#4 The strike against Totran Crater - Part one
An Explorien strikeforce attacks a alien installation close to Thintarr base, targeting a strange regeneration chamber. With the attack as distraction, the evacuation ships will be able to leave Thintarr and surrounding bases with less difficulty.
About this creation
In order to buy some time and divert the aliens attention from the remote Explorien bases, a strikeforce is sent against an UFO installation in Totran Crater, close to Thintarr outpost.

   At Colony Command, Gadri Meeltot, the colonys head administartor, briefs the situation with Felinia Haghal, veteran from many deepspace campaigns and commander of the military forces on Dvastakar IV. She is easily recognized by the missing left hand, a testament to the many times she have cheated death.



Enlarge image
   Six units of TF-9 fighters, divided into two squadrons escorts a dropship. Sneaking by trough orbital space and keeping to the cover of the ion disturbance, they will drop out on top of the alien installation in Toran Crater.

   ”This is Dvekar Leader. Dvekar squadron, engage incoming alien fighters.”
”This is Toran Leader. Toran squadron, draw groundfire away from the dropship.”



Enlarge image
   Dvekar two: ”These ships are fast!”
Dvekar leader: ”No wonder they managed to cripple Android Base #47:s defences so fast.”



Enlarge image
   Toran leader: ”Hurry up and deploy the groundforce, we will not be able to keep the anti-aircraft away very long.”



Enlarge image
   Dropship: ”Incoming!”



Enlarge image
   Captain Yhid: ”Everybody move out!!”



Enlarge image
   ”We’re already drawing fire from the groundforces!”



Enlarge image
   ”Hurry up, before they group themselves!”



Enlarge image
   ”Speed is of the essence now!”



Enlarge image
   The six man strong Thintarr strikeforce moves in against the towering alien buildings. Knowing that in this very moment, the alien forces are turning their eyes away from their fleeing comrades and the evacuation ships, and focusing on this unexpected retaliation.



Enlarge image
   ”Move! Into cover! This is not the time to stay and fight!” screams captain Yhid.



Enlarge image
   But, as the naive Explorien cadet were soon to discover, the alien had him in his scope as well. And it doesn’t matter if you’re fast, when your enemy has superhuman speed.



Enlarge image
   He falls in an alien hostile base on an alien planet, far from his homeworld.



Enlarge image
   The rest of the force makes it to the relative security below the docking building.



Enlarge image
   Captain Yhid takes out an approaching alien.



Enlarge image
   The lumbering building on the far side of the base suddenly gives away a creaking sound...



Enlarge image
   ...and makes a disturbing movement.



Enlarge image
   Suddenly, the Explorien force finds their path forward obstructed by a barrage of heavy laserfire.



Enlarge image
   Covered by this, an alien makes it to a security tower and puts the small force in a veritable crossfire.



Enlarge image
   ”Return fire!” shouts Captain Yhid above the creaks and blasts of the thundering laser. ”We got to get out of here, fast!”



Enlarge image
   Private Hyndel however, takes a personal initative.



Enlarge image
   The huge cannontower discovers what Hyndel is up to, surrounding him with crackling bolts of heavy laser.



Enlarge image
   With this distraction to their advantage, Hyndels comrades aims well and takes out another alien enemy.



Enlarge image
   Well positioned behind the shelter of the communications tower, Hyndel takes aim upon the security tower.



Enlarge image
   Hyndel: ”Security tower eliminated!”



Enlarge image
   Toran squad has lost two fighters. Suddenly, a moment appears for the pilot of Toran two, and she seizes it.



Enlarge image
   The groundforce cheers as the destroyed enemy fighter crashes to the ground.



Enlarge image
   ”Move out,” shouts Captain Yhid, realizing that there will not be another chance as good as this with both the security tower gone and the alien groundforces hidden behind a pile of destroyed starfighter.



Enlarge image
   However, the cannontower has turned its attention back to them once more, and one fierce alien refuses to give away his position as the Explorien storms forward. Another Explorien comrade falls for the deadly laser.



Enlarge image
   Captain Yhid disposes of another enemy...



Enlarge image
   ...but not fast enough. Private Jodal pays with his life for the lack of shelter.



Enlarge image
   Captain Yhid realizes that he’ve made a miscalculation and that if they continue like this, they will all be lost.



Enlarge image
   And so, he require air support. ”Something to distract that damned cannon building while we make a last go for the target!”
To himself he mumbles something about shitty recon wich didn’t warn him.



Enlarge image
   ”This is Dvekar two. I am going in!”



Enlarge image
   ”Hyndel!” shouts Captain Yhid as he and Private Hjard moves out. ”Cover for us!”



Enlarge image
   ”Will do! But watch out, you’ve got one coming straight at you!!”



Enlarge image
   ”Sir, he seems to be invulnerable to our fire!”
”Impossible! What is it doing!?”



Enlarge image
   With impossible speed it runs forward, without firing its weapon. Maybe it has depleted the powercore, maybe it is going berzerk. We will never know.

Great battle. But how did you made the air pictures? Are ships and ground shot seperate and add digitally or did someone hold the ships in air?
