Star Wars: Edge of the Empire

The Screams
From the Secret Journal Of Rash Atticus

Every day this stolen ship plunges deeper and deeper into the heart of the galaxy, and every day I grow farther and farther apart from the Star Team.

My time with Skraw and Kess and MaBeno seems unbearably distant, unbearably brief. We saved each other lives* a dozen times over; so often that we barely realized what a great time we were having as we did it. As I look forward to what will almost certainly be my death at the hands of Imperial Torture-bots, as I endure and recover from the endless major surgeries needed to help me escape identification by the forces that stand guard at the galactic core, my betrayal of the team seems at times so cruel and useless that I hork up my lunch all over the place.

Does the team still live? Did they escape Cholganna? When I travelled with them, I dreamt always of Jonuna Showany. Now, without them, I dream only of their screams.

I also really should have deleted my browser history in R4-W9.

*In Skraw’s case, we saved an empty husk of a simulated pseudo-life.

“Why, you slimy double-crossing, no good swindler!”
—Lando Calrissian

In the aftermath of the battle at The Retreat, the crew of the Krayt Fang has been scattered across the galaxy. Rash Atticus has disappeared in the Krayt Fang along with Cratala and Lyn Tura Rand in an all but hopeless mission to rescue his beloved, the pirate vixen Jonuna Showanny, from Imperial Inquisitors in the Galactic Core. Meanwhile, the slicer-droid Skraw, carrying a backpack full of Cratala’s valuable research, was severely damaged and captured after being blasted from his speeder while attempting to break through the imperial lines. MaBeno Raysinger and Kess Dantares, equipped with still-operational jetpacks, fled the battle into the jungle only to find that the Krayt Fang had been stolen. They discovered a bewildered R4-W9 in the clearing where they had left the ship, but it wasn’t long before The Nightflyer, the Yiyar Clan’s YT-2400 freighter, caught up with them. The Rodians made them an offer they couldn’t refuse: escape with them or be left at the mercy of the Empire or the horrors of Cholganna’s jungles.
Will Rash survive his mission and return to properly apologize? Will Skraw ever be rescued and reassembled? Will MaBeno and Kess FINALLY kiss?

In the nearby Corva Sector, not terribly far from Cholganna and the edge of Wild Space, a small rebel contingent maintains a secret facility hidden deep within a mesa on an otherwise deserted planet: Titan Base. Four new rebel recruits were sent to rendezvous at Titan Base for their first mission: Saldau Turan, an Ithorian grooming himself for advancement as an officer, two Wookiee brothers, Snokata and Gortatha, one a brainy mechanic and the other a formidable soldier, and finally a mouthy Bothan female named Cay-See Lya Lya, covert ops specialist.

After a few minutes exploring Titan Base, which turned out to be a relatively small facility housing an X-Wing unit known as Nightmare Squadron, the four recruits were taken to the command center for their mission briefing. Commander Elemack, the Mon Calamari base commander, jaw-flapped to them the details of their mission. They were to infiltrate a nearby Imperial orbital station called The Hammer where Alliance Command believed a piece of dangerous new technology was being housed called “Project: Shellcracker.” Using information from intercepted Imperial communiques, Commander Elemack believed that Shellcracker was some kind of ship with a new weapon that could devastate the Rebels. He admitted to the new recruits that they were not his first choice; the previous Special Ops team that was normally stationed at Titan Base had disappeared during a previous mission. With Alliance resources stretched thin after their retreat from Yavin, Rebel Command had no choice but to assign fresh recruits and send them into the fray.

To infiltrate The Hammer, the team would be supplied with an Eta-Class shuttle that had previously been recommissioned by the Empire and used as an Imperial survey vessel. Lord Vader, hungry to discover the new location of the Alliance Central Command after Yavin, has sent many such vessels and probes throughout the galaxy. This vessel, renamed The Emperor’s Vision, stumbled upon a rebel cell and was captured by the Alliance. Mission updates were forged and sent to the Imperial officers overseeing the survey team to cover the tracks of the missing vessel. Thus, the team at Titan Base could use The Emperor’s Vision to board The Hammer, steal the Shellcracker prototype, and escape. If necessary, they could call in the help of Nightmare Squadron to cover their escape.

The team agreed to the mission and began to prepare for departure, but they were soon approached by Jayce Terril, ace pilot and leader of Nightmare Squadron, who requested that they let him accompany them. Concerned that a completely non-human crew would look suspicious posing as an Imperial survey team, Jayce suggested that they let him pose as the survey team’s pilot. Not wanting to lose his best pilot, Commander Elemack had told Terril that he could go on the mission only if the rest of the team agreed. After a brief conference, they welcomed Jayce to the mission.

Before leaving they were also approached by Lieutenant B’Wek, a female Twi’lek weapons officer and Sorren, a Sullustan who served as Chief Engineer. They offered the team several pieces of equipment. Impressed by Cay-See’s marksmanship during a spat with Gortatha at the shooting range, Lt. B’Wek lent the Bothan her own blaster, a glistening weapon of superior quality. The two officers also gave the team a Comm Jammer, a dismantled blaster carbine, a prototype magnetic lock pick, and an R2 unit inside of which was hidden three specialized charges designed to unhinge locked down hangar or blast doors. Soon afterwards, the team was ready to go.

After a short and uneventful trip through hyperspace, the team reached The Hammer. After an awkward conversation with hangar security over the comm system, they were admitted into the freight hangar. Unable to come up with a consistent or properly fleshed out lie, the team had a tense conversation with the Imperial officer who greeted them. Saldau, Gortatha, and Snokata had been placed in binders while Jayce and Cay-See posed as the survey team and claimed to have captured them. Cay-See spoke abrasively to the officer after being asked some routine questions which raised some eyebrows, but ultimately the ruse came off successfully and the team was directed to the detention facility to dispose of the captured beings.

They didn’t go directly to the detention facility, however, instead deciding to explore the machine shop near the hangars, with Snokata gaining entry by fiddling with the lock. Fortunately, the Chief Machinist was away and they found a workshop full of deactivated droids and a single activated R4 unit who had been heavily restrained. The R4 unit showed signs of wear and tear, was covered in mud and vines, and clearly had not had a memory wipe in a long while. It was surly and abusive when questioned. Exploring further, they entered the machinist’s office and discovered a pile of blasted and dismantled droid parts on the machinist’s desk. Snokata went to the machinist’s computer and read his work logs and discovered that the droid on the desk had been dropped off two days ago by an Imperial Security Bureau vessel called The Deep Dark. The machinist’s attempts to download the droid’s memory were unsuccessful—some kind of high-level encryption protected the unit’s central processor and memory cache. Obviously the work of an accomplished slicer. The R4 unit in the other room had the same type of memory encryption, it had been picked up on the same planet and claimed to be the other droid’s friend. Further exploring the machinist’s office, the team opened a locker and discovered a backpack with a mysterious Clone War’s era data pad, a modified blaster with a cable attachment, a helium grenade, and a tattered green duster.

Knowing they would have to report to the detention center soon so as not to arouse suspicion, the team left the droids in the machine shop and proceeded to the elevator to the detention level. With the Ithorian and two Wookiees in binders they were easily admitted into the detention facility, which appeared to be rather makeshift, with three cells in a small brig area and a larger cell in an adjoining room. There were six total security personnel in the detention center and they ushered them in and opened the door to the larger cell. At this point, the team exchanged glances and decided it was time to act.

The battle broke out with Saldau emitting an ear-shattering Ithorian bellow in the direction of one of the security guards, and the guard staggered to the floor immobilized. Snokata then rushed to one of the nearby computer consoles and activated the comm jammer, preventing the guards from contacting reinforcements. He also, in the same swift move, accessed the door-locking system and isolated two of the guards in the large cell. Meanwhile, Cay-See, Jayce, Saldua, and Gortatha engaged in a desperate shootout with the guards. As one of them ran to the elevator to get help, Cay-See gunned him down. Midway through the battle, Snokata opened the small cell doors and released two of the prisoners and the team tossed one of them a weapon. The guards trapped in the cell soon threatened to kill the prisoners within if they refused to open the door. The team refused, needing time to finish off the remaining guards. Eventually, the they opened the door to take out the remaining guards but they were too late, they had already killed one of the prisoners. In revenge, the team quickly mowed down the last two guards.

In the calm that followed the battle, Jayce Terril introduced the prisoners as the missing Spec Ops team from Titan Base. The prisoner who was killed was Wettan Garn, a female human weapon specialist. Also among them were Yotuu, a badly wounded Gotal procurement specialist, Llek Huron, droid specialist, and Nattus and Ty Breely, two cousins. Nat was the leader and pilot and Ty was a suspected force sensitive and for this reason had been unharmed by the Imperials.

An extensive conversation followed about what the next move should be, with so many personnel needing to escape The Hammer and little time before the next guard shift began in the detention center. The group eventually stealthily made their way back to the machine shop to hide while Jayce and Cay-See, the only ones in the group who would not be recognized as prisoners, made their way into Main Engineering to access the computers. Despite Snokata’s expert advice over short-range com links stolen from the security guards, Jayce and Cay-See had trouble accessing the computers and Jayce gave up and returned to the machine shop. Cay-See stayed and took a really long time but eventually was able to temporarily disable the tractor beam. But only a few minutes remained before the shift would change in detention and an alert would be sounded throughout The Hammer

REMEMBER WHEN?
From the Secret Journal Of Rash Atticus

Dear Space Diary,

Remember one time we went to that one planet to try and find a bunch of technology in an old ship from back in the day, and it was a jungle planet and some Nexu showed up and I murdered them? And Skraw was trying to climb up something to get away but you know how that goes. He needs to get some jump boots or some shit.

And then like an idiot I skinned the nexu and got covered in blood. I remember Mabeno gave me this look like: you are gross. When you’re an adult, it’s not like you don’t get hurt feelings. You just get better at covering them up.

What do I even want a nexu skin for???

Later we were leaving the ruins of the ship and we got cornered by some cyborg nexu. That was bullshit.

RIP Lokba the Hutt

“I don’t charm. I coerce.” —Rash Atticus

Finding themselves choking to death due to a poisonous gas in Lokba the Hutt’s booby-trapped trophy chamber, our heroes managed to come to their senses and escape, with Skraw grabbing the mysterious hingeless box that was the chamber’s centerpiece. Rash Atticus, having never lost consciousness, was able to heroically carry an unconscious Kess Dantares and avoid a brawny looter while Skraw dragged MaBeno to safety and then locked the door.

It wasn’t long before the team realized that Kel Kaethal, the Bothan pilot they had befriended, was nowhere to be found. As the smell of smoke on the floor above reminded them of the peril of their friend R4-W9, they made their way to the east stairwell where a thermal detonator had apparently destroyed the stairs. Kess and Rash were able to climb up the twisted durasteel bars jutting out from the detonated stairway, while MaBeno and Skraw could not muster the strength and would have to find another way up.

Finding themselves on the third floor, Kess and Rash spotted Kel Kaethal at the opposite end of the hall looking down into the west elevator shaft, while near him was the slumped figure of one of Lokba’s wookiee bodyguards. A fire raged behind him, engulfing most of the western half of the third floor. Kess stealthily hid herself in a doorway while Rash brashly marched down the hall and attempted to intimidate Kel. Kel repeatedly warned Rash to halt but he would not, and the Bothan was forced to open fire, first sending a pair of blaster shots into the elevator shaft saying “Teemo sends his regards” and then firing on Rash, blasting him in the thigh. By this time, Skraw and MaBeno had realized that the east elevator had been repaired by Kel while everyone was in the trophy chamber and arrived at the third floor. Everyone opened fire on Kel despite his attempts to flee into the flames. With Kel Kaethal dead, Skraw immediately pounced on his corpse to retrieve his cool harpoon gun. Upon peering into the elevator shaft, our heroes found the greasy and bloated body of Lokba the Hutt. Evidently, Kel had been sent by Teemo the Hutt of Tatooine to double-cross Lokba and assassinate him.

Not long afterwards, R4-W9 was found cowering in the east tower and he was overjoyed to see Skraw and also the other three. He explained that Lokba’s employees had revolted after his failure to pay them. He had been deeply in debt to Teemo and a number of other Hutts and his debts had finally caught up with him. It now being unnecessary to deliver the money that the crew had beaten out of the miner’s on Gavos, they set a course for the wheel to settle their debt for the Krayt Fang with Damon Paris.

Last Resorts

“Smells like a Bothan. If we’re looking to get any work done we’ve come the wrong place. If we’re looking to get stabbed in the back we’ve come to the right one.” —Rash Atticus

The crew of the Krayt Fang made its way back through hyperspace from the mining station on Gavos to Lokba the Hutt’s headquarters on Aduba III. Over the course of the long journey, MaBeno Raysinger received some sad news: his parents, two Twi’lek diplomats living on Coruscant, had been found dead in their home. At first reluctant to share this information with his companions, with a little bit of coaxing and some Corellian Brandy he let slip that he had come from an important political family on the Twi’lek homeworld of Ryloth. MaBeno had run afoul of the Empire in the past, and suspected that the death of his parents was not a natural one, as the Galactic News Network had claimed.

The Krayt Fang soon slipped into realspace in the Aduba system, but due to an astrogation error, the ship was flung into the path of a comet which nicked its hull. No further damage was done, however, thanks to the expert piloting of Kess Dantares.

Just moments later, in orbit over Aduba III, the ship picked up a coded distress call from R4-W9. Though Skraw had difficulty in decrypting the message, it seemed clear that trouble had occurred at Lokba’s resort and R4 was desperate for help. The crew quickly proceeded to the planet’s surface.

Using the ships sensors, the team was able to discern that R4 had holed up in the northeast tower of the resort. They landed the ship and began to investigate the palace courtyard where they found a few bodies but were unable to get in through the main entrance, instead having to enter through the sewer passageway.

Wanting to find the helpless droid as quickly as possible, the crew quickly made their way through the sewer system below the resort. Discovering an electronically locked door in the basement, however, they decided to investigate further and stumbled upon two glitterstim addicts, Ti-Tiro and Glem, who were bingeing on the cratefuls of the drug that had been previously delivered to Lokba by the Krayt Fang’s crew. The two junkies informed the team that many of Lokba’s servants, upset by his failure to pay their wages, had started a skirmish a few hours before. MaBeno, covetous of Glem and Ti’Tiro’s backpacks, attempted to threaten them by dumping out the backpacks and using coercive language. They were unphased by these threats and tense scene ensued, with the crew ultimately agreeing to buy the backpacks from them.

They then proceeded up a stairwell where they came upon a familiar Bothan named Kel Kaethal who worked as a pilot for Lokba and had just returned to the resort from Tatooine. He seemed as confused as they were about the state of the resort, which appeared to be in grave disarray. Kaethal agreed to accompany them to find Lokba.

The crew then made their way to the bathhouse on the first floor. Because the elevators appeared to be broken, they resolved to use the bathhouse balcony to access the second floor. Fortunately, Kel Kaethal had a cable attachment to his blaster and was able to climb up to the balcony, where the sounds of blaster fire could be heard. Rash Atticus and MaBeno were able to climb the cable. Skraw and Kess, after several embarassing attempts, failed to climb it and resolved to find another way up.

Kaethal, Rash, and MaBeno then found themselves in the middle of a hallway firefight between a group of dissenters and a pair of Lokba’s Wookiee bodyguards. Unable to get Kel Kaethal to choose a side, Rash and MaBeno eventually began firing on the Wookiees who became enraged and charged them. Meanwhile, Skraw and Kess made their way up the west stairwell and managed to convince the dissenters to unbarricade the stairwell door and join them on the second floor.

After a tense bout of combat in which Rash was nearly strangled to death, the Wookiees were eventually defeated and the gang of looters was able to make their way across the hall to Lokba’s trophy room, where several valuable objects were said to be kept. Kess Dantares was particularly interested in an old jedi weapon that was allegedly displayed there. After breaking into the trophy room the looters found a hingeless box on a pedestal in the center of the room, as well as a slew of other artifacts from the period before the rise of the Empire. Upon touching the pedestal, however, a mysterious red mist began to permeate the room and Kess, MaBeno, and most of the looters fell to the floor unconscious…

Race Against Time

“I’m no one’s FUCKING droid. Call me someone’s droid again and you’re dead.” —Skraw

Having escaped the clutches of a menacing load lifter droid at the entrance to the Gavos mineshafts, the crew descended into the darkness of the tunnels. It wasn’t long before they came upon a waystation deep within the mine that was full of terrified miners. Led by the Mining Chief, a human named Marv Moray, the surviving miners had holed up at the waystation after receiving an ominous call from one of their associates on the surface that ended in blaster-fire and static. The miners had become increasingly nervous as a series of broken intercom alerts had informed them that the storm barrier generators were being disabled one by one.

Comparing notes, Marv and the crew of the Krayt Fang deduced that the station’s Storm IV Cloud Car had been taken by the pilot droid called “Lookout” who was disabling the storm barrier generators in an effort to destroy the energy field that held Gavos’ toxic storms at bay. Realizing that they had very little time, the crew decided to make a run for their ship and go out into the atmosphere and destroy the Cloud Car.

As they hurried back to the surface with the surviving miners close behind, the team found the station deserted—the mutinous droids had already departed with the broken pieces of their leader EV-8D3, having stolen the gun-runner’s tiny freighter on landing pad B. Kess, MaBena, and Rash made a mad dash for the Krayt Fang with two of the surviving miners while Skraw stayed behind to demand that Marv Moray open the safe containing the mining station’s assets.

Sensors were able to pick up the signature of the Cloud Car through the storm and MaBeno made short work of the Lookout’s ship in a single blast of laser fire from the Krayt Fang’s guns. Meanwhile, Skraw began to haggle with Marv Moray about what was to be done with the 165,000 credits in the safe under his desk, as Lokba the Hutt had demanded that the crew return with 100,000 credits in mining profits.

The rest of the crew then joined Skraw in the chief’s office where Marv complained that the workers were underpaid and that almost all of their droids had escaped or been destroyed and would need to be replaced. It would be impossible, he said, to pay Lokba the required amount and still keep the mine running. Wanting as much of the money as possible, the team argued that the miners owed them their lives and had little room to bargain. With the exception of Kess, the crew quickly became cruel with Marv. Skraw repeatedly backhanded the old miner for implying that he was property. MaBeno, despite having promised to control himself, returned to form and attempted to murder Marv, being prevented only in the last moment by the fast reflexes of Kess Dantares. Broken, Marv finally acquiesced and told them to take the money, calling them “pirates” and spitting out his own bloody teeth. In a gesture of what nobody could reasonably refer to as kindness, the crew left Gavos with only 141,000 of the credits, leaving 24,000 to pay for the miner’s wages and possible passage off of the nightmarish planet.

The crew then debated about their next move: would they return to Aduba III to pay Lokba the Hutt or proceed directly to The Wheel where they imagined themselves winning a high-stakes sabacc tournament? They eventually opted to return to the Hutt, hoping to negotiate some kind of release from Lokba’s service, and a course was set for Aduba III

Robot Revolt!

“Move fast. It’s only a matter of time before we’re suckin’ on ammonium nitrate.” —Rash Atticus

The Krayt Fang made its way from Formos through Hutt Space to the tiny mining world of Gavos. During the day and half of travel time, the crew was able to heal some of their wounds and further bond as a team. The trip passed otherwise without incident and they were soon in view of the swirling yellow-green clouds of Gavos’ toxic atmosphere.
Upon arriving on the surface, however, the crew quickly realized that their mission to Gavos was anything but a routine investigation of the mining operation’s value. MaBeno Raysinger agreed openly that he would curb his penchant for rash behavior on this mission, and the crew proceeded slowly from the landing pad into the small mining station, the tiny planet’s only structure. They were surprised to find that the station was eerily deserted, and the only detectable life signs appeared to be many kilometers below the surface. Despite the slicer-droid Skraw’s attempts to hurry the party along, the crew proceeded slowly from room to room, rifling through desks, cabinets, and personal belongings and taking any credits they could find. It was not long before they discovered several dead bodies, some crammed into refreshers and four corpses completely unhidden, apparently killed by blaster-fire at a table in the station’s canteen while a rudimentary cook droid went about his business, oblivious to the macabre spectacle before him.
The crew also came upon a deactivated reception droid that they struggled to bring back online. He called himself 3D-4K and could not explain the strange state of affairs, claiming that the last thing he could recall was a conversation with the taskmaster droid EV-8D3 about droid performance. Clearly confused, 3D-4K agreed to come along with the team.
Exploring the station further, they discovered the mine chief’s office which contained a computer that Skraw was able to hack into and locate some ominous security footage. They also discovered a safe that allegedly contained 165,000 credits, the current total assets of the Gavos mine. They were unable to open it. They also found, on the station’s secondary landing bay, a small freighter which contained empty crates apparently used to smuggle weapons. At the same time, they began to hear a series of frightening automated intercom messages telling them that the station’s storm barriers were being compromised one by one.
Eventually, the crew reached the cargo room and mine entrance, which was filled with unarmed droids moving crates. Skraw was sent in alone to communicate with them, where he was questioned by the taskmaster droid EV-8D3. Skraw lied to EV-8D3, telling him that his companions in the other room were droids, but when two humans and a Twi’lek burst in, Skraw’s clumsy deception was revealed and the droids drew blasters from various hiding places and began firing them. A massive gunfight ensued, quickly leaving 3D-4K dead. In addition to several standard battledroids, EV-8D3 utilized a pair of large load lifter droids to bludgeon our heroes to near unconsciousness. As the tide of battle turned, EV and a few surviving droids attempted to retreat back into the mining station, but taskmaster was gunned down by MaBeno in a final volley of laser fire. Still pursued by one of the heavily armored load lifters, the crew decided to cut their losses and retreat into the mine as a fourth storm barrier generator went offline…

Return to Formos

Licking their wounds from the abuse they had sustained at the hands of C3-P9, the crew made their way back through the hyperlane connecting the Aduba and Formos systems. The Krayt Fang docked at the Formos Spaceport and the crew purchased a significant amount of fuel from spaceport control, ostensibly in preparation for the long trip to The Wheel. Badly in need of repairs, Scraw opted to remain with the ship and make use of the tools in the Number Two Hold.
Kess, Rash, and MaBeno took along Roo Bee Rey and were not long in getting into trouble on the streets of the Formos Spaceport. Perhaps still adjusting to the arid climate of Formos, Kess and Rash failed to notice as MaBeno disappeared into an alleyway. They found him moments later with a vibroknife slash across his chest and at the mercy of Snoo, the Formos infochant. The Devaronian had previously been a Zann Consortium contact for MaBeno and was attempting to blackmail him, demanding credits in exchange for keeping silent about MaBeno and Rash’s whereabouts. The crew agreed to pay him off, buying themselves one hour on Formos before Snoo contacted his associates. In the confusion, however, Roo Bee Rey managed to escape.
Further trouble followed at the Formos town square. The crew spotted Zukata Netakka amid a group of rough-looking Rodians, a few of whom then grabbed her and took off on a pair of Flare-S Swoop Bikes. Knowing they would have to act fast, the crew grabbed a couple of speeders of their own which appeared to belong to the same group of Rodians. A chase ensued through the dry and rugged canyon leading out into the Formos Wastes during which MaBeno and Kess were able to overtake the speeder that had taken Zukata. Rash Atticus disabled the other speeder allowing him the opportunity to physically and verbally abuse its pilot, and learned that the Rodians were members of the violent Yiyar Clan. Having been apprised of the situation via comlink, Scraw piloted the Krayt Fang out of the spaceport and in a heroic maneuver was able to block the exit to the canyon and give Zukata an opportunity to jump off of the swoop before it disappeared into a distant copse.
As the dust settled, Zukata and Godon Netakka were reunited and Zukata gratefully paid the crew for her brother’s safe return. Abashed, Godon departed with his sister. Having finished their errand, the crew took the Krayt Fang into orbit and prepared for the journey to Gavos, there to investigate Lokba’s newly acquired oridium mine.

Trouble on the Krayt Fang

The crew woke from their suites in Lokba the Hutt’s resort headquarters and prepared for a final audience before leaving Aduba III. As our heroes met in the hallway, however, it became clear that the man calling himself Rycar Ryjerd was not himself and seemed disoriented and barely able to speak. In Lokba’s audience chamber, the Hutt informed the crew that he had outfitted the Krayt Fang with a number of supplies and amenities and wished them a pleasant journey to the mine on Gavos. The plucky astromech R4-W9, wishing to see Bandin Dobah put to justice, opted to stay on Aduba III but promised to rejoin the crew should they return in a few weeks.
On the way back to the ship, it was revealed that MaBeno Raysinger had drugged Rycar the previous night and questioned him under pressure from the Zann Consortium, a powerful crime syndicate. Rycar Ryjerd, whose real name is Rash Atticus, has a murky history with Tyber Zann and MaBeno had been sent to apprehend him. Angry with Raysinger, Atticus attempted to strike the shifty Twi’lek but the fight was broken up by Kess and Scraw. Apologizing for his betrayal, MaBeno offered to share some of the credits he had accrued from cooperating with the Consortium and a tentative understanding was reached among the crew members.
No sooner had they entered the Krayt Fang when they were set upon by the droid C3-P9, evidently an agent of the Zann Consortium posing as a translator for Lokba, along with two powerful battledroids. C3-P9 ordered MaBeno to take the disruptor pistol from Kess and bind her and Scraw while he dealt with Rash Atticus. Deciding that there was no time for ruses, MaBeno immediately fired his weapon. A dangerous skirmish ensued, during which the battledroids were killed and C3-P9 was gunned down by MaBeno as he tried to escape. Scraw was also seriously damaged, requiring massive repairs, and the inner door of the Krayt Fang airlock was destroyed. As more battledroids appeared around the ship, the crew decided to take off and make their way back to Formos, there to negotiate the return of Godon Netakka to his sister Zukata…
