IMPERIAL CENTER - Imperial Intelligence reports having intercepted schematics for the refitting of a Mon Calamari Star Cruiser towards military command capa- bilities. The Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR) dismisses the possibility of a Mon Calamari uprising.
According to the Imperial Intelligence report, released to the public today, a particular Mon Calamari cruiser is being refitted with combat naval command capabilities. The cruiser in question allegedly carries the unimaginative title 'Home One'. Such command capabilities would allow subordinate vessels to more accurately attack enemy vessels. The report is suggestive of potential revolt by the Mon Calamari people.
COMPNOR dismissed the possibility, arguing that the Mon Calamari have no cause to rise up against the Empire, and that their shipyard facilities are safely in Imperial hands.
"There are no dissidents on Mon Cala," COMPNOR spokesman Prop Agandist told HNN reporters.
"The Mon Calamari are a docile and pacific people, who have every reason to be grateful for Imperial administration of their world and shipyards," Mr. Agandist added. "The rumors that Imperial Intelligence, in their dutiful but alarmist vigilance, are spreading are doubtlessly of rebel origin. The rebels would like nothing better than to turn aliens who have no reason for revolt and every reason for servile gratitude, against the Empire."
"It is nothing but a devious ruse, and we should not fall for it."
