Mission: The Zone
Location: Bridge USS Pacifica

ON:

~~~~Bridge USS Pacifica~~~~

No sooner had L\'Verrem shot out his warning about the 2 ships approaching
from the rear that the ship\'s proximity alarm sounded quickly confirming
what L\'Verrem had just said. Before Butterworth could issue any instructions
the ship shook as it came under attack from the rear, as the 2 two attacking
ships rushed past the Pacifica.

Kiland: Rear shields are down 20%

L\'Verrem: They are turning around for another pass.

Butterworth: Steady on course helm. Miss Kiland target the lead ship\'s
weapon systems full phasers and load torpedoe bays.

Kiland: Aye sir.

Butterworth didn\'t like the odds that they were facing at the current
moments as four ships were looking at being quite a handful. His first task
however was to ensure the safety of the remaining pilots who were still
incoming.

Polaris: How long before our fighters arrive?

Hart: There are another minute our sir.

Butterworth nodded his head as he studied the forward viewscreen, where he
watched as the 2 pirate ships began to move back towards the Pacifica on
their second attack run. L\'Verrem quickly confirmed what Butterworth was
seeing on the viewscreen as he waited for the ships to advance a bit
further.

Butterworth: Open fire.

Kiland: Aye sir.

There was a barrage of fire as the ships passed each other for the second
time. The entire ship shook under the impact of the attack, but everyone
managed to hold their grounds. The lights flickered slightly before
returning to full strength.

Polaris: Report?

Kiland: We hit them, the lead ship was received extensive damage to it\'s
forward weapon systems.

Polaris: What about us?

Hart: Shields holding at 60%, we\'ve received minor damage to the secondary
hull.

Butterworth: ;;looks to Cesarian;; Transfer auxiliary power to the shields
and standby to extend our shields around our fighters once they arrive.

OFF: Tag Bridge crew.
