    "Hmm. According to this, Ijatsi Systems seems to be heavily involved in the whole thing. They stole fighter designs from the K'ril, and now the K'ril are stealing back? Seems fishy..." Hawke follows the link to the Ijatsi Systems information on the datapad.

    Quote Originally Posted by datapad
    Ijatsi Systems

    Nelson Ijatsi was the second son of a very wealthy family on Nerem 5, and a spacecraft engineering student when the K'ril attacks began. He volunteered for the Republic Navy, and trained as a pilot during the short lull between their initial appearance and when they struck in force. Ijatsi developed a fascination with the K'ril spacecraft he was going up against, and devoted an inordinate amount of the time he wasn't involved in actual combat to puzzling out how the other side's craft worked. For security reasons, the true secret behind the K'ril ships' power sources was never revealed to anyone outside the high command of the Fleet, but Ijatsi was able to use his influence with his family to get one of their companies to bid on the contract to reverse engineer whatever could be reverse engineered from K'ril spacecraft.

    Placed in charge of the project, Ijatsi brought in engineers from all across the galaxy. Although their directives were to reverse engineer the K'ril ships, Ijatsi and his team devoted extensive efforts to trying to duplicate the effects of components that they couldn't determine how worked. Pressed to show a profit on the enterprise, Ijatsi suggested going into the starfighter business themselves.

    Although many traditional powers in the shipbuilding industry were shocked when a complete newcomer won a contract to build the Republic's next space superiority fighter ten years after the K'ril Incursion, Ijatsi's starfighters lived up to everything they promised.

    Ijatsi's internal documents suggest they never discovered the true secret of the overpowered K'ril spacecraft, though there was some puzzlement expressed at the great deal of interest the Jedi Order showed in the corporation during its early years. Still unresolved, though, is the exact history of a great many of the engineers Ijatsi hired in his early project; many came from worlds that were apparently under K'ril control for decades before the war started.

    'So, grandfather was a prisoner of war but disapeared after they let him go.' Theta thinks to himself. 'He surrendered his command instead of fighting to the death in a battle unable to be won?'

    "Hmmm..." Theta sighs as his data searches turn into dead ends. Hearing about the results of Hawkes search he comments to no one in particular "Well, now we have reason for the attack on the Ijatsi. We must find out what triggered the second attack."

    OOC: Feel free to retroactively add any more research and/or discussion during transit...

    After a few days, the Korlen Phet breaks out of hyperspace and into the Nerem system, and Hawke takes the ship on approach to the Ijatsi research station in orbit of Nerem 5.

    A message buoy lies on the edge of the approach, broadcasting.

    "Warning! This stations is under Republic Navy Quarantine. Do not approach without authorization. Warning!" .... the message repeats while Hawke searches for the authorization codes. After he finds them, the transmission abruptly stops.

    On exiting hyperspace, Kacela goes to the cockpit, wanting to see the station herself from the outside.

    She greets Hawke as she enters, simply saying, "Hawke," and leaning over a bit to see out the window from behind his chair.

    "How does it look? Signs of outside damage? Any debris?"

    Tomalor does a bit more research into the K'ril machines and such, sharing what he finds. But he says little more than that.

    ~~~

    During the trip, the Ithorian spends it in his quarters. The sound of rattling and and other sort of mechanical work can be heard. When out, he keeps to the mess, eating a lot, probably nervously. He actively tries to avoid the Jedi, obviously fearful.

    ~~~

    Then the ship comes out of hyperspace, Tomalor is in his room. Working on something.

    Theta continues reviewing data during their search. He doesn't say much unless spoken to directly. Afterwards, he explores the ship and spends his free time keeping his gear clean and in good condition. He familiarizes himself with the weapons controls and is sitting on station at the ship weapons post when they drop out of hyperspace. If there doesn't appear to be any immediate threat, he fires off a few salvos to get the feel of the weapons in action.

    At the meeting...

    "I'm not liking how tightly Ijatsi is tied up in all this. Says here that Nerem 5 is the homeworld of the founder of Ijatsi Systems, and that a lot of the techs he hired when he started the company were from K'ril-held worlds. Worlds they held long before the war." He frowns, then shrugs, looking up at the rest of the team. "Well, there's a mystery for sure. Not much more to learn from here. We'll be at Nerem 5 in a couple days. I think I'm going to head to my quarters and get some shut-eye."

    With that, he hops to his feet and heads out of the meeting room to his own quarters.

    A few days later...

    Kacela greets Hawke as she enters, simply saying, "Hawke," and leaning over a bit to see out the window from behind his chair.

    "How does it look? Signs of outside damage? Any debris?"
    "See for yourself," he says, not looking up from his instruments, but flipping a switch to show an image of the research station on a screen in the cockpit.

    I'm assuming there'd be some kind of magnification-enabled visual scanners, even though such a technology wasn't ever used in any of the movies.

    I've also posted this in the OOC thread, but...

    Because I'll be out of town between Christmas and New Year's, would like to review Starships of the Galaxy before things really get going, and don't really think it's a good idea to start dungeon-crawling, err, station-crawling and then stop things for a week, I'm not going to make any major posts again before next year.
