Chapter Six: Supply

It is impossible to develop strategy in the absence of intelligence.

You cannot deploy tactics in the face of the unknown.

The majority of the High Command anticipated a prolonged engagement, believing they would have time to survey the field, gather data, and generate the information they needed to understand the peril they were in, and what aid they could supply to the Central Planet.

They could not envision that the threat they were facing was military in nature, they knew to little.

The entire fleet did not launch, only the expeditionary forces, the most lethal war ships bristling with the most exotic array of weaponry.

They argued for the need to be prepared for any eventuality.

The most seasoned and combat ready commanders took the lead, unaware of the rebels in their midst.

They leapt into the Central System blind, and unknowing.

During the insurrection, this mistake became obvious, they had acted hastily, and forewent the usual vetting processes and precautions that would normally proceed such a massive deployment.

The failure to launch left the majority of the Imperial forces vulnerable, weak and defenseless, they were open to be attacked.

The rebels took advantage in both theatres of combat, at the muster point above the Throne World, and at the jump point above Home World.

Day 337, December 3rd, 2017

 

Chapter One: Ground

 

In war, the ground you occupy, the ground you move into, that ground determines everything.

 

In space, ground is a euphemism for the matrix of complex actions occurring in multiple vectors.

 

In space combat everything is in motion, and the ground itself is always changing. The combat commander must be able to calculate every variable.

Chapter Two: Time

 

In the theatre of space combat, on the ZeroG battlefield, unified action was everything. It was a dance of the greatest complexity.

 

Keeping your forces arrayed together required more than the physical controls; to move, change vectors, to defend, attack. It required communication.

 

When it was over, those remaining were unsure of the next move.

Chapter Three: Light

 

During the battle, in the space around the Central Planet, the brilliant display of energies was followed by the absence of any light at all.

 

The onslaught lit the structure of HomeWorld, revealing to human eyes for the first time the expanse of the artificial world.

 

It was more massive than the mind could imagine.

Chapter Four: Space

 

In the theatre of ZeroG combat, there was no such thing as ZeroG, the label was a misnomer.

 

The forces of Gravity were absolutely crucial.

 

Combat took place in the vacuum of space, but gravity wells, singularities, artificial mass, the deployment of these devices, and the navigation of them, they were the keys to victory.

Chapter Five: Movement

 

ZeroG tactics must be developed according to the following understanding:

 

In the vacuum of space, when you are maneuvering and not subject to gravity, where there is no resistance, everything is in motion.

 

There is no straight line between you and your objective.

 

There is no clear path.

 

Every object in the vicinity is tracked.

Chapter Seven: Range

 

In the ever changing dynamics of ZeroG combat the range between opponents was in constant flux.

 

Every victory created new obstacles, sudden changes in the vectors of pilotless craft, the creation of debris fields, scattering in the void.

 

Every object had to be scanned and tracked, every possible danger had to be analyzed for threats.
