Geminate has fallen

7 07 2008

*CLANCK* The sound vibrates through the hull of my battleship as I slowly drift through the debris of enemy ships. I can sense the space, the pieces of metal, the silent cries of the stiff bodies floating by.

Victory is at hand. I spin my Megathron into a victory turn before heading for TDE, refueling, resocking and resupplying. Ready to move out again.

I am not alone in the process of ships that point the nose towards our new home. My comrades in arms fly beside me. We are not torn by race like the most of EvE but united in our purpose, in our belifs, in our destiny. The victorious, scared and majectic ships slowly make their way out of the remenants of what was former hostile space.

I salute my fellow pilots who has endured, fought and won.

I turn my megathron towards the new horizons and embrace the change that is to come.

Change is enevitable, but we shall adapt and overcome whatever the future holds as long as we stand beside eachother. This new change is a welcome one however. Geminate my home.

Carving a piece of space

22 06 2008

The push forward has payed off. The initial stage of securing the systems of BWF, IOO and BND was achived very fast and mainly done by the Goon Fleet, It was shortly followed by the assault on P-E9, L-TOFR, 4D9 and Q-TBHW which is currently being secured. DAI has turned up as well and we greet our comrades in arms.

We have had quite a few roamings, some more event full than others. Basicly we are hunting a prey that just want get out of dodge town. Eddz have had command over some of the roaming gangs and its always good to be yelled at. As wing men I had Krisz2 and Clevinger who also happened to fly the Deimos class assault ship.

Ultra Violence (CEO of DAC) was in his malediction and was supported by Cyberchick in her Zealot and last but not the least we had a Sir Hood in his taranis.

We were largely ineffective in catching any prey but that was more due to lack of aforementioned prey. Smashkill and some other corps they have harbored in their midst are moving out and going about it as carefull as possible. Really can’t blame them.

I personally was still hooked up on the Gallentean girl. They sure eat up a lot of time these females. Frequent trips to Jita prevented much action in the small roaming gangs.

While sleeping in my quarters my neocom buzzer went off. The slow pulsing red ligt on the remote PDA told me I had an incomming transmission waiting. Only way to read the message was to go down to the ship hangar and hook up via POD interface so the communication would be delivered securely.

I was not happy to leave my quarters but a secure line message was not to be ignored.

Hooking up and running diagnostics in my Sabre a map unfolded before my inner view. I recoqnized it at once as the Geminate region. A bit put off by calling me out like that for a Geminate operation I sourly read through the message from Eddz.

The first thing that sprung to my eye was the call for Dreads. The heavy Dreadnought class has never been something KIA specialized in. But here it was as the called for main stay of the fleet. I was sure we were to help the Goons take out remaining towers in some system as rumor would have it that there is a titan cooking in one of them.

My eyes almost poped out when the target and objective of the operation became apparent. To secure a new 0.0 home for KIA and DAI. I flipped quickly back to the map again to confirm the new constelation that we were to call ours.

We were to set off friday and attack the system of TDE. It was to be a KIA operation with light Goon support.

Once again the KIA titan was to spearhead the operation and the support battleships would be bridged in. Expected resistance would be small to none.

Always feels like a rush when being bridged in and you can almost cut through the anticipation of the fleet.

The system of TDE has a sickning greenish color that the sun projects without mercy. In time I shall learn to like it but landing in such a foul system almost makes one vomit. The dreads went to work without much of incidents.

We are now Geminate-Day +2 into the operation and Smash are still evacing as much as they can. Large bubbles are deployed on the gates and while the Dreads continue to do their part we sit in our battleships which are now reduced to support.

Ive run support gate duty most of the moring along side a Tempest class ship flow by Rudina of DAC and on the gate itself we had Ombre in his crow interceptor.

We put slugs of large ammunition into whatever comes by and have extra ships standing by in the event that we get an actual fight. The main effort is put into reinforcing towers and taking those down that come out of reinforcement. Smash dont even use the specialized gunners for their towers.

The Smash evacuation is no longer organized as small groups of individual pilots try to get their meagre belongings out. Every now and then they manage to form up a convoy and get a few ships out. But at best they are stuck in O2O 2 jumps away as the space lanes are constanly patrolled all the way to BWF.

The day is not over yet and more will loose their belongings as they strugle to get out.
