Aquata breather. . . check.

Macrobinoculars. . . check.


Hwin combed over the mental list of supplies as she sifted her hands through her backpack and utility belt, triple-checking all the pockets and compartments, making sure all her belongings were in order. She did not want to forget anything that would likely come in handy for such an important exploration trip as this.

Most importantly, her lightsaber. Check.  Hwin patted the solid metallic hilt for confirmation. Sure enough, it was still clipped to her utility belt. So long as this weapon was by her side, she could survive anything.  Okay, well, best not jinx that. . .

At the landing platform, Hwin stood ready beside her Master at the assembly area along with a large group of people -- scientists, surveyors, and other Alliance-employed scouts, from what Hwin gleaned while chatting with a few -- as they waited for their ship to arrive.

It was going to be a grand expedition. Members of the Jedi Exploration Corps and the Alliance Survey Corps, teaming up together to conduct research on the ancient Rakata civilization. They would be traveling all the way to the planet Byss. Hwin had never been there before, and she was looking forward to setting foot someplace new. What artifacts and buried secrets they might uncover… the thought tingled her with anticipation.

Two other Jedi would be joining them on the expedition -- Hwin greeted them as they approached, once the pair arrived at the assembly area -- fellow colleagues whom she and Samara were well-acquainted with. Shamal Xevran and his padawan, Drey Karza. The four of them had worked and trekked together on many occasions, functioning quite well as a team. At least they'd have no problems there, getting along with one another.

The large scouting vessel docked at the platform, and the group filed on board. Hwin was surprised to find out that she had private quarters reserved for her. What luxury! She half-expected to be sharing bunks with the rest of the crew.

Hwin entered the small cabin, glancing around the confines and bare furnishings of the room. Definitely a far cry from "luxury" class, but she was nonetheless grateful to have her own little space for her to escape the noise and others, if need be. Settling into her new quarters, Hwin set her backpack aside and stretched herself out on the bed, hoping to catch up on a few hours' sleep, from jet lag.

They had a long trip ahead of them.
