Chapter 1193 Fight for Freedom
The sounds of alarm blaring throughout the Cursed s.h.i.+p were of course related to the unending influx of Dalki attack reports happening throughout the beast solar system. Supreme Commander Sach had ordered to share their intel in real time with not only the main groups' faction leaders but also all their known affiliates.
Right now, the Cursed faction's command centre was busier than ever and everyone on board the s.h.i.+p was preparing their beast gear and checking their supplies. A lot of them had families living on the Cursed faction planets and they were now extremely worried about their well being.
Of course the one who was responsible for deciding how to deal with this situation was none other than Sam. The frown on his forehead was deep as he was troubled as to how to react.
'What's the right thing to do?' Sam considered the options as he looked at the situation as a whole. Those in the Cursed faction wished to protect their families which was only right. Unfortunately, the Earthborn group as well as the Graylash family were both in as much trouble, if not more so and each had sent out a plea for help.
"Quinn, you finally answered we were just told-"
"The Dalki are already here, Sam!" Quinn cut the other off before he could finish his sentence. "I don't know the exact situation from your point of view, but I trust you to make the right decision. You've always known what's best for the Cursed faction. You've never let us down before, so I doubt you will start now!"
With that the call abruptly ended. Though it was faint, Sam was sure to have heard the sound of explosions in the background. It appeared as the fight had already begun.
'Truthfully, with Helen and Quinn there they already have the biggest support of the Cursed faction.' Sam thought. 'However, no matter how strong they might be, there're just two of them, yet so many Dalki and planets we have to save…'
Death was unavoidable in a war, especially in a situation like this, where they had practically been caught with their pants down. n.o.body had ever accounted for a scenario in which the Dalki would have enough forces to attack all of humanity's planets at once.
Of course, the Cursed faction would like to help out their own first, but strategically that wasn't the best option. Should they allow the Earthborn group or the Graylash family to fall, they would become p.r.o.ne to suffering from pincer attacks in the future.
'Have the Dalki hidden their actual numbers, did they find a way to create more or are their forces just too strong for us? Whatever the case, with the teleporters jammed we can only send out reinforcements by s.h.i.+p, but if they are already struggling, it's unlikely that they can wait for us to visit one after the other.'
'There's also a risk that our forces won't be strong enough if we split them up too much. At the moment, both Sach and Owen are thinking about the future, trying to keep as many beast planets in their position to continue the fight in this war. I'm afraid that this might be a burst attack, aimed to deal with us now and in one go.'
'The best course of action would be to give up some of the planets and gather our forces on fewer planets. Having too many territories just thins out our own forces, and if we're really already struggling this much, we will eventually lose those planets anyway. Our priority should be to survive and struggle as long as possible… hoping for a miracle.'
If there was one person Sam had confidence in most, it was Quinn. Perhaps he would be able to win the battle for them at the Cursed faction at the same time, there was another reliable person with him who could command just as well, if not better during a state of crisis.
'Helen, Quinn. I'm sorry but I'm going to have to leave the Cursed faction planets in your hands.'
After the decision had been made, the leaders of the Cursed faction had been called for a meeting. The crew on board the s.h.i.+p were getting restless as news was spreading about what was taking place, none of it good.
"So you plan to help out the Graylash faction and the Earthborn group?! I don't think that will go down too well with the others." Dennis stated his opinion after hearing the explanation.

"I have already sent a message to Supreme Commander Sach advising him to give up on saving every planet. We need to focus on splitting our own people, and groups into two squads. Nathan, and the two military groups that were originally put under us, you will head to help out the Earthborn planets. Nathan, as a former Head General I trust you to do as you see fit. Go now!"
As the shots. .h.i.t the s.h.i.+elds the whole s.h.i.+p shook a few times from the great power.
"What's happening? Aren't they humans, why are they attacking us?" s.h.i.+ro asked. Sil, who was standing next to him suddenly noticed something, and his body started to shake. It was the first time s.h.i.+ro had ever seen his friend like that.
A large man stood in front of a hall of hundred people, his diamond-like armour s.h.i.+ning menacingly. His audience didn't look particularly happy to see him, although it could have something to do with their own sad state. They all looked small, malnourished, un-energised and in general a bit lost.
"Today's your lucky day. Those people took something very precious from me and I've come to get it back. You are not to kill any blonde haired people you see on the s.h.i.+p. Doing so will mean that I will make your already miserable existence even worse!"
"However, as for the rest, they must be punished for what they have done! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for you all. Depending on your performance, I will free you from this place. You will no longer have to remain on my s.h.i.+p and I promise you that our paths will never cross again. As a nice little extra bonus, whoever can subdue this son of mine, will receive rewards that will allow you to live like a king for the rest of your lives!"
A picture of Sil was being displayed in front of them. Hearing this, the eyes of the hundred or so people started to light up, hope visibly returning to them. A chance to escape this living h.e.l.l where they were being treated worse than any prisoners. No matter what, they would be fighting for their freedom… or die trying!
