Trade Ship attacked in Mos Entha

March 5, 2012

Reporters of the Galactic News went in Mos Entha, Tatooine, to cover an attack in the city.

Wreckage in the Alliance outpost

A trade ship of the Outer Rim Trader Smugglers Alliance (ORTS) was attacked while taking off in the spaceport city of Mos Entha, Tatooine. The captain Garm and all his crew were killed during the explosion of their modified YT-2400 light freighter. Furthermore, the spices of the cargo burnt, spreading toxic fumes around in the city.

Wandering in the vicinity the Alliance outpost is currently discouraged, and several members of the organisation are still trapped in the building. Emergency channels have been opened for medical assistance and a reward was offered for information.

The traffic resumes in the spaceport

The alliance having recruited several new members in recent days, including most of the crew of the downed ship. It’s believed one of the newcomers betrayed the ship, maybe hired by an opponent faction. The attacker used “missiles” or other “flashy things” to do the damage.

Whoever did it, a trading ship attacked by missiles in the midst of the town may hearten the debates for the City mayor election going on.

    Other flashy things? Hope it wasn’t a shiny medallion, or we would all be in trouble.

      They could have been the silentiums either… I mean, why would anyone attack a trading company? Unless they joined a faction, making themselves targets to their enemies…

        In all honesty it may be the fact of who they trade to. A cut off of supply to the enemy is not uncommon, even if two factions share the same trader.

        But nobody has the right to attack a company just because they trade with the faction’s enemy it doesnt mean that they are allied or something…

    You assume they care about rights. This would be a tactic to deter trading to the enemy. By either attacking the traders out right or hiring someone else to do it, which shows either they trade with them or die, or the route is too dangerous to trade in.
