Note: The Touch-And-Go is being "painted" by six other ships, which of course means that their active targetting systems (including, but certainly not limited to radar) are targetting the ship.

Captain Tagon: TAG, Get us out of here!

TAG: Indeed. It appears that our presence and safety are mutually exclusive factors.
