Greetings to the citizens of Black Sun and our viewers across the galaxy. My name is Cynthia Kappa and you are watching the Black Sun News Network. Today, we are proud to bring you an exclusive report on the recent turmoil shaking the Krath.
Earlier this week, Black Sun struck a decisive blow against its enemies in the Krath. Kagurazaka Yoi, CEO of Minos-Mestra Munitions and Black Watch operative, sabotaged the Krath's war efforts when she revealed how easily Black Sun was able to penetrate their security. She provided access codes to Black Watch agents and deactivated security measures on Minos-Mestra Munitions materials, allowing them to make away with goods worth approximately 70,000,000,000 credits on the market, a large portion of which consisted of Heavy Battle Armour. Vigo Banquo Knox has indicated that those suits will be repainted and distributed to citizen militias currently operating in Krath territory to free themselves from tyranny and oppression.
Along with the armour, large stockpiles of weapons, munitions, and explosives were seized. Black Watch agents scoured the Minos-Mestra storage facilities with ruthless efficiency and left them barren as a small fleet moved the equipment to more secure locations. One agent stood in front of stacked storage containers waiting to be loaded onto a freighter, saying "This operation far exceeded our expectations. We have called in more ships because we ran out of room." Among the items acquired were a sizeable collection of Merr-Sonn Mark II Repeater Blaster Cannons and energy shields. BSNN was unable to find anyone willing to comment on the eventual fate of these valuable pieces.
Pundits across the galaxy have begun to question what this means for Krath's position in the Galactic Alliance. The New Republic has been a staunch supporter of their allies, despite the continued mismanagement of resources, security failures, and lack of meaningful contributions. They will undoubtedly continue to pledge their unwavering friendship and aid to the beleaguered Krath, but anonymous sources have suggested that the New Republic is losing patience. They already refuse to provide the blueprints for their restricted technology to Krath manufacturers.
If the Krath continues to invite its enemies into its ranks and find them more capable than those who are loyal, one must wonder how long the Galactic Alliance can trust them with anything.
Whatever may transpire within the ranks of the Galactic Alliance, it is a great day for all peoples of the galaxy who support peace, law, and order. This has been a Black Sun News Network special report. Cynthia Kappa signing off.
After political tensions turned into full out war as thousands of droids took to public streets and distance battlegrounds to fight. Sentients who supported both sides fought alongside the droids and helped steer their side to victory. As the day of battle came to an end, it was Twilight Foundation that became victorious. Burnt frames of all droid types litter the streets of many worlds, but our reporters reached out to Alejandro Brotingo for comments.
"As I have said all along, GenSci is to blame for all our problems! They are corrupt and evil." Alejandro said before we got a word in.
"But Alejandro, what of reports that famed scientist Niko Gen was found murdered today? Assassin Droids were spotted fleeing the scene!"
"Ha. The assassin droid blueprint was released to the galaxy. You can't tie that to us! Could have been anyone." Brotingo retorted, before adding on. "The liars at GenSci Institute can never be trusted again! Their facilities will be torn down and their agents prosecuted. Their R0-L0 droids have gone rogue! Those fiends simply let their legions loose onto the galaxy... our agents made it just short of stopping them at the mainframe at GenSci HQ. Sad!"
We will continue to cover this galaxy-wide feud that seems to have calmed for now.. but this can't be the end.
KrathNet Press Release: Shesharile 3
Earlier today, the Krath Empire issued a public statement regarding the outcome of the deep space expedition in the Shelsha sector. A large group of rogue elements known as âMangy Mynocksâ was using the local asteroid fields as a base of operations from which they would assault unwary trade vessels moving across the frequented trade routes of the nearby Krath space. The majority of these attacks were aimed at lone freighters used by small-scale businesses to supply their goods to the Vasuuli system as well as the Neimodian Purse Worlds. These strikes were given little priority until the attackers managed to successfully assault a BFF-1 Bulk Freighter, the KMS Erubius. The Erubius was tasked with delivering building materials to assist with the development of the peripheral Krath sectors. It is reported that pirates boarded the ship and disposed of the crew by jettisoning them into space.
Shortly afterwards, the Qel-Droma Assembly began taking interest in the threat to the Empireâs security, sending several ships to map out the region and pinpoint the source of the bandit attacks. Several weeks ago, the location of the base was finally confirmed to be deep in the center of the seemingly abandoned Shelsha sector. The Lord Protector himself took part in the subsequently planned ambush on the unsuspecting bandit forces hiding inside an asteroid field. Selecting several flights from the Qel-Dromaâs arsenal, Gryjiss and some of Krathâs most capable soldiers set off to Shelsha to lay waste to the Mynocks once and for all. One of the soldiers accompanying him on this trip was none other than Dahn Vassic, a veteran soldier hailing from the Resistance, who had decided to throw his lot with Krath shortly beforehand. To reward him for his exemplary behavior in the field of battle, Lord Imperator Talak Kasra has decided to award Vassic the title of âWarden of the Northâ associated with the leadership post for the OriâRamikade, the Mandalorian corps of the Holy Krath Legion.

The following battle was described as âshort and brutalâ, with the bandits taking heavy losses from Krath pilots leaving the Legion Navy unscathed, save for minimal damages to individual strike craft. After a hasty uncoordinated retreat on the Mynocksâ side, the Imperial fleet plundered the asteroids used by the bandits as loot caches, retrieving most of the stolen supplies. Once the asteroid field was wiped of bandits, Lord Protector Gryjiss ordered a second strike at the remains of the Krath incursors, who had decided to escape to their back-up base located only several parsecs away. The second engagement resulted in total victory for the Krath, as well as the repossession of the KMS Erubius. A large part of the shipâs contents were already sold, nevertheless the Bulk Freighter is said to resume its mission immediately after it undergoes repair of the damage received in the naval battles.
âItâs good to see the Assembly ready to respond at a momentâs notice,â the Lord Protector stated in an interview earlier today. âTheyâre willing to pull their weight and protect those in need. I could hardly ask for better men. Thereâs going to be a lot of promotions after I get to my office.â
The Krath Intelligence Bureau is currently leading an investigation regarding the nature of those attacks, as the Mangy Mynocks seemed to target exclusively Krath targets, possibly hinting at a contract issued by one of Krathâs enemies to sabotage the Empireâs commerce.
