KUAT SYSTEM – With the Empire determined to quash the rebellion and lawlessness in the Arkanis Sector and elsewhere, Kuat Drive Yards (KDY) has announced that it shall ramp up production on capital ships.
Before the rebellion and lawlessness that has plagued the Arkanis Sector to get any further out of hand, or spread to more civilized parts of the galaxy, the Empire has requisitioned new capital ships from Kuat Drive Yards, including Imperial-class Star Destroyers. These will match the already anticipated Raider-class corvettes, which had already been announced to be in production.
Malcontents and dissenters insinuate this to be a sign of a destabilizing galaxy, arguing that the necessity for these craft suggests worse things to come. The Empire has disproven their insinuations by rounding up said malcontents and dissenters and sending them to the spice mines of Kessel. Had they been smart enough to divine the future, they would have seen the Imperial Security Bureau (ISB) coming for them.
KDY’s announcement comes on the heels of increased pressure for the Empire to deploy capital ships to the Arkanis Sector, despite that sector’s Sector Group Admiral assuring loyal citizens that these will not be necessary.
Nevertheless, alongside the announcement rumors emerge of more roguish and villainous craft appearing along trade routes connected to the Arkanis Sector.
Furthermore, reports suggest that the ship yards at the Mon Calamari and Quarren homeworld, Dac, are working overtime to put capital-scale warships into the hands of the rebellion.
"All lies," a spokesman for the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR) told loyal HNN readers. "There are no rebels on the Mon Calamari Homeworld." (ref).
