Criminal and revenge Organisation: S.P.A.G.E.T.T.I. (Special Project for the Accumulation of Gems and the Erasure of The Tetsus Instigator) This organisation is inspired by the James Bond organisation, S.P.E.C.T.R.E. (Special Executive for Counter Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion). It was also inspired by reading on Wookieepedia, that the Grand Protector of Rodia ordered genocide against an entire clan, the Tetsus clan, both on and offworld. Thus in a lot of my fiction and roleplaying, SPAGETTI has been major protagonists or minor bit players with their end goal unclear to anyone in-universe, but really everything that their agents and operatives do across the galaxy, is to channel finance back to SPAGETTI, to fund an eventual attack on Rodia's capital, to assassinate Narvik the Red. I have used them for so long, that I have forgotten most of what they do. Spaceport Slavery Their most recent small scale operation (RP game, Intervention: Echoes of Eternity) is a slaving operation working out of spaceports in the Craci system. The star system lies on the border of the Empire and the Corporate Sector. Contacts in the town's bars would identify pretty or skilled femmes, and communicate their details to agents at the spaceport, and if instructed to do so, would deliver messages to said female, inviting them to a party that night on a Seltiss-2 Hutt caravel at the spaceport. The outside would feature parked limousines, a droid valet(?) checking invitations, and the sound and lights of a "happening" party going on aboard the caravel, but once aboard, the holos creating the atmosphere would deactivate, allowing the visitor to find themselves in a locked spartan room. The caravel would spring fifty metres into the air, more to prevent people jumping off, and then go meet a Bulwark-class cruiser in orbit, which would stock the captives until full, while the automated caravel returned to the surface. The caravel is armed with at least an Ax-108 "Ground Buzzer" blaster cannon to dissuade pursuing starfighters. A cell of four Rodians, operating in the same spaceport, took on jobs, eg. bounties, that would again channel funding back to SPAGETTI. Eventual Endgame Although I have never actually written SPAGETTI achieving their goal, in 16BBY, an Imperial Acclamator despatched to the edge of the galaxy, or the Unknown Regions to investigate something, I forget what, encountered the equivalent of this Mega Maid (see below) being constructed in deep space. They were unable to report back, as they were immediately surrounded and captured by a force of Bulwark-class cruisers. Personnel and Assets SPAGETTI is staffed mostly by Rodians of the Tetsus clan, although a few non-Rodians are employed, either for the money, because they were captured and were given the choice to join or die, or some other reason personal to them. The Rodians, being the victims of Narvik the Red's genocide order, are highly motivated, and and proud to be sending money back to fill the coffers, no matter how that moolah is earned, and who (non-Tetsus anyway) suffers. Around the galaxy, they operate in four person cells for security, and make contacts with the authorities or civilian population to help achieve their goals. For instance, at Craci, they had gained enough trust with the planetary governor, and garrison commander, that neither blinked at their caravels' frequent surface to orbital trips, though that is not to say that the authorities had a clue as to what was occuring. Bulwark-class cruisers SPAGETTI has several of these kilometre-long vessels, and sufficient personnel to crew them. In my fanon, their bows are able to split open like the supertanker in the Spy Who Loved Me, and capture smaller vessels. The one operating at Craci, the Dep S, was able to hold three caravels in its hold. It was crewed by Rodians, the human captain, Lanie McFarland, and droideka battledroids. In 0.5ABY, McFarland over-rode the orders of his Rodian masters to give aid to CSA VicStars that were under missile attack and broadcasting distress calls. Later the same day, the bridge crew were killed by Mercs that they had been trapped on their latest caravel, and the ship programmed to jump into the local sun. Unknown to the Mercs, there were other captives aboard. This is an article that I can see myself having to add detail to, but this should be enough to get ya started.
