“Lightning Strike 1 to all pilots, enemy spotted, tally ho, tally ho!” Merl Rexin sent his X-wing interceptor screaming through the vacuum towards the unsuspecting rebel x-wings. Weapons blasting, he blew one to pieces before they even knew he was there.
“Splash one! Don’t let any get away!” He kicked his fighter into a tight turn, and then flipped into a barrel roll that dropped him directly behind another rebel fighter. As the x-wing filled his sights he fired, green light scything into the shields, dropping them before the pilot could do anything to correct them. He laughed as more of this shots burnt through the x-wings fuselage, blowing the cockpit out in a shower of sparks, glass and human remains. An ace five times over already, he lined up on his next victim.
