Imperial Navy Remains Ruler of the Hyperlanes

Imperial vessels hold the line against a feeble Rebel attempt to run blockade.

DALCHON SYSTEM - The Imperial Navy beat back two more attempts by the Rebellion to break through the blockade of the Arkanis sector earlier today. The line held at the Dalchon system along the Corellian Run, the Arkanis sector remains isolated from the remainder of the galaxy and from galactic civilization.

Hostilities began with a rebel probe consisting of one corvette and escort frigate testing Imperial resolve in a hyperspace jump zone in the Dalchon system. The Dalchon system, being the main system along the Corellian Run between the Arkanis sector and the Ryloth system, is considered a strategic location necessary to maintain the blockade.

During the encounter, the lone Imperial star destroyer, a Victory II-class star destroyer named the Stalwart, destroyed the corvette and bombarded the frigate with turbolaser fire. A number of TIE fighter squadrons were sacrificed, but Rebel fighters were also brought to final Imperial justice.

With the corvette destroyed and the frigate damaged, the Rebellion - mistakenly sensing a weakness in the blockade - called in reinforcements consisting of a number of assault frigates and a large number of fighter squadrons.

Fortunately, the Imperial Navy also had reinforcements standing by within the system. These were able to intercept the Rebel spearhead.

The Stalwart was lost to a cowardly attack by rebel snubfighters. Thankfully, swift action by the Gladiator-class star destroyer Demolisher unleashed the Emperor's vengeance upon one of the assault frigates and the escort frigate that had first tested the Imperial line.

Suffering heavy losses, the terrorist insurgents were forced to withdraw back into the far reaches of the Outer Rim with the remainder of their forces. Doubtlessly, alien engineers will repair the damaged vessels, allowing them to test the resolve of the Imperial Navy in the future.

In the aftermath of the attack, tactical analysts aboard the Demolisher assessed considerable expertise on the part of the Rebel commander, but the newly-minted commodore of the Imperial forces (name redacted to protect the commodore's kin from Rebel reprisals) proved to have fresh training from the Prefsbelt IV naval academy that still proves to be the best training ground in the galaxy.
