AJB: Anthony Jakob Birge here! Welcome back to the BirgeBroadcast were everyday, all day, and all week, I give you THE TRUTH! That’s right, this is where we never censor content and tell you the true dirty facts about our society in the Empire. Today I have a special guest, the one and only Alicia Mellor from The Daily Chat! Alicia, what is the topic today?
Alicia Mellor: Last time I was on this show we were all arrested by the former Overseer for Conspiracy! Lets take a look at how our Acting High Overseer Aloturus Ottesius is doing!
AJB: The man sure has his politics straight doesn’t he? An unidentified reporter leaked an audio report capturing the very words of Ottesius himself, proving he isn’t a supporter of Aisling Duval, our princess! Listen here:

Alicia Mellor: So what do you think about these reports about Senator Adonis Manu sending CMDRs to fetch strange rares for Life’s Rift in Cubeo?
Alicia Mellor: There is a mysterious person blackmailing him too. His name is Spencer Isaak. Some of the CMDRs think he may have ties to the mercenary group that attacked Lubbock Penal Colony and wiped out the Law of Ladd terrorist cell. I’m even hearing reports that he has access to alien tech including a relocated crashed unknown ship.
AJB: Hey, if CMDRs are your sources I gotta ask you… Are they trustworthy? I’m always hearing about strange things including music and sounds being detected in the cosmos on our ship scanners. It’s called radiation! Ships simulate the data as sound to the pilot. The rumors beyond that are from space maddened pilots who need to take a break from the void from time to time.

A group of shady individuals wearing strange suits and fedoras entered a private casino on Adelman Station a few hours ago and gambled over 300,000 credits in what can only be described as a “war on the slot machines”. Sources confirmed that the men were representing Forculus Chronometry. While we cannot get a comment from the casino owner, the window displays have adjusted to reflect a change in ownership.
It is clear that the Forculus Brothers managed to win enough credits to buy out the casino. The organizations founder had this to say:
“What can I say? It was clear to us that the one-armed bandits were gathering for an ambush on our fragile wallets so we struck with a preemptive strike using credit reinforcements supplied from various supporting CMDRs in our war on the machines. We were victorious and the machines now serve us.” -Marcus DiPalo
