Chapter Four: Code

The rebel command structure was a tight cabal.

In their fleet, all the senior commanders were members of the Observer Corps, all except one, the High Priest, who gave his blessing to the whole affair. This did not mean that they trusted one another, they did not, but they knew each other and they shared the same motive.

The rebel Observers planned to use every other commander in their armada as cannon fodder in their approach to the HomeWorld.

They expected the automated defenses of the Central Planet to be significant and they made a pact to protect each other.

It pleased them to no end to have the High Priest with them. The hero of the people and among the most beloved persons ever known to the Continuum and the Collective. He was a man who had started out his life as a rebel, and was now returning to it in the end.

They would make him the new Emperor, and bring him into the Collective.  

These Observers betrayed the people of the Empire, the Continuum, and the Collective out of opportunism. They wanted to live, they wanted to live forever without the rules imposed on them by the Continuum.

To a person, they wanted to expand the Empire to other galaxies, to govern real worlds as they had governed their private worlds as members of the Collective. 

They had no code, no honor, no nothing

They were striving for their own glory, for personal autonomy.

The High Priest knew that their strategic approach would put the bulk of the armada at risk, he could not understand the reason, but he allowed it to happen anyway.

The Continuum was paralyzed.

Chapter Five: Deception

Jim absolutely opposed the Continuum and its Empire.

He despised it, the oppressive, artificial, all-consuming cowardice of it.

He intended to wipe the entire thing away.

To replace it with something that would reignite the passion of the Ancient People for freedom and exploration.

He allowed the fleet in, just so it could be eliminated.

Chapter Six: Decipher

Jim engaged the programs that were established to monitor the strength and health of the HomeWorld.

Every reading confirmed a collapse of the Continuum.

The Observers in command of the rebel fleet were able to scan this as well.

It emboldened them, but the fleet could not scan the weapons systems that were targeting it.
