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

Thursday.  Final exam testing with most of my students is complete.  It was a usual day at work.  We did find out today that a former school board member that I knew recently died.  It’s a shame as the gentleman was a supporter of the arts, including music.  I know that he will be fondly remembered by everyone in the school district.  I got done with the school day and came home and had a usual Thursday night with the family.  I continued to work on the car with Austin and It’s going to be tight trying to get it ready for Saturday, but I have confidence that I can get it done.  My parents are coming this weekend just to visit.  It will be nice to have them here, but our house looks like a cyclone hit and we just won’t have time to clean it all up.  I hope my mom can be forgiving about all of that.  Anyway, it wasn’t a bad day, so let’s move right on to talking about Part 3 of Chapter 3 of “Star Wars:Republic Commandos – Hard Contact” by Karen Traviss…..

Chapter 3 (Part 3):  At Atin’s request, there were two Trandoshan LJ-50 concussion rifles.  Darman asked if he had something for that type of technology and he said it’s better than having and E-Web equipped with them.  Niner began to wonder if their clone trainer was simply miserable as it came acrossed in this unit.  Fi lifted up a Geononian force pike and said it was a souvenir that wasn’t worth wasting.  Atin said he didn’t need any souvenirs of Geonosis as the scar on his face would be a permanent one.  Niner ceased the chatter and pondered about whether Atin would ever act like one of the squad.  As they looked into the cockpit, an R5 droid was at the controls having the ship fueled for take-off.  Niner synchronized the flight pattern and E.T.A. with his own.  Jusik leaned into the cockpit.  He told them to go to comm silence as soon as they take-off.  He also tells them the “Majestic” will be less than a parsec from the planet for extraction.  Jusik said he hoped to debrief them when they get back.  Jusik left as Darman hopped in and closed the rusty dor as chips fell off of it was it locked.  Niner told himself that it only had to land.  They all looked at the intel that had them landing thirty clicks north of a town called Imbraani.  Darman said that it’s the “captured alive” part that makes this mission difficult.  Niner closed his eyes and visualized the flight path one last time.  That’s when Niner knew that Jusik meant the debriefing comment as more of a, “good luck”!…..
