The Imperial issued shuttle glided slowly out of the endless void of hyperspace, creaking unsteadily from the stress. This brought a frown to Chewbacca's simian-like features. Sure the Empire had been gracious enough to provide him with transportation to his homeworld, but the least they could've done was provide him with something more realiable.

Pushing aside his doubts, the Wookiee's hands moved over the control console of the shuttle as he peered out the forward viewport. There she was, just as he remembered her. The green emerald planet of Kashyyyk hung before him with all her majestic beauty. It had been years since he had been here last and it brought back many nostalgic memories. This would be a good visit indeed.

If only his cub were here. With the play of recent events, Chewie figured he could've used the much needed time off at a location other than the desert covered world of Tatooine. Afterall, the heat began to do strange things to people's minds after a short while. Regardless, he had faith that he was safe for the time being. It was now Chewie's time for a little relaxation.

Pushing the throttle forward, the small shuttle began to accelerate toward the lush, jungle-covered surface.

The shuttle touched down on a landing platform among the tree tops with a dull "thunk." Pressure hissed out in the form of steam from beneath the craft as its systems began to stabilize. Shortly after, the ramp lowered to the foilaged ground.

Chewbacca stepped out of the cramped space that was the main hold and sniffed the fresh, moist air. A light wind tugged at his pelt as the smells and sound of his home planet filtered into the rest of his senses. It was great to be back.

Across the way, a wood walkway connected the landing platform with the main tree house in this particular area. Hurrying over the walkway, Chewie spotted a small contingent of Wookiees varying in all shades of colors and sizes. The welcoming party.

Chewie woofed a greeting to the approaching group and they, in return, answered in kind. The group met and exchanged handshakes, Wookiee hugs, and slaps on the back. Chewbacca forgot he was seen as a hero to the people of his native world.

But before the group could catch up on old times, a distinct sound rushed over their heads, rustling the canopy of the nearby trees. Another shuttle. And it was not Alliance, Wookiee or Imperial.

A shadow crossed over the group as the shuttle descended into the treeline a short distance away. Cocking his head to the side and not wasting any time to answer questions, Chewie took off and sprint across the wooden walkway toward the area where the new arrival had set down.

As soon as David recieved clearence to land, he elogently piloted the shuttle into the atmosphere. He hoped that he wouldn't have to have too much dealings with the Wookies. Not that he was racist or anything, but they did intimidate him rather a lot.

Also, their language was very confusing to him. It had taken about ten seconds for him to take in what the Wookie over the comm said when he was recieving permission to land.

The soft beeping of the scanner interrupted his thoughts. Apparently another shuttle was landing nearby, and the scanners read that it was a Wookie. Chewbacca.

Locating a clearing nearby, David put the shuttle down slowly, and then lowered the ramp. Stepping down slowly, he looked around carefully.
