A massive Martian man flanked by a dainty floating white hair woman are
positioned behind a desk when the camera turns on.  The Martian man speaks up
in his harsh rough voice.  "People of Sol, this is Angus Johnson.  We at the
Union have been working hard to better humanity's future going forward." He
pauses for a moment and looks over to the floating woman.  "Dr.  Winters,
chairwoman of Biodyne, has assisted in a project of ours, her knowledge in
biotech invaluable to the cause." He motions to the woman to speak, as she
does, her lips curl up into a sweet smile.  "Hello, everyone," She says, her
tone somewhat icen and calm.  "I am happy to inform that we have managed to
creat a strand of plant life.  This strand of plant life will help clean the
atmosphere of earth of any pollutants, this will be a great benefit to
everyone's health and well-being and hopefully make our home more
sustainable.  More will be to come, thank you, Steward, thank you, everyone."
The scene seems to go a buzz after with lights and reporters asking questions
before the camera goes out.

A bubbly news report comes up onto a scene of people going about the park
digging holes and putting new plants into the ground.  "Greetings Seven!" The
bubbly blond says in a very excited tone.  "We're here today to talk about a
new project the Union started on.  They seem to want to have people plant all
kinds of new greens around seven!" He says in an excited tone.  "Seems the
Steward is making an effort to get the community involved in making our world
greener." The blond went one before looking to the camera.  "Now back to
Johnathan with sports." The woman gives a bubbly smile and wave over to the
camera as it turns over to the sports reporter.

A bubbly blond is out in the park again, as children play and a bunch of new
green plants are placed about.  It seems the park is flourishing with plant
life.  "Greetings Seven!" She says in her bubbly voice.  "Looks like the
Unions little project has been a huge success!  Seems people do care about
the future and were happy to come together for a little work into it." Shes
says before going to several people to talk with them.

 One of the Max Headroom Matrix post, shows following video feed:

A large quantity of people, some prominent and more known, others less so
gathered and arrived at the hospital.  The video switches between the parking
lot and the VTOL landing pad, showing people arriving and being guided into
the Biodyne Tower.  Among those people, Biodynes current chairwoman
Antoinette Winters as well as the Scion leader of the Artificial Life
Protections party that lost its candidacy in the elections half a year ago.

The Feed speeds up forward, showing no further activity for several hours,
after which many of the previously arrived people begin to depart, many found
to be looking on with a thoughtful expression.  The camera focuses on the
soon leaving Chairwoman and the ALPs party leader leaving together, shaking
hands and talking some more.

The video feed ends when the ALPs party leader leaves in a VTOL and text
scrolls over the holo-video feed.  What could they have been up to?  What
were they discussing behind closed doors?  Comment below!

The camera focuses on a well dressed reporter standing inside of the Naoshima
Building Checkpoint. The camera tilts and focuses on a black-eyed Martian man
flanked by several Venusian men in well tailored suits on his way to the back
office.  Mister Telft, do you care to comment on the past Oyabun resignation?
The reporter calls out.  The Martian man stops and offers a quick wave,
leaning into the microphone to speak, Projects will resume as normal.  This
is not a shift in ideals, only the people behind them.  With that, the man
steps back and a few of Venusian suits usher him from view.

Exalted One Rita Flores' tenure in the position has come to a swift, and
sudden close today as she has officially announced she is stepping down from
the position and leaving the organization.  Various rumors abound about the
reason, it is noted that Rita had been an active participant in the war
against the Quzot alongside working to pull the pieces of the Lotus Circle
together, and the infrastructure of the Lotus Circle is now recovering
steadily.

There was apparently some resistance in some groups in the lotus circle, with
Rita's Departure, some members of the Lotus are concerned of the future of
the organization, mainly among many of the high-level corporate officials,
but after some time, the officials in the Lotus decided to relent, when
requested for an interview, they were unavailable due to recovering at the
hospital due to a recent accident.  "The official in question seemed quite
afraid to comment." stated one journalist and Media.

Rita Addresses the Lotus and the Public.  "I don't make this decision
lightly, and it is not my intention to leave the Lotus in a wayward position.
Life has a way of changing, and in my current stage of life, I think its
better I step down from this position.  I had a great time, and learned quite
a bit as Exalted One, and won't ever forget the experience - but my heart
calls to me elsewhere.  I plan to leave sector seven and wander about, for
how long, I do not know." is explained with a faint chuckle.  "Lotus.  Keep
being an inspiration, set an example of culture, history, showmanship, and
art." she said.  "Sector 7, Terra.  Humanity, I'll see you on the flip side."
she stated, then paused.  "Remember, Shoot for the highest ya can, for you're
the inspiration for the rest of Humanity." A few more less interesting
questions are answered, but one reporter asks for more information about why
Rita is stepping down, which Rita looks annoyed at.

"I'm steppin' down to open the opportunity to someone else, while I head off
to pursue my own life.  Thats all it is.  Ain' anyones business but my own"
she answered, aiming to now depart, though some audio is caught as she is
departing by one of the journalists, with Rita speaking a distance away as
she approaches her motorcycle.

"Fuckin' finally..  I can breathe, Freedom!  See ya, corpie sh--"

The following broadcast aired on July 29, 2372:

[Lotus Broadcast, 000.000] The scene opens on a stylish press briefing room
bedecked in imperial red banners bearing the symbolic white lotus.  While
breaking news headlines scroll across the bottom of the screen, a young woman
of Saturni descent steps into the frame.  She is dressed in a modestly-cut,
white satin cheongsam, and her pale hair is styled in a low ballet bun. 
Beneath her, the headlines begin to read, "Former Peer and GBIL Athlete Deja
Johanssen Takes Up Mantle of Exalted One: Miss Johanssen had been presumed
MIA since the wreckage of her home station, Lysstrale, was recovered approx. 
One year ago."

[Lotus Broadcast, 000.000] While independent news outlets speculate, the woman
on holo starts to speak.  "Greetings, Sector Seven," she begins in her
silvery, Saturni lilt, hands clasped calmly before her.  "I am pleased to
announce that in the coming months, the Lotus Circle will be making concerted
efforts to broaden its talent pool and expand its central mission.  More than
just a collection of celebrities and companions, our organization aims to
promote culture and inspire people in a variety of ways.  To that end, we are
eager to collaborate with other organizations on projects of mutual interest,
and we will be taking steps to make membership more appealing to fresh
talent."

[Lotus Broadcast, 000.000] "In the meantime, my office will be available for
questions and outreach, and we offer our best wishes to former leaders Miss
Rita Flores and Miss Justice Zhang who helped pave the way.  Thank you, and I
look forward to serving the Lotus Circle and the people of Terra." The
Saturni finishes her announcement with a polite, Venusian-style bow to the
camera, and the official broadcast ends.

Reporters swarm around the Union Outlet, microphones extended and questions
rapid-fire.  In the center of the clamor is a small, elderly Martian woman
with large brown eyes and a fluffy explosion of grey, frizzy hair.  She
appears to be noisily sucking on a corn-cob tobacco pipe and glaring daggers
at the press.  

The feed cuts to a reporter for the Sector 7 News, her clean-cut corporate
attire and pretty face flickering into view.  "We're here at the Sol Worker's
Union Outlet with a Miss Agatha Stone, who has stepped in to lead the
recently defunct organization!  Miss Stone, do you have any words for the
people of Sector 7?"

The small, elderly woman snatches the mic like an alligator, smiling sweetly
and holding it to her lips.  "Call me Granny, dear." She turns to look
directly into the camera, her eyes a battle-axe flint.  "People of Seven, yer
city's in a shit state.  There's barely any upkeep of the infrastructure, an'
I could blow over the power grid.  People are eatin' synthmeat and beans, fer
cryin' out loud!" 

She spits, and it lands with the weight of a bullet into a metal tin -
causing the reporter to squeak in shock.  "Economy is in such a sorry state
that I got a little letter from th'Union, draggin' me out of the Outlands. 
Been out there, beyond the far, far reaches - diggin' wells, mostly.  Well
now, it's time to dig some of me own water, right here." She taps the
concrete step she's sat on, and grins a slightly gummy smile.  "This is an
open invitation to the Collective, t'Biodyne, to CorpSec, an' Naoshima.  I'll
even talk with the Lotus, even if the old sods were rude about me singin'
voice.  Talk to the Union, an' work with us."

This morning in Sector Seven, longtime member Sato Nakamura was promoted to
Chairman of the Collective after a series of debates from shareholders. 
Early in the morning, the new Chairman spoke with a group of thoroughly
disinterested press.

"I look forward to being able to serve the Corporate interest, as I have for
some time.  To allay investor concerns : I have no intention of letting my
personal feelings get in the way of business.  I very much look forward to
working alongside my Corporate peers, and taking our Commissioners advice at
the Spire to heart."

With that, he excused himself, and the small gathering dispersed without
further questions.

In recent a press announcement, Exalted One Deja Johanssen invited the
general public to visit the Lotus Pictures Studio in the Kabukicho District. 
More than that, she asked for feedback on what the Lotus Circle could do to
make the Studio more appealing to visitors and guests.

"Since last month, the Lotus Circle has been taking small steps to make the
Studio a more attractive entertainment venue for visitors and their families,
but to really make a difference, I could use your help," she told viewers
during the press interview.  "I invite you to visit the Studio over the next
few weeks, enjoy a tour of the facilities, or have a bite to eat at the
restaurant.  Then, let us know what you think.  You can send your feedback
directly to my office with your thoughts and suggestions for improvement.  We
are interested in everything from decor ideas to shops, menu items, even new
attractions.  Furthermore, any suggestions we implement will be appropriately
credited to the individuals who made them -- unless they are submitted
anonymously, of course."

Johanssen concluded, "If you would like to make a lasting impact on a sector
landmark, this is an excellent opportunity.  I am eager to involve as many
people as would like to be involved in the improvement efforts."

If successful, it's speculated that the project could result in hundreds, if
not thousands, in commissions to Workers, engineers, and artists throughout
the sector.

Early morning on the 29th of October, a press conference was held outside of
Biodyne general hospital. A petite saturni woman, now well known as the chief
registrar of Biodyne stepped outside to greet the gathered crowd.  'First of
all, I want to thank Dr.  Antoinette Winters, for her long and distinguished
tenure as chairwoman of Biodyne," she said, her voice projecting easily over
the crowd. She will continue to be a member of the organization, and will
undoubtedly continue to be an invaluable member. "Secondly, I want to
reassure you all that quality patient care and safety will still be Biodyne's
number one priority.  I also want to thank all of you, as well as our
employees for bearing with us during this transition.  I will do everything
in my power, to make this transition as smooth as possible.  I wish for
Biodyne to continue building bridges, and to promote good relations among the
various organizations.  Lastly, I want everyone to know, that I intend to
keep an open door policy.  If anyone has any questions or concerns, please
feel free to stop by the hospital.  I look forward to speaking with each and
everyone of you.  Thank you.  With that, she stepped back into the hospital,
smiling and waving amiably to the press.

The following announcement was broadcast over public channel 000.000 in
mid-November, leading up to the Christmas holiday: 

The broadcast opens with a view of the interior of the Lotus Pictures Studio.
Across a bustling lobby, a tall Christmas tree stands resplendent and
bedecked in holographic ribbons.  At its base is a mountain of wrapped gifts
of various shapes and sizes.  The frame shifts to focus on the figure of a
young Saturni, Exalted One Deja Johanssen.  "Greetings, Sector Seven," she
says, clasping her hands in front of her lap and bowing politely toward the
camera.  "Please join me in celebrating the holidays this year at the Lotus
Pictures Studio in the Kabukicho District.  Gifts will be available under the
tree from now until the New Year's event." 

To make visiting the Studio easier during the holidays, the Lotus Circle has
partnered with a local taxi company, which will transport guests free of
charge directly to the Studio parking lot from near the Central Spire.

A sudden shift and a drastic movement in the upper echelons of the corporate
world centers its eye onto the Naoshima Syndicate.  Emails were released that
indicate for the Naoshima to have once been one of the Five Families, a once
criminal organization that preceded the Naoshima in their criminal doings. 
Spearheaded by former Biodyne chairwoman, Antoinette Winters, the Corporate
World gathers behind her as its eye turns to the evidence and the recent
terrorist actions conducted by the Naoshima's Saiko Komon, Yosemite
Winchester.  Yosemite Winchester is a known criminal and terrorist, having
conducted several raids onto the sector, killing and wounding innocents left
and right.  From firebombing, utilizing incendiaries to illegal Plasma
weaponry and power armor, with no regard to human lives.  The otherwise legal
appearing Naoshima proves itself managed by more than just a minor criminal,
with a set CorpSec bounty of 10.000 credits.  Between this, the exposed
emails as well as other unspoken clandestine actions, an increasing demand
forms for the Naoshima to cease its activity, between those with dealings
with them pushing for Yosemite Winchester to be removed from the public eye
to formed outrage against his actions, the corporate world gathered to oppose

Though the recent gambit against the terrorist Yosemite Winchester was
successful, it seems to have done little to satisfy the Corporate World. 
People still remember Kepler getting blacklisted for continuously attacking
and insulting Biodyne, which, with the recent look at the new painting at the
Biodyne parking lot with claims that CorpSec is dead, still stands as proof
that the slummer is not only seen as violent but highly unstable, with the
blacklist only lifted with personal relations during circumstantial reasons
from during the war, much to the dislike and disappointment of the Corporate
Elite.  Word that he can only be negotiated with when he is high as a kite,
and a piece of slummer shit when not, has been witnessed not only by former
Biodyne Chairwoman Antoinette Winters, but many people across different
organizations leadership, even leading to the failure of any diplomatic
relations between the Syndicate and every other organization a year ago and
it does not stop there.  His failure to stem Yosemite Winchesters Terrorism,
failing to uphold some resemblence of peace and proven incapable and
incompetent at negotiating with people that refuse to submit or disagree with
him.  Yes, people still remember when Kepler Telft behaved like he would own
the entire sector and behaved like he would be the ruler of everyone, getting
offended over not being greeted and then suspected to kill his own members
when they disagreed with his vicious behavior.  The reasons for
dissatisfaction are numerous, and people from within, as well as the outside
continue to demand for greater change, to demand that the Naoshima Syndicate
returns to its honorable roots, over the vicious slummer gang that Telft
turned it into, that now infects what remains like a disease.

It appears that yet another push and demand for changes follow after the
realignment of the Naoshima Syndicate, this time targeting current Biodyne
chairwoman Amelia Norton.  Word from within the organization tells a story:
Many of its employees feel disappointed by the current chairwoman's actions
and absence.  For several months now, the Biodyne combat medic corp,
responsible for protecting and rescuing the Corporate's Finest from danger,
has frequently complained about restrictions.  From suddenly being disallowed
to wield anything more than a pistol, reducing their general combat
effectiveness to complaints from within the hospital staff, notioning that
chairwoman Norton is cruel, throwing and firing the understaffed hospital at
a whim as well as meddling into people's personal lives, restricting whom
they may date, under threat of termination to mismanagement and a recent
absence, without leaving anyone responsible or able to care and tend to the
organization's needs.  The shareholder eye a drop in a drop in stock pricing,
as Chairwoman Norton's actions have caused heavy difficulties with the
functions of medical care and aid, and others again appear unhappy, claiming
that Chairwoman Norton had high shoes to fill, and could not even come close
to comparing to former Chairwoman Antoinette Winter's ability to manage the
organization effectively.  All this came to a recent heed, as Lara Winters
stepped in to organize and train Biodyne's staff, noting that new staff is
heavily neglected and receive insufficient training in addition to previously
stated concerns, and is now rallying internal staff to see Amelia Norton
replaced.

The press were summoned to CorpSec Headquarters today to receive a briefing
on ongoing changes within the structure of CorpSec.  It appears the sitting
Commissioner Stanton Redgrave has in a shock decision chosen to retire from
the role of Commissioner of CorpSec, when cited directly for the reason
Mister Redgrave had this to say.

"Christ, you're a nosey fucker.  I've been doing this job in some capacity
for 35 years and it's about time someone else had a go and bring some young
ideas to the table." And he swiftly departed the briefing room, while a
CorpSec press officer took over.

It was stated that Mister Redgrave has accepted an advisory position within
the U.S.E on matters of homeworld defence along with maintaining a role
within CorpSec as a Praetorian.

President of the U.S.E Luis Navarro had this to say on a live Holo-Interview
regarding the decision when pressed for comment, "Stanton Redgrave has had a
very, very long history and career within the governments of Earth.  He began
as a simple beat cop in Old England working for CorpSec, slowly rising to the
top on a platform of wiping out corruption- he did so, and took control of
CorpSec some 25 years ago after a high-profile case involving the sentencing
of almost the entire CorpSec board of directors of that time.  He has served
Earth for all his life, he has given everything and sacrificed much to
protect its Citizens.  A leading figure during the Initiative civil war,
having attempted to maintain neutrality with CorpSec - but during the bombing
of Tharsis, the capital of Mars, he decided it was time to act.  Spearheaded
by CorpSec and the Martian Independence movement in a combined arms
operation, the Initiative was defeated.  The sitting president arrested and
tried for war crimes, and subsequently executed for the deaths of millions.

"Mister Redgrave was instrumental in forming the new system of governance,
the Sol Ascendancy, as a temporary military government to restore order after
the bloody civil war and to reinforce the defences that guard humanity after
the emergence of the Scion threat.  These early works were instrumental in
the survival of our race, and for that he has our utmost thanks."

The President continues, "And during the invasion itself by the Quzot, those
bloody, bloody hours.  He rose to the table and took control of Earths
defences, fleets and boots on the ground during those horrible times, saving
countless lives.  An unwinnable battle by all accounts, the delaying tactics
paid off - with the Quzot invasion fleet being destroyed by collaborative
effort of many citizens and our way of life allowed to continue thanks to the
great sacrifice of those honoured heroes.  We thank Stanton Redgrave for his
life long service to Justice, Stability and Order."

The Vid then cuts to a small ceremony with the president and Stanton Redgrave
present, the latter being given a painting of a spitfire along with a firm

Today marks the day the new CorpSec Commissioner Kirin Anic steps in and
picks up where the well earned retiree Stanton Redgrave left off.  He has
shown enthusiasm for his promotion from Praetorian to his new role as
Commissioner and had this to say after his meeting with higher ups.  "Good
day Sector 7.  I will restore order and safety to the streets of Sector 7 and
the criminal syndicates and henious individuals that plaque them and our
sector we call home will learn to abide with the Law or be met with judgement
of this honorable security force that swears to protect the livelihood of you
and your family." He smiles at the camera beside Corpsec employees before it
cuts off.  Alike to Stanton Redgrave in commitment to duty and the safety of
the citizens, and a former Praetorian, the new Commissioner sounds devoted
and ready to bring new changes to our streets.

After more than a month of necessary changes, Lara Winters, as she had
internally announced, stepped down and requested the Shareholders for the
position to be handed to Antoinette Winters after some necessary
negotiations.  Shareholders welcomed her capable ability for leadership back,
but expressed concerns due to more recent history and the recent news
regarding Paradeus.  Doctor Winters assured them, stating that she will
adequately handle any challenge that they may come to face and that the two
entities will be held on different ends and not conflict with one anothers
goals and that she will correct the mistakes that have arised in the previous
months.

The following broadcast aired on the morning of May 31, 2373:

The broadcast opens on a stylish press briefing room bedecked in imperial red
banners bearing the symbolic white lotus.  A tall Saturni in a petal-pink
cheongsam takes the podium, recognized as Exalted One Deja Johanssen. 
"Greetings, Sector Seven," she begins steadily, focusing her gaze on the
camera.  "Today, I would like to call attention to the continued decline of
the sector's infrastructure and to determine whether there is something that
we can to about it - together."

In the upper right of the screen, a frame appears, displaying footage of
trash-strewn parks and the poorly maintained buildings around them.  After a
breath, the Saturni continues, "With Golden Week fast approaching, it is
important that we each do our part to ensure that the streets, parks, and
districts are kept clean and safe for travel."

"To that end, the Lotus Circle will be taking volunteers to help with a
community cleanup in and around the Kabukicho District.  I implore other
organization and community leaders to do the same in their respective
neighborhoods - or to find other ways to assist in the efforts.  My office is
open and my resources are available to any who would like to discuss other
ways to address the problem.  Thank you." The Exalted One dips her head and
shoulders in a polite bow to the camera, and the broadcast ends.

The press release begins with a wide shot of the visitor's atrium at the
corporate building belonging to the recently remodeled Collective campus,
several reporters ranged around the large empty space in the center of the
room.  Standing before them is the chairman, a tall Saturni gentleman with
dark hair, his bright green eyes moving slowly from one face to the next as
he addresses the crowd.

"As you can see," he is saying in his rich smooth baritone, "Our organization
has gone through a considerable rebranding as of late.  We have endeavored to
make ourselves more friendly, accessible, and amenable to the interests of
the everyday citizen both in Sector Seven and beyond.  Our new VTOL landing
pad has made picking up and dropping off deliveries dozens of times easier,
family men and women may enroll their children at our exclusive private
elementary school and day care center, and even if you can't get ahold of an
engineer on pub zero, you may come here and put in a request on our brand new
informational datapad.  As a mark of the continuing corporate changes, the
board has seen fit to rebrand, leaving behind all remnants of the passed
where they belong and stepping into a new era of productivity and prosperity.
That is why, along with our brand new campus, we adopt a brand new name!"

The chairman gestures behind himself, signaling to a technician who flips a
switch, causing a beam of light to cut through the room, projecting the image
of a brand new logo and organization name onto the massive double doors
leading into the quadrangle beyond.  "It is my great pleasure and honor to
welcome you all," a dramatic pause before he says, "To EngiTech, Engineering
Technology Solutions Incorporated!"

A pause follows as a round of respectful applause fills the vaulted room
liberally interspersed with the inevitable chatter from the reporters. 
"Chairman, does this mean the collective is gone?" "Chairman, is the hiring
process different?" "Chairman, what of the rumors of a secret branch of this
new organization?  Is EngiTech opening its own paramilitary division like
Biodyne has?"

More questions come fast and loose, but the chairman raises a long-fingered
hand for silence and begins speaking as soon as the chatter calms.  "EngiTech
is the same organization at its heart," he says in reassuring tones.  "We
will still fill all the orders we fill now.  Furniture, weapons, fashion,
home appliances and so much more.  As our name implies, we provide solutions

to your engineering and technological problems, no matter what they may be by
filling the need as we fill the orders.  The difference is that we will
engage with the community on a new level.  We are committed to customer
satisfaction, so what are you waiting for?  Come on down and let's see what
we can do for you."

Thus saying, the tall Saturni bows respectfully to the crowd and retreats
with his immediate support staff, the tight group of public relations
officers, secretaries, and darkly suited security guards disappearing deeper
into the EngiTech campus as they studiously deflect yet more unending
questions from the reporters and onlookers.

In the aftermath of a movement to unseat the current Commissioner of CorpSec,
Kirin Anic, the dust has settled and the man remains firmly lodged within his
position of authority. Largely supported by the police force and corporate
entities throughout the sector, the forces working against him found the
results of their efforts in perpetual flux throughout the protests, until at
last it was over and the Commissioner was proven to have amassed too many
allies to be unseated.

Following the wake of the rebellious uprising of the Syndicate in the Little
Kabukicho region of the city, and in the wake of the plethora of accusations
leveled at the new Commissioner Kirin Anic, the Ghost's news headline
announcing a trial for the Commissioner has come to fruition.

With allegations such as assault, abuse of power, violation of the double
jeopardy clause, mistreatment of a prisoner, and more, the legendary CorpSec
Praetorian 'Ghost' has initiated the public trial of the Commissioner.  While
few outside CorpSec know what to expect, public trials being a rare thing in
this day and age, Ghost has sent word that the trial will be held in a
courtroom at the CorpSec HQ, and will be open to the public.  He has also
stated that absolutely no one will be permitted to interrupt, distort, or
disrupt the processes of his Court.

The trial is set to commence at 6:00 PM Server Time, Monday, August 16th.

Corporations and other businesses were outraged as CorpSec's Commissioner
Kirin Anic started a sector wide blockade, having made no official
announcement to speak of nor having spoken to any of the Corporations and
businesses to warn them of an incoming blockade.  Shareholders already voice
their disapproval of CorpSec's actions, threatening lawsuits in damages
numbering in the hundreds of millions, as businesses, manufacturing factories
and infrastructure slows to a halt, with people unable to move across
districts to move resources, materials, medicines and even food.  In sight of
the incoming trial, many of which are certain will result in severe
punishments for Commissioner Anic, it is believed that the Commissioner is
creating this to destabilize the sector, and last bastion of humanity, even
more than it already is, and for a first time in CorpSec's history, hundreds
of Corporations and businesses decide to blacklist the institution, as a
warning and reminder that business must go on and that their own failure in
the recent riots are for them alone to bear, and that they must not target
the good Corporations for their own failures.  The institution wide blacklist
is to last until the trial, where many expect for the man to be convicted for
a long list of things.

Following a night of heavy winds and the toppling of several communications
towers around the outer limits, citizens across the sector have reported a
massive outage of comm networks in and outside the sector limits, tuning in
to discover empty air on all open frequencies. The outage has been acknowledged
by Core Communications Co., who has attempted to assure the public that they
have sent out technicians to assess the damage and begin making repairs. 
Catching CCC technician at the site of one of the damaged towers right on the
outskirts of Sector 7, a reporter caught the following statement: "If it ain't

asked for clarification, the technician added: "I meant what I said!"
