Antiquaty Ostia Antica.
« on: September 14, 2008, 08:28:27 AM »
The aide rushed through the door, and pushed his way through the throng of politicians and high ranking military officers, he made it to the desk and planted both his palms down on it, panting he tried to speak. "Minister, they've arrived, there at the city border," he finally managed to breath out almost raspily.

"Dear God, may heaven have mercy." The minster stood, General Askua, ready the city defences, I want all soft targets protected at all costs, Extreme force is authorised."

The man clicked his heels and saluted, "As you order Minister." He said before turning and exiting the room with the other officers.

"Ramon, I want you and the others to leave and make yourselfs safe and secure, if they get through we'll need you to rebuild, live long myfriend," The minister said as he offered out his hand.

Ramon, the Minister Secunda, took his hand and said, "And long life to you, Rual. We'll endeavour to rebuild, but what of you, where are you going."

Rual De la Vega, the minister Primera, then turned his back on his friends and faced the window, he spoke with an empathic and powerful voice, "I am staying here, to show the people, that we shall not give up to these retches, the people of Bellona shall see what pride I have in them and their planet."

Everyone then filtered out of the room and Rual was now all alone, looking out on to the view of his city, of his city, he felt a tremble shudder through the floor. and saw the first explosian off in the distance, across the river.

There was the general chatter amongst various groups of people in the great hall, when suddenly a voice came booming, "Order, Order."

Silence fell across the hall, at the head of the hall a man stood, "Gentlemen, ladies, This session of congress has been raised to see if the Security Fleets have our backing, in it participation of the current conflict of the Planet Bellona. First we shall hear the plea of help from the Bellonian leader." He man said as the lights dimmed and a holographic image of a portly fellow hung in the darkness.

"Ladies and Gentlemen of the Systems Senate, I Rual De la Vega beseech you to come to our aid, for several months now a minor political party hasbeen gaining support and becoming more radical in its ways and actions. The so called Chosen Sons, as they call themselfes have now formally declared war and wish to 'liberate' Bellona from the so called oppression of our neighbouring planets, Dra'den and Laneria. As you may know our planet would not be able to support itself without our allies and neighbours, we lack suitable enough ariable soil to support even a quarter of our population.

2 Hours ago the leader of the Chosen Sons, a Marcus Tandi, lead his follows into open warfare against our capital, we emplore you please come to out aid, we have no idea how long we will be able to last." The head then faded away, and the man at the front stood again.

"My fellow senators, let us now vote, Shall we aid the current and legitimate government or shall we leave the planet to its own devices." The Hall suddenly breoke out in riotous shouting, people for and people against each vyed for their opinion to be heard, and in the air hung the results board. The two bars, started to shift their positions each going up and down until finally they settled.





43 to 67 percent against. The man stood again. "The Nai's have it, the Senate will not aid the Security Fleets in their operations, untill such a time as the senate takes a revote."

Sat in a dark briefing room, a holographic representation of a planet starts to float in the middle of the room, "This Gentlemen is the planet Bellona, it's sovereignty was acknowledged in 2065, They have asked for our assistance. Two months ago an extremist party started, their views were rather radical, intelligence suggests these views were in fact to raise an armed force and annexe several nearby systems. Bellona, relies on its neighbouring systems to trade food, as the planets ecosystem is unable to provide an adequate supply. Bellona does however have a very large deposit of precious minerals, and is able to supply enough raw materials to build two New Macross class fleets a year for the next 27 years." Captian Featherstonehague spoke.

Murmers could be heard going around the room at this point. The map zoomed out and showed the planet and its two moons, Leto and Asteria. "The fleet will defold here and proceed to an orbit around the planet, once in orbit several squads will be dropped to key positions and ensure they have good firm LZ?s."

"48 hours ago, the Secretary General received a communique from the current Bellonan government, In it he was asked to send military assistance to avert a civil crisis. Since then there has been no contact with anyone on the planet, we are first to investigate and ascertain the reason for the lack of communications."

Clicking the remote the planet zoomed in and showed a city. "This is the planets capital, El'Tab. A forward scout has already been deployed and should arrive within the next 3 hours, this fleet should arrive about 4 hours after that. The scouts Codename is Ranger Alpha. Upon our arrival squad will be despatched to these key locations," Circles appeared on the map near clearings outlying the city and open ground in the citys perimiter. "First squad will deploy here, Second here and Third here. Then you'll wait for further orders."




"Any questions?"

"Sir, what do we know about the extremist party, numbers and armament? Have the civilians been evacuated from the hot spots and if not do we know what is their disposition towards military aid?" the meltran with light purple hair standing at the back spoke. Her arms were folded in front of her chest and she seemed to have a permanent scowl creasing her forhead.

"It's been two months since this started? surely they sent any data gathered by Intelligence? even their neighbouring systems would've been concerned and tried to asses the situation before continue trading? have they informed us of anything?"

The captain strained his eyes to see who it was that spoke, but he knew instantly anyway from the voice, Sergeant Zharina. He then spoke up to be heard again, "All the intelligence we have so far suggests that they were unarmed rabal rousers, but support was strong in the working class communities it appeared. Intel did suggest they may of had access to small arms and low level incendiaries, but nothing with which to hold a city under seige. HQ are concerned with where these people got ahold of the weapons and equipment seen in the past 4 days, they beleive there may be a covert element behind this."

She grinned, so far it did not seem that complicated "Thank you Sir" she paused and leaned against the wall again as she asked one last question "Will you be waiting for Ranger Alpha's intel before informing us of the team assignments Sir?"

"Sir, no Sir!" Killia replied and as soon as the lights were back on, if nothing else was there to be discussed, she would be out of the room quietly but fast.
