<<Lt Commander Amelia Evans, Fleet Communications Officer, RNZN, NPC>>


"Borg," Steven spit the word out like it was a piece of rotten meat that he had bitten into. "XO, make to all fighters. Form up and attack." One saving grace was that the Borg didn't have any fighters. Or so he hoped. "Commander Evans, open a channel to SGC and feed this to them live." He prayed that there wouldn't be any leakers. One stray nuke would make things a real bad day on Earth. Disclosure would be one of the least of their worries.

<UNS Saggitta-Bridge>

 Without hesitation, Maria summed up the situation very quickly, as far as capitol ships went, they were outnumbered. But, as far as capability and technology went, the combined Tauri/Kelt fleet would have it all over them if as she suspected they were using older captured Hat'aks and other ships they had seen used by the former Hozgura. If also as she suspected this was the very same Borg who had left the Alpha site almost a year ago now, unless they had advanced very quickly, or at worst were using volunteers of some new alliance they had formed, or lastly, as some suspected the Borg leader or king as he called himself, Kharzul went in search of his lost tribe. That would be devastating, as El'Dari rumors hinted at a race of Borg whom they had battled with for over 300 years in Pegasus, had the advanced capabilities most every other race had. If they were in the Milky Way, it could spell doom for everyone, enemy and friend alike. Worst of all, they had come so close to Earth.

 In a blink of the eye, it could all be over, it just depended on what the enemy threw at them. "All fighters, from Saggitta actual, form attack vectors now. Stream in from either side. Kelt fleet command, make a hyper jump now, see if you can move in behind them."




<UNS Victory Flight>

 

 Lily was out in her own brand spanking new 302F series, all the whistles and bells. New missile stations had been added over the earlier versions, somewhat slightly bigger and heavier, a comparison between the FA/18c and Super Hornet would be a good one. Her entire squadron had been upgraded to the same units bar a dozen or so. "Mesa, if you have those heavy hitter gate buster mark tens on board, use them to good effect. Once we're in range, have your units fire salvos at the lead ships. We'll try and soften their defences." As soon as that was out, Lily led her flight in fast. They were closing at incredible speed, the distance shortening every second; still, with just a thousand meters out, the enemy offered no fighter screen. What were they waiting for?

Mesa frowned.  "You've got to be joking."  Were those really the Borg?  She remembered that day all too well.  They had lost their science officer and she had feared they would never see the girl again.  She shook her head slightly as Lilly came on the radio.  'You got it.  We'll hit it with everything we have," she promised.

Ty raised a brow.  Mesa was mad and that wasn't a good sign.  It wasn't something one saw too often.  Ty wisely remained quiet as he pulled up the screens for the weapons, ready to fire as soon as the time arose.  Mesa carefully maneuvered them into position, keeping a close eye on the enemy.  What were they waiting for?

"Negative on that Saggitta," came the reply from Aoife. "We are showing anomalous sensor readings in that area."

The Kelt fighters went in, bobbing and weaving to avoid the Borg fire. They went for the point defenses first to knock them out, to be followed up for missile strikes.

<UNS Victory Flight>

 From the two Tauri ships, supported heavily by the Kelt fighters, waves poured into the immediate 'front' of the enemy invasion. Those ships had split into for units of four, giving each of them adequate protection from one another as the defenders of the Solar System screamed in to do as much damage as possible in softening the main force so that their 'Mother' ships could finish off the job.

 "Come on, come on!" Lily shouted into nothingness as she anxiously awaited a fighter coverage from the enemy that somehow she knew was there. If the allies gave them everything, they might well come up empty and find themselves in deep trouble now that they had committed away from their own ships. Over and over again small waves of fighters pounded the defensive systems of the enemy, but still no sight of a resisting force. At this rate, even as Lily saw one or two of her group pull away damaged, the whole thing could be taken as a distraction. Then when she felt the flights had done enough, with several wings even now heading back, the gates of hell opened. The Borg, if that was entirely who they were, apparently were not stupid either. Two of the larger center ships parted ways to reveal a massive force of black dots illuminated by the stars, there had to be over three hundred of them. Now the fight for life was on. One ship at least had taken a battering from Mesa's missiles, it appeared to make to leave slowly.

Mesa kept her guard up, getting as close as she dared without taking any hits.  She trusted Ty to hit his mark.  He might have been a medic but he was a heck of a shot as well.  Mesa shook her head. "Something isn't right here, Ty," she said, scanning the area.  "This almost seems too easy.  Like they're playing us."

Ty scrunched his nose as he fired another shot.  "I hate to admit it, but I have to agree.  This isn't good..." He trailed off as the gates opened and he stared in shock.  "What in blue blazes is that?" he asked, his face paling slightly.

This was too easy, Steven thought. He knew the Borg weren't that stupid and could handle their ships better than that. As he watched, he saw the enemy formation split down the middle to reveal hundreds of fighters. He opened his private circuit to the Kelt fleet. "Fiona, we've been played. Those aren't Borg commanding those ships." He switched circuits. "Mesa, Lily. This is Saggitta. Pull back." He wanted the allied fighter formations under the protection of the destroyer screen's weapons to reform and prepare to attack again.

"Send the destroyers in," Fiona said, and she saw the light units immediately begin to move. Half of all Kelt destroyers and cruisers were what Terrans would refer to as AEGIS ships, but their anti-missile and anti-air armament were far more powerful in proportion to their size. The Allied fighters fell back behind their protective umbrella and began to reorganize for attack runs.

<<Brigadier General Steven Caldwell, C-in-C SGC Fleet, CO Saggitta>>


Steven watched as the evolution was accomplished flawlessly. "Fire as soon as you can get a target lock". Missile and energy fire immediately started erupting from the capital ships. Dreadnoughts carried an enormous armament.

<UNS Saggitta-Bridge>

 Without blinking Maria hit the weapons console that activated the drones. The ship was still in terms of the SGC at least new, even if it was older than Earthlings had been walking upright. When they recovered the ship from the Tagreans it was found from extensive research that it had seen very little service in the hands of its original owners the Lanteans (Ancients) and it came fully stocked with a complete compliment of drones. While some of those had been expended during the recent battles with the Destroyers, the Saggitta still had enough to make a decent show of a fight and with its added pulse weapons it was still possibly one of the most formidable ships in any galaxy. At just over 3,000 meters long it was also huge.

 She was now in the control chair, her station during battle and every focus, every mental effort was put into defending her ship as well as their escorts. As the drones we seeking out their targets, she maneuvered into a defensive screen for the Victory. For although that ship was powerful enough on its own merit, as it was now with the two Tauri ships and the Kelt Task force, they were still heavily outnumbered and outgunned. It would of course be a battle of wits and attrition. 




<UNS Victory Flight>

 

"Damn it!" Lily yelled in anger when she saw the trap sprung so quickly. She should have seen it coming, she simply ignored the obvious. Swinging her group around, they high tailed it for the screen of the Kelt destroyers, then once in position as she saw the Saggitta's drones doing some of their work for them, the tactics were changed and the fighter and 401 elements switched to attacking the mother ships. They had to soften them up to make any difference. "Mesa! Give me cover, I am going for that central lead ship!" She had her AIM 120's, both of them fitted with nuclear warheads, hopefully with her wingman they could do some damage.

<<Commodore Jack Campbell, RAN, 2/C-in-C, SGC Fleet, CO Victory>>


Jack watched intently from his command chair as the missiles flew towards the Borg capital ships. One of them was leaking atmosphere, apparently it's anti-missile defenses had been weakened to an extent that one of the fighters had gotten close enough to get a hit. Suddenly there were flashes as four missiles converged on the cripple and exploded. It staggered and fell out of line. He could see lifeboats suddenly separating from the vessel, and then there came an even bigger flash as Aoife's powerful beam cannons got a direct hit on the unprotected bow. One second it was there, the other second it was just scrap floating in the void.

Ty's eyes widened.  "Shoot!" he shouted.  "What the heck is going on here?" He fired a couple shots to cover their tail as Mesa turned the little 401 to high tail it back to the Saggitta.

Before they got the whole way back though Lilly's voice blared on the radio. "You got it, Lilly," Mesa answered.  "You heard her Ty.  Give her some cover."

Ty nodded.  He took aim, laying a round of cover fire for Lilly as she moved her ship in for the shot.  He prayed it worked and they could at least disable the other ship a bit.  Otherwise they could all be in serious trouble.

<UNS Victory Flight>

 Now she had an opening, one of the supporting ships was beginning to break up with the enemy focusing their efforts from both capitol ships and fighters on her own fleet ships. Missiles and gunfire from Mesa's 401 streaked passed her, other fighters from the combined squadrons added their weight to; they could see what Lily was about to do very clearly.

"Don't let their fighters slip through!" She yelled over her radio, not even bothering to remember the enemy could possibly hear her. Hopefully their English wasn't up to scratch.

 The heavily laden 302F screamed in, she was determined for the kill. At 5,000 meters Lily was still aiming straight at the lead ship, at 2,000 meters they opened fire with their defensive guns. She jinked and twisted around the barrage, so much so she almost made herself sick. At 500 meters she opened fire with her rail guns, but of course that wasn't her plan. With the constant barrage from her own forces, the shields were weakening on the enemy ship; this was her chance. Two AIM missiles with their nuclear warheads streaked away from her bird, at the last moment she banked away, making sure they hit their intended target, the view port of the Peltak. The armored covering broke away as the missiles penetrated, Lily was now some 3,000 meters away when the blast from the Borg Mothership rocked her so violently, her 302 started to tumble in space.

Steven fought down his urge to cheer as he saw the enemy ship explode. The allied fleet was still outnumbered. Something was nagging him. Those Borg pilots were too good. He thought that they may not be Borg at all, but someone else entirely.

<<RKNS Aoife, Flagship, Task Force Sol>>

<<Vice Admiral Fiona Drummond, Royal Keltic Navy, Flag Officer Commanding Task Force Sol>>


Fiona watched the battle unfold from her flag deck. Suddenly she saw the enemy fighters converge on one of the Kelt destroyers and knock its shields flat, then a missile salvo from one of their battlewagons hit it full on, breaking through the vastly weakened shields and taking out the forward batteries and causing atmosphere to stream out into space.

<401>

Ty and Mesa did their best to provide cover for Lily as she went for the "kill".  They both smiled when the battleship was blown up, but something still seemed off.  Just what was going on here and who were these people?

"Lily?  You still okay?" Mesa called as she righted their own little 401.  Ty watched out the window, trying to gauge their next step.

 Over and over the 302 went until the stresses were so great Lily could hear from within her cocooned capsule that was the 'bail out' option, her little ship was breaking up. Even though she was in the vacuum of space, the spinning motion was setting up its own G forces which were added to some of the damage her craft had already taken. Glancing to her starboard side, she saw in horror the wing starting to shear, on her port side, that wing was already gone. "Mayday, mayday!" She yelled over her radio, then it hit her while she still had her wits. "Mesa, you need to get closer then beam me out. I don't think even my escape capsule will hold." Another groan and she had to seal her helmet as she saw the inner atmosphere of her 302 begin to leak through a hole in one side. "Better make it quick....."
