Chapter Two: Position

Jim took his position. He allowed his consciousness to simultaneously occupy the entire field of remote sensors overseeing every part of the fleet, both from the surface of home world and those positioned throughout the Central System.

He waited and watched, taking in the beauty of the last great vestige of military power the galactic Empire would ever put forward

He bifurcated his consciousness, dividing it between the remote viewing and listening equipment, and the instruments necessary to monitor the ongoing tumult with the Collective, suppressing it, dominating it.   

There was nothing else for him to do, he had to wait, the fleet and its commanders presented only a small risk to his position of control, but there was a risk and he had to manage it.

He divided his consciousness further taking up control of a brigade of drones, the mechanoid bodies that Observers dwelt in while they were on HomeWorld. Jim intended to meet the landing party in his mechanoid body, a vehicle with incredible destructive power.

The fleet approached, lighting the space all about them, a beautiful armada filled with the brave soldiers of the Empire.

These soldiers among all others had exhibited the type of independence that Jim desired to blossom in the Empire, the fact that they had joined the rebellion against the hierarchy was proof of that.

They were coming. Jim felt that it was a shame he had to destroy them, it would have been better to scatter them among the million worlds.

To arrive at the Central Planet and reach him, they would have to navigate the weapons fields, they knew it would not be easy.

The Observers in command of the fleet knew this, wanted to risk it, believing they could predict the firing solution. Only the High Priest was skeptical of their plan, as he watched, taking it all in, wondering what the so-called Gods needed an army for, and why the paradise of the Collective appeared to be located on a lifeless shell.

Chapter One: Evasion

When the energy weapons on the Central Planet powered up, it was instantly detected by the fleet commanders, and they separated from one another in predictable patterns.

However, they could not see the missiles and projectiles that covered the other vectors, which the energy weapons did not. There was no place for them to flee.

Chapter Three: Target

The Admiral of the rebel fleet was no fool.

He sent the armada in as decoys, drawing fire from the defenses of HomeWorld.

The energy weapons were easy to avoid. They guided the rebels like sheep into the path of projectiles.

The armada was cut apart while he landed in the heart of the world.

Chapter Four: Mele

The expeditionary forces were gallant.

They landed under heavy fire.

They knew that there was no retreat, advance or perish.

They were met by a myriad of drones on the surface, and they were cut down to a small contingent.

They found their way to a vestibule that led them into the infrastructure of HomeWorld.

Chapter Six: Victory

The Observers opened up a portal to the Collective, and they verified three things:

The Continuum had been destroyed.

Jim was in control of everything.

He would accept their surrender.

He issued terms for a realignment of the faith and the Imperium.

Chapter Seven: Defeat

The rebels had dreamt of the destruction of Continuum for millennia.

They had formed a fifth column, a cryptic cabal, passing schemes from world to world in the most carefully held plots.

In reality they were followed by the Continuum, they had no secrets at all.

Then their schemes were usurped by one rogue member.
