In the Court of Public Opinion - Stories
A look at what happened during and/or after Session 30.
Story - Red, White and Blue Press Conference
Game Date: 7/18/2006
Location: San Francisco, California
Prime holds a piece of battle armor over his head as he approaches the podium. His new red, white, and blue uniform is still freshly pressed from the cleaner. He sets the battle trophy down and clambers up the podium to proudly stand atop it.
"Friends of the Press. You may have heard that a few days ago, Alcatraz island was viciously assaulted by a group of fascist supervillains with ties to Nazi Germany. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of the Wardens, these fascist thugs were soundly beaten."
"But, it's not these relics from the past that I come to speak with you about today. Rather, it's to make my confession and issue an apology. I was wrong. In the past, I have extolled Professor Herbert's theories to you. Further research has proven them to be, quite simply, wrong. His rapid mutation evolutionary theories were fatally flawed."
"I am not, as I have claimed in the past, the next evolutionary step of humanity. Rather, my transformation was the direct result of alien interference in the form an incredibly advanced energy source of extra-terrestrial origin. Numerous other pieces of the alien artifact were successfully recovered by the Wardens over a year ago. But, it took many months of research before we realized their true nature. The Wardens have agreed that these precious artifacts must be turned over to the United States government."
"I have already supplied DARPA with all my research into these artifacts, which may very well hold the key to developing faster-than-light travel in a few years time. As we rapidly approach the time when humanity finally expands outward to the countless stars of the heavens, it is now time to consider what we may find there. In dimensions nearly identical to our own, humanity has encountered hostile and dangerous alien species, often with technology significantly more advanced than our own. We do not know if the same is true of our own dimension. But, if our worse fears are realized, there is only one group we can turn to for protection, DARPA's Project: Blue Sun. Only they have the skills, knowledge and technology to ensure humanity will bring freedom to the universe rather than fall under oppression here on our home, Earth."
"Thank you for your patience. Any questions can be addressed to the Wardens."
