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.

Tanya Halberd
President

Representative Inshan Found Dead, Hand Of Apollo Issues Demands

Posted by Fleet News Service on April 2, 2008

Inshan Found DeadA mysterious box was found on Celestra which purported to be from the Hand of Apollo. It suggested that the President check the Quorum Chamber for a list of demands.

A number of security personnel were subsequently summoned to the Quorum Room on 7th Heaven. Upon arriving, the body of Quorum of 12 Representative Liana Inshan was found with a note pinned to her body.

The note  was seemingly from the terrorist group calling itself “The Hand of Apollo.” The note listed a number of demands listed below exactly as received:

  1. The Imediate “spacing” of all known Cylon humanoids in the the fleet.
  2. The Quarantine of all Hybrid children.
  3. The Imediate resignation of the Admiral.
  4. More Food for the civilians.
  5. Immunity from any prosecution for any past crimes.

Representative Inshan’s body was taken to Pacifica for a forensic autopsy.

President Halberd declined to comment but said she would be issuing a statement very soon.

Assassination Attempt on Vice Presidents Life!

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 30, 2008

Saturday, a day of mourning for our recently lost Pacifica hero, Heidi Stiglitz, was marred by violence by a lone assassin against the the Vice President of the Colonial Fleet, Vicky Vielle.

What started out as a fitting time of tribute and  heartfelt words about the recently lost pillar of the fleet, turned into violence and mayhem.
As the last few eulogizers were speaking, shots rang out and the Vice President dropped. On lookers were confused as to what had just occurred, looking at each other in silence momentarily until  the realization set in. Weapons we drawn by all the warriors in attendance. Quick orders to seal the Dome were to late, as it appeared that the perpetrator was later reported as being observed running from the scene.

All fleet officers were quickly surround by body guards and sequestered. Many individuals were rounded up and questioned. At this time, an individual is in custody. The suspect’s name has not been released.

The group calling themselves the Hand of Apollo has taken responsiblity. Before the shots were fired, someone yelled, “You have broken and betrayed the Truce and the Covenent now you have been Judged now feel the wrath of the Hand of Apollo”.

This reporter is still shaken by the events. I will follow with more updates as the investigation continues.
