Title: TL Armoured Transport Assumes Control of Burke Port Description: On October 6th, 3301 The TL Armoured Transport Company (TLATC), exercised a Federal warrant and seized control of Burke Port without a shot being fired, effectively making them the new governing power in the Deneb Algedi system.
Two weeks ago TLATC announced they would cease operations and initiate an investigation regarding the legality of the Deneb Algedi Corporation’s (DAC) operations in the sector. “What we found,” said Chief Financial Officer Grey Galris in a press conference today, “is that the DAC had numerous illegal backroom dealings with both the Jet Mafia and Youming communists to secure their ability to operate unmolested while destabilizing their chief rival, the Future Party.” Once enough evidence was secured it was turned over to the Federal Department of Commerce as well as the Justice Department, and two warrants were issued - the first for TLATC to seize all DAC assets at Burke Port and assume governance of the system, and the second for the arrest of former DAC Chief Executive Lucien Corbeau, who was interdicted and arrested while trying to flee to Youming.
“We began in Deneb as an independent contractor, and today we are placed in the unexpected role of governing the entire system. But we have the confidence of the Federal Government as a corporation in good standing, and we will strive to be equal to the task” said Galris. "Our goals of developing the system and securing it from pirates and Youming communists are unchanged."
The Deneb Algedi Corporation, now under new leadership, will continue to operate in the sector in a reduced capacity and under strict Federal scrutiny.
