After the Rebel fleet drops out of hyperspace, the Porgatu flies to the flagship where the party gets their reward and has an interesting talk with General Syndulla. They’re commissioned as Rebel agents and given their first mission. They break from the fleet and fly off to Ambria where Kantarra contacts Gwar and arranges for a rendezvous where the party now is on “The Back Room,” a space station orbiting Ambria III. As they wait, Kantarra and Cheebs visit a weapons shop.
The Porgatu crew gathers intel on their target and other mysterious players in a game they don’t fully understand. The droids find evidence that Nix’s faction is in turn watching the party, and C4-BL3 fries their spying astromech. Eventually they hatch a plan to pose as buyers of the target’s stolen tech – but when they speak to him, they learn of the tech’s sinister nature. In a sudden turn of events, the party agrees to spirit the target offworld – just as a rival faction bursts into the Ugly Bantha with guns blazing.
While Kantarra “delays” the Metatheran thugs, Cheebs & C4-BL3 follow Crag and recover the camtono with a threatening aura. Meeting back up at the Porgatu, they were tailed and noted the Nautolan heading for a nearby docking bay. Launching into orbit, they see a gunship follow. Cheebs lays a trap for their pursuer at a planetoid in the nearby Gizer system. Kantarra reveals a dark bargain struck with Crag. But lying in ambush they are in turn surprised by the early arrival of 4 starfighters which come in from all sides of the planetoid with ECM jamming blaring. The Porgatu opens fire, badly damaging 2 of the craft, but one of the unknown starfighters lands laser blasts on the shuttle, sending it into a spin.
The crew starts to prep for its next job, listening for rumors of the “ghost ship” Gen. Syndulla set them to find. C4-BL3 is dazzled by a chance meeting with a personal hero, an INN reporter, but the others whisk him away before he can give her any data. Kantarra’s contact arrives, and the hand-off and job payment comes off without a hitch. They launch, heading outsystem, acquiring and compiling data to help them in their upcoming search of Ambria’s asteroid belt.
The Porgatu & its attackers cease fire and are soon joined by an entire fleet of damaged vessels arriving insystem. It’s the “Gamma Group” of the infamous Rebel Alliance! The Rebels – including *their* G-1A, tracking them from Phaseera – are keenly interested in the shipment of Trionex the party recovered from Pirin. The Porgatu arranges a trade for salvaged weaponry, docks with one of the capital ships, and begins repairs. They agree to go along with the Rebels as the fleet jumps outsystem. C4-BL3 upgrades their computer security.
