The year is 2025, and the world's oceans have generally been regarded as a peaceful place, even if war threatened one part of it the seas, there would still be safe waters on another. Most of the world depended on the trade routes of the sea. Massive Cargo, Container, and Tanker ships ferrying goods, resources, and commerce from ports all over the world. However, if those lines were cut off, most of the modern world would suffer. The economies of all nations were all some how linked by the oceans. It was a known fact, but many chose not to see this potential weakness. A weakness that a mysterious enemy of Humanity would exploit.
For the past three months all known shipping routes used by cargo ships have been under constant siege, entire ships left as burning wrecks floating in the ocean or sinking beneath the waves. No survivors had ever been Recovered from the wrecks, whatever was attacking the ships was being very thorough, and using weapons which burned gaping holes in the ships, sometimes straight through to the other side. Needless to say, every country soon began suspecting the others of some kind of new weapon testing and attempting to disrupt world trade for unknown reasons. It wasn't until the enemy made themselves known that the world realized it was an old foe once believed to be gone. The Abyssal fleet has returned, and with them, they brought weapons beyond Man's understanding.
The year is now 2028, and Man has been losing a battle against their old foe. The advance weapons the Abyssal Fleet carried decimated Man's navies, and Air-forces. It looked like the world was on the brink of ruin. Yet, Man had one more card up its sleeve. A mysterious organization stepped forth from the shadows. They called themselves; XCOM. Their Mission had been to protect mankind from threats that descended from the heavens, but even they were blind to the threat from the sea.
XCOM, an organization that answered to no government, made from best, and brightest. They remembered, they were the ones to remind the world of whom defeated the Abyssal fleet in the past. The brave young women whom inherited the fighting spirits of the great warships of past eras. The Fleet Girls. Now the call has gone out to all nations of the world, to send their Ship Girls to Xcom so that together they can fight off the alien/Abyssal fleet alliance and stop the alien invasion.
Though little do they expect, not all enemies come from the stars or beneath the sea.
So this is a Crossover between one of the original Xcom games "Terror From the Deep." and the anime/manga. "Kantai Collection" Not that much knowledge of either group as things will slowly be explained over time though it would be preferred if some info was known about one or the other.
