(21:25:58) NAV_Cdr_Harper: *Sharks* Sharks, Firefly. We are go for launch. Our primary mission is to cover the evacuating shuttles and ships. Good hunting!

(21:29:43) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: A squadron of Tzenkethi raiders break off for the main formation and move towards the station, swinging low to intercept the escaping ships and pods.
(21:30:12) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Chaka: Even so, I will endeavour to return in mostly one piece. :: lifts an eyebrow in the privacy of her cockpit and allows a small smirk ::

(21:32:45) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: The Tzenkethi close on the gathered Federation ships around the Atlantis, a little rattled by the three-headed spear of the Galaxy-class Seleya, Ambassador-class Scarecrow and Sovereign-class Sentinel cutting through the middle.

(21:38:34) OPS_Lt_Baudin: @*VAdm*: Thank you, sir. NAV: Stay in formation. Do not break until we are through.
(21:38:36) VAdmBlackthorne: :: based on T'Kirr's attack pattern, he aligns Atlantis for better shots in between dodges and weaves ::

(21:38:48) VAdmBlackthorne: CSO: That's what you get when you name a ship after New Jersey.
(21:39:03) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: The Atlantis' fighters streak through debris and quickly dissipating plasma fire as they blow away a few of the Tzenkethi raiders, the first wave of escape pods swiftly and safely moving out of the combat zone.
(21:39:10) NAV_Lt_Marcus: OPS: Im holding, but I dont know how long the Seleya is gonna last sir

(21:39:23) CEO_LtQuinn: Chaka> Sharks:: Do you think they fail to realize, or just care that using all this firepower to try and kill civilians instead of the capital ships tearing their buddies apart is a crap strategy?
(21:39:25) CSO_Lt_Wright: :: blinks at the Admiral, not sure if she gets the joke ::
(21:40:00) NAV_Cdr_Harper: *Sharks* Looks like the first wave is safely away. I wish I knew why they would target the civilians, but we can not let them succeed.
(21:40:18) CEO_LtQuinn: Chaka> :: Nails the stabilizer of his latest target, causing it to list wildly. Zooming past it, he finishes the job with a rear firing phaser burst that incinerates its cockpit. ::
(21:40:26) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Chaka: I believe that they are under the impression that numbers give them an advantage. :: targets another enemy fighter ::
(21:40:33) VAdmBlackthorne: CSO: This position is too tenuous to hold. Status on the evacuation?

(21:40:58) OPS_Lt_Baudin: @NAV: Hopefully we will make it easier on them. *VAdm*: Do not get too close; we have some mighty...powerful torpoedoes we are about to try. ::nods at Hamlet:: They are likely to cause a big hole in the enemy forces.
(21:41:11) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: The first wave of evacuation vessels is away.

(21:42:24) NAV_Cdr_Harper: *Sharks* I do not think they will give up when the second wave launches. Be ready.
(21:43:00) NAV_Lt_Marcus: OPS: Sir shouldnt we tell the fighters to steer clear before we fire?
(21:43:03) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: runs a quick systems check of the fighter to make sure it's still good to go ::

(21:43:28) CSO_Lt_Wright: *Starbase* Atlantis to Starbase. We have an incoming wave of Tzenkethi that will be arriving in a few minutes. I suggest you launch your next wave as quickly as possible and then sit tight until we clean up a little bit out here.
(21:43:36) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: @SCI_LtJG_Hamlet> NAV: Well I'd bledy recommend it.
(21:43:41) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smirks at the flyswat ::
(21:44:22) OPS_Lt_Baudin: @*VAdm*: Tell the fighters to steer clear of our path. No sense in letting them get caught up inadvertently.
(21:44:23) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: @::slams the comms button, staring at the scorched remains of her OPS officer:: *Atlantis*: Understood, Admiral. We're taking a pounding, but the shields are holding for now. The next wave are heading out. ::slams her fist on the console::

(21:46:39) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: Almost on queue, a large wave of Tzenkethi vessels drop out of warp a little way from the station, the huge bulk of the carrier parting to let out a screaming swarm of smaller, lightly armed but very fast fighters backed up by the heavier Tzenkethi raider ships. They advance on the station.
(21:46:43) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Looks up at the lieutenant and nods.:: CEO: Got it.

(21:49:32) OPS_Lt_Baudin: @NAV: When that freighter is down, make sure the Seleya gets clear and turn us toward the station proper. They cannot fight off all those fighters.

(21:49:51) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: @SCI_LtJG_Hamlet> ::Sees the opening:: OPS: Firing!
(21:50:27) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: The Atlantis turns beautifully through space, her forward turret tracking the heavy Frigate and spitting out three glowing blue torpedoes. They streak through space, the first crashing against the Tzenkethi shields in a golden haze, the second smashing straight through her hull taking lizards and deckplates with it while the third explodes somewhere in the middle leaving it a
(21:50:27) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis starts to shake more often as the battlefield gets more crowded with weapons fire, and thus, more of it hits us.

(21:53:26) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Feels the shake under his feet. Takes a deep breath::
(21:53:33) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: The Sentinel launches her torpedo at the cloud of Tzenkethi debris, the glowing ball of destruction hitting a raider along the way and smashing it to bits with Kinetic force alone before it explodes, the very fabric of subspace rippling with the effects as it leaves a wake of devestated ships in its path.

(21:54:53) XO_Cdr_TKirr: :: can't help but marvel at the destruction read from her Tactical panel for a moment ::
(21:54:55) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: The next wave of fighters sweeps over the squadron from the Atlantis, hails of golden disruptor fire glancing off shields, catching a handful of escape pods in the destructive rain and sending a Type 8 shuttle spinning out of control.

(22:01:10) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: The Tzenkethi carrier hangs back, fighters streaming out the bay doors at the front while those handful of heavy frigates begin to move on the Federation fleet, the bulky ships looking terrifying in the light of explosions.
(22:01:21) OPS_Lt_Baudin: @CSO: Which we have little of right now. Aloud: Make sure those evacs don't get hit. I do not want to see a single one of these Tzenkethi land a hit as long as we are around to fight them back.

(22:03:01) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: Two minutes until the USS Monmouth arrives. Shall I fill them in on the situation?
(22:03:04) NAV_Cdr_Harper: *Sharks* It is not much of a threat to the evacuating ships, but its fighters are the immediate problem.
(22:03:24) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Outside holodeck one, it resembles some cross between botched surgery and a hectic move as removed access hatches litter the floor and bulky black cabling snake from holodeck one's generator to the nearest EPS tap.

(22:03:28) VAdmBlackthorne: CSO: Yes.
(22:03:34) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: A squadron of Tzenkethi fighters break off and surround three heavy Tzenkethi raiders that charge in at ludicrous speeds straight towards the USS Iwo Jima.
(22:03:35) MED_Ens_Slade: ALOUD: Send them into Surgical bay 1 :: As he examines a massivly burned starbase crew member with a piece of bulckhead sticking out of his abdomen::

(22:06:03) CEO_LtQuinn: Chaka> Sharks:: I hereby submit that anyone who comes back with their shields charged better tell me why.
(22:06:25) NAV_Cdr_Harper: *Sharks* Looking at mine, I doubt that anyone could find a reason.

(22:07:42) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: Two of the frigates close to disruptor range, a barrage of golden fire streaming towards the gathered Federation ships, smashing against shields and sending them all rocking.
(22:07:47) VAdmBlackthorne: :: brings Atlantis to bear on a perpendicular intercet ::
(22:07:58) CEO_LtQuinn: Chaka> And with that, he makes best speed toward the Iwo Jima. He takes two in the kisser from Tzenkethi fighters, punches right back, and keeps on going. ::
(22:08:07) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Chaka: I'll cover you. Go. :: blows another fighter to hell. ::
(22:08:08) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: The other four frigates begin to launch plasma torpedoes, keeping back and pumelling the Starfleet ships.

(22:09:18) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: @SCI_LtJG_Hamlet> ALL: FIRING!!!! ::Presses the button and prays.::
(22:09:19) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: One of the Tzenkethi raiders gets shredded by Mustang fire, the second smashing into the Iwo Jima's shields and sending her twisting through space just as the third crashes into the hull, the wedge shaped ship digging into the bulkhead, folding them in just right to create a seal for her bulkhead to open and armoured Tzenkethi to stream out into the ship's corridors.
(22:09:24) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: keeps up the unpredictable flight in the middle of the fracas, but knows this can't last much longer ::
(22:09:57) XO_Cdr_TKirr: CO: Pull up right on the axis and I'll take out approximately sixty-five percent of them in one run.

(22:10:55) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: Sir, the Iwo Jima has been boarded!

(22:11:49) CSO_Lt_Wright: :: signals the Iwo Jima that help is on the way ::
(22:12:12) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: The Tricobalt-tipped Quantum torpedo wings its way towards the Tzenkethi carrier in slow motion, the bay doors beginning to close as the torpedo is inbound. It happens too late and the torpedo slips inside like a football rolling past the goalies legs just as the doors close. There's a brief moment, then a collossal explosion rips the carrier to pieces from the inside out.
(22:12:15) CMO_Dr_Tav: :: after seeing that the worst-off patient has been stabilized, moves from patient to patient, seeing who is quickly able to be stabilized, and who needs more work. ::
(22:12:25) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: *CEO*: Good, because some serious shit is being fired outside.
(22:12:51) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: The Iwo Jima hangs limply in space, the Tzenkethi raider jutting out the side like a leech. Other Tzenkethi raiders begin to make similar runs at other ships.
(22:13:08) SCI_LtJG_TLira: *Sharks* It seems we have cause for celebration. :: fires phasers at a particularly persistent fighter riding close on her tail and tries not to cheer aloud ::

(22:13:49) OPS_Lt_Baudin: @NAV: Celebrate later. Turn us around, double time, and protect those evacs and our own ships.
(22:14:05) XO_Cdr_TKirr: :: puts over half of the enemy fighters closest to Atlantis' center line into her targeting sensors and sets the phasers into quick-firing arcs, the computer plotting their courses and automatically to hit as many targets as possible, and little explosions follow, including the one on Iwo Jima's hull ::
(22:14:05) CSO_Lt_Wright: Admiral, the good news is that the Sentinel has destroyed the carrier. The bad news is other raiders are making runs at other ships like they did to the Iwo Jima.
(22:14:25) VAdmBlackthorne: CSO: Status of the evacuation?
(22:14:39) NAV_Lt_Marcus: OPS: Aye sir coming about now :: Turns the ship around and starts barreling through raiders that are going towards the evac ships::
(22:14:45) sCO_Cmdr_Lexington: ACTION: The Cavalry arrives, the USS Monmouth dropping out of warp with five other Federation ships, immediately on top of the Tzenkethi frigates as they start pounding them with a hail of torpedoes and phaser fire.
(22:14:59) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: @SCI_LtJG_Hamlet> ::Starts targetting any ships he can.::
(22:15:06) CEO_LtQuinn: Ilaihr:: The Admiral's flying, with the Sharks out, and he knows his craft. Try easing up a little on sections that he's turned away from the brunt of it.
(22:15:17) VAdmBlackthorne: :: lets out a breath he'd been holding when the cavalry arrives ::
(22:15:39) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: Shuttles are all away, the last pods are existing the system. Starbase 621 is evacuated.
(22:15:40) OPS_Lt_Baudin: @NAV: Put us in between if you have to, just do NOT allow the others to get boarded. Looks like we have some help...so hopefully will not be necessary.
(22:16:03) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: notices the reinforcements, but she's still in the middle of one of those cartoon fights that just have arms and legs protruding from a ball of smoke ::
(22:16:42) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: *CEO*: Sir... the Sentinel is firing tricobalt devices. They just took the enemy carrier.... The big guns are out.
