Just Another Alternate Universe...
« on: April 09, 2020, 01:54:56 PM »

<<Cydonia, Mars>>

Rear Admiral Sieglinde Wettin finished her breakfast and headed through the tunnels to the dig site. Terra finally had a few years of peace after smashing the invading Vanir fleet at the Battle of Terra. This gave them the opportunity to explore the oddities in the Sol System. She had pulled a lot of strings to get this duty because she liked to play in the dirt like Daniel Jackson and her El'dari husband Elladan. Behind her she could hear the delighted laughter of her five-year-old twins as they romped with their 'Aunt Vala'. She shuddered at the thought of the trouble those three could get into.

The Battle of Terra had led to Disclosure. El'dari, Terran, Tokra, Free Jaffa, Keltic, Wraith and Asgardian ships had fought Vanir ships in a massive battle above the North Atlantic, in full sight of the populations of New York, Boston, Washington and Baltimore and the wrecks of starships had littered the countryside for miles.

The seven years since the battle had brought a lot of political changes and turmoil. The Western nations had formed the Terran Federation and put strict conditions on who had voting rights in the General Assembly and the Federation Senate. Most of the Third World, Russia and China did not qualify.

Upon landing the expedition had put up huge domes to house the expedition. Her 5th Battle Squadron, with SMS Bismarck as flag, along with the four Essex-class fleet carriers of the 3rd Carrier Squadron and the 12th Destroyer Flotilla of eight Tribal-class destroyers orbited the planet in support and also as high guard. There were still a few pirates lurking in the Oort Cloud.

The expedition had upon landing and examination detected what could be an entry into The Face. An inflatable dome had immediately been erected with tunnels to connect it to the main working area. The scientists were in ecstasy over the artifacts they had found so far. What they were trying to puzzle out was why somebody had popped nukes over Cydonia Mensea and Galaxia Chaos about ten-thousand years ago, then dove an asteroid into the South Pole, blowing the atmosphere and oceans into space and creating the huge canyon known as Valles Marineris and the Tharsis Bulge.

Among the political changes on Terra was that Germany was now a federal empire. Her father was now the Emperor of Germany and she was now Crown Princess and Queen of Saxony. The French had swept the Bonapartes back into power. Her honorary 'aunt' Julie Bonaparte was now the current Empress.

Terra was getting used to the inflow of new technologies. The economy had undergone a drastic change when the energy companies had collapsed and the world did not  need oil and coal energy any more. The Arab states had gone ballistic when they had been told that they could go pound sand. There had been quite a bit of terrorist activity until the Federation had invaded Iran and rounded up and executed their leaders.

Linde headed for the dig site, hearing Vala's scream of outrage behind her. "You brats! If I catch you I'll sell you to the gou'ald"! She emerged from the tunnel to see Daniel and Elladan care clearing off and documenting an area that looked like a ingress hatch with a whisk broom. The writing on it was in Ancient, instructions for operation. As Daniel passed his hand over a section, a control panel lit up. "It just went live", Elladan said.

just then her communicator chirped. "Admiral, this is Bismarck. Every building in the area just lit up like a Christmas tree." Linde made her decision quickly and spoke into her communicator. "Vala, grab the kids and head for the gate. Cate, round up everyone  and head for the gate. We're evacuating." Cate MacGregor was now a colonel and commanded a special forces brigade. She was also the security chief for the expedition. The two women acknowledged. "Bismarck, beam me up".

Linde materialized on her flag bridge. She turned to her Science Officer, Jason Bennett. "Talk to me".

"Every installation on Mars just powered up. Including a few we didn't know about. They are all pressurizing and heating up. The Face is so big it will take a week."

Linde frowned as she sat in her command chair. She pressed a button and the faces of her squadron commanders appeared om the main view screen in front of her. Franz von Hipper, commanding her battleships, Diane Spencer, commanding her carriers, Sarah Davidson, Captain (D) of her destroyers. That meant that as well as commanding Maori, she also commanded the other seven destroyers in the flotilla. Mesa McCaffrey, her CAG on board Essex. "I'm going to gate back to report to SGC. Franz, you're in charge". She got up, headed to thw gate, and then stepped through.
