"Firstly," Bane continues, "The owners are probably dead. Second, my own ship was probably destroyed in that mess, or taken by someone else, so it's a case of what goes around comes around. And finally, we'll go to Dathomir before we go to Coruscant. No offense," he adds to Zirak.

Zirak, who seems to have taken Bane's statement as an order of events rather than a metaphor, doesn't seem to understand why Bane is apologising.

"We should call the ship 'Kau'dan's Legacy'," Bulq suggests thoughtfully, "In respect to the city."

"Because that will make the city feel heaps better," Bane replies dryly.

"The 'Stolen Property'," Bane repeats, "It has a certain ring to it. Of course it might raise a few questions from port officials when we enter systems. Personally I'm still going with 'Malar's Fist'."

"Conceited though it is, I agree with Bane," Zirak says, "I would prefer not to cringe whenever I scanned in my ship ID into a docking port system."

"Because no one would respect a ship called 'R5's Fist'," Bane replies exasperatedly, "And you don't even have a fist!"

"If that was 'R5's Claw' it would not sound good either," Zirak says.

"He actually suggested 'R5's Appendage'," Bane replies idly, "But either way; no."

"Anyway, where was I?" Sella asks Sora, deciding to resume what she considers to be a more adult conversation.

Chapter IV: An Unlikely Party
The party, such as they are, are fortunate enough not to experience any more incidents for the remainder of the journey. The following day they arrive in the Denon system. The 'Dactallion's Claw', reverts to realspace, and the planet of Denon is visible, like a tiny, sparkling pearl in the distance.

R5 approaches Bane in the cockpit as they approach the planet.

"Beepity-beep-dwoop-beep," it informs him matter-of-factly.

"Really?" Bane replies, sparing the droid a calculating glance before returning to the task of directing the ship into the traffic about the planet, "Zirak, apparently power packs have a resale value of seventeen credits per pack on Denon. R5 has counted one thousand packs, so we stand to make seventeen thousand credits from this cargo once we arrive."

Zirak looks impressed both that the traders managed to pack exactly one thousand cartons (and that R5 managed to count them that quickly.)

"Well, as you say, what goes around comes around. I assume R5 is up to forging us the necessary credentials to sell them?"

The crates appear to have been designed to fit the power packs, and R5 has spent the past twenty-four standard hours carefully removing each pack from each crate, and then repacking them once more.

“Beep-boopity-dwoop,” chuckles the droid gleefully.

Sella shoots the plotting trio a disapproving glance, but seems to have decided to pick her battles, and does not waste her energy attempting to dissuade them.
