Location : Ord Cantrell, Aboard the Mandalorian Dreadnaught Never Again
Objective : Blast 'em some more!
The shoe was on the other foot, and the Yuuzhan Vong were recieiving the promised booting from the Mandalorian fleet. Flash held his reserve as the big ship boomed again and again from Coralskippers making doomed suicide runs on the shields. They could handle that.
A bridge officer reported, for the Admiral's benefit. Rerouting auxiliary power to shields.
Flash was unmoved. They could handle the fighters. He saw something on the tactical display that they might want to worry a little more about. A Vongese battleship. Smaller than the Never Again, but massive, a couple of kilometers long. A ram from that, they would not be able to shrug off.
The Captain must have seen it too. Never Again's long range turbolasers sought it out, but the battleship analog's dovin basals ate up the blasts like they were nothing. Flash began calling orders.
Reset forward starfighter defenses for long range dispersal fire. Prepare a time on target barrage with all primary weapons that will bear.
An officer asked a question. Including the Daedalus Cannon, sir?
Flash shook his head. No, not with that many coralskippers out there. If we power up the main gun, and they get a lucky hit, we could lose half the ship.
He looked back to the tactical display. Moments later the officer responded. All batteries standing by.
Flash smiled. Dovin basals can be tricked. Lots of low power shots, and time the heavy blasts for when their defensive singularities expire.
Secondaries, fire, stand by primaries on my mark. Never Again's railguns and particle beams, meant for smaller craft, blasted a torrent of fire towards the incoming Vongese battleship. As expected, the dovin basals sucked up the shots. Flash went for the kill.
NOW! Never Again's big guns spoke, and the dovin basals were unable to respond fast enough. The heavy barrage slammed into the battleship all at once, devastating the front quarter, and noticeably defacing the large organic ship.
Flash grinned. Fire at will. He said, unnecessarily. The Captain knew the game now, and Never Again's weapons began firing in far more effective patterns.
