OPERATIONAL DEBRIEFING FOLLOWS….
The Fourth Light Division assisted the N’tani in deploying highly advanced sensor buoys in the Euphini Expanse.
As the sensor network came online, significant remaining USF forces were detected in local sectors. The fleet was dispatched to deal with this threat to the N’Tani, and to the new sensor buoys. During the encounters, TSN Sabre and TSN Viper were able to persuade 3 USF crews to surrender, as well as picking up 3 occupied life pods. Marines were dispatched by shuttle to capture the crews, after which their ships were scuttled. Several USF ships attempted to escape the sector, presumably to warn the rest of their fleets, but they failed in this attempt. Small pickets of Hegemony units were also encountered during the engagement, but proved no greater threat than the USF. While the N’tani combat detachment suffered heavy losses the cargo pods were protected sufficiently.
A secondary patrol sweep through the area was conducted while further sensor calibrations were underway, and while the sensor nodes were submerged under TSN stealth systems. More hostile units were encountered and dispatched with no significant impact to 4LTDIV forces.
…OPERATIONAL DEBRIEFING ENDS
CURRENT FLEET INTELLIGENCE:
The N’tani sensor buoys produced large amounts of broad-spectrum EM signals beyond that used by normal sensor systems. In addition it is noted that intense gravity wells formed and the so-called “Space Monsters” seemed to dart out of the gravwells and chase down enemy craft. How any of these more exotic interdiction systems work is a complete mystery to us and our allies have not been especially forthcoming with their secrets. The good news however is that as the N’tani set up more of these sensors they will be able to project this interdiction capability through more of the Expanse, which should provide sufficient deterrent to further USF and PWC raid parties.
Section Blue confirms a target of interest in Erebus Sector VIII. Further analysis of the downloaded data cores is in progress. Intelligence will be declassified and issued to personnel once all communications have been decoded and a battle plan formed.
Deep Strike Deployments into Erebus are extremely likely to retrieve highly sensitive equipment. Plan accordingly and take all necessary precautions should any exotic artifacts be included in this list.
Support for Allies such as the N’tani, Zolmari and Hjorden remain a high priority to support the significant goodwill they have displayed, and to encourage other, would-be allies.
When Allied Forces are placed under the direction of the Division it is key to ensure they remain within a coherent unit at all times to maximize their effectiveness. If an allied battlegroup leader falls and the allies begin to scatter, the currently active Senior Communications Officer should be quick on the ball with ensuring an effective regrouping of allied forces.
Officers should be aware that some Kralien ships have been seen to declare as Zolmari at unexpected times, including when surrounded by non-Zolmari. All reasonable efforts should be made to ensure that they are able to escape safely, once they have made themselves known.
Keep the Section Blue frigate assigned as close support at least until the problems with her power generation are resolved. Suggest refocusing her long-range emitters to enable at least measurable damage to a capital ship even at the cost of lateral coverage.
