Each was strapped into seats on the space ship
unable to move they waited
classed as dangerous fugitives were on route
to a distant prison colony
on a barren and inhospitable minuscule moon
their journey would begin soon!
But Freedom fighters was their designated status
fighting against the evil federation
convicted and betrayed by a hidden informer
for now their oppressors had won
here heading for a certain pointless demise
they would be the winning prize!
But in truth was an option they could not allow
all that had been achieved lost
on board a soldier bribed to create a diversion
once the craft left earth’s orbit
then on time the massive engines were ignited
their plan would soon be cited!
Feeling the surge it began to gradually accelerate
there was a bang it went dark
the emergency lighting came on but it had worked
for seconds power was lost
their restraints had released all prisoners were free
surprise was the only key!
One of the seven was a master thief and locksmith
able to beat any lock or code
soon weapons were distributed the fight was on
moving towards the life rafts
excellent progress was made with no resistance
how could they get this distance?
Realising the inside man must be dead or captured
hurried as a trap would be set
nearing their final goal could see the soldiers ahead
here the battle fiercely raged
a group of prisoners had come but they quickly fell
their plan was not going well!
But the risk had to be taken firing seven ran forward
apart from minor wounds survived
hearing more coming took the life rafts and ejected
into the dark emptiness of space
the armed ship fired large cannons but missed
the federation officers pissed!
Before very long the small pods ran out of fuel
and they started drifting
the plan to get on a prearranged mining ship
approaching it was destroyed
then from nowhere like a miracle it glided
their escape had been provided!
The immense alien ship moved towards them
like it was guided by gods hand
an airlock opened and they were now inside
coming to rest the group of seven
were somehow directed as doors just opened
in the control room did end!
Then a voice they understood began to speak
telling them the crew were dead
and it would take them where they wanted
this was a living electronic entity
the freedom fighters had a powerful alliance
now to the federation real defiance!
This the beginning of many battles and adventures
against The Federation!
