    I think we should kill Melarnn Tecc off on this mission. He/she hasn't posted in who knows how long. All in favor?

    <<Hey Idiots Array, Melarnn is in the new Talon Squad. We can certainly kill him off in the new mission if that is what Talon wants.>>

    Reyanna stood with Carre and Greywolfe on the bridge of the Dark Star Destroyer. If the coordinates that Leithos had given her were correct, they should be able to locate the Hover Sphere and Mulder with out any problems.

    She turned to her allies, "We are going to have to do this quickly. With the way Mulder has been destroying planets lately, the entire New Republic will certainly be on top of him at any moment."

    "He is certainly drawing attention to himself." Greywolfe added, "I have received word from an inside companion of mine that he has not been in the right state of mind for several days now."

    "Yes, well...Mulder will be out of his misery soon enough." Reyanna hit some buttons on her wrist comp band and a hologram of the Hover Sphere appeared on the control table between them, "Leithos was kind enough to give me this before I killed him."

    Carre studied the plans for a moment, "If Mulder is as bad off as you say, it should not be a problem getting on board." Her evil eyes sparkeled, "We have the perfect way in...Darth Ash. Mulder would not suspect him."

    "Perfect. I will accompany him, along with my squad." Reyannas mind started to put a plan together, "Once on board, I will have Captain Skerro take control of the Sphere. I will deal with Lord Mulder pesonally."

    "Once you get on board, the Sphere will need to be moved quickly." Greywolfe played an evil smile on his lips, "I certainly would like to avoid any entanglements with the Republic."

    "So it is agreed then." Carre stood and walked to the large viewport, to stare at the Hover Sphere and Mulders two escort ships that now filled the window in front of them, "When Mulder is out of the way, we move to talk control of the Empire."

    "Yes my lady," Reyanna smiled and placed a hand on her stomach, she could feel her child growing inside her, "It is something I have been looking forward to for a long, long time."

    <<Hello... I will be VERY busy for the next week or so (finals <shudder> and other real life garbage), so don't kill off Mara, and for Carre's allies... keep up your wonderful evilness. I will try to post for Mara and Carre before I leave town on Thursday, but I can't guarantee anything.>>

    Trika was in her X-Wing, checking her controls and really wishing she had spent more time cleaning up in the cockpit. There was a weird sticky substance in the bottom; she would have to make sure to check it out later on.
    The other Talons were set to exit hyperspace at any moment. Trika's chrono ticked down, and she grabbed the levers in anxious anticipation.
    "All Talons check in," Lead's voice came on through a burst of static.
    The numbers came in; everyone was there.
    Trika's chrono expired, and all of the Talons exited hyperspace at the same time...right in the middle of a Hover Sphere and two SSDs.
    "Oh, Force..."

    "Heads up, looks like two full wings of TIE's on the way." Quis tried her best to sound calm. "I've got your wing, Ken."

    "Copy that."

    Quis picked up a new reading on her scanner, a YT-2000 freighter. It could only be Orlantha.

    "Talon Squadron, this is the Liberty's Vengance. Requesting permission to join the party."

    "Permission granted, Vengance, providing you're on our side that is," replied General Ski.

    "But of course. Quis, I told you I was on my way. Honestly, the Republic Military is always in such a hurry to do battle. Have you ever heard of biding your time?"

    "Doesn't apply when innocent lives are at stake, Axen" said Quis with as much false bravado as she could muster. She could swear she heard Kendrick chuckling over the comm.

    "Alright, cut the chatter," ordered Ski. "Here they come!"

    Someone - it sounded a little like Ric - cheered and laughed. Quis settled back in the seat and massaged the controls as they closed with the TIE's.

    <No problem Mara. Have a wonderful vacation.>

    Reyanna's communicator went off as soon as her and Darth Ash had entered the hanger bay of the half completed Hover Sphere. Gaining permission to come aboard had been easy...It appeared Mulder still trusted Darh Ash and Reyanna had remained a silent passenger. However, Mulder we be able to feel her presence at any moment.

    Greywolfe's voice came over the link, "It appears I spoke too soon...we have company!"

    Reyanna glanced back through the hangers opening, two fleets of fighters now filled the void where complete darkness had been just moments ago. "Give me fifteen minutes. I want to find Mulders officers and his record logs. Hold them off until then."

    Greywolfe responded quickly, "We will not wait any longer than that Reyanna, we will make the jump to hyperspace in fifteen. Whatever you are going to do, do it fast."

    No one was there to greet the shuttle, the hanger was a buzz of activity as TIE's were being dispatched to attack the new arrivals. Reyanna immediately made her way to level six, to Mulders personal quarters. She had paid careful attention over the past six months that she had been by Mulders side...finding what she wanted had been easy.
    Several guards had attempted to stop her on her way out, but Reyanna blasted them and started to make her way toward the bridge.

    Darth Ash met her there, several of Mulders men were with him. Reyanna raised her blaster, but Ash held up his hand. "It appears some of Mulders men have lost faith in his leadership, considering his recent lack of control." Ash smiled and gestered inside the door, "Mulder is not here. I can't sense him anywhere on the sphere. It is possible he has maned a fighter."

    Reyanna was disgusted with the thought of leaving without Mulders blood on her hands, but things had not gone as she had hoped. "There is no time. Take control of the Sphere if you can and meet us at the meeting point in the Balvar system."

    Reyanna summoned several of Mulders guards to join her has she headed back to the shuttle. She looked down at the info disk in her hand...Mulders contacts and complete record of Empire bases and movement. It would indeed be priceless in their efforts to gain control upon Mulders death. She would let the Republic take care of that bit of business.
    With Mulders codes, adding a message leaving Dark Star Squadron in control of his fleet would be easy.

    Nash and the other pilots joined Captain Starkiller in the hanger and immediately climbed into their cockpits. The support techs swarmed over the ships, making sure droids were securely seated, belts tightened, hatches closed and the hundred and one other important last minute checks standard proceedure required were finished.

    As soon as the last of the techs were clear the squad was given the go ahead.

    "Light 'em up," Homer signaled to the others and the various craft engines roared to life, the repulsors they would use to clear the bay starting up their buzzing humm.

    "Lead ready."

    "2 ready."

    "3, good to go."

    "4, ready to proceed."

    The rest of the pilots counted off and stated their readiness. When the last one had called in, Starkiller spoke again.

    "Alright pilots, let's go, and try not to break anything on your way out."

    Nash waited her turn for right of way and manuevered her X-wing out into the eternal night of space. As soon as she was clear of the ship and the bay's magnetic field, she switched over to thrusters from repulsors and quickly fell into formation with the others.

    Am I on the Hover Sphere?
    "No..." Mulder shook his head, but then, in a twist of elation, Mulder smiled. "Yeeesss!"
    Mulder was indeed on the Hover Sphere. He was hidden, but still, nonetheless, on the Hover Sphere. He no longer trusted anybody. Darth Ash was no longer trusted. No longer trusted, was Darth Ash. Force, I've been doing too many SATs!
    Mulder crouched into a corner, quite eager for the game to begin. Somebody had to come seek him out sometime; they tagged him, he was it.
    No! Force, no! Mulder, grab a hold of yourself! You're a Sith Lord capable of plotting dangerous actions and killing people.
    Mulder snapped. Not only had his insanity caused him to trust no one, but it had also caused him to deny everything.
    The Sith Lord stood, completely sane. No doubtedly the traitors had come, either to destroy him or to find information. Mulder turned the corner of the east hallway, hand automatically grabbing the one coming towards him, lightsaber in the other at the figure's stomach.
    It was Reyanna.
    "My Lady," Mulder addressed her, the other squirming to get a grip on the blaster she almost had. The guards with her quickly disbanded upon seeing their leader well. "How nice to see you again."
    Reyanna struggled to grab the blaster, but Mulder teasingly knocked it aside with the Force. "I have all knowledge of what you are doing, and I'm not entirely pleased."
    Reyanna drew back and spat at Mulder face. "The only thing you want is power over us. We aren't your slaves!"
    Mulder grinned. "You are a foolish woman, Reyanna," Mulder suggested the lightsaber at her stomach. "Remember this: Darth Agent Mulder had you and your entire petty alliance in his grip. He saw your plan, saw the future, and let you go. Never forget that you are not infallable; there's always someone out there bigger and smarter, and they're watching." He had a glow in his eye like a thief looking upon a precious jewel. Mulder grabbed the disks in her hand; all the information she had come for.
    Reyanna escaped from his grip, staring fire his way and picking up a jog on her way back. Mulder watched her the whole way, turning himself back to the bridge.
    The crew was just as astonished.
    Mulder chuckled at the irony. "I have seen the future, and if my death weren't upon me like a dreary night, I'd have you all slaughtered for treason."
    The crew nodded solemnly, swallowing hard at the thought.
    Mulder continued. "All TIEs to their proper hangers. Set the Unnatural and the Sixth Extinction in a S274 offensive formation. And," he added, with a glimmer of evil in his eye, "let it be known that Mulder will not die; there will be another."

    Darth Greywolfe heard a beep, and checked the computer. "That's Reyanna's distress signal. Something's wrong." He picked up his two prized lightsaber, and began walking toward the hangar that held his fighters.
    Carre blocked his way. "You're not thinking of going after her, are you?"
    "We didn't count on Mulder being on that ship. We were prepared to leave Reyanna, but really, Sondara, are you prepared to leave her in the hands of that madman?"
    "You must be as crazy as he is!" she screamed.
    "At least you'll be in control of your precious fleet without me around!" he bellowed.
    A zenji needle flashed as it dropped from her hair to the floor. The clatter brought them both to their senses.
    "I apologize, my lady," Greywolfe said coolly. "But I can't leave her alone."
    "Fine," Carre said, pinning her hair back up. "Be back within fifteen minutes."

    The Eagle dispatched the Hawk, which was being piloted by the squad's droids- Stumpy, Deezy, H9, and Shorty the Pitdroid. A few remote ships launched as well, drawing away the Sixth Extinction.
    "Yes!" Obi-wan yelled. "One SSD to go!"
    All the fighters approached the Hover Sphere. The Salvos began to skim the surface, and the Unnatural followed.
    "All Salvos report," came Rosche's voice. "Hawk in," came a reply. Slowly, all the Salvos replied to the roll- all were leading away the Unnatural. "Talons, you are cleared to go!"
    Ty-gon blasted into the superstructure, followed by Trika and Mekial. Five TIE Advanceds had followed them.
    Trika shouted out a plan over her comlink. The scanning devices showed their paths through the Hover Sphere and their locations.
    Ty-gon quickly scrambled communications for the TIEs, and the three split up. The Advanceds followed different ones.
    When the three reconvened, the five crashed.
    "Talon Lead," Jinn shouted, "We're into the superstructure!"

    Making this post for LeiaB:

    <<Reyanna can't believe she would be that weak - sorry Mulder...guess again>>

    Reyanna stoped short of the hanger. If she was right, her fifteen minutes had past and surely Carre and Greywolfe had made the jump into Hyperspace. She would find her own way out, but she would not leave without that disk. It was her future, and her childs destiny.

    She turned down a seperate corridor and began to make her way back to the bridge.
    Mulder would be there, he had suprised her...no doubts there. Perhaps the rumors she had heard about him were false. He was indeed a powerful man...no...enemy. That was clear to her now, she must be cautious.

    The bridge door was open...around the corner, coming towards her in a seperate corridor she saw Darth Ash and a group of seven of Mulders men were with still with him. She closed her eyes briefly and communited with Ash through the force. One of Mulders men had the disk. She could see it clearly. She nodded at Ash and when the officer walked out, Reyanna was upon him instantly. She pulled him around the corner towards Ash and put the tip of her knife to his throat and pressed. It entered quickly and easily, silencing him instantly. Blood ran down and soaked the neck of his black Emperial uniform. Before the disk could drop to the floor, Reyanna had in her hand.

    She released the officer and he fell to the floor. She felt Greywolfe approaching before he saw her.

    "What are you doing here? You should be gone by now?" She asked him, throughly suprised to see him standing there.

    "I got your distress call and thought you may need some help." Ty-gon smiled and looked down at the dead officer and the growing pool of blood, "but it appears you are doing quite well."

    "I am now that you are here - we need a transport off this thing...quickly!" Reyanna replied. Greywolfe nodded and she took off behind him towards the hanger.

    Only once they were back on board the Dark Star did she breathe easier. She looked into Greywolfes eyes before exiting his ship, "Thank you for coming after me, my friend." She grasped his arm in a gesture of gratitude. "I owe you one."

    <<Thanks for checking in Mara and Insei.

    I hope everyone doesn't get the wrong impression of me. I'm not out to kill off your character if you are gone for two days. I can completely understand having RL commitments. I'm just trying to keep the roster clean of people who leave the story without any explanation and never come back. (like what I was under the assumption Melarnn Tecc had done. Sorry about that one Lazrand. Your two names threw me off and I thought you were gone. Again, sorry.) I really appriciate what Nomi Jade did in letting everyone know that she would be gone for so long. That just lets us know that she has other things going on right now, but that she is still intending to continue with the story. That's what I'm trying to do. Anyway, on with the story.>>

    Jaren twisted the B-wing's control stick hard to port as a structural beam loomed directly ahead. The large starfighter moved to his commands; a bit too sluggishly for Jaren's taste. This thing manuvered like a cubic ton of durasteel and had the acceleration to match, nothing like their nimble little N-1, which Telia was piloting.

    He turned in his seat to check the window over his shoulder. Yep, Telia was still there. She had skillfully matched his manuver and was now pulling ahead of him, leading a flight of TIEs. She zipped ahead of Jaren and he extended his shields around her while she setup for the next part of the manuver.

    This was something they had perfected just two minutes ago. Jaren would use the heavy armor and shields of his B-wing to cover the lighter shields of the N-1 from enemy fire while she used the mass of the B-wing to hide her from view while...

    There she went. Telia flipped the N-1 on it's starboard side and pulled a tight arc. She was now going back in the direction she had come, but if everything went as planned, the TIEs wouldn't see her coming right in their direction. They would only see the N-1 disappear behind the B-wing and she could catch them by surprise.

    The N-1 flashed past Jaren's B-wing and opened fire on the unsuspecting TIEs. Two went up in brilliant flashes of light and expanding clouds of ionized gasses while the third banked hard and came right in line with Jaren's guns. While the TIEs had been busy with Telia, Jaren had manuvered to a point where he could pick off any stragglers. Jaren fired and the TIE became just another mark on the kill boards.

    Jaren and Telia shared a quick 'good shooting' as they manuvered towards the Hover Sphere. It was time to put an end to Mulder once and for all.

    Trika, Mekial, and Ty-gon had landed inside the Hover Sphere. Where? Who knew...?
    "Okay, you guys got this?"
    Mekial and Ty-gon both confirmed their agreement, and Trika blew out a long breath. "All right," she said, "let's do this."
    Trika hacked into the computer system and determined their location. In order to destroy this thing, four reactors needed to be set off. Three of them, four reactors.
    "You guys cool with spliting up?" Mekial asked cautiously.
    "I'm fine," Ty-gon said, and Trika agreed. "Let's each take a sector; alert the other Talons to how much time we have once they are set off. Jaren and Telia should be behind us, so let's not forget to tell them."
    They all nodded and split, Trika heading toward the southern part. She was doing great until she noticed a figure talking in the shadows. She slipped by, groping along the walls and coming to rest in a doorway. She had been stopped for the next five minutes or so; people were too busy in this sector.
    Trika moved again, a little bit further before she had to hide again.
    Force, she hoped Ty-gon and Mekial weren't having as much trouble as she was.

    Obi-wan turned his X-wing and went in to a tight spin, nosediving away from the two TIE fighters that were following him.
    The two fighters were better pilot than the ones following his brother- they didn't crash.
    But he pulled an old trick Luke had pulled on Endor- he braked. The two TIEs went rocketing past him, and he fired the proton torpedoes into them.
    "Nice shooting, Talon 16!" yelled Mara's voice over the commlink.
    Then came TSL's voice. "We have three on board the Hover Sphere!"
    That brought on a cheer.

    Ty-gon, gun drawn and lightsaber ready, crept through the Sphere. He was in the hangar now. He ducked behind a construction pillar as he saw two people approaching, then recognized a familiar face. He gasped, and both whirled around to face him, but when neither saw him, they got on a shuttle and left. He called Trika and Mekial on his commlink.
    "I just saw Reyanna!"
    "What?"
    "Are you kidding?"
    "I'm not kidding, I saw Reyanna," he replied. "She and a man I've never seen before got into a Lambada."
    "Were they with Mulder?" Mekial asked.
    "No," Ty-gon replied. "I could feel them with the Force- they seemed angry at Mulder, almost afraid of him."

    Reyanna and the man now sat on the Black Star Destroyer with Carre, analyzing the disk.
    "You did it, Reyanna. Congratulations," Greywolfe said, putting down his lightsabers. "But that presence we felt- I'm sure by now that it was a member of Talon Squad."
    "That would make sense," Carre agreed. "There's a fierce battle going on out there, some snub fighters are attacking the Sphere."
    "They're insane," Reyanna said.
    "All the better for us," Greywolfe reminded. "Either the Talons will die- or Mulder will."

    Mekial ducked into a closet as a group of Storm Troopers passed her. After making sure they were out of sight, she ran down the hall. If Trika had been correct, the reactor should be right up here...

    There it was. She pulled out her commlink. "I found it. but I'm not sure how to rig it."

    "Alright, I can run you through the steps right quick, Mek." Trika said. "You still have the pack I gave you, right?"

    "Yah."

    "Okay, first you need to..."

    After about ten minutes the reactor was rigged, but hiding was becoming incresingly difficult as more and more Storm Troopers were coming in that area. She hoped Trika and Ty-gon would find the other ones soon. She hadn't set off the bomb that would kill the reactor. But if the Storm Troopers saw her, they would shoot. And if blaster fire hit those explosives...

    "Hey guys, I think you better hurry."

    Darth Ash watched the Black Star Destroyer take off. The disk was now safely in the hands of the others. Now it was time to take care of Mulder. Ash whipped out his lightsaber, slaughtering the several guards standing nearby.
    Ash deactivated the saber, and walked to the main bridge, where Mulder most likely was. Ash entered the bridge, where he saw Mulder standing near the main viewport, watching the battle unfold in space.

    "I know why you are here, Ash." Mulder said flatly.

    "You think so?" Ash sneered.

    "You want to take my place. By killing me you will also gain your Sith Lord status. Its a win-win situation. The only problem is, killing me wont be as easy as you think it will be." Mulder said.

    "We shall settle this now." Ash said, gripping his lightsaber.

    The guards on the bridge raised their weapons on Ash, not knowing for sure if Ash was threatening Mulder's life.

    "BLAST HIM!" Mulder shouted.

    Gunfire blazed towards Ash. He ran up the side of a wall, ignighted his lightsaber, and deflected most of the shots back into the guards. Ash somersaulted off the wall and landed on one of the still standing guards, and hacked him down upon impact.
    Two panels on the wall slid open, and two assasin droids stepped out. Firing rapidly at Ash, they made their way closer to him. Ash spun his saber around, and returned their shots back at them.But the droids were heavily shielded. none of the deflected blasts were even touching them. Ash Force-pushed the droid on the right, and jumped to the left of the other droid. As the droid fired at him, Ash flipped over the still standing droid, and brought his saber down on the fallen droid. And then in one quick motion, he pivoted the saber around into the midsection of the other droid.

    Now Ash stood up, and blocked Mulder's lightsaber from striking him. Mulder spun around and swiped at Ash's feet. Ash jumped over the blade, and parried at Mulder's head. Mulder ducked and stabbed at Ash's throat, but Ash pulled to the side, and swung at Mulder's side. Mulder blocked it, and continued his barage of strikes.
    The battle continued on for over an ten minutes. Mulder and Ash were quite evenly matched. Blood ran down Ash's arm, where one of Mulder's shots came a little too close.

    "Enough playing around. Time to finish the kill." Mulder said.

    Mulder brought his saber down on Ash's saber extremly hard, with a revived strength. Ash took advantage of this, by stepping to the right, and letting Mulder's momentum propel him farther than he expected, and let his saber go limp. Mulder stumbled forward, Ash spun around, and punched him in the back of the head. Mulder fell to the ground, and rolled back to his feet as quickly as he could. By the time he was standing again, Mulder could feel the white-hot blaze of a lightsaber go through his neck. Mulder dropped his saber, and crumpled to the floor. For good measure, Ash jabbed his saber into the back of Mulder's head.
    Ash grinned, deactivated his lightsaber, and wiped the sweat off his forhead. Ash picked up his commlink, and spoke.

    "Here this! Darth Agent Mulder is dead. I, Darth Ash, Dark Lord of the Sith, am now in control. You will follow my orders now. Now ready me a starfighter. I need to catch up with the Black Star Destroyer." Ash hissed.

    "Yes, sir." the commander said.

    Ash smiled again. His plan was taking shape. And now the hardest part of it was out of the way. But even though he now had free roam of the Empire, soon even it would be but a speckle of his power.

    Ash click on his commlink again.

    "And tell my contact with Black Sun that I will be meeting with them shortly." Ash said, with a wicked smile.

    (For some reason I have a feeling Mulder will come out of this one...)

    Cobra brought his B-wing port and fired a trio of laser beams at the closest TIE. It exploded. One more down, 2000 to go. he thought grimly.
    "Four," he called to Ric Ski. "Cover me!"
    "Sure, Two," Ric replied, as the pair of B-wings charged after more TIEs.

    Kendrick slowed his engines just slightly, glancing at his sensors. A moment later his wingman appeared back on his scopes. He'd lost her for a second in their latest skirmish.

    "You okay, Seven?" he called.

    "Yeah, I'm fine." Quis' reply came back clear and crisp. "Shields are just a little scorched."

    "Good." He'd been worried about her. Checking the immediate area for danger, Ken spotted a YT-2000 freighter chasing a TIE fighter off in the distance. "You ever going to tell me who your buddy on the Liberty's Vengeance is?"

    "Later, Nine. We've got business to attend to now."

    "Right." Kendrick twitched the fighter controls, nosing his A-wing to starboard in time to avoid a burst of TIE-laser fire. "You got this guy?"

    He sent the A-wing into a rolling dive. Simultaneously, Quis broke away from his wing, soaring in on the eyeball that had been tailing him. A single quad-burst turned the Imperial ship to slag.

    Whistling, Ken brought his fighter back into line with hers. "Don't hog them all!" he said, feigning shock.

    "I wouldn't worry." And here some of the playfulness went out of her voice. "There's still plenty left to choose from."

    Got questions as to my post? I have my reasons.

    Nooooo!!!!! Mulder!!!!!
    I guess that post is all right, Homer. I would have loved for him to go out some "X-Files related way", i.e. shot in the back of the neck, stabbed in the back of the neck, etc., but I supposed it's fine. Darth Agent Mulder is officially dead people. It's official.
    Give me a few minutes to grief as well as come up with a new post...

    The one named Darth Agent Mulder. He felt his death even from the hundreds of light years he was away from the spot. It wasn't like a wave in the Force; it was more like a tsunami. He supposed he would have control over Mulder's old sectors until someone else decided to pick up on them.
    Darth Alex Krycek silently tapped a switch located on his chair. Instantly, the entire room was filled with art, lots of art. The door to his chambers was opened and a figure stepped through the doorway.
    "Orison," Krycek nodded, motioning for him to observe the art. "Do you like it?"
    The Captain frowned. He had never seen the interest in it. "It's different, my Lord," he said just to be honest.
    Krycek smiled. "I saw Mulder's death long before he even knew he was going to die. Do you know how?"
    Orison shook his head.
    "Do you see the change in his brother's art around the time Mulder started killing all the Jedi?"
    Orison nodded just for the sake of doing so. He really didn't see it.
    "The texture," Krycek continued, feeling the Captain's lack of interest, "it's all laid out flat in front of me."
    "Yes, my Lord."
    Krycek turned the holos off, turning his swiveling chair into the light of the SSD. Krycek was a Chiss, a spitting image of Mulder in one light, the blue skin and red eyes shining with a new-found elation. He had been close to Grand Admiral Thrawn, studying under him and learning his passion for the very art of any culture that could bring it to its knees. "I have also studied New Republic art, Captain, and I think it's time for us to make our move."
    The Captain stood straight. "The Requiem is at your command, my Lord."
    Krycek thought for a moment before speaking. "Let's make a round to the old Tunguska sector. I want to be in a neutral place while I figure out exactly what kind of an Empire we have left."
