The fall of the New Republic sows unrest and uncertainty across the Galaxy and opens the door for Apocalyptic and Dooms-Day Cults to re-establish themselves in a Galaxy wrought with fear and strife
Several years ago, The Alliance of Mercenary Consortium's ISS Agents uncovered that a Techno-Doomsday Cult called "Red Dusk Collective" had acquired and begun to synthesize a hybrid of the Derra and Serroco Viruses in S19 Astromech Viral Incubator Droids on the planet Serroco in the Ploo Sector. As is well known, The Great Animosity Plague, was initiated by the outbreak of the Derra Virus. That virus was discovered on Year 14 Day 1 as sentients infected were seen to grow irrationally prone to hostility and violence. The outbreak tore through the planet Derra where it was long felt to be contained until a similar outbreak occurred years later on Serroco with the same devastating results to its populace. These worlds are now barren wastelands of lawlessness, chaos and death where no Government or Faction can ever hope to gain a foothold or re-establish order. Now only small outposts of civilization remain on those war torn planets.
The Red Dusk Collective, feeding on an ill-fated notion that through the death and destruction of the known governments and civilizations the Galaxy will reset itself. They claimed that as the sun set on the old Galaxy a new dawn would arise, however, they failed to mention in their preachings that this would be a new and terrible Galaxy of death. To fulfill their prophecy, in what was then a chilling revelation, the ISS learned that the Red Dusk Collective planned to transport and seed this new hybrid mutation onto the closest neighboring planets, Leafar and Leafar II, to test its affects before they attempted to spread their scourge across the Galaxy. As is still true today, the planet Leafar is the financial epicenter of the Alliance of Mercenary Consortiums and serves as a free and booming financial and administrative hub to many of AMC's allies. Safeguarding that planet was then and still is paramount to the welfare and stability of the Alliance. Then, as now, AMC will stop at nothing to secure that end. Years ago when this plot was discovered, AMC Forces acted quickly and it was thought, destroyed the power base of The Collective as well as destroyed all remnants of their terrible viral hybrid.
The recent events which brought the New Republic to its knees, however, has spread doubt and fear throughout the Galaxy and the ISS has learned that The Red Dusk Collective has once again reared its ugly head as desperate and disenfranchised sentients flock to radical groups who promise to bring order to an increasing disordered and seemingly crumbling Galaxy. Reports have now been confirmed that the now re-established and swelling ranks of The Collective have begun to re-synthesis their long thought to be eradicated "Hybrid Virus." The ISS has learned that Serroco is once again their staging area and base of operations and that this time modified D3-S5 Astromechs are being utilized as Viral Incubator Droids.

The ISS has also unearthed that there may be an antidote that the group has synthesized, as well, since Governments will pay an Emperor's Ransom should their planets become infected with this new strain of "Hybrid Virus." If that antidote exists, who ever controls it may hold incredible sway in the Galaxy. Given that fact, and given that once again Leafar may be in jeopardy, AMC will conduct a full scale strike on Serroco's Main City and on the planet itself.

The objective...eliminate any Cult members encountered, obtain any samples of the antidote that may exist and then capture or destroy the modified D3-S5 Astromechs which are serving as the production centers of the new "Hybrid Virus."
An advance team of ISS Shadow Troopers has already established a base of operations within the Spaceport and they have quickly begun operations to control all traffic in and out of the city. The main strike force of AMC Mobile Infantry Legionnaire Units will then move in and provide additional firepower and secure the landing pads and road ways to ensure a strict blockade of the City. A blockade of the planet as a whole has already begun as an AMC Fleet has begun to mass in Serroco's orbit.

[AMC] Victory I-Class Star Destroyer Flagship "Kashyyyk's Messiah" is scheduled to come out of hyperspace in a few days and take up a position along side her sister ship in AMC's growing fleet in Serroco's orbit.
MISSION DIRECTIVE: All AMC Members, ready your Legionnaires! Collect your troops and gear and proceed to the planet Serroco in the Ploo Sector. Join the Blockade Fleet taking shape in orbit their and REPORT IN to Proconsul Max Ameeno Baca once you arrive. Deployment orders will follow and we will take the City by force!
