Johnny peered out of the cockpit window, his brow arched and his mouth sneering crookedly, "This is the capital?" He asked. Before him lay a red landscape of dusty, tall buildings which were lined together like great canyon walls, the streets appearing to be a ancient dried up river bed, only flowing now with ships and the eerily scarce civilian on foot. The capital of this small, relatively new moon was given the name Grall, a Marlek word that seemed oddly fitting even on the human tongue. The skies were clear, the sun shining brightly over head scorching the outside temperatures to over one hundred degrees. However a red hue hung everywhere as the thick atmosphere, while sustainable, took on nearly the same red color as the dirt of the earth. Here fresh water did not fall from the sky, for even the clouds were tinged with dust.
Sangela nodded slowly, "I was researching before we came here. This planet was corporately funded, a minin
NF Season 2 Ep 2 pt 4Issac stood on a human balcony on the wall of the community section of the ship. It was the largest room aside from the engine room, fitted with a large human balcony with comfortable seating and tables, as well as a human access to the larger room which looked almost identical to the human area, just larger. He gripped the edge of the balcony as he watched Kikata help the new girl carry some bags onto the ship, his brother perched upon Kikata's shoulder. He could never really understand how Richard felt safe up there.NF Season 2 Ep 2 pt 43 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He had trouble distinguishing how old the girl was, she looked as though she could have been anywhere from fifteen to twenty in human years. Either way he would have considered her pretty, her white hair adding a strange touch that didn't necessarily make her less attractive, but perhaps even more alien than Kikata appeared. She did not speak as Kikata explained to her where to find her own room, only nodding her head.
"Oh, Issac is ready." Kikata's voice said as she tur

A blue waterscape slipped below the ship as they raced towards the coast opposite of Kikata's home. "Here we are." Kikata said, her chest feeling heavy under a fresh wave of nervousness. Her eyes focused on a rapidly approaching landmass, the Cho's home land and the last place she saw Prila.
Richard glanced back towards Kikata, the concern was obvious across her brow and lips. "You feeling okay?"
Kikata nodded, "Yes, I'll be okay." Her eyes fell onto him, "We will go to Prila's house first, see if we can't find some pieces to this puzzle." She leaned back into her pilots seat, "Should we tell Issac?"
Richard shook his head, "Not until we have too. We'll just say we have some official business."
Kikata nodded, "I agree I guess. Don't want to scare him so early on."
"Have you talked to Atrix?"
"I sent her a message, but I haven't gotten a response...she knows we're coming."
"Typical quiet Atrix. That girls more of a mystery than Prila." Richard said

Farewell to My Milkyway
Issac stared out the window before him, the blinds had been drawn up for a change. Usually they sat securely shut so his computer would remain in its optimal light. It was a cold, dry Virginia winter day, a small lake of snow remained on the ground from a previous storm. He wondered if he would miss it. He wondered if he would ever call this place home again. He had spent the past four years on the west coast but Virginia was always home to him. Not that home held much of a strong calling to him. He never really got homesick while in college, but leaving earth was quite a few steps different. He glanced over his shoulder into his room, his bags were packed and his posters remained on the walls with his bed still made. He turned back towards the window, chewing on the tip of this thumb as he tried to examine his mind. The excitement had been overwhelming any self doubt so he thought it was best that he try and see if t

Business of Politics
"Mmm." Kikata's voice hummed pleasantly as she lay upon her stomach in her room, feeling a soothing warm sensation tingle over a new section of her back. Tiny steps sent tingles over her increasingly sensitive skin. "This feels so nice."
Richard smiled, holding a sort of mop like tool in his hands which he used to spread a white colored massage gel over Kikata's lower back. He didn't bother replying to her compliments, from here he would have to raise his voice to actually speak with her. His bare feet practically slid across her smooth, and now slick skin as he gathered some more of the gel in front of the mop before making his way towards the right side of her torso. He glanced over to the area that he had already completed, catching a glimpse of her still shining rear end, perhaps one of his favorite areas whenever he did this, whenever her tail moved out of the way. To some it may have been seen as a chore, bu

With a deep sigh Kikata took in all the rich smells of nature, it had a familiar feeling but the smells themselves were so alien. Her golden eyes remained shut as she could feel the bright sun caressing her skin. The shallow, warm water beneath her gently lapped at her legs, thighs and the small of her back. As the faint whirring of a small engine flowed into her ears her golden eyes finally opened. Her soft, serene smile broadened into a gleaming white grin as the small water craft slowly came to a halt by her knee.
"These things are a blast!" Richards voice called up. He sat back on his jet ski and removed his sunglasses, his right hand reaching up to brush the water out of his freshly buzzed hair.
"I believe it. You've been out there since morning." Kikata replied with a giggle. She lowered a hand into a water and twirled her finger within the shallow bank, kicking up a brown swirl of silt. "It is so nice here. What do they call this la

Waves Start to Form
Issac awoke, his hair felt more thick than usual as he ran his hands through it. His back, however, felt amazing. It was as if he was floating on a cloud, and he was unusually warm even though he had no blanket draped over him. He groaned as he arched his back, his body hardly willing to rise from slumber as his eyes finally opened. Several shafts of light shone down around him from between strange, curved pillars. He rubbed his eye as he sat up, shaking the confusion of his waking mind to gather some more logical thoughts. He placed his hand against the surface over his head, remembering now the events from last night. He stepped out from between La'ala's fingers, his eyes following her arm towards her chest and then up to her face where she looked back towards him with a slight smile.
"Morning." She said, her slight smile broadening.
"Morning." Issac replied.
She rolled onto her back, her other arm reaching towards a be
The Marine and the Nova Guard2Kikata walked across the frozen white plain, idly following a the line that led along a small square map in the upper left hand portion of her visor. She had tried to search the marines name in a data base but got too many hits to sort through them all. She sighed, her legs growing a bit tired from all of the walking. She was a bit startled at the humans reaction to her techniques, she was trained early on in her search and rescue courses about how to handle smaller creatures in these sorts of environments. If done properly the stomach is the safest place for them to remain out of the cold, and out of harms way. Her pockets, which were more like capsules, would shake violently during movement and were often filled anyway. The only safer option would be a transport vehicle, which she did not have access too.The Marine and the Nova Guard25 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She eyed the blue ice beneath her feet, hoping that the frigid climate had formed a hard enough layer to prevent her from accidentally breaking through. She glanced down at her arm,
Nova Force:Ep5 part 1The next week was more of a vacation really. As was to be expected drifting around in uncharted space, there wasn't really anything there. They spent their time naming planets and stars, occasionally dipping down into the atmosphere of an interesting planet to find it to be a lifeless husk of rock or liquid. But the thought that they might be out here staying out of trouble persisted in Kikata's mind. They had no equipment to take earth samples, nor were they authorized to actually name and identify planets. Why wouldn't they just bring them home? The more she thought about it the more it didn't seem to make sense...unless of course they knew that space station would be out there, then what else would they know? Perhaps they believed that the enemy had gone into hiding in these darkened regions? That would make sense.Nova Force:Ep5 part 15 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Nova Force:Ep7 part 4Richard glanced around the large white room, to Kikata it would have seemed to be the size of a tennis court. "This is a virtual room?" He asked, noting how is voice bounced from the walls.Nova Force:Ep7 part 45 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"A state of the art one." She said with a nod, "A few hundred years ago we developed a program that users could enter the Virtual realm while sitting in designated capsules." As she spoke she tapped away on a display panel that sat atop a tall white pillar. "Over the years we managed to improve the visual effects and what not but no matter how much we tricked the brain into thinking the virtual reality was real it still felt false." She leaned on her right leg as she thought for a moment, "What should we do first?"
"Doesn't matter to me."
She nodded, "Something peaceful at first. Don't leave the platform."
Richard watched as blue light suddenly filled the once white floors and walls. A scene started to appear like a wave around them. Tree's grew from the floor and the ceiling and walls appeared to d
Nova Force:Ep2 part 1"Okay." Kikata said leaning back into her pilots seat. It had been a long two days but the engines had finally cooled down (literally). "Ready?"Nova Force:Ep2 part 15 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Richard slid down into the cup holder, "Yeah." He called up.
Kikata slid her fingers up the display, the ship was ready. With a flick of her finger the ships quiet hum turned to a roar, the speckled view outside of the window turned to a blur and they were off. Richard gritted his teeth, not having a real chair made the trip a little more than uncomfortable as he vibrated rapidly against the hard plastic of the cup holder. Finally the ship put on the back burners and the new location slowly came into view.
"Thanks." Richard grumbled as she helped him up onto the arm rest. He eyed the planet with a frown, "Another ice ball?"
She chuckled lightly, "That's right."
"Well, as long as I don't get eaten this time around."
"Tempt me and I just might." She said with a grin.

A Fresh Start
Richard still wasn't used to it. When he closed his eyes the only thing that reminded him of home was the smells. Food, earth, air fresheners, and that strange homey smell tied to every family were nonexistent on the ship. The ship smelled like nothing. It resembled the vacuum of space outside of its hull. Everything was clean, metal or plastic. The smell of cooked meals were quickly sucked out of the air and replaced by pure clean air. It was the one odd thing that you got to miss out in space. You can dress up your ship and display a hologram over the windows and it will look and feel like home, but you could never get it to smell like home.
As Richard thought on it, blankly staring at the flashing colors of the television, he began to wonder if Earth was even home anymore. He was used to being carried or riding a shuttle when ever he had to move from one area to the next. The thought of having everything he needed within wal
Nova Force:Ep11 Part 1Richard watched Kikata's feet move around the floor from his little area beneath her bed. The past couple days have been strange for him. When he had entered Kikata's mind it felt as though he had spent weeks in there, sifting through her knowledge and leaning all of her past life. And then he found perfection. The room in Kikata's heart had opened their eyes to one another, he embraced someone with a love that he had never felt before. And in the heat of that moment, knowing that it was all just a dream, they followed though with their emotions.Nova Force:Ep11 Part 15 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
But Kikata doesn't know. She is curious as to what happened but Richard insists that it has turned to a blur in his memory. All of the events in her subconscious that might have made sense at the time were now too confusing to comprehend. But he wanted to tell her. He wanted to feel that love again. Richard had made a promise, however, that he wouldn't do anything to hurt her. Their love just did not seem to be meant to be in the real world.
Nova Force:Ep7 part 5Kikata set Richard on her shoulder and followed Prila towards her desk. "So what is so urgent?" She asked, a little disappointed to be dragged away from the Virtual Room before she was ready.Nova Force:Ep7 part 55 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"You'll see." Prila called over her shoulder in a near whisper. They rounded the corner, arriving back in the lobby where they had first met. They followed Prila behind her desk. "Alright." She whispered, looking both ways to see if the area was clear, "I was doing a little snooping around. It's a pass time of mine here." She checked her sides again and nodded, "So right. As I was saying I was snooping around, listening to conversations and transmissions that get relayed through our base and I think I picked up one that the sender intended to keep secret."
"How serious is this?" Kikata asked, folding her arms.
"It's pretty serious. Listen for yourself."
Prila selected the sound file which she had saved and played it. Through the speakers a male neko voice spoke, "I am on public transmissions so I
Nova Force:Ep6 part 1Kikata let out a long sigh of relief. There it was, the green and blue gem of Teralist. They had spent the last week lazily drifting around the uncharted sector of space. They had been given a five day leave, as far as Kikata was concerned that wasn't long enough.Nova Force:Ep6 part 15 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"So this is it huh?"
"Yes. This is home." Kikata said as a smile continued to spread wider across her lips.
"And what a damn good sight it is!" Fisc said from behind Kikata's shoulder.
They watched silently as the ship made its decent into the Teralist atmosphere. The sky had opened up into a perfectly clear day to accept them, the bright blue waters below sparkling brightly in the warm day. Richard was shocked at how massive the expanse of forest was below them, the only breaks in the green landscape being the long blue river and the equally massive body of water in the distance. They skimmed across the tall tree line until a large white structure came into view. It was the Neko home base.
The large structure looked almost l

The Hunt Begins
Who is this Atrix girl anyway?
Atrix is a Nau'Zui. That would be her definition if you were to search for her in a database. Every member of the Cho'otoo is given a ranking, but her ranking is one that has not been given for centuries. And while many claim that the ceremony that proclaims rank is nothing more than old voodoo that could not possibly hold any grasp of reality, no one would claim that Atrix is undeserving of her rank. Her rank tells us that she is the very essence of the Cho. That her abilities are so precise that even though she is small in stature, she cannot be beaten in a fair fight.
Though she is a rebel Nau'Zui. She had been unruly during her training in childhood, much of which could be attributed to her disorder. But even when she avoided training exercises and seemed distant throughout schooling, she preformed at levels that had never been witnessed by a living teacher. She often disregarded her
Nova Force:Ep1 part 2Richard bounced slightly with each step, he had only just started to get used to his high perch upon Kikatas shoulder. He looked down into the strange landscape below them, a black pillar of smoke becoming visible through the green haze.Nova Force:Ep1 part 25 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"I don't see any signs of life." Kikata said quietly, "But be on guard."
"Yeah, try not to jump though okay?" Richard laughed.
"Here." She said, lifting her hand to her shoulder, "You are safer in my hand."
Richard nodded, climbing down onto the smooth surface of her hand, he knelt down as she dropped her hand from her shoulder to waist level, slowly approaching the pillar of smoke. She stepped over one of the oversized fungi and revealed the wreckage, illuminated by a stream of light that shone through a hole torn through one of the massive mushrooms. The ship was about half the size of Kikatas, though looked as if it could have been piloted by someone of her size.
"It looks like an outdated warship." She said examining the wreckage from afar for now.
Nova Force:Ep9 part 3"What is it?" Kikata asked curiously, crawling the short distance to where Richard sat.Nova Force:Ep9 part 35 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"I uh." Richard started, tilting his head as he examined the apparently tiny female creature that pulled herself up onto his palm, "I'm not sure."
Kikata sprawled out on the mossy ground and lowered her head just over Richards shoulder, "What do you mean?" She asked, squinting to try and focus on the colorful thing in his hand.
"It's some sort of creature..."
"Oh. Well that's to be expected I guess."
"No. This is not just any sort of creature Kikata." He said, eyeing the white cloth that hung from the creature like a dress, "It has to be intelligent."
Kikata cautiously slid up her own visor, taking a few short breaths to test the air. Surprisingly the air was not as thin as she had expected. "I can hardly see it. It is just a little green lump in your hand."
"I know." Richard said. The creature seemed to not fear Richard at all. It ran its tiny hands across his metallic glove, a serene smile across
Nova Force:Ep3 Part2Richard watched somewhat helplessly as they made their way through the forest, the last couple necessary items from Fisc's ship in hand, or in Across's case the entire Nova Armor case held up on his shoulder. "Maybe I should have hung back." He mumbled, not liking the fact that he was pretty useless.Nova Force:Ep3 Part25 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Kikata shrugged, not realizing that the movement nearly toppled Richard to the ground, "You got a nice view of the scenery."
The three giants made their way back into Kikata's ship, the living quarters feeling a little cluttered with all of the extra items. Richard plopped down into his piolets seat, "I'm driven." He called back, wondering how hard it could possibly be.
"You will certainly not be driving." She retorted as her fingers ran across the display
"Aw c'mon Kikata, let the man drive!"

"Awesome." Richard said facing back towards his own display. "Now what do I do?"

"No. But it's engines will run out of power soon."
"Well...hopefully not ours." Kikata said with a smile, though she was a little nervous of what might happen if something went wrong out here. If they weren't able to make a jump it would take months to get back home. Her eyes flickered down onto her display, "Hey, um. Are you reading this?"
"Look on your proximity detector."
"The little circle on your display."
"Oh." Richards eyes searched his display for a few moments until he located it, "Yeah. What about it?"
"Do you see that little mark, not very far from our ship." Kikata said fingering the small yellow blip on her map, it was traveling along side them, "I think we might have company."
"Do you think one of the other ships jumped as well?"
"Not one of ours at least. This is just coming up as a mass, I'

"So tell us what you know." A disembodied voice called into a dimly lit, circular gray room.
Sangella glanced down to Johnny who sat on his own elevated platform below her. He caught her gaze and shrugged. "We do not know much from before we got there." She began, "I wasn't even aware of the settlements existence before Lorth approached me."
"He made no efforts to contact you before your meeting in Fath'ax?"
"None whatsoever." Johnny replied.
"He never went into detail about his dealings prior to recent events?" The voice continued to ask.
"He only ever mentioned that he held a position beneath Roko, and that he often worked with numbers for the business." Sangella said. She could hardly believe that he was even being brought to trial. Money and paper fraud seemed like such a minor offence compared to the good he did. "If I can say somethin-"
"Please, only answer the questions asked."

Nova Force:Ep9 part 4Richard followed the small alien curiously as it led him away from the ship. The green landscape seemed to stretch endlessly around them, the planet had no large mountains and hardly had any hills. The only vegetation seemed to be the thin layer of moss like grass that completely covered the ground. The tiny woman glided to the earth, glancing back towards Richard before taking hold of what looked like a very small lever. With apparently a good bit of force she pulled the lever.Nova Force:Ep9 part 45 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The ground suddenly started to morph. A square of earth rose just slightly from the surrounding area, about three feet across. The square started to split down the middle. Soon a dark, square hole sat just before him, the small green creature looking up towards Richard with that same, serine smile.
Then, like a cloud of color the hole was filled with life. What looked like hundreds of the small creatures billowed out of the opening. At first it frightened in, the sheer numbers were overwhelming. But it became a
The Marine and the Nova Guard3Richard stared at the massive screen displayed across the curved window of the cockpit. He stood rather awkwardly on the outstretched hand of Kikata. Dinner, or lunch...or maybe it was breakfast, was rather strange. He sat on the edge of a wide plate, Kikata had spooned over some of the strange meat and thick creamy substance that she assured him was a delicacy back on her home planet. In the end he could have eaten just about anything, his taste buds no longer fighting against the terrible food substitutes that he had eaten over the past three years.The Marine and the Nova Guard35 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
A face flickered onto the screen. An old mans dark gray eyes shifted to Richard, a grin turning upwards on one corner of his wrinkled lips. His hair was short and white, his ears, similar to Kikata's, were dark gray in color, longer white hair flowing from the tips and along the inner section.
"Private Bromwell?" His old voice asked through the intercom, the quality surprisingly clear.
"Yes, sir" He responded, straightening his posture.
