Outskirts of the Spartak Systemm Mid R2017
Shulga, Kazakov, Novikov and the rest of the delegation are aboard a small Imperiya fleet and on their way out of the system, on the way home..
Onboard the Battleship Igor Basiltsky, Personal ship of Admiral Kazakov...

Shulga enters the bridge of the Basiltsky,
20180701_220001 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrKazakov: Ahh.. Alex, I trust you are content with today's results?!
Shulga: Eh... I suppose I'm glad we're not dealing with the RC anymore... You ever hear the expression that a hill isn't worth dying over?.. Arhus was such a peice of shit that it wasn't worth the time and resources to fight a war over with anyone.. let alone the Tharcans"
Kazakov: Ahhah... fair enough.... And Lahey Junior?
Shulga: Ordered him on vacation.. he deserves some time off..
Kazakov gets out of his chair and the floor panels open up, the captain's chair sinks into the ground and closes

He offers a glass to Shulga
*The entire ship rumbles and shakes violentley*Kazakov: How about some Bavarian Brandy, should be a nice quiet trip home ... time to celebrate!
Shulga: Sure I...

Zarkharchuk and Novikov barge into the bridge in a panic
20180701_220710 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrNovikov: My lord!
Shulga: What is it?
Novikov: I was going to ask you the same thing.. is the helmsman asleep? look outside!
Violent blue and purple flashes come from outside the bridge
20180701_220319 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrShulga: What of fuck?! We're not...... HELMSMAN, REPORT!
20180701_220945 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrHelmsman: Sir we just made the jump to warp but I... I don't know what happened... the navigation was correct this... this shouldn't have happened
Shulga: Admiral... you're drinking, and there's bottles all over the bridge... please tell me your bridge crew isn't drinking too...
Helmsman: My lord.... I've not had anything sir, I'm sober as a priest"
Zarkharchuk tends to the navigation control center, where the navigator is conspicuously absent
gooks2 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrZarkharchuk: The helmsman may be sober but the navigator sure as hell isn't!
*Alarms start sounding all over the ship
Zarkharchuk: We're seperated from the fleet... Plasma storm... present location is... H-3... Wait..... Shit!... Zarkipatta nebula! oh fuck!
The Basiltsky warped in the wrong direction into the Zarkipatta Nebula, a massive stellar nebula that is nigh unsurvivable for most ships
*The plasma storm overcharges the ships FTL drives and the ship blasts off to the west, albeit much farther than it should have*Kazakov: Navigator! Helmsman! emergency FTL to the west. Now!
About half an hour later

Shulga: Well? where are we?
Kazakov: By my calculation we should be somewhere near the Caspian System.. back on course
20180701_220945 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Suddenley Zarkharchuk exclaims
shul1 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrZarkharchuk: You might want to take a look at this!
In the distance, a dark picket ship in violet markings can be seen
gooks4 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrZarkharchuk: That's a PAC ship! We're under attack!
Shulga: No.. you fucking idiots blasted us right into the Balkani Cluster! And they're pissed... Shields up!
Incoming hail over comms: SAATANA PERKELE GALATU!
The Basiltsky's main deck guns and other chase guns turn in the direction
gooks5 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrTactical Officer: Eyes on one, Armata Coalition Pachenko class destroyer and multiple Strilka and Barsuk fightercraft!
Shulga: BLOW THAT PEACHENEG PEICE OF SHIT, OUT OF THE SKY!
The Basiltsky and the PAC destroyer start firing gauss slugs en masse at each other while PAC fighters close in
gooks6 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrKazakov: Deploy fighters.. Deploy fighters now!
Tactical Officer: Yes sir!
Galacian and PAC strilkas dogfight while the big ships slug it out, Point defence weapons on the Basiltsky do their best to assist the outnumbered Imperiya fighters. Several PAC fighters are destroyed
gooks7 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrStrilka Pilot: There's so many of them! Cyka Blyat!
The Imperiya fighters are wiped out due to inferior numbers, and the Basiltsky starts taking direct hits
gooks8 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrShulga: For fuck sake! why isn't that thing in a million peices?! It's one destroyer! FLATTEN THEM!
Kazakov: BROADSIDES OPEN UP!
Random bridge crewmember: Get ready to eat shit, Cyka!
Dozens of kinetic cannons fire in a massive volley at the PAC ship
gooks9 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The Destroyer is pulverized and then some, blowing up and cracking apart in an instant
20180701_221011 by Dic Jacobus, on FlickrTactical Officer: Pachenko destroyed!
Shulga: Get us the hell out of here before reinforcements arrive
Kazakov: At once!.. Full speed east!..Sublight only!, no more FTL for today.. it's safe to say it's fucked!
Zarkharchuk: Uh... Admiral... I don't think we're at where you think we are
Kazakov: I thought we were in the Balkani Cluster? that's northwest quadrant is it not?
Zarkharchuk: No... We're south, near the Zapad Cluster...
Shulga: Fuck... wait.. what the hell are PAC ships doing out here? this is uncharted space out here, there's little of value out here
Navigator: Sir... the Zapad Nebula.... it's... It's gone..
Shulga: Gone? it can't be gone... We're on the other side of it!
Helmsman: Sirs.. I don't know how to tell you this, but the FTL engine is dead.. and we can't go through a nebula in sublight... we're stuck out here for the time being
Kazakov smashes his glass
Kazakov: CYKA BLYAT!
