"We radiate heat on the backside."

"Where will we get a part to do that? Not Meineke. We'll have to pay a lot for that muffler."

Battle assessment

"She changed her phucking tactics! Montalvan knew her tactics like the back of her hand, and Honor completely deviated from her norm and adopted a tactic she loathes!"

"Well... she is an Alpha. She may not know who her daddy is, but she damn well knows she wasn't born yesterday."

You made a mistake and I have a geas to point out all mistakes I see. It wasn't Generalfieldmarshal Adebayo who had studied Honor extensively, it was her deputy Grossadmiral Montalvan who did.

Thanks Robert! I corrected it upstream. I wouldn't want ppl to miss the humor by stumbling on the inaccuracy! Thanks again!

Ghost Rider puts out


"OMG! What's happening to the GR drones!? Are they being destroyed?"

"No mam. They're burning themselves out trying to transmit all of the data of what they see and don't see!"

"What are they transmitting now? I have never seen that code."

"HYPER OUT! ALL UNITS HYPER OUT!"

"What was that code, Honor?"

"It's an archaic Kama Sutra code. And I don't like taking it up the rear!"

Inspired by kzt's post ...

I strongly disagree. If the same, the arrogant overconfident fleet at Galton shows up at Darius they will be lucky to get back enough ships to be able to comprehend the attack that destroyed the fleet.
:lol:


Manticore Binary System

Admiralty discussing plans to attack Darius

A parody of Rambo.


Colonel Trautman played by Herlander Simões.

Teagle played by some arrogant Admiral.


A voice of reason ...


Admiral: Are you telling me that 200 of our ships of the wall against Darius is a no-win situation for us?

Simões: You send that many, don't forget one thing.

Admiral: What?

Simões: A good supply of body bags.

Simões: I don't think you understand. I didn't come here to rescue Darius from you. I came to rescue you from Darius.

Admiral: Well, we appreciate your concern Simões, we will try to be extra careful!

Simões: I'm just amazed they allowed any of your posse to live at Galton.

Admiral: Is that right?

Simões: Strictly speaking, they slipped up. You're lucky to be breathing.

Admiral: That's just great Simoes, you came here to find out why your Alignment blew a gasket!

Simões: You don't seem to want to accept the fact you're dealing with experts in guerilla warfare, with genetically altered men and women who are the best, with warships, with grasers, pulsers, with knives, with their bare hands. Men and women who've been genetically engineered to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In short, their purpose has always been to dispose of enemy personnel. To kill! Period! Win by attrition. Well Darius is the best.

Honor rolled pods from Manticore to Sol.

Honor was so mad that I can see her standing at the back door of the ship kicking the damn pods out herself!

"Out! ... Out! ... Out! ... Out! ... Out!"

"Honor, we can't get any more pods out there!"

"I don't care if we have to attach them with glue duct tape or rope! I want them out there!"

Nimitz assaults Honor

Galton System

After the sucker punch


"Why did you strike me Nimitz!"

<I told you I did not ever want to do it. But you told me to slap you hard if you were ever feeling like you did when we went to Sol. So I slapped the ever-loving ssssss...celery out of you>
