    "Is there anything else?" Kieran inquired.

    The Ensign who had been up to this point delivering the recent reports from Moria base faltered. "I am not quite sure sir..."

    "What do you mean not sure?" Kieran asked, a bit annoyed. It was a straightforward question. There either was more news, or there wasnt.

    The Ensign frowned down at his padd, then continued "Well Commander Neikot reports that one of our opperatives on Tholatin has been contacted by someone with reports on our agents."

    Sitting up in his seat, Kieran suddenly was more attentive. Any news of the two officers who went missing without notice would surely be interesting. "Go ahead."

    "The operative reports that the... 'chick' who contacted him gave him a data cube and claimed it contained info on our attack on the Vindicator as well as the ship's current location." At this point the Ensign gave up all pretense of reading the report and spoke freely. "Sir, I wasnt aware we launched an attack on a Super Star Destroyer."

    Kieran didnt respond to the impetuous youth. The Vindicator....... The Emperor's flagship? The pieces to this puzzle were many... And he still doubted he had them all, though the picture began to get clearer.

    "Send word through our network for the agent to open and scan the data card for any sorts of retro viruses, and sub programs, then he is to deliver it to Vinyamar base, using a multi vector approach, of course."

    The Ensign nodded and scurried off, the expression on his face one of complete puzzlement, but still complying out of reflex.

    Kieran sat in his command chair for another hour, just staring at the stars and contemplating... The Vindicator....

    Utopia

    Gerul sat back and thought for a moment. This young child had once been what would amount to the Grand Vizier of the most notorious Imperial figures ever to walk the Galaxy. Jai Lavos had inherited the power and prestige that his father had...could Gerul Trust Jai?

    he thought back to the days he was on Byss...Jai never betrayed Gerul's trust, nor did he seem to harbor any wishes to. This proposal could mean a great deal in the grander scheme of things...but Gerul did not know how much Jai needed to know; like how the Military rulers of the Alliance had pronounced Gerul Cast as head of the faction...the nameless faceless head coordinating all the Rebel Cells. Apperently he did know that Gerul was heading up the reistance front close to the Tingal arm, but Cast did not think that Jai knew in depth of his organization.

    "Mr. Lavos, I truly wish to believe what you are saying, and I would desire this alliance...but I have severe reservations now. As you know our former President Jace Halycon was captured and his wife killed by Imperial Forces. My sources say that he did not resist arrest by Imperial factions...in fact he walked directly into their camp and surrendered. "

    Gerul Sat down, still towering over the young man.

    " My contacts on Coruscant noted that Jace Halycon entered Coruscantian airspace, and then left...this time in command of a small fleet. Sir, we have been sold out time and time again by those pretending to be our friends. I trusted Jace again, foolishly. I wish to trust you, and I have no reason not to...except for my experiences outside our relationship. I will agree with a trade alliance, and possibly a limited miliary alliance...but until I can trust you; I must make my people the priority, so my facilities will remain secret."

    Gerul sat and waited for the response.

    Silent Shipyards

    The new type of armor that was being developed was going along as planned. Already, the Dathomir was recieving it, though the expense and dificulty of applying it had only rendered 1/16 of the ship underneath it's development. A wire came in from a mobile research base where research on the Emperor's new technology of destroying ships in hyperspace. the wire had a huge file attachement on it, and had been dated several days ago...the lack of holonet really had caused problems.

    The following schematics are the best that we could decypher. This advanced design is beyond us...it's ingenious and a major advancement to current technology...however we believe that we have discovered a way to counter it...and it's very simple...

    The letter went on to read the salution that was proposed, and methods by which to counter what was discovered, as Tachyon waves.

    IC: Eva Tallarn

    Eva Tallarn arrived at her destination point, or what was supposed to be her Master's destination point. She did not speak but a few words when she arrived and desired only to retire to her new quarters where she could think quietly to herself away from others. Explaining only briefly her wishes, she was shown the way to her quarters.
    Eva sat herself slowly down into a cold chair and closed her eyes. The room was completely silent. She exhaled slowly and opened her eyes to stare into the darkness.

    This is where Yori would be if he was alive right now. But I am here. Not him. I do not want to be here. I want him to be here, alive and happy-- content with this assignment.
    I should have known not to hold onto hope. His disappearance-- I never thought that he could be--
    Eva quickly wiped a tear from her cheek but it was soon followed by a another.
    I should have prepared myself for this. I knew that something bad was going to happen or had already happened when I received word from Uncle. Nothing good comes from that man. He shatters everything--lives, as well as hopes. I would have just as soon heard of my master's passing from a stranger than to hear it from Tarquin Seti.
    And I would not have come here if it were not for Yori. I will do this for him. I will finish what he began.

    IC: Yori Devontaine/ Merrick Kaliden

    "Bring in the empath." Yori directed. He turned to Merrick standing to his side, "Let us see if this one is any better than the last."
    "I assure you, this one will do better." Merrick replied confidently.
    A young Evaytian female entered the room and stopped for further instructions.
    Yori turned to one of the assistants, "Bring in another guard." The assistant nodded and soon came back followed by one of the security guards.
    "Let's try this again, shall we?" Yori sighed. Merrick took the Evaytian aside and gave her instructions. Returning to Yori's side, Merrick studied the empath's every move.

    The young girl walked slowly to the security guard who had just recently walked in. She studied her opponent a moment. The young man looked at her a moment and then glanced across the room to Dr Devontaine curiously.
    "Look at me." The Evaytian spoke softly. Her words seemed to echo in his mind and soon his eyes were locked on her's. He could hear his heart beating in his ears, quietly at first, but then gradually getting louder. He did not move as she came closer to him. He just stared numbly into her ice blue eyes.
    The Evaytian stopped a few feet away from him and spoke with a hint of melancholy in her voice, "You feel sad."
    An overwhelming feeling of grief seemed to spill into the young man's body. Her words were like a cold hand ripping down his throat and tearing out his heart. He began to weep, falling down to his knees and clasping his ears with his hands as he sobbed. The words echoed over and over in his mind and the feeling grew stronger. He curled up on the floor and wept until his tears turned to blood.
    "That will do," Merrick instructed. The telepath backed away slowly.
    "Impressive," Yori muttered.
    "A much stronger Empath as you can see."
    "Interesting, but can she do this to one who is expecting it? Can she do this to the security officer over there?" Yori pointed to the man standing in the corner of the room.
    "Let us try it," Merrick replied. He walked over to the empath and spoke quietly to her.
    By then the young guard was being carried away by med droids. The security officer was then summoned to stand at the center of the room. He tightened his stomach and stood boldly before the young female.
    For a long time, the room was completely silent. The girl stared at the man, and he stared back at her defiantly. A moment later, she began walking closer to him and around him. He remained still as she came close to his ear and whispered one word. "Fear."
    The man didn't notice anything at first until his

    Yori was now an even happier man. Too bad Eva would not be able to share in his joy. "And in his work." If Tarquin did not have need for the work she was attending to, he would have gladly sent the pair together. "So very sad. . . "

    "Grand Moff, we have word from the Rebels."

    "Commander Jensonsen, whatever do you mean?"

    The Commander, looking sharp in his new uniform, gave Tarquin a datapad containing two messages.

    "One was through normal communications channels . . . "

    Tarquin nodded, "A bad idea. Interception."

    "Yes, sir. The other obtained through a probe on the outskirts of the system."

    Seti reviewed the data. "Hmmm. Well, obviously I will not speak with these characters in person. The courier ships are prepared, are they not?"

    "Yes, m'lord. The first brigade flew out yesterday."

    Have two preped for travel to the other side of the galaxy. I will have messages prepared once they are readied."

    "Of course. And sir, news from Yag'Dhul is awaiting you in your quarters."

    Tarquin turned, saying nothing.

    "I thought that would please you," Jensonsen said.



    IC: Pax Dellos; Arriving in the Eriadu System

    The Lambda shuttle Derelicted left hyperspace and found itself at Eriadu. Pax Dellos was her pilot and she was on a mission. Several, actually. The shuttle moved into the civilian traffic lane, preparing to be scanned. Of course the authorities would find nothing, mostly because there was nothing on the ship. Only some foodstuffs and clothing. For the sick and the homeless of Eriadu.

    Kieran came charging onto the bridge of the Pride and proceeded directly to the comm officer. "Has our agent left yet with the datacube?"

    The officer looked up, "Yes sir, he has."

    "Contact him and tell him NOT to approach Vinyamar base. First he is to scan the data cube with a fine toothed comb and ensure that it is only that, a data cube, and to double check it's contents. Run a comparative analysis between it's components and those of another data cube of the same model, noting ANY differances, no matter how slight."

    The officer eyed him for a second, looking at him as if he were insane, "Ummm.... Yes sir.. Right away."

    Kieran walked off the bridge and slowly made his way back to bed, slightly relieved.

    Last Night
    The JSD II moved away from the orbit of Naboo and moved to make a jump to Dagobah.

    But the destination was well away from the system itself.

    Right before going to hyperspace Kuan recieved a message from the Sectoral Govenor.

    He was told to check out the Kathol Sector to maybe find a place to find a to build a shipyards. Also he was to find a place some ways away from the Sector to start building a shipyards right away.

    From the ISD III shot a squadron of fighters, 4 shuttles(3 packed with droids), and 7 freighters carrying supplies for the shipyards jumped to hyperspace towards a secret destination only known to Kuan.

    With that complete and the Kuan going to meet Corben Dys the JSD II jumped to hyperspace towards Dagobah.

    Today
    The JSD II came out of hyperspace at the destination for meeting and waited for Corben Dys to show up.

    Meanwhile the 4 shuttles, 7 freighters and squadron of fighters come out at there destination and found it to be perfect to build the shipyard.

    The droids set out to build the frame for the yards immediately and going some supplies from the freighter Refugee[i/]

    Hoth


    Ships form the Union Mining Guild exited hyperspace in the Hoth system, and proceeded towards the asteroid belt. Their first priority was the construction of a command station near the asteroid belt from which to direct their operations. They had brought modular pieces of a station with them, and all they had to do was join them together. Nothing more than a control station, alongside large storage bins for the raw ore and refineries, the station would be the heart of the Hoth mining operation.

    As work on the station begun, several small scout ships ploughed through the asteroid field, marking suitable asteroids for mining with sensor tags.

    With terms agreed between the governments of Bespin and Sullust, Tibanna Gas production was increased, and many of the casinos and hotels on Cloud City reopened for business.

    Union representatives met with the native Ugnaughts and relayed the terms that the Sullustan government hoped to agree on. After much wrangling, Anoat was admitted into the Union, and the Ugnaughts gave the Union extensive mining rights. Union negotiators instantly transmitted the information back to Sullust, with a request for additional resources to aid the Ugnaughts in mining their system's asteroids.

Next the transport landed 2 hangars, and some other large buildings to put simulators in and a briefing room. The tansport flew around searching out small clearings to put defensive lasers and missiles in. The defences structures outlined the buildings that were already put down. Lastly the transport landed a watch tower and a few two roomed buildings.
    The transport landed in one fo the hangars and the E-Wings came back reporting that there were small food and water supplies, nothing long term though. The 50 men that were on the transport stepped off and went to the garrison buildings to put their things away and sleep. Currently 24 E-Wings were on station on Ison, and more were expected to come.

    The Lambda proceeded to land at an outerlier spaceport. The ship would look out of place there, but it was aged from years of use. Pax deactivated the shuttle and left with his cargo. Four large and long boxes containing clothing and foodstuffs. It would be dropped off at the local refuge.

    Pax was clad in a dark cloak and unvealing hood. He made his way through the streets of Republica. They were dirty in this area, always had and always will. Pax had many contacts on Eriadu, and he visited all of them today. They were all astonished by his arrival. Most had thought him dead. Again. Pax had a talent for evading death. By day's end the first safehouse had been established and Pax also learned of where he could find a young man looking for some purpose.

    Dellos walked into a seedy pub and found what he was looking for. He sat down next to the young man and ordered a drink. "It gets tough living out here, isn't it?" he asked Farlander.

    Over the course of several days they watched him. The impetuous human boldy asking around Nar Shaadaa for the Morian Raiders, as if they would come merely at his beck and call.

    They waited. They were in no hurry. If the youth truely had buisness worth their while, they could wait. And they did. Observing him as he went on his rounds of inquiry, ensuring none followed him, or watched over him. Passive scans were preformed by passerbys, and more detailed scans from a distance. In this sector of space, recently contested by Empire, Vong, and Hutt, no one could be too careful.

    Finally on the third day, after ensuring the human was truely human, and not being watched, or well armed, an accidental bump pushed the youth into a dark allyway where and summerily sedated and brought to another section of Nar Shaadaa. The locals did not even blink an eye.

    An hour later the youth was awoken in a small, darkly lit chamber, with only one light shining down from above. A gruff male voice spoke from the shadows. "And what buisness do you have with the Morian Raiders?"

    Pax left the bar and prepared to leave the capital.
