Imperial Intelligence Black Operatives

Within the Galactic Empire most forces are considered conventional and
generally operate within the set juristictions of the Imperial High
Command. A few secretive units within Imperial Intelligence, however,
work in the shawdows of the Empire and are directly attached to Emperor
Palpatine's security advisor. These units are disclosed to only the
highest-ranking intelligence officers.

Emperor Palpatine's security advisor is usually a high-positioned
Imperial Intelligence officer that has the authority to use whatever
force is neccessary to maintain stability within the Empire. This
includes both external and internal threats. When a situation is deemed
a direct threat to the Galactic Empire, and other methods of resolving
it are either too risky or too broad, the security advisor can
personally requistion a special actions unit.

Recruitment for these operations is highly specialized, and prospects
are hand-selected by the commander of the task force. Command of the
unit is selected by Ubiqtorate, which keeps constant files on officers
with stellar combat records. Most of the men selected are recent
graduates of elite units within the Empire, including the Imperial
Army's Deipvek Sniper Training Facility and the Stormtrooper Corps'
training regime. Men are selected for their loyalty and combat abilities,
including knowledge of discretionary warfare and unconventional
techniques.

The covert task force consists of approximately ten men, who all are
elite-calibre soldiers. After their selection they are sent to a
secretive training facility where they are briefed and trained
extensively on their current mission and its requirements. Once the
training is complete, soldiers are shipped out and deployed to their
planetary drop-zones by special dropships designed for covert action.
Once the insertion team is on their planet of operations, they are
basically on their own.

Some operations are more easily defined than others, such as the
assassination of a Rebel leader or the rescue of a group of officers.
More often, however, the task force's orders are very basic, allowing
the unit to take their own course of action in accomplishing their
objectives. They are silent warriors, and operate without support
from outside units. Once all the objectives have been completed the
team is extracted, often times without the enemy knowing anybody was
ever there.

All of the unit's actions are completely secret, with only the security
advisor, Ubiqtorate, and the task force knowing of the team's exsistence.
If, during the course of the operation, the unit's secrecy is compromised,
all communications to the unit are cut and the unit is susequently
abandoned. While the Imperial High Command condones covert activites,
their effect is extreme in most cases. Every day, somewhere in the vast
galaxy, an Imperial Intelligence black operation is underway.
