Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (736) 9/23/2019 Sunday(invisible)
The animal was an outgrowth of the original Daggat project for a police animal. This one is larger and has elements of the wolverine and its fur has a high degree of mineral in it that aids in blaster fire protection. Along with ossicles on its skin not unlike some armored animals living and extinct went into it. While they were adapting the Wargs for use in their wars. Trigon Industries has come through again! These animals are called “Hodag” after the mythical one of the lumberwoods that this one was designed after.
The hodag has a horn on its head and smaller ones running down its broad back. Sort of wide and flat, and yet the extra legs make it move faster than one would expect such a thing to do. It is also intelligent enough to anticipate where blaster bolts are going to and can dodge them to a point. Though the stormtroopers behind it really can’t fire at them at the moment so they are pouring fire into the beast that will not stop! Just makes it angrier not fearful.
“Is there anyway to change the wiring or something to make this rig move faster?” Asked Night-2 to them all.
“I’m the chief engineer!” Night-3 said in a surprized voice.
“Then let met down there then Night-2!”
“Go for it!” She ordered him and moved out of the front car.
