Once Yorik received all the information King Floydd was going to offer, he dutifully escorted the statue to Zando's courier.  Upon meeting with him, Yorik wished both the courier and the statue well and watched carefully the entire time their cargo was transferred.

Yorik took a deep breath and steeled himself to speak once again with the statue but he would focus on the answers which would help them all and be most productive.

"Great king Floydd, if I may ask, how did you create this Crystal staff of Peace as you call it?  If you later fashioned it into a sword then we will need to either find it or possibly create another one.  

"If it's possible to share this knowledge then I ask that you do so with us.

"Any assistance you can provide can help to reduce the corruption of your legacy and further restore the memory of your name if you choose to help us."

Don't need to deal with this, just yet. Besides... There is something I must do for myself, before this dream, too, dissipates like the fog. 

Astrid turns on her heel, more marching pivot than pirouette, and returns to her quarters. Dream still fresh in her head, she pulls the old Chiss guide from her small shelf of actual books. Uncertain what to expect, she self-consciously opens the book, seeking new meaning from its tattered pages. 

there are dots of colours on varios pages, you now know this is a note, it says " when you are ready Astrid This One will be waiting"

Yorik headed back to the hangar bay and knelt in meditation beside Nix.  

"Join me, Nix, in getting our minds and bodies focused for what is to come?  Both my previous instructor, Sar Agorn, and now an ancient king of the Sith have pointed out that meditation and inner reflection were the focal points of great changes.  Well, obviously that and their mastery of the Force.  So, between you and me, buddy, I think there may be something to this meditation thing and I believe that we should begin doing it as much as possible if we're going to achieve the inner peace and serenity that we'll need for what's looming on the horizon."

Mind still reeling from her dream, and the personal message she had subsequently deciphered, Astrid nearly trips over Durrak as he sits meditating at the base of the now dormant statue. Continuing into the hold to check on the Acklay, she sees Yorik kneeling next to the Rancor.

Kriffing hell, the Crazy is contagious, and I fear I'm next...

Worra removes his holosuit and throws on some cargo clothes he finds under one of the beds. No need to risk ruining my holosuit on this one. He flips his blaster on stun and heads down to the hold to assist with the transfer of the creatures.

[ @TheShard did you have a chance to modify my blaster?]

Yorik rushed to the transmitter and keyed the comms for Worra, Astrid, or anyone else with more gift for gab or subtlety than he possessed.  There was no way they were turning Nix over to be experimented on.  And if Astrid had designs on keeping the Acklay for her mount then as crazy as the idea sounded, he'd back her play til she revealed her reasons for her insanity.

"Negative Cargo Liner 4-4-20.  Adjustment to transferral.  At this time, you're receiving only the statue and other incidentals.  Creature transport has been re-routed at this time. Please confirm."

Frak! Just sending Rssik out here for something like this, is sending a message, in itself.. Guys. We have to give him something. 

"Liner 4-4-20, be advised that we are prepping the Acklay for transfer, but the Rancor is off-the-table. I say again: the Rancor is off-the-table. We have a neurologist and a medic keeping it alive, but there has been a delayed reaction to the tranqs, and moving it at this time is not a viable option. We do, indeed, fear that we could also be dealing with pathogens such as we encountered on New Taris. If Zando wants the Rancor alive, he's going to have to wait. Have your boarding party don Keter-class hazard suits and stand by. We will hail you when the Acklay is secured."

The Cargo ship turns up 

They only send a Text communication

 

" PREPARE FOR TRANSFER< HAVE  ! BACTA TANK ! PREPARE BOTH CREATURES AND STATUE FOR TRANSPORTAION>~ "

(Wooo! A Bacta Tank! How much does it cost? I'll deduct the cost from my credit balance. Do we need to do any medical or mechanical rolls to install it or does the price include that?)

Thank you for the supplies and Bacta tank, Cargo Liner. Please be advised in my professional opinion this should be a drop and go for your team. Until we've had more time to study this situation it's best to limit outside contact. My team has already been exposed so there's no reason for us to avoid further contamination as you can see from the images of gore that my friend has shown you. You're team however has not been exposed at this point and should not risk it. Once you're on board please ensure you have an escort at all times to ensure that you are in one of our designated safe zones. Bennar isn't entirely sure what is going on since he is so new to the ship, but is following Yorik's lead in hopes that his opinion as a doctor can influence the other crew. Turning to Yorik, I assume they are coming on board and there's some reason you don't want them to have full reign of the ship. Mind giving me a quick two minute rundown of what I should avoid divulging? We can get to the why later, but for now I'll follow your lead.

[ @TheShard I was hoping to get a mod installed on my blaster pistol to improve the custom grip. Its the first mod, so it would be a 3 purple mechanics check]

Worra paused, confused by the reaction of his crewmates. "What's our angle on this one?" he whispered to Astrid.  "My mask will keep me safe enough to manage a space transfer, if its important to keep them from boarding." Worra searched the hold for a pair of loader hooks and a suitable supply crate to load the supplies. Provide the ship docks close enough, he shouldn't have too much trouble escorting the supplies over.

Angle? Have you seen those two (replying in a whisper, motioning toward Yorik, and indicating Nix)? Yorik got to the comms first, and seems determined to rescue the gluttonous ice cream fiend from whatever fate Zando has in store for it. I'm just trying to back his story up, and buy us a few minutes. If this bluff doesn't work... or even if it does, we will have much to answer for. 

Activating the restraint collar, Astrid summons Spy-D, and turns back to Worra. Let's get this thing loaded into the Collector. Rssik needs to produce results, just as we do. If we give up the Acklay, along with the statue, I suspect he will accept it without much of a fight.

Worra's hand stayed on his newly fitted blaster in case the Acklay got too frisky. Thanks to the Shard, the grip now perfectly fit into his palm, though an energy cell had to be replaced in the process.

Along with Astrid, Worra managed to wrangle the critter into a departure pod, which should hopefully protect it from the space transfer for as long as necessary.

he buys it, and the transfer goes smoothly ... Just " I expect a full report on this  Problem!"

 

There's no cost but you might get a side quest later.
