The recovery of the Northampton was proceeding without further incident.
Although the pirates had managed to arrive before the DC fleet, they had only really managed to remove what wasn't bolted down and were unable to gain access to the ship's computers yet, thus the spread of information about the technology of the ship was prevented.
Interrogation of the Endra's crew revealed much the same. It had been chance and a black market info tip about a possibly valuable wreck in the area that led them to the derelict ship.
Unfortunately, the survivors of the Fandom attack were long dead from their oxygen supplies running out on them. The bodies were in the process of being identified and sent over to the Salvation
for proper burial and notification of any family members.

It had taken several weeks, but finally the Grey Wolf
was again ready to head into space. And this time she would be far from alone.
She would be escorted by 6 Clop
class cruisers each equipped with the latest mobile suits that had just been rolled out from Federation factories.
Each Clop carried 3 Heavyguns and one G-Cannon in their hangers, a vast improvement over the performance of the larger Jegan models.
The Grey Wolf
herself was also well stocked. Returning to join Maarek Stele and his MP Nu Gundam were Maria and Mallia Felps along with their Wildrabutier models as well as Alex Smith and his machine. Also in the hanger were three Jesta
model mobile suits. Enhanced versions of the Jegan used by special forces units, they managed to achieve a performance level on par with the new Heavyguns.
Finally, Rawn had the latest units constructed out of the technology gained from Lunar Corp: The VF-17 Nightmare.
2 D model units
and one S model
were on board piloted by "Diamond Force". A trio of elite pilots chosen from the best Thunderbolt pilots the Federation had. Rawn's impressions of Kinryu, Docker, and Physica were favorable and he was confidant that they would be a valuable asset when they went into battle.
Soon the fleet was underway with simple mission orders: search and destroy any Fandom fleet or installation they came across.
