New Campaign... Full circle
I've decided to make a new campaign called Full Circle (website in siggy). I started it a few weeks ago, and it should be done in anywhere between a couple months to a year. It will have new weapons, graphics, effects, hud, and some 'borrowed' ships from Inferno. It will have at least 30 missions, up to maybe 40 (27 currently planned out).

Heres a WIP Intro:


   Twenty years have passed since the Capella incident with the Shivans, and since the
Apocalypse there has yet to be a single Shivan sighting within any charted system. We (The
Terrans and the Vasudans of the GTVA) remain optimistic that the Shivans have been banished
from our worlds forever, and we are free to turn our priorities to more constructive tasks.

   During one of our recovery processes to the Sol system, a badly damaged Terran
cruiser uncovered the missing pieces of the beast we called the Lucifer. We moved a fleet into
the torn subspace disturbance and after five years of research, we developed technology that
the Lucifer had been hiding. We developed an advanced subspace drive, to conquer unstable
jump nodes. We developed a way home.

   Peace however was not something we were able to construct. While in the process of
distributing the advanced subspace drive to various systems and battlegroups, a small Terran
fleet in Ross 128 had been working on a new anti-matter warhead. Unfortunately their project
failed, however, they had developed a new generation of weapons as a byproduct of their
experiments. This new subspace weapon, which was only effective against Terrans was in the
eyes of the GTVA government, a threat to the Terran race. Our government banned the project,
and denied the fleet access to the advanced subspace drive.

   Only two months after our ban, an uprising sparked in Ross 128. With fear in the minds
of our government, the GTVA attempted to negotiate with the battlegroup, in order to prevent
another Rebellion. The Ross 128 fleet had sufficient fleet strength to mount a considerable
offensive. Unfortunately the negations failed as the new Rebel group ignored Terran hails. The
new group calling themselves the Absolute Terran Dominion (ATD) blockaded the jump node out of
Ross 128 into Gamma Draconis, and shed blood to whatever ship passed through the node. The
GTVA declared a state of open war.

   Six more months passed after the Rebellion and neither side made an aggressive move. It was only until another month later that the ATD Flagship finally appeared, coming from the Ross 128 node. It was a massive super-carrier, with more firepower then any terran destroyer. The GTVA was not defenseless however, and moved the recently developed Vasudan Super-Destroyer to combat the carrier. The carrier withdrew deeper into the system, and disapeered off long range sensors. The endless line of fighters and cruisers thrown against the GTVA in Gamma Draconis never ceased however.

   During a scouting mission in the Capella nebula two weeks after the carrier fled, she was rediscovered near the heart of what once was a massive star giving life to the surrounding Capella planets. The Vasudan Super-Destroyer was once again called in, and a massive battle took place. However, with both sides deadlocked and low on fighters, the battle came to a sudden end. Directly behind the carrier a massive subspace node opened. The energy given off by the node wracked shockwaves throughout the entire Capella nebula, and just then an enormous craft, much larger then any recorded Juggernaut, began to emerge. It seemed to defy the laws of physics our dimension had in place. The craft moved with demonic speeds out of her swirling subspace node, and with a bright flash, the rebel carrier was instantly incinerated. Whatever this craft was, it wasn't Terran, and it wasn't Vasudan. We hastily removed our forces from the system.

Looks pretty good.:) Why did the GTVA ban production of the new technology though?

wow! This is actually interesting! And it doesn't even have that many grammar errors! And if it doesn't have grammar errors, then it's got to be good!

Not that I am the one to speak about the grammar, but still.

Looking forward to it!
