Re: 5/13/2211 The Regular Army O

"Neutralise the asset for easy take-over by your pincer. We are to deny the power to any local defenses. Sensors, comms, everything without an organic back-up. Non-destructive, of course. As our client is a commercial entity rather than a state organ, and we are not soldaty , I believe it is more in...

Re: 5/13/2211 Regular Army OoC

Thanks, I've got the route right in my head now.
Nevertheless, the frontier can be a lonely place, haunt of pirates, scouts, mercs, settlers, and bold merchants.
Reckon we'll be at home. 4 out of 5 ain't bad :)

"Your proposal is for a distant system, mine is local. I would rather discuss the details in a less public place." "In outline, we need to reach a location temporarily outwith government control.

Re: 5/13/2211 Regular Army OoC

Re: 5/13/2211 The Regular Army O

"Republic." Adding between delicate forks of purple cabbage, "As persona non grata, as there I actually made the news, I have had a falling out with the Imperium.
