Slogar and Thane pilot the ship away from the closing Boats with some fancy flying but one is able to close and opens fire on the ship followed up by a massive blast from the corvette. Daro and Vekis are able to blast one of the Skipray blast boats disabling it and frying the systems on another ship causing it to fall behind and they are able to jam a transmission calling for more ships before jumping to hyperspace.
During the hyperspace travel,Thane and Duncan do some minor repairs to the ship and work on installing the astromech into the ship, with a direct communication to Thanes avionics interface.
Caelium and Vekis meet in a room with Vekkis’s “pet”
Vekis explains to Caelium that he has reservations about working with the empire and does not like what happened to the planet. Caelium points out that Vader seemed to already had plans to blow up the planet even before they discovered the Jedi on the planet. Vekis thinks Thane may be trust worthy, but not certain of the others. He also says that if things keep going this way He plans to jump ship and disappear.
Thane receives a message from General Lassider, The group is commended on the mission and Vader is pleased “and it was a great blow for the empire, against illegal spice trade and enemies of the Empire” and forwards contact info to an agent ((Kell Pryde))on Nar Sharddaa.
After the message the group relizes that Snogga was sitting in the corner trying to not draw attention to himself, Caelium and Vekkis go over and ask him what he heard, “I didn’t hear anything, I have very bad hearing” they encourage him to forget and not repeat what he heard
Caelium goes and talks to the bounty hunter. They make some small talk before Caelium asks him some questions. Do you know of the Black Suns agent Winston, he says he was a Mandalorin. And rose through the ranks with Virgo the Hutt.
We came across an assassin, a Deful who killed one of the Jedi’s agents . Dex belives it is Warryk Gril he works for the Black Sun but not exclusively.
Caelium asks if he knows anything about the Javelin teams, he says and seems not to know about them. Caelium can tell he is not being totally honest,
Dex tells him, the assassin was paid by the Black Sun to kill Corso, who he didn’t really kill and that the group now has leverage over Warryk Gril against the Black Suns.
Caelium presses Dex to bring Warryk, Dex says he is happy to help but there is not much he could do without a ship or equipment. Celium decides to drug Dex again and asks Vekkis what they should do with the bounty hunters. Vekkis thinks they should hire him as
They arrive in the system and find this approach is not very busy Thane asks Duncan to find someone that can repair the ship, Duncan comes back with Shug Nix at the Space Barn in the Corelliun sector, Thane sets courses and has Duncan to send a message to Shug stating they want to meet to repair their ship They get a response “put down show up, and we will see what we can do”
They arrive into a slightly better part of the planet Duncan mentions to Thane that Shug is not a merchant so much as a criminal broker. Thane says “Then let us hope he doesn’t find out” he also tasks Duncan to do a search on the going rate of imperial munitions and supplies.
Thane pages Caelium to the bridge, and tells him about the shop and the supply list and the group sets out (minus Duncan who is going to watch the ship and finish working on the astromech droid and his video)
The group enters the shop, Thane leaves an open channel to the ship. They are greeted by a human female and a wookie who say” we don’t know you” Caelium says that they are part of Dex’s crew, the Wookie nods and they are given directions to another location that is not easy to maneuver to, but Thane thinks he can do it and it may even be fun.
They return to the ship and question Dex about Shug who says he is on good turns with him he says he is. So Thane takes the ship along the directions given, at first they fly towards a massive billbored that turns out to be a hologram. Inside they see several massive turbo lasers tracking them, further inside they find a massive complex which turns out to be the real “Space Barn” and running lights guide them into a select birth.
The birth connects to the ship and they are greeted by a Rodian and a humanoid with blue screen. Snowga rushes past and starts “whispering” to the Rodian about what has happened until Vekkis tells him to stop. Shug asks to see Dex, Daro goes to get him and tells him to behave. But Dex seems a lot more cocky now.
Dex goes and gives Shug a hug in greeting as Shug grins at Thane. Caelium provides a manifest of what the group has to trade, he grins again and says the items they have is imperial and so is the stuff inside Thanes head. The party is able to convince Shug that the equipment was stolen by the party and they hope not that they are with the empire.
They go into a bar and have a few drinks as Shug and Dex chat Thane talks to Snogar telling him that “they should be working together as we are hunting the same people but not to collect the bounty”
Shug meets with the party and it is revealed that the party is imperial agents and that they are looking for missing agents.
20000 credits worth of damage, it will cost about half the medical supplies and most of the weapon catch for the repairs.
Caelium asks about Kell Pride, Shug doesn’t know where he and hasn’t seen him in 6 months or so. He was snooping around looking for the shop but never found it or information on it as far as Shug knows, re recommends they look at either the Melt down café on level 88 of the Corellian sector or the Slag pit but it’s the most dangerous
