United States Of Arcturus
IN GOD WE TRUST
“Reactors at peak efficiency” Sounds continued to be emitted from the control room below him as the leadership of the United states stood looking out the large video panels that showed the target in sight. “Targeting array information uplink established” Admiral Jones stood next to President Cuthos as they studied the data-pad “The expected effects on a world with atmosphere are amplified at least 20 fold.” James nodded slowly as the rest of the group comprising of different congressmen and military officers looked back to the viewing monitors
“Initiate power coupling sequence.”
The lights throughout the station began to dim as everyone began to grow silent.
The Fire Control Officer continued running down his checklist.
“EXS Primed, power conduits green.”
“Initiate loading sequence.”
Deep inside the massive station yellow lights flicked as a large magnetic lift slowly began lowering a 100 ton itoron-dakite projectile into the chamber a laser quickly scanned the outside in a final check as the breech sealed and air was evacuated from the loop.
“Beginning projectile runup.”
The floor beneath President Cuthos began to rumble deeply as the massive slug begin to go around its electro magnetic loop carefully guided along as it made its way around the 300km loop, first once then faster and faster.
“Beginning final target solutions check.”
Even so far below them James could hear the sound as the projectile traveled in its loop, looking up to the monitor he watched at its velocity increased .10C then .20C, Looking out at the planet below it was covered in rock, ice and dirt. He looked back as it slowly crept up .70C .90C.
“Standby for firing.”
Everyone in the room held their breath as the velocity display finally hit .99C
As the Projectile went around the loop for a final time the magnetic fields changed and instead of being guided around the loop once more the itoron slug travelling at 99% of lightspeed flew out of the station.
The flash as the projectile hit the planet with the force of a 45959954 megatons momentarily reset the cameras, there was an audible gasp in the room as the video feed returned. The entire side of the planet was stripped from its blue icy surface as truly massive crater could be seen at the point of impact. Rock debris and ice could be seen travelling away from the point of impact at ludicrous speeds, the ‘planet’ if it could be called one anymore was a shattered cracked cratered ruin.
Several battleships, cruisers and a carrier disembarked from the stations well protected docking bays as they began to perform scans of the system.
“Take us home”
President James said calmly
Admiral Jones nodded “Of course Mr President” The admiral stepped towards the control room as the ships reactors once again began spewing out power to the FTL and the station warped away from the test site quickly as it had come. Leaving an eerie scene behind.
