Chapter 15

A beeping alarm went off and Michael hit the same box button, Michael, “Yes.”, Gross (voice), “Sir, it’s time.”, and Michael and Chloe got up without a fuss and got dressed. The Challenger moved at full impulse from its position with the Federation class starship following behind as they joined the rest of the armada of various starships, Gross, “Sir all stations are on yellow alert and manned and ready.”, helm, “Coordinates locked in and warp power at your command.”, Michael, “Standby.”, they watched the view screen as they followed the rest of the fleet ahead of them, Tu, “Sir Admiral Grosh orders warp 6.”, they watched as the ships ahead of them went to warp till the space ahead of them started to clear, Michael, “Ahead warp factor 6.”, as the remaining ships started warping the Challenger flashed ahead in a blue streak. Ender manned the VerKa in a white jumpsuit and helmet as Petra helped strap him in, Petra, “Are you sure you don’t want me to pilot this?”, Ender just looked at her and tightened his harness, Petra, “Just asking.”, she left as the hatch started to close and the lights and computer systems turned on before him, Petra (voice), “Ender I will monitor your systems and call out any targets or enemy ships or aircraft that try to slip past.”, Ender, “Cool, just don’t act like a backseat driver.”, and they both laughed.

The hanger bay lights changed to red and there was a klaxon alarm, Michael (voice), “Red alert! VerKa prepare for launch once out of warp!”, the gundam locked its feet on the catapult and crouched waiting till there was a sudden jolt and the doors opened, Petra (voice), “VerKa launch!”, and the gundam flew out and once outside Ender maneuvered the VerKa back and landed on top of the body of the Challenger and climbed up the neck. Ender looked ahead and saw various ships ahead (that look like the Imperium of Man starships) that he saw on his display are labeled enemies and they sat ahead facing them as if they were expected. Petra (voice), “Mobile suits from the other ships and Iron Defenders are out and they are at your command.”, Ender (surprised), “Me?”, Petra (voice), “Arsenal said this suit is also built to command other mobile suits and Iron Defenders at your command. Lets show them what Battle School has taught us Endy!”, the VerKa then got on top of the saucer section and made its way to the port side of the bridge, Petra (voice), “I advise you should start by firing your beam rifle lying down till we get close.”, Ender, “Copy.”, he got in position and took aim at the vessel in front of the Challenger, Michael (voice), “Mr. Wiggin this is Captain Valkyrie, the operation begins at your command.”, Ender was a little stunned but his radar beeped as enemy mobile suits started heading towards him and Ender saw them that looked like medieval knights with energy rifles. Ender quickly inputted a command to all mobile suits and Iron Defenders to fire one salvo, Ender, “Fire!”, after the first salvo was fired blasting apart many mobile suits and damaging ships the mobile suits, Iron Defenders and Federation starships attacked. The Challenger flanked by two other starships moved between two Firestone like type ships only they opened up and more mobile medieval suits sprang out and fired a barrage of laser fire at the ships, Petra (voice), “Hand to hand!”, Ender immediately jumped up from his position and pulled out his beam saber as the suits started to charge after him and he swung slicing two suits apart.

One of the starships was able to pull out but the other tried to fight them off but was striped apart and the Challenger passed through the gauntlet as the shields took a beating. Michael held onto his chair as was everybody else on the bridge as the ship jerked and shook from the hits, Michael, “Where’s Galactor?!”, Gross, “On the planet sir! Want to arrange a away team?!”, Michael, “No I want to just sit here, of course I want to arrange a away team! Only I am going!”, the Challenger came out of the barrage firing phasers and torpedoes everywhere and even using tractor beams to throw the medieval mobile suits at their ships or other suits. Then out of nowhere the rebuilt Gundam Epyon appeared right in front of the bridge with his whip and Michael and the others looked shocked as it raised its whip till it was blitzed from the left side by the Iron Giant, Michael, “That’s the second time I’ve seen him! Who the hell is that?!”, before the Epyon could get up the Iron Giant grabbed him, spun him around, and threw him out into space before flying out after him. Michael, “Whoever or whatever he is we are grateful except ENDER!”, the medieval suits kept firing or flying after the VerKa and Ender either sliced them apart or punched and kicked them away. He then grabbed one and flipped over its shoulders before throwing its body at another in space then grabbing another’s arm, flipped it over on the deck and planted the VerKa’s foot on its face crushing it, Ender, “I’m a little busy at the moment!”, and the Challenger was just able to reach the orbit of the conquered planet. Michael, “You have the bridge commander!”, and Michael ran to the turbo lift before Gross or anyone else could respond. On the surface in front of a large palace like building Michael, Arsenal, Carrie, Ryok and the Green Comet materialized but saw they were surrounded by soldiers in robe/armor garb with swords drawn and the Mandarin stood next to Galactor at the top of the steps, Michael, “I guess they are able to block scanners or create a fake signal after all.”, Galactor, “I guess Gabriel couldn’t handle one ship with all the power I gave him. No matter, both disappointments of my family are dead anyways. Kill them!”, Carrie outstretched both her arms and she rose from the ground and various objects on the surrounding landscape were thrown at the Mandarin including some nearby buildings were blown apart and the debris were thrown as well as the Mandarin either dodged them or used his powers and were either diflected away or were blown apart. Arsenal activated his mini guns and small rockets attached to his back and fired on the surrounding soldiers while roaring with delight.
