The PCs were in The Hive, a large disreputable bar on Geonosis, touting for business. Chatting to a barmaid they learn their ship, The Last Archangel, may have a reputation and they learn the previous owner was a flash gambler and smuggler named Demarco.
Eventually they make contact with a Dressellian smuggler and his Gran associate, Callahan and Rees Yum, who are looking to shift a cargo of livestock, Shaak from Naboo.
A deal is struck whereby the PCs will take the Shaak to the planet Garqi to trade, Rees Yum will go with them. Garqi is an agricultural world, but a recent out break of a virus has decimated their livestock and they are in the business of importing. However, the Empire has levied a 150% import tax on all livestock. Shifting the Shaak for the required 150,000 should not be a problem, but without proper documentation all contact with authorities will have to be avoided.
The trip to Garqi is uneventful. While it only takes 12 hours the ship is already beginning to smell like cattle.
Arriving at Garqi the PCs see the Empire has a Carrack cruiser in orbit and two TIE fighters head in the direction of The Last Archangel. With some expert piloting the PCs lose the TIEs and make an undetected landing on Garqi near a small farming town.
One PC waits on the ship while the other go into town. There they meet Giles who then goes away to acquire some funds. As the PCs sit in the bar waiting four men, one is Giles, the leader a Duro, approach the PCs.
At The Last Archangel four heavies turn up. Here’s where the fun begins…
