Your opinion is not necessarily mine; Your opinion is not fact; Your opinion is not absolute. Your opinion is a perspective.

Its true. Haha
OOC: Sigh.. It would have been so much more fun if you had come to me, but fine. You bore :P
On the moon's horizon a massive entity seems to almost raise itself out from the moon's crust, as the Viscount Dreadnought comes into the Imperials field of view. It seems to have a belt around it, as Ten Nebula Star Destroyers form a ring circumventing the Dreadnought, from port, to top, to starboard and to bottom. On each flank is Ten Scythe Battlecruisers, making it a total of Twenty vessels, along with Seventeen Corona frigates also divided between the flank and Ten Nexus Corvettes evenly distributed among the ships.
Behind the Federation Core fleet comes three Endurance Carriers, the entire fleet have emptied all bays of available Starfighters and bombers, already flying in formation in between the ships.
Supreme Commander Drayson adresses his commanders and com officers; "Open fire immediately once we enter weapons range. Have the Scythes engage their Ardents and Vigils along with the Coronas. Have the starfighters only act defensively in their screening, they are to cover the bigger ships but are not to directly engage those corvettes.
Corvettes are to stay in cover behind the bigger ships and add to the screening.Have the Nebulas deal with the enemy Star Destroyers, that Super Star Destroyer is our job gentlemen. Now get too it!" Drayson orders.
As the rest of the fleet enters weapons range, two of the carriers stay behind the Viscount while the last one stays back and activate gravity wells.
A crossfire patrol scans the Imperial force along with a visual account to confirm and then disappears behind the moon, letting another group take up the patrol.
OOC: Instead of a Strike for Pain, I hope you guys won't mind I add something to my move. This is a good ol' standoff anyway. :P
Looks fine to me. Good to have to back!
The Federation force holds position.
A single Crossfire is detected by the Imperials, heading outside the system.
The Federation force holds position and now begins jamming communications.
If people had 999 crystals in their lightsaber is would stop being a lightsaber, its physical proportions would be unmanageable. And even if you say they are much smaller to account of that, people still do not gain ANYTHING would doing so.
How is imposing a maximum by definition... optional?
OOC: I warned you. Lol
That said, maybe I should have advised you to take a more stealthy approach :p
Why do we care whether it has 1,2 or 3 Crystals or what color they are? More doesn't mean better. Even if it did, there is obvious physical limits to consider. You can't wield a lightsaber if its the size of a Huttling.
Imposing a maximum on something so incredibly insignificant seems ludicrous. Not to mention things reaching a whole new level of micromanagement.
And mind you this is coming from me, perhaps the greatest control freak this RP have ever seen xD
I was a VICE ADMIRAL. Then I was granted a promotion to Admiral. Then I decided that wasn't enough for my ego, so now I'm Supreme Commander. Like Revan was :P
OOC: I was going to say, naive. But yeah, that too. Lol
Although Nym is an idiot. "Curiosity" omg.. xD
"I'm a Jedi master, even with my permission, it is not within Shiva's ability to perform this action, not fully. When she is done, I would know, not what or why, but that something is missing, that my mind is altered.
I would then decide to find out what is missing, and even if I could not recover those memories on my own. The Jedi Council certainly could. Your efforts would be rendered meaningless."
"Are you sure those are the real reasons? No matter. I must say I am disappointed Nym, in more ways than one." Akarab says and ponders on Nym's decision for a moment.
"I will take my leave then. May the force be with you." He bows slightly and then proceeds out to the landing pad.
"Hmm. Perhaps... On one condition, I'll go with you. Unless Shiva intends to rejoin the Jedi Order, I must insist on a Jedi being assigned to help guard this object and seek to understand its purpose. Since this Darth Kay is involved, there is all the more reason for the Jedi to be involved." Akarab says, hoping to pirate would accept.
The fact alone that this Darth Kay was interested was enough to validate Jedi interference. However, since he is on neutral soil and both parties are here on behalf of the Kinyen government, his Jedi authority was much less than it would have been in Federation space. He was unsure of the pirate's motives, him being a pirate and mercenary after all.
Although right now, he was mostly trying to figure out how to explain to the Jedi Council that he have joined a mercenary group, if Nym accepts.
"I would be remiss in my duties as a Jedi, if I did not point out the danger this object might be to you and those around you.
I hope you don't misunderstand me and its not intended as a ruse, but perhaps this thing would better in the hands of the Jedi, kept in our Temple Vaults on Eriadu."
"Hmm. Besides being a weapon, I am unsure as to the purpose of this object..." Akarab says as he gives Nym the object back.
Akarab studies it, but doesn't seem to be able to translate it at first glance. He reaches out towards the object with the force hoping the mysterious object, if truly Rakatan, would react to it somehow.
