Cruising toward the asteroid belt, the crew builds a makeshift decoy. Entering the belt, their sensors are wiped out, the decoy doesn’t seem to trigger any reaction, and they lose track of it. Groping blindly, the Porgatu suddenly passes through a magnetic field and discovers a blasted Imperial base inside. They are bounced by 3 strange TIE designs, but they use their new weaponry to good effect and blast all three. Suddenly a hulking ghost ship appears and catches them in a tractor beam.
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.
