Orly/Numeria XX-XXXXXXXX

Received 22 June-2258

Report recived from the INN reporter in Orly:

"Behind me in the distance, you can see five massive rockets dominating the distant skyline even though their launchpads are more then a mile in the distance. The buildings of the Space Center beyond them gives a good idea of their size."

"I can hear the Numerian Anthem swelling to it's truimphant conclusion as the Numerian Prime Minister reaches the podium and is turning to face the crowd. The next words you hear are the Numerian Prime Minister."

"Ladies and gentleman, our future is behind us. And yet it is in front of us as well. Our now is both here and in the future as it was in the past. We begin our return to the stars today, to join our ancestors in their track across the universe. Our goal has never changed, never waivered."

"To the stars we shall go, where we will fullfill our destiny! If you be our ally then welcome with all our hearts! If you be our enemy, tremble for we will come for you!"

"If you choose to be a friend, we shall open our doors and welcome you. If you choose otherwise, we will remember you. Our journey has begun again, and we know not were it will go, or who we will meet while upon it. I am ready. Are you?"

"I can see the crowd, to a person standing and giving a standing ovation and shouting, 'Go forth the journey!'."

"Behind us the massive rocket engines are blooming to life. Their deep rumble is drowning out the chanting from the crowd..." INN reporter is drowned out for a few moments.

"...Can they hear me now? One by one I can see the massive rockets slowly lifting off, gaining speed and disappearing into the clear blue sky on pillars of flame. We have been told they are boosting the beginnings of a space based infrastructure into high orbit."

So it seems the Numerians have begun to fullfill their claim of Manifest Destiny. So their journey has, indeed, begun."

"This is Kelly Brightman, INN News."

man, you gotta realise that thor and bos fell out of the patriot tree (like the ugly tree, but instills patriotism instead of ugly) and hit every branch on the way down.

"Gone now, dispersed by the brutal destruction of this one day, was the belief that the Darkman and his army of the dead were so superior as to be invincible. By attempting to destroy the morale of the Marines, the Darkman had restored it to full vigor. Dia De La Muerto had failed in its objectives."
