Schmidt Port, Jeirretes
I made it back into 10th controlled space, but received a messaged as I was passing Schmidt Port that I was to stay in-system and patrol for raiders and Nova Imperium sedition-ists. I guess they've already heard the news. Still, I think it is best to get my message to HQ, the message I left with that mechanic should reach Tavares Point by the end of the week, but I could get there faster...but I have orders, and this IS the navy.
I still can't believe that Nova Imperium (NI), would stage a coup that close to the Capitol planet...they are really bold. Question is, how did they manage to assume control of the station and the system police assigned to the station? Probably over my pay grade to find out.
Something else, on my way back I was interdicted three, count it THREE times. Each pilot said they received contract to find me and kill me. What's even stranger, I haven't talked to anyone since I left Jones Dock, not even hailed or pinged nearby stations. They have followed me since I left, but why. My hold was empty, unless they were after some data I scanned while cruising through the Imperial system.
[checking computer logs and scan data]
This...isn't good. I picked up a data packet meant for some senator loyal to NI...it has details of system security routes, weaknesses in the system defense grid as well as planetary defenses. They are planning a full on invasion of the capitol!!!

Computer, set course for Elysia, notify system security that there is a Class-S security breach, attach a copy of this data packet to be opened by station commander ONLY. Encryption level ZED, non-classified.
