401.03 // Acose Industrial Park has finally reopened.

Today, the Acose Industrial Park opened its gates for workers once again. Late on 400.30 a large fire was was reported to of broken out at the Acose Industrial Park. Whilst the fire itself was put out relatively quickly, it did cause a large explosion which was heard in nearby districts.

It is not clear which industrial unit the fire originated from, although the fire services have confirmed they have identified the cause of the fire and consider the matter ‘closed: no further investigation required’.

There has been no further comment from any governmental body,

Correction

In a previous issue we broke the news that the CSF engaged a hostile force above the atmosphere of Coruscant on 400.30. However this has now been confirmed by CSF and GRID to of been a joint training exercise.

400.26 // Continued delay in alliance ratification from the Jedi Order

On 400.07, Holonews reported that the formal alliance between the Republic and Jedi Order was agreed pending formal ratification from the High Council of the Order.

There is no further information as to when or even if such a convening of the High Council is due to take place to discuss and vote on the proposed agreement.

However, a close source to the Jedi Order was recently over heard sharing some of the concerns that appear to be felt within the Order.

“the Republic has seen this as the way of getting Jedi soldiers for their conflicts”

“there was much tension within the temples when Vohai happened”

“Many were not in favour of assisting on the front lines of the Republic”.

What does this mean for the deal between the Order and the Republic? It appears, no one is quite sure, not even members of the Order itself.

400.13 // The Manning Inquiry ends as Ruun trial due to start immediately


The inquiry into Lord Laa’ken Ruun and potential war crimes committed during the war on Vohai has officially been closed and the report provided to relevant committees for review.

It was announced 398ABY that a trial would take place following the inquiry but it appears the Republic are keen not to stall the process. Announcing the trial is due to start on 400.24ABY.

Rumours coming from the Chief of States office suggest that the finalisation of the deal between The Jedi Order is being delayed by the Order who wish to see the outcome of any trial before signing on the dotted line.

400.07 // BREAKING NEWS: Deal in principle agreed between Republic and Jedi Order

In what diplomats on both sides have dubbed some of most complex negotiations in recent history, Galactic Holonews has received word that a deal in principle has finally been struck between The Jedi Order and the Republic.

It is believed that Chief of State Lammee Ranack is keen to get the formal alliance between the two finalised, and has privately expressed frustration at the Grandmaster Coron Audax delay in signing the agreement.

In response to a question from the Galactic Holonews, Jedi Knight Ensil Stazi, spokesman for the Jedi Order has released the following statement:

The Jedi Order has made it standard practice not to comment on any of the negotiations.Standard practice dictates that any deal would be subject to final approval from the High Council of the Order not just the Grandmaster.

The Galactic News has reached out for clarification of when such a vote would take place, but has yet to receive further comment from the Order.

399.28 // The Galaxy Aligns as the Galaxy remembers the Battle of Yavin.

When you arrange to meet your friends for an early morning caf, you’ll fire messages back and forth, “I’m free on 399.22, 399.30 and 400.03”. The three letters that come after these dates are often forgotten or left out, but we all know that they are ABY – After the Battle of Yavin.

Was there a time before the battle of Yavin? Of course there was, infact the galaxy spans millenia before the Battle of Yavin, so what was the event that was large enough to hit the reset button on the galactic calendar?

Well, you can find out more, by watching the critically acclaimed 10 part docu-drama series coming to Holoflix called ‘BY’.

The galaxy itself seems to be marking the occasion with a natural phenomenon scientists have dubbed ‘The Concentric Suns’. A large portion of the suns, in the known galaxy, will be in perfect symmetry and harmony, the process known as solar dynamo causing them to correlate to one another for a brief temporal window; one lasting merely couple of days. This is expected to lead to what is being described as a once in a lifetime, for most species, spectacular astral event.

What will it look like? No one is quite sure, it’s never happened before, although scientists and astrologers around the galaxy are at fever pitch with excitement.
