Mysterious ship that appeared near barrier few days ago was today attacked by Solas Tempus strike force after getting confirmation that crewman that disappeared are aboard.
STV Epoch and 2 squadrons of Peregrine fighters accompanied by Jaina and Tal Ravis in their own fighters (X-Wing and Scimitar respectively) attacked the heavy-armed vessel. During the attack the ship responded with their own squadrons, destroying at least 2 fighters in initial contact. Shortly after pilots of Peregrines started feeling weird about whole fight, some even fleeing field of combat. This was later confirmed to be a form of psionic attack known as Battle Meditation. Reports from the Epoch crew show that they suffered similar symptoms.
We received statement from one of pilots, flight officer Gabrielle Valenzuela;
It was like back head feeling that you are about to die, you instinctively want to run, find safe place, it was hard to resist, I was among ones that did run away. I’m not proud of that but it was like that, I was afraid of death. Hell I couldn’t even believe that we all risked life for one random person! Now I do feel bad about it, after all every life is important.
After ship defences were lowered, strike team composed of Jedi Master Reman and Tobi Angelos beamed aboard to search ship for missing personnel and Jyn. After they found Jyn the strike team was forced to fight through her own enraged attacks, before Jyn managed to injure Reman who holds to the story that he allowed this to happen. Just before getting tackled to ground and was knocked unconscious. Jyn is currently resting in sickbay, her status has not been made public as yet, though it is known she is allowed select visitors.
The crew of the unknown vessel informed Solas Tempus that it’s designation is INV Raven’s Hand, an Harrower Class Dreadnought. The last words of it’s captain, before one of Sith aboard killed him, asked Captain Leonard of STV Epoch to keep his crew safe. The safety of the crew of the Raven’s are of course being held safely in Solas Tempus custody abiding by the standards of humane treatment of prisoners. Solas Tempus released a statement ensuring that the crew will be treated with dignity and respect during their questioning and debriefing. The future of the enemy vessel is unknown, Solas Tempus declined to comment but rumors suggest the vessel may be either stripped down for research or perhaps refit and introduced into the fleet.
A brief was also filed with the court to seek a maximum sentence of assault against Tobirama Angelos, which carries a maximum sentence of 2 years in prison for the crime. Tobirama has been assigned an attorney but no public statements have been made. Much will depend on how copiable Tobirama is seen to be on if charges of assault in the 1st degree sticks, the prosecutors office is taking a firm stance that the kind of reckless conflict resolution which has been seen previously will no longer be tolerated. No requests have been made at this time to suggest that any question of Tobirama’s sanity has been made.
The coming weeks will surely be a struggle for the Angelos family.
Takumi Angelos, son of John Angelos, has been arrested by Special Agent Aadila Reza on charges of attempted sexual assault. While Ms. Reza declined to comment on the ongoing investigation, John Angelos has been at the center of a rather disturbing accusation, where he is accused of having unlawful sexual relations with his adoptive daughter who is not yet of legal age of consent within the Concord. If the charges turn out to be true against the younger Angelos it could be used by the prosecution to paint a potential pattern of behavior for the family. Rumors have circulated for some time that Takumi Angelos is a bit of a wild-child having multiple partners, sometimes even on the same night. While that is not illegal and so far no other allegations of wrong-doing have surfaced it is not out of the range of possibility that the young man be facing more charges in the aftermath of one person willing to stand up for themselves.
Governor Maddox and Senator Murrika have both released a joint statement condemning the actions of Takumi Angelos and calling on the Civilian Oversight Board to exercise their right to order that John Angelos be removed from active duty. Their chief concern, according to the statement, is that he is in a direct conflict of interest. It is also of interest that Tobirama Angelos is currently in holding pending charges of assault against Jyn which could lead some to conclude that a strong tradition of violence against others runs through the family. Investigators will no doubt wish to talk to Itza Angelos next, where they may expect to find more evidence of a further pattern of violence.
The Governor’s office has also confirmed that it is considering charges of obstruction of justice against John Angelos who apparently attempted to convince SA Reza to release his son, on the suggestion that he would give up and allow himself to go to prison. While some may see that as a confession, he did not actually admit to wrong doing. In a partial copy of a private report sent by the Special Agent to the Governor’s office it states that John Angelos believes his son to be innocent on the grounds that it is SA Reza’s fault for expecting the young man to control himself. Such a sentiment has prompted serious concern among many levels of the government. It is expected that Fleet Admiral Thomas himself will have to respond to this incident with a stronger stance or risk seriously alienating his superiors who could, in theory, remove him from command as he personally brought John Angelos into the organization where he was appointed as chief of security of Nimbus Station. There are already calls from senators to consider removing him from command, which so far the Admiral has been able to rebuff based on his years of service.
