The First Wave (Joined Squad A)
"Squad A, the enemy's position is locked. Prepare to warp in 3...2...1... GO!" you shout, slamming the throttle and activating your ship's warp engine. Pressed into the back of your seat, a gate made from a swirling ring of light appears in front of you. Passing through, you suddenly find yourself flying directly at a sea of snake-like space creatures, each one at least as large as your ship. "Engage!" you yell, flipping the safety off on your Blaster Turrets.
Using a barrel-roll, you manage to maneuver through the sea of voracious beasts, eliminating scores of them with each violet flash of your Blaster Turrets. The ones you miss are quickly handled by Sam and Ga'Rook's impeccable teamwork.
Zooming from enemy to enemy, the thought crosses your mind that this battle might just be winnable. The ancient technology and your crack team of pilots are actually doing it! That thought is interrupted by a sudden radio call from Trion in squad B though, "Captain, there's a red one that's a little bit bigger than the others! Any way you can provide some backup?!" Just as you are about to reply though, a sudden scream seems to come from the center of the Gorgons, cutting out all of your comms.
"Sorry Trion, it looks like we've got our own problems," you reply anyways, hoping squad B can manage on their own.
