The Starjammer…IN SPACE!!!

Kl'rt has called everyone to the bridge.

"We are approaching where Galactus is held, and I have received word from Ronan. Captain, if you will allow me to download this transmission…"

He holds up a small holo-box, which the Starjammers check for anything nasty, then put on the screen. A large blueprint of a ship emerges into the room. It reminds one of the opening sequence of Star Wars, where the Star Destroyer went on for ever and ever.

"For comparison, the Starjammer's blueprints are also in this shot, to scale," he says. "Right here."

He points at, effectively, an inch square dot.

"The situation is worse than we feared. Galactus is being used to power a weapon of universal destruction. If we do not free him soon, the entire universe will be destroyed. The Skrull and Shi'ar Empires, Terra, everything. Thanos believes he will somehow live through this and that Death will be pleased with him. Ronan is on the ship, preparing a beacon so that we may beam directly onto it. Also, I am trailing six moderate sized asteroids, which should be sufficient for the demands of the young Terran. We will reach the ship soon. Any questions?"

He’s interrupted by an immense rocketing explosion. Warning claxons go off, and something else appears on the viewscreen.

Thanos, holding an orange staff, with flames on either end of it.

“Thank you for bringing the last Herald to me,” he intones, and the staff begins to flare up.

I take a look at the staff and immediately think Firelord. Saw him once or twice on the frontlines, but I'm not entirely sure when he was captured. If Thanos is operating his staff, there may be some credence to Ronan's belief that he's been siphoning off the Poswer Cosmsic after all.

Everyone starts beaming.

Nico, Roxanne, Curt, Adam, Mike, and Rapt appear in a cargo bay, faced with a large blue man in armor with a massive hammer. There's the immediate question…how exactly was this guy stealthing around the ship?

Meanwhile…on the Starjammer…another hit from Thanos.

Ch'od yells, "Beg pardon, Lady, but that took out our ability to transport…"

Kl'rt is immediately out the airlock, with Apex following him.

Thanos appears to be momentarily distracted by the headbutt, enough to allow Apex to start to move away. Thanos blasts at the Starjammer again, and a weak invisible shield takes the brunt of it, as Kl'rt slowly moves back into the fight. It's clear that the Super Skrull is on his last legs, but he stretches to grab Thanos as well, and move him slightly away from Apex, who is able to break off a little more.

"You have irritated me for the last time, Skrull," intones Thanos, and just like that…Kl'rt is disintegrated.

I focused on clustering as much light as was out there, ambient and spreading out from stars in all directions. If I managed this, then there was possible that none of it would ever reach its destination. I could live with depriving people of light if it gave a moment’s respite.

I tried to amass it into the largest wave that I could manage, and then tried to slam it into Thanos. I didn’t expect it to do much, but I intended to wrap it all around Thanos and then to constrict it. At the least, I thought it might give him a moment’s pause. If I managed any of it at all.

I wasn’t sure if the range was going to be problematic, either. I never really tried things at range. But there should be enough light out there traveling from stars that it wouldn’t really matter…

I really don’t like using my powers like this… but a blade is hardly going to affect Thanos. I have my doubts about this affecting him.

I turned to Nadia.

"I just had to try something before I die. Doesn't quite seem a fitting enough punishment for me… normal death. All of you…" I cut off and looked away.

"Looks like I'll never find out if I'm real, huh?" I grinned, trying to think of something other than the impending fate of everyone around me. Anything else.

The light distracts Thanos, and holds him in place briefly. Then, the Starjammer plows into Thanos, and explodes. The ship rocks slightly, and Mike can feel the death of Nadia, Lisa, Kl'rt and the Starjammers. Kl'rt a little earlier, but I forgot.

Thanos is…still standing, but considerably shaken.

"Herald…I will see you perish…"

I'm mad about more things than I can count, really, and I'm taking it out on anything that gets in our way.

I hope of my platform and reform it - it's not a lot, not enough to make another Golem, but it is enough to make a construct of Nadia. I mold it into a perfect sculpture of 'Lady Osmosis', and send it after the bugs in our path.

The corridor is claustrophobic. Everyone barely managed to get in in time, and if the GM had not needed to speak to his boss for a minute, they wouldn't have.

"DETONATION IN ONE MINUTE."

As Adam stands helpless against the bug hordes, he remembers how it felt when Nico told him that he was a hero. It felt really good, better than any thing he ever had felt on Earth. After finding out he died a hero, he could honestly say he wasn't afraid of death anymore, and now that he looked at all his friends fighting the near infinite waves of insects… All that was going through his mind was that he'd like to feel that way again. Now's as good a time as any.

Freaktada runs and jumps into the core room, and locks the door behind him. He then moves to release the core, but isn't sure how. He looks through the glass to Chi for assistance.

The worst part of it all, she thought, was that she had NEVER picked a successor for herself back on Earth. Who would lead them now? Who would save them? She had competent people working for her there, but they weren't on her level…

She pulled herself up a little. She couldn't feel her legs… Glancing back, she saw that she didn't actually have any anymore. All she could see was a lot of blood. Her legs had been ripped off.

How disgusting…

There were a lot of thoughts racing through her head. Perfection, loyalty, darkness, Wildfire, sacrifice, pride, leadership, Emperor, Adam… Though her vision was blurry, she could see what Adam was doing… and she didn't like it. Using the last of her strength, she tried lifting into the air and flying straight through the walls of the core room. She wasn't going to let him die again… She knew she didn't have much longer, but she only needed to give the others a chance to save him.

In the end, she hoped she'd be good enough after all…

Nicolette was more than confused. It wasn't that she had a problem with people randomly hugging her, but it was still a little disconcerting… especially because of his position. She decided it was best to simply hug him back and pay close attention to what the others were saying.

Epilouge:

“Well, I guess this is how it ends.”

Nephy stands back to back with the imperial consort, Rapt. The flow of bugs had stopped momentarily, due to the absolutely huge mound of insect body parts blocking the entrance.

Rapt: “Where did the others get to? We need to get them back! It’s all lost without them!”

Nephy: “Well, we did save THIS universe. That’s always something to look forward to. Not that we’ll be among the living that much longer. Haa…. Sorry Joseph.”

As she says this, the entire ship starts rumbling. Cables can be heard snapping as a titan shrugs off his restraints. Warning Klaxon's ring as the entire ship is torn apart.

Rapt: “Well, maybe Dillon got them. In any case, there’s nothing to do now besides wait. I can’t survive a Vacuum, can you?”

Nephy: “Sure.”

Rapt: “What? You can?”

Nephy: “Yes, I’ll make sure we don’t die from a vacuum. Now, when Galactus does whatever he’s thinking, I doubt he’ll notice us in the giant explosion.”

A Crimson envelops them, blocking out everything. Nephy is making sure it’s very hard, so they can hardly even hear the sound of a ship falling apart around their ears.

Nephy: “So Rapt… We’re alone and probably going to die… Don’t suppose you want to…”

Rapt: “No.”

Nephy: “Hmm? Should I be offended?”

Rapt: “Not really. I just don’t-"

"You may drop that Barrier Terrain. You have been placed under my protection.

"Who?"

"I am the Silver Surfer. Please hurry, I cannot be sure what Lord Galactus will do now."

Nephy drops the barrier and stares. It is indeed the Silver surfer, riding atop his board. He looks very much worse for wear, tiny cracks appearing in his form, but still very powerful. Behind him stand Terrax and Sky-walker, holding Ronin and Nicolette respectively.

"We owe you Terrains a dept of gratitude. Our best effort will be made too-

"Where is Apex? Where is my Herald?"

In the distance, Galactus can be seen standing. His cosmic Energy returned, he strikes quite a intimidating pose, even if that hat thing he wears. Firelord approaches, holding a staff still grasped by Thanos's severed hand.

"Dead, lord Galactus. I saw his body by Thanos, the Mad Titan,

"Oh. Shit. I had a really good line too…"

"We should be going Terrains. I'm afraid this will get very messy in the near future."

As The Surfer retreats, Galactus's booming voice can still be heard.

"Whatever, I don't care anymore. I'm just going to blow up the fleet now. Damn it was a good one."

Nephy: "Wow… We're alive. Boy am I glad you said no."

Rapt: "But what about the past? Did it work?"

Nephy: "Well, we can only hope. Who knows? Maybe in the meantime, we can do something to help this world too. Galactus is free, we're alive."

And with that, they ride off, barley missing the Galactus wave. What became of Nephy and Rapt? Well, I doubt anyone will visit this universe anyway, so who cares?
