A system in the outer rim, Vorzyd was the site of two vastly different inhabited planets. That of Vorzyd IV, whose inhabitants at one point valued their work even higher than their lives and that of Vorzyd V, whose inhabitants valued leisure pursuits above all else.

These fundamental differences meant that each planet's evolution was vastly different. Vorzydiaks from Vorzyd IV worked all but one day of the week, and worked until they could no longer function. The planet was comprised of industrial and commercial enterprises and facilities and had one of the highest production rates in the galaxy.

Vorzydiaks and the other species that had come to call Vorzyd V home tried their utmost to do no work at all, with droid labour in the workforce at a staggering ninety percent. This allowed the inhabitants of Vorzyd V to indulge their every whim and still pull down a decent salary. Vorzyd V is littered with casinos and gaming parlours, and is well on its way to becoming an Ecumenopolis like Coruscant.

The Navy, more a token defense force in previous years, utilised several squadrons of antiquated Z-95s, all maintained to the minimum standard require to consistently break orbit. This was one of several key focus groups identified by the Pearson Government as needing attention. As a result, the Navy Creation Act had been inducted into the hall of records on Vorzyd IV.

The act granted permission for the governor to use state funds to expand the existing Naval forces and instigate a training regime for the existing army and this new Naval force. The former was still being costed and investigated, while Prime Minister Pearson was scouring both the historical and current galaxy archives with her military leaders in an effort to bring existing training procedures up to speed.

Natalie sat at her desk, her thoughts straying to her time on Bandomeer. Chiding herself for her inattentiveness, she focused once more on the issues at hand. Before she left she had proposed the Navy Creation Act which has passed with 89% of the vote. The problem was that the Vorzyd economy was not large enough to support the purchase of enough decent military vessels.

She knew that Tiara was looking to mobilise Vita Enterprises so that she would not be competing with Skywalker's Phoenix Corporation; perhaps she would like to relocate to Vorzyd IV rather than mobilise. Or if she still wanted to mobilise perhaps she could use Vorzyd as a harbour. With the materiel that she was looking to purchase to guard the merchant fleet Vorzyd would be suitably defended until she could come up with the funds to properly expand the military.

And it would be good to have her close by.

The last thought entered her head out of seeming nowhere. Natalie would have to consider the implications of falling for James' ex-fiancee. It wasn't like she had never been with girls before, but it was never serious; just a temporary fling.

For now though she needed to work out the logistics of their Army training.

Natalie stood on her private landing platform, watching the Plastic Plan as it threaded its way through the hoverlanes to her location. Standing beside her were four bodyguards and her personal assistant droid. The YT-1300 came in low, swooping below the level of the platform before rapidly gaining altitude and coming in to land, its braking repulsors straining to pull up in time.

The landing ramp descended as the engines were powering down, revealing Tiara in her usual leather attire. Her 'copilot' was trailing behind her, trying in vain to get her to slow down. Tiara approached Natalie and threw her arms around her, giving her a kiss on the cheek and moving to embrace each of her bodyguards in turn.

Natalie grinned at the thought of gorgeous Tiara and her usually gruff security guards.

Tiara sat opposite Natalie in her office. While the possibilites for such an encounter were limited only by the imagination, Tiara had to be content with business talk. She had agreed to let Natalie buy out and nationalise Vita Enterprises in return for a guaranteed salary and a place at the head of Vita Enterprises.

Now it seemed that Natalie wished for her to remain on Vorzyd permanently. She had been offered the position of Naval Chief. As Natalie had just made the offer, she hadn't had time to consider it properly but the more she thought about it the better it sounded. Now was not the time to accept the offer, however.

Natalie's secretary entered the office.

"Prime Minister, there is a William Kobindi here to see you. He says he's expected."
"Send him in," Natalie replied.

Will entered the room with a curious look on his face.

"Take a seat. Now the reason I called you down here is that I want to offer you a job."
"A job? Doing what?"
"What you do best. I want you to supervise our starfighter corps. You would be granted the rank of Admiral in the position of Vice-Chief of Naval Operations if you were to accept."
"Thats ... a very generous offer, Prime Minister. I would need some time to consider it."
"Take all the time you need, Mr Kobindi."

Will turned and left the room without a backward glance.

"Will he accept?" Natalie asked.
"Only if I tell him he can."

Natalie laughed.

"Now you must get back to Bandomeer and consider what I have offered."
"Though it shouldn't take much consideration."
"That much is up to you," Natalie said with a smile. She stood and moved around the desk to embrace Tiara. They held each other for a long while before breaking apart slightly. Tiara leaned in and kissed Natalie lightly on the lips before turning and leaving.

She returned to the hover-platform and took off in the Plastic Plan, heading for the rendevous with her new ships before returning to Bandomeer.

For the second time in a week, Natalie stood waiting as Tiara entered the atmosphere and came in to land on her private platform. She had another platform placed here from storage so that her YT-1200, the Omnipotent Superweapon also had a berth. This time Natalie had brought Siefer with her, as the little R2 unit had seemed to get along with Tiara's co-pilot quite well.

Natalie was surprised to see Will Kobindi walk down the landing ramp beside Tiara. She had expected him to fly his Firespray here. Then she realised that the Enigma Squadron's ships had been supplied by the BSF and were still their property. Natalie wondered what Tiara had replaced their ships with.

From the landing pad, the trio hastened to Natalie's office. There they worked out the deployment of the first fleet.

Tiara and Natalie were sitting in Tiara's office discussing the mission to Skor II.

"I just recieved a status report from the Daedalus. They are planetside and meeting with the King," said Tiara.
"Good. What is the status of the Anoat base?"
"They are insystem and are waiting for air scrubbers to make the area habitable, but for now the planet's orbit belongs to us."

"Blast it!" Tiara said loudly.
"What the hell has gotten into you? Why should we not just deliver the ship?"
"The Black Hand are the ones that attacked us on Bandomeer."
"How do you know that? They all died."
"I recognised the symbol. James didn't know a lot about them except that they were pissed at his father for..." Tiara trailed off.
"What is it?"
"James' dad! Thats where he got the credits from. Alert CorSec. Tell them to find Salan Vita! In the meantime deliver the ship but put a tracing device on it."
"Ti, relax. We'll get him."

Natalie took the turbolift to the bridge of the Strength of Vita, Tiara's flagship. As she stepped out, all of the bridge crew snapped to attention. Natalie waved her hand impatiently.

"Where is Fleet Admiral Tranada?"
"Try the barracks," the navigator suggested.

Natalie turned on her heel and left. Ever since Salan Vita's body had been found she had been bottling up her emotions. She found the barracks quickly and entered. Sure enough, Tiara was in there and facing off on the training mats with a burly intelligence agent. As Natalie watched the agent was on his back in less than ten seconds. She chose that moment to announce her presence.

"Fleet Admiral Tranada, I have a task for you."
"Sure, just let me take a shower."

Natalie followed Tiara towards the showers. The intelligence agent exited through the front door, having not exerted himself enough to break a sweat.

"Care to join me?" Tiara said with a sly smile as she stripped off her jumpsuit.
"No thanks; I have work to do. I want you to go to Anoat."
"Will's at Anoat," replied Tiara, turning on the water.
"Yes, and the rest of the galaxy knows it too. Anoat was supposed to be a secret base, but it can function as a drop off point for materiel. I want you to go to Ione."
"Never heard of it."
"Its a spaceport planet near the Ivax nebula in the Anoat sector."
"And why am I going there?"
"Because its also at a crossroads that is the only known entry point to the mining worlds in the Ivax nebula."
"Is this spaceport going to care that we are taking over the system that its in?"
"Of course not; since the spaceport, along with your lone unarmed Lancer frigate is going to be attacked by an enemy they can't see. You are going to call for reinforcements and save the day. After that you are going to confront the administrators of the spaceport and be very angry that your unarmed frigate was attacked by pirates. You are going to tell them that you will be leaving a garrison and a Golan station to ensure that it doesn't happen again."
"Are they allowed to say no?"
"Of course not."
"Who will be piloting the Blade?"
"You will be, of course," Natalie replied with a wink.

"There is a Hannibal King here to see you, Prime Minister," said Natalie's secretary through the intercom.
"Send him in," Natalie replied and sat back, wondering. Why would King be coming to see her. Maybe he had taken issue with her decision to transfer his squadron to intelligence. The smile on his face as he walked in proved right away that she was wrong in this instance.
"Frost has landed on Praesitlyn. We have security holos of him heading for the StarTek industries headquarters."
"I wonder what the hell he wants with StarTek. Maybe he's trying to sell the design?"
King looked at her with this annoyingly superior look that told he he knew exactly why the Black Hand agent was on Praesitlyn.
"You're not gonna make me beg are you?"
King's superior look got bigger.
"Need I remind you that I sign your paychecks."
"Apparently Ms Stark hasn't always been an upstanding corporate tightwad. There is an old Hutt bounty on her head. Frost went to Nar Shadda from Corellia so we checked the bounty listings for a mention of her name once he got to StarTek."
"Does Fleet Admiral Tranada know?"
"Not yet. She hasn't yet arrived at Da Soocha V."
"Okay. I will get the chief navigator to tell her when she checks in. In the meantime I want you squadron to go to Praesitlyn. Ms Stark could be in trouble."
"As you wish, highness."
"Don't push me, King."

Natalie stood, dressed as a civilian, waiting for a particular passenger to embark from the transport in the terminal in front of her. She did not know how it would go; she had not seen this man in years and they had not separated on good terms. She watched as her mark exited the transport and turned around, looking for her. Once he spotted her he walked over.

"Speak, Pearson and make me forget what I want to do right now," the man said gruffly.
"If you move to strike me the snipers posted all around the spaceport will have no choice but to stop you. I am a planetary leader now and certain precautions must be taken."
"You sold us out!"
"I did not. But I did not call you to discuss the past."
"Mouse died in that raid. The Imps killed her."
Natalie tensed, "I told you I had nothing to do with that."
"Nerfshit! You were their spy. The Imps put you inside our operation."
"I wasn't working for the Imperials! I was working for ..." Natalie trailed off, before continuing quietly, "I was working for Jabba the Hutt."
"The Hutts?! Oh well that makes it all better. Our employer put a spy inside our operation. Great."
"It was either that or get sold into slavery, Myron. I was twenty-one years old. I needed the money."
"I've seen your record. You went to some rich shit private school on Coruscant."

Natalie turned away, painful memories beginning to surface.

"What did they do to you?" muttered Myron, almost caring.
"It doesn't matter now. He is gone," replied Natalie, almost to herself.
"Who's gone? What are you talking about?"
"I said it doesn't matter," she repeated, her voice stronger, "are you interested in why I called you or not?"
"Sure fine."

A second man joined them a moment later, returning what looked like a blaster to the inside of his jacket.

"Natalie Pearson, this is Evan Drunkhorse."
"Pleased to meet you," said Natalie, a diplomat's smile fixed firmly upon her face."

Natalie lead the two to the comm centre and played the message for them.

"Oh so this is your cruel and unusual punishment? Ferrying around a couple of university brats? C'mon; what's the real job?"
"That's it. And you obviously weren't paying attention. Your job is to find a planet that isn't where it's supposed to be. Which means you'll have all sorts of adventures."
"In an unarmed civilian freighter."
"That's right. Why? Have your piloting skills suffered with age?"
"Ha ha, very funny. Alright, I'll do it. Whats the paycheck?"
"There isn't one."
"Now I know you're punishing me."
"Perhaps I should explain. Your aren't getting paid; but you aren't paying for anything either."
"So its all expenses paid, right?"
"That's right?"
"So if I were to go out and get a high class prostitute..."
"Then my government still wouldn't pay because you'd kill yourself before you touched her."
"Okay so you haven't lost your quick wit; have you lost your piloting skills? Or your ship?"
"I have lost niether."
"That's good at least. So why aren't we taking that?"
"Because you're not flying my ship, ever. We have been over this already."
"But you put me in charge of one of your missions."
"It isn't my mission. An antrhopologist appealed to the Oligarchy for funds to pursue this mystery planet. I went one better and gave her a ship and a pilot."
"Fair enough. So I get to choose the crew?"
"No, you get to choose the co-pilot only. She will choose the rest of the crew members."
"When do we leave?"
"As soon as you are ready."

Natalie was standing in front of the cheif navigator, beside herself with anger.

"What do you mean she hasn't reported in."
"I have recieved confirmation and transponder codes for all of the Second fleet minus the Ivax, the Pringle and the entire Stampede Battle Group. It appears that these ships are still at Csilla," replied the Chief Navigator.
"Why did the rest of the fleet leave anyway?!" Natalie demanded.
"It is unknown at this time, ma'am. The Ivax is not responding to our hails."
"Damn it, Tiara where the hell are you?!" Natalie said loudly at the console in front of her.

Tiara snuck along a narrow corridor towards the starship impound. Strickly speaking her ship was the property of the state, but she was a convict now and cared little for this detail. Her P-19, a relic of a mission to Praesitlyn, was clipped to her military vest. The enforcer pistol that had belonged to James was in its holster on her right hip and there were several spare clips of ammo as well as a combat knife and two other blades hidden on her person.

She was not willing to sacrifice her place with Vita Enterprises in order to retrieve her ship however she was completely confident in her ability to sneak aboard the ship and leave before anybody could stop her. There were two guards posted at the only public entrance to the facility, but Tiara knew of another entrance used by intelligence personnel when they needed to arrive somewhere incognito using an impounded ship. She moved away from the entrance and walked around the perimeter until she reached the access point.

Accessing her datapad, she selected an alias belonging to a fallen comrade who's information in the Intelligence database had been updated to include Tiara's vital statistics. As the Director of Intelligence, she had been responsible for administrating the database and had easily made the necessary changes. She entered the access code and placed her palm on the reader. It shimmered and read a name that was not hers before an access hatch slid open in the wall ahead.

Crawling through the vent, she popped up at various intervals to get her bearings until she finally arrived at the Plan. She used her datapad to send the remote entry command and disable the security countermeasures. Caesar was waiting for her at the top of the landing ramp.

"Mistress Tranada, they appear to have forgotten me in their rush to get you to a prison. I have been here for two point five standard weeks."
"Yeah, I know. Are you ready to get out of here?"
"Yes mistress Tranada."
"Good, we're gonna cold start the engines; there's not enough time for a full warm-up."
"Are you sure, mistress, cold starting an engine can have..."
"Begin the sequence Caesar."
"Yes mistress, giving the droid equivalent of a gulp."

The engines moaned and complained, but Tiara managed to get free of the facility before the automated defences could lock on and disable her ship. She exited the atmosphere and flew under sublight to the neighbouring world of Vorzyd IV. Her timing couldn't have been more perfect. The primary patrols had just been recalled and their replacements had not yet reached her position. It was a simple task of turning off her transponder and landing at Vita Enterprises.
