The Far Orbit
drops out of hyperspace at the correct coordinates, and there she is - the New Star
. She is sitting idle at the rendezvous point, just like the logs on Shipment 1037 detailed. She's pristine, seems fuller with all of her escape pods, though that could just be a trick of the mind.
You're standing by Commander Seki on the command deck. Sensors are open, the comms are pinging already due to proximity. Transponder IDs seem like they'll hold.
Ensign Leex reports, "X-Wings, the Profit Margin, the Long Shot, and the Woenid Nexus are in tight formation behind us, out of visual, Captain Vos.""Ah! Captain Conar of the New Star,"
Commander Seki says over comms in a cool, confident manner betraying a hint of urgency. "This is Captain Seki of the Far Points. We are requesting assistance. Our frigate ran into an anomaly in hyperspace that took out a third of our systems."To trick the New Star for a surprise attack
, roll+Canny. On a hit, choose options. On a 7-9, choose one. On a 10+, choose both.
- Commander Seki successfully deceives Captain Conar, giving you the chance to strike the first blow! Deal surprise damage against your opponent, then the New Star
will react in a new round of salvos
- Your crew is invigorated by the successful sneak attack; take +1 Forward on your next move. If the results of your next move is a 10+, take a +1 Forward. This will continue for the entire battle, until you miss or roll a soft hit.
On a miss, something went terribly wrong. You're in for a very tough fight.
