    THE ALAMO
    MAKING A LEFT LEAVING THE IFC GUILD HALL MAKING MY WAY DOWN MAIN STREET. PASSING FWAP’S ARMORY, FALLON’S FASHIONS, AND BREASAL’S FOOD, I COULD HEAR THE RIVER GENTLY FLOWING ITS WAY TOWARD THEED PALACE. SOMEWHERE IN THE DISTANCE I COULD HERE THE KAADU’S CALLING TO EACH OTHER, JUST ANOTHER BLUE SKY DAY IN FOOVILLE ON NABOO.
    FOOVILLE, A PRIME EXAMPLE OF A DEDICATED IMPERIAL CITY. NABOO IS THE EMPEROR’S HOMEWORLD, HOME OF THE EMPEROR’S RETREAT, AND NOW FOOVILLE. IMPERIAL FOO CORPS. REPRESENTED NOT JUST BEING A CITIZEN OF THE EMPIRE, BUT ALSO THE BEST OF WHAT IT MEANT TO SERVE THE EMPIRE. IFC WAS FOUNDED BY COMMANDER JOEBANE MAETHEON , HAVING ALSO FOUNDED FOOVILLE WITH THE SAME DEDICATION & PLANNING FROM THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE CITY BUILDINGS TO THE PLACEMENT OF EVERY HOUSE. FOOVILLE WAS CREATED NEAR THEED, THE VERY HEART OF NABOO AND FASTEST STARPORT IN ALL THE GALAXY. YES, IT WAS EASY TO SEE THAT THE MAN THAT CREATED FOOVILLE HAD TRULY THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING. NOW HIS GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT SINCE THE CREATION OF IFC & FOOVILLE, WAS ABOUT TO BE COMPLETE. NOT JUST ANOTHER IMPERIAL DETACHED HEADQUARTERS, RATHER A HEAVILY FORTIFIED WORK OF GENIUS, THE ALAMO.
    THE ALAMO REPRESENTED IMPERIAL STRENGTH & UNITY IN THE GALAXY. WITH THE REBELS GROWING IN NUMBERS AND BOLDNESS FOLLOWING THE DESTRUCTION OF ALDERANN. THE EMPIRE WAS ON FULL ALERT, THE EMPEROR HAD ISSUED AN IMPERIAL CRACK DOWN . AN ORDER THAT HAD IMPERIAL PRESENCE ON EVERY PLANET, STAR DESTROYERS IN ORBIT, AND SQUADS ROAMING CITIES SEARCHING FOR COVERT REBELS & ILLEGAL ITEMS. WITH SO MUCH IMPERIAL ACTIVITY IFC WAS AT ITS BEST. EVERYDAY MORE AND MORE JOINED THE RANKS OF THE IMPERIAL FOO CORPS.
    I WAS HEADING OVER TO VISIT WITH DR. PADDINGTON REGARDING IFC HEALTH STANDARDS & REGULATIONS. “HELLO H’TEAD, OR RATHER DOCTOR H’TEAD.” DR. PADDINGTON SAID WITH HIS USUAL ACCENT “ I COULDN’T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOUR GUIDANCE SIR, NOW WHAT IS IT YOU’D LIKE TO GO OVER?”
    “THE BOY IN THE LAB HAVE COOKED UP FIRE BLANKETS H”
    “BUT DON’T WE ALREADY HAVE THOSE?”
    “NOT LIKE THESE, YOU ALREADY KNOW COMMANDO & BOUNTY HUNTERS USE SPECIAL FLAMER AMMO THAT MAKES THE FIRE ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT TO DEFUSE OR PUT OUT. NOW WITH THESE, WARFARE WILL CHANGE AND MORE LIVES CAN BE SAVED, LESS TIME IN BACTA HEALING WOUNDS.” DR. PADDINGTON STATED IN HIS SOMETIMES DRY VOICE. “WELL THIS WILL CERTAINLY GIVE US A BATTLE EDGE OVER THE REBELS.” I COULD SEE THE CREASES IN HIS FACE TWITCH SLIGHTLY, SOMETHING HE OFTEN DID WHEN HE WAS ABOUT TO DELIVER BAD NEWS TO HIS PATIENTS “ UNFORTUNATELY A SHIPMENT OF DATACARDS CONTAINING SCHEMATICS WAS INTERCEPTED BY REBELS AND IT IS LIKELY THEY WILL ALSO HAVE THE BLANKETS. “NONETHELESS I HAVE STARTED A BATCH IN THE FACTORIES OF FOO, IN A COUPLE OF DAYS WE SHOULD HAVE ENOUGH TO SUPPLY ALL OF IFC” LUPIN CONTINUED.
    “SOUNDS LIKE GREAT NEWS, I’LL TAKE A COPY OF THE DATACARD WITH ME AND LOOK IT OVER TONIGHT. HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.”
    “H’TEAD, MAY I ASK WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE ALAMO?” DR. PADDINGTON LOOKING AT ME STERNLY. “WHAT DO YOU MEAN? THE ALAMO IS A SHINING EXAMPLE OF IMPERIAL STRENGTH, DEDICATION, AND PLANNING.”
    “EXACTLY, RIGHT NOW THE REBELS & EMPIRE ARE PLAYING A GAME OF TUSK CAT & NUNA’S BUT EVEN A NUNA WILL LASH OUT ONCE IT HAS BEEN CORNERED. THE REBELS WILL STRIKE SOON, AND THEY WILL HAVE TO HIT A MEANINGFUL TARGET, ONE THAT COULD REALLY DEAL A BLOW TO THE EMPIRE BOTH IN MORALE & STRENGTH.” LUPIN REPLIED SITTING DOWN IN HIS OFFICE CHAIR. HE CONTINUED “ THEY DO NOT HAVE THE STRENGTH OR GULL TO ATTACK THE DEATH STAR OR COURSCANT, THAT LEAVES ONE PLACE.”

    “THE ALAMO” I INTERRUPTED “COMMANDER JOEBANE JUST FINISHED BRIEFING HIS OFFICERS ON NEW SECURITY DETAILS. THE ALAMO HAS TWO ENTRANCES, ONE A SMALL PATHWAY WITH ANTI-PERSONNEL MINES THE OTHER A HIGHLY SECURE SHUTTLE PORT. THE HQ ITSELF HAS FIVE TURRET EMPLACEMENTS, ENOUGH SUPPLIES FOR SIX SCORES OF TROOPS AND MORE. I SERIOUSLY DOUBT THEY’D EVER THINK OF ATTEMPTING TO ATTACK IT YET ALONE IT HAS BEEN UNDER EXTREME SECRECY.” I REPLIED NEARLY EXASPERATED TRYING TO DEFEND THE REASONING. DR. PADDINGTON TOOK A MOMENT TO LOOK AT ME THEN SIGHED HEAVILY SAYING “H, I HOPE YOU’RE RIGHT. I HAVE TO GET BACK TO WORK NOW.” I LEFT WITHOUT EXCHANGING ANOTHER WORDS, BUT NOW IT WAS DIFFERENT, NOW I HAD DOUBTS.
    WE HAD THE SUPPLIES, THE TRAINING, THE SOLDIERS, THE PLANS, AND THE HOME TURF ADVANTAGE. NOT TO MENTION FOR THE SIZE OF ARMY NEEDED TO ATTACK THE ALAMO WE WOULD HAVE PLENTY OF NOTICE BECAUSE IT WAS LOCATED IN THE CENTER OF FOOVILLE SURROUNDED BY WALLS, WALLS SURROUNDED BY DEDICATED FOO’S HOMES. IT WAS GETTING DARK NOW, I LOOKED DOWN AT THE DATA CARD I WAS STILL HOLDING. THE FIRE BLANKETS, I SHOVED THE DATACARD INTO MY DOCTORS COAT POCKET AND STARTED TOWARDS THE FOOVILLE CANTINA. THE HOME TO THE FOOVILLE CANTINA IT ALWAYS TOOK ME BACK A LITTLE THE REST OF IFC & FOOVILLE WAS SO STRUCTURED WHILE HERE, IT WAS NOT. HOME TO AIR CAKES, HAVLA, SYNTHSTEAK, BESPIN PORT, AND TO THE FAMOUS FOO BOMBERS. I ORDERED A GLASS OF CORELLIAN BRANDY, TAKING A SEAT AT AN EMPTY TABLE IN THE REAR OF THE CANTINA. I STARTED TO THINK ABOUT WHAT DR. PADDINGTON SAID, COULD THE REBELS REALLY HAVE IT OUT FOR THE ALAMO? AND WERE WE REALLY PREPARED? WE HAD TO BE, WE WERE ALWAYS PREPARED. TAKING A SIP OF THE BRANDY A MALE VOICE SAID “SOMETHING ON YOUR MIND DOC?”. IT WAS AROM, IFC’S TOP SQUAD LEADER, CARBINEER, & FELLOW OFFICER. “NOTHING IMPORTANT REALLY, JUST SOMETHING I OVERHEARD. WHAT BRINGS YOU OUT? SHOULDN’T YOU BE ON SECURITY DETAIL?”. TAKING A SEAT, LOOKING OVER AT THE DANCER’S ON STAGE HE REPLIED “ I WAS ACTUALLY ON MY WAY OUT WHEN I SAW YOU SNEAKING IN ALONE OVER HERE. BESIDES I NEEDED A BREAK, I’VE HAD THE ROOKIES TRAINING WORKING AS A SQUAD BY TAKING OUT KAADU NEST. THE PEKO PEKO’S LOVE KAADU EGGS AND THE LAST THING WE WANT IS A FEW ALBATROSSES MAKING FOOVILLE THEIR NEW HUNTING GROUNDS. I’D SAY OTHER THAN THAT WE ARE SECURE ESPECIALLY WITH THAT IMPENETRABLE FORTRESS THE ALAMO. “
    “IMPENETRABLE, YEAH OF COURSE”
    “YOU THINK DIFFERENTLY?”
    “NOT EXACTLY, IT’S JUST WITH THE EMPIRE COMING DOWN SO HARSHLY. THE REBELS ARE GOING TO LASH OUT AND THEY WILL ATTACK SOMETHING SOON.”
    “AND YOU’RE THINKING THE ALAMO?”
    “IT’S THE ONLY TARGET THE MAKES SENSE, NOW I’M TRYING TO THINK IF THERE WAS SOME HIDDEN WEAKNESS OR FLAW THAT HAS BEEN OVERLOOKED. I KNOW I’M JUST OVER THINKING IT, THE COMMANDER IS A MAN OF GREAT DETAIL AND HE’D NEVER MISS SOMETHING.“ AROM SAT SILENTLY STARING AT HIS JAWA BEER THEN WITHOUT LOOKING UP HE SAID “H, I WANT YOU TO MEET ME AT THE ALAMO IN A BIT.” HE GOT UP WITHOUT FINISHING HIS BEER AND LEFT THE CANTINA. I WAITED A MOMENT TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE EVENTS THAT HAVE OCCURRED, THIS NIGHT MAY TURN OUT TO BE RATHER INTERESTING. I LEFT THE CANTINA AND CALLED FOR MY SPEEDER TO MAKE MY WAY TO THE ALAMO.
    THE SHORT RIDE TO THE ALAMO SEEMED TO TAKE FOREVER AS I RODE TO ALAMO, STOPPING JUST SHORT OF THE PATHWAY TO THE ALAMO. I TOOK A MOMENT TO LOOK AT ALL OF IT, THE PRECISE PLANNING & PLACEMENT OF EVERY GARDEN, DECORATION, AND HOUSE IT WAS ALL PART OF A MUCH GREATER PLAN DESIGNED TO WARD OFF ATTACKERS, IN A WORD PERFECT. “IMPRESSIVE, ISN’T IT?” A FAMILIAR VOICE SAID FROM BEHIND, QUICKLY STANDING TO ATTENTION I REPLIED “COMMANDER JOEBANE SIR, I DIDN’T SEE YOU.”
    “AT EASE OFFICER, AROM CONTACTED ME REGARDING YOUR CONCERNS.”
    “SIR, I MEANT NO DISRESPECT, THE DESIGN IS PERFECT. IT IS JUST SOMETHING I OVER HEARD”
    “I UNDERSTAND H, YOU’RE AN OFFICER NOW AND YOU DESERVE TO ASK QUESTIONS TO KNOW.” JOE PAUSED A MOMENT SHIFTING HIS WEIGHT SLIGHTLY. “YOU’RE RIGHT TO THINK THERE MAY BE AN ISSUE, BECAUSE THERE IS ONE POSSIBLE PROBLEM WITH THE SECURITY OF THE ALAMO. ON THE SOUTH PERIMETER WALL THE TERRAIN IS IRREGULAR, IT COULD POTENTIALLY BE DUG THROUGH EASILY. WE ARE UNABLE TO FORTIFY THE GROUND WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE WHOLE PROJECT DUE TO THE PLACEMENT OF THE HOMES, WALLS, AND MORE. AT THIS STAGE, THIS PARTICULAR RISK IS MINIMAL AS ONLY MYSELF AND MY OFFICERS ARE AWARE OF IT.”
    “THAT IS A BIT MORE COMFORTING”
    “WE WILL DEAL WITH IT LATER, AS WE HAVE A MUCH MORE IMPORTANT ISSUE COMING UP. THE HQ IS ALMOST AT ONE-HUNDRED PERCENT CAPABILITY HOWEVER THE LAST STEP LEAVES THE HQ VULNERABLE TO SELF DESTRUCTION. ONE OF THE EMPIRE’S BUILT IN DEFENSES TO PREVENT SUCH HIGHLY CLASSIFIED INFO & MATERIALS TO FALL INTO REBEL HANDS. THIS POSES A SERIOUS PROBLEM, AND THE REASON FOR SUCH DISCRETION. THE HQ WILL BE ITS MOST VULNERABLE AT THAT TIME AND WE WILL NEED TO INCREASE SECURITY TEN FOLD FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE PROJECT.
    “I SHOULD GO AND MOBILIZE THE MEDICAL TEAM & DEFENSE TROOPS INTO POSITION.”
    “I’VE ALREADY TAKEN CARE OF THAT DOC, PREPARATIONS STARTED WHEN I LEFT THE CANTINA.” AROM SAID WALKING FROM THE DIRECTION OF THE ALAMO.
    “HEY AROM, I TAKE IT ALL THE PLANNING WAS TO REDUCE REBEL VISIBILITY?” I ASKED A LITTLE MORE REASSURED. JOEBANE ANSWERED “ THE REBELS ARE MORE RESOURCEFUL THAN THE EMPIRE WOULD LIKE TO ADMIT. THEIR BOTHAN SPY NETWORK IS VERY EFFICIENT AND THEREFORE THE HIGHEST DISCRETION IS NEEDED. NOW, EXCUSE ME AS I MUST PREPARE FOR THE NIGHT AHEAD.” HE TURNED AND STRODE OFF IN HIS TYPICAL LEADERSHIP STRIDE. I TURNED TO AROM ASKING “DO YOU THINK THE REBELS WILL ACTUALLY ATTACK US HERE”? AROM GRUNTED BACK “YOU SAID SO YOURSELF, WE ARE THEIR BEST TARGET”. I PAUSED A MOMENT TO REFOCUS MYSELF “EXCUSE ME SQUAD LEADER, I MUST GO AND PREPARE MY DROIDS”. “SURE THING DOC, I’LL SEE YOU LATER.” HE SAID WITH A BIT OF GRIM TO HIS VOICE. I WAS JUST GETTING BACK ON MY SPEEDER WHEN AROM TURNED TO SAY “OH AND DOC, YOU MIGHT WANT TO BREAK OUT THAT NEW POLEARM NIERNAKKA BROUGHT BACK FROM DATHOMIR FOR YOU. I HAVE A FEELING WE’LL NEED IT”. I SAT A MOMENT LONGER AND WATCHED HIM WALK INTO THE SHADOWS OF THE PATHWAY TOWARDS THE ALAMO, THINKING OF WHAT WAS TO COME.
    I ENTERED OUYOT MANOR HEADING STRAIGHT TOWARDS THE ARMORY IN THE BASEMENT. IN THE CRATE, WRAPPED IN A FINE DATHOMIR SPIDER SILK CLOTH WAS THE NEW VIBROAXE NIERNAKKA THE WOOKIE BROUGHT ME. HE OBTAINED THE AXE IN HIS DEALINGS WITH THE NIGHTSISTERS CLAN, HE WAS ON A MISSION TO CAPTURE AND TRAIN A RANCOR FOR LADY OPTIQUE. THE VIBROAXE ITSELF LOOKED JUST LIKE ANY OTHER EXCEPT FOR THREE SMALL INSCRIPTIONS ON THE HILT. THEY WERE WRITTEN IN THE NATIVE LANGUAGE OF THE NIGHTSISTERS. THE NIGHTSISTERS ARE FORCE SENSITIVE AND ARE OFTEN CALLED WITCHES OF DATHOMIR, THEY HAD POWERS MOST DID NOT UNDERSTAND. WHEN I HELD THE AXE IN A BATTLE STANCE THE INSCRIPTIONS BEGAN TO SOFTLY GLOW FROM BLUES TO PURPLES. NIERNAKKA SAID THE WITCH WHO GAVE THE AXE TO HIM SAID IT WAS USED BY AN ELDER DURING THE SINGING MOUNTAIN CLAN & NIGHTSISTER WARS. THE ELDER WAS KNOWN AS A GREAT WARRIOR WHO HAD A UNCANNY ABILITY TO POISIN, DISEASE, AND SET A MAN’S MIND ON FIRE, IT WAS SAID THE ELDER PASSED THE ABILITY INTO THE VIBROAXE.
    I TOOK UP PRACTICING PIKEMEN ONLY AS A SELF DEFENSE WHILE I TENDED TO PATIENCE ON THE FIELD. IT GAVE ME RANGE WITHOUT SACRIFICING DEFENSE. I TOOK IT UP REGARDLESS OF MY PEERS URGING ME TO TAKE UP TERSA KASI OR FENCING INSTEAD. I BELIEVE THE REASON NIERNAKKA GAVE ME THE AXE WAS THAT NO ONE ELSE KNEW HOW TO USE THEM, LUCKY ME. I MADE MY WAY UPSTAIRS TO PREPARE OUYOT, MY R2 ASTRO DROID, HE WAS OUT FITTED WITH THE LATEST MEDICAL MODULES. IT ALLOWED ME TO APPLY & CONDUCT EVEN THE MOST COMPLICATED PROCEDURES IN THE FIELD. EVEN THE WORST WOUNDS I COULD MEND ON THE FLY, EVEN ONES MADE BY FIRE FROM A COMMANDO’S FLAME THROWER. THE FIRE BLANKETS, I HAD ALMOST FORGOTTEN WITH EVERYTHING THAT HAD HAPPENED. I REACHED INTO MY DOCTORS COAT POCKET AND PULLED OUT THE DATACARD. THEN IT DAWNED ON ME WHY PADDINGTON GAVE ME THE BRIEFING, AND ASKED ME ABOUT THE ALAMO. HE WAS TRYING TO TELL ME ABOUT THE WALL WEAKNESS. HOW COULD I BE SO THICK? HE WAS TRYING TO GIVE ME THE HINT AND ALL I COULD DO WAS SIT AND THINK ABOUT IT. I RAN BACK TO MY ARMORY AND FLUNG OPEN MY ARMOR CACHE. THERE IN THE WHITE LIGHT OF MY ARMOR CABINET WAS MY OFFICER ISSUED COMPOSITE ARMOR, PAINTED WITH THE ALL TOO FAMILIAR AQUA BLUE & FOREST GREEN COLORING. THE COMPOSITE ARMOR FOR OFFICERS HAD KRAYT SCALE REINFORCING ON EVERY PIECE MAKING IT THAT MUCH MORE DURABLE THAN STANDARD ISSUE. I TRIED ON FOR THE FIRST TIME THE SPECIAL CLOTHES FALLON FAITH HAD MADE ESPECIALLY FOR ME. HER AND I HAD TALKED ABOUT MAKING SPECIAL CLOTHING TO BE LESS HINDERING AND ALLOW MORE PRECISE MOVEMENT FOR BETTER PROCEDURES, MAKING ME MORE PROFICIENT AT MY DUTIES. SOMETHING I FEEL MAY BE VERY NEEDED TONIGHT.
    MAKING MY WAY BACK TO THE ALAMO I COULD SEE THE WHOLE CITY HAD GONE INTO FULL ALERT STATUS. EVERYONE WAS MOVING WITH A PURPOSE NOW. I APPROACHED THE PATHWAY ONLY TO BE SUDDENLY STOPPED BY A YOUNG ENSIGN.
    “HALT, YOU ARE IN A RESTRICTED AREA.”
    “MY APOLOGIZES I AM MERELY TRYING TO GET TO POST” I SAID REMOVING MY HELMET. “OFFICER H’TEAD OUYOT, NO SIR MY APOLOGIZES, WE HAVE ORDERS TO LOCK DOWN THE AREA TO EVERYONE” THE YOUNG RECRUIT SAID TRYING TO SOUND CONFIDENT. “NO APOLOGY NEEDED TROOPER, I’LL BE ON MY WAY AND KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN.” I COULD HIM STAND A LITTLE STRAIGHTER AT MY COMMENT AS HE SALUTED I CONTINUED OFF TOWARDS THE ALAMO ON FOOT. ALL THE TIME, ALL THE LABOR, ALL THE DEDICATION, AND ALL THE PLANNING COMING TO FRUITION. HERE IT WAS, AS IF SEEING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME I STOOD IN AWE AT THE SIGHT OF IT. IFC PERSONNEL WERE EVERYWHERE, RUNNING BETWEEN TURRETS, CHECKING THE SHUTTLE AND LANDING PAD. MEDICAL DROIDS BEING RUSHED INTO THE CLONING FACILITY, SO MUCH HAPPENING AT ONCE. IT ALL HAPPENED IN SUCH A SHORT TIME, JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE GRAND SCHEME OF OUR COMMANDER AT WORK. I SAW A GROUP OF OFFICERS STANDING IN THE FRONT DOORWAY OF THE ALAMO AND RAN TOWARDS THEM WITH OUYOT RIGHT BEHIND ME.
    “EVENING DR. H” OPTIQUE MARQUIS GREETED ME WITH A SMILE ON HER FACE. THERE WE WERE, THE IFC OFFICERS SURROUNDED BY A REGIMENT OF NEAR TO FAIRLY TROOPS, A HANDFUL OF EXPERIENCED VETERANS AMONGST ALL OF IT. THEN THE CHAOS SEEMED TO SETTLE FOR A MOMENT, COMMANDER JOEBANE WAS COMING DOWN THE PATHWAY. “EVENING OFFICERS.” HE SAID DRYLY. IN UNISON WE REPLIED “EVENING COMMANDER JOEBANE”. HE TOOK A MOMENT TO LOOK AT EACH ONE OF US BEFORE HE SAID “I HOPE YOU ARE ALL WELL PREPARED FOR TONIGHT. I AM NOT EXPECTING ANY REBEL INTRUSION, BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN WE LAX ON THE SECURITY. I WANT YOUR BEST TONIGHT, FOR AS LONG AS IT TAKES”. WE ALL LOOKED AT ONE ANOTHER AS IF DEEP DOWN WE ALL KNEW THE SAME THING, THAT TONIGHT WE WERE IN FOR MORE THAN WE COULD IMAGINE.
    THEN ALL AT ONCE TIME STOOD STILL, I DON’T THINK ANYONE KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THE FIRST FOR MOMENTS. RATHER NO ONE WANTED TO BELIEVE IT WHAT HAD JUST TAKEN PLACE. FOR THAT BRIEF MOMENT I FELT SOMETHING, I FELT REGRET, REGRET FOR NOT DOING MY JOB BETTER. REGRET FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO GET TO EVERYONE. REGRET FOR NOT DOING A BETTER JOB OF REINFORCING THE SOUTH WALL. THE AIR WAS FILLED WITH DUST, DIRT, AND DEBRIS AND THEN PLASMA & LASERS SHOTS CAME BLAZING OUT OF THE SMOKE FROM THE SOUTH WALL. THERE WERE TROOPERS WHO GOT CAUGHT IN THE BLAST, THEY HAD NO CHANCE AT ALL, BUT THE ONES WHO WERE EITHER FROZEN WITH FEAR OR PINNED DOWN, I WANTED TO GET TO THEM AND HELP THEM BUT KNEW BETTER. WE GATHERED OUR BEARING AND MADE A QUICK RETREAT INTO THE HQ, WE TRIED LAYING DOWN COVER FIRE BUT IN ALL THE CHAOS IT WAS ALL WILD BLASTING.
    I TRIED TO TEND TO THE WOUNDED QUICKLY BUT THEIR WAS TOO MANY TOO QUICKLY. AS I WAS TENDING TO A UNCONSCIENCE PATIENT I LOOKED UP, TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HOW THIS HAPPENED. I SAW COMMANDER JOEBANE TALKING WITH THE OTHER OFFICERS UNDER COVER, BUT BEFORE HE EVEN SAID IT WE ALL KNEW IT. THE ONLY POSSIBLE WAY THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED. IMPERIAL FOO CORPS AND FOOVILLE HAD BEEN BETRAYED, BY WHO WE DON’T KNOW BUT AT THIS MOMENT IT DIDN’T MATTER. THE ACT HAD BEEN DONE, AND NOW WE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO FIGHT, TO FIGHT FOR THE ALAMO.

    CUT OFF FROM THE REST OF FOOVILLE, THE REBELS WERE OVERWHELMING THE REMAINING FOOS OUTSIDE THE HQ. IF WE WERE GOING TO ACT, NOW WAS THE TIME. COMMANDER JOEBANE SPOKE QUICKLY AND CLEARLY “WE NEED TO RETAKE THE CLONER AND LURE THE REBELS OUT OF THE ALAMO PERIMETER. OPTIQUE, JADUE, & AROM YOU TWO REMAIN IN THE HQ AND PREVENT THEM FROM ENTERING AND STARTING THE COUNTDOWN, THEY ABSOLUTELY CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO DO THAT. PLEE’ARK , MYSELF, SALILAA, VASHH, TUATHA, AND H’TEAD WE WILL MAKE A RUN THROUGH THE PATHWAY TO THE RIVER, WE WILL USE THE CITY TO OUR ADVANTAGE, WE KNOW THE LAYOUT BETTER THAN THEY DO. “
    “JOEBANE, I HAVE AN IDEA I’M NOT SURE HOW WELL IT’LL WORK BUT IT MIGHT BE OUR BEST SHOT. DR. PADDINGTON & I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON A WAY TO OVER EXELERATE BLOOD CLOTTING AND A BODY’S NATURAL RESTORATION. WHILE I CANNOT MEND OR AUGMENT YOUR MIND, THIS SHOULD PROVE TO BE MORE THAN HELPFUL”.
    “WE HAVE LITTLE TIME, HURRY H” JOE SAID WITH MORE URGENCY IN HIS VOICE THIS TIME. MOVING QUICKLY I APPLIED THE ENHANCEMENTS TO COMMANDER JOEBANE, THE RESULTS WERE QUICK TO SHOW. AFTER I FINISHED APPLYING THE LAST OF THE ENHANCEMENTS I REALIZED I DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH TO APPLY IT A SECOND TIME. “COMMANDER UNFORTUNATELY THIS IS ALL I HAVE PREPARED FOR, I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO APPLY TO ANYONE ELSE” I BIT OUT GRIMLY. JOEBANE OPENED AND CLOSED HIS HANDS A FEW TIMES, TRYING TO GET A FEEL FOR THE ENHANCEMENTS COURSING THROUGH HIS VEINS. I HAD NOT TESTED THIS, NOR WAS I SURE OF THE SIDE EFFECTS, BUT WE HAD NO OTHER OPTIONS AND THIS SEEMED LIKE THE BEST ACTION TO TAKE. “THEN WE WILL HAVE TO MAKE IT COUNT, WE HAVE NO MORE TIME TO SPARE.” JOE SAID AS HE STOOD UP TO HIS FULL HEIGHT UNHOLSTERING HIS WEAPONS. “TIME TO ACT FOOS”.
    WHEN THE DOOR TO THE HQ SLID OPEN I COULDN’T BELIEVE MY EYES, SO MUCH DESTRUCTION AND DEATH WAS EVERYWHERE I LOOKED. JUST MOMENTS AGO, THERE WAS ORDER AND STRUCTURE ALSO STRENGTH AND SAFETY. NO TIME FOR REMORSE, I REACHED BACK AND GRABBED THE DATHOMIR VIBROAXE. I FELT A SORT OF ODD ENERGY COMING FROM IT. NOT ODD, BUT AS IF IT WAS TRYING TO REACH OUT AND GIVE ME ITS STRENGTH. THE FIRST WAVE OF REBELS WERE BEFORE US IN A FLASH, JOEBANE BROUGHT THEM DOWN IN A BLAZE OF FIRE FROM HIS FLAME THROWER. THE SECOND WAVE APPEARED JUST AS QUICK, PLEE’ARK TREATED THEM TO A SIMILAR FATE. VASHH AND SALILAA PUSH PAST THE SCORCHING CORPSES TAKING DOWN THE NEXT SET OF REBELS TO MEET THEM HEAD ON. I WAS FOLLOWING CLOSELY TO COMMANDER JOEBANE, WITH PLEE’ARK FOLLOWING ME. WE MADE IT TO THE PATHWAY, PAST ALL THE BODIES & MESS STREWN ABOUT EVERYWHERE. REBELS SEEMED TO APPEAR AND FALL SO QUICKLY I COULDN’T KEEP UP. I JUST KEPT FOCUSING ON KEEPING THE TEAM HEALED UP, AND THEN AS WE REACHED THE MOUTH OF THE PATHWAY I FELT A SURGE OF ENERGY FROM THE VIBROAXE. AND JUST LIKE THAT A SET OF FLAMETHROWERS AND BLASTER FIRE CAME AT US FROM ALL DIRECTIONS. I LOOKED BUT IN THE MOMENT I TOOK COVER JOEBANE HAD MADE A MAD DASH PAST ALL OF IT SOMEHOW, JADUE & SALILAA HAD CAUGHT FIRE PLEE’ARK AND TUATHA WERE ALREADY MAKING THEIR WAY TOWARDS A LARGE GROUP OF REBELS. I WAS CLOSE ENOUGH TO REALIZE WHAT I SAW ON THE ARMOR OF THE REBELS, IT WAS THE SYMBOL OF A WELL KNOWN REBEL SYNDICATE CALLED IFU. I KNEW THE CODENAMES, I KNEW THEM WELL ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT THEY WEREN’T TO BE UNDERESTIMATED.
    I OPENED THE FIRE BLANKET MODULE I BROUGHT WITH ME, CURSING MYSELF FOR NOT PREPARING BETTER. I ONLY HAD A HANDFUL OF THEM TO USE. I’D HAVE TO USE THEM WISELY FOR THIS FIGHT, AFTERALL NOW WE WERE ABLE TO REACH THE RIVER. I QUICKLY APPLIED THE BLANKETS TO SALILAA & VASHH, GAVE THEM SOME STIMS AND THEN GOT READY TO FIGHT. MY FIRST FIGHT, IWAZ A REBEL PISTOLEER, AND A WELL KNOWN DIRTY FIGHTER. I HAD TANGLED WITH HIM BEFORE, THEN I WAS NEW TO THE EMPIRE AND NEW TO THE WHOLE GALATIC CIVIL WAR, TODAY WOULD BE DIFFERENT.
    HIS EYES NARROWED ON ME, HIS HANDS MOVED LIKE LIGHTNING, THE FIRST FEW BLASTER BOLTS I MANAGED TO DODGE WERE EITHER PURE LUCK OR SOME INATE REACTION. DODGING & WEAVING I WAS ATTEMPTING TO CLOSE THE DISTANCE AS HE ATTEMPTED TO DO JUST THE OPPOSITE. BLASTER FIRE WAS ALL I SAW, I TIGHTENED MY GRIP ON THE VIBROAXE FEELING THE SURGE OF POWER COMING FROM IT. I MOVED QUICKER THAN I HAVE EVER MOVED CLOSING IN ON IWAZ, EVERY STEP CLOSER FELT LIKE ANOTHER STEP CLOSER TO VICTORY I KNEW IF I COULD GET CLOSE ENOUGH I COULD LAND A FEW CRIPPLING BLOWS. THEN HE WENT INTO A ROLL TO A KNEE FOLLOWED BY A PRECISE VOLLEY OF PISTOL FIRE. I FELT THE HOT FIRE PAIN IN MY THIGH AS I WENT TO THE GROUND, AND THEN THE AXE AS IF SPEAKING TO ME RELEASED ANOTHER SURGE OF ENERGY INTO MY HAND AND THROUGH MY BODY. I QUICKLY INJECTED A HIGH OUTPUT STIM PACK “D” FEELING ONE-HUNDRED PERCENT I JUMPED BACK TO MY FEET INTO A FULL SPRINT. IWAZ STUMBLED BACKWARDS SHOOTING A FEW AWKWARD SHORT VOLLEYS.
    TWENTY-FIVE METERS THEN TWENTY METERS, JUST FIVE MORE METERS AND I COULD PERFORM A EXTENDED POLEARM LUNGE AT MY ENEMY, THAT WAS ALL I NEEDED. I CLOSED IN, THREE METERS LEFT, THEN TWO METERS, AND FINALLY ZERO METERS. I LUNGED THROUGH THE AIR, I COULD SMELL THE IONIZED WAVES FROM ALL THE BLASTER SHOTS AS I SAILED TOWARDS MY TARGET. MY VIBROAXE WAS DEAD ON TARGET, IT MADE CONTACT WITH HIS RIGHT LEG. IWAZ DROPPED TO A KNEEL, CLEARLY IN PAIN BUT I HAD NO TIME FOR PASSION EVEN AS A DOCTOR, I COULD FEEL THE ENERGY FROM MY AXE NOW IT FELT PULSING AND HUNGRY. HUNGRY FOR MORE, IT HAD ITS TASTE OF BLOOD & WARFARE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN WHO KNOWS HOW LONG, AND IT WANTED MORE. I LET GO AND LET IT GUIDE ME, I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS REALLY ME STRIKING THE BLOWS OR THE AXE. I MADE A ARCING MOTION WITH THE AXE AND SWEPT THE LEGS OUT FROM UNDER MY OPPONET. HE FELL TO HIS BACK AND LOOKED UP AT ME, I RAISED MY ARMS HIGH AND BROUGHT THE TIP OF THE AXE DOWN HARD TO A PLEASING CRACKING NOISE FOLLOWED BY A THROAT GURGLING NOISE. I KNEW I HAD CRACKED A RIB AND HIS BREASTPLATE, ONE MORE BLOW LEFT. I RAISED MY ARMS HIGH IN THE AIR READYING TO LAND THE LAST BLOW. I COULD FEEL THE ENERGY FROM THE VIBROAXE RUNNING THROUGH ME. I STARTED TO BRING DOWN THE AXE ONE LAST TIME WHEN A PAIR OF HANDS REACHED OUT AND STOPPED ME. IN A PLAINLY STERN VOICE JOEBANE SAID “OFFICER H’TEAD, YOU’RE NEEDED AT THE CLONING FACILITY. THE REBELS HAVE BEEN DEFEATED AND THEY ARE IN FULL RETREAT.” OUR EYES MET, I WANTED SO BADLY TO BRING THE AXE DOWN HARD ON IWAZ TO FINISH HIM BUT JOE WOULD NOT RELINQUISH HIS GRIP. JOEBANE REPEATED “OFFICER H’TEAD, YOU’RE SERVICES ARE NEEDED AT THE CLONING CENTER IMMEDIATELY.” I FINALLY CONCEDED AND LET MY ARMS DROP TO MY SIDE WITH A SIGH. I TOOK ONE LAST LOOK AT MY OPPONET, I COULD SEE THE EFFECTS OF THE AXE TAKING AFFECT, HE WOULD BE DEAD SOON ANYHOW.
    AS I MADE MY WAY TO THE CLONING CENTER IFC WAS ALREADY CLEANING UP THE DEBRIS & MESS SCATTERED ABOUT EVERYWHERE. I HAD A LOT TO THINK ABOUT REGARDING THE LAST TWELVE HOURS. RIGHT NOW I NEEDED TO FOCUS ON MY DUTIES AS MEDICAL OFFICER, THEIR WERE LOTS OF SUFFERING AND WOUNDED FOOS THAT NEEDED MY CARE. I WOULD JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND DEAL WITH MY OWN DEMONS ANOTHER TIME.
    IT WAS MID MORNING THE FOLLOWING DAY AND I WAS EXTRACTING THE FINAL DROPS OF BACTA FROM MY LAST FEW PATIENCE. THE DOOR TO MY MEDICAL FACILITY SLID OPEN AND IN WALKED COMMANDER JOEBANE. HE WAS TAKING HIS TIME, VISITING EVERY SOLDIER PERSONALLY THANKING THEM FOR THEIR SERVICES AND WISHING THEM A QUICK RECOVERY. “GOOD MORNING DOCTOR, HOW ARE THINGS?” HE SAID WARMLY. “GOOD ACTUALLY JUST WORKING ON EXTRACTING THE LAST OF THE BACTA FROM THE LAST FEW PATIENCE NOW, EVERY DROP COUNTS”. “GOOD, I’D LIKE TO TALK TO YOU IN PRIVATE. I WILL WAIT FOR YOU IN YOUR OFFICE WHILE YOU FINISH”. HE TURNED AND WALKED TOWARDS THE OFFICE. I GOT THE LAST FEW DROPS OF BACTA AND SENT THE SOLDIER ON HIS WAY. WHAT COULD THIS POSSIBLY BE? A CONGRATULATIONS FOR PERFORMANCE? OR THIS IS WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE BETTER SPEECH.
    “LAST NIGHT I SAW SOMETHING I WAS NOT PREPARED OR EXPECTED TO SEE.” HE STARTED THE MOMENT I WALKED INTO THE ROOM.
    “WE JUST NEED TO CHECK ALL RECENT COMMUNICATIONS AND START A RESEARCH TEAM TO FIND THE SPY TO GET THIS TAKEN CARE OF SOON.”
    “THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE, BUT I WAS TALKING ABOUT YOU H. I HAVE NEVER SEEN YOU ACT LIKE THAT, YOU ARE A OFFICER OF IFC AND A DOCTOR, SEEKING DEATH MAY BE THE CASE FOR OTHER WARRIORS BUT NEVER YOU.”
    “I AGREE, I DON’T KNOW WHAT CAME OVER ME. ACTUALLY I DO, THAT VIBROAXE MAYBE BUT HOW?”
    “YOU MUST MEAN THE DATHOMIR WEAPON. WELL NIGHTSISTERS ARE FORCE SENSITIVE CREATURES, YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT JEDI & SITH ARE CAPABLE OF CREATING HOLOCRONS. WELL THEY CAN PASS ON THEIR POWER AND EVEN THEIR SOULD IN ANY OBJECT. WHILE SOME SEE THESE ITEMS ARE ARTIFACTS OF POWER, OTHERS SEE THEM AS DEVICES OF EVIL.”
    “WHAT DO YOU SEE THEM AS?”
    “I BELIEVE IT IS USER SPECIFIC. IF YOU AREN’T AWARE OF IT, IT MAKES IT MORE DIFFICULT TO CONTROL. NOW THAT YOU KNOW, YOU MUST MAKE A CONSCIENCE EFFORT TO KEEP YOURSELF IN CONTROL WHEN WIELDING THAT WEAPON. WE WON LAST NIGHT H, BARELY BUT WE WON. THERE IS A LOT THAT WILL BE CHANING GOING FORWARD AND I WANT EVERYONE PERPARED FOR IT. HAVE A GOOD DAY H.” JOE LEFT WITHOUT SAYING ANOTHER WORD. I SAT IN MY OFFICE THINKING TO MYSELF. THE REBELS HAD BEEN BEATEN AND WE WON THAT BATTLE, BUT NOW THEY WILL WANT REVENGE MAYBE WE HAD IT EASY THIS TIME. WHAT DID JOE MEAN ABOUT CONTROL? CAN I CONTROL THE AXE OR WILL IT CONTROL ME? ONLY TIME WILL TELL, BUT FROM THIS DAY FORWARD NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME.

    I will do my best to edit this seeing how copy & paste from word doesn't look as good. My bad.

  5. #25
    holy crap man. that hurts my eyes.

  6. Be worth it's own posts IMO, needs formatting .. makes eyes bleed...

  7. After reading I'd say that's some excellent writing that deserves an edit and a place in the new guild history section we are creating with the new CMS. Anyone want to take a stab at editing this for H?
