New Home has violated our territory
As allies of my people, I feel it prudent to inform you of a small border incident that occurred between the Peoples’ Navy of Neubayern and the Navy of New Home.
The events are as follows:
3 New Home couriers jump in system & enter orbit around my home-world.
They are discovered communicating secretly with New Home diplomats carrying out activities incompatible with their status.
Fearing that such activities would be dangerous to our peoples’ safety and well-being, we dispatched a single missile frigate to ask them to heave to and be boarded, in order to check if the incident happened or whether it was just an innocent message that was transmitted.
No answer was received from any of the ships but they started powering up their jump drives ready to leave the system.
This left the Captain with only one option; to issue the ultimatum to heave to or be fired upon. We greatly fear foreign ships which violate acknowledged shipping laws so close to our home planet that they could unleash devastating secret weapons upon us.
Still no answer was heard, so the threat was carried through. Two New Home couriers were destroyed and the other escaped before it could be fired upon.
Our government deeply regrets the fact that New Home forced us to take this military action, when other, more peaceful solutions could have been found. We hope that New Home has learned that Neubayern territorial space cannot be treated with such contempt as was shown in this incident.
Spokesperson and First Commissar of the Peoples’ Republic of Neubayern.
