On board Redemption, Captain Datari gave Sheatat, F0X-Y, and Jensen Tal a new mission: go to Kril’dor and determine how willing the tibanna gas mining facility there would be to do business with the New Republic. It seemed like a simple enough mission, but Kril’dor was on the edge of Imperial Remnant space.
Once there, they got the lay of the land and met with Trinity Station administrator, Devin Cayo. He was willing to hear the New Republic out, but was concerned due to the station’s proximity to the Remnant. He harbored no loyalty to the Imperials, but he didn’t want to bring even one star destroyer down upon the station.
The group spoke to several people on the station and managed to access docking records. They hoped to gain an understanding of exactly which Imperial ships frequented the station and how often they visited. F0X-Y spent the evening collating and analyzing the data they recovered.
The next morning, station security arrived at the quarters Bahli, Jensen, and Sheatat shared for the night to arrest Bahli. Administrator Cayo had been murdered some time in the night; his arms had been ripped from their sockets and wookiee fur was found at the scene of the crime.
Not wanting to get into a shooting fight with the station’s security personally, the group cooperated as the station constable, Donlan began his investigation and locked down Trinity Station. Meanwhile, the group started their own investigation. After convincing the station’s med tech to let them examine the adminstrator’s corpse, they found evidence that there was a struggle and tissue under his fingernails did not belong to any wookiee, let alone Bahli. They also finagled access to the station security logs and found video footage from a cleaning droid showing a trandoshan hanging around the admin offices after hours.
The evidence was enough to convince Constable Donlan to release Bahli and they decided to speak to the only trandoshan on the station, a mercenary called Trassk. The mercenary was not inclined to be cooperative, but after a brief fight, he decided life was more important than taking his secrets to the grave. He told them he’d been working for an Imperial agent who communicated only through dead drops. The assassination of Devin Cayo was just business.
While Constable Donlan took Trassk into custody, the group worked on setting up another dead drop for the agent. They set the agent up for an ambush in a deserted part of the station, but were unable to capture him alive. Regardless, Trinity Station’s new administrator, Terra Cayo was more than happy to pledge to do business with the New Republic exclusively, especially if they could provide protection from the nearby Remnant.
With that settled, the group checked in with Captain Datari. He informed them they were being released from their duties with Redemption and they were to rendezvous with Commander Gant in New Eol Sha on Dantooine in one month. With that much time on their hands, they agreed to help Dua Mar track down a bounty on Mygeeto, a neighboring system of Dantooine and after that, they’d spend some time investigating old Jedi ruins on Dantooine to try to find some solutions for Jensen Tal’s broken holocron.
They boarded Nightlance, bid farewell to Trinity Station and headed for Mygeeto…
Part of the reason I haven’t been keeping up with updates is that I can no longer access the classic editor in WordPress for some reason, and I find the Gutenburg block editor about as pleasant to use as a self-directed tooth extraction. Everything I try to do in it fights me and I find using it extraordinarily frustrating, so much so, that doing something like this, for which I do not get paid, feels utterly pointless because I have better things to do than fight WordPress.
