IMPERIAL CENTER (CORUSCANT) - Reports on the galactic newsnets are carrying a report of a hit-and-run space battle in an unnamed location, leading to the failed assassination of an Imperial admiral.
The report, which includes no information of the alleged date or location of the alleged attack, purports to be a rebel victory. This rebel victory is purported to be due to the loss of a Victory-class star destroyer and the subsequent escape of the rebel ships, despite the failure of the assassination attempt.
The Imperial Navy denies the accuracy of the report.
A spokesman for the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR), Mr. Prop Agandist, assured HNN that this was merely propaganda and that the Imperial Navy has no recent reports of patrols with two Victory-class star destroyers being attacked in this fashion.
"All lies," Agandist said.
"There are no rebels in Imperial-held space."
"This is nothing but cheap tricks by rebel slicers on the Outer Rim. It is obvious even from the footage that the rebel slicers could not even use real models in their footage and instead resorted to inexpensive datapad generated imagery."
Meanwhile, the Imperial Navy reports that all is quiet on the Savareen front, where the Navy is maintaining a blockade against the crime wave happening in the neighboring Arkanis Sector.
"The rebels are desperate for good news, and so they created it themselves", Agandist explained. "The Arkanis sector is successfully contained, the rebels are no more than a pathetic faction of criminals who cannot even hold their own against the real criminal element of the Arkanis sector. It would be sad if they were not heinous terrorists."
