Chapter 4:
The Thunderclap

As Jorgan boarded their new, top-of-the-line BT-7 Thunderclap, he felt a little thrill rush through him. A gold protocol model droid walked up to Prudii, but Jorgan paid it no mind as he wandered through the ship.

There was a small but well-stocked armory, with enough rifles to stock a full six-man squad and then some, and a few backup suits of armor. No helmets, unfortunately.

When Prudii finally pulled himself away from the protocol unit, he activated the holocom and requested permission to leave Coruscant.

They were on their way.

After the mission to rescue the Senator, Wraith slipped through their grasp. Jorgan kicked himself for that; he could’ve gotten to Wraith while Prudii saved the Senator.

But it couldn’t be helped.

Now they were sitting docked at Carrick Station, waiting for Garza to decode the info and give them the locations of the traitors.

In their time off, Prudii had been summoned to help with an internal crisis, something about a Republic weapon called Hammer. Jorgan didn’t like being left behind, but it had to be a small team, and they had recruited the still-rising stars: the heroes of the Esseles.

When Prudii returned, he tossed a large, round object at Jorgan. Jorgan caught it and looked down. It was a Republic soldier’s helmet–a real one, like he’d seen in the vids.

“Sir?” he asked.

“After my help in the Hammer Station incident, the Republic saw fit to supply us with these,” Prudii replied.

Jorgan saw that Prudii was holding a helmet of his own under his arm. Jorgan gave him a feral grin and tossed his stupid hat to the ground, slamming his helmet down over his head and enjoying the feeling of being overwhelmed by the HUD.

Jorgan sat in the main hold of the Thunderclap and watched as Prudii conversed with Garza. She had decrypted the info–Taris and Nar Shaddaa were their first targets.

“Great,” Jorgan said when Garza closed the line. “Let’s go.”
