Rebel Insurgency Crushed in Farstine System

Farstine station - strategic location of a thwarted Rebel attack.

FARSTINE SYSTEM - A Rebel attack on a space station in the Farstine system was thwarted by newly deployed Victory-class star destroyers engaged in a blockade of the wayward Arkanis Sector.

The Farstine system, located at the intersection of the Triellus Trade Route and the Five Veils Route, is a choke point for hyperspace traffic in the Trailing Sectors near the Arkanis sector, which is under blockade due to a ruinous crime wave and rebel insurrection. Had the Rebellion been able to subvert the trade station, it would have represented a base of illicit operations, including spice running and human trafficking - key contraband products on which the rebellion remains funded.

After the initial defense of the station, the Victory-class star destroyer, Despot pursued the rebel craft, and was intercepted by an ambush. Fortunately, the ambush failed as TIE fighters were able to successfully screen against the rebels' murderous X-wing fighters.

The VSD Despot fought off the Corellian corvette and escort frigate, and is currently berthed at Farstine station for repairs.

These victories in the Savareen blockade represent a beacon of hope, as the situation in the Arkanis sector continues to worsen. Reports speak of a buildup of fighter craft in the Arkanis sector, and a significant clash seems imminent.
