Fleet Military Defends Poseidon, Tylium Flows

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 17, 2008

The fierce defense of the planet called Poseidon continues. The Cylons have fought bitterly to retake the planet, but brave pilots and marines have held the planet in spite of fiersome odds.

There have been some setbacks and some tense moments, and several times the Cylons have forced retreats back to the fleet. Under the command of Major Onyx Syakumi, Colonials have retaken the planet several times. There have been many casualties, but the need for tylium is worth the risk, Admiral Nephilim is reported as saying.

Meanwhile, no word yet on the on-going investigation into the gruesome murder of the Jonah Whelan family. Authorities thus far are refusing to comment.

Probable Assassination of Miners on Poseidon

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 13, 2008

The tragic murders of the Whelans appears to have been an assassination and a powerplay by a new power broker who has made their move within the Syndicate.  We expect more on this developing story soon.

Head of the Miners Guild Found Dead

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 10, 2008

Early this morning, miners reporting for the early shift on the planet Poseidon they found what can only be defined as a macabre scene. The body of one Jonah Whelan, who was at one time the head of the mining Guild on the Tylium Queen, was found badly tortured and mutilated, crucified on one of the tylium mining machine’s cross braces in the depths of the mine.

A second body, identified by friends as his wife, Elia Whelan was found lying face down in the pool in 7th Heaven. She was killed by a single shot to the back of her head. OPSEC and Security from 7th Heaven and Tylium Queen were called to the two grisly scenes. Both bodies were transported to the morgue for autopsy.
Fleet records show that the couple had a son. A search was initiated but investigations have concluded him missing and presumed dead.

Quorum of 12 Meets, Discusses Critical Issues

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 8, 2008

In a productive meeting today in the Quorum Room on 7th Heaven, Representatives discussed a number of issues ranging from mining on Poseidon to selection of a replacement for recently deceased Quorum Representive Conell Dagger.

Colony Representative Attended
Aerelon Paxan Freck Yes
Aquaria Dollwife Pink Yes
Canceron Casiopeia Catteneo Yes
Caprica Bigggy Smalls No
Gemenon Erianthe Elvehjem No
Leonis Ronon Maximus Yes
Libris Cathiee McMillan Yes
Picon Conell Dagger Deceased
Sagittaron Gibley Goldblatt Yes
Scorpia Saamia Mahana No
Tauron Eyea Aya Yes
Virgon Liana Inshan Yes

Also in attendance were President Halberd, Vice President Vicky Vielle, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Stacia Zabeleta.

The meeting began by appointing the senior member, Gibley Goldblatt of Sagittaron, as the moderator. Following that, a long list of issues was raised by the recently ill and still recovering Virgon Representative Liana Inshan, who spoke from a wheelchair.

The first issue raised by Representative Inshan was whether to send 3 Quorum of 12 Representatives to the planet Poseidon to visit with citizens and assess the situation. The motion passed.

The second issue was concern for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among civilians, and the matter was deferred to Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. Zabeleta. Likewise, the third issue of adult education to promote skills of civilians was also referred to the Executive Branch and Secretary of Education Andi Whiteberry.

The fourth issue raised by Virgon Representative Inshan concerned prisoner’s rights. This is a concern of hers since she has personally experienced a run-in with the judicial system recently. President Halberd briefly described the circumstances of the arrest, as related here in the news, stating that charges were dropped since the problem was related to a medical condition. The President also referred to legislation from the previous session of the Quorum to protect citizen’s rights. Other representatives did not share Representative Inshan’s concerns and the matter was dropped.

The fifth issue raised by Representative Inshan was whether for the good of the fleet people should be encouraged to have children. The discussion was found to be rather divisive and was deferred to a later date.

Issue six was the proposal to create emergency bulkheads to protect shuttle bays during an attack. This was determined to be a military matter and out of scope for a Quorum discussion.

Issue seven suggested that there is a shortage of civilian medical personnel and resources, and that an office be created to manage the situation. A motion carried to ask for the Cabinet to establish a medical control and training center.

At this point a brief discussion came up of what to do about the Picon seat in the Quorum of 12 vacated by the death of Conell Dagger. It was decided that the citizens of Picon would be encouraged to find another representative.

After this the meeting was adjourned, with participants thanking those who helped with the meeting.

Fleet Sweep for Transponders Detects 7 So Far

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 5, 2008

Secretary of Science Doctor Jiminy developed a detector for Cylon transponders with the help of one of the Cylon defectors. Using the device, Tylum Queen, Celestra and 7th Heaven were swept and two transponders per ship were located for a total of six. In a very troubling development, a seventh transponder was found on Pacifica, too.

Even though Pacifica was not occupied by Cylons during the fleet separation of recent weeks, a sweep made of the battlestar revealed one transponder. When asked how a transponder could have been planted on Pacifica, Admiral Nephilim replied, “no comment.”

“This is both very troubling and very reassuring,” said President Halberd. “We found the devices and disabled them. I am anxious to finish the sweep of the rest of the fleet before we have to jump again. We need to be alert.”

Cabinet Member Jiminy has agreed to distribute the new transponder detectors to Marine and OPSEC units.

Doctor Jiminy shows a Cylon transponder

The transponders are described as white ovals about the size of your hand. If you see one, please contact the bomb squad on Pacifica immediately, and do not touch or move the devices.

Quorum Representative Liana Inshan Arrested, Then Released

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 4, 2008

In a bizarre incident in Pacifica Sick Bay, Quorum of 12 Representative Liana Inshan began acting very strangely. Several military officers attempted to restrain her, and she attacked one in the process. She was promptly taken to the brig on Pacifica.

Admiral Nephilim, President Halberd, and Captain Serapis were summoned to the brig, where they listened to the descriptions of the situation, and also some confusing reports about Ms. Inshan’s medical condition. President Halberd decided to move her to River Delta because it was a civilian judicial matter, and to have the charges reviewed by Attorney General Derin Swenson.

Mr. Swenson decided to drop the charges when Dr. Felicia Huygens explained that a brain tumor was causing Representative Inshan’s behavior. Ms. Inshan was immediately released and sent to the clinic on 7th Heaven for surgery, where the tumor was removed.

We all hope that Ms. Inshan recovers quickly!

Captain LizzyD Vendetta Dead?

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 3, 2008

I was quite happy to meet up with Captain Serapis today in the landing bay of the Celesta…he was looking well after his ordeal aboard the Cylon Basestar.  I commented how nice and happy we were all to have him home safe….especially with Cpt. Weiland wounded and Cpt. Vendetta missing.  It was then that his face turned white and his eyes clouded as if recalling an image.  I asked if things were ok….

“LizzyD..oh no…no…  She was on the base star.   I was in my cell.  I heard her voice.”

Captain Serapis was obviously distraut by the sudden realization.  I pressed him and he seemed to calm down, “She was there? She was a prisoner?”  He looked at me and said, “Yes. I was in my cell. Alone. I had been interrogated..I think .. drugged..I heard shouting down the hall. The voice…I knew it..couldn’t place it. Paxan wasn’t in her cell…thought it must be her.”  Two Centurions were dragging her and she was resisting.  It was hard to see but it must have been her.  She looked injured.  I couldn’t place the voice. It was so far away.  But now I know. It was Captain Vendetta.  The frackers killed her”.

I asked him where they were taking her…”I don’t know.I only saw her her fighting with them.  She was yelling too.  Something about never telling them where they are and that the people will get thier payback….I figure she was talking either about the children or the weapons.  Well actually she must have been talking abut the weapons.”

“What did they do with her?”, I asked him.  His expression turned solomn, “I don’t know. I blacked out.  Drugs.  I thought it was a nightmare. The drugs.  It didn’t seem real.  I never saw her again. Lizzy….”

Captain Vendetta was not rescued and is not anywhere in the fleet…we can only assume she was one of many who lost thier lives to the Cylons in these last few horrific weeks.  Our prayers to the Lords of Kobol go out to them all and the ones close them.

In a related note…Cobb Comption the 7th Heaven Security Officer was promoted to Executive Officer and Makal Krogstad is the new Captain of the Tylium Queen.  Note Cpt. Krogstad was assigned the position before this news of Cpt. Vendetta came to light.

Pacifica Returns, Routes Cylons, Saves Fleet!

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 2, 2008

Pacifica and River Delta made a bold return, attacking and destroying the Cylon Basestar just as citizens on TQ were afraid they would not be able to hold out against more Cylon assaults.

The fleet was liberated from captivity by our brave military pilots, infantry and OPSEC teams, who triumphantly returned to drive away the monsters.

In a huge battle that integrated all of our forces from Marines, OPSEC, Viper pilots and Raptor pilots, Cylons were at last driven back. There were many casualties, and reports are not yet available, but rumor has it that Pacifica Sick Bay is full of wounded fighters.

After the Basestar was neutralized, OPSEC teams swept the fleet for Cylons, freeing civilians and accepting the tearful gratitude of people who had feared for their lives daily for far too long.

When the fleet was separated several weeks ago, civilians were captured and rounded up by the Cylons on 7th Heaven. The desperate citizens managed to secure some weapons and escape to the Tylium Queen. There, led by Cobb Compton and Ensign Serp Auer, brave citizens who were unfamiliar with weaponry or explosives managed to hold the Cylons off for nearly a week. Many died in the siege.

Fierce resistance was encountered on the Conneva, where a large number of Centurians made a stand in the engine room. An entire team of our people was lost in the sweep of the ship, and Pacifica fired on the ship to eliminate the threat, then sent a second team to search for survivors. None of the 18 registered residents of Conneva were found, and only 3 bodies were recovered. The ship was scuttled. It is presumed that the Centurions had killed all citizens before Pacifica arrived.

Admiral Angelica Nephilim, known for being a soldier of few words, was reached while still coordinating the aftermath of the attack. “It was a hard fought battle, but failure was not in our lexicon. I am proud of the fighting soldiers of Pacifica,” she said before turning away to speak to members of her command.

Colonial President Tanya Halberd expressed great sadness when told of the many civilian deaths, including Quorum Representative Conell Dagger, who died with many others defending the families on the Tylium Queen. President Halberd spoke haltingly over the wireless, expressing both joy and grief as she explained that every single member of the Pacifica crew was single-mindedly gutwrenched trying ready the Pacifica to return as soon as possible. She said she would never be able to fully express the relief she felt when OPSEC teams reported that the civilian ships were secured, one by one. She said she wanted to personally thank every one in the fleet who risked their lives to drive out the menace.

Work commenced immediately to repair the sabotaged FTL drives on the civilian fleet ships. It was the failure of those drives that caused the fleet to get separated initially. Captain Starbuckk Serapis coordinated the effort, called on all available engineers to assist, and was able to get the whole fleet to jump away from the cursed place in a fairly short time.

Many tears of joy and sadness will be shared tonight. So say we all!!!

Broadcast Believed Received from Pacifica

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 1, 2008

Ensign Serp Auer made contact with a Raptor from Pacifica today. I interviewed him and transcribed his remarkable account of the event.

Sable Babii: What made you try to reach the Pacifica by wireless?
Serp Auer: It was something I had to try and do. Luckily there was someone out there to listen. Honestly the message was over-due in attempt but this as my first chance to try and remodulate comms gear.
Sable Babii: Had you tried before or did you get a response your first time?
Serp Auer: The only attempt I made today was the lucky one. I wasnt to sure if the transmitter would work it was so badly shotup when I cobbled it back together.
Sable Babii: That’s amazing. What did you tell Pacifica, and what response did you get back?
Serp Auer: I told them of our situation and that we will hold out no matter what.
Sable Babii: Good. What did they say?
Serp Auer: Since they didn’t know if it was fully secure the raptor pilot only clicked their wireless on and off several times to indicate that they had recieved my transmission. I caught sight of the bird and to say this it was one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen as of late before it FTL’ed out
Sable Babii: Incredible. Thanks for relaying that. Please keep us posted if you have any more contact, ok?
Serp Auer: Of course.

There you have it, folks. Ensign Auer spotted a recon raptor from Pacifica. Thank the gods this all may soon be over! Don’t tell the Cylons!

Siege Continues, Civilians Hold Off Cylons

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 29, 2008

Our brave citizens have managed to hold off the Cylons, who have attacked the Tylium Queen in wave after wave of assaults. Quorum Member Conell Dagger was killed in the fighting.

Bravely holding their own in shifts and led by Serp Auer and Cobb Compton, the inexperienced citizens struggled against the determined tin men. Auer and Cobb were frustrated at times by undisciplined civilians, including this reporter, who were unaccustomed to following orders.

We knew we were desperate when even our anti-violence minded Oracle, Eyea Aya, saw our fear and reluctantly took up arms herself saying, “I guess it is ok to kill a robot, isn’t it?”

On a very sad note, Tylium Queen XO and Quorum of 12 Representative Conell Dagger died in the siege. Services were held between attacks, with praises from all in attendance. It was very sad for everyone.

We don’t know how long we can hold this up, or when if ever the Pacifica will return. We do what we can hour by hour as the siege continues. We pray they will come back to us soon. Rumors have been circulating that garbled messages have been received saying that they are searching for us. There seems to be no way to confirm these rumors, however.

Civilians Retreat to the Tylium Queen

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 28, 2008

In a dramatic and desperate move, civilians temporarily escaped from the Cylons when they detonated charges found in a weapons cache on the Tylium Queen.

The battered civilians held captive on the luxury liner, 7th Heaven, suddenly used explosives and guns smuggled in, surprising their captors. They repulsed the Cylons and made their way to the shabby mine ship known as the Tylium Queen. They established defenses and prepared for a long siege in the hopes of saving the children from the monsters, possibly saving many lives.

Captain Weiland and Cobb Compton, Chief of Security on 7th Heaven, the only leadership still known to be alive, lead the military-style effort to hold the Cylons back. Compton planned and managed the details of the successful escape.

All of those aboard the TQ during wave after wave of Cylon attacks were clearly afraid. They hugged each other, swore to fight bravely, shared tears and encouraged each other. Many expressed faith that the heart of our family, the troops on Pacifica, will return to us before the Cylons can destroy us all.

Cylons Round Up Civilians in Dome

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 25, 2008

The Cylons rounded up all civilians in the dome on the garden level of 7th Heaven. Their skinjob spokesperson is threatening to deprive us all of food until the children are turned over. The whereabouts of the children are still unknown to the Cylons.

There is no sign of Pacifica or River Delta, and it is starting to look like they are lost. The President and the cabinet are lost, as well. Starbuckk Serapis is captured by Cylons, LizzyD Vendetta is missing.

The highest ranking person in command at this time is Windy Weiland, who has asked for calm, saying somewhat cryptically that “we will choose our battles.” She also added, “anyone revealing the location of the kids will be decompressed in an airlock so slowly they’ll wish the Cylons had captured them.”

Dr. Innis Returned by Cylons

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 24, 2008

Dr. Shaheen Innis, who was captured by Cylons and taken somewhere with her newborn baby Leela, was inexplicably returned to the captured citizens of the fleet. Rumor has it that the Cylons were not interested in the baby, which is not a “hybrid” child.

In another strange set of happenings, captured Cylon defector Lauri Mayfair apparently escaped from Cylon captivity, was able to secure her husband, Ronon Maximus from the Tylium Queen, and they both left for parts unknown in a heavy raider. Maximus is said to have left a note for Cathiee McMillan, but this reporter has been unable to determine what it said.

Meanwhile, civilians are being held captive on 7th Heaven by Centurions, led by Captain Wendy Weiland. No one knows the whereabouts of Pacifica or River Delta, or if our brave military are even alive.

President Halberd and all of the members of her cabinet have been missing since the fleet was overrun, and all are feared dead.

Pacifica and River Delta Missing, Resistance Continues

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 21, 2008

Civilians are fighting the Cylons as best they can in sporadic outbreaks of resistance. We have no word on the whereabouts of Pacifica or River Delta.

The Cylons gave a demand that we turn over the children, Siri and Ares, and also Cylon skin job Lauri Mayfair. Their time limit of 24 hours has come and gone, and our civilians are resisting valiantly against the evil creatures.

To date, they have not been able to locate the kids and none of their demands have been met. Fight on, brave people! So Say We All!!!!

Pacifica Separated, Cylons Overrun the Fleet

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 18, 2008

Fleet ships were separated in a desperate attempt to flee another attack. Civilians captured and desperately hoping for a rescue!

Faced with another brutal attack from the Cylons, Admiral Nephilim ordered an FTL. Shortly after, Pacifica and the River Delta successfully escaped, but the rest of the fleet stayed behind, their FTL drives crippled beyond repair.

Heavy raiders attacked the unprotected civilian fleet, rounding up civilians and herding them into Afterburners. This reporter has escaped capture, and has been able to communicate with a few of the captured citizens, which include several captains, Quorum members, and the Oracle.

Captain Weiland, badly wounded in last night’s raid, was captured again and says they are being treated well for some reason. She speculates that the raid last night was to sabotage the FTL drives.

This terrible turn of events couldn’t get any worse. Let’s just hope that Pacifica finds their way back to us soon!!!

Bizarre Cylon Attack Unexplained

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 18, 2008

A strange boarding of all ships by Cylons ended as soon as it began. Centurions inexplicably over-ran all fleet ships and then left.

Heavy raiders and Cylons came aboard many fleet ships in a massive raid last night, including the Celestra, 7th Heaven, Pacifica and Tylium Queen.

A number of citizens were wounded in the raid, including Captains Weiland and Serapis. Other wounded included Artemus Carthage, Cobb Compton, Makal Krogstad and several pilots.

In a strange turn of events, Windy Weiland learned that she was pregnant when her stomach wounds revealed that she had lost the baby.

No one has been able to explain why the Centurions attacked, or what they wanted on the ships, or why they left.

Fleet Fashion Show!

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 12, 2008

Tonight Afterburners was host to I believe the first such event of its kind….a fashion show!  People came from all corners of the fleet to watch the beautiful ladies show some of thier own and borrowed outfits.  I think the offduty marine and Pacifica deckhand had the most fun of the evening…especially when our own President Halberd appeared in something thin and blue.  If that made you curious….good!  You should have been here watching for yourself!

Innis Situation Resolved

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 7, 2008

Dr. Innis agreed, through her representative and husband, Anaxamander Barbosa, to a short period of jail time and an extension of her probation.

The charge of resisting arrest was dropped. Her probation period was reset and one additional month was added to bring it to a total of 4 months. She will spend 1 full week in confinement on River Delta. Upon her release her probation will start.

Upon conclusion of the proceedings, Judge Cat Foxchase remarked, ” I hope this matter can finally be put behind us. Ms. Innis faced very serious charges of treason in this matter and during this time of war, and in my opinion, a sentence of probation is very lienent. In this case, ,there will not be another chance.”

Attorney General Derin Swenson, who prosecuted the case, was not available for comment.

Liana Inshan, who represented Dr. Innis in the proceedings, said that she had been asked not to comment on the case by her clients.

Innis Surrenders

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 6, 2008

In a bizarre series of events, and the strangest manhunt in the history of the fleet, Dr. Shaheen Innis finally surrendered to custody nearly 24 hours after her arrest on probation charges was ordered.

Inside sources revealed today that Innis attempted to dictate lengthy terms of her incarceration to the prosecutor’s office prior to her surrendering. Sources say that her demands were flatly refused by Attorney General Derin Swenson. Swenson would not confirm or deny these allegations.

On another front, it was learned that numerous pleas were made by third-parties to various officials, including President Halberd, for either leniency or clemency. These attempts were also rebuffed, apparently. President Halberd was asked about this and the charges that she lied to Innis, and she directed all inquiries to the Attorney General’s office.

Sources in the fleet military revealed that Innis turned herself in this afternoon amid great fanfare. Officials were told that Innis had been handling a medical emergency at a fire in one of the outer fleet ships. None of the ship’s captains knew of any fires in the civilian fleet, however.

Innis is now awaiting a preliminary hearing before a judge. It is not known whether she will face charges of flight to avoid prosecution, obstruction of justice, or worse.
