Captain Jallus frowned as she followed the red blip as it tracked across the screen before the technician.
Captain Jallus: "You're sure?"
Technician: "Certain, Captain. It could be a blip on one of the sensors I guess, been having some unusual solar activity recently."
Captain Jallus: "Keep an eye on it."
Jallus flinched as a dark shadow suddenly fell across her. She turned to see Darth Ambria, head of the Sith Academy.
Darth Ambria: "What is it, Captain?"
Captain Jallus: "Lord Ambria! We have noticed a small blip on one of our sensors."
Ambria watched as the blip fell to the ground, a mile or so away from the Sith Academy.
Darth Ambria: "Have Captain Garant take a squad to the landing pad to see what he can find out."
Captain Jallus: "Yes, My Lord."
Captain Garant sighed as he trudged out onto the snow-covered landing pad of the Sith Academy, he really hated this place.
Stormtrooper: "Sir, scans are picking up a life form at the end of the pad."
Muttering to himself, Garant marched his squad over to where a tall figure stood looking out across the frozen wasteland of Alzoc III.
Captain Garant: "You there! Hands up! Turn around slowly and identify yourself or we will shoot you on sight!"
The Kaminoan turned slowly around, a small smile touching his face as he ignited his lightsaber.
Yurren Relm: "Oh, that wont be necessary."
Figures suddenly began leaping onto the platform, igniting their own blades and advancing on the Imperials.
Darth Ambria's eyes widened in fear as he watched the Jedi cut their way through the landing pad towards the Academy.
Darth Ambria: "Put the Academy on alert! Have Lords Karit and Fewt wake the acolytes and prepare them for battle!"
Ambria stalked over to the door and jabbed his thumb at the two troopers.
Darth Ambria: "You two, with me!"
The main hall of the Sith Temple was filled with the shouts and cries of battle as the Jedi rushed the surprised Imperials.
Jedi Knight Pol Trem grinned fiercly as he easily deflected a flurry of bolts back into the chests of the two snipers who had fired them.
Pol Trem: "Yeah! The Jedi are back you nerf-herders!"
A purple lightsaber suddenly flashed across Pol's vision and he gunted as the blade bit through his skin and ended his life.
Lord Fewt, one of the two Lords serving under Darth Ambria, strode forwards his balde slicing through the air as he cut down another Jedi.
Lord Fewt: "The Sith have been here all along Jedi! Unlike you, we are not out of practice!"
Fewt suddenly gasped as a green lightsaber passed easily through his neck, severing his head.
Zonar Wave: "That remains to be seen."
On the other side of the room, Ames was engaged in a fierce duel with Lord Karit. In the corner of his eye, he saw another Sith appear at the top of the stairs. Even from this distance, Ames could sense that he was the Sith in cvommand of the Academy.
Ames Victur: "Yurren!"
Yurren Relm: "I see him, Ames!"
The Sith leapt from the stairway and landed before Yurren, cutting down a Jedi to his side before unleashing a storm of lightning that through Yurren out of the window.
Lord Karit cackled in delight as his balde swirled against Ames'.
Lord Karit: "Pathetic! Your strongest Master can't stand against the might of Darth Ambria! What hope do you have Jedi?"
Ames dodged Karit's attack and speared him with his lightsaber.
Ames Victur: "Well, more than you do it would appear."
Outside the Academy, Yurren grunted as he hit the tightly packed snow below him. Darth Ambria laughed softly as he landed before the Grand Master.
Darth Ambria: "You fool Jedi. Did you really think you could come in and take our Academy? We are Sith! The strongest of all! We crushed you once, we can do it again!"
Yurren pushed himself to his feet and activated his lightsaber.
Yurren Relm: "I have seen far more than you could imagine, Ambria! And I have killed more powerful Sith than you!"
Yurren leapt forward and his blade clashed against Ambria's taking the SIth by surprise and forcing him to retreat several paces.
Ambria gritted his teeth as he jumped away from the Kaminoan's attacks, barely avoiding the sting of Yurren's lightsaber as he flipped back.
But as soon as he landed, Yurren's blade was back in Ambria's face. Sweat trickled down the Sith Lord's neck as he struggled to hold the Jedi Master at bay.
Suddenly, the ground below Ambria came to life as great explosions sent snow flying all around him. Yurren stood calmly before the Sith Lord, summoning the Force to bury Ambria beneath the icy drifts.
Darth Ambria snarled as he summoned the Dark Side and cast the snow aside.
Darth Ambria: "No! I will not fall! I am Sith!"
Ambria charged at Yurren but the Jedi Master neatly side stepped the attack and brought his blade down upon Ambria's back.
Yurren sighed as Darth Ambria collapsed to the floor and fell still.
Yurren Relm: "No. You are a fool."
Yurren made his way slowly back up to the Sith Academy. He smiled when he saw several of his friends gathered in the main hall.
Ames Victur: "Yurren! We were getting worried!"
Yurren Relm: "I'm fine, thank you Ames."
The Jedi glanced over the main hall, taking in the scene of death before them.
Rolyun Soru: "Such a waste of life."
Ames Victur: "You'd best get used to it, Rolyun. The war has begun."
Yurren nodded gravely.
Yurren Relm: "Indeed. Secure the control room. I think its time I had a chat with the Emperor."
