New Story Arc Starts Here!
- Agent Terex has sworn vengeance against Poe Dameron!
- But how does he always seem to know what Black Squadron is doing?
- Could there truly be a traitor in their midst?
While practicing hand-to-hand combat with mats, Dameron vented to BB-8 about the identity of the spy. Each member of the squadron was a close friend of Dameron, yet each also seemed suspect.
On the Carrion Spike, Terex is asked about their purpose being far out of First Order space, but Terex refused to answer and retreated to his quarters. He recalled his time as an stormtrooper in the Battle of Jakku.
When a Star Destroyer crashed into the ground, Terex's corporal ordered them to keep fighting, but Terex's companion Corlac refused and shot the corporal. After convincing Terex to join him in deserting, Corlac took off his armor and buried it. Terex did the same.
Back on the Carrion Spike, Terex gazed at his armor, now embellished and modified.
On D'Qar, Muva repaired Dameron's starfighter. Dameron allowed Muva to take it for a test flight. C-3PO interrupted, informing Dameron that one of their droid spies on Kaddak had sent word that it acquired much crucial intelligence on the First Order, including the location of Supreme Leader Snoke. However, the transmission ended before the information could be sent, and Dameron was to take C-3PO and another Black Squadron pilot to uncover the truth. However, Dameron still did not know who the traitor was.
Captain Phasma asked for a report from Terex on his actions, but he disabled all communications, weapons, and engines on the Carrion Spike.
Earlier on Jakku, Corlac and Terex built an ugly from the cockpit of an AT-AT, the engines of an U-wing, and the wings of a TIE Interceptor. Terex insisted on regrouping with the Empire, but Corlac wanted to go to the Outer Rim first. Terex went to get one last thing before they left.
Looking at the smuggling freighter they were going to fly to Kaddak in, Dameron warned it would not be very helpful in getting out of trouble.
On the Carrion Spike, Terex emerged from his quarters in his old armor, which was the thing he had retrieved from Jakku before he left.
Muva thanked Dameron for allowing him on the mission, but Dameron warned that Kaddak was a completely lawless planet.
The Carrion Spike landed on Kaddak, where Terex left the ship and the crew behind as he went out to find something important that he had lost. In the past, Kaddak was also the planet that Corlac and Terex flew to, and now Dameron arrived as well.
