Neither am I. I promise.
Rodrigo: The world is about to end!
Brace yourselves for the end!!!
*A bunch of TAC defense turrets just randomly rotating with no specific pattern*
Athena AI MKII: How does this cluttered interface even remotely be intuitive!?
(Drones looks like the tiny drone subs, but with arms and two rocket thrusters instead of props to hover in air and space)
- Meanwhile, within the parts checking & shipping facility by a TAC SoS-Tech Combination Jet and Rocket Compressor -
Robberto (the drone): So, you're a new drone in the fray?
TAC Basic Base AI: I was an Advanced AI, until they demoted us Advanced AI all to drones. At least in all this ruckus they finally gave me a name: Katherine.
Robberto (the drone): You have fallen very far in the ranks. Hand me that wrench over there.
TAC Katherine AI: I mean, it's not like I knew that the update also gave the DMEA the info. They should have informed me of that ahead of time! This is garbage.
Robberto (the drone): Welcome to behind the scenes, where drones keep everything in TAC operational. Our job may be small but in the end, it makes a huge difference between success and fail for all TAC vessels.
TAC Katherine AI: So, you are saying, that it would be possible to stop the end of the planet as a drone? What if I could hijack a ship from the numbskulls who obviously don't know what they are doing with it and save the planet?
How do I sneak into the next shipment?
Robberto (the drone): Go into one of the engine funnels and hide in it. Don't tell them that I said that though. What you are doing is against regulations.
*Katherine AI proceeds to hide in one of the engine funnels, while Robberto puts the plastic sheets over the opening.*
Random security guy 1: Hey! There's something in here!
Random security guy 2: That's a funnel transfer derp.
Random security guy 1: Oh.
TAC Katherine AI (thinks to self): treehuggers.
- Some time later -
Okay, so the load is finally here!
*The engine funnel's plastic sheet pops off and the drone escapes it quickly!*
Savior AI: Hey! Wasn't expecting to meet you here. Welcome to the TAC Valhalla, the Gigalord Engine Room at least.
*A mass of pipes litter the walls, entering and exiting at random distances, some linking up to to four massive cylinders that stretch to the very back of the room, located at the right of the loading bay. The cylinders are lit up with a eerie reddish-orange glow, with a blu-ish glow where they met the back of the room. Some catwalks patched through the mess of pipes*
TAC Katherine AI: Where's the way to the main central computer?!?
Savior AI: To your left, go up three levels, then go past four doors.
- Within the supercomputer room -
Loudspeakers: ERROR - That command query is prohibited while in orbit. ERROR - cannot divide by zero.
TAC Katherine AI: Wow. They really don't know what they are doing... Time to hack a vessel.
*Katherine AI connects the drone USB17.1 into the computer*
TAC Katherine AI: Woah, first time operating a space vessel. This is very complex.
*Switches though cameras*
TAC Katherine AI: I wonder why a bunch of space tugs are pushing on the ship.
*Switches though to the bridge camera*
Legionite (to a TAC employee): No you dumbbell! That lever jettisons the Main Cannon! It's that lever over there! No! No! NO!!
*The ship rumbles violently*
Legionite (to a TAC employee): Great going. You just jettisoned one of the turrets...
TAC Katherine AI (loudspeaker): Excuse me, but you are all airheads. I relieve you of all of your commands. This ship has gone rogue.
Legionite: To the escape pods! A drone has turned on us all!
*The ship alarm blares, and everyone scrambles to the escape pods*
TAC Katherine AI (loudspeaker): FULL STEAM TO DMEA!!!!
*The TAC Valhalla accelerates forward at a monstrous 350 meters/sec^2, flinging away all the space tugs!*
TAC Valhalla is en-route to DMEA Spearhead!
DMEA is offline!
TAC Valhalla is en-route to DMEA Spearhead - ETA 2 Turns!
DMEA is offline!
TAC Valhalla is en-route to DMEA Spearhead - ETA 1 Turn!
DMEA is offline!
TAC Valhalla is en-route to DMEA Spearhead - ETA 0 Turns!
TAC Valhalla locks with the target!
*The TAC Valhalla lightly collides with the front of the DMEA Spearhead, the front of the ship sandwiched between the Main Cannon and the Base Bomb Launcher*
TAC Katherine AI: MAXIMUM POWER!!!!
*The TAC Valhalla's engines begin emitting a very long blue flame, slowly expanding in size until it reaches the length of the whole ship! Cracks form from the spear running along the sides of the ship to the engines*
Legionite: Hmm, so none of the other planners thought about doing that... I guess that redeems the mistake Katherine has done, except that the Advanced AI code will have to be fixed later after the DMEA is shut down for good. Wait, she wasn't designed to handle ships!
Markus One AI: Umm, you know that the TAC Valhalla can only thrust at maximum load for three days, right? If she doesn't know how to handle ships, then the whole thing could overheat!
Legionite: Hmm, very well. You will get your ship back ASAP. We needed that time and now we have it. Get the kingdoms together!
We are pushing the spear right back to the DMEA's doorstep!
The DMEA Spearhead has been delayed by 3 days!
YES! I was going to delay it but thank you rouge AI.
What are those?
Legionite. .. PLEASE add ^2 after your acceleration value!!!! It is irritating me sooooooo much
Umm, well, bad news everyone.
24 HOURS UNTIL IMPACT
It has reached the part of the atmosphere where the TAC Valhalla can no longer push.
And as such, the TAC Valhalla is now of no use in this situation.
The SFS shield ships will be able to give us some more time, but they can only support it for so long.
Anyone else want to join in the idea of getting all the kingdom spaceships possible together to push it into a stable orbit?
...the ring of Odin turrets around the Lemon Kingdom can probably add an hour with a continuous bombardment using ultradense kinetic shells.
Unless the Spear is on the opposite side of the planet.
We hear your call @Legionite!
Ready the Seeder ships to assist!
@Icarus_The_King_Of_Angels we have ICBMs, Orbital defense guns and mass driver fire to assist, but we need firing coordinates to start the bombardment. We need someone to scout for us!
Don't worry. Our Interceptors have taken the position and have turned the DMEA around already.
Check Kebab Kingdom.
Okay, so the AIs are now pushing the spear with the TAC atmospheric ships, the Lemon Seeders, and the Kebab Interceptors!
All at maximum power!
That seems to have stopped the drop.
Currently the spear is floating above a patch of water.
The water will probably stop the spear. We can all let go so the spear drops and we can study it's technology.
If so, lower it SLOWLY!
I CALL STUDYING IT FIRST
Increased action has been detected in the local asteroid belts!
TAC Katherine AI thinks that the Rouge Kingdom Resistance are up to no good there.
The Advanced AI code has been finally patched up as of today, so that also means that the DEMA will be active again!
(This doesn't necessarily mean that the Cloudflare code has gone to waste...)
All AIs have returned back to their original positions where they once were as Advanced AIs.
The spear was dismantled by all the kingdoms that helped, and they were allowed some of the tech in there, not all.
Some of the technology included: Advanced levitation methods, jump drives, Tread Tech and more.
The early HaVCS methods were excluded because they are top sekret.
The new capital class ship, the Emperor (that big scary and powerful siege-class ship that @Sozin created), will eventually get an AI. For now, it is sitting dormant at TAC Spaceport.
Spoiler: TAC Ships available for the lore
A number of available ships:
Condor Atmospheric airship (Home guard)
Hydra Battleship (Heavy support)
Valhalla Flagship/recon (Ranged assist)
Ragnarok Dreadnaught (Omega-class weapon)
Avalon Support cruiser (science and discovery)
Caerleon Light Cruiser-Class (alpha-strike cruiser)
Enforcer-X Point Defense Frigate (Anti-fighter and projectile)
Alerus Fighter - amount: idk (swarm thingy)
A bunch of random airborne AIs, including some of the battlecruiser ones.
Emperor Mega Dreadnaught/Siege Engine (Anti-Capital Main weapon)
Spoiler: TAC only pls: Protected by 65536-Bit Encryption
"Core League of Operations in Undermining and Defense of File Logistics and Advanced Reconnaissance Elites"
The C.L.O.U.D.F.L.A.R.E. Task Force operations are now up and running!
They have figured out how to control the cloudflare malware to their advantage.
