The Battle of Churnis, also known as Operation Minsk, was a minor battle sparked by discord in the Mercenary Guild, set to the background of the ongoing Galactic Civil War. Several governments and organisations vied for control over the Churnis sector, most notably the Galactic Empire and Zann Consortium. Although the conflict for control of the Mercenary Guild began much earlier, it reached a boiling point in late Year 14 when the ousted leader of the Guild, the rogue Sith Lord Myn Kuat, approached the criminal Ximaro Jix to enlist the Zann Consortium's aid in his plans for revenge.

- "Dream big. Is your current role what you want to do or do you have other ambitions? Figure out what it is, then know what drives you to succeed. You only limit yourself by your own thoughts and actions. Everyone you meet is a potential network opportunity. Take advantage of that and tell them who you are and what your skills are. You never know where that can lead since so many different skill sets are necessary for the roles we fill. Every one of you officers have the potential to be leaders and I want to see all of you have a successful career and advance. My own appointment to the Navy after a long Army career was a complete leap of faith and now I will leap again. Sometimes you have to take chances to make others aware of your potential and to achieve your goals."
