Orly/Numeria XX-XXXX

Recieved 01 Mar-2256

The spokesman for the Numerian Geographical Society announced today that they have recieved a charter from the Numerian Government to explore and map the untamed lands on the southern continent, specifically the region of S-2, and they expressed great optimisim that their expedition will uncover lands Numeria can use to the benefit of all Numerians.

The spokesman for Orly Aircraft Incorporated announced the groundbreaking for four new aircraft factories in Sarhus earlier today. Unemployment should drop by a considerable marign in Sarhus when these factories are complete the spokesman added. Leading economists confirmed the construction of so many new manufacturing plants will be beneficial to the Numerian unemployment figures.

To allay the fears of unrestrained inflation the Secretary of the Treasury released figures that indicated Numeria's GDP is continuing to grow at a steady and healty rate, which would counteract any inflationary possibilities.

The spokesman for the Numerian Geographical Society announced today that the prospecting expedition to the oceanic region of N-5 has uncovered vast desposits of Chromium and Granite. The biggest find in terms of colonization was a vast Shellfish breeding ground. These Shellfish nurseries will make supporting a population in N-5 much easier.

They further elaborated that the plateau could hold several industrial complexes in support of the potential colony site.

The NGS stated that further exploration of the region S-2 will reveal nothing of interest, but announced that region S-2 is open for prospectors to uncover the regions potential wealth and living space.

In conjunction with the NGS announcements the Numerian Government announced that charters for colonization expediditons are now avaliable for any group wishing to move and build in the newly explored untamed regions of Numeria.

Orly/Numeria               XX-XXXX  

Recieved: 01 Jun-2256

The Numerian Government annouced today that the southern region of S-2 has been officially named Tauren in honor of the legendary warrior from before the Destruction. Tauren fought several AI fleets and was one of the few commanders who consistantly defeated the soulless, metallic monsters. The Numerian Government has announced the construction of the infrastructure to support the colonization of Tauren has begun.

The explorers from Tauren upon their return were rushed to Orly and were placed under guard. The official statement for the governmental spokesman was the need to quarrantine them for a short time to prevent any possible infection they may have inadvertantly back with them.

In other news the display of several specimens of a new species of orchid brought back from Tauren in the main entry hall of the Numerian Geographical Society has drawn an unprecedented number of visitors, and the large numbers have caused the Society to transfer the rare flowers to another venue better suited to handling the crowds. The specimens of the Tellisen's Liaou Orchid, notable for their especially consistent pure pink color, have been moved to the main exhibit hall of the Numerian Museum of Natural History, where they will remain until further notice.

SECRET REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT:

Mr. President, as you are well aware of, the story of a predator attack was a cover for the real incident. According to the reports from the NGS the men were scouting a ridge in front of the main body when a garbled cry for help was heard over the comm channel. When a rescue team arrived the only thing found was bloody grass and one radio. The disturbing fact was the radio was severed in half. The melted edges of the radio halves looked to be carbonized and melted, as if a laser had been used to cut it in half.

We respectfully recommend that you dispatch a military expedition to Tauren and try to find out what happened to those men. What have we stumbled on to?

Lieutenant General Henry Therou
Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff

In the same press conference Lieutenant General Henry Therou, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, announced the groundbreaking and construction of a new army base in Tuaren.

Tauren, 18 August, 2256

"Colonel, we are about 25 miles from the construction site for the new Outpost, and the other commanders are getting nervous just like me. We have not seen one living thing. Even the normal steppe dwelling animals are absent. Only thing we have seen is a giant vulture overhead every now and then. This is getting spooky,"

Colonel Manchester turned and scrutinized his 2IC, "Rodgers I know, but our orders are to probe this area and see if there is any trace of the men that disappeared... or the cause of that disappearence. You wanna argue with the President?"

No way in hell I want to end up in the stockade, I'm just sayin somethin feels wrong about this place."

I know what you mean. This place gives me the willies."

Tauren, 5 September 2256

QUERY: Analysis of enemy actions and Command and Control Complete?

ANSWER: Affirmitive, weakness in enemy command structure recognised, main body of troops is controlled by direct neural transmission, along with secondary communications controlled from designated commanders. Knock out commanders and their communications equipment and the main body will be uncontrolled and easier to eliminate.

QUERY: Recommend course of action.

ANSWER: Recommend targeting of unit commanders and radio operators exclusively in the opening stage of the battle. When commanders are neutralized main body should be relatively easy to eliminate. Recommended course of action authorized.

With that the entity faded into the terrain once more, to allow the enemy time to present it's vulnerable commanders.

New America/New Earth               XX-XXXX

Received 15 Oct-2256  

The Justice Department has declined to release the names of three persons arrested on the White House grounds yesterday, pending further investigation.

"The culprits were apparently simple journalists, seeking out advance information on the upcoming Holloween celebrations," stated Attorney General Jordan Freeman. "We have no information thus far to indicate a more sinister purpose. Still, this is unlikely to make any difference in our treatment of the situation. Break into the White House to steal a cinnamon bun from the kitchen, and the Secret Service will treat you exactly as if you had planned foul deeds to the President."

Preparations for the upcoming Holloween festivities have been carried out under a great deal of secrecy. A White House spokesmen promised only that there will be a celebration of unparalleled magnificence to celebrate this most rare of events, a Solar Eclipse on October 31st.

In other news the spokesman for NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, announced the launching and construction of a new space station in orbit above New America. The President has given a short press conference and stated that he will have more to say when the station is complete and ready for human habitation.

The spokesman for the First Lady Arhuendia Mitchen announced today that the First Lady is expected to make a full recovery from her minor stroke of last month. The First Lady is reported to be out of bed and increasingly impatient with the restrictions placed on her by her physicians. Reportedly, only her daughter?s insistence has kept her from resuming her full daily schedule.

Police are trying to put kids off playing near railway lines with shock tactics - a pretend train crash. They staged the horrific mock accident, caused by vandals on the track, with 200 children watching. The kids saw injured, terrified passengers stumble from the smouldering train wreck at the mock-up on a stretch of disused track in Orly. Transport police are hoping it will drive the safety message home as the school holidays begin.



Askedron/Iskanderun               XX-XXXX  

Received 19 Oct-2256

It's five years since catching fish, lobsters and crabs was banned near an island off the coast of Askedron, and sea creatures are flourishing. There's now seven times more lobsters in the protected area around Kodiak Island than there are outside it. The zone was set up to help the problem of falling numbers of sea creatures and other wildlife hit by too much fishing. Scientists hope the growing numbers of animals in the protected zone will spill out into the surrounding sea. That would be good news for the fishermen in the area as they would be able to catch them.

Galen Tor just looked at his Vice President of Agriculture while he gave his report. "Sir, we have begun to construct more farms to feed our burgeoning population. It will take a few months till they come on line." The VP returned to his seat after finishing his report.

The VP for Research was next, Sir, we have begin construction on several more research facilites and they should be online in the next few months."

Last but not least, the VP for raw material production began his report, "Sir, we must find new sources of raw materials. At this rate of consumption our stockpiles will run out in the next few monthst, and then most of our industry will close their doors due to a shortage of raw materials. We muct begin to build more mines if we are to survuive."

Orly/Numeria XX-XXXXXXXX

Received 22 June-2258

Report recived from the INN reporter in Orly:


"Behind me in the distance, you can see five massive rockets dominating the distant skyline even though their launchpads are more then a mile in the distance. The buildings of the Space Center beyond them gives a good idea of their size."
 
"I can hear the Numerian Anthem swelling to it's truimphant conclusion as the Numerian Prime Minister reaches the podium and is turning to face the crowd. The next words you hear are the Numerian Prime Minister."

"Ladies and gentleman, our future is behind us. And yet it is in front of us as well. Our now is both here and in the future as it was in the past. We begin our return to the stars today, to join our ancestors in their track across the universe. Our goal has never changed, never waivered."

"To the stars we shall go, where we will fullfill our destiny! If you be our ally then welcome with all our hearts! If you be our enemy, tremble for we will come for you!"

"If you choose to be a friend, we shall open our doors and welcome you. If you choose otherwise, we will remember you. Our journey has begun again, and we know not were it will go, or who we will meet while upon it.  I am ready. Are you?"

"I can see the crowd, to a person standing and giving a standing ovation and shouting, 'Go forth the journey!'."  

"Behind us the massive rocket engines are blooming to life. Their deep rumble is drowning out the chanting from the crowd..." INN reporter is drowned out for a few moments.

"...Can they hear me now? One by one I can see the massive rockets slowly lifting off, gaining speed and disappearing into the clear blue sky on pillars of flame. We have been told they are boosting the beginnings of a space based infrastructure into high orbit."

So it seems the Numerians have begun to fullfill their claim of Manifest Destiny. So their journey has, indeed, begun."

"This is Kelly Brightman, INN News."
