HistoryEdit

In the Ghorah Khar system Maverick and Hobbes flew in Rapiers. During their first patrol patrol they encountered Kur Human-Killer.[2] Later the pair protected and escorted Bonnie Heather and its captain, James Taggart to the Concordia.[3] Later they joined a pair of patroling Rapiers and defended the Concordia, before flying to save Olympus Station from a Kilrathi strike force.[4] on their way back, they defended the Station once more before returning to the Concordia.[5]

Later in the Tesla system, Maverick flew with Stingray. During a morning patrol they found the Bonnie Heather under attack and they escorted it back to the Concordia.[6] Later they destroyed a couple of stray Dorkathi-class troop transports, along with with their escorts[7] and later they escorted the Bonnie Heather to a jump point out of system and aterwards they scouted a region occupied by a Fralthra-class and an escort wing led by Khasra Redclaw.[8] Shortly before leaving the system, the pair, as Bravo Wing, flew against a strike force that attacked the Concordia and then escorted the TCS William Tell against a Ralatha-class, before leading it to its jump point.[9]
