So It Begins, Pt. 3 by MioraaNyte ()
"As you can see, we now have just a bit over 96 hours to pack up this entire compound and begin our journey to the new base of operations," Zefaara said to the group present. Turning to address the Commander and Omega, she continued, "Trego is familiar with the plan, however I am aware that you two are not. Omega, with your heightened abilities, I assume you will be apprised with a few hours of the details," then turning to the Commander and adding with a slight chuckle, "unfortunately Commander, you are not gifted with these attributes, it may take a bit longer to get you up to date... no offense intended. I'm sure though, with assistance from Omega and your own uncanny talents to improvise and adapt, everything will go well."
Responding to the Dark Lord's words, Omega stated, "don't worry My Lord, I'll have him up to date in no time, even if it takes all night."
Moving around to the front of her desk, Zefaarra continued the briefing, "excellent, my dear, now on to other business. Trego, as you can see, there has been one change to the plan. With the addition of our new commanders, Omega will now be working closely with you to control the logistics of this task, giving you more freedom to oversee the physical aspects."
Acknowledging his master's comments, Trego replied to the Sith Lord, "thank you Master," then turning to Omega, "I welcome your assistance, Lieutenant Commander. Paperwork has never been one of my strongest skills." Then again speaking to Zefaara, "I also have two more items to report, My Lord." After receiving a nod from his superior, he went on, "Chief Gruud has completed the project and eagerly awaits your and the Commander's inspection. Also, I have received a communique from our field operative informing us that she and the additional personnel you required will be arriving at 0830 tomorrow morning at the central spaceport."
"Great news, Trego, thank you. Well, I believe that more or less covers it, time go set things rolling," the Dark Lord informed her entourage, "Trego, you and Omega are dismissed to begin your duties. The Commander and I have another meeting to attend, then after that I must prepare to address the group at 1800 with the news." As the meeting concluded, the trio stood, bowing their heads in respect to the Dark Lord. While Trego and Omega departed to carry out their orders, Zefaara addressed the Commander, "come Commander, shall we see what Gruud has for us?"
Leaving the study and walking down the corridor to their next meeting, the Commander turned to the Sith and asked, "My Lord, if I may ask, where are we going?"
"I have a gift for you Commander," Zefaara returned, "a little something the engineering department has been working on for over a year, now" Then adding with a smile, "I believe you'll like it."
Arriving a few minutes later to their destination, the pair were met by Chief Gruud. After exchanging formalities, Gruud led them to a walkway overlooking the hangar bay. Pointing to the starship parked within, the Ugnaught spoke, "My Lord, Commander... it is my pleasure on behalf of the Engineering Department, to present the newest addition to our fleet. May it serve us well." Then motioning for the duo to follow, continued, "if you would be so kind as to follow me, it awaits your inspection and approval."
After the inspection tour concluded, the three people gathered at the base of the boarding ramp. Looking at Gruud, Zefaara spoke, "Chief, you and your staff have done an outstanding job, please convey my highest praises to them all." Then speaking to the Commander, "this ship is the vanguard of our operations. With it, you'll be conducting missions vital to a new era for the Empire. A new era of prosperity never before imagined, where all our people become united in goal, purpose and stature. The future of a new Empire is now part of your destiny to shape and achieve. May the Force serve you well, Commander."
Speaking up, Gruud interjected into the conversation, "you know it's bad luck not to have a name for a ship before it starts its journeys. Have either of you a name for it?"
Looking to the Commander, Zefaara said, "your ship, Commander, I leave the naming to you."
After a moment of thought, the man replied to the Sith, "My Lord, knowing what the purpose of this fine ship will be, I can only think of one name befitting. Without trying to sound too bold, I would like to christen her, Zefaara's Vision, in your honor."
With a smile on her face, the Dark Lord replied, "it is you who honors me, Commander, I happily approve." Turning to depart, the Sith called over her shoulder, "now, if you'll both excuse me, I have to prepare for a broadcast this evening, good day gentlemen..."

I just can't fathom the level of work you put in on these, it's really remarkable. The story itself is great, and then you look at these images which perfectly follow, each having taken however many hours to put together and render, then in this sequence, and you have such a complete work. This is so awesome. :)

Thank you, Bella.
Though it can sometimes be tedious, this is a labor of love... ... ... and it keeps me of the streets and out of trouble. LOL

Keep up the fantastic work!

I'm really enjoying your story, it seems most Star Wars based tales are told from the Jedi side.
It's really refreshing to see tales from the Sith side that have them acting like decent people and not power hungry, blood thirsty maniacs.
Looking forward to the next.
