As Will laid waste to the army on the ground, Mark worked as fast as possible to get his mind back. “Got it, I really hope this works, it’s time for you to come back Will.” Mark spoke in Wills mind as he changed the DNA to get Wills mind back. Suddenly his rampage stopped. “That was strange thanks Mark I would hate to be stuck that way any longer.” Will said as he stood in the middle of a field of wreckage. “Oh I’m not done yet, now it’s time for me to upgrade your body, with the style of The Brothers Will, hold on this is going to be fun.” Mark took control of Wills body and spoke. “Active Nannies 100% Body upgrader imprint, Active Star-core 100% begin upgrade.”

His body tensed as it sunk just a small amount the muscles grew tighter his teeth went back up, as his eyes glowed yellow. He turned and smiled, as the scales on his skin grew longer overlapping, his eyes sunk and grew closer together as his face returned to a more human like face, and then a long metallic tail grew from behind him. He was now a more compact version of the beast. “I’m smaller I thought you were going to upgrade the body not make it weaker.” Said Will as he looked around at the army. “Who said your weaker the original creature was very strong, but it could be stronger, I made it much stronger. It’s now almost twice as powerful and five times as fast, with skin that is a combination of the strongest metals in the known universe with a little addition to absorb energy and expel it constantly. Now give it a try and let’s see if you think I made you weaker still.”

Will smiled then attacked, his body hurled forward faster than it had before, then he hit the first tank in front of him and sent it flying back into the air. He stopped and stood as he looked around the enemy closed in on him from all sides. The smile on his face grew into a grin as he began to speak. “Now I see why my brothers like doing this so much…” He laughed, then his voice grew loud echoing across the battlefield in every radio and com system. “I am Will 700, Will of the many faces. This planet in now under my protection I give you one and only one warning leave this place and leave these people. If you do not leave now I will make you leave.” His eyes began to glow brighter as he waited for a response, a minute passed and he got his response as every enemy in every direction opened fire on him. “Why do they always choose the hard way?” Will said with a grin.

He dropped down to his hands and dug into the ground, his eyes glowing bright. His hands and legs pushed and he flew forward straight for one of the rockets that had been fired and with animal like reflexes, he grabbed it and used it as a step, pushing it down as he hurled himself up to another one. One after the next he used the very things that were meant to attack him to climb up onto the air, then with a huge jump he hurled his body to one of the attacking ships. It opened fire and as the missiles reached him, he grabbed one, turning it back on the ship, and surfing it right to the ship. Jumping off at the last second and turning his attention back to the ground. Then, as the missiles hit the weapons bay of the ship, he lets out a loud battle cry.

The Jump-drives pull the ship and the asteroids that followed it into the jump, then two seconds in the Gravity-core was shut off. Dropping the asteroids out of the jump, just as they were about to impact the back of the ship then one second later, the Jump-drives shuts down. The ship dropped out of the jump just above the planet in the middle of an armada of ships.

The ship drove straight down at top speed straight for the planet as the armada of ships opened fire. Giving Will the signal, 30 seconds and he would be dropped from the cargo bay. Will began his countdown, as the ship hauled to the surface of the planet, winding, and swerve to avoid being shot down. As the ship shook, the captain looked around at the crew. “Just a few more seconds before the asteroids get here we just have to hold out a little longer.” The enemy fire grew closer to the ship as they started to lock on to the ship; they were out of time they would be shot down any second.

Then the shots stopped, the asteroids were finally here and they ripped through the enemy ships one after the next. The enemy ships quickly turned their fire to the asteroids, but it was useless shooting them only made them more destructive as the smaller pieces rattled the ships with holes. Will closed his eyes. “Three, two, one, its time.” The cargo bays opened as the ship pulled up sending everything in it hurling to the ground. As the cargo bay doors closed and the ship’s fall slowed the jump drives came online and the ship jumped, just as it was about to be hit by a missile.

Will’s body began to transform, his entire body grew in size, his muscles bulged as his arms and legs doubled in size, his skin harden as metallic scales grew out over his skin. His fingers grew long sharp claws, as his teeth grew longer and sharper, his eyes opened wider as they moved apart and his whole face grew more beasts like. His eyes turned black with red pupils, then he roared as the transformation finished and the beast took over. The roar could be heard for miles, then the container exploded as his claws ripped it to pieces.

Like a crazed beast, he attacked everything around him as he fell, smashing, and slashing at everything around him screaming out. Will was completely out of control. The loud roaring and scream got the attention of those who were on the surface of the planet attacking the Morfeans. They looked up and began firing at the beast that was Will. His attention was now on them. He looked down and let out a loud roar, as he swung at the rockets that were fired at him. The explosion only feed his anger and sent him flying to the surface even faster. Then, with an echoing crash, he hit the ground, his fist first as he punched into the ground, a huge shock wave followed. Then bursting out of the ground, eyes filled with rage, he began to lay waste to the focuses that were on the ground seconds after impact.

“What is all this for captain?” Asked Will. “Well, we are going to be dropping you out of the ship once we are close enough to the surface, and then we will be jumping out of the Nebula. We will then jump back in for the actual fight by the time you’re on the ground. John told me about what you will be trying, so you will be in this container, you will hear the other containers hitting against the sides of this one once we start our decent to planet. Once you hear that give it 30 seconds, by then if everything goes well the Cargo bay doors should be opening to drop you.” Will looked around the cargo Bay. “Well, let’s hope your plans will go off without a hitch. How much longer do we have before we are ready to go?” Asked Will. “A few more minutes once the calculations are done, we will begin. You get ready I’m heading back to the cockpit I will tell you when we are ready to go from there.” Answered the captain as he turned and walk out of the cargo bay. Will walked to the container and sat in it on the floor. “I hope your ready Mark.” Will said, putting his head in his hands sitting in the box. “I am don’t worry you will be in control of your body a few minutes after we hit the planet, and I have a few surprises for you when your back in control.” Replied Mark.

“Everyone get ready we lunch in 10, 9, 8…” The captain’s voice echoed through the ship, Will stood to his feet and pull the doors of the container closed and held on tight to the handles. The ship’s main engines powered up and the ship started moving into the nebular, as the ship picked up speed the captain’s voice came over the intercom once more. “We are going into this fight to help the Morfean race with no regrets. It’s going to be a risky battle and we may not make it through, but we aren’t going down easy, every member of this ship is going to go down in history for what we are doing not just for this fight but also for being the first people to help a member of The Brothers Will. So hold your heads high put any fear you have out of your hearts and let’s give them HELL!”

The ship headed straight for the asteroids, increasing in speed, as it got closer, the engines were pushed to full power, the ship headed for the asteroids faster and faster. “Start the Gravity-core direct the gravity field behind us.” The captain ordered and with that it was time nothing could go wrong from this point on or the ship would be destroyed. The Core turned on and the ship lunged into the asteroids, just missing every one of them as it flew through the massive field, towing the asteroids it passed behind it. The ship spun and pulled up as it began to align itself for the jump. The captain started the countdown to the jump. The ship aligned with the planet and the Jump-drives came online. As they did the ship’s main engines shut down, the ship slowed, the asteroids that were being pulled by the Gravity-core came hurling to the ship.

The engines roared loudly as the time passed by, two minutes in the gravity in the ship Failed and everything went weightless. The Gravity-core was too strong it was canceling out the gravity in and around the ship, and the ships artificial gravity generators wasn’t strong enough to keep up. Then three minutes in the ship’s hull started to rattle as if it were coming apart. “Don’t stop Will; give it everything till the last second.” The captain’s voice echoed across the intercom. The two remaining minutes seem to pass even slower, as the rattling of the ship’s hull grew louder and the roar of the engines echoed through the ship like that of a ship yard with hundreds of ships.

“That’s it, we are here, cut the power!” Alin’s voice came echoing over the engines, as Will heard he released the cables. “Deactivate Star-core…“ As the words came from his mouth, he fell to the ground. The ship jerked as the engines shut down and the gravity kicked in. Alin unstrapped himself and walked over to Will as he picked him up from the ground his body pulled itself back to normal. “Good Job kid now rest for a while, it’s time we got you to where you need to be.” As he spoke, he carried Will back to his quarters and laid him down to rest. He then headed back to the engine room and looked over the engines for any damage. “We are good here captain the engines were not damaged, but they will need an hour to cool down before we can go.” Said Alin to the captain over the intercom.

As Will rested everyone did what they could to get ready for the upcoming battle, and soon a plan was formed. The planet was located in the heart of the nebula, which meant that sensors wouldn’t work, but with John’s help they didn’t need any to get in without any trouble. They plotted a course through the nebula that would lead them through a field of highly magnetic asteroids. They would use the gravity-core to pull them into a Jump right behind them. With this, they would have a chance in getting to the planet without being noticed. However, because they would be pulling, the asteroids into the jump with them, when they dropped out, they had to head straight for the planet in order not to be destroyed by them. As the navigator set the course the captain headed to the cargo bay, he looked around and then pulled a large crate forward. He emptied it and then took the straps off everything in the cargo bay. As he finished Will walked in.

“Who are you talking to?” Said Alin walking towards Will. “Oh hey, I was just going over a few things in my head; anyway, I came here to see if we can push the engines a bit more. It seems as though time is running very short and I would like to get there as fast as possible.” Alin looked at Will for a while, then he answered. “Well, I think it might be possible, from the readings I’m getting I think the engines are only running at 80%, using all the power the ship can spare. I think if we can get more power we can push the engines to 100% or even pass 100%, if we can do that we will be able to cut the time down by at least six hours. But we will need more power than this ship can produce just to get the engines to full power.”

A smile came across Will’s face as he turned to one of the crew that was in the engine room. “Go tell the captain to get ready the ship is going to get a major boost.” Will then turn to Alin. “Get the extra power connections out, and hook them up to the engine’s power cell while I get ready.” Alin pulled out the cables and started to hook them into place, Will closed his eyes. “Hey Mark is there any creatures that you have become that can power the engines?” Said Will under his breath. “No, but there is one that is very conductive to electrical currents.” Replied Mark, Will Smiled. “I see where you’re going with this; well, let’s change my body then.” Will opened his eyes, as he did his body began to change, his body grew slim, his skin became and almost clean color as what seemed like an electric current started running along his skin, then his body stretched out like wires.

He wrapped his long Wire like Fingers around the ends of the cables that Alin had hooked to the engines. “Tell the crew, we are ready to begin.” As Alin sent the message over the intercom, Will then began to take slow deep breaths to ready himself. “Don’t worry, this should work Will, I will have the Nannies help channel the power to the engines I just hope it will be enough.” Said Mark as Will took his breaths. “We are good to go give it everything you have.” Said Alin from the chair next to the intercom while strapping himself in. Will took one last deep breath “Don’t worry, it Will be more than enough. Active Start-core 100%!”

Will’s words echoed through the ship, his chest started to glow, static filled the air, Will’s eyes started to glow as energy started surging through his body. Then the hum of the engines changed, getting louder as the engines started to use the extra power Will was pushing into it. “It’s working we are at 85% no wait, 90% we just need a little more power 98% now just hold out for a few minutes 100% and still rising!” Yelled Alin over the roar of the engines, Will’s hands pulled tight. “Push it all into the engines Mark.” As he spoke, the static in the air turn to bolts of energy discharging from Wills body into the air. The lights in every room of the ship grew brighter from the stray energy that flowed into the air from Will’s body. “It’s at 200% if you keep this up for five minutes we will be at the edge of the nebula!” Yelled Alin.

John looked at Will and spoke, we don’t know who it was, but they were stronger than anything we have ever come across. But it was mainly just one that showed real power. He entered and everything just stopped, the creatures attacked him, but they weren’t even able to get close and with a wave of his hand, they were destroyed. Then he just turned and disappeared. Will looked up at John suddenly. “How long ago was this?” He asked. “It was around 5000 of your years ago.” Will looked at John and spoke. “It was my brother Ten Thousand, he has told me a story about when they first started The Brothers Will alliance, he said he was forced to destroy some creatures because they couldn’t be reasoned with. They attacked the galactic console and because he was the one to stop them so easily, the people thought The Brothers Will be the ones who order the attack in the first place. Because of the attack, it took us fifty years to gain the trust of the console and finally become the police force that we are today.”

Will Smiled as he looked at John. “I’m going to do it, from what I know about what I have become I can change any part of the DNA of anything I become to make it into what I chose so the way I see it, I can make this creature even stronger and still maintain control of it.” Will jumped to his feet, then as he walked to the door, the voice in his head began to speak. “That’s right all I have to do is find the part of the DNA that controls its blood lust, and its mindless rage and remove it, and with the help of your nannies that should be very simple for me to do. But it might take some time for me to do it and in that time you may lose control of your mind and go into a rage.” Will stood in front of the door and turned to John. “Well, I guess I will have to change on the planet. With your help John we can find the best place for me to land so I can do the most damage without hurting any Morfeans at the same time, while I am out of control.” Said Will as he started to walk to John. “That’s a great plan I will get together with the captain and the navigator so we can find the right place for the attack.”

Will headed out the door with John right behind him. Will headed to the engine room John headed to the cockpit. Heading down the hall to the engine room Will spoke to the Morfean, he merged with. “You know I still have no clue what to call you.” “Well, I’m not too sure we never had names and now that I am merged with you it seems that my name would be yours. But if I really must have a name that is different to yours, I think it’s only fair that you get to be the one that gives that name to me, after all you are the one that owns this body.” The voice answered. Will thought about a name as he walked to the door to the engine room, as the door opened he spoke under his voice. “I know; your name will be Mark. So Mark, are you sure you can bring my mind back if the creature takes over?” “Well from what I know about the creature, its mind is all rage and anger, but from what I have seen on the way your body works now. The way we have combined means that even if the creature’s mind takes over completely it will not affect me seeing that my mind is more a part of the nannies in your body than part of your organic body. Though I will be able to alter the DNA to allow your mind to be unaffected it may take a few minutes after you transform before I can, meaning you will be out of control for that time.” Replied Mark.

Will and John headed to Will’s quarters to get their battle plan ready. “John I need to know what’s the most powerful creature I can be to fight off this army? Better yet, does your race know of any being that would be able to fight off an army?” John looked at Will as he seem to question if he should answer the question. “You know something you’re not telling me so what is it.” John looked at Will then spoke. “There is one creature that can beat any army, a genetically made creature of pure strength, fighting instinct, and rage. But if you try to become this creature you will lose yourself to it.”

Will sat on the bed; he heard the voice in his mind. “We aren’t hiding it from you, it’s just that we don’t know what will happen. Close your eyes and clear your mind and I will show you what happened to those who became this creature.” Will closed his eyes and as his mind cleared images of a large meeting hall came to mind, then of an office, then the entrance to a large building as the images filled his mind he began to understand and see what he needed to see. All these places were where the creature was first used.

As the thoughts flowed through his mind, he started to understand what the creature was. The creature was created by a team of researchers in an attempt to build the perfect weapon. The DNA of the creature was designed to take over that of the Morfeans against their will, it would then turn them into a living weapon. The creature had the traits of the most powerful of worriers and the healing abilities of the oldest races in the universe; its mind was filled with rage and an unsatisfiable lust for blood and destruction.

He saw as a group of Morfeans entered the large meeting hall and they were transformed into these things. They grew in size as their backs ripped out of their clothes, spikes grew out of them, their arms grew large as their fist became spiked and then their loud cries echoed out as the transformation finished and the rage took over. They went into a frenzy mindlessly destroying everything in their path. Nothing stood in their way as they attacked the largest meeting place. Will was pull to the office as one of these things ripped through the building killing everything in its path. Then the images flashed to one creature running towards an army, it pushed through the onslaught of weapons fire like it was nothing and began to lay waste to the army.

“Why did you do this?” Asked Will. “We had no choice at the time we didn’t know what the researchers had planned, it was a simple mission to get Intel, they said they wanted us to test a stealth suit for them in the process. We didn’t know why they would want us to even test something that was useless to us but we paid it no mind. We then found out that they just used us to test their experiment, once everyone was in place the suits injected us with the DNA of the creature, and once the DNA of the creature was in our body it took over. It separated them from the hive mind and made them into monsters.” Will’s face grew angry as he thought about the people who did this. “How were the creatures stopped?” Will said slowly with his head down.

John looked at Will and answered his question. “Well, I can show myself to the crew now and I will explain my reasons to them all at once, please call everyone together for me.” With that, Will pushed the intercom and asked if everyone could meet them in the meeting room in five minutes he will explain everything then. Once done, he looked over at John and asked if he was ready to do this. John just nodded as he looked out of the small viewing windowing in the door, waiting for everyone to gather in the meeting room.

Once everyone was together in the meeting room Will and John walked into the room and was greeted with shock. “Who is that and how did he get on the ship?” Asked the captain as John walked in and stood in the middle of the room. “My name is John and I am a Morfean, I stowed away on the ship in order to get help from one of the members of The Brothers Will…” As John explained what he was doing on the ship and about his races problem Will looked around at the crewmembers wondering how he would be helping when they arrive at the planet. The voice in Will’s head began to speak as John spoke to the crew. “Well then Will, we will have to make you much stronger if you are going to help us free our planet. You will need to become an unstoppable force if we are going to get through the forces that have arrived on our planet.”

“Forces? What forces?” Asked Will under his breath. “In the last moments that I was still connected to the hive mind of my race I saw an attacking force descending on our home world. They are also descending on all the outpost we have. Somehow they seem to have found everywhere we were hiding and they must be knocking out our defenses by now.” Will began to wonder then under his breath started to speak. “Your race has a memory of every creature that any one of your race has ever become right, so I’ll just become the most powerful one or better yet I will combine the most powerful of the races combine with the unstoppable force of one of The brothers Will there is no way they will be able to stop me.”

Everyone turned to Will, as he stood to his feet. “Listen up everyone we will be flying straight into a war zone so I’m not going to make anyone do this against their will. The ships will be dropping out of the jump before we enter the nebula that hides the Morfean home world. Anyone that isn’t willing to fight in the battle will be dropped off there.” The crew just looked at each other. Then the captain stood to his feet and with a loud yell, he spoke. “We will give them hell; let’s show them what we’re made of!” A reply of cheering was instant as the crew got fired up and went to their stations. “We may not be a battle crew, but we are the best transport crew there is and if anyone can get you to that planet we can.” Said the captain to Will as the crew left. “You showed us what you can do when you upgraded this ship, now it’s our turn to show you what we can do.” The captain said with a smile as he walked out of the room and joined his crew at their stations.

The captain’s voice came across the intercom. “Dropping out for cool down in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.” He hit one and the ship pulled as it dropped out of the Jump. The captain continued to explain what Will and Alin would be doing as he did the ship jerked. The ship was caught in the gravity of the star of the system they were in. It would slingshot them across the system in three hours. “Alright, while you reprogram the engine I will get to work on getting the engines main drive to class three and ready for the second core.” Said Alin as he walked behind the engine.

As Alin worked, on the engines Will reprogramed the engines and their controls to allow them to work at a higher level. Within an hour, he was done but that was only the first part he had to reprogram the ships control system as well. He headed out to the ship’s cockpit and went to work reprogram the whole thing; he even redid the design of the controls so they were more to the liking of the navigator.

The three hours of cool down went by very quickly as the ship’s crew worked as fast as they could to get everything ready for the new upgrades. The last planet in the system slowly pasted by them as the navigator locked in a new course. “Listen up everyone we don’t’ know what the upgrades to the ship will do so everyone strap in it might be a bumpy ride.” Said the captain as he strapped himself in for the ride. “Brace yourself lunch in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…”

The ship jerked and everyone was pinned to their chairs as the artificial gravity for the ship compensated. The captain’s voice came back on the intercom. “It will be a few minutes before the second core kicks in and…” He was interrupted as the ship lunched forward once more. The gravity-core had kicked in. The captain looked over at Will who was unstrapping himself from the seat. “How long do you have till we reach the planet?” Asked Will as he got up out of the chair. “I don’t believe this, but the system is showing that we have 20 hours left.” Said the navigator, Will just looked at him with his normal smile as he walked back to his room. Once he closed the door, he began talking and as he did, the other Morfean showed itself.

“So what do I call you? I mean I don’t remember you having a name.” Asked Will, as he sat on the edge of the bed. The creature slowly changed it figure and soon had a human body with a face of its own, then it spoke. “Well, I have never had a name we do not use names for each other the same way you do, but I can think of one, call me John.” Will looked at John and asked another question. “Well, John when are you going to let the rest of the crew know that you are on board, after all you can’t keep hiding for the rest of the trip. Besides me, you are the only one that has any real idea of where we are going and why we are going there. I’m sure you will be able to answer the many questions that the crew has that I don’t yet know how to answer.”

As Will walked over to him and began to sit Alin spoke again. “We need to finish hooking the power distributor in and then turn it on, so while I hold the core still you need to hock both the main and secondary connections in at the same time for the main distributor valve, then you need to do it for the return flow. Remember the main and secondary need to be hooked in the same time for both or the system will be fried.” Will took all four wires, one in each hand and lined them all up carefully; he looked up at Alin and took a deep breath. Click, he connected them all at the same time. “Well, I think I did it right?” Will said with a smile. “Don’t get too happy that was the easy part.” Replied Alin as he closed the lid to complete the sphere. “Now we have to give it enough power to active it and then figure out how to get it into the engine before it gets a chance to rip the ship apart.”

Will stood up as his body return to normal. “It’s actually very simple. Once the ship drops out of the jump and the engines shut down for cooling, we can place the core in the engine next to the Jump-Drives core. Once the engines come back online to start the jump, the stray energy in the engine should be enough to bring the Gravity-core online. Once the engines enter, the next Jump the Energy from the Jump-core will be more than enough to bring the Gravity-core to working levels and once we are in the jump for a few minutes it should start working and boost the ships speed at least three times over… Wow I’m dizzy.” Said Will as he put his hand to his head. Alin looked up at him with amazement. “That should work, how did you come up with that. I wouldn’t have even thought to try that, I’ll tell the captain to inform the crew that the engines will be getting a serious upgrade.” Said Alin as he walked to the intercom on the wall.

“Sorry about that I should have asked before taking control of our body.” Said the voice in Will’s head. “It’s okay, but next time make sure I’m not standing when I get control back okay.” Said Will under his breath. He walked over to the engine’s main console and began entering the new system upgrades that it would need to control the gravity-core to allow it to boost the engine’s speed without ripping the ship or the engines apart. As he did, Alin walked over to him. “How is it that you know so much about these engines, I don’t even know that much so don’t tell me you got it from me.” Asked Alin as he watched Will reprogram the engines. “Well, I didn’t get it all from you. My brothers always showed me different things and told me many things about how everything works, but I never really understood them. However, since the merge I have started to understand some of them. I know the being I merged with has so much knowledge on the engines that came before these so when I gained your knowledge, it completed the picture and became so easy to understand after that.” Will replied.
