Earlier today, the Zann Consortium released a formal statement regarding a recent feud with the Galactic Alliance [GA] government in what has been referred to as an unavoidable incident. Despite a vocal truce orchestrated and guaranteed by New Republic Intelligence [NRI] officials, the New Republic were unsuccessful in negotiating mediation with Rogue Squadron [RS] leading to the event in which RS assault teams moved against Zann Consortium subsidiary Black Hole Manufacturing. This action comes against the intended peace established by NRI to protect Galactic Alliance affiliates.
After Zann attempts to negotiate diplomatically with RS broke down, it left the government in an unfortunate position in which Zann felt itâs interests must be protected. A warning was broadcast on open frequencies which stated, âGalactic Alliance forces who do not wish to sustain peace and stability for their worlds and people require a clear response to protect galactic sovereignty.â
NRI also attempted to negotiate with RS but were reputedly met with an unfavorable response. Newly appointed leader of the Zann Consortium Kyota Navic was quoted as saying, âYou would think after what has previously happened to various rebel governments during Zannâs reign, they would prefer peace. Other GA entities would consider the ramifications of turning us down when offered an alternative peaceful solution. It is clear that only half of the Alliance is willing to place what one would expect to be a common goal ahead of pride and prejudice.â The quote was stated shortly after the attempt to offer a diplomatic solution to RS was blatantly denied and invitation returned to Zann to âtry and do something about it.â
Zann Consortium has historically answered such calls to action and keeping with that has announced the capture of Commodore Jeff Knight by Defiler Seth Haze, with other unidentified agents supporting, resulting in Knightâs execution shortly after. Public records on the HoloNet confirm Jeff Knight as the senior commanding officer of Rogue Squadronâs primary military force, âThe Saber Fleet.â During his capture, Knight assumed he was being kidnapped for ransom claiming himself to be the âCrown Prince of Alderaan.â Knight was met with dismay when Zann Consortium officials informed him that his death would be a politically motivated assassination of an enemy military official and that the government was not concerned with any titles claimed, imaginary or otherwise, by their captive. Rogue Squadron has yet to publically comment on the Commodoreâs execution other than listing Jeff Knight as missing-in-action.
This retaliatory move is the first publically committed act of the new Zann Consortium regime, marking the official retirement of Crime Lord Ximaro Jix and Crime Boss Greyson Abrams and the subsequent rise of Kyota Navic and Xanxus Drol. Kyota has stated that where his predecessor Ximaro was known for corruption, sabotage and theft throughout the galaxy; Kyota sees a focus revolving around more violent ways of operating, including increased assassinations and warfare among the governmentâs enemies. Kyota continued to say that under his leadership, Zann would bring about a new era of violence even greater than the previous administrations history and that Rogue Squadron was but the first of many examples for those that trespass against Zann Consortium and refuse to negotiate.
Following the official statement of Ximaro Jixâs retirement, questions have been raised concerning his whereabouts, safety, and activities. Komoniic [Crime Boss] Xanxus Drol told reporters, âWe are proud to continue the legacy that Lord Ximaro Jix has forged for our vast criminal enterprise. All we can tell you at this time is that Ximaro, along with some of Zannâs high command, have retired and relinquished all authority and privileges back to the government and set out to pursue a life of piracy with the outfit Dread. We can confirm that under their control, Dread has withdrawn from the Zann Consortium umbrella, but will remain distant, but friendly, allies. No further questions.â
This unexpected and shocking turn of events has left many to wonder what Zann Consortium will do next and who will be their next intended target.
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.

Gree Press Release: Chopani Cave Drawings
18.43, Antmuel, Antmuel VI
The Gree Trade Authority today has announced the discovery of ancient parietal art, possibly created before the rise of the Rakata Infinite Empire 35,000 years ago, in a cave on Antmuel VI, a rocky planet in the Chopani sector. A Gree-funded archeology team headed by Doctor Siarica Aylina-Beskaphoros made the discovery, which includes depictions of several unknown alien species and was possibly painted prior to the development of spacefaring technologies through the galaxy.
Near the entrance of the cave is a wall adorned by more than twenty-two hand stencils, created by placing a hand on the wall and blowing pigment at it.
"These hands are obviously from a humanoid species", declared Dr. Aylina-Beskaphoros, "but they are also bigger than a human's hand - whoever inhabited this place was either bulkier or taller than the average human. Furthermore, it looks like these hands had claws, or at least did not trim their nails very often. Some of the prints are human-sized, and imprinted over larger hand stencils, which could either indicate humans, near-humans, or children were part of the group."
The cave, which the team noted seemed like a maze of individual rooms, features many creatures of various shapes and sizes in its artwork. Several animals have distinctive bands around their backs and bellies, which may suggest farming or ritual traditions.
Other paintings are more mysterious, such as the large, blackened drawing pictured below.
Many objects - mostly pottery, but also a few fossilized bones - were found around this intriguing painting that depicts various creatures and geometric figures. All the surroundings of this painting had been darkened with charcoal, immediately drawing all attention towards the red figures. Unfortunately, the painting was executed on a stone bedding affected by stylolite, a pressure dissolution feature that frequently has the appearance of wavelength, causing irreversible damage to the pigments on the wall.
Many areas of the cave were collapsed, and the structural integrity of the area seems compromised in more than one place. A full scan of the accessible parts of the cave has been done, and several samples of potteries and fossilized bones have been recovered for further analysis.
WEEMELL SECTOR NODE -- A council of the Zhellic Ecclesiastyâs most senior clerics, legislators and academics has been convened under the joint chairmanship of the Vicar of Risma, Sonus XIII, and the Vicar of Csil, Judex, to revise the body of canon law currently governing the Ecclesiasty and its followers across the galaxy. The meeting, which is to take place in the Most Holy Palace of Csil on Loedorvia II, was ordered by a joint proclamation of the High Synod, and was opened by His Holiness, Grand Vicar Cronus IX.
âIn the name of The Thirteen, I open this conclave to those Faithful gathered here in the spirit of Csil to reform our ancient canon law to reflect modern needs. By the grace of Ziysan, the Ecclesiarchy is stronger today than it has been for thousands of years,â said His Holiness to the gathered members of the council.
âLet us, together, remind all descendants of the ancient Zhell that they are stronger together and under the auspices of the Gods, and that the Holy Faith stands with them and all who believe."
The rare gathering of ecclesiastical dignitaries, known formally as the Most Holy Ecumenical Council of Loedorvia, has attracted followers of the Ecclesiasty from across the Galaxy. Key parts of the proceedings are to be broadcast over the HoloNet.
âMay we be imbued with knowledge, wisdom and a reverence of The Thirteen as we proceed with this most sacred task,â said the Vicar of Risma, Sonus XIII, in his opening remarks to the Council. âOn this day we begin the process of studying our canon law afresh and reformulating it in contemporary terms. However, we shall never forget that the inherent truths of the Faith, the truths which will guide us at this Council, are as old as the stars themselves.â
