All's fair in love and war (DECLARATION OF WAR!!!)

You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

<SECURITY FOOTAGE OF AREA 00852992230>
{DESCRIPTION:} At 13:00 an unknown scout trespassed in sector 00852992230. They were armed, and were mostly undetected until they set off an alarm.

Image

They wandered around, taking samples and scanning things. We are unsure but we suspect the spy was looking for military facilities.

Image

PRAETORIAN SCOUT: Hmmm.. very few life forms in sight, just some insects and a bird of some kind. Still,this planet shows signs of intelligent life...

IMPERIAL SOLDIER: Sir? Security breach in area  00852992230. It's a humanoid.
KALLUS: What? Give me a full report.

Image

IMPERIAL SOLDIER:Target is carrying an energy weapon, and seems to be heading due South. Should we send out a team to intercept?
KALLUS:Sure. Just send out some standard commandos.

Image

IMPERIAL SOLDIER:Yes sir. The only vehicle we have available here is an old Viper tank from the Alkerians. It's in remarkable shape, considering it's age.
KALLUS:Alright. Send them out in that. I'm going to send a report to Gree and Alkerith.

Image

*ALARM BELLS SOUND*
IMPERIAL COMMANDO: ALARMS! Move it! Move it! They'll brief us on the way. GO GO GO!!!

Image

Image

IMPERIAL COMMANDO:Into the tank! There's been a security breach. Command will send us the coordinates.
IMPERIAL COMMANDO 2: SIR YES SIR!!!

The tank headed to the site of the breach. They were told not to fire unless fired upon, and carried out that order perfectly.

Image

Viper tanks were used by the Alkerians before the crisis. Now only a few have survived, and they have been salvaged from wreaks. This one is the best preserved left, but even it is now a shadow of what it once was.

Image

IMPERIAL COMMANDER:There he is! Open the doors!!

Image

Image

Image

IMPERIAL COMMANDO:Hey! You! FREEZE!! HOLD IT!!!

Image

IMPERIAL COMMANDO 2: Didn't you hear him? Hold it! Wait, he's raising his-

Image
<WEAPONS FIRE DETECTED>
IMPERIAL COMMANDO 2:GYAAAAGH!
Image

IMPERIAL COMMANDO: SUCK ON THIS YOU GOD DAMN-

<WEAPONS FIRE DETECTED>
Image

In his rush to enact revenge, he did not check his aim, and the shot missed. His first mistake... and his LAST.

Image

The scout shot up into the air using a long range jetpack and fired another shot from his rifle.
<WEAPONS FIRE DETECTED>

Image

IMPERIAL COMMANDO:ARGH!!!

Image

IMPERIAL JUNGLE PILOT: He's making a run for it! OPEN FIRE!!!

Image
Image

The Viper tank, which had remained peaceful up until that moment let loose it's deadly arsenal of weaponry. No man could withstand the onslaught from it's guns. And the scout didn't fare to well either.
<WEAPONS FIRE DETECTED>

Image

IMPERIAL JUNGLE PILOT:Target neutralized. We'll bring the body back to base for analysis. Permission to bury deceased?
KALLUS: Permission granted. Take all the time you need.

<LIVE BROADCAST COMMENCING...>

Hiremas Alkerith: The footage I have just showed you tells how a scout from an unknown world landed on our planet and attacked OUR people. Our soldiers fired in self defence, and there is no doubt that the SCOUT fired first.

Image

Hiremas Alkerith: Analysis on the suit proved difficult, but we eventually got the information we needed. It was an experimental suit made by a certain "Praetorian Empire", designed for long range exploration of potentially hostile worlds. The tools he carried were very probably meant to be used for sabotage, and I ask you this. Why would someone go to a planet with peaceful intentions, while carrying a firearm?

Image

Hiremas Alkerith: After the attack an emergency meeting was held, and from it we concluded one thing. This attack was an act of war. Our scouts have also found "Praetorian" ships in the Magikallenic cloud, which WE discovered along with the Darkstorm Empire (Quietly sighs).

Image

Hiremas Alkerith: We know that the Praetorians are not native to the Magikallenic cloud, and are therefore trying to lay claim to it before we do. This will NOT succeed. I now ask that the leader of the Praetorian empire come forth, so that we may discuss this like men, instead of sending out petty scouts. I will also remind you that we see this attack as an act of war. I repeat, an act of WAR.

Yes, but perhaps the footage was tampered with, why else would Hiremas Alkerith be so quick to state that it was the scout who fired first,
surely he must know that the Nehellinium inhabitants are intelligent enough to see that themselves. Maybe he is trying to make it seem as though
the Praetorians are the evil agressors although it is him all along!

Can the gun aim upwards? Because on mine, it keeps flopping down and it's a bit annoying.

Exactly. It's very probable that the "Imperial" army rigged the security footage, as they want to keep the reputation of their soldiers high.

I should just clarify that Hiremas Alkerith never knew the footage was rigged, and would never do anything like that himself (He actually has very strong principles, and would not ally himself with the Darkstorm empire if the others hadn't voted him down). While he disapproved of the Imperial army's motives and found Gree to be *ahem* somewhat eccentric (But usually tolerable and an excellent tactician when sober). However, the truth was that the Imperials were frauds in every sense. What really happened (Probably) was that the scout was told to freeze, maybe one of the soldiers fired a shot trying to kill the scout, and got killed. Then from there things grew, and the Imperials didn't want to make their troops look bad. They'd also profited nicely from the war between Aldebraan and Alkeria, and thought that another war might further their money making. So, they rigged the security footage, and gave it to Alkerith to deal with. Which he did. By declaring war. Because he feels that such actions are unjust. And it means we can all kick ass.
