Alliance ships dropped out of hyperspace, they raised their shields, and prepared for combat. The full might of the new and improved Alliance was here, ready to strike. Before them was the planet of Corusent. It was heavily fortified with defensive turbo laser satellites, and proton torpedo satellites. The planet was also defended by a rather large detachment of Imperial vessels.
Within the Imperial Palace alerts sounded. The Imperials had detected the Rebel fleet. Imperial ships began to form up into an attack formation. Onboard his newly improved Mon Calmri cruiser Admiral Akbar ordered the deployment of fighters. The fighters deployed but none of them moved toward the imperials.
Onboard the Executor, Darth Vader looked at the Rebel fleet. "What is it they are waiting for?" The Sith lord murmured quietly. Quickly deciding that it was of little consequence, Vader made his choice. "Launch all Tie fighters, and fire at will."
The battle for Corusent began. Turbo laser's flashed through space. Torpedoes sped at the Rebels. Suddenly Vader gasped as he felt a great danger in the force. "No!" Vader cried out suddenly, but it was too late. As the weapons fire from the Imperials impacted the Rebel ships Terran ships emerged within the orbit of Corusent and began firing immediately. The Rebels also opened up with their new more powerful weaponry, blasting the Imperial ships from both sides.
Onboard an O'Neil class battleship a human Admiral commanded the Terran Arrowhead. Terran fleets are divided into different groups that comprise the fleet. The Arrowhead was made up of the heavy ships such as battleships and Carriers. The Shaft section (of which there were many lewd jokes within the fleets) contained the Cruisers and Destroyers, useful for smaller operations, and more versatile, but without the heavy weaponry of the Arrowhead. The Feathers section was not always present. It was the ship group used for transporting troops, supplies, and lesser craft. It was comprised of City ships, Jump Cruisers, Jumpers, and occasionally Al'kesh and Darts from the local SGC.
Only the Arrowhead section of the Battle Fleet was engaged around Corusent. The Shaft section was engaged in taking out most of the Imperial combat ships throughout the galaxy.
The Battle for Corusent lasted five hours. In that time the Terrans punched a hole in the defenses, and blasted the planetary shields apart. The Rebel vessels on the other hand had used their new vessels to great effect, wiping out most of the defending fleet. A massive blast of ZPE from one of the Terran Battleships took out the Executor, unfortunately Vader left the vessel in an escape pod, programmed to take him to the Imperial palace. As the Imperial defenses died down in orbit, the Rebels began landing combat vehicles on the planet, while the Terrans beamed down thousands of troops.
During the battle, realizing that Corusent was lost, the Emperor fled the planet with Vader and his personal guard. He took with him valuable data that he believed was essential to running the Empire, and then he activated the Palace self destruct. The blast wave from one hundred photon torpedoes detonating simultaneously leveled a good five square blocks of city skyline. More importantly it destroyed all imperial records on the planet, leaving the Rebels with no way to even know where all the planets were, let alone run them all. Or so Palpitine believed.
The Planet of Corusent was taken by a combination of Terran and Alliance ships and troops. Mon Motha landed on Corusent only three days later and declared a new age of civilization and peace. The New Republic was born.
The New Republic was a protectorate of the Terran Republic. The Terrans protected the New Republic from their enemies, so long as Terran businesses were allowed in the Galaxy with tax exemptions on extragalactic imports.
More Terran ships flew into the Corsa Galaxy, and began forcing the remaining forces of the empire into either surrendering to the Republic or fleeing from the Terrans powerful weapons that seemed to strike through shields, hulls, and bulkheads to destroy ships.
They also helped the New Republic set up new factories for producing consumer goods, and of course providing jobs for those who were left without work because of the collapse of the Empire. In fact thanks to Terran assistance there were soon more jobs open then unemployed on individual planets. This caused a new industry of ferrying labor from planets with excess unemployment, to planets requiring new workers for the new industries.
The New Republic was rather popular even amongst the more criminal elements of the Galaxy, simply because they were bringing in new items that could be bought and sold on the black market. The lack of unemployment made the people of the Corsa galaxy quite happy, and the New Republic was compared to the Empire in a very positive light. The New Republic had brought freedom, justice, order, economic security, and peace (mostly) to the Galaxy at long last, and the people loved it.
As the shattered Empire reeled under the loss of most of their ships, their Emperor, and their capital, most Imperial forces surrendered to the New Republic.
Darth Sidious retreated into the shadows of the galaxy, hiding on a planet that had surrendered voluntarily on his orders. He would have his vengeance on the Terrans. He would reclaim his Galaxy, but why stop there? There was a whole multi galactic Republic out there, just waiting for him to seize it.
I know there are quite a few people who will think this is going to fast, and that I've glossed over some major points. There are also some of you who have asked for more dialogue. I hope I can deliver, but I am having trouble finishing the next chapter. Any ideas you want to see please tell me, you may just find them in the next few scenes.
As I said a few chapters ago, this is not a Tech of Tech story, but rather a story of the Terrans and Earth trying to put the Corsa galaxy back together with the Sith (not just Sidous hint) trying to use this new quasi government of the Galaxy. I hope you like it, and please review, even if it's just a simple Good Job, or Terrible Story, every review is read, and most inspire thought on how to improve.
