3 hours later...
=/\= Bowman, this is big bird, Mission complete come on home,=/\= Came the voice of Ensign Lauren Jordan, as Paul knew that the ship had gained all the data it needed, Paul replied, =/\=Copy that Big bird, we are returning home, =/\= as he knew that the rest of the flight had heard the message and were returning to formation near their leader, Paul thought oO well, that wasn’t difficult was it Oo as they started to make their way back to the Tomcat.
Just then without any warning Paul felt his fighters rear shield to fluctuate as four blips appeared on his scope =/\=All fighters, this is Bowman, we are under attack,=/\= he stated over the com, He continued, =/\= Commence attack pattern alpha,=/\= as they peeled off from the positions and moved to go after the lead Enemy fighter. Paul unlocked his weapons cache and set his targeting system to auto lock on to the nearest enemy fighter, He thought oO And I thought this could not go pear-shaped, Oo as the dogfight began in earnest.
=/\=Copy that Bowman, =/\= replied Highlander as Paul knew his team would not let him down, he also knew that this was his first major test in a fighter and he was going to pass it as he didn't want to fail and lose his wings.
As the battle-imbued and Paul and his fighter team dodged missiles and Phaser blasts and returning fire with their own weapons, Paul knew this could go one way or the other, He called,=/\= Big Bird this is Bowman, we are under attack, I repeat we are under attack, we are defending the freighter,=/\= he continued =/\= we need reinforcements,=/\= He finished, =/\= Send us warrior queen and her troops,=/\= as he knew Shakram and her team was itching to get out here. As he noticed more blips approaching adjoining in from the direction from where the first set of enemy fighters had come from.
=/\= Copy that Bowman, Warrior queen is on her way with her troops,=/\= replied Lauren over the com, as a fighter exploded in front of him. Paul replied, “Copy that Big Bird,” as he started to get a lock on an enemy fighter, as the sound of the targeting system grew louder and the Crosshairs moved over the back of the enemy ship Paul let rip with his Phasers which sent the craft spinning out of control.
Just then he heard shakram’s voice over the Com =/\= So, I have to bail you out of trouble then Bowman?=/\= as the Klingon’s entered the fray and the enemy knowing were outgunned and outmanned by the numbers that had turned up, turned and ran, Paul replied, =/\= Thanks for the assist Queen, it was appreciated=/\= he finished =/\= Now let’s go home,=/\= as they all turned and headed for home Paul noticed something wrong with his fighter.
As they got nearer to the Tomcat and each one of the Fighters landed upon her deck without incident, Paul looked at his console and noticed sparks started to fly across the console and the ship began to shudder as if something had come loose during the battle. Paul said,=/\= Big Bird this is Bowman, I am having problems with the controls,=/\= as he tried to slow the craft down, suddenly the throttle opened making the craft speed up.
He said,=/\= Mayday, Mayday, Throttle has opened up and I’m coming in Hot,=/\= as he headed towards the deck in full view.
- Tomcat’s Hanger deck -
Lauren called” Everyone clear the deck, I repeat clear the deck, Fighter coming in hot,” as she opened her com channel, she said, “Medical team to the Hanger deck ASAP” as the fighter suddenly slammed into the deck and began to slide breaking one of the wings.
Meanwhile, inside the fighter, Paul tried and failed to keep it steady as he shook violently about as his left arm smashed against the sides of the cockpit whilst he thought oO This is the end of me Oo as the craft came to a stop and the fire started to break out.
