Following the coordinants given to them by Nyphale the small group has arrived in a desolate place. The rubble of Civalized worlds torn apart by some hollocost float through space. Corspes still fresh due to the preserving effect of a vacume drifted through view. Some soldiers. Others civilian. The bodies of children seemed to wonder as though still looking for their mothers.
In places black holes consumed the rubble. Trig turneed away no longer able to bare the view. "Did.....judgement do this?" Fudo asked. "This could only be done by either someone who is completely heartless. Or by someone who didn't have enough grasp on reality to kno what they were doing. But this looks too sloppy to be anything Judgement did." Darth Frag responded while adjusting his sunglasses.CLICK
"I'm getting life signs from some of these planets" Sais Gomisaki. "Gomisaki set us down on the nearest one. Let's see if anyone can tell us what happened." Fudo commanded. Gomisaki lowered into the orbit of a nearby blue planet and landed in a grassy field. The three wanderers stared to the ruins of an advanced civilization on the horizon. ON horseback a someone aproached. A young black man wearing some manner of vizor over his eyes dismounted. His clothes were raged. At his side was a makeshift bladed weapon. He looked up at the Gomisaki for a moment before speaking. "How did you get here? Unless you came by the ether stream there's no way you could use warp technology. And it doesn't pass by here."
Darth Frag scratched his head. Trig approached the man. "You seem to know a bit about quantum physycs so it shouldn't surprize you if we told you that we aren't from your universe." The man nodded his head in the affirmitive. "Oh I see. But I didn't think anyone traveled to our world anymore. Not after the Hollocost. Hmmmm You had better come with me." The young man mounted his horse and led on.CLICK
They soon arrived in the ruined city. As the passed through people were scurrying around trying to pull free any scrap they could. Any semblance of technology. Even still the roaches followed as they had throughout history. Darth Frag glanced over. "They say that roaches would outlive humanity. But it looks like they're just as attached to us as we are to our machines." "That's proven all to true." Responded the black man. "You were talking about the ether stream before. What is it?" Trig asked. "Ether was an old word used for timespace fabric. It's hard to gauge time anymore without it but I'd wager to say it wasn't too long ago that our world was hit by a terrible weapon. We had just made contact with an interdimensional organization called the Dimensional Guardian Force. We were beginning to talk about technology trades when it happened. They turned on us. They fired some sort of doomsday weapon on us. They called it the dimensional canon. It tore the very fabric of reality apart. Most of our universe was gone after that. What gave them the right to fire on us? No one should have the power to turn a weapon like that on countless innocent people." The black man clenched his fist and stopped talking for a moment. He drew a deep breath and continued. "Three planets and a few space vessels survived though. Earth and jupiter survived by sheer luck. The Romulans actually moved their home planet through a wormhole and placed into orbit here in the Sol system in order to survive. That's all that we know exists. Beyond this little fragment of the solar system. it's nothing but darkness forever. We're the last survivors. We're doing our best to scrape together some sort of existance."
"That's terrible." Said trig with a tear in here eye. "Yeah but you still didn't answer her question." Said Frag while Fudo gave him a harsh look. "It's alright. Even though a pocket of space has survived here most of it us still too unstable to use warp engines in. The ether stream is the last strip of stable space. It runs between earth and Jupeter where we're trying to terraform some of the moons. For about ten days each year Romulus passes through the ether stream. That's the only time we can contact them."
"Damn...so that's what Nyphale meant by no one to get in our way." Said Darth Frag. The black man stopped his horse at a shack. "This is my house. Not much I know but it keeps me warm. By the way. My names Jordy. Jordy LaForge. And you are?" "Trig Pathagerus" "Fudo Ruuo" "Darth Frag" Jordy stepped inside as the others followed. Inside a somewhat aged man wearing a lab coat with messy grey hair was sipping what barely passed for coffee. "This is Doc Brown. he was the last person to travel here."CLICK
Doc Brown rubbed his eyes still looking confused he put on his glasses. "Don't bother there really are two of us." Said Frag. "Oh then. How are you gentlemen? What brings you here?" Doc Brown asked. "It's hard to explain." Frag replied. "Doc Brown here is trying to save our dimension. He thinks he knows a way to reverse the effect of the Dimensional canon." Said Jordy. "Oh how so?" Trig asked curiously. "Space time fabric is rather resilliant stuff. All I have to do is locate the point of impact. Then it's a simple matter of figuring out how God did it but only using a mortal amount of power. You know the usual sciency stuff." Trig alsmost giggled at the remark but stiffled it. "Do you have anything more specific?" "Well yes I'm calling it the dimensional glue gun for lack of a better term. I've used it a few times already to stabalize black holes. It takes a lot of energy though. I don't think I can dig up enough to fire it on the universal scale more than once. So there's my problem. I'm still trying to locate the point of impact. I'm trying to judge it by the radiation as it effects the flow of the ether stream however my findings still don't come out right. I think it might be jupter's gravity throwing it off." Said Doc Brown as he showed Trig several charts of equations most of them being long devision done by hand. She glanced them over finally laying her hand on one line. "you forgot to carry the two." Doc Brown slapped himself on the forehead emberrassed at the oversight.
"Am I the only one who's head hurts?" Darth Frag said rhetoricly. "You're quite intelligent young lady. Do you think you could assist me?" Doc Brown asked. "I've seen catyclysms like this all my life. If I can turn back the clock on just one it will have all been worth it."CLICK
Fudo was back at Gomisaki still sitting in the middle of the grassy field. He stared up at the empty sky. Not a single star glistened back at him. Gomisaki's human form approached. "You know I never thought the night sky could be so dark. In the coldest dead of winter the stars always shine the brightest. A beacon of warmer days to come. But now there are no more stars. Does it mean then that this long winter will never end?" Said Fudo. "Master please don't feel sad." "Gomisaki you know my deepest secrets. You know more about me than I do. So tell me. Why am I so empty inside. Life feels so worthless now. I'm drawn to DarthFrag and to Judgement because I feel a little closer to whole when I near them. And yet they are both everything I despise. Mabey it's true that without evil there can be no good." Gomisaki and Fudo stared together at the empty night sky.CLICK
In the now deserted scrap piles Darth Frag stood taking out his frustrations on random debris. Trig approached him. "What are you doing out here? Preparing for your battle with Nyphale?" She asked. "Nah. sometimes I just feel like I gotta break something. I guess I'm just like a little kid. I get frustrated and have to throw a fit to get it out of my system." Darth Frag responded. "I came to tell you. The dimensional repair is going to happen. Doc Brown and I have everythign planned out. This universe is going to be saved. But everything that's happened since the hollocost will be undone. No one will remember Me or you or Doc brown. I guess it's best that they don't have to remember the sadness they went through." "So you've save the world. At least untill Judgement comes and blows it up." "But that's what I came to tell you. I think I've found a way to join you back with Judgement." "Woopty Fucking doo" "Please listen. If you're in the center of the repair when it happens. You'll be merged with judgement. and just like this world was reset so will all of judgement's crimes around the universe. Not only will it stop him it will undo all the wrongs he's done. Including my homeworld and....." "You'r fiance too. So you can go back home and forget all about me." "Frag are you......." "Forget it Trig. I'm a sith. I don't have feelings anymore." "But Frag what if I were...." "What..." "What if I'm in.....love ... with you too."CLICK
Frag stood silent for a moment. "Please.....even if we'll never know in the future. Can't we at least make what little time we have left matter." Trig said teary eyed. "Just for the moment....." "a moment. We can make it last forever." Trig stood up on her toes as frag leaned over. Their lips met and for one tiny moment in time both felt whole. Not a memory to recall it nor a star to be their witness. But a moment in time that would last for eternity.
