After securing thethey were searching for, our favorite team of space hoarders head to the lower levels of Coruscant to buy and sell some items of questionable legality.
As they leave, the notice that the street they are on is too quiet. A mysterious man appears with two shadowy figures behind him and says, "You don’t know me, but you won’t be interrupting our operations anymore. He then tells the people behind him, “Deal with them, or you’ll have to deal with me.”. The two people reveal themselves to be Nej and Iella, two pirates they have previously put in jail. Several more thugs appear behind the girls blocking everyone’s escape, and at the other end of the alley, two swoop bikes and more pirates appear to block in the groups speeder truck. Shara convinces Iella that she won’t win this fight, but Nej draws her blasters and starts attacking. The crew fights their way to the speeder truck as Iella fights her way through the pirates. During the battle, Nej appears to go down, and Iella dissapears in the kerfluffle. The crew all make it to the speeder truck, and the swoop bikes give chase, but Showtime quickly dissuades them with her heavy repeating blaster. They escape, but not without taking heavy damage.
The crew heads back to Dodge, then leaves for Excelsior station. They find Calista and decide to accept a lower payment in exchange for her bracelet. They leave for Ord Mantell, where they rest, and make some repairs at the spaceport.
