Battleship - Crew of 6
With multiple hostile ships closing rapidly from all sides, the Science Officer began scanning enemies posing the greatest threat. An elite was the first to make a move, accelerating toward DS4. We warped to them as they began their attack run. Engaging with Primary Beams and Homing torpedoes, frequency was set and the Elite was dispatched. There was no respite however, as another Elite moved in to range of DS2. Warping to defend DS2, we had to destroy or disable the enemy as quickly as possible as more Elites were closing on the other stations. A large enemy fleet, consisting of Kralien heavy vessels was threatening DS4 and so were out our next target. Firing an ECM and Nuclear salvo, the majority of the fleet was destroyed or disabled. We moved in to finish of the remaining vessel.
The mission continued, seeing us manoeuvring rapidly around the sector to defend the other stations. DS3 was attacked and reduced to 20% shields, only just holding out long enough for us to come and engage the enemy. Two enemy Elites had engaged it whilst we had been defending DS1 toward the top of the sector. Energy dropped to perilously low levels on two occasions, requiring homing torpedoes to be used as emergency energy reserves. With so many enemies getting close to the starbases before we had time to engage them, ECM and nuclear torpedoes could not be used, and we were forced to engage enemies with Primary Beams and Homing torpedoes.
The final fleet was huge, consisting of 8 - 10 heavy vessels and including two Arvoninan light carriers. It was closing on DS4, from a direction of approximately 240 and was at a range of around 9000. We moved at warp 3 to get to DS4 and docked to replenish our supplies. As we docked, the carrier launched their fighters, two squadrons began bearing down on our position. Store replenished and Energy levels at 800, we undocked and turn on a course perpendicular to the enemy fleets position. The fighters continued to head towards us. As they closed the distance, we turned to face directly away, bearing 025 and launched a single mine. Tactical began reloading 1ECM and 1 Nuke in to the tubes as Helm turned to engage the remaining fighters. Quickly dispatching them, helm continued on a course of 183 to engage the massive enemy fleet. At range 4000, the ECM/Nuke salvo was fired, disabling multiple enemy vessels. Maximum power was diverted to the tubes and another ECM/Nuke Salvo was loaded. At range 3000 the salvo was fired again with devastating effect. The final enemies either surrendered or were destroyed.
The mission was a complete success. It has been our finest hour and each officer performed admirably, fulfilling their role to maximum effect.
The Comms Officer was invaluable. 20+ enemies surrendered during the mission, taking them out of the fight within minutes of sustaining damage.
The Tactical Officer performed admirably. Targets were continually changing in order to cause maximum damage. As soon as an enemy has surrendered, the target switched away from them.
Helms followed orders precisely. I ordered a bearing and helm put us on it. Without the precise manoeuvring, the tactics used to destroy enemy fighter would never have worked.
The Science Officer kept reporting. Ensuring I was informed of enemy’s location and fleets posing the greatest threat meant that I never overlooked something. Scans of target vessels were completed efficiently and information of fleet composition was relayed to me quickly. Finally, frequencies were given ensuring the tactical officer could set weapons for maximum effect.
Finally the Engineering Officer... he did his job. Information on shield and energy levels was continually updated and when someone needed something, they got it; when tactical needed to get something loaded quick, engineering made sure he had the power to tubes; when helm was turning to engage, manoeuvring was peaked.
All in all, each member of the bridge crew performed to perfection.
