A few months ago a Rheinland explorer found a new Jumpgate to a hidden system in Omicron Alpha. When they entered this system the first time they were shocked. It was the main reason for the rising Nomad activities in the whole Sirius sector. Containing one planet and over 20 Jumpgates to Nomad systems, Liberty systems, Borderworld systems and many unknown systems it's a major threat for all houses. Rheinland, Liberty, Kusari and Bretonia decided to send their fleets to get this system under their control. But the nomads were already waiting for them... hundreds of ships got destroyed and the whole Kusari fleet is still missing after they were chasing a Nomad battleship. But finally it was a victory and the Nomads had to leave. Because of this massive fight above the planet it is now called Crossfire. A few weeks after this important victory the houses decided to colonize the unknown systems. But because of the Outcast in the neighbourhood these stations and planets are under permanent attack.
Incoming transmission from the Kusari Fleet: "We are under attack by nomad forces... we need help our position is .................. who ever can hear this please help us"
The Kusari Fleet is still out there and under attack by nomad battleships and gunboats. The Fleets spread out to find a hidden system called Death Valley and to rescue the Kusari. Meanwhile in the Nephele System a new Sleepership was found which looks the same way the old alliance sleeperships looked like. Scientists entered the wreck to explore it and to have a look at the ship database. "Russian language?!?!... it's a coalition ship"
The nomad battle: Even with reinforcements coming to Death valley the Kusari are not able to destroy the Nomad armada... the fights already last several weeks now. Only a single Kusari fighter has found a way through the blockade in Death Valley and managed to deliver a disk which was found in an unknown wreck to the security forces on Planet Crossfire. Local scientist analize the datafiles now.
The Sleepership: This ship has a coalition origin.. but what is it doing here? It is allready a few hundred years old and it seems like it got attacked. Maybe the database is showing more information and maybe some guys in the new systems have heard some rumours.
A way to our old home, the earth, has been found again but there is no life anymore. The colonies are destroyed, earth is empty and everything looks like the nomads have something to do with it. The houses try to recolonize the sol system now and find out what has been going on. Maybe the databases of the old science centers on earth can tell us more about the history of sol and where the missing coalition fleet is.
The Coalition, we never thought that we would see them again but we were wrong. Before Earth got destroyed they managed to launch their three sleeperships. Two of them have found their way to the Altair sector and now we are at war with them again. Will this never end?
The return of the Dom'Kavash was a heavy strike back for the Coalition and the houses of Sirius. The Dom'Kavash territory is growing with the support of the Nomads and Coalition is close to a destruction. Nobody knows where those ships come from or how to survive their attacks. We have only one chance... forget the rivalities of the past and unite with the Coalition and fight together. This is the only way to survive the biggest threat that the mankind has seen.
Not long ago a giant fleet of Coalition ships broke through a heavy Dom'Kavash blockade and discovered a hidden hypergate. A large group of fighters entered this hypergate but never returned. What is on the other side? This is a question that hardly can be answered. All tries to through failed and Dom'Kavash motherships constantly jump through this gate to Altair. Only the united forces of the houses and the coalition might be able to find out what is going on there.
Enter a new amazing chapter in the world of FreeLancer... with Crossfire
John McCain, needing to reignite his faltering presidential campaign, accused Barack Obama in their final debate of waging class warfare with his tax plans and lashed out at the Democrats efforts to link him to George W. Bushs unpopular presidency. "Senator Obama, I am not President Bush. If you wanted to run against President Bush, you should have run four years ago," McCain said.McCain came out fighting Wednesday night in what was perhaps his last big opportunity to turn around a campaign less than three weeks before the election, but Obama emerged from the encounter relatively unscathed. McCains poll numbers have fallen as Americans appear increasingly unwilling to put another Republican in the White House at a time of financial turmoil and fears of a recession. Major U.S. stock market indexes fell nearly 8 percent or more Wednesday.The 90-minute encounter, at Hofstra University outside New York City, had the fireworks lacking in the candidates first two debates. With the rivals seated at a round table, McCain assailed Obamas character and his campaign positions on taxes, trade, abortion and other issues.McCain heatedly demanded that Obama explain his relationship with William Ayers, a Vietnam war-era radical. Obama brushed off the attack, saying he was 8 years old when Ayers was involved in anti-war activities, including the bombing of federal buildings.For all of McCains intensity, it was far from clear that he managed to undermine Obamas growing popularity. The attacks also risked a backlash: Polls have shown that personal attacks by the McCain campaign including advertisements about Ayers have backfired, alienating voters at a time that the economy is the overwhelming concern.When McCain talked about Ayers, Obama countered: "The fact that this has become such an important part of your campaign, Senator McCain, says more about your campaign than it says about me."The fact that this [Ayers] has become such an important part of your campaign, Senator McCain, says more about your campaign than it says about me." "Senator Obama, I am not President Bush. If you wanted to run against President Bush, you should have run four years ago," McCain said during the debate.As in the previous two debates, national polls showed a majority of debate watchers rated Obama the clear winner. A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll found that 58 percent of those surveyed said Obama did the best job in the debate, with 31 percent saying McCain did better. The poll was conducted by telephone with 620 adult Americans who watched the debate and had a sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.Obama lacked McCains intensity, as he looked to maintain a calm, confident, presidential demeanor and avoid mistakes that could undermine his lead. But he also leveled a few accusations of his own."One hundred percent, John, of your ads, 100 percent of them have been negative, Obama said. "Its not true, McCain retorted."It absolutely is true, said Obama, seeking the last word.McCain is currently running all negative ads, according to a study by the University of Wisconsin-Madison. But he has run a number of positive ads during the campaign.Obama, seeking to become the first black U.S. president, went into the debate ahead not only in national polls, but in surveys of most of the swing states crucial for victory. He has more money to spend than McCain and has organized a massive effort to get out the vote on Nov. 4.With few exceptions, the campaign is being waged in states that voted Republican in 2004 Virginia, Colorado, Iowa and in many of them, Obama holds a lead in the polls.McCain, a veteran senator and former Vietnam prisoner of war, has struggled as his campaign themes repeatedly changed: focusing on his experience, then his maverick reputation and, then to attacks on Obamas character. His choice of Sarah Palin, the conservative Alaska governor, has delighted many Republicans, but appears to have alienated vital independent voters.But an Obama victory is not assured. He has built up his lead only in recent weeks as the financial crisis has worsened and his lead, single digits in some polls, is hardly insurmountable.Obama has repeatedly sought to tie McCain to Bushs presidency. When Obama raised the charge early in the debate, McCain quickly responded with the comment that he was not Bush.Obama shot back that on the economy, McCain was proposing to continue Bush's policies."If Ive occasionally mistaken your policies for George Bushs policies, its because on the core economic issues that matter to the American people on tax policy, on energy policy, on spending priorities you have been a vigorous supporter of President Bush, he said.
