*Holk had just landed in the docking bay of one of the destroyers when the shockwave of the blast slammed into the destroyers. The shields were overloaded from absorbing the force of the energy, and turned off.
The shockwave past the destroyers, only moving them a little. The Quantaum armor protected the ship. They only needed to recharge their shields and the destroyers would be ready for more combat.
The Frigate, was outside of the effetive range of the shockwave, and the shields held.
With the threat temporarily over, the Destroyers take defensive positions. The Fighters return to their respective ships.*

As Odin says in the Hovamal:
"Praise no day 'til evening; no wife 'til on her pyre; no sword 'til tested;
no maid 'til bedded; no ice 'til crossed;
no ale 'til drunk."
