Nevin watched the darkness of space retreat away from the azure-white ice of the planet infront of them. The shuttle had been inoperative earlier, up until only a few minutes ago. Therefore, it was just more time for whoever was down there to freeze to death.

He clenched his jaw, looking around, anxiously, for what he knew was in orbit of Anteevy. While this place was officially a backwater planet, there was far more importance here for the Empire. Only the most high officers in the Empire were aware of it, and even then, it was still a matter of non-clarity. But Nevin had been in charge of its security. He knew the system in and out, possibly more so than everyone except the designers.

It wasn’t long before the comm channel was keyed, and the ship began to beep. The pilot looked back at the lieutenant, prepared to answer it. Nevin shook his head and stepped up to the communications panel, activating the channel himself.

There was no output from the speakers. As the pilot and the few troops in the hold watched, Nevin entered an alphanumeric string. Praying that the codes hadn’t been updated since, he close the channel.

Since the small shuttle wasn’t incinerated, Nevin guessed the code to deactivate the orbital defenses had worked. Smirking to himself, he nodded back to the pilot. “Take us down,” He ordered.

“Sir, what’s going on?” The man asked, although complying with Antilles’ order. “This place seems like a lockdown facility.”

“It is,” Nevin responded bluntly. “This is where the Empire makes their Dark Troopers.”

The pilot’s eyes widened, then he turned back to the viewport and guided the ship into the atmosphere.

Holding on to a pipe for stability, Nevin noted that he had to tell the Alliance just what this place was. He’d forgotten to actually make a statement on the various “top-secret” facilities of the Empire. He would be sure to do so, on his return to Tatooine, if the Empire didn’t incinerate them first.
