In a Timely Fashion
May 20th, 2223Session 153: Invasion of the Fourth Kind
The Alternate Unit invades the British
Isles in an attempt to learn more about the condition. A mysterious pilot named
"Wind" is assigned to them and seems to have amazing skills unlike anything
they've seen, allowing them to get past the defenses of the city and into it.
Once there, they quickly begin to fight their way through Chiere and 5th Column
patrols, trying to find anything that could help them start an underground
resistance. In the end, they manage to start something, agreeing to meet again
in a few weeks to work on the group - in arming them. As they move to escape,
though, they come across a Super Chiere - who is stronger than all of them put
together. Wind manages, though, to pull them out before it can kill them, but
it's obvious next time they'll have to be better prepared.
May 27th, 2222Session 154: The Time Factor
It seems a secret project has been undergoing
development by a Dr. Ezekiel. The project is to develop a time machine before
the 5th Column does. However, what exactly does this imply? Especially since
Snipe gave the go ahead to build it before he left months ago? And how does it
tie into a bunch of skeletons, centuries old, buried in a mine shaft? Buried, in
fact, with Ire's ID badge.
June 6th, 2223Session 155: To The 5th Power
Once again invading the British Isles, the unit
prepares to destroy a facility they think is helping in the creation of Chiere.
As they begin to inflitrate it, though, Phirax encounters his brother, Tobias
Xanatos, who is now working for the 5th Column. As the siblings fight each
other, Ire leads the others into the heart of the Chiere facility where they
manage to set up the bombs, only to face a Super Chiere, who isn't intent on
leaving them alone. As a huge battle breaks out between them and the Chiere, the
team is forced to retreat after the facility is destroyed. Once again, they've
won a crucial victory, but just barely. And with many injuries. Plus Phirax vows
to find Tobias again, should they meet.
June 12th, 2223Session 156: Diamondback - the First Time Traveler
Dr. Ezekiel goes to use his
time machine finally, with Professor Carter - Diamondback, the volunteer to go.
As the machine sends him into the past, though, the Alt Team is forced to defend
the lab against the 5th Column, who shows up to try to steal the machine. And
they've sent a Super Chiere in order to do it. Ire, vowing to defeat one of them
- one way or another - leads his team into battle and they manage to finally
succeed, after sustaining major injuries. And Diamondback, who returns from his
time traveling, has aged many years. McCabe pulls the plug on the time machine
and orders Ezekiel to dismantle it.
April 21st, 2223Session 157: Underground Resistance
The Alternate Unit once again heads to the
British Isles, this time to supply the resistance they are making with weapons.
However, once they arrive, they learn that there is a traitor in the resistance
- one Tobias Xanatos. As they try to stop Tobias from revealing the location of
the resistance and bringing their fragile plans to an end, Phirax steps up,
along with Pope and Dahok, to stop him once and for all. In the end, only one
brother will walk away and the fragile resistance survives.
April 28th, 2223Session
158: The Moving Hands of Time Part 1
Ezekiel, refusing to dismantle his
time machine, prepares to use it one more time. And he's going to change history
to his liking. Slasher and McCabe warn the Alternate Unit that if he succeeds in
changing history, it will be like wiping out their entire reality and killing
everyone in it to adjust for the new one, because it's impossible to just change
the timeline. Ire and the others move to stop Ezekiel, but as they leap into the
time portal after him, they find themselves during the Galactic War. And Ezekiel
is trying to kill President Dominator, deciding he's a focal enough point that
if he dies before the Alliance wins the war, history will be forever changed.
Teaming up with Garland, the Alternate Unit manages to stop Ezekiel, but Ezekiel
makes another jump, further into the past, and the team has no choice but to
follow him, even though it means they can never go home again - since the people
in their time won't know where they've gone.
159: The Moving Hands of Time Part 2
Ezekiel has jumped back in time to
the point hours before the Tsivrixsh Fleet bombed Earth and made it wasteland it
is today. The team must fight the urge to alert Earth what is about to happen
and change the timeline. And they must stop Ezekiel from doing the same, lest
everything be changed forever. But can they fight the desire for a better
future? Or will it lead to more sorrow?
160: The Moving Hands of Time Part 3
Having jumped further into the
past, Ezekiel leads the Alternate Team to the time of the Year-Long War. And
he's removed key members of the Hunters from the timeline. The Alternate Unit
must somehow defeat him on the Hunter Station and retrieve the missing members
while not being detected and changing history.
161: The Moving Hands of Time Part 4
Now faced with the Maverick Wars,
the Alternate Unit must somehow prevent Ezekiel from killing X and changing the
timeline where Sigma would have won the Maverick Wars. But, can they survive an
era of bloodshed and destruction, all the while helping the Maverick Hunters and
trying to stop Ezekiel?
162: The Moving Hands of Time Part 5
Ezekiel teams up with Dr. Wily in
the era of Mega Man, hoping to aid the mad scientist's take over of the world.
Can Ire and the others team up with the legendary Mega Man and stop Ezekiel and
Wily's plans for world domination? Or will the evil duo change history to their
163: The Moving Hands of Time Part 6
The last stop. Ezekiel, defeated
with Dr. Wily, makes one blind jump into the past before his time machine
breaks. And the Alternate Unit follows right after him - right to the wild west.
Now in the 1800's, they find themselves having to survive the Western world and
stop Ezekiel from disrupting the activities there. All the while not revealing
themselves or their technology to the natives. Yet, according to the skeletons
found in the mineshaft, there is no turning back for them. Or, ... is
