Kamir Expert: The Kamir are Among Us Edit
Posted By: Wik'ikik Article: MAY06-1 Reported To: E!RN Reported On: Odari Reported At: Wed May 03 18:45:32 3006
IKIKIR, ODARI - Self-styled Kamir expert Pyr Solix is on a mission. For the last two years, he has been travelling the talk show circuits with a message: the Kamir still live. Now that the Kamir may have returned, he has a new message: the Kamir are among us. "Few people know this, but the Kamir have put their essence into dozens, perhaps even hundreds of sentient beings over the years," Solix said in an interview Tuesday. "If we don't destroy these nexuses of the Kamir's power, we'll never see the end of the Kamir." How can we tell friend from foe, however? Solix has a few simple tips. "If someone's eyes glow, or if a non-psionic race exhibits psionic-like abilities or other supernatural powers, those are the easiest way to tell." Another easy way, says Solix, is to bring a psi blocker in close proximity. "If a non-psionic race shows visible discomfort at a psi blocker's presence, that may be another clue that they're Kamir-possessed." Once you've found a Kamir-possessed, though, Solix doesn't advise engaging them. "I suggest reporting these poor souls to your local authorities as soon as possible. These beings are more powerful than you can imagine. And they could be the person standing right next to you."

Haskins to form political party Edit
Posted By: Marson Article: MAY06-3 Reported To: INN Reported On: Sivad Reported At: Tue May 09 21:39:59 3006
(Enaj, Sivad) - In the wake of his recent assault by Kamiroid Marlan Ranix, Dr. Lester Haskins announced plan to form a new political party, named 'Sivadians First Party.' "Sivad has, in the name of multiculturialism and political correctness, sacrificed more and more of its identity. A recent example is the illegality of psi blockers. Sivadian citizens were deprived of the means to non-violently defend themselves against alien intrusions into their minds, simply so aliens could be more comfortable. This new party will see to be unashamed of our heritage, and our identity, and put humanity -- the true natives of Sivad, first in all decisions. This party will not be based on hatred of fear of aliens and offworlders, but the simple reality that Sivad is ours, and must hold the interests and safety of its native-born before all others. Our party platform will be published shortly. We welcome your votes, and seek to represent all native-born human Sivadians."

Moncrief to Hang! Edit
Posted By: Aeolus Article: MAY06-5 Reported To: SBS Reported On: Sivad Reported At: Sat May 13 17:00:21 3006
/Grand Enaj, Sivad/ After several weeks of deliberations, the jury of twelve Sivadians impaneled in the high treason trial of former First Councillor Paul Moncrief have returned a verdict of guilty on all charges, including rebellion against King Richard.The Moncrief trial stems from his attempt, now nearly two years old, to overthrow the Monarchy and replace it with the "People's Republic of Sivad." Moncrief managed to destroy Isherwood House and the Council Building in a specialist uprising that was arranged in collusion with another disgraced former First Councillor, Wallace Marbury. Moncrief was captured almost a year ago, and his trial in the Royal Courts of Justice has lasted nearly six months.Sivadian law, as amended by the Capital Punishment Restoration Act, mandates hanging for high treason, and this sentence was duly pronounced by Mr. Justice Julius Latimer in the Court of the Second Circle, who, after putting on his black highwayman's cap over his wig, ordered that Moncrief be "hanged by the neck until he is dead." Moncrief, however, has several appeals remaining, including the the Council of Peers. The Home Office may also suggest clemency to King Richard, under the royal perogative of mercy.Moncrief has been returned to HMP Whistling Shrub in the Northern Expanse, while his lawyers have vowed to see his sentence overturned./Neville McNamara, SBS/

/Grand Enaj, Sivad/ Vice-Admiral John P. Lind, Surgeon-General of Sivad and head of the uniformed Public Health Service, has announced that he will return to active service in the Royal Navy, rather than remain as leader of the Sivadian medical establishment.Lind, who was appointed Surgeon-General by Minister for Health Geoffrey Cruyer during the Advanced Thul Resequencing Virus emergency, has been a career member of the Royal Naval Service, and was temporarily assigned to the PHS during the crisis. He has now decided to resign his position as Surgeon-General to continue in the military. "I am, and always have been, a Navy doctor." Lind said in a brief prepared statement announcing his departure, "And while many would consider my appointment the capstone of a career, it was, for me, always a temporary assignment."The only man currently on active service to hold both the Franklin Cross and the civilian Franklin Medal, Lind will return to his previous rank of Surgeon-Commander. However, as Flag Officers remain on the active list for live, Lind will remain subject to recall to the PHS in the event of a future emergency. The Admiralty has announced that he has accepted a position as Ship's Surgeon aboard the HMS Regreb Bay. Rear Admiral Lynn Graysome, M.D., the Deputy Surgeon-General, will serve as head of the PHS until a permanent replacement is appointed./Neville McNamara, SBS/
White Paper Critical of RNS Edit
Posted By: Aeolus Article: MAY06-7 Reported To: SBS Reported On: Sivad Reported At: Tue May 16 17:52:49 3006
/Grand Enaj, Sivad/ The Royal Naval Service is undermanned an ill-equipped to defend Sivad and her colonies, an Admiralty white paper has determined.The white paper, which looked at the number of ships and marines available to the Royal Navy and determined that while in absolute strength they were quite powerful, spread in penny packets throughout several star systems and deep space, resources might not be able to meet an attack such as that during the Battle of Sivad. The study found that the Royal Marines, which have a peace time force of less than one hundred thousand, lack the wherewithal for a protracted ground battle. Moreover, while the fleet has increased its frigate and destroyer strength, capital ship losses have not yet been replaced, leaving the Navy with only thirty per cent more capital ship tonnage than the Homeland Navy at its peak prior to the Isherwood Restoration.The white paper has suggested that the government accelerate the construction of shipyards over Waldheim and Portmeirion to increase capacity, though the latter is problematic because of the absence of available manpower. It also suggested colonial reserves be organized, and that the government consider the re-establishment of the Sivadian Army, which had been demobilised in 2897.First Councillor Sir Fredrick Chamberlain has said that the government will "consider the suggestions, though given the great expense involved, some concessions to financial realities will be necessary." He also said that the Kingdom has the utmost faith in the Royal Navy's ability to defend the realm./Neville McNamara, SBS/

Midsystem, Ungstir --The CFF Trakral made an appearance once again tonight, performing a lightning-quick attack against the main trade lanes around Ungstir. After destroying the Caravan-class vessel IND Tor'ka, the Ungstir militia's fighter units responded to the scene and managed to force the ship to retreat, losing only one of their number. Ungstiri officials remained tight-lipped aside from sending a scathing rebuke directed at the captain of the Trakral, most of which is not able to be reprinted.Meanwhile, sources tell INN that the GMF Athena was involved in the attack, suffering minor damage in return for it's attempt to save the lives of the Tor'ka's crew. It is not apparent as of yet whether OATO is planning on responding to this renewed Nall threat.--INN

Outpost offices have been established on the largely uninhabited planet and on other worlds. "Our slogan is 'Bringing Worlds Together,' and we're really beginning to do just that," says spokesperson Daniel Scherman. "We're keeping with late founder and CEO Charles Ellis's vision of sharing the beauty of New Luna with the galaxy while maintaining and expanding our other operations." The company seems to have recovered from the industrial debacle on New Luna earlier this year that engulfed an entire island in flames. In the last eight months Yggdrasil has absorbed a few small firms into its already diverse manifold, making it a more viable competitor with larger established companies.

Deep Space - Earlier this evening, the crew of the superfreighter 'HMS Behemoth' had a near-death experience as they narrowly escaped death after suffering an attack by the CFF Trakral. The vessel was carrying supplies destined for an RNS refueling outpost on the fringes of Sivadian space when it was apparently attacked by the Nall vessel.Although a patrol frigate was responding to the call for assistance, it was too late, and was only able to pick up survivors."They pretty much left us alone once we abandoned the ship, although the sensors on the lifeboat did not allow me to see any details of what happened after we launched." the Captain, Mr. Newton Flavis, said to INN after he was rescued.
