Ever wonder what happens to those poor little bastards who go MIA in space combat? Now you know.

The armory of BallisticWaffles and Arashikage
Interesting guns, if I may say so myself.

HELLHOUND: The Marauder War
"We can live with that," Kylet'oran stated. "For all we care, you can just run off to your 'verse after this - and stay there."
It was then that Kyle cut in the Comm Channel. "Look, I hate to interrupt you two, but my crew have traced the Kazon fleet to their forward base of operations on an Ex-Borg world - B75634. I'm taking a task force there. You wanna tag along? Fine. I won't stop you. If not, then guard our base. Blast anything that doesn't send an IFF code as they enter the system. General Indari out."
The hangar bays of the Hellhound Marauder opened up, and several more Incursion Drones joined the party, with a Dragon-Shifter (DS) Sangheili Gunship, three DS Venator Star Destroyers, six DS Klingon D'Tai Battleships, and two DS Kol Battleships - all equipped with Incursion Drones - and they warped away to the aforementioned system...

HELLHOUND: The Marauder War
(BW, I don't mean to sound like a meticulous b****rd, but that's "Kylet'oran," not Kyle't Oran." Understandable, but if it helps, just copy and paste the Dragonarian names.)

"Commander Jay," Kylet'oran responded, "don't forget it was you that provoked Kyle in the first place. And whatever you may think, his weapons are far from inefficient - every warship here is armed with Kadgeron Disruptors, torpedoes, and other weapons and defenses. Secondly, General Indari is not our pet - not anymore. You forced his resignation from us, and we're still trying to cope with that.
"Now, whatever your reasons for aiding us, don't think we'll trust you for it - we as well as the dragon-shifters and General Indari are neither convinced nor inclined to believe you deserve such. If you want a friendly chat, then act that way, instead of trying to intimidate us with your big ship and the monsters it holds. Granted, it is powerful, but we are neither frightened nor intimidated by it. You recall your monsters, and we'll recall ours."

As Kylet'oran and Commander Jay conversed, Kyle and his crew were busy scanning the DeMeA. Though powerful, she was not invulnerable - and neither was she immune to the Kadgeron weapons locked on her. The Kadgeron weapons would fly right through her shields, impacting on the hull and turn her armored hull into slag or debris. On top of that, every warship in this system was armed with Kadgeron weapons.
"Message from Kylet'oran," Lt. Xerrun said. "Power down weapons - they don't want to appear as a threat."
"We'll power down when they do," Kyle growled. Just give me a reason to shoot you, DeMeA - I DARE you.

HELLHOUND: The Marauder War
(BW, the DeMeA was an Imperium Battleship, right? Correct me if that's wrong.)

"Alert, new contact," the Marauder's Science officer announced, "Imperium Battleship, bearing zero-three-seven-mark-ten! Port Bow!"
"General, I think it's the DeMeA!" The Tactical officer added.
I'm not surprised, Kyle thought. Those on the DeMeA are no better than the Kazon, despite their helping me identify the Kazon as the dragon-shifters' faceless marauder. No matter how much death and destruction they cause, still they thirst for more.
"Orders, General?" Tactical asked.
"Ignore them - for now," Kyle said. "But keep the Kadgeron weapons charged and ready. Let's finish these Kazon and perhaps find out just what exactly the DeMeA wants."
"If I may, sir," Kyle's XO stated, "The DeMeA is likely here to gather intel on the Kazon."
"I know," Kyle replied. "I was counting on it. The Kazon already know how to track the DeMeA - and their desire for technology means that they will stop at nothing to capture or destroy the DeMeA."
"Milord," asked the Klingon Security officer, "Can the Kazon stop the DeMeA?"
"Of course not," Kyle responded calmly. "When they realize they cannot stop Commander Jay and the DeMeA, they will try to buy a cease-fire or an alliance with them - and if the DeMeA takes it, we shall blow them out of the stars."
"Sir," Tactical reported, "The enemy is retreating. I have the translight vectors of their destination."
"Good," Kyle responded. "Now we can find out why the DeMeA is here. Keep shields up and weapons locked on the DeMeA's main reactor - if they so much as twitch in our direction, blast the f***ers to Mars. Comms, get a line to the DeMeA - demand they state their intent."

HELLHOUND: The Marauder War
As the dragon-shifter fleet engaged the Kazon, the Retribution's Thunder and the Hellhound Marauder were at the forefront of the fleet. The Hellhound Marauder was tearing into the Kazon's remaining Imperator Star Destroyer, while the Retribution's Thunder was firing weapons into a Kazon-Mandalorian Kedalbe-class Battleship.
"Father," Keesha said, "We're getting a transmission from the DeMeA - at Romulus."
"Chances are, Balsa destroyed it," San commented.
"Don't worry," Keesha assured her mother, "Most of the Romulan leaders - including their Chief Military Advisers, Fleet Admirals, most of the senators, and the soon-to-be-new-Praetor - had gotten out well before we talked to my Tal'Shiar friend. They're in another 'verse."
"What does the DeMeA want?" Kylet'oran asked.
"Beats me," Keesha admitted. The Thunder shuddered as an Ion pulse hit. Voro returned fire, sending three Kadgeron plasma torpedoes and a disruptor volley into the Kedalbe. The Kazon-controlled Mandalorian warship shuddered, listed to port, and blew up.
"Send a coded message to the DeMeA," Kylet'oran stated, "we cannot and will not aid them in whatever they're--"
"Hang on," Keesha interrupted. "I'm reading... what's left of a Kazon scoutship in that region. I think the Kazon know of the DeMeA's 'purge' of Romulus."
"Are the Kazon making any indications to form an alliance with them?" San inquired.
"Hell no," M'raaj-Dar answered. "In fact, from what I've been able to piece together, they want to board and take over the DeMeA."
There was a pause before everyone on the bridge said in unison, "Typical."
"Send a message to the DeMeA," Kylet'oran commanded, "We are currently engaged by hostiles, and we cannot spare whatever they want us to give at this time - intel or otherwise."
"Message away," Keesha reported.
"Alert," Voro piped up, "We have a new hostile!"

* * *

"General," one of Kyle's subordinates piped up, "New contact - reading one Lucrehulk Battleship and two Liberty-class Calamari Cruisers! They're dropping out of light speed!"
"Let the Incursion Venator Star Destroyers finish the Kazon Star Destroyer - target the Lucrehulk, ready on the Bio-Pulse beam emitters," Kyle commanded.
The Kazon Lucrehulk - the massive battleship originally belonging to the Trade Federation - was the first out of light speed, flanked by two Mon Calamari Liberty-class Star Cruisers.
The Kazon sure are industrious, Kyle thought. Especially when it came to stealing everything that wasn't nailed down. Several turbolaser pulses splashed across the Hellhound Marauder's shields. The warship fired it's two bio-pulse beam emitters, tearing a massive chunk out of the central sphere of the Lucrehulk. The Marauder fired it's Kadgeron Beam Cannons next, which hit a critical system, and the resulting explosion blew the Lucrehulk apart.

Pah - it's fine, tovarishch. Want me to custom-make you a gun? Just tell me what you'd like to see, and I'll try to piece it together.

HELLHOUND: The Marauder War
If the crew of the Retribution's Thunder knew that the DeMeA was contacting them, they made no indication in the face of the Kazon Assault.
"Alert," Keesha announced, "Kazon fleet exiting translight speeds in twenty seconds!"
"Voro," Kylet'oran asked, "Are weapons ready?"
"Weapons are charged and ready," Voro affirmed.
Just as Keesha predicted, the fleet of Kazon ships dropped out of warp.
"Orders from General Kyle," M'raaj-Dar said, "Engage and destroy."
"Voro, target the starboard Imperator Star Destroyer, fire MAC cannons at will!" Kylet'oran ordered.
"Target acquired," Voro announced, "Firing MAC cannons!"
The four forward MAC guns flashed, one by one, sending slugs racing for the Star Destroyer.
"Dar-Ma, engage the engines!" San commanded. "Ahead full!"
"Ahead full, aye!" Dar-Ma responded.

* * *

The Hellhound Marauder let the rest of the fleet that had MAC cannons, Mass Drivers, and Railguns fire before it fired it's own Kadgeron Mass Driver. The volley lit up the shields of the enemy vessels, but none were destroyed. The Kadgeron Mass Driver slug fired by the Hellhound Marauder impacted on a Kazon Predator, but did not destroy it.
"Helm," Kyle ordered. "Engage engines and accelerate to attack speed; Tactical, target the port-side Star Destroyer, fire weapons when we're in range."

HELLHOUND: The Marauder War
(I'm assuming this RP is green and go - RP Mods, notify me otherwise.)

The Hellhound Marauder sat in orbit over the nameless planet. It had been dubbed "Marauder Prime" by the Dragon-Shifters - and it served as their core base of operations. Base had already been established down planetside, and the production facilities there already working overtime to manufacture the materials needed for the Dragon-Shifter Fleets - Holographic Macro-Diodes, Incursion Drones, weapons, armor, everything. It was war.
Apart from the many dragon-shifter-controlled warships in orbit and the incursion drones that had been turned into various warships from across the 'verses, the only other ship that was also in orbit was the Sangheili Gunship Retribution's Thunder. It constantly ran with shields up and weapons hot. There had been six Kazon attacks so far, each one beaten back. Orbital stations and defenses were already in construction - once completed, there would be a fleet of incursion drones stationed here while the dragon-shifter fleets swept out across this 'verse to systematically destroy the Kazon Alliance - the slayers of kin and the faceless marauder that had hounded dragon-shifters across the galaxy.
Activity on the Hellhound Marauder was in full swing. On the bridge, the Commander of the HM - General Kyle Indari - sipped his tea as his subordinates ran hither and yon. Constant sensor sweeps of the surrounding sectors were being made, diagnostics and repairs being effected wherever possible, and Marines kept ready to deploy for boarding action at a moment's notice.
"General," Lt. Cmdr. K'torr announced, "We have inbound Kazon warp signatures - reading six Kazon Raiders, four Kazon Predators, five Kazon Gozanti Cruisers, three Kazon Hyperion Battlecruisers, and two Kazon Imperator Star Destroyers!"
"Alert all ships," Kyle said calmly. "All hands, Red Alert!"
The Alert sirens blared, the lights in the bridge darkened, and the Hellhound Marauder's primary and secondary shields crackled to life - the primary being Void shields, and secondary being Kadgeron shields. The weapons went online next, and the shields of multiple warships in orbit crackling to life.
This was war, and the dragon-shifters stood ready to fight...

Vatn wenn. And, just so there is no confusion, here is an image of the Hellhound Marauder. The weapons layout is labelled:

Meh - I am anxious to get this RP moving. BW, assuming you still wish to participate, I will start this war engine Sat. 9/17 at about 12:30.
