It may take some time to break the code and decipher all the information contained within the message.
The governing council of Danu Chroi has issued the following statement regarding a recent news story about one of their co-founders.
We thank the Galaxy Galleria investigators for their concern; the PDA in question was in fact not in Miss Harden’s possession, it had been loaned to a Doctor Alden Sheridan who is no longer in the employ of Danu Chroi. While we were not aware of his present whereabouts, we would like to offer condolences to any friends and family he may have.
While it’s true that Vessa Harden has not been out in public in months, it is due to an ongoing medical condition. She’s recovering in an undisclosed location, and we wish her a speedy recovery. Until then, Aina, and the rest of the Council are keeping a cooperative eye on the Empire.
