About this creation
Listen to this music video whilst reading this for full epic effect!!
Whilst undergoing refits, a band of raiding pirates boarded the empty Rising Sun and tried to make an escape. seeing as the Sunrise was undergoing major upgrade work and wasn't even flyable, and the corvette goblin had bit the dust already, the only other ship in orbit stands in the raiders way of freedom - New Dawn
realising their freedom may be slipping,the raiders open fire, and a fight ensues. New Dawn's shields are under a nearly constant onslaught of fire, with missiles arcing in it's general direction. it's own missile targeting array is hit, making it impossible to launch missiles. they wish to retake the Rising sun anyway.
The Shots are repelled by the Battleships superior shields.
beginning to burn, the New Dawn tries to draw alongside.
fire begins to spread around the ship, but still not a major blaze. the Rising Sun adjusts it's position as well.
Another ship-ship missile is launched from the battleship, towards the ever - weakening New Dawn
The missile streaks towards it's target.
the missile darts past the fire defence and through the failing shields.
The impact causes a huge rupture in the ships hull, and explosions begin to take their course.
as the Rising Sun makes it's getaway, it fires it's main battery one last time into the burning frigate.
The Shots finish the ship off, and a huge explosion tears open the bridge and crew section. the crew went down with their faithful but aging ship. Footnote: 3 days after this event occoured, boarding parties managed to regain control of Rising Sun, and it was returned to finish it's upgrades.
