Chapter 492 Fight or Flight?
- Hope had been traveling through space via warp navigation over the last three years, but due to technological difficulties, the spaceship was unable to probe the situation outside during its warp navigation. When Lu Chen and the others last monitored Hope’s distance from Proxima Centauri b and the situation on the planet three years ago before setting out again, they didn’t detect anything abnormal. At this moment, however, as soon as Hope emerged from the warped space at the end of its warp navigation, Lu Chen, who was in the captain’s cabin, immediately felt an inexplicable sense of danger.
- When he hurriedly looked at the probing screen, he discovered at once that several weapons resembling nuclear warheads were flying toward Hope at a high speed outside Proxima Centauri b’s atmospheric layer.
- At the same time, the military had detected these weapons as well, and Du Fei contacted Lu Chen at once. “There’s an alien civilization on Proxima Centauri b, and it’s launched an attack on us. According to preliminary analysis, what they’re firing at us are super-hydrogen bombs. Each of these bombs is likely to have a yield of around 10 million kilotons, which means that the entire Hope Spaceship can easily be destroyed if it’s hit by one of these bombs. We have five minutes left to deal with the situation,” he said.
