    Kuat

    Kuat. That blessed gem of the old empire, heart of the industrial might of the Sith Lords. Once throne of the Imperial Remnant. But now that remnant and its rebel alliance emerged again. To claim their old home and empire. “Steady all, prepare for barrage.” __________________________________________ Rebel Alliance Fleet Command Flagship |Romanova| KDY-Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer Misericordia |30/30| Axial Weapon Upgrade Pocket Dreadnought Upgrade Rebel Alliance Light Defensive Escort: Suppressing Fire |Alexandra| Task Force Experience: Green (1xp) RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Krasnoyarsk |3/3| RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Voronezh |3/3| RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Vladivostok |3/3| RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Sevastopol |3/3| NRE Senth-class Corvette Volga |2/1| NRE Senth-class Corvette Nakhodka |2/1| NRE Senth-class Corvette Voskresensk |2/1| NRE Senth-class Corvette Kiselyovsk |2/1| Rebel Alliance Precision Strike Carrier Group |Anastasia| Taskforce Experience Green (1xp) KDY Pelta-class Frigate Thessalonica |3/3| KDY Pelta-class Frigate Adrianople |3/3| RSD Paladin-class Corvette Thrace |2/1| RSD Paladin-class Corvette Corinth |2/1| SSC Quasar Fire-class Cruiser-Carrier Constantinople |9/9|
  2. "Mandalore, new orders are being commed to you now. A new objective, separate from my own. You will meet the Rebel fleets there and give the Sith hell." Raven looked over to her Admirals and nodded solemnly. The fleet knew their new objective, the pilots and NAVCOM officers plugging in coordinates that many, at least of the old imperial wing of the Rebel Alliance, knew by heart. Old perdition itself, the heart of neo-imperial Industry, Kuat Drive Yards. It was the location of two stunning defeats of the combined rebel fleets, and some of the ships in the formation, even the venerable Misericordia, still bore the wounds of that fighting. Many of the soldiers said archaic prayers, imperial knights crossed themselves, and Raven nodded to the Admiral. “Yes Empress.” She smiled and sat back onto the command chair, flanked by her two knights. Kuat Awaited them.
  3. A solemn alarm began to ring in the hangers and flight decks of the Nar Shaddaa base. Ships long in drydock fired their engines as couplings were pulled away. Every knight, pilot, or soldier had their orders beamed to their encrypted comm links. For the combined arms of the Rebel Alliance and Jedi Order would yet again venture into death to find its salvation and the freeing of the galaxy so long under Sith yoke. Oppression would be lifted by sword and blaster. For they were going to war. ((All Jedi, Imperial Knights, Mercenaries. and Rebel Alliance fleet commanders. You have your orders. May the force be with you))
  4. Was this a trap? Raven let her eyes drift over to her Imperial Exorcists who looked back at her with blank but unworried expressions. There was little to be done if this were indeed a trap, but this was no Onderon. There were no minefields, no planetary ion cannons, no golans. And this fleet was being led by a lot more experienced officers, officers who had been through hell a thousand times. Corellians fighting for their homes, Kuati and Caridians fighting for esoteric revenge, Hapans fighting for glory, Taipani fighting for honour, Galactic Alliance fighting for their redemption. This was her Rebel Alliance. And she was proud. “Away teams are go. Board and capture.” The comms officer switched the frequency to the fleet wide band “Surround the station and prepare for possible counter attack.” But the counter punch never came. And it appeared that the Sith had returned to their fortresses in the core. So the war would wait for another day, but for now the celebrations could start in earnest. Corellia was free.
  5. Originally designed in the Mon Calamari Shipyards Future Development Programme, the Novashark Frigate is the last design to be rescued before the Sith takeover. A highly agile frigate designed for broadside salvos on the flanks of the enemy fleet. A highly versatile power system allows the bridge crew to direct resources to ship zones as needed. This allows the NSW-35 to supercharge its broadside batteries on attack runs and reinforce shields as needed. The battery ridges on each side of the ship conceal the recessed bridge, protecting it from return fire. Missile launchers on the top of the battery ridges dead launch missiles up above the ship but oriented at their target, at which point the missile thrusters spear them forward. The Novashark has one main engine cluster arraigned in a circular ridge with two secondary clusters, with all engines sporting adjustable thrust nozzles for fine tuned maneuvering. The hull of a Novashark is short and wide, to offer minimal target silhouette, and less armored than an imperial vessel of equal size, instead relying on speed, shields, and the ability to pick its engagements. Early in the battle the NSW-35 will target shield stress points to create openings for bombers and heavy assault fighters to target key systems. Later on, it will try to pick off vulnerable ships on the flanks of the enemy fleet. Since the Novashark functions as a destroyer, the majority of its firepower comes from turbolasers and missile launchers, sporting only minimal point defense and relying on interceptors to screen it from enemy fast movers. In order to help it kill off wounded capital ships, the NSW-35 sports a single fixed position thermite rail cannon that can burn hot enough to ignite durasteel. These rounds are limited and useless against shielded targets, but a well timed hit on a wounded ship can gut it. ____________________________________________ Manufacturer: Nar Shaddaa Spaceworks Class: Frigate Length: 200 meters Width: 55 meters Height/depth: 55 meters Armament: 20 Taim & Bak XI7 turbolaser turrets, 4 Heavy Torpedo Tubes Crew: 600 Appearance:
  6. As the Rebel flagship began its slow and graceful turn towards the station of Centerpoint, a massive fighter screen stretched out like a grasping hand towards the Sith beachhead. A mix of older X-wings in their grey and multicoloured paint locked the S-foils into attack position and formed the center of the great formation. Though the rebel fleet was formed of a mix of old and venerable ships, they still carried the dual hearts of Imperial and Galactic alliance pride. TIE Defenders and K wings, the most expensive craft to maintain among the rebel flight groups flew side by side in the rear of the formation. Their skilled pilots making bets over encrypted comms on how much longer their fighters would be able to stay in service. The K wing’s ordinance and spare parts had been supplied by the Bilbringi shipyards, but that old bastion of the Galactic Alliance had long gone dark. The only word of that grand shipyards was spoken of by the few refugees and skilled personnel that had been able to escape. The pilots of the TIE defenders felt much the same pressure as their brothers in the K-Wings. Kuat Drive Yards was now only a memory, a great peak in the history of the Remnant. Now wholly occupied by the Sith Lords. The Rebel Alliance in all of its grandeur was running out of time. They had no huge shipyards with unlimited minerals to support the war effort, though they possessed the shipyards at Corellia and Nar Shaddaa, it was not enough to finance an all out war against the might of a Galactic Threat. So the pilots, admirals, captains, and the throneless Empress herself knew that the Rebel Grand Fleet was flying on borrowed time. Soon they would have to rely on more second hand craft and locally produced ships then the old MC-90s and Star Destroyers. "Mandalore, prepare for forward action. Take your men in, the Marines will come in beside." But for now, they made the assault on Centerpoint. And the Sith would feel the fury of a resurgent Rebel Alliance. And the great guns of the Misericordia began to churn its death towards the Sith patrol ships which were quickly jumping off into hyperspace. __________________________________________ Rebel Alliance Fleet Command Flagship |Romanova| KDY-Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer Misericordia |25/25| Axial Weapon Upgrade Pocket Dreadnought Upgrade Rebel Alliance Light Defensive Escort: Suppressing Fire |Alexandra| Task Force Experience: Green (1xp) RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Krasnoyarsk |3/3| RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Voronezh |3/3| RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Vladivostok |3/3| RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Sevastopol |3/3| NRE Senth-class Corvette Volga |2/1| NRE Senth-class Corvette Nakhodka |2/1| NRE Senth-class Corvette Voskresensk |2/1| NRE Senth-class Corvette Kiselyovsk |2/1| Rebel Alliance Precision Strike Carrier Group |Anastasia| Taskforce Experience Green (1xp) KDY Pelta-class Frigate Thessalonica |3/3| KDY Pelta-class Frigate Adrianople |3/3| KDY Pelta-class Frigate Strymon |3/3| RSD Paladin-class Corvette Thrace |2/1| RSD Paladin-class Corvette Corinth |2/1| SSC Quasar Fire-class Cruiser-Carrier Constantinople |9/9| Mandalorian Neo-Crusader Destroyer Group [Railguns] |Akalenedat| Task Force Experience: Green (1xp) IPM Neo-Kandosii-class Battleship: Xaakzaamheid |20/20| Mandalorian Neo-Crusader Destroyer Group [Missiles] |Bes'bev| Task Force Experience: Green (1xp) IPM Neo-Kandosii-class Battleship: Nat’ah |20/20| Mandalorian Neo-Crusader Light Defensive Escort: Suppressing Fire |Cabur| Task Force Experience: Green (1xp) IPM Fane-of-Swords-class Frigate Vlissingen |3/3| IPM Fane-of-Swords-class Frigate Leeuwarden |3/3| IPM Fane-of-Swords-class Frigate Nassau |3/3| IPM Fane-of-Swords-class Frigate Vrijheid |3/3| IPM Jehavey'ir-class Assault Corvette Stavoren |2/1| IPM Jehavey'ir-class Assault Corvette Oosterwijk |2/1| IPM Jehavey'ir-class Assault Corvette Jaarsveld |2/1| IPM Jehavey'ir-class Assault Corvette Boekenroode |2/1|
  7. As the imperial Remnant is no longer a faction, the Imperial Knights are being slowly rerolled back into the Jedi Order. Shelved for now
  8. The Rebel fleet emerged from hyperspace over the planet of Corellia, a new combined arms push to retake the entirety of the Corellia system had now officially begun. The Sith were still occupying their first beachhead after their own failed offensive and according to the policy set for by Rebel High command this was unacceptable. So a slow moving wave of newly upgraded vessels, starfighters, and fleet tenders began to make the long sunlight push to the occupied space station. Centerpoint would fall. __________________________________________ Rebel Alliance Fleet Command Flagship |Romanova| KDY-Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer Misericordia |25/25| Axial Weapon Upgrade Pocket Dreadnought Upgrade Rebel Alliance Light Defensive Escort: Suppressing Fire |Alexandra| Task Force Experience: Green (1xp) RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Krasnoyarsk |3/3| RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Voronezh |3/3| RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Vladivostok |3/3| RSD Praetorian-class Frigate Sevastopol |3/3| NRE Senth-class Corvette Volga |2/1| NRE Senth-class Corvette Nakhodka |2/1| NRE Senth-class Corvette Voskresensk |2/1| NRE Senth-class Corvette Kiselyovsk |2/1| Rebel Alliance Precision Strike Carrier Group |Anastasia| Taskforce Experience Green (1xp) KDY Pelta-class Frigate Thessalonica |3/3| KDY Pelta-class Frigate Adrianople |3/3| KDY Pelta-class Frigate Strymon |3/3| RSD Paladin-class Corvette Thrace |2/1| RSD Paladin-class Corvette Corinth |2/1| SSC Quasar Fire-class Cruiser-Carrier Constantinople |9/9|
  9. Raven smiled enthusiastically as she saw the Shistavanen Colonel approaching them. The two imperial knights gave the colonel sharp imperial salutes as he knelt, and Raven reached out a hand to indicate that he should rise. He was a hero of the Alliance after all, and though she was still an Empress, she had no throne and did not feel comfortable with such a man kneeling to her. “A pleasure to see you Colonel. I hear that you will be joining us on the next assault on the Sith holdouts at Corellia. I have not had the pleasure of properly thanking you for your service to this Rebel Alliance. I have no doubt we will work together on many more occasions. You have my utmost trust.” She looked at the beskar clad Mandalorian. “And you may have met already but in case you have not, this is Mandalore the Bloody. One time enemy of the Galactic Alliance, and now hero. Her fleet and men will be joining us for the assault on Centerpoint.” She let her purple eyes glance towards the squadron of waiting shuttle craft. “Shall we?” For it was time to journey again amongst the stars.
  10. Raven walked along the Presidium causeway that overlooked the thousands of prefab housing units that had been bolted together for use by the countless refugees heralding from the path of the Sith Lords. The limp from her long captivity was almost imperceptible, but the tiredness in her back and knees told her that she was coming to the end of her abilities. The two silent Imperial Knights walked behind her, their white-grey cloaks covering their armour while she wore the simple Grey and black of an imperial officer. She had been such an officer for most of her adult life. Captain, Admiral, Senator, Empress, then what? Leader of the rebellion? No heraldic title came with that. Even if they regained the core worlds, and the gems of Kuat and Chandrila, would her new allies let her maintain control? OR would they set her aside for someone safe. Someone not imperial. Someone like the old Galactic Alliance had promoted. A feckless politician who only brought corruption with them? That was the most likely course. She could cross no Rubicons with the Jedi at her back. They had not supported the Imperial Remnant before, they would not likely support a soft authoritarianism if they returned to power. They would bow before the god of Democracy again, and would yet again willingly place their necks into the guillotine. But that was a long way off. Gods could they even retake Centerpoint without completely exhausting their meagre force? Her eyes caught the dark red eyes of an old friend who was standing beside a Balilisk war droid. A hero of old and a hero new. Terra. Raven strode quickly forward and embraced the young woman. Kissing her on each of her cheeks before releasing her. “Thank you for coming my friend.” ______________________________________ In the skies above the duel worlds of Nar Shaddaa and Nal Hutta the new combined fleet began to prepare for its next mission.

  11. Five golden medals lay buried in a sculpture of polished durasteel. Its foundation covered in a thousand flowers, lain by good wishers and grateful citizens of the Rebel Alliance. For as the five Iron Knights had been laid to rest beneath it, a million minds changed from fear to sadness, honour, and love. The Mandalorians of the Neo-Kyr'tsad had redeemed themselves fully. As Raven laid the wreath at its foot she placed her hand beside the inscription which read: “Here lies the Forlorn Hope. The Iron Knights of Mandalore who died restoring their honour and pleasing their Gods. May the darkness never touch them, for they have been refined into light. They have partaken in the Akaanati'kar'oya. And none can touch their splendour.” But now there were another thousand worlds to rescue.

    Vervain held the medical scanner up to the giant hutt her nose wrinkling in a mixture of awe and disgust at the hulking behemoth. The scanner beeped twice then fell silent. The diagnosis screen blanking out, and the device began a reboot sequence, failed then shut completely off. She looked over her shoulder to the captain who shrugged. It was old imperial technology anyway so it was due to fail at some point. There was a crackling of static in her ear from command and the captain held up his hand. It took a moment for Vervain’s own comm to tune into the encrypted frequency. THe voice was calm but carried with it the command of someone terrified. “....Get out of there now. Imperial Knights are enroute. They have sensed something evil there. You are with a SITH LORD.” She dropped the scanner and the fear in her stomach caused her to drop her rifle as well. Almost like a herd of nerfs, the commando team bolted for the airlock. None of them looked back.

    “Spasting hell, what is that?” The horrible voice came first. Slithering into their ears, propelled by the will of the evil Hutt. The looming creature lurched out of the dark interior, looking as horrible as he likely smelled. “Vervain!” Cried the captain as their blaster slung glowrods illuminated the grotesque figure. And the battalion’s medic, a sallow looking girl who was straight from the academy, sprang forward with a salute. She had tucked her pale blonde hair tightly under her helmet, but still several small strands had plastered across her sweaty forehead and she wished beyond anything that she could tuck them back in. It itched horribly. “Give him an assessment.” The Captain motioned towards the hutt with his rifle. “Now Mr. Hutt, we mean you no harm, let us heck you out and get you medical attention allright?”
  14. Raven nodded to the Hapan Commander who bowed low before turning and waving off her attendants. The sign was clear. A deal had been struck with the Hapans, or at least a faction within their esteemed empire, and now the Rebels would leave taking with them a remnant of warlike Hapes. And so the Rebel Alliance left the Mists and made for Nar Shaddaa
  15. There was of course, truth in Kirlocca’s suspicions. The hardness around her eyes even when filled with tears, spoke to the last two years of conflict. The torture at Dark Sun, the death of dozens of friends, and the loss of not only power but an entire way of life. The Imperial Remnant had died the whimpering death of compromise. The Moff Council had been traded for a group of failed senators from the Galactic Alliance. And though the Moffs still maintained their power on Nar Shaddaa, and the addition of the Galactic Alliance fleet had bolstered the military, had the addition of those failures to the command of the Rebel Alliance helped at all? Now Imperial citizens were dying over Corellia, a planet whose senators had railed for years in the senate against the Imperial war against the Sith. A hundred ignored petitions. And now trillions were dead and the heart of the galaxy had been seized by the Dark Lords of the Sith. And what was there to do? They had fought the Sith to a standstill over the Corellian homeworlds, but for what? They would next strike into the heart of the old Remnant and in all likelihood destroy what little remained. “Gather your strength Kirlocca, we have a long journey to Nar Shaddaa.” She looked up to the Hapans who bowed graciously and left the room. She extended a black gloved hand. “Then let us depart.” And her soft smile returned, but her eyes did not change.
