Two days following the events of Ch. 6 The liberation of New Cov continues as Republic forces push the Droid armies back to their landing zone, however they face a final battle before victory is secured...
About this creation
(*Aboard Separatist Command Ship Devastator in orbit above Fondor*)
Battle Droid-Sir we have and incoming transmission from General Duxos on New Cov.
Count Dooku-Very well patch him through.
(Dooku walkes over to a holotable displaying the battle being fought on the planet below)
(There is a flash as the table transforms to reveal the form of General Duxos)
Dooku-General, this is Count Dooku what is your situation?
Duxos-Well, Count at the moment we haven't much of a situation at all. Whatever "surprise" you had for the Jedi it didn't work. We've been pushed back to our landing zone and I'm preparing to evacuate the planet, this invasion is over.
Dooku-I will remind you general that we had more than one reason for invading New Cov, it's strategic importance is not important, inflict all the casualties you can and make sure you do not leave without the package I sent for, Dooku out.
(Below the Separatist landing zone)
Ban-Commander what's our situation!
Deverts-Sir we're not getting anywhere! The Seps' position is too good, we've already lost four men trying to scale this cliff! It can't be done sir!
Ban-Then get your troops down here! Alinta, we'll have to scale the cliff and take out those droids before the clones can come up! Tell your apprentice and let's go!
(Another clone is blasted by the anti-infantry gun from the Separatist defenders)
(Summoning the force Alinta and Ban leap up the cliffside evading the droid fire as they do)
(They land at the and flash their blades to life as the Duxos and his guards surround them)
Duxos-Your fools! Did you really think I wouldn't prepare for you Jedi? I knew you couldn't stand to send clone after clone to their death! And now I've got you right where I want you!
Alinta-You can't win! Your army had been destroyed! Surrender now and you will not be harmed!
Kuellos-Ha! A true Mandalorian would never surrender to a Jedi! Can I kill them now general?
Duxos-Yes, Kuellos kill the Jedi! Droids open fire!
(Kuellos takes to the air and fires at Alinta as Ban-Kazi deflects a blast at a commando droid)
(Kuellos flys around Alinta firing again as Ban destroys the last commando droid)
Kuellos-Avoid and evade Jedi! Come on, I thought you Jedi were supposed to be powerful?
Alinta-And I thought you Mandalorians were supposed to be fearless? Why don't you come over here and fight face to face!
Kuellos-Why you little...!!!
(Enraged Kuellos lands behind Alinta and fires at her, who sidesteps the blast just in time)
(Kuellos prepares to take off again as Alinta slices his jet pack)
Alina-Leaving so soon?
(Damaged, the jet pack flies out of control into the sky with Kuellos still attached, before exploding killing Kuellos)
(Meanwhile Karlo engages the droids as Duxos sneaks behind Ban-Kazi)
Karlo-Look our Master!
(Kuellos jabs his electrostaff into Ban-Kazi's back and as he turns around hits him again in the chest)
(His body searing from the electric voltage running through him Ban falls onto one knee before Duxos)
Duxos-Look at you Jedi! Kneeling before me! Is this truly how the great Master Ban-Kazi will die, by a Separatist General? You send all your men to save this puny world and yet you can't save yourself...
Karlo-Hey, turn around!
(Duxos turns only to see Karlo's blade pointed squarely at his chest)
Duxos-Who dares....Ah, the padawan well done boy you've almost done it.
Karlo-What do you mean?
(Karlo looks on as a Separatist landing craft comes down opposite him and super battle droids engage his master)
Duxos-Oh what to do? Save your master or capture the general?
(Before he can react Duxos slams his electrostaff into Karlo's blade forcing it to the ground)
Duxos-Indesiveness, not a good quality boy!
(Duxos spins around and narrowly avoids a force blast from the still weary Ban-Kazi)
(Duxos retreats back onto the shuttle)
Duxos-Goodbye Jedi! Perhaps next time we meet the odds will be more in my favor! Ha!Ha!Ha!
(The craft takes off as the clones finally arrive)
Deverts-Alright men! Ready! Aim! Fire!
Ban-Trooper where what kept you?
Deverts-A counter attack sir. The remaining droids poured out the jungle at us. We managed to stop them though, and arrive just in time it seems.
Alinta-Well at least this ordeal is finally over, though I can't help wondering why the Separatists would spend so much time on this little planet?
Ban-Why do the Separatists do anything? They always seem to lose anyway.
Deverts-Sir, we have also received our orders to rejoin the fleet and to assist in the Battle of Fondor.
Ban-You'll have to go without us Commander, see if you can get Gulio Marcus away from the Temple and Master Boris-last I heard he was still on Tatooine. I promised these two an explanation and they'll get it.
Deverts-Very well sir.
Ban-Good, come on you two we're going to Dantooine.
