‘Star Wars: Outbound Flight’ – Chapter 19 (Part 2)

Tuesday.  I was looking forward to a nice relaxing day today and very little work to be done tonight.  It was a usual morning and of course Tara was up to her usual antics this morning about not wanting to eat breakfast and making new fashion statements.  We all headed out the door at the same time and I went to work and the kids went to school.

The school day was typical and it was exactly what I expected out of my school day today.  The band teacher at my school asked me to play trumpet for the stage band, and tuba for the concert band for the Christmas Concert this year, which of course I said yes to, because I’m always looking for an excuse to play an instrument.

This really wasn’t that eventful of a day.  I got home, ate dinner with the family and retreated with Heather to the basement and we watched our usual Tuesday night line up of T.V. shows while I blogged and she continued to work on sewing jackets for the seamstress she works for.  Not much today.  Sorry folks!
Okay, so let’s fill the void and talk about Part 2 of Chapter 19 of “Star Wars:  Outbound Flight” by Timothy Zahn…..


Chapter 19 (Part 2):  Ar’alani pointed out that the tribunal would have to review this occurence and the previous one against the Vagaari.  Car’das found this the time, and asked when he and his colleagues could collect their treasure so they could be on their way.  Ar’alani was shocked that they would be in such a hurry and that’s when Car’das pointed out that this was a side trip for him as a merchant.  He then said that the treasure that Qennto asked for will help to defray any costs of late fees they may incur.  Thrass informs him that he should’ve thought of that before getting involved and said the decision about the treasure would have to come after the tribunal’s decision, as it may strip Thrawn of any arguements.  Car’das asked how long it will be till the hearing takes place and Thrass summed it up into weeks maybe even months.  Car’das asked about Thrawn’s status until then and Ar’alani said she’ll be supervising him at Thrass’ request.   Car’das asked Thrass if he did this to his own brother as the skin on the back of his neck began to crawl knowing that Thrawn was right, yet again.  Ar’alani then spoke and said that she and Thrass agree that they need to protect Thrawn from his own excess of ability, and Car’das retorted saying that was a new one.  Ar’alani said he’s a good tactician, but that he’ll go too far without some restraint.  Car’das pointed out that this leaves the Vagaari to rob and plunder the galaxy.  Ar’alani said the lives of other beings are not their concern, for good or for bad.  Car’das told them to all trust Thrawn as he believes that the stronger the Vagaari become with alien technology, the hard they will be to stop in the future.  Thrass said the future will be what it is and then turned to a viewport and asked Car’das to describe the battle for him…..
