Stick an Umbrella in that Lightsaber and Call It a Drink!

3 July 2007-

So we got onto the cruise ship with no problems more serious than interstellar lifeboat drill, but then what to do? With hours to kill before we had to deliver the data we acquired to Rebel forces in the Maelstrom, we wandered around the cruise ship exploring. We discovered that there was, in fact, a sizable Imperial contingent on board, although they have been keeping a low profile by bivouacking on the Engineering deck, away from the attention of most of the civilian passengers. They don't appear to be doing much, and we felt that they might be trying to assault the Maelstrom base by using the cruise ship to hide their approach, but there aren't many of them. They also appear to have a local Moff onboard, although he hasn't been seen on the public decks, so he's not just taking a pleasure cruise himself. Hmmm...

We eventually went down to check the Engineering deck ourselves, but only Craig's character was stealthy enough to make it. He managed to sneak onto the Imperials' shuttle, but then got caught in the act. Next time we meet, a rescue- we hope!
