An Encounter Doesn’t Go Well
As Trig Mabbu contemplated the potential for profit he would make of jacking the destroyer with the help of the Jedi, a angry group of human arrived at his table, clearly looking for trouble.
The humans (probably space pirates, thought Trig) were pointing at Rishna (a.k.a. itchka) who was currently hanging out under the table for some reason.
As far as Trig could determine between all the cursing and spacer lingo, they were accusing Rishna of rigging their astromech droid, that he had repaired, to short the hyperdirve which result in the ship exploding.
While trying to verify the humans were correct in blaming Rishna, the difficulties of inter species communications raised its ugly head, and instead of calming the human, Trig managed to make them even more angry. They blamed him for Rishna’s actions and demanded money for repairs to their droid and their ship. Trig tried to explain that Rishna was not acting on his orders, but must have made a mistake, he wouldn’t deliberate try to kill someone using a droid. However, the Jawa’s species reputation was working against Trig and everyone started complain about the problems they had with Jawas.
His two Togorian bodyguards, reacting the imminent violence, did what Togorians do best, flex their muscles and try to intimidate the other guy. Garash LongFang gave them a long look at his claws, as he carved a row of slashes into the table. But Mmurn opened his mouth to tell the humans they were about to make a mistake, which unfortunately just added fuel to the fire.
The spaces, led by their Captain, began to incite the crowd against the Jawa and Trig himself. Fearing things were going to get out of hand, Mmurn decided to shut up the group’s spokesman buy bringing a chair down on his head. After that things went right to Bantha Podo. Blasters set on stun began firing as human responded to the Togorians. In the ensuing gun battle, Trig was stunned unconscious as was the Gran, Yagi. Stun bolts were bouncing off Mmurn’s armor like rain, and Risha was sneaking away. With Trig out of the fight, the only sensible thing to do was to get out of the bar before things got much worse. Yagi attempted to get into the fight, but a stun bolt or two, quickly rendered him unconscious as well.
Garash grabbed Yagi and snagged Rishna as he sprinted for the door with Rishna firing over his shoulder to keep the humans head down. Mmurn tastefully draped his boss over one shoulder as he also beat feet to the door. Lira had already exited before the fight, as she wanted to check out the other Jedi’s ship. While the bar erupted into a riot, the party was able to clear the street just before the Black Suns enforcer squad showed up and began firing wide angle military stun rifles into the bar.
Unfortunately, Yagi took another stun blast to the back as they exited, so he would not be recovering any time soon. Wisely the Togorians put some distance between them and the bar before finding a flop house to rent a room where they could wait off the street for their unconscious party members to recover. A few hours later, when Trig was once again awake and functional, they got a visitor. It was a slicer from the Black Suns, who offered to erase all electronic records of them from the bar fight and the black sun computer for a 1,500 cr. fee. Trig decided it was worth it to get rid of the records, so he paid the slicer his fee.
The party decided to lay low for the evening, only going out to get some dinner before settling in for the night. They planned to report to the Jedi’s ship at first light to put some distance between themselves and the port. As luck would have it, dinner proved to be far more interesting that anyone anticipated…
