(UUNN HQ) Today’s ceremony for the transfer of the Enkido Kahn Log DSS and the awarding of the Emperor’s Emissary medals was tarnished by a mistake by UUNN who published the ceremony time as 16:00 UTC, when it should have been 15:00 UTC. because of this error, Hammer-BS — discoverer and decrypter of the DSS missed the ceremony entirely.
“We feel horrible about this,” said UUNN Founder and Publisher, Fence. “Especially for Hammer-BS. He played a huge role in this history-making affair, and he deserved to be there for the honors. This won’t happen again.”
Since many people missed the ceremony, the following is a transcript of the Emperor’s statements.
In-Station during the transfer of the DSS
This moment is historic for our people, and all I can say is “thank you.” I know you are not from Octavius . . . and you were not out there particularly looking for our history. Nonetheless, the two of you, because of your efforts and talents, have done something special for Octavius and something very special for me .
So I want you to know how personally grateful I am – not as an Emperor, but as someone who, a little boy, idolized Enkido Kahn and who read stories about him and emulated him in play with his friends.
Please go ahead and initiate the transfer.
Now let’s head outside to do the “official” stuff.
Awards Ceremony Outside Outpost Station
Welcome Octavius! Welcome Quantar! . . . and Solrain.
Aveg et Honore!
Today we celebrate both glory and honor.
We celebrate the glory of one of the great heroes of Octavius, whose voice has come back to us through the ages. We honor the pilots who have made this possible.
In the year 38AT, Enkido Kahn – one of the great heroes of Octavius and a revered son of Cinatus – made one of the great discoveries of our era. He made a decision to divert from his mission of scanning anomalies for jumpgate construction and investigate a dim star . . . He took a great risk, and he changed history with his discovery of Amananth.
Because of the efforts and talents of two pilots, Hammer-BS and Jalil, his voice has come echoing back to us through the years . . . from a time on the eve of his great discovery. We hear his determination, his dreams and his doubt. And our hero becomes a REAL person to us. And so today, we celebrate the reality of Enkido Kahn and we honor Hammer-BS and Jalil.
To that end… It is my honor and my pleasure, to present the Emperor’s Emissary medal to Hammer-BS and Jalil. Their efforts have made Enkido Kahn alive to us again. And their generosity bring the remnants of his log back to us so that we may remember and honor him better.
Aveg et Honore to Enkido Kahn!
Aveg et Honore to Hammer-BS!
Aveg et Honore to Jalil!
There was also a bit of excitement shortly after the Emperor had docked at Outpost when a pirate name Huzzah made his way toward outpost Sector and was fought primarily by pilot Clanlord and the station’s defense drones, but with Jalil actually landing the kill-shot.
