I want to create a smallish Star Wars based game.
A Jedi of the New Republic is sent on a diplomatic mission. Her destination is one of the rim worlds. Whilst on the surface, she uncovers a plot by the Imperial Remnant, aided by genetically created force users.
She manages to escape her foes, but needs passage off the planet as her own ship has been taken by the Imperials and they have their men looking for her.
She hires a merc and his crew to not only get her off the planet, but also out of the sector, which is controlled by the Imperial Remnant, who have several ships in orbit as well as countless others swarming all through the sector.
The story would focus on the efforts to get my Zeltronian Jedi back to the Core. Of course, things would go badly enough that it wouldn't turn out to be a straight-forward little endeavor.
I would play the Jedi Consular. I need a small group of players to provide the crew of the mercs she hires to help her.
I'm thinking a crew of 3-4 people. No more to keep it small and manageable.
Any archetype is fine, a non-exhaustive list:
Or anything else you think might fit.
The antagonists would not be PCs but GM-controlled NPCs. Though I might allow some players to also NPC their own baddies.
Express your interest here. If I get enough people on board, I will post up a character sheet template.

The Jedi who hires the merc crewBackground:
Leysha was born on Nar Shaddaa. Her father departed before she was born, but according to her mother he had been a small-time crook and smuggler with whom she had enjoyed a whirlwind romance. Leysha’s own mother had the beauty that was so common with her people. As such, for most of Leysha’s childhood her mom worked at various nightclubs as an exotic dancer, most of the clubs owned by Hutts. The small Zeltronian was spoilt rotten by the other women working at the club, though once Leysha understood the true nature of her mothers work, she grew more fearful. Thankfully, her mother was a woman who could take care of herself.
Leysha saw another path for herself, though she was not sure how to pursue it. She had always been different, even as a Zeltronian child on Nar Shaddaa. She was often plagued by weird visions and she had eerily accurate premonitions. She rarely confided in anyone about these strange occurrences. At the age of 16, Leysha left Nar Shaddaa for Ylesia. There she found a job at a cantina in a small mining community, where she spurned the advances of many of the rowdier miners. An attempt by two of them to rape Leysha when she was 18 resulted in her killing one of them with the knife she had concealed on her body at all times and maiming the other. With the local Hutts not liking the fact that a fairly useless girl incapacitated two of their miners, a bounty was put on her name and she barely managed to slip away, successfully stowing away on a freighter that left the planet the very next day.
Through theft and subterfuge she managed to elude the Hutts and she bounced around from planet to planet for the next year. She settled on Corellia in 10 ABY, where she briefly lived together with a human male called Jubal Kalan. Their relationship was based on a strong physical attraction and not much more, but the man did give Leysha her first real home since leaving Nar Shaddaa at the age of sixteen. It was also whilst on Corellia that the next phase of her life would truly start. A Jedi, a Bith who had been one of Luke’s first apprentices at his newly formed Jedi Academy, came to Corellia having heard rumors of another force adept living there. The man he had been looking for, a Zabrak, had since departed the planet, but when the Bith entered a cantina that Leysha was eating lunch at, he immediately sensed her untrained abilities.
The Bith introduced himself as Doose Vanar, Jedi Knight. He had been a Dark Jedi prior to Luke Skywalker finding him and turning him back towards the Light. He had been tasked with finding Force Adepts throughout the Galaxy. Leysha was already quite a bit older than the age when Force Adepts began their Jedi training back in the old republic era, but Luke Skywalker was taking any potential student that he could. After a long talk with Doose, in which he managed to explain many of the weird visions she had experienced all through her life, she said her goodbyes to Jubal Kalan and joined Doose Vanar to the Jedi Praxeum on Yavin IV, where she was introduced to Luke Skywalker. Doose Vanar himself was chosen to become Leysha’s master. Their relationship was not always the easiest, as the passionate, extroverted and strong-willed Zeltron would often times clash with the Bith’s seemingly introverted and aloof manners. But he proved to be a good teacher nontheless, and within two years, Leysha passed her trials and became a Jedi Knight.
Leysha’s first mission as a Jedi Knight was a diplomatic one to Gall, one of Zhar’s moons. She was to represent the New Republic, putting out feelers for the potential of Gall joining the New Republic. What had appeared like a tedious assignment at first turned out to be anything but that, when Leysha’s spotted a large Imperial presence shortly after arriving, her situation further complicated by her own presence soon being detected by her enemies…
