As the boarding party appeared on the Andromeda, they found themselves seemingly plopped down into the middle of the fight scene between Obi Wan and Darth Maul in SWI.
That is, a large, cavernous room crisscrossed by thin metal railings, and a deep chasm reaching down into the darkness. The pillar in the center of the room, presumably the slipstream drive, was covered by a shiny metallic substance. The substance still seemed to move, as if it had just engulfed the pillar.
Indeed, with what little time and foresight Rune could give to the Andromeda, the AI had made sure that the proper pre-set protocols were triggered, thus ensuring that the most vital systems of the ship would be protected, and still remain usable.
Immediately upon arriving, the bulk of the invading forces began spreading out into the ship firing on every living being they saw. After a few unsuccessful attempts at breaching the substance-covered pillar in the center of the room, CBYeoman and Z-woman joined them.
At the same time, Yeoman-Zel and Mgknt were approaching the enemy forces as well. On the bridge Rune kept an eye on their progress, while interfacing with the pilot VR. While she was not a skilled pilot, her prescience helped the Andromeda AI to easily evade enemy blasts, while doing the most they could to keep the heat off some of their less capable allies. Meta also kept an eye on the monitor showing the progress of their enemies on board. He had the feeling that, sooner or later, he would see action as well.

"I assume your not the chimera? No, too much of a coincidence. We never properly met during the Geonosis incident."
Yeoman-Zel gave him a derisive snort, "Whatever spanky, how about you just leave and I won't shove my lightsaber through certain vital organs? I'd hate to think some version as me could be a big enough jerk to join up with The Overlord."
The Chaos Bringer laughed, "Such heroic nonsense!"
With that, both brought forth their lightsabers, ignited them, and begain to circle each other, looking for any weakness.

Her Pheonix abilities allowed her to simulate flight with telekinesis, so she took to the air, looking for a door out of the area. She finally found one up near the upper levels, and when it refused to open for her, she used her Sinanju abilities to rip a hole in it big enough for her to crawl through. Finding herself in the corridors of the Andromeda, she began looking around for a target. She heard the slightest bit of noise coming from around a corner, and she immediately used her Sinanju training to move along the wall, staying out of sight.
Mg_knt began approaching the door where Rommie reported one of the prisoners had escaped cautiously. Despite his powerful magic, he couldn't see her, as none of it was designed for sensing.
Z-woman took some time to admire his butt before proceeding with plans. For some reason, she didn't want to have to kill him.
On the bridge, Meta noticed Mg_knt had gone right past one of the intruders and activated a communicator. "You did notice that you just passed one of the invaders, right?"
Mg_knt whispered into his communicator "I don't see anyone around here. Could it be a glitch?"
Z-woman could tell that he was being told of her position. Not wanting to waste time in a needless fight, she took a small knife out of her belt, and threw it. Not wanting to give her real position away, she had it bounce off a pipe and head for his neck.
Not caring to stay and find out if she hit, Z-woman ran silently down a corridor, searching for a slightly more vulnerable target.
As luck would have it, she found the cafeteria. A knife sliced into the neck of one of the iron chefs. His head landed in the salad he had been preparing before lockdown.
Z-woman managed to strike a second one before the cafeteria was emptied by the teleporters.
Several warriors came to try and shut her down, but they still couldn't see her, since she was on the ceiling. She was about to drop down and decapitate Gordon Freeman with another knife, when it was knocked out of her hands by Tachi, the Scizor.
"This pokemon must have some pretty advanced chi training to spot me," Z-woman said to herself under her breath. "I'd better get rid of it."

"Speed, schmeed, shut up and fight! DAM BRASS!"
Electricity arced from Yeoman-Zel's outstretched hand as he charged the minion of evil.
The Chaos bringer waved aside the lightning, using The Force to disperse it. As his chimeric alternate came in he leaped over his swing, sumersaulting forward to land behind him. He quickly turned striking with his own lightsaber, only to have it parried.
The two stood, lightsaber's locked, and, again, The Chaos Bringer smiled, "You realize you're not the only one here who does lightning?" And with that he sent waves of blue lightning along his lightsaber, sending it into Yeoman-Zel.
Yeoman-Zel bit back the pain and broke off his attack, giving the Chaos Bringer opportunity to continue his lightsaber assualt. Now on the defensive, Yeoman-zel, parried what blows he could, the occasional strike getting through to leave painful, searing nicks on his arms and shoulders.
Risking a spell Yeoman-Zel shouted, "Diem Wind!" A stong wind came from his hand, knocking The Chaos Bringer back along the cat-walk, and forcing him to de-activate his lightsaber, lest it accidently cut off one of his own limbs.
Taking advantage of this, Yeoman-Zel sent out a barage of spells, "Fireball! Mono Volt! Freeze Arrow! Ra-Tilt!"
The Chaos Bringer was able to dodge them for the most part, coming away on slightly singed. Attempting to get the high ground he leaped to a higher catwalk, activating his lightsaber as he jumped.
With a cry of "Raywing!" Yeoman Zell followed him up, only to be knocked backwards from a blast of Force telekinesis. He controlled his flight as well as he could at that point, landing on a seperate catwalk.
Again he sent a barage of offensive spells at his opponent, this time from across the gap between catwalks. "Digger Volt! Gaav Flare!"
To avoid this The Chaos Bringer jumped, crossing the gap between them, sending a bolt of Force Lightining out as he landed.
The Chimera screamed in pain, and fell backwards. The Chaos Bringer advanced on him, "You know, I really did hope I'd get to finish you off."
"Bite me. Raywing!"
Yeoman-Zel lifted off the ground quickly, sending a kick into The Chaos Bringers face, knocking him back slightly.
He threw his lightsaber at his flying foe, and as it spun he used the force to direct it. At the last moment Yeoman-Zel ended his spell and fell back to the catwalk, the lightsaber passing just over his head.
"You'll have to do better than that!"
"Very well then."
With that The Chaos Bringer sent a third wave of force lightning towards him, which Yeoman-Zel quickly avoided. It was then he heard the buzzing behind him. Quickly realizing it was the returning lightsaber him jumped to avoid it, only to be caught hard by a blast of force telekinisis.
Winded he fell towards the bottom of the Andromeda, as the Chaos Bringer looked down at him.
"Perhaps if you survive this, we we finish it another time. For now, I have other work to do."
With that The Chaos Bringer stalked off to find other prey.

The moment the Andromeda AI sensed Yeoman-Zel's fall, internal transporters activated to displace him straight to the infirmary. A quick pre-prepared healing spell later, and he was ready to fight once more.
But first, the nearer of targets to him, according to the computer, was Z-woman, who none but computerized sources had been able to detect yet. Undaunted, he headed for her last detected position, guided by Rommie's directions in his comm.
Every once in a while, though, he cast a Van Rehl in the corridors of the ship at the AI's instructions. A hologram was then set over it to maintain its seeming invisibility.
Meanwhile, a battalion of battle droids approached Z-woman's position. They were specifically engineered for speed, enough to match hers. And their scanners were sensitive enough to detect her. With all the living people beamed out from around her, they were the only foes for her to face... for now.

"Ah, the legendary McGuyver. What have you there? Something cobbled together out of floss and a sponge maybe?"
"It'll deal with you, well enough."
"Really? What's it do? Let me guess? Absorb the force?"
"Listen, do you really think I'm dumb enough to use a quasi mystical energy field in front of an opponent holding a stange new device?"
It was then The Chaos Bringer quickly lifted his lightsaber, extending it, and sending the blade into the head of the Andromeda crew member.
"They always think I'm an idiot. Must be Gir's fault."

Z-woman took off, trying to find another viable target, but no matter where she ran, Rommie had already beamed all life in the area away. And despite her massive speed, she couldn't lose the robots.
Finally, she decided to use this to her advantage. "If they beam people out of engineering, I'll be able to at least destroy the machinery." she said to herself.
As she approached engineering, Montgomery Scott found himself teleported out of the area.
First thing she did upon getting there was to hit the control panels as hard as she could with her telekinesis. Sparks flew out of it, injuring Rommie's maneuverability.
That was when she got hit by a the first blaster. She flew forward in the air and landed on the ground. She spun around to hide behind a console as she got up. A knife hit the first battle droid in the sensor, hitting it hard enough to make it effectively blind. It stopped firing and shut itself down. The rest of the battle droids began to fill the room, locking targets on Z-woman and firing. She flipped over them and landed a foot into the sensor of the next droid, blinding that one as well.
The droids recentered their targeting, but they were soon melted down into slag as Z-woman released the Pheonix force inside of her. A little more exhausted, Z-woman managed to smash another control panel before Rommie's security began electrocuting her.
Activating her teleporter, she managed to land in Rommie's sickbay. She still had the full force of the Pheonix's fire out, and managed to fry some of the injured victims of the war being fought both down below and on countless worlds throughout the multiverse before Rommie teleported everyone out of there.
Z-woman went to where the medical supplies were, ripping the door off the closet before raiding it for something to treat her electrical burns. She took the rest of the medical supplies with her as she teleported out, too hurt to continue fighting and too tired of having no one else to kill. Anyone she got close enough to, Rommie would just teleport out anyways.
