THE NEW IMPERIAL SERVICE CORPS-Not Just for Clones Anymore
Part I: The newly opened
Located on beautiful Corellia is one of the most
ambitious projects of the newly formed Galactic Empire to date, the
CC: Last time we spoke to you which was just a short time ago you were a Lt. Commander werenít you?
Cdr Draconia: As a matter of fact I was.
I was just promoted due to my work on this project and my help in
organizing the change over to the new Imperial Galactic Policy.
CC: Then congratulations are in order.
CD: Thank you very much. My family and I
are very proud that I serve the Empire so well. There is room for
everyone to advance in the Empire no matter what their background.
If they work hard and they can easily move ahead. That is what is so
exciting about this new training facility. When the army was first
formed and the fleet, it was all run by clones. Now, anyone can join
and if you go to the Academy on Corellia, you can get your University
Education paid for, you have a degree when you come out and you enter into
the military right as an officer. It is brilliant really. We
need smart citizens of the Empire to step forward and seize the
opportunities that are being handed to them here.
CC: You seem especially proud of this facility.
CD: I must admit I am. I helped design
part of the training facility. When I was asked what I would like to
see in a training facility the Chancellor sat down with me and took notes.
That is the best thing about being involved with the Empire. They
listen, youíre not just a number here. I have been able to visit
my facility and see it materialize.
CC: That must be an exciting moment.
CD: There is not greater feeling to know that
what you have set out to do is now accomplished and can be enjoyed by
CC: Why Corellia?
CD: Corellia is known to have the best pilots
in the Galaxy, it is only natural that our training facility be set up
CC: Any plans for other facilities?
CC: How does one get into the Academy?
CD: There are entrance exams of course.
One can obtain an application at our site or one can write to the ministry
CC: Weíre sure that the Galaxy will be far
safer with such a place.

INTERVIEW with BAIL ORGANA, SENATOR of ALDERAAN
Part I of the extensive interview with Senator Organa
was with Kahtya Millions, and Part II of our In-Depth interview was done
with Rahi Taam. First and foremost we would like to thank the very
busy Senator for meeting with us taking this time out of his schedule.
We know that finding time to meet with the media is difficult.
Senator Organa: Actually my door is always
open. I do what I can to have the most open policy in the Galaxy.
I feel there is no such thing as too much information and there is no such
thing as a taboo subject. Anyone from anywhere can see me whether
they are a resident of Alderaan, Coruscant or anywhere else.
CC: That is very liberal. Many Senators
would say they have very busy lives. Donít you have a very busy
life as well?
SO: Of course I do, we all have busy lives.
However, my life is dedicated to serving the public. I am here
because the public has elected me to be here. My people expect
me to be here and they expect me to answer for my work and views.
That is what being in politics is all about. If I did not believe
that then I would not have gone into politics.
CC: Arenít you the Viceroy of Alderaan?
Which then doesnít that make you a Prince or some other royalty?
SO: In actuality yes. However, just
because one is born into a certain station in life does not excuse one
from doing oneís duty. I am an elected official. I worked
hard to get the job as Senator. I was in the Junior Corps just like
every other Senator here. I studied at University just like every
other Senator here. When it came time to elect a Senator to come to
Coruscant for my first term it was not a clear victory. There was a
bitter battle for my seat here. I was willing to step down but the
King of Alderaan at the time, my father, wished that I remain involved and
that combined with some negotiations won me my seat. Since then I
have never lost an election.
CC: If youíre the Prince wouldnít it just
automatically go to you?
SO: We have several branches of the royal
family on Alderaan. Our branch that is currently ruling on Alderaan
has a long tradition of democratic rule. We have had a democratic
monarchy going back about three hundred years. However, just because
one is a prince does not give one an automatic right to the job of being a
Senator. One does need to be elected and one still has to do work.
CC: You said the King at the time; does that
mean there is a new King now?
SO: A new King has not had a coronation no.
The King passed away some time ago and the future of Alderaan has been
discussed. As we are now part of the Empire the future of the
monarchy is an issue of much debate on Alderaan.
CC: Would that job go to you?
CC: Speaking of the Imperial Republic, what do
you see as Alderaanís role in the new Imperial Republic?
SO: I think the re-organization of the Republic
will be an interesting time for all involved. It will create
opportunities for many and will allow the Chancellor to be able to better
organize things so that all citizens in the Republic can be safe and
secure. I know for my own family I am hoping for a more safe and
CC: Your family Senator? We were under
the impression that your wife passed away recently.
SO: She did pass away but before she passed my
wife and I were blessed with a daughter. My wifeís sister, Breha
DeFelice, has been especially wonderful throughout my wifeís battle with
Niphylremia and she has helped so much with the baby now. My sister
Rana, and my sisters-in-law Celeste and Theresa Organa have also helped me
more than I can possibly thank them. I donít know what I would do
without them really. My family means so much to me. My
daughter and I rely on them very much right now.
CC: Arenít the chances of conception during
Niphylremia almost impossible?
SO: My daughter was born as a preemie.
She did struggle but her will to live must be very strong. Here she
is amazingly, wonderfully healthy and happy despite all the odds against
her. My wife would have wanted no less for her. She is a
miracle. She definitely has at least one angel looking after her if
not a whole multitude of them. Children show you how amazing the
Universe is and how blessed we really are. Something so delicate and
fragile can fight so hard and have so many people believing in it.
She is like the symbol of our Democracy really. She is a Survivor.
CC: You do seem to be truly blessed. We
wish you and your daughter the best of luck.

EYES ON THE STARS
~By Lady Asta~
have really been busy on Coruscant recently, and I have been trying hard
to keep track of all the activities! First off, there was the
official parade celebrating the end of the war. The Imperial
Chancellor was generous enough to close official government offices for
the day to allow everyone to attend. And what a spectacle it was.
Troops from all over the galaxy were welcomed as heroes. There were
speeches by many prominent government officials, and performances by
members of the new Imperial Artists League.
few days later, the latest play by newly named official Imperial
Playwright Herno Bogual opened to enthusiastic reviews. Senators
Taa, Froshuk, and Yafru accompanied the Imperial Chancellor to his box and
were seen applauding enthusiastically at the end of the heartwarming
drama. Bogualís next play will be about the war, according to his
agent. With so many stories to tell from this war, it will be
interesting to see how it turns out.
next night, I dashed over to the latest gallery installment by multi-genre
artist Fyn Randers. In addition to the paintings and photographs on
display, the centerpiece of the exhibit was a large free form sculpture
that must be seen to be believed. The exhibit included smaller
pieces, such as metal work, pottery, vases, and original jewelry designs
available for sale in the gift shop. Naturally, the gala event was
quite full of stars Ė including
had a chance to chat with the charming and gorgeous artist, and he said he
was very excited about the installation, and the opportunity to show so
many of his different pieces together. ďIt shows that Iím more
than just a pretty face.Ē He said, with a twinkle in his eye.
For someone who started his career as an actor before moving on to
exploring so many different art forms Ė and doing it so well - I would
have to agree!
WHAT DOES THE FORCE HAVE IN MIND FOR YOU?
- If your birth Year ends in a 0 or 1 you are strong like steel and just
as flexible. Fall is the time to sit back and count your earnings.
Donít spend too foolishly you might need those coins and credits you
have from those adventures this Summer. If you havenít been saving
now is the time to save. Donít spend. You need all the gold
and silver you can scrape together in the upcoming cold winter months that
you will be seeing. Perhaps you will need to invest in home
improvements or gifts at
- If your birth Year ends in a 2 or 3 you are able to flow and change like
the rivers and lakes. You can feel to the depths of the oceans and
see all the colors of the rainbow. Summer seemed to take you on a
wild ride and all you seemed to want was peace and quiet. The good
news is that is all over with and your dance card is about to be filled
with fun and fancy as your nightlife livens up. Parties, receptions,
dinner parties and more abound as the festival season seems to come early
for you. Take people up on invitations to as you never know when you
just might meet that special someone at the next get together.
- If your birth Year ends in a 4 or 5 you are like the trees. You
know how to see and listen without causing too many rustling leaves.
Summer was a wild time for you as well as you branched out to all sorts of
people and planted lots of seeds. Now is the time let those seeds
rest and see what grows. You need to wait for your harvest as you
seem stuck and even though you might want to move forward your branches
are all tangled up in each otherís autumnal winds. Avoid going to
too many festivals and high end occasions as you are just too burnt out.
Save your energies for the
- If your birth Year ends in a 6 or 7 you burn with Passion for
everything. Autumn is when we look to candles and candlelight to
lead our way. Snuggling up at home with a warm fire and
someone special is a nice idea. You will have plenty of
opportunities to have a good time but remember to also keep in mind to
make time for yourself. Summer was one great party after another and
Fall just keeps those fires burning bright, but one on one time cozy
together is a warm place to be too.
