The Beginning

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.

The Beginning

Post by Theblackdog » Sun Nov 10, 2019 2:00 pm

Part 1

Image
T.L.A. ships flee the shattered remains of New York.
Chrome: "What's our plan now, Captain?"
Captain Fury: "That depends on whether we can survive the end of the universe. I don't know what it's going to be like..."

Image
"But I doubt it'll be pretty."

Image
Image
Image

Image
Lt. Hawkins: "Captain, sensors detect some kind of energy wave! It's coming from directly astern. It's massive!"
Captain Fury: "This is it! All ships, brace for... Fuck! I dunno what, but brace for it!"

Image
Lt. Hawkins: "Signal from the De Laval has been lost!"
Chrome: "Captain, there's some kind of gap in the energy field. It's not much, but it's our only chance."
Captain Fury: "I'm going for it!"

Image
"COME ON!"

Image

Later...
Image
Captain Fury: "Was that... it?"
Chrome: "So it appears. I'm detecting new stars and planets forming at a massively accelerated rate."
Captain Fury: "Did... did any other ships make it out?"
Lt. Hawkins: "No capital ships. Some fighters and shuttles. I'm signaling them to form up with us."

Image
Chrome: "There appears to be a planetary system with a habitable world ahead, Captain. Scans show no signs of civilization."
Captain Fury: "Finally some good news. Let's claim it and start re-establishing the T.L.A."
Lt. Hawkins: "Captain, with our remaining shuttles, it'll take forever to get everyone down to the surface-"
Captain Fury: "Don't worry, I have an idea."
Lt. Hawkins: "What-"
Captain Fury: "All crew, brace for re-entry!"
Lt. Hawkins: "Ulp."

Image
Captain Fury: "Huh, this looks like a pretty nice planet. Good find, Chrome."
Lt. Hawkins: "Can we concentrate on not dying please thank you-"

Image
Chrome: "So what was your plan for the actual landing, captain?"
Captain Fury: "All crew, brace for impact!"
Chrome: "Should have known."

Image
CRUNCH
Lt. Hawkins: "We're all gonna die!"

Image
Captain Fury: "It worked! Just like I knew it would!"
Chrome: "Right."
Lt. Hawkins: "Riiiight."

And a bit later...
Image
Lt. Hawkins: "We've got the comm node working, Captain."
Captain Fury: "Great. If we can get in contact with the ships that escaped with the Luchardsko, we'll have an ally and a good start on rebuilding civilization."
Lt. Hawkins: "I haven't gotten a signal from them yet - hold on. I'm getting something. But it's not the fleet. It's the Pericles..."

Image
Captain Fury: "Sam!"
Sam Porter Bridges: "Good to hear from you again, Captain. How's the rest of the T.L.A.?"
Captain Fury: "We've, uh... been better. How are you even contacting us from the Beige Linoleum?"
Sam: "We've been through quite the mess ourselves. But it turned out all right in the end. Wait till you see what the Quantumsurfers did with our ship-"
Lt. Hawkins: "Captain!"

Image
Lt. Hawkins: "Unidentified starship coming in!"

Image
Captain Fury: "Uh, just who are you?"
?????: "I am Captain Cliff Dangerstone, head of Space Justice."

Image
Captain Clint Firestone: "And for the crime of conspiracy to obtain and use Antimortallium, you are all under arrest!"

Elsewhere, an unremarkable frigate drifts through the void.

Image
Crewman: "Sir, we've picked up a distress signal. Looks like someone else has run afoul of Space Justice."
??????: "Hmm..."
Crewman: "Looks like they're some group calling themselves the T.L.A., sir."
??????: "Oh? That is interesting. Fly a search pattern and scan for the Space Justice ships."
Crewman: "Sir?"
??????: "It's time that our fight for justice gained some allies."

I love it. I am excited to see what happens with the space justice people.

Part 2 (Finally)

Image
Captain Fury: "The fuck is this? We were just minding our own business on an abandoned planet!"
Space Justice Chief Slate MacRockBody: "In G.R. 2019, you did conspire to obtain and use Antimortallium to end the life of an Immortal, in direct violation of the laws of Kanon. Furthermore, you escaped Ragnablok, the End of All Things and the justice imposed on your universe for its many crimes against Ossum."

Image
Captain Fury: "You didn't even exist then! How do you have jurisdiction?"
Chief Torch MissileGroin: "These guns are my jurisdiction."

Image
Chrome: "Enough of this. You may be well-armed, but I am a Deadly SpaceMan. If you know of the previous universe, you'll know what that means."

Image
Kung Fury: "I know of the Deadly SpaceMen. The greatest warriors in their universe."

Image
Kung Fury: "But this isn't your universe anymore."

Image
Chief Gaston Von BuffKnob: "Stun truncheons only. These scum don't deserve a badass death."

Image
Sam Porter Bridges: "Captain? Captain, please respond! Shit!"

Aboard the Pericles...
Image
Goose: "We lost the signal."
Sam: "Can we rescue them?"

Image
Goose: "Long-range sensors show a convoy of ships leaving orbit around the planet. Two frigates, one cruiser, and one transport. Even with our ship's modifications, that's a lot of firepower to take on alone."

Image
???: "T.L.A. Pericles, I believe we can help with your... situation."
Captain John Carter: "Who are you? Identify yourself!"
???: "We'll be striking that convoy in exactly two hours. We're transmitting a course to you now. Follow it and make the final jump when we launch our attack, and you'll be in a position to board the transport and rescue your friends."

Image
Goose: "What the hell is this?"
Sam Porter Bridges: "Did the course data not come through?"
Goose: "No, the course is fine... but how does our mysterious friend know what this ship can do?"
Sam Porter Bridges: "Then let's do it. We don't have any other options."

Image
The Pericles makes its first jump, into the Anno galaxy...

Image
Then, with a second jump, flies through the skies over the Battleplate...

Meanwhile...
Image
Space Justice Patrol Frigate: "Detecting a single unidentified ship dead ahead. Frigate-sized."
Space Justice Pursuit Frigate: "Roger. We will break formation and engage. You stay behind and cover the transport."

Image
???: "Knight: open fire."

Image
Pursuit Frigate: "We're hit! All hands abandon ship!"

Image
Patrol Frigate: "There's another ship out there. This one's got a high-energy beam weapon!"
Patrol Cruiser: "Commencing fire! Feed us targeting data as soon as you get a lock!"

Image
Patrol Frigate: "What the- a ship just jumped out right next to the freighter! Why the hell couldn't we detect-"
Patrol Cruiser: "Shit!"

Image
Patrol Cruiser: "All guns, target that enemy ship! I don't care if the transport takes a few hits!"
Captain John Carter: "A.T. field at 75%. Returning fire! Looks like our mysterious friend is engaging them as well."

Image
Captain John Carter: "There goes the cruiser. Alright, let's board the transport and finish this."

Image
Chrome: "Sounds like fighting outside. Should we-
Captain Fury: "Wait for it..."

Image
BOOM

Image
Captain Fury: "NOW!"

Image
Image
Image
Sam Porter Bridges: "Hey, I'm here to rescue... oh. Guess you didn't need my help."
Captain Fury: "I do appreciate the thought."
Captain John Carter: "Sam, our mysterious friends in the frigate are back. They're asking for permission to dock with the transport."

Image
Sam Porter Bridges: "Tell them to go ahead. It'd be nice to learn who they are."

Image
???: "I am..."

Image
"Zero!"

Part 3
Image
Sam Porter Bridges: "Whoever you are, I'm not sure I buy that you saved us out of the goodness of your heart. There must be something you want in return."
Zero: "Indeed. But I believe it will be in your interests as well."

Image
Zero: "Tell me: what is the most fundamental necessity for conflict and violence?"
Captain Fury: "Weapons?"
Sam: "Justifications?"
Chrome: "Factions."
Zero: "Yes! You are correct, Spaceman."

Image
Chrome: "In the ancient times, Deadly SpaceMen would don different-colored spacesuits in order to slake their bloodlust in battle against one another."

Image
Zero: "And those were the beginning of different Minifig factions, each with their own colors, technology, culture, and tactics. These factions made possible the great battles of old."

Image
"Soon, hundreds of unique factions had emerged, turning the Galaxia Nehellenium into an epic maelstrom of conflict and warfare. This brought about the period that the Quantum Surfers refer to as the Golden Age."

Image
"But this galaxy contained within it the seeds of its own destruction. For as the factions grew more numerous, they crushed the excitement of warfare under the weight of their shared history. Alliances were formed, choking out the embers of conflict before they could ignite, and new factions were denied the chance to leave their mark on the universe."

Image
"In the end, the Brikverse was shattered into sphincter universes so that the old system of alliances could never be re-formed, and all factions would have a chance to seek their destiny. But Ragnablok, too, is an imperfect solution. By splintering the universe, it has shattered the old alliances, but it has also prevented factions from finding new enemies."

Image

Image
"Not only does this reduce the amount of conflict in the Brikverse, it also opens the door for some factions to conquer their entire sphincter universe, leaving it devoid of any conflict whatsoever. I created the Black Knights to stand against would-be conquerors in this universe, but together with you, we can accomplish far more."

Image
"The Mountain Dew Drive technology given to you by the Quantum Surfers allows your ships to jump from one universe to another, as if they were still one."

Image
"With it, the T.L.A. can connect the separate sphincter universes and allow conflict to rage across them once again. Captain Fury, Chrome, Sam Porter Bridges... it's up to you to reconnect the universe."
