Operation Black Flag
Owner: The Republic
Population: 1.7 Billion
Point Of Conflict: Phyllo
"Unlike the recent planetary invasions others had been launching against one another. Such as the hasty assault by the Mandalorian's on Dromund Kaas, or the Sith's own against Manaan. The preparations by Black Sun had been meticulous. Ever since the fall of Nar Shaddaa; Rayl Wilded and others had been preparing a counter. And it was finally time for them to test the waters. Daalang would be that test".

The Defias hurtled through Hyperspace. A few other warships accompanied her for protection. A large scale fleet battle was not anticipated, if any at all. The Sith Navy was still well and alive, and served as a great distraction for the bulk of Republic forces fighting into red space. The timing was perfect to retake their worlds with a minimum of losses. If a larger protracted war were to unfold, they were well prepared to fight one. And the Republic would not be able to get the drop on them like they did previously.
"Helmsman prepare to descend from hyperspace. Comms, notify the other ships". Rayl sat further back into his seat, a small preparation for when they slip back to real space.
"Ay sir, will do". The Comms officer relayed the message to prep.
"Daalang we will bring you back". Rayl whispered. He was ready, his forces were ready. "Kill the speed"! Rayl felt a small push on his chest as The Defias made the transition. The big dirtball came well in to view. His orders to kill the speed of course weren't actually followed by any person, he simply timed the computer responsible for that operation. The task force sized flotilla moved full speed towards Daalang. The battle would soon commence and the thunder and pews of guns would roar once more.
"Nothing on the scopes sir. We're free and clear this side of the rock".
Excellent news. Not having a pesky warship to bother the streams of dropships, gunships, fighters and bombers to soon be pouring out of their holds. Rayl fiddled with a communicator to send out a message. "@[member="Domino"], you know what to do". The fun was to begin. "Launch the first wave"!
"The Lord Military Commander of Black Sun, Rayl Wilded. The man given the authority to launch this invasion by the Vigo to take back their worlds. Would be leading his soldiers directly into battle. Maybe it was his roots as a pirate that gave him such bravery. Few other commanders unlike Jedi or other Force users would be willing to do so. I respect the man more, though, being a pacifist I loath war. I'm compelled to follow this story and the man into the depths".

Hydraulic motors whirred to open the giant hanger doors of these capital ships. The shielding kept the vacuum of space from taking its deathly grip on their throats. Daalang's brownish black hue encompassed the whole view outside. It was always a sight to look upon something so much larger than you. Rayl cut short the sight seeing, he'd have time for that latter, should his luck hold. He breathed out, time to rally the troops spirits. Rayl retrieved the same communicator from his pocket he'd used earlier. He'd be heard by every soldier on each ship, along with their crews. "Black Sun. But a few months ago it was I who personally handed Nar Shaddaa over to The Republic. While Domino seemingly abandoned us and much of the criminal higher ups fled as well. I was one of the few to try and toe the line. We know saboteurs destroyed the planetary shielding though, and we were heavily outgunned, I negotiated to fight another day. And in doing so we are here today, not the blindsided men and women we were that day. Never again will Black Sun be kept under anyone elses thumb. We will fly the black flag in war, and remind the galaxy we're not just the shadows lurking. But we are a force to be reckoned! Fight for honor and victory. For Black Sun"!
Also please note artistic liberty was taken for the image of Daalang and some of its information, as nothing exists to tell me otherwise. Or has been taking into account the passage of time. If you know of anything. Please tell me and I'll make changes.
