He ignores Chatterbox's complaint.  "I need a sitrep on ship repair status of the Tracker, launch readiness of all ships, and a summary of the weather outside the compound."

OOC: While the GM might not be ready with all the new deck plans and stats yet because he's a slacker, the ships themselves are good to go.

"Not sure about all the other stuff," Harry said over the comm as he stepped on to the bridge, "but the weather sure is cloudy. No storms at the moment, but I'm sure one could come in at any time."

Re: 5: Flying Under the Radar
OOC- Alright, got the GM's permission here to FFW post, so I'm going to break it down heist montage-style!

"Alright, here's what's happening, everybody listen carefully.

"Pack up, and start getting all ships prepped for launch.  Q7, load in an astrogation point for rendezvous in each computer, nothing fancy, 1-2 hours out.  Send me coordinates on this secure channel when you have them.

"A'den, Haskel, and a new friend will be en route back to the hangar shortly.  As soon as you are boarded and ready, all three ships will launch simultaneously, and speed off in different directions.  I'm not sure what kind of surveillance Kol is running, or what kind of response they'll be able to muster, so don't be afraid to punch it--you'll be on your own until we rendezvous.

"Whatever you do, don't engage.  Just fly, shields at full.  Things may get... slightly
chaotic, but that's all according to plan.

"A'den will be in the Gamma, Haskel will be in the 720.  Q7 and Metzz will handle the
Tracker.  I will join you at the rendezvous point in a few hours.

"We clear?

"Someone go get Doc, I need to talk to him."

Jumping up with something to do, Bulyip offers, "Me go get Doc!"


He runs off to go find Doc, and assumes he will be pretty close if he's always around to stop them from wandering off too far.

He'll be prompt in letting Doc know that he needs to come quick, and that it's important to come into the ship.

"Roice, could I have Metzz join me on the 720 to pilot it?"

He shrugs.  "If Q7 is comfortable on the Tracker by himself.  Figure it out when you get there.  Remember, nothing fancy needs to happen, just make a break for it and get into hyperspace as soon as possible."

To Roice's surprise, a squawky, synthesized voice replies, "I got this, Boss.  You can leave the flying to me, no problem."

Bulyip returns quickly with Doc in tow.  The mechanic is wiping grease off his hands and grimacing.  "What now?" he asks in exasperation.

"Is that Delfinn?" Doc asks.  "Hey, what's your ETA, son?  Your ships are ready to go and I think you're going to want to get them anywhere but here as soon as possible."

"That's the plan, sir.  They'll be gone within the hour.  If you're amicable, I will follow up today after things cool down in the neighborhood to square us up."

"I think that's a good idea," Doc replies, nodding.  "In fact, why don't I meet you in town.  Like Harry said, weather's a bit... inclement around here right now." The old mechanic pauses to give Selous, Metzz, and Bulyip a sour look.

"You landed yet?  If so, I'll get cleaned up and head in.  I have some shopping to do anyway."

"Confirmed, docking bay S-22.  See you there.  A'den and Haskel are on their way in now.  Don't be surprised by the purple guy.  Flight out."

Re: 5: Flying Under the Radar
"My orders from Splynn are to stay with the Tracker.  This ship is far too valuable to lose.  Besides I've spent the last 2 weeks re-wiring the mess that Strickland left behind him - did you know he'd put all kinds of secret sub-routines into ChatterBox, back doors and lock outs and only the stars know what else.  After all this work I'm not letting her out of my sight again!"

The droid brain gasps in pure, affronted indignation.  "He did no such thing!  I'll have you know that my programming is as sound as ever!  No way anyone hacked me!  I would've detected any intrusion and...  Wait...  Processing.  Processing.  HEY!"

Chatterbox starts ranting about slicers and no respect for the sentient and on in that vein for quite some time in a strident and highly irate tone.

Re: 5: Flying Under the Radar
Haskel and A'den soon arrive at Doc's shipyard in a rented speeder.  They're intercepted at the gate by a police cruiser, which moves to bar entrance to the business.

An officer steps out of the speeder and approaches the rental.  He peers into the vehicle, glaring suspiciously at the ex-Imperial and the Mandalorian.  "What's your business here, offworlders?" he asks.

"Who wants to know and for what reasons?" he responded; neither friendly nor unfriendly.

Garret meets the glare of the suspicious officer; allowing a look of very slight annoyance to show.

Re: 5: Flying Under the Radar
"We're on the lookout for several armed and very dangerous beings," the officer replies.  "They've been at large for almost two weeks now after several vicious attacks on the downtown area."

He slowly, but pointedly, raises his blaster and there's the unmistakable sound of two more blasters being readied from the speeder behind as more cops step out of the vehicle.

"I'm going to have to ask you both to submit to a search of your vehicle as well as giving us a good reason why you're here.  Otherwise, you will be stunned, detained, and taken in for questioning."

"Hey, you not tell Roice what me tell you to." He directs to Metzz.

Looking to climb up, he's going to try and hit the speak button on the comm system himself since Metzz didn't do it for him.

"Let's all calm down here and be friendly like. We will submit to the search, officer, it's not a problem. We are just coming to talk to the proprietor about a ship. We havent been in the area for awhile, and I am betting we dont fit the descriptions of your fugitives." A'den smiles in a friendly manner and tries to exude a calm, helpful demeanor.

Re: 5: Flying Under the Radar
The cop motions for you both to step out of the speeder.  "Reports on the fugitives are sketchy.  All we know is that they weren't Ocsinnin, so we have orders to detain and search all offworlders, especially those in this area.  Thank you for your cooperation, gentlemen, I'm sure you understand the necessity."

Metxx stopped Bulyip from interferring with the Comms with a glare.
"Loose lips sink ship Bulyip!  Don't forget the police are still after us.  You never know who's listening, even on a secure channel."

"There is no need for pointing blasters at us."

Garret said as he stepped out of the rented speeder.
