Taris

Post  Jayden Fey on 18/11/11, 12:10 am



"The prejudice, the rich spoiling themselves while the poor are crushed beneath them—not a pretty picture."
―Carth Onasi

Taris was an urban planet in the fifth orbit of its star, located in the Taris system, within the Ojoster sector, of the Outer Rim Territories, in turn Taris was orbited by four moons, including Rogue. The term Tarisian was used to describe people and products from the planet. The planet's ecumenopolis quickly developed over a century of prosperity, and as a result the planet suffered from massive overpopulation. Once a galactic nexus, Taris' importance declined with the introduction of improved trade routes, and the planet rapidly fell into decay. The remainder of the planet's history was wrought with civil disorder and social unrest. As it turned to industry as a means of compensation for its economic troubles, its oceans became polluted, eliminating the planet's main food source. Famine spread among the lower classes while the rich hoarded what few supplies remained. The resulting strife led to the Tarisian Civil War, the start of lasting prejudices between the Humanocentric Tarisian nobles and the largely alien underclass. The city became segmented, and the lower classes were banned from living in the upper levels of Taris.

During the Mandalorian Wars, Taris served as a crucial rallying point for dissident Jedi who had decided to fight against the invading Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders. As the lower classes were crushed beneath the rich, crime became rampant, and the Tarisian government did little in response. This caused Lhosan Industries, a mining company which employed half of the planet's lower class in its operation, to leave Taris. The millions left unemployed rioted against the government, kidnapping the planet's senator in the Galactic Senate as well as the local constable. This caused the local Jedi to leave Taris as well, leaving the planet in a state of chaos, as the war raged on around it.

By the time of the Jedi Civil War, order had been restored, but swoop gangs and crime still held sway over the Lower City. During the war, Taris was conquered by the Revan's Sith Empire, which quarantined the planet in an attempt to capture Jedi Bastila Shan. As the search continued fruitlessly, the Sith leader Darth Malak, ordered the bombardment of Taris, killing countless civilians. This act had huge political repercussions for the Sith and changed the tone of the rest of the war, showing Malak and the Sith's true colors, the desire to achieve victory at any cost.

Over the next few millennia the planet managed to rebuild and recover from its devastation, though never reaching the extent of its former glory. Similar to other ecumenopolies like Coruscant and Nar Shaddaa, the upper levels were safe and secure, inhabited by the wealthy, while the lower levels were frequently plagued by gang warfare and inhabited by thugs and the poor.

During the Great Galactic War, Taris had become the subject to both Jedi and Sith plans; while the Jedi wanted to rebuild the planet to prove to the people of the Republic that they were strong enough to recover from such a disaster, and with it raise morale, the Sith sought to foil their plans, to prove that the Republic couldn't recover from such a thing.

*Not far from the planet Taris a once Republic ship that had been stolen and turned into a pirate was out on its usual scouting mission. The ship was named Fireclaw 2 since it was the second Marauder-Class Corvette that the Blood Dragon pirates had stolen. The ship like many other they had taken had gone through some major modifications making it a more powerful ship than the original design.

The ship was actually out looking for lone Imperial patrols just to take their ships and make their fleet all the more bigger. They were planning something big and so they would need all the fire power they could get and so who better to go to than the Imperials.*

*The Fast-Snap was orbiting the planet at the time of the pirate arrival. The Ardent-class frigate was carrying 4 Nune-class Imperial shuttles and 12 Predator-class fighters. Now to the untrained eyes the ship looked very powerful, which is was yet it had weak shields and armor. Which is something the worries the captain. George Burta was a old Admiral who used to lead large amounts of imperial fleets yet was now to old and was tasked to guard this world.*

*The captain of the Fireclaw 2 smirked as he found his first target of the day and it was a rather nice looking ship so he couldn't pass up this opportunity. Even without him saying a word everyone was already getting to work because they all knew what to do when they found a ship and that was to attempt to take it. So quickly communications were jammed so it couldn't call for back up and the starfighters were readied along with the boarding shuttles.

Once all was ready the captain gave the signal and immediately after the sounds of guns being fired could be heard. They were probably still out of the range of the other ship but they had payed some good money for two long range turbo lasers to be installed to their ship and so they would already be causing some damage before they even got within its range.*

*The Fast-Snap shook as it was hit by enemy fire.*

=George Burta=
"I want all of are weapons maned now, get the starfighters mobilized and contact HQ!"

=Officer=
"Sir, are communication are being jammed."


*Burta cursed under his breath, they were on there own this is not good. As the 12 Predator-class fighters were mobilizing the heavy turolasers fired back at the pirate vessels.*

*The captain of the Fireclaw 2 laughed as the enemy ship tried to return fire while they were still to far for their guns to reach them. Though as they now had their attention he yelled for shields to be brought online and for the shuttle to be launched. Out from their hangar an old but heavily modified Republic Shuttle took off along with two Scurrg H-6 Bombers as escorts. This shuttle was aiming straight for the ships hangar bay and should they try to close it on them the bombers would just blow a hole in it.

Meanwhile before the Imperial ship had been aware of them two Katarn-Class boarding shuttles and secretly flown up behind the ship. They were already attempting to dock with the ship and if they did their fusion cutters would begin to try and cut a hole in their hull for their troops to board near the back of the ship. As that was going on the Fireclaw two fearlessly charged forward towards the Imperial ship and let off a volley of torpedoes to give the final bunch to knock their shields down.*

*The Fast-Snap counties to fire on the enemy as the starfighers launched. As the torpedoes start to slam into the imperial ship hindering the shield the 12 Predator-class fighters engage the two Katarn-Class boarding shuttles. It became clear this was not a GA or Mando attack, they didn't want the system they wanted the ship. The attack formation was perfect to cripple a lone ship like this. *

=George Burta=
"Get the marine teams on high alert. Lock down section of the ship that is not needed and then shut off the air supply to those places."


*Captain Burta just hopped he has reacted quick enough, the Empire could not afford to loose a signal ship like the Fast-Snap.*

*The katarn ships had already docked on either ship of the Imperial ship and was unloading its troops. Their were 50 aboard each of them and now they were storming the ship like crazy though even as the began to rush into the ship their HUD's told them that air was being released from the sectors they were in luckily their armor provided them with at least an hours worth of air so all they had to do was get the hell out of here.

Outside the katarn ships were taking a beating but they had their strong shields to hold off an attack for a short while. Thankfully finally the Fireclaw 2 had sent out the rest of its fighters because it had been waiting for the Imperial ship to do so first so now they were attack their fighters to prevent them from destroying the boarding shuttles. Also the old Republic Shuttle had gone on without any interference and so now was inside the Imperial ship's hangar. Even before it completely landed it opened its doors and two Blood Dragons jumped out with T-21 light repeating blasters and they quickly opened fire on any troops that might have been in the hangar. Behind them more troops came rushing out but most of them were equipped with the old but powerful Republic carbine and they too began to shoot.

The FireClaw 2 was holding out strong as it had already been damaging the Imperial ship long before it had started to hit them. Though now they were concentrating their fire on the Imperial ship's weapons instead of the hull. They wanted that ship bad and they were going to take fighting as hard as they could.*

"Sir, we are taking heavy damage and we are being boarded!"

=George Burta=
"Just make sure the ship is locked down and send in all marines we have. Keep a steady attack on the enemy ships, we need to stay strong."


*Burta said even though he knew this did not look good. The marines were originally numbered at a 100 yet those numbers were falling fast. Majority of the marines were in the hangers along with the normal stormtroopers. The blaster proof doors that lead to the rest of the ship were lock and ray shields were up. That barrier was 2nd strongest next to the entrance to the bridge. In the halls of a the small six man portals had to deal with the invading pirates. That was where the battle was trickiest, some marines were reading mines to block the pirate advance as they moved through the ship yet, if an explosion was just a little to big it would blow a whole in the hull of the ship and suck out all in the section.*

=Blood Dragons=
*In total there had been 130 pirates that had boarded the ship 50 to each katarn shuttle and 30 to the republic shuttle. That meant there was 50 troops on either side of the ship making their way to the bridge from the back of the ship. 30 were fighting strong in the hangar bay where there seemed to be a strong presence of marines and stormtroopers. They were so far taking even casualties but so far they seemed to have the upper hand in this fight.

The two groups of 50 troops hadn't met much resistance in the ship halls since most of those sections had become void of air. Though they had an easier time without knowing it since they only had to deal with a few locked doors which their hackers quickly opened and if not they had specialized bombs to use on board ships to open doors. They would soon be upon the bridge and close to 95 troops were left from those two groups but now it all depended on if they made it at the same time.

In the hangar all 30 pirates were taking cover and were fighting off what ever marines were and stormtroopers they came across though probably unknown to the crew of the ship they were just the distraction. A hangar bay was used to let out ships and other troops so if they took the hangar they wouldn't be able to board their ship or let anymore starfighters out not to mention normally the most heaviest concentration of troops is near the hangar bays. So basically they were drawing attention away from the main attack while the Fireclaw 2 attempted to cripple their weapons systems.*

"Sir, they are hacking their were through the locked doors."

=George Burta=
"Shut off power to does parts of the ship. The doors can't be hacked with out power."


*The order was followed and about 80% of the ship went dark. This now longer was a space battle, it was a ground battle as if the Fast-Snap was a military base. The situation in the hanger looked promising yet that did nothing to easy the worry of the officers in the bridge. There were still booms as the ship was hit, parts were failing and the ship if it keep being abused would start to fail all together. In the halls the marine teams became more frequent as the pirates got closer to the bridge. Two final teams were stationed outside the bridge, which was eight marines total. Within the bridge was another team of four. They were a last hold out and it was starting to look like the fate of the ship was going to be resting in their hands for the Empire's sake.*

*At one point Team A was waiting at a locked door as someone was starting to hack it but the all of a sudden the lights went off and they were now in the dark. Lights on their weapons and armor were turned on and they all heard the curse come from the man hacking the door. He turned to the rest and shook his head as there was no way to hack the door now so they were basically locked in. They were also getting reports of the team in the hangar bay was suffering heavy losses and so they needed to get through this door quickly. So the lead pirate motioned for the explosive experts on their team to bust that door open and so they quickly got on it. Soon with a small explosion the door was open and they were on their way again.

Team B had already encountered the power problem and were making faster progress than Team A and so they were already back to fighting in the cramped corridors of the Imperial ship. The only thing that was on their side was that they had greater numbers than any group they encountered in the ship halls ad so they were probably easily over run. Even with this they were still having men of their own die but as they fell they just continued on leaving even the wounded behind. Eventually they would be the first group to make it to the bridge with a total of only 25 pirates left which was half of what they had started with.*

*Holding on, only way to describe what the imperials were doing now. Every team stood there ground even when they saw they were going to die, the did not retreat. If the ship was lost it was lost they had no need to plead or beg. The situation in the hanger being better then everyone else in the ship the decision was made to attempt and escape to get reinforcements.

Two of the marines made their way into 2/4 Nune-class Imperial shuttles. The engines roared to life and the shuttles flew into the pirate presence and out into orbit. They quickly ready their individual hyperdrives and hoped they made the jump before the pirates had a change to target them. *

*What was left of the pirates in the hangar was soon finding themselves diving for cover as two shuttles attempted to leave the ship. As soon as this happened on of the Blood Dragons contacted the Fireclaw 2 informing them of some run away Imperials. Immediately the captain ordered the closest long range turbo laser to fire on those shuttles but it was unlikely they could get both of them. At least they might be able to destroy one and damage the other so that ti wouldn't be able to complete its full hyperspace jump.

On the Imperial ship Team A was encountering more resistance than Team B had they were starting to get annoyed at these Imperials as they never gave up. Sadly for them the Blood Dragons never gave up either and so they continue to push forward. Team B on the other hand was already dealing with the troops outside of the bridge and they continued to fight strong since they still outnumbered them. Though should they successfully get rid of every last one of them their hacker would begin to hacking the bridge doors to let their team in.*

*The attack hit one of the shuttles and then it was over for that marine, more shots came and the shuttle exploded. Yet the other shuttle was able to avoid the long range turbo laser fire and jumped to hyperspace.

The marines protecting the bride opened fire. At the same time the detonated the mines they had placed would shattered the hall leaping to the bride. The marines keep firing in the confusion using their heat vision in order to keep see their targets. While in the bridge a calmness appeared as they heard the conflict just outisde the blast proof doors.*

*In the explosion a good 20 pirates died leaving only 5 left from Team B to fight off the marines at the bridge though now that they were down to only 5 they began to take more careful tactics. They were hiding behind corners and what ever else they could as they fired back and forth with the enemy marines. If Team A didn't get here soon this could be the end of Team B Along with the pirates in the hangar since who knew how much longer they could hold out for.

Team A was starting to make up for lost time though they only had 30 left in their group but they still pushed on and where almost at the fight near the bridge. They were so close they could hear the fighting and so this just made them go faster to join in on the fight. Soon enough there was a total of 35 pirates fighting at the bridge and that was from a good 100 that had boarded the ship. many had lost their lives in this fight and so they weren't about to give up as they had fellow pirates to avenge.*

=George Burta=
"Abandon ship!"


*The captain said as he realized the bridge would be preach soon. He ordered the marines in the bridge to go with the officers and make sure they were safe on Taris. Burta stayed alone in the bridge and turned on the auto targeting systems of the ship, the few weapons the remained would give cover fire form the escape pods. In the hanger then remaining stormtroopers and marines were making use of the two shuttles that remained and quickly made their evacuation, which was down as swift as the first. The fighting damaged these shuttles some yet all they had to do was land on the surface of Taris not jump to hyperspace.

The noise of the fight got louder just outside the blast doors, it was the only noise that filled the bridge, the fight was over. Captain George Burta then raised his blaster pistol to his head and shot himself in his temple; killing him instantly.*

From aboard the Fireclaw 2 the Captain looked on as he could see escape pods and the remaining shuttles make their way for Taris. Shortly after that all guns stopped firing at them and everything was quiet. he could hear cheers over the com as his men celebrated over their victory in capturing the ship.

On the Imperial ship the pirates let the Imperials get away and soon enough they were in the bridge and were soon getting it ready to leave. the damage sustained to the ship was impressive but it was still hyperspace ready which was what they were going for. So all remaining pirates on the ship were ordered to the bridge and when they all got there they did a head count and only 40 had survived.

All starfighters and the two katarn shuttles made their way back to the Fireclaw 2 and and the ship quickly turned around. Both the Imperial ship and the Fireclaw 2 were readied for hyperspace and soon enough they both disappeared as they wanted to get away before any reinforcements could arrive.

Recently the city had been largly destroyed by invading Mandalorian forces. And now the Tarisians are trying to rebuild. With the help of the Mandalorians they will succeed. After the rebuild the Mandalorians declared it 'Aruet'haran' which translates to 'The Outsider Hell'.

The Mandalorians had only destroyed five, fifty square mile areas. The 3,000 Mandalorian Verda quickly land and start occupying the city. They also bring with them building supplies that they sold to the civilians for a large profit.

Food and other supplies were also being sold to the Tarisians with a huge markup. The Mandalorian Treasury was already growing.

As the Tarisians rebuilt Jaccien imposed a heavy tax on these Tarisians. They paid it, but were not happy about it.

Jacciens ships in the area -pack up most of their ground forces, but leave a few to make sure the Tarisians don't stop building, or stop paying taxes.

After getting all of their things ready they pack up and leave towards Mandalore.
