Jyot guided a levi-trolley through the crowded streets in the Corellian sector. He was coming back from his shopping spree purchasing parts for the Scimitar--some spares but mostly the replacement parts he needed to fix Arelyn’s turret controls. He had probably spent more than Alec had intended him to, as he had been preoccupied with thoughts about Ali’s arrival, but at least he hadn’t got any of the dodgy/second hand parts this time.

“Why?” he grumbled aloud to himself as he walked. “Of all the pilots in the Galaxy Alec could have hired, he hires her. He could have hired anyone—a Wookiee, a Trandoshan… but no-ooo. He goes for a Corellian. And not just any Corellian, oh no. He’s got to hire a female. And not just any female, no. He’s got to hire one that I’ve had a past relationship with, one that I haven’t seen in years and throws a right hook like a professional…. ” A passer-by gave Jyot a strange look as he sidled past him. “What?!” Jyot snapped at the man. “When your captain hires your ex-girlfriend to be the new pilot of your ship, see if you don’t complain a little!”

As Jyot rolled his eyes, the man gave Jyot a look and continued on his way. He soon reached the ship, loaded the trolley up into the cargo bay, took the parts he needed to fix the turret and headed up the ladder to the upper decks.

"Twenty minutes," Ali murmured as Alec departed. "I'll have a course ready by then..."

She devoted her full attention to the map, murmuring suggested routes and then shaking her head. Avoiding Imperial patrols was the trick. Were it not for that little comment, this would be all too easy. But it was a challenge and she loved a challenge. Then it came to her.

"Genius!" she exclaimed, grinning. "Even saves on fuel..." Leaning forward eagerly, she tapped seven waypoints and memorized the coordinates for later entry into the navicomputer. Then, she leaned back and gingerly propped her feet up on the control panel, careful not to touch any of the controls. Now, she'd relax here until the meeting.

"But I'm not going to go easy on you, so be prepared."

Latch shook his head. "It's times like this I wish I was a masochist," he muttered to himself as he trudged up the ramp. Entering the cargo bay, he heard clanging noises coming from above, meaning Jyot was probably back and fixing the ship. That also meant Alec was probably back as well with a new pilot. He made up his mind to head to the cockpit once he was done delivering the supplies to the medbay. Trotting deeper into the cargo hold, he made for the ladder in front of the quick-drop bay, tossing a wave at Kuun as he ascended.

Hoisting himself up through the hole in the deck, he hefted the bag and strode into the medbay. Stitcher was poring over some weird-looking instruments and bubbling chemicals, his goggles over his eyes. As Latch entered, he craned his head up, the opaque lenses making him look like some sort of strange alien bug. "Do you have my supplies?" he asked the raven-haired gunner.

Latch swung the bag down from his back and placed it none to gently in front of Stitcher. "Should be enough drugs in there to knock a bantha out, cut it open, play sabacc with its intestines, then sew it back up again."

"Lovely," Stitcher said, already rifling through the bag. "I take it you acquired them without any problems?"

Latch snorted. "You can't go anywhere on Nar Shaddaa and not run into problems," he told the medic matter-of-factly. "But Arelyn took care of it."

Stitcher raised an eyebrow. "She's all better then?"

"Oh yeah, she's fit."

"Good, one less thing to worry about then," Stitcher nodded, extracting a few pouches from the bag.

"Alec find us a new pilot?" Latch asked, leaning inside the doorway.

"Yah," the younger man replied. "Seems nice enough. Pretty too."

Latch hesitated. "He found us a female pilot?"

Stitcher shot Latch a glance. "Duh. And I'm pretty sure Jyot's already made a pass at her, so get to the cockpit and let her shoot you down too so we can all get that awkward part over with."

Latch stalked forward and tousled Stitcher's hair with his hand. "Y'know kid, for a young'un, you sure are a wiseass."

"Can't really help it, Latch," Stitcher replied. "Not with you and Jyot on board. And especially since I think we're now heavy three Corellians on this rig."

It took a few moments for Latch to make the connection. "Our pilot's Corellian?"

"You're quick," Stitcher said dryly.

Latch hefted a roll of bandages and chucked it at the medic as he exited the medbay.

Alec walked out into the common area and smiled to himself as he approached the small bar area. He poured himself a drink of some Zeltron cabble Juice, it was a blue liquid, highly alcoholic and very expensive. The mercenary would often pour himself a glass and anyone who cared to join him after they got paid for job well done.

The money they got wasn't reasonable for the trouble they went through to get it. Never the less the drink had become somewhat a tradition over the years he worked hunting, so he enjoyed his drink.

A few good things did happen this day and maybe that was worth celebrating, he did actually get paid which was a plus, they found a new female pilot who was unlikely to be pushed away by the horny mechanic and they may have a job with the biggest payday ever.

Still smiling he took his drink and sat down at the main table and decided to contemplate his next steps.

After stowing her gear in her room, Arelyn headed for the refresher, intent on getting a good shower in before the day was out. Bacta worked wonders, but it wasn't exactly her favorite smell. She'd have showered at the clinic, but she didn't like feeling vulnerable out in public.

Finishing up, she dressed quickly into a tank top and black slacks and headed for her turret. Now that she wasn't a walking bruise, she wanted to see exactly how bad her gun emplacement had been hit. Entering the override code for the door, she stood back as it slid open, revealing the inside of her turret. Nothing looked too out of place at first, so Arelyn took a few cautious steps inside. As she neared her seat, the damage to her guns became apparent. The side panels and parts of the ceiling were scored blackish with plasma backwash and a sweetly acrid smell emanated from the machinery below her control yoke. Crouching down, she ran a finger over the fried power couplings and frowned at the black residue that accumulated.

"Bloody pirates," she muttered, placing a foot on the side of her turret's base, then swinging her leg up and over the barrel, straddling it. Reaching up into a recess in the ceiling, she brought down the back-up diagnostic panel and brought it online. This was one of the Scimitar's many little quirks, as the screen for the panel faced away from the gunner's seat, forcing anyone who wished to use it to sit on the gun barrel itself and lean forward to see it. Jyot had promised to rectify that for her at some point, but had never gotten around to it, since it was just the backup panel. She wrinkled her nose at the main panel off to the side; the screen was cracked and half the keys were missing from the instruments.

She clucked her tongue, pulled a hydrospanner out of her pocket and began to tinker.

"Bucking for my job, are you?" Jyot stuck his head up inside Arelyn's turret, and then revealed his recently-purchased replacement console assembly and waggled it in front of her. "If you're going to tinker around with stuff, you might as well make yourself useful and...."

He gave the gunner a quick once-over, his eyes not really lingering on any particular body part, and then frowned slightly. There was something different about her.

"...install... this, say, you change your hair or something?" he asked, looking slightly confused. Then a spark of realization flickered in his eyes and he uttered a slow, "Oh, I know what it is." He nodded in casual approval. "No bruises. It's a good look for you."

Placing the new console on the deck, he gave the damaged one a surveying look next, tutted, then reached up, grabbed it and unceremoniously ripped it out in its entirety. "Not even anything there for spares," he grumbled. His eyes narrowed. "You know, Arelyn, it's a very good thing, a very, very good thing, that you weren't in the turret when this happened. You'd've had a lot more damage than just bruises."

He wiped a finger across the soot on the side of the wall, tutted again, and then swore. "Kriffin' pirates. Just what I wanted to do today--refit power conduit and control panels." He let out a small sigh, then grinned at Arelyn. "Though if you want to assist me I'm sure the job would go twice as... oh." He shut his mouth, then nodded with acknowledgment. "I know that 'look,'" he said pointing a finger at her, his eyes locked on hers. "Seen it twice today already, and... well, not that you don't look stunning when you're getting irritated, but...." He rubbed his chin. "I really don't want to get slapped again today."

He ducked out of the turret. "I'll replace the panel once the crew meeting is over," he called up to her. Then he stuck his head back in. "Oh, you did know there's a crew meeting in the common room, right?"

Yikes! The 'look' again. "Right. 'Course you did." He ducked out again. "I'll save you a seat," he called over his shoulder. "I might need protection from Ali," he murmured quietly to himself.

((occ- Well two impatient people have Pmed me to get this thing going so I’ll do a twenty minuets later and presume everyone is in the common room.))

With everyone Gathered around the large table in the middle of the Common room Alec stood up and picked up his datapad and handed it to Jyot to look at then pass it around.

“Ok I’ll start this off by introducing you guys to our new pilot, She’s Alindra D'Ayarra and from what I hear she’s good. You guys can get to know her later but right now we need to get to business.” Alec begun with a grin. “As you can see I got a message form an acquaintance of mine, An Abyssin that myself, Jyot and Latch had helped out a couple years ago. The message is about a possible bounty. It’s a Jedi Ladies and Gentlemen.”

Alec paused for a second knowing it will cause a stir among the group. “Now I normally wouldn’t trust the Cyclops as far as I could throw him but the chance to get the biggest payday of our lives is an opportunity I’m not willing to let pass me by. But this much money is high risk and as I said I don’t trust our contact, so if anyone wants out, go now.”

Once again Alec paused and waited to see if anyone would leave, he sighed in relief when he noticed no one was going to leave. “Good, We’re going to Bryndar, A backwater rock of ice that is of no importance. It has a small imperial garrison but they are paid off by Hutts who use that world as a safe zone for their employees with bounties on their heads. We’ll land on a small Settlement that use to be used for miners before they abandoned it. There we’ll try to find out a more exact location for the Jedi…. Any Questions?”

"Sure, I got a question," Ali said. "Have you ever seen a Jedi in action? Because I have... and when they're expecting something, which you gotta assume most Jedi these days are, it's damn near impossible to get near them... let alone capture one. So do you have a plan for this? Way I see it, you're gonna need one hell of a plan to pull this off..."

From where he was flitting around the chairs, Zip spoke up, "Undesignated Bounty Alindra D'Ayarra, we are professional bounty hunters. And while you may be immune to my hypnocane darts, surely the percentage of beings in the galaxy who can withstand a dosage of the tranquilizer such as you did is very small."

"Hypnocane would only slow a Jedi down a little," Ali countered, glaring icily at the droid. She looked around at the rest of the crew. "How much do any of you know about Jedi?"

"I can't believe ol' Squinty Eyes wouldn't try and go after this bounty himself if the payoff is as big as you say it is," Latch spoke up from inside the doorway to the main corridor. "Though I suppose if it's a Jedi we're talking about, even he probably couldn't grow back what would get cut off."

"How much do any of you know about Jedi?"

"Admittedly, not very much, Miss D'Ayarra," he responded easily. "But they don't know very much about any of us." He smiled and cracked a few knuckles.

Ali rolled her eyes. "Smartass," she muttered. "Real big advantage that gives us. We got what, two gunners, a medic, a mechanic, captain, fighter pilot, and me? Oh, right and some hypnocane-happy droid. Against one Jedi." She shook her head. "I'm not satisfied. Planning's important. Jedi'll get away... or worse if we don't have a good plan."

Latch laughed and shook his head, sending long black hair waving around. Stalking up next to Alec, he threw a hand over his captain's shoulders and turned to look at Ali. "I can see Alec has been neglectful in his duties," Latch said, smiling. "He didn't tell you anything specific about any of us, did he?" He pointed to the datapad that was being passed around. "Nothing beyond what's on that.

"Let me give you the 'real' rundown of who we are." Latch reached over with his free hand to cup Alec's chin. "Our intrepid captain may not look like much, but behind this stubbly exterior lies on of the keenest tracking minds in the Galaxy. Don't believe me? We were in the in Wild Space once and he found me a restaurant that cooked braised nerf filets when I had an absolute hankering for some." He grinned at the betrayed look on Alec's face and laughed again. "If that isn't genius, I don't know what is."

Latch pointed at the Headhunter pilot lounging in one of the chairs around the projector. "Kuun over there is a crack shot, almost as good as I am."

The silver-haired pilot snorted. "You mean 'better than you are', Latch," he said.

"Mmmhm, sure," Latch replied demurely. Turning back to Ali, he said, "I don't think Jedi are trained to dodge sniper shots and Kuun is one of the best I've seen." He held up three fingers. "Not to mention that Kuun isn't going to be the only one shooting. I'm pretty decent myself and our other resident female," he gestured over to Arelyn, "could shoot a tick off a Dug's nose. When she's not blowing up her turret, that is." Latch glanced over at the Mistryl as he said this and sure enough, she was staring at him hard enough for him to feel holes being burned into his skull. He shrugged off that uncomfortable feeling and continued on. "She also wrestled a Togorian down to the ground with her bare hands and held him there long enough for me to incapacitate him." He nodded at Arelyn, who seemed just a bit more appeased at his compliment. "Not an easy thing to do."

Latch strolled over to Jyot and threw his arm around the mechanic's shoulders. "Jyot here you already know, so we'll just skip him," he said, throwing an apologetic look to his friend and ignoring the elbow thrown into his ribs. "As for myself, I'm ex-CorSec, so I know a thing or two about apprehending tough collars. Haven't notched a Jedi in my belt just yet, but there's a first time for everything."

He looked over at the young medic. "And if all that's not enough to convince you, Ali, then just know that whenever we capture a successful bounty, Stitcher here cooks us up some mighty fine Karkan ribenes, complete with Corellian seed poppers." He shot Stitcher a grin. "Oh and he's a pretty good medic too."

Turning back to Ali, he flattened out his grin and addressed her in a serious tone. "We know what we're doing, Ali. Believe me, we don't go into things half-arsed. You signed up to fly with us, so give us at least some credit and time to prove to you what we can do. How about it?"

((Well the forum deleted my last post so I hope I remember what I typed.))

“What my Cocky Gunner is trying to say in his own special way is.” Alec tried to translate the point from Latch’s defensive rant. “We’re Professionals and we’ve been doing this a while and we are pretty good at it.”

Alec took back the Datapad and placed it on the table. “Chances are this will turn out to be a wild Mynock Chase, but I think it’s worth the Punt to go to Bryndar and check out the Information on this Jedi.”

Arelyn had to grin just a little bit at Latch's antics. Her fellow gunner did have a certain bit of rogueish charm about him, she admitted to herself. Too bad he spent most of his time around her being obnoxious. Same went for Jyot... She straightened up as a thought struck her.

Picking her way over to where Ali sat, she took the seat next to the pilot. "Arelyn K'zanthis," she said by way of greeting, extending her hand. Ali shook it and Arelyn took a seat next to her. "Nice to finally have another female on the ship."

Jyot's eyes widened with horror as Arelyn sat down and introduced herself to Ali. "Oh, no," he remarked under his breath. He leaned in closer to Latch. "They're making an alliance," he quietly commented about the two women. "I've got a feeling we'll need the cold weather gear long before we get to Bryndar...."

Clearing his throat, he turned to Alec and said, "Right. Bryndar. Ice planet." He cracked his knuckles. "So...," He wiggled his eyebrows. "That means we get to test out the skids I made for the speeder, right? I mean, if we don't find our Jedi, we can at least get some winter recreation in, yeah?"

"Why is it wherever we go you always find a way to turn it in to a holiday?" Alec asked annoyed. "I mean there's a time 'n place Jyot and that planet is neither, Hell without the right equipment your Lungs could freeze from just breathing in."

He looked over at Aly and smiled. "Let's get the hell off this rock and go to a whole new frosty one."

"Hey!" Jyot held out his arms in surrender as he backed off down the corridor to engineering. "What can I say? Just trying to have a good time at work, Alec. You know, job satisfaction and all that. And I do have a couple of thermal re-breathers, in case you've forgotten. Traded those..." He paused, not sure if Alec remembered that he had traded a pair of thermo-couplings for the re-breathers a year or so back. "Those, erm... those useless spares that were cluttering up the back storage area for.... Erm, nevermind."

He noticed the smile that Alec gave Ali, and his eyes narrowed a bit. "Frosty indeed," he murmured, and then turned and walked into engineering. He still had to fix the rest of Arelyn's turret, but more urgently the engines needed to be prepped for take-off.

"Arelyn K'zanthis," she said by way of greeting, extending her hand. Ali shook it and Arelyn took a seat next to her. "Nice to finally have another female on the ship."


"I completely understand the sentiment," Ali replied. Leaning forward conspiratorially, she went on, "I just got off a two month job with nothing but drunks and losers, all men, for crew." She rolled her eyes and gestured toward Jyot. "Even that, while not wholly desirable was much more appealing than another..." She shook her head, leaving the sentence unfinished.

Ali listened to the brief bits of chit chat that began popping up and then her attention was directed to the captain, who seemed to be interested in leaving as soon as possible. That suited Ali just fine. She stood and headed for the cockpit just as Jyot was trying to sidestep the fact that he'd traded something they may have needed for equipment to be used for a fun time in the cold.

"He sold something important, didn't he?" she inquired, leaning in the doorway of the common room. She shook her head in partial amusement. "Idiot."

She danced away into the cockpit, but in only a few seconds, she poked her head back into the common room.

"Oh, and Arelyn?" she said. A grin. "Call me Ali."

Then, she bounded into the cockpit, ready for the signal that all was powered on and ready.

In engineering, Jyot was going through his datapad checklist in preparation for take-off.

"Hyperdrive manifold?" One of the maintenance panels removed, he peered inside it. "Why did he have to hire Ali of all people...?" He made a small adjustment, then closed the panel door and made a tick on his datapad.

"Aluvial dampers?" He opened up another panel and began to poke around. "As soon as we get into hyperspace," he continued to mutter to himself, "she'll find me and then probably ream my Corellian butt for not...." Something caught his attention to cause him to pause. He checked something else, did a small adjustment with his hydrospanner, and then made another tick on his datapad. "I mean, it's not my fault that I lost contact with her. After all, I've been busy." He closed the panel and moved on to the next one.

"Horizontal boosters?" He lifted a panel on the deck, then dipped his head down inside it. "Why is it always the guy's responsibility to call the girl, huh? She could have called me, right? It's not like Cloud City is out of reach of communications." He made another tick on his datapad, then closed the panel on the floor and moved to another one.

"Inertial compensator." Jyot let out a sigh. The inertial compensator was something that required adjustment--and the adjustment had to be to the pilot's liking. Right now it was sitting at 97%, which had given Nasai just enough feeling of acceleration for him to feel how the ship was performing, but without letting the crew feel the G-forces. But knowing that Ali had been a more risky type pilot when he had known her, Jyot figured that she would prefer a slightly lower setting so she could more easily sense the ship's movements and feel 'closer' to the ship. "Probably want 95 or something," he complained. "Kriffin' pilots and their quirks...."

Jyot pressed his comlink, linking him to the ship's bridge. "Jyot here. Hey, can someone up there tell me what our 'new pilot' wants as her IC setting? After that's done, we'll be ready to bug out of here."

"She can tell you herself," Ali's voice answered on the intercom, with a hint of annoyance. On the bridge, she rolled her eyes. Was he that uneasy about her that he asked others to communicate her answer? She thought about that for a moment before saying, "Set it to 95, Tyrell. That'll do fine."

Latch stepped into engineering just in time to hear the last few snippets of the conversation between Jyot and Ali. As the mechanic shut off his comlink with an angry twist, Latch crossed his arms and leaned up against the doorpost. "I can see you and our newest pilot are getting on rather well," he remarked facetiously to his friend.

Jyot shot Latch an irritable look before turning back to his controls. "Oh yes, absolutely splendid. Couldn't be better."

The raven-haired gunner chuckled. "So this is why you've been in such a rosy mood." He cocked his head to the side. "I know your ex-relationships tend to go nova, but she seems to really despise you. What'd you do?"

Jyot's eyes went wide and he held his hands up in surrender while he shrugged his shoulders. "How the hell should I know?" he said to Latch, as he reached inside the hatch and tweaked the inertial compensator setting to 95 as Ali had requested. "She's a woman. Does she need a reason to be mad?"

Latch cocked his head to one side. "Well, no, but... she seems like a reasonable sort of person to me."

Jyot's eyes narrowed. "Reasonable! Ali? Reasonable?" As he replaced the panel in the deck, he shook his head. "That woman isn't reasonable. She's crazy--completely and beautifully insane. She's an awesome pilot, intelligent, adventurous, witty, has a fantastic body, and a great... " He paused uncomfortably, rethinking what he was going to say. "... erm, sense of balance. But reasonable?" He flashed a grin, shaking his head side to side as he did so. "Never reasonable. That's probably why I was attracted to her in the first place."

"So why does she have it in for you now?" Latch asked. "You must have done something."

Jyot shrugged. "I just lost touch. I left the CEC, took a job in Bespin, and that's the last I ever heard of her." He let out a sigh. "Yeah, I meant to call her. But, you know how things go. You get a new job, you get busy, you're making new contacts...." He sighed. "But she never called me either," he added, wagging a defensive finger. "I mean, I wouldn't say we parted on 'bad' terms, but... well...." He rubbed his chin where Ali had hit him hours earlier. It still smarted.

He picked up his tool kit, intending to head to Arelyn's turret to finish the repairs. "She's already decked me once today, Latch. I'm staying well out of her way." He hit his comlink. "Ok, pilot," he said to Ali, deliberately remaining impersonal with her. "Engines are a go. Scimmy's all yours."

Latch chuckled again at his friend. This wasn't the first time Jyot had run into an old flame and gotten burned and he was pretty sure it wouldn't be the last. It was more amusing this time around, since Jyot and Ali would be in close proximity and would more than likely be forced to work with each other. Latch wondered how long it would take for Ali to deliver another beatdown on the womanizing engineer. "Alec's put you in a real pickle, hasn't he?" Latch remarked as Jyot was heading out.

"Tell me about it," the blonde Corellian muttered as he made his way down the corridor.

Latch shook his head, then jogged down the opposite corridor towards the front of the ship, making a beeline for the cockpit. Ali was in there, fiddling with the controls, adjusting them to her liking. Latch plopped himself down into the co-pilot seat and swiveled to face her. "I think we might've gotten off on the wrong foot," he told her, putting his hand out. "I'm Lachlan Vax, but call me 'Latch'."

((OCC- OK as we don’t want to do the whole journey as it’ll drag on I’m going to skip us forward a few hours. I’veput all owr characters around the dinner table as they are having a meal, hope no one minds.))

Alec sat in the common room with his crew around the dinner table, Stitcher had made the meal and served it up few minuets ago. The group were enjoying the food that had been bought on Nar Shaddaa as the crew had been on basic Rations for he past couple of weeks due to the cash flow problem.

Some how the conversation got cantered around Alec telling old stories about past bounties and some of Jyot’s more embarrassing moments with female crewmembers. He poured himself another glass of Corellian ale from the large bottle that kept getting passed around the table.

Alec was telling the story of his first Job of captain of the ship just after he employed Jyot, they had been hired to find a Twi’lek and bring him to Nar Shaddaa. The finding part on the job wasn’t difficult, it was the transportation as the Twi’lek weighed a colossal 400 stone.

“It took me, Jyot and for other guys to get him in the ship….” Alec told taking another sip of his drink. “…and that was just one of his Lekku.”

Jyot absently rubbed his shoulder. "Yeah, I still remember that bounty.... You know, I had to construct a hydraulic sling out of towels, bedsheets, and use part of a speeder motor to lift that Twi'lek slug into a makeshift holding cell, which, incidentally, took up nearly half the cargo bay."

He frowned slightly, as he thought about their next job. "Suppose that's a good thing about our next quarry," he said. "Jedi are not usually overweight."

"No, they're extremely fit," Ali commented dryly. "And that's why they are so difficult to find and bring in."

Jyot flashed his ex a quick but wry grin. "Thanks for pointing that out, Ali. I would have never guessed that."

"Just trying to remind you of the dangers," Ali said, as she took a sip of her ale. "You're so reckless sometimes."

"Me?" Jyot said incredulously. "Reckless? Hey, need I remind you that I'm not the one who went and played 'Dodgem' in a band of meteors with her test ship and then tried to land with only half a forward stabliser?"

Ali stared at him. "I landed it though, didn't I?"

"That's not the point."

"That's entirely the point. Reckless is when you ignore the risks and consequences. Daring is when you know the risks and know how to deal with the consequences."

"Oh, so you're 'daring', and I'm 'reckless'?" He gave Ali a doubtful look, then turned to the rest of the crew. "Do you guys think I'm 'reckless'?"

Latch looked up from his dinner, stuffing a slice of vegetable into his mouth and being only partially successful in disguising his smile. "You?" he addressed Jyot. "Reckless?" A stifled snort. "Let's just say there's a reason we don't let you fly the ship."

“Of course you’re not reckless Jyot.” Alec said with a sarcastic grin. “It’s not like you put a sadistic trigger happy assassin droid’s brain inside a little recon droid… then gave it a tranquilliser dart launcher which it fired at you seconds after activation.”

Alec laughed as he remembered finding Jyot on the floor as the whole left half had become paralysed by Zip’s dart. “and you don’t recklessly seduce three sisters at the same time only to have them find out and chase you halfway across Cloud city.” Alec continued laughing at the expense of his first mate.

"To be fair, seducing those three sisters wasn't so much reckless as it was stupid, boss," Latch told Alec. "Though it's funny how often those two traits coincide."

"Ha, ha." Jyot gave a deadpan look in Latch's direction, before grinning and pouring himself another ale. "Yeah, yeah, yeah," he said waving a dismissive hand. "I admit the tranq dart was a mistake on my part. It was supposed to be just saline in the dart for the test." He raised an eyebrow at Stitcher, who snickered softly at the silent accusation.

"Sorry, I just couldn't resist, Jyot. It was just too good of an opportunity to pass up."

Jyot merely gave the doc a friendly eyeroll. "Uh-huh...." He took a sip of ale. "Nevermind, I promised to get you back one day, and I will," he said, wagging a finger at the doctor. "Now, the three sisters thing..." He rubbed his chin. "Yeah, I admit that was probably both reckless and stupid." Jyot smiled, a cross between slightly embarrassed and definitely mischievous, and then he sighed reminiscently. "But, a blond, a brunette, and a redhead all in one day? Boy, that was...." He suddenly became aware that they were in mixed company, with Ali and Arelyn both giving him hard stares from across the table.

"Fun?" Ali offered.

"Erm... educational," Jyot settled on, trying his best to look believable. "One of them had a degree in Integrated Circuitry."

"Uh-huh." Ali crossed her arms over her chest. "And what did the other two have degrees in? Biology and Physical Therapy?"

Aerlyn grinned, while Jyot looked flustered.

"C'mon, Jay," Ali said. "It's me you're talking to. I know exactly what you look for first in a woman." Her eyes flicked down to her chest, and then she stared back at the engineer. "And it ain't her degrees."

Jyot's forehead wrinkled. "So, what, you're saying that my only concern is for the beauty of the physical female form and I can't appreciate personality or brains?"

Ali grinned. "I don't believe you can, no. In fact...." She exchanged a secretive look with Arelyn. "I'd bet you 500 credits that you couldn't go six weeks without 'appreciating' female physical forms."

Jyot raised his brow. "Oh, ho! You think I'll fall for that one, do you?" He eyed both Arelyn and Ali dubiously. "Get me to bet 500 creds and then the first time I even look at either of you, wham! You'll hit me up to collect." He shook his head, then took another sip of ale. "Even I'm not that stupid."

"Oh, we wouldn't count," Ali said, and Arelyn nodded in kind. "Only women other than the two of us would count. I mean," she again exchanged a knowing look with Arelyn, "we work with you. You see us everyday. It wouldn't be fair if we penalized you for looking at us, now would it?"

The corner of Jyot's mouth twisted a bit as he thought about the offer. They were on the way to an ice planet in the middle of nowhere to capture a Jedi. How many beautiful humanoid women could be on an ice planet in the middle of nowhere? One? Two, maybe? And wouldn't they be bundled up most of the time due to the cold? "Six weeks, huh?" he asked Ali. "And humanoids only, right? I mean, you're not going to try and trick me into giving a compliment to someone's pet kath hound or something, right?"

"Oh, no. Humanoids only." She paused a moment. "So that means, no ogling, no wry comments, no chatting up, and definitely no physical contact with any humanoid female." She grinned. "For six. Whole. Weeks."

"Make it six hundred credits total," Jyot offered. "Payable as one hundred credits per week."

It was Ali's turn to think. She whispered something in Arelyn's ear, to which Arelyn grinned, then nodded. Ali reached across the table, sticking out her hand for Jyot to shake. "Ok. Six hundred total, but payable as only two installments. Fail before three weeks, and we get the entire six hundred. Fail after three weeks, and we'll call it even. Stick it out for the whole six, and you'll get the second payment. Deal?"

Jyot sensed that there was something fishy about this deal, but.... "Ok, you're on." He shook Ali's hand. "Deal. No womanizing for six whole weeks. Starting today."

"I'm sure you'll manage quite admirably," Arelyn told Jyot. Her voice was level and sincere, but her eyes twinkled with barely concealed amusement. Having another woman on the ship was certainly turning out better than she had expected. Ali clearly knew how to press the lusty engineer's buttons.

She held out her hand for Jyot to shake as well, but as she gripped his, she squeezed tight and pulled him close. "Oh, and just because we don't count doesn't give you free rein to ogle us," she told him sweetly, her flashing blue eyes inches away from his own. "Got it, Tyrell?"

"Ogling? Who's ogling?" Nevertheless, Jyot found Arelyn entrancing, especially having never been this close to her. He swallowed hard, and was about to make a remark to her, when a memory flickered across his mind. He looked at Latch askance. "Erm, Latch, you did say she broke some guy's arms for cutting in line at the med station, right?"

Latch nodded, and Jyot reassessed his situation.

"Yeah, okay, I'll do my best not to ogle," he said to Arelyn. Still he couldn't seem to help himself and his eyes flicked quickly downwards over her chest. Then he grinned sheepishly at Aerlyn. "Much." He held up his free hand in rapid surrender. "But before you pull my arm out of its socket, may I remind you that I still have some adjustments and repairs to do in your turret? It would be best to think about hurting me after I did the repairs."

The Scimitar flew over the icy plains of the backwater planet of Bryndar, the only two settlements were a small imperial Listening post and an old abandoned mining outpost that had been converted to a smuggling post. The Imperials were on the payroll of the Hutts to turn a blind eye to all that was happening on the planet.

As the ship approached the settlement it’s size showed how unimportant it was, two landing pads and four buildings is all that remained from the former mining station. The Scimitar didn’t even need landing clearance for a place like this as they rarely had one ship land here let alone more than two.

Not long after the touchdown the main airlock loading ramp began to lower and the whole crew stepped to together.

“I forgot how cold this place was.” Alec stated as he finished fastening the buttons on his jacket. “Spanner, Latch, Arelyn and myself are going to check out the Cantina, If Polcyc is anywhere he’ll be where the drink is.”

“Does that mean we can stay in the warn ship?” Ray Blink asked jogging on the spot to keep warn.

“Yeah.”

“Thank the force, a Twi’lek could freeze their Lekku out here.” Ray exaggerated running back into the ship.

“Come on let’s move.” Alec said walking towards the cantina.

The news of any ship landing on the desolate planet always brought a flurry of activity and excitement. Since the ice age had taken hold of Bryndar, the planet had more or less turned into one big ball of ice, interrupted only by the small settlements that had become the equivalent of ghost towns over the years. Hardly any ships came by now-a-days, leaving what was left of the economy in a dead-end crawl. However, a new ship brought off-worlders - and off-worlders brought off-world credits. The minute the ship had been sighted, almost every merchant and business man's eyes lit up with dollar signs. Cha-ching.

Though the excitement wasn't evident on her face, Ellie could feel her heart quicken slightly as another swipe of hope took hold of her. This ship could be in need of a pilot, or...or...well, they could need something. She didn't care - she would be the ship's maid if it meant that she could get back to civilization without the aid of the scumbag Empire soldiers that were stationed at the outpost a few minutes' walk from her current position near the docks. She leaned against the wall, looking out on of the large, picture windows that looked out on both the ice land desolation and the two landing pads that were outside. The toothpick between her lips twitched slightly as she watched the crew disembark. There sure were a lot of them...but she wouldn't let that squash her hope. They would need someone, wouldn't they? Of course they would!

In order to get into the main settlement, Ellie was fully aware that they would have to pass through this very hallway - and she was currently debating whether or not she wanted to give them a chance to notice her as they passed, or if she should return to the settlement for a while and await them there. Perhaps in the cantina?

The toothpick swiveled again as her tongue moved against it, her lips readjusting around the wood as she watched the crew make their way up into the building. Decisions decisions.

Latch strode next to Jyot on the engineer's right as they all walked into the settlement. Arelyn flanked Jyot on the left, not too close, but enough to keep his head in her peripheral vision. She was on the lookout to try and catch Jyot with his 'wandering eyes' and Latch could tell that this made his friend a little uneasy. The dark-haired Corellian couldn't help feeling a little bit bad for his womanizing compatriot, but he also couldn't help but be amused at Jyot's predicament.

Following Alec into the cantina, the three of them made their way towards the bar where Latch ordered up a round of Corellian whiskey for all of them. As Jyot took his glass, he looked over at Latch and whispered, "Why so generous all of a sudden?"

Latch smirked and tossed his hair back. "Someone's got to cut you some slack," he responded with a quick glance at Arelyn.

Jyot nodded as he could feel the Mistryl's eyes boring into the back of his head. "Truer words never spoken," he muttered as he downed his whiskey.

Ali stared at Jyot for a moment before going over to Alec.

"I thought I could do this," she told him quietly. "I didn't think being around Jyot would be a problem. It's not working. Sorry for the short notice, but I'm only staying on until you can get another pilot... and it better be damn soon."

Kadis' endless stream of expletives was interrupted by a beeping from the sensors. Something with a fusion reactor was coming from orbit, he could see the blip on long-range sensors.

"A ship..."

He could finally get off this wretched hellhole. The ships hull had been buckling over the past few days, and his scavenged cold-weather gear would only last for so long. They had a speeder in the cargo hold, too. Time to get out of here.

He grabbed some food and other supplies, hauling the dead captain's blaster out of it's holster and shoving it under his appropriated coat. He shrugged.

"Sorry, boss."

No sense hanging around here. I need to get out of here or I'm gonna lose it. Kadis opened the door to the cargo hold, hissing curses as the icy air hit him. This was where the brunt of the impact had taken place. He pulled his coat up and wrapped a scarf over his mouth, covering the thermal breather. It was lucky they had been shipping cold weather gear, too. He switched the speeder bike on and began mumbling quiet prayers to anything that might be listening that it would start.

"A new ship landed today," the girl said impatiently. Her brother rolled over with a grunt.

"So?" he mumbled, only half coherent. He'd been sleeping and though he loved his sister dearly, he wasn't entirely pleased to be roused from dreamland.

"A new ship, Cole," Raelyn Lark answered, bouncing impatiently on her brother's bed. The information more than the bouncing was what finally woke Colin up.

"New?" he exclaimed, bolting upright. "Not been here before? Go scout! Tell me who they are and what they do. I'll be along in a minute."

Raelyn grinned eagerly and bounded away to do as her brother had ordered. For his part, Colin was hurrying to get dressed also. Maybe they could finally get off this hell-hole.

Alright, so maybe face-to-face meetings weren't exactly her thing - especially when she had no other reason to be there in that hallway than her desperate hope that maybe this new ship could get her off this damnable backwater planet. Being desperate was not a good way to get a position on the crew - and showing just how desperate she was would only put her in a position that she really didn't want to be in.

As such, Ellie had disappeared from the hallway by the time the crew came by, slipping away into the dimly lit cantina that bordered the docking area. The place wasn't exactly active, but it was far from sleepy. Half of those that still worked in the mine, salvaging whatever they could from the planet's core and the deserted buildings and stations that were left beneath the surface, were currently mingling in soft tones at the various table, one or two waitresses sprinkling themselves around the place. Knowing that no ship's crew immediately ordered a table, she took a seat at the bar and ordered herself a martini to wait.

Soon enough, she was rewarded. The group that had disembarked the freighter filed into the cantina, taking up spots at the bar. One of the men hardly seemed to notice that he took a seat only one over from where she was sitting, but she would change that.

"Offworlders, huh?" she asked, raising an eyebrow as she looked at him. "We don't get too many of those around here."

Alec took the whiskey from the bar and took it all in his mouth in one go, his face began to look like hehad justsuckedon the bitter Nula fruit of Naboo and spat the liquid back into glass.

“How can an alcoholic beverage in this cold whether go off?” Alec asked as he sat at the bar. “Got any corellian ale in a bottle?”

The bartender brought the bottle over and placed it on the bar surface in front of Alec as he looked around the room. As expected there was virtually no one there save for a couple of waitresses and a small group of spacers gambling their sad lives away.

"Offworlders, huh?" she asked, raising an eyebrow as she looked at him. "We don't get too many of those around here."

Tannis turned his head and noticed another women in the room speaking to him, his first thought was ‘Spanner is going to lose his bet’ as he noticed she was quite young and attractive, Jyot’s type… well one of them.

“I thought everyone on the ice ball was an offworlder.” Alec replied taking a gulp of his ale. “Only two kinds of people on a place like this; people who are hiding and people who are stranded.”

A faint, wry smile came to her lips as the man turned and spoke, moving her shoulders in a small shrug. She looked at him as she took a quick drink of her martini, her green eyes - almost catlike in their appearance - flicked from his face to the bottle of ale he had ordered, and back to him again. Corellian, huh? This guy took his liquor seriously.

"Eh, true." she conceded, "But even so...most of us have been stuck here for such a long time, we don't even bother to distinguish who was really born here and who just happened in, hoping to make a fortune in the mines. Obviously..." she cast a sweeping glance around the cantina, "Not many of us are exactly living on fortunes."

Alec chuckled at the comment made by the young women and took another gulp of his drink. "I guess you guys are looking for money and would risk alot to get some."

"From what i hear most of you guys got killed out in the icy weilderness a few weeks back." Alec turning his body to face the women and look her in the eyes. "Heard they went after a Jedi, that's why we're here, don't suppose you've seen an Abyssian by the name of Polcyc around or anything about this Jedi?"
