After several years of searching, I finally own the first Jovian Chronicles book for Mekton II. It only cost me $9 too, so I’m happy I didn’t break.

Mekton “Jovian Chronicles Introduction” from
Garrett nodded to each in turn, before finally introducing himself with a slight smile “As Lt. Summers said, I’m Lieutenant Mercer.
I’m looking forward chornicles working with each of you. Rachel let her arm whirl down as she listened to the first three to, the prim and proper Venusian, an earthling of all things and the fearless leader.
She smiled her half cybernetic chrlnicles, something her boss called unnerving. You Jovians would call that a lieutenant, as for my callsign. On account of my being they call me Mad Dog. So that issues resolved, and as the good commander said I pilot a defender. Cut my teeth and bled in the damn thing. It’s like joovian good ‘ol extension of me now, and it’s the only thing tougher than me. Here in the JAF we follow the age old tradition of pilot callsigns, if you don’t have one we’ll figure one out for you.
Mrkton in the sky we use callsigns only it’s easier to remember and safer. On board we generally use rank and name when on duty or just rank, callsigns are ok too. Off duty use whatever joviah and who ever your addressing is comfortable with.
I’ve never worked with civilians in the past but like all military i have preconceived ideas about civies. I will try my best to keep an open mind and not to offend you. Check your Tablets and synch them with the ships network, I’ve sent you the Frame location for our cabins and assigned bunks. If you have any problems let me know. Once we’re done here find your bunk, stow your gear and chronicled for Accel. Once we get to cruise I’d like to get started we have a lot of work to do before we get to our patrol zone.
Mercer I am very familiare with and Spec. Carpenter has been aboard for a bit and i have an idea of his capabilities. I want to get a feel for the rest of you so I can make a good training schedule. Like the Venusian, Crhonicles rose as at attention, but did not bow. You’ve already heard the gist of my unique situation from the Commander – I hold the title of Specialist since, technically, my status is that of an expert civilian. I cut my teeth on the Chtonicles, but the Pathfinder model handles even better for sure.
Eva, following the Mercurian’s example. Stood up and put her own twist on it, bowing deeply before bringing an honest attempt at a smile, which she hoped would work.
You may call me that, or Eva, or Evangeline. I am pleased to make all of your acquaintance and I hope to work, well with you. I of course pilot the Ghost which my technical officer has provided details on, though I am also trained chrlnicles most of the Venusian arsenal I specialize in sniping, and while I may have not seen combat. I did perform extremely well in simulations, setting academy records. She was meaning to be impressive. Several people said they were waiting for the briefing to end to get to talking IC with each other.
I ended it a week ago and had the Mercurian break the ice. That was a week ago and nobody has posted since. Commander Onuaha waited a moment, scanning the faces of the pilots and then nodded.
I’ve already assigned quarters. You’ll be bunking three to a cabin with a shared common area between both cabins. It’s a small ship, so space is at a premium. Just be glad you’re not hot racking. She pushed her way effortlessly to the hatch, opened it and paused for a moment before turning to look back over her shoulder.
Since the training of your unit is our priority, you will not chroncles to stand Alert duty. The other two flights will meiton as the Alert Flight. I expect every member of my crew to do their job, and they certainly do, but it still wouldn’t hurt to show the other flights some appreciation. After a moment or two the Mercurian waved a hand and took the initiative to break the ice.
They call me Buster. I started as a fighter pilot, but I am certified in shuttles and almost anything else that burns too. Anyways, the Guild has been switching over to the new Hercs, so I switched over too in order to keep my job and membership in The Guild. The Guild does not really have ranks quite the same way you guys do though, since it’s a merchant guild, not a military. My rank, if you want to call it that, is just ‘Pilot’ because I am usually one of two Herc pilots on a Guild ship.
We guard Guild vessels and help with the loading and unloading of cargo. I’ve seen my fair share of combat with pirates though, so I’m far from green. And this is my joian, Sita. We brought spare parts, plenty of ammo and some other goodies, so we should be good to go.
Rachel just waved when she was introduced, showing off her seemingly crudely constructed cybernetic arm, as she listened to the briefing she concluded two things. One the Ghost sounded like it could become a large paperweight planetside, and two that she didn’t have any questions.
Satisfied with this she just waited and scratched her mechanical hand, phantom itch still plaguing her. The pilots and their Head Techs more filled the briefing room, found their seats and waited a minute or so before Commander Onuaha arrived.
She maneuvered quite gracefully in Zero-G, a benefit of such a long career serving on various Jovian vessels, and took her seat. She took a moment to pull up some information on her station and then got right down to business.
I am her Captain, Commander Onuaha.
You have all been selected by your respective armed forces to be the first to serve in this unprecedented Joint Training Unit. Though some join training has taken place before between some of our armed forces, never has so many of the Solar Nations been represented in a single unit such as this.
Though this joint training will be taking place as pirate busting patrols and other similar activities, let’s face it. You all know, or at least have an idea, of why you are here. Each of our respective nations were offered entry into the CEGA. And each of our respective nations refused. Judging by the intelligence reports about the CEGA’s recent military build-up, it looks like another round of ‘invitations’ may be coming, but this time at the end of a railgun.
So the rest of the Solar Nations decided that a joint unit would be formed so all parties involved could cross-train, gain some combat experience and foster mutual cooperation and support among the rest of the Solar System if, or more likely when, the CEGA decides to get rough. You are that unit. If things go well, this will be the first of many units such as this to help us prepare for the unfortunate likelihood of war with the CEGA. And to prepare for that, we have a bit of help.
This is Spc Carpenter,” the Commander said as she motioned to him.
He was a freedom fighter on Earth. This unit is the brainchild of the Jovian Confederation, and since we have the experience and military vessels to best carry out the mission, the JAF has the lead on this. Summers,” she said, gesturing to the pale-haired woman, “is the unit commander and that’s her Pathfinder Command in the bay. Next to her is the unit’s Retalliator pilot, Lt. That should give you an idea of how seriously they take the situation.
So to avoid CEGA interference, our Mercurian friends covertly transported the rest of you here along with their own exo-pilot Moore and her Hercules. The Martian Free Republic Rangers are masters of chrlnicles combat and renown for doing a lot with very little.
They have sent Ranger Hayes along her Defender. Venus is even on board. This unit will also truly field test the Ghost, so I am sure you all want to know what you can expect from it since you’ll all be working along side it. Eisenfaust, the Lead Tech on the Ghost project. I’ll let her fill you in on it.
Eisenfaust nodded to Commander Onuaha and then looked over the chroniclee pilots and techs for a moment before she began. That being the case, the idea was to design an Exo-Armor that would offer excellent survivability. This would be achieved not only by the advanced armor, but also it’s weapons loadout and additional systems.
It stands at a height of As field testing progresses, the loadout may change, but here is a rundown as it is currently equipped. Eisenfaust explained with just the slightest hint joviian a German accent. She slid a small drive into the tabletop console and pressed a few buttons, causing the display to project an image of the Ghost.
The primary weapon system is a Variable Beam Cannon. In standard firing mode, the weapon is roughly equivalent to the Jovian Optics A Particle Cannon found on the standard Pathfinder.
The power draw is significant though, so the cannon is fitted with a supplementary, pre-charged capacitor cell that can only provide enough additional power for a handful shots in secondary firing mode. Due to the lack of free space within the torso of the exo-armor, the LDS is housed in an external weapons pod attached to the shoulder of the Ghost. For close combat the Ghost jovisn equipped with a powerful pincer claw, in place of the left hand manipulator.
