Contact with Colony Lost
by By Iris Dunnigan
CITADEL, THE PRESIDIUM-All contact with a human colony in as of yet unnamed system on the far end of the Styx Theta cluster was lost three days ago. The small colonial team was working on terraforming the post-garden world designated WY-557 as part of a larger scheme by Weyland-Yutani corporation to rehabilitate such worlds for colonization. A spokesperson for the company said the following:
It is not unusual to lose contact with remote outposts. However, the company does not take situations like these lightly. We contracted a security team from Czerka Arms to investigate the situation and lend any assistance to the colonist, if needed.
News of the possible loss of WY-557 led to heavy trading on colonial stocks. Weyland-Yutani dropped an average of 3.5 points across multiple galactic exchanges, with the biggest lost of 11.9 points in the Milgrom Stock Exchange followed by 8.1 points on the Citadel Presidium Index. This is not the first time that the company has encountered sudden problems. Weyland-Yutani was the only survivor of the collapse of the Noveria Development Corporation after the events of the Reaper Invasion. Members of the W-Y board turned states evidence against the NVD which in turn allowed Systems Alliance prosecutors to bring successful convictions against two dozen executives of the NVD (see Court Upholds Verdict).
