Ziggurat of Clem IV
“Five seconds at full charge directed against the door Gunner Zinga. We are almost through to the interior of the structure.”
Adjusting his controls the Zidhe gunner pressed the firing stud for the portable heavy laser that he and another gunner operated for the glory of the Empire. The crimson needle of lethal light lanced to the ancient door of the Ziggurat and resumed cutting. Whatever the portal leading into the Ziggurat was made it it had already absorbed more punishment that a battle cruiser’s hull could withstand. This was the third day on Clem IV but the goal was nearly attained.
“Well laid Gunner, keep at it. We will be inside before the sun reaches its zenith.”
Commander Zarl turned away from the blazing light and surveyed his small task force. These few warriors were near to unlocking whatever secrets this Progenitor site contained. Sites like this were scattered all over the known galaxy, usually on dead worlds or moons, but Clem IV was temperate enough to be pleasant. He contacted his communication specialist and asked for a status update; it paid to be ever vigilant. The reply came fast and it was not good news.
“Commander I have poor tidings. We have unwelcome guests from the Octopod Combine. They took out our high level viewers but we have their landing co-ords. They are near and will be in weapons range in seven mini cycles.”
Zarl thanked Youta and then signalled a total stop on all invasive cutting. Once the laser cut out he opened a secure force wide channel and addressed his troops.
“We have enemies nearby. The accursed Octopod scum. We defeated them with ease on Multar Prime and we will do so again here. Combat stances and at all costs prevent them from gaining the Ziggurat and our equipment.”
There was a hearty chorus of agreement and one by one the Zidhe troops fanned out away from the ancient structure or sought a firing position on the steps. Zarl would try and halt the enemy as they emerged from the thick forest. In fact he might throw some Androids and Warriors into the trees to try and confuse their advance. Thinning the Octopods out would mean that once they broke cover the laser would cut them to quivering meat pieces before they reached the lower stairs of the Ziggurat.
“Zarl to Androids. Execute Command Five. Hide and Seek. Confirm.”
