Chapter 1: The Decision
"Welcome Back Mr. President, how was your trip to Bali?" "Not the best trip I've but a well-needed vacation if I can say that much." "Well sir, I guess this would be a bad time to welcome you back home...Right?" "No it's not Bailey, Not at all I'm very much happy to be home. Prep the meeting room I heard there was a meeting today." "Yes sir, soon as we get you settled in I'll call in the Gen. Toughens and SecDef. McGarthy." "Good job Bailey. You might be looking at a pay raise in your future, and not just cause you're my long time friend." Both laughed. President Odin and Secret Service Chief Bailey walked into the break room and continued their little chat. "Well bailey, I have to say, although I'm not too excited to to be back in front of a mountain of papers I am glad to back here with you." "Thanks, Mr. President sir. It's alway a pleasure." "Well go on Bailey, get Toughens and McGarthy in here. I guess it's something serious if they're coming to me right after my trip." " Yes, Sir. Right away Sir." Bailey left the break room and went to the reception desk. " Hey, you call the General and Secretary of Defence in now. The president is ready." "Ok. Yes, Ma'am right away." The Lady at the reception desk was a rookie, so the yes ma'am, no ma'am, yes sir, no sir was stamped on her head for a while.
About 25 minutes later General Toughens and Secretary McGarthy had finally arrived and walked rather quickly to the president's office. Without invitation General Toughens barged in loudly, secretary McGarthy and Bailey followed, waking up the president from his jet lag nap. "Mr. President sorry to wake you, but this is urgent. A 15-year-old boy from Colorado named Skater_TJ, Don't ask why he told us that but it's beside the point. He is top of his class and has currently 23 scholarships awaiting his acceptance." "Ok, so what so urgent about this general?!" "Well, sir everything he designed a satellite that projects a plasma-hypophyilic beam capable of destroying anything in its path." "Are you telling me that you want to buy an advanced weapon module from a 15-year-old who won't even give us his real name?" "Yes, sir that exactly what I'm asking." "Well before we negotiate price I want to see him and meet him before I put money in his pocket." " Not a problem sir I'll prep Marine 1 and we'll be skyborne in 15." "No, I want him to come to the White House." "Roger sir I'll email them the flight details as soon as I set them up." "Toughens I want first class seats and 100% security surveillance and protection as soon as they arrive." "Roger Sir."
After 2 days had passed TJ had finally arrived in D.C. He walked to the departures area and looked for his pick up. Four Big men code-named Brutus, Pashka, Nakita, and Tango had a sign with Tj's name on it. he walked up to them and surrounded him in a circle. They escorted him to a metallic black Chevy Tahoe platoon that had a line of 4 cars. he got in the second one and they sped off, on their way to The White House. "Copy General PC is on its way at 75 miles per hour. ETA: 12 minutes." "Copy that Nakita makes sure nothing happens to that kid, and make sure he gets what he want as long as he's here in less than 15 minutes." "Yes, sir." "Hey Mr. Secret Service guy, would it be any trouble to stop and get me some McDonald's or something. That airline food didn't really stay down." "Sure Mr. TJ, just as soon as we get off the interstate. Are you sure you want McDonald's there's more here than just that." Nikita said with a smile. Nikita had a son about the same age as TJ. So he treated TJ as his own, even though they had just met. Nikita lost his son in a terrorist attack in 2024, when someone tried to bomb the White House. Nikita's son Joshua had been in the blast radius of the suicide bomber and was killed by the concussive blast and fragment that was propelled at him. So Escorting TJ was an honor for him.
20 minutes later they arrived at the White House and rushed up to a secure room meeting room. TJ's face lit up as President Bosworth turned around in his chair to greet the 15-year-old mastermind. "Mr. President... I..." He stuttered nervously. "It's an honor to meet you in person Sir." "No TJ, The pleasure is all mine. Meeting an American student that is developing for our country." "Yes, Sir I'm very glad to be in the White House for something good rather than bad." TJ laughed nervously. "So TJ, tell me, how exactly does your satellite work?" "I was hoping you asked me that Mr. President. Get ready for Virtual Reality, or as we in the tech industry call it VR for short." President Bosworth slipped on the bulky eye goggles and looked very impressed. "Wow, it feels like I'm really in space." He smiled. "Yes, That what VR is. Now if you begin to feel sick just let me know and I will pause, so you can gather you balance back up." "Got it." The president replied nervously. "What you are seeing is a standard launch pad at the NASA base in Huston Texas. The satellite module is its cargo. From here on out we'll call it SatMod. Now SatMod can be installed and programmed in space just like the International Space Station (ISS). The only difference is it won't take 5 years to put together, more like 5 days. Once SatMod is powered up ready, it is capable of wiping out cities as big as Dallas in one blow. One of the best features of the SatMod is that it has variable radiuses. This means that you have 6 different types of targeting modes that include: Anit-Personel, Anti-Vehicle, Anti-Areal, Anit-Aircraft, Anti-Armor, and Anti-Spacecraft. All 6 of those modes have sub-modes. I'll explain. First off the Anti-Personel mode is designed to take out specific people that you target, without a lot of casualties. There are three different Anit-Personel radiuses. Those measures consist of 2.25, 5.0, and 8.96 inches. All of which work just like a bullet. It fires from space and intercepts your target at almost Mach 5!" "Wait one minute TJ, so you're telling me that SatMod can kill one person without being detected? So in other words an Unmanned Weapon Module capable of stealth missions?" President Bosworth said interruptingly. "Precisely Sir!" TJ responded.
"As I was saying, The next mode, Anti-Vehicle, has 4 sub-modes radiuses: 25.65, 55.25, and 86.01 inches. These radiuses are designed to take out enemy vehicles. Such as cars, trucks, boats, and even submarines. Yes, Mr. President, my SatMod design is capable of detecting other stealth vehicles, without compromising its position. The next mode is Anti-Areal. This mode has only two settings: Anti-Building designed to take out buildings; its radius size has a maximum of 50.05 yards and a minimum of 20.50 yards. The other one is Anti-Base; Its radius has a max of 400 yards and a minimum of 100 yards." "Sorry again for the interruption, but I must ask this question; so you're telling me that I can take out entire enemy military bases?" The president questioned. "Yes, Sir Mr. President. The other thing I was going to mention is that this SatMod requires the same security procedure as a nuclear launch. This security feature will prevent any possible traitors from firing on the USA. It is also designed to be un-hackable. Its carbon nano shielding, along with its solar flare, and heat shielding will prevent any and all attempts of signal interference. It also has an alarm system that will sound if an attempt is taken. The alarm will go off in NORAD and they will relay it to you. Now back to SatMod's system. The next mode is Anti-Aircraft; this one is the same as Anti-Vehicle, but the Anti-Aircraft is specifically designed to target high-speed aircraft. Next is the Anti-Armor. This mode is designed to take out enemy armor such as Tanks, Battleships, missile launchers, etc. Anything that has rather high damage capacity.
Now you may ask, how does the SatMod penetrate armor? Well, the SatMod has an energy burst tank that will activate when it is set to Anti-Armor. So the beam changes from a plasma beam to a Hydrochloric overdrive beam. This will heat the beam and it will melt any armored vehicle that it targets. Once the beam has penetrated the armor it will send a concussive blast that will blow the target to pieces. Last, but certainly not least is the Anti-Spacecraft mde. THis mode is designed to target potention enemy space craft that may be trying to manually get control of the system. It targets ust as normal with a bean destoying the craft. This also works on long-range nuclear missile if there should ever be such a war. Now the final feature of my design is the Self-Destruct Activation. This works by successfully getting trough all security features and commanding it to Self-Destruct. The SatMod will the engage its remaining power in its power cells and fire its after burner into the deep reaches of space and will blow itself apart until there is little parts of it left. This mode is designed for emergancy uses. Such as if someone should successfully get to the SatMod and try a hacking procedure." " As President Bosworth took off the VR goggles, he looked at TJ and said "What's your price?" in a very inthusiastic way hoping TJ wouldn't damand over 6 billion dollars.
"Mr. President if you can give me a check with 3.89 billion dollars on it, the design is your as long as I get recognition for the design and my name is engraved on the shutter panal." TJ said hoping he wasn't asking for much. "Son call me Mr. Bosworth" He replied egarly. "Bailey!" The president yelled. " Get SecDef and the General in here now I have some news for them!" About 2 minutes later they had arrived back into the meeting room with the president and TJ. "General, Secritary i beilive you have some phone calls to make about getting this thing operational now." "Yes Sir Mr. President I'm on it!" The general said quickly.
2 Months Later
"Copy Huston we are feet wet and fangs out ready for the final part installation on SatMod." "Copy that Sgt. Rager can't wait to get you back home. Huston out." "Alright John, let's get this SatMod together." "Copy that Sarg. I'm bout' ready to go home!" "Amen to that John, amen to that." Astronauts John and Sgt. Rager had finally fished installing the final part of SatMod. It had only taken 2 hours to install, and both astronauts where on their way home. "Sir, the SatMod is fully operational the general had just given the order for power-up." "Good, I'm on my way to the tech room for first power test, and firing test." "Copy that Sir. I'll them wait up." The president finshed tieing his tie and headed for the tech room. He walked in and on a large screen was live feed from SatMod. "TJ what do you say we change the name of the SatMod? How about XSL1 Vulcan?" "That's perfect Mr. President. How about we get this thing powered up?" "Yes, we shall." XSL1 Vulcan hissed and shuttered as it powered up to full power. "60% power Sir." "Nice and steady Durwin we don't what it to overheat on its first power-up." The president said gracefully. "95%, 98%, 100% power Sir we are fully powered up and ready for beam fire." "Copy ready the launch code." everyone scrambled around thech room getting cards and launch codes for XSL1. "Steady coordinates on 35.327642 N., -110.328487 W. Activate Anti-Areal mode. Radius size 55.26 yards." Copy sir fire a will."
