    Zenith swerved around, taking evasive action as bolts came swarming in. Normally at this point they'd just let the missiles do their jobs. Frigate shields could be battered with torpedoes, but there wasn't much point to it, generally.

    "Flight leader," she commed, "Do you want the interceptor squadron to engage the frigate? I was thinking a flyby might give more clues about what's going on here."

    OOC: I still need an action from Storm (and maybe Wes, though nothing's in turbolaser range right now).

    All stations, link to my firing control. Storm will direct the missiles at a single target, hoping to maximize the damage to one point.

    Oh, sorry, I thought we were still on the same round.

    We are still at long range right?

    I'll link all the missiles to a single attack against the frigate this time. Taking the two aim actions ofcourse.

    "Okay, folks," shouts Wes. "Vector in on command and control systems, once we're in range see if we can pound 'er into debris. Keep an eye out for friendly fire."

    OOC
    Basically, Wes is freeing them up to fire, at will, once we're in range, but aiming them away from some areas the fighters will focus on.

    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)

    The Imperial frigate's proton missiles again didn't penetrate Taelros' shields, neither the latest launch nor the previous one's attempt to re-acquire the target.

    With all four missile launchers firing as a battery under Strom's command, three of the long-range missiles converge on the same target on the enemy warship, blasting through its shields to severely damage the frigate underneath (it seems likely another hit like the last one would finish the frigate off, though it took some good attack and damage rolls -- the attack roll was high enough to get two extra damage dice, and then I rolled above average on 12d10).

    "You're clear to get a closer look at them, E-3" The wing commander says to Zenith. "Just don't get close enough that it could hit you with point-defense weapons."

    "Understood," Zenith replied with a grin. "Going in for a flyby. Don't kill it before I can get a look though...doesn't look like it's gonna last through another volley."

    The exhausts on her e-wing flare with blue plasma as it accelerates towards the heavily damaged frigate. She concentrates entirely on evading the incoming turbolaser fire as she seeks to get close enough to get a more detailed look at why this scenario seems so one-sided...

    (I believe there's a Flying Defensively option that I will take as I go in. Not sure how close I have to get, but assume Zenith keeps going until she gets a good visual or until ordered to return...or until she's just outside PD battery fire range)

    Zenith flies closer to the Imperial frigate, two of the other E-Wings flanking her, but she doesn't notice anything unusual, at least not from the range she can get to this round.

    Istara

    When you search you feelings, you get a vague sense of unease, but you don't think approaching the frigate would be any more dangerous than you'd expect it to be.

    Rosa keeps watching the battle from her viewpoint on the emergency bridge. She once again opens her com to the pilots in the P-wings. "Close in on the enemy to medium range and then open fire," she orders, turning back to the holographic map in front of her, waiting for her orders to be followed.

    "We should avoid blowing her up if we can, a working Nebulon C would be pretty informative, but we can't rule out that the reason she's been such an easy target is they want us to blow it up...maybe they put a bunch of orphans on it, or its a medical frigate and they are looking to score political points." Istara mused approaching her wingmate's position.

    When Zenith and Istara make their flyby, the frigate fires its turbolasers at them, but as you well know, except with the most experienced gunners, capital ship weapons other than point-defense weapons aren't much use against starfighters. They'll destroy them in one hit if they manage a hit, but the odds are low.

    The P-Wings, escorted by the wing commander and the other half of the squadron, continue to close to medium range, with Taelros following behind them. And the Nebulon C keeps inexplicably closing.

    "Give me a channel to the Imperials." Commander Cyn said to a communications rating.

    "Imperial Frigate, we have destroyed your fighter wing and badly damaged your ship, and possess the capability to destroy you before our vessel is in effective range of your weapons. We will do so if you do not surrender immediately."

    "No response, sir."

    "Damn." The captain said. "Unless we took out their comm section, something's up. Grand Admiral Pellaeon isn't in the habit of shooting officers that surrender a hopeless position."

    Zenith and Istara

    As you close with the firgate, you sense far fewer presenses in the Force than you ought to on an Imperial ship the size of the frigate.
