Seeing the great ship fall was a surprise, but the fact one of the guests shot it was another. The three people on that ship showed different emotions, each vastly different. The blond young girl simply cried while the man next to her simply yelled in a outburst of rage. The cloaked fellow, however, simply remained quiet, oblivious to the others remarks, deep in thought.
So, this is how it would end. The Phoenix's downfall by the hand of another mighty ship. It's captain and it's crew to suffer because of an illusion of fate. Troy, where ever you may be, rest in peace.
The cloaked man walked up to the controls and sent a signal to the ship that fired the mighty blast, making sure his companions were silent before sending the boarding request.
