Once upon a time, there was a nasty Kilrathi carrier that launched wave after wave of fighters and bombers. Since it was very annoying, a young excalibur pilot figured "hey, I could just go and kill that thing on my own". In order to ensure that nobody would be able to kill him while he was shooting the carrier, the excalibur pilot decided to hide in the fighter bay.
However, things could still get hairy, as some of the fighters' turrets could still shoot him while taking off, so the confederation pilot hid in one of the alcoves, matched the carrier's speed, shunted all available power to its guns and started shooting. After a couple minutes, the player controlling this pilot was starting to get bored, and decided to have a look at what was going on outside. It turns out that even though the carrier's escort group couldn't actually hit the excalibur,
it didn't prevent them from trying to shoot him down anyway
. The player thought it was hilarious.
(On a side note, this tactic doesn't actually work, the Kilrathi carrier is guardianned at 43% hull.)
