You and you, with me!
*10 minutes later. Taragi's Battle Group surrounds the convoy and hails them.*
This is Commodore Taragi of the Iconian Imperial Navy to Convoy, stand down and prepare to be boarded!
Convoy Captain: What? We've broken no laws! You have no right to--
*Taragi's vessel fires its main cannon, ripping through the lead ship and hitting two more.*
Will anyone else attempt to fill his shoes?
Sensor Officer: Sir, they have engaged their weapons systems.
Taragi: Think about this carefully, Terrans. Even if you do manage to damage our shields, you will be destroyed long before you can escape.
Sensor Officer: They have powered down.
Taragi: Good. Seize one of them.
Sensor Officer: And the rest?
Taragi: They have outlived their usefulness.
*As the Officers begin to follow his orders.*
Cancel the boarding order and disengage the jamming field.
Sensor: Sir our orders were to seize--
Taragi: Our orders were to lure the Rebel Fleet out of hiding and that is what we will do!
Take cover in that asteroid belt on my order.
Target their engines. Make it look collateral.
Weapons Officer: Yes sir.
*Taragi's ship rips several of the Freighters apart before the Battle Group moves into an Asteroid Belt.
Freighter Captain *Over Comm, "..." represents static.*: This is Imperial Transport S.S. Asimo... request...istance. Engines go... need help... Mayday, may... May... day.
*The transmission cuts off.*
Sam: Where'd that signal come from?
Ops: Not far. Outside the nebula on Bearing 160 Mark 12.
David: How many signals are we registering?
Ops: 8, in total. 6 are very weak.
David: If it was one ship, I'd say yes.
Sir, we're talking about hundreds of people, and they're Imperial Citizens. If we help them...
Sam: Agreed. Helm, set course to intercept the Freighters.
Sound General Quarters.
Signal the Fleet, R.S.S. Republic is leaving formation.
*The Republic leaves the Fleet and reaches the Freighter group.
Taragi's Command Ship.*
Taragi: Like lambs to the slaughter.
Target their engines! I want them alive!
*The ship fires, the blast ripping through an asteroid before impacting the Republic's shields, barely breaking through. Another ship fires an EMP Blast which deactivates the Republic as the Battle Group moves in.*
Prepare a boarding party. Find the Republic's transponder and bring it aboard.
Inform the Command Ship that we have successfully disabled the R.S.S. Republic.
