The Alliance is in retreat. After blunting the Defense Force's attack on their illegal blockade, First Imperials have chased most of our fleet out of hex L-49, otherwise known as the Metharian Nebula. Rendezvousing in the neutral Vero system, surviving ships are joined by reinforcements seeking to assist in evacuation efforts as well as establish a perimeter around the First Order's intrusion zone.
Severely destabilized by trade route disruptions, worlds throughout the region are strained to their limits, and Vero is no exception. Unable to acquire the resources necessary for its cities' shields to function, the medical planet is now vulnerable to both opportunistic pirates taking advantage of disarray all along the Alliance's border, as well as Vero's extremely dangerous local wildlife.
GA officials meet with the planet's governing body, Ollix Medlabs, in hopes of coming to a mutually beneficial arrangement. If the Alliance can provide Ollix with badly needed material, Vero could very well prove to be the beginning of a supply chain through which to support a now languishing south.
GADF: Surviving veterans of L-49 may regroup, resupply, and meet up with reinforcements. Fleeters and starfighters are to engage in counter-piracy operations throughout the sector, as well as keep an eye out for any signs of further First Imperial aggression. Ground forces are called upon to help secure the perimeter of Vero's cities, their failing shield generators leaving the populace vulnerable to native Fexian skullborers and other dangerous local fauna.
Political: With the Hydian Way now mostly cut off and the Rimma Trade Route under grave threat, Vero could be the key to the south. As disrupted by the blockade as the Alliance systems on its border, if delegates could negotiate a deal to provide Ollix Medlabs with badly needed energy resources for their shields, the planetary government might prove more amenable to future cooperation and possibly even incorporation into the Alliance.
SIS And Intelligence: Evaluate the local government for any signs of First Order Security Bureau or Ren intrusion. Help establish a local base of operations from which to coordinate relief and counter-terrorism operations throughout the sector. Coordinate with the GADF and Alliance delegates to solve Vero's problems, either through word or deed.
New Jedi Order, Fringe Force Users: Resource starvation has also slowed Krth City's rate of kolto production, and with the rate of refugees coming in with dead and wounded from the destruction wreaked upon the Hydian Way, healers and spiritual guidance are required now more than ever. Sentinels and Justicars are sorely needed to aid Alliance ground forces in pushing back the monstrous local predators and safeguarding Vero's people. The Selkath have also traced lack of Kolto production to a group of Imperial-Sympathetic terrorists in one of their underwater facilities, unless they’re dealt with, Kolto production may be forever stalled.
And of course, as always - Bring Your Own Objective!
