Welcome to this episode of Hydiran Way News, all the news worth reporting, I'm your host Melissa Clairborne.

In a startling development, a new faction claimed responsibility for the Coruscant Incident. Calling themselves the Republic Jedi Guards, they are lead by this man, Jedi Master General Alwar Shahif.


*Cut to video of Jedi Master General Alwar Shahif, speaking in accented Galactic Standard, complete with alien language translations. *

"For Centuries, the Republic and the Jedi have allowed the Sith to spread, making them a threat to peace in our galaxy. The Senate is weak and corrupt, filled with political deadwood. It is time for a change. It is time for the Republic and the Jedi to take back what is by rights ours. We had started the purge in the Senate with that traitorous pacifist Senator Drigg'bgg'igg'lgglesen of Anaxes. Even as we speak Republic Warships are now pacifying Anaxes. Let this serve as a warning join the Republic or we will annex your worlds with the Force, combined with the naval might of the Republic and the Jedi. Any who resist will be dealt harshly."

*Cut back to the studio.*

Truly disturbing news, as word of this new group spread like wildfire to the unaligned worlds. We have received reports of mass protests, burning of Republic and Jedi standards and militarization of long dormant fleets. What possible reason could the Republic and the Jedi have behind this sinister plot? What innocent world would next fall to the predations of their combined might?

These questions and more will be answered by this reporter in future episodes. My name is Melissa Clairborne and this has been the Hydiran Way News.
