"Ten forward torpedo launchers, six stern launchers, ten high yield ion canon – and regenerative shielding!" Ensign Samantha Kneal read aloud enviously from her sensor analysis of the Alexander, "Man, I have got to get myself one of those!"

"Don't worry, baby." Marna Accelera crooned, stroking the helm console lovingly. "She didn't mean that!"

"Captain d'Angelo!" The captain of the Alexander greeted from the main screen. "Commodore Bayne, ISS Alexander. Need a hand?"

Mykl swallowed. Not that he hadn't expected a battleship of the line to be commanded by a woman, just that he hadn't anticipated that she would be a pretty blonde in her late forties.

"Commodore." He greeted. "We could use a little help, actually!"

"We'll take Indomitable." She nodded. "You can have the rest!"

As the tactical display returned to the viewscreen, Mykl returned his attention to the task at hand.

"That was awfully generous of her." Blachart winked at him in a semi-sarcastic fashion. Mykl just shrugged. It made sense to him anyway. A battleship like the Alexander could make short work of the Indomitable – far easier than the poor, tired, Antarse – and as soon as they were done blasting the bejesus out of the last Corsair raiders, he was going to see to the Mordrake and her crew! The two ships formed up beside one another and made for the group of remaining Corsairs. Indomitable started laying a spread pattern torpedo assault as they began to close. Torpedoes and countermeasures buzzed between the two forces like angry bees as the battle reached its zenith. It was a crescendo of explosions and destruction – a festival of death!

Within another half-hour the Antares dispatched the last of the smaller black ships – and a trail of flames marked its path as it fell away into the atmosphere of Endicor. Now the end of the battle approached – the two active Terran wars

The bastards! They would pay a terrible price for their victory!

Turning into the torpedo magazine complex, Kilroy met two marines coming the other way. Cursing, he swung his sword and smashed the first one's head off at his shoulders, before firing his blaster into the face of the second. He had to move quickly! Time was running out! This part of the ship was where the main torpedo production plant was situated. This machine reproduced flawless copies of munitions using transmatter technology. Beautiful gleaming slam-torpedoes made to order – copied from the pattern stored in its memory bank, negating the need for warships to carry all their armament in a magazine like warships of old – but there were still quite a few here, on the belts that fed the launchers that fired from various parts of the ship. He could see about twenty here on the conveyor and above this complex, he knew, was Main Engineering... The star drive, reflex furnace, matter/anti-matter infusion plant, etcetera – all were close by. Perfect! He approached a torpedo, opened it and found the arming system. It took just a minute for the experienced to do what needed to be done. Then, satisfied, he picked up his sword, gave it an enthusiastic swing, growled – and left.
