Five Sentence Fiction: Enter Trinity

We christened her Trinity, a fitting name for the culmination of human ingenuity, determination and brilliance. Everyone from the welders sealing the hullplates to the scientists at her heart to the citizens who will look up into the morning sun and know peace and righteousness will have her to thank.

They called her “Krishi’Kashanna”, roughly translated to ‘slayer of stars’ or ‘violator of sacred nights’ in Terran speech. What few Bri’nell survivors remain after this fight to finally curb their invasion will tremble at the very mention of the planet Earth and its people.

And that was just what we were hoping for, as it was the very reason she was created.


Yet another writing challenge I have now discovered, thanks to fellow author BonusParts. 

This “Five Sentence Fiction” should prove to be quite amusing indeed, and I look forward to doing more with it.

I hope you all enjoy!

    Nice one – spaceships as part of the earth’s defence forces.

  2. This reminded me of Thunderchild from Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds. Great imagery. Thanks!

    And to think you captured the essence of the ship’s creation in only five sentences. . .brilliant!

    I continue to enjoy your space tales, especially the more melancholy ones like this. 🙂

    You write the subject of war and its bleakness very well. (That’s meant as a compliment.) What’s interesting about your take is that, while you may not focus on both sides of a conflict, you can convey sympathy for both. I don’t know if that’s your intent, such as with the trembling Bri’nell, here, but that’s how I read it.


    • Thanks, Mayumi!
      I’m happy that you saw the more subtle emotions in this one, covered by the words of glory and pride for such as vessel, much as I imagine such praise was given to others like the Bismark or even our own Enterprise. Someone still has to be on the receiving end of all of that.
      Always a pleasure to read your thoughts!

  5. Fighting talk and triumph! A beautiful description of the ship that will save her world!
