Resistance Commander OXP
Breaking news from Galaxy 5: a major power in the sector, the Biesmaan Dictatorship, has launched a surprise invasion against its neighbour, the independent system of Zabe. With its significant technological and numerical advantage, the Dictatorship has quickly overwhelmed Zabe’s small defence force and in a matter of days the system has been forced to surrender.
Despite sustaining heavy losses, many of Zabe’s senior military figures have been able to escape from the conflict and have since found refuge among sympathetic governments. With GalCop refusing all appeals to intervene, there are now rumours that these exiles have set up a resistance organisation and plan to wage a guerilla war against Biesmaan in a bid to retake their homeland.
The Resistance’s primary enemy, the Biesmaan Dictatorship, ranks amongst the most technically advanced systems in the Proximus Sector. While others in the Galactic Cooperation often question Biesmaan’s methods and ambitions, any concerns are easily allayed by the dictatorship’s unrivalled productivity, which many Cooperation members are reliant upon for their commercial success.
Typically for an industrial dictatorship, Biesmaan operates the ‘Imperium’ family of ships that includes the formidable ‘Censor’, ‘Quaestor’ and ‘Lictor’ patrol craft. Given its undoubted technical prowess, however, it is likely that Biesmaan’s shipyards are busy developing even more advanced models. Further information on the Biesmaan’s politics and economy can be gleaned from the System Profiles prepared by the GalCop Interstellar Intelligence Service (see the Dictators OXP).
