<Impound Yard>

Using those built in senses her race carried, Visas weaved her way through the hangar virtually defying logic for someone to see this woman with the covered face, blind to the visual world, not bang her head on some protruding part of a ship or other unseen object that might have interfered with her progress. With those senses guiding her to the nearest life force, after traversing up several flights of stairs she was soon making her way along the platform to bring her outside the Control Tower door. Stopping for a mere moment, listening to some idle chatter within, two men complaining about their wives. Typical, she thought. They would be distracted for the time being, either facing one another or looking outside into the Yard; either way it didn't matter.

The only thing right now that could block her entry, was if there was by the worst chance a biometric sensor to open the door. Not that it'd hold her for too long, Visas didn't need that kind of delay, not now. Quickly running her gloved hand around the door frame, then either side of it, she found what she was looking for as obviously Calipsa hadn't changed in several thousand years, they were still as negligent as ever regarding security, thinking no one would dare to challenge them.

A small pad to the left side of the door only needed pressing for her to open it, it did so with a hiss of air. That action in itself alerted the two controllers forcing them both to swing around to see who it was invading their domain. Visas had already probed their minds to test if they were resistant in any way to her 'charms', finding them as weak as new born babes. Before either man could speak, she pressed upon them, knowing her influence for now was rather flimsy, the pair of them might well recover as soon as she left. "The light freighter Last Starshine needs clearance to depart, see to it please."

The look on the faces of both control men was that of confusion, if only for an instant. Somehow she had managed to convince them she was something else, a high lady of the House. Visas didn't have a lot of time, she knew the moment they gave that clearance, she'd have to either knock them out or worse.

"Yes my lady, immediately." The older of two told her, then transmitting the departure signal to the Starhsine, with a holographic message informing Tobias in the ship. When that time came he made his reply, that was the moment she 'had' to leave.

<Holding Facility>

"Oh now that's not the spirit, kid. That's just quitter talk." Zhug commented, liberating himself an E-5C repeating blaster rifle just in case.

"Can we just get going already? We likely have several dozen guards on their way." Sabe demanded.

"Well then by all means, lady. Sheesh." Zhug replied. Sabe rolled her eyes and took the lead to the turbolifts, hitting the call button to summon one to them. She then waited rather impatiently by it once it arrived for everyone else to board. Zhug brought up the rear for the moment, leaving Myn to stay close to Laya.

"Captain, the Nomad is on its way to you now. But it wasn't exactly unnoticed..." Tobias said over the comms.

"She can handle it. Just get the other ship out of here now." Zhug said, "I hope you two know how to operate guns on a ship, we're going to have a bumpy ride out of here."

<Impound Yard>

As soon as he got the all clear, Tobias acknowledged it, and the Last Starshine lifted off. But at the same time, so did the Astral Nomad, as if the two ships were bound together through some unseen link.

The controllers were now confused and trying to figure out what to do, but their confusion not only gave Visas an escape opportunity, it meant that the two ships were free to go.

"The Nomad will wait for you by the roof, and then home in on the Cap'n. Just get on board and hang on. I'll see you back at the barn." Tobias said over the commlink. The Last Starshine made its way up into the traffic, getting lost in the buzz of the skies while the Astral Nomad dutifully waited with the ramp down for Visas on the roof, hovering just low enough for her to board quickly.
