Re: Open Orbit

*A comm message comes to Commander Draal's comm link, with the new information. Commander Draal turns to the Ensign*
"Ensign! we may have a situation. I want scan's of those ships and armed personelle on standby to board. We may have pirates to root out" Commander Draal
*Scan's of the ships begun being performed. The Ensign made the call and 20 Chiss Warrior's armed with Heavy Repeating Charric's were loaded into 2 transports. Commander Draal then picked up the comm link to the 'political convoy', meanwhile the gun's remained locked onto the ships*
:: Duchess Haleema D'rey, My superior's have ordered me to send medical aid to your ship's. I am sending out 2 Transport's, 1 per freighter to lend medical aid. We cannot allow you to land however. I am sorry for my earlier remarks, it would seem you have friends in high places here :: Commander Draal
*The 2 troops transports took off out of the hangar and split off towards the two freighter's. The transport's would dock with the freighter's. The warrior's had been equipped with video and audio streaming gear. Provided the transport's landed, the rear hatche's would open and the Chiss warrior's would pour out, with gun's leveled at what ever met them*

Re: Open Orbit

*The two transports suddenly separated, one seemingly losing power and tumbling through space as it drifted. Visually the vessel looked like it was venting something, possibly the pressurized atmosphere within the hull. The other transport slowed and responded to the Chiss Commander.*

:: Oh, stang. Sorrow just lost power. They were struggling to contain a reactor leak, recommend that you keep your distance until they get it back under control. We will hold position here and await your medical staff. ::

Set up defensive positions on the airlock. Frags upon entry. We've got to hold off the blue skinned freaks until Sorrow can get in atmosphere.

*The group of twenty-three began arranging boxes in front of the door to the airlock, arming a variety of weapons in a wide range of disrepair. One even set up an outdated E-Web behind a low container with a fire arc between two taller ones.*

Re: Open Orbit

*Commander Draal watched the little act*
"Gunner's, prepare to fire. Land the first transport, if anything should meet our troops that isn't friendly, withdraw the troops and blow these things to hell" Commander Draal
*The 2nd transport tailed the 'damaged' freighter. Meanwhile the 1st transport connected with the first freighter. The soldier's approached the airlock. The soldier's held their weapon's raised and ready as the airlock opened to reveal the boxes.

The CEDF Defence Station meanwhile warmed up it's gun's, keeping their target's on the suspected enemy vessel's. Commander Draal sat in his command chair, rolling something between his finger's*

Re: Open Orbit

*All at once, two fragmentation grenades and one EMP flew into the Chiss landing craft. They went off shortly after, proof that the explosives had been primed before they were thrown. Then multiple weapons opened fire down the narrow hallway. The Pirates were hoping to shut down the electronics to hinder their comunications and put as much energy into the air to discourage the troops from moving from whatever cover they could find.*

*As for the transport drifting through space, it suddenly burned it's thrusters straight towards the atmosphere. Moments later, the leak from the main cabin was sealed, obviously too quickly to be a weld or containment protocol. Shields were raised and shifted to the rear, leaving the minimal cover to breach the atmosphere for the front.*

Re: Open Orbit

*As the grenades flew through the air, the Chiss troops moved back into the transport, doing their best to avoid the oncoming fire. The Transport then detached itself from the pirate freighter and thrustered itself clear of the ship and out of the range of fire.

meanwhile back on the defense station*

"Pirates! fire all guns! Station 2 is to intercept the Freighter headed for atmosphere!" Commander Draal
*The 1st CEDF Orbital Defense Station opened fire on the 1st frieghter with:
- 5 Long Range Masers
- 1 Connor Net (two kilometer net)
- 5 Dual Heavy Megamaser Turrets
- 10 Heavy Megamaser Turrets
- 5 Dual Heavy Ion Cannons
In an attempt to either destroy of disable the 1st frieghter.
The 2nd CEDF Orbital Defense Station moved into position, somewhat between the planet's surface and the 2nd Freighter, The station targetted the 2nd frieghter and opened fire at the front of the freighter with:
- 10 Long Range Masers
- 10 Dual Heavy Megamaser Turrets
- 15 Heavy Megamasers
Whilst using 10 of it's tractor beams to pull the Freighter off it's course and into the line of fire. Commander Braal smiled as the barrage was let off*

Re: Open Orbit

*The shuttle blew to pieces, its sheilds not lasting a second under the massive amount of overkill firepower.

The previously venting shuttle shot forward even faster, with a new bust of unexpected speed now skimming the edge of the atmosphere trying to slip down the gravity well.

The two large Freighters still sat well out of range turned slowly to try and find a hyperspace exit vector the way they came.*

Re: Open Orbit

*Commander Draal smiled as the first shuttle exploded. He then broadcasted a message on all comm lines*
:: Let it be known, that Piracy within Chiss Space will not be tolerated. Let these shuttles be an example :: Commander Draal
*As the 2nd shuttle still made for the atmosphere the CEDF Orbital Platform readjusted it's aim and fired off shot's from it's Long Range Megamasers at the shuttle*

Re: Open Orbit

*The shuttle began jinking avoiding the majority of the fire from the blue energy filling the void. The pilot struggled in his evasion as the shields were equalized. Despite their efforts, the port side of the vessel suddenly rocked with a near miss, rolling flame briefly before the fire ran out of oxygen to breathe. It was nearing the atmosphere, however, and preparations were being made for what was going to happen when it did.*

*The two exiting Heavy Freighters haltered their slow exit from the sytem and unexplicably started firing at a small piece of space with nothing in it. It was almost as if they had been tipped off that something was there, something black stopping the twinkling of the stars beyond.*

Re: Open Orbit

A ship's engines suddenly spout to life on the backside of the black shadow in space.
The black as night ship leaps forward and pulls port, easily dodging the shots.
It comes about at increasing speed at the two heavy Arkanian Pirate freighters.
Two Quad laser turrets, one on each wing, angle forward and auto-lock on the first of the two heavy freighters and spew laser.
Suddenly, concussion missiles fly out from forward missile tubes on the black craft as well.
The missiles are locked on to the second heavy pirate freighter.

Re: Open Orbit

A lucky hit!
*One of the Pirates at a gunner station sounded*.

You mean good intel! Besides you didn't even hit it.
*The other Pirate sitting in the opposite station chided his colleague.

Before being hit by the black craft's missiles another layer of strong shields raised incasing each of the Freighters. They couldn't move very fast at all but they were highly shielded. Hull flaps and extra telescopic jutts exposed more lasers and cannons as they tracked the black ship trying to gain a lock with their lacking manuverability.*

HWK-290, Isha - Cockpit

*Confirming that the hyperdrive and nav-computer have been set for our journey, I wait to achieve the required distance to make the jump and, once we have left the gravity well, check my instruments a final time, and then engage the Isha's hyperdrive.

A brief whine builds in pitch and the stars outside the ship's forward viewport stretch out and blur as the Isha abruptly winks out of view, having entered hyperspace and begun the journey for the Core Worlds.*

Regnum's helmeted head watches as the turrets come out as he makes a turn for another pass.

"Spast."

He comes about, flicks some switches changing all power to the front shields, and opens fire again on on of the freighters.

*The Loss of Innocentce exited the atmosphere flying a typical space lane heading clear of Ilum's gravity well. Bestuur didn't bother checking his instruments fully expecting his wing to be cloaked and close to him. Instead, he just sent a short message through the coded channels stating their next jump coordinates into the Hapan Cluster. When the vessel cleared the well, it lept into hyperspace.*

*A YZ-775 drops out of hyperspace with an escort of a half squadron of A-10s. The ships transmit simular codes to the other graffittied vessel, indentifying as the To Hell with the Consequences and Pole Arm squadron. They proceed planet-side.*

*The two heavily armoured Freighters looked like they could stand up to the agile, dark Fighter but they couldn't land a single hit on it. After an emergency beacon transmitted from the surface signalling that the insurgent Pirates had failed their mission the Freighters lumbered to an exit vector under fire and dissapeared to hyperspace with a couple of flashes.*

Re: Open Orbit

Regnum's computer logged the ships specs and data.

After a pause, he types in coordinates and the navacomputer soon calls back.

The black ship leaps into hyperspace.

Re: Open Orbit

*A small Lamba class shuttle exited hyperspace. It had the markings of the Jedi Order upon it. The ship had traveled from Taris for a supposed simple mission. It went into low orbit and held its course for a moment. One board were two passengers. A Padawan,Dahk, and a Jedi knight, Bet. The Selonnian turned to her Padawan and gestured to the planet below. *

Well, hon. Here we are! One of the darnest of cold planets around these here parts!.. But it has the prettiest crystals to use anytime. Prepare for landing!

*Putting in a set of coordinates, Bet steered the ship down to the atmosphere and headed to a landing platform near the crystal caves. *

Re: Open Orbit

*Gravity rippled inside the system as a small hole was opened up from darkspace. Emerging into the system was a slender and sleek organic vessel seemingly crafted from black gloss. It was small as far as transports were concerned, no more than twenty meters in length. A lone figure glared out the canopy, focusing glowing crimson orbs on the planet directly ahead.* *He needn't really bother to look with his own eyes, for the cognition hood clinging to his face could have just as easily gifted him with a vision of what the ship's own eyes witnessed.* *He bit his lower lip, drawing a bead of black blood and savoring what little pain the sensation offered.*

*For two weeks now he had been traveling the darkened corridors of the void, bouncing from one system to the next as he gathered data to form a new star chart for his people. For all that they knew of the known galaxy, the Unknown Regions were still very much a mystery to them, despite that they themselves called the region home.*

*Arthas scowled bitterly as he surveyed the world sprawled out ahead. Sensor-beasts indicated that its surface was largely ice, cruel and cold in nature. The atmosphere was largely oxygen based, making it survivable without the aid of a lungworm. He stroked the creature, discerning more data and inspecting it meticulously.* *It wasn't in his records, nor the system either. That likely meant that it had been overlooked during the war, making it exactly the sort of thing he was looking for. The Praetorite didn't want a partial list of updated data; they wanted new data about new worlds and new systems. The more the better, especially if they were found in the region of space they were currently inhabiting.* *His mqaaq'it fell on the pulsing console in front of him, acknowledging the creature's efforts in capturing data. As it went about its business, the Intendant painfully removed his cognition hood and sought around the small cabin for his bladder-flask.*

*Upon finding it, Arthas stroked the creatures reflex, unsealing it and allowing the aroma of sparkbee honey to fill the small cockpit. Placing the flask to his lips, he took a long swig, enjoying the thick liquid as it oozed down his throat.* *He was aware of the fact that it dulled his senses, but he didn't care. It was one of the few luxuries he had left in this life, and it did much to bury the memories he had of the ones he had lost. There were so few of them now, so very few.* *Resealing the flask, the Intendant eased himself back into his seat and pulled the cognition hood back over his head. Observantly he focused his attentions on the ball of ice directly ahead.*

*Twin dovin basals slowly propelled the needle-shaped craft towards the planet. The distortion of gravity they created was barely noticeable given the slow speed and small shape of the ship, little more than what one might expect from a meteorite or some other piece of random debris.*

*His superiors would want more than just a star chart, they'd want first hand accounts of the planet itself. Being a scout, Arthas figured he'd save them the effort of sending a survey team and investigate the snowball himself. He was already here anyways.*

Re: Open Orbit

*The silent stars of the unknown regions, note the passage of a courier ship. A fast ship, that occasionally skirted dangerous paths while seeking a to find the fastest rout to Ilum. Why did rush so? The stars might have wondered, but if they did the ship did not notice, nor would it have offered any answers had it noticed.

The ship exits hyperspace at the edge of the Ilum system, and does a quick scan of it's immediate surroundings, looking for hostiles. Finding none, the Pilot orders a more thorough scan of the entire system. Noting nothing unusual betwixt himself and Asar, the pilot plots a quick jump to bring him just outside of orbit above Ilum's nearest moon.*


*Having arrived in High Orbit over one of Ilum's two moons, I ignite my sub-lights and push the Biron, my Ship and only companion, on to a heading that will bring it down on Ilum's surface near the legendary crystal caves. Checking my chrono, I notice that I've made the trip in 67.39% of the time I had originally calculated it would take. I suppose, being used to flying in the margins, as Uncle Biron had called it, gave me an edge in finding new routes threw the stars. Well.... that and the Biron's extensive star charts and top of the line nav. computer. Pulling into low orbit I check my position and surroundings one last time, before steering into the atmosphere.*
