[Taldryan] Caelus Chronicles Chapter 3: The Bastion (Results)
Important message from the office of the Taldryan Consul:
Last night, forces of Taldryan have attacked the former imperial prison known as the Bastion on the moon Orth. Once the lead ship of the imperial garrison of the Caelus system, the Imperial I-class Stardestroyer was repurposed into a prison after a coup following the events of the galactic concordance. Over the past decade, the prison became a tolerated black market for salvaged technology with more recent intel indicating that terrorists were working on restoring the Bastion for their own use. Well aware of this imminent danger to the Caelus system and its citizens, Astor Ky'Lian reached out to the forces of Taldryan, requesting the Clan's assistance in dealing with the threat.
Following the request, Taldryan sent out two strike teams.
During the first attack wave, Warlord Andrelious Mimosa-Inahj and Licon Inahj led an aerial attack against the Stardestroyer's anti-air artillery which was countered by the Bastion mobilizing its lone functioning Tie-Fighter squadron. The following skirmish above the stardestroyer allowed a second strike team including Prophet Halcyon Rokir Taldrya, Mystic Justinios Drake, Savant Arvalis Raith and Colonel Quejo to enter the Bastion unnoticed through maintenance shafts.
After dealing with initial resistance, the second strike team successfully made its way to the ships main-reactor where they placed Ion-grenades in strategical positions to deal the most non destructive damage to the Bastion.
When the second team reported its mission objective as success, a specialized exfiltration team was sent to the Bastions main hangar to pick up the second strike team and return it to the Paragon that had moved into an orbit above Orth to provide heavy direct-fire in case the mission turns out unsuccessful.
Neither happened and the two Taldryan strike teams returned save and sound to the Paragon with the Bastion's main reactor being disabled.

Thank you for all your submissions you gave me quite a hard time grading the events of this chapter. As for the parts that will become canon, both the graphics submitted by Arvalis and Raistline will become official canon with Arvalis artwork being displayed on the underside of the Bastion should it ever get skyborn again and Raistline's work becoming the noseart for the Bastion's Tie-Fighter squadron.
As for the Co-Op fiction, each of the three teams submitted outstanding fictions and I would have loved to give all of them a 1 st Place but this was out of discussion. However to make up for this I contacted all of them and discussed the above mission report that gives all of them a canon appearance.
Chapter III: The Bastion – Aftermath
In return for our continued assistance in the local governments fight against the terrorist Vishes and his followers, Astor Ky'Lian has decided to grant the Clan control over a small sector on Chyron. while largely used for industrial purposes in the past, this sector includes a spaceport large enough to service capital starships and several construction sites to build us a new home as well as direct access to the other two sectors of the colonized parts of the ecunemopolis.
