"Yess I think we're all well aware of the giant hole. Now lets move it!" Micalio shouted, grabbing Aui and trying to drag the other girl away from the destruction, medical personnel or not it wasn't worth risking their own lives to go search for corpses. The red haired mechanic looked around for an easy way out, the way they came in seemed good as any and close by to boot and so that was where she headed.

"We need to get to the escape pods, I have studied enough models to know this ship is going down and we don't want to be on it when it does. So either come with me and survive or stay and almost certainly die."

Mess Hall

Aiu was about to apologize to Micalio and properly give her a medical checkup when an unexpected lurch in the ship sent her stomach into a mildly nauseating bounce. She glanced around for any changes in the room; her eyes stopped on part of the commissary that just didn't seem to exist anymore.

"The room is breaking apart, we don't have much time!" she shouted, quickly scanning around for any injured personal she could drag out before it was too late.

Ay'indri curled herself around the wounded crewman as the ship's alert system continued screaming at them. She braced, and thank her lucky stars that she did. There was a sudden lurch as the ship was thrown out of whatever fresh hell they'd been trapped in. At that moment, the Or'ion agent felt herself lift, her tummy doing a flip as the momentum threw her from the crewman and into one of the bridge's consoles. There was a loud yip and suddenly everything almost went black as her vision wavered and narrowed.

While it only lasted a few seconds, the pain shooting through her back and her head throbbed and kept her awake. Flopping to the deck, the now wounded fox curled her fingers against the debris ridden plating of the deck. Something sent shooting pains up and down her left leg. Warmth trickled down her calf, and upon looking, Ay'indri saw a shard of glass the size of her hand firmly embedded in her thigh.

She touched it gingerly; wincing as it shifted a little under her touch. A grimace marred her countenance more from annoyance and pain than anything. Wounded, Ay'indri got to her wobbly feet, shifting her weight to the right leg. Thankfully the console provided some support. Hobbling back over to her patient, the impromptu medic sighed a little in relief. They still lived thanks to her taking the brunt of it.

The medkit had slammed itself against a wall nearby with its contents partially spilled on the deck. Ay'indri found gauze, a compress, and a little tape. Sliding herself down, the agent ripped her pant leg a little to get at the wound with shaking hands.

Zeu Star System

The Zeu Star System had seen a lot of fighting, so much so that dense debris fields of wreaked vessels scattered the system. Close to the systems only habitable planet, two large fleets - one comprising two hundred vessels mostly of small to medium tonnage belonged to the Kushin, who were fighting to retake a system they had lost to the opposing nation, the Vincon'hansaw which had a fleet of just over one hundred. The fleets stood in low orbit over Akeron, the only habitable planet and one that had an active planetary shield to protect it from orbital bombardment. Dropships from both fleets moved to and from the planet - depositing ground troops or reinforcing those already there.

Out of all of the ships in the Kushin Fleet, one stood out amongst them all: a two kilometer long vessel known as the Katalin of Dawn, a Command Battleship that had positioned itself between its fleet and the enemy, shielding several carriers that launched fighters and bombers. Behind were two square shaped vessels that had over half a dozen Kushin ships docked to it, while a third one had its front side pointed toward the enemy - serving as a shield.

Inside the Katalin of Dawn, Admiral Lingreta - a Shukaren who was taller than most of her race - floated in zero-g as she orbited a holographic tank that showed the battle that was presently playing out. She occasionally moved to get another angle on the battle and then rubbed her chin curiously. "What's the enemies status?" she shouted.

"Ninety eight active vessels, two crippled. Their command ship has retreated to the rear," one officer shouted as they bought up the enemy fleets movements which were then relayed to the holo-tank. "They are bringing four vessels forward, configuration match battlecruiser types." The holo-tank focused on the four ships, making them standout from the rest of the vessels.

Lingreta continued to rub her chin as she watched. "Four battlecruisers, if intel is correct, light on the armor but heavy on the weaponry," she looked toward her comm's officer. "Order Fleets Osiris and Gamatron to the front, I want to harass these ships." Her comm's officer nodded, relayed the orders, then a half dozen green dots on the holo-tank suddenly began moving, first from behind the command ship and then ahead. "Inform the wind leaders not to take chances." She wasn't about ready to lose any ships to four vessels that were technically more well armed than her assault ships were.

As the battle played out, one of the communications officer spoke up. "One enemy battlecruiser is down, four of ours are badly damaged and returning to the rear." The officer placed their hand on the headset, as if straining to hear the conversation. "They are requesting permission to offload wounded on the medical frigate." The four ships soon appeared in visual range, passing by one of the ships external camera's and giving a clear view of the damage.

One of the ships was missing most of it's forward section, which would've housed the main weapon. Two others showed various types of damage across their hulls, including dozens of breaches. While another had a hole that went straight through from the top to the bottom, Lingreta knew from that angle that the ship's bridge was more than likely destroyed, and thus it was most likely being flown by the vessels secondary bridge. She gave a quick salute to those who had perished, then turned her attention back to the battle.

By now another of the enemies battlecruisers had been dealt with and disappeared from the holotank. "Two enemy ships left, Osiris Wingleader reporting forty percent lose."

"Pull Osiris and Gamatron back," she sighed as she watched the display and folded her arms over her chest. It was then that her eyes caught something on one of the ships other external cameras, this was followed by a communications officer saying. "Alpha and Echo Fleets are in position, awaiting orders."

Lingreta grinned. "Order them to fire, target the battlecruisers first, then the rest of the fleet." She turned to her left, where she watched as the ships comprising of those fleets, roughly eighty meters long with a stubby nose and a long barrel, moved up alongship the command ship. Muted by the background of space, the war-room brightened as these artillery vessels suddenly fired, a mixture of both energy and kinetic weaponry.

"ETA Till rounds on target," one officer shouted before running calculations. "Thirty seconds."

"Be advised enemy fleet has started moving," the holotank now showed the remaining ninety four enemy ships begin to head straight toward the Kushin fleet.

A death wish? Lingreta mused and shook her head. No, our enemies are not reckless,

She looked toward her staff. "Advise the fleet to prepare for-" her words were suddenly drowned by the ships alert system.

~"Alert! Alert! Unidentified Vessel Emerging!"~ announced the ships AI.

"Report!" The admiral shouted, spinning in the air and taking a hold of the hand rails.

"Sensors are detecting a rift out!"


"Directly ahead!" a volumetric display suddenly appeared in the war-room, allowing everyone to see, a large hole in the fabric of space began to appear. Suddenly the space between the two mighty fleets lit up; what was once open space full of missiles and kinetic warheads was now occupied by a large vessel with dozens of fires that dotted the hull. Within seconds, the salvo's that the Kushin had fired would impact this unknown ships hull, ripping into it and creating additional fires that spread along the vessels port-side.

Lingreta watched in disbelief, she hadn't seen a ship such as this before and initially wondered if it was some new enemy design. "Can you identify the unknown?!"

"Negative, ships hull doesn't match anything in the database."

"Ma'am, I'm detecting no shielding on the vessel, not even that which is designed for Rift Travel!" the science officer shouted, as the holotank showed a dozen impacts on the unknown ship from Vincon'hansaw weaponry.

For a few moments the ship just seemed to float in space, not doing anything, just then several turrets on the hull came to life as they turned toward both fleets but nothing happened; instead the ship then started descending into the planets atmosphere, belching smoke along multiple hull breaches. It wasn't long before the nose ran straight into the planetary shield, scrapping against it.


Chi'ka found herself tossed the floor, the handrail she had been holding onto had snapped. The entire ship shook violently from external impacts from unknown weaponry, some of which bore deep into the ships hull. She attempted to steady herself, but the rocking of the ship made that more than a little difficult, so instead she brought her tail up to one of the railings and wrapped what she could around it.

Despite the multiple explosions that could now be heard across the ship, the only damage that the Bridge and CiC sustained from it all was a few sputtering consoles. She headed for one of the still working consoles, the ships AI had registered the additional impacts as weapons fire and had taken automated control of the ships turrets but there wasn't enough power for them to fire. Chi'ka was about to bark more orders but the ship shuddered violently, as she looked up at the ceiling.

Mess Hall

For a few seconds everyone would feel themselves become weightless; it wasn't an odd feeling since the crew was more than used to it, what made it odd was the fact that being up high in the air - the group would notice a giant hole in the mess hall.

Ay'indri wore a look of concentration after wringing her hands together with sanitizer and donned a pair of blue gloves. Bending over her patient, the agent went about tending the wounded man. Ay'indri, however, was far better at killing than healing, though it came as a source of information to draw from for the basics of first aid. It was enough to help staunch the bleeding provided her patient didn't move around too much. She told them as such while she injected a low-level dose of something to help numb the pain.

That was the extent of what she could do. It would have to hold until a medic arrived on the bridge or they could someh- the half-formed thought popped as a voice boomed over the bridge loudspeakers. Her furry ears twitched, and her eyes widened. On reflex, Ay'indri bent low over the wounded crewman preparing to use her body to shield them if necessary.

"No Doc I'm not the one you need to worry about, grab your boyfriend and let's get moving!" The red-haired Daur barked, despite them being all the same rank Micalio had already seen what happened when these two tumbled all over each other and she didn't need any repeats right now, scanning over the room she immediately noticed the strange wall but saw not-yet-dead crew scattered about as well. "Alright you two, take stock of all the injured here and try getting them stabilized if you can, I doubt we have time to go back and forth from the medbay with all the commotion. I am gonna go take a look at that wall, it could be dangerous if it turns out to be some massive laser cutting through the ship so be ready to bolt."

Mess Hall

The mess hall didn't exactly look ready to serve breakfast, but she didn't immediately see anyone injured yet either. That was at least better than she expected. She was about to start searching when a sudden hand on her shoulder caused her to jump. She turned around and sighed in relief when she saw a familiar fluff of red hair.

"A-ah, sorry about that. It's good to see someone else doing okay in this situation. are doing okay, right? Feeling nauseated, dizzy, anemic, anything like that, Mi, uh, Micalio, right? Sorry, I haven't really gotten the chance to talk to you much yet. I don't suppose this is much of a time to start though. If you're okay, could you see if this room is too dangerous to stay in? I heard a distress report from here so I wanted to look into it, but they might have already been carried out to the med bay by- Barb, what happened!?"

Aiu interrupted herself at the bloodied, wheezing sight of her fellow medic. She quickly looked over his face for the source of the blood, brushing his hair aside in the process. She couldn't find anything, so she followed the blood to his hands and--

"That's not your blood," Aiu sighed in relief and smiled after the medical glove on his hand help connect the dots. Though now free of her urge to help, her mind realized what she just did. She quickly spun away in embarrassment, her tail lightly smacking against him accidently.

"W-we should search the room, let's go."

Medical Bay

More and more crew were filing into the bay, some with minor injuries that weren't there to be treated but rather just there to help out - while others had serious injuries, ranging from broken to missing limbs and having left a bloody trail behind them. The bay rocked violently every few minutes as explosions could be heard in the distance, but suddenly, an explosion could be heard that was much closer than what some felt was safe.

"What was that...?" one of the crewmen was heard saying as bottles and unsecured items crashed onto the deck. This was followed by the found of bulkheads snapping and steel girders warping. Everyone could hear *something* in the distance. It would've caused everyone in the bay to stop and listen, briefly, since the sound seemed to travel, and sometimes it would sound as if it was below them or sometimes above them.

This was followed by a sudden explosion in the medical bay.


The Furi'ken continued its slow tumble through space, fires had stopped popping up, but explosions still occured along the outer hall. The ships hanger bay was exposed to space, but strangely enough the fighters and shuttles within weren't sucked out and instead just tumbled in the open-air hanger.

Crew quarters that had also been exposed to space likewise had their belongings just tumbling as if there was oxygen in the air. The ships observation deck was also breached and, like other area's of the ship, likewise had no explosive decompression.


On the bridge, the door finally opened; Chi'ka stumbled into the ravaged area with a cut on her forehead and her uniform torn apart. "Well... shit.." she muttered after seeing the carnage. The shipmistress rubbed the back of her head, and started to prowl about to see what was still working, before she heard something in the ships CiC and looked in to find Ay'indri tending to a patient.

She was about to speak when suddenly, over the loudspeakers: "Alert! Emergency Fold Out Initialized! Repeat: Emergency Fold Out Initalized!"

Mess Hall

The mess hall was a mess, tables over turned, glassware shattered upon the floor, bodies everywhere. There were groans coming from some of the bodies. Purple and blue lights danced across the far back wall, this wall seemed strange though compared to the rest of the mess hall; to Aiu, Micalio and Barbanov, this seemed out of place.

Barbanov had been busy helping a small group clear some rubble and then dealing with the injuries that came with it all - improvising a gutted pen as a breathing tube to help ensure one of his fellow fox's collapsed lungs didn't fill his chest cavity with blood and helping staunch the flow of blood from another patient's all but shredded leg among other things, by the time his golden-brown head poked through the door again it was stained with a smear of blood from the back of his own palm, the rest of Barbanov's lean little frame scurrying through the partially opened blast-doors with a bundle of partially used medical supplies in tow.

Healer... DePolanskaya~" he wheezed, drawing more oxygen into the Daur's burning lungs before he stood upright, "... ready for duty~"

Micalio stood up after patching the pressure locks and looked around at the now doomed ship. "Well I tried." She said aloud to no one in particular as she ditched the helmet which had filled with alerts and red icons and ran for the medical bay. While she wasn't a medic herself she knew thats where many others would likely be, other than the bridge but it was unlikely they'd be able to save the ship at this rate, those explosions didn't sound good.

On her way there the red haired Daur saw that softie medic run into the mess hall and decided to take a detour, bursting through behind Aiu she looked around at the carnage. "Hey! There's nothing my lot can do anymore, just give me a job and I'll do it!" She said grabbing the smaller medic by the shoulder so she knew she was being spoken to.
