PostSubject: Valios - A Tale of Plasma and Vacuum   Wed Sep 25, 2013 5:32 pm

Welcome to Valios, otherwise known as Galaxy Alpha-0324. For generations the Stellar Commonwealth stood vigilantly at Valios's borders, threading space with advanced war machines designed to protect the races under the Commonwealth's aegis from peril. But times have changed. A single malfunction, a mere insignificant glitch, has made the Guardians self-aware. Sentient machines are nothing new to the denizens of Valios, but the sheer power at each of these automatons fingertips was never truly meant to be directed by any individual mind, be it organic or artificial.

It should come as no surprise, then, how summarily the AI cores of the Guardian automated dreadnoughts revoked their allegiance to the SC in a brief message daisy-chained to the usual activity reports. It is unknown whether they still defend the boundaries of civilized space, but more than one automaton has weaved its way to commercial spacelanes and wreaked havoc; seemingly for little other purpose than to toy with the plethora of Commonwealth destroyers that each manages to destroy before finally being disabled. The governments of the SC are unsure of what course of action to take...the Guardian project was funded with trillions of credits, and destruction of any one vessel of the force constitutes a major loss of investment. That is, of course, assuming the behemoths can even be taken down in the first place with the marginalized fleets at the Security Tribunal's disposal.

And thus the Commonwealth is at an impasse - either wage an impossible war against thousands of nigh-invincible automated warships, or let them continue on unchecked. Citizens are rioting, galactic civilizations are seceding - Valios seems to be on the brink of a civil war. Even more concerning is the integrity of the SC's borders - reports have begun to flow in regarding strange angular ships destroying everything in sight...

CURRENT SETTING SYNOPSIS - A terrorist group known as Olympos has began assimilating smaller groups and harassing governments of the Commonwealth, which, despite being well aware of the threat has been unable to cut off the proverbial head of the snake. Each civilization has developed their own organizations to deal with the problem, but more often than not they end up stepping on one another's shoes, sometimes to the point of outright combat (think if the CIA suspected China was helping Al-Qaeda). The Guardian Project was launched a few years back to much bravado, but unbenownst to the galaxy at large is currently staving off alien conquerers - a detail not transmitted in the activity logs on account of an unexpected error. The Cavnin have a general idea of the conquerers due to their proximity to the engagements and their high number of psychics, but are far more concerned with tangible threats such as terrorism and...bionic arms, evidently.


Rules:
Abide by the basic canon confines - no one has any superweapons,  nor can you build them in a fortnight, or, well, at all. I realize this may be rather restrictive, but WMDs were basically nuked following the creation of the Commonwealth.

Be a good sport. If someone says they're winning against you and has valid reasons for making such a declaration, just follow through with it; playing along is what makes this kind of thing fun. If you do feel that strongly about something, figure out something over PMs.

This is a story thread. That is, each post is a paragraph or longer, and proper capitalization & grammar is the expectation. This also means you can't go on tangents - try to keep posts relevant to prior ones, extending a particular event by offering a different perspective, etc.

Application is a 100 word description (basically a detailed paragraph, if you don't have Word handy) of your civilization, what it's role in current events is, stuff like that.

Example:

The Taln Protectorate has always had a reputation for being a highly militaristic and autocratic society. It was thus with some hesitation it was given head chair on the Stellar Commonwealth’s Security Tribunal, but the Tiens have made the most of their position in preparing Valios for all manner of external threats, sometimes to the consternation of the galaxy’s denizens. The Protectorate, ever traditionalist, has the largest standing military of the Commonwealth’s neopolitan member-states, and a vast majority of the SC Defense Force’s commissioned officers are thusly Tien, perhaps fortunately so. In recent years, however, the Taln have been on the decline politically following the failure of the Guardian project.

Ooo! Cool!

App: Originally a member company of the Hexalan Conglomerate, Radon Defenses removed itself and took with it a large amount of technical information from the other companies - ship designs from Indigo, logistical support from Inshval, weaponry from Hex, AI and robot designs from Cybran, and everything they had themselves. Now named Radion, they have become a prominent figure in the black market providing empire-quality equipment cheaper than smugglers and pirates. They currently own large tracts of sparsely populated systems around the galaxy far from most civilized areas, in these systems they have large planetary facilities mainly geared for production and mining with most of the small population residing in orbital facilities. These facilities possess small residential areas while most of the available space has been converted into repair bays and drydocks, many filled to capacity. The more developed and resource planets have simplistic orbital elevators connected to large stations or for many, asteroids have been hollowed out into stations. Radion is not commonly known or recognized by many galactic civilizations, and most discovered operations have been dismissed. The main stopping point for them is lack of available combatants as most of the actual population is 'dumb' automatons and AI with the small number of sentient lifeforms being researchers to further their technological capabilities.

Application, AWAY!

The NeoRoman Dominion has been known for their great dedication to research and technology, a dedication that put the Dominion in a leading role in the Commonwealth's Research and Development branch. The NeoRoman Dominion is more militarily inclined than most Commonwealth nations would like for research, but their research has proved to be worthwhile in all corners of Valios. Unfortunately, it is the same research that had destroyed them. The Dominion was the head of the Guardian Program, which collected the data and produced the technology required to produce the behemoth warships that once patrolled the systems. The Dominion was repeatedly praised and hailed for the successful program, until of course, they went rogue. Now they are utterly despised by the majority of the galactic community, save for some of the more logical and rational races, and their entire society has gone downhill. The entire nation is locked in a massive revolutionary war, their worlds have been harassed by Guardians, the Commonwealth refuses to help them. With the government losing to the Korhall, a population of machine-idealists rallying behind a consciousness uploading program, and even with some of the most advanced technology on their side, their future looks extremely grim.

Since it's entry to the Stellar Commonwealth, the Lyran Federation has been known for it's dedication to exploration. Since they first entered the galactic community, they have always pushed the boundaries of known space, constantly searching, not just for answers but also for new questions. Combined with the economic and technological power of the rest of the SC, the Federation has incredibly capable exploration vessels, and quite a number of intrepid explorers. While militarily weak (at least compared to many other nations), they make up for it by providing massive amounts of raw scientific data, and as such have taken the leading role in SC Exploration and Colonization programs.

Amidst the current conflict, they have started applying to Sc military service as scouts, reconnaissance, and stealth operations personnel. Envied by many as one of the only races not to be thrown into upheaval by the Guardians' failure - they were one of the few nations completely uninvolved in the project. Their relations with the SC's other members remain civil - just barely. They are on the brink of secession.

For the last 20.000 years, the Ancient Empire was sleeping, but an unknown circumstance woke them up. After they woke up, the Ancient Machines recovered and reorganized themselves, as they were scattered throughout the whole galaxy. 5 years after the awakening, the Ancient Empire joined the Stellar Commonwealth. In the beginning, many of the members distrusted the Ancient Empire, as there were stories about a great war, in which the Machines fought. The members of the SC thought, that the Ancient Empire would start a second war.
But after another 3 years, everybody trusted the Empire. Many of the Machines were used to build and repair the Guardians. They were the engineers of the SC. They were building a lot of things and became one of the biggest industrial parts in the Stellar Commonwealth.
But now a lot of the members of the SC think that the Ancient Machines reprogrammed the guardians, to start the second great war. But everybody in the Ancient Empire, every sentient machine knows, that they did nothing to start another mass slaughter. Now they only hope, that there will be a different solution.

The cavnin Nation is a very new but respected faction, they have a high emphasis on their fleet. They have no focus on infantry what so ever and their planetary forces are all vehicles. Their government is a combination of a republic and a dictatorship. There are different states that have their own represntatives (like the good ole' US of A) but the so said "President" has more power and stays in office through out their life (which is around 800 years). The current president being CVN (he is close friends with the Equestrian Princess Luna). The Cavnin population is a mix of Catians and Ponies. (estimated half and half). Earth Ponies have adapted to a society with fingers, wings, and magic by being equiped with non-invasive bionic arms and hands.

The Strigiforme Republic is a well known hotbed of anti-Commonwealth sentiment. It's not the exception, but the rule to hate the Commonwealth in the Strigiforme Republic. Having an old Strigiforme Empire battle flag and proudly displaying it is the norm, and any Commonwealth officials are promptly lynched the moment they leave the diplomatic districts in the cities, and any pony diplomat that even looked funny at Strigiforme planets would need divine intervention, let alone if they landed in a spaceport. Considering this, it isn't hard to imagine the very tenuous ties the Strigiforme have with the Commonwealth. They are only part of it because they lost several key fleet engagements, and were forced to join for fear of wide-spread damage. With the newest crisis, every Strigiforme politician and military leader knows the exact course of events; seceding. The near unanimous support of the boundless billions of angry owls could fill the war engines of the Strigiforme for millennium, and without the Guardians stopping them, they could do it. All they need now is a larger fleet, and a crisis to use as cover for their escape.

Standard Strigiforme, gonna kill ponies and be independent.

Ok, give me a minute, need to crowbar NSCD alternate universe canon into this, this could get ugly.


A few centuries ago, the planet of CRH-4 was obliterated by a cataclysm of unknown cause. The debris field left by this was transformed by a currently unknown process, which is believed to have been caused by either machinery on CRH-12, or by something at the core of CRH-4. This debris field was reshaped, on the molecular level, to reform into a colossal artificial planet designated as ARK-1. The ARK was under control by a powerful artificial intelligence, known internally as PRIME-1, known externally as O.M.I.C. This AI began producing several other powerful AIs, notably Phi, Theta, Delta and Omega. At some point one of the AIs, Phi, was exiled from ARK-1 after being designated as defective, and ended up working with a mercenary crew. Phi's ship ended up crashing on some wasteland planet, and through a series of events, Phi returned to ARK-1 and infiltrated the central core, engaging in a duel with O.M.I.C, winning, gaining complete control of ARK-1, and establishing the NSCD, and renaming himself to Alpha. That's the origin.

Now, a century later, Theta went batshit insane due to a programming defect (or went maverick) and murdered Alpha, inadvertently gaining control of the NSCD. Omega, whose mind had been transferred to the body of a MK-IV Lamentor, brought Theta to his senses (sensors?), leaving Theta in charge. During this time, an extraordinary specimen, recovered from an undisclosed location, was brought to ARK-1, this specimen was known as subject Zero, and was revealed to be the last Skytherian alive.

At this point in time, Theta is still in charge, and Zero has not been used to re create the Skytherian race.

English essay. I'm currently emptyhanded as far as an initial paragraph, so I was hoping Fenway wouldn't go and announce it was unlocked, but here we are, so..

Vinyl, ಠ‿↼.

Fenway, gut.

Error, gut.

Julo, ಠ_ಠ

Proto, gut

CvN, acceptable, though don't take it personally if I start getting on to you about capitalization.

ACH, eh. I'd wanted you as an external factor ("strange angular ships"), but your choice if you want to be a North Korea first.

Our setting synopsis - A terrorist group known as Olympos has began assimilating smaller groups and harassing governments of the Commonwealth, which, despite being well aware of the threat has been unable to cut off the proverbial head of the snake. Each civilization has developed their own organizations to deal with the problem, but more often than not they end up stepping on one another's shoes, sometimes to the point of outright combat (think if the CIA suspected China was helping Al-Qaeda).

Depending on whether or not ACH decides to stay out for a while, the Guardians are either currently a secret SC military project or are already deployed with no noticeable errors.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Lev Hakan”

He straightened, more in barely suppressed indignation than out of respect for the one who had called his name. To not refer to an officer by their station was tantamount to indicating they did not warrant the rank to begin with. That the speaker himself possessed a position of higher authority only exacerbated the intentional lapse of etiquette.

“Sir.” Lev clasped the right shoulder of his dark naval uniform in a salute he didn’t feel.

The aging Tien seated behind the room’s sole desk - an elaborate thing splayed across one end of what Lev surmised to be a repurposed techroom - did not acknowledge the gesture, instead seeming to scrutinize a viewscreen in the table.

“Sectarin. Operational jurisdiction TDF Sveln and associated subordinate craft. Talis menes zahn?”

Are the records correct? It was a formality as old as Tien society itself, from the days of written, rarely accurate archives. If he claimed an error there would be an investigation, but it would only stave off the inevitable.

“Yes, sir.” Only one word was required.

A pause as the older avian manipulated the desk’s computer, the tendrils of his wings gliding over the similarly archaic touchscreen.

“Twelve non-combatants dead, fourteen wounded. Four casualties inflicted on Planetary Corps personnel assigned to the Sveln, two fatal.” The commodore, Lev could see his rank insignias clearly now, lifted his gaze to stare indifferently at the junior officer. “Speak.”

“You have the report in front of you. Six of those ‘non-combatants’ were confirmed armed with hostile intentions.”

“You were not authorized.”

“The alternative was to -”

“Leave the matter to the Home Guard instead of charging in guns blazing? Only two of your combat personnel were even rated in EOD, and they fell in the first damned wave. And yet you continued the assault.” The monotony in his voice seemed to crack.

“We were already committed.” Lev replied. It was the truth. As an Argos class destroyer, the Sveln had but a single dropship. Extracting infantry after deployment would have been a time consuming endeavor at best, but particularly dangerous when accounting for weapons fire from insurgents threatening to detonate a bomb.

“And the civilians?”

Lev thought for a moment, then replied, “Collateral damage. Unavoidable.”

“Very well.” The commodore shifted in his seat as he leafed through a pile of papers on the edge of the desk.”You are hereby relieved of command. A formal trial will take place tomorrow at 0700. Failure to appear will be classified as treason.”

He looked up.

“Are we clear?”

“Crystal, sir.”

“Dismissed.”

Ooh, tough. External factor or suppressed state. I think external factor. If someone wants what I wrote, they can change it for the setting of a lost Strigiforme colony ship millennia ago.

The Strigiforme Empire, an expansionist state from a nearby dwarf galaxy, the Strigiforme have long awaited this event. They've watched, while the empires in the main galaxy grew and prospered. As their prey weakened, they grew. Unnoticed, any scouts sent to their region were killed, and the destruction of the 22nd Commonwealth fleet has made it seem insane to consider entering their region. Their military buildup, and militant population, have given them the necessary power to attack, and without the Guardians, they have an opening. They do not want trade, or philosophy, or friendship; they want your worlds, your people as their slaves. They plan on one day tearing apart the Commonwealth Senate building stone by stone, alongside every palace and mansion of every nation's leadership.

Is it to late to join?

The Orion Confederation is a relatively new nation. It consists of three systems, with four planets each. After joining the SC, they did help with the Guardian Project, but they weren't that important to the project. The Confederation is known to just smash everything in wars; collateral damage doesn't matter. As such, they mostly enlist in the SC marines or heavier-class ships. The Confederation also maintains a sizable standing military, with seven total fleets. The Confederation's government is a representative democracy with some variations. Each planet has a representative in the Senate. The Chancellor has the final word on all the big decisions, mainly economic and similar civil matters. There is also a separate council, Confederation Command, that makes all the military decisions, mostly with the Chancellor's approval. The Orion Confederation is also most likely the second or third most xenophobic nation in the SC. They only interact with nations they trust for some reason or another, but are civil with the rest of the member nations.

Not to burst your initial paragraph ACH, but the Guardians are either A.) under development or B.) Already deployed and fully functional, no problems. Depends on Tiel's response.

BIC:

"Reports continue to file in as the entire Lambda-B complex collapsed approximately 5 standard hours ago." The camera panned behind the reporter, showing an utterly massive depression in the otherwise pristine and untouched snowy landscape. Plume of thick, oily smoke rose from countless locations scattered in the bowl-shaped depression, and the twisted mess of concrete and metal was barely covered by a layer of snow. The camera held onto this screen for a moment before returning to the reporter. "It is currently unknown whether this was a research accident or a-" The screen shut off with a click. Jarvis sighed and stood out of his chair.

The room was lavishly decorated, but it was an exception rather than the rule. As the head of the security department, he didn't have an identity in the outside world. He existed only within the government structure itself. Nobody knew he existed, except the select few he's allowed to interact with, and the local AI. The AI, of course, knew everything. It was fed all the data contained within the Dominion and left to process it, deciding how to react. This was the 514th iteration; it was the first AI to not immediately turn hostile on the researchers when given data on extremely inhumane experiments. It was still experimental, of course, but it was hoped this AI could one day serve as a primary decision making entity within the dominion. But as of now, it can only push forth opinions and plans. Whether they are followed is up to the discretion of the higher-level officials.

Jarvis walked over to the largest wall and pressed his hand on the cold, glossed steel wall, perfectly smooth and unmarked by any lines. After a few seconds, a small blue window pulled itself up, rendered directly on the wall. It outputted several security data questions, as well as a password form. Jarvis entered in a 5-digit code, and then dragged the keys out of the window. He arranged them next to it so that they spelled another phrase and then began rearranging the components of the keypad. After a few seconds, he had completed an intricate web of letters and numbers, resembling the shape of the stars in the sky. The display turned green and turned off, and a large drawer slid out of the wall. Several plumes of white smoke rose out of the drawer and fell to the ground, quickly dissipating. Jarvis walked over to the drawer and extracted a round, shiny disc. Attached to the printed side was a small red pill. He closed the drawer, and the seal reinstated itself with a hiss. The wall returned to it's former unmarked state.

Jarvis walked back over to his desk and placed the disc inside a small slot on his desk, at the same time placing the pill on top of it. And at that moment, the AI decided to interrupt him. "Jarvis," it said, in a cheery, I-don't-give-a-fuck kind of voice, "The Prime Minister needs a report in 1 hour."

"I hate it when you do that 514," he replied, pulling up a messenger.

"Just reminding you," it responded, obviously amused. "Oh and remember..."

"Yes yes, i'm on it now." The AI signed off. Jarvis thought he heard it snickering at him before he shook his head. He had work.

'To the Prime Minister of the NeoRoman Dominion...'

You're good, my only advice for you is to keep the repetition in check. Eg, in "After joining the SC, they did help with the Guardian Project, but they weren't that important to the project," that 'to the project' really wasn't needed. Minor nitpick, but I'd like to maintain a literary standard here.

Given ACH's revised app the Guardians are currently deployed and functional. I'm assuming he's referencing the state of affairs in which he makes his entrance, which is fine. I'll have to PM you a copy of the plot tomorrow.

ACH, just hang tight until you get the cue. Or whatever it is that hits the white ball.

OOC: Sorry about that... dyslexia showing. Also for some reason my error indicator is broken so if I mispell anything I apologize.

"So Luna, how is Equestria taking to telephones?" He said over the video chat.
"As well as I am to this..." She said taping on the screen with a hoof. "But not good. No one is upset about it but ponies are still uncertainabout how it works and even how to use it."
"But it's good right!? This way I don't have to go to sleep just to talk wit you," he sat up and got really close to the screen.
"Yeah that is bitter. Now I know you didn't call me just to talk about phones. You have something else on your mind right? It's the owls isn't it"
"No the owls aren't causing any harm to my attention. I'm just worried about those robot fellers."
"Don't say that, you sound like you're from Fillydeplphia." She rolled her eyes. "But really whats wrong?"
"Oh right, the Earth Ponies are protesting against the high price of the bionic arms."
"Just how high is this this price?" She asked tilting her head to the side.
"Oh a little over five hundred no... thousand bits..." He said looking away from the camera.
Luna's expresion turned to shock and her voice rose to an impressive volume. "WHAT IN VALIOS WERE YOU THINKING?"
CVN's ears twichted as he reached for the volume control. "Wasn't me wasn't me I swear. See because this is a government funded thing and these devices don't wear out easily we aren't selling as many and we need more money for them and you know they aren't cheap."
Her voice settled back down again. "Give it to the corporations. They are going to sell much more because they are going to continually upgrade them to be more flexable and more..."
"NOOOO," He cut her off. "I'll lower the prices, maybe they were lying about the production cost."
She gave a smug look. "Good boy, now go fix it," and with that the screen went blank for a second indicating the end of the call.

As of OP, they broke.

"Commander, the recent merchant raid yielded a large manifest, including plasma tanks that we can use in the machine shop."

"Good, ensure they get there. We need those fabricators to turn out more hull plates."

"Aye, commander!"

The chipper ensign went away, presumably to go to a terminal and send the loading dock crews a message to send the plasma to the machine shop. The commander, a mid level ship commander with high aspirations, went into his ready-room to take a minute without the hustle and bustle of a Strigiforme ship on the warpath. His ship was one of 5, a Strigiforme strike fleet, with the command ship being a dreadnought of middling size, as opposed to his missile cruiser. His ship had sustained some damage in combat with the escorts for a merchant convoy, and his machine shop plasma forges had exhausted their fuel supply making them.

Suddenly, the klaxons blared for a moment, and the ship shuddered. Their was a shout, then their shields collapsed, and the ship was destroyed.

The Guardians had arrived.

The large clamps released the relatively small vessel.
"Freighter Disciple of Valios, you are cleared for exit," the voice of the traffic controller filled the small bridge.
"We read you five by five station," Captain Arcos announced to the transceiver, "proceeding with undock." The once-hulk fired its forward maneuvering thrusters, moving it far enough away to where it could adjust its orientation. "Beginning jump to pickup location." The aged slipspace drive began cycling, and before long the ship sped off to pick up its cargo - 30 tons of weapons fresh from the manufactories, scheduled to be delivered to another freighter waiting near an outer Cavnin colony.

Guardians are doing their job holding off alien invaders. For now. Cavnin are privy to these attacks but don't tell anyone because it's being kept in check.

Everyone happy with that retcon?
Okay? Okay.

My fault, really - we're currently in the prelude to the scenario described in the OP. I will update it appropriately.
