i realize it has been awhile since my last post but i think you'll like this chapter.

ch.11  "I don't know what there doing here, but by the gods I will have my revenge."  Lt. Jango Fett


ch.11

ch.11

    Jango stood just inside the threshold of the compound’s lower front entrance.  The two heavy steel doors swung open, squeaking noisily.  The wind outside had picked up considerably and red sand blew into the open doorway.  Dominic stood next to him with his medpac at the ready to treat the incoming wounded.
    The first figure ran trough the doorway and stopped once he was sheltered from the blowing sand.  He spotted Jango and approached him, removing his helmet.  The look on his face was that of utter relief.
    “Lt. Corr.” he introduced himself extending a hand.  “Bravo company.  This place wasn’t so easy to find.”
    Jango removed his helmet, his face slightly irritated by the wind still blowing through the open doorway.  “Lt. Fett.” he replied shaking Corr’s hand. “Too bad you and your boys missed the fun.”
    Corr had a confused look on his face. “Intel said we had a garrison of at least company strength holding here.”
    Jango shook his head. “Well that leaves two options. One, they deserted their post. And if that’s the case it’ll be up to us to find them and exact punishment. Two, their missing or dead.  Either way  we still have to find out what the hell happened here.”
    Corr nodded.  The blowing wind ceased as the outer doors were shut and sealed.  The room was silent except for the occasional moan or cough from the wounded soldiers.  Dominic was busy treating the worst of them.  A trooper who had taken heavy round to his abdomen.
    Jango motioned for Corr to follow him. “Brief on what happened out there Lt.” he said opening a door to a smaller room that had been hastily fitted as a makeshift command center.
    “Gladly.” Corr replied taking a seat at the small table.  He rubbed his face with his hands and helped himself to a drink.  “Most of Bravo made the jump without a hitch.” he started. “I managed to link up with most of my men on schedule.  After meeting up at the RZ point we picked up a distress signal from remnants of another company who had been ambushed by a Deathwatch patrol.” Corr snorted. “If patrol is the right word, there was probably a 100 of them.” He took another drink. “Anyway, we managed to get the jump on them and take them out without much incident.  We hooked up with the others. About 30 guys from Alpha.  Then we made our way here.  The boys from Alpha had been hit pretty hard and had a lot of wounded.  Right when we spotted this compound, that fierfek sandstorm came out of nowhere.” Corr finished by throwing his hands in the air. “And now here we are.”
    Jango nodded.  His comlink chirped suddenly.  “What is it?” he asked putting his helmet on and listening hard.
    “Rodriguez sir.” a voice said over the COM. “Fleet just informed us of a small single craft entering our atmosphere.” Rodriquez said. “They attempted to pick it up but it was moving very fast.”
    “Let me guess.” Jango interrupted. “Fleet wants us to find where it lands and check it out right?”
    “Nothing gets past you does it sir?” Rodriguez replied. “Waiting on your orders.”
    Jango sighed. He switched to Mantle’s frequency. “Mantle, assemble our team.  Fleet wants a little recon done on this ship that landed.”
    Mantle’s voice filled his helmet. “We got coordinates for this so called ship sir?” he said.
    Jango accessed fleet’s database via his HUD.  “Copy.” Jango replied as numbers flashed on his visor. “Not too far from here actually. That makes it somewhat suspicious, especially since it skirted our fleet to get here.”
    “I hear that sir.” Mantle replied. “So is this the sort of recon where we blow something up? Or should I pack lightly.”
    “Oh I think the usual kit will be just fine sergeant.” Jango said.  “I’ll give you five minutes, then I want a team standing by and ready to go.”
    “You got it sir.” Mantle said. “See you in five.”
    Jango closed the Com link and studied Corr. “I’m leaving you in charge for the moment.” he told him. “We got a little intel to collect for fleet.”
    Corr nodded. “Anything I can do to help?”
    Jango shook his head. “Just make sure this place is in once piece for when I get back.” he said. “I don’t want to see any black armor on the roof again.”
    “No problem sir.” Corr replied drawing a very bulky blaster from his holdster and placing it on the table.
    “Glad to hear it.” Jango said opening the door and stepping out of the room.  “Mantle, you got that team ready?”
    “We were ready yesterday sir.” Snake’s deep voice growled.
    “Good.” Jango replied.   Ã¢Â€ÂœI think I can manage to get us a ride too.”
    “Even better.” Snake replied.  “I sorta didn’t feel like walking anyways.”
    Jango switched channels. “Rodriquez, get me fleet on the horn and try to secure us some transportation.”
    “I’d love to sir.” Rodriguez replied.  “Would you like a nice Luxury speeder? Or shall I ask for the usual gunship.”
    “Gunship today.” Jango said walking up the stairway towards the roof. “I’m not into those very classy ships.”
    “Roger.” Rodriquez replied. There was a short pause.  “Got it sir. Fleet’s sending a gunship asap. ETA 2 minutes.”
    Fleet was true to their word. Exactly two minutes passed when Jango heard the roar of engines outside.  He climbed the stairway to the roof and opened the door.  A rush of wind and engine noise met him.  Hovering just above the roof was a Mandalorian Thunderhawk.  It’s troop bay door slid open and the crew chief gestured for them to jump in.
    “This is Thunderhawk 2” The pilot’s voice came over Jango’s COM.  “Fleet said you guys needed a lift?”
    Jango jogged over to the massive ship and greeted the crew chief.
    “This birds a little too big to land.” The crew chief laughed.  “Watch your step sir.”
    Jango stepped into the gunship’s troop bay.  Large enough to fit an entire platoon of fully armed commandos.  Snake, Dominic, Mantle, and Rodriquez were already inside.
    The crew chief slid the door shut and sealed it, completely muffling the sound of the engines.  He tapped the pilot’s shoulder.  The pilot nodded and throttled up.  A thick cloud of dust  circled away from the accelerating gunship as it lifted off.  Jango rested his head on the interior and listened to the steady thrum of the engines.
    Snake looked up. “So did fleet mention what kind of ship we were dealing with here?” he asked. “I mean alien, human, weapons capabilities?”
    “Afraid not.” Jango replied sitting straight again.  “Poor intel is something you should be used to by now anyway Snake.”
    Snake leaned back and didn’t say a word.  Out of habit he began stripping down and meticulately cleaning his rifle.
    “Were nearing the designated DZ sir.” The pilot said over the COM and turning in his seat to face Jango.  “40 seconds.”
    Jango nodded and stood up.  The rest of his squad did the same.  Jango looked into the reflective lenses of their visors.  “You know what to do.” he said simply. “If all possible I want this pilot alive.  No blasting till I give the order understood?”
    “Yes Sir!” the squad replied in unison, snapping to attention.  The pilot’s voice came over the COM once more.
    “Touching down.”  he said.  “We’ll keep the engines hot, may the gods be with you.”
    The crew chief slid the cargo door open as light flooded the interior.  Jango leaped out into the infinite sea of red sand and activated his HUD to scan for lifeforms.  “Fierfek” he swore as the blowing sand made the delicate electronics in his HUD almost useless.  “Stay tight.” He ordered over the squad channel. “Getting separated out here would probably mean the end.”
    Jango lead the way away from the idling Thunderhawk and up a nearby dune.  Nearing the top he went to a prone position and pulled out a pair of long range scanners.  He placed them to his visor and began sweeping the plateau like area in front of him.
    Mantle flopped down next to him.  “I don’t like this sir.” he whispered as whatever was out there was listening to them. “That could be anything out there.”
    Jango nodded but didn’t say anything.  He continued sweeping with the scanners until his keen eye spotted the faint black outline of a small starship.
    Jango lowered the scanners from his visor and handed them to Mantle.  “Run a diagnostic on that silhouette.” he said. “Something tells me I’ve seen it before.”
    Mantle nodded and plugged the scanners into the small data pad he carried with him.  The screen started flashing as the data pad ran through thousands of ships on it’s database. The screen blinked and turned green to indicate a match was found.
    Mantle cocked his head in puzzlement. “That’s odd.” he said pushing several keys.  “It’s a fighter.” he said turning to Jango. “Jedi Class.”
    Jango swallowed hard as hatred began to boil inside him. He knew he had seen a ship like that before.  He remembered back to his childhood when the Jedi came to his homeworld and slaughtered his parents.  These traitors were responsible for the almost near extinction of the Mandalorian race.
    “Prepare to move out.” Jango ordered standing up. There was nothing but ice in his voice.  “We’ll see what our Jedi friend is doing in Mando territory.”

Re: "The Beginning of The End" story of the 101st MSB

ch. 12  "Traitorous Beliefs"

            Sky Marshall Meijers stared through the blast screens of the enormous viewing window.  The red surface of Mars was being ravaged by intense sand storms, and watching the swirling atmosphere from high orbit was breathtaking.
    Meijers sighed and slumped into the bantha hide chair in his private quarters aboard the Mandalorian flagship Basilisk.  He rubbed the bridge of his nose and was tempted to light up one of the Deathsticks he had stashed in the bottom drawer of his desk.
    A harmonized ping sounded indicating a transmission had been received on his private holo feed.  Meijers decided to wait on the Deathstick and leaned forward to answer the transmission.
    “What is it?” he complained leaning back in his chair and opening the bottom drawer once again.
    The holo generator hummed to life and a figure wrapped in a black cloak appeared before him. His face completely shadowed by the large hood over his head.
    “I would choose your words more carefully if I were you Marshall.” The figure hissed in a cold voice.
    Meijers nearly fell out of his chair in surprise. Regaining his composure he knelt on his knee. “My apologies my lord.” He said with his head bowed. “I wasn’t expecting you.”
    “It matters not.” The cold figure replied. “Our fleet in nearly thru the protective asteroid belt that protects this planet.”
    “That is good news my lord.” Replied Meijers, standing up once again. “I assure you our fleet will not intervene.” Meijers paused. “It is becoming increasingly difficult to stall the council from launching an attack.  The Deathwatch are our enemies after all. And if the council gets word of a Deathwatch Armada coming thru the belt an attack would be almost inevitable.”
    The dark figure scowled. “This is of no importance to me, remember, you work for me now Marshall. The Mandalorians are a dying race.  I have shown the Deathwatch leaders the path and you too must follow, or be destroyed.”
    Meijers swallowed hard. “Of course my lord.” His greed overcoming his judgment once again. “Though my original price, I want double.”
    “Price is of no matter to me Marshall.” The figure replied with an evil grin. “You will get your credits I assure you. But if you fail me, I shall reserve the deepest part of hell for your soul.”
    “I understand my lord.” Meijers replied, cold sweat on his brow. “How long must I stall the fleet?”
    “We will be thru the belt in a matter of days.” The dark figure hissed. “You understand that this….weapon, must not be damaged.”
    “Of course my lord.” Meijers replied kneeling once again. “I will not fail you.” Meijers suddenly remembered the small ship that passed them and landed on the surface. “My lord,” He started anxiously, “There is the matter of a small ship that managed to get past us and land on the surface.” Meijers swallowed. “I believe the Jedi know of our plans.”
    The dark figure thought for a moment. “Have your men destroy the Jedi along with his ship. If word gets back to the Jedi council, more Jedi will surely try to intervene with our operation.”
    “I’ll see to it personally my lord.” Meijers replied.
    “Good.” The figure said. “I will be in contact with you within the next few days. I want the Jedi dead by the next time I see you.”   
    With that the feed ended and Meijers was left alone in his quarters.  Sighing he slumped back into his chair and wiped the sweat from his brow with a shaking hand.  How did he get mixed up in this?  When he was appointed Sky Marshall he had certainly not even thought of working with the enemy and betraying his own race.
    Meijers sighed again. Reaching into the bottom drawer, he produced one of the Deathsticks from his personal supply.  Taking a deep hit he wondered how he had even started the filthy habit. He smiled as the chemicals took hold.  On the bright side, look how much credits he was making, he would retire a rich man and the thought pleased him greatly. As traitorous as it was, being employed by the Sith had it’s benefits.

Re: "The Beginning of The End" story of the 101st MSB

here it is ch 13.

Ch.13 The Lost Battalion

     Staff Sergeant Mantle calmly consulted his datapad for a third time.  Diagnostics flashed across the screen and he compared them to the tangle of wires in front of him.
    The gun bunker was a mess, thanks to the rocket that he himself had used to blow apart a vast chunk of the wall.  Engineers Thompson and Harkus had temporarily repaired the gaping hole and Harkus had even managed to salvage the bulky Westar 50 heavy machine gun that the previous day had been used against them.
    “This is a mess.” Harkus said frustrated putting his thermal cutters down and removing his helmet.  “This thing hasn’t been fired for at least a century!”
    Mantle said nothing and returned to the enormous task of repairing the miles of ancient wiring that linked the massive orbital defense gun to it’s targeting computer. He let out a shout of glee as the dusty screen flashed to life.
    “Now were in business!” he said excitedly. “Harkus do me a favor and pull that lever over there on the wall.”
    Harkus complied and pulled down the aging rusted lever.  With a groan the ancient hydraulics whined into life.  Above them the roof split apart and from below the giant form of the cannon rose to level with the room, it’s barrel pointed towards the sky.
    Thompson whistled as he observed the sheer size of the weapon.  “This thing could knock even the Basilisk out of the sky.”
    “And that is what it was exactly designed for my friend.” Mantle replied punching commands into the gun’s computer.  “Fierfek.” He swore as the screen turned to red.
    “What is it?” Harkus asked replacing his helmet and walking over.  “Don’t tell me this thing still won’t fire.”
    Mantle let out a frustrated sigh. “Okay I won’t tell you.” He replied.  “But I will tell you the power cells are depleted. In fact…” he continued reading the warning lights. “The ion fusion core is leaking.  We could try to fire, but we would probably cause a meltdown.”
    “How long will that take to fix?” Harkus asked studying the screen.  “The Lt. put us on a very strict schedule.”
    “That depends on the size of the leak.” Mantle replied. “If it’s a small one, maybe an hour or so. Lets just hoped the containment chamber isn’t cracked.”
    Harkus nodded and scooped up his fusion cutters.  “I’ll go take a look.”
    “Keep an eye on the radiation levels.” Mantle cautioned after him.  “Don’t stay in there too long or you’ll grow another arm.”
    “Maybe that would help me fix it faster.” Joke Harkus as he yanked open the small access hatch that led into the gun’s mechanical belly. “I’ll radio you when I get an estimate.”
    Mantle nodded and turned to Thompson. “Thompson go check the magazine, It’s in the basement. It’s possible the shells have corroded.”
    “You got it.” Thompson nodded and jogged out the door.
    Mantle shook his head.  He had some messes to fix before but this ancient piece of crap was kicking his sheb.
    Suddenly his COM chirped. “You get there already Thompson?” he asked.
    “No sir.” Thompson replied sounding anxious. But I think you should get the LT. and head down here. Now.”
    “Why what’s the matter?” Mantle asked puzzled, but he COM ended.  “Fierfek what now?”
    Mantle headed out onto the compound’s roof.  Cursing the heat and scouting the rooftop for a sign of Jango.  There he was, cleaning his blasters. Typical.
    “Hey LT!” Mantle called running over to him. “Better come with me, Thompson’s got a situation downstairs and says you should check it out.”
    “What is it?” Jango asked holstering his blasters and standing up.
    “If I knew I would tell you sir but he sounded pretty excited.” Mantle replied leading the way towards the staircase.
    Jango nodded. “Learchus! Borneo!” he called to two recruits leaning on the wall in the shade. “Make yourselves useful and follow me.”
    “Right away sir.” Borneo replied tapping Learchus’s shoulder and jogging over.
    The four made their way down the dark staircase. Thompson was waiting at the armored door that led to the basement.
    “You’re gonna wanna see this sir.” Thompson told Jango and led the way into the dank inerior of the basement.
    Thompson opened a door which led into what looked like a barracks. Lockers lined the far wall and bunks stretched into the darkness.  Jango suddenly noticed a figure in Mandolarian armor sitting on a bench, his head in his hands.
    “Found him hiding in that locker sir.” Thompson said pointing to the open door. “I nearly blasted him, he had this in his hand. Thank the gods it was a dud.”
    He stretched out his hand and showed Jango a thermal detonator, it’s pin removed and spoon missing.
    Jango wheeled on the figure, furious that he almost killed on of his men. Grabbing a length of his greasy black hair, he yanked up his head to get a look at his face. Jango gasped as he noticed the figure was covered in dry blood.
    “What’s your name soldier?” Jango asked letting his hair go, and his head slumped to his chest once more.
    The figure was silent. Quiet sobs escaped his lips.
    “I asked  you a question soldier.” Jango said more firmly. “What’s your name and unit number?”
    The figure lifted his head and stared into the reflective black mirror of Jango’s visor. “P-Private first class P-Pincon sir.” He croaked. “COM operator, D company, 82nd. Infantry battalion.”
    Jango processed the information in his head. The 82nd were the garrison posted here before the Deathwatch arrived!
    “Where is the rest of your unit?” Jango asked removing his helmet and kneeling level with Pincon.
