Chapter 1

The Challenger then appeared out of warp and is already approaching Yaraka, Gross, “Shields up sir. I also detect gun batteries on the planet’s moon.”, Michael, “Do they pose a threat?”, Gross, “Negative when...they are firing!”, orange/yellow balls of light hit the Challenger but only hitting the shields causing the ship to shack moderately, Michael, “Weapons take care of them.”, phasers fired from the Challenger causing multiple explosions on the moon’s surface, weapons, “Batteries neutralize sir.”, Michael, “Standard orbit helm.”, the Challenger achieved orbit around Yaraka. Michael stood up from his chair and proceeded towards the turbo lift, Michael, “Notify Arsenal to have my vehicle ready, I’m going down myself. Your orders are to bore through the city and NERV complex and destroy this Lilith using phasers and torpedoes.”, Gross, “But...”, the turbo lift doors closed before she finished. Michael entered the shuttle bay and found a pod in a shape of a torpedo, Michael, “So Arsenal is myself favorite vehicle ready?”, Arsenal nodded and grunted, Michael (looking at him puzzled), “Dude you need to start working on speaking more. It’s already driving me crazy.”, Arsenal, “Yes.”, Michael rolled his eyes and sighed as he sat inside, Michael (as he strapped himself in), “Once I leave notify the bridge to give me ten minutes before proceeding as planned.”, Arsenal, “Yes. Good luck captain.”, Michael looked at him as if touched jokingly, Michael, “Oh Arsenal how sweet, from someone who I believe did not believe in luck.”, Arsenal, “I don’t. Only to make you feel better.”, Michael, “Why?”, Arsenal, “Never tested this vehicle or capsule.”, the alert sounded for the shuttle bay doors about to open as the capsule door closed with Michael in a look of shock and Arsenal walked out of the bay, Michael, “Wait a minute!”, the doors opened when Arsenal is out and the capsule was instantaneously launched as Michael screamed out “ARSENAL!” and Arsenal smirked and made a grunting laugh.

The capsule flew through the atmosphere and sped down at high speed towards a road inside the city that is now going into lockdown. The pod was about to hit the road until the pod broke apart to reveal a DeLorean and landed on its wheels. Michael then hit the gas and proceeded to the car elevator to get into Nerv Central and on the way he encountered a barricade of four government vehicles with men pulling out their rifles and aimed at him and fired only for the bullets to bounce of the bulletproof car and glass. He then pushed a button on the dashboard and the front headlights switched to missiles and he pressed the top of his shifter (after flipping the top cap) and two missiles fired and the whole barricade was blown sky high including the armed men and sped through the debris and flames and heard an alarm sound and a beep from his built in communicator next to the radio. Michael, “I take it that it’s my welcoming committee.”, Gross, “Sir we detect an angel approaching the city. I advise you pull out till they have handled it.”, Michael, “Too late I’m going in.”, he then sees a large door closing off the tunnel and he speeds up and two more government black trucks appeared alongside. Michael then pushed a red button on the dashboard and four laser beams from four hubcaps fired on two tires on each car and the sides of the cars exploded. As the vehicles flipped over away he kept driving (trying to beat the door) and sped right on through just as the door scrapped the top of the car and the DeLorean was instantly locked on the car elevator as Michael hit the brakes.

As the elevator proceeded down he noticed a cable car speeding downwards as well. Michael pressed a button on the middle console and touched the windshield to zoom in on the cable car and saw Shinji, Asuka, Gendo and five men black suits and glasses. Michael looked around trying to think what to do to get to them but can’t find any way till he looked up as an idea struck him, Michael, “Arsenal is going to hate me.”, on the cable car the men held both Shinji and Asuka as Gendo took a gun from one of his men, Gendo, “You have no idea the importance of this project Shinji. This girl you have a crush on has been in contact with an angel and possess a threat to our society and us.”, Shinji blushed as Asuka looked away angered, Gendo, “She now must die before she makes contact with that angel.”, Shinji, “Father no! She survived she’s not an angel! Where is Ayanami? You know where she is!”, Gendo, “She is none of your concern.”, he then started pointing the gun at Asuka and Shinji tried to squirm of the men’s hands holding him down as Asuka called out his name, Shinji, “DAD DON’T DO IT!”, Gendo, “Sorry EVA pilot but you are a means to an end.”, Michael put a metal pole between the seat and the brake as well as the accelerator as he opened the door and got on top of the car hot wiring the red button on the gear shift to two wires and in one moment he connected the wire tips and the lasers on the tires fired again blowing the locks and he yanked one of the wires and the pole holding the brake was let go and the car skyrocketed high in the air and fell as both the cable car and Michael with in the middle of the air inside the dome. As Gendo pointed the gun to Asuka (now scared) Shinji screamed “NO!”, guard, “What the...”, Michael jumped from the top of the DeLorean in midair and started firing a .43 Magnum where one bullet hit the guard in the forehead and hit another holding Asuka through the temple as he unloaded his handgun with the rest of the bullets hitting the windows as he screamed and the DeLorean smashed through the forward top of the cable car, crushed it and tore the forward half off as the car then continued to fall and Michael smashed through the roof and landed on another guard holding Shinji.

The cable car stopped and teatter tottered back and forth and as one guard jumped Michael they both slid down he elbowed the guard in the face before grabbing one of bars below the seating chairs and the guard slid out as screamed as he fell to his death. Shinji tried to grab the other guard but he shoved Shinji off and Asuka clawed the guard in the face before kneeing him between the legs and shoved him forward and he flew forward and down screaming to his death. Gendo held the middle beam and tried pointing again at Asuka only to have a blade cut at his hand and he drops it as he yelps and the gun slides off the car. Michael immediately throws the blade away and draws another gun and points it at Gendo’s face, Michael, “Shinji, Asuka are you alright?”, Shinji, “We’re good, but who are you?”, Michael, “Let’s just say I’m a concerned citizen.”, Asuka, “Bull! What you did back there was crazy! We deserve an explanation!”, Michael, “I’ll tell you both later. Now I am here to arrest Gendo Ikari for crimes against humanity.”, they all looked at him confused, Michael, “It’s over Mr. Gendo, this project of wiping out humanity in order to bring your wife back from the dead sacrificing an innocent girl in the process is at an end. And we both know that this angel that is approaching is not an angel but a angel designed by the corporation to kill you all and use Lilith to destroy humanity and save their own skins.”, Gendo, “I don’t believe you.”, all of a sudden a section of the overhead exploded and a jellyfish like angel glided in and started proceeding towards the pyramid like base when all of a sudden a phaser blast hit the back of the angel and it cried out before turning back and out of the smoke and falling debris the Challenger flew in at full impulse power. The angel made a loud moan and swung one of it’s tentacles striking the Challenger but made a spark effect as the tentacle hit it’s shields and the angel cried out again as the Challenger wobbled while on the bridge the ship shook violently throwing some crewmen to the side, Gross, “FIRE TORPEDOES! EVASIVE MANUEVERS!”, the Challenger moved side to side firing torpedoes at the angel knocking it back a little but not dealing enough damage and the angel continued swinging its tentacles as the Challenger moved side to side dodging them sometimes grazing the shields, Gross, “Fire both phasers and torpedoes! Cut off all engines and nonessential systems and put it all on the phasers!”, helm, “Ma’m that will...”, Gross, “DO IT!”, helm pressed various buttons and the ship shifted to a sudden stop and as weapons pressed two buttons the Challenger fired both phasers and torpedoes blasting through the protective shield of the angel and hitting its center mass causing it to screech in pain and it temporarily stopped waving it’s tentacles trying to recover, Gross, “NOW!”, the Challenger fired both weapons again blasting apart the tentacles and a phaser blast barreling a large hole from the bottom and exploding out the top causing the angel to fall dead in a lake that is red LCL. Gross, “Hail the...”, helm, “Ma’m an EVA unit is surfacing and it appears to be on autopilot!”, EVA 00 surfaced on the railing system next to NERV central.
