The first bullet suddenly sped forward with a degree of mathematical calculation above anything Katrina had ever seen and slammed into the barrel of the Andromedian diplomat’s gun, destroying it. The second bullet flawlessly shot straight into the path of the laser beam heading towards Katrina, distorting it. The momentum of the bullet and the energy of the collision dramatically shifted the path of the beam, sending it flying above the head of another diplomat. It fizzled out harmlessly against one of the silver walls of the room.
All this happened in the space of less than a second.
Katrina and the Sloon’ians didn’t waste time. One of the Sloon’ians threw a small metal device through the air which landed on the cage. As soon as it locked on, the bars of light dissipated. Katrina hurriedly stepped back and ducked behind the chair of the diplomat sitting on her right as the Andromedian roared with rage. He pulled out another pistol – funny how everyone was sneaking weapons past the GUC sensors – and tried to hit her. From her position on the floor, Katrina saw this blast fire through the now-empty cage and dissipate on the floor.
But now one of her (very few) allies had had enough. It was the diplomat in the chair she was hiding behind, the man who had spoken to her at the beginning of the meeting. His name best translates to Quezatan, and he wasn’t planning on Katrina dying today. While he knew she could take car e of herself (as she had been doing for the past 399 years), the battle seemed a little one-sided at the moment, and he didn’t want to take a chance.
Quezatan pulled out a slim silver tube. Yes, yet another weapon. He was quite proud of this invention of his. It took advantage of the use of quantum physics to store a large metal net in a tiny area, that would expand when fired. The technology used to take advantage of quantum physics was similar to the atom spacing technology used by Katrina to create her expandable jetpacks.
However, this tube Quezatan had brought today was only a prototype, as he hadn’t been expecting any trouble. The net it fired would only be 4-dimensional. While it would be able to restrain the Andromedian diplomat indefinitely, if the diplomat had any 5-dimensional weapons, he would be able to easily escape the net by the Universal Stacked Dimensionality law. Judging by the amount of weaponry the Andromedian had already snuck past sensors, it seemed likely he would have something that was 5-d. Ah, well. May as well try.
Quezatan pointed the tube towards the Andromedian and pushed a small button on the side. A tiny silver square shot out, rapidly expanding until it was a large, strong metal net that landed on the Andromedian and began restraining him. Certain portions of the net unraveled and then reraveled to cover more of the diplomat until it was almost completely sealed around him.
Unfortunately for Katrina and Quezatan, it was at that moment that yet another diplomat decided to join in.
