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.

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.

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.

399.22 // New Poll to shorten social care to the unemployed!

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen of the Republic,

Today the senate has been greeted by a new poll requested by Wayland’s Senator Alorin Treychar, suggesting to cut off funds for unemployed and people in need of care.

“We face an immediate threat of a financial crisis, and the current unrest among the Republican territories have reached a whole new level since the days of the Civil War on Vohai. In order to put an abrupt stop to this disastrous state of affairs, it is in our best interest to focus our financial resources to the law enforcement and military department, enabling us to use force when need be, and we now live in times where this need has become top priority. I, Alorin Treychar, would hereby wish to put up a new poll on decreasing funding to several social facilities. This poll is not to terminate, but to preserve life among those that suffer under the unrelenting force of the brutal extremists that protest against our tenets of freedom and peace.”

A widespread disappointment has reflected from the senate building, with many shouts coming from the liberal and left-wing politicians. Senators of Ryloth, Fondor and Rodia were among those to protest the suggestion of Wayland’s conservative senator, who has surprisingly gained a good portion of the Republican Senate’s vote.

Latest surveys among the population have shown a very drastic and obvious disagreement with the arguments of Senator Treychar.

How will the liberal voice of the people answer for this situation?

This is Ghara Vicano from the Senate Building.

Back to you, Lynda.
