The ride was usually rough in the chopper, even with the stabilizers working to balance the flying machine as it soared over the mountains and into Denver.   The city was so enormous with nearly 5 million population of human and alien alike.  It wasn’t the largest of spaceports, but it did have the headquarters of fleet command ad well as one of four of the palaces of  the Hegemon located on Earth.  The amount of air traffic and ground made Ike think he was still at the cabin looking down at a disturbed ants nest.  Suddenly the whisky wore off and he began thinking clearly.  “It happening again”, he muttered.   

In the years following the loss of Andori, the war was quick against an enemy they never saw.  The battles were few and in remotes sections of the known galaxy.  Even smaller empires surrounding their own reported skirmishes with terrible losses.   The fact that Ike and the crew of the Iethean Hawk survived the first encounter with the faceless was a well know story.  But also being one of the few ships to engage them and drive them back in battle shortly after repairs.  Saving countless lives in different systems.  Still never seeing who or what they were fighting.  Then suddenly, they were gone.  The things they called “faceless” were no more.  Then the politics of finger pointing began.  Which Ike thought was the true war they had to deal with.  It nearly tore the whole command into a civil war.   Until the newest Hegemon won his seat and took control.  Even Ike was impressed in his skills at the way it went so smoothly.   Soon Ike was pressured into service with the Hegemon,  Which he politely declined and promptly retired. 

Ike was suddenly brought back from his memories.  At least the ones he could remember.  The Chopper landed with a solid thud on the landing pad and Ike was shocked to see not just a full welcoming squad, but the Hegemon himself standing next to Ike Jr.   Quickly every possible reason as to why he was called back to duty escaped him.    He walked up to the Hegemon, smiled and saluted the best he could.  His joints ached with disease. 

“General Ike Ironton reporting for duty,” Ike continued to stare straight forward.

The Hegemon smiled and took a step in and placed his hand on Ikes shoulder.  “Of all the people in this galaxy, you can still call me Perymore”.  Suddenly The Hegemon pulled Ike into a hug.

“It’s good to see you too Perymore.”

I am in the mood to write, so I shall.

Both men walked into the halls of the great building which served as the high command structure on Earth.  Ike did not miss this place.  Memories, as broken as they seem to be, started to come back.  A voice of very young lieutenant could be heard in his memory.  One he knew very well.  The same voice grew from a soft tone to a much harden and focused sound.   He was interrupted before he he could drift too far. 
"Welcome back you old Rockmutton" Lt. Nillas spoke through her smile.   Her sleek form was tall, nearly six feet and 8 inches.  For her race of Tarian, it was above average.  Both crystal blue eyes which use to be Innocent and bright had changed.  Both now held convection and dominance.    But it not stop her from giving Ike a hug.
For a brief moment, Ike blushed before he stiffened up, " We are all now huggers Commander?"
Nillas smiled, "only for the special."
The three of them, escorted by six special guards continued into a command center and into a small room where they were join by four other faces that Ike knew well.  A map displayed on a board behind them with maps pointing out several known Empires, unions, confederations, united alliences as well as their own and three black X's.  The guards left the room, and it was sealed.
