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.

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.
