A New Journey
by AJ Marks
Patrolling around the edges of Colonial space a group of warships continued their vigilance against any outside threats that might appear. The patrol was made up of five ships centered around the Sunflare, an old battlestar that had long ago been rendered obsolete by the Columbia class battlestars. Along with the Sunflare was the Tiger, a cruiser, that specialized in anti-ship warfare and three frigates that provided anti-fighter defenses.
The Sunflare was one of three ships of the Starfire class. The ships were considered too expensive to build and only marginally effective in battle. The result had been in the loss of the two sister ships in battle leading to the much improved Columbia class. Now the Sunflare spent it’s time patrolling against pirates on the edges of known space.
The Sunflare carried a compliment of thirty vipers to go along with massive firepower, four type X lasers, the most powerful lasers ever fitted on board a Colonial warship. It was the compliment of fighters that many considered to be small considering the fact the Sunflare was almost the same size as a Columbia battlestar. With only twenty-four vipers it lacked the flexibility later warships would have.
That inability to be flexible had quickly been its downfall especially once the latest Cylon basestars appeared carrying almost three hundred raiders. Continue reading →

Fortunatus Light of Dark
by AJ Marks
Guilty! Ami heard the verdict, but could not wrap her mind around it. How could they find her guilty of such an act? It made no sense to her. She glanced from the judge to the jury wondering how they could do such a thing. She gripped the table out of fear her legs would give way. Glancing at everyone, the courtroom began to buzz about the verdict. The noise of the room however did nothing to calm her pounding heart.
She glanced over at her lawyer, who gave her the lone sympathetic look. He had told her that her chances were slim, but she had no idea how slim. They rammed the trial through with made up facts, destroying any image she might have had, and now threw her in front of an angry public, for a government failure. They managed to make her into a terrorist who cared nothing about human life, and the sole mastermind of a bombing plot that killed thousands of people.
She looked over the judge, who banged his gavel several times to get the joyous crowd silent. “Miss Ami Lewk, I only wish I could give you the death sentence. However, due to the laws I will do the next best thing, execution through the wormhole,” he said. Cheers greeted his words, and more than a few chanted for her death. “Effective immediately!”
Ami swallowed in shock at her sentence. She could feel the crowd’s hostility, almost physically, making her want to throw up. Somehow she managed to hold it together, at least until she caught up with her sentence, the wormhole! Science found a way to send people through a portal to somewhere else in the universe. Where they went no one knew, as none had ever come back. A few even thought they did not survive. Continue reading →

Ephiny and the Roman Army
By AJ Marks
Ephiny glanced back once more to where Gabrielle rode with the Conqueror. Giving a small shake at the sight of the Nation’s newest princess in the embrace of the Conqueror, a sight she never thought she’d see. Then again, she had seen many changes in the Nation in the past season.
During the winter the Nation had worked out a treaty with Greece, and the Conqueror, mainly with the persistence of a small slave, Gabrielle. That treaty had severed their growing dependency on Rome. Now, said slave, had gained the Right-of-Caste from Terreis. Top that off with the fact that the slave had more endorsements from other gods and goddesses than any mortal, including the blessing of Artemis.
Gabrielle, still nude, sat on the horse in front of the Conqueror who had one arm wrapped around her. Even Eph could see the love between the two. She knew no one else who could relax in the Conqueror’s embrace and still smile.
She returned her gaze forward knowing the questions that would arise when they got back. That also meant telling the Nation Gabrielle, a pleasure slave for the Conqueror, had received the Right-of-Caste. She’d been surprised, as had Eponin. Telling the rest of the group had been hard enough, with Jana only reluctantly accepting that but wondering out loud if the Conqueror hadn’t planned it.
Jana’s statement brought a verbal tirade from Gabrielle that Eph had not thought possible. In the end, it had been Airlea who stopped the arguing simply stating they could ask Artemis herself. That statement shut a lot of people up. That thought made Eph wonder if Airlea knew more than she said. She had seemed to it all without pause, as if she knew. Maybe Artemis had told her?
Approaching horses brought Eph attention back to the present. An honor guard approached with Solari in the front.
Eph, what’s going on? Why are they here and why is going on that has Queen Melosa in such mood since she received word from you?” Solari said.
Eph knew that things were probably tense, she also knew very little to what the Queen would have said, if anything.
“It’s a long story,” Eph said instead. Continue reading →
