TOONG'L SYSTEM - A deep space patrol encountered and destroyed an armed Correllian transport affiliated with the Rebellion beleaguered in the Calamari sector.
Responding to an alert from a deep space patrol operating in the Toon'l system of the Jubilar sector, Imperial Navy forces have discovered the remnants of a pitched battle in space. The combatants included the vessels of the deep space patrol and Rebel elements seeking to escape the Calamari blockade. The patrol destroyed a Corellian CR90 corvette and several escort fighters. All the vessels of the patrol were, regrettably, also destroyed.
While the loss of the vessels of the patrol is a sacrifice for the families of the crews, pilots and officers who went down with their vessel, the Imperial Navy considers the battle a success. With the Rebellion being vastly outnumbered - due to the Empire having vast numbers of loyal volunteers in their ranks, while the Rebellion numbers a handful of malcontents - such even-numbered casualty figures are a clear sign the Empire remains ascendant. Furthermore, the battle is evidence that a Rebel attempt to break through the blockade through a 'back door' was discovered, and measures will be taken to block the leak.
According to the Imperial Security Bureau (ISB), the attempted escape from the Calamari sector may also be evidence that the Rebellion is in turmoil and small groups are deserting the Rebellion and opting to slip away into obscurity in the Outer Rim. These individuals would seem to prefer the life of a fugitive to the fate of certain death that awaited them were they to remain with the Rebellion.
Deep space patrols have been dispatched to numerous systems in the Jubilar and Shadola sectors. These sectors lie between the Calamari sector and the hyperlanes of The Slice, where the Rebellion could attempt to escape from the blockaded sector. Meanwhile drills continue to take place in regional locations such as the Lantillian system, in order to prepare Imperial pilots to do their just duty in defense of the Empire.
