After sending over the Penal Legion to rid the Sable Mistress of any resistance, Victris took Aquila, Luthor, and two chosen security guards selected by Aquila in a skiff to claim the Emperor’s Bounty. Pooling their skills and knowledge, travel through the debris field was a minor challenge.
Luthor docked the skiff in the voided launch bay of the Emperor’s Bounty. Aquila deployed his security guards as an escort for Victris to the Bridge. Leaving none behind, they all left for the bridge. The ship was desolate with vast sections opened to the vacuum. It was unknown what caused the ship to open up like such but it seems to have been sudden and a global event across the entire ship as it appeared none had survived and all died without being able to reach a void suit. Oddly, all the emergency bulkheads were open; typically in a void rupture they slam shut to protect the crew.
The group reached the command section of the ship to find it sealed with an atmosphere. They soon arrived at the bridge to find it sealed. Finding a manual lever they opened the door to find the inside scarred from las bolts and bolter shells. Bodies lay strewn about the bridge as it appeared the hundred or so individuals who manned the bridge were dead. Stepping over bodies, Victris approached the captain’s throne.
