Well. Isn’t this something to behold.
My unsolicited opinion: Just turn the crap over. I’m as wary of Drust and CONCORD’s truthfulness as anyone, but there’s one line that sticks out to me:
To me, this comes across almost as a plea. A vague and coded plea, but a plea nonetheless. If Drust knew how to make emotional pleas, he’d be in a different line of work.
We can speculate on what he’s referring to, but ultimately, we don’t know. Maybe there’s something to this; maybe he’s lying so he can get his grubby hands on the goods. And if this were in empty space, I’d say go for it, stockpile that ■■■■, and hope it leads to the finest damn space rodeo the cluster has ever seen.
But as a reminder, ARC, and every other capsuleer organization that’s now involved, including mine, is in Semiki to protect lives. Lives that were endangered, no less, by an attack that may involve this very technology.
Now is not the time to gamble on CONCORD’s intentions.
