Humble Beginnings...or so They Say: Czerkaresections

Post by Alastar » Wed Jun 22, 2005 3:38 am

The OOC thread can be found here; http://www.starwars-exodus.com/forum/vi ... 377#124377

IC:

A small company of ships were soaring through hyperspace, there origins, were unknown, there location, was also unknown. The three ship fleet had been flying through the known galaxy for nearly four decades. They went from planet to planet selling small arms and armour to poor planetary systems, in trade for fuel, safety, and for over all a place to rebuild a once large and powerful corporation known to date back as far as the Old Republic itself, if not longer. That corporation was known as Czerka Corporation.

Czerka Corps had been around for nearly five millenias, with it's ups and downs alike, back in the times of the Great Hyperspace Wars, and the Mandalorian Wars to follow, and even up to the datings of the forming of the Old Republic, this large and prosperous company, had been making large profits, both legally, and illegally. With no real power telling them what they could and couldn't do, they had at times, been working as slave traders, black market weaponry, illegal hunting, and some legal transactions like, selling small arms, armours, and food products.

But after the forming of the Republic, and the defeat of there number one contractor being the Sith, they fell out of the picture. They had no contractors due to there dishonesty, and extreme morale pursuits, that the Republic, who had been a sub-contractor of theres, no longer wished for a contract with Czerka Corps. Thus dealing a severe blow to the former Galctic Corporate Powerhouse, and ultimately making there ware unreliable, and useless, for with no home planet to make stuff, meant no more wares to produce and sell.

The once large corporation went from good to bad, and then to far worse. They went into debt largely with other Republican contractors, and ultimately lost there ability to do anything. Which made them seem to just vanish from the buisness, and they dissappeared without a trace.

However, five millenias later, after producing enough income from trading with high income planets, who were in need of protection, a man who inheirited the company through his generations, finally started to turn a profit, a small profit, but a profit nonetheless.

The small fleet consisted of two Corellian Gunships, and a Corellian Corvette. He had aquired the three ships through his generations, and had to be repairing them constantly, though they looked beaten and dead, they worked quite well until he had found somewere to settle down, and start rebuilding his forefathers great Czerka Corporation. His name? His name was Luca Anor a forty year old man, whom had been searching along the many trading routes of the known galaxy, for nearly two decades. He'd found three planets that had been proved to possibly fill his need, fill his goal, and could provide a good asset, close to partnerships, and closer to the Core, which every company, or major corporation only dream of wanting.

Luca along with his Gunships and Vette, also had an assortment of frieghters and transports, which housed the needed equipment, to begin what he'd wished to begin. Also with him, were loyal subjects, whom he could trust with the day to day dealings of a moving corporation. But most importantly, his family, well his adopted family at that, thrity-four year old Sara Anor, a human like himself, and quite attractive as well, there eighteen year old daughter Lusara Anor, a human as well. But the strange thing was, there adopted son twelve year old Srat Vanhorn, a male Zabrak, which they had adopted or picked-up, as you would on Sluis Van, at a young age of two. But it was weird his mother was a Zabrak, and had not the credits to support both herself and young Srat, and his father who was killed roughly the same time that the Galactic Civil War had begun.

Though they had taken him into there family, and he had grown quite attached to the equipment designer Mira Solnar Sr's. daughter Mira Solnar Jr., who was about thirteen years old, and a Zabrak as well. They had also stopped by few places were Jedi's had looked upon the young boy, maybe when he was only eight and nine, and said stuff like he was one with the Force, and all that Jedi talk. Luca couldn't understand, and so he hadn't paid any attention to it at all.

Luca was awoken abruptly out a sleeping slumber when the red lights on the Vette CC was starting to gon on and off noisingly and britghly. Lucas got up, put his quick clothes on and ran spedely to the bridge.

"Whats going on Pancra? Why are the battle alert system going off in the middle of the night?" Luca demanded.

"Luca, Sir, it seems that were are coming under an attack by a local irate gang known as the Convoy Raiders.They raid convoys for fun and game, but mostly for the prize. And with our equipment they could become very rich, and become it very fast. Shall I call the fighters to there stations? And alert the unarmed freighters and transports to head for the outer system sir?" The longime friend and cheif of security questionally asked Luca.

"Yes Pancra, alert the freighters and transports out of harms way. What are we going against?" Luca asked.

"The pirates have two Corvettes, and a Marauder Corvette, they may have the upper hand here sir." Pancra said, as the overhead message was just coming up ALL MEN TO THERE BATTLSTATIONS, THIS IS NOT A DRILL, I REPEAT THIS IS NOT A DRILL....OVER AND OUT.

COMM OPEN
Freighters and transports we are coming under attack, retreat to the outer system, head for cover...over and out, I rerapeat we are coming under attack, head for the outer system.
TRANSMISSION ENDING


"Sir will we have enough firepower?" Pancra questioned the wise man.

"I hope so Pancra." was the only response he got from Luca as he turned and went back to his command seat.

OOC: And I made a miscalculations earlier, the pirates have three Corellian Corvettes, and not two and a Marauder, otherwise this battle will be a hands down victory for them

IC:
The transports and frieghters quickly fled the scene, and made there way to the outer system. The Vette, and Gunships were slowly making there way to the the three fleet ship was no dount launching there figh...just as predicted, they were already launching fighters. It looked like they had uglies coming from there hangar bays, that or the remarkably fast T-Wings.

The Czerka fleet however wasn't unarmed, they had an escorted squadron of Cloakshape Bombers, with an additional squadron of Headhunters aboard the CC. They also had yet another surprise for these young, and over confident band of theives.

DAYS EARLIER
The N'Zoth III defense and policing crews had been a last trade with the small Czerka Corps fleet, but they had managed to purchase a couple of small transports, and quite the abundance of credits, they also took on a small Hunting job, hunting local pirates and other such criminals, they had currently connected on a hunt, and made roughly one million credits, not too shabby.

These Convoy Raiders, had been wrecking all trades with out of systemers with N'Zoth III, and many have gone and been crushed by these over confident pirates. Luca had said they will be back, the prize, the needed equipment for his planet, and the proper equipment needed for start building up his inventory. As payment, N'Zoth III officials would get a thirty-five percent discount, on all Czerka Corp products.

A great deal, done at a great time.

CURRENT TIME
BETWEEN THE LOROMAR AND PIRATON ASTEROID SYSTEMS


The battle was upon both the Czerka Corp fleet and the three shipped Vette fleet of the Convoy Raiders. Luca Anor, the rightful heir to the Czerka corporation was issueing orders to the transports, the frieghters, the fleet, the fighters, and all those were going to be key in there upcoming victory.

The squadron of Headhunters swarmed out of the CC's hangar like mynocks hovering away froma depleted energised battery, and searching for a new one to feed from. The Transports being escorted by the dozen or so freighters were easily creeping away from the enemy fighters and Vettes.

The pirate Vettes were hastily speeding towards the Czerka fleet, the piartes had three squadrons of T-Wings, they do not care for bombers or nuttin of the sorts, they rely solely on stealth and speed, nothing else.

The T-wings quickly came upon the Headhunters, but several of the inexperienced pirate pilots, had forgotten to put there front deflectors on, and about eight of them did not survive the first assualt, though one Headhunter was destroyed.

The Vettes had begun battle with the Czerka ships, and firing had begun upon the Gunships, and the CC and return fire begun as well.

The pirates started there attacks upon the CC , and several of them were picked off by the Czerka Gunships. The one Gunship had slowly become damaged, the report came up as 50% down sheilding, and several malfunctioning weaponry.

The Cloakshapes were then ordered for there first bombing run, the target was to be the Corvette which had been disembling Czerkas Gunship.

The attack was a success, the Gunship returned a volley of fire upont he Corvette, and the ship slowly began to decay from the outside, to the inside. Moments later the Corvette exploded into a very beautiful and colourful site to see. Though unfortunately it also signalled the death of several hundred men.

The pirate fleet had two Vettes remaining, and the Czerka fleet had its full fleet of ships on the go.

The pirates were trying to do the old we got you outnumbered trick early on, but that was quickly shredded with the elimination of the one Vette.

The pirate Vettes remaining were trying to only bide time, but for what?

We have taking there one Vette, and have eliminated it from battle, but what are these pirates doing? Outnumbered outgunned, outmanned, they have no chance in Sithspawn any more, but why continue fighting a winless battle? Luca kept thinking to himself, as the pirates were still fighting as if they had three Corvettes, instead of only two.

Luca had thought of this since the destruction of the first Vette, the two Gunships slowly closed in on the second Vette, and slowly started to fire rapidl;y upon it. The Cloakshapes were told to do there second of three runs, this time on the Vette that the CC was working on.

"Sir, we are preparing our attack run. Shall we abort or continue Sir?" The Bomber leader announced to the CC before going onwards.

"I want you to destroy that Vette, advance Lueitenant. Luca replied over the Czerka Comm.

"Yes sir....C Sqaud, set our course for Pirate Vette number two." "Yes squad leader" was the evident response over the comm.

The Cloakshape bombers buzzed off from the main fight and quickly sped towards the Corellian Corvette which was engaging the Czerka Vette CC.
The bombers sturck out at the Vette with speed and accuracy, and quickl;y disbaled the shields in no time at all. the Vette CC quickly ther after gave a large volley of torpedoes at the opposing Vette, and it soon deafened the void of space with it's brilliant array of blasts and detonations.

The final Corevtte was still fighting off the pair of Gunships still, and to no avail, it wqas outgunned, and outnumbered, and the CC was slowly bearing down on it's flank.

just as soon as the CC got on it's flank, Luca heard a buzz coming from the comm unit.

OPEN TRANSMISSION
Corvette classified as CC this is Captain Duhma of the Convoy Raiders. I understand there is a bounty on our heads, dead or alive. I'am not the leader of the group, but I understand I still have my rights for surrender?

I'am now putting my sheilds down, and powering down all weapons, I hope that youi do the same, for destroying an unarmed ship would be considered as murder, and would be dishonourable, Captain over and out.
TRANSMISSION CLOSED

"Sir we have been given surrender. There ship has completely powered down sir." Pancra exclaimed in victory as he reported to Luca.

"Tell all Czerka craft to power down as well, and get a boarding crew ready," Luca replied "call for me when this mess is done with." Luca nodded and returned to his cabin.


A boarding crew was sent to the pirate Vette, and the pirate Captain was apprehended, along with the pirate crew.

"Set speed towards N'Zoth III, immediately." Pancra shouted commands to the bridge crew. Moments later the Czerka fleet along with it's newest addition, jumped to the N'Zoth system.

N'ZOTH SYSTEM

Two Corvettes, and two Gunships, both Corellian makes, jumped into the N'Zoth system, and started to near towards the 3rd planet in the system.

Transmission Started
Czerka Fleet, welcome back, you have been cleared to land. We would also wish to assume that you have apprehended the Convoy Raiders? Since you return with one ship more, then what you had left with.

Over, and out...
Transmission Ended

"Captain, we are readying to land on the planet N'Zoth III, you are required to see the president, as well as turning the pirates over to the local authorities. I will meet with you at the hangar bay." Pancras image appeared, and disappeared over the holocam.

Luca shut it down and began readying himself to tell the president the good news, and unfortunately the bad news.

OOC: This post maybe slighlty disoraginzed, I have had few drinks, had the right mind, then started typing :P Please bare with me.


IC:

Luca Anor met Pancra Lacroix in the hangar bay, along with the captured pirates. Czerka Corps small fleet had the captives in a small security group, with tmaybe sixty men as guards. Anyonew who wished the men dead, would probably not succeed.

The president of N'Zoth III was awaiting the groups arrival at the headquarters of the planets capital city N'Hoth.
"Good day Commander Anor...I assume you have what we have wished for?" The president asked n a quizzacal look.

"President Hesall, we must speak with you immedialty." Luca replied.

"Mr. Anor, if you brought them alive, wishing for reason then you are..."the president cuaght Luca's eyes, and stopped, waving his hand towards the councils room.

IC:

President Hesall led the Czerka group to a large building roughly a fifteen minute walk from the docking bay. To the Council's Room which in actuality was the laws office, were they conducted court hearings, and other law related material.

"Commander Anor, I understand you wished to speak to me on the Convoy Pirates topic?" president Hesall asked quizzicaly, as he motioned for the group to disband and sit accordingly at the long rectangular table.

"Ah yes, we have encountered what is to be assumed as the pirate force just outside of the Piraton Asteriods, and had no troubles apprehending the criminals...." Luca paused and continued" however...the man we caught seems not to be the leader, but is the second in command, and he maybe able to lead us to who the commander actually is. We think we should leave him to your council to let him testify those answers."

"We would be happy to testify against him and to figure out the leader of the criminals. When can we hear from him?" the president asked.

"We can have him and his crew here within the next twenty-four hours. We only need a large transport to our ship, and back again with the crew." Luca responded.

"Very well, we have a couple of transports we could lend you for such tasks." The president buzzed on his comlink and gave out orders to someone. "The transports will arrive at your ship in roughly five hours, I will see you later commander." Hesall waved his hand and the Czerka crew was escorted outside into a transport back to there ships.

IC:

The transports dropped Luca, and his men off at there ships.

"Mr. Anor, we will contact you in two hours once the council decides when we will put these men on trial, President Hesall will be most pleased to finally get the lowdown, on were the leader of this notoriuos band of thieves is hiding. We have been trying tofiugre it out for two months now. Thank you sir, and see you in a couple of hours." The head of security said, and saluted Luca, jumped into the transport, and headed back to were they came from.

"Sir, we have to get ourselves presented for this trial against the pirates, and then we can continue our search for there leader. And ultimately get the stuff needed to explore this planet to make our home." Pancra told Luca, before the piar nodded to each other, and made there way to there rooms to begin getting ready.

TWO HOURS LATER IN THE HIGH COUCILS COURTROOM

"Let the hearing of the pirates second in command begin" a judge from the species Twi'lek announced.

"Captain Gresel Dubrask you are being treated for piracy, smuggling, and the deaths of hundreds of civilized, and unarmed men, women, and of even children. We will give you a special offer. In which case you would be granted only two years in jail, instead of the normal seven year difference," the judge paused to get his breath "in this case you will give us the co-ordinates of your leader, and the defenses he possess', and once you get out of jail, will be given a new clean record, and jobs offerings by the council, which'll be thought of later. Do you accept this terms? Or do you wish to spend a longtime in jail?"

The judge peared down from his seat and looked straight into the young Zabraks eyes.

If this kid's not a fool, he would accept this terms....who cares what his leader would say, he'd be dead.

The Zabrak sat there, thinking to himself, about the very enticing offer. He would be going to jail no mattter what...but a new record, jobs, and only two years.

The judge seemed to look like he was about to say something, but the young Zabrak started to speak.
"Sir...I accept these terms, and wish for the forgiveness of the council, and of to you, for all the demeanours, myself and my men have made you people suffer." The Zabrak announced loudly and clearly for all to hear.

"Very well Captain...you will give the Czerka operators the co-ordinates, and defensive operatings of your ex-leader, and be granted an addional two weeks of hearings, before your true sentence. Take them to the war room." The judge demanded, and the officers carried them out immediatly.


The Zabrak, officers, N'Zoth defense teams, and the Czerka operators, walked down the hall and into the war room, were they would get the debreifing of the leader, and his defenses.[/b]
