After they've safety landed on D'Qar, the two pilots jumped out of their fighters. Inspecting, they went around their machines to look at the damage.
Despite the shields the TIEs were able to score some hits. A shiver ran down Snap's spine when he saw that they've barely missed the hyper drive motivator.
Nomi joined him when she had finished her inspection.
"This was tight, Snap."
He nodded. "Thank you for saving my ass."
Nomi shook her head. "I've to thank you, without you I would be space dust."
Wexley poked slightly her arm. "We're even. I only hope that the data were worth the effort."
"Certainly. You should bring them directly to Poe."
Snap looked at her questioningly. "You don't come?"
The Jedi shook her head. "No, it was your mission and I was only your backup. I've to get out of the coverall, somehow I think that I smell like a rotten blum fruit."
Temmin laughed, then went quickly to Poe Dameron's barrack followed by his astromech droid, to hand over the collected data.
A bit later it knocked at the door and a furious Temmin Wexley stood in front of her.
"Those damn Nerf herders!"
At Wexley's remark, Dash, who was just polishing his blaster, looked up from work.
Nomi made room for Snap so he could enter. He went to the small table and sat down on one of the folding chairs. Nomi touched reassuring his arm when she had also sat down.
"What happened, Snap?"
He looked at her and answered: "We have been almost fried for nothing, Nomi. This happened. Poe has the data transmitted to Hosnian Prime. And anyone who is not blind must see what they mean.
But no, some sort of bureaucrat has nothing to say except that these data are not relevant and have no meaning. What must happen, that the New Republic is finally waking up?"
Nomi shrugged. "I don't know, Snap."
But I know it, Nomi. They don't wake up until they feel the Imperial boots again. But then it's damn too late."
Dash intervened. "So no official support for the Resistance by the New Republic?"
Snap nodded. "Exactly, Dash."
Rendar grinned. "So almost like in the old days with the Alliance. We have nothing and we try to make the best of it.
I understand your disappointment, but believe me, even the most laziest bureaucrat on Hosnian Prime will someday recognize the danger."
At that moment, Biggs popped his head through the door and shouted into the room, "At 2000 briefing in the command center!" Then he had disappeared.
Snap grinned. "I thought that the High Command won't accept that the First Order is there."
