The fleets of Turkana and Ralltiir raid Imperial bases
This news has had repercussions throughout the Empire, and the entire Kwymar Sector has rebelled and given total support to the Alliance Cause. This is not without its risks, as the Alliance leadership is concerned about potential reprisals, and while the Mon Calamari have contributed a large number of converted warships to the emerging rebel fleet, in many locations the meagre stock of civilian and trading starships lack the firepower to even deal with an Imperial cruiser, let alone any of the capital warships that are even now looking to suppress any world that shows anything other than total acceptance of Imperial law.
Taking losses from illegal warships
Worse still, recent intelligence reports are much more frightening. The existence of the DEATH STAR project casts a shadow of fear across the entire galaxy, although it is not known where this battlemoon is being built. While its final weapon systems are unknown, the test firing of a small prototype super-laser on Toprawa has been seen to easily destroy a Star-Destroyer in orbit, and the final weapon system for the DEATH STAR is said to be much more powerful. Bothan spies have found that huge amounts of material and funding have been diverted to a secret projects near Kessel and also to the prison world of Despayre. Listening posts in the Cron Drift have also seen a marked increase in freight traffic to both systems, suggesting that this could be where the project will be completed.
Charging an Imperial Star-Destroyer
However, Alliance High Command currently lacks the fleet firepower to undertake a assault on this scale. In the meantime, several tasks must be attempted, and the disruption of Imperial supply lines is a key goal. The Liberty and her task force have been dispatched to the Corporate Sector with orders to seek and destroy unprotected Imperial interests in the region. Mustafar is also vulnerable to raiding forces and is a good target for a starfighter strike from Polis Massa, and Bothuwai is near to open rebellion, although several resistance groups have recently been slaughtered by the Emperor in retaliation for information leaks.
Elsewhere in the galaxy entire corporations have sided with the Alliance, the Yutrane-Trakata plant at Doniphon, and the Koensayr facilities on Ralltiir are probably the best suppliers of war materiel. The call to arms has been heard and volunteers are joining the army ranks daily, though that alone may not be enough. The Force must be with us for the final confrontation, and the Rebellion has lacked a Jedi champion since Galen Marek. To that end, Bail Organa has secretly tasked his daughter with tracking down whatever remnants of the Jedi may still exist.
The Force must be with us for the final confrontation...
