"Now you must understand we appreciate the hard work that the Temporal Division has done. Keeping the Iron Republic safe is an important undertaking. But the loss of the Polar Expanse to the criminal elements of The Trilat has damaged us financially. The Banking Guild markets of the Polar Expanse no longer have only the choice of IR licensed products.
This means we have an overproduction in the Brethren Expanse, and no Markets to move it to. The defense of Earth is no longer a top priority according to fiscal projections. On our last quarterly vote, Director Maehl’s Wing of the Stockholders only swung the vote against destroying Earth and replacing it with a theme park by one vote.
It is only a matter of time before the vote swings in my party’s favor."
Director Yamada spoke loudly through her robotic voicebox. The cybernetic Director was massive, but her face remained female. From her point of view Earth has caused too much trauma to the universe with her Earthers. Now she felt they finally had a chance to fix that by re-educating humanity without fear of Demonic influence or alien motivations.
It was a unique time to move quickly and reorder the people of the IR into a new path. But that would cost immense funds. Funds they could drain right from the Temporal Division budget.
