This is SNN (Sol News Network with a Emergency report.

Currently unknown ships are heading towards earth, Sol System forces are responding. 

Reports are that civilian shipping is burning from orbit in case they are attacked.

All across earth people watch as ships race to the heading of the enemy to engage.

What's the order of battle?
" Why is this godforsaken hellhole worth dying for? "
". . .  We know nothing about them, their language, their history or what they look like.  But we can assume this.  They stand for everything we don't stand for.  Also they told me you guys look like dorks. "
"Stop exploding, you cowards.  "

Based on announcements in the Security Council Meeting thread:
EU: 9 gunboats
FSA: sensor ships and patrol craft (undisclosed number?)
RUS: a couple sensor fighters and 5 beam fighters
NAU: 2 beam frigates

Pirates: 8 unknown ships (FSA intel says at least one has carronades)

NAU intel reports that the pirates have shooty bang-bang zapow guns of some kind, which can kill people.

Our experts recommend shooting them until they stop shooting back.

What's the order of battle?

Earth Defense

NAU - 2x Union class ships
FSA - 5x scipio africanus B, x4 scipio africanus, 1 lifeboat
EU  - 9x Richelieu
RUS - 4x SU-4, 1x KA + a dozen fighters deployed near earth for missile defense


Red Duncaites

8x Pirate ships of three classes - all appear to be Plasma armed. 

So far, sensors show 1 pirate and 1 union at zero speed.

Right now the NAU forces are fighting the pirates, the EU will arrive in a few minutes, and the FSA will arrive a few minutes after that.

Good thing they didn't have missiles, or this could have been a lot uglier for us.

If the NAU was aware that the pirates had no missile, the NAU wouldn't have done a Leeroy Jenkins and charged in out of formation. Live and learn.

Always fun with some space war. OOC I think the Red Duncanites have been a nice addition to the game, they caused problems for both player empires but in different ways.
