For the most part, it had been an uneventful CAP for the first couple of hours. As the Raptor and two Vipers escorting it were completing yet another cycle of patrolling the airspace around Dauntless, the comms suddenly come to life, "CAP, Alert 5, Dauntless Actual, we have a number of Cylon flights on an intercept course for Dauntless. CAP, redirect to grid Alpha Nine-Four, all Alert Five fighters launch."

In the space on the edge of the carrier's anti-air fire solutions is several Cylon fighters - copying the same tactics as the Colonial Fleet, a heavy escorted by two raiders. However, there are other ships - they seem to be getting screened by the fighters. Transports, that are attempting to make their way to Dauntless to engage the ship directly.

Aubrey is on CAP with Jigger of course, and the Picon pilot forms up with her usual wingman easily. "Dauntless Actual, Banshee is ready to intercept," she says over the comm.

"...and then, he travels five days to this remote island where the sky is supposed to be green and the ground blue -- I think it's a deliberate metaphorical swap -- where he sees--" Alain's recounting of one of Apollo's supposed exploits'll have to wait, perhaps thankfully. There's a moment of silence. "Copy that, Dauntles Actual. Jigger heading to intercept point." He glances down at the DRADIS as he swings the raptor around, swearing briefly when he spots what's going on, punching the viper to intercept.

Being on Alert Five, Kell was already suited up and ready to go in case the call came out. He had expected to reinforce a CAP that ran into superior forces, not a scramble to defend their new home. But once the alarm goes off, he grabs his flight helmet and makes his way to his Viper in very good time. Climbing up the ladder with a quick word of thank with the deckie that is assigned to him, he goes through the checklist in very quick order before hitting the button that starts closing his canopy. Once his bird is fixed onto the catapult, it launches him into space, already looking for friendlies to join up with.

Iris is in her favorite raptor, the one that actually has her name on the side. It's not the newest bus and it sure isn't the prettiest by any stretch of the imagination, but it hasn't crashed yet. That's a good bird. She can forgive the dents and the quirks. "Flight, Iris. What's the plan here?" She asks, more curious than concerned as she brings the bus around to stay behind the Aubrey and Alain's vipers. Of course, there's not going to be much time for detailed plan with the interception already underway. She glances back at Paige, grinning, "I'm sure you know the routine, sir."

From behind Irene at the ECO station, Paige was earlier asking about how the table tennis went, but when the alert came up, she turned to business. "Roger that, Iris." she offers quietly over the in-Raptor comm as she starts to bring up the suppression systems. "Let's deal with the heavies. I don't like what they're doing with those transports." she admits as she starts to focus on her duties.

Aubrey directs her bird towards the trio of incoming enemy ships, and she picks a target. With her lack of luck versus heavies, she's zipping in on one of the lights instead.

Double-Tap is in the middle of doing his ECO thing because he's in the Raptor with Link. For some reason being with Link is kind of like Water and Ice. Or something. There's a better analogy in there somewhere. Double-Tap is focused up on his screens and rides shotgun as Link throws the Raptor (they really should name this thing something epic) into classic evasive maneuvers like it ain't no thing. Meanwhile, Double-Tap follows suit with his namesake and double taps those buttons he was born to press.

Banshee isn't playing tonight it seems. The woman flies like Hades himself is on her tail, spiraling in a barrel roll to avoid fire from a raider as she settles in behind the light firing on her wingman. Her KEW fire rakes across the light ship's body and hits something vital, as it explodes moments later. "Jigger, Banshee. That adorable backside of yours is clear."

There's not much choice but for Alain to trail in close after his wingmate. His path is not nearly as reckless as Aubrey's, however -- more measured and deliberate as he waits for a good firing solution. His caution maybe stands him in good stead, since one of the raiders' fire flashes towards him, some of the bullets tearing through his wing, causing only minor damage. With an exhale of breath and a thanks to Ares, he swings in on one of the raiders, his own hit tearing through the raider's cockpit, his whooping call indication of his success. "Nice work, flight!" he calls, as he adds, "Thanks, Banshee." He swings the viper around, looking for another target.

The first strikes of the combined CAP and Alert Five slam into the Raiders and Heavies, tearing into them. The work of Yohan and Paige is keeping the two enemy flights thoroughly distracted, as a pair of Raiders seperate from the transports to try to bolster the lines. "We need to punch through, Iris. Dauntless is reporting other transports closing in on the other side of the ship. The CAP there is handling it, but they have their hands full."

Forming up with another scrambled Raider and Raptor, Kell is in a three ship formation as they move out to intercept Cylons that are mirroring them. This causes the Leftenant to frown under his helmet but he does reach up, by habit, to push it downwards on his head as if to make sure that it is snug. Once they engage the hostile triangle element, Razor's first priority is to clear the Raptor of the smaller Raiders. With the help from Link with his Talons, they pulverize one of the bogeys. Kell then quickly maneuvers behind the second one as the Raider targets the Raptor as well.

The first pass is always the worst. Irene gives the vipers ahead more space and both peel off to take on the light raiders. That leaves the raptor facing off with a heavy from the psycho-robot side, and she knows exactly what that means, missile. They're predictable that way. She aims the bird straight at it like she's decided an impromptu game of chicken is the right move. It kind of isn't, but the course gives her all the time she needs to line up on it and fire a talon at the last possible second and roll the raptor over. She scores a solid hit that rattles the heavy's frame and it's answering missile overshoots and can't correct, so off it goes into the black. "Flight, Iris. Keep it up. Intercepting the transports, would appreciate some cover." She congratulates, but she's already scanning the starscape for the heavy that she correctly guesses will be coming back for more. "Sir, that heavy is going to be right on our tail the whole way, I know it. They hate raptors." She calls back to Paige, but she's already burning hard for the Dauntless and the transports, keeping her eye open for anything between that might want to stop her.

Double-Tap grins to himself with the focus of a thousand gamers or something. "Oh, so that's why they call you the King of Games." "Yes. Yes, it is." Yes, that would be Yohan talking to himself as if he deserves an interview for rocking out with the hotness that he just did. He doesn't even wait before he's gearing up to push some more buttons and layeth the suppression down on some stupid Tincans that are definitely in the wrong neighborhood. "Keep us moving, Link. Hit 'em with the Swiggity Swooty!" Is that an official maneuver? Somebody check the flight plans.

"Then.. I should do something about that." Paige says simply as she rises from her seat, "Double-Tap, Princess. Do take over the jamming duties for me. Iris has a rather unwanted suitor I tend to deal with."

Iris' call for cover has Alain swinging back around from the raider he'd sighted, punching it nearer the raptor. "Iris, Jigger. Watching your tail, looks like you've got a couple on you. Shake it a bit, would you?"

"Nice shooting, Jigger!" Aubrey calls over the comm as the Heavy her wingmate was on goes down. She fires a slew of KEW at the light ship dogging him and grunts. "You still have one on your tail; I'm on it!"

<FS3> Kell rolls Alertness: Good Success (8 7 6 6 3 2 1)

With most of the combat screen crushed, the Transports, a pair of Heavies ladened with troops, are exposed to only a thin Raider screen. Paige is already strapped into the gunner's chair, so continues to engage while waiting for Irene to start their run on the transports. "Fish in a barrel!" she calls up to the front.

Another whooping call marks a direct hit from Jigger to the heavy's nose, as he zooms past the exploding remains of the vehicle. "Iris, Jigger. Heavy down." A beat, before he responds to Aubrey, "Roger, Banshee. Makin' life difficult for them over here," he calls, as he whips around the wreck of the heavy and sights on his next target.

No luck with his shots this time as they only create some holes into the Raider, Kell watches helplessly as the Cylon lands a brutal salvo on the Raptor that is in his element, "Link, Razor, status!" He calls out as he sees the larger craft taking some heavy damage. Gritting his teeth, he continues to chase after the Raider that is on the Raptor though something catches his peripheral vision and he sees that reinforcements has joined, one of the bogeys heading his way.

Iris shakes, rattles and rolls. The heavy she knew would want to chew her up does try, but she's just too slick on the controls and fast with the counter-measures. The missile streaks harmlessly by and she has just enough time to break hard the opposite way to avoid the worst of another raider's kew fire. The shots pitter patter across the nose, leaving a rough pattern of shallow dents in the armor. The rocket she fires in revenge goes just wide as it flips deftly away. Still, she's happy enough, "Jigger, Iris. Thank you! We're taking our run on the transports now." And so she does, it's not hard to put one in the raptor's sights. They're big.

"Princess, Iris, Jigger. Following you in on those transports. Give 'em hell," Alain calls, as his viper falls in behind the raptor, angled directly for those transports.

"Link? Link! LIIIIIINNNNNK!"

Double-Tap moves into double-time to get to switching of the seats. He could probably control things from back here or something but it's more dramatic to actually get Link out of the seat and get back in it. "Okay, okay. Not a problem. Never a problem. Not when I'm on the sticks." Double-Tap psychs himself up with the quickness while he's taking up the controls. "Game on, Frakkers." And now it's Double-Tap's turn to let 'em flyyyyy like an eagle.

"Jigger, Princess. Hell shall be delivered." Paige offers all too delightfully as she's lining up one of the transports in her sights.

Aubrey shoots up the light she's chasing but the thing is still flying, and turning towards the raptor in their little mini wing. "Iris, I see three raiders coming at you. I'm on one of them, but you might want to go evasive."

Maybe hiding behind a raptor as semi-cover does help, or maybe Alain's shifting left and right as fire comes in from one of the raiders and a transport allows him to easily evade their attacks. A few moments after Irene's bus pulls away after firing, Alain drops some KEW fire right down the throat of one of the transports, tearing it apart in a wholly satisfactory way, to the whooping delight of the Gemenese pilot. Hearing Aubrey's call, he winces, pulling around. "Frak, Iris, Princess. Did the deck crew paint targets on you as a prank or what?" he asks, as he targets one of the raiders angling towards the raptor.

Double-Tap's Raptor shakes with the fury of a thousand KEW. But he manages to scramble and keep it steady... for the most part. Okay, well, actually he gets it back steady but that's not the greatest thing in the world. There are more important things to focus on. The wittiness of the banterdom fades in favor of Yohan focusing his attention on the problem at hand and takes to firing off another round.

Iris has apparently coated her raptor in bullet-b-gone paint or something, because despite drawing fire like nobody's business, she manages to fly through it unscathed. She puts a rocket into the first transport, and Alain puts a fiery end to it while she burns hard beyond it, opening it up for Paige to get a shot at the second. "Banshee, Iris. Copy. Good shooting, Jigger! They're going to be properly irate now. We just kicked the hive." To Paige then, she calls back, "Second transport now."

One of the transport heavies collapses and explodes in a brilliant flash of light, as the remaining raiders and heavy attempts to rally around the last transport to see it in against the Dauntless, braving it's anti-air fire, and using the CAP screen as some cover as the two wings continue to collide. Over the comms, comes an announcement. "All Marine teams, fire control teams to decks 6A and 5A. Repel boarders! Repeat, repeal boarders!"

Apparently, somewhere, one of the transports managed to get throgh and is pushing Cylons into the ship.

Another light splattering of autocannon rounds on the Raider's hull, Kell is not able to dispatch the Cylon, but he did manage to pull the bogey's attention off of the wounded Raptor. Now it is a duel between himself and the very feisty hostile that just won't go down. With the lack of atmosphere and gravity, more maneuvers are available between himself and the Raider he is locked in battle with. Guns flash again, the cannons roaring to life once more, spitting oure more rounds.

"Iris, copy that, engage the transport, I'll try to keep our boys back here busy." Paige offers quickly. She doesn't have a bead on the transport, so she's firing at the Raiders attacking them.

Aubrey is still chasing the squirrely raider she's been on for a bit, and it continues to evade her shots. "Shifty little bugger!" she mutters, trying to keep on it.

Yohan spends a luck point and is back in the fight!

"Did they give us styrofoam ammunition, Iris?" Paige asks in mild disgust, as it seems that she's hitting the target time and time again, but doing very little damage to it. "We should have a maintenance check when we return to hangar. Give another run of it, I'll keep these buggers busy."

Seeing the Raptor take another bad hit, Kell quickly calls out over the comms, "Double-Tap, Razor, fall back to the Dauntless and return to base! Giggles and I will cover you!" When the Raider he was engaged with suddenly changes vectors and goes after his wingman, Razor is on the comms again, "Giggle, Razor, my bogey is heading your way, heads up." He gives chase and is now covering his fellow Viper.

It'd be an awfully pretty lightshow, if the lights weren't potentially lethal and travelling at high speed towards Irene's raptor. There is so much kew fire it's practically ridiculous, three Raiders all set upon her as she takes her run at the second transport. She certainly proves she's worthy of her master pilot wings on that attack, somehow making that flying pillbox snap and flip out of harm's way with some artful use of her landing jets. Unfortunately, with that much to evade, she doesn't have time to really line up on the target or give Paige much of an opportunity to clean any of the raiders off either. It's a small miracle, but she does at least put a rocket into the side of the transport before having to break again. "Sorry, it's hard to-" Beat, hard break, "Shake them and get a good shot at the same time. I'll try another approach."

One definitely gets the feeling Alain's enjoying himself over there. After evading more fire from two different directions, there's another whoop of delight as the raider he was targetting goes spiralling away and explodes after a direct hit from Jigger. Nearby, he spots a raider headed directly for him, altering his path to meet him.

Yohan's Raptor is getting rocked like a funky joint. There's clearly too much damage being dealt to this thing but he's got a trick or two up his sleeve. A few reversing of polarities and a dilithium crystal or two later and the Raptor is still managing to not crash and burn and explode into a fiery ball of dead Double-Tap. Eyes narrow with fury and he tries to get a bit of a better shot. This time.

There is a stream of very unlady-like curses from Aubrey as she barely scratches her target, and takes a dink from a transport for her trouble. "Switching targets. Jigs can you put this one to bed for me?" she asks over the comm.

There's a trading of fire between Alain and one of the raiders; thankfully Alain comes out on top, albeit with only a side-swipe of fire to the other raider. Before he manages to swing around for another attempt, Banshee's call has him altering his path towards the raider that's been evading her, "Banshee, Jigger. It'd be my pleasure."

"Got one.." Paige starts to report to Iris, and then it seems, the entire damned wing turned on her. "Careful what we wish for Iris, our dance card is suddenly full. Evasive!"

Irene's raptor is looking like a bear who stuck their paw into a beehive. The raiders keep swarming after her, swirling and diving, kew fire licking through the space in pursuit. Somehow she keeps from being shredded, always one step ahead. "These toasters are persistent." She notes, slightly exasperated now, especially after her attack misses thanks to a last second need to twist the bird out of yet another spray of fire. "Banshee, Jigger, Iris. We're getting mobbed here." Incase they hadn't noticed. She tries to shake a few off, but they know exactly where she's going - the transport.

Unable to land a solid shot again, Kell can only give chase to try to keep the Raider off of Giggles. Pulling his flightstick back, he climbs a bit before inverting and diving back down, giving himself a bit more distance with his target so he can make another attack run. There is a few pinging as the Heavy Raider bears down on him, rounds just glancing off of his armor for the time being.

Double-Tap keeps the Raptor afloat, even still, but still tries to fire off some of these dang Talons. Things are frustrating for the gamer because his competitive side is starting to take over and thus he's mashing buttons instead of actively trying to do anything with a focused and steady hand. He keeps getting blasted on. It's like one of those annoying Boss Battles with a side of CHEATING. He's even biting his lip. Hard. There may be blood in a second.

"Iris, Jigger. Just, you know, pull your wings in or something," is Jigger's not-so-helpful-advice. "I'm on one, just hold tight." It doesn't take much longer -- made easier because he's not currently being shot at -- before his KEW fire rips through the raider's wing, sending it into a deadly spin before it explodes in the distance. Jigger's whoop is quickly followed by, "Iris, Jigger. Keep doing whatever you're doing! Coming in after that other raider."

Aubrey sweeps in on the transport and her fire barely scratches the thing, but she's not stopping yet. Watching the explosion of the raider she'd been dogging, she grins. "I knew I could count on you Jiggs," she quips over the comm.

"Giggles, Razor, Thanks for clearing my tail." Kell says as he notices the Heavy Raider that was on him being effectively removed from the furball. He continues to go after the Raider that he is on, gritting his teeth as he continues to give chase.

Iris is raider catnip, they just can't get enough of her. Does it matter that Jigger is merrily peeling them off one at a time and exploding them? Apparently not so much. They've got a hate on for the raptor, or maybe they know Paige is aboard. "Flight, I'm finishing this transport off." She calls and that's it, she lines up and burns for it, readying a rocket for an express trip up its tailpipe.

This time, Aubrey's shots at the transport decimate things inside of it, as it begins venting stuff all over the place. Then Irene finishes it off. "Good shooting, Iris!" she crows over the comm.

With the last of the transports destroyed by the combined actions of the wing, a call goes out over the comms. "All wings, Dauntless Actual, RTB." comes the order to return to base. "SAR will be sent for recovery." is also added as the last Raider breaks off it's attack after the transports are destroyed to start to limp away.

"Nice work flight," comes Alain's delighted praise moments after a whoop as the raider dogging Irene and Paige's raptor explodes, soon after the transport. "Roger Dauntless Actual, Jigger returning to base." He forms up near his wingmate and the raptor, sticking close to them as they head for the Dauntless. "Hope the marines cleaned everything out, I'm really looking forward to hitting the showers."

"Double-Tap, Link, Princess. Report, over. Do you require assistance?" Or recovery? That's left unsaid by the proper ECO as Paige's rounds tear through a Raider, ripping the pilot's head off. Apparently, Paige has little love for the machines that bear her family's name.

"Game over for me, Princess. I'm headed back to the Castle." Double-Tap sounds more upset that he's having to get the heck out of dodge than actually scoring any points. He's focused on evasive maneuvers again to get the heck out of dodge.

"Finally! Goodnight toasters. Nice work, Flight." Irene cheers, pumped enough to spray chrome into her mouth and yell for a witness while she goes for more transports or raiders, or a base star. Unfortunately, Dauntless calls the return before she can go on a full rampage. She raises a victory fist, finally able to stop white knuckling the controls for a second. "Flight, Iris. Let's cover Double-Tap and Link." She reorients herself, and turns the ship to try and spot the stricken raptor while gliding wrong-side first into formation with Alain and Aubrey.

"No need to be so melodramatic, Double-Tap, recovery is en route." Princess Paige responds, before turning her attention to Irene. "Perhaps you should make him part of your next great adventure." she comments as she moves back to her ECO console.
