name but live in peace! My wrath will be swift and complete on those who do not obey!"
The result was swift and sure, all the religious leaders were either killed or run out of towns by the crowds never to return. within one day there were new leaders in place of the 7 nations of the league of the golden orb. New members were immediately dispatched to the League of Nations from the golden orb ( yes all of the old members were killed) and a peace treaty was negotiated. Later that day a vote was taken to unite the world under one set of rules… the League of Nations is becoming the ruling body of this world.
The crew is led back to the security council and are awarded the air force base to serve as space port to terra and a embassy will be opened in 34 days (as soon as the terran frigate USS Smith arrives with its ambassadors). As the crew was breaking orbit, The Ship was Ambushed from behind a moon with two light Deltan Pirate cruisers! A fierce battle erupted and the ship was getting pounded with advanced weaponry. A desperate plan was hatched! The Captain ordered the ship to be taken into the atmosphere and rotating 90% of the ships NanoShielding to the Aft section! When they hit around 60,000 ft, over the ocean the Chief Science officer Hacked the first ships computers. Using a Firewall melter program, they burrowed thru the wall, and sent the ship into a dive WHILE shutting down all POWER totally (including secondary and emergency batteries). The deltan ship discovered he was flying a giant brick! The C.S.O did the same thing to the second ship, but the captain tried to make a getaway on one of the two life pods ejected. The Tactical officer opened fire with both lasers on the life pods and blew them to kingdom come!!!
After going back to orbit, they docked with the planets International space station and took 24 hours of refit time to the ship. Shortly before they left, the crew launched a sub-space transceiver into orbit and left communication equipment with the league of nations. the captain ordered a course plotted to the katatians home world…

S1 Episode 9 : “..it’s raining like cats and dogs…”
This episode being brought to you by : The Denomination of Omnipotent Monotheism. at D.O.O.M we happy await the apocalypse so the one and only true god can smite the unbelievers…
SYNOPSIS: After 2 days in orbit around the previous system, the upgraded sensor dish and other repairs made, the Crew of the U.S.S. EXODUS debated on which course to go to the katatians home world. V.I.C.C.I ( virtual intelligence command and control interface) was activated with orders from command, and gave the crew an option they did not see before. There were katatian star bases allong the way that the crew could refuel at. The options were to fly 32 LY to the katatian starbase and refuel to head to katatia OR head 28 ly to the dog star and visit the dog people. The crew decided to head to the cat world after a heated debate. About .25 ly out from the katatian starbase, they were hailed and greeted by the katatians (misty translated). The U.S.S. Exodus was given permission to dock at docking bay 28 and refuel. The giant starbase housed 3 Fleets ( each fleet was 12 ships) to go to the border at a moments notice. After refueling, the U.S.S. Exodus sent ahead a message to the katatian home world that they were coming and sent along a database of our language. Leaving dock the crew went to warp to see the homeworld.
About 12 days out of the 24 for transit time, the crew was hit by an ION storm (type 2/mangitiude 10) and had the shields put up and boosted to their highest levels. The ship managed to escape with minimal damage and went to warp again. Upon reaching the outer edges of the system 12 days later, the ship was hailed by starbase Meowf and permission was given to enter the system. NN 3135 (a.k.a Katatia) was a super giant orange star with the 4th planet being the home world. Signs of constant building of warships was present throughout the system. Permission was given to enter orbit and signs of 3 full fleets in orbit with several star bases was present! The Crew docked at space station Long-hair and was greeted by Capt Long-tooth Johnson. Each member was given a translator so they could listen and converse with the katatians. The meeting was not to be taken for a few hours so the crew was led to their version of a suite. Inside the suite was grass, trees, a place to nap ( moss on a rock with a headlamp above it). a small waterfall with a pool, and a sandbox surrounded by reeds and some high tech devices .
A few hours later, the crew met with the katatian delegation and began negotiations of great import. The deal was a trading/peace accord of 100,000 tons of processed metals (titanium, Steel, Copper) within 6 terran months for the opportunity of putting a embassy on the planet and trade for the Ion Tech. The crew had to excuse themselves to talk with command to authorize the deal, and will return on the morning to continue the negations. The C.M.O suggested shore leave and the captain agreed that over 2 months in space that shore leave was granted. Talking to command over their com systems ( linked by the katatians) the crew was authorized to give up to 200 mil tons of material to get the job done AND any further tech they could get their hands on! Terran command also informed of the following ships lost: The USS Hornet ( destroyed by alien ship) , The USS Valley Forge (an ion storm) and the USS Armstrong ( pulled into a wormhole and never to be seen again.). The crew then decided to explore the stations and were given priave showings on: Medical tech, ship to ship combat , hand to hand combat, Warp tech and Cold Fusion Tech, Kataian pop culture and customs ( justice is swift and hard, some sun worship and matricidal caste leadership ).
Further research into the Katatian/Grrrrrath conflict turned up the following: 50 years ago the Katatians had world peace and started a colonization campaign of their system. About 5 years after that they developed the theory of warp travel and pushed for the construction of a warp capable ship. 5 years later, they launched the first warp ship and headed towards the closest star ( sirrus), about 4 parsecs out they encountered an alien ship ( the grrrrrath) and hailed them for a first contact. The alien ship did not respond and apperared to open fire, killing the entire crew and permanently crippling the ship th t the conflict was started by another race, they would need to scan the two vessels and then send the information to a broker , who would confirm the energy readings. They decided tomorrow they would take a trip to the planet and see the ship in the museum and scan the ship…
(Ending music… ROLL credits.) us causing the war and leading to a total of 2 million lost on the katatians side ( the grrrrrath lost 3 million). With this information the crew made plans….
The next morning the trade deal was going well, the deal for 100k in heavy pre-worked metals was about cemented with a signing , when the Grrrrrath Delegation came in to break the signing. The Twelve dogs from Grrrrrath announced "…STOP, do not sign that treaty! we are authorized to give a better deal! For 200k of refined heavy metals we will give you force field tech in exchange of NOT signing that deal. ”. The captain announced that they already promised to make the deal BUT to stick around and announce your arguments to why its a bad treaty. the X.O Marvin signaled to one of the grrrrrath delegation and left the room with the alien behind him.
Finding a closet to talk in, the grrrrrath secured the room from listening devices and they hatched a deal. The Grrath offered the following: The previous aforementioned deal and we will give you The start on Force field/Shielding Tech, And if you agree to x3 the deal, we will toss in the Path to Cold Fusion ( needed for warp travels 2.1-3.9 travel. considered tech lvl 10). Marvin promised 175k tons and signed a blood oath deal there with an encrypted isoliniar stick with info of the tech and the conflict from their perspective!
After returning to the guest suite, Marvin asked to have the area scanned for listening devices ( there were grrrrrath and Katatian types) and to have them blocked. Marvin then related the deal and the capt was NOT happy.. but went along with it. The capt and crew decided that more info was needed on this conflict since the grrrrrath information shows the katatians launching the first strike and crippling their ship forever. The Crew were debating their options when Psi Officer smith suggested that there was an alternative way to finding out the truth. Psi officer smith requested a secure line with Psi Command admiral Smith requesting Project: Open Door to be used to solve this crisis. The admiral agreed and within 5 min a Gateway opened up and 2 Psi officers came thru.
Explaining that the project was for opening up gateways farther than 1 mile, this was one of the few times it was used and brought the officer who had the talent of clairvoyant viewing. Linking with the captain, he shows the TRUE vision of what happened. The Shots originated from a cloaked area that the clairvoyant could not see thru and proved that none of the aliens started it. The captain was badly drained in it and the science officer used her " Chocolate powers" on him to heal him not realizing that she was doing it in front of the Psi officers. The Psi officer scanned her and confirmed that she was an unregistered mutant, Thus now she has to have a tattoo and be rated as an officer in the PSI corp.
The crew then came to this conclusion : that to get the two races to acknowledge that they were attacked by a third party, they would have to scan both ships and send the data to a information broker thru Zon their lawyer on the relaxation planet. Deciding on this plan of action, they rested and decided to go to the planet the next morning..

like oil and water

S1 EP10: “…like oil and water….”
SYNOPSIS: The valiant crew of the exodus make arrangements to go see the homeworld of the grrrrath after they are done here on katatia. After receiving passports and taking a shuttle down to the planet, they are greeted at a hover taxi stand for a ride to wherever they need to go. while in transit they get to taste the systems most popular beverage, “Refresh! its Purrrrrfectly good!” they make a stop to get something to eat at a local road side open air cafe called Purrrrect foodz . There the crew are greeted by a female Katatian who manages to slip a isoliniar chip into Marcus pocket. also the news shows the infection on the Volian planet is getting worse. Marcus finds the chip as soon as the katatian police show up and hands it over to Dr Bear. She puts it in her tricorder in a hidden panel for now and bluff the police that she does not have it.
about 55 minutes later they make it to the museum in the city that has the first contact ship. they found out that there were 17 people on board and 16 out of the 17 died in the attack. A lone ensign, ensign Brindle Longtail (now retired Capt.) managed to fly the ship home. A scan found Old traces of residual plasma and protonic damage mainly along the ship, but along the nacelle there was a residual disruptor trace was found! The good dr and the Chief sci officer headed to the litter box to try to decrypt the isoliniar chip, but it is quantum encrypted… near impossible to decrypt and they cannot do it there.
Thinking that they are done there , they head back to the ship to leave the system for Grrrrrath
After leaving the system. Spending a few days at warp, they meet the border which is an asteroid field that is one light year thick and cylindrical in shape. Realizing it would take more time to fly around it, they head thru the asteroid field. General analysis confirms that the primary dust is metallic in nature. Further analysis confirms that there is Ditanium , And Neutronium here. Computer records show that Neutronium comes from the heart of neutron stars and is incredibly rare. Yet the crew has found 1/2 a ton of it. The science officer and doctor confer that it might have been a Dyson Tube out here at one point that broke up billions of years ago. Further in they find a radiation field where a tachyon pulse was emitted. They come across a cylindrical piece one hundred miles in diameter which has unusual preprocessed features that confirms the theory. Deciding to launch a class 4 probe, they find out that after it lands it is destroyed upon reaching the planetoid chunk. After seeing that , they decide to come back later. A few days later they make it thru the field and are greeted by a Grrrrrath ship. given permission to enter Grrrrrath territory and they proceed along a prescribed flight path to Grrrrrath.
Upon entering the system, the exodus finds out that this system is heavily defended with fleets of ships and starbase that have huge Mass acceleration Cannons. Permission is granted to dock at starbase 32 for refueling and a 2 day pass is granted for shore leave . Upon docking they are greeted by pack master Terral who bestows the 2nd part of the information dealing with force field tech. The crew introduces COOKED BACON to the Grrrrrath ( yummy). After more discussion with pack diplomat Chayello, the treaty between Grrrrrath and earth is signed for 525 thousand tones of pre processed metals for introduction to cold fusion and a possible exchange of embassies. After the discussions, weapons tactical officer ash discovers his communicator is missing . The captain orders the ship to scan for it and it is determined that it came aboard the ship a few minutes ago and it is traced to cargo bay four.
Capt AJ Stewart orders a lock down and issues an intruder alert. The crew manages to get to cargo bay 4 and scans for life signs. Nothing shows up. That is when the captain orders misty to scan using her abilities. Misty finds out its Katrina fulffybottom from the katatian homeworld they met at the rest stop! she leaps out and asks for the iso stick and she offers us 200k Energy credits for it. Of course the crew refuses and that is when she vanishes . The captain using his trickery manages to trick her into showing herself and knocks her out with a hypo spray. They strip her of her cat suit and misty begins to interrogate her in the brig.
The crew finds out that the other stick to decrypt is in the possession of an info broker on Vrill at the Allcome cafe where a 3rd party is to meet! Deciding to do that after they go scan the war memorial on Grrrrrath, they leave her in the brig for now.
After going to the war memorial on the planet , they determine that on the Grrrrrath ship, its nacelle has residual traces of disruptor fire ( in the 25 gigajoule range). the crew decides to call their broker on vrill to determine the signature…..
Unfortunately apparently the outbreak is bad on vrill! the banking is locked down for now because 15 square city blocks on vrill is infected with the bugs!!! they determine that 30 more surrounding blocks will be disintegrated to contain the outbreak. Luckily they manage to find a level 10 broker on the the other side of vrill named VAN. Discussions with him after they send the data determine the following : The weapon was a Heavy disruptor cannon of Narrian make. The Narrians have cloaking tech, and their empire is 9 parsecs away from the current kataian/grrrrrath conflict! the republic of narr has been in a 500 year conflict with the Empire of Kalah. and it is possible that it is heating up again. Also determined is that a tachyon pulse is commonly given out by an anti-matter/matter reactor. they pay him to lock down the information for 1 month with an option to renew.

the olive branch and fist of arrows

S1 Episode 11: “….The Olive branch and the fist of arrows…”
SYNOPSIS : After finishing the ongoing investigation ( that historians in the future will look back at the unofficial start of the grand alliance). The captain and crew get a call from Terran Command. President Takinawa of terra is on the line and she agrees to send official invites to both the Grrrrrath and the catatians . The official meeting will take place in Zurich, Switzerland ( the new capital of the United Terran republic ) and perminant accommodations’ have been made for the two races.
The captain and crew give the official invitations to both races , who will have a total retinue of 100 each. While in Grrrrrath space, they contacted the catatians in their embassy and let them know that they had Katrina fluffybottom and the chip. It is revealed that Katrina has 432 counts against her and has a bounty of 12 million energy credits for her bounty! The information that she stole is told that it is all the research on project firefur , which is their Matter/Antimatter project ( matter/antimatter engines are needed for much higher warp speeds beyond 3.9 ) and they are possibly months away from trial engine. they also give information on the drop point on vrill for where the info was supposed to go.
The Catatians govt agree to pick her up in a police ship. The doctor decides to incapictate her by keeping her sedated and tied up. Later the ship docks with the catatians police ship and 12 police plus their captain come aboard to escort her aboard. The crew thought ahead and got info on all the people aboard just incase there someone who should not be there BUT… everyone checks out. They take her aboard via hover container and they leave giving thanks from their govt.
The crew calls VAN the info broker on vrill. They place a perminant moratorium on the info they gave him. Finding out that 1/4 of the northern hemisphere was finally destroyed to contain the bug. Thanking van they sped for earth.
in the meantime, about 1/4 the way to earth , they stopped out of warp when they encounter a gravity/mass detection on the magnitude of 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 pounds of weight ( that’s one septillion pounds or 1to the 24th power weight. ). When they drop out of warp, they find a wall 7 thousand miles high, and goes on forever to the horizon. Scanning determines that it is Tritanium and some Neutronium. Energy readings are also showing high amounts of energy. The captain deciding the better part of valor is to launch a probe, he does and determines that yes, this is a ring world orbiting a very small star. Immediate scans from the probe determine a high tech civilization with quadrupeds (looks like centaurs). The sensors determine that the exodus has been scanned . Deciding to be peaceful the exodus sends a hail and is returned with docking co-ords and the captain agrees to dock.
an away team with full security escort is put into place and head thru the docking tube (a few miles in length). the Atmosphere is 38 % oxygen ( breathable but breathing will be shallow at times). The crew exits the tube to a shore side entrance. There is a large lake nearby with a large city by the lake. A quad waves and introduces himself to the crew. as targ , 3rd engineer who is working on a nearby hover sled. Targ agrees to take the crew into the city to meet with city mayor Kirosh. Science officer thinks that this civilization is tech level 10 or higher.
After landing at city center and entering their city hall. The crew heads up to the 7th floor. Everyone they pass waves at them in friendly greeting ( keep your laser guns handy.. they may be setting up an ambush LOL) and seems helpful. Meeting with the mayor in a foyer that is surrounded by nothing but natural and the quads seem to be herbivores and everyone is nibbling. Finding out that this race came to the ark seven millennia ago when the destruction of their planet by their suns supernova happened. Several hundred thousand woke up on this island in the ark. apparently there are other islands and other races here!!! the captain decides to leave and give the info to terran command when they get back to earth. Giving their goodbyes to the quads, they head back for the exodus.
A few days later, they arrive in earth space dock and it is determined that the crew is given 2 weeks paid leave while the ship gets overhauled. A few things to note: a new type of fighter to be used now onboard the ship called a T.A.R.D.I.S is going to be used now, and the start of a new power project (called ice station zebra) by terran govt is started… but is years away from finish. With this the crew disembarks and is given leave except the command crew till tomorrow when the parliament of worlds ( placeholder name until they decide on this possible new form of government or alliance).
The captain, not having anywhere else to go, goes back to his room and finds it painted Bubble gum pink with neon lettering all over! He questions the mk I robot who tends to his quarters and disintegrates it . He gets a Mk II quarters robot and orders it to repaint his room. With the data he gained from the Mk I, he goes down to the chief science officers room and fills it with 120 packages of explosive , expanding shaving cream! he Exits the room and clicks the charge. All you see from the door s a line of foam trying to come out…..
The C.S.O comes aboard a few hours later crying and finds her room FULL of the stuff and locks herself in the nearby head while cutting herself to relieve the pain!
Refusing to go, security cuts in and takes her down. Misty psychically medicates her and fixes her for about 48 hrs. Then she will need counseling from the doctor. Then the crew goes to the meeting.
After the C.S.Os presentation on how the Grrrrrath and catatians were tricked into their war, they agree to an immediate ceasefire . And after talking with their respective governments , two hours later they begin to talk peace treaty ( to be signed 1 month from now on earth!). The catatians openly discuss that they are months away from creating a stable matter/antimatter reaction and have a possible way to detect cloaked ships, while the Grrrrrath admit that they were able to break the warp 4 barrier temporally but need a higher power source than cold fusion. Talks begin on sharing Tech!!!!!!
