Daraa was one of the Comissariat’s main military-industrial complexes. If you had a rifle, it probably was produced there. And that wasn’t its only quality. This planet was a fortress. Most infrastructure was built in vast underground cave systems, surface was barely hospitable and there was an FTL inhibitor located underground. The space elevator was more of a battlestation than an industrial facility. If somobody wanted to invade this part of the nation, they would have to get this world first.
Its strategical importance was unparaller. Which is why the reaction was so fast.
When this “portal” appeared in the server room, containing all of Daraa’s production data, the entire lift was placed under lockdown. Around a hundred Black Guards and a thousand battle droids were sent to secure the area, along with X, an AI investigator from the Diplomatic Corps. The situation was incredibely tense.
“I want a status report! Now!”
“All the data from these servers was wiped clean. Nothing has escaped the portal as of now, sir.” Said one of the Black Guards, in a bleak, calm and cold voice.
“Send an unmanned probe in there. We need to know more about it. In the mean time, set up a perimiter around the portal and have the Territorial Defence Fleet blockade this planet. Nothing gets in or out without my permission.”
