Disconcerting EEF Actions (wk2)

**encrypted to FM Strykker only**

Dear Field Marshall Strykker,

It has come to my attention that the EEF has recently deployed approximately 1000 E-Strain troops to Druzi Prime. The effect, whether intentional or not, was the mass slaughter of innocent civilians, most of whom were staff members of Maehl Holdings. These innocent civilians, mind you, were in the middle of participating in a pep rally welcoming home refugees and in celebration of the detente of hostility between Druzi Prime and the Trilat. We had just defeated the Kasanthian rogue troops, received millions of donations to cure the disease they had spread, and the lifting of the Iron Republic quarantine on the planet. Therefore, instead of celebrating life and renewal, the residents of Druzi Prime are burying thousands of dead.

Three things come immediately to mind, Field Marshall Strykker, in relation to this event. 1) This action is in violation of Treaty 2218 through both the deployment of E-Strain in Iron Republic territory; 2) Military action in Iron Republic space where there is no imminent threat or request for action; 3) Currently, the Iron Republic is not aware of either of the two aforementioned points, despite the fact that I have approximately 10,000 pieces of evidence verifying the same.

I do not, however, wish to blackmail you for personal gain. I do, in its stead, wish for retribution. I want retribution for every crying face that I looked at when I told them their loved one was mowed down giving out food to the homeless. I want retribution for senseless death that occurred on Druzi Prime due to the action of one of your subordinates. I want to have back every happy, smiling face that I employed; those who trusted in me to keep them safe, who performed admirably given the environment, who when faced with a charging enemy did their best to keep safe as many people as possible. I want each and every one of them to return to their families. I also want to never, ever, have to tell the next of kin that their family member died, not in the line of duty performing military action, but disbursing medicine to the sick and dying. And I want you to do both for me.

I know that the action of reviving my employees is neither easy nor cheap. If it were, I would have done it myself. But those are my terms, Field Marshall. I want my employees alive and well with their memories, and I want the means to ensure that whenever an employee dies on the job that they can be returned to their families accordingly, safe and sound, e.g. by cloning.

I am a straightforward business man, Field Marshall. We have done business in the past, and the Draco Constellation is one of my clients. I, therefore, anticipate a response addressing these demands in a manner worthy of the respect I have given you in the past.

Yours sincerely,
Su Maehl, CEO
Maehl Holdings

Mr. Maehl

First of all you clearly mean to blackmail me since if you didn't intend that would wouldn't have mentioned your "10,000" pieces of evidence or the Iron Republic's lack of knowledge of them. As to your telling the Iron Republic, frankly I doubt they'd care if you did tell them. After all its not as if Firedome city would have survived the first TRILAT attack if it had only been defended by the lone ship the Iron Republic saw fit to dispatch. And to be very frank if you think Druzi Prime is at all safe right now you are very much mistaken. Are you not aware that the TRILAT has turned your moon into a giant battle station? I'm also sure you aren't aware of just how dangerous that creature sealed in the recently discovered tomb actually is. Understand that I am not at all exaggerating when I say it threatened every living thing on Druzi Prime.

But on to your points. Except for a very small pilot program the EEF does not have any E-Strain among our ranks. Now its true that our ally the Uloh Free Confederacy does have many E-Strain but the Uloh Free Confederacy did not sign the treaty which you reference.
Also if you look closely at all the news reports you'd notice that not a single civilian causality has been blamed on the E-strain, nor has any evidence been found that points to one single civilian injury being the fault of any Manslayer that day. In fact more than one report seems to point out how unusually restrained they were during this attack.
Lastly unless you have complete brain and memory scans of all your lost employees its impossible to clone them and restore their memories.

Luckily we have some other methods open to us that should be able to restore most of them easily enough. I won't even charge you for it. All you need to do is bring the bodies here. Sadly the methods I speak of are not legal in Iron Republic space and of course I wouldn't want to make you party to anything illegal. So feel free to bring them here to Refuge or Draco and we'll do what we can. I can't promise that we can restore everyone but we should be able to help most of them.

Please keep in mind however that I'm not making this offer because of your threats or because I feel the EEF or I personally bare any responsibility for this. No I'm doing this because I happen to agree that people shouldn't be made to suffer in wars not of their making any more than I think people should be placed at risk for the sake of profit. Maybe you should keep that in mind Mr. Maeh. I'll expect to hear from you regarding an arrival time shortly.

Dear Field Marshall Strykker,

I acknowledge your point regarding blackmail. I admit I deviated from the dictionary definition, as I was referring to intent. In retrospect, I suppose I was merely comparing my response to that of the Iron Republic when they hold a damning piece of evidence against you. You are right, I should have worded my request differently. I was overly emotional in my response. I will not make it a habit again in the future.

I will take you up on your offer, Field Marshall. I have offices in the Draco Constellation. I will ship the bodies there to be brought back accordingly. They should arrive within a few days. However, you have not addressed the issue of future service for the same.

With regards to what the Iron Republic is or is not doing, I concur, I find it extremely odd that I have not been asked to provide video footage of the chaos, which I have from the ground. Regarding my evidence, however, for your edification I will have my men, once in the Draco Constellation, hand you over a copy of what I have for your perusal. I am a man of my word, Field Marshall, and when I say I have something, I mean it.

Threats to the inhabitants of Druzi Prime are many, Field Marshall. We handle them as we must. As I am aware, the matter underneath the surface of Druzi has been handled, has it not? Regarding the wormhole and the station that guards it, which as I am aware currently houses, or will house, military forces from a variety of nations and corporations, not just the Trilat. If you wish, I can arrange for you to station troops there as well. It would require working hand in hand with the Unity and their...troops, if your forces can stomach working with them.

I appreciate your candid response, Field Marshall. My men will liaise with you shortly.

Yours sincerely,
Su Maehl, CEO

Mr. Maehl

No at this time I have not offered any future services for the same. It's not my intention that the EEF should have to spend resources every time one of your employees get themselves killed. After all its a dangerous universe. In the future if you have need of similar services again we can work something out at that time.

Field Marshall Strykker.

Dear Field Marshall Strykker:

Thank you for your consideration and/or response. The loss of my staff so needlessly perhaps forced my hand too greatly. I appreciate your willingness to assist my staff on this occasion. Your people were good, and have allowed my people the ability to continue their work around the galaxy. Thank you very much for your assistance, and I regret the forceful nature of my prior request.

My only last request, for which I do not expect a response, is that you look over the information my team left in your care regarding the E-Strain landing on Druzi Prime. It definitively shows that the E-Strain could belong to no other group other than the Uloh Confederacy. While I no longer wish to hold this evidence over your head, I do wish for you to be aware that this evidence exists, as it was provided to me by a third party, and that it is in direct violation of Treaty 2218. May it never be used against you, and if it is, may you be prepared to defend against it.

It is my only wish that the EEF continues to serve as a balancing force against the other nations of the Polar Expanse, and that we may continue to do proper business, as it is required and where it is mutually beneficial.

Yours sincerely,
Su Maehl, CEO
Maehl Holdings

**OOC - when my staff was resurrected, the team would have left a package labelled as "personal and confidential for FM Strykker" with an EEF officer. The package would be the modern equivalent of a flash drive with several hundred pieces of evidence verifying the vessels used, their markings, their strategic implementation, and corresponding comparisons with TRILAT E-Strain (vessels, markings, and strategic implementation)***
