    Less than two hours now.

    I'm happy to revert her within at Port Haven whenever. Your character can be catching some shut-eye when we emerge, so if you want to post now, you can have your character going and getting some rest.

    Nice dream sequence, and post.

    Yav's ship is not one that shares information between bridge and crew all the time, so quite possible that Xan thinks / thought DD was on its way to meet the Mercs.

    Or that he was having a vision of the future where he had already lived the event of the DD meeting up with the Mercs o_O

    [face_dancing] welcome back [:D]

    great post Mac :D I have a feeling when Fress and Josch finally meet up, it'll be clear on who the other in the dream is I bet ;)

    Even if he had lived through meeting up with the Mercs, if he knew that was not why the ship was going to Port Haven, his "memory" would not be of it going there to meet the Mercs. Just that they happened to be there.

    curious though, whats the plan once we get out of hyperspace and realize the blockaide is there? Do we instantly put in a call to the Jod military for backup?

    I don't know the range of an interdictor's gravity wells, but these are the steps as I see them.

    1. Emerge from hyperspace a little bit EARLIER than intended since encountering the gravity well should cause all visiting ships to make an emergency reversion.

    2. Sensors detect the Interdictor April Dancer, a 600 metre Imperial warship, and perhaps notice she is the source of the gravity well, and why no-one's hyperdrive is working. Might also detect the Lancer-class frigate, Hard Eight, which got brought out of hyperspace, same way we did, and is just hanging around watching.

    3. Port Haven is only the third planet, towards the centre of a seven world star system, so if we do detect the blockade around Port Haven, it will be via long range scan, compared to the interdictor. An Imperial Star Destroyer has the sensor range to cover an entire star system, so up to you if your freighters and starfighters can match an ISD's range.

    4. The DD's only objective will likely be to disable the April Dancer so we can escape, since we, apart from Mac, don't know there are any Mercs here.

    5. Fress' team, coming in on a rescue mission, will likely either stand off and try to call the Mercs, or sublight past/around the April Dancer on the way to Port Haven, and then encounter the main Imperial presence.

    6. Time-wise, I suppose my lot will reach the system before your lot, so there may be a fight going on by time you all arrive.




    Kommando, fantastic post. Really well written.

    Falcon, does Fress ever have visions of the future? Or to put it another way, when she has her visions, can she always tell whether it is past / current / future?

    If she decides to call for Jod backup, would it be on the basis of knowing for certain that Lasso is already there, and in trouble, because if it was a vision from the future, she could call the cavalry in, only for Lasso to turn up later and ask what everyone is fighting about.

    I know Lasso is already on the planet, I am talking about what Colias can tell from a Force vision, and how much effort and resource she can call on, based on it.

    She already had two visions of Lasso being in danger.That is the reason why she pulled everyone out of smugglers run sooner then expected. Yes it would be based on her knowledge that Lasso is already neck deep in trouble.

    Should she just call Jod before readjusting her jump to Port Haven? Would that be okay?

    Thanks Sith.

    As for the plan once Fress's group gets in system, maybe the few Merc forces that will be arriving in the system could hold the line/take out April Dancer until KoJ can get to the system, the combined forces drive a wedge into the blockade and the Mercs planet side make a getaway. I don't know how long it would take the KoJ forces to get into the system, or if they would even come. At least that's my assessment. The only other route I see is a big distraction battle involving the inbound Mercs and potential KoJ force in which the Mercs planet side can sneak through the Imperial blockade.

    JOD can be thereTwenty minutes tops, Bravo came up with the idea with red space which takes a fraction of the time it takes for a regular ship to make the jump. Making the call before getting to Port Haven would be best since Fress already knows they will be going in hot. Having backup arrive at the sametime would lean more towards their favor in being successful in their rescue mission

    As long as Fress has the comm codes to the Jod, which she should since we're working with them now, then yes, its okay. :)

    Correct.

    I should be able to get to tags by this weekend or Monday. I'm sorry for the delay. :( Things are finally starting to normalize somewhat, to where I'm slowly getting back on routine.
