Pilot Rescue

Summary
After learning Lt. Vancil was sold as a slave to an illegal mining operation, the team flies to the mines location to recon the site. Landing the Shriek-Hawk out of ite, they sneak up and spy on the base. The slaves are in a large fenced in enclosure, with some old military pre-fab buildings as shelters. A shallow stream flows through the enclosure and the slaves are working in the water, panning for something. Outside the fence are a pair of guard towers with heavy repeating blasters, some buildings, a flat landing pad with a large armed hyperdrive shuttle. There are also a pair of Tri-Tracker guns, one of which is sweeping the sky with a target acquisition scanner. The team decides to attack after dark. C'athall, Varek and Hack will take control of the active Tri-Tracker and use it to attack the other guns. Leelan and Zaonderh will fly over in the Shriek-Hawk and ion blast the shuttle to disable it.
Once the ground team sneaks in, Hack goes to work on the gun controls. C'athall throws a thermal detonator into the nearby guard tower. The blast destroys the tower, knocks down part of the enclosure fence and hits the slavers' garage, starting fires and causing secondary explosions. Varek takes control of the gun, Hack is in the network and sees the other turret is out of commission. Varek fires on the slavers' quarters and blows a hole through it. The Shriek-Hawk flies over and Zaonderh blasts the other guard tower, Leelan stuns the guards with the ion cannon. Varek goes to the shuttle and starts to bring it up. Some slavers come out of the burning building and Hack blasts them with a shot from the Tri-Tracker. Leelan brings the ship in and they get the slaves organized and loaded aboard the two ships. Zaonderh spots the missing rebel pilot and pulls him out of the crowd. Leelan and Lt. Vancil will fly the shuttle to a nearby world while Varek flies the Shriek-Hawk. With so many people aboard, life support will be strained and they can only make short jumps. Lt. Vancil knows an Alliance friendly world where they can deliver the rescued slaves. Leelan donates his cash to them and they ask if any want to join the Rebellion. Six of the former slaves volunteer and they take them back to their base, along with the slavers' ship.
Back at base on Tel III, they have recovered the remains of Lt.Vancil's Y-wing and the salvage that the team bought. With some help from the base technicians, they repair the skiff they bought and work on fire control and sensor jamming upgrades to the Shriek-Hawk.
