Here is the opening live set
By the time the fleet of the Red Rectangle arrived Dalia had the massive Biofreighter, B3G-3776 only turned a third of the way she needed to make the jump safely. She could chance it and jump without a plot, but that could end in an unfortunate kinetic event as well. The Beeg as the ship was affectionately known was not defenseless and fought with the precision of a finely tuned, high performance Ballistic Biovatar. Lasting just under seventeen minuets, the tragic war of attrition would ultimately have the Beeg’s defenses overwhelmed with the fleets sheer numbers and although several lifeboats were able to make it safely away, they were all quickly picked off and destroyed. Dalia, a few terrorized crew members and the hulking wreck of B3G-3776 jumped haplessly toward Hydra’s Alphard without complete computations as a last resort…

Arriving mostly intact at Alphard was a lucky break, but after disengaging, the damage to the enormous Biofreighters reactors was apparently fatal and the beleaguered Beeg was being drawn inexorably in toward the stars gravitational well. Dalia immediately ordered the remaining crew to abandon ship in the last remaining lifeboat. These were more than friends, they were family and the parting was heartbreaking. This ship had been their home and livelihood for hundreds of years. It was a legendary vessel, they had seen many a world transformed, thousands of settlements secured for their people. If there was any hope of saving it, it would be tried, she said her goodbyes and went to work as she drifted toward the stars corona. But alas, once they the plasma had engulfed the hull there would be no saving the Beeg, or Dalia, they would once again become stardust.
