A short flight away from the Jedi Temple, Admiral Tarkin was interrogating his new prisoner, Letta Turmond, in a Republic detention facility. Letta was immensely frustrated by the same questions being asked over and over again by numerous people. Tarkin, however, was different. Letta barked at his initial questions of formality. "I already told you and the last three men! Jackar gave his life to make a statement! It was his plan!"
Tarkin smiled maliciously. "All of it was his plan and his doing. You just fed him the nanodroids at his request. Otherwise you're innocent. Correct?"
"Yes! Now, let me go!" Letta was done. This would be the last officer she'd even say a word to.
"Oh, you're not going anywhere, Miss Turmond. By that confession, you're still complicit in Jackar's actions and aided in the deaths of over a dozen lives. Enough on that though. I want to talk more about the plan of the attack." Tarkin slowly paced the small interrogation room, walking behind her and maint

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. Jedi Master Cin Drallig and a team of Jedi Temple Guardians are preventing the crowd from entering the Jedi Temple…"
Letta felt such sympathy f

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

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.
Every single time the Republic approached a situation in the Clone Wars, negotiation was treated like an annoying formality. So many respectable Jedi Masters would even complain about a lack of action. General Skywalk

"Hold him down!" Barriss shouted over the screams of a dying clone. A sulfuric geyser erupted right behind him. The flash of heat melted his helmet onto his head. Even though the clones wore flamethrower gear there was nothing to protect them from yellow magma bursts, lava flumes, and geysers that rained down a numerous amount of corrosive chemicals. Sullust would be a dead planet had it not once been a lush, vibrant world.
When the Sullustans mined too close to the planet core a chain reaction occurred that covered the entire planet in ash and bright yellow lava. The Sullustans endured the calamity by living underground and continued to mine. The Separatists wanted the resources of those mines and knew exactly how to give every droid the advantage in battle. They seized control and quickly set up defenses on every surface to sub-level entry point. If the Republic was going to liberate the Sullustans, they would have to do so on foot and on the surface.

'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

A few Jedi Temple personnel were beginning to fill the halls along with Jedi of every rank. The Temple was waking up. It was almost as if there was no war. Of course, the presence of clone troopers and Republic military officers pushed away any sort of delusion of peace. Barriss was hoping to remain reclusive for the day to get her thoughts in order. She grabbed a quick meal in the Jedi Temple mess hall before heading back to the Padawan Dormitory section of the Temple. She felt out of sorts and unbalanced. Hoping against hope, she headed for Ahsoka Tano's room in search of a friend.
Barriss approached the door and casually rang the doorbell almost expecting no answer. She was becoming numb to the disappointment of Ahsoka always being off world. Much to her surprise, the door opened. Barriss' eyes lit up with a spark of life that she hadn't felt in months. A smile quickly stretched from ear to ear as she entered. Her smile vanished just as quickly as it appeared when she saw

Damn it, they were being annihilated out here, that was the third ship that the Death Star had claimed since its activation had been revealed. This was insane, they couldn't fight out here like this!

Some of you already know these fighters, you've seen them being flown by escort squadrons and other select units. Well the Rebels use them too and they're just as dangerous in their hands as in ours. Armaments are the same, and they'll make short work of your standard TIE so tackle them in groups.
These things are Clone Wars tech, like a lot of the Rebel arsenal. They've aged decently though and can be tough in the hands of experienced pilots. Armed with two triple laser cannons you really don't want to be in front of one of these if you're flying a craft without shields.
The original Y-wing starfighter fought in the Clone Wars, there have been several variants since then and the Rebels use a lot of them. They're tough, with powerful shields and armor and carry a decent armament with torpedo launchers and an internal bomb bay.

Any way new chapter hope you like it and this one will be based on the padawan lost episode. I have also noticed that I made a little mistake, in the first chapter said I that this story starts at the time line of the EP *The Citadel* season 3 and that's after Asajj tried to kill Dooku, so just so you know Asajj is still Dooku's assassin.
Ahsoka was looking out of the window at her cabin, in the fully repaired Resolute. There has gone two months sense the peace meeting went all wrong. She hadn't seen or heard anything about Galen, no reports, no death, nothing, and it scared Ahsoka, maybe Dooku killed him, she had no idea, but she had to keep her hope up.
Ahsoka was fully recovered from her inures, she was actually fully recovered weeks ago, but her master was worried for her, so she had been stationed at the temple for nearly a month.
