Campaign of the Month: January 2012
Star Trek Late Night
The Secret War was a major turf war fought between 2383 and 2386 between the Orion Syndicate and Black Sun. The Black Sun followed the Empire through the wormhole from Galaxy 13491 looking to capitalize on newly opened areas. When the Syndicate realized that a new criminal organization was trying to move into their galaxy and take control of areas they had slotted for expanse, they declared war on these upstarts. It is known as the Secret War because it was masked in a great part by The Empire War. Most people don’t even know it happened.
The Syndicate had the home turf advantage along with numbers. The Black Sun gained support from the empire in an effort to help destabilize the region. The casualties were intense on both sides as were the rewards.
At the close of the Empire War, the Black Sun entered peace talks with the Syndicate. They no longer had the support of the empire and no access to reinforcements from back home. Fortunately for them, Xizor was trapped on the Milky Way side and was able to maintain control. Had he been in Galaxy 13491 when the wormhole was severed, the Black Sun might have fractured and been absorbed by other gangs.
