"Devise a Plan"A Chapter by code241
This is the third chapter on this book, CALC. Hope you like it.
“Inertia dampener systems area back online, sir,” said SB
reporting this important information to his boss. “Really?” he wasn’t expecting anymore good
news after the ship pummeled through space, damaging a lot of the critical systems. “The system is the reason why our ship is slowing
down,” explained SB. “Now how are the
engines going?” the captain asked EO. “”Still
needs repair, sir, but good thing is that we can live longer; I fixed the life
support systems,” reported EO. “Oh…
Captain, the ship’s engines are so badly damaged that we need to manually
repair it.” “Manually?” MT. hasn’t heard
of that word since his elementary days.
“Ok then, send out a probe and repair, ASAP!”
“Sir, the probe is repairing engines as we speak,” said EO,
feeling enlightened by her work. “Now
inform me once the engines and warp engines are finished repairing,” MT. walked
away to go check on SB’s progress. “SB!
What on earth are you doing?!?” “Sorry
sir, just curious,” SB was messing around with the systems beaming
technology. “I was trying to beam a set
of tools for us to survive and food.” “Well,
I had experience with these things and it kills off the power on the ship very
quickly,” the captain explained to the young one. “Give me stats on the power, EO.” “Sir, we have 78% power left for energy, 65%
for thermal energy, and 45% for electricity, or light,” EO briefed them over
the radio. “Oh… and 31% for reserve
power.” Her voice seemed shaky when she
reached reserve power.
“Captain!” a voice shouted from behind him, in a sweet and gentle tone. “The sub-warp engines are fixed sir, and I have changed the damaged chip for the warp engines. We are good to go sir,” EO said positively. Errnn… “The ship is preparing for a descent into CALC planet 505. Prepare to enter atmosphere in 5…” the computer voice began its countdown until they would start increasing velocity. “Beginning descent; please clear the halls, and remain still to avoid any injuries.” The captain was easily annoyed at things that repeated themselves or remained so calm when something terrible was about to happen. “What!?! Descending into a planet?” SB was shocked. “I thought there were none around this are and is owned by CALC too…”
“This is CALC planet 505, may I ask the name of your
commanding officer?” a screen came up with voice and visual feature on the
window, in the bridge. “Code name MT.,
and rank Captain; crew members, Commander SB and Lt. EO.” “Ok you are approved into CALC planet 505, by
the way, I’m Commander DC, and controls operation planet 505.
“Sorry about the simple interrogation, Captain,” Dc
said. “Just trying to keep out the
rebels in CALC around these parts. This
planet is stuck in between the borderlines of our enemy and us.” “I understand, but there is no need to
apologize to me, because you were just doing your job,” MT. understood why
now. “We were attacked earlier today,
about one light warp away from this location.
I think they were the rebels, not our enemies.” DC had an abhorred expression on his face
when MT. said that. “Is there a problem?”
asked EO to DC. “Yes there is,”
said DC, leading them to a debriefing
“First off,” DC started, “These ships with the weird markings on them, happened to attack us 8 months ago, on this planet. It was a pretty big battle, considering that we lost 5 outposts and 6 carriers.” MT. accidentally spat out his coffee when DC said 6 carriers. “You mean you took over 50,000 casualties!?” he asked out the top of his head. “Not exactly because half of them were being repaired, that’s why they built this outpost on this planet,” explained DC, almost causing SB and EO to become surprised as well. “Sorry to interrupt this, but can I speak with Commander DC for a second?” a soldier interrupted the conversation. “Of course,” MT. said casually. DC walked back into the room after a few minutes with the same horrific face he had given to MT., when they were talking about the ships. “What’s wrong?” asked SB. “It appppearrs tthhe shippps aarre commiing again!” he stammered, with the look still on his face. “Well, what are we waiting for then?” asked the captain. “We barely have any supplies to repair your ship, sir,” reported an engineer, as he just walked into the room. “Well, they are still a few light warps off, we have plenty of time to prepare for this…”
