Phoenix watched as the quartet of fighters swept past the bridges starboard viewport, Colonel Doyon had his flight in close formation as they gave chase to the final 'ugly' that was nothing short of hideously outmatched.
One of the Raider class Corvettes from the 'Narsil' group had been jumped by a group of bandits whilst making a sweep of the Devonti System, a minor and previously uninhabited system on the fleets current trajectory away from the Minos cluster. Fortunately the Hammer had been close behind and a quick jump brought its overwhelming firepower crashing down on the pirate band. Colonel Doyons Beta Squadron had been launched to deal with the squadron of uglies, mongrel fighters pieced together from an assortment of parts and had experienced little trouble with decimating the force leaving the Hammer itself to disable the slow and desperate escape of the pirates modified bulk freighter.
"Major Task, have Beta Squadron perform a covering action whilst troopers board the freighter," Phoenix wafted a hand in the Majors direction. "They may have intel on the area. Have Delta prepare for launch as well, I want the system swept for any other unexpected surprises before the main body of the fleet passes through the region."
