Chapter Seven: Engagement

It was a glorious time. Jim felt it, and he struggled to suppress the feelings that were peaking at levels he had no memory of ever experiencing before.

Jim reveled in his victory; his long sought after victory over the Continuum, his victory over the Collective, and his impending victory over the approaching Imperial fleet.

He wanted nothing more than to prolong this moment, to stretch it out forever like the elongation of time at the event horizon of a singularity.

This moment was a singularity, for him.

As he watched the rebel fleet approach he wanted nothing more than to destroy it, to crush it, to send the survivors back with the knowledge that it was he who had defeated them, but he had competing desires, and some of them, the vainglorious ones, he had to set them aside for the moment and concentrate on the task at hand.

He had to allow a remnant in, He had to allow them to land on HomeWorld. He needed something from them in order to complete his takeover of the Collective and the apparatus of the Continuum

He also wanted credit, he wanted an acknowledgment from the Observer Corps and any other survivors of the Collective, he needed their endorsement of his hostile actions, he required their consent to pursue his agenda any further.

He required a majority of the Collective to support him, if he were to accomplish his goal.  

He needed to winnow the field a little further. When it came to the moment that he forced them to make their choice, he had to leave them in a place where they would have only one choice.

It had to be life or death for Jim to prevail in the struggle.

Chapter Three: Maneuver

The Continuum was paralyzed.

The majority of the Collective had been shocked into catatonia.

Those members who were not blacked out, were bewildered.

This left Jim free to direct the defenses of the Central Planet.

He confirmed the threat approaching in the form of the rebel fleet, and he placed the defenses on auto pilot.

Chapter Four: Code

In the rebel fleet every senior commander was a member of the Observer Corps, all except one, the high priest, who gave his blessing to the whole affair.

These Observers betrayed the people of the Empire, the Continuum, and the Collective out of opportunism.

They had no code.

They were striving for glory, and autonomy.

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.
