Senator Kenneth Aoznol sits at his desk, drumming his fingers, whilst tapping his chin in thought. His gaze was fixed offscreen, perhaps toward some interesting vista scape unavailable to the camera view. His face seemed only serene, and though the rosy youthful brown face of a middle-age man hadn’t returned to its former glory, there was at least some flush of colour. He drummed a few more times before suddenly stopping.
“I found the bastard. Well, bastards…and in the LAST place I’d really want them.”
Aoznol flicked the thought with a wave of the hand and faced the camera pick up.
“The bastards in question appear to be two of Intrepid’s initial investigative recon patrol, listened as K.I.A. But they got out; damn they managed to get out!”
He let a smile edge onto his face and a chuckle roll across him boisterously, as he tried to settle down to continue his log.
“To think that this entire time they went scurrying from a pack of wolves, to a den of hyenas…its damn near brilliant. I’ll have to keep that in mind if anything.”
The Senator let the smile fade, and his face took on a more serious edge, eyes fixed to the screen as if they were somehow radars for telepathic homing missiles.
“I found them and it’s a start, but I need more help. I need YOUR help, and I trust you and only you. I know this is going to be tough concerning the circumstances, but this has to be done. The UEE government is damn near two steps from hell, and we’re already in shambles. WE need to figure out what’s really going on, and I can only do so much digging from here. You already know that, you were part of the bureaucracy once and you know that things have to be done; any means necessary.”
Aoznol typed at a few keys and data screens of all sort appeared. A database profile of a known criminal, Janty, appeared and a wealth of information flooded the screens about him.
“I want you to contact this man; Janty. And I want you to send him a personal message from myself along with a copy of this datapacket. Tell him: Despite what he thinks, he’s not as off the grid as he thinks, but if he wishes to be so truly…”
Senator Aoznol’s face suddenly flushed with more colour and he edged a little closer to the screen. A quite charming smile spread onto his face, but the dark pools of brown, seemed to have become far more dark and took on an eldritch chill.
“If he wishes to be so truly, he will do a simple task in new hiring.”
The data popups all disappeared and only the dark charmed filled smile of the politico was all that remained.
“Good luck kiddo. End Transmission.”

------RETRIVING PRIVATE VID LOG #97: SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE FROM NETADRESS:S93C17H379TO SENATOR KENNETH AOZNOL -----
SUBJECT: OBJECTIVES COMPLETE
The video erupted on, with a gargle of static and distortion. A few seconds pass, before the picture cleared and a figure with cyber-helmet is revealed on the screen. Only the lower portion of the face is barely visible, as it’s not covered by the helmet and the voice seemed disembodied and heavily distorted.
“With a Black Wing, there is only Dawnfire as the sun sets on an Edge of Serenity.”
The figure paused, and a barely audible click was heard as the transmission commenced encoding, decoding, scrambling, distortion, and a number of other methods to lower its risk for detection and interception. A few seconds letter, the figure spoke.
“Your request has been granted. Janty was not hard pressed to deny what you ask, but he made it very clear and I quote: “The day will come, when the debt will be paid in return and in full.” The targets have been contracted to work for Janty for over several weeks now and shows no knowledge of the events in the dispatch you’ve given me. Both targets have been identified, as one Jack Reynolds, and his former wingman and now pilot Angel; last name unknown. However, upon further investigation, what you’ve initially sent appears to be correct. They are indeed the two traitors proclaimed K.I.A and somehow involved in the “Intrepid Report.” They’ve managed to get a vessel named Astral Queen and a female engineer; I’m currently doing a check on. At the moment, they are effectively under the protection of Janty, so I surmise to be no interference from any UEE forces. Until you deem it otherwise necessary, I will continue to shadow them, and report back any findings. Senator, I trust will take care of yourself."
The video feed faded into distortion and static garbage before going blank.
