<In the skies above Medea, a strange starship suddenly drops out of warp. The people of the land do not immediately notice it. But the creatures become restless...>

<The ship is vaguely saucer-like in shape, though it has three very large sections shaped like bird's beaks in adjacent positions to each other around the ship's perimeter. The whole thing is various lovely shades of purple and green, though it also seems quite dark and foreboding...>

<It hangs there in the sky for several minutes. Then it moves to the east, without the need to turn as it goes. Its movements seem unnatural, as though gravity simply had no effect on it. The creatures of Medea's lands continue to behave restlessly, watching it above them in the sky...>

<The ship eventually settles in the air over Yaptolacca Ravine. The native Harpies immediately sense its presence, and become ruffled. A giant caterpillar flees from the general viscinity of the land immediately and relatively far below the ship...>

<A beam of dark purple light suddenly shines from the center of the ship down to the large open section of land immediately below...>

<The beam of light is a Gravity Lift. Some restless creatures peer out from various points of cover to watch, as a dozen figures, non-human soldiers, quickly descend down the beam...>

<A Protoss Zealot. A Sangheili Elite. A Kig-Yar Skirmisher. An Eliksni Vandal. A Bulblin Boulder Smasher. A Varkolyn Warlock. Four Vex Goblins. And two Vex Hobgoblins. Their clothing/armor and adornments are all of the purples and greens the ship bears, perhaps with a few personal touches added. And they all have a distinctive emblem somewhere on their person: a purple-framed septagon, filled with green, with a stylized purple "A" centered, all made of crystal...>

<The moment their feet touch the ground, they step forward out of the light in all directions, and take in the sights before them: Cloudy skies of grey, scraggly plants of red and blue, great chasms of mist and stone, and a growing number of agitated and curious creatures. Eggars, Do Jinmenfa, that giant Caterpillar, all edging inward to investigate these foreign entities. The Zealot looks up at some higher cliffs to see Harpies gathering and peering down at them. The dozen soldiers, minus the Vex, pass glances at each other. The Zealot and Elite almost simultaneously activate their energy weapons, and turn their attention outward. The creatures see the sign of aggression. Thunder rumbles...>

<Now agitated beyond control, all of the creatures, but for the Harpies, move in to attack. Three Eggars bound toward the Protoss Zealot. He readies himself, then dashes forward, leaving psionic after-images of himself. He bursts through the trio, knocking two back and stunning them. But one he passes directly through, and it just sits there, wobbling, with stars spinning over its head. The Zealot backflips, grabbing the Eggar on the go, then stabs it with his Psi Blade, killing it immediately. Another of the Eggars is shot by the Slap Rifle of one of the Vex Goblins, who ominously walks toward them.>

<The giant Caterpillar hops into the air, rolls into a wheel, and rumbles forward at the group. The Bulblin Boulder Smasher responds. He leaps at the incoming insect, and slams one of his huge mechanical gauntlet fists into into the ground, causing a chunk of rock to burst up directly beneath the Caterpillar, intercepting it and popping it into the air, where it crashes down in a daze. It then suffers three Slap Rifle shots from a Goblin on approach.>

<Three Do Jinmenfa creep toward the Varkolyn Warlock, who just stands there, his ornate robes fluttering in the stormy wind, his evil-looking staff's crystalline components slowly pulsating a glow. The flower creatures try to menace the Varkolyn with glares. In response, his own eyes glint red, and he grins a fearsome grin. He holds up a clawed hand, and seething Darkness quickly gathers into his palm. A Goblin strides over to assist, taking aim with its Slap Rifle. The Jinmenfa pull back, gathering energy to fire pollen shots.>

<Four Eggars and two Do Jinmenfa gather up and approach the group from the north, seemingly intent on trying to get at the gravity lift. But the Sangheili Elite and the Eliksni Vandal calmly step into their path, weapons at the ready. They give each other an affirmative look, and face the creatures, who slow their approach, but do not stop. The Vandal aims with his Wire Rifle, builds a charge, and shoots an Eggar, badly damaging it and catching the others off guard, not expecting such a sudden ranged attack. This distracts them briefly, enough for the Elite to charge them with a snarl, Energy Sword at the ready. One of the Eggars turns and hops at him to bite, but he swings his sword and cleaves the creature in two. A Jinmenfa readies to fire a pollen blast, when another Wire Rifle shot rings out and the plant is struck by a bolt of high velocity Voltage from the Vandal's gun. He calmly keeps his sights on them as the Elite gets in melee.>

<Six Eggars bounce toward the Kig-Yar Skirmisher, who lets out something akin to an alien chuckle. He lifts up his Needle Rifle, and cocks it, causing a bunch of the needles to sprout from the gun's back. He then dashes toward the Eggars, surprising them with his speed. Just before he makes contact with the group, he springs off to the side and opens fire with the rifle, shooting its purple crystal needles at the Eggars rapidly. They stab into the creatures and cause them to jolt. One leaps out of the way, while another is shot from another direction by a Vex Goblin's Slap Rifle, the Goblin on approach to help. The Skirmisher breaks into a rapid strafe, gets a fix on one Eggar with two needles stuck in it, and fires a quick additional shot. The instant the needle plunges in, they supercombibe and explode, killing the Eggar and throwing the other five back and into complete disarray.>

<The fighting having broken out in full, the Harpies watch warily. Eggars and Do Jinmenfa are hardly any real threat, but the way these soldiers fight quickly makes it evident they are extremely skilled and dangerous to anything. As the Harpies watch, one lets out a startled cry. The others look at her, see her horrified at something, and turn their heads to look. They immediately feel chills rush down their spines, when they see the Vex Hobgoblins, still standing down there by the gravity lift... staring at them with their gleaming eyes. The Hobgoblins stare at the Harpies with their unblinking, monocular eyes seething with Vex energy, their cat tails swaying up and down as though waiting for the moment to pounce. Despite them being so far apart, the Harpies suddenly feel pinned down and thoroughly disturbed...>

<Angered by being shot, one of the two remaining Eggars battling the Protoss Zealot bounces at the Vex Goblin, moving erratically to avoid being shot, though some still connect. The other Eggar lunges at the Zealot, attempting to bite his leg. The Zealot lifts that leg, then stomps the Eggar. The first one leaps at the Goblin and bites its leg hard. But the Goblin has a Contour Barrier, which absorbs the damage. The Eggar gnaws on the shielding, until the Goblin nonchalantly grabs the Eggar with its free hand, pulls it off and holds it at arm's length. The Eggar in the Goblin's grip, and the Eggar beneath the Zealot's foot, wriggle, trying to get free.>

<Pain from the Vex Goblin's Slap Rifle shots causes the giant Caterpillar to spring to its feet. The Bulblin Boulder Smasher takes a fighting stance, and the Goblin keeps shooting the Caterpillar, angering it. It suddenly lays forward and spews a thick plume of poisonous smoke at the Bulblin. He responds quickly, clapping his hands to create a vertical shockwave that splits the cloud, preventing it from connecting with him, and stunning the Caterpillar once again. The Goblin keeps pelting it with shots, whittling down its life force. Then the Bulblin lunges forward, and strikes the Caterpillar with a mighty uppercut, flipping it clean over to slam the back of its head on the ground. It wriggles, still trying to fight.>

<The three Do Jinmenfa simultaneously spew pollen blasts at the Varkolyn Warlock. At the same time, the Warlock clutches his clawed hand into a fist, splitting the writhing orb of Darkness in three. The three fly out erratically and dart about through the air before slamming into the three plant creatures with great force. But the Jinmenfa can't react, as the moment they are hit, they are ensnared in tendrils of Darkness that hold them fast and prevent them from doing anything. A thin layer of dark film also covers them between where the tendrils have them, utterly locking them in place. The Vex Goblin then goes to town, shooting one of them ceaselessly during this wide opening, and within short order, that Jinmenfa dies, from a combination of Slap Rifle damage and choking constriction from the Darkness. The Warlock, meanwhile, simply Blinks out of the path of the pollen blasts, and lets out a wicked little chuckle.>

<Where the Protoss Zealot is graceful, the Sangheili Elite is much more... straight-forward. He grabs one of the Do Jinmenfa by an arm, swings it over himself and slams it on top of the Eggar that was first shot by the Eliksni Vandal, then promptly runs them through with his Energy Sword. Another Eggar clamps on to his leg, but he too has a Contour Barrier, and it absorbs the damage. Another Wire Rifle shot rings out, striking the second Jinmenfa, making for a second direct hit. The plant creature promptly keels over, leaving only two Eggars remaining.>

<The Kig-Yar Skirmisher is literally running circles around the five Eggars, shooting them with his Needle Rifle, while the Vex Goblin is a bit more stationary. The Eggars for their part are completely occupied with trying to avoid the bullet storm, and are not doing too well. One suffers the blast of another supercombine and is killed. The blast propels the others back, and one suddenly springs into the Skirmisher's path. It leaps for a bite, only for the Skirmisher to put all his momentum into a flip kick, popping the Eggar into the air, where both the Skirmisher and Goblin pelt it with shots, making it the third casualty. As they're doing this however, the three remaining Eggars scramble to take advantage of this distraction to close in on the Skirmisher.>

<The Vex Hobgoblins stare ceaselessly at the Harpies, waiting for any sign of aggression, ready to snipe them with their Line Rifles. Their stare has practically petrified the entire flock of Harpies, who tremble in terror and dare not move a muscle.>

<With the two remaining Eggars pinned by the Protoss Zealot and Vex Goblin, their skirmish is effectively won. The Zealot notices the Goblin holding the Eggar, and narrows his eyes in grim amusement. He disengages his Psi Blades, and calls out to get the Goblin's attention. He gestures for the Goblin to send the Eggar his way. The Goblin adjusts its position, and aims its free hand, gripping the Eggar, toward the Zealot. The Zealot lifts his foot off his Eggar, quickly grabs and lifts it with psionic power, and performs an astonishing roundhouse kick to send the Eggar flying toward the Goblin. At the same time, the Goblin generates a Void Burst from its free hand, effectively firing the Eggar in its grip as if out of a cannon toward the Zealot. The two Eggars collide in midair with devastating force, and die immediately.>

<The Bulblin Boulder Smasher jumps onto the giant Caterpillar and punches down into it, damaging to further. It suddenly spins on its back, tossing the Bulblin off, though it continues to be pelted with Slap Rifle shots from the assisting Vex Goblin. The Bulblin lands on his hands, flips to his feet, and twists to plunge the fingers of his huge mechanical gauntlets into the ground. He pulls a huge rock out, seemingly from nothing, swings it over his head, and slams it down on the Caterpillar. He nails its head as it struggles to right itself, and this blow is sufficient to finally kill the huge insect.>

<The two remaining Do Jinmenfa are helpless in the ensnarement of dark tendrils and film. The Varkolyn Warlock takes a moment to decide what to do next, but realizes he's going to lose his opportunity when the Vex Goblin helping him takes its own proactive action. Understanding that being frozen as they are means they're very vulnerable to explosives, the Goblin activates its Slap Grenade launcher, and starts building up energy in its free hand. The Warlock shortly aims his staff at one of the Do Jinmenfa, swiftly builds up Necros energy, and fires a Bone Spear at it. The mystical projectile pierces through the plant creature, severely injuring it, and keeps on going. The Goblin fires its grenade, which lands next to the other Jinmenfa and creates the Void portal in the ground. The Warlock fires another Bone Spear, and this one kills the Jinmenfa he'd chosen. A Void explosion shortly erupts from the portal the grenade had created, blasting the third and final Jinmenfa apart.>

<The Sangheili Elite looks at the Eggar gnawing on the Contour Barrier of his leg. He looks at the amused Eliksni Vandal. The Vandal aims, builds up a charge, and fires a shot, nailing the Eggar and blowing it off the Elite's leg. One Eggar remains, and it makes a hesitant hop toward the Elite. The Elite slowly, ominously, menacingly turns his head, and glares. The Eggar stops. The Elite roars ferociously. The Eggar freaks out, turns, and hops away at top speed. The Elite huffs, and the Vandal chuckles quietly, lowering his gun.>

<The three Eggars close in and leap. They clamp on to the Kig-Yar Skirmisher's legs and an arm. He, too, has a Contour Barrier, which absorbs the damage. He quickly looks at the three creatures gnawing on the barrier sections of his limbs. The Vex Goblin just stands there, unwilling to shoot at them with its Slap Rifle while they cling to its ally. The Skirmisher gets a little peeved, then proceeds to break out an amazing and rapid series of flips, rolls and twirls that look very much like breakdancing. These super-agile moves throw the Eggars off. One ends up flying over a cliff into a ravine below. One gets tossed to the feet of the Goblin. The last gets launched straight up. The Skirmisher ends the routine by firing shots straight up at the airborne Eggar, and blowing it up with a supercombine explosion. The last Eggar, stunned at the feet of the Goblin, suffers a Void Blast from the free hand of the Vex soldier, sending it flying back to the Skirmisher, who swings his Needle Rifle to strike the flying creature in melee with the protruding needles of his gun, killing the Eggar quickly.>

<Thus ends the fighting. The Vex Hobgoblins never moved from their spot, staring relentlessly and vigilantly at the Harpies, who themselves never moved from their perches of observation, frozen in fear. With the arrival site cleared, the soldiers gather up, completely unscathed. They gather around the Hobgoblins, and look up at the Harpies, which just raises their terror level more...>

<The soldiers take a moment to observe the tense staredown. Neither the Hobgoblins, with their menacing gaze, nor the Harpies, frozen in fear, do anything other than nervous idle motions. The soldiers glance at each other.>

Sangheili Elite: *gestures with a head tilt* What should we do about them?

Protoss Zealot: *folds his arms in front of his chest* We did not come here to exterminate. For that matter, we do not have the time to deal with everything.

Varkolyn Warlock: *chuckles menacingly* They certainly aren't going to come after us. Look how they quiver in fear of the Vex.

Kig-Yar Skirmisher: *looks around a little nervously* We can't ignore them though. We don't need them thinking they can ambush us.

Bulblin Boulder Smasher: *rests a hand on the side of his head* Can we just drive them off?

Eliksni Vandal: *narrows his eyes* We can. I will fire a warning shot over the shoulder of one of them. They look so tense, a sudden threat like that should send them fleeing.

<The soldiers quietly acknowledge agreements. The Vex remain silent, but likely agree as well.>
