Chapter 405 This Is Planning to Cut the Backline?
Two hours later, on the defense force mothership, Ling Dongyu and old Yang walked into the room where Lu Ze and the rest were in.
With serious expressions, the two of them said, “The ship is about to leave the warp tunnel. Ena System is right ahead.”
Everyone appeared to be tense. Of course, they would be a little worried when there was a planetary state boss to face later on.
Ling Dongyu continued, “Soon, we will stop by at the solar system’s defense line. Please proceed there to defend.”
Their mission was to prevent the void beasts from crossing the defense line and entering Ena System. The battle in vacuum space wasn’t something anyone could participate in.
At this moment, the ship shook suddenly. Sounds of sirens were blaring. Everyone’s eyes widened.
Immediately, a robotic voice could be heard. “Receiving unknown special interference. Warp tunnel cannot be sustained. Quitting warp travel!”
What was going on?
At this time, the announcement changed to the voice of a desperate man. “Attention, all units! The interference of the wormhole is greater than we had imagined. Our ship won’t be able to arrive directly at the defense line. We will enter space outside the defense line! It’s estimated that we will appear 60,000 kilometers from the defense line and 100,000 kilometers from the wormhole. We can’t determine whether there will be void beasts at this marker. Please stay alert!”
“We might be jumping before a void beast pack?!”
Everyone’s face was green. They felt extremely regretful. This was a huge trap.
Lu Ze rubbed his head. At least, they weren’t at the center of the wormhole. They could probably still reach the defense line.
Even if they were among the pack of void beasts, he could take Lin Ling and run with his space god art.
Thinking about this, Lu Ze wasn’t too worried. He smiled at Lin Ling, making her feel very confused.
Ling Dongyu quickly said, “This is an unexpected situation, but we’re still very far away from the wormhole. Even if we encounter void beasts, we won’t appear in the middle of a pack. We can also go around to reach the defense line. Please rest assured everyone!”
Everyone’s expressions eased up. They chose to do this, and if they came with their own ships, the situation would be worse.
Subsequently, they waited seriously for the ship to leave the warp tunnel.
On the Federal War Net, there were live broadcasts of the void beast invasion.
In space, a wormhole with a diameter of tens of kilometers was spinning. It seemed like the scar of space.
Hideous-looking void beasts roared as they flew out of it. They went around the wormhole and then flew toward Ena System.
Destruction. This seemed to be the whole purpose of their life.
On the outskirts of Ena System, three artificial astral bodies with a diameter of 1000 kilometers were lined up tens of kilometers apart. The space in between was filled with warships that were tens of kilometers long. All sorts of energy beams shot out from the ships and the astral bodies, heading toward the void beast.
Their bodies were massive. As a consequence, void beasts would die from time to time.
Eventually, the void beasts closed in on the defense line like locusts.
Soundless explosions occurred across the vast battlefield. Even the journalists and the audience were a little shocked.
It wasn’t that there weren’t grander battles than this, but wars that were caused by natural wormholes were extremely rare.
Several people came to watch this, but at least 60% of the audience was watching the war at the Northern Border.
Among them, 80 to 90% were probably men. After all, Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha were there, and their opponent was a traitor to the human race!
This was enough reason to watch that battle. Still, one had to admit that Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha were really beautiful…
Meanwhile, the commander of the Ena System’s defense force, Lieutenant General Nigel, was fighting against three planetary state void beasts alone.
Beams of thousands of meters long sword light flashed across space while bolts of violent dark gray energy swept past. From time to time, there would be vibrant blue spirit energy approaching toward the void beasts from the huge artificial moons, but they were all dodged by the void beasts.
Every time they tried to charge toward the defense line, they would be forced back by Nigel’s sword.
The battle was intense.
During this time, in an extremely far region to the left of the wormhole, a silver light flashed, and a mothership, as well as hundreds of battleships, suddenly emerged.
“Look at that.”
“Reinforcements? Why did they appear there though? They’re next to the void beast pack.”
“They’re trying to cut the backlines?!”
At the command room of the defense line, Vice Commander An Cai was dumbfounded after seeing all those ships appear.
Why would they leave the warp tunnel at that position?
Were they trying to play some tricks??
Suddenly, he thought of something and roared. “Damn it! It’s the interference of that wormhole! Immediately notify fleets that haven’t arrived to take a detour!”
They didn’t expect the interference to be this great.
He continued bellowing, “Contact that fleet, split off some firepower to cover them… Never mind, they’re too far. Notify them to enter the defense line from the side! When they’re near, back them up immediately!”
Currently, when the fleet appeared in space, the interest of the nearby tens of void beasts was piqued. Seeing these ‘strange’ things pop out, the void beasts immediately went over to surround the fleet.
On the other hand, everyone in the room saw their position and breathed out a sigh of relief. It was a good thing they weren’t in the middle of the void beasts.
Although quite some void beasts headed over, it would be hard for them to stop the fleet. Thereafter, the fleet changed directions and flew to the left.
Meanwhile, the void beasts charged up and rushed over. In turn, the cannons were fired toward them.
There were too many ships. Just after one round of attack, only four mortal evolution state void beasts were able to dodge the attacks. The rest were completely annihilated.
After the second wave of attacks, those four mortal evolution states weren’t able to survive as well. They were shot by hundreds of energy beams, thereby cracking their bone armors. At this juncture, the cannon from the mothership released vibrant blue beams that instantly penetrated through the four mortal evolution state void beasts.
These beasts were dead for less than five minutes. Following this, more and more void beasts dashed over to besiege everyone.
Due to such, everyone’s heart skipped after seeing this for another time.
They might not be in the center of the pack, but this wormhole was too big. As such, the number of void beasts was many times greater.
Even at the border, there were still a few hundred void beasts. Among them were dozens of void beasts at the mortal evolution state.
Lin Dongyu saw this and shouted, “Suppress them with mothership cannons, charge out!”
Out of the few hundred ships, only tens could let out a mortal evolution state attack. They were powerful ships of the human race.
It would be impossible to create effective damage against those mortal evolution state void beasts if the fire wasn’t concentrated.
Now, they would have to rely on the suppression of the wave from the mothership’s cannons.
However, even if they charged out, they would probably lose some ships. They haven’t even begun the reinforcements, but they would already lose some ships. This pained Ling Dongyu’s heart.
