Hey all, Raptor here.
HTL continues with "Finest Hour", the fifth story in a series about the big Finale battle which is written by yours truly. As you saw in previous stories, what had been expected to be a mopping up operation had suddenly turned pear shaped. The Combined Fleet had been forced to scramble its fighters as news filtered through of a powerful new enemy force bearing down on it, and its commanders had been left searching for some way out of the situation. This story picks up from there. Your comments and feedback are much appreciated.
On another note, HTL celebrated its fifth birthday this week, having started publishing stories on 28th January 1999. In that time, HTL has gone from being an underdog storyline comprised of mostly unknown writers to being the Aces Club's main story effort. It is now close to 90 percent complete, and currently publishing its final battle arc.
