Admired Admiral Victim of Home Invasion and Abduction: Wife and Children Traumatized

CASSANDER - Retaliating for a recent spate of defeats, Rebel operatives attacked the family home of Admiral Gann of the Cassander Sector, abducting the admiral in front of his family, aides, and household retainers.

The widely-respected Admiral Danard Gann of the Cassander sector fleet was the target of a home invasion and abduction this evening. With little more to protect himself and his loved ones aside from two economy-grade security droids

The band of Rebel fanatics, recently driven from Coruscant, decided that the safe streets of Imperial Center were too great a challenge, and instead opted for a military man's personal home.

The Rebel band was under the strict and ruthless leadership of a Cerean identified as Ko-Tun Feralo, who put her minions in harm's way for her own infamy and to further traumatize the Admiral's family. The band was further aided by a Togruta female who has been identified as [REDACTED], a former [REDACTED], and [REDACTED]. The Togruta was last imaged being carried out on a stretcher.

Imperial forces were able to come to the family's aid, but not before the heinous damage had been done. Officers with the Imperial Security Bureau (ISB) have taken the children into protective custody, where they can be provided with mental healthcare, and reassured that the Emperor's servants will work hard to return their father back to them.

Asked why the Admiral had so few security measures, his courageous wife was able to speak, barely holding her tears in check:

"We didn't think even the Rebellion would attack an off-duty naval admiral in front of his children!" she managed between sobs.

And so this grief-stricken family learns, as do the other loyal citizens of the Empire, precisely how wicked and vicious the Rebellion is.

Thwarted Rebel Attack on Coruscant

The shining ecumenopolis of Coruscant, heart of the Empire, is now in the crosshairs of the Rebellion's vicious designs to sow terror in the souls of the innocent citizens

IMPERIAL CENTER (CORUSCANT) - Vainly attempting to sow terror into the heart of the Empire, Rebel fanatics attack innocent citizens on Coruscant. Loyal Imperial citizens are outraged, and more determined than ever to have the Rebellion put down.

Imperial forces responded swiftly, today, when a small band of Rebel fanatics emerged not far from Coruscant's Alien Protection Zone, and harassed unsuspecting citizens outside of a diner. The local people sighed a breath of relief when the authorities sent in riot-control squads to quell the unrest.

According to Imperial Security Bureau (ISB) agents investigating the defeated Rebel attack, the Rebels were able to do little more than physically assault a few local people.

"When they took my credstick, I thought they were just muggers," one citizen commented. "it wasn't until they asked about another Rebel group that I realized they were terrorists."

According to the ISB, this attack comes on the heels of another similar attack only a few rotations ago, which had not been reported.

"We want to maintain the feeling of security," the ISB agent told HNN, "which means that some things are best kept from the press."

With the Empire ensuring that the only thing Imperial citizens have to fear is fear itself, HNN proudly refuses to publish anything that would shake the trust Imperial citizens have in the Empire. HNN also proudly reports that the previous small-scale incursion was likewise swiftly put down.

The ISB further informed HNN that the tactics employed by the Rebel fanatics serves as further evidence that the Rebellion is in its last throes.

"If the Rebels are forced to gather resources by mugging local passers-by, the end of this insurgency is all but at hand," the agent said, ending the interview.

Leia Organa, Disgraced Former Senator, Accused of Inappropriate Fondling of Alien Underling

Fmr. Sen. Organa forcing herself on Gartogg of Gamorr

TATOOINE - Leia Organa, a disgraced former member of the Imperial Senate, and a leader in the Rebel Alliance is accused of inappropriate physical behavior toward an alien underlings in an associate's.

Leia Organa, beloved icon of traitors and other galactic malcontents, have been shaken in their faith in their erstwhile 'hero', as she now stands accused of forcing herself on the alien underling of a business associate, the late Jabba "the Hutt" Desilijic Tiure.

Organa is accused having forced herself on the Gamorrean guard, Gartogg, after having concluded a business deal with Desilijic Tiure. The two business associates were negotiating the sale of a Wookiee slave at the time of the incident.

Her victim, Gartogg of Gamorr, has bravely decided to come forward, knowing the probable retaliation from Rebel will be severe.

"I was minding my own business, beating some prisoners," Gartogg said through a translator, "when she just reaches over and sticks her tongue down my throat."

Organa's actions interfered with the guard's ability to carry out his duties, and left the Gamorrean psychologically shaken.

"Thankfully her tongue was not long enough to reach very far, but I just feel violated."

Asked why he has decided to come forward, "Someone has to speak out," Gartogg said. "Something has to happen to stop these Rebel former senators feeling like they can just have their way with anyone they please."

Once a member of the Galactic Senate, having inherited the position through nepotism, Organa became involved with the Rebel Alliance and even spent time in Imperial detention after having been discovered trading in classified Imperial intelligence.

Organa has since resigned from the Senate in disgrace, but Gartogg will have to carry the memory of the incident with him forever.

Gamorreans, a matriarchal society, is known for women forcing themselves on their male counterparts, but with courageous individuals like Gartogg, there are hopes that longstanding inequities and exploitation can come to an end.

Empire Unveils New Imperial Naval Academy

Wing Operations 101 at the Imperial Naval Academy

IMPERIAL CENTER (CORUSCANT) - The Empire breathes new life into developing naval combat doctrines at the new Imperial Naval Academy, recently unveiled.

The purpose of the Imperial Naval Academy is to supplement the education of officers having graduated from the Academy on Prefsbelt IV. The new academy is aimed at developing naval combat doctrines to bring a sooner end to the struggling Rebellion, and return peace and stability to the Emperor's galaxy.

Some question the need for such an academy in the wake of a rising tide of more and more officers being recruited into the ranks of the Imperial Navy, and the Rebellion's imminent demise. Some are also finding new careers in the Spice Mines of Kessel for doubting the Emperor's wisdom on this matter. While more and more naval officers are swelling the Imperial Navy's ranks, and the glory of the Empire's victories are beyond question, the Emperor clearly feels that greater professionalism and a stronger central doctrine will be of value. Perhaps his motivation is to instill greater deterrence once the Rebellion has been dealt with.

The Imperial Naval Academy will be gathering some of the most loyal and competent commanders in the Imperial Navy. The first to take up a position within its ranks, aside from the Academy's founder, Moff Mikael Hasselstein, will be Fleet Admiral Wolf Deralisk [Darth Lupine] of the Blood Squadron of the Hirschau sector, whose mastery of the Gladiator-class Star Destroyer is legendary. Other commanders are also swelling the ranks of the Academy, though their names have still to be disclosed.

New Insurgent Craft Identified as Strategic Bomber; Terrorist Intent Manifest

Captured imagery of new MG-100 StarFortress SF-17 strategic bomber

IMPERIAL CENTER (CORUSCANT) - A new insurgent craft has been identified as strategic bomber. The building of such a heavy bomber indicates terrorist intent against civilian life.

New heavy bombers have been sighted among the small starcraft forces of the Rebel insurgency. Imperial Intelligence has identified these bombers as the MG-100 StarFortress SF-17.

The configuration of these heavy bombers expose the insurgency's new strategy for attempting to shake the faith of the Imperial citizenry in the peace and stability offered by the Empire.

In contrast to the TIE/sa bomber or even the TIE Punisher whose ordnance-carrying capabilities are clearly designed to target other warcraft in the service of the Imperial Navy's duty to protect civilian life and open spacelanes, the SF-17 is configured as a strategic bomber. Strategic bombers, unlike tactical bombers like the TIE/sa, are intended as weapons against stationary and defenseless civilian targets.

The development of the StarFortress SF-17 strategic bomber signals the Rebellion's ultimate strategy for their faltering resistance. Since their forces cannot hope to break the military might of the Imperial Navy, they have decided to target civilian targets in the vain hope of breaking civilian support for the Emperor and the Empire.

This new strategy is as doomed as their attempts at piracy and propaganda. The mere development of such a heinous weapon only steels the will of the Imperial citizenry to see their ilk meet Imperial justice and judgement, the delivery of which shall soon be upon them.

Empire Upgrading Corellian Communications Network

Communications satellite over Corellia

CORELLIAN SYSTEM - Drawing on Galactic resources, the Empire has decided to upgrade the communications network of the Corellian system, temporarily making the system unavailable to outside communications.

Demonstrating the Emperor's benevolence to other Core World systems, the administration on Coruscant has authorized the Communications division of the Support Service Branch of the Imperial Navy to upgrade the communications network systems in the Corellian system.

While the upgrades happen, Corellia will be unavailable to direct communications to the outside galaxy, with the only communications being routed through the military channels of the Imperial Navy.

The naval units under Moff Mikael Hasselstein assure the galaxy that all is well with Corellia during this brief period of inconvenience and assure both Corellians and their associates elsewhere in the galaxy that communications normalcy will be reinstated in due course. In the meantime, the military channels are being used to ensure the safety of the system from the threat posed by the Rebel forces of Admiral Theia.

Theia and her terrorist minions have posed an insignificant threat to the peace and security of the Corellian sector, but are projected to soon be rooted out as loyal subjects of the Empire inform the military authorities of the whereabouts of sundry Rebel cells operating within the sector. During the period of constrained communications, civilians are permitted to use military channels to inform the military authorities of Rebel activity and to continue to inform themselves over HNN's broadcasting networks.

Fugitive Former Senator Close to Being Apprehended by Imperial Authorities

Ex-Senator Leia Organa

CORSIN SYSTEM - Imperial patrol lines encountered and destroyed a Rebel transport known to be carrying the fugitive former Senator of Alderaan, the so-called "Princess" Leia Organa. Her capture is believed to be imminent.

Following up on previous Rebel incursions in the Corsin system, Imperial patrols discovered an escorted transport believed to be ferrying the fugitive ex-senator Leia Organa of Alderaan. The transport was destroyed, despite the attempts of its escort vessels to impede Imperial justice.

The escort vessels are reputed to have been under the command of the Rebel militant, Bazi Bier. The patrols took heavy damage, as their crews put the capture Organa ahead of self-preservation. The militant, Bier, took cynical advantage of their proud display of selflessness, destroying a number of Imperial cruisers as they attempted to fulfill their duty to the Emperor and Galactic Civilization.

Organa was instrumental in the destruction of her home world of Alderaan, whose people had entrusted her with their representation in the Imperial Senate. It is reported that she ordered the attack on the peaceful Imperial "Death Star" battlestation as it traversed the system, which forced the station to defend itself against the warlike planet.

Organa came to her position in the Senate through familial nepotism, her father having held the same seat in the Senate before her. In this, she is similar to another fugitive ex-senator, Mon Mothma of Chandrila, whose parents also held powerful seats in government, using their positions to pull the requisite strings to keep power within their families.

Once Organa has been apprehended and brought to justice, it is hoped that the Galaxy can finally leave the nepotist corruption of the Republic to history, and the widows and orphans of the Death Star's never-forgotten crew can have a sense of closure to the tragedy that needlessly left a bleeding wound in their hearts.
