Excellent.

Dan:
Your stealth technology isn't all that tried and tested is it? We saw it coming and it's heading back to you right now.
You may want to upgrade the stealth technology before Freespace gets here and the real fighting starts.

I declare that the Outer Ring and Asteroid Belt Coalition (ORABC) be formed, to wage war on Venus.

McBrain: Your information agency wouldn't have any updates on this subject, would it?
In fact we'd be willing to give you a VERY good price on an even kiloton of iridium ore if you'd give us a heads-up on
any danger coming our way. We'd be much obliged  :)

This could turn into a ORABC vs. the inner ring planets war.

We might rework a bit our stealth technology but you might on your side review a bit
your trajectory calculus: you just destroyed mercury with our asteroid...

We got ice cubes, and plenty of them. But we also mine certain materials off of the bed of the ocean under the ice.

Top news:
               schumanna will be meeting with Commander of the 2nd dumbest army in the solar system and the PM of
UCAMM to discuse what actions will happen now.  War or Peace.  Has this anything to do with DanSteph arrested for Act of Piracy.  Is the War a cover up?  Ploto is claiming to want "More of the sun".  What does this mean for the rest of the solar system.

Oh! I know it's :off: but Modern Marvels on the History Channel is doing the Shuttle Columbia. Probably a rerun, but if
you're on the west coast of the US, check it out.
They'll probably do a re-run later this evening/tomorrow morning (I think that's how it works)

You pricks! Starting this war and blaming me for it!? How dare you! I'll have you know every single one of my
warships are still accounted for. I have my No.1 lackey heading to mars, for mass aquiring rights. But that's only one
ship, on a *peaceful* mission.  poor earth.. Venus is still taking the influx of refugees that managed to escape earth
before the disaster....

Freespace is currently focusing on rejuvenating earth before the lack of life creates an unbreatheable atmosphere.

(that and he wants it for himself. Screw going way out in the boon docks. Earth's next door!)

*RED ALERT, BATTLE STATION, RED ALERT*

"This is Utopia Planitia Shipyards. Sir, the Venusian Cruiser has been refitted. We are receiving long distance radar
contacts. Seems there is a strike force on its way to Mars. Standing by for further instructions!"

*Doc irritably turns to the screen* What of it? Your orders are. Make no move, do not provoke an attack. Officially we
are still neutral. The cruiser was captured because it violated our territory. I am pretty sure, Venus doesn't see it that
way, hence the strike force. Launch the cruiser as soon as it is ready. Send the Dauntless and the Phoenix to escort
it and be prepared to execute the plan!

"Yes, sir. The new stolen wizzard technology has been installed and should work flawlessly. Just as it did with the
invisible asteroid. But I don't understand why you will send two escort ships WITHOUT the system installed. What is
the point."

*Doc approaches the screen* You have your orders, General. And I have my plan. You do things according to plan,
Venus is in for a suprise. What's the ETA?

"Just over an hours sir. The planets are in correct position, otherwise it would be almost a week."

Good, notify me, when they are within Vanusian SOI. Then we execute the plan. As you well know, the point is not to destroy Venus, but to end this conflict before it REALLY gets out of hand. Those cowboys in the outter regions are a much bigger problem than Venus. Are they not actually trying to assist Earth? No, we just need to stop Freespace from making a mistake by attacking Mars.

"Your Majesty, the fleet has arrived at Mars" the intercom cackles.

"Good! Do not attack Mars unless provoked. Our objective there is to be able to identify and intercept any threats
from the outer solar system, *before* they reach earth or venus. Still, keep an eye out for that cruiser they captured.
Do not trust it even if they appear to be all right. it's been compromised. Mars claimed it was invading their territory,
but it was a diplomatic mission, known well in advance to the whole solar community. And the comms info we got back
confirms that they identified themselves. We have no interest in mars. earth takes priority. We must not stretch
ourselves thin."

"Affirmative. your majesty. Also, what are we to do with the people on Luna?"

"If they wish to return to earth once we have aquired it, then let them."

"but majesty. That's not what I meant. The lunar colonies are claiming their independance now that earth has fallen
to the wayside, what do we do?"

"eh, let them do what they want. we'll focus on them when we're done. they're still weak from living in dome cities.
they can't even walk freely on the surface. that's what happens when you choose to live on a celestial body with no
atmosphere to teraform."

"yes, majesty"

"SIR, Venus sphere of influence reached. Do we proceed with the plan"

"Yes, General, forthwith!"

The escort ship Dauntless and Phoenix open brutal fire on the semi-crippled cruiser. It accelerates in an effort to put
enough distance between them. The cruiser starts sending out a distress signal to Venus.
"This is Cruiser AresII. We've managed to escape the Marian forces, but they are still in pursuit. Our shields are 3%
and dropping rapidly. Request you open the planetary shield immediatelly!"

"AresII, negative, risk of Martian contamination is too high. Can you hold out?"

"That is an overwhelming negative. Shields down to 2%. Help us, Venus!"

After a short while, the Venus shields drop. The Dauntless and Phoenix realising the cruiser is about to escape, fire a
final salvo and then change course moving away from Venus to a standard orbit.

The cruiser is hit.. and after a series of explosions dissapears off the screens and out of sight. A few escape shuttle
are reigstered flying off in different directions. Venus HQ determines that the whole crew managed to escape the
destruction. But they remain angry because of the unprovoked attack.

Meanwhile, the Dauntless and Phoenix assume orbits and slowly circles the planet. They are looking and waiting..

"This is Venus AirSpace Control. What is the meaning of this!?"

"We regret to inform you, but your planet has just been infiltrated by Dan's cover operatives. We are trying to
determine their location!"

"Bull. Dan the Belt Commander???"

"Trust me, Commander. We almost have the signal. We will destroy their field camp as soon as we pinpoint it!"

"What are you talking about. The shield is up again. You can't shoot through it!"

"We'll see. Got it! It's in the southern regions of the planet. The minning complexes, they are about to seize the
operation. Prepare to fire!"

"Wait! How.. what.."

The Phoenixes cannons start spit fire which hits the planetary shield with roaring ferocity. Most of the blast is
disspated by the shield, but a smaller beam passes through and decimates the targeted area.

"There you go, Commander. All clear. We are heading back to Earth. Sorry for this.. incident. Our President is eagerly
awaiting communication from your leader. There is much to be explained and as you have seen, much new
information to take into consideration.."

The two mighty vessels engange engines and are gone in a few seconds..The commander on Venus is dumbfounded
and stares at the screen.. He pushes a button to contact his leader......

......

Meanhile a shadow slowly descends on the Surface of venus and decloaks..

*various sirens and claxons are going off in the distance and locally*

Freespace is seething with anger. "DAMMIT!"

The communications to the area stopped a while ago, and reports are yet to come in. It's quite nerve racking at the
moment. finally, the intercom flares, "Majesty, we have a problem!"

"Duh. I could tell that from the thunderous roar in the distance. what the hell happened?"

"As far as we can determine, a blow was inflicted to our mining operation. A smaller beam from a warship penetrated
a hole in the global shielding system, and fried anything that was on the surface. Fortunately, there was little damage
or casualities, as everyone was underground mining."

"I smell a trap. Get my elite royal guard ready. I wish to have them spearhead the investigation and resolution of this
incident. We must not fall to confusion! send out our rejuvination and invasion force to earth with a full complement of
the new U wing fighters and warship complement at once! "

"yes, sire."

"Now, increase security at all critical posts to maximum. 120% for here. and make sure that the shielding over the
palace is 100% complete before any work is done elsewhere on it. increase aggressiveness with the martians, but
don't start fighting with them yet. also, we're outta cheetoes here, so hurry up and get someone down here, already."

"Yes, sire."

The sirens finally stop

Freespace is not a fool. If he was in direct charge of the shield, he would have never let the shield down. cloaked
ships have a tendency to slip past shields when they're not active. also, it's likely that this is merely an attempt to
keep freespace from aquiring the title of "king of Venus and the rest of the solar system.....and sarcasm" He never
was able to patent an alternative version of a cloaking device, even the one time he got really close, there was that
espionage case where an idot happened to be listening in as the main engineer on the project gave out the whole
formulas as he talked in his sleep due to being overworked.

suddenly, the sirens come back on, and the comm crackles back to life. "Sir, you're not going to believe this, but..."

"Great work, General. Now, are you SURE, the Venusians thought we fired THROUGH the shield? The cruiser WAS
position exactly below the Phenix and below it?"

"As far as we can tell sir, they THINK we can fire through it.. Although they didn't make much mention of the incident
on the official channels, which would figure. Too embarassing I'd say. "

"Shame. I was hoping for a more panicky if unofficial response, that would reverberate beyond the Belt into the
Jovian system, so they would not dare to rely on thir shielding systems as they do now.. Never hurts to fill you enemy
with some additional fear, even if it's unreal."

"Anyway, shall I attempt to contact King Freespace's HQ? I mean as far as we can tell, elements of the 2nd dumbest
army are still on the move. Only about 10k from the Crystal Palace. And the cruiser has just landed unloading MCA
commandoes."

"Yes, I think it is time, we explained the stunt we pulled, why we did it and prepared him for the bad news... Unless it
is too late and those Belt scum were able to incinerate Venus to fight to death over Earth... I never did understand
why they like all that gravity? People tend to take things too seriously, when there is lots of gravity involved. Anyway,
keep me posted and make those commandoes fly, if they have to. Seriously, if we are there we better catch those
operatives, before his own royal guards do. The Venusian torture tactics are just beyond contempt, not to mention
the insanity of revenge Dan's troops will then feel obligated to execute upon Venus... This solar system will look like
sands of my ski resort if Freespace doesn't help me get those Outlanders in order."

*Doc checks the radar signature of the approaching Venus task force...*

If I can get freespace to cooperate, I could integrate this fine group into the newly formed Starfleet. Resettle Earth
making sure to keep the scum off and to not repeat the mistakes of the ancients.. Although I personally don't think I
will ever stop on that lousy heavy planet again. Mars is my home now.. Speaking of which..

*Doc takes off in his DG-Delux edition and flies off for another ski run down the slopes of the tallest vulcano known* :)

"What!? an invasion of the second dumbest army!?" Exclaimed freespace.

"sire, their numbers are relatively light. I do believe they don't pose that much of a threat. Furthermore, they are very
weak from living in a low gravity environment, so they can't fight nearly as fierce as we can."

"why else do you think I chose Venus as my favorite planet?  certainly not for the sun tan. well, certainly not only
the sun tan anyway. We have 91% earth's gravity. enough to reduce chronic back pain, but not enough to become a
bunch of weaklings. Prepare the defenses. I don't want to take any chances. shoot to kill, and only take officers
prisoner." Then interrogate the reasons of this insult to my genious. Use the water torture method. Nobody can resist
having some water dropped on their face continually! HAHAHAHAHA!"

"Yes, sire. Oh, and the pizza guy is here."

"Did you make sure he didn't get here in thirty minutes or less?"

"Yes. the garden maze was very helpful, but now your pizza is cold."

"Free pizza, mmm. you can't beat that. put it in the royal oven, I'll be there when it's ready. now then, is the fleet
bound for earth there yet?"

"No sire, but it will be soon. The subspace drives you bought are making travel very fast, furthermore, nobody will
detect them until they emerge from subspace.....
...
Sire! Urgent news! We have just gotten a message from mars! they want to communicate!"

"Put them on the line."

*The spartanic communications room comes to life and Doc comes to attention, as he deems it fit for this occasion.
It's been a while I've done the invasion speech. A dark figure appears in the screen. A tall cloaked man with a huge
hood. Two piercing white blue eyes glaring in the shadow of the hood*
"It's you!"

*and it's my queue*

"How are you gentlemen. All your base are belong to us!"

*The subwoofer on Freespaces side creates sonic interference, resulting in irritating screetching noises*
"I see you acquired some new goods from the Europan Warez. I'm sure it all just fell of the spacetruck, eh? Well, so
did my DG-Deluxe edition.. Anyway, I am not here to discuss our hobbies, even though invasions also seem to fall in
that category. I suppose you noticed I am able to strike with precision, through your beloved shield. I suppose you
also noticed, I did so only to lay waste the enemy operatives camp site, dealing only minor damage to the nearby
minning installation. And finally, I suppose you also noticed I was telling the truth."

*Doc waits a few moments for emphasis, judging whether the information has sunk in the right way.. Those damn
piercing eyes, you can never tell if he's sulking, making faces or day-dreaming..... argh, the things I must do, to keep
this stupid solar system in one piece*

"So, the reason why I did this was to create panic and to secretely contact you. Panic for the benefit of our friends in
the outlying regions, contacting you, to see if you would be interested in putting an end to this... petty rebellion.
Now, I know we've had some differences regarding a certain scripture design, you.. invented. But we are also grown
men with enough toys to at least take out our frustration on those and talk like real men. Now, this whole endeavour
was designed to overtake the minning facilities in the Belt and the Jovian Moons. Mercury, Earth and a few other ...
mistakes.. were not planned for, but serve to inflamme the public. Your reputation as a self proclaimed, petty, childish
ruler was beginning to spread out too much. When Dan officially broke your copyright, I took the opportunity to play
along, hoping he would not so cowardly retreat so soon. I had nothing left, but to pack my bags and get off Earth as
well. To Mars of course. Which was totally unprepared for my arrival and is now mine.

*A mobile rings.. Doc angrily moves it to his ear* What?! I ordered no interrup.... oh, it's you dearest.. no, not now,
I'm in the middle of something.. Aw, crap. Now, you tell that young lady to leave Orbiter alone. Look what I became
because.. Well, of course, I don't want her dating instead.. ahh.. look, I'll have to call you back... Byeeeee

*Damn, there goes my authorative image*

"Khm... Sorry... Now I propose we forge a plan to get rid of all those vermin inhabitting places not even fit to be called
moons. We end up with both our own planet. You can have Earth, I have no feelings for it and I do assume you will
need a summer residence to get that smoggy planet of yours at least for a few months and I propose to take
posession of the Belt. The Jovian system and onward, will be discussed fairly, once you and I secure it. For this
purpose I propose the creation of Starfleet. You fleet is just in time to join forces with mine and prepare a blockade
around the major rocks in the Belt.. What do you say, King Freespace II.com?

"Eh, hmm.."
*damn, I gotta stop daydreaming during these important meetings.*

"Your proposal is quite intruiguing, but pound for pound, (or KG for KG for you metric people) you get far more mass
than I do. I'd have to alter your proposition a tad to compensate. I want mercury. sure, everybody's dead there now
because of that other asteroid, but it's still in one piece, and that makes it valuable to me. I also want luna,  
ceres and pallas from the asteroid belt, and then saturn to balance it. You still get more mass with this deal, but I feel
it is more... balanced this way. do not forget that you also get neptune and the kuiper belt. I will refuse to create
a "starfleet" with you, but a permanent peace treaty is more than agreeable to. every other term seems fair."

By the way, I have green eyes. it must just be the hue on your monitor. :)
