I'm trying to recall where we're at in the plot development. If I Recall Correctly after Trix and Rep go to hyperspace, that part is finished (for now: Trix will be able to get free due to the Hilt's later disappearance for 4 months) I moved the shuttle's departure up. It should be my next Nykon POV post announcing the shuttle's jump.
I was thinking I will start the ball rolling on Reaver's mischief; with an announcement that the ship's gearing up to make a random jump. It's not going to happen right away (the jump itself) it'll be more like a countdown clock that Nkyon will try to stop. He will fail- but he'll at least get Rep and Trix's shuttle off first, and then as the last shuttle starts to come up he'll order them to slave their ship to the Hilt, then secure it with a tractor beam- to keep the group together. (this will keep them isolated from the chaos that occurs on the ship during the month long jump) --(was it going to be one month? Or ten days? That part I'm a little fuzzy. And we had decided that the Galaxy will have moved forward 10 years correct? Or were we going to jump even farther?)--
During the hyperspace jump Reaver makes his move; after setting the ship's drive to show a random destination- it's really set to his library world- he's seeking his library to consolidate his power. He finds Will's hypo and sets to making a aresol that blocks a Jedi's use of the Light Side- making his movements on the ship even easier. But from this point on the Galaxy doesn't see or hear from the mission for ten years.
(During time gone- Rep Gordon sets up a series of beacons searching for the Hilt in an attempt to discover what happened, and where the ship went. He never gave up looking. Trix managed to take advantage of the Hilt's disappearance, claiming that he was in control all along until mutiny removed him from the Hilt. (his original story now holds water with no one but the 4 or so guards to dispute it, and most of them were not witness to the events in the first place.--we'd still have a secondary plot running in real time- like perhaps the Saber's Hilt had something aboard that was crucial to the Republic- something else Rep or the Jedi need to get from the ship- like visions of some evil spreading from it- which Trix has been hailed as a hero for detecting in the "Grey Jedi" but the real darkness was Reaver and what he did on the ship during the 5 year jump. And that the answers Rep is looking for are not that the Grey Jedi became the evil- but that a Sith had infected the Ship and thus it was SITH- not Grey Jedi that was causing the darkness that all the Jedi were seeing in their visions surrounding the Saber's Hilt and it's disappearance. or something has become crucial in its absence? Like a "If only the Saber's Hilt would show up we'd have (plot point) again"
) (For the hilt it's only the short time gone.) (The tractor beam will break before the Hilt drops out of hyperspace, leaving the shuttle in hyperspace a second longer- that second is going to be all the time Reaver needs to make his changes- it'll have been a month separating the Hilt from the shuttle- the shuttle will have had a second- the hilt Reaver has enough time take over the ship and leave it looking derelict for when the shuttle drops out.) But they don't find the Hilt- instead they find a shuttle sent by the Order- one investigating rumors of a dead ship- Brent Darklighter will be on this shuttle with the knowledge of what went down with Rep and Trix and the ten years away.
They team up to find Bream and the Hilt- and track the rumors to Malachor V where the Hilt's been since Reaver came back onto the ship after the first jump to his library- he took a shuttle to the surface sees the library destroyed takes the only items of Sithly value and turns them on the Jedi. And heads for Malachor V to unleash the dark powers there.
When the shuttle teams up with Brent- I'll use his POV to help move that part of the story along. For in the mean time Nykon and Hal's story will run concurrent with the other until they meet up again. So when I set things rolling don't feel pressed to shorten anything- I won't have the ship "JUMP" until the shuttle's in the air and has left orbit to catch up- though I may play with communications back and forth to the team from a panicked Hilt crew lol
EDIT: Also if we decided to the Knights of Pain ship can "tractor onto the Hilt as well- or even slave to it since Nykon will be broadcasting in the clear.
Remind me- Reaver should use Will's hypo in combination with something from his library to make the zombies. And uses something to help control them- need to work that part out- but it's still a ways out so I'm not too worried.

Ummm creepy enough to find some way to use similar?
I like it. We could potentially work it that the creature has inhabited Malchor V since its destruction finding sufficient bodies/creatures to survive (depending on how you envision Reaver's power he could find a way to control the creature to help take over the Hilt or even bind with it similar to Darth Bane bonded with the orbalisk) or it could be attracted to the sudden activity there forcing Jedi and Sith to unite for survival.
I was thinking something similar- like Reaver finds a way to subdue the creatures self awarness- keeps it de evolved in a fashion. (But the beauty is that the creature itself could grown into a bigger threat to even Reaver too if he's not careful. or if the Jedi take Reaver out- they find they now have a freed Mnggal-Mnggal on their hands that's strong, angry and ready to feast and grow.....
