Force Exile III: Liberator

Nominated by: Atarumaster88 (Talk page) 22:03, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Excerpt

Selu wordlessly clutched the controls with a frenzied grip, precariously dodging and jinking to evade the deadly fusillades of green turbolaser bursts even as he clawed for open space far enough from Zhar’s gravity well to jump to lightspeed. The beams were getting closer. Selu keyed the navicomputer, hoping to plot a jump to somewhere, anywhere away from their assailant. Unfortunately, that particular piece of equipment had yet to be tweaked by Sarth, and precious seconds would be needed to complete the complex calculations for jumping to lightspeed. Seconds they didn’t have.

The Hawk-bat shuddered as another near-miss from a turbolaser detonated near the aft quarter of the sleek freighter. The impact of the blow threw Sarth into a wall across from the overheating shield control circuitry he was trying to bypass. From a muffled groan coming from down the hall, he could tell that the hit had had a similar effect on Cassi. He struggled back to his feet, retrieving the dropped hydrospanner and other tools rolling around on the deck. Cursing at the sight of the now burned-out circuitry and the shower of blue sparks it was emitting, he quickly shut off the entire relay before it literally blew up in his face. Keying the intercom, he shouted a message to Selu.

“Selu! We can’t take any more hits! The shields are gone!”

  • After finishing the rewrite of this work earlier this year, I feel comfortable with nominating it here. Reserving my Archivist vote until other reviewers have looked at it. Atarumaster88 (Talk page) 22:03, July 8, 2014 (UTC)
  • At the current rate it's going this will pass sometime in 2018! :P (Some jerk is going to prove me wrong just to spite me. lol)-I'm the Chosen One 00:38, March 13, 2017 (UTC)
    • Well, unfortunately, there is not much interest in reading novels, and never has been on this wiki. It's completely understandable. The work 1) encompasses original characters, 2) is a follow-on to two other works so those would have to be read first, and 3) is pretty long. I can't blame people for not being eager to tackle a series of this magnitude. :) Atarumaster88 (Talk page) 19:26, August 27, 2017 (UTC)
  • So I don't think anyone else is gonna vote. There are no objections and this is literally one vote shy of the minimum. Couldn't this--the other nomination is under the same conditions--one just pass through?-I'm the Chosen One 13:32, March 15, 2019 (UTC)
    • I'm with you in that it would be nice to clear off the old nominations (and that's not just my self-interest talking), but I also am strict textualist when it comes to policy and would prefer that the community either has a discussion about changing the requirements or one more user vote to approve before I do such a thing.

      • I am up for a vote to change the guidelines. Because it is pretty unfortunate and unfair to the authors that their work is hamstrung due to a lack of votes when it is fairly apparent it is worthy of the accolade it is striving for.--I'm the Chosen One 17:37, December 26, 2019 (UTC)
