Chapter Five: Deception
Jim was piqued, his emotions high, as millions of years of careful planning and waiting were coming to their final end.
Jim absolutely opposed the Continuum and its Empire, and now the Continuum was gone, the Collective sequestered and shut down, the military powers of the Empire were on the brink of destruction.
All of his attention was focused on the task at hand. The final conflict with the most insidious and oppressive force that could ever have been imagined.
He despised the society his ancestors had created, the oppressive, artificial, all-consuming cowardice of it.
He had already become the greatest mass murderer in the history of the galaxy, and he was about to add to the count.
He intended to wipe away the entire structure that undergirded the Empire, to plunge a million worlds into darkness, to cut them off from one another where they could evolve on their own, free from the oppressive, overcontrol of the Imperium.
The first and second phases of his great endeavor were nearly complete, he was on the cusp of victory.
He would replace the machinery of the Imperial order with something new, with something that would reignite the passion of the ancient people, the passion for freedom, exploration, and risk taking.
He allowed the fleet in, just so it could be eliminated, the entire armada reduced to a single vessel.
