  DD's relaxation trip
May 8, 2005 2:36:39 PM    View the profile of Kairo 
  What can this be about? Kairo thought as he rolled out of bed to the sound of his door signaler going off. "I'm coming." Kairo growled at the incessant beeping. Hitting the doors controls, Kairo watched as a small technician entered his view.

  "Sorry to wake you, but I have a message for you from Major Rizzit." the technician said in a squeaky voice, holding out a small datapad.

  "mhm." Kairo mumbled in response, taking the datapad and waving the messenger away. Stepping back into his room and activating the datapad, he saw a small paragraph appear.

Hello Kairo. I hope you get this in time. Meet me in my office at nine hundred hours. This is important so try not to be late. Kairo finished reading. Checking his chronometer, Kairo realized he had twenty minutes to get there. Walking across his room, Kairo entered his refresher unit. After four minutes, Kairo stepped back out, went over to his closet, pulled out one of his uniforms, got dressed, picked up his datapad, and left his room. After another seven minutes, he was finally nearing Rizzit's office. As he approached the doors, he saw Raziel leave the office. Saluting Raziel as he passed by, Kairo walked over to the door and pressed the signal button.

  "Come in." Rizzit's voice said through the door's intercom. As the door slid open, Kairo saw Rizzit sitting at his desk looking over a few datapads. "Welcome. Glad to see you made it. Sit down. I have a mission you are going to be happy to take."

.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  . One Hour Later .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .

  Kairo left Rizzit's office with a slight skip in his step and a smile on his face. At least it was some good news this time. A few minutes later, Kairo entered the communications section. Another technician walked over to him.

  "How may I help you?" he asked.

  "I would like to send a message to all the members of DarkDragoons." Kairo stated.

  "Do you have a copy of the message you would like us to send to them?" the technician asked in a prissy tone.

  "Just get out of the way so I can get to a message station." Kairo said with an annoyed tone. The technician motioned to an empty area and walked back to the main station he had been working at. Sitting down at the station, Kairo turned it on and put his datapad in a pocket. Opening a new file on the station, Kairo wrote a short message that would be sent to the rest of the DarkDragoons squad, telling them to meet him in the briefing room at fourteen hundred hours. He also wrote another, short message to TK, the new ASL of DarkDragoons, to meet Kairo in Kairo's office at twelve hundred hours. Leaving the communications area, Kairo walked back to his room.

  Once he arrived, Kairo pulled out his datapad again and sat down at his small desk. Looks like we finally earned ourselves a vacation.

.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  . Kairo's Office 1200 .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  . 

  "It's open." Kairo said, watching TK as he entered the room. Keeping a stern expression on his face, he said, "I have something very important to discuss with you. We have been assigned another mission."

  "I've come back to active duty from being an advisor, and you're telling me we are already going on a mission?" TK asked, as he sat down in one of the room's chairs.

  "Yes. Don't worry, I think you will find that this is the type of mission you were born for." Kairo responded, a slight grin appearing on his face.

  Tk gave him a strange look and asked, "What's going on?"

.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  . DD briefing room 1400 .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .

  Kairo was sitting at the end of the table with TK sitting to his right. They were both wearing expressions of foreboding. The rest of the squad had filed in slowly. Sam, Giovanni, and Zafo had arrived with a look of tiredness on their faces, but that was to be expected. They had all been on the last three consecutive missions DD had been sent on. Squall and Arrow walked in with a hint of weariness. The only one that seemed excited to be going in the DarkDragoons briefing room was Shakey, the newest member to the squad and fresh from drill. "I suppose you are all wondering why we are here. It has come to our attention that one of our high security prisons might be in danger. The planet it is based on is Akrit'tar. It is a planet full of lifeless wastes, swamps and the like. We will be going there to search through the smelly muck and try to find where this threat's base is on the planet. Here is a description of the planet for you." Kairo finished, handing out a datapad to everyone in the room.

  "You have got to be kidding us. This says the atmosphere consists of trace amounts of methane?" Giovanni asked.

  "Unfortunately, yes. We will be given breath masks, but I am told that you will still be able to smell the gas. Plus the muck on the planets surface is said to seap through most kinds of armor, so you will probably have to take multiple showers after we leave the planet. Any other questions?" Kairo finished, while trying to suppress the urge to laugh. Everyone's face showed signs of loathing, others abject horror. Man TK. This is so mean. What a sadistic mind you have for this type of stuff.

  "I have a question." Arrowcaan stated. "How long until we leave?" 

"We will be leaving in five hours. This is a top secret mission, so we want to leave as soon as possible. Since this is a high security mission, only a few people know of where we will be. Because of that, if we get lose communications while on that planet, it may take a week for someone to actually come and get us." Kairo explained, while still trying to not burst out laughing. Squall's, Sam's, and Zafo's faces looked like they were going to be sick. Wondering why Shakey hadn't burst out by now with a vehement response, Kairo glanced in her direction. "Is anything the matter Shakey?"

  "No sir, I'm fine." She stated, keeping her expression blank. "I am here to serve the vast empire. Whatever the high command thinks is important for us to do I will gladly follow."

  That isn't like her at all. I wonder if she figured it out already, or if TK told her. Kairo thought and turned his head to look at TK who had his head tilted to the ceiling, as if he were suddenly interesting in the architecture of the room.

  "How can you say that?" Gio asked. "There sending us to a planet that will smell like... like..."

  A few arguments broke out, as certain members of the DarkDragoons finally let their voices be heard. "Ok! Ok! Stop all the fighting." Kairo interrupted. Giovanni, Sam, Squall, and Shakey stopped their bickering and turned to look at him. Arrow and Zafo brought their attention back from the deep recesses of their minds, where they had been trying to block out reality. "I've let Tk have his little joke. It is time to tell you where we will really be going."

  "Soooo, were not going to the planet of gas?" Arrow asked.

  "No, that was all something TK cooked up. He is the chef around here. You can yell at him later," Kairo answered.

  "Awww man. It was just getting good." Tk complained. Gio, Sam, and Squall picked up the fake mission datapads and threw them at TK. Ducking his head, he said, "Ok, OK. So maybe it wasn't that funny. But you should have seen your faces."
 
  "That's enough. You can beat TK later." Kairo laughed, looking at TK as he came out from under the table. "This is actually some good news. Since we have been on three types of mission in the past month, with little or no brake in between them, we have been given some leave. We're going on vacation to the planet Cepany. but.." He was cut short by the cheers that emanated from everyone in the room. A few minutes later they had all settled down. "Ok. There is a little catch. We will be doing some training while we are there. Even though we have been on some missions together, there are some new people who have joined and we should try to learn how to best use our differences. Each morning or night while we are there, we will be doing some sort of training activity. Whether it be weapons training, vehicle usage, or just terrain negotiation, we should all learn each others weaknesses and strengths. But that is only part of the time. We will mostly be relaxing and spend some true r&r time. Plus, Rizzit is apparently joining us.We will be using his personal yacht to get us there. We will be leaving in six hours at eighteen hundred hours. Get packed and make sure you get all the gear you want for when we're training and any vacationing goods you need. Meet us in the hanger bay. See you then."

(OOC Time for some fun. Nothing explicit on here, but have fun with this. It is a great place for character development also. )

Giovanni, slowly got up from his seat and looked around with a smile. If it werent for the soreness all over his body he'd run full speed back to his room and start packing. He was the first to leave the briefing room, right before Zafo, who was followed by Squall and the rest of the Dragoons.

He was running a mental checklist of all the things he'd need to pack for the trip when Squall tapped his shoulder.

"So... Gio..." Squall inquired with a smirk on his face.

Giovanni acted as if he hadnt heard him, looking down at an imaginary datapad and compiling a list of equipment and supplies.

Squall walked beside him, as if anticipating an answer.

Giovanni sighed. "Yes, I'll bring the Brandy. Happy?"

"You have no idea." said Squall with a big smile on his face.

Giovanni arrived in his room and locked the door. He reached a nine-digit panel on the wall and punched in a five-number combination. 95207

A door slid open, revealing Giovanni's equipment, and a few other things that would be considered contraband. Among these things were several bottles of various kinds of liquor, a modified blaster, a few distasteful magazines, and a few other things he had collected in his time with the Dragoons.

He picked up his armor and laid it on the ground next to his bed. He picked up his blaster rifle in one hand, and a sniper rifle in the other and laid both on either side of the stormtrooper armor. It's about time i shot off a few rounds of this slugthrower....

He looked at a datapad laying on his bed. T-Minus 5 hours and 15 minutes.

Giovanni sighed and made his way out, making sure to lockdown his "closet of wonders". He took a left down the corridor and walked to the bar.

"I gotta kill 5 hours one way or another..." he told himself.

Shakey had slowly gotten up and walked towards her room.She was slightly miffed by the fact that there wasn't a real mission.She had recieved the order and had all but ran to the briefing room.She had only slightly been bothered by the fact that they were 'going to a stinky gas planet'.Now she had to pack,and with five hours to do it in she planned on having a nap.

She reached her room and opened the door.She normaly had it open save at night.She adjusted her eyes to red to see through the incesence that she was always burning.She walked over to her closet and opened it.She grabbed her new female stormtrooper gear just in case.She also grabbed her new gear that was custom made.It was an almost skin tight robe that had a shining silver breast plate and metal gaurds attachted to the material running all the way down the leggings.She packed a few unneccesary things,like her Rancor's collar and her pink bath robe.She looked at the clock,still 0430 minutes to go.Time for a nap.

"A chance to relax..." Zafo thought to himself as he strolled into his quarters. He liked the idea of going for some time to simply relax and train, for once not having to worry about a streak of intensified light hitting him and ending his life.

Going through his rather small arsenal, Zafo picked out his favorite weapons;  a slugthrower sniper, E-11 Marksman Ed., A280 rifle, ESPO flame carbine and sentimental pistol.  It seemed like a lot of weapons to be taking on what was suppose to be a vacation.

"Have some fun with all of em!" was Zafo's half reasonable excuse to himself.  The more Zafo went through his stuff, the more he wanted to pack. Knowing he didn't have to bear all this stuff on his shoulders for days on end, made it easy for him to go overboard.

He walked over to his bedside table and threw off the sheet, revealing the massive suitcase he had brought with him when he originally joined the Vast Empire. It was huge. All the weapons and ammunition Zafo was brining along only took up a small portion of its holding space. He walked over to his closet and looked at his different suits of armor sitting before him. Looking from his suitcase to his selection, he decided to bring his 3 favorites; Standard Armor, 210 personal armor and ARC armor. He doubted he would use all of them, but liked brining them all just incase.

After packing all his personal items, Zafo left the Dragoons lounge, dragging his massive, wheeled suitcase behind him. Baffled looks followed him as his squadmates wondered why he was dragging such a beast of a suitcase behind him. Even Zafo wondered why, but he wanted to make sure he didn't regret not brining anything.

Proceeding down the crowded hallways, Zafo made his way over to hangar. It was rather empty except for a few roaming technicians, looking for something to do.

"Can I help you, Corporal?" A tech asked, as he walked up to Zafo.

"Yeah" Zafo replied "I'd like my bike please" Zafo flashed a card to the tech, who took it and disappeared through a set of doors. A couple of minutes later he returned riding Zafo's Nightfalcon speeder. Zafo thanked the man as he harnessed his bag to his bike and cruised over to Rizzit's yacht. Nobody was around, so Zafo parked his speeder beside the the ship. He glanced at his watch and saw that there were still a little less than five hours to go.

Zafo left the hangar and headed towards one his favorite places, the bar. He was almost sure he would find at least one person he knew there. He took his shortcut to avoid all the main hallway traffic. Zafo entered the room squinting, so that his eyes would get used to the dimness quicker. As he walked towards the back he saw Giovanni sitting at a table. Zafo went on over and sat down.

"Zafo" Gio said as he nodded

"Ahoy" Zafo replied. He then raised his hand and waved a waiter over to the table.
"Some rum if you got" Zafo asked "If not...make it something tasty"

The waiter returned with Zafo's order. To his content, it was rum. He had taking a liking to it throughout his life.

"Quite the interesting vacation we'll be having eh?" Zafo started as he tilted his head back and took a long swig of his drink.

(OOC Good first posts guys. Keep it up. )

  As people started to file out of the briefing room to go pack and find something to do for the next five hours, Kairo turned toward TK and said, "I can't believe I let you talk me into playing that joke. Your sick man,"

  "Ah well. It was one of my more cruel jokes. I would have let them leave the room and start packing before I actually gave them the real mission though." TK replied as they made there way out of the room. "I'm going to go pack, have some good stuff I need to get. See ya..AGH." He was cut short by one more of the fake datapads being flung in his general direction. "I saw that Arrow." The last thing Kairo saw was TK running after the fleeting image of Arrow's giant wookie frame.

  Well that should be interesting. Oh well. I should get packing also. Kairo had to walk down a couple of halls to reach his room. As he passed some of the squad member's rooms, he saw Gio enter his room and shut the door. Walking farther down the hall, he finally reached his room. Entering his entry code number, Kairo opened the door and stepped inside. Closing the door behind him, he walked over to his closet. Looking inside, he pulled out two medium sized repulsar suitcases. Glad I spent the extra money on these things. It would be a pain to have to lug everything around. Placing the two suitcases on his bed, he opened them up and turned back to his closet.

  Kairo had a lot of new additions to his closet since he had won the imperial lottery, but he rarely wore a lot of things crammed inside. Kairo pulled out two sets of armor: his 210 personal armor and his regular storm trooper armor. Next he pulled out his dress uniform just incase he needed it. Then he pulled out a few regular clothes, a jumpsuit, and a grayish, black cloke. The cloke looked like it was ready to tear or was worthless and would only be worn by a person who had nothing of value. Kairo had wanted it that way though. It was actually a very durable cloke that he had had for the past four years. He had had it custom made so he would blend into a crowd, or cause people to not even give him a second glance. It was something he wore if he wanted to escape notice. It was able to be flipped over to reveal a pitch black underside that could be reversed to be the outside of the cloak. Placing all the clothes into one of the suitcases, he shut it and turned to his array of weapons he had inside a trunk under his bed.

  Unlocking it, Kairo pulled out his trusty E-11 and his newer E-11/F. Next he pulled out a couple of favorite blasters: a Kylon-3 Heavy Blaster Pistol, a DL-54 Automatic Blaster Pistol, a SSK-7 Heavy Blaster Pistol, and a hold blaster. He also pulled out a Mynock Q33 Silent Slugthower Pistol, a TI-47 Deathwind Slugthrower Sniper Rifle, a ESPO Flame Carbine, and a E-11/M Marksman Blaster Rifle. He hadn't had used them much before, but thought he might as well take them for fun.

  Turning away from his widespread array of weapons, he went to his desk to collect some of his other items. He picked up his Hush-98 Comlink, imagecaster, sabacc deck, and datapad. Throwing all of the items into the other suitcase, along with his weapons, Kairo closed it and put the two cases next to the door. Taking a look outside, Kairo saw Zafo At the end of the hall about to turn the corner, dragging a giant sized bag behind him. Wow, that is one huge bag. Of course I would look like that if i wasn't using two bags. I wonder what time it is. Checking his chronometer, he saw he had four hours and forty-five minutes until he had to be at the hanger bay. Might as well step into the refresher for a bit. Locking the door, Kairo moved over to his refresher unit, threw his clothes off, and stepped inside. This is going to be one heck of a trip. Can't wait to get to those beaches. The training should be fun also. I'll make sure we do some stuff we don't normally do a lot. Kairo felt the refresher sooth his muscles and let his mind wander over the many things the squad would be doing on the vacation.

  Arrowcaan looked at the time and realized it was still about 5 hours till they had to meet at the hangar bay.  Arrow sat around just looking, "Something to do, something to do," he thought quietly to himself as he looked around.

  "Oh I know I'll pack up my stuff so I'm ready when I gotta get ready to leave.  Arrowcaan walked over to his storage unit and but in his code to open it up.  "Lets see, I'll bring my E-11, a sporting pistol for some hunting maybe and hopefully, and finally my Stormtrooper armor and Camo armor for the hunting also.

  Arrowcaan put all that stuff in a duffel bag and went down to the bar to see if there was anybody from DarkDragoons to talk to.

  When Arrow arrived he noticed that Zafo and Giovanni had already beat him there.  Arrow walked up to say hello to them and order a drink. 

  "AHHH!," Arrow growled realizing that he forgot to turn his translator on so everyone could understand him.  Arrow turned on the translator and walked up to the bartender, "Can I get a glass of brandy on rocks, please."

  "Sure," the bartender replied.  Arrow started saying hello to Gio and Zafo and they got into a deep conversation about what they were going to do on the trip. 

  The bartender gave Arrow his drink and then he realized he forgot to pack a couple of things. 

  Arrowcaan quickly ran up to the lounge, got into his storage unit and grabbed some food ingredients for a special surprise on the trip. 

  Arrow ran back down to the bar sat down and started talking with Zafo and Gio.

  After awhile they got tired of hanging out in the bar and they decided to go back up to lounge and talk for awhile.  Their conversation ended with about 2 hours and 30 minutes left till they had to meet and then Shakey walked in to lounge and surprised them all.

Shakey had walked into the lounge wearing her pink bath robe and pink bunny slippers.She had her yellow eyes where closed and she was humming a tune.She wasn't completely bare underneath,she had her short robe with the armor attached but the pink robe hid that.She was humming a light tune to some long forgotten song that no one sung and she was twirling and dancing.She bent over to reach into a cabinate and quiet a few eyes followed her.She turned around to see the whole lounge looking at her in her pinky bath robe and pink bunny slippers and stopped humming.

"What?"She asked with a completely innocent girly look on her face.

To the 3 slightly drunk Dragoons, this was quite the sight. They knew the effects a thermal detonator had on a person's body. They had seen what a blaster bolt does to a human head from point blank range. They were well acquainted with the sights of dying men, pleading for mercy. This however, was something their training and experience did not prepare them for.

"Hey Shakey..." said Gio, in a slight slur, common for someone who had been on 3-4 missions with little to no rest.

"Im not sure if you've met my Comrades, Arrow and Zafo."
Arrow nodded. Zafo, meanwhile, sat in place with a dazed look on his face.

"You're welcome to join us." said Gio.

Shakey smiled, nodded to arrow and zafo, and left the bar.
Arrow looked over at Gio with a puzzled look on his face.

"I think I've had enough," said Arrow. "Im a little weirded out..."

"Nonsense!", yelled Zafo. He gave arrow a hearty slap on the back, and continued to drain his glass.

That man sure loves his alcohol, thought Gio. No wonder we get along so well...

Giovanni stretched out his arms and took a glance at the time.

The clocks struck 0500.

"Two hours left... Think maybe we should sober up a bit? Im sure Rizzit has plenty of free booze on his yacht anyhow."

"I think i'll retire. I gotta go punk a techy into carrying my stuff over into the yacht and maybe buy a few new things for the trip." Giovanni laid some credits on the table. Standing up took a little more effort than he'd expected.

The Lcpl waved, and exited the lounge. Next stop, the Imperial Center Store.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .30 min. later . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Satisfied like only a drunk man who has just spent a huge amount of credits on things ranging from guns, to a holochess table, to contraceptives, Giovanni walked back to his room. He loaded all his numerous new gadgets into a duffel bag, and undressed to go into the refresher unit.

I reek of alcohol, he thought to himself, with eyes half closed.

He emerged 5 minutes later feeling slightly better. He combed his hair and put on his gray uniform slacks, and black undershirt. His newly polished boots lay at one side of his bed, and he put those on as well.

As Giovanni walked out he noticed it was only 35 minutes till they left, so he grabbed his bags and made his way to the hangar.

He was the first there, so he stashed his bags and patiently waited, his mind adrift in the crystal clear waters of Cepany.

I love this job...

"Hmm, thirty five minutes to go. What should I bring?" TK asked himself as he assdanced around his room.

He walked up to his oversized footlocker and entered his nine digit code.

"Ladidadida 123 lalala 456 tralala 798" TK sung as he punched in his codes.

He opened up the footlocker and started to organise the items that he wanted to bring. At first he picked up his uniforms and started to fold them neatly and hung them neatly in his uniform case. He then took out his rapid recipe food management system, Q2s5 Hold-out Scout Blaster Pistol and his trusty Enforcer heavy slugthrower pistol. He looked around his rather empty room and attempted to think of what to bring next.

"Arrr! What else should I bring?" TK asked himself.

TK looked around the room again and stared at the picture of the squad which hanged on the wall. TK stared at it  again and again in an attempt to remind himself about something.

"Aaah crap! I forget to get my armour from HQ!" TK loudly complained as he slapped himself in the face.

TK looked at his watched and realised that time has gone by quickly and that there was only fifteen minutes to go.

"Oh well, no time to get that now looks like my clone trooper armours would have to make do" TK said as he put on his grey duty uniform.

TK holstered his Enforcer into his tactical thigh holster and holstered his scout blaster into the side of his left boot. He looked around his room once more and picked up his uniform case filled with his uniforms and armours and rapid recipe food management system and walked to the hangar.

Rizzit got up early in the morning, and literally rolled out of his bed: landing on the floor with a loud THUD! This didn't hurt too much, due to the bed being so close to the ground (as was preferred), but it hurt nonetheless. After getting up off the floor with a good deal of trouble (Rizzit was not a morning person by any means.) he went to his closet to get his uniform for the day. After getting dressed, he went to go bother Raziel next door. After knocking on the open door to Raziel's quarters: Rizzit had hoped Raziel would wake up to come with him.

"Raz! Wake up! DD's going on vacation and we're invited! You wanna come?" Rizzit said in a half tired, half excited tone of voice.

A rather large pillow with a large, blue imperial logo came flying through the door and hit Rizzit in the face. Well, I guess he doesn't want to come.

"Well Raz: I'm taking the booze with me! I guess someone has to stay in charge anyways! You get to watch the platoon! You know where to reach me if trouble arises!"

Rizzit walked back to his office rather upset. Anyone on that floor could hear the pounding of footsteps on the wooden floor. Rizzit looked around the office and grabbed his green dufflebag, which was laying on the floor. This was all he needed, the rest of the equipment (including the booze) had been stored in the cargo hold the night before. Rizzit locked his office, and headed out the door.

It was a short walk over to the Army Barracks. It was even a shorter walk up one flight of stairs to the Dark Dragoons' floor. Rizzit arrived right on time at 07:00 as scheduled, only to find an entire squad of unorganized troopers scurrying around the barracks worrying about what to pack. Well, its a good thing I'm flying; otherwise who knows where we'd end up.... Rizzit pulled a chair out of Kairo's Office and decided to sit down in the middle of the mess, and see how long it would take them to 1. get organized and 2. notice he was there.

It took a long time, but after 30 minutes: they finally pulled together and finished packing. Rizzit was still unnoticed sitting in his chair. Kairo was the first to notice Rizzit once they all had their duffle bags.

"Oh hello Rizz. Just get here? You're a bit late " Kairo said teasingly.

"Actually no." Came Rizzit's cold reply. "I've been here since 7 as planned. I've been sitting here waiting to see how long you guys would take to either get your act togeter or notice me."

"Oh, I see." said Kairo sheepishly. So you saw---"

"Yes, I saw that unorganized mess." Said Rizzit sarcastically. "Now, if you're done running around: can we get going? The StarChaser is waiting outside."

  "Oh boy! Rest time!" Sam thought to himself as he packed is bags.
  "What should I bring," Sam said alloud, "Definitely a tropical tee."
  Sam rushed as he packed his bag, tossing in this and that. He then tossed in his favorate blaster and armor without giving any thought to the fact that he was going on a vacation.
  He polished his blaster before putting it into the case.
  After he was all done packing he headed towards the lounge. There he found the rest of his squad.
  "Hey, Zafo," Sam laughed, "How's it going?"
  "Pretty good there Sammy boy. Can't wait to get to the relaxingness," Zafo replied.
  Sam found himself a seat and grabbed the closest newspaper to him and began to read. He checked the weather on the planet they were headed to.
  "Looks like it is going to be nice weather there," Sam thought to himself, "I wonder if they've got some hunting there, if not I'll go anyhow...heh heh heehhh."
  Sam jumped up and rushed to his room. He grabbed his hunting knife and some hunting face paint and tossed into his bag. "Can't wait,"he thought to himself once again and then headed back to the lounge.

Squall trashed all of his empty bottles and attempted to make his way down the corridor following Gio and the rest of the Dragoons on his way down the hall.  He had drank way too much before the mission.

Gio looked like he had sobered up a bit, but with still on the other side.  Arrow and Zafo were still dealing with the after affects themselves.  Squall put his bags around his shoulders and stepped up into the StarChaser.  It looked very nice on the inside with tons of picture of Rizzit and his few poses with his new medals and other things he had earned while he was in the VE.  A protocol droid directed him into the storage area where he stashed his things neatly, grabbing only his E-11 to take along with him for the ride, and a few of his grenades, not to mention all the blaster packs.

After everyone had loaded their things into the StarChaser, Rizzit and Kairo came aboard and got it going.  The Ship sprang to life, and they were off.......

  Arrowcaan took his seat in the StarChaser looking around noticing that most everyone had already boarded themselves.  He noticed Squall admiring the pictures of Rizzit on all the walls.  Gio apparently had seated himself in the seat right next to Arrow.

  "So what's up," Arrow asked Gio who was still trying to sobber up from their rounds at the bar earlier.  "Oh, not much really, just wanting to hurry up and get going on this trip. I can't wait to get there," Gio replied.

  Arrow noticed that finally everyone had boarded the StarChaser and the door automatically close when everyone had taken their seats.  Rizzits voice came over the intercom, "Everyone if you please fasten you seatbealts till we are safely and steadily cruising through space.

  At that moment everyone fastened their seatbelts.  Rizzit's voice came back onto the intercom, "Once we have exited the atmosphere you are free to get up and admire the ship at your leisure, but I must ask you to be ready at any moment to take your seats if needed, thank you."

  Arrow heard the engines starting as Squall was taking his seat and fastening his seatbelt.  Everyone was looking out the windows as the ship slowly rose up above the ground.  Arrow had always been a little skittish at the whole flying idea so he was holding on for his life. 

  The ship had safely made it out of the Vast Empire Hangar Bay and was still slowly rising up to a safe altitude to get on its way to Cepany.  Once the ship had finally got high enough it sped up and headed out towards space. 

  There was some turbulence but once they exited the atmosphere everything calmed down again.  Arrow was finally calmed down as removed his seatbelt as did everyone else.

  Arrow stood up and walked over to TK and struck up a conversation. "So what are you gonna do on the trip," Arrowcaan said.  "I'm really not that sure what about you," said tK.  Arrow replied to him, "Well I'm planning on some hunting myself, gonna shoot me some womp rats.

  Arrow and TK's converstion ended there and Arrowcaan walked around looking at all the pictures and other stuff scattered around the walls of the ship.

  Before Kairo had boarded the yacht, he had brought around his 3-2-XR Speeder Bike, just in case he wanted to take it for a spin. Placing it inside the cargo hold, he had seen another speeder bike and had wondered whose it was. When he had boarded the starship, he had walked over to the storage unit and secured his bags into a hold. He was wearing his regular clothes, which were a pair of matching black pants and shirt. Pulling out his Kylon-3 and DL-54, he strapped on his thigh holsters and slid them into their slots. Walking back out of the cargo hold, he had walked to the cockpit to meet up with Rizzit and help with anything he could, but was mostly just wanting to watch. He hadn't had a lot of space travel in the most comfortable situations. When he was younger, he had stowed aboard cargo vessels to get where he wanted. As a stormtrooper, he was usually in a tight transport area, crammed in with the rest of the squad and their equipment. Now he was on a yacht and wanted to be in the cockpit, another place he rarely saw.

  Stepping through the door, Kairo saw Rizzit at the controls going through the pre-flight system check. "Hey Kairo. Take a seat. We're about to take off. Normally I don't let people in the cockpit, but I'm feeling nice. Just don't touch anything." Turning back to his controls, Rizzit pulled up the comsystem. "Everyone, please fasten you seatbealts till we are safely and steadily cruising through space. Once we have exited the atmosphere you are free to get up and admire the ship at your leisure, but I must ask you to be ready at any moment to take your seats if needed, thank you."

  As Rizzit finished the system check, he slowly lifted the yacht off the ground. Kairo sat down at one of the seats in the cockpit and buckled himself to the seat. Rizzit brought the The StarChaser out of the hanger and pushed the engines forward. A few minutes later, they were through the planets atmosphere. Kairo heard everyone in the back unbuckle and begin to roam around the ship. He followed suit, but remained in this seat. Another few minutes later, Rizzit had checked the star coordinates and sent them in to lightspeed. "Well we're off. This should be fun." Rizzit stated as he turned his seat around and stood.

  "Yeah, should be interesting to say the least. Even though I said we would be training a little bit everyday, I never said what type of training. I have a few fun things in store." Kairo informed.

  "Have fun with that." Rizzit said sarcastically. "I'll be relaxing. I know of a great casino on the planet." They continued to banter for awhile, then decided to check up on the rest of the DarkDragoons. Stepping through the door, Kairo saw Arrow roaming around the room, looking at each and every picture. Squall and Sam were talking, but soon seperated to go do some other task. Gio was laying down across a couch in a corner, still trying to ward off his small stupor. Shakey and TK were arguing about something near the storage area about Shakey putting her bag ontop of TK's bag.

  "Well I'm bored. Anyone up for some Sabacc?" Kairo asked, pulling out a deck.

  "You play Sabacc?" Arrow gruffed into his translator.

  "Yeah, I seam to have this natural nack for it, ever since my first game. Anyone?"

  (OOC As a side note, this is great place to bring out those characters. Since this is a vacation story, you can develop your characters in ways you wouldn't normally be able to. So pull them out. And don't make Kairo lose too much. I plan for him to be good. It has to do with his past. When I write some more of my bio and story, you'll understand. Might even mention more of it in this story.)

Shakey had boarded the vessel with her duffel slung over her shoulder.She hadn't anticipated it to be this small.She had traveled on everything from a Republic Cruiser to a private freighter.She had anticipated some huge ship.Well it hadn't been fair of her to judge Rizzit's ship that way.She had been around most of the galaxy in huge freight ships.She had looked around for a bit,examining the pictures and finding a place to put her bag.She had found one strangley humorous picture in which Rizzy had his back turned and had a 'kick me' sign written on his back.

She eventualy decided to just drop the duffel with the rest of the gear.She had turned to walk away when TK aproached her with that,'hey I have a higher rank that you',expression on his face.She found it quiet funny,and had told him so on a number of ocassions.He stopped a foot from her with that expression and pointed to her bag.

"Move your bag Shake,it's on mine."He said with a challenging tone.

"I don't see any harm in it.It only has my armor and extra clothing in it.I don't think your bag getting wrinkled is all that much of a problem."She responded in a serious tone.

"It's on my bag and thats the only reason you need.Now move it!"He said begging to raise his voice.

"No.It's not causing any harm and you are being rediculous.You should see your face."She said begging to crack up into a giggle fit.

His face had begun to turn a redish purple as their conversation elevated.She gave Kairo a quick two fingured salute before turning back to her fit with TK.She really did find these ocassional fights ammusing.

The ride was great, and it was good to get to know some of the other Squad mates.  Squall really hadn't done much bonding with anyone since he had come to the Dark Dragoons,  and he never really had any good friends in the Raiders.  But Squall did have one good friend in Dark Dragoons, Giovanni.

Giovanni and Squall kind of hooked up back in the prefect mission, thinking that they would get to run together some time in the mission, but it ended to quickly because Fury needed to be rescured.  They made sure this time though, that they would have a good time together.

Giovanni sat beside Squall as they cracked open some Brandy and drank it down.  Squall didn't really wanna get messed up before the vacation, but he knew it would be a fun time no matter what.  He planned to do some extra Combat Engineer training with some of the people in the Squad, and hopefully learn how to drive an At-St without crashing into something.  It was something that would take a long time.

Gio couldn't manuever an At-st worth shit either, so if they would have worked together on the previous mission, it would have been pretty messy.

Tk was sitting around with Arrowcaan and the others playing some Sabaac when they got into an argument about the game.  Tk stood up and shoved Arrow, then threw the game all around the ship.

"You just mad because I am winning," said Arrow

"No, you cheated," said Tk

"I cheated?"

"Yes, you cheated"

"Prove it"

"I don't have to"

"You cheated, yes you did"

"NO, I did not!," yelled Arrow as Kairo came storming in from the cockpit.

"You two settle down and get seperated from eachother.  Theres no use in this mindless bickering about a game.  This is suppose to be a vacation, not somewhere to start arguments and bickering with eachother.  If I hear another peep out of you two....." said Kairo

"Sorry," said Tk and Arrow, appoligizing to eachother at the same time.

As quickly as he had come down from his stupor, he was back up in it again. Giovanni was not known for turning down a nice bottle of Savareen Brandy.

"Good stuff," said Gio, holding the bottle to the light. He admired the rich, dark amber color, and took a whiff of the bottle. There were screams coming from the back of the ship, but he ingored them.

Giovanni got up from his seat and turned around to see what the ruckus was about. Judging from the aftermath, there was a dispute over a game of sabbac, a common scene at any bar or cantina. Tk and Arrow sat silently across the table from each other, and Kairo stood off to the side offering a lecture.

A sabbac card on the ground caught Giovanni's attention.

"Hmmm, Im no sabbac pro, but this here looks to me like a skifter," he said.

From the corner of his eye, Giovanni could see Arrow squirming in his seat. The Lcpl set the card down on the table, and waved goodbye as he stumbled back to his seat.
Behind his back he could hear TK yelling, and Arrow growling, and Kairo sighing in defeat.

Now... back to that brandy...

Mmmmm

The brandy went down Squall's throat, burning like gasoline, but the after affect really made him feel good.  His buddy Gio was sittting beside him in the back, doing the same old thing, getting smashed.

It really felt good to have a friend aboard after all of the things that Squall had been through lately.  Giovanni was always there to help and what not, and they would do some pretty cool things on the vacation.

After a while, everything got cooled down, but Gio and Squall were still pounding down drinks in the back.

"Ah man,  I don't even think I can get up," said Squall, trying to manuever out of the slouch that he had been sitting in for the past hour"

"Same here, I'm not feelin so good," said Gio, slurring his speech

The two sat there, in the amazing daze they had aquired from drinking so much alcohol.

(OOC Ok, enough of the drunken stupors. I'm getting us off this ship. )

  After Arrow had been found cheating, he had been frisked and stripped of all his skifters. He had been allowed to keep in the game, but was constantly being watched by the ominous figure of Shakey, incase he tried to pull another fast one. She was perfect for the job, because her eyes could see in many different spectrums, giving her the uncanny ability tosee skifters. Kairo had called her over and asked her to stand a short way from the table, to keep an eye out for any more cheating. TK, Arrow, Kairo, and Zafo, even though he was just playing for fun, had gone back to their game. TK was acting as the dealer. Kairo had won the next game after the event. He had been dealt the nine of sabres and the commander of flasks. Looking around the table, he saw Zafo's face light up. Man, he needs to learn how to bluff. Unfortunately, before anyone was able to place their cards in the interference field, the randomizer kicked in and there hands were quickly changed. Kairo now held the two of staves and the Evil One. Bringing his total to negative thirteen. Placing the Evil One inside the interference field, Kairo placed a bet of one hundred credits on the table. They had chosen to play in the lower digits, because not all of them had the money to back the higher bets up. TK placed his bets on the table, followed by Arrow. Zafo folded and walked off, saying, "Bad day."

  After they had all placed their bets, Kairo asked for another card. Lifting it up, he saw Endurance. Now he held a hand worth negative twenty-one. Waving his fingers, Kairo stood. TK gave himself a card, but didn't raise the bet. Arrow stayed with what he had and raised the bet another one hundred and twenty-five credits. Interesting. Either he is really stupid, or he has a good hand. Arrow isn't the type of man, or wookie, to waste his money. But I doubt he has as good a hand as I do. Kairo raised the bet one hundred and fifty credits. Tk folded, but Arrow stayed in the game. It was Arrow's turn and he called for the cards to be shown. Turning over his hand, he showed that he had the Ace of coins and the five of flasks. Smiling, Kairo flipped over his hand to show his negative twenty-one. "Sorry Arrow. That was close though." Pulling the money over to him, Kairo asked if anyone wanted to play another round.

  Tk nodded, and Arrow stated," I have to get my money back." Putting all the cards back into the deck, Tk shuffled it and dealt everyone their hands. Kairo was given the Queen of Air and Darkness and the Commander of Sabres, bringing his total to ten. It was Arrow's turn to start, and proceeded to bet one hundred fifty credits off the bat. Obvious, anyone? Kairo wondered while placing his bet to stay in the game and also adding to the Sabacc pot. Then the randomizer kicker in again, giving Kairo the two of Staves and the Ace of Flasks. Arrow suddenly let out a loud wookie roar. I can't tell if that was a happy sound or sad. Kairo thought, while covering his ears. Looking at the beaming wookie, Kairo decided to throw the game for two reasons: one, so Arrow could get his money back, since Kairo really didn't need it, and two, since Arrow was a wookie, Kairo really didn't feel like making him mad. Arrow then finished his turn. Placing the two of Staves inside the interference field, Kairo asked for another card. He was given the Star, giving him a bombing hand. He waved that he was going to stay. TK drew another card and raised the bet to one hundred and seventy-five credits. After they all bet, he then placed the Mistress of Staves inside the interference field.

  It was then Arrow's turn again. He placed one last bet down of two hundred credits, which TK and Kairo placed also, and then called for them to show their hands. Kairo started, showing that he had a total of zero in his hand. Arrow gave a chortling growl. TK then placed his hand on the table. He had the Mistress of Staves, the five of Flasks, and the five of coins, giving him a Pure Sabacc. As Arrow started to put his cards down, the randomizer kicked in again. Before their cards changed though, Kairo saw that he had had Endurance and the Evil One, which would have given Arrow Pure Sabacc also. As their cards finished randomizing, TK let a yelp. With the Mistress of Staves in the interference field, his two cards had changed to the Commander of Coins and the Three of Staves, sending him well over twenty-three. Arrow was still beaming though. His hand now showed the Ace of Coins and the eight of Flasks, giving him Pure Sabacc again.

  Arrow's happy face, quickly turned into a snarl as he looked down at Kairo's hand. Looking down himself, Kairo laughed. His Star had changed into the Idiot, combining with his two in the interference field to make two. But his Ace of Flasks had changed into the three of Sabres, giving him an Idiot's Array. Tk laughed also and asked, "What are the odds?" Arrow took a little harder. He jumped up from his seat and stormed off roaring into his translator, "I should have won. No one gets the Idiot's Array with a randomizer." Kairo pulled all of the credits toward him, including the Sabacc pot.

  The ended the game and Tk handed Kairo his sabacc deck back, asking Shakey, "Is that deck rigged gloweyes?"

  "Not as far as I can tell, and it's not gloweyes." Shakey stated and walked off for another area of the yacht.

  "Well that was an interesting game Kairo. I've never seen someone with as much dumb luck as you." Tk said.

  "To tell you the truth. I was trying to throw that last hand, so Arrow wouldn't rip my arms out of their sockets." Kairo said over his shoulder as he started to walk to the cockpit. Once he arrived, Kairo saw Rizzit sitting at the controls. "How much longer?"

  "Actually we are about to come out of lightspeed soon. Go tell the rest that we will be arriving soon if you would." Rizzit answered, turning back to his controls.

  Kairo walked through the yacht, informing anyone he saw as he went. He also told TK to find Arrow and tell him, just incase he was still angry. He had found everyone but Squall and Gio, and he only had one room left to check. As he walked in the overwhelming smell of liquor almost knocked him back out of the room. "You guys are plastered."

  "Yeeaaahh. Whha of it?" Gio slurred.

  "We'll be coming out of lightspeed soon. And we'll be landing about an hour after that. Get fixed up. I advise caf, that won't get rid of your alcohol level, but it might keep you on your feet until we get to the hotel we'll be staying at. And clean yourselves up. Wash your faces and stuff. See you once we land." Kairo left the room and headed back to the cockpit. Once he arrived, Rizzit motioned for him to take a seat.

  Turning on the intercom, Rizzit stated, "As you've all heard by now, we will be coming out of lightspeed. I am about to do so. You will have approximately fifty minutes until we land, so get ready and clean whatever messes you've made up." Clicking the com off, he brought the ship out of lightspeed. "Ah Cepany. Should be nice. Last thing I heard the natives have been nice recently."

  Fifteen minutes later, Rizzit got a call from the planets landing customs and landing pad registry. Another twenty minutes after that and they were on their way through the atmosphere and on their decent toward their designated landing zone.

(OOC Sorry about that, just wanted to get a little screwed up before the vacation, it is a time to have fun you know, even if I am an alchy)

Squall tried to grab his bags and toss them around his shoulders, but it was no use.  His motor skills were completely shot.  Giovanni was handling his liquor just a little bit better than Squall, but it looked no better.

"Squall," said Gio, "You a try as b-best as you can to wra-wrap your self arond my shoulder.  We might be able to make it off the StarChaser

"I'll try," Squall barely got the words out without passing out again.

Squall wrap his arm around Giovanni's shoulder, and they carried eachother and their things off of the ship.  They were mumbling different nonsense, slurring their words together as they stepped down the ramp.  Giovanni attempted to lift a finger up and piont at Squall while kind of laughing.

"I like this guy," said Gio, motioning for a high five ! from Squall, and gettin what he asked for.

"I like you too," said Squall, as they barely made it up the ramp into the hotel.

After the DD's got all of their room cards, it was official.  Squall would be bunking up with Gio, Arrow and Zafo would be together, Sam would be with Shakey and Marcus Nerva, and Rizzit would be with Kairo in the biggest room. They squad had rented out a whole floor of the hotel. It had a center chamber with all the rooms adjoining into the center chamber.

After making it to their room, each of the totally smashed Dragoons plomped onto their beds, and immediately passout, but not before Squall got done puking into the small ice bucket that someone had coincidently left there from the day before.  After puking a little bit more, Squall eventually faded away into unconciousness along with Gio.  They didn't even clean up like Kairo asked them too.

"Nothing like waking up in a beautiful five star hotel without worrying about loosing my life. Aaaahhh the thrills of vacation."

These were Zafo's first thoughts as he woke to warm Cepany sun hitting his face.
He lay there for only a minute before getting up, realizing exploring and enjoying this beautiful planet was much better than lying in bed. Zafo got dressed and decided to go for a little walk around the complex. His "adventure" was cut short; right when he got out of his room, he was in a circular lounge area which all room's doors opened into. Sitting there already was the whole squad with the exception of Squall and Gio.

"Hows for some breakfast?" TK asked as he pushed a bowl towards Zafo

Zafo made a face as TK handed him the bowl. "Nuna Soup?"
He wasn't looking forward to ingesting that rather disgusting "food" if it could even be called that.

"What are you Crazy!?" TK bursted out unexpectedly "Nuna Soup on Vacation!? Nooo Nooo Never!" His face was all red. He had seemed almost offended by Zafo's remark.

"Uhh...Sorry?" Zafo responded as he grabbed the bowl and took a seat. He whirled it around with his spoon a bit before ingesting a mouthful. Zafo's body was overcome with warmth as the soup went down. It had a very good taste; Slightly spicey, not too salty, almost close to perfect, not what he was expecting.

"Wow TK, very good" Zafo muttered as he swallowed another spoonful.

"See" TK said with a smirk "I can cook well, as long as I've got the time and ingredients."

Zafo finished his bowl and then went for a refill. It was a very satisfying breakfast.
"The perfect way to kick off vacation"

Nothing like something warm and spicy to kill your stupor., thought Gio.

Who would have thought? TK really could cook.

He finished his bowl. The warmth of the soup coupled with the warm Cespanian weather made him feel great.

"So...What are the plans for today?" inquired the rapidly sobering Lance Corporal.

He looked around the room for an answer, but saw only shrugs and confused looks. Except for one dragoon. Kairo.
No one else might have noticed, but a quick smile passed and disappeared from kairo's face. He was hiding something...He knew it.

Giovanni leaned back in his chair, still looking at Kairo. He complimented TK on his soup, and his bowl was filled to the brim oncemore.

"Im sure our Squad Leader will come up with something for us to do, right Kairo?", he said with a smile.

Kairo said nothing for a bit. He delayed his response on purpose.

"Oh, i'll think of something."

Kairo signalled TK to follow him to the cockpit as he ordered everyone to gather in the lounge room.

As the two executive members entered the cockpit, Kairo ordered TK to close the door.

"So, what's the plan?" TK asked.
"That's what we're trying to figure out, any suggestions?" Kairo replied.
"Well, hmm.... I'm still hungover, why don't we just rest for the day" TK suggested.
"No, we want to make this trip as beneficial as possible..." Kairo commented.
"Hmm, I have an idea!" TK informed.
"What is it?" Kairo asked.
"Why don't we give them some physical training, while we watch them from a vehicle?" TK suggested.
"Aha, good idea!" Kairo answered.

(OOC All done. )

  "Why don't we give them some physical training, while we watch them from a vehicle?" TK suggested.

  "Aha, good idea!" Kairo answered. "But not today. I actually did have something planned, but wanted to see if you could come up with something better. As enjoyable as sitting inside a cool vehicle and watching the rest of the squad toil sounds, we're going to have to go with what I had originally planned. Lets go back out to the lounge." Kairo and TK left the small conference room and entered the lounge that connected all of the DarkDragoons' rooms.

  "So what did you guys decide for us to do today?" Arrow growled as Tk and Kairo sat back down into the ring of chairs.

  "Seeing as how TK was no help, your going to have to go along with my original plan, even though it has some gaps in it." Kairo explained. "Anyways, let me get right into it. Even though we are on vacation, that is only part of the day. The rest of the day is devoted to training. Depending on what we are doing, I will either have us working at night or in the morning. In this training, we will be going over some of our rougher areas of expertise and also individual training. Today, we will be heading out to a old rock quarry. It is abandoned now, due to ancient worker protests. It provides ample area for us to train. The surrounding area also provides trees, a large lake, and a nice open plain. Rizzit has already had some of the larger, extra equipment we will be using already transfered there. We will be working on some individual training. Nothing to hard, since it is the first day, but Some of the tasks you might find physically challening while others could be a breaze. We will each have five tasks to complete. It doen't matter in which order, but you have to get them all done before I will allow you to leave the training area.

  "The first task, I am just saying first task so I can get this out easier, is to get across part of the lake in full stormtrooper armor. When you are in battle, you might be forced to enter an environment that is not suitable for your armor type, but you will not have to time to change armor in the middle of combat. This task will test yoru strength and indurance. Watch out for the fishes.

  "Task two will cover your proficiency with ranged weapons. There will be four different types of weapons in the quarry. You have to use two of them. There will also be ten targets that will pop up when you are using a certain types of weapon. You have to hit the targets before they disappear. It is basically like target practive, but amped up. The targets will move slightly as they go back into the ground. They will only surface twice. Don't worry though. Even if you don't get them all, you won't have to repeat the process. The targets will not be in the same area for each weapon. The distance and position will change for all of them. Your weapons are the always needed E-11, a T-21 repeating blaster rifle, a Kylon-3 heavy blaster, and just for fun an E-web. You are only allowed to use the E-web if you are combat engineer or heavy weapons specialist. Have fun with that.

  "The third task is a race. You have to make it through the forest part of the area. There is no set path, but there are four beacons that you have to go to inside the jungle, before you exit on the other side. Take whatever path you want, but watch out for predators. There shouldn't be anything to dangerous, but you will be given a E-11 and a melee weapon of your choice.

  "The fourth task is melee fighting. You will each have to fight a modified combat droid. It is cushioned to feel like a human and it will break with the same amount of force you would have to use on a human body. This droid is well programmed with multiple forms of hand to hand and melee weapon combat. It should pose quite a challenge. You are to beat the droid until it doesn't get back up from the ground. Use whatever force nescessary. For the two larger people in the group, namely Arrow and Shakey, you will be provided with a droid that will match your physical strength.

  "The fifth and final task is a test on you knowledge of vehicles. You will be given either a walker or speeder, your choice. You will be given a course that tests whichever vehicle you chose. For the At-Pt you will have to destory some small enemy drone and destory some small defenses. For the speederbike you will have to follow a course that will take you through the quary and jungle. Both are quite and hard and will challenge some of you more than others. I advise only using the walker if you have had past training or are quite familiar with the controls. You will be the only one piloting it. It is still your choice though.

  "That is all of the tasks. We will be leaving in fifteen minutes. Gather your stormtrooper armor and anything else you want to take. Meet back here in fifteen minutes. See you then." Kairo finished and caught his breath. Should be fun.

(OOC I only want you to write about your character taking two to three of the tasks, not all five. I repeat only three at the max. I also don't want to see you all doing the same thing and having your post be roughly the same as the last persons. Use some originality. There is plenty of room for interpretation. Have fun. Sorry this is late. Hope you got all of that. If you have any questions ask me when you see me or send me an e-mail. Good luck. )

As Arrow got his armor on and got ready for the first task as he looked out onto the lake, his stomach started to knot up. He had never been such a great swimmer, and with all this armor on it will be even harder.

"Now Kairo do we have to swim across the long way or the shorter way there?"

"The longer way, from that rock, to that rock right there."

"That one you mean right there, right?"

"Uhhh, no, the second one there, you got me?"


"Ya, sure, I gotcha."

Arrow walked up to the edge of the lake ready to start, even though he knew he would never be ready for this.  Kairo told all of them to go and everyone jumped in, and Arrow felt like he was gonna sink right to the bottom.  Arrow was there for almost an hour trying to get across that lake.  He was, of course the last one to make it there.

"God Kairo, I never thought I'd be able to do it.  I got about halfway across the lake and my arms, along with my whole body, were givng out," Arrow said.  "Well thats two bad because next were doing target practice and from what I've learned about guns you'll need your hands for this. So shape up, and get over there to that quarry."

They all arrived at the quarry and saw that TK was checking to make sure all the targets were operating properly.  When all the targets were tested they all lined up.  Squall was first, followed by, Gio, Arrow, Shakey, Sam, TK, and even Kairo was gonna give it a shot. When it was Arrow's turn he walked over and picked up the E-11, and started the targets.  The first two popped up at opposite ends of the quarry and he got them.  Then three popped up and he got two of them.  Then five popped up and he got 4 of the five.  Next, Arrow had to decide whether he wanted to use the E-Web or use the others.  He chose the E-Web.  with the E-Web Arrow trapped about, 7 of the 10 targets giving him 15 out of 20.  Kairo out of dumb luck got 20 out of 20.

Next they moved onto the race.  Everyone was sittting there pondering on what route to take.  Arrow already knew what he was doing. He was going through the trees.  Once everyone had settled what route they were going to take, everyone lined up, and Kairo sent them off.  Arrow started acting like he was taking a direct route through the woods, but when everyone branched off he headed up a tree (he didnt want anyone to get and idea from him).  Arrow was jumping from tree to tree leisurely.  He had hittin 3 of the beacons when something he couldnt see knocked him off his tree.  After a few seconds of looking around and observing the trees he didn't see anything so  Arrow jumped back onto the trees continued on and hit the last beacon, and finished the race first.

After about 10 minutes everyone had shown up and they continued onto the fourth task the melee training.

Once the Dragoons had made their way over to the quarry area, Zafo decided to head off towards the task on which he knew he would do well, the vehicle course. Zafo had been learning to specialize in operating vehicles, which gave him a lead over most others. He glanced at the selection of speeders and walkers then smiled when he saw his nightfalcon at the end of the row. On the seat was a scribbled note that read "Zafo's bike: all others, do not touch!"

"Why thanks, Rizz" Zafo said cheerfully, knowing nobody hear him. He tore off the note and sat in its place. He glanced at all his gauges then fired up the engine. Giving the slightest bit of power, he inched over to the start of the course.

"Shouldn't be too hard" Zafo thought to himself I would think the things the give me in my classes would be harder than this. Some people have little or no vehicle experience whatsoever."

Looking ahead Zafo saw that the sides of the course had a bright orange steak every 50 meters or so.  The course started off by heading straight into the jungle. "Let's see how fast I can do this&maybe raise a few eyebrows Zafo thought to himself as he checked his gauges one more time.

Zafo slammed the accelerator. The trees blasted by as Zafo traveled through the forest at dangerous speeds, making many sudden turns and dips to avoid trunks, fallen trees and various other obstacles. Occasionally a vine would hit him in the head causing him to loose concentration momentarily. Now and then Zafo would see a tree's trunk painted neon orange letting him know that he was right on track. After maneuvering through a tight net of a dozen or so trees, the forest suddenly as he was exposed to the massive quary. Zafo no longer had to worry about many more easily dodgeable trees but massive boulders. The small canyon Zafo was speeding down suddenly opened up on one side, revealing a deeper valley. Zafo only took his eyes off the course for a short second to see what lay in the valley below. From the flashed he saw, he guessed it was the target practice activity.

In the split second he had taken his eyes off his course, he had come incredibly close to a rather small dead tree right in front of him. Directly to the left and right of this tree were two large boulders. There were two things Zafo could have done. The first, more logical and safe one would have been to slow down and gone around the big obstacle. However, that's not the one he did. Zafo increased his speed and let out a stream of blaster fire which tore the incredibly dry and small piece of wood apart. Woodchips flew up into his face as the small trunk exploded. Zafo decided to keep his vision focused on the course to avoid any other possibly fatal situations.

The course continued through various caves, trenches and rock fields. Zafo could see how for the more unexperienced flyer this would be a challenging course. He found it a bit challenging, due to the fact he was going way faster than he should have been.

Zafo saw the end of the course away in the distance at the end of a boulder filled field. He also saw a sign indicating to him that the path would split momentarily. All the sign said was "longer way" and "shorter way". Seeing as Zafo was trying to do it as quickly as he could, he decided to take the shorter way, even though he was almost sure it would be more dangerous. After picking through an insane amount of boulders, the path suddenly became clear. Zafo became slightly suspicious but knew better than to slow down. Keeping his speed of about 300km/h Zafo bolted through the boulderless trench. Zafo saw a speck in the distance, another sign. A second later, it was way behind Zafo yet somehow he had managed to pick up what it said: "Warning, Cliff Ahead"

Zafo's grip on his nightfalcon's handle bars tightened as he brought his bike to an even higher speed. The thin line in the distance that Zafo had guessed to be the cliff was upon him in moments. Remembering one of his first classes, Zafo shot his bike up into the air a let go the accelerators a split second before the gap. The second and a half spent in the air were really intense. Many things passed through Zafo's head. Was he going to make it? Would his bike be able to hold out? Is this how his life would end, trying to gap a cliff on vacation?

The unpleasant thoughts stopped as soon as Zafo's bike was hovering a meter over the ground again. Zafo began to bring the bike to a quick stop, seeing as he crossed the finish line. A massive cloud of dust rose up behind Zafo as his bike went from 300+ km/h to zero in under 15 seconds. When the bike was stopped, Zafo stood up, his legs jello.
"That had to be almost as intense as that time a bolted through an asteroid field to escape whoever it is I was running from..."

Zafo looked to his right and saw a huge lake. Although it was kinda hard to tell, it seemed like Arrow was in the process of swimming across and was about halfway through. To the left, not to far away, Zafo saw the place where he had picked up his bike. He decided to put it back there for now before going on to his next task.

  (OOC It has been way to long since there has been a post on here. I was hoping you would all try to get a post in on what you did during training, but I don't want to keep this story on hold while I wait for you to get one out. I'll just take us on to the relaxing part of th trip and hope you guys post from there. )

  After taking part in the target practice task, Kairo had gone back to the shuttle that had taken them to the training area and sat down at a screen that displayed all of the training area. He had one screen play back the vehicle run that Zafo had done while some of the members had done the swimming task. Kairo had another screen display Marcus Nerva and Zafo finishing target practice. He had a third display the rest of the members take on the race through the jungle. Even though he had told them that they could take on any task they wanted to at anytime, most of the squad seemed to enjoy taking the task with eachother. He guessed that is was either to try to show off or to get to know eachother. Kairo saw Arrowcaan take off into the jungle's treetops while the rest of the squad decided to take it on foot. "Having a wookie makes things interesting. If we ever go on a forest of jungle mission, he will be a really nice asset." Kairo said to himself as he turned his attention to the playback of Zafo. He had just hopped his vehicle over the canyon and was making his way to the end of the track. "So much for that." Kairo stated, turning off the display. After a couple of minutes, he saw Marcus finish the target practice with a score of nineteen targets out of twenty. Nicely done. Kairo thought to himself. He seems to show quite an affinity toward weapons. I wonder how he'll do on the race though, since it always seems gunners can't pilot very well.

  A few minutes later he saw that everyone had completed the race task. Arrow, of course, had finished first, but everyone else had made it through with exceptional time. Kairo watched as they headed toward the hand to hand combat droid and watched as Zafo and Marcus met up with them rest of the squad there. They each took there turns. Some of them demolished their droid quickly while others found it to be a little harder. Shakey's and Arrow's sparring droids didn't stand a chance. Even though the droids had been given the size, strength, and agility of some of the best fighters, they were still outmatched by the sheer force of Arrow and the fluid movements of Shakey. The other members applauded them after they Arrow and Shakey had taken their respective turns. Once everyone had finished with that task, they all split up to finish whatever task they had left to complete. Kairo sat back to watch.

  About twenty minutes later, the squad had finished their training and had arrived at the transport. Kairo stepped out of the door. "I am quite pleases with how well you all did. Of course, some of you didn't fair as well as others in certain areas, but that is to be expected. That is why we are a team. Anyways, I'm sure your all dead tired, so come on in and I'll take us back to the hotel." Kairo walked to the cockpit and started the transport. Checking to make sure everyone was inside the vehicle, Kairo moved the shuttle forward and headed toward the hotel.

  Another fifteen minutes later and they had arrived. After parking the vehicle, Kairo had stepped out with the squad and watched as they shuffled into the lobby and into the turgolifts. Once they had made it to their floor, they all filed out. Some of them fell on to the couches, while others open the doors to their rooms and fell on their beds. "Some vacation Kairo." Squall taunted from his position on a couch. "You would think we were being punished or something, not rewarded."

  "Yeah." Gio chimed in from his room. "Can you not make the rest of the training assignment so damn hard. Sure the swimming one and the target practice were fun. But the race and combat droid was just excessice."

  "I found the jungle race to be quite enjoyable." Arrow woofed from his position in the center chamber. "It was the swimming that was a pain."

  "Are you out of your flipping mind. That race was just hot, long, boring, and wore my legs out." Gio corrected.

  "The race was fun. The swimming was the stupid, long, excrusiating, and cold part of the training." Arrow roared back.

  Kairo decided to make a break for it before the anger of a wookie and Gio turned on him for making them do either in the first place. Stealing into his room, Kaior walked over to his bed, where he had left his bag next to the night before. Looking around for any sign of Rizzit, Kairo decided he had already left for the day. Kairo pulled out some of his regular clothes and changed out of his training clothes. Putting on his two gun holsters, he slid his two favorite guns back into the proper place and pulled out some extra credits incase he decided to have a little fun. Creeping back out of the large room, he tried to sneak across the room along one of the outer walls.

  It appeared Gio and Arrow had finished their arguements and gone into their separate rooms. Squall was still lying on the couch, but was talking to Marucs Nerva. I'm glad to see he's fitting in. Kairo thought. He had almost made it to the turbolifts, when a voice said from behind him, "Where do you think your going?"

  Kairo turned around to see who had spotted him. It turned out to be Shakey. "Just for a little walk." Kairo said as he pressed the signal button for the lift.

  "And you didn't even invite me. Shame on you." Shakey said. "Well I didn't even want to go anyways." She stormed off to talk with Sam.

  What was that about? Kairo thought as he stepped into the turbolift and headed down to the lobby. Once he had arrived, he crossed the room and stepped into the bustling streets. Time to see what there is to do around here.

Gio loved arguments. And the fact that he was arguing with a Wookie added another level to this verbal squabble. One wrong move and he could quickly find himself on the wrong side of a huge hairy fist.

Without saying a thing, Giovanni walked away from the conversation and entered his hotel room. Squall was in the lounge downstairs talking to Marcus, the new recruit, so he had the room to himself for the time being. He took a shower and changed into a pair of shorts and a tank top. He took a deep sigh. He felt bad. He hadn't exactly tried his hardest today. He wasnt too worn out from his previous missions, he was just mentally tired. Fortunately for him, he had the medicine. He grabbed his bag and took out some old music discs. Out of another pocket he pulled out a Holopad.

He made his way to the Turbolift, Holopad in hand and went down a few floors. He saw Shakie sitting in the lounge enjoying herself, and Squall waving goodbye to Marcus. He turned a left and reached the hotel pool.

He pulled up a chair, and set the Holopad on the table next to him, and slipped in a disc.

A pretty humanoid girl gave him a fruity drink, and all was good.

(Hope this works...)

Over in one corner was Marcus sitting at a table working on some project.  He had been there ever since Giovanni left.  At the table he leaned over a disassembled DLT-20a Light Repeating Blaster.  Its guts spilled out over the table; a miss-match of wires, connectors, and capacitors.  Marcus was so consumed in this little project that he didn't even notice Squall come up behind him and start looking over his shoulder.

""Whatcha doin?"" said Squall.

""WAHH,"" screamed Marcus as he whipped around, ""Don't do that. You about scared me half-to-death.""

""Okay, okay, sorry.  But what are you doing?""

""I'm modifying this blaster here.  By solving some cooling problems, and adding a better focusing chamber, I can boost its power output by about 25%.""

""Whatever.  Take a swig of this.""

Marcus took the bottle out of Squall's hand and let the dark liquid go down his thought.

COUGH!  COUGH!  ""Damn, what is that!?"" said Marcus in-between coughs.

""Rum.""

COUGH!  ""Thanks.  Next time I drink something of yours, I'll be sure to ask what it is first.""

With that, Marcus settled back down into his little world again, content with fixing up his blaster.



After about two hours or so, Marcus sat up and rubbed his eyes.  His hard work had paid off.  If all went right, the blaster was now more powerful.  With a little shove back, he trust the blaster up into the air and screamed:  ""My work is completed!""

All the heads in the room spun around and looked straight at Marcus.  Letting out a soft ""Um,"" he quickly apologized and went to his room to go get his datapad.  He had to go to the rifle range to test his new baby.



After hurrying over to the rifle range, Marcus set up his datapad to test the power output of the new rifle and compare it to the old, unmodified one.  He got ready and waited for the target to pop up.  When it did, he quickly fired at it and hit it in square in the chest.  ""Yes!"" he thought.  He then hurried over to his datapad and checked the results.  Just as he had expected, his datapad told him that the blaster was now 26.78% more powerful than before.
