Considering it was an anonymous call with little/no credibility (what pirate would be foolish enough to attack Kuat?) no reinforcements are called in. However, the defence fleet and station, including the shipyards was put on a higher alert level, in case an attack did indeed happen

Due to the heightened security level the station is now required to send a ping to the nearest system's station (in this case Balmorra) every galactic standard for one week, if this is failed to register, it reinforcements will be called in instantly. Also certain Imperials are informed of the message, including the pirate task force.

The Carrion leaves hyperspace some distance away from the station but close enough to begin jamming communications and sensors.

As a result of the jam the ping is unable to be sent off-world, meaning reinforcements will be sent in soon. The defence fleet, which is standard for an imperial high security world, is already in motion, forming up to defend the most important ship yards against the aggressor.

Due to the electronic warfare the Imperials are operating completely blind. Their readings indicate that the Carrion has vanished from its position and been replaced by nine different unidentified spatial objects appearing all over the area.

Despite all of this the imperials are trained for such an event, taking formation around the shipyard closest to the original signal (would have taken time to initiate jamming/cyberwarfare). multiple fighter squadrons are scrambled to quickly discern whether the new readings are real or not, while the main fleet stays put. these ships then return to relay the result.

By now its getting close to the next scheduled ping, and soon reinforcements will come in.

The Imperial fleet is unable to locate the Carrion and finds that the phantom sensor pings are false once the starfighters get in visual range. Imperial sensors once again pick up multiple encounters on their sensors, four this time.

after returning and confirming that the signals were faked, the fighters were redeployed towards the new ones, just in case it really was reinforcements this time. The remaining fighters were deployed to form a fighter screen in front of the fleet.

by now the missed ping was noted, and the pirate task force was notified form Balmorra.

"Hey Pain!" Saryn yelled

"what have you got?" he replied

"Seems Kuat is being raided by pirates. Turns out the guy giving the tip wasn't lying."

"Damn, there's only one pirate I know crazy enough to try that."

"Mikal?"

"Mikal." Pain confirmed. "Send a message to Nym, this may be the opportunity we're looking for. I'll mobilize the fleet."

"On it."

With that Pain set a course for Kuat, hoping Nym can meet in time.

Once again the starfighters arrive on the locations and find nothing there except this time they are ambushed by pirate starfighters.

The Sleight of Hand jumps in at the edge of the system, away from the fighting. Immediately, they're bombarded with the fake sensor pings. Raptor sits back. "V? Cut through this crap."

Vendetta's own cyberwarfare suite is able to counter the Carrion's own ECMs, and in a few moments the battlefield becomes clear. ""Hold off on sharing that info," Nym says. "Send a message to the Carrion. Let's see how well this works."

"Open a comm channel," Raptor orders, nodding to one of the Sleight's officers.

Nym walks forward, hoping the pirate lord will listen. "Lancer Mikal. Out of curiosity, what the hell are you trying to prove with this stunt of yours?"

The fighters don't take very long to react to the attack, and return fire on the pirates. The problem with this is was that the fighters would then take too long to respond, which would cause other ships to break off. eventually four corvettes broke off to each go to one of the four locations. If they failed to return then the fleet would break up evenly into five groups. One staying with the shipyards and the rest to investigate the blips.

The anti-pirate taskforce will arrive soon.

The Carrion does not respond.

Meanwhile the pirate starfighters continue to fight the Imperial TIEs.

Nym sighs. "Suit yourself, mate." He nods to Raptor.

The Imperials become aware of the position of the hostiles, Veritas collaborating with Vendetta to completely break through the Carrion's cyberwarfare suite.

The imperials suddenly find themselves regaining sensor capabilities, and seeing that the fighters are engaging pirate fighters. The corvettes are ordered to assist anyway. With this new development the Imperial fleet calls for The Carrion surrender, they considered doing the same for The Sleight of Hand, but their sensor indicate it is not with the Carrion based on its positioning.

The Anti-pirate task force enters the system to find Nym and the defence fleet currently in a stand-off with the Carrion. A transmission is sent to the Carrion, which would also be picked up by Nym and the fleet.

"Lancer Mikal, this is Pain of Rancor Squadron. Power down your ship and surrender immediately. Perhaps then we wont obliterate your ship."

The Carrion powers her engines and moves toward the planet. It is out of range of the of the Imperial station and forces. Whatever pirate starfighters remain break off from the dogfight and head towards the Carrion.

The Sleight's stealth systems keep it from both Imperial and pirate detection. They tried to play their card, but Lancer didn't bite; it's the Imperials' move.

"This isn't right," Nym mutters. He had expected his tactic to draw Lancer out, but this is suicide; it's completely out-of-character for him. When the Carrion hasn't responded to his message, he thought that Lancer was just not in a talking mood. But now he's starting to suspect something else.

"Pain, I don't think Lancer's on the Carrion," he sends the message to the task force. "Stay sharp. I think this is a diversion."

Pain saw the Carrion's next move, and frankly was somewhat surprised.

"What the hell is he doing? Mikal is supposed to be smarter than this, unless..."

It was at this moment he realized something was very fishy. Lancer was one of the best at covering his tracks, getting in and out without so much as a peep. now here he was making a suicidal charge against one of the most heavily defended planets in the galaxy.

He then received Nym's transmission, further adding to his suspicions. He then sent a transmission to his task force.

"All ships, pursue and target the engines, we need to bring it to a halt."

he then hailed the defence fleet, requesting the aid of their fighters and bombers. The fighters currently in a skirmish pursued the pirate ships all the way to the Carrion, taking out as many as they could. The corvettes on the other hand retreated to the defence fleet, being at greater risk if they got too close to the providence. Bombers and fighters from both the task force and the defence fleet deployed to attack the carrion, with the fighters focusing on the enemy fighters and the bombers focusing on the engines. The defence fleet stayed put while the task force tried to catch up in order to open fire on the engines.

The Carrion begins to plummet into orbit and through the atmosphere, heading towards one of the cities on Kuat. Starfighters that originally had launched from the Carrion ignore the Imperial strikecraft and begin their attack runs on the Carrion itself. Escape pods are launched from Lancer Mikal's Providence and flagship.

The ship diverts all power to rear shields and weapon systems letting gravity do the rest to send it down and keep the Empire away.

"What the hell?" Nym asks as the Carrion flies towards the atmosphere, heedless of the defense fleet and task force moving to intercept it. This is the Empire's fight now, but he doesn't doubt the defense fleet would do its job.

OOC:
from your previous comment ori it was unclear that the ship was not actually moving towards the shipyards/ space station, if i had known i would have made the defense fleet move to intercept in my previous turn. I will treat this turn as if i did.

IC:
"Oh ****!"

Pain was shocked at this new development. While the task force was catching up it was still having little effect due to the shields. The fighters and bombers were doing there best against the pirate forces. Pain the defence fleet was also closing in, trying to do as much damage to the ship as they could, hoping to break up the ship into smaller pieces so the planetary shield doesn't have too much trouble.

Pain opened comms to the defence fleet.

"Listen, we need to slow that thing down! have all ship engage tractor beams and try to pull away fro the planet. Have the bombers do as much damage to the ship as possible."

The task force did the same thing as well. Pain had no idea if this would even work, no-one has tried to use tractor beams on a providence before, and he had no idea if it even had a chance of succeeding. He then contacted the city.

"You need to evacuate now, this is an Omega situation. I repeat, Omega situation! Engage the planetary shield... and one more thing..."

One of the hypervelocity guns on the city targeted the Carrion, and a hole in the shield was opened to allow it to fire, hopefully enough damage could be done to break it apart, especially due to the lack of shields. After the gun fired the shield would be back to full strength

The city scrambles transports in all directions to avoid the crashing Providence and, although slowed down somewhat by the tractor beams and the Hypervelocity Gun which tore over a quarter of the Carrion's port bow, the vessel impacted the planetary shielding. The shield takes the brunt of the damage as the Carrion shatters under its own weight and the force of the impact with smaller chunks being broken off and tractor beamed away by the Imperial warships.

Transport vessels continue to evade the warzone save for several media starships and curious civilians. Most however move away in every direction possible including through the Empire's Pirate Task Force and Kuat's Imperial Defence Fleet.

Whatever pirate starfighter remained broke off and attempts to escape the entire ordeal.

Nym sits back as the Carrion is destroyed. Something's not right. "V, track those escape pods and give the locations to the Imperials. This isn't over yet."

Vendetta tracks small objects that may have split from the Carrion during its descent, checking for emissions to confirm a potential escape pod. These locations are relayed to the Imperials, just in case they don't already have the information; the fact that they're receiving the locations of the escape pods should at least highlight the importance of recovering them.

Description

Some time ago the Galactic Empire was contacted anonymously that there would be a pirate raid conducted at Kuat.
