Scene 4: Abhva ambush!
Our heroic privateers set up an ambush in a dark matter briar patch for an Abhva assault carrier with high attrition fighter complement, and carried the ambush off with aplomb. The provider’s military surplus corvettes were significantly outmassed, and one (the Marru) took a severe beating due to bad luck and suboptimal tactics. That ship disappeared into the cover of the belt mid-fight for emergency repairs, then rallied at the end to deliver the death blow to the enemy carrier.
Now to convince the Governor-Admiral of Betwa to not just tolerate these antics, but to support them!
