Warrior of Peace
PU Raven class star fighter, The Red Falcon, six a.m. Earth date, January 27, 2343. Mission, patrolling the Zorgon Earth border.
Jack was sleeping in a family class quarter, with his wife and daughter. He always knew that keeping his daughter Liana on a battle cruiser was dangerous for her, but he didn't want her growing up like him... without a father. He wanted her to be happy, and to become a Peace Unity officer like him and his wife.
He felt a slight electric impulse going down his spine, which instantly woke him up. He pressed the small button on a coffee table beside his bed and the tingling stopped. He put his feet on the side of his bed and stopped for a second to think which tie he's going to wear today. ''Nah, it's not important.'' he thought to himself. When he looked up towards the clock he saw it's 6:03 o'clock.
He got up and stretched. He yawned, and then looked toward the closet. He put on the standard issue uniform, and proudly clipped on a badge that said Lt. Jack Peeckeeper. He quietly got out of the room, trying not to wake up his wife. But too late. ''Where ya goin' Jack? It's only ...'' she looked up at the clock, and continued ''a quarter past six. it's a little early don't you think?''. Jack sighed, ''The Admiral wants me in the briefing room by half past six... he said it's something important.''. His wife narrowed her eyes, ''Every time something is 'important' you end up going on two week missions. Just be careful.''. ''Don't worry. You just take care of Liana. I'll be back in an hour.''. ''You better be.'' she smiled. He smiled, and with no words excited the room. His wife fell back in her bed and sighed.
After passing through some unusually empty corridors he reached a transporter pod tunnel. It was huge, yet very clean. He approached a nearby panel, which showed sixty and more buttons. The number of decks the mighty Red Falcon had. He pressed level 13, by the button, blue letters said BRIDGE. A pod came in incredible speed from the other end of the tunnel. The doors automatically opened and he entered. He sat down at one of the seats and then a female voice said, ''Which section?''. He answered, ''Section B.''.
With the speed of sound he reached section B. ''God damn it, I hope it ain't another one of those inteplanetary missions'' he thought to himself while getting out of the pod. He looked around only to see a maintenance worker repairing a broken panel.
''Where is everyone?'' he asked the worker. ''I've heard there's been a little fuss on the bridge. Everyone's there.''. ''Hmm... Alright Jack, thanks.''. Jack made his way towards the bridge more worried by each step he took. ''What's happened to all the people?'' he asked himself.
He reached the door on which it said BRIDGE. He tipped in the entrance code and the doors opened. The bridge was swarming with people too busy to see the door opening. ''What the hell?'' he said. The admiral heard him and and said, ''Oh, hi Jack. Come here.''. He was confused, ''Yes, sir... What's the problem?''.
