Star Wars: Wild Space

S2E4 A Dish Best Served Cold

They caught up to Toinar in the Drek Pit, a shanty town built on the remains of a Xenoium Refinery. The industrial run-off, known as Drek, was highly explosive if not disposed of properly. Toinar was the middle-man for the bomb droids. His only friend, Naph Kordax.

Kordax was known as a builder. It was because of him that most of the city still stands to this day. He was betrayed, however, by a man who he thought was his friend, Hans Howar, billionaire industrialist. Hans ran his workers into the ground, exploiting them at the behest of the Empire so they could erect the Victory Tower, a sign of Imperial might and industry. Kordax was sewing rebellion in the hearts of the workers, so Hans arranged an accident. Kordax disappeared and was believed dead, until now. He was very much alive and desired for the truth to be revealed about Howar’s treachery. The final act of a revenge obsessed man would be the bombing of the very tower that he helped built, with Howar inside.

Toinar revealed this just before he was gunned down by a Hired Gun known as Sleemo Three-Guns and his posse of assassins. A firefight ensued and the assassins nearly had the upper hand until Argus Bloat’s men discovered a gun fight on their turf. Sleemo fled the scene.

Luckily, Bloat was an acquaintance of the rebels and it was also very unfortunate that Bloat’s own Momma had a cushy apartment in the Victory Towers. They drove to the battle in style.

Yanasera went to work disabling the massive bombs hidden within the bowels of the tower. Lem and Nakk confronted Howar in his penthouse suite, and Arijak discovered the location of the bomber in a nearby building.

The bombs were disabled just as Lem and Nakk managed to convince Howar to confess his part in the accident that nearly took Kordax’s life. Arijak bore final witness to what Kordax had become, a decrepit old man barely kept alive by own grandson. In the end, Kordax chose not to detonate the bombs. His quest for justice had been fulfilled but at the cost of many innocent lives. He asked if Arijak was an honourable man and asked for him to take care of his grandson. After being reassured that the child would be safe, he ended his life.

Lem, for her part, executed Howar for his crimes, and the two rebels escaped the tower.

S2E3 Home Sweet Home

Their first stop on their journey back to Daraay was to Checkpoint Zeta, a hidden training camp.

It was there that they encountered a number of likely allies. Rango the fruit seller and Yello the Apothecary. In order to make money to afford their trip into the city, they took a commission from the mysterious fixer known as Shifty who was in need of a live Sykorax, a flying xenosaur that rarely ventured from the third jungle canopy. Their rival was Oryon the Hunter and his crew.

Through trickery and theft they managed to beat Oryon’s people to the punch and capture two Sykorax which they promptly traded to Shifty for a promising bonus to their fee.

With that, they ventured back into the city, running afoul of the corrupt bureaucratic Imperial machine in the form of Customs Inspector Reeve who required exorbitant bribes to keep from landing in an imperial gulag.

Following leads provided by Col-Sec Lt. Alva Hayes (forced from the investigation because of office politics) and Pvt. Dax (another Nova Prime orphan), they tracked down the source of the bomb droids to Parsec Couriers. They discovered that one of their technicians, Gainor, had been unknowingly putting bomb droids into the business’s droid fleet at the behest of a man named Toinar.

S2E2 Bounty Hunter Blues

It was sheer luck that only the Doctor was knocked out by the stun grenade. Zallie took the doctor through a tear in the tent. The others set up to receive the bounty hunter’s assault. Yanasera intimidated the bounty hunters, giving time for Zallie to escape. The inevitable gun fight happened and the hunters were defeated. Jodo Kast fled using his jet pack, but Arijak’s lucky shot disabled the jet pack, which fell and exploded in the middle of their tent.

Leaving the chaos in the market behind them, the Rebels fled the city into the jungles of Nara. They found themselves in the village known as Mire, the home of Mason’s people. The Rebels encountered more war orphans from their past. B’nar and Telana. They were not the only ones from Nova Prime.

Galen Argo survived the events of the Battle of Cygnus, but defeat changed him for the worse. He had lost both his legs and his arm, which had been replaced with crude prosthesis. Not only was his body altered but his mind as well. The old general who had been a wise and cautious leader was now driven to exact vengeance against the Empire.

After giving them some time to adjust to life in Mire, Argo sent the Rebels on their first mission, to locate the Mad Bomber of Daraay and recruit him to their cause.

S2E1 The Midnight Clinic

It began with a bomb attack which critically injured rebel agent Jace Mason. He was discovered by Kay-Cee Vol who brought in Lem, Nack, Zally, Yanesera and Arijac to assist her. The five of them orchestrated a reverse heist, planting false records of Mason as a patient in a nearby hospital so that he could receive treatment without compromising his identity as a rebel soldier.

His life was saved, however he was in no condition to complete his mission, which was to extract the Mon Calamari Dr. Arzulie who had been providing medical supplies to the rebels outside the colony. Col-Sec and the Empire were planning a sweep of the colony to round-up dissidents in the wake of protests and riots. Dr. Arzulie and his people had set up a mobile clinic for colonists would could not afford the cost of medical care.

Using their connections they figured out where the next stop for the Midnight Clinic would be and staked it out. While they were waiting, they discovered a crew of bounty hunters lead by the sort-of famous Jodo Kast. There was a brief skirmish and the Rebels escaped with the Bounty Hunter’s landspeeder. Using a communicator that was confiscated from a rebel agent, they got in touch with Dr. Arzulie who asked to meet them at his hideout. They traded the landspeeder for a Beam-Splitter, a device used to breach the sonic barrier that surrounded the Colony. With their means of escape in hand the Rebels made contact with the Doctor.

They met in Takren Square Market at the Bird seller’s tent. Dr. Arzulie was reunited with the Nova Prime Orphans. The joyful meeting was short lived as Jodo Kast launched a stun grenade into the tent.

Season 1 Epilogue

Karnor’s defeat on Nara V signaled the end of the Warlord Period of the Lyran Sector. Where the raiders saw easy targets, they found staunch defenders and where the Empire hoped to sow chaos, they found strong bonds forged in battle.

The survivors mourned the dead and set to the long task of rebuilding.

What became of the Tyran Merchant Guild and the Brotherhood of Scavengers and Junkers?
The Tyran Merchant Guild absorbed the remains of the Brotherhood of Scavengers and Junkers into their ranks. They formed a subsidiary guild of prospectors and traders called the Prospector’s Association. Temba son of Olf assumed control of the Association. Although young, his experiences on Nova Prime taught him caution and wisdom and the Union prospered in its first years.

Olf stepped down from leadership and a general election was held. His brother Tass, unfortunately, was not able to gather enough votes to win back his seat.

What became of Lyran IV?
Ever since the end of the war, Lyran IV became a divided world. Those that fought against the warlords that returned home found their planet unrecognizable under Imperial control. The Empire rounded up veterans of the war regardless of whether the returning soldiers supported the empire or not. Today Lyran IV is safe, but at the cost of its freedom.

What became of Despair?
Despair had won its freedom from the Lyran Sector Warlords by blaster and blade. The Johari rebels, as they called themselves, set up a provisional government and set to themselves to the difficult task of rebuilding. The Johar Oligarchy declared the planet the Free Planet of Meridian. An alliance with the Prospector’s Union and the Tyran Merchant Guild was established to clear the debris from the orbit of Meridian and at the end of seven long years, the people of Meridian no longer fear what may fall from the sky.

What became of Nova Prime?
Nova Prime had suffered Almost immediately, the victors set about establishing a formal alliance between themselves with Nova Prime at the center. The foundation for the Freespace Union was laid down in the early days of the war. The first members of the Union were Nova Prime, Akselon, and the Tyran Guild, each represented by Galen Argo, Baron Enwin d’Akord, and Olf Treesinger. The Union was a combined military front against future invaders as well as an governing body to mediate conflicts between Union members.

The Stuff of Legends

The Arrival of Karnor the Bloody

Karnor’s battle meditation swept the field, causing Nova Prime’s defenders to break. Akselon’s fleet was thrown into disarray and Karnor’s berserkers began picking them apart with ease. Zosh, the ace pilot, was struck with the full force of Karnor’s psychic attack and fled the field.

The agents of Nova Prime on the surface of the planet braced themselves against the psychic attack, only to see it blunted by an unknown force. Something on the planet was barely protecting them against its effects. Chuuba and Yuri set off to discover what it was.

Jedi Knights, Lem, Ciello and Orin arrived to join Gray to combine their power to ward against Karnor the Bloody’s battle meditation by calming the fear that plagued their allies.

While the battle raged on the surface, Chuuba and Yuri delved deep into the heart of Arcology IV to discover a lost archive. The Sethrak, the lizard-like aliens who had once ruled supreme on this planet, had all been wiped out. The only remaining legacy of these lost masters was the xenosaurs, the ruins, and a broken-down AI caretaker. The Caretaker was content to leave the surface alone, but Chuuba argued with the AI, forcing it to see that it and the treasures it guarded were not safe so long as Karnor was alive. Reluctantly, the Caretaker tasked them to help reconstruct the beacons the Sethrak had used against its xenosaur servitors. The power of the beacons could be used to disrupt the mind-control aspects of Karnor’s battle meditation.

Meanwhile, the Jedi relinquished themselves to the force and the fear that swept the battlefield was halted. The defenders of Wild Space once again were in control of themselves and they began to fight back.

Zosh pulled himself together and jumped back into the fray, for Karnor did not only have his battle meditation, but the remaining Iridium Torpedoes, locked onto Nova Prime. Zosh, joined by a group of rebel pilots, in a dazzling display of starpiloting managed to blast apart the bombers, crippling his own ship as the last bomber made a suicide run on the station.

Karnor sensed the Jedi and brought the full force of his rage against them. His elite soldiers landed on Arc IV, he himself kitted out in his enormous powered armor. He cut his way through the meagre defenses. Gray left Ciello and Lem to continue the ritual and confronted Karnor alone. The warlord’s power and fury nearly broke the Jedi but Gray had the force on her side. Three sweeps of her saber sliced into the delicate machinery of Karnor’s suit, destroying the suit’s life support system. Not only was the suit his greatest weapon, its life support system was the only thing keeping his broken body alive. He toppled from his power armor, consumed by his impotent rage in the last minutes of his horrible life.

It was then that the beacons were restored. Karnor’s Berserkers, their minds restored, surrendered. A few others, pushed well beyond the bounds of sanity, fled into the night. What became of them would become a story for another time.

And so ended the Battle for Nova Prime. Prince Volkair was captured in his escape pod fleeing the burning hulk of his capital ship and made to sign an armistice which formally ended the civil war on Akselon. And for once, a peace came to this sector of Wild Space. At least for a time.

Episode 20

Call to Battle!

Our heroes arrive back on Akselon where Princess Aura was crowned Queen. By her command, the mighty fleets of Akselon stood down from their petty squabbles and joined together to sail for Nova Prime.

While they were gone, Prince Volkair made his move. A planetary cannon was secretly unearthed by Volkair’s agents and brought to bear against the unsuspecting space station. Nova Prime’s defenders sprung into action and flew down to the surface, only to be ambushed and scattered by Volkair’s forces, and a deadly web of planetary defense lasers.

Zosh, the reckless commander that he was, pulled his companions away from Akselon, leaving the generals and queens to plan for battle. By guile, they posed as a late arrival to Prince Akselon’s invading fleet. By strange coincidence, Chuba’s cousin, Jakuul had joined with Volkair as a trader. They stole his ship and flew down to the surface where they met up with their allies.

The Battle for Nara IV

Before the Battle
Zosh and F1-NK gathered the scattered troops of the First Legion and discovered that the remnants of Red Squadron had been captured and put into a prison camp near Arc-4, right where the planetary cannon was stationed.

Chuuba and Gray set to work convincing the Silentium to join the fight.. They were reluctant, given that they were a peaceful species. However, with the urging of the Silentium Terminal nicknamed Scarface, the Silentium came out of hiding to take a stand for their new homeland.

A new ally appeared, the last researcher of the Republic Expedition Force that had become completely absorbed in his work on the Nara IV. He had discovered a way to control the Xenosaurs that roamed the planet. Certain high frequency sounds used in a key sequence could compel the creatures into obedience. Dr. Yuri helped the duros researcher Dr. Talath Kon (henceforth known as Dr. Bones because of his bone mask) complete his research and created a holo-recording of various commands Dr. Bones could use.

During the Battle
The Silentium Ship drifted over the Prison Camp in total silence and nearly invisible under its cloaking device. It blasted apart the towers and the first legion descended to the surface to free their comrades.

While the Silentium and First Legion attacked the Prison Camp, the Xenosaurs rampaged through the Arc 4 fortress.

During the attack, the Enemy General, fleeing from the Xenosaur attack, was captured by the agents of Nova Prime.

While the fort was being attacked, attacked, reinforcements arrived and damaged the silentium mothership, forcing it to flee the field.

The planetary defense laser was commandeered by the Agents and turned against Prince Volkair’s fleet. The tide turned against Volkair as the combined Akselon and Tyran Guild fleets defeated the traitorous prince.

The Arrival of Karnor the Bloody
Just as victory was in sight and Volkair’s fleet broke and scattered from the field, a strange war cry screamed across all channels. The power of the darkside washed over the battlefield, sending brave soldiers cowering in terror. Karnor the Bloody and his Berserkers had arrived.

Disaster!

The agents of Nova Prime have been missing for months after they ventured into the Tyus Cluster in search of the lost Valoran Prism. It is up to Gray, one of the last Jedi, to venture into the dark heart of Tyus to find her friends.

While there, Grey discovered that within the Tyus Cluster was a force locus, a place where the power of the darkside had gathered. Even to the non-force sensitives trapped within the cluster were experiencing vivid hallucinations and erratic emotions. Blaine Hansom was maimed by Lem, the Jedi youngling, and the Jedi Cielo, wounded and afraid, became trapped in the memory of his first battle of the Clone War.

Meanwhile, the other agents set to work repairing the Nightcrawler with the scavenged parts left in the Federation ships. They fought off wave and wave of attackers; and their Silentium companion was kidnapped by Perseus the ship-board AI.

A desperate battle between the AI and our heroes ensued. The AI’s droid core was destroyed, buying them enough time to flee the wreckage of the Federation ships and back to Nova Prime with the Valorian Prism in hand.
