-Africa base-

???????: *AHEM*

interrupting the conversation an old man with gray hair was standing to the side of Sakura and her friend.  his hands rest on a long oak cane

???????: "I am Doctor Hickman the proprietor of the GN drives.  I was going to repair the Exia for you but after that performance I think I've changed my mind I'll be keeping both it and the Virtue.  I don't think the AGGF needs them and besides I have uses for them."

the serious expression on his face left no room for arguments

Hickman: "I've arrange transportation for you two.  It will take you and that mech back to your Asia base."

again the stern expression made this into an unsubvertable order coupled with the fact that he quickly left the pilots alone with no time to object


the Enact from earlier followed the lighted runway even in the slackening snow entering into an underground which a large Blue machine a medium sized red machine and Hamgrabi.  the Red haired mercenary left his mech to be escorted by a notably nervous DC gopher. 

He soon found himself in a lounge with an equally vicious looking Blond haired man

???: "you the one who called me out here?"

Yazan: "nope. looks like the big boss around here wanted us both"

???: "I hope this is worth it I lost a good job to come here."

????????: Oh I assure you Mr. Saachez, what I have to say will no doubt interest you greatly.

the base commander smiled even as the two vicious men turned their gaze towards him

~Duragreiz Bridge~

Bright: Status update.

Operator: Repairs to the hatches are at 95%, and three more blast doors need to be fixed. Oh, and the repairs are finally done on the infirmary walls.

Bright: Finally. Next time someone destroys my ship, I'm making a persona non grata list, starting with the pilots and working my way up from there.

Operator: Duly noted, sir. And I think we all agree.

Comm Officer: *Checks her station*....Sir, we're picking up a signal. It's being broadcast worldwide. *Her eyes widen as she checks the source* It's coming from the Earth Cradle!

Bright: Put it on screen! *His eyes widen as he sees the image* This is...!!!

~Aoi Tsubasa Lounge~

Derek: *Walks into the room, lacking any sort of shirt but still managing to dry his hair around his visor* Ah, showers. Every once in awhile, humanity does something right. *Stops and looks as he realizes the entire group is crowding around the lounge's TV*.....Okay, what's going on?

Haruka: *Wordlessly shifts over so he can get a look*

Derek: *Moves up to see* This had better be--Ah. Yeah, that'd do it.

~Being broadcast worldwide~

*A grim-faced man bearing scars from countless battles long past and wearing the uniform of a military colonel stands in front of the camera, his arms folded and his eyes closed. Finally, he opens his eyes and stares down the camera, and presumably the entire world audience, through it.*

Van: People of the Earth Sphere! I am Colonel Van Vat Tran, last surviving officer of the Divine Crusaders. Listen to what I have to say.

The Earth Sphere is in grave danger. From beyond the stars, alien beings lurk with the intention of destroying humanity, or worse, enslaving us for their own purposes. But rather than stand up and prepare to battle this threat, the world is in chaos. Entire military forces rise to power and fall into obscurity within mere months, and armed terrorists run rampant, doing as they please. The Neo-Titans forced the entire UNS military into exile to secure their own power, only to be wiped out themselves and reabsorbed into the EFA forces. But has the EFA done anything? No! An alien menace looms just over the horizon, and all they have done is throw away the lives of their soldiers in an ineffectual military campaign, and even now continue to exhaust valuable resources on fruitless endeavors. When the extraterrestrials return to this world, Brian Midcrid will no doubt cower at their feet, or behind his precious "Aegis Plan", while the rest of the world burns around him. Is this what we want? Is this the way we wish to see humanity end?

I refuse to accept such a fate!

The legendary Macross defeated the Zentradi, but they could do nothing about the actions of the treacherous humans who owed them everything. The miracle of the L5 Campaign against the Aerogaters will not happen a second time. If anyone is going to stand up for humanity's sake, it must be humanity itself! It was for that purpose that our founder, Dr. Bian Zoldark, created the Divine Crusaders in the first place. To prove to the world that we do not need the Shield of Aegis, when we can wield the Scythe of Harpe! If the ones in power will not help humanity, then they must be removed!

It is for that reason that I ask of all of you. Every man, woman, and child. Zentradi, or human. If you wish to protect the planet we all call home, I ask you to join your strength to mine. For the promise of a better tomorrow, I ask every one of you to come together, and join our cause! The dream that Bian Zoldark envisioned when he created the Divine Crusaders continues to smoulder in the ashes, and it is from those ashes that we rise again. For make no mistake, we are no mere remnants of the DC. We have been revitalized, even reborn! No, we are not the old Divine Crusaders...we are the new! We are....

*The camera pans back to show Van entirely, standing with the DC flag as a backdrop behind him*

The Neo Divine Crusaders....The Neo DC!!!

~Duragriez Bridge~

*As the speech ends and the broadcast starts to just show the NDC insignia onscreen, Bright sits down in his chair and sighs tiredly*

Operator: Captain...that was....

Bright: I know what that was. That was a declaration of war.

~Aoi Tsubasa Lounge~

Derek: *Sits down on the couch quietly, pondering the gravity of the situation*

Haruka: *Turns the TV off* Well, Captain?

Derek:.....*Stands up* Take this as a hint, guys. The screwing around is over. Van Vat Tran just issued a challenge to the world, and he's got the means to back it up. That means it's our turn to step up. Everyone get set and strap in. There's a storm on the horizon, and we're headed straight for it.

-Gai's Office-

a simple button push killed the small desktop tv from which the speech had just played and was now emitting cheers from DC solders

as expected... I wonder if Doctor Zoldark would've support this?

-Russian DC base-

the Three had seen the broadcast at the commanders behest the screen it had been displayed on folded away as Ali-al Saaches spoke

Ali: "so you're offering me a job with the DC?"

????????: "not exactly you'll be working directly for me"

Yazan: "but aren't you with the DC? after all they're the ones who sign my paychecks"

????????: "not exactly Mr. Gable I'm with what you might call an Independent party.  Our goals are a little different but we need the DC and more specifically men like you"

Ali:  "as long as I get paid to fight I don't care what you want."

the commander wrote something on a sheet of paper and slid it over to the mercenary

????????: "Will this suffice, weekly of course"

Ali lifts the paper and whistles at the sum. he smiles as he makes it official

Ali: "when do I start? Boss."

After hearing the broadcast, Sakura quickly had her and Chaostic's things into the transport and then put Chaostic in and started the transport and headed towards the rest of the AGGF

This is going to be bad, I know that everyone won't be sitting around after hearing that message. I better hurry and get us back.

Having just woken up and turned on his television, only to see the broadcast, Ianator is already headed for the mess.

And thus the entire Earth Sphere is plunged into civil war once again.

A while after his joyride, Ash walks onto the bridge of the Aoi Tsubasa just in time to catch the boardcast of the Neo DC

Ah hell, there goes the planet.

Thinking for a second Ash quickly comes up a carefully, well thought out plan. Something that would bring a shinning light into this moment of darkness

Derek: Black olives on mine.

Haruka: I'll take the supreme.

Alexis: Strawberries and chocolate!

Fuyume: Me too!

Masaki: Pepperoni. Keep it simple.

Shortly after the broadcast, Matt's cell phone went off.  "Hello?"

"Dude, did you see that broadcast?!"

"What broadcast, Dave?"

"Some 'Van Vat Tral' just declared war on the world and reinstated the DC!"

"You'd think I'd hear these things directly by now, huh?  Well, looks like they're the idiots who kidnapped my mom, then.  I'm stuck with AGGF for now, so I'll have to see what they decide to do with me before I act, especially since I don't have a mech at the moment."

"I'd help you out, but I don't own any."

"I know, I know.  Just go into hiding before they get interested in that new thing you were working on, and if you finish it, let me know."

"Got it."

Matt hung up on his eccentric friend, who claimed to be working on a new power armor that could fight on par with a VF-1.  He wasn't exactly anticipating results, so he turned to Chris and said "We might want to postpone that trip.  Seems someone's set up something called the Neo DC now and declared war on the world a la Zoldark.  Somehow, this feels like the wrong time to just take off on a selfish mission..."

And so the endless waltz of history repeats itself again.

Shara: "Waltz of history? What the hell sort of idiocy is that?"

Well, you see... it's like... A waltz has three beats, and...

"No, don't try to explain. Shut up while you still have some shred of dignity left."

So harsh...
Guess it's time to get the guns out again.
Knew it was too quiet to last.

"I was bored out of my mind. Bring on the war."

Right, I forget. You're insanely trigger-happy.

"No, Jay. You forget that I was literally MADE for war.THIS is what gives my life meaning."

That's really depressing. Thank you for reminding me why we fought so hard against the Balmarians.

"Oh, you'd've liked it once they rewired your brain."

I like my brain as it is, thank you very much.

"Good. Besides, they wanted drones, not warriors."

And since I'd rather not dwell on this topic any longer.... you wanna give me a hand moving some stuff?

"That depends greatly on what sort of stuff."

I finally picked up a REAL weapons locker for sickbay. Doc might can smash robots with a wooden sword, but the rest of the staff isn't so lucky. And given the ship has a cyborg prone to going berserk and shooting holes in the sickbay, I thought they might want some light anti-mecha gear in there. Something they can immobilize a walking battle tank with.

"I want to see the video when they try to use it. That's all I ask in return. I've lost too much sleep to that nonsense."

You've got yourself a deal. Let's go.

A couple hours later Ash returns from the kitchen to the bridge. The mech pilot is dressed in an outfit very different from his normal attire. Instead of his pilot suit he has on a white dress shirt and black vest almost making him look like a waiter, on top of all that he has on a white apron with bold red writing that says "Needs more Rider Kick." Balancing various personal pan versions of the crews order, he quickly sets them down in front of their resistant ordered.   Before sitting down himself with a deep dish pepperoni.

Ash: (holds up part of his pizza) Itakimasu!

Quickly finishing his pizza and saying something about "You guys can do the dishes." Ash pulls off his apron and walks out of the bridge. Eventually making his way to the hanger, he stands in front of 21.

Ash: Alright Abiou, time to give you a tune up. (shakes his wrist as the Taros fall out and appear on the floor) Naps over guys.

Momotaros: Five more miutes.

Kintaros: Z Z Z Z Z Z….

Ryutaros: Is it time for breakfast?

Urataros: Why did you wake me up, I was having such a nice dream about many lovely ladies.

Ash: (crosses his arms)

Momotaros: (slowly gets up) Fine. Kuma, Kame, Ryuta, let's go. Time to help the boy fix his little toy.

A caped figure strides through the DC base, heading towards a meeting/

???: "Hello."

Lemon: "You're late, you know. I trust things are going well?"

?: "You've brought a quite intriguing device with you. Some of it seems familiar, but some of it I'm having to work the basic principles of operation as I go. And the core seems to be missing some critical components. I suppose if you had those, you wouldn't need me."

L: "Indeed. I hope this is meeting with more success than that project for the DC."

?: "That was due to incompetent assistance. One man failed to deliver the virus, and when it made it in through sheer chance, the other man assumed we'd already won. Then tipped our hand to the AGGF, so they know the DC is after them. Why the DC tolerates idiots like that is beyond me. In MY organization, they'd all be out an airlock."

L: "Speaking of which... where IS your organization right now?"

?: " *ahem* It seems some of my more trusted men had ambitions. When I went missing, they all lunged for the throne. Most of my equipment and men are gone."

 "Good people are so hard to find aren't they?"
Lemon smiles as she says this, and places an odd, but ever-so-slight emphasis on people.

?: "Androids aren't exactly trouble-free either, the way I hear it. "

Lemon's smile disappears instantly.
"What did you-"

?: "I fully expect you've bugged my office too. I don't trust you, you don't trust me. We're only here because we need a hand at the moment."

Lemon's smile returns.
 "I see the people in this world DO have teeth. I'll have to be more careful in the future."

The man grins.
"Please do. It makes life far more interesting. By the way... I have an attack plan that benefits all of us."

L: "All of us? I'm listening."

The man brings up a map of the area around the AGGF on his PDA, and starts pointing to spots while he talks.
?: "We can set a small force here, uncloaked. We set reinforcements here, *he points to a spot near the first force, and more forces here and here. *he points to two spots farther away from the first force, but far closer to the base."

L: "The other two forces won't be able to close in fast enough to close the trap."

?: "They're a second trap. If the AGGF deploys a small force to deal with our bait force, we can strike them down with the reinforcement team, removing at least one of their commanders. If they send their full might at the bait, they leave their base undefended, and-"

L: "We can steal their ships with these other forces!"

?: "Exactly. I'd like to include this mecha in the bait force."

Lemon looks at the PDA, then smiles.
L: "Have you looked at this unit's pilot?"

?: "I couldn't care less who flies it, as long as they can fight. Probably one of your robots anyways."

L: "No, this pilot's human.... partially, anyways."

Tapping a button she passes the PDA back to the claoked figure, and watches the look on his face.

L: "Even across dimensions, your destinies seem to intertwine. Perhaps fate has it's own - "

?: "HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it! Yes, he'll do nicely. "

L: "Then let's begin preperations."

?: "Yes. I DO wonder which net will close this time."

(OOC: Shouldn't be ??? too much longer now.)

~HQ Kitchen~

Masaki: Man, Derek took off fast.

Haruka: He IS second-in-command, after all. With the Neo DC announcement, he needs to make sure we're ready in case they try to retake this base again. You saw how well we fared last time.

Masaki: Yeah. And Alexis went straight back to the ship to work on the mechs.

Haruka: Fuyume, naturally, went to help.

Masaki: *Nods* Yeah, things are getting busy for everyone. Which makes me wonder....*Holds up a plate* Why are WE doing the dishes?

Haruka: *Finishes scrubbing off another plate and hands it to Andoh* They needed to be done, and you didn't find something else to do fast enough. That's life.

Masaki: Yeah....

*The two of them continue to do dishes for several minutes in silence*

Masaki:.....So, what do you think about this NDC thing?

Haruka: *Shrugs* We're going to fight them, that much is assured. My thoughts on the subject don't really matter.

Masaki: Of course they do. Even if there's no choice in whether or not you fight, your thoughts and feelings on why you're fighting still matter. If you just stopped caring about it, then what's the point?

Haruka:....That's surprisingly pep-talkish of you, Masaki. Remind me to check the chemicals in this soap, later.

Masaki: Hah hah. Real funny.

Kuro: She's right, meow. We're usually the ones getting the pep-talk, not the other way around. *Finishes drying off a plate with the towel wrapped around her tail*

Shiro:....You missed a spot, meow.

Kuro: *Flicks her tail and throws the towel in Shiro's face*

Haruka: *Smirks as she hands off another plate* I won't argue your point, but it doesn't really matter. We're going to fight the Neo DC, and that just isn't going to change.

Masaki:.....Because Rena joined them, right?


Masaki: Derek likes to be mysterious, but he's really predictable when she's involved.

Haruka: *Nods* As long as he has reason to believe she joined the NDC, he'll go through every last one of them to find her. That's why my thoughts don't matter, because I know they won't change his decision any.

Masaki: Do you agree with it?

Haruka:....Anyone else, and I'd say no. But I trust him. Some.

Shiro: *Looks over at Kuro with the towel still on his head* What's that mean, anyway?

Kuro: It means she's coming along to make sure he doesn't get himself killed, meow.

Haruka: He's going to chase after her, no matter what we do. The best I can do is give him all the support I can and hope for the best. We'd give you the same help, if it came down to Shu.

Masaki: Ergh...

Kuro: Oh no, she said it.

Shiro: Cue depressed Masaki in three, two....

Masaki:.....How much....have you heard about that, anyway?

Haruka: Not much, but I know a blood vengance when I see one. You're usually pretty single-minded about it.

Masaki: *Stares at the plate in his hand*.....Shu left a lot of bodies in his wake, back in La Gias. Someone really important to me was among them. That's why I can't....

Haruka: *Puts her hand on Masaki's shoulder* I understand. Just don't think you'll have to do it alone.

Masaki:.....*Closes his eyes and puts the plate down in the water* Yeah. Derek and Jay have both said the same thing. And I appreciate it. *Laughs a little as he looks down at the water* Y'know, chasing Shu is what got me involved in the DC War in the first place.

Haruka: I remember hearing about it. The Hiryu spotted you on the way to the Coatsland base in Antarctica at first, then you got there just in time to save the SRX Team from being wiped off the map by the Granzon.

Shiro: Then we met the Hagane again at, uh, some island or another. I don't remember which one.

Kuro: There were a lot of islands out there, meow.

Haruka: *Nods* You took out the entire base's cannon grid with one Cyflash, which put you out just long enough for the Hagane to pick you up.

Masaki: *Winces* Yeah, not one of my better moments.

Kuro: They didn't get very long to talk to us before Masaki decided to take off again.

Masaki:....Yeah. The only reason I stuck with the Hagane was because Elzam told me to.

Haruka: Because Shu was a high-ranking DC officer, so you'd have a better chance getting to him in one piece if you went with a group.

Masaki: That was the excuse, but...

Haruka: But...?

Masaki: I've...had some time to think back on it. And yes, before you make any cracks, I DO think every once in awhile.

Haruka: Go on.

Masaki: The DC took the Feds completely by surprise, and the UCC completely took over space. They pretty much had the world by the throat, but...They didn't go for it. Even with all the firepower they had, all the chances they had to win the war, they lost to two ships, a handful of mechs, and the maniacs driving them. On two seperate fronts. At first, I thought it was because we were just that damned good, or maybe that damned lucky, but...

Haruka: As time went on, you started to suspect otherwise.

Masaki: I had a chance to think back on it. A lot of the officers in the DC were slimeballs. Tenzan Nakajima, Tempest Hawker, Alder Koch...Those assholes just wanted to kill as many people as they could. We wouldn't have lost to creeps like them on our worst day, but they would have thrown everything they could at us as soon as they realized we were a real threat. But the guys actually running the show....Elzam....Shu....and old man Zoldark himself? They almost opened the front door and let us walk right in.

Haruka: The official report said that the Kurogane did just enough damage to the Hagane to stop it's Tronium Cannon from hitting the main base.

Masaki: *Nods* Elzam didn't want us to just blow the place and walk. He wanted us to fight Bian, face to face. Zoldark said our fight with him would determine the Earth's fate. We all thought he was just talking about the DC, but even after he died, Alder took the remaints and kept fighting. That wasn't fate, it was just another jackass trying to take over the world. It wasn't until the Aerogaters showed up that I really got what the old man was talking about, at the end.

Haruka: About mankind standing up together against the alien invaders?

Masaki: *Nods*.....I dunno if I ever mentioned this, but I'm the one who actually killed him. Even at the end, knowing full well that death was waiting for him, all he wanted was for the rest of us to keep going. His one big regret was.....*Looks away, back into the water*....Ryune...

Haruka: His daughter. But, she joined up with you to help fight Alder's DC forces, didn't she?

Masaki:....Yeah. And she and I are actually pretty good friends. Sometimes, I wonder if she thinks of me as a little more than that. But I just....*Shakes his head* It's kinda hard sometimes, to look at her and not think to myself, "I'm the reason your dad's not around anymore."

Haruka: *Smirks, and pats Masaki on the shoulder again* A thoughtful gentleman, you are. Bian would have loved a son-in-law like you, I'm sure.

Masaki: Yeah, I guess--Wait, WHAT?! *Immediately backs away from Haruka, hands in front* WHOAWHOAWHOAWHOA--I dunno WHO you've been talking to, but she and I aren't--We haven't--IT'S NOT LIKE THAT, I SWEAR!!!!

Haruka: *Bursts out laughting* Ah, it's fun to tease you sometimes.

Masaki: You did that on purpose?! YOU SUCK!!

Haruka: *Smiles* And you're not depressed anymore, are you?

Masaki:.....Not really. Thanks, I guess.

Haruka: *Shrugs* It's what I do. So, what are you gonna do with the NDC?

Masaki: *Thinks about it for a second*....I don't know this Van Vat Tran guy, but whatever his excuses for doing it are, he's bringing another war down on the world, and using Bian Zoldark's name to do it. For his sake....and everyone else who died in that stupid war, no matter which side they were on....and, for her, too.....I won't let him get away with it. The real Divine Crusaders died with Bian Zoldark at Aideonus Island. Everyone else who's brought them back since are just fakes, cashing in on the name for their own plans. Those are the ones I can't forgive.

Haruka: So you'll be right there with us when we put an end to it.

Masaki: Hell yeah! It took three Akashic Busters to finally put old man Zoldark down. Anyone who tries to follow him better be ready to eat FOUR.

Haruka: Glad to hear it. But, before you go out and drop hellfire down on anyone....*Motions Masaki over*

Masaki: *Gets close*....Huh?

Haruka: *Points at the plate still sitting in the water* You missed a spot.
