When he hears Obi-Wan call Qui-Gon Master, it is as if the ship has lurched beneath him; he has been terribly nowhat slaver would go through such an elaborate ruse to capture one boy, even a top racer? And he can sense the rightness, as surely as if he were beholding the wonders of the Jedi Temple already. (He is not sure what those wonders are, as mostly when he imagined Jedi they were flying or fighting, but right now the air seems as imbued with promise as with oxygen.)
So he assesses Obi-Wan again, and sees a man younger, less scarred, than Qui-Gons example had lead him to imagine Jedi to be; were he raised in Mos Espa, Anakin thought, Obi-Wan would be...what? A gambler, a farmer, a vagrant? He does not seem to fit any of those molds. On Tatooine, anyone with such...such a shy sort of politeness, paired with the authority and skill shown by the fact he carried a lightsaber, would be left alone.
Obi-Wan was waiting when Anak
Something to Hold OntoAtton was leaning back against a wall at the entrance to one of Nar Shaddaa's innumerable and crowded alleyways with his arms crossed across his chest and his eyes half closed. To the casual observer he appeared to be just another bored spacer, lounging around and waiting for... something. Unfortunately for him, he wasn't having to work too hard to make his affectation believable. He almost wished that the seedy looking Exchange thug that kept eyeing him would pick a fight just so he could add some excitement to his day.Something to Hold Onto6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
She owes me for this, he thought to himself, mentally adding this outing to the growing tally of favors owed to him by the Jedi Exile. He couldn't stop from grinning as he pictured his plan of collecting on the debt involving a bottle of juma and Lilli in that little dancer's outfit.
Yeah, well you won't collect on anything if you don't pay attention, his voice of reason cut in, reminding him that he was supposed to be watching out for any trouble that th

Directly in their path
His blade raised high
Strong and unyielding he stands
A pillar of strength
Illuminated by the force
Flowing through his every muscle
As they approach he firmly says
'None shall pass'
They keep coming
One after the next
Thousands of warriors
Ever ready to send him to his fate
And yet he holds fast
'None shall pass'
Time fades into eternity
Any moment could be his last
But this right here
This was who he was
Standing in the corridor of his destiny
Everything leading up to this
Never faltering, never wavering
'None shall pass'
The end or the beginning
It makes no difference to him
He is both here and nowhere
The energy passing through him
It has become him
Fully aware and yet distant
He knows only his purpose
'None shall pass'
As his burning light fades away
He does not fail
As his breath escapes his lips
Forever burning in his lungs
A single thought takes him away
Becoming one with the force
He burns the words li

1. Every time someone screams, take a shot.
2. Every time someone says “Space Marines” take a shot.
3. Every time they talk about chaos take a shot.
4. Every time you see or hear “Know No Fear” take a shot.

The Thing in the AquariumI have always enjoyed aquariums. There are few things more relaxing than looking at brightly coloured fish as they move gracefully through their tanks. There is so much beauty in the depths of the oceans. Yet it was in an aquarium that I saw the most terrifying and disturbing sight of my life, a sight that revealed to me the madness that lies so close to the world we inhabit.The Thing in the Aquarium2 years ago in Horror More Like This
I was on holiday in a town on the south coast, not far from Brighton. Though it was summer, the weather was atrocious and spending any time outdoors was imprudent. Of course our English seaside towns cater well for all weather patterns and there were plenty of things to do out of the rain. Among these was a visit to the small aquarium.
I have visited many aquariums and I have been scuba diving in several tropical reefs. I count myself as having a reasonable amateur knowledge of marine biology. Yet I was struck by how many species in this aquarium I did not recognise. Many of the specimens in the tanks had an oddly

My security office is the tidiest place on the entire station. No offense to the Starfleet officers in OPS, but sometimes, the sense for order gets lost up there. I know how to keep myself busy without causing a mess. Even on quiet days, as rare as they are. Sometimes, I just sit here and watch the promenade through my door. Study people, analyze them, memorize certain ways of moving or body language. It can be extremly helpful in criminal investigations to know such routines. Humanoids are not all alike; different species give away lies and half truths differently. Bolians never really blush, for example, while it only takes a strategically placed comment about a suspected white lie to make a Kobheerian blush pink and confess crimes he only heard about.
There is only one thing all humanoids have in common. They all remind me that I am not like them. That all I can do is immitate them, act like them, talk like

He sees black stripes on a yellow face; hooked, tan horns; orange eyes. He sees black armor like the shell of a turtle. This must be another animal, come to fight Maul for his nest. Maul shivers all over, readying himself to get up. He arcs like a cat. He tastes the air with his teeth and his tongue. It smells like ashes and fire, but it always does. Maybe, somewhere, there's the tang of speeder exhaust from above, and something electrical.
The creature talks to him. The voice is deep, and the words, garbled. It has shoved its way into his den, and sniffed while it looked at his scrap metal and his fire and his drawings. It is a big, wide-shouldered creature.
Maul has trouble with words sometimes. He remembers that they used to be easy for him, but now they seem to stick and repeat instead of forming into new shapes quickly. The shapes of letters seem to have color and sound of their own.

A speeder abruptly lands upon the landing platform,
"There's been a rebellion!" - "Sir, Its time for you to leave" my sergeant stated,
Pacing forward since I did not recognize his uniform,
Troopers of the 501st working hard to finish the perimeter they created.
For hours we pacified the Jedi,
After fighting a war along their side,
Their positions of peace only a lie,
Our numbers swelled as one by one they fell and died.
"GET HIM!" I heard shouted from behind,
The familiar hum and slash of a saber resonated so close,
A young Jedi cut through a trooper's arm, another's leg, my rifle..then MY chest.
The searing of flesh left me speechless with only my teeth to grind,
My men charging forward shooting him from his toes,
Down he fell ...much like all the rest.
Laying on the cold floor,
Silence except for the breath in my helmet,
These Jedi I've come to deplore,
My eyes grow heavy though..but we've surpassed this gauntlet.

Loss of ControlJagged Fel rushed to unstrap himself from his sim seat. He had just taken out the last Rogue and wanted to see who it was. It wasn't Rogue Lead, Darklghter was the second to last Rogue to get killed. Darklighter flew with an obvious style; decades of experience coupled with a hard grace. No, the last Rogue seemed fairly inexperienced. Whoever he was, he flew with an astounding amount of raw talent. What's more, he learned quickly and could make his X-wing dance. With a little more experience, he could even shoot me down. That Rogue had won Jagged's respect from flying alone, which was a difficult thing to do.

A pair of liquid silver eyes blinked slowly, taking in the scene before them with interest and otherworldly detachment.
The voice was soft, as it always was, despite the gruff sound it had. She felt her heart beat faster, her eyes unable to focus on a single thing, everything was moving so fast. There were so many lives counting on her, so many people who looked to her for guidance, and once more, she took the place as leader on the field of battle. She looked around at the faces looking up at her, Carth Onasi, Bastila Shan, Canderous Ordo, Mission Vao, Zaalbar, Juhani, Jolee Bindo, the faithful droids HK-47 and T3-M4.
And now, two new faces joined their circle. One belonging to a woman she had never expected to see again in her entire life. It was Breena, standing there, in the flesh, those silvery blue eyes gazing up at her with same loyalty they had held when she had decided to march them off to war. They were both different people entirely now, but she suspected Breena's

She can't be gone, she can't be. She's mandokarla, she's proven that time and again. Tough, atin, resourceful, if anyone can make it through, it's her. I berate myself for thinking the worst, even though the logical part of my brain is telling me it's right to prepare. Logic be damned. Either we both leave alive, or neither of us do. Another explosion rocks the ship, not long now. Something strange was happening, maybe it was the lack of oxygen I was getting into my bucket, or maybe the gravity generator had ramped up with the last explosion, but it felt like I was running through syrup, every step getting harder.

Yes, Captain. Spock nodded. His thoughts are chaotic, unreadable, and above all highly emotional.
Is this sort of mental breakdown common among Vulcans? Bones asked.
It is completely unheard of. Since I can not understand his thoughts it is impossible to tell what drove him to this extreme.
What are all the possible causes?
The main suspects would be: disease, radiation poisoning, or some form of extreme torture.
Torture? Bones asked in alarm.
By the time you have gone far enough to break a Vulcan they are truly broken and no use to any one. Spock replied calmly. It is not a logical use of time, but perhaps someone who h

After finishing up with the class K planet they were now heading through the vastness of space towards a peace treaty signing between to waring worlds that the Federation had agreed to mediate.
Kirk sat in the Captain's chair staring out the front view screen at the stars that slowly moved past them. It was around shift change time, but he had no intention of leaving the bridge. It wasn't that the Enterprise needed him sitting here, he simply didn't have anywhere better on the ship to be. He glanced over at the empty spot where Spock was usually staring at the sensors.

Taking a deep breath Spock concentrated on stopping the trembling in his hands, but nothing could be done for it.
It is still a reasonable trade. Spock muttered to himself.
The Vulandin drug gave him the reins on his emotions once again. The price he was paying for mental control was a disabling physical sickness. Exhausted from the mostly unproductive heaving Spock walked back over to the bed and sat down. He stared at the far wall and contemplated his options.
There was no point in further demanding to be returned to the Enterprise. Although time was difficult to determine between the sunless room and the frequent black outs Spock assumed that at lea

Fixing targets within my scope,
felling droids with each subtle squeeze of my trigger.
My boot souls cling to the wooden bark as we spring our plan into action,
Outlying branches come alive with elite snipers springing from concealment;
a relentless blue shower of bolts fall upon the droids vacating the waters with little hope.
The struggle for Kashyyyk nears the high water mark,
as trooper, wookie, and droid a like; fire volley after volley.
I stand tall above both sand and leaf,
the beach covered.. strewn with carcass, pelt, mangled debris, and smoke
peace for this planet wouldn't arrive with the coming dark.
The battle wears on with no shortage of thunderous bursts;
muted blasts fall within crystallizing grains of sand.
The struggle for the beach rages even towards its end;
a growing maelstrom of contorted armor and smoldering crafts litter the field.
Looking down to the Juggernaut mounted by General Vos, the enemy falls back
