The ship slowly falls down to the barren planet. With the last known location of the Knight, Sypher watches and tilts his head. Slowly it lowers down to a old landing pad that looks unused inside the side of a mountain. It hits and the ship stops. Gearing up, the specialist pauses "Perhaps I would be more of a use here at the ship?" He pauses for a moment "Actually no I will follow you. Carry on." Strange man.

The platform is lowered to the ground as snow blankets the area. Looking around what appears to be a deserted encampment of some sort. A double door rests along the furthest walls. Several old equipment rests here and there, like this was some sort of fueling area unused. Its seems to be pretty spooky.

Her gear on, Julianna glanced out the door. "Someone remind me again why we are coming here? Doesn't seem like anyone is home. Or alive. Is there a reason we are truly here and know a knight is here?"

She glanced back. "Make sure everyone is armed and well insulated. Frostbite and death are not acceptable."

A child raised on Coruscant, Jirana has never known true cold. She was majorly bundled up. She looked out at the snow, an expression of wonder on her face. "Wow! Does that fall all the time?"

"Somebody set all this up, Sis, even if it has been a little bit. We'll just have to start searching"

Ursica waited at the door ready to disembark. "May not be acceptable. But sure is a likely scenario if anyone gets lost."

Pressing the door key he lead the way down the ramp and into the cold. Watching for any possible dangers that could be hidden.

Novu had pulled the bulkiest item out of the pack around her waist after they had landed. Making her way back through the cockpit she donned the cloak which would help protect her from the elements. It coupled with her face devoid of emotion really gave her that Jedi look which she had managed to avoid since she didn't care for robes. Pulling the cloak's hood up and over her head and lekku the twi'lek was right behind Urisca.

"With Jirana and I here such a thing should prove difficult," the padawan stated with an air of assuredness.

Looking down the ramp after he is bundled up, he proceeds down it and suddenly stops. He holds out a hand, catching the snow. Sypher tilts his head "This is called snow? Interesting." He raises the hand to his nose and watches it turn to water, dripping down to the ground "Cold and wet." He doesn't look armed and raises up his hood "If we find a computer terminal and battery or other use, it is possible for me to locate the Knight yet it seems this location will not suffice." His eyes dart around the ship and holds his hand out as snow hits it "Interesting."

The specialist goes over to several old computer terminals but finds nothing of use. He then walks over to the doors and goes over to the panel. He inputs his datapad and then pulls it out, pondering something "There is no electical power in this current area for any diagnostics it appears. Do we have a way to remove the door from its openings?"

Novu cast a glance across the team. "I can get it open if we have no other alternatives," the twi'lek noted. Should no other solutions be presented the guardian was prepared to cut her way through the metal. It wouldn't exactly be a tactful approach, but it would get the job done.

Ursica shrugged and started looking around the area. Rummaging through any crates or boxes he found. He could probably get the door open but it would be loud and probably messier than what the Jedi had in mind. And finding enough explosives may be a problem also.

Then he had a thought, no idea if it would work. "Can't you just run power from the ship?"

"It is possible but if something goes wrong, we will indeed be stuck on this planet without any communications outside of it. Running a power source will be the last option. I am unsure of what has caused the power outage. It may pull power from the ship and shot it down. Any varieties of the sort must be acknowledge under the current present time. I am not about to risk it." The tech taps the pad a few times and nods to Novu "If possible please acknowledge my request. Thank you."

"With all due respect Captain, I stated earlier attempting to power the door to the proper levels needed may hinder or stop the ship leaving use here without a proper access to another ship. If we do find another ship, it is indeed possible if it is up to the correct standards for access to space but it will take time if it is indeed possible." The specialist nods to the Captain "I am unsure if we have the correct amount of amnunitions similar to explosides to open the door. But if we have a person who can possibily manage the guns it is another or if we have the tools to melt the door to allow access..." He turns towards the Guardian "If you may? It would be greatly appreciated."

Seeing how the others had decided Novu brandished her lightsaber and stepped up to the door. Aiming the nozzle towards the metal it hummed to life in a dazzling display of sparks and crackling noise. The smell of burning metal was thick in the air. Slowly she traced the cutting blade of energy around the door large enough to accommodate even the tallest of the party. Although lightsabers were formidable weapons they still took a bit of time to cut through heavy steel. Once the silhouette had been cut the twi'lek stowed the weapon back against her waist and gave the door a heavy kick.

The lightsaber sinks into the doorway area and after a few minutes, a wide enough area is cut from it. The specialist watches the guardian and nods his head "If you do not mind, may I take a look at the weapon that is when we have time? Also if you wish for me to not part with it I understand. Impressive weapon." He taps his pad and puts it away and proceeds towards the door but pauses.

Julianna firms her chin and draws her trusty blaster. "Me. Let me go, and you can follow. I can do this."

She stepped forward, drawing her blaster, then edged around the door, being as quiet as possible. She watched ahead, ready to shoot, much like the vigilante she was.

Ursica watched as the Jedi's lightsabre slowly sliced through the door. It was an impressive weapon, he wondered what training was required to wield such a weapon. It had to be as dangerous for the wielder as the foe.

When done he quickly followed the Captain through the opening and stepping to the side looking for cover.

Watching the brash ship captain draw her blaster and charge into the breach full of vim and vigor wasn't entirely unexpected. Those outside of the order always did have peculiar priorities. Her eyes swiveled to the technician. "A jedi's saber is sacred," she informed the man. Seeing how their cathar compatriot was second into the cut door she held a hand out urging Julianna and Sypher to both go ahead of her with the intention of bringing up the rear.

"I did not mean to show you any amount of disrespect and I acknowledge it is a sacred weapon but why is it sacred? Nevermind I supposed you wish not to speak of it but if you wish for me to used my expertise upon the lightstick,  I would be more then happy to examine it for any possible flaws in its design." Sypher probably insulted her. He steps on through, pulling up his hood.

The hallway goes down a few meters then darkness takes over. All the lights seem to be out.

Jirana ignites her lightsaber to provide light in the dark hallway. "It's a defensive weapon and useful in other ways too" she says proudly. "Anyways, I'm too old for the dark to worry me."

The lightsaber glows a bit sending some light beneath the half-open door. Jirana looks under it revealing old computers in two rows. A old holo-grid in the center of the room as well. Kneeling down, Sypher looks into the room and then slips aside if not stopped. Against a wall is a droid-a older model astromech. It looks like it was turned off.

She still had her blaster out. Quiet meant danger, after all.

The tech stands there, seeming like he doesn't even exist. They know he's a computer guy but instead of asking him directly, they don't. He crosses his arms, staring at Julianna "Let's see if you have the capabilities to see if you can provide the adequate power to see if it works? Its hard to tell if it is indeed possible. Perhaps you should have asked someone trained with the abilities possible to do it instead of standing there." He doesn't really think it was rude but hard to tell. He seems serious enough and motions for the others to back up before checking on the astomech first. The man wipes the snow off the top of it, fiddling with it until it flips up. Sypher adjusts a few things and lowers it back down before reaching to the back of the droid. He steps back. Nothing happens for a moment before the droid's lights flicker on. Of course it speaks in binary, makibng whirling sounds and squeaks (like R2).

"What happened here? We need to have the power turned back on to allow further use of the facilities. Do you know of its location?" Sypher asks.

The astromech respondes and starts to head down a seperate hallway

"It appears it will show us where to find the power area and does not know the location of its last programmer or what happened." The tech waits.

Juli frowned. "I did ask. I asked everyone. As Captain, I can do that."

She watched the tech talk to the droid, then sighed. "Lead on. We'll follow and try to keep you from getting killed."

She spun the blaster in her hand, watching him, hoping he was good enough to figure this out. If not, she might shoot him herself. Not truly, but the thought occured.

The tech watches and not agreeing but this wasn't the time and place to discuss this. Plus Sypher needs them and they need his expertise. He stops for a moment, glancing back at the others then follows the astromech. The hall is long and the astromech stops at a intersection looking like a 'Y'. It stops at a small port and it hacks in. A low light come along the ceiling. It beeps a few times. Sypher nods "We have some minor power for the lights. Shall we proceed?" The droid keeps moving and they get to three doors, two are closed and one is open but the light is non-existant. On one door it states 'Med Bay' and on the other 'Med Office'. The droid stops and beeps before Sypher stops for a moment, allowing the others to catch up.

Ursica ignored the captain and the techs disagreement. He was here to help out as best he could. Following along behind the tech and the astromech he kept his rifle ready even though it seemed the base was deserted.

"Lights would be a good idea," Julianna responded. She turned her head. "Be careful Sis. Take someone with you. Just in case."

For herself, she followed the droid and tech. She watched all around her, ready for the lights to come on.

"I believe it would be best for us all to remain together at this juncture would you not agree? Proceeding with the two of us would perhaps be not as wise and we do not know what is behind the doors. I am willing to wait and see if it is possible that my expertise can open the door that is if needbe." It seems he wants to start a fight but not trying to, and is serious. He taps the pad and glances at the astromech that beeps a few times "It is willing to wait and the way wish to go has little or no light."

Something shift slightly upon the ceiling. Perhaps it was the snow and ice. Sypher goes over to the medical bay door. He links into the door and it opens up, sliding into something above. Inside the bay, it looks decent. Two desks link the walls. Several pieces of paper are stacked up nicely. Two computers lie on the desks, monitors turned off. Lights illumiate the area. Three small what looks like bacta tanks but are smaller-about the size of a dog rest on the furtherst wall. They are not lit up. A medical droid lies in the center, no movement coming from it. It looks turned off. There are several beds with unlit unknown items lining them. A large computer is against a wall.

Out in the hallway, its quiet. There's another closed door-Med office and the droid beeps as he waits.

Ursica stood watch as the young Jedi rifled through old papers. He wasn't convinced in the slightest that this place was safe.

"We should concentrate on getting power back up first, if even possible. We can then look for any clues."

LANDING PAD-
-Rasha and Mondal
The two of you on tauntains arrive at a old base. Rasha has seen it but never been inside. As soon as you get close, you can see a old ship resting. And the landing pad is raised up providing no entrance way. There is a set of doors that look recently open but some unknown force but looks sliced through.

Medical Area
-Sypher, Juls, Jirana, Urisca
"I believe he is indeed correct. We should proceed further into the base in search of the powersource to provide adequate light and for more information the computers can provide. Yet it does seem rather odd that this location seems to be intact and up to date other then no power." Sypher speaks up. He nods towards Urisca seeing as he agreed.

Julianna nodded. "Yes, let's look for power. Sypher, can you tell how long the power has been off here? If the power has been off a long time, it could mean the difference between whether it was turned off or failed."

She turned to her sister. "Grab what you think might be important, but let's keep moving. Between the cold and the silence, this place is giving me the creeps!"

Thank the Mother Jungle, a relieved Mondal sighs under his breath as he slides from the back of his Tauntaun. He walks slowly towards the damaged doors, his heart buoyed but his legs shaky with fatigue.

Upon reaching the entrance, the Ithorian stretches his aching back and releases an involuntary groan. After a moment's thought, he addresses his companion. "Rasha Kaddesh of the Tal-Che Kaddesh, it appears our risk has been well rewarded. Shall we proceed and see what help we may find inside?"

 The base is some considerable distance from the old lodge, a fact which makes Rasha visibly uncomfortable - although he doesn't make a point of bringing up why until he and Mondal are on a low ridge overlooking the occupied landing pad and the breached door, "This is further than I have gone in my role as a caretaker... And further than you could have survived, Mondal R'een of the R'een. If we are to find your friend it shall not be here." he states, before adding with perhaps more justice "Although ships in this place are few and far between, it seems as though the strands of the Lifeweb tighten. It is well enough that our feet have been placed upon this path, we should follow it to its end." - gently running his hand along the neck of his Tauntaun, he nimbly urges it down to the base "Let us see who has come to join us."

The tech watches Juls and he responds "I cannot tell you at this moment whether it is possible to return power. We need access to the power core or something similar. As you can tell we are both in the medical area. So you ask something I cannot tell you without proper gear." Well she wanted him to tell her so he did. Sort of "If and when we got the the correct power generatator I should be able to fix it. As for why it failed we need secrurity information."

After a few moments, something starts to head down the hallway towards the group. A old droid found by the group sits in the middle of the hallway and starts to beep. Sypher waits, calm and collected.

The Ranth and Ithorian see the droid beeping. There is little light but enough for them to see the odd droid.

Mondal, swings his head to the side, pausing for a moment as he discerns the dim light of the droid. Cocking his head and holding his breath, both unconscious habits he employs while straining to hear, he fails to discover any threats. Forgetting himself, both his noble lineage and his lack of requisite military training to play the role of a recon scout, he excitedly approaches the droid heedless of the possible danger.

Only as he reaches the droid does he belatedly consider the presence of his friend. Maybe I should have waited for Ranth? he thinks regretfully.
