Expansion: The Other Tales

Mirkujn Genocide: Briefing

Gregorian year 3009, 10:06 Earth time.
Mirkun year -2.

The fleet was impressive, the captain thought, so many ships, all born from the minerals of the solar meteor belt, each capable to bomb one megapolis of Earth without risk to them. And despite this, he never did quite like that they were not allowed to forgo the standard UPN.

All other equipment could be camouflaged, thank god, it would not do to lose troops because the bloody beasts saw them coming.

"Sir, the briefing will start soon, I've already set the holographic cameras," The AI spoke, the monotone expected from a 'dumb' military issue AI.

"Good, tell me when it starts," The captain turned to the cameras in front of his door. His image would be transmitted to all the rafts where the troops were about ready to drop to Kepler, their officers would be introducing him about now.

"Now sir."

A pause, images from nine rafts appeared over his doorway, nine from a hundred that would be dropping from his ship.

"Soldiers, today is a historical day, one that will be talked about in history for millennium to come as the day that mankind not only defended but defeated a race that rejected our hand in friendship and attacked those that wanted nothing but to help them progress.

"Our objective is this." The captain pointed at his window, where a display of the Kepler globe enlarged and showed a small village, probably fifty huts, each with primitive weapons in racks on the backyards.

"Fleet intelligence believes that these few huts are one of the major military outposts in this region of the continent. Once the village is under UPN control Theta will transmit each of your COs their order for the next phase of Operation Valhalla.

"You are to kill every single chimp that tries violence, but leave the children alone, we'll need some to help us communicate our reasons when we eliminate the resistance of the apes.

"Some of you may have been surprised by the heavy assault joining the static divisions, you have been assigned to those units because of your multilingualism, you are to learn their language and make them learn one of ours that is easier for them to learn, this are your standing orders, I expect us all but the occupation forces to be back in the ship by the end of the UPN week.

"You depart in ten minutes, and remember, keep your communicators open, and destroy any and all weapons that may be used against us if you are overrun. Dismissed."

The transmition cut off, leaving the captain isolated in his quarters.

"I'll be in the bridge Theta, don't let anyone in."

"I will try my best sir."

Samuel Garbett: I love the style.I love the setting.I love the atmosphere.You've tapped into something fantastic here, from the clearly invested-in characters down to the language used to portray the genre perfectly.I'd consider myself hooked.

Truemy Brewer: Great first chapter! You tell the story dramatically, but not overly and with just the right amount of words.. There is no cut in the action. I do wonder at the ladies male friend from the village, and what happened to him, but I suppose that will be revealed later. This seems like an epic in the...

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

_JosephJacobson_: I don't understand why this has such low ratings. I really enjoyed it!I think that the whole idea behind the plot had something very special and that was something that I really enjoyed. It was new, unique. I think that some of the writing was a little strange in places but overall it made sense ...

Raymond Keith Moon: Great story arc. Nice command of the balance of overview and detail. Feels a bit like a multi-player computer game, but provides satisfying explanations for all the apparent magic. Please keep writing!

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to wordworrywill, author of Kings and Things, an otherwise imaginative tale set against the trappings of the royal set, but then again I don't imagine there'd be many authors who invoked the names of Oprah Winfrey, Vladimir Putin, Jeff Bezos, Beyonce and Steven Spielberg, As for the plot...

AlexaDria: Well I'll be darned! I don't remember the last time I enjoyed a story/novel/book/thing that much! I enjoyed it so much that I finished it in a little over 10 hours... oops! I honestly can't wait to find and read the next one! I want more!!!

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

hypaalicious: This story follows two main characters, Zoey and Derek, on a winding adventure that sucks you in from the beginning. It was easy to get into and get a feel for the world that the author is projecting, as well as all of the warring factions and difference of ideals that would otherwise be very co...

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

Michael L. Blood: It took only a few paragraphs to "hook me" and keep me riveted throughout the remainder of the story. I have read very little if any "short stories" since "Dandelion Wine" and my freshman year in college in the early 70s - this one measures up with the best of them. The author assumes some de...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...
