Thanks to Chris "Cronoss" LaRoche.
It turns out LOAF will have to have another emergency surgery tomorrow so expect him to be out for the next several days or so. Don't worry, this shouldn't be anywhere near as serious as the situation of a couple months ago.
A report by Tom L. Keefer. Anhur border patrols were celebrating last night, following a very successful intercept. While on routine patrol, a squadron of Stag-class police craft encountered an unauthorised Monolith-class transporter attempting atmosphereic ingress. Scans revealed it to be chock-full of highly illegal Human Organs, much in demand by the rich, old and unscrupulous. Squad-leader Gibsen issued immediate weapons-free authority. Torpedoes were launched, and seconds later the cargo ship was little more than a burning hulk. I spoke to Gibsen yesterday, who said, "I just hope the unfortunate donors wanted to be cremated."
