(Okay, so I borrowed the title from Magi Nation, AND it's the name of a FanFic I write in the RW, so what?)

The setting is approximately 3 years in the future from now. The war between the United States and Iraq has ended, and now five of the world's top countries have discovered a new technology, which they dub upon their new machines as "Airships". These Goliaths and Laviathens own the sky, their capabillities near endless, it's just a matter of keeping it in the air. To save costs and Mass Produce these Airships, the Governments have made them half the size of a traditional battleship, arming them with giant gun turrets and thick hulls. But our story focuses on those who, after recieving a Mysterious package in the mail from an unnamed source, soon find themselves against these Armadas, for they are the only ones who can shield the world from the destruction and World Conquest of Britian, America, Japan, France, and Russia...

1. Your name, must be a First and Last.
2. The name of your ship, Must be something you can remember.

5. Provide a description of yourself, or a picture (link format, please.)

(Then again, I don't know anyone who would join, so let's just start.)

A chime sounded to my side. An eye opend to just a slit allowed me to see that my alarm clock was going off. Sliding my legs to the side, I pushed off and entered the Closet, my usual attire hanging from the ceiling. With a soft green carpet below, light blue walls, the occasional painting of a mountain, and Red Oak furniture, my Dorm was what you'd call, on the exquisite side of decoration.
"Gooooood morning!" a young child's voice rang.
"Gir, why did you set my alarm to go off at 4 am?" I asked.
"To see if you'd wake up." he replied.
"And am I awake now?" I asked again, this time a tone of discomfort.
"Yyyyyyyyep!" he slurred, the unmistable tone of a very young child was really getting unwelcome right now...

<OOC>Alright, I'm up for that.<OOC>

"Sir" the lieutenent snapped to attention, a firm salute already in place. I'd recruited this guy from the Holy American Empire and still I couldn't beat their habits out of him. I asked exasperatedly "What have I told you about saluting?" He dropped the attentive posture but still didn't relax. Dropping my head into my hands I asked "What is it?" His reply was concise, one good thing about his training. He said "We've reached our destination. No sign of enemy pursuit. My reply was as brief, I ordered "Good. Take us down for refuel and resupply."

(Ok, just to keep it smooth, how about we all allie and know one another, k?)

"Status report Gir." I requested.
"Your TA is nearly ready, the Weapons Research is preparing the presentation of their new weapon, the Tech Research is still working on the project, a large majority of our items sold on eBay, increasing our budget by 200 K, and we're above the Rockies." he listed, the voice emitting from each intercom as I glided across the Walkway.
"Gir, remind me to thank the Tech division for the improvement to the Magetic-Field corridoors." I asked. It really was better, now we could fly along long halls without tiring.
"They're only temporary, you know." he informed.
"Yes, and so is your aged-opinion program." I laughed.
"Huh? When are you bringing me my Chocolate Bubble-gum Slushie?" he asked.
"When you do something nice." I replied. "By the way, how many have I given you?"
"Only one." he lied.

(ok, good)

I was standing outside the harbor, it was a foggy morning, and cold too.
"Sir" ; I heard a voice coming from behind, I turned around and I saw Joey.
"Joey, you can call me Max if you want, anyway what is it?
"Sir -I sigh- um, I was spying a conversation of a australian clan"
"well I heard that they were going to attack us tomorrow in the morning, at the 1035 hours , Sir"
well , go and warn the crew of the air force , that we gonna take off at 10 o'clock in the morning and we gonna destroy that australian clan"
"yes Sir"
"call me Max"
Joey went inside the harbor and warned the crew , I entered one minute later.
In that afternoon the crew trained a little.

I ambled down the landing ramp after we'd set down at our primary cache. Our ground grew dashed out immediatly, beginning the usual maintenence checks. I myself went straight for my decently appointed rooms to catch some rest. First though, I opened a channely to the GreatSword's command deck, redying myself for a brief conversation.

The intercom chimed as the door slid open. <Captain on deck.> they rang. "Someone remind me to disable that ringer, please?" I asked.
"Too late, now get ready, you got an incoming hail, frequency 5." a beautiful young lady answered.
"With who Mikella?"
"It's from the Persephone. Seems like they want a little talk." she smirked.
"Patch him through." Even though we had just recently met, I was really starting to like the guy. He was a great assistant in combat, but wasn't too good with his pennies.

October 2nd, 2004, 8:09 AM
"What up" I asked in a friendly manner once I saw Burne's profile come in onscreen.

After the static cleared, his face came Center-Screen. "Not much. Been time, hasn't it? Cut to the point, what do you need, or would you like to know? Before you answer, don't ask for cash. You still have a 4 K debt from the past times." he replied, a smirk of pleasure covering his mouth.

October 2nd, 2004, 3:18 PM
"It has indeed been a while" I drawled, relaxing before I said "Anyway, I'm not looking for cash. There's a Russian cargo ship headed my way soon enough...Anyway, I'm actually wondering if you'd like to come to a meeting. A while ago I was contacted by a few other captains, they're talking about organizing."

Finally, 10'clock in the morning , the Blue Lightning took off from the harbor, "Everybody at your positions" , 4 people to the turrets, 2 one turret, the other 2 at the other turret, the same number of people need for the missile pack. I told Maltug that he will fly the airship, just to make him feel pain. 30 minutes later , the Blue Lightning was infront of the enemy, it was a big white airship, it started to attack, Maltug evaded the attacks. "Joey, start a conversation with the captain of that airship" , "yes, Sir!" , I sighed, again. I walked over the communication screen, then the captain of the enemy airship appeared. "Max, long time no see" said the enemy captain. "I'm sorry , have we met before?" , "so you don't remember me" , "what do you think, australian scum" , "don't you remember the mexican attack against Auastralia? , you destroyed a lot of soldiers , ships , and aircrafts, you thought you killed me when you destroyed the main base of military forces of Australia..." then I interruped "oh yes! , now I remember you, now you want revenge, but let me tell you something, australian scum, you will not have revenge, you will have a really noisy dead" , then I finished the conversation. "5 missiles against that airship". From the missile pack , 5 missiles were launched against the enemy, the enemy clan's airship was destroyed. "Australia is poor , their defences in every military unit are very low, well let's return to the harbor" Maltug flied the Blue Lightning to the harbor and he landed the big blue airship. After all people went inside the harbor , I stayed in the Blue Lightning , in the airsip I have kinda a small bedroom, I entered the room and inmediatly I layed over the bed , thinking

(Nice intro Max, but some things don't make sense. Like what was the Nationality of the Enemy? But since my explanation was a little cloudy, I'll clear it up a bit, there are Crews and a Captain for each ship, and the chances of knowing one another are very slim. Good narration, but that's something that would fit a Fighter description. Sorry.)

"Where, pray tell, did you come across this?" I asked. An orginization of us all would be very good, but unfortunately, I was a loner, since I first went to school. "And, as you might not recall, I don't trust Russians, they're too clever. Most likely, they'll be ready for you. As for the meeting... I might drop in, but don't expect it."

October 3rd, 2004, 8:49 AM
I nodded cooly, saying "If you want to join, we're meeting in Revjak two weeks from now." I ended the transmission and headed straight for my bed. Caffine was no substitute for sleep.

(Thanks Max, very good. Joe, why does your airship look like a Fighter jet?)

As the image turned to static, then minimized, I began to wonder... Why hadn't I heard of this earlier? Then I realized a grave mistake. "Gir, did he leave a Nav point to wherever we were supossed to go?" I asked.
"Nope, why? Was I supossed to ask?" he cooed.
"Ugh...Why do I have such a bad memory?" I questioned myself.
"I guess this is a bad time..."
"Bad time for what?" I looked up.
"To tell you about the signal I caught." he said, shifting his feet.
"Show me." A map on-screen shows a pulsing red dot on a geographical map. The country identifier labeled it as 'Russia'. "Gir, here's a C-B-G shake." I said in awe.
"YAAYAYAYAY!!!!" he cheered.

I went over the main cabin of the airship and everyting was so quite, then I thought that there was an alien and that the alien would kill me and eat me, but it was only my imagination, then I started to think about the captains that I know, "crap, I just know like 10 and they are all allies, I used to know enemies before, but time pass and I forgot 'em , I have met Burne , he helped me a little with the mexican attack against australia now that I remember, and I just have heard about Kyo Yamagata, 'really good at combat' is one of the things that people say about him" then I just remained in the seat of the captain in the main cabin.

We had been cruising ever since Gir gave us the locator. Since we had time before we arrived, I decided to have meetings with my divisions. First on the list was... "Tech division, what have you got?" I asked.
"Not much." the strapping young lad replied. "We still need a bit more time. Right now, all we have is the Magetic Fields."
"Okay, Weapons division, Gir said you had something new. Brief me on the details." I requested.
"Well, it's not ready for mas production, but... We invented a new type of Artillery." A couple small images floated in the air behind him, generated by the Holographs mounted on the ceiling. "We call it the Charged Particle Cannon. It fires particles of plasma in a projectile at an opponent, dealing a punch, and some burning as well. If you fire just one of these at an enemy's Engine, it would be Dead in the Air." he commented.
"Good, very good. Now, Budget. How much do we have?" I asked. A young girl stood up, clipboard in hand.
"Well, sir, after the recent sales, our budget has now reached an impressive eleven-digit total." she informed.
"May I see?" I asked. She quickly handed me the board she was holding. The grand total was really impressive, an estimated $73,869,376,925!
"But, keep in mind, this isn't exact." she reminded.

10 minutes later, I was starting to get bored, then Rick walked in the Blue Lightning. "Finally, I came here to ask if I can check the airship, Max"
"Yes you can, Rick" Rick left , he went over the turbines. I was still there, bored, after 1 hour , I checked my watch and it was the 10:38 p.m , then I fell asleep. When I woke up , Rick was coming, "Max you don't believe what I made to the airship"; "I will find it out later" ; "hm , well if u want". Then he left , I don't know why I was staying in the Blue Lightning, but I didn't felt like going with my clan, I felt like a lonely guy, and that's what I am, a lonely guy, then I just laughed and looked at the ceiling.

After being carted out of the room, I was wheeled to my Dorm. The numbers had taken me quite to shock. Then next day, when I asked what happened, they all said I froze in astonishment.
"Fine, but that was nothing to be unimpressed at!" I commented.
"Why are you telling me?" Gir asked.
"Huh? Where'd they go?" I asked, looking around.
"This is your room, they aren't allowed inside, remember?" he asked.

*The oak door shut behind me as I glided towards the bridge.*
"Are you sure you don't wish to change into something more comfortable?" Gir asked.
"No, why?" I replied.
"Because you're wearing a Medical Wing robe." he commented.
"And that's bad because?..." I lingered.
"Because you're mooning me." he laughed.
