This is my first fic, so please try not to be too cruel.
It's about how I imagine Revans rise to power and eventual "death" and the hands of his apprectice was like.
“Are you sure this is worth it Master?” asked Malak nervously, “If we should take control of the Star Forge now, if we destroy the Republic, we will lose everything we once held dear to us”
“It will be worth it Malak, with the power of the Star Forge at my command, the Sith Empire will be unstoppable. We will not mindlessly slaughter civilians and destory planets and random however, that is the job of Mandalorians. We shall hit only key strategic points in the Republic. We will cripple them, but not destroy them completely. We will need to maintain the economy to ensure a prosperous future.”
“Very well Master, I trust your judgement.” Malak said back.
Then, there was a bleeping from one of the consoles, Malak looked down and looked at the monitor.
“We’re there Master. We’ve reached the Star Forge system.”
“Ah excellent.” Revan replied excitedly. “Soon we shall have the Star Forge at our command.”
Then, there were footsteps behind them. A Sith officer was walking across the flight deck towards them.
“What is it Admiral Karath?” asked Revan.
“We’ve arrived Lord Revan, we are ready to exit hyperspace at your command.”
“Proceed.” Repled Revan. “Do not fly too near the Star Forge however, it may have defences in place to stop ships reaching it. Darth Malak and I will make our way to the Station in one of the small shuttles. They make for a smaller faster target, therefore we will be far more difficult to hit.”
“As you wish, my Lord Revan” said Saul with a bow.
Then he turned and walked over to one of the consoles lining the wall.
He fiddled with the controls for a moment, then stepped back. The Leviathan exited hyperspace around 5 seconds later.
“There it is, Master.” Malak said. “Finally we have reached our goal.”
Revan turned to look out of the window, what he saw was a magnificent site.
A gigantic space station, bigger than anything else he had ever seen, perched above an enormous star. He reached out with the Force, feeling the stations presence immediately. Its dark side aurora was unbelieveable.
He waited a few moments before turning away from the beauty of the Star Forge.
Then he spoke to his apprentice, who was also staring at the amazing sight.
“Indeed we have my apprentice.” Then he turned to Admiral Karath.
“Admiral, you are in command while Malak and I are onboard the station disabling its defences.”
“Thank you, my Lord. I assure you the ship is in safe hands.”
Revan and Malak then walked across the flight deck to the door, they went through and made their way to the elevator.
Once inside, Revan removed his mask, he looked directly at Malak.
“Malak.” He said “What we are about to do is a milestone in the history of our empire. You will need all your wits about you, and you will need all of your training. Be alert at all times.”
“I will master.”
“Good” replied Revan, donning his mask once more.
The elevator came to a hault and the two men made their way across the hangar bay to where a shuttle was waiting for them.
They entered the small craft, Revan taking the pilots seat and Malak, the navigators.
“Well, my apprentice, this is it!” Revan said in an excited voice.
He fired up the ships engines with a few keystrokes, then he took the joystick in his hand. He pressed a switch to seal the shuttles loading ramp and another to pressurise the vessel.
Then he pulled a on the control panel and hit a button on the ceiling above his head.
The small ship rose from the hangar floor and slowly made its way towards the exit.
Revan manouvered the ship outside the Leviathans docking bay then punched up the engine power.
The craft flew at an astonishing speed towards the station. Malak looked admiringly at his Master.
“I never knew you were such a fine pilot Master! During the war I only ever saw you pilot cruisers. Maybe you should have been a fighter pilot!”
“And how then would I have directed a fleet?”
Malak turned and looked out of the cockpit window towards the planet below.
It looked wonderful, the ocean was crystal clear, even from space Malak could see the mountains and oceans and rivers. But of course, he wasn’t interested in any of that.
He was feeling for the planets dark aurora in the Force.
He could feel a great deal of life down there. A great dark power.
Perhaps this would be the first race they conquer?
Malaks thinking was disturbed, as the craft gave a violent shudder.
Malak looked down and the controls and saw that all the warning lights were flashing.
The engines were failing.
“Master what’s happening?”
“It’s some sort of disruptor field.” Revan replied calmly. “Do not fear, I sense that we will be able to disable it from the planets surface.”
“Will we even reach the surface? The ships systems are failing!”
“I see you still have much to learn Malak,” Revan said. “I shall guide the ship down with the Force.”
Malak was embarassed that he had thought his Master incapeable of landing safely.
“Sorry, Master. I should have thought of that.”
But Revan wasn’t listening, he was focussed on the ship. Grasping every atom of the ships hull, reaching inside and taking control of the whole ship, holding it through the Force.
He willed the shuttle to safely land on the planet, he felt in the force for the planets strongest source of dark energy, sensing it was the key to disabling the disruptor.
The ship landed on a beach. Near a damaged Republic hammerhead cruiser.
Revan and Malak cautiously left the ship, looking around in wonder.
The sand was white, clean with no trace of dirt. The sea was a clear, crystal blue, they could see and sense much life on this world.
“Come, Malak” Revan told his apprentice. Revan jumped, propelling himself with the Force, up onto a small cliff.
Malak followed his Master.
They saw a path in front of them. It wasn’t natural, it was too perfect.
“We are not alone.” Said Revan. “There are others here on this world with us.
Then there was a sound of heavy footfalls, someone was running towards them.
An alien being ran around the corner in front of them, it stopped when it noticed the two intruders. It was strange, it had large eyes protruding from its head, which was elongated.
It had brown-green skin and long, but strong looking legs. They were all clad in rough garments of fabric in shades of brown-green. They were obviously hostile to the two Sith.
Five more of the strange alien beings followed. They were armed with Vibroblades and swords of varying types, no doubt salvaged from the wrecks of ships the two Sith could now see, dotted around the area.
All the creatures raised their weapons at once.
Revan took his lightsaber from his belt and ignited it. Its blood red blade spilling out from the hilt.
Malak did the same.
“Right.” Said Revan to the strangers. “Lets see how you fare in combat with two Sith!
