Styx - A "Simple" Gas Giant
What was seemingly nothing more than a Gas Giant in the literal middle of nowhere was actually much, much more. With the collapse of the Sith Empire came the flight of personnel, both loyal and subjugated, into the various regions of the Galaxy. Some of these individuals sought political asylum within the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and in an attempt to bribe their way into safety, they provided the government with coordinates to a world that was utilized as the location of a Sith research and development facility: known as Thanatos. To this end, the CIS dispatched a small unit of elite personnel, known as the Dread Guard, into this region of space in order to investigate this station; and to claim any and all spoils that they could get their hands on.
To this end, a quartet of vessels surged forth from the depths of Hyperspace. The first of which was the Blue Krait, a Scion-class Stealth Corvette whose cloaking device was active. It was flanked by a duo of San Hill-class Star Destroyers and a Sovereign-class Heavy Cruiser. The Mandalorian known as Isley Verd stood upon the bridge of the Blue Krait, awaiting the arrival of his comrades from the Dread Guard to join him. Here, he would brief them on their mission; whilst the three large vessels handled facing off against the planetary defenses placed upon the Gas Giant's moons. "Dread Guard, report to the Bridge. I repeat, Dread Guard, report to the Bridge."
