Spock and Senate feared dead on suicide mission to prevent armageddon
For the first time in weeks, a feeling of relief has washed across the Federation at warp speed. However, all it has given the Empire is time to grieve those billions lost.
The Hobus supernova has been contained by an artifical singularity. The gravity of the black hole is drawing the subspace shockwave into it, and will end its momentum in the Romulus sector as the largest such black star known this side of the Great Barrier.
++Breaking news: only 10% of Romulus evacuated so far++
Reports from early listening probes indicate that Hobus has gone nova, and will strike the Romulan home system faster than expected: in the next week, worse than many scientists had feared. The Federation Council has confirmed a vessel of classified specification has been sent to attempt to create a black hole and absorb the shockwave. However, it is believed that no vessel will make the journey in time to prevent the destruction of Romulus.
The location of the Senate and Romulan leadership is unknown at this time.
Federation-wide reports are expected to be interrupted by the subspace effects of the explosion. Please keep connected to your local planetary news service for possible evacuation orders.
Hobus star will go nova “at any moment” – Romulus to be evacuated
The sum of all fears has come to pass: a supernova in local space. The star Hobus, for centuries of recorded history, was a typical mainsequence star in Romulan space, with planets used only for mining. However, in the last few months, the star has transformed, through some unknown process, into the most dangerous object in known space, fuelling fear across the Empire and beyond.
