Deep in Zerg Territory

Private Hudson and I quieted down as we made our way deeper into the alien territory. It wasn’t necessarily a conscious decision on our part, the friendly rapport between us kept us pretty loose while we were pressing forward and I could tell that although Major Rocksun didn’t appreciate the ribbing, he was going along with it and not getting too angry.

As we destroyed the Zerg colonies and the purple ooze on the ground receded, we began to recognize some of the terrain features of what once was Throneworld. We could tell that we were nearing Queen Galacta’s Citadel of Hope. It appears that the Zerg colony itself began near the Citadel, which I could understand. Building your own empire on top of a fallen enemy is all part of the spoils of war and has happened a thousand times over in galactic history. What drew them here, though, was a question I could not answer.

The Zerg along with Eve and the cruiser she was in were all sucked through some sort of time warp. What caused it and how did it occur here? Somehow I just knew that the answer lay ahead. If only we could all survive long enough to find out.

In the meantime, the nuclear strikes took their toll on the Zerg. Their response to our assault was brutal and instinctive, but they just couldn’t compete with our combined firepower after those explosions. From the command center of his tank, Major Rocksun led us and directed our weapons effectively and efficiently.

Eve was cool and efficient with her work, too. It appears that her training and abilities are very well suited for what we are accomplishing here. She and Queen Galacta hit it off pretty well earlier, I am sure that when this is all said and done, Eve will have a place here. It appears that Major Rocksun would appreciate that very much.

Of course, I realize that I haven’t described very much of our battle or provided any good images of our struggle. It’s exhausting the amount of work that we’re doing here. Like I said, our alien enemy is ferocious and relentless, but we are winning. The Cerebrate lies ahead though, and I have no doubt that it is going to be our toughest battle yet destroying that thing.

“Just another day at the office, huh?” I muttered as Zerg exploded in front of my automatic cannons.

All I got in response from Rocksun and Hudson were grunts of affirmative.

Even the most the most exciting jobs can get get boring if you do the same thing over and over. And a long day of blasting zerg will just tucker anyone out.

Take a break, have a beer and then jump bck to it.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

They are, and I definitely could go a for a beer right about now.

Erifia Apoc said...

*Brings Jon a Beer, icy cold. Bright smile.*

See, I can be nice sometimes.

Now, we need to talk about Hudson... Please keep a leash on him.

The Grim Reaper said...

Yeah what was his first name?

Eve looks like she could do some damage with that gun.
