Dorat feels like objecting to the Admiral's statement of "I hate to send you on a suicide mission but I'm going to send you on a suicide mission." but something about the gruff determination in the Admiral's voice makes him think that a light hearted approach to this situation would be frowned upon so instead he listened to the others formulate a plan that he figured only he would remember and attempt to actually carry out once the blaster bolts started flying.
Renk nods in agreement with Naru. "That's exactly what I was about to ask," Renk says with a slight grin, "Maybe we can get an idea of what we're up against and how to prep if we know what has been thrown at this facility so far."
The Admiral turns his gaze away, and appeared to be reading off something just out of sight.
"Parts of the 56th Airborne we sent in," he begins. "A CR90 corvette with a wing of seven T-65 starfighters and three BTL bombers. Four five-man commando units were on board for ground support. They had orders to retreat if their assessment of the situation suggested a no-win."
"Two Aurek-class recon fighters were sent in seven hours later to investigate. They had orders not to engage."
"I'll reassign forces to that sector based on your recommendation, but I can't divert more resources without some solid intel. If there's room for a rescue and recovery, you'll have the backup you need."
"You know guys, I really liked that Admiral. He had a certain warmth that only comes from swallowing sandpaper between sentences. Also, he's sending us on one of the more suicidey suicide missions we've been on so that's nice. Shall we head out?" Perhaps it was all those years reporting to Rynah but Dorat had learned to both sarcastically disrespect and never question those in authority.
