Commander Kotau, can you give us your plan of attack or otherwise let us know what you're doing? My fleet is speed 4 at the moment so I cannot get to Yullado I in one turns time but you could still intercept that understrength fleet heading there.

Let us know what you are planning, please.

OOC: Nice easy way to determine casualties, why didn't I think of that. Sad

I would like to congratulate Commander Kotau on a brilliantly executed offensive. That was a thing of beauty, my friend. Good job!

I will be starting construction in a month to secure the Worric system to stop those ships constantly coming thru. Remember they have another fleet somewhere which had visited the Worric system.
Also I have decided (financies permitting) to build a new Launcher Class carrier to replace my old and slow Saya Class. I rather hope CW will send a construction ship to cover his western approaches, although it appears clear at this stage.

(ooc) 3 more days and I'll be back home.

Two of the crippled ships I sent along to Worric IX are going to be destroyed. One has already and the other is a lost cause as well. No way to save them at this point, I'm just glad my crippled Cuspis could be stopped before transiting that warp point.

I'll have to bring my fleet back to clear out those frigs buzzing around and prevent further losses unless we have some available ships in Worric to do that.

I don't think there are any spare ships in Worric, but maybe Fizbon? I'll be out of comm range for a couple of days shortly. I will wait for Kanas 5 ships to reach the w/p near my construction ship before I risk moving it in and start construction.
Everyone note, I have a shipment of fighters just arrived at Fizbon VI on Prophets supply ship. There is one Carrier waiting, there which can be loaded, although I guess Astorax you may be waiting for finances?

Yes that carrier would more than likely go to Kotau, but there is another in route. That one should be going to Astorax. Now if we could only afford fighters for them both.

If I may, System Lord?

Perhaps you may take this opportunity to focus on increasing resource production. The enemy is no longer bearing down on you with a huge armada. Might be the best chance to boost your economy. That way you can afford a larger defense when we really need it.

I think he is refering to building defenses on one of the WP's.

That is affirmative, CNO. SL Alikiwi has a construction ship poised to begin construction of defenses at the Sundry warp point in Worric pending on warship coverage.

Cmdr. Astorax is correct. Also my comms system is now fully functional again, so I don't have to try and be so brief Laughing

I have for some time now been increasing resource production and now only need to boost organics! Was it not long ago, I was drowning in the greenery?

Securing Worric properly, and taking that enemy planet is now the main focus. I'm sure Kotau can clean up the remains of the alien trash in Sundry.

I believe the wisest idea to clean Sundry would be to attack the three carriers and frigate with both Astorax's and my fleet. I can only assume they are heading towards Worric again, putting me directly in their path, and Astorax one move away. Hopefully a pincer move could be used to divert their many fighters from massing against us in one direction.

Astorax, how do you feel about this? My fleet is not in the best shape after that last battle, most of mine are at speed 2, however I do still have some speed 4 and 5 ships availiable. I will also be sending the Onyx (my Livingstone class repair ship) to Worric IX this turn to assist in repairs.

This last turn I killed one of their light carriers, 2x dessies, 2x frigs so that one carrier fleet is all they have left in Yullado. My hope is that Yullado III could not resupply all their lost fighters. That being said, I'm game to hit that fleet with you next turn, Kotau.

Unfortunately, I lost 2 of my crippled ships to those frigs floating around in Worric. That needs to be cleaned out.

Sounds like you have the right idea. The w/p to Sundry is now blocked. However, the same can not be said for Kennelworth! Now a carrier has come thru and another is immediately behind it. It is regretable Crixon never sent his construction ship there to build defenses.
I will ask CNO Kana if he can spare just one ship up there, plus CEO Prophet has one and Crixon a Carrier with another heading there. With those they should be able to cover that w/p and build defenses.
If possible Crixon should build a repair yard and/or Naval Slip Yard at Egoria IV.
I will be moving my construction ship onto the Sundry w/p asap. I have also produced a list of units and ships to be upgraded for SJ!

Yes, i never had the opertunity to send that ship there, ive been working on getting my finances balanced after the trade got shot down, and only recently was i able to pull myself out of the hole, prophet and myself do have a contract starting now, that will get ships onto that point, and ill begin the construction of defences,

The only ships the navy could send are a division (4 ships) of the 12th PatRon stationed in Cephedrii. They are tasked with trying to cover both Synth and Obotron. These are just Falcon patrol craft, but they could possible kill any single thing that comes through a warp point. Especially if there were wp defenses.

This will be tasked next months orders. It will take some transit time, probably 2 months to get to Kennelworth/Egoria, plus repair of one ship.

Best place to defend would be the Egoria/Kennelworth WP (Egoria 1,2).

Other items of interest. I would scrap the Resupply Depot at Egoria III and build a RD at Egoria IV, II, or III. Kennelworth IV could probably use a RD and or a Repair facility to support future operations in Kennelworth.

I could build a RD at Egoria II when I colonise it. I probably wouldn't scrap the one at Egoria III as may build repair facility there and it would be needed, especially for upgrades where ships may have no supplies.

I believe half that fleet would be enough, as I think Synth is virtually unprotected and there is a lone alien in the region. I think Prophet may have a small squad there somewhere. This may more properly be decided by Crixon as its his construction ship.

OK, just found he has 13 ships, so you can spare all 4 ships, thats good.

If you need Organics, let me know Alikiwi. I have PLENTY. Could easily afford to sell you 30,000+.

A squad that is about to be mothballed due to lack of funds. I am losing a contract.

FSL Kana. I am in negotiations with Dkanre for a new defense contract. Between my forces and your patrol ships, we may be able to secure the D'narlom border. Once the deal is signed.

I have posted orders for the non-crippled ships in my fleet to pursue and attack the three carriers and escort ship to the south of the 3rd's position.

With 2 movement, I am certain that I will intercept them next turn.

I have also dispatched FNS Onyx, a Livingstone repair vessel, to Worric IV

FNS Onyx, to Worric IV an uninhabited planet? I presume you meant Worric VI near the Fizbon w/p?

Crixon, are you aware that Darkstar Vexor is about to run into an enemy carrier? If you merge DDS Bowshaft and your 2 carriers you could take out that enemy carrier, and then block that w/p to Kennleworth where another ship is about to come in!

I will shortly have a new carrier built in Egoria, which can be used at that w/p as well to cover your construction ship. Later I may need to move it to Fizbon to replace the old Firefly ship I have there.

5th Flotilla is set to seek after that carrier in Yullado. My other fullsize carrier at the Maverick warp point in Yullado is going to Yullado I and next turn joining my fleet. After that I will be complying with a request from SL Combat Wombat to clear Yullado III of its fighters and base so he can send more troop transports in. Meanwhile, SL Alikiwi, did you need my Harvest Moon at some certain planet to load up with troops or is Fizbon good for right now?

I have 5th Flotilla ordered to jump to Worric but not to chase the remnants of the FoD. If they don't goto their colony in system I can follow next turn. If they do, I won't die horribly since I'm understrength perhaps for an assault on such a planet - I envision massive fighter swarms, heh. In anycase, it would be best to engage that planet with Commander Kotau and I combined. Meanwhile my fleet will hold on the warp point to cover any crippled ships transiting into Worric heading for the repair mecca that is Worric IX.

Ali, I have again ordered the Harvest Moon on Fizbon VI to do the aforementioned orders.

I've left this thought a bit late, but I've PM Kana to get that carrier loaded - at Fizbon VI, and to move with my HHS Hermetic and warp thru to Worric and cut off those carriers. We have nothing else to catch them with. I've offered to donate some fighters if needed. Hope Prophet pulls back that construction ship, I see he just posted orders!

I will be pursuing the carrier ships at speed 4 effective immediately, SL Alikiwi. Anything you can do to slow or halt their progress wouls be a boon

For the record, I did notice the threat to the Green Dragon. She is actually now in Worric. If I can scrape up the funds, she will start building units for the war.

DD Squad Two is now in Fizbon and repaired sufficiently to be combat ready. We will attempt to intercept the first carrier.
