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 andĀ  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 untilĀ  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.

Poseidon Abandoned, CAG Stiglitz is MIA

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 27, 2008

This is without a doubt the saddest report I have ever written for the News.

In a surprisingly vicious attack that included at least 3 basestars, Cylons returned to retake the planet Poseidon with a vengeance. Pilots and Marines fought valiantly to hold our position, but the planet was not worth additional casualties and Admiral Nephilim ordered an FTL to remove the fleet from danger.

A tragic loss was revealed by President Halberd, who told me haltingly, with tears rolling down her face, that Major Heidi Stiglitz is missing in action. The President explained that the CAG was engaged by Cylons while flying the Stealth Star and went down over the planet. Rescuers determined that her beacon was not active or had been destroyed in the crash, and orders were given from Pacifica to abandon the search. “I consider her one of my dearest friends. We will do everything we can to go back and find her,” President Halberd said. “I cannot accept that one of the most heroic women who ever lived is missing.”

Admiral Nephilim, who is also one of Major Stiglitz’ closest friends, was forced to order the FTL jump away from the area. She is in seclusion and has issued no statements.

Major Stiglitz is a proud citizen of Aerelon. She lost her husband Hannes and daughters Thea and Tessa in a vicious slaughter of their family farm just days before a mission from Pacifica arrived to retrieve them.
