This is x-actly what I was hoping for!

I am super x-cited to be in round three! I will x-tract my x-aggerated ideas from my head to be x-amined! I might x-cavate some x-amples before setting out on my x-pedition. I hope to x-cel and x-ceed my own x-pectations! I would like to x-tend my good wishes to my x-ceptionally talented competition, and look forward to the x-cess of x-cerpts that might come from this x-change. I think I'd better x-it before I get too x-cited and there's an x-cuse to x-communicate me from this x-perience!

X-celsior!!!

Pun... overload... how long have you been waiting to crack out all of those? ;)

Anyways, good luck, dodge. Go easy on this poor builder!

Backstory...

The Xi’tarrin fighter, known for its stealth and speed, was originally designed by the monks of the B’omarr order.

Though the B’omarr distanced themselves from both feeling and emotion, they felt it necessary to create a craft to protect the regions where the brains of the highest level of monks resided. These fighters would be piloted by introductory level monks as a way of serving the more enlightened members. This practiced was abandoned however, when the religion changed its base of operations to Tatooine 700 years BBY. This would be a mistake in the end, as their sanctuary was invaded many times by rouges and bandits and, most notably, by Jabba Desilijic Tiure.

The design, traded as part of the original passage to Tatoonie, was later sold to Kuat Drave Yards. This was held for many centuries, until 50 years BBY a half dozen prototypes were constructed at the Kuat Drives research shipyards near Gyndine, but never brought to full production due to the number of Imperial contracts which required fulfillment.

The ships remained in storage until 10 years BBY, one was stolen by a Twi’lek slave who was escaping her life on Gyndine. The ensuing chase through the research facility destroyed the remaining five Xi’tarrin fighters before the slave left the system for good. On the way home to Ryloth along the Coreliian Run, the ship was spotted by the authorities. The Twi’lek outran them and set down on Drall, abandoning the vehicle.

It was there that Adumson Drallex found the ship and took it for his own. When approached by the local authorities about the vessel, Adumson used the court case of Viallass v. Terminus about possession rights during civil peacetime.
Using his own concoction of hypermatter and Peragian fuel, Adumson uses the Xi’tarrin fighter only when it is required. Otherwise he allows it to exist peacefully as the B’omarr would have like it.

Hah! I can totally preempt that challenge!

Flight Chief: Commander... a word!
Purple Squadron Leader: *Sigh* what is it chief? I've got a... briefing... to get to
Flight Chief: A briefing named Carla?
Purple Squadron Leader: What do you want chief?
Flight Chief: I want Velasria's head and neck on a plate.
Purple Squadron Leader: Can't help you there, I'm already three pilots short. I'm sure he'll be dead within another mission or two, the way he flies. How about I send you some of the remains then?
Flight Chief: Did you see what he did with my b-Wing?
Purple Squadron Leader: You mean fly it into a battle with such prowess and majesty that the enemy didn't even bother to show up?
Flight Chief: He sold it to a Ilthorian merchant for three cases of Alderaan wine.
Purple Squadron Leader: Sounds like a great investment... not like they're making any more, what with Alderaan having been turned to kitty litter and all.
Flight Chief: We don't have any ships to spare! I'm not so much as giving your squadron a stick of gum until you-
Purple Squadron Leader: We already replaced the ship, Garret said that he has an X-Wing to back it up
Flight Chief: What? How is that possible, all of the X-Wings ever produced and stolen by the rebellion are accounted for.
Purple Squadron Leader: Well, I didn't say it was one of the X-Wings, it's an X-Wing. Kind of the same way that Boba Fett is the worlds deadliest Bounty Hunter, even though he's never so much as killed a Womp Rat.


Obligatory Letter-shape shot (Well, there's a letter shape in there somewhere)

And of course, the pilot in the cockpit!

Same to you. Good luck in the upcoming rounds. I can now go back to a life of only talking about building, and ditch this crazy deadline thing!
