SWTCW: Wrath of Revan 1War continues throughout the galaxy. The Confederacy's forces are slowly stretching thin; the tide of the war belongs to the Republic. However, corruption spreads across the galaxy like a plague. Citizens, military officers, and even senators go to desperate measures to gain more wealth by joining both sides of the war. Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, investigate at the Republic Senate building to find any corrupted senators.SWTCW: Wrath of Revan 14 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Anakin and Ahsoka stop by Padmé Amidala's office to find any clues. Padmé was sitting at her desk when she noticed the duo coming in. They came to her desk to greet her.
"Anakin, Ahsoka," she said, "What can I do for you?"
"We heard rumors that there are corrupted senators in this building," Anakin spoke.
"It's seems that some are working in both sides of the war to fill their pockets with money," Ahsoka spoke.

Twin suns raised on the Media planet and along with them, live began to wake up as well. Obi-Wan greeted the sunrise with pleasure and relief, because that meant they would finally take off of this terrible planet. Taking into consideration that Media was one of the uncivilized world in Outer Rim, they spent around two weeks in the thick jungle to find some kind of rare animal that escaped from the experiment lab, and now Obi-Wan, instead of admiring the beautiful views, was scratching something that felt like thousands and thousands of bug bites. He cursed under his breath, walking after his master, who seemed strangely unaffected. They were supposed to leave yesterday, however, ship that was to take them hadn't appeared, but thank Force, master Jinn contacted the captain and here he was. To his relief, Obi-Wan noticed space ship sitting on a large meadow, still with its engines working and ready to fly. Master Jinn laughed with a good natured tease, when boy had run eag

Star Wars - The Weak Will Perish
The tremor that passed through Darth Sear's vessel told him that he had landed on the planets surface. He was excited. Despite the fierce battle being fought over head, he had felt the Jedi break off from the republic fleet and make his way down here. What was so important, that the republic would allow such a powerful asset to abandon them mid battle? The Sith lord wanted to find out. Mostly, he wanted to test himself against the so called might of the Jedi. He had only ever encountered the Jedi once before. A Padawan. His master had slain him with ease. Now it would be his turn. The exit ramp slowly began its descent, revealing the grey sandy surface of the planet. Darth Sear walked out into a sand storm. This was of little consequence to the Sith, considering his cybernetic eyes. He scanned his surroundings, the darkening sky lit up with the fire of battle, his dark robes violently fluttering in the wind. He f

This is the happiest day of my life.
I know I said it yesterday.
And the day before that.
And the day before that.
Because every day is the best day of my life.
Everyday I wake to you Padmé,
Lying with your arm around me.
Reminding me of all I rescued,
All I treasure in life.
And the two greatest treasures are waking.
Such a suprise in the face of danger.
Two! Not one! Two!
Luke and Leia we called them,
Born the day after the day of victory.
I killed Palpatine.
I don't dwell on it.
He was the Sith lord
And I killed him to save you.
I felt strong that day.
I saved everyone,
Forfilled the prophecy,
The chosen duties over.
I can look after my family,
Here on sweet Naboo,
Where no Sith nor anger can touch us.
You never died like my dreams protrayed.
What did I do right?
No. Never will I think it.
Only you and our babies.
You're sound asleep as I pick them up,
Take them to the garden,
Sit by the lake and hold them as they wake fully.
Their wide innocent eyes look up and see me,

A beam of sunlight shone through the four large windows that surrounded the Council Chambers. In the middle of the room, standing above the broad circle on the floor, stood a man. He had wispy brown hair which fell right below his shoulders, and intelligent blue eyes that met the gazes of each and every one of the human's and humanoids sitting in the chairs around the circle; the chairs were designed for their specific species. Not only was this man's appearance a shock to the Council, for he was supposed to be away on a mission with his Padawan, who was only at the age of fourteen - wh

'I trusted you! I stood by you!'
Ahsoka Tano never doubted that she did the right thing by walking away from the Jedi Order, but she couldn't stop thinking about everything she was leaving behind. She walked for hours contemplating every detail. It wasn't before too long that she realized how much of an impulsive decision she had made. Yes, she did the right thing, but she did so with no plans for the future. She didn't even know where to sleep. All she had was a few credits in the pouch on her belt. She had enough to probably get a cheap room for the night, but then what?
She had to trust in the Force to guide her. Ahsoka knew this journey wouldn't be an easy one. Before turning down one of the many crowded city walkways of Coruscant, Ahsoka turned to take

Obi-Wan sighed and came back to the real world, emerging from meditation as if he had all the time of the universe, which obviously, he didn't. However, today again master Jinn dismissed him earlier from their class, explaining that at age of nearly sixteen, Obi-Wan should take his time and socialize with someone his age, to create friendships and acquaintances. There was no point in proving him wrong, that Obi-Wan really doesn't need to, doesn't want to and doesn't care to create such things, and his friends are limited to Bant and Reef, because master Jinn usually showed then his young, very stubborn side, which always amazed his Padawan. Of course, he couldn't blame his Master for such attempt - he knew that every Master may want to have a time free from taking care of their Padawans, but still, it somehow annoyed him. No that the idea itself was bad, no. But the problem was, that right now, when Reef was on a mission with his Master since last month and Bant has just g

Star Wars: The Clone Wars
"The Republic stands battered by the turmoil of war. The height of the conflict has passed with the failed Separatist plunge against the capital system, Coruscant. The CIS forces are faltering, the Clone army surges fourth in every direction, the Senate remains locked, and Chancellor Palpatine's power grows limitless.
The influence of the Jedi has become even more transparent whilst the war wanes. Their numbers spread thin. The order exists on the brink of annihilation. Lesser skilled Jedi are pushed into battle. The costs grow. The populace has lost faith in the Jedi to restore order.
Even now as clone troopers comb through the damaged planet, hunting isolated pockets of stranded CIS droids, a number of cruisers bring detachments of the 501st back to Coruscant under direct orders. The planet is eerily silent. For the first time in the conflict the Jedi see a light through the cloudy haze..

The Corvettes serve mostly as primary patrol craft, with an maximal endurance of one month, while mostly the departures only last for one or two weeks during peacetime, while they usually have a supply ship around in wartime. Corvettes patrol the more secure, inner systems of the Alliance territory and hunt down smugglers and weakly armed pirates without fighters. The Mercury for example carries a flight of five fighters occasionally, and the two light PACs and the Mass Driver turrets as well are enough to threat every non military pirate ship and unfortified smuggler/ pirate station. However, if the enemy is ready to defend himself, the Corvette is rather underarmed. In wartime the Corvette is used for quick wolf-pack strikes, either out of jumps or from gas planets or asteroid fields.

The Emissary and Ambassador classes share intertwined origins. As the Excelsior class fleet aged, Starfleet sought a replacement capable of exceeding its proven performance, range and reliability, and in 2305, specifications were first outlined for a heavy cruiser, larger and more powerful than any prior commissioned vessel. Two new class concepts were submitted three years later (by the space architecture bureau behind the Excelsior and Oberth, and that of the Constitution, Miranda and Constellation, respectively), remarkably similar in scale, but strikingly different in detail.
It was an even contest. The Emissary concept was a cutting edge, elegant design, built around the latest advances in warp architecture and propulsion, far advanci
