Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
Our joint Free Fleets-Starfleet ambush of the Xovul attack on the Free Fleets shipyard facility has met with initial success as we've managed to destroy one of their dreadnoughts, although the ground attack has been less decisive and one of our allied ships had to retreat. The battle rages on, both in orbit and on the ground, as the Xovul put up a fierce fight despite being heavily outnumbered.

NAV Lt Navarro 07-Jul-2021 22:28:19
