The Tavros team quickly advanced through the Dreadnaught. Any resistance they found were either quickly cut down on or riddled with blaster fire. When they finally got to engineering Aylin had the task of first opening the heavy blast doors that they had closed to keep the invaders out.
Plugging her spikes into the system, Aylin quickly started to work on the door’s security systems. As she was working the pressure on the others to keep her safe increased with each reinforcement that arrived at their location.
“We can’t hold them off all day, Aylin,” Zentru’la urged her.
“I’m doing my best!” Aylin said as she ducked from a stray shot coming her way, “Seems they updated their systems since last time, though.”
As Aylin kept slicing away, Ankira, Zentru’la and Meleu kept fighting off the reinforcements. Meleu was often a blur with a streak of red weaving between the incoming guards while Zentru’la and Ankira released salvoes of blaster fire at them.
“Yes! I’m in!” Aylin yelled above the blaster noise and the door that hissed open.
Pulling the spikes out of the controls, she tossed a flash grenade inside as shots started to pour out the room.
Ankira quickly followed inside after the grenade exploded and took out the few people inside within quick succession. “Clear!” she shouted and the rest quickly followed inside.
Aylin hurried over to the larger consoles and stretched her fingers, a big grin starting on her lips as she started to type away at the console and plugged her spikes into the system again.
The others closed the doors and set up a defensive line. Zentru’la glanced towards Aylin and saw the determined grin on her face and the furious typing on the keyboards and panels.
“Will she be able to get control of the ship?” Meleu asked.
“I’m sure she will, she knows her way about computer systems more than anything,” Ankira replied. Even though she didn’t know her that long, she had seen more than once what she was capable of.
Aylin kept frantically typing away at the station, a few mutters and Nautolan curses escaped her lips more than once, but finally she had the ship in control.
With a wide grin she looked to the others. “First mate reporting for duty, sir captain Zentru’la. Where do you want this baddy to go?”
“Do you have control of everything?” Zentru’la asked as he turned towards her.
“Of course… except the living things. Droids and the likes can be used as well by me.”
“Turn those against the crew of the ship and undock it, we are going to join the party.”
“Right away,” Aylin said with a chuckle and typed away again.
“And that is why I don’t trust droids,” Ankira muttered as she heard panic erupt from the other side of the doors.
“When in position, open all cannons at the other dreadnaughts,” Zentru’la ordered.
Giggling, Aylin cheerfully replied, “One large firework coming up.”
Typing away, the cannons turned towards the other dreadnaughts and one huge fire salvo erupted from theirs, hitting the closest one full in the flank of the dreadnaught.
