The Battle of the Crown Nebula was a tactical engagement between forces of the Alliance of Planets and the Tigris Draconis Confederation. The TDC flagship Sword of Vengeance, accompanied by a Reaper class cruiser, the CSS Arclight, arrived in the area and were challenged by the Alliance battleship Concordia.
The Concordia left the space station monitoring the region to investigate hyperspace wakes detected by the station.
"Attention, TDC warships, This is the UES Concordia. This sector is under Alliance jurisdiction. Withdraw at once, or we will open fire."
Ignoring the threat, the TDC warships opened fire on the battleship; the Sword of Vengeance fired three antiship torpedoes, which slammed into the Concordia's bow.
The two TDC warships moved to bracket the Concordia, trying to corner the capital ship.
The Concordia closed on the TDC heavy cruiser, concentrating her fire, overloading energy shields and blowing the cruiser in half. With one target taken out, the ship sped past the collapsing hulk and swung around, engaging the Sword of Vengeance.
The two capital ships remained locked in combat until Alliance reinforcements arrived, in the form of a light cruiser, the UES Nova.
The Nova opened fire as soon as she came within range, overloading the battlecruiser's aft shields with a photon cannon shell and damaging the aft starboard engine and aft beam cannon.
"Captain! incoming torpedoes! They came out of nowhere, sir!"
"What?! Point defenses, stand b-"
"************......***.******yday mayday, this is the Nova we are going down! *****peat, we are going dow-****"
Concordia sensors officer: Captain! TDC reinforcements! Oh my stars, it's a Hellfire-class missile battlecruiser!"
"Correction! Two Hellfire-class battlecruisers, closing fast!"
TDC reinforcements, in the form of the missile ship CSS Midnight Stardust and CSS Warspite arrived on scene. Midnight Stardust Captain: Target the Concordia. Fire all tubes! Buy the Sword some cover, people!
The missile battlecruiser flushed her tubes at the battleship, and the Concordia sent three torpedoes of her own at the new arrival; however, all three were shot down before impact.
With heavy damage to all systems, the battleship withdrew, conceding the fight, realizing how outclassed she was against the finest war machines built by human hands.
Seemed to me there weren't enough brick wars involving starships, so I felt the urge to do one myself on afternoon. Enjoy! And please feel free to leave comments!
