MC70 Ackbar-class Star Cruiser
Standing on the bridge, thin lines of stars could be seen compressing back into their original white dots, as the ship exited hyperspace. Accompanied by three smaller corvettes, the Mon Calamari cruiser commissioned to the Republic, looked slightly out of place compared to the bulky exterior of it's three guards. Blue light cast from the planet they were approaching, shone on the vessels, entering the bridge through the view-screen and splashing on the Shi'ido's robes. Rakata Prime. Or as it was more commonly known as Lehon. The home planet of the Rakata species, and the Capital of their once feared Empire. For thousands of years the Rakata enslaved the citizens of the galaxy, corrupting the people with the dark side of the Force. However with time they had weakened and were destroyed, leaving only the ruined temples and fortresses to carry on their legacy.
And now the Republic had journeyed here to retrieve all that data and history that remained on the beautiful world. Covered in ocean, only small island pockets dotted the surface, narrowing their areas of focus. Of course their would be danger on the world. The planet had been corrupted by the dark side, having inhabited the dark species for so long, Rasu could already feel the strong pull of it's seductive powers, urging her to journey to the planet surface. Who knew how the wildlife had been affected. Which was why the Jedi and any other able bodied member of the Republic had been sent first, to cull the planet of it's dangers before research teams could journey down, and settlements created.
With that said, those accompanying her on the first trip were welcome to do some research as well, of course she had all informed them of the dangers that they might face. Booby traps of the Infinite Empire were a feared thing, pulling the living essence out of the physical body and trapping it in a mind cell, Rasu shuddered at the thought. Pushing that out her mind, she returned to a small station to go over the plan for the coming mission. The directives were as follows;
- To journey to the Temple of the Ancients. Here members of the group would have to first clear out any of the native wildlife, whether it be through peaceful or aggressive action. After this was done, members were to retrieve any data that was accessible, for researchers to analyse. This section would most likely contain traps and other dangerous aspects as the pull of the dark side is at it's strongest here, so it is suggested that more experienced members of the group take part in this mission.
- To journey to the beach head of the largest island, and clear out any dangers on the chunk of land. Settlements will be situated here so members must ensure that it is indeed safe before researchers arrive to begin their studies. Although not as dangerous as the Temple itself, the island may still hold a fair number of wildlife that could threaten those on this mission. This mission would be better suited for the more less experienced members of the group, having a lower risk of danger.
Relaying this to all monitors on all four crafts, she set off for the hangar ready to take part in this mission also, eager to see what awaited her on the home of the Rakata people.
