Rumors have been circulating throughout the Empire for months now of a battle between the terrorist group “Rebel Alliance” and the Empire, that allegedly ended in the destruction of an Imperial Space Station. The destruction of the planet Alderaan has likewise been attributed to Imperial aggression in these rumors. Details have been sketchy, and the events in question have been manipulated by the rebel terrorists as anti-Imperial propaganda.
Now, thanks to recently declassified information, the citizens of the Empire can know the truth. COMPNOR Spokesperson Bront Autin of the Coalition for Progress has issued the following statement:
“The Rebel Alliance is a terrorist organization that is bent upon the removal of the lawfully elected Emperor and the destruction of the Empire as a whole. The stated goal of the Rebel Alliance is to restore the Republic, which had previously failed to stop a galaxy wide war and had been proven to be corrupt and acting in the interests of the commerce guilds instead of the people of the galaxy.
Until recently, the Alliance was not a serious threat. However, somehow they obtained knowledge of the Empire’s new Dynasty Class Diplomatic space station, the DS-1, which the Rebels code named “Death Star”.
Rebel agitators on Alderaan manipulated the governing royal house of Organa into declaring war with the Empire and attacked the nearby station. It was forced to defend itself, and easily defeated the Organa separatists. Rather than admit defeat, the Organna rebels detonated a secret weapon which destroyed their own world.
We have it on good authority that a surviving member of the house of Organa is organizing the Rebel Alliance and attempting to bring this sort of destruction to the rest of the core worlds. That she would be complicit in her own planet’s destruction and then conspire to do the same to countless other worlds tells you much about the nature of this so-called Republic they claim to support.
The Rebel Alliance wasted no time blaming the Empire for the loss of Alderaan and used this as a flimsy justification for their acts of terror. Lead to Yavin under the false pretenses of peace talks, the Rebel Alliance lead an attack on the DS-1. Luke Skywalker fired the shot that destroyed DS-1 killing over 1 million Imperial officers, personnel and private citizens. Like the Princess Leia Organa, he is heralded as a hero of the Alliance. That these individuals, responsible for millions of lives lost, are the heroes of this Rebel Alliance tells you much about their true nature.
We at COMPNOR extend our heartfelt sympathies to the survivors of Alderaan and the madness of the Organa Royal House, and to the families of the millions of Imperial military and civilian personnel stationed aboard the DS1. Rest assured, their deaths will be avenged and these Rebels brought to justice."
It’s sobering news to learn of this scale of terror being perpetrated against the loyal citizens of the Empire. We at Holonet News would also like to extend our sympathies. However, it’s also important to ensure these terrorists are stopped.
If any citizens suspect their neighbors, friends, or even family members of being Rebel Sympathizers, be sure to contact your local COMPNOR offices via any holonet terminal. It’s the only way we can prevent another Alderaan.
