|High Admiral Nasatweed Tan stepped into the Hanger, nodding as his eyes fell on his destination.
An Imperial TIE Interceptor.
He had challenged Zekk Alvarion to a duel in the skies, and that's what this would be. The man's claims would be laid aside as false, or be proven in Tan's own fiery demise.
The man's measured steps took him to a locker, just to the right of the Interceptor, and he began to rummage through it, pulling out a flight suit.
He moved again, stepping into the flight suit, while an attendant did in the straps, sizing it appropriately. Apparently the man didn't know of Tan's history as a fighter pilot, before he'd risen to become an Officer, and then a High Admiral.
After fitting the helmet, and running through the status checks for the rebreathers, Tan nodded, and stepped into the life-support-less Interceptor.
The Space Superiority Fighter began to start up, the engine whining slightly as the repulsorlifts kicked in. This particular Interceptor had been equipped with an ejection system, luckily, they were capable of being equipped, and with no loss of performance.
Tan had thought of equipping it with a jamming beam, or even a decoy beam... But no, Alvarion would think that dishonorable, and Tan himself thought as much. He would kill the Radical on his own, with no support.
Initially Tan had been setting him up, with a contact, non-Imperial, going to come to the drop-sight, and follow their vectors in on the approach. But that had been called off when it became a matter of Admiral Tan's honor.
Now the Twin Ion Engines whined higher as he exited the hangar, coming into deep-space.
[Click-click]"Vengeance 4, this is TIE 3, approach vector 331999, requesting permission to dock for travel to Nespis VIII.[click]
[Click click]TIE 3, this is Vengeance 4, blue clearance granted. Approach approved, Admiral.[click]
The man nodded, and flew in towards the Vengeance 4, where he would be docked, and the ship would be gone over for last minute checks, as the Vengeance flew to Nespis VIII.
Vengeance 4, High Admiral Nasatweed Tan, and TIE Interceptor en route to Nespis VIII.
High Admiral Nasatweed Tan,
coat ee cha tu doo (Yah wah!)
celebrate the might (Power!)
Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
never begins it, never, but once engaged...
never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage
