    Freyja stood in the center of her ship 'The Vanir', the walls were still bare wires and pipes showing, only a few of them had the paneling replaced. The great hole in the floor where the hyperdrive was originally removed from had been partially sealed after its re-installation. There was still gaps around some of the metal struts her and Kara had put back in after they have left Christophsis. The ship was far from complete that was for sure, but Freyja's mind had been elsewhere, first with the Galactic Alliance, then The Valkyries and now the woman who stood with them, Verdandi.

    She looked around at the assembled Valkyries, she had called them all to her to the ship to speak about the newest turn in their fortunes. Verdandi was older than Freyja, middle aged she guessed by the look of her. It has been a strange meeting, one she would never forget. Freyja, Kara and The Vanir were on Hoth, taking in supplies from the growing Alliance, to ship back to her colleagues further to the Galactic East when out of nowhere she appeared, it was like a ghost made whole. She had appeared when Freyja had turned her head for only a moment. Verdandi had sought out Freyja for some specific reason, though even know she was unsure the real reason. But she had shown Freyja things she never would have expected and her stories had enthralled the woman, to the point she know spoke to her assembled Valkyries.

    "Now you are all here." She looked at Hosk who came in last. "I want to introduce you to Verdandi." She continued pointing at the women.

    "My name is Verdandi, some call me 'The Preacher of the Present', though that is a rather exotic title for what I really am. At heart I am an analyst, I look at patterns, information and make tactically decisions based on these. I am good at my Job, but I am only one part of a whole, my older sisters Urd and Skuld, now they see things. Are able to look into both the future and the past. To see things well beyond what my information provides. Between us we have been able to accurately predict the outcomes of issues within the galaxy for the last thirty years."

    "As you can guess having these abilities would greatly benefit both the Galactic Alliance and The Valkyries." Freyja chimed in.

    "Both my sisters though have been taken. Urd is on Mustafare and Skuld was taken to Endor. I have come to ask for your help."

    "And I intend for us to help her. Myself and Kara." She said pointing at her Pilot. "Are heading with Verdandi to their old home to collect items which help the three with their 'Predictions' so I need you to help find Skuld and Urd." She continued looking at the each of them.

    Tycho stood at one side of the ship, leaning against a bundle of pipes with his arms crossed in front of his chest. He looked to Freyja, who called him and the others to her ship. No he was not doing anything important. But due to an injury he sustained while traveling with a friend. One side of his face was bandaged up and was still in a ways wrapping his head around what had happened.

    The man looked to Verdandi as the woman started to talk. So she wanted help to get her two sisters after they have been taken. Well that certainly has a few complications there. With the two sisters being kept in two separate locations, that means whoever took them have split their teams into two. If the Valkyries go, which they will, they may have to do the same and split up. Then coordinate their attacks. If one team goes in too soon, the location of the other sister will be alerted and therefore prepared for when the team sent for the other sister make their move.

    Clearing his throat Tycho pushed himself off of the pipes, "Here is the problem though. With her sisters being kept in two separate locations we can't go as a single group to one location then to the other. If we go to one, the enemy will alert the group holding onto the other sister. If we split up we will have to go to both locations at the same time and coordinate our attacks. If one falls behind on the timetable then the safety of the sister is at stake since even a small mistake on the timetable for either group will give the enemy time to alert the other location." Tycho pointed out, hoping that what he is saying is making sense to the others present.

    Looking at Tycho, Mae asks "what about a signal jammer to help slow down communications between the two different parties? Thus can be done from space if we got the tech or from the ground as we are in a 2 km range."

    She had some knowledge in jammers and they could be used while the simultaneous attacks are happening to prove an extra times table. She looked around the others to see if this plan was at all acceptable.

    She then looked to Rex hoping he would at least back her up.

    Kruger stood leaning on a wall casually. The sips inside did not match the outside one bit. Of course, it did not matter. The ship was still far grander than any other ship Kruger had seen in the Galatic Alliance. The mission here was a simple one when broken down Rescue two people the twist not held together.

    "Jamming is a good idea but here is a bad side to that idea, if we start with it from the start. If your base lost communication would you not go on high alert. best we can hope for is to sneak in close as we can. Close as we can get to our targets before shooting the better and Tycho is correct we need to hit both locations at the same time to ensure we get both sisters out"

    Tycho was going to reply to Mae, but Kruger beat him to the punch. Saying the same thing that he was going to say. The man decided that he should drive Kruger's point home. There is just too much of a risk with Mae's idea.

    "Kruger is right. If you use it at any point while we are moving in or entering the place. They will know that we are coming and alert where they are holding the other. The other thing too is if they have more forces being held elsewhere. They may keep close tabs on both locations, if that is the case if communication is lost with either of the two then they will either go to the location we have not attacked or they will come in and trap us where we go if we go as one team. We may increase our odds of success if we split up and hit both locations at the same time, without jamming their communications or any of their systems." He said glancing to Mae with a tone that said his decision on the who jamming communications and other systems was final.

    Uncrossing his arms with a sigh, "Look it is an advantage to jam and enemies system. But with it being two locations being run by people in the same organization or whatever they call themselves. It is not a good idea. Alright?" The criminal added.

    Mae completely disappointed that her idea was shot down without thinking it over much. Further disappointed the Red had not backed her up in the slightest, she sighs and rolls her eyes and leans back on the bulkhead trying to figure out another way she could help.

    Maes ground game is very limited to the others. She's not the greatest and using a blaster or her knife/sword. She mostly carries them to be treated with more respect and as an equal. She is quicker than most but she does not have the constitution to take a hit and keep fighting. She ponders while the others talk about how she can use her high dexterity to assist them on foot. She also wonders if she might be needed better in space to defend their escape.

    Her piloting skills were where she is best. She thought about this for a little bit before speaking up again.

    "Will we need an escort off the planet as soon as we have recovered both individuals? If we do, O can be of assistance piloting my straighter and my two wingman." She said back to the mission leader, hoping this may help instead of her jamming idea.

    Predictions of the future and visions of the past. Hosk didn't believe a word. He had been watching the group talk, arms folded and stood near the center of the room with a cynical expression across his face. Nobody seemed to be forming a cohesive plan yet and it seemed like time was of the essence here. Clearing his throat, he spoke up. "We aren't going to get anywhere arguing about signal jammers, friends. Mae, if you've got piloting experience then by all means you can provide some aerial support. I'll go to Endor and see about rescuing this Skuld alongside whoever wants to join me, the rest of you can go to Mustafar. Stealth will, as usual, be a key element here. We can't have one group blowing the other's cover, regardless of if they're acting simultaneously." He said, considering their options.

    "Obviously we'll need one designated pilot per group as it sounds like a hasty getaway will help here, but if all goes well we won't need to run too fast." Hosk concluded. All they really needed at the moment was to divide themselves into each group, individual tactics could wait until the journey there. This'd be a tricky operation to pull off, but if what Freyja was saying was true it'd be more than worth the reward. Hosk still didn't believe in all this kriff, but if the girl was sure then he'd follow along for now.

    Tycho looked to Hosk. He is right, they are just wasting precious time arguing about signal jamming. The criminal looked to the others, "Hosk is right. We are wasting time arguing. I will go to Mustafar. We will figure out tactics on our way to the destinations. But as daid we have to hit both locations at the same time. Perhaps we should come up with a code word for when both groups are in position so we can signal eachother when to move?" He wondered looking to the others. They need to figure out a way on how to hit both of the locations at the same time without one group attacking too late or too early.

    "We may not need a fast get away. With them holding the sisters at separate locations then their forces are split up." Tycho scratched the side of his face that had a bandaged running across part of it, "Perhaps.. It is while we are getting away with the Sisters is when we jam their signals just ling enough for us to get away."

    kruger raised his hand when Hosk said he would go to Endor. "I will join you on Endor. I am no pilot but my Ship and droid can get us there but a proper pilot would be best." Kruger had worked with the Bothan before a few times so it made sense for them to work together again. Any case Endor sounded like a far better choice than some hot volcano world. Forrest and fresh air that did not burn your lungs. "If all goes while we can slip in and slip out without to much hassle. Move in with Dart pistols and get out before anyone even knows there was an attack."Truthfully Kruger was all was more about death and destruction but he could be silent and would even bring his flamethrower since that was all so pretty silent too. While the flamethrower made less noise than a blaster at least and if all else failed a forest fire was a good way to cover a fallback.

    "Sharlon, I will go with you to Endor and Pilot your ship, I have experience in flying such craft. I will have my wingman keep deep orbit, maybe around one of the moon's if we need them and I'll stay on your ship to provide a swift exit if need be or modification to our original plan if we see fit. Something a droid would definitely have a hard time with." Mae replied as a plan had finally started to take shape among the others.

    Mae looks over at Rex and wonders if he will pilot the other mission with his ship and crew. Rex has been unusually quiet lately.

    "Does that sound good to you, Sharlon, Musk?" She asks.

    Rex was trying to put a list together with his 2nd, Brock when the meeting or discussion had began and missed out on most of the discussion after the introduction. After he heard his name, however, his ears perked up and he was in the conversation full swing. "Yes, we can use my ship for one of the two rescue locations" He replied to Mae. His eyes wondered the group, much like the wide variety of ships in the Rebel fleet was the races and characters of the individuals in the cause. Much like any ship with 2 or 3 captains, there was a lot of head butting on trying to figure out a reasonable plan that would work for both locations. Rex decided to sit the conversation out again and let the others come up with a plan and he would chime in from time to time volunteering his ship and crew where he saw a need.
