Seattle, UCAS. 8 February, 2076.
"Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I am Trent Brockington, and this is the Emerald City News."
The trid screen resolves on a pleasant, if generic anglo human male, with a fancy but conservative haircut, dark suit and a bright green tie. He looks directly out of the screen with a slight smile before continuing.
"Knight Errant and the Metroplex Guard are still on the lookout for the terrorist group which detonated a vehicle bomb just outside the Aztechnology Pyramid here in Downtown Seattle. 27 people lost their lives in this senseless tragedy, with property damaged estimated in the 900,000 nuyen range. Authorities ask anyone with information on this incident or the terrorists involved to contact them <HERE>."
A window behind Trent shows the aftermath of what appeared to be a significant blast, dark plumes of smoke rising from a large wheeled vehicle and several wrecked KE patrol response vehicles.
"Looks like the weather is going to hold up, continuing our uncommonly warm winter this year. Forecasts call for slight rain, with limited acidity towards the end of the week, it will be partly cloudy with a high of 13 tomorrow."
A popup interrupts the newscast, with an anonymous 1-shot commcode attached.
