Tython Updates After Imperial Take Over

October 3, 2012

GNN Reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide spoke with Tython Senator Saphhire Tafo and also received a Tython update from Imperial news.

After her debate on Rori, Senator Sapphire Tafo, who was present by holographic projector since she’s still located somewhere on Tython, was able to answer a few questions before ending the transmission. According to the Senator it seems that most of the battles and conflicts had stopped while the Galactic Empire takes full control of the planet, with almost every government building and important landmark in the hands of imperial troopers. She also stated that several of the Sith occupiers displayed great acts of cruelty against the people. She herself is in an undisclosed location helping the people as she can and trying to stay out of Imperial custody as she continues to stay on Tython to show the people they aren’t abandoned.

She also stated that there was a rebel movement being formed against the occupiers. They had already been able to move some resources before they fell to imperial hands and were able to sabotage some of the military bases before the Empire was able to utilize them. She herself will try to contact the occupying force to see what can be done, but any meetings would have to be conducted where she was safe.

She also had harsh words for the Republic, who like with Coruscant hasn’t made any public announcements as to the fall of Tython or has given any hint of help. At end of the debate, the Republic Defense minister even told Senator Tafo that the Tython cause is low on the list of priorities and they would get some attention once other matters such as Coruscant were taken care of. Senator Tafo argued this was unacceptable especially since the Senate seems to be controlled by a select few who have even alluded that the Tafo should step down as Senator or Tython leave the Republic.

In a heartfelt conclusion this is what she had to say “In this hard time for our people, I want to assure them there is still a hope for a better future and we’re working on it. And I would also want to pay homage to the Jedi of Yavin 4 and their Senator which spontaneously offered to care on he refugees. I hope everyone will be able to meet their family in the best circumstances”.

At this time Tython is under a blockade with the following message being broadcast to non-Imperial space traffic “Unidentified ship this is the Galactic Empire, you have entered into restricted air space be advised we are going to pull you into our star destroyer with the trackter beam for questioning. State your name and the reason for you coming here, if you ignore us or attempt to flee we will shoot you down.“.

On a final note, Imperial news is reporting that Tython Govener Zack Rodchester was killed in an explosion on Dagoboah. There news agency reported that it was believed that the pro-Republic group, Rebel Scum, was behind the terrorist attack but gave no further details.

    It should not come as a surprise to any of us that the Republic’s response has been less than satisfactory. The stubbornness, lack of communication and unwillingness to compromise within the Senate has stymied the war effort from day one. Still, there remains a loyal following and this following will only be restrained by the bindings of argumentative bureaucracy for a certain amount of time.

    Differences between the Senate and the Grand Army must be reconciled before progress can be made. I would encourage our elected representatives to place aside their pride and reach out to our brothers and sisters on Bakura. Unification is the swiftest path to restoring the peace and order that we all took for granted.

    “Their news agency reported that it was believed that the pro-Republic group, Rebel Scum, was behind the terrorist attack but gave no further details.”

    Sounds like a classic line of Imperial slander. Feeding your propaganda through a puppet organization was an admirable attempt at subterfuge but you have once more underestimated our intelligence, Kulith Laan.

    The truth is, my friends, that Admiral Rochester was very likely a victim of ideological persecution of the Sith nature. I suppose that a few will miss him but the war effort shall go on.

      I think you mean, “Few will miss him.”

        A fair assertion.

    Making steps toward the Grand Army was in a bill I drafted for supporting Endor’s moon. Although it became obsolete before being discussed. The chancellor hammering she has the full commandment of the foreign policy and the defence doesn’t help such initiatives from the Senate.

      There is power in the referendum.

    *Grunt reads the article over in his spare time at the barracks, scoffing as he reads the bit about the rebels being behind the attack.*

    “The galaxy’s current state and politics prevent me from denouncing this as Imperial propaganda. Take from that what you will.”
