Major Battle in Kashyyyk

June 24, 2012

Reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko lowtide traveled to Kashyyyk after receiving word that Trandoshan slave ships had left for that system. A local correspondent, Saviin got an eyewitness view of what transpired.

Trandoshan ships, crewed by New Confederacy personnel, left their system in route to Kashyyyk. Described as “slaving vessels” GNN was informed of the departure and dispatched reporters to the area. Already planet-side, junior reporter Saviin found herself in the center of the battle, when New Republic forces stationed in the Wookiee’s world picked up the invading force and dispatched their forces to engage them, causing a violent battle to occur. Thanks to Saviin, we have a report of the events.

“This is Saviin, junior correspondent for the Galactic News reporting to you live here on Kashyyyk where just moments ago while doing a tour of the local tribal village when all hell broke loose!  It’s a full-scale battle out here in the nearby area.  I am getting word now that this began as an assault led by Trandoshans and members of the New Confederacy here on an apparent slaving mission to capture Wookiees for the slave trade. There was a massive battle between Trandoshan and Confederacy against a number of NGRF Capital ships orbiting the planet above that went on for several hours and continues at this time. It appears that a number of Trandoshan and Confederate ships broke through the barrage of fire above and slipped down to the surface to carry out their plans with the Wookiees. It was not long before clone forces poured in on them here on the surface and this massive battle broke out.

I now think I can hear some lightsabers nearby me. Yes it seems that several Jedi are now on the scene, it looks like from the markings on their armor that these are Jedi from the Enclave on Dantooine. It appears that they have come to aid the clone forces already entrenched in battle against the Trandoshan and Confederate fighters here. This is unbelievable, there is fire everywhere and a few dozen bodies of troops from both sides as well as scores of Wookiees are laid about, littering the battlefield. The battle is intense and I am hoping you can hear me ok because the sound is so loud out here I can barely hear myself as I am reporting this.”

Later Saviin was able to speak with Captain Zach Rodchester aboard the NRSS Fireball. He gave this account “We received a distress call saying the New Confederacy was attacking the planet of Kashyyyk and blockaded it… the NRGF responded immediately with the assistance of Jedi and engaged the  New Confederacy navy while the Jedi handled the group threat… We deployed fighters to assist the Jedi transports and escorted them down to the planet. Rather than disabled and defeated the New Confederacy elected to use Kamikaze tactics against our ships. Luckily I was able to have engineering brace for impact just in time and the shields took the brunt of the impact in what surely would have split the Fireball into two.”

The Republic seems to have kept their positions and the new Confederacy flagship was destroyed before the rest of their fleet left. At this time its unclear the exact extent of the damage to both forces or on the Wookiee people. GNN will continue coverage of the situation. GNN is glad that junior reporter Saviin is safe at this moment and commend her for work under pressure.

    Damn, if it wasn’t for business trips, the battle would have went a much different course upon my arrival on Kashyyyk.

    ((Since when Kashyyyk was similiar to Endor’s surface ,unless someone organized this rp on Endor as the Pictures are clearly from there ,This was unessisary..Why didn’t Kashyyyk use their Sim?))

      (( These isn’t a Kashyyyk sim. We used Endor because it’s similar to certain parts of Kashyyyk. We’re working on a Kashyyyk build for future related events, but currently the only sim with a planet in the Kashyyyk system is Trandosha. ))
