1) open with a medium march (red alert!) and it accelerates out the launch tube into the frenzy of a dog fight, then time slows down when your life passes in front of your eyes the background sounds are muted, only to revert to combat speed and salvation when your wing man arrives

3) space/conflict
4) Fire Flight Five

Is there an essay out there on star ship operations (military and commercial)?  Something that covers landing ops at star ports (of varying grades), docking procedures, and the like?
