    *beebeep. beebeep. click. hum. beebeebeep.*

    The door groans open, but sticks about halfway to the side. As you enter, you see that nothing is where you left it. the bed is upside down on the other side of the room. Trinkets and musty, mildewed clothes are scattered everywhere. All the furniture has been torn open, their innards rotten on the floor.

    The pictures painted on the wall depicting heroes from the first Rebellion have been defiled. Great smears of paint block out faces, and some crude drawings have been made in lewd positions behind the women.

    In short, the room is a mess.

    In the short time since meeting both Robb and Grace, Kaz had found that she had a deep respect for them both. This respect is waht kept her from going into Grace's room. She did, however peek in through the half open door. 'Sith spit!" She curses. "Those savages know no honor." Kaz says a little louder than she had planned, then added, "Do you...do you think they found what they were looking for?"

    Wow...

    Yeah. I thought the Sith trained people who knew what they were doing.

    Killing your specialists every time they fail you makes experience gain somewhat difficult for them.

    Heh. Point.

    Idiots.


    Grace smiled at Kaz's remarks, warmed by the girl's remarks.

    "Eh, this is nothing. Amateur work at best, probably more concerned with drawing lewd pictures than anything else, the morons." She chuckled. "As my sister used to say; if lasers were brains, they couldn't melt a block of hydrogen." She moved across the room, retrieving the few things that had remained intact. A few holos, a datapad with a dramatised version of the Rebel Alliance's rise from obscurity to its defeat of Palpatine at Endor. And, somehow, one or two pieces of old, hand-made jewelry that she had never thought to see again and were still intact.

    I guess Naomi wasn't kidding when she said it would last for a thousand years...

    Figures. Trust her to work out a way to 'paint' transparisteel onto jewelry in the middle of a war.

    Hey, you can't say those sprayers weren't effective at Fourth Fondor.

    Shut up you.


    Placing the small collection of knick-knacks on the desk - only intact and still where it is due to being made of durasteel and built into both the floor and the wall - she taps a short sequence on the wall above it. She waits a moment, hand rested on the wall, and then smirks as a tell-tale vibration shivers up her arm.

    "They didn't find what they were looking for. Now...let's see if Master Sheant left what I think she did." Grace lays the glow rod on the desk, fixing her gaze on a particular spot in the wall. She draws her vibrosword, thumbs it on and brings the gently humming blade back. "I am justice. I am the shield. My sword sheds only the blood of those who would seek to break me." She snaps the weapon forward, bringing its humming tip to a stop right at the focus of her gaze.

    There is a pause, almost infintesimal, and then a soft computerised voice speaks.

    "Voiceprint accepted."

    A thick section of the wall slides away, revealing a well hidden volume of space behind it. Grace retrieves her glow rod, and peers in.

    They'll be a few bits and pieces of memorabilia, possibly a few power packs and a spare blaster and - if you'll allow it - a datapad with the real history of the galaxy on it. Grace was a warrior, yes, but she believed in holding on to the past.

    Here is also one more thing in the space. It is a small cylinder just barely able to fit in your hand. It is warm to the touch, and seems to hum, despite having no visible power source.

    Kaz watches from outside the room, as Grace moves across the room. She sees her pick up various things, wondering what each item is. She listens intently as Grace speaks, then jumps slighlty when a section of the wall opens up.

    Seeing the mess the Sith left of this place adds to the fuel of hate he is building for them. You've stayed clear of them for this long, minding your own business, but maybe you should have joined the fight against them, instead of worrying only about yourself.

    Shaking his head to clear his thoughts, Robb follows into the room.

    Despicable, he mutters under his breath.

    He watches Grace intently, wondering what her next move is when she unsheathes her vibrosword. As she speaks some words, she receives a response and a wall section opens. Letting out his breath, Robb realizes that he drew his blaster, and quickly holsters it.

    Wondering if anyone saw his movement, he casually says, "Instincts."

    Walking towards Grace, "What exactly is all this?"

    Grace flicks her vibrosword off, sheathing it, and then withdraws the items within the safe, placing most on the desk - although the datapad is tucked away carefully before she reaches in again for the small cylinder at the bottom of the small vault's contents.

    She holds up it, examining it carefully as she answers Robb.

    "This...was my home once. And what I have there," She guestures at the small pile on the desk, "is all that remains of a world long dead, suppressed, and forgotten."

    Kaz barely hears the conversation betweeen Robb and Grace as she enters the room, looking at the defiled painting trying to figure out who the people were. She was about to ask Grace about it when she heard a faint humming noise. "What's humming?"

    The seal on the cylinder is still intact. It does seem to weigh a lot more than it should, considering what you know to be inside.

    "This." Grace replies to Kaz. "Now let's see..." She pulls another tool from her belt, fiddles with the seal for a moment - then pulls.

    After a minute of working the seal, it loosens. There is a small hiss of air, and the cylinder opens.

    Suddenly, a small spherical shaped objects flies out of the cylinder and lowers to the ground. As it does so, the air above it shimmers and opalesces, finally resolving into a woman's body. Grace recognizes it as Master Shae Skywalker.

    Master Skywalker looks around, and then settles her gaze upon Kaz. Her face settles into a smile as she speaks.

    "Greetings, Young One. The fact that you are hearing this means that the Force has returned at last to the Galaxy. You have the potential to be the first Jedi in a thousand years."

    As was said.

    As it will be.

    Yeah....


    Grace nods respectfully to the hologram of Shae, then scoops up the small pieces of memorabilia she managed to retrieve and...almost flees the room.

    You kno-

    Not the time for family reunions!

    Bu-

    Shut up! Shut up! SHUT UP!


    A single tear cracks the facade before she manages to escape the room that is now far too full of memories, the echo of a strangled sob marking her departure.

    Kaz isn't sure what to make of everything that had just happened, but it seems to her that Grace does. Before she can say anything, Kaz watches Grace run from the room. "Grace wait!", Kaz yells and runs after her.

    What in all the galaxy is wrong with these girls?, Robb wonders.

    Following them both back to the ship, Robb catches up with Kaz, and says, "Hold it there a minute."

    "Did that holo-recording just say that you are a jedi? These are the kind of things you should really tell a person up front you know. And can we please all sit down and let me know what is going on here, without anymore running, sobbing or anger?"

    Unfortunately, with the thoughts of sorrow and loss in her head, Grace took a wrong turn, and ended up in a different hangar. This one is filled with speeders in various states of disrepair, and cables are stretched between most of them, leaving a tangled maze that would be hard even for a droid to make out.

    "It sounded that way, but I can't be a jedi. If I were, the Sith would have killed me before now. This is all just so confusing. We need to find Grace so we can figure all of this out. Now c'mon." Kaz says very rapidly.

    Grace, Robb, and Kaz:

    Th docking bay is the first place you have been in this dead place that you have heard the familiar hum of a fusion generator. The noise was so familiar it didn't register at first, but now it tickles at the back of your minds.

    Luum:

    A young Human woman burst into the room, sobbing. She was followed by two more beings, a male Human, and a female Twi'lek who appear to be arguing with each other.

    Aside from Grace, neither Robb nor Kaz know what a Jedi is. The Sith have managed to erase nearly every mention of the Old Order from the Galaxy a thousand years ago when they came to power.

    Luum's shutter makes a series of quick paced adjustments. What Luck, of all the times someone could of invaded his make shift home it had to be when he was recharging. The small pit droid uncouples himself from the humming reactor and slowly tries to sneak away.

    The sounds of scrap metal deforming grate at him. His trash filled room and heavy metal body had betrayed him. Surely he was discovered. Luum makes the standard pit droid screech and starts running hands up towards his bed. He dives into his trash filled speeder and buries himself under it all.

    As Robb tries to have a conversation with Kaz, she once again runs off.

    "Hey!", he shouts. "Weren't we going to go see Grace and find out what's going on?" But clearly she had other things on her mind.

    This girl is reckless and probably going to get you killed, and yet you still won't walk away. But where would I go, and how would I get there, since I still seem to be missing my ship.

    As his eyes follow Kaz running off talking about a fusion reactor, he sees her suddenly stop and appear to be listening for something. Taking a breath he thinks he hears something odd as well, like metal on metal.

    The noise wasn't hard to follow at all. It leads you to a broken down speeder in a corner of the bay.

    You notice more cables than before spreading out from the car, snaking up walls, down through the floor, and out across the bay, like the strands of a spider's web.

    Luum nestles farther into the trash. His robotic hand noisy searches the bottom of speeder's floor for his only defense, but it turns up nothing. His mind races as he tries to recall it's location and then it dawns on him its near the reactor.

    Following where he thought he heard the noise, Robb comes to a literal pile of junk. The speeder looked far from repair, but with the right parts and some time, anything can be made to work again, he thought.

    Still believing that he is hearing something mechanical in nature from the speeder, he goes in for a closer look.

    Kaz follows Robb to the speeder, she too hears something. She's been on edge ever since the holo-recoder incident. She stands straight and levels her blaster to the center of the trash filled speeder. "Give me one good reason I shouldn't send a rain of blaster bolts into there!"

    At the mention of blaster bolts the shuffling stops and a seconds later a pit droid head pops out of the trash as if it were a periscope. It gives some chirps and whistles at your threat and then climbs out of the trash. Hands up as if surrendering it continues to give panicked chirps and whistles at an ever increasing rate.

    Kaz quickly holsters her blaster and squats down, a smile spreading across her face. "It's a pit droid!", she exclaims. "Come here little guy. I won't hurt you. What were you doing in here all by yourself?" That's when it hits her, This thing is so ancient, I wonder..... Kaz's thought process trails off as she stands back up. She turns to Robb and says, "I wonder if it belonged to someone in Grace's family?" She then yells, "Grace I think I found something!"

    The pit droid lowers his scraggly arms and inches itself closer towards the welcoming twi'lek. Its slow edging reminiscent to that of a scared child. It's excess droid speak calms as it replies towards your statements.

    And as you question it and Robb, it answers with beebs and bloops.

    Tears streamed down her face, tracing down her cheeks to fall from her chin to the hanger floor in quiet, disciplined, and infinitely bitter sobs. Her hands clutched what little she had been able to rescue from her quarters, the few things that she had tried to force herself to believe would be enough.

    You always were good at lying to yourself. Not that it ever helped in the end.

    Oh great, the

    Hey! Pay attention!


    Her tear-stained face looked around as Kaz called her, as if the Twi'lek had found something. Wait...that sound. That was a fusion reactor. But - it didn't make sense. Maybe they would know - and that was the reason for the shout.

    She pulled herself to her feet, gently pocketing each of her so infinitely precious trinkets, and then wiped her eyes and headed towards the origin of the shout.
