((Not if she was already on a mission and couldn't help out with the attack on Geonosis.))

"Were you in some sort of a vaccumm or something?"

"No. I was already on a mission when the attack on Geonosis occured. I was never in the same sector during the war or after the war." She answered half-truthfully. The truth was...complicated and she didn't like to think about it. It brought back far too many bad memories.

"I'm sorry I can't be of more help. But as I said, I was on another mission."




Imperial Pride

Beroc snarled at his first officer as a few consoles on the bridge burst into flame and smoke.

"Reroute all auxillary power to shields and weapons! Bring the ship around and begin targeting the frigates and cruisers first. They are being used as an anti-fighter barrier now and without them the republic fleet won't be able to take out as many fighters! Power up the modified turbolasers and bring the ship about."

The Imperial Pride slowly began to turn around as it fired it's forward turbolasers at any ship in it's path. The heavily powered up tubolasers cut directly through any of the ships in it's path and wiped out at least five ships before they had to recharge.



Ackbar

"Admiral!" Garja shouted as he watched the screen. "Look!" Belina turned to look as one of the imperial ships turned around and punched directly through the shields of at least five of her ships before ceasing fire.

One hit from those tubolasers was enough to wipe out their shields and punch through their hull. That's not good.

The bridge rocked as Belina grabbed onto a console to keep from falling. "Order all fighters and bombers to go after that ship! Disable it's forward turbolasers at all costs!"

"The good doctor has been caring for me so long that I find myself curiously unable to let go of her hand," Andorra announced with a giggle. Then she turned to her new partner. "Lenatha? It might be a good idea for me to get some practice in wielding Chetyrnadtsat' again, as I have not done so in a good long while. If I put a sheath on the blade, would you be willing to spar with me in the cargo hold?" A brief pause. "That is, if it's empty, of course."

"Lead them to the labs, including the princess and the doctor. Turn their target into a trap." Darth Pestilus explained. "They will witness the might of the Sith Empire as it rises once more to crush the New Galactic Empire and the Third Galactic Republic!"

*************************

"Jun-la's practicing in there already, if that's not a problem." Kalla explained, wondering if 'sparring' was just a euphemism. "If it is, there's still the garage and the dormitories. If you'll excuse me, I'll be joining her in the cargo hold."

*************************

"Understood. Time to give them a taste of their own medicine." Iyav replied, activating the cannon's randomiser and opening fire on the New Imperial Star Destroyer until he could bypass their shields. Then, seeing one of his shots go straight through, he transmitted the readings to the rest of the Republic fleet. "Put your weapons at these settings, and you should be able to even the odds against that Star Destroyer." He explained.

Lenatha looked at Andorra a little embarrased, not because they were a couple now, not because she was holding her hand, but because as skilled as a surgeon that she was, fencing was not really her best ability.

"I'll try to keep up, honestly I'm not that good with a sword, I'm better with a blaster. But it can't hurt to practice right?", Lenatha said hoping not to disappoint Andorra of any expectations she might have had about her as a fighter.

Xan looked over at Darth Pestilus and found himself cocking his eyebrow again. He certainly hoped he was included in this destruction or excluded from it and left alone with his money. Either way he'd make sure to keep an eye on Pestilus in case he too got caught in this trap. He turned away and down towards his own feet. He'd have to options in how he would get them to the labs. He could attack the group and then retreat into the labs, or he could mask his true intentions and lead them there peacefully. Option 1 was much more fun but he'd attempt Option 2 and if they didn't believe him then he'd go with the better option. He looked back at Darth Pestilus and smirked.

"That shouldn't be too hard for someone like me. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go get ready for our guests," Xan said standing up.

--------

Silence was a must when in the presence of a higher rank. At least that's what Wrath was told when he was a Sith. Upon hearing of a little sparring match however, he decided to speak up. He looked over at Andorra and gave a slight bow.

"If you truly want to get some practice with your weapon again, then perhaps I would be a better sparring partner. No offense to the doctor, but I feel I would be able to give you the practice you require. She can fight with you if you wish, besides I too have not fought in quite some time and could use the warm up," he said with a slight chuckle at the end.

"Put your weapons at these settings, and you should be able to even the odds against that Star Destroyer."

Belina and her bridge crew cheered as Iyav's message came over the channel. "Tactical! Hit that star destroyer with everything we've got!"

Belina grinned as she watched as one of the turbolaser blasts went directly through the shields of the star destroyer and then her smile vanished as the blasts began hitting the shields again.

"Sorry..." she said over the comlink. "It looks like they managed to change the shield frequency again."

Her expression turned to one of horror as she watched as three full squadrons of fighters flew out of the hanger bay and went directly after Komad's ship.

"Komad. You have at least three squadrons of fighters on your tail. Watch out."



Imperial Pride

"Admiral! We have impacts against the hull! That MC-104 cruiser is the source of the blasts!"

Beroc turned around and began issuing orders. "Tactical. Dispatch three squadrons of fighters to deal with that little ship that managed to punch through our shields earlier. I want it destroyed now! Bring us about so we're facing the MC-104 and get an identification on it."

"It reads as the Ackbar. Admiral Belina's ship."

Beroc smiled a grim smile. Killing Belina would prove to be a great victory for the empire.

"Are the modified turbolasers recharged yet?"

"No sir. They need another minute before they're fully recharged."

"Very well. Bring us so that our starboard guns are facing the Ackbar and begin firing as soon as possible."


Geonosis

Atora Zen knew that there was going to be a battle in orbit of Geonosis but he didn't know that it was going to be this...chaotic. Ships were exploding all around him and he was being forced to didge debries and stray tubolaser blasts but he had his orders.

Belina had ordered him to go to Geonosis and put a stop to this disease at all costs even if it meant his own life. In return, Admiral Belina would allow him to use the Ackbar as a port that he could dock his ship at whenever he needed repairs or a place to lay low for awhile. Assuming that he lived through this mission.

I will live. And my reputation will continue to be spread throughout all known space. I will be the best known bounty hunter in all known space.

Atora continued on down toward the planet as he looked for a place to land his ship.

"I have an idea," Andorra announced with a girlish wink and a smile. "Doctor? You can shoot blaster bolts at me, with the blaster set to 'stun', and I will try to deflect them with Chetyrnadtsat'. Wrath? In the meantime, you can duel me in hand-to-hand melee combat. What good am I as a fighter if I can't handle two opponents at the same time? If the vivinecrotic people and creatures gang up on us, I don't want to find myself outnumbered and defenseless. Agreed?" She turned to leave for the training room on the ship.

"Truth is complicated," Tavaryn muttered. "We'll land at the last coordinates the Jedi landed at. We'll make our way there." He then tapped the console to activate the comm, "R4, use the coordinates in your memory banks for Geonosis."

Haruka eyed his companions. And I thought I had a lousy past. Out loud he said, "Oookay so you were off on a mission. Must've been important cause it saved you from the purge."

**********

Jun-la was practicing her hand to hand but it was in a meditative state. The old masters called it kata. She just breathed and followed through with what her master had taught her. She noticed Kalla but made no acknowledgement and she was followed by Tonatius.

Tonatius left with a few choice words for his cousin, "Practice makes better but don't rush it." He then followed Kalla into the cargo hold. He noticed Jun-la and he whispered to Kalla, "Kata as the old masters call it. A meditative state of combat. Some forms use a blade, others are hand to hand. A means of centering and becoming one with your weapon of choice."

"Oookay so you were off on a mission. Must've been important cause it saved you from the purge."

"No...during the purge I was at the jedi temple. I fought my way through the clones and managed to escape to Geo- Never mind. But I was on Tatooine when The jedi left to Geonosis. I was supposed to go apparently but I recieved the message far to late to be of any good. I was actually busy trying to take down a minor criminal."

She sighed deeply.

"I can't help but think that if I had gone there I could have made a difference of some sort. But like I said, I didn't get the message in time."

Tavaryn looked up from his musings and turned to face Alriana. He said, "We can't all but help feel that way at some point in our lives. I like to think that things happen for a reason or as the Jedi like to say, the Force wills it. One cannot pretend to understand all intricacies of it."

"You know the Handmaidens would say different," Haruka replied.

"Actually the Handmaidens serve the will of the Force," Tavaryn corrected. "The Shinigami are guardians and the Bushida warriors are in effect the military." He grinned at the thought of it all. "We all believe in a higher power and each strives to serve as best as they can, even the nonbelievers."

"In my experience I'd call it luck," Haruka said before getting up to go explore the ship. They still had some time to kill before reaching the planet Geonosis. Better to go find Two-y and get prepared.

When Haruka left, Tavaryn looked at Alriana and said, "The boy is gone now and you can tell me about your escape. If you wish."

"Soresu operates on similar principles." Kalla commented. She then approached Jun-la and asked, "Mind if we join you?"

*************************
(Komad and Iyav are in separate ships. Komad's in his X-38, while Iyav's in the Silver Eagle)

"This is where the fun begins." Komad replied, taking his X-38 close enough to the hull of the New Imperial Star Destroyer attacking the Ackbar to attract the attention of it's autoturrets. He maintained an erratic flight path, narrowly avoiding the shots, while the fighters behind him weren't so lucky. After thinning their numbers considerably, he changed course and headed for the ship's external shield generator. Once he was close enough, he unleashed his ship's payload on it, and banked too sharply for the remaining fighters on his tail to follow suit.

Not deterred by the change in shield frequency again, Iyav reactivated the randomiser, and targeted the ship's turbolasers.

Jun-la didn't look at Kalla but rather kept her concentration. She gave a slight nod that was unnoticeable to the naked eye but Tonatius caught the movement. He said, "We are welcome." He then explained, "Though it seems rude, it is part of the meditation. Full concentration is needed in order to center yourself. She heard us."

Tonatius stood a fair distance away before withdrawing his blade in a fluid motion that would have rendered it invisible since he was moving so fast. He then slid into a fighting stance and stood there just breathing. "Ready?" He meant to meditate before sparring.

"The boy is gone now and you can tell me about your escape. If you wish."

Alriana sighed heavily. Maybe it would be best if she told the tale. "After I escaped from the jedi temple, I fled to Geonosis but the Empire's bounty hunters and inquisitors were right behind me. Because of my cowardly retreat from the temple, two hives of Geonosions were exterminated because they chose to hide me. I am responsible for so many deaths..."



Imperial Pride

"Admiral! We have managed to locate a small ship that it attempting to attack the modified turbolasers. It also just finished attackng one of our shield generators "

"Engage the tractor beam and pull it in. If that ship is brave enough to go up against the modified turbolasers then it must posess some sort of special ability."

The tractor beam engaged and immediatly snared the smaller ship. Beroc smiled widely as it was pulled toward the staboard hanger. "Engage all tractor beams and focus them on that ship. I don't want to be able to maunuver at all."

Komad then finished off the external shields on the Imperial Pride. only to spot the Silver Eagle caught in its tractor beams. "The shield's are down, give them everything you've got."

Time to get clever. Iyav thought as he started looking through the ship for ways out of the tractor beam. Without a clear indication of where the beams were coming from on that Star Destroyer, shooting them out would be impossible. However, he did see one viable solution. He quickly gathered everything he and Komad considered essential into the cockpit, sealed it off, and opened the airlocks, jettisoned the escape pods, and for good measure, fired off a few torpedoes. The vast mess of debris was able to divert the attention of the tractor beams, and allow the Silver Eagle to break free. That stuff can be replaced, and Komad'll just be glad I'm alive.

******************************

"Ready." Kalla replied, activating her lightsaber and holding it in the traditional Soresu stance. "You know those things are going to bleed just as much from your sword as from Andorra's, right?" She asked before meditating herself.

"If they didn't bleed then they'd be a droid," Tonatius replied before executing a graceful mood to begin meditating. "Before the lightsaber, the Jedi had these." His point was to emphasize that Kalla shouldn't judge a weapon by its appearance alone.

**********

Tavaryn listened as she explained herself. He had a feeling she had been on Geonosis before but the memories were painful. He interrupted her, "Don't ever say that. They made the choice to hide you and by doing so accepted the risk of being associated with the Jedi."

He was aware that he sounded a bit harsh so he softened his voice to a softer tone. "They chose to help you. They knew that they risked death. It was not cowardly to run. Mother told me that the signal was sent to warn any surviving Jedi to stay away. You were obeying an order but also you wanted to live. It is not selfish to want that."

"Just be careful, you know I don't want to lose you, my love." Kalla replied, clearing her mind and reaching out with the Force...

She saw it: the New Imperial Base, abandoned, but filled with victims of the bioweapon, Republic Guardsman and New Imperial Stormtrooper alike. The halls were littered with blood spatter, carbon scoring and dead bodies. She saw the group trapped in the labs and crippled with fear. Through it all, however, she saw a man she did not recognise, dressed in black robes, and laughing amidst the carnage. She did not know why, but when she saw him, she was more terrified of him than anything in her entire life...

Her eyes shot open, her pupils wide, her breathing heavy. As she saw Tonatius, all she could say was "Who was he?"

"I think that's a good idead, I am not too good with a sword, I'm completely sure that Wrath would be a far better opponent. I am good with a blaster so it will be good excersize. I haven't fired one in a long time but it's like riding a speederbike, you just don't forget it", Lenatha said with a smile as she opened up her silver case revealing two shiny silver dual twin blasters from it. She checked the power cell and then readied them spinning them skillfully on her hands. "Ready when you are."

"They chose to help you. They knew that they risked death. It was not cowardly to run. Mother told me that the signal was sent to warn any surviving Jedi to stay away. You were obeying an order but also you wanted to live. It is not selfish to want that."

Alriana sighed heavily. "It was cowardly to run. It was cowardly of me to run instead of staying and fighting alongside the Geonosions. They gave their lives to save mine even though I was a former enemy."

Imperial pride

"Grand Admiral. The smaller ship has broken free from the tractor beams."

"Ignore it. I think I've come up with a solution to the shield problem. Keep remodulating shields every few seconds."

"As you command Admiral. Also, the Ackbar's forward shields are weaking. Estimated shield failure in three minutes."

"Excellent."


Ackbar

"Admiral! The forward shields are weakining! They're attempting to break sthrough the shields that are surrounding the bridge."

"Reroute all auxillary power to the bridge shields!" Belina shouted. "Have we made any headway against those modified turbolasers?"

"A few of them have been damamged but none of them have been destroyed! The shields surrounding them are too strong!"

"Status of the imperial fleet?"

"Thirty percent of their forces have been destroyed or crippled. But thirty five percent of our forces have been destroyed or crippled as well! We should withdraw and regroup Admiral!"

"No! We need to buy time for the ground forces that have already landed." She turned to look out the window just in time to see two of her star destroyers begin focusing fire on the modifed star destroyer.

This new Grand Admiral is dangerous. I might need to retreat from this one once the last of the ground craft land.

Andorra brought Chetyrnadtsat' to her chest, lengthwise, closed her eyes, and then spun herself into a great, whirling vortex of flying hair and blurry motion. She deflected several blaster bolts from Lenatha, but when Wrath suddenly attacked her, she was at a split-second loss for how to proceed...

"I say again, it wasn't cowardly," Tavaryn replied, "The Force is said to protect the lost, the innocent and the fools. It works its own will." He had recited what his mother had told him though he never understood it fully until he met Kyle Katarn. He grew up away from the Force so he didn't grasp the teachings of the Jedi when they cropped up. Confusing times.

**********

Tonatius grunned wryly as he went through the motions with Kalla. He was jerked out of it when she started breathing heavily and he saw her wide eyed expression. Lady Jun-la bore a similar look. He asked, "Who?"

"I don't know who he was. All I know is that I saw him laughing amidst the dead and the undead in the New Imperial Base, like he found it amusing. I don't know why, but I was so consumed with fear when I saw him. He might be behind the virus, whoever he is." Kalla explained. "Just give me a moment to catch my breath, and I'll be fine."

************************************

"Commander, I think I've spotted a weakness in their defense: to combat the randomised lasers, they've started remodulating the shields. However, the shields have to go offline briefly in order to do this. If you time your shots correctly, there won't be a shield to get past." Iyav suggested.

Tonatius narrowed his eyes in suspicion as he looked at Lady Jun-la who was no where in sight having left as rapidly while Kalla was speaking. Tonatius knew something was going to happen but he felt powerless to do anything save fight. He replied, "Don't worry. Things will work out even if they are the most terrifying of things." He smiled as reassurance.

"I suppose you're right. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it." Kalla replied, smiling back at Tonatius. "How long was I out? It can't be that much longer before we reach Geonosis."

"The Force is said to protect the lost, the innocent and the fools. It works its own will."

If thats true then why didn't the force protect all those Geonosians who fought to protect me? She thought darkly.

"I disagree. Look at what happened to all the jedi who were killed when Order 66 went down. Many of them were innocent and the force didn't protect them."


Ackbar

"Commander, I think I've spotted a weakness in their defense: to combat the randomised lasers, they've started remodulating the shields. However, the shields have to go offline briefly in order to do this. If you time your shots correctly, there won't be a shield to get past."

"Thanks for the info!" Belina calmly said as Garja continued putting fires around the bridge. "Tactical! Open up on those turbolasers!"

Belina watched as the turbolasers hit the star destroyer directly where the modified turbolasers were located, destroying three of them before the shields went back up.

"Did we get them all?"

"N-No sir. We weren't able to get the last one. And the bridge shields are down to ten percent! We can't survive much more of this."


Imperial Pride

"Admiral! Three of the modified turbolasers have been destroyed. The shields have been remodulated. The Ackbar's bridge shields are down to ten percent.

"Have the republic landing craft managed to make it through the blockade?"

"Several waves have managed to make it through. Also, a small ship managed to break through earlier."

"Are our ground forces ready for them?"

"Yes sir! They have been alerted and are waiting for the republic forces to land."

"Excellent! Keep targeting the Ackbar and keep firing until there is nothing left of that ship but ashes!"

They keep remodulating their shields, which makes specifically configuring the lasers almost useless. However, there's no way they can get them fully charged, meaning they'd be focusing on the forward shields, leaving the stern unprotected. Iyav thought, figuring out a way to save the Ackbar. The Imperial Pride was too focused on the Ackbar to notice the Silver Eage, so he skimmed along the hull of the Star Destroyer until he reached the engines, and he fired every remaining proton torpedo at the ship's exhaust panels. The impact was close enough to ignite the remaining fuel.

"They were deceived," Tavaryn replied softly, "They were deceived by the very person who was supposed to represent the ideals of the Republic. By the time realization came, it was too late. There wasn't a day that went by that my mother slipped into despair over that memory even though before hand she managed to save some of the younglings."

It was difficult to talk about his mother. Most of what he was saying were what she had told him and what he observed when they were hiding with the Shinigami. He couldn't describe what he was feeling as he spoke. "The Force does protect those I said but also there is a purpose for every lifeform. In a way the Geonosians are protected in memory. They..."

R4 had interrupted stating that they were nearing the end of the line to Geonosis. He stood up and said, "Just remember there is a urpose for everything," then disappeared down the tunnel to check on the navigation systems and leaving Alriana to ponder more on what they were discussing.

**********

"We were in meditation but I believe Lady Jun-la felt it as well," Tonatius offered. "If that is the case then we will be all the more prepared." It was a rather weak speaking of confidence but Tonatius didn't know what else to say.

At that moment, Matton's voice came over the comm, Attention all hands, we'll be arriving at Geonosis in approximately twenty minutes.

"They were deceived by the very person who was supposed to represent the ideals of the Republic. By the time realization came, it was too late. There wasn't a day that went by that my mother slipped into despair over that memory even though before hand she managed to save some of the younglings."

Alriana simply sighed and stayed silent as she thought more on what Tavaryn said. She watched as he left to check the nanigation systems.


Ackbar

"Admiral! The engines of the Star destroyer have been destroyed! They are begining to go into a spin!"

"Admiral Belina was knocked out when a nearby console exploded" Garja shouted back at the officer. "Reroute all power to the shields and this time I mean all power except for the weapons!"

"Yes sir!"

Garja watched as a medical team rushed to the bridge and carried the wounded Admiral Belina off the bridge as quickly as they could.

If I don't win this battle then she'll never forgive me. He thought as he ordered all weapons trained on the star destroyer and gave the order to fire again.

Imperial Pride

"Admiral. Our sublight engines are now gone. All we have left are thrusters and the backup Hyperdrive."

"It was the small ship that did this wasn't it?"

"Yes sir. We've managed to find out the name of the vessel. It's known as the Silver eagle.

"The Ackbar has just rerouted all power to their shields."

"Inform all ships to launch their reserve fighters. Take out the silver eagle at all costs and inform the Death's head to begin targeting the Ackbar.

The first officer nodded and began issuing orders.

((Question: is there a blockade on Geonosis? Just want to make sure.))

Tavaryn studied his navigation charts and found that they would be coming in on the far side of the planet. The charts also indicated that the asteroid belt would provide good cover in terms of obscuring signatures and the duck andcover method should someone start shooting.

Haruka had been upgrading Two-y to be more effective in combat such as repairing droids or even fighting himself. After finishing, he walked towards the cockpit where his rescuer/companion was studying the navigation charts. He figured it was time to get some answers, "So Shinigami, why did they send you?"

Tavaryn cast a glance and replied, "I'm one of the best so they say. Mainly because of my ties to the Jedi and the Force."

"Why? You related to a Jedi?"

"Something like that. Had a friend who was a Jedi. They thought I was better prepared to handle someone with a strong connection to the Force."

"And they think I have the Force. " Haruka chuckled slightly, "Look I may be able to sense some things before they happen but it's nothing more than survival instincts. That's all."

"So you say."

Haruka groaned at the annoying phrase. "Look I tagged along because those guys that attacked us on NarShadda attacked me and tried to kill me. Let's just say I want answers."

"And you are entitled to them. We're about twenty minutes from Geonosis. Let Alriana know."

Haruka gave a wave to indicate that he would do it. He went to the main hold where Alriana was sitting. He said, "Told me to tell you we've got twenty minutes till we reach the planet."

((I believe this is where things were left off Alkonium?))

"Once the 'Nex Venators' find out what's been done for you, you're liable to become a target yourself. Were they involved in the attack on the Republic Star Destroyer Cygnus?"

Vector shifted slightly and pondered the thought of being targeted, then laughed to himself quietly. "I've been targeted by the 'Nex Venators' since I left the Sith order the first time.....The Sith found me and tortured me for my actions - Heh, familiar isn't it?
"The 'Nex Venators' liked me for that - strangely enough - they saw to it that the Sith 'let me go' for my weakness, and they approached me, spoke words of promise, and they took me in, trained me. With time I left them too," Vector paused, sighing slightly, his eyes refocusing on the wall, as they'd spaced out during his recollections.

"So you see, being a target doesn't bother me, I'm used to it. How about you Jedi, do you care that I'm targeted? Do you realize that by doing what you've done for me you've only made Komad and his group bigger targets? Oh, don't worry though, the 'Nex Venators' will wait for awhile, they'll take their time and analyze their mistakes, and then the problems will start mounting. Do you think your friends are ready for that?" Vector shook his head and stared off at a different wall.

With time Vector looked back and spoke in a low weary tone, "The Cygnus you say? Tell me, is the information worth anything to you? Or have you already learned something?"


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."
"I would have killed the galaxy to preserve you...You are more precious than you know..."-now...it's verbatim!-A quote from Darth Traya (Kreia)

(Yes, but it's currently being engaged by the Republic Fleet)

Ebon Hawk

Kalla had a pretty good idea of what to expect above Geonosis once Matton made his announcement. As she and Tonatius left the cargo hold, she asked him, "Gun turrets?"

Komad's X-38

After Iyav disabled the Imperial Pride, Komad immediately noticed another squadron of TIE Wraiths going after the Silver Eagle. Naturally, Komad put his X-38 into a pursuit course. Despite all the technological advances, Sienar's TIE line still lacked the resilience of Incom's fighters, sacrificing it in order to allow for cheaper mass-production. A mistake they never did learn from. He managed to take out several with little more than his X-38's laser cannons, even knocking out the engines of a few and making them swerve into one another.

Jedi Temple, Medical Wing

"Two weeks ago, the Republic lost all contact with the RSS Cygnus. When it turned up again, it was ravaged by an infection which reduced most of the crew to what could best be described as zombies. You can see why we want more information." Kol explained.

Tonatius gave a shrug. He walked to where the turrets were and climbed up. To be fair, he liked being in the turrets but the only thing that he didn't like was the fact that the turrets tended to be sluggish against fast moving fighters.

He climbed into his seat and hooked on the headset. "Tonatius is the turrets. All systems go."

Matton replied, "Alright kid. Kalla in turret two?"

"You know it." Kalla replied, buckling herself in. She agreed with Tonatius on the turrets' flaws, despite her enjoying it. She also noticed an unusual lack of enthusiasm in Tonatius's tone. "Is something wrong?" She asked him.

"Told me to tell you we've got twenty minutes till we reach the planet."

((Is Darth Pestilus on the surface yet? I was going to have Beroc try to kill him.))

Alriana nodded her thanks at Haruka for telling her and then reached down and ignited her lightsaber to make sure that it was working properly. She then deactivated it and returned it to her belt.

"So tell me...What do you know of the jedi of this time?" She asked. "I am not officially a member of the order and thus am not that familiar with their practices."



Ackbar


"Admiral Garja, we have just recieved an update on Admiral Belina's condition. Medbay reports that she is in critical condition."

"We're going to dedicate this battle to her then. Have you managed to identify the Imperial flagship?"

"Yes sir. The flagship has been identified as the Imperial Pride under the command of Grand Admiral Beroc."

Beroc...where have I heard that name before? It sounds so familiar.


Imperial Pride

Grand Admiral Beroc turned toward the viewports just in time to see an X-38 go by the and wipe out some of his fighters that were on the tail of the silver eagle

"Launch all shielded fighters and have them chase down the silver eagle.

"Yes sir!"

Out of habit, Tonatius turned to look at Kalla while the target systems were coming online. He replied, "Nothing wrong, just...waiting" He couldn't really describe the feeling. It was unease because it felt like a calm before the storm yet it was oddly content. He dealt with it the only way he knew how and that was to assume the stance of the warrior. "Targeting is online."

**********

Haruka eyed the Jedi with some trepidation before answering, "Hell I don't know much about it. Me I spent my life avoiding them since one once told me I was special.I do know that the new order was started by Luke Skywalker and his closest friend Andros Starlighter."

(@Chev: I think he is. How do you feel about Pestilus turning the tables on Beroc?)

Ebon Hawk
"I'm ready on this one." Kalla called out, preparing for the ship to come out of hyperspace. She could feel the sluggishness of the turrets even now, and while she was still impressed that the ship was working after four thousand years, she often wondered why Matton and Jun-la didn't give it a massive overhaul, or even sell it for a more modern ship.

Wrath had stopped attacking Andorra and turned to see if Kalla was alright. He didn't know what had just happened but it confused him a little. Before he knew it they were 20 minutes from Geonosis and Kalla and Tonatius had left to go into the turrets. Feeling rather useless, and his general hatred of ships he decided to get himself ready for when they did touch down on the surface.

Jun-la noticed Wrath's discomfort and said, "The garage is a good place. It is close to the exit ramp." She then went towards the cockpit passing by the turrets. She called up, "She may be old but she's well cared for."

Tonatius heard it and laughed a bit. He said to Kalla over his headset, "Lady Jun-la always knows what's on people's minds when it comes to her ship."

It was then Matton's voice came over the comm, Approaching Geonosis. Heavy blockade. Be ready for fighters.

**********

Tavaryn brought the ship out of hyperspace and the rush of seeing the blockade was enough to send a rookie's senses into overdrive. He remained calm though as he enacted the ship's cloaking mechanism. With luck they would be able to sneak onto the planet with minimal detection. He commed the Hawk, "Arrived at Geonosis on approach. Suggest you land at sent coordinates." He then transmitted the coordinates that he came up with.

Andorra, seeing that Wrath had suddenly left, took a few more practice swings with Chetyrnadtsat', preparing for battle. What would become of her, of Tonatius, of Kalla, of Wrath and Lenatha? Would they prevail, or become victims of whatever agent was causing the vivinecrosis? She was terrified of the thought. She also wished she would have perfected the art of using a blaster instead of a vibroblade, so she could hit the infected creatures at a distance rather than at such a close range that she could smell their breath, but all was not lost. She smiled placidly, closed her eyes, and meditated for a brief moment.

Lenatha stopped firing when she noticed that Wrath had left. She looked over at Andorra, who seemed deep in thought. Lenatha reached to touch her, but stopped her hand for a moment and withdrew it. She did not want to bother her but she did want to hear what was in her mind. So she simply put on her best smile and looked at Andorra.

"Is everything ok?", Lenatha asked her simply.

Ebon Hawk

"Then I meant no offense." Kalla jokingly replied, watching as the ship came out of hyperspace. She could tell already that the battle was costly for both sides. The space above Geonosis was already littered with debris originating from Republic and Imperial ships alike. She soon spotted two very familiar ships. "It's the Silver Eagle. We should try to help them out on our way down.

Silver Eagle

Iyav was scrambling to find a way to deal with the squadron of TIE defenders on his tail, when he pulled up the remote turret controls. Turning the autopilot on, he opened fire on the TIE's. The Silver Eagle's cannons packed enough of a punch to take out most of their shields, but it still wouldn't be easy to destroy the fighters themselves. However, as he pounded on the fighters, they were soon finished off by the turrets from the Ebon Hawk, and Komad's X-38.

"Thanks for the assistance!" Iyav transmitted to the Ebon Hawk. "Any time!" Kalla called out to her 'stepfather'. He wasn't actually her father's husband, but she figured he was close enough.
