BRIEFING: Since 450 ABY reports have circulated from the mining system of TÖTMOND of a SSI-RUUK IMPERIUM presence. FOSB [REDACTED] COMMAND first received these reports on [REDACTED] from the trading vessel DUSKEN. Reports since then have been consistent however FOSB assets have not been deployed to the sector, meaning CENTRAL COMMANDS sources on the unfolding situation have exclusively come from smugglers and freighters.
With our plans to confront the GALACTIC ALLIANCE, it has now become vital to ascertain more resources to feed our war machine. In order to fill demand, we must reopen our supply lines on TÖTMOND and secure its natural wealth. As a part of this effort, FLEET ADMIRAL RAUSGEBER has been delegated TASK FORCE RAZE to scout the sector, and perform immediate analysis, before calling in GRAND ADMIRAL TRASK and BATTLEGROUP TYRANNY to perform the capture of the system.
- Verify the hostile presence.
- Ascertain how strong the enemy presence is.
- Destroy any vessels that are alerted to our presence.
- Attempt to make contact with local civilians.
- Find out what has happened.
The FIV Malice and a small fleet of escorts jumped out of lightspeed, clinging to the very edge of the system. The Malice was the largest vessel by far in the scouting party, dominating the scouting party largely made up of assorted cruisers, frigates and corvettes. Aboard the Malice's command deck, Fleet Admiral Carlyle Rausgeber, the missions executive officer watched as the fleet converged, and in the distance, the eerie sight of Tötmond.
Even from this distance, Carlyle could see the infamous "steel field", frozen fragments of the planets core, which had been in orbit for over a century. But perhaps most disturbing was the great cavern, a massive fissure, which exposed the planets empty core to the harshness of space. Although from this angle, you couldn't see anything inside, you could however note the shadow, through the thick debris field.
Rausgeber felt some anger at the nature of the mission, which was a basic courier style run. Nothing too fancy. Just look at the planet, something the FOSB could have, and in the Admiral's mind, should have done. But nonetheless, he digressed. Rausgeber activated his comms, and began to broadcast across the small flotilla, "All commands, report in."
