Reid Stories: Tron Disc Battle and VECTO Chapter 1.6

Here's a disc battle from Tron: Legacy:

"The Tron franchise began in 1982 with the Walt Disney Pictures film Tron.[1] It was followed by various film tie-ins, a comic series and the 2010 sequel Tron: Legacy. More sequels are planned,[2] and a television series premiered on Disney XD in June 2012.[3] TRON also existed as the TRON command in the early versions of the computer programming language BASIC. TRON stood for TRace ON, which prompted the program to print or display line numbers for each command line of a program as it ran, in order to assist in the debugging of the program. In the TRON movie, TRON became a character who worked in programs to defeat evil elements trying to subvert the program." - Wikipedia

Here's where you can buy the digital movie: Tron: Legacy.

And here's my VECTO scene of the week:

(Previously: Sable offers Vecto a deal: If Vecto can defeat his prized SS6 soldiers, Sable will tell him what he knows about Morphaal. But when Vecto is shut in with the fighters, he reveals to them that he is only disguised as a human and that beneath that image is a stash of weaponry.)

The robot Vecto resumed his body image, blasting rapid pulse-beams through his hands. Soldiers blocked the energy beams or dodged and fired back. But Vecto's shields took the blows as he reached his hand out--littering the room with pulse-beams and bullets from his palms. A drove of soldiers died, and in retaliation, others came from behind with swords. They were met by missiles that Vecto launched from his back. Cannons catapulted from his chest, and blades slung from his arms. A green-haired soldier took a cannon blast to her face, a muscular one shielded himself from missiles but was struck in the neck by a blade, and a long-haired fellow was hit with a triangle bomb and blew up.

The weaponry kept coming. A cylinder gun formed over Vecto's arm, and he blasted Zero Point Energy at incoming soldiers. A guy with a staff spun his weapon at Vecto's neck, but it snapped in half, and Vecto returned the favor with an elbow strike to his head, breaking his neck. Then a female swung her pulse-saber at Vecto, but he caught it, sucked the energy from the blade, and punched her in the face, sending her flying across the room. A sword struck Vecto's helmet. It was grabbed by Vecto's shape-shifting shield from his head, snapped in half, and lunged between the soldier's eyes.

The soldiers stepped back as Vecto ceased fire.

"Any other volunteers?" Vecto asked. He existed only as the orb, controlling the floating weapons within his Force Field Shield in the shape and image of a human suit.

"Try fighting in zero-g!" yelled a bulky man with a metal plate on his head. He clicked a few buttons on a protruding wall panel, and the tall room began to lose its gravity. Antigravity mechanics in the room activated to give the SS6 a competitive advantage. It was how they trained.

"All right. Come," Vecto taunted as he hovered in the air, spinning upside down.

Bullets came at Vecto but he blocked them with his fingers and reflected some back at them. The man with a plated head tried to grab him, but Vecto's shield expanded over his arm, then hardened to slice it from his body. Vecto threw the arm aside as the man screamed--silenced by a blast to the head. Someone flipped against the wall and jetted for him, but Vecto shoved Air-to-Ice down his throat. Even a five-foot-radius energy ball didn't work on him. Vecto grabbed the blast and slung it past him.

"Any more?" Vecto asked and extended an energized electro-sword from his arm, followed by a grav-sword from his other arm, and lastly a pulse-saber from his chest. The blades spun in place, slicing through the image of a fake body.

(Does anyone stand a chance against Vecto? Will he spare any of their lives? Find out more in the next installment of VECTO!)
