The Bakhacha Coup

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.

Post by Kastrenzo » Wed Aug 16, 2017 10:47 pm

Antares City, Elkoss. Capital of the Galacian Republik ... During the middle of Operation Schadenfruede in the Magenta Cluster

President Lahey sleeps in his room after a long day of work, and a long night of getting angry at the television...

Suddenley his TV turns on and a diplomat from the AN appears on the viewscreen.

Lahey wakes up, startled from the noise
Lahey: The fuck?

Mattis: Do you realize what you've done you drunken buffoon?

ImageIMG_20170721_200550 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Lahey: The fuck are you talking about? how'd you get my number, who the fuck are you?
Mattis: Damn it James, if you weren't such a drunk you'd know you've met me 3 times at the AN, I'm the lead negotiator of the Gold Cluster affairs..

ImageIMG_20170721_200621 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Mattis: You just started a war with the Imperial Magikstrate and M-Throne empire, what are you doing?! are you insane? we need peace!...

Lahey: I don't know what you're talking about I didnt do a fuck'in thing. I havent sent my troops anywhere...

Mattis: Galacian, Emerian and Kamchatkan ships not only violated the 45th union DMZ, But violated the Imperial Magikstrate's space territory... and if that wasn't enough, they launched a full scale ground assault on M-Throne outposts... Our intel tells us that your forces are winning.... congradulations... you FUCKING IDIOT


Mattis: .. . If you didn't, then someone else did, sounds like you've got a Rogue general on your hands Mr. President, Until you can get control of your people, I can't help you... Mattis out.

The viewscreen goes black

Lahey: *panicking* this is a fuckin nightmare!... who could have.... OH SHIT.. SHULGA!!!!

An hour later

ImageIMG_20170721_211617 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Rather than take hold of the situation and call for a meeting, Lahey has raided his booze cabinet and is now in the midst of his biggest sloshing of his lifetime

ImageIMG_20170721_211704 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

An assistant enters the room

Assitant: Mr. President we have a crisis on our hands we need you to get out of bed!


ImageIMG_20170721_211922 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Assistant: Marshal Shulga has called an emergency meeting at Bakhacha station and all top level government members are required to attend.


ImageIMG_20170721_212105 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Lahey passes out from drinking too much...

ImageIMG_20170721_212449 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

After drinking like it's his last day on this plane, Lahey's liver finally fails, and he starts coughing up blood and vomiting

ImageIMG_20170721_212553 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

His assistant comes running in

Assistant: DOCTOR, DOCTOR!

Meanwhile.. .

Several of the top military leaders and elected government ministers gather in the great hall of Bakhacha station, Marshal Shulga has gathered them here for an important announcement. Word has now travelled and many of the individuals here are aware of what went down on Arhus, and are expecting a briefing from the military commander on the upcoming war

Image20170722_004411 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Ernest Carville: Hey,miss Lahey., where is the President?
Sarah Lahey: I don't know, he should have been here by now, maybe the Marshal has him somewhere else just incase... The last time he attended a meeting with the commanders, Cherhovna Bryhada tried to kill him..
Ernest Carville: I wasn't there.. didn't know that

Image20170722_004837 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
After a few minutes, Marshal Shulga enters the room, escorted by the entire Bogatyr guard, which is extremely uncommon even for the Marshal, he ignores the crowd and he is behaving rather strange, striding towards his desk and his guards appear to be on edge

Captain of the Guard Zakharchuk: Take your seats!

Image20170722_005037 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Shulga takes his desk and stands at the podium
Marshal Alexander Shulga: Welcome.. Comrades and statesmen, as you have no doubt heard by now, our Navy has begun an assault on the Imperial Magikstrate, a small rather insignifigant world called Arhus in the extreme south... What some of you don't know is that this is a retaliatory strike for an attack that is still unknown to the public, Two days ago the Magikstrate destroyed a Military base in Outer Haven, for reasons unknown. We captured their leader however he refuses to speak, I'll be dealing with the bastard personally..

Image20170722_005142 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Shulga: However.. I have not gathered you all here today just to confirm what you already know.. As you may have noticed, our President is not in attendance... President James Lahey refused to act on the Outer Haven Incident, and he has since drunk himself into a coma... it is unclear whether he will make it...

Image20170722_005304 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The crowd murmurs in shock
Sarah Lahey: Oh my god!

Image20170722_005332 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Shulga raises his voice
Shulga: James Lahey is a weak worm of a man. he was barely fit to lead at all, and his neglegence and stupidity will lead us down a road of self destruction! our nation and our allies face tough times ahead, and our people need a leader, a REAL leader, a STRONG leader.

Image20170722_005719 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
He pulls out some kind of scepter, it looks like the hilt of his beamsaber, he presses a button on it
Shulga: HENCEFORTH, James Lahey is hereby removed from office as the president of the Galacian people, and I Alexander Shulga, through the right of my office, the blood of my ancestors, and the might of the armies I created for this country, declare myself IMPERATOR OF THE GREATER GALACIAN EMPIRE.
Some of the civilian government members begin to stand up from their chairs, as if to protest but they are immediately interrupted...

Image20170722_010328 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

On Cue, Dozens of Shock troopers flood into the hall and arrest everyone in attendance

Image20170722_010532 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Shulga: Stooges of the drunk.. you are relieved of your positions, The honorable men and women of our military will assist me in reorganizing the government to function as it needs to... after a brief... re-education. . .
