Hmm…there are very few ways this works out well for the Countess, regardless of what she does next.
If she shoots Xani, Tempest happens.
If she shoots Lakkat, Chukkat, Xani, and / or Derrum happens.
If she shoots Rova… probably nothing happens because Rova is an AI designed by a weapons designer and thus probably more battle hardened then she legally should be.
Thoskard having survived the explosion and shooting her seems like a possibility.
There are no good options, but at the same time she’s bluffing… they just don’t know it.
