Herrith headed out to inspect the perimeter and set the fighters ready. He has been on Ord Mantell on numerous occasions but wasn't familiar with anyone among the troops. "I hope they did not hand me over a bunch of moisture farmers," he thought.
Fighters appeared to be in good condition and ready for battle. The station was well positioned to allow the fleet to break any wide formation easily. This would be a skirmish of small-sized fighters, not of Star Destroyers.
The Sith should bring a great many fighters to breach this defense.
Herrith set off to brief his squadron leaders.
