Mission Report 75-005

Target: Training Mission against Special Shadow Troop Ace

Location: A Republic Training Camp

Commander Jake: ‘O.K. Troopers. You know the course and you know the rules. The first team that can claim the 501st helmet and comes back here wins.’

Commander Jake: ‘The two teams fighting against each other this time are: Team Ace and…’

‘…Team Sting.’

Commander Jake: ‘No weapons or any other tools are allowed. Only one rope per team and your will to win is all you need.’

Commander Jake: ‘May the best Team win.’

Quickly the Shadow Troopers took the lead and went through the first challenge.

TG: ‘What takes you two so long down there?’

Link: ‘Josh is scared of heights.’ He looked down to Josh. ‘It’s just half a meter….let go and jump!’

TG: ‘You’ve got to be kidding me!’

Josh: ‘Nearly theeeeere…..’ he said and after 2 more minutes he finally reached the ground, followed by Link and TG.

The next challenge was a climbing up a giant tree, across one of the massive branches and then climb back down again. Team Ace had a little help in form of a very useful gadget.

And very quickly they went up to the top of the giant tree.

And with support from the ground, the second member quickly got to the top.

Soon they found their next quick route to get down to the ground again.

Finally the Stingers made it to the next stage of the course. Secured to each other, they started to climb.

And down the other side again.

Meanwhile Team Ace was racing through difficult terrain getting closer to the Target.

With the Stingers behind them, Team Ace reached the Target first and with the 501st helmet, raced back to the finish zone.

TG: ‘Come on guys….we can still make it!’

Link: ‘Looks like we’ve lost.’

TG: ‘Yep.’

Josh: ‘…’

Commander Jake: ‘Well, it looks like we have a winning team.’

Commander Jake: ‘Team Ace was the first team to return with the Winners Trophy…’

A happy cheer from the Team Ace.

Commander Jake: ‘But!’

Commander Jake: ‘Since Team Ace didn’t stick with the rules…Sergant TG?’

TG stepped forwards: ‘Yes Sir?’

Commander Jake: ‘If you ever intend to leave the Stingers, you will have a safe place with the 501st Legion.’

The Commander went to the Team Ace leader and took the helmet back.

Commander Jake: ‘And since Team Ace cheated, Team Stinger is the winner of this Training Competition. See you around next time.’

And with these words he left the two groups. Team Ace was still trying to convince the Commander that you have to use everything you can get on the battlefield, while the Stingers decided to go back to the Cantina to celebrate before they headed back to their base.




Mission Report 75-004 – Part II

While TG, Josh and the two ARF Troopers were closing in on the enemy, the Tactical Droid caught up with his three Commando Droids.

Tactical Droid: ‘You must eliminate these Clone Troopers at all cost.’

Commando Droid Leader: ‘Roger.’

Meanwhile: TG, Josh and the two ARF Troopers arrived a point where one their new friends had to leave.

AT-RT ARF Trooper: ‘Sorry, but I have to go back to our base. My AT-RT is almost out of power.’

TG: ‘Be careful and thanks for your help.’

The three Troopers didn’t realize that they were already surrounded by the Enemy they were hunting.

Then suddenly a deep mechanical voice called out ‘ATTACK!’

All three Commando Droids started their attack. TG, Josh and the ARF Trooper spread out to face them.

Josh’s opponent attacked from above.

The ARF Trooper dropped down to get cover and opened fire back at the Droid.

TG struggled under the attacks from the Commando Droid Leader. Those Droids are so much more agile and harder to fight against then the normal Battle Droids.

Then a shot. A little explosion and the Commando Droid who nearly managed to overcome the ARF Trooper dropped down.

A second well placed shot from somewhere and the Droid Josh was fighting, fell to the ground.

TG lost his rifle while trying not to get killed by the Commando Droid. Then….

‘Say good night, Clanker.’ came a voice over the COM in the other Trooper helmets.

One more precise shot an the last Droid was eliminated and dropped to the ground.

TG, Josh and the ARF Trooper joined their saviour.

TG: ‘You are a Commando, aren’t you?’

Josh:’You are Delta 62?! I saw you and the Delta Squad a year ago…’

Scorch: ‘Yes. I am from the Delta Squad. We were here to destroy the Separatist Base and after that we heard that you youngsters might needed some help.’

TG:’Thanks for your help, Delta 62! You really came just in time……’ he paused. ‘So the Enemy Base is destroyed?’

Scorch: ‘Yes. Your order is now to get these data crystals back to the Senat.’

TG & Josh: ‘Aye Sir.’

Scorch: ‘Follow your friend here to his base, then return to Coruscant as quick as you can. Your mission here is over.’

TG: ‘Understood.’

Scorch left the Clone Troopers after handing the Data Crystals to TG.

The group hurried back to the the Republic Base to contact their Commando and get a ship back to Coruscant as quick as possible.
