Oni Acrobat O.C.C.
The crowd roared with amazement. Never before had they seen such
a show here on the planet of New Hope. When it has been under Transgalatic
Empire control the, outsiders had not been welcomed. Now that they
had rebelled from their former Kreegor masters, the people of New Hope
welcomed the occasional preforming troop from the CCW. As Arstrovan the
Magnificent made his final bow from the spotlight he made is way back to
his temporary quarters in the small room that he had been assigned. He
usually expected more from his hosts when he traveled, but the Free Worlds
Council had more pressing matters to worry about then the luxury of
it's traveling entertainers. Even if he was invited by them as a moral
booster by the local government.
''It's about time!'' said the voice from behind rack of flamboyant
''You can't expect me not to leave on time with that kind of audience...
Those people are starving for entertainment.'' Arstrovan commented.
''What's more important? This war or your inflated pride Artsro?''
''That question doesn't even deserve an answer!'' Arstrovan shot back.
''Listen, we need to know what kind of support we can expect. We need
weapons and ships to win this war. I was told your troop were a good

''They are already here general... Have you looked at the ships we arrived

''We don't need rickety old transport shuttles that look ready to fall
apart.'' he rebuffed.
''But you did want a dozen Ghost Ships, with spares to repair their
ghost drives if need be, and that's what I brought, slightly redecorated of
course. Since partial payment has already been made, I expect the rest to
be done to our account promptly. Your government will make the generous
offer to replace some of our old shuttles with newer ones as a token of
your thanks for our charity tour of the FWC controlled planets. We will
leave a dozen of our worst shuttles ships on the last planet of our tour.
They also contain phase beam weapons and equipment. The best
in the Three Galaxies... Oh and general, if our ships are taken by
force before out tour is completed, they are set to self destruct. Any
The general smiled ''Just one... Can I get tickets for my family for your
next show? They seem to be sold out.''
