WestAussies FSA Fictional Universe

Recommended Posts

Disclaimer 

This is not the Official Firestorm Universe.


This is MY universe, any resemblance to the Firestorm Universe or Real History is purely stolen. Any complaints that I am wrong in MY Fiction, will be ferociously ignored. 

I have drawn Heavily from the History of the Dutch Corsairs, Barbary Corsairs the Eighty Year War, and even a little of the Caribbean 1700's. I have Used Some Names (People/Ships/Places) from that time and weaved them and their relationships through my own Fictional future history. For My story I have created colourful pasts and deeds for these characters.  I have heavily modified ages, relationships and history to suit My Fictional Story. In some cases keeping the Name only. The history of the Barbary Corsairs and Caribbean Pirates, were times of Raiding, Murder, Slavery, etc. I have tried to keep my text restricted to generalisations and hints of darkness. 

If I have used your name or the name of a loved one, sorry, no harm meant. 

If you are a descendent of a Corsair/Pirate and feel I am using their name/life in bad taste, get over it. It was about 3000 years ago. 

 

The Intention of this thread is to provide a clean slate for my Fictional Ramblings. My FSA works in progress and general hobby stuff will still appear in my other thread. This thread will be updated as I work to Write a background and paint the force to match. Only completed Mini's will feature here. 

I don't know how often I will be able to update this. 

I hope you find it Interesting/enjoyable

Admiral De Veenboer
Ivan Dirkie De Veenboer was born to slavery on Terran resource mining station GDX-712. Ivan's mother died in childbirth and he never knew his father. Ivan lived a hard life of labour, in a world where life was cheap and death was free. He quickly learnt that if he wanted something, he needed to take it from someone else. Ivan also learnt that to take something from someone, you had to Dominate them, completely. The Harshness of life in a mining colony did not crush Ivan, instead it hardened him and forged a young man. His Strength and Brutality encouraged many of his fellow slaves to become his followers. Jan Janszoon, Bonnie and Jack Rackham were his most loyal and trustworthy followers. 

When Ivan was aged 16 a Corsair Raiding Party led by Captain Zymen Danseker attacked GDX-712.  Ivan was captured, but not before bringing down more than 2 dozen of Captain Danseker's men with his bare hands. Zymen saw something in Ivan. Instead of selling him to slavers with the other captives, he put him to work and they developed a mutual trust. Ivan became a ruthless and brutal tactician, capable of easily predicting the enemy and leading them into traps. Often using a recently captured ship to lure in a much larger ship.

With a rapidly growing victory streak, Captain Ivan Dirkie De Veenboer quickly went from leading a squadron of Outlaw Frigates to a squadron of Brigand Cruisers, to commanding an entire Patrol Fleet. 

Aged 28, Ivan lead a crippling campaign of raids against Terran Shipping lines. The Notoriety and Wealth Ivan had accumulated was sufficient to buy his freedom from Admiral Danseker.

Ivan acquired more ships, and promoted followers who were both Loyal and capable, as their Captains. He took Cartagena Station (A Germinon Class Repair Station) from its previous owners. Ivan's men have fitted stolen Weapons, Cloaking Technology and a Fold Space Drive to the Station. The Station serves as a base of operations. With the Cloaking field and mobility of the Fold Space Drive it has become almost impossible for their enemies to find.

Admiral Ivan Dirkie De Veenboer commands his fleet from a Racketeer Carrier, the "Man of War". Admiral Veenboer's men have outfitted the "Man of War" to support more than double its standard compliment of Fighters and Bombers. Highly trained Deck Crews Repair/Refuel/Rearm the Fighters and Bombers at an incredible rate. 

image.jpg

Ivan purchased the debt of his old acquaintances Jan Janszoon and Jack Rackham and gave them each command of a small squadron of Outlaw Frigates. Ivan began trading with the OSO. 
This was when Admiral Danseker introduced Ivan to Tom Greyson (Ex Directorate Tactician, gone Private Businessman). The 2 men were from vastly different pasts, but they had the same vision of the future. 
Ivan was convinced by "Old Man" Rob to create a Partnership. Following Rob's advice the Veenboer Corsairs have grown and strengthened. Many other Corsairs have begun to flock to The call of Admiral De Veenboer. He has expanded his personal assets and created valuable allies. 

Ivan has been setting his sights on the increased number of Terran Transports in the area. He feels that a person does not deserve what they have, if they can not fight to keep it. 

The recent successes and expansion of the Veenboer Corsairs has attracted the attention of "The Watchmen of the Stars". The Tarakian High Lord has sent a small patrol force to investigate and report on the threat level.

That's nice, I have a small corsair fleet coming, I really like the look of the ships.  I was thinking of black and yellow as well but the entire ships.

"Old Man Rob" had a long and productive career in the Directorate Naval Command Consortium, before retiring to the life of a Privateer. 

image.jpg

Born to wealthy and influential Parents Rob Greyson was given a Full Corporate Education. He grew up in luxury, wanting for no material possessions. His parents felt that discipline and boundaries were more important than emotional attachment. At the age of 8 Rob was selected for Advanced Training & Development. 

Rob Graduated early at age 16 with full honours. He was accepted for a position at the Resource & Personnel Division, He showed a strong aptitude for Predictive Market Analysis and Product Distribution. 

At the age of 24 Rob became the youngest analyst to be given control of a distribution team. After a few months his quarterly results were setting new Key Performance Indicators (KPI) across the Division.

At age 33 Dr Rob Greyson was transferred to the Department of Human/Nonhuman  Resources - Productivity & Development. Utilising a newly created Strength, Weakness, Oportunity and Threat Analsys (SWOT) formula, Dr Greyson Increased Productivity and cut losses. Works Raptor Assault Troop modification and re-training centres were optimised by Dr Greyson's business development techniques. 

At age 42 The Naval Command Consortium (Influenced by the Works Raptor) transferred Dr Greyson to Zenia where he quickly used his influence to set up a series of Private Consulting Firms (including, Facilitation Process Inc, Strategic Resources Consulting , Strategic Human Resources Development Group), he used his skills to provide Planetary Acquisition Analysis, Personnel Redevelopment Programs and Resource Distribution Plans.  

Dr Greyson developed an Advanced Contractor Incentive Program, allowing him increased access to Privateer ships. By utilising Contractors, Dr Greyson was able to conduct his less moral missions without fear of audit. 

Dr Greyson Authorised development of many new weapon Technologies including an experimental fusion of organic and inorganic material forged together by a Directorate-engineered military nano-virus. Final Approval and Distribution of the nano-virus was not under his control. 

During the following decades Dr Rob Greyson Accumulated Companies, Wealth, Allies and Influence. Dr Greyson worked with Directorate Personnel as well as Allied and Independent Contractors. He found it much easier to achieve his goals through Independent contractors such as Captains Zymen Danseker and John Ward. 

At the age of 78 Dr Greyson tired of the Restrictive and Short sighted Policies of the Corporate Personnel Research & Development Committee. Rob Greyson sold off ties to Zenia and utilising contacts in the Department of OmniDyne Special Operations Shipping & Transfers, acquired a Foundry class Dreadnought.

The Dreadnought "Swift Decision" became his mobile base of operations. "Old Man" Rob began working with several independent shipping groups and offering his services. This was when "Old Man" Rob was introduced to Admiral De Veenboer. The two men were from vastly different pasts, but they had the same vision of the future.  Veenboer also introduced his X-31 ally John Ward to the "Old Man". Rob has begun providing John Ward with advanced Intelligence on targets he selects. 

Rob gathered Corporate and R&D personnel he trusted and built facilities in Admiral Veenboer's Germinon Class Repair Station, "Cartagena Station". Old Man Rob's Personnel Development Teams began improving the operational effectiveness of Admiral Veenboer's staff. 
Rob uses Predictive Algorithms to develop Bussiness plans, his skills at Market Analysis and Product Development is rapidly growing their combined businesses.

(Picture above; Old Man Rob and Admiral Ivan Dirkie De Veenboer meet to exchange valuable intelligence)

Although Rob has invested considerable resources into upgrading  Cartagena Station as a joint operations base, his true base of power is his Dreadnought, the "Swift Decision". He keeps it mobile and well defended, it is frequently seen supporting his operations in battle. The forces of the Alliance of Kurak are dedicating resources to finding and destroying the "Swift Decision". Old Man Rob's skills at Strategy and Dis-Information has left many Terran Captains believing the ship is a ghost that can appear anywhere in the galaxy without warning and disappear just as quick.
