290.21 // Alliance Invades Rhigar

A Chiss military academy on Rhigar has been destroyed by a joint Alliance/Jedi military operation, a Coalition spokesperson has announced. The attack, which officially ended at 0430GST on 290.21, is believed to be one of the more costly individual Alliance offensives of the past few years, with an estimated 10,000 Coalition casualties. Acting Chief-of-State Admiral Wilkinson, already facing strong pressure for her risky offensive strategies, defended the assault, stating that “the lives lost are not lost in vain” and has promised to continue military action in the region.

Rhigar, located deep within traditional Ascendancy borders in the Unknown Regions, is believed to be a key stronghold for the Chiss military. With the Rata Nebula and Sarvachi under Coalition control, Ascendancy space is effectively cut in two. Only the worlds of Yashuvhu and Mobus protect the Chiss homeworld of Csilla to the north, while Crustai and Pesfavri remain the critical locations in the southern Ascendancy. It remains unknown how the Chiss military will respond to this new development, or how Admiral Wilkinson and the military will contain the enemy forces on either side of the captured worlds. As always, GHN will have the latest details as they appear.
