Informed sources today leaked information indicating that the group of renegade Vargr which have eluded capture since the end of the recent war has probably fled the Spinward Marches for parts unknown. Several alleged members of the group were reputed to have been captured when they attempted to hijack a merchant ship near here late last year, and have been held incommunicado since that time.
Admiralty public relations officer Captain Gaviin Ammern refused to comment when asked why the capture of some of the renegades has been kept secret for so long. [Challenge/JTAS 25]
In an official statement issued today, the Imperial government formally declared all worlds in the Regina, Jewell, and Lanth subsectors to have reverted to their pre-war travel classifications.
With this proclamation, the last of the emergency proclamations promulgated during the recent war are withdrawn, and life in the Marches returns to normal. [Challenge/JTAS 25]
A dispatch from Terra/Sol (0207-A867A69-F) dated 121-1111 reads "The first known victim to survive direct exposure to hyperspace arrived at Terra today, suffering from what medical experts are calling 'Hyperspace sickness'. Naval commander Ansel Churner, an engineering officer on his way to retirement on Prometheus, is being held in strict quarantine until specialists can determine the specific effects the exposure will have. Doctors working on the case are qouted as saying that preliminary tests indicate that Cdr. Churner is in good condition, but is not mobile".
"Three members of the engineering department on the Tyrol, a Rome, Inc. luxery liner, were killed. Circumstances of their deaths have not been released at this time".
