Shadows Over the Galaxy

Victory on Onderon!

Whisper Base falls

In their first mission together, the Rebel Alliance's newest operations cell has proven themselves very effective.  Cole wasn't quite sure what to expect from his allies in the beginning.  Their garage ambush failed after Pandora had some difficulty forcing open an AT-ST hatch.  This lead to a tense firefight where a guard almost sounded the alarm, but the crew's blasters and Wookie fists won out.<o:p></o:p>

Their second encounter went better, overpowering the guards at the landing pad.  Hope led the charge with her lightsaber under accurate covering fire from Zork and the others.  Cole took a blaster bolt to the side and required the Jedi's aid afterwards.  Disabling the shuttle was a simple task for Neris; knowing ship engines inside and out, she simply removed a starboard condenser module.<o:p></o:p>

All that remained was taking the control room.  This proved challenging when the party discovered Stormtroopers guarding the door.  To make things worse, a second Stormtrooper squad attacked from a corridor behind.  While Cole re-opened his wound bravely rushing the Imperials, everyone else escaped with some scrapes and minor burns.<o:p></o:p>

After intimidation failed, Neris forced open the control door and the heroes took command of the base.  It quickly became apparent that the base commander, Lieutenant Sarev had escaped through a secret passage was making his way to the nearby comm tower to alert Moff Dardano of Whisper Base’s capture.<o:p></o:p>

Rushing back to the garage, the rebels discovered the Lieutenant had taken an AT-ST to make his escape.  Pandora and Zork fired up the second walker, while Cole and Neris took speeders.  Pandora proved her aptitude with all things racing when she deftly outmaneuvered Sarev and forced him off his path.  With harassing fire from Cole and Neris, Zork vaporized the Imperial’s walker with close range cannon fire.<o:p></o:p>

So, with a little time to breathe, the rebels scouted the base to re-supply and re-arm.  They now have the capability to spy directly on Imperial communications in the Japrael sector.  But what will they do with their half-dozen captives?  And how long until Moff Dardano discovers his pet project is compromised and moves to take Whisper Base back?  <o:p></o:p>
