Even though in a meditative state, Jasra grinned as she connected with Brax. It was comforting to feel his presence, visit his thoughts. But this visit wasn't like the dream. She could envision what he was thinking, but couldn't feel things like she had when she was dreaming--the coolness of the rain, the scents of the forest, the touch of Brax's hand has he caressed her face--she couldn't feel any of it.

"Omwat--it's beautiful, Brax," she said to him, smiling softly. "I can see why your people are so protective over it." Then her smile faded. "I'm worried about you. And I'm lost without you. Is this where you are, Brax? Omwat?"

"I wish I was on Omwat," he said, but shook his head. "But I am going to someplace called ... Naboo, there is a man here, claiming to be the Doctor, but I don't think it's really him. He's nothing like the man we met, in the other time." He frowned, his eyes growing fiantly black with anger and annoyance at the situation.

"Where are you? I can get my ship and come to you, just tell me where ... and I'll be there as fast as I can." He nodded, and caressed her cheek. He felt her speaking, about ot tell him something, when suddenly he was awake. He gasped and fell over, his breath hard and his mind realing. It felt like he'd been punched in the stomach ...

"Brax, I'm on a mission for the J...Brax?" Jasra felt their connection breaking as she sensed he was in pain. Then suddenly, it was gone. "Brax!" she exclaimed, and her eyes sprung open.

She felt nauseous, probably an after effect of breaking the connection too soon, and now she was more worried about her partner than ever. Brax needed her. He was in pain and he needed her.

"The Doctor?" Jasra said to herself, recalling what Brax had said. "So Brax has found the others. All of them." She paused a moment as she tried to calm her feeling of anxiety. "But why Naboo?"

Her desire to reunite with Brax was stronger than ever. Quickly, she moved over to the computer console at the desk and began to search through the known hyperspace routes in area of the Austrak sector where Bastila had disappeared. Perhaps there was a connection between there and....

"There it is." A Naboo hyperspace route. Jasra downloaded the information into her datapad, along with the other known hyperspace routes that intersected that area, then headed for Crystal's room. Surely, Crystal must realise that the Force was leading all of the 'time travelers' back together for a reason, and together they would find a way to convince Karda to go to Naboo.

"What are we going to do?"
"Well Rose, there's nothing we can do, really. Best just play along, and listen to what the man sa- Oh, look at the bird!"
"This isn't the time to-"
"Rose. there's nothing we can do. He's got an Aratech Silenced Blaster at our backs. If we try to escape, we'll end up with a charred hole in our backs. I suggest you relax, and let what happens happen."
"Best listen to the manm Las," said the soldier, smirking.
"I have a question?" she said. "Why does he have a Scottish accent if we're in another galaxy entirely? And... in the distant past?"
"It would take far too long to explain," he said dodgily. "Needless to say, humans are not entirely aware of their full past, now are they?" he smiled.

The soldier led them to a large ornate palace. "It's beautiful," said Rose, awstruck.
"Yes, quite," said her companion, not really looking at it. "Tell me," he turned to the soldier. "I know this is an odd question, but... who is the Monarch, at the moment?" he asked genially.
The soldier glared. "Keep moving," he said, unimpressed. "You are to be detained, and the ship you arrived in detained."
"Oh, don't worry, it's not going anywhere. Not unless I tell it to."
"Even then, it's hit or miss..."

"Here we go again." Kira murmured to Revan as the Ebon Hawk quickly made its way through the atmosphere of Naboo. "Just another whirlwind adventure."

Revan smiled. "Look on the bright side," he said. "No Sith hanging onto our butts."

Kira smiled as well. "Or Mandalorians." she added.

The door to Crystal's quarters slid open as Jasra approached it, inviting her to enter. Crystal was on the other side of the room, occupied with a computer console, but she glanced up as Jasra entered. With a slight smile, she said, "It's good to see you again, Jasra." Then, she returned her attention to the computer.

“Crystal,” Jasra said as she entered the room, “I’ve been thinking. There is obviously something still connecting all of us that were in the ‘old timeline,’ and it must be related to …”

She stopped, and stared over Crystal’s shoulder at the computer terminal. “Oh. So, you’re searching the hyperspace routes that intersect the Austrak sector, too? Good. What do you think about the Naboo route?”

When Crystal looked up at her curiously, Jasra leaned against the edge of the console table and let out a sigh. “It’s imperative that I find Brax,” she explained. “We’ve got a connection… a bond, carried over from… well, from before.” Jasra bit her lower lip. “And it’s more than just a Force bond. It goes… deeper than that.” She frowned slightly. “He occupies my thoughts, all the time. And,” she said, frowning, “he’s in pain. I can feel it. If I don’t find him soon, he’ll die.” She paused for a moment, then continued. “Brax, the others… they are on their way to Naboo. Probably already there by now. And through our bond, Brax told me that the Doctor was with them, too.” She stared at Crystal intently. “Maybe I’m mistaken, but I thought the Doctor told us that he wasn’t supposed to be here. If he corrected the timeline, then why is he back? Unless…,” her voice trailed off. “Crystal, I fear that something else is wrong. Very wrong. We have to find a way to get this ship to Naboo, with or without Karda’s permission.”

The Doctor sealed the door shut behind him. He strolled over to the console and punched a few buttons. An image appeared on the screen - an image ok Kira. A data readout began scrolling across the screen.

Name: Kira Starr
Species: Species: Human
Native Galaxy: 113-68
Native Time Frame: Index 004-13-6, Old Republic Era

A short biography followed, outlining her early life, training records, and a record of her exploits near the end of the Great Jedi Purge, shortly after the Civil War.

He punched in another set of commands, and Revan's face filled the screen.
Name: Revan
Species: Species: Human
Native Galaxy: 113-68
Native Time Frame: Index 004-13-6, Old Republic Era

"The Prodigal Knight," he muttered, smiling slightly.

He punched in yet another few commands. This time, Atton's face appeared.
Name: Undetermined
Designation in current time frame: Atton Rand
Species: Species: Human
Native Galaxy: 113-68
Native Time Frame: Index 004-13-6

Not much data on 'Atton Rand'. No redirects either. I'll have to keep an eye on this one...

He then accessed information on Disciple, Crystal Gray, and Jasra Lantill. Nothing relevant - the timeline had been reverted. But presence of another Time Lord told him that there was still something wrong...
He accessed another databank. An image of a young woman with shoulder length blonde hair appeared.
Name: Rose Tyler
Species: Species: Human
Native Galaxy: 22-3
Native Time Frame: Index 904-83-4, Early 21st Terran Century

Like most humans in the Milky Way, Tyler was no threat. At least, she appeared to be no threat. He pulled up the information on Naboo, and began reading.

"I'm glad you two never seem to want to slow down." Atton murmured as he brought the ship in for docking. "Force knows if you did, the galaxy would fall apart."
A console beeped.
"Incoming transmition. Patching it through." the pilot reported, and hit a few keys on the terminal.
"This is the Naboo Docking Authority. Please identify yourself." a man's voice said.
Kira moved closer to the console. "The Ebon Hawk." she said, "We're here for pleasure. To check up on an old friend." she added, just for good measure.
"Very well, your ID checks out. You may dock in Bay 147. Please enjoy your stay on Naboo."

"They're letting us dock?" said Revan, surprised. "I thought you guys had completely ruined this ship's reputation?"

Crystal frowned. "I don't think that's wise, Jasra," she said quietly. "Look, I want to regroup as much as you do... but the Jedi gave you and Karda a mission. I'm not here to interfere. I'm here to help. I intend to speed this mission up as much as I possibly can..."

She sighed and shifted slightly in her seat. "If not us, who's going to look for Bastila?" Her eyes fell again on the computer and she groaned. "I look at hyperspace routes to settle myself down a bit... relax, let my brain rest. Hyperspace routes may not be straight lines, but each one has a definite beginning and end..."

A few taps to the screen later and the screen was displaying a closer view of the hyperspace routes. Crystal tapped on one and the screen split in half, one half showing the chart and the other showing information on the hyperspace route Crystal had tapped.

"No," she murmured. She tapped the screen several more times and then shook her head. "I've just looked into several potential ways to get to Naboo," she told Jasra. "All of them require a couple of extra jumps, which, if you're trying to do this without Karda's approval, is not the way to go."

She sighed. "Jasra, I know you want to get back to Brax. Believe me, I'd love to get you there... but it looks like we'll have to play along with Karda. I'll do everything in my power to speed up this mission. I'll call on the mental power of every person aboard this ship to increase my telepathic range if I have to, but it's looking like we'll have to find Bastila before we rejoin our friends."

A disappointed silence was shared between them and Crystal said quietly, "I'm sorry."

Kira smiled devilishly. "Ruined? Yes. Completely? Not yet."
"Well, you two have fun." Atton said, getting up, "I have to go get some things before we leave." and with that, he left the cockpit.

Revan watched Atton leave, a dark look on his face. "I don't trust him," he said, finally voicing what he had been thinking since the previous time line.

"I do." Kira said, watching after him, "He's done more for me and the others than he was ever entitled to do. He's put himself on the line countless times and was always there to watch my back. In some ways...he reminds me of someone else I know." she added on as an afterthought, looking pointedly at him.

Revan shook his head. "His thoughs are too clouded. He doesn't want us to know anything about him. He's hiding something, I can feel it. I never had anything to hide. I never lied to you. He has."

"I know what he's lied about, Revan." the Exile answered, "And trust me, if you had a past like his, you would want to hide your thoughts as well."

"That's no excuse," spat Revan, standing quickly. "I'm not exactly proud of my past, either, Kira! I've done horrible things! I killed millions as Darth Revan! I slaughtered men, women, and children! But I don't lie about it! I don't pretend it never happened! I don't betray my friends, change my name, and run away and hide on some **** hole of a planet!"

"Revan!" Kira said, placing her hands on his shoulders, "Settle down. It's just the way he is..." a small smile spread on her features as she realized why he was flying off the handle so easily. "...and it's why he could never be you." She reached up and kissed him lightly, quickly. Then, pulling away, she said, "C'mon. We have work to do."

((I was venting my anger. Better than my rants, right?))

"Truer words were never uttered," said the Doctor, entering the room. "We must find this... other Time Lord... and being him to death."
Revan turned to him. "What about Brax? Have you discovered what's wrong with him?"
"Nothing that I can fix," he answered shortly. "His redundant systems will take over shortly. If not... well, you'll have an ugly blue carcass rotting in your med lab. Now let's get going."

Jasra left Crystal’s quarters and headed for the bridge. If she couldn’t get to Brax, then she would just have to get him to her.

“Ah, there you are,” Karda said, catching her up. “Figured you’d get yourself settled rather quickly.”

“I’m not ‘settled,’” Jasra replied flatly. “I’m just heading to the bridge to use the com system.”

“Oh? Missing Master Verga already?”

Jasra stopped in her tracks and gave him a deadpan look. “Why would I miss him? I hardly know him.”

“What do you mean, you ‘hardly know him?’ He’s been your Master for the past five years.”

“I don’t remember that,” she said, starting toward the bridge again. “And I don’t see how you do either.”

Karda stopped her. “I remember,” he said, her arm firmly in his grip, “because it happened. And if you took time to meditate on it, you’d remember, too.”

“How can you ‘remember’ something that didn’t happen to you?” Jasra asked him. “You were with me on the Ebon Hawk. You were there when the Doctor sent us all back. It happened. This ‘new’ time line, its past, it didn’t happen. Not to me.”

“It did,” Karda said to her. “If it didn’t, you wouldn’t be here.”

“Well I’ve got other things on my mind at the moment.”

“Brax?” Karda asked, cocking his eyebrow.

“Yes.”

Karda sighed. “You’re a Jedi now. You don’t need him anymore.”

Jasra began to fume. “And just who are you to tell me what I need and don’t need? You’re not my Master.” She looked him up and down, then snorted. “I’m not even sure if you’re my friend.”

Before she could turn and walk away from him, Karda grabbed her arm. “How can you say that? I’ve only ever tried to help you. And you… you threw any advice I gave you back in my face and went with that… beast.”

“Brax isn’t a beast!” she said hotly. “He’s a Zedai priest! The leader of his people!”

“And you’re a Jedi,” Karda hissed. He looked around to see if anyone was watching, then dragged Jasra to a quiet alcove in the corridor. “You weren’t abandoned this time,” he said quietly. “You were found. You’ve been given a second chance. I thought that’s what you wanted. To be a Jedi Knight. Don’t throw away this opportunity to follow the path of the Light.”

“How can I get this through your head?” Jasra whispered back. “I’m. Not. A. Jedi. I was a Padawan learner—that’s all. I don’t remember being found and trained by Master Verga. How can I be ready for knighthood trials when I don’t remember having half of my training?”

“Your physical body remembers,” said Karda. “Meditate on it. You’ll find you remember more than you think you do.”

“Look, all I want to do is find Brax,” Jasra said. “That’s all. I don’t want to meditate, or remember, or do any Jedi things. Just find Brax.”

Karda gave her a strange look. “This ‘connection’ you have with him. It’s not just a Force bond. You’re obsessed by him,” he observed.

“I’m….” Jasra stopped herself saying that she was in love. “I’m concerned about him. He’s dying.”

“Dying? How do you know he’s dying? More dreams?”

Jasra bit the inside of her lip as she thought how to answer.

“You’ve connected with him through the Force?” Karda surmised.

“Yes,” she answered, thinking that there wasn’t anything to gain from lying about it. “And he needs me. Physically needs me present, or he’ll die. He and the rest of the Ebon Hawk crew are on Naboo. Now, let me go and contact him.”

“I told you, we are not deviating from our course until….”

“Look, I’m not planning on hijacking the bloody ship and going to Naboo! I just want to contact him so he can come to me.”

Karda took a moment to consider. “And the rest of the Ebon Hawk crew are with him? Kira, Atton... Revan.”

“And the Doctor,” Jasra added.

“The Doctor? But I thought….”

“So did I,” Jasra finished for him. “But Brax said he was there. And that he was… different.”

Karda raised an eyebrow at this. “You discussed this with Crystal?”

Jasra nodded. “And she agreed with you that finding Bastila was the more important thing to do. That’s why I wanted to contact Brax and have him meet us here. Please, Karda, let me contact him.”

Karda went over to a com panel on a nearby wall and contacted the Bridge. “Tylor? Contact the Palace at Naboo. See if their security people can locate any of the crew of the Ebon Hawk or anyone who calls himself ‘The Doctor’. If they're there, send them our co-ordinates so they could meet us if they so choose.”

Jasra breathed a sigh of relief.

“Now,” Karda said to her. “There’s something I want you to do for me.”

“What?”

“Come with me to the med bay,” he said, leading her down the corridor. “I want to run some tests on you.”

“Tests?”

“Tests. I suspect that your ‘obsession’ with Brax might be more than just a ‘Force’ bond.”

Brax had told the others not to disturb him, and so he woke up after having some horrible pains and lay on the floor in a pile. He frowned and pushed up slowly. The ship didn't sound right, they had landed in his unconcious time. He frowned and slowly pushed himself to his feet. He closed his eyes and focused, calming his body.

"We will see Jasra soon." He whispered to himself, a soft humm eminating from his lips, humming a song of his youth to calm his nerves. A song from his training, used to focus the mind.

The Zedai, much like the Jedi found young force adepts and trained them from as early an age as possible. But, unlike the Jedi, they were also encourged to mate with other force senstive Zedai, in hopes of having children that could also become Zedai. Brax was one such child, he had been trained since his first memories to know the force, to control and harness it. His childhood nursery rhymes, the songs his mother sang him to sleep with, his toys. Everything, had been designed to train and focus his mind into being what he was today.

But all of it was coming crashing down upon him, he couldn't focus, even his humming only kept him in control enough to 'seem' in control. He could still feel his hearts pumping a bit to fast, the faint slickness from his temperature being too high. He could feel several of his organs failing slowly, back up organs were working to take their place ... but the rate of detereration was making him ill. He sighed and slipped out of the room, looking around.


There is no Peace. There is Anger.
There is no Fear. There is Power.
There is no Death. There is Immortality.
There is no Weakness. There is the Dark Side.

“Right,” Karda said to the medic as Jasra laid down on her back on the medical table. “I’d like you to run a chemical analysis on her blood. To see if there is anything…unusual.”

“Well, she doesn’t have to lay down to do that,” the medic said, picking up a hand held analyser and moving towards Jasra’s arm. “It’ll just take a sec…”

Karda stopped him. “I need you to do this while she’s meditating.”

“Meditating?” Jasra sat up. “I told you, I don’t want to….”

“I’d like you to see if you can re-establish contact with Brax,” Karda said to her obvious surprise. “And when you’ve made contact with him,” Karda turned to the medic, “that’s when I want you to run the analysis.”

The medic nodded. “Fine,” he said, with a skeptical undertone. “Just tell me when.”

Jasra let out a deep sigh. “I don’t know if I can do this with you two staring at me,” she said.

“Just relax and try,” Karda said, and he sat down in a chair a few feet away from her. He motioned for the medic to take the seat next to him. “I promise, we won’t interfere.”

Reluctantly, Jasra laid back down, then closed her eyes, and tried to concentrate on Brax. What seemed like minutes passed, until finally, she felt herself drift further and further away, until she thought she could almost feel him…

”Brax?” she called out from her mind. “Where are you? You’re in pain. I can feel it. Where are you? How can I help you if I can’t find you? Brax….?”

"Jasra?" He wasn't mediting or unconious, he blinked a few times and then closed his eyes, sensing some... medical labratory. "Naboo ... " Had she not heard him the last time? "Where are you? I'll come to you ... I have my ship with me, the others are leaving the ship, looking for some other .. .time lord or something."

Jasra heard Brax answer her and immediately relaxed, comforted by his presence even though it was only faintly felt through the Force. “So, you are still on Naboo. Good. We've sent a message to the Palace to find you. I’m on a Republic ship,” she told him. “The Dreadless. In the Austrak sector. I don’t know the exact co-ordinates, the Palace on Naboo will. But even so, I found a hyperspace link that leads directly from Naboo… “

~~~~~
Karda was observing the medical monitors near Jasra. “There,” he said to the medic, pointing to a slight change in her blood pressure and heart rate. “Begin your sampling now.”

With a slight roll of his eyes, obviously indicating a lack of understanding of Jedi, the medic complied and he drew a sample of her blood. As the analysis came over the screen, the medic raised an eyebrow. “Now, that’s interesting,” he commented.

“What?”

“A marked increase in her serotonin and adrenal….” The medic looked at another monitor, then gave Karda a strange look. “She’s not a former spice addict, is she?”

“No,” Karda answered curtly. “Why do you ask?”

The medic shrugged. “I’ve seen hormone readings go off the chart like that before in addicts. They’re off it for a while, and then, when they get a little bit, they appear to relax, but in reality their hormone levels are going haywire. It makes them crave it even more. Nasty stuff.”

“Are there other substances that could give off the same sort of readings?”

The medic thought a moment. “Well, some species give of pheromones that act in a similar manner. Falleen, for instance. Served on a ship with one on board once, and some of the human crew had bad reactions when the Falleen disembarked. Increased agitation, sleeplessness, inability to focus on their jobs….”

“So, if Jasra had been exposed to a similar pheromone, you’re saying she could be going through some sort of withdrawl?”

“It’s possible,” said the medic. “Though it’s hard to explain how she’s able to elicit the production of serotonin by just ‘meditating.’”

Karda didn’t answer him. He knew how. She was ‘communing’ with Brax, and that little bit of contact was enough to elicit a response. “And what about the pheromone producer? If they were exposed to the pheromone, but then it was suddenly withdrawn, what effect would that have on them?”

“I really couldn’t say without examining them,” said the medic. “Although, if the circumstances for producing the pheromome couldn’t be replicated, I imagine that it could have severe consequences.”

“Death?”

“Possibly. With additional hormones running through the body, and no pheromome to counter-balance them, I suppose it could eventually result in death.”

“Is it possible to simulate the pheromome so we could ‘wean’ her off of it? Offset the effects?”

“It’s possible. But, again, I would have to know the specific species in question.”

Karda paused for a moment, then frowned. “Ever hear of an Omwati?”

The medic snorted. “Can’t say that I have. But if you come across one, let me know and I’ll give it a try.”

~~~~~

“…and intersects near to where we will be,” Jasra said to Brax. “Forget about the others. They don’t matter. Just come and find me. I miss you, Brax. Terribly. Please, come and find me.”

The soldier led them into the shade of the palace, where Rose removed her bulky sweater, panting.
"There are too many hills on this planet," she muttered.
The soldier turned to her as if to speak, but was cut off by another soldier coming up to him. "Sir," he said. "There's an incoming message from the Dreadless," he said. "They're looking for the Ebon Hawk."
"The Ebon Hawk? Why would she be here?"
"I don't know, sir. The pilot also mentioned a man calling himself 'the Doctor', and asked if he had been seen - apparantly, he usually pops up when their's trouble."
Rose smirked. "He does seem to have a knack for finding it," she giggled.
Her companion smiled. "As it so happens, I know where you can find this 'Doctor' fellow."
The soldier turned to him. "Well?" he asked impatiently, after a short silence.
He reached out a hand and shook the soldier's. "Hello!" he said happily. "I'm the Doctor."

"Everything's been taken care of." Atton said, leaning against the hull of the Hawk as the Exile descended the loading ramp. "The ship's registered and the docking fee's paid. We're good to go."
"Thanks." Kira said, smiling as she took a deep breath of the clean, fresh air of Naboo.

Tylor entered the med bay (if he's still there. If he's not I'm entering the room he is in now) "Mr.Karda. We've recived a reply Naboo. They have the "Doctor" in friendly custody and are awaiting our arrival. I've allready set a corse, since that was a location for the search for the jedi. We'll be arrivng there in less than half an hour."


Make love, not toast.

"No, don't divert our course to Naboo just yet," Karda replied to Tylor. "We need to investigate Bastila's ship the Almanac and the surrounding area first. Just give the Palace Security on Naboo our co-ordinates. I'm sure the Doctor is resourceful enough to rendezvous with us if he so desires.

"Just let me know when we arrive at the Almanac. When we do, assemble a boarding party of marines. You'll be in charge of securing the ship. Her drives have been disabled by the Republic's scouts, but she's been adrift for a few days now, and may have 'uninvited' guests by now. Salvagers, pirates, who knows. While you secure the vessel, myself, Ms. Gray, and Padawan Lantill will join you onboard and look for any clues that may have been missed by the Republic the first time around."

He looked at the medic, and then at Jasra, who was beginning to come out of her meditative state.

"As soon as Padawan Lantill is through here, we'll join you on the bridge," he said to Tylor. "Understood?"

"Understood. Well we'll be at the Almanac in 15 minutes. As soon as I get this ship on corse, I'll gather a group of marines in the armoury." Marhshall then left the medbay and headed to the bridge to change the ships corse.

"I'm on my way Jasra." He said, blinking a few times ... the connection felt so weird, but it was calming. Very calming. He slipped out of the room, and down the ramp. Stopping to look where Kira, and Revan were also disembarking. "I have to go, I've found Jasra. We'll contact you once I've rendvoused with her, she's not that far from here."

He nodded and his ship decloaked, it was hovering int he air next ot the hawk. Having rode it's own hyperspace trail to naboo. He lept and landed int hte cockpit, and the ship disapeared again.

“You alright?” Karda said, looking down at Jasra as she came out of her meditative state.

“He’s coming,” she said calmly. "Brax. He's coming to me."

“And how do you feel?” Karda asked.

“Good.” Jasra grinned. “I feel… good. Perhaps meditation has its merits after all.”

Karda exchanged looks with the medic.

Jasra frowned. “What?”

“I think the reason may be more chemical in nature,” said Karda. “But we’ll find out more about that when your Omwati friend arrives.”

“What do you mean?” she asked, frowning.

“Pheromones,” said the medic. “We think you may have an addiction to one you’ve been exposed to.”

Jasra glared at Karda. “The bond is deeper than that, and you know it.”

“Perhaps,” Karda said. “Suppose we’ll find out when he gets here. In the meantime, we have work to do. We’ll be arriving at the Almanac soon, and Tylor will be sending a boarding party aboard. And we’re going with him. Crystal, too.” He turned and headed for the door. “I’ll meet you and Crystal on the bridge in ten minutes.”

Jasra sat up and stared at the closing door. Then she turned to the medic. “Pheromones?” She shook her head with disbelief, slid down off the table, and headed for Crystal’s room.

She tapped on Crystal’s door. “Crystal? We’re wanted on the bridge in ten minutes,” she called through the door.

Instead of any sort of verbal response, Jasra heard several thumps, crashes, and yells coming from Crystal's room. This went on for several seconds before Crystal came sliding along the ground through the still closed door. She slid across the hallway, stopping herself by putting her hands against the opposite wall. Getting up quickly, she walked back to Jasra.

"Well..." she said, straightening her clothing and her hair, both of which seemed to have evolved minds of their own. "That was... interesting." Shaking her head and clearing her throat, she looked at Jasra. "So I didn't catch that... where were we wanted?"

With a dubious look on her face, Jasra looked Crystal up and down. "You, me, bridge, ten minutes," she saidslowly. Her eyes flicked between the closed door and the dishevled Crystal. "Erm...what just happened here? You alright?"

Crystal's eyes flicked to the door and then she nodded. "I'm fine. Just..." She laughed softly and shook her head. "I'm definitely a different person than the one you got to know. More powerful." She laughed again. "And let's just say some of the new powers aren't as easy to control..." Sighing, she headed for her door and again passed through it. As if on a delayed reaction, the door opened behind her, allowing Jasra to enter.

The room was a mess. Half the lighting was damaged, the bed was a mess, clothes were scattered throughout the room, and the computer console Crystal had used before to look at hyperspace routes was sparking out one side and the screen was flickering.

Jasra looked around the room. "Nice," she said with a hint of sarcasm. "Love what you've done to the place. I had no idea you were into the chaos-grunge look," she added, grinning.

She jumped slightly, as a shower of sparks erupted from what used to be the computer terminal. "You know, I vote we don't tell Karda about this," she stated. "You?"

"Watch it," Crystal teased. "I can throw you against a wall harder than you could Force push me." She glanced out the window for a moment before turning back to Jasra.

"As for telling Karda..." Crystal began, stopping to look around the room. "I completely agree."

Without warning, she appeared to slip through the floor to her waist. Wincing slightly, she pushed on the floor with her arms, lifting herself out of a hole the size of her waist. Once she stood again, she turned to Jasra. "Not sure exactly what happened, but that kinda hurt..."

"I'd better watch it?" Jasra shook her head, and tried to keep a straight face. "You'd better be careful. You don't want to go sliding all the way through the hull. Although, not having to open locked doors might be handy when we get to the Almanac. Karda said we're boarding with Tylor's team. That's why he wants us on the bridge. And we'd better get going or he'll be sending someone down to fetch us."

She turned toward the door, standing in the threshold to keep it open for Crystal out of courtesy. "Oh, and Brax is coming here to meet us, by the way. Maybe he can help you control your new 'gifts'. You should talk to him when he gets here."

She and Crystal headed up to the bridge.

Karda was waiting for them, and gave Jasra and Crystal a look that said they were very nearly late.

"We're just approaching the Almanac," he said to them, pointing out the window of the bridge to a small Republic transport ship in the distance. "As soon as we dock, Tylor's team of marines will secure the vessel. There could be salvagers or pirates aboard her by now. Our job is to look for clues--personal logs, nav charts, anything that might have been missed to let us know where to start searching for Bastila."

Jasra nodded. "Understood," she said to Karda. Then she looked at Tylor. "Erm...there is another ship that will be arriving here soon. It won't be like anything you've ever seen before, but if it's been piloted by someone named Brax, it's friendly. Please instruct the crew not to fire at it, okay?"
