2047 AD, 205,000 Kilometers from Invid Occupied Earth.
A REF Icarus-Class Command Carrier, three Tokugawa-Class Cruisers and seven Garfish-Class Destroyers were escorted by three REF Exeter-Class Escorts, two REF Warrior-Class Destroyers and seven VAF-8 Alpha Fighters and VBF-2 Beta Fighters linked together in a Legios mode were traveling towards the planet of their heritage from their enemies, the Invid. With them were weapons, personnel and supplies needed for the Resistance Fighters upon Earth and the experimental soldiers codenamed Project Achilles. Within the laboratory of the Icarus-Class Command Carrier named Lone Star, a pair of twin baby boys were calling for their nurse and "adopted" mother.
'Kassan, Kassan' They called in their immature minds for they have the ability to transmit messages within the human mind.
"Coming dears." Their nurse called and fed them the formula specifically made for these two twins. Then an aged man wearing an Admiral's uniform with a white streak on the side of his head enters the laboratory and looks upon the nurse with disappointed eyes and gently shakes his head.
"You know, you are spoiling them Kisara. They are not suppose to rely on anyone you know." The Admiral said.
"Don't be so fussy about it. They're fine now and 'you only have one childhood' as the saying goes." The nurse named Kisara told the aging Admiral.
"Yes but they are the final product of Project Achilles. They are suppose to be bread to become the perfect soldiers. They do not need a mother."
"Well they seem to disagree. You can't just have a child without a mother or a father and they chose me to be their mother."
"Just try to make sure you don't accidentally mess up their genetic programming. It took us many years to implant all of the REF Military Data into their DNA."
"Don't worry. I won't make them saps like you were."
"I am not a sap!" Kisara and the twins giggled as the Admiral abruptly left the room.
"I hope you find yourself more than a soldier when you two grow up." She tickled the chins of the twins and the babies laughed. Inside the bridge of the Lone Star, the Admiral sits at his seat and was handed a report on a Data Pad. He views it and gives a satisfied nod and hands it back to his assistant.
"How long will it be until we reach Earth Space." The Admiral asked the navigator in front of him.
"Approximately three hours and thirty-nine minutes at current velocity."
"Excellent. Keep us at this velocity." He turns toward his communications officer. "Tell the fleet to begin battle preparations when we are at two hours and thirty minutes."
"Why so early Admiral?" The communications officer asked.
"That's the edge of the Invid's Defense perimeter. I want to be ready for any enemy attack." Then the alarm went off. "What's going on?"
"Sir, we have five Invid Mollusk Troop Carriers and a Scorpion Assault Carrier approaching our direction at vector 12 Degrees X and 78 Degrees Y and are at a distance of 12 kilometers and their velocity is estimated to be 145 Km/h." The Scanner Ensign reported.
"Get the fleet prepared for a skirmish. Get the DS-1 Pinpoint-Barrier System on line and activate all weapon systems." The rest of the fleet were preparing for a skirmish with an enemy force. All fighters were launched and joined the escort squadron and the weapon system were online. The Invid fleet notices the sudden thread of the REF fleet and so they launched their squadrons of Attack Scouts, Combat Troopers, Space Troopers, Strike Units, and Assault Battloids and soon both fleets were caught in fierce face-to-face combat. The REF fleet fired their main laser cannons and obliterated half of the Invid Fleet and the Invid Fleet heavily damaged two of the three Tokugawa-Class Cruisers, four of the seven Garfish-Class Destroyers, the two Warrior-Class Destroyers and one of the three REF Exeter-Class Escorts. The Veritech fighters were caught in a life and death struggle with Invid mecha since the Exeter-Class Escort closes to them was unable to fend off the Invid mecha. The other Exeter-Class Escorts accelerated to aid the veritech fighters from the Invid. The Veritech Fighters of this fleet had an advantage over the Invid Mecha for only they had the PP-2 Mecha Pinpoint-Barrier System installed in their Veritechs. After a grueling firefight, the Invid were destroyed and most of the fleet desperately in need of repairs. The Admiral decides that they should stop momentarily for mid-space repairs with several space equipped VR-112 Samson Engineering/Support Cyclones to make the repairs.
Though they were able to repair the external damages from the previous skirmish, many of the turrets were heavily damaged and had to be replaced and since REF high command predicted this problem had given the fleet some replacement turrets to add to replace the already scrapped turrets. After all the repairs were done, the fleet resumed their course towards the Earth. Time has passed and the fleet finally reached the perimeter of the Invid Defense when something went terribly wrong.
"What's wrong this time?" The Admiral said in annoyance.
"Sir, the hyperspace fold system of the entire fleet has gone haywire. We are about to fold in less then three minutes."
"Get someone to stop that fold. We're too close to the Earth to have problems now." The Lone Star Personnel scrambled to stop the fold sequence that had abruptly began but were too late. The entire fleet folded into hyperspace and were never seen in their universe again. Kisara held the twins protectively against her body, knowing that something will happen to them after they folded to who knows where.
180 AC, near the orbital Lagrange Colony of L1-1X247999.The Earth Sphere Alliance Space Forces have located a Rebel base upon a colony and were met with a group of Rebel Space Leos. The Alliance launch their Mobile Suits and were about to attack until a bright light blinded them.
"What's going on? What is it?" Before an answer came to the commander, the bright light then streaked towards the Earth and destroying the Rebel group with it. "Get someone to get a reading on it and fast!"
Orbital Alliance Surveillance outpost.
The soldiers aboard the orbital station were becoming board, despite their efforts to entertain themselves. One soldier was yawning when he has an odd reading on his monitor.
"What the- Sir, could you come over here please." As the commander reached the monitor, a violent vibration rattled the outpost. Outside, the yellow streak was a few meters from striking the outpost down in a blaze of fury.
"What was that?" The Commander ordered.
"I don't know, all I'm getting are odd readings. I can't make heads or tails out of them."
Cinq Kingdom at early evening at the Peacecraft Palace.
The six-year-old Milliardo Peacecraft and the thirteen-year-old Treiz Kushrenada looked up towards the sky and find an odd yellow light. Katrina Peacecraft holding the baby Relena Peacecraft and Francis Peacecraft walked up to the two young boys.
"What are you two looking at?" Before the two boys could answer, the yellow light streaked across the sky following a large sonic boom which shook the foundation of the palace. Little Relena looked up and giggled at the pretty light in the sky.
Country Road in France outside of Paris.
A traveling circus were approaching the city of Paris when they saw a bright flash of yellow light streak the sky that outshone the lights of Paris. A small boy was being held by his sister and looked up at the sky and watched in wonder at the streak of yellow light.
"Is it an omen?" The father asked.
"I don't know. I never seen anything like it."
Northern Japanese Countryside.
A lone mercenary was camping inside a forgotten valley and started to cook his bacon and beans when he saw a streak of light crash into the valley in a fireball some distance from the mercenary, but he can still feel the rush of the air pushed away from the impact site. He quickly ran towards whatever that crashed and had to wait until the smoke cleared and what he found was unbelievable. Within the crater were spaceships in which most hulls were either damaged or burned. He stepped into the crater and walked around and he reached a large ship and he decided to go inside. Finding a airlock, he entered the spaceship, not knowing what to find. Then after several minutes of wondering, he heard a faint sound of a baby cry and rushed towards the source of the sound. He arrived at what used to be a laboratory and he found a young baby, barely a year old, sitting up and crying at the body of a raven haired women. He walked towards the brown haired boy and the boy looked at the mercenary with tearful eyes.
"Is she your mother?" He didn't expected a response, and yet the child nodded. He didn't move the body, but lifted the child to his arms and walked away from the body. Unknown to the mercenary, the brother of the brown haired boy had awaken from his unconsciousness and pushed himself from under the women. He looks back at his nurse and started to shed tears.
The mercenary brought the child to his campsite, not sure of what to do with the child. The child looked at the mercenary, not sure what to make of the stranger who just taken him from the ship of his birth.
'Are you a soldier?' The mercenary whipped out his rifle and searched the area for a voice. 'Are you a soldier?' The mercenary was still looking for the voice and he kneeled at the child.
"Hey kid, did you hear anything just know?" The boy shook his head and then stared at him. "What?"
'Are you a soldier?' The mercenary was taken aback. The child spoke to him in his mind.
"How's you do that?"
'I always spoke this way since I was born.' The mercenary was totally freaked from this small child.
"Can you read minds?" The child shook his head.
'Are you a soldier?' The child asked again in his mind.
"In a way, yes I am." The mercenary finally answered the child's question.
