Assignment as Ambassador to the First Order had pushed Claire into different regions of First Order space. She saw reformation and need. Currently Claire was on a diplomatic mission to Bakura on behalf of the Coalition. Bakura was in First Order space she had entered First Order space without incident and had left there without incident. She would talk to the First Order about what the Coalition could do.
Now just hours out of FO space they were under attack by pirates. They seemed to be waiting for any ship leaving First Order controlled space. Claire just happen to be the next one to leave. They caught them off guard firing on them and hammering them until the only thing left maneuvering ability and minimal speed. Enough if they could get free to get to an Alliance planet.
"No YOU don't understand I am on a diplomatic mission" Before she had even finished the sentence two more volleys of laser fire had come in across the bow. She stared out trying to figure out what kind of ship was it, the markings were too faint and the ID beacon false.
"Mam, our shields won't take much more and we can't outrun them." It seemed the other ship even though to Claire's untrained eye looked about even it moved easier, and faster.
"Isn't there anything we can do?" The Pilot was trying to maneuver them away from the attacker, "Mam if you can talk to them just for a bit longer" Claire nodded, "you think you can get us out of here?" The pilot gave her a wary smile, "going to try Mam."
Claire opened the com, "I am the Ambassador from the Free World Coalition on a diplomatic mission to Bakura."
The response came quick, "LIES you are a First Order lackey and we will not tolerate your lies" Claire shook her head she could hear it in the man's voice anger, pain he wasn't going to be listening anytime soon he wanted satisfaction.
Another shot left Claire's ship without the ability to maneuver, "Mam" The pilot shook his head whatever it was he had tried would not save them, no words were needed, "It's ok send the distress signal. Let's see who comes to help"
