(UUNN HQ) After corroborated pilot reports that a TRI-Enforcer-type ship was involved in an attack on the convoy transporting engineers to Amananth, Dominic Serus, Vice President of TRI-DEF (TRI Defense & Security), released the following statement.
TRI Corporation was in no way involved in last evening’s attack in Amananth. Two of our engineers were on the Tow that was attacked. As we have said in the past when there were alleged sightings of TRI Enforcers doing questionable things — we have just two ships remaining in our security fleet: TRI-SEC-1 and TRI-SEC-2. There are no others.
In the past we had dismissed the Enforcer-sighting pretty much out of hand since we knew it was not our ships. But now, with multiple reports from highly respected pilots, we must admit that — somehow — someone either managed to salvage one of the ships from the old TRI fleet . . . or has managed to copy the design. Neither is a very comfortable realization.
Although there are confirmed reports that the Enforcer with transponder code 303031 was destroyed, there is no guarantee that whoever is behind this may not have additional Enforcer hulls available.
We will be increasing patrols with TRI-SEC-1 and TRI-SEC-2. Any sightings of any other TRI-Enforcer “style” ships should be reported immediately.
