Luyten system is next on the card, folks. Don't expect a terribly warm welcome.
There is every indication that we are going to have a tough time of it when we hit the system. Aliens have a fairly effective blockade going on and it's up to us to ram our way through it and get to the Luyten outpost.
I have personally penned a request for the Guinterin Combine to be held responsible for the loss of the Ana Maria Alberghetti, and the Blue Horizon (only just discovered). As a TC preferred corporation they should have known in advance that they were putting all of those civilians at risk. Heads will roll if I can do anything about it, I assure you. It's ridiculous that these cruise-liners were running in light of the TC warnings.
An incident report concerning the cruise liner BLUE HORIZON should be available shortly. It has to clear a couple of channels, will probably take a few days. I expect you to read and understand this document as soon as it is made available.
Your quick action with the Twilight Purchase helped us avoid a complete tragedy and the families of the survivors will now doubt be wanting to name a few descendants after you. I pray that your skills aren't required for anything other than the slaughter of these aliens from now on.
I want to see bugs crushed from here to tomorrow, and I know you can give that to me. Keep it up in Luyten, people.
The public is now fully aware of the scope of the alien presence following the destruction of these ships. Luckily, we've had enough time to maneuver the fleet into position and set up containment plans for any possible panic. I'm relieved as hell that the press doesn't have the Twilight Purchase to hold up as an example of "Confederation Incompetence". The survivors have nothing but good things to say about you and about the trruth that "Confed Knows Best". It's quite a bit easier to debrief living witnesses than dead ones, and even easier for them to be vocally on our side. Once again, I'm proud of you.
Be strong, be prepared, stay alive.
