[PPW] CubeJackal vs. Agent - In Space, Nobody Can Hear You Explode

[Image: GUPI2Y0.png]

Save for the ever-present beeps and bloops of various consoles, the bridge of the VMS Phobos was much more silent than usual. Rear Admiral Jervis Jenkins drummed his fingers quietly on the back of his radar officer's chair, both he and the officer occupying the chair anxiously awaiting any sign of hostile contacts. Nobody in the room dared to speak, as though doing so would cause some kind of strategic disaster. Technicians tapped at their consoles quietly and rapidly. The atmosphere in the bridge was growing tenser by the minute, and with good reason.

The Rear Admiral's flagship, along with its sister ship VMS Deimos, had been attached to the 47th Destroyer Flotilla in order to intercept what was expected to be a large enemy fleet attempting to punch straight through the Vargean space frontier. Conveniently for the defending fleet, the hostile force was expected to emerge from FTL speeds in the immediate vicinity of the CR12A asteroid mining outpost, a quiet backwater sitting just outside Vargean borders. The hostiles would likely want to capture the outpost for its large gold reserves - a truly universal currency - and potentially any fuel or prisoners, if applicable. It was the job of the two combined flotillas to prevent this.

Presently on the field, a pair of frigates finish rounding up stray mining corvettes and herd them to the safety of the station's defensive guns. The twin battleships and their cruiser escorts hang back while the four destroyer groups patrol the surrounding asteroids, attempting to find convenient places to hide themselves in and potentially flank the enemy. For the most part, however, the defenders play the waiting game.

The 403 Space Assault Control Ship emerges, still going quite fast. It just disengaged it's FTL engines, and all the crew rapidly unbuckle and rush to their stations. One of the support vessels fires it's front railguns into the asteroid, so it won't ram into it, crushing the front of the ship.

The Control Ship, Sharpened Blade, begins tracking the hostile ships closest to it. Weapon technicians prepare the long range railgun, using modified settings for their deadly first attack. They are increasing the velocity at which it's fired, hoping to cause it to go right through it's target. However, this will increase the time for cooldown.

The United Skvesh Empire is in need of gold, mostly for economy purposes. They were informed by an ally that this sector had large stocks of it... And a fleet of hostiles to keep them entertained. So they have prepared a fleet to clear the area.

((Moar ships on da way!!! This is only your greeting party Plbbbfft))

The less-than-subtle entrance of the enemy fleet is the moment that Jenkins had been waiting for. Immediately, all four destroyer groups begin moving to engage the newly-arrived ships, with the nearest of the whole bunch attempting to fire off a laser shot. The shot flies a little wide and burns a neat hole into a nearby asteroid. Meanwhile, the Deimos and its escorts power up their engines and begin slowly rolling towards the imminent fray, with the two cruisers splitting up in order to flank around the asteroid ahead of them.

The Support Vessel goes through the hole it just made, and targets the lower ship. One of the combat vessels target the one in front of it, but holds it's fire until it can get closer. The Sharpened Blade veers upwards, through the gap in the two asteroids. The railgun is done it's preparations, and the weapon technicians are on standby.

A storage vessel glides into the area, and unleashes it's cargo: A fleet of fighters. They spread like a swarm of ants, and target the ships below (?) them. After the first wave of the fighters, three bombers emerge, and fly in the direction of the asteroid base, in formation.

((I noticed my last turn that the asteroid is a bit pixelated, I'm trying to fix it for you :smug:))

I count three mate, you been drinking?

I do like your laser effects though, pretty.
