"They were a disgrace." She stated. That Vyrassu, an individual with no prior association, no claim to the Sith throne, would arise out of the blue with his band of heretics and dare to falsely claim himself leader of the Sith - especially comparable to Kaine, who she had known and watched grow from the early days of his time within the Sith sphere. Vyrassu had been exterminated, his empire had been exterminated, and whatever good remained from the Jen'ari having been burned away and amalgamated within the true Empire. She paused for a moment, considering the latter words. "A valid point - that said, we should never allow them to feel the concept of comfort. To stir the pot, to force them to further imperialize over their traditionally laissez-faire citizenry, will harm the citizens' faith in their so-called 'benevolent' Jedi masters."

 

The latter had hardly stung. "My affairs with the Mandalorians were hardly diplomatic, admittedly. I assisted the Mandalorians in their unfortunately failed defense of Eshan, assisting as I was obligated to by our association with them. After all, it is better to keep the tiger satiated than starved in order to maintain its devotion." She replied. "The clans have been, of our allies, the most devoted to the Empire, willing to assist when others were unable to - or when they desired not to." She retained her composure.

 

"Besides, it was a chance to test some of my latest equipment upon appropriate enemy forces."

Vanessa would get upon her knees on the step in question, attempting to sit comfortably. She had chosen a simple pair of gold-embroidered robes for this occasion - the robes provided her with a surprising deal of comfort. Kaine's welcoming response was at least appreciated to a degree, and she was rather pleased her hikikomoric nature had not evidently given the Emperor reason to presume any disloyalty. There was nothing to gain from such, after all, as her former apprentice had previously showcased.

 

"A degree of frustration." Vanessa answered him. "I have been running my forces through exercise after exercise and providing segments of my gestalt assets to various offensive campaigns. While great casualties have been inflicted upon our enemies, I am disappointed at the lack of a concerted effort to exterminate, enslave, or otherwise turn to our allegiance those within the Silver Jedi Order, as well as to those remaining Jedi elements from the Alliance. I have the men, the equipment, and the necessary resources to inflict great harm upon them, but no operations have as yet been authorized - hence my playing military diplomat with the Mandalorian clans."

It was rare to see Vanessa in attendance at the average Sith social. Reasons varied for this - from her planning for acts of aggression against the enemies of the Empire to development of new technology allowing her to better harm said enemies when she confronted them. But with the recovery phase now in place after the ORC assault on Sith territory - an assault that was truthfully unexpected and for which Vanessa had certainly not planned a response to - it was time to begin scheming for a response. Vanessa would head over towards the throne, intending to perhaps have a conversation with the Emperor while others indulged in their thirst for enjoyment.

 

After all, she had been there and done that.

Vanessa would continue to crush on the corvette as though it were a tin can. The destruction of such a vessel would, one would certainly hope, at least discourage their associates from getting any closer for fear the Sith would actually turn their guns on their compatriots. As it currently stood, it was 120 fighters against 200 bombers and fighters - bombers and fighters that would have their targeting systems disrupted as well given the broad-spectrum effects of the EM probes. This would making locking on to critical systems of any of the XoXaans difficult.

 

The approach of the X1 corvette persuaded Vanessa to change her target, once more sparing the crew of another one of the ships as she focused on it. Unsure as to whether there was a secure communication channel the corvette had to the pilots that was not stymied by the jamming, perhaps on some special ultra high frequency band or using some unusual technology, she focused on the other vessel and began to squeeze on it, having given herself a brief moment of respite. Crushing vessels with the power of the Dark Side, even mere corvettes, was not something she had regularly done, even during her time in the Unknown Regions, though she had done it before.

 

The XoXaans would shift the fire from their solar ionization batteries to the squadrons as they were at long, then medium range. While the weapons were hardly as capable as the anti-fighter beams typically found on one of Vanessa's ships, they did possess shield-piercing capabilities and as such could prove problematic to the enemy fleet. Visual targeting systems would allow for at least some degree of accuracy against hostile targets. The fighters in question, ignoring the qualifications of their pilots as the Empire's finest, were also incredibly powerful - five squadrons of Eightgun-class assault fighters and five of Forge-class interceptors.

 

The Eightgun was, as its name suggested, a fighter possessing eight primary weapons - the HL-7 xaser weapon, to be precise, a weapon with a higher rate of fire and effective shield-stripping capabilities in concert with slightly below average hull damage and modest subsystem damage. Its firepower was the greatest of any vessel available in the Sith Empire, great enough to effortlessly cleave through even a heavy bomber. The Eightguns would take lead, being backed by the Forge-class interceptors. While not designed for speed or gifted with heavy firepower, the Forge possessed extreme maneuverability, allowing it to turn within any fighter or bomber its opposition possessed.

 

The squadrons of fighters would stay near the capital ships, waiting for their prey to come within close range. Each Eightgun would have a Forge located behind it, ready to snap around and get any ship off the back of the assault fighters in question if it came into the area. For the time being, as Vanessa crushed down on X1, the XoXaan IIs would continue to fire at M1, albeit with reduced damage potential given their solar ionization batteries were not unloading on it.

The Heresiarch was beginning to recharge its larger weaponry, both its forward gun and starboard guns. The secondary weaponry of the Heresiarch would continue firing upon the Rigor, while the secondary forward-mounted weaponry would fire at the Verdict as well. The battlecruiser would shift position to bring its portside weapons to bear on either of the other two remaining vessels - whichever one came over into place first.

 

The corvettes, two of which were destroyed, would essentially get back to back in groups of four and one group of three, allowing them to defend each other from attacks by the swarming escorts and ensuring their backs were always defended by another corvette. This would allow them to fire off shots with their SBeams at the passing enemies and focus their baradium missiles on incoming corvettes.

The two battleships would jump in, launch their pods, and immediately open fire with broadsides from their LRBBeams at close range on the sides of the enemy ships. The pods would smash into the bridges of the enemy vessels, with some dumping troops in elsewhere. The Dark Troopers and their variations would immediately exit the pods, beginning the intrusion - they just needed to capture Ki herself.

More ships within the ORC fleet were beginning to retreat. This was good, even as EM interference from the satellites came upon them. The pilots of Crimson Command were skilled in handling themselves in such an environment - many of them had fought over two decades ago against foes in the Unknown Regions, and those that had not had been picked from the best of the Imperial Navy's pilots to join such fleet units. The fighters would organize themselves into diamond-shaped superformations by squadron, allowing the rear pilot to keep sight of any obstacles to the side and reducing the chances of collision. The XoXaan IIs would continue to bombard M1, and with the 'mysterious weapon' having forced frigate K2 to retreat from the immediate field of battle, Vanessa chose to relax and instead focus on doing the same to the corvette designated X2. As a corvette, the required power usage to attempt to crumple the vessel's vulnerable locations was an order of magnitude less, but still great - great enough that Vanessa was still in a kneeling position on the bridge, eyes closed as she focused on trying to rend the corvette into a pile of scrap.

 

The engineers of Crimson Command were working on a solution - such was to utilize sensors of the Corrupter to broadcast the virus from earlier into one of the jamming platforms, which would then rebroadcast it to all other non-Sith IFFs within the immediate area. The disruption of the EM field would soon become minimal, the satellites becoming little more than space debris plinking off the particle shielding of the Imperial fleet as it advanced. M1's engines sputtering had left it as prey, and the XoXaans would turn to bring more of their weapons to bear at moderate range, still attempting to close the gap.

The Heresiarch was a monstrous warship, and it did not intend for its prey to escape so easily. The ship turned to keep its UBeam facing the Verdict, a UBeam that was now fully charged and ready to fire. And so it did - the immense green beam of plasma mimicking the fire of such warships as the SovereignEclipseConqueror, and the original Heresiarch which this ship was named after. How much damage to the battlecruiser it would do was uncertain - the capabilities of such a ship were hardly clear after all. The captain of the Heresiarch did not, however, ignore the threat of the oncoming Star Cruiser - a threat which would soon be dealt with by the Heresiarch rolling to bring its side-mounted LRBBeams into play as they would target and fire at the ship. Side-mounted weapons fire from the Heresiarch's missiles and smaller beam cannons, along with its other weapons, would move to strike the Rigor, while its forward-mounted weaponry would assail the Verdict.

 

The oncoming horde of destroyer escorts would soon be met by a slightly larger group of incoming ships - ships which Vanessa had rarely brought out. These vessels, Massassi-class corvettes, were premiere corvette-killers - at range they would charge their SBeams and each individually take a target, engaging it with their forward weapons as well as their ordnance launchers - each of which in this case had been loaded with a magazine of seeker baradium missiles. Their anti-fighter beams would begin to strike the fighter squadrons working in concert with the enemy corvettes, hopefully denying them the opportunity to save their larger peers from danger.

Enemy: Kimiko Taiyo

 

The two battleships had been rush-identified, as had the individual responsible for them - the wife, evidently, of one Dax Fyre. Apparently a leader within the ORC, possessing his wife as a hostage would be beneficial for Vanessa in the long run. The intricacies of their relationship could be further studied, and Vanessa could utilize such intricacies against him during their next confrontation. From long range, a pair of Saturn-type battleships, the offensive variant, were preparing to shock-jump within range of the Nagato and her sister ship. Vanessa was unsure as to what vessel said woman was on, and as such had a Saturn filled with drop pods primed for both of them. After the calculations were done, the ships would jump in at exceptionally close range to the enemy battleships - nearly collision range - and begin to launch boarding pods that would head towards the bridges of both vessels. Incapacitating the ship's command center was paramount, after all, and if Kimiko could not be found on either, it would buy the Darktrooper teams time to penetrate deeper into the ship and find her.

 

What would happen upon penetration would be a different story, but the boarding pods were full of the finest Dark Troopers Vanessa could put forward - there were several bloodtroopers, with powered dark troopers, Oppressor-16 automated dark troopers, and a dark trooper commander as well. The force making the incursion was highly skilled and highly armored. With luck, they would succeed at their mission with minimal casualties.

The Nebula disappeared. Vanessa had expectations as to what would happen soon - it more than likely had jumped away and would soon be reorienting itself to come in at another vector - a shock-jump attack, similar in form to what Vanessa's own Saturn-class vessels had at one point utilized. Vanessa had her doubts that the Nebula II had a shock-jump system utilizing multiple backup hyperdrives to allow for such surprising hyperspace maneuverability, but her crews were ready all the same. As it was, she began to focus once more, this time on one of the frigates. She had eschewed the lightsaber in exchange for great power in the Dark Side - power that she was attempting to utilize to take the frigate and rend it apart.

 

The XoXaan IIs would form up and showcase their broadsides to the Majestics. Now it was time to take the SBeams and put them into play - five balls of plasma would charge and five beams of green energy would arc across space, likely hitting the first Majestic. Beam weapons were always precise, something Vanessa appreciated - while the ships were no longer able to bring the fullness of their solar ionization and pulse cannons into play, the focus of fire on a single Majestic would hopefully have more of an effect. At these ranges, the SBeams were some of the few weapons capable of accurately hitting such a target.

Enemy: Dax Fyre

 

For Dax, there was a different enemy to fight. One that was yet another portion of Crimson Command itself. Out of the voids of space, the Sovereign Elite-class Battlecruiser Heresiarch would materialize. Having been refitted from its original form as a standard Sovereign, the Heresiarch had been specially modified and designed to function as a dreadnought-slayer, a vessel that both on its own and working in concert with more of its kind would be able to eliminate a dreadnought-scale warship belonging to any hostile faction opposed to the dominance of the Sith Empire. The captain of the powerful vessel, a veteran of decades of service under Vanessa during her time in the prior Sith Empire, through the Unknown Regions, and now once more under the reorganized Sith, would aim his vessel towards the ORC ships and immediately charge its UBeam up.

 

The UBeam was a devastating weapon. One such weapon was more than capable of causing great harm to a ten kilometer dreadnought, and here was the first target - a three kilometer battlecruiser of what the captain could only assume was a standard ORC type. There had been little intel given to Maldrood forces before they were rushed to this system to assist in its defense, but he could only assume that it was a dangerous vessel, one that needed to be targeted. The UBeam was still charging, and the ship's other forward weapons were being readied to strike the fore of the ship.

Are you actually participating in the space battle? I saw you had put up a post with the Space Engagement header, but didn't see a fleet list or anything like that. Being TSE's only fleeter in this(apparently), I'd love to engage with you in this invasion, but I don't even know what you have or what lengths you're using so I can match it.

Crimson Command would surge towards the fleet, scattering somewhat itself. The Sceltor and Corrupter focused on engaging the Nebula-class vessel that served as the flagship of this small-scale fleet, each vessel moving to flank the ship and trap it between the two so it could quickly be reduced to ashes. Each remaining XoXaan II chose to directly engage one of the Majestic-class vessels, the vessels pushing spare reactor power to the engines in order to increase their pursuit. This was a deliberate move on their part - upon entering medium range of the vessels, they would open fire with their whole hoipolloi of weapons, with most firepower coming from the solar ionization cannon batteries joined by the occasional inaccurate fire of the pulse cannons. The SBeams were not in a position to blast any of the vessels with an appropriate broadside yet.

 

The fighters would for the time being remain close, not wanting to be engaged by the corvettes and frigates whose anti-fighter defenses could cause them harm. Vanessa would order two things to occur - the first was that a variety of potent technoviruses, crafted through a combination of Sith sorcery and the most skilled of Imperial software manufacturers, would be readied for transmission to the enemy ships. Said viruses would wreak havoc on the enemy fleet - but first the XoXaans were scanning the enemy vessels and determining what transmission frequencies, for ship-to-ship communication as well as for other sensor-based or utilitarian purposes, were open. The second was that Vanessa would close her eyes and focus on the bridge of the Nebula-class ship, trying to sense who the captain was. If they were a Force-sensitive, this trick probably wouldn't work, but if they weren't... there was a potential way to break up the enemy's plans early in the fight, before they had the opportunity to gain momentum.

It was Crimson Command that would be entering the field of battle, or rather a section of Crimson Command. There were ten examples of the modified XoXaan II-class Star Destroyers in service, and currently five of those were on the field of battle, preparing to engage their hostile compatriots. Vanessa Vantai, the infamous Sith Lord who had done her best to strengthen the alliances between her home power and the allies of the Sith Empire, was aboard the Sceltor, currently serving as the ersatz flagship within this squadron of vessels.

 

There were several methods of attack Vanessa wished to consider pursuing. For the time being, however, her ships would launch their squadrons of fighters - each was carrying a squadron of Forge-class interceptors and one of Eightgun-class assault fighters - and they would remain within relatively close quarters. The XoXaans would slowly move towards the hostile targets - there were multiple smaller ships on the enemy side, and Vanessa, while unfamiliar with ORC ship designs, certainly had expectations regarding these vessels and their capabilities. The Crimson Command XoXaan II design possessed shield-penetrating solar ionization cannon batteries for medium range brawling, as well as dual heavy pulse cannons for closer ranged pulverization of targets and a pair of SBeam light beam cannons - one on each side of the ship, intended to gut corvette and frigate-scale warships at even long range. Such would only come from a broadside, though, and right now they were more directly facing the target.

Posted by Vanessa Vantai on 23 March 2019 - 07:17 PM

The wave of vessels would soon come within medium range of the Ssi-Ruuk fleet. Laser cannons, mass drivers, energy torpedoes, and a wide variety of secondary armaments were being unleashed, but the longest ranged weapons of the alien horde were also capable of engaging the fleet as well. Some vessels were beginning to take moderate damage already - these ships would ease back and allow other parts of the fleet to absorb the fire in their stead. The mighty UBeam of the Heresiarch would charge up and open fire once more upon what appeared to be a Star Destroyer-scale Ssi-Ruuk ship, cracking the vessel amidships and reducing it to a couple chunks of rubbish within the voids of space.

 

Meanwhile, behind the 'barricade' the fleet had formed, Vanessa was contributing to the clash on the ground as well. Transports were dropping all over the planet, transports containing Dark Troopers, both living and machine. The cyborg veterans of the Imperial army, some of whom had decades of experience, would soon disembark from their ships and form into their basic elements, engaging the enteched constructs and Ssi-Ruuk infantry on the world's surface. Oppressor-16 Dark Troopers would stand their ground as they marched forward, driving back the alien horde and securing space for them. The radtroopers had not been called on for this mission, as Panatha would survive this, thus ensuring that radiation did not need to be used on the planet at all. The bloodtroopers, Vanessa's elite, were on the surface as well - they were engaging attacking Ssi-Ruuvi droids and ground forces near the capitol, where Kaine's uncle was located. The entirety of the Maldrood's forces were in play today.

Hopefully their battle would not be in vain.




#1925697 Scalebound (Downfall)

Posted by Vanessa Vantai on 22 March 2019 - 09:52 PM

A sigh crossed the lips of Vanessa Vantai as she observed the mass of ships gathered at the fringes of the Panatha system. Rarely did she bother mobilizing the Maldrood's naval units to an entire degree, but this was very much an exception to the rule. The overwhelming mess of Ssi-Ruuvi that had swarmed the First Order and utterly eviscerated them now came towards the Emperor's home planet, and Vanessa had no intention of allowing them to take it. While not one to believe in the carefully concocted lie that Kaine Zambrano had turned into a god, Vanessa had no intentions of letting a planet full of the Emperor's kin be extinguished - not when so many of them were devoted to the Imperial cause.

 

So it was that the Void Irregular Fleet, Crimson Command, the various Maldrood irregular units, the fleets Vanessa had great influence in, and the Sith experimental task force were all gathered, advancing against the oncoming tide of enemy vessels. Still at Nathema were the reserve ships, along with the various Sovereign Elite-class Battlecruisers. Only Heresiarch, having been upgraded to such a standard during its refit after the clash with CIS forces during the Battle of Eshan, represented the design on the battlefield today. Vanessa's reports did not indicate that any dreadnought-class warships were going to be participating - and if so, the Saturns were more than ready to duel with them.

In their individual units, the fleets would begin to slowly advance as a giant wave against the horde of invaders. Vanessa commanded the battle from the Ablution and already the various warships would engage the outer perimeter of Ssi-Ruuk vessels with their beam weapons, several corvette and frigate-scale ships falling to their firepower.

 

This was certainly going to be a fight to remember.
