Kian watched the younger Jedi as he spoke, his face passive. It appeared Kaleleon did not have training in flying. Kian was surprised, given the skill of his master in the art - but not bothered by it. Kian was a capable pilot but it was not something he enjoyed. Many Jedi over the years had been exceptional pilots and truly enjoyed it. For Kian it had always been a necessary skill to learn and nothing more. Aside from dogfights, he let his droids pilot for him.
"Nothing to worry about," Kian said nodding his head, "I made an assumption - my apologies. We can have the droid take us in. Help with navigation and monitoring for anything suspicious." Striding up the loading ramp into the shuttle, Kian quickly took a seat in one of the chairs and leaned forward - instructing the droid to take them to the rendezvous point.
"Once we've gotten there," Kian said strapping in as the ship lifted off and existed the larger vessel, "We will be disembarking the ship and moving across the surface. I hope you're ready for a nice stroll in vacuum." Kian said smiling beneath his mask. He wondered if the young man had ever had to engage in such an operation before. Kian certainly had not at his age. As a Kel Dor, Kian benefited with the ability to withstand the vacuum of space for a short period of time but he wouldn't be chancing it today. "We can suit up once we are there."
Kian closed his eyes and focused his mind - stretching out across the darkness of space as they propelled toward their destination. He did not doubt that the stealth systems on the ship would do the job, but he was still worried. Kian had been a Jedi Shadow for a long time and that tended to bread paranoia. "Have you ever faced off against a darkside user Jedi Seleare?" Kian asked opening his eyes and turning his attention back toward the younger Jedi. Kian was earnestly curious, it was not a questioning of his abilities and he hoped that his presence in the force would make that clear. Turning toward the readouts on the screen, Kian was pleased to see the other forces were commencing with their attack. They would draw much attention - Kian just hoped it wasn't going to be costly in terms of losses. He always hated watching soldiers die, though having the pleasure of serving with many over the years he was aware that they did not hesitate to do so when it was called upon them.
After what felt like an eternity, the vessel settled down at its location and Kian rose to his feet. "Come," Kian said beckoning with his hand, "The suits are aft." Leading the way toward the back of the ship, Kian quickly threw a suit over his robes and attached a large helmet designed for Kel Dor use. There were other suits there for Kaleleon to use - humans were always easiest to accommodate. Kian waited until the other Jedi was ready and then pressed the button to lower the ramp. As Kian's memory reminded him, the eeriest part of vacuum was not the vastness of the space around you or the cold biting at your body despite the warmth of the suit. No, the worst part was the silence. Stepping down the ramp into the void of space, Kian steeled his will and pressed himself forward.
