Battle of The Glaive

While the Battle of Cait raged on, the Kzinti sent a small fleet to destroy Starbase J-23, commonly known as The Glaive, the centre of operations of all Western military campaigns. The outrageous attack was brilliantly executed and The Glaive suffered heavy damages. Although Starfleet managed to win the battle, it was another Phyrric victory, further contributing to the major losses of the early stage of the Federation-Kzinti War...

In moments like this, you wonder why Mankind simply didn't nuke Kzinhome after the first attack. It would have been the sensible approach...

Stupid Feds didn't let us. Were it for the United Earth, Kzinhome (and probably Qo'nos and Vulcan) would be smoked.

Vulcan? What they did now?

Always hindered Earth due to thinly veiled fear and hypocricy. I have to say, I shed no tear when the f**kers burned in XI...

I did. They spawned Surak, Spock and the Romulans, after all...
davemetlesits's avatar
I like Spock. Surak... I never liked pacifists. The Romulans... they're badass :D
lordMartiya's avatar
Surak too. It takes a lot of badassery to tell an entire planet of people more ferocious than drunken Klingons to stop wars before you self-destruct...

But his teachings were corrupted to become a state/planetary ideology of superiority, xenophobia and fear of progress. Kinda like Christianity...

This ship on the right looks interesting. New class?

Kzinti have so good Starships?
davemetlesits's avatar
Yupp. They're strong, fast and manouverable. Not as powerful as a Connie, but out-manouvers her easily. And they always come in packs. They're a nightmare in the West...
DarthSparrow's avatar
Okay. So UFP need more Connie's and Miranda.

Thank you very much!

The Polaris is already over Cait, fighting against the main Kzinti invasion fleet. Another ill-concieved campaign of Starfleet Command, they lost some three Con nies in the fight...

You're welcome :)

Damn, that's 3 Constitutions gone, let's hope Starfleet doesn't lose anymore :XD:
