Today the world was looking up at the sky, for a long time now everyone was being warned, the world had been preparing for this moment. Yet at the same time in the minds of many this day wasn't coming, that it was imaginary reason that had just happened to be a convenient reason to kick start technological developments. That disbelief had been shattered though. Even as far away as they were, the sight of the Darwai ships couldn't be denied, much larger than the scout ships that had come years before. Even with the defenses, Earth still wasn't ready to mount a sizable enough offenses yet, sure ships of our own and other things were in development but were nowhere near being ready. For the time being all they had was the shield, and even that wasn't perfect. There were weak points, or even full blown holes in some areas. They were small, likely only large enough for a small group to slip through, but if they got through and managed to take out a generator, the hole would get a hell of a lot bigger, likely allowing the invasions forces to start pouring in. Thankfully there was something to ensure such threats didn't meet their objectives. -Location: Stairway to Heaven- Rick Kenway stood on the skyship's bridge, like many others that day he had spent most of it looking up at the sky at what had finally arrived at earth. In a way he knew this day was coming for most of his life without a shred of disbelief. Where some doubted it an some scoffed, he knew and for him it was like waiting for the guillotine to drop. In a way it was almost a relief for him that this day had come, the axe had feel and now him and his team's job had truly begun. He could only help but wonder how the others felt in that moment. Like him Leo, Alyson and Selene had more or less been preparing for this day for most of their lives, even the Psi Foundation's newest recruit had to be feeling something. "Chances are they noticed the shield by now, no doubt in my mind they are already looking for weak points." he said to the bridge crew. It was the kind of thing that didn't take psyker abilities to know. He approached the ship's intercom. "Kenway here, if you've looked up at all since you woke up you know whats up there. As of now were officially one high alert. So don't get too relaxed, drink some coffee if you need to. Were monitoring the shield up here, the second a disturbance is detected were going in. Until then sit tight." he said as he set down the com, deciding to help himself to some of that coffee before things ended up getting real. He looked calm and confident, but really he was just as anxious as the rest of them were. Still as the guy who got put in charge of this whole thing he at least look like he was invincible.
