M. Syagrius, that was at my own (2nd) 18th birthday party, not Osyn's.

Sorry for the off-topic, but I had to engage in a little rumor control.
My pardon, my memory isn't what it used to be.

I'm seeing a lot of speculation fly around but we've still yet to see an official statement from Customs. Though the fact we've yet to see a statement is...disheartening.

If there is no statement, then there is nothing to explain. It looks like it was just another successful operation with Quafe crying about it and making up stuff. Simple as that.

Honored are the dead, for their legacy guides us.

Considering the crew were all Caldari, whose to say they haven't already been informed and the matter settled internally? This was a matter of Caldari shooting Caldari. Quafe just supplied the ships that got destroyed.
Actually it's not and I think you know better.

Personally, I think we all know what this was, and in time will know the truth of it.

Until we do, fear not. I will remind you regularly.
Your weekly reminder, as promised.

While I guess I should feel honored that you find it worth your time to do this for me, but consider your reminder duly noted and disregarded.

I want to paint my ship Periwinkle.

Yes.

More flattered than honored I would suppose, but noted and disregarded.... I am not sure how that works but still, never fear, while my memory is often tidal when fixated impeccable.

I mean, I get it, but in the absence of any information about what actually happened, what conclusions are we supposed to draw? I'm totally prepared to be outraged if a crime has actually been committed (you might signally remember I went to war against my own Executor over an attack on civilians) but in the absence of evidence I'm not sure how upset I can get.

Well, I am. Not much.

For the first time since I started the conversation, he looks me dead in the eye. In his gaze are steel jackhammers, quiet vengeance, a hundred thousand orbital bombs frozen in still life.

Pieter, you know my mind on such matters as well as anyone in the State... well, save one. It isn't in my nature to accept and obey regarding something like this, without justification. My intent isn't to encourage 'outrage'. But what little one can do, one should do and I can do this.

A state actor destroyed an unarmed civilian convoy, our business or not, I would know the reason why.

Well, I wish you luck in getting an answer. I'd like to know what happened, myself.

Weren't it said already?

Not the case if the prohibition was onlyn on entering non-capsuleer traffic.

We can argue back and forth. All that will put this to bed is a release of investigatory results.

It should be noted that traffic at the border may be stopped for reasons that are at once legal and yet not directly related to the Kyonoke restrictions.

Even though our love is cruel; even though our stars are crossed.

True, though that would leave questions about why the freighters went down with all hands.

Usually you'd expect someone to have survived long enough to be arrested.

A valid point, As I recall the average crew survival rate for a ship of that size is 37.5%.

Funny thing, the average crew survival rate for an unarmed freighter being stopped by law enforcement interested in making an arrest, and not simply blowing them to hel.. is closer to 85%, because unarmed freighters who are pointed and webbed down by law enforcement have this weird tendency to not be able to shoot back and provoke a lethal response.

They may have outnumbered the number of available tacklers. The only alternative then would be to allow the untackled ships to escape - and the commanding officer may have decided it was simply better to ask forgiveness than permission and fired.

Personally I find it very unlikely that the Navy would have decided to simply butcher the escaping / surrendering crew of the freighters. There's simply no reason to do so. At the same time, it is almost impossible that so many prisoners could be introduced to the prison system without THEIR version of the story getting out by now.

This all adds up to either no survivors or else maximum security internment for the survivors. This would be a very unusual policy - but then we were already dealing with a zebra due to circumstances surrounding the interdiction of that convoy.

C'mon. I could see that as an explanation for why some of the vessels were destroyed, but all of them?

Indeed. And the State hasn't contested the claims that there were no survivors. So either there were none, or the State would rather be seen as executing an entire convoy of unarmed ships out of hand, with all of the political repercussions that might carry... than explain what actually happened.

That's a bit troubling, don't you think? Either the State did execute a bunch of unarmed ships they could have simply apprehended... or something worse was going on. Or something they think would seem worse. Troubling, either way.
