#1752856 A Modicum of Grave Robbing and Tinkering

Posted by Vanessa Vantai on Yesterday, 01:53 AM

"So long as there is a 'pure' copy of their genes pre-mutation - or a pure copy of their or a comparable species' genes." She replied. "I initially attempted to use alchemical means, but the issue with that was the Dark Side kept causing corruption to the host bodies. I settled for a purely technological means - reprogrammed retroviral cocktails. They're far more effective without any Force assistance." She said. "Like... Let me suggest a way that this could alter you for the better. I'm sure that as a Zeltron, you have people who automatically think you're a thigh-opening, pheromone-abusing, double-jointed sex addict because they have shallow minds and don't realize you're a cold, cunning, calculating and highly skilled doctor. Now take away the pink skin - and boom. No one knows, and no moron makes such a shallow assumption. With a sample of your DNA, and comparison of it with other near-human and human genomes, it is possible for me to change the color of your skin to, well... whatever shade you want, potentially."


She thought for a moment. "Zeltron pigmentation comes from the species' long-term adaptation to the radiation of their star. By focusing on the gene that generates that pigmentation and replacing it with genes from, say, a human, it would be possible for you to, over several hours, have your entire skin change to a more human-like coloration, without affecting any of your other traits." She shrugged. "Again, just a final thought on demonstrating it to you personally - if not, I would still be more than happy to give you access to the basic formulation for your practice. Simply send me information from a blood sample, tell me what the patient needs, and I will provide you a custom-made vial of GenDestruct that should handle whatever issues they have."

"Oh, a powerful design made while maintaining the traditional Hapan aesthetic? Of course." She said, smiling. "I would be more than glad to manufacture such for the Hapans, the Free Worlds Coalition - and far more." This was the opportunity of a lifetime - to be the one outsider capable of reaping the unique designs of Hapan starship technology. Perhaps this would allow her new avenues.


Certainly there was one before her now.

"Yes, but I can also make you nice." She smiled - she actually joked. A Sith apprentice, joking. Vanessa never thought she would actually live to see the day.


"GenDestruct is essentially a prototypical retroviral solution. Each individual vial is tailor-made for use with the subject's base genetic code. Essentially, it overwrites the cells, destroying them and rebuilding them. It can do such small things as repair damaged sections of DNA to allow for issues such as dementia from occurring later in life, or it can change humans into other near-human species - and vice-versa. I do warn you... all of my prior tests have occurred in bacta tanks. The subject is left in incredible pain over a period of several hours as their body is biologically destroyed and rebuilt."


She thought for a moment. "Perhaps a product you could utilize."

"More physically intimidating - so taller? Stronger? Scarier?" The woman was thinking over the potential benefits of GenDestruct, which she had already successfully used to prevent Azira Zambrano from suffering the mental degeneration of her forebears and which had been used on the mercenary known as Natassia Traxen to, over several hours, destroy her cell by cell and rebuild her as a Seiarenei. A third and final test would be the 'make it or break it' moment for the material - if she went through with this test on Farah, if she did this, then the product would be verifiably safe for use. Safe enough that Vanessa would feel suitable offering it to a select group of clientele.


And she knew exactly where to get a compatible DNA baseline to tinker with.


"I can do that for you." She said. "GenDestruct, my cellular destruction and construction mixture, can make you more physically intimidating. Whatever you want, I can do that." She said. "I can assure you the process will be long, hard, and painful. You'll have to be put in a bacta tank so your body can regenerate properly. But the results, as I have tested them previously on others, have been remarkable, with a zero percent failure rate." She said.


"What do you say?"

"That sounds suitable." She said. "Ten percent is not a significant sum, though I assure you that sales of Hapan-based starships will definitely prove to be beneficial to more neutrally aligned powers - the Free Worlds Coalition navy in general, as well as some... other associates." Perhaps the Sith would be able to get some sort of use out of the Hapan tech - the ability of the Battle Dragon to use the tracks the turbolasers had been on to fire SBeams would allow the ship the ability to swiftly dissect corvettes and frigates with ease.


"May I have a list as to the equipment currently in service with the Hapes Consortium?"

"Yes..." She said, having finally determined precisely what reward she wished for returning the Song of War​. "Hapan warships serve solely in the the Consortium. I would like to change that and receive the rights, on behalf of my company, to manufacture modified Hapan starship and starfighter designs for the purchase of the general public. The designs I am thinking of are far out of date compared to your current crop of ships, after all." Her intent was already to try and improve upon the ​Song of War's​ design, as well as the Miy'til fighter and bomber samples she had acquired, but this would be a way of making such official.


"I would even be willing to provide samples of such ships to you as well - it would be my pleasure to fit your warships with our weaponry and create new forms of the Battle Dragon that would be even more effective than the current generation."

Description: Vanessa Vantai, a Sith Lord within the Sith Empire, had a fascination with superweapons. Whether it was the beam weaponry of the Death Star and the Eclipse​, or the sun-destroying power of the Corsair and the Sun Crusher, Vanessa desired to bring such extensive technological power to the hands of the Sith once again. After having sent Lieutenant Tekkio to the ruins of the Maw Installation in order to acquire a cache of weapon blueprints, Vanessa's examinations of them began to yield fruit. Some were simply impossible to replicate according to their original means of functioning, such as Centerpoint Station and the Sun Crusher. Others, like the Sovereign​ and the Eclipse​, would take far more resources than the Empire would ever have let her utilize.


But one that she was able to replicate to the perfect detail was Trigon One.


The orbital weapons satellite had been developed by a criminal organization known as the Fromm Gang, and the blueprints for it had been sent to the Maw some time after the capture of the Fromm Gang by bounty hunters aligned to Jabba the Hutt. Simple enough to manufacture, and claimed to be capable of destroying a planet, Vanessa commissioned an exact replica of the weapon, Trigon Two​, to be manufactured and tested on the dead world of Nathema. The planet was a void in the Force, after all - its destruction would not be missed. And if the tests went well, perhaps it would be worth mass-producing.


Of course, she knew it wouldn't work.


Studies of the ​Trigon One​ blueprints indicated that in every conceivable way, the weapon was a sham. It had potential as an orbital bombardment platform if equipped with the right weaponry, but it could barely penetrate the shields of a planetary base, let alone destroy a planet at full power as claims about it had been made. It was impossible to equip the small design of the weapons satellite with a weapon powerful enough to destroy a world, let alone a power source capable of powering such a weapon. The test article created a crater on Nathema, but it was capable of destroying buildings - not worlds. Still, the Trigon Two​ design was put into production after the test, with full knowledge that it would one day lose its purpose as a 'superweapon.' A Sith acolyte named Xavier Vi'dreya was put in charge of the program on Vanessa's behalf, told only that the satellites were deliberately being held back from full power.


Trigon Twos are based off the ​Trigon One​ weapons satellite designed by the Fromm Gang. Their main weapon is, as was equipped on the original, a powerful, exceedingly long range beam weapon, which could be maneuvered from an approximate 170 degree arc on the underside of the satellite. The original weapon was replaced by a DCMM-designed SBeam light beam cannon, modified to increase its range to allow for orbital bombardment, but otherwise having the same capabilities. Vanessa as well improved upon the Fromms' work, adding deflector shields, composite beam lasers, and flak guns for anti-fighter and anti-corvette defense. Maneuvering jets were as well installed on the satellite, allowing it to shift position - this allows it to bring its SBeam into play against smaller enemy warships.


On board a Trigon Two​, conditions are spartan. These satellites are intended for limited continuous use and regular resupply if crewed, supplies lasting one week. As a result, there is space for approximately ten people in two cramped bunk bed-filled quarters on board the satellite, though it is more than capable of functioning autonomously without a crew. Trigon Twos​ can be remotely controlled by other Sith Empire ships, fed targeting data from the ship in question and effectively serving as a sort of heavy turret. Trigon Twos​ can be jumped from system to system, but must be towed by tractor beam-equipped ships to their intended location.


The existence of the Trigon Two​ is a well hidden fact within the Sith Empire, even within the Void Irregular Fleet where testing was commenced. More well hidden is the fact that the weapon is not the superweapon it was believed to be, though it is a capable defense platform and orbital bombardment platform in its own right. Upon the discovery by the Sith's enemies that the Trigon Two​ is in fact not the superweapon they initially believe it to be, all information regarding the project will be declassified and the extant examples will likely be disposed of through sales to the Commenor Systems Alliance, given their beam weaponry is sufficiently weak enough to be offered for export.

Vanessa sat down and pondered over the circumstances behind the request for a reward. To have recovered the Hapan flagship as used by Isolder himself for decades was certainly a reward worth a great deal. Perhaps the exclusive rights to manufacture and sell Hapan craft outside of the Consortium's borders? That was certainly an option. She looked over at Darth Zurvan - he wasn't familiar to her in the slightest. "I can't say I've met him, no."


She would bide her time and wait to ask.

"Ah." She said. "Very well then." She thought for a moment. "it's not pleasant, but that's something to be taught when you reach masterhood." She replied. "There are means through which masters can save the soul of another, but they are rarely used and quite esoteric to perform." She responded. Perhaps one day, if Farah was ever in a situation where such would be an issue, she would be willing to provide her with a new body.


"I try to go for aesthetic, healthy, and capable bodies. Fortunately I have never had to suffer from the Dark Side decaying away at my form like it did with Palpatine's clones." She replied. "There are actually not that many advantages. It's flexible, but I suppose its near-human form is really the best quality. My last body was green, and it wasn't really possible to get rid of that issue." She said, thinking for a moment as the shuttle began to move to the surface.


"Farah... let me ask you a question. Is there anything you wish you could change about yourself?"

Posted by Vanessa Vantai on 12 March 2018 - 01:15 AM

"So it's settled then." She finished refilling the vials within the Force collar. "Your group is scattered to the edges of the galaxy. You would not deem the situation so dire had they not been crippled beyond all practical hope of continuation. I can see the desperation in you. How their fate wracks you with suffering, more suffering than any Sith could ever hope to exert upon you." She replied, going to get something, though her voice still seemed to resonate through the room despite her having been gone.


"I said I would return you to a world of your choosing. And to a world of your choosing I shall - after accelerating the process." She replied, returning with a vial of solid black liquid. "Please provide me with your shoulder. I have but one thing to do before I release you back to wherever it is that you wish to go to."

"focused in the force, less so the physical side of things"


​That's literally how I wrote Vanessa to be. I'd be more than happy to train him and help him gain control over the weapon.

Xavier Vi'dreya


Nathema Orbit


The dead world of Nathema was truly, utterly dead. There was no life to be found on the world's surface, nor in orbit, as the ritual performed long ago by Vitiate had stripped the very essence of the Force from the world, which made it an effective deathtrap for anyone who dared to go to the planet's surface. This also made it a perfect location for Defiance Consolidated Multipurpose Manufacturing and its SMD project - superweapon miniaturization and decoys. One decoy was currently taking shape - the Trigon Two orbital satellite, and she had enlisted the assistance of a recent convert to the Dark Side to assist her in working on the craft in question.


Hopefully he would arrive soon.

If someone in here has RPJ/FJ experience, I could use a lookover of my promotion storage in order to determine what exactly I need to do to ensure my promotion request gets approved. I could use your help with a thread or two in order to develop some of the new SMDs.

#1748326 Looking for Company Help

Posted by Vanessa Vantai on 11 March 2018 - 12:07 AM

I need an examination of my current promotion thread storage(Tier III to Tier IV), a determination as to whether or not it is suitable, and assistance in fulfilling the objectives still needed. I would also like assistance with regards to the SMD project, as I feel it will be beneficial for the Dark Magus to have such a weapon.

"It's okay. I've... sort of grown numb to it now." She said. "I've been stabbed, shot, eaten, roasted, and have generally died in a number of horrifying ways. Each death just... takes a part of me, I guess. The part that really worries about it. It's almost gone now." She replied, sighing. "I'm sorry. I shouldn't have brought any of this up."


She thought for a moment as the ship exited hyperspace. "It hasn't happened for a while, but yes, it's difficult to maintain the will to stay in the physical realm and find a new body." She thought for a moment. "I hope you never have to do it."


The last question was rather blunt. "Honestly... I guess I'm around like seventy." She smiled, then put her hands on her hips and crossed her legs, giving a seductive smile for a moment before going back to her normally calm demeanor. "I know, right? I look pretty good for someone who should have more wrinkles than Palpatine."


The ship exited hyperspace, revealing the planet of Malachor V before them. "We're headed to a place of important significance. The Trayus Academy. Where one of the most significant instances of the Old Sith Wars occurred."
