Arvug The East Pacific Islands The Workers at the docks would be unarmed, except for tools and some drones used to lift materials, but would have a sturdy barrier. A worker comes in over the dock intercom, “Attention Serdians, we are unarmed and are acting in peaceful resistance to your unwarranted and unwanted military presence. Leave now or we will maintain our barrier. We will not be swayed.” The Workers all cheer from behind the barricades, there has to be maybe a hundred at best.
“Well it seems the Serdians handed the communists and anarchists a victory. If the reactionaries rise up, so be it. They’ll be dealt with accordingly. Maybe the anarchists will send them to a resort.” The Cat woman shrugs. “I mean This’ll result in violence no matter what.”
Seeing that the situation seemed to be escalating, the head of the Federation control tower staff turned to his Arvugian counterpart and said rather resignedly, "I don't think the people here are going to be very pleased by the presence of the Serdians here. He hands a datapad over to his Arvugian counterpart and continues saying, "It seems like their mere uninvited presence is escalating the situation. I don't know how well armed those protesters and workers are outside, but I don't want to take the risk of angering them further." He then points to a section of the datapad where some additional information was listed before finally saying, "If the supplies here that they have are important to us, I'd recommend telling them to rendezvous directly within Federation space in the Colonies, specifically around the port of Altamar in the Fentaine sector, drop off their supplies there, and then have one of our ships deliver it without much incident. That would probably help satisfy some of the parties involved and prevent some sort of bloodbath." He waits for his Arvugian counterpart to reply as he looks nervously outside the control tower viewports.
As this chapter of the history of Vukmire closes we are left with a bleak image of authoritarianism, total war for years to come, and a totalitarian hierarchy dedicated to weeding out any dissent within the population. However the galaxy is vast and time moves on as it always has. But perhaps Vukmire will not be as it always has, perhaps it it will become a beacon of freedom and democracy in the future? Or maybe it will simply dissolve into ash, preserved only in the annals of history. Only time will tell.
With the situation made clear, the Gambier bay just packs up and leaves for federal space where she will try to refuel and attempt the journey back home. "What a F*cking embarrassment." Cpt. Stryker shamefully said as the light carrier left.
With the news that the Serdian ship has left the planet following the poor timing, the Foreign Office has sent a letter to the crew of the Gambier apologising for the embarresment, confusion, and other not so nicities of the situation, and has also offered them a entry visa to visit any Serdian relatives the crew may have in Commonwealth space

Amidst growing fears of leftist revolutionary sentiment, the Venurian people hold a protest outside the presidential palace in Voykyk, demanding action from President Rrayss, who so far has done little to address it. A growing number subscribe to the theory that Rrayss, herself a communist who served in the anarchist-aligned militant Voykhoy Ggalmso group during the Banzhut occupation, is actually secretly in a secret plot with the communists to turn Venurian likewise into an anarcho-communist state, and outcry has become rather extreme, including in the Senate, where the right-aligned parties have coalitioned with the non-communist leftist parties to veto any motion put forward by the administration. Increasingly strong voices among the minority continue to call for military intervention.
Many even turn their gaze toward their queen, though they'd never state so publically, who is herself from a communist country, as paranoia over the ideology crossing over the border becomes rampant. Eventually, with public outcry reaching its peak, the hand of the President is forced, as she openly states her support of the revolutionaries and disavowment of recent actions taken on behalf of the Queen in regards to the quelling of supposed 'revolutionaries' on Areda, before announcing her immediate resignation from her position. New elections are scheduled for later in the year, as parties rush to put up new candidates.
Yeah... We've had lulls in activity every here and there, as you might have expected from an RP of just a small number of people that's gone on for 4-5 years, but we've always managed to bounce back and recover, and keep on going.
