Essence of Nightshade – Part 6

[Read Part 5]

Alright, here it is, the last major chunk of the story of Nightshade. This first section is the verdict from Okane’s trial, pulled from the Glaucus DoJ court transcript database. I’m trying to figure out how this whole mess started – at least, as far as such a thing is possible. President Fares and Commander Melkonian were the previous heads of Oculus and Aegis, respectively.  Their histories are interesting, especially Fares’ connections to the Okane family (protege of then Minister Dasha Okane). Melkonian was a classic Aegis’ idealist, a little high strung and prone to anxiety, which as you’ll see, will be relevant.

While trying to determine possible locations for the underground bunker mentioned is Ms. Beshimov’s testimony, I found this article from Panopticon News.  Or should I say, “News,” given the unprofessional nature of the Panopticon.  Most of its content is anti-government conspiracy theories, but, Mr. Offer DOES do SOME insightful research into normally taboo topics.  As long as you ignore the gossip columns.

[Dan Note: Part 4 has a fair amount of very graphic and disturbing language and content of violent, sexual, and just downright disgusting nature. Reader discretion advised and etc.  I recommend some nice cat pictures afterwords.]

 

In order to understand the fallout of Okane’s mutiny, I’m including this article from the Glaucus Journal of Science and Medicine, since it’s conceivable that readers of my finished dissertation may not have access to the database.

The following is an email correspondence I discovered while searching through the Glaucus Department of Justice files.  It was located in the evidence logs, meaning this email was likely used as part of trial proceedings.  I believe I may be discovering a greater connection between Okane and Nightshade.

I shamefully admit I was relatively unfamiliar with Okane before these investigations.  Luckily, there is abundant information available in the archives, including this transcript of an interview conducted by The Athenian.  And yes, I’m aware of the public perception of them as puppets of the government, heavily censored and spouting propaganda, but I’m also not an idiot and know how to separate fact from talking heads spouting Minervan Dogma.  Regardless, this was a key turning point in the public’s perception of Okane that lead to him being able to do what he did.
