MHA builds a bypass


Recommended Posts


"People of Cybernations, your attention please," a voice said, and it was wonderful. Wonderful perfect quadrophonic sound with distortion levels so low as to make a brave man weep.

"This is Cable77 of the Mostly Harmless Alliance," the voice continued. "As you will no doubt be aware, the plans for development of the outlying regions of the Galaxy require the building of a hyperspatial express route through your star system, and regrettably several alliances are scheduled for demolition. The process will not take long. Thank you."

The PA died away.

Uncomprehending terror settled on the watching people of Planet Bob. The terror moved slowly through the gathered crowds as if they were iron fillings on a sheet of board and a magnet was moving beneath them. Panic sprouted again, desperate fleeing panic, but there was nowhere to flee to.

Observing this, the Vogons turned on their PA again. It said:

"There's no point in acting all surprised about it. All the declarations on our ally have been on display in your local planning department on the Open World Forum for days, so you've had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and it's far too late to start making a fuss about it now."

The PA fell silent again and its echo drifted off across the land. The huge ships turned slowly in the sky with easy power. On the underside of each a hatchway opened, an empty black space.

By this time somebody somewhere must have manned a radio transmitter, located a wavelength and broadcasted a message back to the Vogon ships, to plead on behalf of the planet. Nobody ever heard what they said, they only heard the reply. The PA slammed back into life again.

"The Foreign Division, We Are Perth Army, and Colossus knew what they were getting into when they declared on Sparta. Our treaty with them clearly spells out our obligations in these matters."

"Energize the demolition beams."

It's good to know that MHA only needs 3 days to get ready to counter.

We've been monitoring them for the last 3 days and getting ready is not something they did :smug:
