Rebels Mount Lighting Raid on Farstine Station

Rebel fighter bombing run on the VSD Corrupter

FARSTINE SYSTEM - The rebel warlady Admiral Theia attacked an Imperial space station in the Farstine sector today. Her forces attacked swiftly, using a precise in-bound hyperspace vector to attack the heavy attack line that the Imperial Navy had guarding the station. The battle proved indecisive and the rebels withdrew, presumably back to the Ryndellia system.

Attempting to make further gains along the Triellus Trade Route, Admiral Theia stuck out from her temporary lair in the Ryndellia system today, attacking the Farstine System. With an Imperial heavy attack line guarding the sector, her efforts were met by a close defeat. After the destruction of her main attack vessel, which treacherously used a hyperspace trick to come in behind the attack line, her forces decided to withdraw rather than face heavy casualties.

Theia's attack comes two weeks after her previous attempt, and three weeks after she led a sneak attack on the peaceful station in the Ryndellia system. Thus far, her campaign - while presently stalled due to the courageous stalwartness of the Imperial Navy - represents the rebellion's only serious attempt to compromise the blockade of the Arkanis sector headquartered the Savareen sector.

The surprising aspect of this battle was the size of Admiral Theia's fleet. Previously, her fleet had included only small vessels and few, if any, snubfighters. Her forces deployed in this battle numbers a single assault frigate (destroyed) and two escort frigates, as many corvettes, and a dozen fighter-bomber squadrons. It is due to the foresight of the Imperial Navy that a heavy attack line consisting of four star destroyers (two of the Victory-class and two of the Gladiator-class, that the Farstine system remains safely in Imperial hands. Had the system fallen, the inhabitants would likely have been massacred as the inhabitants of the Ryndellia space station are reputed to have been.
