@Gypsy_Nox Once again, I have to extend my gratitude to the efforts of the Coreli corporation/Interstellar Euphoria for pitching in and delivering the requested good to the station. Especially something as bulky and hard to move as an entire hanger array. We’ll make sure it gets to where it needs to be.
As for these stowaways… How very curious. Thank you for you thoroughness in screening them, we’ll take them from here.
Now then, with the array, construction blocks and majority of the mechanical parts (I can cover the rest, no worries on finishing it this time around). I’d say we can supply the station with everything it needs to make the repairs and then some.
There has been a lot of progress made on the investigation. The clear cut answer behind it all may be kept hidden from me, but we do have some further insight on the incident.
After speaking with pit crews, combing over footage, checking logs for who had used their I.D card to get past doors leading into the pits - we can safely determine that not only was this a sabotage, but an assassination attempt at the same time.
The two competing pilots that died in the explosion were two of the best pilots in the circuit, and I have brief biographies assembled for both of them.
------- Hiho “Daredevil” Leinsson -------
Hiho Leinsson is a former Federal Navy fighter pilot turned freelance stunt pilot that worked for numerous studios in the Federation and beyond. Hugo’s stunt work is sometimes the main focus of the camera, while other times he’s one of the nameless extras in massive fleet fights you see in holo-reels. While making steady income off this career, Hiho began craving some more genuine thrills that weren’t dependent on a holo-reels script and began taking part in illegal fighter craft races in special deadspace complexes deep in Fedeal space. Eventually catching the attention of the authorities and making a run across the border, all the way to Venal where he’s craving for speed and danger can be encouraged.
------- Tani “Subwarp” Jorve -------
Not much is really know about this pilot aside from her winnings in the track. Rumored to have been discharged from the Republic Fleet for insubordination, Tani lived life as an independent mercenary moving around from job to gig. From citadel defense to severing aboard a Capsuleer carrier three times, each of which she was deployed and survived one time. Somehow making her way to Venal (Potentially after cutting ties with a Capsuleer client) she took up work on the race track to make some money. She ends up becoming one of the most feared pilots on the course, being both agile and fast at the same time.
Both of these pilots were killed with contaminated fuel that cuased their crafts to explode. An agent disguised as a member of the bit crew slide though security and deposited an unknown chemical into the pit’s fuel dispenser. In this state, it’s completely harmless - however, after being put Into the fuel tank of a fighter? Entire craft becomes a bomb the moment the pilot starts up it’s systems. Both pilots were seated and ready to start their engines as soon as they got the order that the race was about to begin.
After the crafts exploded, it set off a chain reaction with the rest of the fuel that was being stored there, creating the damage it did.
The culprit behind this sabotage/Assasination is still at large, and we’re still questioning motivations. General impression is that since these were two of the most fiercely competitive pilots on the course, removing them would no longer make them a factor in future events.
Gossip aside, VPN has succeeded with it’s mission in supplying the affected station with the materials it needs for repairs. And we have the Capsuleers who made the delivery to thank for it.
Should anything else come of this event, we’ll be sure to mention it.
