Caves of Ilum.
This is TK-2406-01. Assignement: 35th Imperial recon team, planet of Ilum. I was moved from Murkhana because of my injury. I was getting on a transporter, then I got a shot in my arm. Pirates were everywhere, we barely escaped them. Onboard medical frigate I got to know about classified Imperial weapon program somewhere in sector 7G. Officer told me they need people, so right after my recovering I took the first ship going over there. During the war with Separatists I heard some intel about sector 7G. Mostly about blach holes, rapid meteor showers and dozens of strange things. The mission was a great way to find out if it's really true...
It turned out to be... Cold. Intensely cold... Ilum is such a raw world. Never very interesting as a strategic point, but its deposits of kyber... Marvellous.
On the firtst day, we had only tents and some prefabricated rooms. The facility was waiting for building it. Two next days of shaking from cold were the worst days in my life, although no one died from it. That was a suprise how much can a body survive in this temperature.
Then the command started gathering an expedition team. I and TK-3444-72 were the first troopers who joined. I was able to take T-21, we got warning about few native species that can be very aggressive. Elevator beeped, we got into it and ride down in the caves... Captain Mels was waiting for us with a group of techincians in black uniforms. Several deposits of kyber were already opened. It was warmer there than at the surface, what suprised me.
"Troopers! Come with me!" - said Mels.
And here started the expedition.
