For Immediate Release

CRES’NAN PRIME (ORBIT) — Cres’Nan system residents should not be concerned about reports of multi-spectrum scanning inducing uncontrollable mutations in local sentient species.

In response to unsubstantiated and, frankly, irresponsible reports from local media, Captain Rick Johnson is reassuring all residents of the Cres’Nan system that the high intensity radiation beams used by the Terran Starship Expedient are considered to be perfectly safe for use on living beings. Side effects of prolonged multi-spectrum scan beam exposure are still under investigation, but are likely to be minor and temporary.

“There is no cause for concern,” said Captain Johnson. “My crew have double-checked the radiation saturation of our scanning systems and can reassure our Cres’Nan allies that these incidences of uncontrolled mutation being reported on Cres’Nan Prime, its moons, and other inhabited planets in the Cres’Nan system are unrelated to our activities and are probably completely coincidental.”

TUVIK CITY — Captain Rick Johnson of the Terran Starship Expedient extends his thanks to His Imperial Majesty, Cres’Nan Emperor Xving-Xving T’ang, for hosting his officers at today's reception at the Imperial Palace and extends an official apology to the Emperor, Imperial Princess V'ash and the Cres’Nan people for various misunderstandings that occurred during the visit, particularly those resulting in the death by ritual combat of Cres’Nan Supreme General G’arr.

“The road of interstellar diplomacy can be bumpy at times,” said Captain Johnson. “I wish to express my official regrets for today’s incidents, including the accidental destruction of the Nine Sacred Relics by my Science Officer, Commander Skip Stevenson. I also deeply regret the series of honest misunderstandings that led both to my temporary betrothal to Imperial Princess V’ash and the death of Supreme General G’arr in our subsequent ritual combat duel. I hope we can all put these unfortunate incidents behind us. I also wish to take this opportunity to underscore my continued respect for the Cres’Nan people, their laws, delicious cuisine and vibrant culture.”

CRES’NAN PRIME (ORBIT) — The entire crew of the Terran Starship Expedient offer their condolences to Cres’Nan Emperor Xving-Xving T’ang and Imperial Princess V'ash on yesterday's destruction of the Imperial Residence and significant portions of Tuvik City by the mutant hordes. Captain Rick Johnson and his crew stand with their Cres’Nan allies in this difficult time.

“I extend my deepest sympathies to the families of all those killed or displaced by rampaging mutants,” said Captain Johnson. “These unprovoked and, I wish to emphasize, completely unforeseeable attacks across all planets and inhabited moons of the Cres’Nan system have shocked my crew and I to our very cores. I call upon all mutants to cease their senseless campaign of violence and open peaceful negotiations with Cres'Nan authorities.”

In unrelated news, the media availability originally scheduled for Spacedate 5227.9 has been cancelled due to unavoidable scheduling conflicts. The Expedient Media Relations team regrets any inconvenience.
