"I do not know where it is, exactly," Sora admits, ignoring Zirak's comment, "Try to find a settlement and we can make our way from there."

"True. Sora, why don't you try checking the holonet?" says Bane, "There must be something there about it's location."

"You read that you had an estate, but you did not bother to locate the coordinates? I begin to see why your Crusaders have yet to rule the galaxy."

Sora ignores Zirak's comment, beginning to type at the computer.

"I have the coordinates," he says after a minute.

Bane directs the ship towards the coordinates. The moon looms larger and larger before them, and they are soon entering its atmosphere. They pass through a layer of cloud and mist, and are able to make out lush tropical jungle sprawling beneath them. They travel for nearly quarter of a standard hour before a sprawling fortress comes into view, nestled along the side of a dark, rugged mountain.

"We're being hailed," Bane says flicking a flashing switch on the control board. A hoarse voice comes across the comm, speaking a language Zirak does not understand. Bane turns to Sora expectantly. "I assume you understand that gibberish?"

"You're sure he wasn't just coughing?" Zirak says doubtfully.

Sora seems to have learnt to ignore Zirak's slights. He also seems to understand, and, leaning over Bane's shoulder, he begins to converse in Sriluurian.

The conversation is brief, and after half a minute the comm cuts off.

"Well," repeats Sora, "Apparently my uncle has been running the estate for the past week, ever since my rumored death. They seem happy to know I am alive, and have given us one of the guest platforms, Platform Seven."

Bane touches the ship down. Outside the viewport they can see a weequay in robes of burgundy and silver. About him stand four muscular weequay in ceremonial armor.

"So, who is going in?"

"I shall remain here," Bane says, "Someone needs to be waiting with the ship in case we need a quick getaway. Besides, I donít speak Weequay."

"I'll come," Zirak says, "If I were uncle, I would have called bounty hunters first and my private army second. And after all, someone needs to protect our naive credit fund."

With that he follows the others down the boarding ramp and into the open air beyond.
