I hope I’ve caught your attention with that title. While piracy has been a small trend throughout the Federation, recently it’s become a plague, especially on the outlying colonies. (You’ve probably heard of the FTU strike and the letter written by the Colonial Coalition). It’s time to examine this more closely, and see what might really be going on.
NYGEL II — An unknown ship, believed to be operated by pirates, transported away artifacts from Site 02 on Nygel II and damaged irreplaceable remains of ancient Iconian culture.
ESPERANCE — Federation President Nan Bacco has assured colonists that relief aid will be provided as the Federation Transport Union strike entered its third week, but those in the outer colonies are doubtful of the president and the Federation’s convictions.
You know it’s all anyone’s been talking about these past few weeks. Transport Union this, Colonial Coalition that. Honestly it’s enough to make this hardened reporter consider cancelling her weekly dinner parties. But why should we be talking not only about those malcontents on the frontier, but giving these lazy Transport Union workers the attention they crave? Well the short answer is, we shouldn’t.
