PREVIOUSLY: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=Kuat+CollectionOPENING CRAWL: http://brorlandi.github.io/StarWarsIntroCreator/#!/AKTjy2VjkQBEpB9AEgU-“WHAT IN THE FIERFEK WAS THAT!?” The comms channel was screaming with panicking officers as ISD Tyranny suddenly was radically restructured into a cloud of debris. That Vong Princess was wielding enough firepower to wipe out an entire Star Destroyer with only glance. And that more or less spelled the end for any kind of cohesion in the Imperial Fleet.“Steady!” yells Admiral Reike. You look to the tactical map and watch as ships start breaking away out of formation towards the planet or out towards space, isolating themselves in attempts to save themselves. “We are stronger together, stay in formation!” The only strongpoint now left in the defense was around SSD Executor and Death Squadron, who were holding firm. But they represented only a third of the defense. Everything else was starting to panic.And what was worse was that the Princess was not done. She fired her staff again. This time it crashed into another Star Destroyer, splicing it half. “We just lost another Star Destroyer!” yells a tactical controller. “That Princess is ripping our Fleet apart!” More Starship Princesses enter the fray, along with more generic cruisers and corvettes to back them up. They were forcing a breach open at General Kalani’s position.Commander Kohlenkau examines the situation. “Sir. It appears the Vong are attempting to force General Kalani’s position open. If they do that, they’ll be in a position to flood Kuat with reinforcements and surround pockets of resistance in orbit. We can’t allow that to happen.”F4 rolls up. “We don’t have anything that can force them back though. The Admiral’s Starship Girl fleet isn’t big enough to stop the counterattack.”“Perhaps with Admiral Reike and the former Admiral Figuro-“ She blinks. “Why am I discussing strategy with a droid? Just have all the Fleets stop the offense there at that point, Admiral.”> “Have all Fleets converge on that position to stop the Vong.”> “We need to keep the Fleets divided to keep the rest of the defense from failing.”> “Forget this! Activate the hyperdrive, we’re getting the hell out of here!”> Other
>>1572847> “Have all Fleets converge on that position to stop the Vong.”
>>1572847>> “Have all Fleets converge on that position to stop the Vong.”
> “Have all Fleets converge on that position to stop the Vong.”“Have all Fleets converge on that position to stop them!” you order. “Drag them in there if you have to!”Prosecutor receives the order. “Girls! Into the breach!” She leads the Fleet formation down towards General Kalani and his broken and scattered forces. Following their lead from the other end is Admiral Reike’s Fleet led by Defiant. As for the former Admiral Figuroa, his Fleet is already engaged heavily in the fighting.“There’s so many!” yells Black Hawk.“Ha! Numbers ain’t nothing against us!” Force of Commerce shouts. “After ‘em, girls!” They start firing away, clearing away escort cruisers and corvettes.“The other Fleet is engaged, providing fire support!” Defiant commands. “Target the Star Destroyers!” Admiral Reike’s fleet forms a disciplined line, with the smaller corvettes forming a skirmish line below them. They fire a broadside against the incoming heavy Vong ships, forcing them to slow down and start evasive maneuvers. The battle is now joined.“Sir! The unknown Princess is closing in!” yells a technician. You look over to see the holomap. There the Princess, along with an escort of two Star Destroyer-class Vong ships, is moving in at your starboard side with no intentions of stopping.“Evasive action!” you shout. Your ship and your Father’s ship start pulling away in separate directions. Discretion is the better part of valor. You are not going to get vaporized by a Princess today, not after all you’ve been through! The Princess flies on through, with the escort coming in to engage you. “Deploy the TIE Fighter screen!” The Lucifuge starts shaking as it takes fire from one of the Star Destroyers. Your Father’s Interdictor-class Star Destroyer meanwhile has begun returning fire.Resolute calls out, “Push them back, we’ve slowed their advance!” You look back at the tactical map. The three fleets in that single area have now stopped the bleeding in Kalani’s line. Thank goodness but-The ship rumbles again. “We’ve been hit!” yells a technician. “Minor damage sustained!” Right, you’re also under attack now.Commander Kohlenkau calmly points something out. “More Vong reinforcements on the other side of the system, five Star Destroyer-class, two Cruiser-class.”“We have more Vong reinforcements pouring in!” says another Officer. “Sir, they have us outnumbered four to one!”> “Finally, it’s an even fight then!”> “Four to one!? It can’t be!”> “Right, don’t worry. We’re all calm. It’s not like things can get worse.”> Other
>>1573000>"Keep steady. If we panic now, we'll be easy pickings for the enemy."
>>1573000>Other>Stand fast, don't falter. HOLD THE LINE AND DEFEND KUAT>> “Finally, it’s an even fight then!”
>>1573000>> “Right, don’t worry. We’re all calm. It’s not like things can get worse.”
>>1573000> “Finally, it’s an even fight then!”
> “Finally, it’s an even fight then!”> Other“It’s an even fight then, finally!” Commander Kohlenkau and several of the other officers stare at you, apparently awed by your glee at the battle being even in your eyes. “Now keep steady, stand fast and don’t falter! We panic now, we’ll be easy pickings, we-““Sir! A message from Admiral Reike!” Oh? The comms officer puts it on. Admiral Reike’s hologram along with the hologram of Lord Vader, and several other Officers, including your Father, appear.“Admiral. I have a mission for you,” says Admiral Reike.“What is it?” you ask.Lord Vader says, “The Princess we captured must not fall back into enemy hands. She must be taken away from Kuat to the safety of the Core Systems at Coruscant.” Coruscant? They would risk her being kept there at the center of the Empire? “You and your Fleet must return to the station and retrieve her and escape.”“Wait.” You narrow your eyes. “You’re conceding defeat?” They’re silent for a moment. Except for one Officer, who screams as his ship blows up around him. His hologram fades away. “That can’t be! You’ve all said it, Kuat is the center of Imperial production! If we lose Kuat, we may lose this war! We can’t just give up!” The ship suddenly shakes as a squadron of Vong fighters flies by the ship. Okay, urge to give up rising. But you can’t visibly show it, not in front of Lord Vader! No, you have to at least put up a fight before you’re allowed to leave!Admiral Reike scratches his chins, reading you like a book. He turns to Lord Vader. “Lord Vader. He’s right. Kuat can’t just be given up without a fight.”“Your deaths will be pointless and will only serve to speed the Empire’s fall if you make a foolhardy last stand,” Lord Vader declares. “We will organize a retreat and save as many ships as we can. Death Squadron will create a safe corridor to evacuate civilian manufacturers first along with vital production assets. Then we will evacuate the military assets.” Lord Vader is giving up the fight? He’s… he has a good reason for it. Yet, this is completely new to you. You thought him invincible. “Are we understood, Admiral?”“Yes, my Lord,” you say.One of the Captains calls out. “We must begin the retreat! Before we are destroyed!” You take a deep breath. Then you remember the girls. Kuat is their home, where many of them were born. Losing this place would kill them.> “My Lord. Allow my fleet to be the rearguard.”> “We will evacuate with Lusankya as soon as practicable, my Lord.”> “We will not leave.”> Other

> “We will evacuate with Lusankya as soon as practicable, my Lord.”“Commander Kohlenkau.” She clicks her heels, saluting. “Prepare a shuttle to extract Lusankya. We will evacuate her as soon as practicable, my Lord.”“See to it that you do,” says Lord Vader. His hologram disappears. Death Squadron starts moving off to form a safe corridor of firepower and shields. The huge screen of TIEs all around it swarm off in different directions to ward away and drive off fighters and smaller ships. Even Lord Vader’s fleet of Starship Girls move with him, blasting apart cruisers and corvettes easily. That’s veteran ships for you.“Get us close to the station! Forget these guys!” you yell. “Helmsman, make it happen!”“Yes, sir!” yells the helmsman. The Lucifuge starts moving down back towards the ring.“I will ensure safe travel of the asset,” says Commander Kohlenkau. She hurries off the bridge, along with a contingent of Imperial navy troopers. Right, right. As for the girls…“They’re overwhelming us!” Redemption calls out in concern. “Corvettes, get behind us!” VP and Resolute form a screen next to Redemption. The corvettes will be ripped to pieces in the open by the ever increasing number of Vong ships. And in return the corvettes snipe and rip apart incoming bombers and fighter. Admiral Reike’s fleet comes in closer as well, the two formations almost merging into one.“Stay strong!” shouts Finalizer. “They will not take Kuat from us yet! Trust in the Dark Side!”“Will you shut up about the Dark Side!?” Force of Commerce shouts. She fires a shot at a corvette, blasting it apart.Tellstar fires off her laser cannons at incoming bombers. “We just need to hold out a little longer! We-““There!” Assessor points out the incoming Princess, the one with the Staff.“Fire on her, now!” Acheron shouts. Both Fleets fire down on the Princess, bringing to bear concussion missiles, turbolasers, and fighter screens down on target. Explosions impact and pound the Princess’s shields and body, but not one makes a definite mark. She continues on. “Oh dear. That didn’t work.” She levels her staff, preparing to fire.“Evade!” Everyone yells. The Starship Girls move off. And yet her target doesn’t move. Wait… The Redeemer! Admiral Reike’s flagship is in the line of fire!“Admiral Reike, evade!” you scream. “Evade!”“Evasive maneuver!” Admiral Reike’s flagship starts moving downwards. Too late! She fires.“No!” Defiant leaps in. You’re blinded by the ensuing explosion. All the girls are blown back by the shockwave.[1/2]
>>1573462[2/2]“Report!” Admiral Reike calls out. “What happened!?” You squint, looking outside. Defiant took the full blast of that laser. She falls through space, her clothes shredded, her kit smashed to pieces, her body bruised and bloodied. To your utter horror, she starts fading away into nothingness.> Admiral-… I’m so sorry- Don’t forget the Republic… or me.She disappears completely, gone into the void.> DEFIANT HAS BEEN SANK IN THE LINE OF DUTYThe Princess grimaces, then starts charging another blast. All the girls stand around in shock.> “Don’t just stand there, attack!”> “Run, run for your lives!”> “Come back, it’s too dangerous!”> Other
>>1573467> “Don’t just stand there, attack!”>KILL HER
>>1573467>> “Don’t just stand there, attack!”
>>1573467>> “Come back, it’s too dangerous!”Our objective is to get the princess and bug out. Getting our fleet killed isn't going to help with that.
>>1573467> “Don’t just stand there, attack!”Add something about avenging her, too. Turn despair into rage; We can't afford to have anyone off their game right now.>tfw you know it's gettin' real when Schteel starts killing characters
>>1573467> “Don’t just stand there, attack!”We won't be able to extract the Lusankya safely with Eclipse at our heels, we need to destroy or drive her off before we can complete our objective.
>>1573467>> “Don’t just stand there, attack!”Delay as much as possible but I'm not sure we will be able to hand it
> “Don’t just stand there, attack!”“Don’t just stand there, attack! That’s an order!”Prosecutor snaps out of it first. “Everyone, full power! Attack!” They refocus their weaponry and fire down on the Princess. The Princess’ shields once again hold firm, with little flashes of red against the blue honeycombs shielding. The Princess fires again. “Look out!” Everyone dodges away. Thankfully, the beam manages to miss pretty much everything in the battlefield. But that was a close call. “Keep up the fire!”Vigilance contacts the rest of Reike’s fleet. “Fleet! Form up! Dress the gap and provide fire support now!” Reike’s Fleet of Starship Girls forms into a loose square. They hang back behind your Fleet and fire at long range against her. Again, no serious damage. The shields she has are holding firm. What kind of Princess are you dealing with here!?“She’s too strong!” says Sundered Heart.“NOTHING’S TOO STRONG!” yells Profundity. “We just have to bash her harder!” The Princess levels her staff once again. “Uh oh.”“Evade!” Everyone splits out of formation. The Princess fires once more. Unfortunately, Reike’s fleet doesn’t move out of the way in time. One of Reike’s ships receives a glancing blow. Implacable. “Aaah!” Implacable is blown into space, critically damaged.“Implacable’s down! Fill her gap!” yells Vigilance. “Don’t let her through you!” While this battle happens, the Lucifuge is able to slip underneath the battle at large. This allows you to get close to the station and allow Commander Kohlenkau to retrieve Lusankya. You have to make this quick though. The longer this goes on, the more risk there is for your girls.The Princess withdraws her staff, glaring at all of the girls. She instead opens up her robes, revealing a massive array of guns, turbolaser cannons, and missile launchers. Resolute stares at her. “Oh. This will be good.” She fires away. The girls are blown back by a huge barrage of turbolaser fire. Ships directly behind the Starship Girls are ripped to pieces by stray shots and are destroyed, both Imperial and Vong alike.“THIS ISN’T FAIR!” screams Agility.“Stop whining!” yells Vigilance. She points at Hand of Justice. “You! Corvette! Escort the Admiral! Make sure our asset leaves safely.” Hand of Justice salutes, flying alongside you. “We will buy you as much time as we can, Admiral!”You bite down on your knuckle, then look back at the tactical map. More Vong reinforcements from hyperspace again. The bridge is alive with officers and technicians processing the information, keeping the ship going. F4 whirls his dome to you, rolling up to you. This is not the fight you wanted.Damn it.

>>1573820Holy shit things got real ECLIPSE IS FOR bad ends
>>1574015by bad end, you mean brutal murder via rapid vaporization by her weapons?
You close in at five kilometers with the station, good enough distance away to allow your shuttle to take over. Direct docking will take too long so it’s absolutely vital that your Lambda-class shuttle makes it to the station and gets Lusankya onboard before that Princess comes back. Flying across your bow now were dozens, if not hundreds of Gozanti-class freighters and Imperial Quasar-fire bulk cruisers. They were moving as much important material and as many factory personnel out of there as possible. Droids can always be replaced you figure, but the skilled labor from actual people? That can’t be replaced.Commander Kohlenkau calls you over the comms. “Admiral. The Doctor is preparing Lusankya for transit. We should be there and back to the ship within the span of fifteen minutes.” Fifteen minutes!? That’s a lifetime in the middle of a battle!“Tell him to hurry!” you order. “We don’t have much time out here!” A pair of Yuuzhan Vong fighters fly across your ship, harassing and prodding at the escaping civilian shuttles. “Get our TIEs to escort those ships out!”A bridge officer looks back to you. “Sir. Another update on the Starship Girls.” He updates the tactical map for you. The Super Princess as you will now refer to her is managing to solo two whole Fleets of Starship Girls. Defiant was sunk, Implacable is critically damaged and unfortunately can’t be recovered during the fight. Suddenly, one of Reike’s ships disappears.> “No, this can’t be-! I don’t want to…”> LIBERATOR HAS BEEN SANK IN THE LINE OF DUTYAnd what’s worse, the Princess’s backup is arriving in the form of two Star Destroyer-class Princess along with a dozen corvette-class ships. Damn it!“She’s too strong, we can’t hold her!” says Acheron.“We have to buy the Admiral time!” Prosecutor orders. “Keep firing!”Right, right. Now you play the waiting game.> Try and bolster your girls’ morale, tell them they’re doing a good job.

> “Commander, I’d like it if Lusankya was here NOW.”> Other“Prosecutor, start falling the girls back out towards my ship.”Prosecutor says, “But, sir!”“No buts,” you say. “Just do it. Slowest ships first.”“Slowest ships first!” says Agility. “Okay, Finalizer, go on!”“I am not slow!” Finalizer says. “Acheron is!”“Hey!” Acheron yells out. “… you’re absolutely right. Later, girls.”You hit up comms on Commander Kohlenkau. “Commander, I’d like it if Lusankya was here now! Tell her if she helps and is cooperative, I can make sure she gets a nightlight in her bedroom for all I care!” you shout.Commander Kohlenkau is quiet. “Um. Yes, sir.” It occurs to you that you probably didn’t properly brief Commander Kohlenkau on your relationship with Lusankya. That’s fine, everyone’s learning. The ship rumbles suddenly.“Sir, we have two cruiser-class ships moving to engage us,” says one of your tacticians.Hand of Justice calls you over comms. “I can ward them away from you, Admiral! I’m much faster than they are!”> “Stay with us, Justice.”> “Go on then. But be careful.”> Other

> “Stay with us, Justice.”> Other“Stay with us, Justice. Prosecutor, have the center line fall back, but the flanks hold position. We’ll form a crossfire down on them!”“Got it!” says Prosecutor. “VP, Resolute, Finalizer, Redemption, and Profundity will fall back!”Profundity shouts out, “Profundity does not fall back!” She’s hit by a turbolaser blast, blowing her back a bit. “Ow! Okay, falling back!” The center line of the formation starts to give way, which draws the attention of the Princess and her reinforcing ships. They start pouring into what they must think is a breach. But that allows the faster cruisers to flank around to the sides. And that means Assessor as well…“Assessor, do it!” orders Resolute.Assessor rubs her hands together, then casts a field of electric netting against the ships. They stop in place, the Princess is caught by it as well. “Now, fire!” says Assessor. Everyone focuses down another barrage, slaughtering the Princess’ reinforcements. They get sheared and blown apart by focused fire without even firing a shot. Yes, perfect!“Good job, girls!” you shout. “Excellent!”Vigilance calls out. “Fleet, more ships coming in!” More Yuuzhan Vong ships pour in from the edge of the system. How many ships do they have!? This isn’t fair!Suddenly, Commander Kohlenkau calls to you. “Admiral. We have Lusankya. We’re bringing her aboard the shuttle now!” Excellent. Excellent! Finally, some good news!“The station is under attack!” Scratch that. Yuuzhan Vong fighters and bombers spit fire and slag at Kuat’s ring of steel, shattering hangars and blowing apart factories all along it. One of the traffic controllers calls out to you. “We’re requesting assistance! We still haven’t evacuated all the ships yet! We can’t hold out much longer!” You look to the tactical map again. Death Squadron is busy. Admiral Reike is also busy. You’re the only ship in range that can help. But if Kuat is lost, there’s no point to helping the station.> Move to assist the station.> Stay back, wait for Commander Kohlenkau to come back.> Other

>>1576014>>1576018This, and keep up the pressure on the Princess.
> Other“Whatever fighters we have left, send them to deal with the station! We have to stay here!” you order. Your remaining TIE Fighters start moving in to try and relieve pressure off of the station. It won’t do much but it’s something. It may even allow more ships to escape as well.Another Star Destroyer gets blown up by a cruiser ramming full speed into it. Super Star Destroyer Executor is taking extensive damage as well as Starship Princesses and Yuuzhan Vong ships gang up on it. “Protect Lord Vader!” yells Devastator. Devastator commands the Death Squadron Fleet to continue the defense.“Sir, we have an incoming transmission from General Kalani!” says a comms officer. “Patching it through now!”General Kalani appears on hologram. “Admiral.”“General.” An explosion occurs off screen behind General Kalani, but he does not flinch. “What’s the situation?”“Critical. My Fleet is getting critically damaged, and I have already suffered five sunken ships,” he declares. “The engines to my flagship are destroyed as well. We are holding out as long as we can.”Lord Vader appears on hologram as well. “We have successfully evacuated most of the vital personnel from Kuat. We can begin making a general retreat from the system.”“There is a problem,” says General Kalani. “The Yuuzhan Vong are moving Interdictors in to create gravity wells around our defenses. We will not able to jump to hyperspace.” Damn! Force open our lines, then move in the Interdictors so that the rest can’t escape. Crafty little buggers. You fold your arms, sighing. “The only way we may be able to escape is if we can force open a small window in their gravity well line.”“That can be arranged.” Your Father appears onscreen. “The Interdictors have been slow to set up a gravity well field here.” The tactical map appears once again. Almost the entire system is Yuuzhan Vong red, with only a small bulge in the encroaching line. That is where he points. “I will take my Flagship and what’s left of my task force there and force a breach. Death Squadron and all remaining defensive ships can retreat through. Admiral.” He looks to you, sternly. “You must lead the retreat. Your Flagship will be carrying the asset. It is vital you return to Coruscant safely.”> “Very well. Good luck.”> “I will not leave Kuat!”> “At least allow me to serve as rearguard. Perhaps Lusankya can be transported aboard Executor?”> Other

>>1576162>“Very well. Good luck.”Well shit. Didn't know things would turn out like this.
> “Very well. Good luck.”You salute him. “Very well, good luck, Captain.”“Inform us when our corridor is open,” says Lord Vader. “We will hold out as long as we can.” You see a long gash be blown open on Executor’s hull. “We do not have much time.” Their holograms disappear, except for Father’s.You squint a little, smirking. “You think I’m stupid? Taking on an entire line of Interdictors along with their escort with just your Star Destroyer? You must be thinking it’s Scarif out here.” Father simply stares at you, arms folded. “What? Nothing to say?”“Boy, I am going to do something incredibly stupid, and I will do it because I love the Empire,” he states simply. You tilt your head. What’s he getting at? “And believe me, it won’t be the last time somebody does something this stupid anyway. Not until the Vong are defeated.” You see your Father’s Interdictor-class Star Destroyer fly past. His task force escort of corvettes lead him in. The Yuuzhan Vong Interdictors, along with a sizable escort of cruisers and heavy cruisers roll in to create an impenetrable gravity well.“What, are you going to surrender?” you ask. Your Father rolls his eyes. “You know, you always rode me hard for wanting glory and honor, and yet here you are rushing yourself into the fight like some kind of madman! Ha!” You snicker. He’s gone off his rocker. “Go on then, go be a hero. Try and relive the Clone Wars again.”“Son.” You blink. “Listen to me. I do not regret raising you the way I did. But I do regret I won’t see you become a better man than I.” His corvettes break off. “You have to realize you’re part of something greater than yourself now. That’s something you have to be willing to give your life and the lives of others for. Do you understand that?”> “I understand.”> “Why the dramatics?”> “Ah, you can sod off with that.”> Other
>>1576292> “I understand...and thanks Father. Good luck.”

>>1576292>> “Please you're so bull headed that you'll turn out alright but.....I understand."
>>1576292>> “I understand.”
> “I understand.”“I understand.” You nod slowly.He nods back. “Good. Glad we could talk. I’m proud of you.” What’s he on about? He can’t seriously be thinking of taking on the Vong alone with just his Star Destroyer? You see lots of shuttles retreat out of his hangars back to friendly ships. What the hell?“Sir!” A technician looks back to you. “That Interdictor Star Destroyer! It’s-… It’s overloading its gravity well generators!” No. No, it can’t be. He’s gotten a far enough distance away from friendly forces at this point. And the damage he takes from vanguard Vong ships is barely registering to his Star Destroyer. What is happening now though was that they were being drawn in on him. You step up to the bridge window.“Father, what are you doing!?” you yell.Father looks down for a second, then looks to you. There’s a lot you can see past the holographic distortion and the electric blue hue of his hologram. Things like regret, age, sadness. He says this, “Son. Save the Empire.” The nearby Vong ships, including two Interdictors and several cruisers are drawn into Father’s ship. No. No! They crash into his ship. One of the cruisers ruptures a gravity well generator. Another Interdictor smashes into his ship, exploding violently. You see sparks of lightning and clouds of dust shoot out from the massive collision. It all starts crumpling in on itself. You see more Vong ships get sucked in as well.Then finally, a massive explosion lights up the stars. You almost think for a second he’s somehow given birth to a star in that pileup.“Admiral…” Resolute is in horrified awe. “Your Father.”No. Instead he’s just sacrificed his life to open a hole big enough for Death Squadron and what remains of the Kuat defense fleet to escape.Damn it. You knew that old man was stupid. You step back, laughing a little. Absolutely plain stupid. “Admiral!” F4 calls out to you. “Commander Kohlenkau is arriving with the asset. We have to retreat!”Stupid.

Commander Kohlenkau arrives back on the bridge. She sharply salutes you. “Admiral, we have the asset in storage now and we are prepared to…” She sees you staring out the window. “… is everything alright, Admiral?”F4 rolls up to her. “His Father was on that Star Destroyer that just blew up.” Commander Kohlenkau gasps, then drops her salute.“My apologies, Admiral. I didn’t realize.” You look back at her. To be frank, she has a lot to catch up on anyway. You don’t blame her. Right now though, your Father has opened a way out for the Fleet to escape. It’s only a small one, and even smaller in terms of time as well. The Vong will be moving Interdictors in along with more ships as well to stop you all from escaping. This’ll be like Atollon to them. “What are your orders?”“Get to your station, Commander,” you say. She nods, hurrying off to begin coordinating efforts in the workpits. “What’s the situation?”“Sir.” One of your bridge officers updates the tactical map. “Admiral Reike is pulling his girls back to shield his flagship. Lord Vader and Death Squadron are making their escape now as well. But Executor is heavily damaged. We have received reports that Executor’s engines are only working to 50% capacity, and that number is dropping as more ships attack Lord Vader’s flagship.” Right. “Since we have the asset aboard, sir. It would be prudent if we were to begin our retreat now while we still can.”“Agreed,” says Commander Kohlenkau. “But we can’t make the jump to hyperspace where we are. We have to get some distance out.”“There’s another problem, sir,” says your bridge officer. He points out the Super Princess, still engaged in combat with your girls. Assessor is trying her best to contain her while the others open fire on her. But the Super Princess’ ranged weaponry along with shielding and pure armor is keeping her from being destroyed completely. She’s a tough one. “That Vong Princess is going to pursue us if we start making our retreat.”Prosecutor calls out to you over comms. “Admiral, allow us to stay behind and allow you to escape! We can rally with you at another time!”> “Forget that. Come back to me and cover the ship.”> “Very well. Do what you can.”> Other

>>1578572> “Forget that. Come back to me and cover the ship.”Retreat, counterattack, and repeat until either she stops pursuit or an opening presents itself.
> “Forget that. Come back to me and cover the ship.”“No! You’ll come back and cover the ship! We are leaving now!”“Yes, sir!” says Prosecutor. “Fleet, let’s move! Retreat!” The formation breaks in an orderly manner, forming a long line. Assessor is the second to last to go, with Finalizer covering her retreat. The Super Princess breaks free of the interdiction net then, and starts turning around to follow them. “It’s following us!”“Not for long!” says Finalizer. She releases a spread of her special TIE squadrons. The Super Princess simply swats them away without much of a fuss. “You fool! I was trained by the Admiral himself! Take this!” She fires a barrage of turbolaser and concussion missiles. The Super Princess stops and projects a shield to protect herself. She’s knocked back but not damaged at all. “You fight well, but not well enough!”“Finalizer, come back!” says Prosecutor. The Super Princess pulls away, heading away from you now.And right towards Death Squadron and Admiral Reike’s fleet. Oh no. “She’s headed towards us!” says Admiral Reike.“Stop her!” yells a Star Destroyer captain. The Super Princess shoots down a Tartan-class corvette out of the picture. An old Acclamator-II attempts to interpose itself between Admiral Reike and the Super Princess. But the Super Princess simply pulls her staff back out and charges another shot. “Evade, evade!” All ships start breaking left or right in different angles and directions. Too late, the Acclamator is shorn in two.“She’s going to destroy Admiral Reike’s fleet!” says Prosecutor.> Not if you can help it, send the girls to help.> You’re not risking it. Keep retreating.> Other
>>1578689>> You’re not risking it. Keep retreating.
>>1578689> Not if you can help it, send the girls to help.Rake her from the stern.
>>1578728> Rake her from the stern.
>>1578689>OtherWe could probably spare some fire support, but we also have our own job and going out of our way to cover Reike just distracts from that.What would make things easier is if Reike would have the courtesy to die already.
>>1578689>> Not if you can help it, send the girls to help.
>>1578735Rum, the bum and the lash.
>>1578689> You’re not risking it. Keep retreating but fire as we go.
> You’re not risking it. Keep retreating.“We’re not risking it. Stay in formation.” You point to the helmsman. “Full power!” The helmsman nods, then yells to the engineers to give him more power to the engineers. The Lucifuge speeds off as fast as it can. Your girls cover your ship, determined to save you. Several Star Destroyers have managed to get ahead and have already blown off into hyperspace.Meanwhile though… “Cover the Admiral!” yells Vigilance. “Don’t let her through!” Reike’s remaining Starship Girls form a defensive cordon around the Redeemer. The Super Princess fires another a laser blast. One of Reike’s Venators, Tranquility, speeds up and takes the blast with her body.“Aaah!” Tranquility is sunk immediately.> TRANQUILITY HAS BEEN SUNK IN THE LINE OF DUTY“Fill the gap!” screams Vigilance.“I can’t take this anymore!” Flurry breaks off in another direction. That triggers the other girls to start fleeing as well.“It’s hopeless, run for it!” yells one girl. “I don’t want to die! I don’t want to die!”“Come back, you cowards!” yells Admiral Reike. “They’ll pick you apart!” It’s too late for him to make any difference. As his fleet has now routed completely. Vong fighters and bombers start swarming all over them, with more ships moving as well.Hand of Justice, still escorting your ship, looks back. She immediately breaks off from your formation and flies back towards Admiral Reike’s ship. “Justice!” yells Tellstar. She starts flying back as well to follow her.“Tellstar! Come back!” Resolute shouts. Resolute stops in her tracks. “Tellstar!”> “Tellstar, come back! That’s an order!”> “Resolute, get her and bring her back!”> “Leave them, we need to go now!”> Other
>>1578875> “Tellstar, come back! That’s an order!”> “Resolute, get her and bring her back!”>Use our new ship that is an interdirector to hook Tellstar if Resolue is too slow?They are ALL getting beat when we get to safety for this.
>>1578875>OtherOrder Reike's girls to form up on us if they don't want to die.
>>1578875Do the whole capture thing here >>1578880 but also save as many of Reike's girls as we can like here >>1578919 but we can't risk being captured.
>>1578875>>1578919>>1578935This, its a shitty move but our mission is more important
>>1578909But, we have some room now.>>1578919this tbqh senpai
>>1578962"Shitty move" my ass. Even if they're just "tools" to Reike it's still his fault for taking such poor care of his tools, and if they've already been routed this is their chance to survive.
>>1578875>>1578919Fine this this, But get our girls back.
>>1578981But he doesn't deserve to die.
>>1579005He's kind of an asshole, I have zero sympathy.Also he's already lost control over his girls, because again he's an asshole. The man's already on his own, if he survives more power to him.
> OtherYou get your comms officer to patch you through to Reike’s Fleet. “Vigilance, any girls left in Reike’s fleet! I need you all to rally with me now! We are leaving! If you want to survive, you rally with my ship!”“Damn you, Admiral!” yells Admiral Reike. “You won’t take my ships from me!”“The battle’s lost!” you shout. “We have to leave!”“This is not a discussion you-“ You assume Admiral Reike wanted to say something else, but unfortunately he’s silenced by the loud explosion of ship getting blown apart by the Super Princess. The Redeemer is blown to kingdom come by her superlaser staff, shattering into hundreds of pieces. You step back, blinking. Oh no. Not him too. You shake your head. He-…“… he’s dead!” Vigilance cries out. “Retreat! Run! Everyone retreat!” The girls, what’s left of them, start forming back on you. Hand of Justice however simply stands there in shock. Tellstar grabs her from behind, pulling her away. A Victory-class Star Destroyer attempts to escape but is also caught by the superlaser blasts from the Super Princess. “We have to go now, now!”Tellstar whimpers. “Admiral! Why is this happening!?” She sobs over the radio. “What’s happening to Kuat!?”“Come on, we have to go! We have to go now!” Resolute takes Resolute and Tellstar’s hands and drags them along. You look at the tactical map again. With Admiral Reike’s fleet in disarray, you’ve gathered what survivors have rallied back with your Fleet. Lord Vader’s fleet however is lagging behind. “Sir!” The helmsman. “We’ve exited the battle! We’re being pursued by corvettes and light cruisers! Shall I make the jump to hyperspace?”Lord Vader himself appears on hologram. “Admiral.”“Lord Vader!” You turn to him, bowing to him. “Listen, I’ll divert my girls and we can-““That is not necessary,” he says. “My Fleet shall make a random jump and escape. The Executor is lost. As is Kuat.” It’s as if you’ve just been stabbed. That can’t be. What has the Empire done to deserve this!? “Admiral. Retreat to Coruscant. Tell the Emperor what has happened here. I will rally with you when I can.” He’s silent for a minute, then nods to you. “Good luck.” His hologram disappears.Commander Kohlenkau looks back to you. “Sir, the Super Princess is moving to pursue! We need to leave now!”“Sir! We gotta go!” yells the helmsman frightfully. “We gotta go now!”> Leave.> No, you’re staying to fight!> Other
>>1579108> Leave.With. Our. Girls.
>>1579108Retrieve the girls and retreat.
>>1579108> MAKE SURE THE GIRLS ON ONBOARD AND JUMP.>Once in hyperspace, go to them. Yell and hug.
>>1579108>LeaveWhere is Palpatine and his Byss fleet? What we really need is a force storm. Unless he sees the Vong as some sort of blessing in which the weak will be weeded out from this Dark Empire.
>>1579108>> Leave.RETREAT AND LEAVE
>>1572847>Fierfek>Start Wars: Republic Commando flashbacks
>>1579175Or leave and retreat. So long as both happen.>>1579124More pressing, take stock of who we have and what their conditions are.
> Leave.“Bring the girls in. We’re leaving.”The tactical control officer calls the girls in. “All Starship Girls, back into the hangar. Prepare for jump to hyperspace.” Your girls fly into the hangar, one by one. All of them are damaged quite badl, but for the most part they don’t let you know about it. You only find out now just by looking at them up close through the cameras on the ship. Out of Reike’s Fleet, only four have made it. Vigilance, Hand of Justice, Flurry, and Defender. The rest were not able to rally with you successfully, not after a rout like that. “Sir, all Starship Girls are aboard.”“Make the jump.”“Plotting course, making the jump to lightspeed!” The helmsman punches it. The stars stretch before you, and give way to hyperspace. All the crewmen breathe sighs of relief, hugging each other and declaring themselves lucky. They made it.But Kuat has fallen.You step back, chuckling a little. Your Father is dead. Admiral Daas Reike is dead. Most of the Kuat Defense Fleet is destroyed. Kuat is completely gone. Lord Vader and his SSD Executor is gone as well. And all you can show for it now was Lusankya.What's the Emperor going to think? What is the Empire going to do? Such a devastating blow. Such terrible shame. Your heart couldn't sink any lower than this.“Admiral?” Commander Kohlenkau looks to you. “Are you alright?”> “I’m fine. I Need to see my girls.”> “I just need a minute to myself.”> “I’m fine. Let’s make our course to Coruscant.”> Other
>>1579338>> “I’m fine. Let’s make our course to Coruscant.”
>>1579338>> “I’m fine. I Need to see my girls.”
>>1579338> “I just need a minute to myself.”ThenI Need to see my girls.Someone need to get spanked and hugged
>>1579338> “I’m fine. I Need to see my girls. Plot a course to Coruscant.”
>>1579338>“I’m fine. I Need to see my girls.”
>>1579338>"Plot course to Coruscant. I need to check my girls."
>>1579359>>1579371These. In particular what's left of Reike's fleet will be needing some support, they just suffered 80% casualties.
>>1579417Yeah, we need to check on them now, they can't be doing well with those losses. Let's check on them while we move. And our girls. And them also the crew? Maybe lusankya?Might as well check everyone on how they're doing after this happened.
> “I’m fine. I Need to see my girls.”“Get us to Coruscant,” you order. “I need to see my girls.” Commander Kohlenkau grimaces a little, then nods. She knows what’s going on. She steps up to the helmsman and relays your orders to him. And with that, you take F4 with you down to the lift.“Sir. For what it’s worth,” says F4. “I’m sorry for your Father.”“It doesn’t matter,” you mutter.“Very well.”--“Here.” Redemption lets the corvettes rest all over her. Their clothes are burnt and their skin is bruised and cut. Redemption slowly tips a canteen of water to Black Hawk’s mouth, letting her drink to keep her strength up. Doctors are tending to your other Starship Girls as well. Finalizer, Profundity, and VP are resting up with their backs to each other. Force of Commerce simply lies back on VP’s lap, her arms folded, a very moping expression on her face. Acheron and Assessor quietly chat with each other. Arc Hammer too simply sits back against the wall, eyes shut, maybe sleeping or perhaps just thinking. Prosecutor was resting back on Resolute’s chest, with Resolute sitting down on the floor.“Prosecutor.” You step up to the two of them. Prosecutor looks up at you, then stands up and salutes you. “You’re fine. Relax.”“Admiral.” She frowns deeply, rubbing her cheeks. “Admiral, I’m so sorry. We weren’t good enough. We couldn’t save Kuat.”“It’s not your fault,” you say.Resolute looks up at you, then stands up. “Admiral.” You turn your head to her. “How many ships escaped? Did Lord Vader or General Kalani make it free?” Your silence says it all. “... I see.”“Where’s Tellstar?” you ask.Resolute points down the hangar. There, Tellstar comforts a whimpering Hand of Justice. Justice is burying her face into Tellstar’s chest. Vigilance, Defender, and Flurry all crowd around each other, deeply depressed. Admiral Reike may not have been the best Admiral, but he was probably the closest thing they had to a parent. Damn it all.“Admiral.” Prosecutor balls up her fists, grinding her teeth. “We can’t let this happen again! We have to avenge Kuat and all the lives we lost!”> “We will come back, one day.”> “Save it. Anger will get us nowhere.”> “We’ll kill a thousand Vong for every Imperial life they took today.”> Other
>>1579681> “Save it. Anger will get us nowhere. If we rely on emotions, you will die to it.”>Call Tellstar over to you right away and yell at her for almost getting herself killed.Time to be harsh on the idiots.
>>1579681> “We will come back, one day.”>Hug her.
>>1579681>> “We will come back, one day.”
>>1579681>>1579711This but with sanctions>No ice cream for 1 month>No popsicles for 2 weeks>No headpats for 1 week>And you're going to be on a simulator battle with *insert any ship here* to tell not to break formation
>>1579681> “We will come back, one day.”
> “We will come back, one day.”> Other“We will come back, one day.” You quickly hug her. She hugs you back, sighing gratefully. “Don’t worry about it. We have to be patient. And we have to be calculating, okay?” Prosecutor nods, her face in your chest. “Good.” With that, you let go of Prosecutor. She takes a few seconds before she lets go of you as well. You look over to Tellstar. “Tellstar. Get over here. Now.” Tellstar blinks, then gently pushes Hand of Justice away. Vigilance takes Justice away, and all the survivors of Reike’s fleet look as Tellstar walks up to you. “Tellstar.”She looks down. “Admiral.”“I’m disappointed in you. You broke your formation and you almost got yourself killed,” you state firmly. “What do you have to say for yourself.”“I didn’t want Justice to die too,” she mutters. “I wanted to help her.” She sniffles, rubbing some tears out of her eyes. “Please don’t be mad at me, Admiral.”“I-“Resolute steps up. “Admiral. If you must punish someone, punish me.” Eh? You look to her. Resolute adjusts herself, looking to you. “I failed to retrieve her in good time. I wasn’t watching her like I should be.” Tellstar nervously looks away, rubbing her arm. “Please, Admiral. She was only trying to help a friend.”> “It’s my decision.” Hand Tellstar the punishment.> “Fine. Consider this a warning.”> “Alright then.” Hand Resolute the punishment.> Other
>>1579877>"Fine. Consider this a warning... And Tellstar, don't worry me like that again. Alright?"
>>1579877> " I didn't want us to lose Kaut, The men that died or my father. "> “It’s my decision.” Hand Tellstar the punishment.
>>1579877>"Fine. Consider this a warning... And Tellstar, don't worry me like that again. Alright?">Cuddle the shit out of the little ship>Make sure she knows you don't want to lose her or her sisters. So she has to stay in formation.
>>1579877>> “It’s my decision.” Hand Tellstar the punishment.Punishment is to manage the "new" girls.
>>1579877> “It’s my decision.” Hand Tellstar the punishment.>>1579755>Cuddle her like >>1579913 said
>>1579952>>1579913supporting for these
> “It’s my decision.” Hand Tellstar the punishment.> Other“It’s my decision,” you say. “Tellstar. Extra time in the simulators. No desserts for a few weeks either. And double duty expeditions.” Tellstar nods slowly, biting her lip. “You need to learn to maintain formation. You’re stronger together. I don’t want to lose either you or the others. Do you understand?”Tellstar nods slowly. “Yes, Admiral.” She sniffles a bit.“Good.” You kneel down to look Tellstar in the line. “Listen. Don’t worry me like that again. You got that?” Tellstar blinks, wiping some tears out of her eyes again. She nods again, snifling. “Alright.” You gently take her shoulders, then take her in a hug. “There, there.” Tellstar quietly sobs.Resolute looks down. She exchanges a look with Prosecutor briefly. The other ships are too tired, too demoralized to talk any more. What’s happened has happened. Everyone has lost someone. Your crewmen man the ship quietly, no longer full of energy. As far as you know, things have gone poorly for the Empire. Admiral Reike’s Fleet is gone. Admiral Figuroa’s Fleet is gone. General Kalani’s Fleet is gone. Lord Vader’s Fleet is missing. Dozens of ships are destroyed. Many Starship Girls were sank. And while your Fleet made it safely with zero losses and with Lusankya safely aboard, it’s hard to justify the cost.Especially not when your Father was among them. You hate him for doing something stupid like that. The Empire needed him. The Empire will always need dedicated men like him. And he just abandoned you like that. Ugh, idiot of a man.Tellstar pulls away, looking down at your knees. “Admiral.”“Yes?”“… I’m scared.”You take a deep breath.So are you.
