It was a plan that had been formulated with great care and consideration.
From the shipyards of Dac they struck out, venturing far from their defensive holdings to the distant, yet strategically important, world of Ciutric IV. The planet laid just off the Hydian Way, the crucial lifeline that fed galactic trade directly into the villainous Sith Empire. Squaring up against the Empire was a suicidal move, the Silver Jedi had been unable to match them blow-for-blow -- so what hope would they have against this growing threat?
But whereas the Silver Jedi had conceded the task impossible, the League of Voss had been forced to resort to less than honorable means to stem the tide of growing Imperialism. Hit and runs have become the norm, sneak attacks and ambushes of Imperial convoys became necessary. Ruthlessness replaced compassion, the position of the League growing more and more dire with each world that willingly bowed to the Sith Emperor.
Just as the Silver Jedi were cowards for abandoning the war. Admiral Oottall angrily tapped his webbed fingers on the arms of his command chair aboard the bridge of the Liberation-class Star Cruiser, Endeavor. He had been an extremely vocal advocate for a preemptive war against the Sith Empire, himself having suffered under the First Empire's rule nearly thirty years ago. His hopes were raised and then subsequently dashed when the Silver Jedi failed to follow up their defeat at Mirial with a renewed aggressive strike, and he lost all semblance of respect for the Silver Jedi when they picked up and left.
He would rather die fighting injustice then scurry away, tail firmly affixed between his legs.
And now he was poised to carry out what the Silver Jedi were too afraid to do.
The Endeavor materialized back into realspace alongside an assault fleet consisting of his flagship, six Nebulon-T Escort Frigates, and six Raxun Blockade Runners. Immediately a swarm of varied League starfighters reverted with them, and after a swift squadron roll call they launched their attack on a small local garrison and fleet stationed above the planet's orbital shipyards.
They wouldn't have long before the Empire caught wind of their plan, so speed was of the essence.
