The ship is suddenly hit by a wave of energy the secound it leaves slipspace the ship didnt even detect the weapon, all the ships equipment overloads and turns off all coms and weapons turn off even gravity "right we need to get there before there life support fails" a dropship full of chat with tranquilizer guns enters the ptranosaurian ship, the crew try to fire weapons at them but they are all overloaded.
The chat soldiers quickly shoot there tranquilizer guns into them nocking them out they then drag the uncontius bodys into the dropship, "well that was easy"

As the pelican approaches the Ptranosaurian ship it is incinerated to the molecular level when it hits the ships shield, which it didn't need to use up until now due to its ability to teleport and hack missile guiders, but now you can see a spot on the ship light up like fire, what was once a good pelican, gone.
The Ptranosaurian caption comes onscreen laughing: "Ha ha ha ha! Foolish savages, did you really think your primitive weapon was a match for Ptranosaurian engineering? Sireosly? An emp? predictable. Our ships use virtually no electricity what so ever. We long abandon a reliance on it for Pyro-physics 4 million years ago! Oh, but I could destroy your ship in a single shot. But would that be a fair fight?"
Suddenly the ship that shot at them gets a slip space portal open inside of it, Ptranosaurians have boarded the ship, they draw sword hilts, igniting them, out comes a blade made of virtually solidified fire.
Relax, new alien invaders are suppose to seem invincible at first, but its just smoke and mirrors.
Now, hear is to make sure we don't miss a good introduction point.
So far nothing has been able to stop the Ptranosaurian fleet, missiles are regarded as toys to their ability to hack the system. Unguided projectiles are easily dodged by their ability to navigate a precise short slip space jump of only a few thousand feet. Shots that have managed to get to them hardly scratch their shields, even EMPs are ineffective as their ships are powered not by electricity but by fire.
But now, we shall see how our solders fair againced theirs. A chat ship tried a new weapon on them, and it failed. But now the Ptranosaurian ship has boarded the chat ship by teleporting crew in with a short ranged slip space jump.
This won't be an easy fight, a Ptranosaurian stands 16ft tall, is heavily armored and shielded, but, can they be countered?
Rules: This RP thread is entirely crew to crew combat, absolutely no ship t ship what so ever, that way the ship to ship fight can be uninterrupted, and I can insure this one is tried.
Plot: It is reveled that taking down Ptranosaurian solders is just like taking down any solder, keep shooting until their shields drop, keep shooting again until they drop. This is just to be reminded that yes you can beat these guys in the ground/deck battle.
Some of our only member was starting to get frustrated about the sterialtipical "They at first seem invincible" introduction, now is a chance for payback finally granted.
The Ptranosaurians over shields activate, many of the shots fired at them burn at a molecular level, they swing their swords as well, unlike laser cutlasses and sangheili swords where the bullets just continue on melted, their swords at a much higher temperature just burn the bullets up.
Even the grenade launchers grenades as they strike shield don't even manage to explode, as they just burn up before they can.
But then, 9 of the Ptranosaurians shields drop, leaving them open to be fired on.
How ever the Ptranosarians are fast on their feet, and charge the chat solders, one has a sword lunged into his chest, the razor sharp fire scorches his heart, another out of reflex tries to block with his AR, only to have it sliced in half, some of the metal drips off the 2 halves.
One of the chat members manage to shoot the hilt of one of their swords with a high cal bullet, the flame blade goes out leaving him unarmed.
Chat solder: "Ha! What you going to do now? I still have my gun!" he says smugly.
The Ptranosaurian chuckles smugly then opens his mouth, from it leaps a hot flame, the solder screams in agony.
some of the solders fire at the 9 with their shields down, most of their shots ping off their armor, but you can tell damage is taking effect, one of the chat fires a grenade lancher striking a Ptranosaurian in the chest plate, a crack can be seen in his armor and a trickle of visable blood, angry, he grabs the solder by the neck and begins lifting him sword his sword.
(btw flechette granade launcher rounds dont explode there basically like a massive shotgun shell which can fit into a granade launcher it doesnt have the splash damage of a granade launcher but it is verry powerful against single enemys)
The chat soldier points his weapons muzzle against the enemys chest as he picks him up "take this" he emptys his mag into his chest
The Ptranosaurian drops to the floor in a pool of his own blood to drown in. Their he lays, a meer mortal, killable.
A Ptranosaurian: "Hmm, that's odd, I didn't expect the first casualty of this war on our side so early." he says in his tong.
One of the solders sees something coming tword him and catches it out of reflex, its a human head, its not dripping blood because the neck area has been scorched, he sees a body drop with a Ptranosaurian armed with a flame sword next to the dropping body. He hasn't yet been spotted by the culprit.
The Ptranosaurians line up the ones with the strongest shields to the ones with the most damaged, all though 3 drop before they can change formation. The ones at front take hits for about 4 seconds then their shields are at 14%, they then become second in line and the 2cond become 3rd, they take shots until their shields are drained, bullets ping off their armor leaving minor dints, they are now second in line and 2cond in line is now 3rd.
The next have their turn taking fire.
The Ptranosaurians continue to advance, marching slowly, swords drawn, then the one at the front line having gotten closer opens her mouth, from it a ball of fire lunches forth aimed at the gunner, she then becomes second in line and the next to be at the front launchers a fire ball from their mouth.
They then begin to charge.
"FOR THE EMPIIIRRRRE!"
Coming in hot, literally, they begin to run nearly as quickly as would Kig-yar.
