This article is about the research group. You may be looking for the pathogen.

Alpha Red was a clandestine experimental research group within the New Republic Intelligence Service. A task force within Alpha Blue, Alpha Red reported directly to Admiral Dif Scaur, the Director of New Republic Intelligence, and was tasked with researching the extragalactic biology of the Yuuzhan Vong, determining weaknesses in their systems and developing methods to exploit those weaknesses. The team was led by Alpha Blue scientist Joi Eicroth and its staff included a group of Chiss biotechnicians that worked alongside Intelligence scientists.

The crowning achievement of Alpha Red's research was a biological weapon codenamed "Alpha Red". The airborne pathogen proved in their laboratory tests to target local a unique genetic strand amongst all Vong-related creatures, and destroy it. Alpha Red was also tested on sedated Yuuzhan Vong warriors; the tests were successful in killing the warriors.

Research was then moved out of the Chiss research facility and into a converted hosptial EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate located in orbit of Mon Calamari in order to produce tons of Alpha Red to distribute and unleash upon Yuuzhan Vong held worlds.

Upon hearing of the existence of the deadly Alpha Red pathogen by eavesdropping on a conversation between Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker, Vergere infiltrated the facility and sabotaged the project.

After the use of the pathogen was restricted to a last resort option and Vergere's sabotage, Alpha Red was presumably shutdown. But it was rediscovered by a strike team of Jedi sent to destroy a yammosk on Caluula. All Yuuzhan Vong and their living technology were on the verge of death and were very weak. A member of the strike team revealed that Alpha Red had been deployed on Caluula.

Upon discovering the reemergence of Alpha Red, Luke ordered all Yuuzhan Vong vessels in the system be destroyed to keep the bio-weapon at bay. Supreme Overlord Shimrra sent an infected vessel to capture Zonoma Sekot in order to destroy the planet.

Affiliation

Alpha Red was built in the Clone Wars as a communications center, military base, and scanning station for Coruscant. All records of it were erased when Nephill Kilner went rogue. The base was then used as a fallback position for the Republic Remnant, along as the central communications center. Other asteroids nearby were laden with sensory equipment, hypertrancievers, and smaller scouting bases.

Construction and features

Built by Eledino Engineering Company, Alpha Red featured dozens of turbolaser and point defense batteries, planetary shield, docking bay big enough for at least one Venator-class Star Destroyer, medical bay, and numerous blast doors. One fault in the construction resulted in a large colony of space slugs attracted to poorly located power generators. Alpha Red could hold up to 500,000 people, including on colonized asteroids nearby.
