The Republic flotilla enters the system just behind the Imperial Strike Force.

Umbra forwards a message to Admiral Hul. "We will provide cover from the rear as you advance through the asteroid belt, and provide support in case Hutt reinforcements arrive. Umbra out."

The Republic assault teams wait elsewhere for the right moment to enter the system and strike at the Dragon Fang.

The Republic strike teams form up near 3rd flotilla in several boarding craft of various types.

Umbra sits at the command bridge of his flagship. He responds to Hul's comment after the channel is opened, "I wouldn't mind briefly discussing a game plan over a secure channel, all things considered, with their arrival this certainly changes things. At least if the Enclave forces haven't already been briefed on the full situation yet. It would be wise to make sure we're all on the same page."

"Tch" Umbra disappears in a flash of light just as the bullet is about to impact his chest plate. He reappears several feet above Aaron, shifts his weight and flips backward to the upside down position. He then takes aim with his dual scatter blasters and sends a rain of blaster bolts over Aaron's head.

Korhol senses the shot coming. He wouldn't be able to sidestep this one. He drops to his knees, bends backwards and slides forward; the bullet passing just over his face. At the same time he reaches out and force pulls his dual pistols back into his hands, aims forward, and fires a volley blaster shots at Aaron.

Umbra narrowly dodges the projectiles once again. He responds with a bolt of electricity aimed at the silver pistol, intending to knock it from Aaron's hand.

The Republic 3rd Flotilla forms up under Commander Umbra just outside Hutt space. They, at first, take the transit route shared by the Hutts and Republic between the Mon Calamari Sector and Republic core territory before slipping under the Hutt's radar and making their way towards the rendezvous point. Knowing the route well, the task is easy for even a sizable fleet such as theirs to slip past the Hutt observers.

While significantly delayed, the Republic fleet is ready for action immediately upon arrival; their strike force assembled and ready.

Korhol's chest plate softens the blow but he still grunts and recoils as it impacts due to the strength of his opponent. He doesn't let go of Aaron's arm however, and still goes for the disarm.

"The plan is sound, excuse my boasting. While I would feel more at ease if we knew more about what we are up against, it seems it can't be helped."

"I may be able to contribute some ships from our fleets as well, but it would mean the Republic would fully expose its involvement in these operations and thus break the current agreements we have with the Hutts. So unless I can bring this up with the senate in a timely manner, I'm afraid my hands are tied in that regard. Although, if its additional troops or droids we need, I can arrange for that quite easily and quickly."

"I'm not sure as to what he is speaking of..." Umbra looks at Tsark and then back to the Tion representatives. "While I do admit that have a plethora of resources at my disposal, I unfortunately will not be able to provide an appropriate distraction. With all due respect, rather I think that my team should be the ones to destroy the Dragon Fang. I have amassed a strike force of my best men, they are specialists at infiltration and sabotage, and can handle themselves excellently in a firefight; even against superior numbers and firepower." Umbra speaks confidently.

"Not only that but we've analyzed the new tactics and military technology at the Hutt's disposal and have equipped ourselves with appropriate countermeasures. The raid on the TE Headquarters on Sleheyron and the Anzillu proved to be quite enlightening as to the Hutts' newfound military strength. Soha and his subordinates clearly wish to exert far more power than the Cartel has ever before."

"I can guarantee the Hutt Dreadnought's destruction with a mere fraction of the force that the Imperial's would send to do the deed. And at mere fraction of the time as well, which would potentially minimize the casualties and risk for all parties involved, and maximize the damage done to our mutual foe."

It was rather inconvenient that the Imperial agents failed to acquire the other half of the data, Umbra thought. Despite that however, he couldn't help but feel a hint of satisfaction that his Specters yielded more success on their mission than the Sith.

Umbra reaches into a pouch on his belt and reveals a data chip containing a copy of the data. He opens his palm and it begins levitating towards the Tion representatives.

"This was everything we could gather. Hopefully its enough." He says.

Korhol swiftly reacts by moving his left arm to push the gun barrel to the side. However, without his other arm to use for leverage it off-balances his throw, but through sheer brute strength, Korhol is still able to pull Aaron partially into the air before moving his left palm to push on Aaron's chest and slam him into the floor. He follows up by lifting Aaron's left arm up and twisting his wrist to disarm him.

The Tion Hegemony? Well that would explain a lot about this mysterious ally, Umbra thought. The Republic has secretly grown very weary of the Hutts stranglehold over the outer rim. If Tion wished to overthrow them, they would make a very useful long term ally depending on how this works out. He couldn't help but contemplate the possibilities.

Meanwhile, Umbra and his operatives follow along.

The Republic shuttle lands and Umbra, Thaxos and a small retinue of Spec Force marines exit. Umbra takes note of the Imperial troopers and Sith nearby in the hanger, but largely ignores them. The commandos stay on guard but largely try not to provoke anything. For now they wait to be greeted.

Just as Aaron does this, Korhol has already begun moving, as though he knew this was coming. He drops his pistols, uses his right hand to push Aaron's gun to the right, away from his chest. Korhol then secures Aaron's left arm with his free limb, and moves his right hand to Aaron's left wrist, attempting to pull off a throw move over his shoulder.

One of Korhol's arms begin moving to track Aaron's movement before the dodge even fully registers in Korhol's brain. His reflexes are wired, sudden movements movements could prove fatal to his opponents. Just about midway through Aaron's dodge, Korhol takes another shot with his pistol sending another cone of blaster bolts his way.

Korhol makes sharp and deliberate movements to avoid the projectiles just barely without wasting energy or leaving himself open to other attacks, wary of the second pistol in Aaron's hand. Korhol predicts the bullet trajectories perfectly and after taking a few steps forward to close the distance to his opponent, he lets loose a scatter blast of blaster bolts from both his pistols at close range.

Umbra smirks. He pushes his cloak back and reveals a couple of unreasonably large pistols of his own. Or rather they looked closer to heavily modified scatter blasters, though one couldn't really say for sure until they saw them in action, and knowing Umbra, that's what he was going for. To keep his opponent guessing and have a myriad of tricks up his sleeve.

Thaxos is on full alert at this point, Umbra signals him not to interfere, but the Mandalorian remains vigilant nonetheless. Not only for the sake of his partner, but also to keep himself out of the crossfire as well.

"Oh yes, we shall." Korhol stares down his opponent, his weapons at the ready, likely waiting for Aaron to make the first move.

OOC: lol...

Considering the reports of the Hutts and their lackeys significantly upping their arsenal in addition to the construction of these dreadnoughts, Umbra wasn't taking any chances. Not only that, but he didn't exactly trust their mysterious allies nor did he like the fact that they were also consorting with Imperial operatives. It all felt suspicious, but perhaps he was be paranoid as usual. Umbra understood, after all, that they all have a serious common enemy that needed to be crushed by any means necessary. There was little room for error, so he and Thaxos would lead the Republic strike teams personally.

Once the new strike teams are organized and briefed on the situation, the Republic sends its Spec Force marines aboard the Rook, an experimental stealth corvette and transport craft. Aboard the craft was of course Umbra himself and his loyal bodyguard and assassin Thaxos, 40 Spec Force Marines, 150 Spec Force variant KR-1 Battle droids, and a number of utility and probe droids for support.

The Rook waits at the designated coordinates until further instruction.

Umbra stands and pushes the chair in, stretching a bit.

"How do you wanna play this? I'm up for whatever."
