Give it all or nothing by thefirstfleet Give it all or nothing by thefirstfleet
"The Bastion's cut communication, Kaept'n!", Herimann said, plucking the Feinberg receiver from his ear. Silence fell upon the bridge of the Polaris, everybody present knew what this meant: the time for diplomacy was over. The Bastion has declared war upon the Federation.
"Oh, basszameg!", Metlesits moaned, punching the red alert toggle on the command chair. The whoops of the alert klaxon echoed throughout the ship, "Vasya, anyone friendly in the vicinity?"
"No Federation ships in the sector, Skip", Nussbaum said, shaking his head.
"I guess we have to fight this thing alone", the Captain sighed, "Mr. Heimann, open a new channel to them. Tell them that if they want to evade hostile action, they are to resume communication."
Before the comm officer could do anything, rapid-fire explosions rocked the Polaris.
"Plasma pulses!", Nussbaum yelled, "Shields are holding!"
"They fired the first shot", Metlesits nodded, "The poor bastards..."
On most ships, the officers would have thought their captain has went mad. On most ships, the mere thought of fighting a city block sized ship made of cast rodinium was suicidal. But the Starship Polaris wasn't one of those ships. Metlesits didn't even needed to give any command: Nussbaum was already arming the phasers and Jiménez was plotting an attack vector.
"One tiny ship standing between Earth and a planet killer", Metlesits hummed to himself as his ship executed an acceleration-attack maneuver that made the hull creak, "Not the worst odds..."

I never realized it! The Original Series from the 60's only fired two at one time! I thought the main energizer couldn't handle the load!

That’s just two! :D When Metlesits gets really fired up, that’s when it’s 4 or 5!
