The Imperial logo appeared on the screens of several watchers across the galaxy, and then the holoscanners focused on a black durasteel wall, punctuated with weld-lines and thick rivets. A man moved before the camera, wearing an orange jumpsuit with the number "8472-4219" across the right chest. His voice was not recognizable to many...

"Good evening, one and all. My name is Carnor Jax, Grand Marshal of Imperial Air Forces." He paused a moment, his eyes closing as his back straightened, seeming to collect his thoughts. "I come before you tonight not in my capacity in the military, but as a man with something that he feels needs to be said.

"Approximately seven hours ago, at a brunch held in the spirit of the Galactic Ball, I took the life of a Jedi Knight that I perceived was a threat to the dignitaries visiting the Galactic Empire's capital world of Coruscant. I witnessed the slaying of two of my comrades, two of the Empire's stormtroopers, by a lightsaber that returned to the hand of a Jedi Knight named Jasmine.

"I offered her a secure escort to an Imperial facility pending an investigation, and her response was to attack me. I felt I did only as much as was necessary to subdue her, and again offered her the opportunity to come with me to safety. Her response, again, was to attack me without further words, and I was forced, in full view of everyone that was present at that brunch, to execute Jasmine.

"I am speaking to you tonight because I want to extend my most sincere sympathies not only to the people forced to witness such a horrendous act, but to the members of her Order that are left without her. I promise you, before the Gods and upon my soul that if I had any way to spare her life I would have."

Jax bowed his head, his voice soft. "I have willingly allowed myself to be detained by Imperial security pending an official investigation. I will also, personally, make a full record of my statement available to anyone that requests it. To members of the Galaxy, I wish you godspeed, and farewell."

The Grand Marshal rises and exits the frame of the holo, and the focus remains on the prison wall a moment longer before the Imperial logo once again fills the frame of view.

"My job is not to cast judgement on you - that is what your Gods are for. My job? To arrange the meeting."
