"That's 'what's going on.'"

Oliver looked on the big impertial ships, and tried to take a deep breath, but it wasen't a succes. He did shaking. "Well...anyone who knows, where Beryl...is...?"

"she's in enginneering." Nic answered to oliver as he continued looking at the sensors, "they'll be in weapons range 30 seconds, we need those thrusters now!" Nic shouted into the intercom.

"Yeah, Beryl. You can help." Cloud said. "Toggle that switch over there." As Beryl toggled the switch, Cloud snipped a couple of wires and put them together in another order. "That should do it. Try it Nic."


Freakin' sweet!

"Let's hope this buys us the time we need," Beryl whispered under her breath. "Thrusters go, Jack!" she hollered to the bridge on the comm. "Sublights back on line in thirty five seconds!"

She gave Cloud a hopeful grin, although she was beginning to get nervous now. If they got boarded.... Her grin faded. Best not even to think about it.

"Spin us around Jack, then move us forward as fast as you can with the thrusters." Nic Ordered as he transfered the shields power to the rear.

Beryl felt the ship change directions. She smiled at Cloud. "We're moving! Good work!"

The restart timer was counting down. Ten, nine, eight....

As Cloud was still underneath the panels, Beryl flipped the switches for restart...

Five, four, three, two....

...saving the last switch for...

One.

She flipped the last switch, and the sublight engines started to whine.

"Sublight engines on!" she screamed into the comm. "Hit it!"

The Echo quickly Began to fly forward as the Imperial vessek began to fire on the Echos rear shields. It moved forward for less than 10 seconds before the hyperspace engines powered up and shot the ship into Hyperspace.

Nic sat back into his chair and relaxed "Nice one crew." He said pressing the intercom button. "We should make it to corellia within the hour."

Corellia? Beryl exhaled a sigh of relief. She could do with a visit home.

"I don't know about you, Cloud, but I sure could use a drink about now." She thought about Oliver's boxes of 'Jawa Brew' hidden under her bed, then shuddered. No, not something quite that strong. Although...

"Hey, I've got a bottle of Corellian Ale hidden behind the flour canister in the galley?" she said conspiratorially to Cloud. "Finish up here and come join me. You deserve a treat."

Ryshana sighed to herself all over again. It was a bit curious, though, since she still felt that same pressing darkness. If Riebe is gone, and we're in the clear, then why... Ryshana started to think. As she finished taking off the suit, Ryshana remembered that her lightsaber was still in the pocket of the spacesuit. Pulling it out, she paused for a moment.

Slowly, Ryshana began to clear her mind. Focusing inwards on herself, she finally calmed herself down. Taking off the outer cloak of her robes, Ryshana breathed in deeply. Now in just modest coverings, Ryshana felt more at ease with herself. Igniting her lightsaber, Ryshana began to go through an exercise program. In her mind, Ryshana could envision enemies attacking from all directions as she performed the exercise. To any bystander, it would appear that she was doing a particularly dangerous dance with her lightsaber. However, to anyone trained in the martial arts, they would recognize exactly what she was doing.

"Alright." Cloud said to Beryl in a proud voice. As Beryl walked away, he knew he had done good for the crew and deserved a good treat. He finished up and headed to the galley.

In the galley, Beryl reached into one of the food storage units and fumbled about until her hand felt the bottle she had hidden there. "Got it," she said, pulling out the bottle and setting it on the table.

She set out two glasses, and poured each of them a drink, then set the open bottle on the table. She figured that the fragrance would entice Nic and the others to come out to join them at some point. Corellian ale had a distinctive nutty type of smell, but it had a smooth taste and felt silky on the way down. A far cry from Juma Juice. Or any type of Jawa concoction. All in all, it was extremely tasty.

"To a job well done," she said to Cloud by way of a toast. "And to Corellia. Home port of traders, shipbuilders, and the best trained soldiers in the Galaxy."

She had wanted to go home for a while, but never pressed the issue with Nic, figuring that he would eventually make it there one day. All traders did. Traders like her brother, Rayne.

Hmm...Rayne.... Rayne might be able to unload that Jawa brew. He owns his own transport company. Surely he could find a buyer for Oliver. And, I might even be able to convince him to take the swoop bike cargo to Alderaan for us. When Nic shows up, I'll mention that to him. After I apologise to him for lying about the Headhunter, that is.

"Coreilla? Sounds nice to me" he mumbled, while he walked back to his room. He took a big gulp of one of his drinks from Dantooine, and began to sleep. All outside could hear, that he had "one of these nightmares" again.

"A toast," Cloud started. "To the Rebel Alliance for doing the right thing and standing up for freedom, justice, and other things. Also, another toast Corellia." He drank from his glass. Then, something in the back of his mind told him that Sephiroth was near. Suprised, he started to choke on his ale.

Nic walked in as he heard Cloud make his toast, he laughed quickly and continued over to the Water tap. He never knew why people made a big deal about the rebel alliance, they were small and completly fractured. The word 'Alliance' was virtually useless when talking about these rebels, they were so busy arguing amongst themselves the empire barely considered them nusance let alone a serious threat.

"Alliance is a relative term," Jana said, coming in from the other side of the room. "Until they find a leader... if they can't find a leader, they will never truly be allied. And if they're never truly allied, they've no hope of survival. The Empire is allied... all who serve do so under a common fear."

She shrugged. "I'll be in my room if anyone needs me."

She headed off that way.

As Jana marched off down the corridor, Beryl raised a solitary eyebrow.

Well...Jana sounded rather... 'snippy' just then. Hmmm? Suppose it has anything to do with Tarla or Riebe or whatever she wants to call herself these days?

She shrugged. She'd talk to Jana later.

"Erm...Nic?" Beryl started. "I owe you an apology. For lying to you earlier about the Headhunter. I know you already know that's it's damaged. But I didn't lie to you just cover up my mistake. I did it because I didn't think you needed the added worry, with all that's happened lately. I'm sorry." She paused. "I'll fix it, no cost to you, don't worry. Oh," she added brightening a bit. "And my brother Rayne runs a transport company in the Corellian system. I'm sure he could help us deliver those swoops to Alderaan. I'll contact him if you want me to."

Nic heard Beryl out and smiled at her after she finished "Firstly, ou don't need to apolgise, I'd be more worried if you never took damage, that would mean you're not doing your job." Nic paused for a second while he took a sip of his drink. "Secondly, We can use your brrother as a last resort, we may be able to get good money for the bikes on Corellia by cutting out the middle man."

Nic placed his drink on the table "I'm going to talk to Jana... But see if your brother can sought us out a discreet landing area." Nic then walked off towards Jana's room and knocked on her Door.

"Don't want to talk," Jana's muffled voice came through her door. "Go away."

"C'mon Jana, this ain't the first time someone stabbed us in the back. Remember that Rodian Coruscant, he got what was comin' to him and so will this Reibe." Nic said through the door. "Wait this is about reibe ain't it and not about us going to Corellia? 'cos if it is we ain't got much choice, we're low on fuel and whare else are we going to get some."

"It's not what happened," Jana said, her voice barely audible through the door. "It's who did it."

"Jana, This Reibe, Has obviously been keeping somthing from you. Hell, she's changed her name various times and ain't aged in over a decade." Nic said leaning against the wall next to her door. "Look it's over now, We'll proberly never see again."

When Nic left the common room, Beryl took the opportunity to pour herself and Cloud another drink. "To forgiving captains, and a clean conscience," she said, raising her glass. She downed the shot, then smiled with relief. "Ah! Nothing beats Corellian ale."

She rose from the table. "I'll be right back. Got to go and look up the freq to contact my brother."

In the corridor, Nic was standing directly across from her door, talking to Jana's. "C'mon Jana, this ain't the first time someone stabbed us in the back."

Beryl raised her eyebrows, but slipped into her own room without comment.

Ooh....not getting involved, not getting involved, NOT getting involved.... Could end up in a lover's spat. Not getting involved! I can talk to Jana later. Much later. Rayne's freq. Datapad with Rayne's freq. Ah! There it is.

Beryl came out of her room, a datapad in hand. Nic was now leaning up against the wall.

Uh, oh. Bad sign. Looks like he's preparing to set up camp. This could be a long one. Unless, of course, Jana opens her door and throws something at him. But I'm not hanging around for that.

"Jana, this Reibe has obviously been keeping something from you," Nic was saying. "Hell, she's changed her name various times and ain't aged in over a decade. Look it's over now. We'll probably never see her again."

Beryl bit her lip to keep from commenting on that one, although she did give Nic a 'just-who-exactly-do-you-think-you're-kidding' look before she headed off to the bridge.

It didn't take her long to contact her brother Rayne. He ran a transport company. He had comm repeaters stationed all over the main corridors.

As soon as she and Rayne had exchanged greetings, she wasted no time in explaining her situation. "I was having a discussion with some of my friends, and wondered if you could resolve a slight problem to settle a bet between us. I said they could use Preevay's Formula to optimise engine output. They thought that Vimer's Formula was the only right one to use, but their figures seem a bit high to me. What do you think?"

There was a pause.

"I agree with you," Rayne's staticky voice answered. "Vimer's would work, but Preevay's would work better. But only if you substitute the first constant in tandum with the the calculated variable for the type of fuel you are using. What fuel are you using?"

"A medium grade plasmotic."

Another pause. "Then you should get away with using 2.4 as your constant, and 8.65 for your variable."

"2.4 and 8.65?"

"That's right."

"Thanks, Rayne. You've earned yourself a commission!"

She disconnected the comm and turned to Jack. "My brother gave us a safe place to land on Corellia without being detected by any Imps or Corellian security. When you come out of hyperspace, approach on vector 24 and set a course heading of 86. Land in Hanger 5. I'll let Nic know." She turned to leave. "Oh, and I've opened my last bottle of Corellian ale," she added. "Feel free to join us."

On her way off the bridge, she thought she heard Jack utter a grunt. She sighed. One of these days, I'm going to have to ask him if that's a good grunt or a bad grunt. Still can't tell.

She rejoined Cloud in the common room. "Now, where were we?"

"We were going to do another toast." Cloud said. "And you're right. Nothing beats Corallian ale." He took a deep drink from his glass like before. He puts his glass down. Once again, he gets the feeling Sephiroth is near. "Something is wrong." Cloud says in an under-his-breath-so-that-only-Beryl-can-hear-voice. "I can feel it."

"Sure," Jana muttered, finally opening the door. She looked more angry than anything. "Fine. It's done. She's gone. We'll move on."

She forced a smile and said, "I think I'd just like a few minutes alone. I'll be out later. Don't let the others go crazy while I'm in here."

Without waiting for an answer, she shut the door again.

Beryl frowned slightly. She had been feeling that something was 'wrong' ever since they picked up Ryshana, but she wasn't about to say anything about it. People might think she was...well, spooky. She had premonitions now and again, part of why she was such a good pilot, but she didn't dare mention it to anyone.

"What's wrong? What do you feel?" she asked him.

"Who's Sephiroth?" Beryl asked. She never figured Cloud for having enemies. He was too nice of a guy.

As Jana's door slammed in Nic's face he turned around and headed down the ladder, as he went down he heard a strange Buzzing noise coming from the cargo hold. Nic stepped on to the catwalk and looked down over the Cargo Holds floor.

Ryshanna was doing what Could only be described as an odd Dance with a lightsabre. "Careful there Jedi, you could poke someones eye out with that thing."

I dont beleive i've ever been to Corellian before Jack thought to himself as he brought the ship out of hyperspace. Jack hit the inter-com and said into the microphone "We're here. Proceeding to the cordinants Beryl gave me!"


Make love, not toast.

There were thousands of them in Ryshana's mind. They were all coming for her and trying to kill her. Thousands of stormtroopers. Time after time, she was blocking bolts, performing acrobatics, stabbing and slicing, and on occasion, parrying other sword attacks.

"Careful there Jedi, you could poke someones eye out with that thing."

As Ryshana heard Nic speak, she suddenly stopped. Bringing the lightsaber to bear by her head, she deactivated it. "I perfectly aware of what's going on in this cargo bay, Captain. Besides, it doesn't hurt to get a bit of exercise."

"It's a long tale, Beryl," Cloud said. "I'm not sure you'd be interested."

Beryl gave him a reassuring nod. It was obvious to her that Cloud was uncomfortable discussing the matter at the moment. "Well, perhaps this isn't the right moment to discuss it," she said diplomatically. "But despite being a 'gregarious Corellian,'" she said, grinning, "I am a good listener when I need to be. And I can keep a secret. And, if this Sephiroth is on Corellia, let me know if there's anything I can do to help. This is my homeworld. I've got connections."

"We're here!" Jack's voice came over the comm. "Proceeding to the cordinants Beryl gave me!"

"Wow, that was quick!" Beryl rose, but not before checking the bottle of ale. It was almost gone. "Might as well finish this up," she said to Cloud. "I'll pick up some more while we're here." She split the last of the ale between their two glasses, then downed hers quickly. "Now, I've got something to 'discuss' with our first mate before we land." She started to leave, then paused. "Oh, say," she said over her shoulder. "Why don't you make up a list of parts that we need--you know, the ones that Nic won't fork out for? I'll 'convince' my brother get them for us. He's rich. He can afford them."

She headed down the corridor towards Jana's room. Nic was no longer there, apparently had given up his seige, broken camp, and moved on. Unless he was inside....

Beryl frowned a bit, then leaned her ear closer to the door. She didn't hear anything. She let out a sigh of relief. If Nic was in there, there would have been some sort of noise.

She rapped briskly on the door. "Open up, Short Stuff," she said. "There's something we need to talk about before we land."

And the topic? Well, Riebe/Tarla/Whatever, of course. Beryl disagreed with Jana on her judgement of the mysterious SithHunter's actions. And Beryl wanted to know the real reason behind why Jana thought Tarla had betrayed them.

"Nope," Jana answered shortly. "I need time alone..." Then, she sighed and her door opened, allowing Beryl to slip in. The room was a mess, looking as if a tornado had touched down. The tornado's name was Jana.

"Bit of a mess in here," she mumbled and went back to sitting on the bed and looking up at Beryl. There was a short period of silence before Jana snapped, "You wanted to talk... so talk."

Cloud got started looking for parts that needed to be replaced. "Hmmm..." Cloud thought. He looked at he engine and started to inspect it. "Cooling tubes, ion inciderator, grav generator," and the list went on and on. When he got done, he went back to his room. He picked up a picture of Sephiroth. He was going to show Beryl what he looked like so she could watch for him on Corellia.


Freakin' sweet!

Beryl raised her brow in surprise at the state of Jana’s room.

Bit of a mess? Bit of an understatement, if you ask me!

Beryl herself couldn’t stand clutter, and it took a lot of effort for her to not start straightening things up right there and then. But it was blatantly obvious that Jana was angry about something. Or at someone.

Carefully avoiding the holovids, clothing, and personal grooming items strewn across Jana’s floor, Beryl picked her way towards an upturned chair in the corner. She lifted an item of clothing off of it before righting it and sitting down, but then did a double take at what she was holding. She let the blouse drape from her fingers. It was one of hers, an expensive one, too, as Beryl recalled, that she had let Jana borrow a few months ago. For a night out with Nic on…on…

Ichtor VIII, wasn’t it? Yeah. The ‘Infinity’ nightclub. That was it. Very plush, very pricey, and very picky about their dress code.

“I take it that you’re done with this now?” she said to Jana, as she neatly folded up the blouse and laid it on the edge of the bed.

Jana merely glared at her.

O-kay, so that’s how it’s going to be, is it? Fine. Then I’ll just jump in with both feet and make a splash.

“Tarla Vel would not betray us,” she said bluntly. “Especially not to the likes of the Empire. I wasn’t up on the bridge, so I don’t know what you saw, but I know she would not betray us. Yes, she probably collided with the stabiliser when she detached, but you saw her ship. It was damaged. I can’t for one second believe that she would do something like that on purpose.” She paused for a breath. “Besides, if she wanted to turn us in, she wouldn’t have helped us against that Dreadnaught. Nevermind the fact that she could have rammed us anytime she wanted to, just like she did that Dreadnaught, if she wanted to leave us helpless and adrift for the Imps to pick us up.

“You may have doubts about the Rebellion and the Alliance, but I don’t. And I’ve got three brothers somewhere out there, fighting along side the rebels, that feel the very same way. The more pressure the Empire puts on planets like Corellia and Alderaan, the more resolved and the more unified the rebels become. And I believe that Tarla, Riebe, or whatever she wants to call herself, knows that, too.” She paused for a second. “I know you’re angry with her right now. But whatever she did, she didn’t do it to betray us. You’re wrong about her, Jana.”


Veni, Vidi, Velcro. (I came, I saw, I stuck around)

"You didn't know her that well, Beryl," Jana snapped. "Sure, she was a TCTA instructor. But you saw the same things I saw... how many names she's used since then, all of them presumed dead. She betrayed the Jedi and served the Empire before going missing again."

She swore angrily. "And we now have a Jedi aboard. Don't forget that, Beryl. Remember there was that week early in your graduation year that she didn't teach and didn't leave a reason she wasn't there? One of my best friends vanished that week as well... and was found dead later and all evidence points to one of the false names she used."

"Don't tell me she's not capable," she finished icily. Then, she lashed out, unsure of if she actually meant to or if it simply came out. "At any rate, you and I come from very different backgrounds. If you told me you'd seen your own family arrested by Imperials, I'd not believe you... they certainly have enough money to offer bribes!"

She regretted her words, but she couldn't stop. Flinging Beryl's blouse at her, she snapped, "And yes, you can have your blouse back, you spoilt little brat! Go ahead! Live in your riches and leave poor little me alone!"

Huffing for breath, she dreaded Beryl's response...

Beryl's eyes narrowed at Jana, and her grip tightened on the blouse she had thrown at her. "Spoiled brat?" Something snapped. Maybe it was something that Beryl had stepped on as she rose out of her chair, but it really didn't matter. Beryl's didn't tolerate anyone making insults to her family.

"You're the one acting like a spoiled brat! Look at you! Sulking and pouting and throwing things around just because you suspect someone of doing something that you can't even prove! Lots of people use false names. So what? And maybe Tarla just took a vacation that week because she was sick of teaching passive-aggressive nerfherding nitpickers like you! It doesn't mean she had anything to do with your friend's death. And it doesn't mean she betrayed anyone.

"And as for my family? Yeah, they're rich. But that doesn't mean they don't have principles. Something yours was obviously lacking in!"

Jana glared and stood slowly. This was way beyond her 'look'. "The fact that my family wasn't ass rich doesn't mean we had no principles!" she spat. Her glare deepened. "It just means we had a better understanding of the lower end of the scale... something I seriously doubt you could even spell!"

"And if you care to remember..." she went on. "But why would you? You'd gone off and graduated by then. What do you care for your old school? But perhaps you'd care to remember that, whenever Tarla went on vacation, she announced it and scheduled a substitute."

"Passive aggressive?" she snapped. "It's better than full out aggressive, miss "I nearly killed my instructor at Graduation!" She let out a harsh laugh. "And you want to talk to me about principles? Here's a good one you don't seem to have learned: when people help you, you don't hurt them!"

Beryl’s eyes widened with fury. She'd had enough of Jana's looks and inuendos. “Oh is that so? Well, you’re certainly not being very helpful to me at the moment, so I'll assume that's an invitation!”

Beryl dropped the blouse on the floor and decked Jana in the jaw.

The fight was on!

Jana staggered backward slightly, but her reaction was nothing more than instinct. "Lost your pretty, brat!" she snapped, purposefully stomping on the blouse before taking a swing at Beryl's chin. She missed that, but her momentum carried her into Beryl and they toppled, squirming to the floor.
