"What the Feth?" Trowa's eyes widened in disbelief. "Sacred Feth!" His hand tightened on the trigger and send a deadly stream of energy at the nearest target for 2 heartbeats then banked off. Moving with automated speed, Trowa armed and deployed a decoy device to help scramble signals. He had no idea if there were actually four ships out there or if it was some decoy device of its own but Trowa chose the ship that was moving roughly in the direction of the Away Team as his first target. He got a visual then had to dodge around a big piece of debris before continuing after his quarry.

Trowa's burst of weapons revealed something about the object. The object he fired on continued moving, but portions of it were missing. Not as if it had been vaporized, but rather something that resembled solid light.

"Beta team lead to Overwatch 2. We have run into a problem. The holes in the derelict have force fields. Not sure if its an emergency system to protect people on it, or a defensive system to keep us from getting in." Gi linked to the Beta team and downloaded their sensor data. Analyzed the data. The amount of energy in those shields were far higher if it was just to keep the atmosphere inside. "Beta team, advise to proceed with caution. That derelict has more power than expected."

Arashi was checking his sensors as he approached his objective and stopped, seeing shields in gaping holes of the ship. "Alpha leader, are you seeing these shields? Energy output is massive and I am not sure if it is meant to keep us out or to keep something in. Advise caution and keeping your eyes on a swivel." He said and looked around.

This mission was getting crazier and crazier. Trowa checked his scanners again. The mystery ship he had tracked was still broadcasting the same energy signature, but his shots should have left a trail of debris at the least. He was getting very tired of this thing. He lined up for another shot and this time fired a much longer flood of destructive energy towards the target.

"Alpha leader, we are seeing shields. But there seems to be different kinds. Some just luminescent. Others solid and can't be seen. Like an emergency repair system. We are moving in 2 by 2 through the corridor. The corridor is huge, You could put large objects like a fighter or tank in them."

With the prolonged burst energy caused the solid light. Several of the barriers failed. The section was also venting atmosphere as debris started streaming out of the damaged section. An object was ejected with the debris, but it appeared to be a piece of ordnance. The sensors identified it as an active nuclear device.

Just when he believed things couldn't get anymore crazy. Trowa didn't even have time to swear as he pulled his fighter back to put distance between himself and the nuke. He looked at his sensors to get an overview of the whole area. Where had the other 3 mystery ships gone? Was the nuke following him? Was it a threat to the Away team?

"Away team to Aeon, we have a problem. We have an active nuke in the area. Please advise." Yoshiro said as he flashed a picture of the device to the ship/
