The Sigma Signal
"If it didn’t happen, we’ll report it anyway."
|Sigma Station Commander duncanj reports that the intermittent communications blackouts that have been plaguing the Station have now ceased. He feels this is perhaps because Xylan's orbit has now carried Sigma Station out of the interplanetary plasma conduit that exists between Zanyck and Osiris.|
|Tickenest Makes First Million!||Tregina|
Sigma Station resident tickenest, interviewed in this publication 2 months ago, succeeded
in making his first million credits in the stock market on Fri., July 18, at 16:38 hours.
Tickenest says it's exciting being Sigma Station's only millionaire, though he says he knows that that will change soon. As far as plans for the money, he says he intends to buy his own mansion, followed by his very own spaceball stadium (take that, duncanj!) Still, he says this in no way means that he will cease to invest in the stock market, saying he’s sure it will continue to be his primary moneymaker for years to come.
When asked if he had any gems of wisdom for his adoring fans, he said he would have to charge 500 credits for anyone who would like one. "I didn't get rich giving out lots of advice and happiness for free, you know!" he comments. He also notes that if you happen to see a trail of credits lying around the station, "I'm sure they're mine, so please return them to me ASAP. Thanks!"
Recently, two young hooligans visited the theatre to watch the play
'Othello'. They did not enjoy the play and began verbally and physically
attacking the performers. This continued until all performers had left the
stage. When they left the two members of the audience threw rotten fruit at
The two riotous youths wish to remain anonymous and so we will respect their privacy and not name them. We will however mention that it is not the first time these two people have been involved in criminal activities.
This has prompted ideas of having an entrance fee, with suggestions ranging between 5 and 25 credits. There has been no official statement from the actors, but we hope to hear their opinions on the matter quite soon.

Where is Obiwan? last seen wondering aimlessly around the station in the early hours of 29th May, nobody has spotted him since. His disappearance has raised questions about the level of security around Sigma Station But where is he? Some believe he may have been kidnapped, others say he is ill, while there are people saying he is just on holiday. But it has been a long time, and we are still hoping that he is out there, somewhere. I will be searching for him, so why don't you.
