(the following message transmitted uncoded and in the clear, to Port Scorn)

To: Lord Solar commanding, Port Scorn
Source: Morituri te Salutamus, Astropathic Choir
System Reference: B8, now known as Souls Cry
Subject header: AAR, contact with traitor combatant designated SEDITIOUS

//copy follows//

My Lord Solar.

On 999.M41, the Morituri te Salutamus, bearing a Warrant of Trade and exploring the system heretofore known as Souls Cry (formerly designated B8 on the charts), encountered a Murder Class cruiser known to Imperial Authorities as the SEDITIOUS. Said vessel was transiting what appears to be a stable Warp Conduit of some design, heading into the system from parts as yet unknown.

The SEDITIOUS was engaged upon its translation into realspace; having been forewarned of its arrival during a short scout of the Conduit, the Morituri te Salutamus was able to advantageously position itself for a crippling opening salvo. During a heavy engagement lasting some four hours, and eventually assisted by the Astartes vessel Argent Vertitatus of the most noble Silver Skulls chapter, the Morituri te Salutamus was able to score a telling hit on the traitor vessel's Munitorum. The SEDITIOUS was subsequently destroyed in a catastrophic engine explosion, lost with all hands, Emperor be Praised.

The Conduit is now under guard of the Astartes, pending further exploration.

I would like to commend Explorator Octavia Valinger for bravery under fire, when she executed external repairs to vital systems, and Second Officer Tertius, for his steady hand on the ship's guns, which I have rarely seen more well-handled on even a line vessel.

We are making for Port Scorn for stores, repairs and crew. I remain, yours,

Lord Admiral Kresimir Valinger-Hawkwood
etc

May I be the first to commend yourself and your courageous crew, sir!

A noble victory against the forces of the enemy! And to have a chance to work with a noble agent of the Astartes - I am most envious.

Were these traitors pirates, or foul servants of the Dark Powers? The name of their ship would suggest the latter.

Would you accept the purchase of a fine drink when next we meet in return for more details of the story?

Greetings, Lord Captain - my thanks for your commendation.

I can vouch that the Seditious was no pirate vessel. It ran in the Immaterium without a Geller Field, and in Real Space it trailed a cloud of warp-stuff with it that disrupted our own Choir. The symbols of the Enemy were upon her hull, and when I took a boarding party across we were repelled as much by the foul nature of the ship itself as much as her pestilential crew - if such horrors can be called crew.

Aye, a servent of the Ruinous Powers indeed.

We'll raise a glass when next in port, Lord Captain.
