Artistic rendition of Grand Moff Tarkin (original here)
FARSTINE SYSTEM - Following yesterday evening's victories over the treasonous rebels at Farstine station in the Ryndellian Sector, the navy remembers Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin.
Despite the tragic loss of Tarkin in a shuttle accident at the Tallaan Imperial Shipyards, his influence is still felt throughout the Imperial Navy. That influence is such that fleets are deemed capable of operating even without the physical presence of a fleet commander.
"When that escort frigate was bearing down on us, it was as if I knew that Grand Moff Tarkin would have wanted us to prepare for engineering operations," Captain Keohane of the Victory-class Star Destroyer Despot told reporters. "And so I ordered my repair crews to stand by. Sure enough, we took fire from both that Nebulon off the bow, as well as that pesky corvette off our port."
"Thankfully, the spirit of the Grand Moff was with us that day, or I don't know what would have happened."
Thankfully indeed, loyal readers, as the Imperial Navy are all that stand between the civilized Core worlds and the anarchy that is besetting Outer Rim places like the chaotic Arkanis Sector.
