    Chasin is a rather unremarkable, small world in the Core Worlds, but still a Core World, a Core World that the that the Sith previously had control over until that along with many other Empires left. It's quite understandable why the left but now that the gears are back in motion it's time to show this speck of a planet the error of their ways. Sure it's a small world but the Empire is interested in it's position along the Corellian Trade Spine and regaining lost territory.

    Zvonimir Augustus, in the cockpit of his Reflex-class Starfighter would be lying in wait in the space in in the Chasin, quite a distance away (out of normal sensor ranges) overlooking a convoy of two bulk freighters that had just hyperspaced in. He would be with another Sith pilot, an acolyte that Zvon wouldn't be fond of partnering up with. Still he has a mission to do.

    The two would be watching the convoy as they are on the move. The only problem is that with this system among others declaring independence is that they no longer have protection from things like pirate rabble that are looking to capitalize on this trade. Not any more. If pirates come and the Sith swoop in and eliminate the pirates, the people of Chasin would be surely rethinking their choice to leave...

    Zvon's craft has cold thrusters, but as soon as any hostiles pop up he would be ready to warm them up. For now, they would wait.

    Hopefully not too much longer until they can see some action, otherwise that would be boring.

    Sarla was in her new gunship, she recently took from some pirates. This was an XS-109 gunship, with a proton torpedo launcher and a military power core. She had recently hired a pilot as well, as her skills in the hot seat were much to be desired. Her bodyguards were manning the ship's guns, and she was in the captain seats. The ship was on a patrol, with @Zvonimir Augustus an agent of some sort for the empire. She had put her ship to the port side of the two bulk freighters, the issues were jurisdiction. As while the empire, was trying to retake the world, as it recently declared independence. Thus still protecting its shipping, as it was imperial shipping and this world could not protect its ships lanes.

    Sat in her captain's chair, she contacted @Zvonimir Augustus Have you got anything on your scanners? She was drinking tea as she waited, for an answer. Tea was good, that and a good book, which she had on her lap. The book was about a primitive world in the future, in a galaxy far far away. They talking politics and doing political maneuvers to please people, while actually doing nothing other than getting rich. She kinda reminded her of the stories that she heard about the republic and decadence of why it had to die.

    "Nope, not anything yet" Zvonimir answered back on his comms. He looked at his scanners, nothing. And there was no action going on in his view port. With as much time can pass with these boring patrols they could be here for awhile or even not be seeing any action today even. Although pirate attacks have been more frequent in these newly-independant systems they don't exactly happen every day, or at least every few hours. Still, they have their orders to keep their watch. They can't expose themselves in the mean time either, they don't want the presence of Sith fighters unless they are coming for the save. Otherwise they would alarming people about a possible invasion. Not what they want. If Zvonimir knew Sarla had tea he might want some. Oh well

    As time passes, those two eariler bulk freighters would have hyperspaced out of the system, but as this is a major hyperlane they are patroling there would still be other ships coming and going as well.

    Eventually of note there would be a Balaen-class Heavy freighter straight ahead, heading towards the planet, presumably to off-load it's cargo and/or pick up more goods.

    But the boring part would soon end there, as at this point, six FP Pulsar class fighters entered the system one by one in quick succession. They would be all outside combat range at at Zvon's two O'clock. After those pulsar fighters came in, a beat-up ugly colored Nexus Class with pirate insignia on clear display. They all would be be appoarching the heavy freighter and won't be long until they are able to get in close range, but already laser cannon shots were already being fired from them.

    "You see what i see?" Zvon got on the comms. "That's our cue. Showtime" he smiled beneath his helmet. With that, he would move to accelerate his craft, eager to engage with those pirates.

    The Pirates have shown up, in all, there was six of them. Six souls to die, plus a freighter. She acknowledged @Zvonimir Augustus comms, Yes I can see them. She then turned to her pilot and told him, Pilot takes us, and keep ready for evasive maneuvers. As she spoke, she finished her brew and put her book to one side. Apparently, a president might lose his job, for a sex scandal. She did wonder why, but that was the point of fictional books, they can make things up.

    Her ship heads towards the freighter at attack speed, the pulsar ships came in first. They skimmed her ship with fire, as they did. The ship rattled as it did, but the shields held, though some sparks did fly as they did. She needs more crew members, that was for sure. Her heavy blasters, damaged one of the ships as they came on their attack run. Though this was not the main target, hers was the freighter. As she closed in, she orders the firing of the Photon Torpedo,
    Fire the Torpedo she saw it fly out of her ship, heading straight for the freighter. It did not miss, but it did not freighter ether, one the pirate fighter ships looped into the way by accident, and was blown to pieces.

    As this little sortie was about to get started, with Zvonimir's craft going at full speed now and the pirates commiting to attacks and Zvonimir's eyes caught sight of a proton torpedo heading towards the pirate freighter, it looked like it was going to be a direct hit that would blow it up in short order until a random pirate starfighter came between the two and got blown up instead. "Well..." Zvonimir muttered as was still piloting his fighter.

    Now that the pirates would be able to see that two Sith Empire ships are coming for them, they would be smart enough to change their targets. If they go after the cargo heavy freighter then they would be sitting ducks while the Sith duo pick them off.

    Zvonimir was making evasive maneuvers with his fighter as he was going forward in order to avoid enemy laser fire, in addition he would activate his Reflex fighter's shields. While he was closing the distance, he had his crosshairs one one fighter and was attempting to get a lock on it while firing bursts from his laser cannons when he could. For the shots that Zvonimir couldn't dodge the shields took and strained them by the time he finished closing in he had a lock, and and would launch the missile and then Zvonimir would veer up to get out of the line of enemy fire.

    The pirate fighter can try as he liked, but no matter his evasive maneuvers he couldn't evade and was blown into stardust. "One down" he said to himself.

    While the cargo freighter is making it's way to safety, in addition to the other fighters trying to engage Sarla and Zvonimir, the pirate captain on board the Nexus-class would decide to take on the Sith in the gunship, the Captain would order his crew to fly towards the gunship and engage, and fire it's weapons at her, and the crew would comply.

    She cursed the fighter that accidentally got in her way, she wanted that freighter. Though her ship was taking evasive maneuvers, to avoid the fire at her. The pilot was doing a good job, way better than anything she could do. Her shields were holding as well. Now her guns were firing at the enemy, she was still going for the freighter. The gunship was taking tight turns, and flying fast. She felt G forces at work as the pilot did his stuff. She finally got the chance, her photon torpedo was armed. She smiled and gave the order, Open Fire! The photon torpedo this time hit home, it hit the rear the freighter and in the engines. The ship blew from stem to stern, the shrapnel of debris, from its carcass flew everywhere. She smiled as her ship then began to spin round, her ship was now on a hunting spree, and it was after killing fighters.

    Picking up where he left off, with Zvonimir and Sarla' efforts, the pirate forces have dwindled and the heavy freighter the pirates have been preying on are safe, especially since the pirate freighter that had a boarding party and everything are down.

    Unfortunately, the other pirate fighters weren't just sitting around either even though that would be nice, they would be involved in the fight as well, with two pirate fighters flying past the pirate freighter shortly after it's destruction firing it's laser cannons at Sarla's gunship. The hunt have come to her instead.

    Zvonimir was also under fire from the other remaining, two laser cannon shots hitting his shields shortly after he took down the other bogey. The shots were shaking the craft as the shields were dwindling to nothing, there were some sparks flying in the cockpit as the ship was taking increasingly heavier bleed through damage, but juking his craft up straight he wouldn't be a sitting duck as he would be turning craft vertically up ninty degrees from where he was. He gritted his teeth as his shields are down and his craft took a quite beating but at least he can fly. He'd have to keep maneuvering and evading the bogeys on his tail and wait for an opening until then.

    Sarla pilot was starting to have difficulty, as she picked up a couple of tails. They were shooting at her rear, she looked at her engineer, and gave him an order. Send all available power to the rear deflector screen. He was already on though, but the damage was starting to bleed through. She then saw a couple of crew members start putting down a small electrical fire that had started. There was a small faint smell, of a burnt cable in the air. She did not like the smell at all, it smells like fish, which was the insulation board that had burnt. The team was now repairing the damage, as they began to hit the port side thrusters. They cut the engines as well, this span ship round, whilst still moving in the same direction. The photon canon could not be used at the moment, due to the electrical fire, so it was down to her blasters. They fired on the fighters, trying to take them down. They missed but the ships scattered. Though they both picked up some damage from the heavy blasters and had some spark coming of their ships. Her repair team was now trying to repair the photon torpedo launcher system.

    His maneuvers, although desperate against the bogeys chasing him, still manage to by him some time. He would see the heavy shipping freighter that's pulling away. And those pirate behind him aren't looking to give him any quarter. But with quick thinking he figures he could use that for cover. Pulling up and accelerating over there, he would move there with speed with weaving and evasive maneuvers to keep him from getting hit. Almost there, a laser cannon shot made a glancing hit his right wing, leaving Zvon gritting his teeth as the craft shook and sparks flew in the cockpit, at least he had his armored flightsuit to keep the sparks from being distracting.

    With him almost there, he would be looking to fly above the freighter over it's portside and across. As he was doing so, his cockpit screamed as the enemy was getting a lock on him, looking to take him out with a guided missile. If it hit's it would be over. They would also be firing laser cannon shots as well, one final burst.

    As it fired, Zvonimir made it across and would pull downwards hard, leaving the laser cannon shots to hit nothing and even the guided missile's actual guiding systems are only pretty basic, it would try to home in as he went down but would overshoot and miss. The pirates behind him would come down, but Zvonimir would have by then pulled a loop by the time he was visible by the pirates again and would be able to get a the drop of the pirates, firing his laser cannons and firing an unguided missile straight ahead he would destroy one fight and the remaining pirate fighter swerved to the side to avoid getting hit.

    With that, the pilot behind that pirate fighter would be punching in hyperspace coordinates and be making preparations to get out. Zvonimir would put the guy in his cross hairs for a missile lock.

    Sarla repair teams were still working on the photon torpedo launcher, and it was not going to be fixed anytime soon. As they worked, her six was clear, and she nothing in front of her. She looked at her scanner, she saw a fighter turning to bear on her. The fighter was on her port side, she then realized it could also come onto @Zvonimir Augustus rear, as it banked. She orders the pilot, Turn to face the fighter on the port side, gunners bring all our firepower to bear on it. The pilot turned the craft and banked it towards the pirate fighter. As it was going to start firing on her friend, her ship was lined up on it. The heavy blaster bang firing on it quickly, she watched intently through the view screen. She saw the shots fire out hitting the pirate ship, it was unshielded so the ship began to get churned up by heavy blasters. They were both going fast, his ship was faster, but not fast enough. The pilot then ejected, as his ship bit the dust and blew up. His trauma was not over though, as he ejected his capsule bashed into the top half of her ship cracked open. The pilot would quickly die from exposure to space, which was not the nicest way to go, he would have been better of dying in his ship.

    Then Zvonimir launched the missile after the lock is confirmed, smirking all the as the tides of the little sortie have turned. The missile would obliterate the fleeing fighter. Still with his ship going at a steady pace, he would then look at his sensors and there was one more pirate fighter. Turning his craft to face he would do much of the same thing as it is trying to go after Sarla's gunship. But with the momentum shifted favorly towards the Sith and the Imperial, this battle is all but finished. Pulling up on the throttle, Zvonimir would aim to get a target lock on the fighter as he apporaches from it's port side on interceptor course. He would also be firing his laser cannons at an angle so no missed shots can hit Sarla. The pirate makes evasive maneuvers, but Zvonimir slows his craft down while still on the sides to get the best possible shots and not to let the bogey out of crosshairs as much as possible.

    The pirate fighter pulls up and tries to bank to escape certain death, but with the Imperial pilot behind him he would have a missile lock and the combination of the missile and laser cannon shots would cause him to explode before he gets too far. With that, the Empire's work is done here.

    "You alright?" he commed over to the gunship.

    Her ship was damaged, it was stalled and was in desperate need of repair, but @Zvonimir Augustus had destroyed the last two fighters. She breathed a sigh of relief, as she was starting to debate abandoning her ship. He sent her message asking if she was okay, she replied I am now, though I think we will be doing repairs for next hour or so before we can limp back. She had repair teams working on damage now, and the fires were out. The men working on getting the engines started, so they could at least limp back. She was not much of an engineer, and unfortunately all her men were busy, so she made her own brew, and picked up her book to read, while she waited for them to finish it.
