We are being attacked from three different sides!
There are Reavers all over the place!
Whose idea was THIS?!?
In fact, it turns out that it was some Bloodsmith Raiders
' idea, particularly one Malus Jaidev. Greelo says there's a good bounty on that guy, so I hope we get highlight reel of him blowing up while very close to some Reaver ships.
wields the docking bay tractor beam to good effect while I fire the ion cannon at our incoming and Rushlight
whittles down the Reavers going at the ship which Cenvex
, and the last batch of rescuees are on.
Also also, Rushlight's droid Pepe is supposed to shoot the other Leggy Macaroon down below our plane of combat.
The Bloodsmith Raiders broadcast emergency calls. They are getting boarded by Reavers. I am, you know, unsympathetic. Bloodsmith Raiders do slavery, they steal body parts (okay, some of those are tinny body parts) and implant them in their own bodies, and now we find out they also CLONE some of their slaves and do GENETIC MODIFICATIONS on them.
In the distance, the Nightsisters do not broadcast emergency calls but they are
suddenly busy with their own Reaver attacks.
A bunch more Reavers suddenly activate at once, all around us . . . this feels like an old Separatist tactic. There has to be something coordinating, that can broadcast activation commands in a cone shape onto the entire plane of combat at once. Two directions would work, "up" and "down" form our current position; I look up.
There's a macaroon!
It's actually a probe droid the size of a damned starfighter
which is certainly not ideal.
I shoot it with the ion cannon until my handle gets warm!
That stops it, though not necessarily the activated Reavers, but then a bunch of Spartan Imperium fighters are here, including at least one full-on SSD, and Zadra says the Spartans work with a faction of her species called the "Krathax" who are all a very big problem. She wants to leave. Right now.
I just told the blue-furred Cathar
Admiral Toru Nhamal Hunitar
of the Spartan Imperium that the Banana Republic and the "leviathan" and the shuttle on which Iwa is, are all my mission group to recover people taken by the Bloodsmith Raiders, that I acquired and "repurposed" the leviathan "for the greater good".
And who would not believe Captain Dizzy Vorysadora? She's so PRECISE and CALM and GENUINE and STRAIGHTFORWARD and BUSINESSLIKE.
So Mom and I and Morticia run to Vader who transports us over to the Aw'akeen ship, allowing there to be organics "running" the ship in case we get scanned. Meanwhile, Greelo and Badly Injured Jangir Toth and Rushlight are now searching the ship for fake!Silar Mins and the Bloodsmith Raiders who had been locked in the brig until we had that POWER BLINK during the fight.
Two days later! We have had FOOD and also SLEEP and indeed SHOWERS, possibly even CLOTHING CLEANING :)
Now we are at the Chentavari Plex and Rushlight is going on and on and on about somebody called "Triune". :shrug:
This is not getting us into the rescue.
Rushlight finds out that fake!Silar is probably responsible for a portal opening and "Triune" coming through and that's what lead the Bloodsmith Raiders to this ancient Aw'akeen communications station.
