Nov 30, YC121 - Basgerin (0.4)
NEWS FLASH: Internal explosions are currently being detected in a Keepstar owned by House Singularity of the Sixth Empire. Reports of thousands of workers and residents are being evacuated from several decks of the Keepstar located in the Basgerin System (0.4). This is the largest non-combat related industrial accident to be recorded in an Upwell Citadel Structure.
Information is fluid but reports indicate that the location is approximately the internal main information data centers of the Sixth Empire Alliance. While there are several injuries, one body appears to be that of a capsuleer. The identity of the capsuleer is unknown at this time, and there is no information if the capsuleer was able to clone or be reanimated through controversial methods.
Pandora Singularity, Chief Diplomat and spokesperson for Sixth Empire just released a statement, “I can confirm that the central hub data center for our alliance is presently down. At present, our core information systems and backups are not responding to remote calls. We, however, have a very robust continuity of operations and on behalf of Max Singularity, I can assure you, our allies, and all members of blue standings that our operations are not affected. The Vatican Keepstar is fully operational, all internal operations of the Keepstar remain fully functional.
"We have 42 mortal civilians injured and are under Sixth Empire medical care. I can also confirm that we have taken custody of a deceased body of a Capsuleer. For operational security, we are withholding the identity of the capsuleer while we formerly launch an Accident Investigation (AI) and convene an emergency Mishap Investigation Board (MIB) of senior alliance personnel.
"In precaution, The Teal Guard, the Pope’s inner security corporation, has clone-jumped with Max Singularity to a safer location in null-sec. This is all I have confirmed at this time that I can convey to you.”
