YES! I was going to delay it but thank you rouge AI.- 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 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, 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!
Don't worry. Our Interceptors have taken the position and have turned the DMEA around already.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 DMEA won't be able to respond anyways because it is distracted by Cloudflare.Don't worry, our Interceptors have intercepted the DMEA, causing it to turn around.
The spear has been drifting on its own by the pull of the planet's gravity.
Okay, so there is an alternate option.The world has twenty hours to prepare for a heck of a quake and a very, very long set of aftershocks. I beg you all. Find another way. Please.
Coastal cities will not survive.
Anything in orbit will not survive.
Any particularly small or old moons will probably shatter as they are too solid to handle the shock.
The Thanatos turret is not meant for this kind of proximity.
I don't want to do this to us.
Revert the change to the Advanced AI and hopefully get the other AI back in position to use all of the atmospheric TAC ships to push the threat back, but there's no telling if the DMEA fires that cannon.
Or the AIs could do it via drone, but they will need defense against possible rogue attackers.
The water will probably stop the spear. We can all let go so the spear drops and we can study it's technology.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.
