Chapter 2- New Threat...
The allied forces landed in base Cape Canaveral in Florida prepared to be debriefed in a mission well accomplished. The reign of terror has
ended and the soldiers were free to return home to family and friends relieved that their long awaited victory has come. That same week a new threat
arrived from space. Long range sensors picked up a large array of enemy vessels headed towards Orion’s belt. From the look of it, this oncoming race
did not come here for milk and cookies. Each ship was heavily armored and even heavily armed. Earth’s forces did not have the recourses to fight
this Space Armada and seeked help from other races, but with no avail.
The idea to use nuclear weaponry came into mind, but it seemed crazy. Why blow up what you worked so hard to protect? The ETA of the oncoming
armada was 2 years and 3 months. In that time, a fleet of ships needed to be designed and built. It did not seem plausible, but everyone was
determined to accomplish this, they would do what ever it takes. The next month designs were submitted and accepted. Make shift shipyards were made
from naval bases and factories to make the collassul space force to battle the enemy fleet. Dropships would also be needed to invade the ships and
blow them internally for a faster and quicker destruction of the alien ships. Designs for forty foot tall mobile suits to combat enemy fighters were
under construction as well.
A year and two months later, the first of twenty-three ships were launched. It was a destroyed class ship and carried several mobile suits. The
mobile suits would be called liberators for they would play a key role in protection Earth from certain destruction. The destroyer was designated the
Skipjack. It took low orbit of the Earth’s atmosphere awaiting the arrival of the rest of the fleet. Six months later, eight more destroyer class
ships were launched, completing the fleet. The capital ship was the only dreadnought in the entire human fleet, it was designated the Scorpion. The
Human fleet was comprised of 8 destroyers, 1 dreadnought, 6 cruisers, 3 battleships the Hotel, the Echo, and the November. The rest of the fleet was
5 carrier ships that sacrificed weapons for armor and liberators.
