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.

Vielle and Halberd Call for Unity at Inauguration

Posted by Fleet News Service on February 1, 2008

Tanya Halberd and Vicky Vielle were inaugurated, with both calling for healing and fleet unity amid tight security. The well-attended event was followed by an elegant gala ball in Afterburners.

Election ombudsman Captain Starbuckk Serapis took the oath from Vice President Elect Vicky Vielle, who said the following in a broadcast to the fleet:

While I have served as president of the Twelve Colonies for only a short period, I have learned a few things about the needs and duties of the office that I think we all can learn from. The first is communication. Without this it is not possible to function effectively and to hear the will of the people and to effectively enact the commands that at times must be given. The second thing is teamwork, and having a core of trusted people around you who will help and support and advise, for no one person can hope to be all thinsg to all people and be wise and fair at all times.

Thank you, and Captain Halberd, Good Luck!

Following this message, Serapis took the oath from President Elect Tanya Halberd, who addressed the citizens of the fleet. Her inspiring speech was interrupted several times with applause from the supportive audience:

Tanya Halberd at her inauguration 2/1/2001 as President of the Colonial fleet led by Pacifica.
Vice President Vielle, Admiral, esteemed members of the military, fellow citizens, we observe today a celebration of freedom — symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning — signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and our gods the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed going all the way back to the Lords of Kobol.

Humanity is very different now. We lost much, but we have each other. We have in our mortal hands the power to thrive with our brothers and sisters, and to defeat the vicious enemy that pursues us.

We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of the legacy of greatness that was once the 12 Colonies. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation, tempered by war, proud of our ancient heritage—and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which our people have always been committed.

We shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

This much we pledge—and more.

To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United, there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided, there is little we can do—for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.

In the long history of our people, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility—I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us will fail in our calling to uphold humanity in all its glory. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will shine before the gods.

Our fleet calls us, our people call us, our friends call us. It is up to us to respond with the greatness that is ours individually and collectively. We fight for the freedom of our race.

No matter who you are, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, may the gods bless us all.

Thanks to all of you!

People seemed quite moved by this call for individual responsibility and dedication to the fleet for the sake of humanity.

Following the ceremony, attendees proceeded to Afterburners for a formal ball in Afterburners under the watchful eye of fleet Marines and other security personnel.
