Nerfherders of the Old Republic

HK-48a Log Segment #5351

<*

  • Boot Up. I appear to have been repaired by Rakat. Head backwards. Issuing insult 9912 to coerce proper repair. Shutdown initiated.
  • Boot Up. I am functioning at 20% capacity. Repairs initiated. Initial scans indicate the ship is in Hyperspace. Queries to companions indicate we are bound for Cathar. Approximately 16 hours till arrival. 3.25 hours needed for repairs.
  • Repairs successful. Operating at 100% efficiency.
  • Arrival at Cathar. En route to Droid HQ for consultation with Jikka. Korrin and Orren en route to Jedi to report. Oshi and Rakat status unknown.
  • Query to Jikka on space traffic to Sith Space. Information provided on several cargo ships with gaps in flight logs. Quarren pilot listed presents a 52.6% probability of being a smuggler by description and inherent racial characteristics. Also presents a 95% chance of profitable encounter. Will seek out immediately.
  • Arrival at Quarren Ship. Preliminary sensory scan indicates possible smuggler’s compartment in port-aft quarter of ship. Audio sensors detect possible captive within hidden compartment.
  • Ship hull standard construction, 98% durasteel, 2% plascrete reinforcement. Application of plasma torch will require approximately 580 seconds to cut a 1.6 meter diameter portal. Application of lightsaber will require approximately 48 seconds. Initiate Jedi subroutine 0041.
  • Cutting of portal accomplished in 46.2 seconds. Hidden chamber appears to be a slave smuggling compartment. Malnourished wookie shackled within. Initiating negotiation-interrogation subroutine 0203 indicates Quarren is a slave trader working out of Kasshyyk in Sith space.
  • Quarren has arrived on scene with local authorities. Initiation of summary of Wookie situation appears to put guards on my side. Quarren reaction of fear indicates possible exploitation for information. Quarren attempted to flee, but stopped by companions. Initiating deception routine 0014 and negation-interrogation subroutine 0049.
  • Quarren successfully intimidated and interrogated. Subject has given the name of a Twilek contact by the name of Pharophine, at Phalo’s Cantina on Nar Shadda. This Twilek apparently organizes safe passage to Sith space for slave trade. Situational analysis indicates this contact may be leveraged to locate the Sith agent that previously escaped, or at least gain access to Sith space so he may be tracked. Quarren turned over to authorities.
  • Encyclopedic entry on wookies indicates slave trade due to exceptional strength and manual dexterity with fine implements. Entries also indicate extremes in honoring depts, including a “life debt.” Rescue of slave indicates a 90% probability that this wookie will attempt to repay the rescue with some sort of equal service. Will introduce the wookie to Jikka and apply life debt repayment to liberating droids.
  • Companions informed of Quarren’s information. Rakat Ve indidicates that Blade Wen may be tracked by scanning for a particular radiation signature. Calculations of last known trajectory indicate Koriban and Kashyyk as possible destinations. Logical plan formulations suggests that safe passage to Sith space be obtained before tracking endeavors. There is a 68% probability that this may be obtained from Pharophine.
  • Orren informs party of a transport job that requires travel to Nar Shadda. The job is convenient and a logical endeavor. After departure from Cathar I contact Droid Shuttle 001 to return to our previous location and salvage Sith Infiltrator. After a retrofit and liberation of a pilot droid the ship will make an excellent addition to fleet.
  • First stop at Bool Bingo’s casino is uneventfull. Standard docking procedures. Initiated bodyguard subroutine 006 to accompany Orren on pickup. Mission uneventfull. Departure to Nar Shadda.
  • Arrival at Nar Shadda. Ravek and Orren arrange docking with Lady Varsin. Calculating 95% probability that Varsin will extort extra money for docking fees.
  • Group gathers information on location of Phalo’s Cantina. We proceed to location.
  • Cursory examination of Cantina indicates small local crime syndicate base of operations. Initiating deception routine 0191 and negation-interrogation subroutine 0067 with bartender to meet with Phalophine. Attempt at direct negation meets with failure. Psychological profile of Phalophine indicates small scale crime lord with heightened sense of importance. Low quality base of operation and Gammorean guards indicate reliance on fear of power rather than actual power. There is only a 32% probability that continued civil negation will yield positive results. There is a 74% probability that use of fear in negotiation-interrogation will yield positive results.
  • Formulation of interrogation plan complete. Local patrons, guards, and home advantage indicate a 28% probability that direct confrontation will yield positive results. Seclusion of target from all factors preferred. Cursory examination of environment shows fastest and most direct exit from premisis is directly up. Target appears within weight tolerance, however structural integrity of the roof is unknown.
  • Conversation terminated. Exiting the building indicates one story structure. A quick sabotage job on the roof should lower structural integrity to a point required for egress. Upon re-entering the bar, conversation to meet with Phalophine again fails. Logical interpretation of Crime Lord encyclopedia entries indicates a 80% probability that an additional meeting can be arranged with a bribe. A 10,000 credit bribe is offered. Success.
  • Upon meeting with Phalophine, Initiate grapple attack subroutine 0678. Target secure. Targeting ceiling with Heavy Blaster Cannon. Maximum yield. Repulsorjets engaged. Maximim load capacity reached with target but sufficient escape velocity achievable at half speed.
  • Target altitude of 500 meters reached. Initiating negotiation-interrogation subroutine 1081. Subject extremely tolerant of intimidation. Attempting negotiation-interrogation subroutine 1622. Success, an accord has been reached. Subject returned to Cantina.
  • Cursory examination of scene indicates party attempted covert assistance, but are unharmed. Phalophine keeps to the deal, and we have arranged passage as slave traders to Kashyyk.
  • Arrival at Kashyyk. Minor Sith presence. Initial radiation scans show no sign of target. More information to the location of Blade Wen required. Situational analysis indicates 40% chance of success through direct combat, 15% chance of direct communication success, 70% chance of success continuing posing as a slave trader and obtaining information on planet.
  • Communication with Sith control initiated. Combining personality profiles of known criminals and traders for voice modulation. Initiate deception routine 0054. Success, we have permission to land.
  • Interaction with local administrators indicates no signs of Blade Wen. Previous astrological calculations indicate next probable destination Korriban. There is a 83% chance of successfully infiltrating Korriban space as wookie slave trader due to unforged flight logs from kashyyk and wookie cargo. Minimal investment in wookies required to pose as trader. Jedi nobility subroutines indicate best possible use of slave purchase would go towards liberating a complete family. Sith administrators willing to sell family for 9000 credits. Tactical intelligence subroutines indicates best possible use of slave purchase would go towards liberating a wookie resistance leader or elder who could provide more information. At cost of 3000 credits, one is available. 12000 credit investment could yield massive material, spiritual, and intelligence dividends. Full purchase of all 5 wookies initiated.
  • Upon departure, wookies informed of imminent freedom and offered relocation and employment services with Jikka. Elder wookie questioned for information. Information of Blades and general Sith force disposition obtained.
  • Arrival at Korriban. Deception routine 0054 initiated again with minor re-programming of vocal scripts. Cargo scans and flight logs legitimate and landing on Korriban trade port approved.
  • Log suspended.
