The entire command bridge was silent, save for the whir and beeps from the equipment and the holo screen, as all eyes were cast on Hawkes as he fired a burst on Irons. Would he succeed? Would Irons fall, and Black Team win, or would Red stand triumphant?
The air felt still as every crewman held their breath. The moment of truth. All eyes on the screen. Walker, McMillan, even Inquisitor Fierstrom, were watching the holo projector intently. Time seemed to slow as Hawkes fired... two went wide, and two found their mark, but...
That was it. Game. The entire bridge was in an uproar. McMillan was yelling at someone. Apparently he lost a bet. Fierstrom was in awe. Walker simply smiled.
"I can't believe how close that was" the Inquisitor said. "Walker, did you see that?"
"Heh, of course I saw. Why are you so surprised? Wasn't it you yelling at Evergrad about the virtues of humans?"
"Oh yes. I've got one more surprise."
