Observation Deck, TCS Concordia. JAZZ
Maverick. What a pleasant surprise.
Why'd you do it, Jazz?
How could they convince you to betray the Confederation?
I didn't betray anyone, you fool.
You betrayed ME!
You let my brother die, you son of a bitch!
What are you talking about?
Ten years ago, the Kilrathi attacked Goddard Colony.
The Tiger's Claw was supposed to defend those people.
But you detoured to attack an enemy troopship!
My brother died with everyone else on Goddard...
...all because of you, you and the Tiger's Claw!
I swore I'd kill everyone on that damned ship---
And I nearly did. Spirit was so easy...
...and I only had four to go ...you, Angel, Paladin, and Maniac...
You're one sick bastard, Colson.
If I had my way, you'd be dead now.
But even that doesn't begin to pay you back for what you did.
They'll court-martial you, and find you guilty...
I just wish I could be there to pull the trigger.
Briefing Room, TCS Concordia. ANGEL
The Kilrathi are launching their assault against the Gwynedd system, pilots.
This is the last human-controlled system in the Enigma Sector.
The fate of Enigma Sector, as well as our homeworlds, depends on this battle.
I will personally lead the main force to defend Caernarvon Station.
But before the defensive force departs---
---we'll launch five Sabres to fly escort ahead of the Concordia.
At the Nav point, you will break into separate patrol routes---
---then return to the Concordia.
Colonel Devereaux, I request permission to fly with the wings to defend Caernarvon.
I know this system...there are a limited number of approaches to the station...
Permission denied. The Admiral requested that you fly escort.
Maverick, you're dismissed. Prepare for immediate launch.
Five minutes later... SPARKS
Captain Blair! Your Sabre's ready for your patrol...
Refit that ship with torpedoes, Janet.
That's not in the mission outline...
It has been changed.
I'll also need a new flight disk---
---with the navigation data for the Gwynedd System.
Are you sure about this, Maverick?
Janet, Tolwyn's wanted me off his ship since Caernarvon...
Now I'm going to give him a reason.
Rogue Sabre, this is the Concordia. Return to base IMMEDIATELY.
You know me better than that, Major Edmond.
I'm going to stop the Kilrathi from destroying Caernarvon---
---and there's nothing you can do about it, ma'am.
Tolwyn will fry you for this, Captain!
I'm sure he will. AFTER I take out that strike force!
I'll tell him, Maverick. And...for what it's worth...good luck.
Thanks, Major. Blair out.
My lord! A single human pilot has attacked our forward patrol---
---and is now heading towards our fleet's position!
Maverick. I will deal with that insignificant pest.
Ready our fighters to attack Caernarvon Station---
And maneuver the Hha'ifra to an intercept course with Maverick.
I will take care of Maverick myself.
As you wish, my lord.
Concordia, this is Captain Blair.
Reporting two Fralthra and several wings of fighters destroyed...
As well as Prince Thrakhath.
Outstanding! I'll tell the others.
You're cleared to land, Captain.
Good work, sir!
Flight Deck, TCS Concordia. ANGEL
Maverick, you mad fool! You were magnificent!
That's my job.
Blair! You have a lot to answer for, pilot!
Disobeying orders, dereliction of duty---
---theft of Navy property, endangerment of personnel...
Nice work...Colonel Blair.
I never thought I'd say this---
---but I'm proud to serve with you on this ship, Maverick.
Thank you, sir.
I have new orders for you, Christopher, and you'd better not disobey these!
Report immediately to my personal quarters, with a bottle of champagne!
Aye aye, ma'am!
Three cheers for Colonel Blair!
