CORUSCANT (IMPERIAL CENTER) - in a press conference, COMPNOR spokesman Prop Agandist reassured loyal citizens that the battle at Dellalt was won, and that the police actions against the Rebellion are proving to be successful.
In response to vile rumors and baseless hearsay, Mr. Prop Agandist of the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR) brought comforting words to the Empire's loyal subjects.
The falsehoods in question are spread by a little-noticed outlet on the subspace communications network called 'Alliance "Free" News' (A"F"N), which perpetuates false rumors and terrorist propaganda. Contrary to the manifest reality of the situation, A"F"N purports that the Imperial Navy's police action in the Dellalt System last week was a victory for the Rebellion.
"All lies," Mr. Agandist said.
"There are no rebels at Dellalt."
The action against the Rebellion at Dellalt was part of the Calamari campaign to bring the denizens of the Dac system on the Outer Rim back into the fold of galactic civilization. The two species of that system, the Mon Calamari and the Quarren, have fallen victim to the Rebellion and are presently being forced to supply the terrorist movement with combat-capable starships.
These starships have already been sighted on the front lines. Fortunately, these refitted luxury liners - designed to lay aliens in the lap of voluptuous comfort - are not considered a match against the effective war vessels of the Imperial Navy.
Meanwhile, A"F"N has become the laughingstock of the galactic newsnets. As a channel operating on subspace, it responds to events over a week ago, neglecting the subsequent crushing defeat of the Rebellion in the Turkana system, which brings the Empire much closer to reasserting peace and stability back to the Calamari sector.
