The Birth of Tsukino Enterprises

Post by PrinceKirin » Sun Oct 17, 2004 5:00 am

Less than an hour after the battle of Endor.............

-------Stalaton System, Imperial 197th Task Force in combat with Rebel force------

The Imperial ships were withdrawing, Admiral Setsuna Tsukino had ordered it. Her ISD, the Rei, had barely escaped the whole of the battle in one piece, let alone the five ships along side. Her bridge crew, what was left of it, was busy trying to control the ship to the escape point.

"Admiral, ISD Gristmill is turning back!"

"Communications, find out why!"

"They say the enemy is gaining, they are going to hold them so we can escape."

"Fools! Its suicide!"

She watched the enemy reach the Gristmill and begin to pepper it with heavy fire. Then suddenly the stars around her streaked and it was light years away, she was now saftly in hyperspace.

She flopped down into her office chair a few minutes later. The door, locked behind her, would not admit anyone. She was near tears. Still being one of the youngest admirals in Imperial history, she was also human and had lost many friends.

"They just gave their lives. All dead, all of them. MacBeth never takes prisoners." She shook her head. Little to her knowledge she was about to build a future that would lead to the birth of a nation.
"Yeah, and I stole an ISD. Doesn't mean you should. I am the lunitic around here." LT. CMDR. KIRIN A. TSUKINO

She starred out the view port into the space she so dearly loved. She failed in countless attempts to zone out, but it was to no avail. The damage was so severe to the task force that it was a miracle the ships reactors didn't explode when they jumped into hyperspace. The Rei had only half its original man power, a third of those who remained were wounded.

A knock came to the door and she heard the words of her executive officer.

"Skipper, you in there? Are you all right?"

She unlocked the door allowing him in. He saluted the spoke, "Skipper, we just recieved word that Imperial command considers us all dead."

"Is that supposed to be good new, Captain?"

"Well, it means we finally get that vacation."

A smile crossed Setsuna's face.

"Well, Captain Stoke, do you have a damage report?"

"Its too depressing Skipper. We are making way for P3K, the old station ought to be able to still handle an ISD. Considering it is abandoned, we shall have no trouble there, at least until repairs are complete."

"You assume we are not going back into combat under an Imperial banner?"

"No ma'am, just considering the fact that now the Emperor is dead and many people want his seat of power. We should wait until we actually have one definate leader."

"Wise as always."

Stoke began to step back. He was now in his mid 40's, and extreamly experienced in space warfare. He was even now on the list of Captain considered for promotion.

Setsuna turned back to her view port.

"Skipper, they fought well, they died well." Stoke said.

A tear finally rolled from her eye.

"See now Setsuna, well get MacBeth yet. Our friends sacrifice has not been envain."

The Rei and the remaining ships dropped from hyperspace at P3K. System P3K had a large space station in orbit. The station was abandoned by the imps, along with the sector, five months ago after a devastating attack by the rebel Black Nova Squadron. They devastated the ground station and severely damaged several docked ISD's. Since then, the station hasn't had a living thing on it.

The Rei pulled into the station and mored itself in an orbital dry dock. The other ships docked around at various docks and dry docks as well. At this point, Setsuna ordered all senior officers to the stations command room where they would discuss their next move.

Setsuna walked swiftly but without courage. She had lost her task force and now must guide the survivors to their place in the universe. But how?

In the station's command room, several officers, including multiple captains and many lieutenants, stood waiting for news. Setsuna and Stoke finally entered and sat down. She looked at the quiet group. Some of the men were burned, others bleeding, and one was even on a cruch, with bandages on his legs, arms, torso, and head.

Setsuna breathed deep and then asked her officers the first question.

"I lead a fleet of 20 ships into battle, earlier this evening. Two taskforces combined into one. There were 2 isd's, 4 escort carriers, 4 vsd's, 1 medical frigate, 1 interdictor, and 8 nebulon-b's. There was even a support task force of corvett's and cargo ships. All I know is that only four ships escaped. I see nine captain's. Please identify youself, your ship, and her condition. Well?"

"I am Captain Stoke, ISD Rei, she is in bad shape, but moored at dock three."

"Captain Madison, VSD Levi, I ordered my ship abandoned after critical damage came to our reactors."

"Captain Dawson, Neb-b Steal, Moored at dock 6 and in bad shape."

"Captain Bison, VSD Assault, we took a beating but were moored at Dock 7."

"Captain Harrison, Neb-b Venger, she was destroyed."

"Captain Bowmen, Neb-b Stangler, she is moored at dock one."

"Captain Yushigawa, Escort Carrier Beamer, she was destroyed while being evacuated."

"Captain Fansworth, Nebulon-b Victor, abandoned after hull breaches threatened to tear us in two."

"Captain Jameson, Corvette Strength, scuttled in attempt to destroy Mon Cal. If I may add, my ship's sacrifice destroyed that old rebel rust bucket! May it be said for all of us, that we fought bravely."

Setsuna looked at the captains and almost began to speak, but she noticed a man limp in.

"Captain Kadmira, Corvette Fugitive, we managed to escape and make it here just now. The Rei's watch told me where to go. I'm sorry ma'am. Half my crew has parished, along with my senior officers. CVT Fugitive is moored behind the Strangler."

"Its good to have you Captain. Have you anything to report?"

"The rebs were all over us, Admiral. I dont think anyone else survived. The Gristmill was adrift, but her gunners still manned the stations when we left."

Setsuna looked to Stoke with a heavy gloom, waiting for the report of who didn't make it.

He sighed before speaking, "ISD Pounder, Neb-b's Trophy, Ketral went down with all hands on the retreat. All other non accounted for ships, with MacBeth's colorful history in mind, have been destroyed with all hands."

"We won't be returning to the Empire." Setsuna finally said aloud.

"With the Emporer dead, there will be hundreds fighting over his throne. Organization of the fleet has been completely scrambled. Com channels are crowded with confusion and we, the entire 218th, is considered dead. If any of you want to go back, let me know now." Setsuna finished.

Silence follwed, and a longer silence endured.

The Bowman spoke up, "I spoke with my crew and had a vote taken on out way here on whether we go back or not. We decided not to go back and not one crewman wanted to."

"Did Stoke put all of you up to this vote?" Setsuna questioned.

"Aye!" the room sounded.

"And did you all achieve the same result?" Setsuna asked., following up her previous question.

"Aye!" the room sounded again.

"Who would be incharge of our little...hmmm.....community?" She asked again.

Captain Dawson stood, "We were actually thinking, hoping you would. We've been under your command for a year and now see how great a leader you are. I personally pledge my service to you...and my life and I assure you that my crew feels the same."

"Here here!" the room sounded.

Setsuna blushed at the suggestion and apparent appointment.

"Very well captains, I will be your leader." She said, really smiling for the first time since the battle. "We need a way to support ourselves. Food primarily. We were due back in port for supplies in three months, the staion has enough to extend that for a while. I think we should unload all the extra combat material from the ships to make room in our cargo holds. After that and repairs, we should set up a shipping company type of thing until we are better organized."
