The party takes a shuttle to the navigator’s shelter, better known as the Nav’s Rest. The shuttles don’t work under a schedule, they often leave when there’s enough people on board or when the algorithm dictates (droids operate these vehicles). You are good to go as soon as you jump in.

You see three people in the shuttle.

A guy wearing a yellow hooded-jacket and a mask (similar to Jin-Roh’s wolf brigade masks). He is reading the newspaper, Nar-Shaddaa’s Gazette. You can read the front page, it says “IS THIS IT? Congress approves creation of the 9909st Legion, UNITA CORPO, the first division under the command of the Jedi in the ALLIANCE regime”.

A young Rodian with a (closed) antigrav-basket (similar to Grogu’s in the Mandalorian). The Rodian is watching a hologram of the Figrin Da'n and the Modal Nodes.

A muscular Devaronian that accompanies the kid, dressed in clothes that resemble doctor scrubs, the name on the tag reads “Lucy”, a patch on the Devaronian’s arm reads “KBSC”.

None of them seem bothered by you.

When the shuttle starts moving, the masked man puts the newspaper down, it seems he’s listening to music, he’s vibing to the beat. You can hear part of the lyrics: “Qoritjontû kûskottoi dzwolanjat.”

The Rodian asks Bibingui if she’s in the Accretion for the parade, this child explains they will visit nav’s rest to buy soil from Kamino, and Water from the mines of Mandalore.

In about 40 minutes, the shuttle will arrive to Nav’s Rest.

Nav’s rest has an approximate extension of 2 miles, it was built on rails-trails that once served for the (initial) construction works of the Accretion, it’s got an industrial look and a cyberpunk vibe; after walking up the stairs you’ll find the food-truck area and a marketplace buzzing with people. You won’t miss the sign “Enjoy COSMOS”, and the stay at A-SYNC’S CAPSULE spectaculars.

Vanta whispers to the team,

"There's no water in Mandalore, is there? I mean, Mandalore is no more, as far as I know. Do you guys know the song's language?"

And talks to the other group:

"What parade, is it going on now?"

Ohh yes... the parade! What parade?

The flying basket catches her attention and tells the kid: Hey young man! Whats in that flying basket. Can I touch it?

She looks at the kid and Lucy with "puppy ewok" eyes (´ ,, • ω • ,,) ♡

Before letting you know what happens next, @TMW please roll for precognition.

Togosho: 3D6#precognition ( 15 )*→*6(1 +3 +2)#Precognition (15)

Success by 9.

Does Togosho recognize the language from the music?

The masked man is getting ready to leave the shuttle, the next stop is close.

It seems the phrase you all heard was in Sith, being a Jensaarai, Togosho recognizes “Qorit” in “Qoritjontû”.

After the kid’s remarks, Lucy speaks:

“Please don’t mind the kid, he’s just repeating what he heard in the streets. Nav’s rest is famous because its market is among the most exotic of all, given this ship has visited almost every corner in the galaxy. And sorry, Ewok, you can’t peek into the basket.”

Since the kid and Bibingui were rather loud, the masked adds:

“The Parade’s to celebrate the Battle of Endor. You know: Decisive Rebel Alliance victory, death of Darth Sidious and redemption of Anakin Skywalker?

It's the first time such a thing will take place. I think "the Alliance" chose such a day to warn the opposition about things they are about to face. Especially after the "institution" of the new army and the recent assaults the alliance suffered.”

Togosho’s vision:

Lighting strikes the space above you; a shockwave expands and vibrates within your core, resonating like a heartbeat. The cry of “starfighters” quickly approach to your location, and then … An impact, an explosion: The shuttle is hit and flies away, it’s pushed out of the way while violently tumbling and rolling on the street, spitting you out. You sustain quite a beating: You suffer heavy bludgeoning damage and plasma burns that melts your armor combined with EMP shock. You lay supine on the floor, glued to the “pavement” with molten metal... you are dazzled and can’t see your friends, but you do notice a LARGE ship on the sky. You hear the beating of drums… and then, something stomps your head.

When your vision is over, the masked man is just leaving the shuttle.

Vanta scans the basket with his cyber(PUNK) eye. Success (rolled 7). He notices a pause in Togosho's actions.

Togosho gets into the doorway and tries to stop the man and to prevent the shuttle from leaving its current spot and he explains his vision to the others.

To Togoshow:

Togosho your vision, we must change fate as it happens, we will leave this vessel first and then the other folk can leave. It seems to be dependent on the masked man leaving. If you will we can take him out as we disembark.

To Bibingui

The battle drums calls us into action sister!

To the other people

DO NOT MOVE!

Bibingui speaks: so if they are on us and missiles are going to fall on us. Is there a place where I can run and hide?
