Rebel corvette Slippery Steve in its death throes, under direct fire by the short-range turbolasers of the Demolisher
SVIVREN SYSTEM - The Imperial Navy has located and destroyed a rebel corvette with the impudent title 'Slippery Steve'. Rebels claim, erroneously, to have sacrificed that ship's sister ship, the 'Slippery Sue', but loyal citizens and Imperial Navy analysts know this to be false Rebel propaganda.
The corvette in question, operating alongside a Mark IIB Assault Frigate, was positively identified as the rebel units attempted to ambush an Imperial recon line. The Imperial line was active reconnoitering the Svivren system at the end of the Five Veils Route when it encountered the ambush.
The Assault Frigate was destroyed, but the crews aboard the two Gladiator-class star destroyers - Veermok and Demolisher - were particularly overjoyed to have destroyed this particularly offensive corvette.
"Assault frigates are a serious menace," Senior Captain Mikael Hasselstein of the Veermok told HNN, "but we are especially pleased to be rid of this obnoxious affront to the Empire."
The Slippery Steve was involved with two skirmishes in recent weeks. The first, occurred during a rebel ambush in the Bajic system. While the Empire was victorious, the Slippery Steve managed to elude destruction or capture. The same was true two weeks ago when the same corvette was encountered alongside other rebel vessels in the Vohai system.
Elsewhere, a couple of rebel ships were encountered by a Victory-class star destroyer in the Bajic system. The star destroyer managed to hold off the rebels, while destroying their fighter escort. The star destroyer's captain had recently been promoted from his previous status as a fighter wing commander operating in the Arkanis sector. The rebels in question were operating behind Imperial lines but have conclusively been driven off.
