    OOC: At some point I mixed up Istara and Zenith. But Zenith is a dogfight, and Istara isn't.

    No updates tonight. Between my tabletop D&D game, and coming home to find my Orange were in a six-overtime game with UConn that was still going on when I got back....

    Imperial Fighters - 23
    Lt. Gellian (E1) - 21
    Zenith (E3) - 19
    Istara (E2) - 17
    Other fighters (E4-E9) - 16
    *Bombers (P1-P3) - 10
    Imperial Frigate - 6
    Taelros (including Rosa, Storm, Wes, and Sarcia) - (delayed to go after Imperials)

    A6's piloting would have been good enough to break out of the dogfight against many pilots. Zenith's Force-aided reflexes, though, were enough to keep the Imperial fighter from joining its fellows.

    The remaining four Imperial fighters concentrated their fire on P3, one missing wildly and one missing due to range more than anything, but two barrages of laser fire hit the toughest fighter craft in the Republic's fleet. P3's shields were seriously weakened, but it looked like the bomber only took minor damage.

    The wing commander slipped his E-Wing behind A9, and then his blaster turned the TIE Advanced into a useless ball of wreckage.

    Zenith found the tiniest of openings as she continued the dogfight, and let her blasters fire. And then A6 was no more.

    OOC: Shalimar - Although A8 moved, you could still get in PBS range, so I'm having Istara do that anyway unless you object.

    Istara followed in pursuit of a severely damaged Imperial fighter. At point blank range, it wasn't surprising that she hit it. Or that it was a pretty severe case of overkill.

    The rest of Taelros' fighter wing converged on the remaining pair of TIEs, three targeting each. E4, perhaps becoming overconfident, missed. E5 and E6 did not, and A10 joined its fellows. E7, E8, and E9 made no such mistakes with the last Imperial fighter; all three hit, and the Imperial fighter wing was finished.



    "Something doesn't feel right about this." Captain Cyn said. "It's been a long time since we could count on Imperials being stupid or overconfident enough to screw up badly by the numbers. And it looks like whoever's in charge over there just sacrificed his entire fighter wing to lightly damage one E-Wing and one P-Wing."

    Still flush from her one-on-one dogfight with a skilled pilot, Zenith kicks her E-wing forward to join the rest of the fighter wing. Without really thinking about what she's saying, she says the first thing to come to mind.

    "Maybe they want us to destroy the frigate."

    "Its possible...the imps aren't known for excessive intelligence." Istara agreed, but not as if she actually believed what she was saying. Holding position so that her fighter didn't stray into range of the Nebulon's main guns, the Pilot reached out with the force, trying to get a sense of why she was so uneasy about this.

    "Agreed," Rosa mutters as she takes a look at the Imperial frigate on her map. She frowns for a second. "What are they up to?"

    OOC: Just as a note, Istara won't search her feelings until the next round; the critical decision right now is whether you want to press the attack against the now-unescorted frigate or not.

    What has the Imperial Frigate been doing all the battle?

    Mostly, it's been closing range; last round it fired a couple of missiles at Taelros.

    "Bombers, continue your attacks. Keep an eye open out there, though."

    I've got a real bad feeling about this... she thinks as she watches the P-wings begin their attack run.

    The second run of the missiles the bombers fired seconds ago just missed the Imperial frigate, and detonated harmlessly. The bombers continued to close (move to column P on the map), and fired another volley of missiles, unfortunately not equaling their first shot (rolled a 5).

    The second pass of the Imperial's missiles fared no better, and the next pair of missiles it launched didn't really come close to Taelros. Its turbolasers took a shot at Zenith's fighter, but between the range and the difficulty of hitting starfighters with the main batteries of capital ship weapons, none of the shots really came close.
