Yet again our Star Reporter Killian Robertson has managed to bring us a thrilling story about heroics and betrayal! In a weird twist of events (can you really call it coincidence?) Killian crosses paths again with the weird crew of the mysterious ship Celestra, a ship that seems to be deeply involved in everything strange and suspicious going on nowadays. Killian met the Hero, mister G. Madsen, shortly after his triumphant return to his home colony of Luna. He just singlehandedly turned in the dangerous terrorist A. Ensslin to the authorities at SevCol station, but was immediately betrayed by his very own captain, the captain of the Celestra, who had the heroic Madsen confined to the brig at SevCol station as well. Madsen is now safe and well at Luna, but you’ll have to read Killian Robertsons EXCLUSIVE report for yourself to believe what has happened!
Independent News just got word that the SevCol vessel SCSS Celestra has been offering a safe haven to the known terrorist Andrea Ensslin. She was captured when she tried to set foot on SevCol Station. She was apprehended by the courageous bounty hunter G. Madsen. She is currently being held at the brig at SevCol Station. We sincerely hope this criminal will finally be brought to trial so that justice can prevail. We will do our utmost to keep our readers updated on this matter.

Among the chaos on the surface of Luna, the destruction of a vital facility has gone unnoticed until this morning. Sources talk of an altercation of unknown persons nearby the facility, followed by an explosion and a fireball rising from the burned out remains of the plant.
The destruction of the Luna CO2 scrubber facility has lead to a rising fear of suffocation among the Luna citizens. Rising carbon dioxide in the air was predicted to be fatal to 50% of the population within 78 hours.
Thankfully, upon learning of the impending tragedy, the Endeavour Computer Systems Megacorp has graciously volunteered to retool their Xenon Liquification Facility to remove excess CO2 from the air. Endeavour Scientists stress that this is not a permanent solution, but their hard work and sacrifice will make it possible for the people of Luna to breathe freely for another few weeks.
Endeavour PR reports that their effort are extremely costly, but to save the people of luna, no expense would be spared.
We of the SevCol News Network have recently published a message addressed to the citizens of Luna by the former Minister of Education, Micah Al-Sahaf.
Earlier today we broadcast a message we received from the SCSS Celestra which seemed to discredit the message and intentions of Micah Al-Sahaf.
For the sake of unbiased journalism we will publish the response of Micah Al-Sahaf to SCSS Celestra’s message fully.
Dear citizens of Luna,
Recently, this network has published a statement by an unnamed Martian priest.
He calls for cooperation and a peaceful solution, which I obviously agree with.
But, he goes on to suggest we should work together with outside influences like SevCol. The help that SevCol is currently sending is appreciated to help us through the current crisis, the material help that is. However, the forces that they have sent are merely adding to the chaos.
We, as Lunar citizens, should come together and overthrow the outside influences. This will allow us to form a new government. I certainly plan to lend my expertise to this new government, but I absolutely do not plan on ‘ruling with an iron fist’. Mostly, I plan on leading an interim government, until calm and peace has been restored. At that time, elections will be held.
The allegations that I would work with DeFans of Luna are simply absurd. I have joined their (open) group on SevBook, to keep an eye on their activity, as any decently competent politician would have done.
So to all Luna Citizens, I say this: continue with your resistance, keep yourself safe, and work for the Luna as we all know and love. And don’t give in to the fearmongering and chaos spread by the many forces trying to influence the path that Luna should follow.
We just picked up a broadcast send from the SCSS Celestra, warning against xenophobic parties active in the Luna colony, attempting to get people to join them by spreading propaganda.
