    "Everybody ready?" General Kevin Skis' voice rang through the comm. "Cutting to sublight."

    Telia Aris was sitting in the co-pilot seat next to her commandor, very anxious to get the rescue underway.

    They had just learned that now they had to rescue two people. Ty-gon had been captured as well.

    Telia had gotten everyone prepped and in character as they began to send their code clearance.

    "O.k. everyone," she said. Telia was a little nervous, she had never been in charge of preparing a large group before. "Remember, that no one talks unless it is absolutley nessasary. General Ski and I will be the "commandors" over everyone, so just follow our lead."

    There was a beeping in the cockpit, Telia ran to see what the latest problem was. "Sir, what is it?"

    "Thirteen, looks like they want to talk to one of the commandors, to get an explanation to why we were late." Skis' face was grim.

    "O.k., let me try something."

    General Ski moved out of the pilots seat so Telia could reach the comm.

    Telias' voice suddenly became silky as she began to speak. "This is Commandor Summerton. Is there a problem sir."

    "Well yes there is Commandor." The voice that came back to her sounded surprised. Probably because there were expecting to hear a males voice instead her own. "That is, it is very unlikely that one of our ships was left behind."

    "Flight officer...?"

    "Dekker"

    "Yes, Flight officer Dekker, it is all very simple. Does our clearnce code check out?"

    "Yes Commandor Summerton, it does."

    "Then I'll just give you the summary of what happened. We were staying behind to cover the tracks of that missing Rebel. The rest of you didn't have enough brains to do the same and wait for us." She added some sweetness to her voice. "That sounds just about what the rest of you would do doesn't it?"

    "Well, I guess so Commandor." Telia could hear him stumble for words.

    "Tell you what Dekker," Telia turned the sound of her voice into silk. "When you let us on the ship, you can take me out and I will personally explain the rest of the story. O.k.?"

    The Flight officer gulped as he replied. "Transmiting your approval to board the ship now."

    "Thank you Dekker." With that, she turned off the comm before he could say anything more.

    Telia turned to General Ski. "How was that sir?"

    Lieutenant Jade tugged nervously at the collar of her newly acquisitioned outfit. Whoever it had previously belonged to had not been the same shape as Mara in any dimension, which was not surprising; it was highly unlikely that its former owner had been a petite teenage girl.

    She'd done her best with the small sewing kit she kept around for field repairs, but it still looked too big. It just did not fit right...

    It doesn't matter, she told herself sternly. Nobody cares how you look. Stop thinking about it.

    Instead, she focused her attention on the rapidly growing shape of the Star Destroyer that she and her comrades were about to infiltrate. The young hacker gulped as she considered the task, but reminded herself that it had been done before. And hey, Luke Skywalker had only been a few months older than she was during the famous Death Star rescue...

    Still, as the shuttle prepared to dock with the Star Destroyer, Mara Jade couldn't help but feel worried. Her comrades had proven very talented during training, but this was their first real test. If she or any of the others screwed up now, the results would not be good. They could even prove fatal--

    Don't think that way, she scolded herself. There's absolutely nothing to be gained by fretting.

    Mara let herself brood about the fit of her stolen uniform again. It was a much less dangerous subject.

    "Troops. we ready?" General Kevin Ski looked at his group of commandos. They all had the 'liberated' uniforms on. He received several unsure helmeted head nods.

    "Good, and try to look, uh, Imperial."

    "Imperial? There isn't enough room to breath in here." That was Stone. The General heard several other gripes from other members.

    Bullwinkle was the loudest. "I don't know why I have to go. Am I going to drill them on survival techniques? Will I have to throw spoons at them in the heat of battle?

    "Cut the chatter. Let's go."

    He propped the laser rifle into his gut and pressed the button for the dropship hatch to lower. He swaggered a little as he led his group out and into the unknown.

    Captain Jane Jinn looked up in surprise as the guards brought not one, but two members of the Talon Intelligence Squad into the room that had been set aside for the extraction of information.

    "What's this?"she asked briskly.

    "Intruder, sir. Caught in the same cell as our prisoner during a rescue attempt."

    "So we have two of you now."Captain Jinn kept a smile from her face.

    "Jane!"cried the younger of the two. She knew him. They even shared the same name, through some galactic coincidence.

    "Ty-gon,"she replied coolly, then motioned to the guards."Tie them down. Use everything, even the headstraps."

    "Jane, what are you doing here?"Jaren Kai asked. He'd already been roughed up by the guards once, but struggled anyway as they forced him to the table and began to fasten the straps around his wrists and ankles."You used to work for us, remember?"

    "I remember."

    "And now you're working for the enemy?"Ty-gon burst out, struggling as much as he could, but the guards, having finished with wrists and ankles, were already pulling the long straps over his knees, waist, and shoulders, and he was scarcely able to move.

    "The enemy, Ty-gon, is whoever is NOT paying me,"Captain Jinn replied.

    "But you worked for us--you got transferred to the Jedi Council--you're one of the good guys!"He still couldn't believe it.

    "Those orders were faked--or should I say--Forced?"Now she did smile, thinking of the pun. Humour. It made life so much easier.

    "No wonder you know so much about Imperial torture techniques, Lieutenent Jinn,"Jaren Kai groaned. The guards fastened the strap across his forehead and stepped back, their work done.

    "It's Captain, now. Higher rank, higher pay. And yes, I should know. I invented them."

    Ty-gon Jinn was bound down as Jane started interrogating Kai. He looked through the room, then back at the other Jinn. He was about to give up hope, when he noticed the object hanging from her belt- his lightsaber.
    He leaned out from behind her back where Kai could see him. "Jaren," he mouthed. "Get ready to catch!"
    Before Kai could object, the saber flew from Jane's belt, and ignited. Instantly, it was in Kai's hand. It slashed through the bounds holding him down.
    The guard Jane brought turned on him, but Ty-gon yanked his blaster rifle away with the Force. Kai caught it, tossed the saber to Ty-gon, and held the blaster right at Jane.
    Ty-gon severed his own bonds, and quickly brought down the guard. He turned to find Kai holding Jane at blasterpoint. He quickly drew the blaster pistol she had hidden away from her. "I'm disappointed in you Jane. You underestimated us."
    Outside the cell, Ty-gon found the part to the transparency device that had resisted the magnetic seal and caused the device to short circut. He reinstalled it. They were now almost invisible.
    A wave of his hand, and he watched as all the Imperial guards rushed to the other side of the detention block, responding to a slight sound.
    Kai led the way back to the docking bay, Jane still at gunpoint, when they ran into someone. The blaster pistol Ty-gon had recovered was ready to be fired until they realized- The people standing in front of them were Commander Ski, Mekial, Mara Jade, and Quis.
    "Jane?" Ski was dumbfounded.
    Jane Jinn only snarled.

    "Guess who's working for the Empire,"said Kai grimly."But she didn't have enough time to get any secrets out of me."

    "I would have liked the chance to torture Commander Kithera,"Jane Jinn said, giving them all a harsh glance."She never laughed at my jokes."

    Stone and Mekial entered the maximum-sceurity section. They'd decided it would be the most logical place to start looking.
    "What do you two want?" asked a bored-looking lieutennt sitting at the main console.
    "We're here to escort the two prisoners to Interrogation, sir," said Stone, trying desperately to keep the nervousness out of his voice.
    "That was twenty minutes ago, trooper."
    Stone shared a look with Mekial. These guys work quick, don't they?
    "Sorry about that, sir. Must be a computer glitch in our section," Mekial told him, lowering her voice so the officer wouldn't get suspicious. "We'll go and report it now."
    The two got back into the turbolift, not daring to breathe until the doors had closed.
    "That could have gone better."
    "And what would we have done if they had been in there, and the lieutenant didn't believe our excuse? Pull a Solo and gone swimming in the garbage masher?"
    "Alright, alright. Interrogation room?"
    "That's what the man said, 'trooper'."
    Stone tried to shoot her a look, but he couldn't see a thing in that helmet.

    As the two exited the lift into the Interrogation section, they spotted the costumed forms of the General and their teammates, who were apparently leading-
    "Captain Jinn?"

    Jane Jinn. Mekial couldn't believe it.

    She quickly looked at Ty-Gon and Jaren. Jane couldn't of been interrogating them for long, because they were still in one piece, and she didn't see any broken bones on either of the two.

    Looks like we got here just in time

    The General aimed the large laser rifle at Jinn. He smiled. She scowled at him. All of the sudden a very large crash occurred at end of the detention block hallway. Stormtroopers started pouring into the hallway. Laser blasts filled the room. The General grabbed Jinn and threw her to Stone.
    "Take her to the ship."
    He fired a very effective cover fire with the laser rifle. "Get out of here," he yelled at his squad. "I'll be ok. Just get to the ship." He sawed his squad leave the detention cell. He stood up and backed away, firing at the same time.

    Kit jumped ship leaving Rinin iside and made herway through the passages. The last thing she expected to see was Jane standing, her hands behind her back. The other's roughly propelling her along the corrodors.

    "Um excuse me but have you guys gone totally nuts?" she asked.
    "She's with the enemy." Ty-gon explained.
    "Glad to see your feeling better." Commander Ski commented.
    "Thankyou sir. With the enemy?"
    "Yeah, she seems to have a certain death wish against you too." ty-gon smiled. Kithera just glowered in suprise. She pulled Ski asided.
    "Sir, I have enough weapons on board my ship to blow this place sky high." she said smiling. "But only if you want me too."

    Kriff! Where am I?!?

    Lieutenant Mara Jade looked around her and slowly realized that the vrelt was definitely in the kitchen now. Somehow, she'd taken a wrong turn, and she was now hopelessly lost. She had no clue where the rest of the squadron was, but she didn't think they could exactly afford to wait around very long.

    She had to find them.

    "Hey!"

    Lieutenant Jade froze, then realized that the person speaking didn't know who she really was. If he had, she would have been captured or killed already.

    She quickly spun and saluted the officer who stood a couple paces away, frowning at her. "Yes, sir?" she asked brightly, praying to any god that would listen that her voice wasn't shaking noticeably.

    "This is a restricted area," the man informed her harshly. "What are you doing here?"

    "Sir... uh..." Mara thought desperately. "Um, I'm really sorry, sir! I'm a new transfer, just got here. I don't know my way around yet..."

    The suspicious frown faded to an irritated expression. Mara could almost hear him thinking, These blasted idiot recruits... get stupider every day. "Well, then, let me show you the exit," said the officer, his patience obviously strained as he herded her towards a door on the far side of the room. Before she could stammer out a "Thank you, sir," Mara found herself in yet another unfamiliar corridor, completely lost.

    Suddenly, she caught sight of something down the hall and to her right. A computer terminal.

    With a grin, Lieutenant Jade started towards it. Not only could she find a map of some sort, but she could get some valuable information for Talon Squadron...

    Better make it fast, though... I bet the others are pretty eager to get out of here. Come to think of it, so am I.

    He looked at his chronometer. "Go, go, go!"

    He found Captain Kithera again and said, "Go plant your explosives. You have 5 minutes. I send the squad to the hangar. I have some gear and I will try and establish a good tap on the Star Destroyer?s main computer. I have R2 download it straight from the data stream from this ship." He holstered the laser rifle. He smiled. "Don?t worry I?ll be ok."

    He split up from the group. Kit had gone to do her mission while the others save Jade had gone to the ship. By the way, where is she?.

    He couldn?t worry about that now. He swaggered a little in the stolen uniform. He strolled right up to a computer terminal and pulled out his datapad and special comlink. He pulled out a gadget of his own, something he had been working on in his spare time. It was a self-loading computer virus chip. Right before the Star Destroyer would explode, the virus would attack the central computer and send out a data stream. All of the computer?s contents would be intercepted by the Hawk and the Eagle on the ground. He finished his work. He started walking to the hangar. A trooper in a Lieutenant?s uniform confronted him. "This place is restricted for enlisted scum like you. What rank and number? Do you have any clearance?"

    "Yeah, well I?m Mister Nice Guy and here?s my clearance." He blasted the trooper right in the gut with the laser rifle. He shot several trooper that heard the blast and turned to see the ship?s Admiral coming out of a meeting room as he turned a corner leading to the hangar.

    "Sergeant? What was that sound I heard?"

    "Uh, it was just a weapons malfunction."

    "Who are you? I never have seen you around here before." The Admiral looked at his guards. "Arrest this person. I want to question him."

    "But-"

    "Who are you then?"

    Pause.

    The General used this time to pull out a Class A thermal detonator and shove it into the Admiral?s hands.

    "I?m Mister Nice Guy, the guy who just put that bomb in your hands. And now I?ve got to go." He ran to the hangar as the bewildered Admiral shoved the bomb into one of his guard?s hands and ran.

    As Kevin Ski gave was about to give the order to blow up the ship, Bullwinkle spkoe up. "Sir? Mara Jade is missing."
    The commander stopped. "Cancel that order," he said.
    Ty-gon Jinn stepped forward. "Commander, maybe I've done enough already, and I don't want it to seem like I'm trying to play the hero, but I'll go after her. And if you do choose to send me, I promise I won't get reckless like I did trying to rescue Jaren."
    "A Jedi probably would be the best choice to retrieve her," Kithera said.
    "Very well," Commander Ski agreed. "May the Force be with you." He turned to the operators. "Hold the detonation until Ty-gon returns."

    Mara Jade looked through the computer terminal, hoping to find something that could help the Squad. There! She had found it!

    Jane Jinn watched Ty-gon go. She considered making a run for it and striking him down, but the sight of Jaren Kai with the blaster rifle stifled that thought.

    "Wait!" Quis cried, pushing her way past her squad mates and grasping the arm of Ty-Gon. "Let me go with you."

    Ty-Gon looked at her intensley, his eyes told her no.

    "It's too dangerous Quis," Ski commented. "We've gone through all this to rescue these two, I won't have the death of an untrained weapons expert on my concience."

    She looked at him pleadingly. "But... my device, it could help him," she was struggling for a reason, but something told her to go with the Jedi.

    "He can operate it by himself, Seven," Ski replied bluntly. He saw the look in her eyes and continued more softly. "You'll be a greater help if you come with us."

    Quis looked back at the Jedi, she still clutched his arm.

    "I'll be alright Quis," he reassured her.

    She released his arm and pulled her shoulders back, her dark hair falling across her face. Ty-Gon turned his back without another word, heading down the corridor.

    What on Coruscant was that about? Why go and do a silly thing like that, making a fool of yourself. It's not like you know him anyway, Quis. Pull yourself together! He'll be fine.

    She watched him for a moment longer and ran to catch up with the rest of the squad who were walking in the opposite direction.

    Here we go again. Another rescue.

    "Ok, here's how we do this. Q, you find some power terminal inside the hangar, I have an idea. Stone, take a couple blasters and seal off the exits except the one Ty-gonn left out of. Set up several barricades and defend the ship the best you can. Q, did you find a power terminal?"

    "Yes, there several within the hangar." She pointed to the approximate locations of several of them.

    "Good, I want to use your devices to hide the signature of our squad. We'll use the extra power from the terminals to give them the extra juice they need to hide all of us at the various barricades. Jaren, get on top of the ship with and act as our lookout and sniper. We'll probably have several squad coming here at once."

    They finished and the General sat with the rest of the group awaiting either the return of Ty-gonn with Jade or the appearance of the troopers. Unfortunately the latter came first. Several squad rounded the corner into the hangar. The leader shouted and all dove and took cover. A firefight ensued. The General was hit in his arm. He refused to take refuge inside the ship, it was only a flesh wound.

    Jaren took out several trooper sergeants with his rifle, all with pin-point accuracy.

    Several more squads rounded the corner. The fight was beginning to fail. All of the sudden, a loud explosion sent several dozen troopers flying towards the squad. General Ski took out the remaining with a long burst of blaster fire from his laser rifle. The smoke cleared quickly and two figures appeared, Ty-gonn and Mara Jade, both unhurt.

    General Kevin Ski didn't say anything as the whole squad rushed to get them. He simply pulled out his comlink and pressed the bright yellow recall button. Five minutes later several ships landed in the hangar, including the Fledgling and her sister ship, the Eaglet. The very large Hawk and Eagle landed very close to both to those as well. The unnamed X-wing landed on the far side of the transports.

    The General yelled over the high whine and low pitched roll of the ships' engines. "If you don't mind, I'd like to finish this mission. Were not in the clear yet. We'll have to escape this fleet and infiltrate the main mercenary base at a later time. Lieutenant Ken, take the Fledgling. I'll take the Eaglet. The rest of you split up into the remaining ships. If your in a transport, man a turret. I don't care if your not a great pilot, right now I just need pilots. Someone take the X-wing. We'll need it."

    He ran to the Eaglet and threw on his personal helmet. "Let's go!"

    Her hands bound behind her back, Jane Jinn almost stumbled as Stone propelled her roughly into the Eagle. Thrusting her into a seat, he commanded,"Stay there! I'll blast you if I see you so much as twitch!"

    Jane relaxed, willing to do exactly as he said. She had not considered using the commotion of the fight to escape. What was the point? They planned to blow up the ship and because she knew them, she knew they would succeed. And anyway, there were things that were worse than being captured by Talon Squad. Jaren Kai had found that out.

    With a running leap, Kendrik dropped into the pilot's seat of the Fledgling, flipping toggles with one hand as he jammed his flight-helmet onto his head with the other. The sound of the A-wing's engines humming to life was like music to his ears. He nudged the fighter towards the opening of the hangar, stretched out with an arm to slam his canopy shut.

    "We don't have much time!" he said into his com, for the benefit of anyone who was listening. "The pirates will have a fighter screen set up to block us off if we don't hurry."

    He saw the Eaglet scream past him into open space, the larger Eagle and Hawk not far behind. Ken punched the throttle and was pressed back into his seat as his A-wing willingly leapt forward. He cleared the hangar and was making good time when he saw the first of the pirates' defense.

    "Uglies!" he shouted. "Coming in at point two ten!"

    The swarm of incoming enemy starfighters, cobbled together from parts of various other ships, were indeed ugly. But he doubted the pirates could afford better. Ken snap-rolled to starboard as green lasers began to hiss in his direction. Most went wide, a few bouncing harmlessly off his shields. But he knew things wouldn't stay so easy

    He brought the Fledgling's nose up, saw a X-wing/Y-wing/Z-95 Headhunter hybrid waver into his targetting brackets. On cue, the Ugly began to juke, but the pilot had taken too long to realize the danger. Ken's finger tightened on the trigger. The pirate ship flew apart in a plume of smoke and debris.

    One down. Only a couple dozen more to go. He wheeled his ship toward another group of approaching fighters. Ken glanced at his sensors, then rocked back in his seat, feeling a boulder drop into his stomach. Slowly, he reached up to tag his pickup.

    "Lead, I read one Interdictor-class cruiser, closing with us fast. The fighters were only a delaying tactic. They're going to try to trap us here so we can't go to hyperspace."

    "Lead to Nine. Don't worry. Just keep the uglies off of the transports. I called the Republic fleet. They should be hear any time. Besides, the Interdictor already has it's gravity wells online."

    He keyed his special comlink. "Hawk and Eagle, Lead here. Prepare to recieve an incoming data transmission from the Star Destroyer." He keyed the command for the virus to attack the central computer. A few minutes later he saw the lights go out on the Star Destroyer. The virus had totally eliminated the computer so all equipment, including life-support, had failed. He then pressed the DESTRUCT button on his comlink and the ship exploded, firs around the hangar and spreading to the extremities of the ship. The ship lay dead for a moment and then the burning carcass of the ship was caught by the planet's gravitational field and it slowly spiralled towards the surface. He heard several cheers from the squad.

    "Lead, Nine here. Good work. I couldn't have done it better myself."

    Meanwhile the dogfight was continuing, despite the absence of the mercenary flagship. Kevin did a lazy-S and pulled in right behind a small TIE interceptor. It was definitly not an ugly but something made it stand out more. The red stripes on it's solar panels. That was strange. These were mercenaries not Imperials. He looked at his sensor screen and toggled through several mercenary capital warships. What he found he did not like. Coming around the nightside of the planet were two Imperial-class Star Destroyers. He couldn't pull any stats off the ships but their names and origins proclaimed they were from some rogue Imperial warlord.

    "Lead to group, we have Imperials coming in at a vector of 238.9. They have already launched several waves of fighters. Who ever is in the X-wing, play close escort for the transports. Nine, launch your mag pulse warheads as soon as the Imp Starships get within firing range. I have a plan that might allow us to escape if the fleet doesn't get here in time."

    He snapped rolled and pulled a hammer-head away from the planet. The trick confused the attacking TIE's. He pulled around and blasted several TIE's and even one R-41 from existence. He saw the Imp TIE and started firing random shots at it from behind. Several laser bolts struck home and the solar panels ripped free of the ball and it exploded into and incandescent cloud of free hydrogen and plasma.

    He blasted several more uglies and before he actually came up with a plan. He armed the indiscreet warhead launcher at the back of the Eaglet. It carred on proton bomb, enough to take out any captial ship. The bad thing about it was it moved at a very slow rate and he had to aim the bomb as he passed over a target since it fired backwards.

    He shunted all power to his engines, including his shield and laser power. Training at Recon Squad had taught him to be able to fly and out-maneuver any turbolaser or blaster without shields. He aimed the A-wing towards the Interdictor and put it in full throttle. He would save his squad or die trying.

    Jaren Kai sat in the laser turret of the Hawk warming up the cannons and familiarizing himself with the controls. These guns were vastly different than his sniper rifle, but the basic principle was the same: aim, shoot, repeat.

    It almost surprised him that less than an hour ago, he had coimmited himself to die a horrible, unpleasant death at the hands of Jane Jinn, the former Talon EIFTE agent, turned traitor. But the entire squad had mounted a rescue mission and freed he and Ty-gonn.

    They were not quite out of the sarlaac pit yet, however. They still had to get off the Star Destroyer and make it into hyperspace.

    The Hawk rose quickly off the hanger deck and, amid a hail of blaster fire from enemy troops, shot out into space.

    Jaren activated his targeting scanners and swung the lasers around to the nearest enemy starfighter. It was a strange conglomeration of used parts probably scavenged off of whatever was handy. The wings were from a TIE fighter while the fuselage looked like it was from a Y-wing. The back half had been gutted to accomodate engines.

    The starfighter fired it's lasers at maximum range but they just bounced harmlessly off the shields of the Hawk.

    Jaren took careful aim and fired. His first shot went high, but he quickly corrected his aim and the next shots were dead on. Dead for the pilot that was. The cobbled-together ship took Jaren's blasts and began to shake visibly. The shaking increased and it eventually disentegrated in a brilliant explosion.

    Jaren swung the turret around and took out a pair of aging Z-95s as they began to make an attack run on the Eagle.

    As Jaren took aim at his next target an alarm sounded and he noticed several ships drop out of hyperspace. An Interdictor Cruiser and several Star Destroyers had appeared and were launching TIE fighters and Interceptors. The Imperials had arrived.

    I sure hope somebody's got a brilliant plan, he thought, or at least a fleet of Mon Cal Cruisers.

    Ty-gon Jinn sat in the pilot's seat of the X-wing. He rolled quickly, and dove toward the onslaught of TIEs that were attacking the Hawk, Eagle, Eaglet, and Fledgling. He flew right in between the crowd of fighter, forcing a huge amount of fighters to veer up. He turned, and all the veering fighters began to pursue him.
    He manuvered until he saw a second Star Destroyer. He swerved in toward it.
    The entire group of TIEs closed in on him. Jinn probed their minds, finding that they were kamikaze pilots. This was perfect. He flew directly between the power generators of the Destroyer Bridge. He veered up after getting through.
    He made a complete U-turn right as the TIEs were zooming through the generators. He let some concussion missles fly. After firing, he veered out of the way of the explosion, and jumped to hyperspace.
    All the TIEs that had followed him exploded.
    As he came out of hyperspace, he noticed that the number of TIEs was significantly smaller.
    "All right," he thought. "Here I come."
    The five ships moved into position to attack the uglies.

    Aboard the Eagle Quis struggled to keep the cross hair centered on the screaming fighters. They were to fast for her.

    "Damnit!"

    She mashed the trigger with frustration, swiveling the turret in all directions. A spray of laser fire lashed out like nails from Eagle's hull.

    "Steady, Q," came Jaren's calming voice over the comm. "Just concentrate on a single fighter at a time. Forget about the others, just pick them off one at a time."

    She wiped the sweat from her brow and brushed her hair aside. Come on Quis, you can do this.

    A group of Imperial fighters was on an intercept vector, Eagle was its goal - Quis targeted the leader.

    "Eat this!"

    She picked off the leader, along with one of its wingmen.

    "Well I'll be damned! That girl's got a fine aim on her." It was Jaren over the comm. "We might make a soldier out of you yet, Q!"

    Quis supressed a smile as the fighters continued the attack.

    "Eagle to Lead. We'd all like to know what that ace is you've got hidden up your sleeve..."

    She looked up to see the A-Wing hurtling toward the Interdictor cruiser.

    "Hey!"

    "Sir," cried Jaren who'd seen it also from the turret of Hawk.

    The commander did not reply.
