- Shootout with the pirates went… well? It did end with the pirates ramming the Diminishing Return which barely survived the entanglement. The same can't be said for the pirates.
- Investigation of the pirate base revealed the existence of the Minimacs a slave race of kobold like creatures that were bound to the Zeddans.
- Returning the captives to Count Drisco, the Diminishing Return had the tables turned on them. The Count's Father had vanished years ago on an exploration mission. Only recently, had parts of his ship, the Novahammer shown up at local scrap dealers. He also intimated, that if the party were to find and return his father, he would offer 7000 Credits, but might reward them more for proof that his father was dead.
- Some investigation turned up a possible red market dealer named Rorack in the Bunduki system who may have parts of the Novahammer.
- Questioning Rorack lead to a false lead, as he claimed he got his goods from Dwarfstar.
- Dwarfstar, was able to point them to Deputy Governor Tarkin, the real power in the Bunduki privateering racket.
- After making nice with Gov. Tarkin, and getting him good and drunk, he revield that Count Drisco's father, Ivar Drisco, had been taken prisoner after trying to attack an Imperial Star Destroyer and since then has been working as a slave on the Imperial resort planet of Kaal.
- A few days travel to Kaal, and the party landed, sending Flip in using his falsified imperial credentials.
- In the meantime, Rhea had sent word to both Imperial and Rebel authorities with evedence of what Rorak was up to.
- Something happened while Flip was in there. Imperial guards took the rest of the crew into custody, and led them to a secured meeting room where a Flip, with a bandage on his head where the restraining bolt had been attached, sat with his feet on the table, waiting for the party…
