Prompt for May 9, 2015

Complete the short story / flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

“Full steam ahead. Helmsman take us towards the rift. Artillery officer prepare to engage the enemy.” Captain Robin Childs straightened up as his men, his comrades, went about performing their duty both to him and His Majesty. He was the rock upon which his men anchored themselves and he could show no fear in the face of adversity. This rift in the sky, this “portal” Doctor Philips had called it, was some supernatural force that threatened not only his ship, but the rest of humanity. He was not going to let anything happen to his men or to those he had left behind. Whatever came through that portal was going to feel the full wrath of his cannons.
