Zane monitored his fleet and sent back word to the Prophets about some interesting "Individuls" that had found, and several systems that were fully colonizable. Already the first discovered one was set up for the most part and already had a small defensive fleet.
Zane rubbed his temples and leaned back in his seat staring out the front view.
17,000 Ships... An estimate really, Zane thought. The Prophets knew something that Zane did not. They knew something was going to happen. I mean by Zane's estimates keeping this Fleet active and supplies was costing the NTF around 389 Billion Galactic Credits, not a critical blow to their economy but a large enough sum to cause pause. And the rienforcements almost every day and night. By Zane's reconing, something big was going to happen. With that Zane opened up fleet com, and iniated orders Xwk. Than the fleet was gone. Warped to their target system. Weapons armed, and ready.
