"Tug-87, return to your station immediately," ordered the CEF controller. Calvert opened her eyes, squinting at a small Remora-class tug that had broken away from the pack of support craft lined up outside the shipyards. Refusing to answer the hail, it abandoned the standard space lanes and fired its maneuvering jets, orienting itself towards the immobile destroyer. The controller repeated his demand that the ship halt, but instead it accelerated, veering towards the impotent warship. Point-defense lasers stabbed out at the craft ineffectually.
"Acquire that target!" shouted Calvert, but already the data scrolled onto her display, courtesy of Maxwell-class gunner Soldier Krupp. "Fire!" For an instant the Arclight and the tug were connected by a stream of particles traveling at relativistic speeds. The rogue ship was reduced to a cloud of superheated debris, clattering harmlessly against the destroyer's hull.
