As the Hexagon cruises towards Tuco's base, Uni notices a small irregularity in the stars beside her window.
"Scout," she says, "is it just me or are there two Andromeda galaxies out there?"
Scout accesses the outer camera to see for himself.
"Agreed." he says. "That is highly irregular. Running advanced sensor scans now."
As the scans go over that section of space, an image appears on Uni's HUD.
"Scout... it seems to be a ship. Some sort of modified Kestrel! I'm trying to read the insignia on the side... it seems to say 'The Flying Fortress'."
"Hopefully they're ready for a fight." Says Scout over the intercom. "We've got Tuco now, and nothing's gonna stop me from going in for the kill."
Uni smiles and exhales silicon smoke. "Let's do this."

"Fire! This is it, no getting away this time!" Scout says over the hail, remembering his last encounter.
The Hexagon's weapons let loose, but nothing hit the enemy ship.
"Darn. Must've gotten a bit more agile-HEY! Cloaking is NOT allowed!" Scout barked over the intercom, "Uni, make sure they don't cloak. I can't let him run again!"
"Again?" Uni asked.
"Stories later. For now, focus."
The Hexagon's weapons fired again, damaging the cloak.
"That should delay them long enough," Scout hastily said, "Get them in the engines!"
Another wave of firepower hit the Hexagon, disabling their shields.
"Darnit. Don't change our target, Uni." Scout
"WAIT!" Sounded over the hail.
"And what do you have to say?" Scout asked, stopping the weapons form firing although they were fully charged.
"There isn't good or bad. There's just insane."
"Blamsauce!"

"Shields damaged!" Gumpo yelled from the shield control room.
"Cloaking damaged..." Zen said.
"Ok, fire the Burst Laser II at them." Genson shouted back to Zen.
"Got it!" Zen replied, and started powering the weapon.
"I got the Shields back to three layers.." Gumpo said.
"Ok, now start repairing the cloaking!" Genson ordered."
Then, Genson tried to hail the somewhat hexagonal ship. "WAIT!" the hail read.
An AI came onto the screen. "What."
"Why are you firing upon us?" Genson hailed.
"Because you're pirates." The AI hailed back.
"No we aren't.." Genson replied.
"Wait, you aren't?" Another crew member (Uni) of the ship asked.
"We aren't pirates! Stop firing on us!" Genson yelled onto the comm system.
The hexagonal ship stopped firing upon the Flying Fortress.
"Who are you?" Zen asked as he beamed upon the ship.
"I am scout." The AI replied.
Genson then beamed aboard the ship. "Hm..don't you look somewhat familiar?"

"Did I not before?" Scout asked.
"No, not really.."
"You said you weren't a pirate. Two questions: 1. What are you then, and 2., Why were there PIRATE markings on your hull the last time I saw you?"
"The Flying Fortress is a merchant ship. We updated it to be more stealthy."
"A merchant. Interesting... Well, sorry for the inconvenience but you really should've repainted your hull sooner."
"Well, it's repainted now."
"Hm... What's in store?"
"There isn't good or bad. There's just insane."
"Blamsauce!"

Omacron 6
1 year, 1 hour and 16 minutes prior to launch of hexagon

"Scout A.I. Reduction of piracy necessary."
A small whirring came from the A.I.'s machinery room walmartone.
"And what am I to do with this?" The robotic form said in its manufactured tone.
"Human error in piloting must be avoided. A.I.'s lack mistake."
"So you want me to pilot a ship going on a suicide mission to reduce all forms of piracy?"
The engi at the meeting room of the colony fell silent for a moment.
"I'll take that as a yes."
"Affirmative." The engi said, reluctantly.
"Darn you and your political ways- or more, lack of them."
The engi continued on, pretending not to mind.
"The ship that will be used, X-65_MC, is designed for use of firepower-"
"Nope. We're using my ship." The A.I. hastily interrupted.
"H-EX_B lacks sufficient ion and drone usage."
"And the X-65 lacks any sort of hull-damaging weapon that's not on a drone."
"The X-65_MC was designed for-"
"For use of drones. I know what the darned Torus uses more than you do."
"Negative. Such information is only accessible to worthy forms."
"One, that was hilarious. Two, it went in the database."


Thanks for the great feedback.
