(Hyperial Station) Everything on Hypsos went quiet for 15 minutes at noon today in remembrance of former President Dr. Kelvin Rauder whose 60th birthday it would have been today.
Rauder was elected on 098.4.1 and served as Hyperial President for more than 11 years up to his assassination on 109.11.5 — less than a year short of his 12-year term. From 12:00 to 12:15 (UTC) all businesses were shut down and comm-networks went silent. President, Drago Maximilian released the following statement.
Today, on his birthday, we remember the life of Dr. Kelvin Rauder — a man who led us through very interesting times. He stood strong against TRI, who refused us our rights because its strings were being pulled by the faction overlords. He opposed every Quantar attempt to undermine us. And through it all, he lead Hyperial to become a preeminent center of manufacturing and trade.
