Reunion on Felucia
Deep in the jungles of Felucia, near an abandoned farming village, Ghost and Gand were training in a cave with Jedi Master Suljo Warde. Nearer the village, Galish (feeling in need of a drink) was looking for plants to ferment into alcohol – she found some bright pink mushrooms but remembered that colour = danger.
They heard the roar of ship engines, they spotted a ship circling the village with Rebel Alliance markings – a rare Alliance U-Wing. It set down and Travis stepped out. Galish approached first, in the hope of getting to the coolant aboard the ship (Travis stopped her). Then the others arrived with Warde.
Travis expressed his scepticism to Warde’s powers, saying the group were off getting their fortunes told whilst the others fought the war. He was here on behalf of General Rieekan in order to bring them in on an urgent matter.
They gathered their things and said farewell to Warde, who told Ghost and Gand that their powers were growing, that they should look to the light. He then said to Gand:
“When the time comes, trust him”.
Gand asked for clarification, Warde told him that if he had learned anything lately, it was that it is too dangerous to know too much about one’s own future.
They followed the course the Alliance had provided to Mimban, specifically Mimban 3. The course was designed to keep them clear of potential Imperial presence around Mimban 4 and Mimban 5.
At the Mimban base General Rieekan introduced them to Captain Salvador Volin from Alliance Intelligence. Volin briefed them on the latest intelligence as to the whereabouts of the rest of Predator Squadron, and he noted that an intercepted Imperial communique listed a ‘Cassie Kevlan’ as an Imperial agent who aided in taking down a Rebel squad. With this coming on the heels of Mesa leaking data to Black Sun (which in turn ended up in the hands of the Empire), there were concerns about Predator Squadron, their reliability and their loyalty. Volin backed these concerns up with some other choice exerpts from their history below:
Predator Squadron began preparing for their mission to Ice 9 to reunite with the others. Galish decided to climb atop the U-Wing and drink it’s coolant. Miraculously she did not succumb to poisoning, but she also did not fix the valve that she used – thus an entire tank’s worth of coolant was wasted and the Mimban Quartermaster was not very happy.
- On their way to Ice 9 they stopped at the Dag-O-Bar. Galish attempted to get served at the bar, jumped over the bar, then got into a fight with the droid bartender. Galish ended up destroying all of the alcohol at the bar and doing around 30,000 credits worth of damage to the facility. She now owes the insurers of the bar (Dei the Great’s Hutt clan) Obligation.
- At Ice 9 they encountered the Empire of the Hand, dealt with them amicably and reunited with the other squad.
Trouble on Xorrn
- They decided that it might be prudent to drop Galish in Hutt space before returning to the Rebel base. Upon passing through the region they received an encoded message from Captain Volin:
- _Alliance sympathisers on Xorrn desperately need your immediate assistance, and unfortunately you are the nearest squad of specialists. Attached is an IFF transponder frequency to broadcast when you arrive. Meet with Cacique Coorsa of the Clan Assembly, and you’ll be briefed fully on-station. Report to Xorrn with best possible speed, unfortunately you are their only hope.
In summary, the people of Xorrn were facing an imminent attack by an Imperial captain. Alliance Intelligence have a deep-cover agent attached to his crew and were able to learn about the impending attack. They have 43 hours until the Imperial fleet arrives, and 48 hours until Alliance reinforcements get here.
They found that the leadership of Xorrn was a little fractured – the head of the Clan Assembly and the chief engineer constantly arguing. They began getting briefings on their defences and the current situation. They know that there is a Mandalorian presence in the nearby Vlemoth Point system, and notorious pirate Captain Renlow advised them that they might also find aid from Kowak, but he’d recommend it as a last resort.
