STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.53

bralor_av“I’m telling you, I get a bad feeling every time I’m around him, Trey.” Having made sure they weren’t being pursued, they locked in their course and jumped into lightspeed. Now, the thief, the pilot, and the newbie sat around the common room sorting the loot and discussing their separate encounters.”There’s no emotion about him. He put a blaster bolt in that Imperial’s chest without blinking those red eyes. It’s… unsettling.”

“He was right though,” Trey shrugged as he examined a peculiarly faceted bloodstone, “If the Imp saw your face, it could have brought a whole heap of trouble down on the operation.”

“And when they realize that these are missing?” The redhead slid a stack of datasticks and flimsiplast in front of Trey.

The rogue flipped through the flimsi...

STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.51

arden_avNik was crawling through the bowels of the Princess… again. Even he had to admit that this was getting old, but he hoped the deflector coil that he had sticking out of his haversack would at least settle things with Jenks and let him get on with finding a new rock to hide under.

He wouldn’t be falling through the ceiling this time, at least… not by choice, of course. He preferred the ceiling for the most part… people tend to ignore thumps and scratching in the ventilation ducts as poor maintenance. Unfortunately, the sudden arrival of a maintenance crew in the space bay he’d been “shopping” in had forced him to take the first available escape route.

So, Nik was under the floor panels this time, which meant things were a lot trickier...

kyra_av“I have been instructed that we are to start in the Executive Suite wing of Station 3.” The Chiss said, falling into step beside Kyra. His head turned, examining her from behind his helmet. Again that slightly unsettled feeling twisted in his stomach, almost as if continued close exposure to her were making him ill. “The ship’s utility droid provided the Diva’s Mandalorian with this.” He opened his fingers, revealing to her the data stick Bralor had given him back in the suite.

Kyra’s hand went for the stick, then hesitated, almost as if touching the Chiss would increase the feeling of unease she felt being in such close quarters with him. She forced herself to take the small device that was supposed to act like a master key to each of the staterooms...

STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.48

arden_avKyra leaned into the blade, forcing it down through the thick steel of the vault door. It was tough going, since the lightfoil didn’t have the same intensity of a Jedi lightsaber. Still, things were moving along faster than if they were trying to slice the combination. A safe the likes of the one they were cracking was bound to have a fail-safe on the number of times the wrong sequence of numbers could be entered before fusing itself shut. Oddly enough, the manufacturers didn’t seem as concerned with forced entry attempts.

The auburn haired apprentice wiped the sweat from her brow with the back of her gloved hand. They’d all changed into more ‘work appropriate’ attire. “Wonder if there’s any way to tweak this thing?” She remarked absently.

“Don’t. Like I said, it’s a family heirloom...

diva_av“Alright, Glee’k.” Bralor stood in the corner of the Diva’s suite with Chiss. After the vague news from Trey there was perhaps a little bit of regrouping to be done. After all a team effort may have just turned into a solo mission. “We don’t worry about what Trey is playing at. Too late in the game for for change ups. Whether Kyra shows up to do the job or not, you do the job. And we meet back up as planned.”

“Understood.” Krynn nodded. “I will proceed as instructed in the plans.”

“Don’t try and carry for both of you if you end up solo. You take the most and easiest to carry, Cash. Jewels. Goods. Whatever.” It was like giving the old mission briefing back in the army, except this time they weren’t flying in on a short range transport under fire by droid army tanks...

STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.43

bralor_avTrey and his escorts walked into one of the many restaurants on the pleasure boat’s promenade. They slid into one of the booths and waited. “Shouldn’t they be here by now?”

“Patience,” Trey nodded as he looked through the drink list, “I would figure you’d like being off your feet.”

“Didn’t say I didn’t appreciate that,” she grinned, “just worried about my baby is all.”

“No reason to be,” Arden jumped as Bralor’s voice came from the booth behind her. The little pilot started to whip around to the other booth. “Keep it in yer seat, squirt,” Bralor reprimanded her without even seeing her. It was like the old soldier had a second sense for these things. In fact it was just knowing your setting. Lots of polished glass meant lots of reflective surfaces “Act like you didn’t hear me...

STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.37

diva_avThe staccato thumps of meat against the padded leather of the training bag echoed through the empty cargo hold of the ship. Krynn stood clad only in glistening sweat from the waist up as he danced on the durasteel plate floor in his black boots. A wobbling drip of sweat hung on his nose tip as he slammed a fist wrapped in cloth against the bag again as the diva watched from across the room reclined luxuriously across the tops of some crates doubling as a lounge.

Krynn snarled at the bag as he lost himself in the rhythm of his blows and the dull ache burning his body. He was driven to be ready for the upcoming mission. He pushed himself focusing the pain back into the bag. He ground his teeth making the ache fuel his anger, and using that to drive the engine of his body faster and harder.

STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.34

krynn_avThe metal floor was painfully cold beneath her feet but at least her footsteps didn’t echo through the halls like Bralor’s. Though she liked to think that she knew almost every inch of the Soul, Aidenne rarely ventured down onto the lower deck. She’d never had a reason before.

Dressed in a simple, almost utilitarian, black jumpsuit, a far cry from the dresses she’d soon wear as a Diva about to perform, she paused just outside the door to Krynn’s room. Her hand lifted, prepared to knock, then drifted back to her side. She could have told herself that such hesitation was natural. After all, people usually came to her. But she was seeking him out without even fully understanding why, only knowing that she was troubled and he was both a cause and a comfort.

A small smile tugged at the corner...

bralor_av“I think we can meet somewhere in the middle, Rai.” Bralor crossed his arms over his chest, looking down at the holovid. “I’m good for it. 780.” The old man groaned and appeared to slump back in a chair. The clone leaned on the console. “You owe me.”

The image of the older man scowled, and flickered with static as he shook his head. “Taking advantage of an old man, Bralor?”

“You’re still making money on this deal.”

“This is how you want to call in your marker?”

A grin split Bralor’s face. “I knew you’d come around.” He stood upright, stretching to his full height.”I’ll radio when we’re there.”

“How long?”

“Not too long,” he replied. “One stop and we’re on our way.”

The man nodded and the feed was cut...

STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.31

diva_avKrynn knocked on the Diva’s door loudly holding the clear laminate print outs from the ship’s encyclopedic recorder. He had looked up the terms: Force, Sith, and Jedi. He needed to talk to her immediately.

She’d been sleeping, enjoying a dreamless sleep while stretching luxuriously on her silken sheets. But no one would sleep through that knocking. Since modesty was rarely an issue with her, she slipped out of bed and walked naked to the door, pausing only to check her reflection to make sure the mark was fading like Ures said it would. Sliding the door open, her expression settled into a peculiar mix of acceptance and annoyance at the sight of Krynn on the other side. “Have we given up on sleeping now?”

Krynn pushed past her into her room without asking and began pacing back and forth cl...
