Redwood’s medium-range protecting missiles and lasers all started the relentless, grinding means of hacking Hammer missiles out of the assault, the gap among the ships filling with the violent flares of exploding missile warheads and fusion energy crops. the space among missiles and goal narrowed, the salvo a stressed and chaotic cloud seeded with decoys meant to make sure that sufficient missiles survived to ruin Redwood.

A unmarried missile slipped previous Redwood’s defenses.
