Earlier this week, there was reason to be hopeful that the loss of contact with Minerva was a mere technical glitch. Sadly those hope were to be dashed when recon missions from the Fourth Fleet made starfall at the system. Initially, the Fourth Fleet elements were prepared to render technical assistance or at worst repel a Kriak incursion into the system. They were instead shocked to discover elements of the Shohan fleet present in the system, enacting a blockade against any and all traffic in or out of the system. Despite their entreaties for some news of the Terraforming teams present on the planet, the ships were turned away by a Shohan blockade with only the most brusque of communications, and unmanned recon drones have confirmed that the system hosts an increasing Shohan military presence. Fourth Fleet is on heightened alert while the Senate and the diplomatic corps scrambles to assemble a mission to the Shohan in attempt to settle whatever issues have arisen on the planet.
