“Mayday! Mayday! The USS Short Lived is under fire! Our armour is barely holding up and we are in need of urgent assistance!
I don’t care what he says! I want to survive this!
We are in need of immediate help! If anyone can hear this, please come to our aid as soon as possible!”

*BOOM*

Oh god… That’s cadet Blunaire and he’s… Somebody help him!
We currently have two ships… no wait, three ships orbiting our position! They are too far out for our guns to hit and our drones are being destroyed as soon as they get in range. Our Captain is doing his best but even he is showing strain under the pressure.
We are under strict orders not to contact anyone at this time as the captain is adamant that he has everything under control, but I do not have faith that we will survive this.
He’s bleeding out! Get that man to the medical bay!”

*FOOSH*

“Now there are drones… there are so many drones! I’m not sure how much longer we’re going to last!”

*BOOM*
*KSSSSHHHH*

We have a hull breach! I repeat, we have a hull breach! K’unarch, seal that bulkhead now!
We have little time left! Our casualties number in the thousands and many more people are dying as we speak!
Please, we need someone! We are good men and women, we don’t want to die!”

*KABOOM*

End of transmission – Ship destruction at 19:25
Survivors – 1

    Very nice work.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure how to put the survivors bit so it's obvious that only the captain/pod pilot survived.
