Vyctor shrugs.  "Sorry.  Doesn't sound any tones.  Chalk it up to the stress and the environment.  Looks like things got a little heated down there."

He looks over at the medical tank where Ronan floats.  "The medical droids seem to have him in hand.  We should see about the AI for the planet.  Find out what we have access to."

"Fair 'nuff, for now at least. That one area we first came in to, is it back on line yet? I wanna check out those menus again, and keep an eye on thangs as well, since I ain't much for muckin' around with AIs and computers and such".

"Speaking of which", he looks over to Irin and Inarra, "we should start digging through the system. It ought to be stable enough now, plus we should check on Aice, make sure he ready to go as well."

"Yes, I believe so.  Everything came alive a while back.  I ordered a snack and have been perusing the menus.  There are two serviced starfighters available to us, an Incom XJ-7 X-Wing and a BTL-S8 K-Wing.  The K-Wing is missing a few parts, which I've ordered, so we may need to come back for that.  I'd like to take the X-Wing if there are no objections."

"I'm fine, Tump.  Thanks for asking."  Ayce trundles up, his dome tome rotating around to take in all who made it back.  "Better than Ronan it seems.  The AI's matrix has stabilized now that the power has been restored.  The core was kept separate after the breach.  Once you reconnected the power, the breach was fixed and the core overwrote the corrupted version up here."

"That is correct, R10-AC.  Thank you for restoring my functions.  How may I be of service, ladies and gentlemen?"  The voice comes from the speakers around the room and is a pleasant, human male voice.  It's tone is calm and willing to serve...or sell.

Django responds "Fine by me" to Vyc. "I'm gonna go see about getting this new droid in fightin' condition" and heads off in search of a terminal to browse around on.

While Django goes off to upgrade his new droid, Vyctor and the others settle down at their own menu stations with refreshments supplied and little conversation.

Tump plops down in a chair and begins looking through the catalogs and menus. "So, anything interesting happen up here while we were trying to keep the planet from melting down?"

"Nothing of note.  The power's been off. "  Vyctor smiles.  "We need to download what data we need, supply up, and move on.  Eventually, someone is going to realize Mechis III is back online and come snooping. "

Most everything in the catalog will take months to manufacture.  Then again, a lot of it is big-ticket items.  The really big question is how to pay for any of it.  The computer lists prices in something called 'Galactic Alliance Credits', but that's not a currency Core used or ever heard of.  Corellia, maybe, a long time ago...

...but not Core.  Also, it looks like some kind of digital currency anyway.

Speaking to the AI onscreen, Django questions it. "I have a droid I want reconfigured. Bi-pedal, like a human. Not all frail and skeletal, but not bulky. Is that doable? An' I notice it says here "Galactic Credits". Only source a' cash I got on hand is my credits from Core. Doubt those are one in the same, so if there's any kind'a exchange rate, I need t' know that too". Django sits back in his seat and waits for a response.

"Irin is a wizard when it comes to data mining, let's just fill her in on what to look for." He turns his attention back to the catalog and orders up some light snacks. "Now that we're back online here, how much time do you reckon we have before someone takes notice?"

"Core Territory credits are issued from Coruscant.  They are the same as Galactic Alliance Credits.  Please insert your data chip in the correct slot located just below the interface."  There is a small data connection port {think USB} below the manual interface {keyboard}.

"Mechis 3, please update your database.  The former planet known as Corellia is now referred to by the locals as Core.  Django is asking about a local physical currency based on that new information, not the Galactic Core worlds. "

He turns to Tump and Irin. "I have no doubt that if the Star Demons attacked here before, they have left some sort of sentinel here to notify of any changes.  We maybe have days?  Hopefully more?  Irin, do a data mine for the name Guri. "

"Fiat.  Digital.  There is some secondary commodity units, but they are not in wide use for the majority of the population."

"I'm sorry, Captain Blint, but we do not currently have trade with the Core system, formerly known as Corellia.  With no trade, an exchange rate is not possible unless you have commodity cash, in which case value is assessed based on current known value of the commodity only, not the face value of the money."

"I may have found something, but it doesn't make sense.  There are a number of Guri's listed in the database.  I eliminated all those marked as deceased.  I then filtered for known associates and found Han Solo, the last owner of the Millennium Falcon before Vyctor."  She pulls up a picture on the screen, then sends it to everyone else's computer screen.  "As you can see, it's the same woman from the video Tump had.  However, this Guri is not an organic lifeform.  She is a droid."

Django leans back in his seat. "A' course it's like that then. Can I at least get them bi-pedal retrofits then? I'm trading one droid body for another. Even trade if you ask me". Django completely ignores the imagery brought up by Irin, until it registers what she's talking about. "Hold up a minute. So this Guri is showing up as multiple lifeforms.. er, lack-there-ofs in this case?".

"We can retrofit the chassis to bipedal with the noted free upgrades as part of our thanks for stabilizing the core.  The process should take no longer than 12 hours with these particular modifications.  Shall I begin the process?"

Irin shakes her head.  "No.  The name is pretty rare, but not unheard of throughout the galaxy.  It was used by a number of individuals who were alive, about thirty percent of them human.  The one that fits the description and what we know about the Guri in the video, the one connected to Han Solo, is a very advanced droid called an HRD, which stands for Human Replica Droid.  She was built to mimic human behavior and serve as a bodyguard for some underworld prince."  Irin whistles low.  "Nine million credits.  Anyway, the pictures here look like the woman in the video Tump had.  She's not human, though.  She's a droid."

Tump hurries over to Irin's terminal. "Yep, that's her alright." He raises an eyebrow. "Droid huh? They should did a fine job on that one. Can't even tell."

He walks back over to his chair and sits back down. "Those files give a name to that underworld prince she was protecting?"

Irin scrolls a bit.  "Kaizor...Scissor.  How do you pronounce this?"

The word Xizor appears in the text.
