More foul gas filled the air, sending a few of the officers with cracked helmets or broken seals into coughing fits. Another duo were caught in the deployed electrical net, screaming in pain as the crackling volts discharged into them. They fell onto of a building below, flopping and struggling like fish out of water. Null's fist smashed into the gut one of of Patrolmen who got too close, doubling him over. Spittle flew from his lips, eyes bulging with burst blood vessels. The round house sent another flying back, a stream of blood flowing from a caved in nose.
Laughter echoed out over the sky of the Bio-Dome as Yama became the embodiment of chaos and destruction. Dense clouds had begun to gather around the top of the dome as his storm power altered the density and flow of the controlled atmosphere, overriding the system's efforts. A concussive burst rippled away from him, like a massive bomb had gone off in the center of the port district. The densely packed building in the surrounding area were obliterated in an instant, duracrete blocks and metal bursting into tiny pebbles and shards. This pressure wave came with ring of dust and loose rubble, that flooded into the other nearby districts, choking the air and coating everything.
The Imperial Patrolmen realized in that moment just how outgunned they were. Sergent Bert lifted a large section of wall off of him and heaved it to the side. A piece of rebar had lodged itself in his left shoulder, leaving his arm limp and useless. He gazed up at the armored Saiyan juggernaut, slack jawed as more lightning and power was called forth from the heavens above.
He flew into ground zero, right into the path of the annihilation. He had to stop it, his body moving without thought--despite the danger. More innocent lives were at stake and he couldn't stand idle. So much death had descended upon Tech Tech already in the moments after the the provocation. It wasn't just a little street scuffle, but all at war brought to a neutral planet. The veteran Patrolmen had sworn an oath to protect the innocent of the galaxy against terrible monsters like Yama. And, here he was fulfilling that duty, to the point of his inevitable demise.
He under the hammer when it fell. Lightning cascaded out in all directions on impact. Bert's howl of terror was cut off when the head of the weapon crumpled him. It was grotesque, his body folding and snapping like it were some sort of piece of meat. The collision sprayed blood and viscera in all directions.
The already battered ground sundered with on the second swing, deep fissures spreading in all directions. The entire dome rumbled as shearing lines opened up, miles deeps under the crust. Lava boiled forth and with came the crimson glow of the apocalypse. The buildings clinging to the edges of the new openings fell inward from their weight, riling up a bubbling caldera of super-heated rock.
Great earthquakes could be felt all over the contained metropolis. People hid and sheltered themselves. Countless thousands died regardless. To an onlooker it would seem as though some sort of meteor had fallen from high orbit and struck the heart of the sprawling city. Yet, the dome above still remained intact, a strange anomaly.
Half of the patrolmen were down now, including their fearless leader. Bert had died a hero, but the rest realized that such efforts were futile. They fled the scene, using the lingering smoke and clouds of dust as their cover. As they did, they called for back up. The message was transmitted across the Galactic Hypernet. Any Imperials ships in nearby sectors would see an alert within the hour and come to the scene.

Stone was caught off guard by a rugged looking Saiyan approaching him about The Cryptomancer as well. It had only been earlier that day that he had his unfortunate interaction with the enigmatic hacker. And he was about to respond to both of them when everything went to hell. The earth shook violently, almost knocking him off his feet. The windows blew inward, dust and debris rushing through the openings. The shelves behind the bar all collapsed, shattering bottles of liquor everywhere. Buffeting winds pressed through the cracks, sending tables and patrons sprawling. Stone braced himself against a support strut.
Lord Fridga stood resilient against the wave of destruction, his sharp metallic talons for feet keeping him grounded and unmoved. His organic brow furrowed and his lips peeled back, revealing gritting teeth.
Stone's cybernetic scouter blared warnings about a nearby threat. The power level was quite huge. After it all ended, silence fell over the the Pile. Thick clouds of dust hung in the air. People coughed, groaned, and cried in pain. Stone released his grip on the strut and stumbled out the front door. The pond that had once resided next to Hagar's Pile was pouring into a great chasm, the water hissing aloud as it turned into steam. Sirens wailed in the distance, part of the ambient chorus of destruction. The tiny fighting ring itself and most of the spectators had all slid into the collapse, probably dead the instant they touched the lava.
"What the fuck?" Stone said.
Lord Fridga narrowed both of his golden eyes at Okata and stepped through the door as well, his tail swishing in the air behind him. "This is a nuisance."
"Someone is attacking the Bio-Dome," Stone said. "Looks like they hit the spaceport first. Fuck--that means my ship-"
Pooka leaped out of the boiling trench of lava, bellowing in pain. The lava had embedded to his doughy flesh, hardening and cooling in blackened clumps. Still on fire, he rolled across the ground to put out the flames and stopped to linger there, whimpering as smoke poured off of him.
"Stop messing around Pooka," Lord Fridga said. He turned to Stone. "This invader is strong. I can feel their presence. But, it's nothing I can't handle. I'll escort you to see if your ship is safe, if you promise to deliver me to the Cryptomancer."
Stone nodded. He had almost lost his life once against powerful ki wielders. Sure, he had his new armor, but he learned never to underestimate them as an enemy.
"Fine sounds good. Hey--Saiyan. If you want in on this too, tag along. Your kind love fighting anyway, right?"
