Crowd funding has exploded over the last year! Everyone is doing it, so it's time that CIC jumped in too. There's a lot of pledge campaigns out there asking for money to help make a new game or some techno gizmo, but wcnews.com always aims high. We are undaunted by the unsuccessful bid to create a Death Star, and we've put together a plan to instead make the TCS Behemoth a reality.
Project Behemoth can totally work. So long as we have the time it takes to complete keel mounts and laser turrets, the mission to Kilrah will succeed. That's why we need to start now. If we can get the ball rolling today, there'll be plenty of time to complete the ship by the time we need it. There's no time to delay - head on over to WingStarter and do your part. Backers are eligible for some fabulous rewards!
The TCS Behemoth was the end result of the Behemoth Project, a top-secret Confederation military project that was initiated in the late 2650s. The project was led by Admiral Geoffrey Tolwyn during the ongoing Terran-Kilrathi War, with the sole purpose of destroying the Kilrathi homeworld of Kilrah. It was hoped that by destroying their homeworld, the Kilrathi would lose all will and means with which to wage war on humanity, effectively securing victory for the Confederation.
Unfortunately, the Behemoth was pressed into service before it was complete. Both offensive and defensive systems were not ready, and the Kilrathi exploited these weaknesses to destroy the superweapon. Were it not for the lucky Temblor raid, humanity would have been wiped out by the Kilrathi! This cannot be allowed to happen, so as responsible 21st Century humans, it's our duty to start work on the Behemoth now!
