*(I figure I better post something on this ComNet. Yes I know Chapter 5 was already started, but I want to do it a bit differently)*

Threeof4 sat silently in his office as he quickly wrote up some new orders for his Division leaders. It was early in the morning, but that was the only time that the FM could get any work done without the people under him bombarding him with questions. He turned off the light on his desk, gathered up datapads to be handed out, and headed out to deliver them. Usually he had his assistant do that, but it gave him a reason to get up and leave his office.

He walked down the hallways of the mSSD Mustang towards the squadron quarters. Even though Sector Admiral Majere was the Operations Officer of the VE, he prefered to be closer to his squadron instead of being in the quarters that are usually assigned to
a person in his position.

Threeof4 punched in his override code to the door to Majeres quarters. The doors slid open, and Threeof4 placed a datapad on the door in front of the door, and then stepped back so that the door would close. He did the same things to the two other flight leaders of Majere's squadron, except he turned on the lights of their quarters before he left.

He then walked up to the bridge of the Mustang. Vice Admiral Apocalypse was standing in front of the large windows, enjoy his morning caff, when Threeof4 made his way onto the bridge. Apoc turned and saluted, and then noticed the evil grin on Threeof4's face.

"Just watch," replied Threeof4 to Apocs inquisitive face.


Majere awoke with a jolt as the alarm in his room rang out loud. He got up and walked over to see if new messages had appeared while he slept. It wasn't until he was about to take a shower that he noticed the datapad sitting on the floor in front of his door. 'Curious,' he thought as he read it.



Training Mission Kaph Squadron
-------------------------------------
Flight 1 vs. Flights 2 & 3

Starting at 0530



"Damn him," Majere said aloud, as he threw down his towel and put on his flight suit. He ran down the hall to where his flight slept.


"Sir, the first flight of Kaph Squadron has requested permission to launch." The Radio Officer reported to the men standing on the bridge.

Threeof4 walked over to the where the radio officer was sitting and took the microphone from the RO. "Your late."

Majere just groaned.

"You're the one that wanted to be an example to the Navy, I figured I'd help you out."

"Thanks. Flight 1 ready for launch."

"Good luck Sir," said the RO.

"Only to serve," came Majere's reply.

{OOC: Great start!}

Majere groaned as he watched the arm grab his Tie Fighter for launch. After a few more minutes he was finally loose, "Kaph Two and Three on me. Watch my back and we should be back in our bunks sleeping in....." Suddenly a barrage of lasers swept past the cockpit, one striking the right panel, knocking out his shields completely. Majere quickly swerved to avoid being blown out of his own starfighter. Majere quickly scanned and found his opponents. Flight's Two and Three were Tie Fighter Droids that for some reason knew that killing Kaph One would end this fight. Another quick thought that popped into Majere's head was that the Droids were piloted by the computers on the Mustang, of which everything was built by design by Field Marshal Threeof4. The last thing that Majere saw was a communication from the Mustang, "Live fire exercise." Majere cursed and started praying to the Ancient Dark Lords to let him live long enough to curse out Threeof4, then beat up on his new pilots to try and make them better.

{OOC: If you reply to this please make sure that you get the other pilots information from the Navy roster.}

Second Lt Anakin traveled towards the Mustang in one of the FM's shuttles. He had been rudely awakened by HG Crysus himself and was forced onto the shuttle. He finally finished getting into his uniform by the time the shuttle finished docking procedures. Once the shuttle docked, he was escorted by stormtroopers directly to the bridge of the Mustang.

Threeof4 and Apoc stood on the bridge watching a tie battle take place outside.

"What do you suppose the odds are?" Apoc asked Three.

"I'll give you 20:1 that Majere loses both of his flight members." said Three.

"Your not putting very much faith in his attempt to show off."

"But I am putting faith in the program that I wrote especially for him. 30000 IC's ok?"

"I'll have to get back to you on that." (You have until Majere or one of his squadron people solve their problem to decide if you want to take that bet)

"Ahh Anakin you're here," Threeof4 handed him a datapad.



Training Mission - Wildcard Platoon
Starting Immediately
Corvette Capture Mission


"I believe you'll find your platoon and everything you need outside airlock 14. Good luck Anakin."

"Thank you sir," he said as he turned to the door.

Lots and lots of training

(This is my first run-on post.Please don't laugh at any mistakes etc)

Lance Corporal Soontir Fel was sitting in his TIE-Fighter and thaugt:"Why this damn maneuver so early in the morning?" but he followed the orders of Admiral Majere. Almost sleeping he suddenly had to fly evasing maneuvers as he saw that Majere's TIE was hit by lasers. "Damn. This droids are quiet good." Fel marked two droids as opponents one and two. "So, let's find out how good you really were programmed." Fel had to gave his best, but he finally could blow one droid into millions of pieces. "Gotcha. This will be a very interesting flight!"

Malik was starting to wake up, when a laser passed just 3 inches from his Tie Fighter. He could see that he had a Tie Droid chasing him, but he quickly turned around and fired at it, he hit the solar panel in the left side of it and it blew up.

Japer decied it would be good for his squad if they refreshed on some flying lessons. So he gatherd them up. They all entered there ties so they started flying around. Then all of a sudden a laser almost hit japers tie.


Then japer, who was every mad started chasing the tie that shot at him firing rapidly. As he flew he decided it would be better if he put on some war music. So he reached for his ausome milestone rock cd. And put it and somebodys gota feel this.


So as he flew to attack once again he lost his enemy tie but soon was enraged when the same tie shot at him and then it destroyed his ausome cd!!!!!! So cursing very loadly he chased them down and blew them down!

Greetings Wildcard Platoon, you have been selected to board and capture a rebel corvette as a training exercise. You have an unknown amount of time to ambush it at its repair facility in a remote area of space. Your new warships will speed you there and you can capture the corvette, whether or not we will scuttle it afterwards is unknown at this time.

Zsinj smiled

As japer sat on the ground, his comnet went off, someone said to gather his squad the wildcard platoon was chosen to ambush some rebels.
20 minutes later

Japer and his squad waited with the rest of the troopers. Then finally the transport arived. All of the troopers borded the ship.


As they where flying japer gave his tropers a talk. " This will be the first time you new guys are in battle so lets make this one a good first one"

Private First Class Cosmic from Elite Iron Horse Squad, walked down a long corridor of the Training Facility.
His forehead was soaked with sweat from a previous training mission: Battle of Two Jedi.
It was a tough trek but he finished it alive.
Cosmic got to the end of the corridor and walked into the nurses room.
The nurse saw him and her eyebrows went up.
"I see that you need tending." Said said as she motioned her finger to his stomach wound.
Cosmic nodded and sat down on the bed.
"Ok. We'll it looks like that this only needs some stitches.
Cosmic nodded once again and let her do her thing with the stitches.
Once she was done, Cosmic walked out of the room and headed towards the control area where he saw twenty people, head-down, in their work.
"More training Cos?" Asked Crysus smiling.
Cosmic chuckled and pointed to his stomach.
"I see. Well, looks like you need more." Crysus smiled.
Cosmic turned and walked to the nearest drinking fountain.

Majere was still flying for his life. His shields were still down to 12 percent which wouldnt protect him from a strong laser blast. Everytime he tried to get behind a Tie Droid another was behind him firing at him. However, his fellow pilots were doing a bangup job. Only half of the Tie Driods still existed with the others in various pieces around the Mustang. All the pilots had to do was sit back, fly behind Majere, and fire at whoever was trying to kill him. All this seemed easy enough until a Modified Corvette came into view. Majere quickly saw another message from FM Threeof4:

..........
Message from FM Threeof4
.........
New orders. You will not only fly against the rest of your flight, but you will also remove the shields from the Corvette so that it can be disable and boarded. You have 5 minutes since that is when the Transports will be leaving and heading towards the Corvette. I certainly hope you have knocked out those guns, because I would not be to pleased if you failed. However, I do have some good news. I am sending a couple more pilots to help you. Threeof4 out
.........

Suddenly Majere threw every curseword in the book at his comm unit. "Ok, enough playing around. It's time to test out your training pilots and here is how we are going to do it...

I will take on the droids and the rest of you work on the Corvette. If I get killed Soontir Fel will take my place. Good luck, I am depending on you. Remember, just take out the shields, and destroy the Corvette's 2 guns. It will be difficult with the added protection. Good luck..."

Japer was flying around the permiter trying to hit the guns of the corvettes guns. As he monovered he doged blasts from the guns. Finally he hit one of them. But it dident do him much good because the other gun just blasted his ship hard. "MY SHEILD ARE DOWN MY SHEILDS ARE DOWN" yelled japer into his comnet.


So then japer still trying to destroy one of the guns was backed up by another ship. He couldent tell who it was. So then they where abel to destroy one of the two guns.

"OK, you heard him" said Fel and throttled to full power. He flew over the corvette and fired over it but the shields didn't break. Suddenly a laser from the corvette hit his TIE. "I'm hit. Malik, that's your chance. Destroy the lasergun."

Cosmic watched Majere's Tie Fighter on an Onboard Video Camera.
His forehead was sweating and his fists were clenched.
"Come on Majere! You can do it!" Whispered Cosmic to himself.
He looked around and then back towards the screen.
He was not quite sure on what to do.

Malik heard the message in his comm unit, and started shooting at the laser. After a couple of shots, the laser was destroyed, and he started shooting at the corvette, to get the shields down as quick as possible. But then he got hit by a laser, and his shield went down to 3%, when he tried calling for help, he found out that his comm unit was broken!

Threeof4 stood motionless on board the Mustang. His eyes darting back and forth, watching the battle unfold. It was amazing how smoothly things were going. Majere's squadron was doing better than Threeof4 had hoped, but that was not what he wanted. Then a devilish idea came into Threeof4's head.

"Captain Apocalypse, prepare my shuttle to launch when I arrive. When it's in space, launch more droids, and adjust the Droid's mission to destroy my shuttle."

"But sir..."

"Majere will just have to protect it." and with that Threeof4 walked to wards the shuttle bay.

SiriusV was just coming out of his barracks on board, when he saw a tiny group of troopers including Cosmic, who was from his squad. Curious, SiriusV jogged over gently and tapped Cosmic on the shoulder. COsmic was too engrossed in the forthcoming scene through the bridge's windows to do anything expect to mutter a quick hello.

SiriusV grinned and said, ' Caught the fight bug eh, Cos?'

Cosmic replied, 'Cant help. This is too exciting.'

Cosmic tore his eyes off the bridge for a while, and said, 'Got the message of us having a trainning?'

SiriusV held up a piece of paper and said, ' What do you think?'

Cosmic grinned and said, ' I guess after the civil war, this might be easier to handle.'

SiriusV shook his head and said with a tinge of uncertainty,' Maybe it might be, but the Vast Empire was never lenient when it comes to trainning. I guess that since we are in the best squad, we should get quite a fair share of action.'

Cosmic nodded with agreement and turned his head just in time to see Majere pull his TIE out of a steep dive, so that the enemy fighter accidently shot its own comrade.

SiriusV cheered with the rest as they saw the fighter go down in flames and immediately quietened as the action continued...

"Sir, the corvette's guns have been taken out. We don't have ion cannons to disable the craft. What should we do?"

Majere swerved his craft, "Okay, no problem. Get back here and help me with this last flight of Tie Droids. The transports will disable the corvette so no worries there. If I know Threeof4 he has another trick up his sleeve so we need to clear these Droids asap. You guys are doing great, and I have a trick of my own. In the form of new pilots." Majere started to grin from ear to ear. During this long fight he was messaged with 3 more recruits who were almost ready to launch in their new Tie Fighters. "Make sure your flight recorders are on. I plan to announce our new Flight Leader for our Tie Bomber Flight."

"Oh, and if your fighter is damaged. Go back and get another one. We have a couple of minutes before I expect Three to throw something more dangerous at us and I need all of you with fresh starfighters."

Majere looked at his shields, he just took another hit that knocked out his shields again. He hated the Tie Fighters, they were the most dangerous starfighters in the galaxy. His first plan was to get the Vast Empire's factories back to work and perhaps upgrade everyone's starfighters. Majere was starting to remember what it was like being a pilot. The fear that Majere felt back then only increased in time.

Threeof4 made his way down towards the shuttle bay where the Dragonlady lay waiting for him. Techs were running around making sure that the craft was ready for flight. The head tech immediately recognized the FM and quickly walked out to meet him.

"The Dragonlady isn't going to be able to take many hits, you do know this right?"

"I'm well aware of what my shuttle can and cannot do. Is everything ready for my departure?"

"Yes sir, once we check the energy supplies you can launch."

"Thank you," with that FM Threeof4 saluted the tech and made his way onto the shuttle.


"Mustang, this is shuttle Dragonlady, is my flight plan approved?" Three said into the comm system on his shuttle.

"Dragonlady, your flight plan is approved, stand by message from Atrus." came the static filled voice of the Radio officer on the Mustang.

"You're ignorance is your downfall. What you're doing is suicide." Atrus's voice was filled with concern.

"You're lack of faith is yours." Three shut off the radio and moved his shuttle out into emptyness of space.


Majere dropped his Tie's speed, and spun "downwards" hoping that the droid behind him would not be ready for such a maneuver. Three new members of his flight had just made it out of the hanger, and hadn't arrived to help yet. He had to keep one step ahead of this droid for a little bit longer.

His Tie's computer started to alarm. He took a second to glance at the display.

"FRACK!" Majere turned on his radio and sent a signal to his pilots. "We have new targets incoming. Two flights of Tie Droids at 3 klicks, and .... you have got to be kidding. One Shuttle."

"Roger that Sir, new contacts are vectoring in on the shuttle, should we engage?"

"I would highly suggest that." Three's voice came through on the frequency. "Seeing as how I'm in the shuttle."

"What are you doing out here? Do you think you're invincible?" Majere yelled into the radio.

"It's your job to make me that way. Oh and do hurry. I'm afraid the Dragonlady wasn't designed to take much damage."

"Second Flight get in there and protect that fool."

"Aye sir."


Threeof4 watched as Tie Droids started to swarm on his location. He waited for them, his hand hovering over the weapons system on the Dragonlady.

"Come on, closer. Lets see what happens when Daishi's toys come up against mine." It had been about four weeks since he and Daishi started to work on the weapons system of the Dragonlady, Daishi doing most of the design work himself.

"Perfect." Three pushed the button and watched the weapons systems come to life. Alarms started to ring as the Droids came within firing range of the shuttle. Immediately the shuttle started firing. Tie Droids scrambeled to avoid the turrets fire.

Malik flew towards the shuttle, he guessed they had to protect it, when he got closer he noticed that the droids only went after the shuttle. He picked the nearest one out, and fired four shots at it whih destroyed it.

"Oh no, not more of these droids" thaught Soontir Fel to himself as he saw them coming out of the hangar. "Then back to the roots" Fel screamed and started firing at them. One explode and another was hit. "Gotcha"

Fury sprinted for the hangar where the Marauder Corvette was awaiting him. Having been on leave after capturing the two vessels, he had spent his time - well, basically boozed up. Too many blaster bolts hitting armor meant too many bruises. Not enough for bacta...too much for a stim tab. Thus the whiskey healing program.

Unfortunately, duty had this weird way of getting through even the largest of hangovers. A shower and a briefing later, which was basically a short, terse set of orders received at a very high volume in his very dark quarters, Fury was assembling armor and checking his gear as he raced to board the vessel in time. He wasn't even sure if SGT Snake would be back in order to lead the squad this go-round.

As he ran through the corridors, trying successfully to not bowl over anybody...well, at least nobody fell...he came across a group of troopers gazing out an observation window. He stopped to see who was present. Cosmic, Sirius V, Zsinj, and a few others. Well, he sort of had rank on them. "Heads up!," he yelled, more in skull-racking pain than authority. "That corvette you are admiring just happens to be our next chance to run into blaster fire. You wouldn't want to miss a life-threatening experience, would you? Secure your gear and let's get on that transport." With that he continued heading towards the hangar. Whether or not he was followed was a different matter.

Upon reaching the Marauder's docking bay, he raced up and threw his essentials in a designated storage bin. Being relatively early meant a better seat, and not all of the ship had been refurbished since it's takiing a few weeks back. Comfort was at a premium on the...hmmmm, apparently the vessel hadn't been named yet.

In any case, Fury set himself down on a reasonably comfortable acceleration seat and ulled out a datapad to see what his role in the upcoming boarding raid would be.

PJ paced as he waited for the something to do. Kaph was in training, Claw was busy with his duties of being the Training Officer's adjutant and the other squadrons were on the the other Star Destroyers. After ten minutes of pacing PJ decided to go to the officer's lounge and see if there was anyone to talk to.

Opening the lounge's door, PJ found it unusualy empty, besides the bartender and the various droids scattered around the room. 'Man this just isn't my day,' he thought to himself.

After having a couple sodas, PJ slipped into the simulation cockpit in the far corner of the room.....

When hearing of the battle the nearly healed Snake Ran to catch the shuttle that was leaving with his squad on it. Just As it statd lifting off he reached the ramp and ran on. He had to stand for the entire ride because he was last on. The Sargeant went to find Fury and ask for details. When found, in the equivalent of first sclass of course, Fury was very surpprised to see his sargeant.
"You didn't think i would miss two combat ops did you"?
"ok ya got me there, so do you want command back"?
"Yes, sir" replied Snake, "Where is the rest of the squad i want to go talk to them".
"They are farther aft sir, do you wnat me to breif you?"
"Ya but make it quick cause i neeed to talk to the men"
"OK, it comes down to this, we kill all the rebels. That's as breif as it can be. And sir, it good to have you back."

Zsinj looked out through the transports viewport and noticed that the transports were attacking the Corvette since the TIE's didn't have Ions. Noticing the blue sheethes of blue lightening flowing over the corvette Zsinj waited for a speech from the commanding officers.

"All right people, we are nearing the time of our docking, double check your weapons and stand by to board the ship," stated the Commanding officer of the group on the transport.

Zsinj quickly double checked his Blaser rifile and put his vibroblade into a protected place.

Zsinj heard the metal "clink" of the transport docking and inched forward towards the ramp where the troops would be disgorged.

The ramp slammed open with a metal bang and the troops opened fire...

Cosmic ran towards his bunk and brought out his Stormtrooper Blaster and his new Sniper Rifle. Cosmic was getting quite good at sniping. In one training room, he got twenty-four enemy droids and troopers.

Cosmic got his things in order and quickly ran towards the docking bay where the shuttle was soon to land.

Fury saw him and quickly caught up to him.
"So Cos, you got yourself prepared, eh?"
Cosmic nodded.
"Yep! I certainly have! I'm pretty good with the sniper rifle. I've got some pretty good kills."
"Better prove that your good today. You'll be against some pretty tough guys."
Cosmic nodded.
"I understand that. Maybe a little tougher than war."
Fury chuckled.
"Maybe."

A couple of minutes later, the shuttle landed and Cosmic walked inside.
There were seats aligned against the shuttle walls where the troopers sat.
There were also laser cannons on the sides of the shuttle and little controllers for the lasers inside so that troops can operate them without having to go outside into space.

All the troops got into the shuttle and the shuttle doors closed airtight.
The shuttle lifted off the ground and headed into space...shields up at maximum and lasers set to their highest power.
"So it begins again. This time a little more difficult." Said Cosmic.

***The Mustangs Officer's Lounge***

A tall mysterious figure walked into the seemingly empty Lounge... He saw lights flickering in the flight simulator in the corner. He walked over, military boots making loud footsteps on the metal deck of the star destroyer.

He looked down at the keypad and punched in the Commander in Chief's override code. The door to the simulator opened with a sound of air in the hydrolics. He reached in and pulled the occupant out by the front of it's uniform, holding him up with one hand.

"Atr--!" the occupant squeaked out, but was briskly cut off by NCC Atrus.

"There you are you little runt! I've been leaving messages for you in your quarters for half an hour!."

"Sorry, sir, everyone was out in training, so I thought I would brush up on my pilot skills in here."

Atrus let him down out of the air and set him on the floor, then CM `Pj promptly tried to straighten the wrinkled uniform where Atrus had a firm grasp holding him in the air. Some have said that Atrus was even more ruthless with his officers than Lord Darth Vader, and certainly more powerful in the foce than Vader had been.

"I've come here to tell you that you have a new assignment. A loner. Scouting mission, to explore the immediate surrounding systems. Try to get an idea of where the ambush had come from. You are to take a TIE Advanced starfighter, and report back to me through the force every hour, on the hour on your findings. We can't use the normal Comm Channels due to the fact that unwanted ears may be listiening to the VE's transmissions." Atrus explained to his peon, then handed him a marked data card and veiwer to explain the full details of the mission.

"Thank you, sir, To tell you the truth I was getting a little bored around here"

"Me too, Pj, me too..."

Commander Pj saluted Atrus then turned on his heels to leave.

Atrus turned around and with a mischevious grin turned around to the simulator, made a few modifications to the programming to make the missions harder, then hoped in for a spin.

Cosmic sat in his shuttle chair, waiting for the sound of lasers to go off.
His comrades sat beside him. Faces down, staring at the floor.
Cosmic nodded his head as he knew the thoughts in their head.
another war.

As the space battle raged on it was only luck that both Majere and Threeof4 have not been blasted out of the sky yet. Threeof4's shuttle had been hit a few times but the shields deflected every shot. Majere was about to take on another shot at a droid when suddenly his starfighter was hit, "My god, shields down to nothing! Hull down to 66 percent! I need some help!" Sparks were flying everywhere and so were the laser blasts from the droids behind him. Suddenly Majere's Tie Fighter was rocked by 2 major explosions behind him. As he looked behind him he knew that his own pilots just saved his life. Majere let out a deep breath, "Thank you."

"I'm here for 2 minutes and already I have to save your butt. You need some practice lessons...Commander," smiled Sildrin.

"I would have to agree sir, who's teaching who how to fly," asked Marka Ragnos.

Majere growled, "Ok, ok, don't get to cocky or I would have to punish the both of you."

Sildrin smiled, "Promise?"

Majere laughed, "Yes, now lets see about clearing out these droids."

Finally, the tide had turned and the droids were being picked off one by one. Threeof4's shuttle took some damage but nothing serious and so far Kaph Squadron had not yet lost a single pilot. A couple of his pilots had to head back because of damage but most were doing much better than expected. Kaph Squadrons first live fire exercise was proving to be very successful.

[As I take it this is still part of Project Welcome Home and IOC comes after this if I am wrong then I guess I'll have to change parts of my post.]

Daishi watched the read outs and was glad he hadn't lost his touch as a technician. The weapon system was performing above expectations but Daishi was concerned about the higher then anticipated energy and heat output of the generators. The readings were still within the specs he and Three drew up but Daishi's slightly perfectionistic nature screamed out that this was something that needed to be fixed.

Fortunately Daishi had his own project to work on with The Royal Barkalounger. He had been experimenting with getting more speed out of the same engines. Up till a week ago he was having little success. He found that the mounting of the repulsor lifts were not positioned quite properly, at least not for what he intendid. With this modification he wouldn't be able to use the repulsor lift as a propulsion system in atmosphere anymore but it would serve as a breaking system allowing him to suddenly deacelerate on an opponent and still having greater speed overall. This combination would serve him well if he ever had to do a straffing run. The only potential flaw in the system is the engines might overload and cut out if he performed that particular manuever. The Repulsor lift system wouldn't be in much better shape either if it came down to that.

Daishi turned off the monitor and went back to his modification work. He may need this in the near future against his former friend that had now made himself an enemy. Daishi hoped he could find more support then he already had to free his homeworld from the grip of the New Republic. So far all he had was what little remained of the Intruder Wing's POD, an over strength squad, a potential ally in Jahromk's brother, and if he could get them past thier New Republic keepers, the Varneck Planetary Defense Force. Daishi had trained many of those people as part of his own officer training and he knew he could count on every single one of them to help him out. All that combined may not be enough against the commander of the rebel garrison forces there, one Admiral Boo Wood.

Anakin was in the front Pilots cabin staring into the vast emptiness of space. Up ahead was the Corvette they were to capture.

"We are 300 kilometers from the rebel ship Commander," the pilot said with a concerned look on his face.

"Good. Jam their communications and slow the ship down. I'll go prepare the troops and be back before we land to give you the attack plan." Anakin replied

Anakin walked into the "first class" section of the transport, and meet up with his squad leaders. "Good evening, Gentlemen." Anakin said as he saluted. The squad leaders stood up and saluted him back. "Are the troops ready?"

"They are feeling like they could take over the world at the moment." TJ replied

"Yes they are very to kick some rebels butt!" said g5.

"Good, they should do just fine then. Here is what needs to happen. I will have the ship placed along the side of the Corvette. When we attach ourselves to it, I want to have Japer and his troops lay sequence charges on side of their ship so we have nice enterance." I would like them to fall in first. Form your ranks along the sidewall to make way for the rest of the squad to enter. Raiders, Wraith, the Iron Horse will follow in that order.

If my information is correct, the spot we enter puts us right in the middle of a long hallway. I want Panters and Wraith to go off to the Left and Raiders and Iron Horse off to the right. Remember to stay close to the walls, they are your protection. Make your way around the hallways at a steady pace and you should all meet at the bridge of the Corvette. I will be right behind you of course, watching for your strengths and weaknesses. Good luck and hey, have some fun!!!"

The squad leaders saluted and ran off to give their squads the attack plans. Moments later after Anakin told the pilot what he was to do while they were on their mission, the Transport latched onto the side of the Corvette, and Panther squad began to place their charges. They blew and the squads began to fill into the rebel ship.........

Daishi was watching the display screen with more intent then before with the start of the boarding operation. Daishi had worked up some rather difficult but not life threatening traps for them to deal with. So far they were doing everything by the book. He smiled as the smoke grenade and flare launchers went off to blind the troopers. Next would be the stun traps. One by one the traps went off and members of the army were being marked as wounded but none as mission kills yet, this desturbed Daishi he had hoped his traps would provide a more difficult time for them. All he could hope for was that the programing he put into the battle droids would prove to be more effective.

((OOC: When i'm Army it's snake ok?))
As the raiders Led the way through a deserted hallway all the lights went out. Within seconds The emergency lights came on. It was just in time, because they illuminated a fake light that was truly a light blaster. "Hit the beck, and blow all the lights, They arerigged!!" ordered Snake.
TJ got his squad down and then the laser began targeting EIH.The Raiders managed to disable it, unfortunely Fury didn't have a chance tochange his setting to a lower charge. Snake mettered "this has to be Daishi, He's the only one that clever. And he tried to time the light delay too. Too bad for him something went wrong. Damn you, Daishi." Then soon there after all the lights were disabled ad the troopers flashlights were activated. A call went out to the Wraiths and Panthers to watch for ligts.

[Note only VEDJ Members may post on this]

DGM Atrus sat high on his throne on the mSSD Mustang, Dark Jedi deck. He had just returned from the flight simulator in the officer's lounge. He sighed in boredom, peturbed that the Navy and Army had people participating in training for revenge against the attrocities that were committed against the great Vast Empire, yet everyone left the Dark Jedi Order out.

He stood up and activated a Lightsabre practice droid and started to parry all of it's swings, almost effortlessly. A master at sword fighting, and quickly mastering all of his force abilities since he has become a Dark Jedi Master and the DGM. He raised the difficulty level on the droid to the highest setting.

He continued to block all the droids blows then suddenly twirled around with inhuman speed and cleanly sliced the droid's head off, and it landed with a 'clank' on the metallic floor of the massive star destroyer.

The idea just came to him. He rushed to the VEDJ quarters on deck, to wake all the Jedi, with the exception of DJK Tj who was out on a special mission.

Each of the jedi woke up startled, by an alarm, and a blast muzzle pointed at their face. Most of the more experienced of the jedi survived to find the note left on their door to come to the Mustang's DJO training gym.

Atrus noticed that a few of the trainees had not shown up by the time he listed on the notes, so he went ahead and started, they were presumably not quick enough for his wake up call.

Master Hexum, dressed in his combat utility uniform, which consisted of combat boots, black utility trousers and a black t-shirt, started going through the training excercise briefing.
"This live fire excercise is going to prepare you for the revenge against those who ambushed the mighty Vast Empire recently, you will all be at top shape, or will die by my hand. It will consist of Jedi vrs Jedi. Griffen Sect vrs the rest of the VEDJ to be exact." and at that point we waved to the only Griffen sect member besides himself not currently otherwise engaged with some other activity, DJK Talon. "To make things fair for the rest of you, I will limit the powers that I will use, and will not be as aggresive as normal, but for the rest of you, there are no rules."

Atrus pulled out a remote from his belt that transformed the gym into a virtual battle ground, with many structures to use for cover and bases for each side. "Team 1, will be Griffen sect: DJM Atrus and DJK Talon. Team 2, will be Eagle sect: SG Exar Kun, and SG Sirius Voldemart; Lion sect: DJK Athran; and the few remaining trainees that we have. Also, both teams will be equiped with a few droids to guard their base. Team one will have 2 squadrons of battle droids. and Team 2 will have 4 squadrons. The droids will have blaster rifles and lightsabres, they are standard jedi training droids. Before you peeps in team two get too cocky, just remember you are dealing with the current most powerful Jedi in the Vast Empire, so watch your step."

"Any questions? Good, move out." Atrus shouted to the jedi in the room as they hurried to their base to activate the droids. He turned around and strapped both of his swords to his back forming an X with them crossing each other. He then picked up his lightstaff and attached it to his belt, put a blaster rifle in the hoster on his side, and a combat knife in the strap on the side of his boot.

"The he turned to Talon, alright let's get our plan worked out..."

They walked to the Green team base, and activated the droids at strategic positions, equipping a few with sniper rifles and hiding them, were the enemy could not see the droids, yet the droids could see the enemy.

Talon finished adjusting the angle of one of the robots and then had a thought. He tapped a small button and a small door opened showing a small control pad. Quickly typing in a new command Talon smiles wickedly and closed the door. He had set the 'bot's personality to "rabbid." If anyone was un-prepared as they walked by it, they were toast.

Opting to use his sabers as a "Darkstaff" for once, Talon unclipped it and checked his blaster. Everything was ready. All that was needed was to start the live-fire practice.

Atrus walked by Talon and he could sense the Dark Jedi Master wasn't bursting with anger as he normally was in battle. He was trying his best to hold back. Talon thought, "I wonder how long that'll last." He then flinched as he felt his master say, "We'll see." Talon reached out and felt for his comrads. Athran and Exar Kun were adjusting one of their bots while Sirius was doing another on his own on the other side of their base. Talon sighed and waited.

So far, Agent and his troops had done pretty good, as far as Agent was concerned. They were newbies and they were getting past almost every trap set for them. Agent set some explosives at a door and, with the rest of the present men, backed around a corner, got everyone down, and blew the door to pieces. Though Agent tried to stop them, he couldn't help it when a couple of newbies charged like madmen through the doors. They couldn't see in the clearing smoke, Agent knew. He waited a while longer, and heard yelling, followed by a large laser blast.

"Dammit!" he yelled out loud.

"Ok, let's go now."

Squad leaders leading the way in, both squads filed around the corner into another hallway. Keeping their backs close to the wall, they could just make out the forms of two stunned troopers lying on the ground.

"Get them back," Agent ordered as he drug one of his troops back. "Hold on." Agent said. Putting his eye up to the scope on his rifle, he fired. The rest of the squad was confused; they could see no trap. The shot reflected off the wall and back onto something, which caused a large explosion. "I knew there was something there. How else did these guys get stunned? So I looked to this metal wall, and noticed something moving. So i shot it before it shot us." Agent explained.

Exar Kun removed the chest plate of a droid, he then begain to expertly "fiddle" with the diffrent wires, and motors in the droid. After sevrel minutes of clipping wires, and adjusting motors, Exar carfully slid the chest plate back into place and flicked a switch on the neck of the droid. Two beatle black eyes lit up on the head of the droid. It looked at Exar then at it's own body. Then once again looked back up at Exar. In a swift motoion the droid raced out into the training hall, to see what it could tear apart.
Exar Kun reached down and unclipped his lightsabre from his belt. Before activating it he roatated his neck on his shoulders, a few pops and cracks echoed from his spine. He then glared out into the room, looking for some sort of "pray"

Sergeant Cosmic was in front on the Elite Iron Horse Squad. His Stormtrooper Rifle was held with both hands...very tightly.
Sweat poured down his forehead. The humidity inside his Imperial Helmet was bad. He couldn't take it off though. He knew that if he did, it would be sudden death. The hole in the side of the corvette was slowly but surely depleting the oxygen.

He waved the EIH Squad over. They slowly walked towards Sgt. Cosmic. Cosmic slowly ran alongside the wall.
The dark glass that covered his eyes were almost fogged up because of his sweat.
He had to get to a airlocked room and fast! He would be blinded by the fog within ten minutes!

Cosmic looked around the corner and saw nothing. He waved the EIH over and they all ran towards a door that looked like an airtight door.
They ran towards it, opened it and closed it really fast.

Cosmic stared across the room.
It appeared to be some kind of computer room.
The scene was quickly being fogged up.
Cosmic patted a trooper on the back. The trooper turned to Cosmic and nodded.
"I want you to go to one of the computers and see if this room is breathable." Said Cosmic.
The trooper nodded and gave Cosmic a thumbs-up sign.

Cosmic took off his helmet and took a deep breath. He wiped the foggy water off of his dark glass then put his helmet back on.
"Great. Now I shouldn't have a problem. I just won't sweat." Said Cosmic.

The troopers set their guns from stun to kill. Cosmic did the same.
Cosmic signalled the EIH squad to come back to the door that they had previously come from.

Cosmic slowly opened the door and peeked out.
Nothing.

He and the rest of the squad krept along the hallway wall and immediately stopped at a whispering voice......Rebels!

Cosmic quickly signalled the squad and they all nodded in return.

Cosmic peeked around the bend and saw about fifteen Rebels planning.
Cosmic signalled and they all jumped out from their places.
Blasters flew through the air.
Rebels fell and screamed.

"We got 'em with their pants down!" Yelled Cosmic as he fired.
The troopers laughed.

SZZZZP..ZZZZP, ZZZPP! went their lasers.

"Good!" Said Cosmic after the Rebels have died.
"Let's keep going. Their Main Bridge shouldn't be too far. Let's move!" Yelled Cosmic.

The troopers nodded and followed Cosmic through the corridors.

If any of this doesnít make sense, itís because itís late and Iím tired
----------------------------------------
VEDJ Training Center Ė mSSD Mustang
----------------------------------------

Athran went to his respective team location; he knew that this would be a very difficult training mission considering the opponents. He sat and concentrated while Exar and Sirius fiddled with the droids. He sat and considered all the possibilities for the battle he could think of. He knew he would have to use his Army experience to aid him in this scenario. He drew his lightsaber and gave a couple swift cuts into the air; he then checked for his blaster, he knew he would have to use it. It was one area that his Army experience would come in handy.

He got up and went over to ExarKun and Sirius. They all glanced at each other and headed out to the battlefield. They all knew how the battle would have to be orchestrated. Prey on the weak and then double up on the strong. They all glanced one last time at the base to check the droids that were guarding it, and then headed off in a silent sprint looking for Talon.

They moved like raptors, each moved with such ease and grace that it was hard to believe they were filled with an undying hate. ExarKun took the point, and Sirius and Athran followed closely behind. Waiting for the moment when they could find Talon and take him down and then confront their all-powerful leader.

ĒDo you sense that?Ē said Exar telepathically.

ĒYes, one of the opposing team members is near,Ē replied Sirius.

Athran stood there, listening to his fellow team members and concentrating on how powerful the force level was. He grabbed his lightsaber in hand with his finger on the activation button. He glanced down to assure himself that his blaster was easily accessible. He looked forward to a battle with Talon, wanting to test his skills as a fellow Krath member. He left Exar and Sirius, and went in pursuit of Talon.

He could sense someone near him but just couldnít determine where exactly they were. He figured it were Talon because he knew Atrusís presence from previous encounters and could identify him if he was near. He let the force take over, sensing all that was around him, looking at terrain that could possibly give him an advantage over his opponent, and took into account all possible areas of which a sneak attack could come from.

He stood there with his eyes shut, deep in concentration, absorbing every sound, and waiting for the attack to come. He could sense the force getting constantly closer to him, as a shark stalks its prey, and then comes in for the strike. The force continually got closer to him, at one time he felt almost consumed by the power of the Jedi, he knew it wasnít Talon. He stood, still and concentrating, anticipating the first blow.

Atrus swung as swiftly towards Athranís head, Athran parried instinctively and opened his eyes. He saw his master standing infront of him, ready to deflect any attack that Athran came at him with. Athran stood there in a trance, adrenaline rushing towards every sense he had. The hate inside him fueling his adrenaline increasing his awareness ten fold. The grip he had on his saber could have crushed a manís hand; he was as ready for this battle as he would ever be. Athran swung first, towards Atrusís feet, he parried, and quickly struck at Athranís hand. He blocked, barely in enough time to keep his hand. The battle waged on, Atrus clearly restraining his force powers to keep the battle interesting. Finely Athran luckily singe Atrusís shirt. Atrus became infuriated with anger, he closed his eyes and tried to control himself, but couldnít. Athran stood there, in shock about what just happened, he tried to anticipate anything that Atrus could do, but knew that he would have to flee or submit. He watched as Atrus opened his eyes, they were like ambers of coal ready to ignite at the slightest hint of warmth. He could sense the force off of Atrus increase greater than he could have possibly imagined. Athran stood there, awaiting Atrus to make his next move.

Majere quietly stood just outside the viewing room of the VEDJ gym with his partner Sildrin. The space battle that he and Sildrin participated in had just finished with Kaph Squadron only taking minimal damage. At first Majere had planned on spending a romantic evening somewhere but for some reason he was drawn to the gym. As soon as Majere and Sildrin arrived they found the gym converted into a battle arena of some type. Six droids and two teams of jedi. Majere could sense Master Atrus drawing some of his powers within himself while utilizing the rest. "He needs to be taught a lesson in humility," said Majere with an evil stare. Although Sildrin was blind she could see things clearer than Majere, often times detecting danger long before he could. With an empty stare she seemed to be looking at Atrus as well, "He considers himself the best. That will be his downfall someday." With a slight nod both of them left to Majere's private research center.

Majere opened up a locked safe with the wave of his hand, "As you already know, once I left the Imperial Order I went searching for the secret to the Massassi Warriors. I came accross the spirit of Naga Sadow, where I battled and lost to him. Since I almost won he bestowed a few items to me along with the secret that I needed. In return I offered myself to him for anything that he required. However, I didn't break the secret until another spirit came to me." Sildrin was immediately surpised, "Marka Ragnos himself came to you?"
Majere smiled, "Well, I do not know for sure. I think that it was him and I believe it to be true. His spirit was stronger than Naga Sadow. He bestowed the final secrets to me that allowed me to complete my research. He also said something that alarmed me. He explained to me that it was not my life to give to Naga Sadow. That my life belonged to the Dark Side of the Force and that I will serve it before anything. He told me some other things, but those are irrelevant to what I want to accomplish right now. Ahh, here we are..."

Majere slowly pulled out a glowing amulet. Drawing the force around him and Sildrin so nobody, not even jedi, could hear them; Majere spoke to Sildrin. This amulet has not been identified by myself. I do not know all of it's powers but I do know that it has the power to give and take life, in addition to granting, or removing permanently the Force in anyone. However, giving and removing the force in someone is a power that should remain hidden. The power that I am most interested in is the ability to grant someone full use of their powers as if they had studied the force for decades. Majere smiled as he gave the small amulet to Sildrin, "Atrus knows that defeating me is an impossible task. I have no desire to waste either of our energy fighting for hours upon end. What I would like is for him to be taught a quick lesson. One that will hopefully show him that being cocky is not a positive trait in the force. I was once taken down by an apprentice when I let my guard down. This won't be as humbling an experience as that, but when he finds out that none of his powers are strong enough against you, even with his swords and staff, he will try to attack you with his lightsaber, perhaps even some weapons. The additional power will be immense, but the one that you should find a perticular liking to is the one of absorbtion. The energy of the blasters, lightsabers, or even lightbulbs will only make you stronger.

With a blank stare Sildrin put on the amulet, "With this much power are you sure you can trust me with this?"

Majere smiled as he softly kissed Sildrin, "I trust you with everything, even my life. I also feel that you need this moment to perhaps better explain the torment that you are currently going through. This should, hopefully, provide you with a release, even if it is only a temporary one. Besides, the items I possess here, including that amulet, are soul marked to me. I cannot leave them even if I wanted to."

As Sildrin walked out of the door and towards the gym Majere silently sat down. He never liked the items that he had in storage, that much power scared him to the core. Perhaps his fear was a curse from Marka Ragnos himself, or perhaps it was the non-force side of him that was so scared. Majere closed his eyes and with the power of translocate he soon found himself watching the jedi battle from the observation lounge. He noticed Sildrin, with lightsaber ignited entering the arena from just behind Master Atrus.
