After inspecting it for a moment, Anjali murmurs to herself, "This looks disturbingly familiar." Then a bit louder for others to hear, "I can get this out, but it would safer with proper medical equipment. We're going to have to let those bastards go for now, but if this thing is a tracking device, we're going to need to keep a sharp eye out for anyone following us."

BA nods, and asks if there's anything he can help with at the moment.
Give me about 5 minutes after a post, I'll probably edit it a bit before it is finalized.

Currently working weird/long hours, so if I go dark for a few days thats probably what happened.

"Help these young ladies to the speeder (again), I think." They are still weakened from the trauma. "Keep a close eye on that monitor, too.
We wouldn't want to lose 'em."

"Let's get back to the ship and rest. That will give us time to regroup and plan our next steps. Caspo and I can take a closer look at removing those implants, too.

BA helps everyone into the speeder. "Let's get patched up, and then head on over and take those bastards out."

On their way out in the speeder, Anjali asks the others, "So who was that asshole, and what was he doing to you?"

"Christophsis.... Doctor Christophsis, they call him. Not his REAL name, I don't think. I think that is just where he's from." replies Pria. "He implants these 'bugs' in us (as she sweeps back her long, dark hair to reveal the back of her neck) and then harvests the information somehow. He's VERY cold. Passionate about his 'work', but cares little for living beings like us." she says despondently.

"THIS!" replies one of them. One of the captives pulls their long hair to the side, revealing the back of her neck. She points to a small tattoo on the back of her neck. Looking ever-more-closely, and with some enhanced lighting, one can notice a tiny stitch within the tattoo and a small, capsule-like lump underneath. The two others follow and do the same.

"There is some kind of electronic device they implant in our necks to control us. If we disregard an order, then they can cause debilitating pain, ....and even death!"

"WHY???? What do they want with you? All of this to have people serve drinks??? " asks Monty incredulously. "I don't get it."

"Oh! Serving drinks? That's just our 'cover' to be around those VIPs!! You didn't notice what that club was? Who spends time there? These.....people..... They have us spying for them. They're told we work for Manservices, Corp, but I don't think that is their real company name. I don't know who they really are. They keep us here. They keep us fed and clothed. They retrieve information from these devices and anything we can retrieve ourselves gets us simple pleasures, like extra shares of food and drink."

"Can you DO SOMETHING about these???"
Pria says, pointing at the insertion point. "PLEASE tell me you can!!"

"So he's experimentin' on you all? He do anythin' else to ya during all this?"

BA keeps an eye on the scanner while they talk. "We should all probably rest up? You ain't lookin' so good Anjali."

"Yeah, I definitely need to rest.", she replies to BA. Turning back to the captives, "how did you come to be under Christophisis' control? Do you have a home?" Anjali feels a lot of pity for these poor people, and a swelling hatred for this "doctor".

"This galaxy can be cruel to orphans and ones like them. I never really had a home and lived on the street for a time. This man, Zarbos, he took me under his wing. Fed me, gave me a place to stay, gave me work to do. It wasn't easy, but it was better than starving. When I was still young, a man approached Zarbos one day. They exchanged credits and I was sent off with him. Zarbos didn't even look back. It was like 'That was the plan' the whole time, to sell off us kids."

The two Twi'leks nod along with this part of the story. "The same with us," they say. "As long as we can remember, we've been owned by someone else."

Pria continues."From there, this new man, Larn, took us to 'the doctor'. He said we were going to 'do work' for him. Gather information. Works real jobs. They're spies. Some kind of spying they're having us do."

"But I see there is an entire universe out there. I decided, along with Sienn and Numa, that we were going to look for opportunities to get out! I know that these "implants" are there to prevent that, but I hope there is something you can do about them. They said the A-Squad can solve all types of problems, so I took a chance."

"We're going to do our best to get those implants removed. I'm not in very good condition to do it right away, unfortunately, but as soon as I recover, that's my first priority."

"Do you have any idea of what you'll do next, once you're free? Do you have options? The galaxy is large and full of opportunities, yes, but also full of pitfalls. Without means, I'm concerned that you'd fall prey to yet another form of enslavement."

"ANYTHING is better than being slaves! Who would go through the trouble of putting these computer chips in slaves to spy on military types??? I mean, the Great Galactic War has been over for over a year. What's the point?"

"The Sith, perhaps," Anjali glowers. "Or perhaps organized crime, hoping to exploit opportunities for blackmail or easy profit." Anjali falls silent a minute, reflecting. "There's a lot of damage that could be done, whether it's for someone's personal gain, or someone else's, or the Republic's, disadvantage. The war 'ended' over a year ago, but not favorably for the Republic."

BA sits listening.

Then he pipes up, "I think our first task, afta helping them out obviously, is ta figure out who these guys are spyin' for."
