A massive pulse of energy erupted from the Citadel. The waveform crashed against the approaching Reapers. Great electric storms arced across the surface of each machine. Then they drifted along their vectors. On board SSV Kilimanjaro, Admiral Hackett ordered a status report.
His sensor officer replied, "Minimal heat signatures from the enemy. Kinetic barriers down."
"All ships, this is Admiral Hackett, target the nearest Reaper and hit it with everything we got!" said Hackett over the fleet comm.
The combined firepower of hundreds of ships tore apart the nearest target. Then it shifted to a second and then a third as more survivors joined the fray. The Reapers stirred, but without their barriers they were easy prey for the allied fleet. One made a run at the Destiny Ascension, only to be ripped to shreds by a massive broadside from Kwunu's Thanix Magnetic-Hydrodynamic cannons.
The surviving Reapers jumped toward the Charon relay.
But the relay laid cold.
The fleet followed and now had perfect alignment to fire at the Reapers vulnerable underbellies. The last of the invaders fell to the three well aimed shots from the Destiny Ascension and her sisters ships, Pride of the Matriarchy and Dawn of the Republics. As the Reaper's mass effect core exploded the Ascension's commander yelled over the comm, "That's for Thessia you cybernetic bastards"
The Battle of Earth was over.
The battle to retake the galaxy had just begun.
