Lord Corwin Ryan, leader of the Prismatic Imperium, gave a speech today to an assembled crowd at in front of The People’s Media Complex on Cubeo III to a crowd of his followers. The subject was controversial but went over well.
‘Peace,’ said Lord Ryan. ‘With the Federation’. Initially silence followed his pronouncement. ‘For months now Federation pilots have been coming into our space. Stealing our cargo, shooting our ships, killing our pilots’.
‘And lets be clear, our pilots. Our pilots. Have been doing the same to them. Why? For political points. For political gain. So that the inhabitants of one world that once called President Hudson master can now call Senator Torval master or Senator Patreus or even our own dear Princess.’ A strange hush was settled over the crowd.
‘No more. And I know our Imperial Highness agrees with us. Your father, your brother, your sister, your mother should be able to fly safe. And reducing the number of Federation pilots in OUR space keeps our cargo coming. Reducing the number of Federation pilots in OUR space keeps our ships flying. Reducing the number of Federation pilots in OUR space, keeps our people. Alive’.
‘So yes. I say peace’.
At the conclusion of Lord Ryan’s speech the assembled crowd greeted their leader with a standing ovation.
