"Are you sure thats what you saw?" asked Captain Kheiron of the gunship pilot before him,
"The flight recorders dont lie, sir"
"I'm not asking about what your flight recorder saw though am I?"
"No sir"
"Damn right, now be gone"
"Aye sir"

The Captain now sat back in quite contemplation. What a stroke of 'luck', a fleeing ship leading a flight of gunships right up to a rebel base. Couldn't of been planned better. Now Kheiron had the chance to crush some rebels, and Kheiron really liked crushing rebels.

The ISDII - Theoi was ready for departure within the hour and in another thirty minutes the Interdictor Magnetize would arrive for support. Victory was certain.

After General Mel'feyla finsihed his report on the upcoming mission. Mon mothma turned her attension over to commander Sarns location. She guestured for him to begin his report. When her comlink started beeping.

" Yes what is it ?" She asked

<" I'm sorry to distrube you mam, But our scouts in the outer sectors of this system have spotted two imperial craft coming right for us. You were right about those gun boats relaying what they found to the nearest imperial fleet. our outposts On C-398 and C-399 are sending everything they got to slow them down....*Static*">

" Major Rebbon,Major !...Damn the imperials must have jammed the signal. It seems this mission breifing will have to wait Gentlemen. General I want you to send the evacuation order immeditily,tell all personal to be on full alert and ready the transports." She ordered.

The bothain gave her a quick salute before activting his comlink. In a few moments the alarms started to blare and the hallways filled with rebel personal, all rushing to get what equipment and weapons to the nearest transport.

While all this was going on outside the office. Mon mothma again answered another call. this one from the commander of the Home One.

" Yes ackbar ?"

the grively sounding voice of the mon-calamari commander soon filled the reciver and caught the attension of Black Nova squadrons commander. Curious as to way the Rebels alliance moble base was here. He leaned forward to get as much as he could out of their conversation.

He couldn't hear much expect for words like Empire and twenty minutes. But that was enough to tell hium that most of the conversation was about how much time they had to prepare for the imperial attack.

Suddenly Sarns spotted a whtie flash of light just outsifde the veiwport behind mon mothmas desk. A large shape flew out of the light and floated just outside the station. It didn't take Sarn long to recongise the Home One.
But he was still surpirsed none the less.

It wasn't until mon mothma called to him. that he suddenl;y snaped out of his daze. He quickly looked up to her and stood in attension.

" Mam, Your orders ?" he asked

" Commander Sarn I want you and your squadron to escort me and the other transports safly to the home ones hangers." She said. " As you well know. Dark Knight Base is more of a shipyard and refueling station rather then a full-fledged military installation. So protection is limited. We only have your squadron,Two Corellian Corvettes,The Neb-b frigate Revenge and the Home One to protect us against whatever the imperials will throw at us." She said in a matter of factly way. She looked at the commander for awhile, to make sure he had gotten everything. Once she was sure she hadn't lost him she countinued.

" That's way I want your squdron to escort the home one to safty. Your ship and the ships of your frineds will be placed aboard for safe keeping. But for now we need to conscript them for tempory evacutation duty."

" Yes mam I understand compeltly, But..." he said hesitantly

" Go on commander" she said "what is on your mind ?" she asked him.

" i was wondering if the two squadrons aborad the Revenge and the other squadrons aboard the Home One will add us in battle ?"
he asked her.

" Yes. The other squadrons are even now heading toward all apporch and jump vectors into this system. They'll hold off as many as they can while we escape. We have about twenty minutes before they attack commander."

" Then We shall use our time wisly madam. Black Nova Squadron will not fall you." Sarn said in a proud yet detremed tone.

" i'm glad to hear that commander. Get your sqadron ready and meet me in the hanger in ten minutes. May the foirce be with you."

Sarn quickly saluted her one last time before running out the door and towards his room. Once there he hurridly gathered all of his belongs and made a mad dash for his ship. On the way there he ran into his droid kodachi.

" Okay girl i need you to drop this off for me at the Star and tell Teresk and the other to head for the Home One Immdeitly."

< Whistle,Buzz,Beep Boop ?>

" yes I need you here with me. i can't fly my x-wing without a droid now can I." he asked playfully before He and the droid Continued on their way.
"What the heck do you mean Trilogy ?!
Trilogy my ASS !!"

The general quarters alarm went off half way to Kirin's quarters. Ironically Echo had just roled up with Kirin's dress uniform. Kirin's face seemed to slide off, then it turned into a highly irratated expression. "I am never going to get any work done now that we stirred that hornets nest. Ariane, Echo will lead you to my quarters unless you want to come and join us in formation."

Echo beeped and shooved the uniform into Kirin's hands.

"Now what?" Winters grumbled as he grabbed his stuff. The intercom announced that Imperial warships had been spotted in system and were closing on the base.
What a surprise...
He grabbed his belongings which were stuffed in two duffel bags and yelled at Bullseye to follow him to the hangar.
How many times now... he wondered as he and his droid raced through the corridors. He would have to do a quick change into his flight suit if he didn't want to risk ejecting into the vacuum with nothing more then his regular clothes on.
"Damn, why does this always happen at the worst times?" he asked no one in particular.
If you're going to do something, do it right. Or at least don't let the other side know you're cheating.

"You can't help but admire the Rebels dogged determination, but you really have to question thier sanity" Captain Kheiron remarked as the sound of battle penetrated the walls of the bridge, "Like moths to a flame really, poor fools"

The duo of Imperial ships made thier way casually through the insignificant obstacle of Rebel ships, not a bit distracted from thier mission.

Dark Knight base shook from a Volley from the imperials, grasping the wall to steady herself Ariane groaned

"One of these days I'll get this damn shower!"

She quickly grabbed her lightsaber and exited the quarters and made her way to the command deck.


Hanger deck of the Theoi.
Imperial prototype Orthos.

A number of imperial engineers hurriedly rush around the experimental ship making last minute modifications. From the cockpit of the ship a man in a pilots uniform is busily barking orders to them.

"Make sure the power regulator is re-modulated to the new shield harmonics!" he quickly barks to an engineer working on the rear of the ship, before turning to address another working on the targeting array in the front, "You! make sure the alignment on those targeting scanners is correct. I'll make your life a living misery if I have to continually compensate for an error during combat!"

Both engineers hurriedly nod before tending to their assigned chores.

Suddenly a voice called out from across the hanger "Hey Talar imperial engineers are the best in the galaxy they'll do there job!"

Spining around he saw a young, blonde haired, woman striding confidently across the hanger towards the ship. Her hair tied up neatly she wore a black imperial flightsuit, her helmet tucked neatly under her right arm. She strode right up to the side of the ship and looked up at him with a half smile

"Now I believe you are in my seat! Get into the gunner seat" she snaps.

Quickly he responds pulling himself out of the pilot position and scrambling into the gunner ball. As he is securing his helmet an engineer gives the all clear signal to the woman who salutes her response. Settling into the pilot position she powers the weapons and power systems and the relative quiet of the hanger is broken by the rising chorus of the gunship's powerful engines.

"Engines powering up"

"Weapon systems ok!"

"Targeting system green"

"Shields charged"

"Weapon config! ........... Fighter intercept!"


She pulled on and secured her helmet and opened a com line to the tactical officer on the bridge.

"Theoi this is Orthos we are ready to go!"

"Orthos I'm assigning Tie Interceptor group Beta to you. You are to guard the Bombers as they attack the rebel outpost. Let no one stand in your way. For the Emperor!"

"Just another Turkey shoot" smiled the pilot as the Orthos and her flight of Tie Interceptors dropped from the Theoi and raced to take protective positions around the attacking bombers.

Kirin intercepted Winters in the Hanger. Forunately for Kirin, he still hadn't taken his flight gear off from the last mission. "Didn't take them long eh David? In any case, our orders are to cover Dark Knight and Home One, I commed Sarn just a second ago. I want you to be ready to hyperjump in any direction. With our luck they brought that all gun chunk of metal that took Ami out of action."

Echo loaded into the x-wing and Kirin stuffed his bag into the cockpit as he had always done. "Where's Sarn?" Kirin asked after a minute.

Alpha and Beta bomber squadrons were making good progress towards the rebel facility. The facility was to be there primary target and then the large rebel cruisers would be next. One of the cruisers had already been identified as 'Home One' the rebelion flag ship. Taking that ship down would be a great bonus for the empire. But priorites were first the rebel facility was to be crippled to stop it re-enforcing the rebel ships.

As the bombers closed on firing range the Orthos picked up a squadron of rebel signals on an intercept course.

"Interceptors Alpha and Beta incoming targets on bombers left flank, Alpha squad form up. Beta squad stay with the bombers!" commanded the Orthos pilot as she powered the Orthos forward towards the incoming rebel ships.

"Ready for some fun Talar?" she queried as she quickly checked the gunships systems.

"Yes Sir!" replied the gunner.

The Orthos and her wing of Interceptors charged headlong into the flight of rebel Y wings and X wings. On both sides explosions marked the loss of a number of ships. The Orthos for her part cut a burning swath of destruction right throught the rebels main line as ship after ship fell to her massive firepower. As the pilot pulled the heavy gunship around to bear on another happless Y-wing her com line cracked into life as the Theoi's first and second bomber wings reported

"Torpedo's away!"

This time the Rebel scum would not escape!

Outside Dark knight bases hanger, Sarn's personal ship the Corellia star. Lead the group of rag-tag rebel shuttles to the safety of home one's hanger bays. Beside the Star ,Sarn stood watch in his x-wing fighter. Ever viligent for imperial bombers. He makes a quick visual scan with his scopes and is relifed to find that they were for the moment out of harms way.

" This is nova 1 to star all clear here. Get the Big Boss on board ASAP. " he said into the comm.

" Gottcha Nova 1 and take care of yourself." Teresk repiled.

Sarn watched as his ship begin to slowly pull away from his fighter as it flew into the Home One's hanger bay. To him the entire seen looked like the open mouth of some great beast of old was waiting to devour his ship,as soon as it passed inside. He conitinued to watch the shirking shape of his freighter until it had gone out of his veiw. Only when he was certian that the ship caring both his friends and mon mothma was safe. did he return to his duty. " This is nova 1 to all nova Big Boss is safe, I repete big boss is safe. Continue with the escort mission and only engage the enemy if they get to close. Nova 1 out. "

Winters' X-wing was finally prepped and ready. After watching the Commander's freighter and X-wing escape, he left Kirin's question unanswered. He activated the repulsorlift engines and then gently floated his fighter out of Dark Knight's hangar. He joined up along the right side of Sarn's X-wing, forming to help in the destruction of any eager Imperials.

Orthos gunship:

Slipping onto the tail of another X-wing the Ortho's continued it's path of destruction through the happless rebel ships. Although the imperial fighters were taking some losses, thanks to the gunship the rebels were suffering almost crippling looses.

As the Orthos quickly cut down another fighter a group of explosions lit up the area. Glancing out the canopy the gunner and pilot were pleased to see the first volley of torpedo's impact on the rebel facility. The facilites shields buckled under the tremendous force of the imperial firepower. But, even as the explosions abated from the first volley, the Theoi's bomber squadrons were already unleashing another deadly volley at the facility. Almost at the same time the Theoi and Interdictor closed the range on the rebel flag ship. Their weapons opened fire in unison as both ships targetted the Mon Calamari cruiser with their full fire power.

Black Knight Base:

Ariane was thrown through the command room door as the torpedo's impacted the station. Carefully she picked herself up off the floor and looked around. The control room was a small room with possibly only 10 operators and one senior officer, but everyone was busy as they tried to organise and co-ordinate the rebelion response to the new threat.

"Whats the situation Commander?" asked Ariane of the highest ranking officer she could find.

A little flustered the man replied "Not good. Sheilds are almost gone, we can't stand another torpedo volley like that one. At least Mon Mothma is safe.!"

"Not if that Interdictor gets it's gravity well powered she's not!" snapped Ariane pointing at the view screen.

The shrill beep from the x-wings alarms system. tore sarns gaze away from his scopes and on to the sensors. He quickly typed up a 3-d holo image on his map and was shocked to see a triangler shape bearing toward them. He swicthed on his Threat disply scope and allowed the computer to get a closer look at the approching form. Once his calibruted the device correctly he was able to identify the threat. Opun seeing the the new danger he let out a small disgrutled sigh.



" Aww crap." he muttered to himself, before he swicthed on his commlink.
" Nova 3, 1 here we have a problem. An Interdictor is closeing in on us at Delta-04-08. We can't allow that thing to power up it's gravity wells. I need you to cover me, while I try and knock out the generators with my torps. Copy ?"

time 1789 hours
Home One Bridge

The bridge of the infamous rebel Hq was bursting with activity as techs and rebel officers race to and fro to from their command stations. Indeed it was a chaotic scene. But to an old war hound like admrail ackbar, it was just another day at work. Even though he was worried about the incoming interdictor his comm officers spotted. He had already formed a stratigm to remove the threat.

" Comm officer I want you to hail the captian of the Revenge and tell him to come in along side that interdictor and unleash it's fighters one they pull in close enough. then blast that monstrosity with their cannons until nothings left." He ordered.

The comm officer immdedity went to work relaying the admrials command towards the reveges bridge, when she picked up another set of signals.

" Sir we've intercepted a transmission from Black Nova squadron !" she yelled.

" Put on audio Leuitent. he ordered."
" Aww crap." he muttered to himself, before he swicthed on his commlink.
" Nova 3, 1 here we have a problem. An Interdictor is closeing in on us at Delta-04-08. We can't allow that thing to power up it's gravity wells. I need you to cover me, while I try and knock out the generators with my torps. Copy ?"

Ackbar looked at his map next to him and noticed to spots flying towards the trian gler shape of the interdictor. He immdeditliy opend a channel to sarns figther and gave him some instructions.

" Commander sarn, this is admrial ackbar here."

" Yes admrail how may I be of service ?'

" I ordered the revenge to take care of the interdictor, my orignal plan was to let the neb-b take care of the interdictor ,but instead I need you and your wing man to distract that imperial ship before it can operate it's generators. While their distracted with you two. The Nebluon-B frigate can pull in along it's portside and unleash it's squadrons at it' Then finsih it off with laser cannons."

" How much time will it take for the revegene to get here ?" Sarn asked.

" At it's current spped and heading only about 8 minutes. Keep them busy till then commander and my the force be with you."

" You too admrial." Sarn said with a hint of pride in his voice. " okay Nova 3 I trust you heard what the admrial told us ? Let's give these imps something to shoot at."
"What the heck do you mean Trilogy ?!

Kheiron watched the battle from the bridge of the Theoi with eager intensity. The near constant tactical updates keep him up to speed with the technical side of things and his mind raced to produced tactics to maximise effect.
"Sir, the Magnitize has a few fighters heading it way" called the sensor stations operator,
"So typical of them, patch me through to the Orthos"
"Aye sir"
The comms crackled as contact was made,
"Orthos, protect the Magnitize, if it goes down the Cruiser gets away and if that happens, I'll be very disappointed in you"
"Aye sir"
The Captain stretched him arms and slowly looked around, as if admiring the decor. "Helm", he called over his shoulder, "Keep the Theoi over the Magnitize, if we get its generators up we've won this"

Kirin hopped into his x-wing which now was the only craft in the lonely hanger bay. Soon Mason woul dbe giving the injured Ami and future doctor Kagome to Home One in the Firespray. Kirin closed the canopy and began turning one systems. Then when he tried to turn on the engines they're was nothing. "Okay..............." he tried and failed a second time, " That can't be good. After several other failed attempts he opened the canopy and jumped out to check his craft. Seeing nothing wrong he got back in and tried it yet again, but this time nothing changed. With slight rage he stood up in the cockpit hoping to see someone enter the back of the hanger, and to his luck, there was a mechanic.

"YOU, mechanic, come here!" Kirin yelled.

The mechanic ran over frantically, "Yes sir!?"

"Stand right next to the fusolage." Kirin commanded.

The man did so, "Done sir, now what?"

"Kick the X-wing." Commanded Kirin with joy.

"Kick the x-wing?"

"Kick the x-wing, now." Kirin repeated.

The mechanic kicked the fighter and Kirin started the engines. "Now thats a way to start a ship." He said to himself, then he redirected at the mechanic, "Thank you, you may go now."

The mechanic noded and ran off. Kirin sat back down and closed the canopy. Slowly the fighter rose from the deck and as Kirin readyed to leave, a tie pulled a horrizontal strafe of the bay. All but one bolt went harmlessly around the bay inpacting unimportant thing, but one grazed Kirin's x-wing's bow.

"That's dirty pool!!" Kirin raged.

He punched it into full speed and shot after the tie, which shortly after died a very quick death at the mercy of Kirin's blasters.

He listened carefully to all the transmissions made from Home One to Sarn. Kirin didn't mind strange patterns but that was off. Kirin decided to change the rules a bit, "Gold Leader, this is Nova 2, James you out there?"

"We are here"

"Are you in the combat zone?"

"Yesssss, but asssssss far asssssss being in the melee, not yet, we jusssssssst broke off essssssscort formation from the Revenge."

"Can you form your squadron with me at my position with in a minute?" Kirin asked.

"We are on the other ssssside of Dark Knight."

"I copy, and I'm intercepting you now." Kirin reported.

"I sssee you, sssssso what do you have in mind Nova 2?"

"Listen and find out." Kirin bagan talking to all the gold squadron members, "This is Nova 2 to all Gold sqaudron, form up very loosly. You are not required to stay in fomration. We are going to go slam the interdictor's gravity wells with every torpedoe we've got. Or maybe we'll hit that flying gun you see in the distance. Either way it is very dangerous and for this to work, I need most of you alive. Break off formation if a tie is about to cause trouble. If it is not bothering us, don't bother it. When we fire the torpedoes break off and follow my next set of orders given at that time. Do you copy?"

Various gold squadron began to respond and then Kirin finished, " A and C flights form up with me. B flight form up about 100 meters above and 100 meters behind the last fighter in formation, D flight do the same except your below the last fighter. Report in as soon as you form up." Kirin continued to strategize in his head. A new attack block had formed behind him and fighter after fighter was reporting ready.

"Time till we intercept the interdictor?" Kirin asked Echo. The response went across his screen as two minutes for his formation, four minutes for the Revenge. Kirin commed the mass of fighters again, "By the way Gold Squadron, if I say break formation, A and C break, B and D will engage the obvious target with all weapons. A and C will reform and attack the target themselves." Kirin said a quick prayer.

"Nova 2 to Nova 1. I am on my way with a 'wee' bit of help. Stay alive." Kirin said into the comm link. The entire block of fighters approached fast. Most had switched shields to double front and had there torpedoes armed.

"Don't worry about your targeting computersssssssss, You will need to dodge turbo lassssssserssssss sssssssso you MUSSSST sssssssshoot from the hip." Gold leader told his combination of two squadrons. The enitire complement from the Revenge had formed up. Kirin knew he needed it to gurentee those gravity wells go down or give them a chance ageinst that orthos. Kirin well remembered what it did to Ami and his Firespray.


ooc: If anyone needs to see this little formation I have going, let me know and I"ll put up a picture. Yeah I learned how to do that.

"What the hell are they doing?" mumbled Kheiron to himself as he watched a group of Rebel ships line up in a weird formation "If they get close enough the Magnitize is scrap".
Flipping the comms switches he once more raised the crew of the Orthos,
"Orthos, some Rebels are about to make a run at the Magnitize, get behind them and take 'em out"
"Aye sir!"
The next call on his list was to the Magnitize itself,
"Magnitize, you are about to get hammered, fall back behind the Theoi and we'll sheild you, how long until the wells are up?"
"Two minutes and counting sir"
"Alright, keep on it"
The Interdictor dropped speed and allowed the Theoi to pull up alongside it, effectively blocking the Rebel ships from the Magnitize and vice versa. Hopefully this would be enough to deter them from attempting a torpedo run, at least long enough for the wells to get up and running.
Kheiron asked for an update and found the Home One was close to jumping out, which would make the Rebels retreat attempt a success. To make sure the Home One didn't get far the Captain put out a call to all Imperial ships within range.
"This is Captain Nyran Kheiron of the Imperial Class Two Star Destroyer Theoi. We have located the Home One, I repeat, we have located the Home One, it is about to jump along these vectors," the crew transmitted to hyperspace vectors along with the message, "Any ships within range are to track and engage the Home One and put an end to the Rebels flagship"
Within moments he recieved two replies.
"Theoi, this is Captain Kendral of the ISD - Ironside, heading to intercept Home One, ETA three hours"

Kirin was silent while they approached. He kept his eye on the object known as the Orthos, though he didn't know its name or what is actually is, he had come to the conclusion through his last encounter with it that it is a deadly craft that is extreamly effective ageinst fighters. God willing his strategy would pull the craft away from the Interdicter and allow Sarn and Winters to take down the gravity wells. Fortunately, the Orthos was closing on a paralell course and Sarn and Winters were almost with in firing range.

"Echo what is that peice of junks course?" Kirin asked.

A read out appeared giving a course based on its current direction. It read;

"UC Course is 45 mark 0. Enemy is traveling parralell in the opposite direction."

Kirin looked down and was disturbed. "Not going to try a frontal....either from on top or behind, maybe below if he's fast enough." Kirin mumbled.

"Nova 2 to Gold Group. Keep formation. B flight, keep your eyes open, possible hostile in bound, do not break unless I order you to. I repeat, DO NOT ENGAGE UNLESS I SAY." Kirin commanded.

"Come on Sarn, hit that thing...." Kirin mumbled.

The pilot checked the scanners as the instruction from the Theoi was complete. Indeed the scanner registered a force of rebel ships forming up behind the gunship.

"Time for some fun!" smiled the pilot as the gunner spun his postion 180 and started to pick of rebel fighters. As he did the pilot noticed that the fighters were breaking formation as soon as they were threatened. She clicked the com.

"Interceptor group Beta! Target the X-wing squadron behind us. They appear to be breaking at the slightest threat, the cowards. Break em up! If they flee do not pursue - take down as many as possible with your first shots!"

With that she snapped the throttle on the gunship to closed and hit full reverse thrust. The sudden decelleration pulled them both forward as the flight of x-wings shot past them and a few shots impacted the Orthos shield, along with one unfortunate rebel pilot. Quickly the gunship powered forward and her guns continued their punishment on the rebel ships.

Explosions littered around them as the Tie Interceptor squadron joined the duck shoot and rebel fighters feel like flies.

"A distraction you say?" Winters asked Sarn over the comlink after the plan had been explained. "How come I have a feeling this will turn out bad..."
Bullseye let out an optimistic beep. "Yeah, whatever you say, man." Winters mumbled in reply.
"Alright then, Commander, I got your wing for whatever crazy stunt you feel like pulling." Then David laughed. "Normally I'm the one leading these insane ideas."
He goosed the throttle, and made sure his engines, shields, and blasters had their energy evenly balanced.
"All systems are green, Nova 1, following your lead, over."
If you're going to do something, do it right. Or at least don't let the other side know you're cheating.

"Nova 2, this is Gold 7, Gold 8 has taken severe damage, enemy craft has opened fire."

"This is Nova 2, All flights break into three man passes, engage that gun craft in mass, flights B and C engage fighters after your first pass, lets show that imperial ship what happens when it attack a couple formed up squadrons." Kirin ordered as he came hard about.

B flight broke and was followed by three more waves of six fighters. As the ties began to enter the battle zone with Gold Squadron, the Orthose suddenly slowed down to reverse course. An extreamly unfortunate move on their own part as Flight B passed peppering them with blasters. The Orthose gunner picked one off but had to move fast. The ships were so well spaced it was hard to shoot one an get its wingman.

The blaster fire was more of ignored, but what was next couldn't be. Flights A and C followed seconds later with proton torpedoes. Unfortunetaly for the imperial craft dodging such weapons at full speed is easy, but when your nearly stopped and recieving fire at point blank it is basically impossible. The well aimed torpedoes began to impact the shields as the fighters began to break around the Orthose. The flashes were nearly blinding with the intensity of the explosions. D flight came in with torpedoes as well. B had already began taking down ties. The apparent turkey shoot had been a strategic trap that the Orthose walked into.

ooc: Wow, two flights of six firing at least one torpedoe each. And another flight following that and all of it at point blank on a nearly not moving target. Thats at least 18 fired torpedoes on their initial run. That'll hurt anything. Hey Sarn, I hope you've schemed a way to take those gravity wells down. Well wait, of course you have, Home One has to get away right 8)

"All systems are green, Nova 1, following your lead, over."

" Just the words I was hoping to hear Nova 2. " sarn said jokingly. " Okay Kirin and the rest of Gold group manged to keep Both the Imperial Ties and that Gunship off our backs for awhile. So it's up to us to keep that interdictor busy unitl the Revenge Pulls in along side it."

He pauses momentaryily to check his radar and conducts a quick sensor scan of the Interdictors systems. In a matter of 10 seconds his droid calculates and process the data on his Threat disply screen.

Type: Interdictor
Alinement: Imperial
Manufactuer: Sienar Fleet Systems
Size: 600 meters
Weapons: 20 quad turbolaser battires
Defences: Kinstar 30.60 Deflector sheild
Speicalty: Can produce Gravity wells with special generators.


Sarn face twists into one of confusion. 'How is this supose to help ?' At first he doesn't find anything of interest or use, but after he re-checks the data again and suddenly found something he overlooked. allows his eyes to stop just above the defences catogrey. His look then changes to one of excitement. " Of course !" he shouts " Why didn't I think of it before ? !" he hurridly re-actives his commlink and summons david to pick up.

" Yeah Nova 1 ?"

" Nova 2 I need you to fly out of it's sensor range for the next 3 minutes. I'm going to swoop in low and distract them while you come in from the rear and take out their sheild system. Their ship is armed with a Kinstar 30.60 system. Those were notorius for having a small weak spot in the rear of the device. It's a small opening caused by massive power drainage due to the gravity wells being put to use. If you can knock that thing out of commission then I bet it will make taking out that monster a hell of alot easier for us ! "

Aboard the HOME ONE

Bridge


" It seems that both Black Nova and Gold Squadron has everything under control admrial. " Mon mothma told Ackbar. " Now the only real threat is the star destroyer In front of or exit vector."

The Mon-cal turned his blubous eyes in the direction of said Star destroyer and sighs heavily while nodding. " I was hoping we had some time before the imps could bring in a task force, But it seems I had overestimated the enemy's fire power." he pauses for a moment to catch his breath before continueing. Conserned by this sudden action mon mothma qurried him about his health.

" Admrial are you alright? I'll summon the med officer right away if you need anything."

Ackbar just waved her suggestion away and looked at her with a small smile on his face. " That won't be necessary Madam. I just need a little rest that's all. Epsically for what I'm about to do next."

He switchs the ships intercom on and delivers his message to all decks.

" Attension All Gunners and Star Fighter Pilots, i'm ordering you to Man your stations and get your fighters ready for launch. In order for us to escape we need to take out the star destroyer ahead of us. I want sheild power at maxium and all Turbolaser battires to be ready for battle. All wings must launch to defend this ship. We may not survive this little skirmish men...But atleast we'll take some of them downwith us !"

A Loud Cheer was heard ringing through out the ship. many aboard had even claped at their commanders speech. But soon dropped their jovial addituddes to man their stations. Mon mothma just looks at the admrial with a proud glance before taking her leave. Once she had left the brdige The mon-cal officer once again turned his attension towards the task at hand. " And May I add gentlemen...May The Force Be With US."

"TORPEDOS!" screamed the Orthos gunner as the Rebels rallied and targetted the gunship.

"Nice move!" smirked the pilot as she snapped open the throttle "Shoot them down!"

Viciously she pulled the gunship into a power dive and then around in a wide circle to charge head long at the rebel ships. The Orthos gunner meanwhile happily picked off the pursuing torpedos while the pilot danced the war machine around the path of both any remaining pursuers and also the attacking fighters. The forward chin mounted weapons were brought to bear on a number of fighters as the Orthos charged head long into the melee of rebel ships blasting furiously as it went.

Taken by surprise by the agressive stance of a ship that they should have had dead to rights the rebel attack faltered somewhat.

In the cockpit of the Orthos the pilot closed her eyes and concentrated, her mind reached out and touched another, almost concealed but aware of all that was happening.

"I am here!" came the almost inaudiable reply "Relax and let your feelings guide you!"

Almost without thinking the Orthos snapped right avoiding a number of incoming rebel blasts.

Bridge of the Theoi:

On the bridge of the Theoi the tactical officer could not believe the readings in front of him. He checked his sensors again to confirm it was not a misscalculation but the readings were correct.

"Sir?" he called

"Yes what is it?" replied Captain Kheiron as he strode to the young mans side

"The Orthos sir it's.......it's...... not possible!" the man stammered

"What is it man?" demanded captain Kheiron

"Their performance has increased almost 200% in the last few minutes sir! The pilot is pulling off maneuveurs in that ship that should not be possible in a fighter and as for the gunner, he's picking off torpedos like they were static targets. Whats going on sir?"

"The crew of the Orthos are the finest in the fleet!" snapped Nyran as he looked out the window. A smile formed on his face as he watched the colorful dance that indicated the Orthos location in the battle.

"So you are here!" he thought to himself.

Quickly the gunship powered forward and her guns continued their punishment on the rebel ships
OOC: Just to clarify, in GoneSolos post the only ships behind the Orthos were a few X-Wings and the sudden brake made them over shoot and appear in front of the Orthos. Immediately after that it 'powered forward'. I dont think thats enough time to get 18 fighters on its tail.

Also, I was going to have the other ISDs chase down the Home One after it had exited, hence the three hour ETA. The only ISD in the battle is the ISDII Theoi which is between Gold squad and the Magnitize. The Home One is a little further ahead, currently out of range, which is why the magnitize needs the gravity wells.

One more point, I thought the Home Ones starfighters would of launched already, to help with the reatreat, rather then sit on board and wait. If they are still on board the six squadrons of the Theoi, plus the Theoi and Magnitize themselves, should of already overpowered the fighters from the base, statistically speaking.

Oh and one more thing, if you leave sensor range for the next three minutes the gravity well projectors will be up when you get back. So far the battles continued for more the long enough to do so. One fighter isn't going to distract all weapon emplacements on the Interdictor, the Theoi is in range to fire on all craft near the Interdictor and it is 598m long.

Ok, I think thats it, sorry to interrupt, lets move on...

Winters smiled to himself as Sarn explained his strategy. He hit the comlink and said quickly, "Roger that, Nova Leader, time to rattle the cage."
He broke away from the Commander's X-wing and veered towards the starboard side of theInterdictor, trying to maneuver around to its stern. He watched his threat indicator paint a yellow and red area around his X-wing, while a computer-generated voice warned him of immediate sensor detection. Bullseye chimed in with some colorful comments of his own.
"I know, buddy, don't worry."
He pulled the throttle back, and sent power to his engines, placing himself a few hundred kilometers out of the Interdictor's sensor range. The wedge-shaped craft loomed in the distance, as Winters slowly worked his way towards the rear.
"Nova Leader, this is Nova 3, I'll be in position in roughly one minute and twenty seconds," the Captain said reading information straight from his computer monitor.
"I hope you know what you're doing..." he muttered to himself, thinking about the immediate danger that Sarn was about to put himself in. 20 batteries of quad laser cannons was no small obstacle.
Winters was about to say something when he remember his Corellian roots and smiled. He's a Corellian too. What good do we have for odds? As if reading his mind, Bullseye let out a long mournful whistle.
If you're going to do something, do it right. Or at least don't let the other side know you're cheating.

OOC: Ok I HAVE to say something here. There is no way if you are out of range of an interdictor cruisers sensors that you are only 1 minute away from anything. I mean come on. X-wings (and Tie's for that matter) have sensors that can detect objects up to 50KMS away (based on the games) and even then travelling at full speed (all power to engines) over a distance of 20K will take you a few minutes.

Basically if you are out of sensor range of any type of major cruiser (rebel or imperial) then you are in another system, Not 1 minute away, now if you want to microjump out of the system and then back in fine but as soon as you are back in the system ALL cruisers in the system will see you.

One fighter isn't going to distract all weapon emplacements on the Interdictor, the Theoi is in range to fire on all craft near the Interdictor and it is 598m long.

Ok, I think thats it, sorry to interrupt, lets move on...

Number 1. I wanted your ship to be In the Home One's way because I figured that it would make a HEll more since of your ship caused some damge to the reb flagship in order to give the other star destroyers a more easier time disabling it. Or you could allow it to escape and track it's jump,Then send it' trajectory over to an awaiting armada of star destoyers. Cause likly the home one is heading to the rest to the rebel fleet. and the Empire would most likly want to get the entire rebel alliance at once. Hell it's part of the reason they built the death star. Another thing the Home One has about Ten squadrons aboard it' hanger bays The others that launched were just 3 squadrons. The other 7 is on board in a type of reserve until called for. remeber there trying to escape and only lanched 3 squadrons to assit the evacation of the base ( Note Dark night is really just a small outpost and repair facuilty for their ships.) But it launchs it's other squadrons in order to overwhelm the Theoi and maybe get them to retreat.

Of course you could type in that during that little battle you place a trascking system on their ship or have your crew men track the exact movements of the rebel flagship in order to find out where they are going.

And seeing how the gravity wells are already up it's impossible for a ship like the home one to escape the system. So I wanted the battle to make more since with the home one also trying to fight it's way out. I mean honestly what Imperial would allow the rebel moble Hq to slip from his fingers ? espically if capturing or destroying said ship would grant him a reward from the Emporer himself.

Number 2. Okay the thing with the sensors is a bit screwy But I thought that since SO much energy has to go into powering and maintaining the gravity wells should be enough to atleast weaken some systems. And as for david staying out of sensor range...Heck almost every advace sensor or radar has at least some blind spots to them. In this case david is flying away in the sensors shadow. As for the Theoi being that close to the interdictor. David is flying far outside the ships Visaul Range not there sensors. They know he's there but can't see him as of yet.

number 3. As for my little tactic the Interdictor might be heavliy armored but It would still need to defend it self from a rebel attack force. even one x-wing equipt with photon torpedos. Besides I'm doing my best to keep them busy until the real fire power arrives. My mission is to distract them by making a pest of myself for as long as I can. Not to take out an entire imp ship alone. And with or attack run on the interdictor the other ties will probubly be called back to defend it, Making it easier for damaged rebel fighters to retreat back to their flag ship. I figured that seniro would make more since.

Ok Agreed but the gravity well generators are not powered yet. Anyway enough arguing back to the story.

Location: Black Knight base.

Another explosion rocked Black Knight base as the crew continued to try and co-ordinate the sector defense and the evacuation of the remaining crews from the base. Ariane stood watching for a few moments more and then activated her lightsaber.

"I'm sorry sir there are no weapons allowed on the command deck" started a lone security guard as the single blade hissed to life.

"Oh I'm so sorry I didn't rea.....!" started Ariane before she ran the glowing Red blade through the happless rebels chest. His dying scream died in his throat. Even before his lifeless body had fallen to the ground she lept forward and had cut down another two officers as panic gripped the control room. Blaster fire echoed through the room, punctuated by the sound of a lightsaber and the death cries of numerous rebel officers.

A few minutes later she stood amist a pile of dead bodies. Around her the constant chatter from rebel pilots requesting updates from the control room broke the erie silence. Reaching in to her small pack she removed a number of small detonators and attached them around the control room. Then stowing her saber on the side of her backpack she quickly exited the control room and hurriedly made her way to the hanger.

As she arrived on the hanger deck a shuttle was finishing loading up supplies and staff for the evacuation. Sprinting the final distance to the shuttle she called out

"Room for one more?"

One of the flight officers recognised her from her landing in the hanger earlier and held the shuttle. As the shuttle powered away from the platform the control room was engulfed in a massive blast as Dark Knight base went silent. On board the shuttle Ariane clutched her weapon and allowed herself a smile.

OOC: First off, I get to decide where my ships are. The Home One wouldn't jump back to the fleet until its certain its not being followed and despite having an ISDII and Interdictor in the area I dont think thats enough of a force to seriously consider taking on the Home One as well. Best to tell someone where its going and have them deal with it. Besides, I'm not big on altering the cannon SW storyline by blowing chunks out of the Rebellions flagship.
Secondly, the Interdictor was made specifically for trapping ships in real space, there is no reason for it to have insufficient power to do so, while still maintaining sheilds. There is no blind spot on Imperial ships unless you are actually attached, rendering your ship as part of the Imperial ship on sensors. The sensor range of Interdictors and ISDII is rated in systems, and a sneak attack from another system away isn't a good tactic. Jumping in kinda reveals yourself.
And lastly, it took rogue squadron a full volley of torps to take down the Black Asps, an Interdictors, sheilds. Only three or so torps hit the hull. One X-Wing is like a fly, while somewhat annoying, its harmless. The real firepower you refer to is a Neb B isn't it?. With the Theoi is range to cover the Magnitize thats suicide. My advice is to get the Home One out of danger and then leave with it. You base has already been destroyed so there is no reason to stay. I will not power up the Magnitize's gravity wells until the Home One has left.

ooc: I have a few things to say. First, my moneuver was well thought out and planned, if you dought its realism then I will create a few images showing the formation and attack pattern described above. Next, time to bug out. Its already given that homeone will make it, but there has to be a fight for it, we already lost one ship, I think. But if I am not mistaken, I seem to remember Dark Knight being a MON CAL :raisedbrow: . If I remember that correctly, that means that the only way that ship is destroyed is if all imperial fire was focused on it, and even with that, first, the neb-b is assigned as an escort craft, which means its close enough to the thing to give it some cover, second, she is right next to Home One, more fire and its another Mon Cal. I may just have a bad memory, but I'm sure Dark Knight is a Mon Cal. In any case, even though my little moneuver seemed to have done little or nothing, it sure kept you on your toes :P !

OOC: Okay Nyran Kheiron now hear this your last post...

"First off, I get to decide where my ships are. The Home One wouldn't jump back to the fleet until its certain its not being followed and despite having an ISDII and Interdictor in the area I dont think thats enough of a force to seriously consider taking on the Home One as well. Best to tell someone where its going and have them deal with it. Besides, I'm not big on altering the cannon SW storyline by blowing chunks out of the Rebellions flagship."

Okay far enough but the Home One IS near the base...I Though I made it clear that the home one was still near the base during the assualt. It had to stay close until all the evacuation shuttles were safely on board. When I made that last post The evacuation was already over but I thought your ship was already blocking the Home One. In reality it still can't leave because of the battle right in front of it. So to fix this little problem I will make another post were mon mothma tells ackbar to change his plans. Since both Her and ackbar not to mention everyone in the rebellion want to risk putting the home one in danger. so there going to try and rush past the imps and then jump into hyperspace. After the other rebels with draw with them. Just so you know Nyran...

Rebel task force at DarkNight Base...

Home One-mon cal cruiser
Revenge-Neb-B
Two Corellian corvettes

Now about your other comment...

" Secondly, the Interdictor was made specifically for trapping ships in real space, there is no reason for it to have insufficient power to do so, while still maintaining sheilds. There is no blind spot on Imperial ships unless you are actually attached, rendering your ship as part of the Imperial ship on sensors. The sensor range of Interdictors and ISDII is rated in systems, and a sneak attack from another system away isn't a good tactic. Jumping in kinda reveals yourself."

Okay so this is were I goofed up okay lay off !

I thought Imperails ships sensors only scaned a certain area. Now on to my problem. Again I'll fix this. I stated eariler that david was out of VISUAL range and thus they can't see him as off yet. But they do know he there on there radars and tracking systems. If I forgot to mention this then sorry.

and last but not least.

" And lastly, it took rogue squadron a full volley of torps to take down the Black Asps, an Interdictors, sheilds. Only three or so torps hit the hull. One X-Wing is like a fly, while somewhat annoying, its harmless. The real firepower you refer to is a Neb B isn't it?. With the Theoi is range to cover the Magnitize thats suicide.

Don't you think I know this. Sarn and David aren't trying to destroy the interdictor by themselves. There just trying to do their best in distracting it until more fire power (the neb-b) arrives. I did state the the NEB-B would be there in tow minuates right. So they could hold out for atleast that long then pull out. They are only decoys after all. it may not bother or harm the interdictor but having two rebels flying over your ship does make any imp just itch to shoot them down. That's what sarn is counting on...But I could change it to where mon mothma decided to call off the attack and have all rebel ships jump into hyperspeed seeing as how the gravity wells aren't on. But let's discuss this in the black nova ooc forum I so hate to ruin our thread with this oooc meassge. If yyou hate or like the changes then let me know or give me a few ideas to help this thread make more sense and keep it's conitiuny with the films.

ooc: Okay y'all, lets not go telling each other our strategies. Its half my fun figuring out whats going on and adapting to it, hence my last little stunt, which do to force sensitive imps :lightsaber: , failed :cry: . Oh well, here we go again... And btw, its bad when we have to scroll down six posts to find the last IC on this our IC thread. Now I'm guilty too, but lets try to keep all the discussions and arguing inside the ooc thread.

ic: "Gold leader to Nova 2, itssssss picking off torpedoesssssssss like they were sssssssstanding sssssssstill, maybe five max got through from flightssssss a,c, and d. Flight b hassssss total sssssuccessssssss only due to ssssurprissssse. I'd ssssssay their sshieldssss went down at leasssst 70 % but I can't tell for certain."

"Gold 21 to Nov...."
"Gold 21 is down, this is gold 22 now in lead of flight d, we've lost four craft."

"Nova 2 to flight D, with draw to the cover of the Reven.........scratch that, she's here. Flight d, concentrate on the fighters, all remaining flights use torpedoes if you are an odd number fighter and blasters if your even."

"Revenge to Nova 2, looks like you need a little cover fire. Well, here we are."

"Revenge, concentrate fire on the unidentified craft, pepper it untill it with draws, don't change course though," he changed direction of his orders," Gold group stay with the neb-b, if you don't you'll be picked off." Kirin thought hard as he fought, he could feel the force being used in close proximity. Yet he could do little in space combat with it, but he knew one pilot who could, Ami , but in her condition, combat was out of the question.

The Revenge slipped into the middle of all the fighters like it were a simulation. Everything was running smoothly. All her weapons locked onto the Orthose and began to cause shield damage. At the same time the fighters from Dark Knight Base itself had been relieved from protecting Home one and were now entering the fighter battle around the Revenge

"Gold leader to Nova 2, 7 fightersssss from gold down. ETA to Interdictor, 1.5 minutssss."

"Understood, those corvettes will be joining this ball of fighters and ship any second now, we shouldn't have much to worry about besides that darn gun craft." Kirin responded in a hurry and he made a torpedoe pass at the Orthose.

ooc: Sorry about any confusion I've caused, and I've been gone last weekend for trip to Atlanta. I don't think I really missed much, what with all the OOC arguments going on. As I said, if I caused any of it, sorry.

ic: Winters winced again as another wave from the sensor sweep coming from the Interdictor washed over his craft.
This isn't going to work...
He activated the comlink in his helmet: "Nova Lead, this isn't going to accomplish anything. Unless you have another idea, I'm going to tag me some TIEs and then bug out with the Home One."
He began banking slightly towards the dogfight in space around the Dark Knight Base, but waited to hear Commander Sarn's reply.
If you're going to do something, do it right. Or at least don't let the other side know you're cheating.

The Orthos shook violently as a torpedo exploded a little too close for the pilots liking.

"That was a bit close!" snapped the ships gunner as he snapped off another volley at a fleeting rebel fighter. "We're to open out here!"

Suddenly the com line cracked to life as two rebel X-wings exploded each side of the powerful ship.

"Orthos this is Ranger squad, sorry we got delayed but we thought we'd offer some assitance!"

Flicking the com the pilot opened a line to the attacking squad of Tie's that were joining the fray.

"Welcome to the party rangersquad! Whats the situation?"

"Magnetize is lauching her fighters now and the Theoi is launching the rest of her fighters also, those rebels don't seem to like you! How you holding up?"

A quick check of system status and she responded "Not bad, these rebels couldn't hit a Rancor at close range anyway!"

A heavy laugh echoed through the com as the Tie's quickly formed up on the Orthos and started to cut there way through the rebel forces, for it's size the Orthos danced merily through the incoming fire from the rebel fighters and answered with a heavy coverage of her own.

Glancing out the port viewport as the Gunship cork-screwed through the explosion of yet another hapless rebel the pilot notice the approach of a Nebulan B frigate.

"That's heading for the Magnetize!" She snapped to the gunner "Ranger and Strike Fighters form on the Orthos priority target the Neb B!" she barked

As she spoke a large explosion filled the darkness as the third volley of torpedos from the Tie Bombers blew up the station and a hurray filled her headset.

"Well done Bombers!! You're next target is the approaching Nebulan B!"

With that she deftly danced the Orthos through a barrage of fire and made course for the approaching Nebulan B as the remanats of two sqaudrons of Tie fighters coverd the massive gunships charge!

Kirin watched his scopes, Gold was now all around the Revenge, along her flanks at close formation were the two corvettes. Explosions peppered around almost randomly as the Orthose slipped out and began a run of her own with ties. Unfortunately for her, the craft of the Dark Knight base were arriving, multiple squadrons in formation beginning to ready a counter on the approaching fighters. Kirin let a grin slip. Some how, he had managed to negotiate his fighters around the ships headed for the interdicter to create a powerful spearhead. A fighter attack and a neb-b isn't smart, but an attack on a neb-b, two corvettes, more three squadrons of x-wings, and probably more on the way from Home One; it certainly would be a bloody attack.

The tie bombers moved away from where Dark Knight had been. The combined power of the weapons of Dark Knight and Home One added to the fighters buzzing around them had done some work to bombers. Home One's fighters had began to chase them and pick bombers off from behind. Home One prepared to jump into hyperspace.

"Green Leader to Nova Two, we're here."

"Good, pull up and start taking the ties out. Avoid being around the fireship or what ever it is."

"Copy Nova 2."

"Blue Leader, Nova 2. We are tailing some irratating bombers which shouldn't take too long to reach your position."

"Well, take'm out"

"Already on it."

"Nova 2 to Nova 1, having fun? You really should join the party over here, its a real battle royal."

Kirin paused then started again, "Echo, you know all those fancy moneuvers I came up with, get ready to pull them. Whats the ETA?"

It beeped and the screen read 48 seconds.

"We're going to make it there, but how long then." Kirin mumbled.

"Gold 18 to Leader, fighters inbound, 225 mark 31."

"Copy that."

The imperail ships broke into the mass of fighters. Gold broke at them and Green engaged. What of the imperial fighters were torn up by numbers, the reinforcing ties were in greater number and power, but Kirin's target remained the Orthose. The Revenge began to pick off fighters, it was so far like swatting flies. Blue was not far off, thirty seconds at most. They still continued to beat down the bombers.

"Gold Leader to Nova 2, we've got ssssome company, new fightersssss inbound, twenty ssssecondsssss. Itssssss a whole lot more."

"Very well, Nova 2 to Nova 1, do you think you can do a little something about those fighters from the interdicter

ooc: I just did a little research, and this is what is on the battle field as we speak:

Imperials have 1 ISD II, 1 Interdictor, 1 Orthose (*arrrg!!*), and a total of 2 bomber squadrons (which are not only torn by two x-wing squadrons from Dark Knight and dark knights weapons, but weapons of the very near Home One and her several x-wing squadrons), 6 tie squadrons and 4 intercepter squadrons. A total of 12 squadrons. All pretty pounded so far.

The rebel have 1 Mon Cal, 2 C. Corvettes, and 1 Neb-B. Added to that ball of fire they have a grand total of 10 x-wing squadrons, plus three advanced pilots of Black Nova.

Now from what I have seen, the imperials are in a fix here. There bomber squadrons, and who was to defend them, are getting the crap kicked out them by a little over a wings worth from the Mon Cal alone. Now these fighters are joining the spear head. So the fighter numbers are pretty evened out. But then the performance of the X-wing is far superior to the tie, and they are running on them while they are balled up around a nebulon-B which is designed to repel fighter assaults. Next, the Mon cal is designed to take on and be able to defeat an ISD is starship combat. With the added fire of the Neb and corvettes, forgetting fighters here, the ISD II is no match, let alone the less armed interdictor floating off somewhere. I have looked over this all day strategically with ship stats in front of me. So to be quite breif, the rebels are NOT out gunned, it is quite the opposite. Just letting the lot of you know the actual situation.

ooc: sorry for all the ooc post eariler. I should have stated some things from the start that would have made a lot of sense in my last ic post to avoid the confusion.

IC: " I hear that Nova 3, we compeleted our task any way. the revegenes is already pulling in behind us. Let's help Green and Blue squadrons pick off some of these Ties then get out of here. " he shouted in to the comm.

Pulling back sharply on the control stick, he steered his fighter out of the incoming Tie fighters path and towards the welcomeing site of the revenges bow. Several turbo-laser blasts shot out from the revenges top turrets and picked off the fighters following sarn. It then pulled in closly to the Interdictor's port side and started to hammer it with heavy turbo laser fire. Green and red flashs fired from both ships and turned their little section of space into blasing war zone. Sarn watched this little fray with intrest,almost losing himself to it until his droid had directed his attension back into realtime.

" Veep,Bleep,Voop !" Cried sarns droid

" Huh ?! Kodachi what's wrong ?" he asked

The droid explaned it' situation to him and printed up it's translatrion on his screen. sarn read the message and with a frown. " OH Sith Spit ! " he cursed " Tie Bombers ! ". " Kodachi transfer all remaing power into weapons and engines systems and hang one. "

He pulls the ship into a tight loop and accends upward toward the colum formation of tie bombers baring down on the revenges port side. As soon as he is close enough to aquire a lock, he fires his first torpedo at the closest tie bomber in the formation. The warhead sail through space and hit the unsuspecting Tie. The resulting attack scatted the rest of them giving sarn a good oppertunity to pick off the remaing straglers. " Okay now to finsih off these guys and get out of here alive."

He pulls in behind antoher one and switches his weapons to laser cannons. He then links two of his guns together and waits for the targeting box to confirm a lock. Though his current target is proving to be a more difficult target then his first one. Sarn carfully follows him and sticks close to him ,detrumand not to lose his lock on him. " Come on , come on." he chants to the computer in hopes it would give him a faster targeting solution. Then finally it beeps giving sarn the joyful veiw of his current prey in a green lock crosshair. Wasting no time he fires his cannons into the bombers rear engine and watches as it expolsied into a lovly fireball.

" Two down and more to go."

OOC: Kirin, your right, which is why I never planned on sticking the Theoi in the Home Ones road. From left to right I think it should be Theoi - Magnitize - Neb B and escorts - Now destroyed base - Home One, which is going to jump in the direction away from the Imperials entry vector. This is really the only way to make the thread make sense. The Imperial fighter squadrons and the Magnetize are fair game and destroyable so go rank on them within reason. Since the base is destroyed all I request is the safe exit of the Orthos and Theoi. If you want to make it more interesting and more of a typical SW battle I could introduce another ISD and a few Lancer Frigates?. BTW, whats the link to the BN OOC thread?

OOC: Black Nova OOC Page 5

The Orthos rocked as an escorting Tie fighter was torn appart by the turbo laser batteries on the Nebulan B frigate. The imperial com line was a live with combat chatter from pilots caught up in complete furballs dotted around the combat area. For their parts the Theoi and Magnetize were targeting the rebel ships will all available firepower but the rebel ships had both, formidable, imperial warships out gunned.

The pilot flicked open a com line to the Theoi, "Captain this is the Orthos! We are outgunned and out numbered and are starting to take heavy losses!"


"Understood!" replied Captain Kheiron over the com, "I think we've given these rebels a sizeable bloody nose today anyway, we've already cost them a repair facility and inflicted some damage on one of their main warships. As I speak more ships are enroute to our position!"

He paused for a moment as he called out some orders to the crew of the Theoi and then returned to the com line "Pilot I'm sounding a fleet withdraw, return to the Theoi. We'll withdraw to a better position and then join up with the approaching task force. Those rebels won't get far!"

"Aye Sir!" snapped the pilot as she noticed the general return order being broadcast to all imperial fighters. The Theoi and Magnetize were already starting their turns and the pilot knew that as soon as they were in place they would jump

"Orthos to all fighters get back on board the command ships NOW!"

With that she swung the Orthos into position to protect the flank of the returning bombers. The Orthos had it's own hyperdrive some of the smaller fighters did not, and she was determined they would make it back to their hangers before the parent ships left the system.
