"I knew it was risky, especially since even the alchemical cover would likely be blown at some point. Their alchemical activities revolve much more about Sithspawn than electronics. The events of Shusugaunt made me realize that even an ingenious cover, even a believable motive to adopt a cover, is not sufficient to succeed under cover, even though my position was compromised only when exfil was the logical next step. What I did not realize until now was that I was a known quantity this far away from ORC or GE space"
 
While I can always use a fake identity short-term, I don't think it's going to work long-term. Better have someone else do this, and... ugh! she thought, while the memories of Shusugaunt were resurfacing in her mind. Where she made it out alive only because of Griet's timely intervention, after planting ion bomb filling mixed with powdered incendiaries into the place's supply of copier toner. Now, it was possible someone else saved Jorus Merrill's hide on Shusugaunt, but Ria Misrani had the right idea. Infiltrating other factions that could possibly become players on the map, including but not limited to using underworld contacts, was perhaps a necessity. Hopefully Gilamar Skirata would actually prove of use, while Runi Verin seemed to have some connections among the CIS. She had to comb her client list, past and present, and ask for information as needed, perhaps using navy money for payment, or free items if they preferred noncash considerations. And yet, to think that she achieved that much fame from either alchemical sources or dogfighting sources was enough to give her pause. True, the Modem was her main claim to fame in the alchemical world, but to think it carried enough risk to compromise any covert ops mission she might undertake?

 

"I think I'll stay out of any direct field involvement in external intel"

"While, of course, proper listening-post coverage is a thing the ORC possessed, is there a reason why we seemed to be unable to make a proper use of the information they provide? One would think smuggling could provide a channel for external intel gathering, a rather risky one perhaps, but usable nonetheless" she commented on both Runi Verin and Simone talking about intelligence-gathering.

 

Then Jorus Merrill commenting on the possibility of the Alliance collapsing? She could understand that, especially since their failures in prosecuting warfare on various theaters might lead some to question the current state of Alliance leadership, with her estimate being that their planets from Vero southward were the most likely to question GA leadership. But the First Order may be internally vulnerable, too. Varonat was as much a Pyrrhic victory for the GE as it may have been for the FO, especially given how much of the First Order's naval assets were engaged in this one engagement. They committed over 150 km to the Alliance's 100km. 100km is significant for any faction, when usual battlefleets usually comprise 10-15km for each command involved, and even less than that on Dagobah and Zenith Prime, she thought, and rumors about a similar fate befalling the Alliance as had the GE, that is, a civil war possibly erupting. But if she wanted to infiltrate a Mando ally, as suggested by Mara Merrill-Valkner, the best bet for her would be to infiltrate Sith. In fact, she may as well pose as an alchemy expert, because she is one. Or as someone brought in to make reforms to their starfighter corps. Now, the former cover is harder to blow than the latter, but the latter seems more likely to bring the ORC info that carried security implications. Some Darth title, with the Lady of Aircraft title attached to it...

 

"Given that infiltrating Sith seemed to be a possibility, there are two possibilities if I was to personally do that: either I pose as an alchemy expert or I pose as someone brought in to make reforms to their starfighter corps. If my information is current, the Sith's starfighter corps is in an utter state of near-complete neglect, but I have to be wary of Sith bureaucracy if I choose the latter cover"

"I AM HiteVision!" the Tro'zet gangster shouted, loud enough to be heard about a hundred meters away.

 

"Set the weapons to stun" the lead cop ordered his fellow cops. "Aim..."

 

And yet, unless HiteVision wanted to hijack the truck, he would find it difficult to get out of the storage bay because the truck was docked tightly enough against the storage bay door that it would only allow a somewhat narrow opening, too narrow for a Tro'zet to exploit, and any alternative way in or out of the storage bay would involve doors built for humans/Near-Humans. HiteVision is of the same species as the one being called Sortz, whose name I've heard around. Perhaps I could have a blaster on stun, she thought, while wondering if there was but one agent that could fire a blaster on stun that had enough stopping power to stun HiteVision at a deliberate firing rate. With Dax Fyre ducked near the storage bay in question, he will realize that HiteVision is a little oversized for the storage bay and that he had to continually bow down while in the storage bay. He's about to go on a rampage and, because the ysalamirs are making their job harder here, she had to let the cops fire the blasters so that the gangster could be controlled. Once the blasters were carefully aimed to fire stun bolts at the Tro'zet, the cops opened fire; the sheer size of the target made it difficult to miss, and the Tro'zet fell to the ground after taking a half-dozen stun bolts.

 

"You're under arrest for the theft of construction materials, battery, conspiracy to trouble the peace. You have the right to remain silent; anything you might say may be held against you. You have the right to retain legal counsel; however, if you can't afford it, it's fine, too"

"HiteVision? Stolen construction supplies? Bay 327"

 

"Thank you for your cooperation"

 

What would Bay 327 hold? Would HiteVision be there? Looks like the Pack Rat held some ysalamirs because she couldn't sense anything in the Force within those bays, and that the Pack Rat's owner based the business on the premise that Force-users are a legitimate security threat. Which meant that she would need to use her beskad to defend herself if HiteVision was hostile, unless she could somehow stay some distance away from the garage door of the storage bay. The truck was getting docked to Bay 327, and Janick stayed some distance away, knowing that she isn't a front-line brawler by any stretch, and an anti-riot shield would be necessary of the cops closest to the dock where the truck is moored. The cops open the dock's door, finding one sentient guarding a mound of dry duracrete in pallets of powdered duracrete, durasteel rods and other parts used for structural work and other utilities work for building a bunker. But it was obvious to Janick that it was not the end of the story. The Tro'zet gangster had to bow down to get out of the storage bay... with Dax Fyre nearby.

 

"Why have the vandals not returned from the liquor store?" the Tro'zet gangster asked, once the police opened the storage bay door.

 

"They have been arrested while vandalizing it"
