The Finalizer meets Apollo's hand (RAR)

Postby FaxModem1 » 2016-08-25 04:37pm

In pursuit of sending the map for Luke Skywalker to the Resistance, Poe Cameron lands his x-wing on Pollux IV, where he meets Apollo. Apollo decides to take Poe under his protection, whether Poe likes it or not. The Finalizer, in hot pursuit, arrives in orbit of the planet, where they are confronted by a giant green hand, which swiftly grabs the Finalizer.

How do Admiral Hux and Kylo Ren react to this situation? Is a Greek god capable of fighting off a dark force user?

The crew of Finalizer all die of some horrible plague; the first symptom is simply hallucination of a giant green hand.

Alternatively, the crew are fine as soon as they're administered basic antibiotics; bubonic plague isn't the scary to modern medicine. It depends on if you want Apollo to have equivalent results or equivalent mechanisms of action to his mythological depictions.

Who Mourns for Adonais?, ST:OS, Season 2 Ep 2.
The Enterprise is stopped dead in its tracks by a powerful energy force that appears in the form of a human hand. Soon a being claiming to be Apollo orders Kirk and several others down to the planet below.
Turns out he's not all that powerful, and in typical fashion, the Enterprise crew kills the last of his kind. (Turns out new life and new civilizations are better as extinct academic curiosities than rivals for girls in miniskirts.)

The Enterprise took out Apollo by blowing up his temple, right? That shouldn't be THAT hard for the Finalizer to handle.

The question is whether Kylo Ren and company will end up going down to the planet to meet Apollo, or whether they'll just scan for the source of the... giant green hand, execute a few salvos and move along.
It's a strange world. Let's keep it that way.

A giant green hand wielded by a self-styled deity is not exactly a conventional weapon. I dare say it would warrant further investigation. Ren might even suspect that it is some previously unknown type of Force user.
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.

Another question is if the green hand can crush the Finalizer if they make Apollo angry.
