Machines of War
The Star Wanderer and its crew have travelled across the Dominus Sector to the isolated world of Isleis. After battling strange alien creatures, and weathering vicious ionisation storms, the crew land at their destination of MINING BASE 427.
Before long they find themselves trapped in the depths of the processing plant where they find more than they bargained for when attacked by antiquated battle droids controlled by an unknown force.
Accompanied by their new associate, the smuggler JOCK McCRACKEN, and using little more than their wits, the crew venture further into the heart of the complex in search of what is controlling the droids. What they find however, may change their fates forever....

The deepness of space. The camera pans down to a blue grey planet. Flashes of blue green lightning scatter about the surface, a turbulent dust storm clearly covering most of the planet. Suddenly an Imperial Sentinel Class Shuttle flies overhead, making its way towards the planet.

An Imperial Pilot and Co-pilot monitor their workstation. An Imperial Captain in combat gear approaches the controls. Troopers can be seen behind the Captain readying weapons and equipment.
|Captain Northos:||What do we have Lieutenant?|
|Imperial Pilot:||Nothing but static sir. No comm chatter. No beacons. Nothing.|
|Captain Northos:||This is an interesting turn of events.|
|Imperial Pilot:||Yes it is sir. Should I log an incident with command?|
|Captain Northos:||Negative Lieutenant. We have strict orders do we not? We were never here remember?|
|Imperial Pilot:||Roger that sir, but with no communication from the surface, how should we proceed?|
|Captain Northos:||Well Lieutenant, our order’s haven’t changed, and I don’t like going back to the General empty handed. Unless you’d like to turn tail, and explain that to him?|
|Imperial Pilot:||No sir. Commencing atmospheric entry procedure.|
|Captain Northos:||Good choice Lieutenant. Now lets bag us what those smuggler scum couldn’t, and get ourselves that missing cargo.|

The ship flies past the camera, as the camera tracks the vessel entering the planet’s atmosphere.
