---- Hammer Bridge ----
Phoenix leant back in his command chair and surveyed the bridge. It had been hours since the Hammer had come to the aid of a corvette from the Narsil group, the pirates who they'd come across didn't stand a chance once the Hammer had entered the fray.
"Major Task, send my congratulations to Colonel Doyon and his squadron on a job well done and have Lambda launch to help with the mopping up."
"Yes sir, will you be wanting that noted in the official logs? I'll ensure they're entered in triplicate.." Task trailed on. Phoenix suppressed a sigh, the man was a stickler for paperwork and routine that would make the Imperial bureaucracy look agile. Rumour had it he'd risen this far on the back of red tape alone.

"Mopping up action?" Genie queried the order as it appeared on his datapadd, "there's barely anything out there!" Genie silently cursed, this was probably revenge for hiding the booze when the new Commodore arrived onboard the Hammer last month.
"Look on the brightside boss" said LCM Shub, "there will be plenty of time to dictate your memoirs whilst we patrol this largely empty patch of space."
He did have a point Genie mused.
"Alright Lambda, get to your ships and prep for launch."
Genie supressed a grin, little did anyone know he'd stashed the former COMs prized whiskey collection in his fighter. This would be a fun patrol.
