Chapter 4-The Plan

 

Mike jumped out the window and gave chase into the night. He was bound and determined not to lose The Scorpion this time.

At the same time, the SEAL task force commander radioed to all to commence with the attack. Twenty or so raised out of the water while quickly uncovering their weapons. They laid down a suppresive fire with heavy machineguns while about a dozen more rose and fired smoke grenades into the island jungle.

With their heat sensing goggles, they knew just exactly where to aim. After the smoke grenades had hit  and so much smoke had covered the enemy's field of fire, the rest of the force rose and charged onto the beach, guns blazing and grenades flying. Some, but not many went down.

The small team that had gone into the building also joined the fray, except for the task force commander who was trying to revive the life of the British secret agent.

It was not long before most of the enemy were down ; a lot of them dead, some wounded, and some surrendering.

The USS Chester W Nimitz was some 3 miles offshore. Three Sea King helicopters were already en route to the island to take prisoners.

Mike repeatedly fired at The Scorpion, but he kept zig zagging and was hard to hit. He turned and fired his weapon, but Mike saw with his goggles the action developing and barely hit the ground before the bullets flew over head.

The Scorpion ran to a cliff that was not very high and jumped off. He then ran into a cove and jumped on a hidden speed boat. He put it into full throttle just as Mike jumped off the cliff and followed the same path. The Scorpion raised his weapon again but discovered he was out of ammuniton. He threw the weapon at Mike who was barely able to leap on to the back of the boat. In doing so, he lost his weapon.

The Scorpion floored it and then turned around. Mike was still trying to get his balance. The terrorist drew his knife and jumped on him. They tumbled out into the water. Mike then found himself underwater struggling with the vicious killer.

The Scorpion surfaced and at the same time shoved Mikes head back underwater. He raised his knife to stab Mike in the face, but suddenly machinegun fire rang out and the water was soaked with blood.  Mike's advesary started towards the bottom, his body lifeless. Mike surfaced and looked up into the bright spotlight of a Sea King helicopter, and got a wave from a figure that had a machinegun.

Dracos and his pirate leaders all watched the screen as they saw the first attack on the US Navy fleet.

"My lord, the inhabitants of this planet have ancient technology. They can easily be defeated," the leader of the attack said.

"We do not want to kill all of them," Dracos replied. "We want to enslave them to keep everything running."

Kronos, the second in command, leveled his gaze at Dracos. "My lord," he began," I have a plan. We stategically position all of our ships over the main populated areas and their defense installations. Our power fields can knock out their electricity. That is what they operate on. Without it, they are completely helpless, for the most part. There may be a few leftover pockets of resistance, but they can easily be dealt with."

Dracos raised his brow.
