Phoenix leaned back in the Hammers Command chair and surveyed the bridge around him as it bustled with activity, several members of the bridge staff were gathered around consoles in the port crew pit observing the latest tactical reports whilst others reviewed sensor data ready for the ships reversion to real space.
It had been a fortnight since he'd taken command of the vessel and still he had yet to find where Captain Genie had stashed all the ale, or the code for Elwoods safe. This was not good he mused to himself, he'd have to ensure Lambda picked up some special missions once their current mission was completed.
"Sir," Lieutenant Guthword from the Flight Operations Office stood to attention "we've prepped Wing 1 for launch the moment we revert to real space. Gamma and Delta squadrons are being held in reserve as ordered but the remainder are all in their launch positions."
"Excellent work, have Major Task report to the bridge once the wing is away." The Hammer had been tasked with interdicting a small convoy of freighters carrying much needed supplies and information. This was a simple goal for a Star Destroyer but it was key that they were not permitted time to get off a distress signal.
"Sir, exit to real space in 30 seconds," Phoenix turned to face the panoramic bridge viewports, this was going to be fun.
