* Slasher sits down beside DS listening to him talk
[DeathStar] EarthGovCommandr: Well, SIR, our forces here have their forces cornered and checked, you could say. But they have a base to the right that can reinforce them. We can't spare anyone to take it out.
[Wiendigo] Trust me, you're a runt, and you'll always be a runt.
[DeathStar] Then that's what we'll do. Come along, Hunters....

[Dominator] NRP: Head for DS's group?
* DeathStar blasts an alien
[DeathStar] NRP: Yes

[Slasher] Ariel lets go
[DeathStar] Comm] Get in here NOW
* Slasher grabs Ariel and heads to where the others are
[Garland] NRP: much to his dismay...... remember the TCT crossover?
*** Cold-Snap is now known as Lactose
[Xevil] Normally, I would agree with you, Commander Death Star....it would be impossible.
[Lactose] NRP: Just watching
[Xevil] Who cares?
* Slasher enters the room where everyone else is with Ariel
[Slasher] What the....
[Ariel] Not HIM again...
[Xevil] It seems that if two times have a strong bond....where two times have more connections than any other time...one can jump back and forth...once.
* Garland waits in the dining room
[DeathStar] Once....that's nice world domination plans there...
[Dominator] ... Interesting... So, you';ve decided to exploit it, I'd gather
* Garland gets bored and looks for food
[Xevil] Of course. This time's special time is....2110...
[Dominator] NRP: With Xevil confronted us, Garland?
[Garland] NRP: I'm in the other room, DS's orders, remember?
[Xevil] We'll be going back and crushing Earth while you Hunters are in bondage.
[DeathStar] Comm] GARLAND, GET IN HERE!
[Ariel] Where's Cheryl when you need her...
[Xevil] --But I got a better idea now.
* Xevil raises hand and the time machine turns on
* Garland had just found what looked like an apple
[Slasher] Oh great
[Xevil] I'll BANISH you into 2110....

* Xevil fades from their view
* Ariel acts over dramatic
* Slasher loses his grip and flies into the portal
* DeathStar hits a tree
[Garland] B-BUT I WANTED TO FINISH EATING FIRST!!!!!! *flies in*
* Slasher flies out the other end and rolls into DS
[DeathStar] ARGH!! SLASHER!! DAMNIT!
* DeathStar throws him off
* Slasher sits up
* Dominator lands on the ground, then jumps to his feet
[Slasher] DS...CS is dead
* DeathStar leaps off the tree, noticing it's all busted up, and sees they are in the cemetary of X and Zero...or what will be
[Lactose] NRP and PS and MS and GS . . .
* Garland lands hard on the ground, the apple hitting him in the head
* DeathStar blinks at Slasher
[Ariel] If this is 2110...
* Garland jumps up
[Slasher] Guess you don't care
[DeathStar] This is NOT 2110....it can't be...
[Dominator] What do you mean?
* Garland yawns
[DeathStar] I just don't believe it....time travel is impossible...
[Slasher] I wonder if I'm still being created in the vile Corsec HQ
[DeathStar] CorSec hasn't been created yet, idiot.
[Slasher] Hmm, then I guess not
[Ariel] I can't remember where I would be...
[Garland] ......It's a foolish thing to do to send us back, rather than to the future.
[Ariel] Yeah, what if we can change the past?
[Lactose] NRP: What year are we normally in?
* DeathStar walks towards the right
[DeathStar] NRP: Dom will answer that for us
[Dominator] NRP: Uh...
* DeathStar nearby a tree shimmers and then returns to normal
* Dominator follows DS, glancing at the tree
[Slasher] Hmm...maybe Ariels right, maybe we should try to save X1 and Zero
* DeathStar looks around
[Dominator] ... This could be an elaborte hoax...
[Slasher] It could be
[DeathStar] Probably. But...my scanner went off the scale...
* Slasher walks over to a tree and taps on it
* Garland doesn't care what year it is, he wasnt even born in this time
* DeathStar the tree taps...like a tree!
[Dominator] NRP: 2180
[Slasher] Hmm, seems to be real
[DeathStar] Alright, the HQ is that way.
* DeathStar points at the large building in front of them
[Dominator] Is it wise to head there?
* Garland yawns
* Slasher heads towards it
[DeathStar] Why not?
[Ariel] I wasn't a maverick hunter in 2110 was i?
[Garland] I was not even thought of by my parents at this time.
* Ariel scratches her head
[Slasher] You probably weren't even a dirt thought in your creators minds
[Dominator] We could run into our old selves for one thing...
[Slasher] I won't so don't worry
[Ariel] I wouldn't reconize myself _
[DeathStar] That would be nice. For one thing I would tell myself to kill Zero before he went nuts.
* DeathStar notices the tower nearby is totally destroyed
[DeathStar] ....Too late. The X/Zero battle must have already begun..
[Dominator] If that did happen, what would happen to us? This is one of the reasons time travel is, or should, be impossible...
[Slasher] Should we go watch a famous battle
[Dominator] ... Yes... *remembers*
[Ariel] Can we stop them in Siberia?
[Garland] ...... let history take it's place.
[DeathStar] ....Stop them....that's a thought.
* DeathStar notices a small, rusted down old shuttle nearby
[Slasher] We could change history tho, we might not even be created
[Dominator] A shuttle...
* DeathStar shrygs it off
[Slasher] What are the odds of that
[DeathStar] That's your problems. I was already around
* Dominator glnaces at DS
* DeathStar enters the shuttle
* Slasher heads towards the shuttle
[Ariel] Alittle... conveinent...
* Slasher phases inside of it
* DeathStar powers it up.
* Ariel follows DS inside
* Dominator follows DS
[Slasher] How quaint
[Dominator] Haven't been in this model for a long time...
* Ariel thinks for a min
[DeathStar] .....You shouldn't have ever been in it this model
[Ariel] You know... I must have been around during this time...
[Dominator] ... It does seem older than most even at this time...
[Garland] DeathStar, if you did alter the past, you may be a different type of person, therefore, you'd have altered yourself anyway.
[DeathStar] This thing was around the 2090's...it was proven unsafe...
* DeathStar takes off
[DeathStar] Like I care.
[Ariel] Um... oh well
[Dominator] .... Definatly not one I actually flew in...
[Ariel] I can fly anyways so I'm okay
* DeathStar nearby a cloud shimmers some
[Ariel] What was that?
[Dominator] Unless, of course, the unstability had it explode, Ariel
[Garland] ......I never said you did, and I do not care about you either.
[DeathStar] You know the "big bang theory"?
[Wiendigo] NRP: Back
* Dominator narrows eyes at the shimmering
* Wiendigo slides out from the shadows
[Dominator] ... Yes...
* DeathStar they appear over the Wastelands a few seconds later
* Wiendigo stops and looks around confused
* DeathStar or what WILL be
* DeathStar looks down at the frozen grounds
[Wiendigo] Someone mind telling me where the hell we are?
[DeathStar] You mean WHEN.
[Slasher] 2110 or we think we are
* Dominator glances down, recognizing what some spots will be
* Wiendigo shifts his eyebrows
* DeathStar up ahead is the Maverick Base Zero was using. On the pads are the nuclear missiles.
[Wiendigo] I gotta lay off the tequila next time...
* Dominator mutters, 1"Looks much like it did when reploids where exiled, and I wanderedhere..."
[Ariel] Hey! I can see my...
* Ariel stops
[Dominator] DS... What are we planning to do?
[Garland] Why did Xevil send us back in time anyway....? It would have been wiser to send us forward.
[Slasher] The nukes
[Dominator] NRP: .... *glances at Ariel*
[DeathStar] ....Something's not right....*Scans the nukes*
[DeathStar] I'm not getting ANY energy readings from them.
[Dominator] He said that this was the only time that could be reached, do to some phenominon...
[Ariel] That's wierd... about the nukes too
[Slasher] Garland unless he either wants us killed in the nuke blast or he knows whats gonna happen if we stop the battle
[Wiendigo] Essentially, we're already screwing with time, so if we continue to, time will be shit upon, and we'll be the cause of it.
[Dominator] ... Interesting.,.. We haven't seen anyone, but that's not suprising, since we've only been to a destroyed base and a cemetary
* DeathStar nearby to the west something else shimmers.
[Garland] ....... thats exactly why I say we dont tamper with time.
[Slasher] What the heck
* Ariel scratches her head, wondering why she almost said that.
[DeathStar] Everything that shimmers is to the west...
* Slasher looks towards the shimmer
[Slasher] MAybe we should head for the west
* DeathStar stops the shuttle in mid air
[DeathStar] So...what does that say...
[Ariel] Reminds me of a holographic system...
* DeathStar alarms go off as the nuclear missiles explode on the pad and the blast wave heads for them
[DeathStar] Oh damn...
[Slasher] GO GO GO
* DeathStar begins to reverse the shuttle and screams
[DeathStar] WHICH WAY!?
[Ariel] Uh oh...
[Dominator] Full speed away, maybe!
[Dominator] ... I don't care... West!
[Ariel] up and away!
[DeathStar] THIS THING CAN'T GO ANY HIGER!
* DeathStar turns it and heads west
