Mysterious ship that appeared near barrier few days ago was today attacked by Solas Tempus strike force after getting confirmation that crewman that disappeared are aboard.
STV Epoch and 2 squadrons of Peregrine fighters accompanied by Jaina and Tal Ravis in their own fighters (X-Wing and Scimitar respectively) attacked the heavy-armed vessel. During the attack the ship responded with their own squadrons, destroying at least 2 fighters in initial contact. Shortly after pilots of Peregrines started feeling weird about whole fight, some even fleeing field of combat. This was later confirmed to be a form of psionic attack known as Battle Meditation. Reports from the Epoch crew show that they suffered similar symptoms.
We received statement from one of pilots, flight officer Gabrielle Valenzuela;
It was like back head feeling that you are about to die, you instinctively want to run, find safe place, it was hard to resist, I was among ones that did run away. I'm not proud of that but it was like that, I was afraid of death. Hell I couldn't even believe that we all risked life for one random person! Now I do feel bad about it, after all every life is important.
After ship defences were lowered, strike team composed of Jedi Master Reman and Tobi Angelos beamed aboard to search ship for missing personnel and Jyn. After they found Jyn the strike team was forced to fight through her own enraged attacks, before Jyn managed to injure Reman who holds to the story that he allowed this to happen. Just before getting tackled to ground and was knocked unconscious. Jyn is currently resting in sickbay, her status has not been made public as yet, though it is known she is allowed select visitors.
The crew of the unknown vessel informed Solas Tempus that it’s designation is INV Raven’s Hand, an Harrower Class Dreadnought. The last words of it’s captain, before one of Sith aboard killed him, asked Captain Leonard of STV Epoch to keep his crew safe. The safety of the crew of the Raven’s are of course being held safely in Solas Tempus custody abiding by the standards of humane treatment of prisoners. Solas Tempus released a statement ensuring that the crew will be treated with dignity and respect during their questioning and debriefing. The future of the enemy vessel is unknown, Solas Tempus declined to comment but rumors suggest the vessel may be either stripped down for research or perhaps refit and introduced into the fleet.
