Chapter 7-Battlestations!


Ray gave the command for right full rudder. The Seastar swerved sharply as Ray gave another command to dive. Then he picked up the mike and an pressed the button. At the same time, Cheif Archer pressed the red alarm button

"Battlesstations! Battlestations! We are under attack! This is not a drill! I repeat! This is not a drill!" Ray exclaimed.

The six objects slowed way down. Then they spilt up and started circling the submarine.

Two turrets, both fore and aft, rose from the Seastar's hull. Doors opened in the middle of both sides of the hull and two more turrets emerged.The laser weapons in the turrets were sonar controlled. They locked on to their targets.

The hulls were made of a heavy titanium alloy It was all but impervious to earthly weapons. But Ray and Mike and the Chief knew these objects were not of earthly origin.

The submarine continued to dive steeply.  By now, the six objects were just keeping pace with it.


Dracos' guards blasted the locks on the gate leading to The Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany.

This was the main castle of three that mad King Ludwig constructed centuries ago. His insanity forced him to build them through very heavy taxation of his subjects. He lived Bavaria until his untimely death, which has always been shrouded in mystery.

Dracos walked up the magnificent stairway. He viewed all of the wildly ornate decorations, furniture, and statues. He stopped to read a wrtitten piece hanging on the wall about King Ludwig.

After that he commanded the guards to go ahead of him.

They reached the fourth level, whereupon they discovered the King's bedroom. They were shocked at it's ornate beauty.

Dracos told the detachment commander to contact Kronos and have all his possesions sent down. This was to be his new home, for the time being or from now on as he decided.

He stepped out onto the balcony and took in the beauty of The Black Forest which surrounded the palace.

He would send a number of guards out tomorrow to find some female companionship for him.


The alien strike force commander gave the order to fire upon the Seastar. Energy beams slammed into it's hull, from all six craft.

The submarine pitched wildly, but the hull withstood the attack. Ray gave the order to return fire. The laser cannons zeroed in on their targets and blasted them to pieces.

The alien commander was in shock. He could not believe this primitive craft withstood their attack.

The Seastar fired again and brought down another craft, but by this time the commander had swung his craft around to the back of the submarine and fired at it's engines.

The engines expolded, and water started rushing in . Ray gave the command to seal off the engine room and lower the auxillary engines, which dropped down like pods. Before the last craft could fire again, the rear laser cannon destroyed it.

Ray got on the mike and asked for a damage report.

In the meatime, Kronos had been monitoring the conflict. He ordered six more attack craft , much larger than the first ones, to attack and finish the Seastar
