"Whirlwind, move into deployment position," came the order over comm.
Deployment position? Captain Mitth'ray'nasafia barely managed to keep her expressions from showing her surprise at the order. "Acknowledged, Springhawk, moving now," she replied out loud as she nodded to the helmsman to obey. Of course the helmsman had not needed her confirmation for the crahsystor's order and they had already started moving. On the other side of the scene a lone fighter was also making its move.
As Thrayna watched, it made its run and retreated several times.
"We are in position, Captain," the helmsman reported.
"Very good," the captain replied, still focusing on what was going on outside. "Is the gravity projector holding steady?"
"Running at 100 % efficiency, Captain," the tech reported from the new station Thrawn had arranged to be constructed in all haste on board the Whirlwind. "Those ships aren't going anywhere."
