Rico turns to the Bantha's copilot, "Vrei, you seem acquainted with city above, at least somewhat?"

"Excellent. We're heading topside. But first I have to get a credit chit. I handed mine to the rest of the team before you dropped them off."

Rico then heads off in search of Colonel Taske.

Rico moves around the base for a while exploring his new surroundings. Finding what appears to be a command center he inquires of the guard if Colonel Taske is available. The guard steps inside and returns a few minutes later with the Colonel. "I was not expecting that you would be able to leave so quickly. We have not received any new intelligence."

"I apologize for disturbing you, Colonel. I'm not ready to leave yet, Ma'am. Far from it, in fact. I came to see you because I've run into a small problem that I'm hoping you can resolve, Ma'am. Your quartermaster seems very efficient, and she has a sufficient quantity of most of the supplies I requested. But your stock of parts usable for the modification of weapons is greatly depleted, and Carga informs me that she is fully occupied with handling the transfer of materiel from the evac'd base and arranging to set up a new facility. She is unwilling to spare any personnel or time to send someone to the city above and acquire the components I seek, and I understand and appreciate the situation she is in. But that doesn't stop me from doing so myself, with your permission of course, Ma'am. In addition to being allowed to go on such a 'shopping' expedition, I'll need a few thousand credits to purchase the parts. Whatever parts I don't use will go into your inventory, and unused credits will be returned. Since I know nothing of the city above, I was planning to have Vrei be my guide, along with anyone else that you think I should bring along. Ma'am."

"Lieutenant Sunfell will accompany you and can make purchases. I'll have her sent to you once our current situation is resolved. Now if you'll excuse me I must be getting back inside." The colonel replies with a slight tone of urgency in her voice.

Rico will kill time until Lt. Sunfell shows up by vacuum-sealing his armor, and helping to haul supplies aboard the Bantha.

Shortly before leaving the base to assist with loading supplies Veri stops Rico and reminds him to remove his rank insignia. Several hours later Lieutenant Sunfell, now in civilian clothes typical for her species, meets up with Rico and Veri at the Bantha. "I heard you wish to go shopping. Might I suggest we begin at the Roughneck Junkyard. They have a large assortment of items at a much better price than you will find elsewhere. Assuming you are not opposed to second-hand equipment."

Rico smiles, "I'm a Rebel, Lieutenant. Second-hand equipment is a way of life. If I cared about having shiny new gear I never would have left my job working in Imperial R&D. Let's go."

An hour or so before your scheduled departure you are summoned once again to the briefing room. This time Colonol Taske, Lt. Sunfell, and the crew of the Big Bantha join you, along with the two pilots who loaned you their astromech droid for your equipment modifications. "Durian Chasta and Kriel Draykon were called in to assist with the identification of the fighter extracted from the droid's memory. It has been identified as one of Abel squadron's fighters shot down during an operation several months ago and presumed destroyed. Chasta and Draykon will be joining you on your operation with orders to recover or destroy any Alliance craft in the hands of the empire."

Rico replies, "This changes the mission profile. Not the pilots coming along. They're welcome. It's why they're coming. If there is the possibility that the Y-wing survived then there is also the possibility that its pilot also survived, and may be held prisoner. That makes this also a rescue mission, in addition to its other facets. The extra personnel also mandate that we bring along additional medical supplies. One box of stims should suffice."

Hearing Rico's questions Draykon begins to elbow Chasta in the side. Chasta, for his part, is turning several shades of red from embarrassment before speaking up. "I was the pilot of that particular craft. I ejected and was picked up by Draykon before we withdrew from the system."

"We do not believe there are any prisoners at the facility. Nevertheless, I will notify the doctor to provide you with a box of stims before you leave." The colonel continues.

Rico see the crew of the Bantha and the two new pilots loading the last of the equipment as he arrives. The new droid sits dormant near the loading ramp waiting to be activated. "The ship will be ready in a few minutes and will depart on your order," The captain says, as he carries another crate into the ship.

The droid's eyes light up and it straightens its back before looking at Rico. "I am G2-3T, fifth degree labor droid. Do you need me to repair this antiquated heap?" The droid says pointing to the Bantha.

"Hello Jeetoo. I am Rico Solari, your new master. We need to clarify a few things. First, that vessel is the 'Big Bantha', and you will refer to it by that designation, and never again by 'antiquated heap', even though your assessment is accurate. Second, aren't you a repair droid, and thus second degree?"

Rico is unimpressed with his new droid's arrogance, "Modest, also, aren't you? Please use your ... abilities and board the Bantha. We'll be leaving shortly." Now I know why Carga was able to pry him away from whomever was stuck with him. She knew what this droid was like.

The droid boards the Bantha and moves to the storage area along with the astromech belonging to the pilots and the cargo droid. After the final materials are loaded Rico gives the signal to the captain and the ship takes off. An hour or so later they make the jump to hyperspace on their way back to Nar Shaddaa. Rico uses this opportunity to avail himself of some much needed sleep, waking just an hour before the ship's arrival. Moving to the cockpit he observes the exit from hyperspace and chats before they land at the same location they dropped off the team a few days earlier.
