Federal Admiral Vincent has declared a blockade of the Kappa Fornacis system to prevent the spread of the narcotic onionhead.
Speaking after a meeting at the Admiralty in Quenisset on Mars he answered questions from waiting journalists.
“The local government is failing to prevent the spread of this vile narcotic through the galaxy, so we must do so on behalf of the Federation. Any ship carrying this narcotic will be destroyed by our forces.”
The Farmer’s leader, Georgio Algeria has put out a plea for help.
“Please help us. This is our livelihood. If the Federation doesn’t like it then it must be cool. And you’ll be cool if you help us. Come and back us against the oppressors.”
