Bal`demnic (TNN) - Following several weeks of tense skirmishes on the sparsely populated planet of Serroco, Death Watch has officially announced their withdrawal from the planet. This announcement was met by celebration within the Tresario Star Kingdom forces, marking a decisive victory against the self-proclaimed heirs of Mandalorian culture. Tresarian Soldiers can be seen breaking out barrels of local Tresarian liquor, Kahnâs Wraith, as Death Watch transports ascended into orbit.
The conflict began shortly after a scheduled, routine goodwill visit by Tresarian and Galactic Empire forces, where they participated in training exercises, in an effort to bring some stability to the region after months of unrest and shifting political control. Following the training exercise, the Galactic Empire forces returned to Imperial space, while the Tresarian forces remained to continue their humanitarian efforts. TNN reporters were in the sole population center on Serroco reporting on the remainder of the mission when Death Watch forces led by Peter Max were spotted advancing into the Serroco system. Upon receiving word of the impending attack, the Tresarian military resolved to meet them on the battlefield, and defend the local populace from invasion. While the first two days saw Death Watch make several strong strikes against Tresarian forces, the battle quickly changed to the Star Kingdomâs favor.
âIt seems Death Watch felt the best strategy for this conflict was to send their very best soldiers into the battle first,â reported legendary Tresarian Admiral Sir Xyler Athrun Zero, a member of the command staff on the ground with the troops. âWhile this proved to be a challenge at first, our skilled military officers and our overwhelming supply of Cerberus-made battle droids proved to turn the tide.â
Death Watch sought to retain control of the battlefield with reinforcements from the Zann Consortium. Few soldiers were able to aid the mercenary forces however, with territorial issues taking most of Zannâs resources away from Serroco. The lack of coordination, heavy loss of warriors, and lack of reinforcements appeared to have had a detrimental effect on Death Watch.
According to reports from Tresarian military command, nearly 600 Death Watch Mandalorian warriors were killed in action, including several highly trained warriors who died early in the conflict. On Tresarioâs part, the estimated cost of battle droids lost is a little more than eight million credits. Thankfully, few Tresarian officers were wounded, and none were killed, during the battle thanks to skilled tactics. Due to the bravery and valiant courage of those Tresarians, no civilians or non-combatants were harmed during the conflict. Soon after Death Watchâs retreat from Serroco, Tresarian forces held a small vigil to honor the fallen Death Watch warriors, and cremate those that Death Watch was unable to recover.
The battle saw victories for the Star Kingdom beyond simple statistics and casualty lists. One such victory was the rescue of several allied soldiers. As the attack occurred on the heels of a training exercise with the Galactic Empire, several Stormtroopers tasked with final logistical duties were captured by Death Watch in the first wave of attacks. Thanks to the heroic actions of several Tresarian soldiers, one of whom is rumored to be the famed Tresarian hero, Captain Tresario, the Stormtroopers were rescued from behind enemy lines. The soldiers are currently en route to Imperial space to be reunited with loved ones.
As celebrations continue, Tresarian forces are proceeding with a clean up operation under the command of Fleet Admiral Sir Kevin Wolff. The operation is going smoothly, with only slight harassment by retreating Death Watch forces, and an attack by a Mandalorian warrior who has been identified as Anon Drekk of Aliit Vârâcaah. Drekk attempted to ambush Fleet Admiral Wolff before several Tresarian officers fended off his tactically poor attack. Star Kingdom forces are expected to return to Tresarian space after measures have been taken to help protect the citizens of Serroco from counter attacks by Death Watch.
Minister of Military Operations Sir Zeff Traner is reportedly pleased with the results of the operation, though he feels that Tresarian military forces can improve even more in the future. While it is believed that this is not the last time Tresarian forces will face off against the mercenaries, Tresarian military leadership feels confident that the combination of well-trained officers, superior hardware and quick coordination will continue to keep the Star Kingdom safe for the foreseeable future.

Officials from within the Resistance confirm the legitimacy of recent leaks from Mayor Chompins McLoggersâ office shed new light on the Tynna Unknown Signals incident.
Three private documents recently leaked to multiple galactic news agencies by an official inside the mayorâs office confirmed that King Jude Vatz of the Tresario Star Kingdom was physically present when the Invid Order, New Republic, and Resistance task force recovered the first Meridian frigate. Early into the rescue operation, allied pilots reported the presence of a lone A-wing interceptor registered to King Vatz, who ignored all hail and focus scans performed.
Records later recovered from the Meridian showed that King Vatz arrived two days before the Invid Order scouts, yet had offered no assistance to the distressed frigate and had even ignored the Tynnan's call for help sent directly to his ship. New Republic military analysts have suggested that Tresario's allegedly poor record of starship maintenance may have hindered some of the interceptor's systems, forcing the Tresarian King to remain hidden in the frigate's shadow for several days, desperate to remain undetected and avoid being taken prisoner by the bandits. While the task force's pilots were engaging the hostile starfighters and assisting the stranded Tynnan starship, King Vatz's A-wing parted from the frigate's position and fled the system.
An image recorded by the Tynnan frigate has also been verified, clearly showing King Vatz piloting the reported A-wing interceptor.
An after-action report, drafted by taskforce commander Gothar Elensar and presented to Mayor McLoggers upon the operation's conclusion, was also leaked to the press.
"When Invid Order scouts discovered the first stranded Meridian-class frigate in an asteroid field, a call for assistance was immediately dispatched through the joint task force at approximately 0950 on 18.149. A stream of allied starfighter squadrons continuously arrived throughout the next several hours, engaging the growing force of hostile gunboats and starfighters in an attempt to rescue the distressed frigate and its stranded survivors. At approximately 1330 of the same day, the hostile forces had been subdued and the Meridian frigate secured and provided with an escort back to the Tynnani system. This scenario played out two more times for the safe recovery of three frigates at the hands of the New Republic's joint task force, though the fourth Meridian was boarded and captured by the Exchange while the allied task force was occupied with rescuing the third."
The third document indicates the last known locations and owners of the Meridian-class frigates. As indicated in his galactic broadcast three months ago, Mayor Chompins McLoggers expressed the gratitude of all Tynnans by awarding four Meridian frigates to those who came to their assistance. The first and second Meridians were gifted to New Republic officers Vonar Passik and Arco Serle, who donated them to the Invid Order and New Republic, respectively, as a result of the joint task force's success. The third was awarded to Lahasa Fry, who uniquely opted to retain possession of the vessel and add it to his personal collection. Reportedly, he also left his position in the New Republic sometime after, though it is unknown whether this was due to the political pressure faced by his decision to keep the frigate. The fourth frigate, which was stationed at Tynna, was granted to Matt Solomon for discovering and revealing the Tynnani system to the galaxy. Reports of a fifth frigate taken by the Exchange were also considered true by all information agencies.
Representatives from Mandalore announced today that administrators are dissolving the government structure in favor of a more streamlined corporate format.
Established in Year 5 under the leadership of Tyr DeMeer, the Mandalore government provided valuable services to the various Mandalorian Clans and became the symbolic unifying banner of the traditionally dispersed Mando culture. DeMeer's background of service to the Galactic Empire influenced Mandalore's acceptance into the Imperial Union in Year 9, an alliance which fortified the Mandalorian Navy with a significant amount of high technology.
However, the reign of Tyr DeMeer was not celebrated by every Clan and some Mando Houses were resentful of Imperial affiliation. Internal dissent began to grow, even though the Mandalore government withdrew from its military alliance during the Imperial Union reformation of Year 13 and joined the neutral Galactic Concordiate the following year. A dispute over association with the Eidola Pirates ignited the Mandalorian Civil War in Year 15, resulting in the separation of The Death Watch mercenaries. Tyr DeMeer retired from government politics in Year 16, shortly after the separation of the Mando'ade mercenaries which marked the end of the Civil War. He was succeeded by Andrew Panzer of Clan D'ael'mor, who abdicated the position to the current Warrior Eminence Korlan Mereel of Clan Du'trachek on Day 153 of Year 17.
Despite the common purpose of the government, Mandalore appeared to have caused more division between the Clans than unity and modern citizens have since begun to question their identity. With the remaining confederated Clans struggling under the weight of the government's bureaucratic requirements, the Mandalorian High Council has concluded that a return to its paramilitary roots may be in order until the fragmented Clans can discover solidarity once again.
As Mand'alor Mereel stated: "This decision will have no serious impact on our relationship with our allies and nationalised factions, we even believe that this will bring us closer together."
The newly commissioned mercenary company will continue to maintain administrative control of the traditional Mandalorian worlds and Navy.
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.
