IC: Tatooine By all reports, the Yuuzhan Vong were occupying the planet of Tatooine before their fleets left the system. Which is why the convoy of New Republic freighters entering the atmosphere was not only a group of ships desgined to resist poisons and toxins, but the equipment onboard was scientific in nature and included a large assortment of decontamination devices. The convoy met up the Tenth Defense Fleet, under Commander Isfan of the HBD Pride's Fury. The fleet escorted the team to the planet's surface. Appreciating Yomin Carr's often unpredictable and lethal toys, the workers of the New Republic National Academy of Sciences who landed on Tatooine were dressed in full biosuits that not only protected them from the poison but also from the fast-rising temperatures. Powerful scanners not only searched for danger (any of which will be repulsed by the military weapons the scientists brought as well as two full squads of retrofitted X-wing II's soaring overhead). The scientists formed a large security perimeter, with soldiers too. The scientists disembarked at the Dune Sea and got straight to work. Analyzing the composition of air and soil, they worked, with the aid of major doses of caffeine, round the clock to find out how to counter the shaping materials and save the dying planet... OOC: Understand that these scientists are well-suited (no pun intended) for anything on this planet.
