The group recently forcefully ousted Zix Wheems from command of the Wallas Landing Space Station, and for the time being handed it over to Crix Tosh commander of the maintenance union. Maintneance union personel are frantically trying to bring the stations automated defenses back online by installing a new command center holonet mainframe salvaged from the ship repair facility. This critical task will aid in the possible battle with the inbound Hutt fleet.
The group heads to the docking bay to ready their forces including 5 newly recruited civilian patriots and their A-wing fighters. As they arrive Nara gives an inspirational speech to bolster the fighter groups for defense of the station. Galen's keen eye notices someone sneaking behind some crates midway through the terminal. Galen amplifies his voice as loudly as possible and yells “Hey! Get away from my droids!”
Galen hollers at nearby people to get the guy behind the crate. See he has his blaster drawn, they yell in fright and run and hide. Galen advances toward the crates. Crystalina moves forward to assist Galen. From the rear of the hangar, the group hears a familiar female voice yell loudly, “He has the artifact. Get the droid!”
The person hidden behind crates projects fires their blaster at Galen, and hit- but his shields absorb the damage. A massive Yuzzem brute comes into view with a vibroblade and electric filament whip drawn ready for combat. His attack misses Galen horribly. Krev lines up a shot at the enemy accompanying the Yuzz. Krev misses. Nara commands the assembled soldiers/fighter/pilots to fire on the Voz Crea. They indicate they need 2 minutes to power up ships and ready weapons. Nara quickly commands Pancho to activate guns and target the Voz Crea. Then she tries to use the force to move the L-crates (hiding the initial sneak) into the Yuzz. She is sucessful and hits for 18 pts damage to the Yuzz.
Galen executes a tactical retreat—runs away and hides behind some crates. A beast emerges in front of Crystalina and appears to be a beastly incarnation of Rouk, Nara's recently Rakghoul and then "deceased" brother.. Crystalina fails her induce-fear, butuccessfully tumbles away.
Ghoulish-Rouk moves up to Crystalina and attacks with a vibro axe- and misses. The Yuzz fires up a jetpack flys across the map to corner Galen by some crates. The high priestess Iness smashes one A-wing into two adjacent ships. 26Pts damage for all 3 ships. A random other ship fires upon the Infiltrator. Crit. 92Pts damage. Shields reduce to 62pts. Krev fires as the Yuzz and misses. Nara force-moves the crate at the fighter ship targeting the Infiltrator. 27Pts damage, including the force point for extra damage. Galen desinty points for auto-crit on the Yuzzem with a tranquilizer injection. Use 4 tranq doses. Barely miss the FORT check, with DM giving a half-effect since we know the tranq went in. The Yuzz is down 3 on condition. Galen moves away from the Yuzz, who misses his AoO. Cryst force-chokes Rouk and steps between a pair of ships.
Iness force-pushse a gargantuan ship at the A-wing fighters. 40pts damage to A-wings. Yuzz charges to hit Galen with a vibroaxe. Yuzz spends a destiny point for a crit. 76Pts damage. Galen's shield reduces this to 66pts. Go down condition track while moving to -11 HP. Uses force point to stay disabled rather than destroyed. Sneaky-dude, now fully exposed, takes cover behind the last ship that Iness moved. He fires at Crys and misses. Enemy fighter fires upon the Infiltrator for another 26pts damage. Reduced to 11 by shields.
Krev attacks the Yuzz using a destiny point. 52pts damage. The Yuzz is now down 4 total on condition → -10 to all checks/rolls. Nara strikes the fighter again with the crates again and designates the Yuzz as a target for defensive checks. The fighter takes 16pts damage. Nara then moves away from the Yuzz. Jotti's Bounty opens fire on the gargantuan ship with 3 cannons and on the fighter with another 3 cannons. Attack on the fighter is negated by Vehicular Combat. Gargantuan ships takes 51pts of damage. Droid Pancho maneuvers Jotti's Bounty to the side of the hangar to ready an attack on Iness. Galen has a large gaping in his torso, that is visually appealing with its interesting facets and angles. Crystalina went to move the gargantuan ship with a Destiny point, but Iness used a Destiny point to negate the movement.
The Yuzz barely (force point) picks up Galen and uses jet pack to start retreating. The sneak misses Crystalina. Rouk moves to attack Crystalina. Iness moves for cover from Jotti's Bounty. The enemy fighter advances and shoots at the A-wings. Krev fires at the Yuzz and hits (force point). 13pts damage at the Yuzz, who's visibly very jacked up. Nara smacks Rouk with the crate she still controls. 11Pts against Rouk. 2 A-wing's turn on the Yuzz. The Yuzz dies, and Galen is destroyed. Only the holocrons remain… on the floor.. covered in Yuzzem blood. Light from the hangar glints of the many dozen smoking pieces of Galen..
Other 3 A-wings fire upon Iness. Iness takes the bulk of damage but had a shield. Jotti's Bounty fires on Iness and deals 70pts damage. She dies. Crystalina force pushes Rouk and the sneak at the gargantuan ship. 11Pts against the ship. Rouk and Sneaky take damage while they and the fighter smash up against the gargantuan ship.
Rouk and Sneak in the fighter, and it flies out of the hangar. Just as combat ends, warning alarms sounds that an enemy fleet has entered the sector. Crys crates the holocrons and brings the crate to the Vittus Or. The A-wings that depart to chase the VC fighter are met with combat. One A-wing immediately dies.

Crix calls Nara with message from Hutt fleet. Crix patches the feed to a terminal. Nara and Krev see a command deck of a capital ship and a Hutt of whitish, sickly (for a Hutt) palor and of small stature. He addresses the commander of the station and Crix responds. The Hutt is aware of a group of coaliltion rebels on the station. He demands the body of Jotti and the rebel group be handed over.
Nara pings Crix on pvt commds to agree while continuing to set up defenses. Crixtosh, who the party can see on the terminal, nods and addresses the Hutt leader. Crix tells Boabob the Hutt that he will happily meet demands to maintain neutral standing. The Hutt calls Crix on the lie and demands lowering of shields for a boarding party. Nara asks how many ships are there, by blinking, and Crix proceeds to blink non-stop for about a minute. Nara then offers to delay the Hutt by explaining that the only landing area is occupied by the rebels. BtH gives 10minutes.
The crew of Jotti's Bounty is able to make some quick repairs for about 10 minutes. Station comm comes alive with news that the coalition fleet has arrived. Crix pings Nara to ask if she wants to be privy to the first communications. Typical human-looking military type comes up on screen. Commander Nolan of the Coalition Fleet. He has the Hutt fleet on scanners. Of utmost importance that the party's ships reach Dardalez. Nara informs of 2 main ships and 4 compatriot ships. Nolan asks if the station is operational. Nara relays that the holonet needs another 30min for other than automatic shields and weapons. Nolan asks for asteroid sweepers to provide Coal. Fleet access, which permits the fleet to set up a defensive perimeter. Hutt sweepers have already deployed. Nolan commands Crix to deploy sweepers, and Crix gives acknowledges.
Nolan: Diplomat Nara: Take your ships and head to quadrant IA for most direct launch-path to Dardalez. Do not attempt to jump through the field. Coalition fights/bombers can attach Hutt sweepers. Party leaving station should provide a decoy.
The party can hear random shots, fired by the Hutts through the field, hit the station. There are separate fighters also on the fringes of the asteroid field. Zix Wheems comes on-screen. He asks if the party thinks he can take over the station without challenge? Both Nara and Crys try for a quick force-choke. Zix remains unscatched and immediately cuts off the video feed. The party moves to engage Zix's fighters. Zix's forces block the path to quad IA, after all. An A-wing is destroyed by an asteroid.
Lots of asteroid dodging pilot checks. Lots of use of Vehicular Combat to avoid hits by both sides. After defeating Zix and a fighter squadron deployed by the Hutt fleet in respons to the group attacking their sweeper the group plots their hyper jump for Dardelez Prime.
Only moments before jumping into hyper space they look back to see how the battle between Coalition and Space Station and the Hutt Fleet is going- only to Wallace Landing Space Station go up in a massive explosion as Hutt capital ships pound it from two directions. It is unknown if any of the Coalition fleet survives as the group enters hyper space cut of from communications on their approx. 2 week voyage to Dardelez Prime and Unknown regions..
