Admiral Galt agrees to a meeting on his command ship, where our heroes discuss details of an assault on the Phorlorn orbital base in Nylig. Concerns are expressed on both sides about operational security. The crew of The Queen agree to surrender themselves to Goshi military custody following the operation for a term not to exceed 3 months.
Admiral Galt assigns 2 Heat Waves and a Torpedo ship to the anti-air squad, and a First Strike escort vehicle and 2 boarding vessels full of marines for the actual assault.
The remaining Phorlorn vessels in Nylig are destroyed at the cost of both the Heat Waves.
