Mippur Squad scout the frozen wastelands of the desolate planet of Kha Cye, following the trail of a droid invasion force.
Kordo and his men try to prevent a possible Separatist assault to the neighboring system of Kha Sinden, where clone trooper armors and other Republic hardware are manufactured.
“Commander, I think we’ve found the droids we were looking for.”
The RTTs come to an abrupt halt for they find a tri-droid is blocking their path.
Suddenly, the metallic juggernaut places its photoreceptors on the Republic vessels and fires a grenade to the RTT carrying the troops from the base.
Commanders Kordo and Tabar order Mippur Squad to help the troops in the other RTT to evacuate the vehicle and find cover.
Kordo: Nought, contact the base; tell them we’ve found the Seps. Nought: Sorry, sir, but I’m afraid that is impossible. Our communications are being jammed by that droid, we can’t contact them. Kordo: Snipers, keep that droid busy. Blast, destroy it and Nought, try to get that signal through; we’ve got to get out of here before their reinforcements arrive.
After an intense barrage of fire the tri-droid is defeated.
The troops wait after the battle for Nought to make contact with the base.
Nought manages to contact the base and soon enough the Valiant Varactyl and a LAAT/c are at the scene, taking the Commanders and their men away from Separatist forces.
Back at the base Kordo, Dje and the lieutenant devise a plan to scout the nearby land and attack the droid base, cutting their power and incapacitating most of their forces.
Dje instructs Kordo to tell his men to gear up in scout armor, whilst he tries to contact the Harbinger of Peace.
Commander Tabar approaches the base’s sergeant and orders him to get in touch with the Venator-class Star Destroyer.
The sergeant has bad news. Their communications are being jammed again. And the radar has picked up Separatist heavy artillery and infantry heading towards the base.
How will Mippur Squad deal with the Separatist threat? Will they manage to fight their way off the planet? Find out more in the next episode; Episode 3: Brace for (a very cold) impact! that will be posted on the 1st May 2009.
Maybe not the best episode, i'll admit that, but for more of the Mippur Squad comic series continue watching my homepage for updates and look out for the rest of the Kha Cye saga coming out every Friday.
