Chelek Vart, FreeRunner and, most recently, captain of the mistrunner Delisantros, did his best to keep the Xangoran vessel on course out of the gravity well of the planet.
In all of Mistspace there were few vessels more heavily armed or armored than a Xangoran dreadnought, but, in gravity, they handled with all of the speed and grace of a Troloskan pond scummer.
His first mate, Jalondo Tresk, looked decidedly worried, “Uhh…Cap’n, you have actually flown one of these accursed beasties before, yes?”
Though Tresk had served him for years as an able second, Vart scowled nevertheless, “You can question my piloting skills or you can get below decks and disable the transponder Tresk…your call.”
Though he was sure naught good could come of stealing a Xangoran dreadnought, Tresk scurried off to do as his captain, and only friend, required.
