Among The Stars Part 3/3

Cause you're working
Building a mystery
Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you're working
Building a mystery
And choosing so carefully
Sarah McLachlan - Building a Mystery

Things got a bit quieter from there, and we began to wait at our positions again. A bit of a rumble came down the pipe about a tech one BC and Cruiser gang. Apparently the Legion of Death had decided to remove us from the gate. A raptor came into local and began to do recon from four hundred and fifty kilometers away. We watched him, and then watched as his gang began to descend on the system, all they saw were our two Drakes, and they landed a Vexor first, to encourage us to engage. Aleks wavered for only a moment before deciding to engage. At this point they outnumbered us Seven to five.

I decloaked and released a volley of torpedos into the Vexor. The Heavy Assault Missile Drakes had already pounded him, and my torps ripped the last of his structure away. A Rupture, Stabber, Ferox, Drake and Caracal all landed just as the Vexor died. The Raptor came down from his perch as well, and began to engage. They began to primary Mon, who was having trouble keeping up with the damage. Aleks called the Rupture as primary, and my torpedos didn't even make it in time before he was dead. Next up was the stabber, who died before I even managed to get him targeted.

At this point rogue drones appeared on the gate and began to gun for me. I warped out and back in, to what was effectively a mess. Mon and Aleks had just managed to break points with their energy neuts and Mon warped out with twenty seven percent structure. As I landed the Ferox was deep into armor, and another torpedo volley ripped into his structure. He lit up just as Mon landed again to apply the finishing touch.

The Raptor pilot reasoned that discretion was the better part of valor and warped away. Time to mop up. We turned our attention to the Drake that was left on the field. His passive fit was entirely unprepared for the volley damage our ships could deal, and again he died before my torps even arrived. That left us a Caracal. He was trying to run, but with a Rapier on him, it was only a matter of time before he died as well. We'd completely demolished the opposition and held the field.

"Alright, lets get this loot back to empire," Aleks said with a chuckle.
