Posted By: Aeolus Article: SEPT05-1 Reported To: SBS Reported On: Sivad Reported At: Sat Sep 03 15:22:20 3005
(Enaj, Sivad) - A paper to be published in Thursday's issue of The Scalpel says that Regisan may have been responsible for as many as three thousand deaths on Sivad, and perhaps more.Regisan was officially permanently removed from the market at a press conference Wednesday evening. The drug, which was used to treat Isherwood syndrome, is now known to be linked with potentially deadly liver disease.The paper was authored by two University of Enaj professors after a study conducted in October 3004. The Department of Health has started an internal investigation -- to be led by Surgeon-General John Lind -- to determine how Regisan was approved.The Drug Safety Authority is urging anyone who took Regisan to be tested for liver disease. Anyone who is still taking Regisan should immediately stop and consult their physician.(OOC: Full report: http://tinyurl.com/bvvkt)

TASK MATRIX CENTRAL, PHYRRIA - For the first time in recent memory, the Overmind - the over-arching consciousness that rules the mechanoid inhabitants of Phyrria - has taken the initiative in dealing with the threat posed by the murderous Vollistan Light Singer, Volari.In a statement transmitted to all news outlets throughout the galaxy via Phyrrian operatives, the Overmind said: "All data gathered and all calculations during the past three months lead us to the inescapable conclusion that the Strategic Retreat is most likely cloaked, hidden somewhere in the Ungstir system. Given the Light Singer's penchant for showmanship and flamboyance, it only increases the likelihood that he and his compatriots have chosen Ungstir itself."The Overmind expected citizens of Ungstir to act against Volari, but indicated that it would "take no chances on the clumsy inefficiency of sentient organics."The Overmind said elements of a new "Decimator Fleet" would be dispatched to Ungstir tonight to assist in scouring for the villain and his cronies.

RESILIENCE, UNGSTIR - Less than 24 hours after it was stolen by a crew of cloak-suited Nall warriors, the ISS Orphic returned to Ungstir.Witnesses who were held hostage aboard the vessel during the theft reported that Ian Penumbra's massive starship was apparently flown to some location for use as a refueling station by the nefarious Vollistan Light Singer, Volari, and his renegade Strategic Retreat freighter.After making a rendezvous with Volari, the Nall reportedly boarded the Strategic Retreat and the Orphic was allowed to fall back into the control of Penumbra's crew.

BREAKING NEWS: Volari near Phyrria? Edit
Posted By: Brody Article: SEPT05-7 Reported To: INN Reported On: Ungstir Reported At: Sun Sep 11 19:16:43 3005
RESILIENCE, UNGSTIR - Data acquired by the crew of the GMF Athena suggests that the Strategic Retreat, the ship used by the nefarious Vollistan Light Singer Volari, was bound for Phyrria after refueling aboard the stolen ISS Orphic. The data indicates the Retreat, which is cloak-capable, is carrying a Coreseeker missile in one cargo hold. Given the Phyrrians' role in helping secure an end to the Advanced Thul Resequencing Virus, it's no large leap of logic to consider Volari's intentions. Any ships capable of rendering aid should proceed at once toward Phyrria.
PHYRRIA BOMBED - ATTACK SHIP DESTROYED Edit
Posted By: Brody Article: SEPT05-8 Reported To: INN Reported On: Phyrria Reported At: Sun Sep 11 21:51:06 3005
TASK MATRIX CENTRAL, PHYRRIA - In a statement issued this evening by the Overmind on Phyrria, it was reported that a Coreseeker missile was fired from the Strategic Retreat at the planet's capital city, Task Matrix Central. Salvos from Phyrrian warships knocked the missile off a direct penetration trajectory, but the explosion still wrecked the city and nearly destroyed the Overmind.The Athena and the Wolfsbane, along with fighter elements of the Phyrrian Decimator Fleet, attacked the Strategic Retreat, damaged its cloaking device and ultimately destroyed the vessel that has been used for months by Volari to terrorize the known worlds.Sensor scans show fifteen dead Nall and a single dead Demarian amidst the wreckage of the ship, but no sign of a Vollistan Light Singer. However, an energy signature on the bridge just after the first salvos hit the Retreat could indicate someone teleporting off the vessel.The Overmind has ordered all "sentient organics" to refrain from entering Phyrrian sovereign space. Violators will be eradicated.
