The Children of Tothos cult has been prevented from detonating a nuclear weapon intended to destroy Archambault Terminal.
Crime correspondent for the Federal Times, Ethan Takahashi, delivered this special report:
“Terror struck the starport when cult leader Barnabas Cole announced the final ceremony to summon their deity, Tothos, by sacrificing millions of people.”
“As Cole prepared to activate the Lucifer Device he was shot dead by one of his followers, who subsequently revealed herself as Senior Agent Rochelle Karim. Other Federal Intelligence Agency operatives moved to arrest Cole’s acolytes and secure the control deck.”
“We’ve since learned that Karim’s unit was posing as Tothos worshippers eager to join the cult. They had staged the death of a team member to receive access to the starport.”
“The Lucifer Device has now been disarmed and secured, while station services are returning to normal.”

The Federal Times has been asked to assist with a criminal investigation into Rackham Capital Investments.
Journalist Bryanna Blanco reported on the details:
“Operatives from the Federal Intelligence Agency have contacted our offices regarding the recent deaths at Zachary Rackham’s company. We are cooperating with their inquiry and have agreed to share all relevant documentation.”
“The Federal Times has been monitoring the suspicious activities of ‘Calico Zack’ for years, so we’re relieved that the authorities are at last taking these allegations seriously. Our discoveries about Taja Gavaris – who seems to be clearing the path up the corporate ladder by any means necessary – are of particular concern.”
“We expect Rackham, Gavaris and many other ex-pirates masquerading as businessmen to answer all charges brought against them.”
