Fire hit the Dragons hull for a moment, causing the ship to shake slightly, but it wasnt much of a blow.
Shields down to 98 percent, Ada reported.
The Dragon was now moving at full impulse, weaving in between the thousands of Vorkalai ships, destroying them left and right.
As with the last battle, thanks to the Britar ships, the battle didnt last long. How ever, Chriss spirits were down to a low. The Defense Base was destroyed.
Long range sensors indicate a fleet of a thousand Vorkalai ships heading for Hintaru 3, Perkins stated.
Chris sighed. Send fifty-thousand Britar ships after
them, Chris stated.
Captains Log: Supplemental
Now that the Vorkalai are using the worm hole, weve posted twenty thousand Bertaan ships at its opening, ordered to fire the instant they identify a Vorkalai ship coming through. Hopefully, thatll eliminate any more surprises the Vorkalai might have.
In four days, we are going to start advancing into
Vorkalai space. The rest of the Bertaan fleet has joined us, and
weve left about a third of their fleet in Hintaru space for
defense. This obviously is a unique war. Instead of us guarding a
front line, both sides are having major battles. How ever, the
Defense Base now has Weapons Platforms posted along the
front line, so we should be all right.
An accident could have been prevented, Chris stated solemnly to Sarah. We should have known they would use the worm hole.
Some how, their quarters seemed gloomier than it ever has been. Sarah wondered why
Dont blame yourself, Sarah stated. I wont blame you for it. She shrugged. Then again, I DID tell you not to let it happen again.
Chris looked at her and let out a quiet laugh. Are you going to give me a formal reprimand?
Sarah moved closer to Chris and said, As a matter of fact.
Chris raised an eye brow. I could have you demoted, delete your reprimand, and then reprimand you.
Sarah let out a small quiet laugh. I doubt youd do that.
Oh really, Chris asked. And how do you know that?
Sarah cocked her head to the left, smiled, then replied, Because you love me.
That doesnt seem to be stopping you, Chris said.
Sarah laughed, then just laid her head on his shoulder, closing her eyes. The last couple of weeks had been hard on them both.
But things werent about to get any easier. The crew would no doubt face more than what they had bargained for in this war. A bloody war was ahead.
As if it hasnt been bloody enough all ready, Chris thought to himself, leaning his head against Sarahs.
His last thought, of course, when he fell asleep, was of Sarah.
