[Oh hey, it's that robot who argued with at least a dozen people about milk. This isn't fun and games this time around, as K-2 doesn't speak at first, and instead sends through the communicators a blue-tinted, looping projection that looks like it comes from his perspective.]

This is Bodhi Rook. He is missing. I understand now, that this can happen if the Porter "takes someone back." I also know that there is a chance he will be returned, but there is also a chance that this isn't the case, and something has happened to him.

[Very unlikely. But it isn't the same percentage he had given for Cassian- it's higher. Less than ten, still, but not four. Ever since Cassian's "duplicate" had shown up, Kay won't write off that imPorts could arrange for something to happen to Bodhi and make it look like a port out.]

...If anyone has any information on his whereabouts, it would be appreciated. He...

[Is important. Needs to be protected.]

Is a friend. Thank you.

[Private to Luke.]

I might be onto something for your lightsaber. I didn't really want to say anything until it was a sure thing, but - [He's excited and he wants to share it with him.]

I'm working on it.

How long can a person go without sleep before it starts having a negative effect on them? I mean, I do sleep. Sometimes. But it's definitely not a full eight hours.

[And his slumber is filled with horrifying nightmares.]

I don't like taking anything, but I'm not sure what else to do.

[The voice on the Network is deep, portentous, and elegant. Like a Shakespearean lead speaking from the bottom of a deep, dark cave.]

There are questions I have been pondering, my friends. I have been learning more regarding the history and future of the Galaxy I hail from. The same divisions and mistakes seeem to occur and reoccur in a repeating pattern. Lasting peace and stability appear to be rather... elusive, shall we say.

[Count Dooku sighs for a moment at the tragedy of it all.]

Corruption. Conflict. Ignorance. Incompetence. Injustice. These and so many other challenges are inevitably found in any universe, and they often persist regardless of how strongly they are confronted. Which is why I am curious to hear stories of what you have done to change things for the better, whether in your own world or here as an imPort. What problems did you face? What successes did you achieve? What failures have you had to endure?

[The Count's voice becomes notably lower on that last question, intoning it like a ritual. It's called the Dark Side after all, not the Optimist Side. He pauses for a moment before adding, in a lighter voice:]

I am not thinking of these things purely for abstract reasons, of course. As some of you are already aware, I am organizing an... alternative event outside this month's Swear-In, in Maurtia Falls. While the government offers us the usual frivolous bribes and distractions in exchange for accepting their agenda, imPorts will show what we can accomplish with our Swear-Out. This rally will be a festival for those who desire another path, made possible through imPort food, imPort security, imPort entertainment, imPort organization, and imPort vision for a better way.

I urge all of you to attend, and to let your voices be heard. I am available to answer any questions you may have about this gathering.

[OOC: If this is your first time tagging the Count, check out his permissions post! Plotting for the Swear-In/Swear-Out on the 15th is here.]

So, first of all: for all the new imPorts, hi. Welcome to America. Or welcome back to America if you were already there in your world. If you need clothes, I can get you started. [She's going to systematically infect these new imPorts with an appreciation for the '80s, so help her god.] Just swing by the Second Time Around Vintage Clothing Shoppe and ask for Veronica Sawyer. I'll even get you a discount.

Second, has anyone seen my housemate? He's not so tall, speaks Spanish pretty well, and he's from space. We're worried about him, he just up and disappeared one day.
[Jyn's already said her piece on the subject, so Veronica's bit on this is quick, and here the benefits of text come in handy—no one can hear her voice cracking with worry.]

Third, does it count as a birthday if you celebrated it maybe less than six months ago? Because I turn 18 in two weeks, but back home, before I came here in May, it was early November, so really this year I'd be 17 and a half on my birthday. Probably.

Keeping track of this is a lot harder than it should be.

OOC: This post is in relation to this and this

I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it, or if this will lead to anything, but - I'm afraid it's a bit of a Missing Persons ad. [Her voice is a bit unsteady in a way that suggests she's trying her hardest to maintain her composure. The apples of her cheeks are a bit flushed, the rims of her eyes a bit pinker than normal. She offers a very, very tight-lipped, twitching smile before her face goes sullen again.]

I'm wondering if anyone has seen the man in the image I'm about to show. He was last seen in De Chima yesterday morning and has not been seen or heard of since. His communicator was broken, though any message sent to him, regardless of format, bounces back as though there's - [She pauses, inhaling a short breath to steel herself to continue.]

As though there's no recipient to be found.

If you've any information, please let me know. Any assistance would - would be greatly appreciated.

[An image comes on the screen until the message goes black.]

please find attached updated history/timeline
and submit any corrections, notations, additions, redactions, +c




[Postscript only to Bodhi and Poe]

the idea of pooling our knowledge like this was my (probably idiotic) hope
to show how all conflicts are finite and history is pendular
ideally persuade not to bring same conflicts to this new place
doesn't seem to be working
but it's all happened
and i think those who helped it have a right to know

any input you'd like to give
i'd welcome very much

[ooc: apologies to Kylo Ren and Meetra Surik, about whom Cassian still just doesn't know!
This is about the right date for this to be posted: just before all the Artillery Ambush -scapades kick off]

[The communicator comes to life with a crackle, the video showing the clean inner brick wall of a Nonah townhouse, with a man sitting in front of it, staring down at his wrist with a frown. Though no longer wearing his bright orange flight suit, Poe Dameron does, at least have eternal sexy bedhead from which he cannot escape. Given that he's posting this up after sunset on a warm summer evening?

Totally not intentional.

No seriously, it's not.]


Alright. I think I got this. Yeah, thanks for the advice, buddy. Okay. [He smiles, widely, to the camera.]

So. Imports, huh? Might be obvious I'm new here, but I have a couple favours to ask. One, can someone here tell me where to get a decent laser razor? Because I'm getting a bit grown in, if you know what I mean.

Two, I'm looking for someone. Well, someones. Finn, Rey, if you're out there, I know you can find me. But I might need the rest of you to help me find the other.

[He moves, briefly off screen for a second, and then appears again, holding up a poorly drawn crayon drawing of a little round droid.]

This is my friend, BB-8. Last thing I knew, we were together, and I need my little buddy as much as he needs me. So if any of you have seen him, let me know. He uh - apparently he might look human, now, but - well. Just keep an eye out for him, will you? I've seen some lost posters around, so I uh - made up some for BB-8. If anyone wants one, let me know. I don't want to miss him.

Thanks. [The feed cuts out, but not before Poe offers a winning smile. Just in case the sexy bedhead didn't do it for you already.]

[The communicator is set up in such a way that the main viewpoint is pointed at a clean countertop with what looks like... several glasses of milk, except the milk is various shades of blue. Some are more white than blue, and some are more blue than white. Overall, it's a little weird.

It's a little bit weirder, when behind the row of milk, is a seven-foot robot, and then a human woman.
]

Hello. Because Tanith fails to acknowledge that I have perfect recollection of what milk it supposed to look like, we have to unfortunately ask you people.

[Jyn rolls her eyes, heavily, at Kay's comment, then glares up at him before deadpanning over to the camera again.]

He's malfunctioning, obviously, and doesn't know anything about anything.

I think that the perfect shade of bantha milk is this one.


[She holds up a glass somewhere in the middle of the blue spectrum.]

I drank a lot of it, fermented especially, growing up. I know it's the right color.

You know, I don't think they're going to really know what the proper color is, considering their milk is white, for some reason.

[So everyone- what do you think? The slightly more blue milk, or the slightly less blue milk? Both milks look equally gross unless you're, you know, used to that.]

[Private to Count Dooku.]

I am ready to move forward.

If you think you can handle me.


[/]

[Private to Luke Skywalker & Kylo Ren.]

I made a speeder. It doesn't hover far off of the ground, but with the right propulsion, it could. Now I just need to account for atmospheric changes or we will suffocate before we get very high.

The Force could get us off the ground if we really needed to go that route. I need to know what kind of control you have and how reliable it is.


[Family meeting?]

[/]

No one really thinks about it, but stars do die. I saw one once and I will never forget it.

[Ominous words, but that dead emptiness is always part of him.]

On that note, I do not plan to join them any time soon. If you come across...parts...of thugs, well, they had it coming, didn't they?

[The master copy that he'll update with their additions/corrections/notations stays for now between himself and Kay—who'd calculated the LY -> BBY equivalences. They'll distribute it after collating everyone else's. For now, he doesn't want anyone's writings influencing one another's, so they'll all get the same draft: Cassian's overview based on his eidetic recall of Alliance Archives and news sources, which he attempts to not personally embellish. Sent in individual sets—chronologically, sheesh; hard not to now—with personalized addresses:]

[to Revan:]

Sorry my knowledge pre-3245 so sparse. Alliance Intelligence education cause-centric. We're on a different scale now. Your insight will be valuable

[to Count Dooku, General Grievous:]

My Lord; General; please find attached my preliminary report. Updates to follow as I incorporate additional accounts, including your own?

[to Anakin Skywalker:]

Jedi Skywalker; I'm compiling a master timeline of our galaxy's history, as sourced from its representatives on this world. My goal is objectivity and balance. Your perspective would be valued.

[to Jyn Erso, K-2SO:]

J - hit me
K - dont hit me


[to Lando Calrissian, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo:]

interested what you know re: any time period not just your own

[to Armitage Hux:] [ooc: GAH Cas has failed to meet Ren!! Hux can show him copy if he wants to respond anyway?]

Not an express condition of our neutrality, sending as gesture of transparency. Interested in your input but won't hold breath.

[to all:]

If prefer not to respond here, can meet in person. /c_a

[ Not wanting anybody to see his face, Kylo switches the video off before pressing record. He takes a deep breath, not really satisfied with having to do this - he should be able to find out more about this place and find the people he is looking for without any assistance - but this place is large and this seems much more efficient. The technology is outdated, the small device similar to a datapad but much less useful and without a holo function. This must be something that pre-dates his parents, his grandparents, even. ]

This place, I'm not familiar with it. It's not where I'm supposed to be, not even in our galaxy, yet...

[ He pauses, taking a breath, giving himself a moment to gather his thoughts and center himself. There are Force users here, more than one, and he's certain of it. He'll search every city until he finds them, burn them down, kill them all until he finds what he's looking for. However, if anybody can give him any information, save him from traveling through each city until he finds them... ]

Tell me where Skywalker and Solo are. I know they're here, I can feel it.

I'm not going to waste time asking if there is a way off this backwater planet, it doesn't seem as if anyone has managed something so basic thus far. I don't understand why the natives of this planet seem to be proud of themselves as if this planet is something special despite being so primitive.

But it seems as I am stuck here for the foreseeable future so tell me what this planet has to offer, I'm curious to know.

[When he's done writing he switched to video but all that can be seen is a sheet with neatly written, very premise, Aurebesh symbols written on it-

'I'm sure some of you can read this. What is the last thing you recall before arriving here?'

No one seemed to know about Starkiller and the Hosnian System but he had to make sure and know who else was on this backwater planet. He held the paper there for a few moments before finally cutting the feed.]
