    Default Star Wars DoD - Episode VII: Revenge and Redemption

    STAR WARS: DAWN OF DEFIANCE
    Episode VII
    Revenge and Redemption


    With the taste of victory still sweet upon their lips,
    the heroes of the fledgling Rebellion return home to their fleet.
    Following the destruction of the Inquisitors’ tower,
    the Empire is searching for the culprits with extreme prejudice.
    As the Rebellion moves to determine the secret location of Project Sarlaac,
    the fearsome beast that is the Galactic Empire awakens.

    Default Part I: Revenge

    A short five days passed while the Beginner’s Luck surged through faster-than-light travel. As the small group of rebels reported the most damning evidence of the Empire’s new tyrannical superweapon to their superiors, the Luck’s hyperspace transceiver was awash with communication. Briefings to the officers of their home fleet, the Bothan SpyNet and even transmissions from Alderaan, Chandrilla and Corellia all occurred during the return journey. Where normally the team had days of quiet travel, everyone spent time reporting and aiding in the analysis of the Super Star Destroyer plans. All of the reports included the attendance of Gelnar Tor, who worked to aid the Rebellion despite recovering from his torture at the hands of the Inquisitorius.

    The senators and flag officers all came to agreement that they had to strike while the ion engines were hot. The Empire knew they now had the plans and would rush Project Sarlaac towards completion. With the SpyNet sending spies all over the galaxy to confirm the location of the project, it was only a matter of time. Finally on the fifth day of their impending arrival, the communications from the Fleet became eerily silent. Taking it as a sign of preparation, the group simply made ready to return home from possibly their most dangerous mission yet. As was their norm, the crew all took their positions in the cockpit or gunwell. When Tahla Joona lowered the hyperdrive activation lever returning them to realspace, absolute bedlam followed.

    The stretched lines of stars gave way to a dramatic scene: a number of ships on the horizon, including the Resurgence, trading turbolaser fire. Orange explosions rocketed in the space surrounding the capital ships, with signs of starfighter combat too far away to make out clearly. Two Star Destroyers on the edge of their effective range sent out countless green needle-like turbolaser blasts. The blasts primarily impacted the Corellian DP20 Frigate Revenge, but also the Resurgence and the other ships under her protection.

    While the Resurgence stood her ground, directing her own turbolaser blasts back at the Imperials, the Corellian Corvette Tantive I and Gallofree Freighter Freedom in the loyalist flotilla moved away in an attempt to escape the melee. A flash of light followed by a large ball of fire and debris marked the violent end of the Freedom. Everyone in the cockpit shared grim looks in the realization that their friend Comps was the second officer onboard.

    Major Shayle Wist’lya’s SYSOP station comms crackled to life suddenly, and the voice of Admiral Varth greeted them.

    “You’re late,” he said. “The Empire has us where they want us. It’d be suicide for you to stay, but we’re running out of options. All of our escape pods have been jettisoned, and our shields are down to half power. We still have crew members needing evacuation. The Revenge is on total automation and her crew abandoned ship. She is pounding both Star Destroyers with missiles, but won’t hold for long!”

    Shayle noted it strange that Varth was in command. Where was Commodore Verana?

    The voice of a nervous crewman in the background cut in. “Sir! We have reports of Imperial troops onboard!”

    Varth cursed. “All Resurgence crew, this is Resurgence Actual. Imperial troops are aboard. I repeat, Imperial troops are —”

    An intense hiss of static ended the transmission.

    “Get us out of here,” yelled Gelnar Tor, breaking the odd silence. “If the Empire gets me back…it’s all over. OVER!”

    OOC: Welcome back folks! Feel free to post what you want to do. Are you going back into hyperspace, or assisting with the evacuation of the Resurgence?

    Tahla sat in the cockpit, mouth agape at the devastation she witnessed through the viewport. Her home, her home for more than a year, was being blasted into debris. The Resurgence crew was like family to her. They looked up to her, regarded her with respect. She couldn't just leave them to die. She had a duty to these people.

    "Shayle," she said icily, reaching up to cinch the crash webbing tighter across her chest. "Charge the shields." She opened the shipboard comm. "Kade! Boot up the dorsal battery! We're going in!" Tahla slapped the throttle forward, and leaned back into her chair as the thrusters kicked.

    OOC: We're going in.

    Alsia looked on numb at what she saw. Every home she had ever had was taken from her, and now, this one was as well. Somewhere in the massive ship her little NovaSword starship was probably becoming scrap. This galaxy sucked. Nothing but eternal fighting.

    "Shayle," she said icily, reaching up to cinch the crash webbing tighter across her chest. "Charge the shields." She opened the shipboard comm. "Kade! Boot up the ventral battery! We're going in!" Tahla slapped the throttle forward, and leaned back into her chair as the thrusters kicked.
    "Do you need me up here or should I be doing something else. I dont have much experience as co in a firefight." She asked Tahla even as she was unbuckling herself from the co-pilots seat. "To bad ACE isnt here, we could really use his mercenaries now."

    "Alsia," Tahla said, her eyes fixed on the turbo laser fire streaming from the space fortresses on either side, "I need you to help me fly. Kade has the gun."

    Shayle quickly raised the shields with a growl. "How did they find the fleet? We've been careful, somewhat... and where is Commodore Verana?" He said as an after thought. They did sweeps all the time for tracking devices how did they... "Traitor." Shayle said as the shields enveloped the Luck. "We may have a traitor amongst the fleet... if we survive this we need to do a security sweep, maybe some interrogations... if we survive." He didn't want to sound grim, but their situation and the Rebellion's was dire.
