New Ships Bring Security to the Republic

Today marks another great landmark for the Republic as construction was finalized just minutes before our tour of the Thranta Mk 2 Class ship that is currently stationed at Bespin. After nearly three weeks of construction, we finally got the opportunity to not only have a good look around, but also to get some of the details about this creative design from it’s designer, Rhialto Tereshechenko who is also the Baron Administrator of new Tibannopolis Bespin, Shipwright, and member of the Republic.

First we visited the main Bridge. With consoles ready to fly, this ship features two seats in the cockpit and other auxiliary consoles along the rear wall as well. Thranta Class Mk 2 BridgeNext, we visited the Medical bay. This ship is equipped with a full hospital suite including bacta tanks, surgical beds, and more, so that it can dually serve as a Hospital ship if needed.



The Cargo bay was quite spacious and while it already had some cargo in it, it seemed to be far from reaching its capacity. Cargo Bay_001 “The photos may not describe the functionality of the ship. It is made for extremely prolonged periods of time in transit, not needed to dock at port for 2 standard years if fully stocked. It can serve as a relief ship if need be due to its large cargo carrying capacity and to some extent can be used as a medical ship.”, said Rhialto Tereshechenko. 


Crew quarters and Captain’s quarters are also available and feature beds, an Autochef, shower, and toilet. Also featured was Engineering, where the ship’s drives are maintained and utilized, and the Comm / Conference room. When asked if the ship had yet been named, Rhialto indicated that it had not yet been named, but stated “the model is a Thranta MK 2…more advanced version of the older Thranta class, sharing a bit more in common with the older Hammerhead.”

Pjaysiv Panteer, Supreme Chancellor of the Great Galactic Republic said, “The Ships  means safe boarders for the citizens of the Republic. It also gives hope that the Republic is ready to protect our citizens and our allies. As of late there has been news of attacks by  Sith on Taris and Mandalorian space.

The Expansion of GRAE

rex and mary jane_001It was February 25 when GNW wrote about the marriage of the happy couple Arbitras Rexsus II and his wife Mary Jane Rexsus. so It has been over two months and GNW travels to the Forest moon Endor to look into the happy couple to see how things were for them for these past few months.

On our visit, we learned where the couple spent their honeymoon. Mary Jane Rexsus said, “Oh it was beautiful we went first a secluded beach on Naboo, and traveled to Tython and many other peaceful planets ..then we saw the hidden gems of Endor which had just more pretty beaches and lovely mountains”

I was told that they visited the old Gupin Sacred grounds. which she said that her husband Rex had told her all about and how he’s the last of their kind. She said that The Gupin Mountains are sad but beautiful. I have never been to the Gupin Mountains on Endor so I want to know much about them. Rex said, “Gupin is half my race. They are a very powerful Shapeshifting race. There have been tales of them migrating here many many years ago. The Ewoks will tell you how they’ve protected them over the years but were lead to near extinction because of the Empire “he nods “They had homes way up the Forest moon’s Mountains which is why it’s called that”

One of the things I notice when I arrived on the base of GRAE was the completed renovation of the base. The room we spoke in was the Tyler dormitory. It was named in the remembrance of Rex’s son. Rex told us that there was a statue across from where I was in honor of Jessant Cassius. Rex told us that Grae had lost many cadets and recruits. As I notice, they continue to grow and to honor those they lost.

Mary Jane Rexsus smiles warmly and said, “There’s even an office for me AND infirmary above us and a new Council room for us” She also said, “I actually have two recruits I am training now and we’re expanding and making alliances ” she nods with a happy tone ” With a few hiccups and attacks from our Regime enemy and Hutt ties” she frowns at this.

They still have the Regime and their new Hutt ally to deal with but their new allies Mandalorian clan Prudii seem promising as they are the enemies of their enemies.
Rex said, ” “The Prudii Leader has been very generous with us and have seen to our aid quite a few times,” he said softly ” They are a very unique Mandalorian clan”

Mary Jane Rexsus and Arbitras Rexsus II last words were they were looking for anyone willing to join them and their family. they are welcome anyone around the galaxies willing to enlist.

GRAE held a private wedding for their Grandmaster

Endor WeddingThis was the wedding of the century. it was held secretly at the GARE’s chambers and GNW has the exclusive. Anyone who was anyone was there. Jedi orders like KOJ and others were welcome to this festival event.

The couple, Grandmaster Abrbitras Rexus and Mary Jane Welson were the ones tying the knot. What a beautiful dress Lady Welson was wearing as she gracefully walked down the archway. The couple held hands and when they met that spoke declaration of sweet words of love.

“You look beautiful my love.”- Arbitras Rexsus II
“Thank you darling and you look handsome in your wedding armor. ” -Mary Jane Welson

It was Elder Vyres Yodan III who married the couple. he starts The vows by saying “Arbitras I watch you grow from a young apprentice and my grandson through most of my life. ” he smirks “You’ve rightfully led this order wisely and became the Grand Command I once was and probably better. ”
“You Arbitras have gone through much in life ..good and bad ..This I want you to remember as one of the bests.” he then turns his gaze to MJ “Lady Welson I’ve had the privilege of knowing your family when you were young,” he said smirking revealing a big secret. “They did valiant things for the Rebel alliance our golden years.”What your family did MJ for us when we were first starting out was an alway remembered sacrifice. ” he sighed and shakes his head. “BUT they, I sense would be proud of the wonderful woman you became today and what you’ve done for GRAE is honorable. ”
The couple had made their own vows.

“Arbitras ..not only you’ve saved me when I first crashed here you became my love, my mate let me in your family even when I wasn’t married to you. ” she blushes “You’ve taught me much in the force and much as a GRAE master. ” she giggles ” I am honored to change my last name Rexsus. ” she nods “And help lead Endor with you as its Royalty also.” she smiles glowing warmly in the force. ” I will love you forever eternally. “- Mary Jane Welson

“My love Lady Welson, You falling into our Forest moon was the gift from the heavens and the Force,” he said nuzzling her hand. “I cherish every time with you and you’ve helped my sanity and balance in the force since I’ve been training you. “he smirks “You make this old one happy he’s finally found someone good for him,” he said with warmth in his words as he paused. ” Mary…you came into my life when I was ready to lose all hope and you brought me that hope,” he said proudly with a firm nod. ” I welcome you to our family and always have,” he said finishing.

Elder Vyres Yodan III asked for the ring and each one place a ring on one another fingers and said I do. They both embrace and kiss and became King and queen Rexsus. I wonder where they are going on their honeymoon. GNW will keep you updated as we learn more.

The Shade Regime’s New Alliance

Darth Toruk and Slurm Ortho The HuttIt has been a long time since GNW herd from the Shade Regime. The last time they were at war with GRAE. So on request GNW meet up with Lord Krah, Darth Toruk’s apprentice. He escorted me to a palace on LME. Of all places, it was a Hutt Palace. While I was there, I had an interview with Darth Toruk and his Hutt alley Ortho the Hutt.

Darth Toruk told me that his new alliance with Ortho the Hutt had gained him great wealth and power. I was also told this also by his apprentice.

Lord Krah chuckles softly “This Hutt Family you will meet soon enough as he and the Dark Lord have been meeting as we speak ” he nods again ” Thanks to this Hutt we’ve gained a bit of wealth also”

Darth Toruk (Snake Childs) nods “This here is one of the few members of the Hutt Family Ortho, Slurm Ortho the Hutt…Thanks to him I’ve grown powerful here and have great control” he nods to his Hutt friend “he’s young but has great wealth and power also ”
Darth Toruk said, “My numbers have expanded, thanks to my Hutt partner here also my ships are not only imperial like ships but unmarked ones for stealth purposes” he shrugs “The list goes on ..the only obstacle I have is the Mandalorian Clan Prudii across from us who we’ve had constant battles with ” he brushes this off lightly”

Ortho the Hutt told us that he had made Darth Toruk a member of his cartel enterprise. Also allowing Patrols of troopers here and also aiding him product trades.

Darth Toruk Save Ortho the Hutt’s life but that is not the reason why he is working with Darth Toruk. believe me, I asked. Ortho the Hutt told that his family was massacred by the very Elder Who’s returned in GRAE. He thanks Darth Toruk for saving him and his recovery from the brink of death. They have become friends and he said that there there was not a single fellow Hutt reached out to him. He helps out of hospitality and friendship.

With this newfound Hospitality and Friendship, between Darth Toruk and Ortho, the Hutt, Darth Toruk plans to wipe out the returned Prudii clan…In the midst of soon plaining on visiting Ziost to see an old friend order. He has a 5 million credit bounty on Elder of Yodan of GRAE. It seems like he going stir up something with the love interest of the Grand Master of GRAE. Ortho the Hutt plans to make himself known to the Hutt council and many other Hutts.

GNW will keep our viewers update on The Shade Regime and their Hutt ally as it comes.
