Star Wars Admiral Thrawn: Feared by Smugglers
The Emperor Commands Thrawn to Hunt for Pirates and Smugglers in the Mid-Rim Region
Reilable sources indicate that the Imperial Navy has moved extensive forces into the Mid-Rim region to search and capture smugglers, pirates and other violaters of Imperial space. Specifically, a systems force has been sighted along the Bothan Run and Gamor Run space lanes.
Due to the prosperity of the sprawling manufacturing and agricultural entrepreneuers in the Mid-Rim region, piracy is again at a high. Ample opportunity abounds as well for the seasoned smuggler who can contract with the locals to source supplies to other sectors of the galaxy. Accordingly, the Empire has sent it’s systems forces to crack down on the “interference” of its interests in these territories.
WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THRAWN??
Past Anti-Smuggling Mission of Admiral Thrawn
Admiral Thrawn is a Chiss male from the planet Csilla located in the outer regions of the unknown territories. The Chiss are a blue-skinned humanoid race with distinguishing red eyes and darlk blue hair. Admiral Thrawn commands the Seventh Fleet of the Imperial Navy. A grandmaster of strategy, Thrawn studies the philosophy and art of his adversaries which makes him a sophisticated and engaging individual. Smugglers are highly cautioined when dealing with imperial officials operating under Thrawn’s command!!!
Thrawn poses a serious threat to any smuggling activites. For example, one of his early missions it is told is that he was assigned to the Thunder Wasp hunting smugglers and prirates in the Mid-Rim regions. Thrawn, along with Vanto, investigated and arrested a group of smugglers who had been smuggling iridium in the shells of Paklarn grist mollusks. Thrawn cleverly deduced further that this was an operation orchestrated by Nightswan who was using the smugglied iridium as payments for vulture droids. Upon interrogation, Thrawn learned of Umbara when the smugglers where being instructed by Nightshade. Vanto dismissed this as a false lead, but Thrawn’s sophisticated insticnts and intuition drove him to believe that an investigation into a possible insurgency was pending. To his credit, Thrawn was correct and the Thunder Wasp was dispatched to help put a stop to it with Admiral Carlou Gendling’s task force.

Thrawn: Alliances (Star Wars)
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Grand Admiral Thrawn and Darth Vader team up against a threat to the Empire in this thrilling novel from bestselling author Timothy Zahn.
“I have sensed a disturbance in the Force.”
Ominous words under any circumstances, but all the more so when uttered by Emperor Palpatine. On Batuu, at the edges of the Unknown Regions, a threat to the Empire is taking root—its existence little more than a glimmer, its consequences as yet unknowable. But it is troubling enough to the Imperial leader to warrant investigation by his most powerful agents: ruthless enforcer Lord Darth Vader and brilliant strategist Grand Admiral Thrawn. Fierce rivals for the emperor’s favor, and outspoken adversaries on Imperial affairs—including the Death Star project—the formidable pair seem unlikely partners for such a crucial mission. But the Emperor knows it’s not the first time Vader and Thrawn have joined forces. And there’s more behind his royal command than either man suspects.
In what seems like a lifetime ago, General Anakin Skywalker of the Galactic Republic, and Commander Mitth’raw’nuruodo, officer of the Chiss Ascendancy, crossed paths for the first time. One on a desperate personal quest, the other with motives unknown . . . and undisclosed. But facing a gauntlet of dangers on a far-flung world, they forged an uneasy alliance—neither remotely aware of what their futures held in store.
Now, thrust together once more, they find themselves bound again for the planet where they once fought side by side. There they will be doubly challenged—by a test of their allegiance to the Empire . . . and an enemy that threatens even their combined might.
