This week Burke Port served as host to a conference held by the Federal Bureau of Corporate Oversight to work out new boundaries and operating guidelines for the growing number of Federal Corporations operating in the Deneb Algedi system. With the arrival of two more corporations in recent months, the system has become overcrowded. Tensions rose between Federal factions from LFT 1 and LHS 510 over territorial disputes within Deneb’s busy extraction sites, which erupted into a full scale war that lasted more than two weeks before the Federation finally decided to intervene.
While the Bureau worked to smooth relations between the two warring factions, it also sanctioned TL Armoured Transport Company, Deneb’s governing corporation, for failing to help resolve the issue.
“That was not called for” opined TLATC CEO Khalin Kilrain,“and we will appeal it. The Commerce Department created this mess when they granted license for these two companies to operate in Deneb, despite objections. When they decided to have at each other, we figured the best thing to do was to let them fight it out. Furthermore, we won’t honor any boundaries defined by this conference, as they don’t include the independents we have in Deneb. If these new interlopers try to operate outside of the common extraction sites, or interfere with any existing operation, then the Bureau can sanction us, because what follows will be bloody.”
