Excerpt from Gateways #4 by Keith R. A. DeCandido
THE DELTA QUADRANT
"Shields one and two are now down, shield three is buckling, and warp drive is down!"
Controller Marssi of the Malon supertanker Apsac snarled at Kron's report.
For years, she had heard stories of this ship and its strange alien crew. Some had called it the "ship of death." At least two other Malon export vessels had encountered it, and neither had come out of the experience intact.
Now it was attacking the Apsac. They'd already been forced to drop out of warp, dangerously close to a star system. Marssi had no idea what had prompted the attack, nor did she care. She just wanted it to stop.
"Return fire," she snapped, moving from her small circular console in the center of the bridge to Kron's larger one against the starboard bulkhead.
"We have been," Kron said. "Our weapons have had no effect."
Marssi rubbed her nostrils. The smell of burning conduits was starting to fill the bridge. "I take it they aren't answering our hails?"
