We found the pirates that we were looking for, but they are in bad shape. Their carrier was destroyed, and while they have a few corvettes, they’ve lost a lot of their fighters.
That would be bad enough, but the Imperials that took them out are closing in fast. I don’t think we have the space to jump safely with all of them, so it looks like we’ll need to fight and the odds are long.
At leas the asteroid field will give us a little advantage – the fighters are more maneuverable in the debris, though the Imperials likely have fighters as well.
I need to come up with a strategy and fast…
