  Double Trouble (Paladin)

Lucky was in her office finishing up on some paperwork that she hadn’t had the chance to finish before their last mission began when her datapad buzzed to life.  Ignoring it for a minute, she finished the small stack of paperwork in no time before grabbing the datapad and looking at the displayed message. It was short, urgently written but not very informative.

She sent out a message to the squad requesting they get to the briefing room in the next fifteen minutes. The task completed, she took a small swig out of a bottle of Corellian whiskey she kept in a desk drawer before locking up and heading to the briefing room.

Entering the room, she spotted tow new Troopers already seated around the table, acknowledging them; she sat at the head of the table and waited for the rest of the squad to arrive. Shortly afterward, the rest of the squad filed in and sat around the table, speaking softly.  Rubbing her hands together briskly, she took a look around the table and everyone seemed to notice as the conversation slowly died and soon there was only silence in the room.

“Good, everyone’s here. I’d like to start off by welcoming Privates XAL-35, Njall, leon463 and welcome back to Private First Class Renji. Any further introductions will have to wait unfortunately; we have a pressing matter to attend to. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a shiny new mission on our hands and a very important one at that.”

Pausing for a second to take a deep breath, she was surprised by the stillness in the room. Not wanting to elongate the silence, she continued to speak aware of the precious time they had.

“About an hour ago, we have received Intel that there are a large number of Gungans occupying a base on Rori who are up to no good. Our main objective is to stop them as quickly as possible before something major happens. The informant who has been feeding us the information has been found and eliminated a short while ago. Unfortunately, this is all I have for us to go on at present so let’s make sure to be well prepared.  Any questions? No? Alright, you all have until 2100 hours to get ready and to be on the shuttle.  If you are not onboard by then, we leave without you.”

Looking down at her hands briefly, she could feel tension slowly start to build as everyone sat silently waiting. Annoyed by the uncomfortable feeling it gave her; she looked up and said a few last words.

“This gives you four hours starting right now, make sure your armor is in mint condition, and get all of your gear packed up and ready but no over packing people. Renji, leon, XAL and Njall if you would follow me to the armory so I can give you all your equipment.”

Chairs scraped as everyone got up and started to head out the door, before they were out the door however, she reminded them to eat a nice warm dinner and that if they wanted a drink, their limit was one. She wanted sober Troopers as always.

The four Troopers had remained seated and seemed to be waiting patiently. From the corner of her eye, she spied Alan leaning on the door frame, waiting. “Alright you guys, let’s get moving. Alan, you can come along if you wish.”

She was happy when he walked alongside her and the six of them walked briskly to the armory. Using her keycard, she unlocked the door, opened it and walked inside. Moving to the back of the room, she got out four long black cases which contained the squad issued armor and weapons.

“In these cases you have your armor and weapons, the armor is Modified Shock Trooper armor, we do not use the Standard Stormtrooper armor in this squad any longer. Take good care of it and it will take good care of you.”

After she watched them for a minute or two look over their gear, she cleared her throat and all looked up at her.

“Now you all get ready to have yourselves some good Stormtrooper fun, again, don’t over pack and be sure to be at the shuttle on time. You have approximately three and a half hours left on the clock, dismissed!”

As they left the armory, she took Alan’s hand and the couple walked back home where she made a quick, nutritious dinner ready in no time. As they ate, they made small-talk until their plates were empty and their stomachs were full.  Looking upat the clock and back at Ala, she made him a proposition that would save them some time.

“You do the dishes while I pack?”

“Sounds good, you know what I like to bring on missions?”

“Of course.”

“Let’s get to it then.”

As she was leaving the kitchen, she could hear the water running in the sink. Walking to their small armory, she took out their armor, Alan’s DL-44, Blaster Rifles and Pistols and grenades. Putting everything in the hallway, she quickly used the Refresher before donning her under suit and piecing her armor together. By this time, Alan had finished the dishes and was putting on his armor as well.

Time was ticking by quickly; they didn’t have much time left. Helmet under one arm  and gear in the other, they walked out of the house and to the ship. The pilot was the only one onboard at the time but the squad came in not long after she had stowed away her gear and was seated by a viewport. She couldn’t wait for the mission to get underway, the wait made her get the pre-mission jitters.

Alan was lounging about in one of the bars in Tadath savouring a glass of Corellian ale when he received a message to go to the briefing room.  I wonder what’s going on thought Alan as he finished his drink and headed to the briefing room.

The walk was a long one and he wasn’t overly surprised to find out that he wasn’t the first one into the room but he was also happy to find that he wasn’t the last one.  Looking around he spotted several new faces and a face he had not seen for a very long time.  He nodded briefly to Renji who nodded back.  Alan remembered back to when Renji had been a member of Paladin and he was happy to have him back.  Nice to see a familiar face from the past he thought.

Alan turned his attention to Lucky when he heard the rubbing of her hands.  He listened as she rolled out the briefing to the squad.  It wasn’t much to go on but anything to get the squad out of Tadath was good enough for Alan, even though he had never heard of Rori before.  I’ve not even seen a Gungan pondered Alan as the briefing drew to a close.

Alan remained seated as the squad started to get up to go.  Before they left, Lucky reminded them to ensure they get a good meal and to limit their drinking to just one drink.  Alan thought back to his drink in the bar and thought to himself I guess that’s all I’m having then.

Leaning in the doorway, Alan decided to wait for Lucky to finish prepping the newbie’s.  As she was escorting them to the armoury, she said to Alan that he could accompany them if he wished.  Might as well he decided as he walked along with them to get their armour sorted.

It was nice to be home and enjoying a hearty meal.  It made perfect sense to have Lucky pack and for him to get the dishes sorted and Alan was happy when he heard that Lucky knew exactly what to pack.

Once everything was done, Alan soon got himself strapped into his jet black stormtrooper armour.  He grabbed his DL-44 heavy blaster pistols and strapped them to his hips.  It felt good to be in his armour and both his blasters on his side.

Entering the ship, Alan noticed that no-one from the squad had arrived yet but they were early.  He paced the ship, waiting for their arrival, eagerly looking forward to the mission getting underway.  I hope this planet is nice and warm thought Alan as he waited for the rest of the squad to arrive.

Zeshaun was more excited about this mission than he had ever been before. I get to see a gungan! Zeshaun had read about them in his text books but had never seen one up close before and was ecstatic . Zeshaun went back to his room and grabbed his duffel bag that he had yet to put away after their latest mission. He reloaded all his weapons and holstered his pistols. He placed his shotgun, and normal rifle into the bag with some extra clothes and ammo. He placed his assault rifle on top of his bag. Zeshaun decided that he wanted to eat something before he left so he left his bag and weapons on his bed and went out to the cafeteria.

Zeshaun bought some soup and a sandwhich, he wrapped half of his sandwich and put it his bag so he would have something to eat on the trip to Rori. Zeshaun slung both his rifle and his bag over his shoulder and walked down the halls in the direction of the hangars.

Zeshaun waved to a few of the mechanics as he entered the hangar and he made his way to the ramp of the ship and climbed inside. He found his own little spot next to the lockers and he stuffed his bag and rifle into the locker right next to his seat. Zeshaun tried to just sit and wait but he felt uneasy doing nothing so he decided to stay in the hangar and hang out while he waited.

The only thing he could find in the hangar were some mechanics, old tools, spare parts, and boxes. The hangar had a very high ceiling with large beams from the walls supporting it. Zeshaun could see out the hangar door, revealing thick woods and the tops of some buildings. Zeshaun walked over to a box closer to the door and took off his helmet so he could feel the breeze.

Zeshaun heard someone exiting the ship. I thought I was the first one here. Zeshaun got up and jogged back to the ship to make sure it wasn't anyone suspicious, he was relieved to see Alan stretching his legs at the foot of the ramp. He waved and Alan came over.

Alan happened to have a deck of cards on him and so they sat down on some crates and started to play.

"Have you ever seen a gungan before?" Zeshaun asked, knowing Alan had been around here longer.

Alan shook his head and laughed. He too must have been surprised when Lucky told them that their targets were gungans. They played a few more rounds of cards before other squad members started to arrive.

Walking round inside the ship, Alan decided to stretch his legs some more and started walking out of the ship.  He smiled as he noticed the first of the squad to arrive, Zeshaun.  I might’ve guessed he’d be one of the first on the scene thought Alan.

"Have you ever seen a Gungan before?" asked Zeshaun.

Alan shook his head and laughed.  He had heard about Gungans but he had never in his life met one and he was now looking forward to seeing them up close.  It was certainly going to be an interesting mission.

“You fancy a game of cards whilst we wait?” asked Alan.

“Sure, why not.  What’s the bet?” asked Zeshaun.

“Oh, no betting, just for fun” replied Alan.  He had played cards often enough to know that he wasn’t very good at them.  He still liked to play for fun, even if he knew he would most likely get beat.

Zeshaun shrugged and they sat down.  Alan shuffled the cards and started to deal them out.  They started playing a few rounds and true enough Zeshaun seemed to win most of the games.  I’m glad there is no wagers on these otherwise I’d be out of a lot of credits right now thought Alan.  Still, Alan was happy that he at least won a couple of games.

“So, Renji used to be a member of Paladin?” asked Zeshaun as he won another round.

“Yes, I served alongside him a long time ago when he was in Paladin, fine trooper, it’s good to have him back” replied Alan.

Alan heard the hangar bay doors open and both Zeshaun and Alan looked over. 

“Here come a few more of the squad” commented Alan.  I hope everyone gets here on time as we will leave without them if they are late thought Alan.

Slouched onto the shuttle as he grabbed an overhead rung and gripped it looking over the 2 in front of him played Cards, nick walked passed him and pulled up a chair to the table where Alan and Zeshaun already sat, waiting for the next game so he could actually start the credit betting. Requiem ripped off his helmet and rubbed his eye as he saw Private Renji staying motionless watching the card game with a fatigued look in his eye.

Newbie? Let's find out Requiem sat down behind Alan and tapped his shoulder eagerly waiting to get the answer so that he could say his greetings and welcomes to see what his attitude was like. Requiem waited slowly as Alan placed down his own card's and got ready to become the dealer this round as he turned around and gave Requiem a stern look.

" So who's the private ? " Requiem asked emphasizing the 'P' more than others in his small sentence.

" He's not new just so you know. . . " Alan said as he than turned back to the game continuing on without him as he spoke.

" What do you mean ? " Requiem asked wondering if what he said was a mistake.

" He was already in the squad before. You didn't know that ? " Alan laughed heartily as he continued to stare forward.

Requiem slowly gave Alan a mischievous look as he than signaled Alan's card's to Nick with his fingers. He laughed and began to smile as Requiem finished only to hide his expression as Alan's changed to curiosity. Requiem smiled and redirected his gaze to the 'New but Old' Private First-Class Renji.

" Hiya ! " Requiem said as he looked toward's Renji.

" Hello. . .nice to meet you " He replied keeping his vision toward the card game in front of him.

nice meeting you than ? Requiem slowly shrugged and he recounted the equipment strapped all over his body ready to land on Rori and take care of the gungan's Lucky was talking about. Requiem was even eager enough to actually find out what the gungan's were exactly since this was his first time ever getting to meet one or even to get rid of one, he slowly re-listened to the comlink message Lucky sent to him and the other squad member's just to get the jist of the mission.

“About an hour ago, we have received Intel that there are a large number of Gungans occupying a base on Rori who are up to no good. Our main objective is to stop them as quickly as possible before something major happens. The informant who has been feeding us the information has been found and eliminated a short while ago. Unfortunately, this is all I have for us to go on at present so let’s make sure to be well prepared.  Any questions? No? Alright, you all have until 2100 hours to get ready and to be on the shuttle.  If you are not on board by then, we leave without you.”

Requiem listened to the message and slowly went up through the ship straying to find Lucky sitting looking out of the window beside her.

" So. . .when we leaving ? "Requiem asked trying to start a covnersation.

" When the shuttle's ready to go and I give conformation. . . " Lucky asked keeping her gaze at the window.

" I thought we had a time limit ? " Requiem asked wondering himself where the rest of the squad was currently as he than peered around his person.

Lucky gave him a stern look." Just relax Req, we'll be in the Chommell sector soon enough. "

Requiem nodded and listened to order's as he sat near the exit ramp of the large shuttle waiting for them to take off to their next mission station the swampy moon of the planet of Naboo. Gungan's here I come.

Nick slowly looked at Requiem and walked over as Alan and Zeshaun protested about his action since it was his turn.

" Just relax, you seem to uptight " Nick said as he than placed his leg's up into the air onto a small table in front of them, he than placed his arms behind his head and crossed them and than smiled at Requiem wishing for him to do the same.

Requiem followed his directions and did the same, the both sat their looking up into the many interlocking connections in the shuttle ready to leave.

Alan couldn't believe it when Nick left the table.  He glanced over at Zeshaun and decided to deal out another hand but to make it the last one.

"I'm out after this round" said Alan.

"Not you too" objected Zeshaun.

"Fraid so" replied Alan as he dealt out the cards.  The game did not last long and it was no surprise to Alan when Zeshaun won.

"You want the cards?" asked Alan, unsure as to whether Zeshaun wanted to find someone else to play cards with.

"No thanks" replied Zeshaun as he handed the cards back to Alan.

Alan tucked the cards away and decided to find out more about where they were going to.  After just returning back from a frozen planet he was hoping that his findings would show that they would not be returning to yet another cold planet.

Alan wandered over to a computer terminal on the ship and called up the planet Rori.  He read through all the information and was happy to see that it wasn't going to be cold.  Although he wasn't overly keen on hearing it was going to be swampy.  Just once, can't they find a nice planet, with golden beaches and nice warm sun thought Alan, although he was certain that such a planet would never get into enough trouble to warrant a visit from the Vast Empire.

Alan felt the rumbling of the ship under his feet as he realised the pilot was going through the pre-flight checks and the engine had been started.  Guess we will be leaving soon thought Alan.  He glanced around at all the squad members and wondered if they were still waiting on anyone else to arrive.

Alan was looking forward to seeing how well the new squad members were going to fare once they were put under real pressure.

Requiem winced as he felt the shuttle slowly rock out of place and than levitate it's large mass off its landing zone and than begin to float towards the planet's atmosphere. Requiem slowly stayed stationery as the shuttle rocked out of the planet's atmosphere towards the Chommell system. Requiem smiled as he looked out the window beside him and saw the vast emptiness of space in his wake and slowly glistened before his eye's. Naboo System here I come!

" Beautiful isn't it ? " Zeshaun said as he than sat down beside Requiem seemingly done card game. Requiem smiled at the Trandoshan as he than looked out the window himself.

" Yea. . . what I wouldn't give to just fly out there and explore different planet's myself, well maybe with a couple of friends. " Requiem said already a little bit tired of the 3 missions he had done.

Zeshaun slowly nodded and than said his own dream for the future, and Requiem was astounded enough he was already in it.
" Heh, the battlefield is the place for me. "

Requiem nodded and than slowly stuffed his wishes down inside to make sure that they didn't get out again, another time when he was on a mission.Dreaming can wait Requiem grabbed his weapon's and than slowly reached for his repair kit, he than slowly took it apart and than checked the weapon overall making sure that it would be ready for anything when the time comes.

Requiem slowly placed it back in order and than reassembled the weapon to make sure that it wasn't going to break apart when he was using it. Since it would cost him his life in a close situation.
Zeshaun smiled at Requiem once more and than got up, he walked over to Alan and began to speak to him slowly. Requiem slowly nodded as he left and than looked back through the window's to the star's that protruded from in front of him as he tried to name out each constellation and flew by him on his way to the Naboo moon Rori.

Requiem slowly chanted them out as Zeshaun walked back and slowly began to help him, it soon turned into a miniature game of I-spy as the ship rocked.Requiem smiled as he saw the planet Naboo showing in front of him larger than life that was fast Requiem smiled and than braced for impact as the shuttle broke through the moon planet Rori's atmosphere and than slowly drift closer to there main point of direction.

" Seem's were here " Lucky said as she slowly exited the cock pit

" Yup, what's next ? " Zeshaun said as Renji, leon, XAL and Njall nodded at his question eager to get the question answered themselves.

" Well, we get to the Gungan's base somewhere on the planet and we stop their plans. Simple as that " Lucky replied eager to get to the mission herself.

Zeshaun grabbed his stuff and stood by the ramp waiting for it to open up. It let out a hiss and the ramp slowly lowered and revealed a dark foggy forest and when Zeshaun stepped out onto the the ground, his feet sunk slightly into the ground. This should be fun. Zeshaun stood outside and they all formed up around Lucky.

She said that they would have to walk but only until they got to the place that the VE had left speeders in a clearing close by. Zeshaun's eyes brightened up when he heard they would get to go around the swamp in a speeder. That should make this search quicker. Zeshaun was eager to get going and find those speeders. Lucky got out a datapad and quickly tapped a few buttons and started to walk off into the woods. Zeshaun could hear the shuttle restart it's engines and take off again.

Zeshaun followed Lucky through the woods, making sure not to get sidetracked. He didn't want to get lost in the swamps. After 10 minutes of tiring walking they came upon a clearing, and sure enough there were 9 new 74-z speeder bikes hidden by moss and bushes. They started to uncover the speeders quickly so that they could get moving again.

Zeshaun suddenly heard the snap of  twig, and he looked up. It seemed that the rest of the squad had heard it as well and they all looked at each other slightly confused.

"It was probably only our imagina-" Before Alan could finish his sentence a blaster bolt bounced off of the speeder infront of him.

"Everyone down!" Lucky shouted.

They all took cover behind their speeders, Zeshan kept working while he was crouched getting it turned on and ready to go. He grabbed his rifle and he took a peek to see who their attacker was. He couldn't see anyone and was angry that he didn't have a clear target to shoot at. Suddenly a large ring of weird amphibious looking creatures stepped out of the woods with their blasters raised.

They had long ears, eyes that protruded from their heads and long mouths, These, must be gungans. Zeshaun thought, knowing that he had never seen this kind of creature before. Lucky's voice came in over the comm.

"Get on your bikes and we'll just blast through their line."

Lucky didn't have to tell him twice, Zeshaun quickly hopped up onto his speeder and he had his hand on the throttle before he was even properly seated. He felt the crunch of bones as he hit one of the gungans head on, Zeshaun sped off into the woods, dodging branches and trees. Damn, how am I supposed to know where to go. Zeshaun slowed his bike down, almost to a stop.

As if Lucky had read his mind, he got a transmission with some coordinates on it, I guess that's where we're meeting up. Zeshaun put his speeder into gear again and sped off toward the point.

Damn cursed Alan as he hid down behind the speeder, blaster bolts flying around him.  He grabbed one of his blasters, his eyes searching the dense swampy forest for any sign of their attackers.  Then he saw them, his eyes widened slightly at their sight.  He wasn’t sure what a Gungan was supposed to look like, but he never expected them to look like that.  He immediately lined up a shot and brought one of them down quickly with a well placed shot between its eyes.  Well they die nice and easy thought Alan.

Alan’s comm. sparked to life and Lucky’s voice came through saying "Get on your bikes and we'll just blast through their line”.

Alan looked back at the approaching Gungans.  There did seem to be quite a few of them but Alan did not like the idea of fleeing from an incoming enemy force, he preferred to stay and fight it out, but orders were orders.  He fired another shot at one of the Gungans, satisfied to see it drop before clambering onto a nearby speeder and throttling up its engines.

The speeder immediately hurtled to life and sped off through the ranks of the Gungans.  Alan had never before ridden a speeder like this before and as soon as it moved off he immediately panicked as he thought he was going to fall off.  He got himself into a better position and slowed down the speeder as the terrain was going by far too fast for him to react to any potential dangers.

Glancing around, he already noticed that there was no-one else from his squad in his vicinity.  Great he thought to himself wondering how he was ever going to find his squad mates.  A transmission came through and Alan felt a sense of relief wash over him as it contained a set of co-ordinates.

Bringing the speeder around, he started to make a course towards the co-ordinates.  The speeder sputtered slightly and Alan glanced down to see a small plume of black smoke emanating from where the Gungan’s initial blaster bolt had hit it.  He slowed the speeder down and looking at the damage thought don’t you dare die on me.

Njall, eager about his first mission was already in a battle situation and he was exited, yet scared.  This was his first battle, but the Gungans looked really creepy (and weird). 

He jumped on his speeder and zoomed into battle with the rest of the Squad, blasting left and right at everything that came near him.  Lucky ordered him to take down a small group of Gungans and he went towards them, killing the majority of Gungans in that group within a few seconds.  however, one of the survivors took a pole and "tripped" Njall speeder sending spinning towards a large boulder.  Njall was thrown clear at the last second, bruised but alive.

Njall recovered from his daze to see a couple Gungans running towards him with murderous looks in their eyes.  He pulled out his blaster and shot them dead.  He then tried to reset his comm but all he got was static.  Njall took off sprinting to find the other members of the squad for further orders.

Alan veered the speeder slowly through the swampy area.  With the damage sustained and also the unfamiliarity of guiding the speeder at high velocity, he decided that it was best to get there in one piece rather than not at all.

A blaster bolt flew past him and Alan glanced behind him to find that a speeder was approaching him quickly, piloted by a Gungan.  Just great thought Alan as he accelerated the speeder.  The speeder started shaking as a bigger plume of smoke erupted from the speeder.

The blaster bolts were getting closer and closer to Alan's speeder and looking down at the speeder's damage he knew that it was only a matter of time before either the speeder exploded or the Gungan gunned him down.  I can't even try to evade this bastard thought Alan as he knew the smoke was guiding the Gungan to him no matter where he went.

Deciding there was nothing else for it.  Alan hurled himself off the speeder.  He landed on his back in the mushy swamp, his breath leaving him.  Glancing up he spotted his speeder erupting into a large fireball as the Gungan shot it down.  Hopefully he didn't see my exit thought Alan as he watched to see where the Gungan went to.

Alan's heart fell when he watched the Gungan veer round and start strafing the ground.  Alan crawled as quickly as he could without giving away his position to a nearby bush.  The Gungan, not knowing where Alan's exact position was began strafing runs around the nearby terrain.

Grabbing both blasters, Alan got ready, knowing that he had to eliminate the Gungan before he got lucky.  The Gungan sped past Alan's position and Alan knew that it was now or never.  Getting up from his position, Alan fired repeatedly at the Gungan.  It wasn't an easy shot as the speeder was accelerating away but one of his shots struck the Gungan in the back.  Alan wasn't sure if it was a kill shot or not but the speeder spun out of control and exploded against a tree.

Holstering his weapon, Alan took a deep breath to regain his composure.  Now to get to the rendezvous point thought Alan as he started walking towards it.  I just hope it's not too far he thought.

Lucky was in formation on a speeder wit hthe rest of the squad, the only person missing was Alan. Hoping nothing had gone seriously wrong, she waited a few minutes but when he still was a no-show, she keyed her comm while still constantly surveying the area.

"Alan, everything alright?"

"The Gungans love me too much. They busted my speeder and I'm now on foot."

She dind't like the sound of that at all.Debating whether to stay with the squad or zip away and be back shortly, she decided on the latter. This would test the troopers on how long they could hold their own without someone in command with them.

Powering up her speeder, she sped off amidst the trees and pungent smell of the swampy forest and found Alan walking slowly towards their rendezvous point. Slowing down, she looked down at him and sighed with relief that he was still in one piece.

"Need a ift?"

"Thanks."

He hopped on and they sped on toward the rendezvous oint, about a minute before they reached it however, her comm crackled to life and Zeshaun's voice could be ehard over the comm.

"Lucky, we have company."

"Fire at will, we'll be there in a sec."

Sure enough, when they got to the rendezvous point, there were atleast a dozen Gungans taking cover behind forest wildlife. oh boy Using the speeder's gun turret, she fired a shot at a very skinny not so leafy tree and one of them went down with a thud. As she was prepping the gun for another shot, she felt Alan hoist one of his weapons at shoulder-height and knew he would fire in seconds.

Alan was thankful to see Lucky arrive with her speeder.  He knew it was going to be a long trek to the rendezvous point and he hadn't been looking forward to a long trek.

"Need a lift?" asked Lucky.

"Thanks" replied Alan as he clambered onto the speeder.  Wrapping his arms around her waist as the speeder leapt forward and onwards toward the rendezvous point.  This is much better than walking thought Alan as he watched the scenery fly past him.

Alan suddenly became aware that Lucky was speaking into her comm.  "Fire at will, we'll be there in a sec" she said.  One word went through Alan's head as he heard her, trouble.

Lucky's speeder burst into an open area where Alan could see several parked speeders and then he noticed the squad crouched in a covering position with their weapons raised.  He glanced around trying to locate the Gungans.  The speeder lurched slightly as its weapons were fired.

Alan looked in the direction of the firing and spotted at least a dozen Gungans hiding, some closing in on the squad.  Alan quickly grabbed one of his blasters, found a target and fired.  A Gungan cried out and fell down dead.  Alan watched as the rest of the squad started to advance on the Gungans.

Alan leaned forward and pressed his mouth against Lucky's ear and said "Let's circle around and give the squad some covering fire".

Alan wasn't sure whether or not Lucky would be able to hear him over the sound of the speeder and the firing of its weapons but he noticed her nod her head.  The speeder banked and began to circle the area, firing when she had a clear shot and Alan picking off the occasional Gungan.

The Gungans looked around, unsure as to who to target, it looked like they were pinned down between the circling speeder and the squad.  Alan was certain the battle would not last long.

Requiem slowly reloaded his IvP-18 S-FOX Machine Pistol and than continually fired down towards the remaining Gungan's. They were somehow highly trained and they moved around each of the shot's with ease and continued to press forward for the kill. Requiem slowly reached to his side and pulled out a C-22 Fragmentation Grenade from his thigh.

He slowly grunted as he threw the C-22 Fragmentation Grenade from his palm and it landed in a heap 5 m from the nearest Gungan. here we go Requiem covered his ear's and got into a fetal position as he winced and it exploded, shrapnel flew towards 3 of the 6 gungan's left and luckily they were all close enough to get into the grenade's fatal zone. Requiem smiled as he heard their scream's and a loud thud as the rest of the gungan's stopped moving and began an army crawl.

Requiem reached over his cover with his weapon and than fired his round from his IvP-18 S-FOX Machine Pistol while keeping himself in cover into the enemy. Requiem smiled as he saw the 3 of the moving gungan's become 1 as he hit the other 2 with the rest of his round. Requiem watched as Lucky got up and fired down into the gungan's back as he slowly raised his hand after she shot him in the spine and he slowly dropped his hand to the floor in a large heap.

Requiem slowly stood at the already pre-set coordinates in his datapad and than looked around at the other 7 member's of the squad looking towards Lucky and Alan eager to get the rest of the mission closer to finish than beginning. Lucky slowly sighed and than looked to the odd bunch in front of her. She placed her weapon back into its holster and began to speak.

" Okay, now that that's over. . ." Lucky said as she than exhaled.

Lucky slowly inputted more coordinates into her data pad and Requiem watched as his slowly shook. Requiem lifted it up to see more coordinates as she began to speak " These are the actual coordinate's to the entry building this was just a stop T made so that we could confront the gungan's and regroup to than get to the building together when the gungan's stopped tailing us. "

makes sense Requiem nodded and than slowly walked back to his speeder as the rest of the squad slowly analyzed there coordinate's making sure they placed themselves in the right start direction. Requiem smiled as he than sat down onto the seat of the speeder and than activated the thrusters. He than positions the speeder's turret forward to make sure he could be able to use it.

" See you guy's there " Requiem said as his speeder was ready to go.

" Okay, you should all be there at the elapsed time on the datapad, if not than we suspect that something happened to you, and we'll be there soon. "Alan said as he slowly jumped onto his speeder and got ready to get it fully activated.

Requiem slowly lifted up the brake and than placed his leg over the guard as the speeder sped to life and than raced down to its next destination which was only 2-3 clicks ahead of there current position. we,ll be their soon

Now that the Gungan’s had been defeated, Lucky gave the squad a new set of co-ordinates.  Glancing around, Alan noticed that the Gungan’s had followed them using their own speeders.  I guess I don’t need to pair up with Lucky thought Alan as he went over to the nearest available speeder.  Part of him was sorry about that as he had enjoyed the ride over but another part of him knew that the squad would be far more effective if everyone was riding their own speeder.

“See you guy's there” Requiem said as his speeder was ready to go.

“Okay, you should all be there at the elapsed time on the datapad, if not than we suspect that something happened to you, and we'll be there soon” said Alan said as he slowly jumped onto his speeder and got ready to get it fully activated.

Alan watched as Requiem sped off first and then one by one the rest of the squad hopped onto their speeder bikes and sped off into the distance.  Soon it was just Lucky and he left in the clearing.  Lucky straddled her bike and looked back at Alan who was getting his bike prepped.

“Don’t go destroying that one” called out Lucky, “I don’t want to have to collect you a second time”.

“As if I’d destroy another one” replied Alan.

Lucky laughed and geared up her bike.  “See you at the rendezvous point” she called out as her speeder bike sped off.

Damn I hate these things thought Alan.  He was just about to move off when he heard the sound of a twig snapping.  Reflexes instantly took over as he leapt off the speeder, a blaster bolt impacting on a nearby tree.

Both his blasters were instantly in his hand as he sought out the source of the location of who had fired at him.  Next time I go first thought Alan.  He noticed movement, a bush close by shook.  Crawling along the ground so as not to give away his position, he moved stealthily closer so he could get a better look.

He was surprised when he finally got to a better viewing position and spotted a Gungan.  Its flesh was badly scarred and burned and Alan could tell instantly that it was one of the Gungans that had been caught up in the explosion of the Fragmentation Grenade.  Tough bastard he thought to himself, although looking at him he knew that the Gungan could not live very long from the injuries it had sustained.

The Gungan staggered, its eyes looking glassy as it looked in earnest for the whereabouts of the black clad Imperial.  Alan wasted no time in moving quickly and quietly behind the Gungan.  The Gungan, in its weakened and injured state did not hear or notice Alan’s advance.

“Why don’t you just die” said Alan as he stood behind the Gungan, his blaster pointed at the Gungan’s head.  The Gungan knew that his time in this Galaxy had come to an end.  He closed its eyes and never saw again as Alan’s blaster fired and the Gungan’s lifeless body collapsed to the floor.

Time to get to this rendezvous before anything else happens thought Alan as he quickly glanced around before clambering onto the speeder, gearing it up and speeding off into the nearby terrain.

For the first time, Zeshaun almost felt bad for shooting down his enemies. The gungans were so unique and so exotic to Zeshaun that he felt like he was a poacher or something. Nevertheless Zeshaun gunned them down, as long as he as fighting for his life, he didn't care what he looked or acted like as long as he kept himself alive.

Zeshaun sped up slightly, wanting to catch up with Requiem who had left before him. He dodged trees, logs, and other obstacles with ease and was at the set coordinates not too long after Requiem had arrived. He stopped his bike right next to Requiem's and nodded hello.

He hopped off and made sure he hadn't lost any of his guns while he was riding over hear when he saw the leaves rustle behind Requiem. Damn, not again. Zeshaun quickly grabbed his rifle and slowly advanced, he attacked the leaves with the end of his rifle but he couldn't find anyone. Strange

Zeshaun could tell Requiem was giving him a weird look from under his helmet "What was that all about?" he asked.

Zeshaun just shook his head and turned his back to the woods and walked back to his speeder but then he saw it again but this time it was on his side. I hate the woods Zeshaun thought,  he assumed that it was nothing like last time.

Zeshaun leaned back against his speeder and tapped his fingers anxiously. Soon Njall arrived, slightly overshooting the spot but getting there nonetheless. When Njall arrived, Zeshaun couldn't help but notice that the bushed behind Njall were moving as well. This can't just be my imagination. Zeshaun thought.

A sudden cry made Zeshaun jump and he saw the two distinctive eyes of a gungan. Zeshaun lifted his rifle and shot randomly into the bush a yelp told him that he had hit his target.

"The others better get here fast, we don't know how good these gungans are." Zeshaun said reloading his rifle.

Requiem and Njall both grabbed their weapons and stood, pacing around to make sure that they didn't have their backs to any, one place for too long. A humming sound caught Zeshaun's ear and he whipped around only to find himself pointing his rifle right at Lucky and Alan, who arrived together.

"Sorry." Zeshuan lowered his rifle.

Alan nodded and he dismounted from his speeder and took out his guns. I hate not being able to see my enemies. Zeshuan thought worriedly scouting out the woods.

Private Njall crashed through the bushes to find Requiem and Zeshaun Staring at him. 

“Hey guys,” said Njall

“Fall in and come with us” said Zeshaun

Njall followed the two of the to the clearing, where they soon heard speeder-mounted Gungans coming.  Njall aimed towards the noise and thought to himself that if a genie showed up about now, his one wish would be to actually be able to see these %#&@ing Gungans.  Anyone could sense the tension in the air.  It got so great that Njall almost fired
when the speeder appeared, carrying Lucky and Alan. 

“Ok, let’s go, but keep an eye out for any survivors” Lucky ordered

The group moved out on foot with Lucky in the lead, Njall close behind.  The small group jumped at every slightest noise, but came to a split in the road unharmed.  A Gungan lay in the center of the split, a blaster bolt in his head. 

Njall asked, “Which way do we go?”

There seemed to be no obvious way until Requiem noticed that the blaster bolt mark was on the back of the corpse’s head and his feet were pointing in the direction of the left path. 

“Squad left, lets go” Lucky ordered
Zeshaun went scouting ahead, and reported that there were around twenty Gungans stationed at a “roadblock” close ahead.  Lucky ordered the squad into the foliage and soon they saw the force of Gungans. 

Lucky told the squad the battle plan, “Ok, on three Alan will send two grenades rolling out.  When they explode, we charge out firing.  Got it?”

“Roger” everyone else quickly said.

The grenades exploded with a blinding flash!  Lucky led the squad out of the brush and they all took up firing positions.  In seconds, the group of Gungans was decimated. 

“Everyone stay alert, keep an eye out for more of them.  Squad forward” Ordered Lucky.

“Everyone stay alert, keep an eye out for more of them.  Squad forward” ordered Lucky.

The squad moved forward, quietly, with Lucky in the lead.  Everyone was on high alert as the Gungans had the advantage of knowing the terrain and able to blend in with their surroundings.  They could be anywhere and you might not know about it until they attacked.

Lucky held up her hand and the squad came to a halt.  Alan moved swiftly up to Lucky to find out why the squad had come to a halt.  Kneeling beside her, she motioned with her hand.  Alan glanced up and saw that up ahead were three Gungans mounted on top of Kaadu's.  Alan had read up on the Gungans and the numerous beasts that they used but this was the first time he had ever laid eyes on them.

"At least there are only three of them" said Alan.

"Agreed, let's take them out quickly and quietly" replied Lucky, "no grenades, I don't want other Gungans to suddenly appear".

"Roger that" replied Alan as he waved the squad forward and into an attacking posture.

The squad burst forth from the clearing and attacked the startled Gungans.  One Kaadu reared up, surprised at the sudden strange attackers.  The Gungan was flung from the saddle.  The Kaadu immediately ran off into the bushes whilst the downed Gungan was quickly gunned down.

Alan noticed that one of the Gungans was down already and thought to himself this is too easy.  He lined up a shot and fired at the nearest Gungan.  His eyes widened when the Gungan deflected the bolt from what looked like some form of shield.  They have shields thought Alan, he hadn't read everything there was to know about Gungans and now he wished he had because he had never found out that they had shield technology.

The Kaadu charged at Alan and he was startled to see how quickly the beast moved.  The Gungan lashed out at Alan with some form of spear and Alan dove to the ground, the spear narrowly missing him.  He could hear a crackle emanating from the spear as it whizzed over his head.  Damn thing must have some form of electricity going through it thought Alan as he was grateful that it hadn't connected with him.

Alan glanced round at the squad as they tried to regroup from the initial attack from the remaining Kaadu's.  This isn't going to be as easy as I had first thought pondered Alan as he fired off more shots at the Gungan which were quickly deflected.

Requiem slowly sighed as he began to fire towards the large shield protecting the gungan's and there Kaadu's underneath there bodies. so the gungan's have shield technology Requiem slowly ran to the right and hid behind the foliage, he placed his back against a tree trunk pondering about what to do next so that he could get through their translucent ray shields.

Requiem smiled as the idea crept up on him from behind." I got it! "

Lucky stopped firing and looked to Requiem, " What ? " She slowly continued back continuously hitting the shield endlessly with no hesitation in the shield's energy. Waiting for Requiem to finish with his thought.

Requiem smiled as he slowly grabbed one of his flyhigh knives from his side, he waved it to Lucky as she gave him an unusual look. He slowly shrugged and than threw it at the shield. Requiem smiled as the knife flew through the shield and than penetrated the left Gungan's skull. He slowly moved from out of his cover and grabbed his knives at his side. He continually threw them through the shield as the Gungan's were decimated.

Requiem watched as the Kaadu's shield dissipated and they than ran off into the wood's running away from the squad. good I was right Requiem slowly turned around and exhaled as he rotated to see a vast amount of pondering face's about what just happened in thier mission.

" So. . .want to tell me how that happened ? " Nick said as he slowly rubbed his chin.

" I didn't know it was true until now. . . " Lucky replied as she just figured out Requiem's plan.

" What are you talking about? " Alan said as he than gave Lucky a curious look.

"The Gungan shields used during the Battle of Naboo blocked lasers, but droids could pass through because of their relatively slow movement in comparison to the laser bolts. Some shields only held back anything with a high-energy output. . .so ? " Lucky added at the end for someone to finish off her and Requiem's thought.

" Ooooohh, The throwing knive's didn't have and energy output so it could go through the shield like it wasn't their. " Zeshaun said.

" Yup, but actually it was dangerous if it didn't work his knife would just deflect back. . .it was a risky move Requiem but thanks I'll give you that " Alan said as he than exhaled.

Requiem smiled as they than continued to walk forward with the rest of the squad in tow through the forest and continued even after the path ended. Lucky slowly signaled as they than entered a small clearing to see a large building with one light at the 3rd story of the large recreational building. " If we're lucky, the Gungan's should be in there and we can get off this rock " Requiem said. Lucky nodded somehow on the same wavelength with Requiem and they began to step closer to the large building.

Leon sighed at the situation at hand. "Those gungans....." Leon thought. Leo's heart seemed to be pounding really fast. He knew what a battle situation was but he wasn't really so fascinated with shooting his rifle at gungans. "Why do I have the feeling these gungans are smarter than they seem" He said in a quiet tone. They were already shot at before and Leon didn't feel like getting shot at again because of saying a sentence.

After listening on the squad's talk he had a small thought. "So basically we have to phase through the shields by just walking through it interesting wonder if we could get that kind of tech but that's not an important thing to think about stay focused"

As they approached the building Leon took cover by a tree. It wasn't sufficient but it would have to do for now. He stared at the entrance to the building. "If there are windows on the side we could flank em but it could draw attention it's really up to you guys" Leon said. Although he was just a private he thought higher than that but he knew his place, so he chose his word wisely.

Zeshaun listened to Leon's idea and he personally thought it was a great idea. He turned to Alana and Lucky seeing if they thought the same. As he expected, they thought the idea was good. Lucky said to just make sure thy meet up on the 3rd floor, clear any resistance. With that they split up into two groups

Alan, Zeshaun, Njall and Renji were in one group and Lucky, Xal, Leon, and Requiem were in the other. The squad talked for a bit and decided that Alan's party would storm the front door, and Lucky's group could get in through an alternative entrance. Soon after the two groups parted ways and Alan was getting ready to attack the front door.

No gaurds.. Zeshaun looked all around for any kind of defense system but couldn't find any. Weird Zeshaun shifted his rifle in his hands nervously, not being able to find any defensive systems could mean that they were walking into a trap It's too good to be sure

"Let's go." Alan's voice broke the silence.

They silently moved up to the door, flanking either side of it. Alan gave Zeshaun the signal to kick down the door, he moved in front of it and with one swift kick, the door fell inwards revealing a nearly empty room with stairs leading up and another door in the back.

Alan quickly shuffled into the room, the group fanned out and scanned the room. Still no surprises. Zeshaun thought. Maybe these gungans aren't as good as they seem.

A sudden movement from the back door caught Zeshaun's eye and he saw a hand throw two small things into the room.

"GRENADES!" Zeshaun yelled hitting the ground.

Everyone dropped down and waited for the explosion but the explosion was much smaller than Zeshaun expected. The room started to fill up with a thick smoke. Zeshaun heard the doors lock and he realized what was going on. Damn, it's either gas or a smoke screen for something.

Zeshaun slowly got up hoping no one was waiting to shoot him down. He switched to his thermal visor and saw that there were at least 5 separate heat signals coming from behind the door.

"Alan, there are 5 people behind that door." Zeshaun said.

"I see them." Alan confirmed.

The rest of the squad had now switched to the thermal visors and were slowly walking around the room. Although the thermal visors helped with their vision it wasn't close to being good. Let's hope we can get out of this room before the gungans decide to come in here and gun us down.

Requiem slowly began walking around the building with Xal, leon and Lucky leading in front of them, he casually walked up to onte of the building's window's on its ground floor. no ones there ? Requiem's face changed to surprise as he than saw a 2 small item's roll from a door at the back of the facility and saw them explode to release a thick smoke into the area. sithspawn Requiem ran after the rest of his group and than barred their way from the door as they were about to enter.

" Zeshaun and the rest of the group are stuck in a thick smoke screen, " Requiem slowly began let go of the door.

Requiem continued slowly." I used my thermal and their are 5 other signal's other than Zeshaun, Alan, Renji and Njall in their "

Lucky looked at him unusually and than activated her thermal vision, the rest of the squad except Requiem who already had his on turned on their thermal's and than waited for further order's from Lucky. She nodded and than signaled at the door that stood in front of them harmlessly. Requiem walked up to it and kicked it down with a force as it than crashed to the floor inside of the room.

Requiem slowly placed his hand to his mouth as he coughed, Sithspawn. Requiem winced as he finally figured out what the smoke finally was Tear Gas. Requiem spoke into the comlink with not knowing that he was slurring his speech from the smoke that somehow could invade his helmet and physically infect his body.

" This gas is somehow getting through my helmet. We have to get out of here before the gas fully takes effect.. " Requiem yelled into the comlink.

" We cant leave until we get to the 3rd floor, if we get to high ground we have more time to think about getting out of here. " Lucky said as she slowly walked up to the large step's in front of her.

Requiem ran up the large step's making sure he was connected into the rail unable to see where he was going while the thermal vision was activated and his ocular vision was occupied scanning the area. He slowly let go of the railing as it suddenly stopped and he turned off his thermal vision. Requiem looked around the area only to see 3 canister's ahead and 2 behind himsithspit.

He than looked to Lucky as he than gave him an astonished look as she herself was guided into the trap from the smoke billowing around them. time to go .

" GET DOWN " Lucky yelled as gungan's jumped from their cover and than began to fire down into the haze that now protruded from the 1st floor.

Requiem smiled as he heard a slowly continuous thud of bodies hitting the ground. He than figured out that they couldn't see through the smoke themselves and it was only a matter of time until each of them killed one another with their own plan not working the way they planned it too. I guess they didn't think that through

Requiem winced as they continued through the canister's and walked up the second flight of stair's to see the rest of the squad hovering around a small light and someone tied into a chair. what's going on ? Requiem walked around it only to see a Gungan with wounds covering his body and the squad interrogating him on what has happened so far. something Tell's me this is just the beginning of this mission.

Switching to his thermal imaging, Alan could make out the Gungans in the other room.  The smoke from the grenades was somehow filtering into his helmet.  How is that possible he thought as he realised that the smoke was making him slightly groggy.  Got to find a way out of here thought Alan.

Zeshaun must have been thinking the same thing as Alan felt a tap on his shoulder.  Looking round he realised it was Zeshaun who was pointing.  Alan followed the direction of where he was pointing to and spotted a staircase.  He smiled from beneath his helmet and nodded.  Alan suddenly became aware of a faint noise.  Alan turned round to try to locate it he suddenly noticed that the Gungans had entered their room.  Oh hell he thought as he brought his weapon to bear on them.

Alan fired a shot, but in his groggy state the shot went wild.  His eyes widened in surprise as the Gungans began firing back but not at the squad but more at themselves.  What the devil he thought as he suddenly realised that without the aid of thermal imaging, they were blind as a bat.  Alan smiled and was about to get upstairs when he noticed Njall running towards the Gungans.  Damn newbie, what the hell is he doing thought Alan.

Alan was about to go after him when he realised what Njall was doing.  He watched as Njall tackled one of the Gungans to the ground and began dragging him back to the squad.  Zeshaun was quickly to Njall’s aid and they dragged the Gungans upstairs.  Alan glanced behind him and noticed that none of the Gungans had survived bar this one. 

“Bind him” said Alan as they got upstairs.

Renji was soon putting the Gungan in a chair and tying him up securely.  He slapped the Gungan several times before the Gungan groggily opened its eyes and took in its surroundings.

“Talk” said Alan.

The Gungan looked around, uncertain of what to do.  Its eyes widened more when it saw even more Imperials walk up the stairs.  Alan glanced round and noticed that Lucky’s group had arrived.

“Nice to see you” said Alan.

“You too” replied Lucky, “what have we got here?”

“Njall very kindly bagged us a Gungan and now we are going to find out what the hell is going on around here”.

“You heard him, talk!” shouted Zeshaun.

“Yousa bombad, yousa being in bad trouble” said the Gungan, either picking up some courage or talking because of how fearful he was bound to the chair and surrounded by a squad of Imperials.

Alan was about to question him further when a metallic noise emanated around the floor.  What was that he thought to himself.

“Njall, Leon, go check that out” said Lucky.

“Roger that” they both replied.

Alan watched them leave and hoped they would be ok.  They had held up admirably so far but he was certain this mission was far from over.

“Explain yourself, what did you mean by bad trouble” said Alan.

“Wesa building a grander army, wesa needin credits for dat” said the Gungan.

What is he babbling about thought Alan as he began to wonder whether he was ever going to get any information out of this Gungan.

“What does that have to do with us?” asked Lucky, seeing Alan’s exasperated look.

“Yousa going to get us credits.  Wesa give bombad information to yousa informant.  Wesa waitin for yousa.  Wesa sell you to Rebels.  Wesa get mucha credits for yousa” stated the Gungan.

Alan didn’t like the sound of where this was going.  Njall and Leon returned and Alan was thankful to see them after hearing what the Gungan had told them.

“Report” said Lucky.

“The staircases have been sealed shut by some form of mechanical door.  We tried to open it but it is sealed tight and there isn’t any form of control to open it” said Njall.

“Great, we walked right into their trap” said Requiem.

“Well let’s figure a way to get out of this trap then” replied Alan.

Zeshaun nearly burst out laughing when he heard the gungans talk but his will to laugh died when he heard the gungan talk about a trap. Damn ,that doesn't sound good. Zeshaun reloaded his rifle and held it closer to his body searching the room for any signs of rebels. He saw another staircase leading up, probably leading to the third floor.

Lucky suggested that they keep moving and try to find a way out of the building, even if they had to climb out a window. Alan decided that no more useful information could be gotten from the gungan and brought it to a corner of the room and shot it once, immediately killing it.

Zeshaun followed closely behind Lucky as she moved up the stairs, making sure they didn't walk into anything dangerous. They reached the third floor and it seemed as quiet, if not quieter, than the other two floors. What are they waiting for. Zeshaun shifted his rifle in his hands nervously, waiting for the rebels to jump out of the closets and kill them.

Lucky discovered a window large enough for them to fit out of. She took out her grappling hook and hitched it onto the window sill. She signaled for people to start moving out. Njall, and Xal were the first two to go, then Lucky herself went down just to be sure there was no danger down there.

As Renji was half-way down and Zeshaun was about to put his foot out, a sudden bang from the floor below made Zeshaun jump and nearly fall out the window. He turned his head and saw the tip of a gun coming up from below the staircase. Looks like we've been found.

Zeshaun put his foot back into the room, grabbed his rifle, and quickly rolled behind a small desk. When he saw the first rebel soldier step out from the stairwell he shot, causing the soldier to fall backwards and possible slow down the others.

"What's going on back there." Lucky's voice came in over the commlink.

"The rebs seem to have caught up with us." Zeshaun explained.

"Hold on, I'm coming back up there." Lucky said.

Zeshaun told her to stay down, they would follow as soon as they could. Zeshaun looked toward Alan, who looked toward Requiem, they simultaneously decided to stay and try to fight it out. Rebels can't be too hard.

Alan held up his hand revealing a grenade. He angled it perfectly so it bounced off the wall and rolled into the stairwell. A shuffle of feet could be heard before the loud explosion, followed by the screams of a few, probably dead, soldiers.

Zeshaun waited, for the first sign of the survivors of the blast. Alan signaled for him to move up and check it out. Zeshaun slowly crept up to the stairwell and peeked down, the smoke was still making the air a little hazy and Zeshaun couldn't see too clearly.

It seemed a few bodies lay piled at the bottom of the stairs but no others were there. Weird, this can't be ll that they sent Zeshaun heard the hiss of a door opening and he heard the feet leave the room Damn

He hurried back to Alan "They're going outside."

Alan sent a warning to Lucky and the others down there and they hurried over to the grapple, Alan jumped out first, shuffling down the rope as quickly as possilbe. Zeshaun went next, tempted to just jump and take the odds of breaking his legs. He stayed on the rope and he reached the ground just as the rebels turned the corner of the building. Zeshaun quickly dropped to the ground to avoid a few blaster bolts that flew over his head.

Through the smoke, Alan was surprised to find that no other rebels had attacked.  That seemed a bit too easy he thought to himself as he signalled to Zeshaun to go and investigate.

“They're going outside” said Zeshaun as he hurried back.

Alan immediately got on the comm. “Lucky, be advised that the rebels are heading towards your position”.

Without waiting for a reply he leapt out the window and moved down the rope.  He rappelled down quicker than he would’ve liked but he knew that an unknown amount of rebels were advancing on Lucky’s position and they may very well need assistance and soon.

He spotted Lucky and the rest of her group.  He moved quickly towards them and then noticed that Lucky was waving him down.  Without questioning her he dropped to the ground and took in his surroundings.  True enough a band of rebels were just rounding the corner of the building and opening fire.  Blaster bolts flew over his head as he grabbed both his blasters and returned fire.

Glancing over he spotted Zeshaun coming down the rope and knew that he would be a prime target for the rebels.  The rebels opened fire on Zeshaun.  Alan saw him ducking the bolts and without hesitation fired his blaster at the Rebel that had fired on Zeshaun.  The Rebel cried out and dropped instantly to the ground.  Soon all the squad were on the ground and Alan spotted that the Rebels were now joined by several Gungans.

The comm. sparked to life and Alan heard as one of the pilot’s voices came over the com but it was very crackly and Alan could only make out several words, “We…trouble…attack…need”.

The com suddenly went silent.  Alan glanced over to Lucky to see if she had received the same message as she acknowledged by nodding her head.  Returning fire Alan wondered whether there was still going to be a ship left for them to get off this godforsaken rock.

Zeshaun got up as soon as he saw Alan put a shot in the chest of the Rebel. He grabbed his rifle that he had lost when he dove for the ground and fired back at the now larger group of Rebels thanks to the reinforcement of the gungans. The strange silence on the comm made Zeshaun uneasy I better not get stuck in this swamp. Zeshaun thought.

He shot another Rebel sending him sprawling back into the group, leaving them open. The squad took out a few others while they were off balance, making the odds slightly fairer. Zeshaun took cover behind a tree and reloaded his rifle I wonder how much detail they put into this trap Zeshaun thought as his heart jumped when he saw a speeder with a mounted turret from around the corner of the building.

"Heavy stuff, coming around." Zeshaun warned the other squad members, who probably had not seen the speeder yet.

Zeshaun ran from the tree he was in so that the speeder couldn't get any shots at him. He fired into the crowd of Rebels to keep them off his back. Zeshaun leaned against the wall and caught his breath he switched from his rifle to his interchangeable combat system and made sure he had enough anti-tank shots. This should be fun

The speeder came floating around the corner and let a punishing volley of bolts fly, the whole squad dove for cover, many of them, including Zeshaun narrowly dodging the bolts. Zeshaun quickly got up and fired his anti-tank shot. It his the speeder in the side, unfortunately not doing much damage, and causing the speeder to concentrate it’s fire on Zeshaun’s position. He was pinned down behind a couple of trees, unable to even get his head up. Damn, I need some help. Zeshaun thought, feeling the splinters falling on his back.

Requiem winced as he saw Zeshaun stuck under cover as the speeder slowly sped towards the both of them. A constant clatter of debris to armor was heard as the tree's bark and splinters flew onto Zeshaun as he quivered in cover trying to not get decimated from the non-stop volley of the speeder in front of him. He slowly looked to the tree he was using in cover and smiled.

Requiem noticed that the tree was directly positioned to cross the same direction the oncoming speeder was. that's convenient . Requiem smiled as he than reached to his side and grabbed a small detonator pack and attached it around the tree. he slowly stepped back and than walked at least 15 feet away from the tree and made sure that the trunk would fall over the path.

Requiem slowly positioned his body into the fetal position and waited as he than activated the detonator and it exploded, he slowly got up and than looked tot he trunk as it began to sway back and forth. He smiled as it than crashed onto the path as the gungan on the speeder tried to stop only to slam his entire vehicle into it in a clatter of shrapnel and spark's. that worked

" That worked to some extent, " Requiem said while he brushed off the many debris from his armor.

" Yes it did " Zeshaun said as he gave him a warm smile.

Requiem and Zeshaun's expressions changed back to chaos as they than turned around with the rest of the squad to see a large troop of rebel's marching up the path, Lucky signaled tot he squad and she directed her hand down. The squad followed suit and than placed their bodies in the foliage and the shrubbery around them making sure that the rebel's could not see them.

Requiem snickered to himself as he than grabbed a small piece of moss from the forest floor and than placed it diagonally across his helmet for extra camouflage. this is getting better and better . He than slowly turned around to hear trampling coming up from their right flank and from their front. Lucky heard the crunch of the ground floor and than directed the squad to move further down the dirt path and pass the group of rebels.

Requiem winced as his joint's began to get tired from the constant crouch his body was in as they trudged further on down the path keeping as close as they could without being noticed by the many rebel's than wandered by at awkward points in time. God this is getting tiring . Lucky slowly stopped ahead and stretched out her left arm in a halting position.

Requiem slowly nodded and waited as she than sent her left arm back to her side and than use her 1st and 2nd finger on her right hand and than directed them towards the path. Requiem unable to see the rest of the squad while they trudged on the forest path laughed as he saw the motley crew that squandered in front of him.
He had seen that the constant trudging through the swamp lands of Rori, the armor had than turned the same tint as the foliage that surrounded them. this is convenient

" Well, two good things came out of that situation. " Lucky said as she slowly swept her hand towards her armor and than stopped knowing that this was the best camouflage that they could have for there situation.

" Hmph, so where to ? " Zeshaun asked as he than slowly scratched his head from under his helmet.

" Well, we have to stay away from the rebels to make sure we're not turned into slaves. Maybe even find the owner of this 'army' they're building and get rid of him and it. " Alan said as he replied.

The squad slowly nodded as they continued to trod down the path staying as close as they could to the forest to stay hidden from pursuers. Requiem waited as the path ended and the squad rounded out only to stand before a 2 large row's of tents and what looked like a large temporary rebel base which harbored on the planet Naboo's moon Rori.

" Well, this is new " Njall said as he scratched his head.

" Your telling me " Requiem said as he stared in awe at the base camp

Alan looked over at the rows of tents and realised that the squad was significantly outnumbered.  .  Well this doesn't look good thought Alan.  He spotted several shuttles and realised that they were short range shuttles.  Now where did they come from pondered Alan as he wondered whether the Rebels had established a proper base on Naboo or whether there was a Rebel ship in orbit now.  Alan quickly crawled over to where Lucky was.

"We can't take all of them on" whispered Alan.

"Agreed, we need to get back to the ship and call in reinforcements" replied Lucky.

Alan nodded as he waved the squad to follow after Lucky who had already started to crawl away from the tents and head in the direction of the ship.

"We're not going to attack?" queried Zeshaun as he stopped beside Alan.

"We wouldn't last very long against that force" replied Alan, "now get moving".

Zeshaun knew in his mind that Lucky's decision was the right one.  Alan also preferred to go down and to kick some Rebel ass but he also did not want to die needlessly.

The squad crawled through the foliage until Lucky felt secure in the knowledge that they were well outside the rebels range.  Once satisfied, she stood up and the squad, following suit started to walk cautiously through the forest.  Everyone was on high alert, mostly from the Gungans who knew this terrain all too well.

Lucky and the squad finally emerged into a clearing where the shuttle had landed.  Alan's eyes opened wide and he thought to himself this isn't good.  Before them was a blackened crater with parts of metal strewn across the place.

"This is good" commented Njall.

"How are we going to get off this rock now?" asked Leon.

Alan looked over at Lucky who seemed to be taking everything into consideration.

"Guys, settle down" said Alan, giving Lucky time to formulate a plan.  He hoped that she had a plan.

"Ok, listen up guys" said Lucky, "there's only one way to get off this rock".

Everyone huddled close to Lucky to hear what the strategy was going to be.

"We have to go back to the rebel base and steal one of those shuttles" said Lucky.

"But those are short range shuttles" said Requiem, "they will never get us back to Tadath".

"I realise that" commented Lucky, "but they will get us to Naboo where we can acquire a ship to get us back to Tadath".

"Whilst we're there, we can scout around to see if the Rebels do have a permanent base of operations" commented Alan.

"Yeah, and bring it down if we can" said Zeshaun.

"This is all well and good" said Njall, "but how are we going to steal one of those shuttles without being killed and say we do steal a shuttle, what will prevent them from using their other shuttles to gun us down once we take off?"

Alan smiled at Zeshaun's comment but thought Njall's query was a very good and valid one.

"Right, this is the plan" said Lucky, "we will slip into the base at nightfall, we will set explosives up on the other shuttles and steal the last one.  Once we are airborne, we can use the ships blaster cannons to decimate the rebel base and then go to Naboo" said Lucky.

"I like that plan" said Alan.

"Questions?" asked Lucky.

Alan glanced around at the squad to see if there were any other questions and was surprised to find that none came forward although he realised that Lucky had provided a very detailed and comprehensive plan. 

Now all we need to do is wait for nightfall thought Alan and hope for some luck.

Requiem slowly dropped himself down onto his knee's and than lied his back against the tree trunk behind him. He than rested his head against it and than placed his hand over his helmet as he lied to rest and tried to take a small rest before they began to do their mission. Requiem slowly grimaced as he heard a low roar from the forest around him. He looked to the squad member's around him and than sat up.

He than scrambled up from his spot and than began to climb the large tree trunk that towered behind him menacingly, Requiem slowly thought of why he had chosen to climb the tree to stay away from whatever was on the forest ground but he knew that it was the safest place to choose from. He than slowly grasped a small point on the tree and pulled.

Requiem began to climb up the tree and continued to grab foot hold's along the way as they passed. Requiem was at least 20 feet off the ground when the left hand hold ripped off the tree, he dangled in his place for a matter of second's until he than reached to his torso.

Requiem grabbed onto his grapple and than slowly clamped it into his hand as he than began to spin it counter-clockwise over his head to get it high enough to grab onto a thick branch he could harbor on. Requiem slowly frowned as he than looked to the horizon as he noticed the sun was going down how long have i been up here ?? .

" REQUIEM ! " Lucky said as she saw him escalating the large tree.

" Yes ?? i'm kind of busy " Requiem said trying to hide the fright in his voice.

" We're going to the base in 5 minute's, but uh you take your time. " Lucky said with a short snicker.

Requiem face changed to anger as he heard laughing in the distance as they than walked off back towards the base camp. Requiem slowly swung his grapple and smiled as it hit a tree not too far away. Requiem slowly jumped off the tree and swung himself this could be a good hobby for me . He than smiled as he than swung in front of his squad, he than let go and flew towards the forest floor and began to roll.

He than stopped himself and than got up brushing off the excess twig's and than making sure the camouflage that resided on his body was still their. Requiem slowly hunched over and grabbed his back as a sudden pain seared through his spine. hurt a little bit more than I thought He than turned around to see the squad stationery and looking at him.

" What ? " Requiem said as he than gave them a curious look, trying to hide the pain that resided in his body.

" Nothing " Alan replied as he than shook his head.

The rest of the squad stopped near the edge of the rebel base and than noticed that their were 8 tent's stationed outside each and not that large in diameter. Requiem slowly rubbed his chin as he than noticed that he had enough explosive's equipment to destroy each before takeoff.

" I have an idea  " Requiem said as he than smiled.

" Continue " Lucky said as they than snuck onto the grounds.

Requiem slowly stopped in front of one of the tent's that was on the right side of the small lane. " I have enough explosive's to plant a detonator on each tent and you don't have to waste time destroying each when we're in the air ".

Requiem looked around his squad as they than gave him a curious look they than nodded and than directed him to begin. Requiem watched as Lucky and the rest of the squad hurried over to the main Rebel bay to grab a shuttle and destroy the rest.

Requiem smiled as he than grabbed a small detonator pack and than placed it on the side of the first tent. He than continued down each lane and made extra precaution if he heard any noises coming from inside each.

Zeshaun was helping destroy the other shuttles in the hangar, as Lucky prepared the shuttle that they would be using. This is working well Zeshaun thought seeing Requiem return without a scratch. Zeshaun cut another wire, and then moved on to the next shuttle, opening up a couple of panels and starting to snip at the wires. Zeshaun still had his rifle and it was making the constant shifting uncomfortable as he crawled from one spot to another under the shuttle.

A chorus of voices could be heard in the distance, Zeshaun knew it wasn't anyone in the squad and he immediately got up from beneath the shuttle to see what was happening. It seemed a group of Rebel's were coming over to the hangar, all suited up for combat and escorted by a pilot. That can't be good.

The rest of the squad had noticed it as well and they were contemplating what they should do. If they made a run for it now, the rebels could still follow them since all the shuttles had not been disabled quite yet, but if they stayed and fought, it would most likely attract the attention of every other Rebel at the camp.

The squad stayed hidden behind crates, and shuttles trying to avoid being seen by the Rebels. Zeshaun stayed hidden underneath the shuttle that he had been working on and was slowly trying to make his way to the crates near the back wall when his foot his a wrench and sent it clattering out from underneath the shuttle.

Zeshaun quickly crawled out and grabbed his rifle, firing a shot at the Rebel soldiers who had started to walk over to investigate.

"Sorry guys." Zeshaun said into the comm.

the rest of the squad suddenly popped up wrecking havoc on the Rebel soldiers who didn't get to even fire a shot. The sudden shuffle of feet and the yell of commands filled the air, Looks like they heard  Zeshaun found a switch to close the hangar doors.

Before they were closed all the way, the Rebel soldiers started to fire as they came running down the road. The squad stood behind the door, returning fire, just enough to keep them at bay. Luckily the door closed before any of the Rebels managed to make it inside.

"Well, now we're stuck" Requiem said.

They were, very stuck. If they opened the hangar door, they would let in a sea of Rebel troops ready to tear the Paladin's apart.  They went back to disabling shuttles, more as a  thing to do than an actual important task, now that it seemed unlikely that they would get up in the air.

Lucky sat at the edge of their prepared shuttle, thinking over some ideas. Alan sat with her and they both talked for a while before calling everyone over.

"Okay guys, here's our plan." Lucky said.

The squad would all get inside the shuttle, hopefully the Rebels won't know which one they are hiding in and they will start searching. When the doors fully open, the squad will then launch into air, and try to get some reinforcements.

They all packed into the one shuttle, except Alan who was the designated door opener. He was standing by the button already, waiting for the signal. When everyone was inside the shuttle, with enough room for Alan to hop in quickly, he punched the button. The hangar doors slowly started to slide open, a slow trickle of Rebels started pouring into the hangar.

At first they seemed confused with the disappearance of the Paladin's but soon enough they thought of searching the shuttles. Lucky suddenly fired up the engines and Zeshaun could hear some of the shouts and orders that were being given by the Rebels above the dull roar of the engines. Here goes nothing
