Dark times have befallen the galaxy. Five years have passed since the GALACTIC EMPIRE replaced the Republic, and in the wake of these events, numerous business have been forced to close due to severe new Imperial laws and regulations.

On the war torn planet of Solay, one such company, the SOLAY EXPRESS, has been won in a game of chance by a Trandoshan entrepreneur named Slyssk. With the help of several associates, Slyssk hopes to build the business into a profitable venture.

Meanwhile, whilst transporting their first legitimate cargo back to their base of operation in the Solay desert, the crew of the SOLAY EXPRESS are pursued by a group of nefarious bounty hunters keen on making the shipment their own....

The camera pans pan to the planet of Solay, a rich environment of jagged rocks, rising termite hills and sand. The camera pans across a sandy landscape, with the opening of a canyon of red brown rock in the distance. Suddenly a skiff flies overhead at top speed headed towards the canyon. Blaster bolts fire from the skiff towards an unseen enemy. Suddenly a series of speeder bikes and a landspeeder race after the skiff, its crews returning blaster fire towards the skiff.

Doctor’s Orders


The world of Solay is in the midst of civil war. Factions fight against the tyranny of LORD BLACKART who commands security forces from his well protected palace overlooking the capital city of Teinoblo.

Escalated violence has presented new opportunities for crime lords and street gangs who terrorise local citizens, adding to the widespread fear and panic. As the Empire assists in the subjugation of the world, gangs turn against each other in frustration.

One gang, the Solay Slayers, has fallen victim to an opposing gang. Gang leader KA’TERIN KINTO has approached the proprietor of the Solay Express to help in the recovery of stolen goods from their warehouse, a shipment he claims are medical supplies....

The Big Gamble


Lockdown! Rebellious activity continues to plague the military forces on Solay, the unrest resulting in a battalion of Imperial Stormtroopers being dispatched to the planet to quell the mounting dissent.

With security forces spread across the system, a planet wide search continues for those responsible for the horrific murder of well-respected Solay High Council member, NASIAN LOGE.

Meanwhile, SLYSSK, and the crew of the Solay Express, flee the capital with their cargo of highly illegal spice, recovered from the scene of the Councillor’s murder. Unfortunately their flight to freedom is cut short, as they are once again pursued across the desert....

EVENTS:

  • The crew of the Solay Express find themselves being chased by what was left of the Nebula Rats across the desert as they head back to their base of operations. Overwhelmed due to their already existing injuries from their first confrontation with the rats, and the sheer numbers who has chased them, the crew put their pedal to the metal as they take their skiff and three stolen speeder bikes to avoid the rabid Rannats.
  • During the battle, both Kylar and Slyssk are knocked unconscious, with the former suffering near fatal injuries when he was knocked out, and crashed his speeder into the desert floor. Slyssk was luckier when he was merely knocked out and collapsed onto the deck of the skiff.
  • During the battle, as things started to go poorly, Hal turned the ship around and was able to ram the Rannat’s speeder, causing a majority to find themselves on the receiving end of an exploding speeder. Several of the Rannats however managed to climb aboard the skiff, and with daggers drawn made their way towards the skiff’s pilot.
  • Meanwhile, one of the Rannats managed to kitch as ride of Kendall’s speeder, but not before Talgoto was able to take the Rannat out with some fancy flying of his own.
  • The Rannants who appeared on the skiff split their forces, with one attempting to get back their cargo, and the other two attempted to fleece Hal of his limbs.

After a chance meeting with a corrupt Imperial Official, KENDALL HANLON learns of an opportunity to steal a rare piece of artwork called the Manlees Se’Tong, the fabled painting of the first ruler of Dornea.

Narrowly avoiding destruction, SLYSSK and his crew return to their home base on the desert world of Solay to deliver the shipment of RYL-X stolen from the Imperials on Arlave.

The crew of the Solay Express ponder their next move hoping that their new business partner may offer them some protection and isolate them from the fallout of their previous venture.

Meanwhile, the GALACTIC EMPIRE, frustrated with the theft of the dangerous substance, a key element in a secret Imperial Operation, have dispatched bounty hunters into the sector to recover the cargo and deal with those responsible. Unfortunately for KYLAR, those same hunters are aligned with a notorious Hutt Clan eager to seek revenge....

PAN DOWN: The yellow world of Solay, its 10 clustered suns bathing the planet is their heat.

A large vessel looms overhead. A Hutt Battle Barge comes into view. Suddenly a large hatch grinds open in its underbelly. Several small Hutt transports exits the bay and head towards the surface, flanked by two Hutt fighters.

CUT TO: A Distant outpost somewhere in the Outback Regions of Solay. Children can be seen playing on what appears to be a tarmac, a version of hopscotch etched out in the dirt. Workers move about the building as they prepare to shut down the facility for the night. A tall middle aged Rodian surveys the area around the settlement. He leans down and collects some sand. He watches as the sands pour onto the ground. His head snaps upwards, and races to the closest sentry tower. A verpine stands guard, surveying the area with a pair of macro-binocuilars.



Moments later the two fighters begin blasting the settlement. Building topple. Screams can be heard. Moments later, one of the transports land, several armoured humanoids exit the transport, guns blazing. The second transport lands near the main building, a tall dark armoured woman strides out behind several similarly armoured foes.



Blaster fire continues, with several battles shown. The settlers are no match for the precision of the bounty hunters. Eventually Jora and the verpine are brought before the tall Bounty Hunter.



Belyssa snap draws her modified heavy blaster pistol and shoots Jora square in the head, and his lifeless corpse collapses to the ground. The female bounty hunter tilts her head as she looks down at the fallen Rodian, the reflection of blood pooling around the body of the Rodian can be seen in her highly reflective visor. She straightens herself, no longer mesmorised by the flowing ichor, and turns to the Verpine.



CUT TO: Interior of the Solay Express hanger bay.
