Mykl put his head down and ran still harder. A flurry of energy bolts and bullets whined past him, smashing sparks off the walls. There was another side corridor up ahead, tantalizingly close, but would he make it? His pursuers were after him again, running, shooting wild. Made it! He burst around the next corner – and rushed right into another corsair! Both were left writhing on the deck in pain! The others were close behind... Grimacing, Mykl grabbed his weapons off the deck, made for the corner, and turned and fired a few shots at his pursuers.

A Space Fleet Captain would make a valuable hostage… at least she hoped the Corsairs thought as much. "At least they're alive. Can you identify them?"
