    The Trianii let the silence linger for a few minutes more before reaching out with the Force.

    Nothing.

    No other lifeforms that he could sense. Evidently they'd given up the chase. [I think we have waited long enough,] he rumbled over the comlink, and keyed for engine start.

    The DarkLancer blasted clear of the cometary tail, and reoriented itself for hyperspace again. Sanomar hoped there wouldn't be any further interruptions.

    Out of hyperspace, and into the chaos.

    The stardock ahead of the Unbreakable was one of the closest to Naboo's borders, and had been one of its strongest.

    It had been devastated. The ruined, twisted shapes of exploded ships drifted silently in the darkness against the flickering, dying lights of the star station.

    Abriel was on his feet as the battle stations alarm went through the ship. One of his aides was tugging at his arm, telling him to get under cover--until Abriel turned, and with a backhand, broke the man's nose and sent him sprawling.

    A few anxious minutes passed, but there were no hostiles.
    "Sir," said the comms officer hesitantly, "we're picking up distress signals from inside the station. There's survivors in there."
    "What happened, lieutenant?"
    "We're efforting that now, sir. Best indications at this point are that some large force came out of Republic space, from the trail of ...wrecks, sir."
    "Republic space?"
    "Vector seems to be from the direction of Naboo, sir."

    The rage boiled in his veins. It was time. No more. They'd given him the last peace gesture he would offer.

    He turned slowly to his communications officer. "Signal Bastion and the Homeworlds. Summon every available ship. All fleets are now on a war footing. Prepare for the Phoenix Option."
    The Lieutenant paled.
    "Yes," said Abriel softly, looking back out at the ruins of the star station, "we are going to invade the Republic."

    Brand felt the cool air as the cargo bay doors opened and the ramp was deployed.
    Daryan ambled past him and Master Obree, eager to initiate the jump.
    Brand didn't see any equipment on Daryan that would help him on the long descent towards the Temple surface. He turned and gave Master Obree a curious look.

    "..uhmm...how exactly are we doing this again?" Brand inquired of the Jedi master. The Jedi Knight was more than eager to help liberate the Jedi temple from it's unworthy occupants, but he was not looking forward to becoming a stain on the Temple's roof top on his way down. He was all for Jedi heroics, that was what jedi did, but since this was his first jump, and it did seem to be exciting, he would need a little coaching before attempting such a daring leap.

    Daryan Karitas

    The Padawan grinned at Brand's sudden discomfiture and picked up a pair of belt-pouch-sized devices from a rack by the wall. He tossed one to the Knight and the other to the Master, taking a third and clipping it to his own belt. "These are grav-jumpers," he said as he did so. "Corellian design...they work the way parachutes do in societies that haven't developed repulsorlift technology yet. Hit that red stud and the lower half of your body is surrounded by a low-power repulsor field that slows your rate of descent. It allows you to basically skydive out of a cargo bay onto a surface hundreds of feet below without coming to a...sudden stop." Daryan grinned. "I nearly needed a change of undertunic when I first tried it, but you get the hang of it pretty quickly."

    With that, the Padawan hit the red stud and somersaulted off the end of the cargo ramp, free falling for a half second before the repulsor kicked in and his descent slowed to a gentle downward drift.

    Brand turned and gave Master Obree a curious look.

    "..uhmm...how exactly are we doing this again?" Brand inquired of the Jedi master.

    Ktala smiled, as she looked toward Daryan. She was familiar with the little...manuever. Not one she particulary relished...but, not as bad as some others she had been forced to do.

    Padawan Daryan grinned at Brand's sudden discomfiture and picked up a pair of belt-pouch-sized devices from a rack by the wall. He tossed one to the Knight and the other to the Master.

    Ktala clipped it to her belt.

    "These are grav-jumpers," he said as he clipped his to his belt. "Corellian design...they work the way parachutes do in societies that haven't developed repulsorlift technology yet.

"I nearly needed a change of undertunic when I first tried it, but you get the hang of it pretty quickly."

    Ktala was maintaining a straight face, as Daryan finsihed his sentence. He then hit the red stud and somersaulted off the end of the cargo ramp, free falling for a half second before the repulsor kicked in and his descent slowed to a gentle downward drift.

    Ktala looked towards Brand. "Dont worry..it's not as bad as it looks. Besides, my swoop is nearby just in case."

    Ris'sa closes her eyes a minute to focus, before she too exits out the ship, pressing the red button on her belt.

    She aims for an area, where she will not be seen...and wehre there are probably people still at.

    The Jedi council chambers roof. She begins using her Force abilities, to either sleep whoever might be inside....or to make flee the area.

    Fiona
    Coruscant-Galeran Diner - Meeting Chamber

    REPOST****

    Fiona noticed the returned nod before she had dissapeared back into the room. She stood quielty off near the doors as the others talked.

    Jahanara nodded. "Then let us begin." She said shortly.

    Well, it seemed that everyone that was going to be here was indeed already here.

    "Be assured that whatever is spoken within these walls, stays here."

    Senator Von Straub paused only in case of any interjections, but there were none. Then he turned his seemingly perennially impassive aristocratic face towards Senator Skywalker.

    "We need to know exactly what is happening in Naboo to better lend you aid good Senator, you are not alone or abandoned. I exhort you, do level with us. I'd much rather hear the account from you than from the HoloNet."


    She looked up at Senator Von Straub. "I do not know what is happening on Naboo at the moment. The queen, my sister, has not communicated with me recently. I thank you for your concern, but we have little information as of yet."

    Senator Morwer spoke up.

    "Information has come to me, that the Imperial Ambassador has left Coruscant...Quickly. And that we are picking up a strange sort of interference in the area."

    Fiona's ears twitched as she listened in. She also kept her eyes on her equipment scanners.

    Senator Morwer walked around the table. "We dont know if the supposed fleet that was about to head to Naboo was turned around or not. One Jedi had been dispatched to the area, but we have not heard from them either."

    He turned and spoke to Senator Skywalker. "Forgive me, but if Naboo has fallen under attack..you will receive no news, until it is too late...if it isnt already. Is there anyway we can contact them on a secure channel?"

    Coruscant, Aboard the Freedom Lancer


    Brand listened intently to Daryan's instructions, and was somewhat reasured by Master Obree's words.

    "Corellian Grav-jumpers...hit the red button, uh..nothing to it. swoop nearby just in case....uh, right. Got it."

    Brand observed as both Daryan and master Obree performed the daring leap with utmost confidence. He processed all the pertinent information. The way the jumped, the timing in which they hit the red button, the flow of their bodies. Seeing them jump first really helped. Brand gave a sigh, and then with gathered determination, he imitated Daryan's jump and somersaulted out the hangar doors and into the waiting sky. He hit the red button and immediately felt the repulsor field engage, as it began to arrest his rate of descent. It was quite a thrill indeed. Now he felt like he could do this all the time.

    Being the last one to jump down, Brand made sure to steer close to his fellow jedi, but not too close. It would not do to land exactly on either of their heads.

    Nick

    Nil'tia sat watching the chunks of ice slam about, barely moving. She looked hard to see if anything was still out there.

    She didnt see anything.

    Soon....she felt the ship start to move.

    [I think we have waited long enough,] Sanomar rumbled over the comlink.

    The DarkLancer blasted clear of the cometary tail, and reoriented itself for hyperspace again.

    Nik'tia opened her eyes, when they had cleared the ice field, and looked around.

    She slowly unstrapped herself, and moved towards the front of the ship.

    Sliding silently in the seat next to Sanomar, she reached over her console, and started running a ships diagnostic reading.

    Nick decided after that manuever, she deserved a drink. And she was very glad, he never pulled that manuever, when she used to chasing him.

    Nick sent out a silent stream of curses in every language she could think of...and made up a few.

    She hopped nothing else was that fun.

    Daryan Karitas

    The Padawan thumbed off the red stud as his feet touched down on the Council balcony. He crab-crawled into the nearest shadows and crouched down, pushing out with his senses into the area.

    Brand's presence was a bright green flame a few metres away, dropping towards the balcony. But where was the Master...?

    He sensed Master Ktala's shimmering red/gold presence well above them, on the roof of the Council, felt ripples in the Force as she put forth her strength, sending confusion into the Councillors' rooms below.

    ...and there were four--no--five ripples in the Force within the chamber, suddenly awake and active.

    He frowned. They'd have to pick up some comlinks when they got inside; telepathy was difficult for him. He winced, and pushed his thought out towards Master Ktala: Whenever you're ready, Master.

    Brand figured out the landing sequence in time to prevent an accident. Thank the Force for a sharp and logical mind.
    Brand noticed that he had landed on a balcony, and quickly moved to take cover, lest he be spotted. He could not see Daryan from his position, but he could sense the Jedi padawan's presence nearby. Above them, he could sense Master Obree's slow and controlled descent, but what was impressive to him, was the fact that he could clearly sense as she exerted her control of the Force towards the floors below them, and their effect.
    Brand shifted focus and sensed below their location, and there...he could sense sentient beings losing conciousness or fleeing the floor. Master Obree's was a subtle and effective non-aggressive attack.
    Something that was truely impressive and inspiring to Brand, since he was used to dealing with the business end of his lightsaber.
    The Jedi knight waited until Master Obree had safely landed and then contacted her using the commlink he had aquired earlier when preparing for the mission.

    ["Ready for the next phase, lead. awaiting instructions. over".]

    Ktala

    Ktala landed on the roof of the council chambers, well above the others. She concentrated in the Force as she put forth her strength, sending sleep in some, fear into others in the Councillors' rooms below.

    There were four--no--five ripples in the Force within the chamber.

    Ktala then felt Daryan mental comment.
    //Whenever you're ready, Master.// The contact was weak. Reaching inside her belt, she pulled out a comlink.

    //CATCH!// She sent back to Daryan, as she tossed a comlink to the young man.

    As she continued concentrating, she looked for Brand. She felt him land close by. Good.

    She continued her shift, to get the councilroom clear...as she did, she gently wove another ability into play.

    Battle meld.

    She wanted to make sure, that they all would be able to function together. There were many things to take care of here...uncluding some she rather not think of at the moment. She did not know how many of the old leaders guard were force sensative..but she hoped not too many were fully trained.

    She drew her lightsaber, but left it unlit. She hoped she would not have to use it.

    Ktala then heard Brand's voice.
    ["Ready for the next phase, lead. awaiting instructions. over".]

    She sent verbally, and thru the comlink.

    //"Enter the council chambers, now."//

    They had doors they could enter from. She would take a more...direct route. Through a opening on the roof of the chamber ceiling.

    Brand managed to find a door leading inside. He tries the handle and finds that it is locked. Brand takes a moment to summon the Force and feels the tumblers within the door frame, he focuses on the locking mechanism...focuses and exerts his will upon it. After a moment, the locking mechanism yielded to Brand's force manipulation, finally releasing the locked door.

    Brand slowly opened the door and used the force to sense if anyone was nearby, despite the fact that Master Obree had just swept over the whole area with her Jedi powers. One could never be too sure...given recent events.

    Sensing no one about, Brand crossed the threshold and enters unempeded. He steps into the dim stairwell and slowly made his way down to the floor. There were several bodies sprawlled, facing down on the floor, but Brand could sense that they were still alive....only sleeping. He walked around them quite carefully, trying not to disturb their slumber. He tried to disarm some of them, but only managed a few. He quickly did a visual recon of the area coupled with a sweep with the force.

    ["floor secured."] Brand whispered into the commlink. He thought he sensed something odd in the Force, but at the moment it was rather elusive, and he could not get a fix on it.

    They had doors they could enter from. She would take a more...direct route. Through a opening on the roof of the chamber ceiling.

    Ktala can feel as one of the folks below her, uses the force to gain entry into the chambers. It is Brand.

    ["floor secured."]Ktala heard Brand whisper into the commlink.

    She floated down gently from the ceiling, carefully scanning the area around them. Her unlit saber still in her hand.

    She first sent her thoughts out towards those on the floor around them. She quickly pulled out a needler, and tossed it to Brand, pointing towards the bodies on the floor. She pulled out her own pistol.

    As she quickly made sure those who were on the floor, stayed on the floor, she felt a strangeness.

    Ktala frowned.

    She hoped that what she felt it was coming from, were not too close. There was much to do..and after reading the report that she did, about the things...she knew when it came time, it was going to be very nasty.
