Casualties of War
Adhara - a relatively insignificant fringe planet, home to only a few colonists and astrophysicists. Until the last war. Adhara had already been designated a safe haven for Vasudan refugees from the NTF - soon it was full of the refugees from Capella. Filled with angry, dissilusioned Vasudans, Adhara is a troublespot for the Vasudan Empire. Already devolved from direct GTVA control, Adhara remains a hotspot of anti-GTVA and anti-Terran radicals.... prompting the GTVA to remove most of the defensive fleet away from the system. It is only a mothballed Typhon destroyer - the Queb - and a cluster of cruisers, controlled by Adharan miltia that currently defend the system - enough to dissuade any active attacks by the Adharans on GTVA ships in the surrounding systems, and any bid for independence. Until now........
Casualties of War II - WaterLord
6 months after the Upuaat incident Deep in a nebula, a large deposit of ice has been found. Simple water, one of the hardest items to come by in space. Asteroids within nebula are almost 100 % pure water, and this find, if seen through to fuition, could conceivably yield 100's of trillions of barrels worth of water. These asteroids are simply chunks of ice floating in a nebula that until now has had little worth, strategically, tactically, or economically.
Due to the little value placed on the system, ownership has never quite been established, and the area has been known as a free zone.
Two days after the find, a planetary governor for a neighboring system dies, his successor has already been appointed. However others quickly step up to fill the power vaccuum, including 1 person with popular support as well as military, and another who was responsible for economic growth within said system. 3 days after the premier dies, our military friend steps up and perform a coupe de etat on the rightful new premier and siezes all assets. He also sends the local military forces into the nebula and assumes control of the ice.
3 large corporations also have an investment within this system, and send mercenaries in.
this system of little value has suddenly become a hotbed of activity with far reaching ramifications, and the GTVA is forced to react, sending in the SOC.
Casusalties of War iii - Iron Resolve
Three years have passed since the SOC stopped the Free Adhara Alliance. Now the SOC is being sent back in. the Free Adhara Alliance has been rebuilding. A number of criminal organizations have also popped up.
Three weeks ago an assassination attempt on the Adharan Premier was repelled. It is feared that many of local law enforcers are corrupt, so the Premier asked, and received an S.O.C. team. It was the Free Adhara Alliance. Also implicated were one of the biggest criminal organizations, and a former member of Vasudan Intelligence. Highly trained in counter intel, he has disappeared.
One week ago, a team was sent back in. The objective was to act covertly to keep the FAA off balance, and to use "any means necessary" to loosen the stranglehold of the criminal organizations.
Three days ago this team was destroyed. Broken transmissions were received, but nothing conclusive. Whoever hit them knew where they would be, and when they would be there. Point of contact for the team was being held on suspicious charges and could not help them. He is still being held by authorities on Adhara.
The SoC is going in, we want know what happened to our team, who is behind this, and who is behind the assassination attempt.
