Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

Mrs Kirk would be the one to arrive at the Recreational Room today. Just because she wasn’t seen as often didn’t mean she was passive in any way, shape or form. Even though she /did/ allow herself some time to rest and gather energy for when the baby boy of Alexandra Kirk and James T. Kirk was born. That being said, the newly weds got some work done as well. Everyone was pitching in and helping. As a team should. Kara was the one most people saw and to a degree, it was meant to be such. Alex was confident that Kara would make a good Captain, though she would need some experience first. Hence why Kara had been seen mostly alone. Diana was also about, though she was mostly doing other things. All of the Captains were now aware of the droid factory and secret Imperial bases upon Naboo. Kara gave the report yesterday. Alex got herself a glass of juice and took a seat. She would have to eat something soon, too. Had to gather all of that energy and the important substances for her body.

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

 The younger adoptive sister would soon join Alex where she was. A smile was on her lips, happy to see her sister out and about. ”Hello, Alex.” Kara greeted happily as she too took a glass of orange juice, before she sat down next to Alex. ”Everything going okay with you and Little Kick?” Had to make sure everything was safe in that regard. ”You look rested. Which is really, really good.” A cheers to Alex, before taking a sip. Ahhh! She was really nervous and excited about becoming an aunt. To see the family expand was magical. Even if Alex and she are not related by blood, it was still family. With James being her brother-in-law, Alex her adoptive sister and now Tiberius her nephew on the way. It was would be wonderful! 

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

Alex was happy to see Kara. That being said, she was good at checking in on both her and Jim. Oftentimes asking if there was anything they needed or something along those lines. Things appeared calm today, though they were all aware of the droid factory /and/ the secret Imperial bases. Which meant they had missions coming up. There was another matter she wanted to talk about further – the red rock that Kara mentioned the previous day. ”Hey, Kara.” She smiled towards her. Alex raised her glass too, taking a few swigs from it. Thirsty. ”Things are wonderful. And I’m getting plenty of rest. So is Jim and… Little Kick is not very much for resting.” She chuckled. ”Much like his parents, I suppose.” Neither Alex or Jim were known for being lazy or laying down for longer than needed. Despite being injured at times. ”Some days I just feel so exhausted. Jim insists I get some rest, whereas I tell him we got plenty of work to do.” A smile was forming once more. ”At times we both end up resting.” They did. Yet they got work and tasks done too. It was lovely. Just perfect. ”How does it feel to be a Co-Captain?” She was curious. Right now it was casual talk between the two.

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

 Kara was relieved to hear the words from Alex. Rest. They had both earned it and then some. ”You guys have been at this for over two years.” Day to day, one could say. ”This is good for you both.” Even the Girl of Steel had to take a step back at times. Sometimes you had to in order to learn about your enemy… to recharge energy… or anything, really. A soft chuckle then. ”Yeah, I’d be surprised if he wasn’t. Both of you have tons of energy.” They most certainly did. Jim and Alex. They both got into the heat of battle. Then again Kara was pretty much like that, so it was probably a family trait of sorts. Kara was incredibly happy for Alex. She had never seen her this happy before. All thanks to James. ”Aside from still getting used to it, I think it’s going well.” Kara said. She /could/ be a leader when the situation called for it. But Alex was much better at it. So was James. ”I just want to make you and James proud.” 

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

Two years. More than that, even. At times she wondered where time went? ”Despite the dangers and troubles, those two years have been the best of my life.” Due to reasons. ”Going on an adventure… meeting Jim… falling in love… getting together… engaged… married and now expecting our first kid.” All of that had happened. When she took that leap into the unknown. An adventure for sure. Alex smiled towards Kara then with her words. ”You’ll do terrific. And you’ll be one helluva aunt.” Another cheers, before drinking more of the orange juice. ”I’m so proud of you, Kara. For everything.” She wanted her little sister to know that.

 

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

 ”A romantic, action filled adventure.” Kara chuckled with the images. Raising her glass as well. ”I’m glad and honored to be with you guys. Despite all the hardships we’ve face.” The hardships they were about to face. Her adventure had been similar, too. Plenty of action, trouble… but also love. Rex Hanson. Her shadow. She met him thanks to being here. With Alex and Jim. With Alex’s words, Kara couldn’t help but smile and hugged her. Kara didn’t want Tiberius to go through what she did. Losing her parents and home. ”Thank you, Alex.” She murmured.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

Alex hugged her back. Sisterly hug. They did that quite often. Alex and Kara were close and had been for most of their lives. Aside from when they were teenagers. They barely got along then. Until one day where it all changed. ”To think there was a time where I didn’t want you to come here. I mean, I did but…” As her older sister, she had wanted to protect Kara from all of this. ”Now when I look back on some of the encounters, I realize that we wouldn’t have made it without you.” She smiled, feeling ashamed that she had tried to prevent Kara from coming her. By advising against it. ”I’m really happy to have my sister here. Jim is happy having you here as well.” Kara was an inspiration to all. With her kindness, strength and courage.

 

Lady Fett

* With her legs hanging off the side of the ramp of her small ship, Ailyn Vel Fett held a laser rifle in her lap with mutiple parts around her. The rifle might as well been a weapon version of a patch up quilt, made up of odds and ends of Lady’s Fett adventures. Svout the Probe droid, with his strech out oval shape head and singluer red lens eye, hovers back and forth of Fett’s shoulders.*

 

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

Both Kara and Alex were currently in the Recreational Room, having had a casual/good talk so far. They had missions they had to look it into. There was no shortage of them. ”That red rock the raccoon? I… I couldn’t tell if it was kryptonite.” Kara admitted and had mentioned it to Alex yesterday. If anyone could find out what it was, it would be Alex. ”It didn’t make me feel weak or anything. But he mentioned green turning into red.” Which was accurate. Due to more reasons than one. Her eyes looked to Alex, questioning and confused features ensued. 

 

 

Lady Fett

*With a click and a single hit with her fit, Fett puts all the parts back together again.* Alright, that’s rifle 35, all cleaned up and the busted scope has been replaced. Too bad we couldn’t go to Naboo, I would have liked to get some of their new tech. *Scout beeps in reply causing Fett to laugh as she got to her feet.* I know but, most bounties are worth more alive than dead, tis why a stun or deactvtor would be nice. Well, better let the others know were not dead, not getting paid to do nothen even if in recovery. *Walking towards the reaction room Scout beeps and whistle once more.* Psh, I know. Could do nothen and they wouldn’t fuss, perhaps bickering with Sora and them worn them out. I did warn them about his personal veiws. *Entering the Reacreation Room, Fett wore the same under armor that she wore yesterday, dull grey suit with blaster burns here and there, and a stich up path of where Vance’s saber struke through.* What now about green to red? Hopefully not talking about light sabers, thats black market if your thinking of buying or selling.

 

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

Alex was going to mention that as well. About the red rock that Helveraccoon was in possession of. Which was troubling indeed. ”As we both know, Red Kryptonite was the result of a failed attempt at creating Green Kryptonite. None other than Maxwell Lord.” What an asshole. Always so smug, yet got what he deserved in the end. ”Yet you said you didn’t feel anything.” Alex pondered that for a moment. ”Probably too low quantity for it. Maybe even too low quality.” In short – red kryptonite wasn’t naturally found in the universe. Not to mention if the kryptonite was from another universe, it might not have any effect on Supergirl. Alex looked to see Fett walk in and shook her head. ”No. But considering red crystals are also a sythesised version of lightsaber crystals, it’s close.” In sense, it was. ”We have lightsabers and then some.” She smiled. Alex has two, officially. But she had these thigh-sockets for lightsabers. And they had five each. Why she held so many was anyones guess. ”How are doing, Fett?”

 

Lady Fett

Kry-what? I haven’t heard of that, some sort of color changing metal that people can create or find? As for sabers, I always found people who have or had one always have bad luck. In other words owning a saber always brings trouble, hmp, true what they say, pretty is, is what pretty does. As for me, I be feeling much better if this cursed hole in my chest would heal up already and my shoulder stop cramping on me. Other than that I can take on any job.

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

”Yeah it… just changes color. It’s nothing interesting. Aside from… changing colors.” Kara offered as explanation. She wasn’t keen on talking about kryptonite so openly. The fact that the raccoon had a chunk of it was bad enough. The mention of lightsabers, well… Kara wasn’t the one with The Force here. Alex was. ”I think you need to have The Force in order to use them? Like… without hurting yourself.” That being said, The Emperor had also issues a rule against carrying them. Which made sense – if someone carried one, they were most likely a Jedi and were killed on the spot. It was a twisted rule. ”Actually… we /do/ have atleast two jobs that needs to be done.” Glancing to Alex for a moment, before smiling towards Lady Fett. 

 

Lady Fett 

Oh really? Kara right? Free advice for the day, don’t ever say its nothing interesting to someone or wanting to hide something, it only make the person more curiuos. As for the job? What is it? Another prison break? Stopping asassain droids again? Or something new?

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”Kara. My adoptive sister.” Alex mentioned, a bright smile towards Kara. Indeed, they had jobs here. Tasks that needed to be resolved. Hopefully the kryptonite topic wouldn’t be brought up anytime soon. That raccoon was in deep trouble, that’s for sure. ”It’s new.” It was, actually. ”There are two new pieces of the large information puzzle.” She started. ”One is the fact that there’s a droid factory on Naboo. Underwater. These droids are constructed by none other than extremists.” Something that had been mention when Jim, Kara and Helveraccoon were on Naboo last time. ”The other piece of information comes from Han Solo. About secret Imperial bases on Naboo. Ones hidden from sight.”

 

Lady Fett

For second there I was going to say, there is no way Sora or his supporters would allow a droid facorty unless, unless *Tapping her chin, she leans aginest the wall while proping one leg.* Unless they have been modifited to standerds of Naboo non-leathel weaponary. Yet, *She drops her hand away from her chin and casually points towards Alex.* You say its underwater? Then one of the Gun-Gan’s must be betarying the people of Naboo and the old peace treay among humans and Gun-Gans. This can turn very ugly if not handled right or quickly yet, too quickly and we may make matters worse.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”The droid factory is underwater from what Helveraccoon told Kara.” Motioning for her. ”He felt a signal. As a technomancer, he’s able to detect droids and machinery in a different way than we do.” So they would have to rely on that for this one. ”My guess is that a droid can get past security checks while still being a threat.” Atleast that was her guess. ”Which would explain how they got onto the planet. Unless corruption is spreading among the higher-ups.” Not impossible. ”From what Helveraccoon told Kara, the extremists are in the possession of these droids.” If there were Gungan among their ranks was unknown. It was likely.

 

Lady Fett

The reason why I say Gun0gan is because they live underwater in HUGE bubble like cities. Unless its in some long far out who knows-where waters, most likely it Gun-gan because they can have easy acess to this factory. Then again, I never been to a Gun-gan city or village, I only heard stories. I hate to say things without seeing it with my own eyes. **Stories told once from her parnets, ugh, an anoying reminder of them plauges her mind. Most of the negative vib towards her father.* So, we have a hint, rumor, whatever you want to call tib-bit of infomation. Wait…*Her face picks up and Fett stands back up on her two as if a light buld went off on her head.* You know the race of Master Naomi? Her race LIVES underwater, simalir to Gun-Gans. RATS! I bet she’s already on the case!!

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

 Kara watched as Fett mentioned Master Naomi. ”Why would she go there alone? These are extremists.” Not that they were a danger to /everyone/. But those with less powers and civilians were in danger because of them. ”The Gungans, or some of them, are probably involved. Or being used.” In truth she didn’t want to put a brand on them and assume things. But they surely had a hand in it somehow. 

 

Lady Fett

How should I know? Just because I came from aclan that has hunted Jedi, doesn’t mean I understand everything about them. Maybe to come and go as she please? Besides, there are plenty of other ways folks can sneak in and out of the water when most of the people’s focus on the land, remember? The elections? From nearly getting killed and trying to become a senator, Gotta say Sora got his hands full.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”Naboo is going to be one warm place unless these things are tended to. Writer is thinking tomorrow is mission time, due to Helveraccoon wanting to be a part of it. ”The droids were most likely constructed on the planet without anyone noticing.” Sounded like the logical approach in such an event.

 

Lady Fett

Family life, polictics, and trying to keep a hard earned peace between two races of land and water. Sounds like to me Sora needs some help, and we get our help from Gun-gan cheif. We could at least get the proper equiment for the underwater travel unless, you guys got some toys I haven’t seen yet?

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

”We’ve never had any underwater missions so far.” Atleast not since Kara joined the crew. If they had, Alex would have mentioned it.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”She’s right. We’ve never had to go underwater. Yet.” Seems they would have to now.

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

 Kara took another sip from her orange juice. ”I can hold my breath for a long time.” The one and only time she had to fight underwater didn’t work out all that well, however. ”And there are those Iron Suits, too. For underwater adventures.” 

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

She smirked at that. ”Yeah those’ll come in handy incase things get out of hand.” And she was well aware of the incident. Kara versus a submarine. ”Just remember to /actually/ hold your breath this time. You had me worried the last time.”

 

Lady Fett

We can either get the equiment from Sora, senator of Gun-gans, or we can do it the fun way.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

There were options. Definitely options. ”I feel I should tell you that we intend to take these droids for our own use. Reprogram them.” That was what Jim wanted. And Alex wasn’t one to throw away something that could still be of use. ”Our decision should have a say in what approach we choose.” Looking to Kara for a moment. ”Since we’ll need a way to get them off planet onto one of our ships.”

 

Lady Fett

Then I would strike Sora off the list, I have a feeling he won’t even allowed Scout on Naboo unless I remove his laser gun. So our best bet would be Gun-gans but, I haven’t had any contact with them on Naboo so, I am not sure if they are on the band-wagon with Sora’s supporters. If Sora finds out there’s deadly droids, he will most likely destroy them.

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

 ”Those droids are better off in our hands, rather than the extremists.” Kara was there when the droids attacked. As was James. ”Taking them off planet would be doing them a favor, not the opposite.” Not to mention they had helped the last time they were attacked. 

 

Lady Fett

So, anyone want to place a bet? I bet Sora will allow you guys to the droids as long you take them away from his planet. On the other hand, Sora won’t allow you guys to have any droids, and have them all destroyed in crushing or burned way, so badly they wont even be worth selling as scarpe metal.

I say Sora won’t allow you guys to have nothen to do with the driods. If I win, I get to know about Kyp crtyal thing that not so important. If I lose well, I will ask me all the questions you want with no hold backs, for one hour.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”Getting the droids isn’t the issue.” Alex had a feeling these extremists would put up a good fight, though she knew what this Crew was capable of. Finding and getting the droids was the easy task. ”The tricky part is getting them off of Naboo. I have no use for scrap heaps. None of us do.” Alex stated. ”We want them functional as they leave.” This was no betting thing. ”A solution needs to be found and stuck to. How do we get the droids off planet?” Anyone was allowed to suggest something. There would be a debriefing before the mission tomorrow as well.

 

Lady Fett

Getting them is one thing, getting them pass NO-fight club is another, most likley you have another fight on your hands, and risk having bad blood with a powerful ally like a senator or two.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”I don’t have time for politics.” She said, trying to figure out a way around that. A blood bath was possible, unless Sora saw reason. And they had tried more times than not to get their point across. War. Isn’t. Pretty. If those of Naboo were unwilling to adapt, they wouldn’t succeed. ”That’s assuming they find out about it.” Indeed. They could do this differently. ”What about shutting down the planetary shields for a couple of minutes?” It was a plan. ”That’ll be enough time for someone to beam them up. Once that’s done, the planetary shields will be back on.”

 

Lady Fett

Great idea oh wait, you have any idea where and how to shut down such important peice of equiment?

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”I don’t.” She admitted. ”But someone does.” That was one of the options. ”Look, we’ve saved Sora not only once but /twice/. We want those droids. If nothing else, he owes us.” They never usually asked for payment for their work. But so far, they had been given nothing. ”Not to mention it’ll be one less thorn at his side.” The Imperials couldn’t do much… yet. But they would probably strike sooner or later.

 

Lady Fett

Maybe, I was taught you gotta be carful when you do stuff for free, gotta make sure it be worth in the end or you get burned. No one knows much about Sora’s history or family ties for that matter and it drives me nuts. Is it not strange how the girl Sara, Sora, and Cyra all have the same last name but, only 2 out of 3 are related. At this point how do we even know Cyra and Sora are realted? If we can’t even figure out their last name, how can we predict his next move? What are your thoughts Kara? Other than saving Sora’s life, do we know anything else about him?

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

 Kara didn’t see what Sora’s history had to do with all of this. In her mind, it made no sense. It felt like whenever they needed something done, people always tried to dissuade them somehow. ”I was adopted, so I don’t find it that strange.” Kara admitted. Danvers being her adopted last name. ”Alex and I had the same last name before she got married and we’re not related at all.” So in her mind it wasn’t so strange. Since, well… she was in that situation. ”We don’t know much about him. And to be honest I’m more concerned about the war right now.” She looked to Alex. ”Also more focused with protecting my family. Which these droids can do. And other innocents too.” 

 

Lady Fett

Maybe your right, I just get this werid feeling that I seen Sora before but, in person and not just a hologram. I think it’s his werid eye color, sliver like the scales of a dragon I once saw on Korriban. Long story short, there was adragon that was a bodyguard to the Empress, his name was Aku, which means evil in the country called Japan. Maybe its the meds messing with my head, a human having the eyes of a dragon? Psh, *shaking her head she pours herself a cup of soda.* Ok, how to get a bunch of droids off a planet…You think after you guys get them we should “A” smuggle them out or “B” buy them or buy the right to get them out? Either way is better option than going into another battle.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”Yeah, well… we’ve not paid for anything so far.” In truth – they don’t carry money or credits. Not to writers knowledge, atleast. ”Smuggling would be our option then.” Not to mention Alex wouldn’t buy rights to get them out. A blood bath wasn’t what they wanted. So smuggling would probably be the way to go. The dragon tale was unheard of, so she wasn’t sure what to make of it. ”We’ve seen a lot of crazy stuff, right Kara? Both on Earth and since we arrived on Hellifyno.”

 

Lady Fett

OK, smuggling is something I do know how to do. I just need to spend a week on Naboo and figure out how they work their sercurity. I perfer 2-3 weeks but, I assume we may not have that much time. At the very least I need 3 days and thats pushing it. Before you even ask, I charge extra if you ask to smuggle a bunch of droids in one day. Most likly I have to come up with bypass codes on the fly and come up with a nice story of why we have so many boxes. Better yet, hope that NONE of the driods suddenly decided to wake up or worse, have malfunction. If you think I am crazy just think, I am thinking of every possible outcome. Too bad we don’t have my pal Blue Rose, she could say we just won a bunch of prizes and flirt with the sercurity gaurds, that plot worked 90% of the time.

I assume you met Blue Rose? At least two of you did on the rescue mission on Coruscant, she is the manager of the Flirtatious Hotel and her own radio host. Last I talked to her she wanted to me to find more about her Ace, her sister’s death. That however, is another story.

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

”Tyler and Daniels met her. Since they were the ones going there.” Kara informed. ”Me and Kirky were dealing with the other places, trying to find Sora.” They had taken one place each at first. A sisters death. And more deaths would come unless the Empire was stopped. 1 week or three days. Well… as soon as possible would be the best. ”As soon as possible, I’d say.” Looking to Alex who nodded in agreement.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”As long as we stick to the plan, everything else will work just fine.” She was sure of it. ”Time isn’t really our side, no. So whenever you can get this done the better.” The sooner they got those droids off of Naboo the better.

 

Lady Fett

Number one rule of ANYTHING, its extrenly rare for anything to go as planned. Sniper job, not to bad as long there isn’t any interuptions. Smuggling, it depends on knowledge and I can only read what has been posted. I could hack into their systems and hopefully it wont be traced back to us and say your expecting a shipment, problem is, we dont have excat number of shipments and that will raise a red flag. The less we muddle with, the less for us for things to go wrong, in theory. May I ask, what kind of experinces do you two have? Anything, anything no matter what may prove useful.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”Something we all know all too well.” Plans seldom went according to plan. That didn’t mean one should lose their cool and so on. Whatever plan they might have, had to be seen through. All of their missions involved danger – that was nothing new. ”If we use a secure channel, it won’t be tracked back to use.” And they always used secure channels. Due to reasons. One of their contacts, Katherine Kane, had some of that tech. Not to mention the DEO as well. ”Hacking into their systems should be done. Just so that we know.” As for the experiences they had, well… ”Well we’ve fought of metahumans and aliens on Earth. Or just about any bad guy.” There was that. ”On Hellifyno we’ve fought a number of beings. I’m also a Force Sensitive, bio-egineering and doctor. I know my way around technology and weapons.”

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

”And I’m Supergirl, so I fight those who seek to harm my family and innocents. I can catch bullets, lift a bus and much more.” Some of her powers had been on display. ”There’s… a lot I can do. And we both have varying experiences.” 

 

Lady Fett

Doctor, techy dash hacker, super whatever you need? Hmm, ok Kara? You been down there what’s the vib like? You know? Is calming or is it fast pace? Uneasy? I am trying to get an idea of the enviroment.

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

 Alex was definitely skilled in many things. As was Kara, in a sense. Multiskilled. Eliza would be proud of her daughters. ”It’s fairly calm. But those three assassin droids caught them off guard.” Kara mentioned. ”They’re calm because they don’t know about everything going on.” So it was a bittersweet situation at best. 

 

Lady Fett

I am sure they know more than they let on. They just have safe bubble of a world and try not to wonder what’s going on other planets. *Smirks at the moment about the droids.* I bet, picture yourself with no militray traning and no weapons on you unless, you carry a heavy duty deactivtor.

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

”They pretend the problems aren’t there and so they just carry on with their day.” Sweeping it under the rug, in a sense. ”Or if you’re Supergirl and have powers. Not to mention those with The Force.” They had weapons without physically wearing them. Alex had always had weapons. Even if she didn’t, she always had her fists and kicks.

 

Lady Fett

I can only assume yet, I am sure Sora has some kind of plans on his mind. We can also fake a going into labor to smuggle the driods onboard a ship.t

 

Dr. Alexandra Kirk (DM)

Writer is sleepy, so will have to go to bed after this post. ”Whichever way is the fastest onto the planet and the fastest out.” Alex reminded them. ”The extremists will have to be dealt with once the droids are located. After that it’s a matter of getting them off of there. Smuggling seems to be the way to go as far as I can tell.” Though she was getting sleepy. Being pregnant was tiring, at times. ”For now though, I must return to Jim. We’ll speak more about it tomorrow before we set the plan in motion.”

 

Lady Fett

Yeah, first we got to get the droids. Night y’all

 

Kara Zor-El (DM)

 ”Agreed.” They had gotten some ideas and thoughts shared today. Which was good. ”Goodnight everyone!” Kara would follow Alex to hers and Jim’s room, wishing them a good nights sleep and so on, before Kara made her way to her room for the night.
