ONCE MORE…
STARDATE: 8055.5, EDGE OF THE TAAL TAN SYSTEM, 0718 HRS FST

     
INTO THE BREECH:
USS Bosch
The Bosch continued to scan deep. So far, the Klingons had stayed away. Soon, the Lydney would take the Bosch’s place and they would be headed back for some well deserved rest.

But the Klingons had other plans in mind. They closed rapidly, intent on the space station. The Bosch and her squadron took up their positions. A second squadron was headed in, and the Alliance’s battle group was also on it’s way. That’s when it all went wrong.

The freighter Eskin had started to run, heading away from the station. But it had just left sensor range when they reported a Klingon cruiser was closing on them. If the Bosch broke off to help the freighter, the station would be defenseless. If they stayed, the freighter would never make it to deep space. Captain Deering of the Bosch did the only thing he could think of. He ordered the Eskin back to the station.

Now Deering faced an even greater dilemma. He needed all his firepower to slow the approaching Klingon fleet. And his reinforcements were still minutes away. Yet somewhere out there was another Klingon squadron, closing rapidly.

Deering decided to face the problem he could see. The Bosch began firing as soon as the first Klingon was in range
