    Using its internal comlink Z1X says "Beware to all the staff, it is very likely that we do not have permission to pick up these boxes and must leave immediately."

    "Attention all crew, there is a distinct possibility that we do not have permission to take these crates and will have to leave in a hurry."


    If Z1X is able to get all of the crates are on-board the ship it will begin preparing the ship for takeoff.

    They seem to be asking around a bit roughly, and you hear one of them mentioning shutdown of the spaceport.

    Miri Trace

    Miri arrived, looking slightly breathless. After collecting her winning she'd had to file a flight plan for the Sable Merlin. Fortunately she'd already finished and had been able to check her comlink discretely.

    'Any idea who we have after us?' She asked making her way past the cargo hold towards the cockpit just in case they needed to make a really rapid get away.

    "No idea, but their insignia matches the crates and they were talking about closing the spaceport." Secles replies, manhandling a crate into the smuggling compartment.

    Sensing a possible opportunity to assist, Opal stays in the cockpit or even in her gunnery--wherever she can get a position to look outside in the spaceport at the 'inspectors."

    If necessary she knows of a few 'tricks' that may be necessary to slow someone down...

    Spoiler: OOC/rolls
    Show


    (1d20+8)[24]

    Rolling perception to check and see if there are any barrels, conduit wires or anything that can cause a messy distraction between us/the Merlin and these guys.

    If there ARE, and Opal's force powers are within range, she may use them to fall over or trip them up. but she's not looking for live power cables or the acid delivery tubes or anything lethal...

    They succeeded on Use Force checks fo sense nearby Force Users. Roll Use Force(Cha), to see if you can trip them before they get to your ship. You could also alert a crew member that you need to lift off immediately.

    You move to begin lifting off. Flicking on and off numerous switches, you find that parts of the controls are jammed. You can still lift off though, but won’t be able to move very fast. No time to fix it now.

    I assume you’re rolling to Increase Speed, which would fail, but you’ve successfully piloted.

    The exact thing you’re doing isn’t really well detailed in the books, so the roll just activated Increased Speed as the Pilot application.

    Here is an Astrogation roll to make the check in one round. Book says that it is a DC 10 check unless the GM says otherwise.
    (1d20+10)[30]
    Z1X has a +15 to use computers, +5 because the ship has a nav comp, -10 for doing it quickly.

    Edit: Well nat 20, I guess we are on our way.

    You have arrived at the first step on your journey. While it may tedious, your destination is nearly on the exact opposite location in the galaxy, so you will have to make a few more stops.

    Opening the door, you expect the fabled Spice mines of Imperial Outpost 37. You will have to be careful.

    Instead, you find a group of white-armored soldiers milling around outside. To your surprise, one of the natives, a dark skinned tentacled blob, smiles at you warmly, and cries, "Welcome to Deriru!"

    'Be careful everyone,' Miri had warned before they disembarked. 'We got lucky last time and I want to keep that pesky Imperial attention as far away as possible.'

    As she walks down the Sable Merlin's boarding ramp Miri blinks in surprise at the greeting then waves back at the local. 'Thank you, nice planet you have here!''

    "Isn't it?" The native replies. "Those guys over there just liberated us from the Imperials a week ago!" The native points towards the armored men. "The Empire said that they would send another fleet here today, but they were obviously bluffing."
