From our correspondent in the Relgim sector
VYKOS SYSTEM - An Imperial Patrol along the Relgim Run hyperroute was ambushed yesterday, but the rebel sneak attack was beaten back.
The insurgent rebels that assaulted the patrol were surprisingly well armed. The ambush witnessed the introduction of a rebel Assault Frigate, a type of vessel never before seen ship in the spinward Outer Rim of the galaxy. The ambushing force further consisted of snub fighters escorting a single Nebulon-B frigate.
The patrol suffered heavy losses due to a few well-placed bombs from the rebel snubfighters. These temporarily disabled both Gladiator-class destroyers. However, the Empire remained victorious and was able to destroy both enemy frigates. The fighter squadroms were either destroyed or dispersed.
Senior Captain Josbu Thake - commander of the patrol - spoke with our correspondent, saying "The cowards dropped out of hyperspace right in front of our forward patrols and tried to use those fighters they are so proud of to destroy us."
Both star destroyers were recovered and are currently under repairs in the Ord Trasi ship-yards and are expected to be fully operational in next few weeks.
After another engagement in the sector last week at Ord Trasi, local citizens have remained uneasy and suspicious of rebel activity. The ambush suggests that their suspicions were not unfounded. The Relgim sector is fortunate to have such loyal and vigilant citizens reporting suspicious activities to their local Imperial Security Bureau offices.
Thanks to the vigilance of these loyal citizens, and the attacks on Imperial naval patrols, the Relgim Sector Group admiralty will adjust its threat assessments.
Captain Thake also expressed his determination to crush the rebellion: "The Empire will never fall to such terrorist and we will hunt them down and find their base of operations, then we will destroy them!! They will pay for the lives that they took Today!"
With determined commanders like Captain Thake on such a personal mission, the Rebellion's days must surely be numbered.
