"Is my flagship ready?

"The Potestatem is fully at your command, Admiral."

General Admiral Ferdinand Cartos sat in the command chair of the Gauntlet-Class Star Destroyer Postestatem, overlooking the blackened surface of the planet Corulag. He sat silent as the bridge hummed with its normal activity, just another day of routine. He folded hid hands in his lap as he sat back in the chair, swiveling it to face out the port windows.

"Sir, if I may be so bold... why are we here?" Captain Pierce stood at a parade rest behind Cartos, looking out the forward viewport and ignoring the cooling planet beneath him. It was not generally wise to question the orders of the fleet admiral, but Cartos had spent the past year proving to his crew that any questions were acceptable as opposed to ignorance.

"Since the declaration of war by the Rebel Alliance a year ago, I have made it my goal to learn the mistakes of the last war. It is a stupid man that does not learn from his own mistakes, a smart man that learns from his own mistakes, and a wise man that learns from others mistakes. I have vowed that I will not repeat the errors of the old Command." Cartos rose and, tugging his tunic down walked to the port viewport. He motioned for sensor command to begin temperature analysis of the planetary surface, his eyes taking in the volcanoes and the brittle surface of Corulag.

The captain did not make any sound or motion as the fleet around him moved to a defensive formation. Cartos let his eyes take in the sight, his fists tightening behind his back. This was what happened when personal vendettas took over rational thought and following orders. He vowed that he would not allow the same thing to happen again. More channels chimed as the fleet communicated with one another, and one of the science officers spoke up. "Thermal analysis completed, Admiral. Data has been stored aboard main computer banks, and is now being sent to Coruscant for further analysis."

"Confirmed, science station. Helm, transmit visual coded signals to the rest of the fleet, assume travel formation beta. We will remain in orbit for another two hours before taking another set of readings of the planetary surface and returning to Coruscant. Keep port deflector shields up, and make sure the captains of all ships take in this sight. The lesson learned is not for me alone.

A chorus of "aye sir"s resounded around the bridge as Cartos returned to the Admiral's Chair, the captain taking a seat in the primary command chair. Cartos smiled as he looked to the Captain, his voice soft but commanding. "I do not care if you agree with my methods, Captain, and I do not care if you protest them to the ends of the galaxy. My only requisite to you is that in any hostile situation, you immediately and unfailingly follow my orders, do I make myself clear?"

"Aye, sir." The captain nodded once, then turned to the science station and began to give orders to prepare for the next sensor sweep of the area. Cartos sat back in his chair, reminising a little about his first search-and-destroy mission pursing the Sovereign-class Dreadnought Cunning Petyr. It was that success that had earned him his rank, and his first taste of learning that no ship has a complete invulnerability. And it would serve him well for the dark season again.

"Sir, incoming hyperspace signal with an Imperial carrier... it's the Mjolnir, sir." The communications officer turned to Cartos, who was already turning to watch the massive shape drop from hyperspace at the edge of the gravity well. He smiled tightly, then turned to the communications station.

"Excellent. Send an escort of two squadrons of TIE Fighters, and get me communications with Colonel-General Scyntor. Last I heard he was mired in the bureaucracy of Carida and realy wanted to get out again."

The communications officer nodded as he turne dback to the console, and a moment later twenty-four TIE Defenders shot out of the hangar bays, joining the Acclamator in its quest for the surface. He also nodded to the Cartographical officer, who proceeded to transmit all of the thermal data they had been collecting - the Colonel-General needed a hard place to land and deploy his troops.

"Good day, Colonel-General. I assume we have received the same orders from the Supreme Moff so I won't keep you, but I will have transmisison sent to your helm concerning hyperjump back to Coruscant. I am due for a refitting, and I am going to guess that without your standard compliment of troopers you will need to get re-stocked."

Cartos turned to the holotransmitter as the signal was accepted by the Mjolnir. he walked back to the Admiral's Chair and took a seat, nodding for hsi officers to reroute the communication there as ha laid his hands against the terminals.

"Confirmed, Admiral - we're due for a refit and need to pick up some passengers before heading off to our next assignment. If you don't mind I'd like to arrange a little conference with you and General Dario - some new changes recently implimented I'd like to catch you up to speed on."

Cartos smiled tightly. It ws more than that - Scyntor wanted to test him, see how much he knew about Stormtrooper protocols and his ability to issue orders to the soldiers complimented to his ship. This was one test he wasn't going to fail. He flicked the comm and smiled very slightly, his voice grave with authority. "Acknowledged, Colonel-General. A shuttle will be waiting in low orbit above your current position to dock with you, and transport you to the Potestatem. I look forward to our meeting - Cartos out"

Cartos smiled as he rose, tugging his suit jacket down as he strode to the viewpanels once more.

As soon as Scyntor's shuttle was docked, he turned to the helm controls. "Transmit coordinates to Mjolnir's helm controls, and relay the countdown frequency. They will be accompanying us to Coruscant for refitting and personel shore leave. Execute in two minutes, thirty seconds."

With that the General-Admiral turned and exited the bridge, returning the slautes of the personel he passed on his way to the battle bridge, where he had the escorts guiding the Colonel-General. It seemed to be an appropriate place for them to meet.

The Fifteenth Systems Force and Mjolnir are enroute to Coruscant.

Cartos looked out over the bridge of the Potestatem for what he knew was to be the last time. He walked over to the command chair and ran his fingers over the arms, worm smooth by his hands. He prayed the ship would go to a worthy place, but the tasks in store for him requred a different type of force. He turned to his crew and smiled slightly, almost sadly. "It has been an honor to serve with you, ladies and gentlemen... but unfortunately I have been called to another assignment. I pray you will serve your new commander with the same determination you served me with. May the gods be with you all." And with that, and not another word, he exited the bridge to the hangar bay.

As the shuttle dropped from the Potestatem's hangar bay, he looked back one last time at the craft as he transfered to a new ship. He had his orders to go to Ralltir and negotiate the one-time Imperial ally's re-introduction back into the folds of the Terretories.

Admiral Cartos has been transfered to the Liberator-class Cruiser Necromancer.
