The (Unregulated) Update

unregulated-updateVol. II, No. 4 – by Ares Kiden

Well there has not been a ton of news since the last Update, but wanted to keep things rolling anyway.

Election Adventures

Not going to re-hash everything that has been published, but this has been a little raucous.  I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything but after-the-fact news about Hyperial elections, but this one has kept the popcorn popping.  Guy appears out of nowhere to become a candidate and starts broadcasting dirty laundry.  Ok, not really dirty — just slightly sweaty maybe.  Then an alleged supporter gets arrested for hauling contraband . . . but maybe he’s not really a supporter.  And now the dark-horse candidate has clammed-up with the election a few days away.  But we did learn what a wonderful place Barnard is.

Smuggling Upsurge

So what’s going on with Prosthetics?  We had not heard a word about them for years and now we’ve seen them in the news for the second time, and it’s pretty clear that TRI-SEC is on the lookout for more.  I assume they’re still coming from Hyperial, so stemming the tide should be fairly easy.  But why is there even a market for them?  Have to look into this some more, I think.

 

. . . like I said, not a lot of news.

Prosthetics Smuggler Apprehended

by Thane Carios

(Solrain Wake Station) A smuggler flying a Phaeton was apprehended yesterday in Bronci Rift by TRI Security for allegedly having Prosthetics in-hold, a commodity that hasProsthetics been outlawed for many years.  The pilot’s name has not been release pilot pending an official arraignment.

There has, as yet, been no speculation regarding the smuggler’s planned destination or destinations.

After years of lobbying and protests — primarily by Quantar — Prosthetics exports from Hyperial were outlawed by TRI after evidence was unearthed that the Prosthetics included organic tissue of questionable origin.  Hyperial was thought to have stopped all Prosthetics production in 107.
