Who Really Suffers When Eyes Are Forced Closed?

RNN - Grohl Sector, Calast System -- In a statement earlier today, Dr. Jesse Greenwood, leading researcher with the Purrgil Migratory Research Group (P.M.R.G.) of the Galactic Wildlife Fund (GWF), confirmed that marauding pirates have temporarily stunted the organization's tracking program in the Kowak system. GWF, in partnership with multiple governments and allies of the Rebel Alliance, had retrofitted deployed SySat T-24s in the Kowak system after its recent discovery. These satellites have helped the research group’s effort to track and protect intergalactic travelers and migrating Purrgils who are often unaware of developing and changing hyperspace lanes. Despite this setback, P.M.R.G. is confident that they will be able to deploy new satellites with the help of their partners in The Resistance.


Purrgil Migratory Research Group (P.M.R.G.) is a division of the Galactic Wildlife Fund (GWF) whose sole mission is to observe and track the migratory routes of the deep space faring Purrgils. The colossal creatures are known to frequent gas giants in search of the gas Clouzon-36 which their body metabolizes into a biometric fuel in order to facilitate a form of travel that is similar to conventional hyperspace travel. The satellites that were recently attacked and destroyed were some of the first units retrofitted to follow these giants around the high traffic areas of the Kowak system and neighboring sectors. Purrgils are widely regarded as an at-risk species, owing to their inability to register on many ships navigational sensors at longer ranges. As a result, dozens of collisions occur every year between Purrgils and civilian space traffic, resulting in the death of these gentle creatures and millions of credits worth of damage. Though P.M.R.G.’s abilities are now offline, Dr. Greenwood is confident that, with the data they were able to collect up until this recent act of vandalism, they will still be able to keep both the Purrgils and interstellar hyperlanes safe for the time being.


The SySat T-24’s that were destroyed were originally part of the alliance’s efforts spearheaded by Blue Star Dominion to secure the Kowak System in the later part of Year 22. Originally used to monitor inter-system starship movements, they were retrofitted with recently developed and sophisticated filters that were specifically tuned to the Purrgil biometric and anatomic profile readings given off when they would traverse the simu-tunnels that they naturally create. Dr. Greenwood highlighted one such pod’s movement from their first detection at the gas giant Casna Aure in the Kamino system to Woldona VII in the Woldona system, and all the way through to the outer edges of known space on the planet of Illarreen Prime in the Illarreen system.

With the recent hacked postering of these pirates, no clear motive is known at this time for their attacks on civilian satellites. Dr. Greenwood was pleased to announce that The Resistance has reaffirmed its commitment to the safety of the area with the donation of additional SySat T-24’s specifically commissioned and produced by Holowan Conglomerate with advancements from leading scientists at Kamino Medical Laboratories. With these new satellites, the P.M.R.G. will be able to continue their work with minimal long-term repercussions.


At the conclusion of his press conference, Dr. Greenwood took the opportunity to remind the galaxy of the GWF Purrgil adoption program. “By adopting a Purrgil with GWF, you will be able to help protect these mysterious creatures from needless death across our hyperlanes. Adoption cost from just 100 credits a month or 1,000 credits a year and you will be supporting our vital work to protect Purrgils. We will send you an exciting adoption pack showing how essential your help is. There is even a toy plush purrgil. If you know someone who cares about Purrgils, adoption makes a great gift. So please make a difference, adopt a Purrgil today by sending your donation to our partners in The Resistance and ensure that we can continue to work to ensure the safety of our Purrgils and our hyperlanes.”
