IC: Captain Husk (NPC) Bridge, Rebel Carrier Intrepid His back to the command staff working tirelessly behind him, Captain Husk, commanding officer of the rebel carrier Intrepid took in a deep breath and released it as he stared at the stars outside the transparisteel window in front of him. An hour had passed since the last of the Black Sheep had returned, their mission a success, lauded by his superiors after he had reported the results. Their casualties though...their casualties had been high. One X-Wing lost out of four. Two out of five B-Wings, one to an accident. Worse still were the Y and A wing losses. Only one craft each had returned, both flight leaders had been lost. The squadron had been crippled, crippled though for a good cause. Or so Husk hoped. The results reported by the squadron had yet to be confirmed, though the returning pair of X-Wings from the Intruder squadron would soon be able to do that. "Sir, Commander Kryze is back on board, we're ready to jump to hyperspace..." it was the flight operations officer, Felix. Husk turned forlornly to look at him for a moment before again returning his attention to the stars. "Very well, make the..." There was a warning klaxon which threatened to drown out LT Felix's voice. "New contacts, edge of sensor range." Husk's shoulders tensed as she spun around, waiting for an ID on the new incoming targets. Had the recon mission somehow been tracked back to the carrier? If so, they could always jump now and hopefully the tracker wasn't actually locked onto one of their hulls. Or was this an Imperial scouting party that had just gotten lucky? If that was the case he would launch Viper squadron and fight them off, hopefully bringing in a prisoner or two for interrogation. He frowned, waiting for his report. It normally didn't take this long for LT Felix to... "Standby..." The LT's eyes were wide as he peered at his sensor screen, but Husk couldn't wait any longer. "Report Lieutenant!" He barked at the junior officer who finally replied in a relived tone. "It's just a pod of purgils sir," That brought an end to the tension on the bridge. "They're moving off." Husk nodded, ready again to begin the countdown to a hyperspace jump when Lieutenant Iala, the ship's communications officer spoke up. "I'm getting a rebel transponder from within the pod sir." "An Alliance code?" Husk asked perplexed. The answer though brought a joyous cheer to the bridge crew. "Yes sir, it's Black Five..." TAG: None. End of Episode 104/105 OOC: I know some of you haven't posted your final jump away from the system, but I'm going to move us along here.
