"Colonel Yagami, report," Admiral Chrono Harlaown began.
"Summary of Report DR-755 of the TSAB Mobile Assault and Rescue Unit 6." Yagami Hayate began. "We had responded to a dimensional anomaly near Unadministered World #97; apparently, the amount of energy released in that dimensional anomaly was enough to structurally disrupt a G2-class star. Oddly enough, the reaction was contained within the anomaly itself."
She took a sip from the glass of water before continuing. "We used Ancient Belkan dimensional transit protocols to locate the anomaly, and we found that the energy reaction had long since ceased. What we did find, was something else entirely."
"Continue," Chrono said. "Your data here isn't comprehensive."
"Well, sir, based on our last set of missions involving Ark Cradle-type spacecraft, I made my report as vague as possible, Admiral," Hayate replied, "That way I could report our findings directly to you."
"Prudent," Chrono said with an acknowledging nod. "What did you find?"
"Sir, it wasn't just the Ark-Cradle class of spacecraft. We also discovered hibernating AI devices with a power system we haven't seen before. The ship also runs on a similar system."
"Were there human survivors?"
"Yes, sir. Stasis pods. They're currently being tended to by Shamal and the others. But... three of the survivors don't... I mean, sir, they're more like the Knights than us, if you catch my drift. There's another one, someone with similar configuration to the Nakajima sisters."
"Interesting," Chrono said. "I'd like to debrief them when they are brought out of hibernation. What else did you find?"
"Aside from the humanoid machines?" Hayate asked. "I found several sentient mechanical animals in bad condition. The technicians are trying to work on repairing them right now."
"Yes, sir. They look like two fish, two moles, a bird... and a lion."
"Yes, that's me."
"The TSAB R&D division has personally requested your presence to fieldtest a prototype."
"What kind of prototype is it, sir?"
"Some kind of fighter aircraft. According to the files, its designation is PhantomGao."
Yes, this is exactly what you think. Has Chiwa Saitou ever been asked to scream "BROKEN PHANTOM!" and/or "HIKARI NI NARE!!!" at cons?
