I had walked over to the centrifuge, and deposited blood samples of specific Minmatar slaves of Adm. Trevize’s property, as a favor and a pleasure. I stood there and began to watch the centrifuge begin to spin. Spin and spin and spin it did. The whirr of the machine was constant and soothing.

An intrusive slave janitor poked his head into my lab, and asked when I would like the lab cleaned up. On his janitorial equipment cart was the SPCS approved radio, which was only tuned to ACN or one of the dozens of religious channels. A soprano female voice seemed to have a hint of venom behind it. I only caught a few words. Ubiqua Seraph. Theft. Murder. Betrayal. Godless-multinational scum I believe was the favorite phrase I caught. A cough not my own made me realize I had a janitor still looming in my lab, so I dismissed him, telling he could return when I was not here tonight.

I could have turned on my own radio in the lab to hear the rest of the report. I nearly did. With a realization I stopped my fingers about a foot from the button, and did not feel the need to learn more about the affair.

I believed I knew enough from the original media orgasm.

When it had happened, I mulled in my head as to the extent of my pity for the second-fiddle Amarrian paramilitary alliance. I knew many former associates who were in the alliance, but none from the targeted corporation. Those I knew suffered little other than a scratch on their pride. For that I was thankful.

But there was the issue with my kin, the Sarumites.

Someone had suggested that it might have been an act of God. It was no secret that the sequestered Sarumite sect had upheld specific and questionable loyalties, as well as a few dubious activities. Arguing over proof would take years, but the only fact of the case was they are not the Empire’s favorite birth child for reasons all too obvious to themselves. Therefore, an act of God was not out of the question.

They said changes would happen. At that moment, they could have convinced me God was a tangible entity. But time has been seeded, and since those words, I fear my Sarumite kin would instead dig themselves deeper into the hole Jamyl Sarum began when she passed without naming an heir. We hold onto traditions that have but faded into obscurity. The Reclaiming is nothing but a hallow joke. We have become an endangered species.

If anything, God hates the Sarumites.

The centrifuge buzzed to announce the spin was finished, and my lapse into the misfortune of others came to an end. I walked over to the machine, and pressed a button that made the samples rise from the centrifuge. I picked up one of them, and looked at it behind a florescent light.

I was satisfied with the results.

I am well aware of the fact that you are only an ensign of PIE and not one of those in charge. I know your posting is not an official PIE statement.

Nevertheless I think ensigns shouldnt be allowed to make such statements like: AM is a 'second-fiddle Amarrian paramilitary alliance' or 'they are not the Empire?s favorite birth child for reasons all too obvious to themselves'.

Your statement 'an act of God was not out of the question' regarding the SHGC theft is very surprising because several of your superiors already said in a different thread there was no involvement of God.

Of course I dont make the rules for public statements for PIE... The official position of PIE isnt clear when I read such statements, though.

Most of all the words 'Godless-multinational scum' are confusing me. Its sad that I couldnt listen to that particular radio program. Who is that godless multinational scum? Both the SHGC and Ubiqua Seraph have members of different races like your former corp Metatron.

Greetings Citizen Ardor, I see there are issues for me to respond to.

I am an ensign in the PIE navy, but my duty is Representitive from Sabaoth Inc. I take orders when in combat, but my position is one of observation for the Sarum supporting Sabaoth Inc.

Easy to get that confused.

As for the comments themselves, apologies for being blunt.

Ah, religion, something I can openly argue about.

I believe the consenus of the clergy within the CVA was that God could not do such a terrible thing to His beloved children.

That, of course, is a double-edged sword.

Well, these observations aren't really public announcements, they're more of the Sermons Brother Mort does occationaly, except more attuned to the Materialist Amarrian. He praises the Lord, I don't.

So, these observations are not backed by PIE or the CVA, unless they choose to.

I assume they refered to the GHSC. Personally I've known many Caldari, even Gallente, who have been most productive furthering the goals of the Empire. The GHSC is not a representitive of the intentions of their respective races, but a representation of the capability of their race.

I certainly hope this clears up your confusion.

Have an enlightened day, citizen...

I can only guess some traumatic incident during your several-month absence explains your sudden change of opinion. *shrugs*

Either way, I tend to wonder myself at such divine accusations. When the Militia was founded, we were a union of Fleets with a shared military objective. Now, nearly a month after 'the theft' we are much more. We have united in a way that I do not believe we would have had this crime not occured. It's hard to explain really....

But you are a scientist after all, and not concerned with such mythos as destiny and such. I would still implore you to show some respect for those of us who do.

*chuckles*

*adopts a tone of amused irony*
I don't know, these ill-disciplined alliances that let anyone who feels the mood take them make public pronouncements... Shocking.

*usual tone of voice*
Evidently we see in the Aegis Militia a more discplined strain of paramilitary and moreover one that at least has the benefit of holding to a consistent philosophy on the organisation, extent and ethos of the Amarrian Empire. (Not that I agree with one iota of said doctrine.)

So unlike the mish-mash of Reclaimers, Consolidators, slave-huggers, slave-scourgers, rogue blood-sect supporters, buffoonish chaplains and demented rejects from the Amarr Navy that we see in some other quarters of the Empire...

I also note with interest that adversity has made AM stronger. A part of me is glad of this, despite my profound differences with these Amarrian kin. I see adversity proving to be a strengthening influence on my own alliance and here, perhaps, is a lesson for anyone who seeks to destroy the works of those who hold strong ideals.

A double-edged sword when strong ideals clash, of course, but better than the assassin's garrote, so to speak.

It boils down to the love sick hate that a Rich pirate feels for Mirial.
God chose one man to strike down the mad emperor. This theft required 10 months billions in investment and the collusion of such people as Tyrrax and GH-SC.

Scientists are supposed to look for causal relationships, not for correlations...

There are always fundamental truths in things, however in this case I believe these words clarify the situation.

Understanding is a three-edged sword. There is your side, their side, and the truth..
