Location: Back on board the Castan SD Technor
Objective: Provide air support to Alderaan and ally forces
"Affirmative...one escort fighter to transport..." She replied to the Tecknor's Commander.
Karlie was on board the Tecknor again and strategically coordinating Castan's aid to Alderaan by way of air support and humanitarian supplies.
Normally all that would be in the hands of the ship's commander. Only that this was more than an ally coming to the aid of a system that had come under a sith attack. The CIS had failed to arrive in time to avert the damage done on the civilian populations andit's major cities. This was now more of a diplomatic mission to right their wrong, than to help with the defenses. The main battle group of sith ships had already left the system. What remained were more suicide squads and pockets of sith soldier platoons. Their main objective was to impede ally help to Alderaan. But those pockets of sith suicide squads were spread out and like rats, had to be lured and flushed out.
"Commence sequential launches..." The Commander instructed his crew.
"Agent Lynn, should we send a few more squadrons down?"
If anything, recall Red Wing squadron and have them come in to cycle out Taff Squadron." Karlie replied, monitoring the lack of engagements since she boarded the Tecknor.
"Seems for the moment the air has thinned over Aldera.
We should have come flexing our might a week ago, Commander. Us buzzing the skies is futile, as there aren't enough engagements for your boys and girls down there. The two squadrons we just sent down following Red Wing is quite sufficient." she replied, not wanting to over do the display of assistance. Karlie wasn't one to show off. At this time, the skies were pretty much clear over the camps and Aldera.
"Agent Lynn...of the other planetary sectors still under conflict?" The ship's commander asked.
"They are doing fine...pretty well actually. It's their court, Commander.
But do send them a message that we are prepared to assist them if they wish us to.
Besides, it's no longer a conflict, but a mop job..." She replied.
Of course the likely chance of the other allied forces and even that of the Viceroy Derek Dib inviting them on their hunt was slim. the pickings were slim, as she could pick up on their long range tactical sensor arrays.
"Agent Lynn... supply transports are on their way.." Another officer informed her.
Karlie looked over to the Holo monitors and could see one of the first transports clearing the SD Tecknor and heading planet side...a fighter escorting it close behind.
"Good...keep them cycling...all the transports. And tag an already committed fighter not engaged to escort a transport ship."
"Why not launch more fighters?" She was asked.
"Daisy chain the ones already out there. If there is any signs of more hostile, then launch as required. We aren't here to perform an air show.
We fraked up in coming when they needed us most. With what transports we are to escort down and support...there are enough wings flapping out there already." She replied.
Sure enough, the other allies were doing well, and at this point Karlie could only see about doing what she came here to do and that was to assist without putting on a horse and pony show.
There were enough friendly forces down planet side and in orbit that were getting the job done. They didn't need to crowd each other.
