Aboard the leading ship for group one, the Light Frigate, the Captain presses his hands together as he thinks. It's a habit he picked up ages ago on his home planet and only serves to stop him from fiddling with the control board idly.
He seems to decide what he should do, then he presses a button on the control board. Immediately, a hidden holographic projector starts up without a noise. A hologram of the other captain, a female, pops up.

Captain Arlo: "My Comrade, I hope you have noticed the disturbances on the scanners?"
Captain Sa'riz: "Of course, Comrade. My eyes have been glued to the scanner results ever since we warped in."
Captain Arlo: "That cannot be good for your eyes."
Captain Sa'riz: "Now is not the time for jokes. We need to decide what to do."
Captain Arlo: "Well, there is obviously no point going straight towards the direction of the unknown area. That is pure suicide."
Captain Sa'riz: "I concur. What do you propose we do?"
Captain Arlo: "I was hoping you had enough braincells to work it out yourself."
Captain Sa'riz: "May I remind you..."
Captain Arlo: "No need to go on a tangent, we need to focus."
"There are a couple of unknown contacts. They could be the 'Mechanicals' or they could be friendlies. Or debris of either. There's one right next to the second group."
Captain Sa'riz: "I concur. We should investigate the contacts before we dive into the unknown spot. Oh and by the way."
Captain Arlo: "Yes?"
Captain Arlo: "Don't mess this up like you did on our last mission."
The hologram clicked off at this. Captain Arlo snarled just after it clicked off, a snarl different to what one would expect. His tongue clicked a couple of times, but he stopped, composed himself and then switched the Comm Frequency to the other ships.
The second group Xor group deployed their scouts first, which lead the group. They sped off towards the first contact, the one just in front of the planet. Close behind, some of the fighters followed, while the rest of the ships gathered around the Frigate and escorted it towards the point. The first group followed, to the Southwest of the second group, relative to the light Frigate.
