It was an era of peace. The Republic was in its full glory, having gone through a recent period of renassaince and reform. The Jedi were still the peacekeepers of the galaxy, though the relative calmness of said galaxy allowed many of them to pursue more intellectual and spiritual pursuits, rather than worrying about the material. However, all was not perfect. For of late, the Jedi Council had become somewhat withdrawn. It was as if they had foreknowledge of a storm that was brewing; a storm that spelled trouble for them all.
Heedless of this tension beneath the tranquility, the Andromeda glided into orbit around Coruscant. After the standard security check in, she docked at one of the Republic's many public facilities.
So, as the crew of the Andromeda went out for a little down time (after being given extensive dossiers on the inhabitants and customs of the SWU), Tanith went in search of the Jedi Council. With her went Yeoman and her two bodyguards (Jaffa and Mg).
It didn't take them long to find the place where the Jedi Council met. Surprisingly, they didn't have to wait long before they were admitted into the room. Looking around, she saw that all of the Coucil-member had very somber appearances. Perhaps that was just how they were...
Tanith: Um, hi. My name is Tanith, and I represent a multi-dimensional company--
Mace Windu: Who are your companions?
Tanith: *slightly puzzled* These are my guardians, Jaffa and Mg. And Yeoman here is my secretary.
Mace Windu: *to Yeoman* What is your business here, Sith.
Yeoman: Me? Sith? Wha?
Yoda: Strong in the Force he is not. But likeness to the visions he bears.
Tanith: Er... excuse me? Yeoman has no Force powers, and he's definitely not of the Dark Side.
Mace Windu: Nevertheless, he bears strong resemblance to the darkness we have foreseen. To ensure that he will not cause the destruction to come, we will need to take him into custody.
Tanith: What?! Wait a minute. Yeoman works for me, and is under my protection. And I'm certainly *not* going to let him be arrested for something he's never done, and is not likely to do in the future as well!
Yoda: Truth you speak. Yet precaution we must take.
Yeoman: Look, I'm sure this is just a misunderstanding. There are an infinite number of universes out there. Maybe you're talking about one of my alternate universe doubles?
Mace Windu: And just why should be believe your word? The time we had forseen for the beginnings of chaos is almost upon us. And here you come at nearly the same time...
Tanith: Then we'll *find* this "darkness" you're talking about. And prove Yeoman here is innocent!
Yoda: Feasible is your plan. But unsupervised will you not go. Two with you will be sent.
Mace Windu: I am willing to agree with that.
Tanith: I agree too. Who are you sending for your "supervisors"?
Yoda: *contemplates* Completed his entry to knighhood young Obi-Wan has. With him his mentor will go.
Tanith: Um... could you repeat that?
Mace Windu: Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi will accompany you. A Jedi Master and a Jedi Knight. If the pattern of Sith lords remain the same, the numbers would be even.
Tanith: Right. Okay. Whatever. Then let's get started. *starts to leave, stops, turns around* Oh, and bye the way. If we're proven right in this, I'm expecting compensations in our dealings, later on. *turns and leaves*
Meanwhile, in another part of the Republic....
On a far away planet, a young man appeared from nowhere. He bore the same features as the Yeoman that had just left the Jedi Council. Incidentally, he was also the Chaos Bringer of the Jedi Council's foreseeings.
The young man surveyed his surroundings from his vantage point and chuckled to himself. This was going to be FUN.

CB Yeoman: Hmm... Jedi Temple or Senate chambers. So much to do so little time. Rogue Jedi, or political chaos... Well, let's let fate decide.
*Pulls out a coin and flips it.*
CBYeoman: MMM.... Temple it is.
*CBYeoman heads off to the Jedi temple.*

Mg looks around at the now deserted courtyard.
A man looking exactly like Yeoman, but dressed idfferently approaches him:
CBYeoman: Hello. Might I ask if this is the Jedi Temple?
Mg: How did you change your cloth... Right, the other Yeoman that's supposed to be around.
CBYeoman: Other Yeoman? Really? Intresting. Very intresting indeed. I assume from the battle armor that your all prepared fot the fight scene? The fight to the death with the villain. All that. Well, before that, would you tell me one thing?
CBYeoman: What do you want?
Written by Tanith 05-25-2002 03:32 PM
Somewhere near the Jedi Temple on Coruscant...
As Mg and CBYeoman squared off, they were suddenly distracted by a loud cry from somewhere nearby.
Voice: WHERE IN THE SPACE TIME CONTINUUM ARE WE NOW!?!?!?!!
This voice was immediately followed by a series of crashing sounds, that slowly became fainter as the source of the sound headed away from their positions. Soon, the sound cut off completely, as if whoever was causing it had run out of stuff to smash.
Shrugging off the odd incident as something of no importance, Mg and CBYeoman faced off again.

Meanwhile, as CBYeoman was collecting his coterie, the rest of the crewmembers who had not gone to the Jedi Temple returned on board the Andromeda.
Most of them, especially the girls, were all enjoying a moment of rest in the Pokemon Holo-Habitat room. There, as Tanith's more combat-oriented pokemon practiced their attacks, the rest were fed tidbits by the three girls there: Serra, Kasumi, and Rune.
Joye: Iggly! Iggly! *bounce* *bounce* *CRASH*
Rune snickered as her Igglybuff bounced into the feet of her Pontya, who had been chasing after Tanith's Stantler in a play-race. The collision sent the two stumbling off into a nearby holo-strawman, which Tachi the Scizor had been sparring against. She ran forward to make sure they were unhurt, and helped them to disentangle from each other.
Lyta, the Ponyta, returned to her feet with an air of injured pride. When she thought Rune wasn't looking, she aimed a soft kick at Joye the Igglybuff. Unfortunately, the pink balloon pokemon had already bounced off again, this time, with Lyta at her heels.
Meanwhile, Serra smiled in amusement at the pokemons' antics. Seeing that Lyta was having problems jumping high enough to reach the ricochetting Igglybuff, she decided to... "help out". With a small surge of Mana, Serra cast a "Wings of Aesthir" spell on Lyta, giving her the powers of flight, as well as a small boost in attack strength.
Lyta neighed in surprise as two shimmering wings appeared on her back, and she took off into the air by instinct. What followed was a series of near misses with the walls and other obstructions, as she tried to get used to her wings. Then, with shaky legs, she finally landed again.
Rune: WOW!! That was soooooo neat! Let's go show the others, Lyta! ^_^
And with that, Rune hopped onto Lyta's back and raced out into the corridors past a just entering Rommie, who just sighed at her antics.
Rommie: *rhetorically* I don't suppose it will be any use to remind her that there is no running in the corridors, is there.
Meta: I suppose not. But I better go check on her, just in case.
As Meta left the room, followed by a bouncing Igglybuff, Silverfox looked up from his conversation with Kasumi.
Silverfox: Say, is Firesong *still* studying that large magic fountain from Lady Serra's home realms?
Rommie: He is.
Silverfox: Sigh. How am I ever to drag him away from that cursed contraption. *sly smile* Lady Serra... perhaps you have some suggestions?
Serra: Well, I could give you another artifact to show him. Mayhap that will lure him to you.
Silverfox: True... but his attentions would still be on the contraption, and not on me. *mock dramatic pose*
Serra: *eg* You could always ask Kasumi to speak with him. Or even worse, Rune.
Silverfox: *cough* Heh. I don't think Firesong deserves to have that much cuteness blackmailed against him yet. *eg* But it's a thought. Speaking of which, have you found something interesting, Kas-chan?
He spoke to Kasumi, who had been deeply engrossed with Leilani the Bellosum.
Kasumi: Hmm? Oh. I was just cataloguing the different types of pollen and saps that Leilani-chan here could make right now. It's so interesting how many different types of them Tanith has taught her aside from the common grass pokemon spores.
Silverfox: Cataloguing? What for?
Kasumi: So I can see what other similar pollen types could be added to her list. There were so many interesting ones I've read in my studies.
Silverfox: You herbal studies, yes? Hm... I should read some of those texts too. There're entire worlds of new and exotic plant-life out there for me to familiarize myself with. And that's just the herbal side of being a kestra'chern.
Serra: *teasingly* Sounds like you're going to be as busy as your Firesong.
Silverfox: *mock dramatically* Ai me! It seems the infection has spread!
Kasumi: Infection? Oh my... I don't understand.
Silverfox: It's alright, milady. We were just teasing.
Before anyone could speak further a loud *BOOM* reverberated through the ship. The pokemon and the people froze in place, and all turned to Rommie for an explanation.
Rommie: *sigh* It seems that Mr. Scott's and Mr. MacGyvers' ....endeavours... have met slight difficulties. No one was hurt. But now, I will need to go oversee clean up. If you'll all excuse me.
And with that, Rommmie stood and left, leaving a small group of amused people shaking their heads at the latest experiments of the engineers.
Written by Tanith 05-28-2002 12:09 PM
While the girls (and Meta) had been hanging out with the pokemon, the men (and biochemist) had been busy at work in one of the engineering workshops.
In the middle of the room, surrounded by metal parts, was an half-assembled, or perhaps half-disassembled, droid. Puzzling over it were Scotty and MacGyver, who were arguing a bit about what to do next. Hank McCoy perched on a nearby chair, watching their efforts bemusedly.
Scotty: I'm tellin' ye, lad, that we need a positronic network for the head!
Mac: And I say that we don't need one for an AI. Rommie certainly doesn't.
Scotty: Ach. But her technology is lightyears beyond the nuts and bolts of this... this... droid ye got back from this planet we're on.
Hank: Ahem. Not to intrude... but why not try it both ways, and see which works? *muttering under breath* ...if at all...
Having nothing better to do, the two tried the non-postronic head that Mac had prepared. When they stood back, there was no response from the half-built droid.
Scotty: Well, that dinna work, did it?
Before Mac could reply, Rune rushed into the room astride Lyta the (newly winged) Ponyta. Meta walked in at their heels, followed by the bouncing pink Joye.
Rune: Wheee! Look at me! Lyta-chan got wings!!
Hank: *examining wings closely* Curious. Most curious. Lady Serra's work, I presume?
Meta: Yes. A "Wings of Aesthir" spell, I believe she called it.
Rune: Watcha doin' here? ^_^
Scotty: Adult stuff, lass. We're makin' our own droid.
Meta: Um... but don't we have working droids on board already?
Mac: Of course. But building one on our own is an entirely different thing.
Meta: Er. Okay. If you say so.
Rune: A droid? Cool! Does it work yet?
Mac: Ahem. No, not yet.
Scotty: As I keep tellin' ye, lad. We're gonna need them positronic nets--
Rune: Lemme help! *casts animate spell*
A soft glow flowed from Rune's gesturing hands onto the droid, and sank into it before anyone could protest. All of a suddenly, the droid jerked into motion as if a puppet on strings. Then it started to dance in place.
The two engineers stared at the dancing droid, then looked back in mild sufferance at the giggling Rune. Hank chuckled under his breath at the expressions on their faces.
Meanwhile, the droid started dancing faster... and faster... and faster... Soon, a small stream of smoke began to come out of its seams, and sparks began to fly.
Alarmed, Scotty and Mac jumped back, as Meta grabbed Rune from Lyta's back, and Hank grabbed the bouncing Igglybuff. They were just in time...
Coughing, the group exitted the room, followed by a trail of smoke. As they stared at the ruined workshop, Rommie walked up to them in the corridor.
She took in the soot covered, and slightly chagrined faces of Mac and Scotty, the giggling squeals of Rune, and the smoke from the room.... and sighed deeply, shaking her head in exasperation.
Sometimes, it seems like even AI's could get headaches.

Yeoman: I can't believe the Jedi could be so close minded! I don't even have the Force! Maybe we should find some other dimension to trade with.
Tanith: Well, at least they didn't draw lightsabers on you, and they were willing to give us the benefit of the doubt... That's always a good thing.
Jaffa: Hey look. *points*
As the other two looked up, the say two very familiar people approaching them, dressed in Jedi garb.
Tanith: *bowing* Master Jinn and Jedi Kenobi, I believe?
Qui-Gon: *bowing* Indeed, madame. I believe we are to accompany you to find *looks at Yeoman* ....ah... a certain Sith Lord?
Yeoman: *muttering* It's. Not. Me.
Tanith: Ahem. Right.
Just then, Mg_knt finally ran up to the group, having changed out of his combat armor.
Mg: Hey, I just saw Yeoman's double!
Yeoman: Ha! Told ya!
After a flurry of confused explanations, the two Jedi, at least, were satisfied that the Yeoman they would be traveling with was not a Sith. After that, Tanith led them all on board the Andromeda and prepared to takeoff.
On the bridge...
Tanith: Rune, could you---why do you have all that soot on your face?
Rune: Um... a dancing robot? *takes out towel and wipes face*
Tanith: *sigh* I don't wanna know. Ahem. Can you look ahead to see where the evil-Yeoman Mg described is going to be?
Obi-Wan: She can look into the future? I don't think it will do much good, if it took the Force expertise of entire Jedi Council to see into the future now.
Yeoman: Well, duh. She's not using the Force. So there's no reason the Dark Side should affect her.
Qui-Gon: Let us just see how she does.
Rune: Hm.... it's.... kinda fuzzy.... but I see this um.... desert place and a... colliseum? Um... he's with these guys...
Tanith: *softly* Can you see who they are?
Rune: Er... there's this big purple guy who looks like he's drunk...
Jaffa: Uh-oh. That had better not be who I think it is...
Mg: What are you talking about?
Jaffa: *cough* er... nevermind.
Tanith: Shush! Rune..?
Rune: Um... there's these three guys in red... and this little robot guy...
Yeoman: Trio in red.... that sounds familiar. But I can't remember...
Rune: And this other guy in a cloak, who's got read and black paint all over his face.... He looks like one of them demon-guys we saw on that Hannibal Lector movie poster...
Tanith: Movie.... *gasp* .... Darth Maul....
Obi Wan: Darth? As in Sith? Could that be his apprentice?
Rune: And the last one's a guy with a bokken.
Tanith: Bokken... hm... does he have red hair and a scar on the face?
Rune: Um no... black hair and he looks like he's from high school.
Tanith: *sighs in relief* Not Kenshin, then. That's a relief. Hm... can you figure out what planet they're on?
Rune: I'll try... um... Geono? Genesis? um....
Rune: Yeah! That!
Jaffa: It figures.
Tanith: Well, then. We know where our next stop is. Rommie, bring up the star charts. We're headed toward Geonosis.
Majestically, the Andromeda Ascendant rose from the docking rings of Coruscant and glided out of the atmosphere. Once she had gained sufficient distance from the planet, she entered into FTL drive, headed for the planet... Geonosis.

On the bridge, Rommie grimly distributed a scanner readout of the activity on the planet to everyone.
Tanith bit her lip as she considered the data. This... was going to take a lot of planning.
Written by Tanith 05-29-2002 10:48 AM
In the hangar bay, Kuno was ordering around the Geonosians -- rather unnecessarily, since he had no clue how starships worked. But, of course, Kuno was oblivious to his own idiocy, as well as the grumblings of his underlings.
Several Geonosians looked up at the strange sound. They say a small green and white ball roll into the room. With a white flash, a green girl-like plant creature appeared.
Not waiting for a response from the gathered aliens, Leilani the Bellosum launched right into an attack, shooting out a cloud of exotic pollen and plant spores that covered the room. Immediately, all the Geonosians in the room began to keel over from her attack. Only Kuno, who had a certain amount of immunity to toxic plant products through living with his sister (the Black Rose, Kodachi), remained more or less unharmed.
Still, it took a while before all the unconscious Geonosians to register on his brain. And even a bit longer for him to comprehend that they had not just fallen asleep at the job. Pulling out his bokken, he turned to scan the room, looking for the enemy that did this.
He was surprised, then, when he saw a cute young girl smiling at him from the door to the room.
Rune: Hi!! ^_^
As all anime characters faced with overwhelming cuteness, Kuno could do no more than to wave back a greeting. His pause was long enough for Rune to open up a rift underneath him.
Kuno: WAAAAAAaaaaaahhhhhh!!!! *THUMP*
As luck, or perhaps design, had it, the rift Rune opened to the Ranmaverse was directly over the Tendo household. And unfortunately for Kuno, he crashed through the roof and landed in the bedroom of one Akane Tendo, just as said young girl had returned to her room from an exasperating dinner with her fiancee.
Needless to say, she did not find his prescence welcome.
Akane: KUNO NO HENTAAIII!!!!!
Never let it be said that Akane was lacking in strength. Even with her mallet confiscated, she still easily sent the unconscious Kuno sailing into LEO, before finally landing in his own house.... right in the middle of Kodachi's alligator pond.

As Rune turned to leave the hanger bay room, she found herself suddenly surrounded by three men dressed in red with blasters hanging from their belts.
Inquisitors: (in unison) NO ONE EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!!!....
And so on, they launched into their standardard speech (with the added bit about blasters included). It wasn't until they got to the part with the "comfy chair", however, before they realized that their victim hadn't been complaining or protesting at all.
Rather, Rune just had a (cute) puzzled look on her face.
Inquisitor: Well, aren't you going to beg for mercy?
Rune: Huh? ^_^!
Although the Inquistors had not realized it yet, their powers of Parody had been defeated by the most obvious (though not always the most applicable) of tactics: Ignorance.
After all, Parody only has power if one knows what it is parodying; ie. what the heck they're talking about. Rune, having never seen the Inquisition sketch before, and having gotten to the period of western history the real Inquisition was in her studies yet, had no concept of what the red robed guys were spouting. She didn't get the joke, and thus remained unaffected by them.
As the three Inquisitors tried in vain to explain themselves to a politely puzzled Rune, they suddenly realized that they were surrounded by a hazy fog of pollen. By then, it was too late, as they began to yawn helplessly, before falling asleep.
With a (still puzzled) shrug, Rune rifted the comatose trio into the brig of the Andromeda, where they would be kept sedated until they could be returned to their native universe.
She then returned Leilani into her pokeball and exited the room, where Meta was waiting for her. Various KO'ed bodies of more Genonosian guards and henchmen were scattered around him, testifying to his contributions to the conflict.
With their part done, Rune opened a rift up to the Andromeda, and walked in, followed by Meta.
The rest were up to the others to handle.
Written by Tanith 05-29-2002 11:41 AM
As Rune and Meta took care of the other idiots in the factories, Maul was still getting the droid factory up and running. Just as he pressed the last lever, however, he noticed a shimmer on a nearby panel.
Looking up, he found himself staring at a blocky... thing... that looked like a crystal duck. (see attached picture) Before Maul could grab it, the porygon pokemon shimmered again, and seemed to disappear into the panel it had appeared on.
Suddenly, with a annoying SCREEECH... the droid-making machinery in the room came to a complete halt. Maul immediately ordered the Geonosians to start figuring out what went wrong, even though he had a feeling that they would never be able to fix it.
Suddenly, he stiffened. His force senses told him that there were JEDI (!) behind him. With a blur of motion, he whipped out his double lightsaber staff and whirled around -- and found himself face to face with Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi. In the background, he could hear the Geonosians beset upon by strange animal-like creatures (pokemon). But they weren't important. The JEDI (!) were.
And thus, the final fight scene of "The Phantom Menace" was replayed once more in the factories of Geonosis. Of course, this time, the background machinery, operated by Porygon, was actively on the side of the good guys. Likewise, both Obi Wan and Qui Gon were a bit more experienced at things than the canon duo that had faced the canon Maul in the canon universe.
However, in the interests of suspense, we will now leave this scene to look at how our other heroes and villains are doing.
Written by Tanith 05-29-2002 04:30 PM
Outside in the Arena (the only place where Galactus would fit), CBYeoman had just finished his muffin when he heard a loud SCREEEECH from the factories. Worried about what the noise may portend, CBYeoman hurried in that direction.
As soon as he entered the factories, though, he was ambushed by Mg in his high tech armor. CBYeoman barely escaped the first volley via his Force powers. And again, their battle raged on, with CBYeoman decidedly on the defensive.
Gir, of course, could have helped its master out. Unfortunately, it seemed to have somehow wound up totally wrapped up in webbing early in the fight, as would not be getting out anytime soon.
CBYeoman: Look, bud. I'm sure there's something I can trade you to switch sides. I mean, look, I have the power to grant anyone their deepest desires! You gotta want that!
Mg_knt: Hhn. What I want, you have no way of giving me. *zap*zap*zap*
CBYeoman: *dodge*dodge* Oookay... maybe. *mutters under breath* But I bet I can make you go after it...
Slowly, Mg pressed the attack and forced CBYeoman back in the direction of the Arena.
As CBYeoman left the Arena with Gir in the first place, there was a *pop* as Tanith, Jaffa, and Yeoman translocated next to the unconscious Galactus.
Looking around to make sure no one was looking their way (and as luck would have it, no one did), Yeoman pulled a phial of water from his dimensional pocket. He uncorked it and flung the liquid at Galactus.
As the waters of Jusenkyo (which it was) hit the sleeping Galactus, a shimmer surrounded the gigantic being, which then shrunk in size until it faded away, leaving behind an ordinary sized... chihuahua?
The change had awoken the drunken Galactus-chihuahua, who staggered to its feet and stumbled around.
Galactus-Chihuahua: Quiero tequila... *hic* *slump*
Tanith: *into communicator* Is Rune up yet? *listening* Good. Rune, focus on the chihuahua and rift it back to that place we told you about earlier.
And so, Galactus-Chihuahua was rifted back into the palace of Eternity (in his home universe), to face the music yet again when he awoke.
Meanwhile, the shrinkage of such a enormous creature as Galactus most obviously caught the attentions of the various Genonosians around the Arena. As such, Jaffa, Yeoman, and Tanith found their hands full holding off the attack. Of course, things became easier when Tanith summoned a glob of cold water to appear above Yeoman's head...
Just as they dispatched the last Geonosian flunky, CBYeoman stumbled out onto the Arena also, desperately dodging the repulser blasts Mg was shooting at him.
Unfortunately for CBYeoman (or perhaps, unluckily), the closest person to him was his good double, Yeoman. Immediately upon seeing his evil double, Yeoman pulled out another flask of Jusenkyo water and threw it at him.
CBY-Panda: Growf. *blink*
Mg was about to finish CBY-Panda off when something small and robotic suddenly crashed into his legs from behind. He nearly fell on top of CBY-Panda, who redirected his fall onto Yeoman via the Force. The two of them went down in a tangle of limbs.
CBY-Panda growled a "thanks" to Gir, before he found himself suddenly stuck with a strand of webbing as Mg got to his feet once more. At the same time, Tanith hit CBY-Panda with a banishment charm she had picked up in Khazan.
Desperate to escape, CBY-Panda unleashed his "Get-what-you-desire-the-most" spell on Mg. Mg stiffen in place, his eyes glazing over. This allowed CBYeoman to escape by teleporting out with Gir
As he left, Tanith ran up to the still form of Mg.
Tanith: *concerned* You alright? What happened?
Mg blinked and stared at Tanith. His armor disappeared as he un-summoned it. Suddenly, without warning, Mg grabbed her by the waist and pulled her close to him.
Tanith: *nervously* Err.... Mg? Um... what are you doing?

The soon re-appeared over a hot spring. As they hit CBYeoman returned to his human form. He left the spring, wearing only the remains of his suit (it having been destroyed by his transformation), with Gir trailing behind him.
CBY: Well... That went badly.
Gir: Can we watch TV now?
CBY: In a little bit Gir. First I need to find a new suit and we need to find a new base of operations. I don't think the Geonosains are going to be to hospitable in the near future.
CBY: Now whre are we? I don't think I know of that many hot springs.
*CBY truns around to come face to face with a dark skinned, red haired woman, who looks rather angry*
CBY: *Dryly* Oh. Arliman. Of course.

The soft winds caressed the treetops amidst the spring sunlight. Birds darted to and fro with their joyous songs. The clear waters of the lake rippled in the light, shining like a pool of diamonds...
Wrong scene. (oops)
The sands of Geonosis whipped around the Arena, as Tanith stared at Mg in shock. To say that she was surprised was the understantement of the century.
The scene seem to crystallize, as if frozen in time...
Tanith: Uh... I... ah... Are you sure you're... in your right mind?
Mg: *eyes slightly glazed* Oh yes. I have been sure for a long time.
Tanith: Um.... I.... DUCK!
The two of them ducked just as a pair of blaster bolts sailed over where their heads used to be. It seemed that the Geonosian reinforcements had arrived.
While Jaffa and Yeoman met the attack head-on, Tanith tried to pull her hand loose to help out. Unfortunately, Mg seemed not to notice the attack at all, and kept his hold on her hand.
Tanith: *worried* Uh... Mg, are you sure you're all right?
Mg: Never better. Your answer?
Tanith: *ducks another blast* No you're not. Something's wrong with you. *ducks again* Sorry about this; we'll talk about this later.
With that, she used the mental aspects of her sorcery to put his mind to sleep, then immediately called the Andromeda to beam everyone back up.
Later, on the Andromeda....
Mg sat up on the biobed as Serra finished examining him, making sure CBYeoman's spell on him was entirely broken. With a nod at him, she moved on to examine the two Jedi, both of whom had sustained injuries in their deathmatch with Darth Maul.
As she left, Tanith walked forward from her position by the door. She beckoned to Mg and led him to a private alcove in the Infirmary. She was a bit nervous, but so was Mg.
Tanith: Ah. Ahem. About your.... proposal down there....
Mg: Er.... yeah?
Tanith: Did you really mean it? Or was it just because of CBYeoman's spell?
Written by Mg_knt 05-30-2002 05:38 PM
Mg: Actually kinda both I guess....
*Mg looks a little apprehensive expecting a mallet to come from somewhere.*
Mg: I uhh do have a crush on you and I think your a really beautiful person both physically and personality wise. I am really sorry if I offended or embarrassed you down there on the surface.
Written by Tanith 05-30-2002 05:47 PM
Tanith blushed, unsure if she was relieved or dissappointed. Perhaps she should just label the emotion 'flattered'.
Tanith: That's... that's very sweet of you, Mg. I'm not offended, really.
Mg: So you're not going to mallet me?
Tanith: *giggle* Of course not. The curse was hardly your fault. And... um... well... even you had been serious....
Tanith: Well, I like you well enough, Mg. But I'm don't feel I'm ready for something like... like marriage.
Mg: *cough* Okay.
Tanith: Sorry, Mg. ....Maybe I'd reconsider the issue in a few years or so.

CBY: Okay, Gir this will be the beginning of our new base of operations. We need only find a few items to bring it up to full power.

As Tanith left the alcove that she had been speaking to Mg in, she walked up to the two biobeds where her two Jedi guests were.
Despite the fact that they were more experienced than they had been in the canon version, both of them had sustained injuries in the fight against Darth Maul, who had been amped in the Dark Side by CBYeoman.
Qui-Gon had suffered less, only a gash on one arm. Obi Wan fared a bit worse, and was opening admiring his newly regenerated hand, courtesy of Rommie's Culture level nanites.
Tanith: Ahem. I trust that both of you have recovered?
Qui-Gon: Oh yes. We are quite fine now.
Tanith: *smirk* And I also suppose that this would be a bad time to say "I told you so".
Qui-Gon: Well, I do admit you were right on all accounts. The Sith was more dangerous than we had expected... and your friend Yeoman was not the Sith Lord we had expected.
Obi-Wan: Should the Council be concerned of his return?
Tanith: He won't be coming back -- not to this universe, anyway. The banishment charm I hit him with should keep him out.
Qui-Gon: That is certainly excellent news. Are we on our way back to Coruscant now, by any chance?
Tanith: We are... and we should be arriving any moment now.
Much Later, In the Jedi Temple on Coruscant...
Tanith: .....it's settled then? PaDT will send you older than average students to learn the ways of the Force, who will have the option of remaining as Jedi Knights here or returning to their homeworld. In return, we will also provide you and the Republic with the services and technologies listed here. *gestures to datapad* Plus emergency aid, when and where applicable.
Yoda: Equitable your trade is. Consent the Jedi Council gives.
Mace Windu: Yes. Also, Master Jinn and Jedi Knight Kenobi shall be the Jedi representatives in this transaction.
Tanith: Fair enough. *smiles* It was good doing business with you.
A day later, on Khazan...
The two Jedi stood with Tanith before a portal that connected the PaDT offices on Khazan to its main headquarters on Earth Prime. In the time before leaving the SWU, they had hashed out a tentative arrangement.
Obi-Wan would head to Earth Prime and help the PaDT (Planar and Dimensional Travels, Inc.) and EP government liasons to track down Force-capable supers and inform them of the "study abroad" opportunity co-sponsored by PaDT and the EPIS (Earth Prime Immigration Services).
Meanwhile, Qui-Gon would stay aboard the Andromeda as liason there, to keep closer relations with one of the co-owners and co-founders of PaDT.
And so, the way to the SWU was officially opened.

Mg: Well first we could get Gordon Freeman as a physicist.
Tanith: Well what are his qualifications.
Mg: Degree from MIT. Major in Quantum Physics and a minor in Nuclear Physics.
Tanith: and what could we offer Mr. Freeman?
Mg:Well he would really like to get away from Xen and the Black Mesa facility. The scientists there accidently opened a portal to Xen and well all hell has broken loose and a goverment clean up crew was sent in. They are killing everyone be it alien or human.
Tanith: So what makes Freeman so special?
Mg:He is a survivor. He has lasted 24 hours in hell basically. He has fought both the aliens and the clean up crew.

The creature known as Pennywise loomed over the children, it's cheerful clown form a sharp contrast with its malevolent smile. It was weakened by the belief powered attack of the battery acid and the silver, but it still had enough strength to dispatch them. Then suddenly it felt a presence behind him.
It swung around to see a man in his late twenties with a smirk on his face that the ancient creature never had seen directed at it. The expression of someone who had his opponent exactly where he wanted it.
Watcher: Hey, just stopped by to do this.
The figure kicked Pennywise square in the nads. The age-old, elderitch creature collapsed on the ground, feeling intense pain like nothing It ever felt before.
Watcher: One of the most widespread and strongest beliefs around is that any male in existence can be brought down by a kick to the balls. Since you're vulnerable to attacks backed by strongly held belief, it must be particularly agonizing for you. Let me demonstrate again for you.
The man kicked the prone Pennywise again, causing a scream of high pitched pain. The children meanwhile began to laugh at their former tormentor now curled in a fetal position.
Pennywise: You'll float in my deadlights!
Watcher: I don't think so. I through playing with you.
Then suddenly a hole opened up underneath the agonized entity, and It fell a long distance until it landed on a field. Men with big hair flew from all directions to check out the new arrival.
Watcher: I'm sure Pennwise and the Saiyans will get along splendidly. Now kids, let's go get some ice cream.

The Andromeda floated in orbit around Khazan. Tanith and Mg stood in front of a portal in the local PaDT HQ, which connected it to its counterpart on Earth 2.0.
Mg: I thought we were going to pick up Gordon Freeman?
Tanith: We are. But I received a message from headquarters. There's been several applications for work on the Andromeda, and I finally approved one of them.
Tanith: You'll see. He'll be working as entertainer on board.
As she spoke, a person emerged from the portal. He looked a bit like Nobody, except a bit younger and more... animeish. He wore fantasy-adventure type robes, and had a gittern slung across his back.
N-Chan: Reportin' for duty, milady.
Tanith: Glad to have you with us, N-Chan.
After exchanging pleasantries, the trio transported back to the Andromeda. There, Tanith gave him a short tour of the ship. They stopped by one of the engineering workrooms (again), attracted by the noises within.
Tanith: *peering in* What the heck?
Rune: They're makin' the bestest AI droid! ...But they won't lemme help. *pouts*
Scotty: This isn't really your thing, lass.
Mac: And.... done. *checks scanner readouts* Ha! We did it!
N-Chan: *pokes droid* Uh... it doesn't seem to be doing anything.
Scotty: Well o' course laddie. We haven't programmed it yet.
Rune: Oo! Oo! I know! Let Bit do it!
Mac: Er... let's leave the pokemon out of this.
Rune: *pouts* Then can I try one of the new spells I just learned for homework?
N-Chan: You learn spells for homework?
Tanith: She is still an apprentice to Pug of Midkemia. Technically, anyway.
Rune: Pleeeaaaaase?? *uber-cute look*
Scotty: *sputters* Err... um... okay. *defeated look*
Mac: *shudders* Of course, little one. *smiles weakly*
Rune: Yay!! *rifts a large tome to her hands* Let's see... here it is.
And so, Rune began to read from the magic tome, her brows furrowing as she struggled with the unfamiliar spell. (No one noticed, of course, that she accidentally mispronounced a syllable or two, but they would realize that soon enough.)
A glow formed around the newly completed android, obscured it, and suddenly dissapated as Rune finished casting. To everyone's surprise, what was left was a seemingly human figure (rather familiar to some), who opened his eyes and looked around confusedly.
Tanith: That's... not supposed to happen, is it?
N-Chan: Whoa. It's that dude from Quantum Leap!
Sam Beckett: Wha... where am I? *looks at N-Chan* How do you know about Quantum Leap?
Scotty: *looking at scanner* That's strange. The sensors read him as both human and droid.
Sam Beckett: What are you talking about? Droid?
Rune: *looks down at book, then at Sam* Oops.
Tanith: *sigh* Why do I feel a headache coming on...

The Andromeda glided along in orbit around Half Life Earth. Due to the higher technological levels of the planet below, she remained under stealth mode.
On the bridge...
Rune: Um... nope. I don't see that guy anywhere.
Jaffa: He must have already gone to Xen.
Tanith: Perhaps. Can you find the dimensional portal?
Rune: Looking... found it! He's in a glowy pool on the other side. Um.. uh-oh. A buncha monsters are headed for the portal.
Mg: Doesn't matter; they're going to nuke the facility anyways.
Rommie: There a few human lifesigns in the building that has not been contaminated by the non-terrestrial biology.
Rune: We can't let them die! Can you 'port them out, Rommie?
Mg: If they're faciliity researchers or security guards, they'd be killed by the marines.
Tanith: *sigh* Rommie... beam them into a holding area. Keep the security and scientists and beam the others back down. We'll drop them off on Khazan, and let them start their lives again there.
Rommie: As you wish.
Tanith: Rune, have you gotten a lock on where Mr. Freeman is?
Tanith: Good, then close the rift in that facility. We might as well make sure this nightmare of theirs is taken care of. We'll head for Xen next.
Jaffa: Uh... you sure I can't make a quick trip down there to get one of those lasers of theirs?

Gordon Freeman gritted his teeth as he fired away at the egg sac of the giant Gonarch before him. He had succeeded in avoiding the toxic globs the thing kept shooting at him, though their fumes were making him slightly dizzy. Unfortunately, he had not been able to avoid all of the baby headcrabs, and a few were clinging to his suit.
Suddenly, the world around him shimmered, and seemed to tilt. When his recovered from the disorientation, he found himself in a small room of obviously high techology. A small floating robotic droid floated before him.
With a quick array of energy beams, the little droid destroyed the baby headcrabs that had been clinging to him. Then let loose a wide-angle scanner-beam of some sort on Gordon. Gordon waited patiently for it to finish. He wasn't sure of anything right now, but he had to admit a small amount of relief at the interruption of his suicide run.
Suddenly, there was a hissing in the room, as the walls shimmered. This confirmed his suspicion that the room had been pressurized and force-field quarantined.
With a swish, the door opened. A petite young woman of Asian descent entered the room, followed by a taller man.
Tanith: Hello, Mr. Freeman. How would you like a more positive alternative than your current path of suicidal xenocide? I have a business proposition for you...

Security Head: No. But we speculate that she has been forming a relationship with someone outside. Since we have no policy against romance and such, we didn't pay much attention to it.

(Not that I think you all could have gotten onto the Andromeda, but since you all seem to think so...)
Internal sensors of the Andromeda immediately detected and identified the intruders that had just teleported on board.
With an digital sigh, the AI of the Andromeda locked onto each of their life signs and beamed them down to the pre-fight prep rooms inside the Kazan Arena. She then raised all of the extra shielding that had not been put up before. It seemed that standard modes weren't secure enough.
Upon consideration of MunchKING's special case, the Andromeda also put up a special teleport block locked onto his teleportation signature alone. That should keep him from cracking the transmission codes to sneak on board.
Satisfied that the new security was working sufficiently, the Andromeda sent a notice to Tanith, who was just making the last preparations before leaving the Khazan reality.
Moments later, the Andromeda disappeared into the slipstream, headed toward it's next destination.
