Quorum of 12 Representative Liana Inshan Missing

Posted by Fleet News Service on March 31, 2008

The following report was turned into authorities today, and this reporter was able to see a copy of it.

I was scheduled to meet with Representative Inshan in her quarters on the Virgon Rising to discuss her proposals related to food distributions on 03292008 at 0900SLT. When I went to her room, the door was unlocked. I went in and found the room was in disarray and Liana was not there. Her identity cards and personal items were still in the room.

Contact was made with the Captain who checked the ship log and told me that there was no departure record. She should still have been aboard. The Captain asked the crew members to look for her but were unable to locate her anywhere on the ship.

I thought maybe she had just been called away until I heard of the attack on Vice President Vielle. When I heard of this I realized there could be more to it and that this needed to be reported.

Casiopeia Catteneo
Representative of Canceron

If anyone knows the whereabouts of Representative Inshan, please contact Captain Serapis immediately.

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.
