The Unchained Stars
209th Sector Task Force
The small flotilla that is the Imperial Navy presence in the sector is comprised of the flagship INS Knightfall, a Venator-class Star Destroyer and command ship. It is the flagship of Rear Admiral Kal Mattish and home of the 407th Navy Commando Brigade known as the “Monkwolves”. The unit became infamous for hunting down and killing a small enclave of Jedi padawans who were hiding out in the Outer Rim.
The Sector Task Force is headed by the Knightfall; which also contains its garrison of Imperial Navy Troopers, Imperial Navy Commandos, an attachment of Imperial Army TIE Stryker squadrons and a small Imperial Army logistics company, a number of TIE squadrons and parts of the 392nd Stormtrooper Regiment, which was mostly forward deployed. One Vindicator-class heavy frigate, two Vigil-class corvettes, two Carrack-class light cruisers, several Arquitens-class light cruisers and a number of fleet support and logistics vessels completed the task force. The flotilla is homeported at the Imperial Navy Orbital Station Yokishua, a former Old Republic medical depot orbiting one of the moons of Ord Cestus. It functions as a supply depot, patrol base and repair harbor for long-range patrols in this territory of the Imperial Outer Rim.
The 209th Sector Task Force spends most of it’s time deployed across the sector and rarely gathers together in full strength. Recent events have caused the INS Knightfall to return to Ord Cestus to provide support for the local government.
