(GBS Station) After TRI Corp. initially announced that it believed its TRI-TRAN-1 automated transport ship had probably been destroyed by storms or Conflux, pilot RazorsKiss publicly claimed that he had destroyed the ship and its cargo — as revenge for an alleged “hit” put on him by TRI Asst. Director of Conflux Studies (TRI-DEF-CSD), Carlo Adiar.
“This pilot needs to be punished — severely,” said TRI Corporation CEO, Garth Taren. “First of all, his rationale is ridiculous. It’s either a lie or a delusion. I’d love to see the ‘intelligence’ produced that implicates Mr. Adiar.”
“I have no idea what the real motivation was here, but the load of gold and platinum lost,while very valuable, was not the real loss here. We lost 25 antiflux that we had been able to retrieve from the old Conflux Containment Center (CCC) facility in Inner Aman. They were destined for public markets to help alleviate the shortage. And the most tragic loss was a data disk containing invaluable, irreplaceable conflux data — which we also recovered from the CCC facility.”
“We have contacted Solrain, Octavius and Quantar to discuss possible political implications, since the actions of this pilot have broad cross-factional impacts.”
