Competition: [Unsteady Ground Phase 2] Decapitation Strike

Finished
[Unsteady Ground Phase 2] Decapitation Strike

With the conflict heating up on the surface of Chyron, Caelus' capital moon, Council President Kain Eriston has fled for the relative safety of Sentinel Station, the Golan Space Defense Platform in geosynchronous orbit above Chyron's Imperial Sector. Conveniently, the Eriston-aligned Caelus Patrol Fleet is headquartered above the same platform, and the Taldryan Summit has ordered the platform captured in order to cut the head off the snake. The Caelus Patrol Fleet has anticipated the move, however, and has has deployed two of its Raider I-class corvettes to augment the two squadrons of TIE Interceptors normally based on the station. In addition, the Caelus Security Force maintains one line company aboard Sentinel Station to provide security for the platform.
