Brendon Wycheck Reporting Live
Hello everyone, Brendon Wycheck here again for the Global Newswire. It appears as though the Consortium command vessel, Zenlil, is not quite out of trouble yet. The Angelov incident is behind them, but it seems something else is happening aboard Zenlil as an as-yet unidentified body has fallen from the sky and landed in northern Augsburg, Germany. Strangely, no automated reports have been received from the K-1 network about this incident or who it may be. Bulgarian correspondent Rosica Grubo has been following Zenlil since the Angelov incident and is now reporting on site in Augsburg:
"Thank you, Brendon. Local authorities are already here as it looks like a body has fallen from the sky and landed in the middle of a primary school basketball court on the northern outskirts of Augsburg, Germany. Thankfully there were no children present to witness the fall, and teachers managed to keep order until authorities arrived and sent everyone home. The identity of the victim has yet to be iden--
Hey, reporter. We have identified the body.
Everyone, this is Augsburg Police investigator, Elias Drescher.
Uh, hello. The unfortunate soul who most likely fell from your Zenlil and caused this mess, her name was Carla Croft.
Oh, no... That is of course Pawn 19 of the Zenlil crew. I unfortunately do not know very much about her but if I remember correctly she was a systems engineer aboard the Consortium command vessel. I can't even imagine how she ended up here... this is a truly horrible turn of events."
Unbelievable. There you have it. Pawn 19, Carla Croft, has somehow fallen or been forcibly removed from the Consortium command vessel, Zenlil. It looks as though Zenlil and her crew have run into another problem of some magnitude, though no reports have come from the vessel or the Consortium, automated or otherwise, as the vessel continues its silent approach toward Ireland.
Carla Croft we've just discovered was the daughter of famous Resource War activist Jenissa Croft of the Gentle Doves. Jenissa was first known as the right-hand of the infamous Susan Lensworth, who of course famously died a martyr's death in 2015. With her death, Jenissa Croft took the reigns as leader and helped the Gentle Doves become the largest anti-weapons organization on Earth.
We'll be back after a short break with hopefully more information on just what is happening aboard Zenlil. This is Brendon Wycheck, Global Newswire.
