“Alright, let’s catch up with the TIE Bombers. Speed boost until 100 meters away, slow down to seven eighths speed at 75 meters, and slow to three fourths speed at 25 meters, and stay at that speed behind them.”
“Roger that” said Alpha 7. He sounded disappointed.
“Roger that” said Alpha 3. He sounded disappointed to.
“What's the problem?” Exclaimed the commander, “Aren’t you trained to follow orders without complaining?”
Alpha 3 inhaled and then replied, “Yes commander.”
“Alpha 7?” asked the commander. There was a small awkward silence.
“Yes.” replied Alpha 7 with a sigh.
The Interceptor pilots caught up to the TIE Bombers, but little did they know they were about to face a small threat. However, it was something they had not seen since the Battle of Yavin. A rebel fighter.
“Alright we're caught up to you!” said Alpha 3, who was excited to see if the commander would let them use their weapons again.
“Roger that” said Alpha 13, who was also eager to try out the Bomber’s other abilities.
Obviously, the commander didn’t let them test the weaponry again.
“Wait, what’s that sound” asked the commander, who seemed worried for the first time ever.
Off in the distance the TIE Pilots could hear a soft boom, and then a low pitched sound, followed by the very distinguishable sound of a rebel starfighter. An A-Wing was on their backs.
“Rebel A-Wing, on our six!” exclaimed Alpha 3, who sounded like he was about to crash his ship into the ground. Somehow, one rebel fighter scared Alpha 3. Just imagine him in battle.
“Roger, Turning around now.” said Alpha 7, who sounded as serious as stone.
The pilots all followed Alpha 7’s lead and opened fire on the rebel ship. Unfortunately for them, it had its deflector shield on so no blaster could hit it. The Interceptor pilots all activated their laser barrages, but not even that could pierce a deflector shield.
“I have an idea.” said Alpha 2, “I will pull up and then shoot a missile out of my bombing chute. It should lock on and hit, breaking through the shield and then you guys and shoot it the rest of the way down”
“Roger that” said the commander. He wasn’t worried about a thing now.
Alpha 2 pulled up, doing a 180, and at the same time fired one of his ION missiles. He was now upside down, so he did a barrel roll. The missile locked on, but the pilot of the A-Wing dodged the missile using a barrel roll himself.
“It didn’t hit!” yelled Alpha 5, “It didn’t hit!”
At this time the A-Wing put out its landing gear, and landed on a landing platform close to where it was. The pilot got out of the craft, and then ran for cover. Both of the TIE Bombers that were still facing the right way diverged to the right to drop orbital strike bolts on the A-Wing. They successfully destroyed it!
Then all of a sudden, a fast moving flash of green plasma energy hit Alpha 3’s wing. The man from the A-Wing was the one who shot, no doubt.
“I’m hit! I’m hit” screamed Alpha 3.
He landed his Interceptor, but just barely. He took off his flight gear, and put on his cloaking device. He had transformed into a shadow trooper. He grabbed one of the emergency blasters from the TIE, and opened the hatch on top of the fighter.
He jumped out and started looking around through the scope of his E-11 blaster rifle. He choose the E-11 because it was a good all around blaster. This TIE Vehicle was also equipped with a T-21 heavy blaster, and modifiable parts including a scope and Semi-Automatic barrel attachment to make it the T-21B Targeting Rifle for long range engagements, and a Thermal Detonator.
“Alpha 3 has landed successfully.” said the commander, “Open fire on the one who shot at him.”
And off the pilots went, opening fire on the one who hit Alpha 3. Little did they know, this A-Wing pilot was the one who would help in the destruction of the second Death Star and Star Killer base. He would survive both of these missions.
A NEW ENEMY
The pilots in TIE Bombers successfully hit and destroyed the person’s A-Wing. Alpha 3, (who was on the ground), would soon find out that the person was not a person. He was a Sullustan.
“Commander,” whispered Alpha 3, “I have sights on the rebel. He is a Sullustan, probably used to work at Sorosuub. Orange body glove, black vest. Has a DLT-20A, or Pulse Cannon in his hands, DH-17 as a sidearm.”
“Well, open fire!” said the commander, who was angry that one of the brand new fighters was damaged, “Take aim, and don’t miss!”
“I need more troops,” said Alpha 3, “Send a squad of troops to landing pad, um, Aurek Grek Besh, and tell them go and unload the containers. When they start that, I will fire, and they should join in.”
“Oh, alright, I understand” said the commander, who seemed disappointed, but happy at the same time. The commander wanted Alpha 3 to kill this man alone, but he was happy he was smart enough to ask for help.
“Control, this is Alpha commander.” said the commander, through the comms to control, “I am requesting that a squad go to landing platform Aurek Grek Besh and help out a shadow trooper who was flying a TIE Interceptor, and was then hit. He landed safely, but we suspect someone from the Rebel Alliance is down there.”
Landing Platforms on Sullust
“Control to Alpha commander, sending a squad up now”
“Roger that. Alpha Squadron, fly out and go for a strafe run on the rebel scum!”
“Roger over” said Alpha 7, 13, 2, and 5 simultaneously.
The TIE Bombers, (Alpha 2, Alpha 13 and Alpha 5), went out for about 200 meters, then came around to drop ION Missiles on the Sullustan. The TIE Interceptors (Alpha commander, and Alpha 7) went out 300 meters and then turned around to fire their laser cannons at him. Their first strafe wasn’t done by the time the troopers got up there.
“Alright, Charlie squad,” said Alpha 3, “Fire!”
Alpha 3 deactivated the cloaking device, and of course the storm troopers opened fire, and well, missed every shot. Alpha 3 hit the Sullustan, but he ran for cover when the alien pulled out his DH-17 blaster pistol.
“He has out a DH-17! That thing is fully automatic!” yelled Alpha 3 into his mic. “What should I do?”
At this time the sullustan was constructing a very basic turret. He placed it down, and it locked onto the squad of stormtroopers, and fired. None of the troopers survived.
“Well,” said the commander, “You should wait around there. I’m afraid that the squad of stormtroopers was completely wiped. We will get a Star Destroyer to pick us up and fire on the rebel.”
“Alright, I will try and hold on” said Alpha 3, who sounded very scared, “I've got a really bad feeling about this”
That was not even comparable to what they would witness it a little while.
SULLUSTAN ON THE DESTROYER
Conveniently, a Star Destroyer was coming out of Hyperspace at that moment, and would be directly above where they all were.
Star Destroyer on Sullust
“Star Destroyer is almost here,” said the commander. He was talking very fast, “Hold on a little longer.”
“Ok.” said Alpha 3
“This is Alpha 2. I have my shields on, I will pick you up”
Alpha 2 want down, and picked up Alpha 3. Just then the Star Destroyer pulled in from the Hoth System.
“Alright, pull up to the Star Destroyer.
