Legionite: Quick! Just eject the rovers! The Kebab Kingdom says that the rovers can launch the Plasmite safely a certain distance!
Athena AI MKII: Go go go!
*A ton of rovers fly off the side of the TAC Hydra*

*The TAC ships make it to space, and explosions are seen happening on a particular spot on the planet*
Athena AI MKII: The rover are mining the area. So far, the Kiwis seem to have already found the mining operation, but seem to be doing nothing about it. They are actually responding to the DMEA instead!
Markus One AI: Serves him right!
Savior AI: I am really busy saving Kiwis via teleport who get their ships shot down...
Athena AI MKII: The Kiwis are losing the battle, and they are trying to send distress calls!
Markus One AI: Should we let it through?
Athena AI MKII: If we did, we would have to abandon the mining operation!

Athena AI MKII: Now to collect the Plasmite... Legionite, what ship do we have permission to use?
Legionite: Use the old osprey helicopter on the side of the TAC Hydra!
Helicopter.png
Athena AI MKII: Understood.
*The old helicopter flies off and began circling the mining site, collecting a bunch of Plasmite in the process*

Conqueror AI: This is boring...
*A huge explosion, very visible from space, happens in the same spot that the previous explosions were occurring*
Conqueror AI: Now that looks fun!
*A bunch of shrapnel from the huge explosion hits the TAC Hydra on the left Heavy Double Helix Cannon!*
Athena AI MKII: Taking some punishment here...

*A bunch of small kiwi ships, or rather, bases darted way from the planet, as the whole planet detonated like the Death Star!*

*A ton of lasers being traded between Kiwi ships and a partially damaged DMEA. A total commotion was seen right ahead of the TAC Hydra!*

Athena AI MKII: Good news! We have managed to get a ton of Plasmite before the planet exploded onto the TAC Hydra!
Athena AI MKII: The problem is, is that the Plasmite is out in the open!!

*A bunch of Kiwi fighters were flying inbound towards the TAC Hydra!*

Stalk me not
Okay, what was that? How did you kill off the Kebab Interceptors so easily? They have heavy shielding and armor, and medium speed and firepower. 30 of them could do real work. I say we undo, and I'll send the Planet Eater to the location to pick up the Plasmite and store it all in a safe place while carrying 128 more Interceptors to the battlefield to clean up the Kiwi mess. Also carrying 29 more rovers to speed up the process, and the one rover ON the planet will begin to deactivate the planet bomb and flying buildings. And by calling the Athena AI serious, I meant that she will be completely serious, and only UNDERSTAND slang, not speak it herself. And she doesn't go like, NOOOOOOOO!!! when something goes wrong, instead, she gives valueable plans on what to do next. And instead of asking WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!? she'll tell you that it's a awesome/great/good/okay/not good/terrible/horrible/awful idea based on what's happening and tell why.

30 Kebabian Interceptors vs a whole planet swarm of Angry BeesKiwis!
Of course the Kiwis would shoot at anything they would think is an intruder!
They escaped the planet's explosion because they had an escape plan, then unleashed their full force on the invaders.

They picked the TAC ships because they saw too many defenses on the DMEA that destroys fighters quickly.
Given that the TAC Hydra and the TAC Avalon suck at defending themselves against fighters due to the lack of AA guns (nearly no ballistic weapons, and definitely a lack of auto cannons), the Kiwis saw them as easy prey (especially the Plasmite on the TAC Hydra), and leaped at the opportunity to get revenge for their lost planet.

And by calling the Athena AI serious, I meant that she will be completely serious, and only UNDERSTAND slang, not speak it herself.

TAC adds a bit of "human" to AI, (TAC's Main Special Ingredient) so that the crew is more comfortable working with such AI. (Explaining why some AI are cowards, and some actually care, rather than just "following orders").

This is the side effect of the "Advanced Learning Processing System Add-On" [ALPSAO, or Alpha-0] that all TAC AI use.
This helps as a key prevention measure to keep AIs like Skynet from happening - Skynet doesn't care about what it destroys. It does it for a goal, but not within the boundaries of human emotions.

If you don't want the "Advanced Learning Processing System Add-On" on the AI, you gotta hope to Crafty that the AI doesn't go on a destruction spree just because of a command you gave it.

DMEA was a failure because TAC apparently added too much sass to the AI, and way too much freewill.

Oh, and another thing- the AIs actually have 2D or 3D avatars (*Cough**cough*side effect of visual spacial dominant mind*cough*) for the crew to see, but I am not going to bother with drawing those avatars since I suck at drawing humans.
.
Oh yeah, back to square one, this time with actual support from other kingdoms.
It would be great if more than just the Kebab Kingdom and TAC helped pull this off!

TAC's ships return home in time, while the massive Kebab Planet Eater is still prepping to move out.
*The explosions died out on the planet somehow when the TAC ships were departing for home*
*TAC Valhalla's probe was busy keeping track of the events at the Plasmite Planet*

Athena AI MKII: The DMEA was leaving the Plasmite planet for some reason, and what appears to be a huge kiwi fleet arriving at the planet at the same time.
Athena AI MKII: Next time, DMEA's presence there would be unlikely.

Markus One AI: Home sweet home!

*Some time back at TAC HQ*

???: *garbled static* h-
TAC Basic Base AI: I just got some random garbling on the comms...
Markus One AI: Any idea on what
kingdom has the problem?
Legionite: (Barges in)- Seems the the Kiwis have just pulled off their first strike at the Lemons!
Athena AI MKII: From detailed reports, it seems that a Lemon Thunderhead is under attack!
Bacon AI: And what's to make sure it isn't a trap?
Athena AI MKII
: Time to ask the Lemons. @Potato, is one of your ships under attack? We have received a distress call from a ship with a Lemonion Thunderhead emergency signal flag.

To be Continued by Lemon Kingdom

Shhhh @Legionite, we're too far away for any communications, hence the static. ;) Plus I'm not allowed to do anything unless I have a ship ready. Oh and if you're scanning, we have 7 ships coming your way. Thanks!
