Barbossa: Bring them up on hailing channels... Only fire when we have determined ..
*A rumble from the deflector blast brings the shields down..*
Barbossa: Why the hell did they attack us?
Vax: Do we fire back?
Barbossa: Fire back.. Crafty sons of scully maids tried to kill us.
*The Delta contingent soon open fire on the Garrett Anderson full force and without mercy.*
*The Garret Anderson's shields take a direct hit and she begins evasive manoeuvres. The Rebel reinforcements arrive but the Anderson has already taken too much of a beating. Forbes is trying desperately to stop a plasma conduit overloading as Sick Bay is evacuated.*
Forbes: C'mon Doc! Hurry! In 30 seconds I'll have to raise the Forcefield!
*The EMH helps 3 patients past Forbes.*
Where's Doctor Melbourne?
*Forbes drops his head before looking up as two wounded crewmen are trying to reach him.*
Computer: Warning. Plasma Overload in 10 seconds.
*The two crewmen have almost reached him, but are still too far away.*
*Forbes holds his hand over the forcefield control.*
*The crewmen are still 3 meters away. Forbes looks away.*
*He activates the Forcefield. The conduit explodes, destroying the corridor behind the forcefield.
The next few moments are filled with silence. Forbes slowly looks up, and sees space out the Hull breach.
He just stares out for a few seconds, horrified.
Suddenly, the comm system whistles.*
Hart *Over comm*: All hands! Abandon Ship!
*The Evacuation Klaxon sounds.*
Computers: Life Support Offline. Abandon Ship. This is not a drill. Abandon Ship.
*Forbes is still staring out the hull breach when the EMH places a hand on his shoulder.*
EMH: Ensign... we have to go.
*Forbes wipes his right eye, wiping away a tear that was forming. The EMH tightens his grip.*
There was nothing you could do. Get to the escape pods. Now.
*Forbes stands up and shakes his head. He starts jogging towards the nearest Escape Pods.
Forbes is the last to enter as he makes sure the wounded from Sickbay get in first. Explosions can be heard in the background. Forbes gets in and slams his hand into the door controls and two blast doors come down. The Escape Pod jettisons seconds later. Forbes looks back as the Pulaski-Class Vessel (similar in look to the Olympic Class, but looks much more modern and streamlined) explodes.
The battle is raging, and the U.S.S. Excalibur flies past.*
Forrester *Over Comm*: This is Excalibur. We just lost the Garrett Anderson.
*OOC: I vote we leave the story there. It's a nice open ending. How the battle ended isn't important, just how it started and how it affected Forbes.*
*Present Day. Forbes is strolling down the Excalibur's Corridor when the Comm system chimes.*
Forrester *Over comm.*: All hands, stand by for combat! The enemy vessel is now approaching!
*Forbes' walk towards engineering turns into a run.
R.S.S. Matthew Neilson. The Borg-Synthesiser Vessel is now on viewscreen. Matt is staring grimly at it.*
Matt: How long?
John: It'll hit weapons range in 5 minutes. The Forward Vanguard is already in range.
Matt: Strike Force Alpha, engage. Taragi, tell your ships to open fire.
*The "Ghost" Fighters start heading towards the Cylinder, with the Raptors following as escort.
The Iconian Forward Vanguard open fire with their Antimatter Beam Guns. The Massive White Beams slam into the Cylinder's shields, doing no damage.
Taragi: This is the Dor'kat'a! Our weapons are having no effect!
*OOC: Remember, Iconian guns have low rate of fire, but are more powerful than anything else in the Galaxy (That rule applies to the Cylinder's antimatter guns as well, but she has a lot more of them) so that should give you a gauge on both the Cylinder's attacking power, and defensive power.*
Matt *Over Comm.*: Just distract them long enough for Alpha Wing to begin their assault!
*Matthew Neilson, Bridge.*
Matt: Forrester to Preston, if you could spare anymore ships, we'd appreciate it!
Keep in mind, if this thing gets past us, there's nothing between it and Earth, and we won't get a chance to attack once she enters the Kazaran Cluster.
*The Cylinder begins firing on the Iconian Forces.
Taragi: Taragi to Matthew Forrester! I just lost 5 of my ships! There are at least 20 Antimatter guns on the front of that thing!
Matt: Acknowledged! Hold your position as long as you can!
Alpha Wing, time to target?!
Pilot *Over comm*: 5 minutes!
