Duncan begins to setup the command codes for the new ship, while the new crew comes aboard
Also Duncan and Thane plot an astrogation course to where they believe their friends are located
They first jump into Tosste system, they are warned that the Iska Pirates work out of that area
The system is very busy, until they jump in then a bunch of ships begin to jump out
Believing they are Imperials the local space station hails, Rhia disguised as an Imperial Officer, responds they are looking for ain’t misbehaving and is willing to offer a reward for information
Not getting any information, they jump to next point they believe they jumped to, they do find some debris from there ship also background radiation from a very large ship that jumped to hyperspace
Thane has a realization that they had the fighter that could jump and get help, they do a U turn and head back to Tosste
They don’t detect the x-wing but do see a bunch of tiny vessels around the moon then they begin to disappear into the other ship. that is very large ship, made to look like a smaller one
They realize it is Tarkin’s stolen ship, the Carrion Spike and seems to be guarding the moon, They hail the ship, a rugged handsome man answers, Thane recognize him a former republic intelligence captain Berch Teller, who Thane had met before on several missions
He recognizes Thane and greets him, they let him know they are not imperials and in fact were on Eridu at the same time “blowing shit up”
They decide to meet on the moon to talk on route they get a com burst from the moon on their frequency but all static
The moon looks like it is a mining base, but on the inside, is a pirate base and repair centre, inside is the teams X-Wing with Voss making repairs
Teller lands in an imperial shuttle and they all catch up until they get a bad feeling that Vader has made the system they quickly tell Berch to meet them in Naboo in a weeks time and they can chat further.
The Imperials hail Higher Ground, and Daro stalls them until Rhia can make the command deck to bluff them further
Rhia is able to bluff them into thinking they are imperial vessel and are ordered to stop the Carrion spike they fire across the nose but not trying to hit them but look like they are until they can jump out, to their surprise Vader’s ship jumps onto their location nearly destroying their ship, but thanks to Thane’s quick reflexes they are able to dodge out of the way, and make the jump into hyperspace.
They take a round about way to get to Ain’t Misbehaving, seeing it is not flyable they take all the crew and Zoe off the ship and hide it on a asteroid till they can get parts and make repairs, and then head off to meet up with the rebellion
