From: CAPT Varley
Subj: Operation Momentum
Captains of the Empire, our first engagement was a stupendous success! From myself and from Admiral Perim, congratulations. Do not rest. Do not relax. Our next conquest shall be even greater.
This pitiful Azed Confederacy is limited in their forces, we estimate our battle group outnumbers their entire fleet. To extend this advantage, we will strike at their primary shipyard facility in the Kacam system. It will not be so easy as our extermination of the Itrin system, for the aliens have rallied forces to defend this key installation. Our primary goal will be to eliminate all threats in the system. Depending on our success, a secondary objective is the examination of the shipyard after the battle, however, it is more important that we remove it from the Confederacy’s hand. Victory will depend on your ship, your crew, and your ability to do what I say.
Do not underestimate the prowess of these aliens. They will fall, but not without a fight. Our telemammoth beam generators will be instrumental in our victory. Once their primary means of repleneshing their vessels is destroyed, the Confederacy will be living on borrowed time.
Long live the Empire!
Lady Lauren Varley,
Duchess of Montréal,
Captain of the I.S.S. Saratoga, 38th fleet
