Chapter 14: The Final Frontier
"Captain, we have been fooled by the Chinese fleet. We need to go back into orbit and finish the job. Because right now they are trying to break into the Vulcan's mainframe and use it aginst us. they accidentally activated the self-destruct mechanism but I deactivated it and lock down the XSL1's system so that'll buy us time to get up there and take out the rest of em'." TJ explained to the captain. "Remember Sir, you have the most command at this point in time what you decide will decide the rest of this war for us. The Secretary of Defence and General was killed in the missile strike from the Chinese ships." He added. "Yes TJ, I know that! Don't try and pressure me. Okay, I got it. The way I see it...we got two options, either finish the assault on the water-based fleet then take it to the sky, Or make a double attack. Half of the fleet finishes the water fleet and the other half will attack the space troops." Captain Chazz concluded. "Two very great plans Sir, but one problem there will be no communication between the two halves. The ships don't have long distance radio connection. They only have a 3-4 mile radius, and the space half will be moving quickly as the Earth spins." Agent Rog.
Minutes later..."Sir, we need to make a move NOW. They're beginning to bypass the security wall that's locking down the Vulcan." TJ said yelling over the radio. "Okay, I got it. How many LRCM's do we have?" Rog asked "This is the USS John. I got a full loadout." Said Commander TJ "Captain Vorcheski was thrown off balance during the fight aginst the Chinese. She hit her head on the corner of the command console and was killed." Said Commander TJ "Well damn TJ, Youngest Secret Service Agent and now the youngest Warship Commander." Said Rog surprised. "Okay yeah yeah, let's celebrate later. They're up there trying to destroy my XSL1." Said TJ. "Okay Commander TJ launch 5 LRCM at the coordinates of the ship and target it with the Cruise Missiles." Said Rog. "Then while we are going back into orbit the LRCM's We'll be on course. Two attacks at once." Rog added. "Great thinking Agent Rog." Said Captain Chazz.
"Copy Commander, we are go for missile launch. Ready when you are Sir." "Copy launch missiles 1 and 2, wait a minute then launch 3 and 4, and one more minute, then launch the last one." Commander TJ said. "Copy that sir Missiles 1 and 2 are on route to the target. Okay now missiles 3 and 4, alright the last one it going now!" Copy sir all missile are away and on target. We currently have 34 LRCM remaining." "Great Josh." Commander TJ said complimenting the Technology specialist on board. The ship prepared for re-entry into orbit. "Copy Captain Chazz, this is Commander TJ. The have bypassed the lock down system. I have no choice but to reactivate the Self-Destruct mechanism." Tj said hesitantly. "Copy Commander, do what you have to do in order to protect our country." Said Captain Chazz. "All ships from now on whenever we are in orbit we use out ship names and ranks not our personal names." He added. "Copy this is USS Ronny G., order understood." "Copy, this is USS John, order understood." "Copy, this is the USS Rachel, order understood." "All ship prepare for velocity blast! Activate afterburners on my mark. Ready...set...ENGAGE!" All ship activated their afterburners and launched back into orbit. Captain Chazz came over the radio, "Alright let's move around Earth and search for the Chinese attack ships. Once we find them unleash hell upon them." "Alright, Captain I'm activating the XSL1's live feed cam for self-destruct sequence!" TJ almost fell into tears as he said that. "Copy TJ, I know it's going to be hard, but you know what's going to be really bad? If the Chinese get ahold of that Orbital Weapon! So do what you have to do and make it quick...we can mourn later." Captain TJ said trying to be sentimental.
TJ pressed the button that activated the launch for the self-destruct sequence. It counted down from 10 and slowly began to power up as it gathered all of its energy for the launched away from Earth's orbit. When it hit 1 on the countdown, the boosters activated and launched into the depths of space. 20 seconds into the launch, A dark pocket of space lit up with an extravagant red, purple, then yellow. "Damn, I'm gonna miss that thing." Said Captain Jordan. "Alright everyone, just because we don't have our eyes in the sky doesn't mean that we're going to lose this fight." Said Captain Chazz. Out of nowhere came a loud boom followed by screeching alarms! "They're using stealth missiles!!!" One soldier screamed at the top of his lungs! Multiple explosions began pounding the USS Klattuu. "Captain Chazz we need to retreat now!!!" Said Commander TJ. "Alright let's go...get the hell out of here!" Said Captian Chazz. But before anyone could move, a hole appeared at the bow of one of the Chinese destroyer ships. An ever so familiar hole began to charge with a light blue beam. The hole fired a laser pulse at the USS Klattuu! "Captain Screamed over the radio, " We're hit...I repeat we're HIT!" The laser pulse ruptured the hull and the ship was unmovable. "All crew get to the E-Deck and prepare for abandon ship procedure!" Captain Chazz yell over the intercom. All the crew ran to deck E as the prepared the emergency evacuation pods.
"Sir, the USS Klattuu has been hit and is taking on space!" Yelled the First Class Pilot Josh. "Copy that move closer the there evacuation deck and prepare to be boarded. But fire focused on the enemy shi...." Just before Commander TJ could finish his sentence he was interupted by the scream of the Second-in-command Pilot, "INCOMING!!!" **BOOM** The ship crackled with a loud shutter as the vaccumes of space began to suck the air out of the ship. TJ rushed for the emergency oxygen mask before he passed. As his got his sences back he looked around a relized that the evacuation ship never arrived at the USS John. Commander TJ felt lonely as he relized he was the only one alive on his ship. Seconds felt like minutes, minutes felt like hours, hours felt like lifetimes. Andthere was nothing in space, not a sound, not a person, not soul.
