In a press conference on Earth, Chairman Kaoru Chiba, announced the opening
of the AS Internship and scholarship project, explaining that Aizu-Shoto is
seeking talented engineers to fill their ranks in designing the future.  He
deflected many questions about his father who had retired from the chairman
position after many years as the corporations CEO and founder, but insisted
that he is doing well, but that private family matters has drawn him away. 
That being said, he noted that all interns would be given a starting fund to
begin, but that it was only while finances were available.  He also said that
he would be stimulating those who are interested in entering into the general
labor sector specifically Geologic resource aquisition and would assist in
providing payment to dedicated miners for their work.

_________________________________________________________________________
Widespread backlash, both on Earth and spread across the human colonies, has
begun against President Ronald Hagen, a well-established 'Terra First'
politician, for signing a bill that would increase the taxation on imports
from other worlds to unmanageably high rates.  The move has been framed as an
attempt to isolate and economically cripple non-Earthling settlements, and
has been the cause of protests and unrest across all of human civilization. 
The "Impeach Hagen" movement is reaching a fever pitch.  

Talk show host Tom Mitchel has featured a little-known political theorist on
his popular CNP frequency, channel 999.999, and discussed the situation.

(OOC: To listen to the talk show, tune your communicator to 999.999, tune it

At the edge of the solar system, radars across the central communication hubs
of the Terran Initiative have discovered a curiosity.  Old, decrepit ruins of
several, large carrier-like ships have been discovered aimlessly floating
through the void of space.  Speculations have already begun springing up like
wildfire among all of the human colonies, as well as drawing the attentions
of several notable Terrans.  Many have begun spinning conspiracy theories
that these ruins may well be of human origin, and others go as far as to
suggest that it may be the destroyed fleet of the Final Frontier.

As time passes, several radar scans have been made to look for an entrance or
docking port to one of the largest structures that drift some distance away
from Sol.  Other preperations have been made by those seeking adventure as
well: Weaponry.  The interior of these ruined structures are not still, as a
heartbeat could be felt from within their confines.  

OOC: This event stands as preperation for the opening of Scion Space.

After investigations lodged by Aizu-Shoto and CorpSec, the wreckage hovering
beyond the solar system has been probed and explored, an ancient docking
station discovered that permitted access to the rest of the structure.  A
warning has been issued to those who wish to dock there - the dangers are
unknown, and anyone who boards do so at their own risk.  Further
investigation is currently being conducted to determine whether the ruins -
of human design - really may be the remnants of the Final Frontier.

Word spreads through Sector 7 of a CorpSec cyberdoc, Azura Dessanto, opening
a clinic in the area.  The planned clinic has unsurprisingly been shunned by
some of the wealthier pursuers of body alteration, while the reception among
the middle and lower classes has been fairly positive.  Dessanto delivered
his announcement cheerfully from Sector 7, announcing the viable option to

"Citizens of Earth and the Colonies, be advised, by now you've all heard of
the derelict fleet drifting back into Sol.  Rumors are no doubt abound with
flights of fancy, you are warned not approach under any circumstances or your
safety cannot be guaranteed.  Salvage rights will not be honoured for anyone
stupid enough to run headfirst into the devils maw."

However, a small text ticker prints at the bottom of the screen throughout
the warning.  It reads, 'A bounty for information will be provided once
verified.'

Government officials of the Terran Initiative enjoying their traditional
government furlough for Christmas and the New Year's holidays returned to
their offices to find things in dissaray.  They reported grass growing out of
keyboards and vines sprouting from crackling holoscreens as if nature itself
had chosen to take some kind of vengence on members of President Hagen's
party.

Among the debris was a listed redress of grievances against the President's
recent decision to veto the Terra Protection Act.  News stations buzz with
the word that upon the wall was left the mossy cyclic triangle tag of the
SLF.

and the Syndicate have been encouraged to investigate, others are taking
matters into their own hands.  The real question is, does the mugger operate
alone?

General.  After the landslide of votes against his position by a number of

claimed the title, it has been said that the role has been quickly filled as
a result of this.  A few hunters spoke out, that it was a collective decision
to take less conspicuous approach in who runs the Syndicate from now on.

These experienced hunters go on to say that this does not mean the Syndicate
will be any less of a legitimate organization, nothing changes, except
there's a little more added privacy in their dealings.  Their new, nameless
General, has requested these changes as a progressive push forward to
traditional methods.

News stations report in that the rather wealthy and well known Harper
Corporation seem to have had a sudden boost in success amongst their various
enterprises whether due to good marketing, boosts in the industries, good
investments or good friends is unknown however what is evident is that the
various harper clubs and other enterprises are becoming more and more popular
and talked about with the Harper family beginning to gain a galaxy-wide
measure of fame amongst it all too.  This may also be helped by rumours of
talks between heiress Sapphire Harper and the Lotus Circle, of which she's a
member, about a rebranding of the sector 7 club and turning it into a much
more high-brow cocktail lounge.  Whether there's any truth to these rumours
remains to be seen but the closing of the sector 7 strip club amongst the

The conclusion of the official photojournalism contest on Terra came with a
dark horse from the streets of Sector 7 itself.  A prole whose submissions
have garnered popularity over the matrix galleries was announced the grand
prize winner over hundreds of participants, corporate and pros included. 
They go by the pseudonym "Aguilus" and watermark their photographs with a
flying eagle logo.  

Said to express the perspective of your day-to-day citizen dealing with
unfairness and injustice, their work has been praised by critics as raw,
gritty, and hideously beautiful.  One famous news photographer commented,
"Aguilus shows people the truth that we cannot swallow." Their entries have
garnered the most hits among proles and activist groups, causing a flare of
#ImpeachHagen rallying.

In the face of Cordenelle Steele's continued absence and neglect of the
organization he has sworn to lead, Aizu Shoto's head of manufacturing has
begun whispering in the ears of any who will listen.  Even as she speaks of
the man in question with a great deal of affection, her stance is firm as she
encourages these individuals to lend support to nudging the Chairman out of
office so that he might be replaced by one with more drive than he has shown
in months.

In addition to word of mouth, the young manufacturing lead has come together
with other division heads to discuss the continued survival of the
organization and paths they may or may not take should they navigate the
current crisis.

In the face of Aizu Shoto's stagnation, one Katie Dawson seeks to tease the
minds of fellow employees with what the organization could be with an active
leader, thus gently seeking to incite a slow, if inexorable rebellion against
the current status quo.

Word spread to all corners of Sol about the leader of the Lotus, the Exalted
One, making a rather odd business decision.  Instead of investing in
blockbuster holovids or performances for his people, the Lotus has taken on
multiple defense contracts which saw a flood of armed mercenaries, or
"Defense Contractors," as they prefer to call themselves, flock to the Dome
in Venus.  

While the Lotus has been quite silent regarding the nature of their decision
toenhance the security around the Lotus, several rumors spread that it was
due to the rampant increase of violent crime in an otherwise idyllic place of
performance.  While such is unconfirmed by any notable party in the Lotus as
of yet, the silence only saw to the spread of various takes on the news, from
a feud against the bondsmen, to the CorpSec planning a systematic annexation
of the law enforcement in Venus.  The truth however, is still kept under
tight wraps.

The words one Katie Dawson murmured into the ears of interns and leads alike
regarding Aizu Shoto's possible future sparked a wave of resurgence in the
corporation's ranks.  Votes against the former Chairman's acedia rained down
like fire in the gambit the young division lead stirred into being, resulting
in Cordenelle Steele's inevitable ousting from the position.

There was little question among Aizu members who would step in to fill the
power vacume the official absence of leadership would leave in its wake; one
eighteen year old woman had sparked it all, and it was to her they turned
when her gambit was successful.  To her they look now, silently waiting for
her to bring to life the dreams she painted upon formerly despondent minds.

When we caught up with Katie Dawson as she emerged from the meeting in which
she was informed of her new title, we could not help but note the rather
shellshocked expression the tiny Saturni bore upon her fragile countenance. 
When we asked her for a comment, she pivoted slowly to face the camera and
had this to say:

"Aizu Shoto is more than my place of employment.  It is my family now." One
delicate hand gestured toward the northern tower of the Aizu Shoto org hall
even as her hazel eyes sought out the lense of the holo device filming her. 
"I did not gambit our former Chairman out of malice, but because I have a
dream for this organization, and that dream requires action, not inaction. 
It requires dedication to responsibilities, not the abnegation of them.  I
want Aizu Shoto to thrive, not die."

When we asked why she looked so shocked, the young woman only canted her
head, lips parting upon an unfettered laugh.  "I reached for a dream," she
confessed.  "And the dream reached back."

With that rather sentimental response, the new Chair of Aizu Shoto refused
further comment, retreating into the northern tower and vanishing from sight.

 Word poured out from the Westside of Sector 7, that a group, led by a tall,
masked figure made their way into the heart of the Dregs, armed to the teeth
with firearms.  Intent on bringing a rather slippery thief, known as the Blue
Haired Bandit, into justice.  Sources and eye-witnesses said something about
the group breaking into a known gang hide out, guns blazing, and coming out a
few hours later covered in grime, sweat and some say blood, though it was
evident that most of the blood weren't theirs.

Official reports coming from Bondsmen claim that the thief, known as 'Shin'
was killed even prior to the action, with the official cause of death ruled
as overdosing.  It's also said that the gang the man was associated with,
called the Stingers, was summarily brought to swift justice, with their
members either KIA, captured, or currently hunted down by the law.  Among
those killed in action was their Kingpin, a notorious gangster whose name has
been linked to various felonies such as counterfeiting and organized crime,
as well as criminal conspiracy.

While the group that made the heroic effort to bring down the gang is still
otherwise mostly unidentified, among them was an unmasked, C-Sec Enlistee,
Kenneth Jones, who as of now still refuses to comment on the nature of the
operation, stating only that the people of Sector 7 can reast easier, knowing
that a criminal was taken off the streets.

_________________________________________________________________________
With the entrenchment of Ronald Hagen's reputation among members of the
Terran Initiative, as well as the influence of #ImpeachHagen trends across
the matrix, newsreels, and photo exhibits, Shija Sai decided that the time
has come for a change.

Beyond compiling a report for the Senate that detailed how colonial
relations, infrastructure development, and the government itself have
suffered much under the leadership of President Ronald Hagen, she will seek
out like-minded leaders across other organizations to either work with her
for a better galactic future or remain rooted in lethargic corruption.  

Petitions will be spread in the matrix where the anonymous citizens can pour
out their disgust and freely share their opinions on the current Terran
president.  Of course, photographs from contracted artists will be
everywhere, reminding people of Hagen's gaffes, his lies, and just how stupid
he seems to believe the populace to be.  

More than this, Shija will ensure that there is a solution to this problem. 
She will make certain that the masses know that there can be diplomacy rather
than brash action.  That there can be better housing rather than sweeping the
poor under the rug.  That there can be unity rather than useless rabble
amongst ourselves.

A few hours ago, one of the three candidates running for Presidency spoke
out.  Duke Ramsey called Shija Shaasti Sai out for being a fascist with
hidden agendas for the populace of Earth.  He goes on to point out that Shija
Sai is born and bred silver-spooned prodigy, her family of influental wealth
and power.  He goes on to say that, with her speech about hope and unity for
the destitute and people of her status alike, he believes she would be no
better than Hagen with no social awareness or thought about their actions and
the consequences to follow.  If she believes her own speech, that's reason to
not vote for her he said.  Change will take time he continued.  "I'm offering
real change, not false dreams and promises built on the trust of the
vulnerable with hot air".  The Chief of Security aboard Valhalla finished by
saying, CorpSec's recent expidition to Deep Space to scour the Final Frontier
in past months DID infact yield results of alien lifeform, and Shija's
backing of CorpSec raises suspicion along with Impeached President Hagen's
public defiancy and past behavior.  Duke said that he would like to be
transparent with all of the citizens of Earth going forward, and harboring
secrets from public is no way to be transparent for real change.  Will the
Mega Corporations be held responsible in light of this?  What will Director
Redgrave have to say for himself following the recent press release of

A Consequential Influence Event

Earlier this week, Garmven Hayze from Sector 22, corporate heir to the Hayze
Manufacturing Corporation, went live on channel 999.999 CNP with talk show
host Tom Mitchel to formally announce himself as the third candidate entering
the race for the next President of the Terran Initiative.

When asked after his belated public appearance, being the last of the three
candidates to make himself known, Hayze offered up a rumbling laugh, a smile,
and a brogue-tinged explanation of, "I got meself riddled with holes durin'
that shootin' on Venus.  Stubborn man that I am, I wanted to limp down here
to the station of me own volition before goin' on air."

During his interview on channel 999.999, Hayze spent most of his time
speaking on his platform and those issues most important to him going into
this campaign season: social unity, environmental preservation, and galactic
relations.

"As president, I want to be, for lack of a less poetic term, a bridge between
the classes that'll draw us closer together as people rather than further
apart as classes," Hayze said.  "People are people, be they peer, corporate
or prole, and every voice deserves nay only to be heard, but to be listened
to.  I want to protect the last vestiges of the natural world still
remainin', even as we seek to venture far beyond Terra.  This land is
humanity's home and as its home, it deserves to be cared for.

"Mayhaps I want too much.  I want to listen to the voices cryin' for help.  I
want to protect what's left of Terra.  I want to repair the damage done to
the relations between Terra and the other colonies.  I'm just one man and
canna do these things on me own.  But with your help, the people all across
our Sol, I know these are things we can do together."

When asked after his opinions on his running mate's Sai and Ramsey,
especially given his previous public disdain during the CorpSec-Initiative
press conference where Miss Sai shared a speech about hope for the future,
Hayze merely had this to say: "I'll nay sit here on air and blast foul things
about two people all across the Sol if that's what ye're tryin' to get me to
do, Tom.  All three of us have our own platforms.  Do I agree with everythin'
me runnin' mates are sayin'?  Nay.  But it's up to the people of this system
to make that choice for themselves and vote for the candidate they feel will
represent them best in the term to come.  Thank ye for your time."

better future.' And, indeed, Aizu-Shoto - regardless of our recent missteps,
regardless of our off-tempo - seeks to always improve both itself, Terra, and
the System."

"Knowing that, our support officially falls with Mister Garmven Hayze. 
Regardless of his lack of experience in politics, we feel strongly as though
Mister Hayze represents a trait that many Presidents before have lacked - the
ability to surround one's self with experts in particular fields while
admitting a lack of training or understanding, and the genuine wont to
improve the lot of millions, both on and off-planet.  Mister Hayze has our
full support, and that of our subsidiaries around the System."

"Regardless of the outcome, regardless of the decision of the People in our
beautiful democratic system, Aizu-Shoto looks forward to forging stronger,
surer bonds with the Initiative for the benefit of both the System and it's
People.  It is our hope that the Initiative, and whoever may head it, feel

Perched atop a wrecked car, a slender lass with sky blue hair is playing a

"Citizen! Some of us still remind what the words equity, honesty, and

expected from our leaders when democracy was more than a word. Today,
there is a man whom I believe has these qualities: Garmven Hayden.  I
saw him cry for the death of an unknown lass. I saw his concerned for
the life of proles. I know his conviction for transparency. I know his
respect for each human being.

 Garmven Hayden is a man we know for certain has personal qualities to become
a good leader.  We know that with him, humanity may have a chance to take
charge of its destiny.  Because that's what is on stake today: either we
choose to abandon our destiny to unreachable leaders, either we choose a man
who has decided to work with us to forge a future we are part of, a future
which offers a place to each of us.  

Citizen! Today is the day for us to become responsible of our own
destiny. Support your choosen candidate! Stop supporting your
organization leader if they are not supporting your candidate. Do it
for you, for your relatives, for your children, and children's
children. Hope is not dead yet!"

 The lass plucks the strings of her guitar again, filling the air with waves
of electric enthusiasm, and her smile suddenly shines like stars shine,
sparkling with an indestructible hope.

In response to Heylenne Daubigny's released holovid clip wherein she voices

"And in this democracy, every citizen, regardless of whether they're a mere

Terran corporate heir went on to say, "I stand for honesty and transparency,
for such are traits we should always strive never to lose sight of.  I am
grateful Miss Daubigny spoke out in support of me, but her message is
unfortunately nay one I can fully support meself; the idea of withdrawin'
