Republic Soldiers on Geonosis

June 2, 2012

Sabrina Xalim reporting…

Commander Deadbolt and Sabrina Xalim on Geonosis

Republic Troopers are combing the surface of Geonosis today after an alleged attack on one of their Venetor-Class Star-Destroyers caused escape pods full of soldiers to be jettisoned prematurely. In charge of the rescue and recovery operation is Alpha Commander C-5940 “Deadbolt,” who graciously set aside some of his time to talk to reporters. Commander Deadbolt said the origins of the attack were under investigation, but wouldn’t rule-out an attack by Imperials.

Geonosis is an arid world home to the insect-like Geonosians. Constantly bombarded by solar radiation, most life exists in massive underground cavern-systems. There is little life on the surface itself. Located in the lower Outer-Rim in the Arkanis Sector, Geonosis’ close neighbor includes the equally inhospitable world of Tatooine.

Surface of the planet

More curious than the “premature” ejection of “escape pods” full of soldiers however is the presence of such a large republic warship so far in the southern reaches of the galaxy. Commander Deadbolt refused to comment on the mission the warship was undertaking when it was “attacked,” citing operational security.

Is this just a routine rescue of soldiers mistakenly jettisoned during an attack, or is the Republic after someone else on the surface of Geonosis. Someone… or something?

Reporting live from the Arkanis Sector, I’m Sabrina Xalim.

    ((Not to completely rain on this article. The build for the Sim is not complete, there is no government or even roleplay here yet. Sorry, we should have put up a sign. Not to mention, TCT do not represent the new Troopers taking control of the planet… Nor does Deadbolt…))

      ((It may have been written too early, although, there is no need of a local government to play a lost escape pod in a desert an its rescue team. You’re welcome to make us a sign whenever you’ll be ready 🙂 ))

    They are not Republic Soldiers, they are members of TCT, which is it’s own Military Force based on Kamino.

      Thank you for your input, however I double checked the interview and they clearly indicated they were Republic Military.

    Sabrina Xalim :

    That may be the case but he’s the Republic Minister of Defense. He would know if they are Republic Soldiers or not. I think that makes him more qualified then whoever you spoke to.
