Star Wars - Jedi and Mandalorian - Episode 7 - I use my hands

The ship is released back into space. Kailess verifies that the backdoor responds and the ship is sitting there. The Stellar Wave lands back on Excarga to refuel and prep to investigate the base of operations of the pirates. Research indicates that the system the pirates operate from has a great deal of trade traffic: legitimate and illegitimate. The system is named Circumtore.

The party attempts to secure cargo to carry to get picked up so they can track where the cargo goes. Trisha acquires tracer equipment. The Stellar Wave arrives in Circumtor and is put into a parking orbit waiting for a landing bay. While waiting for a landing bay Kailess is notified that the pirate vessel is on it's way.

They deliver the cargo (earning 10k credits per person). Kailess looks at a secure terminal and gets information about the business. The ship leaves the space dock and assumes a parking orbit until the pirate ship arrives. It is given immediate access to docking (which the party is aware of due to Kailess' hacking). He orders some cargo that is being unloaded to be sent to the party.

The Stellar Wave re-docks and receives the shipment (pizza boxes? Really) Kailess, Trysha, and Ossa decide to board the pirate ship. Kailess trivially, effortlessly boards the ship from the outside (rolled a 42 - he needed a 4) and manages to clear the way for Ossa and Trysha to board.

Kailess programs a lockdown and the party heads to the bridge. The trio quickly subdue the three people on the bridge and start to question them. The captain indicates that he is a free agent who carries cargo between systems. Trysha senses his mind has been touched via the force before. Trysha examines the memory shield and determines that it was placed some years ago, tightly woven, and almost imperceptibly. If he is questioned in the correct manner it could be determined that tampering had occurred. A very skillful force user on the level of a Jedi Master likely implanted the memory alteration but with a faint dark side taint.

They undock, meet up with the Stellar Wave and start heading back to Republic space. The group examines the ship for equipment and information. One of the pieces of information unearthed was that a datapad was unloaded and sent to the Malachor system.

The group heads back to Bothuwai. Trysha notifies the Republic forces that they are bringing prisoners.

They land at Bothuwai. Kailess and Slyk stay in orbit on the Stellar Wave. Trysha turns the ship over and reports to the Republic and a Jedi Council representative. Trysha reports her findings. The Council rep contacts the council which Trysha and Kailess overhear his report. He orders that two Jedi investigate the Malachor system.
