VASCH SYSTEM - The war droids responsible for an attack on an Imperial peace mission yesterday have struck again. The targets were TIE Bombers loaded with medicines and foodstuffs bound for the beleaguered Vasch system. To the desperation of the innocent civilians on the planet, the bomber craft were lost.
Fortunately, a separate mission to re-engage with local leaders escaped capture by bounty hunters, aiming to capture and ransom the Imperial ambassador. While the mission was thwarted, the ambassador was able to escape her shuttle in an escape pod, and is currently recovering aboard the resort liner Coral Vanda on Pantolomin, near Coruscant.
The Bounty Hunters defeated in this attempt had been previously engaged to hunt down the war droids, a task at which they clearly proved to be faithless. The Imperial Navy is considering ceasing bounty-hunting contracts. One naval officer, preferring to remain off the record commented:
"We don't need that scum."
Meanwhile, the efforts to bring the Arkanis sector back into the fold seem to be meeting with more difficulty than had previously been expected. Thankfully, the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR) explains why this is a silver lining:
"The longer the beleaguered worlds of the Arkanis sector suffer without the benevolence of the Empire bringing law and order to their surfaces, the more they become a display piece for why the Empire is a galactic necessity," COMPNOR spokesman Prop Agandist told HNN.
