Cast of Characters
The team of Nova, Karsyx and Tatcher find themselves in a stolen Imperial Lambda-Class shuttle. The made the hyperspace jump away from Lothal, just as the Empire occupied it, successfully. Karsyx was able to successfully disable the shuttle’s transponder so that the Empire would not be able to track them. Now they sit in an unremarkable point in space and discussing where to go next. They review the bounty sheet for Tresc and the last known activity was that they hijacked a shipment of supplies that was headed towards the colony on Nystixia, which was rumored to be friendly to the Rebellion. Nova made the decision to travel there and start the investigation.
The coordinates were put into the navicomputer and they made the jump. However, when they drop out of hyperspace, they spot an Empire star destroyer in orbit. The Empire was already here! The destroyer hailed the shuttle on comms about their intentions and to turn on their transponder immediately. The team had the droid perform these actions and sent over its identification. The information was accepted, but when further pushed on why the transponder was turned off, things started to turn bad. The droid, which the team designated as B1-7C(h), was an Imperial droid and loyal to the Empire. It informed the destroyer of what was going on and was instructed to head to towards the capital ship and dock. The droid started to do this, but Karsyx tried to slice into the droid to reprogram it. This failed, so Nova blasted it with her blaster and destroyed the droid.
Just before the shuttle could get into tractor beam range, they quickly made the jump to a nearby “safe” location to get away. They ended up in another unremarkable point in space. Now they have decided they need to get rid of this shuttle before it causes any further issues. Nova knows of a trader on Tattooine that may purchase the ship and have some available to purchase. They went ahead and set the coordinates and made the jump to Tattooine.
During the hyperspace travel, Karsyx slices into the Empire’s computer systems. He performs a background check on the pirate crew. The entire crew comes up with a clean background. This is suspicious since they have been active for quite some time. Furthermore, the check reveals that one of the crew members is the nephew of Teerka the Hutt. Karsyx cleaned up his trail and exited out of the system. The rest of the time was spent playing an intense game of Uno.
Once they arrived at Tattooine, they met with Nova’s Toydarian contact about selling the ship. They haggled back and forth and finally agreed on a price to sell the shuttle, at a steep discount since it was Imperial, and will put it towards a new ship that he has. The remaining amount will need to be repaid back of course. Now the team is touring the selection of ships that they can choose from.
