    "There were questions asked at the briefing that Master Keda referred to mission specs and materials," Kacela says as the last stragglers enter. "This is the time to ask those questions again, and get answers. We have full files on the previous K'ril incidents, and on what is known of their technology and tactics."

    "Just bear in mind that we don't know -everything-. There are still mysteries to them that we haven't unlocked."

    Hawke just shakes his head. "Republic law doesn't extend out to the Rim, and even if it did I've only been in a standard branch of the Republic military for a short time. I was in the scout corps for over a decade. The scouts really don't give a damn for enforcing laws, we just want to explore the galaxy."

    "Inspecting the ship, eh?" Sianni regards Hawke quizzically for a moment before breaking in a broad grin. "I'll have to give you, though, as far as euphemisms for 'looking at my butt' go, it's certainly one of the more imaginative ones. Not that I blame you, it is truly a spectacular exemplar of its kind."
    "I...." Hawke blinks, then grins. "... would have to agree with you on that last bit."

    When she follows him through the bulkhead, Sianni seems to badly misjudge the dimensions of both door and corridor and squeezes past Hawke, provocatively rubbing her body against his in the process, before she makes her way to the briefing room, still wiggling her rear rather exaggeratingly.
    Hawke doesn't shy away from the contact, and makes sure to eye the Twi'lek appreciatively as she struts away, then shakes his head again and moves along. Curious people they found for this one...

    Hawke settles into a chair in a corner and props his legs up on a nearby end table, leaning back and draping his arm over the side of the chair. "Well, the technological capacity of the K'ril is what most concerns me. Force-users or not, it's their machines that are what's dangerous. What do we know about them?"

    A quick search through the information you've been given brings up...

    The self-styled K'ril Technomages were often powerful wielders of the force, and some of them, particularly those with Jedi and/or Sith training -- and Karil Valera herself had both -- were masters of the lightsabers frequently used by Jedi and sometimes used by others with training in the Force, but they were quite rightly most feared for their machinery.

    The K'ril were known to build their 'improvements' into a wide variety of devices. Droids, weapons, armor, starships, computers, and even the giant combination factory, space station, and assault carrier that was the second Star Forge. Military devices tended to have better shields and/or more powerful energy weapons, but in any case they had functionality that would require a significantly greater power draw than could normally be built into a device of that size. Jedi researchers examining captured K'ril technology determined that K'ril devices drew on the Dark Side of the Force to replace conventional energy sources.

    "Underestimate the powers of the Force at your peril," Kacela says mildly.

    "But the gist of their technology as far as I can tell is that their machines are smaller and more powerful than non Force-augmented technology. In short, if facing K'ril, we can expect to be outgunned."

    "Oh, no, I merely meant that whether or not they are Force users - the data seems to say that not all of them were - it's their machines that seem to have caused the most worry." Hawke corrects Kacela. "Tech that can pack a starfighter-grade laser cannon in a war droid is bad news. You're the resident Force expert; I'll leave any Dark Adepts or whatever to your care. The Force is way outta my league... I just fly the ship and beat the grass." He laughs to himself.

    Hawke turns back to his datapad and brings up the info on K'ril war droids, blasters, and starfighters - considering those to be the most immediate areas of interest. Even a normal tech capital ship is trouble for a ship like the Phet, and computers sounds like Tomalor's area of expertise more than Hawke's.

    Tomalor cringes more at the discussion of the K'ril technology, especially the droids. "Tomalor see these things. Their machines sing, sing a song of darkness. Not a song of harmony." He looks nervously at the Jedi, but continues on, trying to make an important point. "The no need any one to sing the song for them after created, but those that sing make the machine's song stronger." Its eyes dark unsure to Kacela briefly, then the Ithoran bows his head. He types quickly at the datapad, trying to find out more about the K'ril computers, droids, and such, afraid to confirm or learn more.

    Unlike many other aspects of K'ril technology (though their war machines are another exception), the basic K'ril computer systems do not show the telltale signs of equipment designed by academics with little field experience. Indeed, the basic software security systems were designed to defeat all hacking techniques used in the criminal underworld at the time, showing distinct hints at Twi'lek espionage techniques. This was no surprise, as one of the premier outlaw software experts, one Lejo Vapasi, served as their senior software expert until he disappeared, leaving a complete packet of the K'ril security protocols in the hands of the Jedi Knight Keda Starwind.

    K'ril hardware incorporates some Rakatan elements, and tends to rely on standard K'ril techniques to deal with excessive power draw, but was mostly based on the state of the art at the time.

    Information on starfighters seems to come up first...

    The two major influences on K'ril starfighter design were the fighters produced by the original Star Forge, and the Mandalorian fighter designs at the time. The stock K'ril starfighter was a two-man fighter, smaller than the three-man heavy fighter the Mandalorians of the time employed, but larger than the one-man light fighter they employed for scouting and recon tasks. In terms of firepower and shields, though, it compared very favorably to heavy starfighter designs of the time, while maintaing the speed and manuevarbility of the light fighter designs.

    Ijatsi Systems became the Republic's primary supplier of starfighters shortly after the first K'ril Incursion despite being new to the business. Their starfighters were heavily influenced by K'ril designs, though improved generators and engines allowed Ijatsi's starfighters to offer similar performance to the older K'ril starfighters without employing the same shortcuts.

    Theta's search reveals two relevant articles...

    With few expereinced soldiers among their numbers, the K'ril relied on mercenary forces both to build, train, and command their own armed forces and to conduct raids for the material they used to build their Star Forge. Although they hired mercenaries from many sources, the majority of them were Mandalorians. As such, the K'ril military forces were heavily influenced by Mandalorian traditions. Which meant that although ruthless and brutally efficient, K'ril soldiers never developed the widespread patterns of atrocities that soldiers for other dark side cults (most notably the Sith) almost invariably fell into.

    After the final defeat of the K'ril and the destruction of the second Star Forge, many K'ril soldiers were adopted into the Mandalorian clans, while many others scattered to all ends of the galaxy.

    One of the more effective mercenary commanders in the K'ril Navy, his campaigns took a dozen worlds for the K'ril before he was caught with only one capital ship and its starfighter wing to hold off a task force of the Republic Navy. Given a tactical situation far beyond what superior ships could compensate for, he had little choice but to surrender his command, and did so. He was released from a Republic POW camp after the end of the war. No further records are available.
