Chapter 4


The Judgment's Lance sat on the edge of the Naboo system, waiting for The Master's agents in the Core Worlds to access the Galactic Holonet. Using the Holonet, The Master planned on broadcasting the testing of the Omega Frost weapon on Naboo across the galaxy. The demonstration would spread fear across the galaxy, the first step in his plan to bring down the Galactic Alliance.

The Captain of The Master's elite guard leaned down to The Master, who sat in his personal hoverchair. "The uplink is secure, my lord. The galaxy awaits your transmission." He leaned back and retreated from the bridge.

Imagining what the citizens of the galaxy would look like as his face appeared across the galaxy made The Master grin. He activated his chairs holocommunicator to access the uplink.

"Greetings citizens of the Galactic Alliance! Do not be alarmed, unless you find this disturbing. In that case, be very alarmed. But don't worry, we shall return you to your miserable lives shortly. You must be wondering who I am. My name is not important, my message is. So why am I here? Well as you can see, I am located at Naboo. This serene and tranquil planet has known peace for quite some time. Well... no longer is that the case. I am here to demonstrate my personal superweapon: The Omega Frost! For those of you that are too ignorant to know, The Omega Frost was an Imperial Superweapon that could freeze anything. I have perfected its designs for my purposes. So let's see what this weapon can do against a planet. Fire at will, Captain."

The Captain activated the Omega Frost and in a few short moments, a white laser beam fired from the Lance's main cannon at the planet. At first nothing happened, but after a few moments, the planet began to turn white, eventually being completely frozen.

"This is but a taste of my power. My demands are simple: remove yourselves from the Galactic Alliance or suffer the same fate as Naboo. For those that do this, you are safe from my wrath. The rest of you will not be so lucky. I shall allow twenty-four standard hours for you to deliberate. Prepare yourselves. Change is coming. Those who do not stand aside will be destroyed."

The Master closed the transmission and commanded his droid crew to make the jump back to Koros Major. Just as an Alliance fleet arrived in the system, The Lance made the jump to hyperspace.

*** *** *** ***

The Master's plan was incredibly elaborate. He would create fear and chaos in the Galactic Alliance to weaken it. At the same time he would damage the Allaince infrastructure by targeting worlds key to the Alliance's functioning.

After a thousand years of waiting, The Master would finally return to the galactic stage, and the galaxy would never be the same...

Revan am I right? Love it, IMO this 'Master' character is rather Revan like, hell bent on 'saving' the galaxy from the Sith and in the process becoming the very thing he hoped to destroy...

Judgement's Lance - gotta give it too you that's an epic name if there ever was one!

However one problem. I'm not well versed on the post-NJO era - luckily your operating in a section I prefer more than others (so you will not feel my wrath!!) But I've little idea of events going on at this point, e.g. Abeloth, Darth Krayt and this Alliance. So could you give me a mini-in depth/background to your story? I'd rather here it from you than Wookieepedia

OK so this story takes place a few years after Luke's battles with Abeloth and the incident on Coruscant. So Coruscant is in rough shape, but the Galactic Alliance is recovering as is Darth Krayt and the Sith. The Master sees Luke's temporary alliance with Krayt and the Sith as a sign of weakness from the Jedi and wants to change the galaxy.

During The Master's preperations, the Galactic Alliance is recovering but they don't expect the war that The Master will unleash. It's going to get epicly crazy. And you're absolutely right about The Master. He is very much like Revan.

Now as to what was going on before the story takes place. Luke got exiled by Chief of State Natasi Daala, and went on a mission to find out why Jacen Solo fell to the Dark Side. Leading him to the Sith and Abeloth. After a few battles, an uneasy alliance, and the devastation of Coruscant, Luke defeated Abeloth and "peace" is restored.

For now...

So, from my tenuous grasp of post-ROTJ this is how I see things: The Galatic Alliance lost the Sith-Imperial War and the galaxy was placed under Imperial rule (did the Alliance remain intact) Luke gets exiled at some point because of a disagreement with the Alliance leader, who is kinda crazy power hungry and corrupt. Abeloth shows up and the Empire and the Alliance team up to defeat her, and then return to peace. What I don't get is that the Imperials are still in charge, so how come the Galatic Alliance is still about? And seem to be running the galaxy? Do they still have some of galaxy under their control?

You've jumped a bit ahead of the timeline there. The Sith-Imperial War doesn't happen for another 70 years after the battles with Abeloth. You've gotten a few things mixed up here.

Admiral Daala was once a member of the Galactic Empire and became the Chief of State of the GA. She begins a war on the Jedi that starts with Luke's exile. Luke goes on a soul-searching mission and finds Abeloth and the Lost Tribe of the Sith. Long story short, Abeloth and the Sith are defeated. Abeloth will probably come back as will the Sith.

As to the events you detailed. The Imperial Remnant and the Sith win the Sith-Imperial War and the GA turns into the Rebel Alliance.

Chapter 5


The Judgment's Lance sat surrounded by the flagships of the other Watchers in the cold loneliness of space as The Master's twenty-four hour deadline ended. Twenty-four hours and no worlds left the Alliance. The Master admired their bravery, their foolishness more like it, but he expected a different result. Phase two of his plan would have to go into motion then.

The holoimage of The Soldier appeared from the holoprojector of The Master's hoverchair. "What's next Master?" The Soldier was eager for battle. "What is your 'Master Plan?'"

The Master was the only Watcher with experience in war, but if his plan went well, The Watchers would have to face minimal resistance. "The Galactic Alliance requires order for stability. We must disrupt the order that they so desperately cling to."

"You have a plan, I suppose?" The Soldier replied with a hint of impatience.

The Master could feel The Soldier's desire for battle, the carnage that The Master's war would bring. "Plans, plans, plans. Everyone has their plans. The Galactic Alliance relies on plans to create order in the galaxy, but when these plans fall to pieces their back-up plans are useless. I will render their attempts for stability useless and watch as they tear themselves apart!"

The Soldier's impatience grew, but he knew not to act on it. "How, exactly?"

The Master could explain it all to his oldest student, but doing so was unnecessary. "Fear. That's how. We target important systems to spread fear across the galaxy. Our attacks will spread fear across the galaxy. The citizens of the Galactic Alliance will tear each other apart as our war deprives them of what they need to survive."

The Soldier's impatience was replaced with elation. "So you want to wage a war of terror?!"

Partially, but that was all The Soldier needed to know for now. "Correct. You and I shall attack a system of critical importance to the Galactic Alliance: Thyferra. This planet acts as the main producer of Bacta for the Galactic Alliance. Taking this planet will deprive the Alliance of their main source of Bacta. Once their reserves are depleted, chaos will spread as people fight for what little Bacta remains." The Master waved the Captain of his guard to him. "Make the jump to lightspeed."

Chapter 6


Jaden Korr was not happy about his newest assignment. Master Skywalker had sent him to Thyferra to make sure the Vratix shiiped out as much Bacta as possible in case of an attack by this new enemy. Jaden preferred to find this guy and take him down, but he wasn't going to doubt in Master Skywalker's wisdom.

He was greeted by the insectoid Vratix on the central factory's rooftop landing pad. The insectoid Vratix scurried about as he was escorted into the factory. The bubble-like structure was deceptive as the inner-workings were less than majestic. The Bacta was being processed and prepared for shipping to the Core Worlds when Jaden's personal communicator beeped at him. He pulled it out of his utility belt and activated it.

The image from the communicator was that of the Mon Calamarian captain aboard the Viscount Battle Cruiser heading the defense force above Thyferra. "Jedi! An enemy fleet has..." The comm cut out with static.

Jaden quickly enhanced his speed with The Force and ran to the rooftop. He looked up to the sky to see two massive black ships engaging the Alliance defense fleet. "This isn't good..."

*** *** *** ***


The Judgment's Lance pulled out of hyperspace, followed by The Soldier's flagship The Unstoppable, to find a small Alliance fleet awaiting them. Three Imperial Star Destroyers, a dozen Corvette's, and one Viscount Battle Cruiser.

The Master was displeased, to say the least. He assumed the Galactic Alliance would station more ships to defend their precious Bacta. "Jam their transmissions." The Master commanded his droid crew. He did not want unneccessary complications in such a vital mission. "Now move to engage that Viscount at point-blank range."

The Master's ships moved to engage the Viscount cruiser by initiating a tactical maneuver commonly known as the A-Wing Cross. The Lance and the Unstoppable would bombard the Viscount from the flanks at point-blank range, while engaging the other Star Destroyers with missle fire and short range guns.

Gazing out the main viewport, The Master watched as his fighters engaged Alliance ships only to be interrupted by The Lance's point-defense cannons. As his ships neared the Viscount cruiser, The Master projected a powerful Force barrier around The Lance and watched as fire from the enemy fleet was absorbed by his powerful barrier.

Suddenly, The Master felt a tremor in The Force. A Jedi had infiltrated his ship and was approaching the bridge. This amused The Master as he was eager to test his power against one of Luke's students. Upon closer examination of this power, however, The Master found that this Jedi would not be sufficient.

The double doors of the bridge slid open as the young Jedi entered. He was a tall man, with very distinguished features and was dressed in the standard garments of the Jedi Order. The Jedi sported a thin beard on his chin and short hair.

"A boy? Is this it? Is this all you can summon against me Skywalker?" The Master was almost angered that Skywalker didn't take him seriously.

The Jedi activated his Lightsaber, the yellow blade hissing to life. "You're going to pay for what you did to Naboo!" The Jedi yelled.

The Master scoffed at his bravado. "Come now, child. What can you do against me?" The Master said as he stepped out of his chair and pulled out the curved hilt of his Lightsaber from his brown robes. He took up the standard fencing stance of Makashi as the green blade of his lightsaber flared to life.

The Jedi quickly leapt into action, bringing his blade down in a two-handed strike. The Master effortlessly side-stepped the attack and grabbed the collar of the Jedi's tan tunic and threw him back five meters. The Jedi attacked again, this time with a two-handed strike from the right. The Master blocked this attack as the Jedi pulled back, only to attack with even more ferocity, unleashing a flurry of strikes. The Master blocked and parried the attacks with little effort until he saw an opening. The Master struck lightning fast, batting the Jedi's blade our of his hands.

Despite the loss of his weapon, the Jedi fought on, throwing a punch with his right hand. The Master intercepted this with his left hand by grabbing the Jedi's wrist and applied The Force to the Shatterpoints in it. The bones shattered in his hand, causing the young Jedi to scream in pain. The Master quickly grabbed the back of the Jedi's neck and dragged him over to the main viewport. He pressed the Jedi's face against the viewport to show him the destruction his fleet had caused. The scattered remains of the enemy fleet burned as the planet's gravity pulled them in. Nothing survived his attack.

"Look at what I have done, Jedi. This is but a taste of the destruction that I could unleash on the galaxy." The Master released the young Jedi and let him crawl to his discarded Lightsaber. "Return to your master and tell him what has happened here. Tell the galaxy of my victory."

The young Jedi made the smart choice to flee The Master. The Master would not trouble himself with holding the Jedi captive. The Jedi would serve as a messenger and a weapon to incite fear in the Jedi Order.

Several minutes later, the Jedi's ship exited the system. The Master, seated in his chair, waved his Captain over to him. "Deploy the ground troops."

Yeah, I would have to say so. Or perhaps he is like Atris in that he has not realized it yet. But trust me, once he realizes he has fallen, he will become far more dangerous. Look for that in the third installment.
