Re: Open Orbit

*A starfighter exits hyperspace and sits in the orbit of the planet. A young girl sits in the pilot seat and looks around the orbit to see if there were any other ships nearby. She looks over at the passenger, her friend Gavin, and gave him a smile.*

"We're here. And I did a pretty good driving the ship myself."

*Victoria starts to laugh and reaches for the comm to contact a nearby orbit control ship.*

:: Hello, My name is Victoria Shadowe and I wanted to know if it was okay to land here? We do not come here to fight or cause problems. Just to visit. ::

*Vicky let out a sigh after finishing her message. She looks over at Gavin and raises an eyebrow.*

"So.... what are we going to do here?"

Re: Open Orbit

*Gavin opened his eyes as Victoria mentioned they were here and began relaying the message to the orbit ship. Ice blue eyes made themselves know as they peered out to the planet before them. Borleias, a planet that was rare to his company, but still had many memories. He remembered a girl he took in and raised in her teenage years until she joined with the Dark Jedi and ended up here for a time. He visited once, just once. But it had been so long since he had seen her. She surely had to be in her twentis now and a strong warrior. But that was the past.

Then there was the time he ran into Hawk, well flew into the wall of the cave. He had been beaten badly and was on the verge of death. A battle he couldn't come close to winning. She tended to him there, helped him heal alongside his and her dragons. Such pain in those meetings. Never could he ever just sit and chat with her. That, too, was but in the past.

Now a new chapter was starting.

What could he say of the planet. Parts reminded him of his homeworld. The woods the places of peace. Perhaps that's why he was so willing to cme to this place without opting for a different location. And here he was once again. This time new memories along with longer times he would spend and with new company. He looked over slightly towards Victoria as she finished her message and returned her attention to him. He waited a moment after she had finished speaking before responding. HIs face remained straight, his voice calm and cool.*


Yes, you did well. As for what we're going to do here..*He looked out at the planet once again, eyes focused hard on the planet and mind on what was ahead.*..you wanted a purpose, correct? You want to become stronger, to learn what was taught to you're father? That is what we'll do here. We'll set a new stage for your training, a place outside the memories of those past. A new beginnng, so to speak, for you and I.

*His eyes closed only for a moment before opening them again, gaze now focused upon her. His icy eyes looked at her attentively as he took her in. She looked like her father, that was for sure. He also saw her mother though he knew little of her. He couldn't explain the chances of them running into each other. But he knew there were no coincidences. That he knew from experience. The last time that happened was when he encountered Bane and Orian on Zonama Sekot. That was but a few months ago, six at most. He let his mind roll back a bit, replaying the their encounter again.*

*He didn't know why but he had felt drawn back to Uvena Prime. But he stood there looking over the location of where the Fortress had stood. Perhaps it was just like his tims at Zonama, taking time to reflect on the memories and lessons learned, yes that must have been it. But the sound broke hims from his trance, the sound of a landing starship. He turned to the landing ship and a girl emerged and approached for a bit until she noticed them.

They both watched each other with caution, not knowing the others intentions. But Gavin spoke first, asking her her name and purpose. Upon hearing her name did he lowr his guard slightly. He pushed to know if her relations were correct in his mind, and thankfully, they were. They talked and learned a little about the past and the times here. It was then Gavin agreed to help her ad walk with her so she was no longer alone. He decided to guide one more person before finally retiring away from the galaxy. It was she who suggested Borleias, and now things were new*

Re: Open Orbit

*A small smile formed on Vicky's face. She liked having a new beginning in her life. After being alive for twenty years without her parents for majority of it, she was doing a good job. She was slightly excited for the training, but she remembered back when she was training with her father. She enjoyed it very much but every time she thought about it, she missed him. While in thought, she let out a sigh and closed her eyes to relax. To try to forget about her father completely. Vicky brought up a different topic to get her mind off of stuff.*

"I am looking forward to this training. To become stronger than before. And I'm glad I found someone that I knew as well. Even if I don't know much about you."

Re: Open Orbit

*She smiled. That meant she was looking forward to it. That was good. His training was not easy and if she looked forward to it, it would be a slightly better ease for her. But he admired her enjoyment of the idea. It was a good sign, a sign she had the heart and will needed to become stronger.*

We may not know each other very well now, but in time, we will. It is then you'll find a power unlike that you have known before.

*The power he spoke of would appear out of his own reach considering the way he was. But that was the greatest secret of all. The secret that lay deep in his very being.*

*Vicky sighed as they got no response back on this planet. She snapped her fingers and looked over to Gavin.*

"Hey, I know another place where we can go. This doesn't feel like the right place to go. We'll come back here eventually."

*She started up the engines and took off into hyperspace.*

*Reaching orbit, Incom Tug 3A leveled out momentarily while a last safety check was conducted and all systems were prepared for the jump to lightspeed. Then, with the coordinates for home properly entered, and all systems green. the pilot eased the twin levers forward, and in a blink the massive supercarrier was gone, swallowed into the mottled grey of hyperspace once more.*

Re: Open Orbit

An Ardent=class fast frigate dropped out of hyperspace close to the planet, and on the bridge, the commander grunted slightly in surprise. Their positioning was picture perfect, allowing the ship to shed it's hyperspace speed, and drop smoothly into a high orbit. Then entire planet of Borleias spread out below the small ships viewports. Responding to a query from one of the bridge crew, the commander turned his head.

"What? No, don't open a comm channel. Go comms dead, minimum power. Full ghost mode. We can't very well know how vigilant they are if we tell them we've arrive, now can we?"

The commander turned back to watch the planet spin slowly, a faint chuckle escaping his lips as he mulled over his own words

Re: Open Orbit

All commands receive an urgent report on the highest communication level possible. Each ship Captain and XO receives the message and each see's it in a different manner.

Admiral Salvatori and Commodore Jenkins immediately begin issuing orders to the taskforce on immediate withdrawal of all forces on Borelias save the units that will remain as part of the Republics contract. Every piece of equipment has to be packed up and shipped across the galaxy to the homeworld of nearly ninety percent of the taskforce. Admiral Salvatori outs in several calls for bulk haulers to be contracted temporarily.

Commodore Weaver begins issuing orders to the pilots of her ship, as well as those from the rest of the fleet. Pilots are to begin escort missions for supply ships across the taskforce and then to get rest aboard the capital ships during the hyperspace jump. She sends copies of her orders to the Admiral, of which he approves.

The four smaller patrol ships begin making room for as much cargo as possible in their cargo bays as they re converge in orbit near the 'White Raven".

All crews are so engrossed with the new order it's a miracle that any sensor officer actually spotted the incoming ship which appears nearly on the taskforce in high orbit. The "Brionelle" moves slightly to present a broadside, bringing up all shields, although she cannot quite get a fix on the enemy ship, she can clearly see her. On the small bridge Captain Bayles is giving orders to his crew.

"Dammit they appeared right on top of us. They must be running on lowest power settings attempting to sneak by. Open up a communication channel to them and the "Raven". Inform Admiral Salvatori of then newcomer and possible hostile."

::This is Captain Bayles aboard the New Republic ship "Brionelle". Your dangerously close to a New Republic Task Force and running silent. Identify yourself or be targeted.::

Luck was all that spotted this potential threat, and Chris would have to have a word with the Admiral about proper sensors sometime later. he also wants to talk to the lad manning the sensors and congratulate him.

Re: Open Orbit

"Bring us about, shields to minamum, weapons offline, and ready a reply."

The crew of the ship leapt into action with well practiced ease. Even here, in a situation presenting only minamal danger, every being on the bridge acted as if their lives depended on the swift and efficient response to orders. The Ardent swung around to follow a course that would prevent it from colliding with any of the other ships, and it's shields came up to minimal combat strength, while it's weapons remained offline. The comm buzzed quietly for a few seconds before Raen spoke

::This is Lord Hunter Raen Sorak, commander of the Ardent-class fast frigate, Guardian Nova. I have business with the Chandril Ravens::

Re: Open Orbit

"Captain their bringing shields online, but not weapons." One of the officers on the bridge responds. Chris listens to the reply over his speakers in his command chair, and pauses. It could be a trap, so he sends the communication over to the "Raven". A few minutes go by before a fax comes thru from Admiral Salvatori himself.

::SEND THEM TO THE RAVEN: SHUTTLE ONLY: DEPLOYING 'MISTWEAVER' NEARBY: KEEP CAUTION::

Chris agrees with the plan, and the firepower the Ravens have in system is enough to deal with a decent sized task force. He only wishes they had been able to purchase stations to place in orbit, alongside ground-to-space weapon systems.

::Roger that "Guardian Nova.". A single shuttle will approach the MC90 Cruiser "White Raven" and land in the main hangar bay, where you'll be brought to speak with Admiral Salvatori, overall commander of the Ravens. Side-arms will be permitted, but we ask nothing heavier. You will hold course alongside the "Brionelle" in orbit. ANd we respect you bring your ship to full running power: we have several large cargo vessels coming and leaving every hour and we would hate to have a mishap, we barely spotted you ourselves: the damage could have been catastrophic.::

Cautiously the "Mistweaver" breaks its formation and slowly drifts towards the two ships, casual as if it was in a patrol around the planet.

Re: Open Orbit

Meanwhile Commodore Jenkins is busy in negotiations with several cargo companies and fellow Private Security Forces. She's managed to contract several Action series Transports, a lonely Super XI Transport, and a few escorts to come to Borelias ASAP. This immense cargo capacity would be able to take all of the supplies the Ravens had built up to Chandrila, while their own task force would carry the military gear.

Re: Open Orbit

The fleet continues it's dance in orbit, cramming every available space with cargo from the ground: weapons, medical supplies, machined parts it all goes together in storage spaces, or cleaned out lockers and barracks. Meanwhile the "Brionelle" and the "Mistweaver" maintain their positions waiting for the "Guardian Nova" to react.

A second situation develops however when the hired transports arrive. A massive Super Transport XI container ship is the first to arrive, protected by four antiquated T-65AC4 X-Wings. The ship is directed into orbit , and the fighters berthed and checked out via the contract signed with it's captain. Raven Techs will give overhauls to the starfighters in addition to the credits for use of their massive container vessel, which can probably house nearly all of the Chandril Ravens if properly configured. A dozen smaller transports are shuttled down to the surface under protection from Red Squadron's X-83's to begin ferrying cargo up.

Re: Open Orbit

Admiral Salvatori has been waiting for the representative of the Zaltin Corporation for a while now. His plans to hire privateers or smugglers or even legitimate cargo companies had backfired, and several hundred thousand credits were down the drain. A legit representative straight from the company would be able to accomplish much more than a normal smuggler would. He relays his orders to the communications officer who sends them back on an open channel.

::We read you "Southern Thunder": the current representative of the government of Borelias is unavailable at the moment, however Admiral Salvatori of the Chandril Ravens is willing to meet with you on his behalf, and on behalf of the government. You may dock your fighters and transport in the Main Hangar bay of the MC90 Star Cruiser "White Raven", where you will meet with Admiral Salvatori and discuss the matter.::

Re: Open Orbit

The second group of hired transports arrive, several Action Freighters led by a Action-Keynne XII transport arrive in system. A well off cargo company they charge much more for they have their own protection built into their clauses. While Admiral Salvatori would love to hire them on permanently to his force, their rates are quite steep. This one contract is more than the other groups combined. Cargo runs begin immediately, as they clear up some of the space on the surface.

Re: Open Orbit

*Barriers between realms warped as a series of Rendili tugs emerged from hyperspace, entering the system and immediately beginning to decelerate. The ships dropped into real space further back along the hyperlane so as to give themselves enough space to slow. Ordinarily only a few kilometers were required, but given what they were hauling, that length extended to several hundred.*

*Magnetically sealed and supported by a series of reinforced cables were two Bavos-II Military Space Platforms, both ordered from Rendili StarDrive and destined for Borleias. The large stations had been carried through hyperspace much to the strain of the tugs supporting them, though the trip from the Core Worlds to the Colonies was not overlong. Hails were broadcast to the planet upon approach, alerting Admiral Salvatori of the Chandril Ravens that his orders had arrived.*

*Captain Furry Fuzzelton, a long time employee of Rendili StarDrive, oversaw the delivery personally. His tugs unhooked the platforms as they neared orbit, slave driving the stations manoeuvring thrusters so as to keep them outside the gravity well and evenly space.* *Borleias' government would be able to move the stations where they pleased with the manoeuvring thrusters, though if they planned on spacing them on opposite hemispheres of the planet, they might want to hire tractor tugs instead. Either way it was a minor task.*

*Control codes were transferred to the Ravens via a secured link, while Furry had his techs wipe the stations of the slave programming and other various software that the company used for transfers only. Payment for the stations was already confirmed, so without further adieu, the tugs drifted away from the planet and set a course back for the nearest hyperlane. Once clear of any obstacles, a course was programmed into their navigational computers and they made the jump to lightspeed.*
