Of All the Hyperlanes..."... that's what he would always say when he got mad at me for overheating the sub-light motivators on the 'Star' or dropping to repulsors too early in a landing sequence," Dexen Halcyon reflected happily. The table burst out with laughter as his friends agreed and shared stories of all the times the old Captain had said the same thing to them. Glasses were raised and another toast to honor Minas Largo was shouted toward the ceiling of the Starshine Cantina, located on level 86 of the Kira Station.

When Klaar, a nightmare of living shadow, arrives, Gleeko does all the talking and with just minimal fuss, the situation is over. There was no knowledge of any New Republic agents working on the station and it all appeared to be some sort of elaborate hoax or attempted kidnapping or bounty retrieval. The security forces remove the unconscious and dead men and Klaar tells the Crew that he is watching them and that they should try to keep out of trouble while on the station from here on out.
The crew, who had taken the id from the stranger do some research with a local underworld contact, Daks Lisser who tells them that the data on the strangers identchip is false and that running the name the "NRSF" agent used turns up some information that he was wanted by the New Republic for an attempted assassination attempt on Gandalla in the nearby Boeus Sector.
The Crew then headed back to meet with Gleeko who told them that he had a good job that could get them off the station quickly, make them a few bucks and cover their next payment for him on the ship. The Rodian bartender then put them in contact with a shady Human 2nd-hand ship dealer who needed an Imperial-class Lambda Shuttle and knew exactly where to get one.
The only catch... it was shuttling scout troopers and supplies to a nearby moon, Moorja.
Session NotesThis was our first proper Star Wars Session and it was GOOD. Everyone had a lot of fun and it really, to me at least, felt like Star Wars! There was shooting, dodging, witty comments, cinematic dives, tackles, jumps, climbs and all sorts of other fun space-opera stuff! I'm really looking forward to seeing how this one plays out! I've got a lot of adventure ideas, but this one is going to be mostly space/ sandbox. Can't wait for Episode II!
