This is Meros Dragovich reporting for SCNN with an update on the Kordoss Riots.
After the presence of armed UAC personnel was confirmed at the site of the recent Mining-claim Massacre, riots have consumed not only Kordoss, but its orbital infrastructure as well. Despite all evidence, Union Aerospace Corporation has denied all involvement.
UAC representative Brent Spar: “We have no interest in instigating hostilities with the local mining consortiums, their employees or their holdings. UAC is a family-centered corporation and we hold the safety of everyone in the highest regard”.
Rioting has spread from the mines to the cities, causing widespread civil disruption and casualties. The Saturn Refugee Movement has reportedly started handing out emergency rations, air filtration units and battery-powered heaters to alleviate the worst of the suffering caused by damage to the fragile life support systems in smaller settlements. Despite their best efforts, widespread injuries and deaths have been reported.
Among the casualties is Janey Hoffah, former spokesperson for the Kordoss independent miners. Her death while trying to address a crowd of protesters occupying a UAC satellite office on Herbert Hoover Station seems to have inflamed the protests. Several witnesses report miss Hoffah being shot by UAC personnel, while others say she was trampled when the crowd tried to flee after gunshots were heard.

While apprehending Doctor Henry Cotton and turning him in at SevCol station Customs-3, a situation has developed on the mineral-rich world of Kordoss.
Clashes over claims and bad blood between UAC and independent miners, supported by well-meaning benefactors, have resulted in several deaths and untold damage. The Celestra is sent to investigate and, if possible, resolve the situation.
While docked at the Kordoss space elevator, the view outside the airlock is one of unrest, accusations and anger.
Breaking news on the Kordoss Crisis!
Recently news has reached this news station of a deadly incident at one of the mining-claims in the disputed regions on Kordoss. Details are scarce at this time, but eye-witness reports speak out dozens of casualties.
Janey Hoffah, current spokesperson for the independent miners is placing the blame with the UAC corporation. “These people don’t know when to stop grabbing more and more, and they don’t care who gets hurt!” says Janey Hoffah.
UAC’s Kordoss Office representative Brent Spar could not be reached at this time. His office let us know that UAC would never be involved in any attacks or actions against existing claims or against the independent miners of Kordoss.
More information will be published as it becomes available.

The Celestra has made its first journey ever to Alpha Centauri. They were following a path of clues in their search for a certain doctor. Who is this doctor? Where can he be found? And what should be done with him?
Hello, I am Meros Dragovich, with SCNN
Today, we bring you an update on the Kordoss situation. As we all know, UAC has recently started exploiting new claims on Kordoss. Numerous private miners have since left to UAC, touting much-improved conditions, higher pay and shorter hours.
Last week, UAC revised their “come all” policies on Kordoss, leading to growing discontent among private miners who have sold their claim and are now unemployed. These recently unemployed miners have been forced to rely the generosity of the local Saturn Refugee Movement employees, who have come to Kordoss to “assist the Downtrodden”, according to Janey Hoffah.
I stand here at the UAC recruitment office, which has recently been firebombed by parties unkown, alledgedly in retribution for the rejection of over 50 miners who, according Janey Hoffah, have unfairly been failed out of UAC training, after being previously approved.
Union Aerospace Corporation has released the following statement:
“We regret the recent turn of events. We were overwhelmed with the influx of new workers, and while UAC is extremely thankful for the trust you have placed in us, we regret to inform you that there are currently no vacancies in our local branches for miners. We predict future growth opportunities will create additional opening for skilled miners and support personnel, so keep an eye on our employment boards!”
Dear crewmembers, ship security, specialists and passengers,
SevCol is proud to present its second role-play event of 2018: SevCol 11: Beyond This Horizon. We will be playing both on Saturday and Sunday on 13 & 14 October, with a pause for sleeping and breakfast in between.
The coming event will once again be held at the ‘Cee Spot’ in Enschede, our new location everyone seems to love! Please note that we absolutely require 25 paid registrations by October 3rd, as well as at least 5 people to help on the Friday before the event with the preparations, for the event to proceed.
After careful detective work on both Luna and Callisto, the crew of the Celestra has determined that the much sought after geneticist Henry Cotton is likely to be found somewhere on Lucis. They decided to pursue him, following the trail of clues.
But who else may be on the trail of this doctor? And what consequences may the doctor’s research have on the lives of humanity? Do we even want such knowledge out there? The crew of Celestra is journeying out towards the Worlds of Light to find the answer to possibly some of these questions.
Meanwhile, other troubles are brewing in other places in the Alpha Centauri system, as troublesome reports from Kordoss are hitting the news. Workers are speaking out about the terrible working situations in the mines and the heavy industries the planet is known for. As the workers are speaking out and uniting against the companies’ upper management, more are joining their ranks, creating a ruckus which might even lead to a great revolt.
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.
