*The Republic is hit by a blast. On the ship, the bridge is heavily damaged, with support columns falling and fires out of control. The Evacuation Klaxon is sounding.*
Matt: MOVE! Get to the escape pods!
*The whole bridge crew, whether carried or not, get into the emergency turbolift as shuttles and escape pods begin launching. Matt takes the helm console and starts to hit a few controls. Before he can finish programming the collision course, another hit takes Auto-Pilot offline.*
*Matt begins to take the ship in on manual, heading for the closest Iconian ship.*
Sam: Allington to Forrester. Matt, what the hell are you doing? Abandon ship!
Matt *over comm.*: Sorry Sam. No can do. If I'm going down, I'm taking them with me.
Sam: That's an order Commander! Matt? MATT!
*The Republic launches a fighter right before it collides with the Iconian Ship. The Republic doesn't even break through the shields. The Excalibur takes a direct hit before losing engines. Almost the entire fleet is either destroyed or disabled.*
*OOC: I'd get your ship(s) out of here. Don't pick up Sam or the fighter, you wouldn't be able to detect them.*
*The battle continues to rage as Klingon ships either try to ram the enemy or strafe them, always ending with the same result: nothing. The Iconian forces continue their onslaught. A fighter from the Republic is caught in the explosion of one of the allied ships and is knocked offline.*
*In the Veil, Siraga senses what is happening; all the death at the hands of his people.*
Siraga *Under his breath*: No!
*DS61. In his quarters, Ryan feels what is happening and begins to fade, his eyes letting out a glow of blue light before his body becomes limp.*
*On Vulcan, as Soval is teaching monks at Mt. Seleya, he collapses from pain, being caught by his students.*
*As the battle ends, The Gateway shuts down and the Iconian Ships start moving on separate courses at impulse. Sam just drifts helplessly above the Gateway, staring at the carnage.*
