Yuuzhan Vong Biots “Hatch” Outside of Mos Espa

August 28, 2011

Hearing of further Yuuzhan Vong activity, reporter Rakiko Lowtide braved the heat and sand of Tatooine to investigate what was going on in the city of Mos Espa.

The exploding mechanical garage that left several injured.

Mos Espa, Tatooine: Reports of the biots hatching even further on Mos Espa caught our attention and we headed to the arid, extremely hot system. From the moment of landing it was clear that something at happened as the focus of activity was around and inside the medical center. Several wounded were being treated by medics from all around who had come to Tatooine to help against the Yuuzhan Vong, including Jedi Xan Qenadius, Shan from Nar Shaddaa, and the Togruta, Nasaji Oba. The wounded seemed to be suffering from several different types of injuries, ranging from burns, cuts, bruises, pierces, broken bones, and others. Finally reaching the main healers it was clear something major had happened as even the Baron Kabriel Le’Sanit was being treated.

While Shan and Xan finished their treatment of a Zabrak, they explained what had transpired. Earlier the egg like objects, or biots,  the Yuuzhan Vong had left behind on Mos Espa and had begun hatching previous by sprouting tentacles, further continues their hatching.The process of one nearby the major mechanical garage had set off an explosion trapping those inside in a fiery tomb. In an attempt to rescue one of the victims, Kabriel inhaled dangerous fumes and he along with the one he saved, a Togruta by the name of Sellovet, we transported to the local medical facility where they joined others such as a Zabrak who had been attacked by the tentacle protruding from the hatching biots. Fearing a poison similar to the one the Yuuzhan Vong had utilized before, and antidote was administered in hopes it would be effective.

Arriving also to help in the research of the downed mother-ship, Magister Salene Lusch and Master Flint Mokeev, had also begun helping to the locals. To make sure a valid antidote was formed the pair went out to obtain samples from one of the biots. Flint managed to sever the the tip of one of the tentacles, however, during the operation, another tentacle hit Magister Salene which was brought back to the medical facility for treatment. After Shan and Xan administered first aid, and the antidote, an anomaly was spotted in her blood system during the tests. The details of yet were not released, though Shan seemed intrigued of the results and luckily the Magister’s life did not seem to be in peril. GNN wishes for her speedy recovery.

Mos Espa certainly has become the center of Yuuzhan Vong activity, and several others arrived to help with the situation such as Captain Scarlet of the Renegade Fleet, the armada led by Admiral Vice who had made a deal with the Hutts for his navy to be utilized by then. The Captain told that her ship was at ready to assist Tatooine. With so many part of the allied forces, its hard to understand why the Yuuzhan Vong still gravitate to the area or what they are hoping for. Hopefully soon more answers will emerge.

Search Party preparing to to seek answers in the desert.

Update: GNN reporters followed Shan and the Zonamans, Salene Lusch and Flint Mokeev into the desert to search for clues on biots the Magister saw during her captivity and which may be a key to cure the infections that have been attributed to Yuuzhan Vong. Upon arriving to the crash site of the Yuuzhan mother ship, where several of the conflicts over Tatooine have occurred it was found to have been turned into a pile of slag from what appeared to be some sort of bombardment. The exact reasons are unknown at this time as to who or why the crashed ship was destroyed in such a fashion, possibly someone wishing to stop the spread of any disease and also to make the site uninteresting to future Yuuzhan Vong patrols.

Remains of the Yuuzhan Vong ship, having been turned into slag.

Nothing could be gathered from the remains, as the outside was just a heap of indistinguishable material and the inside describe as a soup, though it was hazardous to be in without an EVO-suit. The search party then returned back to the medical facility in Mos Espa where further tests were performed and samples being taken from Magister Salene. The researchers Shan and Morrigan seemed hopeful they will found something. However, they would wish to speak to the Hutt Council if they had any public announcement to make. Stay Tuned!

    I, Mirshe Sol’yc Socarras, brought a small fleet of ships belonging to the Socarras clan, to destroy that ship, it was Mandalorians who bombarded the Yuuzhan Vong ship, per our Mand’alor’s orders to eradicate all signs of Yuuzhan Vong in our galaxy.

    Oya Manda!

    Hello, Rakiko. A correction needs to be in order. Sellovet is a teenaged human girl who claimed she was aided by Kabriel LeSanit. Tollic is the Togruta pictured in the bacta tank. She walked into the medical facility and passed out from a mild concussion.

    Now that half the galaxy is a lovely pile of rubble. Hopefully some one is going to set about rebuilding it. So how though, I’m jaded enough to believe there will be less people willing to go about doing that. Life is funny like that.
