"Dropship Illish'harkum to any vessels. Respond please."
"It is of no use Commander. There is no response from any vessels of the fleet within range. We have managed to reroute sensors. The cruisers Barom'Turbik and Nomish'Burcal appear to adrift. No energy readings. The destroyers Duban'Murkat, Inish'Murcab, Gartan'Lurtres and Illia'Harvet also without power. We are picking up energy signatures at extreme sensor range. Because our systems are compromised, I can not detect the specific signatures pertaining to racial tech."
"Very well. Life-support? Maneuvering? Weapons?"
"Life support is functioning on battery power only. Engines are still offline Commander. Our engineer is attempting a myriad of bypasses to give us manual control, but it will take time."
"Prepare to launch the log bouy."
"Unfortunately even that system is currently down Commander. Again we are attempting to bypass the affected systems."
"For once I wish perhaps we had Pentarans working the engineering work-arounds. At least they..."
"Commander, a positive ID on the long range sensors. Daemon assault group is inbound. 113 Mark 32 degrees. Inbound speed 8.5 nominal. Weapon range in 24."
"Order pilots to their star-fighters. Radio silence, complete radio shut down. We'll blow the launch doors and launch them under their own power. We will not go down without a fight. Perhaps someone else had a similar idea... I hope."
