CMDR RONNIE KANE: 03.05.3302 – EYE OF THE TEMPEST

***TOP SECRET: IMPERIAL HIGH COMMAND PRIVATE MISSIVE***

INTERCEPTION ATTEMPTS WILL BE CHARGED AS TREASON

Sender: CMDR Ronnie Kane

Recipient: [REDACTED]

Date: 03.05.3302

Status report, system codename CANDYSTICKS.

Civil war continues. Fierce fighting in pockets around two major starports – Szentmartony City and Dashiell Orbital. The system government, a corporation called TravSol, are based at Dashiell and must be worried.

The Empire Pact at first suffered heavy losses and appeared to be losing ground. Much of IPEC’s advantage seems to come from private freelancers like myself and my associates – this turned the tide of several conflict zones. It appeared towards the end of last week that IPEC would take Szentmartony City.

However, the Senate intervened. A mandatory ceasefire was declared, and in place of the usual officially-sanctioned transfer of territory, the Pact surrendered a tiny outpost on the first planet. It was a humiliation.

It didn’t work. IPEC attacked again shortly afterwards. However, the bolstering that the Pact’s forces received has meant that progress has been much slower for IPEC this time. They are gaining ground, but it will take a long time.

The system is suffering – an economic downturn has dampened trade and living standards. Public support for war will not continue indefinitely.

Please send intel on whoever intervened.

Arissa invicta.
