MXD Official Press Release

OK, Naqam - IzzyChan and Silver Night in particular. I know that your natural cranial functions atrophe fairly quickly and that you have limited onboard processing power, since most of the work is done by an external node, so I'll make all this simple, and try not to use too many big words, just for you guys.

Get out of the Federation.

I'm giving you 48 hours to pack up any operations that you might be undertaking in Federation space, including (but not limited to) the Safe Harbour project, production or sale of the NHB Ultra Happy Chip, production or sale of Slave-class implants or logistical or tactical support of non-Naqam Sansha operations in regions which the Federation control in whole or in part, defined as Everyshore, Essence, Placid, Verge Vendor, Solitude and particularly Sinq Laison.

I would usually only give you 24 hours, but I understand that due to the effects of Sansha cerebral mutilation you're not particularly quick, so given that I somewhat pity you, you get double that. Aren't I a nice guy?

Failure to comply with this order will of course result in a war declaration, and a forcible expulsion from Federate territory. I actually managed to get Orun to agree to this one, as one of the few things we agree on is that Sansha influence is universally cancerous and is unwelcome anywhere, particularly here. Peddle your insane misanthropy somewhere else or die.

Oh dear, I rather botched that promise not to use long words, didn't I? Not to worry, though - I'm sure there's a dictionary floating around somewhere on the core network. Perhaps you can look some of them up while you make toast. Laughing

I'm sure this will have the exact effect you're looking for, both impressing people and striking fear into the hearts of your enemies.

Honestly. It will.

Honestly, given the single-mindedness exhibited by most True Slaves, I am almost certain it will be ignored or ridiculed by them. I simply felt it neccessary to give fair warning. As for my flippancy - well. I feel it neccessary to act honourably to my opponents, but I am under no such moral obligation to act politely. They are, after all, murderers, slavers and looters.

Exactly the sentiment I expected, so not a terrible setback. However, should you do the sensible thing and reconsider, the offer to vacate Federation territory will remain open, expiring at 17:00 hours, Thursday 17th, at which point the war will have been active for its mandatory 24-hour cooldown period. If proof is given at Naqam operations in the Federation have ceased, the war will be terminated without prejudice.

As for who made me the boss of you, I'm the CEO of a liscenced Federal paramilitary, operating in Federal space, telling you to get the hell out of it. There's no real official power behind my words, but basically, I'm going to shoot your ships if I see you in Federation space. If you don't like that, get out of Federation space! It's really simple.

I object to the term "crochety" nutjob. Rodj Blake is a crochety nutjob. Gaven Lok'ri is a crochety nutjob. Darth Sage is a crochety nutjob. I'm only 25. You can't be crochety until you're at least forty. I'd say I'm closer to a "narcissistic" nutjob.

Alright, I'll give you that, based on the fact that your nutjobbery differs greatly from the nutjobbery of all those people you described. And since they are all quite decidedly crotchety (except maybe Darth Sage, who is really just utterly bat**** insane), QED, you aren't crotchety.

Though I might argue "militantly idealistic" might be a more accurate nutjob variety than "narcissistic." Maybe. Either way, I'm no fan of the Sansha loons. Give 'em hell.

While you might insult their intelligence, I've learned that Naqam is one of those corporations you shouldn't take lightly.

Do so might result in a good number of Andreus corpses floating in space.

Welcome to the Federation, home of freedom, open-mindedness, and democracy...

Unless Andreus doesn't like you, in which case, we'll let him murder you until you get the hell out.

And no, we don't trust our citizens with decisions about what implants they'd like to have...that would be too close to actual freedom of choice.

While I might agree with you to an extent, I think this is more a case of "we do not think you are being honest about the effects of the implants you offer, preventing citizens from making an informed choice and possibly leading them to give up their freedom when it was not their intent to do so."

Sansha's Nation is an outlaw entity in both the Federation and the State. I'm just enforcing it.

A serious question here: are you ignorant of the dubious circumstances behind this chip's distribution, or are you simply trolling?

The SCC has no record of the NHB Ultra Happy Chip on their product database, which means that it's being produced and marketed without SCC liscencing, which is in itself a grievous violation of CONCORD laws. Secondly, there is no Federation Customs record on the UHC, which suggests that they are either mass-producing it in Gallente space (again, without an SCC liscence or SCC-registered blueprint, which is illegal) or smuggling it in (which is of course a violation of Federal Customs and Import laws).

Lastly, my request to see certain sections of the chip's schematics and transceiver software were summarily denied by Silver Night. Given that the schematic in question was the primary neural interface, a section which is virtually identical on almost all similar chips and indeed quite a large amount of the schematic would be intimately familiar to any pilot who has the Cybernetics skillbook downloaded into his brain, and also that the sections of code I wanted to see (which dictate the information the chip sends and recieves) would not be particularly useful to anyone trying to create a duplicate version given that they are simply a complex value table that would be easily duplicable independently by any relatively adept programmer, and I was interested in the data the chip sends and recieves, rather than the structure of the code - ah, well, this sentence runs on a little bit.

Basically, I asked for access to proprietary data that would not in any way be useful to me were I to want to create a competing product (which I don't, as MXD is a paramilitary, whereas Naqam claims to focus mainly on R&D and industry). This would, incidentally, have been less data than they would have been required to submit to the SCC in order to obtain registration and liscencing for its sale. My aim in obtaining this data was to analyse whether the chip could be used in ways other than its advertised purpose - for instance, as a backdoor override to a subject's higher brain functions, as Sansha are fond of doing.

At every turn Naqam have been evasive on the true capabilities and purpose of the chip, and have almost certainly violated SCC and Federation Customs restrictions on the manufacture, transport and sale of sensitive neuroelectronic equipment.

Just to nitpick, neither is modified modules used by various other factions, including various Navies and pirate groups, or even finer-tuned modules enjoyed by many pirate officers, but I get this feeling that people trading such wares are not violating any CONCORD policies in particular, unless I am having some comprehension problems with SCC policies. Which I very may well may, but nonetheless.

Their evasive approach towards purpose of the chip is, funnily enough, main reason why I wish to try it out. It is a mysterious entity that is begging to be investigated and studied.

Out of silly curiousity, Andreus, if the Nation is an outlawed entity according to CONCORD law, doesn't that make trafficking and/or association with them a punishable offense?

Correction - officer- or faction-modified modules, implants, etc. cannot be sold on local markets, but they do have SCC database entries with corresponding information and there are schematics for some of these items that, while not neccessarily being liscenced by the SCC, conform to standardised regulations, allowing them to be manufactured at any compliant station. This is what enables them to be transferred through the SCC's contract system. The NHB Ultra Happy Chip has no such database entry, and it is quite likely that a ship's computer, if one were to loot a shipment of them, would not recognise what they were.

Brother, I would advise in the strongest possible terms against installing any Sansha wetware. I don't even trust SCC-cleared Slave implants, to be perfectly frank.
