NEW CUUSOO THEME PROJECT - http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/31711

*** GALAXY COMMAND ***

This new LEGO cuusoo project, is the direct result of a collaboration between the creators Kit Bricksto and Reekardoo, introducing a fantastic new theme with multiple set possibilities. For now, we are presenting two possibilities: The Raven Helicopter and the Gryphon carrier. What ship do you prefer? Don’t forget to leave a comment stating your preference.

Galaxy Command has its own storyline which is quite rich yet simple, as you can state by the very first chapter:

--- excerpt form the 329th Earth Chronicle---
--- Entry: Commodore Wulf, Commander of the Double-Axe ---

H.U.N. – The Humanity’s United Nations - had explored the solar system to its full extent. In its attempt to reach other systems and galaxies, the H.U.N.’s space marine forces made contact with a hostile alien force. These strange creatures were formed of some sort of black mater and when destroyed they created a devastating yet controlled implosion – thus they were called the “BLACK HOLES”.
After being expelled by this newfound enemy, from the Venix star system, H.U.N. forces believed the aliens intended to invade Earth and conquer the entire solar system. As all of the current Earth technologies were not able to defeat the Black Holes, the H.U.N. decided to create a special task force unit that would be able to defeat this dreadful enemy once and for all: THE GALAXY COMMAND.
Two decades passed and the first sight of the enemy was near Pluto’s perimeter defence shield. H.U.N.’s forces were obliterated in a matter of minutes. The enemy contacted the H.U.N. headquarters and informed them that they were the expeditionary invasion fleet of the NEBULON EMPIRE and that they should surrender immediately or be destroyed.
H.U.N. unleashed the GALAXY COMMAND along with its warships. A massive battle took place in the vicinity of Saturn – The Great Saturn Battle.
During this great battle, H.U.N.s forces suffered heavy casualties. All seemed lost but the galaxy commandos jumped into action and repelled the first wave of invaders. We were hailed as saviours, but only for a brief moment. When the second wave came, only the DOUBLEAXE made a stand while all other ships were destroyed.
The H.U.N. decided to surrender, knowing it would be futile to resist and risk extermination… but not before issuing us a final secret order -“To the DOUBLEAXE … Seek refuge among the stars… find allies to aid us in the resistance that we will have to endure… then come back to us as liberators… you are now the last shred of Humanity’s freedom… you are our last hope… H.U.N. – signing out – permanently”…
And so it was with reluctance that I commanded the DOUBLEAXE to follow orders and make a blind jump into hyperspace… we escaped… but we cannot forget those who stayed behind… I can only hope that one day we will be able to return and save our home.
Commodore Wulf, signing out…

---Entry finished---

HERE THE ADVENTURES OF THE GALAXY COMMAND START!
AT EVERY 500 SUPPORTERS WE WILL BE RELEASING A SCRIPT EPISODE FROM THE 20 EPISODE GALAXY COMMAND FULL STORY ARCH!

The RAVEN helicopter

This craft was introduced into the H.U.N. forces in the later years of the Bug Wars. Its main purpose was stealth intrusion and land vehicle support. Along with the heavy tank “Armadillo” it proved to be an invaluable asset, disrupting enemy communications and specific targets deep inside enemy territory.
Just before the Nebulon invasion, five star engineer Kit Bricksto was hired by the H.U.N. to improve it and incorporate new technology into the helicopter. The results were staggering. A payload of four Karkaroff missile bombs was added on each side of the main hull body and the old H-44 machine gun was replaced with the new Heavy Cannon laser blaster, capable of a fire rate of 600 energy cells per minute. But the main alteration was the incorporation of the two new silent engines near the back rudder. Not only the helicopter became faster, it also proved to be as quiet as a church mouse.

The C.C.S. GRYPHON

Also named “Big Bird”by its pilots, the Carrier Class Shuttle Gryphon has long been the warhorse of the H.U.N. forces. It was conceived, even before the Bug Wars, as a troop carrier vehicle, able to deploy forces in the front line. For that purpose it was fully covered in heavy armour plating and it had the fastest turbo jet engines available at the time. This ship eventually suffered several changes and modification during the course of the war.
Just prior to the Nebulon invasion, the H.U.N.’s Technology department, lead by prominent Dr. Reekardoo, gave it a complete makeover. Besides incorporating a payload of four Stinger Bombs on each wing, the new Laser Charge Blasters were added to the Gryphon – capable of causing havoc on a capital ship. Also, it possessed a new targeting system that was near flawless, along with the traditional eight seventh generation Bullseye missiles. It’s armour plating was reinforced and the new Atlas power engines were used, making it faster than ever while still providing enough room for four commandos plus a pilot.

The CHARACTERS
(form left to right and top to bottom)

COMMANDER WULF – He is the highest ranked officer in the H.U.N. fleet. He was given charge of the ultimate destroyer ship ever built – the DOUBLEAXE. A medal awarded veteran from the Bug Wars, he is father to Kord, but the resemblance ends there. He is very strict concerning rules but knows when it is of advantage to break them. He is the leader of the Galaxy Command and his fellow commandos look up to him.

VOLK – Volk is the ultimate soldier/commando with an extraordinary touch for bombs, guns, mechs and…fireworks. Despite his rudeness and lack of social skills, he is the strength element in the team. His preferred weapon when he is not in his mech, is the 66-power shotgun – as he always says – “At least I’ll always hit something with this”. Volk is also great company and always has a bad joke stored away for every situation.

MARKA – She is the deck tactical advisor and always the voice of reason and wisdom. She serves the Galaxy Command faithfully analysing every battle situation thoroughly and providing the best route or alternative. Above that she is also a skilled warrior, trained in the old kendo sword fighting art. Nobody knows how, but she smuggled her precious silver katana to her quarters. Better not mess with her as, like Volk, she too has a bit of a temper when people do not agree with her.

TWIST – He is the engineer of the Doubleaxe and ground vehicle designated driver. He has a profound knowledge of every single gear of the ship. He can fix anything if given the right tools and spare parts. He is also somewhat clumsy but like magic, everything turns out fixed and solved. Regardless, he is an expert tank driver. The “Armadillo” tank is where he sleeps… beds are too uncomfortable for him. Oh… and he hates flying… don’t tell him he’s on a ship.

XYN - She was the youngest Phd in the history of H.U.N. Central University, and since then she became a prominent scientist, that lead many teams to several important discoveries, including cures and developments in the biological department. She was single picked to join the Doubleaxe crew because she is the best in her field of expertise. But don’t let yourself be fooled by her frail appearance as she received full training and is more than capable of handling herself. She is Kord’s love interest and she likes him too though they both deny it vehemently. She thinks of him as a reckless, childish and spoiled brat but can’t help herself worrying about him

KARINA – She is also a veteran from the Bug Wars, but not nearly as old as Wulf. By that time she was quite young and joined the H.U.N. forces to seek adventure. As an expert sniper she gained recognition amongst her fellow comrades at arms and a reputation of a cold hearted operative. But she is in fact only looking for some affection, specially Volk’s who has always been a love interest although she constantly hides it behind her stern Russian accent.

KORD – Lt. Kord is the top gun ace fighter pilot of the Galaxy Command team. There's nothing he can’t pilot as long as it has an engine and it’s supposed to fly. Though he is definately an asset, he can easily get to everybody’s nerves due to his lazy, reckless, relaxed attitude. He thinks highly of himself and always has a smug smile upon his face, except when Xyn slaps him around. Despite this, Kord is a a true warrior and a true friend, ever present when needed. Even Volk likes him as Kord says Volk’s jokes crack him up - though they obviously don’t -
Kord ‘s love interest is Xyn, a special love-hate relationship.


TOGETHER THE GALAXY COMMANDOS WILL FIND A WAY TO RETURN TO EARTH AND DEFEAT THE DREADFUL NEBULON EMPIRE

we really hope we can count on you guys!

Really like the H.U.N. model, the other ones don't stand out too much to me though.
