RNN Headquarters, REPUBLICA -- With the recent news of its resignation and three month transitional period from the Galactic Alliance, the New Republic reaffirms its continued opposition of the Galactic Empire and Imperial Union; a staunch contrast to the Krath Empire and the Archduchy of Tolondaâs desire for neutrality.
Three days ago, the New Republicâs Chief of State Orion Chran and High Ambassador Xitwa announced to both citizens of the Republic and the Galactic Alliance Leadership Council the unanimous decision that had cleared the Senate Chambers. Prior to Operation Urgent Fury, the operation spearheaded by the New Republic and her allies, the Senate and the Advisory Council had engaged in a series of discussions that focused on the New Republicâs continued place in the Galactic Alliance. Concerns at that time focused on the cultural differences between Member Groups, sovereign rights, and the growing opposition to any action that would expand mutual aid and the cooperative spirit the Galactic Alliance was founded on.
Three weeks ago, a series of leaked information from the New Republicâs Senate Chambers reached allies in the Galactic Alliance. The information contained in the leaks provided an insight into the disappointment that some officials had with other Member Groups and what effects would ensue if the New Republic would vote to withdraw from the alliance. Almost instantly, accusations of corruption and demands for accountability were levied against the New Republic. Despite the best efforts of many of the within the Galactic Leadership Council, including the New Republic representatives, hostilities continued to grow and ultimately the New Republic Senate decided to temporarily suspend access to the technology that the Krath and the Archduchy of Tolonda had access to. Though the leaked information was not the singular reason behind the resignation, the reaction by certain Member Groups proved to tip the scales and settle any uncertainty that the Senate may have had on the New Republicâs future.
Mere hours after the New Republic announced its resignation, the Krath and the Archduchy would surprise the Galactic Alliance with back to back resignations of their own. Unlike the three month transitional period set forth and agreed upon by the Senate, the Krathâs and Archduchy resignation was immediate. It was not long after, that Secretary General, Va`Li Owa of the Arkaninan Brotherhood, called for a temporary hold on official alliance business to allow all Member Groups the opportunity to evaluate these changes and focus on unity.
Communication between the Galactic Alliance and the New Republic have remained open and are projected to stay this way. In an earlier statement, the High Ambassador declared "[The New Republic] will continue to work with and maintain relationships with all Member Groups of the Alliance; the ability for all parties to continue to grow and foster the much needed respect and assistance for one another still exists. Many of them remain dedicated allies and partners, both now and in the future. It is extraordinarily unfortunate that [the New Republicâs] departure came to pass - yet despite the diversion of our paths, the ultimate destination remains the same: the complete and unequivocal opposition of the Imperial Union and the threats it poses to all sentient beings."
It is too early at this point to speculate what will develop in the coming months between the New Republic and the Galactic Alliance. However, with both parties committed to the defense of the Imperial threat, the New Republic remains ready for the good fight yet to come.
The screen flashes black and a masked, hooded figure appears.
âGreetings, sentients of the galaxy. We apologize for interrupting your regularly scheduled programming but it is time the galaxy knows the truth about the death of Countess Chani Mournfire.â The figure looks at the screen and begins to pace across it.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
âFor those unaware, Chani Mournfire burst onto the scene as a wildly popular and successful artist. Nearly every group in the galaxy displays some of her art. In fact, there is even some on display in these humble halls.â The figure gestures over his shoulder to a framed image on the wall behind him.
âThis artwork brought her a great deal of attention and, more importantly, wealth. This wealth made her a target for some of the galaxies slimiest individuals, including Corey Vildras, Duke of Tolando.Â Vildras convinced Mournfire to invest a sizeable portion of her capital into the Archduchy of Tolando. He did this for two reasons. One was a natural greed. His second reason was much more sinister. Vildras was deeply in debt. He owed billions of credits to a former member of the now-defunctÂ Galactic Alliance and smaller sums to other organizations. In order to pay out his exorbitant salaries, and repay his debts, Vildras needed a cash cow. He chose Mournfire.â The sentient in the mask pauses.
âThis was all well and good so long as Mournfire played the game. For a while she did, quickly ascending the ranks of the Archduchy and reaching the rank Countess of Krmar, along with other lesser titles. However, according to sources within the Archduchy, right before her death, there was a falling out between the Countess and the Duke behind closed doors. Mournfire threatened to withdraw her substantial financial support from the Archduchy.â The sentient pauses briefly as security holo-footage of two figures arguing, one obviously Pauâan,Â rolls across the screen.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
âVildras had no choice but to take Mournfireâs threat seriously. The timing was terrible for him.Â Not only did he desperately need funds, but the Archduchy was also attempting to upgrade its tech status with the New Republic. If Mournfire withdrew her funds, Vildras would be unable to pay his debts and might lose his power before he could acquire the lucrative New Republic tech.Â Â Mournfire also knew of Vildrasâ secret truce with the Zann Consortium, an enemy of the Galactic Alliance. So VildrasÂ sent her on a mission of goodwill, using one of the ships belonging to the Archduchy. Unbeknownst to her, the ship was her death warrant. She was murdered aboard by thugs acting under orders of the Duke.â The masked man pauses asÂ brief holo-footage of several sentients shooting down a defenseless woman plays on screen.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
âHowever, it was not enough for Vildras that he had Mournfireâs assets. He had to find a scapegoat to salvage his status with the Galactic Alliance.Â He chose the easiest, least imaginative scapegoat possible, the Galactic Empire. He published a broadside claiming that the Empire had murdered Mournfire, and that a member of the Empire, whose name we are withholding for their safety, had attempted to stop the killing. We contacted this member and discovered there was no truth to this claim.Â Sources within the Empire tell us they had nothing to do with Mournfireâs death. This leads to the inescapable conclusion that Vildras is lying.âÂ The man stops pacing and faces the screen.
âVildras is a notorious scoundrel and scammer so finding him a liar is not hard to believe. Finding him a murderer only slightly more surprising.Â Recently, a PURE news report, undoubtedly authorized by the Archduchy, has added weight to this conclusion. The Archduchy was able to claim Mournfireâs body for burial. Since no sane sentient believes the Empire would turn over the body, this seems incredibly unlikely. The body must have been where it could be accessedâ¦an Archduchy ship.â The man pauses and the camera pans directly to his masked face.
âYou might ask, why do we interrupt you to tell you this? Because we are the Avengers of Innocent. We are the exposers of evildoers throughout the galaxy. We are everywhere, we see and hear all. We are the Brotherhood... and we are coming for you, Vile Dress!â The screen fades to black.
Earlier last week, the planet of Kazarak in the Sertar sector, bore witness to an exceptional act of kindness in the midst of political war and civil unrest. Months after the Hosnian conflict began bombarding the galaxy with reports of high-profile assassinations, unwarranted arrests, and continuous hostilities with the native population, over 4,000 civilian workers that were detained by the New Republic have been transported from Hosnian to Kazarak where they received shelter. The High Ambassador of the New Republic, Gand Xitwa, had this to say during the liberation:
"It is the view of the New Republic that these individuals that were detained during building operations do not and have not posed any lasting risk to the New Republic efforts and as such have been provided both care and transport to facilities that will ensure their safety and security. The New Republic acknowledges that some of these detainees have families, friends, and loved ones that they would like to return to and we will take no action to prevent them the reuniting they may desire. However, the New Republic also acknowledges and sympathizes the fears and concerns that some many have expressed in returning to their Imperial homes due to their status within the Galactic Empire and fear they have long experienced."
The city of Santuario was an altruistic project born out of the mutual interest of the Tion Hegemony and the New Republic for the well being of all living sentients who were stripped of their freedom. The city was built with a fully equipped hospital in preparation to treat any injured refugee with physical or psychological trauma experienced during the siege over Hosnian. Only days after completion of the cityâs development, it has now become the home for many outcasts that have chosen to stay in Kazarak in the prospect of a new life; those wishing to stay in the Greater Tionese Cluster, have been greeted with welcoming words of the Lady Hegemon Stephanie Barefoot:
"The Tion Hegemony is, and I hope it will, remain a beacon of neutrality. Therefore we will happily take in and watch over these many thousands of individuals who have been left stranded and far from home. Although displaced, they will receive the best of medical attention from the many doctors and nurses from Athakam MedTech and a generous charity set up on the neighboring planet of Karazak has already led to large donations of food and clothing should they be required. I want to thank the High Ambassador for reaching out to me personally and I can personally guarantee that those wishing to remain on Kazarak will be a very welcome addition to Tionese society."
Although it is true that many have opted to be integrated into Tionese society, some others have taken to the nearby starports to return to Imperial territory and be reunited with the families left behind. Commercial transportation services and private exportation companies, all sanctioned by the Hegemony, joined the philanthropic endeavor to provide a free-of-charge passage from Kazarak to Coruscant, capital of the Galactic Empire, to those looking for a way back to the life they knew before the conflict in Hosnian.
The Galactic Empire, however, has taken a firm stand on the warning placed on Day 197 of the current year, where Emperor Seele reiterated the Empire's governance over the Byblos sector and officially criminalized any unauthorized claim to territories on Hosnian. Many individuals and organizations chose to defy the Empire's warning an expropriated land lots throughout the system, prompting the beginning of the civil conflict. Today, Emperor Seele restated the Galactic Empire's convictions against the illegality of foreign claims on Imperial territory:
"Many of the prisoners taken by the Empire were executed for their crimes and assault on Imperial worlds. The galaxy was explicitly warned, but these people made a conscious choice to intrude upon Imperial claimed territory and to assist the New Republic in their invasion of the Hosnian system. Their active involvement in a military assault by the New Republic on Imperial worlds means they are not, by legal definition, civilians; thus these beings were tried by military tribunals as befits their involvement in the New Republicâs war-machine.
"As for the construction crews of the Imperial Union which were illegally imprisoned and abducted by the New Republic, they have received compensation packages from the Empire and provided with early retirement. We feel deep compassion for those brave construction crews, and their early retirements are a means to protect them from continued exposure to the warmongering of the New Republic."
The Hegemony has communicated that every non-combatant sentient taken prisoner during a political conflict is to be considered an innocent life, and the preservation of their individual rights is of the utmost importance to the Hegemony. The city Santuario in Kazarak will, therefore, remain open to welcome any present or future civilian refugees in need of asylum.
This has been Lianna Corvae for the Greater Tion News Group, wishing for a positive resolution to the Hosnian conflict.
Recently, there has been a lot of political intrigue across the galaxy. In a stunning move, the New Republic has withdrawn from the Galactic Alliance. In their formal notice to the alliance, posted by High Ambassador Xitwa, the Republic cited a lack of reciprocal trust, cooperation, and respect from other Galactic Alliance members. They have given a three-month timeframe to the rest of the alliance during which they will maintain their obligations. However, during that time the Republic will look to review and change or renew agreements with the member groups prior to their exit.
The accusations of broken trust refer directly to recent statements by Corey Vildras, of the Duchy of Tolonda, noting that the Duchy planned to leave the Alliance just after obtaining greater access to Repbulic technology. Although getting access to Republic technology and then leaving the alliance in order to use the entities for their own gain has been a recurring theme for the life of the Galactic Alliance,Â previous attempts were not brazen or foolish enough to have their plans get leaked to New Republic Intelligence sources prior to actually obtaining the desired gear and leaving.
There are rumors swirling that Duke Vildras needed to sell the Republic technology in order to pay off debts incurred running the Duchy.Â These rumors also hintÂ thatÂ he may have had a hand in the death of Chani Mournfire, in order to avoid refunding her investments into the Duchy.Â These rumors are in direct opposition to the article he paid a competing news agency to post on his behalf regarding Mournfire's death.
Upon hearing the report of the Duchyâs plan to abscond with technology, the Republic instead of approving the request for additional technology access, instead froze all Duchy access. This act, and the reactions across the alliance appears to have been the straw that broke the back of the fractured alliance. The Duchy is also allegedly leaving the alliance, with an eye towards joining the Galactic Concordiate instead.
Krath has also announced their exit from the Galactic Alliance. Over the past few years, with significant leadership changes and a few well publicized differences regarding sentient rights and force use policy, Krathâs place in the alliance had been a point of contention. However, their membership always hinged on their ferocious opposition to the Empire, and technological sharing. Krathâs Modular Taskforce Cruiser being potentially the most significant technology in the alliance not controlled by the New Republic. However, when hostilities in the Hosnian system broke out, Krath forces provided nearly no support to the Alliance forces. The lack of military support, combined with the New Republic also freezing Krath access to technology, doomed the relationship. With their waning desire to combat Imperial forces, it is no surprise to see Krath also leave the alliance as well.
There are rumors of a fourth faction leaving the alliance, but that has yet to be confirmed by our sources. Deputy Secretary General Evan Bluvius of the Triumvirate Coalition feigned ignorance of the spiraling condition of the alliance prior to Krathâs public declarations.
This turmoil has managed to find its way to the opposite side of the galactic war, as well. When I spoke earlier of sentients using the Galactic Alliance for access to technology and then abandoning the Alliance, one such individual was Helen Hawk, formerly of the eXiles. Most recently, she had been part of Tresario Star Kingdom. However, it is reported that she is currently in the custody of New Republic Intelligence. Kevin Wolff, formerly an Admiral and trusted advisor to the Tresario throne, and more recently the head of the Bounty Hunterâs Guild, has captured Ms. Hawk and handed her over to the Republic for the bounty on her head. House Tresario sees this act as a betrayal and has formally declared war against the hunters. Marshall Wolff, speaking to Shili Free Press Reporters, noted that the Agreement signed between House Tresario and his guild only protected members of House Tresario, an honor which Ms. Hawk was never afforded. Therefore, of the charges leveed against him, Mr. Wolff claims to only be guilty of perhaps one charge, the trafficking of persons charge. These charges against Mr. Wolff appear largely inaccurate, and may be motivated by King Rexarâs fears surrounding Mr. Wolff. When the throne was vacated by former King Jude Vatz, Mr. Wolff was King Rexarâs biggest rival to become the monarch. Wolff also noted that between this incident, and the Empire still not having fully paid the compensation negotiated for acquiring Raysho during the Hosnian situation, the hunterâs guild has started to question the value of bounties posted by Imperial Union members.
In other Imperial Union news, the Galactic Empire has named a new executor, the second in command of the Empire. Graeda L`annan has been appointed to replace the previous executor, and former emperor, Guinar Ndengin. Executor L`annan has led a distinguished career within the Empire spanning nearly a decade of leadership positions, including both Lord Admiral of the Navy and Lord General of the Army, as well as being named the Countess of her homeworld of Baraboo. This appointment will likely result in some shuffling of the high command both to replace the position she vacated, and potentially in reaction to some of the lessons learned on the battlefields of Hosnian.
So, it seems the galaxy has been a busy place these last few weeks, and we expect more reactions and aftereffects shortly.
I also would like to tease some news of our own. Following some discussions with the New Repbulic, we at Shili Free Press have been granted building permits, and licensing agreements to construct a new permanent broadcasting facility in the Shili system. We anticipate beginning construction on these facilities within the next two weeks. Our new facilities will allow us to register officially as a corporate entity in the galactic registers, joining the recent explosion of chartered businesses.
So, until our next report, hopefully from our new upgraded studios, this is Lahasa Fy, Shili Free Press, hoping everyone stays safe out there.
Krath to leave in less than 24 hours, Emperor Kell says
Several hours ago, Emperor Lazarus Kell and his Imperial Council had reached a decision that will undoubtedly affect Krath space for years to come. After calling in an emergency session of the Council earlier this week, Emperor Kell had issued a public proclamation to every Krath household. In case you missed it or were not tuned to the Krath state channel at the time of the broadcast, we provide a direct transcript below:
âIt is with a heavy heart that I must on this day announce the withdrawal of The Krath from the Galactic Alliance. For many years we have seen members come and go from the Alliance, in all that time under my leadership as well as under previous leaders of Krath we have worked towards supporting our friends in the Galactic Alliance to the best of our abilities. In recent times, however, we have witnessed the slow degradation of what once made the Alliance strong. Instead of focusing on our roots of military cooperation we have been consistently caught up in political posturing and bickering over cultural differences. With that in mind and after extensive discussions in the highest councils of Krath, we have decided it would be for the best to take our leave from the Alliance and adopt a neutral stance in the galactic conflict. To our former allies I would say we bear no grudges and for those who would still call us friends we would do the same.â
The statement came as a surprise to many, albeit the message it contained was hardly unexpected. Although the official stance of the church and state has always favored the GA in the Galactic Civil War, the cultural divide between Krath and other member states was obvious at a glance. Even though public figures often emphasized the importance of a unified military resistance against the Galactic Empire and its puppet states, it would seem the constant pressure on Krath to fall within the cultural norm has finally taken its toll. Citizens of Krath will undoubtedly remember the time we were lambasted over the stateâs decision to make an example of the most notorious criminal our Empire had ever seen: Varro Belle.
Shortly after the execution, tensions flared between the Krath and the New Republic on the justification of the extreme punishment. The fallout resulted in a diplomatic crisis that caused the abrupt career decline of the then contemporaneous Secretary General of the Galactic Alliance (Natalis Oro, New Republic). This led to her spearheading an extremely caustic anti-Krath smear campaign amongst the Republicâs citizens. From that point on, the communications between the Republic and the Krath began deteriorating. Slowly but steadily, this divide increased in size, eventually becoming a full-on communications breakdown. This was only one of many policies and actions that would be taken to threaten Krath sovereignty from the Alliance as a whole.
With the newly-imposed trade embargo on Krath by the Republic, coming in the late days of this year, it would seem that Emperor Kell and the Imperial Council had had enough. Calling an emergency session, heâd decided that if Krath had to choose between two evils, it would not choose at all. With other states already announcing their departure from the Alliance as well, it is clear that we can expect major political shifts in the months to come.
One thing remains certain though, the Imperial Treasury has sarcastically assured all citizens of the galaxy that the Nova Crystal remains stable and is still backed by the Krath government.
Sevarcos â âCredits are nothing!â âTents are forever!â says Eidola Chief Tent Executive Fleuf Naze. Indeed Fleuf is working to change the economic landscape of the galaxy, looking to fill the void left by the decreasing relevance of the Nova Crystal with his own superior alternative currency. Reports indicate that Fleuf recently purchased the Trade Federationâs entire reserves of tents to pitch all over Eidola space, providing significant economic stimulation.
The mysterious Fleuf has been unclear regarding his intentions, leading many to speculate that he himself has no idea what he wants to achieve. In the past few months, Fleuf has been seen participating in a variety of schemes such as attempting to corner the galactic market by working to produce one million tents, hiring the services of a market research firm to determine if the camouflage tent market was lucrative enough to enter, and attempting to sell off 5,700 of his tents at one million credits apiece to raise prices. However, most analysts agree that Fleuf has focused the majority of his recent efforts on the creation of his new tent-based religion. This new philanthropic organization has been seen in many sectors across the galaxy, labeling those who did not pitch tents as âhereticsâ and attempting to re-educate sentients who refused to buy tents to pitch.
But darkness has gathered on the horizon to blot out his light, for there are those in the galaxy who didnât want Fleufâs vision of giving every sentient the privilege of living under a Fleuf-pitched tent to succeed. Some of these beings have the financial means to stop this grand plan, and recently an anonymous 300 million credit bounty was placed on Fleufâs head. This surprising revelation has resulted in a variety of questions, including but not limited to: Why are the galactic elite targeting this simple tent merchant? What exactly is it about his indiscriminate tent pitching that has rubbed the wealthy of the galaxy the wrong way? And who is willing to spend such a significant amount to capture an individual who is only trying to help?
A source close to Fleuf has reported that he may be intending to use a portion of his vast tent reserves to erect a temporary living facility for the miserable Ugnaughts of Drup II, who have so far been largely ignored by the local government representatives. This may explain why Fleuf is being targeted as the galaxyâs powerful and wealthy have repeatedly refused to help this struggling minority, preferring to keep all of their money safely stored in their pockets and GCB bank accounts. As an example, even the Pirate Queen Syn herself refused to give Fleuf a measly 1.7 billion credits to use for the production of additional tents to house the homeless Ugnaughts left over in Sevarcos from the Drup Situation. Syn reportedly said: âThere are so many tents in Eidola space that our homeless live a life of luxury with at minimum a main home tent, a beach vacation tent, and a ski chalet tent, not to mention some of the temporary tents which can be sustained for over 4 hours!â This lack of generosity is rampant in the upper echelons of the galaxy and could very well explain why this this tent pitching do-gooder is being targeted.
The large bounty on the galaxyâs foremost religious tent-erecting Duros has drawn widespread interest from the galaxyâs elite and not-so-elite bounty hunting groups, including Exanthium Kerenskyâs Dha Werda Verda. While Kerensky, a former Eidola member, swore that she would never target the Eidola Pirates, evidently the lure of a 300 million credit bounty was enough to compromise her morals. After some deliberation (and her first choice of hunter vanishing under mysterious circumstances), she directed the recently appointed second-in-command of her organization, Mikel Blaine, to capture the harmless zealot.
Fortunately for Fleuf, Governor Argon Nightwish of the Eidola Pirates caught wind of the rapidly approaching kidnapping attempt. Upon hearing the disconcerting rumor, Argon vowed to stop this wannabe bounty hunter from succeeding in the capture and probable execution of the galaxyâs foremost tent pitcher. After a council of war with himself lasting several minutes, Argon decided on a master plan to stop Blaineâs tent-blocking scheme.Â Argon lured Blaine to Sevarcos, and from there onto an Eidola ship, under the pretext that Fleuf was using the ship to collect raw materials for use in his grand production plan, leading Blaine to believe that the only thing standing between himself and success was a single locked door. But it was not to be for the foolish bounty hunter, as Fleuf was half a galaxy away and it was, in fact, Argon himself waiting for him behind the door. As Blaine worked tirelessly to break through the door, the pirate sat in silence preparing himself for the battle ahead by taking shots of Corellian brandy. After several hours of failed attempts, Blaine was shocked to finally break down the door and see an inebriated Argon in his heavy battle armor bringing his famed twin blasters to bear, rather than the Duros he was expecting. The fight was intense but ultimately short, with Argon emerging victorious.
When asked about the confrontation, Argon said: âWho? I did what? Of course Iâm glad he wasnât able to reach Fleuf, but is this even worth discussing?â Indeed, throughout the interview Argon repeatedly questioned why this event was even newsworthy. Appearing far more serious than he did initially did, Argon was quoted as saying: âThey said they would not take bounties on Eidola due to past allegiancesâ¦ but they did. I know they need targets to chase and the available options are limited, but you have to draw a moral line somewhere. Yeah, I shot the guy, and I have no doubt he deserved it. Perhaps itâs time for Dha Werda Verda to simply fade like so many of the other forgotten bounty hunting groups. Itâs a difficult sector to be in and Iâm not at all convinced they have what it takes.â
Argonâs killing of Blaine is only one in a long line of Eidolaâs protection of its own, and history has not been kind to those who attempt to penetrate Eidolaâs defenses. Speaking of the latest Eidolon to be targeted, Navarchos Carl Warrington, a close ally of Argon, has been reported as saying: âWe donât know why he is running around pitching tents all over the place, but he is our tent-pitcher and we donât take kindly to people trying to deflate him.â
For now it seems peace will reign and Fleuf will be able to continue his efforts, but for how long? It can only be assumed that the significant bounty against Fleuf is still available to collect, and it is only a matter of time until someone else makes an attempt. In the meantime, we urge the gentle beings of the galaxy to continue their financial support of the religious movement by generously giving to Fleufâs tent making and acquisition endeavors; even a small donation of credits or goods could go a long way toward helping build a brighter future for the galaxyâs destitute citizens. Donations can be made directly to Eidola for redistribution and will be used exclusively for the greater good of the galaxy.
High Council Ends Infestation
ARGAI, CRONESE MANDATE, TION CLUSTER
Golan II - Port Argolis Security Checkpoint
Marked for immediate release.
Year 18 Day 80 - Today saw the successful end of a five day operation by senior members of the Tion Hegemony High Council, according to a spokessentient from the Office of the Lady Hegemon.
Upon notification that Kray Voh, infamous bounty hunter and proprietor of Ever Light Transportation, was scheduled to arrive in Argai to gather an order for an Athakam MedTech customer, the High Council formulated a plan to capture the Yam`rii.
An arrest warrant was approved by a quorum of the sitting High Councillors on Day 75, as agents swarmed the Argai system, home of Athakam MedTech, to secure the system and wait-out the arrival of the acknowledged criminal.
Once the Yam'rii was in custody deliberation over trial and execution occurred, with immediate execution of Kray Voh being voted as the course of justice. Summary of charges include: attempting to kidnap a Tionese citizen, attempted bounty, operating illegally within Tionese space, offering bounties of top Tion officials, and criminal threatening of the Lady Hegemon.
The affected customer of Athakam MedTech was contacted post-operation by the Rector Superior of Athakam, who authorized a swift refund and arranged transportation for the delivery of the customer’s goods, including the care of a sand panther cub that Mr. Voh had in his possession.
The Tion High Council would like to offer support to any victims of Kray Voh’s schemes. If anyone having hired Ever Light Transportation believes they will have been affected by this apprehension, please contact Fleet Admiral Crislyn Anessa Waryn.

Downhearted Tion Hegemony Emboldened by Leadership (Posted by Crislyn Anessa Waryn on Year 17 Day 358)
GTNG -- Kazarak system, Sertar, Tion Cluster
But, in order to accurately report the story of Lady Barefoot’s transition to leader of the Tionese people, we must revisit the previous 60 days of the Tionese year. In the weeks leading up to the Tionese annual Day of Unity celebrations, rumors had begun circulating the worlds under the protection of the Tion Hegemony. Hushed voices in every bar, factory, and homestead could be heard asking the same question: "What has become of Lord Hegemon Asai?"
"Lord Takao Asai was the one who taught me the most about government life and planetary economics. I frankly owe everything to his teachings. I join all of Tion in their grieving for the loss of our leader, as I do for my long-time personal friend. But I can assure you, I will do my absolute utmost to continue to build on the work set upon by my predecessors. I am dedicated to seeing the Hegemony surge forward on a path of unlimited prosperity and unity for all Tionese. Tion will remain a neutral force within the galaxy, a committed member of the Galactic Concordiate, and a never fading beacon for all that is good in this galaxy!"
Following signing of the Desargorr Accord and her first official Hegemonial address, Lady Hegemon Barefoot, joined by her wife and their two children, hurried to Voss III where she welcomed the new head of Tion Engineering and Construction, now-Director Kulton Duine, to his new headquarters, before swiftly returning to Meeshae to hold the first High Council session of her tenure.
Among the most influential changes within the Tionese leadership was the naming of former Tion Military and Science Industries President, Abraari To as Chancellor. Sir To was succeeded at TMSI by long-time acting Vice President Stig`ray Morvo. In addition, former First Fleet Admiral William Radcliff was appointed Hyperion, Minister of Defense, his successor in First Fleet to be named early in the new year.
