Orly/Numeria XX-XXXXXXXX

Received 01 Mar-2257

Today's debate in the Sanei involved the identity of the next Governor of the Saraten Lowlands. Post-session interviews revealed several surprises. Marchan Aldrez d'Orly was mentioned by a number of the Saneia as the leader in the day's discussion, winning a substantial plurality of the votes. Other candidates receiving significant vote blocs included Saroch Ollenen d'Tamsen of Sarhus and Mera d'Somerset of The Saraten Lowlands.

A small bloc of pro-Return to Terra Saneia registered a protest vote by nominating and supporting the ancient Terran cultural icon, Bugs Bunny. Prime Minister Avram D'Tauren was said to be noticeably irritated, and ruled the nomination out of order.

The day's proceedings were apparently orderly, although Saneia Giule Thorgrym d'Orly of Sarhus was ejected from the convocation about midday. The Sanei's Sergeant at Arms refused to comment on the reason for the ejection, other than to note that it was ordered by the Prime Minister. Saneia Giule Thorgrym d'Orly was seen departing the Sanei building wearing an unusual piece of costumery: two large floppy gray rabbit's ears affixed to the sides of his head.

End Story

The Fed in response and to keep the growth on course announced a cut in the prime rate by one quarter of one percent. The move was hailed by the business community of orly.

Chancellor Magnus Haraldsson appeared in public with Countess Álfhildr Auðunardóttir of Ruusland today, presiding over a gathering of Ruusland's's foremost industrial and business leaders. The Chancellor praised the Countess for her management of her domain, particularly with regard to the recent end to Ruusland's terrorist seperatist movement and the financial bailout of the Ruusland Industrial Consortium. Afterward, gossip columnists speculated about whether the Countess had attracted the Chancellor's eye, but there seemed no visible evidence of any personal connection between the two.

As most readers know the year of 2257 has been a quiet one. And we all can hope that the peace and prosperity of the last year will continue. Never-the-less, the Interstellar New Network will be right there to report anything that may affect the fine folks who watch or read our broadcasts.

We do have one newsbit from Numeria and, amazingly, we have two end of year speeches to report on.



Orly/Numeria XX-XXXXXXXX

Recieved 23 June, 2257

The Tamlin Military Base had its Organizational Design building burn down. A plugged in electrical heating unit was knocked over in the files storage area of the building. The building was saved but the files storage, conference rooms, and off duty quarters were a total loss. Laosin Jenin Foros d'Orly commented that the damage was minimal and his unit would be back on track shortly.

Orly/Numeria XX-XXXXXXXX

Recieved 31 December, 2257

The following is the transcript from the Numerian Prime Minister's speech to the Sanei:

"Fellow Numerians! It has been a year since I began my administration and I wish to share with you our progress. We now have a navy to assist us in exploring our vast planet and assisting in preventing outbreaks of lawlessness. Our army has begun a modernization program and is slowly expanding to to perform the tasks assigned to it, like the protection of all Numerians from whatever unknown dangers may be lurking in the unexplored portions of our planet. But this is paltry in comparison to what else we have accomplished."

"The Dream has always pushed us to do what is right, even when it was easier to do that which was wrong! Even in the clan wars of the last century we observed the Forms of the Dream and we came out the better for it! The sacrifice in blood and tears was worth it for without that time of stryfe we would not be free of the Saruchi tyranny! But I must warn my fellow citizens, we can never rest our vigilance."

"The Darkness will creep in when good men say that it is not their problem! The Darkness can not stand when good men act in concert against it. We will return to the stars and fulfill our destiny that our ancestors were cheated of." The Prime minister's voice dropped in tone, his voice speaking a promise. "Beware, for if you choose to be our foes then tremble for we will come for you. But those who choose to be our allies, we will stand by you, aid you, and support you in your time of need. There shall be no Saruchi, no knife in the back for you. Together we will enfold the galaxy in the Light of the Dream."

"There shall be no more Saruchi, no more victims, no more harm done to us. We shall follow the Dream and take the hand of the Elysians. We may falter, we may make mistakes, but we shall never fail, for we shall never stop trying. Good day to you all and may the light shine on your path."

INN Reporter's commentary: "Have we just heard a declaration of 'Manifest Destiny' by the Numerian Prime Minister? And if so, what does that bode for the one who resist the Numerians?

End of Story


Bautarsteinn/Blackenwald XX-XXXXXXXX

Recieved 31 December, 2257

The following is the transcript from the Überlegener Mensch Chancellor's end of year speech:

“Citizens of Blackenwald, it has been twelve months since the Gods declared that Ragnarok was over. What have we accomplished? We are slowly rebuilding our nation. We have vanquished the enemy and what remains of their people lay beneath the heel of our boots. We now look to the sky and by the grace of the Dark Ones; we will take our rightful place in the universe beyond."

We have more to achieve before we can throw off the shackles of this world, there is new lands to be tamed, industry to be built, raw materials to be exploited and an Army to be rebuilt. We have shown that we truly are the Überlegener Mensch... the Superior Man.... the next step in the process of evolution."

In honour of our victory and to the Dark Gods themselves, in consultation with the Council of Völvas, I declare tomorrow a day of celebration.”

INN Reporter's Commentary: This is astounding! Two declarations of 'Manifest Destiny' in one day! The problem, in this reporter's opinion, is that each one has declared for either the light or the dark. This may very well be a sign that dreadful times are upon us. For we all remember the legends of the the Dark Ones and their ravaging of Old Terra. Can this be an omen their return is nigh?
