‘Star Wars:Republic Commandos – Hard Contact’ – Chapter 3 (Part 2)

It’s Wednesday, and it’s halfway through the week and I started giving final exams today.  Some classes did a great job working on the exams silently.  Other classes didn’t do so well in taking the exam.  It seems like a far flung concept for some of these students to sit in a classroom and remain quiet and take an exam.  I don’t know what has changed since my generation went through school, but we would never have goofed off through ANY final exam, even one for music.  So, it really ended up being a long day for me.  I got done giving finals and then worked on a ton of paperwork at school.  When I got done, Heather had texted me to let me know she had shown up with the car.  She took me to SMASH rehearsal and then went and got weights for Austin’s Pinewood Derby car in Vestal.  We had a very successful and rewarding practice and Jim gave me a ride home.  When I got home, Heather had arrived home and told me about her night.  She had taken Tara to Girl Scouts at a local troop she found that Tara could join.  She dropped Tara with Ruth off and came home till they were done that night.  We had a discussion about our nights as we ate dinner together.  She updated me about the product from Linksys.  Linksys refused to let us return the product directly to them because I forgot to write down my reference number, so she talked her uncle into letting us send it back to him.  When we got done, she went and picked the girls up while Austin and I went downstairs and worked on his Pinewood Derby Car.  Heather picked up the girls and stopped at “Coldstone Creamery” and we had a nice treat downstairs while we watched “American Idol”.

Okay, time to talk about Karen Traviss’ “Star Wars Republic Commandos – Hard Contact’, Chapter 3 Part 2…..

Chapter 3 (Part 2):  Docking Bay D-76, Ord Mantell – The clones were walking towards a rusted out, old Nar Shaddaa utility crop sprayer when Fi mentioned that they don’t make them like that anymore.  Niner replied saying that the Hutt’s wouldn’t even drive this piece of rust, but it will at least get them planet side without drawing attention.  Jusik wondered if they needed him on this mission.  Niner said they can’t grow Jedi.  Niner says there’s no one more prepared, even with it being their first mission, they’re not nervous.  He told him not to worry because of the six P’s, Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance.  Padawan Bardan Jusik reminded him that this was reality, but Niner didn’t have the guts to tell him that some of their training was much more realistic than this reality.  Live rounds, sniper training, stormed buildings, and field tracheotomies, these were all things that clones were trained to handle.  Many died just in training.  The Narsh vessel had been prepped with stirups and stealth sheeting to repulse probes or scans.  Things were going to be tight with four men and their weapons…..
