Chapter 5 – The Killing Fields

Chapter 5 - The Killing Fields

Corval escapes certain death to lead Nova Squadron against a Tarthet strike force.

[LOG ENTRY]: Maybe I’m not seeing the bigger picture here, but what the hell was Kevin thinking?  Did he honestly expect that I’d just leave Redline to drift off after she got hit?  Screw that!  We’ve already sent one of ours on his last flight, and I’ll be damned if I let another one go down!  Okay, so I’m attracted to her.  So what?  I’d bet next week’s chow ration he feels the same way.  That still doesn’t have any influence over my refusal to let another member of Nova die, and as the squadron’s second, I would argue that’s my job.  Maybe Corval thinks my motivation for breaking formation was primarily selfish, but he’s wrong, and at the end of the day, he’s going to have to admit that it’s probable she wouldn’t be around to give me grief over it too if I hadn’t.
