Flight of the W.U.N.D.E.R.

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

Flight of the W.U.N.D.E.R.

T.L.A. headquarters and W.U.N.D.E.R. construction facility, Refuge...

Image
President Bob the Unbuilder: "Our fleet units are already engaged over New York, but so are everybody else's. They're not gonna be able to hold out for long. If we want to get our revenge, we have to launch the W.U.N.D.E.R. right now."
Captain Fury: "Are you sure? This ship may be complete... sort of... but we still have months of testing to do before it even leaves the dock. We can't just take it to New York and start wrecking shit -"
Bob: "Fuck yes we can!"
Captain Fury: "Dammit, I walked right into that one."

Image
Captain Fury: "Anyway, who's going to fly this crazy thing?"
Bob: "You are."
Lieutenant Hawkins: "Oh god. Are you kidding me?"
Captain Fury: "Heheheheheheh..."
Lieutenant Hawkins: "We're going to crash the first time he tries to land!"
Bob: "Then it's a good thing we only have to make one trip."

Image
Captain Fury: "All right, men... initiate, uh... activation... startup... sequence. Right."
Lieutenant Hawkins: "Y-yes, sir."

Image
Lieutenant Hawkins: "Activating projection display. Switching onboard controls to flight mode. All crew stand by for launch."

Image
Lieutenant Hawkins: "Beginning S2 Engine activation sequence. Commence power feed from base reactors. Spin up the flywheels."

Image
Captain Fury: "Shit!"
Lieutenant Hawkins: "Primary power conduit 2 is down. Switch to backups 11 and 12. Flywheels at maximum rate of spin. Stand by for S2 engine activation..."

Image
Lieutenant Hawkins: "-Now!"
Captain Fury: "Holy shit!"
Lieutenant Hawkins: "S2 reaction is self-sustaining."

Image
Captain Fury: "Output is still climbing... how much power does this thing have?"
Bob: "If the scientists are right? All of it."

Image
Lieutenant Hawkins: "Open the docking clamps. Configure AT-field for gravitic repulsion."

Image
Lieutenant Hawkins: "We have liftoff. Secure for flight and deploy maneuvering veins."
Captain Fury: "You mean vanes, right?"
Lieutenant Hawkins: "Nope."
Captain Fury: "Nevermind. I just decided I don't wanna know."

Image
Bob: "Head for New York at maximum speed. It's time to finish this."

I can make this man. I can let him touch the butt. I cannot promise his safety

Oh man, what a glorious flagship. I love the feathered wings.
I make apocalypses and apocalypse accessories.

Basically, yeah. My idea was that the center hull is the corpse of an Angel with some cybernetics, and the outboard pods are mostly mechanical. Someday I'll post pics of the underside with the Core other details. It's based on the Wunder from Eva 3.0.
