02:00-Depths of Space-En Route to ZofiaThe Captain is awoken with a start, the alarm is going off. The Captain rushes to his station and looks at the lieutenant, "Report?""Sir, the gunner Leonard Vasilo was found dead at his station, it appears he died from a blow to the head, his death appears to be instant.""Hmmm...pherhaps Iago was right after all."
07:00-Depths of Space-En Route to ZofiaThe Captain sits at his station as the lieutenant walks up to give report. "Sir, the cook is dead, he died at his station, he was stabbed, there appears to have been a struggle before he died, there are multiple instances of missed blaster shots, I have not told the crew however to keep up moral and to prevent a descent into madness."The Captain puts his head in his hands, this mission was given to him by the Emperor himself, he can't screw it up. He calls for the stormtroopers who are assigned to the ship."You two, be on guard, and did either of you see the chef before he was killed?""I was with him in hallway B sir, he bumped into me and spilled a tray.""Thank you, don't let anyone suspicious out of your sight.""Understood" the stormtroopers leave'I hope Iago is safe at least, the boy is a hard worker, and this is his first assignment, it would be a shame if his first was also his last' the Captain thought to himself...
19:00-Depths of Space-En Route to ZofiaThe lieutenant walks up to the captain "Maintenance crew member Vlad Grobshev is dead, he was found on a noose in his quarters."Iago looks nervous, he was just discussing with the captain about increasing security, and now another dark deed surfaces.The Captain nods, "Thank you lieutenant. Iago, you are dismissed, please, see to it you are safe."Iago nods. As he walks to his quarters he feels hands clasp on his shoulders as someone whispers in his ear "The Actor's here, the actor's playing his part." Iago jumped and turned around to see Kal, his helmet off. "Calm down Iago, just having a little fun while I get the only break during my day, stay safe." Kal walks off. Iago rushes to his room, and locks the door.
07:00-Depths of Space-En Route to ZofiaThe lieutenant walks to the Captain's station and finds it empty. an hour passes, and the lieutenant sees Iago fixing the hyperdrive, it had been struck in the 'night' by another asteroid, those damn things kept hitting the ship, the hefty price of staying completely out of range from Powerian scanners. The lieutenant knocks on the Captain's doors, no answer. He knocks again, no answer. He calls Iago over. "Can you force the door open?""Yes sir, I can." Iago gets to work and eventually forces it open, they are both met by a grim sight, the Captain's decapitated body.... Iago shudders, "Another body found...I'm going to be sick from all of this...."The lieutenant exhales "Iago, I am in charge now, I want you to inform the Stormtroopers of this incident and have them search the ship.""Yes sir."5 minuets pass as the lieutenant waits for Iago's return, "Sir, Trooper TK-2190 is dead, stabbed. Tropper TK-2172 is the only one left."The lieutenant breaths in sharply, this can't be happening....
15:00-Depths of Space-En Route to ZofiaKal sits next to Iago"So...the spy, intruder, whatever...it looks like they bailed, though the lieutenant seems to be so frightened he won't let anyone near him. It;s just us Iago."Iago doesn't respond, he just watches as a shooting star passes by before sighing"What's on your mind?""Kel....I need to confess something before we all die.""Well, we aren't going to die if we act smartly, but feel free to speak.""Kal...I-well...I mean...I killed them.....I thought maybe I could solve the problem of the spy, I killed Leonard because he was being suspicious, but then I heard more noises, I heard someone talking about killing...I though I could solve it all, save everyone. I killed them all...the chef, Vlad, Tom....the Captain...the pilots..."Kal slowly gets up and raises his blaster rifle to Iago's head"Tell me this is a joke.""No....just shoot me already if you're going to, but it won't matter."Suddenly Kal's face contorts as a knife blade goes through him. He gasps before falling. Servetzion looks at her work as Iago turns around and falls out of his seat at the sight of her. "It was you....wasn't it, you were the one there the whole time weren't you?""Poor thing...it must have been a lot for you...the last one I did this to just abandoned his post and fled. You actually had to go through everything..."Iago is breathing heavily...he reaches for his blaster before he is stabbed"Hush...hush...shhhh....sleep peacefully."Everything fades away as Iago dies.
