The only battle that I can recall in galactic history that dealt with Nar Shaddaa was during The Battle of Nar Shaddaa in 1BBY, which was one of the earliest battles in the Galactic Civil War. At the time, an Imperial task force under Darth Vader’s command was searching for Rebel bases in an effort to uncover their supply lines. At the Attack at Datar, a previous engagement in this campaign, Imperial forces managed to defeat the Rebels, but no Rebels were taken alive. Without prisoners to interrogate, the Empire was unable to determine where the Rebels were shipping their weapons.
Meanwhile, the Alliance was busily using a warehouse in Level 88 of the Corellian Sector of Nar Shaddaa as a major node in its supply network. Weapons would arrive hidden in a variety of cargo shipments, and be transferred to blockade runners which delivered them to Rebel bases all over the galaxy. Now we jump some years in the future, Where we had an ongoing campaign with the alliance of the Affiliated Free Systems, Dantooine, Tython, Yavin. And not counting out the citizens of Nar Shaddaa to stop The combined forces of Darth Malen and her brotherhood and pure blood Sith from Rakata. The alliance started their campaign by first clearing the droids from Lower Nar Shaddaa and disabling the heavy tanks and then They moved onto the aerial battle lead by Captain Bade. Several fighters were shot down including Master Thalia Spintrus. The crash left them wounded. As that was going on, a team of three made it into the Black Sun Casino and activated the self-destruct for all the droids. Master Thalia Spintrus is credited with disabling the TIE droid controls which allowed the ground forces to land on the surface but Lania Magic and Suvi Igaly were the ones that located and disabled the droid control center that deactivated all the ground droids. This was only the first and second operation. As you can see in the picture of above, the final operation left Nar Shadda devastated. My source who was there told me that the battle took roughly about 6-7 hours. Darth Malen and her associates save one who was there in hologram only were all forced to flee and were all injured. Jedi knight Emily Bloobury was the one that defeated the last sith causing them to flee the moon. I was told that the injuries were numerous. On the Allied side, several Jedi took wounds Master Thalia Spintrus, Master Tanira Raman, and Padawan Karma Meifft. The fall out left many homeless and effort by KoJ’s fleet are being used to assisting in relief work. Who knows how long it will take to rebuild Nar Shadda but in the minds of some Nar Shadda will never be the same again. GNW will keep update on the future events on Nar Shadda as they come.
The Galatic Federation of Free Republic senate voted on modifications to the Constitution.
GNW learned that the modifications was only made in the area of the excutive office dealing with how long the terms of office that excutive branch could hold as well as if a special vote can be held if the previous member of the excutive branch can be replaced if they can’t uphold their office. GNW has copy of the old Constitution which we will show you but we also have a copy of the new changes which we will also show.
The old Constitution:
Executives of the Federation
Section 1: The Executive of The Federation consists of 3 positions namely Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and Secretary of State, to be elected or appointed as the case may be in the manner enumerated subsequently. The authority and powers of the Executive flows from the elected congress. All elected officials will hold their positions for 4 months time (elected periods) and may only run for 3 terms unless the amount of terms allowed to be served is extended by a unanimous vote by the current members of the Congress.
Section 1 – Subsection 1: No person may hold more than one Executive Position of the Federation concurrently except as an interim emergency measure in times of incapacitation or abduction. Such interim measures cannot exceed a duration of 1 month or until fresh elections are held whichever is sooner.
The Changes to the Constitution:
Executives of the Federation
Section 1: The Executive of The Federation consists of 3 positions namely Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and Secretary of State, to be elected or appointed as the case may be in the manner enumerated subsequently. The authority and powers of the Executive flows from the elected Congress.
Section 1 Amendment (11/5): All elected officials (Executive and Representative) will hold their positions for 3 months time [1 month rl], and may only run for a maximum of 4 consecutive terms [4 months rl], unless the amount of terms allowed to be served is extended by a unanimous vote by the current members of the Congress.
((Terms are run 1st of the month to last of the month. Elections are done two weeks before end of the month, (the middle of the month), so that if someone new is elected, it gives time for the current holder to get the new representative situated before their term starts, and gives them time to handle any unfinished business before their term ends.))
Section 1 – Subsection 1: No person may hold more than one Executive/Representative Position of the Federation concurrently except as an interim emergency measure in times of incapacitation or abduction. Such interim measures cannot exceed a duration of 1 month or until fresh elections are held whichever is sooner.
GNW will keep you updated with any other votes or changes we learn from the GFFR Senate.
GNW visited the office of the Madam Chair of the Galactic Federation of Free Republics. While we were there, We spoke with Madam Chair Tiplaria. Madam Chair Tiplaria was once the senator of Yavin IV. She said, “The reason why I became senator of Yavin IV was because I wanted to serve and make a difference. I felt that Yavin IV needed me and I ran for chair because I felt that all member of the federation needed me. To be honest, I felt like the Federation was hanging on by a string and the weaving fabric of our system government need to be mended or the whole tapestry would fall a part.”
We at GNW wondered what made the Madam Chair come to this conclusion that the Federation was going to fall a part if she didn’t step in. She Said, “The low numbers at the Senate meeting concern me. I felt that our former Madam Chair Alita need help and I would have ran as her Vice Chair this year if she had ran again.”
GNW learned that Madam Chair Tiplaria term will be up this month. We were wondering if she plans to run for a second term she had this to say, “My First term was a rough start. I wasn’t expecting a war with another nation and Bespin and Tython pulling away from the federation. Honestly, I felt like it was my fault that they had left because being the leader and all blame falls on me and they left on my watch. Because of my desire for the federation to become a powerful force for freedom and democracy and to increase in membership with other govern bodies joining us and being part of same banner, I felt heart broken when they left and my vision for GFFR was crushed. I went out of my way to bring them back. I can say I felt happy when Bespin was liberated and brought back home. I am still working on bringing Tython home. I have much more I want to do so Yes I plan to run again for a second term.”
GNW heard about Madam Chair Tiplaria talked about how her vision for GFFR was crushed and we wanted to know what is her vision for the Galactic Federation of Free Republic. She said, “In my vision where there were few Govern System standing united I see a large number like the heavenly stars united under one banner. I see a united arm force defending and protecting its citizens and it allies. I see The GFFR as leading force for freedoms and democracy. I see the senate leading by example and not just holding a title. I see all our govern system prospering. I see many people gathering to Yavin IV, Bespin, New Alderaan, The Republic of Balmorra, Fel Empire and many more govern systems that will join us in the future. I even see things mending with Tython and people gathering to her as well.”
GNW will keep you updated on more events on Madam Chair Tiplaria as they come.

I suggest we begin to hire as many mercenaries as possible, and spread the word that every able bodied man and woman has the opportunity to help retake the moon that rightfully belongs to us. I implore everyone present to do all that they can to aid us.” Lady Thalia offer KOJ forces as ground trooper but also said they wasn’t an army. She also offer to supply assistance in away of capital ships. Mad respond by saying that he also spoke with DJE and said they offer their support.
