Alas, Aramond, the poor TSN Hunter was not fast enough to pull away from a rather one-sided affair with a Pirate Axe class. R.I.P. brave scout ship.
Fleet command have assigned the experimental interceptor, TSN Lancer (IX-001) to take her place for the time being. Hunter’s crew made it to the life pods and are now working up doctrine for the new vessel. This has led to some hilarity, for example having to politely decline a request for an echo run due to a permanent lack of ordnance launch capability.
