Unenthused..LucasArts has been effectively liquidated.. These days I find it nearly impossible to write Clone Wars stories thanks to the long stream of continuous shitty news that continues to pour fourth after this merger. I hoped Lucas didn't surrender every freaking company..but 1313 and the precursor to the beloved Battlefront game have been cancelled.
FML! Uhg.. well if anyone has inspiring art or thoughts, I'd love to see or hear it.
Hope all of you are doing well!
May the force be with you!

"A leader is a dealer in hope."
Beams of light shone brightly through the thick Kaminoan skies. A very rare sight to be seen thought the republic officer, having recently arrived after receiving a direct order to the planet by Chancellor Palpatine himself. Standing alone on the wet platform looking towards the sky, a low rumbling could be heard in the distance. From the clouds burst the hulls of several Acclamator Class Cruisers. Their low rumbling rowing into thunderous roars as they near the platforms, lowering both tremendous landing gear and ramps.
A small white blur of a trooper slowly paced down the ramp of the nearest cruiser. His helmet different from any other the officer had seen prior, "Captain Rex I presume? It is an honor to finally meet you. Major Haide Valhallen sir." Rex removes his helmet, "I've heard of your exploits major.

"War is an uneasy business. Escape it when you can."
The three officers continued down the luminescent corridors of Timira City. Every element of the hall was white to human eyes with slight hints of blue, pink, and pink hues. As the door before them swirled open, it divided into three segments; the first curling to the ceiling while the other swiftly slid down into their positions within the floor.
The Clone Wars: Changing Tide -- Volume 3.5 -- Vallen finished snapping the last of his armor plates on his shoulder, walking into the armory. A clone and Kaminoan quartermaster saluted. "I see you already have your sidearm Major. Anything else?"The Clone Wars: Changing Tide -- Volume 3.5 --2 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
With his helmet held beneath one arm, "A rifle with ascension cable attachment if you please."
Quickly pulling one off the rack the quarter master snapped on the shoulder strap and handed the weapon over the counter.
"Thank you sirs as always."
In response the clone quartermaster excitedly yelled "Make em eat laser sir!"
The final door between Vallen and the rain maelstroms of Kamino slid gracefully open. The white corridor clashing with the dark, gray blue hues outside. Watching the torrent unfold before him, Vallen pulled his bonnet over his head while securing his blasters sling over his shoulder. Looking up the behemoth structure of the cruiser Formidable towered over the platform. As he approached closer, drops of rain halted their attack upon his armor, bei

"To succeed in war, you must know your army as well as yourself."
The shadows of Vallen's dreams quickly receded as he rolled over within his bunk to deactivate the alarm. Beeping instantly being silenced by the swift application of force to the button. "If you're that swift on the battlefield…I think we'll be in luck if anything goes wrong." Rex said climbing from an elevated bunk. Vallen rose up, the data-pad being used to plan out the mission slid down his chest landing back in his hand as the other rubbed his eye. He had spent many hours the previous night, organizing the orders to be dispersed upon arriving at Ator.
Halifax's bed was already vacant. "Good morning to you as well captain" Vallen suggested as

The bass of the music could be heard from some distance as the officers approached the club. When they finally reached the door it promptly opened belching music towards the officers.
A pair of clones carrying a third appeared through the flashing, strobbing lights. "Commanders on deck!" shouted one, snapping to attention which was a little awkward while holding up the weight of the clone in the center. The other followed suit, helping the third into position solely for the fact he was in-between. "Major, Might as well get through introductions now..
I present to you, your flight crew." Halifax said with his arm extended, his palm open towards the three. "The pilot, Valkier", a spitfire and sharp looking trooper who had a knack for running close air support

Order 66: 327th Star Corp: Commander Bly
We are soldiers and we have orders.
General Secura has led us valiantly from the start of this conflict.
Through dark mountains to fluorescent marshes, from Acklay to battle droids;
She has saved my life countless times and I hers.
Pacification is our mission and our mission is on Felucia.
My hologram projector pinged --
“Execute order 66” it said.
My training is clear,
I am a soldier and I have my orders.
On patrol we scouted ahead of the column.
She approached the crest of the hill,
the planet seemed to go silent..
No ambient plants, no animals, no droids.
Thankfully we had on our helmets that day.
None of us could stand to look her in the eye; until she began to turn.
My rifle already fixed upon her back; my eyes met her glance,
Before her instinct could react we pulled our triggers.
We kept firing..
we kept firing hoping to quicken her end.
It was quicker than the inquisition that would soon come;
quicker than a life lived in a c

:Exodus of Ara-ty Nokta:
The three hulking engines of the Consular-class Cruiser, Constitution, heavily vibrated as it decelerated from the safe blue haze of hyperspace. Now at a slight hum, the ship slid effortlessly through space. Aboard was relatively young Jedi Guardian who had excelled through the faceless guardian ranks; his name Shakkra Kien. With him were a number of Jedi auxiliaries who were often sent with a Jedi to support them in unstable situations.
Their mission, far from routine, was to Jabiim. A civil war has ripped apart the northern hemisphere as warring factions fight over raw resourc

"For a plan to succeed, you must dedicate yourself fully, or it will falter."
"I've found the Jedi! …sir?..I've ..the ..Jed.." Boomer's com channel faded in and out.
Running towards the towering edifice of the parliament building, centered in the courtyard, Vallen twisted around, waving his arm to follow suit, "Hotsh and Volley squad, on me!" They grouped near the entrance. He crawled over one of the walls that were waist height, the squad quickly closed in. Looking upwards the atrium of the lobby within the government building was tremendous.
Glancing across the space, he found bodies of clones who had died where they fought. Volley squad spread throughout the room investigating what they could. Vallen knelt to

“Regard your soldiers as your children,
and they will follow you into the deepest valleys;
look on them as your own beloved sons,
and they will stand by you even unto death.”
“Reform! Reform on your positions!” various clone officers shouted to their men. The troops hurried back to the trench. Meanwhile, cumbersome AT- TE’s began their march backwards once again.
Clone bomb technicians swiftly patrolled the fields and positions for un-exploded enemy ordinance from the bombardment. Standing before the trench, Halifax stood before his troops as most descended into the dirt. Several approached their hands firmly met by his. Silently his eyes looked through his view plate at the wounded and dead strewn across the hills. Noticing most of

"For a plan to succeed, you must dedicate yourself fully, or it will falter."
The blue, white of hyperspace brought a silent calm as time and distance became fused. Vallen enjoyed the darkness of space, but this brightly lit chaos blasting past the Acclamator made him leery. Uncertainty lied in wait on the other end of that hyperspace lane. Throughout the Clone Wars, a poor or unlucky exit from a hyperspace lane allowed the Separatists to get the jump on Republic forces, smashing them to oblivion.
Space or ground, Vallen and Rex were ready to take the fight upon the enemy.
Standing at the viewing platform on
The Clone Wars: Changing Tide -- Volume 9.5 -- Flak’s helmet dropped. A blue bolt shot through his window. It shattered as he used both hands to punch through the cracked canopy. As Flak fell from his seat to the broken ground he let out a cry of immense pain which he muted beneath his arm. His leg slowly bled from beneath the plating.The Clone Wars: Changing Tide -- Volume 9.5 --2 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
“Shit! That is probably my new least favorite crash..”
Valkier kneeling by his co-pilot, continued to check their surroundings. “Can you walk?”
Flak straightened his arms and began to push up. Shaking his head, “I can feel it bending beneath my weight captain. The damn thing is broken!”
A few meters away, shifting rubble sounded as though a wheel was rolling over pebbles. From behind a heap of debris the rolling ball turret became vaguely visible.
Glass panels fell out as a clone boot forcefully kicked. Crawling from the frame, the trooper ran to the mass that was Thunder 01. The light illuminated the bright green gunner paint on his armor
The Clone Wars: Changing Tide -- Volume 4.5 --"We've cleared the atmosphere sir!" Valkier's voice came through the gunship speakers as he opened the flak doors. "No contacts?" Vallen asked curiously. "None."The Clone Wars: Changing Tide -- Volume 4.5 --2 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Raising Halifax and Rex on the comlink, "Execute tactical insertion order No. 2." The planning Vallen had spent so much time plotting before leaving was coming into use. With space secure, any more reinforcements would come with ease if needed. The flurry of gunships separated as they followed their orders. Company A continuing toward the capital districts, Company B setting up a nearby headquarters/ staging area while most of Company C stayed airborne on reserve, scouting for signs of the mysterious red blur from the briefing.
Thunder squadron's gunships hauled into the main citadel. Valkier's voice again came through the speaker, "Good hunting!! Green light in 3..2..1..GO GO GO!" The heaping doors wrenched open. ATTE's touched down in a defensive arc in front of the Citadel in the main plaza. The clone troopers ran or jumped
