Gus Givens here, reporting to you live from the Hexham system, where just a few hours ago a terrible catastrophe struck.

The galaxy renowned orbital research institute known by its official designation as Research Station 2 was only a short while ago engulfed in an enormous explosion which consumed the station, while emergency ships have been dispatched and are currently scanning the area, it is presumed that all 297 research personnel aboard have perished.

Currently the Gal-fed authorities have remained tight lipped about the cause of the explosion and only authorised ships are permitted to venture close to the stations debris field, however speculation has been rife and ranges from illegal weapons research to an attack somehow initiated by the AI.

This is truly a dark day for us all and our thoughts here at ISN are with the families of those lost, let us hope that the cause of this explosion can be revealed quickly and help prevent such disasters from occurring in future.
