Sisters and brothers, allies and friends, Summit! I am very excited about a fun project we at the Icecream Audit Office been working on for past some months with the Electus Matari PR division and crew, and I can now release to the public! Six episodes are already cut and a seventh is in the editing room, with plans to continue to at least 12, possibly further depending on reception.

The Rookies is an exciting new reality holovid show about seven young men and women of the tribes who join the crews of Electus Matari combat fleets in search of adventure and challenges. Through 12 exciting episodes we follow their journey on the decks and docksides of the heroes of the Republic!
Everything is recorded 100% authentic in actual real situations and edited by professional staff for to make you feel like you really were there!
For security reasons episodes are released some time after actual events and location details can be obscured or removed.
No, sorry nerds, but I have no intent to actually make the videos for real; this is just a story about and imaginary in-universe vid-series.
Episode 9. Drupar’s Stand. A key battle in Pochven turns grim, as the fleet docks after being driven away from a structure grid by hostiles. A call for volunteers for skeleton crews for a number of ships for a likely no-return mission goes out. Turns out when Serim’s ship is one of those going out, he has no trouble finding his courage when it matters. The hastily gathered wing goes out to the fight again, and wins the objective on the last possible moment, ship after ship going down in the attack on range zero of the exploding structure. Reaction on docksides is a chaotic mixture of triumph and grief as the stand-down progresses into a night-long remembrance party.
“They DID IT! They really DID IT!”
“They were volunteers. We are a people of sacrifices.”
“A true Drupar’s Stand, I’ve never in my two decades seen anything like that. I’m so proud to serve with EM.”
“They will sing songs about that for generations!”
“I should’ve been there. I have no idea how to live with that.”
“Please leave, this is a private gathering.”
“TURN THAT ■■■■■■■ THING OFF.”
“Hey camera drone people, why don’t you come with us? We have some cool stories for you.”
Note for foreign viewers: Drupar Maak was a Starkmanir and personal slave of Arkon Ardishapur on Starkman Prime. Maak assassinated Arkon, the then head of House Ardishapur, with the latter’s own scepter of authority, sparking the Starkmanir Rebellion, in an act of defiance he knew he would not survive. “Drupar’s Stand” refers to a suicide attack or action, taking knowingly and willingly, for a greater gain.
Episode 10 was such a boring letdown. Just one tiresome monologue after another. First they insult us with the trig tribal, and then they lecture us about Amo? Clearly someone decided to put the social justice league in charge of writing, but it just goes to show that politics doesn’t make for good entertainment. Frankly the series went downhill after Kimi got written out, they should have just renewed her contract, instead of trying to save a little money.
