The Jedi Guardians are to set out into the wider Galaxy. To do this, they need a ship to call their own. A mobile base of operations where they can live, work and train whilst reaching out to different worlds and rooting out the Sith wherever they can find them.
Jedi Knight Nara Allam has received word from a contact about a promising lead. The junkyard planet Bracca is currently home to an old CR90, in somewhat decent condition. However, decent condition means decent condition for Bracca. The ship will need some repair work and new components before it's anywhere near ready to fly.
The first task for these brave defenders of the Galaxy? Make themselves a home.
1. A Chancy Corvette: The ship is in one piece, with a lot of busted electronics and systems. The reason that the ship lay there for so long without being scrapped? An infestation of mynocks that are feeding on the power cables and engine radiation, as well as other things. These must be removed for the essential repair work to start.

2. Careful Navigation: The navigational computer for the ship looks like it's been dead for a good few decades. Short of creds to purchase an actual working one, we need to grab one from some leftover scrap. There is currently one 'bridge' section from another CR90 nearby that could have the navicomp. The problem? Well, it's kind of suspended over the Ibdis Maw. Good luck with that!

3. Lasers and Blasters and Batteries, oh my!: The laser turrets are a long way from operational. A new set of batteries are needed to power them. Any set from a decent fighting ship would work for now, but finding them amongst the scrap fields of Bracca may be a problem. There may be rogue scrappers or shady types who had the same ideas as we did and... well, we want it more than they do.

4. Dig for Freedom!: The back third of the CR90 is buried in a mountain of scrap, pathways and suspended platforms from years of abandoned scrapping attempts. Scrap rats and pests run rampant through there. The Jedi must make the engines clear for the repair work to really start. Also, if we tried starting up the engines while they were still buried, we'd probably get blown up and all that arguing would have been for nothing.

Thread: Dig for Freedom!
To provide the newly formed Jedi Guardians with a ship to start us off. These threads give us a chance for our group to work together for the first time properly, explore each other's thoughts and doubts whilst giving a practical goal to aim towards. Hopefully, these ideas can give a good story whilst giving a reasonable explanation as to why a group of poor Jedi find themselves a Corvette.
At the end of the work, the Jedi Guardians will have a ship to use. The ship itself may need further work/upgrades to bring it in line with a newly-bought CR90, but will give the group more to aim for as they progress.
Open to Jedi Guardians and those Jedi who wish to provide practical support for the endeavour, even if they may have their own doubts.
I think dangling a padawan over the Ibdis Maw is an excellent training exercise myself, but that's probably why my character doesn't have a padawan.
I'm going to wait until more people have had a chance to pick and choose what they'd like before throwing Nara in somewhere, but I'm happy to have Mnoc hitching a ride and getting involved that way with her.
Jocedor would do nicely with 1 and 4, as she doesn’t know any of the Jedi doing this too well-it’ll be an excellent opportunity to make some allies and to improve her skills.-That is, if I’m allowed to join.
As for @Nykoria Tallis, she'd be best-suited for #2 and #3. But #3 is probably already full. So I'd say put her in either #2, or #4, if necessary. For the time being, I'm focusing on the write-ups for the ship ;)
I should have said that I was hoping for 2-3 people a thread. So yeah, you can begin yours! I'll sort out the rest of the assignments later today, I think we've got enough now. Just see if anyone else wants to join and then we can get started on them.
