Then they were hit !
Was this the end of our heroes?
They drifted right towards their goal ! Attached the umbilicus & got aboard. Some sneaking , fierce fighting & they were back to their goal which was the recovery of the computer cores from the USS Thumis
One is the external core that has been added & the other is the original ship's core still on the bridge.
What their not aware of this that not only is their ship attached to the Thumis, there's a skeleton crew aboard, & the whole ship is being run by an M5/ Interocitor combo running the entire ship!
Things are about to get mighty interesting for my group of intrepid space smugglers! MUHAHAHA
These are the voyages of a band of PCs on a trek to who knows where?
Why deeper into the Talon system of course! I've got you now my pretties!
