Capítulo 6: The enemy is getting smartcopyright protection3PENANAFfbZ22Vkuu

               SDF-1 left Mars' orbit and was heading for Earth. The civilian population was in good spirits about this event and decided to hold a beauty contest. copyright protection3PENANAz4taiFQyhO

               “So Rick, you're telling me the mayor signed Minmei up for the beauty pageant.”copyright protection3PENANAIOQT0Jl2MY

               “At least that's what she tells me, Knight.”copyright protection3PENANADsdOrgQnBk

               “I don't know Rick, if she hates it so much, she might as well have unsubscribed, I think Minmei is really enjoying this.”copyright protection3PENANARbpllI0cgh

               “I don't know what to think anymore, brother, I don't consider myself jealous but....”copyright protection3PENANA0Z5RS5Ad7n

               “I understand you Rick, besides, Minmei's attitude doesn't make things any easier.... You told me she behaved very differently when you were trapped on the ship.”copyright protection3PENANAcKPqzhHpEi

               “I don't understand that girl, she's driving me crazy.”copyright protection3PENANAKwtaRPSR29

               “Rick, wouldn't it be better if you found yourself another girl?”copyright protection3PENANA939eU1kufs

               “Don't joke about it, Knight.”copyright protection3PENANARrdGRMXzbC

               “I mean it, Rick, how about.... Lisa.”copyright protection3PENANARW8l60bZRd

               “Commander Hayes! You gotta be kidding me, she hates me.”copyright protection3PENANA91gigajAFz

               “She doesn't hate you, you just had differences because of the accident with the veritech on Macross Island. The same thing happened to me with Claudia, now the commander doesn't take it out on me.”copyright protection3PENANA3w0gdS3brf

               Rick dismissed the idea and continued to complain about Minmei's attitude. At the end, the date of the contest was approaching and participants had less and less time to socialize.copyright protection3PENANANjbWFhWRhO

               The whole ship was talking about nothing else, even the pilots dedicated their entire conversation to the event. Knight, like the Rickotaku he was, scolded them when his subordinates or Rick's subordinates talked about the couple's tense relationship and made jokes about it.copyright protection3PENANA4qPkI5v2Fa

               The day of the contest came and Rick still didn't show up at the open-air concert hall.copyright protection3PENANAARtpcbuIda

               “Rick still hasn't shown up?” Knight asked Roy who was outside the concert hall.copyright protection3PENANASPUArTuWWA

               “Look, there he comes," he pointed his finger and Knight could see Rick coming with a bicycle.copyright protection3PENANATeuaIk6t6T

               “What are you doing on a bike, Rick?” wanted to know Knight.copyright protection3PENANAvHLY6YaBGo

               “I couldn't find any cabs! I had to borrow this bike from the barracks," said Rick, who was already calm because he had arrived on time, but the loudspeakers of the ship told Rick to contact the bridge of the ship.copyright protection3PENANAMzdG9FAECx

               “I wonder what they want?”copyright protection3PENANAfwLKGt4MXb

               “There's a phone booth over there, Rick.”copyright protection3PENANAGtSssZqCB6

               Rick went to the phone booth and communicated with the bridge, Lisa ordered him to go on patrol to a sector where strange signals were detected.copyright protection3PENANA1nGf4PUEux

               “Can I go too, commander?” asked Knight, who had entered the phone booth.copyright protection3PENANAbK3XuJrzwo

               “I have no objection, Lieutenant Knight, go quickly," concluded Lisa in a tired tone of voice and cut off the communication.copyright protection3PENANAKcRDFjC5Wd

               “Why do you want to go with me?”copyright protection3PENANAcXASdFI7jd

               “Because the music is horrible, the costumes are horrible, and to top it off, none of the girls are pretty.... In conclusion, I'd rather go with you.”copyright protection3PENANAFvXItrrU0Y

               Rick sighed knowing that he could not convince his friend otherwise and allowed him to accompany him, fortunately they found a taxi.copyright protection3PENANAjLbaoQu0Vq

               “Just leave the bike to one of our subordinates, that's what they're for!” Knight yelled at Roy, making him laugh.copyright protection3PENANAe7oP0BuIJO

Once in the hangars, the two pilots climbed into a veritech, which wore experimental armor to maximize the number of missiles that could be carried by a normal veritech.copyright protection3PENANA6KBvAB74kR

               “Are you sure Rick that we can take this prototype armor?”copyright protection3PENANASfgc8nZtXH

               “Yes, Roy contacted the hangar chief for use.”copyright protection3PENANAPuHWdTrLyY

               Knight, he could only nod, Roy's attitude was very lax in matters of protocol.copyright protection3PENANAfFJRajtinN

               Lisa was apparently of the same opinion, as she reprimanded the pilots for taking the prototype just like that.copyright protection3PENANA9g3ptcNsFK

               “We'd better get on with our patrol," Rick suggested, cutting off communication with the bridge.copyright protection3PENANAaufRqsKSej

               “Rick, why don't you tune in to the beauty pageant?”copyright protection3PENANAQtYzl9SOrg

               “I thought you weren't interested in Knight.”copyright protection3PENANACBwF1ZROsx

               “I lied," laughed Knight amusingly and Rick listened to his friend's suggestion, but Lisa interrupted them, ordering them to change their frequency.copyright protection3PENANAzC1Oushfkv

               “I'm seems...there's int...ference," said Rick, simulating interference and then proceeding to cut off communications.copyright protection3PENANAybZxLkHE99

               “Very well done, Rick."copyright protection3PENANAVLKrqLriAU

               “I couldn't let you do it, they wouldn't forgive you this time," Rick said with a smile.copyright protection3PENANAP9xRY2jfhE

               The two friends enjoyed the broadcast when all the veritech alarms turned red. The transmission had been cut off to show an exploration ship of the Greens, just a couple of metres from collision!copyright protection3PENANAKQQJoB45gd

               “NO!” Rick shouted and made the veritech back off, they had avoided death for just a second.copyright protection3PENANAebYZDpK4Il

               But death had apparently claimed the lives of both pilots, because the Green ship had fired several missiles at the veritech.copyright protection3PENANAZyuxptzJIR

               “Rick, take the flight, I'll be the gunner!”copyright protection3PENANAntHdd6Phc5

               “All right, here we go!”copyright protection3PENANAurgtqTTbYC

               Rick tried to back off as fast as he could and Knight was firing at the missiles, it seemed like all was lost.copyright protection3PENANAwYa1vzu5jd

               A strong jolt was felt throughout the veritech but thanks to the skill of both pilots the ship was not destroyed.copyright protection3PENANAWGGEUTKKbW

               “Get ready, Knight, it's our turn.”copyright protection3PENANAPFn69NZ3ZY

               “I've got them in my sights now, Rick.”copyright protection3PENANAFvWQwsq1xJ

               The veritech's armor deployed a large number of missiles, but the Green ship launched all its missiles in order to destroy the veritech's missiles.copyright protection3PENANAeupU8kOS4Z

               “What a good pilot," said Rick.copyright protection3PENANAOUFc0P00SZ

               “None of that, but this prototype is a piece of shit.”copyright protection3PENANAYyuVo1nO2V

               “Let's get rid of the armor and attack head-on before they reload more missiles.”copyright protection3PENANAxhpXcxi0qn

               “All right, Rick, you ram the ship, and I'll fire at the front so we can get through the enemy hull.”copyright protection3PENANA0fhGrhvrho

               Once the plan was formulated, the veritech got rid of the armor and proceeded to charge the enemy ship, the Greens no longer fired missiles, but their lightning weapons, fortunately, Rick's expertise on the fly, coupled with Knight's aim caused the enemies to be intimidated and their aim to fail.copyright protection3PENANArgXWbmXzb0

               The veritech weakened the hull of the ship and entered through the front of the enemy ship, a bold maneuver without a doubt, which caused the enemy crew members to abandon the ship.copyright protection3PENANAvIiVGusZvT

               “Rick, look... I think they were monitoring the beauty pageant.”copyright protection3PENANAmv8DcAVH1d

               Rick and Knight were staring at the enemy screens in amazement, as a loud explosion detonated in the place, so loud that Rick and Knight lost consciousness.copyright protection3PENANA6tt4pFqneB

.copyright protection3PENANAoKkGF1a80G

.copyright protection3PENANA1nb91oJW6L

               “Rick... Are you okay?”copyright protection3PENANA9ceDgDiH1x

               “I think so, how do you feel?”copyright protection3PENANAiphD5WEg4F

               “I have a headache, but other than that I think I'm fine.... Look, it looks like the enemy ship destroyed itself, it's a miracle we're still alive.”copyright protection3PENANAW528f3wZ0C

               “I wonder how long it's been.”copyright protection3PENANAK9PZN6D5NE

               “Surely a good couple of hours, look, the beauty contest seems to be over," said Knight sore when Minmei's image appeared on the screen, the girl turned out to be the winner.copyright protection3PENANAC63TJ9PoqU

               “Minmei, you won, you're Miss Macross...” Rick said surprised, but Rick's sad look made clear his doubts about how his relationship would turn out from now on.copyright protection3PENANA3m06vfa2fa

               “I'm sorry, Rick.”copyright protection3PENANAFZkuZ7BCcp

.copyright protection3PENANAgOwkIguyEU

.copyright protection3PENANAsIhtOMJZOY

               Rick and Knight were rescued, asked to report on the enemy's intentions and told everything they had seen inside the enemy ship. Global congratulated them on their daring and sent them to rest for the day.copyright protection3PENANA9uYuZXBAzO

               “I told you, Rick, there was no need to tell Global the whole truth.”copyright protection3PENANA0QDwalMFTq

               “You were right, Knight, but I still felt bad about lying to the Captain that it was our fault for tuning in to the beauty pageant, which almost got us killed.”copyright protection3PENANAzm9QQYDzXs

               “And what did you want to tell him, that we simulated an interference in communications to skip our duty? Global would have shot us.... Well maybe not Global, but Claudia and Lisa, and after finishing them, Roy would surely continue," said Knight suppressing a shudder at the idea.copyright protection3PENANAx6WwAVtcv3

               Rick's fears came true when he saw how Minmei no longer had time for him. Frustrated he had gone to the city park, Vanessa, Kim and Sammie approached the pilot. Knight who was walking by saw the scene.copyright protection3PENANA0wTE24ZOJT

               "The girls seem to want to prick Rick a little," Knight thought funny, that's when Rick answered a call from one of the tele-robots in the park, apparently it was Minmei.copyright protection3PENANAfigp96nMFk

               Knight was surprised to see the girls get behind Rick at lightning speed.copyright protection3PENANAedraK25deB

"Oh girls, don't be so mean to my poor friend, Minmei will see you and take it out on him.... On second thought, go on, unbutton your clothes a little bit," Knight thought, going from worried to funny.copyright protection3PENANAgf8aTaeTZY

               Apparently Rick was arguing with Minmei and the girls decided to leave so as not to make things worse. Knight decided not to bother Rick and went to the girls, whom he only knew by name.copyright protection3PENANAMeh2Eq91dP

               “Girls, wait!”copyright protection3PENANAlr3NCNPH03

               “Well, well, well,” Kim said with a seductive smile on her face, “if it isn't none other than Lieutenant Knight himself.”copyright protection3PENANAjhjrrcCG6B

               Knight stood up to the girls, but they laughed at him.copyright protection3PENANAFSQWVun5wA

               “Please, Knight," Vanessa said, "there's no need for you to salute, because neither you nor we are on duty.”copyright protection3PENANAUS1XFDKulL

               “But why aren't you in plain clothes?”copyright protection3PENANAyF2S7u5Jbb

               “I considered coming in in uniform to impress a girl.”copyright protection3PENANAlQ3bNZGa4c

               “Whoa," said all three at the same time.copyright protection3PENANAKY4MWKpGfL

               “And can you tell me which girl that is?” smiled Kim, who was playing with a fold of his clothes.copyright protection3PENANAsNrvGyZLib

               “I can't tell you girls.”copyright protection3PENANAWD2ZPPZw03

               “Oh, what a downer, Knight," said Kim, and Vanessa and Sammie laughed.copyright protection3PENANAJK2OxZyXFN

               “Come on, tell us," asked Vanessa.copyright protection3PENANAI8B9DhID20

               “Please” Sammie pleaded with him.copyright protection3PENANAOZERZuHY1H

               “Well, on one small condition.”copyright protection3PENANA2Ks5zZ47WK

               “Whatever you want," Kim said to him, and Knight got serious and with an attitude between solemn and gallant approached the officers.copyright protection3PENANAVFSxOvPx8S

               “Kim, Vanessa, could you introduce me to your friend? I don't know her full name," he told them as he looked at Sammie in a penetrating and handsome way.copyright protection3PENANAyXRcOQHvPJ

               Kim and Vanessa exchanged glances and laughed, but Sammie was stunned.copyright protection3PENANAdRtFW2E0aB

               “But what does Lieutenant Knight say? you know our friend's name" Vanessa said amusingly and wiping a tear away.copyright protection3PENANAK6gDD58tCh

               “But of course I can introduce you to her," Kim interrupted her, and pushing Vanessa away from the middle, she took Knight right in front of the little officer.copyright protection3PENANAlafdn335zS

               “Lieutenant Knight, this is Officer Sammie Porter," Kim tried to say as seriously and professionally as she could. “Sammie, meet First Lieutenant Jr. Knight, decorated with the Titanium medal for bravery and the medal for best approach to a girl in the history of...” Kim wanted to continue but the laughter did not leave her.copyright protection3PENANAONKisGk7Hv

               Vanessa was laughing, too, but she stopped when she saw Knight holding Sammie's hand and kissing her the same way someone did in the romantic movies.copyright protection3PENANAIsBY5f3dIG

               “It's a real pleasure, Sammie," said Knight and the girl blushed, but she did it even more when Knight came over and planted two sweet kisses on each cheek.copyright protection3PENANAu4RJheNlkn

               “Whoa, whoa, not so fast, Lieutenant," said Kim, who was now blushing too.copyright protection3PENANAe8aYqDFLKm

               “Excuse me, it's my French-Russian custom.”copyright protection3PENANAhsOTrT8v7R

               “You are neither French nor Russian Knight," said Vanessa, red as a tomato, but not as much as Sammie.copyright protection3PENANAcCW3mdh9zC

               “My father is French and my mother Russian," Knight replied without averting his eyes from Sammie.copyright protection3PENANAxNKIMblrX6

               “I didn't know that," admitted Vanessa.copyright protection3PENANANezC70vgwC

               “I like to have an aura of mystery around me," he kept answering and kept seeing Sammie's face.copyright protection3PENANA7Ie4LAh3KR

               “Oh Sammie, you got yourself a tall, mysterious brunette... And he's a decorated lieutenant too!” exclaimed Kim amused.copyright protection3PENANAFiEq0rCmSz

               “Aren't you going to tell him anything, Sammie?” asked Vanessa.copyright protection3PENANAsGO2iV3Ncz

               “This... I…” tried to articulate Sammie without any success. Apparently Sammie without Kim and Vanessa's drive was very shy.copyright protection3PENANAqkhFo3gF60

               “Sammie, I was wondering if I could go with you to the park today, of course if that doesn't bother you or your friends," Knight said, approaching Sammie's body dangerously.copyright protection3PENANAxMicdjDPGv

               “Of course she doesn't mind," said Kim when she saw her friend opening her mouth but no words came out of it.copyright protection3PENANAp9bdbu9eil

               Knight bowed slightly and put his shoulders forward so that Sammie could appreciate how wide they were.copyright protection3PENANAOIF6o39EJg

               “What do you say, Sammie?”copyright protection3PENANAEg3Xtgh66Y

               “Yes, I'd love to go with you, I mean, we'd love to go with you," she corrected herself, but Kim and Vanessa were already laughing at her friend's shyness.copyright protection3PENANACv7OIjiRyA

               The fun scene was interrupted by the ship's alarms.copyright protection3PENANAdmjTsIWCmG

               “We'd better get back," said Vanessa.copyright protection3PENANAS1XVYqcgwi

               “But we're not on duty," Kim complained.copyright protection3PENANAe9NmXwFfod

               “Are you out of your mind? We are the bridge officers, we have to go," Vanessa said, frowning.copyright protection3PENANAQBAau2SrEe

               “Come on Kim, come on Sammie... I'm sorry Lieutenant, we'll postpone the walk for another day” she apologized and the three girls said goodbye to Knight.copyright protection3PENANA7xf5tevFv2

               Knight didn't know it but the Green forces had surrounded the ship and were sending them a message, the first of the aliens.copyright protection3PENANAYKcM69iMpG

               Knight continued to stroll through the park and could feel the ship being targeted by strong tremors that were felt all over the place.copyright protection3PENANA0fiAqNDieh

               "I'd better go to Rick," he thought and ran to the fountain benches, hoping his friend would still be there.copyright protection3PENANAxmPNri2XYx

               Rick was at the scene, but he had left the sidewalks to sit by the fountain.copyright protection3PENANA0XhcJol2aL

               A strong shake shook the entire ship and Rick almost fell to the fountain if it weren't for Knight's help.copyright protection3PENANAIa11KrOnK2

               “Thank you, Knight, what's going on?”copyright protection3PENANAFipv5QO7OM

               “I don't know, Rick, but we'd better get to the barracks or the hangars, just in case.”copyright protection3PENANAFOKX1tlnvv

               “You're right, something tells me they'll soon cancel our break.”copyright protection3PENANA8eG9grB4Ol

               The two friends went to the barracks and then to the hangars, in fact, their break ended when they saw how Roy was calling them to give them new orders.copyright protection3PENANA7uDwZJnNRb

               “How bad is the situation, Roy?”copyright protection3PENANAAw0kt2OPpk

               “Not so bad, but not so good  either, Rick, did you feel the enemy ships firing?”copyright protection3PENANAkyz1IPsjUh

               “If I feel them? I almost fell, especially with the last one.”copyright protection3PENANAF1LiyL2VzT

               “Well, that last shot hit the radar tower hard," Roy told them, making Rick and Knight look scared, the radar tower was very close to the bridge of the ship, where Lisa and Sammie were.copyright protection3PENANA7ap8vTajIA

               “How's Lisa?”copyright protection3PENANAE38d4R2waW

               “And Sammie?”copyright protection3PENANAOPYA8wlasV

               “Everyone on the bridge is safe," Roy calmed them as he raised his eyebrows.copyright protection3PENANA3A5tIAmTT4

               "Anyway," continued Roy, "at this moment we are blind because the tower was destroyed... There were no survivors.”copyright protection3PENANAtx7CLctNIE

               Knight swallowed saliva, knew some of the people who worked there.copyright protection3PENANAKxuJ7CfsNI

               “The plan," Roy continued, "is to escort an ejecat ship, to scan the whole place and find us an escape route from all this shitty space debris. Rick, Knight, you and your men will escort the ejecat, Lisa will also be on the ship to instruct you.”copyright protection3PENANAnQitk03GUX

               “Do you think we will have the presence of the Greens?” asked Knight.copyright protection3PENANAKnvS0g4u4N

               “It is probable, and now they are not green but zentraedis.”copyright protection3PENANA8PkDzrfPU3

               “Zentraedis?”copyright protection3PENANAxiUPLeQPUK

               “That's right," Roy told them, taking the two pilots to a separate place, "the enemy made contact with the ship and identified themselves as the Zentraedis.”copyright protection3PENANANF8jy9zCDE

               “Did they make contact? What did they say?” asked Rick.copyright protection3PENANAqMuLp3dES7

               “They presented themselves and asked for the unconditional surrender of the ship, and did not add anything else.”copyright protection3PENANAIqqCgbQ71L

               Roy returned with the two pilots and ordered them to address their veritechs.copyright protection3PENANAROq07Y9HBM

.copyright protection3PENANAm2zRNYV0DO

.copyright protection3PENANA8leyXuKOBL

               “It seems that fate made me the one to escort you again," Rick jokingly said once all the ships had taken off from SDF-1.copyright protection3PENANAztAZuIYDqA

               “It seems so, let's try to get along well," replied Lisa with a friendly smile.copyright protection3PENANAqMC0EpYzqB

               The pilots flew attentive to any threat and this was in the form of attacks by zentraedi ships trying to shoot down Lisa's ship.copyright protection3PENANAnyWC6U6QII

               Again and again the attacks were repelled, but the mission to find an escape route was interrupted each time. In the end, the six veritech decided to carry out a chase to destroy once and for all the annoying enemies who did not cease in their attack and flight tactics.copyright protection3PENANAChcchGVgkl

               “Well, Shiru, that was the last one," said Knight, after tearing down the Zentraedi ship.copyright protection3PENANAQL8sLMSJmi

               “Sir, we are informed that Commander Hayes' ship has been captured by the enemy!” Hyoga informed him alarmed.copyright protection3PENANAlKQimXctOV

               “Damn, all these attacks were a decoy! Hurry up and meet Rick!”copyright protection3PENANAbqdnDv4yLp

               The three veritech flew as fast as their engines could and met Rick and his pilots.copyright protection3PENANAUBa23WOVGb

               “Knight look! They're taking Lisa to that big ship! " shouted Ricky, "we must save her.”copyright protection3PENANAe1V4jh2wKQ

               “I follow you brother," Knight replied as he prayed that nothing bad would happen to Lisa or his friends on the dangerous rescue mission.copyright protection3PENANAsWhFkVaouW
