Addendum – General Orders and information 2nd Fleet 4th Division
Classified Level 3
To:Fleet Captain X Wise,
CC: Bridge Officers 4DVSN.
Make no mistake we are facing several threats on several Axis we are responding in kind. We are stretched thin and will be so for the next 3-4 days ((Shifts)). We Believe the forces assaulting Cerebus are a mix of the following factions:
Rouge Torgoth Ships from their 5th Contingent.
The Togoth Ships we believe are commanded by General Montarg. General Montarg was in command of the Hegmony forces assaulting New Babylon last year and then the massacre in the Grendel System. The New Babylon colony assult was considered a raging success by the Arvonian 3rd Fleet and as such evaluate probability of that some Arvonian ships may desert to his battle call especially given recent strained relations as High.
Of the factions we are only formally at war with the Krelians. I have a writ of hostilities allowing us to engage all of the above forces without warning inside the Cerebus System. Surrendered N’tari and Arvonian ships are NOT to be harmed without due cause, even if they are mixing with still hostile ships. Use extreme caution with use of Area Of Effect Ordinance.
This Order does NOT apply to Pirate, Torgoth or Krelian ships, Prisoners of those last factions should be taken when practicable, however the defense of our ships and assets are the priority at all times. the 122nd Marines are mobilizing but will have to travel a considerable distance as the Illian/Reha Gate is still non-functional. What would of taken a few hours is now going to take days.
