Total Recall

The aftermath effects of Kixi's successful attempts in altering time using knowledge from the Orb of Passage continues to effect the now Jedi Knight Kixi Rajki. Through dreams and nightmares, she constantly feels the harsh and dramatic effects of her own actions continuously for many years after. Not knowing or understanding the reason for these disturbances, except that the events appear to have happened somewhere in her life, in some sort of future-past that feels so vivid, that she actually strangely feels that she has lived them already. With no one truly able to assist her, consequently Kixi is left to her own means to slowly unravel the mystery that has haunted her mind for years. Finally though, a breakthrough, while on a mission at the heart of Sith controlled Coruscant, by fate and the will of the Force, she encounters a ghost from her would be future-past, who ultimately proves vital in her first steps in remembering, and unlocking the secrets of her now altered future-past.

9. Chapter 5

 

Mako was in close pursuit to the Trandoshan's ship. By the time Braj'tec had entered the cockpit, they had already broken out of Coruscant's atmosphere and were in the blackness of space. Although Blackness wasn't all it was, as Coruscant stood out well below them as a bright lit up ball. And of course the many ships in its orbit and beyond.
 
"I'm slowly closing in, I should have him within missile lock range in approximately less than a minute". Zasakamel spoke out calmly.  
 
"Good. For what he just did to Kixi, he deserves to die."
 
Mako said softly and then with deep concern in her voice asked regarding Kixi, while she continued staring directly ahead at the ship she so much wanted destroy. Not long ago she hadn't really cared of the Trandoshan. She just wanted Kixi to do whatever she had to, to free the slaves, however after what he had just did to her soulmate and her best friend, all she could think of was payback.
 
"How is Kixi doing back there?"
 
"She has suffered a bit of a beating and is hurt, but she's strong. She'll make it. The med droid is attending to her now, and she'll get full treatment once we get back to the Ueshiba. Kes is at her side too."
 
"Kes ah!" Mako said in a very distasteful voice. Mako and Kes didn't get along. In fact Kes resented and despised Mako.
 
"I guess Kes is no good up here at the moment, so she might as well keep poor Kixi company." Mako said sarcastically, clearly not taking a liking to the fact that her injured Kixi was alone with that distasteful assassin. 
 
"Okay Mako, I know you would rather be with Kixi right now, and that relations between Kes and yourself are tense. Once this this is over you can be with her, however right now I need you to fully concentrate on the task at hand." Braj'tec who hovered directly behind the pilot emphasised. 
 
"Right." Mako acknowledged. 
 
"Looks like we have a problem, look at the starboard viewpoint. Ships incoming and closing in on our position, and closing in fast." Zasalamel pointed out with extreme concern.
 
"Looks like Sith fighters. Four of them dammit!"
 
"One of those alone is vastly superior to us."
 
"Break off your pursuit." Braj'tec wisely advised.
 
"What! I've almost got a lock." Mako protested. 
 
"And by the time you do, they'll have us for breakfast meaning we'll be either all killed or captured, neither a prospect I want to experience."
 
"But..."
 
"That's an order Mako, break off pursuit now."
 
Mako reluctantly complied. She broke off the pursuit and started off in a direction to pull away from the closing Sith fighters.
 
"I'm redirecting all weapons power to engines. I'm also directing all forward shields to engines. Since we're running, we won't be needing them now and can use the extra boost." Mako said frantically fiddling with the ship's controls.
 
"Absolutely!" Braj'tec said concurring with Mako. 
 
"Zasalamel, punch in these hyperspace jump coordinates in the Nav computer. It's the location to where the Ueshiba should've jumped to earlier on and not far from here."
 
The Sith fighters were still closing in on the D5-mantis' position, despite Mako's best efforts to increase their speed. The Sith fighters were now within firing range. A volley of blue bursts came out of their cannons. It wasn't laser fire, but ion blasts. Their intent was clearly to capture them, not kill. Although one would beg to differ in the end as being captured by the Sith would spell out a torturous and painful death. The D5-Mantis shuddered and shook violently as ion fire from the Sith fighters hit it again and again.
 
"How long until we can make the jump to hyperspace?" Braj'tec demanded to know.
 
"Around 40 seconds at best." Mako yelled as she performed several evasive manoeuvres to avoid some, but clearly not all of the Sith ion blasts.
 
"That is cutting it to close to my liking dammit!" Braj'tec responded flustered.
 
"Shields at 20%, and falling fast, they're too quick, we're not going to make it!" Mako cried out aloud in panic.
 
Sparks began going off from controls and panels all over the ship as it took more and more fire. The ship violently bucked and rocked as suddenly another larger ship emerged from hyperspace directly ahead of them.
 
"What in the name of......... It's the Ueshiba!" Mako said pointing her finger out towards the much larger ship looming out not far ahead of them. 
 
Volleys of laser fire suddenly burst out of the Defiant class battleship. The four Sith fighters that were attacking the D5-mantis were vaporised within seconds. They had no time to react as the Ueshiba had just appeared suddenly out of nowhere. It's third officer currently in its command, Jhes Je'Kesik was by this stage getting good at quick strike ambushes at enemy ships. Previously she had used the Ueshiba to attack the Trandoshan's Black Talon in a surprise ambush to successfully disable it.
 
"Boy are we glad to see you. How did you know we were in trouble?" Braj'tec asked through the ship's comm unit.
 
"Kixi, you can have your captain Kixi to thank". Jhes replied coolly. 
 
"Kixi? But she is back in the med room getting treatment. How was she...."
 
Kes entered the cockpit and cut Braj'tec's speech off.
 
"She sensed the Sith threat through the Force. She then contacted the Ueshiba in which they were not far and gave them our coordinates. She never gives up and is one tough warrior. Oh yeah, she'll recover, her injuries aren't nowhere near as bad as they look."
 
"Okay peoples, enough of the chit chatter, you can talk, banter, glorify each other or whatever later, we're not out of the woods just yet. Sith capital ships heading our way. Get the heck inside the hanger bay now so we can say goodbye to this fucking fucked up place." Jhes said out dryly. 
 
"You'll get no objection regarding that from us." Mako was already almost in the hangar bay of the Ueshiba as Braj'tec and Jhes were exchanging words. Not long after they had landed in the Ueshiba's hangar bay safely. The battleship was already in the process of powering up its hyperdrive, however there would be one more piece of drama that would yet unfold.
