Chapter Text
Prologue?¡°Captain, sleeper lure has reached target location. Time to activation 120 minutes¡­ Mark.¡±¡°Well done Lieutenant, Helmsman, takes us to the Mass Relay and prepare to head back to Shaanxi.¡±1 hour later¡°Sir! we have bogies on scanners, they don¡¯t show up on the magic detectors.¡±¡°Helmsman, how long till Mass Relay activation?¡±¡°10 minutes sir.¡±¡°Very well, Comms, open radio channels and broadcast greetings. Doc, break out the living death. All crew, be prepared for unscheduled dive. I repeat, all crew be prepared for unscheduled dive. Assistant Helmsman, prepare for evasive manoeuvres keep us in range of the Relay. I¡¯m sure that I speak for the rest of the crew when I say, I don¡¯t want to spend the next 5,000 years learning how to be an adult again.¡±The captain very carefully sets the dive drive to level 12 before lifting the cap on the Emergency override. ¡°First Officer, please confirm dive drive settings.¡±¡°Dive drive set to level 12. Sir is there any reason why we¡¯re not going to level 4 now?¡±¡°The early levels often overlap in space as they¡¯re so close together, if we¡¯re being fired on we might be pulled back to level 2. As such we¡¯re treating this as a potential emergency, so as SOP it¡¯s level 12.¡±Minutes later¡°Taking fire, evasive manoeuvres.¡±¡°We¡¯re hit, mundane engines are offline.¡±¡°All crew, Diving! Diving! Diving! Take living death in 10 seconds.¡±¡°Emergency recall anchor is active. Good luck sir, see you on earth.¡±¡°Dicta Quill log, all crew are in slumber. Magicite shielding has been disabled, Aether anchor is active, Life shielding is coming up to power, time to completion 48 hours. Time to lure activation, 45 days. Ship is now running on runic controls, status of electronic systems is unknown. Personal note, this is odd. Not 5 minutes ago we had less than an hour to vacate the system before the lure went off and we might be subject to sleeper incursion. Now we have all the time we could ever need, but we can¡¯t leave in case we attract the sleepers ourselves.¡±¡°Dicta Quill log, Live shielding is now online. All crew have shown normal acclimatisation to Aether levels. I will be taking my living death potion shortly. Personal note: Please tell my wife that I¡¯m sorry, I¡¯ll try to get retraining on Shaanxi but the planetary life shield is still so new.¡±¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T ?? ? ?? ¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨TOn board a Turian frigate, ¡°Sir, unknown vessel is broadcasting on radio frequencies, but has not ceased trying to operate the Mass Relay.¡±¡°Send the data back to Palaven and fire a warning shot across their bow, have the other patrol ships cut off access to the other Relays. They¡¯re probably just suit rats trying to find another hole to hide in. If they cease trying to activate the Relay hold fire.¡±¡°Captain, they have started evasive manoeuvres using an unknown propulsion method.¡±¡°All ships fire at will.¡±¡°We¡¯ve hit their engines sir¡­ Sir! They just disappeared.¡±¡°All ships, search the area, find whatever you can.¡±1 hour later¡°Captain, something has happened on Theta 1!¡±¡°Bring up a visual if you can.¡±The whole crew stare as the shadow something with too many tentacles takes a visible chunk out of the planet and disappears.The Captain breaths out, ¡°Spirits, Comms, signal the patrol, full retreat. Helmsman, get us out of here.¡±¡°Sir, eezo reactor is offline, the Engineer says that we¡¯re losing eezo rapidly.¡±¡°Helmsman, get that relay open! Comms signal the patrol, we are leaving through that relay.¡±¡°Sir, comms and computers are showing massive errors.¡±¡°Sir, Contact corewards 20k klicks and closing at 0.6c. No energy signatures to speak of¡­ and sensors are offline.¡±¡°Comms are offline.¡±¡°May the spirits guide you all to the afterlife.¡±¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T ?? ? ?? ¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T?¡°General, we lost contact with the patrol at Relay 314. The last data packet said they had found a ship that was trying to activate the Relay, and that the ship had disappeared after taking a hit.¡±¡°Where did the ship come from?¡±¡°Unknown sir, the sensor readings don¡¯t match any known vessels. There were also no eezo readings detected.¡±The General snorts, ¡°The STG know that trick, just switch your FTL drive off once you¡¯ve dumped the heat. They use it to run silent while activating relays.¡°Send a reaction fleet to find them, if the aliens aren¡¯t using FTL they can¡¯t have gone far even if they are able to use the Relays somehow. If we can nip this in the bud we can find out what they hell they were doing once we can communicate.¡±¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T ?? ? ?? ¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T¨T?1 month later¡°General, we have secured the aliens planet, however there are no signs of any of the occupants beyond their habitats and ground vehicles.¡±¡°Withdraw, they don¡¯t even have a city. This must be a colony, we¡¯ll inform the council and the STG will set up an observation post.¡±¡°Yes sir¡­ Sir, we¡¯ve lost contact with the omnitools of 2 patrols.¡±
