Star Wars: The Sith Resurrection Part VII: A Glimmer of Hope
An old freighter came out of hyperspace dangerously close to an asteroid field, but with good reason. Two weeks ago, the Republic lost all contact with the Star Destroyer Cygnus, without anything to indicate that it had been destroyed. Recently, however, Republic Intelligence picked up a garbled signal seeming to originate from the Cygnus, but a good distance away from its last known location. Naturally, it had sent one of its operatives to investigate.
"There it is. That's the Cygnus alright." Jedi Master Komad Kaltas pointed out from the cockpit of the Silver Eagle. The ship was adrift, its hull marred by numerous asteroid collisions, the lights were completely out, and its command tower appeared to have been torn clean off.
"Yeah, but we're way closer to the Hoth system than Geonosis. Something's not right here. There's no way they could have drifted this far in two weeks." Iyav Dourden commented. "I'm contacting Belina, see what you can pick up on the scanner."
"Commander Belina, this is Operative Iyav Dourden. Jedi Master Kaltas and I have confirmation on the RSS Cygnus, awaiting further instructions." He sent out.
"Preliminary scans indicate faint life signs throughout the ship, along with a large cluster in one of the cargo holds. The hull has sustained heavy asteroid damage, the bridge has been completely destroyed, and engines appear to be non-functional." Komad added.
