The Rodian crime lord Enkido sat at his desk, observing the display
that showed the readout of the various security cameras. His
business had expanded greatly in the days since the Empire arrived,
and he looked forward to another profitable shipment of illegal
cargo. He was concerned that the Black Sun might soon take notice of
his little operation, but for now that was the last thing on his
mind. He had to get the latest shipment of spice to the nearby
Corellian sector, and would gladly pay the premium to any smuggler
daring enough to get past the Imperial blockade.
Zek Correson rerouted his directional course towards Tatoonie to
divert back to Breental. Tonight, the local independent smuggler
advanced forward to the thriving planet where he will expect to meet
this Enkido individual. Unsure exactly what will become of the
cargo, but it'll might end up a being a tricky one. Zek had all the
faith in the world to finish jobs closely related to this one.
Receive his pay, and then get some things done besides meddling
around old hardware to upgrade his Corellian Engineering Corporation YT-1300 Transport.
Zek launched the sequence of the landing petals. Allowing them to
connect at the marble cement that engrossed the platform. The
smuggler picked himself up to make his exit out of the Corellian
freighter. Outside, those authentic hazel pupils glance at a unknown
individual. Is not for certain if this were to become of the Rodian
named Enkido, "I'm here for the cargo."
The security droid that kept watch on the East landing platform
stared at the smuggle for a moment before the durasteel doors to the
estate swung upward. The diminutive form of the crime lord Enkido
emerged from behind the doors and he slowly walked towards the
smuggler. He motioned with his left hand towards a moderate sized
shipping container before addressing the Human, "This container here
must go to Duros. In Jivv Space City there's a rather rundown bar on
the outskirts of town in the Northeast. Look for a Duros named
Ikthirt. He will take possession of the cargo. The price is 5000
credits. You'll have to get past the Imperial patrols, but they're
not looking for something like this so you should be fine."
Zek responded firmly to the Rodian's request of delivery and
transportation, "I'll have there in no time." The name Ikthirt who's
a Duros in the city of Jivv Sapce City in Duros. He'll never forget
such information as he guided the cargo to be set beneath the floors
of his YT-1300 spacecraft.
Correson hit the control switches to seal the landing platform. A
few other switches were hit to only thrust the powerful Corellian
engines stationed to the interior and behind the metallic plate
covering mechanical parts of his freighter. Took off into
extraordinary flight as he awaited patiently for his entrance into
space. Correson looked aimlessly at a visual image of his past love
Marian. He always did ever since he had taken flight out of Corellia
and said goodbye.
Within then the time of his departure, the ship glided heavenly
right into the entrance of space. Glancing as he spotted the
magnificent stars and extraordinary planets that he's been watching
for centuries. Zek accordingly did enjoy lurking into the deepness
of space where he'll one day reside somewhere within himself.
Meanwhile, he set the controls on the autopilot as he lifted those
limbs to adjust on the chair beside him. No companion, and no
trustee friend. Zek had to find a companion to maintain security and
alert the Captain. Finally, something valuable than silk to
transport by a pack of Twi'leks.
A pair of Sienar Fleet System TIE/ln starfighters picked up the
YT-1300 on their sensors, and immediately changed course to
intercept the vessel. The lead pilot in the flight, Lieutenant Trolg,
targeted the YT-1300 and identified it as the Vendetta, based
on her IFF signature. He then activated his comlink to signal the
craft, "Transport, this is the Imperial Navy ... please identify.
"Shit!" thought the rogue pilot as he engaged quickly to reply to
the intercept the channelink, and reply, "Freighter Vendetta,
The Imperial pilot decelerated his starfighter as he approached the
freighter. His craft begin to scan the YT-1300 for illegal cargo,
specifically weaponry, before speaking over the comlink once again,
"What is your cargo and destination. Over?"
"Container is carrying a cargo of silk to the Duro system," Zek
responded as he kept his hopes up to ensure this sweet baby gets him
passed these hostile TIEs. Would hate to find meaningful ways to outrun
the TIEs or else he will be doomed.
"A lot of silk shipments lately," Lieutenant Trolg thought to
himself. He figured something was up with this shipment, but his
orders were only to scan of weaponry. He sighed before responding
over the comlink, "Get on with it then. Over and out."
"Yes, sir," said the Smuggler till he proceeded as directed from the
trumpet-eared Rodian. His destination is not really that far due to
being a quick jump. He hoped he will get a good hazard pay for this
or else he will have to have a chat with him. He does not do free
The smuggler continued his own route near by the Corellian system.
His route made a dash past the atmosphere of the planet of Duro.
Understood it was heavily populated by Duros. Cannot say he is not
fond of them, but reliable at times. Zek proceeded until he swept
above the surface of its planetary existence. Continuing on till he
spotted the city the Rodian said to be Jivv Space City. Relocated
himself to find a suitable landing platform to descend on to.
Assembles the landing petals that attached over to the platform with
ease. Correson shut off the main power line before making himself
depart the ship by exiting out the staircase. Descended when he
realized it was a dive bar he has to get to. Kept that generic
pistol accustomed on to the holster clad on the pant thigh.
Readjusted the olive green jacket over that upper form that relieved
the chillness. Made his way into the bar as he looked for a Duro
named Ikthirt. Saw what he was looking for, and continued his
journey before standing in front of him. "Are you Ikthirt?" he asked
Ikthirt looked up from his Corellian ale at the man standing in
front of him. He looked him over casually, sizing him up and taking
note of the weaponry. "Sit down," he said calmly as he adjusted his
position at the table.
Zek responded firmly to the command. Settled down as he looked about
to ensure everyone else stuck to their own business. Afterwards, his
head diverted his attention back at the Duro, "I got your cargo.
It's in the hanger."
"Were you followed?" Ikthirt asked nervously, leaning forward across
the table to prevent the others in the bar from overhearing their
"Was intercepted from a couple of TIEs, but I kept my radar on
special watch. I wasn't followed. I promise you that," Zek said in a
husky tone. The smuggler meant every word. Probably a mention of the
TIEs will increase a suspicious to the Duro, but he will guarantee
everything is safe.
"Very well," Ikthirt said in a reassured voice, "Take me the
Zek nodded. He stood up as he decided to venture off the dive bar
towards the hangar bay where he will ensure the cargo is perfectly
safe. He knew that he had to keep his guard up incase this was a
turn over of not getting paid and receive death.
The pair entered the hanger bay as Zek journeys off into the YT-1300
cargo ship to retrieve the transportation supply the Rodian from
Breental requested to bring here. Brought it out with a function of
a control, "Here ya go. Everything's there."
Ikthirt looked at the cargo container for a moment before dropping
to one knee next to it. He pressed his thumb down on the lock
mechanism, opening the container. He looked inside to verify the
contents. With a smile, he resealed the container and rose to his
feet once again. "Excellent," he said enthusiastically, "Everything
is as it should be."
Zek knew he will receive his five thousand credits, but it will take
awhile till he find out where to get a good piece of weaponry. The
generic pistol he assembled is not worthwhile. Decided to see if he
can reach an arms dealer to either trade or buy a new one. He left
to the YT-1300 freighter before launching controls again to blast
his way towards Tatoonie to see what was going on there.
