Arden Says Confrontation Was Mistake
The Federation of Arden, recently involved in a standoff with the Imperium
in the Vilis subsector, has backed down unreservedly. In a statement
presented to the Duke of Vilis by the Federation ambassador, it is revealed
that the actions which led to the crisis were taken by a Federation Navy
admiral without the approval of the Arden Society.
Further, it was stated that the admiral had been "removed." If past
practice is any indication, that means that the blamed officer, along with
his friends and family, have almost certainly been executed.
All belligerent statements that were issued apparently from the Federation
during the crisis were not endorsed by their government, and came solely
from that admiral. The statement closed with a sincere apology for
the situation, and an assurance that it would not happen again.
