OOC Note: This is meant to be an in-character national maintenance thread for the Empire of Thrashia. As it is closed for outside posting, unless I specifically give permission, please refrain from posting. Questions may be directed via telegram.

Date System
ICly speaking the Empire of Thrashia has recently changed galaxies, uprooting it's citizens to try and find a safer place in the greater universe. Starting from the day in which the first migration fleets arrived at their new home in the Beta Quadrant of the Milky Way Galaxy, a new calendar was adopted as well as a dating system. This system is known as the 'New Imperial Era', with the year starting at '1'. It then goes by day-month-year. Such that [23.4.001] would be the twenty-third day of the fourth month of the first year of the New Imperial Era.

Admiral Ishin Koga took off his service cap and tucked it into his belt. Most of the officers filing into the room did likewise. It was summer time on this part of New Bastion and even with the air conditioning it was still humid. Admiral Chiraneau was visibly and profusely sweating. Koga smiled at his opposite number. “You'll get use to it, soon enough.”

“I'd rather be back aboard my ship,” grunted Chiraneau.

“No wonder the ground pounders make fun of us Navy guys,” smiled Koga, “We always want our climate-controlled starship bridges instead of anything else.”

“They're more than welcome to this swelter,” groused Chiraneau. The other, junior, officers around them all chuckled and made noises of agreement.

The briefing room had a holo-projector table in the center. Koga motioned to one of his men to get it online. Within moments, the New Bastion system was floating in mid-air before them. Koga nodded toward it and began his brief as the other officers began sitting in the raised seating surrounding the projector.

“So, here is the center of all our operations – our regional capital...well, I guess it's Imperial Center now,” began Koga. That garnered a small laugh from the officers. “New Bastion. It is in what has been designated as the R-V Sector. When we arrived in this Milky Way Galaxy, we adhered to a local tradition of dividing up the galaxy according to a grid system of mapping.”

As he spoke, the image of the New Bastion System was replaced with a galaxy wide, wide angle image – graph lines crisscrossing it. It zoomed in onto the R-V sector of space in what the projector was labeling the 'Beta Quadrant'.

“Surprisingly, while they have fewer sectors than we are use to back in the home galaxy, the density of systems within a single sector is much higher. Within the R-V sector alone, we have 20,349,000 star systems; but of those, only a little less than a few thousand have naturally habitable planets. If you check section A, sub-section 1-1 on your datapad brief packets, you'll find a list of them. We've colonized half of those within the R-V sector and patrol the other half regularly. The other systems are barren star systems - empty and useless for settlement, but good for industrial purposes.”

Chiraneau looked up from his datapad. “Two hundred star systems isn't going to be enough for proper settlement...not by a long shot. We've hundreds of trillions of beings that will be flooding into here.”

“Yes, we've been aware of that problem,” nodded Koga. The holomap increased in size, showing surrounding sectors of space around the R-V Sector. “Which is why we've also mapped out and investigated nearby sectors of space. If you will, gentlemen and gentlewomen, check through Section B of your brief packets, you'll see the number of sectors, habitable systems each contains, etc.”

“Eleven full sectors...” Chiraneau was impressed. “On average 500-1,000 habitable systems, a further five thousand that could be made habitable with terraforming...this could work.”

“In terms of settlement, yes, and the new Settlement Bureau can handle the fine details” agreed Koga. “But it makes our job that much more difficult, or at least more complex. Now, we've established regular patrols in all these sectors, predominantly with probe droids. Practically half of the Beta Quadrant has, by now, been seeded with holonet transceivers, so you could be in the next quadrant over and expect your message to reach New Bastion within a relatively short amount of time.”

“What about the ansible technology?” asked a vice admiral sitting next to Chiraneau. Lacroix was looking at Koga closely.

“We've all had it for some time, but haven't made use of it except in extreme situations,” replied Koga. “You knew this as well as we did, seeing as how it was old Parlim and then the Colonials who gave us that technology. We just simply haven't used it, except strategically.”

“We'll definitely be using it more,” said Chiraneau with finality. “What defensive plans have you formulated?”

“Each sub-sector, at least in the R-V sector, has a deep space, secretly located naval base. Think of it as a way station for the Navy forces in the area. They're quite nice, really. R&R facilities, stores, restaurants, bars -- you name it, they got it. But they also act as assembly areas. Each deep space station, DSS, has an Enemy Action Response Team – or EART – ready to go within less than thirty minutes. Those ships not on patrols, R&R, or refit usually take rotation as part of an EART.”

“And I assume it's been tested?”

“Down to the minute. We faced a few major incursions from a rogue migration of pirates, known as the Ravagers, recently. The EARTs managed to keep more than six colonies from being ransacked.”

“Casualties?”

“Minimal, mostly civilian ships that didn't run away in time. Each colony is provided with a planetary-grade shield generator in return for tax deductibles on Imperial goods sold to the colony. I'm told it's profitable in the long run. Either way, it forces a lot of enemy forces to face us in space.”

“We won't be able to count on that for the near future,” said Vice Admiral Lacroix. “We don't have nearly enough stock to give each planet we settle a shield generator. At least not on the planetary-grade.”

“It was something we expected,” countered Koga, as if he had been waiting for the vice admiral to voice these words. “And have therefore been furiously training the EARTs. With the addition of the entire Imperial Navy now in the Beta Quadrant, I'm quite confident that we can keep any planet from being subject to occupation – though they may suffer in the initial attack.”

Chiraneau nodded. “That will be unavoidable, unfortunately. But necessary for now. I applaud your efforts, Admiral Koga – you and your men have prepared well.” The officers around Chiraneau bobbed their heads in agreement and an impromptu round of applause broke out. Koga smiled and gave a dramatic bow, creating more chuckles.

Koga adjusted the holo-projector again. “If you look now in your brief at Section C...”

"Please! Let me go! I didn't--."

A shock baton was placed into the back of the man, cutting short his protest. Two Imperial Guard members picked the man back up from where he had fallen to the floor. The vibrant crimson of the thick silk carpet beneath them meant that the man's fall was soundless. Beyond the edge of the carpet that led from the great doors three hundred meters behind them all the way to the throne topped dais. Sitting atop the throne with a calm, if severe, look upon her face was Empress Dheinalia Vera Nuruodo. Courtiers and various functionaries stood on the periphery of the throne room. To either side of the chamber where the carpet ended were great columns of green veined white marble. A veranda extended outwards from there, which left the throne room open to the wind that coursed through, keeping the spring air crisp and cool.

"Moff Erktana, you have been found guilty of high crimes -- most of which are Class A," said Empress Dheinalia.

As she spoke a small droid hovered next to the throne and projected a holo-screen. Upon it was displayed images of Moff Erktana. First was one showing him order a squad of arms-men to gun down several bound and kneeling people. The next showed the moff shaking hands with a scarred-faced man, a known criminal of the Zann Syndicate. Another showed the disfigured and unmoving corpses of two women who had been working as servants in the moff's palace upon the world that he had ruled. Bank statements showing money increases and cash exchanges that went far beyond the normal wages that a moff would normally accrue. Testimonies of citizens who had been forced out of homes due to the moff's agents declaring them criminals, making way for new building projects that favored the moff and his cronies. It was a litany of crimes.

The moff hung his head in silence.

"Have you anything further to say in this matter?" asked the Empress.

The moff glanced up, his eyes seething with hatred as he stared up at Dheinalia.

"For the crimes of rape, murder, piracy and theft of Imperial property, embezzlement of Imperial public funds, collusion with criminal syndicates, and more...I, Empress Dheinalia Vera Nuruodo, Ruler of the Thrashian Empire, and Sovereign of the Constituent Client Kingdoms, sentence you to death."

The Imperial Guard gripped the fallen moff tighter and turned around. They began to drag the man away, a small holonet cam-droid following along. He began to thrash around and yell, continuing to protest against the sentence. Those courtiers with enough bravery simply stared at the dragged felon with contempt. Those that perhaps had a guilty conscious for various reasons, looked elsewhere.

The sentence was far from harsh. When Dheinalia had first received reports about Moff Erktana's activities from her Imperial Seekers she had been shocked. She had always expected better from the Moffs of her Empire, especially since they were well paid and allowed to own private businesses -- so long as that did not violate any laws. The fact that Erktana's greed had sunken him so low as to become a murderer. Dheinalia turned her head slightly and spoke to the shadowed figure behind her throne. "Order an increase of surveillance on all moffs within the same sector. Increase efforts by the local ISB to take down any criminal enterprises therein." The shadow bowed it's head and then disappeared.

Vismanus Sector - Flare Up Of Pirate Groups, Fears Increasing

In the past two weeks the Vismanus Sector authorities have captured twenty-three individuals connected to the Zann Consortium, an illegal crime syndicate that originated in the Old Galaxy. In an operation designed to lure them out, Sector Authorities coordinated their efforts between the Imperial Navy and the Imperial Security Bureau. Five cargo ships of various size and description were impounded, their goods confiscated and detailed for destruction; the monetary value of the illegal cargo estimated at Image30,000,000 or more. ISB Colonel Fritzgerald Nuone fielded questions by holonet journos at steps of the Sector Courthouse on Montressor. According to the announcements made there and the official press releases thereafter, this security operation has crippled the Consortium's efforts within the sector for some time to come. "I hope only that we can all remain vigilant," said Colonel Fritzgerald Nuone, "Never forget to report any wrongdoings you may happen to witness. Your local constabulary or ISB agents are always prepared to mete out justice."

It has raised many concerns among citizens, not only within the sector affected, but also within the empire at large. Almost without exception, Thrashians believe that violent crime is increasing. In the short run, they are right: Violent crime did increase between this time last year and in the immediate aftermath of the Grand Migration. But what really worries most people is not the short-run trend but their sense that violent crime has been climbing steadily for a long time and that the future will only bring further increases. Such worries are linked to anxiety about drugs, hedonism, academic scandals, the growth of a non-citizen underclass, and our collective inability to completely forget the tragedies of the Chaos War. Taken together, these fears have convinced many sensible people that Thrashian society is at a crossroads.

However, much remains strong. While the scale of violent crime has markedly decreased compared to the levels that had been within the Empire before the Grand Migration, the fact that it remains has encouraged many Thrashian citizens to act upon their consciences. Recruitment within the Imperial Security Bureau has exceeded it's quotas by a margin of 6% for the past three years running. The same trends are seen across all branches of the Imperial Military as well.





Second Orbital Ring Completed - New Kuat Celebrates!


In a ceremony marking the start of festivities Grand Moff Noventa and Imperial Baron Dorn van Kuat, CEO and owner of Kuat Drive Yards, cut the ribbons for entry by the general public of the second orbital yard ring to be placed above New Kuat. The new ring wraps around and above the former, older docking ring that had been transplanted from the Old Galaxy to here. Speaking with reporters after the ceremony Baron Kuat boasted of the increasing productivity of the Empire and how he (KDY) were helping to fuel that growth. "We've always been the primary supplier for the Imperial Military and general public. You're just not somebody unless you've got one of our craft taking you places," Dorn van Kuat's son, Jean van Kuat, said at the festivities. The young scion of the Kuat family name is currently the only heir of the KDY family fortune and operations. Speculation as to whether or not he would succeed his father were seemingly put to rest when last year the young man was made a member of KDY's board of directors. According to rumors, it was Jean van Kuat's persistence and drive that saw New Kuat's facilities increased two-fold.

Grand Moff Noventa declared that ceremony would mark the beginning of a new Imperial Holiday in the Praesidium Sector: "Construction Day". What all the new holiday will entail is yet to be released, but a three day holiday was declared by Imperial Writ from the office of the Grand Moff.

Others have speculated that it was foreign investment that helped fuel the expansion further. It is no secret, any longer, that a large consignment of ships had been built and sold to the Aumani within the Solarian Reaches. Rival companies such as Rendili Stardrive, Sienar Fleet Systems, and the Corellian Engineering Corporation have congratulated KDY on it's success -- though only slightly. Competition is ramping up, especially as these same rivals are constantly shifting about to increase sales and stamp their competition out within any given system, sub-sector, or sector.

"We'll see how things go," said Izax Rendal, CEO of Thrashia's CEC branch. "This is a day for KDY to strut it's stuff, but only for today."
