Lecture 1 Imperial Ground Tactics

Imperial Ground Tactics

<Fade In> A somewhat plump Sullustan Male sitting on a bunk aboard the Discovery. He seems to be playing with a pair of pistols…

“Well boys, look at the chrono, it is almost time for that Rebel Briefing that the Lady General will be attending.” With a slight flourish the pistols are holstered in a matched pair of quickdraw holsters. The Sullustan begins to walk down the corridors of the Discovery whistling a merry little tune, thoughts of how boring this lecture was going to be running through his head…

“I mean, who really cares about what standard Imperial Ground Tactics are? Never get out of the boat; that has always been my motto…”

Ahead of the Sullustan, down at the end of the corridor, a small group of beings are gathering outside one of the larger meeting rooms on the Discovery. As the Sullustan joins the group they all are led into the meeting room and the lecture starts.

A group of three humans (at least everyone is sitting down at this mission, makes it so much easier to see over their heads) stands up at the front of the room introducing themselves…

“Greetings, I am Fen bel Iblis, and this is Qualen and Choth. We will be leading the lecture on Imperial Ground Tactics. First off, who is familiar with the concept of the Imperial Sweep?”

With a yawn the Sullustan looks casually around the room, searching for someone it seems.

“There she is, the Lady General” he says under his breath.

The Sullustan seems to find it hard focusing on the lecture at hand; ground combat was never his thing after all. Who exactly cares if “AT-STs form the second Imperial echelon? These fast but well armored vehicles seek out the enemy’s front-line units and strive to strip the rebels of their leading forces. While not capable of direct engagement with main-battle vehicles, AT-STs are more than able to breach a rebel commander’s battle line and prepare the way for the Empire’s final drive to victory. Whatever!”

With a slight yawn, only barely covered by his hand, the Sullustan goes back to subtly watching the Lady General out of the corner of his large black eye.

Ah…a good part finally! It seems that this Qualen fellow is speaking about something to do with an Imperial General named Veers. This Qualen fellow, while human, seems like he knows what he is talking about when it comes to combat.

“AT-ATs are the Empire’s premiere ground assault forces. With their onboard Stormtroopers deployed for close-combat and perimeter security, these heavy walkers are able to smash the rebel’s weakened frontline with the concentrated firepower of heavy laser cannons. The AT-AT’s sheer size and massive armor allows the Imperial commander to directly attack the rebel’s remaining main-battle forces, and engage them in a direct contest for domination of the battlefield.”

And the lecture continues it seems…
“Wow, this is so not for me!” thinks the Sullustan. It seems even the Lady General is a little bored with it all as well. “Time to look for another way to serve the Rebellion it seems…"

After what seems like an eternity, and the countless little naps that were snatched, the lecture comes to a close. Vowing to never get out of the ship if he can help it, our little Sullustan joins the crowd headed out of the meeting room…

<Fade Out> The Sullustan has stopped to look at something posted on the Discovery’s Job Board…
