PostSubject: Operation Nightbane   Sat 05 May 2012, 4:45 pm

Admiral Gilgamorn stood from his command center, and prepared to address the crew.

This was perhaps, one of the most dangerous missions that he had ever been asked to accomplish.
The mission parameters were simple, but the scope enormous.

To stealth into Flesher territory, locate the Flesher homeworld, and destroy the Tyrant Lord at any cost.

The Fleshers possessed more units than the 3rd Alteriian Navy, more drones, more resources... They had a nearly impossible reaction time, a faster flight speed, their "ships" more agile, able to withstand more punishment... The Fleshers were able to hatch more units in a blink of an eye, and redesign them just as quickly to suit any need. Their units did not fear, they did not feel pain, they did not retreat.

The only advantages Admiral Gilgamorn possessed were stealth, and surprise, and the superior fire-power of his battle-cruisers...
Stealth was the main weapon of the 3rd Alteriian Fleet. The Fleshers could not fight what they did not know was there.

"Soldiers, Comrades, Brethren and Sisters of the 3rd Alteriian fleet... I am addressing you today in the hopes that you will put your trust in your commander, just as your commander puts his trust in you. We Alteriians and allies have fought the Fleshers, pound for pound, life for life, blood for blood, for decades. We used our technology against their biology, our ships against their creatures. We have protected the Alteriian way of life against these abominations for longer than some care to remember. And always have we been on the defense against their incursions.
But no longer. Now WE have the advantage. Now WE will send the demon-spawn sprawling back across the 2nd Nega Dimension to the putrescent primordial muck they crawled out of...!"

Gilgamorn paused a second, as he listen to the cheers erupting from his own ship. His Alteriian spirit was uplifted, by his analytical mind kept on going through his chances of success. Which were slim.
He had some 140,000 of the most advanced Stealth Systems that the Alteriians possessed (The new Aurelius stealth drive), he had nearly the entire offensive might of the Alteriian Armadas pressed upon the Flesher worlds to give him cover, he had the brightest and best working under his command...

And yet...

"Our orders are: To engage the Aurelius Stealth Drive, locate the elusive Flesher Homeworld, and blast their Tyrant Lord into ten-thousand pieces! Krios!" (Death!)

The Alteriian commander stood listening to the stout cheers of the men and women under his command, their voices swelling amdist the ship's fibers, and over the comm units.

But he knew it was a fool's errand. Their stealth drives were indeed impressive, but the Alteriians were pressed on too many fronts at once. Fighting barbarian pirates in the South, hunting Verax and his army, making sure Alteriian colonies and dimensions were well protected, probing Twin-Tongue's forces... fighting this war with the Fleshers...

Personally he gave them...

One chance in three.

(Adios guys, I'm going to Michigan!)

Several heart-lurching days passed as Alteriian stealth drones reconnoitered deep into Flesher space. They were tracking movements of Flesher units, of which there seemed no end. There were millions of them, literalness millions and billions of Flesher units. There were so many that they proved impossible to track individually, even with the 30 or 40 thousand high-tech drones they were using.
The best that they could do was observing the corridors with the most movements, which all lead deeper in the the 2nd Nega Dimension.

Unlike some of the other Nega-dimensions, the 2nd was terrifically, indomitably, fantastically huge. Easily the size of the 5th, 6th, and 7th together.

They had been scouting and patrolling for weeks, avoiding masses of enemy troops every couple hours, but still there appeared to be no sign of the end of this dimension.

Not only was this dimension huge, but it was stuffed full of garden worlds that possessed little heavy metals for repairs and rejuvenations. No wonder the Fleshers conquered this place so easily.
Already the drones had detected several large patches of high quality metals floating around in the middle of space, usually in front of entrances to solar systems. It would appear that they were the defense fleets of a race now destroyed utterly and wiped from existence by Flesher blood.

Gilgamorn wiped away half a tear from his eyes, and continued to the next information report, which was no better.

According to the high-band and frequency channels that Alteriian command had been sending his communication ships, the Alteriian attacks had met with little success. Or at least, ground gained.
According to the reports, the Fleshers were being crushed by Alteriian forces virtually all engagements, but no matter how many hundred of thousands the Alteriians destroyed, millions more took their place.

They had laid several traps, ambushes, and surprises for the beasts, and nearly all of them went as planned, but it seemed that the Fleshers could just take the casualties running like an endless supply of sponges. No matter the kill death ratio of tens of thousands to hundreds, the bugs had millions more troops.

And that all made sense according to previous sets of reports Gilgamorn had seen. The Fleshers didn't need metals, just atmosphere, and space. There was plenty of space in the second dimension.

No wonder The Council agreed to Operation Nightbane unanimously... it was their only hope at victory through semi-conventional means.
Attempts on other fronts were underway, biological warfare, mind control, psywave disputers, one could only hope that one of them would succeed.

For if they didn't...

One Chance in Three.

The Alteriians had been traveling through the depth of the second nega dimension for weeks, finding nothing but more and more Flesher controlled space and flesher controlled worlds, the population estimates varying with the size and properties of each planet.

Most horrifically, even admist the terror of so many enemies so close, were the empty skeletons of other ships floating in orbit around many of the planets now controlled by the Fleshers. Undoubtedly, these empty husks were the vessels of another nation or nations, who had attempted to oppose Flesher dominance. Eventually the number of hulls they had spotted out in space outnumbered the current number of ships they had in their fleet.

Glilgamorn reassessed his chances... one in six.

The second-Nega dimension was huge, easily twice the size of the Alteriian's adopted homeworld dimension, the seventh, and it was crawling with Fleshers of all types and kinds, as well as several hundred classifications that he had never seen or heard of before.

How on Earth could you kill this many enemies? The sheer weight of their numbers was like a literal physical burden on Gilgamorn's shoulders, and the rest of his crew as he could he.
They could only hope that they succeeded, because unless some scale tipped, the Fleshers would destroy every race in the positive dimensions without barely slowing down.

It was a good thing that the Alteriians were the first race the Fleshers encountered, because the Alteriians could use the edge of the second nega-dimension to bottle-cap the Flesher numbers. If they had a single launching place into the rest of the universe, there would be no stopping them.
