Hunter had lost track of time had lost track of where he was all he new was that he was close. Close to finding the Sith fleet. It was now coming back to him slowly but surely. He was on the planet Merker, looking for a link to the Sith, and the force had left him. It had left him when he landed they asked to do a blood test and then a blaster bolt to the back. Why did the Sith want him alive? Not important, need to warn the Jedi about this new power the Sith have developed. His room looked like a standard room but he knew it couldn’t be. He went to the window and looked out two stories up. Not impossible to escape. He went to work.
John Parker could not believe it. A Jedi had inflated Merker. He thought that he had them all accounted for but apparently not. Interrogate was the first step containment was the second and then well he would see if he needed to implement the final phase early.
“Sir” a guard said “The prisoner is still inside sir there is no way he could of escaped. I have been here the entire time.”
“I ordered a armed guard in the room who is in the room?” Asked John’
“Sir” the guard replied “no such order came through.”
John slammed open the door and for some reason he was not surprised to see that the room was empty. “Do we have a picture of him?”
“Yes sir and we Identified him recently as Hawk Hunter.” Stated the guard
“Alert all ship that he has escaped and that NO ship leaves without my permission.” Stated John. With that the guard went to relay the information but John had feeling that it was already to late. He spoke in to his comlink “I need to talk to Frank now no questions.”
Hunter was out of the room and in the spaceport when the speaker grounded all flights. He knew that it was because of him but he was not going to give up now. After all he was in a ship all ready. He took off and skimmed the trees he received a broad band hail ordering him to land. He paid no attention. After about two clicks he started his accent into space. When he reached orbit he was shocked to see that there were no capital ships in the system and thankfully the force had returned to him The planet it self as still blank but that was of no concern he would head to the maw installation and come back with the weapon that would destroy the planet and the Sith With it.
John had already given the order to abandon the base when he got conformation that the stolen fighter likely had the Jedi onboard. He decided to take as many Yalsamire as he could since it was very likely that the Jedi would make coming back here very difficult. Oh well he thought time to find a new home.

Most of the time during war things seems to happen so fast that you can’t keep up. This war was very different. After the first attack at Hoth the Sith fleet struck every week at a different target but there were no great battles only mascaras. It took almost two months for the Jedi to finish reporting to there positions in the fleet. The new Jedi council only had three members at this time Baja, Hunter, and Clayton. These three Jedi planed everything for the Jedi. Frank was in charge of disturbing the fleet and was feeling pressure from the chancellor because the fleets were never in the right place at the right. Hunter was looking for the Sith secret base and finally thought he had the trail. Baja was on Courscant Meeting with the Senate and was starting to get frustrated with the politicians they did pass a few bills none that Baja liked. One was that all babied born in the Alliance had to be checked to see if they could be trained to be Jedi because of the recent disaster. The new temple was not built on Courscant because it was determined that the Jedi temple might bring the wrath of the Sith to Courscant it was moved back to Yavin 4. There was a fleet but no Jedi Commander. Some one by the name of Frank Sims was put in charge of it because the chancellor wanted to be sure that the ships did not carry out Jedi actions without the Senates approval. Another thing that bother Baja was the fact that there were no Jedi at any of the secret bases. There were just over twenty thousand Jedi left and they were all serving with the fleet save about fifty at Bespin and another hundred scattered around the Galaxy. John Parker had found several Seceret Jedi bases and managed to destroy then all witch was very unsettling for the public. He had done such a good job the Jedi could only assume that they had a spy in there mist feeding information to the Sith. They did not know that the Sith was not sharing any information just reposting the ships so that the planets that were supposed to be attacked were left open. The only thing that went well for the Jedi in fact was that no Jedi students survived the initial attack on the temple. Good because Group 22 would of killed the student and who ever was there to protect them if they had lived. That is how the war is what happened in the first year of the war but soon it would take a turn. A turn that would change everything.

John Parker was at his home. Not his real home but the only place in the galaxy that he felt safe. When people start killing Jedi they need a place to feel safe if for no other reason then to relax. Not that John had time to relax but there probably was not a safer place in the galaxy then right here in his command center. Reports were coming in from all over the galaxy the Jedi were falling and now a mysterious fleet had destroyed a Alliance fleet at Hoth. A message recovered said that attacks would continue until all the Jedi were exterminated. This was not by any means a good thing that meant that the Sith had return and that the killing off of Jedi for the time being need to be slowed down. The chancellor had told him that the order outlawing Jedi had to be postponed for a little bit. To make sure that the Sith could be destroyed. John had no intention of waiting for the Jedi to kill the Sith he was going to go after them too just to make sure the job was done right. If the Jedi could eliminate the Sith it they would of done so years ago. All he needed was bait and he thought he could get some that the Sith could not refuse.
John taped his com-link “Frank how long will it take you to get a team ready for a trip to Courscant?”
Frank responded “About an hour we could be in hyperspace, why what on Courscant?”
John “The reaming Jedi kids. I am pretty sure that we can get the chancellor to put them on a ship for safe keeping and hijack it to ransom to the Sith.”
Frank “are you kidding me you can’t be serious about turning over the Jedi kids to the Sith. They would slaughter them in cold blood they might not even let they ship leave they might destroy it just to be sure they get them all.”
“Or they might want to capture them and turn them to the dark side and when they do we kill them. Besides I would rather have the Sith kill them then me.” Stated John “Besides I don’t plan on letting the Sith leave that meeting anyway.”
“I understand” said Frank and he would follow orders no matter how much he though that they were morally wrong. He had given up on morals when he took the job years ago. No what bothered him was that this order had came from John and that the best part the part that made John a much better person then Frank was dead, and that made him worry not for the Jedi, or the Sith but for John himself because at this rate John the person that Frank knew would be dead long before the war was over.

It was like picking names out of a hat thought Baja. He hardly new any of the Jedi that were supposed to be almost ready to be promoted to master. The few he did no he dismissed almost immediately. He had pick at least three other Jedi to help him was his thinking. The four of them would then rebuild the order. Four Jedi almost deciding the fate of the galaxy while a war was going on but desperate times calls for desperate measures. Baja was so into his work that he did not notice when Hunter walked in.
“You wanted to see me master?” asked Hunter
“Yes,” replied Baja “I wanted to ask you if you were serious about being my apperitance or if you were doing it just to tag along after the Sith?”
“I would never lie about something like that.” Responded Hunter “I still feel that I need to improve in my lightsaber techniques to be effective as a Jedi but I feel that I have improved a great deal in a short amount of time. Why do you ask?”
“I agree that you have greatly improved in only a couple of days you are very strong in the force and I feel that you no longer need my instruction.” Said Baja
“Are you saying that I am no longer you apprentice?” asked Hunter
Baja was quite for a moment before he spoke and when he did it was not what he had expected to say when he asked for Hunter to come he had planed on telling hunter that he could not take a apprentice right now and that he would be fine but something told him that he need Hunter here to help reestablish the Jedi. “Yes, I am promoting you to the level of Master and asking you to join the Jedi Council. I feel that you would be of great help in what needs to be done.”
Hunter was speech less. He did not know what to say. In all honestly he had great disillusion with the old Council. Now he was supposed to help form the new one. However the words he spoke did not match his feelings “I accept on one condition, you let me pick at least one other member to appoint to the council.”
Baja knew even thought he did not know how he knew but he was certin that the force wanted Hunter on the council may be it was to put this person on the council but what ever reason the force had Baja had decided a long time ago that he would serve tha force so the answer was almost automatic “Of course just tell me who they are.”
Then Hawk Hunter utters the words that would change the galaxy for ever. Words that at the time seemed so innocent that that when it all came crashing down Baja never even knew that this was the cause of so muck misery, words that would change the galaxy for ever, words that on the end would bring about the end of the Jedi order. “Clayton Fields, he already set up meeting for Jedi and showed great leadership in the process. I can think of no one better to appoint to the council.”
“Have you ever meat him?” asked Baja
“Once about ten years right before I was put on leave from the military.” Replied Hunter “He seemed very intelligent and like the type of person who we need to reorganize the Jedi order.”
“Okay” was all that Baja said. At the time Baja could not agree more he had actually been thinking about putting him on the council anyway and Hunters approval only reinforced his opinion on the matter. After all neither one of them knew that Clayton Fields was not a perfect Jedi according to the old council but neither one of them were either. If that would have been the only problem the galaxy might have been fine but that was only a small problem. The big problem the problem that would be talked about years and years after the Jedi Order was no more was how could a member of the Sith become a member of the Jedi council?

It was a rare day when Chancellor Pentad was surprised. You do not become Supreme Chancellor if you do not have a good idea of what is going on around you, but when he heard that the Jedi would be reporting for duty immediately to help command the fleet’s against this new enemy he could not believe it. Not because he thought the Jedi knew he wanted them dead but because he thought that all of the masters were dead. Only a master would be bold enugh to give that sort of order but then again stranger things have happen. What he truly wanted to know is who was leading the Jedi. He needed to know and soon. If it was some one cleaver enugh to figure out what he was up to he would have to be elminated. If not then he could be strung along for quite awhile. However the message had no sign of who sent it, it only said that the Jedi would be reporting for duty with in the next week. No matter he would shortly be able to give the location of every Jedi to Group 22 and that would be the end of the problem. If only he could use the enemy fleet to make the public outraged with the Jedi then the armed forces could help.
“General Calcil all enemy forces have been destroyed.” Stated the sensor officer.
“Good prepare to jump out of system and head to an unpopulated system any will do navigation. Communication I want you to record a message and leave it hear for who ever comes to find this fleet.” Stated General Calciil
“Yes sir ready when you are” replied the sensor officer.
“Citizens of the Galactic Alliance we hear by order you to impression or kill all Jedi in one stander week. If our demands are not meet we will destroy one system a week until they are this will be your only warning.” Stated General Calcil “If you can not accomplish this task in one week but show progress we will hold off on the destruction of targets. Also if the senate agrees to have us help we will stop all plans of attack on targets immediately.” He then gave the signal to stop recording. “All ships jump on my mark two one mark”
Some where in the Happies system
Darth Muskel was never happy between the attack on the Jedi Temple to General Calcil deciding to attack Hoth as a warning to the Alliance he pretty much knew that the Sith could not stay hidden for much longer. The death of Darth Humdon and his apprentice was a huge blow to his plans now we only had six Sith out there and none that he could sacrifice to throw the Jedi off the real trail. No losing any one of the remaining Jedi would be a huge loss one that he could not afford. He needed a new plan and for the first time in years he did not know who his enemies are or his allies. How ever carried out the attack on the temple might be an ally for now but in the long run he doubted it. More likely it was a new enemy he would have to eliminate sooner or later. And the concept of tackling who ever destroyed the Jedi temple so easily did not make him happy.

Secret Jedi Base Bespin
When Baja first docked with the Jedi base he was surprised to see how many Jedi were hear. He knew that there were not many safe places to gather that were not know but he figured more would of went into hiding or to Alliance buildings but it was pointless to wonder how many were here or else where he needed to find out if the Jedi council had logged his appointment as a master. If they had then he would have to figure out what to do then and if not he would continue on with the last mission the council had given him.
“Hunter I want you to be ready to leave. If they don’t have me down as a master I want to be ready to leave for Merker immediately.” Said Baja
“You almost sound like you don’t want to be a master.” Stated Hunter
“Just have the ship ready to launch I will be back shortly.” States Baja but what Hawk had just said had hit rather close to home. He was worried about what he would do to lead the Jedi. There were a few Knights that he would appoint to the council almost immediately and order all Jedi into hiding until further notice. That at least seemed like the most prudent course of action. What knights should he promote so many questions were running through his mind that he did not notice that a Jedi walk up to him.
“Excuse me name please.” Stated a Jedi that Baja did not recognize he did notice that she had a data pad and because he did not answer quickly enough she asked again, “name please.”
“Baja Salend” stated Baja “I need to see who ever is in charge here”
“Well let me see Baja Salend. It says that you are a master, I thought that all of the masters were on Courscant when the temple was destroyed. Never mind why didn’t you say so to begin with this way please.” Stated the female
“Who is in charge here” asked Baja “and I did not know that the council had informed Bespin about my promotion it happen shortly before the temple was destroyed.”
“Well we are hear Jedi Knight Peter Coneak is in charge.” And with that she opened the door “Jedi Master Baja Salend here to see you Peter.”
“It is great to see that at least one master survived the attack.” Said Peter “I was beging to think that all of them dies on Courscant that day.”
“Is there any reports about who did it yet?” asked Baja “or the number of Jedi still out there?”
“No” said Peter “but there is a rumor on the hollow net that a republic fleet was whipped out in the Hoth system. There has been no reports from any Jedi in that system since the initial attack on the temple though. I was trying to get a Jedi to take a look but none volunteered to go and with out a chain of command there is little I could make any one do.”
Baja stood there thinking and what came to his head was troubling. He now knew for almost cretin that he was the only Jedi master left and that now was not the worst news. The Alliance was under attack the Sith were back and Jedi were still disappearing. He knew what he should do but how with everything going on could he order the Jedi into hiding? No he would have to do something completely different something he never thought he would have to do when he was granted the rank of master. “Send out the following message to all Jedi Report to your assigned ship and prepare for war.”

Hyperspace in transit to Hoth system
“Will be coming out of hyperspace in two, one,” The navigation officer was saying “hello Hoth system.” What was supposed to be so alliance ships turned out to be a full flagged space battle.
“Report” said John almost immediately.
“It looks like the Alliance fleet was taken almost totally by surprise. They are not showing any signs of cohesion.” This came from the tactical officer. “The other ships are simply decimating them sir, they must have a couple of interdictor cruisers and all of the Alliance ships are caught in the field.”
“Well” Frank began “it looks like the Jedi are as good as dead and looks like some one has decided to take out some frustration on the Alliance. My only question is that fleet working with the Sith?”
John did not want to think about it. The entire reason the fleet was hear was to hold twenty Jedi for him to kill. It seemed to him like he had ordered more people to there death, and what he was about to do did not sit well with him at all. “Take us out of here before either fleet notices were hear set a course for Merker. Frank you have the bridge also send a message that the Fleet in the hoth system was destroyed.”
Frank was at a lost for words he simply said “okay” as John left the bridge he knew that this was the right course of action but seeing john go about it made him uneasy John was always the one who could not just let people die and hear he was not even trying to save those people. Was this war already bring out the worst in him if so he felt sorry for anyone that could use the force.

For the first time in Baja’s life he did not know what to do. He felt a great disturbance in the force and tried to contact the Jedi Council but got no reply. Shortly after his new appetence showed him the Holonet footage and he new they were in trouble. When ever he had doubt before he would simply let the force guide him but even the force could not help him. It was then that he and Hunter decided to go to Bespin. It was Bespin where the Jedi had long ago built a base. A base that only the Jedi were supposed to know about, from there they could find out what other Jedi Survived what was all ready being called the black attack. Baja had no way of knowing how many Jedi survived that attack but he knew that who ever did would be looking for leadership and as a master he would have to give it. Especially since the Jedi Council was not responding to hails. It would take a day to reach Bespin but Baja still did not know what he was going to do. He was just granted the rank of master and had never attended a council meeting. All he could do is trust in the force and hope that it would guide him.
“Master” said Hunter “we are receiving a Holocam message on the Jedi frequency. It is from the Jedi investigating the incident on Bouthie. They say that two of the people who were killed are certainly Sith.”
“Is there any other news from any of the other Jedi?” asked Baja
“Just scattered reports I would put the count at just over hundred and fifty. Most of them are heading to either Bespin or Courscant. Clayton Fields has set up a temporary meeting place on Courscant but most of the Jedi seem reluctant to go there after what happen at the temple.” Replied Hunter “There is no word from any other masters, it would appear that you are the only one left.”
“If that is so then when we get to Bespin I will send out the transmission. It is not well know that I was granted the rank of master. The only hope is that the records at Bespin were updated before the temple was attacked, otherwise it would be just my word and it would set a terrible precedent till the council is reestablished.” Baja stated
“Besides if this is an attack on the Jedi not knowing that a master is still alive will only work to our advantage.” finished Hunter.
“Yes my padwan” said Baja “Till we get to Bespin we should not mention that I am alive if possible. Besides since the Sith are out there it is safe to say we are going to be in a lot more trouble before to long.”

Transit to Hoth aboard Freighter Bird of Prey
John Parker still could not believe what he had done. Even thought he asked for volunteers for the mission he still felt that he ordered those men to there death. Four men who made the ultimate sacrifice for the cause, four men that he would never see again. He knew that this would not be easy, eliminating all force users from the galaxy but he did not like ordering men to there death. He and Frank had argued for hours until John finally gave in and okayed the operation. “How long until we reach the Hoth System?” he asked
“About three hour’s sir” replied a member of his crew who he might have to order to her death.
“Good” said John “Be sure to come out of hyperspace well before any instruments couold pick us up I want to be sure that no one knows were there.”
“Eye sir” replied the lady Just then Frank stormed onto the bridge
“John you are never going to believe this,” Said Frank
“What” ask John
“The chancellor has ordered the Jedi not to go through with the celebration. He said that he did not want civilians hurt if there is another terrorist attack. The chancellor said that it is his opinion that the Jedi have an obligation to find out if the Sith have returned before celebrating anything.” Stated Frank in a rush “He also moved the fourth fleet to the Hoth system to make sure no unauthorized ships do anything to the memorial. The one thing he did make clear though is that he truly believes that the Jedi can not be trusted and has cancelled all leave until this crisis is over.”
“What crisis is he talking about?” ask John
“He did not come out and say but he has to mean the Sith, or the fact the Jedi Council was reported killed. No member has yet to come forward so it would be a good guess that we killed them all.” Stated Frank
“Not one master survived the attack I don’t believe our luck. I knew that most of them were there in preparation of the Celebration but all of them were there well I guess it will take some time for them to organize what about the Jedi that were in The Hoth System” asked John
“Official they are being detained for questioning unofficially they are being held till we can get a cell there to make it look like an accident and make sure none of them surrive.” Stated Frank
“Well we should be there in a couple of hours we need a plan by then.” Said John as He motioned to the conference room. “After you”

Over the Holonet
A female voice is reporting This just in on the planet Bouthie three Jedi were slain by unknown assailants. It appeared to witness that two of them were not part of the Jedi order. There are rumors that two of them went to a warehouse and fought but it appeared that both were burned down by blasters. We are now going live to the Jedi Temple for a statement from the Jedi Council.
Jedi master Strall Comes to a podium and begins to address the gathered reporters. At this time the Jedi would like to reassure the Galactic alliance that we are doing everything possible to uncover what happen on Bouthie. We are certain that in a matter of days that we will have reports in that either confirm or deny the rumors that a Jedi died there. We currently have no records of any Jedi were stationed on Bouthie but we do have several that have desecration to move there if needed. We on the council believe that this was an isolated incident to try and stop the celebration of Jedi master Wedge Antilles death. We want to assure the public at this time that the celebration will go forward as planed. It is the least we can do to honor the greatest Jedi ever. The teacher of Luke Skywalker and the man who single handedly destroyed two Death Stars at the battle of Hoth and planned the destruction of the empire controlled by Grand Admiral Pellion.
Master Strall then gets a weird look on his face and looks around. He sees something and draws his lightsaber. Just as he is about to jump into the crowd after something a blaster bolt comes out of nowhere and hits him right between the eyes. The crowd begins to panic and disperse except for one man. He walks up the steps with a cage of some kind and walks in to the temple doors shortly followed by an explosion. At first it appears that not much damage was done to the Temple, but slowly it begins to collapse and nearly half the temple has fallen down.
The female voice returns very excited. You just witnessed the first attack on the Jedi Temple in over a thousand years. Even during the wars against the Sith the Jedi Temple here on Courascant has not been attacked. Truly we are witnessing the return of the Sith.
In the Happies Cluster a Sith Lord starts to rethink his planed invasion. In orbit of the planet Aldery a master and his appetence try to contact what is left of the Council. ON Courascant a Politician smiles at a step in the right direction. And in hyperspace bound for Merker a commander wonders if he will ever be able to sleep at night with out thing about the men he ordered to there death.
