The entire fleet has completed their refits, we are now fully combat operational. Our Immobilizer, the INV Hound, has been refit to include the ability to interdict the warp cores of a majority of Solus Tempus warships. Imperial Security Bereau officer Tierney has interrogated our prisoner, Lieutenant Commander Megan Shepard. He has achieved fantastic results, I must give him credit. I have yet to see anyone break a prisoner as quickly as he broke Lieutenant Commander Shepard. We now have the command codes of their inter-dimensional gates, and the USS Pegasus. We also have a complete list of the ships in Schatten System, with the general armaments and captains, as well as the position of other orbital defenses. I have also recieved a report from my agent residing on Nimbus. Tensions are rising, and I have assigned agent Tarkiel to assist in creating more strife. I organized a trap for Solus Tempus forces, but they came prepared and I nearly lost the Serpent, and I did lose several vital support vessels and fighters. After a short stop in Federation space, I will be returning to Onyx spacedocks for repairs.
This information is broadcast via a Deep Echo Array one of a number of secret facilities. It is received using a subspace receiver tuned to the correct frequency at the correct time. The signal instructs an asset on how to retrieve this information using various codes in a code-book of some kind. An Onyx XIA would also have the ability to receive and decode such a message to look up the information in real time.
Duchess Malumnus has made contact with spliced in forces of the Galactic Empire within the Milky Way, specifically the INV Serpent and its leader, Admiral Enus Vallan, who appears to be in command of the Imperial forces in the area. The Admiral has agreed to a partner ship and is in route to our facility at Assyria Base for refit to fight Solas Tempus forces. Admiral Vallan has also dispatched a number of probe droids to contact his forces within the Schatten Star System, one of which has been discovered but self-destructed. Given the destruction of one of the probes, clandestine forces should be aware of the need for increased secrecy. It is known that contact was made with Milana Tarkiel outside of Nimbus Station and at this time there is no evidence that droids are being specifically tracked.
Onyx has provided Admiral Vallen with a coded subspace channel for secure communications.
This arc is going to need spies and people to help increase the unrest. As with a previous post there are racial tensions already present. Since the Empire is very much pro-human and anti-alien, this should go well. From a plot-standpoint, the is also the general direction, and anyone wishing to expand on that should feel free to do so. The way this is plotted to shake out is that the humans start to respond in-kind to alien anti-human sentiment.
