"Colonel Yon-Rogg Sentry 459 is being followed." Lt. Mara reported from her long range-scanner station.
"What is following the Sentry?" the Kree warship commander asked.
"I am receiving a data from Sentry 459 that answers that very query. The vessel is built by the natives of this system. It is made entirely of native materials. It is the first of its kind with several others in various stages if constructions. It's an exploration vessel."
"We can detect a very powerful matter/anti-matter energy signature. Its output is obfuscating other energy footprints. Data gathered by the Sentry indicate the vessel 'Solara I' has an advanced energy force field. Propulsion is based on a Graviton propulsion template. There are several weapon blisters of various energy signatures. Ion, Plasma and Gravity energy projectors. Missile pods of several sizes. They even have several low energy ballistic weapon blisters on every surface."
"Threat assessment to this ship?" Yon-Rogg waved his hand to encompse the entire ship the 'Kree-Lar'.
"We shall see. Captain Mar-Vell report to the bridge."
'We shall see what kind of threat they represent to the Kree Empire?' Colonel Yon-Rogg thought as he sent his rival for the affections of a certain female officer in medical. He had been throwing his rival in harms way at every opportunity that came up. If he was lucky the natives would solve his problem and give him an excuse to attack this system for the greater glory of the Kree empire. The only problem so far was the Captain's luck; which had carried him through every threat he could throw his way.
"Sentry 459 has increased speed and the Solara I is keeping pace."
"Have they attacked the Sentry?"
"No. They have not. They have attempted to communicate with Sentry 459, but the Sentry is following protocol, and will not respond."
"Approximately one cycle."
Yon-Rogg kept watch over the chase and wondered why they had not attacked yet. He knew that they had repelled an invasion attempt and had this been a Kree system the local forces would have destroyed the intruders by this time. Not try to communicate with it. 'Pathetic. They show their weakness early.'
"Reporting as ordered sir." Captain Mar-Vell flew into the bridge as fast as be could. He knew of his rival's dirty tricks and did whatever he could to counter them.
"Deploy your unit. Prepare for boarding."
"Against whom?" Captain Mar-Vell was surprised by this announcement. Last he mission update he had; indicated that this was a recon mission. He wondered what changed.
"Lt. Mara please display the target."
"Yes sir." Lt. Mara redirected the information stream to the main holo display unit.
"The Solara I is this system's lone warship. It is pursuing Sentry 459 in an attempt to prevent it from completing its mission. You will capture the vessel as soon as the fighter squadron disables its engines."
"All that firepower for one lone backwater space vessel?"
"You have your orders Captain. Carry them out." Yon-Rogg snarled.
"Yes sir." Mar-Vell saluted the murderous scum and left to get his men ready. He would do his best to minimize casualties on both sides.
"Riley get your men ready for launch. Bobbi you and the kids are backing them up. These guys are looking for a fight; we might as well give them a proper bloody nose. Riley please follow this intercept vector when you head out. Keep the fighter as far back as possible. Bobbi, Tony JARVIS and Jackie will be joining you. Clint Ship Gunnery’s yours. Natasha, Bruce, Peter and Julie go topside and stop anything that gets through. Carol stay where you're at. Faith you and the slayers take care of whatever makes it inside. Good luck everyone.
Twelve Mark VII launched first and went after the fighters. They followed Xander's intercept vector information.
When Xander saw the boarding party veer directly towards the ship he released Bobbi and the Kids. He noticed that another fighter squadron had launched from the Kree warship, "Tony you might want to grab a few Iron Man androids and go after the second fighter squadron. If you can give Riley a hand when you pass by."
"Roger dodger Buck Rogers. Somehow that would have been a better line with Steve. Remind me to use it on him next time."
"I'll remind my JARVIS to remind your JARVIS." Xander snickered.
"Not sure yet. I'll let you know when it's over."
"You do that." Xander switched to Faith's channel, "honey..."
"I may have to send you and the girls to back up the kids. There's a lot of these guys and I so want prisoners."
"Kay. Consider it your birthday present."
"Thanks hon. you’re the best."
"I know. Now shut up and let me work."
"Sorry. Carry on. I won't say a peep. I..."
"It's my fault. I should kicked the silly out of you a long time ago. It's a good thing I have someone to vent on, otherwise..."
"Love you too honey-bunch. Now go grrrr some alien butt."
"Yeah, yeah, yeah. Shut up already."
"Mmmmmm?" Xander switched channels to Riley's boys and girls. 'He he he he. Do I know how to wind her up or what?'
Xander sat in the Captain's chair and followed every unit in play. Clint was trying to do the same with the ships sensors.
"Does it look like the big boy is trying to be clever to you or what?"
Clint studied the displays a little longer and a pattern emerged, "Good call. They're trying to overwhelm us, and when we're committed it looks like they're going for a knockout punch."
"That's what I thought, but it never hurts to get a second opinion."
"If you have the luxury, it sure as hell doesn’t." Clint agreed.
"Kree units you are trespassing. Declare your intentions." Xander smirked after he said that.
"You think playing with them a good thing?" Clint asked.
"Can't hurt. It might make them overconfident, and even underestimate us. My money's on under."
Clint studied the space dance a bit before replying, he saw the big boy put on a burst of speed. "Looks like under. Whoever is in charge can't wait to join the party."
"I love an overconfident big bad." Xander smiled.
"Go Riley. His guys are really chewing those fighters up. I'm glad Tony and the design committee changed the weapons load on the Mark VII-b space power armor. Those bad puppies pack a wallop." Xander cheered.
Clint agreed. The Armor was more maneuverable and with the additional energy shields and gravity canon it made for a much more powerful, if bulkier personal combat suit.
"JACOSTA could you please increase power to the shields."
"Thank you. JARVIS how much can we exceed the safe limits on the main gun?"
"I would estimate forty two percent any more and it will shake itself apart."
"How often could we shoot at that setting?"
“How long before it’s safe to fire again at that setting?”
“Thanks. You know what Clint?”
“I think the big boy is ignoring me on purpose. In my book that makes for a hostile force. Agreed?”
“Agreed.” Clint got a missile lock and was close to getting close to lining up a perfect shot with the big gravity gun. “What are you going to do?”
Xander drummed his fingers for a couple of seconds and then pressed a button to contact the Kree one final time.
