EternusIV Posted April 9, 2004 Report Share Posted April 9, 2004 WASHINGTON SYSTEM (AP) - An apparent emotial breakdown of a Spawn pathfinder pilot may cause complications for the increasingly silent relations between the Everlasting Spawn and Arcane Services, Inc. Hours ago, a Spawn pilot inexplicably changed his standing orders to Yankee forcing his ship to engage fire with a superior Arcane Services Inc fleet in the Washington system. Oal Pala of the Trivu Waii Padta survey fleet, didn't stand a chance. Inside sources reveal that he had been separated from his family for well over a year and was developing an immunity to the psychological boosters that often alleviate the stresses of extended space travel. Could his depression have caused him to voluntarily change his standing orders? "The young seed had been going through a lot," said a surviving mentor of the pilot who asked to remain anonymous. "We've got too many little fleets just hanging out with nothing to do. This was bound to happen sooner or later." The Imperial Navy has convened to discuss the creation of a committee to look into the situation and take preventative measures to avoid future tragedies of this sort. Officer Beai Paa was available for comment: "We've got a terrible situation. We don't blame Arcane Services, Inc for firing back. They were doing their job...a damn fine one of it, too if you ask me. I feel sorry for the family members of Oal Pala and for the shame he may have brought to our naval outpost in Kyushu." Commanders in the neighboring Kyushu system have refused comment until the "accident" could be more fully explained and have since reprimanded Officer Beai Paa for his comments. "Its a shame," commented the Outpost Chaplain. "We were thrilled to see a new race! Two species sharing the same warp point for so long....what was the young man thinking? I know Oal very well. He was a good kid. I'm surprised. Valakar the Swift might not be pleased." The Trivuu Waii Padta and 400th Wargames Fleet shared the Washington System warp point for several turns without incident. Fleets standing by in Kyushu have been ordered to "Code Green" status and stand ready while diplomats scramble to patch relations with Arcane Services Inc As one spawn said, "Heck - I don't know why they [Arcane Services, Inc] would be so upset...they didn't lose anybody." Oal Pala is survived by his young wife and 2,312 Spawnlings. ===================================================== ** NAVAL BATTLE REPORT ** ----- WASHINGTON [ A (White) 4 Ia ] [single Star] - Warp Point 41304 ----- ** Imperial Navy Report: Fleet Order of Battle ** The Everlasting Spawn # 1728 [Trivu Nertio Trivi] Trivu Waii Padta [ROE: Y] *Total Defense* (Fleet Tonnage: 12,000) Deploy Location 7] 1 FS Pathfinder (Fleet Scout - 12,000 tons [each]) ** DESTROYED ** Fire Control: Fair ..
