Due to the increasing amount of Fanfics, I thought I would do something different. Here it is; a HW Prequel based on the Progenitors. Comments and Critics would be welcome.
Acts I and II are not polished nicely because they were intended to be shortened into the prologue, but I wrote a better description anyway. The main story begins from ACTIII.
THE PROGENITOR Empire.
Spanning nearly an entire galactic super cluster, the empire prospered. It had trillions of inhabitants all under the beloved rule of the Progenitor capital, A One Prime and the current Progenitor Emperor, Sajuuk the great.
During the early part of his predecessor's rule, the Empire had come under threat by an equally powerful and tyrannic race called the Zolenoths. To counter the threat, the Emperor ordered the Evacuation of their original Homeworld and told the people that it was for protecting it from possible war and destruction.
The Truth however was to build a secret Flagship, so powerful that it could alone defeat an entire galactic fleet. When ready it could spearhead the Progenitor forces, take the Xolenoths by surprise and crush them for complete victory. It is now 5009 PSR (Prime Standard Year), The Royal Engineer, Kaalra-Sun is waiting eagerly outside the Emperor's Palace to Show the Complete Model of the Flagship Ultima. War Begun during Sajuuk's reign.
A Progenitor Emperor was nothing more then a leader. He was not considered a divine or a superior human. Although his office was hereditary, a tyrant could be changed by the people who had the power to elect a new linage. The Republic System was changed to the Emperor System because of the vastness of the Empire. It became impossible for an entire galactic super cluster to vote on a periodic basis.
The New Imperial Palace, Progenitor Capital, A01
The Emperor's Chief Adviser, Maakin-Yol, told him, Emperor, our chief engineer has returned with some very good news.
And what is that ?
Progress on Project Ultima. he replied.
Emperor held him back.
Send him in
A young progenitor entered the room, he had bright eyes, was tall and wore an excited look on his face. Facing the Emperor,
he keeled and said, Emperor, I have excellent news, Project Ultima is a complete success.
Excellent. What you and the team have done will prove to be the turning point in this war. Give me the details of the weaponry.
Emperor Sajuuk saw the look on Kaalra-Sun's face which suggested that he would not be disappointed.
Kaalra activated a holographic projector which displayed the most ultra-modern ship ever known to the Universe.
It was stunning, it had smooth curved hull the front apex bursting with lots of weapons. It's weapons were effectively placed,which could undoubtedly fire in any direction it wanted.
It had no plasma-ejectors or the more advanced high-energy reflector engines which suggested that it could be moved by inertia less or quantum-deflection drives. The Ultima also had what appeared to be huge panels on it's sides, which, on closer inspection, could be seen as extensive Point Defense Systems.
Behold our Flagship, the Ultima. said Kaalra-Sun, his eyes gleaming in the neon light.
The Ultima, he continued, is a megalith, 200km in diameter. It is equipped with simultaneous construction capabilities of classes ranging from microships to Mini-Motherships. he paused,
It has an armament of 200 pulsar cannon and 300 Kinetic-guns with both fast-tracking and rapid-fire typed as the point defense systems. It also has 30 high-powered Ion Cannons which have a full 100% coverage.
Its has 3 directional mounted triton cannons, 10 angular trinity canons, Rapid-fire Ion-Plasma Guns, the works. He leaned closer to Sajuuk and said,But the best thing of all... it can create ships without using a single load of resources. It converts energy into matter.
Emperor Sajuuk stared at Kaalra, and said, I thought that matter converters were still inefficient for use in ship-building.
They were, Kaalra said, But I managed to implement them on an efficient basis, I made a hyperspace container with the ability to store pure quantum energies until they could be converted to matter by the means of a zero point energy tube. We can even change the element made by changing the energy levels in the tube.
Maakin looked dazed, he asked,Where does it get so much energy from ?
It is powered by a series of dark energy reactors, our new alternative to the old high-energy fusion drives. It has a cryogenic storage facility for the huge crew it requires, capable of containing up to 1.5 million people.
Brilliant the Emperor muttered.
Emperor, Kaalra said,We need an Unbound Pilot, can you suggest someone suitable ?
Sajuuk said,I will do that myself. I would like to have our current flagship, the Saapa, to be upgraded with the matter creating facility. Also, for security reasons, make the Saapa, the key for the Ultima. You may leave. the Emperor finished, gesturing Kaalra to the door.
After Kaalra left, Maakin asked the Emperor, We are now indestructible, there is nothing that can stop the light. Kaalra has certainly done very well.
Sajuuk walked to the windows and gazed at the massive capital city Mazz-Doma.
'We shall see.' he said.
The High Palace, Xolenoth Capital, Morademo Prime
Xolenoth All High, Desolar and his commander-in-chief, Savole Rade Insoa, had an expression of absolute disbelief after what their spies had just reported to them.
The Holographic Projector flickered into life, displaying the same Ultramodern design of the Ultima.
Your Grandness, this new ship, it's invincible. We have identified no weakness. What do you propose we do ? Savole said with fear in his eyes.
Don't worry, Desolar replied, his eyes never leaving the hologram, There's always a weakness.
But, your grandness-
The All High held up his hand and uttered a single word-
