"Everyone remain calm." urges the Chief. He nodds to you and motions to your headset. Before you can check in with the LT the sensor operator speaks up again.
"Some of the ships from Allied Houses are breaking formation. They're fleeing!"
"Dayton to all ships I... I uh... hold position! Stand by to recieve orders!"
You turn your head. "Chief do we have anything that could take out a ship like that?"
"If the ship was by itself it wouldnt stand a chance against our combined fleet but its not. Shit. Let me remember, ways to kill a superheavy. Okay one, Veckron Torpedo, almost impossible to get hold of and can only be fired from ships with a special launcher. Two, another superheavy, but there's barely any left in the Dominion and we cant build new ones. Three, SP torpedo spam, possible but would take time to organise. Four, Plasma weapon spam, useful to Republic fleets only. Five, wave after wave of conventional ships."
"That doesnt sound very promising." You reply.
"Just wait, they're really not that tough withouth their shields. They're more like mobile bombardment platforms than conventional ships. They're long and wide yes but the superstructure is only 300m top to bottom and most of their interior is empty space for cargo. If out fleet could get it's shields down on one side our starfighters might stand a chance at crippling it."
