Case Report: CT-319506
Location: Bora IV
-3 Clone Trooper Regiments + Associated Transports
-2 ARC Squad
-Alpha ARC A-77 “Torch” and A-48 “Kasper”
-Jedi General Tia Dawne and Jedi Commander Jacinn Antares
Purpose: Codenamed Operation LIFELINE, forces under General Dawne were deployed to the surface of Bora IV with orders to track and destroy a Separatist processing facility responsible for supplying crucial material resources to nearby CIS-held shipyards. During the final phase of the assault, the issuance of the Order 66 directive resulted in the following recording:
(Recovered from Unit CT-319506 Helmet Recorder (heavily damaged))
Undamaged portions of the recording show a massive manufactory and attendant machinery. Scattered pieces of blasted battle droids and dead Clone Troopers can be seen in the area. Blaster fire and explosives can be heard in the background.
Supreme Chancellor Palpatine (Via Holo): “Execute Order 66.”
CT-319506: “It will be done, my lord.”
CT-319506 and 17 (Seventeen) Clone Troopers approach 4 (Four) figures speaking amonst each other: Identified as Jedi Master Dawne, Jedi Padawan Antares, Alpha Arc Troopers A-77 and A-48.
A-77: “…once the charges are set and primed, this whole damned place will be a few button-presses away from dust in the wind, sir.”
Master Dawne: “Good. Have our men begin pulling back, a controlled withdrawal covering the wounded. Don’t want our own soldiers in here when it starts coming down.”
Antares, A-77, and A-48 notice 319506’s approach.
Antares: “Have you found something, Captain?”
CT-319506: “Yes, sir.”
Master Dawne appears disturbed. Abruptly draws her lightsaber. The sound of numerous blaster rifles being brought to bear as the troopers open fire. Antares and A-77 dive for cover. Initial salvo either misses the primary target or is deflected. A-48 isn’t as lucky, the salvo catches him off guard and he’s torn apart by the torrent of fire.
2 (Two) troopers are downed by return blaster fire from A-77. 4 (Four) are incapacitated by deflected bolts from Master Dawne. Damaged super battle droid chassis careens into two other troopers (presumably force propelled by Antares). Third blaster salvo ignites Master Dawne’s cloak.
Master Dawne: “Jacinn, get out of here! GO!”
Several shots impact, burning through Master Dawne’s hand, shoulder, and knee. Target drops to the ground. Additional (unspecified number) of shots strike the body.
Clone Troopers begin laying down suppressive fire on the location of Antares and A-77, who have taken cover amidst the manufactory machinery. Occasional return fire and a falling Superconductor pipe down 3 (Three) troopers before targets are hemmed in.
Something lands on the ground near 315906’s squad. Camera looks at object roughly 20 (Twenty) meters off. Identified as demolition charge, remote activated.
Camera swivels backwards. A-48 has rolled over, and holds detonator control. Flips third switch.
(Salvaged Recording Ends)
Records indicate that roughly 2 (Two) Hours later, a CIS-Hyperdrive Equipped Emergency shuttle managed to take of from the facility’s attached cargo dock. During a flight, Republic Anti-Air weapon systems managed to inflict heavy damage, but failed to destroy the craft before it jumped. Given the state of the vessel during its jump, the relatively short range of such a small hyperdrive possible travel distance, and the lack of sight of the vessel in nearby viable exit systems, it is highly possible the strain of a hyperspace transition caused the ship to self-destruct.
