PRESS RELEASE: All Great Powers are invited to a ‘Planet-Buster Disarmament Conference’
The Government and people of Joyeuse have viewed with dismay and alarm the reported development by several Worlds of so called ‘planet-buster’ weapons. All sane people must agree that such weapons can never be allowed to be used, and for this reason we urge all Worlds to send representatives to a Conference to be held on Joyeuse on 1st March 5627 (Week 8) to negotiate the banning and dismantling of all such dangerously destabilising weapons, and to issue a joint declaration that any World using such weapons shall most assuredly perish at the hands of the other Great Powers of the Clusters.
A Spokesperson for the ‘Campaign for Deathstar Disarmament’ has welcomed this statement from the Joyeuse Government, saying,
“It’s exactly the kind of thing we’ve been pushing for all these years, the sooner these weapons are swept away for good the better for all concerned.”
L’Empreur Jean Pallois invites each of the Great Powers of the Clusters to send a small force (less than 1500t total displacement) to assemble a multinational patrol force to enforce the interdiction of Orphée.
Vessels should have sufficient fuel capacity to make the round trip from Joyeuse to Orphée and back without needing to refuel.
