"INCOMING CONTACTS, HIGH NUMBER OF ENEMY FIGHTERS!" shouted the radar officer of the "Destined for Glory". The ship limped forward at a low speed, venting air as they went.

"Remove all power from our secondary weapon systems! Power up the engines to full speed!" shouted Kobi 'Inanraree, commander of the ship. How long until the enemy fleet is in firing range?"

"Less than two minutes, they are already warming up their plasma cannons!"

Kobi 'Inanraree watched the screen in front of him flash with warning lights. The ship was venting air, and the reactor was going critical, not far from overloading. The right side of the hull had a hole clean through it, and every occupant was dead in those sections, and all most every Seraph fighter had been in the hangar that was blown away, preventing any real fighter screen protection. He moved his hand to the screen and touched a flashing red icon, and a new picture replaced the last one. He moved his hand to a new icon, a flashing black one. "Seal all airlocks to the right wing, prepare for separation!" There was a short silence as the crew tried to understand what he was going to do, but when it struck them they begun locking down everything. Kobi pressed the icon, and the ship shock violently as it lost several hundred tons of weight.

"Speed increasing!" an officer shouted. "Critical speed, outer shields layers burning away!"

Kobi 'Inanraree pressed an other icon, a green one, and a tactical screen showing the Jiralhane ships apeared. He took a closer look, and noticed an Assault Carrier of the same class as the "Destined for Glory". Set course to the cordinates 19:3:73,3:9!"

"But commander, that will put us on a colision course with the enemy!" one of the officers protested.

"Thats my intention..." Kobi 'Inanraree replied calmly. "Remove all power from the shields! Charge plasma cannons! Prepare the torpedos, look on the escorts surrounding the enemy assault carrier."

As one the shields vanished, of course no one saw it, but everybody noticed the sound of the hull that was burning. "Tell everyone to get to the closest drop ship and leave the ship! The ones trapped in the rear section and the armory, get to the escape pods! Landing zone will be marked on your HUD! Prepare for take off! There was a moment of silence as the crew on the bridge transfered his orders to the squad leaders and pilots aboard the ship. Confirmation sounds became coming in as the squad leaders got the message and prepared to get of the ship.

Kobi 'Inanraree turned away from the screen to see the bridge crew. "You have served well brothers, now, get to the pods! I will trigger the reactor into a critical melt down and fire the missiles, so prepare to leave the ship as soon as possible, we will only get a few seconds to get clear of this wrack before it enters the enemy formation, and then it will be to late!

The crew left their stations and went for the pods located on the back of the bridge. Kobi 'Inanraree turned, and looked at the screen once more. The sensors indicated that most drop ships had already left the ship and were heading for the surface, along with most of the drop pods. Kobi pressed a white icon, and the ships engines begun protesting, then begun losing power. The reactor was over heating. He triggered the weapon systems that were still functioning and the ship fired several salvos of torpedos, followed by an storm of plasma. Kobi 'Inanraree turned and ran for the pods. He entered the middle one, where his senior crew was sitting. No one said anything, and the pilot shut the door. Kobi took a seat at the back of the pod, and closed his eyes.

He barely noticed as the pod left the ship, and begun flying towards the surface of the planet.

Wattinr ran from his post in the after torpedo bay, crushing some Ugnot as he ran and pushing his remaining crew towards a Phantom bay in the back of the ship. Massive quakes rocked them from side to side as enemy plasma lances struck home upon the ships hull. They rounded a corner and found there way blocked by a plasma battery that had fallen from its morring and onto the floor. A lone warrior stood there, trying with all his might to move the heavy wieght, but to no avail.

Wattinr ran over and put his weight behind it, say, "Let me help you honorable warrior." With a nood, they began to push and the battery slowly lifted up, but not quite far enough. Turning to his remaining crew he yelled, "Don't just stand there you wrhtless sons of dogs, give us a hand." With that the crew lent there strength and Wattinr and the warrior quickly crossed to the other side.

Right as the crew were making there way across an explosion threw more battery cells down on the top and crushed the crew as fire lept up and licked at his feet. Wattinr moved to try and save any that may have survived, but the mysterious warrior pulled him along and urged him towards the Phantom. Wattinr turned with a tear in his eyes and ran along with him and into the ship.

Wattinr doesn't even watse time with such a simple and ridiculous question. He purged it from his mind, offering up a prayer to the gods that their souls be taken to paradise and the end of the Great Journey.

He turned to the warrior and nodded, and the two of them sprinted towards and into the Phantom; Wattinr sealing it shut after allowing a few more survivors on. He turned to the warrior, and thumped his hand against his chest to salute.

"I do not know how to operate one of these devices, perhaps you have the technical skill required? Otherwise great warrior, we are finished!"
Wattinr turned to his new leader, Innanraree, and said, " I will follow you, but from a distance great warrior. I'm better when I strike from the shadows, thus I will shadow your group and eliminate any sniper or enemy reconnaissance personal for you."

He stood at attention and waited for a reply
Wattinr didn't need any further explanations about his mission, he knew the task ahead. As the phantom came to a stop and the warrior jumped out Wattinr waited until the phantom took off again. "Pilot, go to the cliff there, now!" They appraoched the cliff and Wattinr jumped out with his sword in hand. He moved slowly, making sure to keep the warriors figure within easy site as he crept through the brush. He ran across two enemy snipers, easily dispatching them with silent strokes and then moved on.

However, as the searched progressed, he came across as small sniper encamptment. three jackels and a brute stood there, all watching the pass up ahead; the same pass the warrior was about to enter. Wattinr could tell this wasn't good, there was no way he could dispatch the enemy quietly with this assortment. He ducked back into the shadows and sent a message via his armors holy comset to the warrior, hoping he got it in time.

(OCC: Doolego, I'm gonna wait til you give me further instructions, I didn't wat to GM it. Let me know what you want me to do)
