Re: Trip to Tatooine
Britton's careful eye made sure that he and Kelko would have an easy time making it back to the medbay.

As you crawled out of the maintenance tunnel and into the crowded cargo hold, the comlink the captain had given you crackled to life.  "I hate to bother you gentlemen," you heard the captain's voice say, "but the wounded have just arrived.  Some of them are critical, and if they don't get medical attention in the next minute, they may die."

Kelko cursed in Rodese, and then started looking around, trying to identify what out of the multitude of supplies in the cargo hold were medical supplies.
After a moment of searching, Kelko recognized some medical symbols.  "Here we go," he said.  "Bacta, bandages, sanitizer, pain killers, and all the rest.  Let's load up as much as we can."

"Sounds good," Britton said.  "I hope they petition the Empire for recompense."

Kelko gave a snort.  "I doubt it would be honored, even if the Rebellion wasn't involved.  But whenever they can the Empire seems to use the Rebellion as an excuse to get away with whatever they want."

The supplies were bulky and heavy, and carrying them through the maintenance tunnels was no easy chore.

Re: Trip to Tatooine

Even though Britton was tough, it was still difficult to carry so many supplies through a small tunnel and his progress was slow.

Kelko also had trouble, unable to move through the tunnels quickly.

OOC: You have not been able to make it back to the medbay yet.  What do you want to try now?

Britton knew he wasn't going fast enough, focusing he attempted to pick up his pace.  He hadn't honed himself all of these years to fail.  He was NOT a failure.

OOC 14+7=21 Endurance or whatever you wanna have it be fore.

Re: Trip to Tatooine

Britton's sheer willpower pushed him forward and soon he and Kelko were stumbling out of the maintenance hatch near the medbay.  Medical staff were there ready to swoop in and gather up the medical supplies.

After they had cleared out, the captain approached you, "Thank you.  You made it with a little time to spare.  Now I'd like to introduce you to our maintenance chief."  He turned and a middle-aged Human male with a pot belly and receding auburn hair approached.  "I'd shake your hand," the chief offered, "but," he indicated his arm which was in a sling.  "I'm afraid that bleeding power coupling has steadily gotten worse," the captain informed them.  "According to my estimates," the chief spoke up, "we've probably got about a minute or so before life support gives out.  And it'll take you nearly half that long just to get there--unless your faster than the average maintenance tech."

"Don't worry, leave it to us," Kelko said as the captain and the chief showed them the way to the maintenance hatch that led to the port side engine.  As soon as the hatch was opened, Kelko took off, climbing through it as quickly as he could.  But the maze of tunnels and the angles of the turns kept him from being able to go too quickly.

OOC: Your turn.  Do you want to try anything to get yourself there faster or just get there in the normal time it takes?  Either way, tell me what Britton's tries next.

Re: Trip to Tatooine
Unfortunately, the previous trip the cargo hold had worn Britton out just enough that he just couldn't push himself to hurry past normal speed.
Britton and Kelko arrived in due time to the port side engine room.  "Hurry we've got to find this leak quickly," Kelko said looking around desperately.  Before Britton even had a chance to look though, Kelko said "Wait, here I've found it."  He commed the maintenance chief.  "We've found the leaking power coupling.  What do we do now?"  The maintenance chief then walked them through a repair procedure.

Re: Trip to Tatooine

"Okay, it looks good," the maintenance chief reported from his remote viewing console. "The power levels are stabilizing and life support is up and running."

"Okay, now, if you could make your way to the deluxe state room to check on our VIP, I would greatly appreciate it," Britton heard the captain chime in.

"There should be a maintenance hatch leading there at the far end of the engine room," the maintenance chief directed.

"Let's get going," Kelko said as he led the way.  It took a little longer to get to the VIP from the engine room than it did to get to the engine room from the medbay.  When they arrived at the hallway just outside the deluxe stateroom, Kelko signaled the door chime.  "Who is it?" you could hear a scared woman's voice ask weakly.

"We're with the ship's crew," Kelko replied.  "We're here to help."

"How do I know your with ship's crew?" she retorted.

OOC: Britton's turn.

"You don't," Britton replied.  "But the captain sent us to see how you were doing nonetheless.  So, are you okay?"

Re: Trip to Tatooine
The woman seemed to hesitate before deciding there was no danger in telling her status.  "No, I'm not okay.  I have a head wound that's bleeding, and I think I broke my ankle."

OOC: I'll call your previous post flavor (no roll necessary), so it's still your turn.

"Do you want us to come in and patch you up or would you rather wait for the medical staff?"  Britton asked.  "They're a kinda swamped at the moment."

Re: Trip to Tatooine
There was little hesitation this time, as the VIP quickly, but weakly said "Okay, I'll let you in." Britton and Kelko could hear some beeping as she pushed the button on the control panel to open the door, they could also hear the whining and then straining of servos as they tried to open the door.  But the door did not open.  They heard the breathing of the VIP quicken as she tried again to open the door with the same result.  Then panic began to creep in.  "It won't open," she cried.

Kelko got back on the comlink with the captain and the maintenance chief.  "Umm, we've got a slight problem.  The door to the VIP's suite won't open, we can't get to her to administer first aid."

"Some piece of the door must have been damaged in the attack," the captain observed.

"We should be able to manually override it though," the maintenance chief chimed in.  He then walked Kelko through the process.  Kelko had some trouble at first, but eventually he was able to get the door open.  Now that the door was open, Britton could see that the VIP was an older woman, though beautifully dressed in a red gown with fancy jewelry.  She was sitting on the floor, her head had an eight centimeter gash on it, and her ankle was swollen and purple.

OOC: Britton's turn.

Re: Trip to Tatooine

Britton was able to patch up the woman and get her stabilized.

"Now we just have to get her back to the medbay safely," Kelko said.  Kelko tried to carry her, but after all they had gone through, he just couldn't do it.

OOC: It's Britton's turn.

Britton attempted to help the woman walk with himself on one side and Kelko on the other.

Re: Trip to Tatooine
Britton's constitution brought them through, getting them back to the medbay quickly and safely, without further injuring the VIP.  As soon as they burst through the far end of the maintenance tunnel, medical staff were ready to take the lady to be treated.

As Britton and Kelko caught their breath, the captain congratulated them. "Thank you so much for helping us out.  I knew you'd be able to do it, but I'm sorry I had to put you in that situation.  I've been told by my staff that the Imperials are nearly done with their inspection of the passenger list, so if you'll just sit tight here, I'm going to the cockpit to get us planetside as soon as possible." He started to turn away, but then spun back around. "Oh, and I haven't forgotten our deal.  I have refunded the price of your tickets back to your credit chips."

"Thank you," Britton said, leaning over on his knees to catch his breath.  Britton was proud of the fact he was able to prove his worth; his hard work on his body had paid off.  He know, though, he'd need to cool down or the rigors he put himself through would be more harmful than helpful.

Re: Trip to Tatooine
Britton and Kelko were able to rest well, interrupted only briefly when the Imperial Security Bureau officers from one of the Star Destroyers finally made it to the medbay.  Everyone's paperwork was in order, so the interviews did not take long.  Soon, the shuttle was docking in Bestine, the capital city of Tatooine.  As they walked down the boarding ramp, Britton and Kelko could already feel the heat pressing in, and they were still in the docking bay.  When they exited the starport, the heat was more intense, and now combined with wind to make it feel like they were in a blast furnace.

OOC: The adventure will continue in "Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan"...
