G'day guys! Hope this mini-series was as fun to view as it was for us to make it, cheers all :)
About this creation
Tanya Roberts makes her way back to the flight deck, commandeers her borrowed Viper, and races back to Galactica.
Fasio: "Captain, she's escaped!"
Dendauw: "Jam all comm signals! Tell the CAP to intercept!"
Tanya: "Galactica, Yankee! Attempting to flee hostile forces! Galactica! Do you copy?! (Static) Frak!"
Shraga: "Commander, it's Roberts. Looks like she's leaving in a hurray, Triton CAP in pursuit... Comm traffic being jammed, Sir..."
Nempec: "Redirect Vipers to intercept and escort her to the flight pod. Doug, set condition one!"
Digger: "Roger that Galactica, we're on our way!"
Watchko: "Action stations, action stations, set condition one throughout the ship!"
Watchko (over speakers): "Ready the Alert Vipers!"
Kuo: "You heard the XO, get those birds in the tubes!!"
Tanya (to herself): "They're launching Vipers?"
Dendauw: "We can't let her get to Galactica! Our plans will be ruined!"
Galactica CIC (static): "Captain Roberts, Galactica: Do you copy?! You are cleared for Combat Landing."
Tanya: "Roger that, Galactica, bringin' her in!"
Tanya: "Frak this! I'm not runnin'!!"
Tanya: "If you've got MY back, I've got yours!"
Tanya: "What the..."
A Tuesday evening at the Whitehouse, USA 10,059 AD...
'President Roberts, I don't know how to tell you this but since the Anti-PAX alliance smashed Europe's last Earth forces at the Battle of Austria, GAIA has somehow evacuated all 2 billion of its citizens and jumped its entire Home Battle Fleet away from Earth space. The evacuation has left a gap between Galactic China and AM-SPACE territories, and the Draggone have simply slipped through.'
'What? I thought Empress Katerina was arriving here today to sign on an unconditional surrender.'
'So did we all...'
'Draggone? How many?'
Tanya shook her head in dismay. How had it come to this? She had never wanted a war with Europe. But malicious disinformation from external spies over many years had created mistrust. It should have been so obvious that at the end of the Second Alien War, the long standing cold war on Earth would ignite. GAIA Director Levens had warned her long ago, to trust in the alliance above all else. SO why had she failed to trust Talia (Star-Girl) when the time came that the transpiring apocalypse could have been averted.
Tanya spat, she had never once mistrusted her old friends, but her stupid advisers had never really let her do anything her own way. Her Presidency had been a farce. And now the world was doomed; end of game...
Screaming, Tanya snapped back to reality, or was it the present? The future vision had been all too real, and Tanya knew one thing for certain, she wanted no part of it. Checking her six for any sign of pursuing Vipers, Tanya failed to notice what opened up before her, and then came the impact...
Cavern on Drakis IV
Tanya's Viper's reverse thrusters helped slow her entry,
but she made
a rough landing
never the less...
'Now that's a woman who knows how to make an entrance!' Kalic laughed.
'Hey Tanya! Wow, we found your crazy Yankee six!
'Where the, what the-'
'No time Yankee, we got evac- asap. Sweet ride by the way...'
And soon everyone was out and off world...
And the Emperor's fleet had arrived at Drakis IV.
Once back aboard the HMS Hand of God with his rescued daughter, and assured that his other daughter Talia was off world and safe in the company of Director Levens, the Emperor ordered the utter destruction of Drakis IV.
And so it was that on December 24th 10,010 AD, Humanity dealt the Draggone the nastiest blow they had ever suffered...
Thanking Marc Runde, Rabid Dog, Cody G, Jon B, Aidan Bryant, Shannon Ocean, Crimso Giger and Mike Johnson, for the wonderful contributions to GAIA that I have added above, cheers all :)
Long live BSG !!!
Long live GAIA!!!
Thanks to all my friends here on Moc Pages, and thanks to El-Barto for working with me on this fun project.
Many thanks to everyone who followed this crossover, and Parrington for the collaboration and ship swap! Glad you guys enjoyed the show!
hehe, hey there Stuart. So good to see this get a recent look. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I just happenned to look this over tonite and there your comment was. I don't think either Barto or myslef have logged in here for ages. I have been wondering for ages how to do a 'Christmas Special' kinda extra episode for this series. Anyway, cheers dude :)
So no multiple Tanya's? How sad! Well she is one of a kind to be sure. By the way thanks for giving the Flamberge a cameo shot with matching shadow to boot! I will build again one day I promise but would you believe I'm still sorting surplus pieces? Bravo to both of you on a job well done. Can't wait to see your next collaboration. Long live Barto's BSG! Long live Parrington's GAIA!
What an exploding finale! Great end for a too short, but very entertainig crossover. Hehe, I´ve discovered my GAIA contributions. Great to see that they made it here. And my 'Triakis Class' even brought along her seaport! :-) Thanks for all the effort you´ve put into this! ~Marc
It's over so soon? Aww... Superb work, the combination of your talents has produced some stellar episodes. I think that I speak for everyone in saying that I hope you do this again sometime. So say we all. ;)
Fantastic crossover, it's been quite entertaining! Took a minute to find, but I picked out the Black October in the final battle scene, looks like all that time with "Where's Waldo?" is finally paying off!
