Big Trouble in Lanth Subsector
You have been on the planet Lanth, capitol world for the Lanth sector for a little while now (trading, travelling, good paying ‘job’) and have become aware of the latest news brought here by the xboat system, that there are tensions on the border between the Zhodani and the Imperium. Other news sources (far traders, other travelers) are saying something a little different, that the tensions have gone ‘hot’ and there have been clashes across the border and it looks like it might turn into a war. Worrying news, but you are a few sub sectors from the border so it is unlikely to be of concern to you for some time yet.
     Your day started like most other days, then it all went ‘south’. First the planets data net started acting up, then crashed a few times, then went down completely. Others noted that there was something going on up in orbit:  flashes and brief views of what looked like beam weapon fire.
     The data net then came back up, briefly, with a simple and stark message from the planetary government:

     “To all citizens and visitors on Lanth, we have come under surprise attack by an unidentified enemy. Further news will be broadcast when possible. All citizens should seek shelter, the military has been deployed for the defence of our world.”

     You are now in the middle of a war zone! The following days are going to be interesting!

     And so it began. After managing to get off Lanth, the crew is now heading away from the war zone and aiming to become traders and troubleshooters.
