Space Faction
by Thomas Mariani View author's profile page

Overview


A galaxy ravaged by war. Underdogs grapple for peace. One man inspires unity.

            A vicious war has plagued the various factions of The Decagon galaxy longer than most inhabitants can remember. Vince Starflight is a General of the Crystal Resistance, a faction intent on ending the war and proclaiming their authority. In the heat of battle, Vince faces a no-win scenario, costing hundreds of lives.

      Battle-scarred and weary, he volunteers for demotion, blaming himself for the overwhelming loss to the people of Darcya. His people. Contemplating the costs of bloodshed, Vince cultivates a plan for peace: Project Unity.

      This proposition comes with many dangers - punishment, capture, or even death- but now is the time to make a stand. Along with his comrades, Zenith, Ingrid, and Lalo, they reach out to other faction leaders, hopeful for a ceasefire. They establish a meeting for unity with the leaders of the Duke Faction; however, while en route to the neutral planet of Xima, the Duke and Duchess disappear. Vince discovers there may be a recreant within their cause.

Inside a galaxy saturated with enemies, will peace prove more grueling than war? Or will their call for unity resonate and foster more allies than they bargained for?

Description


The Decagon galaxy has been at war for generations. This star system is home to ten planets, whose factions inherited the torch of combat. Among them is the planet Darcya; which, supports the faction known as the Crystal Resistance. Their mission: End the war and proclaim their leadership over the Decagon.

General Vince Starflight leads this faction, well respected and wise beyond his years. During an assignment, Vince faces a no-win scenario, and hundreds die, leaving him to contemplate the bloodshed of years gone by and those to come. The battle-scarred and weary General sets his sights on a peaceful future.

And, from the ashes of his guilt, the idea for a new faction is born: Project Unity. Vince steps down from his command to plant the seeds of his secret revolution. Unfortunately, his absence gives rise to those who crave violence. While on another mission for the Crystal Resistance, Starflight intends to gather and hide weapons for Project Unity; however, the plan goes awry and forces him to confide in two comrades: Ingrid and Lalo. Although cautious, they agree to an alliance.

Meanwhile, the formerly obedient soldier, Jax, goes rogue. Thirsty for bloodshed, he defies orders, ruthlessly executing captives by firing squad. A spark of hope for the new faction arises; the leaders of the Duke faction have agreed to meet and discuss terms. On the planet of Xima, Lalo is eagerly awaiting their arrival when he discovers the Duke and Duchess have gone missing. Warriors from the Duke faction pursue Lalo, implicating him in their disappearance.

As a result, Project Unity reveals they have a traitor jeopardizing their goal.With Jax's brutality threatening to thwart their efforts and foes hidden amongst allies, the road to peace looks arduous. Nevertheless, Vince knows now is the time to make a stand.

Coexistence and harmony are hidden deep within the galaxy's past; and must become forthright once more for a prosperous future.

About the author


I am an avid science fiction fan. I remember the first movie I have watched in the movie theater was a star trek film. I have read many science fiction novels and short stories growing up. Science fiction is what bonded me and my father. We have spent many hours in a day talking about science fiction and what the future could hold. I am an IT professional to this day because of science fiction that I have read and watched growing up. It was through science fiction that peeked my interest into computer and technology. Science fiction has been part of my life. I always had a goal in becoming an author and write my own stories to share. I hope to inspire others through my stories.
