GRAND SUCCESS
STARDATE: 8046.1, FEDERATION TERRITORY NEAR THE KLINGON NEUTRAL ZONE, 2047 HRS FST

     
EARLY VICTORY:
IKV Decimation
“There are three destroyers in orbit around the inner planet. Once we leave orbit, they will take several minutes to get here. We should have enough time to attack the incoming convoy before they arrive. The remaining Federation ships are not within scanning distance. “ The science officer looked confident. Admiral Krelk decided to make him less confident.

“How long would it take for Federation re-enforcements to reach us if they were just at the edge of sensor range?” Krelk smiled at the sudden nervous look on the science officer face. The officer looked quickly at his controls, making rapid calculations. Yet it was the navigator who spoke first.

“My lord, the Federation convoy is nearly within full sensor range. The gas giant will not hide us much longer.” Krelk’s eyes narrowed as the science officers eyes grew large. It was a report that he should have come from him, not the navigator.

“Proceed with the attack,” the Admiral ordered, never once taking his eyes off the science officer. “Make sure I have plenty of warning about those Federation re-enforcements. I’d hate to have to kill you before your first battle is over.”

The science officer swallowed hard and tried to watch several sensor screens at once. He knew the Admiral was as good as his word. He could hear several bridge officers chuckle as the ship surged toward the convoy.
