The Umbra Encrypter (Trooper)

Since the beginning of the Great War, one Imperial cipher has defied every attempt at decryption. Code-named "Umbra," it has become a legend in the galactic cryptography community; the Republic even allowed scraps of Umbra transmissions to be released surreptitiously as "unbeatable puzzles" to university students in the hope of finding someone--anyone--who could crack the code.

With theoretical efforts yielding no results, the Republic eventually took on a more direct approach, launching dozens of covert missions to capture one of the Empire's Umbra encryption devices. None has succeeded.
