Fan Fiction /Labor Day 2012/Thanatos
GAME MANAGERS NOTE
The following report depicts actions of the 514th Marine Assault Group. The mission dubbed "Thanatos" for the incarnation of Time, the goal being to buy time for the Maquis to shift forces and supplies to fend off the coming invasion.
Written by Colonel Cary Griffin.
The MFS Pathfinder and attached 514th MAG received orders from BGEN Willoughby to proceed immediately to Nivoch and set up defensive works to repel a probable invasion of Starfleet forces. These orders were further amended by Commandant Easterly to include reinforcements and extra starships for a blockade to prevent Starfleet Marine forces breaking our lines and carrying out an invasion of Maquis territory , and also to "pin down" as much of the Starfleet forces as possible.
No sooner than the 514th had made planetfall and begun constructing our defenses, the 7th MarDiv landed a mere 800 meters from our positions and began preparing defensive works a scant 500 meters from our lines.
We built in stages, first hasty fighting positions were dug under the shadows of our Mekks. Then by platoon, we began to upgrade the earthworks little by little filling sand bags and digging trenches for the support weapons and using the units Combat Engineer vehicles to dig deeper entrenchments for the Mekks and Armor.
After receiving word from the Pathfinder that reinforcement vessels had arrived, I contacted Commandant Easterly to apprise him if the situation on the ground, he informed me that Intelligence had just reported to him that Starfleet had positioned an additional 2 MarDiv's (the 2nd and 9th) and a convoy of supply vessels over Nivoch.
