this is a scientific experiment in whether it's possible to give a force ghost a heart attack

They might need it... Everything's getting busy fast.

Permalink

Not that that's a bad thing. Means they're getting closer to the strike.

Permalink

Yeah.

She gets Lily set up with the scouting rotations - gets herself more trained -

And it doesn't, actually, take them long to find the base in question. Lily has a sense, apparently, an itch of which way's the right way.

Permalink

This Force stuff is pretty handy, it seems.

Permalink

Yeah.

It's honestly pretty lucky that apparently the only classically trained Force user left is on their side. Everyone else is a few steps shy of self taught.

(Or, well, is Vader's ghost, who is hopefully on their side.)

Permalink

As of the last time they had contact, she was.

Permalink

Yeah. Seems likely to last, at least.

She's probably pissed at Lord Stuck-Up, if nothing else.

Permalink

They'll see when they get her back.

Permalink

She nods.

Now it's just planning the actual assault.

Permalink

And the associated diversions.

Permalink

Anathema's got a lot of the diversions down - though she sometimes needs Ellaita's help interfacing with the rest of the resistance - and she relays as much as she knows about the layout of First Order bases like this. Lord Dickwad will probably be keeping whatever containment he has set up for Anakin nearby him...

Permalink

Which means their odds of having to face him directly are high. Not ideal.

Permalink

Something they should prepare for... A larger strike team wouldn't help against him, though - probably their best bet is releasing Vader first, but that's not something they can count on.

Permalink

No, but they might want to consider delaying tactics that could enable some to break off and achieve that.

Permalink

Yeah...

Lily might be their best bet to break Vader out. She might have more of a sense of where her teacher even is, anyways, and she knows. Like. Anything about the Force.

Also that leaves the preteen not fighting the murderous asshole.

Permalink

Solid plan all around, then.

Permalink

They should use the stealth techniques they've been working on for the actual infiltration - probably all three of them working together, so there's less of a chance Lily will get distracted or something.

Permalink

That'll limit the total size of the team, even with them all working together.

Permalink

Though they were considering a small team anyways.

Permalink

Right, so not too much of a downside.

Permalink

Yeah.

All they need now is to decide on any other team members - and pick a ship or ships to approach in.

Permalink

The one she and Lily took from Jakku is surprisingly good and won't be on any of the First Order's registries yet, and has space for two or three more.

Permalink

That works pretty well, yeah - and keeping in one ship makes it easier to hide themselves in the Force.

Permalink

Most of the people Ellaita knows best here are pilots, and won't really be maximally useful. Would any of Anathema's girls be willing to join?

Permalink

"I think so. We've got a good spread of abilities, too, and our clone line's usually slotted for special operations like this."
