Chapter 12 – Hunting Down Kantiss and Return to Orderon
After the Battle of Dantoonie, on the planet Coruscant, word comes to the senate of the massive battle.
Bothan Senator, “It has come to my understanding that another massive battle has happened and the losses were great for the New Republic and also, I got word another battle fleet was sent to Kyle Duron?”
Mon Mothma, “Yes another Star Defender group was sent to aid Kyle in capturing Matt the Rev. Also, right before entering this chamber, I received a message saying that Matt the Rev has been captured and will be turned over to face trial for his attack on Naboo.”
Naboo Senator, “I am glade that he was captured but this body forgot that he was aided by Mandalorians, which are still out there.”
Mon Mothma, “Well I sent word to Jedi Master Luke Skywalker asking him if Kyle was up for the task of bringing in Kantiss.”
Bothan, “I still do not agree with giving an 18-year-old such a fleet, but I heard that Captain Sergio has linked up with him.”
Mon Mothma, “Well now, if there is nothing else, meeting over.”
Back on Dantoonie
Kyle, “Ural, you still want to stay here?”
Ural, “This is my home and with young juan here, I have no reason to leave.”
Frank, “You know this conclave could be reopened, and be used as a secondary Jedi Academy.”
Sergio, “Jedi Master Ural.”
Ural, “Yes Sergio?”
Sergio, “I am returning the armor and vibro double sword I found to you.”
Ural, “You can keep it, it is better to be used then collecting dust.”
Sergio, “Thank you so much.”
As the group is talking, an X-Wing is descending down from the atmosphere.
Kyle, “Heads up all X-Wing coming in.”
Rick, “I wonder who it could be?”
As the X-Wing lands, a robe figure exits the craft.
Ural, “Another Jedi?”
As the figure comes closer the hood is removed and it turns out to be Luke Skywalker.
Kyle, “Greetings Master Skywalker what brings you here?”
Luke, “I was flying when I got a sos message thought I could come help but by time I got here the battle was over. Talk about shock when I exited Hyper Space to see Two Star Defenders, Eighteen MC-80, Twenty-two assault frigates mark II, Twenty-four Nebulon B-Frigates, Twenty-four MC-40, Twenty MC-30, 45 CR-90, Six MC-85 and 24 DP-20. Not to mention all the fighters. So, you are Ural?”
Ural, “Yes I am so glade to meet you Master Skywalker.”
Luke, “So this is a conclave, looks pretty nice for a building from the Old Republic. Any who, where are the kids, Kyle?
Kyle, “Rick, Jeff, Kenta, Juan, and Turtleboy, are somewhere inside.”
Luke, “Might as well go find them. Also, you have a new mission.”
Luke, “Hunt down Kantiss and destroy his Mandalorian fleet.”
Kyle, “Sounds good.”
After bidding the Adults goodbye Luke heads into the conclave to see what the kids are up too. Inside the conclave, the kids are gathering up the vibro blades and swords. As the kids are gathering up the weapons, they feel a presence, quickly putting down the weapons all five kids activate their light sabers. As Luke is walking in, he sees several colors up ahead.
Luke, “Weird lights.”
As Luke enter the courtyard, he sees five kids with lightsaber activated
Luke, “Ok you five you can deactivate those weapons now.”
Rick, “Yea who are you to tell us, for all we know you an Imperial.”
Luke, “My name is Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker.”
Rick and the other upon hearing that name deactivate their lightsabers.
Luke, “I see some of you are dual wielding while one of you have a double-bladed lightsaber all with unique colors. So, tell me kids what color lightsabers do you have?”
Rick, “Mine is Permoforst, found on the planet Hoth.”
Kenta, “Same as Rick, since he is my new friend and we like the same thing.”
Jeff, “My two colors reprsent my family crest.”
Juan, “Mine is Viridian, since I have not yet built one I found this one inside the concalve.”
Turtleboy, “Mine is Sapphire blue which I find very nice.”
Luke, “I see I can also sense your lightsaber have been modified with components and modifying crystal as well.”
All five at once, “Yes Master Skywalker.”
As Luke and the kids are talking Aries comes walking in. Aries see the kids talking to someone and Aries realizes who it is.
Aries, “Greetings Master Skywalker.”
Luke, “Aries nice to see you again, I hope you found your time here most enjoyable?”
Aries, “Yes here I thought it would be a gathering mission when in fact we take part in a battle.”
As Luke and the kids are talking Kyle and the rest come in.
Luke, “Now that we are all here, I have some news.”
Frank, “What news is that Master Skywalker?”
Luke, “I have decided to open up a second Academy, here.”
Ural, “Ural likes this idea but it is just Ural and one student for now.”
Luke, “That why, Frank, Tye, and Aries will be assigned to this Conclave.”
Frank, Tye and Aries at once what!!!
Luke, “I need at least three masters here and with you two here along with Aries, it seems like a good fit.”
Aries, “Well although Yavin IV was fun maybe this will not be so bad after all, I can explore this place.”
Rick, “We pretty much explored most of this conclave but fill free to search some more.”
Luke, “Now that is settled, Kyle it’s time for you to head after Kantiss.”
Kyle, “I understand Master.”
Soon all the sentinel class shuttles and load lifter landed to ferry Kyle and his ground forces back to the Endor.
As Ural, Frank, Tye, Aries and Juan watch everyone leave.
Back on board the Endor
Kyle, “Sergio, I want to leave your strike group here to back up the Dantoonie Space forces.”
Sergio, “I was given orders to link up with you sir.”
As Kyle and Sergio are talking, they are interrupted by a transmission for Chilo.
Chilo, “Kyle now that the crisis is over, my fleet and I need to head out to chase Warlord Mikey.”
Kyle, “I understand.”
After the transmission ends Ten assault frigates mark 2, Six MC40, 20 CR 90 and Six MC85, Six MC80, Ten Nebulon-B escort Frigate, as well as, Eight MC-30 frigates along with their fighters jump out of the system.”
Kyle, “Now I know your strike group was given orders to link up with me, but with Admiral’s Roger Soloar forces, I have way more than enough ships to hunt down Kantiss.”
Sergio, “You are right.”
After the conversation Sergio heads back to his MC 80 named Banshee, he orders his ships out of the formation. Soon after the order is given, one MC-80, six MC-40 Cruiser, four MC-30 frigates four Nebulon B-Frigates, four assault frigates mark 2, and 12 CR-90, exit formation of the ships. After this force Separates. The combined force of Kyle and Roger which now include 12 MC 80, 2 Star Defenders, 14 Nebulon B-Frigates, 34 CR-90, 14 MC-40 Cruisers, 12 MC-30 frigates, 12 Assault Frigates Mark Two and 24 DP-20, jump into HyperSpace to hunt down Kantiss and destroy him. After two years of playing cat and mouse, Kyle finally corners, Kantiss and in a massive space Battle above the planet Hoth, Kantiss fleet is destroyed along with him. After finishing this task, Kyle fleet which is known known as Duron Fleet, heads back to the planet Onderon.
2 years later outskirts of Onderon system Kyle’s fleet exits hyperspace, catching the Onderon home defense fleet off guard.
On board the Venator class Star Destroyers Talia.
Sensor, “Admiral Velia, we have a massive formation of ships exiting hyperspace.”
Velia, “Get an id on them and alert the ships and fighters!”
Sensor, “Got the id’s sir, but they are showing up as New Republic id?”
Velia, “New Republic what are their ships doing in the neck of the woods?
Suddenly a hologram of a Jedi shows up.
Kyle, “Admiral Velia, I hope my fleet coming out of hyperspace has not put you at alarm?”
Velia, “Kyle Duron, I see you are back and with a massive fleet under your command.”
Kyle, “Yes, sir they are my personal fleet.”
Velia, “You heading to the planet?”
Kyle, “Yep, I am not bringing the whole fleet near the planet just the Onderon.”
Velia, “The Onderon?”
Kyle, “I named one of my corvettes after the planet. It is my personal ship when I want to go into other system with a small force and not draw attention.”
Velia, “Well permission to pass, also your dad had the landing field enlarge, so I think you can land that vet, right at the palace.”
Kyle, “Will do.”
Kyle, “Max, gather 12 of your best pilots, you will be our fighter escort into the planet.”
Max, “Ok no problem.”
After this talk Kyle, along with the field brothers, Rick, Kenta, Jeff, and Turtleboy transfer to the Onderon, along with 100 men from the 50th assault group.
As the Onderon along with the 12 fighters leave the massive fleet they head towards the planet where the Defense fleet salutes them. As the 13-ship force approaches the palace, it alerts Bruce and his wife.
Bruce, “What the hell I thought I told those fighter jockeys not to fly so close to the town.”
Mary, “Umm honey, it’s not our fighters” Bruce looks up to see a Corellian corvette, along with 12 fighters are landing.
Seeing the ships landing, Bruce and Mary go to see who has come to visit them. As the vet lands, the landing ramp is extended and walking down the ramp our 100 troops who flank the ramp. After that, Kyle along with his group exits the ship. Seeing his parents Rick runs up to them shouting mom dad I am back.
Bruce, “Well sweety looks like our sons our back.”
Mary, “It sure seems that way.”
After hugging his parents Rick, wants to tell them all about his adventures, but he has to wait till Kyle joins them and they head inside.
Bruce, “I been following the news, son seems like you have gotten into a lot of trouble and drawn the ire, of a certain senator from Bothan.”
Kyle, “He is all talk, I saved a planet, brought in an Imperial Warlord, destroyed Kantiss and his forces.”
Bruce, “From what our senator has told me he is enraged about exploits.”
Kyle, “Too bad, I fought several battles, retaken one world, destroyed who knows how many Imperial ships, took out Kantiss, and save Dantoonie from an invasion.”
Mary, “So what is your plan now son?”
Kyle, “Time to relax and await orders from Luke.”
Bruce, “I saw you landed one ship, don’t you have our fleet anymore?”
Kyle, “I still have it asked Admiral Velia to show you what he is looking at.”
Bruce heads over to the communication terminal Bruce to Velia beam to the video screen down here what you see.
Velia, “Sure thing governor.”
On screen is Kyle’s massive fleet
Bruce, “Ok now that is a battle force.”
After talking with the parents Rick enters the room asking if he can go out into town to see some of his friends.
Bruce, “Sure you may go but take some guards with you.”
Rick, “Dad I am eight now and a Jedi, I can take care of myself.”
Mary, “He does have a point.”
Bruce, “You may go.”
As Rick heads out Bruce asked Kyle to head into town as well.
Kyle, “Sure let’s hope I do not have a repeat of the first time I came back.”
Bruce, “Ahh yes about that I had to deal with the mess but it was easy.”
Kyle, “You should have seen the look on the police when I said who I was.”
Bruce, “That was mentioned how you used your full title and name.”
Kyle, “They jumped the gun not knowing what was going on.”
Bruce, “They did, now go follow your brother.”
As Rick heads out he grabs a speeder along with Austin and 9 troopers and head out….
