"So, what can I do for ya, Vance? You need someone killed, maimed or found? I offer a discount on thug hire if you're interested…"
"No, nothing like that," Jate said, leaning forward as the pair got down to business. "I need information on the most exploitable, dirty guard of the Republic prison facility holding those recently imprisoned pilots. Rogue Squadron members."
Chiv nodded, his fat rolling. "I see, I see. I can do that. How much you offering, security man? Because, ya know, the amount paid will determine the amount found… it's a very good exchange rate, after all, what with the planet economy and all…"

Panting, Elleck looked round. A one-desk office. Its one worker bent on the floor, cursing and holding his bleeding, possibly broken nose. The door in his back, like all the ones he’d seen in Salis D’aar Penitentiary’s administrative building, solid metal—designed to stand up to a mob of prisoners with a desire to kill.
A mob of prisoners, of course, was nothing compared to stormtroopers.
And for what Elleck planned now, as a last resort, he could not afford a witness.
Hectically, he yanked out his blaster and stunned Mr. Broken Nose. Then squatted down in front of the latter’s desk, produced the data-stick look-alike his contact had sent along with their forged ID-cards and plugged it in the according port on the back of the computer-terminal. ‘This device,’ the slicer had claimed, ‘might allow us remote access to the Penitentiary’s network—including any computer-controlled hardware.’

"I even found a man who represented a group who support Rogue Squadron. They're raising money for a full private investigative team to partner with the legal team in hopes of seeing Captain Antilles and rest exonerated as soon as possible. I told him they had our full cooperation and to ask for anything they needed. So you see, we do have allies."
"Wonderful. Are they also going to bribe the judge and buy a 'not guilty' verdict? 'Cause all the investigating in the world hasn't helped them so far."
"You could try to have a little optimism!"

"How long will you keep me here, Doctor?” Traven asked as they undertook another check up. The medic looked at his datapad, avoiding the Captain’s gaze. “You need to rest still.“ The doctor replied, his eyes still locked to the readings. Traven sighed, sitting up in his bed. “I can rest in my quarters.” Finally the other man looked at him. “I am not allowed to let you leave the sick bay, Captain. Orders from the Admiral.” The doctor turned around, taking a smaller datapad from a nearby table, handing it to Traven.
The Captain switched it on. Then his eyes widened as he began to read. An official indictment. They would court-martial him.

“Imperial military?” Perplexed, Corran looked over the buck-toothed humanoid, who oddly had on him a paceball glove which he was kneading in his both paws in obvious tension. “Frankly, Sir,” he then turned to face Matheron, “this doesn’t sound like your usual kidnapping. More like an official operation.”
Matheron swallowed, then looked him in the eyes. “You’re on the ball like your father. Sorry to say you’re correct: It is an official operation. But that does not make it right.”

Personnel wise, however, that was a different story. The Rogues were at less than fifty percent of their authorized strength, with most of the senior pilots out. Gavin even heard some scuttlebutt that some of the higher ups in Fleet Command, as well as some in the government, were floating the idea of disbanding the New Republic’s elite squadron.

”Drayen, Antilles, do you copy?” a voice addressed them. The two CorSec officers changed a look as Corran answered. “This is Antilles. Where’s our back-up? We were all alone at Turhaya, but need more officers for the search.” The voice over the radio tried to sound professional, but Corran heard the stress of the other man. “The order is cancelled. According to our Imperial liaison officer they have all necessary documents for their transport. He said that it’s ridiculous because the Empire has no need for sick children. Why should they kidnap them?” He hesitated shortly.“So the boss ordered all units back to their stations. Return as well. We have more important things for you to do than to hunt phantom kidnappers.”

Re: Past quotes of the weekMarch 14-27, 2011
Bypassed by all the major speedways, nor located on any of the major public transportation lines, the sector was accessed only by roads considered difficult to navigate even by Corellian standards. Hectares of drab, empty residential and commercial units hemmed in the Dreadnaughts’ rickety and rundown stadium, itself encircled by a dreary parking lot where weeds pushed their way through the cracked permacrete and deteriorating illumination poles stood watch as rusting sentinels.
Every few years, municipal or redevelopment authorities would announce a new program to “revitalize” the sector, releasing credits to entice residents and businesses to move into the district. The main attraction, of course, would be the excitement created by Corellia Dreadnaughts as they fought for the Galactic Series championship trophy.
Needless to say, things would fall apart. Rapidly. Spectacularly.

"I heard that he had an affair with the mistress of Dodonna. That’s why he’s sent here.” said the first one. “No, it’s because he sold weapons to the enemy.” Another one contradicted. “Whatever. I heard from my cousin who flew with him in the past that he’s more machine than man. Never showing any emotions.” The first replied. “I wonder if…”
“You wonder…” Traven asked in a low voice. “…how to act in attendance of a commanding officer?”

Re: Past quotes of the weekApril 11 - 25, 2011
Then a thought occurred to her. Green. Jordan inwardly mocked herself for using the term like that. She commanded Green Squadron, after all.
The deal that had allowed her to transfer to Bastion had placed her in charge of a squadron of rookie pilots. Yes, she was now Captain Jordan Lane, leader of Green Squadron, but that squad lived up to its name. It was like a joke, though she did not believe the Empire capable of such a thing. Either those in command had wished to break her, to force a reason for a demotion or transfer, or they did not want her in their more elite squadrons. She had been the executive officer of the Paladins, after all, and they must have wished to avoid downplaying the Paladin name. They had given her a higher rank, and her own squadron, but it just had to be Green.

I mean, he's reassigned, and then I'm reassigned to his planet, and now to his squadron? Serendipity or the hand of someone above me, I don't know…and I don't care. Dunn was a good officer for as long as I was with him, and if I have to be under someone, it might as well be him and not the guy I'm under right now. Laid-back, easygoing…not an Imperial at all.
“Understood, sir.” I said, and then I saluted. He saluted back, and then I left, with Harinck in tow. We had to leave soon. Good. I hate waiting.

Re: Past quotes of the week"Hey, Captain Lane, you served with the Black Paladins, right?" one of the Banisher's officers called out when they were about halfway through their meals.
"I did. Why do you ask?"
"They're an elite group of pilots, right?" He jabbed his fork in the air. "But I heard that their captain crashed on Bakura!"
One of the other officers reprimanded the man for being so forthright, but Jordan did not notice. Her mind had frozen. Traven… crashed?
Byron made a mental note of Jordan's reaction. "Where'd you hear about that?" he replied to cover up her silence.

Re: Past quotes of the weekJune 6 - 26, 2011
If you were an Imperial and you wanted a career as a Stormtrooper or a pilot, you’d wish to go here. Some kids found it easy with family connections, others had to fight tooth and nail to get where they needed to go. Some couldn’t, and wished they could. Little Imperial children dream to get here, and almost every enlisted Stormtrooper and pilot would kill to get here. I’m sure some of the people who I’ve met here probably did kill to get here. But make no mistake about freshmen and older; this is a military college. You have cliques. That’s normal.

Re: Past quotes of the weekJune 27 - July 18, 2011
The frontmost speeder hooted in approval when, alerted by the turn the argument was taking, an older of the bunch, from his looks an athletic coach, languidly walked up to them. Tall, buff and square-shouldered in his dark blue jacket, he crossed his arms in front of Matheron and eyed him with a smirk. „Why should we?“ He asked smugly. „The Empire rules by now and it is only a matter of time until CorSec will be disbanded.“
Matheron sized him up in turn. „Possibly. But that time hasn’t come yet.“ With a practised Sabbacc face, he leant in to the newcomer. „Listen, smart aleck,“ he addressed him, his voice threateningly low, „I spent the past weeks having my officers swat double shifts to see to the safety of your victory parades—and save you guys’ wagyx whereever the likes of you cut a caper and provoked a mob. If, in two weeks or so, one of you guys will be drafted to that bitch of a job: Good. For now though, I am vested with every power necessary to keep up current law.“ Of course, the latter was a stark lie. He wasn’t. No experienced officer ever would have called CorSec’s powers sufficient. And perhaps, at this time, Matheron thought with an edge of fear, he was no longer listed as an officer, either—but had been added to some dubious list like he himself had maintained, of problems pending.
If that was the case, however, luckily this blue jacket did not yet seem to know. „You'd better watch out!“ he just hissed, scowling. „Real soon now, you’ll have to answer for your gall.“

Re: Past quotes of the weekJuly 19 - 24, 2011
Two pilots had illicit…dirty holos hidden underneath their cot, but otherwise, they had clean rooms that met the standards of the drill code for cleanliness. I stood in front of the two pilots and held their holos in my hands and made eye contact with each of them, making sure my voice was clear. Serendipity is kind of funny; the only people I had a problem with were the last group to be inspected, and I could fix this without having them be marked down on the inspection.
“No more of this. I don't want to ever see something like this again. If I even suspect a rumor about you two with this stuff, I’ll make sure the Captain hears about it…and trust me, you would much rather deal with me than him. Understood?” I said in a clear, understanding tone as they stood at the position of attention at their bunks. They quickly nodded. Looking at them, I took out the holo-chip out of the holo programs and broke them, before throwing them into the nearby plastic trashcan they kept in their room. It was practically empty in the first place.

“Where are you taking us?” Corran heard Han complain, before he could see him being dragged along by one guard. “You are transferred to another prison. The NRI thinks it’s too dangerous to keep all of you at one place.” The security officer explained. “Stop giving them that much information.” The other guard, who was escorting Marcus, snapped at his colleague. “Have you forgotten our orders?”

“Lieutenant Aganox, request your permission to the flight deck.” The comlink. Damn that infernal machine. I was actually hoping to talk with the new Captain, who I was not at all surprised that the only person who I could really call my friend outranked me.
Good for her. Woman in a man's world, blah blah blah. I don't care if her parts are inside or outside; she's someone I can trust with my back, and I can count how many people I trust like that on the back of my index finger.
I know, that's not funny.

"Well, yes, sort of, I'm actually a journalist. I wrote an article in the Freeworlds Today on the trial, condemning it and your sentence to exile. Absolutely preposterous that someone like you could be accused of murdering that woman…and then sentenced by your own father, Judge Seraph." An old anger burned in the Mrlssi's eyes. "A great tragedy, a great tragedy."
"Yeah, well… I got over it," said Mikhail glumly, ignoring the skeptical look Sevi gave him. "Spent a good couple of years in exile getting over it. I worked in the medical field on Fondor for a bit as a paramedic… But I -ah… ran into some Imperial trouble. Not a big fan of the Imps," he stopped and gave Sevi a crooked grin caused by the dead nerves in his lower lip. "So I came here…"
Sasevi nodded. "It is much the same for me. Imperials have no respect for the freedom of the press."
"But the New Republic Army?"
Sasevi shrugged, "What can I say? The posters got to me."

"Phew! Crazy," the teen muttered under her breath as she cast one last look back down the hall she had just been exploring. Now she really wanted to know what was at the end of that long, dark and dank hall. But she knew all too well about the saying of curiosity killing the womprat. Mouse had no desires to traverse that creepy hall again no matter how much she wanted to open the proverbial Palpatine's box. Still, there were other creepy hallways to wander down so Mouse chose the one that appeared to be the seemingly least foreboding.

Cell 2-B, a disgruntled human whom looked almost four men too heavy, carving away at a small idol wooden toy with a blunt instrument, tattoos covering his entire upper frame. Cell 3-B?
