    Somewhere in the Outer Rim Territories

    Two mid freighters, flew in hyperspace. The vessels in question were part of the Suton Inc a mega corpation friendly with the Sith Empire. Inside the hull were supplies sealed up in large crates and bound for an Imperial garrison in the outlying systems. A rotation ago the convoy had stop at a orbital refueling station and the crew received ‘additional cargo’ to their load at a generous price.

    Inside were not materials however... One of the panels to a large crate in the back opened up. Exiting out was a scarred faced Duros in a makeshift fatigues armed with a blaster rifle followed were three more gunmen. Soon enough several more crates opened as well and it was happening on the other freighter as well.

    Checking his blaster, Hugo Ion proceeded messaged on his commlink in a whisper. “All teams ready?” Soon he was answered with collective set of acknowledgements. Pleased that they still had the element of suprise on their side, Hugo subsequently sent the following instruction.

    ”Remember to watch your corners and shots everyone. The company has security onboard. We need to eliminte them swiftly and secure the ships from their crews. Also under no circumstances are you to give any hint that we’re not anything else but pirates. See you all when this is over.”

    Done Hugo turned toward the Amaran who was in his small squad and nodded in a way to let the newcomer know he expected results from him. With a hand signal the Duros rebel directed squads around to follow his lead out of the cargo hold into the ship’s interior.

    Wincor's activity beyond his ship cockpit was an uncommon occurrence, especially in such far systems. It was because of his size - although Nixdorf was a bit higher compared to a general Amaran height, compared to humans he was relatively small. He can't carry a lot of equipment, most of the armor on an open market was large for him, issues in a hand-to-hand fight and so on. Heck, Wincor even can't afford a rifle because of the size. That is why he prefers to serve as a pilot - piloting was the best part of his skills which make use of his size. But for this mission, he agreed just because this was against the Empire which had has set off his team apart. Now it will be a payback.

    The vulpine rebel has nothing to say but only nodded. He decided to stay behind the squad in case of a battle where he can use his size to surprise an enemy. Otherwise, his presence here has almost no sense. But then he was able to catch a sound somewhere from the left corridor next to the squad. Thanks to the sense of hearing which was an exclusive benefit of all Amarans.

    "Something is coming. If possible, deal with them silently. We don't need too much attention right now". Uttered the fox, but Wincor had known, that his statement will be probably impractical. Therefore he fished out his blaster, ducked and rushed toward the corner next to the door where a sound was coming. So once those will appear, the first strike will be after the Star Fox.

    Hugo Ion listened to the vulpine’s warning, halting the rest of the rebels with a raised fist. Gesturing the rest of the team to take cover behind the wal on the right side of the door, opposite of Wincor. Pulling out a vibebroknife to ready for a silent kill, Hugo steady his nerves for what’s to come. Soon enough the door lift opened and walked in a half drunk Weequay who mumbled a complaint.

    “Why do I always have to check the frakking cargo?”

    Before the sailor could say anything else Hugo was upon him from behind. Without hesitation Captain Ion with the free arm the surprised Weequay’s head and slit the throat from the other. Instantly, the unfortunate victim was dead. Placing the newly made corpse out of view, Hugo signal for the group to follow him out of the cargo. With careful steps and weapons at the ready the intruders advanced through the hallway.

    They won’t be able to maintain stealth forever. Turning the next corridor they suddenly found themselves facing four Suton company men with guns. Both sides were briefly stunned to see one another but Hugo fired a shot with his blaster, wounding the sailor in front who fell with a cry. Blasterfire filled the small area forcing anyone with common sense to take cover at the wall.

    The thing which has happened right after Hugo's stealth kill doesn't really surprise the fox. He was expecting something similar to the skirmish that ongoing right now, with a hope to encounter it a bit later. Rebellions are built on hope, but where this hope was when his team was almost annihilated during a battle near Ord Mantell? Star Fox wants to know even today. Even when blasters shots flying above his head. Nixdorf did some shots as well, but he wasn't so successful as Hugo and started to think that without some cunning tactic Hugo's squad will take too much time to kill the guards. After all, they can easily call for reinforcement and then the rebel squad might be outnumbered. Suddenly, Wincor has figured out a brilliant idea when his eye has caught a lattice beyond of which was an air shaft, he felt with it with his legs.

    "Hugo, keep the pressure on them!" shouted the furry rebel and removed the fencing from the shaft. It was dusty and dirty inside, but luckily Wincor size was enough to fit there. Nixdorf then quickly crawled on his knees through the shaft and flanked them from behind while two sides were trying to shoot each other. The fox has broken out the fencing on the opposite side of the shaft with his fist. The vulpine rebel was even able to shot one of the Sutons in the back, but unfortunately, another one has detected the canine and attempted to shot him in the response of his colleague death. Star Fox has managed to cover himself behind the air shaft wall, although he can't now to continue the fight because he is now overwatched by the Suton guardian who will shot him surely should the Fox appears once again in the enemy sight.

    As a commander, Hugo knew they could not afford to be stuck in a prolonged firefight nor suffer too many casualties. That was on his mind as the bolts continued to fly through the hallway. It was in the next moment Nixdorf shouted at him to keep up the pressure, noticing the Star Fox heading for the air shaft. With a fierce grin of approval Hugo fired back with his carbine supported by the rest of the team. Their diversion paid off as Wincor outflank the hostiles, eliminating one and districting the rest.

    “Now Dess!” Captain Ion shouted to a blond haired human behind him who tossed a flash bang grenade towarding the remaining enemies. It ignited fortunely while Wincor was hiding back in the air shaft but the Suton guards were hit by the full force of the flash. Blinded, they were all gun downed by Hugo’s team.

    “Great job Wincor now come out of there.”

    Saying so, the Duros soon received an update from the assault team on the second freighter.

    “Captain we’re in full engagement but pressing forward. Only slight wounds for a few of us so far.”

    Pleased, Hugo replied as his lead team following behind him resuming their advance, with the Star Fox hopefully with them.

    “Copy that. Proceed as planned but don’t take any chances.” Finished he looked back to the other squads of rebels that finally caught up with his.

    “Took you boys and girls long enough. Spread out and secure the quarters, engineering room and the armory. My group with me will head for the bridge.”

    The short briefing ended while the alarms begin to ring through the ship. Time is of the essence. Captain Ion now running with the unit of rebels to the corridor, leading to the bridge.

    Fox has taken a deep breath once he exited from the shaft. It was a relief because the smell which started to fill the space there has been reminding a... rotting and toasted flesh. Whatever it was, it takes some efforts for the furry rebel not to puke. Wincor wasn't sure if it was true, but doubts about the activity of this ship were already in Wincor's mind. Luckily for Hugo, Nixdorf simply has no time to think about it. However, the followed captain speech has triggered some suspicious toward Ion. Of course, Wincor wasn't squad leader anymore and can't argue captain's decision, but he has the right to clarify the orders. "The forewarned - the forearmed", nothing wonderful.

    "The bridge? Do you want to theft the entire ship? Or..." Asked Nixdorf but was forced to cut his question in the middle when Hugo's squad had rushed to the bridge. Star Fox was having no choice but simply follow his commander. But when the team was passing through another corridor, the rebel has spotted a stormtrooper in the black suit. He had resisted shotting in the foe, but instead, he shot in the control panel on the move which has locked the door, separating the rebel squad from the Death Trooper. "I think, I have just spotted a stormtrooper in black. We should be careful now."
