Author’s note: Sorry for not getting this story out sooner. College took up too much of my free time. I only have finals left so I promise that I will start writing fanfictions again soon. Star wars is owned by its rightful owner, the oc’s and the story belongs to me. For this chapter I’ll be using episodes 17 and 18 of season one.
Senator Amidala And Jar Jar Binks have gone missing while investigating a possible lead of a hidden separatist laboratory producing an unknown virus that has poisoned the gungan waters. Jedi masters Obiwan Kenobi, Aayla Secura, Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker, and padawans Nicholas and Ahsoka tano are sent to Naboo to locate them and assist in finding the laboratory.
Nick: So the separatists are creating some kind of biological weapon in a secret laboratory on Naboo, is that correct?
Anakin: [nods] That is what we think.
Nick: [sighs in frustration] This is a huge breach in the rules to warfare and intergalactic law. Expect me to show no mercy to the ones who created the bio weapon.
Obiwan: A bit extreme, don’t you think?
Nick: There are many things that my clan and the jedi order disagree on in regards to justice and protecting the greater good. One of those things is punishing those who create chemical/biological weapons. We just slaughter those who are creating it, destroy all samples, production of the weapon and anything else that can be used to recreate such weapon.
Ahsoka: Basically your clan would just destroy everything in regards to such weapons?
Nick: Something like that, they don’t leave things to chance.
Rex: Smart and effective, although highly cruel.
Nick: [shrugs] Sometimes in order to do good, we gotta perform the necessary evil.
The gunships they were in soon land on the planet, the queen and her head of security waiting for them along with a gungan and the droid known as C3PO, Anakin’s friend.
Captain Typho: General Kenobi, Anakin, glad you could make it.
Anakin: Where is Senator Amidala?
Captain Typho: She went off to find the lab.
Anakin: You let her go?
C3PO: I am sorry, but Padme can be quite stubborn once she has made up her mind.
Anakin: [calms down] Good point, I know what you mean.
Nick: (Guessing he and Senator Amidala have some kind of relationship, interesting).
Captain Typho: This is Peppi Bow, she was the last one to see Senator Amidala and Representative Binks.
Peppi: Theesa went to locate the sick maker. I can show you the path they took.
Anakin: [turns to the padawans] Go with the Gungan and see if you can find them. [whispers to her] And keep Nick calm and under control, we need whoever caused this whole mess alive.
Ahsoka: Can do, master.
The two follow the Gungan to where Amidala and Binks went.
Nick: So what do you know about this disease?
Peppi: Itsa only makes yousa sick if yousa drink the contaminated water.
Nick: So it can’t infect the air, good to know. By some chance do you have a sample of the virus?
Peppi: [shakes her head] Mesa do not. Unfortunately.
Nick: It’s ok. Just wanted to make sure.
Ahsoka: We’ll get to the bottom of this, and rescue Padme and Jar Jar.
Nick: I hope so.
They continue on, they eventually came across a forest and go in to find their ship, but Amidala and Binks are nowhere to be seen.
Nick: Is that their ship?
Peppi: [nods] Itsa is.
Ahsoka: I don’t see them anywhere. Maybe they got captured.
Nick: [notices a periscope coming out of the ground] Hide.
The three of them hid behind a tree, waiting for the periscope to sink back into the ground before they come out of hiding.
Nick: Well at least we know where the lab is.
Ahsoka: [contacts the other jedi] Masters, are you there?
Anakin: [answers] Did you find them?
Nick: Negative, but we think we found the lab. They must be inside. The whole place is wired with pressure sensors, meaning it will be impossible to use stealth to enter the lab.
Aayla: We have a plan for that.
Obiwan: We need you to plant a bunker bomb at the south end of the facility to create a distraction and to seal off the room containing the bombs while we go through the hatches.
Nick: Smart plan. Do we have any info in regards to the virus they’re making and the one in charge?
Anakin: The Scientist’s name is Dr. Vindi. They are trying to revive the Blue shadow virus and make it into an airborne version.
Nick becomes extremely worried about that, but it soon changes to rage within a matter of seconds.
Nick: [worried] Is he insane!? There is a reason why that disease was exterminated! We have to stop him before he releases the virus!
Aayla: Calm down, Padawan, we will stop him. Once you reach the south end, wait until it’s dark before you detonate the bomb, we will attack once it goes off.
Nick: Understood, master.
And so they wait for darkness, once given the signal, Ahsoka carefully levitates the bunker buster into position. Once there, she lets go and immediately upon hitting the ground, it explodes.
Nick: MOVE IN NOW! [ignites his lightsaber and charges in]
Ahsoka: [sighs] head first it is then. [turns to peppi] Wait here and make sure no one leaves.
Peppi: Okay then.
She goes after Nick, who is busy slaughtering the droid’s forces.
Nick: [deflecting blaster bolts and cutting down battle droids] Seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty. I’m on a role, keep it coming!
Ahsoka: [starts cutting down the droids] You seem to be in a better mood.
Nick: Hell yeah I am! I needed a good battle to get my mind off the nightmares.
Ahsoka: (At least he’s not thinking about that anymore).
Soon they were joined up with Captain Rex and some clones.
Rex: Sorry we’re late. [starts shooting]
Ahsoka: [deflecting blaster shots] It’s ok, but you might want to hurry up, Nick already has thirty kills.
Nick: Yeah, but I’m already passed that. [destroys a droideka before it could deploy] Make that number 34!
They keep pushing forward, they were soon joined up by Obiwan, Master Secura and a bomb squad.
Obiwan: Need a hand. [starts fighting]
Nick: Ahsoka and the others might, as for me, I’m all good. [cuts down a super battle droid]
Aayla: (It is good to see that he is making progress with his nightmares).
They keep on going, the masters splitting up and heading to where the bombs are with the bomb squads while the others keep the droids occupied. Soon Anakin contacts them and it’s not good news.
Anakin: Ahsoka, Nick, we got a huge problem.
Nick: On a scale of one to ten, how bad is it?
Anakin: Dr. Vindi activated the bombs and one of them is missing.
Nick: Definitely a ten then.
Anakin: Send out the clones to search the entire facility, I’m going after the doctor.
Ahsoka: What about Senator Amidala and Representative Binks?
Anakin: They’re safe with me, don’t worry. Just find that bomb.
Ahsoka: Can do master.
They continue to search with no luck until Padme radios in.
Padme: Ahsoka, I found the last bomb.
Ahsoka: Stay there. I get the bomb squad.
They do so and get to padme with just enough time to disarm the bomb. It was over. Jar Jar passes out upon the bomb being defused.
Nick: Well that ended well.
Ahsoka: I agree.
Padme: That little droid is still running around.
Rex: I doubt he can cause trouble.
Nick: Life lesson number one, never jinx yourself.
The jedi soon regroups to decide the next course of action. It was morning when the situation has been settled.
Nick: So who is going to escort Doctor Vindi back to Theed and who will stay here to watch over the Shadow virus samples get destroyed?
Aayla: You can head back with Master Kenobi and Skywalker while Ahsoka and I will stay with padme and the others.
Anakin: I’m not sure if this is the best plan.
Ahsoka: Don’t worry, Skyguy, we’ll be fine.
Nick: (Why do I get the feeling that something bad is going to happen).
The three of them move the doctor to the transport, but right as they were about to board it, they hear an alarm go off.
Nick: SON OF A BITCH! I KNEW SOMETHING WAS GOING TO HAPPEN!
Obiwan: Calm down, Nick. This isn’t the time to panic.
The ground shakes as an explosion where the bombs are being kept goes off.
Nick: With all due respect, master kenobi, THIS ISN’T THE TIME TO REMAIN CALM!
Anakin: [contacts ahsoka] Ahsoka, what’s going on down there?!
Ahsoka: The droids managed to set off a bomb with the virus. Master secura, the clones, and I managed to get into the safety room and seal the lab.
Anakin: And Padme?
Ahsoka: We haven’t seen her since the bomb.
Padme: [contacts them] Anakin, are you there?
Anakin: I hear you padme, are you ok?
Padme: We’re fine. Jar Jar and I were in one of the safety rooms when the bomb went off. We’re wearing our protective suits.
Anakin: [sighs with relief] The virus has been released.
Nick: Is Master Secura, Ahsoka, and the others ok?
Anakin: They made it to the safety room, they’re ok.
Aayla: I’m afraid not, some of the virus managed to get in before we sealed the door.
This upsets Nick greatly, but that turns to rage as he uses force choke on Doctor Vindi
Nick: [enraged] WHERE IS THE ANTIDOTE!?
Obiwan: Nick, calm down.
Vindi: [choking] I wasn’t….hired to...create the cure….for it. I was hired….to manufacture….the virus….and improve….its lethal….capacity.
Nick: Well you got three seconds to tell me how to create a cure or else you are going to pay with your life, you sick bastard.
Obiwan: That’s enough, Nick. Stand down.
Nick reluctantly does so.
Anakin: I hope you have a plan, Obiwan.
Obiwan: I do, there is more than one way to skin a womp rat. The fastest way to save them is to get Vindi back to the capital and find an actual antidote.
Vindi: You might as well kill me now, because there are some droids still down there. All it takes is for one of them to cut through one of the escape hatches for the virus to escape. And when that happens, ALL OF NABOO IS DOOMED TO DIE! [laughs evilly]
Nick sucker punches him in the face, knocking him out.
Nick: FUCK YOU, YA SICK PSYCHO!
Obiwan: What did Aayla say about your swearing, Nick?
Nick: Forgive me for saying this, master kenobi, but this isn’t the time.
Anakin: I agree. [contacts the others again] You still there, master Secura?
Aayla: I am. Did you find anything that can help?
Obiwan: Not yet, but you have to keep the droids from escaping the bunker, otherwise all of naboo will become infected with the virus.
Ahsoka: Understood, we will do what we can. [cuts connection]
The three jedi escort Vindin back to Theed, Captain Typho tells them of a possible cure for the Blue shadow virus but the key ingredient is on Iego, deep within separatist territory. With no other choice, they head for Iego. Upon exiting hyperspace, They notice numerous ship debris orbiting around Iego.
Anakin: What do you make of this?
Nick: Some kind of ship graveyard. I don’t like the look of this.
The ship soon lands on a platform on Iego. They exit only to be greeted by numerous battle droids, but Nick and Obiwan noticed that they didn’t have weapons and they were made with different kinds of parts, Anikan however doesn’t noticed until after he cuts down 18 of them.
Nick: [whispers to Obiwan] The fact they aren’t attacking us even after that has me confused, somewhat.
A kid soon approaches them, and he does not look happy.
????: Do you know how long it took for me to reprogram those droids?!
Anakin: Nope, and you are?
Jayboo: Jayboo. Jayboo hood.
[author’s note: I’m sorry if that is not his actual name]
Obiwan: I’m sorry for my friend’s rash behavior.
Jayboo: It took me nine months to reprogram them. [sits down on a hammock]
Nick: How did you make all of these droids?
Jayboo: It’s simple, when the Separatists left, they left all this junk behind. I used it to repair them and make them my servants.
Anakin: [examines the droids] I see you used a Macro protocol to wipe them all simultaneously, impressive.
Jayboo: I see you know your droid.You’re jedi aren’t you….[looks at Nick] I didn’t know mandalorians can become jedi.
Nick: [offended] I take offense at that.
Jayboo: Sorry. So how can I help you three?
Obiwan: We’re looking for some Risa Root.
Jayboo: [curious] What for?
Nick: a Scientist working for the separatist managed to revive the blue shadow virus and a few of our friends are infected with the disease.
Jayboo: Sorry to hear that, but I’m afraid you won’t make it back in time to save them. The system is haunted, cursed, whatever. Anyway, Jedi or not, no one gets off this rock alive. Not past Droll.
That scares the droids.
Obiwan: [curious] Droll?
Jayboo: The phantom ruler of Iego. He destroys anything we used to get off the planet. Fifty of our best pilots tried to escape. Fifty tried, fifty died.
Nick: That explains the ruined ships we saw.
Anakin: We’ll deal with that later.
Jayboo takes the three to a canyon, where the root is located at the bottom. Obiwan and Anakin climbs down while Nick uses his jet pack.
Anakin: [climbing down] So how do we get to the root?
Jayboo: It’s simple, follow the vines and it’ll guide you to the Risa root, but don’t touch them.
Obiwan: Besides the obvious, why not?
Jayboo: Because they don’t like it, and they got big sharp teeth.
Nick: Man eating plants? Fucking great.
Nick: I know, watch the swearing.
Anakin: [sarcastic] Can this get any better?
Jayboo: And watch out for the flying Zandoo!
Anakin: What’s a flying Zandoo?
Suddenly, some giant bat-like creatures fly past them.
Nick: [trying to avoid getting hit by the Zandoo] Anakin, I will kill you one of these days for jinxing us.
Anakin: It wasn’t my fault!
Anakin and Obiwan grab onto one of them. The Zandoo couldn’t handle the extra weight and began to slowly descend. The two jedi let go once safely on the ground.
Nick lands next to them.
Nick: That was too close for comfort.
Anakin: Why didn’t Nick carry us down?
Nick: Remember when Ahsoka grabbed onto my foot while I tried to fly away back on Corellia?
Anakin: Good point.
Anakin begins to dig for the root, however the man eating plants appear. Obiwan and Nick begin to cut the plants down with their lightsabers until Anakin managed to get the Risa root. They retreat back to the canyon wall and begin to climb back up while Nick provides cover by cutting down the plants more. Once the two were back up, Nick flies up towards them.
Nick: Root down, Droll to go.
Anakin: Sounds like some kind of superstitious legend to me.
Jayboo: He’s real, alright. But if you think you can leave the planet alive, then be my guest.
They return to the Twilight and the three jedi board the ship and leave the planet. They soon discover that it was an energy field being used as a security system to keep ships from leaving. With no choice, they turn back to the planet. Right as they land, they get a transmission from ahsoka and the others.
Ahsoka: [very sick] Master, we destroyed all of the remaining battle droids. Naboo is safe from contamination. [coughs] I repeat, Naboo is safe.
Padme: [sick] Promise me that no one opens up this bunker. [coughs] Good bye, Anakin.
The transmission ends, Anakin leaves the ship, followed by Obiwan.
Nick: (My suspicion is confirmed, he has a relationship with Padme, it’s not my business so I’ll just let him be and keep his secret safe).
Nick exits the ship and follows the two jedi to a council room where they are discussing how they would escape with the people of Iego. Obiwan comes up with the plan to use Jayboo’s vulture droids to crash into the energy nodes so they could destroy the primary emitter. They reprogram the vulture droids and the twilight takes off with the three jedi. THe vulture droids following suit. R2 takes control of the droids and uses them to intercept the energy beams and crash into the energy nodes. With a path to the primary emitter now clear, the Twilight opens fire on the primary emitter, destroying it and the rest of the emitters. With that, the people of Iego were now free to leave. Meanwhile, the jedi return to naboo with the Risa plant and create a cure for the blue shadow virus. Taking the necessary precautions to prevent the rest of naboo from getting contaminated, the jedi along with clones and Naboo security forces enter the bunker wearing hazmat suits and get those who were infected administered with the cure and get them on board transports back to theed so they could recover.
Nick: [approaches Aayla and Ahsoka] The medical droid says you and the others will make a full recovery.
Ahsoka: That’s good to hear. We never doubted that you would get us all out of this mess.
Nick: Funny because there were a few times I thought we wouldn’t make it in time.
Aayla: You did well, padawan. I am proud of you.
Nick: [blushes] It was nothing. [calms down] It will take a few days for you two to recover, unfortunatey. So you will be out of the fight for a while.
Ahsoka: It doesn’t matter. At least we all made it out alive.
Nick kisses them both on the forehead before leaving. He arrives at the cell where Vindi was being kept.
Nick: [turns to the guards] Leave us, I wish to talk to him in private.
Naboo guard: Yes sir. [leaves]
Nick: [enters] You failed, Vindi. The blue shadow virus is no more, and Naboo is safe.
Vindi: It doesn’t matter, once I escape from this cell, I will recreate it again, except next time, it will be way stronger.
Nick: I doubt there will be a next time….
Nick pulls out one of his pistols and shoots Vindi in the head, killing him.
Nick: ….because you are already a dead man. [leaves and closes the cell] (Don’t mess with the Archangels).
To be continued…...
