The air around Rick suddenly turned against him.


He was flung backwards, his helmet nearly slipping out of his arms as he struggled to maintain his footing. As Rick recovered and put on his helmet, he clicked a small button on the back of his metallic right leg. Immediately, suction cups sprouted on his prosthetic feet, meant to provide an excellent foothold in extreme wind and currents. Consequently, the next two pushes sent Rick back a mere meter instead of multiple.


"Well played." commented Rick before beginning his counteroffensive.


He drew his right hand down to his belt, grabbing his sniper rifle and swiftly lifting it out of its sheath. Putting the rifle in both his hands, Rick enabled the close range iron sight, a beam now traveling in a straight line in front of the rifle. With increased visibility, Rick would be able to react rapidly if his instructor attempted to flank him. Half a second after choosing the sight, he aimed and fired, seeking to hit her firmly in the chest.

Rick entered the room slowly, his armor covering everything but his head.


His helmet resided under his right armpit, kept off his head to maintain an initial formal appearance. On a belt built into his armor lay his sniper rifle, Shieldbreaker, and his lightsaber, Tidal Wave. Shieldbreaker was only filled with stun bolts today, as he would not want to turn the head of his instructor into a ruptured balloon. However, Tidal Wave remained as lethal as ever. Rick would take extra care into not inflicting any permanent wounds.


Seeing an armored human woman nearby and identifying her as his instructor, he quickly introduced himself.


"Hello there." said Rick. "I'm Rick Kaloo, and I'm interested in refining my combat skills so I can back myself up where water is scarce."

"Sir, the enemy is firing!"


Hardly a second after the gunnery officer on Pickle Rick's bridge called out the enemy's retaliation, the ship's shielding lit up as turbolasers impacted it.


"Fire every weapon we have. Charge the Demolishers, and then fire them too." replied Rick.


"Targets?" replied the gunnery officer.


Rick hesitated for a moment, scanning the battlefield for any New Republic ships that had been spared from the Confederate fleets. Before his eyes, a new battlegroup emerged from hyperspace, reinforcing the New Republic effort.


"Them. Lock four Demolishers on each flagship, and one per heavy cruiser. Distribute all other armaments as you please." ordered Rick.


At once, multiple hundred turbolasers came to life. Taking mere seconds to acquire targets, a fearsome barrage of plasma rapidly soared from Pickle Rick to meet its enemies. The shots were coordinated and highly structured, with the largest turbolasers firing on the largest ships. At the same time, a barrage of missiles rocketed above Pickle Rick, before curving in arcs to intercept the larger New Republic vessels.


On the very top of Pickle Rick, ten cannons the length of heavy frigates shifted into place, their colossal barrels pointed at the New Republic vessels. They began to charge, absorbing the energy necessary for them to fire corvette-sized rounds with incredible accuracy from dozens of kilometers away. Once they fired, the damage would be devastating, depriving the support fleet of all its heavy vessels and leaving the rest as easy pickings for Pickle Rick's heavy turbolasers.


"Two minutes until the Demolishers are charged."

Pickle Rick had arrived to provide powerful enforcement for the blockade.


After nearly twelve hours in space, Pickle Rick's annoyingly slow hyperdrive had dropped the ship off in Kuat. It was followed shortly after by six experimental corvettes with unique AMS guns capable of directly repairing structures in space. Seeing the space in the vicinity to be safe, the corvettes broke away from Pickle Rick and headed towards the ruined orbital stations to repair as much as possible.


Pickle Rick loomed over nearly every other vessel in the blockade, its physiological presence alone creating significant reinforcement to the Confederate presence. Its largest guns, the 500-meter long Cerrus-class Demolishers, remained inactive, but ready to be unleashed apon enemy retaliation. But Rick put firing Pickle Rick's primary armaments low on his agenda. He was holding a blockade, not launching a counterattack. There would be no need to provoke the Republic forces unless they launched the first attack.


"Primary power to shields and ion weapons." ordered Rick. "Hold position and do not fire turbolasers unless absolutely necessary."


"Also, keep transmissions open. If we're lucky, we can negotiate for the local Republic forces to leave."
