The Long Wait - The Ceti Aliens
« on: September 05, 2021, 10:50:59 AM »
4043 - 4045

The Ceti Aliens, or Mobile Imperium are greedy little*^#. They keep expanding and taking the Aquarian territory. But Aquarian a few warships short of a war. But we building for one, the Aquarians are tired of being bossed around. What is concerning is that we found two systems and both races are Aliens no humans. What has happened to the human empire.


Calendar Entries of Note

4043, 2 March                 Dr Alonzo Dubbs, the new breed of scientist for Power and Propulsions, had a social interest, that happened across the Director of Research, and Academy Commandant Len Deacon, and attractive man by all accounts and from the position he was in a bit of a risk taker, lets just say they were tied up in a compromise fashion. Alonzo never to look a gift horse in the mouth took over when Bennie Matz finished his work on the Stellarator Fusion Reactor. His work on the Magneto-plasma Drive should advance.

4043, 8 June                  Dr Guillermo Kothakota cheerfully completed his work on Ordnance Production. He had completed 18 projects in the kinetic division. A new range of missiles will come soon with the new engines.so Ordnance production will need to be stepped up.

4043, 23 June                Dr Kathy Calvin was young Enthusiastic and loved for thing to go BOOM. She was the best Scientist in the kinetics division. Her work on the Fission Warhead completed she started work on a Fusion boosted Fission Warhead.  No sue have new missile that do not give a bigger bang for buck.

4043, 2 October            The Mobile Imperium were now holding a number of ships in position in the Aquarian system on the Bootis Jump Point. We will send a a Frigate over to investigate what these ships are doing.

4043, 9 December         The FF Toulouse halted at the jump point and sent actives on. The five ships were highlighted, they have been tagged on the system as the Lamon001, Lancaster 001, Gladius 003, Gypsum 001 and DIP Daybreak. The largest was move concerning at 17 697 tons with a military grade engine. The Lamon was 66 000 tons however it was a commercial engine. Joint Chiefs was getting the feeling they were stabilising the wormholes. Like we seen them do before. This means they could express it with power ships. Interesting the ambassador Vizier Digleyaegha contacted the FF Toulouse to try and smooth over any objections we had, hard to say no when your got military ships backing you up.

4043, 30 December          Well if they want to play in our pond we will play in theirs, we have send the Chicago over and will survey looking for additional jump points out of there system.

4044, 1 March                Our Intelligence has gone to work. We have 11 Class and seen 29 Vessels, not as scary as I once thought. Although we have got details on 3 DDG Classes. Blood on Scales, The Eye of Jupiter and Epiphanies. Real nice names. What is concerning is their speed all of them been observed at 5,500km/s. The good news is our diplomatic rating are improving maybe they could be an ally after all.

4044 5 March                 Hold that though they have told Chicago they need to move on else they will be fired upon. Well Close borders it is then. Also as suspected they made a Gate system between the two worlds, with the end point in Aquarian Prime

4044, 17 March              SC Betsycoed has discovered another jump point in the Ceti system, it already has been stabilised. Even though they asked JS Chicago to leave we going to send them back and see if they allow transitory traffic.

4044, 5 May                 JS Chicago entered into a new system, into a mass of small freighters. This came up on the computer as 1 Bootis A, the computer must have a glitch all this Bootis systems. Captain Jarvis Puebla has renamed this the Puebla system as per administrative directives. The A1-V Star is 3 times the size and mass of Sol, which compared to what we seen elsewhere is tiny. The bright white star illuminates 3 planets Puebla II looks more then liveable if only it had more oxygen. You think it would with it Forested Mountains

4044, July 20               JS Chicago now been asked to leave the Puebla system. They have obviously laid claim to it.

4045, January              The Ranger Force got an overhaul on equipment and formation. More penetration power and a  little more armour upgrade but nowhere near the required for Cancun IV. But w should have force on hand to deal with things. Also the Mobile Imperium even booted out out Diplomatic vessel from Ceti. We have a IS vessel hanging near Ceti III, but it sensor are not power enough to grabe anything.

4045, 1 February          They are now claim Bootis system, this is not right. we had this system first unless they have colonised. I will move the JS Chicago around and see if they have a Colony anywhere.

4045, 6 Feburary          They have rejected our claim on Bootis, this will lead to a war perhaps. We are not ready. perhaps we give them Bootis for now.

4045, 26 February         Detected another Jump Point in the Ceti System, this one also has been stabilized, Cmdr Basil Pittsley consisted jumping in however there may not be Stabilisation on the other side leaving them trapped. He care about his crew and his Faith in Others to do the job later made him head for home.

4045, 3 March               Dr Milford Delph worked with Weedman Electronics to bring out a new range of Thermal Sensor sizes 250ton, 500tons, 10000 tons and 2000 tons. The ranges have improved since  the last batch.

4045, 12 May                Finally we have a scientist working in the Defensive Division it almost be 20 years since we had any adequate breakthroughs. Dr Cathy Vandermolen is working in this field.

4045, 18 August             Sc Maestaeg has found a jump point in the Sigma system.

4045, 12 September      Dr Miford Deph took another contract with Cowan Electronics and Amacher & Lannigan to develop new Missile Fire Control and Active Search Sensors. This Private contract work does not paid to bad.

4045, 29 December        Creation of the 3rd Ranger Regiment started.

4046 - 4047


Calendar Entries of Note

4046, 27 March            Dr Connie Solano completed a Triple Laser Turret, this will be put on our new Destroyer Escorts. These are to deal with any missile strikes.

4046, 15 June              FF Paris swapped with FF Strasbourg for picket duty at the gate. The Fleet were rotating ships to keep a presence.

4046, 25 June             Dr Alonzo Dubbs completed a presentation on the new Magneto-plasma Drive, the Head of Research requested immediate engine designs. On the same day Dr Bennie Matz finished an array of Powerplants for the new Escort Destroyer. Bidding his time he wanted revenge on Dubbs for pushing him back as some second place lacky.

4046, 6 August           The IS Imushbim had crept in on Ceti II and now is 150mkm awat, it will creep in a little close at 80m, this should give us thermals on ships coming and going from the the Planet. Commander Freddy Barthelemy was very happy with his tiny crew. It already been 66 months and his ship was starting to stink to high heaven.

4046, 26 August         Four more Frigates rolled off the production line, an upgrade to the b series of Amiens would be in order once the engines come off the line.

4046, 12 September    The IS Imushbim is holding 68mkm away from Ceti II close enough to Identify the massive 41,000 Thermal population. So far it seems they have not been spotted. 5 minutes later Crap he been spotted as 11 DDGs heading straight for the ship. The IS Imusbim casually turned to the gate as if they had done nothing wrong. It seems they got a little close perhaps 100mKm would of been a better holding position. What is worrying is the amount of DDG now seen in the Mobile Imperium's arsenal.

4046, 27 October       The Mountain Destroyer Escort Class had finished on the design board and pushed off to the Shipyards. This should counter some of the missile imbalance from the Mobile Imperium.

4047, 10 March            JS San Francisco jumped into a new system. Named 4 Cancum by the computer. Cmdr Edmond Noviello sighed and renamed the system after his last name. The F3-IV Star 3 times the size of Sol. The white star had 8 planets 84 moons and 209 asteroids. Not really habitable however could be some great mining opportunities here. With that it released the two survey craft to review the system bodies.

4047, 40 November     We running low on Uridium, we need to find a new source before it runs out. Sigma II is a prime candidate but it is 2 jumps away.

4048 - 4057

The Aquarian just did not get the ramp up of require mineral in time. Perhaps there is something said about stabilisation of Jump Points, but the Fleet wants a little bit of protection for now.

Calendar Entries of Note

4048, 1 January      Reviewing Planets it has been decided that Sigma II give us the best option to mine for minerals. It has resources across the board and they are minable plus ground survey is possible. RA and Candance has been detached from the Battle Fleet, to take out some Surveyors and a small group of defensive forces.


4048, 14 February   Commander Dorris Bertholf, may not be spending valentines day with her Boo, however she did the next best thing aboard the SC Betwsyoced. Discovered a new jump point out of Sigma Phoenicis.

4048, 29 May           While going through some old sensor logs it was discovered there was an old Earth Outpost on Noviello I, Joint Chiefs were putting together a new unit for checking this old installation. Perhaps some old tech can be rediscovered and help us in the future fights we will encounter. The new unit is call OEA Team, Old Earth Archaeologists.

4048, 13 June          The mineral Corundium has run out on Aquaria, leaving the new destroyer Escorts unable to be completed. There is 2643 coming from Aquarii III, but we need a better source.

4048, 5 August        The additional upgrades to the Amein Frigate class with the first 4 ships refitted. Upgrade to the Engine and Active and Passive Sensor arrays. Creating a slightly lighter and faster Frigate.

4048, 23 December          7th Bn, 3rd Ranger Regiment landed on Sigma II, a  number of automated mines were already hard at work digging minerals. Automated was not quite true there always a presence of a small contingent of engineers and miners, that sheltered in this hostile world. The Atmospshere was not breathable, it was on average -39 degrees  Damn Cold. Let hope there mission in protecting the Survey Company did not last forever. Lt Colonel Dante was promoted from the Regular Infantry to now managing a Battalion of Rangers. That how depleted the officer corp was, and she was not great at her job, even she knew this easily confused and flustered any time something went wrong.

4049, 4 April                    Dr Cathy Vandermolen, completed research into Ceramic Composite Armour. This is a huge upgrade how since we just upgrade our ships, troops it has been shelved until later upgrades. A real shame it was here sooner but with mineral shortage at the moment its not become a priority. However the New River Destroyer Class have not been put in the yard so it will be the first to achieve this also the new Dropship classes will receive the new armour

4049, 6 July                    The lack of Uridum has paused all ship building tasks and even mainataince stocks have stopped, we do have 1/2 million supplies not sure hwo long that will hold out.

4049, 15 August             The Battle Fleet landed 3rd Ranger Regiment mins 7th Battalion and the 1st OEA Company to investigate the outpost on Noviello I, this is a busy system so many asteroids and planets. Brigadier Hollis Wilkins looked out with his Gloomy disposition. He was promoted to Colonel on January 3, 4040 from 5th Ranger Bn. He missed the drop on Cancun IV, and he felt bad like survivors guilt. He was indecisive what to do with the Battle Fleet, however he decided to keep them for a month in orbit above just in case they needed to extract.

4049, 16 October             Dr Karol Resch finished working on Thermal Sensor Sensitivity 14, before she could organise labs for commercial reasons Dr Mildord Delph took the labs to work on Active Grav Sensor he has some new idea that could boost the signal.

4050 - 4053                   Was just shipping automated mines, and trying to get back to be able to ship build again. Govenor Adaberto Revis was heavily critized for the lack for foresight. Unable to build anything with the lack or Uridum, Corundium and Sorium, This might go on even longer.

4054, 29 January             Dr Connie Solano, developed the Far UV laser. This then added some value to point defence however our PD ships were still in dock waiting for more Urium.

4054, 30 July                  Finally the first Destroyer Escort rolls off the line the DE Carpathian, these will protect the frigates from inbound missile attacks. It a ity there system are now out of date considering we had upgraded the mahority of the sensors and Fire Controls.

4054, 28 October             The rest of the destroyer Escorts completed, we have not seem much of the Mobile Imperium, they seemed to have kept away from our system with the Bootis System being a nice buffer.

4055, 14 August              Completion of the New Laser Turrets. Our Technology is outstripping our construction ability.

4056, 12 April                 Dr Karol Resch completed work on the Improved Geo Sensors. More Jump Freighters have been completed to send automated mines out to various planets.

4056, 5 August               Dr Milford Deph retired at the age of 63. The man did not even wait around to recieve any great awards although he was deserving. His assistant Dr Karen Livergood has taken over.

4056, 19 September        It was decided to go see the Mobile imperium, as we not seen them in some time. We are sending 3 Destroyer Escorts and 4 Frigates to investigate.

4057, 6 February            New System Discovered, the third Jump off the Sigma system. The System is tiny, it has 2 Planets and four moons. However one of the planet is Habitable. Average Temperature of -2 , Breathable Atmosphere, gravity of .74 of Earths. Perhaps this place is uninhabited and we can settle a Colony here. The system once again is called Cacun. WHY OH WHY. It now being renamed to the Captain Last name which is Kwiecien

4057, 12 March              The Kwiecien planet is occupied. Just my luck. We will need to sen our diplomatic vessel out here.

4057, 22 April                Captain Porfiro Sheley, decided to check out the unexplored Jump Gate, that from the Ceti system. Once he entered the new system he was astounded. The system had 11 planet 42 moons and what was crazy 676 asteroids. The Captain decided he done his quick recon and was headed back to Ceti system complete a swing by the Mobile Imperium home world and head back the Aquarian Prime. Maybe the Captain was asking for trouble.

4057, 29 May               An Update on the number of ships in the MI Fleet, 23 Destroyers, 5 Cruisers, 4 Light Escort Cruisers and a mass of other ships commercial and civilian. The Planet is defended with a number of Bam and Missile Defensive Bases. There is no one way can go again the Mobile Imperium now or ever.

4057, 4 December       The 1st Fleet has returned, the DIP Alantia is on the way to Kwiecien. Nothing is happening at the Outpost, perhaps it requires more OEA Teams. Any though of Payback with the Mobile Imperium is a pipe dream.  Atleast they have not tried to invade out systems.

4058 - 4062

Our first win as Aquarians, it looks like the new governor is a pusher. Things like minerals and ships are stabilising across the board. We have so much logistic ships that we are now heading to a multi system nation.

Calendar Entries of Note

4058, 26 March              Finish Survey of Aquarii V-II, this is the further we can go in a our present system, there is still up to Aquarii XIIII and asteroid further out however the fuel required is just to big.

4058, 19 May                 DIP Alantia, moved to within 22m km of Kwiecien, with the hopes of making contact. Commodore Sammie Patillo, is trying not to make the mistake of past diplomatic ships. However the Diplomatic staff find Patillo, Weak and Unreliable and he look ready to run at any given opportunity.

4058, 13 September       The Navy looked at explaining it command structure as, more ships come online. The two new command areas were Survey Command and Ranger Command. There was a slight shuffle of Admirals. Admiral Calvin Gehlert became Head of the Fleet, vice Admiral Diego Shields, became head of Survey Command, and Vice Admiral Lonnie Larranaga Head of Ranger Command. But Truly on the head of the transport ships Ranger retained overall command. Ranger liked Larranga as it seemed to have Ranger sort of in the name and nicknamed her Admiral Lasagne, she might been Inflexible and Dogmatic but she was adventurous and that took guts.

4058, 23 September        There was new jump point detected in the Kwiecien System,
4058, 20 October             2nd Survey Company Completed it ground survey of Sigma P III,  making it a very desirable mining sector for Titanium 110m at 0.5 access. However the vast amount of other minerals were just too hard to retrieve at a .1 . Sigma P I had 21m tons of Corbonmite at 0.7 access.

4058, 24 December         Dr Kathy Calvin upgraded the CIWS-120 to the new CIWS-200. Cathy has managed 22 projects. The Joint Chiefs are proud of her work.

4059, 15 May                  Sc Llany under the new commander of CDR Hiram Haddix discovers the first jump point in the Noviello System

4059, 20 May                The Destroyed Outpost on Noviello I have been fully surveyed. The fresh OEA troops that were about to land on the planet was not needed. Obviously Major Gregoria Garretson got his arse into gear. The Alien race was definitely from the old Earth Empire. The 7 abandoned installation were available however the heavy equipment of a construction unti was required.

4059, 1 June                 Dr Rene Mera increased the Shipbuilding rate to 750BP. This was greatly appreciated. This only her 2nd project and this high educated was looked on with promise. Little did the Join Chief know she was selling any secrets on the side to commercial interests for a profit. untrustworthy. It be interesting how long she get away, her new home over looking the coast was apparently a donation by a 'patron' for tax reasons.

4059, 17 June               A second jump point was discovered in the Noviello system. SC Penmarc under Cdr Joaquin Pitt had the honours.

4060, 26 March             The JS Chicago jumped into a new system from the Noviello system, as been standard the computer giving us names which just are the same as one we already have with a different number. So the system is now know as the Stops system after Captain Hank Stops. This does not sounds like a great name however here it is. The 12 planet system off a K1-III star, a massive 25 times the size of the Sol and 3 times its mass, know as a orange dwarf. However the Stops system was very uninhabitable.

4060, 14 August           The mining bases are starting now to rebalance the mineral shortage and dump a load on Aquaria Prime for ship building. The Annapollis ships are which we now have 42 of are doing the bulk of the back breaking work.

4060, 18 September       For some reason poor Captain Hank Stops had developed a medical condition, from the last mission. The Survey Command wishes him well and hiope the shipboard doctor is up to the task of looking after the Captain.

4060, 17 October           Dr Kathy Calvin in development of the two stage Thermonuclear warhead has been give the Order of Aquaria for her services in research.

4060, 16 November       Dr Karon Livengood rivalry with Dr Karol Resch reach new levels, for one they both made fun that there first names were incorrect, however after Livegood enhance planetary sensors to 700, Resch stole her labs for the new thermal sensitivity enhancement

4060, 24 November       Dr Bella Whang increased Mining Production Efficiency to 16 tons however that was not good enough and she been make to continue until it is 20 tons.

4060, 4 December         Dr Garland Losee completed research on Laminate Composite Armour.  This might be the next level of ranger armour we need, however the Aquarian government has got no response from the Kwiecien Aliens, also they seem to be too passive as we accidently parked out Intelligence ship over their planet and di not attack. The Aquarian feel they need to land force and protect these creatures before the Mobile Imperium invades. Also they are aquatic creature, so they don't even use the surface. The join Chief believe this will be a easier task for the 4th Ranger Regiment.

4061, 1 January           Governor Adalberto Revis fulfilled his 20 year instalment, welcoming Leona Crumwell, she was a cold manned woman, who was very much result-orientated and stubborn. In the past she followed order without question making her morals dubious at best. Her first take was to send 4th Ranger Regiment out to Kwiecien system.

4061, 17 February       A factory was restored at the Old Earth Outpost.

4061, 14 March            Governor Crunwell, already push hard with plans for a Colony ship using existing engines and jump drives to colonise the Kwiecien planet. Her thought was the worst case senario we will use it on another planet to colonise this was her goal to colonise two or three systems.

 4062, 30 April              4th Ranger Regiment made an Orbital Drop onto Kwiecien II, 11th Ranger Battalion was pushed forward while 10th and 12th Bns held defensive positions. As contact with the Aquatic species was made they surrendered agreed to our protection straight away. However there is much civil unrest. It seems  we require a full division to supress the population. A request for a new planetary guard has been put in place. New Large Troopships will need to be created to move the Guard forces across as well. The Governor has quickly set to work.

4062 - 4067

The Aquarians are suffering from Low fuel shortages and the fact even thing take so long to move minerals from 3-4 jumps away is hard to progress. They eventually colonised the Kwiecien II planet and now want to send a range of equipment to that system. Now with corporations popping up commercial shipping should be easier and might be able to scrap a portion of the cargo fleet.


Calendar Entries of Note

4062, 26 May                The Ruins on Noviello one has been full exploited, which considered of 2 Automated Mines, 1 Construction Factory, 4200 Uridium, 6.4 Million fuel, 6000 Maintenance Supplies.

4062, 5 June                 Five Mexican Colony Ships build this will be used to ship personal to Kwiecien II, the first colony ships with 350,000 people left.

4063, 9 January             Captain Marcel Carline, commander of the Shipyards was killed while inspecting the rushed work to complete the 50K Athens Class Troop Transport. This class is purely for the movement of Cargo for troops. Captain Carline leave behind a wife and 2 kids. Continued unrest on Kwiecien II , with low level insurgency again the 4th Ranger Regiment.

4063, 12 March             The JS Washington jumped into a new system through Npviello, the time honoured tradition remains The new system is called the Dorschner system after Commander Cameron Dorschner. The tiny M6-V solar, has only 2 planets and a small number of asteriods.

4063, 23 September       Trying to get the Planetary Guard Division created has been a tough slog, Dr  Peter Willis done his bit push ground force construction up to 500  ton per whatever. No one was really interested.

4064, 23 March              The JS San Francisco entered into the a new system from Kwiecien, the system is now called Troise after the captain. The system has 10 planets, 50 moons around a Huge M1-III star, however is has a small mass. None important sseem to be in the system

4064, 7 December          The first Civilian construction of the Asay Carrier Corporation build a C6 class Colony Ship.

4065, 8 April                  Intelligence update of Kwiecien II has revealed a population of 921m however 0 installations put this group of sentient shrimp in the pre warp era. lucky we have come along and liberated them.

4065, 10 September       Over and over put ships are needing repairs and it taking them atleast 12 months to get to the outer sectors. I think we need to invest into Gates, else we will not be able to produce faster ships.

4066, 8 July                  Captain Hank Stop retired at the age of 43, a pretty poor effort, and the fact he has a system named after.  him. Just disappointing.

4067, 24 October         The Cormyr race on Kwiecien has now been conquered at the 1st Planetary Division patrolled the streets. We had also Autopsy one of the insurgents corpses.

Some the public has queried why we running out of fuel so quickly why do we need such huge fuel tanks. The Aquarian are situated in a massive system. To the Aquarian Prime to the centre of the system is 15 Billion kms. A Jump to Visor is 17.9 BKm and a jump to the CEti 10bKm, lucky for us a jump to our main expansion point is only 3 Bkm away to Cancun. To travel to the Mobile Imperium Capital is a only a small 21 billion journey. 42 bkm for a return trip. To get to the new created colony in Kwiecien II, is only a 40bKm journey. and that is 4 jumps away, 80mkm return.

However if we look at our poor warships ships Mountain class and Amiens class only have a range of 60 bkm. Not even enough for a return journey. This is why it travels with the Jump Ships which carries additional fuel.

4068-4070

Preparation for War. It was now time to take on the Mobile Imperium. Minerals now in check, Fuel in check. They been caught spying on us, we cannot put it past them they will try and attack before we do. If we get a first strike in, we might be able to balance out the war.

Calendar Entries of Note

4068, 16 February,               The Athen Class Troop Transport have been handed over to the Ranger Command, and classified as Athen Fleets. Vce Admiral Lonnie Larranaga, pulled off a nice coup from Battle Command.

4068, 4 June                        Dr Karol Resch finished work on the Active Grav Sensor 36. After 16 Completed project each a worthy contribution to society the Cheerful and humble 52 year old received the the Companion Order of Aquaria, the second medal ever given. Before she embacked on her next top the EM Sensitivity 18.

4068, 23 July                       The first Jump Point ever stabilised by the Anchorage 001, Lt Cmdr Lowell Stille, complimented his crew before moving to the Simga P system, hopefully Anchorage 002 will be completed there task soon to pass through. Meanwhile of Aquarian Prime a govenor needed to over seen both the new colony and the capture colony on Kwiecien. Gov Ted Blough, a very loyal subject would oversee the captured population and Gov Stanley Womac would see the new colonist on the planet.

4068, 7 August                    With the Civilian space sector expanding, contracts were give to civilian based shipping lines rather then government carriers. This would provide resources for a more specified targeting of opportunities.

4069, 11 May                      A New Academy commandant need to be appointed since the last scientist retired due to bad health. Since them aimed at Science we have so many scientist without jobs. It was decided to appoint a Colonel Shaun Busbee to the role, recently back from his Ranger Roles in the occupation force, seen as fast climber and Political Reliable candidate. promoted to Brigadier he was pushed into the role before objections.

4069, 25 June                    Scientist Garland Losee, had received the order of Aquaria, after developing Compressed Carbon Armour.  The 41 year old has only completed 4 projects, but managed to rack up enough creditability to receive the award. Ground Forces were impressed and want to roll this into the new Mk III Ranger models. However they are waiting for some new Energy upgrades before they put it into effect.

4069, 6 September             Kwiecien II have moved to the acceptance of being occupied, however we on Aquaria prefer the thought we are uplifting them. Creating a better future.

4070, 20 February              Kwiecien II have moved into being subjugated.

4070, 24 November            A New missile was commissioned for the new Missile Destroyer. They wanted a Size 3 AS Missile able to hit a 5KK/s Target at 75mKm at at least 96% accuracy. Ankrum Armament came back with this and a new upgrade to the AA Missile. That fulfilled the 2m range 93% accuracy against 20KK/s Target

4070, 18 April                    Dr Kathy Clavin had completed the two missile specifications, and made them work they were quickly put into production to replace existing missiles.

4071, 22 September            The building of 3 New classes of vessels the DDG River Class, the Search and Rescue Ship the Searess Class and another class that is under wraps it been put under secret development.

4072, 28 February            Dr Jules Eatmon, developed the Internal Confinement Fusion Drive, he now being subbed out to the commercial sector to put this theory into practice. The Joint Chiefs were not happy with jules as they had already started production of the 3 military designs.

4072, 28 May                   Maintenance Facilities started to be constructed on Kawak, the Human colony on Kweicien II . This will allow ships to hold position here, next we need some fuel refineries, and other requirements. This planet is designed to be a forward staging point for the next range of operations.

4073, 2 April                    Instead of revamping the Amein Frigates that been upgrade so many times. the decision was a New Frigate class. The Pacifia class build similar in design to the Amein class however more reliance on shoot and scoot tactics.

4073, 4 June                  5 River Class DDG complete, the Aquaria knew what they must do, with a ship that can compete with the Mobile Imperium is was now time to pay back. This would give them a bloody nose, also if they came through the gateway to Aquaria we had our surprise waiting for them as well.

4074, 4 December          Governor  Leona Crumwell, waved off 1st Fleet, knowing she was about to start a war. But It is better to strike first then wait for the Mobile Imperium to strike the Aquaria people. Also from a political point of view she wanted to be know as the Governor that successgful took back the Bootis system which was discovered by the Aquarian first before they were booted out.

She had faith in her ships and crew, 5 DDG 5 DDE and 8 Frigates left, plus the special surprise to shock and awe the Mobile Imperium.
