PLNB Transmission XX219C-XX

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

PLNB Transmission XX219C-XX was a confidential Office of Naval Intelligence status report, sent to Codename: SURGEON by Codename: FIXER sometime after February 8, 2556. An investigation update on Operation: BLEACH, it consisted of a number of data queries performed by Dr. Brynn Morad of Sedra Medical which had been automatically flagged for review after the exclusion limit of Protocol 192-Delta had been reached.[1]

While attempting to determine a cause of death during the autopsy of Rowan Daoud, Dr. Morad repeatedly tried to access classified information relating to Indrid Lota and Element 120.V. Her security permissions were consistently denied; consequently, the system was locked and the incident was flagged by the SEDMED AI NOX. A video log of the incident, ONIFILE-KXV2-LOTA.IG, was uploaded to ONI Section Three agent FIXER, who subsequently confiscated NOX and had the SEDMED system purged and reset.[2]

Following this, FIXER sent PLNB Transmission XX219C-XX to inform ONI Section Three agent SURGEON of the incident. The report included excerpts of the search results Dr. Morad had accessed, primarily concerning the mining colony of Aleria. FIXER advised that the flagged information required security quarantine, telling SURGEON to standby for further updates.[1]

ESIL BOESIS FOUNDS MOLS’DESIAS
[… continues to see growth at an impressively rapid rate. In an unprecedented move to keep influence in the hands of the work force, mineral mogul Esil Boesis has founded Mols’Desias, a mining union that will help ensure stability and bargaining power for its constituents. Boesis hopes that the unification of what has historically been over a dozen fragmented private mining groups will provide long-term security for the profession.]
WORK FOR ALL
[… has some agriculturists understandably concerned about the future. But while the changing climate has certainly caused certain issues in the agricultural sectors, the resulting increased focus on mining Aleria for its rich mineral deposits has resulted in an overall influx of new employment opportunities.]
THE SANDS OF OUR FATHERS
[In the years following Aleria’s final rainfall, government officials continue to quell both political unrest and assuage the fears of the Alerian people…]
ALERIAN PLEA TO INNER COLONIES FOR SUPPORT FALLS ON DEAF EARS
[Despite numerous attempts to secure support from the UEG, the constant push from Alerian officials continues to go nowhere. Many Alerians seem split on where the blame lies. Whereas most are simply content to vilify the Unified Earth Government itself, other colonists, like Hicham Upadte, have turned their ire planetside. “They claim to call for help, but in reality they do nothing!” complained Upadte. “They want us to think that they aren’t being listened to, but they just want to keep all the power and influence to themselves. They sit on their hands while we lie in our graves!” While several Alerians interviewed agree that Upadte’s stance is not without merit, this sentiment certainly remains in the minority, as the lion’s share of colonists have no problem with blaming the UEG, viewing it as just one more piece of evidence to show that the inner colonies continue to be concerned only with their own welfare, most often at the expense of worlds like Aleria…]
THE FADING SHORES

DROUGHT AND TRADE TARIFFS MAKE ALERIA A HOT SPOT FOR ILLEGAL ACTIVITY
[With Aleria continuing to suffer from decades of drought – a period the colonists have coined “The Devil’s Kiss” – the colonial job economy has seen a drastic shift away from nearly every agriculturally based profession.]

TAREK BOESIS KILLED IN HIS HOME BY GANG
[Tarek Boesis, head of Mols’Desias, was killed in his home by members of the Alerian courier guildBlackdust”. The notorious anti-union smuggling group is currently claiming responsibility for the crime which serves – in their words – “to bring retribution to those who were responsible for the silent deaths of countless thousands…” Tarek Boesis was the grandson of Esil Boesis, who founded the Mols’Desias mining union in 2349. Members of Blackdust claim that Mols’Desias forced Alerian colonists into lives of crime by monopolizing the job market and forcing workers to work impossible hours for very little pay. With almost no competition in the failing Alerian economy, many colonists feel they had “no choice” but to turn to more illicit activities – such as off-world smuggling – in order to make ends meet…]
