I-RED Tea and Press Conference

This ficlet is based directly on chatlogs from the in-game event hosted by I-RED, but retooled as a narrative from Sakaane’s point of view.
Some portions of dialogue or actions by other characters at the event are not represented, because Sakaane didn’t eavesdrop on everyone. :)

En Route to Malkalen V – Moon 1 – Ishukone Corporation Factory

I-RED has been in full operation for three years and we would like to thank those leaders and allies who have made it possible with a grand ceremony. Through hardship and prosperity, I-RED has endured these long years and made a name for itself as a forward thinker and fighter for Free Trade and greater CONCORD authority in the cluster. The vision of one man turned into the dream and cause of many, and I-RED will continue to forge new relations among all four empires and beyond—all while helping to expand the influence of law and order to regions lacking.

The information stream flowed past Sakaane’s mind’s eye. Her implants automatically decoded the data, effortlessly reforming the otherwise incoherent bits into ordered words and language the organic part of her brain would understand.

Outside, a warp tunnel formed and then eventually collapsed. The hull she was plugged into was an Amarr shuttle affectionately called Firefly and it steered itself toward the stargate. She paid it scant attention. The fastest route to Malkalen from Intaki was mostly lowsec, but today, due to the handful of baseliner passengers on the shuttle with her, she had chosen to go via Stacmon which made the journey mostly through hisec. The passengers had gladly taken advantage of the opportunity she’d offered to go so far and so quickly compared to normal transports.


Admiral Noir crashed The Wandering Saint into Ishukone Headquarters in Malkalen today, destroying the peace summit that was to have taken place. A Nyx! He crashed a goddamn Nyx into a station!

I was out on maneuvers when it happened. They pulled us in. They pulled in everyone.

‘Noir’ is a name I heard often at the academy, and always expressed with great respect. He was celebrated, even revered by some Gallente. No one knows what to think. What else can you do except watch in horror when something like this happens? That he would kill so many innocent people is incomprehensible. A lifetime of achievement now stained by this, a violent act of terrorism when a true attempt for peace between these empires was being made? How could he have thought his actions were in any way appropriate?

Otro Gariushi was on the station too. Since hearing about these peace talks being promoted by a Caldari I started reading up on his career with Ishukone. Gariushi was a sole ray of hope for the State, a real chance to lead them to overcome their hatred of the Gallente, which I think could have promoted the same for the people here. In all likelihood Gariushi is dead, a capsuleer unable to clone because he was outside his pod when the crash happened.

I have no doubt others will try to keep his call for peace alive. I can’t see it happening now.

There will be war.
