‘Star Wars: Outbound Flight’ – Chapter 14 (Part 4)

Okay, last day of “Facts” and then tomorrow I can get back to my old writing style.  I can’t wait to be able to write like normal and not have to filter what I’m saying.  I’m also on edge about Dragon Con.  Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!!  It should be pretty awesome!  Okay, here are the facts of today:


Fact:  It rained most of the night, but stopped by this morning.

Fact:  We got up early and had a breakfast together.

Fact:  We struck camp and all of our tents were wet when we took them down.

Fact:  We left camp fairly early and headed home.

Fact:  We got home in plenty of time to relax and enjoy the evening.

Fact:  It was a fun weekend, but now I’m exhausted.


Okay, let’s talk about Part 4 of Chapter 14 of “Star Wars:  Outbound Flight” by Timothy Zahn…..

Chapter 14 (Part 4):  C’Boath then said change can always be disconcerting, but that Outbound Flight is one giant experiment and if they are successful, could change the galaxy and the Jedi Order.  Obi-Wan asked what happens if they don’t succeed and C’Baoth says the experiment fails, but then insists they won’t.  Kenobi looked at Ma’Ning and niether were very happy.  But, they both know that Jedi history is all about experimentation and even failure.  Ma’Ning agrees to give it a try, but warns C’Baoth to move carefully.  C’Baoth then made Jedi Jinzler in charge of getting together the Jedi training center, and warned them all to talk to him first before they move any of his Jedi from their pre-described duties.  He looked at Kenobi and said they would continue their tour.  As they walked, Kenobi aksed what Jedi duties they were expected to perform.  C’Baoth said exactly as they are currently doing, walking around the ship and helping where they can, training the Jedi, and maintaining order.  Kenobi said there didn’t seem to be any disputes onboard this vessel, but C’Baoth said this many people will eventually create friction with each other.  He expects that they will have to enforce the “Rules of Conduct”.  Kenobi said he assumed that these problems would be taken care of by Captain Pakmillu and C’Baoth said he’ll be too busy running the ship.  Kenobi reminded C’Baoth that they were to act as advisors as Jedi are not meant to rule over anyone.  C’Baoth snapped back saying they are not ruling over anyone and Kenobi challenged him by saying they were since they were taking over Pakmillu’s duties.  Then C’Baoth retorted using an example of the situation on Barlok.  Kenobi hesitated, but Anakin jumped in saying that the Jedi are supposed ot have wisdom beyond the commoner.  Obi-Wan said that wisdom sometimes means knowing what to stand by and let others resolve their differences.  C’Baoth said this wisdom comes from a better knowledge of The Force and then tries to deflect the discussion back to the tour of the ship……
