Nation: Khucht Khanate

Overview: The Khucht Khanate is an elective monarchy centered around the Khucht System. It is led by a Khan, an absolute monarch chosen for life, and their Khural, the Khan's advisory council. Mainly focused on expansion and industrial development, it uses its robotic workforce and high population to great effect.

Government:
The Khucht Khanate is an elective monarchy led by a Khan (as the name implies), the current one being Gerhard Zima. This Khan is chosen by the Khanate's people after the previous one dies. The new Khan then rules for life until he dies too, after which the whole process begins anew. A very strong emphasis is put on the knowledge, skills and qualifications of the elected monarch.

While the Khan technically has absolute power, the day-to-day governing of an expanding space empire is far too much for one man to handle. In this, the Khan is helped by a advisory council called the Khural, which advises the Khan on what to do, sometimes even taking the actual governing into their own hands, with the Khan's permission. While the Khural is normally chosen by the Khan after they are elected, these always include members of the military high command, statesmen, and powerful business leaders.

Below the Khan and their Khural are local governors, that take care of the governing of a system or a planet.

The small Khaganate fleet dropped out of its SPS translation into a battle. Destructive Sporn weapon energies cut across the cold and vast darkness of space, colliding with the Quatis ships. The Khaganate fleet emerged in a roughly ellipsoid formation, with its twenty military vessels on the outside, protecting the small group of civilian ships within. They had been dragged here unwillingly, and Admiral Schmidt had sworn to protect them until his last breath.

"No damage detected, Admiral, it seems that the Quatis shields are strong enough to hold back the weaponry of those alien vessels."

"Then let us hope that ours will as well. Admiral, they're preparing for a second assault, and this one will be even stronger than the first!"

"Status report," Admiral Schmidt ordered. He was one of the few on the bridge to remain completely calm in the face of these seemingly overwhelming enemies. The recently promoted admiral had been in many battles before, even as just a captain. I hope I'll be able to lead a fleet rather than just one ship, he thought.

"The hostile vessels have chased us here from our previous position, sir. The Quatis have changed into a circular, defensive formation. One of the small ships that was in the system has been teleported into what could possibly the Quatis flagship. The hostile aliens are indeed preparing for a second assault. All our weapon systems are ready, and our shields are fully charged."

ADMIRAL, Erwin could hear the robotic voice from the AIR core in the KSS Capek say, ACCORDING TO MY CALCULATIONS, OUR SHIELD SYSTEMS SHOULD BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND THE SECOND ASSAULT, ALTHOUGH ENEMY WEAPON ENERGY LEVELS ARE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THOSE OF THE FIRST ASSAULT

Chaos erupted in the bridge right then as Palin's message came in, and the subsequent confirmation that the Quatis' energy levels were spiking as well. Admiral Schmidt frowned. Who do these Quatis think they are, he thought angrily.

Still, he gave the order for all ships to fire at will. In mere seconds, the Khaganate ships opened fire. Khan-class Dreadnoughts rolled, aiming their auto-ballistic cannons at the Sporn ships, shooting a powerful broadside barrage of shells and superheated plasma packets as the Khaganate ships slowly continued moving forward. Khaganate battleships and dreadnoughts fired their torpedoes, attempting to destroy any Sporn ships flying in front of them. Laser and particle beams shot through the void, crossing the gap between the Khaganate and Sporn ships at relativistic speeds. Massive Gauss and Kinetic turrets fired, propelling ultradense projectiles towards the enemy ships using gravitic launchers and supercooled electromagnets, careful to avoid friendly fire. Point-defense turrets and laser grids stood ready as the shields were fully charged, ready to protect the Khaganate vessels against enemy attacks. Between it all, large swarms of fighters, bombers, and other, more exotic and powerful strike-craft flew. While they wouldn't be able to attack the Sporn ships due to the imminent capsule shielding, it was still a good exercise, and would help if the Sporn would send out any of their own fighter craft.

Of course, in war, and especially battles in space, supply and logistics are important, and while many Khaganate ships are capable of producing their own ammunition, the importance of space battle logistics generally goes for the Khaganate as well. Normally, the Khaganate fleets have specialized, military support ships for those tasks, but unfortunately those are not present. Luckily for the Khaganate fleet however, several civilian ships were transported together with the military vessels as well, and those were quickly converted to provide the support the Khaganate vessels would need.

None of this mattered for now though, for as soon as the Khaganate assault had died down, the Quatis erected their capsule shield around both fleets.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The shockwave reached the KSS Aqua in moments. Even though it was no small ship compared to many of its fellow Second Fleet ships, it was still shaken vigorously. Captain West looked to her left, just in time to see the Khan-class dreadnought KSS Krieg disappear into a micro-wormhole of its own making. Many of the more advanced and powerful Khaganate ships had the ability to make very short wormhole jumps, which they can use to quickly traverse the battlespace. In this case, however, the wormhole tunnel was closed from the shockwave just as the Krieg had entered, meaning that the Khaganate Second Fleet had effectively lost that ship.

Yet, the shockwave apparently had another effect. It somehow caused a black hole to appear on one of the planets in the Phantom Point. Luckily, captain West was as brilliant as some of the other scientists on the bridge, and a quick thinker as well. She immediately ordered to charge up the ship's wormhole generator, and then to use the spacetime folder and Exotic Matter Scaffolding Device to stop the black hole's growth. Since Khaganate wormhole are really just black holes that are tunnels, using the wormhole generator to stop the black hole from growing would work, was her reasoning.

The ship continued on its course until it suddenly started to slow down. Captain West could see that the other ships around the Aqua had also slowed down considerably. A simple scan revealed the issue: a ribbon-like entity that was made out of light. This issue got considerably worse as the outer planet of the system they were in blew up as soon as the entity touched it, and continued on its way towards the star.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The Khan sat back in his throne. He was slightly overwhelmed by the events that previously happened almost at the same time. First, vice-admiral Knaggs, and even more surprising, the long-lost general Anderson, had appeared on the bridge, fully nude, and in pain. Then, a massive wormhole opened up, engulfing the fleet and bringing them to an unknown location. Only seconds later, the Khan received the message that general Nurzhan had returned, from the general himself.

Now, the entity Fanny May was standing in the bridge of his ship, after casually walking through a wall. The Khan was used to governing a nation, not being a character in a space opera, so it was somewhat understandable that he was a little overwhelmed. He saw her do away with Dino Gavon with a mere flick of a hand. Then, as she put all of the crew on the bridge in some sort of stasis, Fanny started monologuing. As soon as Yuri saw this, he opened his mouth to speak, but found that he could not find his voice, and so remained quiet. The Khan listened intently as he heard Fanny speak of destroying the strange aliens they just met. Whether she meant the Quatis, of which Admiral Gavon was part of, or the strange, yet unnamed aliens from the cylinder he did not know. She mentioned his people that had been abducted, so the Khan assumed the latter option.

Again, the Khan began to speak, but again, he could not, and so he gave up as Fanny finished her speech. Then, she blinked out of existence while the bridge crew snapped out of their stasis. After giving an order NOT to try departing the wormhole they were in in any way, the Khan stood up from his throne and made his way to the sick bay as fast as he could.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The Khan arrived in the medical bay as fast as he could. Given that he, as the Khaganate's Khan, had access to every available form of transport on the ship, this was very fast. He ordered the doctors to give Katie and Jens all the treatment they would need, and got himself a chair to sit down on while he waited for them to wake up.

The small research robot from the KSS Aqua approached the hull anomaly. As it did, it could see that the bulge had practically disappeared. The scientists assigned to its controls were visibly disappointed as valuable research data had gone down the figurative drain, and into the very real spaceship. Sadly for the researchers, however, the robot would not be able to get into the hull breach, as it had been tidily sealed by the automated breach-seal systems of the Khaganate. (These breach-seal systems work much like how a human body would repair wounds. At the first sign of a hull breach, a 'scab' would be made by the shield generator systems of Khaganate vessels, shielding the breach and making sure that no pressure loss or further damage would happen. Next, the Nanite auto-repair systems would
efficiently repair the breach, closing it completely.)
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
@Hokum
As usual, it took some time for First Gamma Palin to respond. Captain Schmidt started considering his options on what to do about the hull anomalies. It was then that he received the message from the Sporn. Quickly recognizing the message as a threat, he ordered:

"Power up all available weapon and shield systems! Surround our civilian ships with military vessels. Set status to red alert and summon all crew members to battle stations", Erwin said, speaking as admiral of the fleet, rather than the captain of the Nova.

The twenty-nine Khaganate ships became a flurry of activity as men and women ran to their designated battle-stations. Engineers checked the weapons, shields and other systems to make sure they were ready as soldiers and marines gathered their equipment to prepare for any hostile boarding actions. The civilian ships raised their shields and point defense weapons as the Khaganate Navy ships encompassed them. Fighter and bomber pilots got in their strike-craft, preparing to launch. The only areas devoid of activity were those that had been affected by the hull anomalies. All ship-to-ship traffic had shut down.

"Shields are raised and weapons are fully charged, captain. All systems are nominal, except those in the affected areas."

"Admiral, I detect hull breaches on all fleet ships. It would seem that these breaches are at the location of the hull anomalies. The Quatis fleet is also suffering from the same hull breaches. The automated breach-seal protocols have negated the pressure loss from the breaches, but they are still present"

"Activate Nanite Repair Systems on all fleet vessels. Make sure every vessel is fully repaired before we get into any conflict."

"Captain, I received a message from the Quatis fleet," the officer in charge of communications, who had not completely come to terms with Erwin's sudden change in demeanor.

After those scant few minutes in which so much had already happened, the Khaganate fleet finally got Palin's response. Captain Schmidt listened intently, his mind racing as he heard of the assault on the Quatis fleet.

"Captain, I can confirm what the First Gamma said," the Communications Officer stated, "A group of unknown objects are currently in transit towards this star system."

"Rendezvous with the Quatis," the captain ordered, "and charge the wormhole drive while we are en route. Make sure to target a nearby star system so we can make a quick escape if needed. We are only here to protect the civilian ships and get back to the main fleet, and we can't do that if we're dead."

"Captain, hostile ships approaching! Their weapons are being charged and they're trying to surround us. They should be visible on the main screen now."

Admiral Schmidt looked at the main viewscreen, and indeed he saw the centipede-like ships from the Sporn approaching the Khaganate fleet.

"Set course for the Quatis, NOW!"

The Nova's propulsion systems roared as they started to move the ship towards its destination. The other ships in the Khaganate Secondary Fleet started to move as well. Spacetime itself was bent and curved as the Khaganate fleet activated its Superluminal Propulsion Systems, or SPS, (a way for Khaganate ships to travel faster than light in-system, works by expanding and contracting space similarly to an Alcubierre Drive) to move even faster towards the Quatis fleet.

"Do we have anything capable of boarding other ships at the moment?"

"As far as I can see, captain, all we have are boarding pods, MCES mechs, and dropships. No stratocruisers are currently present, so that's all we've got, and there's only a few of them. We also have teleporters, but we wouldn't be able to conduct large-scale boarding actions with those."

Admiral Schmidt then replied to Palin:

"First Gamma Palin. We're coming over to you. Do you need help taking out the robotic entity on your science vessel?"

Only a few minutes after the admiral had given the order to travel to the Quatis fleet, they had arrived there, the curvature of spacetime returning to normal as the SPS was turned off.

Luckily for the Omega Order soldiers that were busy investigating the strange hull anomalies, the breach that had recently formed in the general vicinity had already been closed off almost instantaneously by the breach-seal shield. Moreover, the very brief and sudden change in air pressure they had experienced was completely negated by the magnetic boots and the powered exoskeleton beneath the rest of their uniform that were a standard part of Omega Order task force equipment.

The leader of one of the first Omega Order Task Forces to arrive at the area they had been sent to, Sergeant Marica Tanner, raised her hand as soon as she saw the man. The Omega Order soldiers halted in their tracks. They kept their hands on their weapons, just in case, but didn't immediately aim at the civilian. Marica scanned the entity, confirming its identity as one of the civilians that had already been evacuated from that particular part of the ship. Something strange is at work here, Sergeant Tanner thought, there's no way that they would've just left someone behind. Unless....

"Operation Command, this is AXE-1. We have discovered a male civilian in containment area B-7. Curiously enough, this civilian has already been evacuated from this area, so we know that Bravo-Six was succesful. The entity shows no life-signs. We suspect that somehow some kind of entity present in the hull anomaly replicated the appearance of this particular civilian, but we are not sure. How do we proceed? It is clearly anomalous, but it's not acting with any hostility either."

"Try to approach it and see if it communicates. Only use violence in the most dire of circumstances."

Marica raised her hand, waving at the civilian. "We are from the Omega Order," she said, "who are you?"
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
@Hokum
"Operation Command, did you get that? The entity claimed itself to be a god," James noted.

"Positive, PA-1. It is as we suspected earlier," Operation Command replied.

It was then that the ship suddenly started to shake again, like it had before when they tried to recontain the entity. While the powered exoskeleton they wore underneath would've normally prevented the Omega Order soldiers from being thrown off balance, this time the ship shook so hard that the task force Phalanx Alpha had difficulty staying upright, and James feared that the ship would break if the shaking continued for too long.

Sgt. Maleski could do nothing as he saw the entity phase through a wall and escape. "Operation Command, we've lost the entity. It phased through a wall. Current location unknown."

"Understood. We'll try our best to find it again and recontain it. Get some rest in the meantime."

Where the hell am I now?, former general Katie Anderson thought, I feel like shit. General Anderson tried to remember what had happened, but all she could remember was being strapped to some kind of table.

The darkness all around her made way for the light as power was restored to the bridge of the Genghis. The former general felt her legs collapsing beneat her, too weak to stand up. Is this the bridge of the KSS Genghis? she thought, as she quickly catched a glimpse of the surrounding environment. What happened to Arman? What happened to the other officers?

Ouch, that hurt. Katie felt someone pick her up and turn her over. I have no idea who this is, the general thought as she looked at Dino He doesn't look like he's from the Khaganate. She tried to raise her arm to punch him so he would stop holding her, but was ultimately unsuccesful as she was too weak. Can't even hit someone when I want to. What happened to me?

"Admiral Gavon, please let go of my general." Katie heard from somewhere to her left. She turned her head to look at the source of her voice. Of course, my Khan is on this ship too, and those men standing beside him must be the Kheshig. Katie looked the other way. She could see the vice-admiral, Jens Knaggs, laying down on the ground, hands on his groin with tears in his eyes. Luckily, one of the crew members was already calling for medical aid.

As the ship started to shake and Dino was knocked on his back, general Anderson's attention was drawn to something far more interesting. She could see three cylindrical spaceships pull away as a strange crimson wormhole opened near the Genghis, sucking in the ship. Immediately, all hell broke loose inside the bridge as the ship started to move like a boat entering rapids in a river and subsequently falling down a waterfall. The automated balancing systems of the Khaganate ships could do nothing to compensate for the turbulence. It took only less than a minute before the Khaganate fleet was sucked in.

"Status report," Katie could hear Khan Yuri order from some distance behind her.

"Uhh, Sir, it appears that two of our missing officers have arrived on the bridge, and our fleet has been sucked into a wormhole of unknown making. As far as I can see, none of the ships are..."

The person speaking got no chance to finish as one of the many screens in the bridge started broadcasting a signal coming from the KSS Borealis. On the screen Katie could see a bearded, white-haired man kneeling, with his clenched fist on his chest, showing his loyalty to the Khan. Arman! Katie thought He must've made it back to his stratocruiser after I disappeared. She could see a very brief flash of surprise in General Nurzhan's eyes as he saw her and Jens, but that went away quickly as he directed his eyes to Khan Yuri.

"Gur Khan, I have returned, and General Anderson is here apparently as well. I have reclaimed leadership of my Army, and we are at your command."

The Khan, who still stood up from the amazement he had when General Anderson and Vice-Admiral Knaggs had suddenly appeared on the bridge, let himself fall back down to his throne. "Of course, General Nurzhan should appear as well. Stand up, no need to kneel at the moment. Right now we're in transit to an unknown location by a wormhole not of our own making. Get ready for any nasty surprises that might be awaiting on the other side."

Katie saw Arman give a small nod before the broadcast ended. It was at that moment, to all of the surprise of the bridge crew, that Fanny May walked out one of the walls of the bridge.

"You're pregnant!" was the last thing Katie heard before she blacked out.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
@Hokum
The medical personnel hurried away, carrying General Anderson and Vice-admiral Knaggs on stretchers. Khan Yuri Lanist was fascinated by the new arrival. He had ordered the Kheshig to stand down, but they still looked at Fanny visibly uneasy. "Contact all ships in the fleet, order them to be ready for anything that could be on the other side of the wormhole," the Khan quickly said before turning his attention to Fanny.

"So, you must be Fanny May," the Khan said, "What business did you want to discuss?"
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The general of the 7th army of the Lanist Khaganate was exhausted. Only now did Arman Nurzhan realize that he had not eaten or slept since he and Katie had escaped from the medieval planet that they had been stranded on after the Khaganate fleet mis-jumped. He left the room and went to his quarters to get some rest.

On the way, he met Legate Septima. "Sir, what are your orders?" She asked. Legate Aquila Septima was the general's second-in command, and he entrusted her with carrying out his orders in the way she saw fit. It was one of the reasons why she was chosen to be general in his place while he was gone.

"Make sure the ship is ready for combat," Arman replied, "We are in a wormhole that is not of our own making. We need to be prepared for any eventuality. Tell the captain to warm up our own wormhole generator in case we need to jump out."

"Understood, sir, there was also something else I wanted to discuss."

"What is it, legate?" Arman asked, without his usual stern demeanor.

"You've changed, General. I notice that you don't speak with the usual lack of emotion or disregard for that of others. Why, if I am allowed to ask?"

"Several years of solitude do that to a man, Legate. But that is a story for another time."

Erwin Schmidt, captain of the KSS Nova and newly promoted admiral of the Lanist Khaganate Second Fleet, the small splinter fleet of the Lanist Khaganate that had been transported to its current location through unknown means, silently looked out of the bridge window of his ship, with his arms crossed behind his back. It had already been a few minutes since he had sent the message to the Quatis, and they had received no reply yet. The captain peered into the black void of space, contemplating what to do, nervous that the reason that the Quatis were taking so long to respond is that they were making preperations to attack the Khaganate fleet.

"Any changes?" The captain asked.

"A new ship has arrived in the system and is currently engaging the ship with the temporal distortions" the same communications officer as before replied, "The Quatis have not yet sent a reply, and none of the other ships in the system have attempted contact either."

"Captain," a science officer by the name of Yakim Ignatiev said "It seems that the AI onboard the civilian robotic ship KSS Capek has rebooted and subsequently determined that all contact with the main fleet is lost. I am patching it through now."

"GREETINGS ADMIRAL," Schmidt could hear a very monotonous voice say through the speaker, "I HAVE DETECTED DATA AND POWER LOSS ON ALL FLEET SHIPS. I HAVE ALSO DETECTED A LACK OF OXYGEN AND OUTER HULL ANOMALIES ON ALL FLEET VESSELS. ANALYSIS REVEALS THAT THE POWER THAT WAS LOST IS SOMEHOW PRESENT INSIDE OF THESE AREAS. CAUSE UNKNOWN, BUT POSSIBLY BIOLOGICAL IN NATURE. I HAVE ALREADY SHUT DOWN THE POWER AND DATA TRANSFER TO THESE AFFECTED AREAS."

"The AI is speaking the truth," the science officer said, "I can indeed see multiple instances of power failure, and oxygen loss on all fleet ships. What do we do, captain?"

"Broadcast an emergency broadcast, and then implement protocol Bravo-Six. Evacuate all civilian and military personnel from these affected areas with all means necessary. Use OOTFs if you have to, make sure everyone is accounted for."

The science officer then went to work doing just that while the communications officer prepared to connect the ship's communication systems to all speaker systems in the rest of the fleet.

"This is an emergency broadcast," the captain began, "Protocol Bravo-Six is now in effect. Power and oxygen failure detected across all ships. All affected civilian and military personnel are to report to their nearest medical facilities. All unaffected crewmembers are to report to battle stations."

The communications officer then received a reply from the Quatis and notified the captain, while maintaining the link to the Quatis fleet, for Captain Schmidt's eventual answer:

"First Gamma Palin, I confirm that we are losing power and data at an alarming rate, although we likewise do not know where this comes from. I accept your offer of mutual assistance. Our research into this strange phenomenon will begin right away."
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Slowly, all of the affected civilian and military people have been evacuated from the affected areas, while all of them who were present when the phenomenon started occuring have been cataloged to make sure that no one is left behind. Those who had been affected by a lack of oxygen have all been taken to the nearby medical facilities. Due to the actions of the AI responsible for power maintenance, all of the power to the areas affected by the sudden power loss has been cut off, whether it came from the backup power generators present of these areas or outside. Several task forces from the Omega Order, the secretive Khaganate organization dedicated to combating the unknown, have been sent into the affected areas to investigate the cause. Equipped with advanced technologies and oxygen equipment, they do are not bothered by a lack of oxygen.

Meanwhile, the science ship KSS Aqua has sent a robot outside to examine one of the bulges on the ship's hull.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Arman Nurzhan, general of the 7th army of the Lanist Khaganate Army, calmly walked down the ramp of the transport craft with slow, heavy steps. His expression was emotionless as he looked at the crowd of officers, soldiers, engineers and doctors that had gathered around the vessel. They stared back at him, looking extremely shocked, as the Khan had held a memorial service for him and general Katie Anderson only hours before. The crowd moved away as Arman reached the hangar floor. Aquila Septima, Legate of the 2nd MCES Legion, who had seemingly taken command of the 7th army in his absence, stepped forward.

"Legate Aquila, have you taken charge in my absence?", General Arman asked her.

"Yes, I have, Sir," The brown-haired woman responded, "I was voted to become the new general by the leaders of the other tumens and MCES legions of the army after you had been classified as Missing In Action and subsequently pronounced dead by none other than the Khan himself."

"Good to see he still cares about me. I want a full report of what happened while I have been gone, Legate."

Did he just make a joke? Legate Septima thought, That can't be right, he never does that. "While your ship had apparently vanished from the fleet, the Khaganate fleet started orbiting the planet that it had appeared over. Signs of life, as well as the two missing ships, were detected from this planet, but we never suspected you and General Anderson had made it out alive. As a result, after about a day of waiting, the Khan officially announced to the rest of the fleet that you had died, despite not knowing what had happened. The fleet also jumped to another system, where we encountered several strange cylinders, which cut off the propulsion of our ships. Meanwhile, I was elected to be the new general, which you are now I suppose. Additionaly, 29 ships have gone missing due to an unknown cause, and many officers have also disappeared. We have yet to identify who has gone missing on the Borealis.

Maybe that's what happened to Katie, general Arman thought. "Thank you, Legate. Please get the ship ready for boarding actions. I have the slightest feeling that our military officers have been abducted by these strange cylinders. I will go talk to the Khan while you do that."

With that, the General left to his chambers. After clothing himself in a proper general's uniform instead of the spacesuit he'd been wearing since he had taken off from the alien planet, he made his way to the room that he would use to attend the Kurultai, as well as contact other ships.

The captain of the Kheshig, a blond man named Brandon Sparks, was of course not pleased with the fact that the strange man had not dropped his weapon the moment he ordered to. And he, in contrast to the many other bridge crew who had been focused on the screen that had played the message of the Director of the Omega Order, kept his focus on the stranger dressed in armor. As a result, the guards that had originally tried to apprehend the stranger kept their attention on the strange man, making sure that he would not do something dangerous.

After the man, who identified himself as Dino Gavon, got the chance to speak to Khan Yuri, Brandon's patience soon wore thin as Dino refused to give away his weapon. "Have I not made myself clear? Drop your weapon, now!" Brandon ordered.

"Captain Sparks," The Khan said harshly, not appreciating what the captain was doing, "Calm down. This man is our guest, and I do not want him to come to harm on any of our ships."

Now, Khan Yuri turned to Dino, and said: "Admiral Gavon, we have indeed been affected by the same Quantum Dislocation Event that placed you in my ship's bridge. As a result, twenty-nine of this fleet's ships have vanished. We do not know the origin of this event, but our best scientists are currently working on it, so whatever is there is bound to have some answers. I too believe that we can lend eachother assistance at this time."

James almost got the chance to contact Operation Command about the telepathic message from Fanny when he was suddenly overwhelmed by the entity's rapid change in character. However, the Omega Order soldiers stood their ground, weapons aimed at her head should the need arise. Meanwhile, any civilians remaining in the canteen ran away, scared of Fanny's booming voice. James and his team then were forced to drop their weaponry as their weapons became red with and started to radiate incredible amounts of heat. Naturally, the team then drew the variety of pistols and other sidearm weaponry, and aimed them at Fanny, as they were trained to do.

"PA-1, this is Operation Command. We heard that, what is going on there?"

"AE-1769 has become aggresive, and demands that she can see the Khan. From what she is saying, as well as the abilities she has shown so far, I believe she is some kind of god."

"Well, we've contained gods before. Continue with the recovery."

James then turned to Fanny, saying: "I will do no such thing, AE-1769, please follow us to your containment area or we will be forced to open fire."
