Captain Lennox stood at the bridge window of the Tyrant watching The Minotaur, a Lictor Class Dungeon ship, pull away as the Interdictor Oradell pulled into position for the short jump outsystem to get The Bennu. Lennox had suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Phoenix Squadron, but now he would be responsible for their final demise . . .
The warm floor of Sativa Garden may be smelly and sticky with booze and other things a person would rather not think about, but it is a lot more welcoming than the frozen surroundings of the town or the hard metal surfaces of an Imperial Detention Cell. The locals seem accepting enough of the team members hiding there for the moment . . .
The team had been gone longer than anticipated and then Rath showed up unexpectedly stating he had sensed the ship and her crew were in great danger. Wolffe knew little of the force, but he suspected the kid was right and ordered the Bennu to ready for jump when The ISD Tyrant appeared accompanied by an Interdictor which created a gravity well preventing the use of hyperdrive. The fighters swarmed close to the capital ships to prevent attack by other fighters as the batteries of the large ships opened up. The Bennu couldn’t susrvive for long against the better armed Imperial ships . . .
