Chapter 1C: The Droid Defector

After Order 66, few Jedi dare to venture outside the shadows—rumors of the dark and terrible Darth Vader haunting even their waking moments. Yet, some Jedi find this life of fear unbearable. The Empire is always watching, and Vader himself is eager to confront any Jedi that might bring him closer to the whereabouts of his betrayer, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

"You can charge it to the Jedi Order," Janos mutters, pulling out his lightsaber. "Now hold still with your arms out, I don't want to cut your hands off," he adds.Thumbing the switch, Janos waits (impatiently) for the weequay to hold out his hands and delicately cuts off the binders. "Action now; talk later. We need to get off this station."

The weequay nods his thanks and says, "I am the famous Pirate King Hondo Ohnaka of the Ohnaka Clan. I would say it was a pleasure to meet you, but this is a business transaction. The droid is there, I assume you have the payment?"

Meanwhile, Janos' Jedi beacon transceiver's light continues to flashes red.

As Janos attempts to get the "Pirate King" to move, he looks past the weequay to see the hanger dock workers going through the crate of ion grenades. The group pockets several and then runs out of the hanger area towards the center station.

Janos nods, "I do. The encryption key and coordinates of one million credits in spice. Better get moving if you want to be alive to spend it," he adds, glancing at his transceiver. What in the Force... He had a bad feeling about this.

While Hondo moves over to collect the medical droid, Janos glances down at his transceiver. When the Jedi looks up, he sees a dozen or more humanoid running into the hanger. Some of these humanoids are carrying crowbars. Their actions seem to indicate they are acting as a group rather than individuals.

"Over here, droid." Hondo states. As the weequay turns around, he exclaims, "They are stealing my cargo! Thieves! How dare they steal from me."

A few meters away the T-Series Tactical Droid commands, "Initiate Station Lockdown Protocol Level 1." At his command, the reinforced hanger doors begin to close sealing all of the ships and personnel within the station.

Weaponless, Hondo collects one of the heavy blaster rifles near the B1 Battle Droids. "Not my style, but it will do." The weequay fires a blast at the Tactical Droid hitting it, but not taking it down.

The medical droid hovers over to Janos and says, "Greetings, I am AZI-345211896246498721347. Are you General Kenobi? You do not look like a General Kenobi. I must speak with General Kenobi or General Skywalker immediately. Please escort me to the Jedi Temple."

"Initiate Station Lockdown Protocol Level 2--" The Tactical Droid states before Hondo's second shot takes the droid offline.

"I'm taking you to the Jedi Temple. Get on the ship," Janos urges the droid. Trying to herd both droid and pirate, and hoping there weren't more enemies on the ship.
I guess we enter the ship? Quickly! Intention is to board and fly out the hanger ASAP.

Seeing the hanger doors closing, the trio rush aboard the shuttle. As Janos presses the button to close the ramp, he hears explosions from the station's center. In addition to the hanger bay doors closing, the hanger and other compartment doors are also closing to lockdown the entire station.

As they rush to the cockpit, two battle pilot droids say, "That was quick. We're ready to depart, but the hanger bays are shutting."

Turning their heads, the droids find the expected cargo of the weequay and medical droid, but lacking the contingents of battle droids to secure them. "Hey, you're not suppose to be here."

"I've got my boarding pass right here," Janos quips, drawing his lightsaber. With the tell-tale snap-hiss of the blade coming to life, the cockpit is illuminated in cool blue light as Janos attempts to delicately behead the droids.

The heads of the droids roll off their torsos as does the two unused headrests behind their heads. Janos then grabs the droids' shoulders and pulls them behind the seats and into the main compartment.

"Well, there is the laser-sword. I was beginning to wonder if you were a Jedi or not." Hondo quips as he smiles at Janos.

"The weapon does not make the Jedi; the Jedi makes the weapon," Janos replies, something his master had taught him. "Now, let's get out of here. I need to get back to the Jedi Temple. Once we're safely away from the station, we can dock with my ride. You'll get your coordinates and code, and I'll get the information that is in that droid." Janos dumps the remains of the battle droids out of the seats and slides into the copilot's chair. I'm a fair pilot, but I'm guessing you're better," he says, gesturing to the pilot's chair.

Hondo

Difficulty: 4 purple

Result: 3 success 1 threat
Threat: ship suffers 1 strain
Hondo off handly states, "It appears that now I'm rescuing you. This will cost you extra." The weequay pirate takes a seat and begins turning on the engine and raising the landing gear. Once the slow rotation to orient the ship towards the hanger doors finishes, the pirate pushes the throttle forward and the ship darts out of the hanger bay, but not without complications. As the ship flies out of the hanger, the closing doors scraps across the top of the ship causing light damage.
