Wow, this story went way dark! Cilghal had been furious with Corran for him not letting her know what was going on with Jacen. I?d love to see that scene written! I like Cighal, but I bet she?s no push over! Poor Jysella, I know she will be fine. She?s no Padme after all. ?I know they mean business, Tahiri. Get to the top turret gun and have one of the other Knights take the lower. Doran, strengthen those aft shields and keep an eye on the ceiling. I?m going to get us out of here.? I liked seeing Corran take charge and fly with awesome skills. Having never read the X wing books I never got the full force of pilot Corran! Very cool! I may end up liking him due to your writing of him. Dur hated to grovel and someday he wouldn?t have to. As soon as Centerpoint was completely functional, it would be Jagged Fel who did the groveling. Yeh, right, that?s a delusion! Jag sat back in his chair and Dur fought the urge to squirm from the younger man?s penetrating gaze. Suddenly, he wondered if that Jedi stuff could be passed to someone else. The Emperor?s fascination with Jedi was well known and the man was even married to one. He had heard stories that Jedi lovers formed some sort of mind-reading bond. Then he remembered that the Emperor?s wife had been a Killik Joiner. Maybe she has rubbed off on him, he thought, as Jag continued to scrutinize him. Those thoughts were cool! Jag is more Jedi than Han...really! Within thirty minutes he was breaking out of Bastion orbit, heading directly to Centerpoint. He had to destroy that hideous clone before he was old enough to destroy Corellia. ?bout time Gejjen, get with the program! He knew she was on that ship and something truly died in him when he watched the Anakin?s guns open up on the transport. It wasn?t really pain that he felt, but he knew that whatever life he had dreamt of as Ben Skywalker was really gone forever. He was sure his father-in-law was flying because, if it had been anyone else piloting the ship, it would have been destroyed. His wife and son would have been killed and he would have done nothing to stop it. I?m not sure even Anakin as Vader was that cold. He only really flipped after Padme died!!!!
