Ilister strode into the overwhelming building. He bags, the only civilian thing about her as she wore her pristine white dress outfit. Campaign badges and medals covered most of her chest. Her hair was curled into a bun, behind her head allowing her hat to fit.

Random people walked about the area in front of her. She was already lost, it had been too long since she had to report in. Pulling both bags further back into her grip she moved foward. A help desk, she almost felt like a civilian having to ask for directions. Ironic, you can be taught to find direction in the wild and on alien planets but you can't be taught how to find your way around a strange building.

As she approached she could feel people looking at her, wondering why only a Major had acquired so much medals and badges. She probally could compete with even Admiral Ackbar with the amount of awards they owned.

"Excuse me." Ilister said in the most eased voice she could. "Could you direct me towards the Army Deployment Department?"

The secretary glanced up and pointed towards her left, "Go left, take a sharp right and go down about 4 doors." she said, obviously having bigger concerns.

"Thank You." Ilister said as she moved away from the woman and the desk.
-------------------------------------------------------------
She now sat down in front of a sargeant. She had received a crisp salute, teh first step to the old life. He had been typing for about a minute until he looked up. "Alright, Major Elip, you will be stationed on Kamino. Outer rim, sounds fun. Your transport will leave in 8 hours."

Ilister scolled as she stood up. Great, a giant water ball with long neck freaks. She picked up her bags and moved out of the small office. For once she wanted to be a half-way normal planet, or hell be attacking one. Soon she was back outside as she flagged down a taxi and went to public transport.

Brandon looked up at the massive building that was said to be the Denon Military Headquarters. He straightened his tie, checked his hair one last time and strode up the steps towards the doors. They whirred open, leaving him standing on the threshold wondering where the hell in this building he was supposed to go.

He scanned the room and quickly found the reception desk. Brandon wondered why it was that regardless of the location; receptionists were leggy females with a permanent look of boredom on their faces. Smirking to himself at the thought, he approached the desk.

"Hi, I'm Brandon Vita..." he trailed off. How would he describe his situation? I just defected from the Empire and have been in prison for a couple of months. Can you tell me how I get a job?
"I'm looking for an assignment, can you point me in the right direction?"
"I will get someone for you, Mr Vita. Please have a seat."



So, I'm not sure who handles personnel and such so if anyone wants to volunteer that information...

Would probably be High Admiral Ackbar if you are looking for an IC conversation, but I don't think he has posted for a while on the new board... Solo would be officially in charge overall anyways (as CiC), but stuck on Coruscant/Corellia. I think that would leave Nevin and me as existing admirals... (but I'm not in charge of personnel, so Nevin?)

Nevin's on Ord Mantell right now on a mission. So, if you would like to handle it, go for it. Just be sure to shoot us a PM to approve it. :)

After several seconds had paused, the receptionist looked up and saw a lieutenant commander approaching. After careful observation, she stood up, and gestured for him to follow her to a private location.

"That fellow over there," she said as she pointed at Brandon, "is Brandon Vita. He supposedly just defected from the Empire and is looking for a new job."

After a moment of consideration, the commander nodded and replied, "I'll handle this."

Turning around, he strode over to Brandon, and announced, "I'm Lt. Commander Tom Mitheranda. Mr. Vita, if you will follow me please?"

Without waiting for a reply, Tom backtracked and walked away, deeper into the complex. After a few minutes of walking and several security checks, he paused before a room labelled "Admiral Williams", adjusted his uniform, and than pushed the door open.

"Sir, I got a Mr. Vita for you. Supposedly he wants a job assignment."

"Show him in please," came the response.


Alright than... Got nothing else to RP anyways.

Every minute Brandon sat here it struck him how different the Alliance was from the Empire. Back in Imperial Intelligence he would never have shown a subordinate his back like that. It wasn't a respect thing, or a morale booster. Showing a subordinate your back was like inviting him to stick a vibroblade in it. He got up and followed quickly, subconsciously straightening his jacket and pants and hoping his nervousness wasn't too apparent.

There were security checkpoints at regular intervals, but not regular enough for Brandon to be able to spot a pattern. The Lieutenant Commander showed his ID and was waved through right away at each, but Brandon had to endure a weapons search at every one. Not that he minded. Quite the opposite in fact. It was a comfort to know that the Alliance didn't skimp on their Security protocols.

After a few minutes of silent walking, they arrived at a door; Admiral Jack Williams on a small plaque at the side. His escort pushed open the door and entered. Brandon elected to wait outside, although not knowing whether or not this was the right thing to do.

"Mr Vita, please come in," said his escort, extending his hand, "and good luck."
"Thank you," replied Brandon, taking his hand in a firm handshake.
Here goes nothing, he thought to himself and entered the Admiral's Office.

As Brandon walked in, Jack stood up from behind his desk. He quickly scanned the man from head to toe, keeping his face a neutral mask, concealing his thoughts. After a nod that he knew Brandon would see, he extended his hand and said, "Welcome Mr. Vita! I'm Admiral Williams, former commander of the Alliance Fifth Fleet, and currently detailed to shore duty. So, I heard that you were interested in applying for a position in the Alliance? Perhaps you could tell me what field you want to join? Intelligence? Fleet command?"

After Brandon was seated, the Admiral stared at him for a few moments, just long enough for Brandon to wonder if he was a reader or something. Thankfully the man's next words dispelled any notion of this, as the nobody would put a reader on shore duty. Mercifully his question was easier to field.

"Well my particular area of expertise would not be of much use to your intelligence departments, and I had Fleet Command in mind from the start, so yes Fleet Command is where I would like to be employed."

"I would like to be placed in charge of an offensive fleet if that is possible?" replied Brandon.

Jack nodded at the man, and took out a key to unlock one of his cabinets. He took out a file, and quickly scanned through it; after a moment of hesitation, he ruefully shook his head and stood up.

"Excuse me for a second," Jack muttered while he strode toward the doorway; within a second, he was gone.

-2 Minutes Later-

Walking in, Jack smiled broadly, and gestured for Brandon to stand up and then offered his hand.

"Congratulations! You are now officially a Commodore in charge of a home fleet. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them. If not, a captain will be along shortly to give you what you need.:


Sorry about shortness, pressed for time.

Brandon watched as the man crossed the room to take a look in a file from one of the cabinets. Personnel and materiel lists perhaps? After a moment or two he shook his head left the room, excusing himself for a moment. Brandon sat, counting off the seconds in his head while he looked around the room.

It was a pretty basic office considering the man was an Admiral. Filing cabinets covered the walls behind the large wooden desk.

Exactly one hundred and twenty-eight seconds later the Admiral entered the room, his face more promising than when he had left two minutes and eight seconds previously. He gestured for Brandon to stand up, a request that was instantly follow. The two shook hands.

"Congratulations! You are now officially a Commodore in charge of a home fleet. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them. If not, a captain will be along shortly to give you what you need."

Brandon nodded, a broad grin spreading across his face. Commodore Vita. It was a great start for an ex-imperial, especially with his former occupation.

"Thank you Admiral," he said, saluting, "shall I wait for the Captain outside?"


Thanks. Heh everytime I see Commodore written I think of Pirates of the Carribean :P

As Jack was formulating a response to this new question, he heard a knock on his door. "Come in," he loudly stated. Low and behold, it was the very captain that this new commodore had mentioned. Turning around to face the new arrival, he announced, "Captain Sina, meet Commodore Vita, one of our new commanders of our navy. Please show him around the building as well as getting him the necessary documents and materials."

As the Captain saluted Vita, Jack told Brandon, "Well, Commodore, good luck. If you need any help, don't hesitate to come back." With that, Jack escorted Brandon and the captain to the door and waved them through.

Before the Admiral could respond, there came a knock at the door. The Admiral invited the person in. Brandon noticed the insignia of captain on the person's uniform. Perhaps this was the captain who was supposed to show him around.

"Captain Sina, meet Commodore Vita, one of our new commanders of our navy. Please show him around the building as well as getting him the necessary documents and materials."

The Captain saluted to Brandon, who returned the gesture.

"Well, Commodore, good luck. If you need any help, don't hesitate to come back."

Brandon followed the captain out the door, leaving the Admiral to his work.

"So where to first?" Brandon asked.

A few hours after his meeting with the Admiral, Brandon had finished being inducted formally into the Alliance. His oath was sworn and his fleet awaited him in space. Descending the steps of the Military HQ, he took a hovercar to the spaceport.

Captain Sina got out first and escorted Brandon into the spaceport.

"This is your shuttle, Sir. It will take you to the fleet."
"Thank you, Captain."

The Captain saluted and left as soon as Brandon return it. He boarded the shuttle and sat down as it ascended to his flagship.

Leia brought up the screen that would activate the transmitter. After having received notice from NAVCOM Antilles, she was furious to learn that the First Flag Fleet had dropped out of hyperspace en route to Thyferra. The part that alarmed her the most was that her ever-brilliant husband was in command of that task force

Now Thyferra was in continued danger due to the fact they were not currently chugging at full speed to the besieged planet, as she had believed. It disheartened her more to learn that there was no mechanical failure, but instead the fleet emerged short of its target because Han had simply given the order.

Finally, the Holonet link was established. Having decided to instead use the Chancellorís comm system rather than Hanís own comlink, Leia sat down before the audio-visual transmitter. Seeing Han in on the bridge, and after the communications officer had adjusted her transmission properly, she called, ďAdmiral Solo! Iíd like to speak with you, please.Ē

This post goes off Han's posts in this thread.

"I'd like to know why you're no longer in hyperspace, Admiral," Leia said regally. She had no intention of disregarding rank in public, especially when Han seemed to think his non-existent charm could somehow get him out of this very serious situation.

"In case you hadn't noticed, there's an Imperial fleet attacking one of our worlds," She barked, letting there be no secret that she was irate with Han. "I hope you have a good explanation," she finished, though she probably wouldn't listen to one anyway.

Sitting in disbelief as her husband swiftly tried to talk his way out of the whole mess. When he returned to Denon, there perhaps would be another demotion in store for his incompetence. "I'm afraid not. When they contacted me there was no mention of any reason for a "pitstop."

Leia looked away in disgust and spied Admiral Ackbar in her peripheral vision. He was observing the call from another station with a concerned array of facial positioning. His bulbous head turned to regard Leia, and in a moment there was an unsaid consensus between them. She turned back to the holocamera and spoke, "Admiral, I'm recalling you to Denon. The fleet will remain until a replacement is found. Leave immediately," then she paused, thinking of the possible repercussions between them. However, she determined that things couldn't get any worse. "That is all. Good day," she said before deactivating the channel.

Sitting at the workbench in the Spec Force armory, Josh cursed the inept armory officer who had mis-aligned his sights. The kid was a new transfer, most likely fresh out of the Academy, but any first year armory officer knew not to even touch a Scout's weapon unless specifically ordered. Now he was stuck re-aligning everything, and would have to take the E17-D out to the range later to make sure everything was working correctly.

Although he had remembered most of the settings he had used, he still had to make sure they were correct. However, he would have to save that for later, as he had other things to do today. Apparently several squads of Spec Force were about to be deployed some place, and he had orders to check with his unit commander later in the day to see what was up.

Checking his settings one last time, Joshua walked up to the thick blast-resistant transparisteel the armory officer was behind, and slide his rifle through the opening. Narrowing his eyes, he said, "This time, you were lucky you caught me in a good mood. If it happens again, though, I'll break your fingers, kid."

Shaking his head, he walked off, and made his way into the corridors of the military headquarters. Sighing to himself, he decided he'd take a quick run around the complex before he did anything else.
