“Anything Yet?” questioned Lana.
T-7 responded with an aggravated sounding series of bleeps.
“It’s ok, we’ll find him.” Lana continued “He’s probably sipping a caf right now, biding his time till we find him.”
Still unsettled T-7 went about his work with an impatient whir coming from his servos.
They were looking for Serrocco, it had been over a year now since he had all but vanished. Many of the other crew had eventually went on about their lives, but T-7 wouldn’t give up, nor would Lana. Lana having the resources for such a search made it an obvious fit for them to team up.
Not really knowing where to look, let alone start to look, the two of them had dove into the depths of the holo-net, hoping for a bite, a clue, a bread crumb of some sort. It had been a long, arduous job so far, not yielding much for results. Today though was different, at least according to Lana.
“Maybe I’m wrong T-7, maybe I’m just tired and my mind is playing tricks on me.” Lana spouted.
T-7 responded with a positive bloop. Then doing his little side to side jig, rocking back and forth excitedly.
“Wait…..have you found something? A lead?”
Transferred to the monitor she was using, T-7 had found something alright, but it didn’t really mean anything to Lana.
“It’s a map, I don’t get it… Why are you showing me this?”
T-7 bleeping and blooping excitedly, brought up some additional information to the attention of Lana.
The monitor shifted to file information and there it was, it wasn’t much, but it could be a clue. The map had showed a variety of planets, moons and hyperspace routes, all meaningless as Lana hadn’t recognized any of them. T-7 though had noticed that nothing of this piece of the overall galaxy map existed prior to his master’s disappearance. It wasn’t much, but it was something.
“Well T-7, funny we didn’t see this before, I think it’s time we take a trip. At the very least maybe we can get a clue as to where the Eternal Fleet is based.”
Uploading the map to her datapad, they made their way to the ship, not knowing that one of those new planets they would eventually visit was Zakuul where there friend was being kept. Closer to the end they were, but still the search would last a long while.
