Sol.Terra - Episode 1.1: Terra DayCal stepped into the doorway of his shuttle and raised a hand to shield his eyes. The light on Terra was so harsh, particularly this continent. He reached into his coat and pulled out the tinted glasses and the bio-scanner he carried. Slipping the glasses on, he checked the scanner screen to make sure he had landed in the right place. The readout confirmed it: Sol.Terra, Australia, Sydney. A small blip on the corner of the screen told him the Soschan he’d been sent to find wasn’t far away. Too violent for IU membership, many Soschans had taken to using their unique camouflage ability to emigrate Off-World illegally. This suited Cal just fine, as it gave him an excuse to travel there as well to pick them up.Sol.Terra - Episode 1.1: Terra Day2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

This fanfic took me like 3 weeks to make. Just before school started I watched The Phantom Menace again. It was then I realized that I was in love with Obi-Wan Kenobi. I mean, in the original series he was one of my favourite characters, but he was a crusty old guy then, haha. But in the prequels... man! (Ewan McGregor, guys. He's a gift.) Anyway, I wanted to write a fanfiction about him, and while writing it I came across so many writers blocks and during that time I couldn't even come up with a name for the reader's master. So, that's where you guys come in. (M/N) literally means (Mater's Name). You get to make it up. It makes my job a little easier, and gives you a chance to get a little creative. (Y/N) is the standard (Your Name) as usual. I hope you enjoy!))

He jumped down from the reptilian creature and held out his arms to you, as it was obviously too far of a jump to make without the assistance of a strong and handsome Jedi. As he set you gently on the ground, he let one of his arms fall, but wove the other one around your arm in an escort like and gentlemanly manner.

He got back to the ship, Vex walked down the entrance plate of the shuttle, "Well did you find out where the kid is?"
His boots clanked on the boarding plate, "He's on Coruscant, in the Jedi Temple. I'm going to go have a word with the Grand Master and the Jedi Council." He then boarded the ship and it took off.

Jedi Padawan Garen Muln glanced up from where he was meditating (or pretending to) in the Temple's fountain garden, to see his best friend Obi-Wan Kenobi walking to him. "Did you say something, Obi-Wan?"
Obi-Wan shook his head and opened his mouth, to reply with a very loud "Hic!"

Ilum is one of the coldest and darkest planets in the galaxy. It is the home of buried dreams, crushed rebellions, and fallen heroes. Many warriors rose and fell on Ilum's surface to battles, betrayal, and nature's wrath. However, none of those fallen warriors have ever risen from the ice and snow. No one, that is, except one.
Among the corpses collected from Malgus' rebellion that were committed to the snow, a Sith pureblood took his first breath.

Letta Turmond sat in a state of perpetual sadness watching the events of the Jedi Temple bombing unfold on a projected screen in her apartment. She felt helpless and alone. Jackar's dedication to his cause was admirable, but it blinded him to the effects that it would have on his wife. A local news reporter's voice was the only thing keeping Letta from drowning in the silence of her apartment.
"The Jedi are still refusing to offer any statement on the explosion inside the Jedi Temple Hangar. Based on the military mobilization around the Galactic Senate building it is fair to assume that this was no accident. Many concerned citizens are beginning to gather at the steps of the Temple. Some appear to be protesting the war but most appear to be there out of concern for loved ones who may have been injured or killed in the explosion.

"Yes! Now, let me go!" Letta was done. This would be the last officer she'd even say a word to.

Over the course of an hour and a half and several drinks, Jackar Bowmani and Letta Turmond explained their situation. Jackar was dying. He had a genetic disease specific to abyssins with no known cure. Barriss struggled to accept that there was no medical avenue to take. She even tried using the Force to heal him, but his Abyssin anatomy was too complex and too badly damaged internally to save him. He only had a matter of days, but he managed to maintain a strong face. It is because of this illness that he was so willing to die when Barriss first met him. Jackar wanted to die for his cause. He wanted his death to have more meaning than his own timer being up.
So, Letta and Jackar devised a plot where Jackar would commit suicide by bombing the Jedi Temple. He would go straight to the Jedi Council Chamber while the Council was in session and blow up his bomb before anyone could stop him. Barriss listened to their entire plan, and then finally stopped biting her tongue. "This pl

It was also eerily quiet. The silence was broken only by the faint crunch of booted feet on sun-baked ground as a company of Royal Marine Commandos consisting of three twelve-man teams picked their way cautiously towards their target which, in this case, was a small village on the outskirts of Helmand Province.
Truthfully, "village" was something of a generous overstatement. It was really little more than a collection of mud huts, surrounded by a low stone wall with occasional patches of shrubbery dotted sparsely about.
A few weeks ago it had housed several dozen small families; then the insurgents had come. They'd rousted the villagers out of their homes in the middle of the night at gunpoint, shooting anyone who resisted - and a couple who didn't, just to make an example of them - kidnapped the eldest boys

The pain was unbearable. It wasn't such a pain that could be healed with bacta or quelled by counseling. The pain was a chronic consequence of emotional restraint. Jedi Padawan Learner Barriss Offee had spent her entire life learning how to control her emotions and focus her mind on only what she wanted to see; what she was supposed to see. It was her duty as a Jedi to take in the galaxy around her and participate in its events as a peacekeeper. However, it was also her duty to serve the Galactic Republic Senate and the Jedi Order. Never in her wildest dreams did she imagine her basic duties would ever contradict one another. It was beginning to come clear though that she could not continue down a path of ignorance when she was no longer blind to certain truths.

The Republic seems to have the advantage in capital ship combat, but the CIS has some equalizing advantages.
Many of the CIS warships are designed for mass production, and were designed for business scores not a full scale war. Many of the CIS leaders were cheap, and wouldnt spend the money for a traditional fleet. Only the Providences seem to be specifically designed for combat. The Lukrehulks are simply converted freighters with VERY strong shields and some turbolaser offensive capability., but with the sheer number of Turbolasers and the shield power added, with the fighter and troop compliment, a Lucrehulk is much a more battle-worthy ship than a carrier like a Venator (why it takes a flotilla to take them down).
