In the last few days things have been accelerating.
One should be blind for not having seen it.
Even our beloved Pravnet hastened to take hold of the hype created around the event, while she takes all her time to publish other things.
A media that claims to be objective should not focus some news and almost relegate other informations to the forgetfulness of history.
But let us pass. We know, here, and you, too, dear readers, that Pravnet is a propaganda tool.
On the 25th of June, one day before the event the Pravnet was setting up to turn our eyes elsewhere, two movements were publicly announced without anyone noticing it :
The first one acts as a follow-up to the protest movement against Wreaken Construction of which we spoke in our last article.
The demand has widened.
The Ghosts of Col 70 are calling on Sirius to release the technology that the mega-corp acquired from MetaDrive Inc. last year, and continues to call for the end of the permit which prevents the lambda pilots that we are from going to Col 70 Sector.
However, with regard to the most recent elements, this latter claim is increasingly legitimate.
On the other hand, the Singularity movement is posing an ultimatum to the Federation, asking it to cease keeping Pr Palin under house arrest, and also to withdraw all its armed forces from the Maia system.
The Onionhead/le Piaf : Hi, Cmdr Jellicoe. Its a real pleasure and an honnour to have you here today.
Cmdr Jellicoe : Good morning Commander and thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak to the galaxy at large
TOP : Could you remind our readers of the current situation of Pr Palin, and what consequences this might have in managing the Thargoid “crisis”?
Cmdr Jellicoe : Professor Palin is humanity’s preeminent, arguably only, researcher into the Alien mysteries. For the last few months there has been a Federation capital ship and its attendant battlegroup stationed above Palins research base, now until recently it was possible to believe that they were there with Palins approval or even at his request to provide protection for his work but the events surrounding his recent appeal for data and the subsequent theft of that data demonstrates clearly that the Federation have effectively placed the Professor under house arrest. Palins work is of vital interest to all of us. If we are to be able to communicate with the Thargoids it is most likely Professor Palin who will develop the technology to allow us do so and if we are forced to fight then his research will be vital in developing the defence systems and weaponry we will need to give us a chance. Maia is an independent system, the Federation have no jurisdiction there and we demand that they cease their interference with Professor Palins work.
TOP : So for you, the knowledge that Professor Palin has accumulated during these studies must be made public?
Cmdr Jellicoe : We’re not saying that it must be made public, obviously I would very much like to know what the Professor has learned but that is not my decision to make, what we are saying is that the Professor should be allowed to continue with his work without interference from any other party be they Federation, Empire, Alliance or independent, this is not about learning what Palin knows but restoring his freedom to pursue his work unmolested.
TOP : I understand well the nuance, but are not you afraid that once they are in the public domain, they can serve personal interests?
Cmdr Jellicoe : As I say I’m not demanding any data be made public, only that the Professor be free to continue his work for the benefit of us all but as a broader point. Do you trust Hudson, or Lavigny-Duval or Mahon to decide what information you and I are fit to learn? The Professor is a man I know well and who I’m honoured to call a good friend, his academic and personal integrity are beyond question I trust him much more than anyone else to make the decisions.
TOP : Recently, in our columns, we brought to our readers’ knowledge troubling facts. In particular, the fact that on the site of federal wrecks, only one communication relay had been found intact and in perfect working order, which issued a message indicating the return of the Thargoids, while one of the Farraguts found on site Issued a message that this convoy had been attacked by a fleet of unknown ships, without specifying the nature of the fleet. Now, Professor Palin had already informed the public that our visitors from elsewhere were indeed Thargoids. It is safe to assume that, unless they were cut off from the world a little too long, the Admirals aboard the Farraguts had this knowledge in mind when they wrote the message that the wreck emitted in a loop. Elements of such a troubling nature were brought to our knowledge during the game of track leading to the discovery of the 5 planetary Thargoids sites. I know you were at the forefront of these discoveries because the very first site was discovered by Cmdr Lexi Meise, a member of the Children of Raxxla just like you. These elements evoke the intervention of a private armed force which tried to destroy the information that led Cmdr Lexi Meise to this discovery. Can you tell us a little bit more?
Cmdr Jellicoe : There is indeed some form of military force active in the Pleiades that does not appear to be a formal part of the Federation or Imperial militaries. We have found evidence of their work in the destruction of the peaceful survey ships Pandora and Victoria’s song and the disappearance (we suspect murder) of staff at a civilian communications hub and a secret military establishment has also been found in the area which contains compelling evidence that it was the base for the attacks on the Pandora and Victoria’s Song as well as Communications Hub Zeta (the communication hub in Electra system that led to the first planetary Alien site; ED), We do not yet know who this organisation is and who (if anyone) they answer to, but the fact that there is a powerful, organised and well equipped force in the Pleiades who will willingly commit acts of mass murder against civilian targets should worry us all. We are committed to uncovering the truth about this organisation and bringing them to justice.
TOP : All this is really starting to get interesting. Someone would have us believe that the target of the Thargoids was exclusively federal, and on the other hand, someone would try to destroy everything that might lead us to another conclusion, quite awkwardly, A private army so that we can not go up to him, is that right?
Cmdr Jellicoe : We don’t know the Thargoids motivations, and we know effectively nothing about their psychology or outlook on the galaxy and almost nothing at all about any contacts the human race might have had with them in the past. If they have been observing us for any length of time it may well be that they are well aware of our internal divisions and may have indeed specifically targeted the Federation for reasons unknown, or it may just be that the Federation as the human power most vigorously expanding into the Pleiades region have simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time. I think though we should also remember that there have been persistent rumours of the destruction of an Imperial capital ship by unknown causes in Facece itself.
TOP : So, the Singularity movement takes a color, how to say …, all singular, for a few days?
Cmdr Jellicoe : Singularity has no allegiance to any faction or power, it is a movement of independent pilots who are aware that the galactic community is being lied to by our rulers, that things are being hidden from us and that efforts to shine some light on those secrets and lies, or efforts to delve into the mysteries of our galaxy are being blocked and hindered by those in positions of power. We do not believe that this is the fault of The Federation, Empire or Alliance rather we believe there is another group standing behind them, unseen but extremely powerful directing our fate as a species, we would be free to chart our own destiny.
TOP : An interesting discovery was also made on site No. 5. Once in the central chamber, and after activating the mechanism to make appear what looks like a stellar map, it was possible to scan an unknown device. The latter then emitted a characteristic sound series resembling that of the Unknown Probes. Logically, a spectral analysis was applied to it and led to a schema of the same format as that hidden in the “code” of the Unknown Probes. Once this pattern was cleared, it clearly revealed elements related to Merope, and to another system. The Canonn Interstellar Research Group as well as all the other scientific organizations are very active right now in trying to determine what the system is. Some hypotheses speak of the system Col 70 Sector FY-N C21-3 (during the time we wrote this, Canonn clearly stated that it was this system)! This hypothesis is unverifiable for the simple reason that it is inaccessible, blocked by the permit that attempts to blow up The Ghost of Col 70.
If this hypothesis were true then:
“The accident” on the secret site of Wreaken Construction & Mining in the same area,
The attack on the federal vessels transporting in “safe place” the data stolen to Pr Palin,
Pr Palin under house arrest,
The strong presence of the Feds at Maia (Maia is neighbor to Merope),
The fact that the Empire also wanted to be there,
The fact that it is compulsory to obtain access to Marco Quent by obtaining the permi for the Sirius system to be invited to meet Professor Palin,
And finaly, the fact that the patterns decrypted during the sounds emitted by the unknown apparatus of the Thargoid site No. 5 designate Merope and Col 70 Sector FY-N C21-3,
All these elements could have a link.
What do you think ?
Cmdr Jellicoe : There may very well be a link, I strongly suspect that whatever is happening in Col 70 sector and Wreaken’s determination to keep it secret despite huge cost to their business from Dr Ashcroft and Co’s actions must mean that it is connected but beyond that who knows? It could be that we are seeing connections that aren’ there, one must keep an open mind. In the end I’m not a scientist or a detective I’m just a spaceship captain.
TOP : Thank you for your time Cmdr.
