Altairan Homeworld
“The fighters are nearing the planet.”

“Intercept them. We open fire as soon as they are in range. Open comms to the Callisto.”

“Kaijon, these Korx fighters are nothing but mice.”

“Even mice can carry rabies. Don’t take them lightly.”

“Yes, pride leader. Following your lead.”

“Good. Let’s catch some mice.”

The fighters weren’t caught by surprise, opening fire as soon as they were within range, the rail guns spitting out pieces of metal. The Felinus frigates returned the favor, missiles arcing towards the Korx. The furball was on. The fighters danced among the frigates, the rail guns splatting against the frigates armor, as missiles exploded among them.


“The armor is working, sir. The shots are doing no damage.”

A missile connected with a fighter, tearing it shreds. The Korx didn’t give up though, even though it was obvious they weren’t doing very much damage to the frigates. They just kept coming. Finally, they weren’t.

“All fighters destroyed. Very minor damage to the Callisto. More fighters are inbound.”

“Not even mice,” Kaijon sniffed. “Let’s finish these off and go looking for bigger game.”

Felinus homeworld
“The Calibans are reporting stunning success. Two squadrons of Korx fighters destroyed while suffering only a blown plasma conduit, and ten radiation burn casualties.”

Griffen looked at the galactic map, and decided to end this war as quick as possible. “Order the Caliban and Callisto home, but they are to engage any Korx they come across, especially the colony on Winstone. Order the rest of the Caliban to attack. We’re going to hit the Korx homeworld.”

Korx homeworld, two months later
“That was too easy Kaijon.”

“Yes, milord, but we still have three more planets to invade.”

“No, no we don’t. They surrendered those planets to the Krynn, instead of letting them fall to us.”

“Then we have peace again.”

“For what it’s worth yes. Go rest up your crew. Who knows what foes lie out there, waiting for us to sink our teeth into?”
