After successfully completing their previous job for Slussk, the party is rewarded with a recommendation and job offer with the Decensor Sector Traders Union.
Their expenses paid the party travels on board the rickety wreck of a GR-75 Medium Transport The Wobbly Mynock, to meet their contact with the Union on board Traders Union Refueling and Resupply Station B1-342. Expecting nothing The Mynock dropped out of hyperspace to immediately find themselves under attack by a dark blue Correllian Corvette. Taking significant damage the party are forced to abandon ship in the escape pods.
The parties escape pods "land" in the main hanger of the space station and are immediately under attack by pirates who are raiding the station. A brief firefight ensues, with the party taking out the pirates in short order and getting in contact with the survivors of the space station crew, who are locked up in the command center with no power and their blast door being attacked by pirates. The station master, Garlish Honglu, who enlist the party to help get the generator up and running so that they could call for support from the Imperial Navy and clear out the pirates attacking the station.
The party succeeded in both tasks, taking some serious damage to their most vulnerable team members in the process. Fighting their way through three levels of the space station the party discovered that the pirates are part of a crew who were a logo made of crimson tentacles wrapped in a fist on a field of dark blue and that their original job may be in jeopardy as it is not known if the ancient relics they were to ship survived the pirate raid.
The fighting culminated in the leader of the raid forcing the party into a full frontal assault by calling the Corvette to threaten the space station. In a brief but aggressive firefight, the party took out the raid leader and 5 of the 6 of his goons. The final pirate terrified by the skill of the party surrendered but was shot down by his own leader who used his dying breaths to shoot the traitor. At this point, two imperial corvettes arrived and the pirate corvette jumped into hyperspace taking The Mynock with it.
In the aftermath of the fight, the party received a 1000 credit reward from the Imperials for defending the station. It was also discovered that the Pirate crew got into the station by docking with an external port and sneaking in, disabling the power generator. Once power was down, and help couldn't be summoned, the Pirate Corvette arrived and disgorged pirates to take the base and eliminate survivors.
Having fought so quickly and bravely the Pirates couldn't recover their transport, still docked with the external port and so the traders union, as thanks for their assistance gave the transport ship over to the party and granted them free docking space and accommodation on the station.
The crew has a ship, a base of operations and have established themselves as capable people in the eyes of the Empire and the Traders Union. Where will they go from here?
