Encrypted Message to Su Maehl

Post  UnityPrime on Tue Sep 20, 2011 4:09 am

Su Maehl,

In the aftermath of our battle, I had quite a few tasks that demanded my attention. I apologize for my sudden absence, and I hope things were able to continue in my stead. Once again, my most sincere congratulations on your... acquisition of promotion.

First of all, thank you for stopping me from interfacing with the Dragon. You may well have saved us all.

Secondly, how go Umart operations? I can only imagine that your position has made things considerably easier on the regulatory front.

Third, what are your goals vis a vis your new position? I have an interest in supporting your efforts, if only because I enjoy watching the havoc you sow.

Prime,

I know what you mean with regards to dealing with internal matters. It's been hard on my end too. So much life lost, and not even from the hands of the Fleets of Fate. Speaking of which, what on Earth were those blue creatures that littered the battle arena?!?!

UMart goes spectacularly! We are on target with openings across the Polar Expanse. Hundreds of locations are opening weekly. We are getting deep penetrations on some planets, others we're providing more cursory service at this point, depending on profitability and sustainability. Within a year from date, we'll have over 5,000 locations opened, maybe even 6,000. Within the next three years, it may exceed 10,000!

In addition to stores, I've also expanded UMart product lines to include distinctive products that are otherwise unavailable in the Iron Republic, or at least at the quality we'll provide. For example, I've had your production team design what is considered lo-tech electronics, as the demand is exponential for such items. Things such as personal communicator devices that are not connected to FTL networks, personal computing devices, and other basic electronics. My favorite part was making sure these electronic components could be repurposed for other electronic needs. In other words, not only were these electronics useful as individual components, but if certain other FTL-capable devices were damaged, these components could be used to repair them, and at similar or lower prices than their Iron Republic counterparts! Just another reason UMart products are superior to their counterparts.

As a side bar, I am also making UMart goods available beyond the Iron Republic, mostly through other Maehl Holdings' projects. I have a subsidiary or two that require convenience store products. While I mostly stock these stores, and brand them, as UMart, I cross promote them with Free Systems products. I do so for two reasons: first, IGE, the catering company providing UMart with most of its prepared food items is known universally through UMart; second there are some items that are only found via UMart, and thus it does not conflict with local non-Iron Republic industry. I then fill in the blanks with a mix of UMart and local industry. As per my business model, everyone wins!

Regarding our recent encounter, let's just say that's what friends are for. We've been through a lot in the last few months, and it's the least I could do. Speaking of which, you recently repurposed a personal computer of mine I was unable to manage. How did that go for you?

Regarding my stockholdership, I've come to realize that things are infinitely more political than I had originally intended. When I had the opportunity to buy into the Iron Republic, I was hoping to utilize the fewer restrictions to exponentially increase profitability of my ventures. While this was true for UMart, it was not as much for my other ventures. Granted, Maehl Holdings' central services, Logistics, has seen a dramatic growth in all areas, but it's not quite what I envisioned. However, I can't escape the pratfalls of the image the Iron Republic beyond the borders of the Iron Republic. As a result, I've had to formally resign as CEO of Maehl Holdings, IRLC in order to keep some clients. Suffice it to say, it's been rather frustrating. I'm still navigating the proverbial minefield.

I don't understand what you mean by havoc, Prime.

With regards to my immediate goals, I am currently attempting to make some finalized expansions in the IRLC arena. I am also hoping to hold an IIC conference to help inaugurate its new headquarters on Henner 12. I will send you a personal invitation to attend. Some of the study projects we will be initiating for the betterment of all will be announced at that time. With regards to my new IRS (Iron Republic Subsidiary), also called Maehl Holdings, I will be engaging in some weapons development for personal use (can you believe we're responsible for funding our own defense forces?!), and I'm thinking of a tourism subcompany, to expand tourism beyond the borders of the Iron Republic. I'm also investing in what are considered "lesser" beings, and products geared towards them. Namely, the Tzira, as they're an undervalued market in the Iron Republic.

As it relates to other grander endeavors, I will keep you posted as they come up. As always, I'm looking for the competitive advantage against my peers, so if any projects come to mind, let me know.

Yours sincerely,
Stockholder Su Maehl

Su Maehl,

Thank you for your attention to this project. I apologize for my recent silence, but the battle at Unity Core has left me with some...scars...which I am still dealing with. Currently, we are in the process of perfecting next-gen computing (quantum processors), and so I have not had the opportunity to work directly on U-mart efforts.

This aside, have you had the conference yet? If not, I would be quite interested to know when it will be. It would be good for me to meet some of the stockholders face to face.

Prime,

Things have gotten hectic here recently. I don't understand how Stockholders manage to have any free time to themselves. Granted, they have clones that toil for them, but it seems like a wrong thing to do. While I do have my clones, they aren't the same type of clones that my peers use. Oh well, it doesn't help that while my ventures are not as monetarily rewarding as my peers' ventures, I'm pretty sure I have more of them. And, well, since I'm not the hands-off sort of person, I've had a lot on my plate.

I have multiple residences across the universe. My formal planet of residence is Esiroh 6 within the Iron Republic. However, I have a special place in my heart for Henner 12, where I am building a formal secondary residence. I would complain about having to live in the Iron Republic and its strictures regarding how life should be lived, particularly for a Stockholder, but it would be disingenuous as it is precisely the life I signed up for when I made a bid to become a stockholder. Thus, I miss my old life but cannot complain about my new one.

Hence, I apologize for the delay in response to your message. I'm planning to hold the convention within the next few weeks. Let's see who comes around for it. You'll get an invite when it's ready. However, any time you want to meet in person we can always rendez-vous on Henner 12.

I'm eager to see the next phase of your computers. They are such marvelous things among your kind.

I'm sorry to hear about the difficulties you encountered and the scars they've left. If you need anything in that area, please do let me know.

UMart goes well. Nothing to report other than landmark profits, employee satisfaction, and continued growth.

Yours sincerely,
SM
