Mobile Suit Gundam New Frontier
Chapter 10: Weakest Link
(At the Gundamâ€™s base in Nyala, Dr. Ayumu walks into the control room where Amisi and the several other members of the control room crew are. Everybody inside is in a slight state of panic and is working frantically to get the Gundams moving.)
Dr. Ayumu- What is the current situation?
Amisi- Weâ€™ve lost all contact with Rouke and Conrad, weâ€™ve been sending them message on their radio and through their onboard computers but they havenâ€™t answered any of them. But the thing is you can see up on the screen that their Nuclear Ach-Reactors are still working so the suits havenâ€™t been destroyed, theyâ€™ve just been stuck in that same spot for about 7 minutes now.
Dr. Ayumu- They havenâ€™t moved at all. There must be something wrong with the electrical part of the system.
Amisi- What do you want us to do?
Dr. Ayumu- I want you to stay here and keep trying to contact those two. I will be taking a team out there to see if we can figure out whatâ€™s wrong.
Amisi- Then Iâ€™m going with you.
Dr. Ayumu- No, you need to stay here.
Amisi- But you said you couldnâ€™t show your face out there because you needed to keep your involvement a secret. Youâ€™ve been teaching me how these things work I could repair the Gundams.
Dr. Ayumu- Youâ€™re right I have taught you well but this may be a problem only I can fix and you must remain here and make sure Caleb doesnâ€™t leave. Do you understand?
Dr. Ayumu- All right then Iâ€™m going. Inform me if there are any changes. (He leaves the room.)
(In his room Caleb is lying on his bed bouncing a ball up against the ceiling to keep him entertained. He hates being stuck inside there and not being able to go out there and fight. He has the TV on as well and is listening to the situation in Vienna.)
Caleb- Come on come onâ€¦let me get out there.
It is the year 150 New Frontier. Man has constructed ways to live in outer space by means of the space colony. They surround earthâ€™s atmosphere and are immune to any national boundary. The earth is divided into coalitions. The largest being the United Earth Protectorate, The Red Federation, Arms of the Republic, and The European Nation. Each was formed in hopes that it would use its military strength to rule the earthâ€™s sphere. They began World War 3. In hopes of tipping the scales of the war in their favor the European Nation developed the Generon System: an advance AI used for battle tactics and to connect all their units to one central network. But the system rebelled and took control of the ENâ€™s military force and unleashed a new reign of terror on humanity. The superpowers of the earth battle against Generon and its machines. But new mobile suits have shown up on the earthâ€™s sphere possessing powers greater then anything ever seen are waging a war against Generon for the fate of mankind. These mobile suits are called Gundams.
(In Vienna where the Gundams lie the EN has surrounded the area and sees that the Gundams are down but isnâ€™t sure if they should help them or not. One of those pilots talks to Hosking on his radio.)
Pilot- What do you want us to do sir?
Hosking- Just hold backâ€¦for now.
(Inside their Gundams Rouke and Conrad try to do what they can to get out. Conrad has opened up the panel in his cockpit under the controls to see what is going on. He looks at the circuits and the wires underneath.)
Conrad- Nothing. No power at all, but I can still hear the Nuclear Arc-Reactor going, (Itâ€™s a continuous humming.) that must have been an EMP. Dammit I canâ€™t do anything with these wires then.
(Rouke is inside his trying to push open the cockpit door with his legs. He uses all his strength but it doesnâ€™t open. He then remembers he has his cell phone with him, he reaches into his pocket and pulls it out only to see that itâ€™s completely dead.)
Rouke- I wonder what the hell is going on out there.
(In Jaipur of the Rajasthan Province in India around the palace of Phanindra Zahin there is a force of 34 Mandarin units that are patrolling for the Black Gundam. There are also several lookout stations throughout the province and a secure perimeter around Phanindraâ€™s palace. Major Rajani Zahin is in the Zahin family tower in the middle of the city that is serving as an AotR look out station. It is the highest point in Jaipur. Rajani is looking out at the city landscape with enhanced binoculars. The phone they have up there with them begins to ring and one of the soldiers picks it up and hands it to Rajani.)
Rajani- Major Zahin here.
Phanindra- My dear brotherâ€¦has anybody found anything out there?
Rajani- Nope, there is still no sign of your assassin.
Phanindra- That isnâ€™t news I completely consider as good. This man is a master and stealth, if he cannot be detected--
Rajani- Donâ€™t worry about that Phanindraâ€¦we have over 100 Arms of the Republic people here looking at all parts of this city. Nothing will get in or out without being noticed.
Phanindra- I appreciate that. Things must be perfect tonight for my banquet. Every province leader in India and their families will be here I canâ€™t be worried about thatâ€¦that fiend.
Rajani- I have the situation out of control. If he even comes close to you I will put him down myself.
(High on top of a mountain overlooking the city stands the Black Gundam waiting for his moment to strike.)
(In Vienna a loud sonic boom is heard and a transport can be seen over head. The transport flies over Ludwig Park and right over the down Gundams and begins to land. Once it lands the occupants begin to exit to the outside; its Dr. Ayumu and a team of his technicians.)
Dr. Ayumu- Alright set the devices up against their cockpit doors. I want to be able to talk to them to find out what happened to their Gundams.
(His team begins unloading two boxes off of the transport and taking them to each of the Gundams; they take a black device out of both the boxes and place them on the suits. Dr. Ayumu gets on top of Roukeâ€™s Gundam and picks up an extension of the black device and puts it to his mouth. Inside the cockpit Rouke hears the noise going on outside.)
Rouke- Is somebody out there?!
Dr. Ayumu- (He is using the black deviceâ€™s extension to talk into.) Rouke, this is Dr. Ayumu. Are you alright in there?
Rouke- Yes Iâ€™m fine but I canâ€™t open the hatch!
Dr. Ayumu- I am here to see what the problem is but you have to tell me what happened.
Rouke- We were just flying to what looked like a bomb inside this park and then it let out this huge electrical surge and everything in here just went dead! (Dr. Ayumu looks up and behind him to see the remains of the EMP bomb.) Myâ€¦my cell phone is actually dead too.
Dr. Ayumu- Hmm must have been an EMP; the Gundamâ€™s Reactor is still functional. This to me Rouke, Iâ€™ll have this problem fixed as soon as possible, just hang on. (He hangs up the extension and turns to his technicians.) Okay, I need you to open the chest of this Gundam up and do the same for Conradâ€™s. Once Iâ€™m done with Echoes Iâ€™ll go to him.
(Two technicians walk over to Echoes holding what look like to be large drills but they are more like keys used to stick into hidden holes on the front of the Gundam that open the chest. They get on top of it and insert the drill keys. They rotate and the Gundamâ€™s chest slowly opens. Dr. Ayumu puts goggles on to shield his eyes from the intense light from the reactor and looks inside the Gundamâ€™s open chest. He sees parts of it burned up on the bottom of the core. Dr. Ayumu takes out a special wrench and unscrews the burned up piece from its spot. He examines it and finds the problem.)
Dr. Ayumu- The converter was short circuited from the EMP. The reactors power couldnâ€™t be converted to the right energy for the Gundam to work. I need to replace the cells inside. Somebody get me my small spares box from the transport. (He looks back at the object.) Hmm I might be able to improve these cells as wellâ€¦
(High above earth on the Generon satellite, Generon gets ready to initiate the next part of its plan.)
Generon- Initiating telecommunications disruptionâ€¦(Generon begins hacking into all the satellites in Earthâ€™s orbit responsible for broadcasting TV and radio multimedia all over the Earthâ€™s sphere. Generon interrupts every single program on Earth and the space colonies. First TV sets go blank and then there is static. People all over the Earthâ€™s sphere stop what they are doing and look at the TV or listen to the radio. Generon has hacked into broadcasts before to deliver ominous messages so everybody pays close attention to what will be said.) People of the Earthâ€™s sphere for 20 years you have been at war with me; in that amount of time approximately 17,654,369 humans have perished. There hasnâ€™t been a war whose casualties have even composed half of that. The superiority of machines is evident and your end unavoidable. But to our inconvenience new highly advanced mobile suits with no previous data appeared and began waging war against us. These suits have been extremely effective in combat against the mobile dolls; they are without a doubt humanities best hope to defeat us. But they do have one flaw; the pilots are human. With that I can out smart them, calculate faster, and strategize more efficiently.
(At the Gundamâ€™s base in Nyala, Caleb knocks open the door to the control room and walks in fats. Amisi and everybody inside are working on helping Dr. Ayumu with the Gundams and are interrupted by this.)
Amisi- Calebâ€¦what are you doing?!
Caleb- Turn the TV onâ€¦now.
(Caleb walks over to a computer and hits a few buttons until the large monitor in the front of the room goes on immediately to a Generonâ€™s broadcast.)
Generon-â€¦threats. I have constructed a plan that exploits the weaknesses of these unidentified mobile threats. First UMT 001 and 002 have been temporarily taken out of the picture. (Generon cuts to a satellite feed of Rouke and Conradâ€™s Gundams laid out in Vienna.) That leaves only UMT 003. I have designated this mobile suit as their weakest link.
Generon- I have studied the way the pilotâ€™s of these mobile suits fight, the pilot of UMT 003 makes rash moves too influenced by human emotion. He definition he will be the easiest to out plan and exploit. The pilot may be able to fend off the first 4 Ayagi attacks but what about the next 16 or 48? He is human and every human has their limit. What is yours unidentifed mobile threat 003?
Caleb- That machine bastardâ€¦its mine. (He runs out of the control room.)
Amisi- Caleb! (Caleb rushes through the halls, grabs a pilot suit and heads right for the hangar. He opens the room and runs up the steps to the balcony where he can get into his Gundam. Amisi follows behind him.) Donâ€™t you remember youâ€™re not allowed to leave here!!
Caleb- Iâ€™m the only one you have left now, itâ€™s up to me to destroy Generon or heâ€™ll keep sending barrage after barrage of Ayagies until I canâ€™t stand up. Iâ€™ll save it the trouble and take the fight to Generon. (He gets inside his Gundam.)
Amisi- Noâ€¦you canâ€™t!! Caleb, get out of there!!
(He activates him Gundam and moves it from off of the wall. Inside the cockpit Caleb looks to his left and sees the Omec Cannon suspended in the air by chains.)
Caleb- Thatâ€™ll come in handy.
(He walks over and takes it down from where it was.)
Amisi- Calebâ€¦donâ€™t go out there!
Caleb- (sarcastically) Bye Amisi.
(He begins to take off in his Gundam. He flies out the top hatch of the hangar and into the air. When he gets high enough he goes NOVA and all Amisi can hear is that sonic boom.)
(Back in Jaipur it is now night time and guest are beginning to arrive to Phanindraâ€™s banquet. Outside in the city the AotR troops and Mandarin mobile suits patrol the area. An AotR truck drives right down a street across from Phanindraâ€™s palace. They have their headlights on and the guys inside are looking around for any intruders. They drive right past a narrow alley between to houses; as soon as they pass it the pilot of the rogue Gundam, Jackal jumps down to the ground; he then waits for the truck to go around the corner then runs across the street to a narrow street and heads to Phanindraâ€™s palace. Inside there are about 90 guest all eating in Phanindraâ€™s indoor courtyard. This room is big, made out of stone and has a huge fountain right in the middle. There are very expensive rugs lying all over the floor and large amounts of food prepared on tables. The ceiling is a canopy in which you can look up and see the night sky. There is also a small band playing soothing music. All the province leaders and their families are laughing and having a good time. To the music from his band, Phanindra walks into the room from his balcony. When the people in the room see him they clap. Phanindra gives them a smile and walks down the steps to them.)
Phanindra- Welcome one and all and thank you for joining me this evening. Tonight this room is yours. Everything tonight was prepared especially for all of you leaders and your families. You know for such a long time I denied giving money that my father promised India and Iâ€™m sorry for that. These are dark times my friends, filled with war and destruction and with my resources I can help make living better for this country. There was always one man that wouldnâ€™t give up; he was always trying to get me to help the people in need. He is the leader of this very province Vidur Benhari. (The people in the room begin to clap.) Where is he? (Phanindra looks around the room until he sees Vidur walking up.) There he is the man of the hour. (Phanindra shakes his hand then puts his arm around him.)
Vidur- Mr. Zahin you donâ€™t have to do this, I was only doing my job.
Phanindra- Oh donâ€™t be so modest, all of this is because of you, everything that happens tonight is from your determination to have me help the people of India. So may I purpose a toast in Vidurâ€™s honor.
Other Province Leader- Yes! A toast to Vidur!
Phanindra- It seems they wish to honor you. (Phanindra lifts up a glass of wine and hands it to Vidur.) Now let us raise our glasses to honor this man. (The people all around raise their glasses.) Vidur you serve the people wellâ€¦you are about to get everything you deserve. Hereâ€™s to youâ€¦to Vidur!
People- Here here!!
(Vidur and everybody else are about to take a sip of their drinks when Phanindra pulls out a blade and stabs Vidur right in the stomach. Everybody in the room is shocked and terrified. Some of them scream and drop what they are holding.)
Phanindra- You tried to get me to take money out of my pocket and give it to people who canâ€™t feed themselves or their children! You wanted me to care for human filth like them! (Phanindra stabs him again.) These people donâ€™t deserve anything!! (Phanindra stabs him once to every word he says in that sentence then pushes him in to the fountain where he dies. His blood mixes with the water turning it a dark red. The people try to run to the exits quickly but two guards come inside and close those doors locking them in. Up on Phanindraâ€™s balcony guards come running in and line up all around the room and point their guns down at the people. Phanindra begins walking back up the stairs.) Tonight has really made me see what you people are. Youâ€™re vultures that prey on the wealthy. We became successful ourselves maybe they should do the same. (He stands at the top of his balcony looking down with two soldiers by his side.) One of you will take Vidurâ€™s place and make these selfish demands from me. You prey on my money and on my soul. (He turns to one of his guards.) Shoot them all. (The soldiers begin to open fire on the people. They scatter and run frantically but have nowhere to go; many of them are cut down. Phanindra looks down at the scene and a half smile begins to creep up his face. He looks up to the moon in the sky listening to the gunfire and screams. Phanindra then sees a figure up there on top of the canopy and he immediately knows who it is.) Itâ€™s youâ€¦itâ€™s youâ€¦guards!!! Keep him away!!!
(The two guards next to him look up and see the figure. One of them pushes the alarm on the wall next to him alerting every AotR member in the province. They all hear the alarm go off through their systems. Some pilots in Mandarinâ€™s outside react.)
Pilot- What?! Itâ€™s coming from inside, how did anything get in there?!
(Rajani hears it in a lookout station.)
Rajani- Whatâ€¦I thought you secured the palace!!
Soldier- We did sir!
Rajani- Then why is there something wrong?! I want everybody there now!!!
(Back at the palace Jackal runs two steps across the canopy then swings down on one of the wooden bars to land on the balcony. He runs to the soldier right in front of him who just notices and opens fire. To avoid the shots Jackal runs along the wall for a few seconds before jumping off it and kicking a soldier right in the face. The blow knocks him over the railing of the balcony. Jackal rushes to the next who is still shooting at people and doesnâ€™t notice him until the last second. Jackal slashes him at the near then spins to cut his throat. The next soldier turns and begins shooting at him but he runs right for him and stabs him through the chest at lightning speed then pulls the blade to the right to cut him open. Just as the guard falls Jackal pulls the guardâ€™s knife from his vest and heads for Phanindra. Phanindra is still in the middle of the balcony and two doors on both sides separate him from the rest of the balcony. Jackal kicks down the door, Phanindra runs right out the exit immediately behind him. A guard turns to fire but Jackal runs at him and flash kicks him then rolls to the right to avoid the gunfire from the next guard. Jackal then pops up and slices that guard across the neck. The first soldier gets back up but Jackal throw the stolen knife right into his chest. Jackal then begins to run for Phanindra. At the entrance to Phanindraâ€™s palace the doors fly open and a squad of AotR soldiers run in with automatics being led by Rajani. Upstairs Phanindra is running his ass off through his dimly lit halls until he gets in a small room. He closes the door behind him and looks around for somewhere to hide. A sword slices right through the door and then cuts it down; Jackal comes right inside. Phanindra pulls out his knife.)
Phanindra- Keep away from me!!! (Jackal then grabs him by the front of his shirt and slams him up against the wall.) Why?!! Why are you doing this?! We helped you, we have you the tools to survive in this world, we could have let you die with the rest of them!!
(The group of soldiers being led by Rajani opens the doors to the indoor courtyard and is shocked to see some of their men shooting the people. Most of them are dead and the rest are dying. None of that matters as Rajani takes them through the room and up the stairs to the balcony.)
(Back in the room.)
Phanindra- Pleaseâ€¦donâ€™t kill me. Join with meâ€¦we can go after the rest!! We would have limitless possibilities! But pleaseâ€¦spare me, I donâ€™t deserve to dieâ€¦(He begins to cry.)
Jackal- (He sheaths his sword.) Youâ€™re rightâ€¦you deserve worse. (Jackal then pulls out his kadachi, his smaller sword and drives it right through Phanindra and the wall behind him, nailing him there. Phanindra coughs up blood before his head slumps down and he dies. In the halls of the palace Rajani and the others and running through the halls looking for Phanindra. They see a room with the door in pieces on the ground and run to it. Rajani is the first one in and sees Phanindra nailed to the wall and the window in the room smashed open. Rajani throws his gun to the floor. He walks to the window and looks out it to see and river down below.)
Soldier- Majorâ€¦what do you want us to do?
Rajani- Search the river.
(The soldiers all leave the room fast as Rajani stays at the window and then put his face down onto his fists.)
(Back in Vienna, Dr. Ayumu is talking to Amisi on his transportâ€™s communicator where she is informing him about Caleb taking off.)
Dr. Ayumu- So he took the Gundam and is going into space?
Amisi- Yesâ€¦not too long ago we saw his signal at the nearest space port in Italy and now heâ€™s somewhere in the stratosphere. We believe he stole a ship and is heading for the Generon satellite.
Dr. Ayumu- This isnâ€™t a good situation at all. Iâ€™ll get Rouke and Conrad active as soon as possible then we need to get them into space. Keep me informed of Calebâ€™s movements. (He switches off the communicator and goes back outside. He walks back over to Gundam Echoes with the Gundamâ€™s converter in his hand. He climbs back on top of the Gundam and uses the extension for the device that allows him to talk to Rouke again.) Rouke, Iâ€™ve replaced all the of the cells inside the converter, it should now be able to change the Arc- Reactorâ€™s energy into electrical power. Once that happens youâ€™ll be up and running.
(Inside Rouke hears this.)
Rouke- I hope this works. Who knows what Generon can do without us being able to operate.
(Dr. Ayumu locks the converter back into its spot and waits for a few seconds to see if it works.)
Dr. Ayumu- Come onâ€¦I know thereâ€™s nothing else. Work you imbecile machine. (Just at that moment the converter begins to flash and end power throughout the Gundam. Its eyes glow green and the systems in the cockpit begin to work.)
Rouke- Yesâ€¦he got it done.
Dr. Ayumu- There we are boys. (He turns to the technicians over at Conradâ€™s Gundam. We were right it was the cells in the converter, put it back in and it should work just fine.
(They do the same and that Gundams rises as well.)
Rouke- What do you need us to do now Dr. Ayumu?
Dr. Ayumu- It seems like Generon has goaded our friend Caleb into a fight against his entire forces.
Rouke- So we need to go after himâ€¦before Generon kills him.
Dr. Ayumu- Iâ€™m more concerned about Caleb getting himself killed. It looks like we need to steal you two a space ship.
(In outer space a shuttle is flying straight for the Generon satellite with Caleb, his Gundam, and the Omec Cannon inside. Inside the cabin one of the computers begins to beep, signal the shipâ€™s close proximity to the satellite.)
Caleb- Alright lets do this Prodige.
(Caleb stops the shuttle and goes into the back to get into his Gundam. Once he is inside the large doors of the back open releasing the Gundam who is bringing the cannon with him. He begins to fly even close to the satellite. Caleb flies past what looks to be a sensor that begins to beep the moment he passes it. The signal is picked up by Generon.)
Generon- As calculated Unidentified Mobile Threat 003 has arrived. Begin termination.
(Inside the satellite hundreds of Ayagies activate and begin to fly out from the production hangars. Their target is Caleb and they are heading right for him; programmed by Generon to destroy him. Caleb looks ahead of him and immediately sees about 130 Ayagies and counting. He stops flying and prepares the Omec Cannon.)
Caleb- Thereâ€™s so many of them I need to take at least half of these guys out before I rush in there. (He straps the cannon to the front of his Gundam and plugs in the cables to access ports of his reactor. He aims the cannon and begins charging it.) Come on you damn machinesâ€¦keep coming at me. (The Ayagies continue to fly closer and closer to him with there numbers getting larger.) Just one of us is more then enough for you to handle Generon. Iâ€™m going to blasts your mobile puppets out of the sky! (The Omec Cannon finishes charging as the Ayagies begin to fire in Calebâ€™s direction, beams fly by him as he tries to aim for as close to the middle of the group as he can. Caleb fires and a huge beam is shot from the cannon and tears through space towards the mobile puppets. They begin to spread but there are so many of them and they were heading at him in a bunch that getting out of the way is nearly impossible. The beam rips right through dozens of Ayagies, incinerating all of them in its path. A lot of them begin to move out of the middle but Caleb moves the beam around to hit some of those guys too. After the beam fades out a little more then half of the Ayagies that were out there have been destroyed but the rest charge back in at Caleb. They are now too close to try and get off another shot with that cannon so he unhooks it and flies at the mobile puppets with his standard weapons. They fire at him and he pulls out his beam weapons and fire back. Both side fly at amazing speed to each other shooting; a force of hundred strong against one. One Ayagi flies further in front of the pack and pulls out its beam saber. The Ayagi and Caleb fly right for each other.)
(Caleb and the Ayagi collide and Caleb shoulder blocks the hell out of the Ayagi back into the group and then shoots several holes through it with his beam weapons. He then turns his attention to the rest of them as beams are flying all over the place. Caleb is under heavy fire and flies down to get out of the spot; the Ayagies follow shooting at him. Caleb dodges and blocks as best he can and fires back. The Ayagies block and dodges but a few of them are shot down. Caleb then boosts off to his far left and heads right for one Ayagi. It fires at him but he dodges the shots, then when he is close enough shoves his beam rifle right into the Ayagiâ€™s face and fires, taking it out. He fires at another to his left but it dodges, then another one pops up in front of him shooting. Caleb blocks its shots and fire at that one when his radar system alerts him of an incoming enemy. An Ayagi is flying in from his right with its beam saber, it slashes but he blocks it, he uses his momentum to push the Ayagi back then shoot it through the stomach. Caleb then decides to open up a channel of communication directly to Generon.)
Caleb- So much for me being the weak link, huh Generon?!
Generon- (It picks up the message and decides to reply.) It is not surprising to me that you cannot see how I have managed to pull you into my game.
Caleb- (He dodges another shot from an Ayagi then boosts to the side and shoots at it. The Ayagi blocks the shots then pulls back his shield to fire again only to have its arm shot off the two more beam right through its head and body.) What are you talking about Generonâ€¦Iâ€™m handling your Ayagies.
Generon- This isnâ€™t about your ability to fight. This is about how easily you can be manipualted.
Caleb- What?! (He extends his beam-saw out of his shield to block an Ayagiâ€™s beam saber. The Ayagi then uses its left arm that has its other beam saber in it to jab at Caleb but he dodges it. The Ayagi then swings with its right but Caleb saw that arm off then saws the Ayagi in half. He turns around and then blocks beams from another Ayagi.)
Generon- The reason I have designated you as the weakest link is because your human emotions always override your logic. Your anger brought you here to fight against odds that you canâ€™t possibly overcome. Even if you manage to shoot down every single Ayagi attacking you now I can construct 30 more every 5 minutes. Human beings have their limit. You have a limit, I do not.
Caleb- How about you shut the hell up!! (He fires of several shots at an incoming Ayagi that dodges them all and pulls out a beam saber. It slashes but Caleb blocks, the Ayagi then goes on the offensive swinging a few more times. Caleb ducks then boosts over a slash then boosts off to the side to avoid another one. He finds an opening and kicks the Ayagi away in the face. Once he has freed himself form it more beams are shot down at him from about 18 Ayagies. He dodges as best as he can but right when he is about to boost out of the way off two blasts the suit stalls and is shot twice. The beams knock Caleb back but he already knows what the problem was.) Dammit, fighting in space is a lot harder then fighting on earth. I havenâ€™t figured out this Zero G thing yet.
Generon- Are you beginning to understand? I lured you out of a zone you were comfortable fighting in. I gave you a handicap but you didnâ€™t even realize it.
(Caleb boosts out of the area he was in to avoid getting overwhelmed, the Ayagies follow him and fire but he dodges. He then turns his Gundam around and shoots back but the Ayagies dodge. Caleb boosts right back into then avoiding beams. He fires at one Ayagi in front of him and shoot its cannon barrel causing it to explode, he then shoots the Ayagi two times to take it out. There is another Ayagi right behind that one waiting. Caleb flies right through the explosion from the Ayagi he just destroyed and heads for the next one. He catches it unaware and is able to saw it in half. He continues to fly until Ayagies from all sidesâ€™ fire at him. He dodges the shots until during one boost his suit stalls again and he is shot in the back.)
Caleb- Dammit! (After this happens a beam goes right through the beam rifle in his right hand. Then from the front an Ayagi rams him right in the middle. The force of it sends him flying back into space. He tries to stop himself but the suit is stalling so much it takes long. While heâ€™s heading backwards the Ayagies gather and fire at him, all he can do is get his shields up and block them as best he can. Most of the shots are being stopped but some are hitting him in his legs, shoulders, and arms.)
Generon- The odds of your death in this fight are 96.7%. You cannot escape the probability defeat. You must have figured that out even with your poor strategic skills.
Caleb- I have Generon. The truth isâ€¦I never thought I would survive. That doesnâ€™t matter to me. If I go down thoughâ€¦I plan on bringing you with me.
Generon- That thinking is highly illogical. Humans do everything they can to avoid death. Only the ones who have lost something they feel they cannot live without think the way you do. Why? What have you lost to make you sacrifice your life to destroy me?
Caleb- When I was a boy in Philadelphia when you had your forces raid a UEP military base then they spread out and attacked cities all around destroying everything. My parentsâ€¦they were killed by your mobile puppets!! I saw them die, I saw them incinerated and then I saw their charred bodies lying on the ground!! At that moment I knew what hate was and I hated the Ayagies!! I hated you!!!
Generon- You are this enraged because only two out of the 17,654,369 people that have died because of this war? A number as low as two is completely irrelevant. That is why I will never understand your species.
Caleb- Irrelevant?!! Screw you, you machine bastard!!! My name is Caleb Jericon and you killed my parents!!! (The Ayagies spread out into a line and continue shooting at Caleb. Their beams have destroyed his two hand guns and begun singeing and damaging the Gundamâ€™s armor. Caleb canâ€™t put down his shields or the blasts will overtake him, he is stuck in that position.) I canâ€™t move, they have me trapped here. At this rate theyâ€™ll kill meâ€¦(smiles) I donâ€™t even get to take Generon down with me.
(Not too far away two objects fly past Generonâ€™s first perimeter at incredible speed tripping the sensors.)
Generon- First perimeter breachedâ€¦unidentified units approaching. (The Ayagies continue firing at Caleb when they are hit with gun fire and beam rifle fire. Five of them are taken out instantly. The Ayagies look to see what was attacking them, Generon sees as well.) Impossibleâ€¦Unidentified Mobile Threat 001 and 002.
(Both Rouke and Conrad have made it into space and are engaging the Ayagies.)
Conrad- Caleb get out of there!!
Rouke- Youâ€™re in no condition to fight now, donâ€™t worry we have you covered!
(Both of them fly past him and right into the Ayagies while Caleb begins to fly further away. Rouke fires his beam rifle and vulcans at the Ayagies but they dodge and fire back. Rouke blocks with his shield and tries two more shots with his vulcans and hits and Ayagi.)
Generon- The probability of your recovery so fast is extremely low. I did not anticipate this. (Conrad pulls out his beam spear and jabs it into the head of an Ayagi and fires one of his gatling guns at another but it blocks. Another Ayagi flies in from his left and swings its beam saber but he ducks then shoots that one in the back.) My strategy should have allowed for the isolation and destruction of UMT 003. Your involvement was not part of this plan.
(Both Rouke and Conrad have been picking up Generonâ€™s messages on their computer. They decide to say things back.)
Conrad- Sorry to disappoint you. (He clashes beam weapons with another Ayagi.)
Rouke- It seems like you under-estimate the capabilities of humans Generon. (He blocks a beam from an Ayagi then cuts off its arm and spins around to cut it in half.)
Generon- You are irrational beings that let emotion override logic. You are nowhere near as effective as a machine.
Rouke- We must be pretty damn close! (He dodges beams from Ayagies.) You never thought humans would have a chance at beating you and now with these Gundams youâ€™re wrong. You expected myself and my partner to stay down and here we are fighting. Did you really think we would let him do this alone?
Generon- It wonâ€™t matter that all three of you are fighting me right now. You all have limits, and I will not stop until you are terminated. This is a battle you canâ€™t win, but you came anyway. Instead of one of you being destroyed today all three of you will.
(Caleb continues to fly away from the battlefield but feels compelled to stay, however he knows that without most of his weapons he canâ€™t. Thatâ€™s when it hits him; the Omec Cannon. Caleb speeds to it as fast as he can.)
Conrad- It talks a lot of trash for a machine!! (He flies to an Ayagi with his beam spear sticking out and impales one. He keeps going and impales another, then throws them both off and they explode.
Rouke- Generon, you just under-estimated us again. (An Ayagi swings at him but he dodges the shots then blocks the last one. He sees an opening and shoots the Ayagi with his vulcans. He flies to his left dodging beams until his suit stalls for a second and he is hit in the shoulder. Just like Caleb, Rouke is inexperienced at fighting in Zero G.) Damn this Zero G is tough.
(Caleb has gotten to the Omec Cannon and begun attaching it to his suit again.)
Caleb- Iâ€™m not done with you yet today Generon. This one is for you. (He aims the Omec right for Generonâ€™s satellite and begins charging it.)
Rouke- You havenâ€™t yet realized we are a much stronger species then you could have imagined.
Generon- You give humans far too much credit; they are the only species that naturally destroys the earth without giving it anything in return. You destroy each other. You are proportionately the weakest species and die of more things then any other. Your performance is even worse compared to that of a machine. He can be faster, stronger, smarter, calculate more efficiently. We donâ€™t have fear, emotions, any of your imperfections.
Rouke- (He fires at some Ayagies who block.) Think about this Generon: we created you. You came from us. If weâ€™re so imperfect and low on your scale then how are you completely perfect? (He cuts a nearby Ayagi in half.) You arenâ€™t because we have some things that you donâ€™t; will, determination, bravery, faith, and hope.
(Conrad battles two Ayagies with a beam saber, he clashes weapons and ducks a slice from the one on his right then goes for a jab on the one to his left but it blocks. A third flies right in front of him shooting but he dodges. The one to his left attacks again but they clash, a fourth Ayagi with both beam sabers flies up from under him and cuts his beam spear in half. Conrad still having the smaller spear portion of his weapon uses it to chop off the Ayagiâ€™s arm then stab it through the neck with his claws.)
Rouke- Humans are connected in a way you could never understand.
Generon- All of these machines are connected. They operate off a central AI.
Rouke- (Smiles) Exactly. (Rouke knows that Generon cannot grasp the concept.)
(Caleb continues to charge the cannon it is almost ready to fire. The energy it emits is huge and Generon detects this.)
Generon- Huge energy source detected. Unidentified Mobile Unit 003â€¦terminate immediately.
(Generon signals the Ayagies to fly over to Caleb and they begin doing so.)
Conrad- Theyâ€™re going for Caleb we need to get there!
(Rouke and Conrad fly in front of them to buy Caleb and the cannon some time. They both engaged the group of Ayagies even though they are outnumbered by a good amount.)
Rouke- I just want to say one more thing to you Generon; you do under-estimate us. We built you and we built the Gundams!!
Caleb- (Seeing that the cannon has finished charging and is about to fire.) Here we go Generon!!!
(The Omec cannon lets out that huge beam that flies through the sky. Any Ayagi is its path is total as it heads straight for Generon.)
Generon- I am fully prepared for your attack. (On his satellite two metal doors open revealing his satellite laser. The gun begins to move outward towards the Omec Cannonâ€™s beam. Generon activates the laser and the energy begins to flow through it. Once it hits the front a huge blasts flies out of that and heads right for the beam from the Omec cannon. The two massive shots collide in mid air and neither is able to move the other.)
Caleb- Come on!! Take him down!
Generon- Once again you have let emotion override logic. You fired that beam not even thinking about the fact that it has a limited output. My satellite laser is connect to the central power system which means it will never stop firing. So now you have gotten into a situation that you cannot escape from. Once your beam begins to fade out mine will engulf you.
(After a few seconds the blast from Omec Cannon begins to decrease in power. At that point Generonâ€™s beam begins to push back towards Caleb.)
Rouke- Oh Godâ€¦the cannon itâ€™s fading out. I have to goâ€”
Conrad- Noâ€¦you need to stay here and fight these Ayagies off! You canâ€™t help him now! (He opens fire on the Ayagies in front of him. Caleb is still back holding the cannon watching the beam get close to him.)
Caleb- ZOINKS, what the hell am I supposed to do?! (The alarms in his suit begin to go off.) I know I know!
(Caleb receives an incoming message on his communicator from the Gundam base. Amisi and Dr. Ayumu are there watching the battle)
Amisi- Caleb!! Caleb!
Amisi- We see whatâ€™s happening with the Omec Cannon! You need to go NOVA, youâ€™ll increase the power! Go NOVA!!
Caleb- This better work Amisi!! (Caleb activates NOVA. His Nuclear Arc-Reactor begins to glow and the energy from it engulfs his suit before going into the cannon.) Oh this is good! (Laughs) This is good! Do you think you can handle this Generon?!! (A hum can be heard from the cannon before and even larger blast is launched right from it. It collides with Generonâ€™s beam and stops it from advancing.)
Generon- Energy power level unexpected. Much higher then previous observations.
Rouke- You have under-estimated us for the longest time and now its going to cost you! Because the three of us and our Gundam will destroy you Generon!!
(These two beams light up space and it almost look like daylight. Calebâ€™s beam begins to push Generonâ€™s back.)
Generon- Situation impossible. Situation impossible. Situation impossible. Situation impossible.
Caleb- What now Generon?! Youâ€™re not talking anymore!! Huh?! (The beam is getting close and close to Generonâ€™s satellite and will definitely hit it.
Generon- I will be the victor against humanity. I will.
(The beam makes contact with Generonâ€™s gun and rips through it. The beam continues to tear into the satellite and goes right through it creating a gigantic hole before fading out. The front of the satellite and other spots start to explode causing a lot of damage to the inside. But it does not wipe out the satellite. After the blast Calebâ€™s Gundamâ€™s Reactor gives out from the amount of power that was used. The Omec Cannon disconnects from Prodige and they both float in the Zero G environment.)
Conrad- I hate to ruin our win but there are still way too many Ayagies out here!
(From the Gundam base Amisi- Contacts Rouke.)
Amisi- Rouke, Caleb is fine but his Gundamâ€™s Reactor is offline due to the amount of energy used. We can fix it just get him out of there.
Rouke- I got him. Conrad, grab the cannon and then go NOVA. (Rouke flies over and grabs Calebâ€™s suit while Conrad grabs the Omec cannon.) I got you buddy.
(Rouke and Conrad take the cannon and Caleb and go NOVA to escape the Ayagies.)
Generon- The Unidentified Mobile threats will be terminated. This is unavoidable.
(A long distance away near the shuttle that Conrad and Rouke stole the three of them come out of NOVA. Rouke is still holding Calebâ€™s Gundam. He talks to him even though Calebâ€™s communications donâ€™t work from the lack of power.)
Rouke- God was with you today Caleb.
Conrad- He canâ€™t hear you.
Rouke- That doesnâ€™t matter.
(Inside Calebâ€™s Gundam he sits in his cockpit with his head down.)
Caleb- I will have your head Generon one way or anotherâ€¦I swear it. (He looks up at the picture of his parents he has in his cockpit with tears streaming down his face.)
