Armageddon chapter 6Chapter Six Buck flexed his muscles a little in order to get some feelingrestored to them. Buck and Wilma had been taken to a cell, a smallbox-shaped room with a transparent sliding door that opened onto adimly lit corridor beyond. Every so often the a couple of guards orCenturions as Buck soon discovered they were referred to would passtheir cell, pausing momentarily to look in on it's occupants to makesure they were secure. Buck would occasionally smile at them when theydid so, but the courtesy was never returned. "What do you think they're doing with Twiki and Theo?" Wilmaasked. When they had landed Centurions had surrounded their Starfighter.The ship's crew disembarked and handed over their weapons to thehorseshoe shaped group of machines standing before them with theirweapons raised. It was at that moment that another machine appeared onthe scene, gliding or scuttling serenely on legs or some otherlocom
Armageddon 2493 chapter 5Chapter Five The Officer's Club aboard the Galactica was unusually crowded.The number of warriors either on alert or on patrol was lower thannormal, reflecting the cautious approach that Commander Adama wastaking since they had detected the new Cylon Taskforce ahead of them.That suited Lieutenant Starbuck of Blue Squadron; it meant more timewith his lover, Med-Tech Cassiopeia and, more pilots around to hustlein games of Pyramid in the crew room. It was the latter exercise thatthe brash young Lieutenant, Fumerillo firmly between his teeth, wasengaged in. Three other warriors were sitting at the metallic lookingtable with him. Two of them were friends of his, Lieutenants Jolly andBojay. The third was a green cadet who had just transferred to BronzeSquadron, one of the two extra squadrons that were a legacy of theGalactica's brief encounter with the Battlestar Pegasus partway throughthe first yahren of the exodus from the Colonies.
Armageddon chapter 4Chapter Four The five occupants of the Starfighter, three human and twocybernetic, were silent as they exited the Stargate in the vicinity ofVyra. Latimer, (only an occasional Stargate user) was so preoccupiedwith his wife and friends' predicament that he didn't feel any of thequeasiness that people who didn't use Stargates that often commonlyfelt during the passage. He glanced through the front screen of thecockpit as best as he could toward the planet they were heading for.Vyra was very similar to Earth. It was roughly the same size, had asimilar land to ocean surface ratio, and an identical gravitational andmagnetic field and atmosphere. From a distance, the orb of Vyra, withit's blue oceans, white clouds and polar caps together with the greens,browns and salmons of the landmasses could be mistaken for Earth. Butthat was where the similarities between the two worlds ended. Becauseunlike Earth, it wasn't tilted on an axis
Armageddon 2493 chapter 3Chapter ThreeFrom the Adama Journals: As we prepare to mark the sixth anniversary of the beginning ofour flight from the Cylons and begin our seventh Yarhen in the cosmicwilderness, we consider the momentous events, events that bode bothgood and ill for the continuation of our journey. For it was severalweeks ago that we first stumbled upon artificial passageways in space.These passageways have already transported us thousands oflight-yahrens through space, with automated probes and sensors tellingus there are more ahead, and although there is a chance that we mayhave skipped past Earth, our hoped for destination, we feel ourcommitment to our journey renewed from swiftly traversing suchdistances. Unfortunately our enemies have also found thesepassageways. Sensors have been tracking for this past week, threeCylon Basestars, almost certainly under the command of the traitorBaltar whom I believe was rescued from exile. An exile I placed
Armageddon 2493 chapter 2Chapter Two The man in animal skins perched atop the horse with a similarly(un) dressed brunet clinging to his waist, trotted over to theorange-haired, ape creature tied to the tree. A brief debate ensuedbefore the man indicated his intentions. "It just doesn't make sense. A planet where apes evolved fromman? There's got to be an explanation somewhere," the man pointed out. "Don't look for it Taylor!" the Ape began. "You may not like whatyou find." Ignoring his pleas, the man called Taylor kicked the horseinto motion, which took them away along a stretch of beach. At theorange ape's beckoning, a group of darker skinned apes reminiscent oflarge chimpanzees came over to him. "Untie me!" commanded the orange ape. The chimpanzees dutifullycomplied with his wishes. A group of gorillas made to go after Taylorand the woman but were motioned to halt and the orange ape instructedthe gori
Armageddon 2493 chapter 1ARMAGEDDON 2493Chapter One Arthur Larson put on his Governor's robes for what was supposed tobe one of the last times and, kissing his wife, Elen goodbye, lefttheir personal quarters for the administration section of what wouldhave been once called the 'Governor's Mansion.' Larson had been theGovernor of the agricultural colony of Vyra, arguably Earth's outermostcolony for the last decade. He had known from the day he had beenoffered the appointment that he was to be the colony's last old-stylegovernor, it had been made very clear to him that Earth intended togive the colony an unprecedented degree of autonomy. Considering theplanet and it's two-hundred & fifty million inhabitants proximity (orrather lack of it) to Earth and their degree of material and logisticalindependence, the only surprise to many observers, both on Earth andVyra was that it had taken two centuries since the colony'sestablishment for autonomy to be granted.

Armageddon 2493ARMAGEDDON 2493By Stan TackettDecember, 2013A Battlestar Galactica / Buck Rogers In The 25th century crossover.Author's Note: The events are set approximately five years (yahrens?) after theBG episode 'The Hand Of God' and a year after the two-part Buck Rogersepisode 'Flight Of The War Witch.' Ignoring Buck Rogers season two asI regard it as being inferior to season one & merely a cheap Star Trekrip-off. For obvious reasons I've similarly ignored Galactica 1980.As for why I chose a crossover between these two franchises, it'sobvious. Both were developed by Glen A. Larson, (who also created BG)with similar visual effects and costumes and props. Plus by ignoringGalactica 1980 (Which it appears even Mr. Larson now does) & BuckRogers season two, you could have a crossover story that was stillcanonical. To my surprise however I've only ever come across onecrossover between the two shows and that was a satire, indeed, I'venever come
