Kessel Gate: The asteroid in the Kessel sector known as the Gate was seized by the planetary government due to tax issue with the Gate’s original investor Kaelinn X. A trial is still planned, but the authorities already started to invest in the asteroid’s renovation. According to Sergeant Major Po Vexe, the government understood this asteroid was an important stop and military position for the planet.

The Lower Hangar

A new lower hanger with a repair facility and an adjacent duty-free shop and an alchemist shop have been set to attract the travellers. The rebuilt is financed by Kessel. Expectantly, they will be refunded by the income of this facilities and the asteroid’s own industry. It indeed has a droid factory and yet closed mines. The mines are currently infested by large bugs despite the efforts voluntary spacers had made to chase them away.

The Rocket Down level

In the upper area of the asteroid still stands the Rocket Down cantina. It’s now surrounded by decorations and small garden. Also a new club, the StarLight, was set up to relax in security. All travellers and businessmen are welcome if they respect the Kessel laws.

A reporter of the Galactic News Network went to the CIS meeting in Zonama Sekot.

A meeting of the CIS summed up to a discussion between Kaelinn X from Kessel Gate, Salene Lusch and Flint Mokeev from Zonama Sekot.

Salene Lusch regreted most organision would be stay-at-home or were not open enough to others. However, Zonama Sekot would send an emissary along with Kaelinn or mandate her to talk in their name in this travels.

Sleyheyron Running At Optimal Capacity

September 9, 2013 Comments off

GNN reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide visited the Odominic controlled Sleyheyron shipyards.

Sleyheyron Shipyards

Sleheryon System: The shipyards owned by the Odominic Hutt Clan, headed by Issulla the Hutt are operating at full capacity. A large space station is at the center of the activity providing room and activities for workers and visitors alike. The 360 degree view allows a complete overlook of the activity taking place in orbit. Visitors though are advised to make themselves known upon arrival and contact station managers before docking due to the indiscriminate automated security systems which have a tendency to shoot first and ask questions later.

As for the shipyards themselves, they are outfitted with the latest and cutting edge shipbuilding technologies. The facilities are equipped to build stock to custom vessels of about any size from yachts to capital ships ranging in price from 250,000 credits to several hundred million. Most of the ships being built currently were based off imperial star destroyer designs but because of shipyards standards the customer names are confidential. Because of the efficiency of the shipyards, ships can be produced in record times, from just a few weeks to several months.

Exploring the cantina with allies of the Odominic

The space station will also be a center place for business and other business for the Odominic clan and its allies, which include members of the CIS and other Hutt clans. However, even though a meeting hall has been set up for Issulla the Hutt she will still be holding court on Kessel Gate for the foreseeable future. Other facilities are included to give traders and other visitors a chance to relax or conduct business and in the future special events may also be held there.Overall the shipyards were impressive to see and for those looking to do business with the Hutts, are in the market for a new ship, or need someplace to set up trades, the Sleheyron Shipyards are the place to be.”

Hutt business at Odominic Night

August 31, 2013 Comments off

A correspondent of Galactic News Network attended in the Odominic Night in Kessel Gate.

Again a large crowd gathered at the StarLight in Kessel Gate to do business with the remnants of the mighty Hutt Council. In attendance were Issulla Odominic and Rolga Bareesh.

Xii addressing to the Hutt

The first speaker of the night was Magus the hutt’s Majordomo, Xi’i. She addressed the Council on behalf of Magus with a proposition to have diplomatic relations between the hutts at Kessel Gate and those on Nar Shaddaa. Xi’i went on to say “He wishes to do so because he would like to see the hutts united once more.” Issulla the Hutt responded favorably to the proposition saying “It is the desire of Odominic for us hutts to be united, only peace between hutts is profitable.” Xi’i then said they intend to present the offer at the next hutt night on Nar Shaddaa as well, and set up a meeting between Issulla and Magus to talk more of this business further.

Sharizar Stormfrost

The next speaker was a regular to the scene, Captain Sharizar Stormfrost of the Crimson Talon Pirates. who seemed to be giving an update of her recent exploits to the Council, Listing off ships her and her crew had acquired, credits along with other loot, and giving the hutts their share. on one final note, the Capitan mentioned their next run will be in the worlds outlying the core. So this reporter recommends staying out of that sector for awhile.

Zandross Lanzius

The next person to take the stage was called up by Rolga the hutt, Zandross Lanzius accompanied by two others. They seemed to have a lot of past tension when they spoke, as Rolga called the man a traitor and asked why he came to the council. Zandross calmed that his child was at the Kessel gate med bay and came to reclaim her. it also became clear this group was after an unknown object and Rolga the hutt has in his possession. after the mighty hutt stated they would never get what they were looking for, the group left the starlight and headed to the med bay to get Zandross’ child.
