Quote: Mysterious transmissions have been picked up coming from an asteroid belt in the second system. The signals are garbled and don't match any known frequency. The UTF is deploying a frigate to investigate.
Event number: 2Edit
Location: Cronus, the UTF’s largest military base on Saturn. A giant floating military complex that cost trillions to develop. Lieutenant W. Hall a former commander of a UTF frigate is meeting with the most senior figure in the UTF military, Commander in chief C. Allen Riley. Hall is the only survivor from a UTF investigation into alien transmissions emanating from the second system.
Riley: Welcome to Cronus, lieutenant. The finest jewel in our crown here.
Hall: Thank you sir.
Riley: Now to business, I’ve read the reports you’ve submitted but I want to talk to you myself. Your expedition launched 3 years ago, was… unsuccessful.
Hall: That’s one way of putting it.
Riley: Of the 456 crew, you were the only survivor simply due to the fact you had been in the toilet when the ship was destroyed. The ship detected the damage and fired the toilet into space. Interesting safety feature, but it appears to have worked. Why were you not at your post?
Hall: Well, it had been up to that point a routine investigation. The signals had stopped transmitting, I had been on duty for over 19 hours, we had all been using our stims and it had been Chili night.
Riley: God, I forgot about the Chili they served. We have to scrap that, for combat effectiveness reasons. Anyway, as the “compartment” that you were inside ejected, you were able to watch the ship through a plexiglass screen. What did you see.
Hall: The frigate, was consumed slowly. Little spheres of it just vanished, until the whole ship was gone. I’d estimate that the spheres ranged in size from 2 to 15 metres.
- Hall gets up and prepares to leave Riley’s office. As he turn around, Riley draws a service pistol and executes him by firing 3 silenced rounds into the back of his head.”
Riley (talking into his cuff): Get me cleanup, we’ve dealt with the last incompetent loose lead. Tell Captain Jameson to proceed with taking the prototype corvette to the asteroid belt.
