OPERATION: CLEAR SKY



SECTION I: LIBERATION DAY


MARTIAL INTELLIGENCE DIVISION HEADQUARTERS
KAVA’STARN, BOTHAWUI
BOTHAN SECTOR, MID RIM



"FIRST BRIGADE! A‘TEN-HUH!”

The sharp snap of synthleather echoed through the courtyard as the formation stood at attention. Across their vision marched the hardened figure of Divisional General Dalu Var’aylo, a veteran commander of great respect within the Bothan military’s Martial Intelligence Division. Every single agent in the formation was familiar with the general’s esteemed reputation as a strategist and saboteur. His presence today was a signal of hope to them and to all citizens of Bothawui that conspired covertly against the forces of the Eternal Empire. He turned to address the formation with the utmost determination.

“Agents of the First Brigade, you are here for a singular, unified purpose! Look upon the enemy and know them!”

The general pointed toward the sky. All eyes within the formation followed his gesture and gazed upon the metal machine that loomed over the pale horizon.

“The Eternal Empire is a threat like no other before it, and it has come to the skies of Bothawui! The Star Fortress is a symbol of their oppressive power! It must be destroyed!”

The general cast his eyes upon the formation.

“The future of Bothawui--of the free galaxy--depends upon the efforts of us all in this war against the Eternal Empire! We will not stand idle while they rule from their false throne! We will not stand idle while they terrorize the hearts of our people! We will not stand idle while they hold dominion within our very own skies!”

The general raised his clenched fist in solidarity.

“AGENTS, YOU ARE CHOSEN! VAK’KRAI NAH KAEL!”

Ten-thousand voices in total unanimity echoed the general’s battle cry. They saluted him, singular and unified in their purpose. Six months of preparation had brought them to this moment. They were now ready.

At long last, the liberation of Bothawui had begun.

OPERATION: CLEAR SKY



SECTION II: ANALYSIS


MARTIAL INTELLIGENCE DIVISION HEADQUARTERS
KAVA’STARN, BOTHAWUI
BOTHAN SECTOR, MID RIM



"General Var’aylo, begin the briefing.”

The general stepped up to the podium and addressed the gathered hierarchy of military and civilian officers.

“As of this morning, Operation: Clear Sky has been approved by First Secretary Lah’may Kooth’lyn of the Bothan Council. The Martial Intelligence Division, in conjunction with the Republic’s Strategic Information Services, is coordinating the assault on the Eternal Empire’s Star Fortress in orbit above Bothawui.”

The general tapped the control console by his side. A holographic projection of the Star Fortress materialized on display. He pointed to it.

“This is our target, codenamed BLACK STAR. Informants of the MID and SIS have observed that the station is heavily defended by turbo-cannon platforms and short-range interceptors, though the exact defensive firepower of the station is currently unknown. If required, the station is capable of activating a self-automated production facility with the capacity to quickly field a high number of battle-ready Skytroopers in response to external threats as we have already witnessed.”

The general motioned to the projected schematic of the station’s defense grid.

“In addition, an analysis of the station’s energy output suggests an unusually high concentration of plasma radiation being vented through the station’s exhaust system. Doctor Tez Yem of the Tal-Daric Institute will elaborate. Doctor?”

The general stepped aside to allow the human doctor to approach the projected schematic.

“Thank you, General. After months of careful observation, we have determined that the station is powered by a highly dense micro-star.”

A murmur of concern arose within the briefing room. General Var’aylo hushed them before gesturing for Doctor Yem to continue.

“This micro-star is contained within the station itself, supported by energy stabilization technologies to power the station’s systems and prevent catastrophic system failure in the event of damage to the station. However, our analysis of the station suggests that this micro-star produces a far greater energy output than is necessary to power the station’s systems. Given the precise strategic methodologies employed by the Eternal Empire, it seems unlikely that they would develop such a powerful energy source without harnessing its potential as a weapon. This forces us to make a rather alarming conclusion.”

The doctor highlighted a series of active high-output ventilation shafts connecting the station's defense grid. The general returned to address the gathering.

“We believe that this station is equipped with a hyper-velocity plasma beam powered by the micro-star.”

The murmur of concern arose once more before it was silenced by the general.

“If correct, this weapon is the greatest threat facing Bothawui at the present time. However, even against this weapon, the advantage remains in our favor. With the Bothawui planetary shield generator online and at full capacity, our engineers estimate that the shield will be able to withstand approximately
one standard hour of continuous concentrated impact before total shield failure. If their estimation is correct, we will need to strike against BLACK STAR within this time frame to limit civilian casualties.”

The general terminated the projected schematic and nodded to the officers.

“Section leaders, you have already been informed of your designated roles in this operation. We must make the most of the time available to us. Confirm your strike teams tonight and relay this briefing to them. We will reconvene in the morning to discuss the anticipated battle strategy. Until then, review your reports. You are dismissed.”

OPERATION: CLEAR SKY



SECTION III: STRATEGY


MARTIAL INTELLIGENCE DIVISION HEADQUARTERS
KAVA’STARN, BOTHAWUI
BOTHAN SECTOR, MID RIM



”General Var’aylo, please proceed.”

The general stepped forward to address the assembled personnel.

“Section leaders, twenty-four hours from now your strike teams will commence a coordinated assault on BLACK STAR in orbit above Bothawui. The success or failure of Operation: Clear Sky depends upon your precision in the execution of your assignments. To that end, these are your objectives.”

The general tapped the console as a projected schematic of the Star Fortress materialized on the display.

“As we do not know the precise defensive capabilities of BLACK STAR, we must utilize all available elements of camouflage to our advantage against it. At precisely 0730 hours tomorrow, the moon of Regu will orbit through the grid point zero-five blind spot behind Bothawui, preventing BLACK STAR from monitoring the moon's activity and nullifying its ability to detect starships operating within the grid point. The moon will continue its orbit through the blind spot for approximately three hours. During this period of time, Task Force Aurek will deploy their assault frigates from Bothawui to Regu and land inside the Zoth Rift on the moon's surface, accompanied by Task Forces Besh and Cresh as escort. Once inside the canyon, they will power down and maintain total silence for six hours until Regu re-aligns its orbit with BLACK STAR. When the gap between Regu and BLACK STAR is closed, the assault will commence.”

The general altered the projected schematic to focus on the station’s defense grid.

“Task Force Aurek, your objective is to disable all high-output ventilation shafts in quadrants one through four. If our analysis is correct, these ventilation shafts are critical to dispersing the excess plasma generated by the micro-star. By preventing the station from venting this excess plasma, we believe that triggering the plasma beam will overload the station’s systems, forcing catastrophic system failure and, ultimately, the self-destruction of the station. To accomplish this, Task Forces Besh and Cresh will provide cover against turbo-cannon platforms and short-range interceptors, allowing for Aurek to complete their objective. Besh and Cresh, the completion of Aurek’s objective is your top priority. Protect them with your lives.”

With a nod, the general shifted his focus.

“Once the assault has begun, Aurek will have approximately one standard hour to disable all of the designated ventilation shafts necessary to force the station's self-destruction. Upon retaliation against Bothawui's surface, the planetary shield will hold for that one hour. Beyond that, however, Bothawui's surface will become directly exposed to the plasma beam. We must make every effort possible to prevent this exposure in order to minimize potential civilian casualties.”

The general turned off the projection.

“Your objectives are now clear. Review your assignment details before then and make arrangements with your strike teams. A final briefing will be held at 1800 hours tonight to confirm all remaining operations. Operation: Clear Sky launches at dawn tomorrow. You are dismissed.”

OPERATION: CLEAR SKY



SECTION IV: DEPLOYMENT


ZERO-FIVE LAUNCH PLATFORM
FAWK PERIMETER, BOTHAWUI
BOTHAN SECTOR, MID RIM



“CODE ALERT: OPERATION STATUS IS GREEN. REPEAT: OPERATION STATUS IS GREEN. LAUNCH CLEARANCE HAS BEEN APPROVED. RELEASE PROTOCOLS ARE NOW ACTIVE. STANDBY FOR DECK LAUNCH IN FIVE...FOUR...THREE...TWO...ONE...LAUNCH.”

The roar of starship thrusters echoed across the hangar bay as the assembly of strike craft were ejected through the atmosphere of Bothawui. Below them spread the vast mountains and forests of the land. Above them soared the crystalline clouds and the silhouette of the Regu moon. The planetary shadow masked their transit to the targeted sector from all long-range sensors. A column of assault frigates awaited their approach. Communication channels turned online.

“Command to section leaders, this is General Var’aylo. Report your preliminary status.”

A sequence of affirmation was relayed back to the headquarters, confirming that all personnel had cleared the launch platform and were now operational.

“Command to section leaders, Operation: Clear Sky is now in your hands. Maintain communication silence once you have touched down inside the Zoth Rift on the Regu moon. In six hours, you will move to assault BLACK STAR. Utilize the advantage of your approach to strike with swift precision. Remember: you will only have one hour to achieve your objectives without compromising the security of Bothawui. Command will remain on standby to provide you with any necessary tactical updates as the battle progresses. The eyes and ears of Bothawui are now turned upon you, Agents. Vak’krai nah kael!

Vak’krai nah kael, General!” the agents echoed in solidarity.

The formation burned across the black expanse of the stars as the moon of Regu loomed through their vision. Short-range sensors confirmed the moon’s alignment within the grid point zero-five blind spot behind Bothawui as the planetary shadow passed overhead. Low-light scanners detected the deep expanse of the Zoth Rift spiraling across the lunar surface. The formation approached their landing zone and touched down into the chasm. Communication channels were silenced. All non-essential systems turned offline for six hours.

Anticipation filled the void as the agents on board prepared themselves for the impending battle. They watched and waited from their positions, counting down to the terminus. Hours became minutes, minutes became seconds. The horizon loomed across their vision, and with it came the megalithic monstrosity whose shadow threatened to eclipse their world.

The countdown dropped to zero. All systems returned online.

They had been chosen. They would not fail.
