Chapter 13

Opening Scene: July 5th 2820: VOELD ORBIT

12 hours after the Space Battle of NOL, the ALLAINCE Ground forces spearheaded by APEX and lead by General Kandros prepares to take down the Cathedral Force Field.

The Objectives:

1. Assault and remove the Kett from the Cathedral, and save as many Angaran prisoners as possible.

2. Assure that the “Alien” life forms discovered on PAS-48 are exterminated if present..

3. Destroy the Cathedral so it can never be used again.

Scene One: July 5th 2820:  NSS Blood Talon

Fleet Commander Voitan is in the shuttle bay preparing to depart for the surface to lead an 11 APEX Trooper unit including 5 Hydras to the surface to help bring down the Force Field around the Cathedral when Navigator Bowman comes down to the shuttle bay with both a victory present and some disturbing news. The Present is a large cooler filled with rather highly sought after Kadara Exile Ale. She tells Voitan, “Drink the Ale if the mission is a success, you didn’t get a chance to celebrate your victory up here. Use the cooler if things go bad, REALLY BAD. It’s an N7 special ops model, you should be able to find the manual I forwarded to your Power Armor’s VI. It should explain the rest.”

“The disturbing news is the 24 Trooper APEX team with the Hydra you sent to Taerve Uni is now 2 hours overdue on their hourly check ins. Their Survey of the Colony found nothing. Captain Blake and her skeleton crew just disappeared. The Kowloon freighters came and took their shipment of ICE cubes and started their way back to the NEXUS.”
