Anno] Grey Civil War, part 1

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.

Anno] Grey Civil War, part 1

Post by Shaggy » Tue Jul 21, 2020 3:04 pm

Somewhere on Depresio 2, The governor sits on her fancy deluxe mega collector’s edition Chair. The planet has been in chaos thanks to a worker revolt that has been very successful.

Image

All of a sudden, a man busts in.

Image

“Governor! The rebels have breeched the oute-“

Image

His head and brain juices splatter on the floor with a wet thud.
A small party of rebels enter the room, and her bodyguards raise their rifles cautiously.

Image
“I am the representative of the workers, and I come to you with an ultimatum.”
The governor quickly responds “And what is that?”
“You are to resign as governor and hand command to commander tequila, otherwise we will kill you.
She responds, “Looks like I don’t have a choice.”
Why do you?

I wouldn't think twice about giving up a position when a bunch of angry rebels with guns a-blazin' burst in either. :man:

Several weeks later, President Tequila is waiting in his office.

Image

2 men walk in.

Image

They take a seat.

Image
The president begins. “Pack your bags, this republic is forfeit. Corporate forces will be here in a few days and we don’t even have a fraction of their strength.”
The man in the ushanka responds. “Well, we may as well go down fighting.”

Image
The man in a beret quickly says “There is a distant nation, the ideal republic. If we can contact them, we could try to request their protection.”
“Well, why haven’t we?” The president asks.
“I was afraid to ask.”
“Well, do it! We need all the help we can get!”
Why do you?

--krrrkkk--

We interrupt this broadcast for a message from the Orsator government.

Image

Talks have begun between the great Grey Republic and Orsator officials, and we will now be supporting them in their civil war. Our support to them goes for their forward-thinking government and potential value to our cause, but mostly because they use the same colours as us.

Joint military planning is already underway.

Image

Negotiations are under way concerning the lendlease of Orsator equipment to the Republic, and their finest drivers and pilots are already being taught to use our equipment.

Image

Training programs by experienced Orsator personnel are being carried out, ensuring that Republic forces have all the skills they need to win the war, or at least not suffer a humiliating defeat.

Image

We are stronger together! Show your support for the cause by enlisting at the nearest Orsator or Republic recruitment centre!

Thank you for watching, we will now return you to your regularly scheduled broadcast.

--krrrkkk--
The real Piltogg was the friends we made along the way.
