# 1 Close calls & Great Escapes
11-27-2010, 02:33 PM
In pvp and war zones some times you are faced with impossable odds this thread is dedicated to the times when you survived those odds, when you shouldnt have

one time in kerrat the feds were neck in neck with the klinks for blowing up the repair hulks the closest one being under heavy enemy protection consisting of 3 cubes 2 spheres countless probes and 2 klinks. I gathered my courage, resigned to my impending death for the greater good and flew my ship into what was almost certain death. i came under heavy fire from the start before i even reached my target, but i pressed on determined to finish my mission. i finally got into weapons range and unleashed a heavy bombardment on the last repair hulk and fired untill there was only 3% hull left and let loose a hail of torpedos finishing my mission. still alive but fadeing fast i tryed manuvering around borg structures in an attempt to save the last 25 crewmen alive on my ship and ordered engines to full and to reroute all shield power to the rear faceings after what seemed an eternity i realised there was no one within weapons range and the borg were fighing with the klinks. exsusted with my ship limping along with no sheilds and only 14% of its hull left i called starfleet command with an update on mission succsess and orded the crew to make the ship warp ready to limp back to base -end-


feel free to make your tail overtly epic and over the top like mine or just a bear bones account of what happend (pics and vids welcomed)

Picture this....FvK Cap & Hold (with me on the Klingon side)...right from the beginning it was a slugfest near the station.With just a few points captured,everybody just forgot about the Cap & Hold part and went for an epic PvP battle....untill I died and respawned and saw,to my horror, the score was 1130 - 380 in favor of the Feds.With everyone taking part in the brawl near the station....it was an all or nothing gamble,I took off for the nearest Fed held capture point...if I could just stop the countdown....with that one neutral I went on to the next...and the next....counter stopped at 1130 - 24(!)
Finally I got some help from my team to capture all the neutral points.....and we won with just 24 points.

That,my friends,was an epic fight with a hard-won victory.

Special thanks to Starlana for keeping the Feds away from me....couldn't have done it without you sweety

It wasn't me, but a very sneaky fed pilot whose name escapes me right now. He was on a galaxy, and I was flying wingman to another BoP. We decloak and got him to 2%. Yeah 2%. He stayed there for 10-15~ seconds but we just couldn't take him out. Several escorts came around and we were forced to withdraw.

Theres this one time in C&H on my Fed Tactical, I was battling a Raptor 1 on 1, an Negh'var came up behind me and aided his comrade, my Prometheus was serverely damaged (12% hull). I managed to put some distance between us, but those Klingons were persistant and wanted me dead and kept pursuing me. I managed to limp back to the Station and those Klingons thought they had me, but instead the hunters ended up falling to the prey.


Another time I was in Ker'rat on my Sovereign battling a Borg Cube and got jumped by A BoP piloted by an experieced PVPer and a Carrier friend (god I hate carriers). I limped away with 26% hull and like above, those two took chase. I knew I was in a losing battle as it was and I decided to take a page from Wrath of Khan and limped towards the nearby planetoid and began orbiting it, eventually losing the carrier and putting me 1 on 1 with that experienced BoP Captain. I managed to damage him enough to run, which bought me time to reconfigure to counter his Photonic shockwaves. When he returned, I was ready and quickly defeated him with a Tricobalt Torpedo to the face.

Around a destroyed planet that's name is forgotten, 5 cruisers of the Federation were engaged by forces of the Klingon Empire. They knew we would engage if they moved into the area, and we did so gladly. The black of space is a playground dear to us for it is filled with nearly insurmountable threats that are used to create new glorious legends.

I commanded the Neg'var cruiser TonKa at that time. A target was chosen and the order to engage was given. The TonKa came out of cloak with weapons blazing at my order. I found myself alone scant kilometers from 5 capital ships ready for a fight with only one target, me.

The TonKa was outfitted with quadruple layered nuetronium so that it could stand up to a tremendous amount of punishment If it's shields were breached. With my officers and crew using every trick they knew to preserve our ship, we fought. 30 minutes later (or was it only seconds?) the rest of the Klingon force erupted from the shadows with such violence that I am sure the humans thought they had encountered some sort of calamity of nature! They also aided the TonKa with repairs.

Star Fleet lost a cruiser! Then another! The TonKa was filled with smoke and fire, casualties lay where they fell by the hundreds. Every ship is precious and an unnecessary loss is stupid not honorable. I looked for an escape vector. In seconds the TonKa was facing against the route of travel of it's remaining foes. Emergency power was shifted to engines and evasive maneuvers were ordered.

The TonKa cleared the field of battle with 0% hull. I had 87 hull remaining when I looked. I was fumbling to take a screen shot when the first defeated cruiser started to approach. I used my newly recharged hull and shield heals and cloaked before he got in range. Seeing 0% and not being dead was a moment I won't forget soon.

I've had many great saves from 3,4-1 chases thanks to the doughnut shaped rocks in the asteroid PVP zone. Love those things. One in particular comes to mind while I was being chased by some BOPs in my Galaxy R, made it through the hole and filled it with warp plasma as I went through. One BOP made it through just in time for me to do a maxed out phaser burst followed by a tri-cobalt torpedo. BOOM!

I've also run in PvP with 0% hull - and no shields, since I was under cloak. Just waiting for a lone torpedo to come sailing after me...

Situations like this is when I really hate plasma fires.
