Star Wars: Crisis on Cloud City
Setting the Scene
Walex Blissex:Remarkable piece of
engineering don't you think?
Domu Hogyl:It's nothing compared to what
that ExOne droid prototype is supposed to be capable of
Togawa Rybu:Controlling an entire capital
ship or space station? I'll believe it when I see it!
Devin Kasan:Hey, I've heard it can do more
than that. Something about being able to actually redesign & rebuild
the ship it's piloting
Walex Blissex:In theory, that's what Dr
Len believes it can do and that's why we're going to meet him. He'd like
me to design a ship to specifically house the ExOne droid.
Lagon: So a ship with one of these droids
plugged into it might learn from it's experiences and actually modify
the ship to radjust to a new environment?
Walex Blissex:Precisely. Since crews
would be minimal there would be extra room for reconstruction machinery
Dour Han-Daall:So why did Dr Len ask for
Oliver: It's a very powerful machine. If it
fell into the wrong hands...
Damu Hogyl: Yeah, think what might have
happened if one of those droids had been in command of the Death Star
when our guys attacked it
Lagon: It would probably have seen right
through our plan and found a way to stop it
Dour Han-Daall: You don't know that for sure. It's
just a bunch of theories and speculation
Domu Hogyl: So was the Death Star at one time
Devin Kasan: Hey, if the Empire gets its hands
on this machine there's no telling what they might do with it
Oliver: That's right. So keep in mind we're
supposed to look out for this Vreen character - Dr Len's assistant
Togawa Rybu: Does he have imperial connections?
Walex Blissex: If he does we have no record of
it. All that Dr Len told me was that he was acting suspiciously.
Oliver: I think we've got company
Devin Kasan: They look like Cloud Car escorts.
Why haven't they hailed us?
Dour Han-Daall: I have a bad feeling abou
Lagon: If they're on to us, they must be
after Dr Len too
Togawa Rybu: Great. A nice relaxing visit to
