    Aqua left the cloning facilities leaveing his 100 troops to keep the facilities under control. Aqua set a course to the jedi temple in his personal frigit and jumped into hyperspace. Before he knew it he was right over the jedi temple and landing his ship. Right after landing he quickly launched himself into the air with his jetpack. He looked aroung looking for Luke, he was nowhere in sight. When all of a sudden he got a call "This is Luke speaking all jedi head to their ships I repeat all jedi head to their ships" commanded Luke. Aqua then realized it was finally time to put a end to the sith he quickly headed for his frigit and took of with all the other jedi into hyperspace. He then put his 5 other nearby frigits on hold as Aqua tried to get contact with Luke, Aqua had no idea where the sith lord was hiding therfore he had no choise but to tell his 5 frigits filled with 350 troops each to stand by while he gets more information on where him and the jedi were heading.

    On the Gurthang Luke gathered information that his and Jacen's ARC Captain was heading after the Sith with them but didn't know where to go. "ARC Captain Aqua, we and the main fleet are headed towards the second moon of Lijuter." Luke ordered.

    Drov had made it to Naboo and back to the amassing Republic fleet around Lijuter in record time, bringing with him a fleet a good few dozen cruisers strong. He pulled his fighter into the Flagship of Luke's fleet and quicklt headed to the bridge to speak with him.

    "So, what do we do now, knock on the door?" Drov said. "Or do you reckon he's figured out that there's an entire fleet staring down at him." he added with a grin. "Now let's mobilize and take out any ground based defense systems, I suggest rapid orbital bombardment aimed at all high energy use areas. We should scan for all areas that are consuing large quantities of energy and take them out." he continued, looking out at the moon before him.

    Luke looked at Drov. "Well Drov, I was thinking , that we would make a campaign across the planet. First make a hole in their space defences, then land troops, north of his base. His base is sort of like a fortress with powerful Anti-air cannons, so, the Gunships will have to on high alert. The main bulk of our troops shall attack the fortress and the rest will deal with the enemy all over the planet. We have almost every single trooper here. We will have victory." Luke said, before turning back towards the planet.

    Turing towards Nyle, Luke looked at him. "Procedd with the attack, Commander."

    "Do not think that numbers can win a battle. It was always when the Alliance was at it's smallest that it won, and you mustn't forget, it only took two Sith to topple the Republic, and the Jedi Order." Drov said. "If the gunships go down and those anit-aircraft guns are still active they won't stand a chance. I suggest firing our ship mounted ion cannons to knock those systems out. They might also be able to disable any shield arrays they have set up. Then we should be able to land no problem.

    Drov proceeded to open a channel to all of the fleets. "Warriors of the New Republic, this is a momentus occassion, a chance to finally purge the galaxy of the Sith, an order bent on destruction and corruption. We are all united in a common goal, to defend and preserve that which the Sith would destroy, freedom, peace, democracy, life." he said. "Everyone, remember we are here to end the millenia of chaos that these few, twisted individuals, these few beings who have devoted their existences to the forces of evil, we are here to finally bring balance and peace to the galaxy. May the Force be with us all, may it guide us, keep us strong, keep us focused, and keep us safe in it's embrace." he said, he then cut the transmission and sat down, taking a moment of silencs as he focused on the Force, pearing through it to see what lay ahead. Once he'd done that he shook his head and stood, then headed back to the hanger.

    "Luke, do not even once let your emotions rule you, do not let your confidence cloud your vission of that around you. May the Force be with you. If you should falter even once, it will be the end of all." he added as he walked through the door to the bridge, a solemn expression on his face as he walked to his fighter, jumping in and taking off.

    "Alpha flight, you're with me, Beta and Delta, take our wings. When Luke gives the signal we're going down to the planet, full artillery, it will be our job to pave the way for the infantry." he said to the fighter squadrons under his command. "You have all been faithful to the Republic, you will all be remembered as those who helped to free it once and for all." he added as they fell in behind him.

    Reaching out with the Force in his meditative state, Darth Serat sensed his opponents. It was time. Ion cannons, open fire, he willed through the Force.

    On command, hundreds of shots rang out from the surface of Lijuter, as the CIS fleet began its counteroffensive. And now it was time for one last touch.

    Serat's eyes closed tightly, as he concentrated... concentrated...


    A massive force projection of Darth Serat appeared in the space near Lijuter-2. "Enemies of the Confederacy of Independent Systems," he began, pointing an outstretched finger at the Republic Forces, "For too long have our planets suffered under the subtle tyranny of the alleged New Republic. For too long have our systems been led by the nose by a small oligarchy directing the direction of the galaxy. For too long have we lacked control of our own destinies."

    "Today, the CIS shall finally emerge triumphant, free of the shackles of oppression that the Old Republic, the Empire, and the New Republic have all cast on us. Today we shall all..." he stretched his massive "arms" out to encompass a large section of the CIS forces, "Be free!"

    Features: rounded tall rectangle head shape, black hair with reddish tinge at certain light angles, slight bluish tinge to tanned pink skin

    Height: 5'11''

    Weight: 184 lbs

    Eye color: bright red (jokes that it makes him look possessed and proceeds to curse his father for it)

    Gender: Male

    Rank: Captain (Leader of ad-hoc starfighter squadron "1st Composite Starfighter Squadron)/ Jedi Knight (on probation at time of outbreak of hostilities)

    Habits: Meticulously checks his fighter before going out, pops his knuckles by pulling back on his fingers with his thumb when hes thinking about something, sarcastic and a smart mouth

    Strengths:
    -Tenacious fighter pilot
    -skilled in pitched fights especially against other starfighters
    -Unorthodox lightsaber combatant that can engage multiple opponents or one opponent equally effectively
    -intrinsic, natural link to the force that doesnt have to be actively maintained but rather switched on or off (for basic maneuvers, levitation, manipulation and more advanced techniques require a bit of concentration)
    -ingenious gunsmith and lightsaber constructor
    -ambidextrous (does not favor either hand in any task), -is willing to use any techniques light or dark in order to protect his friends
    -excellent tactical leader

    Weaknesses: Sometimes too headstrong, can be pessimistic, relapsed alcoholic, mistrusting of any association past or present with a perceived enemy, harbors a slight grudge against Luke Skywalker and another Jedi master

    Personality traits: Sarcastic, determined, headstrong, eager to act rather than wait, resourceful

    Clothing/Armor: Two different outfits
    - Advanced New Republic flight suit, flight boots, advanced helmet (incorporated look/shoot capability for torpedos/missiles), flight gloves.
    - Brown Swoop (motorcycle) boots with a copper buckle near toe cap, Blue/Gray or black pants sometimes displaying first-class corellian blood stripe, either a gray red or black shirt, black with red stitching rancor-skin swoop jacket, copper colored reflective sunglasses with matte gray frames, black and copper colored wrist chronometer (wristwatch) displaying local time and Coruscant time.

    Starfighter: E-Wing Mark IV Escort Fighter, custom design
    - two laser cannons deleted (dorsal and left side) replaced with a rail gun (Mass driver, dorsal slot), and a modified concussion cannon (fires multiple smaller blast balls, think shotgun)
    - Proton Torpedo launcher modified to accept other Torpedo types as well (Homing, Plasma, concussion, other types)
    -Torpedo launcher targeting system is synced to a helmet-mounted target designation system, allowing Corton to shoot a torpedo at any target he can put the reticle over, even ones at right angles to his fighter (does not apply to guns)


    Lightsaber: Unique design: Forked Emitter setup (two emitters, one straight, one below it at 45 degree angle emitting a much shorter blade)which both emitters are slightly recessed and blended into the grip, Cortosis weave between emitters, dual phase setup that is rigged to produce a thicker main and secondary blade rather than a longer one, shorter overall maximum blade length due to single hand grip fighting style (look up Forked Lightsaber on Wookiepedia if its giving you a headache, same idea, just a bit more blended together rather than looking like a Y pipe lol)

    Hilt description: Curved-Hilt (to same degree as Count Dookoo's) two-handed grip style length, slightly thicker towards the back away from the emitters, matte copper/rust finish (not rusty though), Fraxin Shark-skin wrap around the grip itself

    Prefered fighting style: Hybrid style (jokingly called Form X by a few), which incorporates the following
    - Form II Stance (Modified for less linear fighting and more open)
    - Form IV Force-Assisted movement and power strikes
    - Form V
    Shiem: Defensive maneuvers

    Luke glanced around his fleet, and smiled. "All fighter squadrons, ATTCK!!!" Luke ordered as thousands of ships came from the several thousand ships. "Then, LAAT's, when a hole in their outer defences are boken, you shall land north of his fortress. Drov and his squadron shall take out the Ion cannons. To victory!!!!!!!!!" Luke yelled.Turning to Nyle. "Commander, get the troops ready."

    IC: Corton Brask, piloting his E-Wing as squadron leader
    *Out of a ripple in Hyperspace, seven more Republic fighters appeared. However this was no ordinary squadron. Rather than seven similar aircraft, the V formation had an E-Wing at the front, with another E-wing, two X-wings, and solitary A wing K wing and B wing fighters. Not only that, all had different markings and colorations, indicating they were all from different squadrons

    They made a wide arc and took up a flanking position alongside the main force

    On the lead E-wing, painted with olive green markings with an off-white base indicating that it came from one of the frontline squadrons, Corton Brask took stock of what was about to happen.
    Despite his not being an active Jedi for a long time, he still had an intrinsic connection to the Force, and he sensed that there was a rather powerful Jedi somewhere, one that he was familiar with, but he couldn't exactly say who*


    "Well, better announce our intentions, there's been problems with sleepers before" He said to himself

    *turning his comm system to a Republic channel that was reserved for command staff, he relayed his orders*

    "This is Captain Cortan Brask, Tactical name Crossbow 1, leading Composite Fighter Squadron One.
    Command re-assigned us from the MC80 Liberty to your task force.
    We're under your command now, where do you want us?"

    "I am General Tahn, we're going to be going in fast, so keep your shields up. I want you all to alter your shield harmonics to match mine, they'll hold off multi-wavelength attacks, laser-fire, ion cannons, physical projectiles. It will keep us from getting shot down." he said to the wing member. "Now when we get through the atmosphere I want everyone to fly low, and when I say low I mean dust clouds low. That should keep things off of us. Now once we get to the ion cannons I want full bombarment, I don't want a single one left standing. Now I don't want every fighter on the cannons, I want one flight on air support attacking any ground troops, or aerial squads. Ok now let's move." he ordered, and he and the good couple hundred fighters behind him poured down into the moon's atmosphere.

    He then sped down to the surface, skimming the ground with his fighter. "Ok everyone, focus all missles and torpedoes on the nearest cannon, I count about six surrounding the main complex, I also count several anit-aircraft turrets and heavy artillery. Beta-flight I want you to go after those turrets, Delta, after the artillery. Alpha-flight, we're going to take out those cannons." he added, then as his flight continued foreward, the other two turned off to their respective targets.

    Luke walked along the bridge of the Gurthang. Suddenly the ship rocked. "Sir, we have been hit by ION Cannons, but the sheilds are holding." Nyle announced. Luke glanced around the great battlefield. "Sir, we have a Seperatist capital ship, coming near." Nyle announced. "Prepare for close combat." Luke ordered.



    NPC:Kyle Katarn

    Kyle and his fourth squad air corpse were taking down droids here and there. "Odd ball, form up behind me." Kyle ordered. He swerved out of the way of several blaster bolts. "General Katarn, there are several Vulture Droids coming our way." Odd Ball announced. "Good, the more the marryer." Kyle said, before switching his starfighter to attack mode.

    IC: Corton Brask, making planetfall

    *Corton grinned, those stupid droids were going to find out what the Kitbash Mob were capable of. He switches his Comm over to the squadron wavelength*


    "Alright, you heard the man, adjust your shields accordingly. When we hit dirt, we're going to split up, find an Ion Cannon and hammer it until it implodes.
    Crossbow 3 and 7, the heavy stuff is your department. Crossbow 7 you fly vanguard for them, keep their tails clear.
    Everyone else, we're clearing the skies. Keep each others tails sanitized and we'll come out of this ok. Crossbow 2 you're taking lead, Crossbow 6 you keep Joker's tail clear, Crossbow 4, its us again.

    *it only took a second for the droid on board, R7-V7, to adjust the shield harmonics*


    "In the words of my former C.O, ALRIGHT YEE DOGS! FOOOOOWARD!!!"

    *With a reciprocating cry from the other fighters on all channels, the Composite wing lit their engines and charged furiously for the planet surface, never once backing off the throttles for anything.
    The gunners on the ground must have been surprised by the sheer speed alone of the seven ships, or the fact that once they were barely above the surface, that suddenly four of them split away. Coupled with other ships entering the airspace, the fire suddenly went from concentrated to frantic and scattered.

    Corton liked this, it meant the enemy was confused and had lost the edge, something he intended to exploit.
    Yanking back on the stick and making a wide curve, he settled in behind one of the Droid starfighters. Initially he was going to use his laser that was permanently set to repeat, but a sudden jink from the bandit made him quickly switch over to the Concussion rifle and pull the trigger. The bolts flew out in a wide spread pattern, smashing through the left side and destroying it.
    Behind him, Crossbow 4 fended off other droids, lashing out with triple fire from his laser cannons and swerving at them.

    Closer to the ground, Crossbow 7 had already knocked three droids out, but now they were moving so fast that any droid coming head on would have had one bad time trying to turn that quickly, which enticed the B-Wing/E crew to crack jokes on the Comm, with the Gunner's quips being the norm*


    "Really? All those supposed tac sims and they can't even catch up to this old Cross?"

    *The pilot of the K-Wing was much more business oriented*


    "Cut it out Crossbow 5. Coming up on it Mek, got the solution?

    *The Sullustan bombardier checked his lock one last time then called it*

    "Got that Ion cannon locked, releasing weapons...now! Full shot!

    *The K-wing was designed to put a lot of Proton Torpedos on target in a hurry, and the crew knew how to do it for max effect too. 16 Proton Torpedos came away from the external hardpoints and streaked towards their objective.
    At the same time, the B-Wing ripple-fired four more proton torpedos. The ion cannon at the far side of the emplacement suddenly found it in the cross hairs of 20 proton torpedos, 20 Kilotons of overkill.
    The K-Wing pilot reported Back*


    "Torpedos away, 10 seconds to impact. Whats the story up there?"

    *The story was good for the 1st Composite. Both of the two ship teams had been slashing through droid fighter squadrons and keeping each other safe.
    It was then that the pilot of Crossbow 2, a Duros, noticed another fighter in trouble. This guy must have been new, because he was either scared or unaware of the fact that a droid had the A-Wing in his crosshairs.

    Taking the initiative, he rolled the fighter over and opened up with his X-Wings 4 cannons, a perfect surprise attack.

    Corton reported back to the General*


    "Crossbow lead, Crossbow is in fine form! Anybody need any help?

    Serat was impressed with the swiftness of the Republic offensive. His forces were still holding there own, of course, but still, he was impressed.

    The Dark Lord of the Sith was less impressed, however, with the openness of their assault. Based on various reports he gathered, aside from a small force stationed at the Jedi Temple, this was the entire fleet. "Total openness. A bold gesture, Skywalker..." the Sith Lord remarked aloud, his eyes still clenched tight in meditation, "But it's important to always save your best Pazaac cards for last, and your good ones for later. So perhaps it's time to pull out my first little "surprise".

    Fleet 2, move into position. Commence firing.

    Several large Sith cruisers suddenly came out of hyperspace behind the New Republic forces, and quickly began a simultaneous bombardment of the Republic capital ships and a full-scale fighter deployment. Within minutes, they were inflicting severe damage on at least one ship.

    "Now, Jedi, whatever will you do?"

"Tell Alpha Squad(24 Capital ships, four Thousand starfighters) to make up the defensive on the rear." Luke ordered. "I want them gone." Luke said. Suddenly he remembered something. "Master Corran, you and your fleet(30 Capital Ships, 18 Thousand Starfighters, 4 frigits) head back towards Courscant." Luke ordered. "Yes sir." came the reply. Luke turned as the battle unfolded.

    "Exellent, keep it up." Drov said as he spun rapidly toward hi target, the first of one of the Ion Cannons, he unleashed a volley of proton torpedoes, blasting a massive hole in it's shielding, he then launched a single missile, blasting the core of it sending shrapnel into several approaching fighters, shredding them apart. Suddenly Drov sensed a huge shift in the Force, the enemy had called in it's fleet, and it was big. "Brask send a detachment from your group back to the fleet, it's in serious trouble, I'm sending a few of my own." he added punching in orders for some of his squadrons to fall back to defend the cruisers. "I'm sensing a serious imbalance in the Force, we must act quickly." he added more to himself than to Brask, he then opened a channel to Luke.

    "Luke, I have a feeling that Serat may be using an old combat strategy, he's using battle meditation. He's sensing our movements before we make them. I need you and any Jedi you can spare to counter act his movements before he uses the technique to manipulate the turnout of the battle, we can't afford to have him get the upper hand, we need to stop him at all costs." he said to the Jedi Master. "If we do nothing that is what we will become." he added as he blasted through yet another Ion Cannon. "Give me the word and I'll take an assault squad to invade the enemy fortress." he continued as he swerved to dodge flying debris.

    Kyle and his squadron made to a small patch of enemy frigits. "Alright men, this is where we shall nake the hole." Kyle ordered as his ships went around the frigits and started distarcting them.

    There was a hole in the defensive line. Regroup nearby squadrons to cover sector 2-A, there has been a breach. Remember, the enemy cannot defeat our combined might. We will be victorious today. Darth Serat had nearly forgotten the secondary role of battle meditation: While it was certainly useful for organizing troop movements, it also had a rather beneficial link to everyone's morale.

    Which, of course, meant that his next move was obvious.

    Forces of the Republic, you cannot hope to win. You throw your lives away while our battle droids are impervious to fear and pain. You are all going to die in vain. To compliment that effects, he bolstered in several raw emotive sensations with his message: Fear, death, agony, sorrow...

    It couldn't directly result in chaos, although it could. More importantly, it would sow the seeds of doubt.

    OOC: I'm going by the description in the 'Essential Guide to the Force'. I'd say it's a bit more concrete.

    IC: Drov Tahn

    Drov could feel the Sith manipulating the emotions of those around him. "Well it looks like I have no alternative." Drov said. He then threw himself to the will of the Force, entering a deep meditative state while still flying his fighter and fighting the enemy, attacking yet another Ion Cannon as he began to counter Serat's technique with his own. While droids may not have fear, their minds are weak and more easily manipulated, and those who serve under the Sith are more prone to fall under the influence of their fears. he stretched out, reaching out to each and every mind, both his and the enemy forces, strengthening his own while weakening the enemy.

    'Armies of the Republic, do not fall to the prattlings of this Sith Lord, do not allow his influence to take hold of you. Fight back with all you have.' he said through the Force. 'You are stronger than he knows, use that strength and drive him into the dust.' he added.

    Then turning his sights on the enemy he reset his thoughts. 'You serve a corrupt and evil leader, who will likely kill you no matter how this battle turns out, he will rip you limb from limb, tear you apart with merely a glance, and yet still you serve him. If you continue to do so, you will all die a terrible death at the hands of the one who commands you.' he said to them, sending with it images of the future, of countless droids an Sith warriors being torn apart by Serat. 'Do as you will, but remember what I have shown you, and chose your fate, death at the hands of your master, or a second chance with the Republic.' he added showing an image of all of the enemy forces being sorted into fitting areas of society, living peacefully, happily.

    He then let go of the technique, doing what he had done would be enough to end Serat's attempts at subterfuge. He then focused on another area of the Force. "Hey Luke, I have a little surprise of my own for the enemy." he sent in a com message to Luke. Suddenly a massive fleet, a good hundred thousand cruisers strong appeared over the planet, surrounding the enemy. "Let's see what Serat makes of this." he added grinning.

    *Corton was a second away from broadcasting his displeasure at Tahns orders when he felt the Sith attempt to sow disorder into the fleet.
    As a brash Corellian first and foremost, he merely snickered at the attempt. As a responsible fighter pilot and a Jedi, he then used a trick that he devised while not at the Academy.

    Going into a trance like state (and nearly plowing into the ground as well, scaring both his XO and his wingman) he reached out into the Force, riding the resonance of Darth Serats' message. He saw the second fleet out in space, and saw that their formation was centered around a circular shaped craft of some sort.

    While it was a general impression, it was enough to give him a tactical course of action*

    "Crossbow ships pull up, we're re-assigning."

    *Switching out of his squadron band, he went to the general quarters band*
    "This is Crossbow lead. Crossbow is pulling out of Sector 6 operating area, ships are out of munitions, somebody relieve us"

    *While it was a half truth, it was valid. Three of the ships had depleted their stock of torpedos and missiles, and they were going to be needed if they were to have any chance of cracking into that big second fleet.

    After a fast vertical ascent, they reached the Republic fleet. The A-Wing, B-Wing, and K-Wing branched off and headed for the nearest ship with a bay, an MC80 Mon Calamari cruiser. Since the K-Wing pilot had seniority, she sent the transmission*


    "This is Crossbow 3. 3 Crossbow ships need a rush Re-arm and re-fuel, requesting clearance to land."

    *Meanwhile, the pure interceptors of the squadron had lit their engines and taken off towards the fleet, mowing down Vulture and Scarab droids as they went. During a small break when they had no droids to contend with, Cortons XO, a Duros nicknaed "Joker", wondered about the validity of this action*

    "Captain, are you sure this is the wise thing to do? I mean there are droid fighters in our fleet, plus we don't have the heavy support ships with us"

    "Joker, it is nuts, and thats why it will work. We plow the way free of droids, the heavies come in under escort from the zipper and pound the stuffing out of the droid ship, and we generally wreak havoc with them. Its not about massive firepower like these Confederacy dolts think, but proper application, something we will exploit." Said Corton.

    *Joker considered this for a minute*
    "I see. Well, we should spread out, give them less reason to concentrate their fire"

    *Corton noted that he was right and made the call. The two E-Wings and two X-wings formed a long skirmish line, becoming smaller than pinpoints to CIS gunners. It was then they got their first nasty surprise as they saw what was disgorged from the Droid ship, as well as the ship itself. Crossbow 4 said it best*

    "Well this is surreal, an old Lucrehulk-class equipped with Tie/D Auto Fighters! ALl the more fun to swat down!

    *Corton had to grin, and as the first TIE/D's closed, Corton clicked over to his Concussion cannon again and opened up, in time with the rest of them. Soon enough, they had settled into their cover formations and were taking on TIE/Ds in groups, waiting for the bigger fighters to come barreling in with their heavy payloads, as well as any welcome re-enforcements*

    Darth Serat nearly spat in anger as any progress he'd made was summarily undone by that blasted Jedi, Tahn. "I should have killed him a long time ago..." he cursed, concentrating on simply restoring a state of equilibrium to the morale of the various forces. And, apparently, a large squadron had appeared to counteract his own. "Seems like it's time to give my little project a preliminary test."

    He reached out with the Force to his private task force. Prepare firing sequences. Target the nearest Republic cruiser. It appears we need to inject a little anarchy into their ranks through force.

    The task force commander merely nodded as he received the command. "Initiate firing sequence D-49a! Target Bogey 58c, 40% firepower, and for all our sakes don't miss. I want four triangulations of position before firing!"

    The operatives went to work, frantically punching in coordinates. There was a loud rumbling, and then, the commander turned to the view screen. A massive red burst shot out from the Lijuter surface, gradually engulfing and disintegrating the New Republic vessel.

    Serat grinned as he felt the cries of the doomed crewmen being gradually torn to pieces by his new weapon. It seemed his new toy was operational. Now if only they could get it mobile... The technology in this particular piece of technology was nothing like the Emperor's pathetic Death Star, and Serat was anxious to begin the instrumentation of his grand vision.

    There would be time for that later, though. For now, it was time to wipe out the New Republic's fleet.

    Luke watched in horror at a near New Republic vessel. It was blown to pieces by a blast from the planet. Suddenly, Luke turned the comm system to Drov. "Drov, I need you and squadron to try and either destroy or knock out that blaster. But first find it." Luke ordered.

    Then he turned to Nyle. "Nyle, contact all Republic Crusiers that we have made a hole through their fleet. Begin landing troops and Tanks north of the fortress." Luke ordered, before walking off towards his ship.

    Moments later, thosands of Transports and Gunships were realesed and landed out in the north of the base. Luke walked out to find forest. God this reminded him to much of Endor. Luke turned to Nyle. "The battle begins."

    Drov was smirking heavily. 'Good, Serat is falling for my little trap.' he thoughtm he had managed to pick up the energy signature of the weapon he'd just used, as for the ship Serat had believed to have been full of living beings was full of no more than spare bits, one of the hundred he'd called in for just such an instance, all the deaths he thought he had felt, a mere illusion. "Everyone form up, we're going to take out that S-Class Superlaser." he said, instantly a wave one thousand strong swept in behind him. He gunned it quickly to the lasers location and unleashed a wave of disruptor missiles, blasting a hole wide enough in the shields around them for he and a quarter of his fighters to streak in. He then unleashed an unholy barrage of proton torpedoes that merely scarred the armor on it's sides.

    "Alpha-flight the armor is too strong, I know it's dangerous but because of it's recent fire it will take time for it to open another attack, aim for the ejection point or exhaust ports." he said to those fighters around him. They scattered firing into the mutliple exhaust ports near the base of the weapon, causing noticeably more damage, but still not enough to take it out. "That isn't going to be enough, I'm going in." he added then he flew right in range of the Superlaser. As he pulled up to the opening he noticed it was already charging. 'Sithspit.' he thought then he fired everything he had, sending it right down the collector shaft, to the power station at it's base. "Everyone, pull out!" he shouted, the fighters scattered away from the weapon as it began to erupt from the inside out. Meanwhile the blast sent Drov and his fighter soaring, the shockwave fracturing his wings and nosepiece, and sending debris into his cockpit, cutting his arm as he brought it up to block it.

    His fighter skidded to a stop near the base of the fortress, Drov pulled himself from the wreck and fell to the ground, nursing his wounds. He then grabbed his comlink. "Luke, mission destroy the superweapon is a success, begin landing our troops. I'm at the fortesses soutern base, I'm going to have my fighter squadrons form up back here to keep Serat's eyes off of the north. I'm injured but nothing a little cauderizing can't fix. Hurry up though we don't have much time." he added, he then cut the transmission and took out one of his lightsabers. He ignited the blade and brought the blade across his wounds, sealing them up, pain soaring through his arm he hissed in agony, but it was better for the long run, at least he wouldn't bleed himself into a coma.
