"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

JULY 1, 2020 - 20th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION AT ALL-CON DALLAS 2020

The GUNSTAR TRIREME Has  Completed her Shakedown Cruise around the Colonies,and Is Preparing Jump Co-ordinates to Rendezvous with the Battlestar Raven to Begin Her Escort Duties:

"SHIP'S LOG"

"We have Just passed Virgon,and are Prepping Jump Co-Ordinates to Join the Battlestar Raven; So far, Other than A couple of Minor Glitches,Ship and Crew have Performed well; Scored 87% Efficiency at the Fleet Gunnery Range; Not bad for A Rookie Crew;With time,It will Get Better....."

(Call From CIC)

"CIC to CO"    This is the CO,Go.   " Sir, We've come across A Civilian Freighter..There's A Interesting Development you should look at."   On My Way.

(Trireme CIC,2 Minutes later)

OK,Bunny,(Trireme XO)What we Got Here?   " Sir we have Colonial 5523-D,formerly registered with the Aerelon Transport Consortium, Fully Loaded."   OK,What's Strange About it?

"According to Colonial Shipping Registry,Their Shipping Permit Expired One Year Ago." Hmmmmmmm.....

"And, as Soon as we Entered their Contact Range,They Increased Speed."

How Far are They?    "20 Kilometers,now Moving at Half Flank Speed."

OK, Their Permit Is Dead,and, They're Still out here Running Cargo;  That IS Interesting!

Ens.Doyle,Increase Speed To Intercept Freighter; Tusker(MARDET NCIOC MSGT.Brian Allen), I Need two Raptors with Marines Ready to Launch in Ten Minutes.  "On it,Sir!"

DeeJay(Comm.Officer Rachel Fish), Hail the Freighter,Tell them to Stop and Prepare to Be Boarded. "Yes Sir."

        "COLONIAL 5523,THIS IS THE GUNSTAR TRIREME;YOU ARE ORDERED TO STOP AND PREPARE TO BE BOARDED,ACKNOWLEDGE."

  "No Response,Sir."      Have they Stopped,Faceman(Trireme Tac/Ops Officer Mike Ursiny)?  "Nope! Still Running at Half Flank."               Really? Patch Me Through,DeeJay.       "You're on,Sir."

COLONIAL 5523,THIS IS TRIREME ACTUAL; YOU HAVE BEEN ORDERED TO STOP;WHAT PART OF THAT DID YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?

"Sir,Tusker Reports MARDET Raptors Ready for Launch"      Very Well; Are they Stopping?

"No,Not only are they Not Stopping,They've increased to 3/4 Flank!"   Oooooookay!

Faceman,ARM MAIN FORWARD BATTERY,Target Their Engine Only!

COLONIAL 5523,YOU ARE ORDERED TO STOP NOW! IF YOU SPOOL UP YOUR FTL,YOU WILL BE FIRED UPON,SO GO AHEAD AND TEST ME!!

How About Now?   "They are Slowing Down..........Aaaand They are now at dead Stop."

THANK YOU;NOW, PREPARE TO BE BOARDED; HAVE YOUR PAPERWORK AND LOG READY; MUSTER YOUR CREW AMIDSHIPS;ACTUAL OUT.

LAUNCH THE MARDET RAPTORS                    "Raptors Away,And En Route,Sir."

Faceman,Keep Their Ship Targeted.         "In the Bullseye!"

( TWO HOURS LATER)

"Sir,Grizzly Bear(Platoon A Sergeant) Calling."  This is Actual,Grizzly Bear,What did you find?

" Not A Surprise,Sir: No Paperwork,and, All of their Holds Crammed With BUNK PHARMACEUTICALS!"

You don't Say?     "Yes Sir! Right Now,I'm standing In a Hold FULL of  FAKE Chamala Extract! How do I Know? I had A Good Friend who Took The Real Thing;It Looks NOTHING Like This!"

Any Word out of the Captain or the Crew?   "No Sir;Just Sitting here like Temple Mice;Awaiting Orders,Sir."

Stand By,Grizzly Bear.                  DeeJay,Contact The Virgon Patrol Authority; Let them Know we have Customers for them,and Are Holding them in place Until They arrive.              "Roger that,Sir."

Faceman Says "There it Is: Our First Catch!"

Not Exactly what we were looking For,But it Qualifies!

Great job Colonel Leonidas!!! Kick butt and take names!!!LOL I wish they tried to use their FTL to get away. The Trireme would have had another round of target practice to increase percentage up to 100%. Oh well, maybe next time.
