The Girls From Alcyone II: Vengeance
This Week: Last week's snippet was very mysterious (possibly too mysterious!). So less mystery this week. This week, more action, and more Juncos falling from the sky. But this time we see what they're falling toward.
Raising the binoculars, Captain Tomanek scanned the skies again. The incoming ships were closer now; he could just make out their silhouettes. "Juncos… Bloody antiques…" he muttered. They were dropping in from orbit, unpowered, all their systems switched off. Their tactics were one of desperation, but there was a method to their madness. None of Tomanek's automated defenses could be brought to bear on the fighters.
It didn't matter. It was madness. Tomanek grunted. The attackers were committed to their suicidal descent, unable to maneuver—or fire their weapons for that matter. He knew they would wait to the last minute before switching everything on. And when they did, Tomanek's men would destroy them.
Something nagged at Tomanek; those fighters had to have come from somewhere. He tapped the com-unit clipped to his ear. "Madison, where's our overwatch. They must have picked something up by now—"
The immense sonic boom caused Tomanek to jerk his head up.Silly Side Notes: I was going to post a 'sexy' bit, but I chickened out. Maybe next week.
