I found god on the corner of First and Amistad,
Where the west was all but won,
All alone, smoking his last cigarette,
I said where've you been,
He said ask anything
The Fray - You Found Me
"Wait what?" my puzzled voice spat out over the comms.
"Unfueled POS in wormhole space, full of ships. Two of them are manned, an Oneiros and a Raven," Nidia shot back, her voice brimming with pride.
"On my way," I said as I keyed Ruerotta into my Manticore's navigational computer.
"I'm heading out too," NOIR. CEO Alekseyev Karrde said as well, followed by a smattering of replies, all positive.
"Ok," Nidia said after a pause, "I'll be waiting at the wormhole entrance, let me know when you're in warp to me,"
"Already there Nidia," I said as I cleared the Ruerotta gate and began to warp to my fleetmate.
"Alright then, I'll go back through and make sure nothing's changed,"
I waited a few minutes as Nidia got back into position and our fleet assembled on the wormhole.
"Wait a minute, they unanchored a gun," Nidia said with a bit of bewilderment, "He's moving to the tower and it's all that's left anchored,"
"Damn good timing then," Aleks said with a chuckle.
"They... OK the tower is down," Nidia stopped for a second and continued, "Go through and warp to Nidia,"
I passed through the wormhole with a minimal sense of distortion. I didn't get sick, so that's a positive. I began my warp and smiled as I came down cloaked and forty kilometers from both enemy ships.
"Primary is that Oneiros, get a point on the Raven," Aleks called clearly as his ship landed.The Oneiros died fairly quickly
, as he was likely unprepared and we switched fire to the Raven quickly. His damage control crews put up a much better fight, but just as he entered structure he ejected and warped away.
"He's... he got out. The raven's empty!" I said as I shut my torpedo launchers down.
"Cease fire on that Raven!" Aleks said with another laugh.
"What've we got here Nidia?"
"Basilisk, Raven, Itty 4, a Raptor, one gun and a large tower,"
"Sweet. Nidia, you get the tower for spotting it," Aleks began, "Use the Itty 4 to scoop it up, the rest of you grab what you want and get home,"
In the end I managed to bring home a tech two fitted and rigged Raptor for my troubles.
