Code Ragnarök : Jedi Potter & Company
Alpha Centauri I : Avalon Republic Council Chambers
Master Yoda, the currently elected temporary (5 year term) head of the Avalon Republic leaned forward and looked at the gathered High Council. The nine individuals were all present although some were only there in holograph form. Yoda's unusually grim face caused many in the council to speculate internally on the cause. “Received a communique from the SGC, have we.” Yoda leaned forwards and tapped lightly at his custom console. In the middle of the council area a beam of light became a large semi-transparent sheet with the following words.
FROM: Earth SGC, Earth, Sol System, Sector 001
RE: IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE REQUIRED
1. Cleveland, USA Hellmouth opened by hostile extradimensional combat elements. Earth territory penetrated and ISWC alert teams on site overwhelmed.
2. Alert message transmitted in clear at 2019 hours from onsite OIC Dawn Summers -- SET CODE RAGNAROK. Extradimensional telemetry indicates HXD units tasked with establishing beachhead for follow-on forces. All subsequent contact lost. Efforts to re-establish so far unsuccessful.
3. QRF teams deploying on orders from ISWC and SGC IAW Article 9 of the IOA. However, anticipate QRF units to experience 90% + casualties upon contact.
4. Request any and all available craft and units be deployed by any and all means to Earth to assist with repelling hostile forces and evacuation of civilian populace as well should tactical situation and intelligence updates indicate such need.
5. RETRANS message to all available organizations and units as can receive and respond, to include interstellar and extradimensional entities capable of mobilizing a response.
“Confirmed as being from a dimension not ours this is. Colonel Carter a signature to translate there has sent. Commander Potter, Disposition of current forces?” Yoda asked.
Commander Harry Potter the current head of the military forces of the Avalon Republic, leaned his holographic form forwards. “I have two combat brigades ready with three Asgard class vessels in the reaction force. I can be near Earth orbit in ten minutes with the Odin, Thor, and the Baldur for evacuation and med support. I have 48 fighter squadrons and enough assault shuttles to drop both brigades.”
Yoda looked around and received nods from the entire council. The decision was made. “Commander the reaction force take through into the dimension the distress call from. A recon force send into the Hellmouth the co-ordinates to determine to take your force there, by any means disable their portals. Killed try not to get, your wife would never forgive me. Send we will the Hiemdall and Ares to support the ground effort.”
Potter simply nodded and reached down out of sight of the transmitter and the hologram winked out.
Earth Stargate Command, Cheyenne Mountain Colorado
Major General Jonathon “Jack” O'Neill was exhausted. What with the Fifth Empire Planetoids, the Galactic Republic, The Galactic Empire, and a huge portal 15 miles east of Cleveland spewing out millions of demons bent on conquering not just this world but this universe and with the danger to other universes being high, he'd had a bad few days. So when Walter called him about three new portals opening between Mars and Earth he simply nodded and reached for the sadly depleted bottle of ibuprofen. Then he stood up and walked down to the Stargate control room. “What do we have?” He asked.
“Three unknown configuration vessels with enough firepower that they could probably punch a hole in the planet, Sir.” Walter reported. “Incoming signal.”
“On speaker,” replied O'Neill.
“Stargate Command, I am Commander Potter of the Avalon Republic. We received your distress signal and are prepared to drop two combat Brigades and support elements. Just tell us where to land.”
“Commander Potter I am Major General O'Neill of Stargate Command. I am sending you a series of transponder codes that identify friendly forces. I am showing that SG-15 is in need of rotation out of their zone however I have no forces available to relieve them.” O'Neill radioed back.
“Roger, Stargate Command, transponders identified. Drop craft proceeding to SG-15's location.” As Commander Potter spoke large numbers of craft started to launch from the aft sides of the Asgard Class Battleships Odin and Thor. The ships themselves looked like a old ballistic submarine's with two massive turrets each bearing three massive cannons in the forward dorsal position with a huge bridge type structure behind with an equally massive turret in the mid ventral position. Aft of the bridge was a square superstructure with hatches placed evenly alongside. Dozens of smaller turrets were placed evenly along both the top and bottom of the 12 KM long vessels.
