TUESDAY 2045/06/14                      
                                        
JOHN ARCHER RAN TO HIS CONTROLS AND     
TRIED TO BREAK THE SHIP AS IT FELL DOWN 
AGAINST ATHAREIS. FALCONER TRIED OVER   
AND OVER AGAIN TO GET THE ENGINES GOING 
BUT TO LATE AS THE ´MARIAH´ ALREADY HAD 
ENTERED ATHAREIS' ATMOSPHERE.           
DYER ACTIVATED THE HEAT-SHIELDS MANUALLY
AND HIS MOVE SAVED THE SHIP FROM BURNING
UP DURING THE ENTRY.                    
´27000 KILOMETRES AND CLOSING´ REPORTED 
MILES AS THEY SAW THE PLANETS SURFACE   
APPROACHING SCARELY FAST UNDER THEM.    
´DON'T WORRY! WE'LL BE DOING JUST FINE!´
IT WAS DYER WHO SAT BACK IN HIS CHAIR   
AND LOOKED LIKE NOTHING HAD HAPPENED.   
´NOT IF OUR FRIEND ARCHER HERE WILL DO  
AS HE HAS LEARNED IN SCHOOL´            
JOHN ARCHER DID NOT LIKE DYERS WAY TO   
EXPRESS HIMSELF, BUT SINCE THIS WAS NO  
TIME TO ARGUE HE DIDN'T BOTHER TO SAY   
SOMETHING. HE MADE THE SHIPS NOSE       
POINTING RIGHT DOWN AGAINST THE GROUND. 
´LUCKY FOR US ARCHYBOY HAS DONE HIS     
HOMEWORK TODAY´ RESPONSED DYER TO       
ARCHERS MANOUVRE.                       
´STOP THAT OR I'LL REPORT YOU TO THE    
A.O.I-HEADQUARTERS´ PALMER SAID TIRED   
SICK ON DYERS COMMENTS.                 
´OK, CHIEF!´ CHRIS SAID WITH A SMILE.   
AS THEY APPROACHED THE SURFACE, JOHN    
ARCHER PREPARED TO DO A ADVANCED        
MANOUVRE IN ORDER TO SAVE THE SHIP FROM 
A SERIOUS CRASHLANDING.                 
´24000 KM´ SAID MILES TO NO USE AS      
EVERYONE WAS WATCHING THE INSTRUMENTS   
CLOSELY. ARCHER SHIFTED HIS HELMS IN A  
90 DEGREE ANGLE AND THE SHIP GAINED     
SPEED AS IT TURNED IT'S NOSE POINTING   
AGAINST THE HORIZON. WITH NO ENGINES    
THOUGH, THE LANDING WOULD BE HARD.      
AS GROUND WAS APPROACHING, EVEN THE     
OTHERWISE SO CALM GARY MILES TOOK OF    
HIS HEADSET AND PREPARED FOR THE        
COLLISION.                              
´OK BOYS. TIME FOR 5.4 ON THE RICHTER-  
SCALE´ ARCHER SAID AS HE CHOOSED PLACE  
FOR TOUCH-DOWN. HE DIVED OVER THE TOP OF
A MOUNTAIN AND AS HE PUSHED EVERYTHING  
THE SHIP COULD GIVE AFTER THE SKY-DIVE  
AS THE PILOTS CALLED RE-ENTRY IN A      
ATMOSPHERE AND LANDING WITH NO ENGINES. 
´HOW CAN THEY COMPETE IN A EVENT LIKE   
THIS´ HE SAID TO HIMSELF PROMISING THAT 
HE WOULD NEVER EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING   
A TRIP LIKE THIS AGAIN.                 
HE HADN'T TIME TO THINK ANYMORE SINCE   
THE SHIP NOW BEGAN TO TOUCH THE SURFACE 
BELOW. HE NOW CHANGED HIS MIND ABOUT THE
IDEA OF CHOOSING A DESERT FOR LANDING-  
PLACE. THE BRAKE WOULD BE SO INTENSE    
THAT HE PROBABLY WOULD FLY INTO HIS     
CONTROLS BUT THERE WAS NO CHOICE TO BE  
MADE NOW. AS THE SHIP CAME DOWN, HE     
THREW HIMSELF TO THE FLOOR. ´MARIAH´    
SLID SOME 50 METRES AND THEN BUMPED INTO
A SMALL ROCK.                           
´THAT WAS REAL FUN!´ SAID DYER AND STOOD
UP. HE WALKED AGAINST THE AIRLOCK BUT   
THEN SUDDENLY HE FELT UNEASY.           
´ANYONE KNOWS IF WE CAN BREATH THE DAMN 
ATMOSPHERE IN THIS PROLE-HOLE?´         
´SURE YOU CAN! BUT DON'T THINK IT'S     
GOOD FOR YOUR LUNGS´ ANSWERED DOUG.     
DYER OPENED THE AIRLOCK AND THE OTHERS  
FOLLOWED HIM. THE WORLD OUTSIDE HAD A   
SMELL OF EVIL BUT NO ONE COULD TELL WHAT
IT WAS.                                 
AFTER GATHERING SOME EQUIPMENT THEY     
STARTED TO WALK. NO ONE COULD TELL WHERE
BUT EVERYONE REALISED THEY HAD TO GO    
SOMEWHERE.                              
                                        
THURSDAY 2045/06/16                     
                                        
AFTER WALKING FOR TWO DAYS, FOOD AND    
WATER WAS RUNING OUT. EXCEPT FOR SOME   
BUSHES, ALL THEY HAD WALKED THROUGH WAS 
PURE DESERT. SUDDENLY ARCHER SAW A      
VEHICLE AT THE HORIZON. IT WAS MOVING   
VERY FAST AND CAME IN THEIR DIRECTION.  
´SHALL WE RUN OR STAY HERE AND PRAY´    
HE SAID. EVERYBODY FELT BOTH FEAR AND   
RELIEF AS THE VEHICLE STOPPED IN FRONT  
OF THEM. IT WAS A LSS-21 SAND VESSEL.   
A KIND OF CAR WICH WAS ONE OF THE MOST  
USED VEHICLES ON PLANETS CONTAINING     
DESERTS. IT IS A AVARAGE SIZED VEHICLE  
USING JET-ENGINES TO GAIN MAXIMUM SPEED.
SIX ARMED GUARDS CAME OUT FROM THE      
VESSEL AND LOOKED AT THE A.O.I-MEN.     
´PLEASE COME WITH US´ SAID THE MAN WHO  
APPEARED TO BE THE LEADER. ALL OF THE   
ASSEMBLERS STARTED TO WALK TOWARDS THE  
VESSEL. AFTER A LONG TRIP IN DISTANCE,  
BUT A SHORT ONE IN TIME THEY ARRIVED TO 
WHAT SEEMED TO BE A CITY. THEY WHERE    
TAKEN TO A ROOM AND THEN, WITHOUT A WORD
THEIR GUARDS WENT OUT AND LOCKED THE    
DOOR.                                   
´YOU THINK WE'VE BEEN FOOLED?´ SAID     
MILES. HE DIDN'T LIKE THIS AT ALL.      
´NO, I THINK WE ARE PLAYING 'FIND THE   
KEY'´ DYER SAID ANGRY. ´OR MAYBE IT IS  
A SAFETYMEASURE´ HE ADDED.              
THEY HEARD SOMEONE PUTTING A KEY INTO   
THE DOOR AND OPEN IT. A TALL, RATHER    
FAT MAN CAME IN. HE WAS WEARING A       
UNIFORM AND HE SEEMED TO BE SOME KIND OF
GENERAL OR SOMETHING.                   
´THE GREAT ASSEMBLERS OF INFINITY´ HE   
SAD WITH IRONY AND LAUGHED.             
´MY FRIENDS, IS THIS THE END?´ HE SAID  
REALLY ENJOYING THE SITUATION.          
NONE OF THE ASSEMBLERS SAID ANYTHING.   
´DON'T WORRY! I DON'T WANT ANY TROUBLE  
WITH THE U.S.P AND YOU KNOW THAT.       
ACTUALLY, I'M GOING TO FREE YOU.´       
ARCHER LOOKED SUSPICIOUS AT THE MAN.    
´HOW CAN WE TRUST THAT, WHEN WE DON'T   
EVEN KNOW YOUR NAME YET?´ HE SAID.      
AS IF HE HAD SAID SOMETHING FUNNY, THE  
MAN IN THE UNIFORM BEGAN TO LAUGH.      
´YES! ACTUALLY YOU ARE RIGHT!´ HE SAD   
HAPPILY. ´I'M RAMANUS, LEADER OF THE    
PROUD PLANET OF ATHAREIS.´ HE STOPPED   
LAUGHING AND TURNED TO A YOUNGER        
SUB-LIEUTENANT.                         
´TAKE YOUR MEN AND GET OUT!´            
´BUT SIR, WHAT IF...´                   
´NO NOTHING!!! IT'S AN ORDER!´ HE NEARLY
SCREAMED.                               
´OK. BUT DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU    
SIR.´ HE SAID AND LEFT WITH HIS MEN.    
AFTER HE HAD GONE, RAMANUS LOOKED AT THE
ASSEMBLERS. EVERYONE KNEW IT WAS A MOVE 
OF PRESTIGE AND POWER SO THEY WAITED FOR
HIM TO SAY SOMETHING.                   
´NOW WHEN WE ARE ALONE, I THINK WE CAN  
USE A MORE PRIVATE CONVERSATION INSTEAD 
OF THE BUREAUCRATIC CRAP´ HE SAID IN A  
VERY FRIENDLY TONE. THEY WERE ALL       
SUPRISED OF THIS SUDDEN CHANGE.         
´LET'S GET TO THE POINT, SHALL WE? AS   
YOU ALL PROBABLY KNOW, THE SITUATION    
BETWEEN US AND THE PEOPLE AT THE        
GELIAN II ISN'T THE BEST. THE CONFLICT  
IS BASED ON THAT THE GELIANS ARE        
DISTRIBUTING A DRUG, THE 'ASTRORIDE',   
TO OUR PLANET. IT'S A TERRIBLE DRUG!    
YOU TAKE IT ONCE AND YOU NEED ONE PILL  
EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!    
WE HAVE DEVELOPED A MASSIVE REHABILIT-  
ATION PLAN, BUT THE MORE PEOPLE WHO     
GETS CLEAN, THE MORE GARRAK AND HIS     
MEN DELIVER 'ASTRORIDE'. WE CAN'T PROVE 
ANYTHING SINCE THEY REFUSE US TO COME   
NEAR GELIAN II, BUT WE ARE 100 PERCENT  
SURE ABOUT THIS.´ HE MADE A SHORT BREAK 
TO SEE THE REACTION OF THE ASSEMBLERS.  
´WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR SOMEONE LIKE  
YOU TO SHOW UP, AND WE ARE VERY HAPPY   
THAT YOU ARE HERE. IF YOU WANT TO, YOU  
ARE FREE TO GO, BUT WE BEG YOU, PLEASE! 
PLEASE HELP US!´ AND THE POWERFUL MAN   
WHO JUST A FEW MINUTES AGO WAS LAUGHING 
AT THEIR MISTAKE WAS NOW BEGGING THEM   
FOR HELP.                               
´WHY DON'T YOU GO THROUGH U.S.P?´       
IT WAS 'ALWAYS-BY-THE-BOOK' PALMER WHO  
ASKED. RAMANUS LOOKED LIKE THE QUESTION 
WAS THE MOST STUPID HE HAD EVER HEARD.  
´WE CAN'T! AS I SAID WE HAVE NOT A      
SINGLE EVIDENCE OF WHAT IS GOING ON.´   
´CAN YOU LEAVE THIS ROOM FOR A WHILE SO 
WE CAN DISCUSS THIS IN PRIVACY?´        
´YES. OFCOURSE. I'LL COME BACK IN 5     
MINUTES´ SAID RAMANUS LOW-VOICED.       
HE CLOSED THE DOOR AND THEY WERE ALONE. 
´THIS IS INSANE! I'M NOT GOING TO HELP  
THIS MANIAC, EVEN IF WE WERE ON MISSION 
BY U.S.P´ SAID DYER.                    
´COME ON! IN THE ASSEMBLERS OF INFINITY 
STATUTE, IT CLEARLY SAYS THAT 'A TEAM OF
A.O.I SHALL ALWAYS HELP IF ANY SIGN OF  
EVIL, IMPROPER USE OF LEADERSHIP,       
OPPRESSION OR CRIMINALITY HAS OCCURED'  
AND THOSE RULES ARE MADE FOR US TO      
FOLLOW EVEN THOUGH WE ARE NOT HIRED BY  
THE U.S.P FOR THE MISSION.´ OFCOURSE IT 
WAS PALMER WHO HAD SPOKEN. HE WAS A     
LEGEND WHEN IT CAME TO KNOWING RULES,   
LIABILITIES AND OTHER BUREAUCRATIC      
BUSINESS.                               
´WELL, WHY NOT? IF WE CAN GET A SHIP TO 
GO HOME WITH, I SAY WE ACCEPT!´         
AFTER A WHILE CAME RAMANUS BACK.        
´SO? WHAT IS YOUR RESPONCE?´ HE SAID AND
EVERYBODY COULD TELL THAT HE WAS VERY   
NERVOUS.                                
´WE ACCEPT, IF YOU WILL GIVE US A SHIP  
TO GO HOME WITH!´                       
´OFCOURSE! OFCOURSE! YOU'LL GET EVERY-  
THING YOU NEED´ RAMANUS NEARLY SHOUTED. 
´MY EXPERTS HAVE DEVELOPED A PLAN TO    
DESTROY THE FACTORY. WOULD YOU LIKE TO  
HEAR IT?´                               
´LOOK, WE ARE AN ASSEMBLERS OF INFINITY 
TEAM OF THE 3RD GRADE, AND WE KNOW HOW  
TO DESTROY FACTORIES.´ DYER SAID. HE WAS
NEARLY ANGRY BY THE FACT THAT RAMANUS   
DIDN'T TRUST THEM ON A MISSION OF SUCH  
IMPORTANCE.                             
´YOU CAN'T GET IN, BOMB THE BUILDING AND
THEN GET OUT! THE FACTORY IS PROTECTED  
BY SEVERAL IN-AIR SPACECRAFTS AND IT'S  
ARMOUR IS IN INCREDIBLE. WHEN THEY WERE 
TESTING IT, THEY SHOOT A REC-1 MISSILE  
DIRECTLY AT THE FACTORY AND NOT A SINGLE
JAR BROKE INSIDE.´                      
´WHAT HAVE WE AGREED TO?´ SAID PETE     
SAARELAHT.                              
´DON'T WORRY! AS WE SAID, WE HAVE THE   
RIGHT PLAN AND YOU ARE THE RIGHT MEN TO 
DO IT.´                                 
ARCHER WHO HAD BEEN SILENT UNTIL NOW    
SAT BACK IN HIS CHAIR AND SAID:         
´LET'S HEAR IT!´                        
´OK. WE HAVE TO MAKE THIS LOOK AS A BAD 
PLANNED TERRORIST-ATTACK. SINCE NO ONE  
ON GELIAN II WANTS THE FACTORY GONE, WE 
HAVE TO BLOW UP A WATER-RESERVOIR 7 KM  
ABOVE THE FACTORY. FIRST, IT'S A PERFECT
PLACE FOR A TERRORISTACT AND SECOND, THE
POWER OF THE WATER CAN DESTROY THE DRUG-
CENTRAL BETTER THAN ANY OF YOUR GUNS.   
ANYWAY, SINCE NO AIRTRAFFIC IS ALLOWED  
IN A RANGE OF 10 MILES AROUND THE       
FACTORY, YOU HAVE TO LET OUR EXPERT AND 
ONE, MAYBE TWO, OF YOUR MEN OFF VERY    
FAST.´ HE PLACED A MAP ON THE TABLE.    
´IF YOU COME IN FROM HERE, YOU CAN FLY  
TO THE LAKE HERE, DROP THE CREW OFF IN  
THE LAKE (YOU WILL GET A SHIP THAT CAN  
GO LOWER THAN 200 KM/H AND IN A TURN, I 
THINK THAT WOULD BE SLOW ENOUGH TO JUMP 
OUT OF A VESSEL INTO WATER. ON PICK-UP, 
YOU'LL DO THE SAME THING, BUT THIS TIME 
YOU HAVE TO HOVER ABOVE THE LAKE WHILE  
HOISTING UP YOUR MEN.´                  
THEY DISCUSSED AND PLANNED THE MISSION  
FOR A FEW HOURS AND THEY MET THE EXPERT 
WHO WOULD ADAPT THE EXPLOSIVES WHEN     
DESTROYING THE RESERVOIR. ACTUALLY, IT  
WAS A FEMALE WHO WERE THE EXPERT. DYER  
WAS OFCOURSE FULL OF CONTEMPTION, BUT   
SHE HAD FACED THAT PROBLEM MANY TIMES IN
HER PROFFESION SO SHE DIDN'T CARE.      
AFTER GETTING A FAST VESSEL AND PLAN THE
MISSION MANY TIMES OVER AGAIN THEY WERE 
FINALLY HEADING FOR GELIAN II. BOTH DYER
AND PETE SAARELAHT HAD THE FEELING THAT 
SOMETHING FISHY WAS GOING ON, BUT AS SO 
MANY TIMES BEFORE, PALMER DIDN'T LISTEN 
TO THEIR NAGGING ABOUT IT.              
                                        
FRIDAY 2045/06/17                       
                                        
AS THE VESSEL WAS FLYING VERY LOW WITH  
A VERY HIGH SPEED, ALL OF THE ASSEMBLERS
AND ALSO THE EXPLOSIVES-EXPERT, MEDINA, 
WERE CONCENTRATED ON THEIR MISSION. AS  
THEY APPROACHED THE LAKE WHERE MILES,   
FALCONER AND MEDINA WERE ABOUT TO JUMP. 
THEY ALL LOOKED AT THE EXPERT WHO HAD TO
GO WITH THEM ON THIS MISSION. HER NAME  
DIDN'T COME FROM THE ATHAREIS, THEY WERE
ALL SURE OF THAT BUT NO ONE COULD TELL  
WHAT WAS WRONG WITH HER. THEY ALL KNEW  
THERE WAS SOMETHING MYSTERIOUS ABOUT HER
BUT THEY DIDN'T BOTHER TO DISCUSS IT.   
SHE WAS RATHER TALL, DARK-HAIRED AND SHE
LOOKED LIKE EVERYTHING EXCEPT AN EXPERT 
ON BLOWING UP WATER-RESEVOIRS.          
THEIR VESSEL BRAKED UNTIL THEY WERE DOWN
TO 217 KM/H AND JOHN ARCHER DIDN'T WANT 
TO PUSH HER LIMITS ANYMORE SINCE HE     
ALREADY FELT THAT HE WAS LOOSING CONTROL
OVER THE STEARING.                      
THE THREE OF THEM JUMPED AT THE SAME    
TIME AND FLEW SOME HUNDRED METRES       
FORWARD BEFORE THEY HIT THE SURFACE.    
AFTER A BREATHTAKING SWIM AND A RATHER  
LONG WALK THEY FINALLY REACHED THEIR    
TARGET - THE IONA WATER-RESERVOIR.      
MEDINA STARTED ADAPTING THE EXPLOSIVES. 
AFTER ABOUT 15 MINUTES SHE WAS FINISHED 
AND THEY STARTED TO TAKE OFF TOWARDS THE
LAKE WHERE THEY WOULD BE PICKED UP.     
THEY WOULD ACTIVATE THE EXPLOSIVES BY   
REMOTE AND UNTIL NOW, EVERYTHING SEEMED 
TO BE CALM. AS THEY RAN THROUGH THE     
FOREST MILES SUDDENLY HEARD VOICES AND  
STOPPED. DOUG FALCONER MADE HIS RIFLE   
READY TO FIRE AND MEDINA GRABBED HER    
REMOTE-CONTROL. THEY WERE ALL VERY TENSE
AS THE VOICES CAME CLOSER.              
´IF IT IS ONE OF THE GELIAN GUARDPATROLS
WE ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE´ SAID MEDINA  
VERY UNNECESSARY SINCE THEY ALL UNDER-  
STOOD WHAT THE VOICES WERE.             
´WE BETTER TAKE SOME COVER´ SAID MILES  
AND LOOKED FOR SOMETHING TO HIDE BEHIND.
A BIG FALLEN TREE WAS THE PERFECT COVER 
AND AS THE VOICES CAME CLOSER, FALCONER 
AIMED AT THE DIRECTION WITH HIS RIFLE.  
SOMEHOW, THE PATROL HAD FOUND SOMETHING 
MORE INTERESTING TO LOOK FOR AS THEY    
SET OFF TO EAST.                        
THEY HAD JUST REACHED THE LAKE AS THEY  
SAW THE ASSEMBLERS' VESSEL SWEEPING     
OVER THE TREES. MEDINA WALKED INTO THE  
WATER AND AS THE WATER REACHED HER      
THIGHS SHE PULLED OUT THE ANTENNA ON HER
REMOTE. SHE PRESSED TWO BUTTONS AND AS A
NOISE, A KIND OF THUNDER, SHIVERED      
THROUGH THE FOREST, SHE THREW AWAY THE  
CONTROL AND CONTINUED WADING OUT IN THE 
WATER.                                  
AS THE SHIP HOVERED 20 METRES OVER THE  
SURFACE, THE THREE OF THEM CLIMBED UP   
ON A ROPE. SINCE THE GUARDING TROUPS WAS
TRYING TO SAVE THE DRUGFACTORY THEY     
MANAGED TO GET OUT OF THE GELIAN        
ATMOSPHERE WITHOUT CONFRONTATIONS.      
´CAPTAIN, CAN I HAVE PERMISSION TO GO   
INTO THE SECURITY AREA AND GET MY HAIR  
FIXED AND CHANGE INTO SOME DRY CLOTHES´ 
SAID MEDINA AS IF NOTHING OF JUST HAD   
HAPPENED REALLY HAD HAPPENED. PALMER    
COULD NOT UNDERSTAND HER AT ALL. A FEW  
MINUTES AGO, SHE HAD BEEN PUTTING HER   
LIFE ON A LINE BLOWING A DRUGFACTORY OUT
AND NOW SHE WANTED TO FIX HER HAIR!?    
´EH... SURE. ANYTHING YOU WANT.´ HE SAID
VERY CONFUSED. AS SHE HAD GONE DYER'S   
FACE SUDDENLY CHANGED FROM A SMILE TO A 
VERY SERIOUS EXPRESSION.                
´SIR, YOU KNOW WHEN I TOLD YOU I THOUGHT
THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG?´              
´YES. WHAT IS IT?´                      
´ACCORDING TO THE U.S.P COMPUTER WICH I 
MANAGED TO ACCESS FROM HERE, IT'S NOT   
THE GELIANS, BUT THE PLANET ATHAREIS    
THAT EXPORT DRUGS.´                     
´WHAT??? WHAT SHOULD THAT MEAN?´        
´THAT WE JUST HAVE BLEWN UP A FACTORY   
MAKING A CURE FOR THE DRUG.´            
´ARE YOU SURE?´                         
´100 PERCENT SIR´ DYER SAID SADLY.      
A FLASHING LIGHT BLINDED THE ASSEMBLERS.
´SHIT! SHE TOOK THE EMERGENCY SHUTTLE!´ 
SAARELAHT YELLED.                       
´THAT MEANS, THAT THIS VESSEL IS ARMED  
AND READY TO EXPLODE ANY MINUTE!´ SAID  
DYER AND YOU COULD NEARLY SMELL THE HATE
EVERYBODY FELT AGAINST RAMANUS AND HIS  
PLANET.                                 
´THE GREAT ASSEMBLERS OF INFINITY´ SAID 
DYER BUT NO ONE LIKED HIS JOKE.         
´WHAT SHALL WE DO SIR?´ SAID ARCHER.    
´LET'S SET TOP SPEED OUT OF HERE!´ SAID 
PALMER NEARLY YELLING.                  
AS THE SHIP SET OFF AWAY FROM THE

MONDAY 2045/06/06                       
                                        
AS THE MORNING BROKE AT MARSPORT IV,    
CAPTAIN SIMMONS SAW THE A.O.I-BADGES ON 
HIS MEN SHINE IN THE SUNLIGHT AS THEY   
STOOD IN THEIR UNIFORMS AWAITING HIS    
COMMANDS.                               
´MEN´, HE SAID. ´WE HAVE BEEN CONTACTED 
BY THE GOVERNMENT ON ALPHA MORESIA´     
HE MADE A SHORT BREAK.                  
´ACCORDING TO WHAT I HEARD FROM THEM    
YESTERDAY EVENING, THEY HAD SOME        
TROUBLES WITH PIRATES STEALING THEIR    
VALUABLE GOODS WHEN TRANSPORTING THEM   
TO OUR PART OF THIS GALAXY.´            
HE STOPPED AND LOOKED ON THE MEN'S      
FACES. EVERYBODY SEEMED PLEASED WITH    
THE IDEA. BOTH GOING TO ALPHA MORESIA   
AND HUNTING PIRATES MADE THEM HAPPY.    
´EVERYBODY ARE BORED WITH THIS PIRATE-  
NONSENS, BUT SINCE WE HAVE AN AGREEMENT 
WITH U.S.P I THINK WE ARE FORCED TO     
DO THIS JOB. ANY QUESTIONS?´            
´YES SIR´, IT WAS PETE SAARELAHT, A     
YOUNG - BUT YET VERY TALENTED - SOLDIER 
WHOS PARENTS HAD BEEN BRUTALY KILLED BY 
GOB IN THE GREAT WARS.                  
´WHAT SHALL WE DO WHEN AND IF WE FIND   
THE PIRATES, AND HOW WILL WE DO THAT?´  
´YOU WILL FIND THEM BY TRANSPORTING     
IMPORTANT MINERALS IN A CAMOUFLAGED     
SIRVINA-20 ATTACK SHIP. WHEN YOU HAVE   
ENCOUNTERED THE PIRATES, YOUR ORDERS    
ARE TO FORCE THEM TO SURRENDER. IF      
THEY RESIST, JUST A LITTLE, YOU HAVE    
FULL AUTHORITY TO 'DELETE' THEM IF      
YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. AT 10:00 YOUR     
SHIP WILL BE READY FOR TAKE OFF!        
THAT'S ALL MEN, GOOD LUCK!´             
AT 10:00. THE ´LUX ETERNA´, A.O.F'S     
ATTACKSHIP, WAS ROLLING OUT OF THE      
HANGAR AND ARCHER, FALCONER, MILES,     
SAARELAHT AND PALMER WALKED UP THE      
STAIRS TO THE BRIDGE WHERE OLD GUNNER   
DYER ALREADY WAS SITTING, RUNNING A     
TESTSEQUENCE FOR ALL MACHINERY HANDLING 
WITH FIREPOWER ON THE ´LUX ETERNA´.     
SHE WAS A BEAUTY WITH HER 30 METRE LONG 
CARCASS. SHE WAS FAST, EASY TO CONTROL  
AND SHE ALSO CARRIED FIREARMS THAT WERE 
FAR BEYOND HER NEEDS.                   
IN SPACE, SHE WAS WHAT THE OLD NUCLEAR  
SUBMARINES WERE IN THE SEAS OF EARTH.   
STARTING UP THE ENGINES, JOHN ARCHER    
FELT THE POWER OF THIS SHIP - THE SHIP  
OF HIS DREAMS. WHEN TURNING HER ENGINES 
ON, THE SHIP STARTED TO SHIVER.         
HAS THEY LIFTED FROM THE GROUND, MILES  
AND SAARELAHT WERE DISCUSSING THE MAIN  
OBJECTIVES OF THIS MISSION. AFTER A     
WHILE, THEY BOOTH AGREED THAT IT WOULD  
BE A USUAL, YET VERY EXCITING MISSION.  
HAPPILY ENOUGH, ALL POSSIBILITIES OF    
TRAVELLING NOT ONLY IN SPACE, BUT IN    
TIME AND DIMENSIONS WAS LOST WHEN THE   
LABORATORIES ON STARBASE III BURNT TO   
DUST AFTER HEAVY ATTACKS FROM GOB AND   
HIS FOLLOWERS.                          
                                        
WEDNESDAY 2045/06/08                    
                                        
ARRIVING AT THE ALPHA MORESIA, THE      
ASSEMBLERS OF INFINITY FACED A BIG SUN  
SHINING WARM ON THE FRIENDLY PLANET.    
AFTER NICE RIDE TO THE MINISTRY OF      
DEFENSE, THEY WERE INSTRUCTED BY A      
MR.CALLAGAN. THEY GOT ALL INSTRUCTIONS  
THEY NEEDED TO SUCCEED IN THE MISSION.  
OFCOURSE, CHRIS DYER DIDN'T LIKE THE    
IDEA OF TAKING ANOTHER SPACESHIP THAN   
THE ´LUX ETERNA´. HE THOUGHT THAT SHE   
WAS THE ONLY SHIP IN WICH THEY COULD    
POSSIBLE FIGHT THE CRIMINALS IN THESE   
PARTS OF THE UNIVERSE.                  
                                        
THURSDAY 2045/06/09                     
                                        
AFTER A NIGHT OF SLEEP AND DREAMING,    
THE A.O.F GATHERED IN FRONT OF THE      
´MARIAH´. A SIRVINA-20 ATTACK SHIP WICH 
WAS CAMOUFLAGED TO LOOK AS MUCH AS A    
MINERAL TRANSPORTING SHIP AS POSSIBLE.  
´I DON'T LIKE THIS´ DOUG FALCONER SAID. 
´ME NEITHER´ YOUNG PETE SAARELAHT FILLED
IN. THEY WERE ALL SILENT FOR A WHILE BUT
THEN CHRIS DYER SUDDENLY SAID ´LET'S GO 
INSIDE AND GET TO KNOW THIS YOUNG LADY´ 
AND SO THEY DID.                        
SHE WAS AN AVARAGE SHIP IN ALL MEANS.   
THEY WEREN'T TOO SURE IF THEY COULD     
HANDLE HER IN A CLOSE COMBAT, BUT AS    
DYER SAID ´THIS BITCH IS JUST AS EVERY  
WOMEN ARE, AND I SURE CAN HANDLE THEM!´ 
AS HER ENGINES ROARED AND THEY SET OUT  
IN SPACE, GARY MILES GOT A FEELING THAT 
THIS VOYAGE WOULDN'T BE PRETTY AT ALL.  
                                        
SUNDAY 2045/06/12                       
                                        
THREE DAYS HAD PASTED AND THEY HAD NOT  
EVEN GOT A SIGHT OF ANY PIRATES.        
SINCE FRIDAY, DYER HAD SAID ´DAMN GHOST-
STORIES, FUCK THEM ALL´ AND NOBODY GOT  
BETTER BY HIS TALKING. THEN SOMETHING   
HAPPENED. ´CAPTAIN PALMER´ DOUG SAID.   
´I THINK WE HAVE COMPANY AT 5 O'CLOCK,  
DISTANCE 2 LIGHTMINUTES AND CLOSING.´   
´TYPE?´                                 
´I CANNOT SAY FOR SURE, BUT IT NAVIGATES
LIKE A PV-322.´                         
´GOOD. EVERYBODY STAND BY! MILES, TRY   
TO CONTACT THEM!´                       
´YES SIR! UNKNOWN SHIP AT 24.217.5,     
ALPHA CRUISER 1286 HERE, PLEASE IDENTIFY
OR WE'LL OPEN FIRE.´                    
EVERYONE WAS WAITING BUT NOTHING        
HAPPENED.                               
´UNKNOWN SHIP AT 24.217.5,              
ALPHA CRUISER 1286 HERE, PLEASE IDENTIFY
OR WE'LL OPEN FIRE. THIS IS YOUR LAST   
CHANCE!´ MILES TRIED AGAIN.             
´SON OF A BITCH WON'T ANSWER´ DOUG SAID 
TURNING OVER TO HIS COMBATSCREENS.      
SUDDENLY LIGHTS AND ALARMSOUNDS CAME ON 
IN THE SIRVINA-20 AND DYER SCREAMED     
´WE HAVE A MISSILE OF UNKNOWN TYPE      
APPROACHING.´                           
´LOCK RADARS ON TARGET´ PALMER ORDERED. 
´RADARS LOCKED ON TARGET, TARGET ONLY   
THING BEEING TRACKED´ SAARELAHT         
RESPONDED. THE SHIP CAME CLOSER AND     
DYER MADE HIS CANNONS READY TO FIRE.    
´UNIDENTYFIED SHIP AT 4 O'CLOCK,        
DISTANCE 8 LIGHTMINUTES´ DOUG VERIFIED. 
THE SHIP CAME CLOSER AND CLOSER AND     
WHEN THEY WERE ABLE TO SEE HIM THEY     
ONLY SAW THEIR OWN FAITH; TWO MATA-     
MISSILES BEEING LAUNCHED. THE BOTH      
PASSED VERY NEAR THE ´MARIAH´.          
THE PD-322 FLEW PAST THEM BUT TURNED AND
CAME BACK FOR ANOTHER ROUND. THIS TIME  
WITH HEAVY MACHINEGUNS. THEY DIDN'T HIT 
ANY TIME, BUT NEITHER DID THE ´MARIAH´. 
AFTER A FEW MINUTES, THE UNKNOWN SHIP   
SET A COURSE AND DISAPPEARED AT 5       
O'CLOCK FROM THE ´MARIAH´.              
´STRANGE´ DYER SAID.                    
´HAHA! STRANGE? NO! THEY WERE SCARED TO 
DEATH THOSE UGLY BASTARDS´ SAARELAHT    
CHEERED.                                
´I DIDN'T MEAN THAT´ DYER SAID. ´THEY   
FIRED 4 MATA-MISSILES AND THEY HAD A    
REAL STATE-OF-THE-ART MACHINEGUN, BUT   
STILL, THEY DIDN'T PUT A SINGLE BULLET  
IN OUR SHIP.´                           
´SO? THEY HAD A LOUSY MARKSMAN!´        
SAARELAHT SCREAMED IN SURPRISEMENT OF   
DYERS DISAPPROVAL. DYER RAN UP FROM HIS 
CHAIR AND PUSHED SAARELAHT UP AGAINST   
THE WALL. SAARELAHT IMMIDIATELY REALISED
THAT DYER HAD TIRED ON HIS HAPPINESS AND
BECAME SERIOUS.                         
´I THOUGHT YOU WERE A REAL ASSEMBLER!´  
DYER SCREAMED. ´I CAN HIT THE WINDMILL  
IN YOUR GARDEN BACK IN HOLLAND WITHOUT  
EVEN LOOKING AT MY CONTROLS WITH A MATA-
MISSILE! A MARKSMAN AT A PIRATESHIP     
WOULD HAVE GOT US WITH HIS FIRST MISSILE
AND IF WE HAD MANAGED THAT, HIS 3 OTHERS
WOULD HAVE BEEN EVEN BIGGER HITS! CAN'T 
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE PLAYING IN   
THE HIGH DIVISIONS HERE???´             
DYER RELEASED PETE SAARELAHT AND WENT   
BACK TO HIS CONTROLS.                   
´TWO ENCOUNTERS AT 12 O'CLOCK.          
APPROACHING DANGEROUS FAST. DISTANCE    
9 LIGHTSECONDS´ DOUG YELLED.            
´THEY FOOLED US!´ JOHN ARCHER SAID AND  
RUSHED TO HIS CHAIR IN THE BATTLE-      
NAVIGATION ROOM. THEY SET FULL SPEED    
AWAY FROM THE ATTACKING SHIPS, THEN     
TURNED 180 DEGREES AND FIRED TWO        
M-321 MISSILES AND FLEW TOWARDS THE     
SHIPS IN FULL SPEED. AS THE MISSILES    
MISSED THEIR TARGETS, SHIP NUMBER 1     
LAUNCHED ONE OF THEM TOO. AS A GOOD     
MARKSMAN, DYER READ THEIR MOVE AND      
FIRED A SLOW AHG-ROCKET TO LEAD THE     
MISSILE AWAY FROM THE SHIP. INSTEAD     
OF GOING AROUND THE SHIPS, ´MARIAH´     
DIVED UNDER THE TWO AND TOTALLY FOOLED  
THEM. COMING UP BEHIND THEM, DYER FIRED 
ANOTHER M-321'ER AND HIT ONE OF THE     
ATTACKING SHIPS RIGHT IN IT'S SIDE.     
WITH THE OTHER SHIP PERFECTLY IN RANGE  
OF ANOTHER LAUNCH, ARCHER MADE A MISTAKE
AND ´MARIAH´ GOT UNCONTROLLABLE FOR A   
FEW SECONDS, AND THAT MADE HER AN EASY  
TARGET. THE OTHER SHIP MUST HAVE GOT HIT
BY SOME DEBRIS FROM THE EXPLOTION AND   
DIDN'T FIRE A MISSILE. INSTEAD, THEY    
USED MACHINEGUNS AND THEY HIT THE FRONT 
OF ´MARIAH´.                            
JOHN ARCHER GAVE HER FULL SPEED AND     
ACCELERATED AS FAST AS THE LADY COULD   
DO, AND THE ENEMY SHIP WENT AFTER THEM. 
USING EVERY POSSIBLE HORSEPOWER, ARCHER 
REVERSED THE ENGINES INTO A BREAK AND   
CAME BEHIND THE SECOND ENCOUNTER. DYER  
DIDN'T MISS AND SANK HER WITH A ´GOOD   
OL' TERRINGER´ AS HE CALLED THE T-05    
MISSILE.                                
´GIVE ME DAMAGEREPORT!´ PALMER ORDERED  
AND AFTER A FULL DAMAGESCAN, THEY       
FOUND OUT THAT THE MACHINEGUN DAMAGE    
AND ARCHERS DIVERSION HAD GONE FAR      
BEYOND WHAT THE OLD ´MARIAH´ COULD      
HANDLE. THEY WERE NOW FLOATING AROUND   
IN SPACE WITH NO CONTROL OF THE SHIP.   
                                        
TUESDAY 2045/06/14                      
                                        
AFTER TWO DAYS OF NO CONTROL, THE       
´MARIAH´ WAS AN UNSAFE PLACE TO BE.     
WITH NO POWER LEFT, THEY COULDN'T       
USE THE ENGINE OR THE FIREPOWER.        
EVERYONE WAS ASLEEP WHEN MILES          
SUDDENLY WOKE UP TO THE SOUND OF THE    
COLLISION ALARM. ´HOLY SHIIIIT!!!´ HE   
SCREAMED AND ALL THE OTHER WOKE UP.     
´GUYS! WE ARE FALLING DOWN TOWARDS THE  
ATHAREIS!´ HE SAID WITH PANIC IN HIS    
VOICE. EVERYBODY STRUGGLED WITH THE     
CONTROLS BUT TO NO USE. ´MARIAH´ WAS
