VFA-3

Postby Waxman » Fri Jan 02, 2015 10:46 pm

As many of you know, I created the VFA.
VFA = Valor, Freedom, Allegiance

Inside the VFA is the 3rd Squadron. The 3rd Squadron is for Enablers exclusively. Like the 2nd Squadron which is Goldwing exclusive.
The VFA provides Security, escort, patrol in force, recon, area suppression, bounty, and crusade missions.
The VFA will have both a private server which is PvE primarily and a presence in the Persistent Universe.

In our private server, we will have the New Vega system. An unaffiliated fringe system close to the Vanduul border.

New Vega is a Binary system with a G-type and a brown Dwarf.
The primary life supporting planet is New Vega, far from the Goldilocks. Also known as the Circumstellar habitable zone. A frozen and harsh habitable planet with a unique core. Near the core is a huge crevasse many times wider and deeper then the Grand Canyon of Earth.This crevasse, which digs deep into the crust of the planet leaving a thin shell over the mantle. Many pockets of ever flowing magma create pockets of High Pressure . These pockets are held low to the surface by the planet dense atmosphere. The high concentration of hydrogen, released from the melting hydrogen fields, is kept at bay by the high pressure of the magma. Oxygen was introduced into the mix from the massive tarraforming machines. Now a viable and fragile natural biodome exists in the crevasse.

Wind on New Vega is a constant presence. With the High Pressure magma heat and the Low Pressure Hydrogen constantly conflicting.
Landing on the surface is twitchy at the best of times. The high winds buffet a ship in any number of directions. Many a ship has been lost on the surface, knocked down by the winds. Massive plumes of Hydrogen reach down to the surface when the atmospheric balance is not precisely maintained. Inside these plumes, the wind speed can reach in upward of 300mph.

Communications on the surface are difficult at best. The super Dense Iron Ferrite core produces a strong magnetic field the interferes with the ULF and VLF frequencies used by most communications. Only the strongest MAE (Microwave auditory effect) transmissions can come through in the clear. The MAE communications are broadwave as emergency or GUARD frequencies. Most have no idea what these auditory clicks are, But by manipulating the duration and order of the clicks and buzzes, the sender can send a sort of Morse Code. Due to this magnetic effect, a massive space station tethered to the surface by huge magnetically shielded cables that carry communications. Relay stations are placed strategically along the length of the cable to provide boosting strength.

Transport to and from the orbital platform is achieved via the space elevator that accompanies the communications cable. Also shuttles pass frequently when the weather permits.

Along with the rely stations are stabilizing stations whose sole purpose is to provide stabilization of the space elevator.

Scattered on the surface and sometimes underground are outposts of Illegal activity. Since wireless communication is all but impossible these illegal hubs operate quite freely. From time to time VFA security find and raid these hubs but fall prey to the communications blackouts and cannot call for reinforcement or report on strengths. Street wars breakout with alarming frequency. Nine times out of Ten the unlawful residents of these hubs, who get caught in the crossfire, rise up against the VFA and overwhelm the invaders. Because of the complete lack of a legal presence, the facility quickly falls back into illegal activity when one is captured.
Rival factions also have taken up residence in some of these facilities. They make perfect forward bases and provide ample metals and Hydrogen.
A few advanced research labs have been raided by the VFA.

The two Inner most Planets who were sheared apart by stellar gravity. Make up a dense and tumultuous belt of rock and metal. This belt known as the Charybdis belt, male for a lucrative and irresistible mining spot for any looking to make a quick buck. Many minors lost there lives and or ship in the belt, as each rock is being pulled in different orbits from the opposing stars.

The third planet in the system is home to the VFA prison. The Prison houses those that are transferred from other governments and those crime was deemed to petty for a death sentence. Other governments send prisoners to the facility because it is built on a planet with no atmosphere and artificial gravity. Prisoners are implanted with restraints that can be affected by the artificial gravity generators. The landing platform is separate from the prison proper and the only transport to and from the prison is a high security shuttle.

This is still a WIP
Fellow enablers, please read and point out any flaws you read in a pm, please do not reply to this thread.

The chief export of the New Vega system Is Hydrogen in various forms.

Hydrogen as liquid fuel
Hydrogen as solid fuel
Hydrogen powder
Hydrogen Gas

Most of the Hydrogen comes from the Planet New Vega. Lesser Quantities can be harvested from the Hydrogen asteroids in the Charybdis belt. Hydrogen fuel for starships can be acquired from the Tempest Nebulae on the fringes of the system.

Native Metals and Minerals can be obtained in the Charybdis belt

Digs on New Vega (while quite perilous) have unearth some unique metals and some exquisite stones. One find, embarked upon shortly after the colonization began, uncovered a Massive radiant crystal formation that changes color depending on the surrounding atmosphere.
The formation has since been moved into the central New Vega square. It has been said that the changes in the spectrum of light passing through the crystal can be interpreted in weather forecasting.

A rampant rush of prospectors flooded into the system in 2935, when the near Oort cloud was first discovered. A false claim by Notorious pirate [name redacted] sent a false message to the Local UEE official stating that the cloud was comprised of frozen gold. Later proven untrue by The Founder of the VFA.

This is a WIP

Hydrodynamics Incorporated

The Largest corporation in the New Vega system is the Massive Hydrodynamics Incorporated.

Anything relating to Hydro (even remotely related) is the domain, and more importantly, belonging in their collective interest. They and their distanced employee's will go to any lengths to maintain their monopoly. They have even been accused of hiring Tevarin expats to perform heinous and devoid acts, including piracy and kidnapping.

Upon entering the New Vega system, you will undoubtedly run into a group or individual bearing an attachment to Hydrodynamics Incorporated in rather short order.

Hydro Inc. as coined by the locals, has established itself as the default law of the system.

Miners Delight

Known to all miners as the "Official" local chapter of the miners guild. They provide bonuses and back channel resources to miners. Also tariff free trades which are approved throughout the UEE are inspected and overseen by Miners Delight.

VFA
Valor, Freedom, Allegiance

A group of noble, strong, gallant knights.
Many are quick to call knights of the VFA goodie two shoes and pansies. The VFA puts as much stock into those comments as there is molten lava in a cheesecake.
The VFA does take a righteous stance, not a legal one. Many legals or Laws allow for many many gray areas in terms of truth. Truth is absolute.

Origins of the VFA

The VFA got it's start in late 2935 when the pirate [name redacted] lured unsuspecting prospectors into the New Vega system on false pretenses. [The pirate] sent a false resource claim to the UEE Space Exploratory Commission. When the UEESEC denounced this claim, the pirate took an anti UEE stance, stating that the claim was indeed tvalid and that the UEE denounced the claim only to reap the benefits themselves. This announcement was received by the surrounding populace as truth. Many unsuspecting miners were caught up in this ruse and eventually lost all.

The UEESEC, by denouncing the claim played right into the hands of [the pirate]. His sole objective was to bring his targets to him so he didn't waste resources. After the first few disappearances, the UEESEC sent of scout to asses the situation and report back. By the time of the scouts arrival word about the piracy going on in the New Vega system. Most of the pirates from Nearby systems were already in system and on the lookout for prey.

Needless to say, the scout was never heard from again.

The reports of more piracy and missing individuals was flooding into the UEESEC offices. Something drastic had to be done. Calls went out for volunteers to restore order in the New Vega system. All sorts of individuals from independent Soldiers of fortune to organized mercenary groups stood at the ready to answer the call. Most fled the system when they arrived and faced so much opposition, and even more abandoned the call when it was discovered that the reward did not equal the risk. Some stayed out of a sense of duty, honor, and obligation. One such unit was the newly formed VFA.

The VFA embarking from the escort carrier Proteus, and flying older hornets, avengers, retaliators and gladiators. They took on the job with almost a crusade like mentality.Nothing distracted them from their duty.

When [the pirate] launched an all out attack on the Proteus and drove it back into the heart of the system. The VFA only hardened in their resolve.

During this lull in VFA activity, a strike led by the VFAs Founding Knight, launching from a forward base. Struck a fatal blow to the pirates. Randomly, and purely by chance the VFA strike force entered a dense part of the Oort cloud and happened upon the pirates main resupply base.
Only a handful of Pirate ships were on station.

The Founding Knight sent his gladiators against the pirate dreadnaught. The dreadnaught was filling the duties of a base. It's own flight decks littered with ships undergoing repairs, was unable to launch any fighters. In a brave act the gladiators closed to point blank range and "dumbfired" their torpedoes into the decks of the dreadnaught. With the dreadnaught a smoldering wreck, the pirates cut their luck. One by one the pirates engaged their drives and fled the system. With the VFA strike force down half of their pilots regrouped and slowly headed home. A lone pirate emerged from an insystem jumppoint And started broadcasting a challenge.
The Challenge was for a one on one grudge match to the death. The challenge was accepted by the right hand of the VFA.

For a while both ships hung in the black facing each other. Then the Pirate Launched a salvo of rockets at the Right Hand and quickly maxed his throttle. The Right Hand immediately went to full throttle and dove under the rockets. The rockets suddenly exploded and the resulting em blinded the ventral targeting of the Right Hands ship. The pirate killed his own em signature and shut down all but a few of his maneuvering thrusters. The pirate silently dropped in behind of the Hand and powered up. The Pirate saw his opportunity and fired all his remaining rockets at the Hand. With grim efficiency each rocket bored into the Hands ship and utterly destroyed it. During the explosion the pirate fired up his drives and fled, not a word in victory or a comment on his return, he simply left.

In the aftermath of the battle it was tallied that over 5,000 lives were lost and hundreds of millions of credits.

The VFA remains to this day in the New Vega system as the job is not complete and vengeance remains...
