The Deathwatch Marauder-class Corvette parked in the orbit of Zsoldos with an eerily silence left over from the recent battle with Plagueis forces. With the rest of the Clan aiding in the escape of the Grand Master Nothing was really left but to finally relax and maintain administration of the House Wren.
“Hail the Deathwatch and get me a current briefing of Deathwatch and House Wren’s current status.” the Questor of Wren ordered
The nearby communications officer sent the call and acknowledged the command. “ Um, sir they haven’t responded…”
“Keep at it he won’t be able to meditate if he keeps getting pinged, It’s something I know he hates either way.”
“Sir we have another problem, our systems show that the Marauders engines are missing parts or offline and won’t be able to run at full capacity as well as I can’t seem to contact engineering”
“Send a security team to check it out, I’d hate to not be able to answer a call, especially one from Kalan” Rulvak ordered.
“I want to know what’s going on here!”
“You don’t think it has to do with what our boarding party brought back from the Plagueis ship cargo hold do you?” As Kano asked the power of the ship seemed to flicker before shutting off completely and the restarting.
Zsoldos Deathwatch Camp
Among the hustle and bustle of the camp being repaired from the previous attacks, a faint beep could be heard from the camps administration office.
Kade and Dral looked at each other before looking back at the Battleteam Leaders office from where the sound could be heard.
“Best of 3?” the Journeyman asked
“Like we have a choice?” Dral replied with an uneasy voice.
As they both stepped back they counted, first Kade “One…”, then Dral “Two…” and finally together “Three!” As they both drew a weapon from their respective stored holster or sheath. Dral pulled out his vibroblade as Kade pulled out a blaster at the same time. With a small fit of disappointment Dral slowly sheathed his knife as Kade did the same for his blaster.
On the second round Dral pulled a blaster as Kade drew a container from his belt.
With a sigh Dral put his blaster back and walked towards the door and knocked. On the third knock the door opened itself to reveal that no one was inside and the office which Dral had lined with explosives in the event of an enemy occupation could be destroyed was in disarray.
On the desk a blinking light flashed indicating a call. Dral slowly made his way towards the desk to accept the call before being hailed on his own communicator.
“Dral have you seen the Appius?” the scruffy voice of Kade echoed in his ear.
“No I haven’t I was expecting to see him in the Deathwatch office once you took his place” the blue Mandalorion replied
“You mean he’s not at the camp?” The Raider demanded
“No sir, and there’s a message for him, should I reply?”
“No, I’ll inform the House and Clan of his disappearance, but I want you to take command until then, Find out what’s going on and report back to me when you know. I also need a security team sent to the Marauder, there seems to be an issue with the ship and the Questor wants to know what.”
