Featured Article - Year 18 Day 4:
The Raxxa System is one of the seven systems of the Kuat Sector. The Raxxa System first came under the Imperial eye fairly late in the Galactic Empire's history. The system, from a aesthetic point of view doesn't have much to offer. Perhaps because of its low interest from Imperial enemies and its adjacency to the Kuat Drive Yards, the Empire decided to make it the home of one of its most powerful fleets; The 2nd Imperial Fleet. The Raxxa Sytem itself is comprised of three planets, none of which are very habitable. Raxxa (I) is an extremely cold and barren planet with a toxic atmosphere, and Raxxa (II) & (III) are gas giants. The Imperial Throne not wanting to waste any system resourcefulness decided to use Raxxa (I) as a base of operations for its 2nd Fleet. (more...)
Quote of the Month
<%ISB-MGEN_Tate> Honestly if it's not about the work, it's about the perceived prestige that comes with the job. But honestly none comes with either, unless you're the Director.
<%ISB-MGEN_Tate> So prestige is a lie.
<%ISB-MGEN_Tate> Seele is a lie.
<RCT_Widom> Wait II is data analysis?
<%ISB-MGEN_Fish> Seele has enough prestige from all his other titles and positions :P
<.Lord_Seele> This is true. I was never here, and have been a figment of your imaginations this entire time.
<RCT_Widom> That doesn't sound bad
- "Greatness is not a stationary pinnacle. It is not some solid foundation one which one may plant an intrepid flag and then cease all labors for having conquered the goal. No, greatness is achieved again and again in a perpetual hunt for excellence. Each time excellence and greatness are captured, they slip once again out of grasp like an elusive fey, demanding to be caught yet again. It takes no less than an Imperial to courageously embrace the tantalizing dilemma. Listen then, and recognize that you are an important part of the whole, exerting your will into existence; your efforts are writing the pages of history. Be encouraged that in many ways, across vast regions of space, Imperials are always advancing the standard."

"Prisoners of War Executed"
Posted by: Elvira Falston on Year 18 Day 1
CORELLIA (SECURITY) - Earlier this week the Imperial Security Bureau officially acknowledged the mass execution of thirteen prisoners whose trials concluded in the past month. Amongst them were several noteworthy individuals, such as the Krath Lord Xel Novastar and head of the Pentastar Alignment, Marcus Nightcloud. The bulk of prisoners were convicted for their participation in the Rift Alliance, but two amongst them were fugitives from the Freedom Warriors organisation that was disbanded last year after a succesful operation by Imperial Intelligence took out their leadership.
The official report further fed the speculation that the recent return of Frezt Raleigh as head of the Krath Dynasty was the result of Aubec's forced resignation due to the many embarrassments the government suffered under his rule in the past year. After suffering a catastrophic defeat at the hands of the Tresarians, the Rift Alliance also lost one of its most prominent members with the departure of terrorist organisation Death Watch, who entered an alliance with the despised Zann Consortium. The revelation that one of his closest allies was in league with the organisation that has sabotaged the Krath government in the past made many question Aubec's ability to lead and the desperation with which he sought out members in an attempt to lend the Rift Alliance credibility as a strong organisation.

"From the ashes of war, seeds of peace"
Posted by: Guinar Ndengin - Faction: Galactic Empire
'Date: Year 17 Day 274 Onboard the Super Star Destroyer Imperious in system Zamael (-30, -25).
Deafening revelries on the streets of both Falleen and Coruscant today, celebrating the newly forged peace treaty between long time adversaries the Falleen Federation and the Imperial Union.
All throughout the day the atmosphere had been electric as large crowds gathered, eagerly anticipating an official statement from the Imperial Palace. When finally the holoscreens lit up, showing the Imperial Union Executive Council together with their Falleen Federation counterpart, an expectant silence fell over the restless crowds. As Emperor Ndengin announced there would be peace between four prominent nations, the pent up tension found earnest release in jubilant cheers.
The Emperor articulated his joy to see this long negotiated peace come to fruition: "It's been many long years that the Falleens and our alliance have been in a state of war. We've been fortunate enough to see that war go cold for quite some time, but it's always a time for celebration when diplomacy prevails and hostilities end as we find common ground and pave the way to peaceful coexistence - and perhaps even a close friendship down the road."
Signing the treaty, King Jado Dur`rik had similar remarks. "The anticipation has been an extended circumstance, it has not been easy by any means, yet worth the investment. The crucial factor is that all parties refused to give up, recognizing the importance of peace to our citizens and the economy."
