Transport docks with Deac's ship. Odin and four Einherjar. After finishing the docking procedure, Odin's transport makes a jump to hyperspace.

Hello Deac. What is the house army? My Einherjar, operate on their own. They will take objectives if I approve, but they will not take on any outsiders.

Shouldn't we be going.

(OOS: So comes the end of a great plan... I was hoping you'd let me destroy the planet Cracken... I had a great, and rather amusing, post set for that. But improvisation is the sign of true genius, and I've never denied being that. Oh, and by the way, this post isn't actually going to do much, just give some background and character development on Katani. So, if need be you can prolly skip it, but I'll try to make it interesting reading nonetheless. Trying to increase the whole wordsmithing skills and all.)

Katani thought to himself how dissappointed he was. He had hoped to completely destroy Belkadan. To tap into their computer systems and revel in the screams of it's sentients at their impending doom. To become a god, to hold the strings of life and death in his hands, and to feel the pain as he tugged each, the joy, elation, sorrow and agony. He would be the Harbinger of doom, and Death would follow him like a submissive dog, obeying his every beck and call.

The Conqueror stood waiting for him when he returned to the hangar. He climbed aboard, still a bit dejected, but also savoring the anticipation of the utter dominance he would bring upon Belkadan and it's inhabitants. Perhaps he would kill them all anyway, despite what Lord Cracken had said. Perhaps he would make himself Lord of Belkadan, controlling the people like the ruler he was born to be... like he should have been over Kuat. If it wasn't for Deac Stakiller... if it wasn't for Cracken. Many had stood in his way before. Many obstacles, many people. But he had passed them all. And then, only one thing stood in his way, one man who could destroy him. One man whose knowledge could prove deadly to his very existence. Deac Starkiller. And so, when properly equipped with a few dozen Noghri, he headed to a particular cantina on Tatooine. There he found Deac... and proceeded to lose yet another fight because of his underestimating his foes. But no more. He now had the Ultimate Weapon... despite what he'd told Cracken, nothing could destroy this beauty. He would survive. Alone.

*An Old last model Z-95 Headhunter drops out of hyperspace at Belkaden.*

*Taklin Flax' personnal fighter, the "BattleDog", was not a Headhunter. Granted, it had the hull, wings and cockpit; however the craft had shields rating on Capship levels, guns more powerfull than Turbo lasers. These guns were tachyn, pure energy weapons.*

*Flax had sensed a strange, menacing presance, un holy and inhumen.*

Killing it fit right in with his job description.

*Flax clokes his fighter.

*Deac's cloaked ship, with Deac, Odin, Flax, the Einherjar, (and whoever Deac and Flax brought along for the ride, I assume a commando team) exits hyperspace over Kuat. The Crimson Star is dead ahead...*

Starr: Remember, don't call in the rest of the fleet till we're inside the Titan...





((edit: Didn't see Battledog's post;

OOS: @Battledog: Didn't you say/imply you were with Deac?

Quote:
Remember Deac, none of us can take him alone. He already killed me once. Hell I've killed more Sith Lords than you've had birthdays! That guy is the son of the Emperor.
And...how did you find Belkaden?

A) Superthrawn never said he arrived at Belkaden yet. He could still even be at Kuat.

B) How did you know he was going there?

C) How do you know his character is so "foul and unnatural"?

D) Why did you leave Deac? When did you?

You know...if it's a different person at Belkaden by random coincidence, it would still work...but currently it looks like borderlime godmode...if I'm wrong, Deac, correct me))

OSS: Wow, what was I on!?!?!?

Right, for the record:

*This post is timed just before Deac's jump to hyper space.*

*Flax' X-Wing floats in space, at the centre of a huge formation of fighters.*

Flax: Good luck Deac. The fleet awaits your call.


OSS: For the record Flax only ever flys his own fighter or transport. He hates being on other peoples ships.

((OOS: It was probably unconscious compensation for my uber-nitpickyness

Actually, this is a good thing, because I didn't know your personal fighter was that powerful; it can actually be more useful than I imagined ))

*in response to Deac's question*

Starr: You and Odin must attack him directly. I will lead you to his command chambers...I have seen them in a vision. As for getting in...the Crimson Star's weakness is that it doesn't have its weapons systems fully charged. Only its shields are kept up. It has fired its superlaser system within the past few hours, so it won't be fully charged yet, and it will take another day to prepare the antimatter cannon for firing again.

Cracken will be controlling the fleet through the Force, just as Darth Vader and the Emperor did at the Battle of Endor. This ship can sneak under cloak into the Crimson Star itself when it lowers it shields to let fighters out. We must infiltrate the SSD Titan in the moon's core. Once inside, the cloak will be useless.

*closes his eyes again*

His command chambers will be heavily guarded, perhaps with Reborn clones....yes, I can sense their signature on the Force. It is clouding my ability to see Cracken... He may not be in the Titan's command chambers when we get there...after we defeat the guards, I will be able to find him.

Immediately after we enter the SSD, you must summon the fleet. Talkin Flax must lead the attack on the Crimson Star, because his fighter is the only one the right size yet with strong enough shields to survive the attack...he must bring the shields of the beast down. *Starr takes out a holo and points to the image projected; it looks like the Death Star's trench except with an enclosed shaft at the end* Right there: There is a shaft leading to the main control systems. The central shield projector is located here, but it cannot be hurt by ordinary fighter weapons...only weapons more powerful than a turbolaser, which Flax has on his fighter. The shaft is only small enough for a one-man fighter to fit through and get back out, which was why it was constructed this way; no capship could get in to bring the shields down.

Once the outer shields are down---the inner shields will still be up; the Crimson Star has a better design than Palpatine's Death Star...no fighters will be able to get inside the superweapon itself, but attack can be commenced to destroy the primary superlasers before they can be fired again. By this time, we have to have gotten to Cracken, so he will be distracted enough that the New Republic's fleet can have a chance against his.

*Starr pauses for breath, then nods and puts away the projector*

Hurry...we must get inside before Cracken can sense us.

Katani finally finished strapping himself into the [IConqueror.[/I] That little bit of rhetoric he'd just gone through had been good for his psyche, but bad on time. He'd wasted almost five minutes sitting there thinking. He had no doubt the techs waiting to launch him were becoming impatient. But, no matter. He was their master now, and there were few who could do more harm to them than him.

The Uplink slid into it's slot easily, plunging Katani back into the "Real World." He'd been away so long, he almost couldn't remember what it was like. But now that he was back... it was like a Crack addict who just got their first hit after a month of withdrawl. He felt like he could fly. And he could.

The tech had, indeed, become impatient. He couldn't wait for this ingrate to launch. He strutted around here like he owned the place, like he could order around anyone he wanted to. When he'd barged into the day lounge, taking him off his break to come and launch him off, then had sat in his cockpit for five minutes staring off into space, he'd let off a string of curses that would make most mothers blush and most scoundrels stand up and applaud.

Katani ran through the briefest of preflight checks, then activated the repulsorlifts on the Conqueror, raising a comfortable two meters off the deck, and manuevering it down and out of the opeining of the hangar bay. He then kicked in the engines, and put space tracks between himself and Lord Cracken. It would be a long time before he'd want to return here again... just the way Cracken had planned it.

Katani docked up with the Star Destroyer that was to carry him to Belkadan, noting it's name; the Sanity's Requiem. How fitting.

The Captain of the Sanity's Requiem turned out to be a man by the name of Tistre. He proceeded to tell Katani the whole of the story of how he'd risen up through the ranks of first the Imperial Navy, and then the Neo-Imperial Navy. By the end of the narration, Katani was ready to list to the man a long list of grievances the Emperor had committed, starting with the destruction of the Jedi, continuing to the destruction of Alderaan, and ending with the destruction of the ability of Storytelling. He decided it would simply be easier to kill the man instead. But that would come after Belkadan. He still needed this ship, and this man, to get him where he needed to go. The curses of necessity.

The Star Destroyer dropped out of hyperspace well outside the planet Belkadan, partly for reasons of avoiding an ambush, and partly because Katani had insisted that they didn't want to be close when the shooting started. He pulled out of the hangar bay, and found that a veritable fleet of ships hung over the planet. Apparently, someone knew he was coming.

Well the line: "We count 30 Rebel Ships...." is pretty rouf. The acual number could be 24 or 48. In the Novel there are 4 squads. so presumably Green and Blue were there, we just didn't see them

((OOS: Shields are the biggest concern, and your 160 SBD is still far better than the normal X-Wing 50 SBD; you'd actually have a shot at taking out the outer shield generator and still getting out. Plus I understand your laser cannons are capship level (at least, Starr thinks they are, and he's the one planning this thingamajig)))

*Starr pilots the transport to the Crimson Star's surface, seeming to grow more nervous by the moment. Droid TIE fighters, along with miscellaneous other TIE types, pour out of the moon's ports.*

Starr: Wherever there's TIEs going out...that's where the shields are down.

*Starr flies the transport into a stream of TIE drones. The sight of so many TIEs moving past the transport in the opposite direction is unnerving, despite the party's knowledge that they could not be seen. The transport flies safely down the wide chute deep into the core of the Crimson Star. They reach an open inner level inside the moon, and the party spots several chutes through which drones are entering rather than exiting*

Starr: Let's try one of those...

*the transport enters one of the chutes and is suddenly sucked forward at incredible speed. They eject right in the middle cavern of the Crimson Star to behold the sight of the massive Titan suspended in the center of the core*

Starr: Look! It's the Super Star Destroyer! Cracken's command ship!

((OOS: @Admiral: Your timing is a wee bit off...we're inside the Crimson Star now, there's only the SSD Titan there I'll assume you said that when we were entering

And the reason nobody asked for your army: Starr didn't think of it ))

Starr: Hurry! We have to get to the command chambers! *shuts his eyes and concentrates* This way! *runs to the second-to-nearest entrance and sabers the door open* Follow me! Watch out for Reborn!

*As they run, Starr comms Flax, a microjump away with the NR fleet* General Flax! Get here ASAP! Transmitting your flight plan---*taps buttons*---now! Take out that shield generator and then take out the superlasers! You'll have less than twenty minutes before they can charge! Go, go, go!

*The party run down a corridor, heading toward Cracken's private inner sanctum. But, before they can get there, they are jumped. Two reborn behind, two in front, along with...*

Reletha. You have a tendancy for backing the losing side...

((oos: Damn Lag ))

One of the reborn goes after Odin. The two engage in combat. The relatively small hallway, prevents the use of everyone using a lightsaber (after all two side by side , swinging would most likely hit each other)

Pulling a vibroblade, Odin lunges after the reborn. The ensueing combat between the two, is violent but the reborn was obviously new and inexperienced.

Odin finally pushes the blade through the reborn's eye, spilling blood everywhere. Whipping the blade on his pants, Odin looks around to see if anyone else needed help.

*As the battle outside waged, the New Republic commanders were nervous... not one of teh Crimson Star's weapons fired.

Then, the Anti-Matter cannon pulsed with energy, and blasted a capital ship to oblivion, the shock wave taking a chunk out of two near by cruisers. The superlasers began to erupt in an impressive display of precision targeting, taking out cruiser after cruiser. then silence. Turbo lasers began licking the fighters and the remaining cruisers.
Down in the shaft, the fighters began thier runs, only to find what started as a peaceful nav, to a fight for thier lives. Ion cannons spoke angerly, disabling many of the fighters. Flax's fighter's shields hold, and manages to get to the main reactor core. Suddenly, his ship is rocked with a tremendous force, lurching forward, than it stoped. He looked around, and saw a massive Ion cannon sitting in the "reactor". He'd been tricked.

The Ion cannon smashed down his shields with a single blast. Rather than falling, Flax's fighter is pulled towards the opposite end of the dummy "reactor", by an invisible yet powerful force... tractor beams. His fighter is rapidly drawn into a waiting hangar and smashed none to gently into the opposite end, knocking him unconscious. Imperial guards surrounded the fhighter, and forced the cockpit open, firing several stun bolts into the cockpit... They took no chances. The Jedi Binder stood waiting, and he was secured in.

*Starr backs away from the fight, and wrinkles his brow and shuts his eyes in a look of concentration. He puts forward his hands, and...

..suddenly the Reborn go flying, with a shocked-looking Reletha flying after them. Starr grabs Odin and Deac and points to a spot on the wall ahead in the hallway*

There! It's disguised with a hologram! It's the way to Cracken!

*Starr Force-speeds away---and sure enough, right through the wall. Deac and Odin follow---

And suddenly a huge durasteel door slams behind them. They can hear another close behind it, and another behind that, and several more behind those. The room fills with knockout gas. The ceiling opens....to reveal a gigantic ion cannon. An enormous bolt engulfs Deac and Odin and fills the room, and then all there is is blackness.*

((OOS: Disclaimer: This post has been written by both Cmdr. Cracken and me via Instant Messenger to keep the number of necessary replies down.))

*Cracken sits in his sanctum, in deep meditation. a cloacked figure walks into the room.*

Cracken: is it finished?

*The figure keeps his head bowed in reverence* Yes, Master. The illusions of the Reborn, Syrnl's daughter, and the Force-cloaked room were successful. Deac Starkiller and the one named Odin are now in our hands.

The figure lifts his head. It is the face of Starr Hailfire.*

Cracken: Good. you have done well, my young apprentice. *Cracken's chair swivles, and he now looks down upon his charge* you may rise. *Cracken gets up, and motions Starr to walks beside him* and what of the New Republic Government? have they answered our offer for surrendure?

Starr: No, my lord. They still refuse.

Cracken: I see. i must attend to that buisness myself. have the fleet jump to Coruscant. I will discuss the surendure with them... personally.

Starr: Yes, my lord. *he walks out of the room, and then returns a few minutes later* We are on our way.

Cracken: Good. *Cracken and Starr walk down several hall ways, and end up in a large command chamber. four figures can be seen floating in the far end of the large chamber, suspended in Jedi Binders.

((OOS note by Redwing: Think the thing Dooku had Obi-Wan suspended in in Episode Two on Geonosis. In this RPG, they're being called Jedi Binders, for lack of better term.))

A blue hue fills the room. Techs are feeding a small reptilian animal... a Ysalimari, one for each of the men in the prison Cracken built: Flax, Deac, and Odin. Three. The fourth Binder has no ysalamir for it. Termand Rwos floats unconscious inside it.*

Cracken: Well, gentlemen, i see your little adventure is at an end. May i introduce my apprentice, Starr Hailfire.

Starr: *smiles wickedly* I can't believe you took it seriously when I 'destroyed' the 'Sith apprentice' that had somehow magicked its way onto your ship. You should have suspected many times, but especially then. I thought my act was rather transparent, myself. Oh well, too late for you now...pity. If you hadn't listened to me, then none of you would be here, and you might have still had a chance.

Cracken: by now you have realized you cannot destroy this station, as teh anti-matter would be enough to annihilate... well, you do the math. especially.. when we're in the very heart of the galaxy... *Cracken waves his hand, and a large viewscreen flickers on. Coruscant*

Cracken: i doubt you will try any heroics now.


((OOS: If anyone paid attention to the prophecy in the Cantina 5...this was foretold ))

Coming back to consciousness Odin stares viscously at Starr. Unknow to the others in the party, Odin carries an implanted beacon, designed to go off in case he ever became unconsioucs.

*on the world of Asgard*

Einherjar comm officer: Inform the councel that something has happened to Lord Odin.

Einherjar soldier:As commanded.

Later during the council sesion.

Vidar(standing in for Odin):It is agreed then, we go to war. We either retrive Lord Odin, or die with him and the rest of the galaxy.


*back to Odin and the others*

Einherjar left to guard the ship, begin to get blood thristy. When the beacon goes off, they decide to fulfill their desire to kill the enemy. Moving stealthly down the corradors they come upon a group of reborns talking about the captives and where they were kept. After the reborn finished their conversation the Einherjar pounced.

Each taking their own Reborn by surpise, the Einherjar disguise themselves as Reborn, and move to the location of Odin, leaving hte four enemy soldiers in the corrador with their throats slit.

Wandering into the prison chambers, now occupied only by Starr, the Einherjar take flanking positions. Pulling out never before seen weapons, the Einherjar shoot Starr in the back. He collapses in a momentarily stunned.

Rushing to Odin's side, the Einherjar tech officer, searches for a way to release Odin from his bindings. Getting frustrated, the tech officer takes his sword and destroyes the consoles. The act turning off the Jedi Binders. Releasing a now very angry man.

((OOS: @Admiral:There are no Reborn. It was all an illusion, there to give something to slow you down and give Starr an excuse for not being able to find Cracken immediately

Plus if you actually broke free (yet) Cracken could easily destroy Coruscant. I hope Vidar didn't mean that part about dying with him and the rest of the galaxy ))

*An enraged Odin rushes at full speed...straight towards the Einherjar. He swings his sword and stabs the Einherjar next to him, and then stabs the next nearest Einherjar before they have time to react. Force lightning comes out of nowhere and knocks the other two Einherjar unconscious as they try to reconcile their Master's transformation.

The illusion dispells as the Einherjar fall. The command chamber appears to expand in size, revealing consoles still intact and Binders also intact on the other side of the room. Starr Hailfire, breathing hard, stands over them as they fall into unconsciousness.

Starr: Now that's done. *to the guards that fill the room* That should have killed them...would have killed them...but these "Einherjar" seem to be as tough as Odin described them. Take their weapons, strip them, and put them in the cellblock suspended in vacuum. If they manage to escape again they'll simply die.

*turns towards the captives, still in the Jedi Binders* NOW do you see that it is HOPELESS? Fools! Nothing will stop my master from taking control of the galaxy. And if any of you try anything, Coruscant will be destroyed! *Starr strides out angrily*

*Rwos stirs, showing his first signs of life. His binder is suspended above the other three. He looks down at Odin and the others below him*

Odin...Flax...Deac? All of you? No...

((OOS: No, Starr doesn't know about the beacon; small oversight...

*waits for Deac and Battledog to reply with their reactions*))

*Cracken is seen simling with glee*
Calm youself, young apprentice. They shall get thiers...
*Notices Flax stirring*
Well, i think one of our esteemed guests is waking up.
*looks at Deac*
How does it feel? hmm? to have that mangled thing you call a body? a pity. i could have given you a new one, you know. but alas, your fate has been chosen. Like Vader, you are more machine than man.
*His comlink chirps* Ah, well, i must be off. I must give your governemnt credit. They refused every offer. now, i think i have an offer that cannot refuse.

*To Starr* "Entertain" our guests. *Points to Flax* Him first.
*Starr gives a bow, and Cracken walks out. He strides down the hall way, and after a bit, he enters a hanger bay. His shuttle, prepped and waiting, and his escort entourage. He boards, and several decoys leave the station, all with the same markings and escorts. The make for Coruscant*

((@Redwing, make them Stormies then, point is Odin's Bodyguards found out where he was.

Also as far as the Aesir are concered, the New Republic is not worth their time. They enbrace death, and believe it is better to die then live among evil. If their actions to take out the galaxy then it makes no difference to them.

The Einherjar, are now extermly pissed at Starr. Further more, part of their training, allows them to see an illusionist after an illusion is cast. In other words anyother Illusion Starr makes for this group will not work. This is due to a very disaterous part of the Aesir's history with a master illusionist))

The two very disgruntled, yet unwounded Einherjar sit bounded at the feet of Odin. Feeling that the have been disgraced in front of their Lord, they wish for death. However for now they sastify themselves with the knowledge that their other two free comrades are alive, and will come to their assistance soon.

The two Einherjar that Starr stabbed in his attack are left for dead on the floor. Slowly their wounds heal as they direct the force inwards. Remaining perfectly motionless until their Lord Summons them so they may fight and die in glory.

((OOS: No, you can consider the Reborn that they saw Starr's baiting of a trap for them. That still works.

Wait...the Einherjar have been moved to a cell

*points to post*

If you want ummm...they can be with Odin in spirit or something?

(I disregarded that part since you placed the two that in a vaccum cell, if you could explain that, since I don't want them dead at the moment. To the best of my knowledge a vaccum lacks air, and next time pm me so as not to take up room.... Also why Odin has yet to do anything yet, so they may respond.)

Katani paused his flight into the system for a moment, and sized up the veritable armada that was arrayed before him. There were ships of all makes and sizes, from fighters to frieghters, he was sure he even noticed an Assualt Frigate in there. No matter, they'd all be doomed soon anyway. Naturally though, he was curious as to how he knew that someone would be coming. So, as any truly curious person would, he simply asked.

The name of the Assault Frigate, which Katani merely assumed would be the flagship of the fleet, went by the name of Happenstance. Although of a slightly older model, it was still a match for any ship of the same size in any fleet anywhere in the Galaxy. It's Captain called himself Otpio, he was born and bred on Belkadan, so he had a particular attachment to the place. Needless to say, he didn't want to see it destroyed.

So, when he was being hailed by this strange craft called the Conqueror, that had just entered the system, he was intrigued. So, of course, he responded.

"Happenstance here, how can I help you?"

"Hello, Captain. My name is Katani Chass. I'm here to destroy you."

"Yes, I knew you'd be coming. The prophecy has foretold it. The prophecy is fulfilled."

"A prophecy..."

This revelation shook Katani to his roots. He couldn't believe that someone had the balls to actually predict his future. On the other hand, his interest was piqued.

"Go on."

"Here, I can't explain it. I'll just read it to you.

One day shall come a great man's son
Who strives to rule o'er everyone
He shall place himself inside a Star
His Empire shall stretch both near and far

One day shall appear a Conqueror Without Equal
His insanity is the death knell for many people
Billions shall die because of his rage
A Belkadanaian Armada he must engage

United, together you all must stand
Though you'll be crushed by the pow'r of his hand
If you fight side by side
History shall remember how hard you tried

To the heart of the Rebel he shall send himself
Though it's citizens be be placed upon a shelf
Outside of his reach, though he tries hard
His destiny is to battle the star."

Now Katani was completely outraged. Someone actually thought they could prophesey what he would do. This was just too much. And insane! How could anyone think he was insane. Sure, he'd destroyed a few billion people and all, but when you think about it, is that really insane? He didn't think so. Anyway, this was just too much for him. Accusations, predictions, his mind was in turmoil. So, he did the only thing he knew to do. He killed.

The entire, ammassed fleet over Belkadan took all of twenty minutes to immolate. Katani was liberal with his Nuclear shells, and the ships were destroyed with ease, leaving but a few pieces of debris to mark their passing. A bit sad, if you think about it.

The only thing that seemed odd about this attack on the system though, is that Katani didn't finish it. When he looked down at the world, he couldn't bring himself to destroy it. He didn't know why, he just couldn't. So, he returned to the Sanity's Requiem, where the Captain simply couldn't stop buzzing with compliments about how incredible that had been. Katani wanted to buzz about a foot off of the top of his head. Finally, Katani made up his mind about where he needed to go. He had warned the Universe that he could cause damage. Now, he would cut out the heart. Coruscant. He would become a god.

*To Cracken* I'd rather be a Gamorean Dung Bug than side with a scum-sucking fascist like you. You can command obiedince, but I have one thing you'll never have-respect. I have a house army dying for me-do you think any of your troops would work for free.

And as for you, Starr, I can't say I'm really surprised. I've been around Syrnl long enough to know your stench. Something was wrong with you from the start, and that's why I hardly talked to you.

And if you destroy Coruscant, Cracken, what of your father's relics? Is he really your father? I'd have thought he could afford contraception. Clearly not. Besides, if you destroy Coruscant...

((OOS: Cracken left for Coruscant already, but I'll assume the Binders were rotated the wrong way at that time ))

Starr: *incredulously* Are you people always like this? *walking around the Binders to keep facing the rotating captives, saber ignited* Can't you see that you are beaten?

Rwos: You're a fool, Hailfire...all of your kind are.
*Rwos mentally searches for the controls to the Binders on the far side of the room as he rotates. Unfortunately, he isn't familiar with the technology being used, so he comes up empty*

Starr: *looks up at Rwos* Aha, the fourth member of the party...I bet you're impressed with your friends' gullibity? Or with your own, for that matter? Did you really believe Starkiller was dead, or you could defeat my Master?

*Rwos doesn't answer*

*On Coruscant, Cracken is in talks with the New Republic governement.. Things are... interesting.... *

Cracken: Gentlemen and ladies, please, you have daily burrecratic wars in takes MONTHS for anything important to be really decided. it's inefficiant, as it is... rather.... hurting to the people you represent!

Supreme Chancellor: It's what the people wish!!

Cracken: no, it''s what the people TORE from my father. rather violently, might i add. There were not talks, so political envo..

Supreme Chancellor: beccause he wouldn't allow it!

Cracken: Be cause he had the right idea.... *sigh*... let me put it this way.... *takes out a small device* see this? this controls the magnetic shielding in the Crimson Star, over head in orbit. I shut these down, and it's only 5 minutes before the anti-matter goes through the quantum armor. how many people can you get off the planet? in fact, the system? hmm? not many, i'd assume.

*The councle in in silence. they ponder the new threat*

All i ask is that conrtol be once again place in an imperial state. My father was an idiot, i think we all know that, but i learned from his petty and stupid mistakes.
*cracken places a document on the table*
I bleieve i need your signatures.

*One by one, they come, and sign. after 5 minutes, the treaty is legal. Cracken was now Emperor*

good. now, you may all stay here. there shall be no exiling, no executions. no quartering or house arrests. all i ask is a peaceful tansfer takes place.

*they all nod, and leave. The Palpatine line is once again at the throne. Cracken smiles. He places his self destruct detonates in his cloak, and places a small holoprojector ion te table. The signal goes t the capture room. Deac, and his 3 comrades see him. Star kneels*

Well, my friends, it is done. I am the ruler of te galaxy. I could give you all very nice jobs in my new regime, if you wish... a final offer, if you would. but,i doubt you will tke the offer. a pity. so foolish. the galaxy is changing, can't you see that? these... representitives will not be killed. they are my liasons to the people of the galaxy, unlike my father's rigime..
*he frowns in thought*
...... anyway, i offer you one last chance, join me.

STOP!

OSS: Crackan: Read my last post again. I suspected a trap, I had the entire fleet jump out, most damage you could do is destroy elevan fighters. Which you didn't, Red Nine is Olin Garn, so he got away. Since the squad is all elite I'll give you 5 stops, with 6 getting away. The fleet is safe.

*Flax awakens*

Flax: Ah, so the prodical scum succer is revealed.

*Flax passes though the binder as though it was water, he smiles, and dissapears.*

((OOS: @Flax: Cracken's attack occured about a half a minute after you gave the order for retreat. The fleet couldn't have jumped out in that time, especially since the Crimson Star is large enough to produce a small gravity well. But Cracken's post indicates that he did not destroy all the fleet:
"Then, the Anti-Matter cannon pulsed with energy, and blasted a capital ship to oblivion, the shock wave taking a chunk out of two near by cruisers. The superlasers began to erupt in an impressive display of precision targeting, taking out cruiser after cruiser. then silence. Turbo lasers began licking the fighters and the remaining cruisers."
presumably as they made their escape. Note: This is way too far after Endor for the New Republic fleet to be the same as the one seen in Return of the Jedi, so do not limit your fleet to theirs....it sucked anyway!

Oh and note that the Crimson Star's shields are not down any longer. I noted before that they can only go down in sections, that there are multiple reactors (without convenient shafts to go down), the superlasers can fire multiple times once charged up, and the antimatter cannon does not take a day to recharge. If you people would read over other's posts, you'd notice these kind of inconsistencies between reality and what people's characters (*cough*Starr*cough*) say

Battledog: Can you explain how you passed through the Binder like it was water, especially with no access to the Force (you were surrounded by ysalamiri, remember?)

Oh, and Deac: Re-check the continuity outline topic I posted. ^_^))

Starr: *prodding Rwos* Don't you remember? Don't you?

Rwos: *rotating* Remember what?

Starr: The prophecy. What your 'informat' told you.

Rwos: What about it?

Starr: The shadow and darkness falling over Tatooine on its path to the heart of the galaxy. He even gave you the coordinates to the very cantina in which I met Deac Starkiller.

Rwos: *neutrally* You must feel very proud of yourself.

Starr: Don't you get it yet? The beauty of it? I was the shadow, the shadow of the darkness that is my Master. And already we are in the heart of the galaxy, and you are all too late to stop us.

*Deac speaks up, clicking his head* Cracken-I have an offer for you. Take this thing out of the system--Or everybody dies. Simple as that. You have 2 minutes.

*Flax awakens*

Flax: Ah, so the prodical scum succer is revealed.


((OOS: Battledog, in your next post please explain your next action ))

I'm sorry guys, I have a habit of underwriting my posts.

A jump takes seconds, especially since all I did was have the Def.II target the 'Star with her main guns. I knew the fleet wouldn't stand a chance against the 'Star, so I had the Defiance open the shield and sent my fighter though.

The Cap ships were lined up on an escape vector as they jumped in, so the whole fleet got away.

I'm sorry I forgot to put in *The Fleet jumps*
