Above Leonis
A once-proud Colony.
Mon Feb 26 2049 (MD #125)

The Orion jumped to a location three light hours from Leonis and launched a single Raptor while everyone else sat in their tubes or on the flight deck, depending on what they are flying. The recon Raptor was sent simply to determine a closer fleet positioning from five light minutes out. The Raptor jumps back and Lukes comes back into their radios, broadcasting on open frequencies to the Wing, "Orion Actual, Suds. Contact single Skath carrier group at the estimated coordinates over Leonis. Bandits number three squadrons in space. Electronic noise indicates one carrier, two cruisers, and three frigates. Transports moving among the fleet and carrier. Signals indicate two carrier groups on the other side of the planet, numbers unknown, over."

"Copy, Suds. Return. Jumping in three minutes."

The Raptor returns and lands, unarmed. There's no time to arm her, either. Every other Raptor is either armed with nuclear missiles or bombs to throw like unguided torpedos. The Vipers sit in their tubes with full missile racks. The countdown commences. Sixty seconds. Thirty seconds. Ten. The Viper pilots see the tubes open in front of them, launch controllers directing the pilots to run up their engines for launch. The Air Boss radios for all Raptors to prepare to launch.

Three.

Two.

One.

There's a flash across their canopy glass, a few seconds passing, and the order goes out, "Location confirmed. Launch all aircraft. Confirm engagement, you are Red Free. Kill 'em as you see 'em." Across the Viper tubes, a very practiced sequence begins with Vipers being shot out at predesignated intervals. It couldn't have happened more prepared if it were a sim.

[Into the Wireless] Niko comes over the wireless, reviewing the mission briefing one more time as everyone waits in their seats for the Orion to jump. "Wing, this Scythe. We've done this before and we'll do it again. Stick to the brief and take care of business: As soon as Orion is in Leonis orbit we are out the door. Vipers clear the road, Raptors kill us a carrier. Everyone back to the barn after the nukes are away or on call from Orion Actual. Vogue is Viper Lead, Nyx is Raptor Lead. Let's show the people on Leonis they're not alone down there."

With his brief recap and pep talk delivered, Niko tightens his harness and waits for the signal to launch. And then there's a rush of acceleration down the tube and out into space. Time to form up with the Vipers. Time for some long overdue payback!

Flexing her hands once last time, Wrecker takes a slow breath, tunes out the thoughts that are background noise inside her head, then exhales that same breath in a slow count just as the count down starts to get to the single digits. Her head tips subtly inside her helmet while listening to the CAG on the tactical channel, and for a moment there's a brief - fierce - grin on the pilots face. Her shoulders move side to side in a brief dance then the viper rockets out of the launch tube and into formation with the rest of the wing, reminding herself to fly smart, agile and alert.

[Into the Wireless] Bennett says, "Nyx copies, Scythe. Launching and falling back until we have a path."

Waiting in his Viper until the jump is done, and the launch is happening, Scott lets out a bit of a breath as he launches. Rolling the Viper a bit as it's clear of the ship, he moves to form up with the other Vipers. "Showtime…" he mutters to himself as he glances around, then to the instruments.

Bennett's engines are already running at low idle, and as soon as word is given to launch, she peels the bus off the flight deck and skims off into the black to form up with the rest of the wing. "Well," she tells her backseater with a flash of a smile behind her helmet's faceplate, "let's do this."

There is plenty of time for preflight checks and radio checks while they wait in the tubes for the Orion to jump. Once they are green to go, the vipers are fired up and begin launching in orderly fashion, spat out into space to take up the lead formation. 'Vogue' sits quietly and meditates in silence while the finale preparations come together, then Bloodfeather brings his focus back to here and now. Idris' mind is cleared of thoughts concerning having been shot down over Calumet ad various other close calls he's had. Soon as he's out of the tubes he sees Leonis and the Skath ships against the backdrop of diamond stars over black velvet darkness.

Casey is in the backseat of the Raptor Lead again. Even through change overs in the squad, but she doesn't seem to mind one bit. Life is precious and the boss is the most experienced pilot. Casey hasn't seemed too concerned about safety outside of having customized her survival gear after being downed on Calumet. "Take us out boss," she says with a little smile as she fires up the last few systems. "Ready to go."

[Into the Wireless] Idris says, "Vipers, Vogue. Pollux, form up on Scythe, Diaz on me. Then let's head in full throttle and make a hole, over."

Rolling out and heading over the ship, the Orion and a Heavy Cruiser are already turned slightly broadside and down as they begin engagement. While the Vipers and Raptors discharge over the ships, they can aready see every single gun firing. They can't hear or feel them, but the guns flash across the dark hulls with savage alacrity. So many people aboard have been waiting for this moment, not least the gunnery teams on each ship. Full battery fire has commences and the huge shells are already sailing towards downloaded targets. On dradis the groups can see the three squadrons out there and each of the identified ships. The Raiders are only now just starting to turn and engage while the Skath ships have not even come to readiness.

Beyond the ships everyone can see Leonis. It looks as beautiful as before, but the cities are gone from the surface. They are over daylight on the planet, the sun at their backs, but in the dark shadow they can see there are no lights. Down below, nobody will have any clue about what's happened until those nukes start detonating. Its beautiful to see and consider. Those black shapes silhouetted against the green and blue orb. The smaller contacts look like clouds turning on them.

[Into the Wireless] Diaz says, "Vogue, Wrecker. Copy that, lets clear the road, over."

Sparing only a brief glance for the pale disc of Leonis that takes up much of her windscreen, Bennett immediately gets to work double-checking missile systems and calculating trajectories. "I am going to try to keep us behind viper cover. It may get bumpy." That's her standard warning, issued at times like these.

The sight of Leonis below is a momentary distraction for Niko — how long has it been since he's seen the Colonies? Months for him, decades for everyone he left behind. A beautiful refuge of life in the cold vastness of space that's been stained by the Skath. Time to clean house. Scythe angles his Viper across the back of the formation, checking everyone's position and then the Skath on DRADIS. So far, so good.

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Vogue, Scythe. Roger that. Pollux, you've got the lead, forming on your seven now."

Scott nods as he hears the message over the comms, moving to form up as instructed. Turning towards the enemies, he moves for one of them, readying a missile as he does.

[Into the Wireless] Scott says, "Vogue, Pollux. Got it. Scythe, always a pleasure to work with you."

Backlit by the sun reflecting off of the Viper, Wrecker homes in on one of the enemy Raiders that executes a sharp turn to reverse course and trajectory back toward the incoming wing. She glances sidelong to visually confirm her proximity with Vogue, getting the solid tone to confirm target acquired before she calmly selects one of the four missiles her viper is carrying, notches it (so to speak), then sets it free.

[Into the Wireless] Diaz says, "Flight, Wrecker. Target acquired, Missile one away, over."

Leonis is…well, Casey has mixed feelings about the planet. All she remembers is Piraeus, and that's just as radically changed as this planet…her birth planet and the tomb of her biological parents. Thoughts drift in and out, but the heat of battle pulls her back into focus. "Suppressing," she calls out the Raider and then reaches to flip the master arm. "Master arm on. Might as well get things hot."

And here they go! Soon as his vipers form up, Captain Bloodfeather double checks the Raptors look ready to go and are formed up, then he pushes his throttle back up to start his run and lead the 'charge'. He licks his lips and checks his DRADIS as the Lucky Strikes begin to close on that carrier and have Skath Raiders moving like a distant swarm of bees to intercept. The distance closes rapidly, the vipers pushing hard to go in as fast as they can! 'Vogue' arms a missile and begins to chase for a lock, listening to the tones of his cockpit and radio chatter.

Even as the missiles launch, the pilots can see the smoke trails freeze into crystals. They make small, elegant sounds as they pass over the canopy glass. The missiles arc out long and more than two dozen Raiders begin breaking off and throwing chaff and flare. The bright balls burn blue in the zero oxygen environment. The impacts are easy to miss at first, so many pilots focusing on the missiles. But gun rounds begin impacting two of the frigates just as the enemy guns are coming online. Both of them stop firing almost right away as explosions begin rolling across the hulls of the enemy ships. Neither of them explode but there is visible fire even from this distance. The bright white color of burning tylium and exploding munitions isn't hard to miss. Meanwhile the Raiders shove up their throttles and close to guns range.

As the firefight begins in earnest, the raptors throttle back and try to let the vipers provide a shield for enemy guns. This only seems to work to moderate success, as evidenced by the handful of raiders that rapidly zero in on Bennett's bus and begin hounding it with scattershots. "Deploying chaff," she tells Casey in a calm, almost melodic voice as her gloved fingers reach up to flick a switch and tap a button.

[Into the Wireless] Bennett says, "Flight, Nyx. Appreciate a hand with our admirers here."

As the battling ships begin to take their toll upon the Skath, it's a beautiful and awesome sight to behold. Idris enjoys it only for a second for there is too much going on and he'll have to watch gun cam footage later to really appreciate the details at his leisure. Assuming he lives through the engagement. He rubber necks to check on Diaz, glances at his DRADIS contacts on his HUD for the rest of their pilots, and keeps moving fast. Another target is acquired and Bloodfeather doesn't waste any time to see if his first missile was a hit or a miss.

There's a brief smile as his target turns into fireworks, but then Scott looks around, realizing some of the Raiders are heading for Bennett's Raptor. Turning in that direction, he moves in for one of those Raiders, waiting for the right moment to let the missile go.

Niko guides his Viper in alongside Scott, then checks to see which targets the other Vipers are locking up. He flicks the switch to arm his AAMs, then settles the targeting cursor over his chosen raider and waits for the tone that indicates a good DRADIS lock. "Come on…" There we go. "Fox One!" His first missile streaks off to join with the first volley from the dozens of other Vipers, and blows the target Skath in half. One down, a couple million more to go. The sight of the two enemy frigates on fire is a welcome one, but Scythe has other things to worry about. The surviving raiders are coming at them full throttle, and they're about to merge. The CAG is lining up for a guns shot when he hears Nyx's call, and he pivots his ship to try for a missile lock on one of the raiders hounding Bennett instead.

[Into the Wireless] Idris says, "Nyx, Vogue. I'm going after one of them. Wrecker, you look to have two bogies on your six, over!"

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Nyx, Scythe. I see them."

With a swift glance over the playing field, Diaz spares a single look for the raider that the initial missile has sent into a drifting jumble of debris and metal slag, then pinpoints the other missiles that have impacted equally before taking a longer look at the firefight happening all around. The warning tone of incoming target-lock has her eyes narrowing, the intense look remaining on her face as she resists the first impulse to roll into the danger instead of away from it, and speaks briefly to Vogue before she executes a careful side-roll and veers slightly away from the rest of the wing to lead the enemy Raiders away from the Raptors while fighting over weapons-lock with the latter of the two that are angling at her Viper.

[Into the Wireless] Diaz says, "Vogue, Wrecker. Copy that. Leading them away from the wing, time to play tag, over."

Casey can sure as Hades see the results on her sensors and screens. "That's right, frak you motherfrakking elitist toaster ovens," she mutters, local coms picking it up. Meanwhile, her gloved fingers fly across her instrument panel and her keyboard even as she leans back in her seat. "I think they heard me Nyx. We got quite a few trying to lock on to us and stuff. Suppressing." She calls out her target again.

Shifting fire, the guns of the fleet begin moving off the two disabled Skath frigates. They all stop firing for ten seconds as guns traverse and begin taking down better positioning and telemetry off the Vipers and Raptors. Then as a single force, every single gun on both ships opens up at once, sending forty-five explosives tons of lead at a single Skath cruiser. The rounds, some of them quite large, sail past the fleet towards a single cruiser that's engaging the Colonial fleet. The rounds explode across the hull while more penetrate further into those breaches. The cruiser hovers for a moment, dradis going silent, then explodes in a blinding light as the reactors and fuel cook off. The munitions bring several secondary flashes. As it all fades, they can all see that the third Skath frigate is no longer there on dradis. Did it jump? Did it get lost in debris? Hardly a concern for the pilots and aircrew. They are just getting into range of the Raiders and mixing it up hard. The Raiders are swarming and damned effectively.

Meanwhile the carrier is just coming into range for the Raptor's targeting dradis. Signals look good and twenty seconds to launch. But also two new targets pop up on dradis, distant to the dogfight. They classify up on dradis as enemy raiders for all of them. But they aren't engaging yet.

An electronic voice is broadcast, clearly not a human origination by cadence, in the clear on radio frequencies, "Vipers, Vipers. Raider One-Oh-Bravo. Do you require assistance?"

Bennett wasn't kidding when she said things were going to get bumpy. As three separate raiders line up shots on their bus, she deploys the chaff with a clunk and whirr of motors that sends it caroming off in a perpendicular direction. Meanwhile, the engines are firewalled as she weaves the heavy airframe between defending vipers, trying to lose her two remaining tails. All three are ultimately blown to bits, and she immediately course corrects for the skath carrier dead ahead, lining up a shot for Casey.

Niko's second missile arcs off, motor burning bright as it powers itself through a turn to track the speeding Skath. An explosion blossoms in the dark, killing another raider, the flash joining with the dozens of others before being drowned out by the massive explosion of the Skath cruiser. And more raiders are racing in to join the party, along with two odd contacts that his DRADIS list as red diamonds. Enemy. "Frak…" the CAG mutters under his breath. He rolls away from the fight momentarily, thumbing his comms over to broadcast on the guard frequency, and in the clear.

[Into the Wireless] Niko broadcasts in clear, "Unidentified craft approaching the battle, this is Colonel Niko Janik. Break off or you will be fired upon." Then he's over to the secure Wing channel. "Wing, Scythe. We have bogies inbound. If they do not break off in the next ten seconds they are bandits."

[Into the Wireless] Diaz says, "Wing, Wrecker. Sir, did they just offer assistance? over."

[TAC1] Raider One-Zero-Seven says, in broken electronic voice, "Copy, Vipers. Cylon will maintain distance. Jumping single to call for reinforce. Raiders will stage at distance, over."

Only after keying the com to voice her question does Wrecker swap weapons, saving the missiles - just in case - and rolls toward the incoming Raider to exchange weapons fire again. "Come on, you slippery bit of binary brained.." is as far as she gets when she realizes that the targeting tone is NOT coming from just one of the raiders but the carrier as well. She immediately brings the Viper into a sudden snap-turn and veers away, full throttle, trying to -LEAD- the carrier fire /away/ from the rest of the wing.

One more missile fired, one more firework. Scott turns around again, trying to find a good target. Look, there's one right there. Firing at the first enemy he sees, he lets out a bit of a breath.

[TAC1] Petra says, "Raider One Zero Seven, this is Orion. Your offer is appreciated. If your forces can keep a distance from our fighters, we won't mind a few extra holes in those capital ships. Perhaps we can compare tactics later. Over."

[Into the Wireless] Idris says, "Scythe, Vogue. You are attracting a lot of heat! Try to get some of these off of you, over."

Once more cycling from one weapon to the next, Wrecker realizes - after a few intense moments of eyeing the DRADIS - that only one of the Raiders is still targeting her Viper and shifts her focus accordingly.

Idris pulls his viper around hard, aware that he's gotten one Skath raider after another on his tail but he mostly ignores them. Too much is happening too fast and he's more concerned about the other pilots than himself. So far though, so good as none of them are in bad shape yet. Surprisingly! Bloodfeather begins to try and get a missile lock on one of the Skath coming in to harry a Raptor but then Vogue realizes several are trying to swarm all over their CAG. At the last moment the Captain changes his vector to try and try to get a missile off!

Casey's been through bumpy with Bennett before. As they start their wild ride, the backseater has flashbacks to the lurching from the first time she sat backseat to Nyx. Oh yeah…carrier. The big blip starts to approach being in range on her DRADIS. "Okay coming up now…" They go perpendicular… "Hey wait. Oh." The shot comes up and Casey hits the button. "Come onnnnn." She has yet to destroy a carrier. EVEN LUKES HAS DESTROYED ONE.

The guns from the Colonials shift at once and begin firing once again. The rounds travel at sub-light speed, but only just. They sail past the fighters and impact the last cruiser. Its own guns go silent and the dradis shuts down. All the pilots can see the engines shut down and the ship begins a slow turn towards the surface of Leonis. Missiles fire wildly from it, without guidance, heading off into space beyond the heavy cruiser and battlestar. With the third frigate gone, it leaves only the carrier and the enemy wings. But there are a lot of them.

Meanwhile one Bogey jumps away. The other keeps its distance from the engagement and doesn't seem interested in violating the request. Its at such a distance that nobody can even see it in the whole engagement. But then their dradis systems all come alive with multiple warnings. A full squadron has jumped in at the Cylon Raider's location. That voice comes back, disembodied, "Vipers, Vipers. Cylon will keep distance unless requested."

Niko launches his third missile, blowing up one of the bandits headed in on the raptor. But he doesn't have time to watch, as a host of Raiders turning in on him. Scythe hammers the MCS to decelerate and pivot the Viper. Then he slams the throttle forward, piling on the g-force as he forces the ship through a radical course change. It's enough to throw off most the Skaths' targeting, but a few KEW rounds still hit his twisting Viper. Warning light show damage to his flight controls, but he can compensate on manual. Mostly. He continues to turn and comes around, trying to get his last missile locked on to one of the bandits attacking the raptors.

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Vogue, Scythe — nice shot. Flight, Scythe. Keep the raptors clear until that carrier is down!"

[Into the Wireless] Idris says, "Scythe, Vogue Copies. Down to my last missile, over."

Letting out a bit of a breath, Scott glances around. He sees the two Raiders going for a Raptor having people following them, but keeps moving in that general direction. But look, there's one of those Raiders that seems to have decided Niko is a worthy targets, passing right in front of Scott's Viper. Instinctively, he sends off his last missile for that Raider now.

Casey catches herself watching her missile go go go. Luckily she was idly locking on, and the carrier is frakking huge, and Bennett is a good pilot. It just means Casey might be able to hide the fact that she was watching her shot like some fifteen year old on a Pyramid court. "Firing second missile." Most of the time she leaves it up to Bennett to communicate. "3, 2, 1, firing."

[Into the Wireless] Diaz says, "Wing, Wrecker. Last missile as well. Vogue, you cover Nyx, I'll cover you. Scythe, Wrecker. Sir, if the Cylon raiders are offering assistance and not actively defending the skath, they may be here independently. Their offer could be genuine, over."

There's a hit on his craft that sends a shudder through Idris' viper, but it's not serious. Betty sets to bitching anyway and Bloodfeather slaps the mute on the consule. Three missiles away and three Skath Raiders blown to fragments, then last one blown off of Niko's Six before it could get any decent shot. Vogue looks around quick and still his vipers are doing so well, holding them off. A double check of the location of their Raptors and he twists his viper hard to go after another Skath raider that is trying to nail Nyx's craft. As usual, Captain Bloodfeather mostly keeps silent, trying to track on so many things at once as his heart keeps a rapid pace with the action.

Every once in a while the odds are in her favor and seeing the Raider go up in a cloud of debris suits Wrecker right down to the ground, happy wise. She speaks, briefly, cautiously, into the com as she shifts focus again and takes in the greater scope of the fire fight that's ongoing. The two Raiders that are taking aim at her are carefully calculated for as she selects her target, the last of the four missiles that she's carrying, determined to take the heat off of Vogue while avoiding the incoming fire aimed more or less in her direction.

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Wrecker, Scythe. Frak the Cylons. Stay on mission."

[Into the Wireless] Idris says, "Wrecker, Vogue. I'm already on it, over."

[Into the Wireless] Idris says, "Wrecker, Vogue. What's your status? Over."

Few of the Skath ships had time to turn guns before they were taken out. Most of them just missed the two ships that jumped in. But that massive Skath carrier is turning and tilting, its gun battery coming to bear across the Orion and the heavy cruiser. Its already firing and the guns seems split between the two rather than focused fire. Its getting intense and the wing is getting a full frontal of what the power of a Skath carrier is capable of. Even with one nuke having killed a portion, the ship is still active despite part of it floating away in space. Guns impact the cruiser and blow away part of the front end of the ship, most of their rounds overshooting. Part of the main battery is just gone as the front end begins to float away. Fires can be seen burning across it to anyone that looks that direction. Orion takes a couple strikes across the hull, but nothing that seems to cause much damage. Meanwhile the squadron of bogey Cylon Raiders hang off at stand-off distance… a little.

And then they aren't. They begin accellerating towards the heavy cruisers. The group of twelve seems to split in half, forming a shield as they move down the exposed side of the ship and stay out of the guns. The commander must be too busy to notice because their flak guns stay silent.

[Into the Wireless] Diaz says, "Vogue, Wrecker. Light damage to tip and tail, slightly more to the nose actually, but nothing serious. Vogue, you have multiple Skath inbound. Heading your way to take the heat off, over."

[Into the Wireless] Scott says, "Scythe, Pollux. Do you have some kind of magnet that works on Raiders in there with you, or are they just attracted to you? Trying to clear them from you now."

Last missile away! BOOM. Another raider blown into debris. Niko banks hard, eyes flicking to the DRADIS display to check how the Raptors are doing. Looks like the carrier is taking a beating but still in action, but Bennett's ship is clean and in position. He reverses his turn, fighting a little with the damaged thrusters to get the ship flying on the vector he needs to line up a shot at another of the raiders.

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Pollux, Scythe. Yeah … feeling the love."

A quick assessment of the Viper has Wrecker responding to Vogue via com even as she's eyeing the two Skath that are inbound on Vogue's position. The carrier is given a look that is equally speculative and wary while she deliberately pings the targeting lock off of one of the Skath Raiders that are angling at him, trying to distract it or lead it to engaging on her Viper instead. Missiles expended, Diaz swaps to standard KEW and keeps pinging away at the enemy Skath Raider every viper-length of the way.

And his last missile is away! Idris is too busy to take much notice that he's got two Skath gunning for him until Diaz mentions going after them. His focus for that moment was entirely on keeping them off of the Raptors. He has the satisfaction of seeing his missile take out the Machine and then Diaz is hit, caught out of the corner of his eye. "Wrecker, Vogue. What's your status? Over." Bloodfeather brings his viper around hard, checking the feel of her after the craft took a light hit, and seeks for new targets. His gloved hand moves to change over his weapons systems from missiles to KEW. Now it's down to close in fighting! Idris has no time to be tracking Cylons as he glances at the Carrier they are trying to destroy. His HUD starts to light up as enemies are taking shots at him!

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Hiker, Scythe. You're all clear. Blow him to Hades, kid."

And that last missile has done its job. Scott switches over to the guns now, doing his best to come up right behind one of the Raiders chasing Niko. A few deep breaths, as he moves into position, waiting… waiting… firing!

[Into the Wireless] Idris says, "Vogue copies, Wrecker."

Casey watches the main Skath carrier blow the nose off their cruiser after her missile gets shot down and her eyes go wide. Well, she watches it hit on the screen and she looks out the cockpit. "Frak aren't we just supposed to be testing their reaction time?" CAG's voice comes in over comms and she answers back before letting the next missile go when the lock sounds.

[Into the Wireless] Casey says, "CAG, Hiker. Third missile away."

Vipers are getting kills. Pilots are dying. Raptors as well. There are ejection beacons going up all over the place. So far ten Vipers and four Raptors — of those who have ejected with beacons. Things are getting pretty sporty out there. But then there are more dradis contacts. One of them is pretty huge. A single basestar jumps in just overhead of the Orion and the heavy cruiser. Even as the flash fades, missiles are flying at Skath raiders and the Raider packs are launching. They begin swarming, but they seem to be heading towards a blocking formation rather than strict engagement. Any Viper pilot who looks their way can see white 'invasion stripes' painted across the wings of the Cylon Raiders. They're easy to visually spot versus the Skath. Some of them even start to mix it up. But the voice comes across, electronic, "Friendly. Friendly."

Meanwhile that nuke from the Raptor manages to punch through to flak window of the Skath carrier. The depleted uranium penetrator in the head burrows deep, then the warhead fires. The Skath carrier was already burning from the first hit. The second causes a flash out of the belly. Then two seconds later the whole ship disappears in a flash of light. What's left is just parts flying in every direction. Carrier down.

Niko is busy shooting at Skath, but the explosion of the carrier Casey and Bennet blow up gives him a chance to look down and check the display. The Cylons are engaging? Frak. And they have pilots adrift out there. Double frak. He has to turn to engage an oncoming raider, but he's on the wireless at the same time.

[Into the Wireless] Niko calls on the Wing frequency, "Wing, Scythe. Splash one carrier. Head for home. Orion Actual, this is Scythe. We have ejections and beacons active. SAR will take time. You want to ask the Cylons to buy us some?"

There is a wince for the pilots they are loosing, but recovery becons are encouraging - if they have time to get to their people. It makes his heart rate faster thinking about them adrift out there, and it could easily be him. Bloodfeather shakes it off and having missed his shots, takes a hit to his viper himself. A hard twist off and he peels off to port to try and shake his attacker, Betty screaming out her damage warnings as pieces are ripped apart and rounds punch through. Luckily none of them hit the pilot and the damage isn't too serious. 'Vouge' pours on every ounce of throttle he can and runs up to get a Skath off of Diaz. His KEW begins firing, thumb on the firing stud of his stick as Idris closes fast!

Scott rolls slightly to the side after having hit another target. There's a brief moment of pause, as his path when trying to head towards the base takes him near another of the Raiders. Which means another good chance to fire.

[Into the Wireless] Idris says, "Lucky Strikes, Vogue. You heard Scythe. RTB. Wrecker, you've got one on your tail. I'm covering you, over."

Inside her Viper, Diaz makes a sound that's part gasp part sound of shocked joy, neither of which she lets carry over the com, having toggled her end silent just long enough that she saves herself the embarrassment of letting either sound carry. She feels the grin, and it's a genuine grin of fierce joy form on her face, blinking rapidly to keep her eyes clear as she hears the 'Voice' of cylon and sees the stripes painted on the Cylon - NOT Skath - Raiders. She casts a quick look around to check relative position to the rest of the wing, angles so that she's better aligned with Vogue then plunks away at the Raider that's taking aim at her Viper again as well.

[Into the Wireless] Diaz says, "Vogue, Wrecker. Copy that. Engaging while heading for the barn. Do you see the stripes on those Raiders? Over."

[TAC1] "" Petra says, "Basestar, Orion. We appreciate the assist. We need to recover our people and we will be evacuating the area - Mission is accomplished. Scythe, Cover SAR efforts then lets get the hell out of here. Over"

[TAC1] Electronic voice, "Orion, Basestar One-Two-Five, Skath QRF massing at Libran. Recommend you depart Leonis. Cylon will recover pilots, over."

"YES!" Casey's eyes widen as all of the Raiders with stripes start flooding the area. "What the frak get us out of here Nyx!" Yeah she just told her boss and the pilot of the Raptor to do something. "We got it by the way," she adds nonchallantly as if Bennett couldn't see the big boom or anything right outside of her cockpit. "Did…did they just say they would get our pilots?" She looks over to Bennett, already got her target for suppression lined up.

[Into the Wireless] Idris says, "Wrecker, Vogue. I see them, over."

Idris is a little busy to be paying the Cylon much attention but the carrier blowing was a hell of a show! It gets a brief whoop! out of him but not over his radio. Then he's very busy firing his KEW to try and nail the Skath that's gunning for Diaz. There's a blink of surprise when the Cylon offer to pick up Coloniel pilots. Now that's just … creepy as frak. Vogue doesn't say a thing - it's for others to decide, he follows his orders and comes around to make that push to get back to the Orion. But not before taking a good look to make sure his people are GTFO.

[TAC1] "" Petra says, "Basestar One Two Five, Orion. Acknowledged. We are covering our damaged cruiser's retreat while we collect our fighters. Recommend we send someone to second rendesvous coordinates in six hours to talk and collect people then. Over."

Fewer than a couple moments pass from the transmission from the Basestar than two Skath carrier groups jump in at distant orbit. They are about ten minutes out from engagement, which says plenty about their knowledge of the situation. Enemy raiders immediately begin launching. Too distant for gun range, they begin a full power heading for the basestar.

Meanwhile the basestar begins launching heavy raiders. They stream out of the interior of the ship and begin heading for the battlefield of space. No targeting dradis, but they are flying at full power. Everything they are pushing out of their reactors on each heavy Raider match the maximum performance estimates left over from the Second War.

[TAC1] Electronic voice, "Copy, Orion. Previous coordinates. Six hours, over."

[Into the Wireless] Niko doesn't get into the conversation with the Orion and the Cylons. He stays on the air wing channel. "Wing, Scythe. Everyone ignore the Cylons. Any raptor in the clear that can make the jump to the rendezvous: spool up and go fishing for our pilots. Jump when you have to. All other craft, let's go on the deck ASAP."

Firing and missing, Scott manages to avoid incoming fire as well. He keeps on flying for home, firing off one last parting shot to the enemy.

Working to RTB, Captain Bloodfeather is heading for the Orion with the others. A few Skath yet keep up and swarm around them and Idris fires away with his KEW to make a hole for their escape, any opportunity he can. One is persistant to try and go after Pollux so it draws Vogue's fire!

Dueling target locks are exchanged again and again with the same Raider as Wrecker pours on almost undue speed while angling for the barn. The viper frame shudders a bit as the armor absorbs the energy weapon impact, but with no critical damage this far, Diaz just keeps going. Much as she wants to see how this plays out, she equally doesn't want to be on the field (in the field? can space be a field?) when the heavy slugging begins between the Cylons and the Skath fighters.

Niko is part of the fighting withdrawal the Vipers make, using team work to try and clear each other's tails. They may be down to KEW now, but at least there are only a handful of active Skath fighters left to deal with. Hopefully the raptors will be able to recover some of their people, and the Cylons will prove more reliable then he expects. After checking on his wingman and seeing Scott is in relatively good shape, Niko cuts back across the group of Vipers and eases down on the throttle a little, trying to slip onto the tail of one of the clingy bandits that's still with them.

Casey looks back to Bennett at the CAG's order, wondering if it's at odds with Orion, but she starts spooling up FTL as Bennett starts to take them in for pilots. "Spooling FTL." She looks at the beacons on DRADIS and directs Bennett to the closest one. Then as they start to get close, the hatch pops open and Casey only gets out of her seat at the last second to reach out and guide one of the pilots in even as Nyx maneuvers them out of the way of incoming fire. She can hear the alarms of her instrument panel bitching at her to pay some attention. On her step back to her seat, Casey says, "Keying in coordinates…suppressing for our birds." She watches DRADIS and pretty much her and Bennett stick around as long as possible on their fishing expedition till they finally blip out.

There's only so many Raptors that can affect a rescue across a combat space like that. Some of them dive in recklessly, trying to get at the pilots. Even as the Vipers exit the area, scores of Raiders dive in against the enemy. They can see the dogfights shape up on their own dradis in the Viper and Raptor. It's a helluva thing to watch. But two Raptors go down in the fire, the assistance unable to help. But there is upwards of 800 Skath fighters inbound. Dozens and dozens of squadrons. As they all land and begin to jump away, the last thing they see are huge groups of enemy contacts flying toward each other while singles were heading for the beacons.

Getting back to the rendezvous, the Raptors report in. Six Viper pilots recovered. One full Raptor crew recovered. That's a lot of ECO's out there with the coordinates to the Orion battlegoup location. But as the silence descends, there is only the question: What will happen to those ECO's who know the location of the fleet?
