The Allied fleet departs Deep Space Nine.
As the fleet arrives at Chintaka, a Steamrunner
class vessel can be seen entering the frame.
The Cardassian orbital defence grid.
Hugely outnumbered, the Jem'Hadar employed the tactics of desperation...
...including ramming the Klingon squadrons en masse.
Initially the orbital grid was off-line, and the weapons platforms
made easy targets.
Once the Cardassian defences became active the battle began to
swing against the Allied forces and heavy damage was suffered.
Here the USS Valley Forge takes heavy damage.
An Akira class vessel is destroyed.
Fortunately for the Allies, the USS Defiant was able to fool the
weapon platforms into attacking their own power source.
The asteroid based power station takes a pounding from its own systems.
Defiant pulls away as the asteroid power source is destroyed.
The remaining systems proved easy targets for the remaining fleet units.
