404.12 // Update on Ord Biniir

It’s been a couple years now since violence erupted on Ord Biniir with no meaningful reply from the Imperial Military to the situation.

As the Imperial Military continues to hold back on their heels, not having any direction themselves from a Grand Moff at the helm, the Alliance for Democracy has slowly been expanding their sphere of influence out from the capital.

A mixture of volunteers and conscripts have been filling out their ranks, and the organization has made the move to rebrand themselves, as it were, and are now calling themselves the ‘People’s Republic of Ord Biniir’ (or PROB for short) They are expecting to hold their first planetary election this upcoming week, where all of the candidates are members of the political party which retains the name of their original movement.

PROB’s standing army is referred to as the regulars. Multiple corroborating reports confirm that professional soldiers of some sort are giving training and military instruction to their armed forces. The origin of these soldiers, either from some government or paramilitary, is unclear, but that has not stopped many from filling in those gaps themselves.

When asked about these training camps, Moff Yuliarn had this to say:

“This line of questioning is a joke. We all know it, and you all know it. It’s painfully clear that the Republic is sending in military advisors to train up these local ruffians under the radar in order to facilitate a break from our Empire. It’s a slap in the face and I, for one, will be pushing that we do something about it!”

We followed up again with Senator Yalook P’oolel, representing the adjacent Er’Kit system:

“It concerns me and all of the other senators to hear these accusations from Moffs and others in Imperial High Command. We have no interest in infringing upon the sovereignty of our long-standing ally. There’s enough recovery in the galaxy since those mystics who were causing whole planets to disappear were stopped. I would like to, again, express my desire to see the Empire resolve this conflict diplomatically and offer any services myself, or my staff, can render to mitigate any more bloodshed.”

Despite all of these overtures, bloodshed does continue. Not only on the planet, but in orbit as well. Multiple reports have confirmed that the self-proclaimed government of Ord Biniir has acquired a small fleet of retrofitted Tartan Cruisers, as well as one retrofitted Nebulon-C frigate.

Though the chassis of their fleet are archaic, their top-of-the line systems and armaments have locked down the system’s space-spheres and stymied all travel through the system. Each day that the Empire dallies in their response from here on out only gives more control, and to some, more legitimacy to this new planetary government.

On location, this is Andee N’evaro.
