President Halberd Addresses the Fleet

Posted by Fleet News Service on April 2, 2008

For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
April 2, 2008

To All Fleet Citizens,

As you may know, I offered to meet with representatives of the terrorist group “The Hand of Apollo,” and publicly guaranteed their safety. I sincerely wished to discuss their position.

Since that offer was extended, they have attempted an assassination and have murdered a Quorum Representative.

Tonight, they asked to meet, and when the effort was made to ensure their safety, they responded by murdering Liana Inshan and by issuing a list of ridiculous demands.

I said that the offer would only be extended once, and I meant it. Their chance to be treated as legitimate is gone forever. From this point forward, members of this terrorist cult will be dealt with as barbarians. Anyone associating with them will be tried. If found guilty they will spaced in the slow airlock #3 on 7th Heaven. They will have several hours to think about their lives as the air slowly leaves the chamber.

If you are a member of the fleet and you have any contact with these people, you should be afraid. They are murderers. You should think very carefully what you are risking, and what it is worth for you to help them. If you want any chance of surviving this, you should contact Detective Byrna Frostbite” Pikajuna before she finds you, because if she finds you first, there will be no mercy.

    President Halberd,
    Once the Autopsy is final you will find that Representative Inshan is dead because she was a Cylon a “Skin Job”. We have Proven to you President Halberd that “the hand of Apollo” is out to remove all Cylons hiding in the fleet.

    You may think us a terrorist cult but we are out to make sure this fleet is safe from internal threat of the Skin Jobs.

    We shall live in the halls of Valor when we die.
    The Gods will Praise us for we are the ones protecting the human race from being tainted with Cylon half breeds.

    Meet our demands
    Or must we show you another Cylon! Hidden in the fleet!!!
    or shall we deal with the half breeds next.

    So Says
    “the Hand Of Apollo” the hand to freedom

  2. Fist of Ares said

    Bring it on!

  3. Concerned Citizens of the Fleet said

    To the Hand of Apollo:

    You have done nothing but threaten and kill people. What is to stop you from becoming like the Government you obviously distrust and hate?

    We hereby declare our Alliegence with President Halberd. We have taken it upon ourselves to protect the Humans entrusted to us from any threat to the survival of the Human Race. We will purged them from our Ships, Syndicate and Cylon – and this includes YOU, Hand of Apollo!

    You have done nothing but try to split the Fleet, leaving us open to attacks by the Cylons you claim to hate so much. You are helping them, and we think you know it.

    Therefore we consider you Traitors to the Human Race.

    We will NOT let the Cylons Win. We will NOT make the mistakes of the past. Step on our ships and face the consequences. Care to try to guess which ships we are?

    To the Hand of Apollo,

    You can threaten me all you want, you can presume to say you want what’s best for humanity, but you crossed the line when you attempted to take my daughter. Now you’ve made your first of many fatal mistakes.

    Know this, there is no where in this fleet you will be able to hide. The hunt is on for you animals. The investigators will find you all and the Fleet will remain safe for humanity’s future, a future you now threaten.

    One last thing, that chilling feeling you now have? Know that it’s the Frost is coming for you, Fear her, for she will find you…

  5. Hand Of Apollo said

    Barbosa,

    You’re a Cylon.

  6. Hand Of Apollo said

    So our sources on the pacifica and inside the presidents own Cabinet
    Have learned that one of her own Cabinet members was a friend to a cylon that was freed.
    This cylon took a Viper and fleed to space.

    Now it seems this same cabinet member is now in the pacifica Brig as well as her Husband.

    And the pilot that freed the cylon is possibly going to be shot for treason!!

    And you all say that “Hand of Apollo” is the issue.
    Look what this one cylon did.
    She duped them all.

    So says the
    Hand OF Apollo

  7. Shaheen Innis said

    How dare you Accuse my husband of such a thing!!! He is the only person I know for sure not to be a cylon as we grew up together. Get your facts straight before you do something you will regret

  8. LT Y. Laws said

    Hand of Apollo,

    If this were time of peace I would encourage Captain Barbosa to sue you for defamation.

    As it is a time of war, I warn you that the rules of engagement for members of the military are substantially unfavorable to your continued presence on the ship.

    I suppose now that I have one of those “toaster in the oven” tee shirts you’ll take the joke wrong and accuse me.

    Barbosa,

    You’re a Cylon.

    I assure you none of the members of the hand would accuse some one with out knowning absolutly sure, and when we do we will not advertise the fact we would just take care of the situation just like we did with the cylon rep from Virgon.

    it appears some on in the fleet is using the name of the hand to spread lies.

    our other statement was from us.

  10. Once again the rumors are defined by the facts.

    The mk.2 and mk.7 Vipers, both of which I’ve flown during the past year are short range air to air planes that are in fact not capable of fleeing anywhere.

    You see these two viper models are not capable of FTL jumps.

    As we are not currently in a planetary system, there is actually nowhere anybody can go in a viper.

    Since I’m grounded for health reasons, I’ve got a bit of time on my hand and can find no Vipers missing from inventory at this time. Check with the CAG for confirmation as Major Mechanique is in charge of this inventory and I merely ran a spot check out of curiosity.

    I’m also curious to know which pilot supposedly took the Viper, because all 8th Squadron pilots appear to be aboard the Pacifica last time I checked, which was several hours ago.

    So, dear hand of apollo, perhaps the next time you make up a lie, at least get the technical facts right. If anybody is going to flee anywhere they’ll need something FTL capable like a raptor.

    Once again the light of facts shines bright and dismisses th dark anonymous rumors of the fear mongers.

    This is getting a bit tedious and boring. Perhaps the hand of apollo people could join us on the port landing deck of Pacifica.

    If I happen to be watch commander at the time, I can assure them of a reception they will not soon forget. It will involve a marine and OPSEC “greeting” team, I think, if my knowledge of ships operating procedures are correct.
