Courscant Shikari's Vector-Class shuttle flew through the atmosphere of Courscant and into the bright lights of the massive city-planet below. Shikari rose from her seat in back and walked up to the cockpit, standing behind her two pilots as they brought the ship through the busy air-traffic of the city and flew towards the government district. Courscant was as busy as ever, a constant hub of social and industrial activity. It was the planet that never slept, as it were. In truth, Shikari didn't like Courscant much. There were too many beings around. You were constantly surrounded on all sides by unknown. One had to have their guard up at all times and remain in tune with the force in order to protect one's back from any possibilities. As a Sith Crusader, Shikari should have been perfectly safe on the central, ruling planet of the Imperial Republica, but no one was ever truly safe in this place. Not unless you were spending time in one of the sith temples. Only a fool would enter one of those places seeking to attack a sith. But even there, one had to watch one's back against other unruly sith, so... Not much better. Shikari wouldn't truly feel comfortable on this planet until she could pull into orbit in her own man-o-war, and that time hadn't come yet. In truth, that was actually why she was here, to speak with someone at the Imperial Resource Allocation office to try to acquire an Imperial Corvette for her own command. Now that she was a Crusader, the possibility existed that she she could claim such a prize, but the fact that she had only just been promoted, and still was of relatively low standing made the possibilities slim. "Crusader" was a rather broad title within the sith hierarchy. There were crusaders who commanded large armies and warships, and then there were crusaders who travelled the galaxy in their own little fighters, dealing with the reality of traversing hyperspace in a tiny little cockpit. Well, that was something Shikari was tired of, and if she had her way, she would put an end to it right here. As her shuttle reached the landing pads and dropped it's landing gear, she turned and walked to the mid section of the shuttle where the ramp was beginning to lower. If this didn't work, she would have to find some other recourse to increase her command.
