Battlestar Galactica: Though Destruction, Perseverance

Two thousand years have passed since the last of the colonist arrived on Earth. In the process of accustoming themselves to the planet, they destroyed the remains of the original Battlestar Galactica and hid the truth of their identity from their ancestors.

However, not all evidence of their existence was whipped out. Journals, ship plans, histories, and philosophies were left behind, hidden in a collection of literature hidden under the Sphinx.

The United States Government decides to construct a new battlestar, named Galactica, in the hopes of exploring the vastness of the universe through the technology of jump drives.

However, shortly after the completion of the new Battlestar Galactica, the Cylons attack Earth in order to whip out the final descendants of the colonist. The Battlestar Galactica escapes the invasion with a full crew and a few civilians taken from Earth shortly before its inhalation. Led by Major Michael Baltar, the Battlestar Galactica jumps away just in the nick of time. As they are pursued, Baltar decides to risk the rest of humanity and return the descendants of the colonist back to the Twelve Colonies of Kobol.

Space Fleet – May 2013
Summary of the Month
Star Trek: Eternity
*********************************

Hope escapes the debris field, going to warp. Soon, Eternity is right on her heels. Each of the pursuer’s shots demonstrates massive power which threatens to denude the fleeing Intrepid class vessel of her shields. On the bridge, Capt. Barlow is silent and studious as Vreenak discusses options, maneuvers and power reroute with LtCdr Moore, Ens. Farooqi and Lt. Hocevar. In Sickbay, the newcomer, Reese, fights to save the life of a severely burned Colin Byrne, until sudden power demands plunge the compartment into blackness, taking the EMH as well.

Hope, pursued by Eternity, sustains blows that decimate shielding by nearly 80% with each impact. Lt. Hocevar attempts to speed up power rereouting to the shield generators by means of a direct interface. Impossibility upon impossibility; time seems to stretch as Capt. Barlow & LtCdr Moore leave the bridge, to join a team of engineers in devising a Generation 7 based bomb to waylay their pursuers.

The explosive works it’s wonders, infecting Eternity with a spread of Generation 7 nanotech. In sickbay, a similar battle is waged within the comatose body of the badly injured Colin. Dr. Reese and Cns. James work in tandem to relieve suffering and enhance healing. Engineering begins to assess their battle damage, as Cdr. Vreenak finds himself facing a blockading force of at least a half dozen Turei vessels, all emblazoned with the stamp of the syndicate.

Blockade becomes confrontation as Logan recognizes an old foe. Opening negotiations of death threats from the flagship “Crimson Knife” are soon answered with a “diplomatic packet” energy pulse from the crippled Hope. Their systems going offline, the blockading vessels opt for the path of least resistance, and await orders from an equally confused commander. Capt. Barlow faces confusion of his own, wishing for the days of engineering challenges over those of command. He appears in Engineering, leading the team he’d used for his infection bomb, and receives a status report from a harried Lt. Hocevar. After a troubling encounter he could only brand dream or madness, Colin awakens in Sickbay.
