Crimson Dwarf Star System, Planet 5: A rocky planet with a thin atmosphere and no oceans, it is home to the colony of Berne, the largest swarm of chimeraz.

In the dark, navy-blue sky without a single cloud, a rare spark occasionally burst forth.

And then the sky opened.

๐˜’๐˜ถ๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ข๐˜ฉ!

Hundreds of large and small cruisers entered the orbit, looking like a meteor shower.

The chimeraz growling on the ground rushed toward the landing point of the cruisers.

With a huge structure and a brain larger than 50 meters, Berne is a living being. Berneโ€™s huge brain was designed so that Berne could control its vast swarm.

However, the sky opening up in battle meant disadvantage on the ground.

The orbital bombardment fell on the heads of the chimeraz swarm that had gone out to attack the cruiser force. The force of the bombardment was so powerful that it could not be withstood even by the underground Skeletunnel, and it flipped the ground over along with the flesh of the chimeraz.

Berne was amazed.

โ€˜๐˜ž๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ข ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ด ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ.โ€™

After the orbital bombardment had massacred the swarm once, the smoke cleared, and from the changed terrain emerged the human army.

โ€œCharge!โ€

Darwin Foundationโ€™s marines were fully sealed battle suits equipped with boosters and armed with high-powered plasma guns.

They advanced into Berneโ€™s colony territory, overpowering the remnants of the chimeraz swarm that had been swept away by the orbital bombardment with their firepower.

At that moment, Berne felt the humans stepping on the Xenotera.

โ€˜๐˜ˆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฃ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ.โ€™

๐˜’๐˜ถ๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ. . .!

The Pukers that had been hiding underground raised their heads and sprayed powerful digestive fluid. At the same time, the Hounz and Kabana swarms that had been hiding in nearby nests charged, and the Tritulas got into formation and fired their bone darts in unison.

It was Berneโ€™s strategy to overwhelm the enemy all at once, hold them back with a long-range attack, and then send in assault-type chimeraz to push the front lines.

๐˜‘๐˜ช๐˜ช๐˜ช๐˜ช๐˜ช๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ. . .

However, the Tritulaโ€™s bone darts and the Pukerโ€™s digestive fluid were blocked by the energy barrier they had deployed.

The bone darts, which had collided with the translucent man-made particles of the energy barrier that had been deployed like a wall, dropped like they had really hit a wall, and the digestive fluid also flowed down the energy barrier pointlessly.

โ€œRevenge of the engineering research team. . .!โ€

โ€œFilthy bugs!โ€

โ€œWipe them all out! These monsters killed Staff Sergeant Eric!โ€

They used plasma guns immediately after deactivating the energy barrier.

Fired and hitting at the same time, the energy-based weapons heated the surrounding air explosively along their trajectory and made the targets explode from the heat.

๐˜—๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ, ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ, ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ, ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ, ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ!

The Hounz swarm running at the forefront was swept away, and even the Kabana swarm, which boasted great weight and strength, had their heads burst or front legs severed and fell to the ground just as they were running.

The swarm that managed to penetrate the firepower and approach right before the humansโ€™ noses ended up dying from the drone clusters controlled by brainwaves or the jumping landmines of the blasters.

It was literally a massacre.

The marines that had been deployed to the front secured the landing point and expanded the front lines.

In the meantime, even as the ground battle was taking place, the fleet battle was still ongoing.

Eleven Lemegetons were in orbit, and hundreds of Cresecters coming out of each Lemegeton were firing balls of plasma from their behinds.

In response, Darwin Foundationโ€™s fleet also sent out hundreds of interceptors. Rather than the plasma balls of the Cresecters, which were mere living organisms, the ship-based aircraft equipped with sophisticated target tracking and aiming systems built into their tactical AI gained the upper hand in the battle.

๐˜’๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜จ. . . ๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ. . .

Even though there was an explosion in space, it was a battlefield with no sound. However, with the flares and explosions of the projectiles and missiles flashing here and there, this space seemed noisier than the ground.

In terms of numbers, the Cresecters had almost twice as many, but the exchange rate of forces was much more favorable to the ship-based aircraft.

The Lemegeton swarms that engaged in the fleet battle were chimeraz that had been completely born by Kreion. Two of them had evolved into battleships that used pure main guns instead of being ships that carried Cresecters.

๐˜ก๐˜ป๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜จ. . .

The two Lemegetons opened their toothless gums wide vertically. The humans watching this must have thought that monsters would pop out of there again.

However, what was in the mouths of the two of them was neither countless Cresecters nor makeshift colonys.

What was in them were โ€˜tongues.โ€™

They were tongues that emitted an unstable green light, like the behinds of Cresecters. There was an empty hole at the tip of the tongue, making it look like it was about to spit something out.

The two Lemegetons stretched out their tongues toward the enemy ships. That was the gun barrel and the muzzle.

They poured out the crimson explosion from their bodies through all the nozzles, as if they were holding an enormous amount of energy. At the same time, a sizzling purple beam of light from the hole in the tongue pierced through two of Darwin Foundationโ€™s ships and extended somewhere into the dark nebula.

๐˜Š๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฌ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ. . .!

The incredible firepower fired by the living beings caused temporary communication failure and loss of the energy shield on Darwinโ€™s fleet.

However, the communication failure was restored after 4 seconds, and the ships that made up the fleet adopted a more aggressive method instead of the energy shield.

The fleet commander on the flagship announced from the bridge.

โ€œA thousand people just died from that.โ€

The energy shield, or the technology called a shield, indiscriminately blocks attacks from both friendly and enemy forces.

Nevertheless, since the ships that launch a large number of ship-based aircraft are the ones that need to be protected as a top priority in a fleet battle, the ships waited with their shields deployed, sending out only the ship-based aircraft.

โ€œAll ships. Redirect all engine output to the guns. The shields are useless.โ€

The Lemegetonโ€™s attack just now had proven that it could disable the shields and directly hit the ships. This meant that the fleet no longer needed to be defensive.

โ€œMain gun usage is now authorized.โ€

From that moment on, the fleet battle began to flow uncontrollaby. The Cresecter swarm, which had been at a disadvantage even against the ship-based aircraft formation, was now in a worse situation with the enemy ships directly participating in the battle.

Countless guns mounted on the ships fired powerful lasers and armor-piercing rounds, and accurately predicted shots blew up the Cresecters.

Following that, some ships revealed the deadly gun barrels of their retractable weapons and demonstrated the power of their main guns.

In the fleet battle that had become pure firepower without defense, the Lemegetons were destroyed one by one helplessly.
