The Galactica has jumped away from the Frak Up Sit-Rep between her and those unknown Caprican Centurions from the Caprican Fifth Fleet that was trying to initiate First Contact that went wrong.
“Prep FTL-jump, commence combat landings. Jump when ready.” It was the only order Bill could give, they had no ordinance, and only half of Galactica’s squadrons. Galactica hadn’t used her FTL-engines in more then twenty years, though they had gone through regular maintenance and checkups. At this point, with eight nuclear armed strikestars seemingly barring down upon them, it would have been the right choice even if the engines hadn’t undergone any maintenance.
The vipers came in hard, and once they were back in the barn the flight pods began to retract. It was the longest minute and a half in Tigh’s life, sitting there and waiting for those strikestars to fire. A few concentrated salvo’s from those guns would smash Galactica apart, and there would be nothing they could do about it, just sit there and take it.
There was a brief moment as his heart stopped, a feeling of weightlessness as the entirety of Galactica lurched upwards and ceased to be. His eye’s widened as he tried to suck down air, and he was completely unable to. Pure primal panic flowed through him and every muscle in his body tensed up.
Gravity returned and he had to steady himself to avoid smashing into the deck. Reality flashed back into focus.
