The green skinned Orion woman, Gaila with her red hair, grabbed the command chair she sat in as her ship was rocked by another impact of phaser fire.
The Nova class variant, Twilight, was taking a beating to the ship's shields. "Gaila, aft shields down to forty-two percent." "Torpedoes?" Asked Gaila as she looked over at another escaped Orion woman sitting at the tactical station. "We only have eleven left! No sign of any ships answering our distress call!" Gaila frowned and shook her head, red locks tossed about her shoulders. "Continue firing phasers! I want to know the moment the warp drive is back online!"
The communication system suddenly came to life with a voice from another vessel. "Nova class ship, come about to port and stay clear."
Gaila held her breath a moment and then motioned to the Orion woman at the helm. "Do as the voice says, it can't get worse than what we have been going through."
As her stolen ship pulled to port, three ships de-cloaked behind the Orion slaving cruisers. Two Klingon B'Rel modified ships and one modified Centaur class vessel.
Disruptor fire from the Klingon ships slammed into the Orion slave ships as Archimedes vessel fired off not only phasers, but also that of torpedoes at the attacking vessels. Aft shields failed upon one of the Orion ships and the next weapons fire from one of the Klingon ships broke through the hull to impact near engineering. Internal explosions started to over take the vessel as the other Orion ship came about to open fire at the attacking three.
Moving about the remaining Orion ship, which had gone from predator to prey now, starboard shields began to fail. With a volley of torpedoes from all three of the attacking vessels to that side of the Orion ship, her shields failed and the nacelle was blown off of it's support structure. Unable to escape now, the Orion slavers on board would face their end under the combined fire of the three unknown attackers.
"She's breaking up. Life signs, none detected." Commented Commander Dorn on board Archimedes ship. The Klingon male actually grinned a bit over at Archimedes who gave a light nod of his head. "Ash to ash, dust to dust. Nicely done Kruger, Delnora." Kruger laughed from his Klingon ship over the communication system. "I would of loved to see their faces when we opened fire right behind them." Delnora, half Klingon and half human, smirked on board her Klingon ship. "They were too focused on their prey that they in turn became such. Slavers, too weak to be real men. They have to rob others who can't defend themselves of their freedom. I say the less roaming about the stars the better. It was a bit of fun destroying two of their ships I must admit."
"This is Archimedes Remus to Nova vessel. Do you require assistance with repairs or can you make it to Frontier Station? It is only a short trip by warp from this system."
Gaila blinked on board her stolen Nova class ship. She had managed to escape the Orion Syndicate slavers along with a little over seventy other Orion women. Were things really looking up for them? "This is Gaila of the ship, Twilight. Our warp drive should be operational again in fifteen to twenty minutes. We should be able to make it to the station you speak of than." Archimedes Remus? She was actually talking to Archimedes Remus!?!?! So much had been heard about the unique man from a system far, far away.
"We are in rush to leave, we shall remain until your warp drive is functional to ensure there is not more slavers lurking somewhere in wait for our departure. Let us know when you are ready, Remus out."
"Hey, Delnora?" Came Kruger's rough voice over the communication system. "Yes?" Her voice would be heard of the comm' system. "Do you think those Orion slavers filled their pants with those first hits to their ship at the aft from us? Like.. 'oh, we're in trouble' kinda moment?" Delnora could be heard in a light laughter, shaking her head with a play of her long hair about her shoulders. "Perhaps, more like 'oh no, it's the Klingons and Archimedes, we're done for' I believe." Archimedes heard them through the communication system and grinned a bit on board his ship. He looked over at his half Bajoran daughter, Shannon Jaxa, at the helm. "Good work piloting the ship. Positioning behind and below an enemy vessel are key to getting ahead in the way of winning a fight." Shannon turned and gave a light smile at her father. "Given the history with the Cardassians and the Bajorans, I don't much care for anyone promoting slavery. They got what they deserved. Death." Archimedes smiled a bit and gave a nod of his head. "Indeed, they did my daughter. We'll have you on tactical next engagement we enter."
Gaila was pacing on board her ship. Wanting the warp drive done being tended to so they could head off to the station mentioned. Though something else was upon her mind now. She was curious of Archimedes and now, seems she had found him. "They say he's a unique species of human. Something not common from many of the dimensions that can open into this galaxy of space." One of the other Orion women looked over toward Gaila. "I heard, these.. Furyans as they are called, are strong as Klingons. Maybe even stronger?" The woman at the helm piped in than. "Some I've heard, can see in the dark better than the light. Can you imagine? Seeing at night in the dark? That speaks volumes of almost predator in nature."
Gaila listened to the others on board the bridge of their ship. She would quietly think on how to better introduce herself to this Archimedes. Perhaps she will have time once they reach the station. Hopefully she wouldn't stumble over her own words meeting him in person.
