JEDI HoloNet

409.19 // A Shaky Start for Little Creek

Potential disaster struck the nacent community of Little Creek recently when the towns aging reactor suffered an apparent near-meltdown.

Councillor Alema Ann has refused to comment on rumours of the involvement of a team of Jedi artisans in the reparation of the reactor.

Councillor Ann neither confirmed nor denied suspicions that the Rannon Planetary council is putting both her councillorship and the city status of Little Creek under review in the wake of these events.

At present, radiation levels in Little Creek are said, by Councillor Ann, to be “within acceptable margins.”

More details to follow as they become available.

400.02 // Rannon’s Renovation Reduces Revered Reticence?

Good afternoon readers on Alzoc and Rannon alike. This is Orleana Gorgin of the AGNN. Many of you are interested in learning the truth, which was why I was awarded the Sector Service Excellence Award 6 times running! But we’re not here to talk about that. After all, you can see my accolades and pre-order my latest book, “Just Jedi? More like, just Jedi”, at orlggn.hlnt anytime! Instead, I am writing this piece to talk about the continued wake of destruction that the Jedi leave in this local path. Some of you may ask why a reporter from Alzoc III would bother covering something on Rannon.

Well, as of posting this article I am officially a galactic correspondent with the network, not just a regional one for Alzoc. Which empowers me to investigate the likes of the Jedi, who much like last time, left Alzoc in a hurry.

To that end, it raises a big question to many – “Why”? Why bring yourself to our quiet planet, set up a presence, lower the crime rate, community outreach, etc, and then just leave? To this reporter the answer is clear – the Jedi do not care about us! Now, they have returned to Rannon after blasting out of there eight years past, and the locals are none too happy about it. Earlier this cycle I had the privilege of gathering some comments from regular citizens just like you and me. Take a look here at what the people had to say:

”The Jedi left and stuff just got worse and worse. The storms kept up for ages. We lost so many homes, people died. Some say that the Void was the fault of the Jedi. I don’t know about that, but I do know that if they couldn’t stick around to help, they can’t just show up when everything is starting to get back to normal!” – Ficti Nomine
”I dunno…Rumor is they left to protect the kids and stuff. Which I guess that’s okay. But I lost my farm. The Jedi could have even come to help even when they were offworld….” – Lannis Janna
<<sinpad hioffpo parede ned swoquix chaintwist inti alerassa>> – ???

But don’t just take their word for it, you can also listen to someone you trust, like me.

Well, have they put any work to reconstruction efforts on Rannon? Reportedly, the planet is only at 50-75% recovered from the major storms according to most experts. Well, they certainly have rebuilt their nice and exclusive temple!

Therefore a humble and small time award winning reporter poses this challenge to the local Jedi on Rannon: I’m going to go out and start helping rebuild Rannon. If you care at all, you’ll join me for a workday instead of hiding in the temple playing little monks.

Until then, this is Orleana Gorgin, signing off.

398.18 // Contruum Exclusive: Jedi Apprehend Central Bank Robbers

Holorecordings have recently surfaced of the brawl that ensued between Jedi security and the leadership of the Red Fist gang, ultimately leading to the arrest of notorious bank robber Bossman Leo and his deadly crew.

The twenty-three year old Kel’dor is a native to Contruum and is now being processed through the Republic’s Supreme Court for 30 recorded murders and five charges of armed robbery with intent to do harm. He is expected to serve 42 consecutive life sentences. While the Red Fist gang’s leadership has been apprehended, Contruum holonews has been made aware that a violent leadership contest has begun within the gang and against the outside Green Fist gang of sector 23.

Citizens of Contruum were surprised to find that Jedi were operating on the planet’s underworld, as few details have been given by the Chief of Police. In his statement on the arrest, he said:

“We are glad to have worked with the Jedi Order and Republic in apprehending this criminal, and we are sure that the success of the operation is a sign of good things to come.”

396.18 // Double Trouble: Junior Jedi Just Jaded Justice

Good day my fellow truth seekers. I told you I’d keep you up to date on this whole crystal conundrum, and true to my word I have just gathered even more of a scoop while simultaneously doing the job of the Jedi and the ASF!

Some of you super fans might have seen my latest episode of “Ultra Undercover Utilitress”, in which I made my foray into the local Jedi Temple here on Alzoc III and gave you all a candid look at how the temple operates behind closed doors.

You can remember with fondness and dismay at my detention at the hands of these Jedi when they aptly discovered I was under cover and how they failed to even check basic credentials for validity before locking up innocent civilians doing their civic duty! One of the Masters there even ordered one of the young Jedi to destroy my camera! It made it perfectly clear that these are not people we want protecting us. If you remember the rumors surrounding their leaving of this facility some decades past, you’ll know that I long have believed the people at the capital rose up and together ousted the lot of them with our cries of anger! Speak to them with the money, I say! Not allowing them to renew their lease was, in my opinion, the greatest act of service the ASF had done to date, or since.

But, Orleana Gorgin isn’t all talk, sentiment, auspicious beauty and intelligence, she’s also built to work, and she works for YOU, the deserving citizens of Alzoc III who deserve to know they are safe!

When last we left off on this story we had discovered little to nothing other than that lightsaber crystals of some kind were circulating the black market. Since then, the ever competent Jedi have been taking over the case. Particularly, two young Jedi that you may recognize – I snapped this photo just moments before they began threatening innocent Ugnaughts on the street.

That’s right – it’s the same duo who we encountered on “Ultimate Undercover Utilitress”! You can tell the Jedi sent its very best to investigate this, right?

Not even five minutes after this point the duo came after me, but I wasn’t afraid, because of that beauty, charm and wit I told you about earlier. I actually managed to pry some information out of them, cobbled together with what I had previously learned through my own investigation.

As you may or may not be aware, there was a sizable explosion just the other day on the east side of the capital where…the less than savory congregate. Allegedly, a small explosion set off other explosives from this weapons dealer, causing the damage to the building.

This has put the Rising Sun and Dewback groups on extremely tense terms, as people start pointing fingers. Other smaller gangs are smelling the blood in the water too, such as the Fletchers. Alzoc III’s capital is set for an all out gang war with us innocent, beautiful and incredibly intelligent citizens caught in the crossfire!

This reporter has located a few items from the police report that the ASF DOES NOT WANT you to see. Allegedly there were plasma emissions detected at the scene, as well as bizarre shrapnel embedded into the walls with the plasma emissions. After questioning the Jedi, I think that maybe one of the gangs has set up ELABORATE TRAPS to cause EXPLOSIONS to happen when testing out these crystals. Are they actually crystals? Are they just BOMBS?!

One thing is for certain. This reporter is on the case and will find out more for you soon. Until next time, this has been Orleana Gorgin.

396.12 // Crystalline Contraband in the Capital Causes Crazy Commotion!

Good afternoon readers! Do I have a scoop for you! After scavenging through the scraps of information from various sources, this reporter has found some interesting tidbits that the goons at the ASF would sooner see die in pre-production before sent out to you seekers of the truth.

In the ever growing dystopia that is Alzoc III, everyone knows the heart of which lies the corrupt and toothless Alzoc Security Force, there lurks gang violence and petty crime like a film of oil adhering to every surface. Each attempt to wipe it away just smears it further, and only stains your own hands in the process.

That’s why it is no surprise to find that Alzoc Security Forces are once again withholding information from us, the people! Thankfully, with people like yours truly on the case, you can be sure you have an advocate for your interests in the thick of it on the streets of Alzoc III. Galactic Breaking News Alzoc is proud to be the first to report that black market crystals, of the make that powers the Jedi’s legendary weapons, have been confiscated and rumored to be distributed to local gangs.

This wouldn’t be the first time the ASF has held dangerous information from the public. I’m sure we all remember the incident back in 390 surrounding the neo-spice trafficking through hospitals. Luckily I was there then, and I’m here now to give you all of the facts as they come in.

I have since reached out to the ASF for comment, here’s what they had to say:

“Get that thing out of my face Gorgin or I’ll have you thrown in a cell!” – Commander Dorian Vector, ASF

As you can see, they continue to try to silence the truth! But do not worry. As more information comes out I will be reporting them immediately!

This has been Orleana Gorgin, and I’ll see you next time!
