    Just a little bit more patience. There will be an answer to every question (at Christmas or so). :)



    Union of the Empire´s greatest Warriors


    "Full thrust. Helm, a course that brings us between the MC40-Cruiser and the Nebulon-B at eleven." Devas Vader gave his orders with the same calm he would have displayed when ordering a cup of tea.

    "Sir, the three NewRepublic-ships are deaccelerating." the officer at the "Shadow"s sensor-station reported.

    "Turbolasers, half power, spread over all three ships." came Devas quick order.

    All turbolaser-cannons of the threehundred-sixty meter long frigate, that could fire at the ships of the NewRepublic did so at half power. With their firepower reduced, the fire-frequency, the number of shots being fired per second almost doubled. Divided over three different targets even full powered shots were not going to cause much damage, but that wasn´t Devas intention. His sole goal for the moment was to prevent the NewRepublic-ships from launching their fighters by forcing them to keep their shilds up.

    "They are returning fire and the MC40 is rolling to turn his hangar-bay away from us."

    "Point-defense-gunners prepare for immediate fighter-attacks." Devas ordered over com-link. Then he pressed a button, that connected him to the hangar. "Hangar-control, i want you to put the warheads of twenty anti-ship-torpedos aboard our second assault-shuttle and make sure they are going to explode as one. As soon as the shuttle is launched, you´ll transfer remote-controll to me on the bridge." the clone of Darth Vader and Grandadmiral Thrawn hesitated for a moment. "Drop it cold." he added.

    The largest red spot on Devas´s displays seemed to break apart, when a dozen smaller points appeared next to it. Their signatures identified them as X-Wings. Immediately the twelve fighters formed pairs of two and then chains of four fighters each and Devas realized, that he had to do something very quickly, because the "Shadow" wouldn´t survive the fire from three opponents supported by fighters for long.

    "Helm, execute an eleven-three turn for an Aurek-Strike (=Alpha-Strike, Aurek is the first letter of Aurebesh, the alphabet used in SW and i somehow doubt, that the people in SW know greek letters). Two salvos of all cannons, followed by all proton-torpedos against that Nebulon-B."

    When the "Shadow" had turned its bow and main axis were pointing directely at one of the Nebulon-B-frigates of the New Republic. As soon as the three-hundred-sixty meter long warship was in position it ceased to divide its fire over all three capital ships of the NewRepublic and concentrated cannons, that could fire forward on the single opponent.

    Frigates of the Canus-Class had been developed by the Therilias-Autarcy with two purposes in mind: To protect and to patrol occupied space from pirates, smugglers and other unwanted elements and to actively and aggressively support other ships in battles against larger opponents. Based on the assumption, that only few groups of pirates were big or well organized enough to have hyperdrive-equipted starfighters and also based on the assumption, that in a large battle fighters would be carried by other ships, the designers of the Canus-Class-frigate had decided to renounce fighters and tried to give the ship as much firepower and as strong shields as was possible for a vessel of this size. The result of their efforts was a warship of which four could take on an ISD-I, eight an ISD-II. The frigate was armed with twelve heavy turbolasers, concentrated in six turrets with two barrels each. Two of those on the right side of its dorsal superstructure, two on the left side. The remaining two were on the ventral side, left and right of the keel of the ship, below their brethren on the top. Each of those cannons was of the same size and firepower as one of the eight barrels used in one of the heavy turrets of an ISD-II (of which the ISD-II had a total of sixty-four). Eight turrets with four barrels each housed the medium-sized guns. Four of those turrets were in the side

    Well then be sure to check this tale by FTeik as well:
    Tale

    Great fight FTeik. But i wonder why are there so few Jedi's? Is it because it's only shortly after the foundingdate? Or is it just because there aren't a lot of jedi?

    And i have a theory why Paar hasn't been seen by Qui. Paar unconsiously shielded himself.

    Since "The tale of Darth Vader´s Son" and "The Colliding of Empires" have been recently updated, this story should be next.

    Only question is "when?". (grin)

    Paar didn't shield himself. Somebody else was doing that. Who did it will be the big surprise for the next two chapters.

    As for the number of Jedi, i think during that point of time even hundred is a generous number. Perhaps half of those are at the academy at the moment, while the others are on missions spread over the NewRepublic. It also partly explains the "ease" with which the commando-team is eliminating them - most of the Jedi at the academy are still half-trained students, not full-fledged Jedi.




    Alright, enough of that, here is the next part:




    Union of the Empire's greatest Warriors


    >>>>"Assault shuttles are among the most-heavily shielded vessels in the Imperial fleet. Most combat starships funnel approximately 25 percent of their total power through the shield generators. An assault shuttle uses up to 62 percent power on shields, and over half of that power is channeled into the front arc. This allows the shuttle to withstand even the most concentrated barrage of fire for at least a short time. " ImperialSourcebook, Chapter 5.<<<<

    Accelerating rapidly the "Shadow" was quickly closing the distance between itself and the three ships of the NewRepublic. At the same time the three-hundred-sixty meter long vessel was rotating around its own middle-axis, constantely presenting a new side to the MC40-Cruiser, its escorts and their fighters. Devas Vader hoped, that this aggressive approach would surprise the enemy enough to give him enough of an edge about them, because he needed every advantage he could get. The only other point speaking in the favour of his and his vessel was, that he knew, what his opponents were capable of, while they themself were in the dark about the abilities of the "Shadow".

    With slitted eyes the clone of Darth Vader and Grandadmiral Thrawn watched in his displays, how the ships of the NewRepublic grew bigger and bigger with the declining distance. While the rotation of the "Shadow" might protect the ship by dividing enemy-fire over different shield-sections it made it also impossible to get a clear target-look long enough for the guns of the ship. At the distances that still seperated them even a centi-degree differance would cause misses by dozens of meters. The Therilias-Autarcy had been lucky enough to hit one of the Nebulon-B-frigates at the beginning of the battle. But while both sides were firing at each other with almost no results, the sensor-crews of the "Shadow" were working. Using every sensor and scope available to them they recorded the positions and movements of the NewRepublic-ships. At the same time they mapped the surfaces of them to get points of orientation on the outer hulls of the vessels. Bridge-towers, antennas and weapons-turrets were located and marked in position to each other as well as in position to the "Shadow". This way the sensor-crewers of the "Shadow" created a detailed coordinate-system of the NewRepublic-ships to each other as well as in relation to the "Shadow". This map was constantely updated and connected to a computer, which had all the data on the abilities of a MC40-Cruiser and the Nebulon-B-frigates stored. How much they could accelerate, how quickly the ships could be turned, how much stress from manouvering their hulls could endure. It also had the capabilities of the "Shadow" stored and was connected to the helm of the ship. Armed with those information this computer was able to calculate all the movements possible of the four ships. Of those he took the five most probable and presented them to Devas Vader. Since the incoming data was constantely changing and by this causing the entire procedure to start again, the clone had less than a second to decide - with a little support of the force - what to do.

    Finally the distance between the group of NewRepublic-ships and the "Shadow" had dropped to less than fifty kilometers. The fighters of the NewRepublic were ahead of their mother-ships and started to attack the lone frigate, aiming for weapons-turrets and sensors.

    Done. Finally. Just for the scene at the end i've written this entire story and it took almost four years to come to that point. Hurray.

    Tell me, what you think.





    Union of the Empires greatest Warriors



    Tionne stared at the man in shock, recognizing the prisoner taken by Han Solo and Chewbacca. But shouldn't he be laying inside the med-station, under the care of Chilgal and in a deep coma? Or had that all been part of a clever plot to get inside the Jedi-Academy? And if so, for what? And was the MonCalamari-healer alright or already dead? Behind her she could hear the surprised or frightened gasps of her wards.

    "Where is he?" the tall man demanded to know, pointing his crimson blade at the Jedi-historian and interrupting the confused stream of thoughts of Tionne.

    "What?" the wife of Kam Solusar was sure, that she had understood the question correctely, but not, what the man meant by it. Moving closer in a threatening way the dark Jedi raised his lightsabre.

    "My brother you stupid Jedi." Qui stated, his anger rising to new levels.

    "Brother." Tionne thought. "That explains the physical similarities." This wasn't the man Han Solo had captured. It also meant that Chilgal was still alive, if she was with her patient. "Try to open the door. I'll distract him." she sent a mental order to Miagel Kaats, hoping the man would understand her.

    "You'll leave us alone, if i tell you where he is?" Tionne asked, stalling for time and stepping slowly away from the desk of the bar and the door to the store-room with the hidden passage.

    "No. But if you stop wasting my time, i'll kill only you and let the children live." Qui stated impatiently. "It will be quick and painless." Not that the dark Jedi intended to keep his promise. If he and his brothers didn't kill the Jedi-offspring now, they would have to do it in the future.

    "Why don't i believe you?" Tionne wondered, while she reached for her own weapon.

    A feral grin appeared on Qui's face, as he stepped into a battle-stance. "Because you are smarter, than the average Jedi. Not that it takes much for that."

    The dark warrior's left hand pointed at the storage-room, where the three adult non-Jedi were pulling and pushing against the covered door, trying desperately to open it wide enough for them to pass through. "Oops. Seems your friends will still be here, when i'm finished with you. I hear them scream already. Perhaps i'll let you live long enough to hear it too. You're sure you don't want to tell me, what i want to know? You don't want to witness how i cut them into pieces." The Vader-clones were no sadists, who inflicted pain for their amusement, but if that was the only way to get the results they wanted, so be it. However that was something the Jedi didn't know.

    "It won't come to that." Tionne hissed. That animal might get the children, but it had to get them over her own dead body first.

    Qui answered with an amused chuckle. "Fine, we'll have it the hard way then."

    The smile vanished from his face and suddenly the dark warrior exploded. Tionne was barely able to parry the man's stab at her chest, then she had to step back to evade a side-cut and then another stab, she almost failed to block with her own blade. To the side she could hear the other adults and children increasing their efforts to get that centuries old passage open, but Tionne knew, that their efforts were wasted as long as the dark warrior fighting her was blocking the door through the force. The silver-haired Jedi tried a counter-attack, but her opponent parried and tried to stab her again. Tionne was forced to realize, that she was no match for the dark sider's skill, but with some effort she had been able to hold her own against the sword-masters of the order, so she had hoped to be able to do better against this Sithspawn. But the man was more or less playing with her. Another side-cut from Qui forced Tionne's lightsaber away, but instead of decapitating her in the back-swing the crimson blade only tore into her upper arm.. Pain raced accross Tionne's nerve-sy

    Now why am I reminded of Anakin and the Younglings in RotS?

    Sad to see Tionne bite it like that... but she went out the Jedi way, upholding the Code.

    Well, to be cynical... I think those civilian employees might have been throwing the bottles out of a sense of self preservation, at least partially.

    That sounds just like Genosis all over again! Only worse, because those fireteams sound a heck lot better than any old battle droid.

    Well, Chim seems to have most of his head bolted on straight.

    Another case in which you shouldn't take shortcuts, I guess.

    Kam seems to be taking things well enough... but I wonder if he'll slip into the darkside later on or go nuts, or both.

    Well, now that's a twist!

    Yeah, morn for Tionne as much as you want. I wonder, why i invested so much time to give Kilas Thelm a background ... :)

    And since when is self-preservation a crime? :)

    Fortunately the cavalery is here. Or will it get worse? Who knows.

    Yeah, after all a villain, who is just evil is boring. The fact, that the Vader-clones have some attributes we would call decent should make their evilness more creepy.

    Perhaps for a short time. Kam is a mentally stable adult (unlike Anakin Skywalker in ROTS) and knows, that this isn't, what his wife would have wanted.

    But one you could see coming. :)

    [breaths a sigh of relief]. Thank god. And i already thought this chapter shocked people so much, that - with exception of Pelranius - people were unable to respond. :)

    Isn't that obvious? Anakin took over the body of poor Paar.

    How long has it been? No matter the answer in any case it was too long, but what can i say? RL has priority, but i hope over the next weeks i'll get more calm to continue.

    Here is the next part:


    Union of the Empire's greatest Warriors (and yes i should get a better title).


    "You won't hurt my grand-children." Anakin Skywalker explained with deadly calm in his voice.

    It spoke volumes of Qui Vader's ability to process seemingly conflicting information - there was no shock at facing an opponent, who had his own face, no questioning "Paar, what are you doing?", no curiousity how it could be that a man, who was supposed to be dead for more than ten years was facing him - no, at the same moment his blade was forced to a halt in midair the clone of Darth Vader and Grand Admiral Thrawn stepped to the side, swinging his blade in a downward line against his opponents torso.

    Anakin Skywalker, unable to swing his own blade around in time and threatened by his enemies weapon let himself drop to the ground. He had expected Qui to hesitate - after all the man had been here to rescue him (well, the body he inhabited) - or to be stunned by the revelation of his identity. He had hoped, that Qui would be interested in the how and why of his presence, that his curiousity would cause the other man to ask questions, to start a conversation to sort this conflict out in a peaceful way. Even if the attempt at negotiations failed, talking could be used to distract an opponent, to force him to split his attention. More than once the man, who had turned into Darth Vader had been accused of trying to talk his opponents to death. Negotiating wasn't part of his usual modus operandi - never had been actually - but it had worked for Obi-Wan from time to time and Anakin Skywalker was all to painfully aware, where his way to do things could lead.

    Unfortunately Qui Vader wasn't doing him the favour and with regret Anakin Skywalker realized, that the other man had his priorities right. By blocking the strike of Qui Vader against his grandson Anakin Skywalker had brought the blade of his opponent between his own sword and his body, what the other man tried to exploit immediately. Qui's move to the side and downward prevented the former Darth Vader from escape by simply bending backwards and letting the blade pass over him, which would have given Anakin Skywalker the time to bring his own sword around. The only other option would have been to jump backwards, but that would first have brought him away from the children and as a second the former Darth Vader wasn't sure, how far a jump would have carried him. For more than twenty years he had been enceased in heavy armor and the massive weight he had been forced to carry had influenced his fighting style. But now, back in a strong, healthy body there was no need to put as much strenght or force into a move.

    In other words Anakin Skywalker wasn't used to fighting almost naked.

    So he let himself drop to the ground, using the Force to soften his impact he swung his blade with the left hand around, aiming for the feet of Qui Vader, who almost dance-like stepped over the blade and then - once he recovered his stand - brought his own weapon down in a Force-empowered stroke, but this time Anakin Skywalker - now holding his sword with both hands again - was able to parry by keeping his blade parallel to his body.

    "Anakin!" - how odd it was to call somebody else with his own name - "Anakin! Get your brother away from here." the man, who had once been Darth Vader shouted, while he pushed his enemy away from himself and got on his feet.

    The youngest Solo-child tried to do, what he was told, putting the arm of unconcious Jacen over his shoulder the young boy tried to stand up, while he looked wide-eyed at the raging battle between two giants. His distraction almost caused his grip on his brother's arm to slip and Jacen to drop to the ground, but a large, strong hand with webbed fingers cought the injured and unconcious boy before he hit the dirt.

    "Let me help you." Chilgal said, her cal

    Sorry, I've updated the "Tale of Darth Vader's Son" and "The Colliding of Empires" first.

    I'm currently working on the update of this story, but I also want the Yavin-episode to be finished with this one. So with a duel on the ground, a larger battle and a space-battle, Luke Skywalker on the way and Han grieving over Chewbacca that takes a while.

    I know, I know, you're waiting for the next part.

    Unfortunatly you have to wait a little bit longer. :( I can't help it, but until now the single parts simply don't come together in a way that I like. I'm sorry to tell you that, but I'm not going to post crap just to progress with the story.[face_frustrated]

    In any case I want to thank you for your patience.
