*Republic Information Service, News Broadcast, Emergency Announcement.*
Reporter: This is R.I.S. News Reporter David Lassiter with a Breaking News Emergency Broadcast.
5 hours ago, the Provisional Government of all Delta Quadrant Republic Worlds sent 1200 Naval Vessels, including the majority of the 21st Fleet, through the Transwarp Net to aid the Preston Republic against the threat of the Synthesiser-Borg Vessel.
The Provisional Government also announced a Declaration of a State of Emergency, bringing the Planetary Militia Defence Act of 2463 into effect. The Republic Planetary Defence Forces have begun forming Civilian Defence Groups in the event of an invasion of the Republic at this time.
The Militia Groups are completely voluntary but are recommended with the majority of Republic Naval Defences in Alpha Quadrant. Contact your local PDF Garrison for details.
The Star Travel in Conflict Act has also been bought into action, and all Transwarp Gates are being shut down, except for military use. Civilian Traffic is being ordered to disregard authorised Space-Lanes and travel directly from system a to system b via system c. Travel from Star System to Star System directly, through Deep Space is prohibited for your own safety.
The Provisional Government has announced that this situation shall remain in effect until a referendum is held on monday next week.
*Earth. The Republic Fleet exits the Transwarp Gate, forming up with the Allied Fleet.
R.S.S. Matthew Neilson. Matt and Will are walking down a corridor, on their way to the Bridge.*
Will: Isn't this going to leave the Republic almost defenceless?
Matt: Will, we still have well over 500 ships patrolling our space, and the Turanian Alliance is ready to defend our borders.
Look, Admiral Ramez agreed with me - we need every ship we can get.
That is what the Federation, The Republic, the Romulans, and the Klingon Empire thought as well. But look what happened.. Without proper cooperation we will have a galaxy that cannot stand united. Looking out for oneself has always brought misery to others. Its time you see that Jacob..
Jacob: and kiling people is a better answer. You would be the last person I would listen to now.
Turns back to the screen.
Jacob: so unless you have anything better to say I'm trying to set up my fleet.
