Ulic docked his freighter with Karn's frigate under heavy fire. Before the freighter had powered down Karn was running for the door, and out of the ship. It took Karn less than a minute to reach the bridge.
"Sit Rep people!" Karn called out.
"Major, we are preparing to make the jump to hyperspace."
"Good, where to?"
Before Kre'nel could answer him, the stars in the forwards view port streaked into white lines before a burst of blue threw them into a spiriling tunnel of light. Infront of Karn, his console told him his destination - the Kalroon space station above Sump, well known for its pirate activities.
"Why me? Kre'nel, get Ulic to the bridge now!"

Ulic ended up on the bridge being shoved in by two troopers. "What's the big idea, shoving me in here? I got work to do on my ship!"

The bridge door opened as two of Karn's guards pushed Ulic in, I'll have to talk to them about that.

"Sorry about the inconveniance Ulic, but we've got a big problem. We're about to drop out at a well known Pirate's Space Station near the planet of Sump.
"I'm hoping that you've got some contacts, or some knolledge that's going to save us from being jumped by Pirates and those pair of ISDs that are trailing us."

Before Ulic could respond, a small alarm sounded on the bridge - 30 seconds until the ship dropped out of hyperspace. . .

"Oh great, I seem to work better under extreme pressure." He groaned. "Ok, I need to know a few things. What's our shield status, how fast can this thing scramble back into lightspeed and how long is it gonna take for those Star Destroyers to emerge behind us?"

"Our shields are full after recharging after the engagment with the TIEs. We can hold off against fighters, small craft though anything the size of a frigate or larger and things get problomatic. Bombers and their payload are problems as well.
"This frigate was designed to hold off fighters from larger warships. It's been modified to have faster recharging shields, able to to keep up with any stock Corvette and some small craft as well as adding four warhead launchers - two fore, two aft.
"The hyperdrive will be ready for another jump in roughly a minute, though we need to travel to the nav point first. That will make us vanurable for around 10 minutes.
"And as for those ISDs, we can estimate that if the chose to follow us, that i would take them a minimum of two minutes for minimum safe jump range. So, we're guessing between 2 and 8 minutes."
Rantar paused to swollow.
"In other words, we're far from out of the woods yet. And, I havn't seen Afton since jumping in the turret of your ship. I'm getting my personel to bring her up here, she seems to have a knack for getting out of tight spots."

Ulic sighed and put his hands on his head. "If this was a smaller ship, I could get out of this, but with a ship this size and given the amount of time we have." he sighed again. "We're done, I've got nothing, maybe we could...I don't know broadcast that we're an Imperial ship or something and then make the jump and set up a hot zone for the Destoryer."

I sent her a message a while back, a week I think, and no reply yet :(

Maybe we should wait a week or so? Most Uni's and TAFEs have just started up this week, otherwise we can just finish up

OOC: Here we go, the beginning of the end . . .

IC: Before Karn could send his gaurds off to find Afton, warning klaxons blared throughout the ship.
"Inbound ships! Multiple contacts dropping out of hyperspace behind us,"the sensor tech yelled in paniced voice. "Confirming targets . . . 2 ISD Mk IIs, no support vessels though they're beginning to deploy fighters."

"Well, so much for our plans. At least the locals havn't picked us up yet." As always, Karn spoke too soon as two comm channels came to life on the ships bridge.
"This is Captian Nizer of the Imperial Star Destroyer Impervious, powerdown your vessel and you shall be spared."
"What fool dare challenges the power of the Chasnier Pirates? You wont live to regret this."

Karn rolled his eyes, as he spoke. "Oh great, so now we not only have those Imps baring down on us, though we've managed too tick off the local pirates as well. What next? We manage to find the mythical Katarna fleet as well!" Quickly moving to the centre of the bridge, Karn began to order his crew to respond to the threats.

"Shields up, engine's full foward. I want to get as much distance between us and those Destroyers, those we can out run - the fighters is another story."
The orders carried across the bridge, and the ship lurched forwards in space. Karn continued to watch the sensor board, as more and more contacts began to light up both in front and behind them. From the current speed, the Imperial fighters would be on them in less than a minute, though the pirate fighters and Corvettes would take significantlly longer. Good, at least we will only need to focus on the Imperials for now.

Karn's focus was brought back to the Imperial side of the sensor screen as an entire wing of Imperial fighters closed into firing range.
"Helm, break to starboard and bring all guns unline - give them a broadside to breakup the fighter screen and then we'll pick the remainders apart."
Silence was the only reply that Karn got as the ship began to bank. The high manouvrablity of the frigate allowed it to bring it's starboard guns to bare before the fighters had a chance to open fire with an effective salvo. Batteries of lasers and turbolasers opened fire at the incoming Imperial fighters. The high powered energy bolts tore apart the weakly armoured fighters before the had a chance to avoid the incoming fire, though that would be the last time that tactic would work effectively. Now the fighters began to break formation, keeping with a wingmate, while attempting to open fire on the frigate. In smaller groups, the highly manouvrable TIEs were nearly impossible for his gunners to hit unless they came in at a constant vector.
While the TIE Fighters were only armed with blasters designed to fight other fighters, there were more than enough of them to inflict heavy damage on the frigate's shields if they had the chance to open fire for long enough. Karn wouldn't allow it.
"Helm, begin manouvres, start shacking those TIEs up. Set all guns to fire at will, supression fire - we're not interested in kills. And prep the rear warhead launchers with mines, that should keep the TIEs away from our engines at least."
As the 200 metre long frigate began to manouvre, the sensor officer called out again. "Sir, new contacts from the ISDs. Sensors are painting them as an equal mix of fighters and bombers."
"Crap," was the only responce that Karn gave.
"Ah, sir, that's not all - there's an advanced fighter screen coming from the Pirate position. Approximately 2 squadrons worth of fighters, warbook designates them a mixture of Z-95s, Starchasers and an unknonw - most likely an ugly."
Sweat rolled down Karn's face, and the headache he'd picked up earlier in the day came back. Is that all you've got?
"Continue manouvres and course heading. Concentrate on the Imperial fighters, if we're lucky the pirate's will take the opputunity up to tackle the Imps first while they're at the disadvantage. Oh, and activate our Rebel transponder, it might aid them in picking us as nuetral."

Karn guessed right about not engaging the pirates first. In their first pass, they didn't break formation while plwing through any fighters that got in their way. The second wave didn't work out to well for them though, the devided their forces up and sent half on an attack run on the Wreckless Wonderer and the rest to deal with the fighters. Though now the Imperials were more than ready, they broke off a squadron of fighters to deal with the pirate threat. In a single pass, the pirate advanced fighters were cut in half, and never got a chance to engage Karn's frigate. Now the TIEs were breaking off and to engage the prirates.
"Good, some breathing space. Shields, angle the deflector shields towards the Bombers when the fire. Weapons primary targets are now set to warheads and fighters are now secondary, and start to deploy those mines and prep the forward launchers with high yield warheads. After the bombers make their first pass, we'll launch some missiles up their flank.
"Sensors, give me an update."
"Sir, the ISDs aren't chasing us, there vector has them lined up for the planet. All Imperial fighters are headed for us, as well as a small flotilla of Pirate vessels. The majority of the pirate units are staying at the planet to defend against the pirates - they wont last long. Other than that . . . wait, long range sensors just picked up fighters . . . two squadrons jsut dropped out of hyperspace. They're hailing us sir!"
Karn looked at the sensor officer with a confused face.
"Ah . . . k"
"Wreckless Wonderer, this is Leutenant Reece of the Rebel Alliace, looks like you guys could use a hand."
"Thank the force . . . any help would be appreciated, just get us to that jump zone!"
"Will do."
Karn quickly swung around to Ulic, "Looks like we've got a fighting chance now - wanna take the Nova Dream out and give those Rebel fighters a hand?"
Karn waited for Ulic's responce as the Rebel X-Wings and Y-Wings plotted an intercept course on the Imperial bombers.

"Doesn't look like I've got much of a choice. Ill get out there as soon as I can." He turned and headed down to the hanger, hopefully the ship would hold together long enough to get out of this.
