Ord Vaxal, Callia -- At a private news conference, the leaders of the Zann Consortium government and the Mandalorian splinter-faction Death Watch formally announced the creation of an alliance between the two that has been referred as the "Shadow Dominion."
The leaders stood on a small stage before the galactic press katunda morning waiting for the initial questions or outbursts to pause. Kominiic Greyson Abrams of Zann Consortium explained that the collective would not follow any political agenda, but declined to comment more on the Dominion's structure itself or how long the two groups have been allied.
"All members of the Dominion have agreed to participate in aggressive military actions across the galaxy, overt or otherwise, promoting crime and warfare," said Greyson. Our requirement for entry will be to bring others in based on these principles of conducting such business. In addition, all members of our collective lead the union equally. There is no sole ruler of the Shadow Dominion, only equality. The leadership of both organizations completes the collective council."
"Krath Dynasty has for years utilized the Death Watch to their benefit, but continue to reject us as equals," Peter Max followed as he steps to the podium. "They would rather keep our people as enforcers to attack the Imperial Union and other organizations while they reap the rewards. With Zann, we do not have to deal with businessmen, politicians looking to gain a technological advantage, or anyone else. We've observed Zann simply doesn't care about such frivolous things and if they want to take something, they simply take it. From here forward, Death Watch and Zann Consortium will be taking whatever they want from whomever they please, together.
Sitting silent for most of the conference, Krestviniic Ximaro Jix of Zann Consortium stood before the small audience concluding with a short statement to explain why Zann, an organization known for its refusal to ally, would do so now.
"The Zann Consortium and Death Watch are two organizations rooted in bloodshed, defying laws we don't acknowledge as just; only a symptom of hypocrisy. Together, we band now to restore the galaxy back to its natural order where the only real crimes are absolutism and constraint."
Following the news conference, an unidentified source within the Rift Alliance confirmed that the aligning of the two entities was something they believe meant greater doom for many corporations and conglomerates across the galaxy and urged correspondents to send out galactic wide transmissions warning the public that precautionary measures should be taken to ensure their safety and to prepare for potential attacks across the galaxy on an even larger scale.
An exciting new extreme sports challenge has started on Serroco the past few days. The challenge: The Droid Colosseum. In this challenge waves of T-Series Tactical Droids are pitted against a lone individual to test his or her courage in the face of overwhelming odds and so far, not a single individual has lasted against all waves.
Among the scattered squads of T-Series Tactical Droids waiting to enter the arena, Cybot Galactica CEO and Challenge Coordinator, Mr. Dex Sehrin spoke about this new event: âIt's a combat endurance challenge. Itâs not for everyone. You must prove you are the galaxyâs deadliest warrior.â
Built in secret by Cybot Galactica, the Droid Colosseum recently finished it's initial testing phases and has opened it's doors wide to the public. The Droid Colosseum takes place on Serroco, just over a day away from Cybot Galacticaâs headquarters in the Asher system. Registration is currently open to the general public and will remain so for the next three months. Challengers can join the event at any time, and they will be put in front of up to ten waves of armed droids with only one ionization blaster and enough restraining bolts to capture them all.
âThose droids are set to Stun,â assured Dex Sehrin. âHowever, the battle is really demanding both for your body and your mind. No one has finished the tenth wave, yet,â continued the Nautolan.
The sentient being who has come closest to finishing is the Abyssin Karvainen Kummajainen who was helped by his natural regenerative ability. "The first few waves of droids were an easy task to disable, but not being able to use medical items took its toll after few days of fighting and even a large healthpool did not help in the end," Mr. Kummajainen affirmed.
As of CEO Dex Sehrin, he was stunned by the sixth wave: "Though I couldn't finish all ten waves myself, the adrenaline rush was exhilarating and I can't wait to try it again. I'm going to win this challenge eventually," said he with a big smile on his face.
One of the challengers, Anax Noctru of Byblos Drive Yards, had just defeated a wave of droids when the gates opened for the next wave to attack. The smell of ionized gas filled the fight zone, and several droids soon stood disabled.
Waiting in the wings to step up after Mr. Noctru is Fritjof âThe Bald Manâ Blom. Adrenaline clearly pumping through the Sakiyanâs veins, the experienced veteran of âThe Fightâ merely checked over his weapon and armor before glancing skeptically at the droid masses.
Cybot Galactica is providing all the assets and is currently the only sponsor. Challengers should be able to leave the field with at least their registration feeâs worth of tech. And memories to tell. And bruises. Lots of them.

The vanguard of the Krath fleet stood watch on the outskirts of the Travnin system. Deeper in the system, around the wind-swept Travnin moon, the Krath fleet lay awaiting.
A Crescent-X9 entered the system, slowly manouvring into the direction of the massive Krath flagship, while hailing Travnin space command upon reaching the Krath patrols. "This is the Nebulon Ranger, we are heading for the KMS Krath's Wraith to deliver a passenger. Transmitting identification codes now."
It remained quiet for a while, and then Krath Command opened up a holonet link. "This is not your ship. It belonged to Cay Qel-Droma. Make yourself known!"
Some comm static prevailed but then a strong voice, very familiar to Krath command, blared over the speakers. "This is Lord Frezt Raleigh, returning from a long voyage."
The Krath commander's surprised reaction didn't take too long: "Cleared for entrance of course, Lord Raleigh. Welcome back!"
A few days later the Ruling Council gathered in Kesh Palace, and released the following announcement afterwards to the press:
The reigning Grand Seneschal of the Krath Dynasty Ellias Aubec will be stepping down from his position.
Lord Aubec has had a long career within Krath and is one of the oldest and most experienced statesmen still serving today.
He has led many successful Krath operations throughout the years and was a driving force behind the minting of the Nova Crystal.
Most notable events of last year are the formation of the Rift Alliance and the organisation of the Krath Expo.
The Council of Krath thanks him for his service and his loyalty, and is sure he will continue to be of great value to the Dynasty.
Lord Frezt Raleigh has recently returned from a long and arduous pilgrimage to territories beyond the rim. In Krath's eternal wisdom, he decided Frezt will take up the mantle of leadership once more. Already Grand Seneschal since the formation of the Dynasty in year 8 until his retirement in year 13, he brings the necessary skills and knowledge to the table that are needed to make the colossal Krath empire flourish. Hail to Grand Seneschal Raleigh! May Krath guide you.
